Dr. Turner Awarded 

Man o^the Year 

Dr. George E. Turner, the Deai 
of Delaware Valley College an^ 
an active member and past chaii 
man of the Institute of Food Tech- 
nologists, wa!| recently awarded the 
honor of Man of the Year by his 
fellow members. 

The Philadelphia Section of the 
Institute of Food Technologists was 
formed in 1939 to join professionals, 
technical workers, and managers in 
diversified areas of the food field 
into a unified professional body 
that transcends the confines of 
academia, government, and in- 
dustry. The organization gives its 
attention to advancing knowledge 
and practice in food technology so 
that ultimately better and more 
adequate food can be provided for 

The IFT consists of approxi- 
mately 10,000 members, including 
6,000 professionals and 4,000 non- 
professionals representing food- 
supplier organizations. The mem- 
bers belong to 37 regional sections 
scattered throughout the United 
States, United Kingdom, Japan and 

The 370-member Philadelphia 
Section publishes a monthly news- 
letter, holds monthly dinner meet- 
ings with speakers, sponsors tech- 
nical seminars, and plans field trips 
to selected food organizations. It 
has committees concerned with 
education, employment, student 
loans and scholarships, publicity, 
membership and recognition of out- 
standing work by its members. 

Dr. Turner was born in London, 
England. In 1923 he settled in Win- 
nipeg, Manitoba, where he did 
* some farming. He left the farm in 
1932 to attend college at the Uni- 
versity of Manitoba. After receiving 
his degree in 1936 he became a 
foreman in an ice cream plant for 
two years. In 1938 Dr. Turner was 
awarded a fellowship to the Uni- 
versity of California, where he re- 

ceived his degree of Master of 
Science in Dairy Industry and 

In 1948, he received the degree 
of Doctor of Philosophy from Iowa 
State for his research work on the 
Bacteriophage in dairy industry. 
After leaving Iowa State, Dr. Turn- 
er joined the staff of the South 
Dakota State College as an asso- 
ciate professor of bacteriology, 
where he remained until he ac- 
cepted a position at Delaware Val- 
ley College, then known as the 
National Agricultural College.

A new addition to campus life 
is 1300 A.M. Our new radio station 
is owned and operated by the ser- 
vice fraternity, APO. Kirby Ellis, 
Rich Wilson, and lira Niedweske 
are the station's first discjockies. 
Music, local news, campus news 
and announcements will be given. 
Broadcasting starts every week 
night at 8 and continues until 11. 

The student government has pro- 
vided WAPO with a significant 
$200 donation, which should get 
the Station well on its way. A plexi- 
glass window is being installed to 
give students a good view into the 
studio's operations. The studio is 
located on the second floor of the 
Alutnni House. 

Much interest has been shown 
in the station's ideas, and if enough 
interest is shown, WAPO will ex- 
tend its coverage into the week- 

Give WAPO your support. 


The last meeting of the Food In- 
dustry Club was held on Tuesday, 
January 19, 1971. It was a short 
meeting in which elections for the 
various club offices were held. The 
first election was for the office of 
president. The candidates were 
John Furphy and Gary Webb. Both 
candidates gave a short speech in 
which they each told what they 
planned to do in future club activi- 
ties. John Furphy won the election. 
The other elections were for the 
office of vice president which was 
won by Gary Webb; the office of 
treasurer won by John Smith (re- 
ceiving back his old position); the 
office of secretary worj by Bill 
Windsor; the office of representative 
to The Ram won by Steve Goscin- 
sky; and the office of intramural 
representative won by Greg Kratz- 
er. Everyone is looking forward 
to a productive second semester.

The Delaware Valley College's 
student newspaper staff has decided 
to change the name of the paper to 
'The Ram". The newspaper staff 
held a contest enabling them to 
have a variety of names to choose 
from. The name "The Ram" was 
chosen because of its significance 
to the college as our mascot. 

There are a number of reasons 
why the staff felt the need for a 
new name. One reason was, that 
the staff is trying to revamp the 
paper from the front page to the 
last. In the past, the paper has 
consisted of mainly club news and 
sports. This year, the paper is try- 
ing to be more informative, con- 
troversial, and interesting. In this 
issue there are topics such as: the 
campus radio station, abortion ser- 
vices, pollution control, and some 
interesting letters to the editor. 

Another reason for the change is 
the fact that Delaware Valley Col- 
lege is no longer strictly an Agri- 
cultural college. The science and 
business administration majors 
make up a large percentage of the 
Delaware Valley College students. 
The newspaper staff feels the name 
"The Ram" will be able to repre- 
sent the entire student bo*'y of the 

It is understandable that not 
everyone will be satisfied with the 
name change, but it has been found 
almost impossible to satisfy every- 
body all the time. 

Dean Turner has been awarded IFT Man of the Year.

The Furrow has been accused of 
being of low journalistic quality and 
of being one-sided or un-sided, 
politically. We've been told by some 
that we are out of touch with the 
majority of students in this college. 
Some people also say that The 
Furrow doesn't contain enough im- 
portant, national, controversial or 
interesting news. The criticisms 
come from various faculty and ad- 
ministrative members as well as 
from the student body. 

These critics fail to consider the 
staff size and also fail to realize the 
amount of work involved in pub- 
lishing a paper. The need for more 
help is apparent. We now have 
new editors and a few new faces, 
but the staff is still not large enough 
to cover the news. There is plenty 
of room on the staff for people who 
want, or aren't afraid, to express 

The few students who have 
written articles for The Furrow 
have had them printed. Whether 
or not The Furrow agrees with their 
particular point of view has no 
bearing on getting the article print- 
ed because they ARE ALLOWED 
to .express themselves and their 
opinions freely. 

The critics of The Furrow would 
do well to get off their pen-points 
and write articles for this publica- 
tion and SHOW INTEREST in the 
school instead of criticizing every- 
thing the active and interested stu- 
dents do. It has become evident 
that all that these critics want to do 
is to stop us from saying what we 
feel and not get into the action 
themselves. What has happened to 
those who didn't mind getting in- 

The critics are so unconcerned 
that they won't even write a letter 
to the Editor to offer criticisms of 
or solutions for this publication. 
They should do something con- 
structive for a change. Their apathy 
and the concerned students' hard 
work have made The Furrow what 
it is today. Now is the time for 
those critics to PUT UP OR SHUT

Panorama City, California, Jobs Europe program officials announced that they 
have guaranteed jobs available in Europe anytime of the year for hundreds of young 
Americans 18 to 26 years of age — Summer and year-round. 

The aim of the program is to give young people an inexpensive and unique cul- 
tural opportunity to live in, and learn about, Europe. 

This is the 10th anniversary of the program. To-date five thousand and eighty-six 
students have worked in Europe with their help. 

These salaried jobs are mostly for general help with large 1st class European 
hotels. Most jobs include board and room. Friends can work with, or near each 
other, if they apply together. 

Vice President Dr. Van der Velde from Holland stated that "England and the 
French and German speaking areas of Switzerland offer the best working, cultural, 
r< c reational and leisure opportunities." 

An important feature of the program, besides the guaranteed job, is the fact that 
participants are free to travel where, and for as long as, they wish after completing 
their work assignment.

Dear Student: 

A new facility to perform legal 
abortion in New York State is now 

Broadcast House is a large, 
modern, fire-proof structure located 
at 180 E. Rte. 59 in Nanuet, (Rock- 
land County) New York; a suburb 
of New York City, ( 15 miles north ) . 
The staff consists of New York 
State licensed Obstetricians and a 
certified Anesthesiologist, all of 
whom are on the staff of local hospi- 
tals. The pre-operative and post- 
operative rooms are staffed by 
Registered Nurses. 

Abortions are performed by suc- 
tion curettage on an out-patient 
basis, (the patient is able to leave 
after resting about 2 hours in the 
recovery room). A physical exa- 
mination, complete blood testing 
and urinalysis is included. We work 
in close conjunction with a licensed 
laboratory where a blood bank and 
Rho Gam are available. 






The fee for the complete proce- 
dure is $200.00 under local anesthe- 
sia, (up to 12 weeks gestation). 
General anesthesia is also available. 
There is an added charge of $15.00 
for complete blood work. 

Abortions are performed Monday 
through Saturday. Calls for cases 
to be scheduled should be made 
between 9 and 3. 

Upon request, reservations for 
overnight accommodations can be 
made at the Sheraton Inn, Holiday 
Inn, or Howard Johnson's. Trans- 
portation from any of the airports 
is available ($25.00 round-trip pri- 
vate limousine) from LaGuardia, 
Kennedy, Westchester and Newark 
Airports. By highway, the facility 
is located 1 mile east of Exit 14 
of the New York State Thruway; 
1 mile west of Exit 8 of the Pali- 
sades Parkway on Rte. 59, Nanuet, 

Yours sincerely,

This is the first issue of The Ram 
and also the first issue of the new 
year, so I think it is only fitting 
that we take note of all the change 
that there has been on campus since 

The first is the change of The 
Furrow into The Ram. Another is 
the absence of a campus laundra- 
mat, but because of inadequate 
water supply. Another big change 
is the length of the cafeteria line; 
it's longer now because the number 
of students has grown again without 
any change in the facilities. 

We have two new additions to 
the campus plant. One is a new 
dorm, which is falling apart already. 
One of the steps going to the 
second floor is loose, and very 
easily slants under your step. We're 
also getting another basketball 
court, but why is it perpendicular 
to the other gym? Had it been 
added to the other gym, by knock- 
ing out a wall, we would have one 
large gym for concerts, and also 
making more room for the freshmen 
and their parents on their first day 
here and other large assemblies. As 
it is, we have two separate gyms, 
both with basketball courts, instead 
of one large room. 

We still have the rumors about 
the dean making the rounds 
through the dorm, but now they're 
, started by the dorm counselors. 
There are still "good ole" Saturday 
classes; but everyone, students and 
professors alike, enjoy them. So 
why should we change them? Just 
one more. Many of us are having 
a new experience this year: cold 
showers almost anytime you wash, 
except at about 2 till 5 a.m. 

To counterweight these minuses, 
we have several very big plusses. 
The first is the new hours for Open 
Door Policy. Now if we could just 
get rid of that theoretical book in 
the jam, I'm sure everyone would 
be even happier. Another big plus 
is W.A.P.O., the campus radio sta- 
tion. It's too bad that A.P.O. had 
to get it themselves, instead of the 
administration's seeing the need for 
it and supplying the equipment. If 
this were done, all the students 
would have a chance to have a 
spot, rather than just A.P.O. mem- 
bers. Finally, someone had the idea 
that perhaps linens didn't have to 
be exchanged at night, so now we 
can do it in the afternoon rather 
than wasting time in line at night, 
when we all have better things to 

As you can sec, there has been 
much change on campus this past 
year. There are probably many 
more alterations, but I feel that 
these are the important ones. With 
9001 .nity, maybe we can get some 
more changes for our benefit rather 
than for the school's.

Delaware Valley College of 
Science and Agriculture, though 
still having a farm school image, is 
well known to every Doylestown- 
ian. The local Doylestown newspa- 
per, The Daily Intelligencer, does 
an excellent job covering various 
news items concerning our college. 
It does such a thorough job that 
people reading this paper often 
know certain facts which the Aggies 
themselves do not know. Hence, 
those in the Doylestown area are 
well informed about the sudden 
growth and various improvements 
taking place at Delaware Valley 

This is fine, but what about the 
heavily populated portion of Bucks 
County where there are many pro- 
spective students and athletes for 
our college? We find these residents 
have only a very vague idea of 
what D.V.C. is, where it is, and 
what courses it offers. For example, 
if an Aggie were to go to Levittown 
and tell several people that he went 
to D.V.C, he might receive very 
unusual responses. People might 
think this student is attending Dela- 
ware County Community College, 
The University of Delaware, Dela- 

ware State College or a two-year 
agricultural school. 

Although these mistaken identi- 
ties are sometimes understandable, 
there is a significant reason why 
D.V.C. is relatively unknown in 
many areas of the Delaware Valley. 
The Courier Times, a newspaper 
circulating through an area of 
Bucks County having nearly two 
hundred thousand residents, men- 
tions D.V.C. on only rare occasions. 
If this paper were to publish articles 
which appear in The Daily Intelli- 
gencer, people might be able to 
recall certain facts about our col- 
lege. Bucks County residents should 
be aware that D.V.C. is a four- 
year college located in Doylestown 
and offers degrees in Science and 
Business as well as in Agriculture. 

Residents in Philadelphia and 
Montgomery Counties could also 
become more aware of D.V.C. 
through better coverage in Phila- 
delphia newspapers. By obtaining 
the same amount of publicity which 
other Philadelphia area colleges re- 
ceive, D.V.C. could become well 
known to residents throughout the 
Delaware Valley.

In The 
Dorm Rooms 

There is a great deal of student 
enthusiasm about having refrigera- 
tors in the dorm rooms. Oris Hol- 
lands, Samuel 104, is doing research 
about renting small refrigerators 
from National Sales Leasing In- 
stitute Co. 

The refrigerators would be two 
cubic feet and would sit on the 
floor. They should keep a tempera- 
ture of 40° F. They would be rent- 
ed out to each room for two dollars 
per student per month for a period 
of nine months. There also would 
be a deposit of ten dollars or more 
depending upon what the Student 
Government decides. The Student 
Government could also charge a 
little more and make a profit from 

The students would be able to 
store fruit, cold cuts, bread, cake, 
milk, soda, juices, etc., in their 
rooms. This would be very handy 
because there is not a great variety 
of vending machines on eampus. 
The students would also have their 
own choice of snacks. They might 
even save money on soda and other 
snacks. . 

Some of the disad\ antages of 
having the refrigerator 5 would be 
the increase of electricity needed 
in the dorms to run them. The total 
electric output in each dorm may 
not be sufficient to withstand the 
refrigerators coming on all at once. 
It alst) would be easier for students 
to keep beer in the rooms. This 
problem could be solved by having 
surprise inspections of the refri- 

Cris is still waiting to hear from 
National Sales Leasing Institute 
about the amount of electricity the 
machine would reouire for normal 
use. Once he finds out this informa- 
tion, he will look into the prices 
and other information about the 
electricity needed to run them, from 
the Pennsylvania Electric Co. 

When he compiles all the perti- 
nent facts, he will submit them to 
the administration and wait for 
their reply.

Campus Radio Station 

by David Teichman 
On February 3 a radio station 
will open up for all of Aggie land 
to hear. A radio station is not a 
new idea; it has been brought 
before student government many 
times before. But for one reason or 
another it has been dropped, money 
being the main reason. It was a 
good idea then and it is a good one 
now. It's a way of bringing a small 
school like ours a little closer to- 

Now APO has secured the equip- 
ment, a room, and personnel to 
run a radio station. All we are 
asking you to do is lend us a little 
support. I don't want to see this 
project go the way other Aggie pro- 

jects have gone, down to the lake 
along with the firehose. Too many 
people have worked too hard for 
this one to fail. In the short time 
that I have known this school I 
have seen a benefit basketball game 
go down the drain along with three 
concerts, and possibly a fourth one 
too. All of this happened because 
of lack of interest on the part of 
the students here. Everyone has 
been yelling for a radio station, 
and now we are going to get it 
with very little cost to you; all we 
want is your support. How much 
effort does it take to turn a dial? 
This is something that you wanted; 
so you have no excuse not to get

The existing store layout is very poor as ean be seen l>y the enclosed floor plan. 
By the elimination of wasted space and existing faults, and the addition of counters, 
racks and new departments, it will be possible to utilize available space and operate 
with the present staff of personnel. 

This plan calls for the opening of the front counter to attract the attention of 
passersby to certain types of merchandise primarily bought on impulse. The sick- 
counter will be withdrawn and used for displays and for a new department allowing 
the clerks more freedom of movement The new department will consist of new 
counters two and three. Number two counter will enclose cards, posters, records, 
tapes and more expensive items. Number three counter will eliminate the against- 
tbe-wall counter allowing both customers and clerks to move around more freely. 
The overall effect of these changes will be to bring more merchandise into the cus- 
tomer's view. 

After the counter situation is completed, floor-to-ceiling shelves will be installed 
around the perimeter of the store to increase space utilization. These will functionally 
eliminate wasted wall space and the existing tables. The obsolete ice-cream freezer, 
cigarette rack, and pretzel machine will be replaced by vending machines because they 
are convenience low-profit items. The existing cash register will be moved to ac- 
commodate both front and side counters. Another cash register will be acquired for 
use in the new department. This register will be located at the opposite end of the 
store to serve both Dumber two and number three counters. Also, on the various 
counters will be placed display racks obtained from interested vendors, preferably 
with glass fronts. 

The present line of merchandise carried by the student store must be restructured. 
At present the emphasis appears to be on a diverse line of merchandise with little 
or no consistency and little relationship, if any, to the student's wants and needs. 
By using the following criterion as a basis for merchandise decisions, it will be pos- 
sible to restructure the existing merchandise line; 1) Appropriateness and relationship 
to other lines. 2) Profitability. 3) Growth potential, 4) Availability and competitive 

In restructuring the existing merchandise line one should place emphasis on 
stationery goods and necessities. In addition to the existing line of stationery a paper- 
back book section should be added which would include: Barnes & Nome College 
Outline Series, Cliff's Notes. Dunn's Notes, and a selection of supplemental reading 
material that will be of use to students in studying. Considering that the stationery 
line is the store's biggest seller, the existing line should be supplemented so that it 
can effectively cope with student needs. 

After supplementation of the stationery line the existing line of necessities and 
toiletries should be revamped. By adding substance to the necessity line it will be 
possible to draw customers that will make additional purchases in other lines. Speci- 
fically soaps, deoderants, after-shaves, etc., should be well stocked to promote cus- 
tomer investigation of other merchandise. Since the demand for these necessities is 
inelastic, it follows that they should be exploited. Thus, by the addition of this line 
of merchandise, customers that would otherwise go elsewhere will be acquired. Since 
this line is second only to the stationery line, it follows that it should he bolstered to 
promote a general drawing appeal to the students. 


After adding depth to the necessity line, the next move would be the inclusion 
of a line of merchandise including; cards, posters, records, and tapes. From student 
reaction this line should have great growth potential and should also he very profit- 
able. By making these articles readily available at the student store, students will 
switch their patronage of a few stores in Doylestown to the student store. This line 
by adding drawing power will also facilitate sales in other Hues, 

Lasth/, since cigarette smokers buy by convenience, little thought is given to 
purchase. Candy, crackers, etc., follow this convenience trend. Therefore, vending 
machines, which have been proven able to adequately replace counter sales, should 
be installed. The time required of clerks to wait on customers for these insignificant 
purchases can thus be directed to more useful activities,

The annual banquet of the Block and 
Bridle Club and the Dairy Society was 
held at the Collegeville Inn, Dec. 9, 
1970. After a delicious smorgasbord, Dr. 
Pelle. Head of the Animal Science De- 
partment, gave an introductory speech. 
Presentations of awards were made to 
the respective members of each judging 
team. Those awarded on the Dairy Judg- 
ing Team were: Tom Boyer, Guy Hitz, 
Fred Harteis, Boy Brenneman, Jim Mus- 
ser and Warren Thomas. Receiving 
awards on the Livestock Judging Team 
were: Tom Williams, Charlie Mauck, 
Doug Geible, Steve Schwartz, Bob Sol- 
lenberger, Bon Sollenberger, and Bich 

The guest speaker was Dr. Gordon 
Cairns, Dean of the College of Agricul- 
ture at the University of Maryland. 

Dr. Cairns' speech was both tremen- 
dous and interesting as he covered in a 
very wide range the future of agricul- 
ture. He brought up such topics as the 
genetic capabilities in both livestock 
and crop production. He pointed out a 
new milk production record of 40,000 
lbs. 2X milking in 305 days and* abo a 
new wheat hybrid yielding 200 bu. per 
acre. All of this will be necessary it we 
are to feed the world's increasing popu- 

Another area he talked about w is the 
availability of land in the future Kach 
day 4,000 acres of land in the United 
States is being converted into housing, 
highways and industrial development. He 
also discussed the problem'* future far- 
mers will face regarding pollution. 

He further said that today's farmers 
have to be much more sp'eialized in one 
particular area of production. Farmers 
are also working today in terms of big 

One final area he covered was our 
responsibility in helping underdeveloped 
areas to come up to our standards of liv- 
ing by teaching them the newest techno- 
logical advances. 

Gary Butter and Mr. Smith should be 
commended for acquiring such a dyna- 
mic speaker. 

Reply to Hermits and a Messy Campus 

December 17, 1970 

In reply to "Hermits and a Messy Campus," by Mr. David E. Bcnner in the 

December 16, 1970 issue of The Furrow, I feel I must express a few disagreements. 

I quote Dr. Joshua Feldstcin from the 1970 Cornicopia — "Tempora mutantur et 
nos mutamus et illi — Times change and we change with it! Yes, Mr. Benner, times 
DO change as do styles and education. 

Long hair and sideburns are part of the changing times; they are just a different 
style from twenty years ago. You say that "There seem to be a goodly number of 
students on campus at present looking like hermits and tramps." This statement is a 
gross exaggeration! A stereotype has developed in the past few years associating 
"longhairs" with drugs, promiscuity and campus unrest. One does not need long hair 
to use drugs or to start a riot. A student comes" to college to continue his education. 
Appearances should be up to the individual student who is selling his brains, not 
his person. Again — Dr. Fcldstein "... encourage evolutionary change ..." Please 
open y<Tur mind for if it closes it ceases to exist! 

It is not the students' "responsibility to decide such matters" as cuts. Students 
who pay their tuition do have a responsibility to investigate and suggest changes in 
any rule that exists. This is the students' school just as much (if not more) as the 
Administrator's. The proposed attendance policy is an extremely feasible plan. 

It is the lecturer's job not only to lecture material, but to be able to get the infor- 
mation across to tin students. I am sure that anyone who can deliver a good lecture 
will have no problem with (lass attendance. To quote the Dean of the College at 
Susquehanna — "since the adoption of this attendance policy, two vears ago, there 

Dr. George E. Turner once quoted Dr. Niebuhr who writes, "May you have the 
serenity to accept what cannot Ix- changed; courage to change what should In- 
changed, and wisdom to distinguish the one from t!,t other." 

I must end with a quote by Dr. Tibor Pelle: "Show patience and understanding 
toward vour fellow man." Try it and you just may find that the world will lie a 
better place.

The "Maidenhair Tree", or Ginkgo, is 
a tree which has been suddenly thrown 
into the spotlight at D.V.C., due to the 
vandalism inflicted upon it January 8. 
Perhaps a bit of enlightenment to stu- 
dents not majoring in the Plant Sciences 
might illustrate the concern expressed by 
the plant-men. 

The Maidenhair Tree is a handsome, 
deciduous tree, with unusual fan-shaped 
leaves. It can grow up to a height of 120 
ft. It was imported from China about 
two centuries ago. Its growth is sparse, 
and it has upreaching branches. The 
leaves are its chief beauty; they arc little 
fans with conspicuous radiating veins 
and an undulate outer rim. In autumn the 
tree turns a glorious, clear yellow. The 
Maidenhair is the only living species of 
the order Ginkgoales, which flourished in 
the Mesozoic Era. Scarcely any other 
plant so completely fulfills the term "liv- 
ing fossil". The common name refers to 
the resemblance of the leaves to those of 
the Adiantum, the Maidenhair fern. The 
Ginkgo is dioecious, i.e., there are both 
male, and female trees— the females bear- 
ing a foul-smelling fruit and comprising 
the majority of Ginkgoes on campus. The 
Ginkgo is almost totally unknown in a 
wild state and is very tolerant to most 
forms of pollution. For this reason, it is 
a popular street tree, especially in Wash- 
ington, D. C., and its value as a lawn 
tree is well recognized.

The Aggies avenged a last year loss 
to Moravian, Wednesday nite, by hand- 
ing the Creyhounds their 4th loss of the 
year, 25-9. After Aggie, Bob Grice, was 
decisioned in a tough match by Mora- 
vian's Staffier, Ron Jennings got things 
rolling for Delaware Valley. His decision 
over Santee deadlocked the score, $*3. 
George Cummins and John Hopper elec- 
trified a big crowd with successive pins 
over Sinek and Stanglen respectively. 
Cummins pin coming in :34 and Hop- 
per's gem in 1:34. The lead never 
changed hands. After Marty Gould was 
edged in his decision, Joe Thonus fought 
back to make the Aggie advantage, 16-6. 
Brent Franklin then was outdualed by 
Long of Moravian to get the Greyhounds 
near double figures, 16-9. It never hap- 
pened. Ray Johnson, Larry Eisenhart, 
and John Kolb made sure of that. The 
Aggies are now 3-3-1.

Coach Floyd Marshall's grapplers 
were faced with one of the year's 
closest matches Saturday afternoon 
against an always tough Susque- 
hanna University squad. Neither 
team controlled the match until the 
final two bouts of the evening. 
Delaware Valley came out on top 
of the bitterly fought contest, 17-16. 

In the 118 pound weight class 
it was Rick Bechel of Susquehanna 
decisioning Bob Grice of the Ag- 
gies. Ron Jennings of DVC and Bill 
Bechel drew at the 126 pound 
weight class, 2-2. George Cummins 
of the Aggies knotted the team 
score at 5 by completely controling 
Mike Ramage for a 10-0 decision. 
Susquehanna added 6 more team 
points with back to back decisions 
by Dave Richman and Randy 
Baily. Hard hustling freshman Joe 
Thonus drew the Aggies within 3 
points by oppressing Joe Schiller, 
7-0. Brent Franklin kept the ball 
rolling at 167 by outlasting Brian 
Miller, 8-5. This effort again dead- 
locked the score at 11. Then Ray 
Johnson scored what was to' be the 
decisive victory for the Aggie mat- 
men. He defeated John Carey, 10-3. 
In the 190 pound weight class cap- 
tain Larry Eisenhart iced the Aggie 
victory cake with a 13-4 win over 
Ed Horn. And finally it was Gay 
of Susquehanna pinning John Kolb 
at 1:39. 

The victory boosted the green 
and gold above the .500 mark. They 
are now, 4-3-1. Delaware Valley 
will host Rider College on February

Wilkes 71-69 

Jan. 23 Don Sechler's 24 points 
and Greg Teeple's season high of 
21 points wasn't enough as the Wil- 
kes Colonels downed the Aggies by 
a 71-69 score. 

The Aggies piaye •! sluggish ball 
in the first half, but slowly nipped 
away at the Wilkes lead, until fin- 
ally tieing the score 67 all with 48 
seconds left on Greg Teeple's buc- 
ket, but then Wilkes guard Jay 
Reimel converted four straight free 
throws in the remaining seconds to 
give Wilkes the 71-69 victory. 

The team record is now 7-5 over- 
all and 3-2 in the MAC. 



Jan. 23 For the second straight 
year the Aggie wrestlers scored a 
victory over Dickinson in another 
head to head battle of the brother 
coaches. Dickinson's coach Bob 
Marshall, brother of our own Floyd 
Marshall, is a former Big Ten 
wrestling champ. He was undefeat- 
ed three consecutive years at Pur- 
due and was twice awarded All- 
America status. 

This year's score (27-11) was 
somewhat more decisive then last 
season's 17-16 decision. 

The Aggies jumped off to a big 
lead as Grice, Jennings, and Cum- 
mins scored victories for an 11-0 
lead, but Dickinson came right 
back to win the next three and tie 
the score. 


The Aggies then swept the next 
four bouts as Franklin, Johnson,

Feb. 2 The Aggie basketball 
team, 9-6 and 5-3 in the MAC, scor- 
ed a key 86-75 conference victory 
over Moravian College. 

The opening minutes saw both 
teams score evenly. The Aggies 
managed to build a seven point 
lead 47-40 with 3:21 remaining in 
the half on Frank Richardson's buc- 
ket, but the team failed to score in 
the remaining minutes as Moravian 
came back. The score at intermis- 
sion was 47-46. 

At the start of the second half 
both teams again scored evenly and 
exchanged one and two point mar- 
gins. Then with 11:23 showing on 
the clock senior guard Bob McEn- 
tee put in a jumper to put the Ag- 
gies on top for good (65-63). 

Bob McEntee, Bill Dever and 
Ralph White provided most of the 
scoring punch in the remaining 
minutes, but the defense played 
the major role as the Aggies took 
advantage of the many Moravian 

The team displayed a balanced 
scoring attack as Sechler (16), Mc- 
Entee (15), Shelly (12), Teeple 
(10) and White (10) all scored in 
double figures. Sechler was also the 
top rebounder in the game with 23. 
Moravian's Jan Kapcala was the 
game's high scorer with 22 points.

Feb. 6 Philadelphia Textile, defending 
MAC Northern Div. and National Small 
College champion, defeated the Aggies 
by a 70-60 score before another paclced 
house at Neumann gym. 

The Aggies started off quickly as they 
scored the first five points with Teeple 
and McEntee doing the scoring. The Tex- 
tile Rams were also held scoreless for the 
first 2:11. 

Textile toqk the lead with 14:40 re- 
maining on Bruce Shively's bucket. The 
Rams then started to establish the lead 
that the Aggies couldn't overcome the 
remainder of the evening. The score at 
the half was 36-26. 

In the second half the Green and Gold 
played evenly with the Rams. At the 
start of the half the Aggies mounted a 
comeback, on key baskets by Sechler, 
Teeple and McEntee, but couldn't cut 
the margin to less then five points. 

The game was a tough defensive battle 
all the way. If luck is with the Aggies, 
they may get another shot at Textile in 
the MAC playoffs. 

Don Sechler again topped the Aggie 
scorers with 23 points. Don scored 14 
of the team's last 16 points. Greg Teeple 
scored 16 pts. Textile's Bruce Shively, 
who provecf to be the thorn in the Ag- 
gies' side, was the game's high scorer 
with 26 pts. Textile is now 14-3 overall 
and 8-0 in MAC action while the Aggies 
are 9-7 and 5-4.

Hits 38 

by Lou Hegyes 

Jan. 30 The Aggie basketball 
team traveled to Wifliamsport, Pa., 
to defeat the Warriors of Lycoming 
by a 91-80 score. 

Captain Don Sechler posted a 
career high of 38 points as he hit 
on 13 of 23 attempts from the floor 
and also 12 of 13 free throws. Rich 
Henninger was Lycomings high 
man with 31 points. 

Lycoming (2-11) put a scare into 
the Aggies as they played a good 
first half and led at intermission 

In the second half the Aggies 
exploded and outscored the War- 
riors 9-2 in the first few minutes 
and continued to score freely as 
they burned the nets for 54 points 
in the half. 

Sechler got help in the scoring 
column from Bob McEntee with 13 
points and frosh Gary Stoudt, who 
added 12 points. 

Big Don, with 19, was again the 
leading rebounder, but Ralph 
White and Frank Richardson haul- 
ed down 22 rebounds between 
them to add to the Aggies board 

The teams record is now 8-6 over- 
all and 4-3 in the league. 





Lou's Views 

by Lou Hegyes 
Recently two of Delaware Val- 
ley's most prolific basketball scorers 
in recent years have reached new 
scoring plateaus. 

Don Sechler, the 6'11" senior bas- 
ketball captain, cracked the all- 
time scoring mark of 1482 points in 
the victory over Susquehanna at 
Selinsgrove, Pa. 

The previous record was held by 
Richard Prins '58, who now drops 
into second place on the scoring 

Bob McEntee, another senior, 
has also reached a new scoring 
mark. Bob, literally playing in 
Sechler's shadow for the last four 
years, topped the 1,000 point mark. 
He accomplished the feat in the 
second half of the Aggies 91-62 vic- 
tory over Washington College. Bob 
can reach the 3rd spot in the 
coveted list of scorers with only 
about 11 more points needed dur- 
ing the remainder of the season. 

The following are the 1,000 point 
club members: 

Don Sechler 71 1677 

Richard Prins '58 1482 

Bill Eisel '69 1052 

Robert McEntee 71 1042 

Dave Bjornson '59 1022 

According to the stats of Jan. 23, 
DVC ranked third in the nation be- 
hind South Alabama 802 and Au- 
gustana (S.D.) .801—779 for small 
colleges, in free throw percentage 
with a .776 average. Don Sechler 
was listed as the nation's leading 
free throw shooter with a .933 
average (56 for 60). Captain Don 
Sechler was listed as 9th scorer with 
a 20.3 average and 2nd top re- 
bounder in the MAC stats released 
Jan. 17.

War Games 

This is your own Ram corre- 
spondent, John Doe, bringing you 
the Eighth Annual Vietnam War 
Games, live from North Vietnam. 

As you probably already know, 
this is the eighth consecutive year 
for the war games to be held in 
Vietnam, with the United States 
hoping for a victory this year, to 
compensate for seven consecutive 
losses. And now on to the games. 

Bill Shows, a U. S. Marine Pri- 
vate, is now starting the games by 
carrying the symbolic torch to- 
wards the the gooks' huts; once he 
has started the straw huts on fire, 
the games are officially started. 

The games are started, and the 
huts are burning now with many 
gooks running out in every direc- 
tion to avoid the massive inferno. 
The first event in today's schedule 
is the hand grenade toss. They're 
now throwing grenades at the 
gooks, and a new record was just 
set — seven with one grenade. This 
will definitely be a new first for the 

The next event is the marksman 
award. Using the new M-16, the 
U. S. should win easily, keeping 
their 2-0 lead over the Vietnamese. 

They're really going to town now, 
shooting up a real storm. As I look 
around, I can see the gooks drop- 
ping like flies, a real victory for tne 
U. S., making it a definite 2-0 lead 
for the U. S. with only four events 
left to go. 

To save time, we will skip the 
next three events, (with the Viet- 
namese gaining only one victory in 
guerilla warfare), and get down to 
the main event of the day, fixed 

This is by far the most spectacu- 
lar event of the day, involving only 
the expert skill of the individual in 
hand-to-hand combat against his 
opponent. But by now the only 
Vietnamese left to compete against 
are the women and children; but 
what does this matter, since these 
are war games being played under 
war conditions, and the games 
must go on. 


Well, you guessed it; it was an- 
other easy victory, and by far the 
most grotesque. But that's war, so 
don't let it get you down, for may- 
be one of these days you'll get your 
chance, and maybe then we'll win 
one of these games. However for 
now it's been another real victory 
for the opponents with the score 
21 killed and 24 wounded for the 
U.S., and 142 killed and 200 
wounded for the Vietnamese. 

When will the games ever be

Dog Food 

The wild horse, a proud symbol 
of arrogant independence, a crea- 
ture which thrives on pure, raw 
freedom — a creature which would 
die without it, an animal to which 
man owes his very life, is now in 
danger of being killed off by a 
world which is so blinded by its 
own greed that it can't even see 
the wrong in what it's doing. And 
for what?!! — For a miserable $.06 
a pound!! That's the going rate for 
turning one of Gods noblest of 
creatures into dog food. 

According to the latest figures* 
there are only about 16,000 wild 
mustangs left, though once there 
were millions. Once their huge 
herds dotted the western plains — 
now they only gather in small 
bands. They are not covered by 
any Game Laws, so they are hunt- 
ed in every way imaginable. Some 
states say Mustangers can't use 
Jeeps to run them down, but can- 
ning companies pay $50.00 for 
every dead horse they bring in — 
and they can get more with a Jeep 
so they use them anyway. Some 
even go so far as to poison water 
holes, and then use a pick-up to 
gather up the bodies. 

All this has got to stop! Conser- 
vation laws have to be passed to 
protect these animals, and it's you 
who has to do it. Don't say "I don't 
give a damn" ... do something! 
Write a letter to the Secretary of 
the Interior (C. B. Morton — Dept. 
of Interior — "C" Street between 
18th and 19th Streets N.W., Wash- 
ington, D. C. 20240) and tell him 
what you think. Demand that these 
laws be passed! Do something to 
help this world . . . because it's

Develop A 

Surely every student at D. V. C. 
has thought about a Student Cen- 
ter at one time or another. But for 
lack of interest and due to the pres- 
ence of our old friend — Apathy, we 
have settled for a temporary "Stu- 
dent Center" that really doesn't 
have that much to offer and which 
also faces the possibility of being 
moved or demolished. So that 
dream of a permanent Student 
Center is just a "maybe" of the fu- 



, Inspection 

And Such 

Is "room inspection" routine 
search or selective harassment? 
Most evidence would indicate that 
the latter is more appropriate. Ask 
yourself just which students have 
been openly dissident toward ad- 
ministrative policies, and then find 
out whose rooms were recently 
searched. Coincidence? 

It becomes increasingly evident 
that it is this college's (college?) 
intent to purge potential dissidents. 
The extent to which this crusade 
has been carried out reflects a pos- 
sible psychotic paranoia on the part 
of policy makers here. 

The subject of "room inspections" 
raises related questions. Does the 
student have any privacy whatso- 
ever? Is the personal property of 
the student respected at this "in- 
stitution?" Does suspicion warrant 
destruction of dorm room prop- 
erty? Should the student be held 
responsible for damage resulting 
from "room inspection?" Personal 
experience necessitates a unani- 
mous negative response. 

A few more questions, ^re not 
representatives or the Student Gov- 
ernment required to be present 
during "room inspection?' Is not 
the entire concept of room search 
degrading and demoralizing to the 
student body? Could it h« possible 
that administrators are securing 
their positions by "making names' 
for themselves? 

In the opinion of many students, 
this college's administration and, 
indirectly, its Board of Trustees are 
involved in a campaign of blatant 
intimidation against dissident stu- 
dents, through actions such as 
room search, in order to effect the 
removal or withdrawal of those stu- 
dents from this "institution." 

It would be a mistake on the part 
of the administration to assume 
that the students will treat this 
matter lightly.

GM Seeks 

The Project on Corporate Responsibi- 
lity has sent letters to over 600 univer- 
sities (including yours) asking them to 
support Campaign GM - Round II, an 
effort to make American corporations 
more responsive to society's needs. (A 
copy of the letter and the Project's 
proxy statement are attached). 

Specifically, the Project is asking the 
universities to vote their GM stock in 
favor of three new shareholder resolu- 
tions that the Project will introduce at 
GM's annual meeting on May 21 in 
Detroit. If adopted, the proposals would 
have a fundamental impact on GM's 
decision-making process. 

The first proposal would transform 
the now closed selection of directors 
into a real election simply by reauiring 
GM to list on its proxy candidates 
nominated by shareholder petitions; only 
candidates nominated by management 
are listed there now. All shareholders 
thus would have the opportunity to make 
meaningful nominations and to choose 
among opposing nominees. The second 
proposal would give three of GM's most 
important constituencies — consumers, 
dealers, and employees — a voice in 
GM's decision-making process by per- 
mitting them to participate in the selec- 
tion of three GM directors. The third 
proposal would require GM to publish 
in its annual report hard statistics on its 
progress on auto-pollution control, auto- 
safety, and minority hiring, thereby pro- 
viding shareholders, constituents, and the 
public with the minimum information 
needed to effectively evaluate whether 
GM is meeting its public responsibilities. 

The Project, a public interest center 
in Washington, D. C. believes that giant 
corporations, epitomized by General 
Motors, are virtually private govern- 
ments; their decisions fundamentally af- 
fect the lives of millions of people in 
areas ranging from product safety to em- 
ployment discrimination to environmental 
pollution. Yet those decisions are made, 
far removed from public view, by a nar- 
row group of self-chosen men — isolated 
from the people their decisions affect and 
insulated from the public pressures that 
shape the decisions of society's other im- 
portant policymakers. The Project, 
through Campaign GM and its other acti- 
vities, seeks to subject corporate deci- 
sions to public scrutiny and to make 
corporate decision-makers directly ac- 
countable to the people affected by cor- 
porate action.

Soil Conservation 
Club Elections 

At a meeting on February 16, the Soil 
Conservation Club held its annual elec- 
tions, and the following officers have 
been chosen. Wayne B. Kneer succeeded 
Joe Kershner as the club's president. 
The vice president's post went to Jeff 
Segan, secretary-treasurer to Eric Scheib, 
and the public relations office to Angelo 

All students are cordially invited to a 
joint meeting between the Soil Conser- 
vation Club and the Ornamental Horti- 
culture Club to be held on March 2, at 
7:30 p.m., in room 215, Mandell Science 
Building. The guest speaker will be John 
Rahenkanp, a landscape architect, who 
will explain the ecological value of subur- 
ban housing developments retaining the 
lieauty of agricultural and woodland 

The Soil Conservation and Agronomy 
Clubs will hold a banquet on March 25, 
at the Collegcville Inn. 

In campaigning for the Campaign GM 
proposals, the Project will concentrate on 
institutions, such as universities, founda- 
tions, union pension funds, banks, mutual 
funds, churches, and insurance companies 
(who together own over 40* of GM's 
stock), urging them to make use of their 
power as major shareholders in GM to 
make GM more responsive to public 
needs. The Project will also campaign 
among the constituents of those institu- 
tions — church members, university stu- 
dents, teachers and alumni, bank deposi- 
tors, mutual fund investors, insurance 
policy holders, union members — urging 
them to insist on their institution's sup- 
port. A major goal of Round II is to 
crack what it sees as an unspoken al- 
liance between corporate management 
and institutional leadership that has for 
too long permitted management the lux- 
ury of making decisions without chal- 
lenge and policies without review. 

The Project is particularly focusing on 
universities, for it believes that they 
have a special obligation to consider the 
social as well as financial stake they 
have in corporations they own. Cam- 
paign committees have already formed 
on several campuses - Stanford, Univer- 
sity of North Carolina, University of 
Michigan, MIT, Harvard, Cornell, Uni- 
versity of Montana, Wittenberg, Colum- 
bia and University of Pennsylvania, to 
name a few — to devise ways of making 
sure that the university's vote on Cam- 
paign GM is responsive to the wishes of 
the entire university community. Some 
students are organizing referendums; 
others are planning debates and teach- 
ins. And some are working through uni- 
versity councils or through special com- 
mittees that have been set up to re- 
evaluate the university's investment 

Last year, the Project compaigned for 
a proposal to add three public interest 
directors to the GM Board and a pro- 
posal to establish a Shareholder Com- 
mittee on Corporate Responsibility to 
review GM's public policies. As a re- 
sult of that campaign, many people for 
the first time began to consider the 
social impact of corporate decisions. The 
campaign precipitated intensive debates 
within shareholding institutions, leading 
many to reassess their investment criteria. 
It attracted considerable public and 
shareholder support, including the votes 
of several universities. 

Since the close of Round I, GM has 
(1) appointed to its Board Dr. Leon Sul- 
livan, a black clergyman committed to 
making GM "more sensitive to human 
needs" and (2) established a permanent 
Public Policy Committee to inquire "into 
all phases of GM's operations that re- 
late to matters of public policy." The 
Project believes that these reforms can 
be given effective meaning only by con- 
tinued pressure on General Motors and 
other large corporations. 

Agronomy Club 

The last meeting of the Agronomy 
Club was held on Thursday, February 
11, 1971. It was a short meeting in 
which elections for the various club of- 
fices were held. Nominations were made 
for President at the previous meeting; 
Scott Cook was nominated. At the elec- 
tion Chuck Volpe was nominated, and 
short speeches were given about their 
plans for the club in the future. Chuck 
Volpe won the election. The vice presi- 
dent's position was won by Scott Cook; 
the office of treasurer was won by Gary 
Kravetsky. The office of secretary was 
won by David Kindig; Corresponding 
secretary, Eric Scheib; Intramurals Re- 
presentative, Bob Kulp; Activities 
Chairman, George Clippinger; Inter Club 
Council, David Kindig. With these new 
officers the Agronomy Club is looking 
forward to a very prosperous year.

Chess Club Mass Rally 


The college chess club has now be- 
come a recognized campus organization, 
its constitution having been approved 
recently by the student government. It 
represents a radical departure from the 
usual student organization,' for faculty 
members of the college participate with 
the students, having the same rights, 
such as voting, holding office, and tak- 
ing part in the club's tournaments. 

At a recent meeting, election of of- 
ficers was held. Edward Hall became 
the President, Mike Noble was elected 
Vice President and Treasurer, Richard 
Osman became Secretary and Team Cap- 
tain, and Dr. Goldberg was named 
Tournament Director. 

A tournament to determine the rank- 
ing of players within the club is now 
almost over. Phil Cole won the tourna- 
ment and assumes the first board, while 
the player he beat in the finals, Richard 
Osman, takes board two. Board three was 
won by Dr. Allison, and board four, by 
Dr. French. 

It is hoped that the student members 
of the club will have meets against two 
area high schools, Hatboro-Horsham and 
Central Bucks East. Both schools have 
excellent chess teams and would provide 
stiff competition for our college team. 

The chess club meets every Wednes- 
day afternoon at 4:00 in room 208 of 
Mandell Hall. Any student or faculty 
member wishing to join is cordially in- 
vited to attend these meetings.

Who Says That 

There Is 
Nothing To Do! 

Who says that there is nothing to do 
Friday nights? Effective immediately, 
another activity is being added to DVC's 
Friday night life. Conrad Adami, the 
manager of DVC's Intramural Bowling 
League, has negotiated a special arrange- 
ment for bowling rates for non-league 
bowling. Mr. Mike Mignogno, the 
manager of Key Bowling Lanes in Doy- 
lestown, has agreed to charge only $2.00 
to any DVC student and his or her date 
after 9:30 p.m. whenever a mixer is held 
on Friday nights. The $2.00 price in- 
cludes bowling shoes for both bowlers 
and three games of howling for each 
person. These discounted rates will be 
charged upon presentation of your DVC 
ID card. Mr. Mignogno also said that 
students arriving as late as midnight 
would have sufficient time to bowl three 
games before closing, and that all DVC 
students bowling at any other time would 
be charged $1.00 for three games of 
bowling and bowling shoes, and their 
dates would be charged the full retail

Students of Delaware Valley College: 

There is a list here at DVC which has been growing all year. This list is one 
which doesn't warrant praise or accomplishment. This list is the damage report con- 
cerning college and student property— your property in either case. I can not answer 
why this list has grown to such a length this particular year, but I do know that 
it affects every person who is in any way connected with DVC, including you the 

When any college property is damaged or stolen, who pays for it? I suppose we 
could easily say the college itself for it pays the bill. But who really pays the bill? 
Each of you pays a great deal of money to attend this college. That money, your 
money, pays for the functioning of DVC in all aspects. A professor's salary or 
damaged property makes no difference; it is your money. 

Damage affects you directly in your wallet. It also affects you in another way. 
When you pay for something you expect to receive the most for your money. Are 
you receiving the most for your money when it must be used to pay for the immature 
acts of theft and damage? All of you agree that there is room for improvement at 
DVC in many areas. Improvements cost money. Instead of your spending money for 
improvements, that same money must be used to replace damaged or stolen property. 
We are not progressing, merely attempting to sustain what we have now. So when 
an improvement is not made due to cost, whom do we blame? Whom does it affect? 

What do these thefts and damage show? What kind of impression do they make? 
It shows simply the immature, uncaring, unconcerned attitude of a small percentage 
of our students. It takes only a few to spoil things for the entire student body. When 
a proposal is made to the Administration and the Board of Trustees about expand- 
ing the responsibilities of the student as in the open-door policy and alcoholic bever- 
ages, what do they see? Do they see students who act maturely, who have respect, 
who can think? So what happens to the proposal? Whom does it affect? 

Most of you probably remain unconcerned about this problem. As long as you 
are not directly involved or immediately being affected, then you remain uncon- 
cerned. You hear of your neighbor's tape player being stolen, the room next to 
you being broken into, the student store being robbed, the ghinkos being girdled, 
but none involves you directly. And when your buddy is involved in causing one or 
more of the incidents, you say, "... well, he's my buddy; I can't expose him." But 
what makes you think he wouldn't do it to you, wouldn't make you a victim also? 
How far can you trust him? And when you become a victim, whom does it affect? 

Which is better, your preventive interest, protecting yourself and your money, 
or waiting until you become a victim? 

The problem is real and is growing. Solving it is in your hands. If you neglect 
it, whom does it affect?

The most important issue dis- 
cussed in the February 9, 1971, 
meeting of the Food Industry Club 
was "A ' Day and the various prob- 
lems which usually arise on this 
occasion. The most severe problem 
in the club is getting the members 
to participate in exhibits and to put 
in work hours. Many members will 
sign up for work hours and never 
show up. The club is going to try 
to alleviate this problem by insist- 
ing that those who sign up for work 
hours actually do work. It was de- 
cided, in order to promote enthus- 
iasm, that the members be allowed 
to have their dates work with them, 
and have the time which she works 
counted toward work hours. 

At the February 23, 1971, club 
meeting we were fortunate to have 
a guest speaker. Our guest was Mr. 
Fred Myers, a representative of the 
Kelco Co., located in San Diego, 
Calif. The company processes sea 
kelp into various industrial — and 
consumer — food products. Mr. My- 
ers discussed the methods of har- 
vesting and processing, as well as 
the wide variety of uses applicable 
for the finished kelp derivative 

The club banquet will be held at 
the Latin Casino. The show will 
feature either the Temptations or 
Smokey Robinson, depending on 
the decided date.

Lou's Views 

by Lou Hegyes 

Many thanks to the five graduat- 
ing seniors on the basketball team. 
Don Sechler, Bob McEntee, Greg 
Teeple, Tom Wentzel and Frank 
Richardson have supplied Aggie 
basketball fans with countless 
thrills throughout the last four 

Don Sechler, with his 27 points 
against Wagner, broke his own sea- 
sonal high of 468 points set in 1968- 
69. The all-time scoring leader fin- 
ished his career with 1,784 points. 
His single game scoring high of 38 
points was set this season against 
Lycoming and his rebounding rec- 
ord of 28 was against Muhlenberg 
during the 1968-69 season. "Sec" is 
also the nation's leading foul shoot- 
er with 101 for 112. In all Don 
holds 18 Delaware Valley records. 

Bob McEntee finshed his career 
as the third leading scorer at DVC 
with 1,069 points.

Improvements For Our Store 

by B. Lee Cornwell 

In this project I will discuss several pertinent issues concerning the D.V.C. Student 
Store. These issues are centered around the following: 

1. Utilizing the existing space to hetter advantage. 

2. Changes that could he made to make the operation more efficient. 

3. Changing the merchandise arrangements*to facilitate efficiency and more sales. 

4. Revising the store operating hours. 

On the following page is the floor plan of the Student Store as it is now. At the 
end of my review, I will incorporate a revised diagram with my suggested changes. 
In this manner I hope to better explain my position. 

The D.V.C. Student Store has been operating for several years. In my observa- 
tions thus far, it seems to be organized in an extremely inefficient and careless 
manner. Each year the store location changes, as well as the hours of operations. 
This system cannot be used to any degree and be expected to produce profits and 
returning customers. 

During my interview with one of the store workers at a recent lunch time, the 
store had only one customer in a time span of 20 minutes. It appears to be rather 
ironic due to the fact that the lunch hours should be the busiest time. 

I feel that due to the poor organization this is allowed to occur. Because no 
"good" image has been projected over the years, students fail to realize that a 
student store even exists. The lack of customers could also be due to the fact that 
the store is moved from place to place so frequently. At one time, the Student store 
was part of the book store, but it now is separate and has its head-quarters in an 
obscure corner of Ullman Hall basement. As can be seen, this is no place from which 
to establish a going business. I am very aware that the funds of the store are ex- 
tremely limited, but there are changes that could be made to produce more profits. 
If a new location is not feasible, changes should be made at once. 

In making suggestions for changing the floor plan, one must realize that little or 
no cash would be needed to complete the job. First of all, the entrance door should 
be hinged as to allow the door to swing into the hall. This would allow for more 
valuable wall space to be procured. 

Next, space A, (as marked on the diagram) should be done away with. This 
seems to be a wasted corner. The wall in front of this space could be removed, and 
about 30 sq. ft. of additional floor space would be available. Proceeding around the 
store, one can observe an unused display shelf. This shows very poor merchandising 
procedures. Here, too, is a card display which hides valuable space. Next, an unused 
counter comes into the picture. Here is wasted display space. The only other major 
structural change that should be completed is that of changing the check-out counter. 

As can be seen, the cash register is located some distance from the main counter. 
Counter B should be removed and a different arrangement set up. Thi? can be 
observed on the revised diagram. By doing this, more open floor space is available. 
Also, the cash register is now in a more accessible spot. Needless steps to it have" 
been done away with. This could also allow a serve-yourself theory of operations. 
Browsing space has now been incorporated. This could facilitate a more of an im- 
pulse buying. 

I definitely feel that allowing the customers to move freely about the 'lore would 
do more good than harm. Because the store is small, the worker on duty could keep 
a close eye on potential shop-lifters. This would allow the customers to get a closer 
look at many of the items. This is the approach that is needed to sell many items, 
such as college mugs and shirts. As it stands now, the customer cannot observe the 
merchandise as they should be able to do. 

The next step in the changing of the store is to rearrange much of the merchan- 
dise. As it stands now, the available items are not even grouped. For instance, all 
the stationery products should be displayed in one section of the store. A good place 
for this would be on the unused display shelf. Also, all the toilet articles should be 
grouped in an open display. The razor blades should be placed with the shaving 
cream and soap instead of in a corner by themselves. 

The stock on the shelves on the far wall should be removed to a central store- 
room for all incoming items. This would allow for more display space as well as 
better inventory control. All goods would then have to come from this central storage 
room and could be inventoried with more ease. 

It can be observed from the diagram that the candy is located in an extremely 
poor spot for a so-called impulse item. This display should be moved to the cash 
register counter. Here, also, could be located some of the other impulse items. This 
would include cigarettes and cigars. 

I feel by making these simple changes in the basic structure of the Student Store 
more efficiency can be realized. This could result in time saved and of course 
greater profits. 

Perhaps one of the biggest problems of the Student Store is the operating hours. 
As of now, the store is open only four hours a day.( 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. - 
7 p.m.) This is hardly enough time for any retail store to be open. These short hours 
not only provide an inconvenience for the students but cut down on profitable time 
of the store itself.

(Continued from page 1) 

It's tough to believe, but there 
is someone working for a perma- 
nent Student Center. To the sur- 
prise of many, Mrs. Toneau, secre- 
tary of The Alumni Association, has 
been hard at work since July in at- 
tempts to raise funds for the new 
Student Center. She reports that 
this campaign has been much of 
her job tnis year, as it will be next 
year also. "Everyday I'm writing 
letters and pushing, hoping to get 
it up and over." This year, in its 
annual Alumni - giving campaign, 
the Alumni were asked to channel 
their contributions to one cause — 
The Student Center. 

Thus far the Alumni alone have 
raised approximately $11,500 to- 
wards a permanent Student Center. 
Mrs. Toneau states that their rea- 
soning is as follows: "The Alumni 
are doing everything they can be- 
cause it was once their dream too." 
But they can't be expected to bear 
the burden alone. 

Mrs. Toneau feels that the rea- 
son for the lagging contributions is 
that "It's hard to get action be- 
cause everyone means to contrib- 
ute, but they just put it off. There 
aren't very many wealthy alumni, 
so it's the five- and ten-dollar con- 
tributions that help." But as for the 
students, even just a dollar from 
everyone would help. 

The more interest that is shown, 
that's all the more people that 
would wake up and get to work. 
The class of 70 unselfishly got the 
ball rolling via a gift of $1,000 to- 
wards the Student Center. Mean- 
while the Alumni Association has 
been accepting contributions from 
its own ranks, friends, parents, fac- 
ulty and students. Shouldn't we as 
the students (who eventually, if 
not now, will benefit from this 
drive) lend a hand? It's a dream 
that so many Del Val students be- 
fore you had hoped to be a reality 
in their time. We all can help either 
through contributions to the Alum- 
ni Office or by giving our help to 
Mrs. Toneau, in Lasker Hall. It has 
been estimated that the building 
will cost approximately $400,000. 
That's quite a goal. But just $5 will 
buy 75 bricks towards this goal. 
Won't you convert your interest 
into action and help us develop the 
Student Center dream into a real- 



Is this the new student parking lot?

(Continued from page 3) 

Possibly new trial hours could be set up consisting of hours of 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. 
I definitely feel that the extra lahor cost would pay off in profits in a properly man- 
aged store. 

