Karl Filachek, 
New Director 

Karl Filachek is the new Director of Security at DelVal 

Karl Middleman Named to Faculty at DelVal 

Karl D. Middleman, Music Director for the Bucks County Symphony Orchestra, 
has been appointed Visiting Professor of Music at Delaware Valley College for the 
1989-90 academic year. 

In announcing the appointment, College president W.H. Rorer III said: "Mr. 
Middleman's presence on our campus, along with visits by the Bucks County 
Symphony Orchestra, will provide our students, faculty and staff members with a 
meaningful addition to our cultural enrichmant program." 

Mr. Middleman, a resident of Philadelphia, has been Music Director for the Bucks 
County Symphony Orchestra for seven years. His conducting career began in 1970 
when he founded the Philadelphia Classika Symphony Orchestra which performed 
outdoor concerts during three summers. 

In 1979 he organized the Franklin Sinfonia, a chamber orchestra dedicated to 
performing a repertoire of new and unfamiliar American musical works. From 1980 
through 1987, Mr. Middleman served as Chorus Director at the Unitarian Church of 
Delaware County. 

In 1982, Mr. Middleman was appointed Music Director of the Symphony Club' of 
Philadelphia, only the sixth person to hold that position in the orchestra's 75-year 
history. Between 1985 and 1983 he was a conducting fellow at the Summer Institute of 
the American Conductor's Guild. In 1986 he conducted three performances at the 
Oregon Bach Festival. 

In addition to his conducting activities, Mr. Middleman is active as a composer, 
teacher and pianist. He was a member of the faculty at Temple University for 1 1 years 
and was recently appointed Music Director for the First Unitarian Church of 
Wilmington, Delaware. Mr. Middleman has been recognized by Philadelphia 
Magazine and the Human Relations Commission of Philadelphia for his outstanding 
contributions to cultural activities in the Delaware Valley. 

"I am very excited about joining the Delaware Valley College Faculty," said Mr. 
Middleman. "An educational institution is a fine place for the Bucks County 
Symphony Orchestra to become an important activity in the lives of everyone, 
especially young people. I am looking forward to all the mutual opportunities my 
association with Delaware Valley College will bring." 

Karl Filachek, recently named Director 
of Security for Doylestown's Delaware 
Valley College, draws on 28 years of 
experience in all divisions of the 
Philadelphia Police Department, and on 
several years as Security Chief at St. 
Joseph's University. He plans to make 
campus safety a joint effort between 
students and his force of 18 officers. 

His slogan, "Arm in Arm for Safety" 
states his basic belief that campus security 
is a team effort, that all on campus must 
assume responsibility for their own, as 
well as other's safety, as manifested in 
such actions as locking doors, marking 
personal possessions, and basically taking 
pride in the campus environment. 

Filachek stresses, "Apathy is out; 
empathy is in. By that I mean that 
students cannot have an 'I don't care' 
attitude about their own safety. They 
must feel a sense of responsibility towards 
security and take that responsibilty in 
order to maximize safety. Empathy is 
important for me and my staff to keep in 
mind. We must remember that we are" 
dealing with individuals, not with a great 
mass of kids. We must understand where 
they are coming from. Together, arm in 
arm so to speak, we can work to achieve 
and maintain a positive, secure and 
enjoyable campus environment." 

Mr. Filachek is a staunch supporter of 
the DVC policy on alcohol. "The 
Pennsylvania law says no one can drink 
unless they are age 21. Why should our 
rules be different? The students are part 
of a society which made the laws. As 
members of that society they must abide 
by them," he states. 

"Our job on campus is to enforce the 
policies and procedures, to make the 
DVC campus environment as pleasant 
and as easy as possible, not to create 
problems," he continues. He is eager to 
implement his plans to increase com- 
munications, to strengthen inter-group

Notes From 
The Security 
Director — 

Byf Karl L. Filachek 

"Arm In Arm For Safety*' ts the 
DVC theme for safety and security. As 
your new Security Director, I'd like to 
welcome all students to DelVal's campus, 
whether for the first time or as a returning 
student. Like our Freshmen, I also am 
new to DelVal. 

Our campus is very much like a small 
community and the security of it depends 
on the entire DelVal population. To 
depend entirely on the security officers 
of our college for thisf important function 
would only expose everyone to the whims 
of caprice where safety is concerned. 

As we begin a new school year, I will 
endeavor to publish an article bi-weekly 
which will delineate, explain and/or 
caution our community on the security 
situation at DelVal. I intend to tell it like it 
is. It is to your advantage to know what is 
going on in your community. At the same 
time I intend to provide some advice on 
how individuals can minimize their 
becoming victim to illegal activity. 

As a start we have initiated a shuttle 
van service on Monday through 
Thursdays, from 6:30 p.m. until 10:30 
p.m. This service is available to all 
members of the campus community. 
Stops are made in the main parking lot, 
library, Hort, Mandell and Allman 
buildings. I hof)e this service will be 

This irtkial'item ' is necessarily short. 
However, if you have an idea, question 
or suggestion concerning the Security 
Deparment, stop in and see me or drop 
me a note. I will be happy to conskier 
every item, and it will indicate your 
interest in our campus community.

Recently, the Ecology Class began a 
fish tagging program in Lake Archer. 
Over 100 fish were tagged and are now 
plying the depths of our pond. The 
species marked include the carp, goldfish, 
largemouth bass, catfish, and panfish 
(mostly bluegills). This is the beginning of 
an ongoing study to determine the 
condition of the populations in the lake. 
The tags are yellow dart type tags that 
are 2 inches long, they are located 
alongside the dorsal fin on the left side 
and are readily visible. Each tag is 
numbered and the information about 
that fish is stored on a computer disk in 
Mr. Johnson's office. Should you catch 
one of these fish, PLEASE return the tag 
to Mr. Johnson ( AgB 1 10, ext. 2326) and 
include as much of the following in- 
formation as possible. 
When Caught 
Type of Fish 
Length of Fish (either total or fork) 
Weight of Fish. 

To determine if the fish you caught is a 
carp or a goldfish, (the two species most 
frequently caught) use the whiskers or 
barbels test. If your fish has whiskers 
around the mouth, it is a carp; if it is clean 
shaven, it is a goldfish, even if it is not 

Your help in this matter is greatly 
appreciated. If you are interested, there 
is a loosely knit fishing club on campus. 
Trips to fish Lake Ontario, the Delaware 
River, Tohickon Creek and the Jersey 
Shore have been don^ in the fMSt. If you 
are interested, please stop by Mr. 
Johnson's office and get on the mailing 
Hst. The only requirements are a love of 
fishing, the ability to keep secrets and to 
be able to tell a whopper with a straight 
face. Good Fishing.

Expands Floriculture 


To complement its nationally renowned 
four year Bachelor of Science degree 
program in Floriculture, DelVal has 
designed a new, one year non-degree 
program, Floral Business, available for 
fall semester, 1989. It is geared to the 
mature student who might not have the 
time, need, or finances for the traditional 
degree program. The Floral Business 
program provides a good balance 
between professional and business course 
work, and is geared to help the student 
find quick entry into floral business. 

Dr. John Martin, Chairman of the 
Depjartment of Ornamental Horticulture 
and Environmental Design explains that 
"Delaware Valley College's Floral 
Business certificate offers many ad- 
vantages over design school, workshops, 
short courses and proprietary school. 
Each course earns full college credit 
which can be transferred to any degree 
program, if desired. It is the only program 
of its kind to be offered in Pennsylvania. 
People are starting to rediscover the 
tremcTxious career opportunities in Floral 
Business. We are ready for that re- 
surgence of interest." 

Dr. Martin ix>ints out that Americans 
are spending more on flowers, plants, 
floral design and interiorscaping than 
ever before, making Floral Business one 
of the fastest growing segments of 
Agribusiness. It represents billions upon 
billions in consumer dollars, world wide.

Business program at Delaware Valley 
College, write to Continuing Education,

DVC Riders 
Take Ribbons 

On June 18, 1989, two riders and two 
horses from Delaware Valley College 
took good ribbons at the Dressage 
Schooling Show held in Wrightstown, 
PA, sponsored by Bridle Path 4-H Club. 

Corrine Herb, a junior Equine Science 
major on DVC's Dr. Frederick, a Belgian 
cross gelding, and Lynne Willoughby, 
Assistant to the Director of Equine 
Science, aboard DVC's Andy, a 
Thoroughbred gelding, both competed 

Corrine and Dr. Frederick excelled in 
their training level one and two tests by 
placing third in each. Lynne and Andy 
took third and fourth place in their 
training level three and four tests. Lynne 
competed also on Turk, a Trakehner 
gelding, newly started in Dressage. They 
won two firsts in their training level one 
and two tests. 

Ram Pages Searches for 
Staff Members 

Ram pages need your help. 

We need reporters and photographers 
who are willing to take a few minutes of 
their time to submit materials for 
publication. One will receive 0.5 credits 
per semester for the effort which is 
applied toward Liberal Arts requirements. 
If the Wednesday 1:30 p.m. meeting fime 
is inconvenient for one to attend, other 
arrangements can be made. We also 
encourage clubs, faculty and staff to 
submit materials. Since a handful of 
people cannot cover ail campus events, if 
we don't know about the event or receive 
information, we can't print anything about 
it. The future of the student paper is in 
questiqn. There are some people to 
whom this doesn't matter one way or 
another, but there are other people who 
would be disturbed by this, as they do 
look forward to reading Ram Pages each 
week to catch up on campus happenings 
We want to remind everyone that this is 
a student publication, meaning student 
body, not two or three people strainmg 
to cater to the publishing desires of 
several hundred. Are you interested in 
joining the staff? Wguld you like your 
voice, your news and your concerns to 
be aired? Visit one of our meetings on 
Wednesday 1:30 p.m., basement of

A warm welcome to all new and

brings with it many feelings... enthusiasm, 
anticipation, warmth in meeting new 
friends and re-establishing old friendships, 
new independence, etc.. But along with 
these good feelings, often times there are 
equally strong feelings of fear, home- 
sickness, academic pressure and 
generally a feeling of being overwhelmed 
with the adjustment to new surroundings 
and respxDnsibilities.

relationships among students, admin-

In order to challenge the inevitable 
problems which plague any college 
campus, he plans to introduce several 
security innovations over the course of 
the school year which will maximize 
good feelings and minimize problems on 
the DVC campus. 

Mr. Filachek's empathctic approach 
to campus security is underscored when 
he stresses that his role at DVC is as 
Director of Security, not as a police 
officer. This concept is brought to light 
by the fact that he is never in uniform, 
but can always be spotted in jacket and 
tie - - an approach he feels enhances 
good feelings and creates no barrier to 
prevent positive interpersonal relations. 
His staff is uniformed at all times for 
quick and easy identification and to 
command respect which oftentimes, in 
itself, deters crime. 

A graduate of Villanova University, 
Mr. Filachek holds a Bachelor of Arts 
degree in the humanities and is a member 
of Alpha Sigma Lambda, the national 
honor society for evening school 
students. He attended a year-long course 
in special police training at Northwestern 
University and is a certified Municipal 
Police Instructor. Married for 31 years, 
Mr. Filachek is proud of his three 
daughters and three grandchildren. His 
spare time is filled fishing off of his boat at 
the Jersey Shore, tinkering at the piano 
and the accordian, building sailing ship 
models and furniture, and playing tennis. 

"My biggest challenge," Mr. filachek 
muses, "is to get our students to THINK 
security. If I can accomplish that, we're 
half way there!"

She took her ffrst organ lessons at age twelve. She was playing professionally at age 
14. Eleanor Gross has been learning, playing and teaching ever since. Her love of 
music culminated last year in the creation of the Community Conservatory of Music, 
located on the campus of DelVal. This summer she was named a member of the 
College's adjunct faculty as Visiting Instructor of Music. With a solid base of 
operations at the College, the Community Conservatory of Music will allow DVC 
students to enjoy the enrichment of many musical opportunities as they are 
incorporated into the undergraduate program. 

Living in Buckingham, this mother of three and grandmother of two initially put her 
love of music into practice with organ lessons when she was twelve. Two years later a 
local church hired her as Organist. Dolly earned her Bachelor of Music degree from 
Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey. She received additional 
training at the Ecole Nationale de Musique in France, and the Cambridge Choral 
Seminar in England. She learned the skills of managing a music school at the 
Management Institute, National Guild of Community Schools for the Arts in 
Massachusetts. Sharing her years of training, Dolly has been a private studio 
instructor of organ and piano for over twenty five years. 

Always involved in church organ and choir work, Dolly was most recently Organist 
and Choir Director at Saint Paul's Episcopal Church in Doylestown for seven years. 
Prior to that she was similarly involved with Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Trenton, 
New Jersey. Her current activities revolve around her position as Founder and 
Director of the Community Conservatory of Music where she also teaches. 

Knowing What a wonderful difference music can make in people's lives, Dolly had 
been dreaming for 15 years of a school which could offer musical opportunities to the 
community. The liason between DelVal allowed her dream to come true. Housed in a 
cozy historic mansion on the DVC campus, the Community Conservatory of Music 
opened last fall. 

Over 150 students, ranging in age from three to retired adults, have studied at the 
Conservatory during the Schpol 's first year of operation. The school is now a 
member of the National Guild of Community Schools for the Arts. Dolly is proud of 
the Conservatory's high calibre of instruction as well as of its broad course offerings. 
For further information, call the Conservatory at 340-7979. 


Adults in Bucks and Montgomery Counties now have the opportunity to 
participate in a national testing program designed to help them evaluate their own 
educational accomplishments and to get recognition of these accomplishments from 
their employer or from a college or university. The tests, part of the College-Level 
Examination Program (CLEP) of the College Board, are given every month, except 
February and December, under the coordination of Frank Hofstaedter, Chairman of 
the Mathematics and Physics Department at DelVal. 

CLEP, according to Hofstaedter, is designed primarily to serve men and women 
who have furthered their education by independent study, (correspondence courses, 
on-the-job training, evening school or other non-traditional forms of study. Many 
colleges are also using the CLEP tests to evaluate students with more traditional 
academic preparation. Various employers and agencies use the CLEP tests as a way 
to recognize college equivalency for promotion, admission to advanced training, 
licensing, or certification.

Those interested in taking CLEP tests should check with the college, employer or 
agency in which they are interested to learn how their CLEP tests results might be 
use. The College Board, an association of about 1,(K)0 colleges, universities and 
schools and the sponsor of CLEP, does not itself award credit or on-the-job 
recognition. Such credit of recognition is granted by the college, company or agency 
that uses CLEP scores. 

Two kinds of tests are available withiri CLEP. The General Examinations measure 
an individual's achievement in broad areas of knowledge. They are not based on 
specific college courses but, instead, seek to cover the broad scope of studies 
required of most students during their first two years of college. 

The General Examinations are complemented by a number of Subject 
Examinations, each of which is designed to evaluate an individual's accomplishment 
in the area of a specific college course. Tests are offered in subject areas ranging from 
Analysis and Interpretation of Literature to Computers and Data Processing. 

Registration materials for any of the CLEP tests are available at no charge from the 
College-Level Examination Program, Princeton, New Jersey 08541, or from 
Hofstaedter at Delaware Valley College.

DelVal Wrestling Team is Dominant 

At the Binghamton (N.Y.) Wrestling Tournament Saturday, November 11, 1989 
Delaware Valley came away with the team title over the other teams. D. V.C. had 134 
points to the second place team Lycoming with 84 V2. 

Each school was permitted to enter two (2) wrestlers in each weight class and as a 
result the Aggie's dominated the finals with seven (7) finalist and came away with 
seven (7) champions out of a possible ten ( 10). As a matter of fact D. V.C. has the first 
and second place finishes in four of the weight classes. Dave Perina was first at 1 18, 
Chuck McGrath was first at 126 and D.V.C.'s Mike Elder was second. Bob Modryn- 
chuk was first at 134, D.V.C. DeMetri Kangas was second. Chris Hoover was 
champion at 142. Tony Rizzolino was third at 150, Mark Ambrose, defending 
N.C.A.A. champions was first at 158 while D.V.C. Rich Defulvio was runner-up. 
Frank Pershpalaj was first at 167 and Mickey Marshall was third. At 190, Ron Ferrezzi 
was third at heavyweight. Dan Wehr was champion and D.V.C.'s Ron Sowers was 
second. Out of twenty-one (21) wrestlers from D.V.C. who went, fifteen (15) of them 
placed in the top 3. 

DelVal coach Bob Marshall said the tournament was "a real workout and a good 
tournament for the guys to be in" as a preparation for the season. 

The Aggie's next action will be the York Tournament Saturday, December 2nd.

Bucks County 
Honey Show 

The Annual Bucks County Honey 
Show was recently held on the Delaware 
Valley Campus. It was judged by the 
College's beekeeping specialist Dr. 
Berthold, and he was assisted by 
members of the College's beekeeping 
club, which also provided the prizes. 

The entries were judged based on 
their floral source, their clarity, their 
moisture content, their freedom from 
crystals, their flavor, and their packaging. 
Local winners were Harold Steeley of 
Ottsville, PA in the dark honey and 
beeswax categories. Mr. Steeley also 
won the sweepsteak prize for scoring the 
most points. Al Effrig who has his apiary 
in Hilltown and lives in Philadelphia won 
the light honey category. 

During the meeting held in conjunction 
with the honey show, Nick Jiorgainni a 
DVC Biology major discussed his summer 
work with the N.J. Department of 
Agriculture, which involved diagnosis for 
mite pests of honey bees and for the 
Africanized honey bee. Dan French 
another DVC Biology major discussed

Beeswax Candle making 
Workshop Scheduled 

The Delaware Valley College Apiary 
Society in conjunction with the College 
will be sponsoring an evening workshop 
dealing with the making of Beeswax 
Candles. The workshop will be held on 
Tuesday, December 12, 1989 starting at 
7:00 P.M. in the All Purpose Room of the 
Student Center located on the Delaware 
Valley Campus fronting on Route 202 
south of Doylestown, PA. The workshop 
is open to anyone interested in par- 
ticipating and there will be a rK)niinal 
charge for materials used. The workshop 
is designed so that those partk: ipating 
will make beeswax candle(s) to take 
home with them. 

Beeswax is considered to be the most 
ideal wax for making candles, since 
beeswax candles burn appreciably longer 
than those made from paraffin, plus 
burning beeswax produces a distinct 
fragrance. Although beeswax will be used 
exclusively in the workshop, the tech- 
niques demonstrated can also be used to 
make paraffin candles. Those attending 
the workshop will have the option of 
making a variety of different types of 
beeswax candles. 

The workshop will be under the 
direction of Dr. Bob Berthold the 
College's beekeeping expert and an 
authority on beeswax and candle making. 
He will be assisted by the members of the 
Delaware Valley College Student Bee- 
keeping Club. Why not join us and spend 
an enjoyable evening making candles for 
the Christmas Season. Further infor- 
mation can be obtained by calling the 
College at 345-1500. 

with the development of a rapid, accurate, 
and easy to use field method for detecting 
honey bee diseases. 

The county association also elected 
Miss Christina Holeman as their 1989 
honey queen. Miss Holeman is a current 
freshman majoring in Ornamental Horti- 
culture and an active member of the 
college's Apiary Society. Christine is a 
native of Wiggins, Colorado, and she is 
also a member of the Delaware Valley 
College Women's Cross Country Team.

Dear Editors 

I am concerned about an issue that 
none of the student body here at DelVal 
can escape. This issue affects us all in 
one way or another and is currently a 
major topic of discussion among many of 
the student leaders here. The subject of 
which I am referring is APATHY. The 
lack of emotion and feeling of concern 
seem to be the trend here on campus. In 
my four years here, apathy is at an all- 
time high and not a pleasant subject to 
discuss. I realize that things occur in 
cycles and that focus is often shifted to 
other areas, but a college campus should 
not be full of such lethargic young adults 
as we seem to have here at times. I am 
not claiming to be "Joe Activities", but I 

Dear Editors. 

have done my share over the years. It 
certainly would be encouraging to see a 
full house at a dance more often or a 
quorum at a club meeting. I think I 
express the opinion of many a student 
leader here on campus, who would like 
to see a change. If each person on this 
campus would get ACTIVELY involved 
in ONE extracurricular club or organiza 
tion (and I'm discluding intramural athlet 
ics, though not discrediting those already 
active in such endeavors), on our cam- 
pus, I think we Aggies would eliminate 
much of the negativity and finger point- 
ing that go on around here. 

So, what do you say, folks? Let's do it 
up, and do it up right next semester! 

Sincerely) concerned, 
Brad A. Bittner

USA TODAY, Oct. 16, 1989 

A major new study is under way to 
determine whether a woman who smokes 
marijuana during pregnancy increases 
her child's risk of developing a rare form 
of leukemia. 

The National Cancer Institute is fund 
ing the study, based on a preliminary 
survey suggesting marijuana use raises 
the risk of noni\;mphoblastic leukemia 
1 1 times. This form accounts for 15 per 
cent of childhood leukemias; it's most 
common in adults exposed to chemicals 
or radiation. 

"We found the association only in a 
small number of cases, but it was so strik- 
ing that we couldn't totally ignore it," 
says epidemiologist Leslie L. Robison of 
the University of Minnesota in Minnea 
polis. "However, the association coukl 
have appeared by chance alone." 

In the new study, Robison and 
researchers with the California-hased 
Children's Cancer Study Group will 
examine 800 leukemia cases and to what 
extent each child's mother used mari- 
juana and was exposed to other potential 
risk factors such as pesticides. 

Robison says the possible link between 
marijuana and leukemia was uncovered 
while looking for risks due to pesticide 
exposure. Last month, he reported a 
"consistent association" with leukemia 
and pesticide exposure — during preg- 
nancy and directly to children. 

A significant proportion of marijuana 
used in the USA is sprayed with pesti- 
cides, but the preliminary survey singled 
out marijuana as an independent risk 
factor, says Robison. 




Since Liberal Arts has assumed 
administration of the Cultural Enrich- 
ment segment of the Core Curriculum, I 
plan to have a Review Committee con- 
sisting of faculty and students. If you are 
a freshman or sophomore and wish to 
serve on this committee to gather, review, 
and suggest events, please send me a 
note to that effect.

Speech Showdown: Besides the skimpy 
cheese sandwiches Just what is wrong 
with DVC? 

On Wednesday, November 15 at 11:20 in the first ever Speech Showdown! The 
event was a collaborative effort of the speech classes taught by Mrs. Joanne Roberts, 
Mrs. Linda Kosh, and Dr. Roberta Diamond. Fourteen students participated in an 
impromptu debate format that allowed little to no preparation time and forced the 
speaker to speak on a side which he or she might disagree with. The two topics drawn 
by lot were: 1) "What's right and wrong with DVC?" and 2) The pros and cons of 
outlawing capital punishment. 

About fifty students watched and cheered the debate as well as a Shakespearian 
reading an impromptu joke by David Bartholmew. The participants were all judged 
the top speakers in their classes. They were: 

Topic A; What'a wrong and right Topic B; Capital punishment 
with DVC? should be abolished 

1. Carol Trember 8. DougLinde 

2. Chris Tice 9. 

3. Jaymes Finafronk 10. 

4. SamBork 11. 

5. James Wabals 12. 

6. Stephanie Mason 13. 

7. Clayton Andrews 14. 
The judges were the three speech teachers, plus Dr. Richard Ziemer and librarian 

Karen Byrne. They had only three minutes or less to judge each speaker, but awarded 
the first prize ($20) to David Young for his affirmative support of "an eye for an eye" 
capital punishment. Second prize ($15) went to James Wabals and third prize ($10) 
went to Amin Ahmadzadeh. All participatents received scrolls attesting to their 
outstanding speech efforts. Cider, pretzels, and spiced cookies were served to the 
audience. It left many wishing we really had a debate team or club at DelVal. So, 
Speak Up!

Dear Editors 


Once upon a time there was a place 
called Happy Valley. And everyone was 
HAPPY. And if you were not happy for 
any particular reason you had the ability 
and right to call the Evil King's special 
Hotline! HV-1 (Happy Valley • 1). Well, 
one day a lowly peasant was displeased 
with the Evil King's STORM TROOPERS. 
When this lowly peasant tried to call 
Happy Valley - 1, the Storm Trooper had 
no idea what the peasant was talking 
about! So, the peasant explained it to 
him. The Storm Trooper, because of his 
relatively low volume of grey matter, still 
didn't understand. Finally, the peasant 
explained exactly what to do, and the 
Storm Trooper, with great difficulty, did 

The peasant was overjoyed that he 
was going to get his chance to actually 
leave a message for the Evil King! But 
when Happy Valley — 1 answered, to his 
surprise, it immediately hung-up on him 
before a single word had left his lips. All 
the peasant could say was, "WHY DID 
THIS HAPPEN? Does the Evil King not 
care about us?" Saddened by this, the 
peasant gave up hope for any change in 
Happy Valley. Sincerely,

A new Psychology minor is now 
available to all students matriculated in a 
four-year degree program at Delaware 
Valley College. The minor requires 
completion of five three-credit courses in 
Psychology. These courses are: Intro- 
duction to Psychology; Abnormal 
Psychology; Educational Psychology; 
Social Psychology; and Biometrics which 
has to do with statistical predictions as 
they involve and impact people. 

Dr Roberta Dimond, Professor of 
Liberal Arts, explains that "because 
Psychology is the study of human 
behavior, it impacts every career ■ ■ from 
parent and housewife to the highly trained 
professional. Every life and every career 
needs to effectively understand the 
dynamics .of human behavior. With 
Psychology in your academic back- 
ground, you can better identify your own 
motivations and perhaps raise your self- 
esteem. You certainly will be a better 
worker, boss, businessman, and com- 
municator because you will learn what 
makes you and the other people in the 
world "tick." All of us need to use the 
knowledge of human emotion and 
motivation on a day-to-day basis. We are 
excited about this minor which is jointly 
taught by Math and Psychology staff." 

"Delaware Valley College students will 
profit because of the opportunities for 
success it will provide in their careers 
and because it might awaken an interest 
in psychology which could lead to 
graduate studies," Dr. Dimond continues. 

The Psychology minor is offered both 
during the day, as well as in the evening 
in the Continuing Education curriculum. 
For more information about this program, 
please call Dr. Richard Ziemer at DVC,

determined that a student had the 
birds here for a very brief period as the 
birds were part of the student's class 

.. Sorry, about the brief period you all 
were without heat in Cooke last week, 
but the fuel tank unexpectedly ran 
dry. We'll do our best to not let that 
happen again. 

.. Yes, we all wish that housing for 
married student personnel was avail- 
able on campus. This is a matter 
which is getting a close review at this 

.. Thanks for your interest in Christmas 
music from Lasker Hall. The music 
was started on December 5th.

thank Security for what they did for 
my friends on Saturday morning when 
their car broke down. You did an 
excellent job getting jumper cables 
and the needed help. Thank you 

.. The complaint about the alarm going

The College is presently hosting a 
group of visitors from the People's 
Republic of China. As members of an 
institute operated by the Ministry of 
Commerce they are official represent- 
atives of the Chinese government. In 
that capacity they represent the govern- 
ment responsible for the recent massacre 
of innocent students whose only crime 
was a nonviolent plea for basic human 
rights. Those lucky enough to survive 
the guns and tanks, but unlucky enough 
to have been taken into custody are now 
languishing in prison or indoctrination 

The Chinese government can hose 
the blood from the pavement of 

Tiananmen Square, but they can't wash 
the graphic images from our minds. 
Anyone who feels that we can resume 
business as usual is guilty of complicity. 
The students' deaths will truly be in vain 
if we allow ourselves to forget their 
ultimate sacrifice. 

I would like to propose that those 
members of the campus community who 
feel as I do wear a black arm band 
through next week in memory of the 
murdered Chinese students. 

Arm bands will be available beginning 
this coming Monday at my office, Mandell

From the Security 


Karl L. Filachek 

Recently there has been much dis- 
cussion about a proposed change in the 
visitation policy of DelVal. Recent 
legislative requirements (Pa. Act 88.73) 
has served notice on all colleges and 
universities within Pennsylvania to 
critically evaluate their security pro- 
cedures. Visitation policies are part of 
this evaluation. 

In the near future, information will be 
distributed advising students of this 
change in procedure. All who parti- 
cipated in this revision were extremely 
concerned that there was no infringement 
on student's rights and freedoms. 
Members of Student Life, R.A.'s, C.C.'s 
and Security have consulted together 
over the last two months to come up with 
a workable procedure. 

The new procedure requires all visitors 
to adequately and completely identity 
themselves. It also requires DelVal 
students to vouch for their visitors and 
be responsible for their visitor's actions. 
This does not seem to be too much of a 
requirement when the result will b« a 
higher level of safety for our ciWTipus 
community. Unfortunately, any increae 
in security results in a decrease in 
convenience, but hopefully this incon- 
venience will be kept to a minimum. The 
new policy has been tried off and on for 
the last month and certainly seems to be 
workable. If we all keep security in mind 
and actively participate, we can make 
DelVal safer.

Dear Editors. 

Your offices have been instrumental 
in many attempts to improve academic 
life here at Delaware Valley College. 
Two of the changes that come to mind 
arc the professor evaluation forms and 
the much needed and up to date 
scheduling system. The latter change 
was long in coining and seems to be 
quite successful. 

Lately 1 have spoken to several 
students at other colleges and univer- 
sities about how they do certain things 
at their respective institutions. Thinking 
about these conversations, I have 
another change I would like to see 
implemented here as well. This change, 
I am sure, will be supported by most 
students and faculty. This change could 
be aptly named "DEAD WEEK." What 
is it. you may ask? Well, "DEAD WEEK" 
would prohibit professors from giving 
quizzes and tests the week before final 
examinations and require them only to 
instruct lectures and laboratories as 
normal. It would elimninate much of the 
test anxiety heading into finals week

and would most likely improve the 
performance on such examinations. 

Some professors claim that a test or 
quiz the week before final exams will 
lessen the amount of studying one has 
to do for the final exam, but it also puts 
an added burden on the student because 
it is harder to focus on those tests due 
to pressure of term papers, upcoming 
holidays or vacations, other tests or 
quizzes and the final examinations 

Please think about my idea and let me 
know how you feel concerning such. 
Thank you.

Thank you for your memorandum of 
November 29, 1989. I feel you should 
know my position. 

First, our visitors are not represent- 
atives of the government of The Peoples 
Republic of China anymore than you 
would be a representative of President 
Bush if, in expanding the international 
interests of this College, you visited 
France or Germany to speak about 
your field. They are representatives of 
their college and they are seeking a 
relationship with a sister institution to 
enhance High Science Agriculture, 
Sciences and to impact positvely, but 
indirectly, in such areas as the world 
food supply, hunger and to work 
positively with people of other nations 
in behalf of world peace. In the first 
seven days of their visit, there has been 
absolutely no discussion of political or 
ideology matters. To the best of our 
knowledge they are friendly, serious, 
caring people who are concerned with 
their college and their college students. 

On coming to Delaware Valley College 
two and half years ago, I found an 
institution which was described as an 
"essential secret" which hardly reached 
beyond the borders of Doylestown. In 
fact, some say it did not even reach into 
Doylestown. It was and is, however a 
fine institution with a fine faculty, strong 
courses and a great deal to offer; not 
only to our area of the world, but to the 
whole world. A natural and immediately 
noticeable opportunity then was to 

branch out into the third world. We 
picked the third world because n>any 
other colleges are already working with 
the developed western world and, 
therefore, the third world in combination 
with our particular expertise in High 
Science Agriculture offered a major 
opportunity both for this College, its 
faculty and students, and to do good 
work in the world toward world peace. 
This idea was then taken up by the 
entire agricultural faculty who worked 
during the Christmas period of 1987 to 
develop the Third World Project. 
The project resulted in a very favorable 
relationship in Haiti with a sister in- 
stitution, the American University of Le 
Cayes, in which we have had the 
involvement of one U.S. Congressman 
and the possibility of receiving federal 
aid through A.I.D., a positive relationship 
in Poland, a beginning relationship in 
Venezuela and the current relationship 
with mainland China. 

With the explosion of electronics and 
communications throughout the world 
people are talking to people, and as 
people talk armies and military forces 
are being curtailed. The great events 
going on in eastern Europe are an 
outcome of increased communications 
which have brought knowledge of the 
standard of life in the western world 
behind the Iron Curtain. This, in turn, 
has resulted in the Curtain collapsing. 
Would you have objected to a visit to 

Continued on page 3 


Continued from page 2 
the College by a group of professors 
from a University in east Germany? 
That same group may have been in on 
the great activities which are occurring 
in eastern Europe right now very 
positive activities enhancing the spirit of 

And isn't it interesting that our visitors 
were welcomed for a special tour of the 
White House, several agencies of the 
Federal Government and received a 
special explanation in Manderin Chinese 
when visiting the Liberty Bell and 
Independence Hall. Also Congressman 
Kostmayer asked to and did meet them. 

When I was a young military officer 
my politics were considerably right of 
center, I spoke the ultra patriotic line. 
(When I was a child I spake as a 
child...)*. Now I realize that activities 
such as this visit have a very positive 
effect on the visitors. You cannot visit 
and see America at Christmastime 
without forming very strong impressions 

about the vitality and success of our 
society. In short while we have many 
problems (such as homeless people), a 
great deal is going right here and it is 
probably going better here than almost 
any other nation in the world. 

Beyond that, I am concerned that 
one of our College leaders would take a 
last minute action of this type when it 
has been well known that, with some of 
the same considerations that you 
express, we have carefully considered 
this visit and on balance decided that it 
is appropriate, positive and may lead 
not only to good things for our faculty 
and students, but in the long run to very 
great events such as we are seeing in 
eastern Europe today. Quite frankly, I 
would like to be part of these great 

Your absolute right to express your 
opinion as a citizen of this greal country 
is deeply and positively respected. 
Reasonable men of goodwill can agree 
to disagree.

The Mechanical Honey Bee 

On Thursday evening, March 29, 
1990 beginning at 8:00 p.m. in the Music 
Room on the second floor of the Student 
Center of Delaware Valley College in 
Doylestown, PA, Dr. William Towne 
will be presenting a talk dealing with the 
Mechanical Honey Bee. The meeting is 
being sponsored by the College, the 
College's Beekeeping Club, and the 
Bucks and Montgomery County Bee- 
keeping Associations. 

Dr. William Towne is an Assistant 
Professor of Biology, Kutztown 

University, Kutztown, PA. His talk will 
deal with the mechanical honey bee. 
Dr. Towne recently collaborated with 
some European honey bee researchers 
to design and construct a computer- 
operated mechanical honey bee. With 
their mechanical bee, the researchers 
have been able to emulate normal honey 
bee dances within the hive. Their 
research was recently covered in a 
feature article in the National Geo- 
graphic. It was also the cover story in

PHEAA State Work- 
Studv Program 

Are you looking forward to another 
summer of flipping burgers and mowing 
lawns? Well, Pennsylvania Higher Edu- 
cation Assistance Agency (PHEAA), 
the state Agency that administers the / 
state grant and student loan programs 
has a better idea. It's the State Work 
Study Program (SWSP). 

SWSP allows the Commmonwcalth's 
students to get career-related exper- 
ience and cash to help pay for school 
next fall. 

Suppported by funds appropriated 
each year by the Pennsylvania General 
Assembly, SWSP has a job bank of 
employers who are willing to hire stu 
dents in their field of study. 

Last year, about 1,000 students took 
advantage of SWSP. They chose from a 
job bank of 3,000 SWSP jobs and 
earned more than $1.7 million. 

Angela Parenti, a graduate of Gan- 
non University, was a SWSP student 
employee of Microbac Laboratories, 
Inc. and is now employed with them 
full-time as a chemist. "SWSP was a 
really good learning experience because 
it tied what I was learning in the class- 
room to real situations," states Parenti. 
"The money I earned helf)ed a lot with 
my school expenses. Without the SWSP 
job, I probably would have had to bor- 
row more." 

Rodney Finalle, a first year medical 
student at the University of Pennsylva- 
nia, has this to say about his work expe- 
rience as a SWSP student employee 
with DuBois Regional Medical Center, 
"My SWSP job was a great experience 
because it gave me a fascinating look 
into my field of study." 

Application for the State Work-Study 
Program is easy and both undergrad- 
uate and graduate students are en- 
couraged to apply. 

For eligibility requirements, applica- 
tions and more information about 
SWSP, contact the Financial Aid Officer 
at your school or call the PHEAA State 
Work Study staff at (717) 257-2550. 

Honey Bee 

Continued from page 1 

Science News, and it was documented 
in Time Magazine. 

Much of the early research on honey 
bee behavior was done by the late Dr. 
Karl von Frisch who won the Nobel 
Prize in 1974 for his work. What von 
Frisch found was that the honey bee 
was able to communicate the location 
of food sources to hive mates by doing 
highly sophisticated dances. In the 
1970s, von Frisch's work came under 
attack by those who claimed that food 
source locations were communicated 
solely by odors. The mechanical bee 
research now seems to lend support to 
von Frischs' original work. Additional 
information can be obtained by calling 
the college at (215) 345 1500.

. . Your message concerning the 
"revised" Visitation Policy is noted. 
Often, the best laid plans surface 
with some minor shortfalls. Now that 
we have received additional con 
structive revisions and suggestions 
(thanks faculty and some concerned 
students) we'll get a policy which will 
not only be workable and easy to 
execute, but one which will enhance 
campus security and safety. 

. . Sorry, for only two working shower 
heads in Goldman 2nd on the day 
which you called. The problem was 
rapidly repaired. O.K.? 

. . A Long student line for dinner on 
Sunday is not in our program! We 
will shoot for two service lines and 
faster food service on Sunday even- 
ings. Should we not comply to your 
satisfaction, please call DVC-1 again. 

. . The many calls concerning unhappi- 
ness about parking (and tickets) at 
the entrance of your dorms are noted 
and taken with concern. Our jDtjlicy 
is: When the semester/ s commence 
or end you can take your vehicle to 
the dorm (blinker lights on) and load/- 
unload with zero problem of getting a 
ticket. Other times? Please under- 
stand we have safety, fire and turfing 
problems to consider as well (O.K.) 
thus should you need to load or 
unload your vehicle merely stop in to 
Security and share your plans in 
advance. I/we guarantee you sup- 
port and full cooperation. 

. . A bad smell on campus? A quick 
check indicated a bit of manure was 
necessarily spread on some DVC 
(close by) agricultural land. Your 
understanding is appreciated in 

. . The employee who drove around the 
barricade says it will not happen 
again. Thanks for the alert! 

. . Nothing is done when a person calls 
DVC- 1 . Sorry, but you are not tuned 
into the correct frequency. Call again, 

. . A fuel oil spill which took place. Yes, 
the spill was really minor, but (Sue) 
thanks for the call. We followed it up 

. . The call addressing pizza at lunch 
was "fuzzy'?? Sorry, but what is the 
complaint? A return call would be 
deeply appreciated. 

. . A Housekeeping employee asleep in 
your dorm? This is an unsatisfactory 
situation — we thank you for the 
DVC-1 call and corrective action 
has been taken.

Air Force Band Appears at DelVal 

By Fay Lobaugh 

The United States Air Force Band of 
the East presented a free concert, Friday 
evening, February 2, in the Student 
Center at Delaware Valley College. 

The audience was entertained with 
selections from John Philip Sousa, 
Gordon Jacob, Paul Creston, and 
Gustav Hoist. In addition to the previous 
selections, the audience was treated to 
soloist Lee Williamson-Smith on the 
euphonium and vocalist Timothy Black. 
The vocal performance featured num- 
bers such as "I've Got You Under My 
Skin," "Wind Beneath My Wings," and 
"God Blass the USA." 

The Ambassador's Stage Band 
brought the crowd to life with selections 
such as Glenn Miller's, "In the Mood." 
The most amusing part of the evening 
occurred when the audience was asked 

to identify the theme songs of old 
television shows as the band performed 
the medley "A Rhapsody of Reruns." 
The concert ended with a rousing 
patriotic finale. 

The Air Force Band of the East from 
McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey 
is made up of 38 members from across 
the United States. Under Comman- 
der/Conductor Robert A. Pouliot, the 
band performs and tours throughout 
New Jersey, New York, Delaware, 
Pennsylvania, Canada, and the Azores. 

The band appeared through the

Logeais, Commander, 21st Air Force 
Military Airlift Command, McGuire Air 
Force Base, NJ, and the Delaware

Susquehanna University will once 
again be offering students the oppor- 
tunity to gain an international flavor to 
their education this summer with its 
1990 Susquehanna at Oxford program. 

The Oxford Summer Session, July 2 
through August 4, composes the 
majority of the program and gives 
students a chance to take credit courses 
taught by British professors while living 
at Oxford's Corpus Christi College. 

Students interested in business and 
economics courses normally enroll in 
courses on British management and 
economic history. Students interested 
in liberal arts, meanwhile, enroll in two 
courses ranging from British literature, 
to politics, to history and culture. 

Participants are encouraged to join 
the summer-session group early for a 
three-week Pre-Oxford excursion, June 
13 through July 1, throughout England 
with extended stops planned in Lon- 
don, Stratford, Edinburgh, and York. 

They may continue their European 
travel following completion of their 
Oxford course work with a Post-Oxford 
excursion, this 6day tour, August 5 
through 11, will involve a detailed 
excursion to Paris, France under the 
guidance of the Susquehanna faculty 

An alternate six-day excursion, 
August 7 through 13, to Paris is also 

Another Susquehanna at Oxford 
program is a course on British Theatre 
in London, May 28 through June 26. 
Students will attend 16 plays, take 
backstage tours of current productions 
and attend seminars on the history of 
British theatre and its current issues. 

Costs for the Susquehanna at Oxford 
programs are $1,275 for the British 
Theatre course; $3,250 for the Oxford 
Summer Session; $950 for the Pre

At mid-season, DelVal's Men's bas- 
ketball team, 5-10, has suffered eight 
personnel losses but is still capable of 
beating any team in the Middle Atlantic 

Head coach. Bill Werkiser, said 
"despite the player losses, the team has 
done well and can't be taken lightly by 
other teams in the MAC." This is evi- 
dent by the recent wins over Muhlen- 
berg, the very confident Susquehanna, 
and an overtime loss to a first place 
Allentown team. 

Werkiser also said that "this year's 
team has the best chemistry and 

camaraderie he has seen in a team." 
This is one reason why the team remains 
competitive in the MAC. Another is the 
team's ever-hustling defense which is 
led by captain, Marc Reason. The 
offense is led by high-flying Charles 
Deshield, 15.6 points per game, and 3 
point bomber Mike Knouse, 14.8 ppg. 
The remainder of the scoring is evenly 
spread out among the rest of the team. 

The Aggies have a tough schedule for 
the remainder of the season but if they 
continue to play hard as a team they will 
definitely add to their number of wins. 

New Majors at DelVal 

By: Robert Livingston 

Delaware Valley College may soon 
have several new majors including 
mathematics, secondary education and 
criminal justice administration, ac- 
cording to Dr. John Mertz, Vice 

The proposed majors are at various 
levels of approval and development, the 
mathematics major is awaiting endor 
sement by the Department of Educa- 
tion. The education major is awaiting 
review by the school's curriculum 

committee, as is the program in crim 
inal justice administration. 

Mertz states that there are several 
steps of approval for new educational 
programs. First, a faculty member has 
to back and support a program. Tne 
second step is a study by the faculty 
committee. Then the program needs to 
be reviewed by Dr. Mertz and Dr. Craig 
Hill. The final step is a presentation to 
the Education Committee of the Board 
of Trustees.

The right choice. 


by Shelle]/ Brown 

In the fall of last year, Delaware Val- 
ley College introduced an English Major 
to its expanding Liberal Arts curriculum. 

Adding the English Major opens up 
new horizons for the students and for 
the school, says Dr. Heath. The college 
is hoping this major will get the atten- 
tion of prospective students who may 
be interested in DelVal. 

Dr. Alice Heath, head of the new Eng- 
lish Department is very excited about 
the program. She explains that right 
now there is not an overwhelming 
amount of people in this major, but that 
is because it is new. However, it is a 
"foot in the door." Dr. Heath says that 
majoring in English gives students a 
yast amount of career opportunities 
such as; journalism, radio/tv, teaching, 
and law. "This course helps people to 
get a better understanding of our lan- 
guage and helps to deal with people in 
certain situations. It also provides the 
students with a 24-week work program 
and if they desire, the ability to continue 
on to graduate school," she explaitied. 

According to Dr. Heath, "this is a 
positive step for Delaware Valley Col- 
lege, because it is not just an agricultu- 
ral school anymore. It is an up and com- 
ing school that will offer many different 
studies. This English Major will eventu- 
ally be a very strong program."

Several local businesses and non- 
profit organisations are presently offer- 
ing a series of spring semester Earth 
Week 90 internships for interested stu 
dents. The specific requirements will 
vary according to the internship spon- 
sor, but all will be monitored under the 
auspices of the Delaware Valley Earth 
Week 90 Coalition and afford partici- 
pating interns a unique series of bene- 
fits stemming from their involvement. 

The Delaware Valley Earth Week 
coalition was formed to organize activi- 
ties that will celebrate the 20th anniver- 
sary of Earth Day. The first Earth Day 
began a worldwide awareness of envi- 
ronmental issues and helped bring about 
organizations and legislation that have 
addressed some of today's mofit press- 
ing problems: global warming, recycling, 
acid rain, toxic waste, pollution, and 
vanishing open spaces. Organizations 
that have agreed to set up internships 
for the spring semester include the 
Clean Air Council, Sierra Club, 
Academy of Natural Sciences, Pennsyl- 
vania Environmental Council and the 
Brandywine Valley Association. In 
addition to the specific projects assigned 
by each sponsor, the Delaware Valley 
Coalition requires that all Earth Week 
interns also participate in a minimum of 
three group meetings and submit a writ- 
ten report of their internship. The indi- 
vidual reports will then be bound and 
distributed to all Earth Week Internship 

For more information on how to 
apply for these unusual and valuable 
internship opportunities, please contact

men and women have worked to build 
upon and strengthen this great legacy. 

"Our libraries represent not only our

goal of this important conference is to 
develop creative new ways to ensure

libraries relfects the needs and desires 
of our communities," Mrs. Casey said.

The Student Activities Committee at 
Delaware Valley College will sponsor 
"The Great Abortion debate" on 
Thursday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the 
AllPurpose Room of the Student 

The debate will feature Bill Baird, 
who has been called the "father of the 
abortion movement" and John Short, a 
pro-life advcXiate. A question and answer 
session with the audience will follow the 
formal debate. 

Admission to the debate is $5. Tickets 
may be purchased in advance through 
the Dean of Students Office. 

Representing the pro-choice per- 
spective will be Baird, named the "father 
of the abortion movement" by the 
Associated press. Since 1963, Baird has 
challenged restrictive birth control and 
abortion laws around the nation. 

His efforts have awarded him with 
Oictories in three landmark Supreme 
Court cases, including Baird v. Eisen- 
stadt which legalized birth control 
nationally for single people in 1972. 

Baird's style and controversial nature 
have led him to be compared with Dr. 
Martin Luther King, Jr., Ghandi and 
Thoreau by some and the Devil by oth- 
ers. Baird is founder and director of 
three non-profit birth control and abor- 
tion information centers and has dedi- 
cated his life to the ongoing struggle for 
reproductive freedom. 

Representing the anti-abortion view 
will be Short, founder of the pro-life 
birth defects research foundation called 
The Michael Fund. Short first came to 
public attention in 1972 (before Roe v. 
Wade) when he was dismissed as the 
Accounting Executive of the Nassau 
County Social Services Department 
after refusing on moral grounds to pro- 
see ABORTION DEBATE on page 2

Advisors Joe Ferry, 

Mr. Edward O'Brien, 
Dr. Richard Ziemer 

It's Friday night, classes are over, 
you're with your friends and need 
something to do. You don't want to 
watch television, and you don't have 
enough money to go out . Maybe there's 
something fun to do on campus? Well, 
don't hold your breath! 

This is a typical senario of a weekend 
at DelVal; it's sad but true. There is not 
much for students here to do. There 
may be a dance or a sporting event, 
great! But what about those who don't 
like to dance , or those who do not enjoy 
sporting events? So in turn, when every- 
one gets tired of just sitting there waist- 
ing the weekend away, they decide 
to create their own fun. Off goes "the 
tube" and on goes the stereo. Maybe 
they get a little loud but considering the 
fact that a lot of the students go home, 
who are we disturbing? Not security. 
They are too busy checking every car 
that pulls in for student l.D. cards! But 
unfortunately security does end up tell- 
ing everyone politely or not so politely 
to get back in their rooms and keep it 
down. So bordem sets in (again) and 
also frustration. 

What is the problem? When the 
school cannot provide activities for us 
to do, why can't the students have their 
own fun? Not everyone gets drunk and 

Something should really be done. 
The students, rather the parents of the 
students, pay a pretty penny to attend 
this school. The students do their jobs 
during the week, and things are very 
calm and quiet, so when the weekend 
rolls around why can't we get a little 
wild? The school feels that the students 
won't participate in those few activities 
the school offers. This may be true, but 
maybe if DelVal would find out just 
exactly what activities the students are 
interested in, there would be more par- 
ticipation. An easy way to find out what 
the students would like to do is just 
simply pass out questionnaires or sur- 
veys. Get it from the horses mouth! 

This is a problem that has gone on 
too long and should be dealt with. Del- 
Val is the students home away from 
home. It is also college, not a prison

DelVal Baseball Begins 

By Bob Altieri 

On Monday, January 29th the DclVal 
baseball team started its winter wor- 
kouts in the gym. Coach Frank Wolf- 
gang got his players together at a meet- 
ing and explained what he wanted from 
his team. Wolfgang wants his players to 
work hard and give it their best. "The 
first couple of weeks of practice will be 
basically conditioning and throwing. You 
can't do much in the cold." Wolfgang 

Wolfgang has his players out a month 
earlier this year because he feels that 
this can be the year for the Aggies. 
Although the Aggies had a tough sea- 
son a year ago, Wolfgang says he likes 
what he sees. The only key factor that 
could affect the baseball team is the loss 
of three seniors. "This team is real 
young we only have three seniors this 
year. The majority of the team are jun- 
iors and sophomores." Wolfgang said. 
Wolfgang gave the players names whom 
he thinks will help contribute to the 
Aggies this year. Sean Kelly, "a four 
year letterman and starter at third base," 
sophomore Bob Altieri, "the teams 

MVP, and second team all league 
shortstop," Dan Law "A three year 
starter at first base," John Maresca, at 
second base, Bill Turner, outfielder, 
Bullet Lopes infielder, and sophomores 
Brian Schlegal, outfielder, and pitcher, 
Eric Stammbaugh. 

"These men have worked hard for 
two long years now, and we expect 
some big things to happen this year." 
Wolfgang said. The team wants to win 
the MAC Conference Championship. 
The Aggies haven't won the champion 
ship in five years, but look to return to 
the top this coming season. "If eve- 
ryone plays up to their ability and the 
freshman and transfers come in and do 
the job, the Aggies will reign at the top 
once more." Wolfgang smiles confi- 

The main key to baseball is pitching. 
Wolfgang is looking for a lot of help on 
the mound. He said, "to win the MAC's 
you need good pitching." That is the 
only question mark in the Aggies lineup 
this season. Wolfgang wants the fans to 
know that the DelVal baseball team is 
back and is out for vengeance.

Possible Renovations 
in the Near Future? 

By Stephanie Mason 

Wouldn't you like to have a building 
that contains a swimming pool, MAC 
machine, bar, clubs, and big stores to 
do your shopping? It seems as though, 
what we refer to as our student center, 
is not a real student center. Having all 
those luxuries would make the student 
center more pleasurable and useful. 

Many students complain about not 
having anything to do. Wouldn't it be 
nice to have some place to kick back, 
and relax and play a couple of games of 
pool after a long night of doing home- 
work? The student center is nice, but is 
it really a place for students to unwind? 

Most students choose schools that 
have great academics as well as great 
facilities. DelVal has great academics, 
but are the facilities adequate? Many 
students who were interviewed stated 
that, "we need more added onto the 
student center." There is definitely major 
improvement needed in the student 
center. For the amount of money it 
took to build the center, there should 
be more facilities there for the stucfents. 
Maybe DelVal should consider renovat- 
ing its student center in the future to 
accomodate the needs and wants of its

Rt. 202 • New Britain, PA 



By Erin E. Troutman 

Students at Delaware Valley College 
should feel much safer beginning this 
semester because of a new security pol- 
icy put into effect by school admin- 

The new policy which is in effect 
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights 
from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. is as follows: 

• All persons who wish to visit others 
on the campus must stop at the 
Security Office and identify them- 

• Upon presenting and leaving a driv 
er's license and registering in the vis-

DelVal Gets New Numbers 

By Jack Dawes 

Delaware Valley College started the 
spring semester with the introc^uction 
of a new student number system that 
will reduce confusion in admissions and 
inner-office correspondence. 

The new system will use a student's 
social security number in place of the 
old five digit number that was assigned 
to a student upon admission to the col 
lege. Using social security numbers 
instead of an assigned student number 
eliminates the chances of two students 
having the same number. An individu- 
al's social security number is unique. All 
offices will be using the new system to 
reduce confusion when information on 
a student is transferred between offices 
and other colleges. 

The administration has high expecta- 
tions about the new system. Although 
the initial crossover will be time con- 
suming and difficult, the end result will 
be beneficial and less difficult for those

Among the next cultural enrichment 
events coming up soon at Delaware 
Valley College is a slide show on the 
Iran-Iraq war which will be presented by 
one of the students and a native of Iran, 
Amin Ahmadzadeh. 

