John A. Synodinos 
Elected 15th President 



The Board of Trustees elected John A. Synodinos, Lancaster, 
PA, as the fifteenth President of the College on Friday, May 6. 
He begins his new duties on July 1. 

Alumnus Thomas Reinhart, chairman of the presidential 
search committee, said, "Synodinos was selected from among 
200 candidates because of his strength in institutional ad- 
vancement, especially development, admissions, alumni rela- 
tions, and public relations." 

Svnodinos, who for the past four years has headed his own 
educational consulting firm, John A. Synodinos and 
Associates, takes over as the College prepares for its 125th an- 
niversary celebration in 1991. 

Asked during a recent press conference why he gave up his 
educational consulting business to become President, 
Synodinos said, "I fell in love with LVC, its people, its spirit." 

Raising the endowment is at the top of his list. 

"I'd love to see it at $30 million or $40 million," he 
told reporters. 

After endowment, Synodinos' other goals include: improv- 
ing the visibility of the College, enhancing alumni relations, 
improving faculty salaries, creating a coherent campus plan 
and technological improvements, and keeping student quality 
intact as the college weathers demographic changes in the 
next decade. 

In 1984, Synodinos ended a 16-year career as an ad- 
ministrator at Franklin & Marshall College, Lancaster, and 
began his own educational consulting firm. 

He served as associate director of development at F&M from 
1968 to 1971, worked for a short time as administrative assis- 
tant to the F&M president, then was vice-president of 
development until 1984. 

Previously, from 1960 to 1968, he served in various 
administrative posts at The Johns Hopkins University 
in Baltimore. 

An active member of the Council for the Advancement and 
Support of Education (CASE), Synodinos teaches in the sum- 
mer program of Carnegie-Mellon University's College 
Management Program. 

He holds a master's degree in education from Temple 
University and a bachelor of science degree in history from 
Loyola College, where he graduated cum laude. 

Additionally, he holds a certificate from the Institute for 
Education Management at the Harvard Business School. 

He was selected an Outstanding Educator of America 
in 1973. 

At home on the stage, Synodinos has had dramatic parts in 
many productions in the central Pennsylvania region over the 
years. Until his recent appointment, he was president of both 
the Board of Arts Council in Lancaster and the Schubert 
Festival Foundation, and was Chairman of the Board of the 
Pennsylvania School of the Arts, Lancaster. He is a board 
member of Music at Gretna. 

Synodinos and his wife, Glenda, currently reside at 1824 
Edenwald Lane, Lancaster, and will move into the president's 
house sometime this summer. They are the parents of two 
daughters, Jean Synodinos and Victoria Synodinos- 
Gertenbach.

Lone Ranger: Strohman 
embodies the theme to 
jazz fans 



by Harriet Wesley 
For the Patriot-News 



Think of "The William Tell Overture." Who comes to mind? 
If you answered: "The Lone Ranger," you aren't an area jazz 
fan. Jazzers would respond: "Tom Strohman." 

Strohman has been sailing through that Lone Ranger radio 
theme on flute for almost 30 years. And he's only 35 now. 

The Lebanon resident learned the musical work while in 
elementary school, plaved the piece well enough to win area 
talent competitions galore and finally, at the ripe age of 8, 
plaved it while a contestant on the "Ted Mack Amateur Hour" 
in New York City. 

Strohman has come a long way since then. His musical bent 
began at age 6, when his father started teaching him how to 
play the piccolo. Flute was next and then came saxophones, 
clarinets and assorted flutes. Keyboards came later. So 
did violin. 

Strohman's parents were both music teachers and per- 
formers. His mother taught vocal music in the Lebanon 
elementarv schools. Dad was an instrumental teacher and 
junior high school band director in Lebanon. 

So, coming to music was natural for Strohman. But it wasn't 
until high school that he chose music as a vocation. By then 
he had packed away his violin and concentrated on all the in- 
stuments in the woodwind family. 

He played in the school marching band, concert band, or- 
chestra and jazz band as well as rock bands for a well-rounded 
musical experience. Then came Lebanon Valley College and 



A lot of milestones were reached 
by Strohman while he was in 
college. 



more music, culminating in his being tapped for student band 
director of that institution's jazz band in his senior year. 

During those college years Strohman worked with New 
York jazzman Walt Levinsky, an alumnus of Lebanon Valley 
College who returned to perform there numerous times. Also 
during that time, Strohman studied under Frank Stachow, 
head of the college music department. 

Of Stachow, Strohman said: "He was a walking en- 
cyclopedia of music — an open teacher who encouraged a 
sense of curiosity about music. He knew where a student 
needed help but also knew when to stay quiet so that the stu- 
dent could create on his own." Strohman told that Stachow 
once drove all the way to Pittsburgh so that Strohman could 
perform one solo number. After the song, they drove straight 
back to Lebanon. 



As Strohman began developing an original style he listened 
to a wide assortment of instrumentalists, Ray Anthony and 
Harry James topping that early list. Strohman admired James 
for his blues solos in the low register of the trumpet, describ- 
ing them as "airy." 

Strohman's parents took him to see plenty of jazz artists 
while he was young — Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, Sal Nistico 
and Richie Cole included. Then, the budding artist studied 
the performances of Buddy Rich, Cannonball Adderley, John 
Coltrane and Sonnv Rollins. Now, he includes Phil Woods 
and Michael Brecker as favorites. 



Strohman's newest accomplish- 
ment is having been named direc- 
tor of the Lebanon Valley College 
Jazz Band - the second time 
around. 



Lots of milestones were reached by Strohman while he was 
in college. Along with bassist Jim Miller, he formed the 
popular quartet, Third Stream. At the Quinnipiac Inter- 
collegiate Jazz Festival he garnered personal awards two years 
running — Best Saxophone Soloist in 1973 and the Louis Arm- 
strong Outstanding Musician in 1974. 

Over the years Strohman has performed with Buddy 
DeFranco, Johnny Coles, Ira Sullivan, Dave Stahl, Al Martino, 
Sonny and Cher, Eddie Fisher, Delia Reese, Patti Page, Steven 
Gilmore, Al Grey, Derek Smith, Steve LaSpina and 
Bobby Rosengarden. 