Before any of these changes are tested, the advertising campaign of the store 
should be strengthened. This could consist of bulletin board advertising as well as 
ads in the college newspaper. The Student Store must develop a good image and 

The Student Store could also be open at college functions. Special times could 
lx- scheduled for the openings. Football and basketball games provide an excellent 
chance to sell college oriented goods such as banners, mugs, etc. 

In this report I have assumed several facts. These an 1 'that the working capital 
is limited and that another location for the store is not available at the present time. 

I feel that by incorporating some or all of these ideas would vastly improve the 
general store operations. 


Aggies Over 

by Lou Hegyes 

Playing one of the better games 
all season the Aggie basketball 
team defeated a tall PMC team by 
a 73-57 score. 

The Pioneers came into the con- 
est with a 14-8 record, but the ball 
handling and defense skills of 
guards Bill Dever and Dan Guers 
killed what hope PMC might have 

Captain Don Sechler was high 
man in the game with 26 points. 
Greg Teeple (21 pts.) and Frank 
Richardson ( 16 pts. ) supplied am- 
ple assistance for "Sec" and the two 
tiny guards. 

The largest lead of the first half 
and the game ( 20 pts. ) came with 
just 18 seconds on the clock when 
Bill Dever put in two to put the 
score at 42-22. Frank Richardson 
and PMC's Wally Rice led the first 
scorers with 15 points each. The 
half ended at 42-24. 

In the second half the Aggies 
maintained the lead with Sechler, 
Teeple and Dever doing most of 
the scoring. 

Philadelphia's Wally Rice led 
PMC with 22 points on ten field 
goals and two free throws. 


































































Broncs Stampede 

by Ed Biddle 
Mistakes proved to be the deci- 
sive factor last night as the visiting 
"Broncs" of Rider toppled the Del- 
aware Valley Aggies 23-11. 

The final team score certainly 
didn't indicate the suspense-filled 
closeness of each bout. The Aggies 
copped only three weighf classes 
but lost several disheartening bat- 
tles by 1 point. 

Statistics showed Coach Mar- 
shall's matmen really miscued on 
one important factor which may 
have lead to DVC's setback. The 
Broncs nailed down 13 takedowns 
as opposed to 7 by the Aggies. 

In the 118-pound class Bob Grice 
ran into pinner Rick Swanger and 
suffered a 21-3 loss. Mario Ianni 
added 3 more Rider team points 
by dumping the Aggies' Ron Jen- 
nings. 134-pounder George Cum- 
mins provea to the bipartisan Ag- 
gie crowd why he was the grap- 
pling ace of DVC. He put the 
green and gold on the score board 
by conquering Rich Haslet 8-4. 
Cummins' fine 8-1 record verifies 
his reputation as one of the MAC's 
top-rated light weights. The Val- 
ley's John Hopper was nipped 2-1 
by Woody Faust in the evening's 
lowest scoring battle. At 150 Jack 
Sheppard of Rider boost* d their 
lead by 9 when he drcisioned 
Marty Gould, 10-2. Joe Thonus 
fell 1 point short of the Broncs' co- 
captain, Toni Deangelo. The Bronc 
senior nosed out the Aggie 158- 
pounder 3-2 and thus maintained a 
15-3 team lead. Glen Anderson fur- 
thered Rider's win streak to four 
confecutive bouts by squeaking out 
a decision over Brent Franklin, 3-2. 
It took an obstinate effort by Aggie 
matman Ray Johnson to halt the 
opponent's win streak and he met 
the occasion by drubbing Joe 
Vento 3-1. Captain Larry Eisenhart 
injected another spark into the 
crowd by decking Dave Wise at 
1:51 of the third period. Eisenhart 
is presently the leading DVC pin- 
ner with 4 falls. Concluding the 
stampede, John Barfus pinned John 
Kolb at 2:38 of the second period.

So much has been said about 
basketball that the efforts of the 
wrestling team have been over- 

Coach Marshall's team finished 
the regular season with a 6-5-1 rec- 
ord that could have very easily 
been 9-3. The team lost a close 
match to Western Maryland by 
three points, lost to Glassboro by 
five and tied Lebanon Valley. 

Losing only heavyweight John 
Kolb by graduation the team shows 
much promise for the future. There 
are three juniors, four sophomores 
and two freshmen on the squad be- 
sides Kolb.

PMC this past weekend defeated 
Philadelphia Textile in basketball 
53-52. It was Textile's first Middle 
Atlantic Conference College Divi- 
sion loss. The Aggies lost to Textile 
70-60 but beat PMC 73-57. 

Freshman Dan Damweber has 
the distinction of being the last 
player ever to score in an inter- 
collegiate basketball game in Neu-

eight seconds remaining in DVC's 
106-85 victory over Wagner.

The five graduating seniors, Tom 
Wentzel, Bob McEntee, Greg Tee- 
pie, Frank Richardson and Captain 
Don Sechler, playing their last 
game for Delaware Valley, scored 
52 points between them to lead the 
Aggies over visiting Wagner by a 
106-85 score in the last intercol- 
legiate game to be played in Sidney 
Neumann gym. 

The Aggies closed Neumann's 
record book in fine fashion. Not 
only did they crack the 100 point 
mark, but also all twelve players 
on the team got into the scoring 

In the first half the Aggies built 
an eleven point lead but a Wagner 
rally cut the margin to three 
points. Sechler's 17 points and Bob 
Polinsky 's 9 led the Aggies in the 
first half. The score at intermission 
was 44-36. 

Don Sechler opened the second 
half with a ten point scoring spurt 
and from then on the Aggies 
couldn't be stopped as they con- 
trolled the boards ans' dominated 
the scoring. 

The Aggies built a commanding 
lead of 31 points ( S4-53.) when Bob 
Polinsky put in two with 7:37 on 
the clock. 

Freshman Dan Damweber also 
got into the spotlight. He scored 
the 100th point with 2:15 left and 
with eight seconds remaining be- 
came the last player to score in 
Neumann gym. The team's final 
record is 12-10.

Intramural Bowling 

Bowling has now become one of the fastest growing intramural sports during the 
past two years. The league has grown from fifteen bowlers at the end of the '68-69 
season to fifty bowlers for the 70-71 season. The bowling is held Thursday nights 
at 6:30 P.M., at the Key Bowling Lanes in Doylestown. There is competition on a 
weekly basis except for finals and vacations. 

Scores of 200 or more have been abundant during the bowling season with almost 
one-third of the league's bowlers attaining this achievement at least -pnce.

Thursday night, February 11, a 
record for intramural bowling was 
set. During the second game of the 
league's weekly three-game series, 
six games over 200 were bowled. 
These impressive scores were 
bowled by: 

Joe Solomon 230 

Ted Edzek 204 

Bruce Breitweiser 202 

Bill Reed 202 

Conrad Adami 201 

Dave Wright 200 

Robert Abramson, the league's 
secretary, rolled a score of 195 the 
second game that night which is, 
incidentally, the MINIMUM AV- 
ERAGE needed to join the Profes- 
sional Bowler's Association ( PBA ) . 

Also, during the second game, 
Steve Juliana rolled a game 76 pins 
over his average, which is one of 
the league's major accomplishments 
of the current season. 

In conclusion, it can be stated 
that February 11 was the most 
significant night for high scores 
throughout the league.

Delaware Valley posted its 6th wrest- 
ling win of the 1970-71' camjaign by 
handling Lincoln University, 34-6. John 
Grice, Ron Jennings, and George Cum- 
mins gave the Aggies a comfort .He edge, 
15-0, on successive forfeits. Tl meet got 
underway at 142 lbs. with Jofin Hopper 
decisioning Earl Denis 9-2 Lincoln got 
on the scoreboard quickly as Marty 
Gould bowed to Kerry Moore, 5-2. Joe 
Thonus then ran into some stiff com- 
petition in ex-state champ, Greg White. 
White's decision was it for Lincoln. Brent 
Franklin and Ken Sturm stifled any hope 
Lincoln had by decisioning Bill Palmer 
and Jeff Lewis respectively, giving the 
Valley a 24-6 cushion. Another Eisen- 
hart pin (this one in 1:00) coupled with 
John Kolb's prize (his in 2:49) chalked 
up another strong victory for the Valley.

A Dream 

Just as the title implies, this con- 
cert started as a dream in the 
minds of Student Government sev- 
eral months ago. Reading over old 
Student Government minutes, one 
can see that numerous groups have 
been investigated before the deci- 
sion on Dreams was arrived at. 

A few weeks ago, I asked who's 
this new group called Dreams, but 
you don't have to tell me now, and 
I'm sure anyone who attended the 
concert feels the same. 

The concert was started by a 
down-to-earth folk singer named 
Mark. He entranced the audience 
with guitar and voice of better 
quality than expected. Mark, at 
first seeming nervous and unsure 
of the audience, soon became at 
ease because of the astonished ap- 
plause following his first number. 

Sitting in the audience, I heard 
several people remark, "This can't 
be real — he sounds too good to be 
true!" and that's about the only 
way to describe his sound — too 
good to be true. 

Succeeding Mark was a group 
that many of us had heard. They 
have played at our mixers several 
times, and need no introduction. 
They are called Big City Music 
Band. We have seen them advance 
from a simple mixer group to a 
back-up group for a concert. Per- 
haps some day they will get top 
billing and give a concert of their 

Dream had a sound of their own, 
from a trumpet player who took 
the heads of everyone to the sax 
player and drummer who were also 
talented. Their sounds, when com- 
bined, engulfed the minds of the 

Dream consisted of eight equally 
talented musicians including: sax, 
trumpet, drummer, bass guitar, 
organ, singer, lead guitar, and 
trombone. They had the look of 
Blood, Sweat and Tears, or Chi- 
cago, but had the sound of Dream. 

The concert was without doubt 
the most successful event to take 
place here all year. Just walking on 
campus during these two days of 
spring week-end, I found it alive 
for the first time for as long as I 
can remember.

Omnibus Day 

A group of students of Delaware 
Valley College, in cooperation with 
the Admissions Office, have begun 
plans to sponsor a program to bring 
approximately thirty students from 
Philadelphia area high schools to 
the college. This program is geared 
toward bringing about a better re- 
lationship between these schools 
and D.V.C. 

The main purpose of this pro- 
gram is to make these potential 
students aware of the opportuni- 
ties available to them here. This 
program will be held on Wednes- 
day, April 14. 

Mr. Morelli will speak to the 
students between campus tours and 
class visitations. In addition to 
these activities, the students' after- 
noon will be highlighted by the 
Delaware Valley - Moravian base- 
ball bame at 3:15 p.m. 

These plans have come to frui- 
tion with the approval of Dr.

A committee was set up to eval- 
uate the idea of having alcohol on 
campus. Thomas Brewer and Pete 
Bracchi have already done some 
research on other colleges which 
have a policy that allows alcohol 
on campus. If the policy is accept- 
ed, students being 21 years of age 
or older will be allowed to have 
liquor in their rooms. A student 
may have as much liquor as he 
wants and any type of liquor he 
desires. There will be no restric- 
tions on the time a student can 
have liquor or drink it. Liquor will 
be allowed in the dorm rooms only, 
not in any public places, like hall- 
ways, lounges or on the grounds of 
the college. A student 21 years old 
may have a roommate under 21 
years of age, but if the roommate 
is caught drinking, he will be dis-

The U. S. Navy Recruiting Serv- 
ice has announced the removal of 
quota limitations for applicants to 
the Navy Officer Candidate School, 
Newport, Rhode Island. 

In recent years only a limited 
number of applicants have been 
nominated to the Bureau of Naval 
Personnel for selection as officer 
candidates. "For the immediate fu- 
ture", said Commander E. P. Aus- 
brooks, Jr., commanding officer of 
the Philadelphia Navy Recruiting 
District, "all mentally and physic- 
ally qualified applicants may be 
nominated for selection as officer 
candidates leading to a commission 
in the Naval Reserve". Selection of 
opportunity should be high at least 
through May of this year. 

College seniors and graduates 
should contact their nearest Navy 
Recruiter or Officer Programs Offi- 
cer at 13 South 13th Street, Phila- 
delphia, Penna. Phone 597-4690 for 
further information.

(Continued from third column) 
ciplined by the state laws and/or 
the college. 

A poll was taken on students 
wanting alcohol on campus; about 
75-80? would accept the responsi- 
bilities of this policy. They felt this 
would show how mature they are. 

The rules and restrictions on al- 
cohol will be the same as the state 
laws on alcohol. The police will 
have the right to go through the 
hallways of the dorms. They can- 
not enter the student's room un- 
less they have a search warrant or 
if you let them in. Mr. Savage could 
enter the room at anytime, and if 
he caught someone under 21 drink- 
ing he could have the college pun- 
ish him or get evidence and have 
him arrested. In short the state 
would be enforcing the law, and 
the college would be enforcing the 
behavior of the students. 

The policy will first go to the 
Student Government and then be 
submitted to Mrs. Work, from her 
to Doctor Work and finally to the 
Board of Trustees. If the policy is 
accepted, it could be started this 
year on a trial basis. If not this 
year, it would go into effect next 
fall on a trial basis. A decision 
from the Board will not be known 
until late April.

the Ram— Editorial Staff 
Delaware Valley College 
of Science and Agriculture 
Doylestown, Pa. 

Dear Sirs: 

I wish to write to you regarding 
two advertisements that appear on 
page two of the February 12 issue 
of "The Ram". I am referring to 
"Drama Guild" and "New York 
Abortion Service". I hope you are 
getting well paid for these adver- 

I see on the front page where 
Tom Pyle refers to the Abortion 
Service advertisement as an inter- 
esting topic; a comprehensive edi- 
torial or article on the sad situation 
of the pregnant coed or unmarried 
young woman would indeed be 
"interesting", "informative", and 

I suggest a "Theater Column" 
where plays, movies, and entertain- 
ment can be previewed, reviewed 
and evaluated. 

In regards to the new name for 
this student newspaper, I feel that 
this should have been the choice 
of the student body rather than by 
the newspaper staff. This could 
have been accomplished through a 
survey of the student body, per- 
haps by means of a "census form".

Reply To 
Salem G. Fine 

Dear Mr. Fine N.F.S. '20: 

Your suggestion for humor and 
quotation columns has some inter- 
esting possibilities, and a theater 
column is in the developing stage. 
The main problem with additional 
writing for the Ram is our limited 
number of staff members. I could 
think of five or ten additions I 
would like to make in the news- 
paper, but without a larger staff it 
is hard to do. 

Now, for your information, Mr. 
Fine, the newspaper is not receiv- 
ing any money at all for the two 
letters (advertisements) that you 
previously mentioned. Our news- 
paper does not take any view, pro 
or con, on the morality of abortion.. 
I do feel that if anyone wishes to 
use the service, he should have the 
information available to him. In the 
future, however, abortion service 
information will not be printed in 
the newspaper, only because there 
is a question as to which services 
are reputable. 

When you mentioned the Drama 
Guild article, you did not explain 
your opposition to it. I can draw 
only a vague conclusion that you 
do not feel "The Amorous Flea" is 
the proper type play for college 
students to see. If that is the case, 
I do not feel any further discussion 
on that subject is warranted. 

As to the name of the paper, 
maybe I did not explain clearly 
enough how it was changed. We 
held a contest to try to get sugges- 
tions for a new name; this allowed 
each student an opportunity to 
voice his opinion. Through the sug- 
gestions, the staff chose the best- 
suited name. If you are not satisfied 
with the new name, this is under- 
standable since you graduated from 
the formerly named National Farm 
School. As I said before, not every- 
one will be satisfied with the name 
change, but it has been found al- 
most impossible to satisfy every- 
body all the time. 

Best wishes, 

Thomas C. Pyle, D.V.C. 73

Student Rumblings 

To whom it may concern: 

It is the opinion of die authors of this 
editorial that the new rules governing 
the cafeteria are unrealistic. Just what 
is going on? Now, you know why the 
students have been clamoring for meal 
tickets. Yes, we do need some type of 
legislation to get at that minority of 
students who don't return their travs or 
who leave their table a mess, but this is 

Looking at the situation from the stu- 
dent's point of view, the cafeteria must 
make a bundle off the meals not served 
to the students. (For example, no more 
than V3 of the students, at most, eat 
breakfast in the mornings). How much 
does the cafeteria earn on this alone? 
And how about week-ends? The campus 
is nearly deserted; therefore, it's all the 
more food that isn't served, yet has been 
paid for by the students. This still doesn't 
include a number of students who eat in 
town because they can't stomach the 
S. O. S. 

Something has to be done about the 
situation. Its hard to see how the cafe- 
teria can limit you on your own food, 
food that you've already paid for. For 
example, on the extremely few occasions 
that hand-dipped ice cream is served, 
no one is entitled to more than one scoop. 
No one is allowed to take over two small 
glasses of juice at a time in the mornings. 
It's very seldom, if ever, that we are 
allowed seconds on desserts. Now they 
have the gall to tell us that we can t 
take the likes of sandwiches, fruit juice, 
crackers, etc., (the only things that are 
readily accessible in plentiful amounts to 
the students) back to our rooms. We, the 
students, protest this ruling and demand 
some action! 

Since I rapped a while on the cafe- 
teria situation, I might as well ven- 
ture an opinion on the open-door pol- 
icy. I think that the open-door policy, 
as it is, is childish and immature. It re- 
flects not on the students, but on the 
administration who set it up. You (the 
administration) sit up there in your of- 
fices and decide that you won't loosen 
the policy because you say the students 
don't obey the laws as they are now. 

The reason for our not obeying the 
rules is clear to the students, if not to 
the administration. The restrictions are 
too antiquated for the times. This open- 
door policy is closed-door policy every- 
where except for D.V.C. and a few re- 
ligious schools. Schools bigger and bet- 
ter than ours and schools smaller and not 
so much better than ours are willing to 
give the students at least this much re- 
sponsibility anyway. 

It's as simple as this; if the administra- 
tion treats us childishly as they are doing 
by imposing the open-door regulations, 
then we can be expected to act child- 
ishly by not fully obeying the rules. Give 
us responsibility and well act respon- 

I won't even start on this room inspec- 
tion bit. Yeah, maybe I will. It's ridicu- 
lous. We must be the onlv school in the 
country that still has this foolishness. 
Let's go, administration — get on the 

William Rice 

Summer School? 

Have you seen the new summer ses- 
sion class schedule yet? If you have, 
you've been dreaming, because it's not 
out yet. Why isn't it out yet? Well, that's 
the question I've been asking at the eve- 
ning and summer school offices since last 
December. I haven't been the only one 
asking either. After Christmas vacation 
and before registration for second sem- 
ester, I just knew the schedule would be 
out. After all, you must have the sum- 
mer schedule so you can plan second 
semester courses and an overall plan till 
graduation. This is especially true if you 
are a transfer student who has difficulty 
in scheduling courses anyhow. Well, 
there was no schedule then, and now 
that it's time to look for that summer 
job or choose to go to school, there is 
still no schedule. The excuse that it is 
the fault of the department heads is not 
good enough for me, and that's all the 
summer school office can offer. It should 
not be good enough for any other Del 
Val student interested in summer classes. 
If this college wishes to bury that "Farm 
School" image, then it better start getting 
things done as a real college does.

N.F.S. Is Dead 

The Founder's Day Convocation was 
held Sunday, March 14, here at D.V.C. 
This occasion marked two anniversaries 
— the 75th of this institution and the 
25th year of Dr. Work's Presidency. 

Underlying the extravagant sentimen- 
tality of the convocation an important 
message was conveyed by more than one 
sDeaker. That message was the fact that 
D.V.C. is no longer the National Farm 
School... "....It's a new school..." This 
realization on the part of the speakers 
at Founder's Day was a milestone in it- 
self; this realization hopefully marks 
even another beginning. 

Yes, the students, buildings, and many 
of the faculty members are pure D.V.C, 
but why are some of the administrative 
policies still N.F.S.? This administration 
tries to run the school in the way it be- 
lieves Dr. Krauskopf (the founder) 
would if he were alive today — with a 
1971 outlook. 

If the National Farm School existed 
today, the preceding policy would be 
fine, but this is not the case. The stu- 
dents attending a 1971 N.F.S. would be 
different from our existing student body. 

Many people recognize the birth of 
Delaware Valley College. Too many peo- 
ple have missed the fact that the Na- 
tional Farm School has died — it is gone. 
As much as one may wish to reminisce, 
the N.F.S. can be only, at the most, a 
fond memory. 

It's not good business to run a res- 
taurant like a book store, or a barber 

shop like a car wash or D.V.C. like

The Strange Fruit 
- The Gingko - 

This tree evolved on Earth long be- 
fore man appeared and evidently has not 
changed much over the millenia. Its 
adaptation, its physiology, its ability to 
cope with its environment was genetic- 
ally secure millions of years ago. The 
apes and humanoids who may have 
climbed it were still evolving - — and it 
seems likely that the Gingko will survive 
another million years — if it can survive 
the violent acts of the wanton men, who 
will be long gone by then. 

The fruit of the Gingko tree is unusual 
— it doesn't seem to "spoil" the way other 
fruits do. In 1954 I collected some from 
the ground — today three of them in a 
test tube appear nearly the same as when 
first examined. Their odor is more arom- 
atic now — less "butyric" than the fresh, 
ripe fruit, but there is no gross evidence 
of spoilage. One would expect some spe- 
cies of mold to find the moist tissue a 
nutrient medium. Why don't the fruits 
"rot" like any other fruit? Of all the thou- 
sands dropped in Gingko Lane I have 
never seen one with mold or colonies of 
yeast growing on them. Their acidity 
might be the reason — it is about half that 
of lemon, yet lemons are susceptible to 
some molds. The dropped fruit seems to 
enter the soil without fermentation or 
rotting playing an evident role. Bacteria 
must cause the eventual decomposition of 
the pulp — the shells of the seeds dry out, 
open and must be degraded in the same 

In 1955 I steam distilled some of the 
pulp to see if there was much volatility 
to the odor — it was distinctly butyric 
and had a pH of 3.9. It wasn't until 1964 
that a little more study was begun. The 
distillate of 1955 was titrated and found 
to be 0.38% as butyric. About 750 grams 
of the fruit were collected and frozen. 
When thawed about two weeks later 
some of the juice which leaked from the 
fruit titrated 0.78% as butyric acid. The 
pulp weighed 566 gms and the 137 seeds 
weighed 182 gms including the shells. 
The pulp contained 26% solids (74% 
moisture and volatiles). The shelled seed 
contained 47.5% solids or 52.5% mois- 
ture. Crude protein from Kjedhahl N x 
6.25 on the dried pulp was 5.8% which 
calculated to 1.5% on the fresh basis. 
The dry seed showed 11.85% crude pro- 
tein and 5.68% in the fresh seed. The 
endosperm of the seed is loaded with 

(Continued next column) 

Guess Who? 

starch which resembles microscopically 
the starch of the legumes. The germ ap- 
pears at the center of the seed. 

From about 560 gm of wet pulp 200 ml 
of Gingko fruit juice was pressed, treated 
with Filter Cel and clarified. This juice 
had a specific gravity of 1.12 which cor- 
responds to a 27.5% sucrose solution, and 
a refractive index of 1.3667 which cor- 
responds to 21.7% as sucrose. Both of 
these are about twice the solids content 
of other fruit juices, as sucrose. No at- 
tempt was made to ascertain whether 
much or most of the solids were in fact 

Titrations were carried out on a direct 
distillate of the Gingko juice ( 50 ml juice 
"50 ml water" 1ml cone, sulfuric acid — 
5 oml distilled). This showed only 0.18% 
volatile acid as butyric. The whole juice 
titrated to 2.64% as butyric. 

Titration curves of pH vs ml 0.1N base 
were run on a butyric acid solution of 
2.64% concentration and on the Gingko 
juice. They were quite different. The 
butyric acid solution showed the fami- 
liar weak acid — strong base curve while 
the juice showed a slow upward curve. 
The solids from the same volume of 
juice showed a curve rising faster than 
that of the whole juice but leveling off 
to near the same end point pH at nearly 
the same volume of base added. It ap- 
pears that most of the acid present in 
the Gingko fruit is "fixed", not volatile. 
If the acid is citric or malic, etc. the non- 
volatile acid percentage is about three 
quarters of what was reported above as 
butyric. Chromatography would be use- 
ful to identify the acids and sugars pres- 
ent. If the volatile acid is butyric it isn't 
surprising that the Gingko fruit is so 
noticeable — this acid is detectable from 
its odor in parts of a part per million. 

The apparent resistance of the fruit to 
ordinary rotting suggested another ex- 
periment at that time. Any fnrit will 
nave on their skins hundreds or thou- 
sands of organisms— did the" Gingko fruit 
picked from the ground have such a 
microflora? Macerated fruit from a blend- 
er was plated at dilutions of 1-10, 1-1000 
and 1-10,000. The plates showed no colo- 
nies of any kind. Either there were less 
than ten organisms per gram of tissue 
or the presence of the tissue in the plate 
(at least another 1-10 dilution) sup- 
pressed growth of the organisms. A 
streak of three cultures was made on 
each plate: S. aureus, Pa. aeruginosa 
and a Bacillus ( sprorulating ) species. 
Only the Bacillus failed to grow on the 
1-10 plate. The other two grew on all 
three dilutions and the Bacillus grew on 
the two higher dilutions. 

Maybe the Gingko doesn't have a spe- 
cial physiology — my guess is that it does. 
Any growing thing that can protect itself 
so well from parasites (except "man") 
must be something special.

Business Club 
Announces Raffle 

The Business Club held its an- 
nual election of new officers to 
replace the outgoing seniors on 
Thursday, March 4, 1971. The new 
cabinet consists of Al Lehman — 
President, Rich Keown — Vice-Pres- 
ident, Emedio Ricci — Secretary, 
and Jonathan Quick — Treasurer. 
We would like to extend our 
thanks and congratulations to Don 
Chance, Don Sechler, Rich Serwell 
and Dominick Cerchio for their 
outstanding dedication and per- 
formance over this past year. 

The new officers are busy pre- 
paring their plans for such upcom- 
ing events as "A" Day, the Club 
Banquet and the annual Spring 

This year the club's "A" Day 
displays will be located at Segal 
Hall. There will be a demonstra- 
tion of the Bell Telephone Com- 
munication System inside the hall. 
While outside, there will be an ex- 
hibit of cars, old and new, which 
will be correlated to our present 
Marketing Research program. 

To date the club is in the process 
of holding its annual Spring Busi- 
ness Raffle. The raffle will consist 
of a cash drawing, similar to our 
previous one, depending upon how 
much money is accumulated. The 
drawing will take place on April 2, 

This year the annual club's ban- 
quet will be held at the College- 
ville Inn. The dinner, which will 
be a smorgasbord, is to be held 
some time in late April. 

The new officers wish to extend 
an invitation to any person wishing 
to join the Business Club. The 
academic standards have been 
dropped, and the only requirement 
is that the person show an interest 
and participate in all the club's 
meetings and functions. 

Respectfully submitted,

Romeo and Juliet 
In Verona, Italy 

Did Romeo and Juliet really exist? 
Students studying in Verona, Italy, this 
year under the auspices of the Region- 
al Council for International Education 
(RCIE) have been pondering that ques- 

Verona, of course, is the site of Shake- 
speare's play, and we do know that there 
were warring families and that among 
them were the Montechi (Montagues) 
and the Capelletti (Capulets). Bu< Jas- 
torians question whether Romeo and 
Juliet were real people and whether the 
great love affair took place, even though 
the story had a long tradition before 
Shakespeare immortalized it. 

The Veronese, however, are undaunted 
by history. There is a house in Verona 
designated "Romeo's house." And there 
is a lovely courtyard with a balcony 
where Juliet is said to have stood and 
mused upon the foolishness of fate at 
having, in a name, condemned her love. 
And there is a tomb — Juliet's tomb — to 
which tens of thousands of people from 
all over the world come annually to drop 
a tear. 

To the Regional Council students at 
the Centro Internationale di Studi ( RCIE 
in Verona ) who walk the entrancing nar- 
row Renaissance streets and sip wine in 
the engaging open piazzas of Verona, the 
story of Romeo and Juliet comes very 
much alive. So does the whole awaken- 
ing of Western civilization in which 
Verona played a major role. 

Students currently freshmen or sopho- 
mores who would like to explore now 
they can spend a year in Verona should 
write to William J. Koenig, RCIE Direc- 
tor of Overseas Programs, 1101 Bruce 
Hall, University of Pittsburgh, Pitts- 
burgh, Pennsylvania 15213.

Handbook On 


Study for U. S. 


The Institute of International Educa- 
tion announces publication of the fifth 
edition of the Handbook on International 
Study for U. S. Nationals, a work that 
has come to be recognized as the basic 
guide in the field. Intended primarily 
for the serious graduate or undergraduate 
student or the scholar who is interested 
in attending a foreign university or spe- 
cialized institution with a definite aca- 
demic or professional goal in mind, the 
Handbook also provides extensive infor- 
mation in compact form for faculty ad- 
visers, teachers, and other counselors ad- 
vising U. S. students about study abroad 
and assessing the academic backgrounds 
of foreign students. 

The Handbook describes the higher 
educational systems of 120 countries and 
territories and lists all the universities 
and other institutions which are recog- 
nized within these countries as univer- 
sity-level institutions. It also includes se- 
lected lists of specialized institutions — 
technical schools, art schools, music 
schools, etc. — which offer study oppor- 
tunities similar to university-level train- 
ing in the United States. It provides in- 
formation on the language of instruction, 
the academic year, major university de- 
grees, admission proceedures, costs, hous- 
ing, and special programs of interest to 
U. S. students. 

A period of study abroad is becom- 
ing a standard part of the well-rounded 
U. S. education, and the number of aca- 
demic-year and summer-study programs 
sponsored by U. S. colleges and universi- 
ties has more than quadrupled in the past 
decade. These programs are listed in 
separate chapters of the new Handbook, 
with current information about the fields 
of study offered, enrollment, housing, 
costs, scholarships, and application dead- 

An important chapter of the Handbook 
lists awards for study and research in 
institutions of higher learning abroad. 
Information is given on the nature of 
each program, eligibility requirements, 
financial grants, duration, and the ad- 
dress for application. Another chapter 
lists various special programs of interest 
to students, trainees, and volunteers and 
to teachers, university lecturers, and spe- 
cialists. These programs mix opportuni- 
ties for study and training with others 
for voluntary service and employment. 

The Institute of International Educa- 
tion is a leading private, non-profit 
agency in the field of educational and 
cultural exchange. Through its New 
York headquarters, seven U.S. Regional 
Offices, Overseas Offices on four conti- 
nents, and representatives in 26 coun- 
tries, HE carries on exchange programs 
between the U. S. and more than 100 
other countries. 

The Handbook on International Study 
for U. S. Nationals is available from the 
Institute of International Education, 809 
United Nations Plaza, New York, New 
York 10017, for $7.00 a copy. A com- 
panion volume, the Handbook on Inter- 
national Study for Foreign Nationals will 
be published later in 1971.

A. A. U. P. - D. V. C 

The four officers and a member 
of the local Chapter of the AAUP 
attended the annual meeting of the 
Pennsylvania Division of the Asso- 
ciation in Harrisburg, Pa. on Satur- 
day, March 6th. During the annual 
conference of the Division of 8,000 
members, discussion groups were 
concerned with Academic Freedom 
and Tenure, the State Colleges and 
Collective Bargaining, Women's 
Rights in Higher Education and 
Faculty Responsibility and Profes- 
sional Ethics. The representatives 
of the DVC Chapter handed out 
copies of its study of the policies 
of 39 Pennsylvania colleges and 
universities to those in attendance. 
The in-depth-study received many 
compliments from the enthusiastic 
delegates to the conference and 
from the Associate Executive Di- 
rector of the Washington, D. C. of- 
fice and from the President of the 
Pennsylvania Division. 

The local Chapter of the AAUP 
will serve as Co-Hosts at the an- 
nual meeting of the American As- 
sociation of University Professors 
at the University of Pennsylvania 
Museum Rotunda on Friday, April 
16th and Saturday, April 17th. Rep- 
resentatives from colleges and uni- 
versities throughout the United 
States will attend this annual meet- 
ing of the national faculty asso- 
ciation of approximately 100,000 

Elections of officers of the local 
Chapter of the AAUP will be con- 
ducted during its May meeting. 
Since the Chapter's Constitution 
limits its officers to no more than 
two consecutive one-year terms in 
a specific office, President Peter 
Glick, Jr, Vice-President Ronald 
Deering, Secretary James Powell, 
Treasurer Donald Igelsrud, and 
Directors David Blumenfield and 
Kenneth Stratton will be ineligible 
for re-election to the offices they 
now hold. The only current officer 
eligible for re-election to his office 
is George West, one of the three 
directors. The Chapter's Member- 
ship and Nominating Committee 
will present its slate of nominees 
for office during the April meeting. 
After other nominations are re- 
ceived from the floor during the 
May meeting, the election will be 
conducted by the Committee with 
secret ballots being cast by the 
members in attendance. 









George Cummins '73 




MAC Champion 

Eisenhart Second 

by Lou Hegyes 

Sophomore George Cummins, 
with a 26-4-1 record over the last 
four years, became Delaware Val- 
ley's first MAC wrestling champion 
at the MAC championships held 
recently at Swarthmore. 

Junior Larry Eisenhart also ad- 
vanced to the finals but lost by a 
11-3 score. 

George Cummins, seeded second 
in the 134 pound class became the 
champion when he defeated Eliza- 
bethtown's Ron Krause by a 8-3 de- 

Krause had Cummins down, 
after a scoreless first period, but 
Cummins got a stand-up escape 
and a lead of 1-0. George then 
scored on a takedown and a near 
pin to make the score 6-0. Krause 
scored on an escape for a 6-1 score 
after two periods. 

In the third period Krause again 
scored on an escape and picked up 
another point as Cummins was 
charged with stalling. 

George iced the decision with 
another take down and a final score 
of 8-3. 

In the 190 lb. final DVC's Larry 
Eisenhart was decisively defeated 
by Ron Fritts of Wilkes. 

Eisenhart defeated second seed- 
ed Jim Crop of Ursinus and pinned 
third seeded Wayne Goodroe of 

In the team scoring Wi'kes cap- 
tured their third consecut'Ve MAC 
crown by scoring 116 points. It was 
their tenth team title in the past 
seventeen years. The Aggies fin- 
ished fifth with a total of 24 points. 

With the champion and runner- 
up in each weight class eligible for 
the National championships both 
Cummins and Eisenhart travelled 
to the Nationals held at North 
Dakota State University in Fargo. 

The two Aggie wrestlers did not 
have the luck that was with them 
at Swarthmore as George Cummins 
was eliminated in the first round 
by Dave Pike of Northern Iowa 
University. Cummins was pinned 
in 2:39. 

Larry Eisenhart, who moved 
down to the 177 lb. class, did get 
past the preliminaries but was 
eliminated in the second round. 
Larry defeated Ted Hart of West- 
ern Colorado 11-10 but was knock- 
ed out of competition by Tom 
Corbo of John Carroll University. 
Cal Poly retained the team title.

Next semester, intramural bowl- 
ing will be added to the list of in- 
tramural sports in which coeds 
shall be permitted to participate. 

Under the present guidelines set 
by the athletic department, coeds 
will be permitted to join the league 
only in multiples of four-girl teams. 
The purpose is to maintain the 
identity of an all male league yet 
to accommodate the present coeds 
interested in bowling. A mixed 
league (fellows and girls on the 
same teams), and an all girl league 
will be established as the coed par- 
ticipation increases. 

The reason for maintaining the 
present all-male league and creat- 
ing an all-female league is to main- 
tain competition on a level equal 
to intercollegiate bowling. 

Any inquiries or suggestions 
should be sent me at the post office,

Lou's Views 

by Lou Hegyes 

Even though the basketball sea- 
son has ended DVC's Don Sechler 
is still being honored. The big sen- 
ior was recently named to the 
ECAC Division II All East team 
for the third consecutive year. 
Sechler ended the season as the 
nation's leading college division 
free throw shooter with a .904 per- 
centage, and in the MAC, was 
the Northern Divisions leading re- 
bounder with a 16.6 average and 
the fifth leading scorer with 307 
points for a 21.9 average. Scran- 
ton's Gene Munford lead the 
league with a 23.5 average. 

Don was also an honorable men- 
tion for the 1971 District Small Col- 
lege team by the Herb Good Me- 
morial Basketball Writers Club and 
also an honorable mention on the 
Pennsylvania Collegiate Press As- 
sociation All State team. The first 
team of that poll consisted of Dave 
Wohl and Dave Calhoun of Penn, 
Howard Porter of Villanova, Jar- 
rett Durham of Duquesne and Ken 
Durrett of La Salle. Named also as 
honorable mentions from the MAC 
College Division were Gene Mun- 
ford of Scranton, Wally Rice of 
PMC, Brian Shively and Mike 
O'Rourke of Philadelphia Textile. 

Where and when will *:he line 
be drawn? Again the people who 
divide the university and college 
divisions can be thanked. At the 
National College Division Wres- 
tling championships DVC compet- 
ed with colleges many times our 
enrollment. Should Wayne State 
(23,000), Eastern Michigan (13,-

A-Day Events 
For 1971 

A-Day 1971 will be held May 1 and 2 this year. Through the efforts 
of a few individuals, the 23rd edition of this event has been set up to 
present our school to the public. The two days serve as a dual purpose: 
first, to demonstrate some of the skills and knowledge learned here on 
campus and also to provide a means for the clubs at the school to raise 
money to meet club expenses for trips, banquets and refreshments when 
the clubs entertain guest speakers. The students who work on A-Day 
donate their time to support their various clubs. For each hour a club 
puts in, it receives an hourly wage based on the total number work hours 
put in divided into the net profit. This year another innovation has been 
accepted by the committee — girls' work hours will also be counted. This 
was installed in hopes of creating more interest among our students. 

To add extra spice to this years event, the Equine Club will put on 
a demonstration in horsemanship. Many other clubs will present projects 
on Ecology. This year, besides garden plants, the Ornamental Horticul- 
ture Club will have for sale a wide variety of house plants. The raffle 
will consist of a pony or $75 as first prize, a cassette tape recorder as 
second prize, and an AM-FM radio as third prize. Tickets will be 50tf 
each, 3/$l. Also to help preserve some of the pleasure for future use, a 
movie film will be taken. 

As A-Day Chairman I want to thank the many people who have 
helped to put together this year's event, especially, Mr. Robert Sauer, 
our Faculty advisor, whose help has made most of our preparations run 

— John A. Furphy, Chairman 

Food Industry Club 

The Food Industry Club will have a demonstration on the art of 
making cheese>and also a presentation on food additives which are ever 
present in our foods today. 

Dairy Society 

The Dairy Society will be selling milk shakes, ice cream and milk. 
Also, there will be a milking demonstration in their tent in which five 
major Dairy breeds will be represented. The State dairy princess will be 
attending, as well as Princesses from Montgomery and Berks counties. 
A fitting and showmanship show will be held on Saturday morning. 

D. T. A. 

The D. T. A. Club will man a career mobile unit supplied by the state 
to present occupation opportunities in Agriculture. 

Equine Club 

The Equine Club will have an exhibit which will consist of a tack 
display, feed display and trailer. Both Saturday and Sunday a riding 
exhibit will be held. They are also responsible for the Pony raffle which 
will be held Sunday afternoon. 

Animal Husbandry 

The Animal Husbandry Club will present a fitting and showmanship 
livestock show (beef, swine, and sheep) on Sunday at noon. Saturday 
there will be a livestock judging contest beginning at eight o'clock. There 
will also be a display tent that will house exhibits by each class of the 

Soil Conservation 

The Soil Conservation Club will present a wildlife exhibit. Wildlife 
of several species will be on exhibit: pheasants, quail, torn turkeys and 
mallard ducks in the fowl line and deer along with fish and mounts of 
fish and jars containing fawns at different stages of growth.

D.V.C Soils 

Team No. 1 

In Nation 

Delaware Valley College's soil 
judging team ended its third year 
of active participation in intercol- 
legiate soil judging by returning 
from national competition in Tuc- 
son, Arizona, with nothing less than 
the title of Number One in the 
United States in soil judging. 

Last October,* DVC won the 
right to enter national competition 
when the team won second place 
in the Northeast Regional Contest 
held in Maine. The University of 
Maryland beat us out of top posi- 
tion by a narrow margin. 

However, the experienced DVC 
team, after many weeks of study of 
Arizona soils and a half-week of 
field practice on desert soils in Ari- 
zona, proved to be the best in the 
nation. The team, composed of 
Bruce Baessler, Bill Beers, Bill 
Camerer, Ernie Grunow, and Bill 
Hanczar, was coached in Arizona 
by Mr. Stratton of the Agronomy 
Department. During the semester, 
Mr. Brown helped prepare the 
team for competition. 

Two of the team members were 
among the top 10 scorers in the 
national contest. Bill Hanczar was

Comes To 


From D.V.C. 

Billy Owens, a Business Admin- 
istration major, of the class of 72, 
was killed on Friday, April 4, in a 
tragic auto accident. Bifiy, driving 
his Volkswagen convertible, had 
just aiTived home for the semester 
break. He unloaded some of his 
things and then told his mom that 
he thought he'd go into town to do 
a little shopping and to get a hair- 
cut. There tragedy struck, in that 
Billy's mom never saw him alive 
again. On his way home, fate 
grasped Billy's life. At a curve near 
his home, Bill ran into the rear of a 
truck, which had stopped in the 
road, while the driver of it was 
asking directions. He never re- 
gained consciousness. 

I remember Bill as an easy-going 
guy who lived life to the fullest. 
Rich Keown recalls an incident 
when both he and Bill had worked 
all of a Saturday. Rich saved his 
money, but Bill had spent all of his 
by that evening, saying to Rich, 
"You only live once, man". 

Billy is survived by his parents, 
Mr. and Mrs. Owens, and his sis- 
ter Linda. I must say Hiut the en- 
tire family was exceedingly brave 
throughout the ordeal. Though the 
accident wasn't Bill's fault, Mrs. 
Owens pleaded with us always to 
listen to both sides of the story. 
"Give the other guy a fair shake". 

A congregation of approximately 
35 students and members of the 
faculty attended services held at 
his home in Cambridge, Maryland, 
on April 5. 

We'll all miss Bill. In Cooke 
Hall, his many friends, Amedio 
Ricci, Jim Foote, Chris Neilson and 
Fred Beach cherish a fonder mem- 
ory than most students. They knew 
him best. As one student put it, 
"He's not dead, it just seems like 
he's away".

the second highest scoring in- 
dividual, missing the top position 
by one point, and Ernie Grunow 
was the fourth highest scoring in- 
dividual. These men were given 
individual recognition for their 
achievement at the awards banquet 
in Arizona. 

Before returning from Arizona, 
the group relaxed and enjoyed the 
sights around Tucson, visiting a 
desert museum, open-pit copper 
mines, the city of Nogales in Mex- 
ico, and a deep limestone cave. 

The soils team is grateful to the 
administration at Delaware Valley 
College for its tremendous support. 
Because of this support, the team 
was able to get in much-needed 
practice in Arizona and was well 
prepared for the contest. 

Official results were as follows:

Club Banquet 

Awards night was held on March 25 
at the Collegeville Inn during a joint 
meeting of the Agronomy and Soil Con- 
servation clubs. The awards were based 
on scholastic average, participation in 
the club and extra-curricular activities. 
The outstanding sophomore award in 
Agronomy was earned by Dave Kindig. 
The Junior award went to Wayne B. 
Knerr. Joe Kershner received an award 
for being the outstanding Senior from 
the American Society of Agronomy. 

The guest speaker for the night was 
County Agent, Mr. Ellenbuger, for Le- 
high County. He graduated from Perm 
State with a degree in Agronomy, and 
this is his twentieth year working for 
Lehigh County. He told us of the prob- 
lems in his county which not only relate 
to the state of Pennsylvania, but also to 
the nation in general. Since taxes are 
being raised to an unprecedented level, 
the farmer is forced to sell his land in 
order to live. The result, the best agri- 
cultural land in the U. S., is rapidly 
being sold to housing, industry and other 
non-agricultural uses. Since there is no 
present method of cultivating asphalt, 
the country is in a bad way. 

The faculty members, Mr. and Mrs. 
Stratton, Mr. and Mrs. Brown, and Dr. 
Prundeanu, all concluded it was a suc- 
cessful night especially after the fine 
dinner we all enjoyed.

60 Traveling 

On March 31, Dr. Bertlwlds Apiari- 
culture class and the Apiarist Society of 
Del Val College went on a fietd trip to 
see a honey-extraction operation and a 
honey-packaging plant. The first stop on 
our agenda was at the farm of an Amish- 
man, Mr. Fisher, who showed us his 
honey - extraction equipment, which is 
run completely by hydraulics and steam. 
Mr. Fisher and his wife served the al- 
ways hungry Aggies some delicious re- 
freshments of orange juice and home- 
made sticky buns. On the way to the 
second destination the Aggie Beekeepers 
started to get hungry again, so "Doc" 
decided we should stop to eat lunch at 
Dutch Haven. After having our fill of 
ham and cheese sandwiches we continued 
on our way to Dutch Cold Honey Inc., 
Lancaster, Pa. When reaching Dutch 
Gold, we were given a tour of the plant 
by its president, Mr. Ralph Gamber, 
where we were shown how honey is pro- 
cessed and packed and how honey 
spreads are made. At the end of the day 
every one sped back to D.V.C. much

Letter From 
The Editor 

This is the last issue of the year 
for the Ram. If I may, I would 
like to look back on this interesting 
year, for the college newspaper. 
After the first two issues, a prob- 
lem came up where the current 
editors could no longer remain as 
officers on the paper. Since there 
was literally no one on the staff 
that could become editor, I accept- 
ed the position; at that time there 
were a total of six staff members. I 
did some recruiting and drummed 
up an additional 15 members. The 
new staff wanted to change the 
"image" of the paper; they wanted 
to make the paper more interesting 
for the students to read. The first 
thing we did was to change the 
name of the paper. The second was 
that we decided to try to accept 
any article, as long as it was in 
good taste journalistically and had 
no libel intended. These are the 
same qualifications of any other 
professional or college newspaper. 

So what was the result? The 
paper expressed the views of the 
students for the first time in its his- 
tory. Now many alumni are going 
to say that when they were in col- 
lege, their paper spoke the views 
of the students, but let me tell you, 
I have access to every D.V.C. pub- 
lication, and the views of the stu- 
dents were not allowed to be ex- 
pressed as they are today. 

However, we don't express this 
free thought without some trouble. 
- The administrators have subtly ex- 
pressed their dislike for me as an 
editor and my staff also. I've also 
been told that unlike any other pro- 
fessional or college paper, all edi- 
torials must be signed by the stu- 
dent or person who wrote the 
article; hence there can be none of 
the common signatures by an in- 
terested student, a concerned par- 
ent, or anonymous. 

The paper has really started up 
interest this year throughout our 
college community. I've received a 
number of letters from alumni. The 
results of the alumni are what 
would be expected. From about the 
class of '59 on down they dislike 
our paper, and from about the class 
of '60 on up they have said they 
liked the paper. 

I've received many letters and 
comments that ask, "Why do you 
allow such an article to be printed 
in our college newspaper?' As I 
mentioned before, as long as it has 
good journalistic taste, and intend- 
ed no libel, it will be accepted for 
publication. People do not realize 
that just because I allow something 
to be published doesn't mean I 
agree with the article. There is an 
article in the paper today that I 
completely dsagree with, but ob- 
viously that doesn't give me the 
right not to publish it. 

Well, next year is another year, 
I hope. 

Best wishes,

Congratulations on the name 
change of the campus newspaper. 
Keep up the good work. 

The last visit I made to D.V.C. 
was in the early part of this year, 
and I was shocked to find that 
someone had taken it upon himself 
to destroy a long-standing tradition 
at the school. I'm referring to 
Chinko Lane. 

Not too many years ago I was a 
freshmen at D.V.C. and I disliked 
the treatment I was subjected to by 
the upper classmen. The following 
year I was one of the upperclass- 
men subjecting the freshmen to the 
same treatment I received. 

How anyone can completely dis- 
regard the property of others as to 
destroy it intentionally is beyond 


The theme of today's young peo- 
ple is "Love" and "Peace". I hope 
this is not an example of it! 


Peter M. Coonev '69 












One hundred seventy-five of a total of 
two hundred students shut down our 
college for two days in March, 1938, ac- 
cording to a recent article in the Daily 
Intelligencer, the local newspaper. The 
reason? The dean was too strict. Also 
apparent was the fact that such action 
proved to be sufficient stimulus for the 
Board of Directors to consider student 

Actions, analogous to those of 1938, 
are usually the result of the frustration 
of legitimate change. Most other colleges 
recognize the mature capabilities of their 
students, and change is effected, by stu- 
dents, without resorting to drastic meas- 

The fact that this is not a liberal arts 
institution is not license for policy makers 
here to use outdated educational man- 
agement techniques that amount to "pro- 
tecting the student from himself". Similar 
attitudes, on the part of administrators, 
and particularly the Board of Trustees, 
have resulted in the pervading atmos- 
phere of frustration prevalent among the 
student body. 

The slightest controversy evokes imme- 
diate, ana overwhelming response by the 
administration. One wonders why the 
policymakers refuse to acknowledge the 
fact that healthy controversy is the foun- 
dation of healthy change. Over-response 
seems to indicate a certain fear, by the 
administration, of the student body. 

An attempt is made to placate the 
students when occasionally we are tossed 
a taste of change through our Student 
Government. However, these minute 
changes are merely scraps; no meaningful 
change takes place. This is a mistake on 
the part of policymakers because it only 
increases student desire for major changes 
which, in turn, creates greater frustration. 

It is known that desire increases as 
the goal is neared, and, in the same 
sense, thwarting of the goal increases 
frustration. And we are a frustrated lot. 

Past experience indicates that there 
will be a continuation of outdated poli- 
cies, and staunch resistance to progres- 
sive changes or concessions for the stu- 
dent body.

They Shoot 

Don't They? 

Was the Army wrong in sentencing 
Lt. William Calley to life imprisonment? 
I question the audacity of their decision 
to "pin only Calley to the wall" when 
the atrocities he committed happen every 
day in Viet Nam. He was not the only 
man to fire on civilians on that particular 
day, yet only his hide is sought. It's not 
unheard of to see G. I's toss candy among 
the Vietnamese children who naturally 
scramble for it. But in the ensuing scram- 
ble they get blown to bits by the grenade 
which follows the candy. 

Is it right to kill the civilians? There 
are two trends of thought on this matter. 
Many people feel that this doesn't hurt 
anything because many of the day's 
peaceful civilians become that very 
night's terrorists. They would just as 
soon slit a G. I.'s throat as look at him. 
You can't really tell until they try some- 
thing, but by then it's too late — because 
you or your buddy is dead. But among 
these same people arc innocent civilians. 
Just like any other race of people, there 
are bad ones in the grou^ who ruin it 
for everyone. Are they, the innocent, to 
be killed too? Imagine f^r a minute a 
group of soldiers coming to your town 
and killing all the Italians because an 
Italian had killed a G. I. 

How do you handle a war that isn't 
ours, a war which we shouldn't even be 
in? It's a war in which those G.I.s who 
are lucky enough to make it back are 
hardly welcomed gratuitously by this 
country. Those G.I.s who joined right 
after high school arc catching hell trying 
to find jobs. There are no welcome-home 
parades as with previous wars. It's I 
very different war, in that we seemingly 
aren't there to win it. How can you 
sav that we are fighting wholeheartedly 
when the people in Viet Nam don't even 
want us there? American lives are just 
being sacrificed while everything that 
is trying to be done to end or speed up 
the war is either held up by political red 
tape or it is at the discretion of our "all- 
knowing" president. An added problem 
now with the Calley incident will be 
that the G.I.'s are going to be very much 
aware of what they do, and what they 
arc ordered to do.

How does war affect us, the average 
citizen? Unless there is someone you 
know in it, you probably just read about 
the number of casualties reported for 
the week and think, "Well, a lot of G.I.'s 
died this week". If you know someone 
there or someone who has been there, it 
means a little more to you. Through their 
relaying their fears and experiences you 
face quite a shocking aspect of what 
really goes on. The most affected are 
those to lose loved ones in the war. It's 
all too shocking an affair to forget easijy. 
There's no end in sight. In fact, there 
isn't even a war — Congress forgot to de- 
clare it! Just my invagination!

Bureau of 
Public Affairs 


A number of college students 
and others have requested the 
views of the Department of State 
on a "Joint Treaty of Peace be- 
tween the People of the United 
States and the People of South 
Viet-Nam and North Viet-Nam" 
which is currently being circulated 
by the National Student Associa- 

Provisions of "Treaty" 

This document: 

— demands "immediate and total" 
withdrawal of United States 
forces from Viet-Nam, but says 
nothing about withdrawal of the 
North Vietnamese forces from 
South Viet-Nam, Laos and Cam- 

— places the communist side under 
no obligation to release the 
Americans they hold prisoner, 
and requires Hanoi only to "en- 
ter discussions" on the question. 

— obligates the United States to re- 
move the government of South 
Viet-Nam, a government which 
was constitutionally elected to 
office by the people of that coun- 

— contains no provision for ending 
the fighting in Laos or Cam- 
bodia, other than a reiteration of 
intention to respect the Geneva 
Accords of 1954 and 1962, which 
have been violated by North 
Viet-Nam ever since. 

—contains no provision for interna- 
tional supervision of the imple- 
mentation of any of its terms. 

The provisions of this paper are 
in essence the same terms which 
have been put forward repeatedly 
over the past two years by the com- 
munist delegation in Paris. They 
have not proved acceptable to any 
political group in South Viet-Nam 
except the Viet Cong. 

What's Blocking Progress 
Toward Peace? 

The United States and the Re- 
public of Viet-Nam have proposed 

People's Peace 


a program for peace which in- 
cludes an immediate ceasefire 
throughout Indochina under effec- 
tive international supervision; with- 
drawal of outside forces; a political 
settlement in South Viet-Nam 
which reflects the existing relation- 
ship of political forces; an Indo- 
china peace conference; and imme- 
diate and unconditional release of 
all prisoners of war held by both 
sides. Our two governments have 
stated that we are prepared to ne- 
gotiate seriously on trie basis of 
these proposals. At the same time, 
we are prepared to discuss the pro- 
posals of the communist side as 
well, without any preconditions. 

The communist response has 
been an adamant refusal to engage 
in discussions on a peace settle- 
ment unless their demands are ac- 
cepted in advance. It is this posi- 
tion which has blocked any prog- 
ress toward peace. It is this posi- 
tion which those who want peace 
should try to change. 

To The Editor: 

This letter is intended to bring a 
chronic situation to the attention of 
the students. 

Although our "student newspa- 
per" is purported to be uncen- 
sored, there seems to be another 
form of administrative interference 
in existence. Recently contributors 
to the paper have been summoned 
to the Office of the Dean of Stu- 
dents to "review", and "discuss" 
the content of their contributions. 
More recently two contributions 
were deleted entirely from an issue 
as a result of administrative "re- 

If that isn't harassment, then 
what is? 

— Dave Wade 


(Continued from page 3) 

The time for change is ever present; 
however, this college was due for change 
years ago. Major changes are too long 

Both administration and students are 
aware that the glacid exterior of our col- 
lege is not representative of current in- 
ternal feelings and attitudes; therefore 
why maintain the deception? What meas- 
ures are mvessary to effect change in the 
stagnant policies of this institution?

Anyone you know? 



Americans revolted by the massacre of 
baby harp seals, the threatened extinc- 
tion of whales, and the killing of polar 
bears have a golden opportunity to trans- 
late their justifiable outrage into direct 

An incensed citizenry can strike a tell- 
ing blow against the brutabry and need- 
less slaughter by writing their representa- 
tives in Congress, demanding they vote 
for the Harris-Pryor Bill of Rights for 
Ocean Mammals. 