Ahmadzadeh felt it important to show 
his fellow friends, here at DelVal, what 
he saw in his country during the seven 
years of this terrible war, between 1981 
and 1988. According to him, it is difficult 
to get most of the American students 
from small colleges interested in the 
events happening thousands miles away 
in another country, "because they don't 
feel concerned about it." Ahmadzadeh 
strongly believes that this reaction is 
wrong because "even if the United- 
States is a big nation and a super- 
power, its citizens and especially its 
younger generation should sometimes 
be more open minded to the interna- 
tional world." 

Also, arcording to Ahmadzadeh, "In 
the long run, Americans will notice that 
such a war has some consequ* nces on 
the United States." 

Thousands of people have been killed 
in this war, including many friends of 
Ahmadzadeh himself; many cities and 
villages have been destroyed. The war 
had also some repercussions on the 
world economy, especially in the oil 
market. The second largest oil refinery 
in the world "Abadan" South-West of 
Iran, near the Persian Gulf, has been 
completely crossed off the map. 

Another point is that diplomatic rela- 
tions have been cut between Iran and 
several western countries. One of the 
results of the break in diplomatic rela- 
tionships is that Iranians now have a 
bad image in the world. 

Why did this war take place? It seems 
that the main reason is a problem of the 
frontier between the two countries. But 
also it is because of different tensions 
between the two governments. When 
asked, if this war really had to take 
place, Ahmadzadeh answered that 
"Diplomacy and communication could 
have avoided thousands of deaths." 

By luck and coincidence, Ahmad- 
zadeh did not directly take part in the 
war. When he was going to be sent to 
fight, he was finishing his military ser- 
vice, therefore, the chief-officer did not 
send him to the front line. 

Ahmadzadeh chose slides with 
"Kitaro" music from his own country to 
show and explain what war and life 
were like in Iran between September 
1981 and 1988. According to Ahmad- 
zadeh "slides are sometimes more 
powerful than a movie or a speech!"

"Flight of Fancy — An Invitation to 
Butterflies" is the title Delaware Valley 
College's exhibit at the Philadelphia 
Flower Show scheduled for the Civic 
Center March 11 through 18. 

"The 1990 entry is a particularly 
ambitious one," said David Bortz, a 
junior Ornamental Horticulture major 
from Lansdale, Pennsylvania. "Not only 
must thousands of plants and flowers, 
be forced but live butterflies must also 
be raised." 

Bortz, one of approximately 40 DelVal 
students invovled in working on the 
project, hopes the college's ideascape 
crammed with information about native 
butterfly species will demonstrate that a 
thoughtfully crafted garden need not be 
an insolating environment but one 
shared by many creatures such as 
beautiful and fragile butterflies. 

The butterflies will be part of a must 
unique garden party, according to Dr. 
John Martin, Chairman of the College's 
Oranmental Horticulture Department 
and supervisor of the Flower Show 
exhibit. They will delight in sampling the 
hundreds of plants on the menu 
specifically chosen to please butterflies 

of all ages, from larvae to adults, said 

"There will even be an open bar," 
said the professor, "a waterfilled rock in 
a shallow pool." 

Human guests will stroll the winding 
path through the exhibit, which will 
replicate a seculded garden designed to 
attract and nurture butterflies. The 
masses of colorful garden flowers will 
be matched only by the kaleidoscope of 
assorted butterflies. An actual butterfly 
life cycle will also be presented, giving 
some lucky observers a chance to see a 
butterfly as it emerges from its chrysalis. 

Over 500 square feet of greenhouse 
space at DelVal has been devoted to 
forcing plant material for the exhibit, 
according to Martin. "Special care must 
be taken in raising plants organically 
because butterflies are very sensititve 
to pesticides." said Martin. 

Delaware Valley College students 
have been displaying their talents at the 
Philaelphia Flower Show, the largest 
indoor show in .the world, since 1950. 
The theme of this year's show is "Purely 
for Pleasure — Gardens for the Senses." 

1989 Men's and Women's Cross Country 

On 9 February 1990, the DVC cross 
country teams concluded their seasons 
with their Annual Awards Banquet at 
the Widow Brown's Restaurant. In 
addition to athletes and coaches, many 
friends, staff, and alumni were in 

The DVC Men's 1989 Cross Country 
Team markedly improved their per- 
formance, but they still came up short 
of a winning season. Their overall record 
was 3 and 7, losing three of those meets 
by close scores. A number of promising 
freshmen were not able to complete the 

season for a variety of reasons, but 
Gustavo Rosen and Dave Klosinski 
contributed to the scoring, with Dave 
finishing number three scorer and win- 
ning his varsity letter. The number two 
and four scores were sophomores Ian 
Phelps and Frank Filor. Due to his 
"quantum" improvement over his fresh- 
man year, Ian was presented the Coachs' 
Trophy. Receiving their senior awards 
were co-captain Mark Brinski and Phil 
Sperry. Leading scorer for the Aggies

B]^ Dr. Robert Berthold, Jr. 

During one of our Annual Career 
Days, I had the opportunity of spending 
quite a bit of time with Dr. Roger 
Locandro, a Cook College (Agricultu- 
ral branch of Rutgers University) dean. 
During this time, we spoke with a 
number of our students. 1 was suprised 
to find how many of them had no idea as 
to how to finance a graduate education. 

In the case of Liberal Arts mwors 
-including those majoring in business 
and related fields - most students have 
to finance their own graduate edua- 
tions. It is true, however, that many 
business graduates receive financial 
assistance from employers to help 
finance their graduate educations. 

Financing a graduate education is 
frequently a different matter for those 
students majoring in Agriculture and in 
many of the sciences. Many graduate 
school departments offer research 
assistantships and/or teaching assist- 
antships to academically qualified stu- 
dents, with often a "B" average being 
enough to qualify. Presently, graduate 
assistance is averaging about $10,000.00 
per year plus tuition being waived. All 
assistance is often tax exempt. 

Many of the students who Dr. 
Locandro and I initially spoke with, said 
that they couldn't afford to go on to 
graduate school after the high costs 
involved with their undergraduate edu- 
cation. However, opportunities for 
financing graduate education do exist. 
If you are interested and you have the 
academic credential, you really should 
consider graduate school. 

If you think that you might be inter- 
ested in pursuing a graduate degree 
program, talk it over with your advisor, 
or if you like, make an appointment and 
come and discuss it with me. (Mandell 
203, Extension 2285 or 2284). 

Dear Editors 

An article in the February 22 edition 
caught my attention, and I would like to 
offer a few comments about it. The arti- 
cle, New Majors at DelVal, des 

cribes the possibility of "...several new 
majors including mathematics, secon- 
dary education, and criminal justice 
administration..." being added to the 
college, Delaware Valley College has 
always been known for its excellent 
programs in science and agriculture. 
For the present, let us concentrate on 
modernizing the science and agricul- 
ture labs, and making these programs 
even better. These changes can only 
strengthen DelVal's appel to prospec- 
tive science and agriculture majors. 

With the financial troubles the col- 
lege is in, and with the declining enrol- 
lment, it is a bad time to venture into

new areas. The enrollment will not 
increase just because a few liberal arts 
majors have been added. In this period 
of uncertainty of where the college is 
going, it is best if the college streng 
thens the areas of which it is known for. 
When DelVal's financial base is built up, 
and the proper resources are available, 
attention can and should be paid to 
creating an expanded liberal arts 
department that can be as well known 
as the college's- best programs. 

There will come a time, and hopefully 
it will be soon, that DelVal will again 
prosper and be able to expand into new 
areas. But until that time arrives, the 
college needs to continue to strengthen 
its position where it is known to be the

Delaware Valley College's Employ 
ment Program requirement for gradua- 
tion is a priceless experience for the 
student. The benefits are many, and it 
can be an integral part of a student's 

The Employment Program requires 
all degree candidates to spend 24 weeks 
during their undergraduate years in 
approved jobs in their major field. The 
program also involves student reports 
and a faculty visitation. 

Program benefits include priceless 
experience, job connections, knowledge 
related to their major, four credits, and 
a chance to earn a few bucks. The most 
important of these is the experience the 
undergraduate receives. In today's job 
market, employers are in search of a 
person with experience, and because 
DelVal graduates have experience, as a 
result of the Employment Program, 
most have jobs before they graduate, 
many students, after graduation, are 
given full-time positions with the com- 
pany they havfe previously worked. Also, 
students are often offered jobs even 
before graduation is near. 

The Employment Program require 
ment at DelVal is a strong compliment 
to a college education and is the reason 
why Delaware Valley College has the 
edge over its competition.

him the Most Valuable Trophy for the 
second year in a row. Art was also 
elected by the team to be Captain for 
the 1990 season. 

The women's team continued its win 
ing ways ending the season with a 7 and

and was second high scorer for the 
ladies. Junior Judy Peltz finished third 
in the scoring column, and for her per- 
formance and leadership she was voted 

the Most Valuable Harrier Trophy and 
also as Captain of the 1990 team. Seniors

By laurent P. Lance 

Students here at Delaware Valley 
College are aware that 24 weeks of 
employment haye to be completed in 
order to fulfill the requirements for a 
Bachelor Degree. 

Each major requires that students 
complete this program within their col- 
lege education at DelVal in a field 
related to their major. In other words, 
all Delaware Valley College students, 
without any restriction on sex, age, 
race, ethnic origin, creed, color, religion 
or citizenship, have to complete their 
employment program before graduation. 

However, a problem seems to appear 
when this requirement concerns for- 
eign students who are on a student visa 
status, which virtually means, "Not 
allowed to work!" 

This is especially true for the first 
year under a student visa status. Indeed, 
no employment is permitted, at all, out- 
side the campus during this first year. 
However work is permitted on campus, 
up to 20 hours a week, sometimes more 
if the college allows it, and as long as the 
job does not take away the opportuni- 
ties of American citizens! 

By chance, there are a few clauses in 
the student status which can permit a 
foreign student to work off-campus, 
after his first year of study. These 
exceptions include sudden important 
financial problems that would not allow 
the student to finish his degree in the 
time allowed by his visa, and a require- 
ment from the institution to complete a 

practical training period in a field 
related to the major prior to gradua 
tion...etc. Under these circumstances 
the student can be authorized to work 
off-campus for a limited time. To be 
granted the work authorization from 
the immigration and Naturalization 
service, the job has to be related to the 
student's major. Again, it should not 
exceed 20 hours per week. 

One would probably think this is a lot 
of administrative formalities indeed, but 
it can be accomplished! 

Chances are that since a foreign stu 
dent is not legally permitted to work 
off-campus during the first year of his 
student visa status, that priority is given 
to U.S. citizens to work on campus. 
The foreign student can only apply for 
work authorization after being in the 
United States for at least a year on a 
student visa. This authorization can 
take from one to six months, some 
times even more, to be processed. In 
some cases, if the student follows the 
immigration regulations, he/she might 
not, legally, be permitted to accept 
employment, off-campus, before the 
junior year. 

In other words the student would 
have to fulfill the 24 weeks employment 
requirement within two years when it is 
supposed to be completed within four 
years! Do you think this is fair? 

Since the international advisor or 
financial aid office knows, or at least 
should know, about these problems, do 
you think it is fair to keep giving priority 

to U.S. citizens for on-campus em- 
ployment when a student cannot ^ad 
uate from DelVal without having com- 
pleted the 24 weeks employment 

The regulation about the priority ga en 
to U.S. citizens apply usually when the 
work experience is not a requirement 
to graduate, but in the case of Delaware 
Valley College, isn't the situation 

Why do you think most of the col 
leges and universities in the United 
States do not require such a program to 
graduate with a Bachelor Degree? 

The reason is probably the fact that 
foreign students have difficulty following 
all the procedures for an employment 
authorization, and do not have the 
same employment opportunity as 
American students. This is also the 
reason why such a program, usually 
called a cooperative program, is optional 
and not required to get a Bachelor 
Degree in most institutions. 

Don't you think Delaware Valley Col- 
lege should start to think about making 
some changes in its employment pro 
gram or at least re design it for its inter- 
national students? 

DelVal is now trying to expand and 
change its image, and is also trying to 
get more international students. This 
would be probably one of the many 
steps Delaware Valley College should 
make in order to attract new foreign

Delaware Valley College will again be 
offering it's popular three day short 
courses on beekeeping. The courses 
are designed for beekeepers, for those 
considering taking up beekeeping, and 
for those interested in learning nfK>re 
about the honey bee. Beekeeping is a 
very interesting hobby, and in addition 
to providing the beekeeper with honey, 
it also provides valuable polHnati<-)n of 
garden and wild plants. Honey bees can 
be kept just about anywhere, m fact 
there are a number of people keeping 
bees right in the City of Philadelphia. 
Over the years, the course has been 
attended by people from all over the 
United States, from a number of foreign 
countries, as well as by local people. 

The course will include most pertinent 
aspects of beekeeping including equip- 
ment, apiary location, seasonal manage- 
ment, honey production, beeswax 
candle making, and home uses of honey. 
Illustrated class room instruction will be 
coupled with hands on experience 
utilizing the College's Bee Yard and its 
Honey House. The course is under the 
direction of Dr. Bob Berthold, the 
College's beekeeping specialist, and he 
will be assisted by Mr. Jack Matthenius, 
the N.J. Dept. of Agriculture Supervisor 
of Bee Culture, Retired. 

The spring course will be held on 
three Saturdays, March 31, April 7 and 
21, 1990. The summer course this year 
will be an advanced course, and it will 
be held on Friday, Saturday, and 
Sunday, June 22, 23, and 24, 1990. 
Classes will start at 8:30 A.M. and end 
by 4:00 P.M. 

There is a nominal cost for the courses 
With a discount for DVC students. 
Further information and applications 
can be obtained from Dr. Berthold, 
Mrs. Noonan, Mandell Hall, and Mrs. 
Martin, Lasker Hall.

sympathetic. The Sophomore Class, to 
which I am advisor, has repeatedly held 
activities in an attempt to give you 
something to do. Picnics, Monday Night 
Football Specials and most recently a 
trip to Philadelphia to watch the 76ers 
play the Knicks. A game for first place in 
the East and undoubtedly one of the 
best games of the season. We had even 
chartered a bus so all you had to do is 
walk to the gym and you were on your 
way. The cost of all this was only $10.00. 
The tickets alone were $12.00. The 
class had advertised, gone around to 
the dorms to personally try to sell 
tickets, opened sales to all DVC students 
and yet, on game day, we still had 20 
unsold tickets. Nine hundred plus 
students and we can't get 50 to go to a 
ballgame. Unbelievable!!!! It makes me 
wonder if we are going to get anybody 
to go to our Dinner Dance on March 
30th. We are also planning a bus to 
Great Adventure and White Water 
Rafting when the weather warms up, 
but given the response to our other 
attempts to give you something to do, 
we will probably scrap them. I refuse to 
let the same small group of hard working 

officers expend all that time and energy 
for essentially nothing. 

It's not that there is nothing to do 
around here, it's that YOU DON'T DO 
ANYTHING. We would probably have 
trouble running a free trip to Disney 
World over Spring Break (and many of 
you would probably say that there is 
nothing to do there). Well, WE GIVE 
UP. What do you want to do? We are 
going to continue to collect dues, but 
until you come up with some ideas for 
activities that you will support, the 
money will sit and earn interest. If it 
doesn't get spent before graduation, we 
will donate it to some worthy cause. 

Activities don't just happen (Louis 
Pasteur debunked the idea of 
spontaneous generation a long time 
ago) they require effort and planning. 
The ball is now in your court. YOU put 
forth the effort and planning and come 
to us with your ideas and we'll try to 
fund them. You want a Senior Trip? 
You had better get moving because I 
can tell you from experience (this is the 
fourth class I have advised) they require 
a lot of work and you had better start 
early. College life is what you make it 
and you guys just ain't making it. 

Sincerely frustrated, 

Ronald E. Johnson 
Advisor, Class of "92 


Will the new revised visitation policy 
hinder or help? Will it control the flow of 
unauthorized people entering DelVal's 
campus? Hopefully, this will stop 
undesirables from free access to the 
campus. However, it could cause 
problems where problems may not exist. 

For example, is there enough security 
personnel to enforce the rules and do 
the paperwork? Have the procedures 
been completely outlined and have the 
students been informed? Also how many 
people will try to get on campus without 
being detected, because it is a challenge? 

Having compared the new revised 
policy with the guidelines written in the 
1989-1990 Student Handbook there are 
some contradictions. The Handbook 
lists the maximum room visitation hours 
for visitors of the opposite sex only. The 
revised policy lists maximum room 
visitation hours that apply to everyone. 
The Student Handbook also states each 
residence hall can participate in the 
limited visitation hours program, which 
provides the opportunity for members 

of the opposite sex to visit in the 
residence halls. Before a living unit can 
participate in the limited visitation hours 
program there is a standard procedure 
that must be followed. This procedure 
requires a proposal of the desired 
program, posted for viewing prior to 
voting by secret ballot, with 75% of the 
residents voting for the program. 

Many students, resident asistants, 
and community coordinators are in 
favor of the policy as a whole, but they 
have reservations on a few points. They 
feel there shouldn't be a time limit on 
visitors, and that students shouldn't 
have to go to security to verify visitors. 
Students also pointed out that many 
times the policy is not enforced until 
there is an incident, and on occasion 
the dorm doors are not locked at the 
specified time. 

Of course the policies are not perfect, 
but they should at least be consistent 
with the guidelines.

.. Rob, thanks for the info on the 
Goldman 2nd showers. Prompt 
cleanup followed. 

.. Thanks for the calls concerning the 
lack of hot water in Berkowitz. In 
both cases we followed up im- 
mediately. If there is more specific 
data, which you can pass, it would be 
helpful — such as floor, shower 
location, etc. 

.. For the young female student who is 
upset over the lack of 5 and 10 pound 
weights in the lifting room, I share 
your concern. Too many school- 
owned weights find their way into 
individual student rooms! 

. . Tabor not clean! That's a first for this 
school year! We sent a member from 
our housekeeping staff right over as 
soon as you passed on the in- 

.. No, visitors do not have to 
surrender their driver's license when 
they register at DVC as a guest. The 
March 1st article on DVC security 
was not exactly up-to-date. Soon Mr. 
Filachek will publish our current 
(modified) visitation policy. 

.. Eric and Paige, thanks for your 
comments and suggestions con- 
cerning the 90/91 Academic Calendar 
of events. Once the student inputs 
are all in, they will be passed on to 
Dr. Hill. 

. . Your nice words concerning the great 
job the Grounds Crew is doing are 
appreciated. "Well Done" to Tim 
Varacallo and his support staff! 

. . Yes, non-students caused us all sorts 
of problems last weekend (3 and 4 
March)! You do not have to put up 
with such behavior — call Security at 
2314 or 2315. If in doubt call, give 
us many details as possible, i.e. 
dorm/floor/ room etc. Your call is 
appreciated, so often the feeling is 
generated that anyone should be 
able to be free to go anywhere on 
campus at anytime! 

.. Thanks Donna Miolszar for your 
March 5th call.. As per discussion, 
please contact Dean Graver and Mr. 
Filachek and hopefully we can get 
moving on your splendid ideas. 

.. The bathroom in tha Ag Machinery 
building was promptly cleaned, but 
what a mess the users left us! 

.. P & P Day constructive comments 
are always appreciated. Keep in mind 
the examples we used in the MEMO 
were merely suggestions. Since you 
call, we have decided to delay the 
fence project until this summer. We 
do need your best recommendations 
for projects plus your 100% support 
on the 18th of April. See you there!

This year, the Delaware Valley 
Lacrosse Glub gained new hope in 
forming the Delaware Valley Lacrosse 
Team, where they will contend in the 
Mid Atlantic Conference Division Three 

This year, for the first time, Delaware 
Valley College Administration an- 
nounced that they would do what they 
could to help the club in forming the 
Delaware Valley Lacrosse Team. 
Members of the club feel that, by the 
year 1992, the club will be a team. 

In 1982 a group of students formed 
the Delaware Valley Lacrosse Club, in 
hopes of starting a new sport at the 

Lacrosse is a sport which seems to be 
gaining much of the public's interest. It 
is called the fastest sport on feet. 

This years captain, Chris Falkler, 
mentioned that the college was semi- 
cooperative when he discussed getting 
some necessary articles for the club. 
Falkler also stated that he was very 
excited for the upcoming season. He 
said "We have 22 players this year and 
15 are returning players. Judging from 
our indoor league, we have plenty of 
talent. Now we just have to organize it." 

Chris has planned several fundraisers 
for the club in order to make money to 
pay for the officials. The Lacrosse Club 
will be running a penny drive, where 
they will be collecting pennies from 
each dorm on campus. 

The first game will be at home on 
March 31, at 1:00 P.M. against Penn 
State Delaware campus, the game will 
be played on the soccer field. The club 
asks for your support.

The Mechanical Honey Bee Security Lecture 

On Thursday evening, March 29, 
1990 beginning at 8:00 P.M. in the Music 
Room on the second floor of the Student 
Center of Delaware Valley College in 
Doylestown, PA, Dr. William Towne 
will be presenting a talk dealing with the 
Mechanical Honey Bee. The meeting is 
being sponsored by the College, the 
College's Beekeeping Club, and the 
Bucks County and Montgomery County 
Beekeeping Associations. 

Dr. William Towne is an Assistant 
Professor of Biology, Kutztown 
University, Kutztown, PA. His talk will 
deal with the mechanical honey bee. 
Dr. Towne recently collaborated with 
some European honey bee researchers 
to design and construct a computer 
operated mechanical honey bee. With 
their mechanical bee, the researchers 
have been able to emulate normal honey 
bee dances within the hive. Their 

research was recently covered in a 
feature article in the National Geo- 
graphic. It was also the cover story in 
Science News, and it was documented 
in Time Magazine. 

Much of the early research on honey 
bee behavior was done by the late Dr. 
Karl von Frisch who won the Nobel 
Prize in 1974 for his work." What von 
Frisch found was that the honey bee 
was able to communicate the location 
of food sources to hive mates by doing 
highly sophisticated dances. In the 
1970's, von Frische's work came under 
attack by those who claimed that food 
source locations were communicated 
solely by odors. The mechanical bee 
research now seems to lend support to 
von Frischs' original work. 

Available information can be obtained 
by calling the college at (215) 345- 1500.

Not too long from now Spring will be 
here. The weather will be much more 
pleasant and everyone will be itching to 
be out of stuffy classrooms and enjoy 
the day. Well if you hop into your car 
and drive about 20 minutes down Rt. 
202 towards New Hope, you will find a 
perfect place to enjoy that particular 
day. This place is called Peddler's Village. 

Peddler's Village is a very popular 
place in the Bucks County area. People 
from all over come here to walk around 
to enjoy the scenery and to do some 
shopping. One way to describe the 
village is a large, beautifully landscaped, 
outside mall. It has a vast amount of 
assorted stores to choose from. They 
have more variety than you can imagine, 
no one store is alike. They have every- 
thing from a contemporary art shop 
called the Artisian's Gallery, to BenOre 
which sells things that your grandmother 
probably collected. There is another 
shop called the Paper Barn which is a 
store that sells cards and much, much 
more. The Robin's Nest, one of the 
largest attractions, is an exotic bird 

If you get hungry, don't worry about 
finding a place to eat because the 
Village has over seven restaurants. If 

you're just looking for a snack place to 
eat with a good atmosphere, then the 
place you want is Hat's or TheSpotted 
Hog. In a hurry? Well then stop by 
Animal Crackers, which is a classy 
McDonalds! But if your cup of tea is a 3 
or 4 course dinner then try the Cock-n- 
Bull, or Jenny's. And lastly, if you want 
a hearty soup and sandwich meal, the 
place to be is the Cafe, or The Peddler's 
Pub. For those of you that have a sweet 
tooth, try Auntie Em's homemade ice 
cream shop!! 

Peddler's Village has a beautiful, well 
polished look about it. It is filled with all 
types of trees, shrubs, and an old 
fashioned waterwheel that really works. 
Each season they offer certain events 
and competitions. In the fall they have 
their annual scarecrow competition 
where the shoppers get to vote for their 
favorite scarecrow. In the winter, around 
Christmas time, the village is beautifully 
decorated with lights and this is also 
when they have the Gingerbread House 
contest. When Spring and Summer 
finally roll around, you may go and 
enjoy the Peach and Strawberry 
Festivals. These are I very tasty events 
to enjoy! 

So when that sunny warm day comes 
around, and you need to get away, head 
down and spend a day at Peddler's 

Mr. Filacheck gave a lecture to the 
residents of Berkowitz dorm on 3-7-90. 
He discussed self defense tactics as 
well as some security measures. Some 
suggestions to improve security are: 

1. Use a card control access system to 

2. Change dorm visitation policies and 
allow overnight visitors of the 
opposite sex with the consent of the 
roommate. This will lead to less door 

3. Have a student monitor by the front 

4. Form a security committee in every 
dorm. (Berk is in the process of 
doing so). 

5. Confront offenders of security rules. 

Ask them to consider the safety of 

others. If necessary, even impliment 

If you have any suggestions, please 

write them down and present it to 

residence life and/or security. Mr. 

Filacheck is looking into buying air 

sirens and personal door alarms. If you 

are interested in buying one or if you 

would like him to lecture in your dorm, 

please contact him at security (extension 


We Can Make You 
Laugh: Success 

by Audra Cinalli 

The Student's Activity Committee 
presented "We Can Make You Laugh", 
a two hour comedy show, Thursday 
evening, February 22, in the Student 
Center at Delaware Valley College. The 
event drew over 120 students. 

The first hour of the show involved 
standup comedy by its three principal 
performers: John Mallery, Cathy Sorbo 
and Andre Keely. Each of the performers 
had their own unique style and were 
hilariously funny. The second hour of 
the show got the audience involved by 
challenging them to laugh. All con- 
testants were judged by their ability to 
keep a straight face. The judges were 
Paige Barnett, Dr. Allan Nash and Art 
Ruediger. Any contestant not able to 
keep a straight face was given a "We 
Can Make You Laugh" T-shirt. The 
judges declared one winner, Todd 
Herman, who received the grand prize 
of $25. 

It will be a long time before any 
member of the audience will be able to 
watch a rerun of "The Brady Bunch" 
and not recall Cathy Sorbo's im- 
personation of Shent Brady, the 
unknown Brady boy, or recall John 
Mallery 's procedure of escapirig from a 
straight jacket. However, for those who 
missed the act, you were kept from 
three great performers.

Dear Editors 

I am writing in reference to Stephanie 
Mason's article "Possible Renovations 
in the Near Future" (Ram pages 3/01/90 
p. 3). Stephanie is on the right track 
when she talks about lack of facilities 
here at Delaware Valley College. We 
just don't have adequate receational or 
residential facilities for the student body 
as a whole. Yes, we have a brand new 
dairy and equine facilities that add 
prestige and modernization to the 
college, but they only serve a limited 
number of students. Yes, we are intro- 
ducing new majors and minors to attract 
a broader base of students to this 
campus. Yes, we are in financial difficulty 
and may not be able to afford a new 
dormitory and recreation center within 
the new year or two. But how are we to 
attract and hold these students in our 
new majors (English now, Mathematics 
and Criminal Justice soon) if we don't 
have modern facilities that accom- 
modate the WHOLE student body? I'm 
talking about a modern recreation facility

Each year the Delaware Valley College 
weight room loses more and more 
weight lifting equipment to the football 

There are two weight rooms on 
campus, one in the gym, and one in the 
football stadium. The weight room in 
the gym is for the entire campus to use, 
whereas the weight room in the stadium 
is for football players only. 

Many students find it very unfair that 
the football team is able to take a 
majority of the equipment to their weight 
room. In the past year, the neck machine 
along with several other machines were 
taken to the stadium so that the football 
team could use them. 

It seems that football takes priority 
with the weights over the rest of the 
school, but why? 

Being as small as it is, it seems very 
unusual that Delaware Valley College 
has two weight rooms on campus. 
Many students complain that the main 
campus weight room lacks certain 
equipment. The reason for this is 
because the football team has taken it 
to the stadium. 

After talking to several students who 
both play and don't play football, 
students feel that there should be one 
weight room on campus. This would 
allow no exclusions from the use of 
certain equipment.

In the Ram Pages dated 3/1/90, a 
very interesting article detailing the 
proposed D.V.C. visitation policy was 
written by Erin E. Troutman. I'd like to 
point out that, because of some adjust- 
ment problems, there have been 
changes made so that we still have a 
working visitation policy while some 
bugs are being worked out. 

The requirement that a visitor leave a 
driver's license has been suspended. 
However, visitors are rquired to identify 
themselves. We have not yet established 
a prefered visitor list. 

We are continuously speaking to 
students, faculty and staff, seeking imput 
from them so that together we can 
design a visitation policy which provides 
a reasonable level of security and at the 
same time, minimize any impact on 
personal convenience.

I I I 

When my friends and I graduated 
from high school, we all took part-time 
jobs to pay for college. 

Tney ended up in car washes and 
hamburger joints, putting in long hours 
for little pay. 

Not me. My job takes just one 
weekend a month and two weeks a year. 
Yet, I'm earning $18,000 for college. 

Because I mined my local Army 
National Guard. 

They're the people who help our 
state during emergencies like hurri- 
canes and floods. They're also an 
important part of our country's military 

So, since I'm helping them do such 
an important job, they're helping me 
make it through school. 


As soon as I finished Advanced 
Training, the Guard gave me a cash 
bonus of $2,000. I'm also getting 
another $5,000 for tuition and books, 
thanks to the New GI Bill. 

Not to mention my monthly Army 
Guard paychecks. Theyll add up to 
more than $11,000 over the six years 
I'm in the Guard. 

And if I take out a college loan, the 
Guard will help me pay it back— up to 
$1,500 a year, plus interest. 

It all adds up to $18,000-or more 
—for college for just a little of my time. 
And that's a heck of a better deal than 
any car wash will give you.

What is Super Stars weekend you 
ask? Well that's simple... Super Stars 
Weekend is two days of fun, games, 
and competition! There will be 25 teams. 
Each of the teams will be made up of 6 
people (3 girls/3 guys). Teams may

At high noon on Thursday, March 15, 
1990 a queen honey bee, Victoria-Jen 
was born in the DVC Apiary. Her 
mother was a pure bred Italian queen, 
Holly-Dee. Her paternal Hneage could 
not be determined because the mating 
sign attached to her mother upon her 
return to the colony was not adequate 
for determination of her sire. A visial 
determination of her sire was also not 
possible, since the mating occurred in 
flight at 1,200 feet with her parents 
flying at 15 miles per hour.

The inaugural course in a new series 
of certificate course offerings in the 
dramatic and performing arts at 
Delaware Valley College will be 
"Playwright's Roundtable" taught by 
nationally known actor, director and 
playwright, Pascual Vaquer. It beigns 
on Tuesday, April 10, 1990. 

"Playwright's Roundtable", an eight 
week course, will be held on Tuesday 
evenings from 4pm to 7pm in the Music 
Room of DVC's Student Center. The 
class will be open to a maximum of 20 
students. The fee is $250 per student. 

This forumstyle class will give play- 
wrights and aspiring playwrights the 
opportunity to engage in the process of 
creating works for the theater based 
upon the age-old tradition of a strong 
story line, solid characterization, and 
forceful dialogue. The classwork will 
encompass drama, comedy, musical, 
operatic and screenplay formats. The 
object of this course is to make writing 
fun instead of an effort. 

The creative process begins with the 
choice of appropriate material and 
moves through research, the outline, 
the placement of dramatic milestones, 
dialogue and characterization, rewriting 
to the end result which is a rehearsal 
draft of a one-act play. 

Each class is divided into three parts 
to include: lecture; reading and 
discussion of completed weekly assign- 
ments; and writing, reading and dis- 

cussion of classroom work. Each week's 
completed assignment is the building 
block for the following week's assign- 
ment, a system which results in a 
completed play. 

"Playwright's Roundtable" was 
created by Pascual Vaquer at the Actor's 
Institute in New York City, and has 
been on-going for four years. Mr. 
Vacquer is a graduate of Boston 
University's School of Fine and Applied 
Arts and has been acting, directing, 
writing and teaching in New York, Los 
Angeles and locally. His comedy, 
"Kevin's Bar Mitzvah" and his drama, 
"The Cure" both earned him grants 
from the Pennsylvania Council on the 
Arts, and the New Hope Borough Arts 
Commission. "The Cure" will be going 
into production, under Mr. Vaquer's 
direction in the fall of 1990 in New York 

Mr. Vaquer now lives in Bucks County 
where he continues to write and to 
teach aspiring and seasoned local play- 
wrights and screen writers. 

The new performing arts series at 
Delaware Valley College will encompass 
the dramatic and performing arts to 
include acting, directing, producing, 
writing for radio, writing for television, 
stage design and musical comedy. For 
more information about this series, or 
to register for the "Playwright's 
Roundtable," please call 345-1500,

The Camp Horsemanship Associ- 
ation, the national licensing body for a

send its top clinician, Mr. Dan Arnold, 
to Delaware Valley College to oversee 
the coaching, and to license the DVC 
students for the English riding style

A Letter from 
The White House 

I am pleased to extend warm greetings 
to all those gathered at Delaware Valley 
College for the Global Affairs 
Symposium. This meetirig of dis- 
tinguished representatives of academia, 
government, and private industry will 
no doubt produce many valuable 

As we look around us, we know that 
the world of March 1990 is a very 
different place from the world of March 
1989. We have seen some of the most 
extraordinary events of the 20th Century 
occur in the span of only a few short 
months: from the tearing down of the 
Berlin Wall to the rise of democratic 
movements throughout Central and 
Eastern Europe. In Panama, we have 
seen a dictatorial strongman deposed 
and replaced by a democratically elected 
government. More recently, we have 
rejoiced with the people of Nicaragua as 
they began to reclaim their country 
from the control of a Marxist-Leninist 

Yet, this new world of hope also 
poses challenges. The cause of security, 
peace, and freedom still requires an 
America that is strong, an America that 
is engaged in the world, and an America 
that is a leader. New democracies need 
our help and support; peoples still 
laboring under tyranny need our 
encouragement; and conflicts that 
continue to bring terror and destruction 
to certain regions of the world call for 
our continuing diplomatic efforts. 

This Symposium provides an excellent 
opportunity to explore the many new 
opportunities and challenges that our 
nation, indeed, our world, will face in 
the months and years to come. I thank 
all of you for sharing your knowledge 
and expertise — such exchanges of 
ideas and information can shed new 
light upon very large and complex issues. 

Barbara joins me in offering our best 
wishes for a productive and enjoyable 
series of discussions. God bless you, 
and God bless America.

The Gerry Guzzy Story 

For those students who take our 
Apiculture (beekeeping) course, one of 
the course requirements is that the 
students must participate in selling 
honey at A-Day. We feel that this is 
justified, since one aspect of Apiculture 
is the sale of honey products. During 
the first year that I taught Apiculture, 
there was a student in the class by the 
name of Gerry G uzzy . Gerry considered 
himself to be a tough individual, since 
he had graduated from East Side 
(Paterson, NJ) High School which has 
rcscently gained national notoriety due 
to its current baseball bat carrying 
principal. Gerry prided himself that he 
went home every weekend, never 
participated in any on campus activities, 
and never been to or taken part in A- 
Day. After he found out about the 
Apiculture A-Day requirement, he asked 
his roommate what he thought I would 
do if he skipped A-Day to which his 
roommate replied that "Doc Berthold 
was probably a son of a B enough to 
flunk him". Therefore, it was with much 
beating of breasts, pulling of hair, and 
gnashing of teeth that Gerry participated 
in A-Day. After class the following week, 
Gerry came up to me (and 1 figured that

responsibilty for the financial progress 
of the institution, its budgets and other 
financial matters. For the past three 
months Roy Hager has been volun 
teering his time to work essentially full 
time at DVC. He has worked as a 
trustee, as our treasurer, as a full-time 
volunteer and, in addition, he con 

tributes of himself and financially to the 
College. He has met with dozens of 
College personnel to "test the tem- 
perature" of our organization. He has 
done all of this without one penny of 
compensation and he has done it for the 
good of the College and our students.

Yes fin-addicts, its ofish-al. Another season is upon us. (Yeah, at last, finally, 
something to live for!!!!) That means it is time for the DVC Fishing Club to have its first 
and in some years, only meeting. So this 

will be the date of this gala affair. On the agenda is the upcoming trout season and 
shad run (incidentally a few have already been caught) with suggestions of where to 
fish locally. Members will be invited to share some of their secrets (after all, club 
members are sworn to secrecy). Another highlight of the program will be the 
presentation of Charlie White's Videp titled "Salmon Spectacular". Charlie White has 
developed a camera that actually records the action of lures underwater and the 
response of fish to them. I have seen it and it is one of the best fishing video's around. 
So plan to take a study break and join us. I expect we will order pizza and soda. Any 
questions or suggestions, contact Ron Johnson, Agb 1 10, Ext. 2326. See you there. 

Peer Counselors Needed 

Remember those first few hectic and scary days of your Freshman year? There was 
a Peer Counselor there to assist you in your transition; someone who had been there 
before and remembered what it was like. The Peer Counselor was there to answer 
your questions and make sure you could find your way around your new home. 

The Counseling Center is looking for a few good men and women to fill this role for 
the class of 1994. It involves returning to school in August a few days early to 
participate in a workshop and in the Freshmen Orientation. It also involves a 
commitment to the Freshmen throughout the year. There is no pay involved, 
however there is tremendous satisfaction in knowing you have helped the next group 
along the way to an enjoyable and successful college experience. 

Applications for Peer Counseling positions can be picked up in the Counseling 
Center from Betsy Arrison. If you have questions or would like to learn more about 
the job ask a current Peer Counselor or stop by and see Betsy or Mr. Fulcoly. 

The deadline for applying will be April 16, 1990. If you are good with people and are 
willing to extend yourself to the class of 1994 we would love to hear from you.

career in February 1950 as a teller at the 
First National Bank in Perkasie. 
Apparently, he kept his daily accounts 
and balances in order because 38 years 
later and since August of 1983, he has 
served as Chairman and Chief Executive 
Officer of Independence Bancorp Inc. a 
multi-bank holding company which 
administers five separate banks in- 
cluding the Bucks County Bank and 
Trust Company. Working his way up 

from teller to Chief Executive Officer 
required many interim steps, collecting 
vast experience in financial areas and 
markets and a thorough knowledge of 
administration and personal relations. 
In civic and charitable participation 
Roy Hager has worked for the Rotary 
Club, the Chamber of Commerce, 
various church volunteer activities, 
Pennridge High School, the Penn 
sylvania Bankers Association, the 
United Way, the Pierce Library 
Association, the American Institute of 
Banking, and the American Bankers 
Association. He is today participating in 
the Boy Scouts, Rotary and the United 
Way as well as several additional civic 
and charitable activities. Roy Hager is 
native to this area having been brought 
up in Perkasie. He has served both as 
an enlisted man and a commissioned 
officer in the United States Army, 
achieving the rank of Major prior to his 
retirement from the service in February 

He has received recognition awards 
from the Boy Scouts, the Central Bucks 
Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary 
Club and the Pennridge Chamber of 
Commerce. He serves today on the 
Professional Board of Directors of 
several banks including Independence 
Bancorp Inc. He is constantly sought 
after by legislators, local leaders and 
business leaders and is recognized as a 
top civic leader in our area. 

In Roy Hager's new capacity as 
Executive Vice President and Treasurer 
of the College, he will supervise the 
financial administration, personnel, 
management information systems and 
will represent the College in legislative 
matters. Mr. John Pyne, Comptroller, 
Mr. Jack Rininger, Assistant to the 
President, and Mrs. Rita Chrismer, 
Personnel Manager, will report to Mr. 
Hager effective April 1, 1990. Other 
administrative and staff duties and 
responsibilities may be assigned to Mr. 
Hager's department from time to time. 

In strengthening the financial posture 
of the College, it is entirely appropriate 
that a senior executive with over thirty- 
five years of experience become in- 
volved. Please welcome Roy Hager as a 
new employee of the College.

medicine and technology, held Wed 
nesday, March 28th at Delaware Valley 

"Just because we can do something 
technologically, ought we to do it 
ethically?" was the topic of the keynote 
address, given by Sister Patricia 
Talone, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of 
Humanities at Gwynedd Mercy College. 
The speech focused on gutldelin€s by 
which society should determine which 
technological advances should be 

Students then participated in dis

Winter Academic Honor Roll for his 
outstanding efforts both on the basket- 
ball court and in the classroom. 

Linde, who carries a 3.94 grade point

DVC Students Attend 
PA-IFL Convention 

by Brad A. Bittner 

Recently students Jennifer Bilsard 
and Brad Bittner attended the Penn- 
sylvania Intercollegiate Federation for 
Life (PA IFL) Convention at Pcnn State 
University on March 23-25. The con- 
ventions arc held each semester at a 
different member-university to discuss 
ideas and share information concerning 
Pro-Life issues and events that occur in 
the United States, the state of Penn- 
sylvania and on PA college campuses. 
Topics of major discussion at the recent 
convention were the effects of upcoming 
primaries and elections on the pro- 
abortion/ pro-life movements and the 
April 28 Rally for Life in Washington, 
DC. Talks were presented by PA Pro- 
Life Federation President, Garnett 
Biviano, on "The Prospects for PA Pro- 
Lifers," professor Stephen Krason on 
"The American History of Abortion," 
PegLucsik, PA Gubernatorial candidate 
for governor, Carol Everett on "Inside 
the Abortion Industry" and various 
workshops to discuss ideas and elect 
new PA IFL officers. 

Our hosts were wonderful and we 
had a great time while learning a great 
deal about the collegiate Pro-Life move- 
ment and how each of us can do our 
part to protect the lives of the unborn, 
the aged, and the disabled. If you would 
like to learn more about the PA-IFL 
and/or start a chapter at Delaware 
Valley College, please contact Jen

Delaware Valley College senior guard 
Laura Rotz (St. Hubert's/Philadelphia, 
PA) has been selected to the Middle 
Atlantic conference (MAC) Northeast 
Section all-Star team for the third 
consecutive year for her outstanding 
play during the 1989-90 season. 

"She's the best to ever play at 
Delaware Valley," said DelVal coach 
Gary Pento. "She's done everything 
that was expected of her and despite 
facing junk defenses all season, she was 
still able to become the school's all-time 
leading scorer." 

The 5foot'8 co-captain finished her 
career as the school's all-time leading 
scorer, netting 1,413 career points, 
including a single-season record 474

team leading 90 assists, while making 8 1 

The All-American candidate led the 
Lady Aggies in scoring eighteen times 
during the year, including nine outings 
of twenty or more points. She became 
just the second player in DelVal

Spring is here!! With the coming of 
Spring, can outdoor carnivals be far 
behind? Big and small carnivals set up 
all over the area sponsored by a variety 
of causes and organizations. I must 
emphasize that all carnivals are not 
dishonest, but you should be aware of 
the possibilities of illegal rigging in some 
of the games of chance. Below is listed a 
sample of some of the games and how 
they can be rigged. Forewarned is 
Game: Coin Falls 
Operation: Attempt to drop a coin on a 
tray which is being swept by a bar which 
is supposed to cause coins to fall into a 
payoff slot. 

Rigging.- Sometimes the end of the tray 
has a small lip which prevents coins 
falling. Side slots accept coins which do 
not fall into payoff slot. 
Game: Diggers 

Operation: Miniature steam shovel or a 
sliding bar which is supposed to move 
merchandise to a slot where it falls into 
a payoff receptacle. 
Rigging; Jaws of shovel are too sma'' or 
too weak to grip merchandise Some 
times a slip gear causes the arm or 
shovel to move back after you stop it, 
thereby misaligning your efforts. 
Game: Balloon Darts 
Operation: Throw a dart, break a 
balloon and get the prize behind or 
below the balloon. 

Rigging.' The large prize balloons are 
Game: Coin Toss 
Operation: Toss coins onto dishes to 
win prizes. 

Rigging: Dishes for large prizes set 
under handing prizes, waxed, or set at a 
slight angle. If coin must land in a circle 
on the dish, circle is raised with lacquer 
or plastic. 

Game: Mouse Game 
Operation: Bets are made on numbers 
or colors. A live mouse is let loose in a 
pit surrounded with holes which are 
either numbered or colored. The color 
or number of the hole the mouse enters 
is the winner. 

Rigging; Sometimes a hidden foot 
control closed holes. Operator may dip 
finger in ammonia and touch the hole of 
color or number with smallest amount 
of bet. Mouse is attracted to that hole 
and enters. 

Game: Spinning Wheels 
Operation: Spin of the wheel, and if it 
lands on a certain number, you win. 
Rigging; Mechanical or magnetic brake; 
misaligned pins on edge of wheel. 
This is part one of guidelines for carnival 
games. We will put part two in the next 
Ram Pages.

President Rorer with nrrembers of the Polish Delegation 

DVC Signs Agreement with Polish University 

Officials from Delaware Valley College 
traveled to Washington, D.C. Friday, 
April 6 to sign a Tripartite Agreement of 
Cooperation with the University of 
Florida and the University of Poznkan, 

The agreement developed from the 
collective efforts of all three institutions 
to develop closer Polish-American 
relations through mutually beneficial 
agricultural projects in research, 
extension and teaching, according to 
Polish Ambassador Jan Kinast. 

"This cooperation has involved the 
exchange of numerous scientists and 
will now involve the exchange of 
students as well," said Kinast. 
"Significant financial support has been 
given this project through the United 
States Information Agency with official 
recognition and sanction of both the 
Polish and American governments." 

Two students from the University of 
Poznan have been visiting the Delaware 
Valley College campus since March 29. 
Maciej Sip and Pr2emyslaw Baranjecki 
have attended classes, taken part in 
agricultural club activities and lived in a 

dorm since their arrival. 

Three faculty members from the 
University of Poznan arrived on April 1 . 
Wlodzimierz Fiszer. President of the 
University, Dr. Jerry Pudelko, Professor 
of Agronomy, and Zbigniew Sniatala, 
Professor of English, have toured local 
farm operations and met with members 
of the DVC faculty and administration 
during their stay. 

The entire delegation took part in the 
College's International Day program on 
April 3 as well as its Founders' Day 
Program and Reception on April 4. 

On Thursday, April 5, the Polish 
delegation toured Independence Hall 
and the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia 
before attending the monthly meeting 
of The Philadelphia Society for the 
Promotion of Agriculture. 

On Friday, April 6, the group departed 
for Washington at noon, with a reception 
scheduled for the Polish Embassy at 7 

On Saturday, April 7, the delegation 
toured the National Shrine of Our Lady 
of Czestochowa in New Britain Town- 
ship as well as local supermarkets.

Mr. Edward O'Brien, 

Dr. Richard Ziemcr 

Suppose four people are walking 
aimlessly down the street and come 
across a house on fire and hear cries for 
help from inside. It is possible that each 
one would react differently. One person 
might heroically rush into the blazing 
house to rescue the victim. Another 
person might run to call the fire depart- 
ment, while a third might offer immediate 
reaction, but later press for stricter fire 
codes and greater fire safety and 
prevention awareness. The fourth 
person may choose to ignore the tragedy 
completely, thinking "it's not my 
problem, why should I get involved?" Or, 
perhaps this person feels the situation is 
already under control and they are not 

All of these are feasable reactions 
people might have if faced with such a 
tragedy, and all are beneficial, with the 
exception of the last one. The last 
person should stop to realize that if 
everyone took on this type of attitude 
nothing would be accomplished. In other 
words, everyone should offer their 
services, no matter how inconsequential 
they may seem — because it all adds 

This scenario can be applied to the 
Pro-Life movement. Presently, it is 
unfortunate that there are some people 
who detest abortion, the killing of 
defenseless, innocent life, but fail to 
take a stand because of the preceeding 
reasons. Fortunately, however, there 
are also those of us willing to take action 
to protect the unborn. (They cannot 
fight for themselves.) If anyone is 
interested in getting involved in a 
Pennsylvania Intercollegate Federation 
for Life (PA-IFL) chapter at DVC, please 
contact either Brad Bittner, box 222, or 
myself, Jennifer Blisard, box 624. We 
recently attended a convention of the 
PA-IFL at Penn State University that 
was very inspirational. Chapters from 
many schools attended the event at 
which we exchanged information, 
encouragement, understanding, and 
support. Let's show the other chapters 
what we can do! We look forward to 

your support.

Prater Vigil 

It came as a pleasant surprise to me 
that at 10:00 p.m. a group meets in the 
chapel to pray regularly on campus. 
That's the good news; the other good 
news is that anyone is invited to attend. 
We need a method by which we can 
relay requests for prayer to this group. 
Any ideas? How about a prayer vigil 
box in the Dining Room? 

Dr. Richard C. Ziemer 


. . Dave thanks for your concern when 
it comes to students and their overall 
safety when walking to/from classes 
and the dining room. Between Dr. 
Martin, Mr. Filachek, Mr. Kane and 
others, we are studying the most 
cost-effective means of outlining our 
roads, curbs, etc. 

. . By now the pay phone has been 
repaired in Elson Hall. Please tell 
your pals to not abuse the phones - 

. . Yes, an older/unwelcomed group 
was in our gym recently. Key 
personnel did take action and the 
trespassers were promptly asked to 
leave campus, and they did! 

. . Lack of trash cans in a dorm usually 
tells us a story - - that is the cans have 
been "borrowed" for one reason or 
another. In the future, before 
checking with the Housekeepmg 
personnel, I suggest you check with 
your dorm mates first. 

. . Yes, we know some faculty members 
have stronger teaching techniques 
than others, but thanks for your 
observations and comments. 

. . Yes, some ground (topsoil) has been 
placed in strategic locations as 
temporary storage sites until the soil 
can be used elsewhere on our 
campus. O.K.? Questions? See Mr. 
G. Coulton. 

. . Sorry, for the fish which was placed 
on/behind the radiator in your dorm. 
We hope and trust this sort of prank 
will not happen again. 

. . We're told the striping used on our 
baseball diamond is 100% safe. By 
the way, "well done" to our DVC 
baseball team - - you all are really 
doing A'O.K. 

. . John, Residence Life tells us the TV 
shelves are on order. Thanks for 
your concern. 

. . Sorry, the soda machines ran out, 
they were refilled the next working 
day. Your call, with specific infor- 
mation, was most helpful. 

. . Concerning the use of our Computer 
Classrooms on weekends, the 
available days and times are: 
Saturdays, 12 Noon to 4 P.M. 
Sundays, 6 P.M. to 9 P.M.

On April 22 the country will com- 
memorate the 20th Anniversary of Earth 
Day. The original Earth Day in 1970 was 
the largest organized environmental 
demonstration in history. An estimated 
20 million people participated in it, 
giving birth to the modern environmental 
movement in the United States. 

Earth Day in 1990 will launch the 
Decade of the Environment. Earth Day 
1990 events seek to renew and expand 
the groundswell of support for environ- 

mentally sound products, investments 
and policies. 

An estimated 3,(K)0 events will take 
place nationwide, with an estimated 58 
million people participating. In 
Washington, environmental groups have 
planned a gala Earth Day com- 
memoration. For more information on 
these activities, call the Earth Day 1990

Fcsrrets & Owners Wanted 

Lehigh Valley Ferret Rescue is looking 
for ferrets to be adopted to good homes. 
We currently have ten very fine pets of 
which six can be adopted. 

If you have a pet ferret, or if you have 
found a ferret, or know of an abused 
ferret, whatever the case may be contact 
us today at (215) 266-7189. 

If you would like to have a pet ferret, 

please call us at the same number. We 

have a steady turnover of both altered 

and unaltered male and female ferrets. 

•Many colors to choose from. 

Ferrets are a very friendly, trusting 
animal and make good pets for young 
and old alike. Contrary to popular belief 
they are very easy to keep, you might 
say a "low maintenance pet". Most arc 
litter trained and can be taught to do 

A Ferret will live up to eleven years or 
more with proper care. 

Lehigh Valley Ferret Rescue is a 
young organization set up to protect 
ferrets from being destroyed. Many 
animal shelters will destroy ferrets 
because they do not understand them, 
but here at Lehigh Valley Ferret Rescue 
we have many years of experience. We 
are also registered with the largest

April 23, 1990 

Ferret organization in the world. The 
International Ferret Association. 
Through our combined efforts your 
ferret will receive the best home possible. 

Please call today with any questions. 
You need not give your name or address 
if you do not want to. (215) 266-7189. 
Just because our name in Lehigh Valley 
it does not mean you have to live in the 
Lehigh Valley to call us, or have us take 
care of your ferret. 

How would you like to join a club 
thats strictly ferrets. 

It's purpose is to educate owners, 
perspective owners, and the general 
public about ferrets. Get some laws 
changed concerning ferrets. They are 
not the wild animal many people think 
they are. 

Did you know you can show your 
ferret, and win ribbons, rosettes, etc.? 
With your help we can have our first 
local show in Southeastern Pennsylvania 
in April of 1991. 

The organization will publish a news- 
letter and you can be a part of it. 

These are just a few of the things the 
organization can do. If you want more 
information on anything mentioned 
above please call today. (215) 266-7189 
You can make it work! 


The DVC Hunt Seat (English) 
Equestrian Team completed the regular 
show season on April 8 at High Point 
College in Region V of the IHSA. This is 
the second time in the last three years 
that the DVC team won High Point 
College. Fourteen Colleges compete in 
Region V. 

