Stephen Scanniello: 
Life Is A Bed Of Roses 

by Kathleen Yorty Thach 

For the past three years, life for Stephen Scanniello '78 
has been a bed of roses. 
Strike that. 

For the past three years, life for Stephen Scanniello 78 has 
been a one-acre rose garden with 15 rosebeds and borders con- 
taining nearly 6,000 rosebushes of over 1000 varieties. 

Scanniello is rosarian for the nation's finest and most complete 
collection of American roses, the Cranford Rose Garden in New 
York City's Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Started 60 years ago with 
funds donated by Mr. and Mrs. Walter V. Cranford, the garden 
was designed to be what some have called an 'animated text- 
book', a place where learning and enjoyment blend in beauty. 

As rosarian, Scanniello oversees the care of the roses from 
planting to cultivating to fertilizing, pruning, weeding and 
watering. There are times when it's a hands-on experience. In 
fact, on his way to becoming rosarian in January of 1985, he 
worked for a while as an instructor in the Children's Garden and 
then as a gardener on the grounds crew responsible for the entire 
52-acre Brooklyn Botanic Garden. He operated a back hoe, 
removed tree stumps and dug ditches. Fortunately, the feel of 
thorns (as he practiced for his pruning test) and the smell of fer- 
tilizer (as he trucked in 50 tons of cow manure) have not 
diminished his love for roses. 

But no need to feel sorry for Scanniello. There is a glamorous 
side to a rosarian's life as well. Consider, for one thing, how he 
has worked along side the best landscape artists in planning the 
city gardens of celebrities and politicians, and, for another, how 
he gets h * glon in rave re\ lews ol rose-lovers w titers and garden 

Scanniello seems to have found 
the perfect job for someone who— for 
as long as he can remember— has 
had a fondness for growing things. 

"The roses will fairly overpower you with their profusions of 

color and scent." 

". . . (the roses') vigor and diversity . . . make the finest display 

that you are likely to see anywhere." 

Then, too, the Cranford Garden's Annual Rose Day (when 
"members only" get to enjoy the garden, lunch and a guest 
speaker) can be a pretty glorious time for the rosarian-in-charge. 
Scanniello's first Rose Day reinforced what experience has 
already proved— that hard work and stress are indeed part and 
parcel of even the more glamorous aspects of his job. 

It was raining, he remembers, and he had to clean the 
walkways. His nervousness mounted as he was introduced to the 
donor's nephew. The awareness of his own inexperience became 
painful as the former rosarian— who had been at the Gardens for 
25 years— kept close watch over him. Only after the former 
rosarian took Scanniello aside and said, "You've got it" could 
Scanniello begin to enjoy the event. 

With growing experience and proven performances have come 
opportunities to travel to Europe, Bermuda and many cities 
across the United States to talk about roses— from how-to

perience has already proved— that

seminars on selection, care and feeding to educational lectures 
on the history of the rose. He's been invited to speak at rose con- 
ventions, schools and garden clubs. And, because education is 
his focus, that brings him almost as much satisfaction as the 
roses themselves. 

Education, he explains, has been the focus of the Brooklyn 
Botanic Garden since it was built on the site of a city garbage 

Scanniello shares the philosophy of Harold Rhys Caparn, the 
landscape architect who designed the original gardens, so he has 
had no difficulty in remaining faithful to the basic plans. The 
original design of The Cranford Rose Garden included the use of 
15 rosebeds to illustrate the development of the rose, from the 
first China roses and tea roses brought from southern China to 
Europe in the late 1700s to early hybrid perpetuals to floribundas 
and grandifloras. The perimeter of the garden was planted with 
original roses and old garden roses. Climbers and ramblers were 
trailed up double arches on either side of the garden. 

In researching the history of his garden, Scanniello was sur- 
prised to discover that Caparn also had an LVC connection. It 
was Caparn who provided landscape designs for the Lebanon 
Valley College campus in the late '20s. 

In American Landscape Architect for a December 1930 article 
entitled "Scientific and Decorative Principles in a Botanical 
Laboratory" and subtitled "A Detailed Study of the Plantings for 
the Grounds of the Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Penn- 
sylvania," Caparn presented a detailed list of plants and a sketch 
of the campus. He opened the article with the following 

"Lebanon Valley College has a campus that covers about 
eleven and a half acres in the middle of the town of Ann- 
ville, Pennsylvania. Five large buildings and several 
smaller ones are arranged to front along the enclosing 
streets so as to enclose an interior open space of several 
acres. It will be seen at once that this plan lends itself well 
to the display of the buildings themselves, and to the 
development of a good frame or setting of planting. 

"Biological science is the chief subject of the curriculum. 
Professor S. Hoffman Derickson is much interested in 
botany and plant genetics and in carrying the educational 
influence beyond the classroom. In the preliminary 
discussion of the general planting problem, the writer sug- 
gested that it might be possible to work out such a plan of 
plant arrangement as that of the systematic section of the 
Brooklyn Botanic Garden, though on a much smaller and 
simpler scale . . ." 

Scanniello seems to have found the perfect job for someone 
who— for as long as he can remember— has had a fondness for 
growing things: a vegetable garden in quadrants in the backyard

of his boyhood home in River Edge, New Jersey; his grand- 
parents' open garden, known to the seven Scanniello kids as 
"the farm"; seeds he sold when elementary school age; the forget- 
me-nots that grew by the pond at Kreiderheim; the beefsteak 
begonia and cactus plants purchased from the LVC Auxiliary to 
brighten up his freshman dorm. 

But the perfect job didn't simply come to Scanniello when he 
graduated from Lebanon Valley College. In fact, a career in his 
field didn't seem so bright for the biology major. At first he took 
odd jobs where he could find them. For a time he was an ap- 
prentice in an art department and did part-time work as a 
photographer. He also studied photography part-time at the 
Manhattan School of Visual Arts, contemplating the possibility of 
a career in nature photography. Nothing really satisfied him, so 
when given the opportunity to take a job for Meadox Chemicals, 
he took it. "Out of desperation," he says. At last he had a biology- 
related position. Suturing sections of human umbilical cords 
together to be used as prosthetic lower leg artery replacements. 

