"Ella's Influence" 

The story of The LVC Auxiliary and its 

founder, Ella Augusta Gossard 

A Special Column From The 

"Foundations" was the theme I used in my 
brief remarks for the April 21st ground- 
breaking ceremonies for LVC's magnificent, 
new Edward H. Arnold Sports Center. But 
the "foundations" of which I spoke did not 
involve the mix of concrete and steel rods 
that will undergird our new sports arena. 
Rather, they referred to the more lasting 
underpinnings of our total institutional ef- 
fort; our broad based liberal arts cur- 
riculum; the continuing commitment and 
generous support of those College 
Trustees and other major givers who are 
making possible the construction of this 
much needed facility; and the dedication 
of our faculty and staff who continue to be 
good stewards of the educational heritage 
of this outstanding institution. These are 
the significant foundations upon which we 
build at LVC. 

Educational Foundation — Breadth 
and Balance 

In the Republic, you may recall Plato 
argues for "balance" in education. Re- 
ferring specifically to literary and musical 
education versus preparation in athletics, 
Plato warns us that overemphasis in one 
area can produce "over-civilized softness" 
on the one hand or "under-civilized hard- 
ness" on the other. He insists that "the pur- 
pose of education is to bring these elements 
into tune with one another by adjusting the 
tension of each to the right pitch." 

Although the nature of education has 
changed a good bit since Plato first wrote 
ages ago, more recent leaders and scholars 
from President Theodore Roosevelt to 
Arnold Toynbe have echoed Plato's teach- 
ing that "balance and breadth" are constant 
requirements of any sound educational 

We take seriously the wisdom of "balance 
and breadth" at Lebanon Valley College. 
Our general education requirements reflect 
a commitment to educating the whole per- 

son by exposing every student to courses 
that touch the spiritual, intellectual and 
physical sides of the personality. So, too, 
does our unique leadership studies pro- 
gram, described at length elsewhere in this 
issue, wherein we reify our belief that each 
of our graduates, beyond personal voca- 
tional success, has an obligation to be a 
"competent giver" to society as leader and/ 
or active participant in community affairs. 

Finally, in enhancing the learning en- 
vironment through the construction of the 
new Sports Center, we believe we are 
facilitating the "tension adjustment" for 
which Plato pleaded. In these days of in- 
creasing demands upon our students (in 
the laboratory, the classroom or the practice 
room) Plato's injunction about "balance" 
and "tension adjustment" is not out of date 
or out of place. It is a bit of wisdom which 
we all would do well to heed. 

Our new Sports Center, then, is not just 
a frivolous addition to our physical plant 
but rather an important facility which will 
contribute significantly to the success of 
our overall educational enterprise. 

Institutional Foundations - Continuing 

The second "foundation" of the Sports 
Center is an institutional foundation. It is 
the continuing commitment and generosi- 
ty of those Board members and friends of 
the College who have made this new 
building possible. Prime examples are 
Edward H. Arnold and Harlan R. Wengert 
whose pace-setting gifts have inspired us 
all and moved this important project 
months ahead of our planned schedule. 

The 125th Anniversary Committee has 
asked, and received permission, to name 
the Sports Center in honor of Edward H. 
Arnold, devoted College trustee and leader 
par excellence in the nation's trucking in- 
dustry and to name the main foyer in 
memory of the late Samuel K. Wengert, 
long-time member and officer of the Board, 
and revered Lebanon community and busi- 
ness leader. 

In addition to Ed Arnold and Harlan 
Wengert, literally scores of other Trustees 
and friends have contributed, often sacri- 
ficially, to make this new facility a reality. 

In the months to come all others in the 
College Community — faculty, staff, alum- 
ni and friends — will be asked to join with 
those who have already given to help bring 
this project to completion. Our present stu- 
dent body and generations of students, yet 
to come, will long benefit from this noble 
effort to enhance their learning environ- 
ment and make their college years healthier 
and happier. 

If the "breadth and balance" of the 
liberal arts is the raw concrete of which the 
foundation of this new building is com- 
posed, then the sacrificial giving of the 
College's devoted friends represent the 
steel reinforcing rods that give the building 
its strength and endurance — the "struc- 

tural steel" around which the College 
builds. In many cases, the early gifts have 
indeed come from individuals and families 
who have provided the financial sinew for 
LVC programs and buildings decade after 

The "People" Side of Our Foundation 

"People" constitute the third element of 
our Sports Center "foundation." 1 am con- 
fident that the faculty and staff who are 
responsible for all College learning ex- 
periences, formal or informal, will, with 
the addition of this new facility, dedicate 
themselves anew to the "education of high 
grade" for which Lebanon Valley College 
has been well known since its founding 121 
years ago. 

The new Arnold Sports Center, along 
with the Garber Science Center, Blair 
Music Center, the Mund College Center 
and Miller Chapel, will give us five out- 
standing college facilities of which any col- 
lege in the nation would be proud. It is 
time for us to "spread the word." 

Go Tell It On The Mountain 

A lovely spiritual with which we are all 
familiar is entitled "Go, Tell It On The 
Mountain." Although the context of this in- 
spirational music is religious, the underly- 
ing theme of "broadcasting the good news" 
is particularly appropriate for this issue of 
The Valley. As we noted in last year's an- 
nual report, Lebanon Valley College is a 
strong institution that is growing 
stronger— a vital, innovative place that is, in 
many areas, pointing the way, setting the 

Our scholars compete with the best and 
the brightest at the most prestigious grad- 
uate schools in the world. The number of 
LVC graduates who have become Fulbright 
scholars over the last decade, for example, 
far exceeds, on a per capita basis, the 
number of any college in our area. Recent 
studies of liberal arts colleges which pro- 
duce significant numbers of Ph.D.'s con- 
sistently rank us near the top in such fields 
as biology, chemistry and psychology. Our 
outstanding actuarial science program is 
the envy of our peer institutions, and the 
continuing professionalism and rigor of our 
various programs in music draw en- 
thusiastic accolades from professional 
musicians and music educators alike. 

