DEUWARE VALLEY COLLEGE OF SCIENCE AND AGRICULTURE 



Octob«r, 1964 



255Frosh Undergo Traditional Customs 




Freshman Customs have long been a tradition at Delaware Valley College, Their 
purpose is to acquaint the freshmen with the rules and regulations of the college and 
to promote school spirit. In the process, freshmen learn the names of their fellow 
classmates along with a better knowledge of the history and traditions of the college. 
All this results in a uniting of the members of the freshman class. 

It is the job of the sophomore class to administer Freshman Customs. Having 
gone through Customs themselves during their freshman year, they are the best 
prepared class to administer Customs. It is the job of each and every sophomore to 
help the freshmen in their adjustment .

to college life by taking part in Customs, 
by asking questions, and by setting a 
good example. 

The ordeals of walking through Ginkgo 
Lane, jumping on Ginkgo berries, Hght- 
ing the cigarettes of upperclassmen, and 

yelling "Beat , Sir!" brings 

about a unity in the freshman class. 
There is a common result. Freshmen be- 
gin to talk to each other. They organize 
themselves as a class, and the collegiate 
chque that is found in many colleges is 
dissolved. They aren't standing as indi- 
viduals; they stand together as a class — 
giving the sophomores something to think 
about. 

Customs, being a human institution, 
has its faults. Power sometimes falls into 
the hands of immature persons. They 
use this unmerited power for their self- 
esteem and pseudo-ego. It is these sopho- 
mores whom the freshmen dislike. These 
individuals very often defeat the purpose 
of Customs. 

The freshmen class also has its share 
of individuals who cause Customs to 
run afoul of proper acceptance. They 



too long, too severe, and/or inconsistent 
that trouble arises. This is when Customs 
become a liability instead of an asset 

Each year Customs change slightly to 
improve their effect. This year the sopho- 
mores made a big improvement by re- 
quiring that work cards be handed in 
for work duty. This prevents work duty 
for unjust reasons, and it lets each part> 
involved know the situation. 

In order to alleviate some of the ten- 
sions and personal dislikes that Customs 
cause. Customs should extend only two 
weeks with a possible three weeks if the 
freshmen lose the rope-puU. Any enforce- 
ment after this only buiki> unnecessary 
problems. 

The freshmen must realize that Cus- 
toms are intended to provide a useful 
experience to get them started on their 
college hfe. Next year as sophomores 
they will be administering Customs, and 
it will be their responsibility to see that 
they go smoothly and achieve good 
results.

importance and good of Customs, there 
is much benefit. It is when Customs are 



A Blueprint for DVC Students 

The following remarks were made by Morris H. Goldman, Chairman of the 
Board of Trustees at the first fall meeting of the faculty. 

Dr. Work, Ladies and Gentlemen of Delaware Valley College: 

It is always with a feeling of pride and pleasure that I attend these gatherings 
of the Delaware Valley College family. Each year as our student body has expanded, 
so has our fatuity expanded. I must say that both the student body and the faculty 
are better looking than ever. 

Most of you were at our Foimder's Day Convocation, at which our good friend 
Dean ToUes made the principal address. He said that it was the duty of the college 
to prepare our students for the earning of a livelihood, and in order to accomplish 
this it is necessary that we impart to our students knowledge of facts and techniques. 

Most of all he impressed upon us that the responsibiUty of a college is to make the 
students aware of their potential and to instill in them the reaUzation of the joy of 
learning. 

He said that teachers must themselves be excited about learning for its own sake 
and should create contagious enthusiasm which inspires students. 

As Chairman of the Board of Trustees, I can tell you that it is the policy of the 
college administration to carry out these basic fundamental aims. Beyond that, 
however, it is our policy to help every student, who is a worthwhile person who shows 
the desire and really tries, attain these goals. 

When necessary, in cases where such a student does not produce the desired 
results, extra effort should be exerted by the faculty to help him accomplish these 
aims. This is what we see as part of the public service for which our institution 
exists and was created. 

We are interested in the individual person as distinguished from statistics. We are 
interested in the record of the individual rather than the scholastic record of the 
college. In other words ask not what our students can do for the college, but what 
the college can do for our students. 

I am certain that we will work together to achieve these aims, and I would not 
look for a better body of men and women than we have in tite faculty of Delaware 
Valley College. 



A grant-in-aid, scholastic or athletic, 
is an offer of a college or university to 
help an individual in whom it has confi- 
dence and must be considered an integral 
part of college life. 

Many people say that we must raise 
the standards of a college scholastically 
before we raise them athletically. What 
we do not realize is that both are of 
equal importance and both must work 
hand in hand. 

The attention brought to our school by 
our athletic teams attracts a wider range 
of students, enabUng the school to be 
more selective in its admissions. 

Young men who have grants-in-aid 
must meet academic standards to play 
varsity athletics. Men with wc&detaic 
scholarships must maintain high aca- 
demic averages. 

We must once again realize that we 
are individuals, and our opinions differ 
at times. We have been gifted with 
different God-given abilities; one man 
may possess more gray matter and an- 
other more muscle, but both work for 
the college or university and the im- 
provement of the individual. 

May we never lose sight of what the 
college way of life tries to teach us: 
when, and if, we graduate, we will be- 
UMue associated with many people of 
different and varied abilities, whether we 
hke it or not. We should learn this lesson 
now when it is relatively easy and not 
later when we may be sc^ry.

A L»tt»r From an Alumnus 

Dear Administration, Faculty, and Student Body, 

Greetings from South Korea! I'm sure everybody is very busy with the 
beginning of another college year at DVC. I extend "My Sincerest Best 
Wishes" to the Administration, Faculty, and Student Body for a very enjoyable, 
prosperous, and rewarding college year. 

I have seen quite a large area of Korea but everywhere I go it looks much 
the same. Over 70% of the land area is mountain or forest land. Many villages 
are spotted throughout the hills and valleys. The many small houses are 
usually made of earth block, covered with thatched roofs, and crowded with 
poor families. About 55% of the total population in this country are farm 
people and the average farm household is 6.32 people. There is only an 
average of 411 pyong (about 1/3 acre) of cultivated land per farm person. The 
population density per square mile in the Repubhc of Korea is 412 persons 
as compared to 32 in the United States. This should help us to understand 
the present situation of South Korea. 

I have lived with four host famiUes and learned to appreciate the many 
hardships of these poor people. They don't have the many facilities and 
pleasures of the "Lucky Americans". I have had the opportunity to visit many 
rural areas. These people have seen very few Americans if any, so they gather 
around, follow, and stare at me. Through these visits and everyday living, it 
is very evident that poor sanitation is the major problem. Much water is 
impure, many people don't keep their bodies clean and as a result it is quite 
obvious to notice many sore spots on their bodies, especially evident on small 
children as they run around nude. Also, the lavatory facilities are very poor 
which is true in the many public buildings. 

I have found the proverbs "seeing is beUeving" and "experience is the 
best teacher" to be very true. Through sharing their way of life I have 
gotten a very true picture of how the Korean people really live. This experience 
made me fully realize that truer words were never spoken, when said, "there 
is no place Uke home". Sincerely yours, 

Darvin Boyd '64 



Professor Adelson Speaks on Ecology 

Professor L .M, Adelson, Chairman of 
the Biology Department at Delaware 
Valley College, was the principal speaker 
at a regional meeting of the Pennsylvania 
Forestry Association held at the Bow- 
man's Hill Wildflower Preserve on Oc- 
tober 3. Mrs. Adrian Franklin, member of 
the Washington Crossing Park Commis- 
sion, welcomed members of the asso- 
ciation and their guests. Mr. Wilson 
Heinitsh of the executive committee of 
the Preserve, introduced Professor Adel- 
son whose illustrated talk dealt with the 
relationship of plants and animals to the 
soil, climate, and other factors of their 
environment, the branch of science 
known as "ecology". 

Professor Adelson's presence at the 
preserve and the subject of his talk were 



more than academic. Some years ago, 
the Wildflower Preserve dedicated a por- 
tion of the preserve, a steep section of 
land lying principally between Pidcock 
Creek and the tower on Bowman's Hill, 
to the members of the Forestry Associa- 
tion who, since 1876, have worked to 
conserve "Penn's Woods". A major trail 
through what is now known as the For- 
esters' Forest has been named the 
Ecology Trail, in recognition of the fact 
that scientific handling of forests for 
human use must rest on a thorough un- 
derstanding of ecology. 

Professor Adelson has been invited to 
make a systematic, continuing observa- 
tion of the gradual changes taking place 
in this Foresters' Forest which will be 
useful to the Preserve and the surround-

THE FURROW 



Pag« ThrM 



SPORTS ROUNDUP 




Gary Ulrich, the Aggies Most Valuable Back for the previous two seasons, sweeps 
the end against Haverford. 



"Boots" Baughn demonstrates the origin of the "twist." Boots is the main cog in 
the Aggie ground attack. 



Millersville, 7-21 

The game against Millersville was the 
first real test of this new Aggie team 
against an experienced ball club. 

Scores are usually a poor indication of 
a ball game; what most people do not 
know is that the Aggies this day gained 
193 yards on ground, 30 yards off the 
Aggie school record. 

Two separate units were used, one on 
offense and one defense. The defensive 
unit held the teachers of Millers\ ille to 
34 yards in the first half; the second 
half was much different and the yardage 
v>ent up to 124 yards. 

As the rains came in the second half, 
the Aggies could not ring up any scores; 
the struggle to regain possession for the 
ball was the story of the rest of the 
game. 

Dick Baughn scored the only Aggie 
touchdowii with a great effort from die 
12 yard line in the first quarter. Defen- 
sive standouts were Vin Ficca a freshman 
with military background, Rock Cara- 
\ella a sophomore, Rich Richardson a 
freshman, Gary Shisler a junior, George 
Tremblay a junior, and Dick DeMott a 
junior. 

Although this ball game ended in a 
score of 21 to 7, we must say the Aggies 
showed much improvement from those 
first two days early in September. 

Moravian, 6*28 

The Aggies second ball game was 
played against a well drilled, liard-nosed 
group of men from Bethlehem, Pennsyl- 
vania. Moravian, who had beaten Lafay- 
ette earlier in the year, brought that 
type of performance with them. 

Offense told the story in this ball game; 
ours seemed to click at times and at 
others, it did not. Again Dick Baughn 
ran hard but was hampered by a sexere- 
ly bruised right elbow. Da\e Markle, a 
sophomore and a standout tackle last 
year and tliis year, was hampered by a 
torn cartilage in his hip which affected 
the right side of our line. 

Late in tlie game, the spirit and de- 
termination of this new team began to 
show as Gary Ulrich bootlegged the ball 
around left end for the only Aggie tally. 

Again, on defense, Vin Ficca stood 
out with shocking, hard-nosed tackling 
along with John Vaneschak, a newly 
converted defensive specialist. 

Another defensive standout was 
George Trembly who is having his first 
great season as an Aggie since transfer- 
ing from I*rinceton. 

This game and the Millersville game 
brought out the shaping up of an offense 
that would tell the story of an Home- 
coming Day in the game with Haverford. 



Haverford, 14*8 

The game with Haverford along with 
the rest of our stepped up schedule this 
year, was preceded by a week of long, 
hard practice. 

Approximately 2500 fans watched the 
Aggies take the ball on the opening kick 
oft and march 66 yards for a touchdown 
in 12 plays. Aggie fans finally saw the 
true colors of this ball club and their 
new offense. 

Joseph Franchella, a freshman, took 
the ball for the first tally. 

In the following quarter, the men from 
Haverford took the ball and marched 70 
yards for their first score and converted 
a 2 point score after the touchdown 
which made the score at half time 8-7. 

The tliird quarter opened up a new 
ball game, which seemed to be a dead- 
lock in the middle of tlie field. 

The fourth quarter seemed to be a 
repeat of the third, but Haverford, deep 
in their own territory, coughed up the 
ball, which was recovered by Bruce 
Grover. 

Three plays later with about 2 minutes 
left in the ball game, Billy Mitchell, a 
sopiiomore halfback, scored on a 34 yard 
pass, a play well-planned and well-exe- 
cuted for this point in the field. Gary 
Ulrich converted to make the final score 
14-8 and a Homecoming win. 

Albright, 0-35 

We'll let Jim Hackett, sportswriter lor 
tlie Intelligencer, give you the result of 
his interview with Coach Bill Graver who 
said, "I figure every lost fumble and 
ev ery blocked kick equal to 50 yard of 
offense. On this basis we gave Albright 
450 yards in the first 17 minutes. 

"We fumbled 7 times and had two 
kicks blocked over this span. In the next 
43 minutes we outplayed one of the 
finest small college teams in the country. 
This almost wants to make you cry with 
laughter. 

"It was the greatest job our team 
turned in since I've been here. Losing 
35-0 is not exactly a great job perhaps, 
but they didn't quit — and the team didn't 
lose its hit. 

"Albright got 76 yards. That's the low- 
est rushing they had this year and don't 
forget they beat Gettysburg, winners 
over Delaware. They had their first team 
backfield in to the very end. They wanted 
more, but couldn't get it. 

"What's on the scoreboard is what 
counts, but what's in a player's heart and 
mind counts too. Our team must honestly 
believe now that they can face any small 
college team, regardless of rating, and 
give an account of themselves." 



Even though we lost the Albright 
game, the enthusiasm shown by the Ag- 
gies for this game was something to be- 
hold. 

Never before in the history of Dela- 
ware Valley College did a student body 
go to such lengths for a ball game. Signs, 
dummies, sheets suspended across cam- 
pus, all signified an aroused school spirit. 

Everyone knows that a team that is 
psychologically set-up for a ball game is 
the team to beat. Many examples can be 
quoted, from major universities (Boston 
College upsetting Syracuse) to high 
schools. 

Many people in different occupations 
have proposed explanations for this phe- 
nomena. One might take a view of the 
situation like a medical doctor, and hy- 
pothesize that this player "played over 
his head" because his adrenal glands 
secreted extra adrenalin which caused 
him to play in a superior way. 

A psychologist might venture to say 
that a person's performance is dependent 
upon his ego. Stimulate the person's ego 
toward a certain goal and his muscles 
will respond accordingly. This could be 
true. No one has ever thought of blaming 
Ned Linta for our fine cross-country 
teams. All thoughts of success are cen- 
tered around Lou Coppens and Jim 
Murphy. However, it is Ned's yelling, 
ordering and pleading that often inspires 
a runner to a better time and position 
than his previous race. 

The best view, however, may come 
from a complete stranger to D.V.C. He 
would ask, "All this enthusiasm, just for 
a ball game?" 

The Aggies would have to answer that 
this ball game was different. Normally 
there were eleven men of D.V.C. in the 
football game. Against Albright, there 
was an entire school on the football field. 



Freshmen Give Cross-Country 
A Bright Picture 

Cross-Country has been a banner sport 
for DVC since its initiation hmi years 
ago. There is ample reas(Hi lor it to 
continue. The reason is Coach Ned 
Linta's new freshman stars. The youthful 
harriers made their presence felt in the 
first meet against Cheyney nhich the 
Aggies triumphed by 11M7. 

Robert O'Brien was iImj first freshman 
to finish. He took fifth position. O'Brien 
hails from Morrisville, Pennsylvania, and 
shows promise as a "gutty' runner. 
David Brewer comes from the Pa. state 
high school champions, Northern Alle- 
gheny of Pittsburgh. Dave currently has 
leg problems which must heal before his 
talent is realized. Another promising 
freshman is Wayne Oppenheimer, a thin 
speedster from Massachusetts. These 
three harriers should form the nucleus of 
Ned Linta's teams in the future years 
with additional help from Gerry Harteis, 
Paul Kiry, Dennis Burd, and Lou 
Polito. 

At the present, the return of Jim 
Murphy has molded the Aggies into a 
feared opponent While Murphy's train- 
ing procedures niuy be questionable, his 
results are not because Jim runs on 
natural ability and sheer guts. An ex- 
ample of his fortitude was exhibited 
when he ran the last mile against Chey- 
ney in his bare feet due to the fact that 
his heel had been chewed by a nail in 
his shoe. 

Lou Coppt'iis IS still the greatest small 
college runner m the East. Sophomore 
Ira Walker is going to be a big gun in 
the future, and Jim Ginaris, another 
sophomore, is number five man. Junior 
Dave Scovell is getting into shape and 
now is the steady number four man.

was held on September 19, 1964 at 
Springfield, Massachusetts. This Exposi- 
tion IS the kick-off of the Intercollegiate 
Livestock Judging contests. 

This year there were only three schools 
represented: The University of Connecti- 
cut, Pennsylvania State University and 
Dalaware Valley College. The contest 
was won by the University of Connecti- 
cut; the Aggies finished last. 

The Aggie team consisted of John 
Albrecht, Robert Clements, William 
Croushore, Ronald Dalrymple, and Don- 
ny Day, all of the class of '65. The alter- 
nates were Charles Gembe '66, John 
Hansen '66, William Kronen *65, and 
Miles Neivert '65. 

A bright spot for the DVC team was 
the performance of Robert Clements 
who was second high individual in the 
contest. He achieved this rank by his 
second place finish in the swine division 
and his fifth place finish in the sheep 
division. Ronald Dalrymple was fifth 
high individual in the beef division. 

The team left on September 16 for 
New York. They judged at Meadow 
Lane, Moll's Hill, and Ancony and Sir 
William Farms before the contest. They 
returned on Sunday exening, September 
20th. 



Intramurals 

The first week of Intramurals is history 
and once again Animal Husbandry ap- 
ix?ars to Ik- the club to heat. Last year 
the "Beef Boys" captured their second 
straight Supremacy Award by taking 
first in FtH)tball, Volleyball. Bowling and 
Si)ftball. They are prime faxorites to Ik* 
rejH'at winners in these divisions. The 
most serious threat to their supremacy 
appears to be coming from Orn. Hort., 
with Hort.. Dairy anid F. I. l)eing c(m- 
tenders. 

A new spoTt is being planned for the 
Intramural scTue. Intramural Wrestling 
is \ery much fa\ored by the students, 
but the problem pertaining to weight 
classification must still be ironed out be- 
fore the inauguration of Intramural 
Wrestling. 

The Intramural Council warns that the 
Intramural participants must have their 
club dues paid before they are eligible to 
play intramural sports. 



Look Into It, Seniors! 

Beginning with 1964-65 academic year 
the procedure for Senior Special Prob- 
lems is as follows: 

( 1 ) A brief outline of the intended 
senior research project should be submit- 
ted to the Conmiittec on Research by the 
student through the respective Depart- 
ment Chairman not later than Oct. 30. 

(2) A detailed outline of the project 
should be submitted to the Committee in 
the same manner not later than February 
20, for the Spring Semester. 

( 3 ) All project outlines should be type- 
written. 

(4) No project will be accepted after 
the dates mentioned above. 

(5) After the completion of the re- 
search one copy of the final report should 
be submitted to the Committee by the 
Department Chairman. No credit will 
be given for the Senior Special Problems 
course until this requirement is com- 
plied with. 

( 6 ) All research papers recei\ ed by the 
Committee will be turned over to the 
Library for future use by students. 

If you have any questions, see Dr. 
Prundeanu, Chairman Research Com- 
mittee. 



Freshmen Meet Faculty 

On September 30. 1964, the class of 
1968 officially met the members of the 
faculty. During the assembly, held in 
the Neumann Gymnasium the freshmen 
heard Dr, Peter Click, chairman of the 
Dept. of General Studies, speak about 
the wide \ariety of graduate opportun- 
ities and the important role of general 
studies in securing these positions. 

Dr. George E. Turner, Dean of the 
College and Chairman of the Dept. of 
Food Industry, introduced the remain- 
ing members of the faculty after Dr. 
Click introduced the faculty of the Di%'is- 
ion of General Studies. 

Before Dr. Meyer, Dean of Students, 
closed the Assembly, a period of silence 
was observed in memory of Professor 
Henry Schmeider who had been a mem- 
ber of the faculty since the early 1920's 
and who passed away last June.

Short Notes 

William L. Knmcn. *65, chairman of 
tin? annual "A" Day Cimunittee, repre- 
sented the college on the Bill Bennett 
Show, WCAU-TV, on Monday, Septem- 
l)er 28. The discussion centered on ani- 
mal shows and judging, and how they 
help to promote the breeding of animals 
with the most desirable characteristics. 
Future shows, on the last Monday of 
each month from 7:15 to 7:30 a.m., will 
feature students and faculty members 
from other departments. 

The Department of Public Instruction 
of the Commonwealth, in cooperation 
with the Evening Division of Etelaware 
Valley College, is offering a course in 
Arson Detection in the College's Allman 
Hall at 7:30 p.m. every Tuesday till 
December eighth. Bucks County Fire 
Marshall Fred K. Hibbs has been in 
charge of Admissions. Enrollment is lim- 
ited to fire chiefs, first assistants and 
marshalls. The curriculum has been de- 
veloped by the Pennsylvania State Police 
who are providing instructors from their 
ranks to cover each special area. Other 
instructors will come from legal, under- 
writing, and other fields having a direct 
interest in the consequences of fires. 



CLUB NEWS 

AGRONOMY 
The Agronomy club, under the lead- 
ership of Joe Dunn, has laid plans for 
the Fall semester. The club tra\eled to 
Belts\ille, Maryland on October 21st 
and visited the U. S. D. A. experimental 
station. In the near future, the club plans 
to sell subscriptions for the magazine 
"Crops and Soils"; the magazine will 
cost $3.00 per year. This year, as years 
previous, the club intends to be active 
in the intramural sports system. The 
Agronomy club would like to invite all 
freshmen and upperclassmen interested 
in our phase of agriculture to join our 
club and share with us the club's many 
worthwhile events. 

POULTRY CLUB 

The Poultry club of D. V. C. reor- 
ganized and if approved by Student 
Government is planning various field 
trips and activities. The club is planning 
an active year and hoping to provide 
many new experiences for its members. 
The officers of the club will be: 

President — Richard Lichtenwalncr 

Vice-President — Henry McCarter 

Secretary — John Kimmett 

Treasurer — Paul Heller 

A-Day — Steve Fisher 



Future of DVC RR Station 

Unknown to many DVC students, the 
Farm School Station may be abandoned 
by the Reading Railroad. The Reading 
company is in financial troubles and 
wants to discontinue its commuter lines. 
There are also political overtones present 



in that one huge, metropolitan commuter 
service has been proposed to combine 
services and install a system similar to 
city bus companies. 

The pros and cons were considered 
at a hearing on October 22 at the Bucks 
County Court House, Doylestown.

SCIENCE BUILDING IS GO!! 




Mandell Science Building 



D.V.C. ENTERS INTERCOLLEGIATE COUNCIL 



D. Gural. '65 

The Intercollegiate Council of the 
greater Philadelpnia area held its first 
formal meeting Sunday, March 7, 1965. 
E)ennis Gural, James Harteis of the Stu- 
dent Government, and student Michael 
Mikulaninec attended the meeting. The 
organization is composed of Student Gov- 
ernment representatives from Philadelphia 
area Colleges and Universities. I.C.'s main 
function is to obtain a closer working rela- 
tionship between the Philadelphia area 
schools on such points as: intercollegiate 
activities, school problems, student gov- 
ernment-administration relationship, and 
social events. 

The organization was created when 
Johnson Collins, St. Joseph's Student 
Govenunent president, felt an increasing 
need for intercollegiate relationships on 
a governmental and social level. The or- 
ganization already has many members in 
both the college and university level. 
Member schools include St. Joseph's, La 
Salle, Manor, Chestnut Hill, Gwynedd 
Mercy, ViUanova, Rosemont, Cabrini, 
Holy Funily, Drexel, and Harcum. At 



l.ist Tuesday's meeting, the Student Gov- 
ernment of D.V.C. voted unanimously to 
join the organization. 

As it is presently set up, there are rep- 
resentatives of each type member school, 
i.e. all-male, all-female, coed, elected to 
an executive board that runs the meet- 
ings. Each member school has one per- 
manent representative and one vote in 
any decision. Any student may attend the 
meetings, which are held the first Sunday 
of each month at a host college. 

Discussions at the first meeting in- 
volved school social events, such as 
mixers, and student sportsmanship at in- 
tercollegiate activities. 

The topic discuss^ at the April 4th 
meeting was student apathy as it exists 
on the tfiree types of compuses, co-«i, 
all male and all female. Student apathy 
was discussed mainly in the fields of 
academics — lack of proper attendance at 
lectures, etc., social affairs — ixwr partici- 
pation at dances and other social events, 
particularly by upperclassmen, and stu- 
dent apathy concerning gener^ campus 
Ufe and school spirit.

PEACE CORPS ASSEMBLY 

ASSEMBLY of April 7, 1965 
S. Fisher '66 
Mr. Dudley Weeks, who served with 
the Peace Corps in Borneo, spoke to 
the student body of D.V.C. about his 
experiences in Borneo and the philoso- 
phy of the Peace Corps. Mr. Weeks was 
an excellent speaker who r^Uy captured 
the attention of the people in the assem- 
bly. 

Weeks stated that the principle idea 
behind the Peace Corps is to get people 
to grasp onto the basic idea of the respon- 
sibility that the individual owes to him- 
self and society. Young people should 
equip themselves with skills and know- 
kdge and try to aid depressed people 
that have health and economic proolems. 
Peace Corps men should have a cause 
directwl by purpose to create a construc- 
tive influence that will upgrade depressed 
people. In order to aid such depressed 
people, whether they are foreign or do- 
mestic, you must first learn to understand 
their culture and let them educate you 
before attempting to educate them; thus,

Federal Government 
Gives Green Light to 
Latest Expansion 

Delaware Valley College has re- 
cei\Tcl word of the approval of a 
$61^5,000.00 loan available under 
the term.s of the Higher Education 
Facilitie.s Act of 1963 to be used in 
the construction of a $927,000.00 
science building. 

The new science facility, to be 
known as the Mandell Science 
Building, will be named in honor 
of Samuel Mandell, Vice-president 
of Food Fair, Inc., and a Trustee 
of the College who has contributed 
substantially to this much-needed 
building. Architecturally, the build- 
ing will be Georgian Colonial, to 
blend with the traditional campus 
architecture, will contain eleven 
laboratories, four classrooms and a 
fully equipped auditorium seating 
152. Construction is expected as 
soon as necessary fonnalities can be 
completed. Groundbreaking cere- 
monies will take place dunng this 
coming A-Day. 

This building will be a welcome 
addition to our Campus. It will help 
relieve the serious need for both 
classroom and laboratory facilities. 

Mr. Steinberg Remains 

L. Ciani, '66 

Mr. Clarence B. Steinberg, Professor of 
English, at present will remain on the 
faculty. A rumor that he was leaving to 
do some research in Europe is, according 
to Mr. Steinberg, without basis. 

He reported that he applied for a 
research grant so that he could study 
abroad, but as of yet the grant is not 
approved and therefore he will remain 
to "enhance our minds with knowledge." 

If Mr. Steinberg does receive the grant, 
he will only depart on a temporary leave 
of absence. According to Mr. Steinberg, 
the chance of receiving the grant is, at 
present, slim. Those students who pushed 
taking English hterature off until next 
year will have to face the fact that they 
will have to learn something anyway.

THE FURROW 



EDITORIALS 



A major project on the list of the many things which we hope to 
accomphsh within the next two years was the construction of a new 
science building. 

We are now assured of this new center which, when fully equipped, 
will cost approximately one million dollars. The funds for tnis building 
and its equipment were acquired through the generosity of one of our 
trustees, Samuel Mandell, and by a loan from the Office of Education 
of the Department of Health, Eaucation and Welfare in Washington. 

Mr. Mandell, who is Vice President of Food Fair, Inc., has made a 
contribution to the College which will cover approximately one quarter 
of the cost of the entire project, which will be named Mandell Science 
Building. 

Housing eleven laboratories, two classrooms, and one lecture hall, 
with all of the required offices and preparation rooms, the building will 
be located between Lasker Hall and the Chapel. It has been designed 
to conform to the architecture of the other buildings on campus. The 
laboratories will contain the most modern equipment required for food 
science, biology and chemistry. The lecture hall will seat one hundred 
and ninety-two students, and will house the most modern in audio-visual 
equipment. 

We should all be most grateful to Mr. Mandell, without whose initial 
contribution, we could not have obtained the large loan from the Office 
of Education. 



March 25, 1965 



Dr. James Work 



Notes from the Office of the Dean of Students 

The Accounting Office has notified the Registrar that all students will be required 
to clear with the Accounting Ofice before taking second semester final examinations. 
This means that each student must obtain a clearance slip before taking his finals. 
This will indicate that he has met all financial obligations for the semester and 
therefore is eligible to take finals. The time period for obtaining these clearance slips 
at the Accounting Office will be between Monday, May 3 and Tuesday, May 11, 
inclusive. 

Dean Meyer reports that the College has been fortunate enough to obtain the 
services of the Secretary of Agricultiu-e of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as 
an assembly speaker. Secretary Leland Bull will address the assembly on April 28 
on the topic of the status of agriculture and the legislation affecting it. This should 
be one of the year's finest assembly programs. 

The Registrar reminds the students that final examinations will be given between 
May 13-21, 1965, and urges them to start reviewing for them now. 

Stuf' its and faculty will be interested to learn of statistics recently published in 
the 196^ edition of the "Comparative Guide to American Colleges". This publication 
reports the latest Unit^ States Office of Education figures for "Institutions conferring 
the largest number of (B.S.) degrees in selected fields". Delaware Valley College 
ranks high in a number of areas including the following: Horticulture, number one; 
Ornamental Horticulture, tied for number five, Food Industry (Technology), tied for 
number four. Dairy Husbandry, tied for number ten, and Agronomy, tied for number 
ten. 



FURROW 

Many people have noticed the relative dearth of authorized publications at 
Delaware Valley this year, and some have even gone to the extremes of making their 
own "papers." Under the auspices of Student Government, and the helpful en- 
couragement of President Work, the publications have been reorganized in an 
effort to bring them closer to the student body. 

The Gleaner and the Furrow are student pubUcations. Letters to the Editor are 
invited. However, with freedom comes a certain measure of responsibility. All letters 
to the Editor must be submitted in typewritten form and must be signed in ink. 
The Furrow will not be a sounding board for unbased, or even based, slander, but 
will rather be a vehicle for intelUgent, constructive criticism. Letters to the Editor 
should be submitted to me, Heruy McCarter, in room 213, Uhnan. 

There is a wealth of material that can be used in the Furrow; many differing 
opinions will be aired if they are offered for publication. All we ask is common sense, 
which, judging by some examples of literature found under doors, may be somewhat 
underabundant in certain elements of campus. 



SOUNDING OFF 

In the Spring a household usually turns to cleaning up the winter's collected 
debris and dust. In keeping with this tradition our campus is being spruced up with 
painstaking care. 

• 

Not wishing to sound critical but with encouragement in mind I would support 
a clean up campaign, e8i)ecially now. 

The point I have in mind is an objection; an objection not with what is being 
done. The seeding on our grass areas was an excellent move but somewhat futile 
as the sound was not prepared beforehand and so small amount of seed ended on 
the road. 

What I consider to be a real detriment to the appearance of the campus are 
the numerous washed-out, unpaved areas ( vicinity of the library annex ) and potholes 
in some of the paved areas (Alumni Lane). 

The grassy areas coukl be roped off and fines imposed for short-cuts, and a letter 
job made of the seeding. The pav«nent could be patched for the time being and 
the washed-out areas fiUed, gravel ^read, or planted with shrubs according to the 
nature of the washout. 



Anything worth doing is worth doing right.

THE IMAGE OF 
THE AGGIES 

by James L. Harieis '65 
Student Government President '64-'65 

What is happening to the image of 
the Aggies? In the years past, we have 
had problems in the dormitories, at social 
events etc., but no member of today's 
student body can recall conduct such as 
has been exhibited by some of our stu- 
dents this year. 

This year we are having problems with 
the pool room, mixers, dormitory life, and 
several other areas of campus life. The 
conduct that has been demonstrated is 
totally inexcusable and a disgrace to 
every true "Aggie." These are the senti- 
ment of your student government, as 
expressed at the last several meetings. 

The Government wants every student 
to know that the sole purpose and aim 
of its activities is a more enjoyable and 
fruitful atmosphere at D. V. C. The 
government considers the actions of some 
of our students as a detriment to this 
good. Therefore, any student found 
guilty of actions which are contrary to 
the general welfare of the student body 
and college will be prosecuted to the 
fullest extent of the authority vested in 
the Student Government. The Government 
feels a very strong obligation to take ac- 
tion which will preserve the admirable 
image of the "Aggies." 

However, can the Student Government, 
through enforcing its penal code, or the 
"office," through strict disciplinary pol- 
icies, solve the problem of the poor con- 
duct of some of our students The answer 
is no! Who is at fault? The student body 
and faculty are at fault through their 
lackadaisical indifference toward the con- 
duct of our students. Anytime anyone 
directly connected with the college ob- 
serves misconduct on the part of a stu- 
dent, he has the obligation to either do 
something about it himself or give the 
information to the proper people. Failure 
to do this is as wrong as committing the 
act itself. 

The problems which we are having are 
not going to be solved by the "office" 
or Student Government. The entire col- 
lege community is going to have to take 
an active part, for this is a community 
problem. This is the best approach to- 
ward preserving the image of the "Ag- 
gies," 

Quite often issues are discussed and 
decisions are made by the Student Gov- 
ernment with the student body not being 
fully aware of the reasoning behind the 
actions of the government. Articles writ- 
ten by the S. G. President will appear in 
all future editions of the "Furrow." This 
will be done in an effort to keep the 
student body fully informed of the 

Government position or stand concerning 
campus activities. 



PEACE CORPS 
ASSEMBLY 

(Continued from page 1) 

a reciprocal relationship must develop 
between the Peace Corps man and the 
individual. 

Weeks spent some time describing per- 
sonal experiences he encountered in Bor- 
neo ancl then asked for questions from 
the audience. 

Mr. Weeks met with interested students 
in Work Hall loimge in the afternoon. 



CAMPUS PRIDE . . . 

Next time you're walking around cam- 
pus take a close look at certain aspects 
of our campus. Take special note at the 
trash thrown around by our students on 
the parking lot, around the dorms and 
the clasrooms, students wilfully destroying 
shrubs and plantings on campus, and also 
doing their best to make classrooms less 
then they should be. 

Would you come to the conclusion 
that the students responsible for these 
conditions are interested in the better- 
ment of school spirit. Its doubtful if you 
would. 

No students concentrates on ruining 
the beauty of the campus, but many stu- 
dents who simply throw a few pieces of 
paper around or deface any part of hte 
campus are a part of the overall undesir- 
able effect. 

Take pride in the appearance of your 
campus. It is the first thing that a person 
sees who visits here for the first time. 
Potential students, parents, alumni and 
friends of the college notice destruction 
of the campus appearance. Take pride 
in the face of the campus that is pre- 
sented to the public. 

Next time you have some paper in 
your hand, save it until you can dispose 
of it properly, keep the appearance of 
dorms and parking lot neat. Hesitate the 
next time you have an lurge to deface the 
walls or desks in the cla.«rooms. Remem- 
ber you may only do it once but that 
once adds to the general marring of 
campus beauty. 

Take pride in your (umpus. If, you the 
students, lack this pride, no amount of 
effort on the part ot the administration 
will instill the pride in you. It's up to 
you, so let's cooperate to make our campus 
a place of true beauty and a source of 
honest pride. 



Letter to The Editor . . . 

With all the talk lately about the 
weak morals displayed on American cam- 
puses, I think it would be a positive step 
if the Administration would allow the 
holding of weekly reUgious services on 
the D.V.C. campus. 

Wouldn't it have a more unifying ef- 
fect if our students could attend church 
on the campus with their fellow students 
instead of going into Doylestown? 
Wouldn't it help the general campus 
attitude? 

On other college campuses such ser- 
vices are held. With httle or no difficulty 
such areas as the gym or Allman Hall 
could be made suitable for services. 

Just what are the reasons behind the 
ban by the administration of denomin- 
ational services on campus. This is a 
chance for the Administration to give a 
boost to the spirit and attitude of the 
students.

INTERCOLLEGIATE 
COUNCIL 

(Continued from page 1) 

Discussion involved the realization of 
the campus inroblems and the solutions 
that each of the colleges were using in 
trying to cope with their particular prob- 
lems. By having presented their solutions 
to the problems it was hoped that all of 
the participating colleges would benefit. 

The May meeting will be held on the 
D.V.C. campus. The topic to be discussed 
will be 'The Role of the Student Govern-

DELAWARE VALLEY CONFERENCE BANQUET 



J. Vaneschak '66 

On March 11, 1965, the Delaware Val- 
ley Conference honored its member's 
adiletes at its annual banquet held at 
Rutgers of South Jersey. After the audi- 
ence was placed in blithesome mood by 
the merriment of the guest speaker Ed 
Myers, humorist and ex-collegian football 
and basketball official, the presentation of 
the conference awards was next on the 
agenda. 

In basketball, the conference trophy 
went \o Rutgers of South Jersey which, 
after winning the championship for 3 
years, will retire the traveling trophy. 
Thomas Lewis, a freshman from D.V.C., 
was named to the conference All-Star 
team. Honorable mention went to another 
D.V.C. freshman, David Yedinak. 

The Delaware Valley Conference Base- 
ball Championship went to Philadelphia 
College of Pharmacy, with Delaware Val- 
ley College finishing second, one game 
off the pace. 

As expected, Delaware Valley Col- 



lege received top honors in cross-coun- 
try. Besides taking home the conference 
trophy, Louis Coppens copped the Out- 
standing Harrier Award for his con- 
sistently brilliant performances through- 
out the past season as well as his career. 

In bowling, Delaware Valley College 
again pocketed the top prize. The team, 
consisting of Captain John Albrecht '65, 
Fred Hofsaess '67, Walter Keppler '66, 
and George Mahaffey '66, won seven out 
of the eight games in the championship 
tournament. George Mahaffey took the 
high game honors with a 228- pin-fall. 

Captain Art Tucke '66 accepted the 
conference golf trophy for last year's 
championship won by Delaware Valley 
College. Art paced the team with the low 
score of the tournament. 

The host college, Rutgers, won the 
Ping Pong tournament going away by 
taking 5 out of the 7 games. 

In all, Delaware Vauey College walked 
away with 3 conference championship 
trophies as well as several individual 
awards.

Delaware Valley College honored its 
animal husbandry judging team, basket- 
ball players and members of its wrestling 
team at a student Assembly held on 
Wednesday, March 17. Ned A. Linta, 
Director of Athletics, presented special 
awards for 1964-1965 to senior George 
Tiefenthaler as the Most Valuable Bas- 
ketball player, and to freshman Thomas 
L. Lewis as High Scorer. Senior Donald 
Day, Captain of the wrestling team, was 
named the Most Valuable Wrestler. 

Linta also announced that two D.V.C. 
basketball players were singled out for 
Delaware Valley Conference honors — 
Tom Lewis being named, and Dave 
Yedinak given Honorable Mention for 
the Delaware Valley Conference All-Star 
team. 

As President of the Delaware Valley 
Conference, Linta also announced addi- 
tional honors for D.V.C. teams and pre- 
sented trophies to the bowling team as 
Conference champions for the third 
straight season; to the cross country 
team as the 1964 champions; and to the 
golf team, also the 1964 Conference 
champiorts. 

Tiefenthaler, a 5' 10" senior from 
Ambler, Pa. ajid Most Valuable basket- 
ball player, was an outstanding guard 
for the entire season. He led the team 
with his play-making and inspired lead- 
ership. An accurate shooter, George 
averaged 6.7 points per game and 
grabbed off 88 rebounds in 20 games. 
He was valuable for his ability to spark 
the team with his shooting when they 
were down, and set up shots for his 
teammates when they were hitting. 

As an experienced senior and team 
captain, Tiefenthaler will be missed next 
year. One of the Aggie problems will be 
to find an adequate replacement for him. 

Lewis, an outstanding shooter from 
York, Pa., led his team in scoring this 
year as he averaged 14.6 points per 
game. The slender 6'3" forward scored 
20 points in his first game and maintained 
this lead throughout the season. In the 
Aggies' 20 games, Lewis scored 293 
points to lead the team to their best 
record since 1957. The Aggies finished 
9-11 for the year and Lewis' performance 
was one of the most important factors 
in that success. He also led the team in 
rebounding as he picked off 215 for 
an average of 10.8 per game. 

Dave Yedinak, from New Britain, Pa., 
given Honorable Mention for the Dela- 
ware Valley Conference All-Star team, 
sparked the Aggies this year with his 
tremenodus clutch shooting and defense. 
He hit repeatedly from outside with his 
long, left-handed set-shot and harassed 
opposing guards into numerous errors. 



He ix)ssesses an outstanding pair of hands 
and a quickness that is disccmcerting to 
opp^)nents. 

Yedinak a\eraged 10.7 points per game 
and was the Aggies' fourth leading re- 
lM)under with 113 rebounds. 

Basketball coach Alan Hartley pre- 
sented letter and sweater awards to the 
following members of the basketball 
team: John Cunningham '68, Glenn D. 
Jerrell '68, Ronald S. Kowalik '68, 
Thomas L. Lewis '68, Da\e Yedinak '68, 
Thomas W. Brown '67, Richard Baughn 
'65, George Tiefenthaler '65. 

Coach Robert Schweid presented junior 
varsity letters to Otis Armstrong '67, Dave 
Benner '67, Peter Conney '68, Richard 
DeMott '66, John Morek '68, Jon Slate 
'67, Edward Furman '68. 

Don Day, from Drexel Hill, Pa., finishes 
an outstanding wrestling career this year. 
Day, wrestling at 157 pounds, was team 
captain for three years in a row, attesting 
to the high regard his teammates have 
for him. He led the Aggies through his 
college career both as a wrestler and as 
a person. 

The varsity and sweater awards for 
wrestling were presented by Coach H. 
W. Graver to: John R. Eberle '68, Robert 
E. Felton '68, John A. Hawk '68, Bruce 
E. Cover '68, Gary L. Brubaker '68, Wil- 
liam Hartman '67, Charles E. Suloff '66, 
Donald A. Day '65. 

The D.V.C. Bowling Team, as Dela- 
ware Valley Conference Champions, re- 
ceived medallions to mark their achieve- 
ment. Members of this championship 
team were John Albrecht '65, Captain; 
George Mahaffey '66, Walter Ktppler 
'66, Frederick R. Hofsaess '67, James E. 
Elias '68. 

Dr. Tibor Pelle, coach of tfie animal 
husbandry judging team, handed out 
awards to his team. Before the awards 
were handed out. Dr. Pelle gave his 
usual witty, humorous and enjoyable 
speech. He expressed his appreciation for 
having a chance to work with such a 
fine group of young men. Dr. Pelle ad- 
mitted that the team didn't have an ex- 
cellent record, but still Delaware Valley 
College had a team to be proud of. 

This year the team competed at the 
Eastern National Livestock Exposition, 
Pennsylvania Livestock Exposition, East- 
ern States Livestock Exposition and the 
International Livestock Exposition in 
Chicago. Bob Clements, Don Day and 
Bill Kronen did well as individuals. 

The team consists of: Bill Clements 
'65, Don Day '65, Bill Kronen '65, Bill 
Croushore '65, Miles Neivert '65, Ronald 
Dalrymple '65, John Albrecht '65, Charles 
Gembe--junior alternate '66, John Han- 
sen — junior alternate '66.

D. V.C. Hosts Soil Conservation Meeting 



FOLK MUSIC FESTIVAL 



M. Bausher '67 

The Soil Consenation StK-iety, which 
has been in existence on our campus for 
a short three years, nio\cd forward by 
being honored with the presence of rep- 
resentatives of soil conscrxation in all 
of its different phases, includinR rcpre- 
sentati\es of the student chapters of 
Rutgers and Glassboro State anci the na- 
tional organization. 

Among the distinguished guests were 
Mrs. Van Powley, who represented her 
husband who is the ad\iser for Glass- 
boro State; Dr. Mahn, Science professor at 
Glassboro; Prof. Robert Hanna, Rutgers 
adviser and member of the Extension of 
Rutgers University College of Agriculture; 
Mr. Joseph Sacco, Council \Iember of 
the Northeastern Region of the Soil Con- 
servation Society of America; Mr. Edward 
Miller, Director Neshaminy Valley Water- 
shed Association; Mr. John Nehoda, 
Bucks County, Soil Conservation District; 
also in attendance were members of the 
Glasboro, Rutgers and Delaware Valley 
Colleges. Among those attending from 
our college were Mrs. Smith, Administra- 
tive Assistant to Dr. James Work; Dr. 
Julian Prundeanu, our student advisor; 
Dr. Feldstein, Dr. Blackmon, and Mr. 
Snyder. 

The meeting was called to acquaint the 



student chapters with some of their local 
counterjiarts and discuss the work that 
is being done in their areas. We were 
pleased to find that our chapter is Ix-ing 
lumored as the first student chapter that 
has gained national recognition by the 
annoimcement of the results of our last 
elections in the next issue of the Soil 
and Water Conservation Journal 

Mrs. Van Powley discussed the upcom- 
ing plans for the national comention 
which will take place in Philadelphia 
this year. The convention will be held 
on August 21, 22 and 23. During the 
con\ention the Delaware Valley Chapter 
will man an information booth for the 
visiting delegates; also two papers will 
be presented by four of our members, 
one by L'ave Washko and Sam Huffman 
and tne .>ther by Dick Halderman and 
Doug Christi. These papers were selected 
for presentation to the national organiza- 
tion meeting in Philadelphia this sum- 
mer. There will be not more than four 
papers presented at the meeting; we 
consider our representation an outstanding 
example of the caliber of the members 
of the Delaware Valley Chapter. We 
hope to work closely with the national 
organization and assist in making the 
coming convention a success for all con- 
cerned. 



INTRAMURALS 



WRESTLING 

R. Lichenwalner '66 

The newly inaugurated intramural 
wrestling program brought to a close the 
winter intramurals. The An. Hus. Club 
advanced 7 men into the 8 finals of the 
intramural wrestling tournament to walk 
away with the title. The standings were: 

An. Hus 60 

Dairy 33 

O. H 31 

Science 21 

Hort 13 

In the 130 lb. class. Waters of Science 
pinned Tuckman of OH in 0:33 seconds 
of the 2nd period. 

In the 137 lb. class, John "Old Man" 
Albrecht of An. Hus. had complete con- 
trol over Bob Gensemer of Science before 
pinning him with 0:18 seconds left in 
the 2na period. 

The 147 lb. class provided the quickest 
and most exciting match of the evening. 
Norci of Hort. got an escape in the 2nd 
period to take a 1-0 lead. In the start 
of the 3rd period Glenn McLain of An. 
Hus. got a takedown to take a short-lived 
lead as Norci came back with a reversal to 
take the match, 3-2. 

The 157 lb. class matched two wrestlers 
who know how to wrestle. Al Andrews 
of Dairy rode Nick Kohut of An. Hus. to 
a 5-2 victory. Al got his points on a take- 
down, reversal, and escape. 

The 167 lb. class matched wrestling 
knowledge against desire, and knowledge 
in the form of Griscom of An. Hus. 
stacked Jim Harteis of Dairy in 0:30 
seconds of the 3rd period. 

The 177 lb. class was the shortest 
match of the evening. It took Hartman 
of An. Hus. 0:43 seconds to pin "Moon" 
Mullen of Orn. Hort. 

In another quick bout, Steve Fisher of 
An. Hus. overpowered Tanzola of O. H. 
in 1:37 to win the 191 lb. class. 

The heavyweights provided the best 
show of the evening. It took two periods 
of ov«"time before Steve Battershefl could 
muster enough control over Bob Taylor 
of Dairy for a 7-2 decision. 

There was no score in the 1st period. 
The 2nd period saw a Battershell escape. 
In the last period, Taylor got a reversal, 
but Battershell got another escape to 
send the match into overtime. There was 
no score in the 1st ovwtime period as 
the wrestlers were too dead to move. In 
the second overtime period, Battershell 
got a reversal and a predicament to cap- 
ture the 5th individual championship 
for the An. Hus. Club. 

It is to be decided later on by the in- 
tramural council if and how these points 
will be calculated into the figuring of 
the supremacy award. 



BASKETBALL 

R. Lichtenwalner '66 
The Intramural basketball title was 
won by Science, and the first Intramural 
Wrestling title was won by An. Hus. The 
final baslcetball standings: 

Science 17- 2 

An. Hus 17- 3 

Dairy 16- 4 

Agronomy 9- 9 

Poultry 9- 9 

Om-Hort 9-10 

An. Hus. "B" 6-12 

Science won the crowm on its all-around 
excellent play. They combined excellent 
shooting and quick ball handling to score. 
They made up for their lack of height 
by having all 5 men crash the boards. 

An. Hus. "A" took second place by 
winning a post-season playoff for second 
from Dairy, 37-36. The An. Hus. men 
made up for their poorer shooting per- 
centage by superior rebounding and 
stronger defense. The An. Hus. men, R. 
Lichtenwalner, C. Gembe, D. Shultz, 
John Kimmett, Gip Gerlach and Barry 
Qhthe, won 4 games in the last week, 
including a 67-33 stomping of Science to 
tie Dairy. 

Dairy, led by Tom Kavanagh, Richard 
Scott and Wade Traviss, out rebounded 
the top 3 teams in the league. 

Hort., which had been in 4th place, 
forfeited their last 3 games to eliminate 
themselves from the standings. 

Agronomy, a team which had skilled 
individual performers in Don Breiner, 
Terry Wueschinski, Steve Fisher, and 
Chuck Zehner, never organized itself 
into a team and had to settle for a tie 
for 4th place with Poultry. 

Poultry picked up some good freshmen 
players and played good ball through 
the year, as noted by their victory over 
Science.

'68 (An. Hus.) and Bob Taylor '68 (Dairy). 



J. Martin, '67 

On March 13, 1965, the Contemporary 
Club, in ainjunction with the Circle K 
and the Student Government, sponsored 
the United Nations Folk Singing Festival. 
The United Nations Foreign Student 
Committee of Doylestown brought ap- 
proximately 40 foreign students up to 
the Doylestown area from Philadelphia 
to live with host families for the week- 
end. On Saturday night all of the foreign 
students, the host families and students 
of Delaware Valley College converged 
on Neumann Gymnasium for a night of 
entertainment. The entertainment was 
supplied by the Bucks County Folk Song 
Society and some of the students at Dela- 
ware Valley College. 

The students who sang were Dave 
Blood '68, Alan Auwater "67, Rich Beck- 
er '66, and a duet by Roy Dyer '68 and 
Charlie Byrd '68. It is interesting to note 
that Roy wrote the songs he sang, 
"Gober Peas" and "The Unnamed Song," 
himself. 

Karl Dieterichs, the founder of the 
Folk Singing Society, organized and 
brought with him some members of the 
Society who enjoy playing and singing 
folk songs. One of the outstanding per- 
formances was given by the "Odes." This 
group consists of Karl at the banjo, Denis 
Bobincheck at the wash-tub base, and 
Jackie Bricker at the guitar. They sang 
a number of songs, including one or two 



STATION STAYS 

The Public Utility Commission rejected 
a proposal by Reading Co. to abandon 
its passenger flag-stop at Farm School 
in Doylestown, Bucks County. 

End of the service to and from Phila- 
delphia would not only create incon- 
venience, but the railroad's saving, "it 
any," would be negligible, the PUC said. 
hTe proposal was protested by the Dela- 
ware Valley College of Science and Ag- 
riculture, which maintains a shelter at 
the stop. 



folk songs. The other outstanding per- 
formance was the "hoe -Down" music 
played by some of the members and a 
friend. Pop, who has played the fiddle 
since he was a boy. The rest of the group 
sang songs of varied nature and origin. 
After the entertainment [was finished] 
all the audience was invited to come to 
Lasker Hall for refreshments [and con- 
versation].

BASKETBALL TEAM 

S. Fisher '66 
Under the leadership of Mr.» Allen 
Hartley, the Aggies racked up their best 
season since 1957. Due to the excellent 
leadership and playmaking of the team's 
most valuable player, George Tiefen- 
thaler, and the brilliant efforts of numer- 
ous freshmen, the team zipped by such 
teams as Moravian, Wilkes, Eastern Bap- 
tist (tournament team), and Pennsyl- 
vania Military College. Freshman Tom 
Lewis was the key rebounder and scorer 
on the team. Lewis was also select^ to 
the Delaware Valley Conference All- 
Conference team. Dave Yedinak was one 
of the main sparks of the team, showing 
magnificent hustle, great ball handling 
abilitv and a shot from outside that is 
unbeuevable. John Cunningham, also a 
freshman, is a man with lots of go and 
great defensive ability. Ron Kowalik '68, 
was second in both points and rebounds. 



1965 BASEBALL 
PREVIEW 

J. Vaneschak '66 

With the advent of n)ring, baseball 
has made its presence known on the 
campus. Although the weatherman has 
not been very cooperative as of late, 
Coach Doug York has had a brief glimpse 
at the squad with a bri^t future in the 
up-coming seas(Hi. 

Here's how the team lines up f<Mr 1965. 

This year's infield is a carbon copy of 
last year's, with Ed Collins '66 at 1st, 
Dave Spinella '67 at the "keystone sack," 
Capt. Don Day '65 at short, and Tom 
McMillen '65 at the hot comer. Bill 
Fausak '68, Dick Campbell '68, Bill 
Endriss '68, Joe Franchella '68. Henry 
Cowell '68, and George Mahaffey '66 
will be ready to fill in at die oppcurtune 
moment. 

With the loss of Don Goss through 
graduation, the "Battle of the Backstop" 
is being staged with the affair a three- 
some in nature, [with] the gladiators be- 
ing junior Leigh Edwards, sophomore 
Russ Albright, and frosh Don Brockley. 

The outfield will be patrolled by Bill 
Hartman '67, Bill Mitchell '66, and one 
of three freshmen, Dave Yedinak, John 
Cunningham, or Floyd Bitter, all audi- 
tioning for the "fly catching" part. 

Last year's pitching staff has been 
strengthened considerably with the fine 
showing of late by several freshmen 
hurlers. Ken Dietrick '68, Dennis 
Dobrowobki '68, Bill Dunscombe '68, 
Vinni Ficca '68, and Tony Wiezavick '68 
along with Bob Schaumloeffel '67 and 
John Vaneschak '66, recipient of last 
year's Most Valuable Pitcher Award, wiU 
try to silence the bats of the opposition 
with their various offerin^^. 



Glenn Jerrell '68 showed the most im- 
provement as the season progressed. 

Appearing for the last time for the 
Aggies, George Tiefenthaler has made a 
name for himself for his fighting spirit 
and never-say-die attitude. "Tief was the 
team's morale builder and leader; he is 
an excellent ball handler and lead the 
team in the assists department. George 
will be greatly missed by both the Aggies 
basketball team and the College in the 
coming year. 

Dick Baughn '65, and Tom Brown '67 
were also in there fighting and made a 
good showing throughout the season. 

The Aggies J.V. team under the direc- 
tion of Coach Robert Schweid also 
turned in a succes.sfiil season. These are 
the men in the coming years who will 
strengthen the varsity roster. The JV 
team included Ed Furman '68, Pete 
Cooney '68, John Slate '67, John Norek 
'68, Richard DeMott '66, Dave Benner 
'67, and Otis Armstrong '67.

HIGH TENNIS OUTLOOK 
L. Ciani, '66 

In our sixth year of tennis at E>elaware 
Valley, the chances of coming out as 
a winning team are the best yet. Return- 
ing to the team are John Speckhals, 
Chung Huang, Hillary Zich and Albert 
Muscle. A new member of the team, 
William McNamara, is already showing 
the signs of an outstanding player. 

Other newcomers trying for the team 
include David Crtuner, Victor Kalina, 
Keven Keim and Gleim Jerrel. Stephen 
Krupnick, a transfer student, will nave 
to wait another year before he may play, 
according to the conference rules.

WRESTLERS BUILD 
FOR FUTURE 

S. Fisher '66 
Coach Bill Graver stated "Wait until 
next year." This statement could not be 
more true for the Aggie wrestling team. 
Consisting of five freshmen, three sopho- 
mores, two juniors and one senior, the 
wrestling squad faced tough varsity com- 
I>etition this year from Lycoming, Wilkes, 
Lincoln, Farleigh Dickinson, Moravian, 
Hofstra, Philadelphia College of Bible, 
and Monmouth. The squad won only 
two of its eight meets, but oiu- men were 
in there fighting. The inexperienced 
freshmen and sophomores will probably 
grow into experienced, rough competitors 
next year. 

Charles Suloff, one of the juniors on the 
squad, takes over next year as team cap- 
tain; Charlie is a strong, well rounded, 
experienced, and able wresder who will 
run a strong squad. Freshman Bruce 
Cover seems to be a bright prospect 
among the younger members of the 
squad. Bruce combined great ability with 
strength to compile his 4 & 4 record this 
season. The other freshmen, John Hawk, 
Bob Felton, John Eberle and Kermit 
Moyer, didn't have the greatest records, 
but as in most cases, records fail to show 
the real ability of these men. In a year 
or so these freshmen will bring many a 
fine record to Delaware Valley College. 

Sophomorfts George Corless, Gary Bru- 
baker, and Bill Hartman are coming 
along fine. Hartman looks to be the man 
with real potential. Harbnan is very alert 
and quick to make moves; due to his apt- 
ness aHrtman earned himself a three win- 
three loss- one tie record. Junior Dave 
Johnson is a man with real "guts". John- 
son has made the team for three years 
and always has had good fighting spirit. 

As stated before, junior Charles Suloff 
is one of the more experienced and tal- 
ented men on the squad. Charlie lost some 
real heart breakers this year, and his 
record fell far short of the action that 
took place on the mats. Suloff will be 
back next year for his last season, so look 
for some real action. 

The finest wrestler to pass through the 
doors of Delaware Valley College is about 
to leave after four superb years of com- 
petition. Don Day has the stamina, ability, 
attitude, and leadership of the real 
champion that he is. Don has captained 
the wrestling team for three years and 
has compiled an almost urJieard of 
personal record of EIGHTEEN WINS 
and SIX LOSSES. Don lost four matches 
this season by a mere total of five points. 
The team and the College will greatly 
miss this athlete, man, and scholar.

CINDER PREVIEW 

G. Dotterweich '66 
This year's track team is the biggest 
and has great possibilities of being one 
of the best. With the help of many prom- 
ising freshmen, the team will have suffi- 
cient depth to win meets that in other 
years would have been close. 

Back for their final season are 
DVC's famous "Gold Dust Twins" Jim 
Murphy '65 and Lou Coppens '65. Mur- 
phy will run the middle distances, while 
Coppens has his challenge in the longer 
races. Another returning senior is Roland 
Bergner, who will give assistance in the 
discus. The returning juniors include 
Dick "Blade" DeMott, who looks very 
imprwsive in the newly added hop-step- 
and-jump, along with the high jump and 
long jump. 

Bill Klementisz, a former runner from 
Penn Ridge, will be a valuable man in 
the hurdles and high jump. Bill Cottrell 
is the man to watch in the shot and dis- 
cus; his preseason workouts indicate that 
this could be a verv good year. 

Our semi-decathlon man is Gus Dotter- 
weich '66, who will compete in the pole 
vault, long jump, 100, 220 and 880 relay. 

Gary Shisler, another point getter, will 
pole vault, throw the javelin, and shot 
put. 

Rick Bohl, who missed last season, is 
looking for a good year with his hurdling. 

The sophomores, who as freshmen 
showed much ability and are returning 
in better form than ever, are Jim Gianaris, 
an up and coming hurdler and quarter 
miler, a boy that has been improving 
very rapidly and will really do a job 
this year. 

Ira Walker on the 880-and mile will be 
a hard boy to beat this year when he 
adds speed to his great stride. 

Mike Walton, a pole vaulter and low 
hurdler, will be out hustling along with 
Chuck Rynn, who is looking for a good 
year in the 220 and 440, along with the 
relays. 

A new addition to the team wiH be Paul 
Quintavalle, who plans to give Cottrell 
a problem in the shot and dia^us. 

We also have Pat "Elk" Hawes, who 
will high jump, and is looking very prom- 
ising in the hop-step and jump. Ken Kol- 
odziej is backing Hawes in the high jump. 

This year we are well represented by 
the freshmen class which is filling the 
weak spots. In the javeHn we have Clifford 
Schwacke, Richard Richardson and Bruce 
Cover. In the sprints we have George 
Tradewell, Greg Rich, Leon Hoover, Den- 
nis Burd and Paul Kiry; Richard Kelly is 
in the discus and Barry Bhthe in the 
high jump and broad jump.

THE FURROW 



CLUB & CLASS ACTIVITIES 



FRESHMAN CLASS 

W. Bobb '68 
As A-Day approaches, all over the Del. 
Val. Campus tnere is the excitement of a 
great college coming to life, getting ready 
to put on the best show possible for the 
public, trying to out surpass everything 
already accomplished. This fact is becom- 
ing apparent as the members of the fresh- 
man cuss hurry about their task of form- 
ulating their part in the activities. 

The class, as in past years, is in 
charge of the A-Day dance on Saturday 
night. May 1 from 8:30 to 12:00. Ray 
Mozzer, decorating chairman, has re- 
ported that so far the committee is pro- 
gressing quite nicely with its '65 theme, 
Sharazade; although exact details are be- 
ing withheld, it will center around an 
Indian formal garden design. Also, he 
reported that the class will be sponsoring 
a raffle on a Remington Roller Shaver 
before A-Day to help lessen some of the 
expenses of his committee. 

Other class news reported by Dick 
Smith, Freshmen Class President, is that 
at the March 15 meeting of the class, 
Walter Bobb was appointed chairman 
for next year's Sophomore Concert, and 
that tentative plans for the program are 
now being made. He also wishes to ex- 
press his thanks for a job well done to 
the class for having 57% of its members 
with an average above 2.0 and only 15% 
with an average below 1.5. "A job well 
'done, and keep up the good work! 

JUNIOR CLASS 

R. McMuUen '66 

The Junior Class has 120 students and 
approximately 30 members. This can be 
stated thusly due to the lack of interest 
shown by participation in class activities. 
Are the members of the Junior class 
aware of the fact that there is a Senior 
Prom and Yearbook next year? 
. These activities, in order to be a suc- 
cess, will require more than average 
class participation. There is a stafiF set 
up for this purpose but they cannot do 
everything. 

Class pictures were taken recently; 
however, some individuals failed to show 
up for their sitting. Is it to be assumed 
that these persons do not intend to 
graduate in 1966? 

Pictures are also needed of activities 
occurring during our stay at D. V. C. 
which pertain to those of the Junior 
Class. 

Presendy the yearbook is being set up 
the best way possible and to suit the 
tastes of the staff. Ideas of the class mem- 
bers, however, will be readily welcomed 
and definitely used if they are acceptable 
and in good taste. 

You are undoubtedly wondering who 
are the members of these staflFs. Well, 
the most practical way to solve this 
problem is to come to a meeting and 
find out. 

CONCERT '65 

D. Spinella '67 

On March 6th the Sophomore class 
presented The Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra 
in Concert. The Orchestra was led by L«e 
Castle who was an original member of 
the fabulous Dorsey Orchestra of a 
d^^ade ago. Vocalist Marilyn Mitchell 
added much to the program with her 
versions of many popular times. 

Those who attended had a very en- 
joyable evening as they listened to such 
favorites as "So Rare," selectitms from 
"My Fair Lady," and many other tunes. 

The Sophomore class spent many 
hours working to make the evening a suc- 
cess. It is hoped that in the futvure the 
entire student body will give their sup- 
port to such class activities as this Con- 
cert. Perhaps with more enthusiasm on 
the part of the entire Sophomore class 
and with the co-operation of the Fresh- 
men, Juniors, ana Seniors, this affair 
could have been much more rewarding 
both for the Sophomore class and the 
College. 



AGRONOMY CLUB 

S. Fisher '66 
Under the leadership of president Jay 
Dunn and Agronomy Dept. head Dr. 
Julian Prundeanu, the Agronomy Club 
was quite active this year. On October 
21, 1965, the Club traveled to the Un- 
ited States Agricultural Research Station 
in Beitsville, Maryland. At the insect 
pathology and physiology labs, the latest 
experiments on insect control by biolo- 

f;ical means were explained. Following 
unch, the Club was guided through the 
plant science greenhouses. 

Experiments in the greenhouses rang- 
ed from the effects of various light per- 
iods to the breeding of field crops for 
higher production and less susceptibility 
to insects and disease. 

For a few months now, the Club has 
been planning our part in D.V.C's A- 
Day activities. Many members of the 
Club plan to exhibit projects in the 
Agronomy club tent. The Club will com- 
pete for ribbons on a class basis with 
an overall Grand Champion. 

Spring elections were held on Feb. 11. 

President — Lucien Maurer '66; Vice- 
president, Charles Suloff '66; Secretary, 
Thomas Pheiffer '66; Treasurer, Sam 
Crossley '66; A-Day Rep., Bob Kalm- 
bacher '68; I*ublications Rep., Steve 
Fisher '66; Intramural Rep., Gene Hand- 
werk '66; Corresponding Secretary, Ar- 
land Shantz '66; Activities Chairman, 
Frank Simmons '67. 

On April 1 the Club held its annual 
banquet at CoUegeville. Dr. Ellery 
French, a member of the Biology Depart- 
ment faculty at D.V.C., spoke and showed 
slides of his experiences in the chemical 
industry abroad. 

SCIENCE SOCIETY 

B. Hanthome, '67 

The Science Society is planning numer- 
ous events to culminate the year's activ- 
ities. On Thursday evening, March 17, 
the Society invited Dr. Lewis to speak 
on nitroexplosives. 

Future plans of the Society include a 
banquet in honor of, and as a send-off 
for our graduating senior Science and 
Food Industry majors. There is also a 
trip planned to a professional convention 
in Atlantic City. 

On April 1, a film, "The Strange Case 
of the Cosmic Rays," will be shown, and 
on May 6, there will be a lecture and 
demonstration of the Optical Maser (the 
laser). Bell Telephone will have a laser 
here at that time for a demonstration. 

The student body is cordially invited 
to both of these programs, for the Science 
Society feels that most students on 
campus will be interested in programs of 
this nature. 

ANIMAL HUSBANDRY 
CLUB 

R. Lichtenwalner '66 

Earlier in the year, the An. Hus. Club 
voted to accept affiliation with the Na- 
tional Block and Bridle Club. This af- 
filiation enhances the position of club 
members because of such things as 
national recognition, scholarships, and 
the industry's communications. 

The animals for A-Day have been 
chosen by the students, leaving only a 
few spring lambs not picked. Halters and 
brushes are available from Richard Koes. 

This year the An. Hus. trip, which will 
be held on April 6th, will be to Beits- 
ville, Maryland. At Beitsville, we shall 
see the various experiments underway 
and the equipment used. 

The club will select from its Seniors 
its representative for the Block and 
Bridle Merit Award Winner. This award 
is won on the basis of the person's ac- 
tivities in his field and his accomplish- 
ments in the classroom. 

The officers for the '65-'66 period are: 
President Dave Sthultz ^66 

Vice-President Lee Wagner '66 

Treasurer Richard Koes '66 

Secretary Fred Hofsaess '67 

"A''-Day Charles Gembe '66 

Int. Rep Gary Brubaker '67 

Program ChaUrman ... George Cor less '67 



SOIL CONSERVATION 

M. Bausher '67 
The Soil Conservation ScK-iety is plan- 
ning a project to reforest part of the 
college grounds this spring. The land 
to be planted is located on the road 
from farm 3 and consists of a tract of 5 
acres, which will be planted an acre 
each year by the Club. Under the direc- 
tion of Dr. Prundeanu and Mr. Forl^s, 
the members cleared the land of all 
scrub trees prior to planting. The trees 
to be planted are Scotch Pine, Douglas 
Fir, and White Pine. This project is one 
of many which the club will be actively 
taking part during the school year. 

Dr. Prundeanu, our faculty adviser, 
joined the Student Chapter Committee of 
the Soil Conservation Society; this honor 
has brought the club and the school 
national recognition. 

The Delaware Valley Chapter is hav- 
ing a meeting with some of the student 
chapters in April to discuss the forth- 
coming national convention which will 
be held in Philadelphia, Pa. on August 
il2-25 of this year. Two members of our 
chapter will present papers at the conven- 
tion dealing with conservation practices 
in the New Jersey and Southeastern Penn- 
sylvania districts. 

The club has also elected new officers 
who are as follows: 

President David Washko '67 

Vice-PresiderU Samul Huffman '66 

Treasurer Walter Simmons '67 

Secretary Michael Bausher '67 

Public Relations Roy Van Teyens '67 

A-Day Representative 

Garwood Hoagland '67 

Faculty Adviser Dr. Julian Prundenu 

Under the direction of its new officers 
the club looks forward to another suc- 
cessful year. 



DAIRY 

J. Martin '67 

On March 18, 1965 the Dairy Society 
of Delaware Valley College was enter- 
tained by another in a series of speak- 
ers. Mr. Eugene Richards, who recently 
returned from the Republic of China, 
spoke [to us] on 'The Republic of China." 
Mr. Richards went to Taiwan under the 
auspices of the International Farm Youth 
Exchange ( IFYE) which is affiliated with 
the 4-H Clubs. 

Mr. Richards told us that the average 
family in Free China has 15-30 members 
living in as few rooms as 3 or 4. The 
average acreage in the rural areas of 
Taiwan is 2)4 acres on which the main 
crop is rice. They also raise bananas, 
pineapple, sugar cane and tea. One of 
the problems the farmers face is the 5 
months of rain and 5 months of dry sea- 
son. During the rainy season it may rain 
every 2 hours for a while and then the 
sun comes out. 

The education in Free China is limited 
to 6 years for most children. To go on to 
higher education, tests must be passed. 
The main religion is Buddhism, and is 
part of the everyday life. 

Mr. Richards thought that he ac- 
complished much in showing the people 
of Free China how Americans really are, 

POULTRY CLUB 

R. Lichtenwalner *66 

The Poultry Club has been busy pre- 
paring and repairing the remnants of 
D.V.C's poultry industry for A-Day. 
Both the electric battery brooder and 
the incubator have been restored to ac- 
comodate A-Day projects. 

The newly elected officers im '65-'66 
are: 

President Henry McCarter '66 

Vice-President Richard Lichtt nwalner '66 
Secretary John Kimmett '67 

Treasurer William Litton '68 

A-Day Rep Richard Fisting '68 



ORNAMENTAL HORTICULTURE CLUB 



J. Hazelton '66 
On February 24, the Ornamental Hor- 
ticulture Club held its annual elections. 
The following are the results: 
President — Ben Rainear '66 
Vice President— Scott Mauger '66 
Secreton/— Chuck Ektrodt '66 
Treasurer — Brian Fischer *67 
Intramural Representative — 
Dick DeMott '66 
"A" Day Representative — 

Roy Van Teyens '67 
This group looks forward to building 
up the interest in the Club by encourag- 
ing members to participate regularly and 
by recruiting Orn. Hort. Sophomores and 
Freshmen who have never bothered to 
join. 

Om. Hort. held its annual banquet at 
the Plumsteadville Grange on March 10. 
In addition to the regular members, 
present were Mr. Blau, Mr. and Mrs. 
Rellis, and Mr. Grau. All enjoyed an ex- 
cellent and plentiful roast beef dinner. 
At its conclusion. President Ben Rainear 
thanked the guests and members and 
excused the group. No regular meeting 
was held. 

The Society is again looking forward 



to the annual field tr^ This year. Long- 
wood Gardens will be visited on April 
23. A former Aggie, Russ Hann, is now 
employed at Longwood and will ac- 
company the group on the tovu. All those 
interested who have not yet signed up 
for the trip can do so in room 217 Cooke 
Hll with Brian Fischer or Chuck Els- 
trodt. 

The Aggie Flower Judging Team will 
compete in the National Flower Judging 
Competition to be held at the University 
of West Virginia on April 9-10-11. Last 
year the college decided not to send a 
team, because the contest was held at 
the University of California, and the ad- 
ministration deemed the trip not feasible 
due, they said, to cost. Mr. Grau, the 
judging instructor, and the team are 
confident of handing top honors to the 
Green and Gold. 

The next issue will contain detailed 
information on the A-Day Flower Show. 
Also, individuals should be thinking of a 
semi-formal design for an area of ap- 
proximately 14'x28' to enter for yoiu- 
class in the garden retreat competition.

THE BAND-AID 

W. Woods '66 
B. Kirk '67 

Delaware Valley College is at a point 
in its development where it is important 
to have a certain rapport with the nearby 
communities. It has always been a goal of 
the students and administration to achieve 
this by creating bonds and ties with 
the surrounding area, but not until re- 
cently did the college realize that it has 
the best tool of all to achieve this rap- 
port. This tool is symbolized by a pro- 
gressive and outgoing attitude towards 
music and is represented by the Delaware 
Valley College Bands. The band is mak- 
ing itself felt through the area by its 
many engagements and this area is ever 
increasing in size. The band strives to 
represent the college at every major sports 
and extracurricular activity. It recognizes 
music as a driving force, which can spur 
a team to victory or add enjoyment to 
any affair. The band added its spirit 
to almost every football game last season, 
and sometimes stood virtually alone as 
the only representative of the college 
besides the football team. It marched and 
played through stirring and hard-fought 
victories as well as defeats. It is now 
prepared to honor and represent the 
college through half-time shows in the 
next football season. 

"Who are the people that make up the 
college band?" is a question that is often 
asked, but seldom answered. The band 
members making up the Delaware Val- 
ley College Band are people that enjoy 
playing music more than listening to it. 
The band consists of numerous instru- 



mentahsts who through one "marriage" 
combine the various musical effects into 
one large sound. 

Under the capable leadership of Mr. 
John Paul Dunphy, the band is literally 
"going places," and wherever the band 
goes the name of Delaware Valley Ccllege 
is foremost. The band has performed in 
several parades and participated in the 
band day ceremonies at the University 
of Pennsylvania. It has concerts scneduled 
for the spring including its annual A-Day 
concert, which will take place ;n Satur- 
day, May first at 3:00 p,m. Requests 
are coming in from various locales asking 
the band to perform, but perhaps the 
most important engagement, a first for 
the Delaware Valley CoUeue Band, will 
be a concert played at the New York 
World's Fair on April 24 in the Tiparillo 
Pavilion. The concert represents a year's 
hard work and sacrifice on the part of 
the band members and Mr. Dunphy. This 
willing self-sacrifice by the band members 
is overshadowed only by their willingness 
to play and uphold the name of the col- 
lege. The band believes that in the near 
future. Delaware Valley College is going 
to become more and more influential 
and well known in an ever widening 
area. The Delaware Valley College Band 
will be there. 

The newly elected officers are: 

President Henry McCarter '66 

Vice-President Walter Woods '66 

Secretary Terry Unseld 

Treasurer Martin Troutman '68 

A-Datj Representative Robert Kirk '67 
Director Mr. John Dunphy

THE FURROW 



CONTEMPORARY CLUB 

B. Gratz 66 

Founded and M-gani^ eight yean 
ago, the Contemporary cluh was designed 
to serve as a vector for any and all 
activiti^ of a contonporary interest. This 
allowed the club a broad scope of activ- 
ities which it could initiate. 

Throughout the years of its develop- 
ment ^ organization had passed r^tive- 
ly dormant and active ^ges, at times 
becoming a dwindling and almost non- 
existent Taction due to a lack of support 
and prq;>er leadership. Yet there was a 
definite need for this club and many 
students sought an inteUectiud and cul- 
tural outlet here at Delaware Valley Col- 
lege. In die past, the club has sponsored 
trips to dieatres and museums and has 
entertained such prominent speakers as 
Pearl S. Buck. 

But not until recently has the Cont«n- 
pwaiy Chib ever been so evident and 



active. Sptfked by renewed interest, new 
leadership, and strong student support, 
the club has excelWd its previously esti- 
mated pot^itial. 

So far this year the Contemporary Club 
has brought such speakers as John F. 
Corcoran, famous newscaster and war 
correspondent, and Reverend Adiku of 
Ghana. The club has S(Jd candy on and 
off campus in order to purchase chess 
sets ana records for the library and to 
help provide for some of the expenses 
for futiue speakers. It has also encouraged 
trira to theatres and concerts. 

Plresendy undo^vay is a clothes line 
exhibit scheduled for mid-April. Anyone 
may contribute woric such as; oils, pencil 
sketehes, water colors, pen and ink, char- 
coals, etc. The works will be displayed 
on Kingko Lane. For ''A"-Day, a puy, "A 
M«nory of Two Mondays" will be given 
plus the semi-finals of a chess tourna- 
ment already begim. In die near future. 



the Contemporary Club has scheduled 
several speakers both for assembly and 
evening periods. The club also has plans 
of carrying on informal debates on cur- 
rently controversial topics. 

As you can see, the Contemporary 
Club is actually a conglomeration of 
manv activities that in other colleges 
would be under their own auspices; such 
as: chess would be in its own club or 
probably its own team, d^ating would 
oe a society or again a team which also 
competes, dramatics woukl be its own 
department of the college, speakers and 
cultural activities would be promoted by 
the specific organizations (x clubs which 
are interested in those particular areas. 

In effect the Contemporary Club fur- 
nishes an education and an intellectual 
experience in fields which are not offer- 
ed in the Delaware Valley College curri- 
culum. Therefore, it serves two types 
of students, (1) those who have been 



exposed to this type of background and 
who wish to continue this type of outlet 
and (2) th<»e students wiio have never 
had this type of background and who 
are desirous of its exposure while at 
college. 

In actuality, it is open to anyone who 
seriously wishes to join. So, to prevent 
constantly reciting it whwiever I'm asked 
or when new members come to the meet- 
ing, we will state here and now the pur- 
pose of the Contemporary Club, as out- 
lined in the bylaws of its constitution: 
"The piupose of the organization is 
to promote cultural and intellectual 
enjoyment among the students of the 
college, through such activities as 
chess, dramatics, debating, and trips 
to theatres, museums, ana similar in- 
stitutions, and by bringing to the 
campus performers in ^e fine arts 
and speakers on topics of contem- 
porary interest."

DEUWARf VALLEY COUEGE OF SCIB4CE AND AORICUITURE 



Novombw 196S 



DVC FIRST AT SPRINGFIELD 



R. LlCHTENWALNEB 

The 1965 livestodc judging team 
of Delaware Valley CoUege won 
the hvestock judging contest at the 
Eastern States Exposition. The 
team, consisting of Lee Wagner, 
Dave Schultz, Wally Derstein, 
Ridiard Lichtenwalner, and 
Charles Cembe, beat Michigan 
State University by 17 points and 
Pennsylvania State University by 
49 points fen* the championship. 
This is the first time that Delaware 
Valley College has won the contest 
in the 13 years that we have at- 
tended it under Dr. Pelle. 

L^ Wagner led the Aggies by 
finishing 1st in Swine and first in 
sheep. This plus his 8th place fin- 
ish in beef earned him the honor of 
individual diampion of the 47 con- 
testants. Out of a possible 300, Lee 
scored 288 in Swine, 272 in sheep 
plus 272 in beef for an 832 total. 

Consistent Dave Sdiultz backed 
up Lee as the Aggies second man 
and wound up as 5th individual in 
the contest. Hidmrd Lichtenwalner, 
whom coach Darwin Boyd put on 
the first team over teammate Vin- 
cent Zaccheo because of his higher 
season scores, came through in ex- 
cellent manner. Lichty was second 
individual in the b^f division with 
a score of 281, missing the first 

ri honor by 1 point. This, plus 
otha scores, gave Lichty an 
overall score of 771 whidi put him 
in a tie for 8th place individually 
with teammate Wally Derstein and 
a University of Connecticut con- 
testant. Wally, who has shown 
great improvement and still is im- 
provin^y finished with scores of 270 
in becnr, 246 in swine and 255 in 
sheep fear his 771 total. Charlie 
Gemoe, the 5th man on the team, 
had a Inid day and a low score 
which is not indicative of his know- 
ledge. 

Although Dr. Pelle couldn't ac- 
company the team on this trip be- 
cause he is the department head and 
had to stay on campus for freshmen 
registration, his hand-picked re- 
placement Darwin Boyd, D.V.C. 
64', proved most capable. Dar- 
win instilled the pride to win and 
the confidence that they could win 
into the team. An addition, Darv, 
an aspiring politician, introduced 
the team to the governor's of 3 
states. He also formally acquainted 
D.V.C. with the owner of Ankony 
Farm, probably the best Angus 
farm in the country. 

That compiles the Delaware 
Valley College 1st team that chalk- 



ed up 3895 points for the victory. 
Officially: 

1. Delaware Valley College 3^5 

2. Michigan State U. I. 3878 

3. Penna. State U. I 3848 

4. Michigan State U. II 3792 

5. Conn. Univ. I 3683 

6. Penna. State II 3656 

7. Delaware Valley alt 3644 

8. Conn. Univ. II 3586 

9. New Hampshire U 3494 

The Delaware Valley College al- 
ternate team, which was an unoffi- 
cial team because of the two jun- 
iors George Coreless and Jon Slate, 
was seventh overall. This team, 
Ronald Funt distinguished himself 
by being fifth high of the Aggies. 
Ron was also individual champion 
in sheep, with a 281 which was 9 
points higher than Lee WagnCT's* 
score; however since Ron wasn't on 
the first team, all he receives for 
his efforts is satisfaction. The other 
alternates were Vincent Zaccl^o 
and Richard Koes. 

The statistics of the contest re- 
veal several interesting facts; (1) 
every member of the first team 
scored a perfect 50 on the Hamp- 
shire Ewe lamb class, (2) Every 
member save Wally Derstine, bust- 
ed the Dorset lamb class. It should 
be mentioned that there was not 
one correct score in that class. (3) 
The Aggies scored their lowest point 
total in the division they won— 
sheep. They scored 1243 points to 
be high team, while their 1363 
points put them second in beef by 
30 points. 

The team now continues prac- 
ticing over weekends for the Penn- 
sylvania Livestock Exposition Live- 
stock Judging Contest at Harris- 
burg on Nov. 11. This is followed 
by a contest on the 13th of No- 
vember at Timonium, Maryland. 
Following these comes the grand 
finale, the International Livestock 
Exposition at Chicago.

CONSERVATIVE 
CONVENTION 

BuRTiN Bobbins 

"We shall make converts day by 
day; we shall grow strong by calm- 
ness; we shall grow strong by the 
violence and injustices of our ad- 
versaries. And, unless truth be a 
mockery and justice a hollow lie, 
we shall be in a majority after a 
while . , . . the battle of freedom 
should be fought out on principle." 
—Abraham Lincoln, May 29, 1856 

The above lines well point out 
the underlying theme and purpose 
of the Congress of Conservatives 
which met in Chicago April 29- 
May 1. Conservative leaders from 
all over America met and drew up 
a statement of Conservative prin- 
ciples which will be the basis of 
a new Conservative party. 

Among the more well known 
Conservative leaders attending was 
Lester Maddox who spoke of the 
methods employed against him by 
the demonstrators under Com- 
munist direction and encourage- 
ment. He explained how "so called 
reverends'* and agitators had used 
his restaurant as a rest room and 
also spoke of other abuses by the 
F.B.L 

Sen. Edwin Walker spoke of 
President Johnson as a near dictator 
and warned against growing fed- 
eral power. Walker himself was 
almost victim of a bullet fired by 
Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, 
Tex. Walker also resigned from 
the ' Army after the Kennedy 
anti-anti-communist muzzling of 
the military resolution was adopted. 

Robert Welch, the leader of the 
John Birch Society, warned of 
growing Communist infiltration in 
the Civil Bights movement. 

Sponsoring this convention, which 
was attended by over 400, was Kent 
Coumey, the publisher of the "In- 
dependent American", a major 
newspaper. 

The new right wing party will 
hasten the destruction and death 
of the Republican party as Con- 
servatives will leave it, and the 
liberal vote will either spht or else 
go to the Democratic party.

commendation for permitting use 
of only half of the doorway whether

CLUB & CLASS ACTIVITIES 



CONTEMPORARY CLUB 
Joel Martin 

As part of the Contemporary 
Club's continued effort to promote 
cultural activiti^ on campus we 
presented a reading of the play "A 
Memory of Two Mondays" by Ar- 
thur MiUer last "A" Day. The mem- 
bCTs of the cast were extremely 
pleased to find a "packed house" in 
the big tent. The cast consisted of 
Barry Cratz, Toel N. Martin, Henry 
McCarter, John Friend, Don Abb, 
Vic Kalina, Norman Mnxedd and 
Dick Scott. The two girls' (mrts 
Yfcre read by Karen Stedman and 
Katfay Cardocki of Central Bucks 
High School. Mr. Forbes, the Club 
advisor, was narrator. Althoudi the 
play's location was not ideiQ, tiie 
word around campus was that the 
play had been a success. 

This year the Contemporary 
Club is to have a chess night eacn 
week that will be held in the Li- 
brary for those interested. There 
will be two chess tournaments; one 
this semester and one next semes- 
ter. Besides chess we plan on hav- 
ing speakers. Pearl S. Buck, the 
noted authors, will be here in 
November, and one of the assem- 
blies will be devoted to a Karate 
exhibition. There will be other 
speakers and other activities but 
these are still in the making. 

To find out more about this club 
and its activities listen for the an- 
nouncements of our regular meet- 
ings and attend them. All freshmen 
and upperclassmen are welcome 
to come! 



BUSINESS 
ADMINISTRATION 
Ronald G. Young 

On October 4, 1965, our Busi- 
ness Administration class of 19G9 
elected seven (7) students as the 
steering committee to lay the foun- 
dation for another major club on 
campus. The following are the 
names of the students elected to 
the steering conunittee. 

1. David McHollan 

2. Ronald G. Young 

3. Charles Rocconi 

4. Harold Brubaker 

5. James Smith 

6. Frank DeBeni 

7. Gregg Thompson 

The steering committee present- 
ed a constitution to the Student 
Council for their approval of our 
club. 

The class organized two intra- 
mural teams, which are volleyball 
and football. The volley-ball team 
has a perfect record of three (3) 
wins and no defeats. We played 
our first football game October 19, 
1965 and came out victorious by the 
score of 19-13. 



THE BAND PLAYS ON 

Walter Woods 

For many years the Delaware 
Valley College band has strived 
for excellence. This year is no ex- 
ception and, although all of the 
band's new instruments haven't ar- 
rived as of yet, the band plays on. 

It seems that the spirit of the 
band is about to reach a low point. 
Inspirational talks by the band di- 
rector are doing very little good, 
since the main problem lies with 
the students at Delaware Valley Col- 
lege. Every year the band depends 
upon the freshman class to rill in 
the ranks of those members that 
have left college. There is one 
thing that is hard to understand 
though; out of approximately 41 
freshmen that play instruments, 
only 10 have decided to come out 
for band. Undoubtedly I have put 
the blame on the freshman class, 
but freshman class refers to the 
freshmen classes of years before 
the class of 1969. In each class I 
will venture to say that there are 
at least 30 who have played instru- 
ments. 

Everyone who is in the band un- 
doubtedly has a fault of some type, 
but let me explain to you the type 
of person this is. 

On Oct. 16 the DVC football 
team played Albright College; 
since it was decided that the band 
wasn't to perform at half-time the 
band was to have its first weekend 
off since school started. Four days 
before the game the band was in- 
formed that it was to perform 6 
minutes on the field at Albright. 
There were 25 students who cancel- 
ed all kinds of plans in order to 
represent the school at the game. 
I can't help think that possibly 
these 25 students are the only ones 
who care about D.V.C. 

There is always the prevailing 
argument that, "Well, I don't play 
an instrument." If you can recall an 
announcement a few weeks ago 
asking for colorguard volunteers 
you will notice that the former ar- 
gument is outdated. Out of over 
700 students the number of replies 
to the band's help wanted call was 
nil. 

Even under these conditions the 
band members come to practice 
every Monday and Friday from 
4:30-6:30 and every Saturday the 
band plays on.

CIRCLE K CLUB NEWS DTA 



Jim Mobley 

The Circle K Club is the sole 
service club on Delaware Valley 
College's campus. The club is sup- 
ported by the Doylestown Kiwanis 
Club. 

The club's main objectives are to 
help serve the community and the 
campus. The Circle K has been ac- 
tive in the past in Doylestown, 
with fund drives for the Heart & 
Cancer Associations. It has helped 
the Kiwanis with their annual Pan- 
cake Breakfast and other projects. 

On Campus the Clubs main 
project is the Blood Bank program 
sponsored each fall with the co- 
ordination of Mr. Linta. The clubs' 
members also show prospective 
students and visitors around the 
campus. At our annual A-Day the 
club helps run an information booth 
to help strangers find their way 
around or to answer any questions 
they may have. 

There are a few fringe benefits 
of this club. You get to know other 
students from other circle K clubs 
and other colleges. You are able to 
meet professional men in a related 
field of your major and from time 
to time the club attends dinners 
and banquets sponsored by the Ki- 
wanis Club. 

This year the club is planning 
to enlarge its program along with 
its membership. As was mentioned 
earher in the article, this is the 
sole service club of our campus. 

It is here to serve the college and 
its students and depends upon the 
students to operate efficiently. Any- 
one seriously interested in joining 
the club or who has any ideas that 
will help the club or campus are 
asked to attend the next meeting. 
The time and place will be an- 
nounced later. 



Henry McCabter 



The service committee of DTA, 
the national agricultural honor fra- 
ternity, reported that they have ob- 
tained the administration's approv- 
al to initiate a scholarship fund for 
members planning to go on to grad- 
uate school. 

A raffle will be held on campus 
for a blazer, all proceeds of which 
will be put into the scholarship 
fund. We ask the student body's 
support of this worthwhile venture. 

Notice was made of the fact diat 
we are one of the largest chapters, 
if not the largest, in the country.

DAIRY SOCIETY 
Joel Martin 

Dr. J. Ellis Croshaw, the new 
chairman of the Dairy Dept., joins 
the D.V.C. faculty bringing a 
wealth of experience. Graduating

tomy at the University of Pennsyl- 
vania until Feb. 1965. 

Dr. Croshaw has been research- 
ing bovine leukemia for the past 
5 years and has made this one of 
his main occupations since Feb. 
1965. 

He lives with his wife between 
Paoli and West Chester, where he 
has a 90 head herd of registered 
Guernseys. His babbies include 
chess, bridge and reading; he also 
considers himself a "cow fancier."