With Third Stream he has shared the bill with Herbie Han- 
cock, Stanley Turrentine, Chick Corea, Tower of Power, Jeff 
Beck, Barney Kessel, Livingston Taylor, Deodato, Spyro Gyra 
and others. 

Also with Third Stream, Strohman recorded the single, 'In 
Remembrance" in 1979. The next year the band released its 
first album, "Gettih It Together." Strohman was joined by a 
dozen other jazzmen in 1982 for the album, "Just Friends." Its 
success led to the follow-up LP "Just Friends Again" the 
next year. 

Third Stream recorded a smash hit Christmas tape that has 
sold out so many times that its master tape has worn thin. It 
will be re-recorded in time for the next holiday season. A com- 
panion tape will also be recorded that will feature a new 
assortment of Christmas songs and carols. 



The Valley 4 




Jim Miller, bass, Tom Strohman, woodwinds and keyboards, Jim Easton, guitar and synthesizer and John Peiler, drums, comprise the popular jazz quartet Third Stream. 



What does the future hold for Strohman? "Probably more of 
the same," he said. "Third Stream isn't one-dimensional. We 
play everything for everybody. That's why we've become such 
a popular commercial band that doesn't have to look 
for work." 

Strohman also spoke of his love of teaching. "I have begin- 
ner kids, struggling young students and retired adults — 
novice through advanced," he said. 

When asked why he stays in the area instead of auditioning 
for the big time, Strohman said that he has turned down 
several offers, including one to travel with singer Judy Collins. 
"I like it here," he said. "If I moved to New York, I would have 
to specialize in two instruments. That's the common studio 
pattern. Since I love all the instruments I play, I don't know 
which ones I'd be willing to give up." 



The jazzman also said that if he went on the road for short- 
term gigs averaging three months, he would relinquish 
regular engagements he now enjoys playing free-lance and 
with Third Stream. "The band would have to replace me in 
my absence." 

And so, Tom Strohman continues to live in Lebanon with 
his wife Sherie, who teaches musical instruments in the 
Annville-Cleona elementary schools and is band director of 
the combined school band. 

Strohman's newest accomplishment is having been named 
director of the Lebanon Valley College Jazz Band — the second 
time around. Whereas the band used to be led by a student, it 
now boasts a professional who holds the baton.

The Valley Revisited 

by Stanley F. Imboden '55 



Lebanon Vallev Collegers baccalaureate was something of a 
"homecoming" for me. I'd not been to one of these chapel 
gatherings for seniors since 1955. That's the year I graduated 
among voung men and women who now proudly carry hap- 
py memories of "The Vallev"into communities near and far 
from Annville. 

Since that commencement day sent me out with a broad 
liberal arts education, I've always been thankful to Lebanon 
Vallev College where the church-supported curriculum still 
gives attention to yearnings of the soul as well as to the 
curiosity and freedom of the mind. I cherish many nostalgic 
recollections of the school and town, including people and 
places that probably make up the stories of other graduates 
as well. 

1955 was a time when LVC had lots of Korean War veterans. 
R.O.T.C. was popular. Lynch Gymnasium seemed brand new. 
May Pole ceremonies took place on the mid-campus green 
just before graduation time. The football team saw passes 
thrown to receivers by a quarterbacking classmate who's still 
around, Lou Sorrentino. The "Flying Dutchmen" had just 
come off big seasons in the NCAA basketball world. I vividly

and upper-classmates once more

with a hemp rope stretched across 
the muddy Quittapahilla.' 



remember seeing that unforgetable victory of ours against For- 
dham University at the big Palestra in "basketball city," 
Philadelphia. There were heros like Coach "Rinso" Marquette, 
Howie Landa, Herb Finkelstein and their outstanding team. 

Although students owned fewer automobiles then, cars 
were bigger with gobs of chrome. Chevies and Fords sprouted 
fender fins about skirted rear wheels with flashy spinners. 
The diamonds of argyle socks were seen with penny loafers, 
and our white suede shoes came with little pads of chalky 
powder to be handily used in keeping them decent but not 
too clean. Mine were more grey than white from walking and 
hitch-hiking everywhere until I bought my first car, a 1939 
Buick Eight with 122,000 miles on it. Up to that time I hitch- 
hiked Route 422 and borrowed rides as far as Womelsdorf 
and Robesonia. 

The Buick blew an engine gasket as Dr. Gustavus Adolphus 
Richie, our New Testament Greek professor, and I drove just 
north of Myerstown to play golf at an easy but picturesque 
course that had a barn in the middle of it. Prof. Richie's clubs 
still had wooden shafts, and the diminutive fellow's compact 
swing made him as accurate as Ben Hogan around the greens. 
For practical reasons I never played to beat him. I needed all 
the goodwill I could muster when it came time for class recita- 
tions on Cyrus the Persian. Those three years of Greek were

tediously measured by Dr. Richie's old gold watch, whose 
loud ticking resonated from his wooden desk, on which he 
always placed it. It was like a metronome counting down to 
the exam on aorist tenses that frightened all hell out of the 
nine preministerial students in our class. 

My "dorm" was the home of my grandparents, Albert and 
Elizabeth Beyerle, on Lancaster Street a block west of Lynch 
Gym and a half block north of the Washington Band Hall, 
from which Sousa could be heard all over town on summer 
rehearsal nights. In return for a good mattress, sunny study 
space and parking for mv Buick in back of the chicken house, 
I nursed an elderlv family member who died in the room next 
to mine during my senior year. 

The Beverles were the kind of relatives you always wanted 
to visit and everyone seemed to love. Grandma Beyerle made 



The Valley 6 



ends meet by taking in house curtains, hand-laundering, star- 
ching and stretching them onto huge wooden frames which 
we'd put on her sunny east porch until the curtains were dry 
and ready for rehanging. People who were fussy about cur- 
tains came to Lizzie's because she did things as if all labor had 
holiness within it. 

Grandpa worked for many years at the shoe factory in 
Palmyra and had one of the most productive gardens in Ann- 
ville. Spring and summer, people came from all over the 
county to get vegetables and especially his home-dried seeds 
from his famous "beefy" tomatoes, which seemingly weighed 
a couple of pounds and melted sweetly in one's mouth 
at suppertime. 

