From the Editor: 

Former assistant director of communications, lody Rathgeb, recently 
joined The Daily News as editor of the family section. We wish her only 
the best in her newspaper career; we'll certainly miss her vitality and 
special knack with Valley stories. 

Former director of communications. Mary Williams, moved to Cleveland, 
Ohio, in lanuary. to live near her daughter and grandchildren. During her 
time here. Mary helped create a new "look" for LVC publications We 
wish her Godspeed, and much happiness in her new life. 

The focus of this issue is "community service." The pioneering spirit 
which George and Lillie Struble brought to LVC years ago continues to 
be the driving force for todays students and employees. 

Students help save lives. College employees help care for the area's 
needy, and a new MBA program meets the needs of local business 

At LVC. everyone gets involved, everyone heightens the quality of life in 
some way. 

We hope you enjoy this issue, and enjoy reading about the many ways 
that LVC says "Thanks" to the community for its support.

The Struble Saga 

A Pioneer Spirit of Adventure 

by Edna J. Carmean 

The Struble's vine-covered, English 
Cottage on Ulrich Street has become 
a landmark for the citizens of Annville 
and for generations of college 
students. It's a place marked by 
warmth and hospitality, because of 
the people who live there. 

Dr. George G. Struble came to the 
Lebanon Valley from the mid-west, but 
he is quick to explain that he traces 
his ancestry back to Pennsylvania. 

"According to family belief," he said, 
"the first American Struble was a Hes- 
sian soldier hired by King George III 
to fight the colonists. After the Revolu- 
tionary War, he stayed on, married a 
Pennsylvania German girl, and 
became an American." George says 
the family eventually moved west to Il- 
linois, where his father was born. 

George's father, a talented and am- 
bitious young man. decided to 
become a doctor. After graduation 
from Northwestern University, he mar- 
ried a trained nurse and set up a prac- 
tice in Inwood, a small town in the 
northwest corner of Iowa. It was 
there— in 1900— that George was 

George learned many lessons in 
responsibility from his father. He 
remembers the bitter winters of Iowa 
and how his dad made house calls in 
a horse-drawn sleigh. For the trip 
home, the doctor would don his fur 
coat, wrap himself in a buffalo robe, 
say "Giddap" and go to sleep. And 
the horse always brought him safely 

When George was nine, his father 
became restless with the practice of 
medicine in Iowa. Oklahoma was 
much in the news then, the Indian Ter- 
ritory having become a state two 
years before. Opportunities seemed 
limitless. His father bought a farm 
from an Oklahoma Indian and moved 
the family south. Unfortunately, the In- 
dian hadn't really owned the land he 
had sold. It belonged to another In- 
dian, and that had to be straightened 

out before the Strubles could claim 

Young George found the move excit- 
ing. The family furniture was packed in 
one end of a freight car. with the 
stable contents, including the horses, 
in the other end. George and his 
father rode the freight car, too. They 
slept on mattresses piled atop the fur- 
niture, and kept the horses fed and 

The Strubles didn't stay long on the 
Oklahoma farm. Education for George 
was becoming a series of 
transplants— Iowa. Oklahoma, Illinois 
and Kansas. 

After George finished his |unior year 
of high school, his father bought a 
medical practice in Glasgow, Kansas, 
where he practiced medicine and ran 
a drug store until his death (from over- 

exertion) at the age of 92. 

George entered the University of 
Kansas at Lawrence in September of 
1918. "World War II was going on 
then." he said, "and I was made a 
member of the Students Army Train- 
ing Corps (SATC) unit. We slept in bar- 
racks and drilled with empty guns. I 
played an alto horn in the SATC band. 
But my army career was short. The Ar- 
mistice was signed in November, and 
we were mustered out by Christmas." 

About the time George was starting 
elementary school in Iowa, Lillie 
Strand was growing up in neighboring 
Nebraska. The youngest of five chil- 
dren, she was born— to Norwegian 
parents— on a farm in the central part 
of the state, west of Lincoln. When 
Lillie was four, the family moved to 
Aurora, where she started school. But 

The Valley 3 

Lillie remembers spending many 
summers on the farm. "We lived in a 
sod house out there," she said. 
"There was no wood with which to 
build houses. We could look to the 
horizon and not see a single tree. We 
even used cow dung for fuel. The 
men would plow up long strips of 
prairie sod, cut them into squares, 
and use them as building blocks. The 
house was cool in summer and warm 
in winter. One summer I built my own 
little sod house. 