A year later, when he learned through an educator of a staff 
opening at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, he didn't let the 
memory of his dad's warning to stay out of Brooklyn stand in his 
way. He interviewed for the position on his 26th birthday and 

was hired the following week. He worked first as an instructor in 
the children's greenhouses, where hundreds of city children 
learn about plants by planting. Then he became a traveling in- 
structor, teaching three classes per day in hospitals and institu- 
tions to children who couldn't come to classes at the Children's 

"It was a depressing experience," he says. "But it was a fulfill- 
ing experience. Children who wouldn't communicate with 
anyone . . . became your friend by the end of the program." 

He left the children with a living plant and, in many cases, 
new reasons for hope. 

For Stephen Scanniello, the 
future looks rosey. 

Today, Scanniello is using a variety of other ways to educate 
and inspire with roses. He stars in a 45-minute video, "For the 
Love of Roses: A Year in the Life of a Rosarian", released last 
November and sold through seed catalogs and video stores. He's 
working on the publication of a book. About roses, of course. He 
has become an apprentice judge for The American Rose Society. 
And he's working with the Lebanon Vallev College alumni office 
on an alumni weekend program centered around the theme 
"Everything's Coming Up Roses." 

It's too tempting to not say it. For Stephen Scanniello, the 
future looks rosey.

The Tailor" 

by Kathleen Y. Thach 

Mention the Class of '27, and the first name to pop into 
mind may well be Sammy "the Tailor" Clark. Active in 
the Alumni Association for more years than most peo- 
ple can remember, a class agent and community leader, Sammy 
has been invaluable to Lebanon Valley College. 

One may wonder why he is so persistent in his efforts to build 
up the Alumni Scholarship Fund, for example, or to get his 
classmates to support the college in financial and service areas. 
But when the account of his student days at LVC is told, the 
wonderment ceases. 

Sammy remembers coming to the Valley as a "poor, lonely 
Jewish boy" in an Evangelical United Brethren environment. But 
before his first year was over, he earned the respect and love of 
students and staff . 

Initially, because the food wasn't kosher, Sammy never ate in 
the college dining rooms. Then, to his amazement, the cook ap- 
proached him about the matter one day and offered to drive to 
Harrisburg to procure the food and cooking utensils required to 
prepare his food. "Just give me a list," he instructed. 

Have a hearty belly laugh daily 
even if it is against yourself ... let 
the complaining for others, enjoy 
every second of the day 

"I went to my room and thought about what this man was 
willing to do just for me," Sammy says as he remembers the in- 
cident. The next day he went back to the kitchen and told the 
cook that he had decided he could make some compromises 
himself. He would simply eat what he could from the menu 
shared by all students. Eating in the dining room helped 
eliminate some of his feelings of aloneness. But he still faced 
financial problems. 

Having had experience working for a Lebanon tailor, Sammy 
decided to offer to press clothes for students, for a small charge, 
and he would use the money to help pay for his education. All 
was going well with his dorm room pressing business until a 
fellow student turned him in to college authorities for using the 
college's electricity to make a profit. 

Called before a faculty member Sammy now refers to fondly as 
"the prosecutor," Sammy pleaded his cause. 

"What uses more electricity?" he asked. "My iron or the irons 
the students use to press their own clothes." 

"How much do you charge for suits? the Prosecutor asked. 

"Fifty cents," the Tailor replied. 

The Prosecutor paused only briefly, then responded, "I'll bring 
you three tomorrow." 

And the case was closed . 

Sammy "The Tailor" 
Clark '27 keeps up with 
the latest adventures of 
world-traveling class- 
mates and continues his 
efforts to build up the 
Alumni Scholarship 

But pressing pants didn't always bring inenough money to pay 
for his college expenses. At one point when he just could not pay 
his weekly bill, he went to the bursar to inform him Sammy 
Clark would have to drop out of college. 

The bursar listened empathetically and declared the debt to be 
a grant. 

Today, Sammy keeps in contact with fellow members of the 
Class of '27. He keeps informed on the latest adventures of such 
world travelers as Madeline Mark Colman, Roy Mouer, Myra 
Sheaffer White, Bernetha Strickler Wright and others. He sor- 
rows with those in ill health and those who — like Sammy— have 
lost a mate. And through it all, he encourages everyone to "have 
Faith . Obey doctor's orders . . ." 

"Have a hearty belly laugh daily, even if it is against yourself . . . 
let the complaining for others, enjoy every second of the day." 

And he practices what he preaches. A typical day finds him 
rising early to attend a prayer service and have breakfast with 
friends. He also spends a few hours doing volunteer work as a 
treasurer in the office of the Lebanon County Historical Society, 
and he attends committee meetings at his synagogue. 

Sammy proves his own philosophy: "Getting physically old 
does not mean that you must get mentally or psychologically

From Africa to Annville 

by Edna J. Carmean 

Born in Sierra Leone, West Africa (the year uncertain), "Lennv 
the Leopard" was given to LVC in 1922 by Dr. William N. 
Martin '18 when he returned from a mission in Africa. Since ar- 
riving on campus, Lenny has become famous for his "travels." 

A biology major at LVC, William Martin had served as 
assistant to the department head, Dr. Samuel H. 
Derickson. It was Dr. Derickson who persuaded him to 
go to the mission field in Sierra Leone, West Africa. He went 
there in 1919 and staved for seven years. He had two special pro- 
jects: one, to research the fears and superstitions of the native 
people, and two, to establish science training at Albert Academy, 
the mission school of the United Brethren Church in Freetown. 
(Since the church merger in 1968, Albert Academv has continued 
under the sponsorship of the United Methodist Church.) 

Once in Africa, Martin soon gained the confidence of the 
natives and thev accompanied him for manv miles on trips to 
visit tribes in the interior. In 1922, thev turned to him for help in 
a crisis. Their lives were in danger. Leopards had been seen. In 
one village, leopards had taken all the dogs and now the people 
were afraid for the lives of their children and old people. 

An experienced hunter in his Pennsylvania boyhood, Martin 
met the challenge. He loaded his rifle, a Marlin 38-55, and 
started up the trail. The entire staff and student body of the 
Academv, about a hundred people, followed him— but at a 
respectful distance. Martin walked slowly, warily, rifle at the 
ready. The leopard suddenly appeared on the trail ahead of him 
and charged. Martin shot through his open mouth. The bullet 
knocked off half of the left killer fang and emerged from the back 
of his neck. The animal fell dead and the audience surged 
forward . 