Warm evenings at the Beyerles would begin with the 
reading of The Lebanon Daily News, which always landed near 
the row of wooden rocking chairs on the long Victorian front 
porch. The Daily Neivs was special to me because as a 
youth growing up in Reading, I carried morning and evening 
papers that were in black print without the colorful red 
headlines like the folks around Lebanon were accustomed 
to seeing. 

As late as 1955, the Beyerles' wintertime suppers were 
always in the kitchen near a large coal stove, which I learned 
to regulate for overnight heating and morning toast making. 
We used long wire-handled forks to hold the bread over the 
coals, and I would finish eating my toast on my way to Pro- 
fessor Maud P. Lauglin's 8 a.m. class in European History 
upstairs on the southwest corner of the Administration 
Building. You had to be prepared to be called on in her class. 
I visited Professor Laughlin once after she became ill, and her 
personal word of encouragement for my "call to the ministry" 
far exceeded the value of all the academic credits I 
ever earned. 

During the 50's college expenses for most of us weren't easi- 
ly financed. Most of us never won scholarships or plugged in- 
to government loans. There weren't as many. We parlaved 
jobs, "moonlighting" hours and holiday sales positions 
together in enterprising ways. As a senior pre-theological stu- 
dent, I cared for two tiny churches in Womelsdorf and 
Robesonia with three services and Sunday School each week. 
During vacation I worked at Sears old store on "pre-mall" 
Cumberland Street in Lebanon, where before Christmas we'd 
assemble bicycles, wagons, trains and swing sets for people 
who in those days often used the "lay-away" plan. 



Mary and Frank (Af tomes) were 
always "mom" and "dad" to college 
youth who found a home away 
from home in "Hot Dog Frank's" 
restaurant. . . 



On days off I'd frequently head for Womelsdorf to see a girl 
named Diane. My choice of her for our thirty-three year mar- 
riage rested not only on her personality and good looks, but 
on the affection she grew up in at home. Persuasive, too, was 



the fact that her father, whose nickname was "Shiwer," was 
an admirable outdoorsman who'd take me trout fishing in the 
Swatara and Tulpehocken. We kept muskrat pelts in th base- 
ment, minnies in buckets in the "out-kitchen" and worms 
bedded in ice cream boxes in the refrigerator. To top it off, 
Diane's mother made the newspapers as a home-cooking 
whiz who excelled at Rabbit and Oyster Pie and used the 
magic of Crisco for perfect baking. Diane and I married just 
after my graduation from Lebanon Valley, and with all bills 
paid we left for our honeymoon with sixty-five bucks in 
our pockets. 

Occasionally I visit my parents' graves in Mt. Annville 
Cemetery, a few steps north of my alma mater. On a clear day 
I can see east to Eagle Peak beside Womelsdorf and west to the 
Hershey farmland on which my great-grandfather Imboden 
was born. To the south, the view reaches the iron-rock and 
deer-filled Furnace Hills where a year ago Diane and I built a 
woodsy home and often gather with our two sons and 
friends. Northward lie the Blue Mountains, the dominant and 
beautiful ridges paralleling this valley in which thousands of 
"Flying Dutchmen" like me have grown up, been educated 
and found happiness among the families we love and the 
work we do. 

When I last went to that green hillside cemetery, I 
remembered watching, as a twelve-year-old, long columns of 
World War II tanks rumbling past campus along with ranks of 
newly inducted Indiantown Gap soldiers on their way to Mt. 
Gretna for maneuvers. The tanks often tore up the streets and 
rattled the type out of its cases in the old-fashioned printshop 
on the corner of White Oak and Church Streets. From Mt. 
Gretna's hills I think one can still hear the echo of the guns 
warning the Axis adversaries that Americans were prepared 
to defend our freedom. 

On that day, I could also still hear the whistles of the "Five 
O'clock Hyer" and "The Queen of the Valley" speeding down 
the Annville straightaway. I was sure I heard the open- 
window sound of the LVC Glee Club, and turning westward, 
I imagined "beamed" freshmen and upper-classmates once 
more tug-chwarring for bragging rights with a hemp rope 
stretched across the muddy Quittapahilla. Looking down on 
the new Arnold Sports Center, I visualized my late father, 
"Liwy" Imboden, who had been a professional baseball scout 
and umpire, once again calling "balls and strikes" on "Rinso" 
and Hank Dijohnson. 

A few steps away I noticed a stone with a familiar name: 
Mary Aftosmes. Mary and Frank (who still resides in Ann- 
ville) were always "mom" and "dad" to college youth who 
found a home away from home in "Hot Dog Frank's" 
restaurant on Main Street and learned much from our "pro- 
fessor of studies in human nature." Frank is a Greek im- 
migrant, but typical of persons in college towns all over 
America, who have come to them, been born in them, studied 
or taught in them and made them happier places. Indeed, 
they constitute a roll international. 

Say just vott fer kind uf names are dos? 

Veil, let me see vonce: Aftosmes, Light, Fields, Struble, Fen- 
cil, Beyerle, Lewis, Ehrhart, McGill, Finkelstein, Marquette, 
Yeakel, Carmean, Retreivi, Uchida, Radanovic, Sorrentino, 
Kelly, Smith and, I guess Imboden, too. By golly, they're all 
Lebanon Valley names! All American names! And it has been 
a real blessing for us to celebrate their friendship once more.

Shank and Salam Receive 
Alumni Scholarship 

The Alumni Scholarship Committee of 
the Alumni Association met in March and 
awarded $1,000 tuition credit each to Tracy 
Shank '89 and Toni Salam '90. 

The scholarship is awarded on the basis 
of academic achievement, financial need, 
life and career goals, and a committee con- 
sensus that the recipient will become an 
outstanding LVC alumnus or alumna. 

"We had a very difficult time deciding 
which of the six candidates we interviewed 
should receive the award," said Jane 
Gruber Seiverling 43, Alumni Scholarship 
Committee chairperson. "However, I think 
that Tracy and Toni represent the ideals set 
forth by the scholarship." 

The recipients were recognized during 
the campus Awards Banquet in May and at 
the Alumni Awards Luncheon on June 4. 



Ambassador Program 
Helps Admissions 

The 1987-88 Alumni Ambassador Pro- 
gram, alumni working with the College ad- 
missions office to recruit students, finished 
its successful year with a "phonathon" dur- 
ing the week of March 21st. 