Lillie had one daily job she 
enjoyed— her five-mile trip astride a 
horse to fetch the mail from the 
nearest rural delivery box. "My 
mother was a lady" remarked George 
as Lillie talked about her horseback 
riding. "She rode side-saddle." And 
Lillie retorted, "Well. I made myself a 
divided skirt." 

Lillie was fourteen when her father 
traded his Nebraska farm for one 
near Independence, Kansas, a large 
town near the Oklahoma border, and 
moved his family there. This was oil 
territory, but they found only gas 
when they drilled. They joined the 
thousands of gas well owners in the 
area. The gas company bought the 
output, and gas was a cheap and 
ready fuel. 

Lillie, valedictorian of her high 
school class in Independence, had 
taken the Normal course, which 
prepared her for teaching. Yet she 
had trouble finding a job. "I was a lit- 
tle scrawny thing," she said ruefully, 
"and no one would hire me." She 
finally landed a position as a teacher 
of four pupils in a western Kansas, 
one-room country school. In addition 
to teaching, she kept the room clean 
and took care of the stove. 

Life was never dull. One afternoon, 
hearing a strange noise outside, she 
opened the door to find a large rat- 
tlesnake coiled on the step, ready to 
strike. She remembers slamming the 
door in a hurry. 

"Another afternoon," said Lillie, "1 
stayed after school to do some work 
for the next day. I heard a horse 
galloping up to a stop by the door. It 
was a girl from the family where 1 
boarded. She shouted that 1 should 
come home at once. A prairie fire up 
north was headed our way. I could 
see the black smoke in the distance. 
There was no room on the horse for 
me. so 1 ran all the way home, about a 
mile. They told me the men were all 
up north setting a back-fire. For fear it 
might not work, they said I should 
pack my belongings and be ready for 
a quick escape. The women were 
busy cooking up quantities of food. 
But the back-fire worked, and the fire 
fighters had plenty of hot food when 
they came back to the house." 

After that year of teaching. Lillie 
went to the University at Lawrence 
and enrolled as a mathematics major. 
With the war making the future seem 
so uncertain, she dropped out after 
the first year and taught mathematics 
in El Dorado, Kansas. Then she went 
back to the University and there met 
George. "It was at Christian Endeavor 
in a Disciples of Christ church in 
Lawrence," said Lillie. "We were both 
active in that group." 

"After graduation in lanuary of 1921, 
Lillie found a job teaching high school 
math and physics in Bancroft, Idaho, a 
small town with a 99 percent Mormon 
population. She lived with a Mormon 
family and made many friends there. 
(Her skills as a math teacher became 
legendary. Later on, she tutored many 

a high school student having trouble 
with the subject.) 

George stayed at the University an 
extra year to earn his Master's degree. 
The young couple, now engaged, 
agreed they would teach after mar- 
riage, and they hoped it could be in 
some interesting and unusual place. 
They found that place when they were 
hired by officials of the Philippine 
government to teach English in their 
schools for two years. 

At two o'clock in the afternoon of 
May 7, 1923, George and Lillie were 
married in a quiet ceremony at the 
home of Lillie's parents in In- 
dependence. "And at four o'clock," 
said George, "we were on a train 
headed for the Philippines." George's 
father was on the train, too. He had 
come for the wedding and started 
right back home to Glasgow. Lillie had 
told some of her friends from Idaho 
which train the couple would be tak- 
ing, and these friends were at the sta- 
tion to greet them on their brief stop. 

At Seattle they boarded the "Presi- 
dent lackson." which was to be their 
home for a month. Ships of the Presi- 
dent line carried both passengers and 
cargo so there were stops in )apan 
and China. They got acquainted with 
the other passengers, including some 
Americans going out to teach. When 
they docked at Shanghai, one new 
friend, a Chinese gentleman, invited 
them ashore for a Chinese meal; they 
travelled to the restaurant by rickshaw. 

