From the Editor
U'hen it came time to assemble this issue of The Valley.
we laid all the stories out on the table and we discovered
that we had, without premeditation, created a theme is-
sue. The theme is tradition— tradition that binds us to our
past and gives us confidence to face our future.
A special award to Hot Dog Frank in February sparked
new interest in the extraordinary story of a Greek im-
migrant who adopted a college. Among Hot Dog's friends
at the award ceremony were members of the most fa-
mous Dutchmen basketball team of all— the Cinderella
team of 1952-1953. We have included a story on that
team in this issue.
And while the passing of Dr. Samuel O. Grimm, a mem-
ber of the college community for over seventy years,
drove home to us the fragile nature of our links with the
past, our faith in a bright future was renewed by the an-
nual Founders Day program and the announcement of
several bold new academic programs.
So, in this issue we celebrate our past and we honor
those among us who show that same spirit of selfless
sharing that has traditionally set LVC apart— as a tough
little school where people care about each other and
about their college.
On Our Cover
Shown on the cover of this issue is Dr. Samuel O. "Soggy"

for over seventy years.
The Valley 2
Samuel Oliver Grimm
Born September 3, 1889/Died November 18, 1984
by Edna Carmean
The mourners gathered in the Annville
United Methodist Church on Wednes-
day, November 21, the day before
Thanksgiving. And they all knew that a
generation had ended.
For 75 years he was a familiar figure
on the Lebanon Valley campus— the
stocky little man who looked over his
glasses with an impish grin— the man
who had worn more official hats than
anyone else in the College history— the
man known affectionately as "Soggy"
Samuel Oliver Grimm was a product
of the Pennsylvania Dutch country,
made of the stuff which formed the
backbone of the College when it was
founded and which kept it alive when
its future seemed most hopeless. He
was born on a farm near Red Lion,
Pennsylvania. An only child, he grew up
with his grandparents and spoke noth-
ing but Pennsylvania German when he
entered country school at the age of
five. When he was nine, his family
moved to town and he graduated from
the Red Lion High School in 1 904, at the
age of fifteen.
After high school, young Sam got a
job right away, making cigars. "Practi-
cally every house in Red Lion in those
days was a cigar factory," he said. But
he didn't want to go into the cigar busi-
ness. He wanted to become a teacher.
He took the county teachers' exami-
nation when he was sixteen, and passed
it. The county superintendent advised
him to go to normal school and get a
sound teaching foundation, so he en-
rolled in the Millersville State Normal
School in 1905.
It was a fateful decision. In 1906, he
met the girl he knew he wanted to marry
when Maude Shirey came from her
home in New Park, just a half-mile north
of the Mason-Dixon line, and enrolled
at Millersville, Their courtship thrived in
spite of the heavily-chaperoned cam-
pus environment. After graduation, they
both got teaching jobs, Maude in her
home town of New Park. Sam in his
home town of Red Lion.
But Sam was not satisfied with teach-
ing seventh and eighth grade children
for $40.00 a month. He yearned for
more education. When Professor H. H.
Shenk offered him a scholarship to Le-
banon Valley College up in Annville, he
decided to accept it. He came to the
College in 1909 and stayed for the rest
of his life.
Because of his two years at Millers-
ville, Grimm was enrolled as a sopho-
more at Lebanon Valley, where he
signed up for the chemical-biological
course and majored in biology. He lived
in the men's dormitory and became an
active campus citizen. He joined Phi-
lokosmian Literary Society. He became
editor of the College News and of the
1 9 1 2 yearbook. The Bizarre. And he was
at least an interested spectator to the
goings-on of the Death League, a no-
torious hooded crew which existed for
the sole purpose of hazing hapless
freshmen. It was a time of horseplay and
practical jokes, sometimes crude and al-
ways cruel to the person who was the
butt: a time when it was not unthinkable
to douse the college president with a
bucket of ice water: a time when a
dozen outhouses could be stolen from
neighboring back yards and strung in a
line across the campus: a time when a
cow could be dragged up to the third
floor and penned overnight in a class-
room. Greased door knobs and plugged
keyholes ranked as minor annoyances.
Sam Grimm was no longer a resident
of the men's dorm in his senior year. At
noon on lune 27, 191 1, he and Maude

