From the Editor 

A New Buzzword 
"Leadership" has been the buzzword on campus this fall— 
and for good reason. 

A number of recent developments on campus 
underscore the College's new emphasis on leadership 
development for its undergraduates and for adult learners. 

All new students this fall underwent a six-week orienta- 
tion program which included several leadership develop- 
ment topics and featured a general introduction to the Col- 
lege, its offerings and expectations of students. 

In addition, the Executive Committee of the Board of 
TVustees has approved, on a trial basis, eighteen $5,000-a- 
year Presidential Leadership Scholarships, designed to at- 
tract to the campus students who are not only excellent 
scholars but who also possess leadership potential. Presi- 
dent Arthur L. Peterson explains: "Students selected for 
these 'premiere scholarships will be required to live on 
campus and demonstrate the qualities of campus and 
community leadership in their academic pursuits as well as 
in their extra-curricular activities." 

He also said a Leadership Development Institute has 
been created"to assist middle managers to improve their 
professional leadership effectiveness and to enrich their 
personal lives as well." And, he said, "plans call for the ad- 
ditional development of leadership programs for promis- 
ing high school students and for top executives, not only 
from South Central Pennsylvania, but from across the 
Northeast region."

FOURTEENTH 
PRESIDENT . 
INVESTED 




"A Celebration of Renewal" was the theme of this.year's Homecoming Weekend, 
which culminated on Sunday, October 14, with the inauguration of Dr. Arthur L. Peter- 
son as Lebanon Valley College's fourteenth president. 

The three-part inaugural began with morning worship followed by a lavish com- 
munity luncheon, then an investiture service in the College's Miller Chapel, during 
which Peterson received the ceremonial robe of office and k symbolic Presidential 
Collar. Later, guests congratulated the new president during a reception in the West 
Dining Room of the College Center, 

The Sunday morning Homecoming Worship, a joint service of the College and the 
Annville United Methodist Church, was led by the Reverend lere R. Martin '57, pastor 
of the Annville United Methodist Church. The Reverend Arthur W. Stambaugh '45, 
pastor of First United Methodist Church, Hershey, presented the sermon and Bishop 
Felton E. May of the Harrisburg Area of the United Methodist Church presented the 
morning prayers. 

E. Peter Strickler '47, treasurer of the College's Board of TYustees, presided at the 
luncheon, and Rabbi Louis Zivic of Beth Israel Synagogue-Center, Lebanon, 
presented the invocation. 

Several community representatives warmly welcomed the Petersons to Annville, 
the Lebanon Valley and South Central Pennsylvania. Among those present were: U.S. 
Representative Robert S. Walker: James A, Ream, president of the Pennsylvania 
Association of Colleges and Universities: Richard A. Zimmerman, president and chief 
executive officer of Hershey Foods Corporation: Pennsylvania State Senator David |. 
"Chip" Brightbill: State Representative George W Jackson: Rose Marie Swanger, chair- 
man of the Lebanon County Board of Commissioners: and Arthur 1. Riegert, presi- 
dent of the Annville Township Board of Commissioners.

At the investiture, Peterson was 
honored by Bishop F. Herbert Si<eet of 
the Philadelphia area of the United 
Methodist Church: F Allen Rutherford, 
|r '37, president of the i^banon Valley 
College Board of TYustees: Gerald D, 
Kauffman '44, first vice president of the 
Board: William H. Fairlamb, secretary of 
the faculty: George R, Marquette '48, 
vice president for student affairs: TYacy 
Lynn Wenger '85. president of the stu- 
dent council: and Robert A. Boyer 75, 
president of the alumni association, Dr 
Richard Berendzen, president of The 
American University Washington, D.C, 
was the guest speaker 

In his inaugural response, Peterson 
told the more than 750 people 
assembled that the College will "ad- 
dress rigorously the leadership im- 
perative" —the crying need for leader- 
ship development in all age groups— 
that he has a vision of LVC as the 
"Leadership College in America." 

"Some of you have heard me," he 
told the audience, "stress my belief that 
LVC, to me, means leadership based upon 
strong personal values, which creates a 
commitment to community. 

"Recently Frank Pace, a distinguish- 
ed American business and government 
leader wrote: 'Leaders are the molders 
and shapers of our society the agents 
of positive change. They set the tone, 
chart the way. A place awaits them in 
every institution, public or private, at 
many organizational levels . . . 

"Too often, that place goes unfilled. 
As we discovered recently at a Lebanon 
Valley Community Conference held 
here at the College, we call upon the 
same few leaders over and over again in 
our community to assume the burden 
of all the major responsibilities. And 
the same is unfortunately true in our 
college communities as well. 

"The simple fact is that the nation is 
not producing the number and quality 
of leaders its institutions and its com- 
munities need. At the same time our 
world grows increasingly complex and 
the demand for leaders grows 
exponentially 

"We need an organized approach 
for developing leadership capabilities. 
Our colleges and universities and 
secondary schools are ideally suited for 

The Valley 4

lates Dr Peterson 



this purpose but, for a variety of 
reasons, they have not yet responded 
sufficiently to this current, urgent need, 

"The latent capacity for leadership, 
present in varying degrees in all of our 
students, has not been formally ad- 
dressed and developed. Our national 
educational system that has created 
such a vast array of valuable formal pro- 
grams for developing gifted musicians, 
artists, writers, athletes, mathematicians 
and scientists, among others, has not 
yet set its sights squarely on the most 
vital discipline of all— leadership. 