"There were eighteen courses to the 
meal," said Lillie, "and I remember 

The Valley 4 

one course was watermelon seeds. 
But the most exciting part of that ex- 
cursion was on the way back to the 
ship. We got into the one-passenger 
rickshaws again. My richshaw driver 
didn't follow the others; instead, he 
turned off on a different road. 1 was so 
scared! 1 thought 1 was being kidnap- 
ped. But we soon arrived back at the 
ship. He had just chosen a different 

At Manila, they were assigned for 
the first year to the schools of lloilo, a 
large port city. Since the people spoke 
so many different dialects, a law had 
been passed that the children must all 
be taught English as a common 
language. The English teachers were 
all Americans, and they were told that 
nothing except English could be 
spoken in their classrooms. The se- 
cond year, they were sent by the 
Bureau of Education to Dangued, a 
town in northern Luzon, the largest 
island in the chain. George was made 
principal of the high school of about 
three hundred pupils. 'And that is 
where Lillie started her first library," 
said George. "There was a hodge- 
podge of some 300 books. She spent 
many hours cataloguing them and 
preparing them to be checked out." 

When that year was over and the 

Strubles returned to the United States, 
George taught a year of freshman 
English at Baker University, in Baldwin. 
Kansas, and three years at the Univer- 
sity of North Dakota in Grand Forks. 
From there they moved to Madison, 
Wisconsin, where George studied for 
his doctorate at the University, and 
Lillie worked in the Capitol building to 
help the family finances. 

In 1931, George was awarded his 
Ph.D., and they came to Annville, 
where he had been hired to teach 
English at Lebanon Valley College. For 
the first time in their lives, George and 
Lillie Struble put down roots. They 
joined the College church, started a 
family, and, in 1938, built their first 
and permanent home two blocks 
from campus. 

Dr. Struble taught freshman English 
at Lebanon Valley College for 39 years 
and touched the lives of thousands of 
students during that time. Many alum- 
ni still remember the autobiographical 
themes he assigned early in their col- 
lege careers. In order to foster creative 
writing, Dr. Struble started the Green 
Blotter Club. For entrance, students 
were required to submit anonymous 
samples of their work. Only after the 
members had voted did they learn the 
identities of the applicants. It was con-

sidered an honor to belong to this 
club. Meetings were held in the Stru- 
ble living room, where they read and 
discussed new work by their members 
before enjoying Lillie's tea and 

When Lillie decided Annville needed 
a public library, several friends agreed 
with her, and they went to work on the 
project. In the spring of 1940, they 
established a shelf of 12 5 books in a 
gift shop on Main Street, The books 
were all donated and mostly for 
children. The little library grew as it 
moved successively to the Struble 
garage, to the Water Company 
building, to a vacated barber shop, 
and, in 1944, to lohn McClure's base- 
ment on Main Street. By the time it 
moved to its own building, in 1950, 
the Annville Free Library Association 
had been incorporated. With 5,541 
books, no longer just for children, it 
was now a library for the whole town. 

The Valley 5 

The new building on Main Street 
was a gift from Mr. and Mrs. Gideon 
Kreider, [r., who had been loyal sup- 
porters of the library from the first. 
The Kreiders refused to have the 
building named for them, however, 
saying if the citizens felt it was their 
library, they would support it. This 
proved to be true. As the library grew, 
a small trained staff was needed, but 
it has always been supported by a 
loyal corps of volunteers, with Lillie 
Struble a guiding spirit. It is now open 
to the public every day but Sunday. 
The inventory of 1986 shows a total 
of 18,341 books and a yearly circula- 
tion of almost 58,000. Today the 
Colonial-style building is crowded, 
and an addition is being planned, "I 
am proud," said Lillie, "that the library 
has always operated within its 
budget. And I'm overwhelmed by the 
support it has been given by the 

The community appreciates Lillie 
Struble In February, 1969, after 28 
years as president of the Annville 
Free Library Association, she was 
honored by the laycees at a 
testimonial dinner. In part, the cita- 
tion said, "Her determination and 
tenacity generated the enthusiasm 
which resulted in the handsome 
building which stands on Main Street 
today— The Annville Free Library," 

In 1952, Lillie was asked to establish 
the first LVC book store. She ran it for 
15 years. At first, to avoid competi- 
tion with an Annville merchant, she 
could sell only text books. Then she 
gradually branched out with other 
items needed by college students. 
Her most embarrasing purchase, she 
remembers, was long red underwear. 
The salesman had said they were "all 
the rage with college students" Lillie 
said, "I bought one dozen. And it 
took years to get rid of them." 

In 1949, George had become chair- 
man of the LVC English department. 
In summers, he continued to hone his 
language skills. He studied French at 
Laval University in Quebec, and. with 
Lillie, studied French at the Univer- 
sities of Neuchatel and Lausanne in 
Switzerland and German at the 
University of Innsbruch in the 
Tyrolean Alps. They shared their 
learning by establishing the LVC 

French Club in 1953. 