CLUB & CLASS ACTIVITIES (cont^d) 



SOPHOMORE CLASS 
Walt Bobb 

The big vnard from the Sof^io- 
more Class this time is "Button 
Frosh" as they complete their three 
weeks of issuing customs to the 
new Freshmen Class. 

Dick Smith, class president, feels 
that on a whole customs ran very 
smoothly this year and was success- 
ful in accomplishing its task of 
acquainting the Frosh with our in- 
stitution. Also, he thinks it has 
helped to bring "some" of the 
Freshmen Class members together 
and inareases in them the "Aggie 
Spirit*. 

In general, customs operated this 
year about the same as in the past, 
with the Frosh required to wear tie, 
sign, and dink at all times, and to 
carry along with them matches and 
handbook when not in rooms. They 
were also responsible to light upper 
classmen cigarettes, answer the 
phone within three rings, keeping 
their rooms neat and clean, to know 
any information in the handbook, 
and to attend all home football 
games. 

The biggest change was the elim- 
ination of one week, cutting the 
amount to three weeks. This was 
done to relieve some of the drag 
we felt developed with the addi- 
tion of the f ourm week, and worked 
out very successfully we felt, 
especially fw the Freshmen. 

Dick would like to thank "All 
those class members who were con- 
sistent in maintaining the purpose 
of customs and upholding its 
ideals".

-"Fresh from the West" 

Last year the Horticulture so- 
ciety took its usual enjoyable field 
trip. Our destination was Belts- 
ville, Maryland, home of the United 
States Department of Agriculture 
Plant Industry Center. 

Our group left D.V.C. Friday, 
April 2, at 6 a.m. Accompanied by 
Dr. Blackman and Dr. Blumenfiela, 
our society arrived in Beltsville at 
9:45 A.M. Twenty-one men toured 
the many acres of greenhouses and 
laboratories, examining the latest 
experiments dealing with breeding, 
pathology, pest control, and phy- 
siology of all types of plants. Snort 
lectures were providea by the in- 
dividual doctors in their fields of 
work. A portion of their 10,000 
acres in the field was also toured. 
Lunch was provided in the center's 
cafeteria, compliments of the so- 
ciety. 

Upon the conclusion of our tour 
at 4 P.M., the group journeyed to 
Washington D.C., approximately 
15 miles from the center. Our place 
of destination was the Statler-Hil- 
ton, one of the many in the Hilton 
hotel chain; rooms were compli- 
ment of the society. Upon arriving 
at the h(rtel we imparted a fine meid 
at Stouffer's Restaurant, across the 
street from our hotel, for our ban- 
quet. 

Af t^ the meal the men were free 



to visit any places of interest to 
th«n. Some men visited the finer 
nightclubs, speakeasys etc., while 
others visited the capitol. White

the men ate in the coffee shop of 
the hotel. The group was then free 
to leave any time they wished.

POULTRY CLUB 

Ron AiTARiAN 

This year, the Poultry Club ac- 
tively participated in Homecoming. 
We nad an interesting float that in- 
cluded a towering microscope, a 
rather large egg, and an assortment 
of live chickens. We would like to 
take this opportunity to thank the 
many perM)ns who helped make 
our float a success. We would also 
like to warn the major clubs that 
we are moving like wild-fire up 
the ranks, right to the TOP! Our 
club expresses its thanks to Charles 
Suloff for announcing our club, 
during the Homecoming game, as 
a major club. Charlie, you re about 
eleven months premature! You let 
the cat out of the bag! 1 1 

For our next meeting, November 
2, we have scheduled a speaker who 
will enlighten us on Food Nutrition. 
We expect this to be a most inform- 
ative lecture. Refreshments will be 
served at the close of the talk. 

Our club has access to two in- 
cubators. We have made plans to 
incubate eggs for the purposes of 
experimentation and for an assort- 
ment of poultry for A-Day 1966. 
We expect to exhibit chicks in the 
process of hatching in our tent dur- 
ing A-Day. 

We have discussed the idea of 
presenting various experimental 
and show breeds of poultry as a 
gift to the college. 

Our meetings are held in the 
Poultry Classroom every other 
Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. We cordially 
invite you to attend. 



BIGGEST TURNOUT 
EVER 

Joseph RoTHscmuD 

Wednesday night, September 29, 
was the first meeting of the Orna- 
mental Horticulture Club. This 
assemblage had its biggest fresh- 
man turnout. The veteran club 
members were astounded at how 
many freshmen were there and may 
I include that I hope the support 
keeps up. 

The meeting was to take place in 
Segal Hall, but due to confusion 
of scheduling the meeting of the 
group ending up in Segal Hall 



where there was standii^ room 
only. The meeting was to be started 
at 8:30 p.m., but the treasurer 
hadn't shown up at that time and 
we needed his estimated assump- 
tion, therefore, everyone waited 
patiently. 

The meeting finally got und^- 
way and the first thing on the itin- 
erarv was the introduction of the 
freshmen. This had to be voted on 
and it was (Missed, but there still 
were some nays. 

We were all relieved to know 
that we are going to have to Vfotk 
very hard ^ that we will be able 
to pay for the % page advertisement 
in the yearbook. 

Intramurals w^e the next to be 
added to the aggenda. Hiere will 
be bowling, football, and volley- 
ball teams. Dues have to be paid 
before anyone can (Muticipate in 
any of these sports. This is a good 
way to get the money, because who 
wants to study when there is somC' 
thing more exciting. Who kiK)ws, 
one of the boys may meet his 
dreamboat at the bowling alley 
making a strike. 

The club intends having prom- 
inent speakers come to our gath* 
erings and talk to us on different 
aspects of Om. Hort. With the 
great turnout that we got at our 
first meeting, we should make a 
good audiance. All others who may 
be interested in learning about Om. 
Hort. are welcome to come. There 
will also be a trip and a l^nquet in 
the course of the year. 

"A* day takes a lot of prepara- 
tion so the committ^ for this en- 
joyable task was set up with Roy 
Van Teyens as chairman. 

Homecoming was also discussed 
with major emphasis placed on the 
float and selling of corsages. The 
chairmen of these conmiittees are 
Jim Kerr as head of the float com- 
mittee and Mike Barrv in charge 
of flower sales. The cIud hopes that 
both of these undertakings will be 
successful. 

A thought to ponder— You too 
can build better benches. 



PARADE THROUGH 
DOYLESTOWN 

B. ROBBINS 

On the eve of the last day of 
hrosh customs, the spirit of '69 snarl- 
ed Doylestown traffic ioar miles as 
the D.V.C. marching band, faculty 
members, officials, and cheering 
students paraded in the rain hrom 
the main campus to Doylestown 
and back. Following the parade, a 
pep rally was held in which Presi- 
dent Work, Coach Graver, Mr. Lin- 
ta, and others spoke. The frosh 
bonfire followed. Thfe ceremonies 
were held the evening before the 
Crove City game and showed to all 
looking on that the students of 
D.V.C. were really quite alive in- 
deed and active in suppcnrting their 
team.

cu»e ball game by the sa>re (A 6-0. 
After a scoreless tie at the half, 
with both teams mounting dFfen- 
sive drives that di^ before they 
reached the goal line, Lycoming 
finally hit the score board at the 
end of the third quarter with a six- 
teen yard slant off right tackle. The 
Aggies came back hard in the 
fourth quarter and twice thrust 
d^p into tl^ Warrior's territory be- 
fore being stopped. The Aggie of- 
fense was led by freshman half- 
back Harry Capozzoli, who gained 
53 yards in 8 carries, ai^ halfback 
Joseph Franchella, a sophomore, 
who gained 73 yards in 15 carries. 
Defensl^y, the Aogies were led 
by sophomore linebacker Dennis 
£k>browolski and sophcnnore cen- 
ter Vince Ficca. 

In the Aggies' lK)me opener 
against Moravian College, they 
dropped their second game of the 
year by the score of 27-0. The 
Aggies were plagued by their own 
fumbles and mistakes offensively 
and were unable to secure field 
positions throughout the afternoon. 
Hie Aggies defense looked good at 
times although bogged deep in 
their own territoir most of the day. 
Joseph Franchella again led all 
rushers with 47 yards in 13 carries. 

The Aggies traveled to Haver- 
ford College to pidc up their first 
win of the year against the Middle 
Atlantic Ck)nference Fords. The 
Aggies fell behind quickly in the 
first period on two quick scor^ by 
Havmord. Down lz-0, the Aggies 
came back in the second periodand 
drove 72 yards in 15 plays for the 
initial touchdown. In tne third per- 
iod they added a 2 point safety 
when Warren Hitz, a freshman, 
tackled the Haverford punter in 
the end zone. Later in the same 
period, the Aggies mounted a game 
winning sixty-three yard march in

14 plays to score the winning 
touchdown. Richard Kutzavitch, a 
freshman fullback, rushed fw 81 
yards in 8 carri^ while Franchella 
contributed 91 in 13 carries. Fre^ 
man quarterback Frank Briggs 
completed 8 of 16 passes for llo 
yards as the Aggies drove to a new 
school total of^nsive record of 343 
yards in one game. 

The Aggies were host to Grove 
City College ica Homecoming in 
the foiuth ball game of the year. 
Grove City scored f ii^ in Uie even- 
ing period with an 80 yard (frive 
that put them ahead 7-0. The score 
was still 7-0 late in the third quar- 
ter with both teams having cJfen- 
sive drives repulsed by good defen- 
sive stands. Late in the tfiird quar- 
ta*, Grove City hit the score board 
again with a 47 yard drive to go 
ahead 14-0. The Aggies came back 
quickly with the ensuing kick-off 
and drove 70 yards in 16 plays for 
a score. The PAT was no good and 
Grove City led 14-6. Grove City 
recovered an attempted on side 
kick and drove 41 yards for a 
touchdown to make the final score 
20-6. Captain Bill Cotteell, senior 
center, led the Aggie offensive 
charge with Hnebaders Ted Cot- 
trell and Dennis Ddbrowolski lead- 
ing the defense. 

Delaware Valley College travel- 
ed to Reading for their fifth ball 
game of die year in the Annual 
Pretzel Bowl against host Allnright 
College. The Aggies met a strong 
Albright team and oune out on the 
short end of a 30-0 score against 
the fired up Lions. The Aggies ex- 
hibited a strong ground defense 
led by freshmen Robert Smith and 
John Duffy. The Shrine game was 
the first bowl game by me Aggies, 
and proved an overwhelming finan- 
cial success, with the profits going 
to the Philadelphia Shrine Hospi- 
tal, located on tne Roosevelt Boule- 
vard in N. E. Phila. 

In the sixth ball game of the 
year Delaware Valley lost a tough, 
hard-hitting football game to Drex- 
el Institute of Tedmobgy by tl^ 
score of 29-0. The Aggies defense 
limited Drexel to 140 yards on the 
ground, 30 in the second half, but 
diey were unable to mount much 
offense and gave up tl^ ball re- 
peatedly deep in their own terri- 
t(»ry. £>efense halfbacks, freshman 
Stan Sitarski, and junior Dave Spin- 
ella, led the d^ensive effort 

Joe Franchella l^ds the Aggie

CROSS COUNTRY 
Dave Williams 

The Delaware Valley College 
cross country team is oJFf to another 
fine start, winning three of their first 
six contests. The Aggies opened 
their season with a triangular meet 
at Temple University. They were 
beaten by a score of 17-41 by Tem- 
ple, but they bounced back to get 
a shut out victory over Phila. Tex- 
tile, 15-50. Junior Ira Walker and 
freshman Lee Latchau paced the 
Aggies. They were followed home 
by Wayne Oppenheimer, Jim 
Cianaris, and Dick Thalber. 

The Del. Val harriers traveled to 
King's College and lost a close con- 
test oy a score of 24-31. Ira Walker 
and Lee Latchau again paced the 
Aggies. The lose may be contri- 
buted to two factors, first lack of 
experience and second, lack of 
depth. The Aggies then faced Leb- 
anon Valley and again another 
close contest 21)i-23)i. This meet 
made the Aggies lack of depth ap- 
parent. 

The Aggies brightest hour came 
Homecoming Day with a 15-48 
shutout win over Fairleigh Dickin- 
son. The Aggies were led by Wayne 
Oppenheimer, Ira Walker, and Lee 
Latchau. all three tying for first 
place. Tney were followed home by 
Dave Scovell and Jim Cianaris. 

The Aggies then came back a 
week later to put two victories in a 
row with a big win over Albright 
17-45. The Aggies had five men 
among the top six finishers. 

The Delaware Valley cross-coun- 
try team is young and lacks experi- 
ence but has the talent to win its 
share of meets. This is a rebuilding 
year at Delaware Valley College, 
due to the loss of Lou Coppens 
and Jim Murphy. Only one of 
Delaware Valley's first six men is 
a senior, thus pointing to a champ- 
ionship team next year. 



WRESTLING 

L. Douglas 

The Delaware Valley Wrestling 
team is preparing for a tough nine 
match schedule including tradi- 
tional powerhouses Wilkes College 
and Lycoming College. 

The Aggies will be led by re- 
tiuning lettermen Bruce Cover at 
177 lbs.; John Hawk at 167 lbs.; 
Captain Charles Suloff at 147 lbs. 
and Robert Felton at 130 lbs. Squad 
man Kermit Moyer, is expected 
to fill the vacant 123 lb. slot while 
freshman Joe Yerg, Pennsylvania 
High School 191 lb. champion last 
year, is expected to fill the heavy- 
weight berth. 

The Aggies appear stronger this 
year than last with more experi- 
enced personnel at each weight 
class. It the freshmen can fill the 
holes in the lineup and the letter- 
men have gained sufficient experi- 
ence, the team under the guidance 
of Coach Bill Craver should be able 
to improve last season's 2-6 record.

BASKETBALL 

L. Douglas 

The Delaware Valley College 
basketball team under the guidance 
of Allen Hartley has been working 
out in preparation for their opening 
game with Ursinus College on De- 
cember 1. Coach Hartley has four 
lettermen returning from the team 
that finished third last season in the 
Delaware Valley Conference. 
Coach Hartley will be seeking to 
improve last year's 9-11 r^x)rd with 
the aid of these four lettermen and 
some outstanding freshmen pros- 
pects. 

Lettermen forward Tom Lewis, 
last year's leading scorer, and 
Glenn Jerrell, last year's second 
leading rebounder returning at the 
other forward slot, will be bade 
John Cunningham and Ron Kow- 
alik give the Aggies two returning 
lettermen at guard. At this writing, 
Bill Eisel, a 6'5''freshman from 
Easton, is leading the battle for 
the center slot. Competition for a 
starting birth is expected from Mars 
Seiferth, a 5'10'' guard from Lafay- 
ette Hill, Pa. and Richard Keller- 
man, freshman forward from Carl- 
stadt, N. J. 

The team looks improved ov^ 
last year with the addition of Eisel 
at Center and ^uld be stronger 
defensively and in the rebounding 
department. Seiferth, Kellerman, 
and Ed Furman, a sophomore 
squadman, give the Aggies better 
depth this year.

INSECT COLLECTION 
by B. Bobbins 

"If our present growth curve 
continues, in five years our collec- 
tion will be the fifth largest in the 
state." So states Dr. EUery French, 
who is presently in charge of the 
Delaware Valley College insect col- 
lection. 

This fact appears surprising con- 
sidering that two years ago when 
Dr. French first came to D. V. C. 
there was no insect collection. At 
that time. Dr. French felt it was 
necessary to establish a collection 
for local pest identification and for 
classroom and teaching purposes. 

To start the collection, Dr. 
French first contacted the Philadel- 
phia Academy of Science for some 
of their duplicates which could be 
given to the college. Added to this 
base are those insects which are 
donated to the college by students 
who have completed their Ento- 
mology course and have no further 
use for their collection. 

As of the present, the number 
of insects in the college collection 
stands at 10,000, but this number 
is expected to grow to 50,000 in- 
sects. The goal is not to establish 
a museum collection of national 
and international species bu«. rather 
a modest working collection of the 
(Continued on ]Hige 4, col. 4) 



The Highwaymen, today con- 
sidered by the "experts" and fans 
around the world to be perhaps 
the most energetically original and 
technically polished "folk group" 
in the music business, will make 
their appearance at Delaware Val- 
ley College March 12, 1966, at 
8:30 P.M. as the 1966 Sophomore 
Concert gets under way. 

The group, known for the famous 
recording of "Michael Bow the 
Boat Ashore," will provide a two- 
hour concert in a wide range of 
vocal interpretation with a variety 
of precise instrumental techniques 
and a highly original humorous 
outlook toward their musical con- 
temporaries. 

Using a score of musical instru- 
ments coupled with a skill in lan- 
guages and dialects of the people 
of the world, they will bring both 
variety and international sophistica- 
tion to their program. 

Currently one of the most sought- 
after singing ensembles in the en- 
tertainment business, the group 
now consists of Alan Scha£F, Benny 
Temple, Mose Henry, and Boy 
Connors. These four young men 
made their own style of folk music 
internationally famous, and base 
their success on their ability to 
communicate an enthusiasm for the 
songs of the world in such highly 
entertaining arrangements. The 
class is therefore sure that all who 
attend will find the concert deeply 
entertaining and richly rewarding.

LOOKING AT THE BAND '67 NEWS 



i 



by John Ficuozzi 

Most of you have scoHed at the 
D. V. C. Band. This year you can 
start being proud of it. Now that 
Customs are over and the school 
has lost its cheering section, it must 
rely primarily on the band to re- 
place the vociferous spirit of the 
Freshmen. 

When you stop and think, you 
will realize that our band does more 
to inspire school spirit than any 
other campus group. The sounds of 
our Alma Mater ringing out on a 
crispy morning gives a feehng in- 
side which cannot be matched by 
a hundred pep talks. 

Everyone has noticed the sad 
state of the school-provided instru- 
ments, especially the tubas and 
drums. This is not because of care- 
less musicians, for these and several 
other instruments are as much as 
forty years old. The last time the 
school was able to buy new instru- 
ments before this year was about 
thirteen years ago. 

This year things are different. 
The band has received much need- 
ed funds, and is proceeding to re- 
place the dilapidated equipment. 
TTiey have already received a brand 
new baritone, and during the 
course of the year they will get 
two new sousaphones, several snare 
drums, one bass, two more bari- 
tones, a set of cymbals, and a set 
of bells. The old instruments will 
be retained for spare parts if the 
need arises. 

You will notice the big change 
by the happy expressions and 
boosted morale of our musicians- 
give them your support, too, and 
youll never see a happier bunch 
of guys. After all, that's what 
they're there for. 



THE SCIENCE SOCIETY 

Don Gensemer 

The annual picnic of the Science 
Society held in October was a great 
success this year, and in connection 
with the successes of the various in- 
tramural teams, seems to indicate a 
good year for the Society. 

A field trip to the Smithsonian 
Institute has been planned for next 
semester, and will prove of great 
interest to both Biology and Chem- 
istry majors. The Science Society, 
in order to serve the students bet- 
ter, has taken over the sale of lab 
aprons and lab coats, and informa- 
tion will soon be available on these 
items.

Members of the class of '67 are 
encouraged to utilize the Letters to 
the Editor column in this paper. 
Many people on this campus spend 
a great amount of time complaining 
about various things but do not take 
the small amount of time required 
to write sudi a lettw. Anyone who 
is not willing to do something to 
correct a condition has no right to 
complain about it. Complimentary 
letters also may be submitted. The 
Letters to the Editor column could 
become a very interesting, contro- 
versial means oy which any student 
may make known his opinions. We 
looK to the class of '67 for leader- 
ship in this endeavor as in others 
in the past. 

There is often talk among class- 
mates concerning the amount of 
people in the class who have left 
school or transferred in or out. 
Thanks to Mr. Larsson, your class 
reporter was able to obtain some 
statistics concerning class member- 
ship. 149 Freshmen registered in 
September of 1963. 12 transferred 
out, 11 are now in the class of '68, 
and 30 have been dropped for aca- 
demic reasons or have withdrawn 
for other reasons. 

Thus, if you are a junior and 
registered as frosh in '63 you are 
one of the surviving 65 percent. 
There have been 33 transfers reg- 
istered with the class. Ten students 
are registered with the class of 
'66 who will graduate with the 
class of '67. No class member has 
been drafted while he was a stu- 
dent. No one in the class has died. 
The class of '67's membership in 
the various majors is as follows: 
Ornamental Horticulture, 27; Ani- 
mal Husbandry, 26; Biology, 22; 
Dairy Husbanchy, 19; Horticulture, 
15; Agronomy, 9; Chemistry, 7; 
Food Industry, 7; Business Admin- 
istration, 0. 

Our class has had a lower per- 
centage of students transfer out 
compared to previous classes. The 
percentage of agricultural majors 
has been decreasing slightly as 
compared to non-agricultural ma- 
jors. 

Any member of the Junior Class 
who would like to contact the class 
as a whole may do so through this 
column. Written announcements 
may be turned in at room 209, 
Work Hall. 



THE ORNAMENTAL 
HORTICULTURE CLUB 

Joseph Rothschild 

Homecoming was a big day for 
the Om. Hort. Club because the 
club came in first in the float con- 
test. At this time the club would 
hke to acknowledge its thanks to 
all those who helped in construct- 
ing the float, especially those fresh- 
men who were willing to give up 
pulling weeds during freshman 
customs. 

Also, for Homecoming the club 
made mums for the dance. The 
student body took great advantage 
of this opportunity as was proven 
by the great success of the sales. 

The club trip for this year has 
not been decided on but Ed Toth 
and Gary Rosenblatt volunteered 
to head the committee. The ban- 
quet was also brought up and Tom 
Grygo volunteered for this job. 

To make our meetings educa- 
tional we ask people to come to 
speak to us concerning subjects on 
Om. Hort. A few weeks ago we had 
Joachim Tourbies speak to us on 
many of the historical sights in 
Doylestown. Mr. Tourbies showed 
slides as he talked. Many of the 
club members were surprised by 
many of the objects they had al- 
ways seen, but felt were of no sig- 
nificance. The club members were 
also told that these pictiu-es were 
taken for a reason. The borough of 
Doylestown has a committee which 
investigates all historical places 
that are in question of being sold 
or of being torn down. This com- 
mittee is trying to preserve as much 
of the history of the town as pos- 
sible. Mr. Blau, our adviser, who 
is also on this committee, gave us 
first hand information on what the 
committee is doing. 

It was reported that the club has 
done well so far in the sports in- 
tramurals. The football team had a 
6-1 record which put it into second 
place. The club expects big things 
out of its members this year, so all 
are trying their best to keep up this 
expectation.

INTEGRITY 



CIRCLE K CLUB 

by RicHABD Becker 

"In our free society, the willing- 
ness of the individual to voluntarily 
meet the needs of society provides 
a direct index to the strength and 
extent of its freedom; to encourage 
men to meet the needs of their so- 
ciety by themselves, freely and vol- 
untarily, is one of the primary pur- 
poses of Circle K. Such needs of 
our society are many and will not 
be met by one or one hundred or- 

f;anizations in one year or in one 
ifetime. But, we are able to begin. 
We are able to examine our en- 
vironment and resolve to attempt 
to correct those areas where we see 
a need for improvement." 

This then is Circle K; an organi- 
zation with a lot of potential on this 
campus. Why not come to one of 
its meetings. The club meets every 
first and third Monday of eacn 
month (unless otherwise posted). 




SOPHOMORE 
CLASS NEWS 



It is lights on and curtain going 
up as the Sophomore class begins 
work on their 1966 project, "The 
Sophomore Concert." 

This year's program, scheduled 
for March 12, 1966, at 8:30 p.m., 
has taken on a new modem look 
as it turns away from the big band 
sound to the sleeker, smoother hnes 
of folk, and present to the student 
body "The Highwaymen." This 
group, consisting of four young 
men, has contributed greatly to the 
folk field ever since their largest 
gift of "Michael," and are well 
noted for their college appearances 
at some of the largest universities 
and colleges in this country. 

The class feels by making this 
switch that they will be able to 
draw from the larger young pop- 
ulous of the community and college 
and therefore inarease attendance. 

Tickets will go on sale as soon as 
students arrive back from Christ- 
mas vacation. The class suggests 
that the student body start planning 
now and purchase their tickets at 
an early date so they are not left 
out on the finest program ever to 
come to our campus.

TO THE EDITOR 

Americans like to think of Amer- 
ica as the land of opportunity, and 
so it is, but now even more so for 
those citizens of other nations. The 
United States has a new immigra- 
tion law, but these people could 
care less about red tape and are 
making wholesale exoduses. Life- 
time, expense paid vacations may 
as well be advertised by the coun- 
try, for who would think of sending 
back a poor refugee from com- 
munism? 

The Hungarians, as a prime ex- 
ample of the legitimate "refugee" 
problem, were brought over by the 
government, their numbers limited, 
though some were interned for a 
short period at Camp Kilmer, New 
Jersey, and eventually all were ab- 
sorbed quietly into the population. 

A common communist tactic is 
the human wave assault, if one 
cares to read about the Viet Cong 
or recall Korea. Miami is exper- 
iencing yet another human wave, 
to a degree not unwelcome, but 
still unexpected and overwhelm- 
ing. If one cares to sCTape away 
the thin cover of some of these 
people, political refugees turn polit- 
ical opportunists. The Federal 
Government, in an attempt to catch 
its breath, is shipping Cubans north 
in its eflFort to absorb these free- 
booters and still making no at- 
tempt to stem the flow (public 
opinion will win out). Approxi- 
mately 50% of these refugees will 
be dispersed throughout the New 
York metropolitan area where near- 
ly 100,000 have been placed. At 
least 200,000 Cubans have been 
processed into this country in the 
Castro years but this number may 
double in the next year or two. 
Three denominational organiza- 
tions, and one non sectarian are 
helping the U.S. Government to 
!M)me extent, as they have in the 
past, but even these good people 
may not be able to take the pres- 
sure off the government. 

TTie main objection is to the fact 
that most of these people will take 
jobs in areas where unemployment 
is already high. The people in need 
of jobs are citizens from our poorer 
factions, but none the less citizens. 
If the country can't be rid of the 
Cuban menace (the majority have 
IK) intention of returning even if 
Castro is removed ) the government 
could send them to areas in need of 
labor of alkclasses— it's still America 
whether in Maine, New Mexico or 
New York. 

The stresses on the labor front, 
civil rights and the particular prob- 
lems of the southern negro may 
culminate after the Cuban immi- 
grations increase into riots and 
civil strife the likes of which we 
have yet to see. 

Any responsible reply by way of 
comments will be welcomed in this 
column.

D. V. C MIXERS 

So far this school year there were 
two mixers at Delaware Valley. 
They were held in Lask^ Hall in 
the dining hall area. There were 
very good crowds at both of these 
mixers. 

There were only a few gripes 
about either of the mixers but these 
were offset by the praises. The 
main complaint was that it was too 
hot in the hall to be comfortable. 
Another complaint was about hav- 
ing only one band and there being 
nothing to do while the band took 
a break. The last complaint that I 
received was that there were not 
enough refreshments, especially 
soda. 

The one good change from the 
first mixer to the second was the 
shifting of the band from the front 
of the room to the rear thereby re- 
moving most of the crowd from the 
main doorway. 

There have been no trouble mak- 
ers at either mixer and only a 
couple of townies who did not 
cause any trouble. 

At the next mixer there should 
be provisions made for entertain- 
ment during the band breaks, prob- 
ably records. Also more refresh- 
ments should be on hand for the 
next mixer. 

Over all, the mixers have been 
fairly successful and everybody 
who has attended them has had a 
smashing good time. 

The coming mixers are on De- 
cember 10, February 4 and 25, and 
will be featuring the "Royal Cata- 
linas"* at both February mixers.

FRIENDLY LETTER 
TO THE EDITOR 

Editor: 

May I compliment you on a 
good paper and turge you to keep 
up the good work. 

I would like to conmient on the 
cafeteria, as it s^ns to be a sore 
point in the mind of some of the 
students here. There is room for 
improvement in this area as there 
is in any area, and I am sure if the 
proper authorities are notified the 
situation will be improved with due 
haste. 

There seems to be a problem 
with the sophomores concerning 
grades this semester. If any of the 
other classes have any suggestions 
as to how the sophs might improve 
their grades, this information would 
be greatly appreciated. 

Another subject on campus which 
few people seem to know about is 
the senior seminar pro-am. This 
is an hour-long prepared talk re- 
quired of all seniors in biology and 
chemistry for one credit. The Thurs- 
day and Friday afternoon presen- 
tations are open to the public and 
can be informative in two ways: 
as a source of information and as 
an indication of what will be ex- 
pected of the underclassmen when 
they become seniors. 

Thank you and once again my 
compliments. 

Sincerely, 

Don Gensemer, Bio., '68 



OUR PARKING 
PROBLEM 

Conrad Weiser 

By the time you read this articU 
the parking problem should be 
solved and everyone should have a 
parking place, because by that time 
the new parking lot will be in use. 

TTie parking problem was never 
as bad as everyone made it out to 
be. The old parking lot was never 
full only because everyone wanted 
to park behind their donn since it 
was much closer. The previous year 
manv people did not want to park 
in tne parking lot because tnere 
was a good bit of gas being stolen, 
but this problem has been pretty 
well solved by the addition of lights 
to the parking lot. With the old lot 
plus the new parking lot, which 
holds about 80 to 90 cars, there 
should be ample space for every- 
one. The only real problem that 
now exists is that the new parking 
lot is too far from the dorms. 

If all the student drivers park in 
the available space instead of wher- 
ever their heart's desire, there 
should be peace on earth at last.

POULTRY CLUB 

A. Ronald Attabian 

The Poultry Club is planning its 
first field trip for sometime in De- 
cember. We are eoing to a hatchery 
and farm located in Bucks Co., Pa. 
There, we will see the steps taken 
in preparing chickens for market. 
TTiere will be a tour throughout 
die buildings and we will be snown 
how the birds are slaughtered, 
plucked, and emptied of their "in- 
nerds". This should prove to be a 
very educational field trip. It can 
be VCTV beneficial to all Ag. stu- 
dents. Men in all fields of agricul- 
ture should have some knowledge 
of poultry because they will, at 
various times in their professions, 
be connected with the poultry in- 
dustry and a little knowledge will 
prove to be very profitable. 

The poultry industry is the larg- 
est industry in the United States. 
Unfortunately, the business is slow- 
ly moving westward. However, 
there are still a few of us laggers 
remaining behind to remind you 
all of what a chicken looks like . . .

DEBATE: 65-66 

RichabdFunt 

Resolved: Should Delaware Val- 
ley CoUege have a debating team 
solely for the purpose of debating 
With others colleges of the nation? 

This question was debated 
among many persons in the col- 
lege and the administration. The 
Contemporary Club started debat- 
ing with just a few interested stu- 
dents who liked what they were 
doing. When the administration de- 
cided to purchase books and sup- 
port a team with funds, a unique 
and truly challenging activity was 
bom. 

Under the direction of Mr. Brin- 
ker, our public speaking teacher 
(?-Professor), the debating team 
started to organize. With the help 
of Barry Gratz "66" and Harold 
Brubaker "GQ" who helped to con- 
tact interested students, a group 
of nine enthusiastic students met 
on November 16th. Time was not 
wasted for the rules and regulations 
were discussed on Thursday No- 
vember 18th. A practice debate 
among the team was held as soon 
as the team came back from the 
Thanksgiving vacation. 

The debate topic of discussion 
for the year 1965-1966 which is for 
all Intercollegiate debates is; Re- 
solved: That law enforcement 
agencies in the United States 
should be given greater freedom 
in the investigation and prosecution 
of crime. It may a>me as a sur- 
prise to many people, but each year 
one topic is cnosen for all official 
Intercollegiate debates. The reason 
for having onlv one topic is that it 
enables all wno are concerned to 
explore a given topic to its maxi- 
mum limit. 

This is the year fw organiza- 
tion for the debating team. In the 



TO THE SENIOR CLASS AGGIES LOSE FIRST 
OF 1966 TWO IN B-BALL 



This year is the culmination of 
four years of financial and mental 
stress and strain. During the past 
years, our class has faced many 
problems and has obtaii^d varying 
degrees of success. Currently, our 
class is facing the two major activi- 
ties facing anv senior class, the 
yearbook and tne class prom. 

The yearbook, of course, is our 
greatest financial endeavor and of 
all our class activities demands the 
most response and active partici- 
pation by the seniors. Currently, 
the yearbook is in dire need of 
senior help. Perhaps some seniors 
do not see the necessity or the vital 
aspect of the yearbook. 

This year our prom is expected 
to cost over eight thousand dollars. 

You as a senior have been pay- 
ing six dollars a semester dues, and 
now you are faced with an addi- 
tional burden of buying prom bids 
at an approximate cost of 30 dollars 
a couple. Why is this additional 
cost being levied? Simply because 
you have not been selling adver- 
tisements for oiif yearbook. There 
are many costs which arise for each 
individual planning on attending a 
prom. Examples of these costs are; 
flowers, tuxedo, gas, and food and 
drink. 

With senior support, our year- 
book can be a financial success 
and this success will mean that 
each senior planning on attending 
the prom will be faced with a 
smaller bill if any bill at all. Now 
is the time for the senior class of 
1966 to unite and work together 
for the benefit of all. 

Tom Speakman 



At this writing it's too early to 
make many predictions and it's just 
as well. Our first game, against 
Ursinus was bad, but not too bad 
considering the mere eight point 
diflFerence in scores. The low scor- 
ing of Ursinus 53 over D.V.C.'s 45 
should indicate some of the action 
that went on. 

The second game, against Drexel 
makes it seem as though we were 
smeared, but just look at the diflFer- 
ences between D.V.C. and the 
somewhat victorious Drexel squad. 
Support and morale have a little to 
do with the way a team performs. 
There were certainly no more than 
a dozen non-participant Aggies 
there to dieer me team on to vic- 



tory, then the suitcase toters wonder 
wnat happened. 

Up and coming on the varsity 
squad is Bill Eisel, top dog for now 
anyway, but other Aggies with good 
records are Ed Furman, Mars 
Seiferth, and John Cunningham.

GRAD SCHOOL REPORT INSECTS 



near future plans are being made 
to attend a live Intercollegiate de- 
bate at an area college. Although 
the team may engage in a debate 
this spring, The Delaware Valley 
College Team will be entering ac- 
tive Intercollegiate debating next 
fall. 

We have no limit in the number 
of people who may want to be a 
part of the team. If there are any in- 
terested students, they may contact 
any of the following members of 
the Debating team: Henry McCar- 
ter, Richard Funt, Harold Bruba- 
ker, Bill Edmonds, Leroy Bull, and 
Ian Carkhuff. 



Prospective students are told 
much about the success of Dela- 
ware Valley graduates. Although 
the statistics are impressive, noth- 
ing is so indicative of this success 
as the letters received from alumni 
who are attending other colleges. 
Don Day, who is presently engaged 
in a U. S. Dept. of Agriculture 
project on the re-evaluation of the 
system of grading pork carcasses, 
and Chuck Wina, who is presently 
studying for his Ph.D. in Physiology 
at Dartmouth, both agree that the 
education they received at Dela- 
ware Valley College was more than 
adequate to meet the requirements 
and competition of graduate school. 

As Day put it, in a recent letter 
to Dr. Tibor Pelle, "I was pleased to 
find that my undergraduate back- 
ground is as good or better than 

any of the other boys in the de- 
partment. I've had more practical 
experience in each course, and 
more English, Math and Chemistry 
than a great many other beginning 
graduate students in Agriculture.* 

Both Wina and Day lauded the 
personal emphasis of Del.Val. edu- 
cation. It is this emphasis which is 
the cornerstone of the college's 
philosophy. With D.V.C.'s policy of 
"Expansion not Explosion", it is 
certain that the college will be 
preparing more students at least 
as well, and probably better than 
ever beiFore.

Bucks County and Pennsylvania 
species. 

Says Dr. French: "we do not buy 
insects on the open market because 
such collections are generally not 
sold and do not have a local signifi- 
cance." 

Some of the problems that face 
the growth of the collection are the 
requisition money for cabinets and 
for student's time to spend on the 
collection, and proper space for 
storing the collection. 

These problems are almost uni- 
versal with insect collecting and 
despite them the Delaware Valley 
College insect coll«;tion should 
grow and mature to play an import- 
ant role in local insect control and 
identification.

BASKETBALL PREVIEW 

by Howard Reed Heritage 

Delaware Valley sports have 
many bright spots in the future, 
and one of the brightest is its bas- 
ketball team. This year's squad of 
twenty-three has only two Juniors 
and no Seniors, thus the majority 
of tl^ team will be around for the 
next three seasons. The squad also 
has some experience returning from 
last year in two good ball handling 
guards, John Cunningham and Ed 
Furman, and returning rebounding 
strength in Ron Kowalik, Glenn 
Jerrell, and Tom Lewis. 

Coach Hartley hopes to use a 
hustling, competitive defense, and 
a quick running fast break to im- 
prove last year's 9-11 record. It 
takes good dribbling and sharp 
passing to run this type of offense, 
and Coach Hartley has the men to 
do it in Cunningham and Mars 
Seiferth, with good bench support 
from Ed Furman and Pete Miller. 

Lewis, Jerrell,, and Kowalik will 
find themselves aided in the re- 
bounding department with the ad- 
dition of Bill Eisel and Paul Fitch. 
Eisel showed he could rebound on 
the varsity level with a fine show- 
ing in the scrimmage against Leb- 
anon Valley. Tom Lewis, last sea- 
son's leading scorer, will get plenty 
of help from the sharp shooting of 
Seiferth and Rich Kellerman. Dave 
Williams, a hustling defensive 
player, Larry Aaronson, a smooth 
ball handling guard, and Tom 
Johnson, a hot outside shooter, will 
also add depth to the Aggies at- 
tack. 

The team showed great promise 
in its first scrimmage with Leban- 
on Valley. The fast break and re- 
bounding still need a little polish, 
but that will no doubt improve by 

opening night. The scrimmage 
showed that the team has depend- 
able depth, which will mean a lot 
as the season gets under way. It 
also proved that the Aggies already 
have a host of good shooters and 
that the team should roll up some 
impressive point totals this year. 

The players themselves were im- 
pressed by the turnout and enthus- 
iasm shown by the student body 
at the scrimmage. It is hoped, as 
the team sharpens up their skills 
and improves their weaknesses, that 
the student bodv also builds up its 
enthusiasm ana gives the squad 
100% support throughout the com- 
ing season. This could be one of 
the better basketball teams Dela- 
ware Valley has had, and strong 
student support could make it the 
winningest team in school history. 



AGGIES WIN FIRST 
MATCH AT MORAVIAN 

by Kirk Ai^erson 

At press time D. V. C. had just 
emerged victorious from its first 
wrestling match against Moravian. 

In the 123 lb. class Kermit Moyer 
was pitted against Bemie Nart. 
First period, four points went to 
Nart for predicament and take- 
down; second period, two points to 
Nart for a reversal; third period, 
two points to Moyer for a reversal 
and two to Nart for a reversal plus 
a riding time advantage of two. 
Match to Nart for three. 

The next match went to Peter 
Martens in the 130 lb. class. Poor 
Rod Apple didn't know what hit 
him. Two points to Martens for a 
take-down and a fast pin of 1:55. 

Robert Felton at 137 lb. was 
pitted against Andy Madaycnik, 
and the two seemed to be matched 
evenly at first due to an escape 
and a take-down for three for each 
man at the end of the second. Fel- 
ton took the lead with another es- 
cape and take-down for six to three 
with an extra two for riding and the 
match by decision for three. That 
put the Aggies up eight to three. 

Bill Hartman 145 lbs. was pitted 
against co-captain Tom Dickerson, 
Dickerson gaining two for a take- 
down in the first, three for Dicker- 
son's escape and take-down and 
two for Hartman's reversal in the 
second, topping out with a re- 
versal for Hartman and two rever- 
sals for Dickerson. The match to 
Dickerson for three; Aggies eight, 
Moravian six. 

Gary Brubaker was pinned in 
the first period by 152 lb. Bob 
Kresge. Two to Brubaker for a 
take-down and two to Kresge for 
a reversal. Kresge put the Mor- 
avian team up on the Aggies eleven 
over our eight. 

Team Captain Charles Suloff 
then turned the tables with a fast 
pin for five in the 160 lb. class. 
Two to Charley for a reversal and 
two to De Castro for a take-down. 

Steve Peters followed Charley's 
lead to use his 167 against Sam 
Jones for a pin in the second period. 
All points to Steve; in the first, five 
for a take-down and a near fall, in 
the second, a predicament for two 
within a pin time of 4:36. 

John Hawk then lost by a decis- 
ion to Stanton. Hawk had two in 
each period from a take-down and 
two reversals. Stanton had four in 
the first from a fall and a take- 
down, followed by a reversal in 
the second for two, and an escape 
and a reversal for three in third and 
the match. 

The heavies went at it with 
Lloyd Corbitt against Dave Mucka. 
Lloyd earned two for a take-down 
in die first over Dave's escape for 




THE STUDENT BODY 
CAN HELP BUILD 
A WINNER 

by Howard Reed Heritage 

This year's Aggie basketball team 
has a great challenge ahead. Head 
Coach Al Hartley is trying to mold 
the first winning basketball team 
at D. V. C. since the 1956-57 sea- 
son. That year the Aggies won 11 
and lost 10. He has an excellent 
chance of doing this, using a return- 
ing nucleus from last year's 9-11 
team. 

In the last decade the Aggies 
have been an easy mark in basket- 
ball, and area colleges couldn't 
wait to play D. V. C, because it 
almost always meant an easy win. 
In the last ten years the Aggies 
have a disappointing combined 
record of 58 wins and 131 losses. 
Last year's team was one win shy 
of the victories of the previous four 
seasons combined. 

But things have changed at 
D. V. C, and our opponents now 
take us very seriously. Upset wins 
over Haverford College (61-58), 
Moravian College (71-70), and 
Philadelphia Pharmacy (88-84) 
proved that last year's team could 
play under pressure and must be 
considered a serious threat. This 
year, using a husthng defense and 
a hard running offense, the Aggies 
should have more upsets and many 
more victories. 

Fan support is very important 
in winning at basketball. If you 



one. The second period Mucka ran 
amuck with two for a reversal and 
three for a near fall. Lloyd got one 
in the third for an escape and Dave, 
three from Lloyd's stalling — who 
wouldn't? 

The final had D. V. C. over Mor- 
avian eighteen-seventeen. Not a 
bad start for a season. 



question this, just go down to the 
Palestra, in Philadelphia, and 
watch one of the city teams j^y. 
The fans helped St. Joseph's Col- 
lege I^ one of the best teams in 
the nation last year. This writer 
saw St. Joe upset Witchita, and be- 
lieve me the fans helped win that 
game as much as the team did. 
Home support was good last year, 
and this snowed up in the 7-4 record 
at home. The away support was 
very poor and this also showed up 
in the 2-7 road record. Everytime 
we play at home the gym should be 
packed. Many of the away games 
are within driving distance and 
there is no reason why a large fol- 
lowing cannot be at these games, 
also. The support of the student 
body can be the difference between 
a mediocre season and a great one. 

The college operates a basket- 
ball team, not for the twenty stu- 
dents who play, but for the entire 
student body. Those stands weren't 
put in Sidney Neumann Gymnasium 
to collect dust. Everyboay likes to 
raise hell, so why not come out to 
all the home games and raise some 
and help cheer D. V. C. on to a 
winning season. You might sur- 
prise yourself and have so much 
fun that you'll want to follow the 
team on the road and help prove 
that Delaware Valley College has 
finally become a real college.

(Non) Customary Views on Customs 

MY VIEWS ON 
CUSTOMS 

Conrad Weiser 

The purpose of Freshmen cus- 
toms is to aid new students in be- 
coming acquainted with the camp- 
us, to promote class spirit, and to 
acquaint them with each other." 
This first sentence was taken from 
the paper of rules for customs given 
to eaoi incoming student. There 
are tw) questions whidi I will try 
to answer in this report; first, did 
customs achieve these goals, and 
what I thought of customs? 

Customs did achieve one of the 
three goals in mv mind, and this 
was to acquaint the Freshmen with 
one another. The 5" x 8" sign that 
Frosh were required to wear at all 
times was just the thing to get 
everybody acquainted. 

Customs did not promote much 
class spirit. Why should the class 
unite when there was nothing to 
unite for? It was said that we 
should band together in order to 
oppose the Sophomore class; if we 
went against customs as a unit, we 
would have the faculty on our 
necks. 

The third goal that customs failed 
to adiieve was to acquaint the 
Freshmen with the campus. It was 
in this respect that the Sophomores 
themselves goofed. The questions 
that the Sophs asked were not to 
help you Imow the campus, but 
only to try and get the Frosh on 
work duty. Questions like how 
many flag poles are on campus do 
nothing for you, but those asking 
where the various farms are and 
what is raised on them are ques- 
tions which help. Other good ques- 
tions are where the different dorms 
are, where the oflBces of the mem- 
bers of the faculty are, and which 
people to go to in case you need 
help with something. 

I think that customs are good if 
they achieve the three goals set 
forth for them. Customs are no 
good as long as they are handled 
the way they were this year. 

The first thing that I think would 
help would be to set up work duty 
differently. The work duty this year 
was supposed to be a punishment 
for students who did not adhere to 
customs, but fortv minutes of easy 
work is not punishment. One day I 
even stood behind a tree and did 
nothing; that's punishment? 

The second gripe I have is that 
we had no rope pull to decide if 
customs would end after three 
weeks or continue for one addi- 
tional week. If Freshmen would 
have had to have the rope pull our 
class would have had to organize 
more, and this was one of the goals 
of customs. After three weeks of 
customs Frosh would love to see 
if they could make those "hated" 
Sophomores roll in the mud. 

In conclusion I would like to 
say that if the Frosh would have 
to follow customs to the letter they 
would benefit more from it.

AN INTERVIEW BY 
ROBERT HASSELBAUER 

Richard SMrra 
President of the Sophomore Class 

The purpose of customs are man- 
ifold, but most important is the 
fact that the new student gains a 
knowledge of the college's various 
functions, policies, purposes, ad- 
ministration, and the campus itself. 
This is accomplished by having the 
Freshmen commit to memory the 
student handbook, various cheers, 
rules and regulations. 

The traditional name cards worn 
by the Freshmen are probably the 
most beneficial part of customs. 
With each new student wearing a 
name card, introductions are easier 
and friends are made more easily. 
This is because all students can see 
at a glance from what locality and 
what interests their friends have, 
which they might have in common. 

Freshman customs are a good in- 
dication to all students, Freshmen 
and upperclassmen as well, as to 
who the "good sports'* are. The 
ways in which the Freshman re- 
acts to customs denotes which are 
the students who make the best of 
the situation at hand. These stu- 
dents will gain recognition, even 
though silent in many cases, but it 
will be displayed later when the 
class officers are chosen, and these 
"good sports'' who put out during 
customs will be remembered and 
recognized. They will go on to be- 
come an important part of the Class 
of 1969, as well as a part of Del. 
Val. College. 

An important factor of customs is 
unity. Unity, if not acquired in any 
other way, is eventually bonded be- 
tween all students who go through 
Ginkgo Lane every night. Students 



tend to remember one another, and 
later on these same students who 
endured the "hardships" of Ginkgo 
Lane together go on to complete 
glass projects, not simply as class- 
mates, but also as friends. 

Work duty symbolizes the con- 
sequences that will be typical in 
later years if one does not follow 
the rules and regulations. It is a 
penalty. Because of the newly in- 
stituted meal system, the time 
designated for work duty had 
to be cut in half. This meant that 
work duty was not as effective as 
it could have been. Investigation 
delving into a new system would 
be advisable as well as profitable, 
for the Class of 1969 will face the 
same problem next year unless 
something new is worked out. 



FRESHMAN CUSTOMS 

by O. Schramm 

I am all for freshman customs 
and I really think that it helps to 
organize the new class. They also 
help the new class learn about the 



campus and our proud traditions. 

There were never enough fresh- 
men at Ginkgo Lane, but the re- 
sponsibility of attendance should 
not be blamed on only the fresh- 
men. The sophomore class is, to a 
large extent, also responsible, for it 
was they who allowed this thing 
to continue unchecked. There 
should be some way to stop this. 

Even though football players, 
and others out for sports, are show- 
ing real school spirit, they should 
not be exempt from the freshman 
customs. They should be made to 
work or even to write an essay. 
Freshman customs is used to help 
organize the new class and bring 
out its leaders. 

Another thing which should be 
abolished is the possibility of get- 
ting work duty while working off 
other work duties. One way this 
could work, would be that the 
soph's could still ask questions and 
take names during work duty, but 
they could only use these names 
at Ginkgo Lane to see if those of- 
fenders had learned by then what 
they hadn't known earUer. 

The practice of having three or 
four cards taken in one night for not 
knowing just one thing should be 
abolished, or limited to just one 
or two cards. 

All of these ideas just stated 
have but one exception. They don't 
apply to those "wise guys" who feel 
they don't have to report for work 
duty on a charge which they have 
already received a work duty for. 

There should be a greater pen- 
alty for those frosh found hiding 
from Ginkgo Lane activities, and 
all those found guilty of this should 
be forced to learn the handbook 
within a short period of time. 




We're looking for a soph with soft shoes

CUSTOM'S CAPERS 
CAUSES CONCERN 

by B. Bobbins 

The frwhman's views of customs 
invariably (X>ncur with those of the 
sophoin(»« class as soon as customs 
end. The freshman class then de- 
velops a justified revenge policy for 
next year's incoming frosh. At tlw 
end of customs, the freshman class 
finds that they really are not so 
bad, and are an important part of 
developing college charater. 

These statements are probably 
taken for granted by most students 
who have come through customs 
and lived to tell about it. Custcnns 
will go on, but what are the views 
and experiences of a sophomore- 
one who will be influential in mold- 
ing the customs activities of the 
future? Here are some reflections 
of that subject by Bill Dunscomb, 
Vice President of the sop!K>more 
class and in charge of this yefU''s 
cust(Hns. 

"I feel that freshman customs is 
good if ouried out as though it is 
up to the individual. Those who 
hide in their rooms during the 
Ginkgo days are defeating the pur- 
pose of customs. The people wlw 
were at Ginkgo Lane are the nucleus 
of the class. Customs is a time for 
class leaders to come forward, and 
it is a help for sophomores in find- 
ing others from their home-town and 
in making friends. Poor attendance 
at a football game is a reflection on 
the class. Gingko Lane can be a lot 
of 'fun if both sides work together." 

"Wise guys' do something to pro- 
mote spirit and are in the minority. 
TTiey make it rough for everybody 
else. Those who do not comply 
with customs should have an ex- 
tended week of customs for them- 
selves and a six dollar fine; this 
would be determined by sopho- 
more class oflBcers. 

Conceiting football players be- 
ing exemi^ from customs. Bill says, 
"A football player should be re- 
quired to wear a sign, yell 'Button 
Frosh', and be responsible for not 
getting work duty. Mr. Linta will 
serve w(H-k duty to football playo^ 
next year." 

Many suggestions have b^n of- 
fered. "A good idea for work duty 
would be the organization of work 
details to clean the football field 
aftor games. The rope pull slwuld 
take place at halftime or the foot- 
ball field at homecoming or held at 
am^ho' time across Lake Arche. 
Another suggestion is that upper- 



classmen serve as "Big Brother" to 
the freshmen during customs. Up- 
perclassmen should be allowed to 
participate in customs, and this is 
the first year they have actually 
taken part. The parade through 
Doylestown was a good idea." 

"A lot of work goes into customs, 
and there is a lot of responsibility 
for the sophomores. All the respon- 
sibility falls on the sophomores. 
Those who did iK)t participate in 
customs as freshmen should not 
be allowed to participate as sopho- 
mores. The boys who went along 
with customs were good sports even 
though I ended up in a mudbath 
after the bonfire." 



THE SIGNIFICANCE OF 
FRESHMAN CUSTOMS 

by Robert Jones 

"Button frosh" was a cry heard 
by the freshmen of D.V.C. for three 
weeks. This period, known as fresh- 
man customs, was a time for sopho- 
mores to enjov a bit of superiority, 
and a time wnen freshmen were to 
be properly initiated into the col- 
lege. Ine entire affair is aimed at 
the freshman and sophomore 
classes, primarily for their own spe- 
cial amusement. However, it proved 
to be a time of conflict. Many of 
the boys felt that the idea of fresh- 
man customs was one more way to 
make things hard for them. For the 
benefit of next year's sophomore 
class, I think that it is worthwhile 
to review the purposes of customs 
and to cite reasons why so many 
felt bitter towards it. 

Customs, as it was explained to 
the freshman class, has as a primary 
objective, familiarizing the class of 
'69 with the college, its history, 
its buildings and their locations, 
schedules of such things as library 
hours, breakfast, lunch and dinner 
hours, and many other things I 
need not mention. Beyond this, the 
freshmen were forced to wear a 
s^n, beanie and tie at all times. 
Tney had to answer the phone 
within three rings and keep their 
rooms clean for fear of receiving 
work duty. 

All the things mentioned above 
have a special significance. By 
knowing many of the things in the 
handbook, we have asked fewer 
questions than we would have 
otherwise. Since we had to wear 
the 5x8 cards, we have met many 
freshmen and know most of our 
class-members by name. I'm sure 
that we would iM>t have become so 
familiar with each other bv any 
other informal method. In addition 
to this, our being forced to answer 
the phone in thr^ rings has made 
us a much more alert group. Can 
you imagine the pandemonium 
caused if no one bothered to an- 
swer the phoiK in an emergencyl 



And what about having to keep 
our rooms clean for tlibse three 
w^ks. The effects have stuck with 
most of us and we have a good 
habit of trying to keep them neat. 
So why have there been so many 
complaints? 

Oddly enough, the major portion 
of the trouble seems to be built 
around a great mass of confusion 
and disorganization. Quite often, 
people wtH) are supposed to be 
wearing the beanies and signs were 
going around without them. They 
would not report to Ginkgo Lane 
and they completely ignored cus- 
toms. Tnis made the participants 
suffer more, because they carried 
the burden for the whole freshman 
class. Those members of the class 
who were doing their best to co- 
operate became annoyed and de- 
pressed, and why shouldn't theyl 
After all, when 85 take on the 
responsibility of 225 it is a pretty 
good load, and those 85 are further 
legally handicapped. There is real- 
ly little they can do to make the 
others conform to customs. In addi- 
tion to this, there is a lack of leader- 
ship by the upperclassmen. When 
the freshmen are urged to support 
a school activity, they receive very 
little leadership from upperclass- 
men, and as with any other group, 
there are some who take the atti- 
tude. "Why should ir. 

In the future, I think that the 
procedure for handling customs is 
going to have to be improved. With 
its many fine purposes, we can 
hardly afford to have it deteriorate 
to the point of extinction. 

Improvements regarding work 
duty were initiated this year. The 
ever increasing work duty list was 
a new addition. In previous years 
the Freshman was held responsible 
for knowing his own number of 
days to be made up. 

Another improvement which 
mi^t be possible for next year's 
so^omore class would be to hold 
a student court session in the mid- 
dle of customs. A nominal fee could 
be charged to those Freshmen who 
had obtained work days, and a 
warning given to them. Then, an- 
other student court session would 
be held at the end of customs, as 
in this year. Any Freshman re- 
turning for a second trial would be 
handed a severe punishment. This 
practice of two court sessions would 
stress the importance of the men 
making up their work days that 
they had acquired. 

A third amendment discussed this 
year was the addition of another 
week of customs. This would only 
pertain to the non-participation 
students. 

The parade, which was intro- 
duced this year for the first time, 
was a great success. It is my hope 
that in future years, the parade, 
along with the bonfire, will be a 
traditional part of Freshmen cus- 
toms. 



COLLEGE LIFE 

A. Ronald Attarian 

I have discovered that living in 
a dormitCMy is quite a chaise hrom 
home life. Although Mother is not 
constantly intruding anymore, tl^re 
is always the flunkee-to-be w1m> 
must bailee in to play cards or fill 
your bedding with foaming ^ve 
cream. 

The oddest things occur between 
the hours of 7:00 and 12:00 at 
night. Fire hoses are insoted un- 
der a "buddie's" door and turned 
to "full"; door plates are exchanged, 
trash c^n covers are removed; sinks 
are filled with sand, toilet doore are 
reversed to stay locked; door knobs 
are removed, mattresses are re- 
moved from beds, (sometimes the 
whole bed disappears!); and last, 
but not least, roommates are thrown 
out into the dark, cold, female in- 
fested out-of-doors, stark raving 
naked! 1! To the villians, this is quite 
amusing, but the embarrassed vic- 
tim doesn't feel much like laughing 
after such an ordeal. 

Friday night is "happy night' at 
Delaware Valley College. It seems 
that after all or the "Joe-Colleges" 
go home, the fun begins. No one 
worries about classes for the next 
few days, and everyone has a good 
time. Nobody dares work test be 
be called a fool and all join in for 
fun, frolick, and festivitiw. "Bull 
Sessions" form, off-color jokes are 
exchanged, and plans for th« Satur- 
day night dates are exaggerated (or 
are they??). 

All in all, everyone has fun. Then, 
Sunday night is here (ugh!). "Oh 
what about chem lab . . . and my 
Enghsh theme!" Back to school un- 
til another Friday night.

campaigning. In fact, there was lit- 
tle time to campaign in the first 
place, with the result that some 
nominations came as a complete 
surprise to a candidate. This seems 
hardly the way to run an election 
if one wishes to avoid a mere popu- 
larity contest, and actually select 
the best man for the job. 

In order to be elected, a nominee 
needed a majority (over one half) 
of all the voters present (which, in- 
cidentally, amounted to only about 
two thirds of the class), necessita- 
ting several run-offs until an officer 
was chosen. 

The elected officers of the Fresh- 
man class are: 

President: Warren Hitz 
Warren graduated from Hershey 
'High School of Hershey, Pennsyl- 
vania. He was active in Football 
and Baseball all four years, the Var- 
sity Club in his Junior and Senior 
years, and a member of his class 
council all four years. He partici- 
pated in the Domestic Exchange 
and the National Honor Society in 
his Senior year. Here at D. V. C. 
Warren is on the Football team, 
and plans to major in Agronomy. 

Vice President: Charles Rocconi 
Chuck graduated from Plains Mem- 
orial High School in Plains, Penn- 
sylvania. He represented his school 
in Football, Basketball, and Base- 
ball all four years. He was a mem- 
ber of the Chorus, and was an ac- 
tive part of the Yearbook commit- 
tee. At D. V. C. he is on the foot- 
ball and basketball teams. He plans 
to major in Business Administra- 
tion, and is in the Business Admin- 
istration Club. 

Secretary: Frank Angelini 
Frank graduated from Cathedral 
High School in Trenton New Jer- 
sey. In high school he was on the 
football team in his Freshman and 
Sophomore years, and the track 
team and Varsity Club in his Junior 
and Senior years. He was the Secre- 
tary of the Science Club in his Jun- 
ior year. At Delaware Valley Frank 
plans to be a Biology major, and is 



active in the Science and Kennel 
clubs. 

Treasurer: James Sickora 
Jim graduated from Henderson Sen- 
ior High School in West Chester, 
Pennsylvania. He was an active 
member of his school band in his 
Sophomore, Junior, and Senior 
years, and was a Student Govern- 
ment Representative of his Sopho- 
more and Junior classes. Here at 
D. V. C. Jim belongs to the Glee 
Club, Dairy Club, the School Band, 
and the Soil Conservation Society. 
He plans to major in Agriculture. 

Student Government: 

Theodore Cottrell 
Ted graduated from Chester High 
School in Chester Pennsylvania. He 
was active in Football, Track, and 
the school band during his Sopho- 
more, Junior, and Senior years. At 
D. V. C. Ted is on the Football 
team, and plans to major in Biology. 

Student Government: 

David Williams 

Dave graduated from Triton Reg- 
ional High School (Red), in Runne- 
mede. New Jersey. In high school, 
Dave played Basketball all four 
years, and ran Cross Country in his 
Junior and Senior years. He was 
a Student Government Representa- 
tive and a member of his class Ex- 
ecutive Committee all four years. 
He belonged to the Science Honor 
Club in his Senior year. Here at 
Delaware Valley, Dave is on the 
Basketball team, is active in the 
Poultry Club, and plans to major in 
Food Industry. 

At the end of the month a con- 
firmation vote will have been held. 
At that time the officers can be 
either rejected or confirmed as class 
representatives for the rest of the 
year. 



MANDELL SCIENCE 
BUILDING 

by WiLUAM M. Dougherty 

The bids for the new Mandell 
Science Building have to be submit- 
ted to Dr. Work by 3:00 P.M., Oc- 
tober 21, 1965. The company that 
is awarded the contract has to agree 
to have the building completed by 
August 1, 1966. If the bids are 
within the college's budget, it is 
believed that construction will be- 
gin sometime in November. The 
classrooms in the new building will 



be ready for use at the beginning 
of the '66 fall semester. It will take 
the furniture company approxi- 
mately two or thr^ months, from 
the time the structure is completed, 
to install the laboratory equipment; 
therefore, the laboratories will not 
be in use before October. 

The new structure will be located 
between Lasker Hall and the Li- 
brary Annex. To allow space for 
the science building, the Chapel 
will be moved to another location 
on campus. 

The Mandell Science Building 
will be built in Georgian style, 
therefore keeping in vogue with 
the other building of the campus. 
The structure will be "L" shaped. 
It will be two stories in the front 
and three stories in the rear. The 
structure will be completely air 
conditioned and will contain an 
electrically operated dumb waiter 
for transporting heavy pieces of 
equipment. 

The approximate cost of the 
structure is one million dollars, in- 
cluding the furniture. New science 
equipment will cost approximately 
$135,000.00. 

The Science building will con- 
tain one lecture room with a seat- 
ing capacity of approximately 230 
students. The chairs will be mov- 
able, therefore enabling a variety 
of uses for the room, "rhe lecture 
room will also contain a three foot 
high platform, a projection booth, 
a pubhc address system, and a 
"house light" switch that can be 
operated from the platform or from 
the projection booth. Entrance to 
the projection booth will be from 
outside the lecture hall, therefore 
enabling a professor to prepare a 
film without disturbing another 
professor's lecture. Also on the first 
floor there will be one small room 
with a capacity of 25 to (K) students 
and it will be used for conferences, 
seminars, etc. Above the lecture 
hall will be located two classrooms 
with a seating capacity of approxi- 
mately 50 students each. 

The new science building will 
also contain three biology labora- 
tories, one biology instrument room, 
three chemistry laboratories, one 
balance room, one chemistry instru- 
ment room, one physics laooratory 
room, and two food industry labor- 
atories. One of the food industry 
laboratories will be used as a food 
processing laboratory. The labora- 
tories will be used for the advanced 
subjects in the respective majors. 
Freshman laboratories will remain 
in Allman Hall and in Segal Hill. 

The major advances over the 
present conditions will be the up- 
dating of the biology equipment, 
the purchasing of more micro- 
scopes, the purchasing of recording 
spectrophotometers, the purchas- 
ing of electric balances for use in 
the chemistry balance room, and 
the food processing laboratory 
previously mentioned.

FINE FOLK FUN OR/ 
PEPSI PLEASES 

by Burt Bobbins 

The Delaware Valley College 
Hootenanny of November 20th 
proved to be a great success with a 
capacity crowd of nearly 600 filling 
Neumann Gymnasium. 

The show began with sing-along 
songs which were performed by the 
Mossy Mountain Boys, Margo, and 
the Candy Men; although the in- 
dividuals did not have time to prac- 
tice as one group, the group sing- 
along was fine. 

Dierdre O'Callahan sang three 
numbers, accompanying herself on 
her harp; Mrs. O'Callahan had to 
leave early since she was scheduled 
to sing later in the evening at the 
Main Point in Bryn Mawr, Pa. 
Delaware Valley College was in- 
deed fortunate to be able to hear 
Mrs. O'Callahan since she has been 
booked heavily during her tour of 
the United States. She is a native 
of Ireland. 

The program then moved on with 
fine instrumentals and vocal selec- 
tions with the Candy Men and the 
Mossy Mountain Boys performing. 

The entire Hootenanny was 
sponsored by the Pepsi Cola Com- 
pany, and Pepsi was sold during 
the intermission, along with pret- 
zels and potato chips. 

Following the intermission, a 
medley of songs were sung, and 
then for the finale, everyone joined 
in to sing the opening number 
"Good Old Mountain Dew." 

The entire cost of the Hootenan- 
ny to the Student Government was 
only about $5.00, and thanks to the 
Pepsi Cola Company, most of the 
trouble of obtaining the personal- 
ities was eliminated. It is beheved 
the Pepsi Cola may be willing to 
sponsor another Hootenanny next 
spring.

Lee Wagner, Richard Lichten- 
walner, Dave Schultz, Charles 
Gembe, and Richard Koes. To in- 
dicate the sti£Fness of the competi- 
tion, the team averaged better than 
a 46 on its placings and still finished 
28th. 

Previous to Chicago, the team 
finished last at Harrisburg and 
Timonium. Although the team was 
thoroughly disappointed on their 
final showing, they are not ashamed 
of their placings. At Harrisburg, 
the team lost over 200 points on 
one gilt; these points would have 
won the contest for the Aggies. 
Even so, Lee Wagner finished with 
9 out of 12 perfect placings. How- 
ever a 2 on that gilt class ruined 
his chances for honors. At Tim- 
onium, the team didn't do much of 
anything right. In the beef division, 
Richard Lichtenwalner, who was 
hign individual on the team at 
Harrisburg, finished with placings 
of and 18 in the Angus division 
to help frustrate chances of success. 
The only good words said about 
that Angus judge were said by 
the judge himself. 

The final showinc of the team 
could be considered secondary to 
the impression that the Aggies 
made upon other schools and prom- 
inent people in the industry. Dr. 
Pelle and Delaware Valley College 
students are highly respected wher- 
ever they go. 

The Block and Bridle Club will 
start setting up the "A-Day" show- 
ing. Students who are interested in 
showing animals should watch the 
sign posts as to time of meeting.

Switzerland, England, France, Italy 
and Holland are open by the con- 
sent of the governments of these 
countries to American university 
students coming to Europe the next 
summer. 

For some years students made 
their way across the Atlantic to 
take part in the actual life of the

great deal or enthusiastic interest 
and support both in America and 
Europe. 

Every year, the program has 
been expanded to include many 
more students and jobs. Already, 
many students have made applica- 
tion for next summer jobs. Amer- 
ican-European Student Service (on 
a non-profitable basis) is offering 
these jobs to students for Germany, 
Scandinavia, England, Austria, 
Switzerland, France, Italy, and

tion work, and some other more 
qualified jobs requiring more spe- 
cialized training. 

The purpose of this program is 
to afford the student an opportu- 
nity to get into real living contact 
with the people and customs of 
Europe. In tnis way, a concrete 
effort can be made to learn some- 
thing of the culture of Europe. In 
return for his or her work, the 
student will receive his or her room 



and board, plus a wage. However, 
students should keep in mind that 
they will be working on the Euro- 
pean economy and wages will na- 
turally be scaled accordingly. The 
working conditions (hours, safety, 
regulations, legal protection, work 
permits) will be strictly controlled 
by the labor ministries of the coun- 
tries involved. 

In most cases, the employers have 
requested especially for American 



students. Hence, they are particu- 
larly interested in the student and 
want to make the work as interest- 
ing as possible. 

They are all informed of the in- 
tent of the program, and will help 
the student all they can in deriving 
the most from his trip to Europe.

Dairy Has Best Year Since *35 at Farm Show 



Bur'Del Joy Grand Champion Brown Swiss 



by Joel N. Martin 

From January 7 to January 14, 
six Brown Swiss and four Holstein 
animals were in Harrisburg, Pa. for 
the 50th annual Farm Show. The 
actual showing started on Monday 
with Guernseys, Ayrshires and 
Milking Shorthorns. On Tuesday, 
Holsteins were shown and on Wed- 
nesday, Brown Swiss and Jerseys. 

Wednesday proved to be the col- 
lege's best day, because an aged 
cow of the Delaware Valley College 
herd became Grand Champion 
Brown Swiss cow of the Farm Show. 
The cows name is Bur-Del Joy, sired 
by Autumn Sun. She also placed 
first in the Brown Swiss Aged Cow 
Class, Senior Champion Brown 
Swiss Female, and Brown Swiss 
cow with the Best Udder. 

Another cow. Castle Hill's Fairy, 
sired by Frojoy, won Reserve Sen- 
ior Brown Swiss Female and placed 
first in the 3 Years or Over and 
Dry Class. 

The other animals at the Farm 
Show were: 

1. Castle Hill's Holly 

Sire: Autumn Sun 

a: Second Premium in 

Aged Cow Class 

2. Castle Hill's Florabell 

Sire: Autumn Sun 

a: Fifth Premium Aged Cow 

Class 

3. D.V.C. Explorer 

Sire: W. I. Magic 

Dam: C. H. Esther

In the Open Get of Sire, Joy, 
Holly and Florabell won the class 
while Joy, Fairy and Holly wt)n the 
Dairy Herd Class. The Open Get 
of Sire means that the cxjws must 
have been bred by one bull. The 
Dairy Herd Class can consist of 
any three animals from a dairy 
herd and of the same breed.

Unfortunately the school did not 
win the Dairy Herdsman Award 
due to a situation beyond anyone's

Harry Carlsen, Dick Dunning, Don 
Hodge, Bill Joseponis, John Lang- 
wick, Joel Martin, Bob Templeton, 
and Les Young. Chet Raugnt was

things. GIRLS??? 



BUSINESS 
ADMINISTRATION CLUB 

The Business Administration 
Club has now become one of the 
major clubs on campus. The club 
has already made a fine name for 
itself by participating in all of the 
Intramurals, ( defeating Horticul- 
ture 30-26 and Science B 43-7). 
Our volleyball team finished high 
in the standings placing only sec- 
ond to Animal Husbandry. Al- 
though the team lost the champion- 
ship to Animal Husbandry, the 
team beat them in regular play. 

The Business Administration 
Club holds their meetings every 
other Thursday. In our previous 
meetings we have elected club of- 
ficers: 

Ronald Young 
President 

Peter Armstrong 
Vice President 

Gregg Thompson

HORT. SOCIETY ELECTS 

NEW OFFICERS 

by MwANGi Maganjo 

On February 9, the Hort. Society 
held a meeting at which the officers 
for the 1966-'67 academic year were 
elected. The newly elected officers 
are the following: 

David Benner 
President 

Ed. Funkhouser 
Vice President 

Richard Funt 
Secretary 

John Thompson 
Treasurer 

Jim Loucks 

Intramural Representative 
Mwangi Maganjo 

Publications Representative 

At the same meeting the Society 
decided that this year its annual 
trip would be to Adams County 
and tentatively scheduled it for 
April 15. There the Society vdll 
visit fruit processing plants, cold 
storages, and some orchards. The 
objective of the trip has always 
been to provide the students with 
the opportunity to supplement 
what they have learned in the class. 
This fact has not been overlooked 
in planning this year's trip. The 
knowledge and experience the 
members will gain will undoubtedly 
be rich and rewarding.

IMMIGRATION REPLIES 



ASSEMBLIES 



Editor 'The Furrow" 

Delaware Valley College of Science 

and Agriculture 

Doylestown, Penna. 

Dear Sir, 

I would like to answer a writer to 
your column, "Letters to the Editor" 
a Mr. Kirk Anderson, '68 who ex- 
presses some (X)ncern about the 
recent Cuban influx. 

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied 

pomp!" cries she 
With silent lips. "Give me your 

tired, your poor. 
Your huddled masses yearning to 

breathe free, 
The wretched refuse of your 

teeming shore. 
Send these, the homeless, 

tempest-tost to me, 
I lift my lamp beside the golden 

door. 

These inspiring words written by 
Emma Lazarus are found inscribed 
on a tablet inside The Statue of 
Liberty. Have you read them? Few 
who stand facing out toward the 
Atlantic Ocean and read these 
words can help but be misty eyed, 
reflective about all the great contri- 
bution that all nations of the globe 
have given to America by sending 
us their "huddled masses." 

As a former student, one of the 
great fringe benefits to be found on 
campus was the comradeship with 
the third, second and even first 
generation of these homeless. Truly 
our esteemed founder Rabbi Krau- 
skopf, a man of great vision, was in 
step with the "Spirit of America" 
and future generation when he fixed 
as a requirement for entrance, "the 
homeless boy". Take a good look at 
your American college friends. A 
great melting pot, in which all have 
contributed in kind to further the 
good of all. 

Now statistically please check a 
world almanap,. Total immigration 
from the West Indies in the last 
forty-five years stands at 708,242 
people. This from nine countries, 
with their own rich heritage further 
enriched by the Spanish, Portu- 
guese, New Englanders (from the 
clipper hip era) and Dutch. A 
large portion of the new Cuban 
immigrees are well if not highly 
educated, with many professional 
members in their numbers and have 
alreadv put their roots down, and 
.started to contribute. They have 
made total financial sacrifice and 
e\ en great personal sacrifice just so 
that their children could have a 
better way of life. Our history is full 
of men since the landing of the 
Pilgrims who have done the same 
thing. 

Welcome these people, get to 
krK)w them, your life will be richer 
for it.

The Editor 
"The Furrow* 



January 1, 1966 



The Editor 
The Furrow 
Del. Vail Coll. 
Doylestown, Pa. 

Sir: 

I am a foreign student, originally 
from Cuba and I want to answer, in 
an extensive form, the letter that 
Mr. Kirk Anderson addressed to you 
and which appeared in "The Fur- 
row" of December 1965. 

It is true in the United States 
there exists freedom of expression. 
I do not deny this right to anybody, 
but if Mr. Anderson is going to 
make use of this privilege he should 
be concerned not only with expres- 
sing true facts but also, he should 
have a thorough knowledge of his 
subject matter. 

I want first of all, to remind 
Mr. Anderson that throughout its 
history the United States has re- 
ceived refugees seeking freedom, 
not only from Cuba, but also from 
Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. 
This nation is a melting pot of 
people from many parts of the 
world. Unless Mr. Anderson has 
100% Indian ascendence, he himself 
is the product of some refugee who 
came to these sacred shores seeking 
freedom. Now I ask Mr. Anderson. 
Were your ancestors "freebooters," 
Were they "Political Opportu- 
nists" or were they part of 'The 
poor, the tired and the huddled 
mass yearning to breath Free"? 

It is my desire that Mr. Anderson 
and those other individuals thinking 
along his line would look at this 
problem not in a biased way but 
in a subjective form. If he wishes to 
talk about the Cuban situation he 
should consider all of the factors 
encountered in its socio-political 
structure, in the economic bases and 
its religious beliefs. He should look 
into the history of the nation and 
read about its heroes and patriots 
who formed this nation. He should 
look for references that may help 
him to define and state the ties that 
ever existed between the United 
States and Cuba. 

It is not fair for the hundreds of 
refugees who arrive in this nation 
from all parts of the world, for 
people to write simple and un- 
sounded facts about them without 
asking oneself, "Where would I be 
if my family hadn't moved to 
America?" 

Respectfully Yours 

Manuel Rodriguez '67 



Dear Sir, 

Since our college has now ex- 
panded beyond the realm of agri- 
culture and oflFers programs in 
Biology, Business and Chemistry, it 
might be well to review our 
assembly program. 

A general assembly should be of 
general interest and not aimed at a 
selected portion of the student 
body. To this date the topics have 
been: 

October 13, "Future of Agricul- 
ture in Pennsylvania." 

November 16, Tlant Industay." 

December 8, "Natural resources 
and land use in our changing time." 

This list appears to be hardly fair 
to the two hundred four nonagri- 
culture students on campus; be- 
sides, even a Dairy major has 
different interests than an Orna- 
mental Horticulture man. It seems 
to me that the assembly program 
committee is bringing us programs 
which woulfl be far more suitable 
for one of the professional clubs on 
campus. 

Consideration might also be given 
to the idea of relaxing the atten- 
dance regulations now in force. At 
many schools students are required 
to attend only a certain percentage 
of scheduled assemblies, thus per- 
mitting them to select the ones in 
which they are most interested. 

Let us not have to choose be- 
tween citizenship standing and a 
wasted hour. 

Respectfully yours, 

Han-Jolyon Lammers 



THANK-YOU NOTE 

December 8, 1965 

Dr. James Work, President 
Delaware Valley College 
Doylestown, Pa. 

Dear Dr. Work: 

May I express the appreciation of 
the members of American Legion 
Post 798 to both the Glee Club and 
the G^man Brass Band of Dela- 
ware Valley College. 

Both groups performed at the 
Norristown State Hospital, the Glee 
Club on December 2, and the 
German Brass Band on the 5th. 

These students have taken of 
their own time to perform before 
disabled veterans and other patients 
and their efforts are to be com- 
mended. In contrast witji the 
minority of college students who 
are reaping publicity by under- 
mining their Country, the students 
of Delaware Valley College have 
brought pleasure to men who are 
still suffering the ravages of war. 
Sir, we salute their efforts. 
Respectfully, 
Drew Cavan, Chairman 
Hospital Entertainment 



FARM SCHOOL 

January 19, 1966. 

Dear Mr. Green: 

In a letter to the editor in the 
October 1965 issue of "The Furrow" 
the student writing the letter prop- 
erly decried the actions of other 
students in their behavior towards 
some young lady visitors. Whether 
or not his erudite analysis of their 
motivations was correct is a moot 
point. 

However, in the closing para- 
graph a scurrilous reference was 
made to the students of "Farm 
School." 

The writer was as guilty of bad 
taste in this reference as were those 
he criticised for their affront. 

Just as Penn State Universitv 
originated as "Farmer's Hign 
School", and Dartmouth College 
was formerly "Moore's Charity 
School for the Indians", (which is 
why to this day they are called 
"The White Indians"), so the pre- 
decessor of Delaware Valley Col- 
lege was the National Farm 
School. 

It would not even have been 
whispered that the students of the 
Farm School would have behaved 
in this manner. 

The writer of the letter referred 
to evinces an immaturity of judge- 
ment not complimentary to a young 
man presumed to possess intelli- 
gence at the college level. 

Very sincerely yours, 
Kenneth B. Mayer, Past president

Editor,

Delaware Valley College 

Doylestown, Pa. 

Dear Sir, 

I have just received your Novem- 
ber edition of the Furrow which 

carried a letter signed "William 

J»» 
ones . 

Mr. Jones is properly indignant 
over alleged disgraceful conduct on 
the part of several students in Work 
Hall Lounge. 

While I cannot condone the 
actions which he describes, his last 
paragraph was completely out of 
order. Since when did tne name 
"Farm School" stand for that kind 
of conduct and "Aggie" a synonym 
for animal? 

I am sure that any Farm School 
grad will resent this slur and I 
shall be very much surprised if you 
don't hear from many of them. 

( Ed note: We certainly have! ) 

Too bad Mr. Jones wasn't equal 
to the situation . . . rather than to 
infer that this was a carry-over from 
typical student behavior during the 
college's evolutionary period. 

Sincerely your

CLUB & CLASS ACTIVITIES 



Dear Editor, 

The opinion of at least one stu- 
dent here is that the students of 
DVC are apathetic to outside in- 
terests. This would indicate an edu- 
cation with a one-sided approach. 
The fact that we have no demon- 
strations here for integration, 
against Viet Nam, or for peace 
seems to differentiate us from other 
schools around the country. The 
only subject that ever gets any 
enthusiasm is the cafeteria. Are the 
students here apathetic? Is the type 
of student represented here greatly 
different from the type of student 
at other colleges? 

With no fraternities here to get 
students together for large group 
discussions, and with the club pro- 
gram only moderately successful in 
most areas, is there anything to spur 
student interest? 

Most of the graduates here are 
placed in good graduate schools or 
good jobs, and the Graduate Record 

FURROW POLICY 

All letters which intelligently 
and constructively state a students 
view are welcome. All letters must 
be signed. "Letters to the Editor" 
was established as an outlet for the 
students views. It's up to you, the 
student, whether or not this column 
stays in the Furrow. If you have 
something to say, let the proper 
people know through your news- 
paper. 



Exam always places a great number 
of DVC students high on the 
national scale. This indicates a high 
caliber of student, and a good edu- 
cation program, but there is room 
for improvement. The Science 
Building now in the process of being 
constructed and the proposed SUB 
and new dorms are all steps in the 
right direction of a long and con- 
tinuing process. Of the many stu- 
dents here that are <x}nstant 
complainers about the school, most 
are bored because of the lack of 
activities and don't feel like study- 
ing, therefore the only thing left to 
do is complain. 

The constant and continuing im- 
provement of the school is demon- 
strated by this paper, which is 
infinitely better than previous years, 
and which will become even better 
as interest improves. 

A supporter, 

D. Gensemer

POULTRY CLUB 

by Ronald Attarian 

Our , organization has been busy 
making plans for the 1966 "A"-Day. 
We are purchasing several rare and 
exotic breeds of poultry and will be 
showing them at the coming fair. 
We also have ordered 100 chicks 
for experimentation and will have 
them on display. The subject of 
having a skin grafting exhibit is 
being contemplated as another in- 
teresting exhibit. 

This Spring, we are going to visit 
the Philadelphia Zoological Gar- 
dens for a tour of their bird sanc- 
tuary. We hope to learn more about 
the characteristics and ways-of-life 
of the many tropical birds. 

We have sent a delegate, Drew 
Watts, to the Farm Show in Har- 
risburg. He will be looking for 
persons that will be able to give 
us some rare breeds of poultry. 

Our elections will be held on 
February 1, 1966. 

I would like to close by saying 
that our club will have no connec- 
tions with those who wish to form 
athletic intramural teams by using 
the club's name. 

P.S. May the Bird of Paradise 
build a nest in your mouth! 



CONTEMPORARY CLUB 

by Joel N. Martin 

This article by the Contemporary 
Club is in the form of an editorial to 
the student body. 

For any club or society to func- 
tion and supply activities to its 
membership, a sufficient number of 
members first must be willing to 
join the club and then a number of 
these must be active, participating 
club members. This is a general 
statement, but it applies to one club 
on this campus especially, the Con- 
temporary Club. 

For the past eight years of the 
club's existence a few interested 
students have joined and partici- 
pated actively. But for a very small 
club to keep up with its college's 
growth, it needs new and exuberant 
members. Where are these new 
members? 

The Contemporary Club is al- 
ways told, "you don't do anything so 
why should I join." Well, the reason 
for the inactivity of the Contem- 
porary Club is the lack of student 
support and willingness to make 
this club as thriving as the other 
large, active clubs on campus. 

We of the Contemporary Club 
wish to state our unequivocal belief 
that if no student support is given 
to this club in the very near future, 
the club will die. It this club dies, 
we definitely believe that our school 
will find itself in the position of 
being called just "Cow College" for- 
ever, instead of Delaware Valley 
College. 



SCIENCE SOCIAL 

by AlanZelley 

There are some activities being 
undertaken by the Science Society 
that should be of special interest to 
biology and chemistry students. 

In order to acquaint its members 
with some of the types of opportu- 
nities available to them, the Science 
Society has invited graduates of 
this college to talk before the club 
concerning their present work. On 
December 13th Robert Mason gave 
a talk relating to his work with 
steroids. February 8th there will be 
a graduate to talk of his experi- 
ences in the School of Dentistry at 
Temple University. 

The society has plans for a field 
trip to the Smithsonian Institute 
sometime during the third week of 
February. This will be a wwth- 
while opportunity for many mem- 
bers to observe some of the num- 
erous displays to be found in this 
museum. 

Orders for lab coats or aprons 
will be taken at the beginning of 
the semester. Notices giving further 
details will be posted. 

I would like to remind those who 
are interested that ik)w is the time 
to start thinking about possible A- 
Day Projects. You might have some 
pet interest of yours mat you could 
work into an exhibit and if so, the 
sooner you start the more satisfac- 
tory the results.

DAIRY SCX:iETY 

by Joel N. Martin 

During the month of December 
at one of the Dairy Society's meet- 
ings Mr. Paul Damm spoke to us on 
raising purebred cattle for profit. 
He also emphasized how a person 
goes about selecting brood cows 
tor a herd and then the technioues 
of maintaining them and tneir 
calves. 

Recently many of the members 
have been working down at the 
dairy to prepare the four Holsteins 
and six Brown Swiss dairy animals 
in Hanisburg. Among the Brown 
that are going to the Farm Show 
Swiss animals is a seventeen month 
old bull whose body conformation 
is hoped will win nim first place 
in his class. An outstanding Hol- 
stein heifer is also going to the 
Farm Show along with all the 
other animals. 

AGRONOMY CLUB 

by John Figuozzi 

Those of you "Aggies" out there 
who have still managed to avoid be- 
coming members of the Agronomy 
club better join soon, because the 
coming activities for the club mem- 
bers promise to be entertaining, in- 
formative, interesting, and educa- 
tional. 

Immediately ahead is the Harris- 
burg State Farm Show which the 
, Agronomy club members are at- 
tending on the 12th of January. 
Doctor Prundeanu, the faculty ad- 
visor for the club, has planned the 
club trip to be held in February, 
to the Pennsylvania State Depart- 
ment of Agriculture in Harrisburg. 
The trip will feature inspection of 
seed analysis, seed certification, and 
plant pathology stations, as well as 
an extensive entomology collection. 
Planned for the same day is a visit 
to the Lebanon Chemical Corpora- 
tion in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. The 
Lebanon Corporation specializes in 
liquid and dry fertilizers, agricul- 
tural chemistry, including their own 
research laboratory, and a DDT 
plant. The company is an advocator 
of soil testing, and has a spreader 
service for lime. 

Agronomy club meetings, held 
every two weeks in Segal Hall, have 
been featuring reports by club 
members. Dave Stockbridge "67" 
showed a number of picturesque 
and very interesting slides of a trip 
he took to Europe in 1964. Dave, 
who had gone to Europe purposely 
to study agriculture both in Free 
Europe and behind the Iron Cur- 
tain, explained many surprising and 
often amusing facts that were hith- 
erto unknown by most of our stu- 
dents. 

Future meetings will feature 
guest speakers such as: Mr. Robert 
Bums, who will talk on salesman- 
ship in ihe fields of Dairy and Ani- 
mal Husbandry, and veterinary 
equipment. Mr. Burns, a DVC graa- 



BLOCK AND BRIDLE 

The Block and Bridle club mem- 
bers will again show the College's 
livestock at the Golden Anniver- 
sary Pennsylvania Farm Show. The 
An. Hus. aepartment sent 15 head 
of cattle, despite protests from 
people ignorant to the advantages 
of showing livestock at a major 
show. The advantages He not only 
in the education of our students to 
the show ring, but also in the pres- 
tige of the snow ring, and in the 
possible profit of selling breeding 
stock. TTie department is also show- 
ing 4 Hampshire sheep of excel- 
lent quality.

THE ORNAMENTAL 

HORTICULTURE CLUB 

by Joseph Rothschild 
The Ornamental Horticulture 
Club has many activities ahead 
that will be of great interest to its 
club members. The club banquet 
is one of the major topics. At a lew 
of the meetings it was discussed 
that a number of places should be 
contacted before any decision might 
be made. The places that were con- 
tacted are: CoUegeville, Barretts, 
and the Water W^eel Diner. The 
CoUegeville was decided upon and 
the trip will be made on the ninth 
of March. 

Another activity that has l^en 
planned for the club is the club 
trip. Arnold Arboretum, Doris 
Duke, Roehrs, and the New York 
Flower Show were suggested. Doris 
Duke will be this year s trip and it 
will be on April 15. 

The Chairmen from each class 
were chosen for the garden re- 
treats that will be displayed on 
A-Day. The chairmen are: Senior 
Al Anderson; Junior Ken Kolodziej; 
Sophomores Jim Dougherty and 
Walt Bobb. 

DEBATING 

by Richard Funt 

The Debating team of Delaware 
Valley College visited Drexel Insti- 
tute of Technology to witness a top 
notch debate. Over 70 colleges from 
all across the country were com- 
peting in a switch tournament. 
Drexel oflFered its computers to 
work out "power teams" so that the 
teams would meet other teams of 
equal strength. 

Under the guidance of Mr. Brin- 
ker, the D.V.C. team witnessed a 
Debate with John Hopkins Univer- 
»sity as the afiRrmative and the 
University of Pittsburgh as the 
negative. Both teams moved rapidly 
•in presenting their talks whicn 
made it very difficult to compre- 
hend what had been said. 

The D.V.C. team, consisting of 
Henry McCarter, Bill Edmonds, 
Richard Funt, Harold Brubaker, 
Phil Kennedy, and Don Carkuff, 
met many outstanding teams and 
were invited to tournaments next 
spring. 

In the near future the team plans 
to present a debate at an assembly 
and on A-Day. We also plan on 
entering a tournament this spring.

'67 NEWS 

by R. W. KnucwooD 
Del. Val. has recently made its 
sixth annual, and largest, contri- 
bution to the Red Cross Blood 
Bank. Out of 234 volunteers came 
196 pints of blood. This year's ses- 
sion was unique because 14 per- 
sons were rejected because of a 
shortage of bottles and 12 would-be 
donators were under 18 years of 
age and for this reason rejected. 
The class of '67, which has lead 
the school in percentage of dona- 
tors for two consecutive years, has 
been challenged. According to Mr. 
Linta it will be a ck)se contest be- 
tween the Juniors and freshmen 
this year. If the Juniors emerge 
victorious (they will, of course), 
they will have tied the record set 
by the class of '63 and be in "shoot- 
ing distance" of a new record. Do- 
nators will be able to pick up their 
cards either this week or next in the 
infirmary. 

The possibility of the Class of 
'67 having their yearbooks delivered 
in August of the senior year instead 
of June will be one of the topics 
discussed at the next class meeting 
to be held on February ninth. This 
would mean that the class' spring 
activities and senior prom would 
be included. The books would be 
mailed at no extra cost to any speci- 
fied address and the over-all cost to 
the class would be less.

founders on Founder's Day. He 
then introduced Senator Shapiro. 

Senator Sliapiro's address cen- 
tered upon the history of the college 
mentioning that the College started 
with a student body of six and a 
faculty of two. He spoke warmly

IAN AND SYLVIA ON CAMPUS 




IAN AND SYLVIA 

"Folk singers . . . could hardly find a 
more tasteful model than the work of Ian 
and Sylvia," said the New York Times 
in reviewing^ their disk, Four Strong 
Winds. Not only the Times' formidable 
critic, but connoisseurs of folk music 
throughout the United States and Canada, 
have been charmed by the honesty, the 
poignancy, the genuine musical ability 
and the scope of Ian and Sylvia. 