"Consequently most students and 
many adults have little awareness of 
what leadership really means or of its 
importance. They have no grasp of the 
requirements and rewards of leader- 
ship.- They are not afforded oppor- 



tunities to make conscious choices in a 
pragmatic and rational way about 
leadership as a career option. For many, 
decisions to assume leadership roles in 
our society get missed by default and, 
as a result, an escape from freedom too 
often results— an escape which may 
take the form of simple neglect of ones 
obligation or a resort to mood altering 
substances— in simple terms, the abuse 
of drugs and alcohol. 

"I am excited on this occasion of our 
celebration of renewal because I am 
confident Lebanon Valley College will 
meet that leadership development 
challenge. In fact, we 
already have moved well down the path 
to becoming America's leadership col- 
lege . . 

"American higher education, par- 



ticularly small private colleges like 
Lebanon Valley College, face difficult 
financial problems in the years ahead- 
fewer traditional students, increasing 
costs, physical plants that are wearing 
out— and so to deal with both the 
wisdom of continuity and the need for 
change we must broaden our mission 
and broaden our market so that we 
help people of all ages become more 
competent and humane learners and 
leaders. 

"I have at this moment a very strong 
feeling of quiet confidence, confidence 
born of the kind of commitment I have 
felt here at LVC. Building upon the 
shoulders of the giants who have gone 
before us, I am fully confident we will 
meet our objective and we will serve 
our mission and we will serve it well."

LEADERSHIP 

Inaugural Address 

by Richard Berendzen, President 

The American University, 14 October 1984 

Lebanon Valley College, Annville PA 



// 



Who are they? Are they born or are they 
made? Would we know them if we saw 
them? Would we want them if we found 
them? All groups, whether chimps or 
children, companies or countries, have 
them. Yet, no one knows for certain how 
they come to be. They develop in 
multifarious ways and ultimately act ac- 
cordingly. Who are these people? They 
simply are the most influential, most 
famous, and most important among us. 
They are our leaders. 

Although scholars for millenia have 
studied leaders' characteristics, no 
general theory has emerged, no single 
prescription for how to become a leader 
or even how to recognize one. Hundreds 
of tawdry books purport to tell how, but, 
some things, so it seems, only come 
from within. 

Serious social scientists, writing arcane- 
ly on this ponderous topic, refer to 
"sociometric diagrams," "syntality," 
"expectancy-reinforcement theory role 
attainment," and "managerial grids," 
Even through such fog, however, some 
clarity can come. 

Leaders are likely to be 
self-confident, persistent, 
socially popular, verbally 
facile, dependable and 
highly active participators. 
They are goal oriented. 
They often take the in- 
itiative, have a deep desire 
to excel, and assume 
responsibility. They sense 
other people's wants and 
needs, sometimes even 
before the people do 
themselves. They know un- 
cannily well when to com- 
promise and when to be 
resolute. And, they have vi- 
sion. Edmund Burke claim- 
ed: "The great difference 




between the real states- 
man and the pretender is 
that the one sees into the 
future while the other 
regards only the present. 

Nineteen centuries ago, Tacitus noted 
that "reason and judgement are the 
qualities of a leader," Today we might 
add charisma. In our instant TV era, 
leaders need more than insight and 
knowledge, determination and compas- 
sion. They also need humor charm, and 
style. But whether in Pharonic Egypt, 
Homeric Greece, Caesarian Rome, Gup- 
tan India, T'angian China, Elizabethan 
England, Bolivarian republics, Marxist 
Russia, emerging Africa, or modern 
America, certain leadership charac- 
teristics hold: the ability to inspire, to 
challenge, to build confidence, and to 
create a sense of pride and hope. Gen- 



uine leadership is collective, a symbiotic 
relationship bonding leader and follower. 
And the highest forms of leadership 
elevate, asking followers to do more, to 
be better and even to sacrifice. "Ttue 
statesmanship," W, R, Alger asserted, "is 
the art of changing a nation from what it 
is into what it ought to be," 

Styles of leadership differ idiosyn- 
cratically, ranging from laissez-faire to 
democratic to autocratic. Some lead by 
example, others by exhortation, others 
by intimidation, still others by inspiration. 
Confucious observed that "the superior 
man is easy to serve and difficult to 
please," Disraeli said; "I must follow the 
people. Am I not their leader?" Cynics 
claim that events make the leader, not 
vice versa. 

Given all this, how do we 
recognize leadership? The 



The Valley 6 



ultimate test of practical 
leadership according to 
James McGregor Burns "is 
the realization of intended, 
real change that meets the 
people's enduring needs. " 

But if leadership is so vital and a leader 
so cardinal, how can we educate for 
leadership? Indeed, for that matter, how 
can we have leadership in education 
itself? just consider the need in educa- 
tion. A year and a half ago. a new 
publication came out. written not by a 
single author but a committee: published 
not by a scholarly press but by the U.S. 
Government Printing Office. A slim 
volume, with a blue cover, simple title, 
and shocking words: A Nation At Risfe. It 
said that there is a rising tide of 
mediocrity sweeping over our public 
schools. And it further asserted if a 
foreign power had done to us what we 
did to ourselves in education we might 
have viewed it as an act of war You might 
think such language is hyperbolic, yet the 
data support it. For the last quarter of a 
century the average standardized test 
scores across the nation have dropped. 
But there is more. In the past few years 
one quarter of all the recruits in the U.S. 
Department of Navy have been unable 
to read past the ninth grade level. And 
that is important, you see. because the 
Navy requires at least a ninth grade 
reading ability to understand safety in- 
structions in a modern American nuclear 
powered craft . . . not a theoretical prob- 
lem of the year 2000, but a real one now 
in 1984. 