A true scholar. Dr. Struble ex- 
panded his achievements during his 
years at LVC. In 1954, he was asked to 
join the staff of a Temple University 
program offering graduate study for 
teachers. He gained international 
recognition in 1964, when he was in- 
vited to read a paper before the In- 
ternational Association of Language 
and Literature in Liege, Belgium. In 
1973, he appeared before the same 
group in Ottawa, Canada. 

The Strubles' two children carry on 
the family tradition of scholarship. Dr. 
George W. Struble, a mathematician, 
is head of the Computer Science 
department at Willamette University 
in Oregon. Trygve Struble Freed 
earned a Master's degree in French 
Literature, (Her husband, a physicist, 
is assistant dean of the School of 
Science at Penn State University.) 
Their parents fostered in both of 
them traits beyond formal 
education— a love of music and the 
outdoors and, above all. a pioneer 
spirit of adventure. 

Dr. Struble retired from the active 
faculty in 1970, but he continued to 
teach at least one course until 1984. 
His lectures were popular with the 
students. He became well known for 
his use of the magazine Time. 
especially in his Word Study course. 
"English is not a dead language," he 
said, "It is constantly changing. And 
77me magazine reflects that change." 
He no longer teaches, but he con- 
tinues to study. This semester he at- 
tends a 9:30 a.m. German class at the 
College. And Lillie keeps a regular 
schedule at the Annville Free Library. 

They built, they nurtured, they planted— 
and now they tend their garden.

Leadership Builds an 
Avenue to the Future 

(Top) President Arthur L. Peterson presents the 
1986 Founders Day Award to leffrey I. Burdge, chair- 
man and chief executive officer of Harsco 

(Bottoml Clifford 

L. lones, 1986 Founders Day 

The Valley 6 

On February 25, Jeffrey I. Burdge received Lebanon 
Valley College's annual Founders Day Award given, as 
the inscription states, "For unselfish and unusual com- 
munity service in founding avenues leading to the 

That inscription is an apt one for "The Leadership 
College," because those who create our avenues to the 
future— the trail-blazers— demonstrate exceptional 
leadership ability. 

Burdge, chairman and chief executive officer at 
Harsco Corporation in Camp Hill, is a community 
leader who has blazed many trails of service. In addi- 
tion to his long career at Harsco— starting in 1953 as an 
auditor in the company's Heckett Division in Butler and 
making a steady climb to his current position— Burdge 
serves in corporate directorships on seven local and 
state boards. His community involvement includes a 
wide range of interests: Harrisburg's Polyclinic Medical 
Center and YMCA. the Pennsylvania Chamber of Com- 
merce, Goodwill Industries, Pennsylvanians for Effec- 
tive Government, and the Capitol Campus of the Penn- 
sylvania State University. 

President Arthur L. Peterson said of Burdge at the 
ceremony, "Mr. Burdge continues to work unceasingly 
for others. Volunteering his time to serve as chairman 
of the Professional Activities Committee at Harrisburg 
Polyclinic Medical Center, he ensures smooth opera- 
tion of a constructive, caring institution. Lending his 
leadership to a fund drive for Goodwill Industries, he 
stands as a beacon to the lost and lonely. Sharing his 
expertise with other businessmen as chairman of the 
Pennsylvania Chamber of Commerce, he assures a 
bright future for the leaders of tomorrow." 

The speaker for Founders Day 1986, Clifford L. lones, 
also has been a trail-blazer on the state level. President 
of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Commerce since 
1983, (ones has served the state in three cabinet posts, 
as chairman of the Republic State Committee, and as a 
member of the Pennsylvania Public Utility 

lones launched his public service career as executive 
director of the Lawrence County Council of the Boy 
Scouts of America in 1951. Prior to joining state 
government, he served in the laycees, two chambers of 
commerce, and CAN-DO, Inc., a non-profit industrial 
development corporation. 

In 1963, he was named deputy secretary of Com- 
merce for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; in 1967, 
he was named secretary of that department. He also 
served the state as secretary of the Department of 
Labor and Industry and secretary of the Department of 
Environmental Resources. 

In his speech, "The Corporation and the Community," 
lones commented on the problems of today's corpora- 
tions as well as the needs and expectations of their 
communities. "The corporation and the community 
really need each other," he said. "It all comes down to 
one factor: people." 