"This year we had alumni contact pro- 
spective students with the idea of inviting 
them to one of our student orientation 
days," said Monica Lomas '88, counselor in 
admissions and co-coordinator of the pro- 
gram. "This way, alumni have a specific 
reason to be contacting the student, which 
makes the call a little less awkward." 

During the conversation, alumni do what 
they can to answer questions and to iden- 
tify any difficulties or concerns students 
may have while making their decisions in 
what is becoming an increasingly com- 
petitive market. 

"We don't expect the alumni to be admis- 
sions counselors, said Mary Jean Bishop '84 
director of alumni services. "Instead we'd 
like our alumni to be ambassador s ... to 
help us corroborate LVC's claim that we 
prepare our graduates to be tomorrow's 
leaders. What better way to substantiate the 
superiority of an LVC education -than with 
our graduates!" 

The program, which was revised this 
year to provide training "workshops," has 
already been more successful than last 
year. As of press time, 116 high school 
seniors out of 274 contacted by Alumni Am- 
bassadors had sent the admissions office 
their non-refundable deposits of $200. 
Overall, the admissions office had received 
210 deposits for the Class of '92. 



The Alumni and Admissions offices have 
been working together to reorganize the 
1988-89 Alumni Ambassador Program. The 
following is a brief outline of next year's 
schedule. 

PHASE I (July 1) 

Participants will be asked during this 
phase to share information with the 
admissions office on prospective students 
by clipping "Students of the Week" articles, 
articles on prospective student-athletes, 
making the College aware of friends' 
college-age children, etc. 

Participants living in the "fringes" of our 
admissions recruitment range will be asked 
to contact students in their areas from the 
College Board lists. 

PHASE II (September 1) 

Participants will be "on-call"to the 
admissions office for help in contacting 
prospective students on an individual basis 
for various reasons. For example, some 
participants will be asked to make calls to 
prospective Leadership and Honors 
Scholars inviting them to attend campus 
interviews and to follow-up after the 
interviews. Other participants will be asked 
to make calls to congratulate "top-notch" 
students on their acceptance to the College. 

PHASE III (March 15) 

During this phase, all participants will be 
involved in an alumni "phonathon" week 
in an effort to get accepted students on 
campus for one of LVC's orientation days in 
the spring. Participants will work closely 
with the admissions office to identify the 
prospective students' concerns. 

PHASE IV (May 1) 

Summer workshops will be scheduled 
both on campus and in areas with relatively 
high concentrations of participants (e.g. 
Philadelphia, NJ, MD, etc.). 

Interested participants will be asked to 
host receptions for students in their area 
who will be attending LVC or who are con- 
sidering applying to LVC in the fall. 

If you would like to get involved with the 
1988-89 Alumni Ambassador program, 
please fill out the form in the next column 
and mail to the Alumni Services Office, 
Lebanon Valley College, Annville, PA 17003 
by July 1,1988.

Alumni News Continued 



Student/Alumni Career 
Advisory Network 

The Alumni Services and Career Plan- 
ning and Placement Offices have been 
working together since January to revitalize 
alumni interest in the Student/Alumni 
Career Advisory Network. This service will 
provide interested students and alumni 
with additional opportunities to obtain in- 
formation on careers from people with 
whom they have something in common- 
an outstanding liberal arts education. 

"I know the LVC graduates have had at 
the very least, well-rounded training and a 
wide variety of experiences," said Gloria 
Scarle 78, who, with Brian Cain '84, met 
with a committee of students earlier this 
spring to discuss ways to get alumni more 
active in the network. Both Scarle, a claims 
representative supervisor for Aetna, and 
Cain, a human resources officer for Meri- 
dian Bank, have called the College Place- 
ment Office on several occasions to recruit 
graduating seniors for job openings in their 
companies. 

Although the ultimate goal of the net- 
work is to help find jobs for students and 
alumni, the network will also provide 
"clients" with the news about current job 
market. 

"We love to get information on job or in- 
ternship openings, but we also need infor- 
mation on alumni who are willing to give 
career advice, to allow students/alumni to 
visit them on the job, or just to lend a sym- 
pathetic ear," said Dave Evans, director of 
career planning and placement. 

To become part of the Student/Alumni 
Career Advisory Network, please fill out

vices Office, Lebanon Valley College, Ann- 
ville, PA 17003.

Hershey Foods Corporation 
Gives $100,000 To The 125th 
Anniversary Campaign 

Hershey Foods Corporation notified Col- 
lege officials in February it would par- 
ticipate in the institution's 125th Anniver- 
sary Campaign with a $100,000 pledge to 
the endowment in support of faculty 
scholarship. To date, campaign pledges 
total nearly $4.5 million. 

"We were delighted to hear that Hershev 
Foods Corporation has decided to 
designate this gift toward the faculty 
development phase of our campaign," said 
Dr. William McGill, Acting President. "This 
gift will enable us to expand our support 
for faculty research and study and thereby 
to continue the enrichment of teaching." 

Over the past three years, Hershey Foods 
has helped ensure the health and vitality of 
the college through contributions to sup- 
port a number of programs including 
Leadership Scholarships, the Annual Fund 
and the Summer Youth Scholars Institute.

tact the Registrar's Office at (717) 867-6135. 

Fair Held For Area Teachers 

The Education Department sponsored its 
First Annual Curriculum Fair of Teaching 
Aids at LVC in April for area mathematics, 
science and social studies teachers who in- 
struct kindergarten through eighth grades. 

"The fair displayed new and innovative 
ideas available for in-service programs of 
area school districts'," said fair organizer Dr. 
Susan Atkinson, assistant professor of 
education. "The simulations, games and 
learning activities provided area teachers 
with an up-close look at what's new in the 
ever-changing field of elementary 
education." 

The fair included board games, team 
games, individual learning/developmental 
activities, simulations, learning centers and 
bulletin board activities. 




Ebersole Scholarship 
Surpasses $25,000 Goal 

Thanks to the persistent work of 
associate professor emerita June Herr and 
200 alumni, the Cloyd H. Ebersole Scholar- 
ship Fund recently surpassed the $25,000 
mark six months prior to the target date. 