At a time when everyone who owns a 
guitar is trying to get in on the folk music 
windfall, Ian and Sylvia stand high above 
the crowd by virtue of the integrity and 
good sense inherent in their every 
musical presentation. They have the in- 
valuable ability to pudge what is good 
and what is not. They have the patience 
and enthusiasm to experiment with a song 
that "seems right" for them until their 
voices, their accompaniment, their pacing, 
their emotions, each assume their tenuous 
balance in an artistic unity. The singer is 
fo(^ardy who copies a number from Ian 
and Sylvia. They cannot be matched. 

Their repertoire of English and Ameri- 
can classic ballads, mountain music, Negro 
blues, cowboy ballads, and French Cana- 
dian material is faultless. 




They can infuse their own personalities 
into the rendition of a song, thus giving it 
life, without ever intruding to the point 
where they would distract attention from 
the essential value of the song. 

And Ian and Sylvia are young, young 
enough to find a direct rapport with their 
college age followers who seek in folk 
music reassurance of the basic values of 
American life. 

Both Ian Tyson and Sylvia Fricker are 
Canadians. Both were successful perfor- 
mers in their owti right before they met 
and sang together in a Toronto coffee 
house. 

Ian grew up on a farm in Canada's 
cowboy country, the far west province of 
British Columbia. The great UiriU of his 
early years was the rodeo. As soon as he 
was old enough, he and his young com- 
panions travelled the surrounding ranch- 
lands to take part in the rodeos. He 
learned about human nature early, in the 
special contact a rodeo provided. Its ever- 
present danger sharjwned character. It 
was while recovering from a serious 
injury at the age of nineteen that Ian was 
able to concentrate completely on his 
deepening interest in music. He was 
drawn to country music in particular and 
learned to play the guitar. 

Though he majored in fine arts at 
University, lan's real interest continued to 
be music. After graduation he took small 
singing jobs wherever they were available 
and studied with Roy Guest when that 
noted English folk singer toiu-ed Canada. 
Guest introduced Ian to the whole range 
of folk music and he became especially 
involved with mountain and country 
singing. He was moved deeply by the high 
wailing Kentucky tenor. He hitchhiked 
east to the cosmopolitan city of Toronto 
to perform country music in coffee houses. 
There he met Sylvia. 

There is still something of the rodeo 
left in Ian. He has the mark of quiet 
independence noted in cowboy heroes. 
He embodies that tension between free- 
dom and nostalgia in his music. 

The graceful, symmetrical beauty of 
Sylvia's face in respose is transformed into 
vibrancy when she sin^. She is self- 
possessed and inspired before an audience. 
She is a natural musician. Apart from a 
few piano lessons from her mother in 
Chatham, Ontario, her home town, Sylvia 
learned everything she knows on her own. 

She mastered the autoharp and looked 
for new frontiers. It is no wonder that her 
singing style was so personal and distinc- 
tive when she met Ian in Toronto. 

Together they have done concert tours, 
dramatic roles on the Canadian television 
network, and innumerable nightclub en- 
gagements. They won quick recognition 
on United States television with their 
appearances on the Hootenanny program 
and The Bell Telephone Hour. 

Ian enjoys the psychological aspect of 
performing. He became aware of its plea- 
sure when he took part in the rodeos. He 
says this is probably part of the reason he 
turned from the visual arts to music. 
Sylvia sees her work personally in terms of 



her music and has a special fondness for 
the songs of Elizabethean England. 

As in the case with other fine artists, 
the apparent simplicity of Ian and Sylvia's 
music is the result of intensive work with 
their material and inspired performance. 
They have yet another quality which 
marks them as folk singers with a future — 
besides the critics and the public, other 
folk singers like and respect them. 



CONTEMPORARY 

by Joel N. Martin 

The Contemporary Club is a small club 
whose activities aim to stimulate a cul- 
tural environment on the campus so that 
a D.V.C. student can supplement his 
regular college courses and the major 
clubs with a liberal arts type club. At 
times it has been extremely hard to say 
that this club existed due to its lack of 
membership and inactivity. We hope to 
change that concept this year. 

On October 7 the Contemporary Club 
is sponsoring this Ian and Sylvia Concert. 
This is part of our effort to make Home- 
coming a weekend affair instead of a one- 
day football game with a dance. This is 
our first undertaking of such tremendous 
proportions and we are hoping that some 
other students will join the club and help 
make this concert at success. 

Besides this concert there will be one 
speaker each month. The speakers will 
speak on varied and interesting subjects. 
Chess will also be played in one of the 
Libraries, every other week. There will be 
at least one car available often for going 
to see art movies at the Stratidi Theatre in 
Lambertville. 

There are other activities planned and 
we of the Contemporary Club are always 
open to suggestion. We wish to welcome 
the freshmen and hope to see some new 
faces at our meetings.

THE AMERICAN WAY 
TODAY AND TOMORROW 

by Richard Funt 
. If there were some means of looking 
at the United States and getting a good 
look at the country, one could see a 
prosperous nation. There are poverty- 
stricken sections in our country, yet our 
people are the best fed, best dressed, 
best housed, and best educated group 
that has ever existed on the face of 
the earth! What is going to happen 
to this pn^perity? 

Historians tell us that the average 
democracy lasts for about two hundred 
years. They go on to tell us that de- 
mocracies are founded by simple, hard 
working, and courageous people. Learned 
men also tell us that democracies fail 
because in such a government a living 
standard is engendered by succeeding 
generations which encourage people to 
become lazy, sophisticated, and cowardly. 

Our nation began just 189 years ago. 
According to historians there are approx- 
imately 10 to 20 years for our country 
to be a democracy. Are the people of 
the United States becoming lazy, so- 
phisticated, and cowardly? 

Today conformity is sweeping the na- 
tion. The majority of the population take 
an easy path and just "go along with 
the crowd." They do not want anything 
different or original. There are stories 
in our daily newspapers of thirty to forty 
people witnessing the beating of another, 
yet the people stand aside and do noth- 
ing. The great evangelist Billy Graham, 
in one of his speeches says 'The world 
today, it seems to me, suffers not only 
from the lack of rugged convictions, 
but also from our timidity in expressing 
those convictions we do have. Our motto 
too often seems to be, "stay aloof." Don't 
get involved. Let somebody else stick his 
neck out." 

People are sitting back pushing buttons 
to turn on the television or to do the 
dishes. The modern trend is to let the 
government keep society. Everyone wants 
more benefits from the government. In 
an issue of U. S. News and World Report 
an article stated that President Johnson'? 



advisors would like to pay salaries to stu- 
dents for staying in school. 

I have been tearing down the citizenry 
of the United States. I did this for one 
purpoM. I am trying to make you aware 
that history will speak again if the popu- 
lace of the United States does not change 
its way of living. 

What do we need as a nation to 
increase good citizenship? 

"We need more people who are 
honest; honest with the stem intoler- 
ance that considers a lie contemptible 
and a broken promise a black disgrace. 
We need more people to use their 
heads, to make judgments, and to 
take action. 

We need more people who are bold 
and who are not stopped by danger. 
We need more people who can take 
the calculated risk and lose and be 
right back on their feet to try again. 
We need more people to be pa- 
tient, but who can become dangerous 
if pushed too far. History speaks plain- 
ly about this and says, 'No nation ever 
won freedom without fighting for it 
nor kept it without the will to fight.' 
We need more people with the will- 
ingness to work. We need people to 
work not for fame or fortune but to 
gain satisfaction from what they are 
doing. 

We need more people to be patriot- 
ic and aware that love of country is 
essential to all people because in pa- 
triotism there is pride and in pride con- 
fidence and in confidence achievement. 
And from where do these people 
come? They come out of the heart and 
soul of any nation that can still make 
judgment for themselves. Such peo- 
ple come from the home where un- 
selfishness is the basic rule, from the 
school where the basic discipline is 
self-discipline and from the college 
where not only knowledge is acquired, 
but worthy goals of justice, honor, and 
service are set for country and fellow 



that we can show the world that de- 
mocracy can endure as long as people 
are willing to let democracy live.

man. 



Certainly, we still have some of those 
people who are hard working and value 
simple things. We find most of these 
people on farms and related to agricul- 
ture. Not all of these people are on 
farms, but the majority of them are 
found in agriculture. 

When you look at a person of agri- 
culture you see many things. First, he or 
she is an individualist or a non-con- 
formist. The person puts individual time 
in planning and working in the business. 
Second, these people are in agriculture 
for fame or for financial gain. These peo- 
ple are in the business because they 
enjoy the freedom of working at some- 
thing they enjoy. 

How can we as people of agriculture 
get more people to be honest, patriotic 
and self-disciplined? 

We get more people to exhibit these 
qualities if we ourselves set living ex- 
amples of honesty, justice and - service 
to our country and fellow man. We have 
to decide between right and wrong and 
have strong convictions of conduct. No 
one can measure or calculate the effect 
you and I have on others. Every time 
we are in public, people will watch 
every move we make. Therefore, if we 
are good citizens then others, observing 
us, will want to be g(Kxl citizens. 

Tfxlay our nation is decaying; decay- 
ing in such a way that if we do not 
change our ways of living we will go 
down the road to socialism. Therefore, 
we as college students and citizens of 
the United States of America must be 
living examples of good citizenship so

NEW ARRIVALS 

by M. Bausher 
The school looks torn up doesn't it? 
It's all for a good reason — for in the 
midst of all this excavation rises our new 
and much needed architectural "arrivals" 
which will be a part of the Delaware 
Valley College campus. 

Near the site of the chapel stands a 
prominent new science building which 
will house the laboratories and other 
science facilities. Included in this struc- 
tuie will also be a large lecture auditor- 
ium which will augment our classrcmm 
facilities. This new building will be the 
f(x:al point of our educational plants. 

lis architecture lends itself to that 
of the rest of the campus giving harmony 
to our overall building plan. These new 
buildings skillfully blend the past with 
the present. 

For many of us the new laboratories 
will be a great change horn those de- 
lightful chambers below Allman Hall, 
which served the school for many years. 

Our old parking lot has also gone 
through change in the construction of 
two new dorms built during the sum- 
mer. These new buildings will house 
many of our students in modem com- 
fort during the coming year. 

The new dorms will provide expanded 
living and recreational facilities for our 
present and future students. These new 
dorms follow closely the construction of 
Work Hall in 1964 as part of the current 
building program. This new housing 
has come into being in light of our ever 
increasing enrollments over the years. 
The phenomenal growth of school en- 
rollment is no stranger to Delaware 
Valley College and the^ new dorms will 
alleviate some of the housing problems. 

The rooms will be large and modem 
in decor with provisions for the stu- 
dent's convenience and privacy. 

Although the new dining hall does not 
add to the academic part of our campus. 
The new building will house the newest 
and most modern food handling equip- 
ment, which will be another welcomed 



change this year. The new hall will 
seat many more students (about 300), 
and is designed for efficient and com- 
fortable eating. 

Remembering the problems of the old 
hall the "seasoned" students will find 
the new dining hall a most functional 
and welcomed addition. 

All of us should look with pride on 
these new buildings and thank those 
people who have made these buildings 
a reality. We can be sure that these 
buildings were not an ovemight whim 
nor the work of short sighted individ- 
uals, but in all honesty the dream of 
men who saw our need both present 
and future and have worked diligently 
to correct that need. We can all be proud 
of their accomplishments. 

YOUR MILITARY 
OBLIGATIONS 

Burt Bobbins 

As students return to college for the 
fall semester, it is natural that their 
thoughts turn to their chances of being 
drafted. Naturally, if a student is re- 
ceiving good grades or even average 
grades, he may tend to be unconcerned. 

Many times, however, it is not a ques- 
tion of grades but rather of his class 
standing. The student who intends to 
receive a deferment should be: within 
the upper one-half of the male class 
at the end of his freshman y*-ar, within 
the upper two thirds of the male class 
at the end of his sophomore year, or 
within the upper three-quarters of the 
male class at the end of his junior year. 
These standings must be maintained 
if the student is to continue his educa- 
tion the next year. A senior who intends 
to go on to graduate school must be 
within the top 25% nf his graduating 
male class. 

Many students have taken or will take 
a Selective Service College Qualification 
Test. An undergraduate must receive a 
grade of 70% if his class standing is low. 
The senior who hopes to go to gradu- 
ate school must T&:eive a grade of 80%. 
If the class standing is low and the 
College Qualification Test grade is low, 
then the student is placed in 1-A class 
for processing into the military service. 
Below is an explanation of how the Se- 
lective Service draws men from the total 
national available manpower. 

A student must register for the Se- 
lective Service within five days of his 
18th birthday or may be subject to a 
maximum of five years imprisonment and 
$10,000 fine. When a student registers, 
he is placed into one of the following 
classes depending on his status:

CLUB & CLASS ACTIVITIES 



CIRCLE K: 

by S. Torok 

The purpose of D.V.C. Circle K is to 
Build Personal Understanding by pro- 
viding: an opportunity for leadership; an 
importunity to serve on the campus and 
in the community; an oppoortunity to 
encourage participation in group activities 
and an opportunity to work with the 
administration on matters whk^h deal widi 
college life of campus. 

In the following '66-'67 school year, 
Circle K hopes to concentrate on building 
a strong and serviceable wganization. 
Plans are being made in hopes of Circle 
K sponsoring a sports-car rally on the 
D.V.C. campus. 

DEBATING 1966-67 

Richard Funt 

The Intercollegiate Debating Society 
of Delaware Valley College was organ- 
ized in the fall of the 1965-66 school 
year. Getting acquainted widi the way 
in which collegiate debating is handled, 
was easy, but debating in omipetition 
came to reahty for the first time when 
oai team entered varsity level competi- 
tion on April 16, 1966. 

April 16th was a big day for the 
members of the team as well as E>ela- 
ware Valley College. For the first time, 
Delaware. Valley College was rubbing 
elbows with Boston University, Colum- 
bia University, and West Point. Dela- 
ware Valley scor^ wins against Pace, 
Endinboro, and Bridgeport with the Iosks 
to Columbia University, Boston Univer- 
sity, Wilkes College and West Point. 

The Intercollegiate Debating Society is 
open to any student and the number 
of members is unlimited. To be active 
meinber, we expect attendance at meet- 
ings and being prepared to speak when 
called upon. No previous speaking ex- 
perience is needed f<Mr by the end of die 
year we will have you speaking like 
any of the older team members. 

We extend a warm welcome to all 
Freshmen and invite anyone to talk with 
our facidty advisor, Mr. Brinker, or with 
Bill Edmunds, Richard Funt, Harold 
Brubaker, Phil Kennedy or Don Cark- 
huff who are members of the debating 
team. 

POULTRY SCIENCE 
CLUB 

The Poultry Science Club extends its 
heartiest welcome to the students of 
the class of 1970. We hope that you will 
enjoy, and benefit, from your education 
here at Delaware Valley College. May 
your membership in our club prove to 
help you reahze all your college goals! 

Poultry interest at Delaware Valley 
has increasingly dwindled year after 
year since the Poultry major was discon- 
tinued a few years ago. In spite of this 
apparent disadvantage, the club has been 
able to maintain itself with support of 
varied types of agricultural students. 
Even a Chemistry major is a member, 
and even managed to become elected to 
an office. 

Last year, the Poultry Science Club 
managed to participate in the two most 
important interclub activities: Home- 
coming and "A" Day. At Homecoming, 
we displayed a large, over-sized micro- 
scope, with an equally sized egg; and 
a variety of live chickens. 

"A" Day is an equally important inter- 
club activity. Our club had an extensive 
display of a variety of poultry stock, 
including guinea hens, pigeons (including 
a valuable fantailed type), pairs of 
commercially used breeds of chickens, 
and a hundred cute little chicks. In addi- 



tion, tfiere were egg quality and poul- 
try disease exhibits, an incubator on dis- 
play, and an egg guessing contest with 
a large roast as the prize. 

During the year the club has dis- 
cussed many interesting topics, among 
them being food nutrition, show breeds 
of poultry (possibly the club may pur- 
chase a few breeds as a gift to the Col- 
lege ), egg incubation, chick breeding ( we 
even managed to get a brooder into 
working condition). We have practiced 
our skills in brooding by obtaining, 
through the year, several hundred cock- 
eral chicks free of charge, and raising 
them to rooster-hood. 

Homecoming will be the first item 
on the agenda, with many more inter- 
esting items to come. We hope to see a 
large Freshman tour-out to make the 
Poultry Club a truly great club. 

The Poultry Science Club is not stand- 
ing still. One enthusiastic member and 
officer, Ron Attarian, wrote in a recent 
edition (Nov. '65) of the Furrow: "We 
would . . . like to warn the major clubs 
that we are moving like wild-fire up the 
ranks, right to the TOP!" 

Ronald L. Schaefer 
President, the Poultry 
Science Club 

FOOD INDUSTRY CLUB 

Fellow Upperclassmen and Frosh: 

Welcome back to what the Food In- 
dustry Club hopes will be one of the 
best years, academically and socially, 
that D.V.C. will have. The Food Indus- 
try Club plans to bring in the new year 
with an agenda that would make any 
Aggie proud to be part of the Food 
Industry program. 

Already under consideration are new 
ideas which will enable club members 
to enjoy and profit from speakers, mov- 
ies and field trips, which are all related 
to Food Industry studies and interests. 
New members are always needed and 
welcome and we of the Food Industry 
Club know yoiur participation will be 
rewarding, constructive and pleasurable. 
Robert Gold 
President 

ANIMAL HUSBANDRY 
CLUB 

The Animal Husbandry Club, a newly 
affiliated member of the National Block 
and Bridle Club, wishes to extend a 
cordial welcome to the incoming fresh- 
men of D.V.C. 

As one of the largest clubs on campus, 
we indulge in various fields of interest 
to those interested in the study of live- 
stock. Club members participate in show- 
ing and judging livestock and attending 
annual field trips ie. Penn. State, Belts- 
ville-Maryland and Cornell, etc. 

At each of our bi-weekly meetings, 
interesting speakers or movies on the 
livestock industry or associated fields 
are arranged. Those Interested in sports, 
the Animal Husbandry Club has become 
a leader in intramural football, basket- 
ball and baseball. 

Thus, freshmen, the members of this 
club will be looking forward to your 
presence at our first meeting. 
Sincerely, 
Jon Slate, Pres. 

AGRONOMY CLUB 

In the past the Agronomy Club has 
been very active. There was the annual 
club banquet, a club trip, intramurals, 
meetings with movies or guest speakers, 
etc. We also took third place for our 
Homecoming float and had many displays 
for "A" Day. 



This year we have tried to line up an 
interesting speaker ot movie for each of 
our club meetings starting the first week 
of classes. Our first project will be the 
Homecoming float which has to be ready 
for the w^kend of October 8th. 

Space in the greenhouse is available for 
interested students. Last year there were 
some good projects and there is room for 
more this year. This year we are looking 
forward to even better intramural partici- 
pation than had last year. 

All Freshmen as well as an upperclass 
are invited to our meetings. 

DAIRY SOCIETY 

The successful activities of the Dairy 
Society last year prompts its members to 
look forward to playing an increasingly 
important role in the college life this year. 
With the implementation of its program 
in this new year, there is promise of the 
club being able to command a new 
position of respect and status on the 
campus. 

Among the highlights of last years 
activities was the opportunity to hear and 
associate widi many well-known people in 
the dairy industry. We were fortunate in 
being able to have these men share their 
experiences with us at our meetings. 
Among these were Mr. P. Q. Smith, 
manager of the Graterford State Prison 
Farm, speaking on profitable milk produc- 
tion. Mr. Earl Waltmeyer, successful dairy 
farmer, speaking on the topic. Aspects of 
Jugging Milk and one of our own 1965 
D.V.C. graduates, Mr. Jim Harteis, 
sharing his experiences as part of the 
IFYE Exchange program in Thailand. 

The annual banquet of the Dairy- 
Animal Husbandry Societies on December 
8, at the Plumsteadville Grange had Mr. 
Hinish as guest speaker. The agricultural 
situation in Pakistan became more mean- 
ingful to us as he related his experiences 
in this country. Needless to say, the food 
was superb. 

The first week in January saw many 
members working with the six Brown 
Swiss and four Holsteins shown at the 
State Farm Show. Not since 1935 has the 
college brought home so many ribbons as 
were awarded our stock this year. Awards 
were taken for the Grand Champion 
Brown Swiss Cow, Open Get of Sire, 
Dairy Herd Class, and the Aged Cow 
Class. 

In the spring four car loads of mem- 
bers traveled to Tara Hills Farm in central 
New York for the annual club trip. The 
herdsmen provided a tour of the/enowned 
Hobtein herd and gave an interesting talk 
on the pedigrees included in the herd. 

This year, as in the past, the objectives 
of the Dairy Society will be to increase 
club membership, plus better attendance 
at the meetings. It is a forgone conclus- 
ion that programs and activities that are 
interesting and informative will be neces- 
sary. The first big project for fall will be 
building a float for Homecoming. Here 
will be an opportunity for all members to 
put forth a cooperative effort to provide 
a good start for the year. Success in this 
venture will presage satisfying experi- 
ences for members later on in such activ- 
ities as A-Day, Farm Show exhibits, and 
club trips. An interesting and profitable 
years is possible if Society members make 
it so. 

DELTA TAU ALPHA 

by Edward Funkhauser 
The Delaware Valley College Chapter 
of Delta Tau Alpha would like to welcome 
the incoming freshmen to Delaware Valley 
College. Delta Tau Alpha is a national 
agricultural honor society for non-land 
grant colleges. It is a relatively new 



society, having its first national conven- 
tion in 1960. The primary purposes of the 
society are to recognize outstanding stu- 
dents in agriculture and promote the field 
of agriculture. 

The society has created an annual 
scholarship to be given to a D.T.A. mem- 
ber who is continuing his education by 
attending graduate school with an agri- 
cultural major. As a service to the student 
body, the society provides tutoring for 
the students who desire it. This year the 
society hopes to have speakers from 
various agricultural professions, a panel 
discussion of former D.V.C. students now 
attending graduate school, a banquet, and 
various other informative and interesting 
events. 

Althouf^ it isn't possible for freshmen 
to become members of Delta Tau Alpha 
because of the requirements, it is hoped 
that many of you will become eligible for 
membership. Our chapter is proud to have 
the largest chapter membership. 

ALPHA PHI OMEGA 

by R. Goodman 

With advent of the new school year 
comes a fresh start for APO. 

After a dismal beginning due to a lack 
of willing support and ineffective leader- 
ship much concern has arisen on a state 
level. District representatives and other 
APO officials and members made re- 
peated visits to our campus last spring 
to see if our pledge chapter cmdd be 
saved. 

Some of our goals and reasons for 
failure were discussed at the spring meet- 
ing. It was concluded that leadership and 
pubhcity were of key importance. 

Our leadership problem has been tem- 
porarily solv^ by provisional elections. 

This is our college's first recognized 
and approved fraternity and there are 
no penalties involved in joining as there 
are with the two existant underground 
social fraternities. 




BUILDING REPORT 

by Don Censemer 
The new dorms are completed and 
the students are well pleased with their 
new quarters. The modem style desks 
and spacious closets add to the feehng 
of home. The ultra-modem lighting fix- 
tures used throughout the building are 
a symbol of modem times and the soft 
beds are reminiscent of early UUnan. Of 
the many rooms available in these dorms 
only about 2/3 are occupied and the 
faculty is puzzled by the apparent re- 
luctance of the students to move into 
the new buildings.

SPORTS WRAP-UP 



SPRING SPORTS 
WRAP-UP 

by W. Dunscombe 

Our college spring athletic teams end- 
ed a chapter in our school's athletic his- 
tory, for they were the last teams to 
compete as members of the Delaware 
Valley Conference. I'm svire that all 
our athletes regret leaving the Del Val 
Conference, but on the other hand, all 
the boys are looking forward to the added 
challenge of the Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference. With the addition of many new, 
talented freshinen "rookies" and our 
returning letteAnen, the Aggies can look 
to the future with great expectations. 
Who knows, some day we might hear 
that Delaware Valley College is Number 
One in the M.A.C.il! 

Delaware Valley ended its participa- 
tion in the Delaware Valley Conference 
witii a highly successful spring sports 
season. The CoUege haid two conference 
championship teams, a conference run- 
ner-up team, and a track team note- 
worthy of praise. 

The D.V.C. tennis team concluded its 
season as the runner-up team to Confer- 
ence Champions Eastern Baptist College 
in the Delaware Valley Conference

The Aggies track team had an excel- 
lent season considering the strong cali- 
ber of competition they faced. Although 
their won-lost record was not exactly 
what Coach Linta would have liked, next 
year's team should make a very good 
showing in our debut in the Middle At- 
lantic Conference. Wayne Oppenheimer 
was awarded the Most Valuable Track 
Man Award. Wayne was a consistent win- 
ner in the 880 and mile races and also 
placed consistently in the two mile race. 
The Most Valuable Field Man Award 
went to big, six foot four inch, 275 
pound, William Cottrell. Bill was last 
year's captain and the team's shotputter. 
During his track career at D.V.C, Cottrell 
was undefeated in dual and triangular 
meet competition in four years!!! In 
addition to this. Bill holds the school's

highest team batting average. Dave com- 
pilfKi a .585 average by having 24 hits 
in 41 at bats. The Most Valuable Pitcher 
Award was presented to Bill Dunscombe.

addition to his 1.67 earned run average. 
The Most Valuable Player Award was 
given to Senior John Vaneschak. John, a 
young man with major league potential,

the captain of the team and also won 
the distinction of being named to the 
Little All- American Football Team. 

While coaching our maiden football 
team in the M.A.C., Mr. Di Francesco 
will be an assistant to head coach William 
"Bill" Craver. 

Mr. William J. Muir will be the new

he is completing work on his Masters 
in Communicative Arts. In addition to 
his duties as a coach, Mr. Muir will be 
an instructor in our English Department. 

Mr. John Silan will fill the head 
basketball coach job that was left vacant 
this spring, when Mr. Alan Hartley as- 
sumed the full time job as Director of 
Admissions. In addition to coaching the 
basketball team, Coach Silan will also 
serve as head baseball coach, Director of 
Sports Information and as a member of 
the Physical Education Department. 

Mr. Silan is a native of Rankin, Pa. 
He attended Penn State University and 
while in attendance there, he was a 
member of both the basketball and base- 
ball teams. 

Previous to coming to D.V.C., Coach 
Silan was Kutztown, Pa., High School's 
basketball and baseball coach. During 
his twenty years as a coach in high 
school, Mr. Silan amassed an almost 
unbelieveable basketbal recwd of 414 
wins and only 73 defeatsi!! Among his 
accomplishments in the realm of coach- 
ing, he boasts an undefeated 1959 season 
of 29 wins and no loses, three Class B 
State titles and many district and sec- 
tional titles. He also is noted for his 
participation in numerous basketball clin- 
ics. 

As far as baseball is concerned. Coach 
Silan also has a successful lifetime record 
of 143 wins and 84 loses. 

All of the coaches stated that they 
were happy and proud to be members 
of the Aggie's Coaching staff. They also 
expressed their hopes that all of our 
athletic teams have successful seasons, 
but were quick to add that the only 
real key to success is hard work, plenty 
of sweat, and a real desire to win. 



I'm sure that you all join with me 
in wishing all our coaches the best of 
luck during the coming year and hope 
that you will show your support for the 
Green and Gold by attending as many 
games as you can.

AGGIES UPSET LIONS! 



FOOTBALL 
SUMMARY, 
FALL '66' 

The Delaware Valley College football 
team at present has posted a record of 
3 wins and 2 losses. Both of the losses 
suffered were lost by slim margins, the 
loss to Lycoming being by the score of 
21 to 20, and last week's Homecoming 
Day loss to Wilkes by the score of 6 to 0. 

The Aggies kicked off their 1966 sea- 
son losing a real tough game to Lycom- 
ing, on the ground and also in the air, the 
only place Lycoming out did the Aggies 
was on the scoreboard and that was by 
a mere point. It was a tough opener for 
Coach Craver's boys, but showed the 
other members of the MAC that D.V.C. 
was a team to be reckoned with. 

Coach Craver was quick to praise the 
offensive running display of Dennis 
Shank, the blocking of Paul Quintavalle, 
and the whole offensive line for the fine 
pass protection given to Timko. It was 
this protection that enabled Timko to 
"drop into the pocket" and fire 5 com- 
pleted passes to both Harry Capozzoh 
ahd Joe Franchella. Craver added that 
the excellent pass defense of Pat Day 
and Greg Scott, along with the whole 
defensive line, led by big John Duffy 
and Don Stump, held Moravian to 5 first 
downs in rushing. 

Del Val next traveled to Haverford and 
in a teeming downpour trounced Haver- 
ford by the score of 26 to 0. The team 
was once again led by talented young 
Ron Timko who threw 2 touchdown 
passes and ran for another. By winning 
the game, Del Val now has a lifetime 
series record in football with the Fords 
of 3 wins and no losses. 

Quarterback Timko, seemingly un- 
aware of the rain and slippery condition 
of the ball, had an amazing day as he 
threw for 10 completions in 19 tries for 
a total of 164 yards. Timko's main run- 
ning back was Soph John Nice who 
scampered for 90 yards in 13 carries. 



CROSS COUNTRY 
RESULTS 

The Del Val "Harriers" dropped a 
double dual meet to Rider College, 17 to 
46, and to Lebanon Valley College 22 to 
33. The leading runner for the Aggies 
was fleet footed Ira Walker. Also placing 
for the Aggies were Wayne Oppenheimer 
5th, Donald Tantum 7th, Howard Hen- 
derson 9th and Richard Thurber 10th. 

Topping off a fine Parents' Day, the 
Cross Country team beat Albright 19-42 
and Philadelphia Textile 21-38. Once 
again the "New Brunswick Flash", Ira 
Walker, led the pack finishing first in a 
time of 24:49 for the Aggies 4.5 course. 

Finishing behind Ira were Lee Latshaw 
3rd, Wayne Oppenheimer 4th, Don Tan- 
tum 5th, and Dick Thurber 6th. With 
these two victories under their belts, Ned 
Linta's boys now have an overall record 
of 4 wins and 3 losses. 



Once again the Del Val defensive unit 
was the deciding factor of the game. The 
defensive surge was bolstered by three 
blocked punts, two of which were turned 
into scoring opportunities by the offensive 
team. Eugene Wallace, Greg Scott, and 
Dominick Cerchio blocked punts and 
also played tremendous defensive games. 
Eugene Wallace was voted the outstand- 
ing defensive lineman of the game. 

Delaware Valley lost a real heartbreak- 
er to Wilkes, co-leader in the Northern 
Division of the MAC. The game was 
played before the largest Homecoming 
Day crowd in the college's history. 

Once again the whole story of the game 
was the defense. The Aggies "energetic 
eleven" held Wilkes to only 4 first downs. 
The only score of the game came in the 
third quarter when Zakowski of Wilkes 
threw a 60 yard pass to Skvarla. This 
was the only score of the game. 



SPORTS SPOTLIGHT 

According to the latest statistics re- 
leased by the Middle Atlantic Confer- 
ence, our freshman quarterback Ron 
Timko is the leader in passing and total 
offense for the Northern Division. Ron's 
statistics read as follows: 45 out of 95 
passes completed for a total of 627 yards 
and a total offense of 600 yards for four 
games. 

Timko's number one target is Junior 
Joe Franchella. Joe who has been an 
outstanding player for the Aggies the 
last two years, leads the Northern Di- 
vision with 15 catches for 280 yards and 
three touchdowns. 

Big John Nice leads all rushers with a 
total of 209 yards in 47 carries. This 
combines to give John an average carry 
of 4.4 yards. In the third highest rushing 
average is our Dennis Lamm who has 
141 yards in 27 carries for a 5.4 average. 




Aggies . . 




The second half of the game found the 
Aggies "knocking" on the Wilkes end 
zone twice. The first drive ended on the 
five yard line, when the Aggies lost the 
ball on a fourth down pass play that 
was broken up by the outstretched hands 
of a Wilkes defender. In the closing 
moments of the game, again the Aggies 
were near "pay dirt". This time two key 
interceptions by Kane of Wilkes exting- 
uished the Aggies offensive spark. 

One of the "big" men of the days was 
Floyd Ritter who kept the Aggies in the 
game all day with his "educated" toe. 
Floyd gave a record breaking perform- 
ance by punting 8 times for 342 yards, 
giving him an average of 42.8 yards per 
punt for the afternoon. 



in Action 



On Homecoming Day, the Del Val 
Harriers won their second meet when 
they raced against Scranton University. 
The final score was 24 to 33. 

First place went to Scranton's Dick 
Prutsman who won the event with 25:05 
time for the 4.5 mile course. Placing sec- 
ond was the Aggies captain Ira Walker. 
Ira finished with a time of 25:21.4. Also 
placing for the Aggies were Wayne Op- 
penheimer, 4th; Dick Thurber, 5th; 
Howard Henderson, 6th; Don Tantum, 
7th; and Lee Strassburger, 10th. 

The bulk of the Harriers squad is com- 
posed of freshman. With a young team 
such as this, the Aggies can look forward 
to a successful finish of this season and 
also many more winning seasons in the 
MAC 



AGGIES ROLL OUT 
400 YARDS IN 
HOMECOMING 
GAME! 

Before 1800 Parent's Day fans, the 
"New Breed" Aggies defenated Albright 
College by the score of 14 to 10. The 
victory over Albright brought our team's 
record to 3 and 2 and dropped Albright 
out of a tie with Wilkes for the first place 
berth in the Northern Division of the 
MAC competition for this year. 

Delaware Valley's offensive unit was 
led by freshman quarterback Jimmie 
Smith. Smith guided the Aggies down 
the field in the second quarter and finally 
took the ball over the goal line on a 14 
yard option play which he executed per- 
fectly. Smith had a fine day in the air as 
he threw 19 passes and complt ted 12 of 
them for a total of 181 yards. Backfield 
Coach Christensen was very impressed 
with Smith's showing and ww full of 
praise for the outstanding )<Ai he did in 
place of ailing Ron Timko. 

The outstanding running back of the 
game was Dennis Shank. Dennis scored 
the winning touchdown for Del Val 
when he scored on an eleven yard run 
off left tackle. Dennis led all rushers as 
he compiled 101 yards in 24 carries. Also 
noteworthy was the job Jimmie Branch 
did in our backfield. Jimmie gained many 
valuable yards in the winning cause. 

Once again the big five of the defensive 
unit of the Aggies played an outstanding 
game. The big five of the defense were 
led by Bobby Smith, Ted Cottrell, Eugene 
Wallace, Edward Van Dom and Paul 
Quintavalle. These boys time after time 
brought the fleet Albright runners down 
with shattering tackles. Stan Sitarski was 
a standout in the defensive backfield as 
he batted down a number of Lion passes 
and broke up many more when he jarred 
the ball loose from the receiver with his 
timely tackles. The defense limited the 
Lions to a net of only 30 yards rushing. 

The Aggies out-gained the Lions as they 
rolled out 400 total yards as compared 
with the Lion's 126 yards. Del Val estab- 
lished a new school record as they amass- 
ed a total of 25 first downs. Soph Harry 
Capozzoli established a new school record 
by catching seven passes for 140 yards 
in one game. By virtue of catching these 
seven passes, he also set a school record 
by receiving 20 passes in a season and he 
still has 3 games to go. 

In their second game, Del Val traveled 
to Moravian and with a tremendous sec- 
ond half effort, beat Moravian by the 
score of 31 to 27. Coach Craver called it 
the greatest come from behind victory 
he had ever seen in football. Come from 
behind is exactly what the boys did. Early 
in the third quarter the Aggies were down 
by the score of 27 to 9. The offensive unit 
then came alive under the fine direction 
of freshman Ron Timko. The offensive 
attack ran up 22 points in the last half 
and left one very surprised Moravian 
team on the losing side of the scoreboard. 
The victory over Moravian marked our 
initial victory in the MAC.

"AM I SUPPOSED TO 
LIVE IN THERE?" OR 
OUR NEW DORMITORIES 

Richard Dunning 

On September 26th approximately 93 
D.V.C. students faced the dark reality 
tfiat they would have to live in an un- 
finished dorm. The students found their 
rooms without heat, without doors, with- 
out desks, without ceilings, and without 
electrical power except that supplying 
the lonely light bulb hung from the ceil- 
ing beams. 

Ehiring the same time period 93 dif- 
ferent students faced living in somewhat 
crowded conditions. At the present time 
these students are spread throughout the 
other dormitories, giving other fellows 
a third room-mate for a period of time. 

The yet unnamed dorms will contain 
two lounges, a television room, two vend- 
ing machine rooms, and a billiard and 
card table room. The T.V. room will be 
in dorm *2 ( closer to parking lot ) . Dorm 
'1 will house the billiard and card table 
room. No doubt, when completed, the 
dorms will be two of the better dormi- 
tories on campus. 

Now comes the subject you have been 
waiting to read about: why are the dorms 
not finished? In order to answer this 
question the reported talked ot Mr. James 
Rose and Mr. Joseph Fulcoly concerning 
the problem. 

Mr. Rose is the staff architect hired by 
the college and is "responsible for the 
planning of new buildings and campus 
improvement." According to Mr. Rose 
the buildings are not finished because 
of "the inability of the contractor and 
sub-contractors to obtain materials." Mr. 
Rose explained that there are a few main 
reasons why materials were difficult to 
bbtain. First and foremost, many im- 
portant materials are being bought by 
the government for our war effort in 
Viet Nam. Second, many other schools 
and colleges are expanding and all are 
trying to meet a deadline similar to ours. 
As a result there is a general material 
and labor supply shortage at this time. 
The shortage concerns mainly prefabri- 
cated materials such as doors, ceiling tile, 
toilet fixtures, etc., rather than raw ma- 
terials such as concrete and cement 
blocks. Third, many of the items had to 
be delivered from a long distance. 

Mr. Rose predicted completion of both 
new dorms in the last weeks of October. 

Mr. Fulcoly expressed similar opinions 
as to why the buildings were not com- 
plete. He added that a lack of materials 
for one phase of construction resulting in 
a delay, would halt the chain of 
events in the construction process. In 
other words, one phase of construction 
could not be started until another was 
finished. As an example the ceiling tile 
could not be put in until the insulation 
and wiring were installed. A delay in 
delivery of wire would cause a delay in 
ceiling installation. 

As for the lack of power for the first 
few days, Mr. Fulcoly explained that the 
transformer in the dormitory was water 
damaged during the severe rain during 
the week prior to registration. The trans- 
former was repaired and re-installed as 
K>on as possible. 

Fortunately for everyone, the spirit of 
toleration and cooperation was and re- 
mains excellent. Mr. Fulcoly, others in 
the administrative body, and even our 
own student government president, Dave 
Spinella, have been surprised at the co- 
operation, not only on the part of the 186 
students who are to hve in the new 
dorms, but also on the part of all students 
involved. 



If nothing else, the problem has showed 
the students one of the diverse situations 
life can inflict upon a person. The stu- 
dents involved in the situation will sur- 
vive; the reporter knows, he lives in the 
new dorm '1.

NEW MEMBERS OF 
THE ADMINISTRATION 

Tim Berman 

The two new members of the college 
administration enter the fold with back- 
grounds characterized by much exper- 
ience in their respective fields. 

Dean Allan C. Hartley, Director of 
Admissions, spent most of his teaching 
days doubling as a math and physics in- 
structor and basketball coach. He was 
bom in Lewiston, Maine, the youngest 
of 3 children, but soon afterwards his 
family moved to Stow, Massachusetts 
where he attended the high school there. 
He then went on to Tufts University, be- 
came active in a fraternity along with 
playing varsity basketball, and graduated 
in 1956 with a Civil Engineering degree. 
Two years in the Navy saw him rise to 
the rank of Lt. (j.g.) and Officer of 
Communications. From here, Hartley 
was on the move. Along with coaching 
basketball, he taught math and physics 
for two years at Pulaski Academy in New 
York State; did the same for the next two 
years at both Courtland High in Nev/ 
York and at Belmont (Mass.) High 
school; in between he attended 
Syrwnise University on a National Science 
Foundation grant, receiving his Master's 
degree in 1961. 

Before coming to Del-Val three years 
ago, Hartley married the former Beverly 
Steele in the summer of '63, and both he 
and his wife taught the following year at 
a naval base in the Philippines. Ehiring 
his first two years here, he was an assist- 
ant professor of math and a physics lab 
teacher, as well as serving as the head 
basketball coach. He was elevated to 
his present job in June of this year, and 
he is very pleased over having an import- 
ant position where as he said, in referring 
to the college, "my future is." The Dean 
and his wife reside in the Doylestown 
Apartments along with their 2V^ year-old 
daughter, Laurie. He is also one of three 
faculty advisors to the pubUcations' staff 
at the College. 

James A. Rose, IV — the College arch- 
itect — was bom in Everette, Pa., but was 
- raised in Philadelphia. After attending the 
Germantown Friends School, he served in 
Africa for the Army during World War 
II. Mr. Rose then studied architecture at 
North Carolina State School of Design. 
Upon graduating in 1952, he was em- 
ployed by several Philadelphia architec- 
twal firms before joining with Martin & 
Gilmore of Doylestown twelve years ago. 
With them, he was responsible for de- 
signing such campus buildings as Wolf- 
fohn, Bamess, Cooke, and Work Halls, 
as well as the new science building. In 
late spring of this year he began his job 
as official college architect. Rose is a 
member of the American Institute of 
Architects and is a Mason. Although he 
comes from the big city, he, his wife 
Mary, and their three children live on a 
farm in Telford, Pa.

FLOATS IN REVIEW 

John D. Martin 

All the campus clubs and organizations 
tried to out-do each other in preparing 
their floats this year. The result of much 
hard work over several weeks was evident 
in the originality and beauty of each 
entry. This year's theme was: Maturity, 
Ability, and Courage. Eight floats in all 
paraded through Doylestown on Friday 
evening. Coming in first in the judging 
on Saturday was the Ornamental Horti- 
culture Society's float, with its gay color 
and beautiful plant material. Second in 
the competition was the Science Club's 
float depicting the new Mandel Science 
building, complete even to the water 
tower in the background. Third place 
was captured by the Horticulture float, 
which was a riot of gorgeous-colored 
paper, with living statues to carry out the 
theme. 

Also entered in the competition were 
floats of the Block and Bridle Club, the 
Agronomy Club, the Dairy Club, the 
Food Industry Club, and the Business 
Administration Club. 

We congratulate all the clubs and 
organizations which participated, and 
applaud everyone who contributed his 
time to make these floats the success they 
were.

GLEE CLUB 

Robert Jones 

The Delaware Valley College Glee 
Club, while often overlooked, performs 
one of the most significant tasks of any 
club on our campus. Our aim is to serve 
the public by rendering many concerts 
throughout the Delaware Valley. In doing 
so it is our hope that we are able to make 
the public aware of the college, its fine 
faculty, and student body. While acting 
as ambassadors of the college, we are 
able to improve its relationship with many 
of those groups which will aid the col- 
lege in any way posible. At the same time 
we have discovered that the challenge of 
learning to work together as a group in 
preparing our programs is most reward- 
ing. 

The programs are always performed on 
a non-profit basis, and performed for 
non-profit organizations only, such as the 
Village Improvement Association, the Viet 
Nam War Hospital, Mercer Museum, 
and the Plumsteadville Grange. This year 
we hope to add two programs to our 
schedule, one of which may be rendered 
at Gwynedd- Mercy College. In addition 
to the programs rendered, we also give 
a spring concert at Central Bucks High 
School and a spring and fall concert 
here at the College. 

At the last business meeting the Glee 
Club elected two new officers, Ted Blew 
as treasurer and Jon Kline as A-Day 
representative. Plans for the possible 
recording of a program available to the 
student body as well as any other interest- 
ed group are being laid. 

Presently, the club has a membership 
of 35. While this number is sufficient for 
our performances, we feel that more 
depth could be added to our Tenor two 
and Bass one sections. We hope that any- 
one interested in becoming a part of this 
group will express his desires in the near 
future. Rehearsals are held every Wed- 
nesday from 7-9 P.M. and Sunday from 
9-10:30 P.M. Members of the group re- 
ceive credit towards their grad^. 



POULTRY 

BOWS 

OUT 

A. Ronald Attarian 

Hi, fans! This is the Poultry Science 
Club's last article. As of October 3, 1966, 
the P. S. C. is no longer. Delaware Val- 
ley College always hates to lose a club, 
but this is unavoidable. Ever since the 
poultry major was dropped a few years 
ago, interest in the Poultry Science Club 
has dwindled. Last year, we campaigned 
as much as possible to recruit new mem- 
bers, but there was simply no interest. 
All of last year's work, including the 
Homecoming float and A-Day prepara- 
tions, was done by two or three members. 
Since no prospective members have 
shown up this fall, we were forced to 
abolish the organization. 

As our final act, the three remaining 
members, Ronald Schaefer, Drew Watts, 
and Ronald Attarian, have decided to 
dedicate a tree and plaque in memory 
of Richard A. Bohl, Animal Husbandry 
major who graduated with the class of 
1966. Dick was killed in a tractor acci- 
dent in New Jersey this past August. 
Funds remaining in the Club treasury will 
be used to finance this dedication. 



THE HORT BOYS 
"MOVE our ONCE 
AGAIN ! ! 

Richard Funt and David Benner 

The annual field trip of the Horticul- 
ture Club took place in Adams County, 
Pennsylvania. After traveling 160 miles, 
die members visited the C.H. Musselman 
Company, a division of the Pet Milk 
Corporation. The members visited the 
different parts of the plant and were 
impressed with the volume of canned 
goods that was stored in their ware- 
houses. 

After the members traveled through 
part of the 17,000 acres of orchards, they 
visited a controlled atmosphere storage 
(the only one of its kind in the East) and 
the fresh fruit packing operation at the 
Mountain Orchard Co-op in As];)ers, 
Pennsylvania. After the tour the mem- 
bers wftre offered delicious apples and 
talked with the manager, John Peters, in 
his own office for more than an hour. 

The group moved on through more 
orchards of pears, peaches, plums, but 
mostly apples, and visited the Knouse 
Foods Corporation plant in Orrtanna. 
Here they were taken into the largest 
deep freezing room in the East which 
was at 18 degrees below zero. After stay- 
ing in this room for about ten minutes the 
chilled group went into the juice plant 
and observed the new machines for mak- 
ing apple juice. 

The group ended the trip by visiting 
the orchards at the home of David Ben- 
ner. His father spoke to the fellows as 
he drove us through his 200 acres of fmit 
trees by bus. Mr. Benner also gave much 
advice on herbicides, spray chemicals, 
tree spacings, and good orchard man- 
agement practices. 

The trip this year was tremendous as 
far as an outlook toward the fruit in- 
dustry is concerned. It certainly gave an 
education to the students who work with 
fruits as well as to those who are inter- 
ested in horticulture in general. The group 
feels that this trip will long be remember- 
ed.

SCIENCE 

The Society was brought into being to 
afford the members the opportunity to 
improve, academically, beyond the class- 
room; socially with the help of picnics, 
banquets and interesting field trips; and 
physically through our intramural pro- 
gram. 

Adhering to this policy the officers 
would like to welcome all the active 
members back and extend their apprecia- 
tion to the large number of freshmen who 
attended our first meeting. We would like 
to see this good attendance record kept 
up. i 

Our special thanks go to Kevin Keim 
and his crew for the marvelous job done 
on the Homecoming float. It was a great 
effort and well deserved the recognition 
it received. 

With Homecoming behind us, our ef- 
forts are now directed to making the an- 
nual faculty-student picnic a success. For 
the uninitiated, the picnic provides the 
student a chance to meet his professors 
on a more informal basis. Problems un- 
suited for the classroom can be brought 
up in this more conducive environment. 

This year the Society also plans to 
bring in a greater number of guest speak- 
ers, whose topics will range from grad 
school to laser beams. 

As a final note we would like to point 
out that all senior science majors are re- 
quired to present a project for A-Day. 
Since the science building will be fully 
operational in the spring, all members will 
be able to utiUze any of the new and 
sophisticated equipment for tfieir pro- 
jects.

Mr. Russo's appearance in this picture 
is not by chance. He was the man who 
supervised the erection of the weather

who makes daily temperature checks and 
keeps records of climatic changes record-

The first meeting of the Orn. Hort. 
Society was held on October 5, 1966. The 
officers and Mr. Blau enjoyed welcoming 
a large group of freshmen and extended 
an invitation to join the club. The busi- 
ness of the meeting was kept as short as 
possible because the boys had lots of 
work to do in preparing for Homecoming. 
The possibilites of going to Williamsburg, 
Virginia, were discussed and the meeting 
was adjourned. 
Homecoming Weekend— First Prize O.H. 

The members of the O.H. Society 
were pleased to hear from John Flemer, 
Float Committee chairman, that our float 
won First Prize at the Homecoming Day 
Float Contest. He noted that it was the 
second year in a row that O.H. has shown 
its outstanding abilities, and assured the 
club that the underclassmen have been 
trained in the methods used by O.H. in 
their annual conquest of the Homecom- 
ing Contest. 
Note From Senior O.H. Majors 

This year the senior O.H. class is 
rehabilitating the outdoor area between 
the greenhouses and the Hort. Building. 
Many hours of thought have been put 
into the design and it looks to be an 
interesting project that the boys are 
taking on. 

The O.H. seniors hope that their 
effort to beautify and maintain this area 
will be continued by other O.H. men as 
well as all students of this institution.

A PLEA TO ALL FOLK 
SINGERS 

M. Walton 

In the past few years the Contempory 
Club has tried to schedule amateur hoot- 
enannies composed of students from the 
college. While the first two met with 
great success, the third, which happened 
to be on "A Day" 1966, almost met with 
disaster. It was only through the dili- 
gence of two of the groups that the con- 
cert became a great success. 

It is the aim of the Contempory Club, 
again this year, to try and schedule a 
student hootenanny. Therefore, a plea is 
being sent out to all interested students 
to heed this call and contact either Mike 
Walton, 119 Work Hall, or Burt Bobbins, 
201 Work Hall, and inform them of your 
interest. The sooner the students get to- 
gether the sooner the club can start form- 
ing a creditable show. 

If you're worried about how well you 
play, don't. Through expert help from 
the Bucks County Folk Society and other 
students you will be able to play well 
enough to add your contribution. So don't 
hold back. Sign up now and help with 
something that will give you great self- 
satisfaction as well as presenting enter- 
tainment for others. 



SOIL CONSERVATION 

W. Winner 

The Delaware Valley College Student 
Chapter of the Soil Conservation Society 
of America has been very active in the 
past as it plans to be in the future. The 
Society has gained national and interna- 
tional recognition through its participation 
in the Soil Conservation Society's Na- 
tional Convention held in Philadelphia 
in August, 1965 when two students, 
members of the Delaware Valley College 
Chapter, presented papers, and when two 
other students again presented papers at 
the convention held in Albuquerque, New 
Mexico this past August. Past president, 
David Washko, also presented a paper 
at the First Pan American Congress Of 
Soil Conservation held in Sao Paulo, 
Brazil this past April. For this the So- 
ciety is very much in debt to the admin- 
istration for making the trip possible. 

The Society is very fortunate to have 
Dr. Prundeanu as faculty advisor. Prund- 
eanu is a member of the Student Chapters 
Committee of the National Organization. 
From this organization he has received 
the commendation award. Prundeanu 
was also just awarded a plaque by the 
Keystone Chapter of the Soil Conserva- 
tion Society of America for his work in 
the field of conservation. 

The future road for the Society is a 
bright one. An out door laboratory pro- 
gram is now being discussed and organ- 
ized in close cooperation with the Cen- 
tral Bucks School District. More reforesta- 
tion of the college grounds will be car- 
ried out this year. The Society plans to 
have several outstanding speakers and 
films this year at the meetings to add to 
the general education in the field of 
Soil Conservation. 

Under the direction of the new officers 
and a team effort by all Society mem- 
bers the club looks forward to another 
successful year. 

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

Robert Lindemann 

How well do you know your Student 
Government? 

If you are not already acquainted with 
the organization, you should make it a 
point to become acquainted! 

The Student Government of the Col- 
lege is the body governing all student ac- 
tivities. The purpose of this organization 
is to serve as a link between the Students, 
the Administration, and the Faculty in 
reaching decisions concerning various 
College activities. It has the responsibility 
of maintaining the traditions of the Col- 
lege. 

Elected representatives of the student 
body comprise the membership of the 
Government. Two are freshmen; three 
are sophomores; four are juniors; five are 
seniors. Each class president automatical- 
ly becomes a member of the Govern- 
ment, thus bringing the total member- 
ship to eighteen. 

A Student Court has been organized by 
the Student Government. The purpose of 
this court is to guide student observance 
of college and student government regu- 
lations and policies, as outlined in its 
penal code. 

Each of the Government members 
heads a committee which aids the stu- 
dent. Through the financial support of 
the Government these committees are 
able to sponsor activities for the enjoy- 
ment of the students. Some of these ac- 
tivities and entertainments include: 
weekly movies, mixers, T.V. rooms, and 
pool rooms. 

Your Student Government is working 
hard for you. Give it your support! 



ASSEMBLY MEETINGS 

Richard Funt 

The Assembly Meetings for this year 
are scheduled through a committee of the 
Student Government. It is the feeling of 
this committee and our advisor. Dean Ful- 
coly, that the assembly meeting should be 
of a calibre that all students will want to 
come. 

The next Assembly Meeting being 
scheduled for Wednesday, November 9th, 
at 3:15 P.M. will certainly prove to be 
an assembly that will not be forgotten. 

Mel Ehrin is an extraordinary musician, 
exciting pianist and entertainer. Arm- 
strong Cork of Lancaster is quoted, 
"Mel's clever act was paced so well that 
fifty minutes seemed like fifteen." Ro- 
tary International writes, "Your (Mel) 
performance was superb from beginning 
to end." 

"The Carradines" are scheduled for 
December 7th. This young couple enter- 
tain by giving a superb performance 
through small drama skits. 

These next two assemblies should 
prove tp be very interesting. 

A WELCOME TO THE 
CLASS OF 1970 BY 
THE HORT. CLUB 

M. Maganjo 

It is with great pleasure that the Hort- 
iculture Club welcomes the class of 1970 
to Delaware Valley College. The Club 
hopes that you, the members of this class, 
will find your stay at D.V.C. enjoyable 
and rewarding, and above all, that yoiu" 
goals for coming to college will be ful- 
filled. 

The Club would also like you to know 
that its meetings are always open to 
everybody interested. At these meetings 
films pertaining to agriculture are usually 
shown and guest speakers are also fea- 
tured. 

Every spring the Club takes an educa- 
tional trip to places of agricultural inter- 
est. In the past years such trips have 
been to Beltsville, Maryland, Adams 
County, Pa., and other places. Those who 
have been on those trips have always 
come back satisfied with the knowledge 
they acquired and happy that they took 
the trip. 

BUSINESS

Paul Fitch 
With the start of the new school year, 
the Business Administration Club is look- 
ing forward to what should be a very 
successful year. 

Our club is dedicated to the best inter- 
ests of the business students of Delaware 
Valley College. We welcome all fresh-

NEW FACULTY 



This year as we return again to D.V.C. 
we find that some fine teachers we have 
grown to know and admire have left the 
scene. We are sad indeed to see these 
men leave, but we are also very fortunate 
to have the following 17 new men who, 
I am s\ire will receive all the respect and 
admiration they deserve.

The birthplace of Mr. Di Francesco is 
Atlas, Pennslyvania, up in the coal mining 
regions of this State. His father worked in 
the mines to support a wife and a family 
of 12. He went through college on the G. 
I. Bill and played football and other 
sports while there. Di Francesco is not 
only a sportsman, but also an educator. 
He taught business at Roxborough 
High School and has coached at Susque- 
hanna University. Di Francesco came to 
DVC because of Coach Graver's excel- 
lent record and because of the school's 
excellent reputation. His philosophy of 
life is, "Do what you feel you were meant 
to do and do it to the best of your ability." 



FLOYD RITTER 

THE TUMULT AND 
THE SHOUTING 

Howard Reed Heritage 

The freshmen marched through town, 
Ian and Sylvia sang by Lake Archer, 
Alumni and students danced around 
Sidney Neumann Gymnasium, and the 
Aggies couldn't score. That was the 1966 
Homecoming weekend. 

The Aggies played an impressive de- 
fensive game, but the L.A. Dodgers 
showed more scoring punch against the 
Orioles than the Aggies could come up 
with against Wilkes College. At times the 
backfield looked as if they couldn't have 
run through the new dining hall. It wasn't 
until the last quarter that the offensive 
really came to life behind some fine ball 
handling by Jim Smith and the passing of 
Ron Timko. But they couldn't come up 
with the big play to give Floyd Ritter a 
chance for a game-winning extra point. 
Floyd has to be the outstanding back of 
the game. The 145 lb. junior's punting 
kept DVC out of trouble all afternoon. 
At one stretch he got off three consecu- 
tive punts measuring 57, 59, and 61 
yards. Some days the NFL doesn't see 
that kind of punting. 

The An. Hus. rocket got farther than 
the Wilkes ball carriers did against the 
fine Aggie defense. Outstanding work 
was turned in by the entire unit all after- 
noon, even the Cowboy's defense gave up 
a TD to the Eagles, you can't expect the 
defense to do the whole job. I have to 
pick Ted Cottrell and John Duffy as the 
outstanding Hneman of the game. The 
two Sophomores were knocking down 
Wilkes' ball carriers all afternoon. 

If the offense can come back and play 
as they did in their earlier games, the 
Aggies should have a winning season in 
1966. 

Aggie Action: Bill Cottell '65 is playing 
for the Richmond Rebels of the Con- 
tinental League, while drawing a pay 
check from the Detroit Lions . . . Greg- 
ory Scott came out of nowhere to stop 
a couple of end runs by Wilkes . . . 
Wally Bunker, Jim Palmer, and Dave 
McNally; the stars of the World Series 
are the same age as most DVC juniors 
and seniors . . . Coach Graver seems to 
have the team in fine physical condition 
. . . overheard one of the alumni com- 
menting on a DVC student's remark 
that the Aggies played a good game, "As 
years go by people don't remember how 
well you played, only if you have won or 
lost!"

THE FURROW 



Vtt^UiHf '66-67 

Richard Funt 

With four varsity team members re- 
turning this fall, The Delaware Valley 
College Debating Society has the ability 
to be one of the top small college teams 
of the nation. 

Harold Brubaker '69 is one of the re- 
turning team members. This outstanding 
speaker returns this fall having the high- 
est scores in Delaware Valley's history. 
In one debate where a debator may get 
30 points, Harold scored 29 points in 
a debate at the University of Long 
Island. 

Phil Kennedy *69 returns with another 
outstanding record. Phil stands right 
along with Harold and ranks second in 
the total number of points on the team. 

Bill Edmunds '68 returns also this fall 
to enter his first debate. Bill looks prom- 
ising and may be one of our strongest 
contenders. 

In looking over the team, I believe that 
with some good contests ahead the team 
can become a very strong and versatile 
group. 

Our topic for this season is Resolved: 
That the United States should substantial- 
ly reduce its foreign policy commitments. 

Anyone who wishes to join the Society 
may see Mr. Brinker or watch for an an- 
nouncement coming out the week of Oc- 
tober 17th. 



ATTENTION MUSICIANS! 

October 15, was a day for Delaware 
Valley College to remember, for on that 
day heavily favored Albright College 
fell, and Coach Bill Craver walked away 
with a fcK>tball, symbolic of his drive, and 
of the team's effort toward that day when 
the Aggies can win the M.A.C. college 
championship. Let us hope this year is 
the beginning. 

But October 15, Parents Day, wns also 
a day when Mr. John Dunphy and the 
D.V.C. band stood alone on the field to 
play and march, knowing that they could 
not hope to match Albright's band. The 
men in the band all know that there are 
many students within our student body 
who would like to join, but for st)me 
reason don't. It is indeed a brave thing 
to perform when you know you should 
and could be better. Under Mr. Dunphy's 
direction, the band has really progressed, 
and with the support of the student body 
it will continue to do so.

DiUWARI VALLEY COUEGE of Scionco and Agricultwro 



Novombor, 1966 



Undergrad Wins National Honor 



Brubaker elected FFA 
Vice President 

The reward of six long years of hard 
work came to Harold Brubaker, a mem- 
ber of the sophomore class. He was 
recently elected to the national office of 
North Atlantic Regional Vice-President 
of the Fututre Farmers of America. This 
region which is composed of 12 states will 
be his domain for the 1966-67 term. 

In order to attain this office a boy must 
have met a mininmum of 17 qualifications 
all of which Harold has exceeded greatly. 
Some of these qualifications are; at least 
three years of vocational agriculture, pre- 
vious acquisition of all local and state 
degrees in the organization, active mem- 
bership in the organization for three yean 
continuously, an outstanding diversified 
farming program and outstanding leader- 
ship activities. Also, the candidate must 
hold the American Fanner Degree, the 
highest p<»sible depee in the organi- 
zation. 

During his high school years, at Done- 
gal High School, in Mount Joy, Pa., 
Brubaker served one year as chapter par- 
liamentarian, one year as chapter trea- 
surer, and one year as chapter Vice- 
President. During the 1963-64 term, he 
served as county Vice-President. With 
the great emphasis that Harold has always 
placed on good public speaking, it is no 
surprise that he made a special project of 
coaching under-classmen in this area. The 
following year, he was elected to the office 
of State Secretary. In this capacity Bru- 
baker did many things for his State 
Association, one of which was to serve as 
a delegate to the 1^5 National F.F.A. 
convention which is held annually in 
Kansas City, Missouri. Another of his 
important accomplishments was getting 
Governor Scranton to sign a proclamation 
designating National F.F.A. Week. 

In activities outside of the F.F.A., 
Harold had many accomplishments. The 
Pennsylvania Association of Farmers 
Cooperative in 1962 selected him over 
10,000 applicants to represent this state 
at the A.I.C. conference at Ohio State 
University. For tlw two following years, 
he served on the Pa. A.I.C. executive 
committee. In 1963 he was selected to 
serve as Pa. representative at the National 
Youth Power Congress where he was 
chairman of numerous meetings. Last 
year, Brubaker represented the State 
F.F.A. Ass'n at the annual NEPPCO 
Poultry Show where he was a keynote 
speaker. During the same year, he 
delivered 57 speeches to farm organiza- 
tions, civic clubs, hi^ school assemblies, 
and F.F.A. Parent and Son Banquets. 

When Brubaker graduated from High 
School in 1964 he ranked 13th in a class 
of 139 students. At that time, he was 
awarded the Dekall Agriculture Accom- 
plishment Award, the Witness Oak 
Traveling Trophy, outstanding Agricul- 
tural Scholastic Award, Outstanding Stu- 
dent Award, and a gold star for develop- 
ing a new and different yearbook as its 
editor-in-chief. Lancaster newspapers 
selected him as "teen of the week" aikl 



the Mount Joy Rotary Club chose him as 
Boy of the Month. 

In addition to F.F.A., Brubaker held 
many 4-H club offices. He is aim a 
member of these organizations: AgricuV 
ture Cooperative Council for Lancaster 
County; county, state and National Hol- 
stein Breeden Associations, county and 
National Brown Swiss Breeders Associa- 
tion, the Lancaster County Dairy Herd 
Improvement Association, the Lancaster 
County Dairy Herd Improvement Asso- 
ciation, Atlantic Breeders Cooperative, 
Agway, and the Pennsylvania State Farm 
Show Committee.

New Science Building 
Nears Completion 

The new science building, Mandell 
Hall, is rapidly nearing completion. This 
$1.2 million facility is named after Samuel 
P. Mandell, member of the Board and 
Vice President of Food Fair Stores, Inc., 
through whose generosity the building 
was made possible. 

Mandell Hall has an auditorium, many 
labs, various class rooms, and offices. The 
auditorium is complete with stage, pro- 
jection room, acoustical tile and lifting 
facilities. Also on the first floor are the 
Food Industry laboratories and two 
Chemistry laboratories. For the F. I. >de- 
partment there is a regular lab augmented 
by a food processing pilot plant. Chemis- 
try is divided between the two floors. On 
the first floor will be the Organic Chem- 
istry lab., and the Analytical lab. A bal- 
ance room will be accessible to Ae Chem. 
labs., and will contain twelve fast- 
weighing and modem scales. The Physi- 
cal Chemistry lab. with its instrument 
room is on the second floor. Four Biology 
labs, the Physics lab. aiui classrooms com- 
plete the "200" floor of Mandell Hall. 

Plans for the new building were de- 
veloped from recommendations from the 
departments and based on need. Mr. 
Adelson put much of his time into the 
planning of the building. (Shortages and 
delays were numerous.) 

Mandell Hail is truly a most significant 
addition in the science area to D. V. C. 
As Dr. Orr said "(Mandell Hall) . . . U 
a tremendous shot in the arm for science 
and for the college .... we're expanding. 
The new installation and its equipment 
cure the problems of the present facilities, 
especially the l^k of q;>ace." 



The Big 
Brother Program 

The possibility of a Big Brother pro- 
gram at Delaware Valley College was re- 
cently presented to the Student Govern- 
ment. The idea was referred to commit- 
tee, and within a week, the findings of 
the committee were reported back to the 
government. 

The final draft of this plan, for the 
implementation of this pro^rram has now 
been seen. The only remaining element 
is the "Big Brothers". 

I would like to urge all interested 
juniors and seniors, as well as sophomore 
business majors, who possess a strong 
interest in our college, and have asserted 
an effort to understand it, to avail them- 
selves of the opportunity this program 
offers. You will be assigned several fresh- 
men, and asked to introduce yourself to 
them. In order to maintain your position 
in a responsible manner, it is abo re- 
quested that you contact them periodical- 
ly, perhaps once a month. 

It may well be that all the freshmen 
assigned to you are especially well-adjust- 
ed, as most are. In this case, your involve- 
ment will be very minimal. Then again, 
a very small amount of effort on your 
part could possibly solve a problem that 
is of paramount importance to an aggres- 
sive young freshman. (Have you ever no- 
ticed that with one change, the first 
five letters of "aggressive", spells "Ag- 
gie"?) It is my belief that in many cases, 
the Big Brother will gain more satisfac- 
tion from this program than the freshman. 

In the future, we hope to assign an 
accepted freshman to a Big Brother in the 
spring before his arrival. In this way, 
it will be possible for you to correspond 
with him during the siunmer, and greet 
him on registration day. Wouldn't you 
have appreciated at least one acquaint- 
ance when you arrived to start your fresh- 
man year? 

As an upperclassman, I ask you to give 
this program your sincere consideration, 
and then, sign upl There is certainly no 
risk, or sacrifice on your part, and there 
is a strong possibility tfiat this may pre- 
sent a great opportunity. An opportunity 
for you to do your part in making Dela- 
ware Valley College a better place in 
which to live and learn. 




State Senator 
Staisey Speaks 
Before Students 

On November 1, 1966, the Sidney 
Neumann Gymnasium was to set the stage 
for a speech by Democratic candidate for 
governor, Milton Shapp. Shapp was due 
to arrive at the Delaware Valley College 
campus by helicopter at 10:00 a.m. but 
due to turbulent weather and heavy log, 
the helicopter landed at the Doylestown 
Airport. From there, the campaign com- 
mittee drove to the campus. 

As members of the student body> 
faculty, and local citizens filed into the 
gymnasium, the Democratic committee 
prepared themselves for the pragram. 
After a welcome by Dean of Students 
Joseph Fulcoly, Senator Staisey, candi- 
date for lieutenant-governor, was intro- 
duced. 

Senator Staisey announced regretfuUy 
that Milton Shapp would not be able to 
attend the program due to illness. He 
went on to discuss some of the campaign 
issues of which Milton Schapp was in 
favor. Staisey announced that during this 
last third of the century the people of 
Pennsylvania as well as the total American 
population would face many new frontiers. 
He continued by saying, "Everything is 
equated in dollars and cents," and 
"the key to this equation lies in the 
advanced education of young people." 
Staisey terminated his speech by saying 
that financial aid to education Mrill be one 
of the important issues in the election. 

Mr. Wekh, chairman of the committee, 
then presented the campaign manager for 
Milton Shapp who further stressed ad- 
vanced education for high school gradu- 
ates at all scholastic leveb. He stated, 
"Those who fear to venture forward in 
higher education or deny poor ymith the 
opportunity to go on, have no purpose in 
this part of the century." 

The formal speeches then closed and 
the members of the committee were pre- 
sented with questions from members of 
the Contemporary Club. President of the 
Contemporary Club, Joel Martin, was 
chairman of the debate and was assisted 
by other members of the club. All ques- 
tions of debate were directed to Senator 
Staisey. Following the brief debate, ques- 
tions from the audience were permitted. 

Following the termination of the pro- 
gram. Senator Staisey was lifted from 
the campus by a helicopter which took 
off from the field in front of Work Hall. 

On November 2, 1966, at 3:15 p.m., an 
assembly was presented in the Sidney 
Neuman Gymnasium. The guest speaker 
was Edward C. Biester. Jr., Republican 
candidate for Congress.

About the F.F.A. 

by Robert J<»ies 

In 1917 under the National Vocational 
Act, (»ur^ in vocational agriculture were 
estal^shed. From the very beginning the 
boys who were enroQed in these courses 
in the various states felt a spirit of com- 
radeship and leadei^hip because of their 
background of country Ufe and their 
desires with regard to furming as a 
vocation. 

The spirit of these boys to became 
leaders led to die development of agricul- 
tural clul» throughout the country. 
Croups adopted such names as Junior 
Fanners, Young Farmers, and Future 
Fanners. The natural tendencies and 
inh^-^t of all these groups were abng 
die same line and thus warrant^ tfie 
erection of state organizations. Between 
the years 1923 and 1928 great work was 
done along these lines and the realization 
of the desires for a National organization 
came to the minds of many. 

The Future Farmers of Am^fea was 
established in 1928. Thirty-three dele- 
gates representing 18 states attended this 
first ctmvenHon held in Kansas City, Mo., 
where Leslie Appelgate of New Jersey 
was elected Resident, Dr. C. H. Lane of 
Washington D.C. was electa National 
Advisor, and Mr. Henry CwKeclose of 
Virginia the first National Executive Sec- 
retary. Ten memben received the Ameri- 
can Farmer Oepee. Dues for National 
me.mbership were set at 10 cents per 
member and have since rranained the 
same. 

The second convention was attended 
by sixty-four delegates from 33 states. 
Twenty-nine members were bestowed the 
American Farmer Degree and the first 
Star Fanner of America honors were 
bestowed on Carlton Patton of Arkansas. 
National blue and corn gold were selected 
as the official colors; the first National 
Public Speaking Contest, the performance 
of the Ohio State Band, and die adoption 
of the Official Creed highlighted the 
diird ccmvention. 

About 6,000 memben, advisors, and 
fri^ids registered for the 10th National 
Convention held in the Kansas City Muni- 



cipal Auditorium. By thu time there was 
over 100,000 members and 4,000 memben 
in 49 chartered states. The national was 
revised for the third time to permit the 
nomination of American Farmers on a 
basis of one boy per 1,000 or a major 
fraction ther^f . 

In 1939, the organizatkm purchased 
2S% acres of land, and established the 
National F.F.A. Camp. By 1941, when 
Dr. W. T. Spanton became national ad- 
visor, 245,830 members were i^resen- 
tatives of 7,542 chapters. In 1944, the 
Future Farmers of America Foundation 
Inc. was founds. 1946 Victory Conven- 
tion celebrat«l the end of World War II 
and featured a manorial program honor- 
ing F.F.A, members who served in the 
Armed Forces. 

In the years to follow, there were many 
outstanding accomplishment of the 
group, some of which were: Organizatior 
of the National F.F.A. Band in 1947, es- 
tablishment of the Future Farmers sup- 
ply Service, the official calendar, National 
F.Fj^. week. National Officers Good- Will 
Tour to visit donors of flie organization, in 
1948. Also, established in 1948 was the 
Educational Exchange I^p^am betw^n 
F.F.A., and the National Federation of 
Young Farmew Clubs of Great Britain. In 
1951, the National Congress pass^ Pubhc 
Public Law 740, which granted the 
F.F.A. a Federal Charter. Delegates of 
die 1952 C<mvention adopts the National 
Future Farmer Magazine. In 1953, a 
special pc^tage stamp was issued by the 
U.S. Post Office department U) com- 
moncnrate the fcmnding of die F.F.A. 

A special r^olution adqpted at the 
1955 convention pledged the F.F.A. to 
help develop better understanding be- 
tween nations. The results of this program 
has resulted in organizations of Future 
Farmera in Japan, Philippine Islands, 
Thailand, Taiwan, Peru, Columbia, Costa 
Rica, Ethiopia, and Mexico. Cooperative 
work with the Peace Corps began in 1963 
with an FFA/NFA Project in West 
Pakistan. 

At the present time there are over 450 
members in the F.F.A., and 8,372 chap- 
ters. Members continue to serve on local, 
state, national, and intematicmal levels. 



Brubaker Elected 

(Continued from page 1) 

Brubaker 's diversffied farming program 
is conduct^ in %veral fields of agricul- 
ture. He maintain^ a dairy herd of 20-25 
head of cattle which he started while in 
his freshman yeaa in hi^ school. In 1964, 
he had four grand champions, three 
reserve champions, two Juntor champions, 
and one reserve champion bull. His herd 
yielded 23,000 pounds of milk, and more 
than 800 pounds of buttterfat. 

He haa raised 12,000 broilers at a time 
ai^ between 25 ami 30,000 in the 
past year. Brubaker's poultry business is 
unique in that he raises a special kind of 
broiler for the New York City market for 
which he receive a guaranteed price. 
Unlike the fluctiiating market usually 
connected with broiler marketing, he is 
consistent. 

His field cto^ include com, hay, and 
tobacco. 

Before jeceiving die American Farmar 
degree, Harold had won other awards 
including State Dairy Judging Champion 
at Pennsylvania University in 1W2, Hol- 
stein Boy of year. County Star Farmer in 
1964. Regicmal Star Farmer, State Star 
Farmer, and North Atlantic Regional 
State Star Farmer; an honor received at 
the Eastern States Expositimi at Spring- 
field, Mass. 

As North Atlantic Regional Vice- 
President, Harold will travel well over 
50,000 miles, and give hundreds of 
speeches to promote vocational agricul- 
ture and the F.F.A. The most important 
of his duties will be speaking, and work- 
ing with thousands of youth at State 
Conventions and Leadership Training 
Conference. In doing this, Brubaker 
hopes to inspire others to continue their 
education, and take advantage of F.F.A. 
training to develop competent leadership, 
citizenship, and patriotism. 

In January Harold and his fdlow 
officers will devote several weeks to a 
Good- Will Tour, where they will meet 
hundreds of leaders of busings, industry, 
service clul^, education, and other (nrgani- 
zations who support the National F.F.A. 
Foundation. 



To fulfill all of these duties, it will be 
nec^»ary fa- Brubaker to disomtinue his 
education for his sophomore year at the 
end of the fi«t semester. While this is a 
great sacaifice I am sure that Harold is 
more than willing to do it. Hie rewanls 
that he will gain from his experiences 
during the next year can hardly be 
enumerated, or evaluated in any denc»ni- 
nation of material ^«^th. Such an ex- 
perience as diis is something that m<^ 
any boy v^mkl dream of having happen 
to himself. The hi^ position of National 
Office in F.F.A. is the dream of every 
true member of the organizaticMn, 

Anyone who knoinm Harold Brubak^, 
and has been associated with him in any 
way realizes that he is more than capable 
of fulfiUing his duties. From noting all 
that he has doi^ to earn the position I 
mi^t say that he more than deserves it, 
and I am sure that we all wish him the 
greatest sucess and pleasure as he seti out 
to perform one of the most honor^ roles 
of an American youth. 

Frosh at Waterloo 

Larry Cerber and Hide Campbell, 
members of the class of 1970 attended 
the Nation Dairy Judging Contest at 
Waterloo, Iowa, this past Sei^mber. 

Larry was a member c^ ^ York 
County Judging Team repre^nting Pa. in 
the 4-H division. He was pla<%d fourth 
individual in the nation for judging ai»] 
second in the nation fw oral and written 
reasons. His team ranked thin! in the 
nation. 

Hale Campbell, of the Hackettstown 
Chapter F.F.A., represent^ New Jrasey 
Jersey in the Future Farmers of America 
division of contest. Hale was placed third 
in the nation, in both dairy judging, and 
dairy products, wirming a bronze pin. 

Both Larry and Hale are planning to 
major in dairy husbandry next yeaa. This 
^ould be a good sign for future D.V.C. 
judging teams.

Animal Husbandry 
Judging Team 1966 

by Barry Blithe 

On September 14, 1966, the Animal 
Husbandry Judging Team left for the 
Eastern States Livestock Exposition in 
Springfield, Massachusetts. On the way 
to Springfield the team stopped at An- 
kony Farms, and Sir Williams Farm for 
some practice judging. 

At Springfield the team came in third, 
behind Pennsylvania State University and 
Michigan State University. 

On November 7, 1966 the judging team 
left from Delaware Valley College for the 
University of Maryland for a practice 
judging trip before judging at the Penn- 
sylvania Livestock Exposition in Harris- 
burg on Thursday the 10th, and then at 
Timonium, Maryland, for the Eastern 
National Livestock Show on the 12th of 
November. 

The judging team will leave Thanks- 
giving Day for the International Liv^tock 
Exposition in Chicago, lUinois. At the 
International the judging team will com- 
pete against the top Agriculture Colleges 
in the United States. 

This year's Animal Husbandry Judging 
Team is made up of Seniors John Kim- 
mett, Jon Slate, Andre D. Miller, George 
Corless, George Steele, Al Naggie, and 
juniors Frank C. Corbin, Roger Van 
Teyens, Cliff Cortelyou, and Todd M. 
Reardon. 

Science Society 

by J. Lammers 

We're one of the largest clubs on 
campus! Over 80 members! Only trouble 
is, most of them haven't learned the secret 
of overcoming inertia. Have you seen our 
intramural record? If 65 members can 
turn out for a picnic, why can't 12 find 
time for a football game. Let's get with it. 

Among Society plans for the year is the 
distribution to members of a list of those 
willing to contribute some of their time 
to tutor any students who need help, and 
if you make it over that hurdle we're 
looking toward grad. school. A graduate 
sciiool admissions officer is being sou^t 
as a speaker for one of our meetings. 

And now that you've heard what the 
officers are doing for you, how about 
turning the tables and helping us with 
intramurals. 



Hort Seniors Tour 
El Vista Orchards 

by Mwangi Maganjo 

It has been said that observation and 
practical experience are two of the best 
ways of learning. No one can attest to this 
better than the senior Hort. majors who 
visited the El Vista Orchards, owned 
by the Benners, on October 27. 

There the group was able to observe 
the various cultural practices of excel- 
lently maintained orchards, David Benner 
explained the ^ray schedule they follow, 
the problems that arise in such a huge 
acreage of fruit trees, and also answered 
the numerous questions with which he 
was bombarded. 

At noon the group enjoyed a delicious 
lunch served by Mrs. Beiuier. Shortly 
after, the group went to newly built and 
well equipped storage and packing houses 
where they had the opportunity to operate 
a modem apple grading machine. 

Having graded and packed some 
apples, the group engaged in some 
discussions pertaining to fruit production. 
The discussions included the problems 
faced by the fruit grower, marketing of 
the fruits, and a wide range of oth^ 
related subjects. The knowledge the group 
gained is invaluable.

Need a little money this week end? 
Are you driving home, or maybe you 
need a ride home? Well, our fraternity 
has done some research in this area. 
Thanks to our resourcefulness and con- 
cern for our fellow students, we have 
devised a trip board. The trip board con- 
sists of a large map and reference cards. 
The reference cards will be of two types; 
those pertaining to persons wanting rides 
and those pertaining to persons supplying 
rides. On these cards will be information 
such as name of person, destination, week 
end ride wanted or supplied and also tiie 
cost of transportation. A suitable location 
for the trip board will be found and 
announced. We would appreciate your 
cooperation in making this project worth- 
while for all. iTie trip board is only one 
of the many projects which Alpha Phi 
Omega has in store for the student body. 

Alpha Phi Omega even though rela- 
tively new on our campus is doing well. 
We have a membership of about thirty- 
five, all hard working and all dedicated 
to the principles of leadership, friendship, 
and service. 



The Agronomy Club Citcie % Qlui: 



by JOSEPH ROTHSCHILD 

On November 3, 1966, the members of 
the Agronomy Club were entertained 
with the showing of two films. The first 
was on agriculture in the Soviet Union, 
and the second was on the development 
of better grass seeds in the United States. 

The film on agriculture in the Soviet 
Unon dealt with the crops and amount 
of production of the crops in certain areas 
of that country. The film also showed the 
progress which the Soviet Union has 
made in development and use of better 
machinery. The film also pointed out that 
the Soviet Union has set a goal: to obtain 
the same amount of production as that of 
the United States. But the film abo 
pointed out that the Soviet Union has 
many more years to go to be able to 
catch up to the United States, if it is 
ever able to. 

In the second film the problem of for- 
age crops was discussed. The need for 
better seed is so great that we must do 
extensive research to be able to feed the 
Uvestock adequately. The film showed 
very elaborately how this was all being 
done. Experimental stations are working 
on crossing different strains to get a much 
stronger and durable hybrid. Also, the 
film showed the farmer's role in providing 
forage crops. 

All in all, the evening was very enter- 
taining and educational.

llie Circle K Club on campus is a 
member club of Circle K International, 
which is composed of more than 640 
clubs throughout the United States and 
Canada. The club is sponsored by the 
Kiwanis Club of Doylestown and func- 
tions primarily as a service organization 
on campus. 

Despite a relatively small membership 
this year the club plans on undertaking 
several events and activities with which 
it has been affiliated in recent years. The 
Blood Bank, scheduled this year for Dec. 
5, is perhaps the most widely known ac- 
tivity which the club has undertaken. 
Grammar school students, cub scouts, 
etc., will again this year be given guided 
tours of the campus and farms by the 
members of the club. Tentative plans 
have also been made for the purchasing 
of trash containers to be placed at con- 
venient locations throughout the campus. 

Delta Tau Alpha 

Last spring the local chapter of Delta 
Tau Alpha sent Edward Funkhouser as a 
delegate, and Alan Shimp as a representa- 
tive, to the National Convention at South- 
eastern Missouri State College in Cape 
Girardeau, Missouri. Their trip was sub- 
sidized in part by the college. 

Many interesting topics were discussed 
and many interesting ideas were ex- 
changed. Delegates came from colleges 
located in many parts of the country. 



Delta Tau Alpha First ^efat^Hg 



On October 13, the Delta Tau Alpha 
held their first meeting of the year. In at- 
teiKlance were the old members plus the 
new candidates. 

The first order of business was to in- 
duct all prospective members. All applica- 
tions were filled out and all prospective 
members accepted by the standing mem- 
bers. 

This year the Delta Tau Alpha is plan- 
ning two awards to be given to the 
students of D.V.C. Qualifications for the 
awards are being decided upon by a 
special committee. 

It is interesting to note that the D. V. 
C. chapter is, and has been, the largest 
chapter of D. T. A. It is hoped that this 
will continue to be true. It is also hoped 
that the D. V. C. chapter will be the 
best chapter of D. T. A. 





by RICHARD FUNT 

In studying or preparing for our debate 
topic, resolved; that the United States 
should substantially reduce its foreign 
policy commitments, the debating team 
finds many pages of material to be di- 
gested and definitions and terms to be 
understood. 

In the world today, the United States 
is committed to the defense of 42 coun- 
tries located around the globe. Therefore, 
our present commitments are costly and 
greatly involve our country. Many people 
are of the opinion that we should reduce 
our foreign defenses and give more fi- 
nancial aid to India, South Korea and 
Thailand. 

The negative side believes that foreign 
aid and alliances have stopped the spread 
of communism, and should be continued 
without serious reduction. We must con- 
tinue our foreign policy commitments at 
their present level because this is the only 
way to protect freedom in today's world. 

What do you believe? If you were 
challenged with this topic, which side 
would you take? Just remember you 
should be able to back what you say, 
arwl if you can, then come and debate 
with the team. Just make anangements 
with any member or see "Coach" Brinker.

<^Cpka PAi Omega 

by Harvey Goodwin 

Alpha ]Wii Omega, National Service 
Fraternity, has been organized on the 
campus of D.V.C. OflBcers of the club 
were elected and are as follows: President, 
Thomas Elam, a junior; First Vice Presi- 
dent, Kirk Anderson, a junior; second 
Vice President, Ralph Farquhar, a sopho- 
more; Secretary, Hank Euler, a sopho- 
more and Treasurer, Bill Lockridge, a 
junior. 

Our entire chapter of A.P.O. is pledging 
fw national membership under the gui- 
dance of Ralph Farquhar, our second 
Vice President. Our chapter tries to 
develop leadership, to promote friendship, 
and to further the freedom that is our 
national, educational, and intellectual 
heritage. The organization stems from the 
scouting movement but is not directly 
affiiliated with the Boy Scouts. Rather, it 
is a group of young adults who wish to 
continue the scouting spirit by being of 
service to the campus, the faculty, student 
body, and the surrounding community. 
It is the policy of A.P.O. to include in its 
membership men of any race, creed, and 
color, and men of all departments of the 
College, upon being elected by the 
respective chapters and upon fulfillment 
of membership preparation set by the 
national office. 

A.P.O.'s activities intend to improve 
relations between campus and com- 
munity as well as contributions to the 
physical and social needs of the campus. 

In past weeks our chapter has planned 
service projects which will aid the stu- 
dents. These projects include a clip-board 
to be posted in either Lasker or Alknan 
Halls. 

Committees concerning our various 
activities have been formed. These in- 
clude a social committee, which has 
planned a hay ride for the near future; a 
ser\'ice committee, whose job is to decide 
on suitable service projects for the better- 
ment of the campus or cummunity; mem- 
bership committee, whose activities con- 
cern new members and keeping the old 
ones active; a finance committee whose 
job consists of keeping records of dues 
and income and allotting funds to pur- 
chase materials for our service projects, 
and a publications committee, whose main 
interest lies in alerting the community to 
our willingness to participate in necessary 
service projects and to bring our existence 
to light for the students who are in- 
terested in joining. 

Oiu meetings are held on Tuesday 
night at 7:30 in Segal Hall Auditorium. 
Any and all interested in community and 
campus service are urged to attend and 
join the National Service Fraternity. 

Additional information can be obtained 
by contacting our President Tom Flam 
in Work Hall, Room 214 or Ralph 
Farquhar, an off campus student who is 
the chainnan of our membership com- 
mittee. 



Dairy Society 



by Nicholas Semeniuk 

The D.V.C. Dairy Society met for the 
second time this semester on November 2. 
Enough people were present at the 
gathering for it to be called a meeting. A 
fair idea of the financial standing was 
obtained from the previous meetings' 
minutes, since the treasurer was not there. 
The President, Pete Reiter, gave a report 
on the goings-on at the last interclub 
council meeting and Leslie Young, being 
the chairman of the banquet committee, 
called a meeting of that committee in 
order to discuss plans for the up-coming 
aflFair known as the "Annual Banquet". 

Dr. Keith was the only faculty member 
in attendance at the Dairy Society meet- 
ing. The charming couple, Dr. and Mrs. 
Croshaw, came after the meeting was 
adjourned. They probably got stuck in 
the mud somewhere between Farm No. 3 
and the campus. The good doctor brought 
propaganda slides along with him which 
were supplied by Babson Bros., who 
manufacture Surge milking equipment. 
"Doctor" Leon Byrd probably derived 
the most benefit from them. 

All in all, even without refreshments, 
the meeting was a success. 

by Joel Martin 

Mr. Leonard Crooke, at one of the 
club's regular meetings, spoke on the 
financial problems faced by a person 
going into the dairy business. As a 1951 
graduate of D.V.C. Mr. Crooke gave a 
good indication of the financial outlay 
needed to start a dairy operation if a 
person does not inherit the cows, the 
equipment, and the farm itself. His 
opinion was that the initial steps in 
starting a profitable dairy herd could be 
very difficult due to lack of farm experi- 
ence, not having been raised on a farm, 
and lacking financial backing. Mr. Cooke 
ako stressed the importance of thoughtful 
and careful decision-making in all situa- 
tions and at all times. 

A committee has been formed to decide 
on the place and time to have the annual 
joint Dairy and Animal Husbandry ban- 
quet. This year the Dairy Society S& in 
charge. 

Speakers are planned for the futiue 
meetings. 

The Dairy Society started its year off 
to a good start by getting its float made 
and finished on time and participating in 
the parade through town. Although we 
didn't win any prize we were proud of 
the float. 

Anyone interested in playing intramural 
sports for the Dairy Society should con- 
tact Chuck Rynd in Ulman Hall. We are 
planning ho have speakers and films at 
our meetings in the future. 




Business 
Administration Club 

The BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 
Club of Delaware Valley College got off 
to a good start this year. We, the mem- 
bers, feel that this will be a very profit- 
able and enjoyable year. 

At present, our volleyball and football 
teams are fighting for their respective 
league championships. We are confident 
that they will not fail. 

Our future activities include many 
worthwhile events, the first of which will 
be held on November 17, when we will 
be honored by the presence of Mr. Ed- 
ward Richards. 

Richards lives in Easton, Penna. and is 
in charge of the Business and Publica-

The Contemporary Club 

by Joel N. Martin 

On November 1st the Delaware Valley 
College students got another first from the 
Contemporary Club. The fog was low 
and the Demoncratic candidate for 
Governor, Milton Shapp, was ill, but the 
show went on even though it was an hour 
late. Instead of Milton Shapp coming to 
the campus, State Senator Leonard 
Staisey drove in with the Bucks County 
Democratic chairman, John Welsh. The 
students were disappointed because the 
helicopter didn't show up. We all went 
to the gym and after an introduction by 
Dean Fulcoly, Mr. Yeager spoke on behalf 
of Milton Shapp. Leonard Staisey then 
gave a five minute introductory speech 
before being questioned by Bob McClel- 
land '67, Richar Funt '68, Dick Smith '68 
and Joel Martin '67. The questions asked 
had to do with higher education, crime, 
highways and seaways, and the candi- 
dates motivations for running for office. 
The audience participated later by asking 
Staisey questions. The assembly ended 
and the student body went out to the 
practice football field to see Staisey leave 
by helicopter. Most people termed the 
activity a success and felt we should have 
more of these things. 