Shirey were married at her home in New
Park, she in white satin and lace, he in
black, suit and bow tie. After a short
honeymoon, the young couple came
back to Annville and took a room on
Church Street. Maude studied china
painting and decorated a complete set
of china, which became a family trea-
sure. Sam was a laboratory assistant in
biology that year, and he graduated in
the spring of 1912 with a bachelor of
Grimm got a job that summer with the
State Department of Forests and
Waters. "They still thought they could
stop the chestnut blight," he said. While
he tramped through mile after mile of
forested mountains in search of blighted
trees, he received two offers for fall. He
had just been appointed principal of a
private academy in Denmark, Iowa,
when he got a proposition from Leba-
non Valley, The College would pay $800
a year plus room and board for him and
his wife if he would become principal of
the Lebanon Valley Academy, He de-
cided to accept the offer from his Alma
The young Grimms were given two
front rooms and a bath on the second
floor of South Hall, the Academy build-
ing. (This, the original College building,
was razed in 1975,) The other rooms on
the second and third floors were oc-
cupied by young male boarding
Being principal of the Academy was
a full-time job for Sam Grimm. There
were 65 to 70 students, and the curric-
ulum covered all the subjects usually
taught in high school— English, Latin.
German, mathematics through solid ge-
ometry, science, etc. Grimm had a part-
time faculty consisting of three or four
of the college seniors. What they didn't
teach, he did.
At three o'clock in the morning of
March 29. 1913, Henry Grimm was born
in the second floor bedroom of South
Hall. Maude was in labor for twelve
hours, but not one of the sleeping boys
in the building knew what was going on.
The next morning, a line of delighted
teen-agers filed in to visit the new baby.
The students soon grew accustomed to
seeing his carriage on campus and his
high chair in the dining room. When he
was two, his parents left the rooms in
South Hall. They moved to a house on
Maple Street, where three more sons
were born; Robert, in 1918: Samuel, |r.,
in 1920: and Richard, in 1926, In 1930,
the Grimms bought the Main Street
home in which they spent the rest of
In 1913, Grimm was asked to take over
the teaching of physics at the college
level. Up to that time, only one course
in physics had been offered, taught by
professors who had not studied the
subject themselves. Grimm had taken a
physics course at Millersville a few years
before, and he accepted the challenge.
He spent the next three summers at Co-
lumbia University, studying with the em-
inent physicists Robert A. Milliken and
E, H, Armstrong. This program was in-
terrupted by World War 1, but later on
he studied for a summer at the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania.
In 1 9 1 5 , a need for education courses
arose. Since Grimm was a teachers' col-
lege graduate, he was tapped again and
became professor of both physics and
education. He had set a pattern for his
life. He served where he was needed.
He accepted responsibility. In 1920, he
was appointed registrar of the College,
Physics had grown from one course to
a real department by then, and he con-
tinued a heavy teaching schedule in ad-
dition to this new job.
According to college catalogs, no one
has matched Grimm in the versatility of
his course offerings. Over the years, he
taught twenty-six different courses in
physics, ten in mathematics, nine in ed-
ucation, four in history, and two in psy-
chology, in addition to instructing in ge-
ography, astronomy, surveying, and
mechanical drawing. He was also, at dif-
ferent times, treasurer of the College,
business manager, superintendent of
buildings and grounds, and secretary
and treasurer of the Board of Trustees,

Samuel Oliver Grimm was truly a man
for all seasons— biologist, physicist,
mathematician, academic and adminis-
trative handyman, and responsible cit-
izen. For these reasons, he was awarded
the honorary Doctor of Science degree
by Lebanon Valley College at the Com-
mencement of 1942.
Both Sam and Maude Grimm were
deeply involved in church and com-
munity life. But to them their best
achievement was the production of four
sons who all graduated from Lebanon
Valley College as physics majors. These
sons have now presented the Grimms
with ten grandchildren and fourteen
In 1949. a separate office of admis-
sions was established and Grimm gave
up the office of registrar. In 1957. he
gave up the chairmanship of the physics
department, but he continued to teach
and work in his lab.
When Maude died in 1981. Sam lost
his companion of 70 years. He was
lonely, but determined to stay indepen-
dent. He continued to live by himself in
his house just a stones throw from the
campus. Almost every day he could be
found in his lab, where he was titled a
"technical assistant." When the physics
department moved to the new science
building in 1983, Grimm supervised the
relocation of his lathe and other lab
equipment. He had an office in the new
building, with his name on the door, but
he seldom visited it. He was slowing
Grimm continued to be included in
campus activities. On his 95th birthday.
September 3, 1984, there was a sur-
prise party at his house, when a group
of LVC administrators, including the
President and the Dean of the Faculty,
brought in ice cream and cake to cel-
ebrate. He was delighted, but apolo-
gized that he hadn't had time to fold his
Many of his friends saw him for the
last time on October 14. when he at-
tended the inauguration of President
Peterson. After the ceremony they saw
him slip into the line of robed faculty
and make the familiar march to the mu-
sic of the Recessional. Only a few days
after that. Henry got a telephone call
from his father. Fiercely independent to
the last. Dr. Grimm had decided he
needed to go to the hospital and had
made his own arrangements. He told
Henry he had already called the am-
bulance and expected it momentarily.
Then he left his Main Street house for
the last time. He died four weeks later.