At the urging of the members of the class 
of 1983, the fund was set up in 1983 to 
memorialize Dr. Cloyd H. Ebersole, 
chairman of the education department 
from 1966 to 1982, who died in 1983. He 
was responsible for establishing the 
elementary education certification program 
through which LVC has graduated more 
than 700 teachers. 

In the beginning, '83 graduates found it 
difficult to contribute because of financial 
responsibilities. More recently the class has 
been dubbed "The Scholarship Class" due 
to the increased gifts. 

"So many alumni wanted to be part 
of this scholarship fund," said Mrs. 
Herr. "Over the past five years, more 
than 200 elementary education graduates 
have donated many gifts ranging from $5 
to $1,200." 

Scholarship recipients, usually 
sophomores and juniors, are chosen 
annually by the education faculty. Selection 
is based on need, past performance 
and future promise as a professional 
in education. 

To help sustain alumni interest in the 
scholarship fund, Mrs. Herr has continued 
to keep graduates informed of the balance 
through personal correspondence in spite 
of her 1986 retirement after 27 years 
of service. 

During her retirement party in May, 1986, 
gifts in excess of $4,000 were donated to the 
fund in her name by alumni and friends 
who attended the celebration. 

"Former students and colleagues of Dr. 
Ebersole described him as being 'patient 
and understanding, a person who would 
go the extra mile for students needing just a 
little more help,' " said Mrs. Herr recently. 
"By developing the scholarship, the College 
can keep alive the memory of a man whose 
life exemplified the personal and profes- 
sional qualities that our education depart- 
ment promotes and strives to inculcate in 
its future teachers." 

Although the $25,000 goal has been 
reached, further donations will be accepted 
so that additional money is available 
for students. 



Grant Will Fund 
Cancer Research 

The National Cancer Institute, through 
its program "Academic Research Enhance- 
ment Awards," notified Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege officials in May that LVC's Chemistry 
Department would receive a two-year, 
$50-thousand grant to fund a project entitl- 
ed, "Phospato Complexes of Platinum." 

The grant is the result of a proposal 
submitted by Dr. Richard Cornelius, pro- 
fessor and chairman of the Chem- 
istry Department. 

The award will, among other things, pro- 
vide student stipends for summer research 
and fund the purchase of a modern com- 
puter controlled atomic absorption 
spectrophotometer. 

The grant is for the study of chemistry 
related to platinum-containing anti-cancer 
drugs. The world's largest selling cancer 
drug is cisplatin, a compound containing 
platinum. Dr. Cornelius will be working on 
some of the chemistry of cisplatin with the 
goals of understanding some of its chemical 
reactions and preparing other compounds 
to be tested for anti-cancer activity. 

"There are a large number of platinum 
compounds that have already been 
prepared and tested for anti-cancer activi- 
ty," says Cornelius. "Some of them are 
highly effective, and some are without ef- 
fect. Very subtle structural differences in 
these compounds can make an enormous 
difference in their biological activity." 

Dr. Cornelius explains that nearly all 
of these compounds are highly toxic. "In 
our study, we will try to find compounds 
that are less toxic, while, at the same 
time, maintaining anti-cancer activity," 
says Cornelius. 

Carl Miller, a junior chemistry/computer 
science major, Mechanicsburg, PA, and 
Matthew Vera, a sophomore chemistry ma- 
jor, Marietta, PA, have been appointed by 
the Chemistry Department as this sum- 
mer's student research assistants. 

"The students will have an opportunity 
to work at the frontier of chemistry," 
states Cornelius. "At the same time, they 
are helping to address important medical 
problems." 

This grant program was established by 
The National Institutes of Health to in- 
crease the amount of research at small col- 
leges in the nation. The criteria for being 
considered for an award include not only 
quality research, but also a quality 
undergraduate program in the sciences. 

Dr. Cornelius has been professor and 
chairman of the Chemistry Department 
since August, 1985. He received a Ph.D. 
in inorganic chemistry from the University 
of Iowa and a B.A. in chemistry from 
Carleton College.

Peace Corps Recruiter 
Visits Campus 

Patricia Benjamin, a member of the Peace 
Corps, Philadelphia, PA, visited the cam- 
pus in April to speak with students and 
community members interested in joining 
the organization. 

For Chris Wynkop, a junior biology ma- 
jor, the visit has resulted in a new career 
opportunity. 

"One of the things I'm considering is the 
Peace Corps' science education and the 
health-nutrition extension programs," said 
Wynkop. "I thought about the Corps in 
high school, but found that I needed fur- 
ther education to be considered. I didn't 
think much about it until I went to the cam- 
pus seminar. After the seminar, I applied 
for an interview. The interview was 
favorable, and at this point I'm going to 
Philadelphia in June for another. Right 
now, I'm interested in serving the usual 
term which is two years." 

Benjamin recently returned from Zaire, 
Africa, where she taught English as a 
foreign language for two years. Benjamin's 
visit was sponsored by LVC's Career Plan- 
ning and Placement Office. 




Cumberland Valley High 
School Wins 8th Annual 
Quiz Bowl 

Cumberland Valley High School, 
Mechanicsburg, PA, came away this year's 
Quiz Bowl winner when nearly 500 
students from 59 area high schools par- 
ticipated in LVC's Eighth Annual competi- 
tion on campus in March. Finishing second 
was Manheim Township High School, 
Manheim, PA. 

The Quiz Bowl, an intensely competitive 
event where LVC professors and ad- 
ministrators act as moderators, begins with 
a long list of 500 questions. Student teams 
compete by answering questions and 
receiving points for each correct answer 
commensurate with the difficulty of the 
question. Low scoring teams are eliminated 
until only two teams are left to compete. 
The final round determines the winning 
school team. 



Hempfield Wins Math 
Quiz Bowl 

Student mathematicians from Hempfield 
High School, Lancaster, PA captured first 
place in the 7th annual Math Quiz Bowl 
held on campus in April. Runner-up in the 
event was McCaskey High School, Lan- 
caster, PA. The event, run by the LVC Math 
Club, attempts to improve mathematic 
awareness among the participants. 

"Once again, this year's competition was 
a success," said Dr. Horace Tousley, chair- 
man and assistant professor of 
mathematical sciences and Math Quiz 
Bowl faculty advisor." We've had very fine 
comments from the schools who par- 
ticipated and we continue to be impressed 
by the quality of the students who com- 
pete." 