Our unique leadership studies program 
has set us apart in this important and 
rapidly expanding field, and the resur- 
gence of our intercollegiate athletic pro- 
grams and expansion of intramural sports 
wUl now be accelerated with the early com- 
pletion of the Arnold Sports Center Recent 
substantial additions to the state-of-the-art 
computer equipment are matched by the 
sophisticated instruments of science 
available to undergraduate students at very 
few other schools. 

Now, we must "Go, TeU It On The Moun- 
tain." Alumni and friends can be immense-

Early Retirement for the President 

Some of you have been informed that, 
for health reasons, I find it necessary to 
retire later this summer. I take this step 
with great regret. Connie and I have come 
to love Lebanon Valley College and all it 
stands for. I will save my farewell message 
for the next issue of The Valley but I did 
want to express at this time my heartfelt 
gratitude for all you have done to support 
Lebanon Valley College during the years I 
have been privileged to be a part of this 
great institution.

From the Editor: 

Spring is the time for "new beginnings." So it is ap- 
propriate that in this issue, we include a story on "Leader- 
ship," the new focus at LVC. Dr Peterson's "Leadership Im- 
perative" has set the stage for the College's academic and 
community activities that will enhance the skills and 
knowledge of all those who are part of the LVC family. 

"New beginnings" also applies to the historical piece by 
Edna Carmean on the LVC Auxiliary. Today's Auxiliary 
continues to assist the College in a variety of ways, just as 
the founding women did years ago. 

Here, on campus, we welcome back Kathleen "Kitty" 
Thach, who has left the world of business for a "new 
beginning" as the College's director of alumni services and 
parents' programs. Kitty succeeds Frank Tavani '76, who is 
now at Lafayette College. 

All of us here at LVC hope that each of you is celebrating your own "new beginning" this

author of the piece "Off to See the Orient." Professor Ehrhart did indeed assist in the 
research for the article, and for that assistance The Valley staff is extremely grateful. 

Ella's Influence 

LVCs grande dame brought more than formal teas to 
the College in the early 1900's. 

by Edna J. Carmean 

Tiursday, November 20, 1919, was a special day for 
twenty-five women whom Ella Augusta Gossard had 
invited to meet in the big downstairs studio in Engle 
Hall that afternoon at 3:30. They were all friends of the College 
and were unanimous in adopting the Constitution and By- 
Laws which had been prepared in advance. They all signed 
the document, and the Women's Auxiliary of Lebanon Valley 
College w&s born. Mrs. Gossard served as temporary presi- 
dent untU she was elected to that office a few minutes later. 

The stated objective of the Auxiliary was; "to help Lebanon 
Valley especially, but not exclusively, in those needs which 
naturally appeal to women; to render supplementary aid in 
beautifying the grounds and buildings; to add to the comfort 
of the students in their dormitory life; and in general to pro- 
mote the welfare of the College in its finer interests." Meetings 
were set on the second Thursday of each month and dues 
would be one dollar. 

It was to be an association of women. According to the By- 
Laws, however, men could become associate members by pay- 
ing the annual dues, but they would have no right to vote or 
hold office. 

In October of 1926, the By-Laws were amended to provide 
that the wife of the president would automatically become the 
president of the Auxiliary. Mrs. Gossard served in that office 
during the rest of her husband's term. 

Attention for the first years was centered on the girls' dor- 
mitories. There were two of these — North Hall and South 
Hall. When another one was added in 1926, it was naturally 
called West Hall. Eventually there was an East Hall, too. The 
founding and nourishing of Lebanon Valley College had been 
a cooperative effort of many people and no one person was to 
be singled out for honor. (The exceptions were Engle Hall and 
Carnegie Library, both named for their donors.) There was 
plenty of work for the new Auxiliary in North and South 
Halls, whose furnishings were as unimaginative as their 

South Hall, on Main Street, was the original college 
building. Built in the 1850's, it had the center hall with open 
stairway, the high ceilings and the wide window sills of that 
period. Bedrooms for the girls were on the second and third 
floors. Part of the first floor was used by the College for 
various purposes, but there was a parlor where the girls could 
entertain. Although this building had considerable charm, 
many considered it old-fashioned and inferior to North Hall, 
which was built in 1905 with all the modern conveniences of 
the time. 

"The bank account grew through 
dues, food sales, and the annual 
birthday party when each guest 
brought a sack of pennies, one for 
each year of her life." 



Ella Augusta Gossard was organist and choir director for tier husband's 
church prior to coming to Annville. This photo was taken about the time that 
the LVC Auxiliary was formed. Though President George Gossard (president 
from 1912 to 1932) died in 1932, Ella remained in Annville and continued to at- 
tend the many campus events. 

North Hall stood where the Chapel now stands. It was a 
focus for campus life because the meals were served there. 
The kitchen was in the basement and food was hauled up on 
dumb waiters to the dining rooms on the first floor. At meal- 
time, students streamed across the campus and gathered on 
the broad front porch to wait for the sound of the bell — 
breakfast at seven, lunch at noon, dinner at six. Just inside the 
door, the large hall was also crammed with hungry students. 
North Hall coeds made a pretty sight as they stood on the 
open stairway leading to the second floor. This showcase for 
feminine pulchritude was enjoyed by the boys and envied by 
girls from other dorms. 

The Valley 4 

North Hall had a large and sunny parlor which was often 
the scene of campus social affairs. For many years, it was also 
where the Auxiliary held its monthly meetings. 

Much has been written about the accomplishments of Presi- 
dent George Gossard, but little about those of his wife in the 
Gossard's twenty years at the College. Ella Augusta Plitt 
Gossard was the daughter of a well-to-do Baltimore family 
and was trained in the arts of a southern lady of that period. 
Her plans to promote a gracious social life on campus were 
beset with difficulties. Worldly diversions — such as card- 
playing, dancing, alcohol and tobacco — - were forbidden, and 
rules for the girls were very restrictive. (It was a popular idea 
that this automatically controlled the boys.) 