EMTs at LVC: 

Double Duty for Annville 
and the Campus 

by Jody Rathgeb 

Paramedic leff Ongnano "If it's a life-threatening situation, you're 
going to go" 

You can identify them by their pagers. Spot the pager 
hanging from a belt or attached to a textbook, and 
you've spotted someone who might some day save 
your life. Indeed, that is how they recognize each other 
at first. 

They are Lebanon Valley College students who volun- 
teer to work with the Emergency Medical Services 
System in Lebanon County. Some are emergency 
medical technicians; two are paramedics; others are tak- 
ing classes to earn EMT status. All are members of an 
informal, loosely-organized, and unofficial campus ser- 
vice group providing a vital service to the community of 

Students who become involved with the fire company 
and ambulance service at Union Hose Company in 
Annville do so through their own informal networking. 
If they have done first-aid work in their home towns, 
they start asking questions about ambulance running as 
soon as they arrive on campus. Or they may become in- 
terested by talking with other LVC students already 
working with Union Hose Company. Stacie Micheel, for 
example, a sophomore from King of Prussia, Penn- 
sylvania, noticed certain students wearing pagers and 
inquired about it. "1 started talking with people who 
directed me to Jeff Cirignano, and he got me the ap- 
plication," she explains. Cirignano, a senior from Saddle 
Brook, New Jersey, is a paramedic for both Union Hose 
and Palmyra's Emergency Medical Services. 

The Valley 7 

Other students entered this unofficial service group 
through much the same method. All it takes to "belong," 
they say. is sincere interest in helping others and a will- 
ingness to add EMT courses to their regular college 

The students who "run" do so for a variety of reasons; 
sometimes, even they are unable to explain themselves 
beyond a shrug and the comment, "It helps people." 
Certainly, some plan on a medical-related career: 
Cirignano and Rhea Lippe hope to work as medics 
when they graduate from LVC and Micheel will apply to 
medical schools. But not all: Geoff Howson is a 
psychology major, and religion major Keith Littlewood 
plans on seminary after college. 

Perhaps Littlewood states the reasoning most simply 
when he says. "You get to help people when they need 
it the most." 

It may sound simple, but it's not. What happens when 
you are just sitting down to take an exam, and a "Code 
Blue" call comes in? How can you balance studying for 
your own future with the idea of helping someone else 
who may not have any future at all? And how do you 
explain to an unsympathetic professor that your "class 
cutting" saved a life? 

"For the most part, the professors understand." says 
Cirignano. "Many of them live in Annville, so they know 
that some day it may be their own family that needs 
help. And if you make an effort to keep up with the 
work you've missed, they'll help." 

While each student approaches the problem of miss- 
ing classes for ambulance runs in his or her own way, as 

a group they have created their own unwritten code of 

"At the beginning of the semester, 1 talk with my 
teachers to ask them if I can go to calls, and I've never 
had one who said I couldn't," says Howson, a senior 
from Red Bank. New Jersey "Of course, I would stay for 
an exam and turn my pager off." 

Micheel uses the same sort of judgment. "If the call is 
for a routine transport (taking a non-emergency patient 
to the hospital), I'm not going to miss class," she says. 
"But if it's an emergency call, I'm more likely to make 
the call than go to class." 

"If you've already missed a number of classes, you 
dread the thought of missing more," notes Cirignano. 
"But if it's a life-threatening situation, you're going to 

Part of the balance and judgment is making sure that 
the patient is getting care from someone. Lippe. an allied 
health services major from Piscataway, New lersey, ex- 
plains by describing her own situation: "at one point in 
the semester, I knew I had to buckle down for classes, 
and during finals I missed three calls. But I knew that the 
calls were being taken care of, so it didn't bother me too 

Another difficulty in being a student/ambulance atten- 
dant is trying to keep up with two different sets of 
classes: LVC's and the state certification courses for 
emergency medical technicians. The core of training for 
ambulance personnel is an EMT course of 100 to 110 
hours offered at the Lebanon County Vo-Tech School. 
Union Hose Company sponsors those interested in the 

The Valley 8 

class and offers its own seminars which provide training 
aside from the actual certification. 

This means that the students are spending a great deal 
of time in classes for which they receive no college 
credit. Occasionally, their inability to receive academic 
credit bothers them. "My EMT training is six hours a 
week," says Littlewood, a junior from Roxbury, New 
lersey, "That's twice as much time as a college course. 
yet I am not allowed to receive credit even if it is a state- 
certified course. It doesn't make sense." 