fork in the road in 1912. "1 often won-

book. The Blue Eyed Six, which deals
with a local murder case from the
late 1800s, and Sandusky Brown, a
chamber opera she co-wrote with
faculty composer Thomas Lanese.
She also edited and researched Le-
banon County, Pennsylvania: A His-
tory and assisted Dr. Paul Wallace in
writing the College's Centennial His-
tory. In the 1930s she and her hus-
band, Professor D. Clark Carmean,
volunteered to move into the men's
dormitory, Kreider Hall, described
by some as "a living museum of
hoodlumism. " Within five years,
their quiet example had trans-
formed the boys' attitude and as-
sured the Carmeans an honored
place in LVC history.

Music of the clarinet choir drifted over the Miller Chapel
on February 1 9 as Lebanon Valley College presented Walter
F. Raab, chairman of the board and chief executive officer
of AMP, Inc., with the sixth annual Founders Day Award.
The award is given annually to "a person in the region
who, like the founders of the College, has exhibited unsel-
hsh and unusual community service in founding avenues
leading to the future."
The theme of community service was echoed by guest
speaker lerald F terHorst who spoke on corporate respon-
sibility to the community.
Now director of public affairs for Ford Motor Company,
terHorst served as press secretary to President Gerald Ford
thirty days, before resigning in protest of the Nixon pardon.
In his Founders Day address, he said corporations may
be legal entities with no souls, but "they are still operated
by people with flesh and blood and hearts. Along with the
men in the gray flannel suits in our executive suites are a
lot of pretty colorful persons, even some rugged individ-
ualists, who react to the social needs of their communities
and the country in warm human ways." Walter F Raab, he
said, is one such responsible corporate leader.
Raab, who joined AMP in 1953, served the corporation
as treasurer, vice president, director, chief financial officer,
and vice chairman of the board before accepting his present
position in 1982. In presenting the Founders Day award,
Lebanon Valley College President Dr Arthur L. Peterson
cited his "commendatory citizenship, liberality in spirit and
giving, ethical conduct, and compassion for the welfare of
Peterson said Raab and AMP have made "tremendous
contributions to all the colleges in the area."
AMP'S corporate gifts and gifts through the Whitaker
Foundation have brought tangible benefits to Lebanon Val-
ley College's programs and facilities. For example, the Col-
lege recently purchased scanning and electron microscopes
eraid F. terHorst
through a $136,000 grant from the Whitaker Foundation.
TerHorst said such community service is vital, if busi-
nesses are to survive.
In his address, terHorst applauded AMP'S spirit of com-
munity service and said that businesses must care about
people, if businesses are to survive.
"Sixty years ago," said terHorst, 'a president of the United
States stood up in public— in fact before the American So-
ciety of Newspaper Editors— and proudly proclaimed that
The Valley 6
Walter F Raab
The business of America is business.' But that was in the
Roaring Twenties, before the Wall Street crash, before the
banks closed, before the Great Depression, before World
War 11— before men and women everywhere came to un-
derstand that the business of America is not business. Dare
I say it? The business of America is people."
TerHorst went on to explain that "for any business, the
bottom line is people. Our governmental and private sec-
tor institutions— including corporations and companies large
and small— constitute a network for helping and caring . . .
without that network, our society is in deep trouble."
"A corporation's best interests are best served by helping
to maintain a sound social, economic and political environ-
ment in all of our communities," said terHorst.
He explained his position by asking the audience to keep
in mind five points.
First, he said, priorities must be made.
"Putting first things first," said terHorst, "a company has a
responsibility to give communities a quality product or ser-
vice for their money,""
Second. terHorst continued, corporations must show so-
cial responsibility by donating money to their communities.
Third, said terHorst, corporations must strive to provide
equal treatment to people, regardless of their race, color,
religion, creed or gender.
Fourth, corporations must make tangible contributions,
other than financial, to communities.
"We need executives serving on governors" commissions,
on mayors" task forces and in urban coalitions to help solve
fiscal problems, racial difficulties, to reduce crime and to
satisfy the needs of the various school districts in the area.""
Last, terHorst said, corporations must become public
"Im talking about coming up with the money, the time
and the effort to see that bond issues are passed to improve
education, to clean up water supplies and the air we
breathe," said terHorst. "Sometimes, yes, even sometimes
to raise taxes for the vital public purposes. You may be
surprised to hear that, around the country, business people
are increasingly talking this way and becoming active in
these kinds of community caring projects. The test of a com-
munity is not whether it offers a good life for those who
have much. It is whether it provides help and hope for those
who have little. That is a caring community. And anyone
who enters that community walks on hallowed ground.""