The next day, to give equal time to the 
Republicans, we had Mr, Blester, who 
was running for Congress in this area. 
Lt. Governor Shafer was invited to come 
to D.V.C. but refused to come. The 
assembly attracted fewer stndents but 
proved as worthwhile as thr one the day 
before. Mr. Biester was introduced by 
Dean Fulcoly and then the candidate 
spoke for twenty to thirty minutes on the 
issues he thought the American people 
were facing and what he believes should 
be done to improve and correct the 
wrongs. Questions from the audience 
were answered and the assembly was 
ended. Although the student audience 
was less, the Contemporary Club was 
pleased that the students did show in- 
terest and that these assemblies helped to 
clarify some of the issues. It is hoped that 
such activities will be encouraged and 
occur frequently on the campus. 

The Contemporary Club wishes to 
thank a number of people for helping us 
to organize this activity: Dr. Work, Dean 
Fulcoly, Mr. Linta, Dave Spinella, the 
boys on the panel, the maintenance crew, 
the Miley officer, and people of both the 
I^mocratic and Republican parties that 
helped to make this a success. 

The Contemporary Club wishes to 
thank the students who attended the 
concert for homecoming. The members 
of the club got only words of praise from 
those who attended and we wish to thank 
you for coming out and supporting us. 
iThe success of this concert has left the 
door open for future activities of the 
same natiu'e. 

We have speakers lined up and will be 
posting signs when meetings will be held.

DeI'Val Number Eleven 

Gallaudet Crushed by 
Delaware Valley 

by William Dunscombe 



Football statistics for 6 games including 
Lycoming Haverford Albright 

Moravian Wilkes Gallaudet 



In a game that will not influence our 
standings in the MAC, Del Val crushed 
winless Gallaudet by the impressive score 
of 48 to 0. The game was a massive dis- 
play of the Aggies powerful offense and 
stubborn defense. Coach Graver was able 
to clear his bench during the course of 
the game thereby giving his reserves a 
taste of action and his regulars a chance 
to rest. It must be said that the reserves 
also played a very good game. 

Defensive Coach DiFrancesco was ex- 
trenoely pleased with the outstanding job 
of the defensive line. The defensive line 
was able to limit the Gallaudet backs to 
a net gain of only 18 yards. Especially 
noteworthy of praise was the job Pat 
Daly did in the defensive backfield. Pal 
intercepted two Gallaudet aerials and 
raced 25 and 39 yards for touchdowns. 
Big Ted Cotrell also intercepted a pass 
and went 15 yards for a score. 

Aside from the scoring done by the 
defense, Dennis Shank, John Nice, Harry 
Capozzoli, and Robert Jones also joined 
the scoring parade as he kicked 6 extra 
points in addition to his punting chores. 

Prior to the game with Gallaudet, the 
Aggies were hsted 11th nationally in the 
small college division in defense with a 
5 game record of 266 defensive plays for 
676 yards for 135.2 yards per game 
average. 
« 

Freshman quarterback Ron Timko was 
the leader of all passers with a total of 45 
completions in 95 attempts for 627 yards 
and four touchdowns. 

Two of Timko's favorite receivers were 
listed also. Harry CapozzoH with 20 
catches for 266 yards was listed second 
and Joe Franchella was listed third with 
17 catches for 275 yards and 3 touch- 
downs.

7 he tumult and 
^ke Shouting 

by Howard Reed Heritage 

D. V. C. students get to see three foot- 
ball games! If you went to all the home 
games this year that is all you saw. Of 
course die Lycoming game was home, 
but that was where all the students were, 
too. 

Coach Graver's team is really coming of 
age, and strong student interest in the 
team is growing on campus. But with 
Saturday classes, lack of transportation, 
and distance of many away games means 
that many D. V. C. students only get to 
see the team when they are at home. Why 
play a home game when school hasn't 
even started? And why only an ei^t 
game schedule? 

The M.A.C., in which we are a mem- 
ber, has thirty-seven member colleges, 
but we only play six of them. I am sure 
that the College could come up with a 
nine or ten game all M.A.C. schedule. If 
not, I am sure Grove City is not the only 
worth while non-member team we can 
schedule. 

Why play Gallaudet? D. V .C. has 
stepped up its football program and it 
is showing success. We are wasting our 
time playing a team Uke Gallaudet. Let's 
get the touph opponents, there is no need 
to pad a schedule. I would rather see us 
k)se 58-0 to a Gettysburg or Bucknell 
than beat a poorly handicapped team like 
Gallaudet 48-0. 

I don't know what the Athletic Depart- 
ment's plan is for the future, but I would 
like to see a tough ten game schedule 
with five home games played when 
school is in session. We must remember 
that intercollegiate sports are for the 
entire student body to enjoy and should 
be planned as such. The Aggies have a 
bright future ahead on the gridiron and 
the success should be shared by the 
entire student body. 

Aggie hct{m\ The 8-6 loss to un- 
defeated Grove City in the mud was a 
marked improvement over last year's 
game . . . outstanding linemen in the 
Albright game; Warren Hitz and Ted

outstanding back if he could learn to hold

Cross Country Results 

by William Dunscombe 
Delaware Valley literally ran away 
with their meet against Eastern Baptist 
College. When all the runners were in 
and the scores tabulated, the Aggies won 
by the score of 15 to 40. Delaware Valley 
took the first five places with Ira Walker 
leading the pack with a time of 25:02. 
Following behind Ira were Lee Latchau, 
Wayne Oppenheimer, Howard Hender- 
son, and Don Tantum. 

In their meet against Moravian College 
and Franklin & Marshall College the 
Aggies "bit the dust" They lost to 
Moravian 28 to 27 and Franklin & 
Marshall 34 to 21. The top runner for 
Del Val was senior Ira Walker. Ira's 
time for the four and a half mile course 
was 24:26. 

The Aggie 
Ten-Pin Alley 

by Jim Elias 

Enthusiasm and anxiety were exhibited 
as the D.V.C. intramural bowling league 
opened its season on the 26th of October. 
This year the league broke a record its 
first week by having the largest number of 
participants and teams in its history. 

Om. Hort. (A), Agr. (A), and Science 
(C) got off to tremendous starts by cap- 
turing four points from Om. Hort. (B), 
Agr, (B), and Science (D) respectively. 
The remainder of the teams split their 
series, except for Business defeating Bar- 
ness Hall by a score of 3 to 1. 

However, a much more excting phe- 
nomenon occurred on the 26th of October. 
This event captured the attention of the 
entire league at lanes 9 and 10 where 
they witnessed Bob Treskot roll eight 
consecuvtive strikes — four away from a 
perfect game! Treskot ,unfortunately, did 
not get number nine and finished with a 
league high of 252. The team high series 
of the day was awarded to Science A 
with a 1734 for three games.

An Open Letter 
From Dean Fulcoly 




At rti* gam*. 




On behalf of the Office of the Dean of 
Students and the Administration of the 
College I would like to take this oppor- 
tunity to congratulate the students of 
Delaware Valley College for their con- 
duct and acceptance of today's somewhat 
complex problems. We in the administra- 
tion feel fortunate, and proud of our 
students, when we hear what is hap- 
pening on other college campuses across 
the country. This is due in part to our 
size but to a larger degree to our students. 
The energies of most of our students 
seem to be directed toward their major 
fields of interest, their club and Intra- 
mural activities and the Colleges' Inter- 
collegiate Athletic and Judging Programs. 
When problems do arise they are handled 
in the proper manner through the Student 
Government, which works hand in hand 
with the administration. This is as it 
should be and as we would hope it will 
continue to be in the years to come.

The New Look 
In Elections 

by BOB MCCLELLAND 

This fall the student govenmient in- 
troduced a change in election proce- 
dures, and from the great support demon- 
strated by the freshman class this change 
may be a great step in the ri^t direction. 

The procedure is as follows; each man 
interested in running for an office must 
sign up in the Dean's office and at that 
time will be issued a petition which he 
must circulate and obtain a required 
number of signatures from his fellow 
classmates. VHien this is completed his 
name is placed on the ballot, and an 
election is held in the dining hall by 
secret ballot. 

As is the case with all new ideas, 
some areas of importance are overlooked 
during the planning stage, and show up 
only after they are practiced. After in- 
terviewing many members of the fresh- 
man class and faculty members, several 
good points were discovered. These points 
will be incorporated into the final draft 
of the new procedure. 

The first addition will be a class rally 
designed to help the members of the 
class decide among the various candi- 
dates. Each candidate will have an oppor- 
tunity to speak at the rally, including in 
his speech his qualifications, platform, 
and other issues. The second addition will 
be the introduction of a primary election 
widi all the candidates running, and then 
from this election the top two or three 
vote-getters for each office will be allow- 
ed one week of campaigning and then 
they will run off in a general election. 

It is hoped that the additions will 
attract a majority of the class to partici- 
pate in elections, and also give the offi- 
cers elected a chance to secure die sup- 
port of a majority of their class. 

I wish to thank the freshman class for 
their active support during the recent 
campaign, and for their united effort at 
the polls where three-fourths of the class 
voted. 

I hope that in future elections even 
more interest will be created in the im- 
portant process of electing class officers. 




On The Contemporary Club 

The Contemporary Club is one of the 
busiest clubs on campus and it has had 
its share of successes and flops. But this 
year, the club has turned a new leaf and 
under the leadership of many capable 
and qualified officers, the club is offering 
many activities for the student to take 
advantage of and participate in. 

Last year the club made an impressive 
record but this year it has already out- 
done itself. Leonard Staisey and Ray- 
mand Biester have spoken on campus 
under Contemporary Club sponsorship. 
The Ian and Sylvia concert, which drew 
an audience of over 900 from all parts 
of the five state area and drew enou|^ 
money to break even, was a club project. 
Plans are already being made for a con- 
cert next year. The Contemporary Club 
is sponsoring a student hootenanny 
planned for this semester, chess evenings 
at the library annex aiK) a New York trip. 

The officers are doing a splendid job 
of overcoming red tape to produce re- 
sults. It is through the entire effort of the 
following officers that the Contemporary 
Club is able to offer such an interesting 
agenda: Joel Martin, President; Mark 
Wolfe, Vice President; Rich Scott, Secre- 
tary; and Paul Butterbau^, Treasurer. 



Dairy Judging 



Team 



Owr mixar 



On September 18, the Dairy Judging 
Team of Delaware Valley CoUege em- 
barked on an enjoyable and rewarding 
trip to West Springfield, Mass. at this 
year's Eastern States Collegiate Judging 
Contest. They represented our College in 
competition against somt of the largest 
and finest universities in Eastern United 
States and Canada. 

The team consisted of David Bray, 
William Eick, Bruce Jenny, and Richanl 
Smith. They retumeKl to College two 
weeks early to practice and study under 
the helpful and valuable assistance 
offered by coaches Dr. J. Elite Croshaw 
and Dr. James M. Keith. 

Although the team acquired no singular 
honon during the long day of judging on 
September 19, the coaches can be proud 
of their first Delaware Valley quartet. Of 
the 36 contestants and 12 alternates that 
competed the twelve teams, Delaware 
Valley ranked seventh. 

University of Massachusetts, Cornell, 
Ohio State, and Penn State were the top 
four teams, while such well known teams 
as University of New Hampshire, V.P.I., 
and University of Connecticut found 
themselves falling below the Aggie 
standards. 

Dick Smith, a junior, was the seventh 
highest individual for all the breeds. Last 
year, as an alternate, he had an unofficial 
high score for the Holstein breed, and 
this year returned to put his name in the 
books. Dick received a handsome trophy 
from the Holstein Friesian Association 
for being the high man in their breed. 

E^ve Bray, established himself as one 
of the top ten individuals in both the 
Guernsey, and Ayrshire breeds. 

Bruce Jenny also had a very cwn- 
mendable day in his first judging contest 
and continues to show the most improve- 
ment of any senior. 

This year's alternate. Bill Eick, gave 
the support expected from his "keen eye 
for cows". 

The next contest for the team will at 
the International Dairy Show in Chk^go 
on December 1.

See Europe 
For Next 
To Nothing 



A new kind of program is being offer- 
ed to American college students called 
"Do It Yourself by the International 
Travel Establishment of Switzerland. A 
summer in Europe for less than one hun- 
dred dollars can be made possible if the 
student follows the I.T.E. instructions 
given in their pamphlet. The only draw- 
back is that you have to work during the 
two or three months of your European 
stay. Job opportunities are made avail- 
able by I.T.E. with no strings attached. 
The program also offers low cost tours 
direct from the "Tour Wholesaler" sav- 
ing you countless dollars. 

The tours are varied and flexible. You 
can travel throughout central and western 
Europe from five to twenty-one days. 
Almost all costs are included such as 
accomodations, breakfast, dinner, on-the- 
continent transportation, fees, tolls, and 
taxes. Air transportation between Europe 
^nd New York is often included in the 
tour price, and can always be arranged. 
Incidentals, souvenirs, trinkets, tipping, 
etcetera, are not included. 

Everything is first class and on a group 
basis. Hotels and restaurants are that 
particular area's finest. Travel is by bus 
or limousine with an experienced chauffer! 
At each stop, usually only for a day, there 
is a guided tour of the city or country- 
side. Evening is spent at dinner and then 
visiting the "haunts" with your group. 
Free time is not neglected. There is much 
time for bargain shopping and other 
individual activity. 

To pay for the tour, I.T.E. will find 
you a job in Germany for two or three 
months. The opportunities consist mainly 
of industrial, commercial, office, or hotel- 
resort work. I.T.E. has estimated that a 
person can net $125 per month after 
deductions, room and board. Therefore, 
a three month stay in Eiu-ope can cost as 
little as $80, the difference between ex- 
penses and job income. The main benefit 
of this system is the opportunity for you 
to work with and really know some people 
of a foreign country. 

For a complete pamphlet listing job 
opportunities, tours, and application 
forms send one dollar to: Dept. 1, Inter- 
national Travel Establishment, 88 Her- 
rengasse, Vaduz Liechtenstein, Switzer- 
land.

Corless Paces Judging 

Delaware Valley College's Intercol- 
legiate Judging Team came in tenth place 
at the Pennsylvania Livestock Exposition 
in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and ninth 
place at the Eastern National Livestock 
Show in Timonium, Maryland. 

Our team, paced by George Corless, 
did exceptionally well against the twenty- 
four teams that competed at these shows. 

The judging team has a handicap, in 
that the Animal Husbandry Students have 
only two courses in judging through their 
four years at DVC. Other schools, such 
as Penn State University, have an av- 
erage of ten hours a week in judging 
courses per semester. Even with this 
handicap, it seems that Dr. Pelle always 
comes dirough every year with a top- 
notch team. 

The Judging Team was in Chicago 
on Thanksgiving Day to get ready for the 
contest that was held on Friday, No- 
vember 25th, at the International Live- 
stock Expedition. There were approx- 
imately sixty teams participating in this 
contest and I am sure that our team did 
well there. 



Know Your 

Student 

Government 

Dave Spinella 

This has been a very active year for the 
Student Government. During this week 
you have had a chance or will have had 
a chance to see just what the Student 
Government has done. This evaluation 
will come in the form of a flier that will 
be distributed to every dormitory room on 
campus. Additional copies will be avail- 
able in the Registrar's Office. 

Every effort is being made to keep the 
students informed about every phase of 
college life, and what is being done to 
improve areas that must be improved. 
Just to take action in many cases is easy, 
but to take action that is positive and will 
result in lasting satisfaction for all the 
students requires the help and under- 
standing of each and every student. 

The members of the Student Govern- 
ment are very pleased with the coopera- 
tion of the students thus far and realize 
that without the full support of you — the 
individual student — our efforts would be 
futile. However, just one-third of the 
school year is finished and to continue to 
move ahead the Student Government 
needs more and new ideas. Each stu- 
dent is urged to get to know his respec- 
tive Class Representatives, because we 
realize, you, (as a student) are the best 
source of new ideas. If these ideas are 
brought to the attention of the Student 
Government through the Representatives 
much mwe can be accomplished and we 
can continue to move ahead. It has been 
proved that Student Government can be 
effective, but each student shares the 
responsibility of how effective it will be. 



Lee Andrews on Campus 



Delaware Valley College thus far has 
not had many claims-to-fame for social 
events here, but on Friday night, De- 
cember ninth, the College was provided 
with one of its finest evenings of enter- 
tainment ever sponsored by your Student 
Government. 

Lee Andrews and the Hearts, probably 
the hottest attraction on college campuses 
today, supplied the musical entertainment 
for this, the third mixer of the school 
year and the first to be held in the aud- 
itorium of the new Mandell Hall Science 
building. 

For this night-to-be remembered. Stu- 
dent Government invited 26 neighboring 
girls' colleges to the dance, including 
Beaver, Gwynedd-Mercy, and Trenton 
State. And as a special feature, refresh- 
ments were served in the lobby. 

Time and success have given Lee An- 
drews and the Hearts the polish and 
versatility that are given few performers. 
They began singing over a decade ago, 

Delaware Valley 
Splits Dual Meet 

The Del Val cross country team split 
their dual meet at Ursinus by beating 
King's 22 to 38 and losing to Ursinus 21 
to 36. The 5.5 mile course was won by 
Herman of Ursinus with a time of 30:42 
and close on his heels was our Ira Walker 
with a time of 31:00. Other Aggie run- 
ners who placed were Lee Latchaw in 
6th, Richard Thurber in 10th place and 
Wayne Oppenheimer in l2th place. The 
split with Ursinus and King's enabled 
the cross country boys to finish with a 
season's record of 9 wins and 7 losses. 
This marked the 6th consecutive winning 
season for Coach Ned Linta.

and the first song they recorded, "Maybe 
You'll Be There", launched them on their 
way towards a spectacular career. In 1957 
they hit on "Long Lonely Ni^ts", the 
recoid that made them. Shortly afterward 
they recorded "Tear Drops" and "Try The 
Impossible." They began touring the 
stage show and night club circuits thro- 
ughout the country, but six years of 
constant travelling and being away fnxn 
their famiUes resulted in the Hearts', 
much to the dismay of their fans, break- 
ing up — although still friends. Two years 
later, however, the five boys got together 
again and were biggier than ever. Today, 
Lee Andrews and the Hearts (Roy Cal- 
hoi'ui, Wendall Calhoun, Buch Curry, and 
Larry Magid ) travel with their own band 
and limit the majority of their appear- 
ances to colleges. DVC was very privi- 
ledged indeed to have a singing group c^ 
their calibre perform here at the mixer.

THE FURROW 



Three Seniors Play Last Game 



Robert Jones 

In this weeks Sportlight are the three 
graduating members of our football team, 
William Mitchell, Paul Quintevalle, and 
Henry Wetzel. They are a trio of out- 
standing players, who ha\e for four years 
contributed enormously to the impros'e- 
ment of the Delaware Valley College 
sports program. 

Perhaps the most energetic of these 
three seniors is William (Billy) Mitchell. 
As captain of this year's team. Bill has 
proven beyond a doubt to be one of the 
most dynamic leaders on our campus. He 
graduated from Chester High School, in 
Chester, Pa., where he played both foot- 
ball and baseball, and was selected as 
the Outstanding Athlete of his senior 
year. Here at D.V.C. he is a three letter 
man in football and a two-letter man in 
baseball. 

Billy is an Animal Husbandry Major 
very active in student affairs. He was 
Vice-President of his Freshman Class, 
two year Treasurer of Student Govern- 
ment, Inter-Club Council Chairman, Stu- 
dent Director of Intramurals, President 
of the Varsity Club, and Co-editor of 
the '67 Yearbook. 

As an athlete, Bill is a tremendous 

competitor and great hustler, one who 

gives one-hundred percent. His versatility 
in playing offensive and defensive half- 
back, flanker, split-end, safety and line- 
backer made him truly valuable to the 
team. Bill was handicapped in football by 
his size but overcame it by hard work 
and determination. 

Those of us who played with Bill are 
going to miss him next fall. When the 
breaks were going against us, he injected 
the charge that made us want to work 
harder. Our entire team knows that we 
owe Bill a tremendous vote of thanks for 
his leadership. 




Bill Mitchell 

Paul Quintevalle has indeed proven to 
be a big asset to the team. A graduate of 
Hatboro-Horsham High School in Hat- 
boro. Pa., Paul is a Dairy Husbandry 
major. This his senior year has proven to 
be the most outstanding of his four years 
on the team. His experience and ma- 



turity were two of the biggest reasons 
why our offense was able to average 320 
yards per game. In his sophomore year, 
Paul was picked as Outstanding Lineman. 
The lost of Quint, as he is known to most 
students, at the tackle spot will leave a 
big hole in our offensive line, and it will 
take a hard, dedicated worker to fill it. 




Paul Quintevalle 

Henry Wetzel is the smallest offensive 
player on this year's squad, but one of 
the finest men on and off the field. In the 
words of coach Bill Bill Craver, "Henry 
has the largest heart of any player on our 
football team. If All- Americans were 
picked by hustle, desire, and heart, Henry 
would be the No. 1 candidate." 

A graduate of Merchantville High 
School in Merchantville, N.J., and major- 
ing in Agronomy, Henry has proven to be 
a great hustler and tough competitor. He 
was the smallest offensive guard on the 
team, weighing 184 pounds, but un- 
doubtedly the most ambitious. His kindly 
attitude has won him the respect of all 
his teammates, opponents, and coaches. 
Thanks to players like Henry, people are 
no longer characterizing the "Aggie foot- 
ball player" as a brawny idiot. Instead 
they are realizing that it takes intelligence 
and integrity to be a winner. We are in- 
debted to Henry for setting an example 
which should last and grow among all 
D.V.C. football players.

^he Shouting 

Howard Reed Heritage 

The college football season is almost 
over. From Del Val's upset of Albright to 
Ara Parseghian's "chickening out", it has 
given fans across the nation many thrills 
and exciting moments. As the air turns 
colder and Christmas lights go up, the 
sports fans of the nation turn away from 
the gridiron and go hoop crazy. 

We are lucky enough to be in one of 
the hottest basketball areas in the nation. 
From the '76ers, to the Big Five, to the 
many fine small college teams, to the out- 
standing Phila. high school teams this 
area has some of the best basketball 
talent in the world. D.V.C. is a part of 
this basketball hotbed. 

From here, it looks like it will be a 
long season for the Aggies. They have 
added a rough schedule to be tested by 
a young team. There won't be a Senior 
on the court, and many of last year's 
starters have turned to new areas of in- 
terest. Coach John Silan will have to 
build his team around Cunningham, Eisel, 
Sieferth, and Kowalik; with help from 
Schoenberg and Fitch. No doubt many of 
the freshmen will see plenty of varsity 
time before the season is over. The Aggies 
will be put to a real test against such 
teams as Drexel, Scranton, and Albright. 
I'm glad to see the new schedule and feel 
with the experience that Coach Silan has 
behind him that he can build Del Val into 
a sound, well drilled basketball squad. 

Let's go out and give this team 100% 
student body support, at home and on the 
road. Many a team has gone on the court 
a loser and come off a winner solely be- 
cause the pnople in the stands were be- 
hind them. Let's go in that gym and make 
so much noise that the other team won't 
ever want to play here again. If you don't 
think this has an effect, just ask anyone 
who attends the Palestra regularly what 
helped make St. Joe one of the best teams 
in the nation the last two years. Talent 
and hard work is 80% of winning; but 
that other 20% — student support— can 
usually mean the difference between vic- 
tory or defeat. 

Aggie Action: Maxwell Club honored 
John Nice for his outstanding job in the 
Lebanon Valley game . . . hats off to 
Coach Craver for trying to give Captain 
Bill Mitchell a chance at one more TD at 
Del Val . . . also a pat on the back to Ira 
Walker for his cross country success . . .

CLUB & CLASS ACTIVITIES 



The Agronomy Club 

Every other Thursday at 7:30 p.m. the 
Agronomy Club holds a meeting. Novem- 
ber 17, 1966 proved to be a very inter- 
esting night for the club members. The 
club trip was discussed. There is a possi- 
bility the club may go to either Penn 
State or Cornell to look over the Agron- 
omy Departments. This would mean a 
two day trip which many of the members 
seem to want. The club banquet will be 
held at The CoUegeville Inn, and after 
the meal there will be a speaker. 

After the business meeting Rob Kalm- 
backer spoke to the club on his summer 
job in Sweden. He centered his discussion 
around the many slides which he had. 
Rob was open to any and all questions 
which made the evening quite an educa- 
tional one. Rob worked on a farm in 
Southern Sweden. The land is very flat, 
which reminded me of South Jersey, the 
garden spot of the U.S.A. The sizfle of the 
farm is 2500 acres, the fifth largest in 
Sweden. Some of the crops grown are 
potatoes, wheat, sugar beets, and forage 
crops. The farm has large fields separated 
by many trees. During the winter months 
the work goes from fanning to cutting 
trees. The lumber business produces a 
large part of the farm income. On the 
side Rob had pictures of tractors, com- 
bines and other equipment. Almost all 
of this equipment was made by Volvo. 

This proved to be an interesting night 
for the Agronomy Boys. 



Hort Club News 

* Mwangi Maganjo 

The officers of the Hort. Club would 
like to express their thanks to all the 
melmbers of the Club for the good 
attendance at the meetings and the tre- 
mendous spirit they have exhibited in the 
fund raising activities. 

At the last meeting, held on November 
9, it was decided that our field trip this 
year will be taken next semester — pre- 
ferably in February, and that it will be 
to New York. 

Alan Marans was nominated chairman 
of the committee that was charged with 
the duties of getting in touch with the 
places of interest. 

At the next meeting, which will be held 
soon, it is hoped that the final decisions, 
as to the dates of the trip and the places 
to be visited, will be made. We hope 
that you will make it a point to attend 
this important meeting. / ,

Soil Conservation Society 



Wayne Winner 

On November 8, 1966, the Delaware 
Valley College Soil Conservation Chapter 
was host to several important guests. The 
guests at the chapter meeting were Mr. 
J. Sacco, Council member Northeastern 
Region Soil Conservation Society of 
America; Mr, Miller, Open Space, 
Central New Jersey Action Committee; 
Mr. J. Nehoda, Soil Conservation Ser- 
vice and past president of the Keystone 
Chapter of the S.C.S.A.; Mr. E. Thomp- 
kins Soil Scientist; and Miss E. Clarson, 
Central Bucks High School District. Also 
present at. the meeting were Dr. Work, 
Mrs. Smith, Dean Turner, Dr. Prundeanu, 
Dean Fulcoly, Dr. Feldstein, and Mr. 
Adelson. 

Mr. Sacco was the main speaker of the 
evening. He complimented the club mem- 
bers on their participation in the Na- 
tional Conventions and urged that the So- 
ciety continue to send representatives to 
these National Conventions. Mr. Sacco 



expressed the importance of Soil Conser- 
vation throughout the United States and 
the rest of the World. 

Mr. Sacco then presented our faculty 
advisor, Dr. Julian Prundeanu, with a 
plaque by the Keystone Chapter of the 
Soil Conservation Society of America for 
his work in the field of conservation. It 
was also announced that Dr. Prundeanu 
has been asked to be part of the commit- 
tee for selecting recipients of the Cildea 
Scholarship. This year Walter Simmons, 
Treasurer of the Delaware Valley Chap- 
ter, received the award. 

A social hour with refreshments follow- 
ed the formal meeting. 

On December 14, 1966, the Society 
will travel to Glassboro State Teachers 
College for a joint meeting with the Rut- 
gers University Chapter and the Glass- 
boro State Teachers Chapter. The meet- 
ing will include a discussion period and 
the presentation of some of the papers 
originally given at the National Conven- 
tion in August. 



Glee Club 

Robert Jones 

On November 30th, the Delaware Val- 
ley College Glee Club began its Christ- 
mas season of concerts by performing 
for the Viet Nam war veterans at Valley 
Forge Hospital. This program will be 
followed by twelve others. Some of the 
organizations for whom the group pre- 
formed are: the Village Improvement 
Association, Memorial Nursing School, 
the Plumsteadville Grange and the Doy- 
lestown Chapter of Eastern Star. In ad- 
dition to these programs, the group is 
also recording a radio broadcast. 

Some of the songs which will be sung 
by the group this year are: African Noel, 
Adoration of the Magi, There Were Shep- 
herds, Christmas Was Meant For Chil- 
dren, A Musical Christmas Card, and 
Masters in this Hall. 

Glee Club performs here at the college 
in Mandell Auditorium on December 
15th. This program is open to the public 
and, especially, to the student body. We 
hope that many of you, will take an inter- 
est in attending this concert and hear our 
college's best group of ambassadors. 



Jim Learning Speaks at Banquet 



Delaware Valley College held its Fall 
Sports Banquet on Tuesday evening, 
November 29, at the Doylestown Country 
Club. The lengthy but enjoyable program 
was highlighted by a salute to the athletes 
who made the Aggies' inaugural season 
in the Middle Atlantic Conference a suc- 
cessful one, along with the promise of 
greater achievements next fall. 

Philadelphia sportscaster Jim Leam- 
ing was the guest speaker, with other 
addresses given by football coach H. W. 
(Bill) Graver and cross country mentor 
Ned A. Linta. The toastmaster chores 
were ably handled by Doylestown busi- 
nessman Joseph R. Kenny. 

Many awards were distributed, notably 
sweaters and letters, as well as certificates 
of merit to the outstanding gridders and 
harriers. In a close vote, it was announc- 
ed that Rich Kelly succeeds Bill Mitchell 
as football captain next year, and Wayne 
Oppenheimer takes over Ira Walker's 
position in cross country. Mitchell was 
presented the President's Award by Dr. 
Work, and Walker received the Outstand- 
ing Harrier Award from Coach Linta. 

Special award winners included Teddy 
Cottrell and Pat Day for being selected 
to the first team of the E.C.A.C. All- 
Conference squad. Ron Timko, Gene 
Wallace, Cottrell, Harry Cappozolla, and 
John Nice were cited for being on a 
weekly all-star team during the season. 
Nice also received recognition for being 
Del-Val's first recipient of the Maxwell 
Award. 

Mr. Leaming gave a short talk— he was 
due back at the studios in less than an 
hour — relating some of his humorous 
experiences at his Alma Mater, the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina. He then 
praised Dr. Work and Mr. Linta for the 
growth and spirit of D.V.C., and then 
quipped: "Yours' is the only college in 
the country which admits co-eds who 
are cheerleaders." 

Coach Graver took over and praised 
his assistants ( "any one of them could be 



a head coach") before handing out the 
letters. In addition, game balls from var- 
ious contests were presented to seniors 
Henry Wetzel, Paul Quintavalle, and 
Mitchell, as well as two to Mr. Linta and 
another to Dr. Work. 

College physician Dr. Richard Schu- 
macher, rushing back from New York 
to attend the banquet, summed up all 
the achievements when he stated that 
"there were many important statistics 
mentioned this evening, but the most 
important thing to note was that the 
season started with groups of boys and 
men; it ended up with teams of men." 

BANQUET BRIEFS: The football 
team was number one nationally in total 
defense ,as well as finishing ninth in the 
Lambert Bowl voting for best small col- 
lege team in the east The 8-6 rec- 
ord that the Harriers finished with mark- 
ed their sixth consecutive winning sea- 
son ...... Mr. Linta observed that 

"next year will be harder to attain these 
high goals being set but at the same time 

more enjoyable" By listening to 

the speeches, one gets the idea that there 
is no limit as to how far the Aggies can go 

on the athletic fields Last year's 

grid start. Bill Cottrell, was in the aud- 
ience and seemed to be pleased over his 
younger brother's success Assist- 
ant coaches Christensen, de Francesco, 
and Muir were presented with silver 
beer mugs by the appreciative football 

squad

Letters to the Editor 




HE NEEDS A VIOLIN 

There is a popular song on the record 
stands today and its lyrics go like this, 
"What the world needs now is love, sweet 
love", etc. Some enterprising people in 
the Delaware Valley area decided to capi- 
talize on this flaming desire of the youth 
in the area for love and companionship. 
By getting information such as vital sta- 
tistics and likes and dislikes and by feed- 
ing this pertinent data into a computer 
they hoped to match a person with a 
compatible member of the opposite sex. 

So, being from an all-boys school it 
seemed like a good idea to find a com 
patible person in this area and to let the 
other Aggies in on good fortune, or ill 
fortune as it may be. I reluctantly parted 
with three of my hard-earned dollars and 
sent in the form. Two weeks later I re- 
ceived the names, addresses, and tele- 
phone numbers of six eligible females, a 
membership card to the Young Adult 
Club, and an advertisement telling me of 
an A-GO-GO mixer at the Holiday Inn 
in Philadelphia. 

That Friday night, along with our 
illustrous associate editor, Mike Bausher, 
I departed to the jungles of Philadelphia. 
While driving through the streets of the 
city of Brotherly Love, I saw the block 
where one of my computerized dates is 
supposed to live. Right then and there I 
panicked. On the steps of the houses there 
were "wineos" and someone tried to steal 
a tire off my car, even though I was doing 
at least thirty-five. 

Being starved, I decided to eat. So we 
went to the Fife and Drum restaurant in 
the Holiday Inn. After looking at the 
menu and not finding anything I could 
afford, I asked the waitress for a ham- 
burger. After a thirty-minute wait during 
which I think they were looking for a 
cow to kill, or waiting for one to die from 
hoof-and-mouth, they served me a won- 
derful hamburger. WTien I received the 
bill, the cost of the hamburger was $2.00. 
I could have bought the entire cow for 
that price. Needless to say, we did not 
leave a tip. 

Upon entering the dance, I was re- 
lieved of another two dollars by the only 
beauty there. And that was a boy. Mike 
was relieved of three dollars because he 
is not a member of this exclusive club; 
he is fortunate. 

It looked like any DVC mixer except 
that the room had wall-to-wall carpet 
which resembled one Dr. Pelle used as a 



rug for the pigs at Farm #3. It also differ- 
ed because it had alcoholic drinks, which 
were watered down and cost a dollar 
each. Needless to say I did not get drunk, 
even thought I felt like it. The "music" 
was by the Shades, and it was typical of 
most rock-and-roll and other childrens' 
music. I talked to one girl who had the 
names of six other girls. She said she lived 
in New Hope. About half of the people 
there looked like candidates for the Penn- 
sylvania State Hospital for the Bewilder- 
ed. Most of the people who had met their 
dates were disappointed. They were usual- 
ly the opposite from what they wanted. It 
is my opinion that they did not use a 
computer at all, but took the names of 
the people and threw them down some 
steps, and who ever was the closest to 
you was your date; I think I could have 
done better with an abacus. But do not 
lose your cool concerning computerized 
dating. I will report on the dates that I 
receive and will fill you in, but not on 
everything!!!! 

A CHRISTMAS THANK 

Throughout this wonderful country of 
ours, there are many colleges and uni- 
versities. Some of these are well known to 
us and some are not. Some of them are 
very large and others are very small, but 
of all these colleges and universities, I 
love you D.V.C. It's not just the build- 
ings or the campus, but it is D.V.C. and 
what D.V.C. stands for. 

To me, Delaware Valley stands for 
helping mankind in the best way pos- 
sible, that is, by supplying him with the 
basic and most vital needs. This 
need of the agricultural and scientific 
support, that is the basic element of our 
country, could not be possible without 
your fondness for making America what it 
is. These things are so often overlooked 
by most of us that they seem common; 
yet, every time we set our dinner tables 
with fo(xl or place a vase of flowers in our 
living rooms, we are exhibiting some of 
the greatest works of man. 

I feel that in contributing yourself to 
the task of making man's life a beautiful 
joy; you men are doing the most impor- 
tant job of any in the world. Therefore, I 
would like to take this opportunity to 
say thank you from the bottom of my 
heart, and wish you all the luck in the 
world because we need you. 

Have a wonderful Christmas and a 
happy, healthy New Year. 



THE MYSTERY OF THE I'M A TIRED CITIZEN 



UNNAMED 

Delaware Valley College's two new 
dorms are essentially completed; the 
students have moved in. Nevertheless, the 
two new dorms are yet unnamed. Will 
these dorms set a precedent for which 
future dorms will be named? Perhaps a 
rich friend will take pity on the situation 
and donate some money to the college. It 
is a rare college indeed which does not 
need money, and not many people, ex- 
cept perhaps President Johnson seem to 
have money to give away to colleges. 
Perhaps President Lyndon B. Johnson 
Hall would be a fitting name for the New 
Dorm I, but the chances, fortunately, 
seem slim, even though he would want us 
to think that he gave the college some 
money with which to build the dorms. Ac- 
tually, Congress voted the money, but the 
89th Congress Hall does not appear to be 
a suitable name either. 

When all is said and done, the ques- 
tion still remains— Who has the money 
or solution to solve the mystery of the 
unnamed dorms?

Aggies Beat 
Susquehanna 

Del Val scored double victories over 
Susquehanna University (27 to 30) and 
Juniata College (26 to 29). The Aggie 
runners were led by Captain Ira Walker 
who placed fourth, Lee Latchaw 5th, 
Don Tantum 8th, Howard Henderson 
10th, and Richard Thurber 11th. The 
individual winner of the meet was Robert 
Hadfield of Susquehanna who had a time 
of 22:59 for the 4.5 mile course. 

The Aggies had to settle for a split in 
their meet against P.M.C. and Washing- 
ton College. The Aggies lost to a power- 
ful P.M.C. by the score of 21 to 34 and 
defeated Washington College of Mary- 
land 24 to 31. 

Ron Sayers of P.M.C. ran our 4.5 mile 
course with a fantastic time of 23:17. The 
best time for the Aggies was by Captain 
Ira Walker who was clocked at 24:11. 

Grove City 
Downs Del- Val 

The Aggies lost a real tough game to 
undefeated but once tied Grove City Col- 
lege by the score of 8 to 6. The game 
was marked by hard tackling, stubborn 
defenses and many questionable penal- 
ties called against our boys. As usual, our 
defense was exceptional, but our offense 
seemed unable to generate an offensive. 
Our seemingly punchless offensive was 
partially subdued by the snow and slush 
which prevailed throughout the game. 

As is usual, the statistics favored Coach 
Craver's boys. Both offensive teams were 
"handcuffed" for the greater part of the 
game by the hard hitting of the defensive 
lines. Grove City's only score came early 
in the first quarter on a 67 yard scoring 
play that started with a pass from Mike 
Ziegler to end Ken Weyman. The extra 
point was made on a two point pass by 
Ziegler to Bancroft. Except for this one 
drive by Grove City, our fearsome eleven 
of the defensive unit held Grove City to 
almost no yardage at all. 

The Aggies score of the game came 
from frosh quarterback Ron Timko's pass 
to "fleet-footed" Harry Capozzoli. The 

• play covered a total of 75 yards. The 
Aggies then missed the extra point and 
this spelled the difference between vic- 

' tory and defeat.

Delaware Valley College routed Leb- 
anon Valley by the score of 34 to 0. The 
victory by the Aggies evened our life- 
time recoitl against Lebanon Valley at 
one victory each. 

The Aggies offensive unit was all John 
Nice. John spearheaded our offensive 
unit by his power-house running. John 
scored on touchdown runs of 4, 3, 5, and 
21 yards. During the course of the game 
"Big John" established four new records; 
most points in one game— 24; most touch- 
downs in one game — 4, most yards rush- 
ing in one game — 175, and most yards 
rushing in one season — 539. John's show- 
ing in our final game showed that he was 
definitely one of the MAC most outstand- 
ing backs. In recognition of his great 
performance, John was voted the Back 
of the Week by The Maxwell Club of 

Philadelphia. This is one of the highest 
tributes that may be paid to a back in the 
Philadelphia area. We of The Furrow 
would like to offer our congratulations 
to John and wish him the best of luck 
for next season. 

Also joining in the scoring parade 
against Lebanon Valley were Dennis 



Shank and Floyd Ritter. Denny sc(ved 
on a four yard pass play from Ron Timko. 
Floyd converted for 4 extra points but 
missed on the fifth attempt after a 15 
yard penalty. 

It must be noted that the defense of 
the Aggies was once again outstanding. 
The hard rushing of Ted Ck)ttrell, Ed Van 
Dom, Eugene Wallace, and John Duffy 
snuffed out all of the fruitless offensive 
efforts by ihe Flying Dutchmen. In the 
final outcome, the Dutchmen were held 
to a minus 28 yards. 

This game marked the end of the col- 
legiate football careers of Captain Billy 

Mitchell, Henry Wetzel, and Paul Quinta- 
valle. I'm sure you will all join with me 
in thanking these boys for all they have 
given to our school, not only in the way 
of athletic ability but in being gentlemen 
and credits to our institution. The Furrow 
salutes these fine men and wishes them 
success in all future endeavors and the 
best of luck 

The win over Lebanon Valley was of 
great importance to Coach Graver for it 
gave the Aggies a record of 5 and 3 and 
marked the first winning season for Coach 
H. W. Graver and his staff. 




*Hort Moves Out' 

On the 31st of October, Halloween 
night, five of the more prominent Horti- 
culture Seniors took it upon themselves 
to represent all the Hort. majors by visit- 
ing some of their professors. The crude 
hut ingenious costumes served not only 
as a clever disguise but also as a means 
of drawing laughter to the usually staid 
faces of the profs. 

The professors, delighted by the visit, 
proceeded to generously fill the "goody" 
bag of the Trick-or-Treaters. At first the 
professors were unable to identify the 
visitors, but a closer inspection soon 
proNed these five men to be Alan "Aspar- 
agus" Marans, Dave "Apple" Benner, 
Wayne "Cherry" Russo, Ed "Potato" 
Funkhouser, and Alan "Nematode" 
Shimp. 

The five Hort. Seniors, disguised as 
fruits, vegetables, and one lowly nema- 
tode, enjoyed the hospitality of Dr. Blum- 



enfield. Dr. Blackmon, and Dr. Feldstein. 
Upon the departure from their last stop, 
they returned to the "N.B.I."

The 
Band-Aid 

John G. Gerberich 

Both the football team and the band 
have completed their season successfully. 
Only one college had a band which gave 
our band competition .... Wilkes. There- 
fore, the Delaware Valley band has a '66 
season record of six wins and two losses. 
The only game the band missed was the 
first game, for obvious reasons. 

About 7-8 weeks ago, our band had 
an exi)erience that none of our mem- 
bers will forget for quite some time. The 
Gallaudet game! The band played their 
pre-game show, including the Star Spang- 
led banner and proceeded to seat them- 
selves in the D.V C. cheering section 
when, out of nowhere, there appeared a 
great cheerleader from Gallaudet who re- 
quested a playing of the Star Span- . . 
You guessed it !!!! We played it and 
they sang it with their hands. A rather 
sad sight to see. 

Our band appeared through a range 
of weather but Grove City presented the 
most incompatible. We left D.V.C. at 
5:00 a.m., witnessed a beautiful sunrise 
and were prepared for an excellent day. 
We arrived in Grove City approximately 
seven hours later in SNOW. The band 
made a brave appearance on their muddy 
soggy football field bus was confiined to 
play in the stands. 

Of course, your D.V.C. band played 
for the last game and attempted) to put 
forth a show that would top all of its 
shows and succeeded. Although the band 
is small in quantity, it is large in quality. 
Besides, WE TRY HARDER. 

Tf you play an instrument, you tan and 
may increase the quantity and quahty of 
your college band. We are in particular 
need of saxophones, trombones, flutes, 
clarinets, oboes, baritones, and french 
horns, and concert season is here. D.V.C.'s 
band could be the best in the Middle At- 
lantic Conference if the thirty seven up- 
perclassmen who play instruments, joined 
with the fifteen freshmen who also play 
instruments, and, as a group joined the 
band. 

WE, the members of the band, wish to 
thank all those involved with making it 
possible for the band to accompany the 
D.V.C. football team to the away games 
and hope our job has been worthy of the 
support we received.

THE FURROW 



Spotlight 

On 

Dean Fulcoly 

The student-faculty relationship at 
Delatoare Valley College, as with any 
other college, is primarily academic. This 
relationship is a limiting factor, for it 
restricts the students' contacts with the 
faculty members to the classroom alone. 
Students engaged in extracurricular ac- 
tivities have a greater advantage to be- 
come acquainted with the faculty, but 
still the entire potential of faculty-stu- 
dent relations is not realized. 

In an effort to improve this situation. 
The Furrow will attempt to acquaint the 
students, especially the freshman, with 
our faculty by a series of articles dealing 
with individual members of the Delaware 
Valley College Faculty. 

These articles will discuss the life his- 
tories of various faculty members, their 
interests, their goals, and their direct 
relationship to you as a student. 

It is most fitting that the first article 
of this series be concerned with a man 
who is perhaps the closest to each and 
every student on campus. His duties are 
many and varied, but each function is 
directly related to the well being of the 
entire student body of Delaware Valley 
College. 

Joseph E. Fulcoly Jr., Dean of Stu- 
dents at Delaware Valley College was 
bom in Philadelphia, Pa., on August 29, 
1927. He attended Philadelphia public 
grade school until the age of ten when 
his family moved to Fort Washington, 
Pa., where he completed his primary ed- 
ucation at Barren Hill Grade School. 

Dean Fulcoly then attended Spring- 
field High School (Montco) where he 
earned honors as captain of the football 
team, being named to the All Bux-Mont 
football squad at the position of fullback. 
He lettered also in basketball, track, and 
baseball. 

Upon graduation from Springfield High 
School in the spring of 1945, Dean Ful- 
coly went to Penn State University, State 
College Campus, where he started his 



Freshman year during the summer of 
1945. His major was Agriculture, his 
minor — football. 

However, Uncle Sam had different 
ideas for Dean Fulcoly, and in the fall of 
1945, he was drafted into a branch of the 
service then known as the Army Air 
Force. 

After serving his time in the Armed 
Forces, E>ean Fulcoly returned to Penn 
State where he was assigned studies at 
Kutztown State Teachers College. It was 
at this time that Dean Fulcoly decided 
that he preferred education on a 
more personel level. He wished to at- 
tend a jailer school where instruction 
could be had on a more close-knit basis 
with improved faculty-student rapport. 
Dean Fulcoly's choice was the NtUiorud 
Agricultural College located in Doyles- 
town. Pa. 

When asked what Del Vol was like 
during its beginning stages. Dean Ful- 
coly replied that his class was the first 
graduating class of the College. He and 
his classmates held the unique advantage 
of being upperclassmen for their entire 
stay at Del Vol. There were no Fresh- 
man customs because there were no Soph- 
omores to administer them. 

During his Junior year at Del Val, Dean 
Fulcoly decided it was about time to 
settle down. He was married in Septem- 
ber of 1948. 

After his graduation in 19^, Dean 
Fulcoly engaged in the occupation of 
Agriculture, farming 200 acres of land 



and raising poultry. However, at this 
period of time Agriculture and the poul- 
try industry were in a temporary state of 
decline, so the Dean turned elsewhere to 
make a living. He was then employed by 
an insurance company. The Sun Life of 
Canada. During this period of time Dean 
Fulcoly also taught Agronomy on a part- 
time basis at his abna mater. 

In 1957 Dean Turner asked Dean Ful- 
coly to become a full time member of the 
faculty at which time he has was ap- 
pointed Assistant Dean of Students and 
instructor of Agronomy. On February 28, 
1966, Dean Fulcoly was appointed Dean 
of Students which is the position he pre- 
sently holds. 

Dean Fulcoly is currently taking grad- 
uate work at Temple University in the 
Administrative field. Among his hobbies, 
fishing and hunting rank foremost. 

When asked what his position as Dean 
of Students entails, E>ean Fulcoly replied 
that his office is chiefly concerned with 
the non-academic aspects of student life, 
with an emphasis on the close coopera- 
tion between himself and the Student 
Government. He feels that his bond with 
the Student Government is a very im- 
portant relationship, for the welfare of 
each individual student is his primary 
concern. 



Praise for 
Ira Walker 



The dual meet with Ursinus and King's 
marks the end of Captain Ira Walker's 
intercollegiate career. The least that may 
be said concerning Ira's career here at 
Del Val is that it was brilliant. Ira is a 
native of New Brunswick, New Jersey 
and was an outstanding runner for the 
Zebras. 

Ever since his freshman year, Ira has 
been a top finisher for the Aggies. This 
year was no different as he placed con- 
sistently in the top five. Ira's best season 
was in 1965 when he placed first eight 
times. Worth noting is the fact that Ira 
placed only six times below fifth place in 
a total of 47 meets!!!! 

When Coach Linta was asked how he 
rates Ira in comparison to Lou Coppens, 
Ned said that he feels Ira has great po- 
tential and has not reached his peak. He 
continued by saying, "Lou Coppens must 
be first with Ira a shade behind as my 
two greatest runners." 

The Furrow and I personally would 
like to wish Ira much luck in the future 
and the success he so richly deserves.

Recording Star 
To Entertain 
On Friday 

In December, Delaware Valley 
College was privileged to have Lee 
Andrews and the Hearts perform 
at its third mixer. Several hundred 
Aggies and guests were thrilled by 
the performance of one of the all- 
time musical groups in what was 
the initial mixer to be held in the 
new Mandell Hall. 

On Friday evening, February 
tenth, a new face in the entertain- 
ment world will be on stage at 
Mandell from 8 to 12. Bunny Sig- 
ler, whom some may recognize as 
having a top hit on the record 
charts in "Girl Don't Make Me 
Wait", will display his talents to all 
in attendance. This young man 
from Philadelphia has "versatility" 
as his middle name; although he 
'never took lessons, Sigler can play 
both the piano and guitar. He sings 
ballads and calyp^os, as well as 
rock and roll, and is able to do so 
in three different languages 
(French, Spanish, and English). 
And he rouses audiences with 
imitations of numerous singers, in- 
cluding take-offs on stars of the 
Motown Sound. 




■UNNY SIGUEI

March of Dimes 
Drive this Month 

Tim Berman fli Dick Smith 

Saturday, February 18 has been 
designated as "March of Dimes 
Day" at Delaware Valley College. 
Tickets to an afternoon wrestling 
match between Del Val and the 
Susquehanna grapplers will be on 
sale to the public in the Doyles- 
town Shopping Center with all 
proceeds going to the Bucks Coun- 
ty Chapter of the March of Dimes. 

During the week of February 12, 
dorm counselors will collect dona- 
tions from the students on their 
respective floors. At the meet — at 
which all students will be admitted 
free — a plaque will be presented to 
the students living on the dorm 
floor which has contributed the 
greatest amount per person. 

The National Foundation of the 
March of Dimes has an ultimate 
goal to prevent all birth defects, 
which now constitute the nation's 
second greatest destroyer of life. 
Its Medical Care, Research, Pro- 
fessional and Public Educational 
programs are financed by contribu- 
tions throughout the country, and 
it is up to you to support the fight 
against these birth defects. 



Gary Hunter 
Fights for Life 

Four years ago at age 18, Gary 
Hunter fought to keep his weight 
at 123 pounds so that he could 
wrestle for coach John Maskas in 
a newly introduced sport at Dela- 
ware Valley College. Gary was a 
pioneer in a sport which has since 
become very popular on the Dela- 
ware Valley College Campus. 

Today, at age 22, Gary is fight- 
ing to keep alive after being strick- 
en with chronic glomerulonephritis, 
a disease which attacks and often 
destroys the kidney. Since Sep- 
tember Gary has been living with- 
out the functioning of either kid- 
ney. 

Gary is being kept alive by di- 
alysis treatment which uses a 
machine to perform the function 
of the kidnejrs. The cost is heavy, 
as much as $500 a treatment at 
times. Money is need^ and blood 
is needed to sustain the boy's life 
and alleviate the financial drain on 
an average income family. 

The ironic thing is that the dis- 
ease was discovered when Gary 
was taking part as a volunteer 
blood donor for our boys in Vict 
Nam. Now the time has come for 
the students at D.V.C. to answer 
the call that may help save the life 
of one of our former numbers. The 
Student Government has set aside 
February 11 as Gary Hunter 
Day". Appropriately enough, the 
day will feature a wrestling match 
and basketball game with Eastern 
Baptist. The students are being 
asked to contribute $.25 apiece for 
the double header and all the pro- 
ceeds from the day's events will go 
to the "Gary Hunter Fund." Stu- 
dents unable to attend the athletic 
contests are being asked to give 
their donation to their dorm proc- 
tor. 

As Denny Hunter, Gary's broth- 
er and a D.V.C. alumus, has sta- 
ted: "three things have kept Gary 
alive 1) his determination, 2) his 
extraordinary physical condition, 
and 3) the will of God". 

Those who knew Gary Hunter, 
knew a courageous young man who 
was unselfish and knew what it 
meant to sacrifice. Now he is fight- 
ing the toughest of all battles and 
the price for victory will be high. 

We can help Gary with our con-

Letters to the Editor 



It seems to me tiiat the traffic 
and parking regulations on campus 
have reached the level of ridicu- 
lousness. With all the restrictions 
and absolute severity with which 
they are being enforced, it seems 
that it won't be long now before we 
will be paying our $1S.00 parking 
fee, and won't be allowed to enter 
the campus. 

I would like to cite some events 
for your consideration. 

— One Sunday afternoon last 
year, I brought a big tape record- 
er up from home, and wanted to 
use it in Segal Hall. Not only 
was there no other car in the en- 
tire parking lot in back of Segal, 
but there wasn't so much as a 
person to be seen on the cam- 
pus. I decided to drive up to 
the back of Segal to drop off the 
recorder. Lo and Behold! A 
Miley Officer must have ma- 
terialized on the spot, because 
when I came out, there was a 
bright pink ticket on my car! 

— I worked on campus over this 
past summer in the lab on top 
of Segal Hall. Part of my job 
entailed suppl3ring fresh stream 
water to the fish and other aqua- 
tic creatures we were raising 
there. I transported the water 
from a nearby stream in five- 
gallon jugs which when full 

' weighed about fifty pounds, and 
I'd bring back four to six jugs at 
a time. One afternoon I pulled 
up in back of Segal to unload 
the jugs, when I heard the shrill 
whistle of the Miley Man. I was 
told that I couldn't pull up like 
that (in the middle of the sum- 
mer, in a half-empty parking 
lot) for the several minutes it 
would take to unload. I would 
have to return to the student 
, parking lot and carry the six 
jugs half-way across the campus 
to Segal. An argument ensued, 
which resulted in my being al- 
lowed to stay there for the time 
it would take to unload the jugs; 
a rare turn of events. 

— Toward the end of the sum- 
mer, I witnessed a day of nearly 
unbelievable events. It was the 
day our new Freshmen were 
being "greeted" to our campus 
for the start of their orientation 
period. It was raining hard and 
steadily that day and time after 
time the same series of events 
would take place: 

Dad would pull up in front of 
the assigned dorm with his son 
and the rest of the family. He 
would hop out of the car and 
run to the trunk, rain hat on his 
head if he had one, and throw it 
open to start unloading. Then, 
there was the sound of that shrill 
whistle again, and an approach- 
ing officer. Each time, the fam- 
ily would be instructed to drive 
to the student parking lot and 



proceed to unload from there. 
Then would be seen the student, 
his mom, dad, sisters and broth- 
ers walking cross-campus from 
parking lot to dorm while load- 
ed down with clothing, suit cases, 
lamps, radios, tv.'s, etc., and try- 
ing to hold newspapers or plas- 
tic sheets over themselves and 
their t^longings, futilely at- 
tempting to stay dry in the 
downpour. Heaven only knows 
how many colds and maybe 
worse illnesses resulted from 
that day. 

— Just before our Ian h Sylvia 
concert this past Homecoming 
weekend, those responsible for 
the outdoor lighting were driv- 
ing the big 5-foot-tall spot light 
to the college bowl, when they 
were stopped and told to bring 
the light to the student parking 
lot, from where they could carry 
it to the extreme opposite cor- 
ner of the campus. They had to 
disassemble the light just to 
lug it from where it was being 
stored in Work Hall to a waiting 
car. Were they really supposed 
to risk herniation by carrying it 
across the campus? It's a good 
thing they disregarded the or- 
ders, or Ian & Sylvia might have 
been performing in the dark. 

— I know of four or five in- 
stances where our instructors 
have pulled up to the parking 
lot behind Segal Hall for a class, 
and finding it full, pulled off on 
the side of the road out of the 
way of traffic. Upon returning 
to their car after their lecture, 
they found their windshield dec- 
orated with a ticket. I suppose 
the profs could have traveled 
to another parking area, but by 
the time they did, and walked 
back to the building, their stu- 
dents would have waited their 
ten minutes and left. 

— Friends and relatives of the 
boys on campus find themselves 
in an unreal situation when they 
reach the school. Should the 
TWO parking spaces on campus 
allotted for visitors be filled with 
the cars of salesmen or other 
visitors, they can park nowhere 
else on campus legally. Their 
only recourse is to drive back to 
Doylestown, park in a metered 
space and walk or hitch-hike the 
two miles back to campus — or 
be ticketed. 

This list includes just a portion 
of the examples which I could cite, 
but I would have to publish my 
own paper if I added many more. 

The purp>ose of this article is not 
to talk down the Miley Men on 
our campus. Although I think they 
could use better judgement in 
many instances, they have their 
set of regulations to which they 
must adhere. It is the nature of 
these regulations which seem to

me to be unreasonably stringent. 

Would it not be a hetXev idea to 
lay down a strip of pavement 15 
or 20 feet wide along roads ad- 
jacent to each dorm for loading 
and unloading, than it is to ticket 
each car that rides through or stops 
on campus roads? This could be 
easily accomplished near Work, 
Elson, Cook, Barness, and Wolf- 
sohn Halls, as well as near the new 
dorms. 

Friends and visitors must cer- 
tainly leave this campus with a 
bitter taste in their mouths, and a 
sense of being something other 
than welcome when they find tick- 
ets on their cars as they leave the 
college. 

Is it not time for a change? 

Hoping something can be done,

Food for Thought 

Many times in the life of a col- 
lege student, one looks for some- 
thing as a guide line to follow. As I 
was visiting the room of Ron Ber- 
lin, I found a list of statements 
which do give some "food for 
thought" and the list does offer 
some guide lines for all times. 

I thought that I would pass 

along some of these statements to 

the rest of the students and faculty. 

The Best Day — ^Today 

The Best Town — Where you 

succeed 
The Best Work— What You

The Best Play — ^Work 
The Best Teacher— One Who

On February 11, Delaware Val- 
ley will have a day set aside, — a 
day called Gary Hunter Day. The 
Furrow and its staff whole-heart- 
edly support the efforts made by 
the Athletic Department and your 
Student Government in trying to 
help a former student 

Kidney disease, like cancer and 
heart disease, is one of the unsolved 
mysteries of medicine. We can all 
share in the effort to help save 
Gary's life, and perhaps in this 
way take a long step toward the 
conquest of this disease. The price 
for prolonged medical services 
adds up to a staggering simi. How- 
ever through supporting Gary 
Hunter Day we can make the 
burden a little easier to bear. 



With the end of a five day vaca- 
tion at hand we can look forward to 
the return of an old breed of stu- 
dent, — the campus griper. He is 
the guy who has a lot to say about 
everything but no time to help 
out, the guy who is free with ad- 
vise and wisecracks. He is the 
one who takes a short cut over the 
lawns with his car or cycle be- 
cause he thinks it's «)ol to show 
off to his buddies (at midnight) 
that HE isn't afraid of getting 
caught, the guy who must leave 
beer cans in conspicuous places so 
that all may see that a rule was 
broken. 

To the campus griper I say with 
all sincerity that things are a lot 
better than you will ever admit 
so let's try and keep it that way. 
Support your school. Like your 
mouth it's the only one you have.

THE FURROW 



Assemblies Feature Variety For ^67 




The Glee Club members putting ttwir best voice torward during their hat Chri$tma$ 
concert which wm» pertormed in the new Mandell Hall ScietKe Building. 



The Delaware Valley College 
Glee Club has completed another 
successful fall season in rendering 
twelve programs. The group has 
performed for more than 4,500 
people. 

Some of the organizations for 
whom the Club performed are: 
The Viet-Nam War Veterans, the 
Doylestown Village Improvement 
Association, the Doylestown East- 
ern Stars and the Plumsteadville 
Grange. 

A new group was added to the 
list of audiences when the Club 
sang for students of the Memorial 
Nursing Home. This concert was 
followed by an impromptu party- 
mixer which not only proved to be 
a great change of pace but also 
brought about a host of new 
friendships. 

Of the ten numbers rendered by 
the group, the favorites were: Ad- 
oration of the Magi, Christmas was 
Meant for Children, See That 
Babe and Twas the Night Before 
Christmas. 



The D.V.C. Quartet composed 
of Brian Steager, Ira Walker, Bob 
Jones and Jim Kerr sang two num- 
bers entitled "Kissing Bridge** and 
"All Thro' The Night." 

A trio composed of Brian Steag- 
er, Walter Bobb, and Donald 
Brockley sang such favorites as 
"Souling" and "Sing Along with 
Santa". 

John Kline sang a solo entitled 
•♦The Birthday of a King". 

As they have in previous years, 
the Glee Club recorded their num- 
bers for broadcast over radio sta- 
tion WNTV. 

The last concert of the *66 fall 
season was given here at the col- 
lege. This was the first program 
rendered in the auditorium of 
Mandell Hall and in general the 
facilities are adequate for our fu- 
ture use. 

With spring rapidly approach- 
ing, the D.V.C. Glee Club is look- 
ing forward to having an even bet- 
ter spring session than the fall. 
Some of the groups for whom the 
club hopes to perform are Holy 
Family College, Gwynedd-Mercy 
College, Memorial Nursing School 
and our annual "A Day" Concert. 



Thespians Headline Program 



On December 7 of last year, the 
Delaware Valley College Faculty 
and Student Body were treated to 
the delightful acting of the Carra- 
dines. This duo composed of Rich- 
ard Carradine and his wife Jaclyn 
Lord, performed their scenes with 
the poise and grace displayed by 
those actors who are of higher 
status and acclaim. So intriguing 
were their performances that they 
captured the attention of the ma- 
jority of D.V.C. students, even 
those who normally condemn such 
talents as being "for the birds". 

The scenes performed were from 
three plays, "The Brownings", 
"Joan of Arc and Charles", and 
"Queen Elizabeth and Lord Essex". 

In the first set of scenes, "The 
Brownings", they tell the story of 
the romance of Elizabeth Barrett 
and Robert Browning, their meet- 
ing, courtship and their decision 
to escape the evils of Elizabeth's 
tyrannical father. 

The second set, an amusing 
episode of "Joan of Arc and Char- 
les", the French heroine persuades 
Charles, eldest son of the French 
King to deliver the French Army 
into her hands. 

For their last performance, the 
versatile twosome did a scene from 
"Queen Elizabeth and Lord Essex". 
This was the story of an aging 
queen and a youthful soldier's 
trifle for her kingdom, a tense 



scene which pitted ambition 
against love. 

These are just a few of the 
scenes being performed by the 
Carradines this fall. Some of their 
others are, "Rudolf vonHapsburg 
and Elena", "Laura and Jim", "He 
and She", and "Queen Victoria 
and Prince Albert". 

The greatness of these two fine 
young actors is shown in the many 
roles they have portrayed in major 
plays. Following in the steps of his 
ancestors, Richard Carradine has 
played in such greats as "Hamlet," 
"Romeo and Juliet", "Richard III," 
and "Othello." 

Jaclyn Lord, while not having 
the strone. theater background of 
her hustrand is a determined ac- 
tress. This is characterized by her 
studies of drama at the University 
of Colorado and Goodman Mem- 
orial Theater in her preparation 
for the stage. She has complimen- 
ted her efforts by earning roles in 
such plays as "Inherit the Wind", 
"The Lady's Not For Burning". 

This assembly was one of a 
series that will provide the student 
body with a variety (rf forms of 
entertainment. The enthusiasm 
with which these programs have 
been accepted indicates the con- 
trast of interest which is to be 
found here. We certainly hope to 
continue such delight in the fu- 
ture.

In Jest- 
Pot Easy to Spot? 

The average Del Val student 
often finds devious means of ex- 
pressing dissatisfaction with the 
administration. The following is 
such a reaction to a recent effort 
to confiscate all illegal utensils. 

Does D.V.C have a pot prob- 
lem? Yes, and allegedly it is cen- 
tered around Barness Hall. That is 
the notion of oiw fellow, who inci- 
dently makes his residence in 
Barness. He thinks that if every- 
one who has his own pot were to 
use it, the whole place would go up 
in smoke! Therefore, he has insti- 
tuted a search and aeizure cam- 
paign. The moral, ''Don't make 
your pot easy to spott"

Farm Show 
'67 

To just about any student at 
Delaware Valley College January 
means the beginning of a new year, 
but to the Animal Husbandry it 
means that the Farm Show is just 
around the corner. The Farm Show, 
was held this year from January 
9th through 13th at the Farm Show 
Building in Harrisburg. It is held 
for residents of the state of Penn- 
sylvania, and no other persons can 
participate in the exibitions and 
contest 

This year the Animal Husbandry 
Department sent thirteen head of 
beef — eleven head of Angus and 
two head of Herefords. The Col- 
lege also sent up eight head of 
Sheep, made up of the Hampshire 
and Cheviot Breeds. 

A big hope this year is a two 
year old son of Keystone Bardo- 
lieremere 91, shown by Lee Wag- 
ner, our Herdsman. It is thought 
that we might bring home a Grand 
Champion Ribbon with this Bull. 

Last year the Animal Husband- 
ry Department won over three hun- 
dred dollars in prize money, the 
studenti showing this year feel 
that they will be able to top last 
jrear's prws m<H«ey. 



meeting was held in the wrestling 
room in the basement of Ulman 
Hall, where the club will meet 
every Monday and Wednesday of 
every week. About ten people are 
now members and the doors are 
open to all those with an avid in- 
terest in the art of Judo. If you 
are considering joining, contact 
Ron Ramaka at rocrni 309 Ulman

'67 
Assembly Season 

by Richard Funt 

The assemblies, I hope, have 
proved to be very interesting and 
enjoyable to the students this past 
semester. For the first time money 
was set aside in the budget for two 
special assemblies which would be 
entertaining and would enrich the 
life of the student body. 

In our spring semester, we have 
our regular assemblies which have 
t}ecome a tradition. Some of these 
assemblies include the Animal 
Husbandry and Dairy Awards, 
Founder's Day, Band Concert, Stu- 
dent Government election, and 
Spring Sports. 

Along with these assemblies, we 
hope to have one with a Peace 
Corps representative, and one big 
special assembly. At the present 
time we have the following dates 
set for our assemblies. 

February 1 — Animal Husbandry 
and Dairy Awards 

February 15 — Founder's Day 

February — Peace Corps 

March — Special 

April — Band Concert 

April 26 — Student Oovemmeiit 

May 10 — Spring Sports 



A national magazine has an an- 
nual jazz poll; newspapers have the 
Harris Survey; politicians have the 
Gallup Poll. The Furrow now of- 
fers to D.V.C. students the oppor- 
tunity to express their choices and/ 
or opinions on various contem- 
porary topics, beginning with this 
month's Pop Record review. 

Reporter Tim Berman asked a 
number of Aggies to name their 
three favorite songs of 1966, and 
here is the consensus of the top 
records with their artists: 

1. Cheireh AMOckition 

2. California Dreamin' Mamai & Pipas 

3. Monday Monday Mamas 8i Papas 

4. Reach Out 111 Be There Four Tops 

5. Can't Hurry Lov« Supreme* 

6. What Becomes of the

7. Lightning Strikes Lou Christie 

8. Ain't Too Proud To 

Beg Temptations 

9. You Keep Me Hangin' On Supr«nes 
10. Devil With A Blue 

Dress Mitch Ryder 

There was a total of 50 records 
named. One out of three dies had 
the "Motown Sound" (Detroit), 
and only one of nine came from 
the British Isles, a reflection on the 
retirement of The Beatles (the 
boys still had three platters named, 
but none were in the nmning). It 
should be noted that over half of 
the records named were sung by 
newcomers to the record industry. 
Many, such as The Association, the 
Mamas bt the Papas, and The 
Monkees, as well as Donavin and 
Jimmy Ruffin, are already estab- 
lished stare.

Debating 
Looking Forward 
To A Good Year 

by Richard Funt 

With the debating season re- 
opening in February, the Dela- 
ware Valley College debating team 
has chosen co-captains for prospec- 
tive debates. Each member will 
alternate in being co-captain, thus 
each member receives a chance to 
show, develop, and express his 
leadership abilities. 

The varsity team, consisting of 
last year's members, will host a 
practice debate with Holy Family 
College debators sometime in early 
January or February. The team 
members of both sides will give 
"critiques" of each speaker. This 
helps to smooth out mistakes in 
thought and to create a more effec- 
tive team. 

The debating team also has re- 
ceived four applications for en- 
trance into the society. Each appli- 
cation consists of a questionaire 
which the team members analyze. 
The new members will be accept- 
ed pending a 2/3 vote of the team.

Valley College "Spring Weekend". 
The Friday night highlight will be 
a concert by the famous Isley Bro- 
thers; it will start promptly at eight 
o'clock. 

Tlie Isley Brothers, Ronald, 
Rudolph, and OlCelly made fame

as their initial Motown recording. 
Other singles include Take Some 
Time Out For Love" and "I Guess 
r\\ Always Love You".

o'clock. The Philadelphia Jesters 
basketball team will oppose some 
of our more (athletic?) faculty in 
what promises to be an unforget- 
table event 

Saturday evening at eight o'clock 
the Class of '68 will present a 
dance entitled "Spring Fever". 
Men attending the dance are re- 
quired to wear a jacket and tie 
while their dates may wear party 
dresses.

B-Ball Battle 
Betides March 10 



There is going to be trouble! 
Trouble, right here. Right here on 
the D.V.C. campus. Right here in 
the heart of Aggie Land. 

There are rumors spreading 
around that the faculty is going all 
out and getting down to 'Top 
Brass" tacks to see how they can 
win the basketball game against 
the comical Philadelphia Jesters on 
Saturday, March 11th, at 1:30 
P.M. 

Rumors and even various reli- 
able sources are saying that Mr. 
Adelson is turning . Mandell into 
a gymnasium for the faculty to 
practice in secret down in the base- 
ment. Things get hot, especially 
when the ball gets stuck on top of 
the boiler. 

"Coach" Linta believes the team 
stands a chance, if Mr. Sauer can 
keep the coffee hot while the rest 
play. 



Dr. French is assisting "Coach" 
Linta, and is getting all the "bugs" 
worked out in the defensive and 
offensive plays. 

Meanwhile, Dr. Feldstein is 
down to the "core" of everything. 
He, along with Dr. Blumenfield, be- 
lives that we can "move out" and 
be "ahead" at the very outset of the 
game. He is confident that we have 
ample time to prepare ourselves. 

What do the Jesters believe? 
"Slick Evans" thinks that the situa- 
tion could get very sticky. "Nature 
Boy" believes "things could get 
very tense." "Bozo Walker's" opin- 
ion is that "this is no joking mat- 
ter." 

Admission to this "Battle of the 
Brass" is free to all D.V.C. students. 
Guests are a dollar and if you buy 
a Package Deal the guest pays only 
50 cents. 



Freshman Customs Given 'New Look' 



Student Government in the past 
few weeks has been reworking 
Freshman Customs to bring them 
up-to-date — to take them out of 
the Hollywood version of life at 
institutions of higher learning, and 
make them serve a useful purpose. 
We are all acquainted, unfortunate- 
ly, with the spirit which has burned 
in the manly breast of the soph- 
omore who hat seen in them the 
opportunity to redress some of the 
humiliations — actual or imaginary 



— he suffered as a freshman. Many 
a little man (not necessarily little 
in stature) has exerted the small 
authority conferred on him by 
freshman customs, and has been the 
loudest in bawling instructions at 
the hapless freshman delivered by 
those customs into his hands. He 
has been in the forefront of the 
self-appointed sophomore bands 
roving the campus after midnight 
and gleefully yelling "All out, 
(Continued on page 5, column 2) 



Beware Of 
^Spring Fever' 

Spring Fever usually arrives 
with the season's first balmy breeze, 
or is contracted by riding in a 
"topless" convertible. Whatever its 
means of spreading, the Junior 
Class hopes that the majority of 
our students contract this delight- 
ful condition on March 11. That is 
the date they are sponsoring their 
dance, logically called, "Spring 
Fever". The epidemic will center 
around Neumann Gymnasium from 
8:30 untU 12:30 P.M. 

That will, of course, be the last 
event of our big Spring Week-end, 
originated by this year's clever 
Student Government, and held in 
conjunction with the Sophomore 
Class Concert 

Students who contract "The 
Fever" will have light dancing feet 
as a primary symptom. The quintet 
assembled in the Gym should be a 
welcome remedy. The delightfully 
well balanced group consists of an 
organ, sax, trumpet, guitar, and 
drums, and is known as "The Other 
Guys". They promise to be active 
enough to satisfy a wide variety 
of dancing tastes.

Gary Hunter 
Day a Success 

The shut-out victory of the 
D.V.C. wrestling team, the smash- 
ing triumph of the Aggie Basket- 
ball team, and most of all the gener- 
osity of contributors throughout the 
East, made this day the big suc- 
cess it was. It was a real tribute to 
one courageous human being, Gary 
Hunter. Students, faculty, alumni 
and the board of trustees joined 
hands with people from all walks 
of life to selflessly give their time 
and money in Gary's hour of need. 
They helped swell the grand total 
to 3,000 -f. The monies received 
at the gate alone totaled over 
$400 as nearly 1,000 people

Letters to the Editor 



Editor's Note: We refer the 
reader to the December, 1966 
issue. 

HEADQUARTERS UNIT 

94th Evacuation Hospital 

Fort Lewis, Washington 98433 

19 January 1967 

Mr. Richard Dunning 
c/o Furrow Editor 
Delaware Valley College of 
Science and Agriculture 
Doylestown, Pennsylvania 

Dear Mr. Dunning: 

It is indeed sad that you are a 
"tired citizen." What newspapers 
have you been reading? The theme 
of your dissertation reminds me of 
the pseudointellectual dolts oozing 
around large universities these 
days. A mathematical analogy 
should demonstrate: (music: Mrs. 
Miller: intellect: "typical" large 
university students). 

To be sure, I am prejudiced; 
however, I challenge your most 
bombastic insert: ". . . tired of see- 
ing young men with bright futures 
getting killed in a senseless police 
action. . ." In a spare moment of 
nninimum cerebral activity, find 
yourself a Merriam-Webster and 
look up the word insurgency. From 
this basic beginning, and an accept- 
ance of the fact that the number- 
one premise of communistic po- 
litical philosophy is to phagocytize 
the world, do some research re- 
garding life in Russia, China, and 
Germany. 

I am sure our men in Viet Nam 
(and I am not ashamed to use such 
trite phrases as "our men") might, 
in fact, castrate you if you related 
your thoughts to them. No doubt, 
you are quite innocent of any pre- 
meditated deleterious motives, but 
curiously your sarcastic apathy is 
taken almost verbatim from psy- 
chological warfare propaganda used 
by the Viet Cong against U.S. 
troops fighting for American de- 
mocracy and supporting our "pol- 
itician President." 

If you are tired, exercise, but 
when you flex your mental muscles 
to overcome your boredom, please 
direct your blows along the right 
trajectory. Let D.V.C. remain the 
Unique Institution that it has al- 
ways been; keep campus b.s. clean. 

Sincerely, yours, 
F. C. BLANK 02328296 ('64)

P.S. You may publish this letter. 



Delaware Valley College 
Doylestown, Pennsylvania 
January 23, 1967 

F. C. Blank 02328296 
2TL, Medical Service Corps 
94th Evacuation Hospital 
Fort Lewis, Washington 

Dear Mr. Blank: 

I am taking time from studying 
for finals to write to you; I feel 
your letter worthy of a reply. 

No doubt your condemnation of 
my expressions on the Viet Nam 
war was fitting. When I wrote that 
article for the Furrow I was 
genuinely ashamed of some things 
that happened and were happening 
in our country: the negro riots, the 
assassination of President Ken- 
nedy, the welfare system, and I'm 
sure you've heard of Adam Clay- 
ton Powell. The Viet Nam war had 
also been in the news daily. I have 
no doubts in my mind that I should 
have let the article sit for awhile 
until I cooled off, at which time I 
should have critically analyzed 
what I wrote. The only thing I 
would have changed was my com- 
ment on the Viet Nam war. 

I am quite aware of the com- 
munist goal of world domination. I 
am somewhat aware of what life 
in Russia, China, and Germany is 
like. I am quite sure the goal of 
both Communist China and North 
Viet Nam is domination of South 
Viet Nam. When I think of this 
and the fact that our men are fight- 
ing in Viet Nam, certain questions 
come into my mind. Why is the 
United States always the country 
to defend these countries threaten- 
ed with communist domination? 
You say and I may agree that if 
we don't defend these countries 
who will? If this is true and we 
agree with this, why must the war 
be dragged out? Why not elevate 
the war for a quick end? It may be 
my complete lack of knowledge 
of military tactics which accounts 
for why I cannot understand the 
reason that this war is not elevated. 
The statement ". . tired of seeing 
young men with bright futures get- 
ting killed in a senseless police 
action", was a hastily written ex- 
aggeration of the thought: why are 
these men dying in a war which 
could and should be ended quick- 
ly. 

I do not claim to be an intellec- 
tual and I'm not a dolt. All I wrote 
in that article was what I believe. 
All that I wrote can be fairly well 
substantiated by fact except my 
feelings about President Johnson 
which is my opinion and interpreta- 
tion of fact. 

No doubt you suspect me of 
being a draft card burner. I am not 
a draft card burner and would not 



think of doing such a thing. Be- 
lieve me, I am not opposed to going 
into the army. I am concerned 
about going to Viet Nam, but any- 
one who says that he has no queezy 
feelings about going there is a liar; 
nobody faces the possibility of dy- 
ing without some second thoughts. 
Please do not misinterpret my 
thoughts. If I am drafted or if I 
join, which I may do, I will not 
fight or complain about going to 
Viet Nam; I will accept it as what 
I must do. I just cannot get too 
enthusiastic about the prospect of 
killing another person or being kill- 
ed. 

As far as your letter is concern- 
ed, I could refrain from printing 
it; thus leaving my record clean 
from opposition. Freedom of the 
press and the right to have oppos- 
ing views have been character- 
istics of our country since its be- 
ginnings. Therefore your letter will 
be printed with no objections on 
my part. Along with your letter, 
this letter will be printed in hopes 
that I may partially correct my 
hastily written comment about the 
Viet Nam war. 

Before I close I would like to ask 
you a few questions. Are you satis- 
fied with the Warren Report on 
President Kennedy's assassination? 
Do you think it is correct to have 
Adam Clayton Powell seated in 
Congress in view of his behavior? 
Have you ever heard of govern- 
ment investigation by means of 
wire-tap, bugging devices, etc.? 
Have you never heard of first class 
mail, which is supposed to be so 
private its almost sacred, being 
opened by post office officials? Do 
you think the negro has all the 
rights that he is entitled to? Do 
you think our welfare system 
should support an unwed mother 
with five or six children? Are the 
men in Viet Nam fighting for the 
right to castrate me because my 
ideas differ from theirs? 

What do you suppK)se I do about 
things that are obviously wrong, 
sit back and accept them? If I 
could vote I would have one way 
of expressing my views. I feel my 
only recourse is to write about 
such things so as to bring them into 
the view of many people. 

I hope you have read this letter 
with an open mind. I also hope 
that you don't still consider me a 
pseudointellectual dolt. Please feel 
free to write to me if I have not 
been clear. 

Sincerely yours, 
Richard Dunning '67 

P.S. What do you mean by "keep- 
ing campus b.s. clean?" Do you 
mean free of politics? 



Editorials 

Since the spring of 1966, Del- 
aware Valley College has built 
three buildings, Mandell Science 
Building, Dorm I, and Dorm II. 
At this time most of the facilities 
and fixtures are in. The three build- 
ings are the "mosf in modem 
standards, and they are very beau- 
tiful, let alone very expensive. We, 
the student body, have a lot to be 
proud of whenever we use the 
facilities. Yet there has been ex- 
treme abuse of all facilities in all 
the dormitories and other build- 
ings. 

The Student Government has 
spent quite a lot of money to equip 
the recreational rooms. In all the 
television rooms there are ash 
trays for cigarette^ and trash cans 
for the deposit of soda cans, milk 
cartons, and candy wrappers. In 
spite of this, some students think 
they are still home, and feel that it 
is all right to make these rooms 
look like pig sties. If those students 
are really of that opinion, this col- 
lege has the means to give them 
those accommodations. 

In Dorm II there is a pool room. 
Here again the Student Govern- 
ment has generously paid out 
money to have the pool tables re- 
paired. It is up to those students 
who use the pool tables to take 
care of them, so that they will last 
for an appropriate length of time. 

Mandell Science Building has 
the finest in laboratory equipment 
This equipment must last for many 
years, for use by present and fu- 
ture students. This can only be 
accomplished by setting standards 
of procedure now. It is up to every 
student to make sure the facilities 
are in working order, and to pre- 
vent others from ruining equip- 
ment. We must remember that the 
equipment that one student uses 
has to be used by another. If we 
want perfect working equipment, 
each of us must take care so that 
others will do the same. 

All the buildings on this campus 
are for the use by the students. 
There are rooms for those who 
don't feel like studying, and there 
are rooms for those who do. What- 
ever group you may be in, keep 
the buildings in good condition be- 
cause there will be many more 
students to follow you.

DEBATING OUTLOOK 

Richard Funt 

The debating season has started 
and our team is now gathering ma- 
terial from all sources. Resolved: 
That the United States should sub- 
stantially reduce its foreign policy 
commitments is certainly a timely 
topic. Everyday some one is talk- 
ing about our foreign policy and 
whether it is doing a good job or 
not. 

The team is scheduling debates 
at the University of Long Island 
once again this year. Plans are 
being made to attend a tournament 
at Rutgers of South Jersey, and a 
very big tournament at ^e Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania. 

The season looks exciting for the 
team members. We hope that we 
can bring back a few awards for 
the college. 



Gary Hunter (cont.) 

streamed into Neumann Gym- 
nasium to see the Aggies "walk 
over" Eastern Baptist. The cere- 
monies, and basketball game were 
carried live via radio station 
WBUX, and the Daily Intelli- 
gencer carried the full story in its 
February 13th issue. The ceremon- 
ies began wtih a prayer for Gary 
conducted by Rev. Ronald Raught, 
Pastor of New Britain Baptist 
Church. The program continued 
with Mr. Ned Linta, who explained 
how Gary Hunter Day came to be 
realized. Furthermore, he revealed 
that Gary had lapsed into a very 
critical condition as the result of a 
cardiac arrest suffered a few days 
before. The next speaker was Mrs. 
Sarah Wililams, representing the 
Southeastern Chapter of the Red 
Cross Assurance Program. She 
stated that 190 students had given 
blood at D.V.C. this year. She was 
followed by Mrs. Perry Avery 
Bond who has been connected with 
the Red Cross for almost 50 years. 
Mrs. Bond presented the honor 
roll of D.V.C. blood donors to Mr. 
Linta. Dean Fulcoly then intro- 
duced the President of the Student 
Body, Dave Spinella, who present- 
ed the gate receipts to Rev. Harold 
R. Eaken, Pastor of Progress Im- 
manual Presbyterian Church, near 
Harrisburg, as well as Statewide 
Chairman of the Gary Hunter 



MUSIC AT D.V.C. 

Richard Funt 

Not many students realize what 
the Glee Club has been doing for 
the college as far as spirit and pro- 
motion is concerned. In the 1965- 
66, season our estimated total aud- 
ience for 15 concerts was over 
7,000 people. In the first semester 
of the 1966-67 year, the Glee Club 
has estimated its audiences to be 
over 4,000 people. 

The number of people is im- 
portant, but the compliments and 
letters I have received are beyond 
a count of people. Grade school 
children wrote letters asking us to 
come back again. People from 
Doylestown are always interested, 
when Christmas comes, where the 
Glee Club will sing. Our reputation 
has spread so large and wide that 
we must turn down many requests 
for concerts. Right now for ex- 
ample, we have 4 requests for April 
and we only plan on 5 concerts in- 
cluding one or ix)ssibly two for A- 
Day. 

Mrs. Buckman, our director, and 
the officers really make the Glee 
Club what it is today. I wish and 
sincerely hope that the Glee Club 
continues to be one of best am- 
bassadors of the college. 

The new officers are: 

James Sickora — President 
Ira Walker — Vice President 
Brian Steager — Secretary

Foundation. The Reverened also 
conducted the benediction for Gary. 
Mr. Ford Bothwell, Sports Editor 
with the Daily Intelligencer, pre- 
sented a scrap book of Gary's 
achievements with blank pages in 
the hope that Gary inay someday 
be able to fill them. Dr. James 
Work, President of the College, 
then presented a check for $2,186 
to Rev. Eaken. This amount repre- 
sented only a part of the contribu- 
tions. At the end of the proceed- 
ings the Union Horse Company 
of Doylestown Township and Vi- 
cinity presented its contributions 
totaling $283.65. 

Mr. Ralph Hunter, Gary's father, 
was to have been one of the speak- 
ers at the ceremonies; however 
owing to the very critical condition 
of his son, he was unable to attend. 
In a brief interview with Rev. 
Eaken, this reporter asked him 
what were Gary's chances for life. 
The Reverend stated that doctors 
at that time still had a thread of 
hope that Gary would live. In the 
event, however, of Gary's death,

AGRONOMY CLUB 

Joseph Rothschild 

On February 9, 1967, the Agron- 
omy Club was called to order by 
President Munson for the last time. 
At this meeting, the election of 
new officers for this semester and 
next semester were held. The can- 
didates for President, Rob Kalm- 
backer and Steve Baluch, gave 
speeches outlining what they would 
do for the club. Each speech was 
very good, and both were well 
presented. After the speeches were 
made the club members proceeded 
to elect Steve Baluch for President. 
Following this election, elections 
were held for Vice-President, Secre- 
tary, Treasurer, "A-Day" Repre- 
sentative, Intramural Representa- 
tive, Activities Chairman, Publica- 
tions Representative, and Corres- 
ponding Secretary. The officers and 
representatives are as follows in 
order of the above. Randel Peiffer, 
Leonard Tritt, Jim Sickora, Ted 
Blew, Tom Scudder, Rob Kalm- 
backer, Joe Rothschild, and George 
Meyers. 

President Munson thanked all 
the members who have helped him 
throughout the year. The members 
would at this time like to thank 
Mr. Munson for his outstanding 
leadership. 



On Thursday, the 16, the Agron- 
omy Club joined with the Soil Con- 
servation Society for a banquet. _. 
The banquet started at 7 p.m. and | infl© (cont.) 
concluded at 10 p.m. The guest 
speaker was Dr. Bailor. He spoke 
on Grassland Agriculture in South 
America. He has worked with other 
people on experiments with new 
varieties of grasses and legumes. 
Part of his work took him to Brazil. 
This area, in his opinion has great 
potential. In order to realize this 
potential the land must be fertil- 
ized. Dr. Bailor also described with 
the help of slides, the towns on the 
coast. 



SCIENCE SOCIETY 

Jon Greene 

The 42 nd meeting of the Science 
Society was held Feb. 16th, at 7:00 
p.m. The first order of business 
was elections. Stepping down as 
Vice President was Robert Kufta, 
Sec, Don Weiser, Treas., Al Au- 
warter, Intramural Rep., John Mc- 
Cafferty and Special Events Chair- 
man, Mark Wolfe. As President I 
would like to take this opportunity 
to thank these officers for their help 
and support. 

Kevin Keim was elected Presi- 
dent, Bill Dougherty, Vice Presi- 
dent, Sec, Bill Lockridge, Paul 
Kiry, Treas. and Don Stump was 
elected Intramural Representative. 
The past executive committee and 
I would like to wish these new 
officers success and a good year. 

It was decided that the Science 
Society would go to the Chez 
Odette for their banquet. It's an 
"all you can eat" deal so sign up 
early. 

The club voted on a destination 
for their ufKoming trip. The nom- 
inations were as follows: first 
choice; Washington, DC, second 
choice; New York and third choice; 
Kimball Glassware in Vineland, 
N.J. 

It looks like a great ending to a 
good year, and all members are 
urged to participate.

payment of Gary's medical bills. 
The remainder of the money would 
either go into kidney research, or 
perhaps a kidney machine would 
be bought in Gary's honor. Rev- 
erend Eaken said that he started 
the fund; when, upon returning 
from a vacation in August an asso- 
ciate told him of the extreme fi- 
nancial drain on Gary's parents.

Gary's recovery, but if the Lord's

will not have been in vain. Gary. 
by his strength and courage in the 
face of death, and by his help to 
medical research, has given hope 
to all those suffering from kidney 
disorders. 



Attire for the dance can best 
be described as "Dressy". Suits or 
dark sport coats and ties for fel- 
lows, and corresponding clothes 
for girls such as a suit or similar 
dress. 

So remember, should the fever

good healthful dancing. We must 
warn you however, this treatment 
may be habit forming.

THE WORLD OF SPORTS 
(All and Ernie) 

On February 6th, I headed for 
Philadelphia's Civic Center to 
throw down six bucks to watch 
Muhammad AH and Ernie Terrell 
fight for the heavyweight champ- 
ionship of the world. It was not my 
firat exposure to the closed circuit. 
If you can't be at the fight in per- 
son this is the next best thing. 

Many ask, why not wait and see 
the re-run on TV? But here you 
miss the greatest part of a heavy- 
weight championship fight, that is, 
the buzz, and anticipation of the 
crowd waiting for the fighters to 
come into the ring, the excitement 
and cheering of the crowd when 
they enter, and the general excite- 
ment of the fight itself. I have seen 
more crowd excitement at closed 
circuit showings than at the live 
fights. This comes from so closely 
seeing the fight on the large, forty- 
foot screen. Watching the re-run on 
television is like going to see a 
movie someone has told you about. 
This is the thing that makes spec- 
tator sports what they are, that is, 
the excitement of being there, right 
on top of the action. 

By now, you all know what hap- 
pened and have heard the different 
stories of the fight I have seen 
many fights and the only person I

Aggie Court Action 

The Aggie basketball team goes 
into the final three games of the 
current season with an overall rec- 
ord of 8 wins and 9 losses. Upon 
reflecting back on the season there 
have been many bright spots, and 
then again, there have also been 
some pretty black moments as 
well. I feel that although the team 
record may not reflect the quality 
of ball the team is capable of play- 
ing, that our young and inexper- 
ienced team will come back next 
season and fulfill the high expecta- 
tions that we all had for them this 
season. Regardless of the record, 
no one can deny the fact that the 
whole team has worked many long, 
hard houra and that Coach Silan 
has tried his best to make this a 
successful season. 