Nevertheless, not one of the students would give up 
the volunteer work. For them, such things as credits and 
cuts become petty in the face of real danger. They're in 
it not for a grade, but to help others. 

"It's a personal challenge, but it's even more worth- 
while than that." says Cingnano "And it has its rewarding 
moments that make up for the ones that are not so 
rewarding. Some people look at us and think that we 
just like to drive fast and get through traffic, but if 
anyone is in it for that, they're not going to last long." 

"You don't hear praise too often," adds Lippe. "When 
you do hear it, it's sometimes second- or third-hand." 

"A lot of people think that what I do is gross, and they 
say they wouldn't be able to do it." says Micheel. "But 
I'd rather be there to help." 

,'im Bohr, president of Union Hose Company, is among 
those who appreciate the students who want to be 
there. "We're glad to have them, because we have never 
had more than enough volunteers." he says. The fire 
company particularly relies on the students during the 
day, when many volunteers cannot leave their employ- 
ment. "We follow a duty roster that puts each volunteer 
on duty about every fifth night. Without the college 
students, a person would go on duty every fourth night." 

Bohr understands, however, the realities of a college 
student's life. "When they go home for vacations, we 
have to readjust the schedule," he notes. "But we 
understand. Sometimes, I'm the one who has to remind 
them that they're in Annville because they're students at 
LVC We appreciate them, but we know why they're here 
in the first place." 

The good will is mutual. Says Lippe. "It's a good group 
of people in Annville. Often, you get a'lot of cynicism 
among ambulance people. Here, they're not cliquish, 
and people are willing to help you with your training. 
You don't find that in many places." 

How is it that these students— of diverse majors, and 
none from Lebanon county— have become so much a 
part of the Annville community? 

In answer, Cirignano points to the letterhead for the 
Emergency Health Services Federation. At the bottom, 
it reads, "The bottom line is patient care."

College employees help care 
for the area's needy 

by M.A. Weister 

A recession hit Lebanon County in 1983 when several 
area businesses closed. The unemployment rate sud- 
denly grew, the number of homeless dramatically in- 
creased, and, for the first time, a high number of single- 
parent families demanded attention. 

It wasn't long before members of Lebanon's social ser- 
vice agencies received increased requests for basic 
needs — clothing, homes and food. Members from 
each of the groups began meeting to discuss possible 
ways to help Lebanon's needy population. During those 
discussions, the idea arose for a program that would 
provide one free, hot meal per day to anyone who 
needed it. 

For the idea to work, however, start-up money, meal 
sites, and volunteers were needed. The task force 
turned to the Lebanon County Christian Ministries for 
help in carrying out the plan. Together, LCCM and the 
Salvation Army held the first free meal, unsure if anyone 
would show up. Many did. 

LVC employees played an important role in helping to 
start the successful meal program. 

"From the start the campus has been willing to con- 
tribute money and time," said Dr. lim Scott, professor of 
German, and current coordinator of campus efforts, 
"and the inspiration is simply the desire to help out 
others who are having a rough time." 

Dr. Leon Markowicz, professor of English, coordinated 
the initial campus efforts, urging LVC staff and faculty 
members to raise $800 for food and other necessary 
start-up supplies. Markowicz also recruited the initial 
team of volunteers to cook and serve meals. 

Now. three years later, LVC volunteers still take their 
turn in the kitchen once a month, mostly on Saturdays 
or Sundays when the churches or other volunteer 
groups are holding services. 

Sylvia Lehman, LCCM's coordinator of the Free Noon 
Meals Program, visits each meal site each day. 

"1 keep an eye out for which food goes over well," said 
Lehman, "and the College's Shepherd's Pie is a big 

The Valley 9 

LVC volunteers are only part of a growing list of those 
donating their time to the successful free meals pro- 
gram; the roster of just fourteen groups three years ago 
has blossomed into approximately 60 churches, as well 
as the College the Beth-Israel Synagogue-Center, the 
Lebanon Catholic High School and the Salvation Army. 

"This is the most unusual program of its kind that I've 
come in contact with,'' said Elizabeth Greer, executive 
director of LCCM, "because we use a different location 
every day and the groups take turns using each other's 
facilities without conflicts." 