At that time, students at Lebanon Valley were an un- 
sophisticated lot. A survey of occupations of fathers in the 
mid-twenties showed that the majority were farmers. (The 
LVC kitchen obviously catered to this farm background. One 
morning in March of 1921, North Hall girls were awakened by 
the smell of smoke. Down in the kitchen a large kettle of lard 
was heating for frying the breakfast potatoes. It caught fire. 
Before it was over, several dining room floor boards had to be 
ripped up and plaster torn off the wall. It was reported that 
smoke had entered every crevice of the building.) 

Mrs. Gossard started some traditions for campus social life 
which were faithfully followed for years: a Christmas banquet 
for the students, afternoon teas for each class, a formal dinner 
for the faculty, a senior class dinner, an alumni reception. And 
there was a continuous effort by the Women's Auxiliary to 
make daily life more pleasant for the students.

sewing machine, a Singer, for

The Philadelphia Branch 

In 1954, a Philadelphia branch of the Auxiliary was 
formed through the inspiration and enthusiasm of 
Mary Graham '30 and Lxsuisa Yardley '18. This group, 
composed of alumni, friends of the College, and 
mothers of students, has through the years been a 
tremendous help to LVC. 

The women have raised funds through a series of 
very imaginative and fruitful projects. For instance, 
an annual event for many years was the benefit party 
held in center city Philadelphia at one of the large 
stores such as Wanamakers. The members were kept 
busy all year long preparing prizes, selling tickets, ar- 
ranging publicity, and making a thousand and one 
things to sell. As a result, more than 200 guests paid 
an admission fee to attend these affairs, which 
resulted in a handsome profit to the Auxiliary. They 
were also great fun for everyone concerned. In all the 
fundraising of this group, there has been an accent 
on enjoyment, on sociability through picnics, lunch- 
eons, dinners, trips and bazaars. 

Like its parent organization, the Philadelphia 
Branch of the Auxiliary has helped to make campus 
life more comfortable and pleasant for the students, 
by paying for furniture and equipment for the dor- 
mitories and laboratories and supporting every fund 
drive. The Branch's work is now encouraged by the 
generosity of a trustee of the College who has of- 
fered to match each thousand dollars raised by the 
group. Since 1978, the members have earned $12,000 
which, with matching funds has meant a contribu- 
tion of $24,000 to the Garber Science Center. 

A group of LVC Auxiliary members were guests at 
the Holiday Luncheon of the Philadelphia Branch 
last November. It was held in Media, at the home of 
Martha Rudnicki '34. 

Eleanor Snoke is the current president of the 
Philadelphia branch. She and her co-workers are 
eager to increase the membership from among alum- 
ni and friends of the College who live in the 
Philadelphia area. In the words of Mrs. Louise 
Yardley, long-time treasurer of the organization, 
"There is joy in becoming acquainted while working 
together for a common objective." If interested, 
please write to or telephone President Snoke and 
you will be received with open arms. Her address is:

The Auxiliary took time to build a treasury and the women 
were cautious at first about spending the money which was so 
painfully slow in coming. By the second meeting, $38 had 
been collected from dues with only one expenditure: 50 cents 
for a "Minute Book." At the third meeting, a member sug- 
gested buying a vacuum cleaner. This met with a cool recep- 
tion. A broom was considered adequate equipment. At the 
next meeting, the woman who had made the initial sugges- 
tion arranged for a demonstration. This showed the large 
amount of dust to be collected by a vacuum cleaner after a 
room had been swept "with great thoroughness" with an or- 
dinary broom. There was still no action. Instead, they bought 
material for the members to make into curtains for both North 
and South Halls. (At meetings they sewed or mended for the 
College.) Finally, the vacuum cleaner was bought, the first big 
purchase. It cost $.44.10. 

In the fall of 1921, the second big purchase was made. A 
grand piano had been donated for North Hall parlor, and the 
women thought that South Hall also needed a piano. The one 
they bought cost $325. They paid $100 down and worked off 
the rest within six months. 

The bank account grew through dues, food sales, and the 
annual birthday party when each guest brought a sack of pen- 
nies, one for each year of her life. 

The women laid a new floor in North Hall parlor, at a cost of 
$205. In 1923, they bought their first sewing machine, a Singer, 
for $37.44. (Three years later, it cost them 17 cents to have it 

Although it is no longer mandatory for the wife of the college president to act 
as president of the Auxiliary, these wives have always been very much involv- 
ed. This year's co-presidents are Connie L. Peterson, wife of President Peterson 
and Marion S. Miller. Mrs. Miller is resuming a famOiar role. During the 17-year 
presidency of her husband, Dr. Frederic K. Miller, Marion was the very active 
president of the Women's Auxiliary. 

Connie and Marion are shown here in Bollinger Plaza (walkway from Main 
Street to campus), an annual project for the Auxiliary. Each year approximately 
$200 is donated for flowers and shrubbery plantings. The Auxiliary's two an- 
nual fund raising^ events are the fashion show and the concert presented by the 
LVC Concert Choir. One of the Auxiliary's current projects is the renovation of 
the President's office that will include new wallpaper, carpeting, and draperies.

Generations of devoted women have through hard work 
raised money and spent it wisely for the benefit of the College 
and its students. They have bought sewing machines, fur- 
niture, TV sets, rugs, shrubbery, lamps and pianos. They have 
supported every fund drive. In 1920, the women fretted over 
the purchase cf one vacuum cleaner. In one recent year alone, 
they presented four sweepers to the dormitories, in addition 
to carpeting for Faust Lounge, new kitchen floor tile and 
draperies for Vickroy Hall, bedding plants for the campus, 
and $4,000 worth of new furnishings for the lounge of a men's 

During its existence, the women have earned well over 
$100,000 for the Auxiliary. Much of the money has been raised 
through a succession of big and little projects: concerts, 
fashion shows, and sales of everything from flowers to White 
Elephants. They have written a popular Cook Book which is 
available for $5. This Spring, in addition to presenting the an- 
nual Fashion Show Luncheon and the Concert Choir concert 
in March, they also sponsored a concert by the Alumni 
Chorale the night before the 1987 Commencement. 

