From the President
I am preparing today tor a challaiging and
fascinating conference— a week-long seminar
to which fifteen college presidents have been
invited by the Christian A. Johnson Endeavor
Foundation to discuss some of the major
problems of contemporary educational leader-
ship. It will be challenging because each of my
colleagues in this venture is an outstanding
educator. It will be fascinatnig because our
discussion will be set against the backdrop of
a large number of readings of great
philosophical and religious works.
Part of my homework on this Fourth of July
weekend consisted in the rereading of Plato's
Republic. As a political philosopher by train-
ing, that quintessential work has been, of
course, a staple in my intellectual diet over
the past forty years as professor, public ser-
vant and president. Even so, it was exciting to
once again think through the main question
asked in the Republic— 'What does Justice
mean and how can it be realized in human
society?" Weaving back and forth through
the Socratic dialogue I ultimately arrived at
that question Socrates called the most impor-
tant of all questions: "How ought we to
live?" A philosophical query, a religious in-
vitation, and indeed, a very practical matter
of day to da\' decisions, this question is, all in
all, a suitable theme for this, my last quarterly
message as President of Lebanon Valley
"How ought we to live?" in this case refers
to what we have done, together, during the
past three and a half years: What kind of
stewardship have we shown?; What dreams
have hardened into fact?; What visions still
Let me say at the outset I am very proud of
what we have done jointly, as a College com-
munity, and of what each segment has ac-
complished individually. What we have
done, we have done as a team. We have built
upon the solid foundations of the past and
now look to the future with great expecta-
tions, with irrepressible confidence and with
the excitement of a great institution rapidly
enhancing its ability to serve all of its consti-
tuencies and determined to do so. Let us ex-
amine the factual basis for my optimism.
1. Our student body. We will open, in all
likelihood, with a higher enrollment this
September than in Fall, 1986, despite the
diminished pool of high school graduates.
The quality of our student body is reflected in
our Leadership Scholarship winners who set
the pace for the entire student body with
average SAT scores of 1143. We will have the
largest number of male matriculants in
September, 1987, that we have had for nearly
a decade, and we are encouraged as well by
the steadily increasing enrollments in our
Evening, Weekend and Special Programs.
2. Financial Condition. We recently paid
off all indebtedness on the College dor-
mitories and that act, in conjunction with the
early retirement of the Garber Science Center
bonds last year, means that all buildings cur-
rently in use on campus, but one, are debt
free (Blair Music Hall, whose principal carries
extremely low interest payments is still en-
cumbered.) Pledges and payments for the
new Arnold Sports Center are most en-
couraging! A continuation of the current giv-
ing pattern for this exciting and much needed
new facility will mean it, too, could be debt
free within a relatively short period of years.
During these years when we have moved
toward a debt free campus, our endowment
has doubled. Three and a half years ago, en-
dowment stood at approximately $4.6
million. Today, it is at about $9 million.
Most of this dramatic improvement is the
direct result of the hard work of my
predecessors, particularly. Dr. Fred Sample.
Sound investment policies of our Board Com-
mittee on Finance and Investments, aided by
the rise in the stock market, were also in-
strumental in bringing about this most
During each of the past three years, we
have worked very hard to operate within a
balanced budget. This year we are again
pleased to note a substantial operating
We are pleased too, that during these years
our campus has expanded from 50 acres to
over 300 acres including a beautiful 100-plus
acres adjacent to the campus and a lovely en-
vironmental studies park of over 140 acres in
the historic Gettysburg area.
3. Academic programs. As exciting as the
news is with respect to our student body and
the bright financial picture that has emerged
over the past few years, perhaps the most
significant developments have occurred in the
heart of our educational enterprise, the
academic program itself.
Three and a half years ago, when I was
selected to become the fourteenth president of
Lebanon Valley College, 1 announced that it
was my most earnest hope that this great and
good institution would rededicate itself to the
development of Leaders whose Judeo-
Christian Values would produce a new com-
mitment to Community. As a team, we then
committed ourselves to that task. Today,
though much remains to be done in reifying
this goal totally, I believe we have moved well
down the path toward its accomplishment.
Our Leadership Studies program, with a
strong Values orientation, is in place and every
student will henceforth better understand the
obligations and opportunities of leadership in
a free society, and more fully share in the im-
provement of the community in which he or
she dwells— whether that community is the
immediate extended family or the larger com-
munity of all humankind.
So, as we look back at what we set out to
do and what we have accomplished, I hope
that all of us— alumni. Board members,
faculty, staff and administration have been
good stewards of our charge "to maintain
forever an institution of high grade." I am
certain that each of us who has played a
leadership role during these past four years
hopes this chapter in the life of the College
will be seen, to use the military analogy, as a
"staging period" when the College prepared
for a massive assault to conquer the heights of
true educational greatness. 1, for one, believe
it. If each of us continues to give our love and
support to the imperative work ahead, it unll
Connie and I will find it very hard to leave
this warm and wonderful family. These years
have been challenging and rewarding for
both of us. Although we have been part of
many outstanding college and university
communities over the years, we have never
felt as much love for an institution and its
people as we have felt for the Lebanon Valley
family, nor have we ever felt as loved as we
do here in your midst. Your supportive
understanding has been particularly mean-
ingful as we have had to make the decision to
move into circumstances that are less de-
manding and stressful.
1 will not attempt to express the deep
gratitude 1 feel for your individual contribu-
tions to the progress we have made here dur-
ing this one generation of college students.
Suffice it to say that each of you, by letter, by
telephone, by earnest effort of your app>ointed
task, by gift, by an encouraging word, by
constructive criticism, by your loyalty to LVC,
have answered the question that Socrates
asked: How ought we to live? You have
answered it with your lives of service and
love for one another, your loyalty to the high
ideals of a private, church-related school, by
your continuing quest for e.xcellence, by your
manifest, values-centered leadership in your
professional and personal lives and in your
caring concern for community. You are LVC,
writ large, and the Petersons are proud and
deeply grateful to have been an intimate part
of this great institution. Thank you for that