ANNVILLE— For four and a half decades, Frani< Aftosmes
cheerfully served hot dogs and advice to Lebanon Valley
College students and town residents.
Last night, they lovingly served hot dogs and tributes to
Aftosmes. known to young and old as "Hot Dog Frank,"
was proprietor of Frank's Hot Dog Stand at 7 East Main
Street from 1928-73. He also was father to generations of
Lebanon Valley College students, fan to generations of
Flying Dutchmen athletes and a friend to everyone he met.
"Hot Dog Frank was a legend in his own time," Lebanon
County ludge lohn Walter told 1 , 100 fans at "Hot Dog Frank
Night" ceremonies during the Lebanon Valley College-Al-
bright College basketball game halftime. "He was the epit-
ome of helping other people without fanfare. He was con-
fidant, father confessor, counselor and friend."
Hot Dog Frank came here from Greece in 1928. He de-
cided to start a hot dog business because, he reasoned,
"everyone could afford a dime hot dog and a nickel coffee
or soft drink."
Soon he became famous for his hot dogs with mustard,
onions and a special Greek sauce. Hot Dog Frank's eatery
became a hangout for Lebanon Valley College students. Af-
tosmes, who scurried around in the restaurant in a long
white apron, became a familiar town character,
"I stayed open as long as I had a customer, " Aftosmes,
83 , said last night. ' 'People came from all across the country.
I never got tired of hot dogs. That's my favorite food."
Aftosmes was an avid sports fan, a fixture at Lebanon
Valley College games where he cheered for "his" Flying
Dutchmen. After games, students would pack into the 40-
seat restaurant, rehashing the victory or defeat. If the team
defeated arch rival Albright College, Aftosmes bought his
Hot Dog Frank admits to "whooping and hollering " dur-
ing Lebanon Valley College games. "One game we were
behind by three points," he recalled. "And the stands were
quiet. 1 got up, turned to the crowd and said. Come on,
darn it, yell!' They did and we won the game by three
Last night, Aftosmes again cheered for his Flying Dutch-
men. "Come on kid, get it in," he shouted as Bert Kreigh
scored a goal. "When another player fumbled the ball, he
said "you didn't mean to do it." And he cheered loudly
when Lebanon Valley defeated Albright, 78-72.
Marty Gluntz of Hershey, a 1953 Lebanon Valley gradu-
ate, recalled that "Hot Dog was one of our biggest fans.
Most of the athletes were close to Hot Dog and we used
to gather there. The kids loved him more than anyone out-
side of their families. He was part of our family here."
Lebanon Valley College Athletic Director Louis Sorrentino
said, ""Hot Dog treated all students well. He was a friend
and father, a tradition."
Howard Landa of Trevose, a 1955 graduate and now a
basketball coach, said that Hot Dog Frank provided the team
with "an extra incentive. He had to put out a lot of steaks,
because we won a lot of games."

Lois Adams of York reminisced that when she was a stu-
dent in 1946, "I snuck to Hot Dog Frank's after hours for
hot dogs and Coke. We weren't supposed to leave our dorm
after 10:00 p.m. "
Hot Dog Frank was quick to lend the students money when
they needed it— but just as quick to recall a loan.
Once, Aftosmes loaned a senior $45.00 and the student
wasn't planning to repay the loan. On graduation day, the
student received what he thought was a diploma— only to
find a note from college officials telling him "if you want
your diploma, pay Hot Dog Frank." Only after he repaid
the loan did he receive his diploma.
Another time, four coeds stranded in Atlantic City, New
Jersey, and short on funds called Hot Dog Frank for a loan.
"They were afraid to call their fathers, " he laughed.
"One girl borrowed $5.00 from me and didn't pay it back,"
he said. "She went to Germany, got married and had two
kids. More than 10 years later, she sent me the $5.00 "
Hundreds of alumni gave Hot Dog Frank a standing ova-
tion during halftime ceremonies, as the elderly man hugged
several friends, waved to the crowd and blew kisses to them,
"For decades, a home football or basketball game was
never complete without Hot Dog Frank cheering his be-
loved Flying Dutchmen to greater heights, " Walter said, pre-
senting a "Hot Dog Frank Flying Dutchmen Award " to
After the game, dozens of students wearing aprons car-
ried tables, big tubs of soda and big containers of hot dogs
to the middle of the basketball floor. As speakers blared
1950s music. Hot Dog Frank choked back tears of happi-
ness. Then, with his characteristic friendliness, he adopted
a new generation of Lebanon Valley College students.