At High Point College, DVC will 
represent the region in Cartier Cup 
competition at the National Inter- 
collegiate Horse Show at St. Lawrence 
University the weekend of May 4-6. A 
total of 8 riders make up the Cartier 
Cup team. 

For individual riders, Regionals and 
Zones will be held April 14, and April 22, 
respectively. It is therefore possible that 
additional individual riders may qualify 
for National competition in their 
individual class.

Scott Mann Selected 
For IBM Program 

Scott L. Mann, son of Mr. and Mrs. 
Lawrence K. Mann of Solebury, has 
been selected into the co-operative 
education program with IBM Comple- 
mentary Products Division in the 
Unannounced Products Department in 
Princeton, New Jersey. 

He is a junior at Delawrae Valley

Chemistry Department Receives 
Powered Spectrometer 

By Adam Kaplan 

An industrial quality Nuclear Magnetic 
Resonance Spectrometer was recently 
donated to the Chemistry Department 
This instrument was made available to 
the department by Satler Research 
Laboratories in Philadelphia, and two 
DVC class of 1976 graduates. 

Until the new machine was donated, 
students in the upper level chemistry 
classes had been using computer 
simulation software in the laboratory. 
Dr. Orr, chairman of the Chemistry 
Department, says that the new spectro- 
meter "...will complement and supple- 

ment the computer with the real thing." 
This provides the student with a new 
level of practical hands on experience. 
This new instrument will allow the 
student to learn more about the 
structure of the compounds being made 
and studied in the organic chemistry 
courses. Also, in spectroscopy and 
analytical chemistry, the instrument will 
allow the student to find out what they 
have, and how much of it. After the 
freshmen year, the spectrometer will be 
used in almost all of the laboratory 

Dr. Brubaker Elected 
President of Local 
A.A.L.A.S. Branch. 

DVC professor Dr. Brubaker was 
recently elected president of the 
Delaware Valley branch of the American 
Association for Laboratory Animal 
Science, (A.A.L.A.S.). Dr. Brubaker 
will hold this post for the 1990-1991 
session of the D.V.B. A.A.L.A.S This 
will be the third time he has been 
elected to this position. 

DVB-AALAS held its last sesiion of 
the season at DelVal on April 11. The 
guest speaker at this meeting was Mr. 
Eric Hendrics, Executive Director of 
the Pennsylvania Society for the Pre- 
vention of Cruelty to Animals. The 
topic of Mr. Hendrics speech was "Open 
Up Your Labs." 

Mr. Hendrics said that organizations 
using animals for researc h need to open 
their labs for inspections if the industry 
is to survive. He notes the general 
public is increasingly concerned with 
the use of animals in research. Mr. 
Hendrics would like the laboratories to 
allow inspections by responsible organ- 
izations such as the PSPCA, that are 
concerned with the welfare of animals, 
but do not want to put the labs out of 
business. He said the public needs to 
know how the animals are being treated, 
and these inspections would be to the 
benefit of the company and the animals.

On April 5th, the Hillel club of 
Delaware Valley College held its first 
annual model sedar. A surprising 
number of faculty, administration, and 
students attended thil event. 

In Judaism, the sedar celebrates the 
exodus of the Jews from hundreds of 
years of slavery in Ea'Pt. Hillel advisor 
and DVC professor Mr. Tabachnick led 
the sedar, explaining the customs of 
passover, the Jews exodus from Egypt, 
and foods eaten during Passover. Those 
in attendance sampled a few common 
Passover foods such as matzah (un- 
leavened bread), marror (bitter herbs), 
and charoset (a mixture of chopped

covering the pros and cons of legal- 
ization of marijuana, was held on March 
27, 1990 in the student center music 
room and presented by students from 
the speech classes of Mrs. Roberts and 
Mrs. Koch. 

The students debating on the pro 
panel were Ed Mulroy, Chris Beaulieu, 
Lance Crabtree, and Ron Dami; the 
con panel included Jeff Fromeyer, 
Lucinda Wilke, Brett Right, and George 

There are several reasons for legal- 
izing marijuana such as, it would be 
easier to regulate the amount bought, 
amount sold, and price; also legalization 
would decrease use of hard drugs, 
decrease crime, and bring in tax dollars. 

Points made from the cons against 
legalization of marijuana included using 
marijuana causes permanent dama^ 
to the brain, it would make an already 
big problem to grow bigger, and it 
would make it easier for drug dealers to 
make money. For example, alcohol is 
legal and it is a problem today. As for 
bringing in tax dollars is it acceptable to 
make money off of people's problems? 

A panel of four judges evaluated the 
presentation of facts by each debator 
Mrs. Koch, Ms. Algeo, Mrs. Roberts, 
and Ms. Klaessig, and Dr. Hill tallied the 

Announcer for the pros was Debby

Dear Editors 

On Thursday, April 5, DelVal 
accepted the delivery of two 1990 Ford 
Club Wagon 15-passenger vans. These 
vans replace two vans which were 
condemned due to age and being in 
unrepairable condition. These additions 
now give DelVal four vans which are 
less than a year old. 

At DelVal, we pride ourselves on the 
fact that we know the value of machinery 
and the problems that are caused when 
they break down. Accordingly, everyone 
tries to maintain the equipment which 
they use. I hope this carries over to the 
drivers of our vans. 

Unfortunately, we cannot always 
control what happens. Every once in a 

while, accidents occur. Presently, one 
of our leased vans is being repaired 
after having a rather negative "inter- 
action" with a protruding fence post. 
Besides depriving the DelVal community 
of the use of this van, we are also 
required to rent one to replace it during 
its repair. 

We should all drive safely, sensibly 
and defensively in both our private 
vehicles and the college vehicles. In this 
way we may be able to improve our fleet 
and maintain it in an exemplary condition 
befitting of DelVal.

A Letter of Thanks 

On behalf of the American Cancer 
Society, Bucks County Unit, I wanted 
to take this oportunity to let you know 
how much we appreciated the recent 
efforts of Theta Chi Sigma members 
who raised over $900 for our organ- 

Under the leadership of John Thomas, 
the members got pledges for downed 
bowling pins with all proceeds to benefit 
the Cancer Society. They bowled at 
Doylestown Lanes on March 5th. 

The proceeds will be used to expand 
and enhance our ongoing programs of 
research, education and patient services 
here in Bucks County. 

The American Cancer Society com- 
mends the thoughtful action of your 
students in supporting our organization.

Carnival Cons, 
Part II 

by Karl L. Filachek, 

Director of Security 

This is part II of a short series on 
carnival con games and what you should 
be aware of. Keep in mind that we are 
not saying that all carnivals are 
dishonest, but we are simply providing 
information to warn the unwary of 
possible cheating in some games. Below 
are listed some of the games and what 
to be wary of. 

Game: Knock Downs 
Operation: Knock down bottles, bowling 
pins, etc., with balls, either by throwing 
or swinging. 

Rigging: Sometimes the bottles or pins 
are weighted; or they are set up 
differently for demonstration than they 
are for actual play. 
Game: Cover the Dot 
Operation: Dot on paper must be fully 
covered, either with discs or by shooting 
a rifle. 

/digging; Dots are too big for discs to 
cover them. Operator uses sleight of 
hand to cover dot when demonstrating. 
Gam^: Ring Toss 
Operafion; Toss a ring or hoop so that 
it falls over the merchandise and the 
base to win. 

/digging.' Hanging prizes prevent proper 
angle of approach. Large prize base is 
too large for hoop. 
Game: Nail Hammering 
Operation: Hammer nails into a thick 
board with one hit. 

Rigging.- Sometimes nails are soft or 
dull; occasionally a steel plate is im- 
bedded in board. 
Game: Ball Toss 

Operation: Toss balls into bushel basket. 
Rigging; Calling a foul; use lever to 
change angle of basket. 
Game: Fish or Duck Pond 
Operation: Pull a string or pick up a 
duck; win the prize that is listed. 
Rigging; No large prizes are listed; ducks 
with large prizes are magnetized so that 
when they enter the tunnel, they stick 
to sides or roof and do not come out; if 
string pull, operator palms the strings 
with the large prizes. 

The atmosphere of a carnival is a 
happy one. Enjoy yourself — but be on 
guard at the same time.

Why Rec^/cle? 

Recyc/ing saues energy, fhus reducing 
acid rain, global warming and air 

• Recycling aluminum uses 95 percent 
less energy than producing aluminum 
products from raw materials. 

• Recycling paper uses 60 percent less 
energy than manufacturing paper 
from virgin timber. 

• Recycling a glass jar saves enough 
energy to light a 100-watt light bulb 
for four hours. 

Recycling conserves valuable natural 

• 75,000 trees are used for the Sunday 
edition of the New York Times each 
week, yet only 30 percent of news- 
papers are recycled in the United 

• Recycling metals minimizes the need 
for mining new minerals and de- 
creases damage to wilderness. 

Recycling cuts down on landfill. 

• The average Am^ican throws away 
four pounds of garbage per day. 

• By 1994, half the cities in the U .S. will 
run out of landfill space. 

• By recycling it is possible to cut our 
waste stream by 80 percent. 

What You Can Do 

Purchase an consume according to the 
3 "R"s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. 

Reduce the amount of garbage you 
generate by purchasing products with 
minimal packaging (about half of all 
waste is packaging). 

• Purchase foods in bulk. 

• "Recycle" by purchasing products in 
recyclable containers, such as 
aluminum, glass, paper and card- 

• Avoid plastic and styrofoam products 
that are neither reusable nor re- 
cyclable, such as disposable diapers, 
lighters, razors, and plastic utensils. 

• Use white paper - it is easier to 
recycle than colored paper. 

• Bringyour own paper bags, or better 
yet, cloth bags, to the supermarket. 

• Use a coffee mug rather than styro- 
foam cups. 

Reuse is the most efficient form of 
recycling, requiring no new natural 
resources or energy. 

• Use products that are made to be 
used many times, such as cloth 
diapers, cloth napkins, towels and 
rags, sponges, dishes and silverware, 
rechargeable batteries, etc. 

• Use the blank back sides of paper to 
take notes and do scratch work. 

• Mend clothes and repair broken 

• Take care of belongings to help them 
last longer. 

• Look into purchasing used goods at 
second hand stores and junk yards 
to eliminate unnecessary production. 

Recycle as many materials as possible. 
Many communities have established 
programs to recycle aluminum, steel, 
glass, newspaper and cardboard. It is 
also possible to recycle magazines, 
colored paper, wood, oil, solvents and 
some plastics. 

• Support a bottle bill (including 
plastics) that establishesd a deposit 
on beverage containers. 

• Help establish and promote a curb- 
side recycling program. 

• Organize a recycling program at your 
school, office, apartment building, 
church, etc. 

• Recycle food scraps and yard trimm- 
ings by creating a compost pile. 
(Food wastes and yard debrs> make 
up about one-third of the waste 

How To Recycle 

• Separate cans, bottles, newspapers 
and white paper. 

Glass: Remove lids from bottles and 

jars and rinse out well. (Some 

recycling centers ask that you 

separate glass by color.) 

Cans: Remove labels and rinse well. 

(Most recycling centers ask that you 

separate aluminum from other 


Newspaper; Tie newspapers into 

bundles or put them in a paper bag. 

White paper should go into a separate 


• Contact your local or state recycling 
division to find out if your community 
has a curbside recycling program. If 
so, put out your recyclables the night 
before the scheduled pickup. If no 
curbside pickup exists, take your 
cans, bottles and papers to the 
nearest drop-off site. 

• Used motor oil and car batteries can 
often be recycled at service stations. 

Recycling doesn't work unless there are 
markets for the new products. Part of 
being a recycler is purchasing products 
made from recycled materials, such as 
recycled white office paper. When 
shopping, look for the recycling symbol 
(three arrows forming a circle), indicat- 
ing that the packaging was made from 
recycled materials. Check with 
companies you do business with to see 
if they use recycled products. If not, 
encourage them to do so.

Students Demand Answers 

Approximately 50 students gathered 
in Lasker Hall Lobby requesting to 
speak with President Rorer on Friday. 
April 27. 1990 about 3:00 p.m. 

The students feel they are the 
important ingredient that keeps the 
college alive, therefore they would 
appreciate having the administration 
give them some attention and answer 
some basic questions concerning DVC 
policies that affect them. 

One young lady stated "They don't 
have the courtesy to talk with us on our 
level. We don't want the president to 
get on a stage and talk at us or lecture. 
We need to talk face to face on common 
ground." - 

The issues that are troubling DVC 
students arc written as stated by the 
students — 

1 Why are there large amounts of 
money spent on some educational 
areas and small amounts spent in 
other areas? 

2 How much did Animal Sciences get 
for a new dairy? 

3 Why does agriculture get all the 
attention and Business gets no 

4 Why can't an equal amount be spent 
on Landscaping, Horticulture, 
Business, and the Greenhouses? 

5 Why did all the money go into the 
Equine Center — for how many 
students (37)? 

How many students do we have on 
campus, 956? 

The Equine Center is not being fully 
used after spending so much.

Financial Aid, Tuition Figures Aired 

Student facilities ar6 pathetic! We 
need a better weight room — also a 
weight room equipped for girls. 

A number of questions about next 
year's proposed tuition increase have 
been raised during the recent student 
protests on campus. In an effort to 
clear up some of the confusion and 
misinformation surrounding these issues. 
Ram Pages adviser Joe Ferry sat down 
with President Rorer to collect some 

According to the President, next 
year's operating budget, which goes 
into effect on July 1. 1990. is proposed 
at 517.016,310.' Of that total. 
S2. 135.000. or 12.5% of the entire 
budget, is listed as direct financial aid 
from the college to its students. This 
figure does not include state or federal 
grants or third-party college scholar- 

The financial aid figures break down 
this way: Campus Employment is pro- 
posed to go from S290.000 this year to 
5398,000 in 1990-91, an increase of 
5108,000 (37%). Work Study financial 
aid is proposed to increase from S20.000 
to $25,000 (25%). Grant-in-Aid funds 
are proposed to rise from $1,240,000 to 

31,712.000. an increase of $472,000 
(38%). The overall increase in student 
financial aid is proposed to go from 
SI. 550,000 to $2,135,000, an increase 
of 5585.000 for a total overall increase 
of 37.7%. 

In the proposed 1990-91 budget, 
tuition and fees are proposed to be 
increased from the current $7,775 to 
58.275. a rise of 5500 (6.4%). Room 
rates are proposed to increase either 
5100 or 5200. depending on the type 
of room chosen, to a total of either 
51,725 or 51,825. 

The college's meal plans are proposed 
to increase 5100 to $2,090 for the 
20-meal plan or $1,890 for the 16-meal 

The overall increase for a student 
choosing a more expensive room and the 
20-meal plan is $800 (7.0%) for a total 
cost of $12,190. 

President Rorer emphasized that all 
of these figures are preliminary in nature 
and are subject to review, discussion and 
action by the Board of Trustees. 


Since this is the last issue of the 
Ram Pages for the 1989 1990 school 
year, I would like to extend the 
thanks of the Ram Pages staff to all of 
you who contributed material to the 
paper. Also a special thanks to the 
Advisors and to Security for all of 
their help. 

As you probably know, by looking 
at the staff box, the Ram Pages is 
going to need help next semester. If 
you would be interested in helping 
with the Ram Pages, or if you have 
any ideas on how we can make the 
paper better, please drop a note in 
box 980, addressed to the Ram Pages. 
Thank you for your support. I hope 
we can look forward to your con 
tinued support in the future. 

Have a grest summer! See you in

I feel that our security staff has been 
treated with a lot of disrespect and 
unkindness. Many people on campus 
seem to feel that the security staff is 
interfering with their college social life. 
Almost all of the policies that security 
enforces were drawn up by the college 
and the state of PA, not the security 
force. If you are unhappy with a policy 
of the school or state, talk about it with 
a member of the administration. 

Probably the most unliked policy on 
campus is the one that deals with 
underage drinking. Let us not forget 
that this is a policy that is required by 
the state of Pennsylvania. The security 
staff did not draw up or implement this 
policy, so don't take Out your frustra- 
tions on the security staff when you get 
a fine or probation. Write a letter to 
your senator or congressman if you 
have something to say. Remember that 
we as students have to do our part by 

Dear Editors 

proving that we can enjoy a beer or two 
without abusing it. In the end, it will be 
up to us to show everyone that we can 
use alcohol responsibly. 

Another policy that seems to cause 
some anger is the one concerning the 
amount of time we have to load or 
unload our cars. If there is a policy that 
is causing undue problems, the security 
staff is more than willing to work with us 
in attempting to solve it. If you have a 
problem with meeting the time limit, 
talk to them and say you need some 
more time. 

One of the best things about DelVal 
is that the students can make a 
difference. If you want to see something 
changed on campus, just talk to an 
administrator about it. And let's not 
forget that the security staff is here to 
help us. They are a terrific bunch of 
people that deserve a lot more respect 
than they are given.

While the terms liberty and anarchy 
are often used interchangably, one must 
question the validity of this usage. 
Defining the two terms is an objective 
process; liberty is the freedom of action 
and thought; anarchy is the absence of 
government. Usage, however, is often 
marked by subjectivity. Through the 
analysis of the terms' implications, one 
can determine the relationship between 
libertarianism and anarchism. 

Intrinsic to libertarianism is the 
advocacy of free will; man's choices 
must not be constrained by external 
circumstances. Taken to an extreme, 
libertarianism justifies the existence of 
every social, economic, political, and 
religious system. Morality is designated 
as a variable, and the thoughts and 
actions of any individual or group are 
permissable, for there is no paradigm of 

Unlike libertarianism, anarchism 
opposes the existence of any binding 
system; all forms of government are 
viewed as oppressive and must be 

abolished. Morality is designated -« a 
constant, and the absence of authority 
must be maintained in order to allow for 
the expression of freedom of thought 
and action. Anarchism does not specify 
how this condition is to be met. and for 
this reason many discard the feasibility 
of anarchy. 

While libertarianism and anarchism 
appear to be diametrical, they both 
idealize uncompromised freedom. In 
practice, compromises are necessary, 
for individuals' freedoms often conflict. 
Perhaps civil libertarianism is the 
solution. Although this ideology calls 
for compromises, civil libertarianism 
essentially allows for freedom as long as 
it does not conflict with another's. The 
term civil implies the existence of a 
state; the political body, however must 
be extremely limited and tolerant of the 
thoughts and actions of its citizens. 
While civil libertariansim conflicts with 
radical libertarianism and anarchism, it 
provides a valid and practical plan for 
the maintenance of social liberties.

On April 27, Yoseph O. Elkana, a 
representative from the Israeli Ministry 
of Agricultural Affairs visited DelVal 
during its A-Day celebration. Mr. Elkana 
was given a tour of the college by 
members of the Hillel club. He was 
taken around the large animal facilities, 
horticulture buildings, and the lab animal 
science center. Mr. Elkana is planning 
to return to Delaware Valley College 
this fall, possibly to sign an agreement 
between DelVal and an Israeli university.

Lady Aggies Finish with 

Winning Season 

Straight STUDENTS 

third consecutive year, sixth-year head 
coach Gary Pento guided his Lady 
Aggies basketball team to a winning 
campaign, 15 12, and appearances in 
the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) 
and Eastern Collegiate Athletic con 
ference (EC AC) playoffs. The fifteen 
wins are the second most in the school's 
history, as the Green and Gold reached 
the ECAC South championship game 
for the second straight season. 

"We have a great nucleus returning 
for next year after all of the valuable 
experience these kids gained this 
season," said Pento. "With a club as 
young and as green as we were with 
three freshmen on the floor most of the 
time, it was growing year that was still 

DelVal reached the MAC playoffs, 
tying King's for second place with a 6 4 
mark in the NE section, but dropped a 
special playoff game to the Lady 
Monarchs 69-60. The club also earned a 
spot in the ECAC South Region Playoffs, 
defeating Ursinus (81-67) to reach the 
championship game, where they lost to 
host Frostburg State 81 55 to finish out 
the season. 

Leading the way for the Lady Aggies 
were seniors Laura Rotz (St. 
Hubert's/Philadelphia, PA) and Rhonda 
Hill (University City/Philadelphia, PA), 
who provided leadership and the bulk 
of the scoring load. 

Rotz, an All-American candidate at 
guard, was selected to the MAC 
Northeast Section All-Star team for the 
third straight year after leading the 
squad in scoring with a 17.6 point per 
game (ppg) average. She scored a DVC 
single-season record 474 points on the 
year to become the school's all-time 
leading scorer with 1,413 career 
markers. The Lady Aggie co-captain 
also paced the team with 52 three point 
field goals, 90 assists and 81 steals, 
while pulling down 4.7 rpg. Rotz became 
just the second Delaware Valley 
women's basketball player to top the 
1 ,000 point milestone, when she scored 
a career-high 29 points in an 83 71 win 
over Upsala. 

Hill finished up her fine career as the 
school's third all-time leading scorer 
with 940 points after averaging 13.8 ppg 
and 5.6 rpg. The 5foot-7 forward handed 
out 51 assists and led the squad with 20 

blocked shots. The DVC co-captain 
ripped the nets for a career high 26 
points in a 69-53 win at King's and 
topped the Green and Gold in scoring 
10 times. 

A trio of first year players in the DVC 
program added major contributions, as 
freshmen Pamela Ball (Council 
Rock/Richboro, PA) and Stephanie 
Armstrong (Overbrook Philadelphia, 
PA) teamed with sophomore Martina 
Richardson (Martin Luther King^'Phila- 
delphia, PA) to round out the Lady 
Aggies starting lineup late in the year. 

Ball started all twenty-seven contests 
on the year, leading the team in 
rebounding with a 10.4 rpg average. 
The 5-foot- 11 center averaged 7.7 ppg, 
scoring a career high 16 points in a 
narrow 62-61 win over FDU Madison. 
She led the squad in rebounding in 19 
outings, including a 16 rebound effort 
against Scranton. 

Armstrong, a 5-foot 5 guard, averaged 
4.0 ppg and handed out 75 assists in her 
rookie season with the Lady Aggies. 
She also pulled down 4.6 rpg and made 
60 steals. Richardson, a transfer from 
Philadelphia Community College, came 
on down the stretch to finish with a 4.5 
ppg scoring average, while yanking down 
5.4 rpg, including a career high 19 
rebounds in the win over King's. 

Sophomore forward Stephanie Mason 
(Bishop McDevitt/Philadelphia, PA) was 
also part of the starting lineup through 
the first sixteen games of the season, 
before missing the next nine contests 
with an ankle injury. She did average 
10.3 ppg and pulled down 6.9 rpg, while 
shooting a team-high 40.8''.. (71x174) 
from the floor, before returning for spot 
duty in the ECAC playoffs. 

Junior guard Carla Marinette 
(Easton/Easton, PA), along with 
sophomore swingman Terry Ward 
(Frankford/Phildelphia, PA) and 
freshman forward Dawn Papciak 
(Palisades/ Quakertown, PA) completed 
the young Lady Aggie roster. 

Marinetti scored at a 4.0 ppg clip, 
while handing out 1 7 assists and making 
19 steals. She scored a career-high 18 
points in an 85-54 loss to Scranton. 
Ward averaged 3.0 ppg and 3. 1 rpg and 
scored a career-high 12 markers in an 
80-71 win over Eastern, while Papciak 
contributed 1.4 ppg and 1.8 rpg in spot 
action for the Green and Gold.

Vol. XXV, No. 1 Thursday. September 13, 1990 

NOTICE; The opinions expressed in any individual article do not necessarily reflect the viewpoint of the paper or school. 

1990 Football Preview 

The Aggies of fourth-year head coach 
Dick Bedesem (11 18-1) are looking to 
rebound from a tough 3-7 season in 
1989, which saw the Green and Gold 
lose its final four games of the season. 

Leading the Delaware Valley wish- 
bone offense is senior quarterback Tim 
Ford (Neshaminy/Levittown). The Aggie 
co-captain was named a pre season All- 
America by Co//ege Football Preview 
throwing for 759 yards and seven 
touchdowns, while completing 52 of his 
134 pass attempts. On the ground, 
Ford compiled 484 yards on 2 12 carries 
and scored three touchdowns. 
The top six running backs from a year 
ago also return to bolster a rushing 
attack that established a school record 
for rushing yardage in a single-season 
with 2,422 yards. 

Heading the group are junior halfback 
Bill Nolan (Roxbury/Flanders, NJ) and 
sophomore halfback Darren Swift 
(Frankford/Philadelphia). Nolan was the 
squad's top rusher in 1989, carrying 71 
times for 542 yards and four touch- 
downs. His best day of the year came in 
a win over Wilkes, when he carried six 
times for 135 yards and scored three 
touchdowns, including a school record 
89-yards scoring jaunt. Swift led the 
green and Gold in scoring last season, 
putting the ball in the end zone nine 
times, while also running for 349 yards 
on 69 attempts. 

A pair of juniors, Scott Hallet 
(Bangor/Bangor) and Clayton Andrews 
(Lehighton/Lehighton) will also see their 
share of playing time after posting good 
numbers in 1989. Hallet was the team's 
third leading rusher with 401 yards on 
75 carries, while scoring five touch- 
downs. He also caught three passes for 
40 yards and another score. Meanwhile, 
Andrews accumulated 246 yards on 59 
carries and was the squad's third leading 
receiver with five catches for 86 yards 
and a touchdown. 

The fullback position will be held 
down by the duo of junior Jack 
Mulholland( Archbishop Wood/ Holland) 
and sophomore Bryan Smith 

(Easton/ Easton). Mulholland ground out 
276 yards on 60 carries a year ago, while 
Smith compiled 132 yards on 37 carries 
in his rookie season. 

Opening holes for the backs will be 
an offensive line led by senior tackle Joe 
Rozick (Pennsbury/Fairless Hills) and 
junior center Steve Hykes 
Both Hykes and Rozick were starters 
last season and will team with 
sophomore guards Kurtis Kress (O.J. 
Roberts/Spring City) and Joe Boyarski 
(Hazelton/Hazelton) and big junior 
tackle Steve Wagner (Souderton/- 

On defense, senior co-captain Tom 
Kellett (Shelton/Mt. Wolf) will lead the 
charge from his nose guard spot, after 
making 77 tackles and recording two 
sacks in 1989. Kellett will team with 
another returning starter at the one 
tackle spot in senior Travis Sherman 
(New Oxford/ Abbottstown). Sherman 
registered 51 stops and recovered a 
fumble last season. Rounding out the 
defensive front will be senior Ron Bane 
(Cardinal Brennan/Frackville), who 
moves from tight end to a defensive end 
position, Jim Betts (Ocean City/- 
Woodbine, NJ) and Bill Maynard 
(Panther Valley/Lansford). 

The starting linebackers are the 
imposing looking duo of sophomore in 
Mike Hirshmann (Archbishop Wood/- 
Warrington) and Darren Bethke 
(Neshaminy/Parkland). Hirshmann has 
a great freshman season, recording a 
team-high five sacks to go with 70 
tackles. Bethke, a 6-foot-4, 230 lb. 
transfer from East Stroudsburg, will 
take over the other inside spot in his 
first year with the Aggies. 

The secondary returns just one 
experienced starter in junior safety Dave 
Paino (Neshaminy/Langhorne). Paino 
had a big year in 1989, making 67 
tackles, breaking up 19 passes, inter- 
cepting one pass and causing six 
fumbles. Rounding out the starting

There are 3 main sources of college 
financial aid. Your school financial aid 
officer will help you find what govern- 
ment aid you are eligible for. 
Government aid is now only 29"(. of 
college financial aid. 

Second, each college has special 
endowments for its own students. These 
are listed in the back of the college 

Third, all students are eligible for 
not connected to a specific college and 
independent from eligibility for gov(>rn 
ment aid. However, there are thousands 
of different sources, and it is difficult to 
know what you are eligible for.

Graduate School Information Available 

Graduate School is an important 
consideration for many students. One 
of the student services offered by the 
Counseling Department is to provide 
information to aid in the selection of a 
school and to dispense applications for 
the various graduate school admission 

In our Counseling Center, which is 
located in Segal Hall, there are many 
publications to help you select a school. 
In addition, the Center houses a fairly 
extensive library of graduate school 
catalogues which are available for your 

The major examination used in 
graduate admissions is the Graduate 
Record Examination (GRE). The GRE 
consists of an aptitude test and advanced 
tests in twenty academic fields. The 
tests are given at locations throughout 
the country on specific dates throughout 
the year. These dates and locations as 
well as a wealth of information about 
the tests are contained in the GRE 
Information Bulletin which is available 
in the Counseling Center. 

This fall in conjunction with Barkan's 
Testing and Tutoring, the Counseling 

Center plans to run a GRE Prep course 
prior to the December 8th test date. 
The preparatory course is set up to run 
on Monday afternoons from 4-6 pm, 
beginning October 22nd. With a 
scheduled break for Thanksgiving on 
November 26th, the class will run on 
consecutive Mondays through 
December 3rd, just in time for excellent 
results to be produced at the December 
8th test.

Have Legs, Will Travel 

The DelVal men's and women's cross 
country teams started off the season 
with impressive performances at the 
Lebanon Valley Invitational on Saturday, 
September 8th. The women opened 
early over the 5,000 meter course. Top 
runner for DelVal was sophomore Marge 
Harris with a time of 21:31, finishing 52 
out of the 155 entrants. Freshman 
runners Sue Anne Sladak and Jenn 
Orlowsky finished with times of 23:07 
and 27:48 respectively. Showing marked 
improvement from one year ago, Christy 
Holeman, sophomore, bested her 
previous time by 2:52 with 1 24:29. The 
women finished as a non-counting team 
due to sickness, however the women's 
team hopes to have another winning 
season for DelVal's fall sport season. 

The major surprise occurred when 

DelVal's men's team finished 7th out of 
24 teams, surprising in the fact that they 
finished 20th out of 20 just a year ago. 
Art Ruediger led the Aggies with a 7th 
place finish out of 206 runners. Closely 
following Ruediger was freshman 
Charles Holiday with 15th place in 26:29. 
Rounding out the scoring five were 
Dave Klosinski (50th, 27:50), freshman 
Pete Oesen (91 , 29: 16). Other finishers 
were transfer Jeff Hamilton with a time 
of 31:16, Pete O'Donnell with a 32:21, a 
4:18 improvement over last year, 
Sophomore Brett Wright with a 34:40. 

Even though the season has started, 
anyone is still welcome to come and join 
as an exciting season begins to unfold.

Shepherd Under Stress 

Over thirty years ago a speaker 
addressed medical personnel at a con- 
ference on the correlation between 
stress and illness. To those in the 
audience who had been trained on the 
germ theory of disease, this novel 
presentation seemed far fetched. In the 
1980's and 1990's, however, we have 
witnessed the reality and frequency of 
that theory. 

Stress in our lives is caused by any 
factors. In a simple society the 
mechanism that pumps adrenalin into 
our blood may be called upon rather 
infrequently. During the Civil War such 
a physical change was called "soldier's 
heart." Later it was called"shell shock." 
Today we know it all too well as stress 
and experience the effects of it in our 
lives daily - - in homes, at work, or in the 
"hammer lanes of highways." So this 
"fight, or flight syndrome" lurks 
potentially everywhere. If we don't learn 
to fight or flee, we must learn to flow. 

Stressors affect people variously. The 
same wild beast that frightens the life 
of one person may be a very 
welcome sight to a hunter. The race car 
driver has mastered manuevers far 
better, perhaps, than someone who 
drives a car a few blocks to get gas and 

Students coming to college ex- 
perience adjustments, both positive and 
negative, which do act as stressors on 
the body's system. As of this writing, 
some may have already fled; others 
are fightins; still others will learn to 

Psalm 23, used for the meditation 
August 26th, showed how the shepherd 
David learned to cope with stress. The 
most stressful part of this psalm depicts 
a shepherd descending through a dark 
valley to get his sheep to water. In spite 
of all that lurks about in the darkness 
(called "the shadow of death", i.e. 
darkest shadow), he fears no evil, for he 
is reminded of the LORD's presence. 
After going to the quiet waters, he

from King Ahab and Queen Jezebel to 
the brook for refuge and rest. Today we

Although we often induce stress upon 
ourselves, we must learn helpful 
techniques to cope with or surmount 
stress. After promising to conduct a 
service of worship for freshmen on 
Sunday August 26th at 8:15 a.m., I 
realized that I also had another service 
to conduct a short time later that 
morning. The stress of driving from one 
to the other was evident. What is more, 
as I planned the program the previous 
Wednesday night at church, the tele- 
phone rang. A ringing telephone in the 
church dffice is a normal event. But it 
was at night, I was alone, and when I 
picked up the receiver and greeted the 
caller, whoever it was hung up. I felt 
uneasy, for I had been robbed in church 
in June. Was this a prank? Was someone 
staking me out? Should I alert the 
police? It did cause me some stress. We 
learn that the effects of stress are 
cumulative over time. Just as we think 
we are ^ver one event, another may 
strike. We must learn helpful techniques 
to cope positively. Medically speaking, 
exercise of some kind benefits us.

No Hunting on 

During hunting season we receive 
many requests for permission to hunt in 
the fields and woods of Delaware Valley 
College. We have declined these 
requests because our students are often 
in the fields taking field samples, or our 
workers are there maintaining the tields. 
We will decline all requests for the 
coming year. 

We will post "NO HUNTING" signs 
on the perimeter of our main campus. 
Fox Farm, Farm 4 and Farm 7. We ask 
your cooperation in this effort. If you 
see people hunting on our property, 
please notify Security at extension 2315. 

Our goal is to provide a safe environ- 
ment for study and work. Thank you for 
your fine cooperation.

Aggies start season 

0-1 with Tough Loss 

to Wagner 

The Aggies, 01, had a tough time 
in their first game of the new decade, 
as they saw Wagner, a nationally 
ranked team in the Division III polls, 
rack up 431 yards total offense, while 
holding the Green and Gold's offen- 
sive output to just 160 yards. 

"Wagner just beat us in every 
aspect of the ballgame," said DelVal 
fourth-year head coach Dick 
Bedesem(ll-19-1). "Our kids battled 
them and did what they could but 
they just overpowered us. They are a 
very good football team. 

"The key for our squad is that we 
have to regroup and relay to the kids 
that we played against one of the 
best Division III schools in the 
country. We will not see anyone any 
better than Wagner this season." 

The brightest spot of the afternoon 
for Delaware Valley was when junior 
halfback Scott Hallet (Bangor/- 
Bangor, PA) returned the Aggies 
first kickoff of the season 92 yards for 
a touchdown, after a Wagner score, 
to tie the game at 7-7. For the game, 
Hallet returned three kickoffs for 132 
yards, including his touchdown 

Offensively, the Green and Gold's 
vaunted wishbone running attack 
was held to 129 yards on 43 carries 
for the afternoon. Junior fullback 
Jack Mulholland (Archbishop 
Wood/Holland, PA) led the way with 
a team-high 34 yards on 8 carries and 
scored the lone offensive touchdown 
for the Aggies with a 6-yard run early 
in the fourth quarter. 

Senior quarterback Tim Ford 
(Neshaminy/Levittown, PA) rushed 
for 20 yards on 12 carries, while 
completing four of eight passes for 3 1 
yards, including three to senior split 
end Todd Nichols (Summit/Summit,

• The purpose of the contest is to 
encourage undergraduate and 
graduate students majoring in 
accounting at Pennsylvania colleges 
and universities to address, in writing, 
those issues which affect the 
accounting profession. 

• Awards of $1000, $600 and $400, 
respectively, are awarded for the 
three best manuscripts selected. The 
best manuscript will be published in 
the Penns\;lvama CPA Journa/ with 
other articles on the chosen theme. 

• Matching grants will be awarded to 
accounting societies which submit 
the winning manuscripts on behalf of 
individual students. 

• Topic — "Leveraged Buy Outs and 
Debt Restructuring" 

• Throughout the 1980s, corporate 
mergers and acquistitions were ex- 
tremely popular for various pro- 
ductive and egqcentric reasons. 
Often complex and innovative 
financing arrangements were utilized; 
usually involving large amounts of 
debt being substituted for equity. In 
many areas, the new capital structure 
would have 80% to 95% debt. 
Regardless of whether this "high 
leverage" proves to be a good or bad 
idea, the accounting profession is 
faced with complex reporting and 
financial advising problems. 

• Your manuscript should discuss a 
specific aspect of leveraged buy outs 
and debt restructuring. Possible 
topics might include: 

• Are present disclosure require- 
rr^ents sufficier)t to deal with the 
r^ew innovative financial instru- 

• Explain Luhy In a troubled debt 
situation, a creditor might grant 
concessions to a debtor. Explain 
the t\>pe of concessions that might 
be offered. 

• Describe the different forms of 
leveraged bu\;-outs and the unique 
risks of each. 

• Discuss the impact of "fatal" 
errors make in financial pro- 
jections in some of the "failed" 
leveraged bu\^-outs. 

• A 1,500 2,000 word manuscript is 
required, as well as a 50-75 word 
abstract. Both are to be typed 
double-spaced, 55 characters across. 

• Manuscripts are evaluated for 
content, method of presentation and 
writing style. The topic selected and 
the exposition of the author's thesis 
should be tailored to the word limits. 

• Manuscripts must include an Author 
Information Sheet with the student's 
name, permanent address, college 
or university and accounting pro- 
fessor's name. If the manuscript is 
submitted by an accounting society, 
please include the faculty advisor's 
signature. Individual student sub- 
missions are welcome. 

• Manuscripts must be submitted by 
January 31, 1991. For more infor- 
mation and an Author Information 
Sheet, contact the Pennsylvania

Library Offers New 

The Library is now a subscriber to 
the CD-Rom product, ACADEMIC 
INDEX. Located in the Periodicals 
Room, this index covers a wide variety 
of journals appropriate to the college 
curricula. The journals which the Library 
owns are flagged so that the user can 
tell immediately whether the citation is 
in the Library. In addition a printer is 
attached to the system to print out 

For a 3 month period, the Library is 
also sampling two other CD-ROM disks. 
Biological and Agricultural Index and 
Business Periodicals Index. Each data- 
base includes 8 years indexing. 

We invite all college personnel and 
students to familiarize themselves with 
these materials. 


DelVal's field hockey team has a new 
head coach, Linda Hiesher who is from 
Philadelphia. She is a graduate of 
Tennessee Tech, and has had five years 
coaching experience at Kings Christian 
school. Coach Hiesher "likes DelVal 
and the challenge that the job brings". 
Although the girls have lost their first 
two games they are playing much better 
than in previous years. Coach Hiesher 
feels that "the standard of taking one 
game at a time will evenutally pay of. 
We have the quality people to win, it is 
just a matter of getting a winning attitude 

The team is comprised of seven 
upperclassmen and six freshmen. The 
team has plenty of room for more 
players. If anyone is interested in playing 
this season or next fall please contact 
coach Hiesher at ext. 2358 or at the

President Rorer Resigns 

On Saturday, September 22, the Board 
of Trustees, during an information 
session, received several options for 
strengthening the College's overall 
financial position. These options pre 
sented by President Rorer, were based 
upon extensive planning reviews over 
the past several months, and involved 
whether the college should remain as a 
private institution or affiliate with the 
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 

During this meeting, President Rorer 
strongly recommended affiliation as one 
way to help the college progress. No 
decision or vote was reached by the 


DVC's annual homecoming parade 
will begin at Union and Broad Street, 
Doylestown, at 9:30 am on Saturday, 
October 6. 

This year's parade festivities revolve 
around the theme "20th Century 
Showcase" with each college club 
representing a different decade in the 
20th century. In addition, each club will 
have its nominee for homecoming queen 
represented in the parade. Later, at 
halftime during the football game, a 
homecoming queen will be announced. 

Also included in this year's parade, 
the Antique Buick Club will be displaying 
seven cars model years 1939-1965. 
George West, Dean of the business 
school will be driving his 1941 black 
Buick special sedan. West purchased 
his antique car in 1965 from a South 
Philadelphia owner. The car had been 
originally sold in Niew Hampshire in 
1941 and had been driven all over the 

Music for the parade will be provided 
by the Gerryville Hobo Band. The 
Central Bucks Ambulance Corp and 
both the Chalfont and Doylestown fire 
companies will also participate. 

The grand marshall for this year's 
parade will be Charlea Genople, the 
first woman to graduate from DelVal. 

Board. However, many trustees felt 
that in order to support the history and 
culture of the college, it was best to 
remain independent. 

President Rorer tendered his 
resignation, on September 24, but 
remains supportive to DelVal and its 
students. To help ease the transition, a 
search committee has been formed to 
make recommendations for an interim 
president, while a second search 
committee is in the process of gathering 
recommendations for a permanent 


Genople, a biology major, graduated in

Annual Bucks County Honey Show Set 

The Annual Bucks County Honey 
Show will be held on Thursday, 
October 1 1 , 1990. It will be held in the 
lobby of Mandell Science Building, 
and the judging of the show will begin 
at 7:00 p.m. Any Bucks County 
beekeeper may enter apiary products 
in the show, and membership in the 
Bucks County Beekeepers 
Association is not necessary. Show 
categories this year are: light, amber, 
and dark honey, comb honey, and a 
minimum of one pound of beeswax. 
All entries will be judged based on 
international standards, and all Bucks 
County beekeepers are strongly 
urged to enter their apiary products 
in the show. 

The entries will be judged by Dr. 
Bob Berthold, Delaware Valley 

College's beekeeping specialist, and 
he will be assisted by members of the 
College's Apiary (beekeeping) 
Society. Ribbons will be awarded to 
the first three highest scorers in each 
judging category, and an appro- 
priately engraved bowl or tray will be 
awarded to the beekeeper scoring 
the most points in the show. The 
awards are being sponsored by the 
Delaware Valley College Apiary 

At the same time, the entries from 
Montgomery County Beekeepers will 
also be judged, with their prizes 
being awarded at their Annual 
banquet later in the fall. Montgomery 
County beekeepers should see their 
monthly newsletter for directions. 

Graduate School??? 

By Dr. Robert Berthold, Jr. 

During one of our Annual Career 
Days, I had the opportunity of 
spending quite a bit of time with Dr. 
Roger Locandro, a Cook College 
(Agricultural branch of Rutgers 
University) dean. During this time, 
we spoke with a number of our 
students. I was suprised to find how 
many of them had no idea as to how 
to finance a graduate education. 

In the case of Liberal Arts majors 
-including those majoring in business 
and related fields - most students 
have to finance their own graduate 
educations. It is true, however, that 
many business graduates receive 
financial assistance from employers 
to help finance much or all of their 
graduate educations. 

Financing a graduate education is 
frequently a different matter for those 
students majoring in Agriculture and 
in many of the sciences. Many 
graduate school departments offer 
research assistantships and/or 
teaching assistantships to 
academically qualified students, with 
often a "B" average being enough to 
qualify. Presently, graduate 
assistance is averaging about 
$10,000.00 per year plus tuition being 
waived. All assistance is often tax 

Many of the students who Dr. 
Locandro and I Initially spoke with, 
said that they couldn't afford to go on 
to graduate school after the high 
costs involved with their under- 
graduate education. However, 
opportunities for financing graduate 
education do exist. If you are 
interested and you have the academic 
credentials, you really should con- 
sider graduate school. 

If you think that you might be 
interested in pursuing a graduate 
degree program, talk it over with 
your advisor, stop in at our Placement 
Office in Segal Hall, or if you like, 
make an appointment and come and 
discuss it with me. (Mandell 203, 
Extension 2285 or 2284.)

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





President Rorer, who favored the 
option of seeking an affiliation with 
Pennsylvania's State System of Higher 
Education, tendered his resignation on 
Monday, September 24. According to 
Dr. Mertz, "When a chief executive 
officer loses his main strategy, it's 
reasonable for him to seek opportunity 
elsewhere." President Rorer's resig- 
nation was effective on Friday, October 

Dr. Mertz explained that he and 
Russell Schuiz, Vice President of 
Operations, are working very closely 
with the Board of Trustees to continue 
the day-to day operations of the College. 
Meanwhile, the Board has appointed 
two search committees who are pre- 
sently working, respectively, on 
recommendations for an interim 
president and a permanent replacement. 
"Hopefully we will have a new president 
by next summer," said Dr. Mertz. This 
search committee consists of several 
members of the Board of Trustees, two 
faculty members. Dr. Hill and Dr. 
Barbara Muse, and Student Govern- 
ment President Ken Peterson. 

In a recent interview with Dr. John 
Mertz, Provost, Dr. Mertz explained 
the various options that had been 
considered by the College's Board of 
Trustees in evaluating DelVal's fiscal 

Dr. 'Mertz explained that last spring, 
the Board had hired an auditing firm to 
analyze the College's current needs. 
Based upon these findings, the Board of 
Trustees told the president to appoint 
several committees to investigate the 
options available to the College. One 
committee investigated the operations 
of the College and its capabilities. 
Another committee researched the 
environment in which the college works. 
The President himself investigated 
several possibilities involving affiliations 
with other institutions. 

These various committees submitted 
their proposals and both an affiliation 
opportunity and a plan for continued 
independence were presented to the 
Board on Saturday, September 22, at 
an informal meeting. It was at this time, 
during discussion, that a majority of 
Board members expressed their belief 
that it was best for the school to remain 

Henry Schmieder Aboretum 

Delaware Valley College's campus- 
wide Henry Schmieder Arboretum 
serves as a regional center for 
horticultural study, ecological landscape 
design and community outreach. To 

this end, the arboretum is working 
closely with the Central Bucks Chamber 

of Commerce and community civic and 
gardening groups in the development of 

a county wide beautification program 
called "Bucks Beautiful". The arboretum 
is serving as a catalyst and resource 
center for the program. Doug Kane and 

John Martin are serving on a newly 
formed executive committee which will 

help shape the future of Bucks Beautiful. 
As Bucks County's only major 
arboretum, it is only natural that DVC's 
Henry Schmieder Arboretum will play a 
major role in this ambitious program. 
Over $25,000 has already been raised 
from area business leaders to launch 
Bucks Beautiful. It is hoped that Bucks 
Beautiful will evolve into a true part- 
nership of business, government, civic 
groups, the community and educational 
institutions. It is hoped that this 
partnership will result in the creation of 
a means to support and reward com- 
munity beautification from the home- 
owner to corporations. 

DVC and FTD 

For 52 years FTD (Florists Transword 
Delivery Association) District 3-B has 
been presenting the Philadelphia Design 
School and Trade Fair. Today it has 
become one of the largest and most 
attended professional florist events of 
its kind in the mid-Atlantic region. This 
year's program entitled "Christmas: 
Past, Present and Future" was one of 
the most successful to date. Our DVC 
students have been an integral part of 
this event for years helping to make 
Past, Present and hopefully Future 
events even richer and more rewarding. 

DVC, its students and faculty, were 
everywhere at this year's School and 
Fair. Eight students: Diane Owen 
Garber, Linda Schempp, Jennifer 
Blisard, Patricia Buckman, Joanna 
McKenna, Michele Parks, Ann Kline 
and Angela Thigpen assisted the FTD 
design school panel for the 3 days of the 
event. It was great to hear the name 
DVC repeated over and over to the 
thousands of attendees by the design 
school's commentator. Nine students 
enrolled in our Advanced Floral Design 
course became competitors in the 
event's Christmas design contest. These 
students included: Patricia Buckman, 
Jeanette Kidd, Ann Kline, Janet Maurer, 
Angela Maziaka, Jason Minoff, William 
Myers, Marie Sabath, Tracey Tucker. 

One of the entries, a Decorative 
Christmas Door won a first place cash 
award for the student designers. This 
was a significant achievement con- 
sidering that our students were 
competing with dozens of professional 
florists and established florist shops. 
Our student designers were assisted on 
to their win by Steven Dalrymple, AIFD, 
class of 1981, who has joined the OH 
and ED faculty as an adjunct instructor. 

If this wasn't enough, two of our 
students, Linda Schempp and Daniel 
Bortz, won $ 1 ,000.00 FTD scholarships 
at the show — the largest amount 
awarded to any one school.

Mr. Edward O'Brien, 
Dr. Richard Ziemer 

Here we go again. Students are 
complaining about everything. And 
again, the students are not doing 
anything about it. It seems, to be a good 
student at DelVal, all one needs to be is 
a good complainer. For every three or 
four hundred students at DelVal, one, 
or maybe two will actually try to figure 
out what the cause of their complaint is. 
And maybe they will even go so far as to 
try to change things (and if they do, 
they'll most likely succeed). 

What I'm trying to say here is that the 
level of student participation in DelVal 
is pathetic. There is a group of no more 
than one-hundred students on this 
campus that really care about the 
college, and work their butts off to try to 
make it better for everyone. I bet that if 
someone wrote down the names of the 
President and Vice President of every 
club on campus, everyone on Student 
Government, Inter Club Council, and 
Student Activities Committee, & R.A.'s 
the same names would appear over and 
over and over. 

Complaining at the lunch table among 
friends just doesn't cut it. If students 
would just get more involved in the 
college, learn more about the way things 
operate, and not take rumors at face 
value, this place would be much more 
enjoyable for everyone. One bright spot 
is that communication between the 
administration and the student body 
should improve dramatically. The Public 
Relations department, under the new 
direction of Linda Koch, will drastically 
help to clear up the communications 

But again, it all comes down to how 
much the student body cares about 
their college. A new administration will 
not be able to sovle the problem of low 
school spirit and the strong lack of 
student participation. I strongly feel 
that the students hold the key to these 
two problems, and if I was asked what 
the college needs most right now, the 
answer would be strong school spirit 
and student participation.

It is that time of year again when the 
Theta Chi Sigma Brothers are looking 
for new people to get involved in their 
organization. This time of recruitment 
is called RUSH. Rush, will last all 
semester with scheduled events spread 
throughout. If anyone is interested or 
would like more information call Lester 
Struble - Rush Chairman at 340-1098. 

THETA CHI SIGMA is Delaware 
Valley's largest active fraternity. The 
brotherhood curently consists of 27 
active brothers. The men that make-up 
Theta Chi Sigma are some of Delaware 
Valley's leading students. The organ- 
izaiton includes 3 Resident Assistants, 1 
Student Government Officer, 1 Class 
President, 1 Class Treasurer, 2 President 
Diplomate, 1 Peer Counseler, 4 Football 
Players, 2 Soccer Players, 2 Track, 2 
Baseball Players, 2 Golfers, 6 Lacrosse 
players and many other club 

THETA CHI SIGMA has been at 
Delaware Valey College since the spring 
of 1988, at which time the 11 founding 
fathers started this organization. The 
fraternity has grown steadily since that 
time and is continuing to grow. Theta 
Chi Sigma is a local fraternity which is 
constantly awaiting the opportunity to 

become national. The founding fathers 
were assisted by the national fraternity 
Theta Chi in the establishment of a 
fraternity at DelVal. 

Theta Chi Sigma is one of the most 
active organizations on campus. The 
brothers have been sponsoring events 
at almost all campus activities. A 
homecoming pig roast, A-Day pizza 
and dunking booths, Pride-N-Polish day 
projects, sponsoring dances in the pub, 
and community car washes. The 
fraternity also has participated in many 
charity events and community projects. 
The men raised $1,000.00 for the 
American Cancer Society through a 
organized bowling tournament. The 
fraternity has also collected food for the 
needy at Thanksgiving and donated 
blood at most blood drives. 

Theta Chi Sigma not only promotes 
involvement in school and community 
events but in friendship and brother- 
hood. The brotherhood works together 
in numerous ways; Tutoring and study 
sessions, athletics, peer counseling and 
enjoying each other's friendship. 

Theta Chi Sigma is a college fraternity 
which is striving to become the 
strongest, active, and beneficial organ- 
ization to the campus and community.

New Era of 

In what may be the best thing to 
happen within the administration in the 
past few years, Linda Koch has been 
appointed the new Public Relations 
director at Delaware Valley College. 

Mrs. Koch, who has more then 15 
years experience in public relations, 
says that the office "..will most definitely 
take a more visible approach to public 
relations because I feel we need it here 
at the college. We need for the student 
and for the faculty and administration 
to have a better form of communication 
so that everybody knows what's 

. Along those lines, Mrs. Koch says 
that she would like to see the P.R. office 
take a more active role in the RAM- 
PAGES. She says that the school paper 
is "an important communication vehicle

for all the students." Mrs. Koch says 
that students really need to get more 
involved in the RAMPAGES. She feels 
as if it should be more of a social event 
while maintaining its responsibility. 

Mrs. Koch is very determined about 
the need for better commmunication at 
Delaware Valley College. She says 
"There should be a more effective 
dialogue between the administration 
and the student body. Only through 
effective dialogue can we find if we are 
meeting each others needs." 

"By having high visibility in this office," 
Mrs. Koch hopes, "maybe the students 
can convey some of their problems to 
me or through the school newspaper." 
However visible the P.R. office becomes, 
it will undoubtedly be a great benefit for 
the students, faculty, and administration

Field Hockey 

During the Thursday, September 27th 
game against Cabrini, Suzette Brought 
scored the first goal in the first period 
on a feed from Melody Seesaman. Then 
Brought assisted on an Amy Follweiler 
goal to make it 2-0 in the 2nd period. 
Trouble struck during the last 7 minutes 
of the game when a defensive player 
was injured and DelVal was forced to 
finish the game with only 10 players. 
Cabrini's Michelle Ballinghoff scored 
then again with less than 1: 15 to play to 
force overtime. Ballinghoff struck again 
with less then one minute to play in 
overtime to give Cabrini a 3-2 victory. 