Jointly sponsored by Sen. Fred R. 
Harris (D.-Okla.) and Rep. David Pryor 
(D.-Ark.), the Bill would: 

1. Make it a criminal offense for any 
American to kill seals, poL« Dears, 
whales, sea lions, walruses, or any 
other ocean mammal, 

2. Ban the importation into the United 
States of all products from ocean 
mammals, thus removing the eco- 
nomic incentive for their slaughter, 

8. Phase out the seal kill on our Pir- 
bilof Islands without abrogating 
the current treaty with Japan and 
Canada. The United States now 
agrees to kill seals on land for 
those two countries in exchange 
for which they prohibit their na- 
tionals from killing seals in the 
open waters. The treaty, which ex- 
pires in 1976, gives Japan and 
Canada the option of accepting 
their shares in the annual kill in 
dollars — as they have done in past 
years; or, if they insist upon the 
skins, the Aleuts will kill 18,000 
seals for them each year until 1976, 

4. Direct the United States State De- 
partment to initiate a truly inter- 
national treaty in which all coun- 
tries agree to stop killing ocean 
mammals, both on land and sea. 

The Governments of the United States 
and Canada must be told by their em- 
ployers — the public — that barbarity 
which stuns the minds and sickens the 
hearts of all decent people must be out- 

Right now is the time to push for 
passage of the Harris-Pryor Bill— which 
bans slaughtering the 42,000 seals usually 
clubbed for the purported benefit of the 
U. S. Treasury — before the next Pribilof 
kill begins the end of June. A copy of 
the Harris-Pryor Bill may be obtained

O. H. Softball 

The O.H. Club decided that they 
should get involved in some sport 
activity. Since this is spring and 
softball is the thing, the O.H. Club 
now has a softball team. 

Their first game was on Thurs- 
day, April 15. They played against 
Ulman Hall 1st floor. The game 
was ended in the fifth inning with 
a score of 48 to 6, Ulman winning. 
Their second game was with Dairy 
on Tuesday, April 20. The O.H. 
team had to forfeit the game be- 
cause they had only six players 
show up. The other members could 
not appear because they were at a 
Biology help class. Who knows 
what will come up in the following 

If you watch one of their games, 
you're in for a lot of laughs. At the 
first game there was about 40-50 
students watching the game and 
having a million laughs. Even the 
O.H. players were laughing so hard 
that tney could not even throw the 
ball. One player instead of catch- 
ing the ball tnrows his glove at it. 
When one of the O.H. players was 
at bat, he was so amazed that he 
hit the ball, that the bat went fly- 
ing and almost knocked the catcher 

As you have noticed, I did not 
mention any of the players' names 
because they don't know who will 
be playing at the game until 15 
minutes before the game. They run 
all over the campus trying to dig up 
anyone to play with tnem. 

The seven regular players are not 
bad at all; they just need a little 
more practice. You can say one 
good thing for them: they just don't 

sit back on their butts and criticize 
and make fun of other people do- 
ing their best. They put up a good 
game, do their best and always 
have a good time. 

The school should be proud of 
any student who goes out and tries 
to excel at a sport that he is not 
good in, rather than sitting back 
and saying "I can't." 

P.S. — The catcher looks great in 
that chiffon negligee. 

Bowling Report 

April 29, 1971, will mark the closing 
of another successful season of intra- 
mural bowling. On the 29th the' Food 
Industry Team, who has won the first 
half of the season, will bowl against 
either the Work Hall or Goldman Hall 
team who are presently fighting for first 
position in the second half of the sea- 
son. As of April 22, the two teams were 
one half of a game apart with Work 
Hall leading. * 

Intramural trophies will be awarded to 
members of the teams finishing in first 
and second place at the end of the sea- 
son. A special trophy for high average 
and outstanding achievement in the in- 
tramural league will be awarded to Bob 
Abramson, the league secretary, who has 
averaged 174 and scored over 25 games 
over 200, more than any bowler in the 
league's history. 

The Intramural League wishes to con- 
gratulate Bob on these outstanding 
achievements because Bob will be trans- 
ferring to Elizabethtown College to major 
in math. The members of the Intramural 
League wish Bob good luck in his en- 
deavors, and in his bowling. The mem-

A.M., the annual Homecoming Par- 
ade will begin winding its way 
through Doylestown with Home-

and Parade Marshal Roy Nassau 
leading the way. In addition to the 
colorful floats and bands, students 
are invited to participate in the 
festivities by decorating cars and 
joining the parade. In addition to 
the awards for best float and car, 
dormitories will be decorated to

for the Alumni, What the Associa- 
tion can do for the student." The 
day will be concluded with a social 
for the Alumni in Mandell Hall.

The first impression of practical- 
ly every girl that entered DVC this 
semester is the beauty of the cam- 
pus. The lake, the orchards, the 
whole setting is pretty. 

Many feel that the college is not 
prepared for girls. They are hope- 
ful that dorm facilities will be pro- 
vided as soon as possible. The 
lounge, which all the girls appre- 
ciate, should be expanded to han- 
dle future female additions to the 
campus. The lounge enables all of 
us to really get acquainted and, as 
one girl commented, "All of the 
girls are so nice! There's not one 
that I dislike." 

"Wall-to-wall men" was the ans- 
wer that amused me when I asked 
one coed for her first impression of 
DVC, to which another girl replied, 
"Not many good-looking ones." So 
much for one girl's opinion. 

Jill Kaufman was disappointed 
because most conversations with 
DVC boys never got further than 
their saying "hi" and "how are 
you?" However, she said recently 
that things are looking up. Come 
on, guys! -You have few girls on 
campus, so make them feel at

New policies for the new year 
will be presented to the students 
for their opinions before it is pre- 
sented to the Administration. The 
Student Government is planning 
to lessen the load of the Student 
Affairs Committee. They also want 
to become the center of communi- 
cations on campus. Ted Kabat 
would take care of posting the 
times and places of all meetings 
and events. A seminar class will be 
set up and be presented by the 
faculty in a few weeks. The pur- 
pose of this is to get students to 
start talking about the problems 
the college and students have with 
relationship to the community. The 
seminar will also deal with the 
problems between the student and 
the school. 

David Farrar, President of the 
Student Government, says that 
their main problem is that there is 
not enough students supporting 
them and their activities. 

The Student Government meet- 
ings are on every Monday night at 
7:15 P.M. in the Student Govern- 
ment room in Work Hall. There 
will be a Student Body meeting 
about every two weeks. This is in 
order to let students say what they 
want and to express their ideas. 
This semester there will be assem- 
blies on the draft and one on drugs. 
The Student Government is giving 
a concert on October 23, 1971.

The Alumni Association is look- 
ing forward to an especially active 
Homecoming weekend during this, 
the 75th Anniversary of the Col- 
lege. In addition to the traditional 
Homecoming activities scheduled 
for Friday, October 15 and Satur- 
day, October 16, the Alumni Asso- 
ciation will hold its annual Alumni 
Day on Sunday, October 17. 

We look forward to having many 
alumni arrive on the campus on 
Friday to participate in the pep ral- 
ly that evening. 

Saturday's activities will include 
the Homecoming parade in the 
morning, the afternoon football 
game, and a gala dinner dance at 
the Fiesta Treadway Motor Inn at 
the Willow Grove Exchange. 

On Sunday morning the Associa- 
tion will hold its annual member- 
ship meeting. Featured will be the 
installation of the Association's of- 
ficers-elect and addresses by Dr. 
Work and Mr. Linta. Following a 
buffet luncheon in the Dining Hall, 
the members of the Association will 
again assemble, this time to parti- 
cipate in an Open Forum-a dis- 
cussion session where the alumni 
will have an opportunity to offer 
suggestions as to how the Alumni 
Association can more effectively 
meet the needs of the College, stu- 
dents at the College, and the mem- 
bers of the Association itself. 

Each year the alumni look for- 
ward to the Homecoming opportu- 
nity to renew acquaintances with 
the College, its students, and fellow 
graduates. It looks like this year's 
Homecoming will provide that op- 
portunity better than ever before. 
To those of you readers who are 
among the alumni — be here, plan 
to spend the weekend, and partici- 

New Faculty 





Mr. Tom Zimmerman was bom on a 
third-generation farm in Spencerville, 
Ohio. In addition to farming Mr. Zim- 
merman's other interests are in the acade- 
mic and musical fields. While attending 
high school he became a member of the 
band and also the F.F.A. chapter and 
subsequently was their vice president. 
This gave him an opportunity to travel 
to the national convention in Kansas City. 

Tom completed his undergraduate 
work at Ohio State University where he 
majored in agronomy and soils. He re- 
presented the University's Agronomy 
Club at the Agronomy Society's National 
Convention as a delegate and partici- 
pated in soil judging. 

Mr. Zimmerman received his masters 
degree in turf management at Penn 
State University. He is now completing 
work for his Doctorate. His thesis is con- 
cerned with evaluating over eighty dif- 
ferent soil mixtures for golf greens and 
playing fields under actual conditions of 
compaction. He tested compacted soils 
over a five-year period for percolation, 
fertility, porosity, moisture utilization, 
and particle stability and has presented 
two papers at the Agronomy Society's 
National Convention on this work. 

Mr. Tom Zimmerman is living in Sou- 
derton, Pa. He has been married for four 
years, and presently he and his wife are 
expecting a child in December. His in- 
terests include photography, music, and 
a wide array of sports.

Planning specialist by Geigy Agri- 
cultural Chemicals, a Division of 
CIBA-GEIGY Corporation. His of- 
fice is located at CIBA-GEIGY 
facilities in Harrison, New York. 

Mr. Nicas, who joined Geigy in 
1964 as a Field Sales Representa- 
tive, has held the positions of Dis- 
trict Manager and Assistant Re- 
gional Manager of the Central Re- 

Prior to joining Geigy, he was a

Ortho Division of California Che- 
mical Company. 

Recipient of a B.S. (1959) de- 
gree from Delaware Valley College, 
Mr. Nicas has done graduate work 
in Agricultural Economics and 
Marketing at Cornell University. 

Mr. Nicas and his wife, the for-

Dr. Berril Gold, having been born in 
New York City, is not exactly the farm- 
boy type, but he does admit to having 
grown up with a few trees and grasses 
in Van Courtland Park. 

Dr. Gold achieved his Bachelors de- 
crees from Columbia University where 
le majored in geology. He is not one to 
le caught up fn some office; hence he 
>ecame interested in soils and soil con- 
servation. He received his Masters de- 
gree in soil physics from Rutgers Univer- 
sity, where he worked on the problem 
of aeration and oxygen diffusion rates in 
soil. He also completed his doctoral 
thesis at Rutgers which involved the 
utilization of sediment from the Dela- 
ware River. He used this otherwise wast- 
ed soil for improving the physical con- 
dition of sandy South Jersey soils. 

After his work at Rutgers he was em- 
ployed with the Soil Conservation Ser- 
vice in Luzerne County in Pennsylvania. 

Dr. Gold really gets into playing the 
banjo and specializes in traditional 
American folk music. He enjoys speed 
skating and was the lead-off batter for 
his Softball team to the tune of a .691 
average. According to Dr. Gold the 
Brooklyn Dodgers are alive and well, 
playing ball in L. A.

This being our first issue this 
year, we are not really overburden- 
ed with club news. We do, how- 
ever, have a few choice morsels 
which may or may not be of inter- 

If you've been wondering about 
all those people in the apple trees, 
they are members of the Hort Club, 
which sells its apples from 4 to 5 
every afternoon (except Friday) 
and Saturday mornings. There's 
also talk of bootlegging cider at 
home football games. 

Also quite busy is the Contem- 
porary Club which is forming a 
play of some sort, hopefully to be 
presented this year. They are in 
desperate need of actors and ac- 
tresses; therefore, anyone who is 
even vaguely interested, please 
contact any officer. Or better yet, 
join the club. 

Speaking of good acting, the 
band (yes, freshmen— we have one) 
is also looking for recruits. Prospec- 
tive members are cordially remind- 
ed that it is worth X credit, as is 
membership in the Glee Club. 

The Photography Club also is 
planning a full schedule. Already 
being planned are several movies, 
lessons in blackroom techniques, 
and a field trip. 

We have a sad note from the In- 
ter-varsity. It seems the administra- 
tion felt the club was too "discri- 
minatory". It seems it "strongly ad- 
vised" them to discontinue their 
acting as a formal club. They do, 
however, have permission to hold 
open discussions. Neumen Club, 
look outl 

Ski Club to Europe? It is plan- 
ned, as is the trip to Colorado or 
perhaps Vermont at Easter, not to 
mention the short weekend trips. 

WAPO to return? Delta Tau Al- 
pha Club dead? Science Society, 
still remember Lake Archer? 

For answers to these and other 
puzzling questions, tune in same 
column next month.

Attica— America's 

Now that the smoke has cleared 
and the blood dried at Attica Pri- 
son, it's time for some calm reflec- 
tions on the situation. Immediately 
after the tragedy alarmists on the 
left pressed for the removal of 
those "fascist pigs who gunned 
down the inmates." Meanwhile, 
those on the right wanted a crack- 
down on the dirty niggers who 
started the thing." 

Major prison uprisings are not 
new to our society. Local residents 
will most notably remember those 
at Holmesburg, and Smyrna, Dela- 
ware. These uprisings are not iso- 
lated incidents, but just another 
phase in the plan of our home- 
grown revolutionaries to plunge 
our country into chaos. Watts - 
Kent State - Attica, these are the 
rally cries being heard. The at- 
tempt to destroy our system of 
higher education has failed some- 
what, and now the movement has 
concentrated on our penal institu- 

Many of today's prisoners are al- 
ready violent and dehumanized by 
the time they get into prison. They 
are steeped in the radicalism of the 
Black Panther, S.D.S. and the like. 
Yesterday's fire-bombers and draft- 
board raiders are today's inmates. 

The decay that has crept into 
America like a racer is far too wide 
a topic to cover here. But, what can 
we do about the situation in the 
prjsons? We could isolate the small 
group of hard-core revolutionaries 
from the rest of the prison popula- 
tion, or put them in a maximum 
security institution. Nearly every- 
one agrees that prison conditions 
should be improved. However, the 
prison at Smyrna was hailed as one 
of the most progressive in the coun- 
try. Therefore the excuse of bar- 
baric prisons is not entirely valid. 
It would be a mistake to give the 
criminals all the comforts of home. 
We did not ask them to commit 
crimes. Why should they be re- 
warded for doing so? 

The root of the problem is the 
cancer in our society. Permissive- 
ness has allowed Communism to 
bring us closer to the end. Educa- 
tion, discipline, and patriotism 
need to be pumped into our chil- 
dren. This will make for fewer 
prisoners in the future. In the pri- 
sons themselves there must be 
more understanding and less bigo- 
try on both sides of the bars. Com- 
missioner Oswald showed courage 
and understanding in negotiating 
directly with the rioters. He agreed 
to thirty of the thirty-two demands, 
all the demands that were meant to 
improve conditions. The amnesty 
demand was of course impossible 
to grant. The rioters wanted only 
to save their own skins and be 
liberated in some "non-imperialist" 

Until the conditions that started 
these outbreaks can be relieved, 
let's hope that the next time there 
will be more understanding on all

Alumni Office: 

30 August 71 

Just a line to congratulate and wish 
the college a joyous and fulfilling year. 
I regret that I can not attend the festivi- 
ties this year at Delaware Valley. I'm 
sure those attending the Homecoming 
and Parents Day events will have a great 
time. I only wish I could attend to help 
honor and celebrate Delaware Valleys 
75th year. 

Since I left school in May of 1970, I 
have been indoctorinated into the U. S. 
Navy. Having finished number two in 
my class at Naval Communications Train- 
ing Center in Pensacola, Fla., I am cur- 
rently doing an 18 month tour in Ger- 
many. I often reflect upon my years at 
Del. Val. on all of the good times I had 
and the wonderful people I met. Through 
that experience at Del. Val. I have been 
able to cope with any situation and make 
the best of it. 

I wish Delaware Valley College a hap- 
py Seventy-Fifth Birthday and many 
more years of educating and learning. 

Hoping to see everyone in 1973.

Mrs. Jafnes Work, 

Administrative Assistant 
Delaware Valley College 
Doylestown, Pennsylvania 18901 

Dear Mrs. Work: 

I hope that you do not consider this 
correspondence in the same light that 
Carl Pfitzenmayer and I often consider- 
ed those lengthy diatribes from Salem 
Fine. It takes a great deal to move me 
to write a letter and to express my feel- 
ings on a matter. I want you to know 
that I feel very strongly about the qual- 
ity of the publications from Delaware 
Valley College. The Gleaner has become 
something to look forward to under the 
tasteful supervision of Rich Polgar and 
Gary Miller. They have given the col- 
lege a publication of which faculty, ad- 
ministration, and most of all, student 
body should be proud, and they deserve 
the gratitude of all concerned. It, this 
past issue, was the best I have ever seen. 

I have kept in touch with many of 
my classmates, and they share this opin- 
ion. They also have expressed a similar 
point of view concerning the paper. In 
similar point of view, I refer to my own 
opinion that the paper has become a 
meaningless and disgusting publication. 

Perhaps age has mellowed my think- 
ing since last May, however. I still be- 
lieve that I am somewhat objective. As 
you know, I have always vehemently 
opposed Administrative "Censorship, ' 
but I think that too often we label con- 
structive guidance with this term. In my 
opinion, The Ram could stand some of 
this guidance. The paper has far out- 
stepped its bounds. It is printing little 
more than editorial opinion with out sub- 
stantiating its views. I refer to the article 
titled "Room Inspection and Such." 
While I feel that this individual has the 
right to voice his opinion, I seriously 
question its appearance on the front 
page. Generally, editorials are printed in 
a section where they are clearly labeled 
as opinion. The phrase in heavy print on 
the front page, "Repression does not a 
college make , is an irresponsible inuen- 
do. The cartoon which also appears on 
the front page is in poor taste as well. 
Irresponsibility is often a catylist for so 
called repression. If a staff of a college 
financed publication becomes a gossip 
column which lacks objectivity, then 
even I must admit that some administra- 
tive guidance is necessary. 

While I know only too well the amount 
of work that goes into layout, are those 
responsible for layout so vain that they 
warrant their names in heavy print in a 
separate box among the advertisements? 
The college should endeavor to foster 
professionalism in its students, such van- 
ity is hardly professional. 

I hope that the paper improves. It is 
hardly an effective voice of the student 
body in its present form. Many people 
worked hard to produce an atmosphere 
of responsible dialogue between the stu- 
dent body and administration. The Fur- 
row was an important instrument in 
achieving this. The Ram's irresponsible 
approach could effectively make all that 
effort for naught and break down exist- 
ing channels of communication. I hope 
that my opinion filters down to the ad- 
visory board to the publications. 

Thank you for your time and thought- 
ful consideration, I remain,

This year the Student Govern- 
ment seems to be spending quite 
a bit of money on the mixers. It 
would be great if they were making 
money on them, but according to 
the Student Government they have 
been losing money. In my opinion, 
the bands which appeared at the 
mixers these past few weeks, with 
one exception, weren't the greatest, 
this one exception being the group 
"Mushroom". They had no excuse 
for being poor because they are 
performers rather than a rock band. 
Of course, it doesn't much matter 
how great these bands are because 
the student turnout is poor. I think 
if Student Government were to 
have the mixers every other week, 
like in the past years, the student 
turnout and quality of the bands 
would no doubt improve because 
they can't get much worse! 

Lane By-Pass 

As you all know, when a student 
wants to get to class or from one 
building to another, he takes the 
shortest route. This route is not al- 
ways a paved walkway. I believe 
the school should lay out some 
money to improve the walkways on 

The "Ginkgo Lane By-Pass" is 
just a strip of dirt, running from 
Segal Hall through Ginkgo Lane to 
Mandell. Since so many students 
and teachers use this walkway, I 
and many other students feel that 
the college should have this paved. 
On rainy days this walkway is just 
one long strip of mud. Under these 
conditions the students walk along- 
side the path on the grass. By our 
doing this the grass is being killed, 
and the path is continuously being 
widened. What type of pathway is 
this for an Agricultural college to 
have on the main part of the cam- 

There is another walkway which 
runs from Ulman Hall to Mandell, 
which is another dirt path. It is 
very convenient for students living 
in Ulman, Barness and Cooke Halls 
who are going to and from classes 
in Mandell. I am sure that the stu- 
dents, Dr. Garrett, and Dr. Sten- 
son would appreciate a paved walk- 
way through this area. 

A paved walkway would make 
these areas look better, and it 
would also be easier on students' 
shoes. This is an Agricultural col- 
lege, so why can't we have walk- 
ways that are both attractive and 
convenient to the students?

Campus "A Buzz" With 
Apiculture Activity 

Since the conclusion of the Spring 
semester, many honey-bee-related 
activities have taken place on the 
D.V.C. Campus. 

In June a three day short course 
in beekeeping was offered under 
the direction of Dr. Berthold. 
Twenty-nine persons took the 
course, with some coming from as 
far away as Virginia, Massachusetts 
and New York. Following the short 
course, the College hosted a joint 
meeting of the Bucks and Mont- 
gomery County Bee Associations. 
Mr. Milton Strieker, a queen breed- 
er, honey producer, and pollinator 
from Stockton, N. J., was guest 

The College's collection of his- 
torical bee hives also grew over the 
summer. In addition to a straw 
skept, Quimbry hives, and standard 
hives, a German style hive was pur- 
chased and a Polish style hive was 
donated to the College by Mr. 
Joseph Dymek of Philadelphia. 

With the return of the students 
this fall, the Apiarist Society is 
again in high gear. From their pro- 
ceeds from last year's honey sales 
and A-Day, they contributed $100 
towards the purchase of a bee 
blower, which is a device used to 
remove bees from the honey comb 
before the liquid honey is removed. 

This year the Apiarist Society is 
again selling honey at home foot- 
ball games and at a discount to 
faculty, staff, and students on cam- 
pus. On October 3 they had their 
first field day at which time they 
planted a wind break of hemlocks 
in the College Apiary. They will 
also be having other activities 
throughout the year, and anyone 
interested should consult the hexa- 
gon-shaped signs for information as 
to the time, place, and program.

Doylestown, Penna.* 

Dear Dr. Work, 

It was my opportunity and privilege 
to represent Delaware Valley College at 
the recent national convention for agri- 
cultural college editors. This convention, 
which was held at Cocoa Beach, Florida, 
was a huge success for all who were able 
to attend. THE GLEANER once again 
took first place in the categories in which 
it was entered, and was praised by many 
people for its originality. 

This convention was the annual gather- 
ing for all of the members of A.A.A.C.E. 
This group, the American Association of 
Agricultural College Editors, is compris- 
ed of six hundred publishers and faculty 
members of universities who are respon- 
sible for the editing and publication of 
college agricultural articles or magazines. 
Through the work of one of its members.

to be Del Val's largest cross coun-

WASHINGTON, D. C.-The National 
Research Council has been called upon 
again to advise the National Science 
Foundation in the selection of candidates 
for the Foundation's program of Gradu- 
ate Fellowships. Panels of outstanding 
scientists appointed by the Research 
Council will evaluate applications of can- 
didates. Final selection will be made by 
the Foundation, with awards to be an- 
nounced on March 15, 1972. 

The NSF Graduate Fellowship Pro- 
gram is being restructured for the 1972- 
1973 academic year. Applicants must be 
beginning graduate students by the Fall 
of 1972, or must not have completed 
more than one calendar year of full-time 
or part-time graduate study by the Fall 
of 1972. Subject to the availability of 
funds, new fellowships awarded in the 
Spring of 1972 will be for periods of 
three years, the second and third years 
contingent on certification to the Foun- 
dation by the fellowship institution of 
the student's satisfactory progress toward 
an advanced degree in the sciences. 

These fellowships will be awarded for 
study or work leading to master's or doc- 
toral degrees in the mathematical, phy- 
sical, medical, biological, engineering, 
and social sciences, and in the history 
and philosophy of science. Awards will 
not be made in clinical, education, or 
business fields, in history or social work, 
or for work leading to medical, dental, 
law or joint Ph.D. -professional degrees. 
All applicants must be citizens of the 
United States and will be judged solely 
on the basis of ability. The annual 
stipend for Graduate Fellows will be 
$3,600 for a twelve-month tenure with 
no dependency allowances. 

Applicants will be required to take

Intramural bowling is now the 
fastest growing and one of the lar- 
gest sports at DVC. Presently in 
the league's two divisions (green 
and gold) there are a total of 18 
four-man teams. There are 10 teams 
in the green division and 8 teams 
in the gold division. 

On September 9 the league be- 
gan the 1971-1972 season with the 
election of league officers. The lea- 
gue president is Conrad Adami; 
vice president, Elmer Detriqk; sec- 
retary, John Gaskill; and treasurer, 
Rich Tower. It was also announced 
that the league would strive for two 
significant goals this year. The 
most important goal is maintaining 
a high rate of weekly attendance. 
Early indications show that during 
the first four weeks, attendance did 
not drop below 70. If this rate of 
attendance is maintained through- 
out the league schedule ending in 
April, it will mean that intramural 
bowling will probably be the most 
active school function on an hourly 
participation basis at DVC, and 
without doubt the fastest-growing 
school activity since Conrad Adami 
"took over" control four years ago 
when the league consisted of 12 

The second major goal this year 
is to increase interest in the league. 
For example, this year there are 
plans for trophies for the first, sec- 
ond, and third place teams, per- 
sonalized bowling shirts, a banquet 
in April plus several other projects 
which will be announced in the

Drew's Views 

by Drew Kotalic 

The fact that Delaware Valley 
has won its home opener has in- 
stilled into this college a school 
spirit. The team has looked good, 
and has high hopes of attaining a 
winning season. After rolling up 
358 yards total offense against Al- 
bright, this team looks ready for 
anyone. Coaches Craver, Drom- 
gold, Mitchell, Nice, and Brodheag 
should be given a vote of confi- 
dence. Homecoming weekend, the 
Aggies will host Grove City Col- 

Cross Country has its largest 
field this year. Twenty-two mem- 
bers have given coach Robert Bert- 
hold something to work with. Pre- 
liminary action has seeded Fresh- 
man, Tim Manning, a future stand- 
out at the Valley. 

Aggies Can 

By Ed Biddle 

How else could a team kick off 
its 75th Anniversary season, than 
by pulling down a decisive yet sur- 
prising upset over visiting Juniata 
on September 18th. 

Coach H. W. "Bill" Craver, be- 
gan his 8th year as head Aggie men- 
tor by demonstrating to the bipar- 
tisan Aggie crowd what potential 
he really possesses this year. It 
seems last year's 1-8 team has mol- 
ded into what may be a Middle At- 
lantic Conference contender. 

This year's 71 squad boasts 7 
seniors, 9 juniors, 13 sophomores, 
and 29 freshmen. They are lead by 
co-captains Dan Guers of the of- 
fense and Fred Beach of the de- 

From the very kickoff at the out- 
set of the game, it was very appar- 
ent to the visiting Indians, they 
were in for a hard hitting after- 

The Valley combined for 402 net 
yards as compared to only 122 for 
Juniata. Aggie signal caller, Jim 
Foote, was superb having one of 
his best college performances ever. 
That effort had vaulted him into 
the MAC lead in total yards pass- 

In the first quarter Jasper Mea- 
dows copped an excellent offensive 
drive by bumping in from the one. 
Bracchi added the PAT and the 
Aggies carried a 7-0 lead going into 
the second quarter. With only a 
little more than a minute remain- 
ing in the first half Richie Glenn 
raced 13 yards for the Valley's 13th 
point. The PAT attempt failed and 
at the half we lead 13-0. In the third 
quarter the DVC defense sprung a 
few leaks and allowed two Juniata 
scores. Bruce Brooks carried in 
from the one with the PAT conver- 
sion being blocked. The other score 
was a two yard jaunt by Dave 
Sparks. Sparks also successfully 
rambled for the two point conver- 
sion. At this point in the game Ju- 
niata held the lead for the first time, 
14-13. Early in the fourth quarter 
the Aggies regained the offensive 
touch when Foote hit Dan Guers 
with a 15 yard pass, which he 
scampered all the way to the Jn- 
niata five yard line with. Moments 
later Foote followed the wedge 
blocking of junior guard, Rich 
Keown, on a fourth down and goal 
from the one yard line into the end 
zone. They also successfully execut- 
ed the two point conversion. That 
proved to be all the scoring as 
DVC went on to nail down a 21-14 

The Valley's second encounter 
was on September 25th with Mora- 
vian College. 


by Joe Russ 

Fumbles and a lack of offensive 
fire handed Delaware Valley its 
first loss of the season to the hands 
of Moravian, 13-7. The Valley was 
behind the entire contest, but its 
defense remained stubborn and 
stopped scoring opportunities all 
afternoon. The first three quarters 
were marked by Moravian scores. 
After fumbling at the 22, Mora- 
vian's Dowling tossed a touchdown 
pass to Joseph; PAT was good, 7-0 
Moravian. In the second quarter, 
Moravian registered a 26 yard field 
goal. Half time score read 10-0 
Moravian. The Valley again fum- 
bled on their 29. A fine interception 
by Del-Val's Maloney was only 
canceled when a Foote pass was 
grabbed by Moravian's Gerhard. 
This mistake cost the Aggies a 26 
yard FG. 

The fourth quarter marked some 
offensive strength by the Valley. 
The Valley marched 80 yards to 
paydirt. A Foote to Vuroan TD 
pass was the scoring blow. How- 
ever, time ran out and the Valley 
had lost a heartbreaker. 




by Drew Kotalic 

The final 15 seconds proved dis- 
asterous for Albright College, and 
miraculous for Delaware Valley. 
The Aggies actually stole some- 
thing and got away with it. Dan 
Guers, the Valley's premier speed- 
ster, grabbed a Jim Foote aerial 
and raced 68 yards in the last sec- 
onds to give the Valley a stunning 
upset over a dismayed Parent's 
Day crowd of 5,000 at Albright. To 
recap earlier Glenn got Delaware 
Valley started, banging over from 
the 5; PAT was good, 7-0 Valley. 
In the third quarter following an 
interception, Kuhn powered over 
from 13 yards out. Orwig slammed 
over for the two point conversion 
and Albright led it, 8-7. A wild 
fourth quarter was started by an in- 
terception that cost Del-Val a 
touchdown. This time it was Mac 
Millian bursting over from the one; 
PAT was good, 15-7 Albright. The 
Valley erupted for an 8 play, 57- 
yard drive— Glenn taking it in from 
the one. Foster failed on the two 
point conversion. Albright at this 
point led 15-13. The door was open- 
ed again for the Aggies by a key 
manned defense. After absorbing a 
poor field position, 98 yards from 
paydirt, with 54 seconds left, the 
Aggies marched to the 32 where 
Guers capped the drive taking a 
Foote pass 68 yards to give the Val- 
ley a much deserved 20-15 win.

The Student Newspaper • Delaware Valley College November 12, 1971 

In the 

There has been some talk among 
the unapathetic students on cam- 
pus about the possibility of censor- 
ship in the student newspaper. To 
those students who have actively 
read the paper for the past few 
years, you already know this isn't 
an unusual topic at D.V.C. Now 
there is one more article on cen- 
sorship, and I hope it will be the 
last, not only for the paper's sake 
but also the studeht's. 

Last month the co-editors of The 
Ram, along with the publication's 
committee, met with Mrs. Work. 
Among many varied topics of dis- 
cussion, censorship and the use of 
discretion with editorials were 
talked about. It seems that a few 
graduates of D.V.C. were disturb- 
ed about the "anti-D.V.C." articles 
and editorials printed in the paper 
last year, and admittedly the cur- 
rent administration was disturbed 

Mrs. Work didn't want to put 
restrictions such as censorship on 
the paper, but some suggestions 
were made to improve possible con- 
troversial articles. It was suggested 
that any highly opinionated article 
be put under the editorial section 
and also have another article to 
dispute it in the same issue if it 
were possible. 

What this means is that if you 
have an idea for publication and 
you write it in good taste, without 
being libelous, it will be printed. 

In other words, the next time 
you have a complaint about D.V.C, 
don't complain about censorship in 
The Ram because there will be 
none, at least as long as I am editor.

Harmony At 


On October 1 and again on Octo- 
ber 27, seminars were held by he 
black students at Delaware Val- 
ley College. The purpose of these 
meetings was to take preliminary 
steps toward formation of an or- 
ganization to promote racial equal- 
ity and harmony at DVC. The 
group lists as its purposes the fol- 

1) to advance racial harmony. 

2) to create interest in DVC 

3) to take an active part in 
counseling and advising stu- 
dents in whatever personal 
and/or social problems they 
may have. 

4) to increase students involve- 
ment in community problems 
in order to break artificial bar- 
riers that are formed through 
ignorance and misinterpreta- 

Some of the problems that were 
discussed at the meetings were: 
mutual trust between the various 
races at DVC; the feelings of loyal 
friendship as opposed to a loyal 
friendship front; the problems and 
reservations found in interaction 
between the races at mixers, in 
class, on campus, or whatever; and 
many other topics. The objectives 
of these meetings and of this pro- 
posed organization is to promote 
racial harmony through an aware- 
ness and a disbanding of racial 

Attendance at the first seminar 
was very encouraging, and it 
doubled at the second. Views and 
opinions were heard from blacks, 
whites, student government repre- 
sentatives, faculty members, and 
administration representatives. One 
common observation voiced by all 
those in attendance was that there 
is a definite awareness of the prob- 
lem of race differences on campus, 
and that the organization can be a 
good beginning toward solving 
these problems, if the organization 
sticks to its objectives and if there 
is cooperation from all sides. If the 
organization, now nameless, is 
granted a charter by the Board of 
Trustees, membership will be com- 
prised of "any person who is a mem- 
ber of the DVC student body or 
faculty and who shows a definite 
interest in this organization and its 
purpose. . . *.

The Student Government had a 
fairly good treasury in the past, up 
until three weeks aeo, October 23. 
The people of Hiroshima think that 
they were hit with the biggest 
bomb of the century; well they 
were evidently not at the Fall Out- 
door Concert. The total cost of the 
concert was $3,815; the take at 
the door was $121, leaving the Stu- 
dent Government with a bomb of 
$3,694. Kenneth Risser, Student 
Government treasurer, reports the 
treasury now has about $1,000 left. 

The situation has reached such 
a critical point that the president, 
Dave Farrer was forced to put a 
hold on Student Government 
money. Any money that has been 
committed will be paid. They will 
not make any new commitments 
until they can evaluate the situa- 
tion furtner. 

Letters are being sent out to 
club and class presidents asking for 
donations for a Spring Concert. 
The Student Government is hop- 
ing for full cooperation from club 
and class presidents and for coop- 
eration from the students through 
their attendance at future concerts 
and mixers.

Club News 

Due to the overwhelming re- 
sponse to our plea for more club 
news, we have quite a selection of 
choice tidbits which will all, no 
doubt, be of interest to someone. 

Heading the list this month is 
the Science Society. This is one 
group who certainly deserves a lot 
of credit, for they seem to be the 
only club on campus who really 
care what the place looks like. 
They've resumed their work on 
cleaning up Lake Archer and are 
also working on a recycling project, 
soon to be opened near the Apiary 
Center. We strongly suggest that 
any students interested in this very 
worthwhile project see President 
Ira Niedweske. We further sug- 
gest that the club make Mr. Heaps, 
of the cafeteria, an honorary mem- 
ber, for his dedicated work in his 
own recycling project. 

Also quite busy is the Food In- 
dustry Club. They recently were 
guests at the General Food Corp., 
down in Dover, Del. They also 
hope to attend the Frozen Food 
Convention in New York, on Nov. 
15. A speaker from Rohm & Haas 
Co. is also scheduled to speak soon 
to the club on the subject of pesti- 
cides in food. 

Interested in hunting? If so, the 
place for you is in the Vel. Val. 
Fish and Game Club. The club is 
quite active in the Bucks County 
Fish and Game Club which has the 
facilities for shooting both large 
and small bored rifles, as well as 
for trapping. This club is new on 
campus, and new members are al- 
ways welcome. 

Very happy and tired this month 
are the members of the Orn. Hort. 
Club, who came through at Home- 
coming with a float like none ever 
seen before at DVC. Unlike the 
traditional tissue paper floats, OH 
used real flowers to create a mas- 
terpiece equalled in beauty only 
by their pretty OH queen, Miss 
Michele Sweeney, (ten points?) 
(Continued on page 2)

They are also the club respon- 
sible for the artistic corsages sold 
at both Homecoming and Parents 
Day. Hopefully they will soon be 
selling mum plants for Thanksgiv- 
ing. Go to it, O.H.! 

The Dairy Society is anticipating 
an interesting fall, with the up- 
coming trip and banquet held in 
conjunction with the Block and 
Bridle Club at the Collegeville Inn. 
The speaker will be Mr. Herman 
Perdy of Penn State. Congratula- 
tions must be given to the Dairy 
Collegiate Judging Team, which 
placed third at Columbus, Ohio, 
with Bruce Horning placing fourth 
overall. Also winning honors was 
our college-owned bull, a D.V.C. 
Canadian who was shown to all 
Pennsylvania after winning at 
many local cattle shows. 

Rumor has it that Delta Tau Al- 
pha, an invitation only club, is 
planning to become quite active 
this year. The club offers tutoring 
in English, Mathematics, Biology, 
and, of course, those beloved sub- 
jects, Chemistry and Physics. In- 
terested persons may contact any 
member for more information. 

We've been told that WAPO de- 
finitely will return, probably be- 
fore mis is published. They have 
reportedly expanded service to 24 
hours a day, and have wired the 
campus for even better reception. 

The Contemporary Club has de- 
cided to do something Contempo- 
rary! They gave a formal welcome 
to . the foreign students here at 
D.V.C. It proved to be an interest- 
ing experience for all who attend- 

And last but not least is the world 
renowned D.V.C. Band. It's inter- 
esting to see a group that can work 
so well together. Their performance 
in the parade was truly unique, as 
was their half-time show. 

Once again clubs are requested 
to submit any club news to the 
RAM, preferably before the dead-

There's a new interest group on cam- 
pus, which right now goes by the name 
of "Black Omnibus." The goals of the 
organization are stated very plainly in 
their constitution. It's basically to pro- 
mote racial harmony on D.V.C.'s cam- 
pus. And to quote the posters of their 
seminars, "If you don't think there's a 
racial problem on campus, then maybe 
you should take the time to come to one 
of these gatherings." 

The Black Omnibus was rejected in an 
attempt to be recognized last semester 
by the Board of Trustees on the grounds 
that, contrary to its very constitution, it 
was felt that it would in fact be more a 
detriment than an aid in improving ra- 
cial relations here. 

Thus far, two seminars have been 
held. The first's attendance was rather 
scrimpy. But the second showed im- 
proved interest since as the turnout 
nearly doubled. The meetings basically 
consisted of the audience airing its 
views on some of the problems or events 
which occur here. 

I've seen a number of reactions to this 
organization. Some fear that it's merely 
a vehicle to have an all-black organiza- 
tion on campus. Others think this means 
the intrusion of outside agitators. But 
those who have come out and partici- 
pated have found something quite dif- 
ferent. If you really want to find out 
for yourself, give up an hour of prime

In a book entitled "Hitchhiker's Hand- 
book," author Tom Grimm gives hints 
on how to hitch your way cross-country, 
cross-town or just cross-street. With his 
suggestions, Grimm has changed hitch- 
hiking from just another all-thumbs mode 
of getting a lift into an art form. 

Here are some of his suggestions: 

Always smile and look pleasant. 

Work on a driver's guilt feelings. "If 
a hitchhiker looks unclean and danger- 
ous, the driver's conscience doesn't 
bother him much." 

Look the driver in the eye. "Eye-to- 
eye contact makes him feel uneasy about 
driving past you." 

Use a designation sign instead of your 
thumb. Grimm says this attracts atten- 
tion and gives the driver some informa- 
tion. He also suggests writing "Help" 
or "I Give Green Stamps" on your sign 
or just holding it upside down. 

Other Grimm hints include using a 
huge, fake rubber thumb to attract at- 
tention, traveling with a guy for protec- 
tion if you're a girl, and having Thank 
You cards printed with your name and 
address engraved on them.

It is easy for Jewish students to pass

the color of their skin also classifies them 
as white. However, when it comes to 
the black students, there is a great deal 
of difficulty in trying to be white. Some 
may try to bleach their skin so that they 
eventually will begin to look white, and 
others try to adopt the white culture 
and ways of "the whites. Then, there are 
those black students who are proud of 
themselves and are happy to oe what 
they are. If you are black trying to be 
white or black being black the fact re- 
mains that you can't infiltrate the whites 
if for no other reason than because of the 
color of your skin. 

The administration of Delaware Val- 
ley College says that there is no racial 
strife on its campus. It is as apparent as 
the difference between night and day. 
The fact that people dont look alike, 
act alike, or talk alike, causes hostility 
towards the foreigners (Foreign to the 
majority). It is this reason why we are 
trying to form a certain group at this 
college campus. 

The proposed name of the group is 
"Black Omnibus". (If you dont know 
what Omnibus means look it up). The 
purpose of the group is racial harmony. 
In attempting to accomplish its goal, 
things like descent, learned behaviors, 
inherent behaviors, sublanguages, and 
slangs, will be discussed and defined in 
order to create better communications 
and understandings among the groups. 

The students are quite aware of the 
fact that an organization of this sort is 
needed. The administration is becoming 
aware of the fact that an organization 
is needed. Maybe one day Delaware Val- 
ley will be as heavenly as the adminis- 
tration makes it. This is evident by the 
attendance of the administration at these 
different meetings.

Getting To Know You 

Delaware Valley College is fortunate 
this year to have a group of girls on 
campus that are tremendously interest- 
ed in stirring up and demonstrating 
school spirit. They are none other than 
the cheerleaders. Altogether there are 
seven girls on the cheerleading squad 
at the present time, with practices being 
held since November 1st for the purpose 
of adding another regular squad member 
and two alternates. This will bring the 
squad to a total of eight regular mem- 
bers and two substitutes. The tryouts for 
the three additional positions will be the 
Monday before Thanksgiving vacation 
begins. Anyone interested in becoming a 
new member must attend the practices in 
order to learn the skills needed. 

Sophomore Debbie Yomer from War- 
rington, Pennsylvania, is the Captain of 
the 1971-1972 cheerleading squad. She 
graduated from Central Bucks West 
High School after her senior year but 
had three years at Philadelphia High 
School for Girls. Her major course of 
study is Chemistry but she manages to 
squeeze in time for membership in the 
Rifle Club and time for managing and 
scorekeeping for the baseball team. Ob- 
viously Det>bie is very interested in 
sports, but she also claims interest in 
cooking and animals. The presence of 
cheerleaders this year is partially due to 
Debbie's interest since only she and one 
other girl have returned from last year's 
squad. Her only wish now is that more 
students would demonstrate an interest 
in DVC athletic events since attendance 
and enthusiasm can sometimes be the 
difference between a winning and los- 
ing team. Debbie is also intereste i in re- 
cruiting enough male students to even- 
tually lead to the addition of tniXe cheer- 
leaders to the squad. 

The second returning member from 
last year is Carol Finnie from Holicong, 
Pennsylvania. Carol graduated <rom Cen- 
tral Bucks East High School and is in 
her sophomore year as a Biology major. 
Her other extracurricular activities in- 
clude membership in the Equine Club 
at DVC and a private Equine Club. In 
the past Carol has ridden in a number 
of equine shows for exhibition and com- 
petition using her own horse. Carol's 
reason for becoming a cheerleader is to 
help her meet new people and to de- 
monstrate her school spirit. 

Marcia Wal, from Huntingdon Val- 
ley, Pennsylvania, is a freshman biology 
major. She graduated from Gwynedd- 
Mercy Academy prior to admission to 
DVC. Her reason for being a cheerleader 
was to give herself, as a new co-ed at 
DVC, the opportunity to meet new 
people, to attend all the athletic events, 
and to demonstrate school spirit. 

Another freshman member of the 
cheerleading squad comes from Holland, 
Pennsylvania, and is a graduate of Coun- 
cil Rock High School. This is Nancy 
Coale. She too is a member of the 
Equine Club. Nancy's reason for being 
a cheerleader is to "help get the school 
spirit up to an amount that is at least

The Editor 

The Ram 

Delaware Valley College 

Doylestown, Pa. 18901 


Mr. Quentin Schlieder wrote in a 
letter to President Work printed in 
the October 15 issue of The Ram 
that recent issues of the newspaper 
were "irresponsible," "hardly pro- 
fessional," and "lack objectivity" 
and that "the paper has become a 
meaningless and disgusting publi- 
cation." Any of his opinions may be 
true or false; I am not concerned 
here with that. I am concerned by 
his assertion that, because of the 
above, "administrative guidance" 
or "constructive guidance" is neces- 
sary. I will not quibble, as Mr. 
Schlieder does, whether this is Cen- 
sorship or not. I submit, however, 
that whatever it is, it would dan- 
gerously weaken the paper. 

The functions of a student news- 
paper of its very nature are varied 
and, at times, contradictory. How- 
ever, it must be obvious that the 
most important of these functions is 
what Mr. Schlieder calls "an effec- 
tive voice of the student body." All 
the physical news that's fit to print 
on a small campus would not even 
fill as small a paper as ours; it is 
obvious that in a college society 
the most important news is what is 
going on in the minds of that so- 

How, therefore, does a college 
paper become the voice of the stu- 
dent body? It must print all the 
mental events possible. Opinions 
not presented for publication must 
be considered unimportant, no mat- 
ter how prevalent they appear to 
be. Lay out, wording, ideas, and 
viewpoints may all be criticized, as 
Mr. Schlieder has done, but they 
should never be "guided" away 
from their original intent or con- 
sidered importance. 

Mr. Schlieder seems very upset 
over the appearance of a great deal 
of editorial opinion without sub- 
stantiation. Yet all of his charges 
are exactly that ("...the paper has 
become a meaningless and disgust- 
ing publication." "The phrase ... is 
an irresponsible innuendo." "The 
cartoon ... is in poor taste." 
"... lacks objectivity . ..." "It is 
hardly an effective voice of the stu- 
dent body ..." "The Rams ir- 
responsible approach could effecti- 
vely . . . break down existing chan- 
nels of communication."). Accord- 
ing to his own criteria, therefore, 
Mr. Schlieder's analysis of the 
paper is as meaningless as he feels 
the paper to be. I deny this. Mr. 
Schlieder's opinion and the present 
students' opinions are all important 
and should be printed. It is not Mr. 
Schlieder's opinions I find fault » 
with, but the fact that he wants his 
enforced and others' repressed. Mr. 
Schlieder wants his "taste" to pre- 
vail over others by force, not argu- 




Consequently, I must repudiate 
Mr. Schlieder's charge of irresponsi- 
bility. It would be irresponsible for 
the paper to ignore or attempt to 
change the opinion of any student 
who writes something for the 
paper, especially on a campus 
where so few students bother to 
write anything. The major irrespon- 
sibility must be charged to Mr. 
Schlieder, who would hamstring 
the paper by having it contain only 
those views which fit some arbi- 
trary standards. This would ulti- 
mately lead to a paper of trivial re- 
porting and three-week-old sports 
We've seen it happen before. 
Sincerely yours,

"DVC does not make any allow- 
ances for commuters," is one of 
many complaints I heard talking to 
commuter students. 

When rostering students for 
classes the administration should 
take into consideration the travel- 
ing distance of the commuter. Sat- 
urday classes shouldn't be rostered 
for commuter and working stu- 
dents. The curriculum should be 
arranged so that all courses would 
be given during the five-day week. 

Many of the students are forced 
to commute because they can't af- 
ford the room and board, and the 
price of eating in the cafeteria. A 
good solution to the high price of 
eating in the cafeteria is vending 
machines in the student lounge. 

The idea of a student lounge 
where commuters could eat, relax, 
and study would be of great benefit 
to the school. The student lounge 
would be civilization in the midst 
of a jungle, a place where you 
could unwind from tedious labs 
and lectures that give you writer's 
cramp. It would break the mono- 
tony of class. But like other ideas 
it sounds good on paper. Some- 
where from the idea to completion 
there has been a flaw. It is time to 
straighten out the flaw and get the 
idea working. 

As you probably know, most of 
the vending machines have been re- 
moved because of vandalism. No 
janitor is available to clean the 
lounge, so disorder reigns. A solu- 
tion to the problem would be to 
close the lounge at the end of the 
school day thereby eliminating de- 
struction at night by resident stu- 

If the students cleaned up after 
eating in the lounge, much of the 
disorder could be eliminated. A 
janitor could remove the waste cans 
once a week. Commuting students 
might find DVC more bearable 
than it is now if these ideas were 
put into practice. 


It wasn't too long after I got back 
here and school had started before I'd 
heard some freshmen complaining about 
conditions here at D. V. C. Then I 
thought back to two years ago, my fresh- 
man year, and I remembered I felt the 
same way. Freshman customs at that 
time included all of the following: 

1. Cheering in the afternoons and for 
those who couldn't make the cheer- 
ing sessions, there were work hours. 

2. Having to pass through Ginkgo Lane 
when going to and from all classes 
or to the other side of the campus. 

3. Room inspections run by the upper- 

4. Answering to the screwy exclama- 
tion of Button Frosh! 

5. Having to carry change for a dollar 
around or receive a work hour. 

If you were here two years ago, you 
knew that not only freshman customs 
were discouraging if you were a fresh- 
man, but everyone felt that something 
should be done about the following 

1. Having to wear a sport coat to the 
evening meal in the dining hall 

2. Having a very tiny library 

3. Having no student center (Not that 
we have one now) 

4. Having a tiny parking area for the 

5. Having poor gym facilities for a 
growing school. 

Now, just two years later, I stop and 
look back and see that this place is 
changing. In a very short period of time 
they've improved a lot of things here. 
Some of these improvements are: 

1. WAPO— the initiation of a campus 
radio station 

2. A new dorm to house the growing 
population here 

3. A larger student parking lot 

4. A snack bar (You honestly can't call 
it a Student Center) 

5. The addition of two wings to the 

6. Minimization of freshman customs 

7. A new gym 

8. The concept of being able to park 
cars on campus which aren't covered 
by either comprehensive or theft in- 
surance policies 

9. Phones in the rooms of students who 
desire them 

10. The mass introduction of girls and 

11. More liberal open door hours 

12. Initiation of numerous clubs, inter- 
est organizations 

13. Relaxing of grooming regulations 
So, for you who think it's really bad 

here now, you should have been here 
before all of this. And for those of you 
who still think it stinks, there must be 
some legitimate reason for it. I can't put 
my finger on it, but don't you agree that 
there's still something wrong with a 
place where from last year's freshman 
class of 36(), only approximately 120 re- 
turned this year? D. V. C. has come a 
long way, but apparently not far enough.

Freshman class meetings, which 
should tend to unite its mem- 
bers into one active body, are 
turning out to do just the op- 
posite. They have been continual 
battlegrounds, consisting of has- 
sles between officers who realize 
the need for dues, and cer- 
tain members who fail to realize 
that dues are needed before any- 
thing can be done as a class. The 
officers have gotten together and 
have come up with two proposals 
which have been immediately shot 
down by the class. Unless some- 
thing is done soon, the Freshman 
class will be inactive for the rest 
of the year. If paper airplanes and 
silly side comments prevail, the 
officers will be forced to make im- 
portant decisions without the au- 
thorization of the class. Is that any 
way to run a class organization?

Talk By 

President James Work 

To Freshmen 

I welcome the members of the Class 
of 1975, and their parents, and their 

This year marks the seventy-fifth year 
of the existence of your institution, and 
the twenty-fifth year of the operation of 
the college. We have come a long way. 

We are now going through a period 
during which many ideologies and 
choices are being offered to the student, 
a period during which it becomes the 
"in ' thing, within some groups on some 
campuses, to repudiate the life style of 
their elders and set up standards of their 
own. We have seen this protest against 
the "old" ways come to a head, have 
seen the comparatively few confirmed 
radicals reach the height of their power, 
and our students have come through this 
upheaval with a fine record as level- 
headed, responsible men and women. 

I believe that this is due in great part 
to the philosophy of the college, the 
principles which guide us, and the ab- 
sence of permissiveness, which is the 
great wrecker of individuals and insti- 

There are today certainly many dif- 
ferences between the generations. 
Where these differences are simply mat- 
ters of custom, of style, of procedures, of 
political viewpoint, and of behavior 
problems, they should not be magnified 
to the extent of alienating one group 
from the other. 

The greater issues, common decency 
and respect for the law, respect for the 
lxliefs and the property of others, re- 
jection of alcohol and drugs, rejection 
of obscenity in any form, and the reten- 
tion of certain moral values, are the is- 
sues upon which we should concentrate. 
The college will retain its present stan- 
dard in these matters, which are, in 
fact, not affected by the passage of time 
nor the clamor of the dissident. 

By so doing, I am sure we will not 
place an undue burden upon anyoiu- 
coming here for an education.

Get Involved 

The Band and Glee Clubs are 
clubs which lack student participa- 
tion. Many students look down at 
these clubs without knowing the 
benefits of them. First of all, mem- 
bership in these clubs may raise 
one's accumulating average since 
membership in each is worth one 
half credit per semester. Second, 
the student becomes aware of cur- 
rent trends in modern music 
through active participation. The 
student is able to exhibit his skills 
while acquiring greater talent 
through group participation. 

The Band, like the Glee Club, 
will accept anyone providing he is 
cooperative and eager to learn. 
There are many musical instru- 
ments which can be played with- 
out requiring any musical back- 
ground. The Band promotes school 
spirit at football and basketball 
games. They try to play music 
which is pleasing to both young 
and old alike. 

The Glee Club performs before 
many different groups. Many let- 
ters are sent to them requesting 
them to perform concerts. Trie Glee 
Club sings all types of music from 
all periods and most of it is select- 
ed by the members themselves. 

Both of these clubs are involved 
in many annual affairs here at 
D.V.C. and away at other colleges. 
Even if the student has never had 
any musical training in either BarM 
or Glee Club, he is more than wel- 
' come to join. He will surely find it 
to be a beneficial and educational

On Saturday, October 23rd, our 
football team traveled to Upsala 
College for what I believe was one 
of the Aggies' finer moments. Be- 
ing a typical Monday morning 
quarterback, I question the ability 
of the officials as our two quarter- 
backs were "wiped out". 

I have followed the football team 
for several years and have kidded 
many players during this time. I 
am glad I was there Saturday to 
see an Aggie team fight for survival 
and earn the respect of everyone 
present. It was a shame that the 
student body did not take the time 
to go to the game to see what a 
great football team can do against 
seemingly hopeless odds. My con- 
gratulations to a football team that 
does not understand the meaning of 
the words "quit" and "lose".

As older people revert to their pasts 
through No, No, Nannette; Maybe, May- 
be, Mae; Sure, Sure, Shirley, and the 
rest of those vintage Camp-side memor- 
ies, we've been left without a nostalgia 
to call our own. Until now, we've had 
to live vicariously through our parents' 
pasts, as they try to bring it all back 
home again. 

But now we can go back to those long 
weekend hours in front of the TV shout- 
ing tee hee at Howdy Doody, Buffalo 
Bob, Phineas T. Bluster, Clarabel, Dilly 
Dally and the rest of our 195() family 

Because now Buffalo Bob, the Doody- 
Cang ringmaster, is making a come back. 
We have our very own nostalgia. With 
old films of Howdy Doody Shows that 
were last seen on the screen more than 
ten years ago, 53-year old Bob Smith is 
making the rounds of college campuses 
with a two-hour presentation that has 
long-hairs longing to retreat to their 
days of innocence. It all began last year 
when University of Pennsylvania stu- 
dents wrote to Uncle Bob asking to bor- 
row a Howdy Doody kinescope. Since 
then, Mr. Smith — Howdy in tow — has 
toured more than 60 colleges and has 
played full-house gigs at places like the 
recently-demised Fillmore East. 

It was an innocent nostalgia — where 
we lived in a Wonder Bread world, build- 
ing strong bodies 12 ways, drinking Oval- 
tine and searching for the cream filling 
in our Hostess Twinkie lives. 

But, like the rest of us, Howdy — the 
dummy with brains enough to mutter 
only an occasional Cosh, Golly Gee and 
Hi glit You Are — has grown up. At 24-

West Side 

"West Side Story," a musical di- 
rected by Lee R. Yapp, is current- 
ly playing at the Bucks County 
Playhpuse in New Hope, Pa. It is 
the story of the Jets and the Sharks, 
who are street gangs. The time is 
1956, and the place is the west 
side of New York City. "West Side 
Story" exposes the American cities 
and the struggle for power that is 
present in them. 