The pages of the scrapbooks long ago turned yellow, but
memories of Lebanon Valley's Cinderella basketball team
of 1952-53 remain as vivid and clear as ever.
It was some 32 years ago that the Flying Dutchmen
shocked the college basketball world by winning a game in
the National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament,
then playing one of the nation's best teams to a standstill
for nearly an entire game.
Lebanon Valley College lost to Louisiana State University
89-76 that storied night in Raleigh, North Carolina, but the
fact that the Dutchmen were even there is the stuff legends
are made of. How a small, rural college of only 450 students
could go toe-to-toe with a team like LSU and its star player
Bob Pettit, defied logic,
George (Rinso) Marquette '48, then the coach, now vice
president for student affairs, says, "It was not an ordinary
experience. Not by any means."
Indeed it wasn't. The Flying Dutchmen were the story of
that season. They gained national recognition because of
their fine play and small size— both of the school and the
Bob Vetrone, who covered basketball for the Philadelphia
Bulletin at the time, wrote that the Dutchmen had "taken
all previous Cinderella teams in sport . , , and moved them
into the background."
It was a working-class team that, through dedication, de-
termination and team play, worked its way into basketball's
high society. There were no giants— nobody came close to
the 6'9" Pettit— no highly-recruited stars, lust some unique
athletes who were good enough and cocky enough to play
with the best there was.
"The ingredients were there." says LVC athletic director
Lou Sorrentino "54, the key sixth man on that fabled team.
"The chemistry was right, and there was a very strong co-
hesiveness all the way around. The talent was not great, but
the coach got some basic things across to us that really
helped us succeed."
Those basics revolved around a sophisticated match-up
zone defense— a tactic that proved ahead of its time— and
a precision offense based on limited dribbling and well-
"This was a ball club you had to see to appreciate, " says
Marquette proudly, "1 don't believe we played a game where
this didn't happen at least once: The ball was rebounded
off our defensive board and we had a three-man fastbreak
where the ball never touched the floor. Not a dribble.
The Valley 10
"It never failed. The crowd would be on its feet. It would
be similar to the response of dunking today. It was some-
thing to see. It typified, to me, their team play."
"It was really a very, very unselfish team," says Sorren-
tino, "a team that took pride in a sense that our award
would go to the guy with the most assists. It's one of those
things that just blossomed. '
It blossomed in the form of an offense that made 47 per-
cent of its field goals, a figure that led the nation. Leon
Miller '53, the 6'3" center and tallest member of the team,
made 59 percent of his shots, also the best in the nation.
With Miller, Howie Landa, '5 5, Herb Finklestein '54. Bill
Vought '53 and Richie Furda '53 in the starting lineup and
Sorrentino, Marty Gluntz '53, Don Grider '58, Bob Blakeney
'54, lim Handley '53 and Howie Kosier '55 coming off the
bench, the Dutchmen won 19 of 20 games and became a
The people of Annville and the entire area got excited
about basketball like at no time before. They would line up
three to four hours before each game in front of Lynch
Memorial Gym, waiting to get seats.
"Unless you experienced it at the time, you couldn't be-
lieve the impact on the general area," said Marquette. "The
interest generated by the ball club was tremendous."
"You look back, and it's a proud thing to us and to the
people of Annville, " says Landa, who coaches basketball
at Mercer County Community College in New jersey. "Those
people will never forget it. To some of them, it was the
greatest thing that ever happened in their lives."
'It was such a common topic of conversation, " remem-
bers Marquette, "that for some of the people of the area,
it must be one of the highlights of their lives. People realized
that there was a very, very special thing happening. It was
a very special time, a very special group,"
While the people of Annville thought the team was ex-
traordinary, the players themselves didn't treat the expe-
rience as such a big deal.
"The thing is, we were a cocky bunch back then," says
Landa, no doubt one of the cockiest. "We were only 19,
20, 21 years old, but we felt we belonged there. "
"It was no big deal. " says Sorrentino of the prospect of
playing against bigger schools. "We thought, "Hey, we can
play anybody.' As far as playing a Temple or a Fordham or
a Villanova, we thought that should be a normal schedule
for Lebanon Valley."
"1 don't think at the time we were overly impressed by