Long on Hope
by Melissa J. Huffman
(L to R) Emmanuel "Mannv" ftul, Becky Long and Dr. Harlan Daubert discuss the
slide Becky has been studying.
What would you do if you needed a bone replacement?
Currently, you would have to settle for an artificial im-
plant. But, if research teams around the world have
anything to say about it, you will someday be able to get what
you need from a local bone bank, similar to the familiar blood
Like all medical somedays, that day will come when research
unravels the web of mystery surrounding the problem of preserv-
ing articular cartUage. One person who has worked on solving
this mystery is Becky Long, a senior biology major at LVC. Last
semester Long participated in research at The Hershey Medical
Center. And, according to Emmanuel "Manny" Paul, team lab
technician, she asked a million questions.
And that is where it all starts. With questions. The specific
question Long's team tried to answer was "What is the best way
to preserve articular cartilage, which is found in most moveable
joints?" The answer, when found, could lead to the establishment
of bone banks.
Professional journal articles keep world-wide research teams
informed on what has been tried to date, both successes and
failures. Long completed her own literature review of the topic
before joining Hershey's research team and learned that the bone
itself can be preserved, but because the cartilage does not func-
tion the bone cannot be implanted in a human being.
Her team studied two ways of preserving the cartilage. The
first involved taking the chondrocytes, which are free cells in the
cartilage, out of the matrix and freezing them. "It is essential,"
says Long, "that these be preserved because they are the only liv-
ing part of the cartilage." The second way involved freezing the
whole articular cartilage intact, matrix and all. The matrix in-
cludes everything surrounding the cells, which is extracellular
To guard against ice formation within and around the cells
during freezing, the team used the two types of cryopreser-
vatives proven most successful to date: glycerol and
The team formed two opinions as to why the chondrocytes
aren't surviving when the entire cartilage is preserved, matrix in-
tact. One is that the cryopreservatives aren't getting deep enough
into the cartilage to preserve the cells. The second is that the
cryopreservatives are toxic and are killing the cells.
The researchers tried a staining procedure to see how far into
the cartilage the cryopireservative was going. "They were very ex-
cited about the method and thought they had the answer," says
Long. But they couldn't consistently produce the same results
and so they had to abandon the method.
The Valley 4
Long tried to learn why various methods didn't work. She
looked at cells before and after freezing and tried to determine if
the cells were damaged and, if so, what parts.
Through Dr. Allen Wolfe, professor of biology at Lebanon
Valley College and Long's advisor, she learned to use an electron
microscope, which has a built-in camera, to take pictures of the
cells before and after freezing. Becky says she literally jumped up
and down when she got her first pictures, exclaiming, "I found
some cells! I found some cells!"
"Very few times is there a gigantic breakthrough," says Dr.
Harlan Daubert, a research fellow at Hershey. "The way you get
that is to have little breakthroughs."
Research is very repetitious, methodical work that rarely pro-
duces immediate results. According to Dr. Daubert, a typical
week included coming up with a question pertaining to the
study; designing and completing an experiment to answer the
question; getting cartilage for experimentation (team favorites
were baby chick femurs and cow's knees shavings); putting the
data into a computer and analyzing it to see if the question could
This frequently was tedious, but Long seemed to thrive on it.
"Her greatest asset is her enthusiasm," says Dr. Daubert. Wolfe
agrees that, although Long asks a lot of questions, she always is
willing to seek answers for herself.
These characteristics and her personal experience led her into
While in high school, she underwent knee surgery for ab-
normal softening and degeneration of cartilage, which is related
to osteoarthritis. Typically, Long asked a lot of questions and her
doctor provided information. Having been interested in architec-
ture and medical design throughout high school. Long began
thinking about the structure and design of the knee.
In time. Long formed a hypothesis for a study of her own.
Cartilage degeneration, according to her hypothesis, is directly
related to mechanical misallignment and variations in matrix
composition. But she didn't stop with the hypothesis. She sought
the advice of Dr. Henry Mankin, professor of orthopedics at
Harvard Medical School and chief of orthopedic surgery at
Massachusetts General Hospital, one of the leading hospitals in
the country for orthopedic surgery. Dr. Mankin, a world-
reknown expert on cartilage metabolism, was so interested in her
hypothesis that he invited her to spend a week in his lab.
There, Mankin and Long discussed her hypothesis and he ex-
pressed his belief that it was a good one. However, he pointed
out, there was no way to prove it because any degeneration
would be due to causes other than Long's manipulation. Since it
is essential in any study to eliminate all variables except the one
with which you are working. Long would need a way to preserve
Mankin encouraged Long to keep her hypothesis and try to
design a study to prove it. She plans to do just that. Currently,
those suffering from osteoarthritis are treated with drug therapy,
restricted mobility and probable surgery. If Long's study is suc-
cessful, proper treatment would allow the patient to return to
normal without major life adjustments.
That is more than enough incentive for Long to plan a career in
clinical research and orthopedic surgery. "I don't want to lose
touch with the patient side of medicine," she says. She hopes to
obtain a Ph.D. and M.D. simultaneously, which will involve six
to seven years of education, in addition to residency.
This enthusiasm, intensity and dedication are precisely what is
needed for the tall order of curing osteoarthritis. But those are
precisely the qualities Long possesses and that is precisely what
she plans to do.