The Creole hunters wanted to sacrifice the carcass, nose to tail, 
to appease the Old Chief, who they believed had returned as a 
leopard. The Academy boys protested the sacrifice and thev 
settled for a barbeque and the first Leopard Prayer Meeting. The 
animal weighed at least 150 pounds. In his stomach was found: 
one quart of Anteater scales, four hoofs of a Duiker (a small 
antelope), and a dog collar with a little bell attached. One mother 
cried when seeing the collar and said, "The leopard caught him 
at my front door step."

Who's Got Lenny? 

The following "cat tales" were submitted by two alumni 
who were willing to come clean about "thefts of the 
leopard" now that the Statute of Limitations has long since 

. . . from David J. Padley '68 

"I read your article on Lenny the Leopard in the recent 
edition of The Valley with great interest. It reminded me of 
one of Lenny's great adventures twenty years ago during 
the school year of 1965/1966. I was living in the infamous, 
and now long gone, Penway Apartments on Main Street 
with my two roommates, Bill Hohenshelt and Jim Duke, 
when Lenny escaped from his glass cage in the science 
building and began his travels. 

Lenny was gone for several months during which he 
sent letters to the college paper telling of his travels. Sud- 
denly, one evening he appeared at our apartment and ask- 
ed our help in returning to his cage. He said that he had a 
wonderful time but he missed all his friends at LVC. Of 
course we agreed, so Bill, Jim, and I helped Lenny return 
to his cage. 

Lenny promised not to tell anyone who helped him 
return to his cage that night and to the best of my 
knowledge he kept that promise all these years. Since the 
"Statute of Limitation" has now long passed, the truth can 
now be told. I will be anxious to hear of other adventures 
of my good friend Lenny." 

. . . from Allen J. Koppenhaver '53 

In any case, it began with Dr. Struble's American Lit 
class. We were reading Poe's "The Black Cat" in which a 
man, one of Poe's "driven" people, is tormented by a black 
cat which he eventually, in a drunken rage, hangs by the 
neck on a tree outside his house. Well, that night we had a 
thick fog settle that was still there the next morning when 
I got up to go over to work in the kitchen for breakfast. We 
still had North Hall, the women's dorm and dining hall 
downstairs. The campus had a large inner circle walkway 
from the Men's Dorm to North to the Conservatory to the 
Ad Bldg, and the usual lamp posts all around. On this 
particular morning there was a dead cat hanging on each 
of the posts, and those of us walking saw them one by one 
through the fog on the way to breakfast. I should hasten to 
say that the cats were "borrowed" from the Bio Lab where 
they were kept in formaldehyde for dissection, so no one 
lost a cat that night. 

The piece de resistance, however, was Lenny. He had 
also been borrowed and placed on the top step of the 
porch of North Hall so that as we came to breakfast in the 
fog, half awake, we'd start up the steps and there was Len- 
ny looking as if he were ready to pounce. The perpetrators 
had moved him back just far enough so that you couldn't 
see the wooden stand. Needless to say, we were quite 
awake for breakfast that particular morning. Does anyone 
want to admit to the deed now that the statute of limita- 
tions is past?" 

Just who was in on this cat caper? 

As recently as the early 80's, Lenny was spirited from 
the College Center at 1:00 a.m. for a ride in a Dodge Dart 
(doors open). He was missing a few weeks, but eventually 
returned. Rumor has it that this kidnapping included 
students, administrators and faculty.

To David M. Frye, managing editor of THE QUAD 

Leopard! Leopard! travelin' light 
'Cross the campus in the night 
What immortal hands would try 
To steal thy fearful symmetry? 

From what dim and dusty lair 
Do your eyes, now glassy, stare? 
On what wings did you escape? 
Who would dare to seize thy gape? 

And what shoulders, or what dart, 
Could come in stealth, and then depart? 
And why thy place so empty leave? 
Oh Lenny! Many sorely grieve. 

What's the difference? What's to gain? 
Lenny, please come home again. 
What, in Annville? What dread group 
Helped you, Lenny, fly the coop? 

When the stars throw down their spears 
And LVC is drenched in tears 
Will they smile, their work to see, 
Culprits one or two or three? 

Leopard! Leopard! travelin' light 
'Cross the campus in the night 
What immortal hands would try 
To steal thy fearful symmetry? 

By A. Nonymous, 

With apologies to William Blake 

Because women were considered weak and inferior beings, the 
natives believed that all leopards were male. Martin killed five 
leopards in all and Number Three was undeniably a female, so 
that superstition was laid to rest. After the five beasts were 
destroyed, no more leopards were seen. The community was 
safe, dogs re-appeared, and William Martin was hailed as a 
savior. He had truly delivered the natives from evil. 

It is not clear when the LVC leopard acquired the name 
"Lenny". Martin referred to him as "Number One." Because of 
admiration for his mentor, Dr. Derickson, Martin made a gift of 
Number One to the College. Having taken a course in taxidermy 
before going to Africa, Martin knew just how to proceed. He 
took careful measurements of the animal from head to toe before 
skinning it. Then he shipped the hide and the measurements to 
Annville. It was mounted in Williamsport by Fred Beck of the 
Pennsylvania Game Commission. 

Dr. Derickson was delighted with the gift. As a result, he 
wrote an article for The Evangel entitled, "Saving Souls with a 
High Power Rifle." 

The biology department maintained the Tyrone Biological 
Museum under the skylight in the middle of the third floor in 
the Administration Building, and Lenny became the centerpiece 
of the exhibit. Generations of LVC students saw him standing 

One morning in the Spring of 1939, there was a large vacant 
spot in the museum. Lenny was gone. There was great conster- 
nation within the biology faculty and the administration. Presi- 
dent Clyde A. Lynch was incensed at the effrontery of the 
thieves. The next evening, special precautions were taken. Hans, 
the night watchman, was posted outside the museum door, 
where he sat all night. In the morning, early-rising students were 
gleeful at the sight of a big-horned sheep's head (also from the 
campus museum) perched on the peak of the heating plant roof. 

The President's anger over the "kidnappings" was expressed 
forcefully and he was rewarded by a series of post cards from 
Lenny coming from different points in the state. Cards were also 
sent to the Lebanon Daily News and the affair became a matter 
of community amusement. 

Lenny finally reappeared. He was discovered one dark night 
on the steps of the Lebanon Post Office at the corner of Eighth 
and Chestnut Streets. It was reported that a startled patrolman 
drew his gun as he approached the menacing object and held the 
animal at bay for a split second before the realization hit home. 