Today, the Auxiliary is not just a women's organization. Men 
are now welcomed as members. The Constitution was revised 
and the name changed to The Lebanon Valley College Aux- 
iliary. Membership has grown from the original 25 to approx- 
imately 500. Yearly dues remain at $2. Many members add 
personal contributions, making this the largest source of in- 
come. Total dues and contributions in 1985 amounted to 

Because she had a dream, "to promote the welfare of the 
College in its finer interests," and did something about it, Ella 
Augusta Gossard will always be an important part of the fabric 
of Lebanon Valley College. 

Author's Note: 

Edna Carmean has served the LVC community in many ways 
— including posts as secretary to the director of the Conser- 
vatory, secretary to the director of admissions and assistant in 
the public relations office. She is the author of several books 
including The Blue Eyed Six and Sandusky Brown, and con- 
tinues to remain actively involved with LVC events.

Dr. Arthur L. Peterson, President of the College since 
1984, will retire this summer. 

Dr. Arthur L. Peterson recently an- 
nounced his retirement as Presi- 
dent of LVC effective this July. 

His retirement due to "medical reasons" 
came as a surprise to most members of the 
College community. 

Though he did not anticipate retirement 
after just three years, Dr Peterson feels that 
he has accomplished his important goals 
for the College. 

During his tenure at the College, a new 
MBA program was begun in conjunction 
with The Philadelphia College of Textiles 
and Science, the campus computer system 
was upgraded, the college-community rela- 
tionship was strengthened, plans for the 
new Edward H. Arnold Sports Center are 
underway (see page 12) and "The Leader- 
ship Imperative" (see accompanying inter- 
view) was born. 

Referring to a passage in the Old Testa- 
ment which states "everything in its 
season," Dr. Peterson says that it is his 
season to step back. 

Future plans will take him back to Eckerd 
College, St. Petersburg, Florida, where he 
had been dean of special programs and 
continuing education prior to coming to 
LVC as President in 1984. 

In the summer issue of The Valley, Dr. 
Peterson will reflect on his time at LVC and 
what he sees for the College as he looks to 
the future. 

LVC's Leadership 

In the follov^ing statement. Dr. Arthur L. Peterson 
describes the importance of leadership knowledge and 
skills in our society today. It was this view of leadership, 
and his vision of the future of our country and our 
world, which Dr. Peterson brought with him when he 
came to Lebanon Valley College in 1984. 

Tie leadership imperative addresses the development of leaders and followers from 
a total community perspective. Leadership is one academic thrust not adequately 
addressed by colleges or high schools. We are not consciously preparing either the 
quantity or the quality of leaders that we should to meet the demands of tomorrow. 

We are turning out many good managers and people who do very well in their careers. 
However, we need leaders and followers who will address community problems, who 
will draw on their moral, religious and ethical backgrounds, and who will bring to bear 
all the best of the liberal arts to improve the quality of life in their professional setting and 
personal relationships. 

The study of leadership brings together knowledge of self, knowledge of others and the 
best techniques of management to create individuals who can effectively solve the critical 
problems of the future. Through this focus on "leadership," Lebanon Valley College con- 
tinues to enhance its liberal arts and sciences tradition. We learn about ourselves by 
reading authors like Dostoevsky and Plato; remember the ancient Greek maxim, 'Know 
Thyself.' In this tradition we also learn about others and develop interpersonal skills. 
Leadership also builds on the best techniques of management in such areas as decision 

I am pleased at how far Lebanon Valley College has come to bring leadership to the total 
community— at the high school, college, middle management and chief executive officer 
levels. No other college in the country has attempted leadership development on all four 
levels. Frank Pace, Jr., president of the National Executive Service Corps, has said we are 
the only college that has addressed the leadership development program from a total 
community perspective. We are taking the lead in responding to a critical issue of our 
time and, I believe, the College will find a receptive audience in parents, students and 
supporting publics. 

Leadership will help us integrate all our liberal arts more fully. As those interested in 
literature, psychology, philosophy, political science all see the relationship of their subject 
matter to this important study, more synthesis of the liberal arts will take place. 

Our students will also benefit very personally. Our young men and women will be 
enriched by a greater sense of self-knowledge and a greater understanding of the 
dynamics of those about them. They will lead a more satisfying personal life because they 
will have enhanced the quality of their lives. These personal benefits will help prepare 
students for their professional lives. They will have a significant advantage in ac- 
complishing the tasks of their careers. This Leadership Imperative offers an avenue for 
growth and development to the individual, to the college and to the nation.

The Leadership 
Studies Program 

"With leadership studies, the 
College can set itself in a distinc- 
tive, if not unique, group of higher 
education institutions." 

Creating the Leadership Studies Program began in the 
fall of 1985 when President Arthur L. Peterson ap- 
pointed a Leadership Development Committee to 
study leadership programs at other colleges and to design a 
model for LVC. The committee included John Norton, pro- 
fessor of political science and then acting dean of the faculty; 
Carolyn Hanes, associate professor of sociology; Rosemary 
Yuhas, associate dean of students; Kip BoUinger, assistant pro- 
fessor of education; and James Broussard, associate professor 
of history. 

After the Leadership Development Committee presented its 
recommendations to the curriculum committee and to the 
faculty for review, revisions and approval, the faculty 
approved the Leadership Studies Program in April 1986. 

In September 1986, Lebanon Valley College began in- 
tegrating the Leadership Studies Program into the curriculum. 