it," says Marquette. "We knew we had accomplished some-
thing very unusual, and yet, it was what we expected of
ourselves. I don't think we felt it was out of the ordinary,
it was almost a taken-for-granted type of thing on our part.
We were stupid in a way. Maybe that's the wrong word, but
for us, that's just the way it was going to be,"
No doubt, the Dutchmen were a very fine team that sea-
son. But they needed a break or two to get an NCAA tour-
nament invite. LaSalle, led by Tom Gola, one of the nation's
best players, was thought to be the best team in the nation.
But the Explorers were more interested in going to New
York to play in the bigger, more prestigious and more fi-
nancially rewarding National invitational Tournament,
Temple, which had a 16-10 record but a strong basketball
reputation, was considered by many people to be the choice
over tiny Lebanon Valley. But the Dutchmen, cocky as they
were, challenged the Owls to earn the berth in a special
playoff game. Temple backed away from the challenge, and
the Dutchmen became one of 32 teams chosen for the
The first game was against Fordham at the Palestra. But
before they left, the Dutchmen were jolted by the news that
they'd be playing without Furda or Grider, both of whom
the NCAA declared ineligible.
NCAA rules at the time didn't allow freshmen to compete.
Furda, a senior, had played as a freshman, Grider was a
freshman at the time. Marquette had petitioned the East
Coast Athletic Conference for a waiver, and the league had
complied, but the NCAA overruled the waiver.
It mattered little that first night. Marquette moved Sor-
rentino into the starting lineup and made no substitutions.
The Dutchmen's fine passing game consistently found the
open man, and the Valley won handily, 80-67.
They moved on to Raleigh, taking some 1,500 fans and
a German band that called itself the "Schmeercas Sym-
phony " with them on a Pullman train that departed Harris-
burg with everyone in high spirits.
The Dutchmen were in awe of neither the Louisiana State
Tigers nor of North Carolina State's Reynolds Colosseum,
no doubt the biggest place they had played in. Lebanon
Valley led early in the game, but the Tigers took a small
lead by halftime and maintained it into the fourth quarter.

Late in the game Landa, the Valley's best player, fouled
out and Pettit soon took over with his outside shooting. The
Tigers closed with a rush and won 89-76.
The Dutchmen earned national notoriety for giving LSU
such a contest, but that was of little solace to the players.
"We were very disappointed when we lost," said Sorren-
tino. "Even though many people thought that it was a great
thing, we were down. We thought we could beat them. We
didn't feel that by staying with them we accomplished any-
thing—we lost the ball game."
Today, Lebanon Valley's greatest basketball team is
spread across the country: Landa lives in Trevose, coaching
college basketball: Vought is a chemist, living in Landisville:
Miller also is a chemist, and lives in Perkasie: Furda is a
business manager in Bridgewater, New lersey: Finkelstein,
who changed his name to Fields, is a physician in Miami
Gluntz lives in Hershey and is director of international
technical services for Hershey Foods: Grider is a teacher in
Hilton Head, South Carolina: Blakeney is dean of Santa Bar-
bara High School in California: Handley is a lab technician
in Yardley: Kosier lives in Westtown: Marquette and Sor-
rentino remain at the College in administrative posts.
They admittedly were not impressed by their accomplish-
ments at the time: but now, looking back, they view the
experience with great fondness.
"I don't like to live in the past": says Gluntz, "after a while,
it's time to put away the clippings. But I'll tell you. to me,
playing on that team was probably one of the greatest times
of my life."
"We took it all in stride then," said Miller, "but when you
look back, you realize it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
It just all fell together for us. "
"Now that I've been coaching here on the Division Three
level," says Sorrentino, "1 realize the feat that we pulled
off. This was probably one of the biggest things that ever
came along at Lebanon Valley."
"You see the whole tournament on television today, but
to sit back and think that we were in the final 16. the size
school that we were, it's really remarkable."
"When we look back on it, we know it was a very unusual
thing," said Marquette, "Perhaps that's why it has taken on
increased appreciation in our minds."
"It's a big thrill to think that you were part of a team like
that," says Miller fondly.
"It's an honor to the College and to us that people still
remember that," says Landa. "It's a pride thing for us. Peo-
ple I bump into down in Philadelphia from time to time still
bring It up: it really makes you proud. "