Howard L. Applegate, vice president, dean of continu- 
ing education and free meal volunteer, notes that many 
involved with the program wish they could do more. 

Some find it hard to cope with the obvious difficulties 
of the poor or homeless, but realize what their gift of 
time means. 

Indeed, the need for the Free Noon Meals Program 
continues. To date, the program serves about 4000 
people per month, reports Greer. 

LVC students, too, have become aware of the free 
meals program and want to help. This year, money 
made from Alpha Phi Omega's (APO) and Gamma 
Sigma Sigma's (GSS) "Helping Hands" yearly fund-raiser 
will be donated to LCCM. 

"LCCM does an incredible job." said Applegate. 
"without them this program wouldn't exist." 

MBA Program 


a Community's 


by Jody Rathgeb 

Ask a question, get an answer: it's one of the most basic 
forms of education— one that can get lost in the shuffle 
of computer print-outs, complicated theory, and 
sophisticated testing procedures. 

Yet it was the simple, straightforward question-answer 
method that spawned the development of a Master of 
Business Administration degree at Lebanon Valley 

The question, from the Lebanon Valley Chamber of 
Commerce, was: Would it be possible to get an MBA 
program in Lebanon County? The eventual answer, from 
Lebanon Valley College: Yes, and it will be offered right 
here in Annville. 

"An overwhelming majority of the respondents 
(91.3%) favor the development of an MBA pro- 
gram in the Lebanon County area'.' 

— LVCC Survey of Businessmen 

Of course, the actual development of the current 
cooperative program between The Philadelphia College 
of Textiles and Science and Lebanon Valley College 
wasn't quite so simple. After a Chamber of Commerce 
survey determined that both interest and potential 
students existed, it was up to Lebanon Valley College to 
explore the alternatives. 

"The Colleges involvement has been one of response 
to community needs'.' 

—Howard Applegate, 
vice president and dean 
of continuing education. LVC 

The Valley 10 

Dr. Richard Reed, former dean of the faculty, began 
looking for a suitable program that could be offered on 
the LVC campus. The many considerations involved in 
the search included quality price, and the needs of 
potential Lebanon County MBA students. 

Meanwhile, the College and the community both had 
to prove their commitment to a cooperative program. 
Certain materials were needed in the library, for exam- 
ple, and funds were needed to provide them. 

'"We were asked to show our commitment, and we 
did. The business community raised almost 
$10,000 to provide money for resource materials. 

—David Wauls, 
former president. 
Lebanon Valley Chamber of Commerce 

Area corporations were certainly willing to make an in- 
vestment in the futures of their executives. Through the 
Lebanon Valley Chamber of Commerce, the following 
investors were found: ALCOA, American Bank and Trust 
Company, Boscov's. Butler Manufacturing Company, 
Cleaver Brooks division of AquaChem, Dauphin 
Deposit Bank and Trust Company, Farmers Trust Com- 
pany, General Electric Company, Hershey Foods Cor- 
poration, Lebanon Area Personnel Associates, Lebanon 
County Bankers Association, Lebanon Valley Chamber 
of Commerce, Lebanon Valley Offset, Palmyra In- 
dustries, Peoples National Bank, and Sterling Drug, Inc. 

"Throughout the process, there was an excellent 
working relationship between LVC and the Chamber. 
Our only problem was one of persistence'.' 

—David Wauls 

Finding a partner school was by far the most com- 
plicated part of the process. Based on the results of the 
Chamber's survey, the College was determined to offer 
an executive MBA program; that is, one designed for 
those working full time. 

"There's something to be gained from a classroom 
full of people who are working'.' 

— Don Bixler, 

MBA student and financial analyst, 

Hershey Foods Corporation 

The difference between an executive MBA program 
and one designed for full-time students goes beyond 
class scheduling times. Professors in the executive MBA 
program realize that their students represent a pool of 
experience, and the astute professor draws on that ex- 
perience in the classroom. In a sense each student is a 
teacher to the others. 

"There's a difference in teaching graduate students 
and undergraduate students. You're there for a dif- 
ferent reason'.' 

—Bill Toner 
MBA student and manager. 
Parts Department. Cleaver Brooks 

The executive MBA program also shows a sensitivity 
for the busy older student, who often has to juggle 
school, job and family in a complicated lifestyle. This 
does not mean it's an "easy" program— but it is flexible. 