But where do we turn to find the 
source of this educational malaise? 
Where has the leadership slackened? 
Frequently, teachers are blamed, 
because they are in the front lines and, 
sad to say many of them have failed. Yet, 
there is another side. For we find 
teachers given insufficient funds and 
crowded space and deteriorating 
physical plants, with students who are 
unruly or who do not come to class 
wanting to learn. We expect teachers to 
do too many things. They're expected to 
teach not only academic subjects but 
even social skills. They're to teach not on- 
ly reading and writing, but even a desire 
to learn itself. The inculcation of the 
basic desire to learn, the methodology 



for it, the self-discipline required for it. 
should have been learned first and best 
elsewhere ... at home, in church or 
synagogue, the boy scouts . . . 
somewhere, but not in the schools. 

To find the source of the educational 
problems, we need not look far from 
home. I fear the root of the problem lies 
in the home itself. Awhile back a study 
was made of National Merit Scholars, the 
nation's top high school seniors, to find if 
there was any single characteristic that 
would typify many or most of them. Did 
they come from the North or the South, 
the East or the West? Private or public 
schools? Were they male or female? 
Were they predominantly from one 
socioeconomic or ethnic group? All of 
those sorting characteristics and many 
others failed. The students were diverse 
and came from all sectors of the land 
and all strata of our society Of all of the 
diagnostics, only one correlated— not 
with the majority of the students in the 
study but literally with every one. What 
did all the National IVlerit Scholars have 
in common? All of them, almost every 
night, had evening dinner at home with 
their parents . . . presumably a time to 



discuss the day's events. This is a minor 
matter perhaps, one almost not worth 
noting. Yet, that is where learning begins. 
That is the heart of education . . . over 
dinner, with parents, at home, by example. 
Moreover, it illustrates the cardinal role 
of education in teaching leadership. 
There is but one way to teach leadership: 
by example. Not through exhortation, 
but by deed. We see this in homes. We 
see it in schools. We see it in personal 
lives. And, increasingly, we even see it in 
society generally 

In the last year and a half, mutually 
beneficial bonds have been built be- 
tween educational institutions and the 
rest of society Between the public 
schools and higher education. Between 
higher education and business, the news 
media, government, and many other sec- 
tors of society Some examples: Recently 
the Bank of Boston observed an anniver- 
sary by giving an endowment of $1.5 
million to the public schools, so that the 
interest from that fund will go in 
perpetuity to support public education 
in Boston. In Denver, the Safeway stores 
have donated more than one hundred 
computers to the public schools. In 




The Valley 7 



Dallas, a volunteer group has formed 
Positive Parents for Education, a support 
group for the public schools. And in Fair- 
fax County. Virginia, the superintendent 
of schools is working with local business 
and industry to create a major science 
and technology high school. Those 
bridges are long overdue and we need 
them desperately 

But what is needed even more— not 
only in education but in all of American 
life— is a deep, abiding commitment to a 
personal, institutional, and even national 
sense of pride. For with pride, we will 
resolve not to permit educational stan- 
dards to decline. With pride we will 
recognize and salute leadership and 
become leaders ourselves. 

Now. to lead in any sphere of life at any 
epoch has been and always is difficult. 
But sometimes in education it seems 
especially so. The populations are great, 
the constituencies broad; and in educa- 
tion, many people want other persons' 
authority but not their responsibility But 
whether in education or elsewhere in life, 
the words of Lao Tzu from the Sixth Cen- 
tury B.C. still ring true: "Of a good leader, 
they ultimately will say we did this 
ourselves." And leadership is made more 
difficult because of those who do not 
lead but block, those who criticize but 
do not help. 

In the autumn of 1984, 
no theme could be more 
appropriate for an educa- 
tional institution than that 
of leadership. And no 
educational institution is 
more appropriate to em- 
brace it than this one. con 

sider its achievements, its traditions, and 
its heritage. It was founded in 1866 
. . . what an appropriate year! It was an 
apt time, in that year another fine institu- 
tion was created, not too far away from 
Lebanon Valley College ... a Methodist 
university: Drew. And in the mid-west, 
Carlton, another fine school, A plethora 
of educational institutions were founded 
in one year, and that was the year of 
founding of The American University . . . 
not the one in Washington. DC. but the 
one in Beirut, Lebanon. And there was a 
sense of humanity and concern that year 
the year of the founding of the American 



Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to 
Animals. All of these were acts of 
leadership. 

And that was the year in which 
nitroglycerin was mixed with other com- 
pounds, and a new product was invented 
. . . dynamite. And with it came a whole 
new era of mining, engineering, and war- 
fare. It changed our lives. The inventor of 
dynamite? A Swedish engineer — Alfred 
Bernard Nobel. His name lingers on from 
the fortune he got from the invention he 
made in the year in which Lebanon 
Valley College was founded. 