Annville had much in common with such major U.S. cities
as Miami, New York, Baltimore and Boston when the in-
ternational exhibit, "Anne Frank in the World:
1929-1945" arrived on campus for a thirteen-day stay in May.
And while most cities had to pay $13,000 to get the exhibit, it
came to the Lebanon community for only the cost of transfxjrta-
tion to Lebanon.
"Cornelis Suijk, the international director of the Anne Frank
Foundation in Amsterdam felt pretty strongly about making the
exhibit available to the community," said Grayson Covil, a
spokeswoman for the New York Anne Frank Center.
Suijk made the offer in recognition of a bequest of approx-
imately $186,000 to the Anne Frank Foundation from the will of
Fredericksburg (Lebanon County) artist Hedy Deeds, whose
cousin married Otto Frank, Anne Frank's father.
Area residents Eleanor and Ken Watts, neighbors and friends of
Deeds, were executors of Hedy's will, and two of the many area
residents responsible for bringing the exhibit to the Annville
Says Eleanor, "One of the objectives of the Anne Frank Foun-
dation is to educate the next generation so something like this
won't happen again."
William J. McGill, LVC dean of faculty and member of
Lebanon's St. Luke's Episcopal Church where the Watts also at-
tend, believes that "having this exhibit affirms the College's com-
mitment to serving the broader community in a way consistent
with our educational and moral purposes."
McGill also served on the committee of local citizens who coor-
dinated the details of getting the exhibit to the area. Several com-
mittee members including Lebanon's Rabbi Louis Zivic felt that
the College was the best place in the county to display the exhibit
because of its size.
More than 5600 people, including 30 school groups, viewed the Anne Frank Ex-
hibit at Lebanon Vallev College in Mav.
Sixty panels (10 feet high) of 800 illuminated, silk-screened
photographs of Anne Frank and her family plus other historical
photographs tell the story of the Holocaust. Also included in the
exhibit are manuscripts, a model of the secret annex where the
Frank family hid, and a video for school children.
The photographs capture the moments of everyday life and
also depict such larger events as the gradual separation of Jews
and non-Jews, which led to the final deportation. Attention is
drawn to both the Nazi collaboration and resistance.
The exhibition also treats the aftermath of World War II, and
considers not only the immediate political aftershocks such as the
division of Europe, but today's re-emergence of Nazism and the
denial of the Holocaust.
Because Otto Frank was an amateur photographer, the exhibit
includes many pre-war photographs of the Frank family, in-
cluding photos that reveal an Anne not often seen before-
laughing with friends or with her older sister Margot, who also
died at Bergen-Belsen.
This is the Anne who was adored by her cousin Buddy Elias.
He told McCall's magazine last year that "Anne carried her heart
in her hands— she was never very good at covering up her feel-
Many of the Frank family photographs came from a scrapbook
left anonymously at the Anne Frank Center in Amsterdam in
1980, according to Covil. "The donator probably found the scrap-
book in a piece of old furniture," she added.
The purpose of revealing an intimate look at the Frank family
is not sentimental, said Dewar MacLeod, researcher and educator
at the Anne Frank Center.
By showing that Anne Frank was "an ordinary girl," creators
of the exhibit hopied viewers would realize that "an updated ver-
sion of Nazi ideology is not inconceivable."
The exhibit, which is concurrently touring in Europe and
Japan, has been touring the U.S. since it opened in New York
City in June 1985.
More than 5600 people, including 30 school groups, saw the
exhibit while it remained on campus.