This year's competition included eight 
area high schools. 

Concert Choir Concludes 
52nd Annual Tour 

The Concert Choir and Chamber Or- 
chestra concluded its 52nd annual tour 
with a campus performance in March. 

"The tour was an incredible musical ex- 
perience," said Jef Betz, a freshman choir 
member. "Because we sang the same 
pieces each day, we were able, each time, to 
find something new in the music. Traveling 
with other people on a daily basis, and 
visiting all these areas, helped me to 
develop both musically and as a person." 

This year's program emphasized strong 
contrasts in choral literature. The program 
began with a section on contemporary 
music and continued with works by the 
two greatest masters of the Baroque period, 
Bach and Handel. In these works, the choir 
was accompanied by the chamber or- 
chestra. The program also featured the 
choir singing a wide variety of styles, in- 
cluding folk hymns and spirituals. 

Conducting the choir was Dr. Pierce Getz 
'51, professor of music. This year's tour 
featured stops in Florida, Washington, 
D.C., Virginia, Georgia and North 
Carolina. 

Minnesota Professor 
Speaks On 
Ethical Leadership 

Professionals who enrolled in LVC's fall 
workshops on leadership were welcomed 
back to campus in March for a special 
presentation by Dr. George L. Shapiro, pro- 
fessor of speech-communication at the 
University of Minnesota and nationally 
recognized authority on ethical leadership, 
who spoke on "Ethical Leader- 
ship/Followership Development." 



Dr. Shapiro has been conducting 
research on ethical leadership/followership 
development in Central America and the 
Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, 
Minnesota. 

"My primary motivation is to generate 
knowledge which can contribute to the 
development of ethical leaders and ethical 
followers," said Shapiro. "It is useful to 
know what ethical leaders are like, and 
how they got that way." 

Shapiro has done research on ethical 
leadership and followership in the Twin 
Cities, Minnesota; London, England; San 
Salvador; Managua; and Leon, Nicaragua. 

"In my research, I am looking for dif- 
ferences between male and female ethical 
leaders, between ethical leaders in 
business, health care, education, religion, 
politics, and government and non-profit 
social service," Shapiro says. 

Seminar participants were asked to com- 
plete questionaires used in Shapiro's 
research. They then worked with Shapiro 
to discover what could be done to create 
ethical leaders for business and 
community. 

"His research has shown that ethical 
leaders possess a strong commitment to 
some code of ethical values, values seem- 
ingly based primarily on concern for 
honesty, integrity and the welfare of all 
people," said Dr. Barbara J. Denison 79, 
director of LDI. "Shapiro has found that 
most ethical leaders focus on the long term 
rather than short perspective, avoiding con- 
flict between everyday crisis and their own 
ethical principle." 

"The real question remaining according 
to Shapiro, is what produces an ethical 
leader," continued Denison. "Two findings 
emerge for Shapiro; significant experiences 
between ages five and sixteen shaped the 
leader's ethical posture, and an ethical 
leader has a deep sense of loneliness not 
experienced by woman ethical leaders." 

National Fraternity Installed 

On Saturday, April 30, Tau Kappa Ep- 
silon, a national social fraternity, installed 
its latest Chapter, Rho-Chi, at Lebanon

tional social fraternity at LVC. Presiding 
over the ceremonies was Frater Jim Logan, 
one of 4 expansion leaders of Tau Kappa 
Epsilon.

LVC Offers Program to 
Prepare Students for #1 Best 
Job in America 

If vou don't want to be a doctor, lawyer 
or astronaut (and you're good in math), 
think about getting into the actuarial 
science profession. 

Actuaries — who interpret statistics to 
determine expected personal losses due to 
sickness or disability and material losses 
from disasters — emerged No. 1 on the list 
of professions in a recently released book. 

"The Jobs Rated Almanac," published by 
American References, Inc., of Chicago, 
rates 250 jobs using six criteria including 
salary, stress, work environment, outlook, 
security and physical demands. 

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 that it exists within 
the liberal arts environment of the College. 
The combination of mathematics and 
business makes the actuarial profession an 
exciting opportunity for mathematically 
talented students. 

Among the graduates of LVC's 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. 

Professional status within the actuarial 
profession is attained through completion 
of a series of rigorous examinations 
administered 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 completed through self-study 
during employment. 

The following current students and 
graduates passed actuarial examinations 
taken in November 1987. Congratulations!

Faculty Profile 



LVC English Professor To 
Teach, Learn In China 

By MARGARET ANDRIANI 

Staff Writer 

for The Daily News 

ANNVILLE - When Ralph Waldo Emer- 
son wrote an essay in 1837 entitled "The 
American Scholar," the world had yet to 
hear of Dr. Arthur Ford. 

Now an American scholar in his own 
right, the Lebanon Valley College English 
professor is ensuring that students in at 
least some corners of the world hear of the 
likes of Ralph Waldo Emerson. 

Four vears ago, Ford became the first LVC 
faculty recipient of a Fulbright professor- 
ship to teach in Damascus, Syria, an honor 
few scholars receive once in a lifetime. 

For this Annville resident, however, the 
Fulbright professorship has become a 
twice-in-a-llfetime honor. Ford learned two 
weeks ago that he will again teach 
American literature to foreign students, this 
time in China. 

Ford said that when he and his wife, 
Mary Ellen, left Syria three years ago, "we 
began talking about the next one." 
Fulbright scholars must wait three years, 
however, before they can apply through the 
Council on International Exchange of 
Scholars for a second appointment. 

"Technically, we're limited to three grants 
in a lifetime. I think relatively few try for a 
second one," Ford said. "It's a significant 
disruption in your life... It takes a con- 
siderable amount of daring and probably 
not very manv people want to invest that 
kind of energy." 

Ford will invest his energy this fall 
teaching American literature and literary 
theory at Nanjing University, located on 
the Yangtze River near Shanghai. The ma- 
jority of his students will be graduate-level 
English majors, although Ford said he 
hopes to sharpen his Chinese enough to 
communicate with the non-English speak- 
ing population. 

He said he began studying the language 
about a year ago, in hopes that he would 
receive the appointment. The lengthy ap- 
plication process began in September with 
the CIEU, which acts as clearinghouse for 
Fullbright applicants. A branch of the State 
Department chooses names from this pool 
and sends them to the Chinese university 
for final selection. 