The Greyhounds of Moravian 
College bested the Aggies by the 
score of 81 to 55. The Greyhounds 
jumped out to an early lead and 
DVC was never able to catch them. 
At half time, Moravian had a 43 to 
24 lead. 

By taking a quick look at the 
score, one would think that the 
Aggies were outclassed by a much 
superior team. But, this is not the 
case, for as Coach Silan put it, **the 
team played one of the poorest 
games of the season." The Coach 
partly blamed the long semester 
lay-off for the lack of sharpness of 
the team. 

The Moravian defense managed 
to stop our big guns. 0\ir big three, 
Seiferth, Eisel, and Dougherty only 
managed to score a total of 29 
points between the three of them. 
DVC decisioned the Colonels of 
Wilkes 81 to 71. The firat half of 
the game was very close, but the 
Aggies mustered a slight lead at 
intermission, 39 to 33. During the 
second half, DVC blew a 10 point 
lead, but a sudden scoring spurt 
put us up by 15 and Wilkes was 
never able to catch us again. 

Bill Eisel played one of his most 
outstanding games as he rallied for 
34 points. Bill made 10 field goals 
and was deadly on the foul line as 
he recorded 14 for 14 from the 
penalty stripe. Mars Seiferth also 
hit the hoop for 12 big scores and 
Frosh Sam lancale rolled up 10 
points in his first starting role. 

DVC played probably one of its 
best games of the season before 
a large home crowd and beat the 
Cadets of PMC 72 to 62. 

The Cadets jumped out to a 
quick 5 to 1 lead early in the first 
quarter, but our offense settled 
down and exploded for 14 big 
points and a 15 to 5 lead- Del Val 
enjoyed many large leads and 
whenever the Cadets would get 
close and endanger our lead, our 
offense managed to come up with 
the big scoring surge that would 
put us out of trouble. Coach Silan 
attributed the victory to good team 
play and a strong defense. 

Sam lancale was the leading 
scorer of the game as he tossed in

Samuel H. N ^9n 



THE TUMULT & THE SHOUTING 

In the last week I saw D.V.C. 
play three basketball games. They 
won two of these, but only because 
their opposition was so poor they 
couldnt beat many high school 
teams. What is wrong with D.V.C. 
basketball? 

Against Philadelphia Bible we 
alm(»t let the worst basketball 
team I have ever seen beat us. A 
team like Bible shouldn't be allow- 
ed on the court Eastern Baptist 
wasn't much better, although they 
did have a couple of beys who 
knew that the object of the game 
is to put the ball in the basket 

I feel we have some pretty good 
material. Mars Seiferth it a good 
guard and a fine shot, BiU Eisel is 
a good big man who would be bet- 
ter off playing outside, Dan Dough- 
erty has a real good shot, and Sam 
lancale is a great hustler, but they 
are individuals. The secret to suc- 
cess is team work and this the 
Aggies don't have. I know both 
Coaches Hartley and Silan have 
put many offensive play« in, but 
over the last three years I can 
count the number of plays I have 
seen on my fingers. 

Albright showed what team work 
can do. They weren't the greatest 
players but they really knew how 
to run their offense and this made 
them good. 

Why no team work? Well it is 
the Aggie spirit There isn't much 
enthusiasm over anything at 
D.V.C, and this is carried right out 
onto the court If you told a player 
to go out, and win one for "good 
old Del Val" he would laugh at 
you. But they don't laugh at places 
like St Joe, Villanova, UCLA, or 
almost any other school in the na- 
tion. This is part of the Aggie dis- 
ease, who givM a hoot about 
D.V.C? There is only one person 
who can, youl

RKULTS OF THE FARM SHOW 

The Animal Husbandry Depart- 
ment did an excellent job again 
this year at the Annual Pennsyl- 
vania Farm Show. The highlight 
for the students who showed came 
when the Judge of Angus Cattle, 
Mr. Gross, congratulated the stu- 
dents by sa3ring, "You are the nicest 
group of Agricultural College Stu- 
dents, doing the best job I have 
ever seen." 

In the Sheep Division the school 
entered 4 Hampshires and 3 Chev- 
iots as well as 2 Cheviot wether 
lambs in the Carcass Division. 
Hindered by their size, the school 
did not do as well as expected. The 
best the school did in Hampshires 
was a fourth in the Hampshire Ewe 
One Year Old Class. In other class- 
es we got 2 fifths, in the Get of Sire 
and Three Hampshire Ewe Lambs 
as a Group. In the Hampshire Ewe 
Lambs Class we received an eleven- 
th, twelveth, and a thirteenth. 

In the Cheviot Ewe Lambs as a 
Group we received a third place 
and with the carcass lambs we re- 
ceived a fourth and a seventh in 
the Carcass Competition. The car- 
cass of the Fourth place lamb was 
on display in the lobby of the main 
building with the College's name 
on it. 

In the Beef Cattle Division the 
school did an excellent job with 3 
firsts, 2 seconds, and 6 thirds. 

In the Horn Hereford Division 
the Summer Yearling Heifer came 
in ^cond, while the Spring Heifer 
Calf in the Polled Hereford Di- 
vision came in third in her class. 

In the Angus Division the firsts 
came in the Late Junior Yearling 
Bull Class, Junior Yearling Heifer 
Class and the Senior Yearling Heif- 
er Class. The seconds in the Angus 
came in the Senior Yearling Heifer 
Class. The thirds came in the Sen- 
ior Bull Class, Senior Yearling Bull 
Class, Best Three Bulls, Get of Sire 
and the Best Ten Head. 

The Summer Yearling Heifer 
went back into the show ring and 
became Reserve Junior Champion 
Angus Female of the show. The 
one Senior Yearling Heifer became 
Senior Champion Angus Female. 
The other Senior Yearling Heifer 
became Reserve Champion Angus 
Female of the show. 

The school also received 2 four- 
ths, 3 fifths, 1 sixth, 2 sevenths, and 
1 eighth in the Angus Division.

Freshman (conu 

Frosh" through the corridors of 
sleeping dorms. It is he who has 
laughed loudest when obscene 
odors have first penetrated the out- 
raged nostrils of freshmen intro- 
duced to Gingko Lane. Student 
Government doesn't want to rob 
ybu of any fun, pal, but we do 
think that the time has come to 
substitute more subtle and con- 
structive methods of **putting the 
Freshman in his place". For that 
place, as we see it, is a place fitting- 
ly at the bottom, but never^eless 
a worthy place, in the student 
txxly of Delaware Valley College. 
We don't want to eliminate cus- 
toms, but to give them new mean- 
ing and purpose. 

Tlie true purpose of customs at 
D.V.C. is to "aid the freshman in 
gaining a knowledge of the college, 
to promote class and college spirit, 
and to enable the freshmen to be 
come acquainted with their fellow 
students." We believe that this 
process does not require hazing, of 
the out-moded "rah-rah" type, but 
still requires that each freshman 
adhere to certain regulations which 
may at times inconvenience him 
somewhat. 

The program of customs we ad- 
vocate should start the freshman 
off on the right foot not only to- 
ward his education but toward up- 
holding the institution that will 
give it to him. Starting with so 
simple a matter as learning the 
words (and hopefully, the key) of 
"Alma Mater", we would like to 
have him progress to the realiza- 
tion that this school is on the move, 
and that despite the derogatory 
remarks he is sure to hear from 
some upperclassmen about its stu- 
dent institutions, Student Govern- 
ment is working for the students 
and with the College Administra- 
tion to solve the inevitable prob- 
lems of campus life. We all re- 
member that first day when our 
folks departed, and left us, suit- 
case in hand, to take this big for- 
ward step toward our lives as ed- 
ucated men. Those subsequent few 
days could very easily determine 
our attitudes toward studies and 
school. 

To help the freshman we have 
already set up a Big Brother Pro- 
gram, but now want to embark on 
a comprehensive program of ed- 
ucation and of class unification, not 
— as some would have it — through 
shared misery, but through the 
freshman's own initiative. Under 
our proposals, freshmen will still 
be required to wear "beanies," and 
large labels showing their names 
and major interest, to follow Ging- 
ko Lane, to keep their dorms clean, 
and to conform to "Button Frosh". 
But they will also be expected to 
participate in all activities of their 
class. 

The program will run for a 
period of three weeks, starting as 
soon as possible after the opening 
of school, and terminating with a 



bonfire and pep rally. Under some 
conditions this might obviate the 
need for another bonfire for Home- 
coming. 

All students, including transfer 
and Service men, will be required 
to take part in the customs pro- 
gram. The only exceptions will be 
made by permission of the Dean 
of Students. Those students ex- 
cused will receive special instruc- 
tions from the Dean's office. By 
this we hope to acquaint all stu- 
dents, not merely freshmen, with 
our new regulations. 

One of the biggest changes will 
come in the basic organization. 
Customs should provide the upper- 
classmen with the opportunity to 
show just what the school has to 
offer. Through it we can invite 
members into our student organ- 
izations, academic majors, and in- 
terests. We want to have these 
freshmen become a part of this 
institution as soon as p<»sible. 
This is a period of extreme adjust- 
ment, and the shorter it is, the soon- 
er freshmen and transfer students 
will feel at home. 

This program is too big to be 
run by a few. There are too many 
areas in operation at one time for 
one agency, such as the sophomore 
class, to keep in contact with every- 
thing. Therefore under this new 
program the Student Government 
will be in charge of customs. More 
than any other student organiza- 
tion on campus, Student Govern- 
ment is directly concerned with all 
student affairs. Hence from this 
body would be chosen a chairman, 
and three sub-chairmen, one for 
each class, to direct customs. It 
will be the responsibility of each 
chairman and sub-chairman to set 
up in turn a committee consisting 
of non-Student Grovernment mem- 
bers of his class, whose function it 
would be to carry out the tasks as- 
signed to them. Seniors would be 
responsible for room inspection, 
juniors for work duty, and soph- 
omores for organized cheering, the 
rope pull, and the bonfire. Under 
this breakdown the sophomores 
would have more time to devote 
to customs, and would have fewer 
headaches. 

Work duty will be held each 
afternoon from 4:30-5:30, and the 
intention will be to make the jobs 
more worthwhile. 

Cheering will be held each after- 
noon, also from 4:30 to 5:30, in 
the football stands, instead of in 
Gingko Lane in the evening. It is 
possible thereby to organize the 
freshmen better, and they can all 
see and hear what is going on. 
Moreover, the sun will still be up, 
off-campus students won't have to 
return to campus, and attendance 
can be taken with greater efficien- 
cy. We feel that more can be ac- 
complished, the songs can be learn- 
ed faster, and an opportimity can 
be given to club presidents to speak 
to the group. 



The rope pull will be held at the 
end of the second week. If the 
freshmen win, the third week of 
cheering practice will be elim- 
inated, and the time could be used 
on floats, or in some other activi- 
ties, by the clut», in preparation 
for Homecoming. 

In es^nce this is the new cus- 
toms program which the Student 
Government would like to start 
But it caniK)t work without your 
support, vote, and acceptance. 
There is nothing we can do for the 
student who feels he must sit back 
and watch the world go by. There 
is everything we can do for those 
who look for areas of improvement, 
and are willing to participate in 
improving them. 

Court Action (wnt.) 

4 for 4 on the night before missing 
his last foul shot. Bill's sharp shoot- 
ing established a new DVC record 
for the most foul shots made in a 
game and also for the most con- 
secutive foul shots scored. 

After defeating PMC, the Silan- 
men ripped into Philadelphia Col- 
lege of Bible and emerged victor- 
ious by the score of 69 to 52. The 
Aggies didn't play outstanding ball, 
but their mediocre class of ball 
was overwhelming to PCB. 

At one point in the first half, 
PCB tied Del Val 21 to 21, but our 
offense then started to jeil and we 
reeled off 14 points to PCB's 1 
point, giving us a 35 to 22 half 
time score. In the second half, PCB 
went into a full court press and for 
awhile the press had the Aggies 
licked. PCB came screaming back 
to within 7 points of our lead. DVC 
finally mastered the press and 
broke into the open, never to be 
caught by the Crusaders. 

One of the big factors of this 
game was the outstanding job our 
team did in rebounding. The big 
men for us on the boards were Bill 
Eisel, Dan Dougherty, who for his 
size picked off 12 rebounds, and 
Frosh Mat Reisen. We outrebound- 
ed PCB, 77 to 56. 

Offensively for DVC, Bill Eisel, 
in addition to his rebounding, had 
19 points. Dan Dougherty once 
again showed his shooting eye by 
tallying 17 points. Also adding to 
the scoring punch were Seiferth 
with 8, Kowalik and Reisen with 6 
each. 

In their game against Albright, 
the Aggies were outclassed and 
outplayed man for man. The Lions 
of Albright, with their accurate 
shooting and tight defense muster- 
ed a 41 to 30 lead at the half. The 
second half of the game was all 
Albright and the Lions really pour- 
ed it on as they outscored the Ag- 
gies in the second half, 47 to 27. 
The final score was Albright 88, 
DVC 57. 

The only bright spot of the game 
for Aggie rooters was the deadly 
shooting of Frosh Dan Dougherty.

Court Action (cont.) 

Dan hit numerous times from deep 
in the comer to score 21 points. 
Hie other big guns for DVC were 
Mars Seiferth who reeled off 16 
points and Bill Eisel with 14. 

The Aggies game with Eastern 
Baptist was the final event of the 
sunressful Gary Hunter I^y. The 
DVC Hoopsters were as success- 
ful as the Fund raising campaign 
as they walloped the Eagles, 79 to 
59. 

The first half of the game start- 
ed off looking like Eastern Baptist 
m^t run away with the game as 
they jumped out to a quick 10 to 
1 lead in the first quarter. The Del 
Val offense finally began to click 
and built up a 38 to 30 lead at the 
half. The second half showed that 
DVC possessed the superior team 
as the Aggies scored 41 points to 
the Eagles 29. 

Once again Dan Dougherty 
proved to all that he is one of the 
best shooters in the MAC as he 
ripped the net for 20 points. Also 
giving their support to the Del Val 
offensive were Mars Seiferth, who 
had 16 points and Bill Eisel with 
14. 



Aggies On 
The Plow 

On Monday, Feb. 6, most of the 
Aggies woke up to find a light 
dusting of snow on the ground. The 
accumulation was around 2 to 3 
inches. Even though the fall was 
light some of our professors didn't 
make it to classes. Was this little 
snowfall a warning of what was to 
come? — Yes. Because on Tuesday, 
Feb. 7, the Aggies woke up to find 
5 inches of new snow on the 
ground, which was due to accumu- 
late to a foot or more by sundown. 
All schools in Bucks and Mont- 
gomery Coun^ were closed. Our 
classes were canceled shortly there- 
after. The weatherman said that 
the snowstorm was the biggest of 
the season, bigger than the one dur- 
ing Christmas vacation. The big- 
gest storm? — Yes, but the Aggies 
were on the plow, with the John 
Deere clearing the walkways, park- 
ing lot etc. During the whole day 
the temperature never rose above 
eighteen degrees.

It might have been a different

DELAWARE VALLEY COLLEGE of Science and Agriculture 



April, 1967 




Co-Choirmen Ahn Auwater (r) and Ron Zeiner look over final plans for the Senior 
Prom. 

Dean Reminds Students of 
Financial Aid Applications 



Upperclassmen are reminded that 
they must re-apply for Financial 
Aid annually. Although the College 
catalog states that a student de- 
siring to renew his Financial Aid is 
required to re-apply no later than 
February 15 the time has been ex- 
tended this year due to lack of com- 
munication regarding this fact. This 
announcement was made by Dean 
Joseph E. Fulcoly, Jr., who is Di- 
rector of Financial Aid. 

Dean Fulcoly stated that the 
College has money available for Fi- 
nancial Aid under the National De- 
fense Student Loan Program, up to 
$1000.00 per academic year; the 
College Work Study Program and 



Campus Employment, up to 
$450.00 per year; and the Educa- 
tional Opportunity Grant Program 
(for qualified students), up to 
$800.00 per academic year. 

Interested students must apply 
through the Office of the Dean of 
Students. They must have on file, 
in that office, a current Parents' 
Confidential Statement, which has 
been processed through the Col- 
lege Scholarship Service, Princeton, 
N. J. Also, certain College forms 
must be completed. 

The deadline for filing upper- 
class applications is May 1, 1967. 
All Financial Aid is awarded on the 
basis of need. 



ATA To Give Two 
Scholastic Awards 



The Agriculture Majors of D.V.C. 
now have two scholastic awards. 
The two awards are given to a 
sophomore and a senior. 

The idea of a scholastic award 
was brought out in the Spring of 
1^6. The idea was finally passed 
by the chapter and a committee set 
up to care for the annual awards. 
Tne committee is now in the pro- 
cess of selecting award winners, 
since the qualifications are: 

1. The nominees must be ma- 
triculated students, majoring irt 
Agriculture. 



2. The nominees must have a 
cumulative average of 3.0 for 3 
semesters, in the case of a soph- 
omore, and for 7 semesters, in the 
case of a senior. 

3. The nominees must have a 
good citizenship rating. 

4. The nominees must exemplify 
leadership ability and be active in 
extra-curricular activities. 

5. The nominees must be ap- 
proved by a 2/3 vote of the society 
members. 

The awards will be presented at 
(Corainued on page 8 column 2)

Spring Weekend— A New 
Wrinkle on Campus 



A new phase of social activity 
was introduced to the Aggies on 
the weekend of March 10th. For 
the first time at D.V.C. we had our 
Spring Weekend. If you remember 
back in October when we had 
Homecoming Weekend, which has 
been done in years past, our Spring 
Weekend was just like Homecom- 
ing, except there was no parade. 
The sophomores were in charge of 
selling tickets to the student body 
for the Spring Weekend. The tick- 
ets were sold separately or sold as 
a package deal. The weather for 
the weekend was just great. The 



temperatures were warm, mostly 
in the upper sixties to low seven- 
ties. I guess you couldn't ask for a 
better weekend. 

The Spring Weekend started on 
Friday afternoon of March 10th 
with a concert. The concert fea- 
tured the Isley Brothers. TTie Isley 
Brothers are known for their song 
and dance concerts all over the 
country, and gave all who attended 
our Spring Weekend, a concert 
they will never forget. 

For all the guys who brought 
dates, Work Hall was made ready

THE FURtOW 



An All Volunteer Armed Force? 



Editort Nate: 

Because of the recent interest of all eligible males in the changes to be made in the 
draft, the "Furrow*' adced Professor Donziger to write on some of the recent develop- 
ments concerning the draft and uou. As editor I would like to thank Professor Donziger 
for ail the time and work that he put into the f(Mowing article. 

MCB. 



Prof. Alan J. Donziger 

Tliere seems to be a nearly per- 
fect correlation between the man- 
power requirements of our military 
services and protests concerning the 
method of selecting the men to 
serve. At the present time, with the 
increased demand for men to serve 
in Vietnam the protests over the 
selective service system have in- 
creased both in number and in- 
tensity. 

Six and one half months before 
the bombing of Pearl Harbor a 
Gallup Poll asked a cross section of 
our population "Do you think the 
draft has been handled fairly?" 
Ninety-three per cent answered yes 
to this question. Considering the 
controversial nature of the ques- 
tion, this is as close to unanimity as 
can be expected. In February 1967, 
10,000 college students were polled 
by the National Student Associa- 
tion. Seventy-five per cent judged 
the present selective service system 
to be unfair. 

The present selective service 
system has been criticized because 
of the inequities that exist in its 
application. Only about one half of 
the young men of military age 
(presently 19 to 26) ever serve. 
Among the middle and upper class- 
es in our society the rate is much 
lower while those who cannot a£Ford 
to go to college or who cannot get 
into college because of cultural 
deprivation have little chance of 
escaping military service. Thus, the 
argument that the selective service 
system discriminates on the basis of 
wealth (and also race since there 
is a much higher proportion of 
negroes in the lower income class- 
es) appears valid. 

When word of a presidential 
order ending deferment for men 
married after August 26, 1965, was 
made public, justices of the peace 
from New York to Las Vegas found 
young couples pounding their doors 
down in order to beat the dead- 
line. A recent New York Times 
article showed that a large propor- 
tion of these "quickie marriages" 
are finding their way to the divorce 
courts. 

Our colleges and universities 
have become havens for young men 
seeking to avoid the draft. These 
men would be more productive 
members of our society if they were 
able to exercise free choice as to 
whether to attend college or not. 
They not only waste their own time 
but they take up seats that could 
be filled by young men and women 
whose motives for attending col- 
lege are more inspired. Maybe then, 
the academic community could get 



down it its fundamental task— the 
scholarly pursuit of knowledge. 

While it is generally agreed that 
the present selective service sys- 
tem is in need of major overhaul 
there is wide disagreement as to 
the nature of the changes. There 
are at least four proposals that have 
received serious attention lately. 
These are: 

( 1 ) Modification of present sys- 
tem under the same general selec- 
tive framework. 

(2) Universal National Service. 

( 3 ) Selection by lottery. 

(4) An All Volunteer Armed 
Force. 

The president's commision on the 
draft recently recommended modi- 
fication of the existing system. They 
propose that the youngest rather 
than the oldest be drafted first. 
They also propose certain changes 
in deferments. While these changes 
might make the system more fair, 
the basic disadvantages of con- 
scription would still exist. 

Universial National Service 
would require all young men at 
age 18 to serve their country for 
two years. This service could be in 
the military or it could be in such 
activities as the Fesice Corps or 
VISTA. Service in hospitals or men- 
tal institutions would also be in- 
cluded. This proposal is by far the 
most evil choice— "regimenting all 
youth to camouflage the regimenta- 
tion of some." 

Senator Edward M. Kennedy 
and others in Congress have pro- 
posed that a national lottery be set 
up to choose the men to serve. Und- 
er this plan practically all defer- 
ments would be eliminated. Car- 
toonist Bill Mauldin recently pic- 
tured this proposal as producing an 
army "made of people who think 
of themselves as losers in a monu- 
mental crap game." 

There is no doubt, in my opinion, 
that the All Volunteer Armed Force 
is the most logical and most de- 
sirable method of "selective serv- 
ice." Why must we arbitrarily de- 
cide who will serve in the military? 
In a planned economy, the govern- 
ment planners not only decide who 
will serve in the military establish- 
ments, but also who will serve in 
the steel plants, hospitals, lumber 
camps, etc. Why must we resort to 
such an inefficient method of selec- 
tion when we have a much more 
powerful tool— the free market? 

If General Motors finds that the 
supply of skilled labor is insuffi- 
cient, then CM has only one choice 
that is, to raise the wage to a point 
where it will attract enough men to 
satisfy their needs. The free market 
is functioning to channel men to 



the segment of our economy where 
they are most needed— as measured 
by where they can attarct the high- 
est wage. 

Why not allow the free market to 
function in the selection of military 
personel? The only reason for hav- 
ing conscription is oecause the num- 
ber of volunteers falls short of the 
number of men required. Without 
the threat of the draft, the number 
of volunteers would, of course, de- 
crease further. Can there be any 
wonder why this situation exists? 
Military pay scales fall far short of 
those in private industry. 

I propose that we can supply our 
military manpower needs strictly 
through volunteers and thus elimi- 
nate the need for conscription. 
THERE IS SOME EQUILIBRIUM 
WAGE WHERE THE SUPPLY 
OF MEN WILLING TO SERVE 
IN THE ARMED FORCES 
EQUALS THE DEMAND FOR 
MEN BY THESE FORCES. Only 
the supply of men will depend on 
the wage rate. The demand for 
men which is independent of the 
wage rate (i.e., perfectly inelastic) 
will be determined by international 
relations and the state of the hot 
or cold war at the time. 

Opponents of an All Volunteer 
Armed Force say that it would be 
too costly. In testimony before a 
Senate hearing, Secretary of De- 
fense Robert McNamara said "If 
the pay ( of military personel ) were 
raised to anything approximating 
a point where it would attract a 
sufficient number of men to do 
away with the draft, I suspect it 
would add about $4 billion a year 
to the military budget. Other 
estimates have ranged as high as 
$20 billion. The most authoritative 
statement on this question to date 
seems to be one made by Prof. 
Walter Y. Oi of the University of 
Washington at the annual meeting 
of the American Economic Associa- 
tion in San Francisco this past De- 
cember. Prof. Oi estimated the ad- 
ditional cost to be about $8 billion. 
Is this too much— for a country with 
a Gross National Product ot $700 
billion— to pay for the elimination 
of the evil and unpopular practice 
of conscription? I think not. 

An All Volunteer Force would 
result in certain cost savings to the 
military. Through monetary incen- 
tives for re-enlistment, turnover 
could be minimized, thus resulting 
in a considerable saving in training 
costs. The military could now af- 
ford to be more selective about 
whom they accept— the same way 
private industry is today. With a 
higher standard of men, the final 
product would be superior, i.e., 
more bangs per dollar. 

The All Volunteer Armed Force 
will eliminate certain implicit social 
costs created by conscription. While 
these social costs are extremely 



difficult to measure, they very like- 
ly amount to more than $8 billion, 
tne amount estimated to be the 
added cost of an All Volunteer 
Armed Force. Thus, when one con- 
siders the cost to society of the 
alternatives, the All Volunteer 
Armed Force is the least expensive 
method of meeting our military 
manpower needs. 

Is there not a social cost to the 
uncertainty young men face, as they 
wait for greetings from Uncle Sam? 
Many of these young men waste 
productive years because they are 
waiting to complete their military 
obligation before seriously con- 
sidering their lifetime vocation. 
Many employers won't hire men 
who have not completed their mili- 
tary obligation. 

Elimination of conscription will 
allow young men to plan their edu- 
cation, their marriages, and their 
families on the basis of free choice 
and not on the basis of possible 
deferment. This infringement on 
free choice results in a considerable 
cost to society as measured by the 
number of college dropouts and 
divorces. 

The strongest argument for the 
All Volunteer Armed Force is that 
conscription results in the exploita- 
tion of those chosen to serve by 
society. When a man is forced to 
work at a wage lower than the wage 
he could command in the free 
market, he is being exploited. The 
difference between what this man 
could earn in the free market and 
his military pay represents a tax. If 
Muhammad Ali is drafted his tax 
might literally be several million 
dollars. Thus, in addition to all the 
other sacrifices our military men 
must make, they also are paying a 
disproportionate share of the cost 
of supporting a military establish- 
ment. 

In reference to this practice. 
Prof. Milton Friedman of the Uni- 
versity of Chicago points out "One 
of the greatest advances in human 
freedom was the commutation of 
taxes in kind to taxes in money. 
We have reverted to a barbarous 
custom. It is past time that we re- 
gain our heritage,"— Amen!

Agronomy Club 



Joseph Rothschild 

On February 23, the Agronomy 
Club had its first meeting under its 
new President, Steve BaTuch. Hav- 
ing a speaker scheduled for that 
night, we made the club business 
short, discussing mainly "A"-Day. 

The speaker for the evening was 
Ed Bond, who is a game protector 
for the Pennsylvania Game Com- 
mision. Mr. Bond told us how the 
first game commission came about, 
which was in Maine. He told us 
that the first game protectors were 
called "moose" because they pro- 
tected the moose from becoming 
extinct. 

Mr. Bond also told us that the 
game commission not only looks 
for hunters out of season, but they 
are also involved in predatory con- 
trol. He said that fox are the main 
predators. The Game Commission 
in Pennsylvania owns over a mil- 
lion acres of land. 

The laws concerning hunting in 
this state were also explained to us. 
One interesting law that many of 
you may be interested in is that 
law concerning non-resident hunt- 
ers, especially students. It seems 
that even though a student may live 
at a college in this State for 9 
months of the year, he cannot de- 
clare his residence in this State. So, 
all you alien hunters will have to 
get a nonresident license to hunt in 
the State of Pennsylvania. 

Dairy Society News 

Leslie K. Young 

The Dairy Society has been very 
active during the latter part of first 
semester and the first weeks of the 
second semester. At the club meet- 
ings guest speakers have spoken on 
topics of importance in tne dairy 
and animal husbandry fields. 

Mr. Eugene Soliday of Bucks- 
Mont Farm Bureau spoke at the 
Nov. 16th meeting on the Dairy 
Industry in California and Penn- 
sylvania. His sildes on California 
revealed many interesting points 
about an improving industry in a 
growing state. 

On Dec. 14th, Mr. Paulus, a 
fieldman for Atlantic Breeders Co- 
operative, spoke on Sire Evalua- 
tion. Again this proved to be inter- 
etsing with the students and facul- 
ty members present taking an ac- 
tive part. 

Dr. Croshaw, of Delaware Val- 
ley College, spoke to the club on 
Jan. 17th. He spoke on a People to 
People tour, which he took to Rus- 
sia in 1962. His sHdes showed the 
real state of Russian Agriculture. 

The major events on the clubs' 
calendar for the year are a trip and 
banquet. The trip is taken in the 
latter part of the second semester

A Carnival of Flowers 

John D. Martin 

The people responsible for the 
1967 Philadelphia Spring Flower 
Show outdid themselves this year 
to produce a floral spectacle. The 
theme of the show was "A Carnival 
of Flowers", and with the aid of 
beautiful flowers, lush draperies, 
rugs, unique lighting, skill, and 
hard work the theme was fully 
achieved. The D.V.C. exhibit show- 
ed the months of planning and 
weeks of work by the Junior Orn. 
Hort. students under the guidance 
of Prof. Frederick S. Blau, and Mr. 
Frank Grau. The title of the entry 
was "A Contemporary Garden", 
and featured both a redwood roof 
and a red and white stone patio. A 
fountain babbled gayly against an 
evergreen background and pink 
azaleas and begonias bloomed pro- 
fusely in the boarder surrounding 
the patio. The patio utilized mov- 
able sun screen and terrace space 
dividers planted with pink begon- 
ias. On the patio was blue and 
white garden furniture and a large 
white metal table with a bowl of 
fruit on it, and two manikins by 
the names of Kieth Mounty and 
Robert O'Brien sitting around. The 
crowds around the exhibit seemed 
to like what they saw and I think 
they saw what D.V.C, can do; quite 
a job! !

Letters to the Editor 



Richard S. HaMeman '67 
Garwood R. Hoagland '67 

As we all know, rules are made 
to be broken. However, most of the 
time the rules made are enforced 
with some sort of regularity. At 
this time there seem to be some 
rules that are not enforced, or if 
they are, appear to be very erratic 
in their enforcement. These rules 
are the ones of the student dining 
hall. 

The first of these is that of dress 
regulations. It seems as though 
there isn't any rule about the wear- 
ing of work clothes, especially blue 
jeans. This is particularly true of 
morning and noon meals. However, 
this seems to be true for only cer- 
tain people. While it might be pos- 
sible that occasionally a person 
could escape being seen, the 
stench of some of the violators could 
not be missed, even by a person 
having the worst head cold! 

Neither the head waiters nor the 
student government representatives 
can deny knowledge of this because 
thes^ individuals have been point- 
ed out to them time after time. They 



always respond with the same an- 
swer, "What do you expect me to do 
about it?" 

Another violation of the dining 
hall is that of causing a disturbance. 
One of the most disturbing things 
is that of cutting into the line for 
meals. This isn't the occasional per- 
son, who either due to a work 
schedule or other appointments 
finds himself with only ten minutes 
or so to eat before class; but rather 
it is groups of from two to six viola- 
tors that practice this day in and 
day out. 

This subject is also known to the 
student government and dining 
hall personnel. They would have 
to be blind and deaf to miss it! This 
problem has been discussed, to no 
avail, time after time at student 
government meetings. 

"Isn't it about time that these 
rules are either enforced or elimi- 
nated as useless articles?" 

The purpose of this article isn't 
to point out an occasional violator 
but rather those who are incon- 
siderate enough to violate them 
day after day.

LUUCH 




With each new year the college 
faces new and challenging prob- 
lems. Some of the problems are 
large— like Jthe new building, and 
some are small— like providing 
towels in the washrooms; but most 
if not all have been met. 

We might not agree that with 
what is being done, but we can 
certainly say that some progress is 
being made. All that faces us are 
not untangible problems— many 
times they are ones which the stu- 
dents themselves can control. 

Recently, students have com- 
plained to me that the vending ma- 
chine situation is terrible— they 
seem always to be on the blink. As 
you know these machines are under 
the direction of Student Govern- 
ment as a convenience to the stu- 
dents—out of student need. Now 
that you know who runs these ma- 
chines let's find out why they are 
on the blink; here are some rea- 
sons: 

1. March 9th Ulman Hall-104 
packs of cigarettes removed— ma- 
chine damaged. 

2. March 13th machine damaged. 

3. March 14th-Ulman Hall- 
cigarette machines emptied of 96 
packs, machine damaged— Total 
cost to Student Government— $66. 

4. Machine damaged— slug jam- 
med mechanism. 

5. Two days after ice cream ma- 
chine installed, $83 in damage and

ice cream stolen. 

6. Water turned oflF on cofFee 
machine in Ulman Hall. 

These instances prove certain 
points about these machines and 
the student body in general. 

a. The students like to pay for 
other peoples fun. 

b. This is a way to let the Stu- 
dent Government know that the 
students (or certain students) 
would like the machines removed. 

c. That one way tickets to des- 
tinations unknown should be a- 
warded to those responsible 

d. People in general haven't the 
guts to stand up against something 
that they feel is wrong. 

To whomever is causing such acts 
of vandalism I would like to leave 
one thought-it's cheaper for all 
concerned if you spend the coin 
for what you want. It's stupid and 
senseless to think that you can get 
away with these actions, especially 
on a campus as smali as ours. 

Remember, it's only the senseless 
actions of students that are easily 
remembered, and each incident 
will bring more and more restric- 
tions down on everyones head. The 
"Furrow" staff sincerely hopes the 
students will help to solve this 
problem so that we might solve our 
greatest problem— the perennial 
girl shortage.

Attention . . . 
Summer Job 

John D. Martin 
So you want a job this summer? 
You're not alone you know. Thou- 
sands of other students want to 
work this summer, too. If you are 
waiting for some self-addressed 
stamped envelopes to mail your- 
self to future employers, don't hold 
your breath. Just because you are 
an Aggie and consider yourself in- 
dispensable to the labor market is 
no reason to believe everyone 
else does. If you continue to look 
at job getting with those rose-color- 
ed glasses you seem to be wearing, 
you are in for a rude awakening. 
What is the reasoning behind wait- 
ing until the 4th of July to get a 
job? That job you wanted might 
not be there then. To tell you the 
truth, it's too late already for some 
jobs with large companies this sum- 
mer. It so happens that while you 
were thinking of Santa Claus, dur- 
ing your Christmas vacation, some 
of tne best summer job hunting 
time passed you by. Don't kid 
yourself, that's not too early at all; 
in fact, if a summer eovernment 
job is your meat you should have 
started in the fall. Are you one of 
those who say they can't find jobs? 
Can you read? A stupid question 
you say, but that library over there 
can give you some pretty good in- 
formation on summer employment. 
And, those posted notices can tell 
you what's available. Don't forget 
your Department Head. He's in the 
know concerning jobs in your field. 
Go out and meet people, and seek 
out those good jobs. Don't be 
afraid to consider those distant 
jobs. Remember those high paying 
jobs may not be the best bet as far 
as your future is concerned. Seek a 
summer job that could lead to a 
permanent one after graduation. A 
summer job can be an important 
key to your future. If you are con- 
tent to sit on your laurels, vou de- 
serve what you get. What's left! 



Band Aid 



Herb Levin and 
John Gerberich 

Up until now the student body 
and the faculty have been told 
what the Band has been doing, but 
they have not been told who par- 
ticipates in this organization. Since 
the students of D.V.C. comprise 
the Band, here is a resume of each 
musician. This will include his 
instrument, years of membership 
and year of graduation. 

The first section mentioned will 
be the percussion section. This sec- 
tion consists of the belk, cymbals, 
snare drum and bass drum. 
Pete Dilks, bass drum and cymbals, 

4 years, '67 
Brian Steiger, bells, 1 year, '69 
Fritz Blum, snare drum, 1 year, 70 

Although the percussion section 
is vital to the Band, the brass sec- 
tion is also an integral part of this 
organization. The brass section con- 
sists of trumpets, french horns, 
baritones, trombones and sousa- 
phones. 

Terry Unseld, trumpet, 4 years, '67 
Bob Mock, trumpet, 3 years, '68 
John Bame, trumpet, 1 year, 70 
Don Duca, trumpet, 1 year, 70 
Don Snively, trumpet, 1 year, 70 
Ed Stepler, trumpet, 1 year, 70 

Larry Kibler, french horn, 1 year, 
'70 

Tom Michalski, baritone, 2 years, 
'69 

Lynn Peterson, trombone, 1 year, 

'67 
Jim Sterner, trombone, 2 years, '69 
Jim Troutman, trombone, 2 years, 

'69 

Dave Evans, sousaphone, 1 year, 70 

Don Helwig, sousaphone, 1 year, 
70 

The w(X)dwind section will be 
the last section of the Band to be 
analyzed. This section is composed 
of bassoons, clarinets and sax- 
ophones.

Aggies Baseball Hopes 
High For 1967 Season 



Winter Sports 



Although the weather has been 
anything but baseball weather for 
the last two weeks, the baseball 
team has been hard at work in 
Neumann Gymnasium. With a 
break, the team hopes to be able 
to practice outside upon their re- 
turn from Easter Vacation. 

The team will most likely be cen- 
tered around the ten returning let- 
termen from last year's fine team. 
There is, however, a fine crop of 
young "rookies" that will be oat- 
tling for starting positions. 

In the infield will probably be 
John Nice, Bill Roth, and Joe Fran- 
diella. Battling for a position, also 
will be John Cunningham, Dave 
Spinella, Joe Carroll, and Mickey 
Hannen. With three returning let- 
termen and four other hustling 
players the infield should be one 
of the strengths for the Aggies this 
year. 

Hie outfield is loaded with an 
abundance of talent as there will 
be four returning lettermen. Trving 
to hold on to their positions will be 



Captain Bill Hartman, Mars Sei- 
ferth, Warren Hitz, and Bill Mitch- 
ell. These four good, consistent ball 
players along with some potential- 
ly good freshmen should give the 
Aggies depth in the outfield. 

Squatting behind the plate this 
year will be either Russ Albright, 
Gene Wallace or Ron Koenig. All 
three of these boys have looked real 
well in practice so far; therefore, 
the position is still open for grabs. 

The big question mark this sea- 
son for Del Val will be if the pitch- 
ers can stand up against the big 
hitters of the MAC. The only re- 
turning letterman is Bill Dun- 
scombe. Backing Bill up will be 
Ron Timko, Lance Erb, Cnris Bock- 
rath, or any one of the other six 
players who are out for this posi- 
tion. 

The first game gainst King's Col- 
lege has been postponed, due to 
bad weather, until May 16th. The 
remainder of the schedule shows 
the Aggies home for 9 games and 
on the road for the remaining 4 
games.

Game Was a 

Burt Robbins 
Spring weekend's basketball 

fjame between the Delaware Val- 
ey College faculty plus intramural 
champs and the Philadelphia Jes- 
ters was indeed a success. The 
game was well attended by stu- 
dents and their dates as well as 
faculty and administration. 

The Jesters provided no dull mo- 
ments as they continuously found 
ways and methods of providing 
entertainment; the referee and 
Dean Fulcoly soon found that there 
were ik) exception to the rule "any- 
thing goes." 

Playing for the faculty was Dean

that Mr. Linta was the best coach 
they've played against this year. 

A-DAY 

IS 

COMING 



Barry Galvif% 
Delaware Vauey College held its 
annual winter spOTts award assem- 
bly on March 8, 1967 and honored 
those athletes (iiat played on the 
basketball and wrestling teams. 

Coach William Graver, the 
wrestling coach, pesented letters 
to the Allowing toys: Pete Mar- 
tens, Bob Felton, Kermit Moyer, 
Steve Peters, Billy Hartman ^the 
team Captain), Everett Chamoer- 
lain, John Hawk, and Lloyd Cor- 
bett. The Most Valuable Wrestler 
Award went to Everett Chambar- 
lain, who posted a 9 and 1 individ- 
ual recorcl and contributed a total 
of 39 team iK)ints. The Junior 
Chamber of Commerce Loyalty 
Award went to George Corless, who 
has contributed leadership in ath- 
letics during his four years here at 
D.V.C. 

The wrestling team, under the 
expert coaching of Mr. Graver and 
assistant coach Mr. Watldns, com- 
piled a season record of 6 wins and 
4 losses. 

Mr. John C. Christensen, assist- 
ant basketball coach, presented 
Junior Varsity awards to the fol- 
lowing: James Douglas, Joe GriflFin, 
Joe Monfardini, Matt Reisen, Bob 
Rohrbaugh, Glenn Weddle, Mar- 
tin Wegman, Larry Mummert, 
Chuck Rocconi, and Bill Endriss. 

Mr. John Silan, varsity basketball 
coach then presented letters to the 



following boys: Dan Dou^erty, 
Sam lancale, Bill Eisel, Mars Sei- 
ferth, Paul Fitch, Ken Sdioenb^g, 
John Cunningham, and Ron Ko- 
walik, the team Captain. 

Coach Silan and Coach Chris- 
tensen did a tremendous job of 
coaching the team to a final record 
of 9 wins and 11 losses, which is 
the second best record in the past 
tai years. 

Bill Eisel, who scored 360 points 
in our 19 games for 18.9 per game 
average was presented with the 
High Scorer Award. Bill, who led 
the team in rebounds with 261 for 
a 13.5 rebounds per game average, 
also received the Most Valuable 
Player Award. The Most Improved 
Player Award was given to Mars 
Seiferth. Mars led the team in 
assists with 1(^ and had a game 
high of 31 against Washington Col- 
lege. 

Mr. Ned Linta presented the 
Easta-n Collegiate Athletic Confer- 
ence awards to Mars Seiferth and 
Bill Eisel. He also presented the 
Philadelphia Basketball Writer's 
Association award to Mars Seiferth. 

I feel that upon the completion 
of this our maiden year in the Mid- 
del Atlantic Conference, that we, 
the student body have every right 
to be extremely proud of our coach- 
es and the athletes that have repre- 
sented Delaware Valley College so 
well in our winter sports.

Students Visit 
Business Symposium 



On Wednesday, March 15, 1967 
a group of our students attended a 
Business Symposium at the Hotel , 
Bethlehem, Bethlehem, Penna. This 
Symposium was presented by the 
United States Chamber of Com- 
merce in conjunction with the 
Pennsylvania State Chamber of 
Commerce and the Bethlehem 
Chamber of Commerce. 

There were seventeen participa- 
ting colleges and universities from 
eastern Pennsylvania. The program 
was sponsorea by a group of twen- 
ty six business concerns such as 
United States Steel Corp. 

The morning program consisted 
of the folowing speakers: 

George L. Stearns 2nd, Vice Presi- 
dent, Chamber of Commerce of the 
U.S.A., President, L. L. Steams & 
Sons, Williamsport, Pennsylvania, 
who gave the welcoming address. 

C. H. Smith, Jr., President 
The Steel Improvement & Forge 
Company, Cleveland, Ohio, 
who spoke on The U.S.A. and 
Underdeveloped Countries'*. 
William Pumell Hall, Director 
Buisness and Community Develop- 
ment, The Rouse Company, 
Baikimore, Maryland, 
who spoke on "Unemployment and 
Technology". 

Dr. Stanley V. Malcuit, Chief 
Economist, Aluminum Company of 
America, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 
spoke on "Inflation". 

The afternoon session consisted 
of small group discussions and 
questions directed to the speakers 
listed above. 

Delaware Valley College students 
participating in the program were

as follows: David Spinella, William 
Mitchell, Robert McClelland, War- 
ren Hitz, Richard Funt, Stanley 
Sitarski, Ronald Young, Ernest 
Kirsch, Eric McMillan. 

The group was accompanied by 
Dean Fulcoly and Mr. Martin, 
Assistant Professor of Business Ad- 
ministration. 

It was the consensus of all who 
attended that it was a very profit- 
able and educational day, particu- 
larly for the Business Administra- 
tion Majors. 



Hort Society 
Officers Elected 

Ronald Attarian 

The Horticulture Society has just 
elected its new officers for the 1967- 
1968 school year. The new presi- 
dent is Richard Funt, a junior with 
a lot of ambition and a desire to 
make the chapter bigger and bet- 
ter. The vice-president is James 
Conroy, and Ronald Schaefer was 
elected as secretary. Dennis Kali- 
nowsky is the new treasurer, and 
Ronald Attarian is the publications 
chairman. In charge of intramurals 
is Edward Freeman, and our new 
A-Day Chairman is John Thomp- 
son. Wtih such an aggressive staff, 
the Hort Society should move up 
and up in the coming year. 

Our club is planning to present 
two speakers for March. Mr. Wal- 
ter Wood, a new and excellent ad- 
dition to our faculty will speak on 
the processing industry. Mr. Wood 
has worked for many years in this 
field, and is an authority on the 
subject. We are also planning to 
have a speaker who will discuss 
garden centers and home garden- 
ing techniques. 

On April 7, 1967, the Hort So- 
ciety is planning its annual field 
trip. It should be a very exciting 
and informative excursion. We 
have several places which we plan 
to visit. We're touring through the 
New York Botanical Gardens, the 
Boyce Thompson Institute, which 
is a research center in New York, 
and American Cyanamide in New 
Jersey, which manufactures many 
garden chemicals. 

Before I close, I would like to re- 
mind all freshmen from all majors 
that they are invited to attend our 
meetings. Many are informative, 
with interesting filmstrips, and all 
are a lot of fun. Our meetings are 
held every second and fourth Wed- 
nesday of each month in the newly 
refinished field crops lab at 8:15. 
I hope to see you tnere. 



Coast Guard 
Invites You!! 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - College 
seniors or graduates can fulfill their 
military obligation as officers in the 
U. S. Coast Guard. Qualified appli- 
cants are notified of selection for 
Officer Candidate School before 
they enlist. 

OCS classes convene in Septem- 
ber and February at the Coast 
Guard Reserve Training Center in 
historic Yorktown, Virginia. There 
the carefully selected college grad- 
uates receive 17 weeks of intensive, 
highly specialized training. Upon 
graduation they are commissioned 
as ensigns in the Coast Guard Re- 
serve and serve on active duty for 
three years. Those qualifiied may 
be offered flight training. 

Coast Guard officers ret^ive the 
same pay and benefits as officers 
of other Armed Forces. Included 
are 30 days of annual leave and 
free medical and dental care. 

Peacetime duties of the Coast 
Guard include law enforcement, 
search and rescue, oceanographic 
research, marine safety, and the 
maintence of aids to navigation. 

Information on the U.S. Coast 
Guard Officer Candidate School 
may be obtained from Comman- 
dant (PTP-2), U. S. Coast Guard 
Headquarters, Washington, D. C. 
20226 or the nearest Coast Guard 
Recruiter. 



Band Aid (cont) 

Keith Mountz, oboe, 3 years, '68 

Herb Levin, bassoon, 2 years, '69 

Martin Troutman, clarinet, 3 years,

John Irwin, clarinet, 3 years, '68 

John Gerberich, clarinet, 2 years,

William Cooke, clarinet, 1 year, 70 

Henry Frecon, alto saxophone, 2 
years, '69 

Walter Bobb, tenor saxophone, 3 
years, '68 

There is one position of the Band 
that stands by itself. This position 
requires the knowledge and leader- 
ship to coordinate an organization 
as the Band. Mr. John P. Dunphy 
has been the Director of the D.V.C. 
Band for three years. During this 
time he has exposed the Band to 
many facets of the musical world. 

The Band is a growing organiza- 
tion, but there are still many stu- 
dents on campus whose musical 
talents would add quality and 
quantity to this organization. Band 
rehearsals are held in Allman Hall 
on Mondays and Wednesdays at 
4:30 P.M. 

Join the MAN'S organization- 
join the BAND. 



Take A Walk 

While walking through the woods 
the other day, I noticed some un- 
usual vegetation on Del Val prop- 
erty. The woods to which I refer 
are located beside the section of 
the railroad tracks that passes 
through the orchards and fields. To 
my knowledge these plants, or 
weeds, or whichever you wish to 
call them, were extinct in this area. 
They usually thrive in large cities; 
however, there they were, growing 
right next to the D.V.C. compost 
heaps. The heaps, extenaing 
throughout the woods, are carefully 
made up of old homecoming floats, 
junked machinery, abandoned cars, 
and other assorted garbage. One 
unique plant is the Mattressia 

iunkatae, a flat-growing plant that 
as spring-like growths emanating 
from the bed. Another is Sinkettsia 
Bathtubium, a plant which is used 
by the natives as a source of water. 
Last, but not least, is the Auto Rex, 
an ugly twisted plant with metalic- 
like leaves. All of these plants tend 
to spread rapidly unless checked. 
They will crowd out other vegeta- 
tion, and take over the campus if 
we are not careful. Measures should 
be taken to isolate these pests to 
a certain area, and also, to limit 
the compost heaps to the same 
area. These plants are not pretty. 
They detract from the campus, and 
sort of ruin a nice walk through 
the woods.

Spring Weekend (cont.) ATA (c«>"U 



for the girls. The rooms were avail- 
able for both Friday and Saturday 
nights. Just as on Homecoming, 
more than seventy girls signed up 
for the rooms. 

On Saturday, March 11th in the 
afternoon we were invaded by the 
funniest group of clowns in basket- 
ball, 'The Philadelphia Jesters'*. It 
was really a funny site to see our 
faculty being overwhelmed by the 
clowns. 

On the same evening the "Spring 
Fever" Dance was held in the Neu- 
mann Gymnasium. The dance band 
we had, was just a little diflFerent 
than we have been used to hearing. 
The name of the group was called 
"The Other Guys". Most of the mu- 
sic played was of the slow variety. 

All in all it was a weekend to 
remember. We hope that this event 
will take place for many springs to 
come. 



the Spring Awards Assembly. 

On February 28th, the Delta Tau 
Alpha held tneir annual banquet 
at the Collegeville Inn. The ban- 
quet was attended by 39 students, 
Dr. Joshua Feldstein, Mr. Walter 
Woods, and Dr. B. Anton Hess, the 
speaker for the evening. Dr. Hess, 
the Superintendent of the Central 
Bucks school system, showed slides 
and spoke about his trip to Japan. 

The Delta Tau Alpha is also in 
the process of selecting a repre- 
sentative for the National Conven- 
tion. This year the convention will 
be held during April in Arizona. At 
the convention national society oflB- 
cers are elected. Usually the con- 
vention offers chapter representa- 
tives the chance to visit local Agri- 
cultural Colleges and other places 
of interest to the Agriculture stu- 
dent. 

The next meeting of the chapter 
will be in the third week of March. 
Members are encouraged to attend 
this important meeting. 



Science Society 
Plans N. Y. Trip 

Publications Representative, 
Don Gensemer 

Under the leadership of the new 
President, Kevin Keim, and Vice- 
president, Bill Dougherty, the 
Science Society planned a trip to 
New York for the second week of 
April, and a banquet to the Chez 
O Dette on April 27. The member- 
ship of the club is now 52 men, and 
all of them should greatly benefit 
from participation in the Science 
Society activities. 

The new Treasurer, Paul Kiry, 
Secretary, Bill Lockridge, Special 
Events chairman, Carl Sinner, and 
Intramural Representative, Don 
Stump, helped the other officers 
plan a good meeting, interesting 
and not too long. 

The Science Society Basketball 
team finished in second place with 
a 15-2 record, the bowling team 
has a good chance to finish in first 
place, and now is the time to sign 
up for wrestling.

The Student Story • . . 




The most appropriate place to begin our story is with the early part of the 1966-67 acaderr^ic 
year and the football season. The team encountered some reasonably difficult competition but 
had a very successful season. It was characterized by cooperation and teamwork which resulted 
in large gains in yardage, (1). The basketball team through unified efforts was also able to score 
a large number of victories, (2).

Baseball season is just upon us and already our men have the makings Our band, an important asset to the football team for spirit, traveled with 
of a very impressive record, (3). them to all of the games. They even went to Grove City in the snow, (4). 




Coach Linta, mighty stalwart supporter of 
the teams was always present with a word 
of encouragement, (5). 




Dr. Work, frequent visitor to the games was continually concerned with 
"his boys' spirit", (6). 




Another important asset to the college were our co-eds who took an active 
part in all aspects of college life. They are pictured here as cheerleader* 
along with the two male members of the team. Bud And Mike, (7). 




Even those who were visitors became entangled 
In school affairs to a certain extent, (8).

A major drive undertaken by 
the Aggies was to fulfill a 
quota of 175 pints of blood 
for our blood bank. The fac- 
ulty as well as the students 
gave; although, some of the 
faculty were in serious need 
of confidence, (9). 




Supervision and control were maintained by a well trained, efficient staff 
of Red Cross ladies commanded by a specially instructed doctor, (10). 




There were many other activities to occupy the time of tlje students. 
We saw numerous assemblies featuring such varied performers as the 
Carradines, a drama team, (11). 




Also, Mr. Kolish was present to give us a 
glimpse of hypnotism in action, (12). 




Frequent mixers were presented, 
(13) 



and to the pleasure of the student body, some girls attended, 

(14). 



Again Dr. Work was present - 
exemplifying his all-around interest 
in campus activities, (15).

We had a special day to collect 
funds for Gary Hunter, (16). We 
also held the traditional Founder's 
Day celebration, (17). One very 
profitable means of familiarizing 
others with our school was the Glee 
Club, (18). With many long hours 
of practice, (19), and serving as 
hosts for other singing groups, (20), 
they spread a message of friend- 
ship. 

A few extra - special events also 
came up this year. The snow this 
past winter left the school bogged 
down for days, and the Aggies to 
their own ingenuity. The fun-loving 
boys expressed their earnest desire 
to remove the snow in a peculiar 
manner, (21), by leaving a calling 
card behind Mr. Sauer's car, (22).

The first day of spring was also 
a notable occasion. We had four 
inches of fresh snow on top of a 
half foot of snow and ice, (23). 



The dauntless, never-say-die Aggies managed to celebrate the coming of 
summer in the traditional manner, even if they had to reclaim the beach 
at Lake Archer (would you believe Daytona Beach?), (24). 



Only one group of people accom- 
plished any positive results with 
us. They were our own Freshmen 
co-eds, who taught us to sing(?) 
the Alma AAater, (26). 




Freshmen customs, which are as much a part of Aggie life as the 
12 o'clock line at lunch, produced a crop of thoroughly oriented and 
organized first-year college students, (25). 




We have all experienced the atmosphere before some pretty stiff finals, 
but the pre-final exam atmosphere of the campus was similar to that of 
a mortuary, (29). 



Academically, the student body did very well this past year. Those that 
wished to excel put in extra time and effort, (27), and the professors were 
willing to aid those who needed help with frequent discussions and extra 
practical work, (28).

Nevertheless, just after the exams, 
the Aggies returned to their nor- 
mal innocent selves and promptly 
placed the administration building 
up for sale, (30). 

The holidays were celebrated 
with the usual vim and vigor char- 
acteristic of the Aggies. Dressed as 




certain vegetables and insects, they 
went calling or preying on some of 
the unsuspecting faculty homes, 
(31). Even some of the "Hip" profs 
felt like celebrating, (32). Christmas 
was signified by our open house 
Glee Club concert, and a fireside 
chat with Santa, who with startled 
resignation took down Steve Toth's 
request for a fat blond, (33). 

One major item which has af- 
fected everyone on campus is the 
tremendous amount of construction 
presently being completed. The 
Mandell Science Building provides 
much needed class space and 
excellently furnished laboratories, 
(34). Along with that, the two new 
dorms as yet unnamed supply the 
living quarters for the influx of 
students next year, (35). Finally, a 
new fully equipped modern cafe- 
teria is under construction to replace 
the antiquated breadline generous- 
ly built for the college over fifty 
years ago, (36).

One of the oldest items to be associated with the college is the Toonerville 
Trolley (alias, The Reading Railroad) which still manages to haul, drag, and 
push the non-driving students into "THE CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE", 
(alias, Philadelphia), (37). Just about the most significant and well known 
group of people on campus are the Milies. These superb, physically fit 
fighting men are here mainly to serve the student body to the fullest, 
(38), even though it seems that some of the "Wild Ones". (39), still manage 
to slip by untouched. . • " ' 



Finally the article more sacred to the Aggie than GIRLS, and more dear 
to him than his MOTHER is his "RACK", in which he spends approximately 
75% of his four year stay at this institution, (40). 

We wish to express our thanks to the participants in 
this story. It has been a wonderful experience for us.

Spring Sports 



hy WiUiam Dunscombe 

At present, the spring sports 
scene at Delaware Valley College 
has the Aggies' baseball team in a 
drive for the Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference Championship. 
. In their opening game of the 
season, the Aggies lost by the score 
of 12 to 5. The main reason for the 
Aggies defeat may be attributed 
to the fact that unseasonable 
weather prevented the team from 
practicing. The losing pitcher was 
Ron Timko who pitched a good 
game but lacked the sharpness 
needed to win. In spite of the poor 
fielding and weak pitching, the 
DVC hitters did well. Leading the 
hitters was Bill Roth who was 3 for 
4 including a double and a triple 
and Gene Wallace who was 2 for 4. 

The second game of the season 
found the Aggies in their first MAC 
game against Lycoming. An im- 
portant change was noted in the 
team. Captain Bill Hartman had 
taken over as Coach of the team. 
This move of placing Bill as Coach 
has been one of the reasons for the 
team's success. Bill has given the 
team leadership and discipline, 
which any winning team needs. 

The first game of the Lycoming 
doubleheader found Ron Timko 
limiting Lycoming to 4 hits and 5 
runs. Del Val managed to push 
across 6 runs on 10 hits. Mars 
Seiferth had a good day at the 
'plate as he was 2 for 5 including 
2 runs batted in. Other big hitters 
were John Nice with 2 for 4, and 
Warren Hitz with 2 for 5 including 
a towering triple which he boomed 
in the lOtn inning. 

The second game was all Del 
Val, as the big bats of DVC ex- 
ploded for 16 runs on 14 hits. The 
winning pitcher was Bill Duns- 
combe, who needed help from 
Chris Bockrath in the sixth. It was 
his first win of the season. Having 
outstanding days with their bats 
were Mars Seiferth and Warren 
Hitz. Mars was 3 for 4 including 3 
runs batted in and Warren was 4 



for 5 including a double and 3 runs 
batted in. 

Del Val lost a very poorly played 
game to Eastern Baptist 11 to 4. 
The Aggies suflFered from poor 
fielding, sloppy pitching, no hitting, 
and a poor attitude, and were easy 
game for the keyed-up Eagles of 
Baptist. The losing pitcher was 
Lance Erb of Del Val. The only 
bright spot of the game was the 
performances of Joe Franchella 
and Bill Roth. Ice played a good 
game in the field and was 2 for 3 
at the plate. Bill Roth, our out- 
standing shortstop, was 2 for 4 at 
bat, and had a triple. 

Seeking to prove that Eastern 
Baptist's win was just an "acci- 
dent", the Aggies "hit the cover off 
the ball" against Philadelphia Col- 
lege of Bible. When the dust had 
settled on the diamond, the score- 
board read DVC - 13, PCB-0. 
Chris Bockrath in his first start as 
an Aggie, registered a victory. 
Chris pitched a total of 5 innings 
of scoreless ball. Ron Timko and 
Jim Douglas finished up the game 
without allowing Bible to score a 
run. 

All members of the team con- 
tributed hits to the scoring attack. 
Some of the outstanding hitters 
were: Seiferth with 2 for 3, Roth 
with 3 for 5, and Bockrath with 2 
for 2. 

In their next game, DVC tangled 
with Juniata and again came out 
on the winning side, 6 to 3. Once 
again, Frosh Ron Timko was the 
winning pitcher. Ron in his eight 
innings gave up 5 hits and 3 runs. 
The whole team gave Ron good 
support, playing errorless ball. 

The big blast of the game for 
the Aggies came in the fifth inning 
as Junior Joe Franchella hit a tow- 
ering home run into deep left cen- 
ter field. In addition to his home 
run, Joe c^ollected two other hits. 

In a very important MAC dou- 
ble - header, Del Val "stole" two 
games from the Crusaders of Sus-

In the last two innings Susque-

the last inning things looked mighty 
black for Del Val, but the clutcn 
hitting of Sillivan, Mitchell, Sei-

Golf 



In their opening match against 
Kinfi's College, the DVC Golfers 
made an impressive showing 
against a sharp King's team. The 
final score was very close, but had 
King's on top 11 to 7. 

To show how close the match 
was, every one of the matches was 
decided on the 18th and final hole. 
Leading golfers Pat Day and Bob 
DeMarco both halved their match- 
es and needed only a break to win 
their individual matches and thus 
insure a team victory. Team Cap- 
tain Fred Cope after playing a 
good front nine, found the back 
nine tough going and lost points. 
The other members of the team, 
Wosnan, GoUey and GriflSn all 
played excellent golf, but only 
Golley was able to win his match.

This summer, Richard Funt and James 
Conroy were sent as delegates akmg with 
Dr. Feldstein to represent the club at the 
annual convention of die American So- 
ciety of Horticultrue Science. The con- 
vention was held at Texas A & M Uni- 
versity. They presented a non-technical 
paper at die meeting. The paper was 
entitled "Horticulture at Delaware Val- 
ley College." Those present were: Dr. 
Feldstein, Mr. Adelson, Dr. Walker ( Penn 
State), Dr. Childen (Rutgers), Dr. E. L. 
D«nison (Iowa State), Dr. T. L. Senn 
(Clemson), and many other outstanding 
horticulturists. Many fine remarks were 
made about the presentation and the 
schools activities and purposes. 

The Horticulture Society of D.V.C. has 
gained more prestige among larger col- 
leges and universities by this type of 
diplomacy. The gentlemen at tihe con- 
vention were surprised to learn that the 
D.V.C. Hort Club ranked fourth among 
33 colleges and universitks throughout 
the country. This means that after two 
years of membership in die American 
Society of Horticulture Science, D.V.C. 
ranks hi^er dian many larger institu- 
ticms, such as Perm State, Cornell, Rut- 
gers, Michigan State, University of Mary- 
lami, Purdue, University of California, 
ami so on. 

The club is happy and proud to have 
James Conroy as a national office in 
the American Society of Horticulture 
Science. He has been el^^ted as the 
national treasurer.

Judy Collins to 

Give Campus 

Concert 

Friday night, November 3rd, will be 
a night for DVC to remember. One of 
folk music's greatest singers will be in 
concert in the Neumann Gymnasium: 
Miss Judy Collins. 

Miss Collins is not a stranger to the 
Pennsylvania scene. She has appeared at 
several of the Philadelphia Folic Festivals 
and also at die Academy of Music in 
Philadelphia. 

This 5" 5", brown tressed alto started 
her singing career five years ago with an 
appearance at Cameige Hall as a guest 
of Theodore Bikel, and since then has 
sky-rocketed into fame. 

Some of the comments about Mi» 
Collins: 

"MiM Collins has a strong, beautiful 
voice which she controls perfecdy. Her 
accompanists are superb and Miss Collins' 
own lead guitar is a joy." 

The IntercoUegian 

"Judy Collins added dimensions of 
depth and breadth to the urban folk 
scene. . . " New York Times 

"Widi Miss Collins, the styling does 
not wear thin . . . her tones possess a 
magic versatility and range which can 
be compared to Ella Fitzgerald in the 
field of jazz." 

Philadelphia Evening BttUetin 

Miss Collins' concert at 8:30 P.M. on 
November 3rd, is one not to be missed 
and one that will be long remembered 
at Delaware Valley.

Students Push Test Dates for National 

Homecoming 



Teacher Examinations Announced 



Queen Plans 

Initial preparations are being 
made by several campus organiza- 
tions to make a Homecoming 
Queen a reality. 

The Administration, Student Gov- 
ernment, Inter-Club Council and 
Varsity Club are working closely 
together and plan to announce a 
definite outline of requirements. 

Initial plans include a candidate 
from each club to be submitted on 
or before October 31, 1967, to the 
Varsity Club "Queen Committee". 



PRINCETON, NEW JERSEY, Sep- 
tember 22. College seniors preparing to 
teach school may take the National 
Teacher Examinations on any of the 
three different test dates announced to- 
day by Educational Testing Service, a 
nonprofit, educational organization which 
prepares and administers this testing pro- 
gram. 

New dates for the testing of prospec- 
tive teachers are: February 3, April 6, 
and July 6, 1968. The tests will be given 
at nearly 500 locations throughout the 
United States. ETS said. 

Results of the National Teacher Exami- 
nations are used by many large school 
districts as one of several factors in the 
selection of i^w teachers and by several 
states (or certification or licensing of 
teachers. Some colleges also require aU 
seniors preparing to teach to take the 
examinations. 

Leaflets indicating school systems and 
state departments of education which use 



the examination results are distributed 
to colleges by ETS. 

On each full day of testing, prospec- 
tive teachers may take the Common 
Examinations, which measure the pro- 
fessional preparation and general cultural 
background of teachers, and one of 13 
Teaching Area Examinations which mea- 
sure mastery of the subject they expect 
to teach. 

PrMpective teachers should contact 
the school systems in which they seek 
employment, or their colleges, for spe- 
cific advice on which examinations to 
take and on which dates they should be 
taken. 

A Bulletin of Information containing 
a list of test centers, and information 
about the examinations, as weU as a 
Registration Form, may be obtained 
from coUese placement officers, school 
personnel departments, or direcdy from 
National Teacher Examinations, Box 911,

MIXER AT 
DEL-VAL 

The initid mixer at D. V. C. this school 
year will take place on Friday evening, 
October 13th, at 8 o'ck)ck in the Mandell 
Science Building Auditorium. Entertain- 
ment will be provided by a group known 
as The Triumphs. 

Walt Bobb's Social Committee has sent 
out posters to thirty area colleges which 
include Beaver, Gwyrmed-Mercy, Tren- 
ton State, aiMl Ursinus. As usual, admis- 
sion wiU be free to everyone and dress 
regulations will be in effect. 

Preceding the mixer at 7:30, a pep 
rally for the Swarthmore game will take 
place. It will be climaxed by a bonfire. 

Seniors See 

Good Year 

Ahead 

The senior class has returned to Dela- 
ware Valley College for its fourth and in 
most cases last time. This year is of 
particular importance for the graduate 
for he will most likely correlate his col- 
lege career with his senior year and it 
will have much influence on his con- 
templating graduate school. 

The senior class sets the standards for 
others to follow and this year the stan- 
dards should be high under the leader- 
ship of Student Government President 
Wayne Winner, Furrow Editor Bill Ed- 
munds, and Class President Bill EKms- 
combe.

FOOTBALL AND SCHOOL SPIRIT 
DVai MAC Northern Divisionll No. 1?! Just about the biggest 
news on campus conceras these three things. Unfortunately the FUR- 
ROW will be in the printing process when DVC takes on Wilkes. Need- 
less to say the Wilkes game will be a big factor in the season's outcome! 
And talkine about football, the banners around campus are effec- 
tively showing me campus fever, DVC has its backers among the student 
bodv. The FURROW staff wants to extend its congratulations to these 
students who are showing a campus unity that will bring DVC to its feet 
in the school spirit department. 

A BEAUTIFUL HOMECOMING?? 

Get ready to have your girl on campus for Homecoming Weekend. 
If tilings fall into place properly the chances are better than ever to see 
yours win a little fame. The Homecoming Committee \s pushing hard 
to have a Homecoming Queen, and shell have a Homecoming Court! ! A 
good way to "Keep D. V. C. Beautiful!" 

FOOD FOR THOUGHT 
It seems congratulations are due somewhere else on campus, the 
new Levin Dining Hall! The food? Better for two reasons, preparation 
and atmosphere. But there must be a faster way? ! ! Patience had better 
be a D. V. C. student's better virtue! For a while anyway! !

Yep! This looks like the best year in D. V. C. history. And guess who's 

part of it?

AS I SEE IT 



As I see it, this year our Football Aggies will have their first almost undefeated 
season. 

As I see it, thanks and a doff of the peruke for our new dining hall. It should serve 
food for many a year. It'll take that long to feed everyone. 

As I see it, tfie student store is up in products and variety but down in location. 
How about a change? 

As I see it, the book store leaves nothing to be desired except accessibility. How about 
some more signs for off campus students? That goes for the laundry room 
also. Are you listening, A. P. O.? 

As I see is, this year will bring few problems of major importance. One which needs 
a quicK remedy belongs to the Greek letter men who leave the printing 
press inky. 

As I see it, much thanks to the administration for a FURROW Office and Re- 
vamping the Dark Room. We're all for you, Bill Edmunds (FURROW 
editor). Best of luck this year. 

As I see it, a junior should not enter into the operations of customs; however we all 
must excel in something. See you when I return for Homecoming, 1984. 

Ai I see it, the Pep Rally held on Friday the 29th, was a great success Has anyone 
ever been introduced to a voice before? How aibout a flashlight next 
time? 

Af I see it, there was pitifully little school spirit at the U];»ala game. The cheer 
feaders worked so hard. Button Everybody! 

Ai I see it, we finally got a break in the coffee department. The new machines 
look great, at least to this Aggie with eleventh hour hunger pains. However, 
m«m of the Rocking Club fwmerly headed by B. D. snouid report losses 
instead of taking out the frustration of a week's work on a dumb machine. 
Take it out on Wayne Winner. By the way, Wayne, since you have been 
volunteered to compile a list of losses, I believe a k>w rate of damage is 
in the offing. For your information Rock- A-M ilk Machine For Lunch 
Bunch, that's Wayne Wirmer, Woric Hall, second floor proctor room, phone 
extension 200. 





From the Dean 
of Students 

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone back to 
College for the academic year 1967-68. I trust everyone had an enjoy- 
able summer and that you are prepared for another 
successful College year. I would also like to take this 
opportunity to wish the Furrow Staff a successful 
year. I am looking forward to using this column as 
a means of communication between my office and 
the students and of having published those items 
that are of particular interest to the students. 

I would also like to take this opportunity to urge 
all students to drive safely and defensively. Unfortu- 
nately we have already had several accidents involv- 
ing our students. 

I would also like to remind all students that they 
should have completed a ''Request For Undergrad- 
uate Student Deferment", Selective Service Form 
#104, and mailed it to their local draft boards. Failure 
to do so, may mean that you will not receive a student 
deferment These forms were available at Registration and are presently 
available in the Registrar's Office. Any student who turns eighteen (18) 
during the College year must also submit a form. 



DEL VAL AND YOU 

Joseph Rothschild, Aasodate Editor 

This is the first of many articles that will deal with YOU as a 
member of Del Val and the college itself. If you look around you will 
see many things that you can do not only for yourself, but also for the 
interest of others. I am not talking about extra-curricular activities in 
the physical way, but rather extra<urricular activities in the mental 
way. 

The G/eaner is the college's literary magazine in which can be found 
essays from the student body — YOU. The essays run the gauntlet from 
universal matters to personal experiences. Also, in past Gleaners there 
have been fiction stories and poetry. Since the Gleaner was first pub- 
lished there was always at least one Gleaner put out Last year was the 
first time that not even one was published. Why? Because there was no 
interest from YOU. The writers of tomorrow are here now, but if they 
don't get writing experience now there won't be anything worth while 
to read tomorrow. Let other people know what you think. Write today 
so that there will be something exceptional for tomorrow. All articles 
will be published. Think about it; maybe you have something on your 
mind that you would like to say. It's your magazine, and only YOU can 
give it something to say. The administration and faculty are also 
heartily invited to write too. It's your magazine also.

THE PURROW 



Fag« Tlir»« 



Your Student Court 

Bnx DuNscoMBE, Student Court Judgt 



Probably one of the most misunder- 
stood institutions of the Student Govern- 
ment is the Student Court. The Court 
is viewed by Ae students with mixed 
emotioiu; some laugh at it, others scorn 
it, and still others ridicule it. The reason 
for ^ese opinioru erf the Court, we feel, 
is due to a lack of knowledge of the 
basic principles the Court is run on. 
Therefore, I shall attempt to try and 
acquaint you with your Court. 

The function of the Student Court is 
to uphold the legislation outlined in the 
Penal Code of Etelaware Valley College. 
The Penal Code is set up as an outline 
of the activities over which Stwlent 
Govenunent has jurisdiction. All students 
as citizens of the D.V.C. student body 
should be familiar with their Penal Code. 
The Penal Code also includes just and 
due punishments for offenses under 
Student Government jurisdiction. The 
Code is set up to protect and serve the 
individual and not as an infringement 
in the individual liberties of the student. 

The Court is composed of a Judge, 
Rrosecutor, and Court Secretary, aU of 
w^om are elected from the Student 
Government from its members. The stu- 
dent body indirectly elects the Judge be- 
cause the Judge is sel«:ted from the 
Student Govenunent officers all of whom 
are elected by the students in dieir class 
elections. 

A seven man fiuy is appointed from 
the student body by the Goverrunent. 
The jury is usually composed of members 
horn all classes to insiue a just jury. 
Many complain ^t the jury is "fixed". 
We feel that this charge is false, and 
anyone who has served on jury duty 
I'm sure will agree. It must be remem- 
bered that a jiuor is only as good as he 
will allow himself to be. We would all 
like to believe that anyone selected as a 
juror will do the best and most honest 
job he is capable of. 

The verdict the jury arrives at is de- 
livered to the court by the jury foreman 
only after the jury has weired the 
evidence carefully. deUberated and fi- 
nally arrived at what tiiey feel is a just 




and unbiased decision. 

In regards to the often heard skate- 
ment, "The Student Court is a kansaroo 
court," we would like to offer the foUow- 
ing explanation. When someone is sum- 
moned to Court, the issuing officer has 
taken his responsibility of summoning 
the offender seriously. He has issued the 
summons not for a suspected offense, 
but for a committed offense. It should 
then be fairly obvious that if a party has 
been summoned, there is strong evidence 
of wrong doing. This does not mean that 
there can't be an inrKX^ent party sum- 
moned to Court. It just seems that the 
larse majority of summoned students are 
guilty of glaring offenses and must be 
punished. 

This year's court will be run more 
efficiently. Court sessions will be held 
at 9:00 P.M. on the second and the 
fourth Thursdays of the month. 

In conclusion, we would like to re- 
mind all students of the following stated 
articles of the D.V.C. Penal Code that 
will be enforced to the letter this year. 

1. All fines shall be collected by the 
Coiut Treasurer .. . and shall be due 
within 1 week after sentencing, there- 
after, the fine shall double weekly to the 
third week. 

2. Failure to appear in Court will be 
regarded as assumption dF suilt and 
sentence shall be passed in aMence of 
the accused and the fine doubled. 

3. Jurors who do not appear as re- 
quested and have not notified the Court 
Secretary or Judge, shall be fined 1 dol- 
lar. 

4. The following new fines are now 
in effect and will be levied on guilty 
partis: 

a. Failure to wear sport or suit jacket 

at an evening meal except on 
Sunday $3.00 fine. 

b. Failure to wear a collared shirt 
$3.00 fine. 

c. Wearing blue jeans in the dining 

hall — $3.00 fine. 

d. Failure to return dishes to desig- 

nated place in a neat orderly 
fashion — $1.00. 



Something New— 

A Classified 
Section 

In an attempt to further student rela- 
tions on campus, the Furrow will initiate 
a new service in its next issue. This new 
service will be a classified section in 
vdiich students can place want and for 
sale ads and list services that they have 
to offer. In order to cover printing costs, 
a small fee of ten cents per line will be 
charged. For additional information con- 
cerning this service watch the bulletin 
boards. 



THE GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT 
a report from the S. G. President 

The Student Government of the College is the govermng body of 
all student activities. The sole purpose of this organization is to serve 
as a link between the Students, the Administration, and the Faculty 

concerning College activities. The Student Govern- 
ment provides a democratic government in all phases 
of student life. 

The Student Government membership is com- 
prised of: two freshmen, three sophomores, four 
juniors, and five seniors. Each class president is 
automatically a member of the government 

Each member of the Government heads a com- 
mittee which is for the benefit of the students. Weekly 
movies, T.V. rooms, the News Bulletin, pool room, 
and mixers are just a few of the many things the 
government works on each year. 

This year the student government looks to an 
even bigger year. Several new social activities are 
being planned and it is hoped they will soon become 
a reality. With student interest and participation on 
the part of everyone these new ideas can become a 
big success. The vending committee chairman is now in the process of 
getting a new company on campus. This would not have been necessary 
if all students had taken advantage of this service rather than abusing 
it With the completion of the new dining hall, meals will be able to be 
served much faster eliminating the old problem. 

Homecoming the first college weekend this year will be November 
3, 4, and 5. Plans are now under way to make this weekend even bigger 
and better than years past Since Homecoming is so late this year, the 
building of the bonfire for Friday night will require the participation 
of all classes. As in years past the Homecoming parade will leave 
campus and proceed through Doylestown. Again this event will require 
the effort of the entire student body. 

The Student Government can and will do all within its means to 
promote and organize student activities, however it will only be as 
effective as the students make it. There must be a unity upon which to 
build, and this unity must be within the student body.

We take many things for granted in 
our hves. Things and s«vices are there, 
they function, and we never realize the 
people and the sacrifices that they make 
to keep the wheels turning. Here at the 
college, the infirmary is one of those 
things that one uses frequently but sel- 
dom thinks about. In this new column 
we hope to enlighten Ae student body 
about the infirmary, the people behind 
it, and the big job that they are doing. 

The job is Dig indeed, for last year 
the infirmary located on the first floor 
of Ulman Hall handled 4,100 calls. On 
the average 30 cases a day pass through 
its doors to see the sniling faces of 
nurses Potts and Comnell or that of Dr. 
Schumacher. The infirmary under the 
watchful eyes of Mr. Linta is one of the 
leaders among others of colleges our size. 
District 7 of the Pennsylvania D^art- 
ment of Health ranks it hi(^ on their 
lists. The college has an exc^ent blood 
bank program ^om which about 65 pints 
were dispensed to students and faculty 
last vear with the late Gary Hunter and 
anotner patient receiving an unlimited 
supply. For 7 years in a row we have 



topped our goal for blood donations and 
when December 11, 1967 rolb around, 
with its even bigger quota, everyone will 
have to do his part to top the goal again 
for 8 straight. Thanks to the ^nors and 
the people of the infirmary when the 
need arises the blood is there to meet 
that need. Some of the patients visiting 
the infirmary have illnesses of such a na- 
tuer that they are sent for hospital treat- 
ment. Up until July 13, over 232 students 
were sent and or treated at the hospital. 
But most of the cases treated by the in- 
firmarv are sore throats, colds, etc., with 
football injuries running high now. Our 
infirmary offers many special servicea 
Vitamines, allergy injections, poison ivv 
shots, and other immunizations are avait 
able at a nominal charge. All in all we 
have an infirmary that we can be proud 
of. Manned by a top notch team headed 
by Mr. Linta it gives us 24 hr. coverage. 
We could not be in better hands.

Its happened again. For the 71st con-

was graced by the presence of another 
freshman class. 

Directly after registration, many over- 
loaded vehicles under the direction of 
our calm, level-headed campus cops, 
jockeyed for key positions in which to un- 
load their cargo and one occupant. 





Mothers and fathers piled out to help

neglect your studies; yes dad, and shower

which girls you go out with. Remember 
what I told you; yes dad." Farewells 
said, the supporters of this noble institu- 
tion slowly departed, mother bawling 
and son homesick already. 

During the next three days, most of 
the freshman's time was occupied with 
administrative details. There were tours 
and interviews by the faculty, diagnostic 
tests and surveys. I am still wondering 
how they expect you to know if your 
great unde on your mother's side ever 
participated in a group protest or demon- 
stration. 




Bits of leisure time were highly prized 
and the students immediately took to the 
field and observed the beautiful scenery. 




Registration for upperclassmen came 
and tne bewildered frosh stood by gaping 
with awe at the fantastic number of 
friends and faculty that each student 
knew. 

School life, for the next few days, 
settled into a relaxed pattern of leisure 
time and activities. The administration 
made numerous efforts to acquaint the 
freshman with the many clubs and or- 
ganizations on campus. An assembly was 
presented to introduce the club presi 




dents to the students. The freshmen were 
adapting to college life with amazing 
rapidity. But, all progr«ts came to a hatt 
wnen Black Friday rolled around. 

It was sunny during the day and 
everyone seemed cheerful as they fil^ 
into the stands. The program commenced 
with introductions and comments by 
D^n Fulcoly and Mr. Ned Linta. Then 
everyone turned his attention to a young 
man who stepped to the poditmi. He 
proceeded to explain "Customs" to Mi 
audience too siuprised to do anything 
but continue listening. As the day wore 




on towards evening, those two words 
which have a special place carved per-

Del-Val Students 
Say Go Co-Ed' 



The first of a series of t>olb taken by 
The Furrow finds that a large majority 
of Aggies are in favor of Aggiettes. CK 
the 200 students interviewed. 138 (69f) 
were in favor of going completely co- 
educational; 46 (23%) said that the col- 
lege should remain as is; and 16 (8>l) 
couldn't, or didn't care to, arrive at a 
decision. 

The replies were, for the most part, 
very interesting. For every positive 
answer there was a negative one. From 
the consensus of answers, one could de- 
rive a hotly-argued debate: 

YES: Girk would improve the »x;ial 
life and morale on campus. 
D.V.C. would lose the stigma 
of a "Suitcase College". 
NO: The college would become 
more restricted. We would 
have more problems than we 
have now. 
YES: The guys would become more 
mature and much more well- 
rounded persons. They would 
dress better and start thinking 
about their language and man- 
ners. 

Active Year 
for Bus. Ad. 

With the start of the new school year, 
the Business Administration Club is anx- 
imisly awaiting what promises to be a 
most rewarding year. 

Last year our teams completely domi- 
nated the Intramural program, and we 
feel that with strong Fresnman support 
we can again repeat that feat. This year 
it is our goal to become the first club 
to ever win every individual Intramural 
championship. 

As for our activities; throughout the 
year we have many guest speakers to 
give discussions on some field of business. 
Also we, as a club, trv to sponsor activi- 
ties that we feel will be beneficial to 
all who attend. 

The Business Club of IDelaware Valley 
College is moving upward at a very rapid 
speed, and we, the members, want as 
many students as possible to move right 
along with us. 

This year's new officers are as follows: 
President — Stan Sitarski 
Vice President — John Duffy 
Treasurer — Gary Lehman 
Corr. Secretary— Paul Fitch 
Rec. Secretary— Gregg Thompson 
Intramurals — Peter Miller 
Activities — Whitney Maull 
Advisor— Mr. Martin 

Our meetings are held every other 
Wednesday in Bamess Hall, please look 
for notices announcing the meeting. All 
Freshmen are invited. 



NO: Having girls around would in- 
terfere with my studies. 
YES: There is a need for an agricul- 
tural school for women. They 
should be given an equal chance 
in the agricultural fields. 
NO: Women don't belong here. This 
is basically a men's school and 
it should remain that way. Ad- 
mitting girls will result in the 
end of Del Val as an agricul- 
tural school. 
YES: Tuition would be reduced. We 
might receive federal or state 
aid, and there would be in- 
come from social functions. 
NO: Too costly. New facilities would 

have to be built. 
One could go on and on and not be 
able to draw a positive conclusion. Some 
people suggested that possibly a sister 
school be set up in the area; others men- 
tioned the fact that girls could be ad- 
mitted on a quota-basis. 

The results of this poll are for the 
benefit of the readers ot this newspaper. 
They are in no way an effort to change 
school policy. 

D.T.A. Inducts 
New Members 

The Delaware Valley College Chapter 
of die Delta Tau Alpha Honor Society 
held its first meeting on Tuesday, Sep- 
tember 26. The purpose of this meeting 
was to induct all students who have 
achieved scholastic, leadership and char- 
acter requirements of this Agricultural 
Honor Society. Among those inducted 
were thirty Juniors, and nine Seniors. 

One of the purposes of E>elta Tau 
Alpha is "to render service and to co- 
operate with the student bodies . . ." The 
Society is hoping to achieve this objective 
by passing an amendment requiring mem- 
bership in the Big Brother Organization 
of all the Chapter members. This will be 
voted upon at the next meeting. 

By now most, if not all Freshmen have 
been given Big Brothers. If any Fresh- 
men have not been contacted by their 
Big Brothers, remember that most of 
these men hold one and in most in- 
stances several offices in the many clubs 
and organizations. This fact should make 
it easier for Freshmen to find them and 
introduce themselves. 

Tutoring is another service offered to 
the students. If anyone is interested in 
this service he should make it known to 
the Society. The student will then be 
notified by his tutor. 

Following the meeting, apple cider and 
doughnuts were served. 

All new inductees are reminded to 
pay their dues to Richard Funt, Dorm 1, 
Rm. 227, as confirmation of their in- 
duction.

Science 
Society 



The first meeting of the Delaware 
Valley College Science Society, for the 
college year *67-'68, was held on Wed- 
nesday, September 27, 1967, at 8:00 
P.M., in th Allman Hall Lecture Hall. 

The meeting was opened by the Presi- 
dent, Kevin L. Keim, *68, who welcomed 
the returning memben and the Freshmen. 
Following his address, he then introduced 
the Vice President, William M. Dough- 
erty, '68, who explained his duties as 
Chairman of the Entertainment Com- 
mittee and told of the movies and speak- 
ers that the Society would have for its 
meetings this semester. He further ex- 
plained his duties as "A-Day" Represen- 
tative and his office of Co-Chairman of 
the "A-Day" Committee. 

The remainder of the Executive Com- 
mittee was introduced: Paul Kiry, '68, 
Treasurer; William Lockridge, '68, Secre- 
tary; Donald Stump, '70, Intramural 
Representative. 

Following the introduction of the 
Executive Committee, the President dis- 
cussed the various national organiza- 
tions that the members of the Society 
were able to join; e.g., The American 
Institute of Biological Sciences and the 
American Chemical Society. 

Plans for the Homecoming float were 
discussed, as well as dues, field trip, and 
the yearly Society trip. 

The meeting was then adjourned. 

Agronomy Clab 
Meets 

On September 25, 1967, the first meet- 
ing of the Agronomy Club was called to 
order by President Steve Baluch. There 
were 45 students present as well as Dr. 
Prundeanu and Eh". Craul. There were 
quite a few freshmen there, so we all 
introduced ourselves. 

The main subject on the agenda was 
the two day trip to Cornell University 
on October 6 and 7. Those going wiU 
visit many of the Agronomy work areas 
of the college. 

The Agronomy Club would like to be- 
come more active, so, a hayride was 
brought up as a possibility. A committee 
consisting of Wayne Winner, Steve Ba- 
luch, Bill Varano, and several freshmen 
were appointed to look into the matter. 

Dr. Craul, who is a new member of 
the Agronomy staff, said that he would 
be very happy to help the club in any 
way that he can, and he would abo be 
very willing to help any student. We are 
all very glad that Dr. Craul is with us, 
and we nope that he will be here for 
many years. 

A CLASS 
WITH CLASS 

After a prosperous Freshman year, 224 
members of me class of 70 return to 
anticipate an even better year for the 
1967-68 college calendar under the lead- 
ership of the following: 
President — Gery Fisher 
Vice President — Robert DeMarco 
Secretary — Larry Gerber 
Treasurer — Gary Filko 
Student Government Representatives 
Donald Koontz 
George Umholtz 
Bob Winner 
Starting our second year at Delaware 
Valley College, the class of '70 looks to 
a bright future with the success of last 
year's class activities. Our biggest pro- 
ject was the A-Day Dance, which proved 
to be a tremendous success. 

This year's main concern will be the 
Spring Concert to be held on March 8, 
1968. We are hoping to have one of the 
following groups perform in the order 
of their popularity: Martha and the Van- 
dells, The Lettermen, or The Happenings. 
The Class of 70 hopes diat the Fresh- 
men will acquire the same spirit and 
unity that we obtained during our Fresh- 
man year at Delaware Valley College. 



Circle K Announces 
Year's Activities 

The Circle K Club has held two 
meetings so far this year. These meetings 
were devoted primarily to the welcoming 
of the incoming Freshmen and to a fast 
start on this year's activities. President 
James Sickora and faculty advisor, Mr. 
Walford are very pleased with the many 
new members. iTiey have remarked that 
this year's club, with the upperclassmen's 
experience and Freshmen's enthusiasm, is 
on its way to a most successful year. 

With these advantages the Club al- 
ready has several projects in the bag. 
Probably the first of these will be "A 
day on the farm" for the underprivileged 
children of Philadelphia on October 21. 
Supporting the idea of better inter-club 
relations, we have planned this project 
along with the Circle K Club of the 
University of Pennsylvania. A group of 
about fifty children will tour the campus 
and farms in hayride fashion. It will 
give these children a chance to see a 
few of life's wonders they would never 
see in the city. 

The next definite project in line will 
be a sports car rally to be held approxi- 
mately the March 9th weekend. We hope 
this will be one of the big events of the 
Spring Weekend this year. We expect to 
attract a large crowd not only from the 
College and community, but also from 
a few nearby colleges. 'Trophies will be 
awarded to the winners. 

One of the interests of our Club lies on 
better relations and service to the public. 
This year we have been asked and are 
glad to accept the task of helping the 
Bucks County Forums Committee with 
their new, interesting and important pro- 
ject. They are organized to conduct 
forums on topics designed to benefit the 
public of Bucks County, thU includes 
the College. 

The first forum will be l»ld on Octo- 
ber 19 at 8 P.M. in the Central Bucks 
High School auditorium. The topic is 
"Tire Safety" with special emphasis on 
the research done by the National Aero- 
nautics and Space Administration of 
Langley Field, Virginia. 

The program will include films and 
slides about hydroplaning of tires on 
wet roads. This should be of great inter- 
est and importance to any driver. 

Also along the community line, this 
year our club plans to send two repre- 
sentatives to the weekly dinner meetings 
of the Etoylestown Kiwanis Club. 
Through this we feel that we can become 
better acquainted with our community. 

These are only a few of the many 
projects and activities we are planning 
for the coming year. 

Glee Club Starts Strong 

This year's Glee Club has gotten un- 
der way in full voice. It has the makings 
of a fine group. Practices this year will 
be held on Sunday night, from 9 o'clock 
to 10:30 P.M., and on Wednesday night, 
from 7 o'clock to 8:30 P.M. in Mandell 
Hall under the direction of Mrs. H. Buck- 
man. This year the group plans several 
off campus concerts, including the Holy 
Family College and several other schools.

