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 College. "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 remain? 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 favorable development. 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 surplus. 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 be soU! 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 privilege! Sincerely, Arthur L.

Melissa Huffman's article "Long on Hope" gives us a look at one of tomorrow's surgeons. A review of the inter- national exhibit "Anne Frank in the World" describes how a modern display teaches us about the past and provokes us to think about the future of our world. The LVC trustees have looked into the future and recent- ly approved a capital campaign that will take us into the 1990's and beyond. And Professor Don Byrne gives us a glimspe of how he challenges today's student, citizen of tomorrow. This issue wouldn't be complete without a review of Alumni Weekend and Commencement to tie it all together Past, Present and Future. Enjoy this issue! Sincerely, -C^ Maril A.

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 bank. 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 material. 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 dimethylsulphoxide (DMSO). 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 be answered. 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 research. 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 articular cartilage. 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. International Exhibit on Campus by Maril A. Weister 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 campus. 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- ings." 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.

The Valley 5 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 beginning!" 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 same areas. 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 process. 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 come. 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 means. 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 teacher. 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?" The Valley 7 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 Alumni Association, presented the award. "I feel even more committed today than when I was an active member of 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 future of Lebanon Valley College is ours! Let's make it great!"

The Valley 10 Campus Update Commencement '87 "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 hands." — 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 technology. 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." Yeakel '49 Delivers Baccalaureate Address "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- calaureate service. 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 received an honorary D.D. degree from his alma mater Yeakel spoke of his graduation day when Lebanon Valley College "set him free without 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, D.C. Area. Bishop Joseph H. Yeakel '49 delivered the Baccalaureate address in Miller Chapel. Yeakel, president of the United Methodist General Council on Finance and Administra- tion, also is a member of the Board of Gover- The Valley 11 nors of Wesley Theological Seminary and the Board of Trustees of Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. From 1976 to 1980 Yeakel chaired the General Board of Church and Society. He also is a former president of the New York State Council of Churches. Yeakel received an honorary doctor of law from Otterbein College, Westerville, OH, in 1975 and an honorary doctor of sacred theology from Keuka College, Keuka Park, NX in 1978. Prior to joining the EUB Board of Evangelism, Yeakel served as pastor of St. Paul's (now Otterbein Church), Hagerstown, MD, pastor of the Fifth Church (now Messiah), York, PA, and pastor of the Memorial Church, Silver Spring, MD. Before attending LVC, Yeakel served in the United States Navy Seabees in Guam and the Marianna Islands. Yeakel and his wife, Lois J. Shank, reside near Washington, D.C.

McGill, vice president and dean of faculty, Dr. Arthur Ford, chairman and professor of English, and Dr John Heff- ner, professor of philosophy, will represent the College at the National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute on Humanities Scholarship and Instruction for Non-traditional Students at Minnesota University in August. Applications were competitive, with only 25 institutions nationwide receiving invita- tions to send teams. LVC was one of two in- stitutions from PA invited, one of three private liberal arts colleges invited. McGill said the selection of LVC to par- ticipate "recognizes the College's commit- ment to non-traditional learners through its programs at Annville, Fort Indiantown Gap, and Harrisburg and will provide us with an opportunity to further strengthen the cultural and historical dimensions of those programs." Faculty Attend Leadership Workshop on Campus LVC held a Leadership Studies Faculty Training Workshop in June for faculty in- terested in the College's Leadership Studies Program , "The LSP Faculty Training Workshop was designed to help prepare our faculty members and administrators interested in our program in particular and the study of leadership in general," said Warren Thomp- son, director of the Leadership Studies Program.

A Suggestion For 1987 WTiy not resolve to review your will during 1987 (or have a will drawn if you have not yet taken this important step). You may need to update your will if changes have occurred among your beneficiaries or with your estate planning. Always consult an attorney when drawing a will or amending an existing one. Please call or write to the Executive Director of Development for the folder, "Four Ways to Provide for Lebanon Valley College in Your Will." This will help your attorney if you decide to make a bequest to the College. Your attorney will need to know the legal title of the College: "Lebanon Valley College, Ann- ville, Pennsylvania." Shonk Scholarship A new scholarship of approximately $1,500 has been established through the estate of Alvin E. Shonk '16. The Scholarship, to be awarded to a member of the freshman class, is renewable annually and awarded on the basis of financial need, academic standing and participation in clubs or intercollegiate sports. Information is available through the Admissions Office at 1-800-223-6181 in Penn- sylvania or 1-800-445-6181 outside the state. Chemistry Department 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 chemical studies. Hotel Management Program Is Revamped 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 department. "In a sense, the (associate's programs) were sort of appendages on the Institution," McGill said. "They had no firm rooting in a department." 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 of jobs. "Not every graduate is able to get a job specific to the hotel industry," he said. The Valley 13 "Because of the general educational core and management courses, however, they can look to other areas. And if they decide to change careers, they will be well-prepared."

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.

Missing from the picture is Tina Marie Bakowski. The College honored 26 seniors who were 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 business administration. 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 each year." In New York City, the students visit the Manufacturers Hanover Trust, Rothchild's, the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank and Merril, Lynch, Pierce, Fen- ner and Smith. On the combined Philadelphia/Washington D.C. trip the students tour the Federal Reserve, the Mint, the Bureau of Engraving, the House of Representatives, the Senate, the Federal Reserve— Board of Governors and the Smithsonian. In addition to the opportunities the lec- tures and trips provide for all students in the department, the bank has set up an achieve- ment scholarship award to help students who excel in the field. The primary criterion for the award is scholastic achievement, and economics department determines the number of recipients based on their qualifications. "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.

The Valley 21 In Memoriam A LIBRARY EHDOWUtHT FUND HAS 8EEH ESTA8LISKED BV 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- nual interest from the fund supplements the Library's operating budget. 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- sional librarian. 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. Rajmrks by Edna Cannean at the funeral service of Donald E. Fields on Sunday, May 31, 1987. The Valley 22 Just In . . . 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.