Two days later DelVal was still forced 
to play with only 10 players due to 
injuries. However, this time the girls 
would not be defeated. Marlene Burns 
and Melody Seesaman scored during 
the 2nd period to give DelVal a 2-0 
victory. Lisa Monterio had 8 saves 
during the game. DelVal's Hockey team 
has a 2-5 record which has already tied 
the number of last season's victories.

Scholarship Competition 

NEAVS is expanding a nationwide 
effort to honor students with cash 
scholarships as part of an ongoing 
campaign to promote research 
modernization and animal rights. Over 
$5000 will be awarded to students for 
contributions in two areas: community 
activism and creative arts. 

One of America's oldest charities.

planet without being harmed or 
exploited and that they be permitted to 
live out their lives in ways appropriate 
to their species. 

Student Leadership Awards 

$3,000 in cash scholarships will be 
awarded to students who have made 
significant contributions to the animal 
rights movement in their communities. 
Nominations will be accepted for 
students in grades six through college 
who are engaged in activities which 
raise awareness about animal rights 
and/ or alleviate animal suffenng. 

Exc^mples of appropriate activities

AT&T Collegiate Investment Challense 

College students nationwide this fall 
will be testing their stock market 
investment skills as they compete to 
win the $25,000 top prize in the third 
annual AT&T Collegiate Investment 

The AT&T Collegiate Investment 
Challenge, managed by Wellesley, 
Mass., based Wall Street Games Inv., is 
a hands on educational game that 
recreates actual stock-market trading 
without actual financial risk to players. 

Herman Silverman Appointed Acting 

of Delaware Valley College 

The Executive Committee of the 
Board of Trustees of Delaware Valley 
College, has announced the appoint- 
ment of Herman Silverman as acting 
president of the college. 

Silverman, founder of Sylvan Pools, 
Doylestown, PA, has been a member of 
the College's Board of Trustees for six 
years. He is also an alumnus of the 
College. He will serve as acting pre 
sident, filling the position vacated by the 
September 24 resignation of William H. 
Rorer III. 

In addition to being a member of the 
College's Board, Silverman has been an 
active member of the business 
community, serving on the Board of the 
Bank and Trust Company of Old York 

Road, as President of the Board of the 
James A. Michener Arts Center, and 
on the Boards of the Central Bucks 
Chamber of Commerce, and the 
Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency. 

He is the recipient of the 1990 
Exemplar Award, presented by the 
Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce 
and has received the Chamber's

responsible for all the duties of the 
College president until a permanent 
replacement is appointed by the Board. 
A committee is now in the process of 
conducting a nationwide search for a 
permanent replacement. 

RAM PAGES to Offer New Write-in Columns 

The RAM PAGES will be starting two 
new write-in columns with the next 

The first, Dear Aggie, will give 
students the chance to ask personal 
questions without actually having to see 
someone face to face. Students can 
write in with their question about 
roommate problems, personal pro- 
blems, advice, etc. Responses to the 
Dear Aggie column will be answered 
by MR. FULCOLY. All letters must be 
signed, although names will be withheld 
upon request. Remember these letters 
will be held in the STRICTEST CON 

The second new column gives students 
the chance to write in with questions 
about anything dealing with Delaware 
Valley College. Questions could be 
about college policies, services offered 
by the college, who to talk to about 
something, etc. We will also accept 
questions about Pennsylvania, the 
country, the environment, etc. What- 
ever your question may be, write to us. 
As with the Dear Aggie column, it is 
the policy of the RAM PAGES that you 
must sign your letter, but the name will 
be withheld upon request. The answers 
to these questions will be researched by 
the RAM PAGES staff. Send to RAM 
PAGES BOX 9177. 

The objective is to compile the most 
profitable stock portfolio by the end of 
the four-month competition. Students 
can draw information from any source 
available to them - newspapers, business 
journals, their professors or a "hot tip " 
By keeping abreast of the news, the 
students learn about various industries 
and business trends in America. 

This year's competition, with more 
than $200,000 in cash and merchandise 
prizes, is expected to outdraw the 
second AT&T Collegiate Investment 
Challenge, which last fall attracted 
15,000 student participants representing 
every state. 

Students can call toll-free 1-800-545- 
1990 to register and receive competition 
rules and materials needed to parti- 
cipate. The registration fee is $49.95 for 
college students. Deadline for registering 
is October 27. The AT&T Collegiate 
Investment Challenge begins Nov. 1. 

The top 10 collegiate finishers will 
receive cash scholarship awards. Each 
winner and his or her guest also will be 
flown to the Bahamas for a week's 

Wall Street Games, Inc., was created 
three years ago by Tim DeMello, 31, a 
former stockbroker from Boston, who 
realized there was no realistic way for 
people to go through the trial-and-error 
phase of learning the stock market in a 
way that simulates the financial risks 

DeMello's creation, popular in homes 
and offices as well as on college 
campuses, is a financial success story. 
But DeMello is equally proud of the 
game's educational value and points 
out that college professors have been 
using the AT&T Collegiate Investment 
Challenge as a classroom tool.

Dear Editors 

I would like to take this opportunity 
to thank everyone who helped make 
Homecoming 1990 a success. 1 would 
especially like to thank Adam Kaplan 
for his efforts as Co-Chairman. Without 
his help and dedication this event 
wouldn't have been what it was. I would 
also like to offer special thanks to Linda 
Schempp. Although Linda is not a 
member of ICC she devoted quite a bit 
of her time to help with homecoming. 
Other thank yous go out to: Jeff Brown, 
Craig Higgs, Brendon Caywood, Ken 
Peterson, David Young, Shaun Foard, 
and Mr. Schulz. Besides these people 
there are two other groups of people 
which contributed extensively to this 
event: the Cheerleader^ and the Clubs, 
The DVC Cheerleaders put in many 
hours working on Homecoming, and 
they deserve thanks for both their time 
and their ideas. Finally, I would like to 
thank all the clubs that participated in 
this event. You really showed your 
pride and spirit. 


Jim Wabals, 

Homecoming Co-Chairman 

Vending Machines 

For the convenience of the College, 
Have A Vend installed new electronic 
vending machines throughout the 
campus last year. To justify the expense 
of the machines and the cost to maintain 
fresh inventory, each machine must do 
a minimum dollar volume. The buildings 
with low volume are Allman, Mandell, 
Cooke, Ulman, and the Greenhouse. 
Have A Vend will wait until December 
to see if volume increases this year. We 
will only be able to keep machines 
where the volume justifies the expense. 


The October 4th edition of the 
Rampages ran an article "Honey 
Extraction" that stated to get to the Bee 
House to follow the trail through the 
woods behind Berkowitz Hall. The 
Security Department brought to our 
attention that crossing the tracks at any 
point, but especially behind Berkowitz, 
is dangerous. Please use the underpass 
when you need to get to one of the 

DVC-1 Replys 

Thank you for your call, the message 
on the DVC 1 answering machine 
will be changed. 

Thank you for call about the tardiness 
of the final exam schedule. The 
Registers Office will try to have the 
schedule out by November 10 so 
those of you who need to, can make 
your traveling arrangements. 
Thank you for your call informing us 
that the TV cable was out in Wilson. 
It has since been replaced. 
Thank you for alerting us to the fact 
that it is too hot in Berkowitz. Our 
plant engineer has since contracted 
with a local heating company who 
will very soon install zone heating 
controls to make it more comfortable. 
There will now be pickles at the salad 
bar every day. Thank you for your

screen (rm 24) in Wilson. They were 
fixed the same day. 
Thank you for the call alerting us to 
the lack of hot water in Goldman. 
The circuit breaker was reset and 
hot water was available later that 

Thank you for alerting us to the bug 
problem in Room 207 (Goldman?) 
The exterminator was called. 
Thanks for all of your supportive 
calls about homecoming weekend. 
Your enthusiam is appreciated. 
Sorry that the main gate is open once 
again, but there have been many 
demands that it be opened during 
daylight hours. We'll give it a try. 

Administration Reps 
Visit Dorms 

Last week, several representatives 
from the administration visited campus 
dorm lounges to speak with the students. 
The purpose of these informal visits 
was to inform the students of exactly 
what happened with the resignation of 
President Rorer a few weeks ago. They 
hosted questions on a wide range of 
topics, a few of which included selection 
of the permanent president, admission 
policies, the direction the college is 
heading, etc. All students are en- 
couraged to send reactions to these 
visits to RAM PAGES BOX 917. For a 
response to be printed, you must sign 
the response, although the name will be 
witheld upon request. 

Talking About Fitness 

by Judy Peltz 

Today's fitness topic is the neglected 
practice of stretching. This is the part of 
a fitness program that most people 
conveniently skip because it takes time 
and they want to get to the meat of their 
workout, because it's boring, because 
they just don't see the importance of 
stretching, and stretching feels awkward 
to them anyway. If you're guilty of 
skipping the warm-up/stretching portion 
of your workout you'd better read this 

"Well, why should I stretch?" you 
ask. Take a look at this list: 

• To maintain and improve flexibility 

• To avoid injury 

• To adequately warm up and prepare 
the muscles for workout so you are 
able to perform or lift at your 
maximum effort 

• To reduce soreness and speed 

• To increase your body awareness 

• To aid you in muscular development 

• To increase range of motion which 
increases your ability to do work and 
leads to greater strength gains 

• To allow for more fluid and 
coordinated motion in normal every- 
day life as well as your sport 

If you haven't been taking time to 
warm-up and stretch out before working 
out you had better get into a routine. 

Here's How: 

1 Warm-up 5 10 min. with some form 
of light aerobic work: jumping rope, 
jogging, cycling, etc. This warms the 
muscle, elevates your heart rate, 
increases circulation and prepares 
your body for what's to come. 

2 After warming-up it's time to begin 
stretching, develop a routine that 
encompasses all major muscle 
groups. Find a stretching movement 
for each muscle group.

3 Never force a stretch or bounce 
while holding a stretch. Move into a 
comfortable position where you begin 
to feel a slight tension and hold for 
10-30 sec. Release and repeat the 

4 Breathe naturally. 

5 Try to do your stretching in a relaxing 

6 Become aware of your body and it's 
posture while going through your 
routine. Be careful of your back 
positioning — don't slouch. Establish 
what stretches involve which muscles 

— learn your anatomy. Becoming 
familiar with how your body moves 
and what muscle groups are most 
important to your sport. 

7 Perform only safe stretches. Some 
no-no stretches include: 

— Full neck rotations/circles 

— straight leg seated toe touch 

— Yoga plow 

— Hurdler stretch with the knee 
cocked back 

Most of these exercises are unsafe 
because they place your joints in 
precarious positions — opt for safer 

8 In addition to your warm-up 
stretching don't forget to stretch at 
the end of your workouts. Stretching 
in between won't hurt either, 
especially if you're lifting heavy 

Stay tuned for a stretching routine 
that you can follow in the next issue of 
Ram Pages. In the meantime, an 
excellent diagrammed reference on 
stretching is Stretching by Bob 
Anderson. Shelter Publications, Bolinas, 
California, 1980. Take care and see you 
next issue.

"The AT&T Collegiate Investment

graduation as they begin careers," 
DeMello said. 

AT&T's college market manager,

aspect as a reason AT&T is title sponsor 
of the AT&T Collegiate Investment 
Challenge for the third year.

"College students, along with being 
good AT&T long distance customers, 
are the decision makers of tomorrow," 
Pugliese said. "We're pleased these 
students will associate AT&T with an 
experience from their college lives that 
is educational and enjoyable." 

The third annual AT&T Collegiate 
Investment Challenge begins when the 
stock market opens for trading on the 
morning of Nov. 1. Starting with a 
fictional $500,000 brokerage account 
and an official stock guide, students will 
buy and sell shares of stock via toll free 
AT&T 800 Service calls to "brokers" at 
Wall Street Games. 

The trading simulates the real world 
because Wall Street Games uses a 
computerized stock quotation network 
that receives up to-the-minute prices 
via satellite. All trading is done during 
actual stock market hours. 

The competition ends when the stock 
market closes at 4 p.m. Eastern time 
Feb. 28. 

An instruction booklet for players 
explains such strategies as "buying on 
margin" and "selling short." Each month, 
the college students will receive personal 
account statements. Wall Street Games 
also ranks students by campus and by 
state, so students can check how we!! 
they're doing against other players each 
month. The top 250 students nationally 
each month will receive prizes from 
Champion USA. 

Last year's top finisher, Doris Anne 
Wart, increased her stock portfolio 
from $500,000 to a closing account 
value of $1,248,559. Wart graduated 
from Lousiana State University in 
Shreveport last spring, the $25,000 she 
won helped pay her costs for law school 
at Rutgers University. 

Of last year's 15,000 collegiate 
participants, 2 became "millionaires," 
and only 4 went broke. 

Colleges with at least 50 students 
participating are also ranked against 
each other. The 10 colleges with the 
highest average student protfolios will 
receive plaques. Tennessee State 
University won top honors in the second 
AT&T Collegiate Investment Challenge. 

College professors also can play the 
AT&T Collegiate Investment Challenge 
in a separate category. The registration 
fee for professors is $39.95. Last year's 
top professor was Louis Miller of 
Tennessee State University. This year's 
top professor will win a trip for two to 
the Bahamas. 

Other sponsors of the third annual 
AT&T Collegiate Investment Challenge 
are USA Today, the Bahamas Ministry 
of Tourism and Champion USA.

Ram Pages to Stop the Presses 

This issue of the Ram Pages is the 
final issue of this semester. Due to 
changes in advisors and staff, and the 
desire to make the newspaper more 
enjoyable and timely reading, our staff 
has elected to stop printing the paper 
for the remainder of the semester and 
to dedicate our free time to finding 
solutions to the problems now facing 
the Ram Pages. 

As with any other club on campus, 
the Ram Pages needs the support of the 
faculty, administration, and students in 
order to become an integral part of the 
campus community. Therefore we 
would like, first of all, your suggestions 
on what you would like to see in the 
school paper, how often you would like 
it to be published (weekly, monthly, 
etc.), and what day of the week you 
would like it to come out on, so that we 
can serve you better, and second we 
would like your understanding as to 

why we stopped printing the paper this 
semester and your support of our 
restructuring plans. 

The Ram Pages will be returning in 
January with an all new layout, more 
pages, special columns, lots of pictures 
and a new circulation schedule. Among 
the topics to be featured are, sports, 
club news. Dear Aggie, Talking about 
Fitness, and the student of the month. 
Also the Ram Pages will be printed on 
recyclable newsprint so that environ- 
mentally concerned students can recycle 
their Ram Pages. 

If you have any ideas or suggestions 
that will aid in the future of the Ram 
Pages, please drop a note in Box 917 
and remember to look for the all new 
Ram Pages to be printed in January. 
Enjoy the rest of the semester, see you 
in the spring

George F. West Appointed Deputy to 
Acting President 

George F. West, Delaware Valley 
College's Associate Dean of Business, 
has been appointed Deputy to the Acting 
President, Herman Silverman. 

In this new capacity, West will be 
responsible for assisting the President 
in the day-to-day operations of the 
College and representing the President 
as required. 

West, who has been associated with 
the College since 1%9, as a professor of 
business administration, department 
chairman, and associate dean, has also 

been an active member of the business 
community. He has served as a vice- 
president and member of The Board of 
Directors of the Central Bucks County 
Chamber of Commerce and was 
instrumental in bringing the Chamber's 
Annual Expo onto the Dealware Valley 
College campus. 

West is a state mediator in the field of 
labor relations and has acted as a 
management consultant to several firms 
in the region. 

Acting President Herman Silverman holds 

Student Forum 

DVC's acting President Herman 
Silverman held a meeting with students 
on October 17 at 11:20 a.m. in the 
James Work Gym. President Silverman 
used this meeting to introduce himself 
to the students and to give them some 

background about himself. He also 

outlined his plans for the college while 
he is in office and tried to answer any 

questions the students had. Another 
meeting is planned for next month. 

Dean Craig Hill 

Many of us are familiar with that old 
adage, "Don't believe anything you hear 
and half of what you see". This is 
particularly true of an event that 
happened two weeks ago involving our 
Dean of Academic Affairs, Craig Hill. 

iYes, it is true that while Dean Hill was 
sitting and having lunch in our Pub that 
two of Doylestown's finest, accompanied 
by DelVal security arrested, handcirffad, 
and carted away our Dean in a police 
car. Your eyes were not deceiving you!! 

However, what most of us did not 
know, including Craig Hill, was that this 
was part of a planned fundraising event, 
sponsored by the March of Dimes caUed 
the "Jail and Bail Program". 

This program, which is part of an 
annual fundraising event for the well- 
known charity, involves the arrest of a 
community member who is then placed 
in a special holding cell with pledge 
cards, a pencil and a telephone. The 
arrested individual, in this case Dean 
Hill, then calls all friends and associates 
and asks them to post money for bail. 
All money raised is given as a donation 
to the March of Dimes. 

Dr. Hill was able to raise over $400. in 
his two hours of incarceration, and then 
was released and returned to our college 

According to Dr. Hill, this was a real 
experience. It was not until the charges 
against him were made, that he realized 
that he was this year's victim. However, 
it was not a total surprise to him, since 
he was instrumental in picking last 
year's prisoner. I guess as another old 
adage says, "The chickens come home 
to roost". 

Join a group in which you can make 
an immediate difference and derive 
instant satisfaction: JOIN DVC's Band 
or Chorale. 

Gregory Grimes New 
Band Director at DVC 

Gregory L. Grimes has been chosen 
to be the new band director at Delaware 
Valley College. He received his Bachelor 
of Music Degree in Trumpet Per 
formance from Wheaton College in 
Whcaton Illinois and his Master of Music 
Degree in Trumpet Performance from

A Letter of Thanks 

I would like to say thanks to the class 
of 1991 for nominating me for Home 
coming Queen. It was an honor for me 
to represent all of you. On Monday 
after homecoming weekend, I received 
a dozen of champagne roses from our 
class and 1 would like to thank everyone 
for them. A special thanks to all of my 
friends because without all of you it 
would not have been meaningful. 

Thanks Roomdogs

In Search Of... 

There is an outspoken student at 
DelVal, whom I'll refer to as "Gutless", 
that SEEMS to care about the institution, 
and SEEMS to want to try to help it 
along. Unfortunately, Gutless has a 
mixed up sense of reality. When Gutless 
sees something that is not to his or her 
liking, little five sentence-computer 
printed schpeles appear taped up in 
dorm bathrooms and bulletin boards 
throughout campus. Whatever the 
intent of these message, they're not 
working very well. 

Gutless, why don't you sign your 
name to these "announcements'? Are 
you afraid of something? Someone 
finding out who you are and wondering 
what kind of a fool does things this way? 
It is not like your name in unknown 
throughout the administration and board 
of trustees. Are you still remembering 
your ill-conceived and pathetically 

In Memory off 
Christopher Truskey 

Chris Truskey enrolled here at 
Delaware Valley College this fall as a 
freshman. His major was Biology, 
he was a member of the Cross Country 
Team,and he planned to wrestle. Due to 
personal reasons, he withdrew from 
DVC shortly after arriving. He was 
killed when the car he was driving was 
broadsided by a truck. If he hadn't 
found it necessary to leave DelVal 
College, he would probably be alive 

planned "protest" of not to long ago? 

I would like to offer a chalknge to 
you, Gutless. First, in your next round 
of "announcements", why don't you 
sign your name to each one, and why 
don't you provide your sources. Second, 
if you are going to continue to issue 
your little remarks, why not do so with 
responsibility. If the message is going to 
be heard by the people that I feel you 
are ultimately targeting, that is the 
administration, you need to have some 
credibility. And the way I see it, credibilty 
and responsibility go hand in hand. 

As an involved upperclassman, you 
are in the position of being a role-model. 
If you are sincere about wanting to help 
improve DelVal, why don't you start 
doing things in a profesional manner, 
and set a proper example. Don't show 
them the way not to do things.

Operation Desert Shield.... 

As everyone is aware of, the invasion 
of Kuwait by Iraq has prompted the 
United States and a number of other 
foreign countries to deploy troops in 
the area. Captain Mike Jaskolka, A 
DelVal Grad who majored in Chemistry, 
ran cross country, was an RA, was an 
Apiary Society member, as well as 
being a member of student government, 
is currently stationed in Saudi Arabia as 
captain of an attack helicopter. 

I have been in touch with both Mike 
and his wife, who was also a DelVal 
grad, and they both are doing as well as 
can be expected under the circum- 

stances. His wife, Marion, mentioned 
that we have many troops stationed in 
Saudi Arabia that have no family or 
friends back home, and hence at mail 
call time, they receive no mail. If you 
would like to "adopt" a service person 
you can do so by writing: 
U.S. Service Member 
Operation Desert Shield 
FPO, N.Y., N.Y. 09866-0006 
If you don't know what to write, tell 
them a little bit about yourself and 
about DelVal, as well as tellingthemthat 
we are thinking aboutthem and strongly 
behind them.

DVC Cheerleaders 

by Lisa Melveney 

The Delaware Valley College 
Cheerleaders are looking for a few good 
men! We are interested in athletic, 
energetic men to cheer along with us 
and assist with mounts and stunts. Sign 
ups for try-outs for the basektball season 
are also available. 

This year we would like to welcome 
five new cheerleaders to the squad. 
They are Gina Sandone, a freshmen 
Business Major; Colleen Jones, a 
sophomore transfer student majoring 
in Small Animal Science; Stephanie 
Beach, a freshmen Food Science Major; 
Tiffany Olson, a freshman Equine Major; 
and Colleen Gebhardt, a sophomore 
Equine Major. 

Returning cheerleaders from the 
sophomore class are Annemarie 
Frederick (co-captain), a Business 
Major, and Lisa Melveney, an Animal 
Science Major. Returning juniors are 
Jill Bachman, a Biology Major; Catherine 
Duffey, a Large Animal Science Major; 
and Joanna McKenna, who is an O.H. 
Floraculture Major. The only returning 
senior is Jill Brubaker, a Business Major. 
Needless to say, we are glad to see 
everyone back this year. 

Some things that you may notice that 
are different this year are the new 
uniforms. They are a refreshing change 
for both ourselves and the crowd. Also 
the cheerleaders have a new coach. 
Holly, who works with them to produce 
the great results that are seen on the 
field. As far as fund raisers go, we have 
only had one so far this year, the car 
wash. Even though this was a great 
success, we need your help and ideas to 
raise money. 

Any suggestions, comments, or sign 
ups for try-outs may be submitted to 
either Annemarie Frederick, Berkowitz 
114, or Jill Brubaker, Berkowitz 121. 

The squad performed two off-campus 
events. A demo for the Chamber of 
Commerce, and marching as the lead 
for the homecoming parade.

President Silverman Meets with DVC Staff 

by James Masculi 

The meeting took place Oct. 17 at 
9:00 am in the All Purpose Room of the 
Student Center. The speaker was 
Herman Silverman. 

The purpose of the meeting was for 
Herman Silverman (the acting president 
of DVC) to met the staff. He is not being 
paid for this position. Mr. Silverman 
graduated from DVC 50 years ago in 
1940. DVC made him what he is today 
— it taught him how to work hard and 
to have a good relationship with his 
comrades. The school was smaller back 
then and if you weren't a nice person, 
everybody knew it. 

After DVC, Mr. Silverman went into 
the army. Next, he started a landscape 
business. Sylvan Landscape, which he 
later built into Sylvan Pools, the largest 
swimming pool company in the world. 

He's been active in the Pennsylvania 
Housing Finance Agency, (for the 
production of low cost housing). Central 
Bucks Chamber of Commerce, 
President of the Board of the James A. 
Michener Arts Center. Mr. Silverman 
has been on the DVC Board for 6 years. 

Mr. Silverman gave sincere appre- 
ciation to the DVC Maintenance Staff 

for keeping the campus so clean, inside 
and out. He said "after all that is what it 
is all about, doing your job well, whether 
it's cleaning up the place or working the 
accounting department." He is proud 
to be here. He has four wonderful 
daughters and 6 grandchildren. 

He said DVC is a very important part 
of the eastern U.S. A lot of people think 
DVC is fabulous. We can succeed with 
teamwork — one person ftin't think 
he's more important than anyone else. 

For the short time that he is here one 
of Mr. Silverman's goals is to raise the 
endowment. To turn 80 million of assets 
into cash. Possibilities he suggested are 
hotels, convention centers and even a 
golf course and then offer hotel or golf 
course management programs for 
students. He would like to make this 
school better financially. He introduced 
George West as his deputy, calling him 
"A presidential looking guy." 

Mr. Silverman wants to keep DVC a 
healthy school. He doesn't want to 
make any big changes. He thinks it is 
well run with many good staff members 
working together. 

Bucks County Honey Show Scheduled 

The Annual Bucks County Honey 
Show will be held on Thursday, 
November 8, 1990 starting at 7:00 P.M. 
The show is being sponsored by The 
Bucks County Bee Association in 
conjunction with Delaware Valley 
College and the College's Beekeeping 
Club. The meeting will be held in the 
Delaware Valley College Bee House. If 
you are not sure of the location of the 
Bee House, stop at the Security office 
on your way in for directions. The 
competition is open to anyone keeping 
honey bees in Bucks County, Pa. All 
entries must be produced by the entrant 
within Bucks County. Judging 
categories will include a number of 
classes of liquid honey, with three one 
pound unlabeled queen line jars being 
required. A comb honey category will 

also be judged with three section combs 
of honey being required. Beeswax will 
also be judged, with the entry being 
minimum of one pound. There will be 
ribbons for the first three finishers in 
each category, and there will be a grand 
prize for the beekeeper scoring the 
most points in the show. 

The judge for the show will be Dr. 
Bob Berthold, Delaware Valley College's 
beekeeping specialist and he will be 
assisted by the members of the Delaware 
Valley College Beekeeping Club. Honey 
is judged on the criteria that would 
make it an prime consumer product. 
Including in the judging is the floral 
source of the honey, its freedom from 
contaminants, its moisture content, its 
freedom from crystals, and its market

Aggies Looking For Third Straight Road Win At Moravian 

out on a four game road trip with a 14 
record, the Delaware Valley College 
football team could have folded their 
tents and called it a season. However, 
the Aggies have started out the trip with 
two straight impressive victories and 
will look to make it three in a row on 
Saturday, October 27th when they travel 
to Moravian College for a Middle Atlantic 
Conference (MAC) contest. Kickoff 
from Steel Field in Bethlehem is set for 
1:30 p.m. 

DelVal rallied from a 14-7 halftime 
deficit to post a 34-14 non-conference 
victory over Wesley College last 
weekend to improve its mark to 3-4 
overall, while remaining2-3 in the MAC. 
The Green and Gold have also posted 
wins over Albright (35-28) and Wilkes 
(49-28) to go with losses to nationally 
ranked Wagner (34-13), Juniata (33-10), 
Lycoming (33-21) and Susquehanna 

"I had to be happy for a number of 
reasons," said fourth-year Delaware 
Valley coach Dick Bedesem ( 14-22-1 ) of 
his squad's win over Wesley. "First it 
was a little bit of a payback for last 
year's 21-14 loss to them, so this was a 
sweet revenge type thing. 

"Secondly and the thing that I was 
most pleased with was the poise of our 
entire program. Nobody panicked being 
down at halftime and the kids came 
back out and got the job done in the 
second half. Our coaches also did a 

fantastic job of not getting away from 
the game plan and just keeping cool and 
sticking with what we started with." 

Senior quarterback Tim Ford 
(Neshaminy/Levittown, PA) had 
another outstanding afternoon running 
the wishbone offense. The Aggie co 
captain carried 15 times for a game-high 
83 yards, including a 37-yard scoring 
run midway through the first quarter. 
For the season, he has rushed for a 
team-high 353 yards on 107 carries with 
a team leading six touchdowns and 32 

The Aggies fullback posse of junior 
Jack Mulholland (Archbishop 
Wood/Holland, PA) and sophomore 
Bryan Sith (Easton/Easton, PA) again 
came through with big games. 

Both players carried five times for 57 
yards, with Mulhojland scoring two 
touchdowns on runs of 2 and 36 yards 
and Smith tacking on an insurance 
score with a 32-yards scoring jaunt 
early in the fourth quarter. Mulholland's 
first touchdown capped a seven-play, 
65 yard drive and proved to be the 
game winner with 9:53 left in the third 

Junior halfbacks Bill Nolan 
(Roxbury/Flanders, NJ) and Clayton 
Andrews (Lehighton/Lehighton, PA) 
also added 53 and 44 yards on the 
ground respectively as DelVal piled up 
319 yards rushing on the afternoon. 

Junior tackle Steve Wagner 
(Souderton/Lansdale, PA) was named 

Junior fullback Jack Mulholland (#33) has run for 159 yards and three touchdowns in the Aggies last two 

the Doylestown Moose Player of the 
Week for his efforts on Saturday. The 
rest of the offensive line, junior center 
Steve Hykes (Greencastle Antrim/- 
Greencastle, PA), sophomore tackle 
Brian Kreider (C.B. East/Plumsteadville, 
PA) and sophomore guards Joe 
Boyarski (Hazelton/Hazelton, PA) and 
Neil Stamy (Cumberland/Mechanics- 
burg, PA), have Delaware Valley on a 
pace to set a new single season rushing 

Junior Scott Hallet (Bangor/Bangor, 
PA) added his name to the Delaware 
Valley College record books on 
Saturday, when he returned a kickoff 
34 yards with 6:27 left in the first 
quarter. That return gave Hallet 416 
kickoff return yards on 18 returns for 
the season, breaking the old mark of 
406 yards set a year ago by 1990 grad 
Bob Stamm, and 868 kickoff return 
yards for his career to eclipse Joe 
Franchella's ( 1964-67) old record of 836 

The Aggie defense came through 
with its best effort of the season, limiting 
Wesley to just 298 yards of total offense, 
while forcing five turnovers. Four of the 
five turnovers came in the second half 
and led to touchdowns. 

Sophomore linebackers Mike 
Hirschmann (Archibishop Wood/- 
Warminster, PA ) and Darren Bethke 
(Neshaminy/Parkland, PA) continue to 
lead the squad in tackles, registering 10 
and 12 stops respectively. Hirschmann 
has a team-high 87 tackles on the 
season, while Bethke is right behind 
with 76 stops. 

Sophomore defensive end Bill 
Maynard (Panther Valley/Lansford, PA) 
added to his team-leading sack total of 
eight with two more against Wesley to 
go with five tackles. Sophomore 
defensive end Paul DiMaria (Bishop 
McDevitt/Glenside, PA) added nine 
tackles and his first sack of the season 
in the winning effort. 

Sophomore safety Dave Samuel 
(Frankford/Philadelphia. PA), a MAC 
Player of the Week nominee, intercepted 
his fifth pass of the season, which leads 
the team, and also intercepted a fumble 
on the DelVal one yard line and returned 
it 34 yards to stall a Wolverine drive. 

Freshman safety Andy Sgarra 
(Roxboro/Philadelphia, PA) got the 
green and Gold back in the game when 
he intercepted his first career pass and 
returned it 24 yards for a touchdown 
with less than one minute gone in the 
second half to pull DelVal within one at 
14-13. He also stopped an earlier Wesley 
drive with a fumble recovery, while 
registering four tackles. 


All DelVal students are encouraged to invite their parents to spend a day at the 
college to meet with the professors, staff, and administrators.

Student of the Month 
Georse A. Jones 

George A. Jones, an Agronomy 
Major, was chosen student of the month 
because of his energy, vitality, self- 
motivation, and hard work. George 
came to Delaware Valley College from 
W.B. Saul of Agriculture High School in

Adam: Could you tell us what happened at the last board meeting 
give your views of them? 

Mr. Raab: Mr. Gemill (former chairman of the board) opened the 

meeting and then turned it over to Mr. Silverman to make 
the President's report. We vent through the President's 
report and then had an election of officers. What had 
happened was that the board decided who was going to run 
the school. Whether the alumni were going to run it, or 
whether the outside trustees were going to run it. The 
outside trustees, and I will tell you that we call 
ourselves the **White Hats'* and by the way, we don't 
refer to the others as the Black Hats. We refer to the 
alumni as the independents. Obviously there were two 
different directions in which we thought the school 
should be moving. The independents were adamant that 
the school remain an independent institution. The 
"White Hats" were certainly willing to give the 
independents "Go it alone option" as fair a shake as we 
thought we could, but we wanted to keep the doors open to 
affiliate with other institutions. That was basically 
w^iat happened at the last meeting and what was decided 
upon. As you saw, I think the vote was twelve to ten 
to go with the alumni faction. 

Adam: So there were ten board members that were devoted to 
keeping an open mind... 

Mr. Raab: In effect, you're right. Remember that there were to 
have been two slates of candidates presented for 
election. In fact, there were two candidates put up 
for Chairman, and that is where the vote took place, 
soley on chairmanship, because once Dr. Nandell was 
elected Chairman, all of the "White Hats" backed out. 
But then as you were saying, yes, ten people voted 
to keep an open mind, and twelve voted to stay 
independent . 
Adam: How will the division within the trustees affect the 
ooeration of the board? 


Mr. Raab: 

Mr. Raab: 
Mr. Raab: 
Mr. Raab: 

That's a good question. I have no idea how the board 

is operating right now. Two months ago I was an integral 

part of the board of trustees. The ten of us that voted 

in the minority have been taken out of any decision 

making, and we have no idea of what is happening at the 

school . 

That was done by the majority vote? 

Yes, by the Executive Committee. 

They in effect took you out of... 


So they are now. . • 

Running the school. 

And can put their people in whatever positions they wish 

on the board? 

Mr. Raab: Yes. 

Adam: So there is no coxinterba lance? 

Mr. Raab: Well, remember that while there have been resignations 
from the board since the last meeting, there are still a 
number of '*White Hats" on the board. I would hope that 
no more would leave. I would be somewhat surprised if 
the independents don't put more people on the board that 
favor their position. 

Adam: From the standpoint of looking to the right direction, 
is this leading to doom? 

Mr. Raab: You are asking what is really an unfair question only 

because I feel the answer to that is not positive. Is it 
leading to doom? I certainly hope not. I hope that Dr. 
Mandell is going to do everything that he thinks his 
group can do. His group has promised to raise $2 million 
in annual giving, to raise additional funds for capital 
expenditures, and they made a number of, for lack of a 
better word, "Campaign Promises'* including increasing 
tuition paying enrollment by one-hundred students. I 
don't know that it can or can't be done, I certainly hope 
that it can. I also certainly hope that every trustee 
that remains on the board will try to achieve that goal. 
No one is going to be working against what Dr. Mandell 
is going to do. Whether any of us be right or wrong 
in how we felt six weeks ago or how we feel today, I 
honestly believe that every trustee was doing and is 
doing what they think is right for the school. 

Adam: With all of the talk and rumor about Del Val "Going 
State," or "Affiliating with the state system," can 
you describe what these phrases really mean? 

Mr. Raab: The alliances that we were considering were either those 
of a private institution, affiliating with the state 
system of higher education, or affiliating with Penn 
State. What we immediately did was to remain an 
independent institution for the time being. As you 
probably heard reference to at some point, there were two 
task forces formed. Dr. Montileone headed the force that 
was responsible for looking at the external forces that 
were affecting the school, and my task force was looking 
at the internal factors that were affecting the school. 
We, for the most part now headed by Bill Rorer (former 
President of Del Val) spoke with individuals from all 
three areas of affiliation. It appeared that the idea of 
affiliating with another independent educational 



Eight panelists and 400 students gathered In the 
auditorium of Central Bucks High School on January 8th to discuss 
the use of nilltary force In the Persian Gulf. January 15th had 
already been set by President Bush as the deadline to nake the 
decision as to whether the United States should go to war, or not, 
with Iraq. The moderator was Mr. Burkett a teacher at Central 
Bucks East High School. Dr. Goldberg and Mr. Simone, both DVC 
professors, spoke to the students. Dr. Goldberg suggested that the 
choice of going to war was a constitutional process that congress 
must debate. Other panelists included a business marketing 
director, Mr. Charles Heath; a former associated press 
corespondent, Tom Baldwin; A Bucks County Community College 
professor, David Sconyers; Peter Kostmeyer; and more of the Central 
Bucks faculty. Some of the panelists were veterans themselves. 
They all discussed the pros and cons of going to war. 

The students were active participants in the discussion. 
At the end of the meeting they voted a 246 to 186 majority to go to 
war. Mr. Burkett was pleased with the variation of the academic 
community on the panel. He said "it was a good cross section for 
a debate." He felt that they achieved their objective in keeping 
the keeping the students attention. He said that since some of the 
students had family and friends in the military, the discussion was 
more important to them. 


Delaware Valley College saluted Black History Month by 
hosting an exhibit of African-American art on Tuesday, February 26, 
from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the Student Center lobby. A 
collection of original artwork, prints, posters, and folk art 
depicting Black America was on display. 

The exhibit, featuring both local and nationally known 
African-American artists, was provided by the October Gallery of 
Philadelphia, which specializes in this type of art and conducts 
national tours of its extensive collection. 

institution was not really a good idea, and the reason 
for that being that we probable would not be able to find 
at least a Pennsylvania institution that had a strong 
enough financial base to affiliate with. So we never 
looked at the independent affiliation option with 
tremendous scrutiny. We did look at the state system 
and Penn State. Both the State system and Penn State 
were offering what appeared to be for the most part the 
same thing. They were different, but it was really in 

^1 , 

- I»\\«vi»v>>~ 


the nitty gritty details. Under the state system plan, 
ve would have become the fourteenth university in the 
state system. To be one of the state system schools, 
you must become a university among other things. But 
the great thing that the state system offered to Delaware 
Valley College was money, and a great deal of money. 
They were going to come in and fund many of the things 
that D.V.C. needs. They were going to lower tuition. 
That was very important to us. The problem with the 
state system was that D.V.C. would loose control of its 
self. It would be controlled by the board of education 
of the state of Pennsylvania. D.V.C. would continue to 
have a board, but it would be an advisory board to the 
state. That was the problem, well at least in some 
peoples' minds. Penn State basically was offering the 
same thing, but we never got as far with Penn State as to 
how much money they would put in. We did gop that far 
with the state system. Penn State wanted D.V.C. to 
become a wholly owned subsidiary of Penn State 
University. It would continue as Delaware Valley 
College, but it would be owned and therefore operated 
by Penn State. Both systems wanted D.V.C. in my opinion, 
one for its land, and two for its agricultural programs. 

Adam: How much did our land figure in to any possible deal? 
Were they interested in keeping it, selling it? 

Mr. Raab: No. Neither system wanted to sell the land. They looked 
at the land as an asset because it means that the school 
can grow. 

Adam: So affiliating with Penn State or the state system 

basically would have surrendered control of the school 
in exchange for the cash to straighten things out? 

Mr. Raab: You have to look at the cash from two different 

perspectives. One being the cash to straighten things 
out, i.e. your operating cash, and two being the cash for 
capital funding. To build new dorms, to fix broken 
things, to build new classrooms and labs. I am most 
concerned about the capital funding at D.V.C. I think 
that if we do not improve the physical ability of the 
college, then we will not be able to attract new 
students. Both of these options would have improved 
our physical ability. 

Do you feel the college should remain independent? 
I feel the college should remain independent. I think 
that's the direction the board wants to move. I do feel 
however, that the college can not, should not, close 
its eyes to other options. I don't want to see the 
college walk down a road saying ''We're going to do it 
this way and there is no other way out. If we don't 
do it this way we're going to close the school.** I don't 
want the college to do that. I want them to have other 

Adam: The head of the alumni association seemed to say that 
under the Rorer Administration, the association really 
had not done much in the way of fund raising. They had 

Mr. Raab: 


not put in as such effort as they should have, or 
something along those lines. Was this the way things 
were with the association? 

Mr. Raab: I guess. You know, the alumni of D.V.C. is different from 
the alumni of most other independent schools. Number 
one, even though we've been in business for almost 100 
years, we don't have that many alumni. Of the alumni we 
have, because we were primarily an agricultural school 
until our fairly recent past, our alumni went out and 
farmed. They don't have a lot of money to give. I think 
our alumni have done a pretty good job of giving to their 

Adam: At the last meeting of the board. Trustee Mark Hankin 
brought his lawyer and read from Roberts Rules. How 
conmon or uncommon is it for a trustee to bring a lawyer 
or read from Roberts Rules? 

Mr. Raab: I've sat on a lot of boards and I've never seen it done 
before. I don't know what the heck he was trying to 
prove. I have no idea. I have no idea whatsoever. 
I had never seen it done, and neither had Mr. Gemill 
(former chairman of the board) . 

Adam: I think Mr. Hankin took a lot of people by surprise when 
he announced that he was donating $100,000 to the 
college. Mr. Art Foley then pledged $100,000 of his 
money to the college. How did you react to this? 

Mr. Raab: I didn't. I'm glad to see him make that donation. I'd 
glad to see that, and I think it's great. I give very 
little money myself directly. My gif tings happen to be 
through a foundation of the board of directors. We vote 
where we will give the money that comes into the 
foundation. I'm surprised that Mark, well, it's just 
a method of giving. For years we have given anonymously. 
I'm not much of a showboat. 

Adam: We might have just covered part of this, but Mr. Hankin 
stated that not enough of the trustees were giving as 
much as he thought they could or should be. Is there a 
basis for this statement? 

Mr. Raab: Usually when you choose a bdard for a charitable 

institution, you choose three types of board members. 
Those that are able to give, those that are workers and 
will do the work that has to be done, and three, you 
choose those whose name is going to enhance the school. 
We certainly had in the past, and I don't want to talk 
about present board members, but we certainly had board 
members that did very little for the school. I think 
those members that are active in the school, and 
certainly those that were at the last board meeting 
must be considered active. I think they are giving to 
the best of their ability. 

Adam: What can the general college community, the students, 

the faculty, and the staff, do to help the college now? 

Mr. Raab: I think the most important thing the college community 
can do is to bring more students to the school. It's 
about saying, **I go to a great school called Delaware 



Valley College that has a great course in x, y, or z." 
I think you have to get more students. I just think it 
is truly necessary. 

Adam: Is there anything else you would like to say to the 
college community? 

Mr. Raab: It is not unusual for boards to disagree. It is 

dangerous to have a split board. I am confident that 
as long as the remaining trustees on the board pull 
together and work for the betterment of the school, 
that the school is going to come out of this in fine 
shape. I don't think we're going to see changes 
overnight; I wish we could. I really wish there was a 
tooth fairy. That we'd wake up tomorrow and find that 
someone had given us $20 million, and we could do all of 
the things that we'd like to do. Unfortunately it is not 
that easy, and I think we are going to have to work for 
it. I trust that the board will be able to pull together 
and do that work. I think the college community should 
put pressure on the board to do that. 

Adam: Thank you. 


The Pennsylvania Nursurymen's Association, Chapter E-l 
presented a rare form of Japanese White Pine to the Henry Schmieder 
Arboretum at DVC on Thursday, January 17. 

The presentation and dedication of the tree was made by 
Mark Hawley a representative of the Pennsylvania Nurserymen's 
Association, to George West, Acting President, during the Chapter's 
Winter Educational Seminar. 

Over 300 nurserymen and nurserywomen attended the seminar 
which featured speakers adressing a variety of industry topics. 
Also in abundance were various local legislators, including State 
Representative, Jean Wilson, who was the special guest speaker for 
the arboretum presentation and nurserymen's luncheon. 

Apprication of the PNA's gift to the college was 
expressed by Acting President West. John Martin, Director of the 
Arboretum, said that he was gratified by the support given to the 
Arboretum by industry, foundations, and the general public. He 
added, **The Pennsylvania Nurserymen's Association has a reputation 
as an environmentally concerned organization supportive of 
education in the field. The Arboretum sincerely appriciates the 
generous gift." 

The Henry Schmieder Arboretum, a member of the American 
Association of Botanical Gardens and Arboreta, encompasses the 
entire main campus of DVC. 




Adan: Can you tell us what happened at the last Board of 

Trustees meeting where the new officers were elected? 

Mr. Hankln: The board was obviously split on the decisions that 

had to be made. It was the feeling of what turned out 
to be the majority that we wanted to elect someone as 
the chairman of the board who was supportive of the 
position that was taken at the previous meeting. That 
position was to remain an Independent Institution and 
take whatever efforts that are necessary to Insure 
that that was given a fair time to work Its way out. 
A format had been put together by the previous 
Executive Committee with the Chairman to nominate 
people that supported their views, even though they had 
been the minority views at the prior meeting of the 
board. We nominated a new slate, and had enough people 
there to support that slate. That represented the 
wishes of the prior board, which was to have a board 
that was committed to Independence, and committed to 
taking the necessary measures to support Independence. 
As a result, we elected people that were different from 
the slate t^at was proposed by the former Executive 

Adam: When Dr. Mandell was elected as Chairman of the Board, 

everyone on the original slate withdrew their names? 

Mr. Hankln: The election of Dr. Mandell symbolized to the people 

who wanted to retain the position of control that they 
had, that they basically had lost that battle. And so 
with his name being the first name up and the other 
names being nominated, they just all withdrew knowing 
that they did not have the votes to sustain the 
position that they were trying to push through. 

Adam: What are the different Ideas the two sldps of the Board 

of Trustees have? 

Mr. Hankln: The basic difference, as I understand It, Is that the 

prior Executive Board which was working together with 
former President Rorer, wanted to merge Delaware Valley 
College Into the Fenn State system. Penn State 
apparently did not respond the way they wanted, or 
respond at all Is more appropriate. They took what 
they considered their backup alternative, one that 
they had not really supported strongly until Penn State 
did not respond affirmatively. The backup alternative 
was to become a part of the University of Pennsylvania 
higher education system. They wanted to push Delaware 
Valley College towards that merger which would have 
turned us Into an Institution such as Slippery Rock, 
or one of the other state schools. They felt that the 
college could not remain Independent because of Its 
financial problems which had been hastened by the 

-?<«<. t 

Mr. Hankin: 


Mr. Hankin: 

actions of the former Executive Board by the action 
of Bill Rorer. In my opinion, I don't think they 
acted responsibly if their intention was to help 
Delaware Valley College grow as an independent school. 
Faced with the problem of the failure to raise money, 
their easy way out was to merge the college. Then they 
could say that they had succeeded, instead of really 
having failed at their task. That is really the 
difference. If we are not successful, we can always 
take the failure route out and call it a success. 
Adam: Is the split in the board deep enough to impair its 

performance, and how close was the actual vote? 
No, I don't think so. First of all, the college is run 
by the president and the executive board. When we 
voted to remain independent, the vote was about 
2-1 in favor of remaining independent. 
How much control do the independents now have? 
The independents now control the board. The Executive 
Committee fills all of the various committees, oversees 
the operation of the college from the boards' point of 
view, and gives support to the administation. The 
independents now control all of the committees. 
The independents can be positioned. . . 
They are already filled. 
Filled with the independents? 

Well, not all of them. I think we do have some people 
from the minority position to have representation. The 
board is supposed to work unanimously. 
So there is a counter balance? 

There should be. Just because the board voted on a 
very close vote doesn't mean that you have a split 
board. Once the vote is taken, the board acts in a 
unanimous fashion. There have some members who have 
resigned because they felt they were not comfortable 
working in that program. We will be bringing new 
board members on, and they will be told what the goal 
of this college is, and these people will support 
and work towards that goal. 

Is it possible that the board will take an approach 
where they say that they are single minded in their 
efforts to keep the college independent? 
No, I don't think so. The board has several 
constraints. Certain budgetary constraints that we 
can't go beyond. Therefore, if we reach a point one, 
two, three years from now where we can't control the 
budget and bring enough money in, at that point we'll 
have to say, **Well, since we can't do that, obviously 
what we want is our institution to survive in this 
area to provide educational opportunities in the 
framework that we think is important to this 
community. ** Then we would seek alternative solutions, 
whether that would be Penn State or the University of 
Pennsylvania. These opportunities, in my opinion, will 
always be there because we have a very valuable asset.

Mr. Hankin: 


- XwVo-^ito- 

Adam: In the hypothetical situation that the college cannot 

remain independent, what would be the iminediate and 
long term changes at Del Val? 

Mr. Hank in: To tell you the truth, I don't think it is even worth 

thinking about. The truth is, the college will remain 
independent. I am firmly convinced that we can resolve 
the financial situation here so that the college will 
remain independent. I put money into this college 
because I am sure that we can do it. It is not an 
insurmountable problem by any stretch of the 

Adam: You brought along your lawyer and read from "Robert's 

Rules'* at the last meeting. Many people described 
that action as being highly unusual. What were your 
reasons for doing so? 

Mr. Hankin: I had heard that the prior Executive Board had planned 

to do certain things to protect their interests. I had 
heard that they had planned a certain strategy to 
protect the interests they felt were best for the 
college, in spite of the 2-1 vote at the prior meeting. 
Their goal even after the vote was to merge the college 
out, and they were doing everything possible to do 
V that, and that was wrong. I felt it was appropriate 
to have an attorney there so that he could find the 
appropriate pages for me in Robert's Rules so that I 
could read them for the record if that was necessary. 
Obviously at one point I felt it was necessary. 

Adam: You stated in the meeting that some of the board 

members are not contributing as much to the college 
as they should be? 

Mr. Hankin: There are two reasons for being a board member on a 

charitable board. One is to provide expertise, and 
the other is to contribute money. A person should 
not be on a board like this and contribute just a 
thousand dollars. That is just inappropriate. When 
When they are brought on to the board, they should be 
told that they are expected to make significant 
contributions, significant as a relative term • 
obviously. We have a nvunber of members on the board 
who do not. 

Adam: What can the students, the faculty, and the staff do 

to help the college? 

Mr. Hankin: The staff and the faculty can do a lot by controlling 

their expenditures. That's the first step. Everyone 
on campus should observe. This can be done by picking 
up their own trash, shutting off lights, etc. The 
student body can do a lot by not being wasteful. Talk 
up DVC at the high schools. We need more students. The 
best sale for a college is a student going back to 
their high school and saying what they like about it. 

Adam: Is there anything else that you would like to say 

to the campus? 

Mr. Hankin: I think that they should know that what has happened 

is a family quarrel. Like any family quarrel, people 

fight for what they believe in, and once that fight is 
over, everyone should buckle down and work towards the 
goal that the majority supported. The students, the 
faculty, and the staff should do everything that they 
can to help us achieve that goal. Know that our 
conmitment is a strong one, and I see no reason why 
Delaware Valley College cannot remain independent. 
Delaware Valley College has a very bright future. 


The 1990 field hockey team experienced another tough season, 
posting 2-15 record. The 11, sometimes 10 girl squad learned a 
great deal about themselves and their abilities, as the season 
progressed. **The girls are a fundamentally sound team that wants 
to win and will win if they continue to work hard together'* (Coach 
Fleischer) Coach Fleischer also sees light over the horizon as 
intense recruiting brings in players to compliment those already on 
the team. This years squad was led by captains Suzette Brought 
(soph) , Amy Follweiler (soph) , and Lisa Monteiro ( jr) . Other team 
members included Angle Cromin (sr) , Melody Gessaman ( jr) , Marlene 
Burns ( jr) , Sherri McAllister (fr) , Karen Geib (FR) , Gladys Hodge 
(fr), April Hansen (fr) , and Amy Terry (fr) . Melody Geesaman was

achievement and financial need. Each award Is $2,000, made to the 
student for two or more years to encourage continuity and 

An additional grant of $5,000 was made for the W.W. 
Smith Schlorshlp Prize program. This special award Is Intended to 
benefit a student during the 1990-1991 academic year. That student 
must have received a W.W. Smith grant In the past, and must be 
matriculated In the senior undergraduate year. This year's 
recipient of the W.W. Smith Schlorshlp Prize Is Sallv Garaula . of 
Huntingdon Pa. . a Business Administration major. 

'*We are most pleased with the on-going relationship 
between the W.W. Smith Charitable Trust and Delaware Valley 
College," said Robert Sauer Director of Financial Aid for DVC, "and 
are delighted that our students continue to receive these generous 
grants. In making every effort to help each student meet the 
rising costs of higher education, we all are most appreciative of 
W.W. Smith Charitable Trust's support so that we can continue to 
offer substantial financial aid packages to ease the cost burden 
carried by our students and their families.** 

The W.W. Smith Charitable Trust is the third largest 
private foundation in Philadelphia, providing $6 million annually 
in grants for college schlorshlp programs, heart disease, cancer, 
and AIDS scientific research, indigent care at hospitals, and human 
needs for children and the elderly In the Delaware Valley. 


Members of DVC's Floral Society placed yellow ribbons on 
trees bordering route 202, the entire length of Del Vals sprawling 
property to help express the College's concern for our troops In 
the Middle East. Dozens and dozens of ribbons representing over 
600 yards of ribbon were used in this outpouring of support. 

Dr. John Martin, Chairman of the Department of Ornamental 
Horticulture and Environmental Design Is an advisor to the club. 
Dr. Martin said that the yellow ribbons are a sincere visual 
representation of our love and concern for our troops - a wish that 
they return safely and as soon as possible. He pointed out that 
while there are many opinions on campus as to the merits of the 
war, everyone is united in support and concern for our troops. 

The students plan to continue to add ribbons to trees 
bordering the entire perimeter of the college's 600 acre campus. 
All hope that the war ends soon, but know their support won't.

DVC is developing a Criminal Justice Administration 
major to add to the growing list of career-oriented majors now " 
being offered by the college. 

Recently the college added a Mathematics major and 
an English major to its business, science and agricultural 
curriculum. The proposed Criminal Justice Administration major 
would be a progressive addition to the college's program. Like the 
other programs offered by the college, it is geared toward 
preparing students for current career opportunities. 