THE FURROW 



A Frosh's Point of 

View on Fresiiman 

Customs 

By Nick Spielbergra- 

Here comes DVC's moit recent acquisi- 
tion. We will call him Joe Happy Fresh- 
man. His attendance at college is obliga- 
tory. He is being forced not onlv by nis 
persuasive mother, but also by his loyal 
and patriotic draft board, who having 
found him physically fit, classified his 
frail body and more than weak mind as 
1-A. 

Having received Vietnam Techno- 
logical Institute's acceptance letter with 
an automatic rifle, he defiantly discarded 
their appeal and came to DVC. 

As he enters campus, a martial band 
greets him pompously while the crovwl 
waves green and gold flags with the 
inscription: "Welcome to Froah Boot 
Camp." 

Registration is done away with quick- 
ly. Barracks are assigned, and starch 
smelling sheets are distributed. Today, 
impressing us is of utmost importance, 
they serve us grade "A" rations. 

Happiness, enthusiasm and ignorance 
of the future surround us for the next 
three days. 

Finally, Friday arrives. We are to be 
lectured concerning our duties to the 
upperclassmen. Dean Fulcoly and Mr. 
Linta speak to us about our college and 
our involvement in it. Sergeant Gcry 
Fisher is called upon to clarify the rules 
of the game. Summarizing his speech, 
we can fearlessly say that when a sopho- 
more hits you on the left cheek, you had 
better turn your ri^t cheek so another 
sophomore can hit you on it. Needless 
to say, this is a nerve-wracking game 
and might give us the feeling that we are 
guinea pigs ... or aren't we? 

Over the week-end, the freshmen gang 
makes the scene in the town's best spots. 
Some go to Woolworth's, others to the 
local drug stores. The real action, how- 
ever, is encountered at the local laundro- 
mats, where many shapes and contours 
are seen. A deceived group returns to 
school narrating their most interesting 
activities in town and quoting, or almost 
quoting, a very famous military man by 
saying, "We shall not retiun". 

Monday, Monday, so bad to mel Ridic- 
ulous outfits are worn, and scenes like 
the following are common throughout 
campus. 

— (Calm Sophomore) BUTTON 
FROSH. . . I 

— ( Inconspicious frosh) .... 

— (Soph, growing tense) 
BUTTON FROSH 




— (Disappointed frosh) BEAT 
UPSALA ... sir! 

— (Not fully satisfied soph.) Hey 
Frosh, come herel 

— (Fitwh, hesitantly) Yes sir! 

— (Soi^omore) Gimmie a matchi 

— (Fr^., hands shaking and Ups 
trembling) Yes sir! 

— (Soph.) Where does Granny 

— (Frosh.) I dunno, sir! 

— (Impatient Soph.) Gimmie a 
wonc cardl 

— (Choleric Frosh.) Gmr . . •&??$ 
. . . just wait 'til customs are 
over, ni V?-\\*\ 

— (Sophisticated Frosh.) Having 
analyzed and studied the pres- 
ent situation carefully, I can 
assure you that these wise fools 
suffer from an inferiority com- 
plex. 

— (Normal Frosh.) Common guys 
don't get bitter. The sopho- 
mores had to go throu^ this 
last year. Take it easy and look 
unperturbed. Just think of what 
were goima do to next year's 
freshmen. Oh, some of these 
sophomores might like to go ifor 
a swim in Lake Archer one of 
these days. 

Just in case you didn't notice, the 
above article was supposed to be a 
sattire. 

As corny as it may seem, it is true, 
that Normal Frosh., the last character 
introduced in the epic above, is the main 
character and represents the vast majority 
of the freshmen s point of view on cus- 
toms. We complained and were angry at 
times, but above all and most important, 
we were proud. Yes, prmid of being part 
of this American tradition, and even 
prouder to be part of Delaware Valley 
College which has greeted die Class of 
1971 with such courtesy and kindness. 
The Class of 1971 is the beginning of 
a new era, where nothing is more precious 
to us than to hail your colors, green and 
gold with pride and honor.

does not make himself responsible

Club Plans 
67-68 Events 

The Contemporary Club could easily 
be related to a men's social club since 
our main objectives are to enridi ova 
background in the arts. 

In past years we have gone to the 
theatre, operas, the ballet, coffee houses, 
and museums. We have had chess twir- 
naments and guest speakers. 

If you are interested and we eam«tly 
hope so, come to Segal Hall Monday 
ni^ts at 7:00 P.M. 

At cwir 1st meeting, on Sept. 26, Rich 
Scott was chosen to be president, since 
Paul Butterbaugh, who was president, 
has been unable to return to school. John 
Nice was elected Vice President. 

The main topic of concern was the 
Homecoming Concert, starring Miss Judy 
Collins. The concert will be held in the 
Neumann Gymnasium on November 3rd 
at 8:30 P.M. Tickets will be $3.00 per 
person. 

Mondav, October 2, was our 2nd meet- 
ing of the semester. Barry Weissman 
was elected Secretary. Treasiu-er and 
adviscH^'s positions were unfillable. 

At this meeting ideas about trips to 
Philadelphia museums, evening sojourns 
to some of the tnore popular coffee 
houses, and theatre trips were discussed.

BACK ON THE 
HELD 

It's back on the field for the Aggies' 
Band. Although the Band has ah'eady 
participated in two football games and 
two pep-rallies, the remainder of the 
season will still require hard work and 
practice. With this training we will be 
able to challenge the opposing colleges 
musically. 

In order to pull the Band together for 
trainine, a few Band members reported 
to College early. During this time, the 
music for marching and concert bands 
has b^n inventoried and is currently 
being distributed to the band personnel. 
The Band Room has been changed from 
Dorm 1 to Allman Hall Lecture Hall for 
the band members convenience. 

The Band also acquired new band 
uniforms. Since the uniforms portray the 
College's colors, green and gold, the 
D.V.C. Band is proud to display them. 

With the acceptance of the new uni- 
forms, the Band is still missing one 
thing — members. Only with the help of 
the student's co-operation can the band 
function efficiently. We urge anyone 
who can or wants to leara to play an 
instrument to join. Practices are held 
every Wednesday and Friday at 4:30 
P.M. in Allman Hall Lecture Hall.

Dairymen Discuss 
Summer Jobs 

The Dairy Society held its initial meet- 
ing on October 2nd and the turnout was 
excellent. President Bruce Jenny was in 
charge of the proceedings which saw 
the upperclass members conduct a panel 
discussion concerning the various sum- 
mer jobs diey held. 

It was also noted that the judging 
team has been practicing in preparation 
for the All-American sale taking place 
at Colimibus, Ohio later this month. 

O. H. Announces 
Corsage Sale 

Ornamental Horticulture Club held its 
first meeting on Sept. 27, 1967. It was 
decided the club would again sell cor- 
sages for the Homecoming Dance, and 
football mums on Parents Day. These 
corsages are to be improved models, 
superior to the ones sold in the past. A 
corsage committee was appointed to take 
care of the necessary arrangements. 
Prices for the corsages will be deter- 
mined at a later date. 

A constitution committee was appoint- 
ed to review and update the clubs con- 
stitution, especially to give more con- 
sideration to active members in the club, 
and to prevent inactive members from 
taking advantage of the benefits of the 
club. 

Trip and banquet arrangements were 
discussed but no definite plans were 
made. 

In the future the meetings will be 
held the first and third Wednesday of 
the month at 7:15 P.M. in Segal Audi- 
torium. All are invited to attend.

The Colonels of Wilkes G)llege barely 
squeezed by the Aggies of Delaware 
Valley Colleje 14-13 before 6,000 fans 
on Ralston Field in Wilkes Barre, Pa., 
Oct. 7 

After a scoreless first quarter the Ag- 
gies continued a drive, including a 13- 
yard pass frcnn Ron Timko to Joe Fran- 
chella, for a TD on a one-yara plunge 
by Timko. The extra point attempt by 
Floyd Ritter was good. Upon facing a 
secoiul and 16 sit\iation the Coloneb 
summoned Joe Zakowski who connected 
a 26-yard aerial to Joe Slcvarla. Dave 
Kaschak booted the extra point. 

Again in the third quarter the Aggies 
took the lead 13-7 as Timko again got 
things rolling with completions to Den- 
nis Shank and Joe Franchella after which 
he drove in for a TD from the oiw yanl 
line. The extra point was missed. 

Tlie Colonels were unable to move 
the ball until late in the fourth quarter 
when Joe Wiendl ran back a punt for 
69 yards and Kaschak booted uie extra 
point.

Aggies 
Upset 
Upsala 

A revengeful Del Val 11 evened their 
season's »ecord to 1-1 by trouncing the 
Vikings of Upsala College 34-6. A sound 
defense and a steady onense contributed 
to their all out drive fw a clear victory 
before a crowd of 1800. 

The tough Aggie defense held the 
Vikings to a mius 41 yards rushing, giv- 
ing them a minus 30 vaitis total in two 
contests. The offense led by Jim Smith 
and Ron Timko gained a total cA 272 
yards to Upsala's 100. John Nice, Denny 
Shank and Jim Branch did the running 
for the Aggies. 

On their first p(»session of die ball 
neither team could make head way, but 
in the middle of the first quarter a pass 
from Smith to Nice gave the Aggies 
their first score of the game. Pat Day 
then intercepted a pass and returned it 
to the Viking 33 where Shank and Nice 
took over and Nice ran the TD from 
the 3 yard line. In less than a minute 
the Aggies scored again when Sitarski 
grabbed a Viking aerial and carried it 
43 yards for a TD. The Aggies left the 
fieM with a 21-0 lead. 

On the opening kickoff of the second 
hafl, Joe Franchella returned the ball 
93 yards for a fourth TD. This was a 
school record for a kickoff return, the 
previous record was 91 yards. The Aggies 
scored once more in the s^ond half on 
a pass intercepted by Cregg Scott. 

During the final quarter numerous 
substitutes saw action and did an im- 
pressive job of holding the Vikings from 
f[ains and making suostantial advances 
or themselves.

Delaware Valley's 34 to 6 thumping of Upsala, overshadowed 
Wilkes' fifteenth straight win over Moravian, 22 to 12 . . . Wilkes' last 
defeat was at the hands of Ui»ala two years ago. Hie last team before 

Upsala to topple Wilkes was D.V.C. . . . Swarthmore, 
D.V.C. opponent on October 14 and the winner of the

schedule next year, was crushed by Wittenberg 63

. . . Bill Cottrell, former DVC center, ia now seeing

team isn't as good as last year. Against the viking's 
of Upsala, the defensive giants of DVC held U{»ala 
to minus 41 yards on the ground. Biggest job was containing Richie 
Davis, number 42, who has been known to run the 100 yard dash in 
9.7 seconds . . . Thanks to the alert playing of Pat Day and Gregg 
Thompwn, the DVC pass defense looked considerably better than it 
did against Moravian . . .As has been proven by the surprising defeats 
of Notre Dame and Michigan State, this is the year of the upset I pick 
DVC to dump Swarthmore and end their winning streak . . . Former 
Coach at DVC, and now coach at Drexel, Robert Schweid was highly 
impressed with the new Aggies and was filled with nothing but praise 
for our performance against Upsala ... As our Aggies strive for the 
number 1 spot in the Northern Division, I feel that each of us should 
do our part in going to as many games as possible and letting our boys 
know that the Green and Gold are being represented in the stands. WE 
SHALL BE NUMBER 1 IN THE MAC ... The basketball team, 
showing great initiative, has been working out on their own and doing 
some distance running in order to get themselves in shape for their 
extremely tough 19 game schedule. This year's A^ies Basketball Team 
will be under the captainship of senior Ron Kowalik . . . Viewing the 
whole scope of athletics here at DVC, I predict that this will be the 
year that our college will make a name for itself as a powerhouse of 
the MAC in all sports. 





SENIORS-CConHnued) 

The yearbook with its Aree co-editors. 
Bill Dvuiscombe, Glen Jerrel and Walter 
Bobb has gotten under way. Much of the 
work is still on the planning board. Bud 
Ceiger and Steve Wood ai« doing a fine 
k}b as business managers. They may even 
have the yearixwk run in the black which 
would be a considerable boost to class 
treasury since the prom is going to cost 
more than exp«:t«i. Seniors do not relirii 
the idea of an Mlded expense at gradu- 
ation. 

Sports play an important role in col- 
lege life and Delaware Valley College is 
well represented by seniors in the fall 
sports pro-am including football, under 
the leadership of captain Rich Kelly and 
fellow seniors Denny Dobrowolski, Mike 
Trazzera, Joe Franchella and Floyd Rit- 
ter. The cross country team is being led 
by captain Wayne Oppenheimer and 
another senior member of the Del Val 
Harriers, Paul Kiry. 

The senior year has started out well 
but las it to be a complete success all 
must cooperate in making the senior 
year one to be remembered. 



DORMS-(Continued) 

Women are not permitted in the dorms 
at any time. The Freshmen as well as 
upperclassmen, should have name ta^ 
on their dbors. 

For more information on dormitory 
policies, read {Mges four ami five of the 
student handlxxHc. The reason that no 
upholstered furniture or rugs are allowed, 
is that they are a fire hazard. The fire 
regulations of the College do not permit 
the above mentioned fiuniture. Pole 
lamps are not p^mitted for the simple 
reason that in past years tile damage 
has resulted, ^ich cost the student 
money for repairs.

E>uring the convention, both delegates 
took an active part in the general busi- 
ness meetings for which a lot of national

discussed our national newsletter, 'The

more undergraduate research. They also 
discussed ways to strengthen our national

French, Mertz— 
Science Advisors 

The Science Society has two new facul- 
ty advisors. Dr. French was named the 
faculty advisor to the Society, and he will 
be assisted by Dr. Mertz. 

Dr. French has been with the college 
for several years and has been appointed, 
this school year, Head of the Biology De- 
partment. 

Dr. Mertz, a new faculty member, de- 
serves special recognition. Dr. Mertz was 
in the first class of biology majors to 
graduate from D.V.C. He men went on 
to earn his Ph.D. at the University of 
Illinois. 

The executive committee of the Sci- 
ence Society, speaking for all the mem- 
bers, woula like to welcome the new 
advisors and, at the same time, thank Mr. 
Adelson v^o has, in the past, devoted 
much time and effort to the Society as 
faculty advisor. 

The Happenings At 
Spring Weekend 

The Sophomore class met on October 
12th to vote on their choice of who would 
appear at the College for Spring Week- 
end. In an almost unanimous choice, it 
was decided that the popular singing 
group known as The Happenings would 
entertain in concert on March 8th, 1968.

Jimiors to Start Work 
On Prom and Yrarbook 

The first Junior Class meeting was held 
on October 12, 1967. On the agenda were 
the Senior prom and the Yearbook. 

President Warren Hitz said that plans 
must be made now, and that a place 
large enough for the class should be 
found. 

The Yearbook was also brought up by 
the President. A committee is being start- 
ed now, and those who are interested 
will be sent to the various meetings.

Peace Corps College 
Program Extended 



The Peace Corps and the State Uni- 
versity College at Brockport have an- 
nounced completion of arrangements to 
extend and expand the unique Peace 
Corps-College Degree training project 
launched in the summer of 1967. The 
highly favorable reaction to this summer's 
pioneer venture sparked the decision to 
enlarge the program for 1968. It is the 
first program to make Peace Corps train- 
ing and service an integral part of cur- 
ricula leading to Bachelor's and Master's 
degrees. 

Candidates will be selected from the 
rank of students in good standing at 
an accredited college who are complet- 
ing their sophomore or in their junior 
year by June, 1968. Those selected will 
be able to earn an A.B. or B.S. degree 
and be eligible for a Peace Corps as- 
signment in one academic vear flanked 
by two summers of fully suosidized and 
integrated academic courses and Peace 
Corps training. They will be expected to 
major in mathematics or the sciences; 
those who have completed their junior 
year prior to entrance into the program 
will nave the opportunity for a double- 
major. 

At the end of the second summer 
armed with the degree, a teaching license, 
in-depth cross cultural preparation and 
fluency in Spanish, the graduates as 
Peace Corps volunteers win be off on 
their Latin American assignment. As 



members of the staffs of teacher training 
institutions and-or consultants to secon- 
dary teachers of mathematics or science, 
they will be important participants in 
the educational development efforts of 
their host countries. During their two 
year sojourn they will have the opportu- 
nity to earn up to twelve semester hours 
graduate credit. 

Peace Corps and College officials point- 
ed out the several features which make 
this joint program unique including: aca- 
demic credit for Peace Corps training, 
two fully subsidized summer sessions to- 
talling thirty semester credit hours, in- 
depth Peace Corps training synchronized 
with the liberal arts and specialized pro- 
fessional preparation, individualized pro- 
gramming, opportunity for double majors 
and supervised overseas graduate wotV. 

"This integrated program is based on 
our two-fold conviction: ( 1 ) to combine 
the college and Peace Corps experiences 
is to make both more relevant and mean- 
ingful and the personal product more 
valuable (2) to provide much-needed 
skilled specialists— mathematics and sci- 
ence teachers— as Peace Corps volun- 
teers in Latin America is to make a sig- 
nificant contribution to all concerned," 
said President Albert Warren Brown, of 
the State University College at Brock- 
port, in announcing the extension of this 
unique partnership.

WE MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT 

The FURROW would like to thank the many readers who have made 
favorable comments to various members of the staff. General feeling in 
the FURROW oflBce is that we are on the right track to a good school 
newspaper!! Please feel free to write and express your likes or dislikes 
about your school newspaper. 

COMMUNICATE BABY ! I ! 

In an effort to communicate feelings of students to the student body 
the FURROW has introduced a poll. In this issue a second means of 
expanded communications will be presented. The FURROW thanks 
Wayne Winner, Steve Wood, Richard Smith, Steve Toth, and Tom 
Morgan for the time they took out of their busy schedules to initiate 
thp FURROR interview. In the future your school newspaper will ap- 
proach various members of the student body to discuss campus, national, 
and international topics of current interest. 

FROSH CUSTOMS ! ! SOME SOUR GRAPES 

Things seem to have gotten a little out of hand this year. During 
Freshmen Customs the class of 71 developed a lack of respect for the 
upperclassmen. Who is to blame?? For the most part it seems to have 
been the whole student body. 



It could be speculated that under the new system of Customs no one 
knew what his responsibilities were. The Juniors and Seniors left all the 
"breaking in" to the 2nd year men. Why?? Because the 3rd and 4th 
year men did not care?? Or were they afraid someone would mtize them 
for taking part?? 

Whatever the reason it is very apparent that the new system has 
some flaws, and the Student Government had better discard some of 
them before next September. Actually the system should be investigated 
immediately in order that the imperfections are still in everyone's mind. 

A ROOM AT THE TOP? 

Remember the old cowboy movies in which the court always con- 
vened in the town's saloon? It sort of leaves the same bad impression 
after one has experienced a Court session in Segal Hall. The Student 
Court deserves all the dignity that it demands from the students. 

There are several rooms available on campus which are well-deserving 
of the Student Court. One in particular is the room adjacent to the 
Student Government Room in Work Hall. Or what is wrong with the 
Student Government Room itself?? After all, the Court is a division of 
the Student Government. 

CAMPUS ATROCITIES 

Date: Sunday, October 15, 1967 
Subject: Dining Hall inadequacies 
Fact: Facilities— excellent 

Fact: Food— good with the consideration that it is institutional food. 
Fact: At 1:00 P.M. more than three quarters of the students who 
had remained on the campus for the weekend were quequed 
up outside the glass doors. 
Fact: Dinner was scheduled to start at 1:00 P.M. 
Fact: The previous Sunday dinner was served cafeteria style. 
Fact: At 1:25 P.M. the dining hall was opened, twenty-five minutes 

after the scheduled opening time. Style— family. 
Fact: Approximately five minutes after the dining hall had opened 
it was again closed to those students who had waited to come 
after the initial hne had subsided. 
Fact: These "late" students would not have been allowed to enter 
had it not been for a waiter with some common sense who 
opened the door before consulting the GENTLEMAN who 
appears to be in charge during the absence of Mr. H. 
Fact: This GENTLEMAN confronted these late, true gentlemen and 
told them that dinner was served at 1:00. 
Whether the GENTLEMAN took compassion on these fellows or not 
is not really known but they were allowed to enter the dining hall and 
partake of some food. 

The point is that since this is not the only example of similar episodes 
which occur in the new dining hall it is about time something were done 
to alleviate these senseless problems which occur almost daily. The 
dining hall is for the students convenience.

Letters to the Editor 



DISMAYED STUDENT 



Delaware Valley College 
October 12, 1967 

Dear Editor, 

During last year an article appeared 
in THE FURROW (March 1967) which 
implied, if it did not actually state, that 
the njen who play on our athletic teams 
are not dedicated and do not want to 
make the supreme sacrifice in order to 
win one for "good old Del Val!" 

On October 7, 1967, 36 dedicated 
adiletes, 36 men who gave up 3 weeks 
of their summer vacation, 36 men who 
"bust tfieir humps" every afternoon for 
two hours at a stretch, 36 men who are 
expected to give 200%, journeyed to 
Wilkes-Barre in order to participate in 
what might well have been the mc»t im- 
portant game any 36 men from this insti- 
tution may be asked to participate in for 
some time to come. 

It was a beautiful day for football. 
Transportation was provided, free of 
charge, to any students who wanted to go 



out and support his team. 

Apparently it was a beautiful day to 
sleep or watch television. Like every 
Saturday it was also a beautiful day to 
go home. Certainly I hear the students 
cry this place is dead, there is nothing to 
do. There was plenty to do on tfiis week- 
end of October 7, 1967. There was a 
movie Friday night and the opportunity 
on Saturday to let thousands of people 
know what Delaware Valley College is 
made of. On the whole it is made of 
18-24 year olds who are lazy, self satis- 
fied, and just don't give ad--- about 
anything except running home to momma. 

On the whole the students who were 
at the last game did nok make enough 
noise to wake up a dozing insomniac. 
To those who fall into the above men- 
tioi^ categories I can only say, if you 
are afraid or ashamed to let people know 
you are an AGGIE you should go home 
to mamma and stay there I

DVC STUDENTS 
COMMENDED 

Editor's note: The following letter was 
received by the College concerning the 
accomplishments of two members of the 
student body. Wayne Winner and James 
Kemmerer presented papers during the 
Student Symposium. Tne papers, entitled 
"Open Space, Present and Future Chal- 
lenge" and "Soil and Water Conservation 
in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania," 
were very well received. Mr. Minott Silli- 
man is a former President of the Soil Con- 
servation Society of America. He is pres- 
ently with the Research Division ot the 
Soil Conservation Service, Washington, 
DC. 

At this point it is probably also appro- 
priate to mention that James P. Sickora, 
a junior majoring in Agronomy and also 
a member of the Soil Conservation So- 
ciety, was awarded a $500 a year Gildea 
Scholarship in conservation. Only 15 
scholarships were awarded nationwide. 
The numoer of applications exceeded 
150. This is the second year in a row 
that a member of the Delaware Valley 
College Chapter received this recogni- 
tion. Last year's recipient was Walter 
Simmons who is presently doing graduate 



work in Soils at the University of Mary- 
land.

Dear Dr. Work: 

It was my pleasure to attend the 1967 
Soil Conservation of America Aimual 
Meeting in Des Moines, Iowa, this montli. 
I attended the Student Symposium on 
"Larul Management for Tomorrow's Agri- 
culture" and was very much impressed 
with the quality of papers and enthusiasm 
reflected by the representatives of your 
institution. They did a fine job. You can 
be proud of them. 

"rhe SCSA Student Chapter at your 
college has been one of the outstanding 
chapters in our organization. 

This only comes about because persons 
like you and the Chapter Advisor, Pro- 
fessor Prundeanu, give it your personal 
attention. This is concrete evidence that 
you believe in an organization dedicated 
to advancing the science and art of good 
land use. 

May I say thanks to you and your 
college for making it possible for your 
students to participate in this type of 
meeting. 

Sincerely yours,

THE GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT 
a report from the S. G. President 

I would like to first correct Mr. Egbert's "As I See It" in the last issue 
of the Furrow. The new vending machines are now in the process of 
liing installed. These machines are being put on campus under the 

direction of the vending committee in Student Gov- 
ernment, which is headed by Gery Fisher. 

Anyone losing money or finding faulty machines 
should turn their name in to Gery in Elson 28, not the 
proctor's room as previously stated in the Furrow. 

Homecoming is getting closer and the concert and 
dance tickets are now on sale. The Student Govern- 
ment in cooperation with the administration is again 
making a package deal available. There will be 200 
of these package deals including two concert tickets, 
one dance ticket, and one ticket to the annual Home- 
comii^ foc^ball game. These package deals will be 
on ssAe for $7^, this is $2.50 Mow the origina] cost. 
Anodier addition to the Homecoming weelcend this 
year will be a buflFet supper for students and their 
dates. This will be the first attempt at serving a meal 
to students and their dates. The exact details are still 
in the planning. The Student Government feels that this addition will be 
a great aid to students and be better than a discount at surrounding 
restaurants. I would hope that the students would support the entire 
Homecoming weekend. This weekend can only be as good as everyone 
makes it. A lot of planning and work goes into this weekend, but these 
plans can only prove successful if they receive the support of the entire 
student body. 

Because of the late Homecoming this year. Freshmen customs have 
been changed from the past tradition. This year Freshmen customs were 
terminated Friday morning, October 13th. Much confusion resulted 
because of the absence of the traditional bonfire. However the bonfire 
1ms not been eliminated. Freshmen Customs will start again on Friday 
November 3rd and will terminate with the traditional Homecoming 
Bonfire and parade. The parade will start at 5:45 P.M. and end back at 
DVC with the Bonfire and pep rally. I would like to urge all students to 
participate in this parade. Any banners or decorated cars would cer- 
tainly add to the parade. This is an opportunity for us to let the towns- 
people know what we can do. 

I would like to again extend an invitation to all faculty and students 
to attend the Student Government meetings Tuesday nights in the 
Student Government room in James Work Hall. 



DEL VAL AND YOU 

Joseph Rothschild, Aaaodate Editor 

Homecoming for this year is already in the air. The clubs are begin- 
ning to organize their committees for the building of the Homecoming 
floats. In every club it is always the same few who work on the floats. 
YOU are members of clubs, and it is up to YOU to participate in the 
clubs' activities. The making of a Homecoming float is very important 
to each club because there is a money prize involved. But that is not the 
only reason. Tradition has made the Homecoming Float Contest an an- 
nual event here at Del Val As students of Del Val, YOU are expected 
to participate in the making of the float for your club. Every student in 
this college should be helping in the making of his club's float. Let's 
get out and work! 

Also, on Homecoming Del Val has had a parade through Doylestown 
since 1965. This year is no different. YOU, as a member of this college, 
should be out there Friday night on November 3. The upperclassmen 
have an obligation to be out there not only because they belong to the 
college, but to show the Freshmen that Del Val has spirit. The spirit at 
Del Val has been on the increase, so let's show the frosh what real college 
spirit it! 

Speaking of college spirit and participation, the Gleaner has a great 
incentive for YOU. 'The staff really wants articles, so they have initiated 
a contest for the best article. A prize of an undetermined amount of 
money (most likely five dollars) will be awarded to the winner. A set 
of rules will be posted, and they will also appear in the next installment 
of the Ftirroti;. So here is your chance to make some extra spending 
money. Take an hour out and see if you can win. It really is not too 
hard; you just have to write! 



From the Dean 
of Students 

The Furrow staff is to be commended for the outstanding first issue 
of the Furrow. For the first time in a number of years I feel that it is 

a real newspaper, which is what it should be and 
which I hope it will continue to be. However, as 
with most other activities on campus, it requires the 
participation and cooperation of many people. 

Participation is an important issue at the moment 
on our campus and one that only you can solve. As 
Director of Student Activities I sometimes get com- 
plaints from students stating that there are not enough 
activities on campus or that they are not interested in 
those activities that are available. I realize that it is 
impossible to please everyone at all times, on the other 
hand, we must have support of those activities that 
are available before we can think of adding additional 
ones. You may participate in campus activities in many 
ways, by active membership in campus organizations, 
by your attendance at activities sponsored by student 
organizations and the administration, and by your 
enthusiastic support of these activities. 

The only way to accomplish the above is to DO IT YOURSELF — 
YOU BE THE FIRST. 





AS I SEE IT 



As I See it, the family style meals should be a ^eat social event. 
There should be an informal gathering, a succulent tasty, leisurely meal 
and an early evening constitutional around this great campus of ours. 
Instead, we act like a bunch of pigs at dinner. I take that back. Pigs 
usually wait until the pan is on the floor before eating. Possibly if we, 
as mature college students, would apply some rules of etiquette, the 
evening meal would be a pleasure to attend. I'll try one again in a few 
weeks. 

As I See It, students should observe the same traffic rules on campus 
as they would if they were driving in a small city. I am not in the habit 
of being used to remove the dirt from the side of a moving auto. 

As I See it, the mixer was a social flop. There were no many people 
there that even the laws of Brownian Motion would have failed had 
they been applied. How about a nominal charge for males to limit the 
outside crowds? 

As I See It, the emergency shower in the Mandell Hall men's room 
is for use when acid drenched not as a plaything for a mixer participant. 
Help in preventing another occurance would be greatly appreciated. 
Also, a draw string to shut it off without getting wet in the process. 

As I See It, the spirit of competition needs some fostering. How about 
a student operated snack counter to be run in conjunction with the 
student store, Wayne? 

As I See It, the assembly on Wednesday the 11th was great but the 
attendance was poor. How about attending sometime? You've already 
paid for it. 

As I See It, the student court should have a nice wood panelled room 
to match the mahogany gavel they use. How about the Student Govern- 
ment meeting room? Segal Hall room 5 exhibits poor taste. 

As I See It, the library should update their collection of fictional 
leisure reading material. There are still a few nuts on the loose who 
enjoy reading for pleasure as well as for reports. 

As I See It, the Wilkes game was a great success. Two bus loads of 
supporters went along. They should have been served something to eat 
upon their return since they did not stop on the way. Is it too much to 
ask in return for a group of loyal Aggies attendance at the games? Mr. 
Linta, are you listening? We could use one of your miracles. 

As I See It, there are pitifully few people with the intestinal fortitude 
to air their views on some particular topic publicly. Sure it's fine to gripe 
to a friend about school policy but he will get fed up with your com- 
plaints. Why not write for the Furrow? I do. It's THE most powerful 
organization on campus. The student can voice his feelings with no one 
to direct his thoughts. Try the paper sometime. You just might like the 
feehng. This appfies to Faculty also. 

Finally, As I See It, a hearty get well is in the offering for Robert 
Goodman. He left last December with an illness, started over this year 
and already has lost almost a weeks work. Jeff, will you please convey 
my best wishes for a speedy recovery to him.

Vietnam Dilemma 



Whith Road to Take? 



by Nick SpieWerger 

If North Viet Nam had not violated 
article 10 of the Geneva peace agree- 
ment, which calls for a total cessation of 
hostilities, there would not be a war in 
Viet Nam today. This is an inevitable 
fact that all those who oppose the United 
States' involvement in Viet Nam should 
consider before opposing our presence in 
Southeast Asia. The North Vietnamese, 
led by Ho Chi Minh, expelled the French 
anny from their territory after the Dien- 
benpu blood bath. The French spent 
nearly $5 billion in the war against the 
C<Mnmunists, $2 billion of which came 
from United States' aid. Late in that 
same year, 1954, the Geneva agreement 
on the Cessation of Hostilities in Viet 
Nam ordered the halting of all military 
activities in the country. Having done 
this, the conference proceeded to divide 
up Viet Nam into two regions. North 
and South Viet Nam. This division came 
about at the 17th parallel. 

No sooner was the Geneva agreement 
signed, than the communists started their 
guerrilla warfare against South Viet Nam. 
This relatively small guerrilla warfare, 
took on an revolutionary process, and it 
soon became an all out war between na- 
tions. Ho Chi Minh obtained military 
and economic aid from the nations of 
the communist bloc to overthrow the 
government of the South. 

On September 8, 1954, the United 
Stetes signed the Southeast Asia Collec- 
tive Defense Treaty (SEATO), which 
provides for economic and military as- 
sistance, the latter in case of direct or 
indirect attack, provided that the govern- 
ment involved would consent to this aid. 
To emphasize even more our commit- 
ment in South Viet Nam, three presidents, 
Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson pro- 
mised their assistance to Viet Nam in 
case of communist aggression. 

There are several other reasons for our 
presence in Viet Nam besides the ones 
mentioned above. 

1. A friendly nation has asked for our 
assistance to help fight communism. 

2. We must contain communist ag- 
gression, not only to save Viet Nam, but 
to protect ourselves. 

3. The outcome of this war could pro- 
foundly affect our future world. 

4. It is one of the most important 
geographical areas in the world. 

5. We must let all people choose their 
future without any exterior force to 
suppress their rights. 

Tnese five reasons plus our bilateral 
and multilateral treaties state an un- 



avoidable promise, that of defending 
South Viet Nam at any reasonable cost. 
Before any further discussion, we must 
state the objectives of the United States 
in Viet Nam. 

1. To prevent the extension and ex- 
pansion of c(Hnmunist aggression against 
weaker nations. 

2. To restore the conditions contem- 
plated in the Geneva agreement. 

3. To give the Vietnamese an oppor- 
tunity to choose their own government. 

4. To conquer hunger, illiteracy and 
disease. 

5. To build a region of security, order 
and progress. 

Since our commitment has already been 
accepted from the standpoint of its le- 
gality and morality, it can be assumed 
that the United States cannot back out 
unless the goals we seek become a real- 
ity. This would imply that a present 
pull out of Viet Nam is impossible. 

Since the term £)e-escalation is very 
closely related to pulling-out, we must 
accept, at least partly, that the de-escala- 
tion, for all purposes, is impracticable. 

Those who preach the policy that a 
pause in the bombings of North Viet 
Nam is necessary to start peace negotia- 
tions should remember that the U. S. has 
done this before without any positive 
results; the communists took advantage 
of this cessation of fire to build up their 
forces with the immediate result in loss 
of American lives. The risks involved in 
an escalation of the war are also great. 
ScMne of the critics' main contentions 
must be carefully analyzed. 

1. Could cause a direct confrontation 
with Red China. 

2. Would mean an increase in Ameri- 
can troops in Asia, and therefore loss of 
more American lives. 

3. Increase in the monetary cost of 
the war. 

First of all, Red China does not have 



Since 1961 the U. S. has had 100,000 
casualties in Viet Nam while the Viet 
Cong ha\'e suffered ten times as many 
losses. So far this year, 6,721 Americans 
have lost their lives in Viet Nam, and 
there have been 45,705 wounded. 

The cost of the war is running to $24 
billions per year, but there are persistant 
rumors that the President will request 
$4 billion more before the year is over. 

There are 525,000 troops in Viet Nam, 
but this number could be increased to 
750,000 if the President decides to call 
up the reserve. 

With presidential elections coming up 
in 1968, pressure has been increased on 
the White House and many critics sug- 
gest that the President will nave to make 
a drastic decision on the Viet Nam war 
if he is to be re-elected in 1968. 

On the other side, he must curtail his 
expenditure at home by neglecting his 
Great Society or be faced with a tax 
hike. 

It is not hard to see the reason for the 
President's indecision. But it is also hard 
to believe that the President will maintain 
his present stance on the war for any 
length of time. 

Hard decisions are ahead. If Lyndon 
Johnson decides on the escalation of the 



Draft Law 
Changes 



When college students registered this 
year they were given a selective service 
form that they nad never used before. 
This is a new form. It is form No. 104. 
It is the first step in getting a deferment. 
The No. 104 form is mandatory. For 
students who are going to turn 18, after 
they have registered, must also fill out 
form No. 104. 

The college mails a No. 109 form 
which verifies attendance and indicates 
satisfactory progress and date of gradu- 
ation, all prior to Oct. 31. This will ako 
include summer school. 

The law has changed from giving a 
deferment on the basis of class standing 
to how much work must be completed 
in an academic year. Students must com- 
plete 25% of their work in the academic 
year from Sept. to Sept. Another rule 
that was changed was the taking of the 
Selective Service Test. 

Illness is an exception, only when 
verified by the student's doctor and that 
he send his verification to his local 
board. He has until the age of 24 to 
complete his requirements. Instead of 
a 2S classification a ISC is given. Eve- 
ning school students have 5 years to corn- 



war, which he is most likely to do, the P'ete a degree. Married shidents will be 
- ■ ■ reclassed as 3A after July 1, 1968. 

To appeal a classification, a student 
had 10 days to do so. A student now 
has 30 days in which to do so. Transfer 
students are only given 4 years of col- 
lege. 



U. S. public must unite in sympathy for 
his decision, and show the world that it 
is not a nation of sheep but a defender 
of world justice and democracy.

THE FURROW POLL- 



Studenfs Speak on Vietnam 

Considering that it is commonplace U. S. policy, 43% said it was a tair poli- 
the ability to deliver any atomic missiles nowadays to pick up a newspaper or cy, and an equal percentage responded 
yet. They are obviously as reluctant to magazine and read about college stii- 



face the United States' power as we are 
of having a confrontation with them. Up 
to a certain extent it is true that an in- 
crease of troops in Viet Nam would m^in 
an increase in casualties, but it also 
means that our objectives in Viet Nam 
could be accomplished faster, and there 
would be a more efficient utilization of 
our power in that area. 

Concerning the monetary cost of the 
war, we must recall President Johnson's 
recent statement, "The war is hardly be- 
yond the means of the world's wealthiest 
nation." 



dents either burning their draft cards or 
picketing somewhere to end the war in 
Southeast Asia, the results of this week's 
poll done by the Furrow are somewhat 
surprising. Three out of four D. V. C. 
students interviewed believed that the 
United States belongs in Vietnam, a 
large amount of support for the conflict 
being fought there. 

When asked how they felt towards 



with a poor verdict. The remaining 12% 
(2 people were undecided) thought that 
the government had shown a good poli- 
cy. 

The question of escalation of troops 
was also brought up and it was an em- 
phatic "yes" — 70%— towards a buildup 
of military forces in Vietnam. The re- 
mainder of answers indicated an equal 
division of students (15%) favoring es- 
calation or maintaining the status quo.

The Furrow Interview— 

The Students Speak Out on Vietnam 



CiMfts Interviewed: 

Wayne Winner, President of The 

Student Government. 
Steve Wood, Vice-President of The 

Student Government. 
Dick Smith, Secretary of The Student 
Govenunent. 
Thomas Morgan, Class of 1969, 

Food Industry Major. 
Stephen Toth, Class of 1909, Horti- 
culture Major. 
FURROW. Do you believe that the U.S. 

has a commitment in Vietnam? 
WINNER: DeBnitely, that is why I 
wouldn't even consider pulling out of 
Vietnam now. If we did pull out, it 
would be die greatest communist vic- 
tory ever adiieved. 




W. WINNER 

WCX)D: Yes. 

SMITH: I don't believe that our commit- 
ment is as great as we hke to think. 

MORGAN: Yes, definitely. However, 
diere are many nations who think that 
we shouldn't be there. 

TOTH: Yes. I would be disgusted if we 
were to pull out. 

FURROW: Do you approve of LBJ's 
policy in Vietnam? 

WINNER: Yes, but only partially. We 
should stay there but not under the 
present policy. 

WOOD: Basically I do, but he is going 
about it in the wrong way. Air raids 
should have been emphasized more in 
the beginning instead of the ground 
war in South Vietnam, therefore re- 
stilting in less casualties. 

SMITH: No. 

MORGAN: No. 

TOTH: Yes. 

FURROW: Do you believe that the pres- 
ent bombing of Vietnam is beneficial? 

WINNER: It is beneficial to a certain 
extent: that is why we should not halt 
it. 

WOOD: Yes. 

SMITH: I don't believe that the present 
bombing is beneficial. 

MORGAN: I disapprove of the present 
bombing tactics. 

TOTH: The present bombing is bene- 
ficial, but I think that the air war 
should be extended. 




FURROW: Would you approve bombing 
Hanoi and Haiphong? 

WINNER: No. Tnese are heavily popu- 
lated areas, and unless civilian lives 
could be spared I disapprove of these 
targets. Besides, there are other ways 
of winning the war without using these 
cities as bombing sites. I would, 
though, approve of bombing the dock 
areas of Haiphong because it is the 
main line of communist supplies. 

WOOD: Yes, but only the dock areas. 
Civilian populated areas should not be 
bombed .although I am not sure that 
this can be avoided. 

SMITH: I suggest tihat a pause in the 
bombing is necessary to give the North 
Vietnamese a chance to go to a peace 
conference. If they do not take advan- 
tage of this opportunity, I suggest that 
we bomb the presently restricted areas. 

MORGAN: We should try to avoid pop- 
ulated areas and hit only the ammuni- 
tion dumps aiKl other war material 
centers. 

TOTH: I suggest we bomb Hanoi and 
Haiphong and have an all-out assault 
on North Vietnam. I don't think this 
would imply a direct confrontation 
with Red China. 

FURROW: Do you approve of the use 
of atomic weapons in Vietnam? 

WINNER: Not at the present time. 

WOOD: No. 




S. TOTHE 



S. WOOD 

SMITH: We have large enough weapons 
besides the atomic bomb, and I tnink 
our goals will be accomplished without 
them. 

MORGAN: No, because the Russians will 
retabate. 

TROTH: Before we even attempt to use 
these, we should try to win the war 
with our conventional weapons. 

FURROW: I would like to hear your 
opinion on the draft dodgers. 

WINNER: I believe these people should 
be prosecuted by law. 

WOOD: Although they have a point, I 
don't agree with them, because it is 
morally wrong, and thev should be 
definitely prosecuted by law. 

SMITH: I am totally against them and 
they should be punished. Thank God 
it has not been done before. 

MORGAN: I disapprove of their actions. 

TOTH: They should be prosecuted by 
law. Pacifist marches should be 
banned, because in time of war indi- 
viduals will have to lose some of Aeir 
rights. 

FURROW :Do you think that the Viet- 
nam war should be the major issue in 
the 1968 elections? 

WINNER: It should be because it is 
affecting everybody. 

WOOD: Definitely. 



SMITH: It is a matter impossible to 
overlook. We must face the issues and 
not avoid them. 

MORGAN: I think it should be a major 
issue. 

TOTH: The war should be the center of 
all arguments in the 1968 elections. 

FURROW: What do you think would be 
the Republican attitude if they would 
be in charge of the government? 

WINNER: Probably a tendency to esca- 
late the war. 

WOOD: Very similar to Johnson's pres- 
ent policy. 

SMITH: They would probably bungle up 
the issue. 

MORGAN: Probably the same. 




T. MORGAN 

TOTH: We would have a more hoi^st 
pohcy. 

FURROW: Would you rather serve your 
country by going to college or fighting 
in Vietnam? 

WINNER: Presently, I feel I am serving 
my country better by going to college, 
because somebody has got to stay and 
run the country. If I would go, I'd be 
doing my duty, but of course I wouldn't 
be happy going under the present 
poHcy. When your time comes to die, 
well .... I 

WOOD: I would probably be of better 
service in Vietnam, that is why I am 
enlisting after graduation. 

SMITH: I feel that I am not contributing 
as much as I could by going to college. 

MORGAN: As soon as I graduate I will 
enlist, but until then I would rather 
stay in school. 

TOTH: I feel that I am contributing 
more by going to college because of 
the no-win attitude we are assuming 
in Vietnam. 

FURROW: What G.O.P. team, accord- 
ing to you, could effectively run the 
Vietnam war if elected in 1968? 

WINNER: I have no preferences in eidier 
party. 

WOOD: Definitely Rockefeller. There 
will not be a great choice of candidates 
because the pohcies will be somewhat 
the same. 

SMITH: Reagan and Scranton. 




D. SMITH 

MORGAN: Nixon and Rockefeller. 

TOTH; Nixon and Reagan. 

FURROW: Would you vote for JOHN- 
SON presently? 

WINNER: I wouldn't. He has to do 
something drastic in Vietnam to be 
re-elected. 

WOOD: Not with his present policy. 




SMITH: No. 

MORGAN: In the 1968 elections, I 
would probably vote for JOHNSON. 

TOTH: If there is a change in his 
policy I will vote for him. 

FURROW: What modifications or 
changes of policy do you suggest? 

WINNER: We should escalate the war 
by increasing the bombing and in- 
creasing our troop strength in South 
Vietnam. If this escalation would im- 
ply a possible confrontation with Red 
China it is a risk that we must face. 
It is a shame that the war is being 
fought this way. Either we go in and 
fight it the right way or we should 
come upon an agreeable solution. It 
is a war to be wo nat any reasonable 
cost. 




WOOD: I suggest that we make a pause 
in the bombing for a reasonable 
amount of time to see whether the 
communists want a settlement in Viet- 
nam. If they do not react, dien I 
suggest we either fij^t a winning war 
or pull out. I am not in favor of this 
last choice because we would lose face, 
and the damage to our reputation 
would be great. 

SMITH: Increase the effectiveness of our 
bombing by stopping their supply 
routes, by doing so the guerrillas will 
become ineffective. We should also 
increase our man power if considered 
necessary. But before we take any of 
these steps we should try to find out 
whether North Vietnam is willing to 
negotiate for peace. We must end the 
war either by increased military action 
or peace negotiations. 

MORGAN: We should make another at- 
tempt for peace by halting our bomb- 
ing, but they'll probably stab us in the 
back again. Afterwards, we should step 
up the bombings and send more tromM. 
I would be glad to be part of this 
escalation. 

TROTH: We should definitely escalate 
the air and ground war. Bomb Hanoi 
and Haiphong and make an aJl-out 
assault of North Vietnam. 

FURROW: I would like to thank all of 
you gentlemen who have so Idiully 
volunteered to make this interview 
possible. It is the purpose of these 
interviews to act as depository for the 
ideas and opinions of fiie members of 
the student body and to further com- 
municate these ideas through your 
newspaper. The FURROW.

SON WITH A BIG BANG! 

Block and Bridle Club 
Travels to U. of P. 

The Delaware Valley College chapter 
of the Block and Bridle Club went on 
their club trip last Thursday. The trip 
encompassed the University of PennsyU 
vania's large animal hospital of the veter- 
inary school at New Bolton Center. Here 
the club was given a tour of the various 
facilities involved in working with large 
animals. They were shown me operating 
procedure for horses and cattle and ob- 
•served an operation being done on a 
cow for a displaced abomasum. They 
were also shown the procedure for plac- 
ing a horse on the operating table. 

From New Bolton the students drove 
to Buck and Doe Run Valley Farms in 
CoatesviUe. Buck and Doe is a subsidi- 
ary of the large King Ranch of Texas 
who besides Buck and Doe has farms in 
Kentucky, Florida, Brazil, Venezuela and 
Australia. The students were shown the 
equipment needed for feeding 6,000 head 
of Santa Gertrudis cattle and were taken 
on a tour of the farm's 11,000 acres. 

In all 80 members attended with Dr. 
Pelle and Mr. Wagner. The trip proved 
to be very interesting and educational 
and everyone had a good time.

Hort Boasts 
Of Activities 

The Hort Club is setting a goal to gain 
the number one spot in the nation this 
year in the American Society of Horti- 
culture Science. You know that the H.C. 
ranked fourth last year, and now that 
there is a national officer (Jay Coiuoy) 
and since a paper was presented tne 
Society feels it can obtain the number 
one position without any trouble. The 
D.V.C. chapter has the largest member- 
ship in the nation! 

Plans are being made to increase our 
action in college intramurals. So far, the 
members are doing very well in football, 
volleyball and bowling. The intramural 
representative is keeping the teams on 
the go and well united. AH mory^u^'t o-^ 
very proud of the great teamwork and 
sportsmanship our members are showing. 

The Hort Club is planning to increase 
our cider and apple sales to augment our 
low budget and increase our campus 
activities. This year, the Club is pur- 
chasing apples and cider from a fresh 
fruit packer to upgrade the quality and 
increase sales. These items will be sold 
during the next two home football games 
as well as to individuals who may obtain 
apples and cider through the Hort De- 
partment. 

A float that will be entered through the 
supervision of Dennis Kalinowsky should 
top anything we have ever undertaken 
in the past. Also, the group is participat- 
ing in Homecoming by entering the 
Queen Contest. Hort will be up and 
ahead in this area for it has the apple 
of your eye and the cream of the crop 
as its queen contestant! ! ! 

The fall trip was cancelled because of 
the lack of time. Plans had been made 
to visit Seabrook Farms, located in New 
Jersey. The trip will take place early 
next fall. 

The Society is planning to have a win- 
ter banquet this year rather than com- 
bining it with the annual spring field 
trip. In this manner, the Society will be 
able to invite the faculty and college ad- 
ministration. 

The Hort Club is looking into the pos- 
sibiUty of buying a chapter pennant ban- 
ner. The Society hopes to purchase a 
trophy case for the Horticulture building 
and a permanent plaque which will have 
the names of seniors who have received 
the outstandinng senior horticulture 
award. 

The club has received many fine 
letters from people all over the nation 
commending us on the fine performance 
and recognition at Texas A & M. At this 
time, the President is urging all Hort. 
students to be thinking of an independent 
research paper or a horticultural survey 
to be the theme of the technical paper. 
This will be presented at the University 
of California's Davis campus next sum- 
mer. 

Anyone wishing to join the Hort Club 
is most welcome to attend the next meet- 
ing. Meetings are every second and 
fourth Wednesday at 8:15 in the field 
crops lab.

DTA Adopts 
Amendment 

At the second monthly meeting of the 
Delta Tau Alpha Honor Society, the pro- 
posed amendment requiring membership 
in the Big Brother Organization was 
voted upon. After the amendment was 
read aloud, it was quickly ratified by a 
majority vote. Richard Scott then urged 
that all Big Brothers locate and keep in 
contact with their respective Freshmen. 

Another item of business was the in- 
duction of three new members. This 
brings the total membership to 59, not 
including the advisor, Dr. Pelle. 

Following the business meeting. Presi- 
dent Clifford Cortelyou introduced Dr. 
Walter Cobb as the guest speaker. Dr. 
Cobb, Research Farm Manager of Branch- 
burg Farms, under the supervision of 
Merck and Company, explained his po- 
sition as Farm Manager and the responsi- 
bilities entailed. His remarks were well 
received. 

Any Delta Tau Alpha member de- 
siring to obtain a DTA button, tie tack 
or odier accessory is reminded to see 
Richard Funt, Dorm 1, Rm. 227, who is 
taking orders. 

The Society reminds all students of 
its tutoring service. Now that the first 
battery of tests are being administered, 
students may discover they need assist- 
ance. Contact any DTA member. 

The next meeting will be held on No- 
vember 9 in Segal Hall. Help boost at- 
tendance!

ment. This year's float will have a out out 
of the United States with the letters 
U. S. A. which are , natiually, the letters 
for this year's theme. On one side of the 
float will be the raw food stuffs and on 
the other will be the processed foods. 

On October 12th, the F. I. Club held 
its club trip. This year the Club traveled 
to the Bakers' Convention in Atlantic 
City, N. T. Fot those who attended, es- 
pecially the one who like to eat, it was 
great. There were displays from machines 
to actual baked goods.

Introduction to New 
Faculty Members 

DAVID E. BENNER 

Originally from Ardmore, Pa., Mr. 
Benner, his wife and two sons are pres- 
ently residing in Centerbridge, New 
Hope, Pa. A graduate of Penn State, he 
enjoys skiing, canoeing, hiking, tennis 
and gymnastics. Dr. Feldstein is the man 
responsible for Mr. Benner coming to 
DVC. Having previous experience at 
Bowman's Hill State Park where he 
taught plant identification and as a bo- 
tanist for ten years, he is a good invest- 
ment for DVC teaching Plant Materials 
and Field Labs. He is comfortable in 
our small and beautiful College but feels 
we should keep it small. As an added 
note, Mr. Benner has an enormous in- 
terest in the field of Conservation. He 
is a member of the Delaware Valley 
Preventive Association as well as being 
secretary of the Natural Resources As- 
sociation. Recently he has completed a 
survey of natural areas for tiie State of 
New Jer^y with the results looking very 
promising . 
DR. PHILLIP J. CRAUL 

Originally from York, Penna., this Penn 
State graduate has an avid interest in 
Forestry and Soils. Having worked 
throughout the United States as a For- 
ester and Soil Scientist, Mr. Craul re- 
turned to Pennsylvania to teach here at 
Delaware Valley College. Presently re- 
siding in Doylestown, the father of four 
children, his hobbies include tennis and 
(especially) photography. Depending on 
his mood (which is usually jolly) Dr. 
Craul believes in "Honorable Labors 
Ri^tlv Done". This man promises to 
be a big asset to the Agronomy majors 
in the future. 
TIMOTHY F. FOLEY 

This newlywed was bom and raised 
in Calesburg, Illinois and is presently 
residing in Doylestown. Interested in 
"EveryQiing and Anything" Mr. Foley is 
a graduate of St. Louis University and 
has previously instructed at Christian 
Brother's College located in Tennesee. 
Teaching Freshman Composition, Mr. 
Foley chose Delaware Valley because of 
its smallness and its eastern location. 
Concerning his philosophy of life, his is 
short and to the point-"To refrain from 
answering impossible questions." Our 
new addition to the faculty has not met 
any difficulties as yet and he could not be 
anything but "HAPPY". 
FRANCIS J. LAWRENCE 

Soon to be married, Mr. Lawrence 
of Abington, Pa., is a new addition to our 
General Studies program. An instructor 
of Freshman Composition as well as 
Literature, he was graduated from La- 
Salle College and Johns Hopkins Uni- 
versity. Having picked DVC because of 
its small size, Mr. Lawrence confides of 
his philosophy (as does the button on 
his door) ""We try HARDER". To ex- 
pand upon the ideas of this man would 
take a book; DVC's latest novelist is 
coming out with one in the spring en- 
titled NO(V)EL or BABEL or PEASOUP- 
SANDWICH. This new instructor should 
prove to be an interesting addition to

WALTER H. WOOD 

A native of Johnstown, Pa., Mr. Wood 
will soon be moving to Doylestown with 
his family. The father of four sons, one 
of whom attends Delaware Valley, does 
"everything" from golfing to bowling, 
from traveling to listening to classical 
music. A graduate of Penn State and the 
University of Idaho the motto of this 
businessman turned professor is "Be kind 
to your fellow man". DVC was the choice 
of this new face in the Horticulture De- 
partment because of its beauty, size, 
progressiveness and most of all a place 
where the individual receives the at- 
tention, not the group. He received his 
background in Horticulture by working 
for his Grandfather's greenhouse busi- 
ness as a youngster. Turning to Food 
Technology in his later years, Mr. Wood 
led an interesting career at Kraft Foods. 
The enormous amount of knowledgeable 
ability found in this man may be demon- 
^ated by the article he has written in 
the April and May issues of 1960 "Quick 
Frozen Foods." 



A Trip to Europe for 

Less Than $100 and 

A Job Opportunity 

Principality of Liechtenstein (Switzer- 
land)— The International Travel Estab- 
lishment of Switzerland has come up 
with a new twist on the matter of spend- 
ing a low cost sojourn in Europe. The 
ITE has set up an entire department that 
is specializing in locating job opportuni- 
ties in Europe for American college stu- 
dents. The travel organization then com- 
bines this phase of a trip to Europe with 
any of a number of low cost wholesale 
tours and transportation arrangements 
and then shows the college student how 
he or she can spend an exciting time in 
Europe for less than $100 including 
transportation. The "Do-it-yourselF" pro- 
gram, as it is called, offers thousands of 
job opportunities such as office work, re- 
sort work, shipboard work, restaurant and 
hotel work, and factory and industrial 
work, etc. In many cases neither knowl- 
edge of a foreign language nor work 
experience is required. 

Interested students may obtain com- 
plete details, an application, job selec- 
tion, and information of special interest 
to students by sending $1 (for the ma- 
terial and air mail postage) to Dept. M 
International Travel Establishment, 68 
Herrengasse, Vaduz, Principality of 
Liechtenstein (Switzerland). 

Agronomy Travels 
To Cornell 

by Nick Spielberger 

On October 6th and 7th the Agronomy 
Club took a trip to Cornell University. 
The members of the Club on the trip 
stayed on campus in the Student Union 
Building. 

The tours started at noon on Friday. 
Many things were seen such as the new 
14-story Agronomy Building and test 
plots. Many things were learned such as 
different spacing of soybeans, tests with 
selected herbicides, and growing crqps 
that usually grow in the South. When 
darkness fell there were many social ac- 
tivities, and everyone participated in 
them to their fullest extent. 

The tours started on Saturday morning 
again. In the Plant Pathology Department 
the men were told how a surplus in nu- 
trients could enhance microorganisms to 
develop and do damage. Here the Club 
met graduate students who explained 
what they were doing with Rant Pathol- 
ogy. The Agronomy Microbiology De- 
partment was next and here the Club 
members saw the effects of soil on dif- 
ferent microorganisms. In the soil-testing 
lab the men observed how a soil-test is 
made. At the end of this long day the 
men came back late Saturday night. All 
of those who went said it was a mem- 
orable experience.

Spotlight . . . 

The Infirmary 

Ned A. Linta 
In this edition of Spotlight we will examine a man who is responsible in a large 
part for the infirmary's efficient operation. 

Mr. Linta is, without exaggeration, one of the 'goingest' men on campus. Even 
now he is in the stages of planning the 1968 Blood Donors Drive. Here are last years' 
figures for the blood bank: 

Number Number of 

Class who gave class members Percent Place 

Seniors 42 132 31.7% 1st 

Juniors 35 190 18.4% 3rd 

Sophomores 52 186 27.9% 2nd 

Freshmen 40 280 14.5% 4th 

•A note to Freshman: This will be an excellent opportunity to show what your class 
can really do. This is a chance to show up the upper classmen and help yourself 
by providing life giving blood for emergencies. 

This year, 'D' day (donors day) falls on December 11, and Mr. Linta told this 
reporter that the quota will be the biggest to date. Everyone will have to do his part 
for his college, his class, his fellow students, and himself. 

The blood bank program is iust a small part of Mr. Linta's responsibilities. At 
any time of the day or night, if he is on campus, he is on call to help. It does not 
matter whether it is a minor illness or an emergency. Like a worried parent he'll 
wait for the doctor's verdict and see that the patient receives the best of care. It is 
hard to imagine how one individual could have so much spirit and drive to handle 
such complexities as the infirmary, sports, intramurals, etc., etc., etc. Yet Ned Lirfta 
does, and does it as well as can be expected. To err is human as they say and at 
times so does Mr. Linta in his impatience to help his fellow man. His selfless 
manner; however, is a credit to the great human being he is.

THE FURROW 



Albright Bows to Del Vol 

Aggies Rebound From 8 pt. Deficit 



Delaware Vafley College, for the sec- 
ond year in a row upset the Lions c^ 
Albright before 2,000 fans in Reading, 
Pa. 

Neither team was able to make su£B- 
cknt advances with the ball in the first 
quarter. This necessitated punts on be- 
half of both teams. The ball progressed 
back and forth until late in the first 
quarter when Albright's Zimmerman 
scored on a 24 yard run. The extra point 
attempt failed. The Aggie defense took 
over at this point and accomplished noth- 
ing. Early in the second quarter, Al- 
bright tackled Kelly in the D.V.C. end 
zone awarding them two points for a 
safety. Half-time score was 8-0 in favor 
of Albright. 

The Aggies returned from the locker 



room and a pep talk with the determina- 
tion to turn the tables on Albright. The 
offense marched 33 yards for a T.D. with 
the help of Nice and Franchella. The 
two point conversion was good as Nice 
caught a bomb from Timko. 

Third quarter was a mad melee of 
fumbles, counter-fumbles, poor plays, and 
confusion, but finally die Aggies had 
earned their second T.D. on a 24 yard 
run by Cappozzoli with the assistance of 
oasses to Franchella. The extra {Mint 
. ttempt failed. 

In the final quarter, Albright again 
found an opening and caught Kelly in 
our own end-zone for their second safety 
and two more pointi. The final score . . . 
Del Val 14, Albright 10. 





Aggies Dump 
Swarthmore 35-21 




Garnet Men 
Gain B/ds 

Swarthmore's winning streak of 16 
games was stopped cold as Delaware 
Valley won 35-21 before 2,000 fans Oct. 
14 on the loser's field. 

Upon winning the toss the Aggies re- 
ceived the ball and began their success- 
ful drive toward the end zone. With Joe 
Franchella catching a pass from Ron 
Timko and with several good runs by 
John Nice left 11 yards to go as Dennis 
Lamm made the touchdown. The attempt 
by Floyd Ritter for the extra point was 

f:ood. The Aggies led 7-0 with less than 
ive minutes into the first quarter. 

The Garnet Men of Swarthmore re- 
ceived the second kick-off but were un- 
able to make gains against the tough 
Aggie defense. About 2 minutes after 
their first score the Aggies were again 
in possession of the ball. This touchdown 
drive was highlighted by a pass to Fran- 
chella, a long run by Nice and two 
more runs by Lamm and Nice, as they 
came within 14 yards of the goal line. 
A pass from Timko to Harry Capozzoli 
spelled a TD and Ritter kicked the extra 
point. The score was 14-0 after ten 
minutes of play. 

It was not until early in the second 



Stump makes a catch 




(^ 



Timko grabs the hike 



Nice stops his man 



quarter that Swarthmore was able to 
score on a pass from Summerton to 
Burton for a TD. McCurdy kicked the 
extra point. 

Mid-way into the ^cond quarter the 
impressive Aggie (^ense began another 
drive which scored. Substantial ground 
yardage was made by Lamm and Nice. 
Timko connected once with Nice and 
tthree times with Capozzoli which in- 
cluded an 11-yard scoring pass. The extra 
point attempt failed. The Aggies took a 
half-time lead, 20-7. 

The second half progressed much the 
same as the first with the defense holding 
Swarthmore to minimum gains as the 
Aggie offense showed impressive strength 
in nearly doubhng the opponent's score. 
The Aggies kicked off to the Little 
Quakers who were unable to penetrate 
the strong defense until a pass was hurled 
to Biuton for a score. Burton caught 6 
passes in the game for 91 yards. The 
extra point was good. 

TTie Aggies received the kick off and 
began a campaign which ended in a 
touchdown after Franchella caught a 

Eass from Timko and several long runs 
y Nice including his 1 yard plunge for 
the score. The Aggies successfully com- 
pleted a 2 point conversion as Nice 
caught the pass from Timko. John Nice 
carried the ball 177 yards and caught 
five passes for 64 yards in the game. 

Swarthmore then had possession of the 
ball after the kick-(^ and managed a 
48 yard gain with a pass completion. 
Gregg Thompson made a beautiful run- 
ning tackle to stop the hustling Little 
Quakers from scoring. However, after 
several attempts, Busillo made a touch- 
down from the 1 yard line and the extra 
point was good. 

The Aggies then picked up the last 
kick-off of the game and went to work 
as Franchella caught 3 passes, Nice car- 
ried 3 times for long ground gains and 
Lamm ran 3 yards for the touchdown 
and Ritter booted the extra point, bring- 
ing the score to 35-21.

Coach John Silan and the new Assis-

Seven returning lettermen, led by Cap-

them, so support your Cross Country team on November 14th . . . Joe 
Franchella's 93 yard run back of an Upsala kickoff, set an Aggie record 
for the longest kickoff return. Joe shattered Frank Radican's 1959 record

Nice broke his old record by gaining 177 yards rushing against Swarth- 
more. John's old record for most yards rushing in one game was 175 
yards against Lebanon Valley last year . . . Here is a little preview for 
D. V. C.'s Homecoming Game against Nichols College of Business Ad- 
ministration. The school is located in Dudley, Mass. and has an enroll- 
ment of 672 students. Their nickname is the Bisons and their school colors 
are green and black. They will have 21 returning lettermen who will try 
and better last year's record of 3 wins and 3 losses. You can expect to 
see Nichols use a Wing T offense with a few variations. In their first 
game against Siena College, the Bisons won by the close score of 14 to 
12. At present their record is 1 win and 2 losses ... In the upcoming 
weeks I look to see Coach Graver's football team take a pair of victories 
by beating Albright and Ursinus. For Cross Country I expect Coach De 
Turk's boys to have a rough go of it against a stubborn Drexel team, 
but to come back with a pair of victories over Moravian and Juniata.

Shutterbugs 
Snap Again 

One of the rarely mentioned clubs is 
back on the scene mis year. With strong 
leadership and strong support from the 
members, few though they may be, the 
Club intends to make this its BEST year. 
It also has a thorough educational pro* 
gram commencing on Nov. 7th. It will 
be concerned with subjects necessary for 
beginners, ranging from how to set-up 
the shot through printing the picture. 
Working sessions in the darkroom are 
also planned as well as numerous films 
and Slide shows. 

Aside from the educational aspect, the 
Photo Club intends to offer its services 
to all interested individuals, dubs, or- 
ganizations, faculty members and the 
administration. It will handle black and 
white work and will be able to supply 
color polaroid shots, if neceisary. Another 
function which it hopes to sponsro is a 
photographv show for A-D^ It will be 
open to all people, so plan ahead and 
start shooting. A gift certificate will be 
offered as first prize. 

Finally, in most future issues of the 
Furrow, in place of this article will appear 
a column entitled Shutterbug Shortcuts. 
Its main object is to make the reader 
aware of some time saving shortcuts in 
photography.

Science Society 
Presents Films 

On Wednesday, October 25, 1967, at 
8:00 P.M., the Science Society presented 
its fint in a series of enlightening fibns 
concerning the realm of Biology. The 
first film, entitled THE THREAD OF 
LIFE, was provided by the Bell Tele- 
phone Company of Pennsylvania. Two 
more films for rature meetings have been 
arranged. 

During the assembly period of October 
2^, Mr. Adelson, Dr. French, Dr. 
Powell, and Dr. Motz held an informal 
meeting with Biology majors anticipating 
graduate school. The faculty members 
spoke of tne procedures for entrance to 
a graduate school, what the graduate 
school looks for in an in-coming graduate 
student, the way in which instruction is 
given in graduate school, the graduate 
majors available, and what the student 
is ejqpected to accomplish in order to re- 
ceive a M.S. or Ph.D. degree. 

Also discussed, were the advantages of 
holding an advanced degree. It was 
pointed out that in industry, promotions 
are given to those who usually have 
higher degrees of learning. This is par- 
ticularly true in large companies in which 
the person responsible for p emotions can 
not investigate all avenues of a person's 
ability; therefore, he concerns himself 
primarily with the accomplishments of a 
person via graduate education. 

Hort Exells In 
Sales and Sports 





Hort has dwie well in the intramural 
programs this year. Their football record 
stands at 6 wins and no losses. They con- 
cluded a successful volleyball season with 
a record of 6-1-0. 

During the Homecoming football game, 
the Society plans to add to its sales of 
apples and cider. In addition to this, 
they are selling Apple Cook Books and 

iohimy Appleseed coloring books for the 
ids, with the approval of the student 
government. These items have been pur- 
chased from the National Apple Institute 
in Washington, D. C. 

The Society has received certificates 
from the American Society of Horticul- 
tural Science. Each member will receive 
a copy when he pays his dues. This docu- 
ment is signed by the National A.C.B. 
(American Collegiate Branch) president, 
Ronald D. Hanson. 

Mr. Edward Silverman, a 1963 D.V.C. 
graduate, will be speaking to the Society 
on November 8th. His topic will be 
Produce Buying. He will demonstrate to 
the membm on how he as a buyer 
chooses quality products for a large food 
supply warehouse. Mr. Silverman works 
for the Food Fair Stores in Philadelphia. 
Tills meeting should be most informative 
and educational.

Circle K 

Club Plays Host 

On Satiu-day, October 21, a group of 
52 children and several of their parents 
arrived at Delaware Valley Col^ge to 
experience what proved to be an inter- 
esting and educational day away from 
the city. 

They were guests of an inter-college 
Circle K Club committee of Drexel, Tem- 
ple, University of Pennsylvania, and Del- 
aware Valley club members. 

The day began with a picnic lunch on 
the banks of Lake Archer. From here 
the children were boarded on hay wag- 
ons and the tour began. The first stop 
was the dairy farm where the children 
had a chance to see and pet the calves, 
heifers, bulls, and horses. A few even 
tried their hand at milking the cows. On 
their way again, the children headed for 
the orchards and com fields where they 
took com ears and com stalks for sou- 
venirs. Next the three groups were 
divided up to individuaUy visit the sheep, 
beef cattle, and hog pens. The children 
were especially attracted to the baby 
pigs. The tour was then concluded at the 
farm machinery building. The children 
left with a load of unforgettable experi- 
ences that thev will be able to appreciate 
and evaluate later in life. 

A few people who contributed much 
time to this project are: Mr. WoUFord, 
£)elaware Valley's club faculty advisor; 
James Sickora, Dave Shellenberger, Rich 
Sauer, Dave Seipel, Ektna Ingerto, and 
Rich Serwell helping in the wagons. 

Soil Conservationists 
At Convention 

The iniUal 1967-68 meeUng of the 
S.C.S. was called to order by President 
Tom Scudder. The treasiu-er's report in- 
dicated a definite need for funds. A few 
suggestions were given, but talk is just 
talk! This time it isn't just talk. The club 
plans to raise its needed funds, and hopes 
to carry out these plans. 

The main topic of the evening was the 
S.C.E. National Convention hem in Des 
Moines, Iowa. This was attended by Dt. 
Julian Pmndeanu and two of your fellow 
students : Wayne Wirmer and James Kem- 
merer. These two students presented 
papers at the Student Symposium on 
Wednesday morning, August 16, 1967. 
The papers, entitled "Open Space, Ptes- 
ent and Future Challenge" and "Soil 
Conservation in the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania" were very well received. 
As Dr. Pmndeanu statea after the meet- 
ing, "These men v/ere excellent repre- 
sentatives of the College." 

Slides were shown of the trip and of 
the students' tour of Iowa State Univer- 
sity, an experience in itedf . It is a gluune 
that everyone at D.V.C. couldn't share 
in this worthwhile adventure. 

The meeting closed with ideas and 
thoughts toward the 1968 National Con- 
vention in Athens, Georgia. 




Graduates Talk 
To Dairy Society 

The second meeting of the Delaware 
Valley College Dairy Society was called 
to order by President Bmce Jenny on 
October 16. Our membership has in- 
creased sharply with the addition of an- 
other freshman class. 

Among the topics discussed were dues, 
the selling of dairy products at the next 
two home football games, intramurals, 
the Homecoming Queen, and the float 
contest. Ken Schoenberg was appointed 
chairman of the float committee and is 
accepting ideas. Bruce Jenny is collecting 
the pictiu-es of all caiididates for Dairy 
Queen of Homecoming. 

For the evening's entertainment Mr. 
Sauer recruited two fellow graduates: 
Dick Scott and Allen Andrews of Long 
Valley, N. J., both D.V.C. 65. At present 
they are partners in a 240 cow free stall 
operation. They answered many questions 
conceming the practical side of dairying 
and what a young man might encounter 
when he starts farming. 

A motion to adjoum brou^t a most 
interesting meeting to a close. 



FSEE Exam 
November 18 

Delaware Valley College seniors will 
have an opportunity to compete in the 
very popular Federal Service Entrance 
Examination when it is administered on 
campus Saturday, November 18. Com- 
plete details and application forms are 
now available at the Placement Office 
and from W. Dunscombe, President of 
the Senior Class. 

Diuing the past twelve years, more 
than 93,000 young men and women have 
used the Federal Service Entrance Exam- 
ination as a pathway to rewarding careers 
in Government. Over 6,500 recent college 
graduates were hired from die FSEE dur- 
ing the six-month period from January 
through June 1967 alone. Known as the 
FSEE, this examination is unquestionably 
the most popular employment program 
ever devised. 

FSEE was designed with the college 
student in mind. The test covers only 
verbal abilities and quantitative reason- 
ing, no specific subject matter knowledge 
is required to qualify. One test, taken 
one time in one place opens the door to 
approximately 60 different career fields 
in as many Federal agencies at kx;ations 
all over the country. 

Open to seniors and graduates in any 
academic major the program is api»o- 
priate for students in all curricula except 
engineering, the Physical sciences, ac- 
counting and a limited number of other 
technical fields. (Other avenues of em- 
ployment are available for students ma- 
joring in specific professional areas.) 

The salaries of this year's graduates 
will begin at either $5,331 or $6,451 a 
year. The higher starting salary is paid 
to students having good academic records. 

Higher salaries are also paid to appli- 
cants who qualify in the very competitive 
Management Intern p(^oD of the exam- 
ination. Bachelor degree graduates \vho 
are appointed as Interns are paid $6,451 
a year to start and those witn advanced 
degrees begin at $7,696. 

Perhaps even more important than 
starting salaries are the opportunities of- 
fered for rapid progression to positions 
of responsibility and authority. Many 
^duates who entered Government in 
the middle and late 1950's have abeady 
achieved executive status a* salaries up 
to $15,000 a year. After five years the 
average FSEE recmit has generally 
reached a salary level between $9,000 
and $13,000 a year. 

You can now explore these Govern- 
ment career opportunities with a mini- 
mum of inconvenience by competing in 
the FSEE written test when it is given 
here on campus. Full details are currently 
available from the Placement Office. 

Remember — Government service of- 
fers the opportunity to: 

— work on challenging programs of na- 
tional and international impact. 

— be trained for positions of responsi- 
bility and leadership. 

— eam attractive salaries with regular 
raises and advancement based on merit 
alone. 

— gain professional recognition; and, 

— share in the excellent fringe benefits 
offered by the Federal Service.

The Infirmary 

POLICY and POTPOURRI 



A few weeks ago this reporter con- 
ducted a brief interview with Dr. 
Schumacher, so brief that it was not 
used in this column. However he had 
one thing to say which has come to pass 
to be of significance. When asked what 
the biggest problem he faced in the in- 
firmary was, lie stated that it was students 
taking advantage of infirmary excuses. 
He then said tnat he could see in the 
future a stricter control of excuses. This 
fact is no longer in the future. In a re- 
cent interview, Mr. Linta stated that the 
only excuses now issued will be 'lx)nified 
medical excuses." This is not to say that 
a student cannot get an excuse if he has 
an illness serious enough to keep him 
from attending class. It is the policy, 
however, that all excuses have to be 
signed by the doctor and that all excuses 
can be challenged bv the faculty. The 
measure is not intended to penalize th( 
sick but is intended to discourage fakes 
and those with minor ills who could have 
come back after class. No longer will a 
student be able to duck an exam by hid- 
ing under an infirmary excuse. This Stu- 
dent Health Service policy is in the best 
interests of the student body and is de- 
signed so that only those who really de- 
serve excuses get them. 



Infinnary Nol«« 

All classes should get their blood bank 
committees together tor a meeting around 
Thanksgiving. 

These last weeks have seen a leveling 
off of cases in the infinnary as the stu- 
dents becMne accustomed to college life 
again. 

Any student that feels that he would 
like a flu shot should see the nurse some- 
time between classes. One will be admin- 
istered for the nominal charge of $1.00. 
This offer applies only to students. There 
will be no nu clinic tnis year. 

Vitamins are still available at cost in 
the infirmary. The low charge is necessary 
to keep the supply replenished. 

It is stressed that if stricken on or off 
campus please contact the infirmary as 
soon as possible. The insurance forms 
u tve to be filled out and reported early 
veeds this process up. It is also ad- 
vised that all the medical bills be turned 
in to the infirmary so that all that can be 
covered will be. 

As a reminder, the blood bank donors' 
day is coming up fast. This year it will 
be held on December 11, 1967. Be siu-e 
not to forget to give so that otfiers may 
live.

Circh K Car 
Bash Nov. 11 

During the last meeting of the club, 
its members elected a beautiful Queen 
who will represent Circle K in the Home- 
coming Queen contest. 

The lucky girl was Miss Rita Schaeffer 
from Mullica Hill, New Jersey. She is a 
nursing graduate from Fitzgerald Mercy 
Hospital School of Nursing in Derby, 
Pennsylvania. She graduated from this 
institution in August of 1967. Presently, 
she is working at Pinecrest Niursing 
Home. She is 21 years old. During the 
Homecoming Week-end, she will be es- 
corted by Bud Renter from Richmond, 
New Jereey. Miss Circle K will be riding 
in the same car with Miss Clee Club. 

As part of the club's service to the 
college, all of the members have volun- 
teered to take out the chairs after the 
Judy Collins' concert. Aiding the college 
even further, Circle K's "roving mem- 
bers" also volunteered to strip the beds 
on Sunday morning that the Homecoming 
guests will be using during this week- 
end. 

The Club has planned a Car Bash for 
Parents' Week-end which is to be held 
on Nov. 11th. The prices will be low, 
one shot for 25 cents and three for 50 
cents, and the Bash will serve as pre- 
game and half time amusement. 

With all these projects in the bag and 
many more to come, the Circle K club is 
going to "move ahead". 



Agronomy and Three 
Girls Get a Lot Done 



EFFICIENT COURT IMPARTS JUSTICE 



This year the theme for Homecoming 
was Understanding, Service, and Achieve- 
ment. With this theme in mind, the 
Agronomy Club locked itself in the farm 
machinery building and set forth to build 
the outstanding float. The actual plans 
were started weeks before Homecoming, 
but the float didn't take form until Mon- 
day, the ^Hh. Not much was done on 
that night, but on Tuesday progress took 
a great leap. This was because of one 
man: Bill Varona. He was supposed to 
go out and get nails, which he did, but 
he came back with more. Bill is very in- 
genious and when he saw three girls 
roaming around the campus he asked 
them to come and help. Tney did and a 
lot got done. Well, on the following nights 
the float really started to look like some- 
thing and by Friday the Agronomy Club 
was ready to show what the great mas- 
ters had put together. And so another 
Homecoming has come and gone with 
Agronomy in there fighting.

AUTHORITY ! ! ! ! 

At a recent Student Government meeting the authority of the Government to 
Tender approval of a club activity was questioned. What are the rights of the Student 
Government in this matter? Is it the right of the Government to be the most powerful 
student organization on campus? 

In order to have a club event placed on the college calendar it is necessary to 
go through the Student Government to obtain approval. At this time it IS the re- 
sponsibility of the Government to question the manner in which the event will be 
' carried out. This does net mean that every detail of the event must be submitted to 
the Government for approval. On the other hand the Government should not approve 
any activity which may not be carried out in the proper way. Questions concerning 
the use of the students' parking facilities, the supervision of the activity, etc., are 
questions which must be asked to protect the students' interests. 

The Government has by no means the right to discriminate against a club without 
just cause. Internal strife within a club is by no means the business of the Student 
Government as long as it does not jeopardize the students' interests or the name of 
the college. 

This year's Government, for the most part, is a hard working and conscientious 
one. It is protecting the students' interests to the best of its ability and it is energetic- 
ally seeking to expand its ability to do this. It is important that the student body 
supports the actions of the Government, for the Government will get nowhere without 
it.

Department of Dairy Science 
University of Maryland 
College Park, Maryland 
October 26, 1967 

Greetings fellow Aggies, 

For those that do not know me, I am 
a very recent graduate of D.V.C., 1967 
to be exact. I was a Dairy major. I am 
presently a graduate student at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland in Dairy Nutrition. 

I would like to pass on a few ideas to 
those of you intending to go to Graduate 
school, specifically, in the Animal Science 
field. 

Despite the claims of some D.V.C. 
students, the course work at D.V.C. gives 
you a good practical background which 
is very useful in Graduate school. There 
is another fact to consider however. 
While the basic course work in the 
Animal Sciences at D.V.C. will get you 
into Graduate school, you will find your- 
self in a real fix if that is all you have 
"under your belt." If you are planning 
to enter Graduate school you must realize 
that you are not pushed hard enough at 
D.V.C. There are a variety of courses 
that are not required which you will need 
at Graduate scnool. If you naven't taken 
them you may be required to take them 
at the Graduate school you attend. Below 
I give some courses and ideas which may 
aid you in Graduate school. 

1) Quantitative Analysis — the areas 
studied in this course are of utmost im- 
portance in any lab work you do during 
your research. 

2) Biochemistry and Organic Chem- 
istry are required for Animal Science 
majors at D.V.C. but make sure your 
grade is good and you understand all the 
concepts. If possible, take an advanced 
course in Biochemistry and Organic. 

3) Statistics — while it is probable 
that you will be taking Statistics in Grad- 
uate school, you will be well off taking 
Statistics at D.V.C. You will find Grad- 
uate Statistics much easier with a basic 
understanding of the concepts. Statistics 
is important. Biometrics (biological sta- 
tistics) is the basis for all experimental 
work. 

4) Physics — may be required by the 
Graduate school you want to attend; it 
is well to find out. 

5) Advanced Math courses may be of 

From the Dean 



help, depending upon your planned major 
field. 

6) Make sure you get a well-rounded 
background in the Animal Sciences in 
general. In many cases you may need to 
know something out of your major field. 
This is especially true if you are assisting 
in a course. I know, I am an assistant in 
a basic Animal Science course. 

7) Prepare yourself for Graduate 
school, its no cup of tea. Learn to take 
good notes and assimilate knowledge 
quickly. Get into the habit of studying 
all your courses for a little while each 
day. It is a lot easier to learn something 
if it is constantly reviewing itself in your 
mind. 

8) If you find the courses at D.V.C. 
exceedingly difficult you had better think 
twice about going to Graduate school. 
On the other hand if you think D.V.C. 
courses are easy, be prepared for Grad- 
uate courses — Uiey may catch you off 
guard. 

Personal adjustment to University life 
may h t^A, ifficult for some. While Univer- 
sities u.l large, their Graduate programs 
in the Animal Sciences are usually small 
compared to their undergraduate pro- 
grams. As a result the atmosphere may 
not be as formal. 

The temptations at a large university 
are numerous. Such universities pride 
themselves in their social functions. One 
of the best ways to ruin your Graduate 
career is to jump into Ae social life 
"whole hog." Even veteran iieniors of a 
large university, who are used to the 
coed institution, do not participate in all 
the social events. If you ure a typical 
Aggie you may find tfie temptations ir- 
resistable (mainly the fences). Resist! 
Graduate school is only about two years 
of your time; vou can sursive that time 
with only one aate per week. 

I might have seemed facetious through 
parts of this letter but I'm "telling it like 
it is." I hope some of you have gained 
something from this letter. I wish some- 
one had given me some of these ideas 
about the beginning of my Junior year, 
I would have an easier time of it. 

Richard Dunning '67 

P.S.— If your grades are good, think 
about Graduate school; a B.S. De- 
gree is becoming too common.

Oh no — / just carry my lunch in it. 



On October 23, 24, and 25, 1967 Mr. Hartley and I attended the 
Annual Meeting of the College Entrance Examination Board and the 

College Scholarship Service in Chicago, 111. Repre- 
sentatives from all sections of the country and most 
of the Colleges and Universities were present. In ad- 
dition to the business meetings we heard many fine 
speakers, including representatives from the United 
States Office of Education. 

They say if you learn one thing from a meeting 
such as this it has been a profitable experience. This 
was certainly true as far as I was concerned. The 
most important thing I gain at a conference however, 
are the informal discussions one has with people from 
other Colleges. When I hear of the problems that exist 
on other campuses I am always pleased that I am 
associated with Delaware Valley College. 

This fact was brought home again on Friday, Oct. 
27, when I had occasion to be in Harrisburg to attend 
the Pennsylvania State Education Association Confer- 
ence in the company of Dr. Feldstein, Mr. Adelson and Mr. Hartley. 

Most of the problems discussed at this meeting just do not exist at 
our College, for which I am very grateful. I feel this is due primarily to 
the fact that we are a small College and to the fact that we enjoy a 
certain closeness between the students. Faculty and Administration, 
which is impossible to attain at larger colleges. 

It's nice to get away for a few days, but I am always glad to return 
to our beautiful campus and the atmosphere of Delaware Valley College.

P«0« Fiv« 




AS I SEE IT 



As I See It, Student Court is still in a poor spot, very unofficial. De- 
mand action, B. Dunscombe, W. Winner, Mr. Covington, Mrs. Smith, 
anyone. 

As I See It, good tire patches are back, Mystery Meat has returned 
to DVC. Bill Edmunds, how about a poll on the cateferia meals? 

As I See It, until the dining hall waste removal system is revamped, 
have a pair of overshoes handy. Otherwise you might get your feet rinsed 
with sour milk and other similar delights. Mr. Hanlon, I am calling. 

As I See It, as long as I am on the subject, music is nice but who can 
hear it? 

As I See It, the cafeteria can not feed the student body efficiently. 
Maybe we need a new dining hall? 

As I See It, I don't see the yearbook. 

As I See It, letters to the editor are pretty poor. Speak Out! Students, 
Clubs, Classes, praise or gripes, and the faculty too. Do not forget it's 
your voice. 

As I See It, pictures in the Furrow need captions. By the way Bill 
how about by-lines for articles? 

As I See It, Work Hall residents were in poor shape for Homecoming. 
Someone should have supplied a list of partially vacant rooms. Mr. Saurs, 
are you Hstening? 

As I See It, a janitor's work is never done but must it be so noisy 
at 7:30 A.M. 

As I See It, temporary parking stickers should be more frequently 
issued. $ for the school, convenience for the student. 

As I See It, profs who read from the text constantly should take a 
basic speech course. I believe Mr. Muir has one for sale. 

As I See It, the Bio lab looks quite dilapidated. What will become of 
our only pre-revolutionary building? 

As I See It, Minutes from the S.G. meetings should not arrive one 
week late. Makes for dull reading. 

As I See It, the Southern fried chicken served on campus is more like 
Southern fried grease. 

As I See It, the Mihes should be commended for their gallant effort 
to restrict the activities of the Mad Bomber during the past week. 

As I See It, it's only a 40 minute drive to Ursinus College. Why were 
there so few people to cheer on the team? 

As I See It, what evil lurks in the hearts of men? Only the Shadows 
who prowl nights behind the chicken coups know 

As I See It, Faculty should be issued free tickets to important campus 
events. After purchasing a dress and dinner for the wife, it can run into 
forty or fifty dollars for the evening. 

As I See It, Sophomores have no right to grumble over the operation 
of Customs. You, as a class, voted to accept the revisions. 

As I See It, I believe in being friendly to other people. Since Milies 
are people, I can not see why students must refrain from showing them 
the respect and friendship they deserve as people.

Letter to the Editor 



A Critical Comment 



Mr. William Edmunds, Editor 
Delaware Valley College 
Doylestown, Penna. 18901 
Dear Bill, 

I want to compliment you and your 
staff on the finest newspaper that Dela- 
ware College has seen in many years. It 
is your hard work and contributions that 
make this a great asset to our college. 
Along with the contributions made by 
athletics, clubs, professors, and students, 
the 'Furrow" adds to the goals of our 
college. With all these contributions, 
every one will benefit when he leaves our 
campus. 

I would also like to express an opinion 
of mine at this time concerning Mr. 
Egbert. I believe that Mr. Egbert is 
doing a worth while thing by expressing 
his opinion. The manner in which he is 
doing it may be the best way because no 



one knows who to fire back to or reply to 
his criticism. Thus he is not called to the 
administration or harassed by other con- 
cerned students. But on the other hand, 
AS I SEE IT, everyone who writes should 
take a responsibility for what he has to 
say. AS I SEE IT Mr. Egbert takes the 
easy way out as so many people do. AS 
I SEE IT Mr. Egbert you should be in 
the position to be criticized before you 
have the right to criticize. AS I SEE IT 
Mr. Egbert vou're so willing to pass out 
criticism and take no responsibility, but 
you are unwilling to take the responsi- 
bility to receive and be criticized your- 
self. 

Thank you, Bill, for letting me express 
myself. 

Sincerely, 
Richard Funt 
Student Government 



DEL VAL AND YOU 

Joseph Rothschild, Associate Editor 

Election day this year for the citizens of the various states in the 
United States will be held on Tuesday, November 7. One of the impor- 
tant issues in the State of New York is a new Constitution. The people 
of New York will be voting for acceptance or rejection of this new 
Constitution. 

This one fact has brought this writer to think about the structure of 
our Constitution and the By-Laws of the Student Government. This year 
for the first time there were primary elections for candidates in the 
Freshman Class. I think this is a great step forward and those responsible 
should be congratulated. But now there is something that is more im- 
portant; the election of Student Government Vice President. Here is a 
very important position and the man who holds this office is elected by 
the members of the Student Government. If for any reason the man who 
is elected to the position of President cannot hold the office, the Vice 
President takes over. This means that the Vice President, acting as 
President, will be the choice of the Student Government and not of the 
Student Body. Is this really right? No, it is not because he is not the 
"people's choice." The Student Government should do something now 
about this undemocratic procedure, so that it will be corrected by the 
time Student Government elections come up again. 

The students of Del Val should do some serious thinking about this. 
This type of case might effect YOU in some unforeseeable instance where 
the man that governs YOU will not be the popular choice. In a national 
election we vote for both the President and the Vice President, so why 
should it be any different here. Go to your class representatives and tell 
them how you feel. Make them change Article I, Sections 3b and 3c of 
the By-Laws so that YOU will have a more democratic system. There 
is no justifiable excuse for letting this practice continue only because it 
is the present practice. 

To the Student Government I say this; you should do some revamp- 
ing of the Constitution and of the By-Laws. The college is getting larger 
and representation under the law is not equal. 



THE GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT 
a report from the S. G. President 

The Student Government is working for the student body constantly. 
In the past weeks I have received numerous questions as to just what 
the Student Government is doing. Many times the work that is being 
^ . JBB^B^ carried out can not always be seen. Some decisions 
^mt ji^^^H ^^^ ^^^^ ^P because of proper approval. However the 
Sr^ aHl^B ^^^^'^^^ "^^^^ ^^^^ many things into consideration 
f^ ^^^B, before criticizing. For example one of the things I 

have been approached on concerns the Student Court. 
This year the Student Court is stronger than ever be- 
fore. The constitution is being followed to the letter 
and the court sessions are being conducted in a very 
orderly fashion. I believe the question in the last issue 
of the Furrow was, why "not a nice paneled room to 
match the mahogany gavel" used? This type of room 
would certainly be ideal as well as many other things 
on campus would be. But here again we must consider 
many factors. The Student Government room was 
given as a suggested place for Student Court, but any 
student that has visited the Student Government room 
knows how crowded it is at these meetings. With the 
number of people attending Court, either participating or observing, it 
would be impossible to pack everyone into the Student Government 
room. The classroom in Bamess Hall has also been suggested. This also 
creates a problem for students that are studying and not attending the 
court session. Until a workable solution is found the court will continue 
to be held in Segal Hall. 