The biology department main- 
tained the Tyrone Biological 
Museum under the skylight in the 
middle of the third floor in the 
Administration Building, and 
Lenny became the centerpiece of 
the exhibit. 

No one has ever confessed publicly to this caper, but a few facts 
came to us through the grapevine. The watchman outside the 
museum door was too much of a challenge to ignore. It is said 
that a small group of daring "cat burglars" climbed stealthily to 
the roof of the Ad Building. They held one hardy volunteer by 
the heels and dangled him through the skylight into the 
museum. There he snatched what was within his grasp, the big- 
horned sheep head. It was then child's play to mount it on the 
roof of the heating plant. 

The students marked the end of the episode when Phi Lambda 
Sigma (Philo) held a "poverty dance" (Remember the Depres- 
sion?) celebrating "Tabby's" return to campus. 

There were at least two more kidnappings of Lenny in subse- 
quent years, but none achieved the drama of the original. As a 
souvenir, he was heavy and hard to conceal. He always came 
back none the worse for his travels. 

Dr. Martin, who returned to Sierra Leone in 1985, said, "I 
staved in a modern eight-storv hotel built where I shot leopards in 
the 1920's, and we flew over the interior where we had research- 
ed on foot trails." 

Lenny now stands defiantly in the Snack Bar of the College 
Center in a handsome glass cage, a gift from the Palmyra Rotary 

One may fancy that he also dreams of those wild and free 
days in the jungle.

Favorable Report on 
Recent Grads 

Dave Evans, career planning and place- 
ment office, reported some impressive 
statistics on the Class of 1987 as of November 
25, 1987: of those eligible, 84.5 percent were 
employed and 14.9 percent were in advanced 
study for a 99.4 percent placement rate. 

Two Grads Write Definitive 
Account of 1913 Murder 

A 1913 Atlanta murder case which involved 
racial tension, anti-Semitism and a rebirth of 
the Ku Klux Klan was the subject of a new 
book "The Silent and the Damned," co- 
authored by Robert Seitz Frey and wife, 
Nancy Thompson-Frey, '77 that was released 
in January. 

The book is a definitive account of the 
April 27, 1913 murder of 13-vear-old Mary 
Phagan who was found in the basement of 
the National Pencil Factory in Atlanta. The 
girl had been assaulted, then strangled to

superintendent of the pencil factory where 
Mary Phagan worked, was arrested for her 

NBC aired a special mini-series "The 
Murder of Mary Phagan" on January 24 and 
26 which starred Jack Lemmon. 

Frank's trial took place in an atmosphere of 
anti-Semitism and racial tension. He was 
convicted and sentenced to death on the 
testimony of a black janitor, who himself was 
a suspect of the crime. After Georgia Gover- 
nor John Slaton commuted Frank's death 
sentence in 1915, a lynch mob abducted Frank 
from his jail cell and hung him from the 
branch of a tree. 

After the lynching came the rebirth of the 
Ku Klux Klan and the formation of te Anti- 
Defamation League of B'Nai B'Rith. A 
witness finally came forth in 1982 and gave 
new evidence on the murder that he had 
withheld for almost 70 years. Four years later, 
Frank was formally exonerated of the crime 
by the Georgia State Board of Pardons and 

The tense atmosphere that surrounded ths 
event is vividly recalled in the Frey's account.

Alumni News Continued 

Coming Home To LVC 

In 1987 manv graduates returned to the 
Lebanon Valley for reunions with friends 
made during their college years. For some, it 
was an on-campus reunion during Alumni 
Weekend or Homecoming. For others— like 
the "Consery Class of 1947"— it was an off- 
campus reunion. 

The Conservatory ('47) 

August 1987 Lancaster, PA 
Reported bv organizers Harold and Evelyn 
Spitler Wild and Paul and Sara Schott Fidler. 
"It seems altogether fitting and proper to 
recognize here the 'Conserv' Seniors who 
have exhibited so fine a feeling of unity, with 
plenty of originality, superb enthusiasm, and 
a vim and vigor admired bv all. Besides be- 
ing adequate performers in the 'Conserv,' 
they had numerous 'get-togethers,' most 
outstanding of which was their four-day trip 
to New York City." 

-The Quittapahilla 1948 

That feeling of unity and togetherness has 
prevailed and intensified through the forty 
vears since our graduation. And it has 
resulted in many reunions, particularly in re- 
cent years. The most recent reunion took 
place last August. Classmembers and their 
spouses met in Lancaster's First United 
Methodist Church where they renewed 
friendships and shared reminiscences before 
going through a vigorous choir rehearsal 
directed by Paul Fisher. The rehearsal was in 
preparation for their part in the worship ser- 
vice to be held the next day. 

The music provided by the class during the 
Sunday morning worship service at First 
United Methodist Church included a solo bv 
J. Ross Albert, worship responses and two 
anthems. But the most meaningful and emo- 
tional aspect of the two-dav reunion was the 
singing of the benediction always used by the 
LVC Glee Club, "The Lord Bless You" and 
Keep You" by Peter Lutkin. 

A banquet at the new Willow Valley Con- 
ference Center south of Lancaster was another 
feature of the reunion. The program included 
a mind-bending trivia quiz (administered bv 
Harold Wild) on the extra-curricular activities 
of classmembers during their senior year, an 
inspirational talk by John Rauch, husband of 
Betty June Gingrich Rauch, and a time of 
silence in memory of deceased classmembers 
Kenneth Fidler, Mildred Emerick Humphrey 
and J. Richard Phillips. 

Attending the reunion were: J. Ross Albert, 
Kate Albert Heckard, Betty Jean Butt Fiorello, 
Carl Derr, Helen Dickel Sandrock, Gladys 
Flinchbaugh Slenker, Betty June Gingrich 
Rauch, Richard Immler, Nancv Johns 
Nevins, Barbara Kolb Beittel, Wayne L. 
Mowrey, Marian Schade Stauffer, Arlene 
Schlosser Keller and Franklin Unger. 

Elementary Education 

Homecoming '87 
Blair Music Center 

The elementary education department has 
been holding alumni open houses since 1964. 
June Herr, associate professor emerita, has 
been the coordinator of these get-togethers 
and continues to correspond with each 
graduate. This year 35 graduates from New 
Jersey, Maryland and Pennsylvania attended 
the Homecoming Open House and another 
54 (from Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey, 
Colorado, Florida, Rhode Island, and 
Georgia) sent letters and cards expressing 
regrets in not being able to attend and thanks 
to June Herr for her faithful correspondence 
through the years. Manv graduates credit 
LVC and June Herr for success and satisfac- 
tion in their careers. 