On a less serious vein, it was also the 
year in which, in Philadelphia. Breyers ice 
cream came into being. And lack Daniels 
sour mash was invented in Tennessee. In 
Detroit, the Parke-Davis & Company 
pharmaceuticals came into being. And it 
was a banner year for the founding of 
publishing companies: Ginn & Company 
G. P Putnan & Sons, and Henry Holt 
Company which later became Holt. 
Rinehart & Winston. And in literature it 
was a stunning time: Dostoevsky's Crime 
and Pumhment. and Ljeo Tolstoys epic. War 
and Peace. And at home. Walt Whitman 
penned a poem to his fallen leader, 
whose most immortal words were 
spoken only a few miles from Lebanon 
Valley College. The title of the poem: "O 
Captain! My Captain!" The leader: 
Abraham Lincoln. 



Even today itself is ironically ap- 
propriate, for two decades ago from this 
very day— on October 14, 1964— the 
Reverend Martin Luther King received 
the Nobel Peace Prize. 

So you see, this College 
has been and remains in- 
timately linked with lead- 
ership. May it always be so. 

We meet today because 
of leadership. That of the 
religious founders of this 
college. 

That of the unique man 
you install today, an ex- 
perienced professional in 
education and in politics. 

And that of the boldness 
and vision of this old yet 
young college. One that 
values values. That has a 
warm and loving communi- 
ty. And one that— even in 
the perilous times of the 
mid-eighties— is bold 
enough to teach leader- 
ship. And that, you see, is 
leadership. 

I salute you and wish you 
well. 




The Valley 8 



Arthur L. Peterson 



^*OSf the Job*^ 




"A day to do anything I want to do?" 

The president of Lebanon Valley College stroked his chin as 
he considered the question, smiled and stared off into the 
distance. It was impossible to know just what he was envision- 
ing. Until he spoke. 

"Well. Ljefs see. I'd go down to the Millard Airport where a 
little Bellanca aircraft would be waiting, and I'd fly down to 
lekyll Island off the coast of Georgia. Then I'd body surf for 
two or three hours, if the waves were up. And then I'd fly up to 
Washington for a meeting with some of my old political 
cronies. After that late afternoon discussion. I'd get back into 
my plane and fly to Boston to take in the Boston Pops. After 
that, I'd fly home." He paused, then concluded, "1 think that 
would be a very enjoyable day." 

And that gives some insight into the man. Art Peterson. 

He enjoys flying, although since his heart attack nine years 
ago he no longer holds a pilot's license. During his flying years 
he had two close calls while piloting small planes. One came 



when a storm forced him into an emergency landing on a 
country road as he was en route to an interview for the 
presidency of Colorado State. The other close call came when 
he was flying his 93-year-old father to one of his brother's sap- 
phire mines in Montana. Both magnetos gave out on his air- 
craft that time, and he had to glide six miles to attempt a land- 
ing on an Indian reservation. He says, as he recalls the ex- 
perience, 'I knew I only had one cut at the field " He made it, 
landing "gingerly between hay stacks." 

He also enjoys the outdoors. Body surfing off lekyll Island. 
Walking. Hiking. ""And. sometimes." he says, "I just sit and 
look. The scene around Kreiderheim is so idyllic. Occasional- 
ly, we see deer playing in the meadow as dusk falls."" 

Art Peterson enjoys music— and not just the Boston Pops. 
He appreciates the music available on campus and makes 
every effort to attend all campus activities, including recitals. 
He is a bit of a musician himself. "I sang (baritone) in church 
choirs, and 1 played the trombone," he says. 

Politics, once his career, remains one of his avocations. He 
also considers political history a hobby and is excited about 
his recent appointment as chairman of a committee for the 
reactivation of the Society for Political Inquiry charter. (The 
Society many of whose original members were signers of the 
Constitution, was started in 1787 by Ben Franklin and went 
out of existence at the time of his death.) He also enjoys 
reading the political novels of Allen Drury. 

While Art Peterson"s flight of fantasy touched on several of 
the things that fill his off-duty hours, it missed one of the most 
important parts of his life, however. The father of a son and 
three daughters, Peterson says he resigned his first presidency 
(The American Graduate School of International Manage- 
ment known as Thunderbird) to spend more time with his 
wife. Connie, and the children. "After four years." he explains, 
"'1 realized it was possible to be a success professionally but 
perhaps at the family"s expense."" 

What, in his mind, constitutes a successful man? 
"if one has a family,"" he begins, ""being able to educate one's 
children is very important. To instruct them in the obligations 
of citizenship and to teach them how to make a contribution 
to others." He continues, "If, in one's adult life, the lives of the 
next generation can be infused with one's own values, that is 
a major success. Similarly making such a contribution to the 
community One who preaches and lives those values before 
his children and in his community can be considered a 
success."

HqII 

Of 

Fame 



On Saturday, October 13, 1984, the fol- 
lowing graduates were inducted into the 
Lebanon Valley College Hail of Fame: 

EdwinH. White 17 

In lune of 1QI4 Hal White caused the New 
York limes to take notice of tiny l^banon 
Valley College when he threw a no-hit, 
no-run game against Muhlenberg. It 
wasn't the first time that pitcher White 
had handcuffed Muhlenberg's batters, as 
earlier in the season he had struck out 
eighteen in LVCs 5-0 victory over the 
Mules. 

