ARC HI VES AlUMNI NEWS NEW COLLEGE P. O. BOX 1898, SARASOTA, FLORIDA NOVEMBER, 196 7 THE BIG NEWS -ACCREDITATION! A phone call from President Elmendorf in Dallas brought the good news on Friday, December 1 -New College is now fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. This means that the College has been carefully examined by its institutional peers and found to be meeting the educational, administrative, and other standards to which they all subscribe. It means that the purpose of New College to provide superior ed ucation to highly motivated students is being fulfilled. We are justifiably proud of this achievement, but we are even prouder of the students and faculty who made themselves a part of New College before accreditation was even a possibility. These venturesome ones, and those like them who will continue to come to this campus because they are attracted by the things we are trying to do, are the real source of whatever institutional validity we can hope to attain. CHARTER CLASS GIFT We are very pleased to report that 87% of the Class of '67 contributed to the Senior Class Gift Fund a total of $390. This amount has been doubled by a matching gift from an anonymous donor, making a grand total of $780. Most of the senior's gifts were unrestricted, but the two designated for Natural Science Laboratory equipment have been used to purchase a battery eliminator for use in the psychology department. One other restricted gift was designated for purchase of a math book, and Morris Marden's GEOMETRY OF POLYNOMIALS has now been added to the library's shelves. The balance of the fund has been turned over to the librar to be used toward purchase of the following journals: AMERICAN POLITICAL SCIENCE REVIEW: JOUR NAL OF CRIMINAL LAW, CRIMINOLOGY AND POLITICAL SCIENCE: and PUBLIC ADMINIS TRATION REVIEW. All departments concerned are delighted with their gifts, and we hope all you graduates will take pride in the knowledge that you, as individuals and as a unit, have made a significant contribution to the College. 46TH GRAD! Graduates of '67 will be glad to know that you now number 46. Bruce Lamartine completed his language requirements with typical thoroughness, and is now doing graduate work in chemistry at Case-Western Reserve University in Cleveland. STUDENT COMMUNITY PROJECTS Aware of the importance to the College of maintaining good relations with the community, students on campus are making significant contributions toward achieving that very thing. One of the most success ful projects ever undertaken was the recent Halloween party held outdoors at Hamilton Center to entertain some 300 children from local schools. More than 60 enthusiastic New College students worked on the project which included a spook house, fortune teller, a pumpkin patch with a giant pumpkin, make up tables, apple bobbing, games, candy and toys, as well as a closed circuit television hook-up in which the youngsters could see themselves in costume. Cost of the evening was borne by the student activity fund. In addition, students are cooperating 100% with Development and Public Relations departments by serving on discussion panels, attending guest luncheons and dinners, and even forming their own public relations committees. Jerry Neugarten heads a student Development CommittP.e, and Ell@n Tisdal P has organized a group of student guides who are on call to escort visitors on tours of campus buildings. The Student Speakers Bureau is very active and the participating students (Kit Arbuckle, Nancy Flatter Hall, Dan Haggarty, Allan Jaworski, Sharon Morris, Mary Lou Phillips, Patricia (Sandy) Sanderson, Ellen Tisdale, Rye Weber and Cheryl White) have several dates for speaking engagements at community club meetings and churches. ADMINISTRATION MOVES TO SOUTH HALL President Elmendorf, Vice President Davis, and Public Relations director, Brud Arthur, are oving their offices this week to the remodeled and refurbished former Sanford House, adjoining College Hall. The new quarters will provide larger and more efficient working space for not only the administration but also several members of the faculty. WANTED MISSING LIBRARY BOOKS As Chairman of the Student Library Committee, Don Aronoff makes the following appeal: "Dear Alumni, Things are fine here. Dr. Mayer is at the lecturn and all's right with the world, The library does have a little problem though. Approximately 250 books are missing from last year. If by any chance you have any library books, please help us out and return them. PEACE (Signed) Don Aronoff"
OXFORD OBSERVATIONS At the request of the editor, Maureen and Dennis Kezar wrote interestingly from New College at Oxford of their im pressions of England: We were a little concerned about be ing thrust into the strangeness of a new country We had been warned on numerous occasions that unsuspecting foreigners were often taken advantage of by enter prising businessmen, but we found none of this on the contrary, everyone we met was most helpful. The first thing that struck us was our taxi driver's knowledge of and feeling for the history of his home He would apologize in one breath for his lack of education, and in the next, deliver an excellent 'lecture', And this man was by no means unique We have found people everywhere -in laundromats, markets, and tubes -to be seeped in a natural kind of knowledge of what is around them, and very willing to talk about it. Perhaps it is easier for an Englishman to be aware of his past, for everything around him is so very, very old .. Concrete steps worn thin in the middle by people having walked on them since the 13th century are quite a contrast from the comparative newness of the buildings in the States Unfortun ately we haven't found this antiquity so very desirable in the living conditions. It is common here for a home to have been built in the 18th century needless to say, most didn't have central heating, and partly through an unwillingness to admit that it is cold, and partly because of NEWS ABOUT PEOPLE YOU KNOW -2 -finances, about 60% of the homes still don't have it. People choose to put shilling pieces into a little box in the wall which triggers a few little electric coils to glow red. Consequently, a lot of people don't need and don't have refrigerators. As a result, goods in grocery stores are sold in much, much tinier packages than in the States. It is impossible to purchase milk in any larger size than a pint container, and ice cream is sold by the 8 ounce pack only. Of the University itself, we have come to the realization that it is not in a class by itself. While lectures, and students, here are of excellent quality, those at New College, Florida, are comparable. What Oxford does offer to compensate for the close relationships we enjoyed at New College, is a constant flux of famed figures. In the past three weeks, we have heard Richard Burton, W. H. Auden, Edmund Blunden, Lord David Cecil, A. J. Ayer, Gilbert Ryle, and the Archbishop of Canterbury. Surely, if these two qualities were fused, one would have the 'best of two possible worlds'." GRADS VISIT CAMPUS Two familiar faces recently seen on campus were those of Dave Hartley and Bruce Lamartine, both enjoying Thanksgiving vacation time renewing New College friendships. ANNOUNCEMENTS Campus engagements include those of Vickie Pearthree and Charles Raeburn; Edna Walker and Laurie Paulson; Wendy Glover and David Moore, whose wedding is scheduled for December 27, in Salt Lake City. The following information in some cases may be somewhat out of date as we go to press, but it will give you an idea of what former students are doing and perhaps encourage the rest of you to keep the Alumni Office current on your activities and whereabouts.