It appears that it is again necessary to ask for the students' coopera- 
tion regarding vending machines on campus. About this time last year 
the Sealtest Company placed milk and ice cream machines on our cam- 
pus. At the last Student Government meeting it was reported that once 
again students are abusing these machines. Because of this constant abuse 
the Sealtest Company is now considering removing these machines. I 
would like to remind the students that these machines are placed in the 
dormitories for your convenience and not abuse. Let's take care of what 
we have so that it won't be such a problem to acquire more and greater 
things on campus. Unity and cooperation are the key to progress and 
success for your Student Government.

The forecast was for 
rain but they came any- 
way. The campus bustled 
with activity. The effort put 
into the construction of 
the floats surmounted even 
that of studying for tests. 
Also, the boys practiced 
the art of scavenging to its 
fullest. But as the parade 
proceeded through town 
the students received com- 
ments like, "Bautlful, won- 
derful or neat." 

This was only the start 
of Homecoming weekend. 
Just after the parade, the 
Frosh, on their last day of 
customs, burned the wood 
which they had so diligent- 
ly collected. Finally, to top

The Aggies of Delaware Valley Col- 
lege overwhelmed the Bisons of Nichols 
College, from Dudley, Massachusetts. 
The weather for the game was partly 
cloud v and cold. A rain soaked field re- 
sulted from heavy rains which continued 
to within several hours of the game. 

The Aggies kicked off to the visiting 
Bisons who returned the ball to their own 
25 yardline. The Bisons were unable to 
move the ball and were forced to punt. 
After two p)od running plays bv the 
Aggies, Nichols intercepted the ball. The 
Bisons were forced to punt again. The 
Aggies, in possession, began making yard- 
age as John Nice ran several successful 
plays. It was in the early minutes of the 
second quarter when Ron Timko fired 
the scoring pass to Harrv Cappozzola for 
the final seven vards. The kicK by Floyd 
Ritter was good. The score: 7-0. 

The Aggies again kicked off and 
stopped the Bison return on the 30 yard 
hne. An interception by Gregg Thomp- 
son gave the Aggies the ball. Timko 
connected with Joe Franchella and Bill 
Thome and John Nice carried for several 
ground gains including the touchdown 
run up the middle. With the successful 
Ritter kick, the score stood 14-0 at the 
half. 



The Aggies received the kick off at 
the se(x>naf half. A long ground drive 
began as Nice and Dennis Shank each 
carried twice for substantial yardage. 
Dennis Lamm then caught a pass f^om 
Timko which left two yards to go for the 
touchdown. John Nice made the TD and 
Ritter's extra point was good. The score 
was 21-0. 

Late in the third quarter Jim Smith 
filled the quarterback slot. Early in the 
fourth quarter Floyd Ritter kicked a 
68 yard punt; his average for the game 
was 46 yards. Pat Day intercepted the 
ball and this the Aggies took advantage 
of. A pass from Timko to Franchella set 
John Nice up for another TD. The extra 
point was good and the score was 28-0. 

As the last quarter progressed the 
Bisons w«re finally able to score and to 
successfully complete the 2 point con- 
version, giving tnem a mere 8 to the 
Aggies 28.

Delaware Valley 
Trounces Ursinus 

5 Aggies Score 6 T.D.'s 



The Delaware Valley Aggies overpow- 
ered Ursinus College 42-14 by scoring in 
every quarter on Otetober 28. A capacity 
Homecoming crowd was on hand at Pat- 
terson field in CoUegeville, Pa. 

Ursinus won the t(»s and chose to re- 
ceive the kick-off. A long high boot by 
Floyd Ritter gave the Lions the ball on 
their 26 yard line. Ursinus was unable 
to make enough ground and was forced 
to kick. The Aggies receiv^ the ball on 
the 20 yard line and began to move out. 
Dennis Lamm and John Nice ran two 
good ground plays and Nice caught two 
passes including a 25 yard pass for the 
first score of the game. An extra point 
attempt failed leaving the score 6-0. 

Ursinus then received the Aggie kick- 
off. The fast maneuvering of Joe Corvaia 
enabled the Lions to score. The TD and 
the extra point put the Lions ahead by 
one point for a snort time. 

The Aggies received the ball on their 
35 yard line but failed to move it and 
had to kick. It was the Lions ball on the 
10 yard line but they failed to make 
mentionable gains. Before long the Aggies 
were headed for another toucndown with 
the quarterbacking of Jim Smith who 
was relieved by Ron Timko. Timko 
handed Nice tfie ball who ran for the 
final 6 yards up the middle. A pass from 
Timko to Harry Cappozzoli successfully 
completed the two point conversion at- 
tempt and made the score 14-7. 

The Aggies kicked off and shortly were 
back in control of the ball. Timko con- 
nected two good passes to Joe Franchella 



and Cappozs>li. Timko, with all inten-. 
tions of passing saw daylight on the left, 
and with good blocking by fellow Aggies 
he sprinted 49 yards for the touchdown. 
Ritter booted for the extra point. The 
score was 21-7. 

The Lions scored again late in the 
second period when Coravia caught a 
pass and ran 74 yards for a TD. Their 
extra point attempt was good. The half 
time score was 21-14. 

The Aggies received the kick-off of the 
second half with another touchdown in 
the making. Timko handed the ball to 
Nice and Lamm for good ground gains 
after which Bill Thome and Cappazzoh 
each caught a pass, leaving only 6 yards 
to the goal line. The score was made on 
a run by Dennis Shank. 28-14 was the 
score. 

Shortly after the start of the fourth 
quarter the Aggies started on another 
touchdown drive. With three long passes, 
one to Cappozzoli and two to Franchella, 
including the 14 yard scoring pass 
brought the score to 35-14 when the 
extra point attempt was good. 

The last score of the game was made 
on a pass interception made by Stan 
Sitarski on a 60 yard run. The extra 
point was good and the final score was 
42-14.

Final Vicfory Closes Great Season 



The Delaware Valley College Aggies 
whipped the Warriors of Lycoming Col- 
lege 48-30. The weather for this annual 
Parents Day Football Came was cool and 
sunny. 

Upon winning the toss the Aggies 
chose to receive the kick-off which tney 
returned to the 38 yard line. Floyd Ritter 
booted a 43 yard punt. The Warriors were 
first on the scoreboard after a couple of 
long runs and a pass for the touchdown. 
The attempt for the extra point was not 
successful. The score was 6-0. 

The second touchdown and the first 
for the Aggies came when Pat Day re- 
turned a punt across the goal line. Ritter 
kicked for the extra point and the Aggie's 
lead began. The score was 7-6. 

Floyof Ritter kicked off to the Warriors 
who fumbled the ball and the Aggies 
gained possession. Dennis Shank and 
Don Chance alternated plays as they 
both gained yardage. Chance made the 
touchdown on a run up the middle. Rit- 



ter's extra point made the score 14-6. 

Ritter kicked off for the Aggies and it 
was the Warriors' ball on their 29 yard 
line. Gregg Scott intercepted a pass and 
ran it for the touchdown. Ritter 's extra 
point kick made the score 21-6. 

The next highlight of the game came 
when Joe Franchella ran a 50 yard, school 
record, punt return to the Warrior 15 
yard line. After the Aggies narrowly 
missed another touchdown, it was the 
Warrior's ball. The Aggies regained pos- 
session when Fred Jannotti recovered 
a Warrior fiunble. Lacking sufficient 
gains, the Aggies had to give up posses- 
sion of the ball. The Warriors had several 
successful aerial plays which gave them 
their second touchdown. This was topped 
by a successful 2 point conversion at- 
tempt. The score was 21-14. 

The Warrior's kick-off left the ball on 
the 30 yard line of the Aggies. Ron Timko

Peace Corps Volunteers to 
Obtain Draft Deferments 



' WASHINGTON, Nov. 20— The Peace 
Corps announced today it will intervene 
on behalf of Volunteers seeking draft 
deferments for two years of overseas 
service. 

Agency Director Jack Vaughn, con- 
cerned by mounting induction calls to 
Volunteers serving overseas, said he will 
take an "active role" in seeking future 
deferment cases before the Presidential 
Appeal Board — the court of last resort 
for draft reclassifications. 

In the past the agency performed a 
largely informational tunction — advising 
Volunteers and Trainees of Selective Serv- 
ice laws and procedures and confirming 
to local boards the fact of the Volunteer's 
service. 

In future appeals, Vaughn will write 
letters to the board describing the cir- 
cumstances in each case and urging board 
members to grant a deferment until com- 
pletion of the Volunteer's overseas tour. 

"We have a serious situation," he said. 
"The problem of induction notices to 
overseas Volunteers is becoming a major 
concern for us. Pulling a Volunteer off a 
productive job at mid-tour is unfair to 
the nation, the host country, the Peace 
Corps and the individual." 

Vaughn said Peace Corps Volunteers 
have lost about 600 deferment appeals 
before the three-man board in the last 
six and one-half years. While adverse 
rulings by the national board have in- 
volve less than one-half of one per cent 
of the estimated 15,000 draft-eligible 
men to have served in the Peace Corps, 
"virtually all of these have occured in 
the past year," he said. 

CW the approximately 25 Volunteers 
who have already returned to the United 
States for draft induction, two were dis- 
qualified for physical reasons and re- 
turned to their overseas assignments. 

"The vast majority of Peace Corps Vol- 
unteers are grant^ deferments for two 
years of overseas duty because their serv- 
ice is deemed by their local boards to be 
"in the national interest," as recom- 
mended by Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, 
the draft director. 

However, some local Selective Service 



boards refuse deferments even though 
Peace Corps service does not relieve 
Volunteers of their draft obligations. If 
the local board is upheld by the State 
Appeal Board, the case may reach the 
Presidential Appeal Board which makes 
the final decision. 

The appeal process often takes months 
to be resolved and the Peace Corps fre- 
quently sends Volunteers to their over- 
seas sites while their appeals for defer- 
ment are pending. 

Vaughn said the Peace Corps, having 
provided upwards of 400 hours of in- 
tensive language training during the 12 
to 14 weeks of preparation, often sends 
Volunteers overseas to begin service 
"rather than risk the loss of their newly- 
earned language fluency during the long 
waits for final appro\ ul or disapproval of 
deferment requests." 

Vaughn said, "So long as the chances 
for deferment are good this system makes 
sense, but as more and more Volunteers 
lose their appeals we may have to re- 
consider the process and keep them, a 
wasting asset, in the United States until 
their cases are resolved." 

He also said induction calls for Volun- 
teers overseas "disrupts the continuity of 
carefully planned projects by host coun- 
try governments who also have invested 
a large amount of time and money in the 
program." 

Vaughn also noted that in a number 
of cases, host country governments have 
been unable to replace drafted Volunteer 
teachers.

The FURROW POLL 

— Sfudenfs 

Veto More 

Student Government 

Power/ 

In this issue's poll, students were asked 
about some of their ideas concerning the 
activities of Student Government. 

With regard to the present powers of 
Student Government, 60S who were asked 
re^;)onded that its power should remain 
the same: 30% wanted to have its power 
expanded, while a mere 10% thought tfiat 
S. G. should have its power limited. One 
person felt that Student Government 
should be abolished altogether. 

A note of interest, particularly to the 
Student Government themselves: three 
out of everv four students interviewed 
knew who their representatives were. 

THE FURROW also wanted to know 
if there were any suggestions which the 
students had for S. G. to undertake, of 
which a partial list of those requests 
follows: 

More assemblies of entertaining nature; 
Improve the student store — more 
variety, lower prices; 

Reduce court fines; 

Sponsor some form of inter-class ac- 
tivity; 

Become the sole director of all social 
activities on campus; 

Initiate a project to clean up the 
campus; 

Attempt to provide for new toeekend 
activities, especially more mixers; 

Throw a Christmas party for the 
faculty; 

Suggest to the Administration that it's 
impractical returning to school on 
New Year's Day.

Folk Group is Tops 



Aggies A Success 



The Wayward Three, Delaware Valley 
College's number one folk group, has be- 
come very successful in the past six 
months. This summer under the watch- 
ful eye of their manager, WiUiam Beg- 
enau, they have traveled to the New 
York City area and put on many perform- 
ances for the folk music lovers of Amer- 
ica. On the agenda for this coming month 
is a show for the Neshaminy Manor home, 
the Lansdale School of Business; and ten- 
tative performances at Keystone Jamboree 
and the Toll Gate Tavern. 

Walt Bobb, Don Brockley, and Lee 
Strassburger, cover every facet of folk 
music from the popular songs of today 
back to the traditional songs of the 
1880's. They use two guitars, a banjo, 
and a wash tub bass to get their un- 
equaled sound. These fellows are true 
showmen which is clear by their ability 



to entrance an audience not only with 
their musical talent but alsr wim their 
comical antics which adtl a refreshing 
taste to the entertainment atmosphere. 

The Wayward Three have performed 
for many college, church, service, and 
other club organizabons in the Philadel- 
phia and New York areas. Their musical 
talents have not only been displayed at 
colleges and clubs for they have per- 
formed at "Night Spots" in the Philadel- 
phia area. 

After three years of hard work and ex- 
perience. The Wayward Three has be- 
c;ome one of the most successful folk 
groups in this area.

Pa9« ThrM 



The Furrow Interview— 

Editor's notes The following interview took place in Work Hall Lobby on November 
9, 1967. The guests interviewed were: 

WALTER BOBB: Class of 1968; Student Government Representative, Chairman 
of the Social Committee; majoring in Ornamental Horticulture. 

BOB DEMARCO: Class of 1970; Manager of the Aggie Football team; member 
of the Golf Team. 

FRED COPE: Class of 1968; member of the Golf Team; majoring in Biology. 

AL HART: Class of 1970; majoring in Agronomy. 

LEON HOOVER: Class of 1968; Treasurer of the class; Chairman on the Year- 
book Staff; majoring in Biology. 

The interview was taped and then transcribed. Unfortunately, due to the length 
of the interview, parts of the tape had to be eliminated. The FURROW feels that 
it has transcribed the major issues effectively. Due to the unorthodoxness of the 
spoken language some minor changes have been made to make parts of the interview 
understandable. However, for the most part, the word usage and grammar have not 
been tampered witfi since the FURROW feels that this would take away from the 
quality and effectiveness 



Panel Contrary To Poll 

Feel Govemmenf Is Too Weak 



FURROW: Do you believe Student Govem- 
ment u effective or ineffective at D.V.C.? 

WALT BOBB: I feel the Government is 
very effective. I've been related with other 
ichoob as what the government can do and 
what services they offer in other areas. For the 
situation we have here I think it is very effec- 
tive. 

FURROW: Bob, would you like to say lome- 

*BOB DeMARCO: No, I'd like to wait a 
second. 

FURROW: O.K. Fred, would you like to 
say something? 

FRED COPE: When the Student Govern- 
ment works on its own it is very effective, but 
it also acts as a "yes" man in some depart- 
ments. 

AL HART: I can't see how it can be effec- 
tive when it is dealing with the Administration, 
because it has no power to dictate to the Ad- 
ministration. What ever the Administration 
doesn't care for it can veto without giving any 
reasons for it at all. 

LEON HOOVER: I think they are effective 
in some ways but in others they have to be 
careful about what they say because the Admin- 
istration is in on the meetings and we do have 
to be careful of what we say. 

B. DeMARCO: Well, I've listened to four 
answers and as far as I'm concerned the Student 
Government is only as effective as the Admin- 
istration wants it to be. Now, 1 sat in on a 
Student Government meeting just this week, 
Tuesday night, and I had no active part in the 
Student Government, I iust wanted to see, and 
there was a few things brought up there that 
they couldn't do anything about: it was up to 
the Administration. As far as the Administra- 
tion wants to take it, that's as far as the Student 
Government can go. 

FURROW: Do you all generally agree that 
the Student Government is strongly influenced 
by the Administration's opinions? 

W. BOBB: Well I believe that the function 
of any organization on campus has to have 
some authority from an upper source, and the 
Administration has to be it, so I will say that 
it has to follow Administrative rules, it can't 
^o out on its own, but at the same time I think 
It has as much free will as it can iwssibly have 
as a student organization. 

FURROW: Do you feel that the Student Gov- 
ernment should be given more freedom by the 
Administration to decide on affairs on campus 
no matter how large or small? 

B. DeMARCO: Every organization has to 
have somebody to keep them in check and I 
believe this part is good. I think the Student 
Government can be given a little more leeway 
to make a little more decisions on their own, 
and to sort of . . . well, I think the Student 
Government should be a link between the 
Student body and the Administration and I feel 
that the Student Government here is a lot closer 
to the Administration than it is to the student 
body and I think they can sort of lessen that 
gap if the Adminbtration would let them a 
little. 

F. COPE: I definitely agree, exactly. 

FURROW: Any additional comments to what 
Bob said? 

A. HART: I think Bob made a good point 
in what he said, but the Administration is after 
all the Administration, but the Student Govern- 
ment is supposed to form a link but yet they 
have no bargaining power to change any poli- 
cies, no matter how minor they are, if the ad- 
manistration says no. 



L. HOOVER: They might give the Student 
Government more control over affairs directly 
related to the students, as Bob said the Student 
Government does have to have somebody to 
check them and the Administration is stuck 
with the final responsibility. 

FURROW: Are all classes on campus equally 
represented in Student Government, if not what 
can be done to narrow this gap of representa- 
tion? 

W. BOBB: M you mean equally represented 
by numbers, no there is not equal representa- 
tion of numbers at all, but at the same time, 
if you say equal representation on the amount 
of activity which is taken on by a class or its 
part in the advance of the school, definitely yes. 
As you know, there's a breakdown in the num- 
ber of students per class with the seniors being 
the most and the frosh being the least and if 
you'd notice even in clubs and activities the 
most prominent people are the seniors. Of 
course this might develop the situation where 
there are prominent leaders in the class who 
can't take part as Student Government repre- 
sentatives 'cause there ain't enough seats in 
the senior year. But at the same time, if these 
people would work through the representa- 
tives, which are in government from their class, 
they would be able to voice their opinion. 'Cause 
from the standpoint of class representation I 
think that there is equal representation. 

B. DeMARCO: Each class votes and gets a 
representative and ... if they get a group of 
representatives who are willing to do some work, 
they'll have enough say in Student Government. 
The freshmen, the other night, were introduced 
and they got enough of a say. 

F. COPE: I agree that freshmen should not 
have the representation that the upperdassmen 
do, first of all they have no understanding of 
what's really going on on a college campus, 
and it's their duty to learn and it s the duty 
of the Student Government representatives of 
the freshmen class to inform the other students. 
As for the rest of the classes, I think they 
should he equally represented in numbers in 
the Student Government. 

A. HART: I don't know enough about the 
Administration and the Student Government to 
comment on it with any degree of authority so 
I'll accept what the Student Government repre- 
sentatives say. I feel that the Senior class prob- 
ably has the most amount of representation and 
the freshmen the least not taking into account 
the fact that the seniors have been here longer 
and they know more about what's going on, 
the freshmen just haven't been here that long 
and it just might come out that the fact that 
they're just plain bashful would give them less 
representation. 

L. HOOVER: I think the way they have it 
set up now is good because this way yo»i have 
freshmen who don't know the members of the 
class that good and the ones that feel interested 
make themselves known, they'll get elected and 
as you go on sophomores, juniors and seniors 
will have more members, they'll be able to 
accept more responsibility and have more ex- 
perience in the Student GovemmeBt. 

FURROW: As you all know, the ftudrnt body 
criticizes the school. Administration, and the 
leaders of the classes that there is a poor social 
life on campus. What is your opinion? Do you 
believe that Student Government is mainly re- 
sponsible for this lack of social life on campus 
and should they be responsible for bringing 
social life on campus? 

W. BOBB: Well I happen to be the social 
chairman of Student Government and I def- 
initely feel that there is a lack of social life 



here on campus, and I do feel that it'i the 
Student Government's responsibility to help this 
in all ways possible. I've tried to initiate pro- 
grams this year, and all of them have fallen with 
failure from both areas: lack of student support 
and lack of Administration support, and every- 
body wants to improve the situation. I can't 
really offer a solution to the situation. I just 
wish we could supply more things. The trouble 
falls on what we can do as far as ideas. We 
only have so many members and we ask for 
so much opinion from everybody else in the 
school and I meet with the Interclub Council 
to help me with ideas and I've talked with 
other people on camptu that are providing me 
with ideas and it seems that evertyhing has to 
come from both angles. 

B. DeMARCO: It's my opinion that the only 
objective of a majoritv of the students at this 
institution is to see what kind of a commotion 
they can cause, but now here's a deal where 
you say there's not enough entertainment here, 
there's a certain group of people who really 
bust their humps to get all this extra-curricular 
activity here and here's the majority of the 
student body, they have nothing constructive 
to say as far as anything you could bring up, 
and time and time again people [Walt] have 
asked for suggestions as far as what they could 
do, and the majority of the people around here 
won't come up with a suggestion as to what 
could be done. They are right away going to 
attack what is being done. Tney won t come up 
with anything el.se, they'll just add their miseries 
onto what you have already and I think you 
need a few more people to try to pitch in and 
come up with some new ideas instead of attack- 
ing the ones that are here now. 

F. COPE: Well Bob's got the right idea. 
Social life on campus is rather dull but like he 
said there are only so many ideas and if they 
all fail, you have nothing left. 

B. DeMARCO: Another thing, you're saying 
that social life on the campus is dull. I believe 
the social life on this campus is gonna be as 
dull as the students wanna make it. 

A. HART: I think this is one partkular area 
the Student Government is doing as good a 
job as they possibly can. I think they're limited 
as it is. There's just not that many facilities for 
that much social life. We don't have a union 
building or facilities for a big affair. But I 
don't feel that anyone should complain about 
the job the Student Government is doing, with 
the package for Homecoming. 

L. HOOVER: Student Govenmient can only 
go so far in providing social life on campus 
and the rest is up to tfe students, and like Bob 
said you'll have your workers and you'll have 
your complainers and being this school is small 
you really can't expect anything as big as a 
bigger school can put out as far as social life 
or social activities, concerts or anything like 
that, but Student Government's done a good 
job making it what it is. 

W. BOBB: I would like to say something 
along the same line, I do feel that although 
there is a lack of girls on campus we can't 
blame it directly on this because, I quoted the 
figures before, most of the students have cars 
this year and most of the students are here on 
Saturday for classes, and Friday night could 
develop into a big night around here, social- 
wise, if we could encourage guys to go out and 
bring girls back on campus. But it's when they 
get back here we don't nave anything for them 
to do. It's not that we need a financial thing 
which involves a lot of money, a lot of prepar- 
ation, and a lot of financial risk. We don t have 
to go that deep in debt to develop a good ac- 
tivity. It's just a matter of somebody, even a 
small organization or group, coming up with a 
place to hold an affair or a place to have some 
type of program. There's enough free material, 
there's enough free programs, lecturers and 
movies winch an- available which could offer 
scKiiil activity, there's enough outside interest 
which could be brought on campus, there's 
enough good ideas you could come up with; 
a different party every week, if we could jnst 
encourage the students and the clubs, especially 
the clubs which have srich a minor part once 
Homecoming is over until A-day again, induce 
them to have some type of activity and to get 
them interested in some type of an affair. I 
think the social life here could be increased an 
awful lot, not just the idea that we have to 
shoot for three big weekends a year and put 
everything we have moneywise into them. It's 
fine, it's great but in some ways it's silly, be- 
cause we nave 50 other weekends where nothing 
goes on and this is the thing which really hurts. 



L. HOOVER: Would you meet any opposi- 
tion from the Administration if Student Govern- 
ment would pull off a social activity like a 
weekend or if you had a party some weekend? 

W. BOBB: I think the Administratun is wfll- 
ing to back anything we come up with. They're 
air in favor of this hayride and due to the fact 
that some wires got crossed in planning and 
other things, it fell, and I was sorry to see it 
go and I wish we could get more things like 
this on cainpus. There was a situation where 
not a lot ot money had to be put out, not a 
lot of money had to be invested, but it could 
turn out to be a real nice affair and I met with 
no opposition from the Administration and I 
met with very little opposition from the clubs 
once things got situated. But its because the 
fact that advertising was held to a minimum 
and didn't get out in time the clubs just didn't 
feel they wanted to go ahead with it. As far 
as they're concerned they are willing and glad 
to see an activity take place, because of the 
fact there are so many students here on Friday 
night, so many people that have to stay for that 
Saturday morning class and anything that we 
can come up with to keep the students occupied 
will be one less hairpin out of their hair. 

FURROW: In your opinion how could social 
life on campus be improved? . . . Since there 
are no answers to this, what do you think of 
establishing social fraternities on campus? 

AL HART: I don't think the campus is big 
enough to support fraternities. There s just not 
that many people with that much money that 
could keep a fraternity going. 

F. COPE:' Well first of all this is the wroi^ 
idea, we're certainly big enough to have frater- 
nities, there's i>o problem there, but we're not 
co-ed, what good are fraternities if ymi don't 
have sororities to go with them. 

W. BOBB: Well, I can't cite any examples 
right off the bat but I know of some schools 
that have no girls on campus that have fra- 
ternities . . . 

L. HOOVER: Well, after four years being 
here and having never been in a fraternity, I 
wouldn't have anything to compare it with but 
it seems it might add to the social life of the 
campus, if you could get them it might tie the 
students together more, and bring them out for 
tome activities, parties, or something lik«- this, 
but I would also think that, well, the Adminis- 
tration is against it, and as far as patries go on 
campus, I think they'd meet opposition. 

W. BOBB: I don't think as a campus we 
really need frats. I know that is an outright 
statement to make but the functien of a trat 
is to unite some students together . ■ especially 
on the big campuses where there's so many stu- 
dents you just become a numbes. The frat 
serves the function of uniting •tudents together 
in a smaller group and acquamtii^l (hem with 
one aiwther. Here your not a Dumber, as far 
as I'm concerned, and you can develop yourself 
anyway you want to. The social end of it, I 
think, is the only thing that a frat would do. 
It would offer you an off-campus place to hold 
a booze party and if .that's what you want to 
have— an organized booze party, yoii can or- 
ganize one yourself without having the dues 
and other things that go along with frats. I 
think the social life can be improved much 
better with just the use of the organizations on 
campus which are active. We don't have to 
create new ones. The clubs [major] are the big- 
gest active organizations on campus and I feel 
they are not active enough. These are also 
service clubs which, if you got more students 
interested, which could develop the social life. 

FURROW: In other words you definitely feel 
that frats would iK>t improve the social life of 
the campus. 

W. BOBB: No, really 1 don't feel they would 
because we haven't dieveloped what we have 
here to the fullest of our advantage. 

B. DeMARCO: Frats are going to be as good 
as the student body makes them, and I believe, 
like everything else on campus, the majority of 
the student body is just interested in leaving 
this place and coming back on Monday morn- 
ing. Now there's been a few times this year, 
during the foobtall season it happened, where 
Friday night there's been an activity and Sat- 
urday we had a big ball game, there was no- 
body here Friday night. 

FURROW: Do you feel Student Government 
should have power to control the clubs and 
activities on campus, or how much power over

SOME COLD FACTS 



Student Government efiFectiveness? In this day and age of constant 
student revolt against Administrative policies, we still find the don't 
care students, those who criticize for the sake of criticizing, and the 
students that aiticize without any knowledge of the operation of the 
Student Government. 

Unfortunately many students fail to take an interest in their govern- 
ment; they fail to realize that with their support the Student Government 
could become an efiFective policy maker. Students fail to learn how to 
be efiFective in their methocls of attaining the goals they seek. 

Due to this apathy of students, the very apathy which students criticize 
when they see examples of it, there are people in the Student Govern- 
ment who do not do their part, members who do not belong in the 
Student Government. When people talk about the Student Government, 
they can blame no one but their apathetic selves. 

It is time that students start to take an interest; it's time they make 
their representatives work. It is time they support the Student Govern- 
ment in all ways, not only in the taking sense out the giving sense. 

Too many students expect the Student Government to get power 
without the government exerting itself in the process. 

TTie situation should be looked at objectively, students should put

Tfce Food 

an endless complaint 

I^laware Valley College 
Doylestown, Penna. 

Mr. William Edmunds, Editor 
Delaware Valley College 
Doylestown, Penna. 18901 

Dear Mr. Edmunds, 

This may be taken, at first, to be just 
another thoughtless criticism of the lood 
served in our dining hall. But, I hope, it 
is taken as a constructive criticism, which 
is the intent behind my writing. 

May I start by saying that it is not as 
much the quality of the food, which is 
bad, but the way it is prepared. I realize 
the difficulty in preparing food for such 
a large number and have taken this into 
consideration. 

I would like to suggest to the dining 
hall staff that they take a little more care 
and time in preparing the food we eat. 
When a piece of chicken, or whatever, is 
served and I must blot the excess grease 
off with two or three napkins before I 
can, or should I say will, eat it, I think 
this shows lack of preparation. 

As in anything we do, time and effort 
must be employed. Perhaps if a little 
more time and effort were used in the 
kitchens, the food would be more ap- 
petizing in the dining room. 

Thank you for giving me the opportu- 
nity to express my views. 

Respectively, 
(Signed) 
William J. Pellett 



Letter to the Editor 
Parade Parody 

Dear Editor, 

"This is WaDy Blue of station ZBUX 
reporting to you from the practice foot- 
ball field of D.V.C. in Doylestown. We 
are standing here in the cold, crisp No- 
vember air where this year's Homecoming 
parade is assembling. It looks like— Yes, 
its going to be a good one this year with 
lots of bands, cars, floats and people on 
hand. The floats draw particular atten- 
tion because I believe I nave never seen 
better. TheM monstrous works of art are 
designed and assambled by each par- 
ticular maj(M- club on campus. It's ap- 
parent that many long man-hours have 
Kone into the creation of some of the 
floats and competition should be close. 

"Let's see if we can get to talk to one 
of their presidents in all the hustle and 
bustle of last minute preparations." 

"Yes— Wiat is your name?" 



themselves on the Administration's side of the fence. How many students 
would give power to a Student Government that does not carry out 
eflFectively the power it already has? 

For example, work clothes are illegal in classes and the Dining Hall. 
This is a valid rule that has many more points in its favor than against 
it. The jurisdiction of clothing regulations is under the Student Govern- 
ment, but for fear of becoming unpopular there are vctv few Student 
Government members who will hand out a summons for this dress regu- 
lation infraction. This is not the only example of ineffectiveness by the 
Student Government. However, these things only lessen the possibility 
of the Student Government receiving a bigger voice. 

But as there are inefficiencies in the Student Government, there are 
inefficiencies in the Administration. But this, is not the topic of interest 
in this editorial. 

These problems can be overcome by the Student Government, and 
when these problems are overcome, which they had better be, the Stu- 
dent Government will be able to demand more say. This can only come 
about through support by the student body. The Student Government 
has only what it has to work with in personnel, and the lackadaisical 
people had better shape up or be discarded from the organization. The 
students must take a mature, level headed attitude and unite their power 
through the Student Government, the only official spokesman for the 
student body. 




"Harry Zoos." 

"And what club do you represent?" 

"E)rinking Society." 

"Did you design this beautiful float?" 

"Oh nol It was designed by the club." 

"Please explain something about your 
float? How did you get the idea, and 
what are you trying to show?" 

"Basically we have built a float to de- 
pict U.S.A., which is this year's theme. 
The theme is given to us before the be- 
ginning of the year by the Interclub 
Council. Although we didn't follow this 
year's theme exactly, we prepared a long 
description of the float, which when read 
to the judges uses Bull to tie the theme 
and float together. Not bad — Ha! The 
float is completely built of chicken wire 
and stuffed with "all purpose" paper, 
and although I can't say for sure there 
are about 15,000,000 square inches of 
toilet paper used — enough to go around 



Doylestown twice. A square mile of 
chicken wire with 59,000 Ib./sq. inch of 
human pressure to push in each piece. 
Because it's not possiole to build a clean, 
neat float from the materials unless a 
^eat amount of time is spent, we put 
ours together in a night and it's not too 
bad. We will win if they judge us on the 
amount of toilet pai)er used." 

"Thank you very much. I see that the 
parade is leaving campus on its way 
through Doylestown, so let's switch to 
Joe's Hotel, our downtown vantage 
IK)int." 

"Thank you Wally. This is John Snow 
reporting live from the roof of Joe's 
Hotel. The first floats have just come 
into focus and the streets are just packed 
with students, alumni, and townfolks. 
The latest estimate has just been made

Letter to the Editor 

Class of '68 
Complimented 

D.V.C. 

November 14, 1967 

Dear Editor, 

The class of '68 deserves recognition 
for its accomplishments as compared with 
any of the other classes. At me top of 
the list is the Furrow, which has never 
been this good before, and the improve- 
ment is due to the efforts of the editor, 
a senior. Next, consi^r Student Govern- 
ment which has dared in do things this 
year that have never been done before, 
due largely to the efforts of the senior 
representatives. The clubs, under the 
leadership of sembr presidents are more 
active and are doing more things than 
before, and there is doubt among these 
leaders that there will be anyone com- 
petent to follow them since there is little 
support from the lower classmen of the 
activities, except for a few loyal sup- 
porters. Even some of the committees 
formed and headed by juniors or sopho- 
mores are examples of the type of leader- 
ship that doesn t get things done. 

An indication of the quality of a class 
might be the amount of class spirit dis- 
played by the members, but the one good 
indicator we used to have is now off lim- 
its, the water tower, which used to al- 
ways sport a large '68 except for a few 
short days when some other class got 
enough spirit together to attempt to show 
the rest of the campus they were really 
here and not just an idea. 

Sincerely, 
(Signed) 

A member of the 
Class of '68

"Oh yes! Here is our twenty page book

values and vast amounts of other essential 
material; all helpful in determining the 
winning float." 

"Just what are some of the things 
which make a good float?" 

"Well it must stick very close to the 
theme, make an over-all neat appearance, 
and the color should be vivid. Oops! I 
almost forgot the most important objective 
—seeing how much "out house" paper 
one can compress and use on the noat."

THE FURROW 



AS I SEE IT -(Continued) 

As I See It, the S. G. hierarchy is pretty lenient. I thought that they 
were supposed to enforce the rules they enact. Violation: eating during 
movie on Friday the tenth, in attendance, S. Wood; reprimand, none! 

As I See It, it's nic* to be reassured that your clothing is washed 
thoroughly but when it is returned in a state of motheaten apathy it's 
time for a change. P.S., M. M. did you know that rinsing removes soap? 

As I See It, the spice and condiments table in the cafeteria is too 
crowded. How about a spare table? Or even better, a counter built along 
one wall. 

As I See it, I don't care who sponsors the werstling team. NO ONE, 
but NO ONE should have his team practice running up and down the 
corridor of a dormitory, to the tune of a sour whistle, even if it is Coach 
Graver. Mr. Linta, could you please do something about this bothersome 
nuisance? 

As I See It, the Milies have the wrong attitude to work on this campus. 
No matter what is said, they should remain aloof and do their job. When 
a hear a Milie say "I don't care, it wasn't my car," I begin to wonder 
about the validity of some of the accusations put forth against the 
security force. 

As I See It, Dear Mr. R. F. of S. G. The reason I choose to remain 
anonymous is because of the information I "hear". If someone knew that 
his comments were going into the paper he would clam-up. Do you voice 
ALL your disapproval? I wouldn't expect vou to, nor anyone else. I am 
not using my anonymity as a guise to insult people, but as criticism and 
to voice popular opinion. 




All in Favor of the Administrations Proposal 



PARODY--(Continued) 

what is your reason?" 

"Well the bright spotlights used to 
illuminate the floats as they pass the 
judges' stand is very hard on the eyes." 

"Thank you judge." 

"The parade is smoothly proceding in 
front of the judges' stand, and the judges 
are busily marking their scorecards. 
There seems to be some floats missing. 
Let's swatch back to the D.V.C. campus 
and see if anything has been reported on 
the missing floats. Come in Wally." 

"I'm now at the scene of the bonfire 
and quite a crowd has been gathering. 
There seems to be some talk here also 
about several floats not making it through 
town. Early reports indicate that for 
best results in the parade competition 
snails should have been used to pull the 
floats, or maybe a horse." 



"Listeners — the band has been putting 
forth a spectacular sound of music. Wait, 
the band has just been cut off — Yes, the 
silhouette of a short jolly man is ap- 
proaching the podium — The following 
is another 'live' broadcast of ZBUX di- 
rectly from the bonfire at D.V.C." 

'Students — the long awaited decision 
has been reached. The "lost" floats will 
not, I repeat will not be disqualified, but 
will be judged at 11:00 A.M. tomorrow 
morning. I would like to take this op- 
portunity to thank " 

"With this speech a large roar rose 
from the crowd, and now they are eagerly 
dispersing, and are looking forward to 
the grand arrival of the judges on Home- 
coming Day 1967. 

"Station ZBUX now leaves the air, 

and will resume broadcast"

INTERVIEW-(Contlnued) 

students do you feel the Student Government 
should have? 

W. BOBB: Let me ask you a question, when 
you say power, what do you mean by that? 

FURROW: Yes and no power, or how much 
authority should they have? 

W. BOBB: If you mean the Student Govern- 
ment should be a little administration to the 
clubs, I don't see that at all. The club is an 
independent activity which takes place here on 
campus and I don't think we should dictate 
what the club has to do or what the respon- 
sibilities of the club are. We do have an or- 
ganization that works through the Student Gov- 
ernment, the Interclub Council which brings 
club members together and tries to unite them 
so that each club isn't working independently 
of one another and we all know what the other 
clubs are doing, and we all know what the 
purposes and ideas of the other clubs are. True 
we do review their constitution but I don't see 
where that is a dictation of power from the 
Student Government so if it means wc have to 
rule them with an iron hand this is absolutely 
silly and we don't do it, and I don't see that 
we should or that we should have any part in 
what the club does and what it's function is. 

DeMARCO: Yeh! I agree with Walt, whole- 
heartedly. You have enough dictators in this 
school to begin with. There's no sense making 
the clubs fall under somebody else's iron hand. 
They have the Interclub Council to work with 
the government. I think they can get along fine 
with just the way they are. 

F. COPE: Well, Walt Bobb's right. Student 
Government shouldn't have anything to say 
about the campus. I mean, the clubs already 
have to answer to the Administration. 

A. HART: Well the only thmg I can see is 
that the Student Government can serve as a 
link between the Administration and the club. 
That's the only control I think it should have 
over them at all. 

L. HOOVER: I think the question that was 
asked was if the club wants to get an activity 
on campus should it go to the Administration 
or the Student Government for approval. Either 
way it's going to be approved or disapproved 
by the Administration. 

WALT BOBB: Well an activity taking place 
on campus I would say has to be approved by 
the Student Government but I have never known 
of an activity which has been turned down in 
the years I've been associated with the Student 
Government. 

FURROW: How do you feel the Student 
Government has helped campus activity this 
year? 

F. COPE: I feel that the busses to the away 



games are about the best thing the Student 
Government has ever done and also the movies 
on Friday nights. As for the movies, one sug- 
gestion would be to move them to Saturday 
nights. 

L. HOOVER: I think the Student Govern- 
ment package deals we had helped to get the 
students to attend the weekend activities. 

A. HART: I don't know if the Student Gov- 
ernment has anything to do with arranging 
housing for dates, but I think it's a good thing. 

FURROW: Do you feel your Student Gov- 
ernment Representatives are representing you 
efiFectively? 

B. DeMARCO: Sure, if they're not represent- 
ing you, you have the means to get them out 
ol office and get somebody that will represent 
you. I think they are all doing a great k>D. 

F. COPE: No comment. 

A. HART: I know that everything that I've 
suggested to my Student Government repre- 
sentative, no matter how ridiculous it might 
have seemed, he brought it up ir a meeting. 
And many times he's come back to me and 
told me it hasn't even been coiutdercd but at 
best he's doing the job he was i^.-ted to do. 

L. HOOVER: I agree, I think (hey are going 
a good job. 

FURROW: How do you feel about the eflFec- 
tiveness of the Student Court? 

F. COPE: There's a general i^nion on cam- 
pus that the Student Court » « big farce, and 
1 think this opinion is wrong, definitely wrong. 
Nobody is summoned to court unless thev've 
been caught doing somcthmg. It's not tnere 
to try long cases, it's there to reprimand those 
who have been caught doing something. In- 
stead of leaving it up to the Administration. 

A. HART: If this is the case then I can't 
see the purpose of having a court. There's no 
use in having a judge or a person available to 
you to argue your case. 

FURROW; Al. do you feel the court would 
consider your case if you entered a plea ol not 
guilty? 

A. HART: I think so, I know of a case 
where a couple of fellows came back late and 
tried to get into the dining hall, I think it was 
from one of the bams, and they were sum- 
moned to Student Court for it. They were found 
not guilty. They had to eat, they had paid for 
it. 

L. HOOVER: I think the Student Court 
needs the backing of the Administration, be- 
cause if it didn't have it it wouldn't be able 
to enforce any fines. Then people would just 
take it as a joke. 

FURROW: Gentlemen, we have found this 
interview most interesting. The FURROW wishes 
to extend its thanks to you for giving us your 
valuable time.

The Infirmary 

The College Health Service is in full swing with its eighth annual 
"Blood Donors' Clinic." On December 11, 1^7, "D" day arrives. We 
have a mighty big job to do and it's up to us Aggies to do it. If you are 
under 21 years of age, you must have your parents' consent before you 
can participate. Be sure to remind your parents that the green release 
slip that they received should be returned by November 29, 1967. You 
are doing yourself a favor by making that small sacrifice; and by giving 
something you'll never miss, you can help your fellow man. Remember, 
besides providing blood for yourself, your fellow Aggies, and your faculty; 
your parents, and your brothers and sisters ( unmarried ) are also included 
in the coverage. Everyone should know his blood type; and if you don't, 
now is a good opportunity to find out. This is also a good chance to show 
what your class is made of; whether you are real Aggies or not. You get 
a good feeling knowing that if you had an accident and needed blood 
it would be there. But in order for it to be there, somoene has to donate 
it. The A.P.O. is this year's coordinating club for the blood bank. Signed 
release slips should be returned to either your blood bank representative, 
the infirmary or Mr. Linta. On December 11, at 9 o'clock, our school 
spirit will be tested. Will it withstand the test? YES ! ! ! !

Basketball 
Team Sharp 
In Scrimmage 

The basketball team traveled to West 
Chester State College on Saturday morn- 
ing, November 18th for their first of three 
scheduled scrimmages in preparation for 
the seasons' opener at Drexel on Decem- 
ber 2nd. 

After a workout that consisted of 3K 
regulation halves, the Aggies demon- 
strated some fine shooting, tough re- 
bounding, and aggressive play in win- 
ning by a score of 154-128. The most 
impressive aspect concerning D.V.C.'s 
showing was their minimal number of 
turnovers: only 8 in 70 minutes of play. 

Coach John Silan commented after the 
scrimmage that "the progress of the team 
is ahead of last years at this stage, and 
that as soon as we cut down on a few 
mental errors here and there we should 
be alright."

which consequently slowed the runners' 
times. Sherman Latchaw continued his 
consistent running by leading the Aggies; 
he placed third behind two Susquehanna

The most recent voting poll on the Lambert Bowl shows D.V.C. in 
the number seven position. For you that have been following this poll, 
D.V.C. has come from an honorable mention to number seven in a 
matter of six weeks. In the number two position are 
the Wilkes Colonels. Speculation is high as to what the 
voting would have been if we had beaten Wilkes, but 
.... leading the Lambert Bowl voting is Wagner of 
Staten Island .... In the past two weeks, several of 
our football players made mentions on the E.C.A.C. 
Division III Weekly All-East football teams. Listed 
for the week of November 4th were Don Stump, John 
Nice, Pat Day, and Ron Timko. Making the team for 
the week of November Uth were Joe Franchella, Dennis 
Dobrowolski, Pat Day, Gene Wallace .... According 
to the Nat. Collegiate Sports Service's OfiBcial Football 
Statistics for College Division Individual Leaders for 
the week of November Uth, Floyd Ritter was #13 in 
the nation in punting .... In the Parent's Day game, 
Pat Day intercepted 3 passes and broke Bob Frantz's 
record of 13 interceptions in a season by one .... 
Captain Richard Kelly, Dennis Dobrowolski, Michael Trazzera, Floyd 
Ritter and Toe Franchella all played tremendous games in their final 
regularly scheduled game. These boys contributed their all to help the 
Aggies wind up with a 6 and 2 season. These boys are sure to be missed 
next year .... It was heard in the locker room, as a passing remark of 
one of the coaches, that the D.V.C. basketball team may, and I stress 
the word may, play in the Palestra this year. Seems to be the big year 

for athletics at D.V.C For those of you that are interested in seeing 

the Aggie Hoopsters in action before their opening game, to be played 
at Drexel on December 2nd, following is a fist of scheduled exhibition 
games: Nov. 18th away at West Chester, Nov. 21 away at Franklin and 
Marshall, Nov. 27 away at Lehigh .... The Aggie harriers finished their 
season by losing a tough meet to Lebanon Valley 31 to 26. Finishing first 
was Sherm Latchaw who has been a consistent first place finisher through- 
out the season. Sherm still has another year to go .... As of last week 
it became official that Lou Coppens, Class of 1^, was made an official 
member of the 1964 All-American Cross Country Team. If I'm not mis- 
taken, this is D.V.C.'s first All-American.

The Tumult nnd the Shouting 



76, 92, 76etitage 



Army-Navy, USC-UCLA, St. Joe-Villanova, Penn St.-Pitt, and PMC- 
Kings Pt. What do the above mean? Tradition and a annual rival! These 
things are surely missing from the life of every DVC student. Rivals are 
difRcult to find and take years to build. Many times they are not planned, 
but seem to occur naturally. We have been playing football at DVC for 
twenty years and don't have any true rivals. Wilkes is slowly becoming 
a football rival, but would it last if Wilkes came up with a mediocre 
team? 

Rival games are very important to the opposing teams and schools, 
no matter what their previous records for that season. I would like to 
see added emphasis put on all our meetings with Wilkes, not only in 
football but in basketball, wrestling, and baseball. I feel that DVC 
needs a true rival, and around a good rivally, tradition can be built. Let's 
start working now to make all encounters with Wilkes very important 
occasions on our campus. They won't become rivals overnight and it will 
take a great deal of work, but someday, if we are lucky, no matter how 
good either team is that particular year, the Wilkes-DVC encounters will 
mean something a little special in the life of each DVC student. 

Tradition can mean many things on a college campus; rivals. Home- 
coming Weekend, certain fraternity or club functions, or maybe just 
painting some old building or monument each year. At DVC there is no 
such thing as tradition. Uriless, perhaps, maybe it's going into Ed's Diner! 
Homecoming Weekend is a big event, but we certainly can't say it has 
tradition. Unfortunately our social organizations aren't the type that build 
tradition. Customs are a form of tradition, but each year they take on a 
new look and I doubt whether the Freshmen of 1960 would recognize 
what the Freshmen of 1967 went through. 

The only tradition we did have was painting our class year on the 
water tower. But now the administration has had the tower painted and 
this limited tradition has disappeared. This year's Freshmen class was 
the first not to put their year (71) on the tower. I feel DVC needs some 
type of tradition, even if it's only painting an old water tower. The newly 
painted tower, no doubt, looks better to visitors who come on our campus, 
but to those of us who are here every day it was something to look for- 
ward to: seeing the tower get its new coat of slopped-on paint each year. 
This tradition has left us but the only way any new traditions can develop 
on any college campus is for the students themselves to establish them. 

Aggie Action: Bill Cottrell led Mel Farr over the goal line for a Lion's 
score a couple weeks ago . . . Coach Craver gets the quote of the week 
when talking about this year's Seniors in the Bulletin, "They took beatings 
as frosh and sophomores that would cause most boys to give up the 
game," a fine compliment to five fine football players . . . See some 
people on campus can't take criticism when it hits the areas in which 
they are responsbile.

APO Rapped By S.G. Action 



January 9 — During a closed door meeting of the Student Government the 
following action was taken against the Alpha Phi Omega organization: 

1 ) All future activities of the Alpha Phi Omega will be banned until further 
notice, with the exception of the election of new officers. 
2) The election of the new officers 



will be subject to approval by the Student 
Government. 

3) Pending a favorable re-evaluation 
under the new officers, including reaffir- 
mation of principles and functions, that 
Alpha Phi Omega be allowed to carry 
on regular activities with the exception 
of the "Sweethearts Dance" of February 
17, 1968. 

4) The National Office of Alpha Phi 
Omega be notified concerning the inci- 
dent, and informed that neither the 
students nor Administration of Delaware 
Valley College condone such activities. 

The actions stem from an alledged 
party sponsored bv an officer of the 
organization. Alcohol was alledgedly 
served during this party which was es- 
tablished to be a college function. 

An investigation was conducted by a 
Student Government Committee consist- 
ing of Stephen Wood, representing the 
Interclub council, William Dunscombe, 
representing Student Court, and Wayne 
Winner, Student Government President. 



guhar ,2nd Vice President; Nicholas Se- 
meniuk, an active member; Andy Nar- 
delli, and James Light both pledges. 

It was established by the committee 
that: 

1) Over 50% of the organization's 
members knew of the alledged party; • 

2) Only APO members attended; 

3) Fraternal activities were empha- 
sized; 

4) Some money was asked from mem- 
bers not attending the alledged party. 

The President stated that he was not 
aware that the party was going on. Under 
the structure of the organization the 
pledges met separately from the active 
members. The 2nd Vice President pre- 
sides over the pledges. 

The proceedings of the meeting went 
as follows: 

The above facts were presented to 
the Student Government by Stephen 
Wood. David Williams proposed all so- 
cial events of the organization be dis- 



Those questioned in the hearing were continued until 8 weeks following the 
Tom Elam, APO President; Balph Far- election of new officers at which time 



the APO would be reconsidered by 
Student Government. Service activities 
would not be affected. The proposal was 
seconded and heatedly discussed. The 
vote on the proposal was 8 to 8 with 2 
members abstaining. The SG President 
broke the tie by voting against the pro- 
posal. 

The investigating committee then sub- 
mitted their proposal which was as fol- 
lows: All events be discontinued with 
the exception of the "Sweethearts Dance" 
until further notice by the SG. This pro- 
posal stemmed from a question under 
SG authority to cancel the dance, which 
was to be an affair invohing other APO 
chapters from area colleges to be held 
in the new David Levin Dining Hall. 
At an earlier meeting SG was denied 
the right to govern the affair. The pro- 
posal was defeated by a sizeable ma- 
jority. 

The third proposal was presented by 
the FURROW. It called for: 

1) Banning all activities of the organi- 
zation until further notice, except for 
the election of new officers, 

2) Student Government approval of 
the new officer selections, 

3) Re-evaluation of the club under the 
new officers and allowing the APO tc 



carry on service activities only. The 
"Sweethearts Dance" would not be sane* 
tioned by the SG. 

The proposal was reworked and the re- 
sult was the adopted proposal. It was 
passed unanimously. During the discus- 
sion of the proposal several members 
expressed that they felt all the activities 
of campus organizations came under the 
jurisdiction of the Student Government. 

The following statement was released 
by the SG President the following after- 
noon, "From the facts presented I feel 
the Student Government's decision was 
a just one. I realize this action has been 
received with mixed feelings and that 
many of the club representatives were 
not involved. However, it is up to the 
officers of organizations to see to it that 
the members do not get out of line. Re- 
gretfully, many times those who are not 
directly involved must pay as has hap- 
pened in this action taken on the APO." 

The APO President also released a 
statement which follows: "It is unfortu- 
nate it happened. Although all officers 
weren't involved, we will elect new offi- 
cers the first on second week in Febru- 
ary and try to bring our name back to 
where it was before this incident hap- 
pened."

DELAWARE VALLEY COLLEGE of Sclonce and Agricultura 



January 23, 1968 



Delaware Valley College was well rep- 
resented at the Pennsylvania Livestock 
Exposition by four head of livestock bred 
and raised here on the college farm. This 
is the second time the Animal Science 
department has participated in any other 
livestock show other than the Pennsyl- 
vania Farm Show. 

At the Pennsylvania Livestock Exposi- 
tion the college exhibited two steers, 
a Jr. yearhng and a Sr. yearling. The 
Jr. yearling placed third in a tough 
class, and the Sr. yearling placed first 
in his class and went on to be named 
Reserve Champion Angus Steer (see above 
picture). The two heifers also did well 
with the Two Year Old standing second 
in her class and the Jr. Yearhng placing 
first in class and going on to be named 
Grand Champion Angus Female (see 
above picture).

New Offices Supersede 
Student Canteen Project 

It was disclosed in Student Government at its January tenth meeting that a 
campus canteen was being considered. Dean Fulcoly was in contact with the owner 
of the now defunct Village Kitchen in Doylestown. The owner was willing to offer 
all of his equipment to the college for

a fraction of its original cost, but he 
could keep this offer open for a certain 
length of time only. Because of President 
Work's absence from the campus, ap- 
proval could not be procured. The res- 
taurant owner decided to extend the 
deadline till Monday, January 15th, at 
which time it was hoped that the Presi- 
dent would be back. At this time, the 
proposal is still awaiting action by the 
President, but it is expected that word 
of approval or rejection will be released 
soon. Dean Fulcoly noted that the equip- 
ment owner would not further extend 
his deadline but that this did not neces- 
sarily mean that the equipment had 
gone down the drain. The Dean said that 
the cost of the equipment was not the 
major problem but that the site for such 
a unit was. In the eyes of the Student 
Government, the best location would 



January 12- A particular sequence of 
events has led to a long drawnout in- 
vestigation by campus officials and lo- 
cal fire authorities. Early in December 
some flammable object was placed on 
the door of a third floor Ulman Hall 
resident and ignited. The resulting dam- 
age was minor scorching. Several weeks 
later a second incident took place in 
which a lit cigarette was allegedly de- 
posited in a waste receptacle which sub- 
sequently caught fire. Officials are pro- 
ceeding along the theory that both in- 
cidents are the work of an arsonist. Resi- 
dents were summoned individually to a 
meeting room where they were cross- 
examined by numerous officials. 

At this time the administration chooses 



to make no statement on the incidents. 
No suspects have been named. 

January 17— The administration has re- 
leased a statement concerning the third 
floor Ulman fires. Eight students have 
been questioned about the particular in- 
cidents in question. Allegedly the sec- 
ond fire stemmed from an inadvertent- 
ly discarded piece of smoldering trash. 
The trash receptacle subsequently caught 
fire. The stories were mixed as to actual 
attempts to put it out. Authorities have 
also expressed concern over carelessly 
discarded lit cigarettes. 

Proceedings in the December 8 false 
alarm investigation are still in progress. 
There is no statement from the ad- 
ministration at the present time.

probably be the old dining hall in Lasker 
Hall. But it was brought out at the meet- 
ing that this site has been alloted for 
office space, and that in the near future 
the whole Lasker Hall Complex could 
become the main administration building. 
Also discussed was a Five Year Building 
Plan which has provisions in it for a 
Student Union Building. It was stated 
that this would be an excellent place to 
put a canteen and that it would be 
silly to put a canteen in Lasker Hall if 
in a few years they would have to rip 
it out again. Two of the other locations 
considered were the basement of Lasker 
Hall and the old Farm Machinery Build- 
ing. 

CONCERT PROPOSAL 
SHELVED 

At the January tenth meeting of the 
Student Government, Walter Bobb, its 
treasurer, proposed that a concert be 
staged by tnem in the Spring. The event 
would have probably been slated for 
April and could have cost the Student 
Government as much as $2,500 if it had 
been adopted. Two of the groups that 
were considered as possible candidates 
for the event were 'The Mitchell Trio 
and The Three Freshmen. It was men- 
tioned that both of these groups had re- 
cently released new records and could 
have probably been available for such 
a concert. TTie Mitchell Trio, it was 
explained, was formerly called 'The Chad 
Mitchell Trio which was very popular a 
few years ago. No action was taken on 
the proposal and it was shelved. Ac- 
cording to Bobb, it probably will not be 
brought up again unless interest warrants 
it.

POLL PREVIEW CALLS 
FOR GREATER STUDENT 
PARTICIPATION 

In order for you to have an op- 
portunity to think about the ques- 
tions for the next poll they will be 
presented in this issue. The poll- 
takers will be around sometime be- 
fore the next issue goes to press. 
We have too small a staff to ques- 
tion everybody. Therefore, if you 
feel strongly about any question 
you may submit your opinion on a 
piece of paper to anyone on the 
staff. 

1. Do you go out in the evenings 
for coffee and/or a snack? If so, do 
you go to Newton's, Ed's, NBI, 
Farm House or some other place? 

2. Do you feel there should be 
a canteen on campus? 

3. Would a canteen be success- 
ful? That is, would it be used by the 
students, not only during the week 
but as a place to go after a date on 
weekends? 

4. Would a canteen detract from 
or add to your study time? 

5. Would you take your girl to

students there weren't excessively 
rowdy? 




Aggies Show 

Spirit In 
Blood Bank 

This year marked the first time in tfie 
program's history that two blood bank 
units were needed to handle the influx 
of donors. Everytiiing went fairly smooth 
with only 6 or 7 fainting. Donors were 
under the watchful eyes of Dr. Johanna 
Laise Wagner a 17 year veteran who 
was ever ready to step in in the event 
of any problem. This year's co-ordinating 
club was the A. P. O. which, according 
to its president Tom Elam, had almost 
100*% participation in assisting the do- 
nors. The Circle K organization was also 
there in strength to assist in the huge 
undertaking. The Southeastern Pennsyl- 
vania Chapter of the American Red 
Cross, Bucks County Branch, was Co- 
chairman of the blood bank. On hand 
were 13 nurses and 21 volunteers to 
make the process go as quickly and as 
smoothly as possible. Over 254 people 
participated with 24 being rejected due 
to colds, etc. The two blood bank units 
combined had a total capacity of 230 
pints and we filled every pint they had. 
Our quota this year was 200 pints and 
we topped this by 30 plus pints. The 
Aggie spirit has come through again to 
make it 8 in a row at D. V. C. 



Science Society 
Plans Trip 

On Wednesday, December 13, 1967, 
the Science Society held nominations for 
the offices of President, Vice-President, 
Secretary, and Treasurer for the term of 
1968/1969. On January 10, 1968, final 
nominations and elections will be held 
and the newly elected officers of the 
Society will assume their respective po- 
sitions immediately following the close 
of the meeting. 

The present administration of the So- 
ciety has submitted application to the 
American Institute of Biological Sciences 
for review, to qualify for having a stu- 
dent chapter of this national organiza- 
tion on the campus of Delaware Valley 
College. By having such an organization 
on campus the Society feels that it would 
further strengthen recognition of Dela- 
ware Valley College as being not only 
known for the agricultural sciences, but 
also its role in biological and chemical 
education. A student chapter of AIBS 
would be separate from the Science So- 
ciety. 

Shortly after the beginning of the 
second semester the Society plans to have 
its annual trip. This year plans are being 
made for a return trip to Washington, 
D.C. Shortly following the trip the an- 
nual banquet will be held. This year 
the banquet will be held at the CoUege- 
ville Inn, CoUegeville, Pennsylvania. 



F. I. SPEAKERS BOAST 
OF $$ OPPORTUNITIES 

The Food Industry Club meeting of 
January 11, 1968, saw the election of the 
new '68-'69 officers. The sophomore class 
came through very strongly with major 
nominations. The new officere of the 
Food Industry Club are President, Gary 
Filko; Vice President, Gary Eberhart; 
Secretary, Eric McMillan; Treasurer, 
Dave Evans; Intramural Representative, 
Ron Koenig; Publications, Stan Michal- 
ski. 

Other events of the night covered the 
opportunities in the Food Industry Field. 
On the subject two former Delaware 
Valley College graduates, Mr. Dennis 
Gural and Mr. Edward Wood, gave an 
informative talk on the development of 
the field, the specific jobs open in it and 
their own experience in acquiring em- 
ployment and working their way up 
into management positions. One impor- 
tant note was their commendation of 
the excellent placement system of Dela- 
ware Valley College. 

Dr. Turner wished the new officers 
success in the coming semester and com- 
mended the retiring officers for their 
good job. 




Horticultural Society to 
Hold Annual Banquet 



TTie Horticultiu^ Society will have its 
annual banquet on February 21, 1968. 
This year, it will be held at the CoUege- 
ville Inn in CoUegeville, Penna. They 
have invited memben of the faculty and 
plan to have a guest speaker, Mr. Henry 
Nixon, who works in the Department 
of Plant Industry from the Pennsylvania 
Department of Agriculture. 

The Hort Society hopes to recognize

TTie Contemporary Club looks forward, 
and sees ahead an exciting and reward- 
ing new year. Under the direction of 
Resident Richard Scott the club hopes 
to add new dimension to the social life 
at D. V. C. in '68. Following last year's 
many successes we will present a series 
of guest speakers which will begin with 
the new semester. Among the many who 
will be heard is Mr. Martin Caplan of 
the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board 
presenting a discussion on the law and 
drinking, and the possibilities of a low- 
ered minimum drinking age in this state, 
plus other related topics. Speakers in 
this series hopefully wifl represent a wide 
range of views and opinions some of 
which could be considered controversial. 
An increased interest in our Faculty- 
Student Chess Meet has prompted a plan 
calling for more of these evenings to 
be staged periodically. Among those 
things still in the planning stage are 
future trips, 'A' Day, the Homecoming 
Concert and much, much more. Bach 
to Baez, Macbeth to Mame, from the 
mundane to the controversial, from yes- 
terday to tomorrow, that's the Contem- 
porary Club. 



Awards 



Continued 

Maryland, among stiffer competition the 
two steers placed as follows: tne Jr. year- 
ling was sixth, the Sr. yearling was first. 
The heifers also did well with the Two 
Year Old placing third and the Jr. year- 
ling placing seventii. This being our last 
show of the season, the steers were 
sold: one came back to Pennsylvania 
with Mr. Fred Frye of Quarryville who 
shipped the steer to the International 
Livestock Exposition at Chicago, 111. 
There, among the toughest competition 
in the United States, he placed 15th in 
a class of 65 steers. Mr. Frye doesn't 
plan on stopping here however, when 
asked by the judging team he stated 
that he would take him to Denver, Colo- 
rado. 

These achievements are a credit to 
Dr. Pelle and the management of farm 
#3. Accompanying the animals through 
the two shows were Mr. L. Wagner, Dave 
Hentosh, Don Nichols and Fred Linton. 

In regard to the upcoming Farm Show, 
the Animal Husbandry department plans 
on taking eleven- head of cattle, 2 swine 
and 12 head of sheep. This is an event 
looked forward to by many students, for 
it gives them a chance to learn the ropes 
of showing purebred livestock. 



ciety and looks back into a very success- 
ful and prosperous year. They also hope 
to project into the future because by this 
printing the new officers will have been 
elected. 

Hort members will be receiving cer- 
tificates from the American Society of 
Horticulture Science for membership in 
the local college chapter. These are 
signed certificates from the president of 
the collegiate branch. 

The Society will also be getting forms 
to record our activities which will be the 
basis for the annual outstanding club 
award. The American Society of Horti- 
culture Science judges each club on nu- 
merous factors each year. The Hort So- 
ciety has strived toward gaining the 
number one position and now hopes to 
gain the top spot. 

DTA Offers 
Tutoring Service 

The first Delta Tau Alpha meeting 
of the new year was called to order by 
President Kip Cortelyou on January 11 
at 8:30 p.m. Numerous items of business 
were presented. 

After a brief discussion, the Club de- 
cided to return to the CoUegeville Inn 
for their annual banquet, which is to be 
held on February 15, 1968. Dr. Sheidy, 
the guest speaker, will present highlights 
of his South American tour. 

All members who plan to attend are 
required to sign up and pay one dollar 
to Richard Funt in Dormitory I, Rm. 227, 
before February 9. 

The Society reminds all students of 
its tutoring service. Keep it in mind for 
the second semester. This service, is of- 
fered with no obligation to the student. 

Don't wait for the graduate school 
to find you! Dr. Pelle urged all Seniors 
who enjoy studying and find it easy to 
look into graduate opportunities. There 
are many fine universities which are 
looking for D. V. C. students, but one 
must apply for acceptance. Time is get- 
ting short. 



The Christmas Concert was of 
its usual high quality and earned 
many fine compliments.

PROTEST, BABY, PROTEST 



by Nick Spielberger 

The Washington protest march, the raiding of the Pentagon, the campus Banning 
of Dow Chemical, nomosexual pretenders at induction centers, and draft card 
burners, are all a part of the national cry of anger against the Niet Nam war. 

It is no longer the voice of a minority 

group, but has taken the dimensions of a 
revolution joined not only by its origina- 
tors, the love and peace searching hip- 
f)ies, but by all social and economic 
evels, including political opportunists. 

With a conglomeration of this size and 
diversity of members, there is a ten- 
dency towards losing some of the basic 
and fundamental principles from which 
the movement emanated. However, this 
movement's goals have remained intact, 
those of peace, love, and humanization 
of our society. 

The war protestors' arguments are more 
valid now men they have ever been be- 
fore. This is proven by the fact that the 
United States does not stand in a better 
position now in Viet Nam than it did 
six months or a year ago, and the out- 
look for the future is very somber. 

The very important question that arises 
with the United States role in Viet Nam 
is that apparently nobody can clarify the 
reasons for our involvement. The Ad- 
ministration's and State Department's ar- 
gument is that the Unitea States is in 
Viet Nam to defend world democracy 
and to back up a committment made to 
that nation during Dwight Eisenhower's 
administration. 

It is not for the United States to de- 
fend democracy around the world, and 
to come to the aid of every nation that 
.so desires it. Quite obviously the United 
States only has the capacity to cope with 
one Viet Nam at a time, and even that 
seems like a nightmare. It would be 
virtually impossible for the United States 
to fight wars on more than one front 
without neglecting the responsibilities 
that the government has to meet at home. 
Moreover, it is doubtful that the United 
States can fight the Viet Nam war 
without expropriating funds from the 
local aid programs. A very fresh remin- 
der of this fact are this summer's race 
riots, which are a natural outcome of the 
social and economic chaos presently 
existing in the ghettoes. How can the 
United States carry on a war in Viet 
Nam and not be able to meet its responsi- 
bilities at home? 

As to the very unconvincing argument 
that the United States has an obligation 
in Viet Nam, it must be realized that 
this committment was made more than 
a decade ago and that a re-evaluation 
of the United States' foreign policies 
should have been made before going out 
to defend a committment that might not 
hold true anymore. 



Besides the unclear thinking of the 
Administration as to why we are in 
Viet Nam, we can add the even more ob- 
scure fact as to what our real objectives 
are and whether the goals that the 
United States is pursuing in Viet Nam 
can be achieved through our present 
foreign policy. 

If what the United States is seeking 
is to give South Viet Nam an honest 
democratic government, then it has failed 
in its mission. During the democratic 
regime of President Ngo Dinh Diem dur- 
ing the year of 1963, there existed a 
feud between the United States and the 
Vietnamese government because of poli- 
cy differences. During this period of 
time the United States cut back almost 
entirely the economic aid to South Viet 
Nam. On November 1, 1963, President 
Ngo Dinh Diem was assassinated in a 
coup headed by the highest officials of the 
Viet Namese army. Heavy rumors started 
circulating that the United States was 
directly involved in this coup; these ac- 
cusations were promptly denied. Follow- 
ing the denial, the United States govern- 
ment immediately recognized the newly 
formed government. Is this the way to 
run foreign policy? You bet it isn't! Uncle 
Sam, of course, did not hesitate to ap- 
prove the revolutionary regime. Nobody 
is yet convinced of the validity of the 
Viet Nam elections held last year, and 
the word fraud is still in most people's 
minds. 

If, on the other hand, what the United 
States is trying to do is to create a new 
17th parallel in Viet Nam, it will find 
this task almost impossible. The Viet 
Cong are just as deeply rooted in the 
South as they are in the North, and their 
guerrilla warfare is not only limited to 
the jungles but also in all South Viet- 
namese cities. 

Certainly, the United States is just as 
far away from the conference table as 
it has ever been before. This leads the 
nation to believe that our present for- 
eign pohcy is taking the United States 
away from the objectives that are being 
sought. 

It is the President's duty to narrow the 
gap with the communists; whether this 
means a halt in the bombing of North 
Viet Nam or a formal recognition of the 
Viet Cong is irrelevant. False pride and 
selfishness must be left out of the United 
States' policies, so that the real goal, 
peace, can be achieved.

AGRONOMY 
HOSTS SPEAKER 

Mr. L. A. Doebler, President of the 
Doebler Seed Company, spoke to the 
Agronomy Club on January 11, 1968, 
about production of seed. Mr. Doebler 
used corn as his example. He showed 
slides, which let the members see how 
the soil is prepared and how the male 
com plants are planted between two 
sections of female corn plants. Mr. Doeb- 
ler also told those present that care of 
fallow land is very important during the 
winter months. Fertilizing, it was pointed 
out, must be done in the most economi- 
cal way, and the right fertilizer for young 
plants must be applied because young 
plants need a different mixture than 
older plants. 

Before the talk by Mr. Doebler, the 
members of the Agronomy Club nomi- 
nated three of their fellow members for 
President. Jim Sickora, Leonard Tritt, 
and George Meyers were nominated. At 
the next meeting the voting will be held 
to choose the new President.

THE FURROW 



CditozlaC 



Recent issues of the FURROW have been subject to fire from both 
the students and the Administration. It is probably time to clarify the 
FURROW'S Policy to this point in the school year. This probably would 
also be a good place to make public some of the FURROW'S own prob- 
lems and announce some recent changes in the staff and staff structure. 

The FURROW now feels that it has voiced the views of almost 
every segment of the college campus. It has expressed the views of the 
extreme anti-administration and the extreme pro-administration factions. 
However, for the most part, the FURROW hierarchy has attempted to 
take a middle of the road course by not calling for extreme action on 
anyone's part. Some students on this campus do not always favor this 
point of view. This has been easily observed by some irrational acts com- 
mitted in the past few weeks. Incidentally, some of these acts have 
seriously set back Student Government and FURROW attempts to 
strengthen the students' position on campus. Fortunately however, it 
does not appear that these effects will be everlasting. 

As a person grows up so has the FURROW. The FURROW has 
now become an effective force on campus. The FURROW realizes its 
responsibilities to the students and to aiding in communication between 
the students and the Administration. Next semester the FURROW Editor 
and the Student Government President will work together for the pro- 
motion of this communication. Joint statements may also be expected. 

To carry out this policy there have been several new appointments 
within the staff. Mr. Donald Gensamer has been named Associate Edi- 
tor to the FURROW. Mr. John Martin has been assigned to cover 
Student Government and Student Court. The results of this can be seen 
in this issue. Mr. Nick Spielberger is now in charge of Special Articles 
and Reports. Also he will continue as FURROW Interview Coordinator. 
The FURROW Poll under the direction of Mr. Tim Herman will obtain 
new dimension in the investigation of its topics. Soon, an Administration 
and Faculty reporter will be named. This, as well as the others, will be 
a very important answer to the communications gap. The FURROW will 
go to the Administration and obtain statements in regard to the Ad- 
ministration's stand on issues of concern to the students. 

The FURROW will no longer bed reporters who are not doing their 
part to make the DVC campus a well informed one. The staff members 
will know their place on campus. They will become as effective a voice 
as their Student Government Representatives. Since the news spotlight 
will be on the Student Government Representatives, their representation 
will also improve. 

The FURROW now offers a challenge to the student body. Attend 
the next couple of Student Government meetings. Quite a few turn out 
to be as interesting as Mission Impossible. Voice your opinion in the 
FURROW. Write that letter to the Editor. But be selective. Criticize 
constructively. Anyone can criticize. It takes a responsible campus citizen 
to take the time to find a solution. And there are students on this cam- 
pus who have the necessary capacity. Rationality is the key. Send your 
letters to Box 1039, Delaware Valley College, Doylestown, Penna. 18901. 



IN MY OPINION 

By John D. Martin 

— ITS TIME FOR A CHANGE - 

After last year's very poor faculty and student turn out one would have thought 
that some better arrangement could have been worked out concerning the presenta- 
tion of animal judging awards. But again this year the Student Government Assembly 
Chairman and the administration have shown an apparent lack of judgement in 
attempting to showcase this absence of interest via a SPECIAL assembly. This futile 
effort had, I am sure, a firm base on the assumption that our animal judging teams 
are very important in that they represent the college across the country. What they 
seemed to fail to realize is that as true as this may he, these awards have to be 
considered of more interest to the animal majors tnan the student body at large. 
In essence, instead of an assembly to praise and show the teams our support all that 
was accomplished was a mockery. 

What was so SPECIAL about this SPECIAL assembly was a lack of general 
interest, a lack of publicity, an over-abundance of boring small talk, and an over- 
abundance of empty bleachers. With less than 50 people acting as audience, a 
noticeable absence of animal majors and one Dairy instructor missing, it certainly 
hints that a change is needed. 

This reporter has a few suggestions that could possibly solve the problems that 
beset the present system. One is, that these team awards be presented at the annual 
banquet of the Block and Bridle and Dairy societies. It certainly would sa\e the 
winners from having to be subjected to such an embarrassing situation every year, 
and it would provide an opportunity for the animal majors to praise and or discuss 
that years team. 

It has been stated that these awards are important, but so are the many other 
awards bestowed on students, clubs, and faculty. Therefore, another answer to our 
dilemma might be to hold an assembly spotlighting all of the scholastic oriented 
awards encompassing all of the majors' accomplishments. If such a course were taken 
it would be hoped Uiat such would have the same support and attendance as the 
entertainment assemblies have. 

The disappointed faces of deserving men staring at empty bleachers is not my 
idea of a SPECIAL assembly. Something should and must be done so that this farce 
does not takeplace again next year.

Dear Editor; 

I am writing in response to the 'Letter 
to the Editor' in the December issue of 
the FURROW titled "Class of '68 Com- 
plimented". There is no merit to this 
letter. However, it plainly states that 
there is absolutely no group of students 
in any following class in Delaware Val- 
ley College who can match the quality 
of leadership displayed by the senior 
class? Yes, it s one thing to display spirit 
but it is something else to show it by 
"downing" some other classes in the pro- 
cess. Maybe the immediate future doesn't 
look too bright but you mu.st give credit 
where it is due. Your impHcation is 
absurd because the sophomore class alone 
is overflowing with leadership. Their 
competent class officers are doing a fine 
job for their class and for the Student 
Government. Tlie senior cla.ss is doing 
a fine job and such is expected of the 
most advanced class on campus. There 
are good signs of leadership in the fresh- 
man class, also. Maybe the future isn't 
so dark after all. The class of '68 is doing 
a fine job but is it so fine that it can 
not l)e equaled or even surpassed? ? ? 
It's doubtful. 

Sincerely 
A Sophomore

Mice, rats, roaches, spiders and vari- 
ous and sundry other multi-legged, hor- 
ror-inspiring, anger-provoking, creatures 
are running rampant through some of our 
buildings. They feed on anything avail- 
able and are doing much damage to our 
multi-million dollar science building. The 
administration feels confident enou^ that 
the local exterminator is doing an ade- 
quate job but, as we all know, he isn't. 
We are not in so low a socio-economic 
bracket that a reward for "tails turned 
in" is needed, but some show of dis- 
approval is called for. These vermin are 
becoming daring enough to haul away 
dead cats. Just a Minute! It might not 
be a good idea to conduct an extermina- 
tion war. I know of a few profs who 
would make a sumptuous feast. Readers, 
the decision is yours.

BOVINE VISITOR

To Whom It May Concern: 

Just as mouse traps have no place 
amongst elephants, cows are certainly 
out of place in dormintories. But rules 
are made to be broken, .irrn't they? 
Upon reflection one would finally con- 
clude. Rules are not made to l>e broken! ! 

Due to transgression, unt.i'.rited vic- 
tims, whether cow or man, become im- 
plicated. Such an entanglement can cause 
mental harm, not to mention physical 
harm which gives rise to sickness and 
possibly death. Since such unfavorable 
results are inevitable, what provokes 
supposedly mature college students to 
perpetrate childish pranks? ? A. concrete 
answer cannot be given because of a 
varied number of reasons. Let us examine 
why someone would actually lead a cow 
into the hall of a dormintory. 

Should the general case be taken and 
blame it on man's inherent imperfection 
to err; or, on the other hand, be speci- 
fic, and pin the fault to the indivimial's 
insecure state of mind which can stem 
from eitiier a lack of social attention or 
simply idleness. "An idle mind is the 
devil's workshop." 

At any rate, a lesson has evolved from 
the ridiculous episode, that of being a 
trifle more considerate of conscientious 
people and of innocent live stock. 

Gentlemen, it is hoped that you know 
and will not have to learn this essential 
and indispensable lesson . . .

While one hand pats you on the back the free hand may slap your

Thanks are due to Leon Hoover, whose recent research has assured 
us of the integrity of the Leader of the Laundromat. On Friday, Jan. 11, 
Leon took his clothes to the Dutch Maid Laundry to wash them just 
before supper. When he returned a mere five hours later he was de- 
finitely surprised to find his washers empty. He was nonplussed for a 
few minutes and he raced wildly around the building looking in trash 
cans and under dryers for his underwear and socks. Suddenly he was 
inspired by an emergency telephone number pasted on the wall, and he 
fed his dime into the eager phone in hopes of retrieving at least a pair 
of pajamas to sleep in. Unfortunately he had two strikes by the time 
he hung up and his roommate, who drove him in, indicated by his wild 
uncontrolled laughter that the situation bordered on hopeless. Would 
Leon ever see his size 20 BVD's again? Would the dorms be terrorized 
by a sneaky underwear thief? 

The next morning he was ready to take his third swing. At 9:00 A.M., 
just a short 16 hours after his original trip to the scene of the disaster, he 
returned to the batting box and got a good solid hit. The Leader of the 
Laundromat was there and after hearing the desperate pleas of help 
issuing from Leon's lips she allowed herself to become persauded to open 
the proper door and retrieved the forlorn clothing which had missed 
their owner and were overjoyed to be reconciled to their white laundry 
bag once more. When the chips are down the Leader of the Laundromate 
is on your side, so don't lose your cool. 

I wish to speak for the seniors on a subject which should be dose to 
them. There are many seniors who are working on research projects, and 
more who will be starting this year. Much of the senior laboratory work 
cannot be completed in the designated laboratory times due to either 
crowding in the labs or inherent difficulty in the experiment. Many 
students may prefer to work at a time when there is little demand on 
certain pieces of equipment, which may be over needed when there are 
many students doing the same type of work. This brings me to the point 
of view that there could be open labs in the evenings. Perhaps this privi- 
lege could be limited to the seniors, who should be mature enough to 
conduct themselves properly, or if it is felt they can't be trusted some 
sort of proctoring system could be arranged to allow trustworthy stu- 
dents, perhaps student government members, to act as stewards to the 
men using the labs. See your student government representative! 




AS I SEE IT 



AS I SEE IT, people who p>ersist in making derogatory comments in reference 
to this institution should not have the nene to return here next year. 

AS I SEE IT, my informers tell me that the Furrow is operating in the red. 
Please, Administration, do everything in your power to keep this publication running. 
It's one of the best in its class. 

AS I SEE IT, Deiin Fulcoly should not be blamed for the lack of speed in 
accomplishing things around here. He must wade through a few feet of red tape to 
sharpen a pencil. 

AS I SEE, how about some heat for the Furrow office? 

AS I SEE IT, there should be more attendance at the SG meetings. Even with 
the information lag the meetings are interested and they will answer your questions 
with honest answers, usually. 

AS I SEE IT, many thanks to the SG for assuring that classes end at the appro- 
priate time in May, with no extensions. 

AS I SEE IT, I think it's time to clarify sor»ewhat the position I hold in refer- 
ence to certain major items. The cafeteria staff is doing a slighriy better job this 
year, but there is still j^xjm "for much improvement. By now, most people roust +>e 
tired of listening to compliments and complaints about the Milies. I feel that if 
they can not do their job adequately, they should be dismissed and a more efficient 
agency hired. Finally, the SG is in need of major revamping. But it is not the actual 
members, although some of them are incompetent, which must do all of the improv- 
ing. If the student body, and I mean a few hundred of them, were to get up and 
have a little interest in the workings of the SG, THEY would improve the govern- 
ment. Also, if the Administration sees that the majority of the student body is 
dissatisfied, some changes would be forthcoming. 

AS I SAW IT, the colunm AS I SEE IT will end in this issue of the Furrow, 
with the hope that it has spurred interest in a Letters to the "Editor department. It 
also tried to put forth constructive criticism of the SG. As many of you wondered, 
AS I SEE IT was created, I assure you, not to take random potshots at anything in 
particular, but to caH attention to items in which I saw a need for improvement. 
My intention was not to reform everything, but to make a stujrt at some corrective 
measures. Nor was this column created to make insulting or derogatory comments 
but to add slight humor to some of the serious problems that came to my attention. 
It is hoped that AS I SEE IT has brought some notii« to the Administratitm about 
the feelings of the students on this campus. 

On this note I would Uke to officially turn my coluimi ov«r to the Editor and 
terminate the use of my name with this issue. 

Much thanks to all of my tfficient infortners and the great -writing staff who aided 




me.

Around The Campus 

by J.A.\A/. 

It was warm and tbe bleacbers were quite uncomfortable. There 
were twelve men sitting in a cluster off to one side of the floor. Obliquely 
facing them were four teachers on one side and some curious spectators 
on the other side. Interspaced among the onlookers were some faculty 
whose faces told of having nothing to do for one hour. A man off in 
one room who was busily opening his mail obviously had something 
much more important on his mind. It was 1:15 and the show commenced. 
The speakers were somewhat loquacious. They discussed in great depth 
the information which brought these twelve men together on this very 
day at this specified time. Humor was thin but the crowd laughed 
heartily. This reporter is not quite sure that it was the jokes or the bore- 
dom. The clock showed 1:45 with 15 minutes still unused. Two faculty 
members situated at the far end of the bleachers were avidly discussing 
some topic. Some one lounged in a doorway looking completely disgusted 
with the whole project. It looked as if spectators found it difficult to 
hold their sagging eyes high enough to look down at the floor below 
their seats. But, the men were being congratulated for their excellence 
in accomplishing their jobs. And, it was noticeable that there was some 
minute trace of interest among a few people. This is how it was on 
January 10th in the early afternoon, at the Animal and Dairy Husbandry 
Awards Assembly. 



THE GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT 
a report from the S. G. 



For the past several weeks there has been an opportunity before 
the Student Government and the College that may never again be avail- 
able at such a good price and at such a propitious time. 

Your S. G. President has been attempting to clear the obstacles out 
of the way for purchasing a complete snack bar from a restaurant that 
is going out of business in Doylestown. For less than $3,000 th*' S. G. 
and/or the College could have purchased 14 table and chair sets, a 
counter and stools, table settings, back bar equipment that included 
a hooded stainless steel arrangement for the location of a grill and coffee 
maker, etc., plus many small additional items that would have l^en 
necessary for the immediate operation of a cafe of this type. 

Wayne and I had several discussions ^out this prospect. We even 
went down and talked to the retiring restaurant operator. Needless to 
say it would have been a lot of work for the Government, but we were 
extremely excited with the possibility. It sounded to us like the owner 
of this equipment was going to bend over backwards to help the College. 
He said he would not sell any of the equipment we expressed interest 
in until we could reach a decision; he would help set the equipment 
up at the College, spend enough time at the College to train help, and 
make sure that the new cafe would get off to as smooth a start as pos- 
sible. 

This year the S. G. has been spending a lot of time on social activi- 
ties on campus. With this cafe set up as we had hoped, we planned to 
have it in a room large enough to have a TV set, juke box, and even the 
unused pool table now in the basement of Lasker Hall. Without thinking 
very hard all upperclassmen should be able to think of a lareg unused 
room, with a fire place, and in the center of campus. Of course, the old 
dining hall; it has a lounge to boot. 

The next step was approval of the room and discussion of the possi- 
bility of making a loan from the administration to purchase this equip- 
ment. 

We went right up to see the administrative advisor to the S, G.^'Oean 
Fulcoly. He agreed with us on the need for this caf«tmd of the good 
opportunity before us. However, that was as far as the S. G. and the 
Administration could agree. Over long distance telephone wires our 
thoughts and proposals were presented to the Administration via the 
Secretary to the President. With time as a limiting factor, we waited 
over a week for the results of the call. Some of the S. G.'s enthusiasm 
and vigor must have been lost in the great distance between here and 
Florida. The answer was Uke a weather report, 90% nol 

But still Mr. Fulcoly and Wayne kept working on the idea. The room 
would be a major problem. Several rooms were suggested by Mr. Fulcoly 
such as the wrestling room and the old farm machioery -building. These 
were both unacceptable to the Student Government. Our plans included 
a large room that might substitute for a student union building until 
one is available, a basement and a barn did not imiwess us too much. 
Our suggestion of the old dining ball was rejected in favor of new offices. 

Realizing that the student union is a few years off, to say the least, 
Wayne and I were sorry for the sake of upcxwning classes to see this ide* 
pi by Uie way side, but so it has.

9-1 Aggies Take M.A.C. Lead 



It was unbelievable. After years of frustration and disappointment, Neumann 
Gymnasium was in an uproar over DVC's basketball team. With only seconds re- 
maining in the Elizabethtown battle Jan. 10th and the victory assured, cries of 
"We're Number One!" echoed throughout the gvm. 

Not all of the enthusiastic rooters that made up most of the capacity throng 
know it, but what they were proclaiming was the truth: at 6-1 (7-1 overall), the 
Aggies were perched atop the M.A.C.'s Northern Ck)nference standings and sporting 
a seven-game victory streak. The team. 



in its second season under Coach Jc^n 
Silan, has done more than just revene 
last year's comparitive record of 2-6; it 
is looking forward towards the M. A. C. 
Playoffs in Allentown which are sched- 
uled for the first and second evenings of 
March. 




A review of the first eig^t games of 
the season: 

Frustration 
At Drexel 

A new cry of revenge on the DVC 
campus was begun on Dec. 2nd that 
replaced the "Beat Wilkes" slogan. This 
one says, "Remember Drexel", for the 
Aggies lost a heartbreaker to the Dragons 
in overtime in the opening game for 
both clubs. 

Don Sechler, the 6*9" freshman cen- 
ter from Silan country, made an aus- 
picious debut by scoring 19 points and 
grabbing 22 missed shots. Bill Eisel, 
starting his third year at a new posi- 
tion, tallied 18 and fought for a career- 
hi^ 24 rebounds. But DVC, up by 5 
at the half, couldn't offset the inside 
scoring efforts by Drexel Captain Jack 
Linderman. Nicknamed "Captain Nice" 
by his teammates, Linderman led both 
teams with 30 points and won the con- 
test by hitting two free-throws with 25 
seconds left in the extra stanza. 

It was a case of missed opportunities 
for both sides; the Aggies were not mak- 
ing layups and shwt jumpers, while 
Drexel couldn't take any kind of a lead 
due to awful foul shooting. 

In the overtime, which was set up by 
Mars Seiferth's free-throw with only six 
seconds remaining in regulation, Eisel 
missed his only foul shot of the season. 
Since then, Bill has fashioned a string

And They're Off 

The Aggies faced a winless Dickinson 
squad on Dec. 5th and made their home 
opener a winning one. With 4 men in 
double figures, the Green and Gold had 
no trouble in disposing of the visitors, 
84-65. Delaware Valley shot an even 
50% from the floor and led by as much 
as 21 points. 

Freshman Bob McEntee, coming off 
the bench early in the game, hit 6 of 9 
field shots and plaved well. Bill Eisel 
led both teams witn 18 points and 16

Scalping 
The Indians 

Mars Seiferth hit for 23 points and 
passed off for 6 assists as Del-Val trimmed 
Coach Trimmer's Juniata squad, 84-^, 
in a home game played on Dec. 8th. It 
was a closer contest than the score indi- 
cates; the Aggies were never up by more 
than 6 points in the first half and were 
being pressed by the Indians at 48-44 
midway thru the second. Enter Matt 
Reisen. In the next two minutes the 
6*5" sophomore hit 3 buckets and the 
home forces were on their way to a 
laugher. Matty finished with 7 points 
and 9 big rebounds, a superb effort. 
Bill Eisel hauled in 22 caroms, while 
Don Sechler was saddled with 4 personal 
fouls early in the contest. Will Brandau 
led Juniata with 21 points.

Number Three 

The Silan-men made it three in a row 
on Dec. 9th when they came from be- 
hind to whip Washington College, 75-63, 
in Chestertown, Maryland. 

After a nightmarish first half in which 
the Aggies were down 40-38, Don Sechler 
and Ron Kowahk took charge and scored 
26 of their team's 37 second-half points. 
Bob McEntee hit 6 first-stanza field 
goals, matching the Sho-men's Dave 
Bruce, who finished high scorer for the 
losers with 19 points. Washington could 
manage only 3 buckets in me last 7 
minutes of play.

Lickin' 
Lincoln 

Back home on Dec. 12th the Aggies 
defeated Lincoln University, 85-76, in a 
non-league encounter. It was a close con- 
test throughout the first half but Dela- 
ware Valley blew the visitors off the 
court with an 8-0 spree in the first 
three minutes of the second stanza and 
Lincoln could not come closer than 
8 after that. Don Sechler led both teams 
with 22 points and 14 rebounds, while 
Ken Halls 18 points was high for Lin- 
coln.

Jive for 

Number Five 

Playing before an uninspired crowd 
of bearded, beat Haverford students, 
Delaware Valley played uninspired ball 
but still wound up trouncing the win- 
less Fords, 86-70. In their last game of 
1967, the Aggies looked somewhat flat 
due to the Lincoln game the night be- 
fore. Steve Bailey, a leaping guard, 
kept the contest close for the first thirty 
minutes before the "Fearsome Freshmen" 
—Sechler and McEntee— ran off 22 con- 
secutive points between them to put the 
game on ice. Bailey finished with 21 
points, while "Seek" and "Mac" had 24 
and 20, respectively. Moe Seiferth passed 
off for 10 assists. 