That year Hal White and one other pit- 
cher led the Valley baseball team to a 
12-3 record, the finest they had ever had. 
Hal played four years of baseball for the 
Valley and captained the team his senior 
year. He also played varsity tennis his 
junior and senior years and captained 
those teams as well 

His service to his Alma Mater was not 
limited to athletics, however. He was a 
member of the Men's Senate, the Presi- 
dent's Prohibition League, the Campus 
Workers Club, the YMCA devotional 
committee. He also was sports editor of 
the college newspaper and president of 
his senior class. 

In addition, he was voted the ideal stu- 
dent athlete by his classmates. Following 
his success on the diamond, Hal was in- 
vited by the late great Connie Mack to 
join the Philadelphia Athletics. 

For his contribution to the early years 
of LVCs Athletic Program, we are honor- 
ed today to induct Hal into our Athletic 
Hall of Fame. 

J. Frederick Heilman '26 

In the early 20's Fritz Heilman helped 
usher in the remarkable coaching era of 
E, E, Hooks Mylin. As one of the famed 
"Mylin Men," Fritz Heilman played end 
for LVC football teams that scheduled the 
likes of Army Villanova, and Penn State. 
At the other end position was Fritz's 
classmate lerome Frock who was destin- 
ed to later become one of the finest 



coaches in LVCs history. But it was Fritz 
Heilman who sparked our 30-6 victory 
over Villanova, And it was Fritz Heilman 
who was the star in the 1925 victory over 
arch-rival Albright. 

In addition to captaining the football 
team, he was elected captain of the 
1924-2 5 basketball team and was a 
member of the Varsity "L' Club. 

In the springtime Fritz Heilman 
displayed his versatility by playing on the 
starting nine of the Ljebanon Valley Col- 
lege baseball team. Although the de- 
mands on his time were great, playing on 
both the defensive and offensive squads 
in football and excelling in three sports, 
Fritz Heilman took the time to serve his 
class as its treasurer. 

Shortly before his death. Tiny Parry, a 
journalist who covered Pennsylvania 
sports for more than fifty years, listed 
Fritz Heilman among the top thirty foot- 
ball players he had ever seen play. 

It is with tremendous pleasure that we 
induct Fritz into the Hall of Fame. 

Charles E. Bartolet, Sr. ' 36 

Retired after thirty-six years of teaching 
and coaching at Nazareth and Easton 
High Schools, Danny Bartolet began his 
athletic exploits early as a student at LVC 

A tackle on the Blue and White football 
team, his remarkable line play was para- 
mount in LVCs 1934 win over the pre- 
viously unbeaten University of Delaware. 

He was the co-captain of the 1935 foot- 
ball team which won six of ten games in- 
cluding an 18-0 shutout of Delaware for 
the second year in a row. The team's 
record is all the more impressive when 
we consider that three of the four 
defeats were at the hands of Penn State, 
Drexel and Fordham. Several weeks after 
the regular season had ended co-captain 
Bartolet led them in defeating "fempa 
University on Christmas Day 1935 in the 
first intersectional game in the history of 
Lebanon Valley College. 

That same spring Danny Bartolet 
played first base and batted .391 on the 
LVC baseball squad, which won the 
Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate League 
Championship. The next year he captain- 
ed the team. 

He also played two fine seasons of 
basketball for the Dutchmen and was 
voted Best Athlete of the College by the 
student body. 



It is no surprise that in 1978 he was 
elected to the PIAA District XI Hall of 
Fame. 

It is our distinct pleasure here today to 
add yet another Hall of Fame induction 
to Danny's outstanding record. 

Henry W. Schmalzer '47 

Hank Schmalzer was one of the stellar 
performers who served LVC, country, and 
LVC again, in that order. Hank played on 
the '39, '40, and '41 Dutchmen Football 
teams. His play at the tackle position was 
outstanding. In 1941 he received honor- 
able mention as a tackle on the little Ail- 
American team. His teammates elected 
him captain of the 1942 squad, but he 
was called into the Army before the 
season opened. 

He returned to the Annville campus in 
the fall of 1946, In that, his senior year in 
addition to playing at his customary 
tackle position. Hank also served as line 
coach for the entire squad. 

One of the highlights of his last season 
was the drubbing our men gave the 
Albright Lions. 

Hank Schmalzer was a member of the 
Varsity "L' Club and was elected to the 
Men's Day-Student Congress following 
his return from the war. 

Following his playing days at LVC, Hank 
Schmalzer devoted fifteen years of his 
life to coaching both football and track, 
the last five years as lead coach of near- 
by Lebanon High School. 

We are indeed proud to induct Hank 
into the LVC Athletic Hall of Fame. 

George R. Marquette '48 

Rinso Marquette has been making his 
mark on the Lebanon Valley College 
campus for most of the last thirty-nine 
years. With the exception of time out for 
graduate work, a high school coaching 
position and a stint with the Detroit 
Tigers baseball organization, Rinso has 
been at every LVC Homecoming since 
the mid '40s. 