Here, several College officers and faculty members have ex- 
pressed some of the thinking that went into the design of the 

William J. McGill, dean of the faculty, said the Leadership 
Studies Program "provides a focus for the contemporary need 
of society to approach the perennial questions and issues of 
values which the liberal arts deal with: 'What is good leader- 
ship? What does society itself value?' This is another way to 
state the tension between public responsibility and the pursuit 
of individual ends." 

"What is good 
leadership? What 
does society itself 

— William J. McGill, vice 
president and dean of 
the faculty 

John Norton, former acting dean and current professor of 
political science noted "Leadership provides another common 
experience in the liberal arts tradition but focuses on an issue 
of national import — where will the nation get the leaders it 
needs in the next decades? 

"Leadership is consistent with the academic tradition of the 
college and, at the same time, responds to what is felt to be a 
need of the country. 

"The liberal arts tradition emphasizes the broad range of 
knowledge, skills and experience. Leadership requires that 

breadth of preparation in the light of a broad definition of 

— a willingness to take responsibility and to take conse- 

— some vision of the future which you want people to move 

— that vision is consistent with the ethics, values, morals of 
the nation and of the western experience 

— the individual acquires the skills, managerial and basic, 
to achieve the implementation of that vision. 

"We are not saying all graduates will be or want to be 
leaders, but the objective is to understand leadership, so peo- 
ple can better evaluate leadership and understand the nature 
of leadership, including the difficult choices a leader makes, 
and to appreciate the dilemmas without automatically re- 
sponding positively or negatively. We can make people in- 
formed followers while encouraging some to become leaders.

distinctive, if not unique, group of higher education institu- 

The Three Facets of the Leadership Studies Program 

Part One: General Education Requirement 

All students, including those in Continuing Education, take 
LC 111: Theories and Applications of the Leadership Pro- 
cesses. The course covers skills, strategies and theories of 
leadership, as well as personal values and self-awareness. 

Dr. Carolyn Hanes, associate professor of sociology and 
social service, and chairperson of the sociology department, 
taught the first LC 111 course in September 1986. She explain- 
ed that the course has four basic goals: 

— to make the students familiar with and aware of 

the basic concepts of leadership, including responsible 

— to study the different types of leaders in case studies; to 
examine the relationship between the effective and the 
ethical leader 

— to understand the instruments of self-assessment 

— to enhance leadership skills with simulations, exercise 
and leaderless groups. 

Hanes said that this year's students read Machiavelli, Lao 
Tzu, John W. Gardner, Stephen B. Gates, Thomas Gordon 
and David Campbell. But the students also did a project to 
"find out what it's like to practice the theories." 

The Valley 8 

The students identified a campus, community or society- 
wide problem and did research on that problem. They then 
developed an organizational structure to tackle the problem, 
worked out a plan of action for reaching specific goals and, 
finally, acted to reduce or solve the problem. 

"The students experienced the group dynamics discussed in 
class," said Hanes. "They learned firsthand about themselves 
and about teamwork, cooperation and leadership." 

Excited about teaching leadership, Hanes explained, "This 
is an important area to understand, even if you don't become 
a leader I see the students becoming more aware of and more 
concerned with school, community and social issues." 

"I see the students 
becoming more 
aware of and more 
concerned with 
school, community 
and social issues."

Part Two: Program For Presidential Leadership Award 

Each year, 30 high school students receive Presidential 
Leadership Awards of $5,000 based on these criteria: 

— leadership achievement in such school activities as stu- 
dent government, athletics, debate, art, drama and 

— leadership achievement in community and/or civic 

— commitment to accepting a campus leadership role by liv- 
ing in a dormitory 

— rank in the top 40% of graduating class or combined SAT 
scores of 1,000 or higher 

— demonstrated academic leadership 

— an on-campus interview 

— the names and addresses of three references. 
Financial need is not one of the criteria. 

"Students in the 
program seem to 
have wider interests 
both in and out of 

— Warren Thompson, 
director of the Leader- 
ship Studies Program 

Selecting The Recipients 

Interviews are conducted in six areas: Special Talents such 
as athletics, art, drama, and music; Natural Sciences; 
Mathematical Sciences; Management; Humanities; and Social 
Sciences. Each area determines its own procedures and ques- 
tions for the interview; most areas use two faculty and one 
student. Each area ranks the candidates according to academic 
standards, leadership standards and the needs of the division. 

The six areas forward their recommendations to a screening 
committee comprised of the dean of the faculty, the dean of 
student affairs and the director of the Leadership Studies Pro- 
gram. This committee makes the final recommendation to the 
President, who selects the winners and the alternates. 

The Special Talent area receives eight awards; the other five 
areas receive a minimum of two awards. This leaves 12 awards 
in the At-Large group. 

The Presidential Leadership Awardees agree to: 

— live on campus 

— be involved in two, campus-wide, extracurricular activi- 

— demonstrate good campus leadership 

— maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average in the first year 
and at least a 2.75 in the next three years 

— complete successfully the course requirements of the 
Leadership Studies Program for Presidential Leadership 
Award Recipients. 

Completing The Program 

Each leadership award recipient takes the following three- 
credit courses: 

— LC 111: Theories and Applications of the Leadership 

— Religion 222: Christian Ethics or Philosophy 220: Ethics 

— LC 350: Advanced leadership Studies 

— LC 400: Leadership Internship 

Part Three: Voluntary Program 

The Voluntary Program is open to any student who com- 
pletes 15 credits (five courses) from communications (English 
210 or English 218), organizational theory (Management 330 or 
Psychology 337 or Sociology 340), ethics and values (LC 330), 
advanced leadership studies (LC 350) and an internship (LC 

Administering The Leadership Studies Program 

The Leadership Studies Steering Committee which over- 
sees the program consists of Warren Thompson, director of 
the Leadership Studies Program; George Marquette, vice 
president of student affairs and dean of students; William 
McGill, vice president and dean of the faculty; all instructors 
in the program; and selected students in the program. 