Board of Trustees Approve Capital
Campaign: Authorize $6.5 Million Goal
At its regularly scheduled meeting on May 8, the Board of
Trustees authorized the establishment of a $6.5 million
goal for the yet to be "officially announced" 125th An-
niversanj Campaign. This exciting news comes following a quiet
solicitation of Board members for their support of a capital cam-
paign which will move into a more active phase this Fall.
It was the positive, early response of Trustees and a few special
friends which enabled the College to proceed with the ground-
breaking for the Edward H. Arnold Sports Center in AprU of this
year. One of the major objectives of the campaign is to raise the
funds to support the costs of the center while at the same time
adding significantly to the endowment of the College.
President Peterson, in speaking of the pace set by the Trustees,
remarked: "It has been inspiring and encouraging in this period
- before we even publicly announce our fund raising plans - to
see how so many have responded so generously to the important
needs of the College. In The 125th Anniversan/ Campaign we will
be seeking to assure the continued vitality of Lebanon Valley Col-
lege into the 21st Century. We're certainly off to an auspicious
Plans for the campaign have been underway for well over a
year. Trustee Charles W. Wolfe '44 has accepted the National
Chairmanship of the effort and Trustees Edward H. Arnold and
Harlan R. Wengert have chaired the Trustee and Major Gifts
Committee which has set such an impressive pace. Allan W.
Mund will serve as Honorary Chairman of the campaign. This
Fall, committees chaired by Martin L. Gluntz '53 (Leadership
Gifts), Dr. Carroll E. Ditzler '58 (Special Gifts), Dr. Arthur L.
Ford (Campus Gifts), Dr. Gerald D. Kauffman '44 (General Gifts)
and John R. Eby '57 (Corporate and Foundation Gifts) wUl begin
their important work.
The projects and programs to be addressed with funds raised
through The 125th Anniversary Campaign fall into three categories:
I. The need to increase athletic facilities;
II. The need to increase the endowment;
III. The need to fund special projects;
A description of each of these needs follows.
I. The Need to Increase Athletic Facilities
Lebanon Valley College is fortunate to have a campus with ex-
cellent physical facilities that meet most requirements for
classrooms, faculty offices, dormitories and dining halls and ad-
ministrative offices. However, serious deficiencies exist in one
area of the physical plant: sports and recreation.
During the past twenty-five years, a major change in the quali-
ty, size and diversity of intercollegiate athletic and recreation
facilities has occurred at a majority of the colleges with which
Lebanon Valley College competes for students. Lebanon Valley
College was near the "top of the list" in terms of sports facilities
in 1961; today the College finds itself near the bottom in these
Most of LVC's competitor colleges have not overlooked the im-
portance of having first-rate facilities for intramural and recrea-
tional use. Lebanon Valley College necessarily deferred address-
ing this need while raising funds for the Science Center. Now,
however, the time has come to focus attention on this very impor-
tant aspect of the College's program. To quote from a recent
report submitted by a Presidential Committee on Intercollegiate
Athletics: "an imperative exists to improve our athletic/recrea-
tional facilities at the earliest possible time. Without a major effort
to improve our facilities, we are convinced that we will have a
difficult task in attracting both quality athletes and students in
general to enroll at Lebanon Valley College."
The Valley 6
Charles W. Wolfe '44
As a result of early success in
The 125th Anniversan/ Campaign
a new recreational sports facility
—The Edward H. Arnold Sports
Center— is currently under con-
struction. While the center is not
completely funded as of yet, it is
clear that by the end of the cam-
paign in 1991, it wUl be possible
to retire any short-term loans re-
quired during the construction
II. The Need to Increase the Endowment
In this era of high costs and financial constraints, the reserve
funds which can be put to work earning interest and dividends
- the endowment of the College - can provide the margin be-
tween offering a good education and an excellent education. En-
dowment income serves as one of the bridges between tuition
and fees and the total cost of a college education. It is also cost ef-
fective, for gifts placed in the endowment fund are never con-
sumed but continue to provide annual support for generations to
At Lebanon Valley College, the financial support from in-
creased endowment income is especially needed in two areas:
• To provide increased scholarship aid to students;
• To provide additional endowed professorial chairs.
Many students attend college under considerable financial
pressure. Indeed, it is fair to say that most young men and
women who seek a college education require financial assistance.
Because the need for financial aid is so great, the availability of
scholarships is a major factor in the enrollment of outstanding
students. If Lebanon Valley College is to remain competitive, the
College must increase its scholarship funds.
Competitive faculty salaries are also of utmost importance to
the future of Lebanon Valley College. Revenues from increased
endowment will supplement tuition income and enable the Col-
lege to seek out and retain the highly qualified faculty necessary
to maintain educational excellence.
A major objective of The 125th Anniversari/ Campaign is to in-
crease the endowment of the College.
III. The Need to Fund Special Projects
Finally, the College must address itself to funding the special
projects which are a part of quality educational programming.
Special support for both capital and current needs is the key to
the ability of the College to balance the budget. This type of sup-
port allows the College to respond to unforeseen opportunity
and challenges. It is essential that Lebanon Valley College con-
tinue to exf)ertment, revise, renew and expand its offerings to in-
sure that its programs remain dynamic and relevant. Unre-
stricted funds provide flexibility for this process to occur.
The College will pursue two primary educational objectives
with funds raised by The 125th Anniversary Campaign.
• To purchase additional computers for the campus to be used
by administration, faculty and students;
• To fund special projects as necessary and appropriate.
AH of these projects are essential to the future of Lebanon
Valley College. If the College is to remain strong and vital it
simply must address the need for much-improved athletic
facilities and increased endowment while also providing the
resources to fund special projects and programs.
As Fall approaches, graduates and friends will be hearing
more about The 125th Annivasari/ Campaign and their important
role in assuring its success.
Questions: Key to Learning
"Outstanding" professor Dr. Don B\Tne leads a class discussion.
In February 1987, the College began a
series of weekly columns with the
Lebanon Daily Neivs. Topics, written by
LVC students, faculty and administrators,
have covered a variety of issues including
how to prepare for college . . . how to pay
for college . . . and what graduation day
In this reprint. Dr. Donald E. Byrne,
associate professor of religion and 1987 co-
recipient of the Lindback Award for distin-
guished teaching, describes (via a self-
interview) what makes an outstanding
Q: Dr. Byrne, what are the qualities of an outstanding teacher?
A: It's difficult to give a simple answer to that question. The
many outstanding teachers I've known at this College and
elsewhere come in all shapes and sizes. Some lecture beautifully
others lead intriguing discussions. Some teach as much by what
they are as by what they say. Some are popular, others are not.
Some are warm and friendly, but others, you'd swear, lived on
nails and dry ice.
Q: I see your point. Still, there must be something that all
these different types have in common.
A: For a start, they know their stuff. Most students have a
pretty good nose for phonies.
Q: Anything else?
A: Honesty. It may sound strange to say this, but teachers who
really know their stuff also know better than anyone else the
stuff they don't know. They're not afraid to answer a student
question by saying, "1 don't know."
Q: That does sound strange. Who would want to be taught by
an ignorant teacher?
A: It's a different kind of ignorance than the kind that mas-
querades as knowledge. There are lots of people around who
think they know everything about religion, politics, business —
you name it, they've got all the answers. But they're really bigots,
and sometimes fanatics, because they don't know their limits and
won't listen to anyone else. That's real ignorance! The "I don't
know" of the teacher, on the other hand, is the beginning of
learning, not the end. If you ever run into a teacher who thinks
he's finished, he probably is.
Q: This is a bit confusing. Do you always speak in riddles?
A: Good teachers are alive with questions, and communicate
curiosity to their students. It's easy and boring to just know
things. The fun is to discover them, and for that you need some-
one pushing and leading you on. A good teacher senses the
mystery just beyond the limits of what we know.
Q: Mystery? Limits? Aren't you getting a bit carried away?
What ever happened to the tried and true view that teachers
were supposed to dish out information on a subject and test
students' ability to master it?
A: Nothing wrong with that, up to a point. Carried too far, it's
the sort of thing that gives education a black eye. The best
teachers I've seen are not like fast food restaurants, spewing out
tons of tasteless information. Rather, they try to get their students
to think more deeply, truly courageously, imaginatively, broadly,
and compassionately than they ever have before. And for that
you need questions.
Q: Questions? You're being deliberately provocative. And
besides, I like fast food.
A. Yes, questions, the pure gold of teaching, and as hard to
find. A good question is worth a thousand answers. Really gcxsd
questions knock you out of your socks and show you how dumb
you really are. Little kids are particularly good at asking ques-
tions. Usually adults shush them up, most often because they're
annoyed at being unable to answer them. Only when you don't
have an answer, and you know you don't, are you ready to begin
learning. An outstanding teacher is a person who gets you to that
place where you can begin teaching yourself.
Q: Frankly, I have more questions now about what makes a
teacher outstanding than I did when we began. Could you put it
in a nutshell? Would you say that you are an outstanding teacher?
A: Well, what do you mean by "outstanding?"