If the proposal meets the approval of Pennsylvania's 
Department of Education, DVC will offer a four-year program leading 
to a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Administration degree. 
The proposed curriculum is geared toward those individuals 
interested in careers in police work, probation, parole, prison 
administration, corrections, and other related fields in the 
supervision and management of the justice system. 

According to Dr. James P. Hirsh, the college's 
Director of Continuing Education, this program is unique in that it 
offers an interdisciplinary curriculum that includes a strong 
liberal arts background, a focus on management techniques and 
skills to complement the traditional criminal justice courses. 

Once the program is approved by the Commonwealth, it 
will be added to the college's program roster. Dr. John Mertz, 
College Provost said, "We are quite excited by the development. 
There is clearly an interest in this discipline within the N^ 
community, and it will dovetail nicely with the two year programs 
offered by area community colleges. Moreover, it is clearly 
consistent with our college's mission, which is to provide the very 
best career-oriented programs to meet the needs of the Delaware 
Valley Community. •• 


This year Pride and Polish Day will be on April 17, just 
a few days before A-Day. The purpose of this day is to get the 
college more prepared for A-Day and to give the students, faculty 
and administration a chance to work together around the campus. 
It will be a good day to put on some jeans and rake leaves or make 
security barricades, since classes will not be held. This will 
also be a good time for office workers to take a break from their 
usual routines. 

Last year on Pride and Polish Day, brick walls, fences, 
and floors were repaired. 

This year there will be a dinner with valuable door prizes 
(jackets, etc.) to be given away. There may also be some sporting 
events held after all the work is done, so come enjoy the fun.

PART I: A Stretching Routine You Can Follow 

By: Judy Peltz 

In the last issue of the Ram Pages, the importance of 
stretching was examined. Now that you know its relevance to your 
fitness program you'll want to construct some kind of stretching 
routine . 

Before going into a sequence of stretching take 5 to 10 
minutes to warm up with some light aerobic activity. You should 
begin to perspire at the end of this warm up phase. A brief period 
of light aerobic work will elevate your heart rate, stimulate 
circulation, warm the muscles, and in short, prepare your body for 
the work out to follow. 

Let us assume you are warmed up and ready to stretch. 
Where do you begin and what are you going to do? Preferably, you 
want to start exercising your larger muscle groups first. This 
isn't mandatory but it is a good idea, if you have not warmed up 
adequately and try to stretch smaller more specific muscle areas 
before larger ones (especially if your flexibility is not what it 
should be) , you run a greater risk of injury. 

Some of you already have a stretching routine that you 
have acquired through participating in various sports programs. 
Stick with your programs, but be certain your posture and technique 
are proper. Hint: mirrors are great places for posture 
observation. Also, make sure you remove any "no no** stretches from 
your routine. There seems to be* a growing list of **outlawed'* 
stretches. Here are some of the **no no's** to date: straight leg 
sit ups, hurdler stretch, yoga plow, full neck circles, and hands 
on hips back bends. Most of these are bad news because they place 
unnecessary strain on the vertebral column. There are safer 
alternatives. Avoid the above exercises I 

Now that you know what not to do, let's construct an 
actual routine. This is just one of the many possible approaches. 
Let's begin with the buttocks /hips /leg area or the lower body. 

1. Standing Quadriceps Stretch- Stand facing a wall or 
some object that you can use forXbalance and support. Place your 
right leg behind you and grab it at the ankle with your left hand. 
Give a gentle pull back and up toward the buttocks until you feel 
a good stretch on the upper front portion of your right leg. Be 
sure you are standing with good posture- no slouching. Hold the 
stretch for 10 to 30 seconds, then release and change legs. This 
time your left leg comes back and your right hand grabs the ankle. 

2. Reclining Hamstring Stretch- you want to sit on the 
floor for this exercise. Lie back with your knees bent in a sit-up 
like position. Extend your Right leg out leaving just a slight 
bend to the knee (don't lock the knee) . Grab hold of your Right 
leg with both hands at or as close to the ankle as you can get, and 
keep your upper body flat on the floor. Gently pull the extended 
right leg toward your upper body until you feel a squeeze in the 
upper rear portion of your right leg. Hold for 10 to 30 seconds, 
once you feel the squeeze, and then release. Now it's time for the 
left leg. Once you've mastered the basics of this stretch, try 
flexing the foot and pulling in and then pointing the foot and 



pulling in toward the body . Flexing will place more tension on 
the back of the leg and give you a better stretch. 

3, Flat on Your Back Lea Crosses- This is a great exercise 
in that it not only stretches the hip and buttock area, but also 
part of the lower back. However, form and execution are very 
important so read carefully. Keep your arms flat on the floor at 
shoulder level and leave them there, against the floor, for the 
entire stretch. Now, take your right leg extend it up in the air 
and begin to slowly drop the leg toward the left side of your body. 
Remember: your arms and shoulders should remain flat throughout 
this exercise. Continue to drop the leg as far as you can 
comfortably go. Ideally you want to touch the floor. You should 
feel a stretch on your right hip, buttocks and the right side of 
your torso. Hold the stretch for 10 to 30 seconds then switch 
legs . 

4. straddle stretch for Inner Thiah - Sit up straight with 
your legs placed apart in a **V** position. Keep your back in proper 
anatomical position and keep your eyes focused straight ahead to 
avoid slouching. Lean forward from your hips toward the center of 
your '*V** Hold for 10 to 30 seconds and then release. You may also 
use this as a hamstring stretch by simply turning your torso to the 
right or left side when performing the exercise. 

5. Calve Stretch - Stand up and face a wall with you hands 
against the wall at shoulder level. Begin to walk your feet 
backwards away from the wall until you can not keep your feet flat 
on the floor. Now move your feet in, to where you are first able 
to keep them flat. Take a step in toward the wall with your right 
leg and lean, from the hips, toward the wall keeping both feet 
flat. You should feel a stretch on the lower rear portion of your 
left leg. Hold position for 10 to 30 seconds and switch legs. 

Read though these exercises and practice them with a 
friend or roommate. You can watch each other's form and help one 
another. Some of you already know these exercises, so give the 
other people who don't know them a demonstration. All of you 
fitness fanatics out there encourage your not-so-active friends to 
start a fitness program by getting them acquainted with different 
activities. Physical fitness is an important component to your 
overall well being. Oet with it I

routine series: Upper Body Stretches. Also, please send any 
questions or comments concerning fitness, nutrition, training, etc.

A pair of delaware valley college athletes have been named to 
the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Academic Honor Roll for the 
1990 fall sports season. Senior football player Travis Sherman 
(New Oxford/Abbottstown, PA) and junior field hockey standout 
Melody Geesman (Fairfield/Fairfield, PA) were recognized by the MAC 
for outstanding performances both on the field and in the 

The MAC recognized 135 athletes on the Fall Honor Roll, who 
ware of sophomore standing or higher with at least a 3.4 grade 
point average (gpa) . 

Geesman was the second leading scorer on the 1990 Del Val 
Field hockey squad that finished with a 2-14 record. She scored 
three goals and added one assist for seven points from her forward 
positions. In the classroom, Geesman holds a 3.75 gpa as na 
ornamental horticulture/Landscape major. She has been a dean's 
list student all four semesters at Del Val and is also active in 
intramural floor hockey and the landscape/nursery club. 

Sherman was a starting defensive tackle for the 3-7 Aggie 
football squad and finished his senior season with 28 tackles and 
one quarterback sack for a loss of 12 yards. An agronomy major at 
Del Val, Sherman has posted a 3.43 gpa, while also being on the 
Dean's List and a member of the Agronomy club on campus. 


No matter where you live-in city or the country-you are a 
"land user**. As such you are responsible for its care, whether you 
own it, lease it, rent it or just use it. 

We are all dependent on the land. Buildings rest on it, trees 
root in it, vegetables plants and grasses grow in it. 
Unfortunately we often get involved in our own pursuits and forget 
about the land. 

Thomas Jefferson once said •*a nations wealth is no greater 
than the depth of its topsoil** for every great nation that has 
risen it has fallen. It is important to realize that we are using 
most of our natural resources, especially topsoil, at a finite 

All life depends on topsoil and will cease to exist when it is 
all gone. Make a commitment to support sound conservation Whatever 
it may be. 


Are you interested in using a video camera on campus? 
Are you serious? Whether or not you have prior courses or 
experience you can contact the Media Center if you wish to use one 
for Media Center assignments. 

What,s Involved? 
First, contact Ms. Vogel, Media Director during the day. You will 
recieve training on school equiptment and an opportunity to further 
develop your techniques and skills. You can sign up for whatever 
days and hours you would be available. Then you will recieve 
assignments for taping school events such as taping guest lecturers 
from out of town or similar projects. 

Using a video camera will show you things you might miss with the 
naked eye, such as a mouse running away or reactions of people in 
a crowd. If you videotape, you can learn about features of 
different video cameras and information on purchasing one of the 
four or five models that come out each year. Seeing yourself as 
others see you, saving those good times on tape and sports training 
are some of the most popular uses of a video camera. 

If you have your own camcorder and have skills plus 
experience, a part tine job could be a side business. 
Opportunities are there to make money by taping weddings and 
special events if you know what you are doing.

DVC as part of its progressive development of career- 
orientated programs has applied to the Commenwealth's Department of 
Education for the approval to introduce an Education major and 
secondary teaching certification program. 

Since DVC is the only non-sectarian, private college in 
Bucks County, there has been increasing demand in this area for a 
4-year program leading to a degree in education and certification 
in secondary teaching. According to Dr. Mertz, Provost, **We have 
had some experience providing in-service programs in science areas 
for teachers. A significant fraction of our graduates have 
certified elsewhere to become teachers, mostly at the secondary 
level. Both of these points have convinced us that we have 
excellent capabilities in terms of the subject matter. What has 
been missing is the opportunity to certify teachers. We believe we 
can be of service in this arena and hope to persuade the 
Commonwealth to agree with us.** 

The college has recently introduced a Mathematics and an 
English major. These new majors along with the current offerings 
in business, science and agriculture complement the proposed 
education major. 



This month's student of the month is Doug Linde, a senior 
majoring in Agronomy Environmental Science with a Turf Grass minor. 

Doug was born August 1, 1969 and lives in Coopersburg Pa. 
His father is a superintendent at the Wedgevood Golf Course and a 
1960 graduate in Horticulture from DVC. His mother is an R.N. 
working in a private family practice. Doug also has two older 
brothers and a younger sister. 

Since he lived on the grounds of a golf course all of his 
life, Doug has become an obsessive golfer and dreams of becoming a 
pro. He is a member of the DVC intercollegiate golf team and has 
been the number one golfer on the team since his freshman year. 
Last year he was chosen All-American Scholar-Athlete by the Golf 
Coaches Association of America. He has also been chosen the M.V.P. 
Golfer twice. 

In addition to playing golf, Doug plays center on the DVC 
basketball team and is co-captain of the team with Eric Banks. 
Twice he has received the Calvin P. Kidder III Memorial Basketball 
Award . 

Doug has been recognized for his academic accomplishments

Presidential Diplomat, and as a DVC Embassador. He has also 
received many scholarships for his academic achievement, these 
include; the Alumni Association Scholarship, the Ned E. Linta 
Memorial Athletic Scholarship, the Golf Course Superintendent 
Association of America scholarship- with the conference in Florida. 

During the summer, and on weekends, Doug works at the 
Wedgewood Golf Course. Doug's goal is to work in the golf 
industry, even though he has not decided in what capacity or 
specific area as of yet. Currently he is looking into going to 
graduate school to get his masters in Turf Grass. 

The Ram Pages staff would like to congratulate Doug Linde 
for being chosen this month's Student of the Month.

DVC Holds Student Forum 

By: James Masculi 

A student forum was held Tuesday 
March, 12 at 8 p.m. in the coffeehouse. 
The forum was mn by the Student 
Government. The purpose was to enable 
students to take their ideas and concerns 
to the administration of the college in a 
constructive manner. Heading the board 
was Student Government President Ken 
Peterson, class of '94 President Mike 
Jadis, and Ram Pages Representative 

Adam Kaplan. 

The first topic was the new majors 
offered at DVC. There are now Math, 
Criminal Justice, and Education Majors 
available. The reaction towards these 
was positive. 

One topic not on the agenda that was 
discussed, was the meal plan for 
students. It was suggested that students 
pay for a specific number of meals rather 
than pay for a whole semester of meals. 
It was that many students don't eat all of 
the meals that they payed for. Some 
students eat only two meals a day, istead 
of three. 

Another item discussed was how the 
school can advertise to agrk:ultural areas 
of Pennsylvania. It was suggested that 
we distribute more brochures to other 
schools in rural

Valley College, on February 26, 1991 . 

The special program concerning 
STD's was the result of a recent outbreak 
of Gonorrhea on the DVC campus. 
Organized by the by Health Services and 
the Residence Life Staff, this activity had 
one of the largest turnouts for a dorm 
activity this year. 

The evening began with a brief 
explanation of the history of Sexually 
Transmitted Diseases. Pamphlets were 
handed out explaining how they are 
transmitted, describing the symptoms and 
treatments, and the preventative that 
measures can be taken to insure against 
contracting them, 
continued on next page 

A member of the colleges' Health 
Services Staff explained what DVC offers 
in the way of physical examinations, 
treatment, counseling, and confidentiality. 
He also shared some recent statistics: 1 4 
cases of gonorrhea have been reported 
on campus this semester alone. He 
explained that these were probably not 
the only cases, txit only those who were 
aware that they had contracted the 
disease. He urged any student who 
thought they were at hsk to see someone 
in the health center as soon as possible. 

in an effort to bring reality into the 
program and to show how quickly an 
epidemic can spread, an actual 
demonstration was performed by all 
students in attendance. Each student 
was given a small test tube with clear 
liquid in it They were directed to 
exchange fluids with other people. If the 
fluid turned pink, it meant that they had 
contracted the "disease." The 
participants were able to trace the 
"disease" all the way back to the original 

Most of the students left the program 
with new-found knowledge, and said that 
they would like to see more activities like 
this one in the future. 

Safer Sex 

By: Adam Kaplan and Student Health 

The DVC Student Health Center 
reminds students that they should start 
any new relationship slowly. 

if you plan to engage in sexual 
activities as part of a relationship, learn 
as much as possible about your partner, 
and about his or her past sexual 

The best way to avoid contracting a 
sexually transmitted disease (SID) is not 
to have sex. If that is out of the question, 
limit your sexual experiences. By 

reducing the number of sexual 
experiences, you reduce the odds of 
contracting a sexually transmitted 

Avoid any sexual practices that 
involve contact with semen or vaginal 
fluids. Think of what you can do rather 
than what you can't. Share erotic 
fantasies, hug, touch and play, etc. 

If you are going to engage in sex, 
here are a few safety pointers. Men 
shoukl always wear a condom from the 
beginning to the end of every sexual 
encounter. No exceptions! Latex 
condoms that are treated with 
Nonoxynol-9, a spermicide, offer the 
most protection. Women should always 
use a diaphragm that is treated with 
Nonoxynol-9. Due to the fact that 
sexually transmitted diseases can pass 
through the vaginal lining, a diaphragm 
alone does not provide sufficient 
protection. Men must still wear a 

if you are involved in a sexual 
relationship, it is the responsibility of both 
partners to make sure that they are both 

This article in no way condones 
sexual activity; the safest way to avoid 
STD is still abstinence.

Conveniently located in the Student 
Center, the DVC school store offers 
quality merchandise at competitive prices 
in a friendly, helpful environment Mrs. 
Kathleen Spratt, the store manager, 
emphases the aspect of quality.' 
Considerable effort has been spent on 
providing an interactive and helpful 

"I try to keep our prices as 
competitive as possible by shopping 
around and pricing the competition", says 

Mrs. Spratt Penn State and other 
colleges sell licensed products for which 
they pay substantial commissions; these 
fees can tangibly increase the prices. 
The DVC store's strategy is to maintain a 
large quantity of merchandise in supply, 
thus prices remain low. Sweat suits sell 
for ten to twelve dollars less at the school 
store than in other area stores. 

Mrs. Spratt relates a story, "! was in 
a sporting goods store at 
Montgomeryvilie Mall when two Del Vai 
students recognized me and said Tilings 
are so expensive here'" She continued 
by saying "We are very price conscious, 
we try to maintain an inventory with 
products in all price ranges. Sometimes, 
that five or six dollars can make a big 

The best selling items are always t- 
shirts and sweat suits; the store now 
retails the Champion brand name which 
is selling well. Novelty items and gifts for 
the alumni are also big sellers. Personal 
care items are sold as well. 

More than a convenience store, clubs 
worthing in special projects can acquire 
assistance from the store in obtaining 
material that they may need which are 
not always available. In short, the school 
store and staff are a resourse that Del 
Val students are encouraged to use. If 
there are any items that the store 
currently does not stock, ask Mrs. Spratt 
to secure them for you. Thank you for 
your past support! 

Sexual Harassment 
An Editorial 

By: Adam Kaplan 

Sexual Harassment is something that 
no one should have to put up with. 
Unfortunately, thi? type of harassment 
not only affects the person to whom it is 
directed, but also institutions and other 

Continue on next page 

people that are otherwise not involved. 
Recently, I witnessed two instances of 
what can be called sexual harassment on 
our campus, and I think that they need to 
be addressed. 

The first instance of sexual harassment 
happened as I was giving a 
tour of the campus to a prospective 
student and her parents. As is similar to 
the instance discussed below a group of 
guys whistled at the prospective student 
in a way that was clearly not meant to be 
a compliment, and actually sounded 
provocative. Again, this whistling was 
persistent. For the record, there was not 
anyone else around to which the 
whistling could have been directed. This 
prospective student, and her parents, 
were offended 

For the past month or so, a 
member of the faculty has been harassed 
regularly when leaving her class. The 
people that are doing the harassing are 
students that are in the room for the next 
period class. They whistle repeatedly at 
the faculty memt&r, and it is not the type 
of whistle that is meant to be a 
compliment. The professor has tried to 
talk to the students and express her 
anger about the issue. Talking to them 
did not work, as the whistling continues. 
The head of the department was also 
unsuccessful in dealing with the issue. 

By repeating this form of harassment, 
this group of students is showing a 
severe lack of respect, sensitivity, and 
maturity. In my mind and the minds of 
other people familiar with the situation, 
this type of whistling, after repeatedly 
being asked to stop, is certainly not 
meant to compliment, and is 
unwarranted. Not ail women appreciate 
being whistled at, and this group of 
students is especially out of line in doing 
this to a professor. 

This experience has left a rather dark 
impression of our college. One that had 

been bright before all of this started. 

As a Presidential Diplomat, I represent 
this college. I am angry because all of 
the work that all of the Diplomats do to 
try to show the merits of Del Val can be 
wiped away by one action such as this. 
And unfortunately, I think this may be one 
of them. Until this incident happened, 
both the parents and their daughter 
looked upon the college very favorably. 
When they left, their impression was just 
the opposite. My apologizes and efforts 
to try to explain that this was not the 
norm were not enough. This one event 
had shaped their image of Del Val. 

I'm not trying to say that all whistling 
is bad. Whistling among friends and 
people that you know well, if the 
intentions are good, is fine. When the 
whistle is directed at a person that you 
do not know, and it does not have good 
intentions behind it, such as with this 
prospective student, it is wrong. When 
the whistle is directed at a professor, a 
person that should be respected, it is 

Maybe the hardest part of all of this is 
that I know sexual harassment is not 
common on our campus. But when it 
does surface, the damage that is done is 
irreparable. So the few guys that are 
involved in this, how about stopping the 
harassment It is hurting everyone not 
just those involved 

Girls Basket Ball Season 
Comes to a Close 

Coming into this 1990-91 season, 
Del Val's women's basketball coach Gary 
Pento knew his young squad would be 
green an inexperienced, yet believed they 
could make a run at a fourth straight 
MAC - Northern Division playoff spot. 
The Lady Aggies came through, posting 
a 13-13 overall record and 6-4 mark in 
the MAC-NE to capture second place in 

the conference and give themselves a 
shot at going for the gold and winning the 
conference championship. 

Playing with a roster consisting of 
just nine players, including only one 
senior and one junior, Del Val finished 
out the year strongly, winning four of its 
last five games to clinch a playoff spot 
and finish out the regular season with a 
winning record. 

"I think our record doesn't 
indicate how well we have played this 
season, playing the tough schedule that 
we did," said Pento. "For the kids to go 
out and win four of ;their last five games 
was a credit to the team itself, making 
the playoffs by going out and earning it. 
Hopefully, the tough schedule we played 
will have them ready to play anyone in 
the playoffs." 

Leading the way for the lady 
aggies all season has been servor guard 
Karen Cummiskey, who tops the squad 
with a 16.4 ppg scoring average. The 
best three-point shooter on the team, 
Cummiskey has connected on a team- 
high 56 tries. She has led the team in 
scoring in 14 of the 25 games, including 
a career-high 27-point effort in a 63-58 
win over FDU-Madison. 

Sophomore fon/vard Andrea 
Shumack joined the team at the start of 
the second semester, after transferring 
from Kutztown University, and provided a 
big scoring and rebounding lift In 15 
games, Shumack has scored at a 14.3 
ppg clip, including a career-high 28 points 
in an 87-66 win over Lycoming, while 
hauling down 9.6 rpg. She leads the 
team with 21 blocked shots and has been 
to the foul line 84 times (55-84). 

Sophomore Dawn Papciak has 
come on strong since taking over the 
starting center position six games ago. 

Continue on next page 

for the season, Papciak averaged 5.5 
ppg and 5.4 rpg, but in her last five 
games, she has contributed 13.6 ppg, 
including a career-high 19 against 
Upsala, and 10.0 rpg, including a career- 
high 18 vs. FDU-Madison. 

Sophomore point guard 
Stephanie Armstrong has done a fine job 
in running the Delaware Valley offense. 
The team leader with 87 assists, 
Armstrong can also put the ball in the 
basket popping home 8.6 ppg, while 
grabbing 5.9 rpg. Freshman Natasha 
Upson backs up Armstrong at the point 
guard spot, averaging 2.6 ppg and 1 .7 
rpg in her rookie campaign. 

A pair of freshmen, Melanle 
Falkiewicz and Kelly Sdss share time at 
the other starting fon/vard position. 
Falkiewicz, the squad's defensive 
specialist, has averaged 3.5 ppg and 3.4 
rpg, while being matched up against the 
opposition's top player on the defensive 
end of the court Sciss, a starter in 16 of 
the 25 games this year, is the team's 
leading rebounded wilti 177, while 
scoring at a 4.7 ppg clip. 

Junior Stephanie Mason is also 
a big force off the Lady Aggie bench at a 
fOHA/ard position. In 20 games, Mason 
has averaged 8.4 ppg and 3.9 rpg, 
including an 18-point outing in an 
overtime win over Upsala. Sophomore 
center Pamela Ball missed the last six 
games with a broken pinky finger on her 

right hand. 

DVC Wrestlers Excel in 

With nine of ten wrestlers 
winning medals, the Delaware Valley 
College wrestling team rolled to its third 
Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) 
Wrestling Championship in the past five 

years and its fifth in school history at 
Haverford College. The Aggies garnered 
three individual titles and three second- 
place finishers, as they accumulated 
142.25 team points, which was nearly 
forty points better than second-place 
Lycoming (103.5). 

"I was very happy with the way 
the team wrestled at MAC'S," said 
eighteenth-year coach Bob Marshall. 1 
never expected to have nine medalists, 
especially with ail of them placing in the 
top five." 

Senior Mark Ambrose, sophomore 
Bemetri Kangas, and freshman Mike 
Johnson all won individual championships 
to receive automatic bids to the NCAA 
Division Hi Wrestling Championships at 
Augustanna College in Rock Island, 
Illinois. Senior Bob Mokrynchuk will also 
be after receiving an at-large bid from 
MAC coaches. 

Ambrose (25-0) captured his fourth 
straight MAC title at 158 pounds by 
rolling through the competition to earn the 
Sam Spinelli Award for Outstanding 
Wrestler for the second straight year. He 
recorded two technical falls and two falls 
in winning the title, including a fall over 
Tony Spagnola of Westem Maryland at 
4:42 in the finals. Ambrose is a three- 
time All-Amehcan and has finished 
second in the nation both his freshman 
and junior years, while winning the 158- 
pourid national title as a sophomore. 

Kangas (22-3-1) earned his 
second straight MAC Championship at 
134 pounds be defeating previously 
unbeaten Matt Silverstein of Muhlenberg 
in the finals 10-4. 

Wrestling in his first MAC 
championship tournament, Johnson (23- 
3-1 falls) was very impressive in winning 
the 150-pound weight class. He rolled 
through the first three rounds with three 
falls in a total of five minutes, before 

beating Moravian's Dave Yonney 5-4 in 
the finals to capture his first MAC title. 
Had it not been for the outstanding 
performance by Ambose, Johnson could 
have easily earned Outstanding Wrestler 

Mokrynchuk was thwarted in his attempt 
to win a forth straight MAC championship 
when de dropped a 6-3 decision to 
Lycoming's Pete Solomon in the finals. 
Mokrynchuk (25-2) still advanced to the 
national tournament after receiving one of 
four at-large bids fomi the MAC. 
Solomon handed Mokrynchuk his only 
other loss this season by a 7-5 score on 
January 26th. 

Senior Chuck McGrath and junior Dana 
Pinson also came away with second 
place medals at the MAC'S. Mcgrath (10- 
5)lost out to Mike Ahem of Bizabetntown 
in the 118-pound finals, 8-6, to complete 
his wrestling career with the Aggies. 
Pinsori (19-3-1), a two-timt MAC 
champion at 1 1 8 pounds, lost in the 1 26- 
pound final to Lycoming's Kurt Schneck 

Three freshmen came up big for the 
Green and Gold in the upper weights and 
earned medals in their first MAC 

Scott Coleman battled back from a 
quarterfinal loss to capture a fourth place 
medal at 177 pounds and finish the year 
with a 9-7-1 record. Kurt Handel finished 
fifth at 190 pounds after losing his first 
round match and ended the year with a 
14-10-2 mark. PauLcowderMinished 
fourth at heavyweight after losing his 
rookie season with a 12-14 record for the 

Senior Chris Hoover lost two of his first 
three matches at 167 pounds and was 
eliminated from any medal contention. 
His final record for the season was a 14-

having notified securtiy of this. 4-way 
flashers must be during this time. 

It is important to remember the speed 
limit on campus is 15 MPH and must be 
observed. Pedestrian traffic on campus 
is often heavy, and speed must often be 
adjusted below that to accomodate pe- 
destrians walking through the campus. 

Regarding penalties for illegal park- 
ing/driving, this normally takes the form 
of fmes, although depending on the 
nature and flagrancy of the violation, 
the penalty may result in disciplinary 
action or the vehicle being towed . Tow- 
ing is an extreme measure, an unpleas- 
ant situation for all concerned. 

but it will be used when warranted.

Here's the deal. It's Thursday evening. You, like many other people, are drinking 
some beer. You go out of your room and start walking down the hall, can of beer 
in hand. A security offico* happens to be walking through the dorm and notices the 
can of beer in your hand. The officer reminds you that you can only drink in your 

I am going to set up two hypothetical, though very common situations that ocxur 
at Del Val. In both situations, the student is of the legal drinking age. 

Situation #1 : You are the person in the situation that is described above. Your 
response to the officer's statement is something to the tune of, "You are right officer, 
ril return the beer to my room." The officer leaves, you return the beer to your room, 
and all is well. 

Situation#2: Again, you are the person described in the caning paragn^jh. 
Your response to the officer's statement hovers around, "I can drink my beer where 
ever I like." The officer reminds you of the rules in the stiKlent handbook about the 
alcohol policy. Maybe you've had a few beers ah-eady, are becoming a bit ai^iry. 
and don't really want to be bothered with security. But you stand your ground, md 
will not return your beer to the room. The officer is getting impatient with your 
refusal to cooperate. Things snowball, you're yelling at each other, and the situation 
turns ugly. Security writes you up for a violation of the alcdiol policy. You get a 
notice from the Dean Of Students office to set up an appointment You know what 
it's about. 

Ok, we have two different, yet similar situations here. Both involve alcohol, 
students, and security. One is resolved quickly, clamly, and acceptably to IxMh 
parties. The other is not. In the second situation, the student, for whatever reasons, 
will not abide by the officer's request and the college's policy. Security, doing what 
they are supposed to do, writes up an incident report, and you get to go see the Dean. 
No one is happy abcHit this. You, security, or the Dean. 

Can the second situation be avoided? Absolutely! The outcome of this situation 
is almost totally dependent on your acticms. If you are cooperative and keep a level 
head, the officer should be satisfied. If you get angry and head-strcxig, you're going 
to get written up. 

Now I know sometimes the officer is the aggressor, and in the past it has 
sometimes been the officer that has started some of the problems. If this happens 
to you, just play it cahn, do what is asked of you, and the next day go and talk to the 
manager of Security or the Dean. Remember here, the objective is to avoid 
confrontations and bad feelings. Nobody wants them. With the new "Open Door 
Policy" on campus, you can talk to one of the Deans about what happened. Security 
is not there to harass us. The Dean of Students office is not there to harass us. The 
way things are going to improve at Del Val is if they are talked about. The Deans 
and Security want to work with the students to try to make things easier for everyone.

Getting back to my origional point, 
I really think that 90% oi the time, it is 
the student that will decede the outcome 
of a situation. With the otho- 10%, the 
student may not have been the jn-oblem. 
We as students cm and should work 
with the Dean of Studoits Office and 
Security to solve the prdblcm. 

From The Library 

" Apples and pears, apples 
and pears, 
A collection was started , 
By someone who cared." 

And so it was that the Yakima Valley 
Museum (Washington) (Stained its his- 
torical collection of fruit box labels, 
because one vdunteer noted interest by 
visitors in some apple box labels casu- 
ally placed within another exhibit. 

Fruit box labels have ncH been used 
since the 1940's when pikers switched 
to cardboard boxes. But during the 
wooden box era, e^h of the packing 
houses had its own label. Every few 
years, they would decide upm a new 
one, or a variation of the old one. There 
were about ISO packing houses in the 
Yakima Valley prior to World War 11; 
they accounted for prc^ably as many as 
4000 different box labels. As collectors 
seek them out, they are becomming 

The library will have a sampling of 
colorful apple and pear box labels in 
their exhibit cases frnn August 28 until 
October IS. Our thanks to librarian 
Karen Byrne, formerly of Washington, 
for loaning her unique collection.

Bio Department 
Gets Federal Grant 

Some Del Val students may soon be 
conducting graduate level physiology 
experiments wiUi Dr. Richard Mulstay. 
The National Science Foundation 
gave the college a grant of $6800 to 
apply towards the purchase of a com- 
puter and software that will allow the 
students in Mulstay's human physiol- 
ogy and comparative [^ysiology classes 
to to track and stwe nerve impulses. 

The Science Foundation grant 

IS part of a matdimg grant, which 
means that the college will need to 
contribute $6800 for the computer and 
sdtware. Mulstay says that a campaign 
to solicit contributions from alumni is 
being organized at the present time. 
Mulstay also hopes to be able to 
purchase a printer and equipment to 
convot the numerically stored inpulses 
back into a picture on the color monitor. 
The system should be in use by January. 
Del Val was one of 6S0 institutions 
that received a prnt out of 2200 that 
applied. Herbot Levitan, a director of 
said th^ receiving a grant "..j-eflects 
well on the su{^)ort that the institution is 
giving to scuneone who has good ideas.

College Student Newspaper, has reor- 
ganized and is looking to begin regular 
bi-weekly production next semester. 

A willing and energetic new staff 
has many ideas for ways to make the 
Rampages fun, interesting, infOTmative, 
and valuable to Delaware Valley 

College. As befcne wittt the newspaper, 
we need students to lend a helping hand 
to help us acheive our goals. 
The staff needs writers, photogra- 
phem, and all other types of contributers. 
Students that are active within the Ram-

A campus new^aper is vital to 
good communication and interest 
within the college. We are asking for 
the help and support of the student

remain an entity within Del Val. 

Graduate School?? 

By Dr. Robert Berthoid Jr. 

During one of our Annual Career 
Days, I had the opportunity of spending 
quite a bit of time with 1>. Roger Lo- 
candro, a Cook (Agricultural branch of 
Rutgers University) Dean. During this 
time, we spoke with a number of our 
students. I was surprised to find out 
how many of them had no idea as to how 
to finance a graduate education. 
In the case of Liberal Arts majors - 
including those majoring in Business 
and related fields - most students have 
to fmance their own graduate educa- 
tions. It is true, however, that many 
business graduates receive fmancial 
assistance from employers to 
help underwrite much or all 
of their graduate educations. 

Financing a graduate education is 
frequently a different matter for those 
students majoring in Agriculture and in 
many of the sciences. Many graduate 
school departments offer research as- 
sistantships and/or teaching assistant- 
ships to academically qualified students, 
often with a "B" average being enough 
to qualify. Presently, graduate assis- 
tance is averaging about $10,000 per 
year, plus tuition being waved. All 
assistance is often tax exempt. 
Many of the students who Dr. Lo- 
candro and 1 initally spoke with, said 
that they couldn't afford to go on to 
graduate school after the high costs 
involved with their undergraduate edu- 
cation. However, opportunities for

AIDS in Bucks County 

Second in a series: HIV Counseling and Testing 

"As reported earlier this month, if the 
(Hesent trend continues, there will be 
more AIDS cases reported in Bucks 
County residents in 1991 than in any year 
since the epidemic began," according to 
Lewis D. Polk, M.D., M.P.H.. Bucks 
County Health Department Director. 

"We are again strongly rec(Nnmend- 
ing that those whose sexual or needle 
sharing behaviw has placed them at risk 
few HIV, the vims which causes AIDS, 
seek counseling and testing for HIV in- 
fection." announced Polk. 

Free and anonymous counseling and 
testing is available at the Doylestown 
(345-3894) and Bristol (788-0491) clin- 
ics of the county health (kpartment. Those 
who are or have been at risk should 
seriously consider counseling and test- 
ing. Early detection can result in treat- 
ments that may prolong the length of 
time before symptoms of AIDS develop. 
Those who have engaged in unsafe sex 

practices , have had multiple partners, 
or those who have shared needles in 
drug use are at ri^ for HIV infection. 

Although a pason who is infected 
may go years without developing 
symptoms, the vims can be detected 
through the test within 6 months cnt less 
from the time of infection. Since 
various treatments, available locally, 
are prolonging the period of no ^ynq)- 
toms, it is in the interest of thme 
who have been at risk to 
seek counseling and testing. 

What we are experiencing is the 
development of symptoms in growing 
numbers of persons who woe infected 
with HIV at various points in the 
1990's, according to local health de- 
partment staff. There may be as many 
as 30(X) individuals infected with HTV 
in Bucks County.

men and women are to be found through-

Polk. Nationally, there is m imrtase in

is reflected in dramatic increases 
among women and infants born 
to HIV infected women. 

"We want all residents of Bucks to

Food For Thought: "What 
Makes an Effective Leader?" 

By President George West 

What is leadership? Much has been 
written, many theories advanced about 
what qualities make a good leader. 
Early thinkers on the subject of lead- 
ership believ^ that certain traits were 
common to leaders. Often the list in- 
cluded being ambitious, assertive, deci- 
sive, dominant, energetic, and self con- 
fident. Others, however, argue that 
there is no broad category of character- 
istics that all leaders possess, rather 
that different situations require 
different leadership characteristics. 

One part of the leadership puzzle is 
not open to doubt. To be a leader one 
must have followers. You have no 
power to lead if no one follows. So what 
does it take to get others to follow 
your lead? Where does the power 
to lead come from? 

It is certainly not clear that certain 
traits or situations will always create 
leadership power. 

Rather the pow^ to lead is given to the 
lea(ter by the followo^ when the leader 
meets the needsof the followers. Meet- 
ing follower's needs is the key to lead- 

An effective leader attempts to ful- 
fill the follower's needs; when the fol- 
lowers no longer get their needs met, 
they stop following, the leader is inef- 
fective and is no longer a leader. 

Not to oversimplify, leadership / 
followership is a vay complex subject. 
Leaders must be vCTy perceptive to 
identify needs; leaders may attempt to 
create needs, form other's opinions and 
manipulate the relationship. Some 
have vision to make followers 
aspire to needs that they have not 
yet identified. Others may 
"play to" less laudable instincts. 

What makes an effective leader? 
Meeting followers' needs - as simple 
and as complex as that answer is. 

Cultural Enrichment Still A Requirement 

The office of the Dean of the College 
has received a number of telephone 
calls concerning whether or not Cul- 
tural Enrkhment is still part of the Core 
Curriculum. As stated on page 26 of the 
199 1 - 1 992 D VC Catalog under the de- 
Kription of LA4038 Cultural Enrich- 
ment, "...This is a required component 
of the college's Core Curriculum." 
The basic requirement is that a stu- 
dent must select and attend 14 cultur- 
ally enriching events during their stay at 
DVC. Students are required to present 
I.D. and sign in when attending an event 
in order to gain credit. This program is 
administered by the Liberal Arts De- 
partment Chairman Dr. Ziemer. There 
is a list of approved events published 
each month and special announcements 
are also made. (Editors nrte: C.E. events 
listings are stapled to Student 

Government minutes each month.) 
There is a committee that will consider 
any request to have an event listed as 
culturally enriching. Special events, 
both on and off campus, will be consid- 
ered. Please contact Dr. Ziemer if you 
have any questions regarding the re- 
quirement or a particular event. 
Special Notice: Students planning 
to graduate this May must have fulfilled 
this Core Curriculum requirement. 
Please be absolutely sure with Dr. Zi- 
emer that credit for the course has been 
forwarded to the RegsUTU"'s Office so 
your records are complete. 

The only change in the Core Cur- 
riculum since last year is the elunina- 
tion of DVC Orientation.

AIDS-Thls time, lete take It seriously 

The afternoon of November 6, 1991 brought unexpected 
and tragic news to the citizens of the United States. Magic 
Johnson, the Los Angeies Loiters star player, and a roie 
model for many, many people, announced in a news confer- 
ence that he had contracted the H.I.V. virus and was retiring 
from professional basl(etbaii and would become a spolcesman 
for the AIDS issue. 

Magic Johnson, a wonderfully articuiate person, a star 
both on and off the court, and a person loolced up to by mil- 
lions of peopie, has contracted a virus that proves fatal to all 
infected with it. Fortunately, Magic has not yet developed the 
onset of AIDS, and will work hopefully for many years to 
come on educating the public on the dangers of HIV / AIDS, 
and how the disease can be prevented. 

For all that scientists do not know about the HIV / AIDS 
virus, they do know how to prevent It. Why does it take a 
tragic event like this to wake up the American public? Many, 
many people still l)elieve that AIDS Is a disease that only 
Infects homosexuals and IV drug users. Wrong. The fact is 
that the fastest growing group of people infected with the HIV 
virus are middle-class heterosexuals between the ages of 18- 

We know how to prevent the spread of AIDS. So why do 
people keep getting infected? Why Is unprotected sex still 
the norm? Why do people still use dirty needles? Is it be- 
cause people think it won't happen to them? Is It that they 
don't care? 

The American public first woke up to the issue of AIDS 
with the death of actor Rock Hudson some years back. But 
the generally accepted consensus was that he died from AIDS 
because he was homosexual. AIDS was talked about for a 
while, the media got tired of it, and the American public forgot 
about it. Now, many years later, with M^ic Johnson's story 
the hot news item, AIDS is in the forefront of American con- 
versation. Again. But this time, the victim is a happily married 
man. A person that something like this was "not supposed 
to" have happened to. Will anything be different this time 
around? Will peopie pay attention and change their habits? 

It Is time to take the HIV / AIDS issue seriously. Not just 
talk about it for a few weeks, but do something about it. It's 
time for people to protect themselves and their partners, and 
to educate themselves and their friends. Until scientists 
come up with a vaccine, and that is not expected for at least 
eight years, individuals must stop the spread of AIDS. If 
people don't take AIDS seriously, the next victim may be you.

UFO Sighted Over Water Tower! 

What an assignment! I wk asked to 
inve^igate a repented UFO sighting 
over the Mandeli Hall Water Tower, 
and against my better judgement, took 
the seemingly ridiculous case. 

The reported sightings were called 
into Security in the early morning hours 
of November 21, the night of the full 
moon. Security played them off as 

(M^nk calls, but when their new Caprice 
started to levitate, they didn't take it so 

When it came time to interview the 
officers, there were none to be found. 
The next step, finding the persons who 
reported the sightings, proved much 
easier, although the students who saw the 
UFO would divulge their stories only 

under the condition of anonymity. 

Ttwy reported the craft hovering 
above tte tower as being neon green 
and yellow in color, and shaped like a 
cow's udder. Students reported a light 
humming sound before it transformed 
into what resembled a Budweiser can, 
and disappeared into the moonlit ^y.

AIDS in Bucl(s County 

Third In A Series: Profile of An Infected Student 

Joe (not his real name) is a 21 year old college senior majoring in business 
administration. Joe is a 21 year old college student living with AIDS. He was 
diagnosed in the second semester of his junior year. In 1987, Joe tested positive for 
HIV and in the intervening years has lost 48 pounds. Since 1987 his medical bills 
have exceeded $ 190.000. When he graduates in June he will be dropped from the 
insurance program provided by Joe's father's employer. Joe hopes to get a job with 
a good health insurance plan, but he knows he will have an uphill battle gettii^ a 
job, much less insurance coverage. 

Joe grew up in Montgomery County and lives in Bucks County. As a high school 
student Joe and his buddies celebrated their athletic victories with beer blasts, and 
since girls were often there, "one thing often led to another." Joe claims he was a 
party animal but that he always socialized with "the right group - the in crowd." 
When he was 16, Joe allowed oral sex to be performed by another male just to see 
what it was like. He decided same-sex encounters weren't for him and never 
involved himself in such behavior again. 

Del Val College students who are sexually active must assume that their partner 
could have had previous contacts and would probably NOT know the particular sex 
and drug history of every person with whom they were intimate. Honest and frank 
communication with a prospective sexual partner is a must. And even so, protection 
should be used to protect the health of both partners. A latex condom with a 
spermicide is the best way, barring abstinence, to prevent the spread of sexually 
transmitted diseases; HIV being incurable for the foreseeable future. 

Joe is not asking for sympathy, but he hopes high school and college age 
individuals will learn from his predicament and take steps to protect their lives from 
the ravages of AIDS.

Your Body Under 

By Tina Demenczuk 

What is this thing called stress? Is it 
an unpleasant feeling, or is it the thing 
that causes the feeling. It is the effect 
of fear, pain, anxiety, and yes FINAL 
EXAMS! There is no one thing called 
stress, there are only different kinds of 

Stress happens anytime we must adjust 
or adapt to the changing environment. 
It is not always caused by unpleasant 
events such as: work pressures, marital 
problems, or financial troubles. It can 
also be caused by pleasant activities 
such as; travel, sports, a new job, moun- 
tain climbing, or even dating. Your 
body's suess reaction causes the same 
nervous system arousal , called the auto- 
nom ic nervous system (ANS ), that hap- 
pens during emotion. For example, say 
it was your first time skiing and your 
friends talked you into skiing down 
suicide mountain. At the top of this 
wind-whipped, 90 deg. slope you would 
feel stressed; and we would observe a 
rapid surge in your heart rate, blood 
pressure, breathing, muscle tension, and 
other ANS responses. These types of 
short term stresses can be uncomfort- 
able; however, they rarely do suiy dam- 
age (depending on how you got down 
the slope!). On the other hand, long- 
term physical changes that accompany 
prolonged stress can do much harm. 

Lack of predictability and (M^ssure 
can add to stress which can then become 
a strain on your body and interfere with 
normal immune system functions. Pres- 
sure happens when activities must be 
speeded up, when deadlines must be 
met, when extra work is added unex- 
pectedly, or when a person has to work 
near maximum capacity for Imig peri- 
ods of time (we all know what pressure 
is). How about surviving im 18 credit 
semester with papers— quizzes— tests- 

-and finals, while wortcing two jobs?! 
Talk about stress? Did you ever wwider 
why you seem to get a cold right around 
finals week? People generally fieelmoie 
stress in situations over which they have 
little control. Chronic stress sometimes 
leads to burnout, which is a type of 
emotional exhaustion. 

What about frustration? External 
frustrations come from conditi(Mis out- 
side of the person that block progress 
toward a goal. It is based on delay, 
failure, rejection, loss, or wything that 
can directly block a motive. Repeated 
frustrations can build up until a small 
irritation triggers an unexpect^y vio- 
lent re^mnse. Sound familiar? Con- 
flict is another common stressor. It al- 
most always happens whenever a per- 
son must choose between incompatible 
or contradictory needs, desires, wishes, 
motives, (m* external demamls. Choos- 
ing between marriage and single life, 
college and wcmIc, or study and failure, 
are conflicts most college students face 
sometime in their career. 

Ok. so what really happens to your 
body during any stressful situation? 
Many people find it hard to believe that 
the mind can be a major factor in caus- 
ing or curing disease. No one doubts 
that mental stress can cause physical 
symptoms, but few people know how 
stress actually works. Science recog- 
nizes stress as a {rfiysiological chain 
reaction. Both the nervous system and 
theendocrine glands are involved. This 
respond is triggered by the brain when- 
ever it faces a situation it perceives as 
demanding, unpleasant, and/or threat- 
ening. Nowadays, a stress reaction is 
brought on by less physically threaten- 
ing events than b^k in the history of 
man — from the squeak of chalk on a 
blackboard to losing a job. 

No matter whstt actually causes the 
stress, this is what happens, starting 
from the top: When you are faced with 
an uncomfortable situation, tte hypo-

What's Coming Up In The RamPages 

Next semester the RamPages will start to take shape as a 
jcampus newspaper of which everyone at Del Vat can k>e 
proud. To everyone at Delaware Valley College we make this 
promise: The staff of the RamPages will strive to make the 
paper t>etter than it has ever been in the history of the college. 

in the Issues starting next semester, the RamPages will 
start a student classified section, Dear Aggie column, per- 
sonal / message column, and of course new local advertising. 
In addition, there will be a health /fitness / nutrition column, a 
Isection dealing with campus crime, and a monthly column 
from President West. The paper will continue to provide 
Information on H.I.V. / AIDS. 

This Issue is a first for the RamPages in two ways. First, 
our lead story entitled "UFO Sighted Over Water Tower!", 
shows our willingness to mix humorous campus satire with 
the material normally associated with a campus paper. This 
story should be taken In no other way than as a funny satire. 
We would like to have fun with the paper, and make it fun for 
you. Secondly, the third installment of our AIDS series, 
entitled "Profile of an Infected Student," shows that the Ram- 
Pages will continue to spotlight and provide current and 
accurate information on the problem of AIDS. To stop any 
rumors before they may start, the profiled student Is not a Dei 
Val graduate or a current Del Val student. 

We would like to remind everyone that anybody can submit 
material to the newspaper. Do you have an idea of something 
that you'd like to see in the RamPages? Are you concerned 
about something on campus? We'd like to know! The Ram- 
Pages can be reached at PO Box 917, or you could leave a 
message on our machine at extentlon 2238. If requested, fuJI 
confidentiality will be maintained. We need your help and 
Input to become the best that we can. 

The staff of the RamPages wishes everyone In the Del Val 
Ifamilv a safe and hapov holidav season.

UFO Sighting 

Continued from Front Page 

In all honesty, this reporter was a little 
^eptical upon receiving this assign- 
ment. But I set out to And what 1 could, 
(M* rather couldn't. 

The nrst place I started was La^^ 
Hall. I thought that I'd put an end to 
these silly sightings by getting some 
logical input from the "Top Dogs." On 
what would normally be a busy Monday 
morning at Lasker, I expected to find 
many authoratative figures who would 
make sense out of this unexpected event. 
To no avail, the building was deserted 
and all its occupants had mysteriously 
disappeared. Kind of funny. 1 thought. 

My next mission was to contact the 
campus Star Trek Club for their Enter- 
prising expertise. Based on the color 
and shape of the craft, they concluded 
that this ship came from the udderly 
distant planet of Bovine, located in the 
galax y of Hopps & Barley . 

My final frontier was to go where no 
student has gone before. I dared to 
approach the new elliptically shaped- 
dorm in front of Work Hall, and caught 
up with a student com ing out. It did not 
appear to be your typicalD VC stu(tent. 
My assumption was he had just had 
dinner in the dining hall because he 
looked kind ofgreen and sick. I couldn't 
understand a word he said as he turned 
and ran back inside, obviously startled 
by my presence. 

1 decided to let it go and report my 
fmdings, and ask you, our loyal readers, 
if you have seen anything out of the 
ordinary to report it to the RamPages 
Bureau of Strange and Unusual Events 
at PO Box 917, 6r 345- 1500 ext. 2238. 
By the way. if anycMie knows what 
happened to that new dorm, please let 
us know.

How are Cars 

Made? The Ford 


8y Gary Ncffgrdorf 

On the mcmiing of the 14th of No- 
vember, a pilgrimage was made to one 
of America's last industrial manufac- 
turing facilities, the Ford assemMy plant 
in Edison, N J. 

The plant which (opened in January 
1948 has produced such autos as the 
LincoliVMercury, the FalconAi^omet, 
and the EscortA^ynx. However, this 
plant is most noted for the building of 
the famous FordMustang, between 1965 

and 1971. 

In all, 33 students of Mr. Simone's 
(voducUon class went on tour of the 77 
acre site. At the Fwd plant students 
woe exposed to the assembly line pro- 
cess that is currently jntxlucing the Ford 
Ranger pickup. 

Mr. Fr»l Monzilla, the tour guide, 
explained the assembly line process to 
DVC students starting with the spray 
paintingoperation. In the painting booth 
students were abte to view the Behr 
S|»By robots effortlessly moving and 
changing positions to cover the new 
trucks with a primer coat of paint. 

Next, Mr. Monzilla showed the stu- 
dents anotho- realm in which robotics 
were used; the body area. It was in the 
body area where the DVCcts saw the 
untiring motion and fireworks display 
of robotic spot welders as they con- 
structed the cab and bed of the Ranger. 

Mr. Monzillo, with the encourage- 
ment of students, then entered the trim 
and chassis department. He explained 
that it was in this section that the chassis 
is assembled with all of the necessary 
cwnponents that makeup the Ranger. It 
is along this line that the engine, tires, 
trananission, muffler, and gas tank are 

During the tour, Mr. Monzillo kept 
stressing the point that quality is the 
concern of each individual in the as- 
snnbly plant. 

To ensure that every truck received 
its proper attention a stop button was 
installed at every station. By hitting the 
button a worker has the ability to stop 
the line, for one minute, in order to 
correct a problem. Another interesting 
aspect concerning quality was the phi- 
losophy, that every truck, no matter 
where it was located in the process, 

belonged to a specific individual some- 
where in America. 

The tour ended with our students 
watching a new Ford Ranger rolling off 
the line and passing through its func- 
tional testing every 60 seconds. Not one 
of the trucks failed to start as it passed by 
our students' keen eyes. 


When the semester began there was 
not much representation for the com- 
muter population. Presently we have 
six active reps who are doing a remark- 
able job for you. It has taken us time to 
organize and reach you, but now we are 
on the move. We have taken your 
concerns or ideas and either acted on 
them or referred you to somebody who 
could. A few of our accomplishments 

are: daily use lockers in the game room, 
better parking, a suggestion box, and a 
pizza social. We are presently working 
on several other ideas like another com- 
muter social and a SPRING BREAK ski 
trip to Killington Vt. 

Your responses have generally been 
very good, but in order for us to work for 
you we need your continued input and 
support. These are some of the best 
years of your life. It is up to you to make 
them so. We can only help. You have 
the chance to be different and do things 
you never have done before. So wake 
up and smell the coffee. Get Involved ! 

There are activities you may have 
never thought of trying, such as being 
on the Ram-Pages, the Business Club, 
Blockand Bridle, the Outdoors Club, or 
the Environmental Club. So go for it. 
give one or two a try. There are over 
thirty different clubs on campus. They 
are not time consuming, but be careful. 

they tend to be educational and FUN. 
There is also much in it for you such as 
free food, free trips to new and exciting 
places, new friends(of thesameand,not 
to mention, the opposite sex), and pos- 
sibly a few connections in the job indus- 
try of your fieW of study. Remember, 
"Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained."

Fires: No Joke" 

By Norm Lies, Campus Fire Marshall 

Recently DelVal has had several 
incidents of trash can fires and false fire 
alsffms. Regarding accidental ignition 
of contents of trash cans, please be 
careful of whitt you are putting into such 
a container. Smokers, be careful that 
cigarettes are completely out, or better 
yet, use containers with sand specifi- 
cally for cigarette disposal. 

A trash can fire has a possibility of

Stress-From page two 

thalamus, which is in thecenter of your 
forebrain, releases a chemical called 
corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH). 
This hormone tells the nearby pea-sized 
pituitary gland to release adrenocorti- 
cotropic hormone (ACTH). The ACTH 
then trots on down to the adrenal glands 
that are located atop the kidneys and 
tells them that the body needs a pick- 
me-up. So the adrenals pump corticoid 
and adrenal ine hormones into the blood- 
stream. The most important of these 
hormones is Cortisol (hydrocortisone) 
because it increases sugar levels in the 
blood. Stress causes the adrenals to 
release 20x the usual amount of Corti- 
sol. The process pulls amino acids 
(which are the building blocks of pro- 
teins) out of storage in the muscles and 
other tissues, helps to move them into 
the liver, and there speeds their conver- 
sion into the much needed glucose (a 
sugar needed for energy). Within the 
brain, corticoid and adrenaline act as 
nerve cell stimulants. All of this pre- 
pares the body for an internal war to aid 
in defense by mobilizing supplies. In 
other words, it is a full-circle (feedback) 
process which puts our whole body and 
brain on instant red-alert! 