As a student he lettered in three sports. 
He was a high point producer on the 
hardwoods and captained the '47-48 
basketball team. He was the heavy hit- 
ting second baseman on the 1947 team 
that enjoyed an 11-2 record. On the 
gridiron he ran for yardage from the left 
halfback position. In his senior year he 
was second in scoring behind LVC Hall of 



The Valley 10 



Famer Hank Di)ohnson. 

His classmates selected him IVIen's 
Sports Leader. He was a member of the 
Men's Senate, vice-president of the 
lunior Class, and was selected for inclu- 
sion in Who's Who in American Universities 
and Colleges. 

A short time after graduation Rinso 
returned to LVC to coach both its 
baseball and basketball teams. In the 
1952-53 season his cagers set a season 
record of 20-3, carrying the Dutchmen's 
banner into the NCAA Eastern Regional 
playoffs at Raleigh, North Carolina, 
where they lost to Louisiana State 
University in the semi-finals, in his eight 
years at the helm of the basketball pro- 
gram his teams had won 100 games. 

Upon Marquette's retirement from 
coaching, the Yorfe Dispatch noted that 
"when Rinso Marquette resigned as 
coach at Lebanon Valley, intercollegiate 
athletics lost a gentleman." 

Fortunately for us, LVC did not lose him. 
It is our distinct honor to induct Rinso in- 
to the LVC Hall of Fame. 

Lester S. Holstein '61 

In May 1960 Les Holstein— then a junior 
who had already earned eight varsity let- 
ters in football, baseball and track- 
became the first undergraduate in the 
history of Lebanon Valley College to 
receive the Chuck Maston Memorial 



Award. The award is presented to the 
athlete who has displayed exceptional 
qualities of sportsmanship, leadership, 
cooperation and spirit. 

Les' efforts were exceptional. In one 
dual track meet against Ursinus he 
scored 26 points alone by winning the 
120-yard high hurdles and 220-yard low 
hurdles (new events to him), the 100-yard 
dash, tying for first place in the high 
jump and pole vault, and garnering se- 
cond place in the 220-yard dash. 

A typical day on the football field for 
Holstein was not unlike the game against 
Muhlenberg when, a junior, he caught a 
pass for 13 yards, carried the ball 12 
times for 50 yards, punted four times for 
an average of 39 yards, intercepted two 
passes and carried them back for 36 and 
18 yards, returned a kickoff 14 yards and 
recovered a fumble. 

Off the playing fields Les Holstein was 
a member of the Glee Club and Men's 
Senate, a class officer for three years, and 
treasurer of the Student Christian 
Association. He was selected for inclu- 
sion in Whds Who in American Universities 
and Colleges. 

It gives us great pleasure today to in- 
duct Les into the LVC Hall of Fame. 

Edward F. Thomas 71 

Ed Thomas, or "Tree " as we came to call 
him— that's right, TYee as in sturdy oak- 



came to LVC in the fall of 1967 having 
played football in high school. He had 
not wrestled, and he had never seen a 
lacrosse game. 

But over the next four years he became 
a master of all three sports. As a defen- 
sive end he was named to the All- 
Pennsylvania Football Team in 1968 and 
1970 and given Honorable Mention on 
the Little Ail-American Team his senior 
year He was named to the First Team of 
the Middle Atlantic Conference and the 
Eastern Collegiate Athlete Conference 
First Team two different years. He co- 
captained the football team and was the 
9th round draft choice of the New York 
Giants. His jersey number 88 was per- 
mantly retired. 

He was an undefeated wrestler his 
senior year and took second place in the 
MAC. At the time of his graduation he 
held the college record of 8 falls in one 
season, recording 6 in a row and most 
career falls of 2 3, 

Ed played four years of varsity lacrosse 
and in 1971 was named to the second 
All-MAC team and accorded honorable 
mention in the Central Atlantic Division. 
That year Ed was selected Mr Athlete by 
his fellow students and also received the 
Chuck Maston Award. 

We are pleased to induct Ed into the 
Hall of Fame.

New LVC Certificate Programs 



Lebanon Valley College has instituted four new certificate pro- 
grams in the fields of accounting, management, marketing 
and business computing, each of which requires 27 hours for 
completion 

These four certificate programs are intended to provide 
adult students with a very convenient way to participate in 
higher educational programs most relevant to their career ad- 
vancement or their employment. Certificates from Lebanon 
Valley College, already recognized for quality instructional 
programs, will become highly rated in business and industry 

Basically starter programs for adults, the certificate pro- 
grams generally approximate the first year of a four-year col- 
lege education. Such certificates may become the basis from 
which adults can continue their higher education at the 
associate's or bachelors degree level. 

Experience has shown that certificate holders, by qualifying 
for employment opportunities in new areas of expertise and 
responsibility are often able to make their careers more 
viable. Employers often find holders of certificates to be the 
best problem solvers and decision makers in their companies. 

All four LVC certificate programs consist of nine courses, 
27-semester-hour sequences designed to introduce the adult 
student to basic knowledge and skills in four special subjects, 
while at the same time offering selected studies in some basic 
arts and sciences courses. Those who are awarded such LVC 
certificates must study basic computer systems, managerial 
written and oral communications and usually a fundamental 
psychology course. Thus, these certificates are not simply job 
training programs, they are the foundations of a quality col- 
legiate education. Unlike the typical college freshman course 
of study these certificate programs provide substantial study 
in selected subjects, including courses usually taught to 
sophomores and juniors. 