Math Department Reunion 

Homecoming '87 at Hearsey's 

More than eighty people attended the math 
department open house at the home of Pro- 
fessor Bryan Hearsev following the 
Homecoming game between Susquehanna 
and LVC. Included were approximately forty 
graduates of the department and six mem- 
bers of the mathematical sciences faculty. 

A similar event is planned for next year. 

June Herr, (seated right), elementary education associate professor emerita, visits with a 
former student, Margaret Weinert Kramer '63, in Kramer's Yardley, PA home. Mrs. Kramer is

devastated Harrisburg in 1972 and left many 
elderly persons helpless, Grass helped con- 
ceive the "Jewish Meals on Wheels" cam- 
paign to provide senior citizens with food 
meeting Jewish dietary laws. The program 
was such a success that it has been made a 
permanent service of the United Jewish

Sports Center Opened 
February 19 

The Edward H. Arnold Sports Center, 
under construction since April, 1987, opened 
February 19 for students and college staff. 

The Center will primarily be used for 
recreational and intramural purposes for the 
student body as well as intercollegiate 
volleyball competition. 

The main section of the building contains 
interchangeable basketball, volleyball and ten- 
nis courts surrounded by a 200-meter track. It 
also will house offices, a second-floor obser- 
vation deck and a concession stand. Most of 
the college's intercollegiate teams will con- 
tinue to use the Lynch Gymnasium. 

A feature story on the facility will run in 
the upcoming Fall issue of The Valley. 

Three LVC studenLs immediately took advantage of the 
new 200-meter indoor track in the Arnold Sports Center 
arena The interior includes space for basketball, tennis 
and volleyball. 



Former LVC president Arthur L Peterson returned to campus to take the first lap in the new pool during the brief opening 
ceremony held for students and college employees.

LVC in Top Ten Percent 

LVC ranked 82 of 1200 of the nation's liberal 
arts colleges producing graduates who earn 
the doctoral degree. The rankings were 
released recently in a study by Todd C. Han- 
son of Randolph-Macon College, Ashland, 

"Over the long term, the fact that a relative- 
ly large proportion of a college's graduates 
receive the doctoral degree suggests that the 
college has established a mutually reinforcing 
pattern of standards, expectations and 
achievement bevond the ordinary," he 

The studv focused on the time periods 
1920-80 and 1970-80.

Unusual Quartet Founded 
at LVC 

The Quartet/Die Posaunen, the first trom- 
bone quartet-in-residence at an American col- 
lege or university, gave its premier perfor- 
mance on Monday, February 15 in Lutz Hall 
of the Blair Music Center on campus. 

"With the exception of the 1930's and 1940's 
Big Band sound made famous by Tommy 
Dorsey and Glenn Miller, the trombone in 
modern times is more or less identified as an 
accompanying instrument by the general au- 
dience," said James A. Erdman, II, LVC ad- 
junct instructor in music and founder of 
Quartet/Die Posaunen. 

"Audiences coming to hear us will find 
many pleasant surprises," he added. 

Along with Erdman, members of Quartet/ 
Die Posaunen are: Ronald J. Garman, tenor 
and alto trombone, who attended LVC; 
Robert H. Hearson, tenor trombone, and 
LVC's director of bands and assistant pro- 
fessor of music and music education; and 
Stephen E. Sniffer, bass trombonist, a self- 
emploved musician in South Central Penn- 
sylvania and former LVC student. 

All four gentlemen are members of the In- 
ternational Trombone Association.

O'Donnell Recognition 

Approximately 45 colleagues, current and 
former students gathered the evening of 
LVC's Homecoming to honor Dr. Agnes 
O'Donnell on the occasion of her retirement 
from the full-time faculty. 

Alumni representing all three decades dur- 
ing which she taught renewed acquaintances 
and reminisced with their former teacher and 
friend during a reception and dinner. 

During the brief after-dinner program, Dr. 
O'Donnell heard excerpts of tribute from her 
former students and a mini-poetry reading 

by English professors Arthur Ford and Philip 
Billings. Dr. Ford recounted Dr. O'Donnell's 
career in her beloved heroic couplets, while 
Dr. Billings recited a Blues-inspired tribute in 
"cowardly quartets." 

The program ended with comments by Dr. 
O'Donnell, who described the changes she 
has observed in the students and the campus 
during the past 26 years. She closed her 
remarks bv thanking all those who helped 
establish the O'Donnell Literature Scholar- 
ship Fund, adding that she sees "this 
scholarship not as a personal tribute but as a 
bridge from past students to future students." 

The $100 award will go to a deserving 
English major each year. 

Contributions to the O'Donnell Literature 
Scholarship Fund sent to the Office of Ad- 
vancement Lebanon Valley College, PA 17003. 
Checks should be made payable to "Lebanon 
Vallev College" and carrv the designation 
"O'Donnell Literature Scholarship Fund." 

Compact Discs Bring Fresh 
Sound To Campus 

After consultation with the Music Depart- 
ment this past summer, the library decided to 
discontinue expanding the traditional album 
(33 V3) collection and to begin acquiring com- 
pact disc recordings for faculty, administra- 
tion and staff use. 

Several factors played an important role in 
this decision. The library's listening equip- 
ment was obsolete and wearing out; space in 
the album collection was becoming critically 
short; and sound quality of music on com- 
pact discs is unquestionably higher in quality 
than that of albums. 

Fifteen classical music compact discs were 
purchased along with two new compact disc 
players. Response, thus far, has been strong, 
circulation has been heavy and feedback 
from students, faculty and administration 
has been positive. 

Chemistry Department 
Receives NSF Grant 

A 526,000 grant from the College Science 
Instrumentation Program of the National 
Science Foundation (NSF-CSIP) will enable 
LVC to train its students in the new and 
rapidly advancing areas of recombinant DNA 
research and gene cloning. 

The NSF-CSIP grant is the second to be 
awarded to LVC this year. The Chemistry 
Department received a $23-thousand grant in 
May, 1987, to support the acquisition of a gas 
chromatograph/mass spectrometer for use in 
analytical and organic chemistry laboratories. 