Hormones are an essential part of 
our defense mechanism, but many of 
the stresses in civilized life do not re- 
quire a physical response. The indis- 
criminate release of hormones that are 
not really needed may have adverse 

(X)nsequences for health. Stressful situ- 
ations can also reduce the body's natu- 
ral defenses against diseases. They can 
influence the immune system by sup- 
pressing the body's built-in killer cells, 
the defenders against invading infec- 
tions, resulting in— the finals weeic cold 

The body also has a kind of back-up 
siystem. The situation is called stress- 
induced analgesia, a pain relief that 
results from extreme stress. In other 
words— the runner's high, or an injured 
soldier's relief euphoria. The explana- 
tion for this is that the brain can make its 
own opiates. These pain relievers and 

mood elevators are called endorphines 
and enkephalins. Both are very similar 
to morphine— but much more power- 
ful! The |m>blem with this back-up 
system is that most of the time the 
body's natural narcotics are not trig- 
gered unless under conditions of ex- 
treme stress. 

OK. Last question— is all stress bad? 
Hans Selye. the Canadian physician 
who first developed the concept of stress 
and stressors, believed that stress often 
provides the motivation and the energy 
needed to achieve success. Anxiety 
about your GPA and graduate school 
may push you to study more, and yes- 
-the fear of poor gndcs can bring on the 
parental stress that may rouse success in 
some students. In spite of all this, don't 
worry, if you are fit. and nothing else is 
seriously wrong in your life, you can 
probably handleagoodamountof frus- 
tration, delay, unfairness, misfortune 
etc.with no problem. Find a safe and 
constructive way to vent your everyday 
stressors. It does help! (jOODLUCK 

A Better line-up 
tills Season 

By Jen Nickels 

With winter on its way, the basket- 
ball team at Delaware Valley College 
blows in. This season promises mwe 
excitement and skill than the previous 

The team practices six days a week, 
Sunday through Friday from either 4-6 
or 6-8. The Players expect that there 
will be a definite improvement in their 
skill and competitiveness this season. 

The returning players say that the 
new freshman recruits are looking 
good and have a lot of talent. FixKn what

for them to pick a starting line-up due to 
the promising new talent.

What is a sciiool newspaper? It's a 
vehicle for you, the students, to com- 
municate your ideas and concerns to 
your peers as well as ihe administra- 
tion and faculty. It is a repon written 
to inform you of campus activities, 
events, gossip, and general news within 
the campus community. The paper is 
a way for clubs and groups to advertise 
for members and to infomi of events 
and trips. Overall, a college newspa- 
per is the nucleus of the campus. It is 
what all students should center on to 
become involved and informed. A 
%hool paper can be a catalyst for an 
active campus environment. 

At present, the RamPages is going 
tlvough some major changes. Our 
goal is to be informative, interesting, 
creative, and entertaining. In order to 
do this and satisfy the campus needs, 
we need an active staff. Active contri- 
bution from members of the campus is 
what makes an exciting paper and an 
exciting paper can lead to an exciting

Smith Remembered 

(lOAgg 1930 -24 Jan 1992) 

When I look back upon Uic last 18 
years of teaching here at DVC, one 
thought comes to mc: I was glad of ilic 
presence of Sally Smith, on campus. 
She made it a better place. She was. .'uid 
is, a source of con\lort to me. 

-Edw;u"d O'Brien. Jr. 

A Dedicated Teacher 

I appreciated Sally's sincerity luid 

IV.'uikness; she never dodged .'ui issue 

or a debate. 

Dr. Rich:ud Ziemer 

We ;ue all saddened by the passing 
ot Sally Smith. She was a valued mem- 
ber ol ihe English Dept. Faculty since 
1972. Sally si;uied in 1972 when il was 
die General Studies Division. 

Sally w;is a dedicated teacher who 
always had time for her students. One 
of her fomicr students on learning of 
her death said. "HI never forget her, 
she was the one wlio taught. me how to 

No matter what private battles Sally 
was fighting, she always had a smile or 
hello for you. 

A Word For Sally 

Robert Frost said that courage was the 
greatest of all virtues because, withbut it, 
no one would have the strength to attain 
any oUier virtues. Sally was one of the 
most courageous people I have ever 
known, not least in her long battle with 
cancer. She always said what she be- 
lieved, never backed down from a fight, 
and, when defeated, left the field upright 
imd whole. Others followed her because 
of this quality. This is rare; it will be 
missed; she will be remembered.

Letter to the Editor 

To the Editor. 

I am responding to "Profile of An Infected Student ". I feel that a more appropriate 
scenario could have been provided. The issue of the student, Joe. having a same- 
sex encounter only once when he was 1 6 and not engaging in "such" a behavior again 
implies he coniraaed tlie AIDS virus through homosexual contact, even though the 
probability of contracting HIV through oral sex (especially if received) has the least 
risk. This article only enforces the myiii that AIDS is a gay disease. It is not! The 
rale of heicrosexuids wiiii AIDS has jumped 40% within just one year, not to mention 
the number infected with HIV. 

Statistics say that 10% of the population in the United States identify themselves 
as homosexual, so look around because that means at least 100 people on this campus 
are gay. The simple fact that the editorial had to add a "disclaimer" about the profiled 
student in order to stop rumors shows just how small minded people on this campus 
are, including faculty and^staff. The key to overcoming these prejudices is through 
education ,so I hope everyone attends the AIDS seminar on January 29 at 7:00 PM 
in the A.P.R. 1 

Name with held upon request 
Editors Note: 

Those who ;uc knowledgeable about ADS know that in this case p-ofile, there 
is no way the student could have contracted the disease through the 'same-sex ' 
encounter, especially since he was on the receiving end. This was corroborated by 
the Bucks County Depaiiment of Health's AIDS Education Director. Chris Whitney 
(who incidentally spoke at the AIDS seminar on January the 29th.). In this case 
profile, the student contracted the disease through heterosexual contact. 

This issue was discussed by the editorial board before publication, and it was 
unanimously decided to print the profile as it appeared. We do not feel the article 
implies the student contracted AIDS through the same sex-encounter, or errforces the 
myth Uiai AIDS is a gay disease. The three previous installments of "AIDS InBucks 
County" have dealt exclusively with education on ways to preveni the spread of 
heterosexual AIDS. Until the Scminiu on January 29, the RamPages had been the 
only source ol AIDS education on campus. We applaud Dean Phyllis Sheilds for 
orgiuiizing ilie prognuii on AIDS, and hope to continue seeing programs of this sort. 
Anyone wishing more information on HIV / ADDS should contact the Bucks County 
Department of HealUi at 345-3318.

Welcome Back 

Alcohol and Drinking Gunes 

The Collegiate Journal 

Welcome back! The campus is alive 
wiih exp«;taiions and excitement for a 
new semester. Since classes have just 
begun, there is little work and lots of free 
time to socialize with new friends and 
get reacquainted with old ones. When 
people come together at this time of the 
year, they often consume liuge ;unounis 
of alcohol. At parties, tailgates .-uul 
reunions, or before going out, drinking 
games are usually played since they 
intoxicate quickly and heavily. Unfor- 
tunately, this {n^ctice sometimes ends 
in tragedy. , ' 

Students are motivated to drink for 
different reasons. In a recent study by 
Ian Newman, Ph.D., at the University of 
Nebraska-Lincoln, 64 percent of stu- 
dents said drinking made it easier to 
socialize. Freshman participated in 
heavy alcohol consuming games nearly 
twice as often as the rest of tlie campus, 
suggesting that drinking games helped 
them overcome difficulties in esiiiblish- 
ing new relationships. Drunkenness in- 
hibits whatever makes socializing dif- 
ficult, and meeting the opposite sex 
seems easier at a party scene. 

A second motive for excessive drink- 
ing is simply to gel oneself or someone 
else drunk. In the Nebraska study. 92 
percent reported playing drinki ng giuiies 
"to get drunk" and "to do it quickly." 
And 75 percent played drinking games 
to intoxicate someone else; one-tliird 
specifically had designs on the opposite 

Observing college parties, research- 
ers found that both male and female 
game-players drank approxihiately one 
and a half 12 ounce beers in 1 5 minutes- 
equaling an intoxicating six beers an 
hour. Female nongame-players drank 
only one-third a beer, while male non-

Alcohol (continued from page 3) 
players drank half a beer in the same 15 
minute period. Clearly, drinking games 
markedly increase alcohol consump- 
tion, which in turn increases the risk for 
serious problems. 

Women seem to place themselves at 
special risk by excessive drinking ;uid 
using drinking games as ;in aid for 
socializing, especially considering the 
increased incidence of date rape, preg- 
nancy, and sexually uansmiiied dis- 
eases associated with drunkenness. The 
Nebraska study found women tended to 
increase their consumption more Uian

double jeopardy, considering women 
are more vulnerable to alcohol's toxic 
effects due to biochemical differences 
thai don'i allow alcohol digestion in 
tlieir stomachs. Nevertheless, anyone is 
at risk. 

Every college student knows that 
the consequences of excessive drinking 
include nausea/vomiting, "the spins," 
staggering, stupor and severe harigovers. 
But there are other more serious conse- 
quences. On college campuses, alcohol 
is involved in two-thirds of all violent 
behavior, half of all physical injuries 
and one-third of all academic and emo- 
tional problems. Unfortunately, alco- 
hol causes lower inhibitions and greater 
emotional swings, creating a state where 
people take healtii-threatening risks. 
"Beer-goggling" with previously un- 
known partners has resultKl in unwanted 
pregnancies and sexually U"an.smitted 
diseases, including herpes. HIV, and 
AIDS. Inebriated students have died or 
been maimed in auto accidents or step- 
ping in from of subways and cars, fall- 
ing from buildings, bridges and trees, 
and choking on vomit. The occurrence 
of alcohol -related deaths juid serious 
injuries remains exucmely high. Every 
ye;u- :uioihcr siudcni wiili everyiJiing to 
live for ends up on iJie obituary page. 

If you choose to drink alcohol, drink 
it responsibly. Know your limits, and 
sip a drink slowly over a long period of 
time. Eating food while drinking slows 
the absorption of alcohol, butsalty foods 
like chips, pretzels, cheese and pizza 
will also make you thirstier. Avoid 
suaighi shots of liquor iuid "chugging" 
beer. If your group is raveling by car, 
appoint a designated driver, be firm in 
your decision not to drink. 

When you find yourself in a situa- 
tion where someone has consumed ex- 
cessive amounts of alcohol, there are a 
few guidelines to follow. Never argue 
with a diunk or be judgmental, but help 
decrease the person's ini.ike and dis- 
courage him or her from taking unnec- 
ess;u7 risks. If ilie individual needs to 
vomii, ihc silling position with liic head 
down is appropriate. II tiic person has 
passed out or wiuiis lo lie down, lying on 
tlie right side is best. This promotes 
emptying of ilie stomach luid protects 

the airways if he or she vomits. Never 
lie a drunk person on the back, since he 
or she might aspirate stomach contents 
into lungs. Always loosen tight clothing 
around the neck and waist, and do not 
leave an intoxicated person alone. Most 
important, seek medical help if ihc'pcr- 
son is seriously intoxicated. You'drather 
see your friend wake up with a saeam- 
ing hangover than not at all.

Sign of the Times 

Beginning in Spring '92, the Arbore- 
tum will be embarking on an exciting 
new signage and relabeling {nvgram. 
According to Arboretum Director Dr. 
John Martin, current embossed metal 
labels will continue to be used across 
the Arboretum collections, however, 
these will shortly be joined by new 
easy -to- read engraved display labels. 
A recently purchased machine will 
allow in-house production of weather- 
proof plastic labels which will help 
make Henry Schmieder Arboretum 
collections even more useful educa- 
tionally and horticulturally. The Ar- 
boretum is also in the process of pur- 
chasing a new sign-making system. 
This sign construction system will al- 
low the Arboretum to create informa- 
tional, identification and directional 
signage to aid visitors in better utiliz- 
ing and enjoying the Arboretum. The 
new signage should be visible by the 
summer of '92. Photoengraved labels 
and signs used to designate d^ication 
and memorials in the Arboretum will 
continue to be used, and the Arbore- 
tum hop^ to increase the use of tl^se 
highly educational labels. 

The objective of the Arboretum is 
that all plants in the collection will be 
labeled with a metal embossed collec- 
tions label, and in addition, either an 
engraved plastic display label or a 
photoengraved dedication label. Fur- 
thermore, the Arboretum hopes to have 
signage which identifies all of our 
garden and collection areas, all col- 
lege buildings, and signs that aid and 
guide visitors so they may more fully 
enjoy the Arboretum. 

Volunteers Needed: 

With all the new gardens, increased 
tours, and expanded community out- 
reach, the Arboretum's small staff is 
spreading itself mighty thin these days. 
Maybe you can help. Volunteers are 
needed to conduct toure, assist in our 
greenhouses, make plant labels, and 
adopt gardens like our herb garden. If 
you are interested, please contact the 
Director's office at (215) 345-1500 
extension 2244. Your help can make 
a difference.

? Did You Know ? 

Effects of C02 

By J en Orlowski 
Did you know that: 

1 .) Any activity that bums fossil fuels 
(liice coal, gas or oil) to make elecu'ic- 
ily, heat or power also sends C02 up 
into the atmosphere? 

2.) Each car releases an average of 
5lons of C02, and that Americans waste 
up to 2 billion gallons of gasoline each 
year due to under-inflated tires? 

3.) Americans are responsible for 
pxxlucing more C02 than any other 
nation, a quarter of the total produced? 

4.) If you replace an incandescent 
tHilb with a compact fluorescent bulb; 
you will save the equivalent of 600 
pounds of coal over the life of the bulb! 

5.) Cutting down or burning u^ees 
reduces the earth's ability to absorb 
C02 before it rises to join the green- 
house blanket? 

The Human Body 

By Tina Demenciiik 
Did you know that: 

1.) The brain accounts for about 2 
percent of our body weight. It uses 20 
percent of all the oxygen we breathe, 20 
percent of the calories in the food we 
eat, and about 15 percent of our bodys 
blood supply. It has more than 100 
billion nerve cells and over 100 trillion 
nerve cormections; so that the intercon- 
nections in the brain are virtually limit- 

2.) For supporting weight, the human 
bone is stronger than granite. A block of 
bone the size of a matchbox can support 
10 tons, 4 times more than concrete. 

3.) The adult body contains approxi- 
mately 650 muscles, more than 100 
joints and 50,000 miles of blood vessels 
and capillaries. An adult has 206 bones, 
nearly half of them in the hands and 
feet. A baby has 300 bones at binh. but 
94 fuse together during childhood. 

Do you think that there is a laclc of enthusi- 
asm for events and activities on campus? 
What can be done to qhange this? 

Oawn Berkenbush '92 

Wendy MeUck '95 

"Yes, find something for 
students to do weekends so 
they'il stay on campus. We 
need activities to get people 
more active in what goes on, 
such as having iive bands." 

"Yes!! Freshman and 
Seniors seem most active. 
Staff and Faculty sh6uld t)e 
? more enthusiastic and interact 
? more. It is a small ^hool so it 
is hard to get large groups to- 
gether because of the variety 
of interests." 











"Yes, more students need 
to get involved. We need 
better selections of activities, 
more of what students want. 
The clubs need more activity.' 

"Yes, there are not enough 

activities during the week 

everything is on Thursdays & 
Fridays. We need more inter- 
esting things to keep students 
on campus weelcends. Better 
advertising for events." 

"All of my friends are at 
home. When classes are done 
I want to go home, not hang 
around on campus."

AIDS Isn't Danger-

In March of 1991, a 17 year old 
Cooperstown High School Senior

Henry revealed his secret of six years

his peers about iJic facts mb realities of 
a disease he knows Ironi personal expe- 

"Tljerc is a feeling of immoilalily. of 
invulnerability iliai 1 sense about my 
cla.s.smates ;md peers. AIDS isn't my 
disease. AIDS isn't a gay disease. AIDS 
is our di«;, and I need your help!" 

Since his announcement, Henry has 
spoken to iliousands of people. High

and community .service groups, have

A few changes have already been 

implemented for this semester. The lot

roadway has been widened to accom- 
modate two-way traffic. These modifi- 
cations have also provided some addi- 
tional spaces. 

Segal lot-Student vehicles were 
penmitted to park here evenings and 
weekends with the stipulation that they 
be moved by 7AM any working day. 
Too often this was not the case, making 
the lot unavailable for staff parking. 
Therefore, student parking in Segal lot 
is permitted on weekends only, from 
6PM Friday until 10PM Sunday. Any 
student vehicle in Segal lot other than 
these times is subject to ticket and /or

By Paul E. Schrwkter 

Why?: Every ten years colleges must 
undergo a reaccreditation process. This 
process is necessary for a college to 
maintain its excellence in standards. It 
is a aedibility statement specifying that 
the particular institution being reac- 
credited is meeting its standards. That 
is, "are we (DVC) doing what we say we 
are doing?" The process is an internal 
evaluation by joint committees of stu- 
dents, faculty, administration, and staff. 

Who?: The reaccreditation is directed 
by the Middle States Association of 
Colleges and Schools. Through guide- 
lines set up by Middle States, the inter- 
nal committees study and record their 
findings on all aspects of the college. 
Upon completion, the internal commit- 
tees will hand over their reports to 
Middle States who will then complete 
their evaluation of DVC. 

What?: The purpose of this evaluation 
is to have an honest , yet critical over- 
view of what changes need to be. or 
could be made to imp-ove DVC. It's an 
easy way for us to identify our weak- 
nesses. This process is unique in that no 
other institutions, except educational 
establishments, evaluate themselves in 
this way. Identifying our weaknesses is 
the first step in turning them intb 

How?: Reaccreditation is an enormous 
undertaking and requires u great deal of 
support from everyone. A Steering 
Committee has been selected, and 
groups of task forces are being formed 
to examine areas suggested by Middle 
States. The only way this is going to 
work is if you, the student, the em- 
ployee, or the administrator, get in- 

REASONS: This gives you an opportu- 
nity to make changes in areas you see 
necessary. In essence, "Make a differ- 
ence in what you believe". In addition, 
the experience of performing a sell 
evaluation like this is invaluable to your 
future, whether it be here at DVC or 
elsewhere. You owe it to yourself to 
make things the best they can be. Help 
us "Do the Right Thing Right!"

Students Not Afraid Of The Dark 

1 992 Flower Show Display is Underway 

Night can be scary, it can be lonely 
and desolate. For some, however, it can 
be romantic, restful, and beautiful; aglow 
with the sights, sounds, and fragrances 
of the garden in twilight. At the 1992 
Philadelphia Flower Show, the students 
of £>el Val will show that they are not 
afraid of the dark as they stage one of 
their most ambitious exhibitions to date, 
"Night Sensations-Discovering Light 
After Dark". 

The DVC exhibit, staged in con- 
junction with the Henry Schmieder 
Arboretum will illustrate how to design 
a landscape which can be more fully 
enjoyed during leisure evening hours. 
Construction techniques, lighting tips, 
plant selection (Klvice, examples of sen- 
sory use, colorful ideas, and useful 

information will help visitors discover 
the sensations of the landscape after dark. 

According to Dr. Jolui Martin, Direc- 
tor of the Henry Schmieder Arboretum 
and Chairman of tlie college's Ornamen- 
tal Horticulture and Environmental De- 
sign programs, the 1992 DVC exhibit 
will be chock-full of practical informa- 
tion of interest to all home owners and 

Visitors will enter the exhibit through 
a g;irdcners shed, which will serve as an 
education center juid will feature a rear- 
screen projection ilieaier. Tlie Uieater 
will preseni huulscapc lighting cx:unples 
and consuiiction/installation techniques. 
Informational signage will help visitors 
better understand the rest of the exhibit 
and the basic elements of successful 


More than 30 students have been 
working on the exhibit since August. 
The design, construction, plant forc- 
ing, and educational signage for the 
exhibit are all being done by students. 
The 1992 Philadelphia Flower Show 
marks the 42nd year Delaware Valley 
College students have exhibited. The 
1992 .show, "Horizons for Discovery", 
runs from March 8 through March 15 
at the Philadelphia Civic Center. 

Discounted tickets for the Phila- 
delphia Flower Show are available for 
Arboretum members. Tickets may be 
purcha.sed at the Lasker Hall recep- 
tion desk. For more infomiation call

Trustees meet; discuss 

budget, land donation, 

By Adam Kaplan 

and class of '96 

The BoaKi of Trustees of Dela- 
ware Valley College met on Sat- 
urday, February 29, to discuss the 
upcoming budget, the donation of 
land to the college, and {n-ojec- 
tions for Ibe class of 1996. 

Fmance Committee Chaimian 
Mark Hankin reported that the 
1992-93 budget was not yet com- 
plete, and the full budget would 
be approved within two weeks. 
Uankin also.repgited to the board 
that the budget of 1991-92 was 
better thai had been hoped fen*. 

Part of titt new budget that was 
approved by a voice vote in- 
cluded a 5% salary increase for 
facuhy at Del Val. Hankin also 
proposed tfatt if there was a ms- 

plus in the new budget, that it be 
distributed equally to the employ- 
ees. After mudi discussion, and 

reservations expressed by two 
trustees, the moticm was tabled 
for further di^nission. 

President Emeritus Josh Feld- 
stein. Chairman of the Admis- 
sions, Marketing, and Student Life 
Committee, repealed that the out- 
\ock for the Class of 1996 is vay 
good. Feldstein said that as d 
February 29, 1992, the admis- 
tio^'Kad received Moi^ at^lica- 
tions than in all of the previous 
year. FeM^in also rqKxted that 
he thinks tlw i»rojected goal of 47S 
new students will be realized for 
the class of '96. 

Housing promises to a major 
problem next year, Feklstein re- 
ported. Del V^ has beds for ap- 
proximately 832 people.

President Gewge West an- 
nounced that the college has re- 
ceived a donaticm of 1 74 acres of 
agricultural land. The pr(^)erty is 
in Montgomery County, spptoid- 
mately seven miles frmn campus 
and includes two houses,a few 
bams and agricultural equipment. 

As part erf the agreement, the 
donor, who at this time wishes to 
remain anonymous, will continue 
to live in the main house. The 
agreement also stipulates that a 
museum portraying early 1900's 
farm operations be housed on 20 
allotted acres. President West 
personally commeiKfed Josh Fekl- 
stein on his years of work for 
making this donaticm a reality.

It began July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia when the Declaration of 
Independence was signed. For the fu-st time we, as Americans, separated 
ourselves from tht rest of the world. Like the new kid on the block, we 
had to prove we were the strongest and the best At the turn of the 20th 
century, during the height of the Industrial Revolution, we began an 
imperialistic movement to influence the world with the "American 
way." Our involvement in WW 1 gained us respect worldwide. We re- 
emphasized our position 25 years later upon entering WW II. Through- 
out this span of time American products md workmanship also gained 
worldwide respect Without a doubt, we were the strongest and the best. 
We created a stroi^ sense of national pride. So what happened to us 
between then and now? What has happened to the respected American 
products and workmanship? 

Is it possible we grew too quickly and levned too little humility 
(hiring our first 150 years of life as a CQiuitt^? U seems to me th^ over 
these past 50 years we have been shooting our mouths off about American 
product supremacy with little evidence to back it up. It's fine to say 
you're the best as long as you really ai^. Our track naxd for quality 
I^oducts, such as autcnnobiles and stereos, has taken a sciious slide over 
the past 40 years. In addition, our present economic situation is not 
conducive to boasting. The questi<Mi I am presfcnflngis'flfirt^^,1» 
Americans, have the right to become angry with the recent statements 
made by the Japanese about the American woricer, <)r are we hiding 
behind false pride? 

On January 20, Yoshio Sakurachi, one of Japans most senior politi- 
cians stated that "America's economic troubles were rooted in a work 
force *too lazy' to compete with Japm, and... one of the US's biggest 
(R'oblems is 1/3 of its workers can not evoi read." The natural ^nerican 
reaction was resentment to these comments. People smashed J!q)anese 
cars, burned a cross in front of an Asim restaurant and some peqple have

g(»ie as far as threatening the Jipuiese Ammcan Citizens LeagiK. 
ReacticHis such as these are not only intolerahle, but they are 

People are reacting without thinking. If we would just slow 
down and analyze what was said and why, po'haps we would find 
a method that would bring our economy to the forefront again. Are 
American workers lazy? I don't believe our workers are any lauer 
than those in mher ccmntries, but I do believe there is a {s-oblem 
with the basic American woik ethic. The general attitude of the 
American worker is "if you pay me more I'll work harder", instead 
of "I'll work harder so I can earn more pay." We're caught in (he 
"what's in it for me syndrrane." The straigth of our country lies 
in its work f(nx:e and the soma- we realize that and start sui^cMting 
our country in our work pla(%, the sooner we will be able to compete 
successfully in all world markets. As for the illiteracy statement, 
national statistics show that 5% of the Amoican work force is 
totally illiterate. These statistics do not address the bordo: line 
minimally trainable workers. This whole issue can't be ignor^, 
it's aproblem we have to deal with. As far as I can tell, the Japanese 
statemaits seem to be supported by some fairly strong evidence. 
Our current economic situation is our own fault. Why should we 
blame them for showing ys our shortcomings? Since no one is 
quite sure how to fix wir economy perhiqps we should be objective 
and take some criticism as advice. Where do our economic 
jffoblans stem from? How about from each of us? How many 
Japanese products do you own? Cars, stereos, VCR's, cameras, 
etc. Now, why do you own these products? Most likely its because 
the Japanese emphasize quality in their workmanship and are 
somewhat competitive in [n-icing. The Japanese goals are attain- 
able because their work ethic is geared toward their work place, 
their country, and their pride. Perhi^s it is time we take a page from 
their history book, as they did from ours after. 1945, and learn from 
their successes while correcting our mistakes. 

As the future leaders of our counU7 it's time we learned a little 
humility and looked at ourselves in a more objective light. We need 
to take this sense of false pride and make itreal. Our futures depend 
on our being tough on ourselves, not our critics.

Safeguarding Ocean Environments 

By Jen Orlowski 

The world's oceans cover 7 1 % 
oS the Earth's surface and are an 
immense repository of biological 
diversity. Yet for many, the ma- 
rine wo-ld is too (rften "out of 
sight and out of mind." Although 
scientists acknowledge that we 
probably know less about the 
marine would than we do about 
the complex dynamics of rain for- 
ests, scioitists also have increas- 
ing reascm to beUeve that our 
oceans are in serious trouble. 

In recent years, the problems 
c»ised by human activities in 
marine environments have inten- 
sified, and there are many warn- 
ing signs of widespread ocean 
degredatirai. Fish stocks with sig- 
nificant commercial value are 
declining and are sometimes too 
contaminated by toxic chemicals 
to eat. Uiwxplained declines in 
marine mammal and sea-bird 
populations, along with dying 
coral reefs and beaches fouled by 
oil and medical wastes, are an 
increasingly comm(Hi phenom- 
ena wordlwide. Pollution, poorly 

planned coastal (teveloixnent, 
and overuse of marine resources 
are taxing the ecological balance 
of ocean ecosystems, a situati(m 
that demands our attention aiui 
immediate acticm. 

By any measure, healthy 
coastal and marine ecosystems 
are important to our quality of life 
and critical to our survival . Oceans 
provide food for our world's popu- 
lation and also play a oitical role 
in regulating the global climate. 
It is our mission to protect the 
diversity and abundaiK:e of life on 
Earth. This mission is nowhere 
mo-e important than in the marine 
environment. Nations must begin 
to practice betto- stewsffdship over 
coastal and marine environments.

Ths James A. Micfaener Art 
Museum opened in 1 988 as a last- 
ing cultural tribute to one (rf* the 
town's favorite sons. It was de- 
signed as a museum for fine arts, 
wbich focuses on works of Ameri- 
can artists through its permanent 
collection and changing exhibi- 
tions. The site itself dates back to 
1813 and was (m(x the Buckie 
County jail. The prison yard, now 
acourtyard, is encircled by a sculpt' 
ture garden, and the former guards 
house is an exhibition gallery. 

There are three exhibitions con- 
tinuously showing. The History 
of Art in Bucks County, can be 
viewed through 1992. It is a siff- 
vey exhibition of the rich art his- 
tory of Budcs County from 1850 
to 1950. It includes luminaries 
like Edward Hicks, Daniel Gar- 
ber, Edward Redfield and Charles 
SheelCT. CluingingyisioDS of the 
American Landscape can be 
viewed until Mardi22, 1992. This 
important exhibitim will contrast 
the romantic pictures of jAcAog- 
rai^o's who see the landscape as 
a source of fear and threat as a 
result of global pollution. Sich ein

can also be viewed until Mardi 
22, 1992. This exhibition con- 
tains etchings by the German-Aus-

The music is absolutely beau-

If you have been complaining about the stale and tired music that 
lacks any thought being (dayed on meat radio stations, then you need 
some Ween. What is Wera? Ween is a two-monbered band with an 
ioaedible guitar player and a wacky and imaginative vocalist. Gene and 
Dean Ween of New Hope, PA have received their inspiration to create 
their own breed of music from the god Boognish. Ween's latest album. 
The Pod, was reteased a few months ago on Shimmy Disc. 

This album is jam-packed with an intense blend of frightening yet 
sweet son^. A pork roll, egg and cheese (nnelete seems to be a central 
idea running throughout the album as well as Mexican food. Dr. Rock 
and Captain Fantasy »re reminders di what real rock 'n' roll is all about. 
By the way girls, don't get too offended by how you may permve the 
way Ween thinks i^out women. Maybe they've beoi hurt bdore and are 
just being sensitive, ami by the way they're cute. 

Ween just finisl«d putting together anoth« album whidi we can 
expect to see in the near future. Ween is j»-escntly touring Europe and 
will be touring the United States this sumn^-. Try to see them live, it's 
a show you won't mind paying a few bucks to see. Their first album, God 
Ween Satan, and Tlie Pod are available at Now and Then Records and 
Spinster's Records, both located in New Hope.

To ThB Editor: 

rm writing to ymi (m a very important healtth issue: our un- 
nourishing Dining Hall food and how it's a hazard to our health. 
No matter what colle^ one attends, there's always complaints about 
the cafeteria food, but I feel here at Del Val the complaints are justified. 
Just ask the nurses how many studoits complain of upset stomachs after 
eating at the Dining Hall. A lot of us aid up with indigestion that Digel, 
PeiAo Bismol, or Mylanta combined can't cure! It is all that fat and grease 
that's wrecking havoc on our systems. 

Sometimes the food we get is stale. Aren't things like this supposed 
to be monitored? What about quality control? Case in point; last wMk 
a frieiMl of mine got a piece of chocolate cake that was so hard you 
couldn't cut it with a knife! Just the other day the orange juice was rancid! 

We are paying $1600 a semester for our meal plan, and it does not 
seem like we are getting our money's worth! I heard that we are getting 
our food from su^^osedly the best food catering business in the area. If 
this is so. then what's the problon? Why aren't the meals mwe appealing 
and appetizing? Why are we getting greasy and stale food, and why are 
we getting practically the same menu every week? 

I know for a fact that the food cmunittee had a meeting last month 
with the food service director, and nothing materialized. What's next? 
A student walkout ot a boycotting of the Dining Hall? It wcM-ked back 
in 1982. Do we really have to have a repeat command performance 
before these i)eople realize how disgruntled we really are? 

Name Withheld Upon Request 


To the Editor: 

In the news lately there has 
been considerable coverage of 
sexual harassment stories. Wil- 
liam Keimedy Smith, Anita Hill, 
and Mike Tyson have brought a 
new focus to the male-female re- 
lationship and what is or may be 
construed as harassment. 

It should be obvious, when 
unwanted physical contact is 
farced upon a person of the (^po- 
sete sex, that harassment and pos- 
sibly acriminal act has taken place. 
We are all outraged when we be- 
lieve a p«^on of power or infhi- 
ence manipulates by means of 
that influence, to extricate him- 
self from charges of sexual mis- 
conduct. It is far less obvious 
when sexual harassment of a ver- 
bal nature takes place. When that 
harassment takes phce in a class- 
room on campus, propoagatedby 
tiie instructor, (who must suspect 
that his position within the scti- 
donic community allows or at 
least protects this conduct,) is 

Lecture material interpreted 
vrith sexual innuendo, jokes of a 
nstture that degrade women, el- 
evate male prowess, or use female 
anatomy as a punchline not only 
do not belong in the classromn, 

but set a poor example of what is 
to be considered "£ux:eptable 

behavior" on campus. 

A professor at an institution is 
responsible for more than the syl- 
labus and course outline. He is 
charged with the responsibility of 
shaping and molding the minds of 
his students. In effect, he is his 
tx'others keeper and should be 
responsible for his actions and 
comments. A wry "that's just the 
way I am," offered as a justifica- 
tirai f cr improper behavior is sim- 
ply not acce^Kable. 

It is men or less common 
knowledge that women do have to 
compete in a job market that is 
male dominated. They will be 
subjected to covert and overt 
sexual harassment, glass ceilings, 
and lower salaries. Do they really 
need to be exposed to the same 
treatment within these hallowed 
halls of learning? 

A student should not have to 
pick up 1^ exam from the lap of 
her instructor. Sbt should not 
flush with embarrassment because 
of crude comments and cliches 
directed at her. When a joke told 
in class is in sufficient bad taste to 
embarrass the entire room, should 
students really have to be sub- 
jected to it? 

Delaware Valley College 
counsels students for drug abuse, 
alcohol abuse, and date rape. The 
college requires employment 
within the maJOT field of study, 
and cultural enrichment seminars 
to graduate. Tl^se programs are 
designed to expose students to 



.Oi.r Statti Furesier 

experiences that will help shape 
them into better people. What 
lessons do students receive out* 
side of the formal lesson plan? 
What subconscious signals are 
being received, conflicting les- 
sons being learned? Is it okay to 
act one way as long as you speak 
the accepted line? 

Harassment is not easily de- 
fined. It is obvious that a joke to 
one person can be insulting to 
another. Actions become harass- 
ment when a pers(m feels as if 
they have beccane the brunt of 
anoth^'s indiscretions. In that 
case, recourse should be investi- 
gated. Students have a right to 
expect a high- brow education in 
the classroom, not low -brow hu- 
mor. Norshouldtheybeafraidfor 
their grade point average. If a 
student feels conmients directed 
at her by a professes- are inappro- 
{niate, that student should be able 
to resolve the p-oblem through 
channels that are outside of the 
"college buddy system." 

If Delaware Valley College has a 
policy for harassment in the class- 
room, it should be made clear to 
the studoit body because sexual 
harrassment takes place not oily 
in Washingt(Hi, D.C. and Palm 
Beach, it happens here. It should

To the Editor: 

My problem has to do with the sign I see on the school stOTe ahnost 
every day I go by. You know, that sign, "No cash checking, no 
exceptions." I cannot believe that with this sign up constantly, nmiors 
have been that the school has decided not to have a MAC machine 
provided on campus. I do not think the school is sraing the needs of the 
students. A friend of mine had to cancel a trip to visit his family in Bostcm 
because of tl^ fact that he could not get access to his money and in turn 
could not pay for the airline tickets. He has a choking account in his 
hometown bank and therefore ccnild not go to the bank to get funds. 

I don't know if the MAC machine costs money, but if it does and the 
school cannot afford it, then get the school store's moiey situation 
straightened out so that we can get to our money. 1 hate to compare 
our school to others, but I have talked to countless friends in both state 
and out of state, public and private schools and none of them can believe 
that we cannot get to mir funds at DVC. 

Robert Kanzler 

Editors Note: 

The manager of the school store addressed the recent problems 
with check cashing in a small mailer that was distributed to all 
students last week. The administration has heard of the need for a 
MAC machine , and one will be installed in the Student Center during 
spring break. 

To the Editor: 

I have been a resident of Doylestown and the surrounding area for 19 
years now. I have seen it transform from the beautiful, natural, relatively 
undevelq)ed sub-urban country which it is renowned for, to an over- 
populated, overdeveloped, congested, ugly, aiKl urban- like county we 
now know. I realize that some development is a good sign. A sign of 
growth and prosperity, but where does it end? Useless and totally 
uimecessary shq)ping centers are shooting up where there once stood a 
farm or a woocted escqw for all the other creatures that share this area. 
Condos and apartment complexes are destroying qpen fields, in turn 
creating erosion, water pollution, drainage problems, and the me thing 
that developers seem to be least concerned with, the evicticm of 
thousands of animals from their habitats. No womier every mile of 
roadway has dead animals litterec'. along the side, their home is soon to 
be a worthless, "out of business" shopping center, or a half empty 
condominium complex. Why, I ask? Where will Bucks County and 
Doylestown draw the line and when? The longo- we wait the worse the 
conditions become. We must begin to look at the future and what it holds 
at our present rate of development. We must know when to say when, 
and befwe it is too late!

' Ham Radio at 

Foral begins new club 

By Bruce Eaton 

The Ham Club will be led by Mr. Marvin Foral who is a nular and ham 
radio expert. He has been a licensed ham radio operator {(x 53 years. A 
luun" owns an amateur radio used to communicitte with other operators 
all ova- the world. 

Mr. Foral has contacted Europe, Asia, and South Amoica using his 
own 2000 watt station, and he is interested in sharing his knowledge and 
experience with DVC students. Foral wants to "stimulate interest in 
electricity and ham radio operation." 

While still in high school, Mr. Foral became a licensed operator and 
joined the AARS (Army Amateur Radio system). The AARS, now 
known as the MARS, was and is ui invaluable civilian service to the 
Armed Forces. Their license operators assist the military in times of 
disaster when other lines of communication have been destroyed. 

Mr. Foral, through his AARS experience, became a civilian engineer 
f(M- the Army Signal Corp.; he taught electronics and radio operation for 
the military. In 1 943 Foral became a staff memb«- at Harvard University 
and was involved in seminal sonar develc^ment. Sonar uses sound, sonic 
and supersonic waves, to detect submerged objects. 

In 1945 Mr. Foral became involved in radar development at MIT. He 
was a Navy engineer involved in airborne radar development. Radar is 
a radio devise that emits ultra high frequency radio waves to detect the 
distance and direction an objrct. The Navy has CTedited Foral with the 
ctevelqpment of the first successful millimeter radar. 

The Ham Club will establish a ham radio station on campus. StiMlents 
and stair will build and maintain their own ham radio set. Mr. Foral said, 
"This will be hands-on training." The club station will consist of a 
transceiver and anterma. A transceiver is a device that transmits and 
receives radio sisals in a sin^e umt. 

Mr. Foral plans to prepare club members for the ham rjKlio operators 
test so they can run the stati<m on their own. 

Ham radio was the springboard to Mr. Foral's life's work: "Ham radio 
was my start to a fulfilling career, it was never work to me." 

The Ham Club plans to study electricity aiKi magnetism, basic DC 
and AC circuitry, AM and FM receivers, transistors and antomas. 

The club meets on Mondays at P.M. in Mandell 208. Contact Mrs. 
Vogel at the Media Center (ext.2387) for further information.

Coach Pento said, "The intensity 
level wasn't there like it was in the 
first half, and our youth caught up 
with us." The team fielded dhe 
upper-classmen and seven 
sophmores and freshmen. 

The team contended with a 
shallow bench, which is damag- 
ingtoPento's coaching style. Pento 
focnses on defensive pressure and 
offensive speed; this style creates 
more team fouls. Two starters 
fouled out in two overtime losses. 

The team focused on next sea-

different player combinations and 
new plays. They won their last 
game of the season. All eight play-

Coaches Pento and MacBrien 
are very positive about the team's 
potential. "Natasha Upson (Soph, 
point guard) is a tremendous de-

Ulman Furness 



By Mark N. Barbi 

On February 7, 1992, Delaware Valley College held a press confer- 
ence to introduce William B. Manlove, Jr. as the Aggie's new Head 
Football Coach, usl^ing in a new era for the school's football program. 

At the jsess coiiference, Manlove was introduced as one of the 
nation's best football coadies, and with good reason. Manlove led 
Wideno''s football team to two Division in titles , was selected as the 
ABC-TV Coadi of the Year twiw and received the American Football 
Coaches AssocisUion Kodak Division II, in Coach of the Year Award in 

While at Widoier, O^K^h Manlove «;hieved an overall record of 
182-53-1 (a winning record of 70%), , and was named Middle Atlantic 
Conference Coadi of the Year nine times. 

At his press cooSerence Manlove came across as a practical 
football coach who is very concerned about winning. He said he accepted 
the job at DVC because it is a challenge, and that he feels the team is only 
a few changes away from a successful season. 

Manlove appears to take recruiting very seriously. When asked 
at the press ccmference how he planned to get young talent interested in 
DVC's football program, he replied, "That's my job." hnplying that, not 
only is he a talent^ football coach, but he is also a competent salesman. 
Manlove was a successful recruiter at Widener University, where 
he coached for twenty-three years; and he is confident that he can do the 
job at DVC. Manlove's style of coaching concentrates on the fundamen- 
tals of footbidl, something many college players often forget about. 

Manlove was given the job after a nation-wide search by Delaware 
Valley College and was chosen from over 100 ^licants. 

Good luck Coach Manlove! 

Aggies finish 
season with 
home win 

By Bruce Eaton 

Tht moi's basketball team had 
a disa{^ointing season this year 
(6-19), but evei the mcwt dismal 
can produce a txi^t light. 

The last home and career game 
of four Aggie seniors was marked 
by SOTie inspired basketball. The 
Rams goted (if that is possible 
with those horns) the Juniata Indi- 
ans, 98-81. 

The team shot 91% (32/35) 
from the foul line, and all five 
starters scored in double figures. 

Juniata jumped to an eariy 1 5- 
10 lead, but Del-Val closed the 
gap and led the rest of the way. 
The Aggies were up by four at the 

The team played tenacious 
defense zone and man-io-man 
defense, converting turnovers into 
points. A coach couldn't ask a 
starting five to play jwy better. 

Four of Del-Val's starting five 
are seniors. Stephan Walters (Sr. 
point guard) scorei 15 pts, and 
was 7/8 from ttw line. Coach 
Weiiciser calls fcdm an, "Outstand- 
ing point guard, a tough man to 
replace. " Walters led- the team in 

Mike Knouse (Sr. guard) was 
6/6 from the line and scored 15. 
Werkiser characterizes him as. 
"A steady playo*, you can always 
count onhim to i»^oduce." Knouse 
scored over a lOCX) pts. in his 
career, even though he missed his 
junior year. 

Jacob Mickens (Sr. fo^ard) 
shot 6/6 from the line and netted 
20 pts. from the field. His offen- 
sive reb(HiiKling was a key to the 
high fmal score. He is the team's 
leading rebounder and their quick- 
est leaper. Werkiser has, 'Total 
admiration for the man. He is a 
commuter, he works and has 
played basketball for f(Kir years." 
Ted Mulroy (Sr. center), 
Werkiser said "was unconscious 
from the outside (on Friday)." He 
netted three 3-pointers and scored 
14 points. Coach Werkiser said 
he, "playswith a lot of heart and 

Ryan Buckley (So. forward) 

scrambled for loose balls and was 
the game's high scorer with 25 
points. He shot 12/12 from the 
line and played team basketball. 
Werkiser has 12 returning play- 
ers, but four starting seniors are 
tough to replace. 


Is there any food that can calm you 
down and pep you up? 

By Tina Demenczuk 
Assodato Editor 

Running around in circles? Grinding 
your teeth? PuiKhing your fist thrcmgh a 

wall? Hurry! Grab a candy bar! By the time 
you take the last bite, you will wonder how 
in the wwld you got so upset. 

Experiments nm by Dr. Richard Wurt- 

man. Dr. Judith Wurtman and Dr. Ferstrom 
of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have shown thtt a carbo- 
hydrate filled candy bar can be a temporary cure to anxiety. Hieir 
experiments have shown that certain ingredients in ordinary foods can 
cause changes in our tnm's chemistry and alter the way we feel, think 

aiMl act. 

For example, when you eat a candy bar, the sugar, which is a 

carbohydrate, goes mto your bloodstream quickly and stimulates the 
production of seritonin, which is a chemical transmitter in the Ix-ain. The 
seritcmin relaxes you and temporarily puts you in a better frame (rf'mind 
to cope with fhistraticms and challenges. 

The reason behind this tasty remedy is simple. Two of the many 
important brain nutrients are the amino acids known as tyr(sine and 
tryptophan. Together they work to counter balance each other. Tyrosine 
is present in high-protein foods. The brain metabolizes it into two 
different nmrotransmitters, norepinei^ine and dopamine. These neu- 
rotransmitters make your conscious awareness sharper, raise your 
attention span and also help your brain perform rational functions more 
effectively. However, they can sometimes go overboard and get you so 
hyped up that you can't handle opposition or set backs. 

Tryptophan, on the other hand, is an amino s^id found in high-carbo 
foods. It stimulates the production of seritcmin which is helpful in red- 
hot anger situations and the moody blues syndrome. 

Seritonin not oily can make you calm, it also enables you to endure 
pain and discomfort by raising the level of endorphines, which are the 
iH-ain's pain-killing chemicals. Incres^ed seritonin can even help combat 


If you need a mental energy boost fm a meeting or a test, scientists 

recommend a natural dose of tyrosin which can be found in relatively 

high-protein foods such as fish, shellfish, skinless chicken, low fat 

cottage cheese, tofo or skim milk. Heavy meals and fatty foods take too 

much time to digest, which causes the blood to stay in the stomach and 

away from the brain, and ultimately makes it harder fror you to 


However, if you want to keep a well-tempered manner and enjoy 

sleep, carbos not proteins will give ymi an imireased seritonin punch. 

A candy bar is not the only solution. An af^le, potato, bagel, bran muffm 

or a small amount of pasta or rice will work. If your fav(»ite candy bar 

has nuts, the protein from the nuts mixed with the carbos can inhibit 

seritoniin production. 

Whatever you decide, my suggestion is to stash both types of foods 

close by at home, in your dorm, or at work. Yes, candy bars are more 

appcaiing and easier to stash, but a 200-calorie bagel will ease your 

weight-conscious mind better than a SOO-calorie Snickers bar.

The Human Body 

By Tina Demenczuli 
Associate Editor 

1 .) The body's largest organ is the 
skin. In an adult man it covo-s 
about 20 square feet; a woman has 
about 17 square feet. The skin is 
constantly flaking away and be- 
ing completely replaced by new 
tissue about once every four 
weeks. On avo-age each person 
sheds about 105 pounds of skin 
and grows about l,OOOcompletely 
new outer skins during a lifetime. 

2.) The smallest human muscle is 
the ear. It is a little over 0.04 inch 
long. The ear also ccmtains one of 
the few parts of the body that has 
no blood vessels. Cells in part of 
the umer ear, where sound vibra- 
tirais are converted to nerve im- 
pulses, are fed by a constant bath 
of fluid instead of blood. Other- 
wise the sensitive nerves would 
be deafened by the sound of the 
body's own pulse.

Dieting And Personality Changes 

The Collegiate Journal 

"If I only lose X number of 
pounds I know I will feel better." 

Or will you? Research has 
shown that dieting affects person- 
ality and behavior, but the changes 
are usually for the worse, not the 
better. The best research done in 
this area was done in the mid- 
1940s by Dr. Keys at the Univer- 
sity of Minnesota using 36 male 
"volunteers." All were Quaker 
conscientious objectors of WWII 
and were given the option to par- 
ticipate in the study or go to jail. 
The men had good family back- 
grounds, were patriotic and psy- 
chologically strong, but did not 
believe in war or killing. 

The research consisted of 3 
three month segments. During 
the first three months, the men 
were allowed to eat as they nor- 
mally would while their personal- 
ity, eating patterns and behavior 
were recorded. Everything went 
well with no detectable problems. 
Over the second three months, 
the men's daily calories were re- 
stricted to half their fomier in- 
take. The diet consisted of 1,660 
calories per day of nutritious food, 
plus a vitamin supplement. This 
diet was fairly generous, consid- 
ering many diet programs only 
allow 600 to 1,200 calories per 
day. On this diet the men lost an 
average of 25 poimds over 12 
weeks. During the third three 
month period, the men y^re al- 
lowed to return to an uiu^stricted 

The changes oteerved during 
the weeks of dieting were dra- 
matic. Nearly all the men became 
obsessed with food. Fourty per- 
cent wanted to improve their cook- 
ing skills, and many considered 
changing their profession to chef. 
Can you imagine 36 men in the 
mid-40s reading cookbooks and 
constantly discussing foods, reci- 

pes and the tastiest way to i»'epare 
their alloted food? That's exactly 
what happened. They craved hot, 
spicy foods. Coffee and tea can- 
sumption increased so much that 
they were limited to nine cups a 
day. Many developed a tendency 
to binge eat, and a buddy system 
was started to help curb their be- 
havior fra* fear of being removed 
firom the study. Nearly all reported 
constant hunger 

The participants also experi- 
enced significant emotional 
changes. They became irritable 
and apathetic, and ignored per- 
sonal hygiene. Emotional stress 
increased, and two became psy- 
chdtic. Fighting, weeping 
,thoughts of suicide and violence 
were noted. They lost their sense 
of humor, and social interactions 

declined. The cohesiveness of the 
group gave way to isolation. 

Sexual interest waned. The men 
reported feeling fatigued, weak 
,listless and dizzy. Sane experi- 
enced poor muscle coordination 
and hypersensitivity to light. 

When they retumed to their 
"normal" diet, their lives remained 
altered. Tliey still prepared gour- 
met dishes and gluttcmy was com- 
mon. Some WCTC even observed 
licking their plates. EjUing 8,000 
to 10,000 calories at one sitting, 
they continued to binge. A few 
men actually developed binge 
and purge behavior common to 

Even thou^ this is an older 
study, it is right on target with 
current thinking about eating dis- 
orders and starvation. It clearly 
illustrates that a simple diet may 
not make you feel better but could 
trigger harmful psychological and 
behavioral changes that are diffi- 
cult to reverse, while on a diet you 
may be aware of the changes in 
your personality, but ask a friend. 
The answer might surprise you.^

rve got gocxi news tnd bad nevrs... 

The good news, tibe very good news 
is that the College has received a gilt 
of 174 acres of land in Montgomery 
County at the into^ecticni of Routes 
202 and 63, about seven miles from 
the main canqxis. As a condition of 
the gift the land must be used for 

educational purposes, which is a 

broad ort^ory. Dr. Joshua Peld- 

stein, oat Pnau^eat Emeritus, has woited with the donor for several 

years to acquire this gift for our College's friture. At present, the ckmor 

requests no putdkaty, so let's keep the gift news within our family. 

Now the not-so-good news.,.. 

As you may have read in the newspapo^, the state aid for our College 
has been cut , more correctly cut out of the Governor's proposed biulg^ 
akMig with the eUmination of equipmoit grants. These cuts in high«' 
education will ffftd nearly all of higher education m Pennsylvania as 
state colleges ue also proposed to reduced state funding. You can 
be sure that all Pennsylvania colleges, public and private, are now ming 
every political ami economic means they have to restore the situation (x 
come to some compromise solution. 

I Mali, on behalf of our College, be personally involved in this effort. 

Radio Free DVC 

Can you here it? 

By Bruce Eaton 

Did you know that pel Val had a radio station? The statioi was an 
outgrowdi of Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity; they began operation 
in the late 70s. 

The station was originally installed on the second floor of the Alumni 
House, then moved to the second floor of Segal Hall. When the Student 
Center was built in 1983, the station was moved there. The station was 
not active at the time, although it was fuiK;tional. 

Dr. Orr, faculty advisor to APO, said, "APO divorced itself from the 

station because it didn't have enough staff to run the station sead its 
Service Frziemty." He has seen student interest in reviving the station 
wax and wane frxmi year to year. 

Hie existing system is set iq) for short range AM broadcast . It has 
enough powo- to sovice the campus. However, the years of disuse and 
the many moves have not helped to preserve the system. 

Kent BuM}aunoyer of Blue Chip Sound and Light said, " The biggest 
problem lies in the outdated tube-type transmitters being used to 
broadcast to the dormiumes. They have required numerous repairs, ami 
quite frankly, ve probably not worth the continued band-aids to keq) 
^em operating. 

Bubbenmoyer estimates that it will cost about $10,000 to replace the 
three AM transmitters. These transmitters receive the signal from the 
staticm and th«i modulate the signal thrcmgh coaxial cable to es^h 

Much of tin cable is not functional, however, weathering and disuse 
have talren tbeir toll. It will cost about $5,000 to rq}lace the coaxial cable. 
Realistically, it is going to cost between $13 and $20,000 to put WDVC 
back on the air. 

Once the sxz^(m is on the air, it wouki take a staff of at least 20 people 
to run the station efficioitly. It has been sasot time since the camims has 
seen that miK;h interest, but there seems to be interest now. 

John Hirth (Soph. SAC rep) feels that the station would be good for 
campus life. He thinks students would get involved if the staticm was re- 
established. Hirth said, "A radio staticm would benefit more students than 
other campus activities. It would reach mwe people." 