Alumni Weekend '87
LVC Honors Distinguished Alumnus
Dr. Howard A. Neidig '43 was named the 31st Distinguished
Alumnus at LVC's Alumni Awards Luncheon during Alumni
Weekend held in June.
Neidig received a B.S. degree in chemistry from Lebanon
Valley College in 1943 and an M.S. degree in chemistry from the
University of Delaware in 1946. Two years later he received the
first Ph.D. in chemistry granted by that institution. The same
year, LVC appointed Neidig as an assistant professor of chemistry
and in 1951, Neidig succeeded his mentor. Dr. Andrew Bender,
as chairman of the department. Neidig filled that position until
his retirement from the faculty in 1985, thus completing 37 years
of service to his Alma Mater.
Neidig was a major leader in the development of the Chemical
Bond Approach Project, a new thematic approach to the teaching
of chemistry, sponsored in the '60s by the National Science
Foundation. In 1970, Neidig received the prestigious Outstanding
Chemistry Teachers Award of the Manufacturing Chemists
Association. He has been active in every level of the Division of
Chemical Education of the American Chemical Society and has
made significant contributions to science curriculum develop-
ment in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Neidig also served on the Palmyra Area School Board and the
Board of Trustees of Keystone Junior College.
Helen Neidig accepted the Distinguished Alumnus Award tor her husband, H.
Anthony (Tony) Neidig. A ruptured appendix and subsequent surgery prevented
Tony's attendance at the Alumni Avsarcis Luncheon. Wes Dellinger, president of the