Thompson noted, "Students in the program seem to have 
wider interests both in and out of class. It struck me this year 
and last that the students are thoughtful and are much more 
on the activist side; they are interested in doing things and 
working with people." 

"The student response is positive," continued Thompson. 
"The students offer constructive criticism and seem to enjoy 
what they are doing."

A Clean 

Environment and 
a Prosperous 
Economy: Can 
We Have Both? 

Gaylord Nelson, counselor of The 
Wilderness Society and guest speaker at 
the Founders Day service in February 
commented on the importance of 
preserving our natural resources. The 
following is a portion of his address. 

If you were asked the question, "What, in the long run, is 
the most important issue facing mankind on the planet?", 
how would you answer? 

IS IT The economy? Jobs? Free speech? Freedom of religion? 
Freedom in general? 

IS IT World peace? World hunger? Discrimination? Civil 

IS IT The threat of nuclear war? The viability of democratic 

Just what is the most important issue of all? 

Well, we could probably argue all day and all night without 
agreeing on the list or the priorities .... 

BUT ... if you think carefully about it, there is one issue 
that stands alone, above all others. Right now, and in the long 
haul into the next century and the centuries thereafter, no 

other issue is more relevant to the physical quality of life for 
the human species than the status of our resources and the 
quality of our environment — air — water — soil — minerals — 
scenic beauty — wildlife habitat — forests — rivers — lakes — 

These resources determine quite precisely the physical con- 
dition of our lives on the planet and influence quite 
dramatically the human condition, spiritually, intellectually, 
and philosophically. There is quite simply no other issue with 
a more compelling entitlement to our attention and our time. 

And yet, strangely, this issue, which is of primary conse- 
quence for this and all future generations, plays a secondary 
role to a multitude of other issues such as the economy, jobs, 
the nuclear arms race, star wars, the never-ending Middle East 
crisis, Soviet expansionism, foreign imports and many more. 
These are the issues that occupy the front page, the Congress, 
the President, the public. These kinds of issues, of course, wUl 
always make a strong claim on our attention. The puzzling 
question is why an issue far more important than any of these 
commands far less attention? 

While in the past two decades we have come some ap- 
preciable distance in our understanding of and sensitivity to 
resource-environmental issues, we stUl have advanced only a 
few steps toward the goal we must achieve if indeed we are to 
forestall a disastrous degradation of the planet's resource base. 

The central core of the problem is, I think, that the various 
political, religious, economic and social power structures 
which set our goals and guide our direction have their own in- 
stitutional agendas which take priority over everything else: 

• The political system is headed by politicians who have a 
short franchise. The next election is the first order of 
business, not the next generation or the one after. 

• Business and industry are primarily concerned about 
profits this year and next year. 

• Labor unions must worry about jobs today and tomorrow. 

• Farmers and their organizations worry about the current 
price of corn, soy beans, wheat, milk and the mortgage 

• Religious institutions worry about today and the hereafter. 

• Educational institutions are heavily pre-occupied with 
training their students for jobs in today's marketplace 
albeit they do have a broader intellectual mission which 
affords some hope that they wUI give us a new generation 
with a better grasp of this issue and a stronger commit- 
ment than past generations. 

As we look to the decades ahead we must very soon 
recognize that our present-day focus on the resource issue is 
far too narrow and superficial. It touches only the visible tip of 
the iceberg. It is going to be necessary to make many jarring 
course corrections that will lead us in a different direction 
from which we have been going since the founding of the 
Republic. For two hundred years it has been the prevailing 
philosophy of this society that our resources were boundless, 
that we could dissipate and exploit them with lavish ex- 
travagance without end. We have uncritically determined all 
other pollutants that society produces could be safely vented 
into the air, dumped in the oceans, lakes, marshes, rivers and 
on the land because nature would somehow contain or 
neutralize them. This, of course, is not so. Nature's capacity is 
limited and that capacity has been exceeded in many places 
and in many ways quite some time ago. 

If all costs and benefits are included, the case is clear beyond 
question that preserving a clean environment is a profitable 
investment. This argument is all part of a major proposition 
being advanced by some environmental critics who insist that 
at some point soon we must make a choice between a pros- 
perous economy and a dirty environment, or clean environ- 

The Valley 10 

ment and a poor economy. A year or two ago I participated in 
a conference organized around the theme, "The Economy and 
the Environment: Need We Choose?" 

Those who would dramatically weaken environmental pro- 
tection claim we must, indeed, make a choice between the 
two. They assume the two are separable and must be address- 
ed as discrete entities standing alone. They are wrong by every 
rational standard of measurement. I assume we are using the 
word "environment" in its broadest context to include all 
physical resources— air, water, soil, scenic beauty, minerals, 
and forests. They are all part of the environment and in- 
separable from it. The appropriate generalization to be made, 
I think, is that the economy and the environment are inex- 
tricably intertwined; a degraded environment and a poor 
economy travel hand-in-hand. It is vital to understand that 
while you can have a country rich in its resources with a poor 
economy, you cannot have a rich economy in a country poor 
in its resources or its access to them. That, I assume, is ax- 
iomatic. Jeremy Rifkin recently stated the proposition simply 
and clearly as follows: "The ultimate balancing of budgets is 
not within society, but between society and nature." 

Each incremental degradation of nature's resources — the 
air, the water, the soil, forests, scenic beauty, habitats — is 
quite simply a dissipation of capital assets which ultimately 
will be paid for by a lower standard of living and a lower quali- 
ty environment. 

"Each incremental degredation of 
nature's resources — the air, the 
water, the soil, forests, scenic beau- 
ty, habitats — is quite simply a 
dissipation of captial assets which 
ultimately will be paid for by a 
lower standard of living and a 
lower quality environment/ ' 

The Office of Technology Assessment estimates that it will 
cost $100 billion just to clean up the 2,000 inactive hazardous 
waste sites located in every state of the nation. 