Ian Luginbuhl (Jun. SAC rep) has been interested in the station for over 
a year. He said, "A campus station would create more interest in the

Del Val has had such people as Surgeon General Coop and Tom 
Qancy (The Hunt For Red Octobo") on campus, but now it is really time 
to wake up Doylestown with the arrival of Bobcat CSoldthwait. I am sure 
you all remember him. He's the fimny, boistrous, and defmitely hilari(»is

Reaccredation Update 

Self Study Effort In Full Swing 

By Ron Johnson 

Chairman, Steering Committee 

After a brief mating on Tuesday, February 25, 1992, the various 
Task Force Groups were turned loose to complete their part of the self 
evaluation study. As part of this process it may be necessary to survey 
the student body, ff you receive me of tlwse questicmnaires please take 
time to thoughtfully complete and return it The more responses we 
have, the more accurate the result. The reports frwn these various groups 
will be compile into a single document v^kh should be available fcM* 
re vie w by al 1 members (rf the DVC community in November of this year. 
A series of meetings will be held to discuss it with you shortly thereafter. 
We need your input If you want to get involved, just let me know and 
I am sure we can Hi^ a place for you. The final draft should be ready 
by February of 1993 in plenty of time for our site visit in April of 1993. 
Dr. Marie Tarpey oi Alfred University is ^ing to Chair the visitation 
team and she will be stoj^ing by in February, 1 993 for a "get acquainted" 
visit. Right now everything is on schedule and p-ogressing smoothly and

school and make the campus brighto*." Luginbuhl has sought advice 
from other college stations, and he has found that record companies want 
to send music once the station is operating. L4iginbuhl said, "But we need 
some money few anything to get started." 

This interest from the student body raises the question, is the admin 
istration aware of student interest in a campus station? Dean Jarrett said 
"Yes I am aware oi student interest but any m«iey spent is measured by 
the value it receives. Money is a [n-oUan, and $13-20,000 is a lot oi 

Dean Jarrett's office paid Blue Ch^ to assess the radio system, aiKi 
Jarrett has not seen »iough consistent student interest to justify that sum 
of money. The money for the statirai would have to come from SAC fees 
or be allocated through Student Govemmoit Jarrett said. "I am support 
ive of the idea; it would be an excellent means of communication. But 
Student Govemment needs to see if that exp«iditure will benefit the 
most students and justify that expenditure to the student body." 

Well, can you tear it? 

...from Security 

This issue begins a monthly 
report from your Security Depart- 
ment giving statistics on crime 
and other inctdeitts which occurred 
on campus in the previous month. 
Tins first report covers the period 
from the start of die 2nd sonester, 
1/21/92 to 2/26/92. 

We hope that tlw regulv pub- 
lication of these statistics will 
make you aware of those areas 
where increased involvonent on 
your part can greatiy diminish the 
of^Kxtunity for crime to occur. 
For example, many thefts from 
dorm rooms occur during Uie day. 
Keep your dorm rooms locked at 
all times, even if you are away for 
cnly a few minutes: do not keqp 
handbags, wall^ and jewelry in 
open view in ysur room. Maintain 
an inventory of your posessions, 
including serial numbers of equip- 
ment (Security has m oigraving 
tool available lot insCTibing I.D. 
numbers on items). 

Anether area of concern is the 
"propping" of residence hall 
dorms after locki^. This puts ev- 
eryone ih that dorm at risk, do not 
assume that responsibility. 

Remember - Safety is

Brain Teasers 

Three men walk into a hotel 
and request a room, the clerk then 
said it was $30 a night for a room, 
so each man gave $ 10 to the clerk. 
Once the men got back to their 
room the clerk realized that he 
over charged them; on the week- 
ends a room was only $25. So he 
gave the bellboy $5 and told him 
to return it to the three men. On the 
way up to the room, knowing that 
he can't evenly split $5 between 3 
people, he pockets $2.00 and 
gives $ 1 to each of the three men. 

If each man paid $9, 9x3a27 plus 
the 2 the bellboy has equals 29! 
Where is the other dollar?

Flower Show 

DVC Wins Three Awards 

By Mark N. Barhi 

Staff Writer 

, As annual as the flowers it 
showcased, Philadelphia's 
flower show once again held 
its week -long, nationally rec- 
ognized event in the Civic 
Center. Tte yearly spectacle 
is tlK largest indoor flower 
show in the world and proudly 
displays entries from all over 
the United States and Europe. 
However, the most impres- 
sive display traveled only sev- 
eral minutes from Doylestown 
to reach Philadelphia's presti- 
gious event. Delaware Valley 
College won three awards for 
its exhibit "Night Sensations- 
Discovering Life After Daric" 
and showed the talent and cre- 
ative genius of both the stu- 
dents and faculty. 

Under the guidance of Dr. 
Martin, DVC captured the 
Pennsylvania Horticultural 
Society's Award tor Best in 
Show( Educational -Aca- 
demic), the American Horti- 
cultural Society Citation, and 
a Special Achievement Award 
for Horticulture from the Gar- 
den Club Federation of 
America. Through the use of 
color, lighting, and fragrance; 
DVC's display effectively 
showed how gardens can be 
organized so they may be ap- 
preciated at night. DVCs ex- 
hibit was an inspiration for all 
who saw it and allowed the 
average gardener to consider 
would even have considered;

Quick Presidential Quiz on 
"Bixdget and Growth 

By Pedrito Fischer 

Recently, I interviewed 
DVC President George West. 
I was. at first, very uneasy to 
talk to the top man; but I soon 
fouTKl a warm ami helpful per- 
sonality to guide me through 
some hot campus questions. 

1 first asked: Could you 
please discuss some of the new- 
est budget proposals for 
D.V.C.? Is this new budget set 
to the Slate cuts? West an- 
swered. "When you are trying 
to constmct a budget and fig- 
ure out what your expenses 
can be ... You have to be very f 
conservative in your estimate 
of what you are going to re- 
ceive. " However. Dr. West 
believes that DVC will crni- 
rinue to receive Stare Aid in 
one form or another, despite 
announcements of State cuts 
to private institutions.The 
President figures on a full bal- 
anced budget for our next fis- 
cal year, but "We'll have to 
wait and see what the Board of 
Tmstees say about this pre- 
luninary budget proposal.Ac- 
cording to President West, 
State Aid does not seem to be 
a laige chunk of the college's 
budget bi a 16 million dollar 
budget, $400,000 is a rela- 
tively small percentage of the 
total budget. Although help- 
M and appreciated, the col- 
lege can survive. Mr. West 
reassured me: "State Aid 
would not have any great af- 
fect on DVC; it would be at 

best, marginal." 

To conclude my budget 

questions I asked if there is an 
organized campaign to write 
to our state representatives to 
ask that we continue to re- 
ceive finaiKial assistance. The 
President said: "I don't par- 
ticulariy want everybody to 
gang up on the legislature, but 
to make a singular note." The 
President said we could possi- 
bly petition the legislature as a 
student body, band together 
with a positive letter from our 
college. The President added 
withasmile, "The more voices 
that the legislature hears, the 

better. Faculty members, stu- 
dents and their parents should 
be heard." 

I then asked about the new 
gift of 1 74 acres of land from 
an anonymous donor. Tlie larxl 
is about seven miles to our 
south, at the intersection of 
routes 202 and 63. It is ours 
only as an "educational re- 
source ". Mr. West said. "The 
land is ours in perpetuity... for 
agricultural educational 
purposes only." 



Budget developments say 
that the land will be used ini- 
tially for crops. The budget 
will cover the initial crop, and 
the farm will become self-suf- 

Mr. West ended with this: 
"Dr. Feldstein is the one who 
brought the gift in and should 
get the credit for this acquisi- 
ton. The planning for the fu- 
ture use of this land is ongo- 

Next, I had to find out how 
we were going to house over 
900 freshmen next year. Dr. 
West smiled and told me the 
projections are only up to 475 
new students for the fall se- 
mester. The rumors that ranged 
ftom 500 to 1.000 new stu- 
dents probably came from 
"about a week or so ago, be- 
cause the number of applica- 
tions topped 1,000." 

Last year the class had ap- 
proximately 437 new fresh- 
men; this year it could reach 
475 or so. An average of 400 
or a little more can be handled 
by existing dorms and facih- 
ties. DVC is a resident cam- 
pus , President West reminded 
me: "Approximately 70% of 

our students reside on cam- 
pus. This is a good problem, a 
problem of growth." 

1 then asked if the newly 
acquired land could be used 
for donmitories. "As I inter- 
pret for educational use', it 
means pretty much what we 
are doing on this campus now, 
it could include new dorms." 
Inclosing, I asked Mr. West 
what people should know 
about DVC now. He thought 
for a moment and said. "The 
finaricial condition of the col- 
lege has improved. I'm reason- 
ably certain that we will come 
out to a balanced budget this 

Mr. also appreciaics 
itie gooa siuueni morale anu 

friendly attitude on this cam- 

This interview reflects the 
Presictent's open door policy: 
"We try to to keep open with 
each other all the time." With 
the help of his student con- 
tacts and straight-shooting, 
Mr. West feels that the cam- 
pus is heading in a positive 
direction. The President re- 
minded me: "If you don't talk 
to each other much, it isn't that 
anything is going on, it's just 
tiiat you don't know, and that's 

how rumors are created."

Spotlight On... 

ItahelUa Kasloski 

By Jennifer Miako 

Staff Writer 

This issue's spotlight falls upon the hard woridng Isabelita Kasloski. Lita, as she likes to be 
called, worics for housekeeping and maintains the following buildings: Miller Hall, the Alumni 
Building, the Media Center, the Research Center and the Horticulture Buildings. 

Lita has been with the DVC family since 1989. She hails fipom the Philippines where she grew 
up on a small farm. Lita says "I really like America." She enjoys the opportunities it offers to all 
people. Recently, she and her husband purchased a house and arc finally getting settled into a 
routine with their 22month old daughter, Roseallie. 

Lita rcmariced about the friendly atmosphere of the college. She enjoys attending many of the 
college's social events. She often brings her daughter and her friends to the college's many sporting 
and cultural enrichment events. Her favorite pastime at the college is to come and watch the 
basketball games. 

I asked Lita about the college life-style in the Philippines. She said that all the students in the 
Philippines are required to wear uniforms, yes, even the students. Also, Lita remariced that smdents 
normally go to class five days a week, but that they either attend an AM or a PM shift only. 

Be sure to say hello to Lita when you see her around campus. You can't miss her wanm, friendly 
smile or her easily approachable manner.*

Things You Can Do Around Campus 
To Help The Environment 

By Marci Carroll 

Staff Writer 

Turn off all electrical equipment that is not being used: TV, 
stereo, lights, coffee makers, blowdryers. 

Do not leave water running when you are brushing your teeth, 
shaving or washing your hands and face. Every minute, 3 to 5 
gallons of water go down the drain. 

Before throwing away six-pack rings that hold beer or soda cans, 
snip each circle with scissors. Seals, seagulls and other birds get 
their heads caught in them. 

Try not to purchase anything that is packaged in plastic or 
styrofoam. Buy products packaged in cardboard. 

Recycle your trash! All over campus there are boxes for paper 
materials and garbage cans for aluminum, glass and plastic.

The Aggies 1992 Delaware 
Valley College baseball team 
is looking towards a great sea- 
son this year. Coach Frank 
Wolfgang and tl^ team are 
very optimistic, they hope to 
have a winning season and 
strong pitchers. 

Coach Wolfgang lost three 
players from last years' team, 
but gained 8 freshman and two 

junior transfers. The returning 
players are Ryan Buckley 
(Soph), Matt Fritzinger (Jun), 
Tim Mears (Soph), Bob Spratt 
(Soph), and Kyle Walters 
(Jun). Team captains are Bob 
Altieri and Brian Schlegal, 
both seniors. 

The Aggies record last year 
was8winsandl41o^s. They 
split every double header. Lets 
hope our baseball team has a 
great season, and let's all get 
out and cheer them on. ■

Coach Linda Fleischer 
begins her second year as the

though the Lady Aggies had a 
disappointing 3- 1 6 record last 
year. Coach Fleischer says 
things will be much different 
this year. 

The returning players are 
Kelly Swiss, Jen Seidel, Sue 
Freichs, and Becky Altman. 
Key newcomers to the teapi 
are Audrey Dohl, Joan Tho- 
mas, Sylance Spence, Kristi

Coach Fleischer feels this 
years talent is superior to that 
of last season. Fleischer says, 
"We will be stronger at the 
plate, and we have three stron- 
ger pitchers." The coach fore- 
sees that, "We should be .500 
or better this year. We are a 
quicker team, more aggres- 
sive, and we won't make the 
same mental mistakes." 

The addition of two new 
experienced catchers, Audrey 
and Michelle, will add some 
extra glue to hold the team 
together. With dedication and 
a lot of hard work, this softball 
team will produce game vic- 
lories. As they say, "Nothing 
comes easy." ■

To Build or Not to Build 


I am writing this letter from an environmentalist point of view. 
This may be confusing because I am in support of the constmc- 
tion of the Rt 202 by-pass. At the present point of development, 
there seems to be no other viable alternative for this area except 
to build a by-pass. Cars and trucks constantly flood the Rt. 202 
corridor between Montgomeryville and Doylestown, most of 
them simply passing through. As this traffic has become 
increasingly worse over the years, Perm Dot has come to the 
realization that the area needs a by-pass. 

If this by-pass is built; it will create many envirormiental 
positives. It will relieve congestion along the corridor through 
Bucks County. It will be conducive to a safer animal habitat (less 
roadkills), less air pollution, a more placid and peaceful atmo- 
sphere, and hopefully it will inhibit any further development 
along the already over-developed route. This will also allow 
motorists, who use back roads to avoid congestion, the use of Rt. 
202 for reaching local destinations, therefore freeing up the mral 
areas. Automobiles using the by-pass will get better fuel 
economy than on a traffic-ridden road, therefore conserving 
fossil fuels and decreasing the amountof C02 that is emitted into 
the atmosphere. Emergency Persormel will be able to respond 
faster whetlwr it be on the new by-pass or on the old Rt. 202. All 
of these positives show a definite advantage to building the by- 
pass, but there are some disadvantages. 

These disadvantages are minimal compared to the pros of 
iHiilding a by-pass, but they must still be considered. The by- 
pass will run through what is now c^n land and may be an eye 
sore. It wiU have its share of roadkills, but this will hopefully be 
reduced through the use of fencing along its boundary. Many 
residents will unfortunately feel repercussions during the build- 
ing of this project. Views from some homes will be mined which 
(»uld effect property values and destroy their tranquility. 
Overall, the by-pass is the most practical, logical, and environ- 
mentally sound alternative, considering our present condition, 
mA that is another subject altogettier.

Date Rape /Acquaintance Rape 
Is It a Problem? 

Date rape is an increasing concern in American dating tl^se days, especi^Qly at schools. It is 
much more dangerous and prevalent than most people think. Most people assume that dating is 
safer in mral areas and with those hvm rural environments. 

Date r^ is deflned as a crime of violence and aggression motivated by a desire for control and 
dominance, not sex. It is the physical force by a dating partner to have sexual intercourse against 
his or her own will. Typically, traditional US dating patterns are such that the men are expected 
to ask the women out, plan and pay for the night, then expect a sexual repayment aiKJ when turned 
down, they react violently. 

Several surveys conducted at many different colleges in the US over the past two years showed 
that nearly half of the women polled had been sexually assaulted in some way against tlwir will, 
many men still believe that when their dating partner says "No", she means "Yes" and that most 
women feel embarrassed to refuse. 

Here are some helpful hints to avoid potential date rape: 

1 . Always plan ahead arKl meet at or go to public places, on a first date. 

2. Try to double date, especially if it is a blind date. 

3. EX) not accept a ricte home from a party by someone you just met, plan your way home ahead 
of time. 

4. Don't drink too much or be forced to drink more than you can handle by someone ycHi just met. 

5. Say what you mean, be confident and assertive and demand respect from the begirming. 

6. Be aware of what is going on around you , (ton't let someone get you in a vulnerable situation. 

7. Don't rely on reputation, if someone is known as non-violent, it doesn't mean that they won't 
be in the future. Know that anyone can be a potential rapist. 

8. Be prepared with a self-(tefense strategy at all times just in case you are ever put in an unwanted 
situation unexpectedly. 



d In Dovlestown 


I am writing in refereru:e to 
Robert Kanzler's Letter to the 
Editor in the March 9 issue of 
tlK Ram Pages. He com- 
plained about the check cash- 
ing policy of the student store 
and I would like to reply. 

First of all, this policy is a 
benefit and service provided 
for DVC students. Mrs.Spratt, 
the bookstore manager, goes 
out of her way to help stu- 
dents. She ^cial orders shirts 
that various clubs request and 
does other things forindividu- 
als which is far beyorul her 
duties as a manager. Mrs. 
Spratt is being harassed over 
the phone about the bookstore 
by people who have no idea of 
what she has to do in order to 
have cash-on-hand. This in- 
volved process must first be 
processed through Lasker 
Hall. Next, a pick-up must be 
made at the bank which is an 
estimated guess as to how 
much money will be needed. 
If the "no check cashing" sign 
is posted and an individual 
has a problem, such as the 
friend who could not get 
money for airfare, just talk to 
her and she will do her best to 
help that person. 

People around here need to 
take responsibility for them- 
selves. Since they are living at 

college thev should get a local 
bank account. There is one 

within walking distance, only 

two Mocks frcHn here. 

I think Ram Pages should 
have given Mrs. Spratt a 
chance to put in a rebuttal in 
the March 9 issue(the same 
issue as tl^ letter to the editor 
was printed) so people would 
not respond the way they are. 

A MAC machine may be 
put in during spring bre^. 
That is not verified but it is 
going to cost this school money 
that it can not afford to spend. 
What is going to haj^n wl^n 
the MAC machine breaks or 
eats someone's card? It is not 
a cure for getting cash. If 
anyone has more problems, 
please talk to Mrs. Spratt 
Amy Lubinsky 

Editors Note: 

The purpose of letters to the 
editor is to give people the 
opportunity to address their 
concerns and express their 
opinions. When issues such 
as this arise in the future we 
will do our best to inform the 
involved parties so that they 
may also respond. 

From the March 24 stu- 
dent government meeting: 
A MAC machine will soon 
be placed in the Student 
Center for the convenience 
of all Dei Val members.

Flower Show 
(contin$ttd fhom pg. 1) 

this is the most impressive 
aspect of the display: it will 
motivate many who saw it to 
orchestrate a nightscape of 
their own. 

To achieve the night-time 
effect, the massive exhibit was 
draped with a black fabric 
which daricened the area and 
allowed the various plants to 
display their remarkable abil- 
ity to affect the night. Upon 
entering the display one 
walk^ along a meandering 
path and observed foliage, a 
statue-2Kx:enmated stream, and 
a small cottage. This real-life 
model is what inspired visi- 
tors the most; people felt that 
they could improve their 
home's surroundings with ef- 
fective landscaping for both 
day and night. 

All the flowers at the show 
had to be labeled with their 
proper botanical name in or- 
der to make the flower show 
an educational event, md D VC 
students who participated in 
the event gained valuable laiKl- 
scaping experience and botani - 
cal knowledge, which is eas- 
ily applied to careers in the 
horticultural industry. 

Delaware Valley College 
has been participating in tJic 
event for 42 years and is al- 
ready planning another im- 
pressive display for next year.

Train Ride to 
the Past 

By Marci Carrol 

Staff Writer 

Have you ever wondered 
where the train stop behind the 
greenhouse takes you? Well, 
the R5 train (to Maiket East) 
can take you hundreds of years 
back to the time of Betsy Ross 
and the signing of the Declara- 
tion of Independence. 

Historical Philadelphia is 
home to such places as Inde- 
pendence National Historical 
Paik, which is also known as 
"the most historical square 
mile in America". There arc 
twenty-six buildings and sites 
that exhibit the time when our 
nation was founded. The park 
is located on Third and Chest- 
nut Streets and is open 9-5 
daily, there is no charge, and 
for further information you can 

call (215) 597-8974. 
If that is not enough history 

for one day. there is always 
Independence Hall. This is the 
famous site where the Decla- 
ration of Independence was 
signed and where the Consti- 
tution was drafted. Another 
nearby site is the Liberty Bell 
Pavilion which is located out- 
side inlhc Independence Mall. 
Both arc located on Chestnut 
Street between Fifth and Sixth 

Other nearby sites are the 
Edgar Allen Poe House and 
the Betsy Ross House. Edgar 
Allen Poe lived at this particu- 
lar house for one year. He 
wrote such poems as "The 
CJolden Bug" and "The Black 
Cat" while living at532 North 
Seventh Street. There is no 
charge to visit his house and it 
is open 9-5 daUy. (215) 597- 

The Betsy Ross house is lo- 
cated on 239 Arch Street. She 
is even buried, along with her 
second husband, in the back- 
yard. It is open 9-5 daily and 
there is also no charge to enter. 

This is a perfect, inexpen- 
sive way for a college student 
to spend the day in such a 
historical city as Philadelphia.

Venture into Wonderland and experience The Mf»d Hatters, j 
band that combines high-powered energy jamming wjili unique 
songwriiing. fusing elements of blues, funk, and fo.k. Tlic Mad

1. You should avoid drinkli^ alcohol when you're 
cold. Though alcohol may taste and feel warm, it 
actually cools the body. This is because alcohol 
dilates the blood vessels which allows for a rush 
of more blood to the skin's surface. In the 
process, body heat is given off. ■ 

Beyond HIV... 


Staff Writer 

Sexually transmitted dis- 
eases, or STDS, affect mil- 
lions of Americans each year. 
These diseases are spread dur- 
ing sexual activity, usually in 
people uiKler the age of thirty, 
and can have serious conse- 
quences such as Uindness, ste- 
rility, and even (teath. Once a 
person has one of the twenty 
or more different diseases he 
or she may never get rid of it. 
There is no v2K;cination and 
the body cannot build up an 
immunity. Nonedieless tl^re 
are several explanations why 
STDs are spreading rapidly: 
people are not aware of these 
diseases, symptoms are not 
easily noticed, and infected 
people don't inform partners. 
Everyone can help stop the 
spread of STDs however, by 
understanding the different 
STDS, and knowing their 
symptoms. Every infected 
person must seek medical 
attention promptly, and take 
preventative measures. Here 
arc five frequently contracted 

STDs arKl their symptoms. 

The first and most com- 
monly reported STD in the 
United States is gonorrhea. It 
is always transmitted during 
sexual contact. The symp- 
toms may not always occur, 
but if they do, it will usually 
be 2-20 days after sex with a 
contaminated partner. The 
disease usually produces a 
whitish discharge from the 
penis or vagina, painful and 
frequent urination, and in 
women pain in the abdominal 
area. If this disease ctoes in- 
deed go unnoticed, it may 
result in sterility for niales 
and females, infections in 
joints and heart tissue, ami 
PID (Pelvic Inflammatory 
Disease) in women. Preg- 
nant women should beware, 
for newbom babies can be- 
come permanently blind from 
this disease. Those who think 
they may have this disease, 
should seek medical attention 
immediately. Once diagnosed 
they will be prescribed anti- 
biotics, which cures most 
cases of gononiiea. 

Syphilis is the second and 
most dangerous STD in the 
United States.. It can be trans- 
mitted by contact through 
broken skin but almost al- 

ways by sexual contact. The 
symptoms will develop in three 
stages. The first stage occurs 
one to twelve weeks after con- 
tact A sore will appear on the 
genitals, mouth, or anus. The 
second symptom usually de- 
velops around tl» same time 
as the first. It is a rash that 
forms on the chest, back, arms, 
and legs. In addition, the 
lymph nodes become enlarged 
on die i^ck, under the arms, 
and in the groin. He or she 
may also develop flu-like 
symptoms. The symptoms 
eventually disappear, but the 
third stage hits hard in ap- 
proximately three or more 
years after contact. Ulcers 
develop externally on the skin 
and on internal organs. Ar- 
thritis and loss of feeling in 
the limbs will also follow. Pain 
and disability, due to damage 
to the heart, blood vessels, 
spinal cord, and brain eventu- 
ally disables an individual. 
However, syphilis is very treat- 
able with antibiotics. Yet, if 
the disease is left untreated, it 
will produce heart, brain and 
spinal damage. The ultimate 
outcome, unfortunately is 
death. Moreover, a pregnant 
women may pass the disease 
onto her fetus; but. if the dis- 

ease is detected in the fetus, it 
can be cured. 

Genital Heipes is the third 
and one of the most painful 
STDs. It can be transmitted 
by contact with infected 
sexual organs, even with hand 
contact. The symptoms are 
painful sores on or around the 
genitals, fever, and painfiil or 
frequent i^ed to urinate. This 
STD can lead to a heightened 
risk of cervical cancer in 
women, occasional flare-iq)s, 
and brain damage to the un- 
born child, premature biith 
and even death may occur. 
TlKre is no known cure for 
Genital Herpes only pain re- 
lieving dmgs. 

The fourth STD is Chlamy- 
dia and one of the most com- 
mon STD in the U.S. It is 
transmitted by contact with 
the vagina, mouth, eyes, ure- 
thra, or the rccmm . The symp- 
toms are a discharge from the 
penis or vagina, painful urina- 
tion, and lower abdominal pain 
in women. Chlamydia can 
result in sterility in both men 
and women, and newborns can 
have eye damage and infant 
pneumonia. Chlamydia can 
be effectively cured with treat- 
ments from antibiotics. 
Most of these STDs can be 

prevented by sexual absten- 
tion. But for many people this 
step is unrealistic. While the 
use of condoms is not 100% 
safe, it aids in the protection 
againsttheseSTDS. Condoms 
are ir^xpensive, easy to use 
and available without prescrip- 
tion. Many Planned Parent- 
hood clinics give coiKloms 
away free. Use (Hily the latex 
type and never use petroleum 
or oil based products with 
them. These products can 
cause the condoms to deterio- 
rate. No one wants to experi- 
ence the results and even the 
symptomsof these STDS. You 
may not have to if you use a

The Starfish Man 

U.S. Department (^Health and Human Services 

One morning at dawn, a young boy went for a walk on the 
beach. Up ahead, he noticed an old man stooping down to pick 
up starflsh and fling them into the scsl. Fmally, catching up with 
the old man, the boy asked him what he was doing. The old man 
answered that the stranded starfish would die unless they were 
retumol to the water. "But the beach goes on for miles, ^d there 
are millions of starfish," protested the boy. "How can what you're 
doing make any difference?" The old man looked at the starfish 
in his hand and then threw it to safety in the waves. "It makes a 
difference to this one," he said.

When a person you arc out 
on a date forces himself on 
you even though you have 
asked him to stop. 

I don't know if it is a prob-

It is a male forcing himself 
on a female after she said no.

problem on campus."

Be Credit Qard Smart 

Sure, a credit card meansj 

money and freedom. But us 

ing a cars too often can Icadj 

you into a financial disaster 

Before you know it, you're 

charged to the maximum of 

your credit line, you can't make the payments, the bank is 

after you, and you're stuck in the credit trap. Say good-bye 
tr to that good credit rating you worked so hard for. 

If you have a credit card or are thinking about getting one. 
«ri here arc a few basic facts to keep in mind: 


U $ Credit cards make sense when you save them for a real 

emergency and pay off the entire amount you owe when yoi^ 

S) get the bill. 

$ Visa, MasterCard and department store credit cards are 
actually high interest loans in disguise. You'll pay as mucH 
as 23 percent interest (called a finance charge) on the portion of 
your bill that you don't pay off at the end of the month. You may 
also have to pay an annual fee just for having the card. Then 
there's the fee for using your card to get cash in advance (a very 
bad idea), and yet another hefty fee each time your payment i^ 

$ Credit cards cost you a bundle -just check the numbers: If youi 
average unpaid credit card bill over the year is $5(X), and the 
finance charge is 20 percent, you're paying $1(X) ($5(X) x 2C 
percent ) in finance charges alone each year. Now figure in ttie 
$20 annual card fee, and another $25 because your payment was 
late one month. That credit card is costing you a whopping $ 145 
a year ($500 x 20 percent = $ 100 finance charge + $20 annual fee 
+ $25 late fee = $145). And that's in addition to the purchases 
you've charged! It's a vicious cycle: before you know it, you can 
only afford to pay off the monthly finance charge and yot^ never 
get rid of the debt. Use cash instead of plastic and you'll savej 

« yourself a lot of money. |

Del Val Hosts The 

Science Olympiad 

Bridge Building 

^ This years Science Olym- 
piad was held right here at 
DVC. For the past 5 years 
Moravian College hosted this 
international non-profit orga- 
nization. Under Dr. Orr's su- 
pervision. DVC took on the 
chaUenge. He said, "I think 
things ran well for the first 
time, but there is always room 
for improvement." 

The Science Olympiad 
competitions take place on 
intramural, district, regional, 
stale and national levels. 

The Science Olympiad was 
created in order to increase 

student interest in science. The 
tournaments are tough aca- 
demic interscholastic compe- 
titions that have about 32 
events which consist of suchl 
science topics as biology, 
chcm istry , earth science, 01)^- 
ics, computer, and technology, 
all combined in one large 

Dr. Orr would like to thank 
the student volunteers for all 
of their help. "I couldn't have 
done it with out them," he 
said. If the Olympiad is held 
here next year, he will need all 
of his valuable helpers again.

Q. Our Siamese cal, 
being typical of the breed, 
is extremely vocal. 

He is 12 years old and 
perfectly healthy. So we 
were amazed a few days 
ago when the cat opened 
his mouth and no sound 
came out. He had lost his 
voice completely. It took 
three days to come back. 

Can cats have colds or 
laryngitis? And what 
could I do to help my cat 
if this happens again? 

A. Cats can catch 
colds and laryngitis, but 
not from the same bacte- 
ria or viruses which cause 
those problems in 

However, there are 
other possible causes of 
feline laryngitis. A 
growth in the laryngeal 
area could affect the 
voice. A reaction to a 
small cut or scratch back 
in that region which has 
become infected also 
could be the source of the 
trouble. An imbedded 
piece of foreign material, 
such as a blade of grass, 
also might cause such a 

Spencer Green 

X cmn en iMiONiciifT, 

cue, >MD-||MT TAKES 

reaction. Usually such 
causes would be accom- 
panied by a cough as well 
as loss of voice. 

If this is the only time 
this problem has oc- 
curred, you don't need to 
worry about treatment. If 
it happens again, howev- 
er, particularly in light of 
your cat's age, take him to 
your veterinarian. The 
vet should examine the 
cat, and depending on 
how cooperative your pet 
is, may use a very short- 
acting sedative, making it 
possible to actually see 
the entire laryngeal areas 
and the vocal folds.

oite ! I'd like to be happy living here but I want my own room. 

Please help me! 

THANKS! Sincerely, wanting one person room 

Dear wanting one person room, 

Chie person rooms are very limited on campus, and unless you are 

a senior with a low lottery number, your chances of getting one 

of these rooms is not great. Also with the large number of 

freshman arriving in the fall there is the possibility of no single 


If you are unable to get into one of these rooms there are 
always other possibilities. If finances are not too bad there are 
some small apartments located in this area. Your other option is 
to try and find a person you feel compatible with. There may 
be someone out there that can be your perfect roommate. Keep 
looking and do not let this one tempr>rary setback niin your time 
at Del Val. 
Dear Aggie, 

Why is the student center calied a "Student Center" when 
there isn't much for students to d«! there? 

Dear Disgruntled, 

The rea.son for the Student Center having such a name is 
because is a place for students to gather. The Student Govern- 
ment and the Student Activities Committee have their offices 
there and hold all of their meeting upstairs. Mail boxes and the 
student store are located there loo. Probably the most important 
reason for its name is the fact that many events take place in the 
student center such as. dances, comedians, concerts, and week- 
end movies. The Soul purpose of this building is to create a pi <jce 
for one to one-thousand people to meet and relax 
Hope to see you ttwre!

Rumor Control 

Tuition Increase 

How You Will Be Affected! 

By Paul Schneider 
Tiita Demenezuk 


Rumor has it that tuition will be 
increasing for the fall semester! 
It is our goal is to dispel the false 
rumors and set the record 
straight. YES, tuiti(m is increas- 
ing. NO, it is not only affecting 

The next big question is WHY 
is tuition increasing? A college is 
like any other business and must 
adjust the price of its product 
accordingly to inflation. The 
product of a college is called 
eduM^on and the price for this 
product is known as tuition. So 
why is there so much contro- 
versy over a tuition increase? 
The main reascm for this conflict 
is duetothe actual dollar amount. 
A 4%-5% increase on afive digit 
number such as tuition, seems 
much more significant compared 
to a 4%-5% increase on two to 
three digit numbers such as ev- 

quality and availability of DVCs 
ery day consumer goods. 

Last year the college started to 
combat its fmancial difficulties 
through a major re-organization 
and a flattening of the institution. 
There was a wage and hiring 
freeze, cuts in admini^«tive po- 
sitions and an average 6.8% tu- 
ition increase. This year there 
will also be a 9% tuition increase. 

According to President West and

Seeds to Russia 

By Bruee Eaton 
A A ElSports EtStor 

A couple of weeks ago President Bush signed a bill to give the 
Russian Federation about $12 bilion in aid for economic stabilization 
and recovery. A huge aid package to an eccmomy that is on the brink 
of collsq[)8e. But this tax payer often wtmders how much of that money 
gets throu^ national bureauaacy and into the hands of the citizens 
it is meant to help. 

After another severe Russian winter, with huge food shortages and 
lines the people of the Russian Federation need a real break. The 
Russian citizens are not getting the practical help they need to survive 
and thrive in a time when individual contribution is mandatory for 
survival. Forget pditics. Forget missiles. Forget boundaries. The 
people need to eat, and miles and miles of red tape are not the answer 
toaproblem with the possibility of calaclysmicefTect A pragmatic {dan 
is needed to achieve practical solutimis. 

Dr. J(rim Avery, chairman of DVCs Agribusiness Dqpartmoit, 
and Mr. James Cantrill of Educational Advisory Services Int., have 
launched a project to help Russian citizens feed diemselves. h is 
Project FHendship Gardens. They are supplying Russian citizens with 
vegetable seeds to grow their own food. This is a person-to-person 
project. A tangiMe means to aid the Russian peqple.

Although tuition seems high 
when examining thetotal amount, 
82% of DVC students receive 
some type of scholarship, gram 
or financial aid package, which 
generally covers more than half 
of their tuition costs. The loss of 
state funding will, in part, be made 
up through a rise in tuition. In

The Plight of 
the Wolf 

By Un Mitk9 

Business Manager 

The essence of what is wild aiKl 
free, a predator, an eleguit and 
gracious embodiment of life- this 
is the w(df. He is a gregarious, 
highly dtvelopcA, social aniinal 
that often niat» for life and shares 
equally in the resptnisibility d 
raising the young. Unfortunately, 
the wolf is so misunderstood and 
hated that his existence is becom- 
ing threatened. Fanners and 
ranchers in Montana are cam- 
paigning the wolf to the brink of 
extinction. They are fearful of 
losing some sheep (»- cattle to 
these predators. 

In past years the wolf has been 
fiercely hunted and mtagonized 
by man. The wolTs genus has met 
the fmality of bullet and poison 
for decades and now even town 
meetings fnxn Miimesota to Mon- 
tana center themselves around 
eliminating the wolf from the 
North American Continent. 

The aspect Amoica seems to 
forget when seiuling a species 
down the peth of extincticm is 
very clear, yet it is rarely ever 
considered on behalf of the 
wolves. Too often, I read the 
wolf is a vicious killer and a sav- 
age beast that belongs only in the 
annals of an encyclopedia, in {Hc- 
ture form of course. In lurtuality, 
there has been no documented 
case in North America of a human 
ever being attadced by a healthy 
wolf. Many incident rqxxts cen- 
ter around wolf/d(>g hybrid pets 
tuming vkious. Once again, this 
is the product of human interven- 
tion. Since humans breed these 
hybrids for profit, the genetic 
mixture is often incompatible, 
which often results in the animal 
going mad. 

The pure bred Wolf is of a 
different characto^. They 
kill only what they need 
in order to feed them- 
selves and their family. 
Tbt wolf is an integral 
part of the predatori)rey 
food chain preyingmostly 
on the old and weak or 
the young and innocoit. 
Thus, the wolf functions 
to keep other herd spe- 
cies in a healthy state. 

Also, consider the wolfs 
in^ator status and contrast it to 
that of our own. We are not so 
different. Whether we realize it 
or not, the filets neatly packaged 
in the supermarket and the fast 
food at the restaurant chains didn't 
just magically appeal pre-pack- 
aged in cellophane. We too are 
predators! We, as a species, are 
predators of the most feared kind, 
because we kill not only to eat but

Many of you are well aware of the mix-up in our last Spotlight On... feature story in the April fools issue. 
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused Lita, LB and/or the school. We ask you, our 
reader to give Lita and LB a friendly hello when you see them hard at work in the buildings around campus. 

We will continue to feature special individuals, from different departments around campus, whose hard 
work and ^orts make DVC a better place to live and learn! 

for spoxi and recreation. 

It seems the American spirit is 
awfully quick to jump the gun 
v^en the roles are reversed, tt 
is time for us, yes, right here at 
DVC, to start supporting this 
pooriy misunderstood animal's 
return to the wild. We must write 
our congressmen to sui^xxl the 

bills that would allow these crea- 
tures a triumphant return to ar- 
eas of Yellowstone Park and 
other north-west regions. All of 
us, wolves and humans, birds 
and bugs, share this natural 
world. We are but a part of the 
highly interwoven structure of 
planet ei."'' Honestly, humans 
should not b« . ' ving God. We 
should adopt the rolw *" mentor 

or keeper of this beautiful planet 
As mentor, it is our duty and obli- 
gation to protect and preserve the 
natural world. If you think about it, 
it is iK>t the wolves tfiat intruded 
into our world, it is we «^o in- 
truded into their world. If we insist 
upon encroaching into their re- 
ceding natural domain, ttoi it be- 
comes our inherent resp<»isibility 
to provide for their preservation. 
Allowing the wolf to remain in ex- 
istoice must never come down to 
a monetary decision, but must be 
based strictly upaa what is right 
and what is good. All one has to do 
to understand the situation is to 
trade pi aces with the wolf for a split 
second and, instantly, what is right 
and what is wrong makes itself 
overwhelmingly apparent The 
wolf stays! It is an embodiment of 
all that is wild. It symbolizes our 
frontier history and our d^ire that 
is wild.

more about the wolf, 1 highly rec-

On the Air 

By Brue9 Eaton 

AAEJSports Ettilor 

WDVC has begiui transmission aiKl there seems to be no end in sight. The hard-line 
to the control board was repaired by Eric Bish and Jeff Firranmeyer. A signal is now 
transmitted from the student center to the dining hall. 

The system has been inspected, and the compressors are not damaged. The compres- 
sors gatho- the signal and disseminate it to the transmitters. The transmitters, however, 
are beyond repair and must be replaced. The staff is going to purchase a transmitter this 
week and begin broadcasting throughout the campus. 

New coaxial cable must be bought to carry the signal from the station to the tansmitters. 
The signal is split from the transmitters by couplers and then carried through coaxial cable 
to each donn. This is radio, and it will happen m this campus. 

The cost of this endeavor is greatly reduced by student labor. The staff plans to do most 
of the installation ttemselves. Tbey can run the coaxial cable throughout the campus, 
which is the most time-consuming labor in the fM^oject. 

The staff is planning a fund-raiser before the end of the semester to help cover the cost 
of their purdiases. WDVC needs DJ's, advertising representatives, and record company 
limoa to join the staff. It is time to get involved in a grass-roots project. 

WDVC is on the second floor of the Student Center, next to the game room. Contact 
Eric Bish in the Dean of Students office, or John Hirth, Box 61249, to get involved.

Who are those gray-haired la-

men in sweaters that clog iq) the 
cafeteria line and keep you wait-

grab all of the tables and chatter 
like teenago-s about Mark Twain, 
Dickens and the state of the 

You probably have guessed it: 
they're the latest wrinkle in con- 
tinuing education, members of the 
Center For Learning In Retire- 
ment. Tht Center was brought to 
Ddawne Valley College about 
five years ago by the late Ed 
AndenoD, who had worked in a 
similar organization on the cam- 
pus of Harvard, and who had 
loved it, and wanted to enjoy it in 
ttie community in which he had 
just retired, Doylestown. 

Leaning in retirement pro- 
grams have proved so popalai 
that they are growing by leapt 
and bounds. They work like this: 
the teachers are not paid fw their 
work, their course requirements; 
ihen is no homework and atten- 
dance is volimtary. 

Nevertheless, everybody 
takes tiie course very seriously. 
The students feel privileged to 
attend because the teachers are 
not only eiuxllaA in ttwir fields 
but for the most part have had a 
history of distinguish^! service 
that has been recognized over a 

For example, teaching world 
agriculture is no less an expert 

than Dr. Joshua Felstein, the 
former President of Del VAl. 
Teaching a course on Dickens is 
the President of the Dickens So- 
ciety, Dr. Earle Mc Williams. John 
Eastbum, a retired Vice Presi- 

^nt of the Midatlantic bank, and 
Alan Dewar, a chartered finan- 
cial planer, handle a seminar on 
finance. Where can you get all oi 
this brilliance for $35.00 a semes- 

Why do these men give up their 
time to teach the classes? Simply 
because they have all this knowl- 
edge and can't bear to see it 
wasted. They oijoy sharing it 
with others. Sharing is the word 
because some of the teachers in

Probably the best thing about 
CLR is the interchange of ideas 
that it generates. Most of tlK stu- 
dent have accumulated a life-time 
of e]q)erience and they bring this 
with them to class. They are en- 
couraged to contribute out of the 
(tepth of their knowledge. 

Now, while you are struggling 
and trying to budget your time to 
get good marks, it may seem 
strange that people go to school 
because they like to. Nothing is 
more exciting than discovering a 
new idea. Nothing. 

Being old (oops-mature) is not 
so bad. You don't have to pn-ove 
anything to anybody. You have 
enough money. You understand 
human nature and can be gener- 
ous with people who think differ- 
ently. You've learned so much, 
but you never, never leam it all. 
That's the fun of CLR. |

According to Hughes and

dianges next year. They plan to 
reorganize Studoit Govemmoit, 
gel a new budget set up to better 
meet the needs of students ai^

In addition, they also have some 
new kieas for next year's Christ-

ernment banquet. 

"We will let the students know 
who we are and what we are 
doing by implementing our open 

door policy. We need more stu-

They are both currently plan- 
ning a new off-campus advertis-

conununity and DVC together. 
"We need the surrounding 
Doylestown residents to know 
who and what we are." Hughes

need to know that DVC is not the

much, much more.

Part Two: Be Credit Card Smart 

When you sign up f ot a credit 
card you're signing on for a big 
responsibility because it's you 
who will be responsible for pay- 
ing those bills. Follow these 
golden rules of credit manage 
ment and ymill lead a fmacially 
iMalthy life: 

$ Use credit only of you are certain you will be able to repay your debt. 

$ Think through your purchase carefully before you say, "Charge it." 
Never, ever, use a credit card on impulse. ArKl never use it to lift 
your spirits because you will feel even worse what it's time to pay 

$ Save your aedit card for a real emergency. Using a card to pay for] 
s{ning vacation is neither an emergency nxx a good idea. 

Early Warning Signs of Trouble 

Here's another important fact you should know about credit: If you don't 
pay your bills on time, collection agoits and your creditors (the people 
you owe) will start sending threatening letters and calling you. They 
may even sue you! Are you heading for financial disaster? Check out 
these warning signs: 

$ You're borrowed to the maximum of your credit limit. 

$ The amount you owe increases each month. 

$ You're barely able to make the minimum mtmthly payment. 

$ You're using a aedit card for essential living expenses such as 
groceries aiui clothing. 

$ You're taking cash advances on your credit cards to make other 
credit card payments. 

$ You're spending 15 percent or more of your monthly income on 
credit card payments.

American campuses Frioid said, 
"It's the 1 990s version of McCar- 
thysm. I^)litical correcmess flies 
in face of intellectual freedom 
and free speech straight mit of an 
Orwell book. 

"The same bunch of looney 
left-wing liberals who want to 
suppress freedom of speech on 
college campuses also want to 
restrict freedom of speech in 
political campaigns. 

"They have created a mood of 
intolerance in this county. If you 
dare to disagree with their liberal 
point of view you are immedi- 
ately branded with their vogue 
name of the month, be it anti- 
semetic, hcnnophobic or racist. 

"I have received criticism from 
both the liberal Fellowship Com- 
mission and the Philadelphia 
Conunission on Human Relations. 
Fw example, when I criticize 
Arlen Specter for supporting the 
$1 Obillion loan to Israel or block- 
ing the sale of F-15's to Saudi 
Arabia, Tm labeled Anti-Semetic. 

"When I mention that I have 
accepted Jesus Christ as my per- 
s(»al Savior, the liberals accuse 
me of 'fanning the embo-s cf re- 
ligious discord or conflict." When 
it becomes necessary for a public 
offlcial (X a candidate to apolo- 
gize for publicly ^knowledging 
his God, then this nation is in^ed 
in dire straits." 

Riend asked, "Where were 
the Philadelphia Conmission on 
Human relations and fellowship 
Commission when the Philadel- 
phia Daily News r eported on 
March 25, 1992 that Arlen Spec- 
termaliciously manipulated a Sis- 
ter of Mercy nun in a political 
radio commercial in a blatant at- 
tempt to influence Catholic vot- 
ers? Specter was forced to pull 
the conunercial and the silence of 
the liberal, do-gooder interest 
groups. It was clear that their in- 
terest in intergroup harmony is 
very selective. 

IMend said, "Specter has not 
cosponsored Senator Larry 
Craig's (R klaho) legislation S 
1484 The Freedom of Speech 
onCampus Act of 1991 ."If Arlen 
Specter were as concemed about 
free speech as he is about taking 
political contributions from radi- 

■ left-wing groi^M sudi as the radical 
gay rights group. Human Rights Cam- 
paign Fund, he wmild co-sponsor 
Senator Craig's legislation. 

Friend said, if elected to the Senate, 
he wouki co-sponsor and push for the 
passage of The Freedom of Speedi 
on Campus Act, which states that stu- 
dents attending Universities, or other 
institutions that receive federal funds 
should be able to exercise full rights 
to freedom of speech on campus free 
frtnn official intrusion. 

Friend concluded by stating, "Our 
state and nation face serious ptob- 
lems, which are not going to be solve 
by name calling by the left. We must 
be willing to have open and frank 
debates on public policy without re- 
verting to the intolerance that is pa- 
vading our college campuses." ■

Some Growing Pains 

DVC Women's Softball 

By Shannon Murphy 

Staff Writer 

The DVC Softball team, coached by Linda Fleischer is really on the 
ball. Already this season, the has surpassed last season's record. The 
team's overall record is 5-9 and they are 2-2 in the MAC conference. 
Coach Fleischer is hopeful that the team will win five or six more 
games this season and show even greater improvement over last year's 
record. Coach Fleischer said. "The team in general is young. We are 
going through some growing pains right now. We lack a solid pitcher, 
Imt we are improving as a team every game." 

The team is getting into the groove. Kelly Sciss (centerfield) has been 
hitting well this season, and both Kate Flynn (outfield) and Becky AlUnan 
(shortstop) have been showing a great deal of strength offensively and 
defensively. When asked how the team was playing. Lisa Tomko said, 
"I think that we have a lot of quality players on the team, but we need 
to leam to worry about ourselves instead of what everyone else is 
doing. We need to keep our chins up and have a positive attitude".! 



We recently received an anony- 
mous letter to the EditOT concav- 
ing security. Our editorial policy 
states that all letters submittedmust 
include the author'sname for clari- 
fication purposes, especially 
when specifically addressing an 
individual. We will be more than 
happy to publish your concern if 
you follow the proper proce- 


(Continued from Page 1) 

Many people are wondering why 
tuition is not lowered through the 
use of the development program 
funds. The answer is that money 
taken in through this program is 
used for refurbishing buildings, 
building new facilities, faculty 
development funds and some 
scholarships, whereas money 
from the operating budget is put 
toward fmancial aid, salaries, main- 
tenance, and all other basic oper- 
ating expenses. 
Now that you know who will be 
affectni by this raise in tuition and 
when it will be implemented, the 
final question is how much. There 
are two separate tuition pack- 


ages. One for students entering 
after June, 1991 (I^shmen and 
Mw transfers) and one for stu- 
dents entering pricNr to that date. 
The following charges which 
apply to students altering afta 
7/91 are combined with enhanced 
financial aid, which also began at 
that time: 

Tuitiwi/fees: $5,545 

Room: $980 


(16 meal plan) $1135 
(20 meal plan) $1260 

Equine Fee: $1000 

Those inclined in this pbji will 
have a higher dollar figure due 
to the new increased fmancial 
aid package. 

The following breakdown is for 
students who came to the college 

Tuiuon/fees: $5,095 

Room: $980 


(16 meal plan) $1135 
(20 meal plan) $1260 

Equine fee: $1(X)0 

This package is adjusted for 
those who are not on the new 
financial aid program. 
Eventually, as each incoming 


class is put into this program, the 

tuition diiferoice will level out, 
and all students will pay the same 
base tuition amount. This plan is 
slightly differem than some other 
college programs in which tuition 
is raised in one lump sum and then 
frozen for four years. 
Statistics show that 40% of those 
seeking higher education choose 
to attend independent colleges and 
50% of them earn degrees. The 
advantages to a small private school 
are small classes, better faculty to 
student ratio and a warm family 
atmosphere. At DVC, most faculty 
members are full-time which makes 
a difference in cost and faculty 
availability. Many administrators 
at Del Val also teach courses which 
puts them in direct contact with the 
students, unlike most large state 
schools. DVC is very competitive 
in the professional ranks. The 
school has a very high placement 
rate, with 95% of its graduates gain- 
ing employment in their chosen 
fields or entering graduate school 
within a year of graduation. Re- 
cently, Del Val has expanded its 
majors in fields such as criminal 
justice and education. The 
school's fiihire plan is to add more 
majors and diversify its curricu- 
lum. ■ 

To the Editor: 

In response to tfie letter from Amy Lulnmky. 

I disagree with your letta about the check cashing policy. Studotts 
have every right to speak up itooat not being ibk to get their money. 
You said it yourself, the check cashing policy is a service provided for 
DVC students. Since it is a sovice to students, they should either have 
it or get rid of it if they can't keep with the demands. 

As for talking to Mrs. Pratt when the si^ says,"No check cashing No 
exceptions" it means just that. The only way Mrs. Pratt could have 
helped that guy who needed money would have been to cash his check. 
If you make exceptions for one person you have to make exceptions 
for everyone!

An Influence 
on the Developement of their Students 

Throughout the U.S., small pri- 
vate colleges are best known for 
die close and friendly repore be- 
tween studoits aiui faculty. Many 
students dxoo$e to attend anall 
independent colleges for this rea- 
son alone. Not only do their in- 
structms know them byname, 
they also intoact in campus ac- 
tivities and oicourage students to 
do the same. 

Faculty at small {nivate colleges 
can encourage or discourage stu- 
dents because they are very in- 
fluential when it comes to stiKlent 
thought and attitude. A faculty 
member who constantly displays 
a negative, less than enthusiastic 
attitude and refuses to cooperate 
or participate with otho-s in cam- 
pas ^tivities can have a detri- 
mental effect on these young 
minds as well as the entire cam- 
ixis. His^er students will 

mirror the image they observe 
and become or remain inactive 

A prime example of this be- 
havior can be seen in some of the 
faculty members right here at 
DVC. There are a few select 
faculty members who do onit 
slightly negative attitudes which 
seem to infect sane students. 
Additionally, there are others in 
the faculty who's attitudes ex- 
hibit an absolute lack of enthusi- 
asm. There is no place in an 
educational environment for 
these types of attitudes, even if 
they stem frran feelings of "low 
wages" or from working here 
too long and beccnning stagnant 
themselves. PartofourfacuUy's 
job is to encourage students to 
become active and contributing 
members of our campus commu- 
nity. One example of the cloud 
of iwgativian and lack of involve 

ment on this campus can be viewed 
through examining the turn out 
for Pride and Polish Day. Out of 
1,300 people, studoits and faculty 
combined, there wae only 200 
contributes. College should pro- 
vi(te a social education as well as 
an acadonic one. It is imperative 
that the faculty share with the stu- 
dems, who are the future leaders 
of our country, lessons and advan- 
tages of contributing to our com- 
munities. It is through these out- 
of-class lesswis that students learn 
about every-day life. 

There are many outstanding fac- 
ulty members on this campus as 
well as many exceptional stu- 
dents. Watch out for those with 
negative attitiKles, ieam to gather 
infoination and make your own 
judgement while keeping an c^n 
and positive mind as you strive to 
be the best that you can be.

An Attempted Trip to the 
Philadelphia Art Museum 

By Paul E. Schneider 

Co- Editor 

On Sunday afternoon March 8, 1 991 . my girlfriend and I headed out 
for the Philadelphia Art Museum. Upoi arrival in center city, we 
decided to first find a hot dog stand and have lunch. Once we finished 
with this questimable cuisine, we started back toward the car. On our 
way we came across an interesting looking tniilding roughly 1/4 mile 
from the PhiladelfAia An Museum. Out of curiosity, we took a detour 
to explwe its afdiaic domain which resulted in our staying the remain- 
der of the afternoon. 

The Rodin museum was foimded by a man named Jules E. K(Iastbaum 
who was one of Philadetphia's great movie theater magnates and one 
of its best known iAilailtim)pists. He began collecting Rodin's work in 
1923 and by the time of his death, in 1926, he had the greatest Rodin 
collection out«de of Paris. The museum, foumied by his estate, opened 
in 1 929 andhous« 124 sculptures. Mastbaum dedicated the museum "to 
his fellow citizeas.** 

As we were walking by the museum, a statue that sits out front caught 

my eye; it was a copy of the famous sculpture, "Tlie Thinker". 