Because some of the specific courses are based on prere- 
quisites or experiential credit, certificate requirements cannot 
be completed in one year. Certificate students usually take 18 
to 24 months to complete their programs part-time. 

LVC's Office of Continuing Education strives to serve the 
educational needs of the people in surrounding communities. 
This is part of its educational mission to the community in 
which the College has been located for 118 years. Courses in 
the certificate program are offered regularly in evenings, early 
evenings, and weekends during the academic year and also 
during the two summer sessions. Further information may be 
obtained from the Continuing Education Office at 867-44 II, 
extension 213. Registration and payment by VISA and 
MasterCard may be accomplished by telephone.

Perennial Pride 

Lebanon Valleys Campus Beautification Program 



Some students may care only about what Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege can do for them, but many have been asking what they 
can do for the College. 

Such is the case with members of Alpha Phi Omega (Nu 
Delta Chapter) and Gamma Sigma Sigma (Beta Chi Chapter). 
LVCs only national service fraternity and sorority No longer 
satisfied with such long-standing activities as used book ex- 
changes, bike hikes and carnivals for retarded citizens, work 
with retarded children, a blood drive for patients in near-by 
hospitals, and Helping Hands Weekend, |oe Ruocco, APOs 
president, asked the fraternity's service chairman, senior 




Harold Haslett. to propose three additional service projects 
for the fall semester: one each to benefit the community the 
fraternity and the campus. 

Visiting residents of a local home for the elderly and "spruc- 
ing up" the fraternity's meeting room (new furniture and 
paint) satisfied the community and fraternity service re- 
quirements. Coming up with a campus project required more 
thought. In his routine walks across campus, Haslett began to 
see things, things he hadn't noticed before. Unsightly foot- 
paths. Colorless garden areas. Sparse shrubbery. Litter 
around some of the dorms. He remembered that earlier in 
the semester the APO brothers had agreed something need- 
ed to be done to encourage more students to take pride in 
their campus. And he realized he had found APO's service 
project for the campus: a campus beautification program. 

APO and Gamma Sigma Sigma members (who were asked 
to join in the project) were much in favor of the proposal. So 
were College administrators. In fact. Dr George Marquette, 
vice president for student affairs, requested that the project 
become an ongoing one. President Arthur Peterson was en- 
thusiastic about the idea, saying he had noticed the campus 
needed beautification. especially in light of his plans for ex- 
panded use of facilities. Vice President and Controller Robert 
Riley assured the students of some funding for the initial 
phase of the project. Finally Haslett was ready to take his pro- 
posal to the director of grounds, Kevin Yeiser. Yeiser and 
Haslett compared ideas for the project and designed long- 
range plans. 

As a result, on the first Saturday in November students from 
APO and Gamma Sigma Sigma joined with Yeiser and 
members of his staff in planting new shrubbery thinning and 
cutting back ivy and planting spring bulbs. Other flower beds 
were created and prepared for planting in the spring. 

In the spring, the crew again will roll up their sleeves, plant- 
ing hedges amidst the ivy in front of the Allan W. Mund Col- 
lege Center (forming a natural barrier to discourage walking 
on the grass), planting annuals and flowering trees for con- 
tinuous spring and summer color and holly trees for fall color. 

A close look soon will reveal a new tradition of pride bud- 
ding on campus.

Dr. Arthur L. Peterson, president of 
Lebanon Valley College, has announced 
a new scholarship in biology 

The Mary E. McCurdy Graham Biology 
Scholarship Fund, begun with $2 50,000 
from the Estate of the late Mrs. Graham, 
will provide substantial scholarship aid 
for outstanding students in biology Both 
prospective and current students are in- 
vited to apply for the competitive 
scholarships, which are renewable an- 
nually. 

Graham, who retired in 1974 after 
twenty-six years of teaching biology and 
advanced biology in the Lower Merlon 
School District. Ardmore, was a 1930 
graduate of Lebanon Valley and a 
lifelong advocate of excellence in educa- 
tion, particularly in biology Her will 
specified that a portion of her estate 
should be used in the biology depart- 
ment of her alma mater to help insure 
that future students would enjoy the 
same kind of education she received. 

Dr. Paul L. Wolf, chairman of the 
department of biology upon learning of 
the new scholarship, said: "These funds 
will help us attract a significant number 
of highly qualified and promising 
students in biology to expand the base 
of our already large number of outstan- 
ding scholars in this field." 

The Graham scholarships, along with 
the $5.000-per-year Dow Chemistry 
Scholarships the college began offering 
this year are. said Peterson, "a challenge 
to other departments within the College 
to identify sources of similar scholarship 
funds," Peterson explained that both new 
programs are part of the College's new 
emphasis on providing more financial 
aid to top-quality students.

Creating 
-an . ^ 
Event 

David Michaels, director of food service 
and conferences, has some advice for 
those planning large dinners, graduation 
parties, wedding receptions, etc. 