Seeing "West Side Story" is like 
making a visit to the not too dis- 
tant past, but it is still contempo- 
rary. It dramatizes the racial 
problems there were in 1956, and 
those that are still present now. 

Many of the songs in the produc- 
tion filled the air waves when we 
were younger, and sounded oddly 
familiar upon hearing them again. 
The musical production numbers 
were very polished, with plenty of 
movement and even acrobatics. 
There were times when the volume 
of certain members of the cast did 
not seem sufficient to fill the thea- 
tre, but this was the exception in- 
stead of the norm. 

Marcia King, as Maria, and Patti 
Karr, as Anita, both gave outstand- 
ing performances. They seemed to 
be totally absorbed by the excite- 
ment in this musical, and this ex- 
citement was successfully transmit- 
ted to the audience. Some of the 
lyrics and lines were too current 
to have been in the original produc- 
tion and must have been added to 
make the play more timely. 

years old, Mr. Doody still has his freck- 
les intact, his ears outturned and, witb 
all strings attached, is ready to lead us 
on to a new nostalgia. 
Gee Whiz. 

For those of you who don't know 
how "West Side Story" ends, it will 
suffice to say that it is a rush!!! If 
you are looking for something to do 
this weekend, I strongly suggest 
you call 862-2041 and make reser- 
vations. It will be a most enjoyable 
evening, and this too is the excep- 
tion instead of the norm here at 
Del Val. 

Bucks Co. Playhouse 

The contemporary classic "West Side 
Story" will play for six weeks at New 
Hope's Bucks County Playhouse. It 
opens Friday, October 22 at 8:30 P.M. 
and plays through November 27. 

"West Side Story", a dance drama by 
Leonard Bernstein, Stephan Sondheim, 
Jerome Robbins and Arthur Laurents 
derived from Shakespeare's "Romeo and 
Juliet". Taking the plot of unreasoned 
prejudice overcome by love, they fashion- 
ed a play set in New York's lower West 
Side with rival youth gangs replacing 
the feuding families, the Montagues and 
Capulets, in "Romeo and Juliet". 1957 
audiences reacted violently to this total- 
ly new musical. Not the traditional hap- 
py ending play that then characterized 
Broadway, Walter Kerr said of it: "The 
radioactive fallout film "West Side 
Story" must still be descending on Broad- 
way this morning." 

Today's audiences are no longer 
shocked by "West Side Story", but that 
it is relevant in an age of stormy racial 
disputes, in an age of young people 
striving to let love overcome hate, is in- 

Paul Barry, artistic director/producer 
of the New Jersey Shakespeare Festival 
will direct the Bucks County Theatre 
Company's production. Mania King and 
.Norman Begin will pla the leading 
roles. Supporting leads ar«. Dennis Eden- 
field, Terry Eno and Connie Denise. 
Others in the cast include Robert Cou- 
cill, Dennis M. Kitzpatrick, William 
Simington, Sam Barton, and Wesley 

"West Side Story" plays daily at 10:30

noticeable." What she really likes about 
cheerleading is being in a position to 
demonstrate to the team members that 
some people at Del Val are really back- 
ing them, and that there is a lot of fun 
in being part of the squad. 

A third freshman member of the squad 
is Maureen Dwyer. Maureen is a gradu- 
ate of Archbishop Wood High School 
for Girls and she is majoring in Biology 
here. Her other activities include mem- 
bership in the Neuman Club and touch 
football games between classes. Maureen 
likes cheerleading because it gives her 
the opportunity to back the teams and 
to show the rest of the student body 
that their team needs support. 

Cathy Thomas from Fairfield, New 
Jersey, is another freshman member. A 
graduate of West Essex High School, 
Cathy is an Agronomy major and parti- 
cipates in a number of extracurricular 
activities, namely, Agronomy Club, 
Equine Club and WAPO radio. Her rea- 
sons for liking cheerleading are similar 
to everyone elses, demonstration of 
school spirit and meeting new people. 
Cathy also feels that she appreciates 
the hard work which goes on behind the 
scenes to produce a good cheering squad. 

The final member of the squad at 
this time is Ana Simon from Lower Bur- 
rell, Pennsylvania. She is the longest 
distance from home since her family live 
about 30 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. 
During the school year Ana boards in 
town. A freshman Biology major. Ana is 
a graduate of Burrell High School. Her, 
extracurricular activities at Del Val in- 
clude the Gleaner and the Equine Club. 
Ana feels that cheerleading gives her the 
opportunity to express her enthusiasm 
and school spirit. 

All of these girls have been working 
diligently five days a week practicing. 
Due to their great improvement, the 
practices have now been reduced to 
three days per week. Each girl has put 
a tremendous amount of effort into self- 
improvement, as well as, group improve- 
ment. Some of them have learned to yell 
louder, march with a right and left 
foot (instead of two left feet), get higher 
off the ground doing cheerleading jumps, 
smile and demonstrate more enthusiasm. 
Everyone has worked hard, but at the 
same time they have enjoyed learning, 
improving and demonstrating their skills. 
Most of these girls have had very little 
if any experience as cheerleaders before 
DVC. They also have fun practicing and 
cheering as everyone who has observed 
them can tell you. 

The major problem they have en- 
countered, which has proven to l>e the 
greatest challenge, is stimulation of de- 
monstrative school spirit. They have all 
expressed disappointment and frustra- 
tion concerning this. It all comes down 
to the fact that they frequently feel as 
though they are cheering solely as an 
exhibition and not as leaders for the 
students and fans to support the team. 
As one of them said, 'Cheering to a 
dead crowd can be extremely depress- 
ing." But there are some people begin- 
ning to cheer so there is hope. Maybe 
this will improve to the point that the 
teams will recognize that the student 
body is backing them. 


GREEN BAY, WIS. - The cab made 
its way through the dirty dankly pollut- 
ed college town. Tall chimneys emitted 
a bad black smog in a city where that 
kind of black isn't beautiful.

of a puddle of dirty water near a slightly 
larger puddle of dirty water called Lake 
Michigan near a construction site near 
an environmental science building. I had 

"I don't know," said the Green Bay 
cab driver. "It's just like any other uni- 
versity, I suppose." 

At first glance it looks just-like-any- 
oJther-university-I-Mippose — with 3,500 
students shoving their way to class, 
books under arms, girls under arms, long 
hair, short hair, linoleumed floors, white 
cement walls, bulletin boards announc- 
ing the usual bull. 

At second glance it looks just like any 
other university. 

And at third and fourth and fifth . . . 

In fact, it's only until you find out 
what's going on there (and, more impor- 
tant, what isn't) that you discover it's 
not just like any other university. 

It s the University of Wisconsin at 
Green Bay, its acronym being UWGB, 
tin- sound one emits upon getting a 
moqthful of smog, which is exactly one 
of the things this college is dedicated to 

Dubbed "Survival U," "Ecology IT 
and the "University of Involvement," 
UWGB is all of the above. The entire 
school has been organized around the 
theme of environmental crisis. A lot of 
theme. A lot of crisis. 

It's the first of its kind. Structured 
with a unique semi-structure, it's the 
free school au courant, complete with 
bio degradable students who study the 
solution to pollution, the psychology of 
ecology as they bicycle and recycle their 
ways through four years of issue-oriented 

UWGB, all acronyms aside, is a breath 
of fresh air in an otherwise polluted 
academic environment. It opened its 
doors to students in 1969. And word has 
spread. Now, more than two years later, 
ecologically minded students from all 
over the country flock to this environ- 
mental mecca. 

But the college itself is polluted with 
many undistinguished problems— an 80% 
commuter campus, a minor housing 
crisis, student apathy (and apathy about 
the apathy). But certainly never a com- 
plaint about Irrelevant Education. 
UWGB is anything but irrelevant — the 
answer to any activist's academic re- 
form visions. If anything, it just might 
l>e too relevant. 

A student selects an environmental 
problem that "forms the center of his 
intellectual interests," according to the 
school catalog. The structure is based 
on environmental themes rather than 
standard disciplines. There are four col- 
leges within the University: Environ- 
mental Sciences, Community Sciences, 
Human Biology and Creative Communi- 

Curriculum includes such subjective 
subjects as "Visions of Man," "Ecosys- 
tems Analysis," "The Philosophy of 
Leisure," independent study programs 
that include community communication 
and involvement — as well as the old 
Standby standards like accounting and 
phys. ed. But this university ties them 
all together. 

"Frankly," says chancellor Frank 
Weidner, "we've tried to build an insti- 
tution that says the cop-out from society 
isn't welcome here. There must be a 
feeling of social responsibility — rele- 
vance — in ewry area. Let's not pollute 
this university with things that lack 

It is this man who sets the pace. Com- 
plete with a simple, folksy charm, Weid- 
ner wows students into involvement like 
cows into an educationally verdant pas- 
ture. But sometimes, as they say, the 
pasture is greener on the other side. For 
most people UWGB is that greener side.

But for many UWGB students, their 
pastures are more gangrene. 

"Do I sound bitter?" asked one bitter 
coed after she had listed several reasons 
why she hated the school — from big 
classes to big masses to her disdain for 
student apartments. "If there weren't any 
classes, I d like it better." But there are 
classes. And there are students who like 
it better. 

One students who does like the school 
diagnosed students' problems as such: 
"They come here expecting utopia. You 
know, this school is supposed to be a 
big innovative thing — new, different, 
all that. Then they come here and they're 
disappointed that it's not Waldcn III. 
But they forget that they have as much 
a role in making it innovative as the 
staff does." 

Or, as Karen Weidner — yes, the 
chancellor's student daughter — says, 
"People think it's all going to be there 
when they come. But it's not just going 
to come up to your doorstep and buzz." 
Her father agrees. 

"Thines take a while to implement 
fully," Weidner said. "There is no such 
thing as a perfect human institution. 
And I hope we never have one because 
that means we've stopped growing and 

UWGB is growing and changing. But 
it isn't a perfect human institution. It's 
got its problems. But it also has poten- 
tial, which few other institutions have. 
It's got potential for change but, more 
important, its students have the poten- 
tial for changing the world. 

At the end of the day, I hopped into 
a yellowed Yellow Cab and was on my 
way home. I thought I'd try again. 

"I don't know much alwut it," this 
driver said. "But a college is a college. 
Isn't it?" 

I turned around to notice a dark trail 
of combustion coming from »ne rear of 
his cab.

College yearbooks yeurh nearly die of 
dreariness when thev're issued every 
June. It's refreshing to see one that's 
not the run of the paper mill — one 
without pictures of sorority sisters and 
their brothers crammed onto a divan, 
quarter-, half- and full-backs in their 
varsity drag, and beauty queeas with 
shining teeth and pimpleless complex- 

But last June, along came "Gumbo," 
a product of Louisiana State University 
and one of the first X-rated yearbooks. 
"Gumbo" got itself into producing an 
honest representation of campus life. 
Maybe she was too honest. 

Included in the "book was a photo- 
graph of a red, white and blue marijuana 
cigarette; a series of satires on such 
sanctions as motherhood, and four 
photos of nudes taken in art classes, 
which changed the book's rating from 
R to X. 

"Gumbo" was a partial success. Stu- 
dents loved the book and, for the first 
time in the college's history, "Gumbo" 
went into a second printing. 

The State Legislature, however, 
wasn't so pleased. A resolution of dis- 
approval was passed. Said one legisla- 
tor, who once attacked the teaching of 
Shakespeare in the school system, "I've 
never seen more nasty pictures. A stu- 
dent cannot show it to his little brothers 
and sisters." 

And the LSU student-body president 
retorted, "Anyone who thinks that book 
has pornographic value hasn't seen very 
much good pornography." 

"Gumbo" follows an inevitable stu- 
dent press pattern. Four years ago, cam- 
pus papers ran what were labeled "ob- 
scene" words, back when the watch- 
word, "telling it like it is," was telling 
it as it was. 

Now it seems that yearbooks have got- 
ten in the picture by getting in the pic- 
tures of nude bodies, student smoking 
habits and other aspects of life on cam- 
pus. Maylx' one provocative picture is 
worth a thousand four-letter words.

Student Store Report 
Retail Management 
Mr. Handler 

18 October 1971 
John Delpino 
John C. Lancaster 


In dealing with the precarious situa- 
tion of our school store, we plan to ap- 
proach it as follows: Part I will deal 
with the description of the Delaware 
Valley College Student Store as it exists 
today, with noted discrepancies in its 
operational and managerial aspects; Part 
II will follow with prescription, including 
suggestions, recommendations, and a 
proposed plan which we feel will be 
beneficial to the students of Delaware 
Valley College. 


Our school store, for those who are 
unfamiliar with it, is located in an ob- 
scure corner in the basement of Ulman 
Hall. The reason why most students are 
unaware of its actual presence, is in 
fact, its secluded locale. If anyone were 
to walk past Ulman Hall, no one would 
even know that the store exists in the 
building. Even if a student were to ven- 
ture down to the basement of Ulman 
Hall, he would walk right past the store 
thinking that it was a storage room. In 
fact this is what we did the first time 
we went to the store to get our first look. 

It's one thing to find the store, but 
it's another thing to find it open. The 
present store hours are from 11:00 A.M.- 
1:00 P.M., and also from 5:00 P.M.- 
7:00 P.M., at which time most students 
have gone home, and at closing time the 
evening students are just arriving. When 
we finally had a free period which coin- 
cided with the opening of the store, the 
man who we wanted to see, the manager, 
was not there, so consequently we had 
to come back another day. Upon con- 
vening with the manager of this fiasco, 
at a recent lunch time, the store had only 
one customer in a span of 15 minutes, 
and his only need was change for a dol- 
lar bill which he was denied unless a 
purchase was made. If business was like 
that everyday, there would be a grand 
total of 16 customers a day wanting 
change for 16 one dollar bills. This 
seems to be rather ironic due to the fact 
that the lunch hours should be the 
busiest time. Even if the store were open 
just one additional hpur, the probability 
of not having a class would increase and 
it just might increase the amount of 

We feel that this lack of consumers is 
due to the poor organization which is 
allowed to occur. Students fail to realize 
that a student store even exists, due to 
the poor image that has been projected 
over the years. Since the store is hurting 
for customers you do not turn one away 

t'ust because he asks for change. Who 
mows he just might on his way out pur- 
chase something that catches his eye. It 
is quite obvious that the student will not 

f[o back to the store, and we are sure his 
riends will have heard of the incident 

People today are greatly influenced by 
advertisements and instincts. Therefore, 
in order to interest people, convey a 
feeling of confidence in the customer, 
which in many cases sets the person in 
a buying mood; the outward appearance 
of a retail outlet is of the utmost impor- 
tance. Since this is the first thing that 
people see, a sign of some sort, possibly 
a shingle hanging from the doorway giv- 
ing direction to the store, would get the 
immediate attention of anyone going in- 
to the building. 

The interior of the store, in our esti- 
mation, is perhaps the best example of 
poor retail mix in the area. The items 
are just scattered about the store. One 




|0 II 


































thing that we noticed was that writing 
paper was on one side and envelopes 
were on the other side. It is true that the 
store is much too small, but the available 
space is used to its greatest disadvantage. 
There is more room behind the counter 
than there is for the customers. Another 
disadvantage is that people like to get a 
close look and feel the merchandise be- 
fore buying. This is impossible in our 
store unless one of the clerks gets the 
item for you. Customers want to be in- 
dependent. This idea of having the clerks 
get everything for you, we are con- 
vinced, has lost a lot of sales. 

The following chart readily depicts 
the price disadvantage which the store 
faces. Almost every item can be found 
cheaper in a food store or 5 & 10 store. 
Since the book store is separate from the 
student store, the students would rather 
leave the book store and go in town to 
buy their school supplies instead of bang- 
ing their head on the ceiling going down 
the steps into Ulman Hall. This is basi- 
cally true for the commuter who really 
has no reason to go to the student store 
when he can go in town to get his sup- 
plies. Also their lack of convenient hours 
forces the student into town for his 
school supplies. It would be nice to car- 
ry around a notebook with DVC's em- 
blem on the cover instead of W. T.< 


We took our problem to the Ogontz 
campus of Penn State hoping to find a 
possible solution. After talking with the 
store manager, Mr. Martin Nolan, we 
found just the answers we were looking 
for. After a three hour interview, we 
came up with some very good ideas, and 
if the school administration is willing to 
help, DVC could very well have an ef- 
ficient school store by next fall. 

The first thing that was suggested was 
that interest must be started amongst the 
students and faculty to come up with a 
package deal to sell to the administra- 
tion. Mr. Nolan even offered to help if 
the administration would be willing to 
get the project off the ground. It would 
cost money, but the only way to make 
money is to spend it first. One way in 
which to raise money is by having the 
students themselves contribute, some- 
thing like issuing shares of stock and at 
the end of their studies, have the capital 
investment returned to them. This is just 
one way; we are convinced there are 

The basic package is to have the stu- 
dent store, book store, and student center 
combined into one building. This way 
the students could buy their books and 
supplies in the student store and after- 
ward meet their buddies in the vending 
machine area to have a Pepsi. The rea- 
son for having everything together is to 
give the students a convenient place to 
go to spend their spare time between 
classes, get something to eat, and stop in 
the student store for their books and 
supplies. It's sort of a one stop shopping 
place. Unlike our setup, Penn State's 
center was crowded with students when 
we arrived to interview Mr. Nolan. The 
layout of this student center is on the 
following page, and we feel this would 
be a good start for our school. 

Mr. Nolan suggested some basic facts 
and figures which we feel our school 
should follow. First off our store should 
be run by an outsider who is experienced 
in the retail field. Someone who knows 
what he is doing will do a much better 

As far as the actual layout of the store, 
we feel that the layout that follows, 
which is a copy of Penn State's, will suit 
our store just perfectly. As the students 
come into the store there is a book rack 
(#48) where they can put their books 
before shopping. Along the walls are all 
required books. Also next to each text

are copies of used texts to give the stu- 
dent a choice. This also eliminates a used 
book store. All along the perimeter; the 
shelves, which there are six almost from 
floor to ceiling; are all identical which 
adds continuity. These shelves are very 
flexible in that they can be raised up or 
down to serve the needs of various pro- 
ducts. Also in the center aisles there are 
similar shelves, but they are not as high 
as the ones along the perimeter. This 
way when the manager is in his office, 
he can see everyone in the store because 
of these low shelves and also the two 
mirrors in the corners. This cuts down 
on shoplifting. Underneath the shelves 
along the perimeter and the center aisles 
are drawers where surplus products are 
kept. This saves time repacking products 
which sometimes come 48 in a case from 
being repacked and stored in the back 
room because the extra 4 or 5 could not 
fit up on the shelf. We know that it is 
very annoying to go into a retail store, 
such as a supermarket, and find three 
cans of peas mixed in with the canned 
corn because the stocker was too lazy 
to repack the three cans. 

As noted on the previous page is a 
list of all the merchandise carried in the 
store. Maybe not all these products 
would be needed but we feel it is a very 
good start. As noted on the chart each 
section is numbered and each shelf is 
labeled. The numbers are used for in- 
ventory purposes. It is much easier to 
inventory by section than it is by pro- 
ducts. Also the old saying goes, "A place 
for everything and everything in its 
place." Thus the reason for the tags on 
the shelves. 

On top of the counter are the items 
that are bought on impulse such as pens, 
pencils, decals, newspapers, etc. All of 
these items are placed near the cash re- 
gister which will also cut down on pos- 
sible shoplifting. Another good thing is 
that when we went into the store, tin- 
mood was very relaxing by the soft music 
that was playing. The manager had 
sneakers in each corner of the store so 
the music was heard throughout the 
store. Also when we Went into the store, 
one of the three women working there 
asked if she could assist us. This proce- 
dure is done for two reasons. One is to 
help the student get the correct textbook 
for a desired course. Since Penn State 
is only a two year school, half of the 
students are new and so the women help 
the students get oriented with the store. 
This procedure cuts down on students 
getting the wrong textbook which cuts 
down on the extra paper work involved 
with exchanging books. The second rea- 
son is to discotvrage shoplifting, which 
Mr. Nolan said has not been a problem 
mainly because of this procedure. The 
student will think twice about shoplift- 
ing if someone knows he is in the store. 

Another good idea is the set-up of a 
temporary checkout station (#47 A) dur- 
ing the rush periods at the beginning of 
each semester. This gets the students in 
and out in a hurry and thus increases 
sales instead of discouraging sales be- 
cause of long waiting lines. We both 
agree that the store should be open from 
8:30 - 4:30, which are the hours Penn 
State has adopted. Also during the first 
few weeks of the semester, the store 
should be open at night so the evening 
students can purchase their books and 

In conclusion of our proposed store, 
Mr. Nolan gave us some important figur- 
es about the store which an experienced 
manager should know. First of all the 
store should not have more than 75% of 
its sales in books because of the 20% 
mark-up on the books in order to make 
a profit the store should count on 25% 
of their sales on the other products which 
have a much higher mark-up. At present, 
Penn State is operating at 69% of sales 
on books and 31% on other items, and 
they are making a good profit.

is to have special forms for the profes- 
sors and instructors to fill out. On the 
form the professor writes down the name 
of the text that he is going to use, the 
type of text (hard bound or paperback), 
the number of texts desired and he must 
sign his name. This protects the store 
manager. If the professor decides to 
change texts or orders too much, the 
manager has some recourse. If the pro- 
fessor fails to follow his order the man- 
ager can go to the administration for 
action to be taken. 

Profits from the operation of this en- 
tire project should be plowed back into 
it to improve it for the students. We 
feel, that we as students should reap 
some benefits since we are the ones who 
patronize the project. The average stu- 
dent spends $130 a semester for books 
and supplies so he is entitled to some- 
thing. According to Mr. Nolan the ideal 
selling space that we should adopt for 
our store is 2500 square feet. This gives 
plenty of room for merchandise to be 
displayed, and for the students to enjoy 
shopping in the store. 

We both feel that if enough interest 
is generated; the Administration is will- 
ing to help; Delaware Valley College 
could have a student store next fall.

The Aggies coming off a 1-7 sea- 
son, did not only surprise predic- 
tions all year, but emphatically left 
MAC teams fearful of what to ex- 
pect next year. True the Aggies 
will lose lettermen this year. Those 
lettermen include co-captains, Fred 
Beach and Dan Guers; also among 
those remembered for outstanding 
careers here at Delaware Valley are 
Jasper Meadows, Larry Eisenhart, 
Frank Arcade, Bill Brightcliffe and 
Pete Bracchi. 

Cross Country at Delaware Val- 
ley has been given a new look. 
Coach Berthold's harriers came up 
with real results this year. The 
team will lose captain Roy Funk- 
houser and John McDonough 
through graduation. Their record at 
8 wins, 4 setbacks gives us a pre- 
view of what to expect along that 
line of sports next year. 

Everything sportswise has pick- 
ed up this year. Both football and 
cross country teams, have done out- 
standing jobs. Basketball and 
wrestling now take die front posi- 
tion among winter sports here at 
the Valley. They'll need your sup-

Delaware Valley was handed a 
20-16 loss by the Warriors of Ly- 
coming. Their 1971 season came to 
a close, but not before plenty of 
action took place. 

In the first period Roy Petters' 
interception set things up for a 28- 
yard field goal by Pete Bracchi to 
give the Aggies a 3-0 advantage. 
After kicking the successful field 
goal, the Aggies kicked off only to 
recover a Warrior fumble at the 10 
yard line. Bruce Noll then tossed a 
1 yard touchdown pass to Rich 
Koenig; PAT good by Bracchi, 10-0 

Second quarter action featured 
Aggie defense, and the foot of 
Warrior, Porfirio Goncalves. Ly- 
coming was stalemated by the Ag- 
gies, and had to resort to 32 and 
20 yard field goals by the soccer- 
style Goncalves to make the half 
time score 10-6 Aggies. 

The second half featured a scor- 
ing strike by Lycoming's Cosslett 
to Rosenhoover good for 30 yards 
and a Warrior touchdown, giving 
the Warrior's a 13-10 lead. Pete 
Bracchi continued his field goal 
antics knotting the score, 13-13, 
with a 29 yard attempt. 

Petters' interception set Bracchi 
up again, this one from 19 yards 
out giving the Aggies their last lead 
of the day 16-13. 

Lycoming then shocked Aggie 
followers when Warrior, Vincent 
Joy returned a punt 60 yards giving 
Lycoming all it needed to beat the

Plagued by injuries the Aggies 
stumbled through their last three 
encounters. After absorbiug a heart- 
breaking setback to Upsala, the 
Aggies bounced back to beat Sus- 
quehanna. To recap, first quarter 
action saw Irv Miller cap an 80 
yard - 13 play drive by diving in 
from the one to give the Crusaders 
a 7-0 half time cushion. 

In the second half, Bruce Noll 
connected with Warren Urban for 
a neat 25 yard touchdown pass. Af- 
ter the Aggies knotted the score, 
Noll again found receivers, but the 
Aggies spark left them deep in Cru- 
sader territory. Midway through 
the fourth quarter, Andy Timko re- 
turned a punt to the Crusader 40. 
Finally the Aggies hit paydirt. Af- 
ter Noll found Richie Glenn open 
at the 5, Glenn got the call again, 
and took it in for a 14-7 lead, that 
the Aggies never relinquished. Sus- 
quehanna threatened late in the 
game, and appeared to have picked 
up momentum, however, a key in- 
terception by Roy Johnson gave the 
Parent's Day crowd a 14-7 Aggie

/ Wonder 

My freshman year at Delaware 
Valley College began with great 
enthusiasm, meeting new friends 
and establishing a new way of life. 
The friendliness of the students, 
upper and lower classmen, im- 
pressed me. 

Now I wonder what has hap- 
pened to some of them. A restless- 
ness has grown among a few; by 
this I mean the outbreak of van- 

First it was the student center, 
the breaking of machines and 
markings on walls. Now four lamps 
and a portrait are missing from 
Work Hall lounge. 

Today walking down to Lake 
Archer, I noticed that the stone 
bench was thrown in. These ac- 
tions are not the work of children, 
or are they, I wonder. 

The point, a few are wrecking 
the campus for everyone else. 

A pleasant closing note: This is 
done by only a few, the majority 
being kind and friendly.

A Sorority 
At D.V.C.? 

A meeting was held November 
4 to determine whether or not 
DVC's coeds would like to start a 
chapter of Gamma Sigma Sigma 
on campus. Although only a few 
girls attended this meeting, efforts 
are being made to establish a chap- 
ter. During the weekend of Novem- 
ber 13, Debbie Yomer and Nancy 
Coale attended a regional conven- 
tion of the sorority at the Univer- 
sity of Delaware in order to gain 
more information about the organ- 
ization for DVC girls. 

Founded in 1952, Gamma Sigma 
Sigma performs non-profit charit- 
able services for schools and com- 
munities. Such services include aid- 
ing exchange students, performing 
hospital work, and working wrtn 
retarded children. Although the 
sorority is a worthy organization, 
the rather high membership fees 
seem to be a discouraging factor in 
establishing DVC's first sorority. 
Time will tell if there will be 
enough support to start a chapter. 

While I am on the subject of or- 
ganizations, I would like to con- 
gratulate the Business Club for 
their party held, on December 11. 
I hope everyone there enjoyed him- 
self as much as Bill, our guests, 
and I.

American Pie 

Don McLean is a hard man to pin 
down. There are so many sides to this 
young poet singer, whose latest release 
on United Artists is currently soaring up 
the record charts. 

A songpoet with two albums to his 
credit, he is highly inventive, totally 
unique and has been mentioned in the 
same breath with James Taylor, Neil 
foung and Elton John. And yet he is 
like none of them. 

When he sings it is about waste and 
pollution, Pete Seeger and the Beatles, 
Buddy Holly and the Boiling Stones. 
His songs apparently express a lot of 
the feeling of his generation, for his 
latest record, "American Pie," is selling 
phenomenally well in every corner of 
the country. 

"American Pie" is as varied a record 
as Don is a person. It begins with a nine- 
minute song that bears the title of the 
album and is a look at the last ten years 
in music, culture and politics. Although 
it features a simple, unforgettable 
chorus, the verses are filled with images 
open to interpretation, and some radio 
stations are even running contests to see 
who can interpret the song best. 

Don will tell you that he doesn't be- 
lieve in writing single songs, that his 
music runs in patterns, with many songs 
linked to make a broad and fresh state- 
ment about the way the world is today. 

One thing that appears again and 
again in Don's work is his deep concern 
with ecology. McLean was active in the 
struggle for cleaner water and air long 

before it became a national fashion, hav- 
ing traveled up and down the Hudson 
River singing about the message of 
ecology. One of the original members of 
the anti-pollution sloop, The Clearwater, 
Don has also served a term as Hudson 
River Troubador, performing over 25 
concerts in six short weeks, sometimes 
singing forty songs a day. 

"We travelled and sang because whole 
communities along the Hudson were on 
the brink of total destruction due to in- 
dustrial pollution, and the people never 

Don has recently completed a public 
service TV announcement for the Sierra 
Club which is being released nationally. 

Great-grandson of one of the first 
presidents of the DAR, McLean believes 
in taking a strong stand on the issues he 
sees as important. 

"I was brought up to stand behind 
what I believe in. I guess I get to feel- 
ing responsible, and having to do some- 
thing. Touch upon things, change them, 
work them out." 

But Don is a complicated character, 
and his music shows it. You're just as 
likely to find a song about love gone 
wrong on one of his records as you are 
to find a tune about saving our rivers. 

Some see Don McLean as a folk sing- 
er, others as a pop singer, but he is 
both of those and a songpoet as well. 
His lyrics are warm and human and he's 
singing about problems and experiences 
that touch us all. 

New Self-Defense Programs for the Girls? 




Members of the Board, Dr. 
Work, Administrators, faculty and 

As president of the Student Gov- 
ernment I feel that I must present 
to you some of the problems with 
which our current government is 
faced. There are increasing num- 
bers of students who are becoming 
frustrated and apathetic on our 
campus. The majority of these stu- 
dents will remain as members in 
good standing in our student body, 
a handful will leave the college, 
and there will be few if any who 
will protest our conditions. The 
student body may appear content 
but they are not. Fortunately the 
Delaware Valley College student is 
above riot and protest; however, 
this does not mean they approve of 
their situation. 

During the fall semester the gov- 
ernment stressed communication 
with both the student and the ad- 
ministrator. We handed very few 
recommendations to our adminis- 
tration. Because of our communica- 
tion efforts, we have found that our 
students have certain needs which 
are not being fulfilled, anil the gov- 
ernment is in the process of mak- 
ing recommendations to reflect 
those needs. 

Presently the student govern- 
ment is reviewing the handbook, 
and many recommendations will be 
forthcoming. The officers of the 
government have addressed them- 
selves to those problems which are 
brought up each year. We have 
done this to try and make use of 
our experience in these areas and 
not to bog the government down 
with seemingly impossible situa- 
tions. The officers will have recom- 
mendations forthcoming also. The 
student government would be off 
track to expect all of our recom- 
mendations to be passed; however, 
there are key issues in the eyes of 
the student which must be given 
every consideration. These issues 
include the open door policy, class 
attendance, cars for freshmen, our 
summer work program, increased 
responsibility to our student court, 
and augmented communication 
with the board of trustees. 

All of the above have been 
brought to your attention previous- 
ly. We realize that some are issues 
which deal with social problems as 
well as with college regulations. 
These are the issues in which the 
students hold the greatest interest, 
and the policies now governing 
those interests can be said to be 
one of the reasons for their discon- 
tent and frustration. For us to de- 
mand a reversal of those policies 
would be unreasonable; however, 
based upon investigation, student 
communication, college policy, ad- 
ministration communication, and in 
the interest of the college commu- 
nity the student government will

The Northeastern Regional Collegiate 
Soil Judging Contest was held on Satur- 
day, October 23, 1971. Hosts were the 
Rutgers University Department of Soils 
and Crops, and the Rutgers Student Con- 
servation Club. The contest is sanctioned 
by the American Society of Agronomy. 
First — University of Maryland 
Second — Cornell University 
Third— Delaware Valley College 
Fourth — Pennsylvania 
Fifth — University of Maine 
Sixth — Rutgers University 
The top two teams from each regional 
contest are entitled to compete in the 
National Soil Judging Contest held in 
the Spring. Fred Van Doren, Delaware 
Valley College senior, placed fifth high- 
est individually among the 60-70 contest- 
ants. Recognition was given to the top 
three colleges and the top ten individuals 
at an awards banquet on the evening of 
the day of the contest. 

Delaware Valley College was well rep- 
resented at the contest, sending three 
teams of four and two alternates. The 
contest was held in the following man- 

1. Four soil pits were judged by each 

2. The scores of the top three individ- 
uals of each team were totalled for 
a team score. 

3. Colleges were ranked according to 
the performance of their highest 
scoring team. 

4. Individuals were ranked according 
to their total score. 

The following students from Delaware 
Valley College participated in the con- 

TEAM 1— 

Wayne Kneir— Class of 1972 

Allentown, Pa. 
William Neilson— Class of 1972 

Shavertown, Pa. 
Fred Van Doren— Class of 1972 

Flemington, N. J. 
Thomas Lehman—Class of 1973 

Holtwood, Pa. 

TEAM 2— (Class of 1973) 

George Clippinger, Three Springs, Pa. 
David Hafner, Bethlehem, Pa. 
Ray Leet, Starrucca, Pa. 
Dan Seibert, Muncy, Pa. 

TEAM 3— (Class of 1974) 
Paul Beers, Ridgefield, Conn. 
Harry Cressman, Lansdale, Pa. 
Larry Hepner, Wyomissing, Pa. 
Donald McAghon, Milford, N. J. 

ALTERNATES— (Class of 1974) 
Necodemus Adiku, Ho, Ghana 
Robert Twaron, Schwenksville, Pa. 

Mr. Zimmerman and Dr. Gold should 
receive special recognition for their fine 
effort as first-year coaches. They spent 
much of their free time working in the 
field and in the classroom with their 
teams. These are two very dedicated men 
that we should be proud to have at 
D.V.C. The large number of sophomores 
and juniors who participated this year 
should form a strong nucleus for future 

Delaware Valley College will host the 
Northeastern Regional Collegiate Soil 
Judging Contest in the fall of 1972. This 
will afford an excellent opportunity to 
acquaint students and faculty visitors 
from universities and colleges through- 
out the Northeastern Region with our 
College. A well-organized, thoughtfully 
planned event with comfortable accom- 
modations and good meals will go far 
toward leaving a favorable impression 
with our guests and help to perpetuate 
a truly excellent educational experience.

Soi//e... Souie... 

Have you taken a good look 
around the cafeteria? Does the eat- 
ing area in the cafeteria remind you 
of the aftermath of a prison riot? 
The reason for this is obvious. Stu- 
dents tend to leave all table man- 
ners at home. The cafeteria is no 
different from a restaurant or even 
one's home as far as manners go. 
The school cafeteria is no different 
and should receive the same con- 
sideration. It seems that here at 
D.V.C. many of the students think 
of the cafeteria as a battle ground 
rather than as a dining room. Lack 
of respect and pure ignorance are 
portrayed by many of the stu- 
dents. We can see no basis for the 
unjustified actions which take 
place in the dining room. In case 
some of you aren't aware of what 
we're speaking of, let me clue you 
in. Many of the students here are 
very disrespectful and appear to be 
lacking in table manners. Instead 
of just sitting back to enjoy a good 
meal many feel that meal time is 

The action starts when one en- 
ters the lobby. He is shoved, kick- 
ed, and finally booted into line. He 
is then herded in, New York sub- 
way style, through the dinner line. 
On his way through the line he en- 
counters many sweating and hard- 
working cooks trying to do their 
jobs. At times they are irritated by 
many of the students but are ma- 
ture enough to ignore the majority 
of the remarks passed. Once the 
student gets at the end of the line 
he enters into the main dining room 
where he is then bombarded by 
rolls, cookies, and assorted para- 
phernalia. He then begins to look 
for a table but only finds tables 
cluttered with dirty trays, plates, 
glasses, food, juice, etc. It wouldn't 
be too bad if the students just left 
their trays neatly on the table. We, 
as well as you, know this isn't so. 
One can find entire dinners scat- 
tered and heaped on one table. If 
one looks hard enough he can find 
broken dishes and glassware. We 
can see no justification for behavior 
of this type. It's sad that those stu- 
dents who eat a late dinner are 
forced to sit at a table in this con- 

What makes it worse is that the 
same people who serve the food 
have to go clean it up off the tables, 
the walls, and the floor. The din- 
ing hall staff tries to do their best 
to maintain a clean dining hall al- 
though many students prefer to eat 
in unsanitary conditions. There is 
no excuse for behavior of this type 
especially when it is forbidden ac- 
cording to the student handbook. 
On page twenty-seven it states the 
following: "Students are expected 
to maintain order in the Dining 
Room. Any student who does not 
meet the standards set by the Col- 
lege and the Student Government, 
or who interferes in any way with 
the efficient operation of the Din- 
ing Room, shall lose the privilege 
of living on campus." Hopefully 
order will be maintained by Stu- 
dent Government officers and re- 
presentatives before the problems 
get too serious. As it stands now 
many students leave the cafeteria 
with bruises and upset stomachs as 
a result of the actions of the many 
ill-mannered students in the din- 
ing hall. The newspaper will ac- 
cept any opinions or suggestions 
for the enforcement of set rule in 
the student handbook. 




(Continued from first page) 
make recommendations concerning 
those issues. We do not propose to 
eliminate college authority or to 
resort to protests or apathy. We 
propose to satisfy student needs 
and maintain free communication; 
we propose change but not an- 
archism. There must be control in 
all college regulation, but control 
can be strict or non-existent; both 
are unhealthy. The student govern- 
ment will attempt to draft recom- 
mendations which will contain the 
element of control and fairness to 
our entire community. 

It has been said that the relation- 
ship between the student govern- 
ment and the college administra- 
tion must be a two directional re- 
lationship. I agree with that state- 
ment and pledge to keep it that 
way. I ask you to consider our pro- 
posals with all of our students in 
mind, not with the fear that some- 
thing may go wrong. Remember 
the maturity and past conduct of 
the Delaware Valley College stu- 
dent. At such times when one of 
our recommendations is not accept- 
able, please explain that which is 
objectionable and that which is 
sound. I ask you please to provide 
the student government v ith a base 
to start again, rather than to force 
us back into the dark struggling 
with the same problems and hand- 
ing to you the same recommenda- 
tion only reworded. If this much 
can be accomplished, we will have 

A student government must 
make progress in the areas of stu- 
dent needs. If the government can 
not progress, we must consider our 
efforts ineffective and we must 
dissolve ourselves. I pray that we 
never reach that point.

Teachers and 


Have you ever had the exper- 
ience of taking a course and re- 
greeting it for the rest of the term? 
Well, a Teacher and Course 
Evaluation Program would hope- 
fully preVent this from happening 
to you again. 

The two main reasons why a stu- 
dent drops a course is because of 
the teacher's attitude toward teach- 
ing the class and because of the 
material that is required to be 
known for the course. 

If there were a Teacher and 
Course Evaluation Program here at 
D.V.C., a student would get a 
chart with all the teachers and the 
courses they teach listed on it and 
stating the percent rating made by 
the students the term before. The 
rating would be something like Ex- 
cellent, Good, Fair, and Poor. A 
survey at the end of each term 
would be taken of every class, ask- 
ing the students several questions 
about the teacher and the course. 
The results would be given to each 
student on the day he registers for 
the next term. 

This would allow the student to 
see what the class before him 
thought of the teacher and the 
course. The student would be pro- 
tected from dropping credits that 
he needs or even from failing the 
course. No student wants to drop 
a course and lose the money for 
those credits. 

This would not only protect the 
student but also the teacher. As of 
now. a student has to rely on what 
his friends or other students have 
to say about a prof and/or his 
course. It is not right that a teach- 
er's reputation rely on the "Student 

I believe that each teacher should 
be evaluated by the Administra- 
tion each year, to see if the teacher 
is doing his best to make his course 
as interesting, stimulating and in- 
formative as possible. 

If you believe that D.V.C. should 
have a Teacher and Course Evalua- 
tion Program, and do not want to 
get involved, write a note down 
and place it under the Publications 
door, in Ulman Hall. We would like 
to see how the majority of the stu- 
dents feel. If we get a large re- 
sponse, we will see what we can 
do to get the ball rolling . . . and 
keep it rolling until it is passed.

On a recent balmy winter eve- 
ning the students of D.V.C. were 
greeted with a pleasant surprise 
when they arrived at the dining 
hall for dinner. It was a fitting end 
to an unusually spring-like day. 

The meal was called a buffet, 
and it was great. For the first time 
in several years, you could get a 
true choice of food instead of the 
usual lesser of two evils. The line 
was generally shorter than usual, 
and moved along much more 
quickly than is customary. Not only 
tnat, you could even go back for 
full portion "seconds" and "thirds"! 

This was truly a memorable eve- 
ning. Instead of grumbling about 
the quality or quantity of the food, 
almost every student was smiling 
because he was enjoying himself 
and filling himself with food. 

I would like to take this oppor- 
tunity to thank Mr. Heaps and his 
staff publicly for a job well done 
and to ask him, on behalf of the 
students, to have these buffets more 
often. Perhaps these buffets could 
even replace the traditional, though 
outmoded, family-style meal.

Dear Editor: 

I would like to use "The Ram" to ex- 
press congratulations from myself and 
several alumni. We agreed the Mush- 
room Concert presented by the sopho- 
more class was a great step towards a 
college led by students and administra- 

The fine work of the cheerleaders add- 
ed to the college atmosphere of home- 
coming. The matriculation of coeds into 
Del Val life can only indicate a dynamic 
growth. The presence of coeds was not 
the only surprising addition; the in- 
creased involvement of the entire stu- 
dent body was indicated by the fine 
regalia of floats. 

As a current high school teacher, I am 
asked about Del Val by many students. 
By observing this years growth, I can 
urge them to apply to Del Val, a college 
definitely moving forward.

The Ram 

Delaware Valley College 

Doylestown, Pa. 18901 

Dear Editor: 

I have received the copy of the Ram, 
dated November 12, 1971. It reached me 
when I was in a reflecting mood. Ram 
took me back to April 11, 1909, when I 
arrived at the National Farm School. I 
remember distinctly walking out of the 
small railroad station to the main build- 
ing. The street on both sides was lined 
with maple trees already in leaf. I'm 
wondering whether they are still there. 

We had a student paper called the 
"Gleaner" to which I occasionally con- 
tributed, and since then the desire to 
write never left me. 

I left the school in August of 1912 
and went back to Chicago where I start- 
ed to attend a law school. During the 
same time, I started writing short stories 
and various articles which were publish- 
ed where I lived. 

I was licensed to practice law in 1916 
and stayed in the profession for forty- 
three years. A law practice is not con- 
ducive to writing stories, so I abandoned 
writing. I am now retired, and strange 
to say the desire to write came back. 

I have written a novel: "The Disen- 
chanted Lawyer," published about three 
weeks ago by Exposition Press, Inc., of 
Jericho, New York. In it, I allude to the 
time spent at the National Farm School 
by a mythical character called Joseph 
Black. He tells of his activities and of 
his life at farm school. 

I really don't know why I'm telling 
you all this. Maybe it's because the arri- 
val of Ram awakened within me memor- 
ies of the by-gone years. 

Just to keep busy, I have completed 
my second novel and am contemplating 
starting a third. 

On page three of Ram, President 
James Work, talks to the freshmen. 
When I lived at the school, there was a 
student named James Work. Is he the 
President of your School now? I'm cur- 
ious to know. Will you tell me, please?

It seems that before we get to 
publish any up-coming events, they 
have already come and gone. 
Therefore, I believe we can justly 
classify the following as "club nos- 
talgia' . 

It certainly has been a good year 
for the ski buffs here at Del. Val. 
Due to the lack of local snow, they 
had to travel quite a way to get in 
some good skiing. As a matter of 
fact, over ten of them flew to 
Europe during Christmas vacation 
and aid a little skiing Jean-Claude 
Killy style. They have also planned 
trips to both Vermont and the Po- 
conos. It's amazing how after all 
that traveling around, one member 
still has trouble getting out of the 
parking lot safely. 

This year is undoubtedly looking 
up for the shutter bugs on campus. 
With the addition of a dehumidifier 
to the darkroom, we no longer have 
to cope with either damp pictures 
or moldy photographers. They are 
also pleased to announce the ar- 
rival of a new flash unit ( what ever 
that is!). 

The Food Industry Club met late 
last month to discuss a variety of 
topics. Among these provocative 
subjects were many pertaining to 
club trips, including a play, hoc! ay 
game, and perhaps a club party. 
Members are reminded that A-Day 
exhibits should be begur. soon. 

As for our friends in the Equine 
Club, (that means "horse" if you 
are not up on your prestigious lan- 
guage ) , they are also quite busy. A 
program of guest speakers is 
planned. The topics range from 
horse breeding to Equine En- 
cephalitis. Films on the subject are 
shown quite often. They are also 
discussing the possibility of a horse 
show next fall. As always, new 
members are encouraged. 

Although the bees aren't very 
busy during the winter months, 
there is still a lot of buzzing going 
on at the Apiary house. The So- 
ciety is proud to announce that 
their root has been insulated and 
equipment repaired. Everyone is 
reminded that honey is still for 
sale, and may be purchased from 
any club member. 

The Scuba Club is really begin- 
ning to activate their tanks ( as we 
say in the swim biz). On February 
19 the club will feature a program 
of scuba movies and live-equip- 
ment display. The cost is $1.50, and 
naturally, all are welcome. 

The club is soon to sponsor a 
raffle, hoping to raise money to buy 
its own equipment. A return trip to 
Florida is also planned. For more 
info see Dave Acton or Bob Web- 

Thanks goes to the many club 
reporters who make this column 
possible. Clubs are reminded that

In its second year of entity the Dela- 
ware Valley Scuba Club has increased 
to a twenty-five member enrollment. At 
this time all members have completed 
Y.M.C.A. certification. This course con- 
sists of 30 hours; 10 hours in the class- 
room and 20 hours spent in the water, 
beside this a written final and open 
water test is mandatory. 

Recently fifteen new divers of the 
club completed this requirement, which 
for many involved extensive swimming 
and physical conditioning. Congratula- 
tions go out to the following divers, 
namely Joe Lelli, Joe Nawoczenski, Kurt 
Zintner, Drew Paxson, Dan Daransky, 
Tom Hotaling, Walt Hopkins, Mike Ack- 
ley, John Wilsner, Warren Curtin, Bill 
Lenz, Glen Doph, Craig Hartman, Dave 
Foreman and Bob Wishhusen. Under the 
supervision of their instructor Mr. Chuck 
Le Kites at the Central Bucks East High 

The most important phase of the 
course was the open water dive to Rich- 
land Quarry near Myerstown, Pa. on 
Sunday, December 5, 1971. (On this 
date the air temperature hovered 
around the 27" mark and the water tem- 
perature 38°.) Arriving at ten- in the 
morning the group had to change in 
cold and cramped dressing quarters. 
Donning full wet suits and equipment 
each member headed toward the quarry 
banks. Diving in pairs with an instructor, 
to a depth of fifty feet they had seen 
visibility to be very poor. This did not 
hamper their enthusiasm. Upon reaching 
the bottom each member was given a 
personal congratulation. They then went 
off in various pairs to explore sites 
which consisted of railroad tracks, an old 
crane and an overturned milk car that 
could be explored from the inside. 

This open water dive ended their 
Y.M.C.A. course but was only the be- 
ginning to a lifetime of new and excit- 
ing adventure. Good luck D.V.C., Scuba

For the past few weeks, the 
Freshman class officers have been 
considering a proposition for allow- 
ing Freshmen to park their cars on 
campus. The idea being consider- 
ed at the present time would give 
a certain number of students park- 
ing privileges during the second 
semester only. There would be a 
charge of $7.50 for that semester. 
Of course, this proposition must go 
before the student government and 
the administration before it can be 
put into effect. 

The freshman class officers feel 
that any student who has the re- 
sponsibility and the sincere desire 
to study will do so whether he has 
a car available or not. The officers 
also believe that the first semester 
should be a time of adjustment to 
college life and the studying that 
goes with it. However, anyone who 
does not want to study cannot be 
forced to do so by holding back his 
driving privileges. 

There are, at the present time, 
about seventy-five parking spaces 
that are not being utilized. Should 
the proposition come into effect, 
the permits will be given on a first- 
come, first-served basis. The Fresh- 
man class will be advised as soon 
as possible if this should happen.

Dairy & Livestock Judging 

Teams Honored at Annual 

Science Banquet 

The Annual Delaware Valley College 
Animal Science Banquet was held Wed- 
nesday, December 8, 1971 at the Col- 
lcgeville Inn in Collegeville, Pa. 

The affair was attended by members 
of the College administration, members 
of the faculty of Animal and Dairy Hus- 
bandry and over one hundred students. 

Dr. Tibor Pelle, Chairman of the Divi- 
sion of Animal Science served as Mas- 
ter of Ceremonies for the dinner which 
honored members of the Dairy and Live- 
stock Judging Teams. In his opening re- 
marks Dr. Pelle emphasized die educa- 
tional value of being a member of a 
judging team. 

Mr. Richard Smith, Coach for the 
Dairy Judging Team presented awards 
for individual and team achievements. 
Members included John Hageman, 
Thomas Wakefield, Everett Halstead, 
Kenneth Risser, Bruce Horning, Harry 
Brokaw and Bradley Wise. The overall 
results for the year included a second 
place ranking at the Eastern States Ex- 
position in Springfield, Massachusetts, 
ninth at the Pennsylvania All-American 
Show in Harrisburg, ninth place at the 
International Contest in Madison, Wis- 
consin and third at the National Contest 
in Columbus, Ohio. 

The program then was turned over to 
Mr. Lee Wagner, Coach for the Live- 
stock Judging Team, who then presented 
awards to individual members for their 
accomplishments this year. Members in- 
cluded, Ronald Sollenberger, Russell 
Angstadt, Richard Osborn, Richard 
Smith, Russell Kenny and Richard Leh- 
man. Overall results in Livestock were 
a second place ranking at Eastern States 
Exposition in Springfield, ninth place at 
the Keystone International Show in Har- 
risburg, ninth place at the Eastern Na- 
tional Exposition in Maryland Kid a 
twenty-eighth rank at the Intern.! Lional 
Livestock Exposition in Chicago, Illinois. 
After the presentation of awards Dr. 
Pelle called on Professor Ben Morgan 
from the Pennsylvania State University 
who delivered the main address. 

Professor Morgan discussed his recent 
tour of New Zealand and Australia and 
described the progress being made in 
the development of new agricultural 
methods. Of particular interest was the 
use of pasture grass as the only source of 
nutrition in livestock production. To ac- 
complish this producers have established 
controlled rotation of pasture lands and 
in New Zealand the government has 
sponsored a program of aerial dispersion 
of seed, lime and fertilizer for the pro- 
motion of quality pasture lands. 

Professor Morgan closed out the eve- 
ning mentioning that he was pleased that 
so many young people in the audience 
had selected a career in agriculture, and 
hoped that they would find in their chos- 
en field as much fulfillment as he has 
enjoyed in his.

Mark Wolfe, 67 

Serves In 

Philippines With 

Peace Corps 

Mark Wolfe, class of '67 and his wife 
are serving as volunteers in Santiageo, 
Isabela in the Philippines. Following 
completion of graduate school at Ver- 
mont in '69 the Wolfes left for Molokai, 
Hawaii, to begin training for their Peace 
Corps assignment in the Philippines. 

Training tends to be rugged-to select 
out those that might have problems ad- 
justing to living in a different culture. 
The Wolfes spent six to eight hours daily 
learning to speak Ilicano - a dialect 
spoken only in the northern Luzon area 
of the Philippines. Mark said "learning 
to speak a foreign language was not that 
difficult. There were no tests, assign- 
ments or books to pressure me. Language 
groups were small - four or five trainees 
and a Philippino instructor. We were 
like two-year olds learning new sounds 
and repeating a thousand times after the 
instructor." In addition to language each 
day Mark had culture and agriculture 
training. Agriculture training consisted of 
learning about soils, plants, irrigation, 
diseases and the overall agriculture 
planning for the Philippines. Margie had 
training in public health and nutrition. 
Following Molokai, the Wolfes went to 
Bayambang, Philippines to complete 
training. This was a tough introduction 
to prepare them for the next two years; 
not all of the memories were pleasant. 

At one point Margie had a six-day 
case of food poisoning and Mark came 
down with a case of ascaris (round 
worms). After they combated the dis- 
comforts of both, Mark wrote, "Those 
are the breaks and we are both cured 
and feeling pretty good." There were 
other discouragements also - "Motiva- 
tion is running low as is morale. We are 
doing pretty good but some couples 
have left as was expected. Time will 

Time did tell and in June '70 Mark 
and Margie were sworn in as Peace 
Corps volunteers and were soon off to 
the site. Directions to Santiageo would 
vex the most ardent traveler. Mark sent 
directions home, "To get to our site you 
have to take the ferry across the Cagay- 
an River, which takes about an hour. 
Then ride west for an hour and reach 
Roxas, the main town. Out of Roxan go 
toward the mountains and cross another 
river. If the water is low you can ford 
by jeep but if it is high, a boat is the 
only way." And then home . . . 

In the community the Wolfes built a 
bamboo hut raised on stilts. The eleva- 
tion allows for storage space and also so 
the wind can come up through the bam- 
boo slat floor for coolness. The hut has 
a porch, living room, bedroom, and sort 
of bathroom. The toilet is a bowl with 
a trap under it and is big enough to 
slosh a pail of water through it. "Now 
if we only had a roof on the bathroom," 
he wrote, "as rainy nights are hell." 
Both the roof and walls have a tendency 
to leak in heavy rain but a quick sheet 
and blanket cover-up keep them as dry 
as possible. 

They use Coleman kerosene lamps for 
light, and water is kept in earthen jugs. 
Cooking is done with bottled gas since 
it is cheaper than heating with wood. 
All clothes are hand-washed at the 

For a bed, the Wolfes are sleeping on 
a frame with bamboo slats for box 
springs and a mattress on top of that. 

Mark has placed window boxes out- 
side the hut for his home garden where 
he grows vegetables. Cardens are a 
problem since chickens, pigs, goats, 
water buffalo and kids run without re- 

In the beginning, food was a real 
problem to the young couple. It was dif- 
ficult to buy foods they had never seen, 
never mind tasted. For their first home 

meal Mark killed and dressed a chicken. 
They offer a recipe of mackeral stew and 
fried mudfish to any folk brave, and also 
specialities such as frogs and caribou 
meat. They were also privileged in a 
dog picnic — an honor as dog is a real 
delicacy over there. 

Pork is frequently on the menu as it 
is fresh every day and fish is fresh twice 
a week from the South China Sea. 

Their purpose as volunteers - to in- 
crease food production and intake of 
protein. Among his first tasks were 
building a pig and rabbit hutch and a 
chicken cage. Also planting gardens was 
another project Mark undertook. 

The Wolfes began an infant-and-pre- 
school-feeding program for malnourisned 
children. It was designed to educate the 
mothers in the area about the value of 
a certain high-protein bean. However, 
during the time the couple had been in 
the country, these beans had increased 
in price due to inflation to a point where 
the cost was prohibitive to the program, 
and to the mothers buying the beans. 
As a substitute for the beans, the Wolfes 
found that eggs could be a good source 
of protein if they were available. Ac- 
tually the hens were available, but most 
farmers lacked the small amount of 
capital to begin a semi-commercial pro- 
ject, i.e., 25 hens raised behind a per- 
son's house or in a person's shed. That 
number would allow a farmer to have 
enough eggs to feed his children, plus 
enough left over to sell for a small pro- 
fit. The profit would be used again as 
capital to assist someone else in obtain- 
ing hens. In short it, would be a self- 
sustaining project once it began. 

The cost to buy feed and raise one 
hen to the egg-laying stage cost about 
$2.00. The farmer supplied one-half of 
the amount needed for cages and a suit- 
able building. His investment insured 
that he would maintain the project. The 
other half came from people in Mark's 
home town of Florence, Massachusetts. 
Willing persons sent $1.00 to Mark who 
then purchased a chick in Manila and 
gave it to a farmer who had built his 
cage and building. 