The grant was awarded to LVC as the result 
of a proposal submitted by Dr. Sidney 
Pollack, associate professor of biology, and Dr. 
Owen A. Moe, Jr., professor of chemistry, en- 
titled "Ultracentrifuge and Electrophoresis 
Equipment For Undergraduate Instruction In 
Genetics, Molecular Biology And 

The proposal outlined a project to develop a 
new senior-level laboratory course in 
molecular biology, and to strengthen existing 
laboratory courses in biochemistry and 
genetics. The funds granted by NSF-CSIP 
will be applied to the purchase of a 
preparative ultracentrifuge, a microcen- 
trifuge, a biological hazards hood and equip- 
ment for electrophoresis. 

The acquisition of this state-of-the-art in- 
strumentation will allow science students at 
LVC to carry out new and sophisticated ex- 
periments dealing with the preparation, 
purification and analysis of recombinant 
DNA, and to develop new experiments in the 
areas of protein and lipid chemistry. 

LVC is one of 40 small, private liberal arts 
colleges nationwide that received two or more 
instrumentation grants from NSF-CSIP in 

Apartheid Addressed 
On Campus By Native 
South African 

"If a ladder falls, the man at the top will 
hurt more than the man at the bottom. The 
blacks will be hurt with sanctions, but the 
white ruling minority is at the top." 

And with that, Jennifer Davis, a white 
economist who fled her native South Africa 
in 1966, called for more sanctions from the 
United States government during her 
"Challenge To Apartheid" address in 
November at LVC, sponsored by the Student 

An expert on political and economic 
developments in South Africa, U.S. policy 
and investment, Davis has worked to inter- 
pret the liberation struggle to the American 
people and expose the shortcomings of 
United States policy. 

"We've tested the theory that if there is 
economic growth in South Africa, apartheid 
will fade away. We told you it doesn't work. 
Now we want to try something else," said 

"Under this system, if your skin is black 
you cannot vote, choose your work or where 
you live," continued Davis. 

Davis also cited American television for not 
reporting the continued torture under the 
white minority rule. She also charged that 
the Reagan administration should enact full 
sanctions against her country instead of the 
current policy of "constructive engagement." 

"When people are being tortured under an 
unjust rule, they need and want immediate 
change," said Davis. "Patience is easier when 
you are removed from the situation." 

Davis has travelled widely in the front line 
states of South Africa, including Angola, 
Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Tanzania. She 
also has provided expert testimony before 
Committees of Congress, state and municipal 
legislatures and the United Nations. In addi- 
tion, Davis has presented extensive research 
documents for international forums in 
Europe, Africa and Latin America.

Computer System Up 
And Running 

The $225,000 awarded LVC as a result of 
the Whitaker Foundation grant has allowed 
the College to substantially improve its com- 
puting resources. 

The purchase of a DEC VAX-8200 gives 
students the opportunity to use a "state-of- 
the-art" operating system. They are now able 
to experiment freely with over 200 operating 
system commands, something which was not 

possible when administrative and academic 
users shared one machine. Four dial-in 
modems are being used by off-campus day 
students, faculty and continuing education 
students who have microcomputers either at 
home or in their offices. Also, an electronic 
mail and phone package allows students and 
faculty to communicate virtually 24 hours a 

The new technology also gives students the 
available memory and disk space to write 
larger programs and data files. Students ex- 
periment with inter-program communica- 
tion, subprocesses, and directory structures. 
An on-line help facility includes detailed 
references for all operating system com- 
mands. One of the most frequently talked- 
about benefits is the increased speed that 
students have available when developing and 
debugging programs. A future project in- 
cludes a dial-in bulletin board to be im- 
plemented and maintained bv LVC students 
tor the community. 

The addition of Zenith PC's to the college's 
computing labs allows students to com- 
municate and share data with the VAX. 
Thanks to Dr. Mike Fry, assistant professor of 
mathematical sciences, who wrote a utility to 
transfer data between the \AX and IBM's and 
compatibles, uploading and downloading 
data is fairly painless. A student with a PC at 
home or in the dorm may work on 
assignments there, then transmit the assign- 
ment via phone line to the main system 
where the professor may examine and res- 
pond via electronic mail. The rudiments are 
in place, and the students are eager to build a 
fully integrated, networked campus. 

Students Study Vietnam in 
First-Ever Course 

Last semester, 40 students enrolled in a 
course entitled "Special Problem: The Viet- 
nam Experience." This course, taught for the 
first time at LVC, explored the traumatic ef- 
fects of a war that was, and still is today, both 
controversial and highly debated in our socie- 
ty and government. 

Dr. Eugene Brown, associate professor of 
political science and Vietnam veteran, com- 
mented recently on the students' interest. 

"I have to remind myself that these stu- 
dents were babies when this war occurred," 
said Brown. "Students today are probably 
more open-minded than the generation that 
lived with the war." 

Brown split the class into two segments. 
The first half of the semester was devoted to 
studying the historical context including how 
the U.S. became involved, the controversy it 
caused in the U.S. and the domestic pressure 
which forced the U.S. to withdraw from the 

The second half of the course discussed the 
effect the war continues to have on our coun- 
try and those who dodged the draft. 

"I have never seen this kind of 
enthusiastic student response to an 
academic course in all my fourteen 
years of teaching." 
— Dr. Eugene Brown, associate 
professor of political science. 

"I didn't have an understanding of what 
the Vietnam veteran went through and that 
was a major reason I enrolled in the class," 
said Nikolaz Rael, a sophomore from 
Clayton, New Jersey. 

The class also had the opportunity to hear 
guest speakers including Ann Thompson, 
now employed at Lebanon's Veterans Ad- 
ministration Hospital who served as an Ar- 
my nurse; Lew Cooke, LVC athletic equip- 
ment manager and a combat infantryman; 
counselors from Harrisburg's Veterans 
Center; and Donald Bailey, Pennsylvania 
State Auditor General and Vietnam veteran. 

Students also were required to interview 
someone who went through the Vietnam 

"I interviewed a Vietnam war widow who 
lost her husband five weeks before his 
discharge," said Melissa Huffman, a senior 
English philosophy major from Lebanon, PA. 

"She, like her husband, was very patriotic, 
and despite her loss, she remains so today. 
However, following the death of her husband, 
she went through a year of bitterness and 
directed her anger toward the world and 
God. To this day, she cannot watch anything 
related to the war, but now maintains a very 
strong faith in God. For me, the personal in- 
terview put a human face on what was 
presented by written word in our textbooks." 

