Do they wash cars, write poetry, head up For tune 500s? Unfortunately, life after New College is not an easy area to describe. Our alumni are just now entering the years when their impact is being felt. And, New College alums aren't always the type to scream their successes from the treetops. Sometimes the news comes from notes scribbled to the alum office al most as asides like Inge Fryklund's ('64) oh-by-the-way note a few months ago updating us on her life, .. .1 argued a criminal case in the U.S. Supreme Court," she wrote simply. Emmy Acton '73 didn't even tell us. If you didn't see her on Good Morning America talking about her successful 1985 U.S. Supreme Court argument, the only way to fmd out was through the grapevine. Arguing in front of the highest court in the nation is no small feat. Out of the more than 5,000 petitions sent to the U.S. Supreme Court every year, only 170 or so are deemed significant enough to be beard. Two New College alumnae, that we know of, have joined the select group who have argued a case there. See story on 9.

Page2 Nimbus Spring 1990 NCAA President Speaks: Part D An Interview With Jono Miller Never in my life had I seen a sunset to equal the one I saw today while wait ing for my friend J ono Miller at the new Sarasota-Bradenton Airport. There is something about a score of jet exhausts mixed with the sunset colors over the Longboat Key skyline that takes your breath away. I bad to wait quite some time, since J ono was delayed at the entrance to the airport by a police blockade. It seems that one of our lively seniors had run a bit amuck and killed a few locals while exercising his right to drive anything he 'damn well could pay for on the roads he had paid for, even if he didn't have a license.' As we left the Airport, we drove past the senior's Mercedes, which had sustained thousands of dol lars in damage. C'est dommage. Jono told me that Julie (always my frrstladyofNewCollege) and their man servant Corley had gone to take the season at Bogota, so he had reserved a table for our little 'lunch-tete' at a chic 'place de Ia cite' atop one of the new 30-story glass towers downtown the NCAA president Jono Miller by John F. Klein 'Penner Building'. You know, the one that's just gone into receivership tres au courant! We began our discussion over a lus cious appetizer of range-fed chicken liver pate on a bed of raddichio with soy milk dressing, and chatted amiably through several courses. As always, Jono's greatest desire is to instill the present students with the pre-merger New College spirit. He is not talking about some sort of Holy Grail. But he is concerned that the ideals of the college were once higher, and that the traditions of excellence and at NC might be slip pmgaway. There are three things that Jono wants to do in order to transfer the pre-merger spirit. Change the reunion date Move the reunion to a time when more meaningful interaction can occur between students and alums. As it now stands, with the reunion on graduation weekend, the only time we have to interact with the students is at a PCP while on the same. More alums on faculty We have one alum on the faculty and we need more. Jono also urges continued support of the alumnae/i fellow program. Campus history Whether this is just simple data collection (i.e., oral histories, photographs, etc.) or a published history in book form, it's time to get serious about this because we are losing faculty and staff who would be relevant to our history at an alarming rate. Campus governance has been the hot issue around the USF/NC community for a while now. Jono and I talked about it in great detail, and there are only two important facts: 1. The Alumass has not been approached as a group to participate in the campus governance study (although some alums are on these boards) so we really have no formal input into it anyway. 2. The original theory on the campus was that the entire USF (and as a result, also NC) governance system would be scrapped and a new one would be developed tabula rasa. Jono told me that he has learned (see article on page 8) that this grand scheme has been severely curtailed and although some changes will occur, nothing earth-shat tering will happen. What's new at Old Gnu is not News. Quotable Quotes From the Prez: On Alumass board meetings -"I pride myself on my ability to run meet ings and I've run two [alum] board meetings now and they've been two of the most emotionally draining and physically taxing meetings I've chaired anywhere." What did he expect? On the Ivy League -"Ninety percent of the people who attended those schools [Ivies] are dead and almost everyone who has attended NC is alive." Sartrian insight! Meisels (USF Grand Kahuna) "He enjoyed most of his dinner meeting with the NC Alumass board." Was it the dessert? A personal view on board service "Some of us on the board do not think that financial solvency should be a pre requisite for board service." Doesn't he know that financial solvency is a prereq uisite for everything now? Sarasota Airport expansion"They ate our trees to facilitate their innova tive parking design and in my opinion it's one of the most dangerous merge and exit facilities on the west coast of Florida. Ask the dead people. John Klein '69, Sarasota, continues his series of intei'Views wiJh NCAA President Jono Miller 70.