Haverford: Berg 6-5-17, Edgar 2-1-5, laco-

Would You 
Believe— 

And how the fans enjoyed themselves 
on Jan. 8thl Susquehanna scored 85 
points, which isn't too bad, but DVC 
put on a show that won't be soon for- 
gotten. With everybody t?etting into the 
fun, the Aggies broke their all-time scor- 
ing mark by registering 110 points en- 
route to their sixth consecutive win. 

The Crusaders brougltt with them Rick 
Eppenheimer, their 6' 2" Mr. Everything 
who was the nation's leading college di- 
vision scorer. With a i8-point effort he 
didn't let anyone down, but Don Sechler 
tallied 31 and Bill Eisel 25 while the 
pair garnered 42 rebounds between them. 
Ron Kowahk helped the cause with 10 
assists and 19 points. 

After seven ties in the early moments 
of the game, the Aggies completely domi- 
nated the boards and were making all 
the shots, producing a 54-33 halftime 
bulge. The second period was more of the 
same, climaxed by Ken Schoenberg's foul 
toss with 3:23 to go that gave the high- 
flying Aggies their 100th point.

lust for the record, January 10th, 1968 
will be remembered for the night that 
the Aggies gained sole possession of first 
place in the Middle Atlantic Conference's 
Northern Division for the first time. But 
long after the date is forgotten the game 
will be remembered. DVC won one of its 
finest contests ever, a thrilling 82-78 
conquest of mighty Elizabethtown before 
a standing-room-only throng of wildly 
partisan fans. 

Down by 5-0, the Aggies scored 6 
straight points to go ahead. But the big- 
gest lead Del-Val could build in the 
first half was 4, at 31-27 and 39-35. In 
all, the game was tied 11 times in the 
half, including a 41-41 halftime knot. 

The second period was as close as the 
first. Cil Jackson, a junior guard with 
quick moves and ice water in his veins, 
kept the Blue Jays in the game with 12 
straight points for his team midway in 
the half. To counteract Jackson's shoot- 
ing, the Aggies needed a shot in the 
arm. Coach Silan brought in Sam lancale, 
and the sophomore guard responded with

The D. V. C. hoopsters are off to a flying start. At the time this ar- 
ticle is being written, the Aggies are 7 and 1. The only loss being suffered 
at the hands of Drexel in overtime, 72 to 70 . . . It was overheard in the 
•locker room that the consensus of opinion is that if 
D. V. C. can sweep the Elizabethtown game and main- 
tain the momentum they have going, they are a sure bet 
to get into (and win? ?????) the M. A. C. Champion- 
ships at Muhlenberg College on March 1 and 2 . . . 
After seven games the Silanmen have managed to out- 
score their opponents 594 to 497. It looks like they might 
have a defense that will be equal to our football 
team's . . . On November 28, our football and cross 
country teams were honored at a banquet at Doyles- 
town Country Club. John Nice was presented with the 
outstanding back award. John finished the season with 
a 4.7 yards rushing average. The offensive lineman 

X^^MMWLM award was given to senior Dennis Dobrowolski, who 
M W m has \i^txi a four year starter for the Aggies. Junior Pat 
Day was presented with the defensive back award. 
-Pat "picked off 6 passes during the 1967 season. The 
defensive lineman award went to Ted Cottrell, who was also elected 
captain for the 1968 season. The Ross Triol Memorial Award was given 
to the 1967 team captain, Richard Kelly. Rich did an outstanding job in 




leading the team to a fine 6 and 2 record. The Central Bucks Junior 
Chamber of Commerce Award was presented to senior Michael Trazzera. 
The James Work Award for outstanding play was given to Joseph Fran- 
chella. Joe led all pass receivers in the M. A. C. with 36 receptions for 
W8 vards . . . The outstanding harrier award was given to Sherman 
Latchaw. Sherm was also elected captain for next year's team. With only 
the loss of senior Wayne Oppenheimer, next year's team is looking for- 
ward to a better season . . . Bill Roth and Warren Hitz were elected to the 
second team of All Americans by the American Association of College 
Baseball Coaches. Warren Hitz was the leading M. A. C. hitter last 
season with an unbelievable .565 batting average. Bill was the team's 
brilliant shortstop who posted a .359 batting average. Both boys are only 
juniors and have two seasons left to play . . . Ted Cottrell has been se- 
lected to the second team of the 1967 American Football Coaches As- 
sociation, College Division, All American Team. Ted was also men- 
tioned for the Pennsylvania All State Team on December 11. Ted is 
credited by Coach Craver as being one of the key men in the Aggie's 
defense that ranked number 2 in small college competition . . . During 
our game against Susquehanna, the Aggie courtsters broke the school s 
M. A. C. record in total points for two teams, 195; most field goals in one 
game, 49; most rebounds one game, 84; and most rebounds per indi- 
vidual, 23 by ill Eisel ... Not to be outdone by their "big brothers", the 
J. V. basketball team is at present boasting an unblemished 3 and 
record . . . The D. V. C. wrestlers tied Dickinson in a real heartbreaking 
meet. A penalty on D. V. C. erased a point from our score and forced 
a tie. One can not help but agree with Coach Craver who was unhappy 
with the poor officiating. In fact, many attribute Pete Marten's injury 
to a delayed call by the referee. Winning their meets for D. V. C. were 
Captain Bob Felton, Stan Lapetz, Wes McCoy, Everett Chamberlain, and 
Lloyd Corbett.

five "basic "bombs" to the delight of 
the crowd. After Jackson's jump shot 
tied the game at 70 with 3:17 to go, it 
looked like there would be a frantic 
finish at the wire. But Don Sechler, who 
bunched 16 of his 25 points in the second 
half, converted a three-point play that 

fjave the Aggies the lead they never re- 
inquished. E-town could hit on but one

Awards and 
Promotions Let 

D. V. C. honored its football and 
cross country participants at its annual 
fall sports banquet on November 28th. 
The event held at the Doylestown Coun- 
try Club, was highlighted by the an- 
nouncement that junior Ted Cottrell, 
linebacker on the Aggies' 6-2 squad, was 
chosen as captain of next year's team. 
Sherman Latchaw, the indefatigable long 
distance runner who earlier in the pro- 
gram received the Outstanding Harrier 
trophy, was named as captain for the 
cross country team in '68. 

A surprise to all who were in attend- 
ance was the presentation of certificates 
to Warren Hitz and Bill Roth from the 
All-American Baseball Coaches Associa- 
tion citing them as All-Americans during 
the '67 baseball season. 

The evening's guest speaker was Mr. 
William D. McHenry, Lebanon Valley 
College's Athletic Director and Head 
Football coach. Mr. McHenry proved to 
be a versatile speaker as he related both 
humorous and poignant incidents which 
he has experienced during his career. 
He gave a vivid, unforgettable account 
on the values of participating in sports. 

Coach Silan read out the final M. A. C. 
Northern Division statistics which showed 
John Nice, Ron Timko, Joe Franchella, 
and Floyd Ritter copping individual ti- 
tles in rushing, passing, receiving, and 
punting, respectively. Timko also finished 
second in total offense, while Nice was 
third in scoring. 

E. C. A. C. awards for Players of the 
Week went to Wayne Mehalick (Mora- 
vian game), Nice (Swarthmore contest), 
and Franchella (Lycoming battle). Half- 
back Nice, now fully recovered from his 
ankle injury, was also selected as the 
Philadelphia Daily News' College Back 
of the Week. And Timko, of course, 
became the second Aggie to win the Max- 
well Award. 

Dr. Work presented Joe Franchella 
with the President's Award, given to the 
outstanding football player for the Qreen

the biggest hand of the night when he pre- 
sented awards to Glenn Keller and Alhert

The punting done by "The Little Toe" ranked 
him thirteenth in the nation. Also in attend- 
ance were a half-dozen coaches from area high 
school.^. Mr. McHenry on Teddy Cottrell. 'I 
honestly believe that he is the finest football 
player in the Middle Atlantic Conference". Mr. 
Linta, after saluting the coaching staff and 
alumni, promised continuing success in the 
future "as long as Dr. Work and 1 have two 
legs to stand on." 



Harriers 
Finish at M.A.C. 

On November 17, 1967 the Varsity 
Cross Country Team closed its season 
at the MAC Championships at Fairmount 
Park in Philadelphia. The progressive 
Harriers improveti last year's placing in 
the finals oy two places. 

Running his last race for the Green 
and Gold was team captain Wayne Op- 
penheimer who has done an excellent 
job for the Aggies. He placed 34th in a 
field of 120 contestants in tough MAC 
championship competition. 

As has been the case all season, 
Sherman Latchaw was the Aggies* lead- 
ing individual runner. The 1968 Cross 
Country team captain placed 17th. 

Other team members who exhibited 
fine running were Howie Henderson, 
Lou Hegyes, Lee Strassburger, Stu 
Spangler and Kent Campbell. 

Although the thinclads finished with 
a 2-8 season, the team has much depth 
which includes many strong contenders 
for this year's team. They show promise 
for a fine future. Showing strength for 
the future are freshmen Dave Wagner, 
Jim Shaw, George May and Dave Myers, 
.sophomore Walt Ault, and junior Bill 
Graham.

Mr. Ned Linta 
Selected as 
Man-of-Year 

Mr. Ned Linta, Director of Athletics 
and College Health Services at D.V.C., 
has recently been named 'Man of The 
Year' by the "l>3ylestown Intelligencer". 
Ned Linta is a graduate of Gettysburg 
College and received his Masters degree 
from Columbia University. Being in his 
ninth year at Del Val, Ned has coached 
nearly every sport. He is considered a 
national authority on Intramurals and 
has served as president of the National 
Intramural Association. 

Ned Linta's previously mentioned qual- 
ifications are of great importance but had 
virtually little to do with his receiving 
this award. Many people know and ad- 
mire Ned Linta for his loyalty to his 
fellow man, his pride in his work and 
in his college. Ned is known as a leader 
both in the college and in the commu- 
nity. Most of all, Ned Linta is known as 
a man who likes to become involved in 
his work and is never quite satisfied with 
'good enough', Ned Linta wants the 
best. 

Series of 
Thefts Hit 
DVC Campus 

February 7, 1968— It was disclosed to- 
night that a rash of robberies had taken 
place on the night of the sixth. Mr. 
Sauer stated that a number of cars in 
the rear of the student parking area next 
to Dorm II were broken into. All of the 
pilferied cars were hard-tops and it was 
suspected that a coat hanger was used 
for the entry. Some of the articles stolen 
were a battery, tachometers, a flashlinght, 
some gauges and a carburetor. It vms 
also, noted that a ski-rack was taken the 
week before. The leads the authorities 
have to go on are slim. The robberies 
took place the night of the Moravian 
game, between the hours of 6 and 11 
p.m. A '49 to '53 tan and white Pontiac 
with four young strangers in it was seen 
the night of the robberies. It was being 
driven in the lot and on the lawns. Days 
earlier a group of boys was seen walking 
around spying in cars, perhaps casing 
them for future theft. The police have 
been notified and both they and the 
college are investigating the incident. It 
was added by Mr. Sauer that students 
should keep an eye out for strangers 
hanging around the lot and report any 
such incidents to the proper college 
authorities. 

New Summons 
Form Approved 

Jan. 16, 1968 — An improvement of the 
Student Court Summons was proposed 
at tonight's meeting of the Student Gov- 
enunent. Bill Dunscombe, Student Court 
judge, explained that the new summons 
would be a three part form and would re- 
place the old two part summons. The 
added part would be given to the wit- 
ness involved. As in the past, the other 
two parts would be for the accused 
and the court respectively. The new 
form, it is hoped, will minimize the 
instances of failure on the part of the 
witness to appear at the time of the 
trial. "The updated form was examined 
by all the members and approved as 
presented.

Graduating Senior 
Reviews The Year 



The Fall semester of 1968 marks the 
beginning of the end of college education 
for Del Val Seniors. This year's senior 
class can look back upon its four years at 
Delaware Valley and see the evolution 
which has taken place. The class of '68 
will be the first graduating class to have 
had full use of the facilities of Mandell 
Hall. Memories will remain of labs in 
Segal Hall and the basement of Allman 
Hall. No senior will ever forget the in- 
organic chemistry labs or the lectures in 
Allman Hall. Allman Hall has undergone 
a remarkable change and incoming fresh- 
men wil Ihave no idea what "The Bird- 
cage" could be except for a nightspot in 
Philadelphia. 

Seniors have observed the evolution 
of the dining hall from total family style 
service to cafeteria service at breakfast 
and lunch to the new David Levin Dining 
Hall. Most seniors will also agree that 
there has been a corresponding change 
in food and service. 

Most seniors also have memories of 

Sfudenf Govt. 
Bulletin Board 

Cheerleader uniforms will be recalled 
due to an apparent lack of interest. 

The group for the Spring Weekend 
Dance is still not set but will probably 
be a local one from the Allentown area. 
Cost of the tickets will be $3.00 a couple. 

There will be a mixer on February 23. 

On March ninth of Spring Weekend a 
Student- Faculty Basketball Game and a 
Car Rally sponsored by the Circle K 
Club have been planned. 

The Sophs are still awaiting a con- 
tract from The Happenings, but assur- 
ances have been made that the concert 
will not be affected. 

The price for the Spring Weekend 
package deals has been set at $7. This 
price saves the students $3 over single 
purchase price. The deal will include a 
ticket to the dance and two tickets to 
The Happenings Concert. There will be 
no charge for the Student-Faculty Bas- 
ketball Game. Tickets will be available 
for the annual buffet dinner at a nominal 
charge. 

Coats and ties will be required for 
all the men at the Spring Weekend 
Dance. 

The Printing Committee has announced 
an April 19th deadline for A-£)ay signs. 

A dinner is being planned for the Big 
and Little Brothers. Big Brother Program 
sign-up lists will be posted within the 
next few weeks. 

Concert tickets have been distributed 
to the Sophs and can be purchased from 
them at a cost of $3.50. Tickets as the 
door will cost $4. 

Sophs Announce 
Spring Concert 

The Sophomore class of Delaware Val- 
ley College is currently working on their 
biggest project of the year, the Sopho- 
more Spring Concert. Tnis activity is to 
be helcl on March 8, 1968, at 8:00 p.m. 
in Sidney Neumann Gymnasium fea- 
turing the Happenings. The price is 
$3.50 per p)erson and $4.00 at the door. 

Recently the class elected Dr. French 
as the class advisor for their remaining 
time here at E^laware Valley. 



Wolfson and Elson Hall and two years 
later looking forward to the completion 
of two new domitories. Some members 
of the class of '68 had the opportunity to 
grow along with the dorms as desks, ceil- 
ings and doors arrived after the inhabi- 
tants. 

The curriculum has undergone a 
change to include business administration 
and the name of the institution may un- 
dergo another change. . 

Two items of lesser importance in Del 
Val evolutionary change would be the 
potholed, glass infested parking lot and 
dilapidated pig bam which have evolved 
to the conditions which now prevail. 

Even the social life has evolved from 
mixers in the wide open spaces of the 
gymnasium to the more crowded condi- 
tions of Lasker Hall to Mandell Hall and 
finally to David Levin Hall. Concerts 
which were once attended because of 
class spirit and a ticket quota are now 
attended because the stuaent body de- 
sires to attend. 

The Athletic program has evolved from 
the weak Delaware Vallev Conferer»ce 
to the stronger Middle Atlantic Confer- 
ence. There has also been a correspond- 
ing change in student participation from 
school spirited and freshman customs 
dominated attendance, to the powerful 
motivated cheer for a number one team. 

Evolution at Delaware Valley will con- 
tinue and future graduates and under- 
classmen may look forward to a new 
sports stadium, a new library, a student 
union, and eventually maybe even a 
University.

Sealtest Dropped; 
Bosenberger 
To Take Over 

Jan. 16, 1968 — After deteriorating 
relations with Sealtest and repeated poor 
service the Vending Committee of Stu- 
dent Government proposed that a new 
company take its place. Gery Fisher, 
chairman of the committee, started ne- 
gotiations with Rosenberger's I>iiry of 
Hatfield, Pennsylvania. Gery Fisher told 
the Student Government that Bosenberg- 
er 's seemed like a pretty good firm. He 
gave some advantages a sv^t^ would 
afford. The new firm would jmnitfc bet- 
ter, everyday campus service. Ice cream 
would cost ten cents instead of fifteen 
for the same quality and quantitv. Milk 
will still cost fifteen cents but will come 
in a larger container. Instead of choco- 
late drink the new firm would provide 
chocolate milk, the difference being more 
butterfat. After some discussion on the 
consequences of the change the proposal 
was approved.

THE FURROW 



Junior Class 
Plans Future 

The Junior Class is looking ahead to 
their final year. There have been both 
prom and yearbook committees. 

Chuck Rocconi, of the prom committee 
is currently receiving replies from Poco- 
no resorts regarding tne prom. There 
are some problems that have arisen due 
to the size of the class. Sometime in 
March a committee will visit several of 
the resorts to select approximately three 
to five sites from which the class may 
make their selection. A final decision is 
expected sometime in April 

The yearbook staff is currently re- 
viewing bids from various companies. It 
is hop«i that definite committees will be 
set up fcMT the yearbook in the near fu- 
ture. A company will be voted upon 
early in March. The staff will begin 
work on the book in late March or April. 

The Junior Class is also sponsoring a 
dance on the Saturday night of the 
Spring Weekend, March 9th. The dance 
is from 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 midnight, 
featuring "The Soul Sounds."

an additional $3 for failure to appear.

Circle K Club 
Announces 
Car Rally 

The Circle K Club, always anxious to 
promote school spirit and aware of its 
responsibilities at Delaware Valley Col- 
lege, has decided to sponsor a Car Rally

of making it a memorable College Weelc- 
end. 

The Car Rally has already been ap- 
proved by Student Government. The 
Rally is scheduled for March 9th starting

event provided that there is a pilot and 
a navigator in each car. Trophies will be 
awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. The 
trophies will be presented to me winners 
during half time at the basketball game.

mixer held Friday at the David Levin 
Dining Hall. 

With all these projects in hand. Circle

munity to achieve some of its most 
ambitious goals. 

The FURROW POLL 

Students Oppose 
Administration; 
Want Canteen 

A poll of DVC students by The Furrow 
shows that there is a definite need for 
a canteen on campus. The interviews 
find over 95*^«' in favor of having a place 
where {(Hid would be offered to them 
between meal hours. 

Almost everyone who was asked said 
that thev go out in the evenings for cof- 
fee and/or a snack at least twice a 
week, whether it be to Ed's Diner, New- 
ton's, or the various dorm lounges. An 
even larger majority felt that they would 
frequent a canteen if such an operation 
was initiated, and for the most part, 
they would have no qualms about taking 
a girl to it. 

A point of particular interest to the 
administration is how a canteen would 
fit in with the students' studies. The poll 
finds that the students consider them- 
selves mature enough that they would 
use the canteen to their advantage. They 
would not let it distract from their work. 



Hort Society 
To Present 
Plaque 

At the last meeting, the Hort Society 
voted to give an engraved plaque to a 
selected outstanding senior horticulture 
member who has displayed momentous 
achievement and interest during his years 
at D.V.C. The individual will oe chosen 
from an appointed committee. In addition 
to this, a large plaque will be purchased, 
having the names of each chosen indi- 
vidual and the year in which he won the 
award. This will be displaved in the 
Plant Science Building which is sched- 
uled to be built sometime in the future. 

The Hort Society has held its prelim- 
inary election nominations. The final 
nominations will be held at the next 
meeting at which time new officers will 
be elected. 

The club is having its annual banquet 
February twenty-first at the Collegeville 
Inn. All Hort members who have paid 
their dues are invited to attend. The cost 
is two dollars per person. 

Richard Funt, president, and Jay Con- 
roy, vice-president, attended the Southern 
Regional District meeting of the Amer- 
ican Society of Horticulture Science at 
Louisville, Kentucky on February 5-7. 
Jay attended as the National Treasurer, 
members from the South and helped to 
Both Rich and Jay associated with many 
make our college better known through- 
out the nation. 

Elwell New 
0. H. Pres, 

The February 7th meeting of the Orna- 
mental Horticulture Society was held for 
the election of officers. Many good points 
were brought up in the campaign 
speeches by the nominees for the im- 
provement of the Om. Hort. Society. 
Upon completion of elections it was 
found : 

President — I.«nny Elwell 

Vice-Pr«ident — Carl Sok 

Secretary — Sherman Latchaw 

Treasurer — Bill Graham 

"A" Day Representative — Steve 
Fischer 

Intramural Representative —

Also discussed were the possibilities of 
speakers for future meetings. On Wednes- 
day, February 21, Mr. Angus Heeps will 
discuss the diflFerences between English 
and American Horticulture. On March 
13 Mr. Raymond Blem, the General 
Manager of Koster Nursery at Bridgeton, 
N. J., will speak on container operated 
nurseries. 

The annual Om. Hort. trip and ban- 
quet were discussed and their possibili- 
ties are being investigated by the respec- 
tive committees. 

Customs 
Changes Vetoed 

Jan. 16, 1968 — In a show of hands 
vote Student Government has given a 
second chance to total student body par- 
ticipation in Customs. President of the 
Class of 1970, Gery Fisher, at tonight's 
meeting made a proposal that would nave 
turned Freshman Customs totally over to 
the Sophomores. This is how it had 
been before last year's change. After 
much debate as to why this year's Cus- 
toms was so poor SG decided that one 
year was too brief a period to test this 
entirely new concept. Other minor 
changes were proposed and passed. Had 
the Student Government approved the 
major revision it would have had to be 
likewise approved by the students be- 
fore it could have been enacted.

Delaware Valley College 
February 5, 1968 
Dear Editor, 

It was once stated that "Thought is 
food for the mind." Therefore, as I sit 
here in the dark of night I offer the 
following thought provoking questions to 
the Students of D.V.C. whose minds 
might be "hungry". 

1. Why is it that constant and chronic 
rule breakers complain and cry the 
loudest when they finally get their 
punishment. 

2. Why is it that some students take 
no pride in their personal appear- 
ance? Is it because they lack pride 
in themselves? 

3. Why is it that some students con- 
stantly complain that there are no 
activities on campus and when there 
is an activitv held they are nowhere 
to be found? 

4. Why is it that those who criticize 
our athletic program and athletes 
axe usually frustrated one time ath- 
letes or people who have no idea of 
what goes into team play? 

5. Why is it that students are so quick 
to criticize a bad meal in the cafe- 
teria and reluctant to compliment a 
good one? 

6. Why do some students insist on eat- 
ing like some type of wild animals 
in the dining hall? 

7. Why is it that some students must 
dispose of their butts in the drinking 
fountains? 

8. Why is it that so many people are 
willing to criticize our Student Gov- 
ernment but lack the energy to add 
something to it or offer a suitable 
suggestion to improve it? 

9. Why it it that some students on 
campus insist on using a certain 
four lettered adjective in describing 
anything regardless if they are des- 
cribing their girlfriend or a car? 

10. Why is it that certain students in- 
sist on fooling around in class and 
interfere with others that are trying 
to learn? 

11. Why is it that certain students in 
their actions, language and behavior 
continue to give a bad connotation 
to the word Aggie? 

I by no means exclude myself from 
the above statements, but just wonder if 
it isn't time that all of us stop and re- 
flect on our thoughts, actions, and be- 
havior. Maybe we could all use a little 
brushing up on being human bein^l I 1 1 
Sincerely, 

A Tired, Frustrated 
and Bewildered Student 



Delaware Valley Qjllege 
Doylestown, Pa. 
1/12/68 
Dear Editor, 

So far this year, (since I arrived at this 
college) I have had a nervous break- 
down, several traumatic experiences and 
I have been under psychiatric treatment. 

My parents did not fail to notice that 
I had Deen seriously affected by the en- 
vironmental conditions existing here. 

It is shocking to accept the fact that 
Delaware Valley College is trying to stop 
the never ending changes that go along 
with the passing of times. 

Why must we isolate ourselves from 
the rest of the world? 

Is it because some older elements on 
our campus can not accept that we are 
living in the twentieth century? What is 
even more outrageous is that at times the 
puritanical society of Doylestown puts us 
down for being backward. No matter how 
untruthful this statement may seem to be, 
it must have a sound basis. 

Where did we go wrong? We went 
wrong when we started pouring all the 
information from the outer world through 
a filter, consequently obtaining one sided 
views. 

The question that arises now is whether 
we can save ourselves from this avalanche 
of filter paper? Does DVC uxint to be 
saved from this avalanche? If we do, 
then the student must start fighting for 
this cause. If on the other hand we don't 
want to fight, we will have to survive 
through the present system.

Mini Cooper 



A Visit To Ttie Auto Sliow 



There they were, tons of iron shapes 
sitting around sporting lucrative shapes 
and wretched color combinations. The 
Harrisburg Auto Show was in progress. 
Most of the American atrocities helped 
to accentuate the pervading atmosphere 
of the Farm Show Building, which 
smelled about like farm '3. 

Ford and Chevy were both in fwce, 
each trying to convince possible custo- 
mers they were the first to use Gingham 
and Plaid cloth on top of their hardtops. 
They would have been smarter to deny 
any part of such wretched excess. 

Buick and Cadillac were entered in the 
rear overhang contest. The yellow, and 



there also are no adjectives to describe 
the brightness of the yellow, Buick Elec- 
tra with matching. ( ? ) yellow and white 
checked interior took top honors in its 
class (I use the term class advisedly). 

The most beautiful car there is pic- 
tured here, the Mini Cooper, by BMC. 
This is no relation to a certain mtni-brute 
that is tfie center of derision m certain 
circles. 

The stock car fans were tfiere enjoying 
the latest customizing tricks. Even these 
lovers of Detroit iron cut see tl^ need 
for improvement, but they ta«ually go in 
the wrong direction and worsen rather 
than improve those long powerful lines. 



LCB Speaker Sponsored 



Monday, February 12th, started the

showed his color slides of Europe. 

John's slide show is just one in the 
many shows and speakers that the Con- 
temporary Club has planned for this 
semester. One of the speakers planned 
is for March 11th, when Mr. Martin 
Caplin of the Pennsylvania Liquor Con-

the law and drinking. In the planning 
stage is a February Qiess Night for stu-

THE FURROW 



EditotiaC 



Time is quickly running out. In a few months the student body will 
be selecting the man they feel most capable of advancing the student's 
voice on campus. Who will be there to be selected? Unless someone from 
outside Student Government decides to run, it would seem that there 
will be one active candidate for the oflBce. 
This brings up several questions 



worthy of investigation. First, who 
may run for Student Government 
President? The Constitution and 
By-Laws of the Student Govern- 
ment state, "Nominations and elec- 
tions of Student Government rep- 
resentatives and class oflBcers for 
the following academic year shall 
be held at class meetings five weeks 
before final examinations" (Art. I, 
Sect. I) . . . "The President of the 
Student Government shall be elect- 
ed from the Senior members of the 
Student Government . . . one week 
before the meeting of the Student 
Government at which the other of- 
ficers shall be elected, [This is to 
occur two weeks before exams, 
hence Presidential election would 
take place three weeks before final 
examinations]" (Art. I, Sect. 3, par. 
)b . . . "All Senior Student Govern- 
ment representatives are considered 
available as candidates for the Pres- 
idency of the Student Government". 
(Art. I, Sect. 3, par. d) From this 
it can be concluded that any Senior 
class member, in good standing of 
coufse, who is elected to S. G. five 
weeks before final examinations 
may run for the Presidency. 

Second, how exciting is a cam- 
paign in which there is only one 
active candidate? This is a rela- 
tively easy question to answer. 
Such elections and campaigns are 
dull and uninteresting. The active 
candidate need not say anything 
which is committal, only that he 
will do his best. He needs to offer 
no plans, no platform, no anything 
except a lot or hogwash about what 
he has done the last three years. 

Third, what kind of representa- 
tion does the junior class nave that 
it does not have more than one 
candidate who is willing to run? 
But then maybe if members of the 
junior class went to some Student 



Government meetings they would 
see how poorly they are repre- 
sented. Fortunately there have been 
some improvements. Mr. Dave Wil- 
liams has been representing his 
class well vocally even though 
there has been no marked improve- 
ment in the printing room opera- 
tion. Mr. Warren Hitz also repre- 
sents his class vocally once in a 
while but he takes no concrete 
stand on an issue unless he is re- 
quired to. He also falls short in the 
amount of physical labor he does 
to promote the Government's voice. 
Mr. John Nice, Mr. Ted Cottrell 
and Mr. Robert Lindeman merely 
take up space, space that is prob- 
ably more deserving to one or two 
of the freshmen who add some- 
thing constructive to the meetings. 
It can not be concluded that the 
junior class does not have the right 
talent. It can be concluded that the 
right talent is not where it is most 
desperately needed by the junior 

plocc 

The FURROW does not plan to 
sit idly by while the fate of the 
entire student body is being thrown 
into the laps of some apathetic 
juniors. The FURROW vdll sup- 
port a second candidate for the 
Presidency of the Student Govern- 
ment and the student body can be 
assured that he will be conscien- 
tious, hard working, and hold a 
student's point of view. This candi- 
date will not be drafted, he will be 
one who will by himself actively 
seek this office. 

Time is quickly running out. 
Now is the time to start thinking 
next year. There is much room for 
improvement on this campus. After 
gains that have been made in the 
last two years, students should not 
be satisfied to lose everything next 
year.

IN MY OPINION Around The Campus 



by John D. Martin 

The Big Brother Program since its conceution has had its share of 
failure. It is a pity that such a worthwhile idea has not received the 
acceptance it is due. The full blame for the slow germination of this 
young program, however, cannot totally be placed on the upperclassmen. 
It is true that they have often shown a reluctance to accept the respon- 
sibility of Little Brothers but the Freshmen likewise have shown a lack 
of cooperation. Poor management of the program has also decreased its 
effectiveness. Giving Big Brothers too many Freshmen to guide is a drain 
on the upperclassmen's time and is not fair to the Little Brothers. Apathy 
on all levels of the program has often bogged down the works. A person 
who does not care has no plac^ in a caring program. All those involved 
in the plan have a responsibility to each other. Big and Little Brothers 
and the managing forces of the program should realize this, assume an 
"I aire" attitud eand strive to make the idea work. Freshmen have a 
dearth of knowledge and experience, and the upperclassmen have the 
duty of dispensing these priceless gifts. 

A list for Big Brothers sign-up will be posted within the next few 
weeks. The requirements will be much the same as last year but let us 
hope the results won't be.

Insulted, that's it, insulted in the most unkind manner. Most people 
agree that the Moravian College oflBcials who supervise the competitive 
athletic games held there are noted for their numerous questionable calls 
against the visiting team. But why did they consider it their job to super- 
vise cheering from the stands? On Feb. 6, College officials removed 
horns from a few of the spectators representing our team. They said 
that it is against the rules to play obnoxious, unpleasine music. Who is 
to say it was offensive? The Del Val spectators certainly cud not complain. 
It stirred up spirit and kept enthusiasm high. How is our team supposed 
to know we are there if noise is limited? The officials refused to listen 
to reason. Well, it happened at Moravian College and hasn't occured 
elsewhere. If they refuse to be fair, we will just have to comply with 
their rules.

Among the great amount of revolutionary petitions that are being 
signed by College students, the most outstanding and obviously the 
climax in radicalism and absurdity is the one that originated in the 
precincts of the most controversial group on a certain campus. The 
Freshmen Enghsh Department. 



' This group is organized under the 
initials E.P.F.M.F.O.C., which can- 
not be mistaken with the initials of 
any other organization on or off 
campus. The English Professors For 
More Farms On Campus are ad- 
vocating just that, a farm of their 
own. Tney have decided to call 
is, instead of by a meaningless num- 
ber, A Farm Of Our Own. 

The Administration's contention 
is that due to a lack of funds they 
will be unable to accept the E.P.F. 
M.F.O.C.'s requests. The English 
Department, who does all its co- 
ercion by peaceful means, decided 
to have a sit in, walk out, and put 
on. With these powerful instru- 
ments at hand, plus Mr. W. P. So- 
nander's contacts with the FBI's 
Edgar Hoover and Mr. W. Kinnat's 
invaluable friendship with Mr. 
Robert MacNamara, a compromise 
was soon reached. 'The College ob- 
tained all the Federal funds that 
they needed and all the Adminis- 
trative posts were handed over to 
the E.P.F.M.F.O.C. Ever since this 
Administrative shake up took place, 
violent foundation-shaking trans- 
formations have occurred in this 
institution. 

In his opening speech, the new 
Headmaster of the College, Mr. 
William Sonander, announced to 
the student body that soon we 
would be joining Parsons, Antioch 
and Berkley, which are members 
of the Put Down College Associa- 
tion and the Poison Ivy League. 
New radical policies would be 
adopted by the College, and dissen- 



ters would not be allowed on cam- 
pus unless they had a written per- 
mission from their respective mo- 
thers. The Headmaster's closing 
statement was full of hope, bliss, 
and ignorance, because he pleaded 
the student body to tune in, turn 
on, but forget about flunking out. 

The next speaker was a rather 
short, slim and long side-burned 
gentlement. He wore a red poly- 
ester - dacron - promiscuous lamb's 
wool turtle-neck sweater; on top of 
it, embracing his humanity, he wore 
a bright yellow, Perry Como alpaca 
cardigan. Thus attired, he ad- 
dressed the students as new Super- 
intendent of the Anti-Underground 
Activities Department, as well as 
coach of the newly formed Mono- 
poly team. His speech was concise, 
cunning and unsound. He an- 
nounced the destitution of the Pub- 
lications staff and the formation of 
a magazine that would publish his 
often rejected articles. He also re- 
ported that his underground police 
force would be made up of ex- 
Green Beret combatants and John 
Birch Society members. His office, 
he announced, was open to all stu- 
dents and was located at the top 
of Himalayan mountains for all 
those insane enough to visit him 
during his meditation periods. 

Mr. Rencelaw, new Farm Depart- 
ment Head was introduced. His 
f)resence, however, was immediate- 
y detected because he wore tan 
khaki pants, green Sears work 
shirts, and Army-Navy store boots; 
all this could be added to the fact 



Congratulations to the Adminis- 
tration for the marvelously con- 
ducted second semester registra- 
tion proceedings. Confusion was 
a)mmon and bedlam reigned. I 
think that the proceedings could 
be speeded up tremendously if the 
respective classes would collect 
dues at some other time. There was 
no need to issue ID cards again if 
someone had the forethought to 
use the proper cards the first time. 
This time consuming step could 
have been eliminated. Also, the 
procedure for lab registration was 
a failure. Many could not get into 
a lab they had preregistered for 
because they were uninformed 
about this new policy. For a senior 
this can mean an extra semester if 
he isn't permitted to take a re- 
quired course. Administrative 
workers should show some eager- 



ness to help alleviate course diffi- 
culties due to this problem. 

I, for one, am somewhat pleased 
with the resignation of our mystery 
writer, Egbert. His column while 
very unique, gives the Furrow a 
poor image. It casts an aura of a 
low class petty scandal sheet over 
the Furrow. This up and coming 
periodical should be free from 
these trivial piecesof writing. More- 
over, the Administration and the 
student body are aware of every- 
thing this person allegedly dug up. 
There is no reason to publish any 
of this since the Administration will 
not move any faster. His column 
also detracted student interest from 
the other writers. Therrfore, I feel 
that it is for the betterment of the 
paper that his gripe column is no 
longer published. 



that he had just come from Farm 
number 3, where he was eagerly 
taking care of all the aromatic ani- 
mals. Having explained his change 
of attire from Avant-Vogue 20th 
century to anachronic mid-eigh- 
teenth century as a result of his 
higher authoritative position, he 
proceeded to unveil his Farm Mas- 
ter Plan. There would be Field La- 
boratories every day instead of only 
once a week. Taking over the one 
month long summer term there 
would be a three month long sum- 
mer course. Attendance at Farm 
Shows would become compulsory 
and Bam Cleaning I and II will be 
required courses in the future. It 
can also be added that all students 
in order to receive a degree would 
have to be members of FFA. Mr. 
Rencelaw's speech, although some- 
what controversial and obscure 
drew a lot of attention as well as 
guns, knives, and pitchforks from 
all those present. 

The last speaker was Mr. Holy, 
who had just been promoted to 
Director of all Cultural and Non- 
Cultural Activities on Campus. Un- 
der his direct authority came the 
organization of assemblies, mixers, 
concerts, and public hangings. Mr. 
Holy, attempting to explain some 
of his duties, confessed mat he had 
traded in his speedy Corvair Monza 
for a second hand AUis Chalmers 
tractor because he wanted to repre- 
sent the true image of his dreams 



and ambitions. Answering to the 
plea of the student body for more 
controversial speakers, Mr. Holy 
joyfully admitted that the first as- 
sembly guest would be a member 
of the New York Bowery Bar As- 
sociation who would speak on the 
consequences of alcoholism. For the 
following week, he announced, the 
guest speaker would be General 
Hershey who would speak to us of 
Five Easy Ways To Avoid The 
Draft. 

The town's Chamber of Com- 
merce, having learned of all of 
these anti-democratic goings on at 
the College threatened to fold its 
sidewalks even earlier during the 
week-ends and to declare the local 
diner and the Laundromat off 
limits for all college students. 

The College student body, out- 
raged by such actions, decided to 
veto the new administrative sys- 
tem and pleaded for a return to 
normality. Washington, aware of 
the goings on at one of its bnene- 
ficiary institutions decided to cut 
the flow of Federal funds to this 
precinct of higher learning. 

The E.P.F.M.F.O.C, finding it- 
self in an intricate predicament, 
foimd no other solution but cop 
out. All the new Administrative of- 
ficials resigned and peace and har- 
mony reigned in the kingdom of 
Veritas, Inepta et plus Taurus.

THE FURROW 



AGGIES LOSE 3 of 4 



Drop to Fourth Place 

by Tim Bermand 



After a tremendous 9-1 start, Delaware 
Valley's basketball team went into a 
slump in which they incurred three 
league defeats, falling from first place 
to fourth in the Northern Division of 
the MAC. 

Exams had a possible bearing in die 
loss to Albright; Wilkes was just one of 
those tough defeats; but the team hit 
their low-point at Moravian. With the 
division race as close as it is, the losses 
certainly have been costly. But when 
looking ahead to the play-offs in March, 
Del-Val is still much in the picture. In 
fact, if DVC wins its remaining four 
league games, they would wind up in 
second place behind Wagner. 

Over the past two vi^eks, the team 
has not looked as awesome as it did 
earlier. Its shooting acciu-acy has been 
donw and there have been more personal 
fouls. Several teams have gathered in 
more rebounds. Only the foul shooting 
has improved, but this has not been 
enough to off -set three defeats. 

The victory over Philadelphia College 
of Bible may have indicated a change 
bi overall team play for the better.

The Aggies made their second non- 
league contest strictly "no contest" as 
they rolled over Eastern Baptist, 84-36, 
on January 13. It was apparent from the 
outset that £>elaware Vailey was going 
to run the Eagfes out of their ancient 
gymn as they built up leads of 7-0, 
22t8, and a half time bulge of 40-18. 
Eastern did manage a 12-point streak 
midway through tne second half, but 
the Aggies scored the last 18 markers 
in the game which added the finishing 
touches to a real rout. 

The Eagles were playing without the 
services of several earlier starters who 
had been declared academicallv ineli- 
gible. They managed but nine field goals 
in fiftq-two attempts.

The fans were up, the coaches were 
up, the teams were up. But when it was 
aft over on Jan. 15, it was Delaware 
Valley who was "up and away" as the 
Green and Gold won their ninth straight, 
a tough 77-65 decision over once-beaten 
Ursinus. 

Throughout the first half the two 
teams traded baskets, until Don Sechler 
scored six points in a row to give the 
Aggies a 35-30 half time lead. The sec- 
ond peariod was all [Delaware Valley 
as the Aggies reeled off 17 points in the 
first five minutes to only 6 by the visit- 
ing Bears. After that they coasted in for 
the big win. 

Bob Compton, the leading scorer in 
the Southern Division, scored 23 to pace 
Ursinus. Sechler's 20 points and 14 re- 
bounds, along with Sam lancale 's 8 as- 
sists, highhghted Del-Val.

Surprised 

The win streak fashioned by the Aggies 
from Dec. 5th came to a screeching halt 
on January 24 when Albright, 4-10 on 
the season, rallied from behind to hand 
the visitors a 68-65 loss. 

Down bv as much as fifteen points 
(33-18 witn 3 minutes to go in the first 
half), the Lions began to claw back 
by picking off missed shots and playing 
tight defense. At the half it was 37-29 
Delaware Valley, but Albright was put- 
ting the ball in the bucket. Mike Ecken- 
rotn and Ron Lloyd combined to even- 
tually bring the Lions back, with Ecken- 
roth giving them their first lead of the 
game with 4:02 left to play. After that 
the Aggies were forced to foul, but Al- 
bright was up to the occasion. E>on Sech- 
ler and Bob McEntee's efforts to get 
Del-Val hack into the game were not 
enough, and to add to the disappoint- 
ment of losing, Dan Dougherty re-iniured 
his knee at the buzzer and was declared 
out for the rest of the season.

KO'd Cadets 

Although not looking very sharp, the 
Silanmen got back on the winning side 
with a 68-54 romp over P.M.C. January 
31st at Chester. Ron Kowalik led the 
Aggies with a fine 17 point, 12 rebound 
performance. Bob McEntee, though hav- 
ing an off-night from the floor, also 
managed 17. 

The most notable highlight of the game 
was the end of Bill Eisel's free throwing 
string. The junior forward hit 4 to bring 
his streak up to 39, but he missed the 
second half of a one-and-one near the 
end of the contest and gave him an 
over-all mark of 42 of 44. Bill grabbed 
off a game-high 19 rebounds, though 
P.M.C. out-rebounded the Aggies, 52-48, 

Delaware Valley led throughout the 
game. When the Cadets threatened with 
11 minutes to go by closing the gap to 
44-40, Kowalik and McEntee threw in 
thirteen points between them to give 
the Aggies their tenth victory, assuring 



them of their first winning season since 
1956.

0-No! 



Since thev play for the MoravianCrei/- 
hounds. Bill Kemmerer and Tmn Bon- 
stein evidentally believe in 'leaving the 
driving to us.' The two guards drove 
for layups all evening and combined for 
51 points as host Moravian dropped the 
Aggies for their 3rd loss in 4 games, 
68-64, on February 6th. Moravian, win- 
ning only their third game in 11 outings, 
took advantage of nineteen Delaware 
Valley turnovers to post a big upset. 
The visitors led at the half, 33-32, and 
the s^ond half was close ^roughout 
until Moravian went into a zone press 
midway in the period. Kemmerer, who 
bunched 17 of his 29 points in the haJf, 
broke the twelfth deadlock of the con- 
test with a jumper at the 5-minute mark 
following a had Del-Val pass. Kemmerer 
and Bonstein then ran off eight straight 
points for the Greyhounds and that was 
all she wrote. Bob McEntee, looking 
more and more like "Mr. Clutch", scored 
22.

Shocked 

When is goaltending not goaltending? 
Obviously vwien the violation is against 
the home team. The Aggies learned this 
first-hand on January 27, when Wilkes 
captured first place in the Northern 
Division with an 80-79 overtime victory 
at Wilkes-Barre. 

After the Colonels* Bob Ockenfuss 
tied the game at 73 with a minute to 
go in regulation play, Don Sechler (28 
points, 17 rebounds) traded points with 
Wilkes until, with two seconds remain- 
ing, Herb Kemp ( 23 points ) hit a layup 
on a "back-door" play. Bob McEntee 
(23) inbounded to Mars Seiferth who 
took a two-handed shot from halfcourt. 
The 6'e" Ockenfuss, thinking that the 
contest was over, jumped up and hung 
on the rim as the buzzer sounded. Moe's 
shot hit the back of the rim and bounded 
away, but it was evident that the Wilkes' 
center was guilty of goaltending. But 
the referee though differently, and in- 
stead produced a technical foul call. 
Coach Sllan sent in Tom Wentzel to 
shoot the "T", but his attempt to tie 
was off to the left, and after the con- 
fusion and excitement, Wilkes had an 
upset victory over DVC. 

The game itself was highlighted with 
the outside shooting of McEntee and the 
rebounding of Sechler and Bill Eisel 
(20 retrieves) against the speed of 
Wilkes. Del-Val led at the half, 43-40, and 
there were nine ties during the second 
session until the dramatic-and confusing- 
finish. The Aggies, out-shot the Colonels 
from the field^ were almost perfect from 
the foul line, and outrelwunded the 
smaller hosts. But the Aggies lost the 
game due to a few late defensive lapses, 
too many turnovers in the clutch, and 



one officials call.

The Aggies returned home on Feb. 8th 
for the rirst time in three weeks and 
looked like the earlier hustling club. 
DVC gave Philadelphia Bible a lesson 
in shooting, rebounding and running 
while beating them 97-56. Del-Val, led 
by Don Sechler's 23 and Bob McEntee's 
21, shot a fine 46*^ from the field as 
compared to Bible's 27%. Big Seek 
cleared the boards for 26 rebounds, high 
for the Aggies this season. 

I>elaware Valley made the game of 
basketball look easv as they used fast 
breaks all night and opened up leads of 
22 at the half (41-23) and as much as 
40 (86-46) with four minutes left to 
play. Rob Furman, a junior guard for

The Junior Varsity, after losing five 
games in a row, took out their frustra- 
tions on Phila. Bible's JV by rmnping 
over the Crusader's, 97-43. Tom Wentzel 
and Matt Reisen have been playing in 
the first halves of recent games, then 
switching to the varsity. 

The season's finale against Lycoming 
here on February 24th will probably be 
a battle for who finish^ second in the 
league race. It may also be a preview 
of the first round in the MAC tourney.

From the Locker Room 

With the Aggies Basketball record at 11 wins and 4 losses the Coach 
and the team still have high hopes of being invited to the MAC PlayoflFs 
to be held on March 1 and 2. Of the Aggies five remaining games, four 
of these are home contests and everyone is encouraged 
to come out and support the team . . . According to 
the NCAA Official Basketball Stats of January 31, Del- 
aware Valley College ranked twenty-seventh in the 
nation in Team Defense. The Basketeers have a 12 
game average of 68.7 points, and have allowed a total 
of 824 points to be scored against them . . . Here are 
the latest Del Val players to make the ECAC All-East 
Division III Basket oall Team. The team of January 21 
had Don Sechler as first team forward and Bob Mc- 
Entee as an honorable mention. The January 28th team 
listed Bob McEntee and Don Sechler as honorable men- 
tions. The latest Division III Team had Ron Kowalik 
and Bob McEntee as honorable mentions . . . During 
the first thirteen games of the season, Eisel and Sechler 
have been averaging 33 rebounds per game between 
them . . . The Aggies have become real crowd drawers 
as they have played before 7 Standing Room Only crowds . . . Congrat- 
ulations to Atheltic Director Ned A. Linta on being selected as the 
"Man Of The Year In Sports" in Doylestown. The poll was conducted

HAPPENINGS HERE -MARCH 8th 



The sounds of The Happenings will 
be featured at this year's annual Spring 
Weekend Concert in the Sidney Neu- 
mann Gymnasium at 8:00 P.M. on 
Friday March 8. The Happenings have 
made their mark on the recording 
industry with such unforgettable hits as: 
"See You in Sevtemher,' ' I Got Rhythm," 
"My Mammy,' "Why Do Fools Fall In 
Love," and many more. The group has 
been appearing at colleges across the 
country and has been featured on many 
of the top TV shows, such as The 
Tonight Show and Mike Douglas Show. 
The area colleges at which they have 
recently appeared include Albright, West 



Chester State, and Pennsylvania Uni- 
versity. The \arious reports from these 
colleges and others have indicated that 
The Happenings present a magnificent 
concert. 

As a group, The Happenings are four 
individuals. They work without a leader 
and each makes a contribution to the 
total performance. The Happenings, who 
originated from Paterson, New Jersey, 
include Ralph DeVito, Bob Miranda, 
Tom Giuliano, and Dave Libert. The 
group had played together for four years 
as the Four Graduates doing club dates 
and "demonstration" records. But things 
began to happen for them when they 



graduated from the Four Graduates to 
The Happenings. Success has not spoiled 
The Happenings. The boys are serious 
musicians and dedicated to their careers. 
Although all of them play musical in- 
struments, they do not accompany them- 
selves when they perform with the 
exception of Dave, who plays the organ. 
Since they move around a lot on stage 
and do impersonations and comedy, they 
have found that playing instruments is 
too confining. Consequently they have 
hired a drummer and a guitarist to 
travel with them. 

The event is being sponsored by the 
Class of 1970.

Memorial Proposed 

Feb. 20, 1968. — Plans were brought 
before Student Government pertaining 
to a memorial which will honor DVC 
students who have died serving our 
country. The proposed memorial would 
be placed in the grass area that is im- 
mediately in front of the Administration 
building. This location was suggested 
because of its prominent position with 
respect to visitors and students. The com- 
mittee suggested a granite rock 3 to 4 
ft. high with a bronze plaque 2 ft. by 3 
ft. to be placed on it. The plaque would 
contain tne students' name, graduating 
class, plus the birth and death dates. 
Those students* names who died in pre- 
ceding wars will also be placed on the 
plaque. It was suggested that curbing 
be placed around the grass to prevent 
)eople from walking on the grass and a 
lag-stone walk be placed on the site 
or those who wish to take a closer 
ook at the memorial. It was recommend- 
ed that the stone be smooth on two sides 
so that another plaque could be added 
if necessary. So far two classes have 
offered money for the memorial and 
other groups on campus are considering 
a donation.

Car Rally Details Set 



Alumnus Discussed by Look Magazine 



The Circle K Car Rally will be held 
on March 9th, and all those participating 
should be lined up in the Starting Line 
by 12 o'clock. 

The Rally consist of a prearranged 
course which the driver and navigator 
will try to maneuver through by follow- 
ing the clues which will be given them 
at the start of the rally. The course is a 
time, speed, and distance rally in which 
each car is supposed to get to an un- 
known check point at the exact time 
and distance set by the rally master. On 
the clue sheet will be the average 
speeds that the cars must travel to reach 
their destination on time. At no time will 
a car have to go above the speed limit 
set by the law. If any car is caught 
speeding they will be automatically dis- 
qualified. The main objective of a car 
rally is to test the ability of a navigator 
and a driver to follow directions. It 



February 15, 1968. — Today the office 
of the FURROW received a news release 
from 'Look Magazine', stating that a 
Delaware Valley alumnus, Jan F. Larsen 
is featiued (from page 60) in 'Look's' 
forthcoming article on drug abuse. Jan 
F. Larsen, a 1961 graduate is now a 
Chemist and Secret Agent for the 
Federal Food and Drug Administration. 

This article, in the March 5th issue 
entitled, "The Cruel World of Speed," 
is an inside story including information 
gathered from interviews with those 
involved in the producing and the selling 
of drugs. Several old and common drugs 
are mentioned as well as some new ones. 

Jan F. Larsen for two years has been 
one of the 299 undercover members of 
the Federal Bureau of Drug Abuse Con- 
trol, an carries a snub-nosed .38 colt and 
in his pocket flashes his gold-plated 
badge: B.D.A.C. Jan to strangers is "in 
the business" some try to buy LSD from 
him. "Going out and anesting the users 
isn't going to solve the problem", he says. 
"You got to get the malcers". 

While in high school Jan had interests 
in the Landscaping business. At Dela- 
ware Valley College, Jan's interests 



turned toward food chemistry. While he 
was in college he was married and is 
now the father of three children. Jan 
and his family now live at Fayson Lakes, 
a North Jersey exurb. 

As a student Jan, a Food Industry 
major, was active in extra-curricular 
activities. They included Track, Agro- 
nomy Club, Photography Club, Prom 
Committee and A-Day Committee. 

Contemporary 
Club Gets Board 

Feb. 20, 1968. — At tonight's meeting. 
Student Government gave The Contem- 
porary Club permission to use the glass 
enclosed bulletin board on Lasker Hall. 
The board will be used by the club to 
showcase entertainment and events of 
cultural interest in and around the 
area. When in full operation the board 
will boast a current fist of Philadelphia 
and area movies, Broadway shows, 
coffee houses, lectures, concerts and the 
like. 




Mix they did to the tun« of the "Rtuty Chain" 

Closed Session 

Feb. 13, 1968. - After tonight's 
regular meeting, the Student Govern- 
ment held a special closed door session 
at which only Student Government 
members were present. Its purp>ose was 
to evaluate the first semester and set 
standards for future meetings. 



must be pointed out that some of the 
clues are not as obvious as some people 
may think. This way the contestant has 
a chance of getting lost and having to 
use his logic to see how he can get back 
on the course without losing too much 
time. 

There will be two classes in which the 
ccmtestant may enter. They are the 
Novice and Seat of the Pants. The 
Novice class entries must take an 
accurate account of time and milage that 
they travel from the start of the rally to 
the end. There will be prizes for those 
entries who come closest to the set time 
and mileage. The entries of the Seat of 
the Pants class just have to finish the 
rally but have to do so in sequence. That 
is, the first SOP has to come in before 
the second SOP which has gone off, but 
not before the Novice which was sent 
off just prior to the first SOP. 

The Finish Line will be at the parking 
lot in front of the chicken houses. It 
must also be emphasized that this is 
not a race but a rally and that no 
contestant in any way will have to go 
above the speed limit set by the police. 

The six trophies for the winners will 
be presented during the dance that will 
be neld in the Sidney Neumann Gym- 
nasium at eight o'clock, March 9. 

Soulsafions af 
Marth ISth Mixer 

Feb. 20, 1968. — Student Government 
at tonight's meeting has set March 15 as 
the date for the next mixer. The group 
selected will cost $180 and call them- 
selves The Soulsations. There are seven 
in the band and four in the vocal group. 
There was some discussion as to the 
success of a mixer scheduled so close 
to Spring Weekend, but it was consider- 
ed tnat interest would be high enough 
to warrant it. At the same meeting an 
all girl band was suggested for a pos- 
sible future mixer but was tabled for 
further discussion.

Circle K Officers 

At the meeting of February 12th, 
nominations and elections of officers 
were held. The results of these elections 
are as follows: 

President — Bruce Renie 
Vice President — Richard Serwell 
Secretary — Dana Ingerto 
Treasurer — Steven Schwartz 
Publications — Joel Newman and 
Nick Spielberger 

The outgoing officers were congratu- 
lated for their outstanding efforts and

turned out to be all freshmen, were 
wished good fortune by the outgoing 
President James Sickora and by club ad- 
visor Mr. Wolford. 

The speaker, Mr. William Begeanu, 
and the club discussed the Car Rally 
being sponsored by Circle K during the 
Spring Week-end. All the details were 
carefully worked out and check-point 
volunteers were assigned to their respec- 
tive posts. A committee was set up to 
choose the trophies to be presented to 
the winners of the Car Rally. Also a 
Committee was set up to publicize the 
Rally on campus. Accepting the proposal 
of the Student Government, the Club 
decided to start the Car Rally at noon 



DTA Hosts 
Dr. Sheidy 

The Annual Delta Tau Alpha 
Banquet was held on February 15, 1968, 
at tne Collegeville Inn, Collegeville, 
Pennsylvania. Approximately 40 mem- 
bers and Dr. Pelle, Chapter Advisor, 
attended. Guests included Dr. Sam 
Sheidy, speaker. Deans Turner and 
Hartley, and Mr. Larsson. 

The Invocation was given by Dr. 
Sheidy. Following the prayer, all ate a 
variety of prepared foods. 

Clifford OOTtelyou, President, then 
introduced Dr. Sam Sheidy. Dr. Sheidy 
is the Director of Veterinary Medicine at 
Smith, Kline and French Laboratories in 
Philadelphia. He has traveled throughout 
the world as a representative of Smith, 
Kline and French Laboratories and as a 
Goodwill Ambassador for the United 
States. 

Dr. Sheidy presented slides and spoke 
to the Club about his recent tour of 
Brazil, Venezuela, and Puerto Rico. He 
visited several veterinary schools and 
noted that the educated people of the 
countries would prefer the opportunity 
to study in the universities of tne United 
States rather than receive its foreign aid, 
which is wasted by the governments. 

In conclusion. Dr. Sneidy suggested 
that the American pleople, not the 
Government, assist their neighbors to the 
South. More sister-cities should be 
organized where one state works with a 
chosen city, as proposed by the late 
President Kennedy. This awareness of 
the other's culture would benefit inter- 
national relations. 

on March 9th instead of 10 o'clock in 
the morning; also, the trophies will be 
presented during the dance in the Gym- 
nasium. A table is presently set up in 
the Dining Hall for all those interested 
in signing up for the Car Rally. 

Plans were discussed for the Car 
Wash to be held late in March. As soon 
as spring arrives, the club is planning 
to continue its services to the community 
by going to the Doylestown Orphanage 
Home to re-landscape the green areas. 

Service and Accomplishment is the 
motto of the Circle K Club and is being 
followed to the point. 



Agronomy Club Sets Dates 



The Agronomy Club was called to 
order by the new president, Jim Sickora, 
on the 22nd of Feb. at 7:30 p.m. 

The topic of the banquet was taken 
up and Collegeville Inn was selected for 
the upcoming Agronomy Club banquet. 
The time and date of the banquet will be 
fixed after the speaker has been chosen. 

Bill Varano suggested that the 
Agronomy Club members display their 
'A' Day exhibits in the field crops lab. 
This was very well accepted by all. 

A committee was formed to organize 
and help Bill Varano in the drawings and 
photographs for the advertisement in the 



Benner Speaks 

Feb. 20, 1968. — At tonight's meeting 
of Student Government Mr. Benner, 
instructor of Plant Sciences, made some 
suggestions in the way of campus im- 
provements. He made it known to the 
Government that the litter problem on 
campus was becoming serious. It was also 
brought to the attention of the Govern- 
ment that more lighting woiuld be 
desirable in the area of Lake Archer for 
the skaters and to showcase its beauty. 
He also noted that something should be 
done with the bulletin board on Lasker 
Hall or it should be removed. Through- 
out the meeting Mr. Benner entered 
into the discussions and made his feel- 
ings known to the Student Govenunent. 



'A' Day program. Anyone who has a 
prospective project for the 'A' Day was 
asked to see Bill Varano or the president 
of the club. 

After the meeting a movie on "Wild- 
life and the Human Torch" was shown. 



F. I. Club Plans 
Banquet; A-Day 

At the Food Industry Club meeting of 
February 14th, tentative plans were 
made for both the Club Banquet and

Wednesday March 13th. The banquet 
site was narrowed down to three possible 
choices after a vote. Sign-up list is posted 
outside the Food Industry Lab so that

the machinery in the Pilot Lab on a 
rotating operation basis. In addition, 
stationary displays will be set up in the 
main lecture lab. 

On club business, Mark Uebersax was 
unanimously elected secretary because of 
inability of the previously elected officer 
to fulfill his office.

The Hort Society is proud to announce 
that two seniors have been selected for

that both had done exceptional work 
and put forth much effort to improve 
the society. 

The Hort banquet was held February 
21 at the well-known Collegeville Inn. 
To say the least, it was fulfilling! After 
dinner, former president Rich Funt

the names of all award winners from 
each year.

methods of surveying for damage, seed 
and plant certification, and spraying 
techniques.

Soil Conservation 

On February 20, 1968 the Delaware 
Valley College student chapter of The 
Soil Conservation Society of America 
met in Segal Hall Field Crops Lab. The 
main topic of discussion was the election 
of officers. The former president of the 
national organization, Tom Scudder, an- 
nounced that two and possibly three 
members of the society were preparing 
papers that they would hopefully present 
at the National Convention of The Soil 
Conservation Society of America. This 
convention is to be held in Athens, Geor- 
gia in July. A-Day was abo discussed. 



Michalski Loses 
To Gerberich 

John Gerberich was elected almost 
unanimously as president of the band 
club. The election meeting was held on 
Feb. 12. The other new officers are as 
follows: 

Vice Pres. — Stan Michalski (3 times 
elected V.P.) '69 

Secretary— Fritz Blum 70 

Treasurer — Dan Helwig TO 

Quartermaster— Bill Cooke 70 

Reporter— Don Duca 70 

A-Day Representative— Ed Stepler 70 

The band held a performance on 
Founder's Day playing a selection from 
"Songs of Band*' and "Balladier". 

The club has a new schedule this 
semester. Practices are held Mondays 
■at 7:00 P.M. and Wednesdays at 4:30 
P.M. 



Society Meeting 

Elections were then held and the results 
were as follows:

Representative Lance Erb 

Publications Bill Pounds 

President Scudder then thanked the 
members for their cooperation in the 
past year. 

The newly elected president, George 
Myers, has many responsibilities facing 
him in the coming vear. Of particular 
interest is the possibility of a special 
meeting between the two adult chapters 
of Pennsylvania and the DVC student 
chapter. Certainly much can be learned 
from the Penn Chapter, from the Phila- 
delphia area, and tne Keystone Chapter 
from the northern and central part of 
the state. The evening will be more en- 
hanced with a prominent guest speaker 
and the presence of such individuals as 
Mr. Carson and Mr. Nahoto, who are 
both closely associated with soil conser- 
vation work. The evening promises to 
be very rewarding and it is certainly 
open to all who have an interest regard- 
less of major. 

There is also a membership drive that 
the society is conducting, with national 
recognition and awards for those chapters 
whic-h have the highest increase per- 
centage-wise of new members. The drive 
ends on April 30, 1968. All those inter- 
ested in joining the society are invited to 
the next meeting to be held the second 
week in March. 



IN MY OPINION 

by John D. Martin 

While visiting a friend a few weeks ago, some of the campus pictures in his room 
caught my eye. I had always thought that this campus was fairly well kept and 
attractive. However, after seeing these photographs (vintage 1915) I began to see 
how much deterioration had occured on this campus in the way of beauty since these 
pictures were taken. 

This campus was once a sprawling and 
elegant one but slowly has been gobbled 
up by the encroaching city. On one of 
the college's tracts stanas a sewage 
treatment plant where once the wheat 
swayed in the wind. Two projected 
highways will soon cut across college 
property and houses now loom where 
horses once plowed. But these are marks 
of progress and little can be done about 
them. The point I would like to get 
across to you, the reader, is that the land 
the college still owns is not, in my 
estimation, as well used nor as well kept 
as it could and should be. 



in the precess of creating a naturalistic 
area. The site of this project is between 
the greenhouses and the Hort. Building 
up to the library. A group of Junior Orn- 
amental Horticulture majors have also 
done some beautifying work around 
campus. And not too many years ago Lake 
Archer was restored and now is one of 
the most beautiful spots on campus to- 
day. With continued projects such as 
these and the cooperation of students 
and administration alike, this reporter 
hopes that some of the lost fcauty 
captured on film can again grace our 
campus. 



Looking at the photographs I found it 
hard to believe that a campus once so 
beautiful could have slipped into such 
a state as it now appears to be in. The 
meticulously groomed plantings and art- 
fully shaped rows of trees are gone and 
in their place have come poorly kept

not given a chance to grow due to 
thoughtless feet, poorly kept orchards 
and plantings, and trasn thrown on the

campus. In a beauty sense the campus 
of today is only a shell of its former self. 

There is however a glimmer of hope 
in restoring some of the beauty to this 
campus. Mr. Benner, instructor in plant

Dear Sir: 

In the January 23rd issue of the Furrow 
on page three there is an article "Protest 
Baby Protest" by Nick Spielberger. Who 
is Nick Spielberger? 

WTien a speaker addresses an 
audience, he is first properly introduced, 
usually reference is made to a brief out- 
line of the speakers background and 
achievements. Every author in your 
paper should be properly introduced. 
For example: 

Nick Spielberger is a professor of 
International Political Science at 
University. He is the author of "The 
Future of Southeast Asia" and has just 
returned from Viet Nam. — Editor 

or 
Nick Spielberger is a student of Dela- 
ware Valley College of Science and 
Agricultxu-e, class of 1971. — Editor

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

We the members of the Junior Business 
class would like to take issue with you 
over a past editorial concerning the 
Junior Class Student Government Rep- 
resentatives. 

We feel that every one of your charges 
are false. The Junior Class Representatives 
are doing a fine job in Student Gov't. 
This is a statement which comes from 
facts, facts which you choose to ignore. 
For example did you know that the 
present Student Govt has done more 
than any preceeding it in behalf of our 
college students? 

We feel that when a paper prints 
an editorial it should look to the truth, 
not to a prejudiced and unjustified view 
of one person. 

In closing I would like to borrow a 
few words from the last Furrow with a 
few minor changes. 

It can be concluded that the Furrow 
does not have the right talent for in- 
forming the student body of the true 
facts. 

Respectfully, 
The Jr. Business

Bulletin Board continued 

A Student Government assembly is 
scheduled for April 17. 

An assembly featuring the Regional 
Selective Service Director has been pro- 
posed for either February 28 or March 
6. 

A larger bulletin board will be pro- 
vided in Allman Hall for the off-campui 
students. 

Off-campus students may be able to 
eat lunch in the cafeteria next year. 

The sports bulletin board in Allman 
Hall will be moved to alleviate con- 
gestion. 

A showcase may be erected in the 
dining hall. It would be placed in the 
indentation left by the removal of the 
water fountain. 

A path to Mandell Science Building 
from Ulman Hall is under consideration.

THE FURROW 



letteRs to the e6itoR ^^>^/ 



To the Editor: 

In an earlier issue of the Furrow I 
read the staff welcomes the student 
views on whatever the Furrow prints. I 
would Uke to take advantage of this 
opportunity. I am a Freshman class 
representative in S.G. and I am interest- 
ed in my class and the entire student 
body. 

I feel the Furrow staff should explain 
in detail all its ideas and come up with 
some desirable solutions instead of look- 
ing for faults around our campus and 
not really backing up all its so called 
facts. 

The Furrow is becoming a pai)er of 
mostly complaints instead of a paper of 
helpful ideas as it was earlier this year. 

The Furrow editor should look at this 
college and S.G. and realize it is working 
for him, and that he is a student himself, 
and realize that there must be unit>' 
througout the campus to achieve any 
type of good. 

The S.G. Representatives are chosen 
by their class to represent their class and 
work for their class. In order for the 
Government to accomplish anything for 
the students, it must have the student 
body's support. 

I feel the more the Furrow mocks 
different S.G. members, and actions of 
the S.G. the less the Government will be 
willing to support the Furrow's ideas. 
"If you want to gather honey, don't 
kick over the bee hive." This is practiced 
by the successful business world, and 
human nature is the same everywhere. I 
wish the Furrow would realize the 
student body voted for these represent- 
atives. The Furrow makes the student 
body look like it can't choose leaders 
when it chooses little items to write 



President 
Refutes Claim 

Dear Editor, 

In your strictly opinionated editorial 
of February 21st, vou asked what kind 
of representation does the Junior class 
have in tfie Student Government? I 
would now like to answer that question. 

Every Junior representative, with one 
exception, has been a member of the 
Student Government for three years. 
Each representative has a clear and 
thorough understanding of the Govern- 
ment's functions. I also would point out 
that the additional new representative 
has carried through several needy pro- 
jects on campus. Many of these cannot 
be performed until Spring, however they 
will be accomplished. He is also currently 
conducting a revision of the "Big Brother 
Program" in addition to his other duties. 

A second member has charge of the 
printing press and has provided out- 
standing service to all who have request- 
ed it. He also contributes much to each 
meeting. 

Another important function served by 
your Junior class representatives involves 
prompt publication of administrative- 
student communications. He also plays 
an important role in our Student Court. 

Still another member conducts the 
scheduling of all events on the weekly 
calender. He also prepares the area and 
provides for adequate facilities for our 
college mixers. 

The final Junior representative is my- 
self. As President of the Junior class, I 
have served in many varied Student 
Government Committees and I am more 
than adequately acquainted with the 
complex functions of Student Govern- 
ment. Many of these committees dealt 
with a combination of inter-class, club, 
and government activities, such as 
Homecoming, Spring Weekend, and A- 
day. This has given me an understanding 
of not only the function and duties of the 
Student Government, but how to put 
them to the best use. 

I know that the student body ne«l 
only look at the work already done by 
the Junior representatives and their 
experience and capabilities, to realize 



about their representatives in a mocking 
manner. The Furrow doesn't just mock 
the S.G., it mocks the Faculty, Adminis- 
tration, and in some cases the student 
body itself. 

I feel the Furrow is losing a lot of 
respect from the student body. Many 
students of my class have approached 
me and asked why the Furrow doesn't 
come up with some more constructive 
ideas instead of printing so many 
articles that cause friction on various 
parts of our campus, and leaving the 
articles without any form of solution in 
most cases. 

As a Freshman Representative in S.G. 
I feel the Junior class Representatives 
are as active as can be expected. If each 
Student Government Representative ex- 
pressed his ideas on each item brought up 
in Government it would take all night 
to discuss a few items. The Junior class 
representatives are very active in projects 
outside the Government meetings, and 
the Government minutes explain their 
achievements. 

The Furro# stated in issue 6 that if 
the Junior class has only one active 
candidate to run for Government Presi- 
dent for the coming year, he will have 
only a lot of hog wash to offer or calling 
his past accomplishments hogwash 
stating it more clearly. I don't feel you 
need an interesting campaign for a 
Govt. Pres. to have a successful leader, 
as was stated in the Furrow. 

The Government Representatives of 
the classes of '69, '70, and the Student 
body should look to the future Govt, 
leader by judging what he has done in 
his past here at D.V.C., rather than 
having a prejudiced Senior judging him 
for us. 

Fred Harteis 
Editor's note: Satisfaction with the 
present state of affairs leads to apathy. 
Controversy brings out the true talents 
of many people. It is better to have 
opinions expressed on paper, where thev 
hopefully are thought out and organized, 
than expressed as poisonous rumors and 
dangerous gossip among the population. 
The important phase of any organization 
is not now they act toward each other 
internally but what total affect they have 
on the world. If the true feeling of co- 
operation is to be fully appreciated, each 
side must know the others views. Unity 
on campus can only come through open 
expression of views, not through hidden 
hatreds and suppressed desires! D.G. 

A TIRED Student 

Dear Editor, 

I have no argument with the context 
of a letter to the Editor which appeared 
in vol. 14, no. 6 of the Furrow, except 
to say that all of the eleven points listed, 
with the exception of three at the most, 
are products of human nature. People 
always criticize and never compliment. 
People always complain and never offer 
a solution. 'This is the way we are and 
always will be. 

I too am a tired, frustrated, and be- 
wildered individual. I am tired of people 
who write to express opinions and then 
do not have the backbone or better still 
the "GUTS" to sign their name and tell 
the readers who's opinions they actually 
are reading. I am bewildered because I 
cannot comprehend how an individual 
who has such a basic character flaw can 
criticize others. I am frustrated because 
I also see the need for change and yet 
I too have no solution. 

Sincerely yours, 
Jay R. Schulmann 

that they are more than quaUfied to hold 
their positions. 

I am the lone candidate for the office 
of Student Government President, but 
with my past experience, leadership 
capabilities, and confidence in my own 
ability to lead the student body of 
Delaware College, I ask the students for 
their support when election time arrives.

It is probably suitable to evaluate what has happened at D.V.C. 
during the last five (5) months. 

It appears that this campus has attained a level which has never 
been matched to this date. D.V.C. has become a powerhouse in sports, 
it has developed a proudness, it has developed a strong concerned 
Student Government, it has developed a student body that is beginning 
to stand up for wliat it believes in. There are things that still need to 
be done and these things are not few in number. However, it is time 
tliat the students of D.V.C. are congratulated for the progress that they 
have made (with the hope that this praise will only make the students 
continue in their desire to become informed of campus affairs, campus 
activities and campus problems). 

With each passing year, each organization on campus becomes 
better, stronger and more active. This is due, for the most part, to 
strong leadership which has placed these organizations on a roadway to 
progress. This year is no exception. More and more people on this 
campus care about the rmme of this institution. They are starting to 
care about their educational program too. They are starting to look for 
a higher calibre of learning with each passing semester, they are starting 
to look 'for a greater degree of communication between tlxe students, 
the Administration and the faculty. And they are finding it. Students 
are starting to offer solutions to some of the problems which tJiey see. 
Students are not criticizing just for the sake of criticizing, they lionestly 
want changes made, they are looking for a liberalization. 

It is hoped that they realize that if change is too fast it can be as 
detrimental as no cJmnge at all. Both can cause utter destruction. 

The students of D.V.C. have the capabilities, the brain power and 
the fortitude. And wlxatever they don't succeed at this semester, they 
will succeed at next semester.

face! 



by Don Gensemer 



Since everyone else is expressing his opinion of S. G. I guess I might as well 
try to be a conformist. Most of the controversy seems to be centered around certain 
Junior representatives. Since my opinion probably won't help much here I will just 
ramble through some facts that I feel are pertinent. 

In recent times, like the past four weeks, the persons involved in the criticisms 
have extended themselves to Herculean efforts in an attempt to clear themselves. 
They have completely changed their attitude which indicates they feel the old attitude 
wasn't satisfactory. This leads me to ask how could the class be satisfied if the repre- 
sentatives find their attitudes unsatisfactory? It is good that the change has occurred,- 
but it is too bad the impetus came from the Senior class, which won't be here next 
semester to guide everyone else. 

As for the seniors, I think they must feel too secure, because I have had more 
trouble getting ideas discussed at meetings than ever before. I guess they don't need 
my vote anymore. 

In some of the letters to the editor there seems to be a reluctant tone. Are vou 
men afraid to express your opinion in public? A newspaper is the sounding board of 
the people. If opinion, especially personal opinion, cannot be expressed, a paper will 
be the epitomy of bias. No matter how impartial a writer tries to be he usually 
manages to slant his article in one direction or another. The Public (this means you); 
has the right, is actually reciuired as citizens, to choose which side is correct. If you 
know something which should be known to all, write. 

About the last issue of the Furrow I can only say everyone is entitled to a few 
mistakes. Some of the trouble is due to the printer and if Editor in Chief Edmunds 
ever gets on the stick there may be some changes. ( Power happy Bill Ukes that title 
so I threw it in to appease him.) Aha, dissension in the ranks, you may say. But no, 
this is just a bit of public ribbing. I hope what loyal readers I have don't mind my 
indulgence. Another sore point about this job is the proofreading of the article 
handed in. If these writers are typical of the DVC student I would suggest a required 
journalism course to go along with a beefed-up English Comp ccjurse. 

The Rusty Chain — could be one of the best things to ever hit this campus. One 
of the better cement mixers, thanks to Walt Bobb for suggesting this group.

WELVE 



SAMDEY, SEPTOBER 32 - A huge conflagration stnick one of the dormatories 
last night. The dorm, a four story structure of stone and wood composition, was 
approximately fifty years old. There have been a rash of minor fires in the past few 
weeks but they have been extinguished with little damage. Since the heroic Doyles- 
town Fire Company had been called to the college a number of times, due to false 
alarms and bad fire systems, they were reluctant to move with their usual alacrity. 
The blaze which originated on the second floor blocked one of the two stair wells. 
Panic quickly spread through the students and forty were suffocated in the crushing 
crowd. Investigators have been unable to determine the cause of the blaze since 
little other than the stonework remains. The College has received more than 600 
phone calls from frantic parents and it is expected that by this evening a list of 
victims will be published. The President of the College is unavailable for a statement 
at the moment. 

ULMAN HALL RESIDENTS take notice. This can happen to you. True this 
situation can be fitted to many of the campus structures but only Ulman Hall has 
had about five small fires in recent weeks. Just as one well liked and long standing 
prof concludes all his lectures with "MOVE OUT", I say that to you before this 
happens. Residents, you have two choices: be on the look out for any suspicious 
characters or fires, or have your room changed to the first floor so that you can 
jump out quickly. THE DECISION IS YOURS. 

"We want you to understand that we are not trying to drag you over the coals 
. . . But why did you write this? What proof do you have? Why were you so critical? 
Don't you nave anything better to write on? Why can't you be more constructive 
rather than destructive? . . . I've handled it (registration) for 11 or 12 years and 
this is the first time it has been criticized." 

Well, maybe it is about time someone spoke up. Not to say that the registrar has 
done a poor job in the past or that he is derelict in his duties but the only way we 
learn is from our mistalces as pointed out by others. Perhaps my needling was a 
bit too harsh or I played up a rather minor, unimportant phase of school life. 
But, if my writing had been bland in nature it would have been overlooked and 
written off as a foible of a writer who likes to jab at people. As it stands now, I can 
not offer any proof that the situation has been rectified for we must wait and observe 
registration in September. But I am inwardly pleased that the Administration has 
at least woken up and is willing to discuss stuaent problems. 

Blackmail, duress, threats, they are the dirty words of an even dirtier business. 
A business which is commonly associated with the more active members of our 
society, namely the gangs and f)ther criminal types. It seems quite strange to me 
that on our model campus these kind of actions could occur. Sure I guess it is possible 
that these threats could be made, but it is unconceivable that the one who asserted 
his domineering power was so motivated by a premature disclosure of the content 
pf the last Editorial. I can see only one logical reason to justify his peculiar actions. 
He must have been frightened by the threat of exposure of the truth since lies can 
easily be refuted by their lack of conclusive proof. If this is the case then there is 
a good reason that it was an innocent by-stander unconnected with the Furrow and 
not a Furrow reporter who was threatened. I can offer no other logical justification 
to explain this matter. It will be most interesting to see if this person turns up as 
' a member of Student Ciovernment next year.

Dear Editor: 

I feel a few critical comments should 
be presented in regard to your Editorial 
in tne last issue of The Furrow. 

At this time I find it necessary to 
apologize to the student body for having 
to use their newspaper as a means of 
trying to clear my name as a Student 
Government member. I feel any griev- 
ances the Editor might have had with 
junior representatives would have been 
best handled on a personal basis. 

First of all, I believe in speaking with 
jacU. A concept you definitely did not 
practice in your Editorial. 

In your opinion, I am not worthy to 
be a Student Government member be- 
cause I fail to take an active part (in 
your opinion) at government meetings. 
Apparently the only way you feel a per- 
son can be a gooa member is to speak 
in quantity, not quality, at meetings. 

A wise man listens to the jacts before 
he can judge or intelligently comment— 
a practice I try to emulate. 

Secondly, I would like to be remem- 
bered for my actions, as well as my 
verbal opinions. This I can back with 
facts. I hold two permanent positions in 
the government — those of court prose- 
cutor and chairman of announcement 
committee. 

As prosecutor, I work to uphold the 
school s name through enforcement of 
the Penal Code. It isn't a job at which 
you win friends, but we haven't had any 
repetition of violations by the same per- 
son this year. 

Just for a matter of correction, The 



Furrow stated that no summons where 
issued by members of the class of 1969. 
I issued a summons myself and the 
records will indicate this is a fact. 

Since you are a dormitory counselor, 
Mr. Editor, you know that I distribute 
the news items as quickly as I receive 
them. Sometimes this entails delivering 
a late issued notice to each bulletin 
board on campus personally — to insure 
our students are as well informed as 
possible. 

The following are just a few tem- 
porary committees on which I have 
served activity this past year: 

1 ) Freshmen Customs ( revision of 
rules) 

2) Homecoming (publicity on 
campus ) 

3) Memorial Committee 

Thirdly, I have invited members of the 
junior class and now would especially 
welcome them to our government meet- 
ings. After taking a thorough review of 
my past actions, I am not embarrassed 
for how I responded. But so I will not be 
misunderstood, I am open to changes and 
continual progress for the future. 

Fourthly, I will state why I am not 
actively running for the President of 
Student Government. I plan to run for 
the presidency of my senior class. And 
as you well know, Mr. Editor, the presi- 
dent of Student Government can only 
hold that position in the school. 

And last, please have, at least, the 
jact of my name spelled correctly in any 
future articles. 

Sincerely, 

Robert H. Lindemann

Something will come of nothing. As a matter of fact never have so many things 
happened on campus since the Miley's have decided to do just that, rwthing. What 
are these law enforcing officers doing during their work hours? Some of the most 
important activities in which these officers indulge are: television watching, coffee 
breaks, visiting in students' rooms and the most recent gimmick thought up by this 
civic-minded, loyal patrol is to walk around the campus in pairs. Maybe they are 
just as afraid of patroling the school grounds in the darkness as the rest of the stu- 
dents. They take refuge in the dormitories, and when asked about the recent thefts 
going on in the parking lot one answers "I don't care. It wasn't my car". Let us all 
meditate and hope that Jehovah will return some day and take over the Miley's jobs. 



There is no reason to believe that those students who are already members of 
the Student Government should remain there if they are not doing their job. During 
class elections, the representatives of that class should present a review of what 
they have done as individuals to improve the Student Government and the campus 
instead of reading through the minutes of the Student Government which are dis- 
tributed throughout the campus after each Student Government meeting. These class 
officers who are not doing their job properly should be challenged by those class 
members who think they can do a better job. 



According to an Administrative official, the reason for taking down the poster 
that said "Make an ass out of the mules" during the basketball game against Muhlen- 
berg, vtas not because it was of questionable character, but because Delaware Valley 
College is a relatively new member of the Middle Atlantic Conference and we are 
being watched more closely than the other members. It is also worthwhile mentioning 
that all the MAC regulations are being enforced at all the colleges, and that we are 
being graded in a more rigorous manner because of our status in the Conference. 
Muhlenberg College has been reluctant to compete with Delaware Valley College in 
various sports because the Academic Dean of that college has repeatedly stated that 
we are not of the same academic caliber as Muhlenberg College. It is expected, 
however, that this will influence the Aggie's victory spirit so that we bring back home 
the MAC Championships. 

In a recent issue of "Look" magazine there was a story about a Delaware Valley 
College graduate, Mr. Jan F. Larsen, a Food Industry Major of the Class of 1961. 
He is presently a member of the Federal Bureau of Drug Abuse Control: he is one 
of the 299 secret agents throughout the United States and earns $12,70<1 Hopefully, 
this should induce some students to transfer to the Food Industry I> t»artment, so 
that they may become, in the near, future members of the prestigious B.D.A.C.

Student Suggests 
Improvements 



Dear Editor, 

I have taken into account a number of 
complaints by the students, and added 
a few of my own. I am urging the ad- 
ministration to go over these complaints 
with understanding and an open mind. 

1. Encroachment of "Personal Rights". 
The author believes that the students 
should be given the right of growing a 
beard, a mustache, siaeburns, or long 
hair, if kept in an orderly fashion. This 
would be determined by the administ- 
ration. 

2. Saturday Classes. As the students 
know, it all comes dowm to state aid for 
Saturday classes. Isn't it possible that 
these classes be rotated every semester? 
For instance, one half of the student 
body would have Saturday classes one 
semester, and the other half the other 
semester. Saturday classes every semester 
ruins the weekends for trips. 

3. Privilege, other than freshmen, of 
moving off campus. The author is one 
of those students who would like to 
move off. He feels that the food is 
exception.itely poor on campus and also 
believes that moving off campus would 
help his grades considerably. Let's face 
it, this isn't high school, and these 
restrictions shouloT be somewhat limited. 

4. Dining hall privileges. The author 
feels that if the dining hall were kept 
open from the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 
a.m. it would satisfy the students a great 
deal. This would give them a place to 
go after their dates. 



5. Rooms in the dormitories. The 
rooms in the dormitories should be more 
comfortable in order to induce studying. 
At this point the rooms appear like 
hospitals due to the drab walls. Students 
should be allowed to paint and decorate 
rooms at their own discretion. This 
would include painting walls, uphol- 
stered chairs, and carpeting. The author 
feels that this should be allowed only 
if the student will live in the room until 
he graduates. 

The author feels that if the administ* 
ration will meet the students halfway, 
both will enjoy their positions to a much 
greater extent. Remember, one gets out 
of college what one puts into it. A 
lesson can be learned by both sides. 

Respectfully yours, 

Charles K. Wool 

Editor's note: It is impossible to allow 
upholstered chairs and rugs in rooms 
due to fire regulations. In the past few 
weeks there have been fires in several 
dorms, and if flammable materials had 
been in these rooms there might have 
been a real need for the Doylestown Fire 
Dept. 

I also wish to take exception to this 
writer's opinion of the food. And if the 
dining hall were open as suggested who 
will pay the staff for working? Would 
he have a turnstile put in to charge 
those using it? D.G.

Letter to the STUDENTS 



Delaware Valley College 
February 25, 1968 

Dear students of DVC; 

After carefully evaluating the situation 
which has arisen because of the FUR- 
ROW Editorial (Vol. 14, No. 6) I have 
come to several conclusions. 

The majority of the objectives of the 
Editorial have been met. The fervor 
which it has aroused on this campus has 
probably not been paralleled for many 
years. 

Now it may be asked what were the 
objectives of the Editorial. This is a 
relatively easy question to answer. The 
first objective was to put those 
mentioned on the "hot seat' in hope 
that these talented students would begin 
to use their talent to the best of their 
ability. Very reliable sources have in- 
formed me that this is being done and 
that some progress has been made. 

The second objective v/as to inform the 
student body that in order to have a 
strong SC the student body must let 
its representatives know what it wants 
and that they have to do the job which 
they were elected to do. 

There are several students who have 
been quite critical of the Editorial. Some

felt that the matter should have been 
dealt with on a personal basis. Is it the 
right of the FURROW to approach a 
member of the SG and say, "Unless you 
shape up we are going to print the truth 
about you?" The objective of the FUR- 
ROW is to inform, e.g. inform the stu- 
dent body of how they are being repre- 
sented. It is not the right of the FUR- 
ROW to adopt the responsibilities of the 
students themselves. The students are 
the ones that elect the SG representa- 
tives. They are the ones who must 
exercise the power of the vote. 

The FURROW provides the facts to 
the best of its ability. And this ability 
has steadily improved since the begin- 
ning of the year. The core of the FUR- 
ROW staff is a well informed group. 
Its knowledge of campus activities and 
affairs parallels that of the SG itself. 
The FURROW is not in the dark. 

The third objective is to provide the 
students of DVC with an interesting, 
rewarding, and profitable SG Presi- 
dential election by urging that a ra(% of 
more than one active candidate take 
place. Some students feel that it makes 
no difference if one or two candidates 
run. There are also several countries 
throughout the world that sympathize 
with this point of view. And wouldn't it 
be nice if LBJ ran unopposed in th« 
next Presidential election? 

As of yet it is difficult to say whether 
this objective will be met. Mr. Warren 
Hitz has announced his candidacy for 
the office of SG President. Only time 
will tell if he will run unopposed. 

In closing allow me to emphasize, the 
ultimate FURROW objectives are to 
( 1 ) inform the student body to the 
best of its ability, and (2) promote the 
voice of the students on tnis campus. 
However the success of these objectives 
rests with the student body itself. 

Cordially yours,

Glee Club Starts 
Practice for A-Day 

The Glee Club has started work on 
its A-day program. This year's program 
will consist mainly of folk son|^, includ- 
ing "Kum Ba Yah," "Jamaica Farewell," 
"Blow the Wind Southerly," "ClimTn' 
Up the Mountain," "De Animals A- 
comin'" and show tunes including, 
"Standing On The Comer," from the 
musical The Most Happy Fella, "Mame," 
from the musical of the same name and 
"The Girl From Ipanema." 

In addition to the music for A-day, 
the club is working on the very difficult 
music for All-State Chorus. In order to 
achieve perfection in this music Mrs. 
Buckman the club's director, Mrs. 
Wheeler the club's pianist, and many 
of its members have spent extra hours of 
rehearsal time with the hope that the 
boys who will represent Delaware Valley 
College will be an example of the 
club's musical ability and enthusiasm. 

Letter to the Editor 

Parking Plea 

Dear Sir, 

I believe in obeying all rules and 
regulations but I cannot see paying for 
an obvious blunder. 

An administrative notice espoused 
that no students are permitted to park 
behind Dorm II. Some weeks later a 
sign was erected. "Employee Parking 
Only," it pointedly read, \%ith an arrow 
pointing to the left, die area behind 
Dorm II. The area to the right contains 
14 spaces and the sign's implication 
was, students may park there, to the 
side of Dorm II. I parked my car, to 
the side of Dorm II, to the right of the 
sign, and was given a ticket. 

I brought this to the attention of an 
individual who handles this and was 
told there was nothing he could do. It 
was simply a lack of communication 
between responsible parties. I was 
guilty and I had to pay the fine. Since 
I received and payed the ticket, students 
have continued to park without being 
ticketed. 

What should I believe? Did I have to 
pay the ticket to defray the cost of the 
sign? There has been no further notice 
that we can park in the area to the side 
of Dorm II, therefore I assume all should 
be ticketed or else my $2.50 returned. 

What is the story?! 1 

Why is the right side of Dorm II con- 
sidered the back? 

What is the purpose of the "Parking 
Employees Only" sign? 

Why must others and I suffer for the 
apparent confusion? 

Sincerely, 

Richard B. Lipman

Aggies End In Third Place ... Go To MAC 



It can be said that Coach Silan's 
hoopsters have made their mark in the 
Middle Atlantic Conference. In closing 
out their second regular season under 
"Jumping John", the Aggies won two 
of their last three league contests to 
finish in third place in the Northern 
Division and thereby gain the right to 
play in the Championships at Albright. 
In addition, the 14-5 overall record com- 
piled by the Green and Gold is the best 
showing ever for a Delaware Valley 
College basketball team. 

Wagner won the division crown with 
an 8-2 log. Lycoming, which clinched 
second place with meir victory over 
the Aggies, had a 12-4 mark. Next was 
Del-Val, whose 10-5 record gave them 
third over Elizabethtown's 9-5. These 
four teams squared off on March 1-2, 
with the winner playing Phila. Textile in 
the NCAA College Tournament later 
this month. 



Team Effort 



The Aggies showed off their defense 
and combined this with good shooting 
to ground the Flying Dutchmen of 
Lebanon Valley, 77-54 on February 15. 
Bob McEntee's 21 points led DVC, who 
had 4 other men in double figures. Pat 
Simpson was the only Lebanon Valley 
player to have that distinction as he also 
scored 21; 16 of them in the second half. 

The visitors managed to play on even 
terms with the Aggies until Don Sechler 
hit a three-point play with 6:09 left in 
the first half to give Del-Val the lead 
at 21-19. With McEntee hitting three 
bombs, the Aggies ran off a 12-3 tear 
for a 33-22 halftime bulge. This ad- 
vantage widened throughout the second 
stanza, with the biggest gap coming 
just before the end of the game. 

Both Sechler (16) and Bill Eisel (17) 
were responsible for the Aggies' com- 
manding rebound advantage. Sam lan- 
cale, playing a strong ball game, passed 
off for 8 assists and threw in the 
season's longest field goal, a 60-foot 
shot that just beat the halftime buzzer.