Spirit of Berlin at LVC 

Berlin's 750th anniversary as a city was 
celebrated in September with displays, films 
and a speaker. 

The highlight of the nine-day program, 
coordinated by Dr. James Scott, professor of 
German, and students from Teutonia Vallis, 
LVC's German Club, was a presentation given 
bv Dr. Rado Pribic, associate professor of Ger- 
man at Lafayette College, entitled, "25 Years 
Of The Berlin Wall." 

"It is appropriate to focus on Berlin as it 
celebrates 750 years of existence because 
Berlin is more than just a city," said Scott. 
"Berlin is the keystone of great power in- 
terests in Europe. The city and its Wall have 
become a symbol of the world we live in." 

As part of the celebration, a full scale 
model of a section of the Berlin Wall was con- 
structed and displayed outside the Mund 
College Center, print information illustrating 
the history of the city was displayed in the 
Mund lobby, and films from the German 
Reich as well as from contemporary East and 
West Germany were shown.

LDI Holds Successful 

Supervisors, managers and small-business 
owners learned to be more effective leaders 
this past fall through seminars offered by 
LVC's Leadership Development Institute 

"Leaders are people who can get people to 
accomplish tasks and be happy," said Barb 
Denison, director of the Leadership Develop- 
ment Institute. "The Institute's whole 
philosophy is to educate people for life and 

Six one-day seminars from September to 
November dealt with helping participants im- 
prove their interpersonal and productivity, 
such as leadership survival skills, interper- 
sonal communication skills, motivating 
others, influencing other's behavior, improv- 
ing group skills and creative problem solving 
and decision making. 

In the spring semester, LVC's Leadership 
Development Institute will offer eight one-dav 
workshops: "Leadership Survival Skills" 
(March 1); "Motivating Others" (March 8); 
"Improving Your Written, Spoken and 
Nonverbal Communication (March 22); "In-

YSI Program Continues To 
Expand: Scholarship 
Implemented In This Year's 


The Youth Scholars Institute will enter its 
14th year this summer with six new pro- 
grams and a $1,000 scholarship applicable to 
LVC for eligible students who have par- 
ticipated in YSI and wish to enroll at the Col- 
lege in the 1988 fall semester. 

To be eligible for the scholarship, the par- 
ticipating students must be recommended by 
their appropriate high school faculty member. 
The scholarships are not automatic since the 
student must demonstrate promise through 
successful participation in the summer pro- 
gram. Minimum qualifications are the same 
as those for the leadership program, namelv, 
ranking in the top 40% of the high school 
graduating class; demonstrated academic 
leadership; and combined SAT scores of 1,000 
or higher. Any student who is offered a YSI 
merit scholarship may still compete for a 

leadership award or any other scholarship. 
However, only one award will be given. 

Additional programs to be added to the 
program include: Management: Business 
Law; Political Science: The Model Senate; 
Sociology and Social Service; Spanish; 
Psychobiology; and Sound Recording 
Technology. These new programs bring the 
total course offering to 22 subjects. 

YSI is a unique program that was estab- 
lished in 1975 by the Chemistry Department 
as a means of exposing promising voung 
people to chemistry as a potential career. YSI 
continued to grow over the vears and now en- 
compasses several academic disciplines. Dr. 
Dale Erskine, assistant professor of biologv, 
became director of the Institute in 1984 and is 
responsible for coordinating the academic and 
social activities. In 1987, YSI attracted 240 
high school students interested in the 
sciences, mathematics and computer sciences 
and humanities and music. 

Participants spend one week on campus 
receiving intense training in an area of their 
choosing. They work closely with highly 
qualified faculty and undergraduate student 
assistants in each field and interact with the 
faculty outside of the classroom or laboratory. 
The interaction with current students can be 
an invaluable experience. Among past 
assistants are an NSF-Fulbright Fellowship 
winner, three current medical students, an 
NSF Predoctoral Fellow at Memorial-Sloan 
Kettering Cancer Research Center, and 
graduate students at MIT, Johns Hopkins, 
Cornell and the University of Virginia. 

Coke VP Discusses 

by Rob Andrew, The Quad 

YVillem Westerman, Vice-President of Inter- 
national Marketing for the Coca-Cola Cor- 
poration, discussed marketing Coke around 
the world in the Little Theater on Tuesday, 
February 16. 

Westerman lectured on the diverse 
management structures and techniques used 
to market a single "non-essential" product 
consistently in one hundred and fifty-five dif- 
ferent countries. Westerman, who works out 
of Atlanta, Georgia, began his career with 
Coke in 1951 in England as a route salesman. 

Coke, a nine billion dollar company 
holding forty percent of the soft drink market 
and employing 25,000 people, relies heavily 
on advertising to sell its products. Westerman 
concluded by showing several different ver- 
sions of popular commercials as they were 
adapted to be shown in different countries.

Gifts That Keep 
On Giving 

As D7C strives to maintain its enviable 
position in higher education, gift and grant 
income is essential both for the current 
program and for the future well-being of 
the institution. 

The current program is supported large- 
ly by student tuition and the Annual Fund 
for Lebanon Valley College. It is worth 
noting that presently the yearly tuition of 
$7,950 covers only about 80% of the actual 
cost to educate each student. (Room, board 
and fees of $3,450 are not included in this 

Future generations of young men and 
women who will elect to study in our col- 
legiate community must be considered to- 
day, as well. In recent months a number of 
alumni and friends have responded to this 
challenge in a variety of ways. LVC is 
strengthened measurably by these 

Each of the following examples reflects 
the donor's most opportune means of 
making a gift to Lebanon Valley College. 
From among the many choices for a 
charitable gift, our alumni and friends 
selected that method of supporting our in- 
stitution which would have the greatest 
educational impact without eroding 
needed personal resources. There are other 
means, also, for originating charitable con- 
tributions and we hope the generosity 
shown by these several different examples 
will prompt more of our constituents to 
consider a "Gift that Keeps on Giving." 

A meaningful bequest by the late 
George E. Hollenbaugh of Middletown has 
created the Mae Reider Hollenbaugh 
Presidential Leadership Scholarships in 
Chemistry and Biology. Each award was 
established with a principal sum in excess 
of $50,000. 

The estate of Kathryn B. Engle '33 of 
Hummelstown provided an endowed fund 
of more than $30,000 with the income to 
be utilized as needed. 

Miss Beulah Harvey established a very 
generous endowed scholarship in memory 
of her sister, Rebecca S. Harvey, to 
recognize a deserving senior student who 
requires financial assistance to complete his 
or her education . 