Recognizing this from a texttxwk I decided to explore what was behind 

it. As we walked throu^ the entrance gate, which simulates the 

monumrat of Ro(i&i't burial place in Paris, we entered a courtyard with 

a rectangular pond in die center. Across the coiutyard sits the front of 

the building to which is liOached one of Rodin's four molds of ^Tte Gates 

of Hell." Thu lifetime work, which he never completed, is one of his 

most funoui] Jtiikapowerful sculpture that stands 20 feet high and 13 

feet wide. One could come and study this (me piece for a whole day, 

if not for a month or so. Many of the pieces inside the museum, such as 

"Eternal Springtime", have been incorporated into the "Gates of Hell", 

which was his most challenging and daring work of ait. It gave him the 
(^>portunity to put many figures on a small scale. The 1 80 agonized and 

writhing figures are invdved in contorted movements, >i^ile ^The 
Thifdier", who is positioned at the top, diligottly ccmtonplates the fate 
of mankind. 

Afto- we fmished examining "The Gates of Hell", we ento-ed the 
building to find six life-sized figttfes,"The Burghers of Calais", posi- 
tioned in the mkklle oi the hall. Not knowing what they were, but 
realizing the significance of their positioning, I bought a guide book. 
Seeing my interest in this group of sculptures, a museum security guard 
iqjproached and "briefed" us on their story. I was pleasantly surprised 
by this chubby, middle-aged, fellow as he shared his vast wealth of 
information on *'The Burghers of Calais," Rodin, and Mastbaum with 
us. As we moved through the rest oithe museum, I came to realize how 
intrigued I was with the perfection and detail of Rodin's w(Hk. The 
pieces I saw and appreciated most were the ones that expressed his 
view of women's beauty. A piec« that absolutely intrigued me was 
Rodin's sculpture, "The Sirens," which was done in plaster as well as 

The emotion that pours out of this, and all of Rodin's work, is intriguing. 
As I thought only a half an hour or so had passed, I glanced at my watch 
and realized the aftemocm had disappeared and it was time to leave. 

This extraordinary place is only one example of the many free sights 
to see in Philjuleli^ia. It is an excellent way to relax and "get away" 
from it all. ■

Philadelphia 's Culture, 
Science and Art 

By Marci Carroll 

St^ Writer 

The city of Biiladeli^ia offers so many opportunities to leam about 
science, culture, and art. If science is your beaker oX chemicals, ttie 
Franklin Institute may be just for you.. It houses a science museum, a 
planetarium, and the Benjamin Franklin National Manorial. The science 
museum is a %Tt3i deal of fiin that allows visitors to touch almost every- 
thing. There is even a giant walk-throu^ heart that enables you to hea* 
the heat beat and see all the arteries. The Franklin Institute is located on 
20th St. and Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Their phone niunber is (215) 
448- 1200. It is best to call before going becMise there are always special 
events going on that you may not want to miss. For instance May 2 1 st will 
be the premier showing of a Rolling Stones concert movie whidi w^ll 
be shown on a four-story high screen accompanied by 56 speakers. 

A hidden cultural spot in Philly is the Afro-Amoican Histtrioal and 

Cultwal Museum. It focuses mainly on the history of black Philadel- 

phians, but also (m black accomplishments in the rest of the United States. 
Paintings, sculptures, prints and the performing arts capture the evolution 

of Afro-Amerions while the paintings tell a chronological stwy. The 

museum can be found cm 7th and Arch Streets. 

If you are looking for a peaceful afternoon full of Monet, Degas aiKi 
VanGc^h. the Philadelphia Museum of Art is just the place. (Forall of you 
movie buffs, that is the building writfa all the steps that Rocky ran up.) A 
visit there makes for a relaxing and educatioiuU day. There are so many 
wondolul masterpieces imder one roof, it is a "can't miss" i^ace. The 
museum is located on the Benjamin Franklin Paikway apd W^ streets. 
There is an entrance fee except oa. Sunday's from 12-lpm. Fot mwe 
information and dates for special gallery openings call. (215) 787-548$.

Dream, Inspiration, Fulfillment, Legacy 

This was the title of the keynote 
speech delivered by Vice Chair- 
man of iht Board of Trustees, 
Arthur Foley, at this year's an- 
nual Founder's Day ceremonies. 
In his speech. Mr. Foley re- 
viewed the college's history, em- 
phasizing the original contribu- 
tions of Dr. Joseph Krauskopf, 
who founded the college in 
1 896 as the National Farm School 
at the suggestion of Count Leo 
Tolstoy. Dr. Krauskopf started 
a school that was intended to 
improve the difficult conditions 
and urban exploitations of 
young Jewish people. He be- 
came the school's chief fund- 
raiser, promoter, defender, and 
PR person. Under his presi- 
dency, the original 122 acres 
and a few buildings inaeased to 
473 beautiful, rolling acres with 
many buildings.

The next major turning point dis- 
cussed by Mr. Foley was the ad- 
vent of Dr. James Work as presi- 
dent towards the close of W.W. II.

Ram Pages in Revie w 

Well , here we are at the final issue for the 91 -92 sanester. Since last 
December, Ram Pages has undergone some major reorganization and 
changes. Five months and six issues later Delaware Valley College 
finally has a truly respectable college paper. 

Ever since Del Val's paper took on the name Ram Pages in Oct(*er 
of 1 980 it has flip-flopped back and forth from two to four- paged, letter/ 
tabloid sized church style newsletters. As we asked around and 
researched what you. the students, wanted, we found the answer to be 
a real newspaper. As we pursued our goal by ailarging the paper, we 
also thought it would be interesting to add some color. As we began 
looking into all of our options, it turned out we could jwint a true college 
size ^apa on newsptqper print for the same cost and work hours. The 
end result is obvious. We now have a multi-page newspaper with color 
that address^ all student concerns and keq» the campus informed of 
tipcoming events. 

Working cm Ram Pag^ has turned from an ominmis task into a 
imceless work experience that is actually a great time. There is 
something here for evayone of any class w any major. Writing articles, 
which is actually a small part of all the various jobs, is one way to let the 
campus know your cmcems or interests. If you are not partial to writing; 
you can apply yourself in areas like photc^aphy, advertising, laycnit ox 
computer format and entry. 

The benefite to be reaped from working with Ram Pages vary from 
academic ai^evements, to business^ob contacts, to being able to say 
you were a part of a quality publication. That is exactly where we are 
now. Every day we are working at improving the quality of our paper. 
We have come a long way, bttt we have a long way to go. 

As far as we have come with the paper, it is our goal to do the same

with our business and advertising 
departments. There are two main 
' reascms we wish to develop these 
departments. Hrst, it will be a 
pl«:e for business majors, or any 
(me else, to develop and utilize 
practical skills beyond those 
learned in the classroom. Sec- 
ond, we would like to bring the 
Doylestown conmunity and Del 
Val College closer together. 

As a review and a slight glance 
into the future we will leave you 
with a few thoughts. As students 
it is your privilege to belong to 
your college paper. You have 
the right to voice your (pinions 
and to be heard. For this to be 
successful as a college paper, we 
i»ed your involvement. A col- 
lege newspaper is a reflec- 
tion of the campus and its 
students. We want you to 
become an active part of 
Ram Pages and a part of Del 
Val's history. It's your choice 
whether or not you leave behind 
something to always be proud of. 



This Week's 
Spotlight On... 

By Jen Misko 

Business Manager 

Everyone knows Steve Ze- 
nko... well maybe not, but he has 
certainly affect«l each of our 
lives. He is the gentleman at 
Delaware Valley with the grand 
title of Dir«:tor of Admissions. 
He and his i^fanissions team, sta- 
tioned in tlw flnancial aid build- 
ing, recruit mA review entrance 
applications for prospective 
DVC students. 

Mr. Zoiko sums up his job 
hoe at Del Val in a rather con- 
cise statement. He says he and 
his staff are on a continuous 
quest "fa- qualified students 
that fit the Delaware Valley 
College philosophy." 

He also ackls that he is very 
optimistic idx)ut Del Val's new 
adinissi(Hi {vogram and feels that 
President West is leading the 
college in a positive directicm. 
For the past two years, Del Val ' s 
enrollment has been reaching 
near capacity limits. 

A Better Place To Be: 

When asked why he en- 
joyed being at Del Val, Steve 
replied he enjoys the interac- 

Steve Zenko 

tim with the young people on 
campus. He stated that "it is easy 
to get out of bed in tbc morning, 
the students give me enthusiasm 
and keep the days fresh and inter- 
esting." (te 
the home-frcsit, Steve has a wife, 
Nancy, and has two dau^ters, 
Lisa and Krista. He is an avid bas- 
ketball player and golfer. Steve 
spends tiis leisure time reading. 
He reads three or four newspa- 
pers a day. Wow! 

His advice to the students of 
Del Val- "Your college years are 
the best years of your life, the last 

big 'hoorah* before you hit the 
real world • appreciate them, en- 
joy them and get involved while 
you are here." Steve firmly be- 
lieves that the college is here for 
the students. It is our voices, our 
thoughts and our student gov- 
ernment that make this college 

Mr. Zenko is always wcs-king 
diligently in his office and his door 
is always open. Be sure to wave 
or say "hi" when you pass his 
office to pick up your check or 
take care of some pending finan- 
cial matters. 

Happy Birthday Spider-Man 

By P. Fischer 

Staff Writer 

The Marvel Comics character. 
The Amazing Spider-Man, turns 
thirty years old this year. This 
marks another milestone of the 
galaxy of comic books. Super- 
man and Batman of DC comics 
are over fifty years old, as well as 
Marvel's C^tain America. Mar- 
vel Comic's Incredible Hulk and 
Fantastic Four also celebrate their 
thirteemh birthdays this year. 

In commemOTation of Spider- 
Man's anniversary. Marvel Com- 
ics plais to {Hiblish full holograi^- 
cal covers for three of the five 
regular, monthly Spider-Man 
canu;s. Special stories are also 
plannni, including fresh views of 
his Q-eation. 

Spider-Man was created by 
Marvel Comics' Stan Lee and 
Steve Ditko in 1962 to be a 
differoit kind 
of super-hero. 
He didn't wear 
a cape and he 
had real life 
problems. Spi- 
der-Man was a 
high school 
He was the 
loser from 
down the street 
who had prob- 
lems fitting in 
with his pe^s 
and girls. At 
first, Spk^-Man used his pow- 
ers for money and an inflated 
ego. But then Peter Parker's 
unde was murdovd by a bur- 
glv. md S{nder-Man could 



have stopped it (Hily days before. 
He felt guilty because he was gifted 
with great powers and failed to use 
them to {»-otect 
the innocent. 
Parker, as Spi- 
d e r - M a n , 
learned that 
with great 
power comes 
Even so, Spi- 
dey never 
used his pow- 
ers to get re- 
venge on those 
who treated 
him badly. 
The Spider- 
Man stories remain rooted in 
sponsibility morality plays. Msuiy 
hot comic characters today kill or 
use excessive violence to punish 

their foes. Spidey remains to be 
(»ie of the only modem heroes 
who doesn't kill his foes; instead, 
he jails them. 

Thirty years from his concep- 
tion, Spider-Man has changed 
little. He's only a few years older 
than he was when he received 
his super strength and his ability 
to climb shea* surfaces. He's 
even happily married, and the 
formula is still there. The red and 
blue webbed wonder swinging 
high over New York on his wrist 
web shooters is a legendary 
hero. Spider-Man is the star of 
five different monthly comics. 
So, if you remember reading 
about him in your youth, you 
shoukl pick up some new comic 
books. Maybe you can fmd new 
inspiration to your own imagina- 


Sexual Harassment Policy 

From the 
Office of the 

Sexual harassment will not be permitted at Delaware Valley Col- 
lege. In order to insure that relaticmships betweoi perscms on our 
campus are aipropriate and within current guidelines, a complaint 
handling system is being developed by an ^ jJiQC committee of 
concerned members of our College cmnmunity. I have requested that 
(HIT administrators review our present sexual harassment policy, 
research current legislation, case law, government regulations and 
commentary of professional academic associations, and share that 
information with the M llQ£ committee. 

By early summer, updated policy and the ccnnplaint handling system 
will be publicized to the whole College commimity. In the meantime, 
any instances of sexual harassment will be dealt with promptly by the 
office of the President.

Founders Day 

Dr. Woric assumed presidency at 
a time when tl^ school faced de- 
dining enrollment because of 
the war and faced further difficul- 
ties with the onset of the Korean 
War. Nonetheless, Dr. Work 
successfully fought for the pres- 
ervati(Hi of the school as an inde- 
pendent institution. It was prima- 
rily due to his efforts that the school 
became a fully accredited four- 
year college in 1949. 
Mr. Poley also recognized more 
recent college leaders, including 
former President Joshua Feld- 
stein, who is currently President 
Emeritus and a member of the 
college Board of Trustees. Im- 
portantly, Mr, Poley stressed the 
most recent challenge facing the 
college when, a year and a half 
ago some of the college uustees 
advocated the affiliation of the 
college with the state university 
system to solve current financial 
exigencies. That proposal was 
finally rejected by the Board of 
Trustees. The college did not 
affiliate and remains pnvate and 

Page 3 

indepoident. A new administra- 
tion, under the directim of Pnsi- 
dent George West, remains to- 
tally committed to the colkge's 
continued independence. 

Following Foley's comments, 
awards were bestowed upon 
members of ow college. Twenty 
year service awards were pre- 
sented to college dean Craig Hill, 
assistant biology professor John 
Standing and the late Sally R. 
Smith, a member of the English 

The student government chose 
facility coordinator David Mull- 
ins for its annual award. Mullins 
also won the Staff Member of the 
year award. 

The Distinguished Faculty 
Member Award went to assistant 
biology professor Ronald John- 
son. The Founders Day Award, 
given to a student who shows out- 
standing ability ir. campus, went 
to senior horticulture major Eric 

A $5,000 scholarship awarded 
annually in memory of business- 
man William W. Smith was won by 
Marvin E. Zimmcmian, a senior

Institutional Injustice 

On April 29 two Los Angeles police officers. Sergeant St»%y C. 
Koon and Theodore J. Brisneo, were acquitted of the brutal assault of 
Rodney G. King. Former (rfficer, Tunothy E. Wiml, was also acquitted 
of all charges. Office Laurence M. Powell was acquitted of two 
charges, and a mistrial was ruled on the charge of excessive use of force 
as a police officer. Reaction. Stuimed silence and then a destructive 
rampage throughout the city of Los Angeles. Questions. Hundreds. 
Answer. Very few. 

How could a police department that has virtually admitted its guilt 
outside of the courtroom be exonerated of their guih inside our halls of 
justice? A rookie officer. Timothy E. Wind, was dismissed by L.A. Police 
Chief Daryl F. Gates a month after the beating. Dismissal is the ultimate 
act of punishment, save criminal prosecution. This action was a clear 
adinissionof guilt by the LA. Police Department. Why would a police 
department dismiss an innocent officer? 

Why did Chief Gates suspend officers, Ko<h). Powell, and Brisneo, 
without pay the same day Officer Wind was dismissed? Is this not an act 
of punishment and another admission of guilt by the Los Angeles Police 

Why did the L.A. Police Department punish ten of the nineteen 
police officers who watched the beating and did nothing to stop it, and 
after the grand jury announced it would not press charges on those 

Why did Officer Brisneo try to distance himself from the other three 
officers at the trial? He was charged with assault md of using excessive 
force as a police officer, based on one kick to the back of Rodney King's 
neck while he lay on the ground. Brisneo claims that his kick was meant 
to induce Mr. King to lie still on the ground so the beating would stop. 
The videotape also shows Brisneo attempting to block a baton swing 
m^le by Officer Powell. 

Why would Brisneo, a career office with tenure, testify in court that 
his fellow defendants were "out of ccmtroP at the scene, unless he and 
his lawyer were not concenwd about the outcmne of the case? Brisneo 
is white. There can be no argument of racial bias distorting his 
perception (tf the event and the actions of his fellow officers. How can 
ajury so easily dismiss the account of an eyewitness who is also a police 

The primary argument of the defense was that the uninsuucted eye 
could not truly understaml that the beating of Rodney King was a 
means to cmtrd his aggressive resistance. This kind of subjugation 
is justifiable force given the circumstances of the incident. In other 
words the four officers struck Rodney King 56 times in 81 seccnids 
because they had to. Rodney King was the aggressor and in control 
dl the situation, and the police had gain control to make a safe arrest. 
Rodney King was an unarmed, intoxicated man who took on four 
officers and was in control ci the situation. How can a man be unarmed, 
heavily intoxicated, and in control of a situation involving four primary 
dfico-s and nineteen officers who acted as back-up? 

The jury acquitted the four men df ten of the eleven charges in the 
case. To the jury, there was reasonable doubt involved in the case. Yes, 
the jury might be uninstructed in prapa police procedure, but they had 
a police officer testify that the other (rfficers were "out of control". 
Besides that, did the jury not feel the imitality of those 56 blows? 

The jury agreed with the defense Rodney King was in control of 
the situation while he was on the ground being beaten. The ctefense's 
argument was that Rodney King instigated Um violence and craitinued 
to resist, and the officers subdued the suspect using normal police 
procedure. Would not any man, unless he was unconscious, attemiX to 
evade blows inflicted by baton? Was that videotape an example of 
normal and acceptable police procedure? 

Did Rodney King receive a fair trial by his peers? The case was tried 
in a predcnninantly white, conservative, Simi Valley, California. Ten 
whites,one Korean and one Mexican sat in the jurors box. The jurors 
refused to publicly comment on the verdict immediately after the trial, 
but some jurors were anonymously interviewed later. Oiw juror 
commented <m the relationship between the verdict and the riots: "I 
think they were just waiting for something to happen so that they could 
go out and destroy peqile's Uves and their property." This commoit 
is hauntingly reminiscent of the (pinion some Los Angeles citizens 
have of their police department 

The analysis of the charges, trial and the verdict will be discussed for 
years to cone, ortmtil another case of police teoitality is brought intothe 
public arena. The ultimate question is whether or not this country 
learns from this tragedy and rights its wrongs, or allows the violence 
inheroit in our society to fester on the institutional level.

What a Mess 

Wtm MBI flMM WBUm VHI HMV ■■• mmm warn mamm mmm 

Paul DiMaria is the 1992 winner of the Dow Jones Wall

Business Administration faculty. This award is based 
upon high academic standing and service to the college. 
Some of Paul's achievments are listed below:

If Delaware Valley College is an Agricultural school, why does the 
campus lode the way it does? Sure, the campus has some beautiful areas, 
but compared to other colleges, such as Beaver or Ursinus (alibo^al arts 
schools), this campus is an over grown and mismanaged mess. We are 
preparing studoits for professional careers in landsc{4)ing, yet the 
campus we live and leam cm seems to lack any professiomdism in this 

This problem is not only evident in our landsc^ing department and 
major, but also in the house-keeping departmoit There is a great deal 
of apathy and laziness in many of the employees who are in charge of 
emptying and collecting trash. They feel they don't have to pick up the 
trash lying beside the cans and around the campus. If it is not in a bag, 
it just lies whoe it is. Does this college not have the control or 
management skills necessary to encourage their workers to do their 
jobs? I doubt it, but perhaps next year this school should start practicing 
what it preaches, at least from tlw Business Department's uigle. 

None of this matters if the student body, staff, and employees dcm't

One of the fvst things people see is tlK grounds, aiul it certainly has an 
effect on their impression of the college. Schools of die Arts exhibit 
fresh and unprecedented art work, emphasizing their taloits, proce- 
dures and most of all their school reputation. This is nothing new, 
students always strive to be the best in their field and show it. So why 
doesn't DVC get it's head out of the dirt and start Uuidscainng it; making 
a standard for all other environmental schools to work towards. We are 
all {voud of our college, now we just have to make it diow!

Aggie Baseball 

By Bruce Eaton 

Associate Eitttor 

The Lady Aggies finished their 
1992 season with a 2-6 record in 
the MAC conferoice and S-21 
overall. Coach Linda Fleischer 
said, "Not a terrific record, but 
this season is part of a rebuilding 
process. I can see positive signs 
of improvement." 

Fleisdwr feels that as the sea- 
son progressed the individual 
players began to knit as a team, 
and her younger players im- 
proved with every game. Fleis- 
cher said, "We have a good 
nucleus of field players. Audrey 
Diehl (Jr.,C) is an oithusiastic 
player, she really sparks the team. 
Joan Thomas (R.,2B) has bios- 
smned into a good all-around 
player, and she has found her 
niche. Kristi Cehula (R-.,1B) has 

the potential to be a super player. 
The team has potential, and it is my 
job to encourage aggressive 

Beischer's goal is to build a team 
that dominates on the field. Fleis- 
cher said, "We are out to change 
game attitudes. This team is here 
to play and win, not just show. It is 
my job to motivate the players to 
play to win." 

Jen Siedel (Sr.,3B) has been an 
aggressive player all season. Fleis- 
cher said, "Jen is an exciting per- 
sonality and this excitement 
rubs off on her play. She plays 
good, tough defoise." 

Kate Flynn (So.,P/OF) is "an in- 
tense player who is aware of ev- 
erything that is going on in the 
field . She's mentally involved and

/hear thunder 

Crashing like swords 

The light off the glinting steel is reflected in the jagged

Power surrounds me 

Swirling like the magijc of a thousand images 

Alighting in my eyes and soul 

Breathing my breath 

Beating in my heart 

Dancing within my mind 

I must dance with it 

Around and around. My robes flying about me like 

feathers of silk 

Twirling to the music of power 

The sweetest music of all 

It calls to me 

Let me dance with you 

For you are mine 

And nothing can take you from me 


The power becomes flesh 

Dancing out of the shadows 

With steps soft and soundless 

But filled with inner music 

A stranger to me, but known 

For the power swirls in his eyes 

He smiles 

And holds out his hand 

Dance with me 

And again the music soars 

Its beat my own heart 

And now with his 

Together we whirl 

Faster andfaster 

Around and around 

Up in the air I jump 

And he catches me 

One hand strays through his soft hair 

Into his eyes I stare 

And his into mine 

Until his head inclines 

And I feel his lips touch my own 

There we stay for an everlasting moment 

Until the last drop of rainfalls 

Then he disappears back into the shadows 

And the music ends...

Cultural Enrichment 

Continmdfhm Previous Page 

brow things in order to gradu- 
ate? Yes, and these require- 
ments include, 3 museum trips, 
3 concerts, 3 major sporting 
evoits and any S lectures, 
soninars, slide presentations or 
field trips. These are the re- 
quirements as stated by the Cul- 
tural Enrichment Advisory Com- 
mittee: Dr. Ziemer, Dr. Dia- 
mond, Mr. Lawrence and Mrs. 

After all, who wouldn't be put 
off by Cultural Enrichment ? 
You go to watch and listen to 

people, music, and objects that 
are entertaining, and ymi get 
much more than a Cultural 
Enrichment credit back. You end 
up receiving a personal ac- 
knowledgement of an a{^recia- 
tionofapast,or different, kind of 
life that, normally, we don 't see or 
participate in. Those feelings that 
we carry hrane from Cultural 
Enrichment events deserve to 
be written about maybe in the 
DVC Gleaner or here in the Ram 

Cultural Enrichment credits 
were started in 1 988 and the Class 
of 92' is the first to feel it's full 
power. It was created as a result 

of poor student attendance at 
DVC spoisored concerts. Be- 
sides, hoiKstly, it's a payoff for 
students who want to attend and 
bribery for students who might 
not be originally motivated to go. 
So, we need to get a better 
definiticRi of "Cultural Enrich- 
ment" for our incoming fresh- 
men to uiKlerstand next year. 
We need to figure out if a cred- 
ited class, such as Chorale, can 
"double dip" for their concerts. 
Is this fair? Can a concert be 
counted as more? Can a concert 
be only worth a fraction of one 
of the 14 points thai we need? 
What if those who take Band or 

Cho-ale don't have to get a Cul- 
tural Enrichment credit at all. The 
Cultural Enrichment credit is can- 
celed by the Chorale or Band 

If you pass the criteria or test 
to be allowed to sing at a concert 
isn't the coacett only a way of 
showing off our classroom 
learned accomplishments? 

I think if we revise some of 
what exists as Cultural Enrich- 
ment and communicate its aims 
and goals to the entire student 
body that it will pay off in the end. 
Students will learn that being 
brave enough to Join in, learn and 
participate in new things can pay 

off. I think this is what Cultural 
Enridiment is all about. In clos- 
ing, I think what we need are 
answers to all of our structuring 
questions. We need order and 
coherence to clear up this jumbled 

I would like to acknowledge 
Dr. Ziemer, Mr. Lawerence and 
Mrs. Roberts for background on 
this article. Any further questions 
on Cultural Enrichment should be 
addressed to them, along with 
Dr. Diamond. They are on the

First A-Day Experience 

What An Experience It Was! 

By Cindy Mleziva 
AAE Editor 

Every week dijring the past 
two semesters represoitaiives 
of various clubs and (vganiza* 
tions of Delaware Valley Col- 
iefe collectively pimn^ what 
A-Day 1992 would be. As a 
freshmm. I followed aimig at 
these meetings. ! couldnH be- 
lieve all that had to be approved 
and voted on. As A-Day came 
near, the work really began. 
The ^jpearance <tf tiecMiixtt 
changed to one of mil intfa 
booths which needed to be 
painted. T\m majority of tite 
"setting up- wcwlt for A-Day 
was done the Friday before. 
Eva7(me gathered aroumi the 

information booth and waited for 
their assignments. There was 
quite a few pec^le there, yet I 
was $uri»-ised not to see a bunch 
more. Nevertheless, everything 
from carrying up the ticket booths 
(which were (wetty heavy) to 
raakuig even the garbage cans 
look good was accomplished. 
The A-Day committee and all 
those who pitched in did a great 
job in in^qiaring the canq>us fw 
what is Hk kiggeat event of the 

Afierthecainpus was piepared, 
dabi and organizations readied 
tear exhibitions, ftwn horse 
shows to ma^ itewf» ev»y 


major, club, mi organization was 
refxesented. As a fireshman, I 
was very glad I could help my club 
and the A-Day committee in the 
jM^aration because I dra't think 
anyone can fully appreciate and 
enjoy A-Day until they become a 
pan of making it happen. Being 
involved early in college life gives 
only that much more time to do it 
again, and when its all over, and 
everything is numing smoothly, 
one can relax and enjoy A-day 
with their friends and family know- 
ing the accomplishment they 
helped their college lOtain. It re- 
ally is a great weekend for all.

Pulling a Healthy All Nighter 

CoUtgiMtt JomrHMt 


Yes, it's thit time again-the se- 
mester is giinding down ami the 
pressure is Iniilding. Even the lazi- 
est students are spending long 
hours writing papers and cramming 
for exams. Scnne will have to stay up 
all night-and every(»)e has heard 
about some over-tired student who 
slept through an exam. 

You vowed that this semester 
you'd stay ahead, but it always seons 
like you're two steps behind. 
You've barely lodced at the mate- 
rial for tomorrow's two tests, so 
tcmight you'll need to pull an all- 
nighter-but you will need to 
cover everything and have 
enough energy to Uiink at exam- 

To have oiough energy to 
study and be ready for 
tomomw's exams, follow these 
guidelines. First, maintainagood 
mental attitude. Think about 
staying up all night as a long- 
distance race. You don't want 
to bum yourself out byswint- 
ing the first few miles. Realize 
the amoimt of studfinljf you have 

aheid of you, and maintain a steady 
pace. Dtm'tJttyouneU'get over* 
whelmed or work too fast-you'U 
either become frustrated and give 
up or won't retain it. Reserve exam 
anxiety for tomorrow; tonight, just 
steadily study at a decent clip. 
Second, eat to fuel your body for 

a long night In a normal IS or 
16-hDurday, M(»t studoitseat 
thiw meals, or one every five 
hours. Tonight you'll be an 
extra eight hours, and you will 
definitely need more calories 
to stay itt:tive. But don't eat a 
large meal at one sitting; when 
you stuff yourself, the body 
diverts energy to digestion and 
will make you tired. It's best to 
eat small portions over the 
course of the evening. Stick to 
real food like an apple or sand- 

which rather than chowing 

down on candy bars. Sugary 
junk food provides energy, but 
it over stimulates the body and 
leads to bumout. Instead, have 
a sandwich and chips between 
chapters ot aa t»«aks. 

Third, understand the pitfalls 
of using cafiTeine as a crutch

stay awake. Afto- drinking a caf- 
feinated bevera^ such as cof- 
fee, tea, chocolate and certain 
soft drinks, caffeine levels will 
peak in your body in about a half 
hour ami decline over five to 
seven hours. While caffeine 
seons to temporarily increase 
your energy level, its effect 
wears off in an h(nir and is re- 
pl»:ed with sluggishness and fa- 
tigue, forcing you to get another 

Caffeine is strange because it 
makes you feel like you have 
moe energy when you really 
d(Hi't. Research shows that to 
get a real surge of energy 
after hours of sitting at a desk 
or computer, simply get xxp 
and move around. One study 
revealed that office onploy- 
ees who periodically left their 
desks for a bit of exercise, 
rather than downing coffee 
and candy, were more alert 
and stress-free. It's good to 
get in a pattern of taking a 
five-minute (or more) break 

every half hour. Get up tod walk 
around the d(»m, library or wher- 
ever you are. If you can get 
outside, do it-take a walk around 
campus, go visit another belea- 
guered friend, or walk around 

your buikiing. If you don't feel 
like leaving, at least stand up, jump 
around, swing your arms and do 
some knee bends or toe touches. 
Some schools have traditions in 
taking study breaks. At one scIhmI 

m Boston, the entire campus has 
a 10- minute saeaming period at 
exactly 1 1 o'clock every night 
during finals. People across cam- 
pus hang out their windows or 
jump around and scream. It might 
be bizarre, but it's practical. It 
provides a boost of energy waA 
is excellent fw stress relief. 

If everything else fails, you 
might need a jolt of caffeine. Just 
make sure you pace yourself. 

Don't drink too much at once, and 
don't drink it too often. Caffeine 
levels vary considerably between 
products and even between 
means of preparation. For ex- 
amfde, how a pot of coffee is 

brewed, the amount of instant 
coffee used or the amount of time 
tea soaks all a£fect caffeine lev- 
els. The chart shows the amount 
(^ caffeine in different products. 

Stayir^ up all night deprives 
the body of natural r»t, so you 
must also consider how much 
time you will have to recuperitte 
aftc the exams. If other press- 
ing tasks prevent you from 
catching up m IcMt sleep, 
effective study will be nearly 
unpossible-you need time to 
aash after an all-nighter. 

To maximize your study time 
and stay alert all night, remem- 
ber to pace yourself, eat small, 
nutritious meals throughout the 
ni^t, take lots of breaks and use 
caffeine only as a last-ditch ef- 
fort. Also, remember that a test 
is only a test, so don't get too 
stn^sed. Good luck!

but not until fairiy recently has there been any scientific explanation of why it works. 
Apparently the amino acids coitained in milk send signals to die brain that release a 
mild tranquilizing substance.

can avoid this problem by drinking a full glass of water when you swallow a pill,

CLR— Further Views 

By Roy A. Wenkold, M.D. 

In the past two issues of Ram 
Pages, our Chairman, Olenn 
George, sid our Columnist, Mary 
Lou Wagner, have presented 
aonwnts of what CXK is. In this 
issue I'd like to add some further 
views about the i^ninnenon that 
is occurring on Delaware Valley's 

In just six years the CLR has 
gme from 3 courses and 30 some 
students to 14 courses and ap- 
proximately 200 active students, 
with another 200onthe rolls, tem- 
poanXy inactive. 

I came on the scene about mid- 
way of that explosion of interest 
when the need arose in my life for 
nn^hing of substanix to fill a 
need in my retirement schedule. 
My intent was to be one of the 
interested studoits, but after a 
caofkt of years the bug to be a 
teacher bit me. I say teadier with 
tongue in cheek because in real- 
ity I consider myself merely a 
leader and coordinator. The 
teaching is done by each and 
every person in the World Civi- 
lization citts. 

When Ed Anderson initiated 
the CLR ptogjnm he stipulated 
that it shmild have a peer discus- 
sion and education format— much 
like what we called a bull sessim 
when 1 was in college. (Do you 
undergraduates still have them?) 
Unlike those bull sessions our 
classes do not ultimately lead to 
the (me subj«;t that our under- 
graduate sessi(ms always did. I 
hardly think I must mention what 
that subject was. CLR classes pro- 
duce a i^ofound outpouring of 
ideas and exchuiges; everyone 

The other tenent that Mr, Ander- 
son was fond of is that each day 
we learn one new item of knowl- 
edge. That might be a word, an 
idea, or an in- depth study of some 
nibject. The number of direc- 
tions fOT knowledge is endless. 

All of diis leads to a feeling of 
family and belonging among the 
tttendees. With thatfeeling comes 
a better frame <rf mind and with 
the improved mental attitude 
tfiere seems to be an improve- 
ment in all the aches and ills we 
dder people are afflicted with.

The Biology Club's annual 
whale watch on Apil 1 • 1 2th to 
Provincetown. Mass., was a suc- 
cess this year. Although the 
weather was cold and rainy, we 
y/ett able to see several Finback 
whales and a couple of Hump- 
back whales (called Humpback 
because they hump their backs 
when surfacing for air). Both of 
these species are baleen whales 
(whales which acquire their nour- 
idiment by filtering the food-of 
ten small shrimp and fish • through 
the baleen plates in the upper 
portion of their mouths). Those 
who went were able to catch a 
fairly close look at the Humpback 
whales and also of several Atlan- 
tic White-Sided Dolphins, which 
tend to be found near finback 
whales. The ddf^ins were amus- 
ing in the way they "rode" the 
waves from the boat aixl also 
because they came very close to 
the boat, therefore gaving the 
watchers a front seat view. ITie 

annual whale watch is an extraor- 
dinary experience in that it gave 
us a chance to see whales in their 
natural habitat instead of tanks 
like those at Sea World. In addi- 
tion, the trip was educational be- 
cause members of the Center for 
Coastal Studies explained some 
interesting facts about these 
whales and how the Coastal Stud- 
ies research is benefitting the 
whales and oth^ marine mam- 
mals survival. The (Tenter for 
Coastal Studies goes out on ev- 
ery watch to count and deter- 
mine what species are seen, if 
any have returned from previ- 
ous years (Humpbacks are iden- 
tifiable by the unique markings 

OR tlw underside of their flukes) 
and if the whales are reproduc- 
ing. The female whales (cows) 
will bring their ycmng (calfs) up 
from the southern wanner water 
to feed. The Humpbacks migrate 
in the winter down to die warmer 
wat^ to refvoduce then migrate 
back up to cooler waters to feed 
(more abundance of food in the 
cooler waters). Because the 
whale watches are so popular, 
exciting and educational, the Bi- 
ology Club invites those who 
could not participate this year to 
attend next year along with the 
"regulars'* that attend every year. 
It's an experience you won't ever

Dear Aggie, 

I'm confused, my brother doesn't live at home anymore and when 
he comes back for visits he is always causing trouble. He picks 
arguments with me and is c(Hisiantly putting me down. That doe; not 
bother me as much as the fact that my parents don't tell him what he is 
doing wrong. I feel as if everyone is against me. 


Not Welcome at Home 

Dear Not Welcome at Home, 

This sounds like a {n-oblem that should be discussed at home. You 
need to sit down with your parents and explain to them how you feel. 
Then yoa need to talk with your brother. Maybe he needs to be 
reminded that you are no longer a child and wish to be treated as an 
adult. Perhaps this will ease your situation and help you feel more 
welcome at home.

DYC History 


By Tina Dtmenczuk 


The initial purpose of Rabbi 
Joseph Krauskopf founding this 
institution was to instruct Jewish 
boys in the different branches of 
agriculture and teach them the 
theory and practice of farming 
for a living. Mr. Krauskopf be- 
lieved this would help the Jew- 
ish situation and help their eco- 
nomic and social future. 

Mr. Jacob Tuck of Philadel- 
phia was a close friend of Kraus- 
kopf. He was always interested 
in the welfare of Jewish immi- 
grants ahd talked to Krauskopf 
about their social [»t>blem. Mr. 
Tudc oftCT advised the Rat^i to 
"Make farmers out of tbem! " This 
stuck in his mind and after TiK:k's 
death in 1894 led him abroad to 
investigate that same year. 

Krauskopf took this idea and 
went to study the Jews in Rus- 
sia. There he met Count Leo 
Tolstoi, who had made numer- 
ous demands for Jewish social 
reforms. Together they visited 
the Jewish Agricultural School 
at Odessa which Tolstoi 
founded. Tolstoi showed 
Krauskopf how the boys were 
learning to work the land, but were 
1 imited by the government He then 
suggested to Krauskopf that he 
should try to pull thousands of 
youngpeople out of the cities, onto 
fertile land, and guide them so they 
could make a name for the Jewish 
people in his country. 

With Tolstoi's and Tuck's inspir- 
ing words, Krauskopf returned to 
his country, bought a 1 OO-Jwre farm 
and started the National Farm 
School. He then reconsidered his 
original idea to look out for the 

Th« first building of the National 
Farm School - Pioneer Hall 

welfare of just his people and 
decide to render this service 
to non-Jewish students as well 
as Jewish students. He realized 
that thousands of people were 
leaving their farms to live in the 
alluring urban towns and cities 
to become industrial workers. 
He knew then that his country 
was in trouble and agriculture 
could offer a way, if scientifi- 
cally carried on, to attract pec^le

As President and Vice President of Stu(tent Government we would 
like to welcome all new and returning students to Delaware Valley 
College. We would like to familiarize you with stuctent government and 
other campus programs as well as let you know we are making strides and 
bounds toward improving campus life. 

To begin with, we would like you to understand what Student 
Government is all about and realize that it's here for you. It's a source 
for you to voice your concerns and/or ideas to the administration and 
faculty on campus. Through the Student Government you will have the 
power to greatly influence how the next four years of your life will be 
affected. You have the option; whether others pave the path for your 
college years or wtether you Mutually become instrumental; in making 

decisions that will affect the rest of your life. If you 
become involved with Student Government as an 
officer, a representative or just by communicating 
your ideas and/or concerns, you will make a 

INVOLVEMENT! There it is in black and 
white, the key word to having a successful and a 
meaningful college experience. Even if Student 
Government is not for you, there are numerous 
other activities or organizaticms which will gready 
influence your college future, providing you 
become involved. Oie example is the Student 
Activities Committee (SAC) which is a student 
committee that chooses what activities, perfwm- 
ers, or events will be oa campus each year. Last 
year we had BOBCAT GOLDTHWAfT as a 
main performer and those involved with SAC had 
the opportunity to meet him in person. 

Another major, and possibly the most visible 
way to take an active part in your College expe- 
rience, is through our "rww and improved" cam- 
pus newspaper f- Ram Pages". The present

Spotlight On... 


By Cindy MUziva 

A A E Editor 

Jkma Jarrett is fondly referred 
to as the "bad guy" on campus. 
This is mainly because he is in 
command of student discipline. 
However, those of us who have 
taken the Ume to get to know Dean 
Jarrett on a more personal basis 
have found him to be a concerned 
advisor, mentor, and, most impor- 
tantly, a friend. He is a man who 
wants and looks for oj^ortunities 
to interact with students. Dean 
Jarrett likes to know his students 
on an individual basis. Many are 
not able to pass by the Dean with- 

out him knowing their name aiui 
asking how tlMy are. As an advisor 
to StiKlent Government, Dean Jar^ 
rett focuses on the interaction be- 
tween our government and the cam- 
pus conmunity. He believes that 
the interaction among all college 
committees and clubs plays an intri- 
cate role in student relations. It is in 
his ability to care and focus on stu- 
dent life whffl-e the respected na- 
ture of Dean Jarrett changes from 
his "bad guy" front to a most admi- 
rable man.

You will be pleased that we have made arrangemoits with 
HarleysvilleNati(Hial Bank to install a cash access machine in the Student 
Center. Students who have an account with Harleysville will be able 
to access cash at no charge. Students with MAC cards throu^ other 
banks will be charged the typical small fee for using a MAC machine. 
Harleysville Bank will be visiting campus in September to offer students 
the opportunity to (^n an account with them. As an extra, service, 
students with Harleysville accounts will also be able to make deposits 
through the DVC Accounting Office. 

In Seotember vou will see some new faces on campus. We welcome 
Mr. Justin Lawhead as the new Coordinator of Student Activities. Mr. 
Lawhead, who comes from the Student Life Office at the University 
of Pittsburgh, has already been busy planning activities for the fall. 
Ms. Tanya Letoumeau, f(nmerly of the University of Missouri, has 
joined us as the new Director of Career Planning and Placement in July. 

General campus clean-up/fix-up involves residence halls, new paving 
of the paricing lot, campus paths and roads, and srane truly impressive 
landscape work. (You will notice plant and tree i(kntification plaques 
aj^aring all over campus). 

WhUe we continue to plan for your return to campus in the 
fall, we hope your summer is rewarding and refreshing!

A Brief History 

By Bruce Eaton 

Associate Editor 

The land oa whidi Doylestown is located was purchased by 
Jeremiah Langhome on Felwiiary 1 5, 1724 fnwn the Free Society of 
Traders of London. Lan^ome's 2,000-acre purchase increased his 
total land holdings to 5,200 acres in tt^ Doylestown area. Jeremiah 
Langhome's 5,200 acres cost $5,740 in 1724. 
Ruiming through this rural ami densely wooded land,Qnly 26 miles 
from Philadelf^a ,was one "great road". This road ran north and 
south from Willow Grove, then known aji"Round Meadow", to 
Horsham. This road was extended through Langhome's land in 
1723. The road was named Dyer's Road. Dyer's Road is presem-day 
Main Sl , Doylestown(see map on pg.6) . The establishmoit of Dyer's 
Road was the primary catalyst to the f cunding and growth of modem- 
day Doylestown.In a time when travel was slow and treacherous and 
no significant waterway existed in Ae area, it was this "great road" 
that crameded the outlying areas, and it was on this road that 
Doylestown began. ( Continued Page 3) 

Multi Media Computer 
Makes the Del Val Connection 

By Tim Vogt 


During the summer & going 
into the fall sanesta* of '92 
DVC has made a rather sig- 
nificant tedmological jorap. 
The introduction of the audio/ 
visual Multimedia Platform 
opens the door for future 
projects in teaching. 
This applies not only 
to computer courses 
but other courses as 
well. For example, 
using multimedia in a 
music course would 

allow the teacher to play san^les of a 
song while the computer displays the 
artist and historical fads about their 
background. This equipment will 
evoitually be used to make tutorials 
for avariety of courses. Some courses 
that have hem mentioned to test mul- 
timedia m are Intro, to Computers, 
Chemistry, Music and ^ Arts.

Designers, Contractors and Nurserymen 

staff has done a remarkable job turning our school paper 
into the best paper this campus has ever seen. It's a first 
class publication that can hold its own against any compa- 
rable college. The Ram Pag^ is one area which has 
bounded forward. They have upgraded their con^niter 
system as well as otha necessary equipment It has 
become more and more influential with each issue and we 
believe it will be gomg much fur- 

There are many o^ber ways to 
become involved and be heard. 
The new campus radio station, 
WDVC, for instance, which has 
alsotakoi strides of its own, is cur- 
rently looking f(n- D J.'s, as well as 
twenty-some active clubs not to 
mention Del Val's sportsproffsms. 
College is meaningless unless 
YOU become involved in the i»-o- 
gramming that directly affects you. 
We want campus life at DVC to 
keep improvmg, but that can only 
be done if you dioose to make the 
difference. By becoming involved, 
you can make your college expe- 
rieiK^e four of the best years of 
your life as well as achieve practi- 
cal experience for your future. 

We're proud to be studoits of 
Delaware Valley College and we 
hope to pass some of this pride on

Doylestown History 

( Continued from Page 2 ) 

A second road was established in 
1730. This road crossed Dyer's 
Road on Jeremiah Langhome's 
land, forming the crossroads of 
present -day Main St. with East and 
West State Streets. During this civi- 
lizing process, Langhome sold 
some of his acreage to Joseph Kirk- 
bridge in 1729,including the cross- 
roads acreage. Kirkbridge, in turn, 
sold acreage to Edward Doyle. 
Edward's grandson, William 
Doyle, received the crossroads 
bequest and built the Doyle Tav- 
ern at his crossroads. Doyle was 
granted a license and opened for 
business in 1745. A village evolved 
around the Doyle Tavern and 
shortly after the American Revo- 
lution the village became known 
as Doylestown. Doylestown grew 
and became the County Seat in 
1813. State and local business en- 
couraged further growth. Doyles- 
town continues to support a thriv- 
ing professional community, cen- 
tered around the County Court- 

Seeds to 

By Bruce Eaton 

Associate Editor 

Back in the beginning of April, 
President Bush signed a bill to give 
the Russian Federation about $12 
billion in aid for economic stabili- 
zation and recovery. It was a huge 
aid package to an economy on the 
brink of collapse. Most tax payers 
wondered how much of that money 
actually got through national bu- 
reaucracy and into the hands of the 
citizens it was meant to help. 

Following another severe Rus- 
sian winter, with huge food short- 
ages and long lines, the people of 
the Federation needed a break.

On Campus!

The Business Club purchased 
a satellite dish last sonester through 
its treasury and donations. Area 
companies like Jerrold Communi- 
cations of Upper Moreland Town- 
ship and the Peerless Satellite Net- 
work of Colmar made substantial 
donations of equipment and man- 
power to bring this valuable asset 
to the college. 

The goal of this program, as ex- 
plained by Gerald Handler, is to 
televise educational seminars and 
entertainment programs on cam- 
pus in the All Purpose Room (APR). 
By advertising various seminars, 
Peter Drucker's Management 
Conference and Tom Peter's Ex- 
cellence Seminar, to the general 
public, the Business Club hopes to 
convey valuable information to 
local businesses and the commu- 

The Russian citizens were not get- 
ting the practical help they needed 
to survive. 

Dr. John Avery, chairman of 
DVC's Agribusiness Department, 
and Mr. James Cantrill of Educa- 
tion Advisory Services Inst., 
launched a project back in April to 
help the Russian Citizens feed 
themselves. It was called Project 
Friendship Gardens. They sup- 
plied Russian citizens with veg- 
etable seed kits to grow their own 

The first shipment of 1,350 seeds 
was sent on April 4th. The second 
shipment was sent to Volgograd on 
April 10th, and 9,000more Friend- 
ship Gardens were sent after Eas- 
ter, in time for the planting season. 
The Friendship Gardens Project 
has the support of the Congres- 
sional Select Committee on Hun- 
ger, led by U.S. Rep. Peter Kost- 

A-Day '92 

DVC's Annual Open House and Exhibition Day... 

The main event of dx annual program of 
student activities at Delaware Valley College 
is the opoi house and exhibition called A- 
Day. This event, staged each year over the 
last weekend in April, provides students with 
an (^portunity to showcase their skills and 
their programs. 

A-Day is the product of months of prepara- 
tion under the leadership of a representative 
student committee encouraged and advised 
by a faculty and staff committee. 

A-Day features livestock exhibitions and 
judging contests, and extensive floral (tesign 

exhibition, exhibits produced by various majors and student organizations, craitests of skill, tons of food, and 
much more in a country fair atmosphere that brings thousands of visitOTS to the campus each Spring.

Career Day 

Don't miss the 

Career Day is the largest re- 
cruiting day at DVC. There are 
80-90 companies on campus in 
search of students who are look- 
ing for job opportunities and who 
have talents to offer their firms. 

Considering the shape of the 
economy, this is a chance for you 
to bound ahead of other job appli- 
cants upon graduation. Career 
Day will allow you to make con- 
tacts that your competition will 
never have. 

Freshman through seniors 
should attend this event. Seniors 
will find out about career opportu- 
nities following graduation. Un- 
derclass students may make con- 
tacts and will gain the experience 
of talking to prospective employ- 

Career Day is usually held at 
the end of February in the APR.

to live heahhy and financially se- 
cure lives. 

In the beginning, land equipnmit 
and buildings were limited. Kraus- 
kopf purchased the 100-acre farm 
along with the homestead house, a 
spring house, which was remod- 
eled for the first dairy, and a bam, 
for $10,000. After he raised a sec- 
ond $10,000, he had Pioneer Hall 
buih. This building contamed the 
classrooms, library, dining ro(Hn. 
Idtdwn, laundry room, gymnasium, 
dormitories, office, and quarters 
for the Dean. He employed a fac- 
ulty of two and enrolled 10 stu- 
dents, graduatii^ eight as the first 
class. The whole school, the farm, 
buildings, furniture, andfarm equip- 

ment totaled $30,000 in cost. It was 
founded on April 10, 1896 and dedi- 
cated on June 20, 1897. 

The National Farm School pro- 
vided a three year i»-(^ram com- 
bining acadmiics and work expe- 
rioice which continued through 
World War U. bi 1945, the sdiool 
became the National Faim School 
and Junior College and the aca- 
demic program was reorganized 
and strengthened. As Uie aj^lied 
sciences became recognized it was 
necessary to expand further. In 
1948 the program was enlarged to 
a senior college , approved by the 
StateCouncil of Education, and the 
name was changed to the National 
Agricultural Cdlege. 

James Woik , a 1 91 3 graduate of 
The National Farm school, lead the 
growth after W.WJI. He added 
new programs in the Food Indus- 


try, (1951), Biology A Chemistry 
(1958), and Businas. The name 
was also changed again to Dela- 
ware Valley College of Science 
and Agriculture in 1960. Recently 
many new majors have been added 
including Agribusiiwss ( 1 983) and 
Computer Information Systems 
Management(1984).In 1987atwo- 
year Associate of Science degree 
in Equine Science and a two-year 
Associate of science degree in Su- 
pervision, Admini^ation & Man-

As president of the Doyles- 
town Business and Community 
Alliance, I wmild Uke to wel- 
come all of you to Doylestown 
and give you some background 
on DBCA. 

The Alliance began on July 
16, 1984 unkr the presidency 
of Ariene Stachel, with the fol- 
lowing stated objective: "to 
stimulate, in the eyes of the 
public a positive appreciation 
for Doylestown; educate the 
public as to the benefits and merged with the Doylestown 
enjoyment derived from using Business and Community As- 

Summrr 1992 


The Center for Learning in Re- 
lirancnt (CLR) has been on DVCs 
campus for six years. CLR is gov- 
erned by a Board of Directws 
chosen by the member^ip. The 
purpose of CLR is to provide an 
opportunity for HMn and women 55 
years of tgc or okler to join to- 
gether in an academk atmosphere 
and share in expanding their 
knowledge. They select their own 
teachers whidi are all volimteers 
and are selected by the student 
body. A course leader is a fee- 
paying member who shares his or 
her knowledge with the class. 
They donate most of the member- 
ship fee to the college. A comply 
listing of the current courses are 
posted on dieir bulletin board on 
the seccmd floor of the student 
ctvter during each semester.

UFO Sighted Over 
Water Tower? 

the officers, there were none to 
be found. The next step, finding 
the persons who reported the 
sightings, proved much easier. 
The students who saw the UFO 
divulged their stories but only 
under the condition of anonym- 

They reported the craft hover- 
ing above the tower as being neon 
green and yellow in color and 
shaped like a cow's udder on the 
bottom. The students reported 
hearing a light humming sound as 
it rose from the water tower. One 
student had a chance to take a 
Water tow«r twhind Mandall HaH Picture before it was U-ansformed 

into a Budweiser can and disap- 
What an assignment! I was asked 

to investigate a reported UFO 
sighting over Mandell Hall Water 
Tower, and against my better 
judgement, took the seemingly ri- 
diculous case. 

The reported sightings were 
called into Security in the early 
morning hours of November 21, 
the night of the full moon. Security 
played them off as prank calls, but 
when their new Caprice started to 
levitate, they didn't take it so lightly. 
When it came time to interview 

pears into the moonlit sky. 

In all honesty, this reporter was a 
little skeptical upon receiving and 
investigating this assignment. But I 
set out to find what 1 could, or rather 

The first place 1 started was Lasker 
Hall . I thought that 1 could put an end 
to these silly sightings by getting 
some logical input from the "Top 
Dogs." On what would normally be 
a busy Monday morning at Lasker. 
1 expected to find many people who 
would make sense out of this event. 

To no avail, the building was de- 
serted and all its occupants had 
mysteriously disappeared. Kind 
of funny, 1 thought. 

My next mission was to contact 
the campus Star Trek Club for 
their expertise advise. Based on 
the color and shape of the craft, 
they concluded that the ship came 
from the udderly distant planet of 
Bovine, located in the solar sys- 
tem of Hopps & Barley, 
My final frontier was to go where 
no student had gone before. 1 
dared to approach the new ellip- 
tically shaped dorm in front of 
Work Hall where I caught up with 
someone coming out. It did not 
appear to be a typical DVC stu- 
dent. My assumption was that he 
must have just had dinner in the 
Dining Hall because he looked 
kind of green and sick. I couldn't 
understand a word that he said as. 
he turned around and ran back 
inside, obviously startled by my 

I decided to let it go and report 
my findings and ask you, our loyal 
readers, to remember the night of 
the full moon, November 21. If 
you saw anything out of the ordi- 
nary that night or any other night, 
report it to the Ram Pages Bureau 
of Strange and Unusual Events at 
Box #917.