Mark set up a demonstration coop un- 
der his hut, had so many inquiries after 
the six started laying eggs that an order 
for 100 chickens was placed. In less than 
a year 335 hens went out to 35 persons. 

According to Mark "things to date are 
running well. The hens have met no 
major catastrophies and people are be- 
ginning to believe in commercial feeds 
and keeping hens in cages (not pigs 
though)." The project had advanced to 
the point now that the farmers are buy- 
ing day-old chicks and brooding them. 
Originally the people bought four- 
month old chicks. They were paying 
someone in Manila to raise the chicks 
for those four months thus making the 
eggs more expensive. 

Mark believes that the chicken project 
can run without him. Time will tell 
since Mark and Margie prepare to leave 
in February now that they have served 
two years. Despite the hardships they 
faced, not to mention the inconvenience, 
the Wolfes feel that they have done 
something worthwhile. They have work- 
ed hard, hoped for a lot and achieved 
something good.

Open Letter To 
The Student 

And The 
Student Body 

One semester has passed us; a 
second is beginning to unfold. 
What has happened to the Student 
Government in that time? What is 
going to happen now? 

The first semester was one of 
communication construction; the 
Student Government put most of 
its efforts into areas involving ad- 
ministrative and student commu- 
nication. A majority of the first se- 
mester's weekly meetings were dis- 
cussions of current campus prob- 
lems, students' feelings and reac- 
tions to particular issues. Student 
body meetings were held to hear, 
first hand, student concerns, to give 
administrative views on those con- 
cerns, and to give the Student Gov- 
ernment something to work on. 
Few recommendations were made 
and no visual changes noticed. 

I have been asked by many stu- 
dents if I would call this year's 
government a success. My reply is 
yes, in spite of the non-interest 
shown by our government mem- 
bers and the lack of student sup- 
port. We went broke three-fourths 
of the way through the semester, 
our mixers and concert were trage- 
dies, and in terms of instant change 
we were a flop. As of today three 
government members have re- 
signed and two have been dis- 
missed. The members of govern- 
ment have failed to utilize their 
committees and continue to make 
our Monday night meetings a mun- 
dane funeral. 

How then is it possible to label 
our government a success? Our at- 
tempts at increased communication 
have worked and we are receiving 
more and more assistance from the 
administration, particularly from 
the Dean of Students Office. We 
have a strong idea of student needs 
and are now placing those needs 
in the form of recommendations to 
the administration. We are able to 
present members of the administra- 
tion to the students in an informal 
meeting. A seminar program has 
been established to provide our stu- 
dents with more information and 
to augment our educational process 
on a discussion level. The most im- 
portant factor is that we have been 
able to get some of our students 
talking about our problems, our re- 
lationships within our community 
and our role outside of the college. 

What is in store for this semes- 
ter? A great number of recommen- 
dations will be given to the admin- 
istration, concerning class attend- 
ance, freshmen cars, open door 
hours, summer work programs, stu- 
dent-faculty communications, and 
a number of revisions in the stu- 
dent handbook. 

Will we make progress in all of 
these areas? I can say with firm 
conviction no, we will not make 
progress in all of the areas. It 
would be absurd to assume that we 
could. We can expect more help 
from the administration (I pray 
our proposals are given written 
comment before they are returned 
to us ) . We can expect healthy dis- 
sent and discussion, we can expect 
a harder working student govern- 
ment, and we can expect continued 
investigation into our slowly chang- 
ing system. 

All of us are too quick to place 
the blame of our frustrating condi- 
tions upon our Board of Trustees, 
administrators and student govern- 
ment. There is another letter which 
is addressed to our administrators 
presenting them with our problems 
and how I feel they can aid us best. 
It is not all their fault; part of the 
blame falls on all of us as students. 
We must be free in our communi- 
cation and active in our support of 
the student government. We must 
know your needs to be able to meet 
them. If we don't know those needs, 
then we must consider ourselves 
ineffective and consequently dis- 

The coming semester is critical 
to the future of Delaware Valley 
College. It must be a combined 
effort of all segments or our com- 
munity and must be initiated by

D.VX.'s Best To 


by Conrad Adami 
Intramural Bowling League President 

On Saturday, December 4, 1971, the 
top five bowlers from the DVC Intra- 
mural Bowling League traveled to Eliza- 
bethtown College to bowl against the 
best bowlers from the Elizabethtown In- 
tramural Bowling League. 

The DVC team consisted of Mike 
Small, Rich Tower, Bill Briegel, Brian 
Newhouse, and Conrad Adami. Al- 
though the combined averages of the 
DVC team were 31 pins less than the 
averages of the Elizabethtown team, the 
DVC bowlers were determined to win. 

The DVC bowlers won the first game 
853 to 843 with the help of a 204 game 
by Brian Newhouse. Despite Bill 
Briegel's 201 in the second game Eliza- 
bethtown won 921 to 814. The third 
game was taken by the DVC team 860 
to 826. Finally, total pins scored (which 
counts as a game) went to Elizabeth- 
town due to their high score in the sec- 
ond game 2590 to 2532. 

The result of the match was a split 
with DVC winning 2 and losing 2 and 
the Elizabethtown team winning 2 and 
losing 2. Although the Elizabethtown 
team had an advantage with higher 
average bowlers, the enthusiasm of the 
DVC team helped offset their disadvan- 

Another match between the bowlers 
from DVC and the Elizabethtown team 
is being scheduled for sometime in 
March at the Key Lanes in Doylestown, 
where the DVC team will have the ad- 
vantage of bowling on their home lanes. 
Any students interested in watching the 
match should check the bulletin boards 
in the cafeteria for details. As a service 
to students who wish to attend but have 
no transportation, the DVC Intramural 
Bowling League members will provide 
transportation to the lanes at times to 
be posted.

by Ed Biddle 
No doubt about it, first year head 
mentor, W. Mark Stephenson has 
established himself as the leader of 
our green and gold grapplers. 

This year's squad has compiled 
a fine 8-1-0 record, losing only to 
Lycoming (22-12) on January 29th. 
The Aggies have scored impressive 
victories over Juniata (30-10), Ur- 
sinus (26-17), Western Maryland 
(32-7), PMC (41-6), Lebanon Val- 
ley (36-9), Glassboro (24-9), Dick- 
ison (41-0) and Rider (29-11). Out 
of a total of 90 individual bouts, 
Delaware Valley wrestlers have 
listed 61 wins, 21 losses and 8 ties. 
Outstanding records have been 
posted by: returning MAC Champ, 
George Cummins (8-1), Brent 
Franklin (8-1), who is incidentally 
the top DVC pinner with 4. sopho- 
more Joe Thonus (7-1-1) and fresh- 
man Dan Delorme (6-0-2). Also 
checking in with winning records 
are: Al Vorhauer (7-2 N , Ron Jen- 
nings (5-3), Al Bartlebaugh (5-2- 
2), Homan (5-1), Ray Johnson (3- 
5-1), Jeff Piscitelli (2-2-1), Hoppes 
(1-0), and Tim Snyder (0-1) have 
also helped to preserve the fine 
team effort. The squad was quite 
unfortunate to lose captain Larry 
Eisenhart (2-1) with a knee injury 
and John Hopper (2 1) with an 
arm injury. 

The Valley's next encounter will 
be Susquehanna University, away 
on February 5th.

Lake Archer 
Its Past 



by Peter D. Ference 

The past of Lake Archer to say 
the least is an interesting one. 
About 40 or 50 years ago there was 
a lake at the present site of Lake 
Archer, Through the years silting 
and the possibility of a low water 
table the lake became more of a 
marsh. At that time it was used as 
a dumping site for the trash. 

The first pond was constructed 
around 1908. Originally it had been 
the worst place on campus in the 
aesthetic sense. The early problems 
had been, the availability of water 
and the substratum on which the 
pond rested. 

In 1961 Dr. Work asked the 
agronomy department for sugges- 
tions as to the improvement of the 
site. Two solutions were sited. The 

}>ond could be filled in and made 
evel with the landscape. This in 
itself would present trie problem 
of what to do with the drainage of 
45 or 50 acres from the Burpee 
farm. It was decided that the pond 
would be reconstructed, since it 
was a marshey area. There was 
thought to be some underground 
streams nearby. 

It was witn the leadership of 
Kirk Brown from the student coun- 
cil, college officials, and the U. S. 
Soil Conservation Service which 
made it possible. Through the 
S.C.S. ana Dr. Julian Prundeanu, 
Professor of Agronomy, the pond 
was developed. 

S.C.S. determined that the sub- 
strata of that area was suitable for 
a pond. Everything had gone ac- 
cording to plan, the pond was 
filled. In June of the following year 
the water level of the pond started 
to go down. Since the readings for 
soil sampling are taken 50 ft. or so 
apart, it was very possible to miss 
some possible places for leaking. 
More samples were taken and it 
was found the leak could be sealed 
probably by chemical means. Stu- 
dent Government then put out an 
additional 1,000 dollars, for seal- 
ing, in addition to the 2,000 dollars 
for construction. This was found to 
take care of most of the leakage 

In the next issue I will go into 
the configuration and characteris- 
tics of the pond. 

I express my sincere thanks to 
Dr. Julian Prundeanu for his help 
in preparing this article. 


The generation, the concerned 
generation who believes that the 
United States' economy is going to 
collapse from the environment con- 
tinues in its archaic ways. 

The pollution committee which 
most students consider a joke ac- 
tually is one of the most positive 
methods of fighting pollution. From 
the Student Government Secretar- 
ial Minutes, February 28, 1972, a 
statement goes like this, "A ques- 
tion was raised as to whether all 
trash collected on campus could 
be recycled. Due to a shortage of 
help this is not possible." Beautiful! 
Ana that's not what the world is 
going to look like if something isn't 

For people interested in solving 
this problem one should start at 
home where ever that may be. Per- 
sonal involvement, join the Sierra 
Club, write to the government, use 
your car less, turn off unnecessary 
lights, don't waste water, these are 
only a few ideas applicable to each 
individual at Delaware Valley Col- 

O.K., sure — there are lots of con- 
tradictions. The President expresses 
his grave concern about trie de- 
struction of the environment then 
orders the air conditioning in the 
White House doubled, thereby 
doubling the wattage. 

The earth doesn't belong to us; 
we belong to it. Odd as it may 
sound, it's true. We depend on 
food, clothes and everything we 
have. The students at Delaware 
Valley are being fooled. When was 
the last time you visited New York 
City or any pollution-infested area? 
Probably never! One has seen pic- 
tures from magazines and newspa- 
pers and it gets old after a while. 
Abuse by industrialists, govern- 
mental agencies and unconcerned 
citizens will destroy us. 

A space ship in trouble, running 
out of life support systems, no 
other supplies, overcrowding and 
no emergency planning. Most peo- 
ple feel the spaceship exists for 
them; most people don't know.

Many students here at Delaware 
Valley College are not very consid- 
erate of one another. When it 
comes time to do some serious 
studying, especially for a major 
examination, many students leave 
their rooms and migrate to the li- 
brary. The majority of these stu- 
detns are under the impression that 
the library is a place where one 
can study in complete solitude. 
This, of course, as many of you 
know, is a false illusion. It seems 
as though many of the students 
(especially the coeds) think of the 
library as a lounge, a place to so- 
cialize. Today the hbrary is no 
longer a place where one can get 
serious about his study habits, it's 
more of a meeting place. I wish 
only that students here at Delaware 
Valley College would have the re- 
spect for their fellow students and 
classmates in the library if not any- 
where else, as is usually the rule. 

Mrs. Work? 




Last September, I became a 
member ot the Student Govern- 
ment as a representative of the 
Class of 1975. Monday, February 
28, six months later, I resigned. 
The question: Why? 

There are three categories of 
reasons. Personal and academic 
were two, which I prefer not to 
discuss openly. The third is what 
I will elaborate on now. 

The school is filled with discon- 
tent. I quote, a student, "It's not 
only the freaks, it's also the 
straights." That's the beautiful 
thing — everybody's involved. It's 
no one group — it's the masses. The 
masses, and only the masses rule. 
We're finally getting it together, 
and now the changes will snow- 
ball. "There's something in the 

The discontent comes from op- 
pression. Students want, Adminis- 
tration refuses. That's not my opin- 
ion; it's fact. This is what the stu- 
dents tell me. I believe that when 
and only when we all get together, 
with open minds, and discuss the 
needs of the students and the rea- 
sons for the refusals by the admin- 
istration, we will find out one thing 
— due to a lack of communication 
theer is a total lack of understand- 
ing. Yes. It's so damn obvious, it's 
hitting us in the face. ¥ei how can 
you communicate when people re- 
fuse to meet? 

The Student Government is sup- 
posed to be the machinery by 
which Joe Aggie may communicate 
with the Administration. I believe 
it's like playing a game of chess 
with someone 1,000 miles away by 

Last semester, Government's ac- 
complishments, insofar as changes 
go, could be written in capital let- 
ters on the inside of a matchbook. 
Know why? Government's efforts 
were all in the direction of improv- 
ing communications. It was highly 
successful, and the time and effort 
was well worth it. Now where do 
we go from here? Government 
started in the right direction, and 
I hope they proceed. So far, a fan- 
tastic job has been done. Yet, I feel 
the real test is yet to come. 

I think the students should real- 
ize one thing. We do have one 
great gift. I talk of people such as 
Dean Fulcohly, Dean Tasker and 
all others associated with that seg- 
ment of the Administration. How 
can I say this? From the numerous 
conferences and informal discus- 
sions I've had with these people, I 
see that they are sincerely with us, 
the students. Many times, Dean 
Fulcohly has said to me, "We want 
to work with you." For all that I 
have done, and for all that I have 
attempted to do, I owe a great deal 
to Dean Fulcohlv and the people 
administrativelv below him. Even 
now, I am stilf working with him. 
And only by working with the Ad- 
ministration can you find out where 
their heads are.

(Continued from page 1) 

In the past six months on Stu- 
dent Government, I've learned a lot 
of valuable information. I believe 
that I am now in a much better 
position to do the things I want to 
do, without the pressures and the 
red tape. Work directly with the 
students, communicate directly 
with the Administration. 

At one time I thought that the 
students didn't give a damn. When 
I resigned, I found out just the 
opposite, and that I had a lot of sup- 
port. Presently, I speak as a spokes- 
man for the students. Progress has 
been made, and attempts at Stu- 
dent - Administration communica- 
tions will be made. An understand- 
ing by the Administration of the 
students and their needs is being 
accomplished. People now clearly 
see that what has been requested 
is supported by the whole popula- 
tion, and not just a fraction as had 
been thought. Believe it or not, this 
matters a lot. 

Some people have said that I 
was pressured into resigning by the 
Administration. No, I wasn't. I re- 
signed on my own accord. The 
Government and the Administra- 
tion expressed their regrets, and I 
was asked by members of the Ad- 
ministration to remain on Govern- 
ment. I didn't, and I have very 
good personal reasons. Yet, I still 
want to work, and will. 

Let's hope tomorrow's better. 

"/ wander through future's past darkness. 
Slowly and blindly; 

Where I will end 

Will be just the beginning. 
Let me carry on 'til tomorrow 
Let us pray it will be better."

Who Says That There 
Is Nothing To Do? 

Mr. Henry Kushlan(left) discusfing canned fruits in Mr. Walter Wood's 
(right) class on Hort. Products, February 7, 1972. 

Mr. Henry Gushlan, Head of the 
Philadelphia area of the Processed 
Fruit and Vegetable Inspection 
Division, U.S. Dept. of Agricul- 
ture, presented a seminar to Mr. 
Woods Horticultural Products 
class on Monday. February 7. 

Mr. Kushlan, on his fourth trip 
to our campus to present seminars, 
ably demonstrated the many as- 
pects involved in grading canned 
peaches, canned applesauce, frozen 
green beans, and frozen lima 

Mr. Kushlan demonstrated a 
special device for measuring the 
consistency of apple sauce and 
showed a number of devices used 
in grading processed foods. He also 
discussed job possibilities with the 
USDA and answered many ques- 
tions about the federal government. 

All of us benefited from Mr. 
Kushlan's efforts after he arrived 
at 8:00 a.m. on a snowy Monday 
morning. On previous occasions he 
has brought with him other USDA 
people, some from Washington, to 
make an even larger program. 

As Mr. Wood points out, this 

type of seminar, given by very 
knowledgeable people like Mr. 
Kushlan, presents up-to-date infor- 
mation to the student, and with the 
discussion period, allows the stu- 
dent to participate in "what's hap- 
pening NOW" in the fields they in- 
tend to enter. 

Mr. Wood also pointed out the 
possibility of getting a number of 
people from Industry and Govern- 
ment onto our campus for a one- 
day or two - day seminar. This 
would help the student and would 
put DVC closer to the center of 
"what's happening NOW". 

Who says that there is nothing 
to do Friday nights? Effective im- 
mediately, another activity is being 
added to DVC's Friday night life. 
Conrad Adami, the president of 
DVC's Intramural Bowling League, 
has negotiated a special arrange- 
ment for bowling rates for non- 
league bowling. 

Mr. Mike Mignogno, the man- 
ager of Key Bowling Lanes in 
Doylestown, has agreed to charge 
only $2.00 to any DVC student and 
his or her date after 9:30 p.m. on 
any Friday night. The $2.00 price 
includes bowling shoes for ooth 
bowlers and three games of bowl- 
ing for each person. These dis- 
counted rates will be charged upon 
presentation of your DVC ID card. 

Mr. Mignogno also said that stu- 
dents arriving as late as midnight 
would have sufficient time to bowl 
three games before closing and that 
all DVC students bowling at any 
other time would be charged $1.00 
for three games of bowling and 
bowling shoes, and their dates 
would be charged the full retail

It seems to be the thing to do 
nowadays, to criticize the "Ram" 
on its lack of publication and its 
lack of style in writing. Several 
students are complaining that the 
paper should come out once a 
week. Well, if they looked back to 
the Fall of 1971, they would see 
that the paper did come out once 
a week, but it was just filled with 
club news. In the Spring of 1971 
there was a change of editor and 
the paper. It was believed by the 
editor and the staff that a weekly 
school newspaper with four pages 
of club news would be a waste of 
time and money. So the paper 
changed to a bi-weekly paper with 
some club news and several human 
interest stories. 

This year ( Fall 1971 and Spring 
1972 ) with a drastic lack of writers 
the paper has come out only three 
times prior to this issue. The staff 
and I are having a difficult time in 
getting articles for the piper be- 
cause no one wants to write; they 
just want to complain verbally. 

So I am asking that if any stu- 
dent who wishes to write a com- 
plaint, human interest or any other 
type of article, and who keeps it in 
good taste, should bring it to my 
room, Cooke 212. 1 will then do my 
best to put it in the next issue. 

The paper is also interested in 
new staff members who would like 
to earn % credit per semester. The 
staff members usually write about 
subjects that they are interested in. 
To receive an "A", you are required 
to write only a few articles a se- 

So, if you want a weekly news- 
paper, give us the articles to put 
one out each week.

The mark of a mature adult is 
his willingness and capacity to 
stand on his own feet, to take re- 
sponsibility and be independent of 
others. Keeping this in mind, we 
the concerned students at Dela- 
ware Valley College feel that cer- 
tain administrative policies are 
archaic in this ever changing world 
in which we live. 

The detrimental policies to which 
we object at present are: open door 
policy, drinking policy, cut system 
policy, female co-ed housing poli- 
cies, summer employment policy, 
cafeteria policy, and insurance 

We, as concerned students at 
Delaware Valley College, feel that 
the administration has enforced 
these policies with good intent, but 
for their own interest. They have 
failed to reach out and find the 
TRUE feeling of the students. 

The following policies we feel 
are more suitable to these constant 
changing times and are in the bet- 
ter interest of our students today. 

1) A new Visitation Policy should 
consist of 24 hours, se ^n days 
a week with the doors closed. 

2) An individual, twenty-one 
years of age, should be able to 
drink alcoholic beverages on 
campus. If he is mature and 
can drink everywhere else, 
why then can't he drink in the 
privacy of his room. 

3) The present cut system should 
be abolished and replaced by 
an unlimited cut system. A ma- 
ture student should want to go 
to class and not be forced to 
go. The decision should be the 
choice of the individual with- 
out the fear that overcutting 
will lead to failure of the 

4) A women's dormitory should 
be available for the women 
students. We feel that one of 
the present male dormitories 
should be given to the co-eds. 
We as students would assist in 
any way possible to help con- 
vert the living facilities. 

5) Summer Employment Policy 
should be abolished. Why? A 
student should be able to find 
a job in which he can make the 
most money because most stu- 
dents have to pay for part of 
their education and by the pre- 
sent policy a student is locked 
into an area where low paying 
jobs seem to be a bounding. 
Thus some students have great 
difficulties in financing their 

6) The policy for the Cafeteria is 
grossly unfair because the 
majority of the students pay 
for meals which they don't eat. 
A meal ticket system should be 
incorporated into the food 
policy by which a student re- 
ceives an X amount of meal tic- 
kets that he can use at his own 



"I we it you'll ee leaving, for &rzm vacation 


7) An insurance policy which 
will cover stolen goods when 
a door is locked should be put 
into effect. Presently if articles 
are stolen no compensation is 
given to the students. 

We feel that suppression breeds 
violence. We do not advocate vio- 
lence because this only widens the 
communication gap. But because of 
the present archiaic administrative 
policies many students feel that 
they are being forced more and 
more towards this kind of action. 
What we do advocate is under- 
standing and compassion on the 
part of the administration and a 
genuine effort to seek what the 
mature students desire. We must 
change in order to exist in this 
changing society.

Dear Administration, 
Faculty and Students, 

As we all know, Delaware Val- 
ley College has had a hard time 
trying to rectify our image being 
farmers. We have been fairly suc- 
cessful on most of our endeavors. 
One of our sore points we project 
to other schools and the public lies 
in our athletic department. This 
particular fault is our head basket- 
nail coach. 

This type of man under whom 
our students play is oppressive. 
They are subject to riciaule, foul 
names and even physical abuse, all 
of which are present during a 
game. One of the cardinal sins of 
sports is to berate a player in front 
of a large audience, which happens 
in every game. Never once has any- 
one heard praise from this man 
publicly or privately for their per- 
formance on court. Another prob- 
lem which is self evident is the 
policy of "Joe super sub." As soon 
as one of our players makes a mis- 
take, which is expected of anyone, 
he is placed in a ieodardizing po- 
sition of not completing that game 
or for that matter the rest of the 
season. This type of policy has a 
negative effect on our players. They 
are stifled enough not to "open 
up," thus frustrating their personal 
initiative which may be for the bet- 
terment of the team. I am not alone 
on these points. Many of the stu- 
dents and the team agree with me. 

Another aspect which was just 
brought to my attention is this 
man's handling of the cheerleaders. 
Cheerleaders are as much an inte- 
gral part of basketball as are the 
players. He treats these fine, de- 
voted young ladies as if they were 
out to scandalize the team and the 
school. All of these girls are fine 
people devoting themselves to our 
school. I dare this man to question 
the integrity of any of them. 

After talking to people who have 
seen his coaching work in high 
schools, they were surpirsed to find 
it doesn't work in college. I think 
everyone should be made aware of 
what is happening and of our 
image we project. I personally be- 
lieve that a re-evaluation of our 
head basketball coach is needed. 
This will help bring us from the 
bush league opinion to which we 
are subjected, to a fully recognized 
and respectable small college, 
which we are fully entitled to in 
this area. 

Sincerely yours, 

Robert R. Wischhusen, 73

Songs for Sigmund 

There's a new music — newer 
than Joni Mitchell, American Pie, 
the Taylor Family, and Mrs. King's 
rock Queen Carole. 

There's a new neon-lighted music 
that makes Janis Joplin seem like 
just another pretty voice and makes 
Frank Zappa the boy next door. 

This new multi - dimensional 
music is gaining impetus like the 
sound of umbilical cords snapping 
all around the country. 

In an era of environmental 
health, health foods and mental 
health, it's only natural that there 
should be Health Music. 

Music often has been used as a 
means toward health. For more 
than twenty years, psychologists 
have used music as a tool in treat- 
ment of mentally handicapped 
patients. Opera is well-known for 
its Mad Scenes. And many songs — 
from Deutschland Uber Alles to 
On, Wisconsin — have provoked 
an emotional reaction in their lis- 
teners. But now, music is changing 
its tune. 

Two new songwriters are writ- 
ing creatively cathartic music as 
they revel and reveal through musi- 
cally "meaningful" experiences. 

It all began about five years ago 
with Arthur Janov's controversial 
Primal Scream therapy. Neurosis, 
Janov says, is frozen childhood pain. 
All neuroses are symptoms for re- 
leasing that Primal Pain, brought 
about by unfulfilling childhood ex- 
periences relating to parents. He 
points to a single cure: The neuro- 
tic person must dismantle his de- 
fenses and return to where he made 
the decisions to act out expecta- 
tions of others rather than his own 
feelings. Janov's theory is complex 
but, briefly, the Primal patient 
must re-live pain to remove the 
"curse" in order to understand his 
neurotic tensions. Naturally, Moth- 
er and Father are an integral part 
of the therapy. The Primal patient 
is urged to call out his parents and, 
as he does so, the patient often be- 
gins screaming long and sorrowful 
sobs. This is the Primal Scream. 

But now, Primal Scream Mothers 
and Fathers have found their way 
to the phonograph. Dr. Janov's 
best-known patient is John Lennon, 
former Beatle. Lennon's latest two 
albums underscore his therapeutic 
involvements. In a song called 
"Mother," he musically withers in 
pain, screaming: "Mother, you had 
me, but I never had you / I wanted 
you, but you didn't want me . . . 
Good-byeee." He ends the album 
with a short and snappy song to 
the tune of Three Blind Mice: "My 
Mummy's dead / I can't get it 
through my head / I can't explain / 
so much pain / my Mummy's 

In his album, Lennon has crea- 
tively attempted to work out his 
Mother Thing, yelling at and for 
her at the beginning of the record 
. . . putting her to rest forever at 
the end. There is a blurred phono- 
graph of Lennon as a young boy 
on the album cover. 

Dory Previn's music is of the 
same genre. When her husband, 
Andre Previn, left her for Mia Far- 
row, Dory's psyche cracked. She 
was institutionalized. "While I was 
in the hospital," she has said, "I 
started writing to get some order 
out of chaos. What I've tried to do 
is bring the madness out in the 

And she's succeeded. Maybe too 
well. Her three albums contain 
more Mad Songs than all opera 
combined. In one song, she relives 
her four-month long sanitarium ex- 
perience. But mostly she sings 
about her parents. 

"Damn you, Mother / how I hate 
you / you will never know how 
deep / I must cling till you release 
me / I could kill you in your 
sleep / I would smile to watch your 
life blood creep across your wretch- 
ed hair yes, of course I love you, 
Mother / I'll never leave you ... I 

But behind each element of 
Dory's madness is an element of 
sadness that passes through the 
listener's ears and straight to the 

This song is dedicated to her 
father: "The telephone rang / my 
sister calling / Dad is dead? / when 
did it happen? / six a.m. she said / 
did he ask for me? / what did you 
say? / never mind . . . God is kind." 

Songs about parents have chang- 
ed somewhat since the days of "I 
want a girl, just like the girl . . ," 

Health Music affects the listener, 
too. It's easier to work out our own 
problems through someone else's 
efforts. And sing along. We can 
easily play audio voyeurs and 
eavesdrop on other people work- 
ing out their neuroses. And some of 
ours surely overlap. This Health 
Music has been called names from 
Freudian to Fraudulant — but it's 
a music that can teach us some- 
thing. Between Previn and Lennon, 
there are five albums to show for 
it. Might just be the perfect gift for 
your parents' anniversary.

Dear Aunt Lucy, 

When you called last night, you 
probably wondered who that loud 
voice was who answered the phone 
and what that barking was in the 

Wilbur, my first college room- 
mate, is staying with me again. We 
used to room together in one of 
those super-small dormitory rooms 
with paper-thin walls, tiny dressing 
stalls, indoor-outdoor linoleum tile 
— you know, a typical college 
dorm. I remember my first day at 
the dorm, wondering what my 
roommate would be like. I arrived 
three hours before he did and I 
guarded the bed near the window, 
making sure I'd get custody of the 
top three dresser drawers so I 
shouldn't have to bend over more 
than necessary. • 

And then Wilbur arrived, with 
a knapsack and a menagerie of 
cats, hamsters, birds, gerbils, cha- 
meleons, fish. Wilbur was an ani- 
mal freak. I'd wake up in the mid- 
dle of the night and find Wilbur's 
ten gerbils stuck between my toes, 
his four cats taunting the mynah 
bird, which was cawing obsceni- 
ties that would make the college 
newspaper look innocent. But Wil- 
bur didn't have a dog. 

And now after three years of be- 
ing away from that zoo, I am com- 
ing with Wilbur again. And not 

"I alwavs wanted a dog," he ex- 
plained when he arrived here. "You 
know, I used to see those movies 
like Rin Tin Tin, Lassie and Na- 
tional Velvet . . ." 

"National Velvet was a horse . . ." 
"I know, but I used to squint my 
eyes real tight and it looked like 
a dog. I always wondered what 
Elizabeth Taylor was doing riding 
a dog. Of course I called the SPCA 
immediately . . . 

". . . anyway, I finally got a dog 
a few weeks ago. She's sitting on 
your table . . . didn't you notice?" 

Devouring my table was the big- 
gest sheep dog I had ever seen; so 
large that even Richard Burton 
would be afraid to ride her. And if 
I hadn't noticed the dog, I certain- 
ly noticed the little Remembrances 
she had left from the door to the 
table, a 'la Hansel and Gretel, with- 
out the fairy tale charm. 

"Her name is Paddington," Wil- 
bur said. "But you can call her 


"No, Pad. Consider her your 
third roommate." 

"But will she pay rent?" I asked 
as Wilbur walked away. 

When Wilbur first got Pad, he 
lived in one of those apartment 
complexes (Withering Arms Ter- 
race East ) for swinging singles and 
young harried marrieds with paper- 
thin walls — just like the dorm. 
Robert Cher, a jealous young hus- 
band, and his wife, Pat, lived next 
door to Wilbur. 

But Wilbur was preoccupied, 
trying, in his unique booming voice, 
to teach Paddington tricks. "Roll 
over, Pad . . . sit, girl, ... lay down, 
Pad . . . fetch, Pad . . . play dead, 
girl ... get off the bed, Pad . . . 
bad girl . . . stay, Pad . . . good 
girl, good girl ... let me scratch 
your belly . . . how does that feel, 
Pad? . . . up, Pad . . . "and on and 
on . . . 

. . . until Robert Cher came 
bounding into Wilbur's apartment. 

"Okay, where is she?" 

"Who? Who?" Wilbur asked 

"My wife. My wife," Mr. Cher 
answered twice. "I heard you call- 
ing her, you disgusting wife-snatch- 
er, telling her to lay down and roll 
over and get off your bed . . ." 

"Better off than on, eh?" 

"Okay, kid," Mr. Cher said, grab- 
bing Wilbur. "Where is my wife?" 

"Beats me . . ." 

And he did. And as he did, Wil- 
bur tried to mumble something 
about "a dog, a dog . . .* 

"Oh yeah? I'll teach you nnfr to 
call my wife a dog . . ." And be did 
teach Wilbur. An eye, an ear and a 
nose worth. 

And Wilbur moved out Quickly. 
And moved into my place. Quick- 
lier. So you see, Aunt Lucy, that's 
what Wilbur and his dog are do- 
ing here. 

So now Wilbur spends his days 
at the doctor (a good eye, ear and 
nose man) and looks for a new 
apartment, although he doesn't 
seem to be in too much of a hurry. 

And I spend my days with an 
unruly dog named Paddington, 
wishing that Liz would leave Dick 
and ride away on Pad into the sun- 
set until a big The End flashes 
across my mind's screen and that 
this whole mess — Remembrances 
and all — is over. 

I haven't gotten around to tell- 
ing my newly-wed neighbors, Pat 
and Leonard Meister, about the 
dog yet. I've been too busy with 
the dog, trying to teach her to be- 
have — you know, "lay down, Pad 
. . . stay, Pad . . . sit, girl . . . roll 
over, Pad ... get off my bed, 
Pad . . .** 

Oh, now she's jumping on my 
desk and I think she wants some 
attention. "Do you want me to rub 
your belly, Pad?" 

Hey, someone just came in the 
apartment . . . It's, it's Mr. Meister 
. . . He's coming at me . . .

D.V.C.'s Best 
To Rider 

On March 18, the top bowlers 
from D.V.C.'s intramural league 
will go to Trenton, New Jersey, to 
participate in the Rider College In- 
vitational Team Bowling Tourna- 
ment. The team members are Mike 
Small, Bill Briegel, Rich Tower — 
intramural league treasurer, Brian 
Newhouse — intramural league pub- 
lications officer, and Conrad Adami 
— intramural league president and 
team captain. Since the date of the 
tournament has approached, the 
D.V.C. team has added extra prac- 
tice sessions to its regular practice 
schedule and league Dowling. Any 
students who would like to attend 
as spectators should contact Mr. 
Wolfgang for additional informa-

We Shall 

Drop tradition down the tunnel 
of the past for stationary topics re- 
main only in the past. All your 
faithful, decrepit, inane blobs rip 
your plump bodies away from the 
chains of imprisonment and thrust 
forth the piercing fork of advance- 
ment. Tarn through the stagnant 
mist of rotten cow dung and rise 
up upon your haunches and taste 
the sweet ebullience of the good 
life. Let yourself associate with this 
experience, release the wheels of 
progress and let your subconscious 
coast forth. Live not in the fur- 
nished house that has a comfort- 
able, atmosphere. Live to seek out 
the corrupt by implanting the fresh 
seed that wanders for light. Em- 
ploy into the soil all the richness 
of the world and you shall resist 
disease and infection with strong 
fibers. Crush them with the first 
blow and you will be victorious 
over the dead. March forward and 
conquer your obstacles; don't sit on 
your laurels and fade away.

What's her thing? Helping some- 
one who wants and needs it, like 
a junkie in Phyli who wants to kick 
the habit, a scared, homeless six- 
teen-year-old who's eight months 
pregnant and doesn't know where 
to find help in L. A., or gang mem- 
bers in Harlem and the Bronx who 
have had enough of fighting and 
dying for a few blocks of crum- 
bling and decaying slum. 

How's she doing it? By redeem-

cake mixes, ce*reals), and giving 
these few cents from each coupon

has been doing this with much 
success; over 903? of the former

being collected in this area by the

Not Bob "Zimmerman" but 
Dylan Thomas, the contemporary 
poet! Dylan is currently playing at 
the Mercer O'Casey Theatre, 240 
Mercer Street, New York City. 

Dylan is the story of that famous 
man s tragic life. We followed him 
from his early writings in Wales 
and his marital problems with Cait- 
lin, played by Rue McClanahan, 
through his tours of the United 
States and his ultimate suicide. The 
action was a series of tragic and 
comic episodes involving Dylan's 
idiosvncracies and eccentricities 
whicn made us laugh and weep. 

Dylan is played by Will Hare, 
who gave an outstanding perform- 
ance. He was able to make people 
identify with the problems of 
Dylan and the forces that drove 
him to drink. 

Joanna Miles plays Meg, Dylan's 
friend and eventual mistress. She 
is seen as his contact with reality 
and happiness. In this reporters 
opinion, this actress will go places 
in the theatre. Her performance 
surpassed Will Hare's because of 
her ability to portray waimth. She 
is a great asset to an already superb 

The theatre itself adds to the 
play. The O'Casey Theatre is one 
of five under a single roof, and the 
play is produced in the round, so 
the audience is almost in the mid- 
dle of the action. Also, the audito- 
rium is small, seating around 300, 
which adds to the enjoyment of the 
good acting. 

We urge anyone who is going to 
be in the city in the near future to 
call 673-3937 and make reserva- 
tions. In our opinion, this is one of 
the best productions in New York 
at this time and is well worth the 
trip and expense.

In The Dark Of 
The Night 

Once again vandalism has 
scarred the face of Delaware Val- 
ley College. The most recent con- 
temptuous incident took its toll on 
Dr. Blumingfield of the Plant Sci- 
ence Department. Under the cloak 
of darkness some greedy thieves 
and vandals dismantled and stole 
the plastic greenhouse which was 
recently constructed in front of the 
Horticulture Building. Why did 
this incident happen here at Dela- 
ware Valley College? In every so- 
ciety we find an element of cruel, 
selfish, and ignorant individuals 
who are interested only in destroy- 
ing the achievements of others. It 
seems even here at Delaware Val- 
ley College we feel the wrath of 
these treacherous individuals. What 
can be done to stop these acts of 
corrupt vandalism? Only through 
the efforts of people can we again 
have peace and tranquility here at 
Delaware Valley College. Anyone 
having knowledge of this incident, 
please contact the proper authori- 
ties. Only through your efforts can 
further vandalism be avoided.

Flower Show 



The Flower Show Committee 
would like to thank publicly the 
many people who contributed to 
the overwhelming success of the 
Flower Show. The numerous com- 
pliments we received coupled with 
hundreds of ooh's and ah's served 
as ample evidence that the show 
was indeed a tremendous smash 

Special thanks go to Mr. Frank 
Grau for his many unselfish con- 
tributions and invaluable advice. 
We also send special thanks to Mr. 
Sauers and Mr. Nelson, without 
whose cooperation the show would 
have been impossible. And last, but 
certainly never least, we sincerely 
thank all those who actively par- 
ticipated in the Flower Show. 
These are the people who really 
made the show a smash. We cer- 
tainly look forward to these active 
interests next year, and many years 
to come. 

We would also like to take this 
opportunity to congratulate Paul 
L. Blanc. Paul, a senior at D.V.C., 
wOn the show sweepstakes, best ar- 
rangement in show, as well as nu- 
merous individual awards. Its the 
interest of students like Paul which 
make D.V.C. the kind of school it

The Spring 


That Wasn't 

Well people, now that Spring 
Weekend is done with, did you all 
enjoy it? I surely didn't. What hap- 
pened to the great concert which 
was so long in planning? What 
happened to the variety show 
which would have been a good 

Do you realize that each and 
everyone of you paid for our non- 
existent Spring Weekend? Why do 
you all sit back in your chairs on 
your fat rears and let go on what 
is going on? You people are being 
taken advantage of and you don't 
even know it. Or worse, maybe 
you do know it and you don't care. 
Not that I like to unoury the dead, 
but how many of you did anything 
iibout our Fall Outdoor Concert, 
which turned out to be another 
booming D. V. C. success.? One 
would figure after a loss of Four 
Thousand of your dollars, you 
would do something to stop your- 
self from being robbed. It is bad 
enough that the school tuition fee 
is high, but to take the money and 
toss it away is a waste. Each dollar 

you put into the school activity 
fund is met with an equal dollar 
from the Administration. Did you 
all enjoy the activities to which this 
money was put towards? Don't you 
all realize that because you all go 
home on weekends, the school isn't 
given the opportunity to offer you 
a decent mixer, movie or any form 
of weekend entertainment? Don't 
you all realize that it is your fault 
that this school is a social flop, 
catering to only the limited minor- 
ity of poor unfortunates who are 
stuck here on the weekends. 

Because the school has "nothing" 
to offer, you all go home and be- 
cause of the fact that you all go 
home the school offers nothing in 
return. It is a vicious cycle! We 
must stop this ridiculous waste. If 
you dont like it don't grumble to 
your roommate; get yourself and 
your friends over to a Student Gov- 
ernment meeting and let these peo- 
ple know what you think. Don't let 
yourself be pushed around like 
flowers in a strong wind, or herded 
like sheep in a pasture. Get out and 
express yourself!

A swim in the muck? 




This afternoon, Ken Bucholz, 
our Student Government Secretary, 
asked me to do my part in trying to 
make D.V.C. a better school. In 
essence he told me to get off my 
can, stop talking and do something. 

Our college belongs to us, the 
students. Whatever good or bad 
comes forth from it is our doing. 
If you expect a change in policy to 
come about, it is up to you to back 
your representatives and Student 
Government. You can't expect the 
administration to pass policies that 
don't have the backing of the stu- 
dent body. 

As a member of the class of 1975, 
I see we are going to be trapped by 
the same pitfall as previous classes 
have. We are going to complain 
about conditions and policies, but 
We aren't going to do anything to 
change them. If you don't want to 
help D.V.C, you don't have to. 
However, if you, like me, want to 
see D.V.C. grow and improve, let 
your voice be heard by the Student 
Government NOW!, before it's too

Many students, especially com- 
muters, complain about a lack of 
knowledge concerning the happen- 
ings on D.V.C. campus. There is a 

A weekly newspaper would more 
than adequately fulfill the needs 
of the students' minds. It would 
tell them when and where club 
meetings are being held or what 
movie is playing next week. Sports, 
as one of the big activities on this 
campus, would have their scores 
for yesterday's game and who 
scored it recorded in this weekly 
newspaper. The Student Govern- 
ment minutes could occupy space 
with useful information. Pictures 
could arouse the visual sense and 
possibly give a more accurate de- 

The weekly newspaper would be 
a legal place for students to express 
ideas. As time changes so does the 
student and his ideas; here the best 
constructive ideas pertaining to the 
student would be expressed. As the 
students begin to think alike, they 
will act alike and therefore they 
will have constructed unity among 
its members. The weekly newspa- 
per would be a source of unity.

New University 

Emphasis On 


Scholars University, a graduate 
institute offering the Ph.D., Ed.D. 
and M.A. degrees in 25 areas of 
Summer On-Campus work plus In- 
dependent Study Off-Campus, an- 
nounces its first On-Campus class- 
es will be held beginning this July 
3, at its campus in the State of 

In announcing the inauguration 
of the new university, Dr. F. R. 
Serlin, president, stated: "Todays 
student is increasingly unwilling to 
sit in a classroom when he feels 
that he can learn as much working 
independently in fewer hours than 
he would spend attending class lec- 

"Today's student doesn't feel he 
has time to postpone his work ex- 
perience yet another year or two or 
three while acquiring his Master's 
or Doctoral degree — hence the bur- 
geoning of universities with min- 
imal On - Campus - residency pro- 

"He wants to learn, but he wants 
to learn only what is meaningful to 
him . . . hence an Independent 
Study program that can involve 
him in studying areas meaningful 
to him. 

"And he is a more mature in- 
ch vidual than his counterpart of a 
decade or so ago. Hence the mush- 
rooming of programs of study 
predicated upon the conviction that 
the student will discipline himself, 
if an academic program is devised 
that is meaningful to him." 

The Scholars University program 
is by no means without structure, 

Dr. Serlin emphasized. The pro- 
gram requires 16 residency credits 
summers On-Campus for the M.A. 
degree, and 24 credits for the Ed.D. 
and Ph.D. The balance of the 
coursework is completed Off- 
Campus, during the Fall and 
Spring semesters, under faculty ad- 
visement. "Yet the emphasis re- 
mains on an amalgamation of the 
student's particular interests and 
the faculty advisor's help in fulfill- 
ing a total program of study in the 
area of specialization." 

In answer to the question of the 
standing of 'innovation' in higher 
education, Dr. Serlin stated: "The 
new trend in education is innova- 
tion. Scholars University joins an 
impressive number of 'establish- 
ment* institutions of higher learn- 
ing which give students the op- 
portunities of programs of individ- 
ualized off - campus independent 
study: Syracuse University, the 
State University of New York, Eng- 
land's Open University, The Uni- 
versity Without Walls — which in- 
cludes some twenty prestigious 
universities across the country . . . 
as well as a significant number of 
institutions of higher learning 
established in order to offer a new 
type of educational experience — 
these are but a few of the colleges 
and universities that increasingly 
recognize that today's student 
doesn't have the time — or won't 
take the time — to sit in a class- 
room. The student — and adminis- 
tration — is increasingly accepting 
the reality that the classroom offers 
only a portion of the tools which 
the student can use to truly edu- 
cate himself."

ars University's program may be 
obtained by writing C. K. Fein, 
Dean of Admissions, Esvier Hall,

Today while pondering over my 
present state or insanity I came 
upon Mr. Toil, and I asked him if 
there was any chance in recovering 
from my eight months of inactive- 
ness and he bellowed these famous 
lines, "I have but one life to give 
for my D.V.C., wasteland and that 
is labor, man, pure rot-gut sweat, 
and labor. Let me say one thing, 
I sure ain't getting my eight 
months of screwed up blues for 
nothing". Well, our Mr. Toil sure- 
ly gave us D.V.C. pickers a lot 
for the asking and he probably will 
throw some more derogatory state- 
ments in our eyes unless we, first 
stop that beany old codger right 
dead smack in his path of destruc- 
tion. Secondly we must recondition 
our troops and send out aid to our 
minority clans with a firm purpose 
of amendment. Third and finally, 
we should seek for mindful solu- 
tions in sweeping the dust of The 
Wasteland from our brow. 

Well, my children, what is it? Be 
us dust peddlers or be us white 
knights in shining armor? 

At The 

Just as the mixers are getting a 
little bit better a certain student 
regularly shows up in his state of 
mind and tries to dance without 
falling over. He is not hard to pick 
out since he wears the same outfit 
with that wierd hat and always 
looking like a farmer out on the 
town. If the mixers are to prove 
that DVC is a swinging place why 
do we need a visual attraction on 
the dance floor, one who, without 
regard to gender, butts, pushes and 
cuts his way in between the danc- 
ers in order to do his funny little 
act. He tries to get laughs with 
his actions but he only adds to the 
wrong kind of image for DVC. The 
question is why, with Student Gov- 
ernment members at the doors and 
faculty at the mixers, is he allowed 
to come in all the time when he 
looks and smells like he has had 
one too many 'Mountain Dews?'

Dear Sir: 

After reading the personal criti- 
cism "Ssshhh ..." in your last pub- 
lication, I felt that as a concerned 
student I must present a rebuttal. 

The writer of the article talks 
about "having respect for fellow 
students and classmates in the 
library," and condemns us students 
by adding, "if not anywhere else, 
as is usually the rule." In regard to 
this statement I feel he is correct 
ONLY in condemning students at 
D.V.C. of not having respect and 
courtesy for anyone else; present 
company included, and I'm almost 
certain in including the writer of 
the article, as well as our librarians. 
But I shall elaborate on only this 
problem of respect and courtesy as 
it pertains to the library. 

True, many students migrate 
from their rooms to the library be- 
fore a major exam to study, but 
also to do some group studying 
there with other students taking 
the exam. Talking does go on (if 
not first caught by eagle-eyed li- 
brarian), but it is about serious, 
pertinent subject matter, not 
"lounge-type talk," Mrs. Librarian 
and Mr. Joe Ram Writer. Besides, 
who ever thought of studying in a 
lounge? If the television is on, or 
people are sitting around socializ- 
ing, and you and the people you 
are studying with ask if they would 
please keep their television or so- 
cializing a little more quiet, they 
get angry at you for wanting to 
turn their lounge into a LIBRARY, 
of all things!! 

So, where do these people want- 
ing to study together gor To the 

As stated in the article, the larg- 
est reason for noise in the library is 
"the coeds." Again an example of 
inconsideration of the writer and 
his supporters. Why? 

1 ) Where else can the coeds go? 
They aren't allowed in the dorm 
lounges before freshmen exam time 
(11:00 a.m.). Regardless of how 
hard Mrs. Porter and the girls work 
together, there just isn't enough 
room to accommodate 40 girls in 
two rooms with books and papers 
distributed throughout. 

2) The male students, after 
wanting to have girls around, are 
already complaining about a little 
thing like that. 

3) And it is a little thing. Coeds 
can't socialize in the library even 
if they want. Why? 

a) The overly efficient librarians 
have them "tailed" upon entrance. 

b) They demand silence at the 
first sentence, phrase, word, or 
sound they may hear. And if the 
librarian fails to reprimand the 
coed while the "felony" is being 

Frankly Its 
Delightful ! ! 

Yes? No? Maybe? 


committed, she may wait until she 
sees the coed again. Then she will 
approach the coed, make the 
charge, state the coed's rights (if 
she has any left) and pronounce 
the sentence. (Even organized 
crime is more tactful. ) Or, as in my 
case, the librarian will accuse you 
of making noise, like when I was 
the only person in the entire wing 
at the time! (I wanted to tell my 
godfather.) She will deliver an 
ultimatum and embarrass you in 
front of your friends. In the mean- 
time, after she is finished, you re- 
main seated silently — red from the 
neck up. However it's difficult to 
resume studying because the li- 
brarians are giving a synopsis of 
yesterday's episode of "The Secret 

So as you can see, it is "not espe- 
cially coeds," Mr. Editor. Our li- 
brarians are too well trained and 
extremely efficient to condone such 
behavior from coeds. 

I've elaborated on the problem 
of consideration pertaining to the

D.V.C. Coed 
Visits Ursinus 

by Barb Driesens 

On March 1, Carol Finnie at- 
tended a seminar of the American 
Association of University Women 
held at Ursinus College. To quote 
Carol, "Nine panelists from differ- 
ent colleges attended, including 
guests from Spring Garden Insti- 
tute, West Chester, Montgomery 
County Community College, and 
Delaware Valley." 

The panelists gave short speeches 
about their respective campuses. 
These talks mentioned the campus 
acreage, enrollment, campus social 
life, and drug usage. The speeches 
were followed by a brief question 
and answer period, after which re- 
freshments were served. 

The Delaware Valley College 
Dairy Society met twice during 
March for business meetings and a 
speaker. At the March 7 meeting 
new officers for the coming year 
were elected as follows: Marvin 
Lowensteiner, president; Tom Mc- 
Williams, vice president; John 
Grice, secretary; Bob McCoy, treas- 
urer; Dave Crooke, publications; 
and John Bray, intramurals. Fresh- 
men drew names for animals for 
the show on A Day and trophies 
for championships were discussed. 

Dr. McCaffree reported that 30 
members had signed up for ani- 
mals by the March 21 meeting. 
Trophies were again considered 
with the Holstein Brown Swiss, 
and Ayrshire breeds represented. 
The trophies will be donated by 
the respective associations and will 
remain at the school to be pre- 
sented each year. 

The high point of the meeting 
was a presentation by Mrs. Hope 
Scott, owner of Ardossan Ayrshire 
Farm, Villanova, Pa. Mrs. Scott 
gave a short description of her ex- 
periences with cattle and also in 
competitive riding and judging of 
horses. A discussion followed with 
questions coming from club mem- 
bers and members of the Equine 
Club who joined m for the speaker. 
Ardrossan Farm is an 800-acre es- 
tate with 150 milking cows. The 
herd was started in 1910 by Mrs. 
Scott's father. Colonel Robert L. 
Montgomery, who was very pro- 
gressive in both breeding and 
health practices.

Some of my favorite browns have 
turned out to be green. Some of my 
favorite blues have turned out to 
be purple. And some of my favorite 
yellows have turned out to be red. 
Which just goes to show that you 
can't trust anyone under 20-20 vis- 

I am color blind. My pants don't 
match my shirts, my sweaters don't 
match my ties, my scarves don't 
match my coats, my pajamas don't 
match my bed linen, and my socks 
are the product of a broken home. 

I am a member of a forgotten, 
silent minority group, discriminat- 
ed against because we pledge al- 
legiance to a flag that is yellow, 
white and purple; because as chil- 
dren we followed the orange brick 
road; and because to us Red China 
is just another pretty shade of gold. 

Recently Irving, a color-blind 
friend of mine, and I tried to drive 
down to the state capitol to lobby 
for legislative charges for our 
myopic minority group. Irving car- 
ried a beige placard (pink) that 
read "Black and White are Beauti- 
ful." We got in my little yellow 
car (red), and drove on until we 
approached a flashing light over 
a sign that read: "Proceed care- 
fully on flashing amber, stop on 
flashing red." 

"What's amber?" Irving asked 
as we drove toward the light. 

"Sort of a cross between green 
and blue — like your sweater," I 
said, pointing to his mauve swea- 

"My sweater's not amber," he 
said. "It's coral — like your jacket." 

"My jacket just happens to be 
aqua-marine," I said. 

"Look," Irving said, "Are we 
gonna stop at this light or aren't 

"Let's go through it. It's a defin- 
ite amber." 

"No — a definite green. Let's go 
through it. And we won't bother 
proceeding with caution. We'll 
show 'em. ' 

"The sign doesn't say anything 
about green — just red and amber." 

"They're trying to mess us up, to 
test whether or not we're color 
blind," he said with just the slight- 
est hint of paranoia. So we went 
dashing through the flashing light 
until a police car with a flashing 
orange light (red) stopped us. I 
turned azure (green) and Irving 
turned beet avocado (red) and 
the policeman turned us in for in- 
decent exposure. It seems that we 
were stopping traffic because our 
clothes were clashing so we never 
made it down to the legislature. 

Rut there are other handicaps. 
I've had to drop out of school three 
times now because I couldn't tell 
which part of the triplicate forms 
to turn in or keep. My apartment 
clashes with the others in trie build- 
ing and the tenants' union is trying 


to get me either evicted or married 
to an interior decorator. I thought 
the TV I picked up at the Good- 
will for $22 was color until I in- 
vited twenty people over to watch 
the Wizard of Oz. When we got 
to Oz it was just like Kansas and 
everybody walked out. According 
to a sign on the stadium gate, I 
am not welcome at football games 
because I always root for the Pur- 
ples and Yellows (the Blues and 
the Greens) rather than our team, 
the Reds and the Browns (the 
Oranges and the Greens). 

But, as they say, the grass is al- 
ways browner . . . there are some 
advantages to being color blind. 
The army refuses to accept me 
because, once in combat, they 
claimed I couldn't tell the enemy 
from our own men (although I'm 
told that hasn't stopped many of 
our boys over there with normal 
vision). And I am constantly being 
praised by friends and family for 
my acceptance of people with di- 
ferent skin color. But, as I always 
tell them, "You can thank my par- 
ents that I know no color barriers. 
I was always brought up to think 
that people with purple skin have 
as many rights as we chartreuses." 

And then there's Mazie, the 
lovely girl who comes over to sort 
my socks once a week. 

"You know, Mitz," she said, sort- 
ing. "I've never met anyone with 
so many socks — hundreds of them. 
You got bad feet or something?" 

"No, Mazie," I said looking into 
her big purple eyes. "It's just that 
I've got a real thing for orange- 
haired girls." 
Power to the Purple.

by Rick Mitz 

Not since the mail-order bride 
business have we been able to buy 
so much without ever moving. We 
can get anything via Ma Bell these 
days. We can register for college, 
feed a feast to 17 hungries, have 
our rugs cleaned, have our cats 
spayed, furnish our sunrooms and 
even visit our mothers — all by let- 
ting your fingers do the walking 
and your mouth do the talking. 
And if you can't do that, you just 
call a number and they'll send out 
someone who can. 

Last Saturday, I went downtown 
to a large department store and 
found that the place was more bar- 
ren that Palm Springs in July. I 
told the manager I was sorry that 
business was so bad. 

"Bad!" he bayed. "Business has 
never been better. We've never 
sold more. It's just that everybody's 
ordering everything over the 

He led me to a room crowded 
with hundreds of ladies wearing 
telephone headsets over their blue 
hair and cauliflower ears. It looked 
like a joint convention of the 
League of Women Voters, Hadas- 
sah and the DAR I walked around 
and listened. 

"Yes, Mrs. Slotnick. We'll send 
out your artificial resuscitator this 
afternoon. Will someone be home 
to accept delivery?" 

"I'm sorry, Ma'm, but we have 
a $5 minimum purchase on deliv- 
eries. Now if you add a loaf of 
bread and some cheese to your 
salami . . ." 

Then the manager took me to 
the fortress in the next room where 
the delivery boys were lined up 

against the wall waiting for their 

"Jimmy Slocum!" the manager 

"Yes, Sir," he said, clicking his 
heels together and stepping for- 
ward for his mission. 

"Slocum, scoot up to lingerie and 
get two 36 Cross- Your-Hearts for 
Mrs. Scott on 1989 Lilac Lane, 

"Yes, Sir!" he clicked, and off he 
went to lingerie. 

"What about the rest of the 
store," I asked the manager. "No- 
body's here." 