Ford said Nanjing University received his 
name in December, but did not make its 
selection until April. Two or three other ap- 
plicants will also teach at the university and 
about 20-25 teachers total will lecture in 
various Chinese cities during the 1988-89 
academic year, which begins in August. 




Dr. Art Ford '59, professor of English, has received his 
second Fulbright professorship and will teach 
American literature in China this fall. 



Ford will attend a briefing on his trip in 
Washington, D.C., in June. 

"We're looking forward to living in 
another culture. There's an excitement, an 
adrenalin factor," Ford said. "You do live a 
little bit more on the edge." 

But Ford speaks of his trip with the calm 
assuredness of a seasoned veteran. 
Although the modestly-decorated office of 
this English Department chairman, tucked 
at the top of a narrow stairway in the aging, 
pale green house on College Avenue is 
miles away from his exotic destination, Ford 
said he won't be lonely in his new home. 

"While our children don't go with us for 
the year... we expect them all to visit us 
while we're in China," he said, recalling 
that he and his wife had 35-40 houseguests 
during their stay in Syria. "It's fun showing 
people around." 

Although Mary Ellen Ford, who works 
with the Retired Senior Volunteers Pro- 
gram, has no immediate plans for her year 
in China, Ford said she has taken a course 
in Chinese. 

"She's not the sort to sit down, just sit 
back and tend the apartment," he said. 
"She's been working with the elderly for a 
number of years. It will be interesting to see 
the difference in the treatment and the at- 
titude toward the elderly in Chinese socie- 
ty" 

Ford noted that the Chinese have tradi- 
tionally had great respect for the elderly. 

They also hold their teachers in high 
regard, he said. 

"Chinese students are reluctant to speak 
out in class. They prefer lectures," Ford 
said. 



Like many American college professors, 
Ford said he prefers to interact with 
students. 

"That will be one of the challenges," he 
said. 

As an American, however, Ford should 
have little trouble sparking interest in his 
class. 

"They have a tremendous interest in 
English as a language and anything related 
to American culture and American 
literature since the opening up of China 10 
years ago," Ford said, noting that the 
Cultural Revolution from 1966-76 virtually 
destroyed the infrastructure of higher 
education. 

"A whole generation of children did not 
receive any kind of higher education. They 
have been, in the last 10 years, building an 
educational system. For me, it will be quite 
interesting to see what it's like," he said. 

Ford said he doesn't believe Chinese 
students will have as many misconceptions 
about America, because they have had 
relatively little exposure to American 
television. 

"Most students in Syria thought all 
Americans were like the people in 'Dallas.' 
I had to convince my Syrian students that I 
was not wealthy," he said. "Literature is a 
way of introducing them to the culture. Ill 
probably take a much broader cultural ap- 
proach." 

Ford is quick to add, however, that his 
world travels have also corrected his own 
misconceptions and, in some way, those of 
other area residents. 

Since their return from Damascus in 
1985, the Fords have had nearly 85 speak- 
ing engagements with various church and 
community organizations in Lebanon, Lan- 
caster and Dauphin counties. Ford said he 
hopes many of the groups invite them back 
when they return from China next year. 

"We let them know that people are peo- 
ple and people are individuals and it's not a 
good idea to lump them into one category," 
Ford said. 

"It was informative in a sense that they 
got beyond the headlines of the Middle 
East and got to see people as people. In- 
directly, it might have helped a lot of people 
in a very small way to understand that 
Syrians or Israelis or English or Chinese 
are, first of all, people like us. And if you 
see people as people, you're not as likely to 
hate." 

Ford, a 1959 graduate of LVC, earned his 
master's degree and doctorate at Bowling 
Green University, Ohio, and taught at 
Heidelberg College from 1961-65 before 
coming to LVC.

LVC Women Break 
Six Records 

The women's track and field team had a 
very successful season this year breaking 
six College records and finishing seventh 
overall in the Middle Atlantic Conference 
(MAC). 

Sophomore Michele Grube set a College 
record in the 100 meter dash with a time of 
13.3 seconds at the Towson State meet. 

Sue Yingst high jumped 5' 2" at the 
Millersville Metrics meet to tie another LVC 
standard. 

At the MAC Championship, Western 
Maryland College, the team broke a total of 
five additional records: 

--Freshman Tricia Haeusler broke the 
College triple jump record placing eighth 
overall in the conference at 32' 2Vi" . 

-The 1600 meter relay team (Tricia 
Haeusler, junior Sue Yingst, sophomore 
Joann Giannettino, and junior Cindy 
Sladek) finished fourth overall in the con- 
ference and shattered the College record 
with a time of 4:08.99 seconds. 

—In the long jump, Joann Giannettino 
established a new College record at 17' 1%" 
and finished fourth in the conference. 
Giannettino also broke the College 400 
meter hurdles record and finished second 
overall in the conference with a time of 
1:06.17- just .70 shy of qualifying for the 
National Collegiate Athletic Association 
(NCAA) meet. 

-Cindy Sladek established a new College 
800 meter dash record and finished first 
overall in the MAC with a time of 2:17.28. 
Sladek also finished just .70 shy of the 
qualifying for the NCAA meet. 

Other finishes at the MAC Champion- 
ship included: Sladek's fifth place in the 
1500 meter dash (4:54.31); sophomore Sue 
Partilla's seventh place in the javelin (107'); 
Yingst 's 9th place in the long jump (15' 8"); 
and sophomore Maria Fenty's tenth place 
intheshotput(28'5"). 

The team finished their dual meet season 
with a 4-4 record. 

With such strong underclass perfor- 
mances, Coach Jodi Foster is extremely op- 
timistic about the team's potential for the 
future. "Everyone will be returning next 
year-we should have at least two members 
of the team going to the national meet." 



Reichenbach Has Strong 
Performance at Millersville 
Invitational 

Dan Reichenbach, Allentown, PA, was 
the only member of the LVC men's track 
and field team to place at the 10th annual 
Millersville Metrics College Track and Field 
Invitational. The sophomore co-captain 
won the long jump competition in 22' 8%", 
tied for fourth in the high jump at 6' 3", 
and placed seventh in the triple jump at 43 
feet. The men's track and field team finish- 
ed the season with a 2-8 dual meet record. 