The Honorable John Walter '53 and 
Mrs. Patricia Lutz Walter '57 became 
members of the Honors Society when they 
named Lebanon Valley College the bene- 
ficiary of a significant life insurance policy; 
the proceeds are to be used where they 

will be most advantageous to the 

A gift from Mrs. Esther Hughes 
Kelchner '25 endowed a discretionary 
fund for the Vice President and Dean of 
the Faculty; this income will support in 
perpetuity those meaningful programs 
and projects for students and faculty which 
are considered essential but which were 

Two book funds have been endowed by 
Dr. Elizabeth K. Weisburger '44, President 
of the Board of Trustees, as follows: 

Lottie J. Snavely Book Fund in English 
and Communications; Marion Snavely 
Ellenberger Book Fund in History. 

Mrs. Virginia C. Miller, mother of an 
alumna, became a member of our Honors 
Society when she named LVC in her will to 
receive a sizable bequest to endow the 
Reverend Joseph H. Miller Scholarship. 
This income will be awarded a student 
with an interest in sacred music. 

A Unitrust Agreement with Dr. and 
Mrs. Allan W. Mund brought a large prin- 
cipal sum to the College which will pro- 
vide quarterly payments to the donors dur- 
ing their lifetimes. When the agreement 
matures, Lebanon Valley College will 
utilize the principal investment to further 
underwrite the Allan W. Mund, Jr. 
Scholarship. Also participating in the gift 
were Dr. and Mrs. Richard G. Mund and 
Mr. and Mrs. Brian R. Mund. This 
scholarship will be one of the largest in the 
College's endowment. 

The several commitments mentioned 
here total more than $533,000 for the 
future well-being of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege. Additional alumni and friends also 
are providing for the institution through a 
host of methods. The 125th Anniversary 
Campaign is contributing further en- 
dowments to the College's investment port- 
folio. These successes are noteworthy and 
we are grateful to the many individuals 
who have expressed in a tangible way their 
belief in the future of Lebanon Valley

Faculty Profile 

Markowicz Accepts 
New Position 

After 17 years in the English department, 
Dr. Leon E. Markowicz has accepted a new 
challenge— he is the first and only full-time 
professor of leadership studies at LVC. 

"The leadership appointment is an oppor- 
tunity to grow personally, develop profes- 
sionally, and contribute both to the campus 
and the community" said Markowicz. "I see 
leadership studies as a way to draw all the 
disciplines on campus together and to con- 
nect LVC to the 'outside world.' " 

The leadership position involves teaching 
the general education leadership requirement 
and working closely with the Presidential 
Leadership Award recipients (students who 
have been awarded S5,000 a year based on 
leadership achievement, academic achieve- 
ment, and an on-campus interview). 

Markowicz is one of several professors 
teaching: "LC 100: Theories and Applications 
of the Leadership Process." This course, man- 
datory for all entering students, focuses on 
the concepts and theories of leaders and 
followers, the interaction between leaders and 
followers, the ethics and values of leadership, 
and communication. 

Markowicz is also one of several professors 
teaching "LC 350: Advanced Leadership 
Studies"— a mandatory course for all 
Presidential Leadership Award recipients. 
Lastly, these students must take "LC 400: 
Leadership Internship," which is supervised 
by Markowicz. 

What has changed for the former professor 
of "Management Communications?" 

His syllabus certainly hasn't changed 
much. With the exception of a few new 
texts— Thomas Gordon's Leader Effectiveness 
Training, Barbara Kellerman's Political 
Leadership, and Richard Solomon's Ethics— 
his leadership courses still include The New 
York Times and Shakespeare. Students must 
also bring a calendar to all classes. 

"I still use the same techniques and 
philosophy. Students in my leadership classes 
write regularly, participate daily, and give 
videotaped oral presentations," Markowicz 
said. "I strive to teach students to teach 

Although his goal is the same, the subject 
matter he covers isn't. "I need to become 
familiar with new areas such as sociology 
and psychology and to connect literature and 
communications with Leadership Studies." 
"This is a challenge that I find very 

"I want to make this the best course a stu- 
dent takes at LVC," added Markowicz. "I 
hope each student grows as an individual 
and as a member of society." 

Dr. Michael Asken, adjunct associate pro-

Actuarial Science: 

A Special Program at LVC 

"An actuary is a business professional 
who uses mathematical skills to define, 
analyze and solve financial and social 
problems." This quote, from the Society of 
Actuaries/Casualty Actuarial Society 
booklet The Actuarial Profession, 
highlights two key functions of the ac- 
tuary. An actuary is a businessperson, 
usually a member of a management team, 
who uses mathematical training and ex- 
perience to solve problems. 

Professional status within the actuarial 
profession is attained through completion 
of a series of rigorous examinations ad- 
ministered by the Society of Actuaries and 
the Casualty Actuarial Society. Some of 
these exams may be completed while the 
student is in college, but most are com- 
pleted through self-study after 

LVC has one of the premier actuarial 
science programs in the United States. The 
opportunities provided by this outstanding 
program are increasingly being recognized 
by high school guidance counselors, 
mathematics teachers and students. 

A special feature of the LVC actuarial 
science program is its existence within the 
liberal arts environment of College. The 
combination of mathematics and business 
makes the actuarial profession an exciting 
opportunity for mathematically talented 

Among the graduates of LVCs actuarial 
science program are the Chief Actuary of 
the State of Delaware, the President of 
Prudential /Sony in Japan, the President of 
Actex, the leading actuarial publishing 
house, and two partners in the Harrisburg 
pension consulting firm Conrad M. Siegel, 
Inc. Other graduates of LVC are employed 
in Philadelphia, Hartford, New York City, 
Washington, Chicago, Baltimore, and other 
locations in the East and Midwest.

One of Our Nation's Best 

According to an article entitled "Get- 
ting High On Study" in the October 26, 
1987 issue of U.S. News & World 
Report, Lebanon Valley College ranks 
among the 125 best liberal arts colleges 
in the country. 

The article, based on a survey con- 
ducted with college presidents, stated, 
"the 125 schools making up this 
category in the U.S. News survey offer 
small classes with lots of individual at- 
tention, a first-rate faculty committed to 
teaching undergraduates, plus an 
unswerving belief that courses in the 
arts, sciences and humanities best 
prepare students for life— and work."