the Lebanon Valley College faculty to
the necessity for our institution to
be a national and international
leader in undergraduate education in
as many academic areas as possible.
In order for my dream to come true,
all of us must continue to support
the Valley in as many ways as
possible. The health of the College
depends on the continued support of
dedicated people like yourselves.

"The best life plan you can make is to be aware" says Dr.
Grace Murray Hopper, who delivered the Commencement
address to the Class of 1987. Hopper was presented the
Honorary Doctor of Science degree during the festivities.
"You are the future of this country, and all of
what we are trying to do will lie in your
— Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
During her commencement address, Dr.
Grace Murray Hopper, the Rear Admiral
who was retired as the U.S. Navy's longest-
lived officer on active duty in August, 1986,
challenged the 1987 graduates to accept their
role as catalysts for a future of change.
"The best life plan you can make is to be
aware," stated Hopper. "Know what's going
on in the world, be aware of news, of
developments, of things that are happening.
In your chosen field stay up to date. Keep
being aware for what's coming next so that as
you move along the next opportunity that
comes you can be ready to grab it, because
opportunities will appear."
Hopper herself never shunned change and
took hold of opportunity. At the time of her
retirement from the Navy, she was assigned
to the Naval Data Automation Command in
Washington, DC. Much of her military ser-
vice was devoted to keeping the United States
Navy on the leading edge of computer
Since 1952, Hopper has published more
than 50 papiers and articles on computer soft-
ware and programming languages. She was
a leader in the development of the COBOL
computer language and has served on the
ANSI X3.4 Committee on the standardization
of computer languages. She also serves on
the CODASYL Executive Committee.
She is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Vassar
College were she received a Vassar College
Fellowship. She continued her education at
Yale University where she earned an M.A. in
1930, and a Ph.D. in 1934, together with elec-
tion to Sigma Xi and the receipt of two Sterl-
ing Scholarships. She attended New York
University as a Vassar Faculty Fellow in 1941.
During her career. Hopper taught at several
colleges and universities, including Vassar
College, Barnard College, Harvard Universi-
ty, the University of Pennsylvania and
George Washington University.
At her retirement ceremony aboard the
U.S.S. Constitution in Boston, Navy
Secretary John F. Lehman, Jr presented Hop-
per with the Distinguished Service Medal.
More than 40 colleges and universities have
conferred honorary degrees on her, and she
has been honored by her peers on several oc-
casions. She was the recipient of the first
Computer Sciences "Man of the Year" award
given by the Data Processing Management
Association. Her entry in "Who's Who" takes
34 lines to thumbnail her accomplishments,
appointments and honors. Upon retirement
from the Navy, Admiral Hopper became a
Senior Consultant for the Digital Equipment
Corporation in Washington, D.C.
Before Admiral Hopper finished her ad-
dress, she left the graduating class a promise.
"If during the next five years any one of
you says, 'but we've always done it that way,'
1 will instantly materialize beside you, and I
will haunt you for 24 hours and see if I can
get you to take another look. And 1 know it
works. I've already had over 100 letters
thanking me for haunting people."