The "suitable partner" was at last found in The 
Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science. Textile had 
been offering an executive MBA program since 1976 at 
its East Falls campus, and the school had already 
become involved in offering classes at a distance by 
scheduling the MBA course in Bucks County as well. 
Textile had both the quality and the type of program 
needed in Lebanon County. 

"When The Valley started talking seriously about 
an MBA program. I decided to go with it'.' 

—Bill Toner 

As soon as the two colleges reached an agreement, 
the plans for an MBA at LVC moved ahead rapidly, and 
classes began in the summer of 1985. The first students 
who enrolled were those who either had been search- 
ing for an appropriate and convenient program, or who 

were already enrolled in a program they found 
Tom Cusak. vice president for finance at Lebanon 
Valley Offset, who holds the distinction of being the 
very first person in the new program, notes that he saw 
convenience as a prime factor in his choice of pro- 
grams. When he received a Chamber newsletter an- 
nouncing the MBA, he had been on the verge of 
enrolling in a program that would have required much 
traveling. Others were attracted by the content of the 
program: both Don Bixler, a financial analyst with Her- 
shey Foods Corporation, and Angela Shutty, a tax ac- 
countant for Rite-Aid Corporation, had been dissatisfied 
with another school's program. 

"This \program\ seems to be more in tune with 
people who are working'.' 

—Don Bixler 

"Textile has more options for specialization'.' 

—Angela Shutty. 
MBA student and tax accountant. 
Rite-Aid Corporation 

What students seem to like about the MBA program at 
LVC corresponds with the reasoning behind an 
executive MBA: the classes fit their busy work 
schedules, the professors from Textile recognize and 
use the students' experience, and there is flexibility. 

"I'm willing to recognize that it's a growing 

—Tom Cusak. 
MBA student and vice president for finances, 
Lebanon Valley Offset 

"I have faith in the system." 

—Bill Toner 

There were, however, a few inevitable "bumps" at the 
beginning of the journey. It takes time to establish effi- 
cient communication links between faculty members 
and administrators at two separate institutions. The 
number of details to be coordinated is amazing. Yet, as 
each semester goes by, students enrolled in the pro- 
gram are finding a smoother ride in their travels to 
Master of Business Administration degrees. 

"We're now drawing heavily in Lancaster and 
Dauphin counties. People are drawn by the pro- 
gram's flexibility'.' 

—Howard Applegate 

The future, too, looks bright. The MBA program at 
Lebanon Valley College is gaining a good reputation as 
it serves the needs of both businesses and individuals. 
It provides an answer to the questions of many.

An Introduction to the Citizens 

of Annville, Pennsylvania 

>85, was a special day in the 
residents and also for the 

Sunday, December 15, 1 
lives of many Annville 

A publication party was held in the Little Theater, 
bringing together more than 200 community members 
with campus faculty, staff, and students to celebrate the 
publishing of Porches: An Introduction to the Citizens of Ann- 
ville. Pennsylvania by Philip A. Billings, professor of 
English, and Annville artist Dan Massad. 

It was Billings' conversation with local residents that 
formed the basis of the twelve free-verse poems con- 
tained in the book, and Massad took those occasions to 
do pencil portraits. 

During the December 15 celebration, Billings, his wife 
Sue, and Massad, read several poems; those who pro- 
vided material for the book enjoyed first listening and 
then signing autographs. 

"The event turned out well," said |im Scott, professor 
of German, "and it was a great boost for College and 
community relations." 

Billings' poems depict the lives of 15 Annville 
residents, ages 74 to 88. At least two of those citizens 
are familiar to many LVC alumni: George Struble, long 
time professor of English and former chairman of the 
department, and "Hot Dog" Frank Aftosmes. a well- 
known restaurateur and colorful Annville character. 
Struble and Aftosmes, along with Fannie Light, Addie 
Miller, Helen Mover, and all the others, have lived most 
of their lives in Annville. They have shared difficult 
times, most specifically the Depression, and most recall 
sitting outside on their porches during their younger 
days to visit with friends walking by. Each poem reveals 
how the subject dealt with his or her life. Some show 
mostly pain and bitterness, while others are proud and 
philosophical about adversity. Some show a great sense 
of humor. 

(Topi Author Philip A. Billings (Bottom) Artist Dan Massad 

"The book not only shows the lives and faces of these people'.' Billings 
notes, "but it also, indirectly gives a picture of the life of Annville in this 
century. "\n addition to being poetry, the pieces are also oral history and 
self portraits, and all together they read something like a novel'.'