Any benefit-cost assessment that leaves this factor out of the 
equation so distorts the result as to make such an assessment 

There continues to be a national controversy over the Clean 
Air Act and appropriations for waste management treatment 
facilities. The Administration would like to weaken these 
statutes and cut appropriations. 

Just what do we mean by clean air and clean water? What 
general principles should guide us in setting air and water 
quality standards? It would seem obvious that standards must 
be set at a level that will assure that air or water pollution will 
not impair health or result in any significant adverse ecological 
damage. We are a long way from achieving that standard. 

"WUl it cost too much to achieve that standard?" That is the 
way the question is usually formed. The proper way to test 
the question is to ask, "How much will it cost society not to 
meet that standard?" The answer is that we can pay the cost of 
meeting the standard, but there is no way for future genera- 
tions to pay for our failure. 

All across thenation, fresh water lakes are being sterilized, 
made lifeless, by acid rain caused by sulphur oxides from 

burning fossil fuel and nitrogen oxides from auto emissions. 
Some three hundred lakes have been rendered sterile in New 
York, and thousands of others are being degraded in Canada, 
the Rocky Mountains, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and 

Can anyone tell us what the monumental economic and 
recreation loss to the nation will be unless we move now to 
save our lakes from acid rain? 

''The ultimate test of man's con- 
science is his willingness to 
sacrifice something today for a 
future generation whose words of 
thanks will never be heard.' ' 

What is the economic value of the protein sources in the 
oceans and the water in our rivers? If we continue to destroy 
the salt water marshes and pollute the estuaries and the 
shallow waters of the continental shelf which provide the 
breeding habitat of most marine creatures, we ultimately will 
destroy the productivity of the oceans. Has that been factored 
into the economic equation in the debate over clean water 
standards? The answer is, no, it has not. 

Is it not cheaper to clean up the Mississippi River and keep 
it clean than to leave it dirty so that every city, every 
municipality and every industry from Minneapolis to the Gulf 
of Mexico takes out dirty water, launders it and returns it 
polluted again? 

These and one hundred other questions can be asked and 
every time the answer will be that it is far better for the 
economy and cheaper to maintain a clean environment than a 
dirty one. 

In the short run, some very modest temporary benefit to the 
economy might result from relaxed air and water quality 
standards, but it would be dangerous and enormously expen- 
sive. If we do that, it simply means we are borrowing capital 
from future generations and counting it on the profit side of 
the ledger. 

Quite apart from the ethical questions involved, there is 
simply no way that a future generation could replace the 
capital we borrow from them because we cannot restore a 
polluted ocean or a polluted lake. 

The ultimate test of man's conscience is his willingness to 
sacrifice something today for a future generation whose words 
of thanks will never be heard.

Campus Update 

Construction for New 
Athletic Facility Underway 

Ground breakint; ceremonies were held on April 21 tor the Edward H Arnold Sports Center The new tacility will in- 
clude an olvmpic-sized swimming pool and indoor track. Approximately 200 students, tacult}' members, college 
trustees and invited guests attended the festivities on Arnold Field, 

College trustees, benefactors, friends and 
students broke ground for the "Edward H. 
Arnold Sports Center," a $3 million 
life/sports learning center, during a 
ceremony on the southeast corner of Ar- 
nold Field, Tuesday, April 21, 1987. The 
building will be named in honor of College 
Trustee, Edward H. Arnold in recognition 
of his deep involvement in the life and 
work of the College. The ambitious project 
is a second major addition to the campus 
during the 1980's. The $5 million Garber 
Science Center was completed in 1983. 

"This was the missing piece in our 
physical plant," said Dr Arthur L. Peterson, 
President of the College. "This will 
strengthen our ability to give the best possi- 
ble education to our young people." 

The Edward H. Arnold Sports Center, 
which is set to be completed in eight 
months, will house an Olympic-size swim- 
ming pool and three racquetball courts that 
can be converted for squash games. The 
Butler Manufacturing Company, Lebanon, 
is handling the construction of the Center 

"The Center will primarily be used for 
recreational, intramural purposes for our 
student body," said Dr George Marquette, 
dean of students. "Our intent at this time is 
to have volleyball the only intercollegiate 
sport in this facility." 

The main section will contain inter- 
changeable basketball, volleyball and ten- 
nis courts surrounded by a 200-meter track. 
It also will house offices, a second-floor 
observation deck and a concession stand. 
Most of the College's intercollegiate teams 
will continue to use the Lynch Gym- 

nasium. The new facility will be used for 
recreation and intramural sports. 

"The facility will boost morale of current 
students and be a drawing card for recruit- 
ment of others," said Lou Sorrentino, 
athletic director "Many schools of com- 
parative size have a similar facility for 

During the ground-breaking ceremonies, 
Dr Peterson spoke of "Ed Arnold's commit- 
ment to Lebanon Valley College and the im- 
portant educational mission which it 
fulfills. It is indeed an honor for the college 
community to recognize Ed in this small 
way." Arnold field is named for Edward H. 
Arnold's father, Henry, and his mother, 

Relatedly, the main foyer of the new 
building will be known as the "Samuel K. 
Wengert Foyer" in honor of Mr Samuel K. 
Wengert who, prior to his death in 1980, 
was a long-term officer and member of the 
College Board of Trustees. Peterson noted 
that the highly esteemed Samuel K. 
Wengert was ably succeeded on the board 
by his son, Harlan R. Wengert, who serves 
as Campaign Chairman of the Finance and 
Investment Committee of the Board and 
also serves as Campaign Co-Chair with Ed- 
ward H. Arnold. Harlan Wengert, along 
with his brothers, John and Clifford, have 
been instrumental in the early develop- 
ment of the building. 

The project is part of a soon-to-be- 
announced major Capital Campaign to 
celebrate LVC's 125th Anniversary. The 
Campaign will provide funds to increase 
the endowment of the College and to 
underwrite the cost of the center

Gaylord Nelson (D-WI), counselor of The 
Wilderness Society. The topic of Nelson's 
address was "A Clean Environment and A 
Prosperous Economy: Can We Have Both?" 
(See page 10.) 