"Think globally, act locally," was the
message Bishop Joseph H. Yeakel of the
Washington, DC, Area of the United
Methodist Church brought to the 1987
graduates during the College's annual Bac-
Yeakel's message encouraged the graduates
to be "citizens of the world." "Those who are
privileged to be educated among us must
serve the world if it is to survive," said Yeakel.
Yeakel, a native of Mahanoy City, PA,
received his B. A. degree in 1949. In 1968, he

setting him adrift." "Today, you will be set
free and hopefully will not go adrift."
Yeakel completed his study for the ministry
in 1952, receiving an M. Div. degree from the
United Theological Seminary, Dayton, Ohio.
He was ordained the same year in the former
Evangelical United Brethren Church.
In 1963, Yeakel joined the staff of the EUB
Board of Evangelism, serving first as assistant
secretary and from 1965 to 1968 as executive
secretary. After merger between the
Evangelical United Brethren and The
Methodist Church, he became secretary of
the Board of Evangelism. Four years later, he
was elected a bishop in the new denomina-
tion—the first former EUB so honored.
After twelve years in the New York West
Area, headquartered in Syracuse, Yeakel was
reassigned to the prestigious Washington,

Receives NSF Grant
LVC's Chemistry Department received a
$23,000 grant from the College Science In-
strumentation Program of the National
Science Foundation in May.
The matching grant from the acquisition of
a gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer
(GC/MS) was awarded on the basis of a pro-
posal written by Dr. Owen A. Moe, Jr.,
associate professor of chemistry, entitled "The
Introduction of a Gas Chromatograph/Mass
Spectrometer into the Chemistry Curriculum
to Strengthen Laboratory Instruction."
"This is a sophisticated instrument rarely
found in small colleges," said Moe.
The instrument is used to separate com-
ponents of complex chemical mixtures, to
determine the molecular masses of the in-
dividual components, and to make possible
the identification of the components, and is
used in the analysis of trace environmental
contaminants such as pesticides and
chlorinated hydrocarbons, in drug testing
and analysis, and in many types of basic
Hotel Management Program
Beginning the fall of 1988, Lebanon Valley
College will offer a four-year degree program
in hotel management.
Vice president and dean of the faculty,
William J. McGill, says the program wiU have
a different quality from that of the two-year
program previously offered. "This will be a
hotel management program still in the con-
text of a liberal arts education," he explained.
For two years, the College has offered asso-
ciate's degree programs in hotel management,
food services and travel administration.
Upxjn recommendation of a study committee,
the food service and travel administration
programs will be discontinued, and the hotel
management program will be expanded into
a bachelor's program within the management
"In a sense, the (associate's programs) were
sort of appendages on the Institution,"
McGill said. "They had no firm rooting in a
But with Lebanon Valley's being a scant
seven miles from Hershey and less than 20
miles from Lancaster, expansion of the hotel
management program into a four-year course
of study (rather than eliminate it entirely)
was a logical choice.
"We're in the middle of an area where hotel
management and resorts are a fairly signifi-
cant portion of the economy," McGill said.
"Because of the environment and our desire
to reflect in some way that environment, it
was a natural thing for us to do."
Students entering the program, however,
won't simply learn the tricks of the trade.
Each must meet the same general education
requirements that LVC students enrolled in
more traditional programs must meet.
"The program operates like the four legs of
a table," says Alan G. Heffner, management
department chairman. "They must take the
liberal arts core. They'll take core courses in
management and in sp)ecif ic hotel theory, and
practice it all with internships."
Heffner said the program has been de-
signed to prepare students for a wide range
"Not every graduate is able to get a job
specific to the hotel industry," he said.