Coach Gordie Foster congratulates Bert Kreigh
Bert Kreigh, a junior management major from Grantville,
earned his place in the LVC history books and joined the
elite 1,000-point club on February 4, midway through his
2 1 -point performance against Elizabethtown College.
Kreigh achieved the coveted scoring plateau in only two
years of play at LVC (he transferred here after playing his
freshman year at Randolph-Macon College), scoring 450
points in his first season and reaching the mark in only the
twentieth game of the 1984-85 season.
His history-making bucket came during a week when he
led the entire nation in individual points scored for Division
III schools and on the day he was selected the Eastern Col-
leges Athletic Conference co-player of the week. That se-
lection was due, in part, to his outstanding performance in
a 124-122 point triple-overtime victory over Allentown Col-
lege. His career-high 47-point, 2 5-rebound performance,
which included sinking the two game-winning free throws,
gave the Valley the hard-fought win.
Throughout the season, Kreigh's name consistently ap-
peared at the top of the team statistics as he led the Flying
Dutchmen in total rebounds, blocked shots and steals. He
also holds the season's single game high for points scored
(47), rebounds (25), and steals (7).
With his senior year ahead of him, who knows what his
final statistics will be.

ELLER SPEAKS ON
Former Minnesota Viking Carl Eller was
the guest speaker at this year's Second
Semester Opening Convocation, sched-
uled for the first time as an evening
Bitterly cold weather resulted in an
audience that was somewhat smaller
than anticipated, but those who braved
the near-zero temperatures were
warmed by Eller's message.
Eller. one of the "Purple Gang" as the
Viking defensive line was called, was
named all-pro in 1968. and during sub-
sequent years he and other members of
the front four helped the Vikings into
twelve playoffs, eight championship
games and four superbowls. But it was
his "fifth superbowl." his victory over
drug and alcohol addiction, that he
spoke of at The Valley.
He began his address by explaining
that he chose the title "The Fifth Su-
perbowl" because in four attempts, the
Vikings never succeeded in winning a
Superbowl. But he has succeeded in
winning the fifth. "That's my greatest
victory." he told the audience.
Eller's message touched the adults in
the audience, but more importantly, he
touched the high school students
brought to the program by their advi-
sors. The students responded to his no-
nonsense confessions of how he slid
He told them it all seemed very in-