"We just keep the store open for 
tax purposes," he explains. "It looks 
good. I mean, we aren't in the mail 
order business." 

"I'm looking for a pair of jockey 
shorts," I whispered. "Where can 
I find someone to help me?" 

He told me to wait and called 
out pretty Miss Smythe from the 
phone room. 

"Sir," Miss Smythe said. "May I 
help you?" 

"Yeah. I'd like a pair of, um, 
jockey shorts." 

"On," she said, looking befud- 
dled. "Well, let me see . . . our 
horseback riding attire is on sixth 
floor . . ." 

"No, no, no," I said. "Jockey 
shorts . . . underpants. Where's 
your men's underwear depart- 

"Gee ... I don't know," she said 
and then smiled. "Why don't you 
trot across the street to the pay 
phone and call me and I can have 
them delivered to you there. I'm 
not sure how to do it any other 
way. You can charge it." 

"I don't have a charge account 
here. I wanted to pay cash." 

"Cash? Oh, you mean like 
money." She beamed. 

"Yes. Sort of like money." 

"This is highly irregular. I don't 
think we deal in cash here." She 
paused. Say, why don't you just 
shoplift the underwear? Our insur- 
ance will cover it." 

"Listen, Miss Smythe. Where can 
I open a charge account?" 

"At the phone booth across the 

"Thanks, Miss Smythe," I said, 
and began to walk away. "Say, can 
you tell me where the restroom 

"Gee," she said. "You can have 
that delivered, too. And charge it, 
of course." 

I thanked pretty young Miss 
Smythe again and walked across 
the street. There was a line 100 feet 
long waiting to get into the phone 
booth. I overheard a lady talking 
on the phone. 

"Could you send over a ham on 
rye — lay low on the mayo — with 
garnish and a pickle? Just charge 
it to my account. I'm the lady in 
the chartreuse dress." 

Finally, it was my turn. "Could 
you please send over two pairs of 
jockey shorts, size 32. I'm the one 
with the worn out underwear on. 
And — oh, yes — could you also send 
over Miss Smythe, about a size 6, 
I think." 

I now do all my shopping by

Chess is a game of strategy which is 
formulated from the logical anticipation 
of your opponent's future moves. You 
should play the game safely. By this I 
mean that you should never under-esti- 
mate your opponent by committing your- 
self to a series of moves then hoping he 
will not see their purpose. This is wrong 
and it is very often highly costly; it will 
probably result in the loss of the match. 

The opening, in my opinion, is the 
most crucial part of the match. If you 
are fortunate enough to have white, you 
start with a half-move advantage and 
therefore you should play primarily of- 
fensively. In the first five to ten moves 
you should try to move or develop a 
maximum number of pieces while moving 
each one a minimal number of times. In 
doing this you should build a complex 
which protects itself but also has maxi- 
mum control over the four center squares 
of the board. If you accomplish this, you 
have essentially gained control of the 
board and an upper hand in the game. 
Your strategy from here on would be to 
gain further control and try to force 
your opponent to waste moves. 

If you have black, your main objec- 
tive is to mount some sort of offensive 
by forcing white to waste a move and 
lose the initiative. You could do this by 
developing a complex similar to white's, 
again developing as many pieces as pos- 
sible with a minimum amount of moves, 
and countering whites control over the 
four center squares. From here your 
strategy is to merely over-power white 
and drive him back or force him to fight. 
This is sometimes very difficult unless 
you castle early and employ your rooks 
a backers of this power drive. For this 
purpose I find it better to castle Queen's 
side to immediately bring the rook to 
one of the center columns.

Lake Archer 
Its Past 


Part II 

by Peter D. Ference 

The pond itself is a little bit less 
than an acre in area covering 
43,000 sq. ft. At its shallowest end 
it is about 3 feet or so in depth and 
its deepest is 7 feet. This was the 
original planned depths. Of course 
over the years some silting has oc- 
curred bringing up the bottom. 

The main problem that still re- 
mains is "water." Enough water is 
needed to maintain a flow that will 
sweep debris, such as excess algae, 
pollen, dirt and leaves out through 
the overflow pipe. There are sev- 
eral small springs which feed the 
pond, one of which was metered 
to flow about 2-3 gallons per 
minute. This may not seem much 
but every drop is needed. Runoff 
comes from the Burpee farms and 
all the water that falls on the roof 
of Mandell Science building plus 
the roof water from the new Edu- 
cation Bldg. is channeled into the 
pond. This large collective surface 
area will undoubtedly help. An- 
other pipe has been run trom the 
springnouse which used to store 
milk. Dr. Feldstein has been ex- 
tremely helpful in the area of 
pumping some of the water from 
the wells during the summer when 
there are not many students on 
campus. The whole matter lies in 
having a continuous flow. 

This author brought up the prob- 
lem of leaves and organic matter 
and if it would be possible to 
aerate the pond. Dr. Prundeanu 
said not too much thought was 
given to this because they felt 
there was a simpler solution. If 40 
or 50 students would spend about 
30 minutes 3 or 4 times a year, 
the leaves and other refuse could 
be dealt with quickly and the oxi- 
dation by aeration would then not 
be needed. 

It cannot be stressed enough that 
the students could help a lot in 
keeping the lake clean. Don't throw 
in refuse, rocks, or branches from 
the trees. 

As to plants, there was some dis- 
cussion as to the possibility of put- 
ting in some water lilies and maybe 
stocking the lake with fish. The 
present population would thus have 
to be killed off. Algaecides could be 
used but it was decided to study 
the pond some more. 

I personally commend the pro- 
fessors who took to this conserva- 
tive type of treatment without div- 
ing in without looking, as is some- 
times done. This will save the 
pond, which is considered a great 
asset to the campus biologically 
and aesthetically. I again thank Dr. 
Julian Prundeanu for his help in 
preparing this article.

On the boat, four men clad in 
wet suits, peer intently into the 
murky, flat grey ocean, while be- 
low, a diver fumbles over a hun- 
dred year old shipwreck. 

He scans with his light across the 
ocean floor straining to distinguish 
a shape. 

Suddenly something grabs at his 
leg! It is the hand of Bob Weber, 
signalling Dave Acton to look at 
his booty: three tea cups encrusted 
in barnacles. 

The divers quickly pull out their 
knives to pry tne treasure from the 

That's the way the dive proceed- 
ed, on a brisk 34° Sunday, in April. 

There were four other divers that 
day: Phil Cole, Warren Curtin, 
Dan Daransky, and I. 

The boat we used, was designed 
primarily for finding wrecks. It was 
rigged with several types of depth 
finders and sonar. 

We made dives on two wrecks 
that foundered off Sea Girt, New 
Jersey. They are "The Western 
World" and "The Thistle". 

The once stout wooden beams of 
these majestic schooners are now 
riddled by sand and time. 

Even if the rest of us didn't find 
any artifacts, we still enjoyed the 
sight of numerous starfish, clams 
syphoning the current, swaying red 
polyps, and the adventure of being 
underwater, seeing it all first hand. 

Aggies Now 4-3 

by Ed Biddle 

Coach John Silan's Aggies posted 
their fourth win of the year at Al- 
lentown by trouncing the "Mules" 
of Muhlenberg by a (10-1) count 
on May 1. It was the biggest run- 
producing afternoon for the Aggies 
this year as Muhlenberg dropped 
to a 5-4 record. 

A fine team effort highlighted by 
the batting and pitching of junior 
Bob Polinsky proved too much for 
the "Mules". Polinsky now (3-2) 
executed his 5th complete game 
while collecting 3 hits on 4 trips to 
the dish. 

The Aggies have 3 games re- 
maining: a single encounter host- 
ing Lincoln University on May 4 
and a double-header at Juniata on 
May 6.

Delaware Valley 

by Drew Kotalic 

After an opening day win over 
Drew University, 8-1, and conquest 
of Wilkes, 8-4, the Aggie baseball 
team was in gear. Powered by 
home runs against Drew by Cap- 
tain Bricciarelli and Remo, Kevin 
Foster picked up his first win in 
relief. In a joint effort with Wilkes, 
Bob Polinsky rolled to his first vic- 
tory of the 72 campaign. 

Delaware Valley lost a heart- 
breaker to Moravian, 1-0. Polinsky 
lost out in the bid giving up two 
hits; only one hit reached the out- 
field; he also complimented this 
performance with 13 strikeouts. 

Elizabethtown College cooled 
the Aggies' attack with a 5-2 deci- 
sion. Dave Ferenchick had two 
hits, one a home run, and Polinsky 
fanned 12. 

Bob Polinsky and Company put 
forth an attack to subdue last 
year's MAC champs, Upsula, 5-2. 
Andy Timko highlightea the con- 
test with a triple, coupled with a 
strong performance by Polinsky 
with 11 strikeouts. 

Ursinus stopped the Aggies, 7-6. 
Wayne Remo absorbed the loss. 
The Aggies post a 3-3 log thus far. 

Drew's Views 

by Drew Kotalic 
As the baseball season continues 
here at Delaware Valley, Coach 
John Silan has to draw a few con- 
clusions. His team has potential, 
and it likes to win. 

After an excellent game played 
against defending MAC champion, 
Upsala, Coach Silan has to say Bob 
Polinsky is major league material. 
He has been the work horse for the 
Aggies this year. His statistics are 
very impressive. In 36 2/3 innings 
pitched, he has 51 strikeouts, and 
an earned run average of .963. In 
the batting statistics, Kevin Foster 
is leading that category with a bat- 
ting average of .467, followed by 
Gerard Moroz, .385, Dave Feren- 
chick, .316, and Wayne Remo, .294. 

Also making Coach Silan's life a 
little more comfortable has been 
Thorn Debrowski's switch from 
short stop to center field.

at nearly 500 locations throughout 
the United States, ETS said. 

Results of the National Teacher 
Examinations are used by many large 
school districts as one of the several 
factors in the selection of new 
teachers and by several states for 
certification or licensing of teachers. 

On each full day of testing, 

prospective teachers may take tho 

Common examinations whi^n measure 

their professional preparation and general educational background and a 

Teaching Area Examination which measures their mastery of the subject 

t ey expect to teach. 

Prospective teachers should contact the school systems in which they seek 
employment, or their colleges, for specific advice on which examinations 
to take and on wnich dates they should be taken. 

The Bulletin of Information for Candidates contains a list of test 
centers, and information about the examinations, as well as a registration

against Juniata College. It was a disappointing game. Juniata was improved 
over last season and we looked sloppy in losing 24 to 14. 

Our offense did not mount any scoring threats in the first half. Our line 
did not open any holes for Richie Glenn, Floyd Aderfer and John Berne tske. 
They can not be expected to run without blocks. Running the middle waa 
hopeless and only occasionally did we get the sweep, our favorite running 
play, to work. Berne tske ran a few draw plays and a sweep for good 
yardage. He looks like a good running mate for Richie Glenn. 

Poor pass blocking also helped Jim Foote throw three interceptions and 
have an off afternoon with only 11 completions in 30 attempts. 

Juniata* 8 defense not only pulled down two Foote passes and set up a touch- 
down pass off one, but they set up another touchdown when they forced Glenn 
to fusible when hit in the backfield. 

By half time the score was 21 to 0. 

Just like last year- -when we got warmed up we played good ball. Our defense 
forced two fumbles in a row, and after the second fumble we moved the ball 
26 yards to score. With the two-point play we were behind 21-8. 

A bit later our defense held Juniata on their own three yard line where Jim, 
Foote put them (with a great punt). When they punted we got the ball on 
their 54 and seven plays later we scored to make it a game at 21-14. By 
the *tj | we lack an extra point kicker which is why we had to settle for 

six points. , 

A* FAfT AS WE SCORED, JUNIATA SCORED. On a trap up the middle, MacXeil 
qwUagod to run 49 yards to our 22. Our defense held but Juniata managed 
a fiald goal and the score held up- -24- 14. 

The rest of the afternoon was for the defenses; nobody moved the ball! 

Overall, the game was 6 loppy. Juniata lost three fumbles and we gave up 
three interceptions and one fumble. 

Juniata's quarterback Shope showed that he's got an arm and even under a 
good pass rush he managed two touchdown passes. I'ss mention here that our 
defensive backfield looked as if they were on vacation. Juniata's receivers 
were open all day, and if it hadn't been for our defensive line, Shope 
would have had more than two T.D.s. 

A summary of D.V.C.'s afternoon is a mixture of promises and mistakes.

By the game's end we were :":?V/e po'o'. favorites] *. T itl\ en overpowering ground game <# 

and an aggressive defence kk w>r our home urentr 2.5-21.

Aggie offense ran 91 plays to KoraviAf. 1 ? 6u and raantged 14 first downs to our 
opponents' 11. 

Floyd Aderfer was outstanding with 13 carries for 1.6? y*rda. On* run ;*enr 8C yards

was balanced by G'enn's 21 carries zor 17. yards arvl a tcunhiowa a,id Benweejia-'a 46

Our dffonsive line was OUCStBndlng and cnaued holes for o*ir back» all day in addi-

Three years ago, A ^ started out as c. suggestion at an A.'..^. meeting. I was a pledge 
at the tine and had done similar work at hone, and the fraternity was asking for pledge 
projects; so I volunteered to be chairman for A .^. o obtained a room in the Alumni 
• louse, and the brothers fi:;ed it up to look a little better than it had. The first year 
there, we operated with a staff of about 15 and were on the air with hor.s built equipment 
from 7:30 pn to 11 J0C pm. 

The second year, with the halp of a loan of $171 

from the adninistratidn, A. u purchased 
two new transmitters and three miles of wire and hooked everything up. It did work but 
was plaqued with problems the whole year. This year with a gift of $5c; from the admin- 
istration arid a bigger room to use, A.. I is back again, not without problems however. 
The cartridges we are using for the turntables do not work the way they should resulting 
in inferior quality sound and frequently no sound at all. This I hope to resolve shortly. 
The squirrels have also played a major role in the station's headaches. They seem to 
think that the wires which carry our audio signal have been erected for their use between 
trees. Unfortunately, the /ires are not strong enough to support their weight, and twice 
I have awakened to the sound of silence and found a /ire hanging somewhere. This creates 
internal hemorrhage in our amplifier and we have, so far, only burned one up. 

vti" A10 staff are about 55 people, so, hopefully, this year /ill be our best. .'e are 
trying a lot of different ideas, and if anybody else has any, I would appreciate them. 

This year we hope to bring you live away basketball games, music to the cafeteria and 
student center. It should be a good year.

The Board of Trustees, the -resident, and the Chemistry Faculty of Delaware Valley 
Co J lege are pleased to announce that the College lias been listed among the colleges 
approved by the American Chemical Society. 

The American Chemical Society recognition is an important chapter in the history of 
the Chemistry Department at Delaware VaPey College which first offered the Chemistry 
degree program in 1951. -rofessor Lionel Adelson, Chairman of the Division of Science, 
and Dr. Robert ~rr, Chariman of the Chemistry Department, expanded on the importance of 
this accreditation. 


Irofessor Adelson explained that rtudents who have majored in Chemistry and who 
fulfilled the requirements for a professional chemical education as adopted by the 
Society are eligible for admission as members of the Society following graduation,, and . 
after two years of active participation in the field of chemistry. 

Dr. Crr pointed out that statistics have bean shown that employment opportunities are 
enhanced for students who have graduated from 6n American Cher.ica!. Society accredited 
department and who have bean certified by the Chemistry Department Chairman to the 
American Chemical Society. ? his sane opportunity holds true for candidates :;ho pursue 
graduate :/ork for advanced degrees in chemistry. 

Dr. err concluded that the accrediation is the result of the efforts of the Chem Depart- 
ment working closely with the College Administration since the summer of 1563 to meet the 
high standards of the American Chemical Society. Accreditation is based on the facili- 
ties available for the chemistry program including laboratory and lecture space, as well 
as instrumentation used for instruction and research. Other criteria considered are the 
number or" faculty member's in the department, their degrees, the curriculum, including 
elective options, chemistry library holdings, and finally the professional careers 
selected by chemistry students once they complete the degree program. 


Cn Thursday, September ?.I, ?: students initiated the first stage of a process • that .may 
change their lives. They investigated the possibility of becoming inmate, or probation^ 
counselors in one of the most progressive correctional systems in, the United Stages. 

rv - , 

The Ducks County Citizens 1 Committee for Corrections and .lahabilitatipn^put^out a. ca.U 
for volunteer counselors to work at the prison. Those-., students attending the infor- 
mative meeting discovered that they will be capable of accomplishing; several goals as 
counselors^ • - :• , , ... , • 

1." Serve their fellow men, 

2. Break away from the daily routine of college life,. 

3. Constructively demonstrate a sense of responsibility and maturity, 

4. Initiate ; a cH&nge in their own life, style by helping other men change their lives. 

As a counselor, one needs only to volunteer t;;o hours per .;eek with an inmate or pro- 
bationer, -"'r'ior to' counseling, each prospective, volunteer riust attend a training week- 
end where he or she 7 earns to utilize the methodol.ogy of an inmate counselor. . ." 

The next training session will be held ^ctober 5, 7, and 3 in the Jury ...ounge of the 
Court 'louse. For further information about counseling, contact the Volunteer's office 
at 343-532o, or Dave Acton '73, 345-1133* •

The campus lias again broken ftfom its summer dormancy, and the carrpus clubs are again 
activated. A! 1 students, whether rookies or veterans, are i urged to seek out. and join 
at least one 1 club, ''."'here are clubs representing nost majors, as well as many Interest 
clubs. AM club .Meetings ari posted and new members ara always encouraged to participate. 
The only requirement necessary to join most clubs is a reasonable amount of interest. 

The S/.V C U3 'is planning a busy schedule this year. . ? ee^end trips to areas in Vermont 
and * eV/^brk are piahnetl, as is a possible return tripi t a Europe. Beginners and even 
non-Skiers are encouraged to join. * Instruction will fra given by such noted instructors 
as Jean Claude Karca/ski and other experienced teachers.

\ T -ATE'.L, a man, if he is wise, discovers that life is a mi-cture of good 
days: and bad, victory and defeat, give and take. ~le learns that it doesn't 
pay to. be too sensitive a soul, that he should let sone things 30 over his head 
Like water off a due's bach. la learns that all men have burnt toast for break- 
fast now and then, and that he shouldn't take the other fellow's grouch too 
seriously. Ud learns that carrying a chip on his shoulder is the easiest /ay to 
get in a fight. He learns that the quickest way to become unpopular is to carry 
tales and gossip about others. 

He learns that buck-passing always turns out to be a boomerang and that it never 
pays. He comes to realize that the business could run along perfectly well 
without him. T Ie learns that it doesn't matter so much who gets the credit so long 
as the business benefits. lie learns that even the janitor is human and that it does 
no harm to smile and say "Good Horning" even if it is raining. 

Me learns that most of the other fellows are as ambitious as he is, that they 
have brains as good or better, and that hard workn not cleverness is the secret 
of success. lie learns to sympathize with the Freshnan coning into school, be- 
cause he remembers how bewildered he /as when he first started out. Me learns not 
to worry when he bums out an e*:am, because experience has shown that if he gives 
his best, his average will break pretty well. 

He learns that no ran ever got to first base alone and that it is only through 
cooperative effort that we move on to better things. 'la learns that professors 
are not monsters, trying to bust your rocks, but they are usually pretty good 
fellows who have succeeded through hard ;ork and who want to help you. T Ie learns 
that folks are not any harder to get along with in one place than another, and that 
the "gatting along" depends about 93% on his own betiavior.

~ight turnovers and a well-called offensive game helped bring a victory to our 
overpowering football team. The victims this week were the uules of Muhlenburg; 
the score was 35-1^. 

liuhlenburg scored first on a 30-yard pass play that came four plays after a great 
punt return that put the ball 15 yards behind where Jim Foote kicked it. This 
/as the last tine the liules /ould be near scoring until late in the fourth period 
/hen they would block a punt by ..eroy ^attars on our si:;-yard line. 

In between those two scores oor defense and offense both sparkled. 

-ettars recovered a fumbla which set up the tying score by our second team back- 
field when . 2vin Foster ran a two-yard bootleg for our first si;' points. .Uch 
iUdgway and Frad lackman, behind great blocking, put two drives together and 
showed everyone that our freshman backs can run too.

Our second sc^re came on a 2-yard plunge by aderfer, and we weftt in with a

We fumbled the second half kickoff but our defense countered with a recovered 
fumble Cur defence, sputtering, gave up the ball to the Mules on a Richard ...

DAVE CHARRIER, Staff Reporter 

With the beginning of this 1972-73 school year, 
the new Agricultural Building wasn't the only one 
that opened; the new Student Center opened. The 
upperclassmen will remember that the Student Center 
used to be located in Eisner Hall behind the Cafe. 
Now it's located in the center of the campus in 
Segal Hall. Built in 1906, Segal Hall has gone 
through a series of changes, the latest, from 
classrooms and labs to a student center. 

The idea was conceived last April and with only 
one summer to work, the 'center' came to life. In- 
side, the students can find the Student Store in 
the basement which sells school supplies, college 
shirts, records and tapes, and other things for the 
students. Hie store's hours are 11-1 weekdays and 
5-7 (except Friday). Mr. McClelland' s placement 
office and Mr. Hedges' alumni office are also down- 

On the first floor in the main room is the 
lounge with couches, chairs and a T.V. There are 
also tables for studying, and Men' s and Ladies' 
bathrooms. In the side room is the Commuter Mail 
Box where notices and memos are sent to the com- 
muters. A cigarette and four vending machines are 
also in this room. You can buy candy, soda, hot 
drinks, and sandwiches; use the micro-wave oven for 
the sandwiches. A change machine is in there, too. 
A unique addition is the rr£L juke box which keeps 
the center rocking most of the day. In the third 
room is the game room with a variety of game 

There are three small rooms upstairs where RAP, 
scuba club, and other small clubs meet. The rooms 
are big enough to hold 25-30 people. The school's 
radio station, WAFO is also upstairs. 

The hours of the 'Center' are: 

Sunday to Thursday 7AM - 12 midnight 
Friday & Saturday 7AM - 2AM

Farm Policies of Richard II. 
Nixon and George S. McGovern 

KEITH JORDAN, Staff Reporter 

You Agriculture majors who will be voting Nov. 
7 might be interested in the farm policies of the 
two major candidates. Who becomes President may 
well affect your future in agriculture, so farm 
policies should be a major, although of course not 
the only, consideration. 

Mr. Nixon tends to favor big business, so it is 
not surprising to see that he favors agribusiness 
and farm cooperatives rather than the traditional 
family farm. One demonstration of this is that he 
chose Earl But as his secretary of agriculture. 
The nomination of Butz met stiff opposition from 
spokesmen for family, farms for he was assistant 
secretary under and great follower of Ezra Taft 
Benson (the scourge of the family farmer) and later 
a director of the Ralston Purina Company.' A slogan 
attributed to Butz in reference to family farmers 
is 'adopt or perish.' Now he is indentifying him- 
self more with the family farmer. Whether he was 
really changed is rather doubtful, but it is pos- 
sible (you may recall a man by the name of Walter 

Senator McGovern, although known primarily for 
his positions on such things as Vietnam and amnesty, 
is also considered to be a great spokesman for the 
family farmer, at least in his home state of South 
Dakota. If this is any indication, he wins farm 
ballots in that state 2 to 1. McGovern sponsored 
the Family Farm Act of 1972, which is designed to 
keep nonfarm giants from taking over the agricul- 
ture system. McGovern has promised to raise parity 
to 90% whereas Butz has declared that the parity 
concept is outmoded.

200 dollars was lost in Lake Archer. On August 
10, 1972, D.V.C. 's Lake Archer was filled with 
1,000 gallons of fuel oil valued at 20<f a gallon 
by Sinkler Oil Company. The accident has been 
determined a human error; The delivery man had 
never delivered any fuel oil to D.V.C. before and 
filled the drain pipe from the new Ag. Building 
rather than filling the oil tank. 

The spill occured at 10 o'clock in the morning; 
by 12 o'clock the Sinkler Oil Company had their men 
working on the lake and by 3 o'clock specialists 
from Camden, N.J., were correcting the oil spill. 

The first action taken was blocking up the lake 
to prevent the oil from traveling down stream 
causing more damage. Next they placed floatation 
rings around the oil gathered it to the center of 
the lake and pumped it out. Tlie oil that remained 
was removed with sponges. The men from Sinkler Oil 
Company and the specialists worked 24 hours on the 
lake. The Doylestown fire marshall came down to 
guard against any possibility of fire. 

No damage has been done to the wildlife in the 
pond although some adjacent grass was destroyed. 
Authorities say that the turf will grow back. The 
lake still has a slight film around its perimeter, 
but this is of no major problem. The department 
of environmental resources and the department of 
Conservation have corresponded with D.V.C. and 
stated that a satisfactory job was done. 

The Ram would like to compliment Sinkler Oil 
Company for giving every possible effort towards 
doing a proper and efficient job of cleaning up 
lake Archer. 

NEW STUDENT CENTER cont. from pg. I 

Right now it's all kind of bare, but Frank 
Post, who is co-manager with Paul Neslanik, says 
that 'it's just a matter of time for the improve- 
ments'. The Student Government is assisted by the 
Administration in their help. 

Proposed improvements are: drapes, a rug, more 
couches, lounge chairs, a pay phone and studying 
tables. These can be moved out of the way if any 
dances or coffee houses are held. 

What do you think of the 'Center' having the 
first TV on campus? Your answer may be, 'How long 
will it last?', which leads me to an important part 
of this article. 

Although the 'Center' has been open only 3 
weeks, damage is already evident. A tomato stain 
on the wall, a broken chair, and a broken couch 
leg. Students complain about the mess at the end 
of the day, but they don' t say anything to those 
who are making the mess. The 'Center' is there 
for the Students' use and enjoyment, but let's not 
get carried away' Those on the Student Government 
Student Center Committee are Jack Facciolo, Jim 
Lutz and Warren Curtin. They can be contacted for 
any suggestions you may have. 

There is a great deal of potential in the center 
as long as it is taken care of. With combined 
efforts of everyone the Student Center will remain 
an important feature, both physically and socially, 
to this campus and to the students.

Itl-Til Mill CHE ME 

GUY LEIGHTON, Staff Reporter 

Mr. Louis Hegyes was named Director of Alumni 
Affairs this year. Mr. Hegyes has been associated 
with Delaware Valley for many years. After gradu- 
ating from Kennedy High School in Iselin, N.J., he 
entered Del Val majoring in Ornamental Horticul- 
ture. Mr Hegyes was very active in sports and was 
named most valuable runner in both his junior and 
senior years. Mr. Hegyes was captain of the track 
team and sports editor of THE RAM. During his 
senior year he participated in the work-study pro- 
gram by working in the office admissions. 

Following graduation in 1971 Mr. Hegyes joined 
the admissions department full time. Part of his 
work was to do recruiting for Del Val. He visited 
many schools in the North Jersey area for that 

Mr. Hegyes wants to revitalize the alumni 
office. Because of his age, he feels he can be a 
good mediator between students and administration; 
he is also a freshman counselor this year. 

The Alumni Office organizes Homecoming and other 
alumni events. The office also compiles a bi- 
annual publication called the Alumni News Bulletin. 
This magazine contains pictures and articles about 
events at Del Val as well as information about its 

An annual giving campaign is organized by the 
Alumni Office each year. Contributions are needed 
because student fees pay only 56.1% of the Col- 
lege's expenses. The campaign begins in July by 
sending a booklet to 3200 alumni. This booklet 
explains the need lor contributions. last year the 
college received approximately $28,000 in con- 
tributions. Half was contributed by alumni. The 
other half was contributed by large corporations. 
Mr. Hegyes hopes that both alumni and big business 
will contribute more. He especially wants big 
business to contribute more since they have the tax 
advantages of contributing to Del Val, a non-profit 
institution. Mr. Hegyes also thinks Corporations 
should contribute more because they depend on Del 
Val for col lege- trained employees. 

The average alumni contribution has remained 
the same through the years. The overall contri- 
butions have increased because there are more 
alumni every year. Mr. Hegyes hopes the individual 
contribution will also start rising. Each class, 
all the way back to 1909, has a class agent who is 
in (barge ol contributions from his class. The 
most successful agent is Mr. Richard Woodring of 

the class of 1934 who has been able to get 95% of 
his class to contribute. The money that is contri- 
buted either goes towards the 'area of greatest 
need' or the endowment fund. 

Mr. Hegyes' office is located in the lower level 
of Segal Hall; he would be happy to answer any 
questions about alumni or contributions. 


U.S. Senator Hugh Scott (R-Pa. ) called for 
quick passage of a bill strengthening the "enforce- 
ment authority' that prohibits the shooting of 
animals from aircraft. 

Specifically, this legislation authorizes em- 
ployes of the Department of the Interior to arrest 
violators without a warrant when the violation is 
done in their presence. 

"The wanton destruction of wildlife from air- 
craft has led to the near-extinction of the Ameri- 
can eagle in the West,' Senator Scott explained. 
'This problem extends also to the southwest where 
wild mustangs are slaughtered for 'sport* from air- 
craft. I know that the thousands of sportsmen of 
Pennsylvania would not call this horrendous prac- 
tice 'sport',' he added. 

This legislation would amend and strengthen an- 
other bill which made it unlawful for anyone to 
shoot or attempt to shoot any animal from an air- 
craft. 'Hunters and fishermen of Pennsylvania 
have long been strong advocates of conservation, 
not only in the Commonwealth, but nationwide. 
'The extinction of helpless creatures would not be 
condoned in Pennsylvania and must not be allowed no 
continue elsewhere,' the Senate Leader emphasized.

Change Die System 

of Tuition Increases 


KEITH JORDAN, Staff Reporter 

The system of tuition increases used by Deleware 
Valley College should be replaced by a system in 
which the student will know before he applies to 
the college what he will be paying his four years 
here. At present the cost of tuition, room, board, 
etc., which is announced in the college catalog is 
usually not the same as what the cost is by the 
time the student is a freshman here. It is then 
increased again when he is a sophmore, again when 
he is a junior, and again in his senior year. 

I propose that this be changed so that the cost 
announced in the catalog the year an applicant 
applies be the cost of the four years he will be a 
student here. The cost can still be raised the 
next year and this cost will be effective tor the 
next year's applicants. In this way an applicant 
will know in advance what he must pay for each of 
his four years, and may decide on this college 
rather than one in which the cost may increase so 
much that by his senior year he is paying hundreds 
of dollars more than the catalog announced. 

Reduce Pot Penalties-Canada 

(CPS)--The Canadian government is expected 
to reduce penalties for simple possission of 
marijuana later this year. 

Under legislation to be introduced to the 

Canadian parliament in the current session, the 
maximum penalty would drop to $200 for first 
offenders and to $400 for subsequent offences. 

Conviction for trafficking of any drugs, includ- 
ing marajuana, and possession of narcotics will 
still bring stiff fines and/or jail sentences-- for 
instance, up to seven years in jail for smuggling. 

Under current law amendments, judges are able 
to direct that a person found guilty of simple 
possession be discharged without any criminal 
record, or undertake probation conditions. 

The Canadian department of justice has instruct- 
ed all criminal prosicutors in cannabis cases to 
urge courts to decide this way, if there is no 
concurrent conviction for other offences and no 
previous criminal record.. 

The transfer of marijuana from the Narcotics 
Control Act to the lesser penalized Food and Drug 
Act followed the final report of the Commission 
into the Non-Medical Use of Drugs, headed by 
chairman Gerard IeDain. 

The report, tabled earlier this year, recommend- 
ed removal of all penalties for possession of 
marijuana or cultivation for personal use, while 
the actual drug remained illegal. 

This was the commission's Catch 22-- making it 
legal to possess an illegal drug. 

But the Liberal Party government under Pierre 
Trudeau has emphasized that it will not consider 
any form of legalization. 

Instead, it has separated marijuana from more 
dangerous drugs by changing their classification, 
and will retain illegal possession laws to deter 
new users. 

Pressure for changes in Canadian marijuana laws 
may have come from mounting convictions for 
marijuana use, as well as the LeDain report. 

Last year, convictions for simple possession of 
of marijuana in Canada totalled 7,052-- of thesr 
only 570 were jailed, and only 15 of the latter 
landed in prison on a first offence.

PHILADELPHIA -- A Nigerian-born animal care- 
taker at Thomas Jefferson University has won the 
Technician Scholarship Award of the American 
Association for Laboratory Animal Science. 

He is Etim B. Emah, 29, recipient of $500 
dollars to further his education in laboratory 
animal science. He is a full-time senior student 
at Delaware Valley College of Science and Agricul- 
ture in Doylestown, Pa., where he is majoring in 
animal husbandry. 

Mr. Emah was born in Calabar, located in the 
southeastern portion of Nigeria. He plans to 
return there, after obtaining a master of science 
degree, both to work with research animals and to 
teach at a local university. Until then, he 
intends to continue his part-time employment in 
Jefferson's large animal-care facility. 

Mr. J. Rodger Heaton, Director of Jefferson's 
Central Animal Facilities, offered Mr. Emah's 
nomination. He said in a letter to the Delaware 
Valley Branch of the association that he has 
never before been so impressed with a young man's 
efforts to obtain his educational objectives.' 

Mr. Heaton pointed out that the student is 
financing the entire cost of his education through 
self employment. Mr. Emah has been working summers

and weekends at Jefferson for two years. 

'It would seem uniquely appropriate for the 
American Association of Laboratory Animal Sciences 
to provide this scholarship assistance to an 
individual who will put his technology to work in a 
country which undoubtedly is not as advanced in 
this field as is the United States,' Mr. Heaton 

Mr. Emah says his employer has given him a high 
sense of belonging and has aided him greatly in 
pursuing his professional goals. 


State Senator Robert A. Rovner (R- 
Philadelphia) hit the nail squarely on the head 
when he declared recently: "It is is necessary 
for the Pennsylvania legislature to act favorably 
on the subject of 18-year-old drinking in the very 
near future." 

His warning is timely. Just about three 
months from now, New Jersey will lower its 
legal drinking age to 18. Thus our neighboring 
state will become the fifteenth state in the union 
to fall into step with the continuing movement 
throughout the nation to grant adult rights to 18- 
year-olds. A number of other states have set the 
legal drinking age at 19. 

Pennsylvania, however, although it has 
adopted legislation to give all the privileges of 
adulthood to 18-year-olds, has refused to include 
that of purchasing or consuming alcoholic 

Representative Rovner sees the change in 
New Jersey's law on January 1 putting pressure 
on the Pennsylvania legislature to change its 
attitude toward 18-year-old drinking. 

Rovner pointed out that with New Jersey 
lowering its drinking age, young people can now 
travel to three surrounding states to buy or 
consume alcohol. "With this thought in mind," 
Rovner said, "I will support the bill to allow 18- 
year-olds to drink in Pennsylvania because it is a 
lot safer to keep the young people in our state 
than to force them to drive across state lines." 
Rovner was referring to the fact that New York 
and West Virginia, both contiguous states to 
Pennsylvania alrea'dy have lowered their 
drinking age so that with the addition of New 
Jersey on January 1, there will be three 
surrounding states from which young folks can 
purchase liquor. 

In announcing his intention to push for 
adoption of the 18-year-old drinking measure, 
Rovner made it clear that while he was not 
saying that "18-year-olds should drink, but if 
they do we should keep them in Pennsylvania 
rather than force them to drive distances out of 
the state." 

Rovner, of course, is not alone in his stand; 
Governor Milton Shapp has also made it known 
that he endorses 18-year-old drinking privileges. 

It is not too late for the legislature to 
reconsider and include the right to buy and 
consume alcoholic beverages as a proper 
privilege for 18 year-olds who are otherwise 
considered mature enough to make contracts, 
marry without parental consent and to hold jobs 
as police or firemen and to enjoy all of the 
privileges of an adult. 

Such a change in the recently enacted 
legislation would keep Pennsylvania abreast of 
the times; it would make Pennsylvania more 
respected and would ease the minds of a lot of 
parents who are now thinking of their 18-year- 
olds driving across nearby state lines for the 
purpose of buying liquor and do not relish the 
idea at all.

A D.V.C. tradition has 
finally been broken! For the 
first time in the school's 
history, one of Del Val's 
very own coeds was crowned 
'Homecoming Queen. ' Lovely 
Gayle Berger, class of 1975^ 
competed with eight other 
contestants last friday eve- 
ning, Oct. 6, for the honored 
title. Each girl was spon- 
sored by one of the many 
clubs on campus. The clubs 
and contestants which entered 
were: Lori I>itt for Agronomy, 
Julia McDonald for Alphi Phi 
Omega, Peggy Cortney for 
Animal Husbandry, Gayle 
Berger for Dairy Husbandry, 
Cammy Wood for Equine, Chris 
Rames for Food Industry, 
Phyllis Shaub for Ornamental 
Horticulture, Diane Rogers 
for Soil Conservation, and ftith Arbelo for Veterans 

Gayle was crowned at the Pep Rally that night 
by our attractive Homecoming Queen of last year, 
Pat Stedman. Adding to all this beauty was the 
first runner up, Ruth Arbelo, and the second runner 
up, Chris Rames. 

This is gayle Berger' s second year here a? an 
Animal Husbandry major. She is very active in 
several clubs and she now holds the following 
offices: A-Day Representative for Band, Treasurer 
for Block and Bridle, and Program Chairman for 
Equine Club. Gayle says that she is glad that 
history has been made at D.V.C, and she hopes 
that a new tradition will continue in the years 
to come.

The homecoming parade was cancelled due to rain. 
With all the rain on Friday and Saturday six of our 
clubs managed to have floats for homecoming. A lot 
of thought and work went into the production of 
each float. The floats showed what effort was put 
into each, and the finished products gave a good 
indication that quite a few people worked hard and 
long hours. Several clubs were not able to com- 
plete their floats, yet their efforts should be 

The Dairy Society was responsible for this 
year's No. 1 float which gave them $75. The title 
of the float was 'SPIRIT PRODUCES POWER TO 
DEFEAT LIONS'. The center of attraction was 
a large cow, with winking eyes and a swishing tail 
eating her hey. The theme as written by the Dairy 
Society was as follows: 

'MISS D.V.C. SPIRIT', an animated Holstein 
Cow eredted by the Delaware Valley College 
Dairy Society, represents the producer of 
the world's most perfect food, milk. 
'SPIRIT' will give our Aggies spirit and 
poser to defeat the Albright Lions. 
'SPIRIT' also shows others what the main 
interest of our association is on campus.'

HOMECOMING PARADE cont. from pg. 5 

The second place prize of $50 went to the 
Ornimental Horticulture Society. The float held 
six words; solidarity, purpose, innovation, 
responsibility, integrity and tradition which 
together spelled out SPIRIT. Also on the float 
were articles representing every major at D.V.C. 
The truck pulling the float displayed the schools 
alma mater. The theme of the O.H. float: 

'SPIRIT OF THE 76th' 'The Ornamental 
Horticulture float duplicates the spirit of 
the 76th. The spirit, arises, on pedestals, 
from the solid foundation of knowledge, 
practical experence and careful observation, 
a foundation on which 76 years of spirit 
have been built. ' 
Third place and $25 went to the Agronomy Club. 
Their float showed a large boat in water containing 
people from all walks of life. Their theme 
explains well the meaning of their float. 

'IN THE SAME BOAT' 'In the same boat 
is the Agronomy Club's answer to the spirit 
of the 76th. The idea is taken from 
Washington crossing the Delaware in his 
spirit of 76. He was on his way to victory. 
We in the float are hoping to demonstrate 
by our fellowship a feeling of solidarity 
and purpose. We too are on our way to 
victory, in what could be a painful battle 
to win an education. 

We hope to learn from our college's 76 years 

so that we can help make America a better 

place to live. ' 

The Equine Club received honorable mention. 

'STAMP THE LION' was the name of the float and 

also describes what the float was about, a mighty 

steed stamping the Lion of Albright. Their theme 


'This float created by the members of the 
D.V.C. Equine Club relresents the SPIRIT 
with which they support the team. 
Our spirited friend here is showing us what 
our team is going to do to the Albright 
Lions this afternoon.' 
The Horticulture Society made a float showing 
an Aggie cutting a furrow. He was surrounded by 
many horticultural products and followed by the 
seal of D.V.C. 

"The theme of the Horticulture Society float 

is tradition at D.V.C. The plow is cutting 

a furrow which symbolizes the tradition of 

seeking new and better ideas than what 

appear on the surface. The horticultural 

products shown on the float are traditionally 

associated sith autumn. The seal is the 

traditional symbol of the college.' 

Block and Bridle had a float with our school 

mascot, Ceasar, and boughs of laurel for victory. 

Ceasar is much more than a regular ram shown by 

the theme of the float. 

'Ceasar... a symbol of tradition. Through 
the 76 years of college football, he has 
carried on the reputation and honor of the 
college, charging onto victories as well as 
bearing proud defeat. 

He is the driving force of the school, 
representing the spirit within each student 
as he travels through his academic and 
social development, onto a well-rounded and 
and productive individual of society. ' 
Everyone working on this year's homecoming floats 
should be commended. Not only did each float look 
good, but each float had a meaningful and well- 
thought-out theme.

When President Nixon first took office, 
our government was seriously lacking in en- 
vironmental agencies, so the President organ- 
ized the following ones: Evironmental Pro- 
tection Agency (EPA), Council on Environ- 
mental Quality (CEQ), and the National 
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration 
(NOAA). After this the President had the 
following laws put into effect that would 
limit air pollution: by 1975 90% of all emis- 
sions must be out of auto exhaust, levied a 
tax on those industries doing excess pollution, 
and controlled the emissions on jet planes. 

In the area of water pollution our Presi- 
dent has also been active, since he enforced a 
little used law and brought 100 civil and 320 
criminal suits against excess water polluters.

In May of 1972, the D.V.C. co-eds were 
given Cooke Hall as their dormitory. Four 
months later, forty-four girls moved into the 
first women's dorm on the D.V.C. campus. 
There were a few alterations made- the show- 
ers got curtains and the lavatories were en- 
closed-but other than these few modifica- 
tions, Booke Hall remained unchanged. 

Most of the girls, expecially those who 
had lived off-campus the previous years, really 
appreciate the dorm. But as much as we're 
happy with having it, many of us realize that 
there are certain things we'd like to see 
changed. Curfew hours and the male visitation 
policy are two areas that most of us fell 
should be reviewed and brought up to date. 

Once a month, the girls meet with Mrs. 
Porter, adviser to women, and Mrs. Gulick, 
our housemother, to discuss any problems we 
have that occur both in and out of the dorm. 
During a recent meeting many points were 
brought up for consideration. There were 
many suggestions made as to changes both in 
curfew hours and the visitation policy. The 
hours for the co-eds, as they stand now, are 
12:00 a.m. Sunday-Thursday, and 2:00 a.m. 
Friday and Saturday. Most of the girls feel 
that these restrictions are too severe; many 
feel we should have the same privileges as the 
male students. Mrs. Porter and Mrs. Work 
both stated that the various suggestions would 
be looked into and that we would receive 
word of any changes sometime in the near

I id nam IVlire Against Hie 

II .1 r riissmriil 

Denver, Colorado (CPS)--When Johnny came 
marching home this time, he really started to 
raise hell, unci the U.S. government didn't 
like it at all. 

It's difficult for any government to wage 
a war which thousands of returning soldiers 
not only disavow, but also spend much time 
and energy trying to stop. Since its inception 
at a Washington, D.C. anti-war demonstration 
in the spring of l c )72, the Vietnam Veterans 
Against the War ( VVAW) has been one of the 
most vocal organizations against the war in 

VVAW spokesmen claim that the govern- 
ment has initiated a policy of "harrassment 
and repression" toward VVAW and its indivi- 
dual members. The most recent event in this 
conflict was a conspiracy indictment filed 
against six VVAW members by a federal grand 
jury in Tallahassee, Florida. 

Last July, John Kniffin and Robert 
Wayne Beverly were planning to take part in 
demonstrations at the Democratic convention 
in Miami Beach. Shortly before the conven- 
tion they, along with 23 other VVAW mem- 
bers, were subpoened by the grand jury. Most 
of the veterans, according to Kniffin, thought 
the government was simply trying to keep 
them out of Miami. 

But the government had other plans. On 
July 13, an indictment was issued stating that 
six of the men, along with "diverse other per- 
sons, known and unknown to the grand jury," 
were planning to "organize, promote, encour- 
age and participate in a riot" in Miami on or 
about August 21. 

The indictment also charged that the six 
men were part of a plot to attack police sta- 
tions, police cars and stores with lead weights, 
fried marbles, cherry and smoke bombs fired 
by rocket wrist sling shots and crossbows. 

Kniffin, one of those indicted, recently 
told CPS that the government's prime motive 
is harrassment, not getting a conviction." 

Even the government, according to Knif- 
fin, can't expect the VVAW to "go up against 
the 82nd Airborn with sling shots and cross- 

Kniffin, who is presently out of jail on 
$25,000 bond, views the government's pur- 
pose as three-fold. The government wants to 
discredit the organization, intimidate the 
members of VVAW and tie up the time and 
money put into the VVAW. 

Kniffen and Beverly, who is named as a 
co-conspirator in the indictment, also charged 
that the Tallahassee affair represents a misuse 
of the grand jury's function. 

"A grand jury," Kniffin explained, "is 
supposed to meet to determine if there is 
enough evidence to issue an indictment, The 
grand jury in Tallahassee was a fishing ex- 

Beverly said that the grand jury foreman 
repeatedly told him that "the grand jury al- 
ways abides by the government's decision." 

Both men contended that the govern- 
ment has a good source of information con- 
cerning VVAW because the organization is 
heavily infiltrated with government informers. 
The informers aren't sought out, according to 
Kniffin, because they usually bring in one 
thing that the organization needs: money. 

The government informer who figures 
heavily in the Tallahassee ease is Bill Lemmer. 

liar Charoe Government 

Lemmer, according to Kniffin and Beverly, 
became a government informer after he made 
a deal to get out of a narcotics arrest in Col- 
umbus, Georgia. Lemmer was provided with 
money and a car in exchange for his services. 

According to Kniffin, Lemmer told 
Scott Camil, another of the co-defendents, 
that he was ordered by the FBI to infiltrate the 
VVAW and "attain a position of leadership." 

Lemmer also told VVAW members that 
the government planned to arrest the VVAW 
hierarchy, disrupt the Republican convention 
and use the resulting turmoil as a excuse to 
arrest left-wing radicals. 

Kniffin said that Lemmer made these 
disclosures before the VVAW members were 
subpoened and "the whole thing sounded a 
little too paranoid." After the subpoenas were 
issued, Kniffin said the VVAW members fig- 
gured there could be two reasons for Lem- 
mer's statements. 

It could be true, Kniffin said, or it could 
be part of a government "self-fulfilling proph- 

"The government thinks they know how 
we'll react," Kniffin explained, "because they 
trained us. Possibly they thought by having 
Lemmer tell us something like this they 
would provoke us into action." 

If the objective of the VVAW was vio- 
lence at the Republican convention, Kniffin 
said, the potential was there. But it didn't 
happen, and Kniffin claims that the only 
VVAW members who seriously worked for 
violence were government informers. 

Kniffin charged that one identified in- 
former came into the VVAW camps and urged 
actions which were "almost taken verbatim 
from the indictment." 

In another instance, according to Knif- 
fin, two informers urged the crowd, mostly 
Yippies and Zippies, to storm the fence of the 
convention hall. These same two informers, 
using the pseudonyms of Jerry Rubin and 
Harry Collins, threatened Alton Foss, one of 
the co-defendents indicted by the grand jury, 
saying that if he did not testify against the 
other members he would be arrested on a nar- 
cotics charge. 

Foss was on probation for a previous 
drug arrest, and was advised by VVAW law- 
yers to leave Miami and come to Gainsville. 
Foss was indicted with the other VVAW 
members, released on $25,000 bond and im- 
mediately re-arrested for passing one LSD tab- 
let to the same two informers. 

Kniffin charged that the government also 
used informers' information to pick the time 
of the grand jury subpoenas: the VVAW 
didn't have the money to post bond and the 
government knew it. 

The "government was slightly chagrin- 
ed," according to Beverly, when the $125 
thousand in bond money was raised quickly, 
mostly in the Tallahassee-Gainsville area. The 
problem: the trial, set in Gainesville "some- 
time after the election" will cost from $250 
to $275 thousand. 

Presently Kniffin and Beverly are travel- 
ing across the U.S., explaining the VVAW case 
to the people. Waging a propaganda war with 
the U.S. government, however, isn't easy. 

The government, according to Kniffin 
provided a NEWSWEEK reporter with a large 
stack of government papers concerning the 
Tallahassee case. The reporter called the in-

VVAW spokesmen claim that there has 
been an increase in government interference 
in the last few months: in Texas, 1 18 VVAW 
members were arrested for marching without 
a permit; in Colorado a paraplegic vet was 
arrested for assulting a police officer; and in 
Boston a double amputee VVAW member was 
arrested on a narcotics charge. 

"There's no doubt that he was an ad- 
dict," Kniffin said, "but he became addicted 
to pain killers because of his service to his 

The initial government response to the 
group's formation was to deny the existence 
of veterans who opposed the war. Because of 
this, it has become standard policy for VVAW 
members to. carry proof that they actually 
had been in the service and in Vietnam. 

Perhaps one of the reasons that the gov- 
ernment has taken such a stand against the 
VVAW is because, of all the ariti-war organiza- 
tions, it has been the most successful in reach- 
ing middle-class Americans. 

"After all," Kniffin explained, "we'd 
have had to be red necks, or we wouldn't have 
volunteered to go to Vietnam."

ANNE WEXI.ER, Director- 
NationaJ Voter Registration Drive 

Critical questions confront the eleven 
million newly enfranchised voters approach- 
ing the ballot box. Has the man elected on a 
promise to end the war broken faith with the 
American people? Can the American people 
stomach the war now that the color of the 
bodies has changed? Has the sense of moral 
outrage over napalming and bombing been ex- 
hausted? Do the nominations of Carswell and 
Haynesworth to the highest court mark a 
planned retreat from the commitment to ra- 
cial justice? Is the bugging of Democratic Na- 
tional Committee Headquarters symptomatic 
of an emerging orwellian nightmare; Has the 
Nixon administration sold out to big business? 

And what of the Senator from South 
Dakota? Will his economic proposals bank- 
rupt the economy? Do the Eagleton fiasco 
and the "refining" of the proposals of the 
primaries portend a presidency based on vacil- 
lation? Will McGovern, by reducing the Mili- 
tary budget, diminish the diplomatic flexi- 
bility of the U.S.? Invite aggression? Pave the 
road to war? 

The questions are, of course, loaded. 
There are few simple answers. But remove the 
vituperation and the inflated promises and 
four facts are clear: 

First: The candidates vying for the presi- 
dency differ widely in ideology and outlook. 
The potential voter cannot sit this one out on 
the grounds that the choice is between 
tweedle dum and tweedle dee. 

Second: The new voter who refuses to 
cast a ballot is shirking the responsibility 
which he claimed he deserved. To refuse to 
vote or to vote casually is to solicit the dis- 
gust of those who demanded the 1 8 year old 
vote. It is also to invite the smuggest "I told 
you so" in history from the cynics and the 

Third: The college student cannot 
choose to remain unaffected by the direction 
of national leadership. If the President of the 
United States chooses to tolerate unemploy- 
ment and underemployment, for example, the 
Ph.D. of today will continue to be the cab 
driver of tomorrow, and students with B.S.'s 
and B.A.'s will continue to pour into secre 
terial pools and factories. 




Think so? We hear a lot about 
lakes dying. Entropy they call 
it. When pollution reaches a 
certain level, it can't be 
reversed. That's what bribes 
do. Contribute to moral pollu- 
tion. Trust turns to sewage in 
the community of man. You 
know what to do about it. 

The community of man . . . 

God's club. 

It's not exclusive. 

It includes you and me. 

Fourth: The establishment listens to 
numbers. History will record that the young 
rose up from the college campuses in search 
of a leader to end a war they judged immoral. 
History SHOULD record that the young also 
managed to sensitize the nation to the need 
for ecological balance, population control, 
equal rights for minorities. By refusing to 
vote, the student invites inattention and guar- 
antees that the interests of the young will not 
be served. 

The message is clear. An important 
choice must be made. Those who use the bal- 
lot November 7 will participate in making it. 
Those who boycott the ballot box will suc- 
ceed only in ripping themselves off. 

The message is simple. VOTE! 

Don't disenfranchise yourself in the 
critical presidential election. Vote at 
the pools November 7. If you are reg- 
istered away from campus, write for 
an absentee ballot. The Federal dead- 
line is October 31. If you don't know 
how to reach your Board of Elections, 
call your local McGovern, Nixon, or 
other campaign headquarters. 






Vol . 20, No. 6 The Student Newspaper • Delaware Valley College November 6, 1972 



A few weeks ago Carol Finnie and I journeyed with Mr. 
Robert McClelland, from the placement and public relations 
department, to WLVT Channel 39 in Bethlehem. We all were 
anticipating the arrival of Miss Jane Fonda. Carol and I were 
representing Del-Val with about 50 other students from different 
area colleges. The "Speak-Out" began about 2 PM. 

The moderator, George Gibbs, began by giving Fonda's life 
story. She was disturbed at this and said she "hoped that this is not 
what the program will be about. There are many more important 
things to talk about." Miss Fonda spoke in a whisper; though not 
for effect. After a few weeks of traveling 18 hours a day as a part of 
the Indo-China Peace Campaign she could hardly tpeak. After this, 
Jane Fonda turned the show over to one of her co-workers, Tom 
Hayden. Mr. Hayden is one of the leaders of the anti-war movement 
in the United States. 

Mr. Gibbs, the moderator, seemed interested in the personal lives 
of his guests but the college-age audience was more interested in 
their personal feelings of Viet Nam. 

Below are listed some of the questions which were asked and the 

Q. - - Tom, can we really understand the problems of the 
Viet-Nam people? 

A. - - It is impossible for most of the people of the U.S. to 
understand the problems of Viet Nam. The main reason is 
the complete difference in cultural heritages between us and 
the people of Viet Nam. We must visit the country itself to 
fully understand. 

Q. - - What was the North-South Relationship? 

A. - - Viet Nam has been a unified country for 4000 years but 
other countries such as France and the United States have 
tried to alienate one from the other. 

Q. - - What about medical aid? 

A. - - There are only 7 doctors in public practice in South Viet 
Nam. More doctors have private practices but most people can't 
afford them. Laos and Cambodia were told to seek medical aid 
from Britain and France rather than the United States. 

Q. - - Tonight you have an appearance at Muhlenburg State 
College. The Muhlenburg V.F.W. is planning to march in protest 
of Jane Fonda, labeling her a traitor. Any comment? 

A. - - Tom Hayden replied "people can march for or against 
anything they wish." 

Questioning continued for a few minutes after the taping 
ended. Probably the most interesting comment was stated then. 
A gentleman who introduced himself as a Viet-Nam veteran spoke 
and maintained that everything previously said by Fonda add 
Hayden was correct. He said that people in a war situation are 
easily turned into war criminals. He stated that of course some 
innocent people are killed - this is part of war but emphasized 
that there is too much needless killing and suffering. He gave many 
examples of American tortures and the killing of innocent people. 
Too many people have been tortured and killed in Viet-Nam and 

The president you elect this fall will decide how many more 
people will suffer and die. 

Fonda, Hayden and the rest of the Indo-China peace campaign 
are far from being traitors. If anything they are patriots! By their 
radical actions one can see democracy at work. They are free to say 
whatever they please. As much as anyone may disagree with them- 
they believe in what they are doing and feel it is right. This alone 
should command respect.

JEFF EVANS, Staff Reporter - An Editorial Comment 

George McGovern is the only reasonable choice for President. 
As a contrast Nixon is a good speaker and can create emotion in his 
audiences. But he has lied too many times in the past. He says that 
peace is on the way but has signed no treaty. Richard Nixon has lied 
and deceived the American people too many times. He is not to be 

What it comes down to is this; if Nixon is re-elected we will 
have four more years of the same thing. What I mean by the same 
thing is four more years of increased unemployment with increased 
cost of living. Four more years of secrecy within government. Four 
more years of government which ignores the common citizen and is 
controlled by the economic structure of big business. 