Seniors Lead List of Special 
Award Recipients 

Three seniors won special awards at the 
39th Annual Sports Award Banquet: Glen- 
da Shetter (Outstanding Woman Athlete, 
Member of the 1987 MAC Fall All-Academic 
Team, and the National All-American Field 
Hockey Division III First Team), 
Chambersburg, PA; Mark Phillips (John 
Zola Memorial), Warminster, PA; and Don 
Hostetler (Chuck Maston Memorial), 
Camp Hill, PA, were selected as the 1988 
recipients. 

Additional special awards winners were: 
junior Sue Yingst (Woman Sportsmanship 
and FCA Athlete of the Year), Annville, PA; 
and junior Paul Levengood (Scott Wallace 
Memorial), Birdsboro, PA. 

Softball Team Fourth in 
MAC Southwest League 

The women's Softball team defeated 
Washington College 19-8 to finish fourth in 
the MAC Southwest League with a 3-6 
record. The team was led by two freshmen, 
Jen Leitao, Pocomoke, MD, and Caprece 
Carrington, New Haven, CT. Leitao went 4 
for 4 with 4 runs batted in. Carrington 
finished 2 for 2 with 3 runs scored and 3 
runs batted in. LVC lost their final game to 
Moravian (0-15) and finished with a 6-14 
overall record. 

Baseball Finishes Strong 

The baseball team finished strong with 4 
wins in their last 6 games to conclude with 
an overall record of 18-19. The Hying Dutch- 
men closed out their campaign with a split 
against Moravian. LVC lost 2-1 in the first 
game, but came back to win the nightcap 
8-5. LVC finished in fifth place of the MAC 
Southwest with a 4-6 record. The future 
looks very strong for the Valley with the 
loss of only two seniors, Lance Shaffer, 
Elizabethville, PA, and Chris Smith, 
Lebanon, PA. 



Golf Team Ends Season at 
.500 Mark 

The men's golf team ended the 1988 
season with a record of 7-7. In their final 
triangular, LVC defeated Widener 418-455, 
but lost to Delaware Valley 416-418. 
Freshman Jeff Randazzo, West Wyoming, 
PA, shot his lowest round of the year, 77, to 
lead the Flying Dutchmen. He was follow- 
ed by two freshmen, Tom Giovinazzo (80), 
Boyertown, PA, and Chris Arnold (82), Col- 
legeville, PA. Rounding out the top five 
scores were junior Andy Potter (89), Selins- 
grove, PA, and sophomore Tony Buglio 
(90), Harrisburg, PA. With all five starters 
returning, the golf team expects a winning 
season in 1989. 

Ulmer Receives 
Harrisburg Honor 

Robyn Ulmer, a freshman biochemistry 
major and member of the women's field 
hockey and Softball teams, received the

Two Distinguished 
Alumni Die 

Two former recipients of the College's 
Distinguished Alumnus Award died 
recently. 

Dr. Carl Schmidt '14 died April 14 in Rad- 
nor, PA. As a physician, teacher, writer, 
and medical scientist, Schmidt devoted 
more than three and one-half decades 
to the work of extending the boundaries 
of society's knowledge of pharmacology 
and physiology. 

Starting in 1919 as an instructor in phar- 
macology at the University of Penn- 
sylvania, he rose quickly to the chairman- 
ship of this department. During his nearly 
40 years at Penn, Dr. Schmidt traveled to 
all parts of the world and is credited 
with a number of significant medical 
achievements. He worked tirelessly to 
advance the science of pharmacology both 
as a past president of the American Society 
for Pharmocology and Experimental 
Therapeutics, and as former editor of 
the Journal of Pharmacology. His stature as 
a medical scientist was recognized with 
his election into the National Academy 
of Sciences. 

In 1922, Schmidt worked with Dr. K.K. 
Chen to discover ephedrine, the first drug 
that could be taken through the mouth to 
relieve symptoms of hay fever and asthma. 
The drug is still in use today. During World 
War II, he served as a member of the Na- 
tional Research Council's Subcommittee on 
Oxygen and Anoxia and later as consultant 
to the Surgeons General of the U.S. Army 
and Navy, as chairman of the Advisory 
Committee of Life Insurance Medical 
Research Fund, and as a member of the 
Committee on Basic Science of the 
American Heart Association. 

He was presented the LVC Distinguished 
Alumnus Award in 1977 by the College's 
Alumni Association. 

Schmidt was husband to the late 
Elizabeth Gruber Schmidt '18 and is survived 
by his son, Carl F. Schmidt Jr., his 
daughter, Barbara deLong, 5 grand- 
children, and one great grandchild. 

Dr. William N. Martin '18, retired 
educator and religious leader, died April 3 
in Oxford, PA. 

After receiving his B.A. and M.A. 
degrees in biology from LVC, he served as a 
missionary for the Church of the United 
Brethern in Christ, later the United 
Methodist Church, in Sierra Leone. He was 
principal of the Albert Academy and 
undertook extensive field research in the 
West African interior, collecting biological 
specimens for the College and the 
Smithsonian Institution. 

In 1934, Martin received a second M.A. 
from the University of Pennsylvania and in 
1944 an Ed.D. from Teachers College of 



Columbia University. His doctoral disserta- 
tion on "Government Service Abroad after 
the War" contributed to the development of 
the "Point 4 Technical Assistance Program." 
He developed a workshop in Wallingford 
for the Biddle Foundation to train mis- 
sionaries in techniques of inexpensive 
home construction for foreign fields and 
the American South. He also founded an 
independent Christian Service Training 
Center at Frostproof, Florida, which train- 
ed government workers and Christian 
volunteers for assistance to develop- 
ing nations. 

Dr. Martin received the Alumni Associa- 
tion's Distinguished Alumnus Award 
in 1985. 

Martin is survived by his wife, Edna 
Dolland Martin, who received an Honorary 
Degree from the College at the 1988 
Commencement ceremonies on May 8. He 
is also survived by three children, 
John Paul Martin, Grace E. Martin, and 
Joseph Martin. 




Mrs. Edna Dolland Martin visited the campus in April 
to plant a tree in memory of her late husband, 
Dr. William N. Martin '18.