"if you're going to transform a room 
(as he did with the gymnasium for the in- 
augural luncheon), sit down and plan 
everything in advance. Decide how you 
want the room to look and then pick 
apart the components. Find out what 
you already have or what you may need 
to borrow or rent, 

"Use what you have, but don't mix and 
match, if you have some good china, but 
not enough for everyone, don't use it," 
Michaels admits he did not follow this 
advice at the inaugural, "We used the 
College's old silver service from when 
they used to serve every meal and we fill- 
ed in with our stainless steel flatware. But 
all the flatware on each table matched," 

On the subject of floral arrangements, 
his advice is "Cut flowers are best, and 
the more simple an arrangement the bet- 
ter." He favors light, airy arrangements. 
The centerpeices for the inauguration 
consisted of one sprig each of eucalyp- 
tus, scotch broom and freesia in beakers 
and flasks from the College's old 
chemistry laboratory. 

Most important, he says, is to create an 
event, to present a novel menu that looks 
as good as it tastes. 



Novelty does not mean that the food 
must be unfamiliar to the guests. In fact, 
he says, this is not the time to venture in- 
to uncharted water. "If you're big on 
Italian food and comfortable preparing 
it, make your menu unusual by using dif- 
ferent pasta products— fettucine or 
spinach noodles, for example." he says. 

At the inauguration, he used familiar 
foods (beef, rice, carrots, broccoli, 
cauliflower, apples, walnuts and lettuce) 
in an innovative menu with nouveau 
cuisine touches (see recipes). The 
effect— a dinner that was a hit with 
everyone from the pickiest eaters to the 
most discriminating palates among the 
guests. 

The small touches are also important, 
"Because we had no way to keep ice in 
the water glasses," he explained, "we did 
something as simple as floating a lemon 
slice in each water glass. It had visual im- 
pact and kept the water fresh," 

In keeping with the College"s United 



Methodist tradition, Michaels served an 
appetizer of cranberry juice. But the 
presentation was unusual. He served the 
juice in sparkling crystal champagne 
glasses, 

Michaels also shared a few profes- 
sional shortcuts, "You can cut costs by 
hiring high school or college students as 
servers, and if you know a good baker 
you can have him make the dessert in- 
stead of suffering over the baking 
yourself, 

"if you"re really on the go,"" he says, 
"fresh vegetables can be cut a few days 
in advance and covered with cheesecloth 
or plastic wrap, then ice. But the ice 
should never touch the vegetables. Cold 
dry storage is much better, " 

Marinated meat is also good for a 
"prepare ahead"" dinner, he explains. 
"The marinade helps tenderize the meat 
and lets you cook the meat to the 
medium or medium rare stage, which 
gives it a nice texture,""

Above all, he says, don't be afraid to 
hire professional help, even if only for a 
portion of the menu. Many caterers will 
agree to cater only part of an event, he 
said, "Remember, your time is worth 
money too." 

Michaels agreed to share some of the 
recipes he used for the inaugural lun- 
cheon. The first is a simple marinade for 
the sirloin tips with which the entree was 
created. 
Marinated Beef 

3 pounds sirloin tip, cut into strips or 
cubes (see below) 

1 quart salad oil 
3/4 cup cider vinegar 

1 clove garlic, ground 
dash of salt 
dash of white pepper 

3 tbsp. Worchestshire sauce 

Mix together, pour over beef to cover, 
marinate (covered and refrigerated) for at 
least 18 hours, preferably longer. 

Michaels says the best way to prepare 
the marinated beef is flame broiling. It 



may also be baked in a hot oven or 
seared and sauteed in a little marinade. 
This recipe will serve 8 to 10 people. 

For the inauguration, he placed \Vi- 
inch slices of meat lengthwise on skewers 
with small whole mushrooms at either 
end of the skewers, marinated the 
skewered meat and mushrooms for a few 
days, cooked in a hot oven, and served 
over white rice with pimento bits. 

Completing the plate was a bou- 
quetiere (combination) of steamed fresh 
broccoli and cauliflower florets and 
precisely julienned carrots, lightly but- 
tered and salted. 

Another hit at the luncheon was an 
unusual spinach salad with apples, 
walnuts and mustard dressing. The 
recipe is an adaptation of a salad served 
at Prospect of Westport, a nouveau 
cuisine restaurant in Kansas City 

For the salad you'll need; 
Fresh spinach, washed and stemmed 
Fresh red leaf lettuce, washed and torn 
into bite size pieces 
Firm red apples, unpeeled, cored and 
cut in medium dice 
Chopped walnuts 
Mustard dressing (recipe follows) 

Arrange spinach and leaf lettuce on 
plates or in bowl. Sprinkle with apples 



and walnuts. Dress with warm mustard 

dressing. 

For the dressing you'll need: 

4 eggs 

1 cup heavy cream 
+ 1 cup 
2/3 cup white vinegar 

1 scant cup sugar 

4 tbsp. dry (English) mustard 

2 tsp. salt 

Beat eggs well. Add mustard, sugar 
and salt and beat again. Slowly add one 
cup heavy cream and vinegar. Pour into 
heavy saucepan and cook slowly until 
thickened. Remove from heat. Add re- 
maining cup of cream, whisking to com- 
bine well. 

NOTE: Will hold for long periods of time 
in refrigerator: reheat to serve. Makes 
wonderful homemade mustard without 
the addition of the second cup of cream. 
If necessary the dressing may be served 
at room temperature.