George McGovern is not the ideal candidate. But he is better 
than Nixon. Nixon'j campaign people have tried to make McGovern 
look like he is inconsistent in the positions he takes on the issues. 
If one examines the record you will find Nixon to be as incon- 
sistent as anyone else; as all politicians are until they find the 
feelings of the voters. 

The issues and answers have been distorted by all of the bias 
political propaganda machinery but one thing is certain. Tomorrow 
you will be in a voting booth. You will mark the ballot or pull the 
lever on the voting machine. When you vote, vote for a change. Vote 
for McGovern. 

FSEE- Nov. II, 72 

College seniors will have an opportunity to compete in the very 
popular Federal Service Entrance Examination (FSEE) when it is 
given on a walk-in basis at our campus on Saturday, November 11, 
Complete details and FSEE announcements are now available at the 
Placement Office. 

During the past year about 200 on-campus tests were given at 
105 colleges within the Philadelphia Region which covers five states 
including this area. More than 3,500 men and women competed in 
these tests and more than 60% attained an eligible rating. 

The FSEE was designed with the college student in mind. One 
test taken one time in one place opens the door to approximately 60 
different and challenging career fields in many Federal agencies 
at locations all over the country. 

Open to seniors and graduates in any academic major the pro- 
gram is appropriate for students in all curricula except Engineering, 
Physical Sciences, Accounting and a limited number of other tech- 
nical fields. This examination is unquestionably the most popular 
avenue for Federal employment ever devised.

1 love Del Val. 

I really do. This is my school, our school, and all I want is to see 
the best and only the best for it. I want to see what we have 
preserved, and what we lack acquired. I want to hear my fellow 
students say that D.V.C. is by far the best school in the country, 
and that their years here were the best years in their lives. 

Let's face facts. How many of us can say that life here is 
perfect, and that we lack nothing? Del Val is, in my estimation, a 
good school, but not perfect. Then again, nothing's perfect. 
Therefore, we strive for perfection. We work towards constructive 
change - to change what must be changed. We don't attempt to 
start over, but to change from within. We have a proud heritage, and 
we must preserve this while changing those ideals that have become 

We must all realize that we are not students against students, nor 
students against faculty or students against Administration. We are 
the school - the students, the faculty and the Administration. We 
are all vitally important to this institution - take any one segment 
away, and you have no institution. This is not a battle - we really 
have no enemies. This is a society, and all segments work together 
for the betterment of the whole. Therefore, we must all get our 
heads together and objectively and freely discuss our problems. We 
must all work together, for we can acquire our goals only after we 
unite in the spirit that has always prevailed and helped make Del Val 
one of the finer educational institutions in this country today. 

Only after we rid ourselves of the feeling of malice towards any 
of the other segments of this society will we begin to make progress. 
This goes for everybody here - we cannot achieve our goals until we 
oppress any feeling of bitterness any of us may have. 

We must realize that we are all human, and that we all make 
mistakes. When any one of us does make a mistake, the rest must be 
willing to stand by him and help him to right the wrong. We must 
keep the faith, and support those who represent and govern us. We 
must make it our own personal effort to openly communicate with 
each other no matter what the situation is. Do we need a problem 
to communicate? Must we look at someone with an opposing idea as 
our enemy? Can't we objectively investigate a situation without 
personally taking offense? 

1 love Del Val, and I think it's a good school. There's room for 
improvement. I ask you, what's wrong with trying to make a good 
thing better? Nothing. Maybe we can, if we get together.

A statement of policy and rules must be made for any new 
institution to function in an orderly manner for the benefit of the 
student body. This is for off campus, and on campus students, 
friends of students, employees of the school, and faculty. 

The vending machines in the student center are available as a 
service to the college community. These machines must be taken 
care of. Damage sustained by vandalism or accident will affect the 
continued service of these machines. 

The Student Center is for all the students. Those who abuse the 
center will be summoned to the Student Court for the benefit of the 
majority of students who use, enjoy, and respect the center. 

Littering is one of the biggest problems of the student center. 
Those of the student body who complain about the flies and 
uncleanliness of the center must realize that it is their part to take 
care of it. Is it right to ignore another's poor habit and thus wade in 
garbage? I ask you to request those who have poor manners and 
habits to clean up and to respect the rights of others in regard to a 
reasonable noise level. 

I hope that suggestions and new ideas will come from the 
student body for the improvement of the Center. I also hope that 
the student body will enjoy the Center and learn and mature 
through the social and cultural exchanges that are part of everyday 
life. We all can work together for the benefit of the student body.

A new Saturday evening movie series has just begun for the 
benefit of those students remaining on campus on weekends. The 
movies are shown every Saturday night in Segal Hall Student Center 
but will be moved to Mandel Lecture Hall if the crowd becomes too 
large. There is no admission charge as the films are prepaid by the 
money collected at the weeknight movies. The purpose of these 
films, according to Alan Johnson, Chairman of the Movie Series 
Sub-Committee, is to stir student interest in campus activities. And 
it is also hoped that the students will attend because this program 
was created with the students' interests and enjoyment in mind. See 
you at the movies!

introductory economics class the top grade. 

Defending his grading policy, Morris claimed that "Grades 
destroy real incentive to learn, force students to treat their 
teachers as cops, and alienate students from each other by fostering 
competition and discouraging cooperation." 

Many of Morris* students have joined him in his fight to keep his 
job. The mellow atmosphere in his classes, they say, is much more 
conducive to learning than the usual tension-filled, terror-stricken 
lecture halls. 


The Philadelphia Women's National Abortion Action Coalition 
(WONAAC) an organization committed to giving each woman 
control over her own biological destiny through legalized abortions, 
contraception, and by banning forced sterilization, held a city-wide 
SPEAKOUT on ABORTION - A Woman's Right to Choose in 
Philadelphia on October 28th at the Fine Arts Basement, University 
of Pennsylvania, against laws which discriminate against women in 
these respects. 

Featured speaker of the day was Myrna Lamb, feminist play- 
write and author of the Broadway hit play Mod Donna. In addition 
the Washington Women's Theatre Group performed another play of 
Ms. Lamb's - What Have You Done for Me Lately. 

Other speakers included Dorothy Mann, member of the Pres- 
ident's Commission on Population Growth; Carol Rosenberg, 
feminist historian; Eileen Gersh, long time activist in the women's 
movement at the Univ. of Penn.; Ms. Lomax, Welfare Rights 
Organization; Emma Trout, theologian; a representative from 
AFSCME; and others. 

The day was used to educate around the abortion law repeal 
movement and gather support for the Abortion Rights Act of 1972, 
a bill introduced into the U.S. Congress by Bella Abzug and 
calling for the repeal of all state anti-abortion laws. 

A workshop will be held on the International Women's 
Tribunal on Abortion, Contraception and Forced Sterilization 
called for March 9-11 in New York City. This Tribunal is slated as 
Three Days of Denunciation of the Crimes Against Women and has 
already been endorsed by Simone de Beauvoir, Gloria Steinam, 
Mary Lindsay (Mayor Lindsay's wife) and Myrna Lamb.

PROFILE - Dr. II. Tiilh 

DOUG SMITH, Staff Reporter 

Assistant to the President, Dr. Winston Tolles, is new on campus 
but not new to the College; he has been associated with Delaware 
Valley College for thirteen years as a consultant on accreditation. 
Dr. Tolles was Dean of the College at Hamilton College in Clinton, 
New York, a men's Liberal Arts college with an enrollment equiva- 
lent to that of Delaware Valley. 

Dr. Tolles first became acquainted with Delaware Valley in 1959, 
as Chairman of the Middle-States Evaluating Committee, when the 
College first sought accreditation. When accreditation was not 

g anted, it was Dr. Tolles whose consultation helped correct the 
ollege's deficiencies. As a result, Delaware Valley was accredited in 
1962. Since then, he has been a regular consultant to Delaware 
Valley's administration. 

As Assistant to the President, Dr. Tolles has several duties. He is 
preparing the College's progress report to the Middle-States Associa- 
tion; he represents Dr. Work at meetings and conferences; he 
reviews academic and administrative plans and procedures; and he 
is also teaching a course in English Literature. His position is new, 
however, and other responsibilities are likely to be added. 

Dr. Tolles feels that Delaware Valley has progressed well since 
1959. He does not foresee any extreme changes, but he hopes the 
College will refine itself within existing policies. 

Dr. Tolles is an important addition to our Administration. But 
we should not expect any radical changes from him. Although he 
believes that student judgment should be thoughtfully considered, 
he is here to ensure maintenance of the Administration's existing

Wild "Bill" Resigns 

Staff Reporter 

Coach H. W. "Bill" Craver is moving 
on. An Aggie coach for nine years has 
moved to the position of "Director of 
Admissions" here at Del-Val. Following 
is an interview The Ram did with him 
in his new position. 

Briefly, a little about "Wild Bill": 
Coach Craver has been in athletics for 
a very long time, spending the largest 
part of his life in football. He is very 
interested in the sport and all that takes 
part. It will surely take some effort to 
get used to his new position. 

How long have you been at Delaware 

"Since April 1, 1964." 
Where did you coach before then? 

"At Colorado State University as an 
assistant coach." 

How long were you Head Coach at 

"Nine years." 

When did you make your decision? 

"On November 9, the Thursday 
before Wilkes." 

Why did you resign? 

"I felt that I could do more for the 
school as a whole as Director of Ad- 
missions than as the head football 

What or who made you start thinking 
about resigning? 

"When I was offered the opportunity 
to move into Admissions I knew that 
in the very immediate future I would 
have to make a decision as to which 
path that I'd have to take." 

Do you plan any changes in the ad- 
mission procedure? 

"No. Policies are set by Dr. Work 
and the Board and my function is to 
carry out those policies." 

Do you believe you made a wise 

"Yes, no question about it. I'll miss 
coaching and athletics; however, I've 
been very fortunate to be chosen for 
a position that still enables me to 
know, and be close to, and help guide 
our students." 

Do you know who will be next head 

"No, not at all." 

Will you be connected with football 

"Nothing except for recruiting." 

Mr. Craver was very helpful through- 
out the questioning and answered each 
question directly without thinking any 
one of them was too personal to be 
answered. Whether or not there will be 
any drastic changes in the football pro- 
gram or if the change of coach was good 
or bad remains to be seen in the up- 
coming seasons. 

Schools, Colleges 
told to de-sex 

Secretary of Education John C. 
Pittenger has told public school execu- 
tives that they are required to: 

• Eliminate sex-segregated and sex- 
stereotyped classes, activities, courses, 
jobs and assignments. 

• Set annual goals to hire, train and 
promote women at every level. 

• Insure that students are counseled 
to consider a variety of career opportuni- 
ties, not just those traditionally entered 
by persons of one sex. 

• Include feminist literature, especially 
that which portrays women in nontradi- 
tional roles, in school libraries. 

• Provide a sex education course in 
human growth and development. 

He set a similar course of action for 
college and university executives. In addi- 
tion, he required that they: 

• Eliminate special rules for men or 
women (housing, hours, athletics, jobs, 

• Establish nondiscriminatory admis- 
sion qualifications for women and men. 

The Secretary has recommended that 
all educational institutions sensitize staffs 
to sexism and seek to establish child- 
care and development programs for chil- 
dren of staff and students. In a memo 
to Department of Education officials, he 
directed them to prepare materials and 
guidelines to implement his policies. 

Debra Weiner, special assistant to 
Secretary Pittenger, will coordinate the 
implementation of the new policies and 

The impetus for his action, in addition 
to the Joint Task Force on Sexism's re- 
port, came from an executive directive 
of Governor Milton J. Shapp in 1971 in 
which he directed departments of state 
government to develop affirmative action 
programs to end discrimination against 
women and members of minority groups 
and to involve them at every level of 
employment and decision-making. 

Task Force Report Available. Copies 
of the 72-page report of the Joint Task 
Force on Sexism in Education are 
available from Joseph Bard. Send a 
stamped, self-addressed 9" x 12" enve- 
lope to him at Box 911, Harrisburg, 
Pa. 17126. 

"My kind of loyalty was loyalty to one's 
country, not to its institutions or its office- 
holders. The country is the real thing 
. . . to watch over . . . Institutions are 
extraneous, they are its mere clothing, 
and clothing can wear out . . . become 
ragged. To be loyal to rags . . . that is a 
loyalty of unreason, it is pure animal; it 
belongs to monarchy, was invented by 
monarchy. The citizen who thinks he sees 
that the commonwealth's political clothes 
are worn out, and yet holds his peace, 
and does not agitate for a new suit, is 
disloyal; he is a traitor. That he may be 
the only one who thinks he sees this 
decay, does not excuse him; it is his duty 
to agitate anyway." 

— Maiuc Twain 


Oskar H. Larsson, registrar here at 
Del-Val, has been elected a member-at- 
large of the Middle States Association 
of Collegiate Registrars and Officers of 
Admission at the group's 42nd annual 
meeting November 30, 1972 at Host 
Farm in Lancaster, Pa. 

The Association has some 1,000 mem- 
bers from more than 300 colleges and 
universities in New York, Pennsylvania, 
New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, the 
District of Columbia, Panama Canal 
Zone, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. 

California Mari- 
juana Initiative 
Pulls Two Million 



California's Marijuana Initiative (CMI) 
attracted over two and a half million 
votes in the November 7 election. 

Although only one county - San Fran- 
cisco — produced a winning margin 
(52%), the proposition vote raised the 
number of declared supporters in Cali- 
fornia for the decriminalization of mari- 
juana from under ten percent to more 
than 33 percent. 

There was no sorrow, no tears in the 
CMI office when the vote on the initiative 
was confirmed at about 34 percent. 

Interstate calls flooded the office all 
through election night and into the morn- 
ing from people interested in the result. 

The next day the calls changed to 
those from local residents wanting to 
help the next attempt. 

There were calls of "What do we do 
now?" and requests for new petition 
forms, and in the few hours before 9 
p.m. when the final results were declared, 
43 new supporters had been placed on 
the mailing list. 

Others agreed to drop by the Sunset 
Boulevard office to rap with other people 
on the directions the organization for the 
liberalization of marijuana will now 

Everyone agreed that the reason Propo- 
sition 19 was not completely victorious 
was due to a lack of money and the 
limited time in which the campaign was 

As the San Francisco office described 
it in CMI's first internal newsletter: "Our 
growth from a few people with an idea 
to a madly functioning loosely co- 
ordinated state-wide campaign . . . had 
to be created so quickly and brusquely 
that close communication was difficult." 

(Continued on page 2) 

The Dave Mason concert held by the 
Sophomore class was one of the biggest 
social events ever held at this school. It 
was such an area landmark that the 
Philadelphia Bulletin decided to run a 
review which took up the best part of a 
page; the review was written by William 
K. Mandel (no relation) a noted area 
music critic. It's too bad that Del-Val 
is so insulated that the student body did 
not realize the great impact this concert 
had. It was no less than a musical and 
social milestone not only for Del-Val but 
for the whole Delaware Valley area. 
Never-the-less the Sophomore Class met 
with a hassle which lasted for weeks. 

Rusty Suher, President of the class of 
1975, came to Student Government ask- 
ing for financial aid for his class after 
the concert and a loss reported to be 
over $3,000.00. Although the concert 
proved to be a social smash, it lost 
financially. Government granted the 
sophomore class $2,000.00. Russ Licciar- 
dello, President of the Class of 1974, 
was the only government member who 
opposed this action. Although outvoted 
Mr. Licciardello was not finished: before 
the last Student Body meeting he passed 
out leaflets describing his opposition. 
This, of course, resulted in an excited 
"mob" of students at this meeting. Many 
ideas were exchanged and no conclusions 
were reached. After a few weeks it was 
decided to place the $2,000.00 in an 
escrow account till the end of the second 
semester. If need be, Student Govern- 
ment may re-claim this money. In re- 
trospect it was very interesting to see 
how the student body reacted to a one- 
sided story and did not listen to the 
other. Mr. Licciardello and Mr. Suher 
both had valid reasons for their argu- 
ments. Both were fighting for the ideas 
of a certain segment of our student body. 
Unfortunately neither one initially look- 
ed for a compromise. As John Rigolizzo, 
S.G. Rep. for the Class of '75 said, "Let[s 
get this over with; I'm tired of all this 
B.S." So was I. 


The conversion of Cooke Hall to a 
Women's Dormitory was a great step in 
the advancement of Del-Val. The Ad- 
ministration took a wise step with this 
addition. With the Women's Dorm also 
came many problems. It seems as though 
both the Administration and Student 
Government were unprepared for these 
problems. Although the Women's Dorm 
is great, it is being run under discrimina- 
tory policies. Women on campus have 
curfews and a different visitation policy 
than have males. How these hours differ 
is not the point; just the fact that they 
do differ indicates discrimination. (SEE 
TOLD TO DE-SEX). It seems as though 
Del-Val is hiding behind that "Private 
School" classification it likes to use. 
Hopefully Student Government will make 
some strong recommendations next se- 
mester. If this doesn't work maybe out- 
side legal help is the answer. One thing 
to consider: The Women's Dorm is not 
a "gift" to the students. It is here out 
of necessity. Del-Val could not exist for 
many more years without it. It will 
greatly expand the number of people 
wanting to apply for admission and keep 
more people here. It provides one of the 
prerequisites for state and federal finan- 
cial aid. Del-Val had no choice. Hope- 
fully the Administration will respect 
State sex discrimination laws and abide 
by them.

At the onset of the campaign, the con- 
cept of decriminalization of marijuana 
was never expected to find a position on 
the ballot. 

But more than 392,000 signatures as- 
sured its place on the ballot, and it went 
on to strike a credible voting score in 
the election. 

In the three days before November 7, 
a giant marajuanathon was launched in 
Los Angeles County, and despite the 
huge area, a wall map in the office show- 
ed that over half of the county was 
canvassed for a "yes" vote on 19. 

On election night, those people partied, 
watched McCovern's defeat, and then 
saw the local vote for marijuana posted. 

There was no depression, only happi- 
ness, only an involvement with a con- 
tinuing struggle, until some day "the 
candidate is freed." 

As coordinator Larry Skinner saw it, 
"We couldn't lose." 

With 98% of the California votes 
counted, Proposition 19 had 2,656,577 
(33.5%) votes yes, and 5,266,086 (66.5%) 
votes no.

Mr. P Dunning 

Staff Reporter 

A new addition to our Science Depart- 
ment is Mr. Peter Dunning who hails 
from Philadelphia. He attended Trinity 
College as an undergraduate, received 
his master's degree in Math at the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania and previously 
taught at Temple University before com- 
ing to D.V.C. 

Mr. Dunning is married and has two 
children, William, 6, and Robert, 5. In 
his leisure time he enjoys playing piano, 
chess, tennis and squash, which is a game 
similar to handball and tennis, played 
indoors with rackets and a hollow rubber 
ball in a walled court. Mr. Dunning is 
also a member of Delta Psi fraternity 
and in this past election gave his support 
to McCovern. 

One of the things Mr. Dunning would 
like to change is the time the Philadel- 
phia train arrives here at D.V.C. It would 
be more convenient if it arrived at 8:10 
a.m. instead of 8:20 a.m. so that it would 
coincide with the starting of classes. 
When asked about his impressions of 
D.V.C, he stated it was still early to 
say anything definite but said he did like 
the idea of a college located away from 
the city and also the fact that students 
come here for a specific purpose instead 
of just a liberal arts education.

The shame 
of our cities... 

Some say the inhabitants are to blame. 
"They don't give a damn" we hear. "They" 
is a fiction. The pronoun of a thousand self 
deceptions. "They" usually means "us" in 
the final analysis. The shame of our cities, 
the inadequacy of our social aid programs 
indict us. All of us. Because we are all part 
of the community of man. From which 
there are no drop outs or cop outs. 


The community of man . . . God's club. 
We are all members. You and I . . . and they.

FALL SEMESTER— (Continued) 


Student Government received a com- 
promise on the proposed Open Door Male 
Dorm Visitation hours. Check dorm bul- 
letin boards for the extended hours. It 
was good to see the Board of Trustees 
reacting to the student body by extending 
the hours somewhat. PROBLEM: A rider 
was attached to the acceptance which 
states that any violators of this policy 
will be prosecuted by the ADMINI- 
STUDENT COURT. Although the Stu- 
dent body appreciates the extension of 
visitation hours, it is appalled at this 


Student Government has been working 
for years on this policy. As it stands now 
any alcoholic beverages are not permitted 
on campus even by persons over the age 
of 21, the legal age in Pennsylvania. 
After consulting with outside legal aid 
the Student Government has found that 
a private school like Del-Val may pro- 
hibit alcohol on its property. This issue 
is finished for now. Del-Val has a perfect 
right to dictate policies in this area. 


Last year the Student Government pro- 
posed an unlimited cut system. It was 
supposedly "lost" by some administrator 
and has just been found. Hopefully the 
Administrators and Board Members of 
this school will consider this policy

Hippies Discovered in USSR 

(Good Times/FPS/CPS) - The Russian 
magazine "Soviet Youth" from Riga had 
described a new movement among Rus- 
sian Youth marked by "weirdly dressed 
bands with neck rings, sun glasses and 
disgusting names such as 'the frogs' or 
'the savages'." 

Another paper said that the new youth 
are "constantly on the move, refusing 
to disclose their names or using pseu- 
donyms." The official Soviet Youth daily 
expressed "shock at the ringlets and 
beards sported by many Soviet youths. 
... It is teeming everywhere with long 

The "Christian Science Monitor" has 
reported a clandestine gathering of Soviet 
hippies in December in Vilnyus, the 

capital of Soviet Lithuania. The 
"Monitor" said that the local authorities 
called out the militia when they got wind 
of the congress but it ended before the 
heat could figure out exactly how to deal 
with it. The next such gathering is rumor- 
ed to be in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia 
-like Lithuania, a region annexed by 
the USSR after WWII. 

The Communists refuse to accept re- 
sponsibility for the hippies. One esta- 
blishment journal, "Sovietskaya Rossiya," 
tried to blame the West: "Hippieism is 
a protest against the social structure and 
the traditions of the capitalist world. 
.Under socialism there is no basis for 
hippieism. Those who imitate hippies 
are our young people of low culture."

Dairy Society Publications 

The Delaware Valley College Dairy 
Society has lead a very active and suc- 
cessful fall program covering a broad 
range of activities. First of all, the club 
is one of the largest Dairy clubs to date 
with 45-50 regular members. With this 
large membership we have become in- 
volved in many projects to raise money 
and to promote school spirit and publi- 

Homecoming weekend was our big 
event in the early part of the year. Gayle 
Berger, '75, our entry in the Queen 
Contest, won to break D.V.C. tradition 
by being the first coed to be crowned. 
Also the club float directed by Tom 
McWilliams 74 and entitled "Spirit Pro- 
duces Power to Defeat Lions," was first 
in the float competition. The large ani- 
mated Holstein cow brought the club 
$75.00 as well as recognition for its hard 
work and imagination. 

The next project started by the Society 
was a cow-clipping service for area dairy 
farmers. This is an on-going project for 
any dairyman wanting his cows clipped 
for winter stalling or for classification 
and showing purposes. The price is $1.50 
a head for stabling cows and higher for 
more complete jobs done for classifica- 
tion and showing. So far, the committee, 
headed by Dave Crooke 74, has clipped 
178 cows for a total of $267.00. Seven- 
teen members have participated in this 
activity to date. 

Another service and money making 
project recently started is a dairy club 
year book which is going to be printed 
sometime during the spring semester. The 
publication is to be in catalogue form 
and will be paid for by advertisements 
sold to dairy cattle breeders and to any- 
one connected with the industry. All 
dairy alumni and members of the club 
will receive a copy as well as FFA 
chapters, breed representatives, and other 
people involved with the dairy science. 
The booklet will be great publicity for 
the school as well as an excellent op- 
portunity for cattle breeders and busi- 
nesses to advertise. Bill Haines 73 chairs 
the committee. 

At a meeting held on November 14, 
1972 the club was entertained by Win- 
slow Tole, manager of Liseter Guernsey 
Farm. He spoke to the club on various 
aspects of dairy herd management. The 
club hopes to have more speakers in the 
near future. 

The annual Dairy Society — Block and 
Bridle Banquet was held Wednesday, 
December 6, 1972 at the Collegeville 
Inn. Dr. B. B. Baumgardt, head of the 
Department of Animal Science at Penn 
State University, was the speaker for 
the evening. Both livestock and dairy 
judging teams were recognized. 



On Saturday, December 2, after two 
months of very hard and dedicated work, 
the wrestlers from D.V.C. went to Leba- 
non Valley College determined to bring 
back the first place team trophy ever 
won in the history of the school. Al- 
though wrestling at Delaware Valley has 
always been a major sport, it has never 
brought in any first place trophy from 
any tournament. This year's team felt 
that it was time for a change, and, head- 
ed by Coach Mark Stephenson, they 
accomplished just what they set out to 
do. Not only did they win the first place 
team trophy, but also three first place 
gold medals, three second place silver 
medals, and two third place bronze 

They had more men in the finals (six) 
than any other team and two in the 

Throughout the tournament it was a 
team effort with each man. When 118 
pounds was wrestling, the rest of the 
team cheered and the spirit continued 
all day. 

Jay Yothers, the 118 pounder, started 
off the wins at 1:00, then came Ron 
Jennings at 126, Rick Homan at 134, 
all the way to Al Bartlebaugh at heavy 

The afternoon was tough because it 
was almost continuous wrestling from 
preliminaries to semi finals, and the 
wrestlers did a great job of helping each 
other get "psyched" for each match. 

After the semi-final matches were 
finished, we had six men to go into the 
finals. The three first place finishers were 
Jay Yothers at 118, Fran Campbell at 
177, and Allen Bartlebaugh at heavy 
weight. Al also brought home a trophy 
for most falls in least time, having two 
in about three minutes. Ron Jennings at 
126. Rick Homan at 134, and Joe Thonus 
at 157 all took seconds, dropping only 
one bout; Ray Johnson at 167 and Mike 
Ackley at 150, each took a third. 

At the end of the tournament, the 
Delaware Valley Aggies wrestled their 
way to 83 points beating the second 
place team, Swarthmore, by 12!4 points. 

Needless to say, Coach Stephenson was 
very proud of his men and hopes that 
they continue the season with the desire 
and enthusiasm that they started with. 
He and the team also hope that all of 
you will be active wrestling supporters 
to help them have the best season 




Vol. 20, No. 9 The Student Newspaper • Delaware Valley College February 20, 1973 



With the opening of the new Agricultural building, new 
doors were opened for the Plant Sciences. There are 3 labs for 
this field, and a Soils Science lab in the building. 

The Soils lab is equipped with everything needed for 
analytical experiments of soil. All of the labs are equipped 
with a "prep" room and the soils prep room has such 
equipment as a centrifuge which can simulate up to 60 times 
the force of gravity. Various soil profiles are also found in the 
lab for study. Other equipment found is a pH meter, 
colorimeter, and a Kjeldahl-digestion apparatus used in protein 
determination — all sorts of apparatuses for analyzation of 
physical and chemical properties of soils. 

In the two Plant Science labs upstairs you can perform any 
exercise in the plant science area on Horticultural or Agrono- 
mal crops. Also tests in Plant breeding, plant propagation and 
plant pathology can be performed. There is a "Wiley-mill" 
which chops leaves into powder for analysis. In the Hort lab, 
they have colorimeters, incubators, a kjeldahl apparatus, an 
autoclave and new microscopes, all necessary in the study and 
testing of Horticultural Products. There is a new machine 
called the Atomsorb and automatic recorder. This enables the 
student to examine soils and plants to do determinations of all 
cations. This machine acts on the principle of emission and 
atomic absorption. This is a very expensive piece of equip- 
ment, and it should be noted that not too many colleges our 
size have such an instrument. This is a "tremendous asset to 
the Agricultural, Biological and Chemical areas," Dr. Feldstein, 
chairman plant sciences, told me. During my tour of the Ag. 
Building, I was shown the lab where the senior Hort. majors 
were busy at work. I saw them measuring juice from oranges, 
weighing bananas, and peeling apples. There is enough equip- 
ment there to study all kinds of fruits and vegetables. In both 
labs upstairs, there are ranges, refrigerators, and sinks that have 
garbage disposals in them for easy clean up. 

In lab 206 there is a nice plaque on the wall which tells that 
the lab was bequeathed by Barnett Binswanger, Jr. in loving 
memory of his parents Barnett and Martha G. Binswanger. 

The laboratory downstairs is primarily for Ornamental 
Horticulture, and specifically for Landscape Design. The 
students are able to do drafting and plans on a beautiful 
drafting table, and there is an apparatus for easy showing of 
the drawings. 

The old Hort. building has been rearranged and updated. 
Botany, Plant Physiology, and Plant Materials are offered 
there. It is well equipped and very "functional". 

Naturally the new building is not just for the Plant Science 
Division, but it has helped create a different atmosphere for 
more modern teaching techniques. 

All of this was made possible by the "endless and untiring 
efforts of our president, Dr. Work," who in tum "had the 
cooperation and backing of the Board of Trustee ... in the 
planning d coordinating" of this project. 

Two new part-time teachers have recently come to Del Val. 

Patrick Lantz teaches Woodlot Management. Mr. Lantz got his 
B.S. in Forestry at Penn State University. The father of 3 
children, he has worked as the District Forester of Pennsyl- 
vania Bureau of Forestry in the Department of Environmental 

William Lee Porter, a father of 4 children, is teaching the 
laboratory in Fundamentals of Food Chemistry. Mr. Porter 
received his B.S. degree from Illinois Institute of Technology 
in Food Engineering, and his M.S. at Purdue University in 
Food Technology. Besides teaching the lab here, he is 
presently also teaching at Temple University and pursuing 
advanced graduate studies at Drexel University.

The Animal Science Division has gained a new faculty 
member this year, Dr. Craig Hill. Dr. Hill graduated iast June 
with a Ph.D. in Animal Science from Virginia Polytechnic 
Institute and State University. He is teaching courses in animal 
breeding and selection, and meat and meat products. Dr. Hill 
also supervises different laboratories in the animal science 
division and participates in animal judging. With the addition 
of Dr. Hill, the animal science division, including The Dairy, 
Farm 3, and the Poultry Diagnostic Center, now has ten men. 

There have been other changes in the division including 
additional courses and new and improved facilities. The new 
Agriculture Building has provided two new animal science 
laboratories as well as providing space for the courses that used 
to be taught in the Allman Hall basement. Allman Hall 
basement is now used for an expanded laboratory animal 
facility. Next year the animal science division will offer many 
courses on Laboratory Animals in the Evening Division. These 
courses will be open to anyone regardless of his major.

2nd Ten • Purple Bells & III 

(CPS)— "President Nixon is a regular guy — he wears sports 
clothes," his chief spokesman said recently, although he would 
not confirm the rumor that the presidential wardrobe includes 
a pair of flared purple trousers. 

President Nixon has been reported as seen strolling about 
the woods at Camp David, Maryland wearing purple flared 

"Flared is a bit of an exaggeration," responded White 
House press secretary Ronald Ziegler to reporters' queries. But 
he acknowledged the President does have "pants without 

The reporters then asked about the color. Ziegler skirted 
the purple pants issue, although he did say that the President 
has blue and maroon slacks.

Zinnias and marigolds now top ail other garden flowers as 
the most popular among home gardeners in America, and for 
1973 both these important classes are represented among the 
All- America Selections. 

The two new All-America winners are Peter Pan Scarlet 
Zinnia, a magnificent new color in this unique class of 
large- flowered dwarf border hybrid zinnias, and Happy Face 
Marigold, a prolific deep golden yellow "hedge" type mari- 

Peter Pan Scarlet Zinnia, a silver medal award winner, is a 
beautiful addition to the Peter Pan series of hybrid zinnias, 
and only the third color to be introduced in this unusual new 
class. The other two Peter Pans are Plum and Pink - both 
winners of All- America gold medal awards in 1971, when they 
scored higher than any other entries in the 40 years of judging 
thousands of flowers and vegetables. 

Peter Pan Scarlet Zinnia, the 1973 All-America winner, 
combines attractive large flower size with dwarf plant habit — 
a combination that more and more home gardeners are 
demanding. Individual flowers are well-doubled and measure 3 
to 4 inches across. Seldom growing more than a foot high, the 
first flowers appear when the plants reach 6 inches. They 
remain neat and compact, tolerate rough weather with ease, 
and cover themselves with blooms. They are superb in a 
landscape or border planting where they will remain neat and 
showy all summer. 

Happy Face Marigold, a bronze medal winner, belongs to a 
class of hybrid marigolds popularly known as "hedging" 
marigolds owing to their neat, uniform habit of growth. Happy 
Face has deep golden yellow fully-double flowers measuring 
up to 4 inches across on 26 in. plants. Earlier than the 
Jubilees, more double than Apollo and Moonshot, it stays 
colorful from the end of July until frost, branching and 
rebranching with fresh blooms. At its best in a border, Happy 
Face is also useful as a container plant and as a patio accent. 

Both Peter Pan Scarlet Zinnia and Happy Face Marigold are 
easy to grow from seed. Plants for earliest blooms can be 
started indoors and transplanted to the garden after danger of 
frost, or they can be direct-sown into the garden where you 
want them to bloom. 

Before All-America Selections was organized in 1932 to 
make awards for outstanding new flowers and vegetables, 
gardeners had no way of knowing which flowers introduced 
each year were the best. Today, All-America Selections has 30 
trial gardens in the United States, Canada and Mexico, with a 
different judge at each location responsible for judging the 
flowers on the basis of performance in his own trials Each 
flower variety submitted for trial is known only by a code 
number so the judges have no way of telling which breeder 
submitted the trial. Points are given to each flower and the 
totals counted to determine those which qualify for Bronze, 
Silver and Gold Medals.

Toilet Seats to Alma Mater 

(CPS/ZNS)— A Cleveland mail order house is currently churn- 
ing out toilet seats that are specially designed for the alumni of 
26 different colleges and universities. 

The sanitary speciality manufacturing company reports that 
its typical alumni seat usually features the school's crest on the 
top of the lid - and that when the lid is opened, the school 
motto is revealed. For example, an Ohio State graduate would 
get a seat that says: "Go Bucks!" 

The company reports that it is now working on a toilet that 
would play the school fight song when the lid is lifted.

Poets Allen and Louis 


liiiislimi In Read a HTf 

Allen Ginsburg. the most controversial if not the most 
celebrated of the contemporary poets, and his father, Louis, 
will present a joint reading of their works in the gymnasium of 
Bucks County Community College at 8 p.m., Friday, Feb. 23. 

The program, sponsored by the Cultural Affairs Committee, 
is open to the public. Tickets are $2.50. 

The younger Ginsburg is often referred to as one of the 
angry co-founders of the Beat Generation who has been 
transformed into the joyous leader, guru and elder statesman 
of the flower people. 

He was described in Playboy magazine as the "hippie-guru 
poet laureat of the new left and the flower children." 

One interviewer pictured Ginsburg as "an amiable affront 
to nearly every respectable literary, intellectual, religious, 
political, and moral convention." Nevertheless, he has re- 
mained a leading voice in American poetry for nearly 20 years. 

But father Ginsburg does not share his son's approach to 
life and poetry. He says, however, that they do manage to 

A retired school teacher from Peterson, N.J., the elder 
Ginsburg has been writing and reciting poetry more than 50 
years. He has been doing readings with Allen for the past seven 

The usual procedure is for father to warm up the audience 
with puns and move on to his lyrical rhymes. He then sits by 
squirming proudly as his son takes over as the poet, mystic, 
psychedelic proselyte and bearded prophet of doom. 

The father once said of Allen's poetry: 

"I don't like his unselective, undiscriminating flow of 
unstructured, ungrammatical outpouring, though in his flot- 
sam and jetsam there are noble jewels. 

"With long Whitmanesque lines he flagellates the apathy 
and hypocrisy and injustices and inertia of society, and he's 
good there, wonderful there. But I don't like the bad language 
his jewels float on." 

He also differs with his son on life style. The father said, "I 
don't agree with him about smoking pot. He wants pot in 
every chicken, not me. Allen is like a well-cooked egg, on one 

He says Allen is unjustifiably pessimistic. Louis said, "For 
him we should curl up and die. He's like Chicken Little — a 
leaf falls on him and he says the sky is falling." 

The elder Ginsburg has three books of his own. The most 
recent was "Morning in the Spring" in 1970. He has appeared 
in numerous anthologies and national magazines and poetry 

Allen Ginsburg has five books of poetry to his credit and 
two books of prose, the latest being "Indian Journals" in 

His works are in many anthologies and on phonograph 
records. One recording, "Kadish," is a recollection of his 
mother's painful bouts with social injustices and mental illness. 

(CPS)- When Jane Fonda appeared at Burlington County 
College, in Pemberton, New Jersey, she had to contend with a 
rather vociferous heckler. 

Dressed in a mock green beret and proclaiming himself a 
member of the "John Birch Society," Lloyd Hutting asked 
Fonda "How does it feel to be a traitor?" 

To which Fonda slowly turned to Hutting, looked him 
sharply in the eye and replied, "Our country was founded by 
traitors, sir!"

New York, N.Y. (CPS)— Traditions change slowly at Ivy 
League schools, so it was a major event when workers deleted 
the word "Men's" from the canopy of the old men's Faculty 
Club at Columbia University. 

The Men's and Women's Faculty Clubs merged recently 
and, as a campus memo stated, "Women now have a chance to 
peer into formerly off-limits comers." 

Professor of English George Stade spoke for many of his 
colleagues when he said the merger was "a good idea but I 
have not been able to notice any difference" at the club. A 
fellow professor agreed adding, "Yes, the food is still

BY GEORGE H. KLEIN - Staff Reporter 

WAPO was founded in 1971 by the brothers of APO. At 
that time Bob Badat, president of APO, organized a committee 
to try to establish a campus radio station. Kirby Ellis headed 
that committee and also became the first General Manager of 
WAPO. David Leininger became the first Program Director. At 
that time Dr. Robert S. Orr, advisor, and Dean Joseph E. 
Fulcoly contributed to the making of WAPO. 

WAPO began to broadcast on February 13, 1971. At that 
time WAPO was located on the second floor of the Alumni 
House and was staffed by APO brothers from 7:30 p.m. to 
11:00 p.m. With the exception of a transmitter bought in 
Nova Scotia, all the equipment WAPO owned was homemade. 
The brothers of APO borrowed $1700 and bought two new 
transmitters plus seven miles of wire. These new transmitters 
were not put into use in '71. The APO brothers then paid back 
their $1700 loan the following year. 

In the beginning of the fall semester 1972, WAPO was still 
on the second floor of the Alumni House; but changes were 
coming. The two new transmitters APO had bought the year 
before were put into Work Hall and the New Dorm, DJ 
positions were opened to the entire student body, not just 
APO brothers, and now WAPO was broadcasting from 8:00 
a.m. until 12:00 midnight. WAPO then received $500 from the 
Administration, which was used for the improvement of their 
studio; they then moved to the second floor of Segal Hall. 

In September, the General Manager job was turned over to 
Kent (Rudy) Bubbenmoyer, and Fred Kobylinsky became the 
new technician. Howard Mandel became Production Manager 
and David Leininger, treasurer. Nineteen hundred dollars were 
given to WAPO by the Ram and $2000 were given by Student 
Government. The $1900 that the Ram gave to WAPO was 
money that was left over from the year before. Originally the 
money was to be used for a printing press for the Ram but this 
proved to be impractical. Then the Faculty Publications staff 
and staff members decided to give the money to WAPO. This 
gave WAPO $3900 to buy new studio equipment. WAPO 
purchased 1 audio mixer, 2 turntables, 1 Teac reel to reel tape 
recorder, 2 Sony cassette tape players, and a 
compressor-limiter. WAPO then moved from the top of Segal 
Hall to the basement of Segal Hall, because of unstable 
footing. When WAPO moved to the bottom of Segal Hall, all 
the new equipment was put into use; the problem of 
scratching, hissing and crackling noise coming over the air was 
solved. Now the only sound that comes out of WAPO, 640 on 
Wour AM dial, is pure music.

By this time, I'm sure everyone of the Aggies knows the two 
ducks that live down at Lake Archer. During the eight years 
that Waddles was here, (he was the black and white one), he 
saw quite a turnover of mates. But then one day last fall, 
Waddles died. Now it is the feeling of the Aggies that no one 
should be alone here; everyone needs companionship. And 
along that line another black and white duck was obtained for 
the lone one. 

Even though winter is here (?) and we have cold days, the 
ducks know where to go — right up to the barns near the farm 
machinery buildings for protection. They are also fed well; 
many an Aggie in a solitary moment goes down to the lake to 
throw a few pieces of bread to them. 

These two ducks add a lot of character to the simple and 
soothing atmosphere of our lake. Take care of our fine

The Del. Val. Glee Club has been quite active in the recent 
months. The Christmas concert was a sellout, with standing 
room only. The choir, directed by Mrs. Roberts, joyfully sang 
many old favorites along with a few less-known selections. 
They repeated their fine performance at Tabor Home in 
Doylestown, and again at the Mercer Museum. This group is 
indeed a dedicated one, and anyone interested is invited to 

Also active are the Dairy and Animal Husbandry 
departments. They recently sent representatives to the 
Keystone International Livestock and the Pennsylvania Farm 
Show, both held in Harrisburg. The students representing DVC 
were: M. Bencze, J. Flaeger, P. Holcombe, G. Flickinger, J. 
Stump and D. Laudenslayer. These students came away with 
many awards in various classes. The department won various 
awards for its outstanding cattle, sheep and swine. 

At its last meeting the Horticultural Club held its elections. 
Jeff Dilks was named President with Rick DeVinney as 
Vice-Pres., E. Weiss as secretary. Already the club is working 
on plans for A- Day and are discussing the possibility of raising 
many of their own vegetable plants. 

Elections were also held by the Ornamental Horticultural 
Society, with the results as follows: Mark Saunders was elected 
President, followed by John Quinn as Vice-Pres., Paul 
Karcewski as Treasurer, Bob Miller as Secretary, Mark Cole 
A-Day Rep., and Guy Leighton and Mario Beveaqua in charge 
of publications. The O.H. Society is eagerly anticipating its 
trip to Montreal and has also started a program of side trips to 
various gardens, nurseries, and green houses.

Vw Hybrid Zucchini Wins for 1973 

1973 AAS Winner, Zucchini Squash Aristocrat 


right win mum meet 

(LNS/CPSy-Conservative college students recently met in 
Madison, Wisconsin to kick off a drive to set up what they call, 
''alternative student newspapers" to combat the "media 
monopoly of the New Left" on campuses across the country. 

The conference, which resulted in the founding of the 
Independent Alternative Student Newspapers Association, was 
sponsored by the Badger Herald Corporation. It was funded by 
the Jefferson Education Foundation. The president of Badger 
Herald, Nicholas Loniello, announced that the United States 
Chamber of Commerce would help the association by 
providing business contacts for national advertising and 
fund-raising programs. 

Loniello said the "New Left student media monopoly 
regularly attacks American business and the free enterprise 

Speakers at the conference included Eugene Methavin, an 
associate editor of Readers Digest, and Jenkins Lloyd Jones, a 
syndicated columnist who publicly advocates the theory of 
genetic white racial superiority. 

The conference also heard from Vice President Spiro Agnew 
who sent a congratulatory letter and called on the students to 
"call for a free, fair and responsible student press." 

One new vegetable variety — a hybrid zucchini squash called 
Aristocrat — has been honored by an All-America Award for 

Aristocrat Hybrid Zucchini won a bronze medal for its extra 
earliness, prolific yields, and the quality of its handsome, dark 
green glossy fruits which don't fatten-up and spoil as fast as 
other varieties of zucchini. First fruits can be had within 48 
days of sowing seed directly into the garden. Fruits are straight 
with rounded ends, and taste delicious. 

Zucchini squash is now one of America's most popular 
classes of vegetable, and it's not surprising why. Easiest of all 
vegetables to grow from seed, they are quick to mature, and 
yeild their delicious fruits over a long period on bushy plants 
that do not take up much room in the garden. The large, 
easy-to-handle seeds are best planted in groups of three or four 
spaced Vh feet apart in fertile soil after all danger of frost is 
past. A sunny position is desired, and germination takes about 
10 days. As germination is generally good with zucchini seed, 
it is best to thin the seedlings in each group to one strong, 
healthy plant. 

Fruits are best picked when they are six to eight inches 
long. They can be steamed or baked or sliced raw to substitute 
for cucumbers in fresh salads, mother gourmet trick is to slice 
them lengthways, dip in egg and breadcrumbs, and fry to a 
delicious golden brown for one of the most tasty side-dishes 
you'll remember. 

Both male and female flowers appear on the same plant, and 
it is the female flowers which produce the fruit after 
pollination from a male flower. This pollination is usually 
done by insects, but can be effected more reliably by hand — 
using a small camel's hair brush to transfer pollen from the 
male flower to the female. 

The enormous yellow flowers of zucdhini squash are a 
source of fascination among children, and they are edible. 
Picked early in the morning and fried in batter is a favorite 
way to eat the flowers among rural families.

The Delaware Valley College Circle K Club has reorganized 
this semester. The club is part of the Circle K International 
which is the largest collegiate organization in North America 
with nearly 800 clubs throughout the United States and 
Canada. Circle K is a service organization through which 
college men and women can find a means of responsible 
student action in their communities and more active involve- 
ment on their campuses. The objectives of the club are: 

To emphasize the advantages of the democratic way of 

To provide the opportunity for leadership; 

To serve on the campus and in the community; 

To cooperate with the administrative officers of the 
educational institution of which this organization is 

To encourage participation in group activities; 

To promote good fellowship and high scholarship; 

To develop aggressive citizenship and the spirit of service 
for the improvement of all human relationships; and 

To afford useful training in the social graces and 
personality development. 

The Delaware Valley College Circle K Club is sponsored by 
the Central Bucks Kiwanis Club. Mr. Leon Nelson, the club's 
on-campus advisor, and the Central Bucks Kiwanis have been 
very helpful in getting the club re-established on campus. Two 
circle K members attend the weekly Kiwanis meeting that is 
held at the Countryside Inn, Doylestown. With help from the 
Kiwanis Club, two members will be attending the regional 
convention to be held soon in Bethlehem. 

The Circle K's first project was the Valentine's Day candy 
sale to raise money for the treasury. The club was in charge of 
promoting the recent blood drive for the Doylestown area. 
Among the service projects planned are participation in the 
March of Dimes Walkathon for handicapped children and 
sponsorship of an Easter egg hunt for retarded children. 

If you want to do something meaningful and worthwhile, 
the Circle K club urges you to join. Meeting times and 
locations are posted on bulletin boards on campus.

Many students are familiar with the routine formalities 
which occur on DVC's campus throughout the school year. 
I'm sure everyone is quite aware of the Homecoming and 
A-Day events scheduled every year. There is one affair 
presented on campus every year which many students are not 
familiar with, however. This is RAP's and Del. Val's biannual 
recruitment day. RAP's Recruitment Day program sets aside 
one day of each semester on which minority students of the 
Philadelphia public school system tour our campus. 

We, the Black students of D.V.C., acquaint these students 
with certain aspects of Del Val college life, both social and 
academic, and stress the benefits of obtaining a college 
education, preferably at Del Val. 

We have had three Recruitment Day events since the origin 
of RAP (previously titled "Black Omnibus"), and plan to have 
many more in the future. 

On our last Recruitment Day about 23 students from the 
Philadelphia area attended our program. So far, 14 applica- 
tions for enrollment here have been sent in and three students 
have technically been accepted. Through these efforts we hope 
to increase the minority student enrollment in order to permit 
Del Val to reflect truly the racial make-up of modern-day

Dear Dr. Work, 

I am writing to you today in reference to the March 26, 
1973 memorandum on the Women's Dormitory Open Door 
Policy. We, the members of Student Government, were both 
annoyed and disappointed at the decision of the Board of 
Trustees. The students would like to know exactly why this 
decision was made. Also, they would like to know why, if the 
decision was made at the Board of Trustee's meeting of March 
4, 1973, why did it take until the 26th of March to make this 
decision known. 

The students of this College have been thought of as 
irresponsible children too long. It is about time it was realized 
that the students of this College are responsible adults and 
should be treated as such. To be told "that such a policy 
would not be in the best interests of either the students or of 
the College", is not enough. The students deserve and want to 
know why. 

This policy was discussed with the advisor to women before 
it was presented to you. At that meeting it was agreed by the 
women themselves that they wanted an Open Door Policy and 
this Policy was thought to provide the safeguards they wanted, 
with the liberty which they deserve. 

This incident proves again the need for a student to be 
present in the Board of Trustee's meeting while matters of 
student interests are discussed. In this way, the student's 
opinion can be expressed and answers to any questions the 
Board may have can also be answered. 

At this time I am asking you to resubmit this proposal to 
the Board at your next meeting or before. It must be brought 
out that the women of this school deserve equal policies, with 
their consent, as the men. Why should a resident of the 
womens dormitory be prohibited from having a male guest 
visit her in her room? This is the real issue. 

I would like to conclude by saying that this is not an 
attempt at severing communications between the students, 
administration, and the Board of Trustees, but an attempt at 
trying to improve these communications. 

Sincerely yours, 

Murray Klein, President 
Student Government

To the Editor: 

Annually Del Val College spends thousands of dollars in 
resupplying its facilities. The constant need for these materials 
arises from vandalism caused by our own students at D.V.C. 
To these students, or should I say pampered asses, I would like 
to direct a message. Get the hell out of college! I don't care 
where you go but don't cause me difficulty or inconvenience 
with the childish and destructive expressions of your small 

minds. May I also add that other colleges which have better 
security systems would meet your actions with direct and 
immediate expulsion and charges to the full extent of the law 
with full recompense for all damaged materials I am not alone 
in my opinion of you lazy ignorant S.O.B.'S. Ask all of the 
serious students who have come to any educational institution 
to learn. Whether for the reasons of bettering themselves or 
their station in life or coming to learn for learnings sake, they 
have many advantages over the vandalous members of college 
enrollment. Sheer numbers, sincere effort, a serious attitude 
towards responsibility and a true respect for the rights of other 

But, let's get back to the awful situation of vandalism and 
the undeserving student. Everyone wants you to get out and 
we all know that you will not give up your too, too 
comfortable position in school which in most cases is being 
paid for by mommy & daddy. If they only knew — but, maybe 
they do know and are just trying to get rid of you like the rest 
of the students. 

What we need is a more efficient security service and a 
better attitude among the students. Usually the vandals get 
little more than, "tsk, tsk,", and, "if we don't catch them we'll 
have to charge the other students for the damages". The 
solution to this problem rests in the hands of the administra- 
tion and Student Government. And before the student body I 
ask these groups are you being fair? More over, are you being 
sensible? Kick this scum off of our campus and press charges 
against them. Record their activities on their college records so 
that other institutions may be spared the misery of having to 
cope with this type of sickness. 

To all students: Get smart! The more these idiots destroy, 
the more we have to pay. This certainly is defeating our 

To the sick demented incompetents that destroy my 
college. Get the hell out and stay out for good!

the complicated subject of life insurance proves to be an 
unfortunate one, advantageous more to the agents than the 

In recent months, we have received complaints from both 
students and parents concerning a particular type of selling 
approach used with students. Under these techniques, pay- 
ment of the first year's premium is deferred and a promissory 
note is signed by the student. This promissory note is legally 
valid as soon as it is signed, thereby eliminating any oppor- 
tunity for the student to reconsider and cancel the policy by 
non-payment of premiums or any other means during the first 

While this policy arrangement has the advantage of pro- 
viding immediate coverage without immediate payment, it is 
not one which should be entered into ignorant of its full 
implications and obligations. Many students do not seem to 
recognize the nature of the debt obligations, and in view of the 
high-powered selling techniques sometimes used and the 
student's susceptibility to them, a moment's reconsideration 
may be especially valuable. 

Our advice to students on this matter is to become an 
intelligent consumer. And this, we think, necessitates dis- 
cussing any planned life insurance purchase with a parent or 
other knowledgeable person. The Insurance Department is, of 
course, available to answer all inquiries and resolve complaints.

Richard Koes, Class of 1966 Animal Husbandry major, 
received his M.S. at the University of New Hampshire and his 
Ph.D. at the University of Missouri in Nutrition. He is at the 
present time on a postdoctorate fellowship with the Labora- 
tory of Animal Physiology in Wageningen, Holland, until May 

He recently wrote a long letter, here are some highlights: 
He is married; they have a small son, Derrick, born in Holland 
last fall. His wife Mary, besides her family responsibilities, is 
taking a course in Japanese miniature gardening. He visited the 
best and best-known Nutrition and Physiology Institutions in 
Hohenheim, West Germany; Vollebec, Norway; Copenhagen, 
Denmark; and will see laboratories in Scotland and East 
Germany. His main interest is in the field of Nutrition and 
Physiology with emphasis on energy and protein metabolism. 
He had the opportunity to visit with the leaders in these fields 
and had firsthand information on their experimental work and 

His work at Wageningen is connected with (a) a feed- 
evaluation system, (b) digestion trials on different hay 
qualities, and (c) the influence of water temperature, protein 
level, and fat production of growing crops. It is quite 
interesting that the basic material they work with comes from 
Holland, Russia, Beltsville (U.S.A.), Japan, Denmark, and 
some from New Hampshire, the one he worked in while he was 
completing his M.S. degree. This job involves a great amount 
of computer work, and his courses in statistics are coming in

During the past few years I have observed the student 
government's activities and function, and I have been quite 
discouraged with their lack of success. 

The reasons for the many, failures can be attributed to 
many things. Some members of the government have run for 
these offices in order to have it on their transcripts These 
individuals are only interested in becoming worshipers of the 
administration and the board of trustees. People of this nature 
have destroyed the power of the government because they 
aren't willing to object to the Puritanical ideas of the senile 
and wealthy board of trustees. 

It is the responsibility of the incoming government to 
organize the student body in peaceful demonstrations in order 
to let the board of trustees know that we are sick of their 

I would also like to express my strongest congratulations to 
Doctor Work and the board of Trustees for rejecting the 
obscene open door policy for Cooke Hall. 

Their most appreciated decision shows that DELAWARE 
VALLEY'S OVER THE HILL GANG has once again saved 
THE FARM SCHOOL from becoming the wild campus having 
nightly orgies. 

The action of the OVER THE HILL GANG has shown the

SCHOOL plans to continue the role it has preserved for the 
past seventy five years, which the AGGIES are so proud of.

American literature has lost one of its most prolific creators 
with the recent death of novelist Pearl Buck. Mrs. Buck was 
also a member of the Board of Trustees of Del- Val. She wrote 
many citations for honorary degrees presented here, and 
received a Dr. of Letters degree at the 1965 graduation where 
she was also the main speaker. Dr. Work's office considered 
information about Mrs. Buck's attendance at board meetings 
and monetary contributions confidential. 

Awarded both the Pulitzer Prize (1932) and the Nobel Prize 
for Literature (1938), she was elected to membership in the 
American Academy of Arts and Letters and the National 
Institute of Arts and Letters. 

Humanitarian in practice as well as thought, she founded 
Welcome House, a non-profit organization designed to facili- 
tate the care and adoption of American-born children of Asian 

Born in West Virginia in 1892, she grew up in China, 
acquiring an appreciation and respect for the Chinese people 
that was revealed in her many tales of Chinese culture and life. 

The Good Earth, published in 1931, gained its author 
international acclaim and a Pulitzer Prize. Made into a movie, 
the novel established Pearl Buck's reputation as a literary 

Creator of The Chinese Novel, My Several Worlds and The 
Promise, she also authored numerous children's books and 
contributed to various magazines, including Nation and the 
Saturday Review of Literature.

Although it has taken longer than was expected, the new 
floor has recently been laid in the new gym, and it has already 
been used quite extensively by Del Val students, who are very 
pleased with it. As everyone who was here first semester 
knows, getting a new floor was necessary because the old floor 
was ruined through water damage. 