"Because of the general educational core and

A Silver Anniversary
Dr. C. F. Joseph Tom (right), professor of economics, coor-
dinates an annual bus trip to New York City, Washington
DC. and/or Philadelphia for LVC students interested in
business careers. G. Harold Bucher '47 (left), president and
chief executive officer of the People's National Bank,
Lebanon, PA, which underwrites the cost of the trip,
believes a strong relationship should exist between
business and education.
For the past 25 years, the People's National
Bank, under the leadership of president and
chief executive officer G. Harold Bucher '47,
has sponsored the Lebanon Valley College
Economic Lecture Series. And for the past 22
years, the bank has provided additional
educational opportunities by underwriting
an annual student bus trip and giving a
scholarship award for achievement in
economics and business administration.

selected for the 1987 edition of Who's Who
Among Students in American Universities
and Colleges at LVC's annual student awards
ceremony in April.
According to Bucher, the lecture series pro-
vides students and faculty with the oppor-
tunity to hear the personal experiences and
professional opinions of various leaders in the
fields of economics and business. Past lec-
turers include Lincoln W. Hall, staff
economist with Fidelity-Philadelphia Trust
Company; Ewan Clague, former Commis-
sioner of Labor Statistics, United States
Department of Labor; Dr. David Eastburn,
former president of the Federal Reserve Bank
of Philadelphia; Charles O'Hay, senior vice
president and chairman of the investment
policy committee. Butcher and Singer, Inc.;
and several professors of economics and
Though the lecturers give students indirect
experience with "the real world of business,"
the bus trips allow them to gain first-hand in-
sight into how the theories of economics and
business administration are put into practice
on a daily basis. Bucher emphasizes the need
for this insight on the part of students. He
stresses the importance of flexibility in using
theory as a guideline while at the same time
"relying on good common sense" to make
sound decisions on an ongoing basis.
The trips span two days and one night,
with the People's National Bank covering
transportation and hotel expenses. Dr. C. F.
Joseph Tom, professor of economics and coor-
dinator of the trips, says the excursions alter-
nate between New York City and
Philadelphia/Washington DC. "That way/'
says Tom, "students can see a different place

In addition to the opportunities the lec-
tures and trips provide for all students in the

ment scholarship award to help students who
excel in the field. The primary criterion for
the award is scholastic achievement, and

"There should be a nice strong relationship
between business and education," says
Bucher. Tom credits Bucher for much of the
success of the programs. Tom, who chaired
the department from 1964 - 74, formalized
many of the programs set up by the bank.
He too believes the two arenas should be
closely related and wishes more businesses
would follow the fine example set by Bucher
and the People's National Bank.

A LIBRARY EHDOWUtHT FUND

KATHERINE E. SCHULTZ
DR. DONALD I MRS. FRANCES FIELDS ■21.79
The late Dr. Donald E. Fields,
LVC Librarian Emeritus, last
November participated in the
dedication of a plaque in the
Gossard Library in his honor
Miss Kathryn E. Schultz
established a library
endowment fund in excess of
$160,000 in honor of Dr. Fields
and his wife Frances. The an-

supplements the Library's
Don was my friend.
It was a friendship which ripened over many years of mutual trust and respect.
With a library problem he was always able to help because he was a scholar as well as a profes-
However, I think of him mostly at home in his little stone house steeped in history and charm.
I think of long conversations before an open fire in his living room; sessions in his greenhouse
watching the miracle of the night-blooming cereus coming into flower; gatherings around his table
to sample the gourmet foods he and Frances had learned to prepare in cooking school; and quiet
summer evenings in the privacy of his back-yard patio.
He was a many-sided man. An intellectual, he appreciated the classics but he also had a huge ap-
petite for detective stories. An organist, he loved Bach chorales but he also had a large collection of
jazz records. He was a botanist, a bird-watcher, and a carpenter.
He was a good listener with a keen sense of humor. He encouraged story telling. Then he would
sit quietly, not missing a word, just putting in a pithy comment now and then.
He was kind, generous and courteous. He was a gentle man - and a gentleman.
He was my friend.

Literature Award Established
LVC English majors in classes of 1987 and
1988 have established the Dr. Agnes Boyle
O'Donnell Literature Av\ard in honor of the
long-term professor of English v\'ho retired in
May, 1987 after 26 years of service.
The yearly award will be given to an out-
standing English major with a deep under-
standing of and appreciation for literature
and the human qualities that bring literature
to life. The first award will be given in April
of 1988 as part of the LVC Spring Awards
Ceremony. The LVC English Department will
designate the recipient.
"It is a great honor — and very moving,
especially since it was set up entirely by stu-
dent initiative," said O'Donnell. "I'm par-
ticularlv pleased that the fund will be used
primarilv for the benefit of good students and
the English Department."
Dr. O'Donnell, a native of Philadelphia,
joined the LVC faculty on a part-time basis in
1961, assuming full-time teaching status in
1963. She received the A.B. degree in English
from Immaculata College, the M.Ed, degree
in secondary education from Temple Univer-
sity, and the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in
English from the University of Pennsylvania.