Lebanon Valley College President Dr.
Arthur L. Peterson said the new pro-
grams are a part of the school's six-year
strategy to strengthen undergraduate
programs while responding to the
professional needs of older students.
Each program has been designed to
maintain the humanizing traditions of a
liberal arts education while answering
the needs of a rapidly changing tech-
MASTER OF BUSINESS
The Master of Business Administration
program is the result of an agreement
between Lebanon Valley College and
the Philadelphia College of Textiles and
Sciences. Peterson, who approved the
agreement, said the MBA courses will
be taught primarily by members of the
Philadelphia college's graduate faculty.
He noted that all the courses, as well as
any needed prerequisites, can be com-
pleted in Annville.
The addition of a graduate program
at LVC is expected to benefit the busi-
ness community as well as students.
While students will use the program to
advance their careers, businesses will
use it as a tool for educating employees.
Dr. lames P. Gallagher, president of the
Philadelphia College of Textiles and Sci-
ences, said: "We're delighted to form
this partnership with Lebanon Valley
College so that we can offer our MBA
program to the residents of Central
Dr. Richard Reed. Lebanon Valley Col-
lege vice president and dean of the fac-
ulty, explained that the MBA program
includes thirty graduate credits of core
courses and nine credits of electives.
Course offerings will include: Applied
Economic Theory. Managerial Econom-
ics, Business Information Systems, Man-
agerial Marketing, Managerial Account-
ing, Financial Decision Making, Manage-
ment and Organizational Development.
Operations Management. Quantitative
Analysis, and Business Policy Seminar.
Prerequisites required by the Phila-
delphia College of Textiles and Science
include: statistics, economics, account-
ing, finance, marketing, management,
and computer science.
The Philadelphia College of Textiles
and Science was founded in 1884 by a
group of manufacturers who sought to
improve the quality of their products by
educating their employees. Today,
about half of the undergraduate stu-
dents at the college are enrolled in busi-
ness programs, including accounting,
marketing, finance, management and
computer science. The MBA program,
introduced in 1976. has gained respect
among Pennsylvania business leaders
and is offered at the Philadelphia Col-
lege of Textiles and Science campus in
northwest Philadelphia and in Bucks
NEW UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES
Lebanon Valley College undergradu-
ate students will benefit from the board
of trustees' decision to approve three
new baccalaureate programs and four
associate's degree programs.
Students may now pursue a Bachelor
of Science or a Bachelor of Arts degree
in general studies. The general studies
programs offer students a chance to
sample interdisciplinary courses and .
gain knowledge balanced among the
The Valley 16
humanities, sciences and mathematics.
It provides a liberal education that does
not ignore the importance of either new
technologies or the lessons of the past
as expressed in art, history and litera-
ture. In addition, a bachelors degree in
general studies is an excellent spring-
board for graduate study in many fields.
A more specific program is the bach-
elor of science with a major in admin-
istration for nursing personnel. This
program is designed for nurses inter-
ested in moving into management or
personnel supervision. Students who
have already achieved the designation
of Registered Nurse will be granted sixty
hours of academic credit toward the de-
gree. They will then concentrate on
courses stressing management of peo-
ple and finances. Courses in ethics, cul-
ture, sociology, psychology, and spe-
cial, field-related topics will round out
Like the new nursing degree, the
Bachelor of Music with a major in sound
recording technology is field-specific.
Meeting the needs of a rapidly expand-
ing audio field requires engineers who
can speak the language of mixed tech-
nologies and respond quickly to tech-
nical changes while keeping aesthetic
standards. To that end, this program
provides such courses as electronics,
computer science, and physics, which
are added to a liberal arts core.
In keeping with LVC's tradition of ac-
ademic rigor, this new program also re-
quires all of its graduates to be fully
qualified musicians, in addition to being
trained in sound recording.
Two-year associate's degrees are in-
creasingly desirable for adult learners
who are launching second careers as
well as for young people with specific
job goals. Lebanon Valley College is ex-
panding its reach toward such students
in its new associate's degree programs.
Three of the associate's degree pro-
grams approved by the trustees are de-
signed to place equal emphasis on lib-
eral arts and field-specific courses, while
the two new associate's programs in
general studies are purposely non-
The Associate of Applied Science pro-
grams in hotel administration, travel
administration, and food service admin-
istration train students for positions of
responsibility in those fields. In addition
to career training, each program offers
a sound basis in management tech-
niques, executive development and
ethics, as well as a firm grounding in the
Courses in the hotel administration
program, for example, train students for
management and supervisory careers
in the front offices, sales departments,
restaurants and housekeeping depart-
ments of resorts, hotels and such insti-
tutions as group homes and the new
senior care centers.
Food service administrators will be
prepared for careers with restaurant
and/or hotel chains, catering firms,
schools, hospitals, nursing homes and
Travel administration courses center
on a growing industry that needs per-
sonnel in its agencies, ticketing opera-
tions, city and state convention and
tourism bureaus, and marketing
The general studies program, leading
to an Associate of Arts or an Associate
of Science degree, offers the same
blend of courses as does the baccalau-
reate degree, but within the context of
a two-year program. It allows for a con-
centration in any of the college's more
than thirty-five majors, while requiring
coursework in such areas as ethics,
puter studies, and aesthetics.
This flexible degree can be used to
add college courses to the practical
knowledge gained from a working en-
vironment, or it can be the start of a
fuller formal education. For example,
the college expects the general studies
program to be very popular with stu-
dents interested in the allied health sci-
ence program offered in conjunction
with Thomas Jefferson University, Col-
lege of Allied Health Science. Such stu-
dents would leave Lebanon Valley Col-
lege with an Associate of Science
degree and would go on to lefferson to
complete a Bachelor of Science degree.
In addition to the new degree pro-
grams, a new certificate program in
banking has been approved by the
Dean of Continuing Education. Certifi-
cates are now offered in accounting,
management, marketing, business com-
puting and banking.

That his Messiahship would tear

Join Our Endowment Society
Your College's growth and development can be
assisted greatly through legacies from its alumns
and friends. Mary McCurdy Graham '30 left a
legacy of endowed biology scholarships. Many
LVC students will benefit from this act of love for
her alma mater.
The LVC Development Office suggests a bequest
wording to be included in a will as follows:
"I give and bequeath to Lebanon Valley College, Annville,
Pennsylvania, a Pennsylvania Corporation, the sum of
($ ), the principal and income of which
^re to be used in such manner as the Board of Trustees of
said college, in its sole discretion, may determine."