Nelson became counselor of The 
Wilderness Society in January 1981. He was 
first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1962 after 
serving as a state Senator for ten years and 
as Governor for four years. In his eighteen 
years in the Senate, Nelson earned a 
reputation as a staunch environmentalist, 
holding a record of notable achievements 
which include: the founder of Earth Day; 
Operation Mainstream and Green Thumb 
(to employ the elderly in conservation pro- 
jects); The Apostles Islands National 
Lakeshore Act; the Upper Great Lakes 
Region Commission; the St. Croix Wild 
and Scenic River; a Sponsor of the 1964 
Wilderness Act; and co-author of the Na- 
tional Hiking Trails System. 

Nelson first introduced legislation in 
Congress: to control strip mining; to ban 
the use of DDT; to protect and complete the 
acquisition of the Appalachian Trail; to ban 
the use of 245 T (agent orange); and to ban 
the use of phosphates in detergents.

Alumni Scholarship News 

Begun in 1953, the Alumni Scholarship 
Fund balance currently stands at $25,000. 
Interest earned'from the fund means that 

two students receive a $1,000 scholarship to 
defray tuition costs each year 

But the alumni association would like to 
change that so more money is available to 
help today's LVC students. Current cost of 
tuition is $7950. 

"Our goal this year is to raise the balance 
to increase the amount available for 
scholarships," said Jane Gruber Seiverling 
'43, chairperson of the alumni scholarship 

According to Wes Dellinger '75, president 
of the alumni association, one alumnus has 
already given $2,600 to help increase the 
fund balance. 

"Anyone who would like to contribute 
will play an important role in helping us 
reach our goal," notes Seiverling. "Some of 
us could never have graduated without 
others' foresight to establish scholarship 

The alumni scholarship, like all scholar- 
ships at LVC, is a need-based award. Reci- 
pients are selected on the basis of scholar- 
ship, need, and life and career goals. 

This year. Amy Jo Kresen '88, a biology 
major from Beaver Springs, PA, and Robert 
J. Schalkoff '88, a music education major 
from East Hanover NJ, each received $1,000 
scholarship from the Alumni Association. 
Approximately 75 students have received 
Alumni Scholarships since 1953. 

Anyone who wishes to contribute a 
$25.00 donation to the fund may write a 
check payable to "Alumni Scholarship

LVC Receives "Fortune" 

The math department received a Fortune 
32:16 desk top computer system in January. 

The new computer, on loan from AT&T 
Bell Laboratories in Whippany, NJ, will pro- 
vide students with experience on a 
multitasking, multiuser system running 
UNIX. Hardware, including a 20 megabyte 
hard disk, printer, and three terminals, wUl 
provide students this semester with ex- 
perience in system management. Addi- 

tionally, software included Fortran 77, C, 
and BASIC compilers. 

"This has been our first general exposure 
to UNIX," said Dr. Michael Fry, assistant 
professor of mathematical sciences. "The 
system is in line with state-of-the-art 
philosophy meant in the progress of com- 
puters for researching computer science. 
For our students it is a chance to get some 
experience with a system that continues to 
grow in the job field." 

George Baldwin, director of the Design 
Engineering Center at Bell Labs, Whip- 
pany, NJ, was instrumental in obtaining the 
loan of the computer. 

Gary Kunkel, a senior computer science 
major, has been named system operator, in 
light of his present independent study 
work with UNIX. 

"For Gary, the system has been beneficial 
because it gave him the opportunity to 
manage the computer," said Fry. 

Drug Awareness Program From 
Satellite To LVC 

LVC students viewed, live-via-satellite, a 
program produced by the College Satellite 
Network (CSN) entitled "Drugs: Your 
Choice, Your Future," in February. 

The broadcast, which was received by 
400 campuses nation-wide, included 
"Drugs: Why Not?", a discussion on reality 
of drug use with well-known personalities 
from the entertainment industry, "Drugs 
and Athletics" with sports figures discuss- 
ing the effects of drugs on athletic perform- 

ance, and "The Politics of Drug Abuse," 
which featured leading politicians discuss- 
ing all aspects of the drug issue including 
new laws, interdiction by the military and 
foreign aid to drug exporters. 

"The program is part of campus-wide 
campaign adopted by the institution's 
Board of Trustees to increase awareness of 
cirug and alcohol use and abuse among the 
students and the community," said Eileen 
Frankland, director of student activities at 
LVC. "The CSN program was open to the 
students and the community," continued 
Frankland. "The College wants to increase 
awareness on this subject both with its 
students and the surrounding community 
the College serves." 

Did You Know? 

Deb Dressier '86 was interviewed by Wall 
Street Journal staff reporter Francis C. 
Brown, III for a story on the current short- 
age of teachers which appeared in the 
January 15 issue of the WSJ. 

Entitled "Recruiting Drive: Shortage of 
Teachers Prompts Talent Hunt by Educa- 
tion Officials," the article discussed current 
tactics used to attract college graduates into 
the teaching field. Recruiting drives, 
"forgivable" loans, and "retraining" pro- 
grams are three ways in which states are 
trying to attract potential teachers to fill the 
growing need for qualified instructors. 

In Dressler's case, Pennsylvania "forgave" 
$10,000 in loans with her agreement to get a 
teaching certificate and become a science 
instructor for three years. 

Dressier remarked that this program was 
a "strong incentive" to enter teaching. 

Currently, she teaches 8th grade en- 
vironmental science for Pennsbury School 
District, Yardley, PA.

the success of the workshop, a second 
similar workshop for full-time faculty took 
place in late March. 

"One of my primary interests is to help 
faculty develop a sense of their mutual in- 
volvement in teaching and to exchange 
ideas in the context of a workshop," said Dr 
William McGill, dean of the faculty. "We 
plan to repeat the workshop on a yearly 
basis and eventually add several work- 
shops that focus on a particular problem in 
the field."