When the Sidney Neumann gymnasium building was con- 
structed in 1959, it was built around a pump house which 
supplied water to the dormitories. When the concrete was 
poured, some of the pipes were buried. One Friday evening 
last August water leaked out of a hole which was created by 
corrosion in the capping of one such pipe. The water flowed 
through the Officials' Room, under the double doors, and into 
the gymnasium. The incident is estimated to have occurred at 
about 5:30 P.M., because Mr. Linta and others were in the 
gym until 5 o'clock, and the place was empty when it 
happened. The water on the floor was discovered later that 
night by the Ross men when they made their daily rounds. It's 
a good thing they did discover it, or it would have flowed on 
out the door, through the lobby, and on into the new gym, 
and that floor would have been damaged also. 

It was not known exactly where the source of the water 
was, so it took quite some time to stop the flow. The water 
supply could not simply be turned off because it was part of 
the main line that supplied the dormitories. Finally, the 
concrete was chopped away and the hole in the pipe was 
discovered by Mr. Troxell, but the damage had already been 
done. The old floor was a wooden one of the type known as 
the "floating floor." The water had the effect of a flood; it got 
underneath the wooden floor and raised it up in a bubble-like 
fashion. It could not possibly be repaired, so it was necessary 
to replace it with new flooring. 

After such matters as allocation of monies, insurance, and 
determination of the type of floor were decided upon, work 
was started. The first thing to do was to move the bleachers 
out. This was done by student volunteers, which saved paying 
out money for labor. Of these volunteers Mr. Linta has said, 
"They're the greatest." 

Work was then started on ripping out the old wooden floor. 
This was done with a shovel-dozer and only took a couple 
days. Then a two-inch slab of concrete was poured over the 
old concrete. Because no chemicals were added to it, thirty 
days were allowed for the concrete to dry evenly. Compli- 
cations arose during this time. The fresh concrete didn't 
adhere to the underlying old slab. Air pockets formed in the 
concrete and it raised and cracked. For this reason it had to be 
broken up and new concrete poured, and allowed to set 
another thirty days. It then took eight days to lay down the 
new wooden floor. 

There were three main reasons why it took so long to get 
the new floor installed: (1) work was delayed somewhat 
because workers were busy repairing damage brought on by 
the June flood; (2) there were labor disputes, and (3) the extra 
thirty day wait was needed for the repoured concrete to set. 

The floor that was put in is a kind Mr. Linta suggested. It is 
made of a synthetic material called Robins Sport Thread 
Fiber. Ursinus College has this type of floor, except theirs has 
a rough surface, whereas ours has a pebble-grained surface. It is 
the first floor of its type in the area, and is expected to be the 
floor of the future because of its several advantages. It 
combines smoothness with traction. It provides a truer 
bounce, and is easier on shins and ankles. It is very easy to 
keep clean. In the event that an incident similar to the one 
which ruined our old floor ever occurs, it will not be ruined by 
the water. Water would flow over it and out, rather than get 
under it and raise it up. If anything were to happen to the 
floor, it would be a simple operation to cut out a small area of 

it and put in a "plug" of the material in its place. It has a life 
expectancy of five to one over the old-fashioned wooden 
floors. This does not mean it should be abused, however. It is 
still preferable to wear sneakers in the gym rather than street 
shoes or track shoes, and dirt should not be tracked in from 

Student reaction to the new floor has generally been very 
favorable. Some don't like it because of its dull finish, some 
think a wooden floor would be more economical, and one 
student complained that it gives him blisters, but most agree 
that the new floor has its advantages. One student commented 
that he thought it made the gym a lot quieter than it was with 
the old floor. Another said that he liked it because polished 
wooden floors are too shiny. But whether or not they think 
this type of floor is better than a wooden floor, everyone 
agrees that it is a welcome improvement over the warped floor 
we had in the fall.

Women's (pen Door Rejected 


In today's age of men going to the moon and exploring 
unknown parts of the world, we the students of DELAWARE 
VALLEY COLLEGE have also progressed to the year 1948; 
students' ideas and comments are totally disregarded as 

Here at DVC girls are SEX objects and are not allowed to 
have contact with men in their rooms; however, the sneaky 
and wise girl travels to the men's dorm, where the same 
amount of damage can be done as if she were in her own 

My suggestion is that the male visitation rights be abolished, 
and the male and female students be secluded. They should be 
required to be in their rooms by six thirty and not allowed to 
leave until eight A.M. the next morning. Classes should be 
either all male or all female. 

At orientation every freshman male should be castrated, so 
sex will not be on his mind, only school work. 

We should have religion classes of each denomination at 
least twice a week to keep moral standards high. All males 
attending should be required to wear woolen underwear. 

All male students caught watching the cheerleaders practice 
will be subject to taking five cold showers before going to bed 
that night, and all callouses on the hand will be checked. 

Yes, isn't it too bad that a student government can not be 
heard because of the administration's outdated ideas of how a 
college should be run. 

Will DVC ever progress? 

The answer is yes — DVC will progress. By the year 2000 
DVC should be in the year 1976, always maintaining a healthy 
backlog of 24 years. 


How would you like to study in Britain? A new British 
government policy has fixed a standard tuition rate at any of 
700 British universities and colleges for overseas students, of 
$625. This covers 45 quarter credits or 30 semester credits. 

As a result, the Study in Britain Association reports that 
the total cost for an academic year at a British college or 
university (including round trip air fare) can now run as low as 
$2500 to $3500. This includes tuition, meals, lodging and 

Furthermore, American students (of faculty members) can 
now study on any of five levels: 

1. At a campus of an American University in Britain. 

2. As a visiting student, scholar or fellow. . 

3. As a graduate or undergraduate at a college or univer- 
sity, combined with research, work experience or independent 

4. As a student of British institutions such as the theatre, 
the arts, welfare services, politics, medical services, the law, 

5. For teachers doing special research or sabbatical study. 
Complete details of these work and study programs, how to 

enroll, where to apply and how to combine travel and study 
are available from SIBA. Preliminary planning takes three 
months, so now is the time to plan for the next study year.

Can You Beat This 


During the past three years that I have spent here at D.V.C., 
I have heard many people boast of their fantastic accomplish- 
ments and achievements. Of course many of them cannot be 
duplicated, so we must take their word for it. 

Everyone has their specialty and maybe one of the 
following world's records belongs to you. If not, CAN YOU 

Longest Hair — The longest recorded hair was that of 
Swami Pandarasannadhi, the head of the Thurai monastery in 
India. His hair was reported, in 1949, to be 26 feet in length. 

Longest Beard — The longest beard preserved was that of 
Hans Langseth (1846-1927) of Norway. His beard measured 
174 feet at the time of his death in 1927. Langseth spent his 
last 15 years in the U.S. and the beard was presented to the 
Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. in 1967. (It is 
rumored that one of our Psychology teachers here at Del-Val is 
going for this record). For those Co-Eds interested in the 
female record, you will have to beat 14" which was set by the 
bearded lady Janice Deveree, in 1884. 

Champion Blood Donor — Mr. Linta should try to recruit 
Joseph Elmaleh (born 1915) of Marseilles, France, to come to 
our school as a student. On May 22, 1968, he donated his 
597th pint of blood making a total of 74 gallons 5 pints since 
1931. (I wonder if he could get an athletic scholarship, Ned?) 

Swallowing — The worst known case of compulsive 
swallowing was reported by the Journal of the Ameriran 
Medical Association in December, 1960. The patient who 
complained only of swollen ankles, was found to have 258 
items in his stomach, including a 3 pound piece of metal, 26 
keys, 3 sets of rosary beads, 16 religious medals, a bracelet, a 
necklace, 3 pairs of tweezers, 4 nail clippers, 39 nail files, 3 
metal chains and 88 assorted coins! 

Most Alcoholic Person — This category has probably been 
challenged by more Aggies than can be recorded. The world's 
record is held by a hard drinker named Vanhom (1750-1811) 
born in London, England, who averaged more than 4 bottles 
of rum per day for 23 years prior to his death at 61. He is 
believed to have emptied 35,688 quarts! 

Beer — Lawrence Hill (b. 1942) of Bolton, Lancashire, 
England, drained a 24-pint mug of ale in 64 seconds on 
December 17, 1964. A 3 pint mug was downed in 10.15 
seconds by Jack Boyle, 52, at Barrow-in-Furness, England, on 
May 14, 1971. Beat that oneStauby! 

Spitting — The greatest distance achieved at the annual 
classic at Raleigh, Mississippi, is 25 ft. 10 inches by Don 
Snyder, 22, set in August, 1970. Distance is dependent on the 
quality of salivation, absence of cross wind and the coordi- 
nation of the quick hip and neck snap. At present 1 am in 
training and hope to attend the next annual classic which will 
be held in the fall. My best unofficial record is 23 ft. 84 

The record for projecting a melon seed is 44 ft 1% inches, 
achieved at a contest in Neosho, Missouri in 1971, by Dale 
Blaylock. Serious spitters wear 1 2-inch boots so practice spits 
can be measured without a tape. 

If there may be anyone in the reach of this paper who feels 
he can beat any world record and verify it, please submit it to 
me and I will see that your name is inscribed in the Guinness 
Book of World Records. 



April 17, 1973 



The Delaware Valley College Dairy Society's first Annual 
will be going to the printer the end of March. The booklet will 
consist of articles describing the dairy club, the school 
curriculum, and the facilities at the college. Articles and 
advertisements will total forty pages. Distribution will be to 
alumni, club members, breed organizations, FFA chapters and 
advertisers. Hopefully it will be available for "A" Day. 

This year the club trip will be to Virginia Polytechnic 
Institute. Blacksburg, Virginia. The dates are April 13 and 14. 
The trip will be by bus and will include several stops at farms 
along the way. About forty members are expected to 
participate. We will tour V.P.I, facilities and exchange ideas 
with their dairy science club. 

"A" Day activities planned by the club include a dairy 
cattle fitting and showing contest on Saturday, a judging 
contest on Sunday and a milkshake stand operated both days. 
About 35-40 members will participate in the show. There will 
also be exhibits in the new Ag. building in one of the labs 
dealing with feed analysis and cattle evaluation and selection. 

mm bill kii 

State Senator Robert A. Rovner (R-6th District), the youngest 
member of the Pennsylvania Senate, introduced Senate Bill 60 
in order to lower the drinking age in Pennsylvania from 21 
years to 18 years. 

Rovner said, "It is necessary for the Pennsylvania Legis- 
lature to act favorably on the subject of 18 year old drinking 
in the very near future, because in January 1972 a new law 
allowing 18 year olds to drink in New Jersey went into effect. 
Our neighboring State has become the 15th state in the Union 
to fall into step with a continuing movement throughout the 
nation to grant adult rights to 18-year-olds. 

"I have introduced the bill to allow 18 year olds to drink in 
Pennsylvania, because it is a lot safer to keep the young people 
in our State than to force them to drive across State lines. 
Now thay can go to practically all the states surrounding 
Pennsylvania and drink if they wish (New York, West Virginia, 
New Jersey, and Ohio to some extent)," said Rovner. 

Senator Rovner said, "I want to make it clear that I am not 
saying that 18-year-olds should drink, but if they do, we 
should keep them in Pennsylvania rather than force them to 
drive distances out of the State." 

Senator Rovner said all who support his bill should contact 
their State senator or House member letting them know of 
such support. He continued, "Young people should have their 
views heard." 

SWEET FREEDOM in action

MUSIC mini 


Del-Val has been discovered for its good concerts! So far 
this semester there have been two concerts on campus; 
Quicksilver and Bonnie Raitt. Also appearing were Sweet 
Freedom with the former and Little Feat and Eric, Lurch and 
Howard with the latter. 

The Quicksilver/Sweet Freedom concert was held on March 
21st in the new gym. Attendance was approximately 1300 
paid with approximately another 100 coming in during the 
show after tickets were taken. Although the check from 
Ticketron is not in yet, Student Government feels they lost up 
to and perhaps more than $3000. They feel the big problem 
here was the $4.00 tickets. It probably would have been better 
to set a flat rate of $3.00 and $3.50. 

Another factor to be considered was the stage set-up. Even 
if all the tickets were sold, there would have been no room for 
all the people because the stage juts out so far in the center. 

This was Sweet Freedom's first concert and they put on a 
fairly good show. They show promise, but the musicians 
themselves have to become a lot tighter than they are. 

Quicksilver has been around for a while and put on a great 
show. Although a bit loud for some, they did give the people 
their money's worth by playing for two and a half hours. 

Before Del-Val considers any more big names, though, they 
are going to have to work out the power problems as 
Quicksilver needed 100 amps of power to run their equipment 
and the gym has only 60. But the show went on, "with a little 
help from our friends," and full power. 

On April 2nd Bonnie Raitt buzzed in with Little Feat and 
special surprise Eric, Lurch and Howard. This concert was 
produced by Folk C. Productions with Del-Val getting 50 
cents on every ticket sold. Approximately 1300 paid packed 
into the old gym for it. 

All three were very good and should be watched and 
listened to during the next year. 

Government hinted that in the future all concerts would 
probably be done in this way as the 50 cents per ticket made is 
all gravy. As of yet there has been no bill sent to them 
concerning electricity, janitors and the like from the school. 

Yes, Del-Val. has been discovered having great concerts. But 
too many students don't know what they're missing.

(pen Letter 
To The Community 

Delaware Valley College has been accepting women stu- 
dents for a few years now. But until this year, there has been 
no on-campus housing for these students. Now, however, the 
women have been given Ethel Cooke Hall as their dormitory. 
This "gift" has been held up in front of our faces every time 
we make a legitimate complaint about our ill-treatment as 
people on this campus. 

Since September, we have been requesting Open Door 
visitation rights for men in our dorm. This policy is in effect in 
the men's dorm requiring a female visitor to be signed in, and 
the door to remain open during her stay. At the beginning of 
last semester we went through the proper channels and 
requested that the same policy be applied to Cooke Hall, but 
were turned down. We realized the administration's concern 
for our safety, so this semester we submitted a highly modified 
policy, which would strengthen the safety precautions they 
already had while still allowing male visitors. Again we were 
refused the right. The only reason given this time, however, 
was as follows: "It would be in the best interest of the student 
body not to have such a policy in effect." 

We have twice gone through the established channels, and 
both times we have been turned down. Now we demand the 
rights to which we are entitled, not as women, but as people. 

All we ask for is for equal visitation rights. The Administra- 
tion sees this as a "responsibility which we are not yet mature 
enough to accept." It is not a responsibility, but a right we are 
being denied. 

It has been said by a member of the administrative staff 
that Delaware Valley College has not declared itself a coed 
school, but is a male school accepting female applicants. They 
do not recognize us as coeds. Therefore, if you follow their 
line of reasoning, Cooke Hall is not the coeds' dorm, and 
should be treated the same as any other dorm on campus. 

We are planning action, and this action will be continued 
until our demands are met. Our choice of behavior may seem a 
bit extreme, but we have been forced by the Administration to 
take extreme action to obtain simple rights. We ask for no 
more, but will accept no less, than what is rightfully ours. 

The following are the present hours for Open Door in the 
men's dormitories: 

4 - 10 PM Mon-Thurs 
4 - 2 AM Friday 
12 - 2 AM Saturday 
12 - 12 AM Sunday

Club News- Dairy Society 

BY DAVID CROOKE '74, Publications Officer 

The Delaware Valley College Dairy Society met on Tuesday 
April 10, 1973. The main event of the meeting was election of 
officers for next year. New officers elected are as follows: 
president, John Grice *74; vice president, David Crooke '74; 
annual editor, Gayle Berger '75; secretary, Cammy Wood '75; 
treasurer, Bob McCoy '74; "A" Day representatives, Ken 
Grube '75 and Dave Longenecker '75; and publications, Jed 
Beshore '76. 

"A" Day was also discussed at the meeting. Forty members 
have signed up to show cows on Saturday which promises to 
be one of the biggest shows ever. Jack Fairchild will be the 
judge, and the contest will be for fitting and showing. The 
main feature on Sunday will be the cow judging contest 
operated by the judging team. Other events at "A" Day will be 
a milkshake stand, a lab exhibit demonstrating feed analysis 
and dairy cattle evaluation techniques, and a calf exhibit. 

The dairy club trip will be Friday April 13 and Saturday 
14. Forty members will be traveling by bus to Virginia 
Polytech Institute in Blackburg, Virginia. We will tour several 
farms on the way down, have a joint dinner with the V.P.I, 
dairy club, and tour their facilities. 

Pool Hall Policy 

BY BARRY HASSLER, Pool Hall Manager 

The pool hall facilities are under the jurisdiction of Student 
Government and a function subordinate to the Recreation 
Committee. The pool hall provides a form of recreation, and 
service to the student body. In order to keep these facilities 
open and available for use, it has been necessary to establish 
certain rules. The rules are as follows: 

1. The pool hall will be open on a 24 hour basis, unless 
vandalism necessitates its closing. 

2. All functions within the pool hall will be under the 
direction of its manager, and in coordination with the 
Recreation Committee. 

3. Any damage to the facilities, not within the normal 
course of depreciation, will necessitate the closing of the 
facilities and the imposition of fines. If for any reason the 
closing period should extend past the time of one week, it will 
necessitate the approval of the Damage Committee. 

The Student Government budget of $500/year covers the 
purchase of new supplies, and the annual refelting of the 
tables. With the addition of the table from Lasker Hall, has 
come increased use of the pool hall facilities. Often all the 
tables are in use till 2 or 3 A.M. Students take a break from 
their studying by shooting a game of pool. Increased use of the 
tables has caused them to wear faster. This usage necessitates 
refelting the tables once a semester, which makes meeting the 
budget even mordifficult, without the occurence of senseless 
and needless damage. 

The pool hall is the only recreational facility open to the 
students 24 hours a day. Let's try to keep it that way!

Time T« Fly 


About a month ago I attended j| 
the Founder's Day Convocation, an 
annual gathering held here at Del- 
Val to honor the founder of this 
institution. It is a gay pageant with 
board members, faculty, adminis- 
tration, staff, students, and their 
friends. Much ado was given to the 
growth of the physical plant of 
Del- Val, but not a word was men- 
tioned about the student body. It 
seems as though bigger and better 
buildings are the main concern; but 
how about the students who oc- 
cupy those buildings? 

Any business operation must 
continue to relate to its consumers 
in order to function. This function 
is performed in most enterprises by 
directors who constantly strive to 
unearth the natural progressive 
changes in the society which they 
serve. How then can the directors 
of this institution expect Del-Val to 
survive much longer, when very few 
attempts are made to establish a 
viable communications network be- 
tween the student body and the 

Very simply - the Board of Trustees of this college doesn't 
know what the Hell is going on here (at least they never 
indicate that they do). I really wish I were wrong, but nobody 
can seem to show me my error. Samuel Golden, a Board 
member, put it in a nutshell: ". . .a bunch of fellows [Board of 
Trustees] from different worlds, different ideas, different 
thoughts, different backgrounds [from the Student Body] . . ." 
Question — How can people from different worlds, ideas, 
thoughts, and backgrounds even consider themselves qualified 
to direct policies which affect this student body? Decision- 
making at this level can not possibly be proper without a 
direct communications network (which we don't have). As it is 
now, the Board of Trustees makes its decisions by relying very 
heavily on the opinion of Dr. James Work, our President. Dr. 
Work virtually lives in Florida during the school year. On rare 
occasions Dr. Work is on campus (usually a few days before 
Board meetings and this year during accreditation). He is 
usually found in his office in Lasker Hall. Even his absence 
would not be so bad, if he tried to communicate with the 
student body. Attempts at communication have not been 
made for the three years I have been here, except for the form 
letters sent to Freshmen and Graduating Seniors. 

Dr. James Work has been President of this institution for 
the past 26 years without taking a penny; he has seen it grow 
from an infant to its present adolescent stage. Most of what we 
are today is related to Dr. Work's fund-raising abilities and 
careful direction. But there is one more stage to growth 
though — adulthood. Del-Val, as an institution, has not yet 
reached maturity. The directors have concentrated on en- 
couraging the growth of our physical plant, the expansion of 
our faculty, and the development of our staff. There is another 
constituent which unfortunately is seemingly being ignored — 
the student body. Maybe we are last on the list, but this 
college will never mature without the administrative en- 
couragement of, and response to, the evolution of the student 
body. Del-Val is just like an adolescent; the arms and feet are 
out of proportion to the rest of the body. If everything 
doesn't catch-up the person remains clumsy and disabled for 
the rest of his life. In the same light — if the existence of an 
evolving student body is not soon recognized — Del-Val will 
remain a clumsy and disabled institution. 

This school may be "your baby" Dr. Work but there comes 
a time for all parents to encourage independence. Encourage 
the participation of a student on the Board of Trustees, so you 
can have a direct connection with the student body when 
questions relating to us arise. Even when the topics don't 
directly relate to students, would not the ideas of our 
generation be of interest? Let us learn from one another. 
Better yet employ administrators who you feel are qualified to 
make policy decisions relating to students, or present that 
power to existing administrators (after all they will always be 
in contact with students). 

Del-Val is ready to try its pair of wings; not to fly away, 
just to rise progressively higher to attain new levels Why are 
you holding us back? You will agree — just come to us and 
listen! Sit back, see what kind of father you have been, and 
always - always stay right where you are. Del-Val owes its life 
to you.

To The Ram from Dr. Orr - 

Dear Dr. On: 

Thank you for your donation of some chemical literature 
(unbound duplicate journals) to the Wilkes College library. 
While our losses have been tremendous, we have been 
encouraged by the hundreds of responses to our letter of July 
17 which were greater than we ever anticipated. We are indeed 
grateful to our colleagues for their offers of assistance in 
rebuilding our library holdings. 

On behalf of the students and faculty at Wilkes, please 
accept our thanks for your generous offer and for your 
interest and concern for the College.

Del - hi Coeds Protest Inequality 

Intelligencer Staff Writer 
Reprinted with permission from Page 1 of the April 9, 1973 
issue of The Daily Intelligencer, Doylestown, Pa. 

Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture stu- 
dents are expected to congregate in Cooke Hall tonight to 
demonstrate "anger, frustration and disappointment" to the 
board of trustees. 


To The Editor: 

I have read with interest the recent issues of The Ram and 
have noted the sense of disquietude and dissatisfaction which 
has inspired some writers to contribute their efforts to the 
College newspaper. I have also noted that the serious minded 
student who is seeking a good education and is pleased and 
proud of the progress the College has made over the years is 
seldom heard from. 

Startingly conspicuous by its absence from every issue of 
The Ram was any reference whatsoever to the newsworthy 
reaffirmation of accreditation of Delaware Valley College by 
the Commission of Higher Education of the Middle States 
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. 

The Commission reevaluates every accredited college at ten 
year intervals in order that standards of its member institu- 
tions are maintained. 

Dedicated members of the Faculty, Administration and 
Board of Trustees of Delaware Valley spent several years 
preparing for the visitation of the committee of professional 
evaluators which took place in November 1972. 

The long-awaited results of their study arrived by letter 
dated March 6, 1973 from Elizabeth J. McCormack, Chairman 
of the Commission. With pride I quote from this letter. "It is a 
pleasure to advise you that the Commission has voted to 
reaffirm the accreditation of the Delaware Valley College of 
Science and Agriculture. This action reflects the confidence of 
your colleagues in the contribution you are making to higher 
education and their belief that you will continue to strive to 
improve the quality of education offered by the Delaware 
Valley College of Science and Agriculture." 

Shouldn't this be the most significant progress the College 
can make? Isn't this what it's all about? 

Jean H. Work 
Administrative Assistant 

To the Editor: 

This letter is to some of the cheap students who drive cars 
and are so afraid of getting raped by a freshman male student 
who is hitchhiking right out in front of Alumni Hall. I am a 
freshman male student who is pretty sick of being passed by 
D.V.C. students when I am thumbing. You think that even out 
of decency a student could pick up a fellow student, but no, 
some people are too cheap and would not stoop to such a low 
level. But I'd like to thank all those S.O.B.'s, and I'll remember 
them if I ever see them in the same situation. 

Name Withheld 

Launched by the coed campus population, the demonstra- 
tors seek visitation rights in their sole dormitory equal to those 
enjoyed by male students throughout their eight dorms. 

A sit-in is set to begin at 6:30 in front of the college 
cafeteria, with students occupying the ground floor of Cooke 
Hall until midnight, or "until the point is made — the point 
being to register the legitimacy of the grievance and the scope 
of campus support. 

Students will bring books, snacks and a pillow to sit on. 
Girls' rooms will be locked. Upstairs rooms may be open for 
student study. 

Current campus regulations forbid any male to enter Cooke 
Hall at any time. 

Since September 1972 women have been granted visiting 
privileges in the men's residences during prescribed hours every 
day of the week. 

DelVal coeds, whose names are withheld, explained their 
dilemma Saturday. 

"What we're doing tonight is the only thing we can do — 
it's the only avenue open to us," they said. 

The group has twice requested visitation privileges from the 
board through the student government, in October 1972 and 
again in February. Both petitions were rejected. 

"The reasons given for initial rejection were safety precau- 
tions," the girls said. Acknowledging the board's concern, the 
group resubmitted a modified petition which curbed the scope 
of their visitation privileges. 

This was rejected in a three-line letter dated March 6 and 
sent to the student government. No explanation was offered. 

Student body president, Murray Klein, sent a letter of 
appeal to the board last week asking them to reconsider their 
decision. No official response has been forthcoming. 

"We're people," said the spokesmen. "We're the same as the 
guys on campus. We want to be treated the same." 

The girls say they have had no verbal communication with 
the board nor do they have that opportunity. The spokesmen 
said they do not know their trustees' names or when and 
where they meet. 

"We're told by our advisers 'the trustees know best," said 
the girls. "We're told they are running successful business and 
corporations and therefore they know how to run a college. 
This is not logical. 

"Education is not a big business." 

40 On Campus 

Women have lived on Del-Val campus since Septemter 
1972. There are approximately 40 on-campus coeds with 
another 30 off campus. Male enrollment is over 1,000. 

"The guys are being discriminated against as much as the 
girls," the spokesmen said. "They want visitation privileges for 
us too. But they're not pushing us as has been contended. We 
want visitation rights." 

The girls have reverted to their initial request for visitation 
privileges equal to male students' rights. They feel the majority 
of students will support the demonstration tonight. They also 
feel that the faculty is in sympathy with their cause. 

In an open letter referring to the sit-in, the coeds asserted, 
"Our choice of behavior may seem extreme, but we have been 
forced by the administration to take extreme action to obtain 
simple rights.

Board Interview 


Below are partial contexts of conversations I had with 
various Board Members a few weeks ago. I asked them if, as 
members of the Board of Trustees of Del-Val, they would 
approve the addition of a student to the Board as a non-voting 


"Well, I'll tell ya, that's a very good question. I only have 
one problem. The members of the Board, ya know, of Trustees 
are in a position where they cater to the welfare of the college 
overall. You know what I mean. In other words our big job is 
not to mix in to the administration of the college. But we are 
to do all we can to raise additional funds to keep the college, 
you know, in good shape, and to make decisions that would be 
for the good and welfare of the students in the best interests 
of our ability. We are not mixing in with the administration 
because then nobody knows who's what, what's who, you 

"Now the administration reports to us what's going on at 
every board meeting. So we get a pretty good idea. Then we 
invite the president of your student council to come in and 
talk to us. And he comes and tells us good, bad and different, 
or whatever it is. So that we have a good knowledge of what's 
goin on where we can make a decision where we can help out 
and make their lives better. 

"Now when it comes to whether a student should be on the 
Board of Trustees, there again we are in the position to answer 
that we must leave this to the administration. In other words, 
the Board does not take an interest. No I used the wrong 
word. The Board does not take an initiative in this type of 
question. Because we feel the administration is the one who 
should make that decision. Now if the administration comes to 
us and says that the President of the Student Body or the 
student body have written a letter. I remember a couple of 
years ago when the student body wrote a letter 'Dear Board 
members we'd like to have open door policy' you know. Well. 

"This is such a beautiful letter we said O.K. We concur — 
Now it's up to the President to decide how much open door he 
wants, or how much little open door he wants. You know. But 
we concurred you know. Now if there is a letter that reaches 
us at a Board meeting that says we the Student Council or 
what have you, and so on by unanimous this and that, and 
that request that (It should always be diplomatic, you get 
more through oil than vinegar, you know) that we feel that we 
would like to have one of our students as ex-officiary 
(couldn't be a regular member cause he couldn't raise any 
money). So he'd have to be ex-officiary or something. Well, 
now, I myself can't make that decision. I can't because the 
administration makes these decisions. And the administration 
comes to us and says the student body wrote a letter. We read 
it. Then we have to take a vote on it. Even if we agree, the 
President still has the right — just like President Nixon has the 
right — to make the final decision. 

"This is the way it works, otherwise you have chaos. So it's 
not a question of denying, or not wanting the kids to have 
anything like that. I say kids because I'm a senior citizen. I 
don't mean really kids — really college boys. By the way, I 
know when the accreditation committee sent us an evaluation 
of the college, they had a chapter about you boys. They said 
they're the nicest bunch of kids they've ever seen. Very 
wonderful. Highly disciplined. Ready to cooperate and take 
advantage of the great education that this college offers for a 
small student body with a terrific staff and terrific sophisti- 
cated equipment. I work close with Penn State, Cornell, all the 
land grant colleges' 30, 40 thousand students. Nobody knows 
who's what. Here you got your agricultural hall, your chemical 
hall. If a guy wants to learn something, he doesn't want to get 
too worried about how many girls he can love, and stuff like 
that, you know, he could really learn like hell. Because it's 
really there. Compared to when I was a student we had 
nothing but horse economy and manure to spread and work to 
do and so on. That's the way it was Mr. Mandel. 

"So if you want to quote me, the quotation is that you 
called me and that I say that whatever the students desire 
should make it known in some letter to the Board. But the 
administration makes the final decision. Dr. Work and his staff 
have to make all final decisions regarding the student requests. 
Cause we of the Board, our big interest, is to listen and to 
learn from them and do what we can to lend our approval to 
the President. Or our disapproval, see? Then he is the one who 
has to make the decision. If the student body has any desire 
for something I think that the diplomatic way is, somebody sit 
down and write a nice letter to Dr. Work to kindly present 
their thoughts, and he will read it to us. Then there's some 
discussion, and if the Board says they concur, fine. Whatever it 
is, Dr. Work and the administration make the decision. I want 
to go on record on that. Please don't misquote me, I think I 

gave it to you right on the line. Right? I'd like to get out more 
often to see the kids, go to the classrooms, even teach 'em. I'm 
in agriculture all my life. 

"Mr. Croushore has had me as a teacher to his classes in 
animal nutrition, but when it comes to mixing into the 
administration welfare of the college, I find after studying 
other colleges that the best man to decide what's what is the 
President of the college and his staff. Diplomacy is the big 
factor. A very respectful suggestion would be to write out 
your thoughts — the student body has thoughts — you're 
young, yet maybe you're right, maybe you're wrong — but 
maybe you're asking a hell of a lot to be on the Board of 
Trustees because you sit there and you meet a bunch of 
fellows from different worlds, different ideas, different 
thoughts, different backgrounds. You know what I mean. And 
you're too young to maybe understand what the meaning of it 
all. But if the meaning is dedicated to your best welfare that's 
the big thing isn't it? Now we do have your President of your 
Student Council — he's cordially invited to every meeting to 
come and talk to us. We listen to him and we don't send him 
home. We discuss what he talks to us. I'm on record that I 
can't give you an answer — the administration gives the answer 
— we'll be glad to listen. O.K.? I want you fellows to feel that 
we Board members, particularly we that graduated from the 
school, are devoted to your welfare, that's our whole life's 
work. But the kids don't know us. They don't know who we 
really are. And when I go out there, they don't even know I'm 
around. I graduated in '22 — you weren't even born then. You 
wouldn't believe it. I don't feel any older than the day I left 

"Nice to talk to you Mr. Mandel, and please don't misquote 
me. But the big idea is to say that I understand, and we feel 
very devoted to the boys — our whole life is dedicated to make 
your college a wonderful little college, a better college, and 
make your life better. We are not that young to understand all 
your problems, but we know what's going on. And then we're 
an indepentent school, a private school, and maybe we're not 
as liberal as Penn State or Princeton University where you can 
go to bed with every girl you want to. Maybe we're not that 
way. We have just a little better idea. We feel like we are 
parents. We want to take over where the parents left off. And 
be good fathers and mothers and aunts and uncles." 


"I see. Well, it would have to be taken through the Board. 
I'll be glad to listen and see what the Board has to think about 
it. I wouldn't want to make you a promise that we're going to 
do this or that. But we'll take it up with the Board and see 
what they have to say, that's all. I wouldn't want to make my 
mind up until I heard what the rest of them have to say." 
"Do you ever get a chance to come up here much?" 
"Oh, I get up there about a half-dozen times or more a 
year. I want to get acquainted with the students, and want to 
see them satisfied. You've eaten in the dining hall, haven't 
you? Well, that's my contribution." 


"I don't think I'd have one (comment) at this time. You've 
got your president who comes to the meetings now, doesn't 
he? Outside of that, at this time I wouldn't want to say 
anything. No. You do have some representation at this time as 
far as that goes. You already have somebody who sits on the 
Board meetings, or at least comes to the Board meetings and 
expresses the students' views." 

"By the way, what relation are you to our founder?" 



"Let me save us both a little time. I'd rather not give any 
comments without first having them cleared with Jim Work. Is 
he around at this moment?" 

"Not right now." 4 

"Well, I think it's a little bit delicate. I'd rather hear from 
him before I give any interviews and certainly over the 
telephone. I'm almost certain that he would not be pleased if I 
were to speak for a publication without first getting clearance 
with him. I'll call you back Mr. Mandel." 


"It hasn't been presented to me bofore, so I haven't really 
thought about it. My first reaction, and I'll give this off the 
top of my head, alright, would be that I certainly would not 
be against it. The better communication between the Board 
and the student body the better. That's my general thinking. 
Barring any valid arguments presented to the contrary that I'm 
not aware of, I would be, I would look on it with favor."

SI age Protest For Rights 

STUDENTS IN SUPPORT of Cook women mushroom to 300. Banner Reads "DVC — The uncollege, unprogressive, unconstitutional 

Intelligencer Staff Writer 
Reprinted with permission from Page 1 of the April 10, 1973 
issue of The Daily Intelligencer, Doylestown, Pa. 

"We have no say in policy-making. That's why this came 
about," said a male junior student at Delaware Valley College 
of Science and Agriculture following a peaceful demonstration 
at the school Monday night. 

A sit-in that mushroomed to 300 protesters according to 
student estimates, was staged in Cooke Hall coed dorm to 
protest coeds' lack of visitation rights. 

The women are asking for visiting privileges equal to those 
enjoyed by their male campus counterparts since September 

The coeds are demanding visiting hours in their dorm from 
4 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. 
Friday; noon to 2 a.m. Saturday; and noon to midnight 

Students ended their demonstration at 9 p.m. Spokesmen 
said they "had planned to occupy the hall until as late as 

Twenty protesters who longered [sic] in Cooke Hall lounge 
following the demonstration voiced afterthoughts. 

A coed said, "If we take less than what the guys have, we 
will be accepting less than our rights." This was in reference to 
a position the group has adopted to refuse any modified 
visitation rights proposal. 

The coeds had submitted a modified petition to the board 
of trustees in February which curbed the scope of their 
visitation privileges. It was dismissed in a three-line letter dated 
March 6 and sent to the student government. No explanation 
was offered. 

Another coed maintained, "We pay the same money as the 



"Well, I couldn't give you any advice. I didn't visit the 
college already for two years. I'm on the Board for some 
reason or other — they should take me off the Board. I am for 
two years, didn't visit the college. I get literature here, and I 
would love to help you. I don't know what's going on there. I 
receive only invitations to come to meetings, and I couldn't 
make it. That's been already going on for two years. I don't 
think they miss me very much. For two years nobody inquires 
why I'm not coming. Besides, the secretary sends me a note, 
that's enough for me. I was there for quite a few years on the 
Board, and I think I did a lot of things for them. I like the 
school very much, but they are not interested in me so I felt 
like I'm — something — 1 don't know, just another name on 
the Board." 

guys do, we deserve the same rights. We want the same 

They Made Mistake' 

"It — visiting rights — is a right we should have had from 
the beginning," said another. "They (administration) made a 
mistake shutting us up in this dorm, locked in at night. They 
should treat us as people." 

A male senior who participated in the sit-in said he had put 
his graduation in jeopardy by supporting the protest. He said 
he came "because this school's been too backward for too 
long. It's about time for a change." He added, he did not 
expect recrimination from the administration. 

The students said three members of the administration 
made attempts to curtail the protest. Students quoted Mrs. 
Evelyn Porter, adviser to women, as having said, 'If you have 
men in Cooke's hallways you are knowingly breaking the rules. 
This is no longer a peaceful demonstration." 

Joseph Fulcoly, dean of students, allegedly said, 'If I were 
one of you seniors, I wouldn't participate.' Students inter- 
preted this as a threat against potential graduates. 

Students said Mrs. Porter and Fulcoly and a third adminis- 
trator, Robert Tasker, assistant dean of students manned the 
entrances to Cooke Hall. Students said they issued threats of

Hie students said they ignored them politely and entered 

(For the first time in 20 years, Delaware Valley College 
officials barred an Intelligencer photographer from a campus 
building and threatened arrest for trespassing. Dr. James Work, 
college president, was not available for comment on the action 
by Fulcoly. He is out of the area.) 

Fulcoly Declines Comment 

This morning Fulcoly, dean of students, replied, "No 
comment at this time" to reporter's queries on peacefulness of 
the demonstration, legitimacy of students' demands or possi- 
bility of recrimination against male students who violated a 
school regulation by entering the halls of the coed dorm. He 
estimated the protesters "closer to 200" than the 300-strong 
student estimate. 

The demonstration started at 6:30 p.m. One coed said 
about 6:20 there were only 12 to 15 guys assembled . . . "then 
people just started coming and coming ... we were 300 strong 
by the time we got to the hall ... It was really great to feel all 
those people behind us." 

One student said, "We really like this school, but we want 
to change it. They (administration) are hung up on tradition." 

Student body president Murray Klein received a letter from 
Dr. Work Monday morning. Coming in response to Klein's 
request that the board of trustees reconsider the coeds 
modified proposal for visitation proposals, the president said 
the board would reconsider the measure April 28. 

Now students are saying "it's too late." They do not want 
to wait that long and they do not want the modified rights. 

A male junior said, "We have no communication or say on 
anything. We just put a biU through student council and it 
comes back, usually with a 'no' on it." 

Students said they plan no specific follow-up to the 
demonstration until they receive word from the administra- 

They discussed massive petitioning and the possibility of 
submitting a new proposal for visitation privileges. 

A spokesman said students feel the purpose has been

iridic Stales' Evaluation 


We have received many requests for information about 
Del-Val's recent reaccreditation by the Commission on Higher 
Education, Middle States Association of Colleges and Second- 
ary Schools. Following is a report of the findings of the 
commission. Many thanks are extended to Dr. Winton Tolles, 
Assistant to the President, for his help in preparing this article. 

The team who visited Del-Val from November 12 through 
November 15, 1972 was headed by John J. Theobald, 
Executive Vice President of the New York Institute of 
Technology. Other members were Edward J. Malloy, Jr., Dean 
of Students, Union College, Schenectady, New York; Leonard 
Cohan, Professor and Director of Libraries at the Polytechnic 
Institute of Brooklyn; Joseph Finkelstein, Professor of History 
and Economics at Union College; Mrs. Helen W. Gjessing, 
Associate Professor of Biology, College of the Virgin Islands; 
Stanley M. Holberg, Professor of English at St. Lawrence 
University; Richard Merritt, Associate Dean, Professor of 
Horticulture, Rutgers University; and Anthony Procelli, Vice 
President for Business Affairs and Treasurer Hofstra Univer- 
sity. Samuel Marcus, an Associate in Higher Education from 
the Pennsylvania Bureau of Planning also worked with the 

Dr. W. Mertz, from Del-Val, spent about one year, with a 
team from Del-Val, working on a self-evaluation. So - What 
did the team have to say? 

In general the team believes that Del-Val is doing a fine job, 
below are some of their ideas and comments. 

The Programs in Plant and Animal Science 

In overall terms it was felt that the program was excellent. 
The faculty are competent and equipment and facilities 
excellent. Students and faculty feel that emphasis on develop- 
ment of writing skills should also be stressed. In the future 
they suggest an Equine Science and Laboratory Animal option 
in Animal Husbandry, and an Arbor Culture option in 

The Programs in Chemistry and Biology 

The team considers the division very well run and viable. 
There is general praise for the freedom extended by the 
department heads in the planning and running of the courses, 
and the team teaching method used in General Biology and 
General Chemistry. They consider students in this area a bit 
above the average for the college at large. They continue by 
saying that, unfortunately, admission to veterinary schools 
today is at least as difficult as admissions to medical schools. 
Our faculty has realized this and is working on the develop- 
ment of alternative tracks. For example, ecology, converva- 
tion, wildlife management, pollution control and marine 
biology are considered viable alternatives. 

The American Chemical Society requirements in chemistry 
tend to discourage those who wish to enter high school 
teaching, small business operation, laboratory technology, 
experimental agriculture, and the like. They suggest therefore 
that a less rigid chemistry major also be offered. 

The Business Administration Program 

The team complimented Mr. West, chairman, as being 
young, able, energetic and a man who has accomplished a great 
deal in a short time. Business has not yet fully sharpened its 
objectives; in some respects trying to do too much, and in 
others too little. The time has come to make a decision as to 
whether to follow the traditional business pattern or create a 
unique position, offering a program pointed specifically at the 
needs of the "small" business man, rather than toward the 
development of specialists. 


The Admissions Office 

The team had nothing but praise tor the Admissions office, 
Mr. Craver, and the staff. The office develops about three 
times as many applicants as are finally matriculated. This is 
rather good preformance for a college of this type. 

The Office of the Registrar 

The office, in general, does a fine job. It may, however, be 
at a point, staff-wise, where an extended illness of one of the 
staff could seriously handicap it in its work. This problem 
should be examined. 

The Office of the Dean of Students 

This office handles personal problems and does some 
academic counseling, but it is still regarded by some students 
as disciplinarian in concept. This will have to be overcome 
before its effectiveness can be achieved. 

The Director of Placement 

Mr. McClelland also has the responsibility for Public 
Relations. Despite this apparent dilution of effort, he does an 
excellant job. 

Physical Education 

There is a well developed intramural program. The facilities 
are well used, thoroughly adequate, and efficiently operated. 

When we realize that 51% of entering freshmen have won 
their varsity letters while at high school, the importance of 
both varsity and intramural programs becomes evident. 

The influx of women to the campus will present new 
problems. Facilities for women are still scant. 

Financial Aid 

Financial aid is provided to 499 students on an average of 
$850 per student. The college's efforts to solicit more black 
students from the high schools in Philadelphia may require 
significant expansion of this office. 

Student Government 

In the overall sense, the student activities program at 
Del-Val is a good one. It is a bit more regulated than at many 
other institutions, but the authorities see the program, in part, 
as an instructional tool. This concept is working and should be 
applauded . . . but it does also call for constant attention to 

Students feel that there is a lack of communication beyond 
the level of the faculty advisor and the Dean of Students. This 
is not an unusual situation and rarely responds to the mere 
setting up of "opportunities to be heard." It is much more 
likely to reflect such things as a lack of "feed back" on what 
happens to our recommendations after they are made. A 
possible lack of adequate involvement at the level of our 
department majors, a failure to quietly sound out student 
opinion before changes are made, and the like. 

There are also some complaints in the area of social life: 
longer visiting hours, liquor on campus, matching curfews, and 
concern with regard to such matters as the present "quality 
point" grading system, wages for summer employment, etc. 
Without in any way "pooh poohing" student concerns, these 
seem to be relatively minor matters. A more active approach 
by the Dean of Students is suggested. Solutions to these 
problems could do much to prevent what is now minor unrest 
from someday becoming critical. 


In the next five years Del-Val plans to limit enrollment 
increases to no more than 25% (a total of I 250 students). 

The only new offering which is being considered is the 
possibility of a nurse's training and paramedical program in 
cooperation with the hospital which will be built next to the 


General Studies 

The fact remains that most of the students and perhaps 
even the faculty look upon the general studies as a necessary 
chore. The general studies teaching staff looks upon itself as 
playing a "second class citizen" role Unless this kind of 
attitude can be overcome, it is difficult to see how the 
program can be improved.

May 11.1973 


The curriculum should be reviewed with the idea of 
creating a program more meaningful to students in the modern 
era, team teaching, greater student choice, supervised and 
independent study, and the like. Greater emphasis should be 
placed on the use of the library. This could be done on a 
relatively free rather than "narrowly" assigned basis. 

In a letter which was sent to the committee, Dr. Work said 
that "every effort will be made to effect changes in the 
attitude of some faculty members and some students towards 
the field of General Studies . . ." 


All and all it was a fine evaluation by the commission. 
Del-Val has the major framework set. Now that we have been 
rated as good as other colleges let's try to be better. As we say 
good-bye to this school year, I look toward the next as 
another year of growth. As a student, 1 really hope that 
communications improve. Within the past few weeks Jack 
Facciola, newly elected president of Student Government, 
received word that he may now discuss issues with The Board 
of Trustees (a one-sided report was all previously permitted). 
As students we are slowly progressing, hopefully we will gain a 
bit more respect from the administrators and Board. Hopefully 
the administrators and Board will gain a bit more respect from 
us. We both don't have it. We both have to earn it.

On March 24, 1973, after several years of hard work, Mr. 
Thomas Zimmerman received his doctorate degree from Penn 
State. His thesis was entitled "The Effect of Amendment, 
Compaction, Soil Depth, and Time on Various Physical 
Properties of Physically Modified Hagerstown Soil." 

Dr. Zimmerman was involved with his doctorate thesis since 
1968. Prior to that, he leceived his B.S. at Ohio State in 1966, 
and his Masters at Penn State in 1969. He came to Del Val's 
Agronomy Department in September, 1971 . 

At Del Val, Dr. Zimmerman is involved in the Soil 
Conservation Society and Soil Judging. He is also the Associate 
Director of the Bucks County Conservation District, and a 
member of the American Society of Agronomy, the Soil 
Science Society of America, the Soil Conservation Society of 
America and the Pennsylvania Turf Grass Council. 

On behalf of the Soil Conservation Society, the Agronomy 
Club, and the Agronomy faculty, we would like to congratu- 
late you, Dr. Zimmerman.

Under the experienced, watchful eye of youthful head 
coach, John Silan, DVC has constructed an impressive 7-1 
record in the Middle Atlantic Conference thus far this season. 

If the Aggies sweep their remaining three crucial games, 
they will be assured of a sole first place finish in the Northern 
Division MAC. Those tests will be against Washington College, 
away, May 3rd and a home twinbill encounter with Juniata on 
May 5th. 

In addition to an early season twinbill sweep of Susque- 
hanna University, all other Aggie victories have been single 9 
inning tests, highlighted by big wins over previously unbeaten 
Philadelphia Textile and Upsala College. The loan Aggie loss 
was recorded at the hands of struggling Ursinus College at 
Collegeville, Pa. 

Many important factors have been attributed to the green 
and gold success story, hjustle, experience, depth, morale, 
coaching, but perhaps most important, individual per- 
formances have set the winning tempo for this year's team. 
Among the leaders are highly talented, pro prospect, pitcher 
Bob Polinsky, both defensive and offensive standouts; Captain 
Dave Ferenchick, Andy Timko and Wayne Remo, and the 
club's leading hitter Kevin Foster.

There has been much interest paid in the last several years 
to assisting students in search of summer employment. A good 
summer job can be an outlet for individual creativity, and is a 
traditional source of many learning experiences. The money 
earned also helps students and their families with the soaring 
costs of education. 

This year (Summer 1973) we invite all students to apply to 
us for summer employment which we feel will be both 
interesting and rewarding. As stated above, we now anticipate 
tours to Hawaii, and to the wilderness area of Utah and 
Arizona. Students will be hired as Tour Assistants. They will 
perform a number of functions in administration, planning, 
passenger assistance, and leisure activities.

For both young men and young women, hair can be any 
length. Emergency medical care will be provided if needed 
while in our employ. We suggest applying as soon as possible 
for these positions. If two or more students desire to spend the 
summer working together, we will do our best to schedule this 
when informed. It is not necessary that you work the entire 
summer, i.e., it is perfectly alright to work part of the summer 
and then fulfill other personal plans such as summer school, 
traveling, etc. We are an equal opportunity employer and all 
young men and young women are encouraged to apply by 
writing the address below. When writing to request an 
employment application, it is very important to also enclose a

Bulletin- Jets Sip Finite 


Two weeks ago Jim Foote, Delaware Valley's starting 
quarterback and punting specialist, signed with the New York 
Jets as a punter. He was the first Aggie drafted by New York, 
and only the second player to hit pro status from Delaware 
Valley. Earlier scouting reports gave Foote expectations of 
either Dallas or San Diego. Instead Jim Foote reports July 10 
to the Jets' summer camp at Hofstra University. 

Foote was the only punter drafted by the Jets. Steve 
O'Neill, their present starting punter, has been having trouble 
with his knees. Since his rookie season when he replaced Curly 
Johnson, O'Neill has been having problems The Jets also 
expressed interest in Foote when they learned of his experi-

at Does It Mean? 


This year, for the first time, Delaware Valley College 
released its financial statement. In an effort to let the students 
know how their tuition and fees are spent, The Ram asked Dr. 
Work's office to clarify some sections of the statement. He has 
graciously replied. 

The Ram hopes that the statement of Income and 
Expenditures, and the accompanying explanations will help 
the student body understand how the College spends its

Departmental Research and Contract Research is the expense 

for the research the school conducts. There doesn't seem 

to be much research going on. 
Library - This is the cost of running the library and probably 
includes the librarians' salaries. 
Educational Plant - Operation and Maintenance - It costs 

money to keep the buildings from falling apart and the 

crabgrass from taking over, and this is how much it 

Appropriation to Plant Funds for Debt Retirement and Debt

COMMENT, an editorial view 


During the fiscal year 1972-73, Delaware Valley spent 
$8,697.93 more than it received as income. It is not unusual 
for non-profit organizations to spend more than they take in, 
but over several years the organization must break even. When 
a budget for a coming year indicates that there will be a 
deficit, then fees may have to be raised. The college's deficit 
for last year was not quite three-tenths of one-percent. That 
means that the college spent three-tenths of one-percent more 
than it took in as income. 

An examination of the College's Income and Expense 
Statement is revealing in several ways. 

First, the College gets very little outside support. Probably 
ten per cent and not more than fifteen per cent of Del Val's 
income comes from sources not directly related to College 
activities. In fact, in future years the College can probably 
expect less and less outside support. At present, state 
appropriations and student aid, the two biggest sources of 
outside funds, contribute only a little more than six per cent 
of Del Val's income. State appropriations may decrease as a 
result of Federal spending cutbacks. 

So from whom does the college receive its operating funds 1 
The answer, of course, is from the students and their parents 
and from loans that are secured by the students for their 
tuition. In fact, about 85 per cent of the College's curreni 
fund income comes from tuition, fees and payments for room 
and board. Although no comparison can be made with other 
private colleges, the students' financial support of the college 
seems extremely high. 

For a college such as Delaware Valley, the current trend 
toward delaying or abandoning higher education could be 
disasterous. The costs of running a college continue to climb, 
necessitating an increase in tuition. Fewer students also means 
increasing tuition, because the faculty still must be paid and 
buildings maintained, regardless of student enrollment. 

Of course some expenses can be pared - programs can be 
cut, teachers released; but these actions can only hurt the 
college. I am in no position to make recommendations, as is no 
student, but one entry of the statement disturbs me. Organ- 
ized Educational Activities loses money - the farms, the dairy, 
the greenhouses, the orchards, are losing money. Surely these 
activities could be managed in such a way that they could, as a 
group, at least break even. 

All of us, students, faculty, and administration, should 
think about the education and the services the students receive 
at Delaware Valley. If a tuition increase comes, how many 
more potential students will decide that Delaware Valley is 
simply too expensive. Students are consumers of the College's 
educational services; a college education is becoming less a 
privilege and more an economic consideration on the part of 
the student,

Senior Doubles 

Warren Curt in, a graduating senior this year, is holding two 
jobs. Mr. Curtin is not only a full time Aggie, but also has 
recently purchased the Fill-Brook Garden Center. Fill-Brook 
Center is located about one mile south of Doylestown on 
Route 61 1 across from the Barn Cinema. He carries a beautiful 
line of shrubs and trees, including many species not usually 
found. Roses and annual bedding plants also bedeck his 
exterior lot. Upon opening the doors one may find a large 
assortment of garden supplies including an ingenious method 
of displaying his tropical plant line. Also in the planning is a 
health and exotic food section which will be housed in an 
adjacent building recently damaged by fire! 

Jlw Ram congratulates Warren and encourages the support 
of all students and faculty. It is a job well done.

Soil Conservation Society 


The Soil Conservation Society and the Agronomy Club held 
their joint banquet on April 4th at the Collegeville Inn. In 
attendance were about 25 club members and their advisors, 
Dr. Prundeanu, Dr. Gold, and Dr. Zimmerman. There were 
two guests, Mr. Henry Nixon, Director of the Bureau of Plant 
Industry for the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture in 
Harrisburg, and Mr. Paul Weiss, President of the Philadelphia 
Association of Golf Course Superintendents in Philadelphia. 

Following a delicious Smorgasbord dinner, a presentation 
of certificates of scholarship awards on behalf of the Golf 
Course Superintendents of America was made by Mr. Weiss to 
two senior Agronomy majors. 

The recipients were Wayne Remo and Jeffrey Segan. 

Another student honored was Scott Cook, former president 
of the Agronomy Club, who received the Outstanding Senior 
Award from the American Society of Agronomy Student 
Activities Subdivision. 

The final event for the night was a slide presentation by Mr. 
Nixon. His topic dealt with the work and responsibilities of 
the Bureau of Plant Industry in the Commonwealth of 

Comments from students and advisors later reflected that 
all had a very enjoyable time at the 1973 Joint Banquet. 

Humane Leaders Med 


Eleanor Seiling, President of United Action for Animals, 
Inc., announced today that UAA is turning to the universities 
in an intensive search for young executive talent. "A new 
breed of humane leaders is needed," she said, "and they 
should come from the reservoir of well-educated young people 
now in our universities and about to embark upon their 
careers." She noted that historically almost all of the poeple in 
animal welfare work in general and laboratory animal work in 
particular are there because of a keen sense of injustice to 
animals and a high degree of motivation, but, she observed, 
"they lack both the ability to inform themselves adequately 
and the professionalism needed to solve complex problems." 

Miss Seiling is definite about the qualifications needed by 
candidates. "A broadly-based education is essential," she 
stated, "because anyone who is going to be effective in helping 
animals must develop a composite of many skills, including 
biology, law, advertising, public relations, and corporate 
administration. They must be adept at library research, 
competent analysts of what they read, and possess the ability 
to communicate articulately without being abrasively vocal." 
She said that a highly motivated person with a broad basic 
education can develop these skills, but that it would take time. 
Miss Seiling estimates that it would require four years of 
intensive on-th-job training with UAA to prepare a candidate 
for the "kind of executive leadership we envisage." 

The President of UAA pointed out that there exists a vital 
need for leaders of executive calibre in the field of animal 
welfare in general and laboratory animals in particular and that 
the rewards are great, personally and professionally. "But," 
she added, "candidates for this work must show a very high 
degree of motivation." Interested persons should write to 
United Action for Animals, Inc., 509 Fifth Avenue, New 
York, N.Y. 10017, giving full details, keeping in mind the 
qualifications outlined. 

The Summer 

To all members of the Del-Val Community - have a 
beautiful summer. After we have all separated, don't forget to 
take a few hours to think back over the past year. See what 
has been gained, what has been lost. Weigh the two, and make 
your decision. 

As for me, well, Del-Val is moving ahead slowly, (in relation 
to administrative support of an advancing student body) and 
in another 5 years it may catch-up. But it is moving, that's 
important. It's a fun game to watch, but only from the 
outside-looking in. Now it's your move my friends, your move. 
We've gotten to second base, bring us home. 

The answer, as it has always been, lies in the belief in a 
four-letter word. Try it you'll like it.