Nimbus Spring 1990 Page 3 Seagrass Signage Project (continued) the Bays ecosystem. As an integral part of the Sarasota Bay estuary, these "meadows" of grass provide food, shelter, and breeding grounds for much of the marine life in the Gulf of Mexico at some time in their life cycle. Unfortunately, the seagrass beds are at risk. The propellers of recreational and com mercial motor boats cut the seagrass and its roots which intertwine in long rhizomes in the sediment. The resulting "scars" through the beds can take five or more years to heal at is, if they are not traumatized again by a desperate boater gunning a boat out of the beds. The plight of Sarasota Bay's seagrass beds is one of national interest. In 1988, Sarasota Bay was designated part of the National Estuary Program by the Environmen tal Protection Agency. As such, it is entitled to federal protection and research demostrations which the EPA hopes can be applied to other bodies of water with similar problems. Julie Morris '70 was a technical advisor to the local Management Conference which convened to consider early action demonstration projects. One of Morris's proposals was approved by both the Advisory Committee and the EPA. Serendipitously, Rhonda Evans '75 is the contact person be tween the project coordinator, Ruth Folit '70, and the EPA. Thus the Seagrass Signage Early Demonstration Project came to be, providing an opportunity for cooperation among those who love both Sarasota Bay and New College. The objective of the project is simple: protect the grass beds from further damage by motorboats. The question at hand is whether marking the grass beds with buoys will reduce motorboat propeller scar ring and bow to document it. Folit, Morris, biology professors John Morrill and Sandra Gilchrist, and NCAA president Jono Miller met to determine which areas need study in order to draw scientifically and environmentally sound conelusions about the protection of the seagrass beds. Here is a brief sum mary of the various projects-in-the-wo rks and the people responsible for them: Student Keith Micoli researched the scientific literature on the subject of seagrass beds to determine whether marking beds has ever been studied before. (The answer is no.) Ruth Folit '70 with one of the hazard warning buoy markers for the Seagrass Signage Early Demonstration Project Student David Heuberger is studying the environmental history of each of the five seagrass beds to be marked. He examines old aerial photographs of the bay in order to map the changes in the seagrass beds over time and talks to area experts fiSher men, bridge attendants, marina owners about local conditions. Biologist Sandra Gilchrist sponsored an ISP, and is now leading a student research seminar, about the differen ces between the fauna of relatively undamaged seagrass beds and those of the scarred beds. Student Brian Israel is leading a group of students in the administra tion of a questionnaire he developed with the aid of sociology professor Penny Rosel. The questionnaire is designed to gauge public knowledge and attitudes toward the seagrass beds. Another Israelled project is to observe the way boaters interact with the beds both before and after the markers are placed. Miller is designing the graphics for the buoys, signs for public boat ramps and decals which will be placed on rental boat dashboards, which will be sensitive to the concerns of boaters while promoting the protection of the beds. Biology professor AI Beulig has found in the project the opportunity to try out his radiocontrolled camera technology. He photographed grassbed scars with a camera attached to a helium-filled blimp floating 150 feet over the bay. He will be using similar photography techniques in future trips with students to Belize. Biologist John Morrill's extensive knowledge of the bay and its people has assisted the project throughout. In addition, Morrill is working with Morris in a seminar about Sarasota Bay manage ment. They hope to generate questions which may aid further studies. The grassbed study should be completed by Fall 1991. In the meantime, New College students have an excellent opportunity to work with dedicated alumnae/i and faculty on a project of national significance.

Page4 Luc Cuyvers is a marine scientist and filmmaker who tackled-and ac complished-a very ambitious project: a film study of the world's oceans far beyond the stories that appear in the news media. To Cuyvers, the subject of oceans is much bigger than mere news reports. "Whether it's you or I or Homer or Breughel, we all share something with the ocean. When you look at those sea scapes or read something about the sea, you can't help but recognize what they saw. I'm affected by the ocean the same way the early people were. "But when you look at us collectively there's been a tremendous change the past 25 years .. .from where the ocean used to be the dominant factor in the with man, now man is the dommant factor." There has been, Cuyvers believes, a sort of in the last quarter century m the relationship between man and ocean. Some of the romance of_the sea has been lost to a profit onented shipping industry .... But the changes involve more than commerce. So Cuyvers named his eight-part Nimbus, Spring 1990 Fishing boat with salmon off Alaska's coast Sea Changes: Man's New Relationship With the Ocean by Patricia Brennan, Washington Post staff writer This mticle aboot Luc Olyvm 74 appeared in the March 11, 1990, IV Week section of The Washington Post and is reprinted by penn iss ion. Sped a/ thanks to Alexis Simendinger 75 for bringing it to oor attention. series airing Sundays [in March and April] on The Discovery Channel The Blue Revolution. It's a revolution that isn't over, as far as Luc Cuyvers is con cerned. To him, interest in the sea is not enough. "There's something still beyond that," he said, "It's respect. That needs to extend to more than whales-cod and other animals which are not as photogenic." In his series, Cuyvers set out to ad dress the cultural, economical, political and environmental importance of the world's oceans. To do so, he gathered a $4 million budget from a number of sources-none of whom had to provide more than 20 percent-and employed five crews who shot film footage in Australia, Antarctica, England, Greece, Japan, the Philippines, South America, Switzerland and the United States, as well as smaller areas. "I had a very good team," he said. "Some of them got absolutely stunning film. Overall, the quality is high. In every film, we try to hit different ter ritories." One of Cuyvers' favorite install-ments, for its technical excellence, is called "The Last Hunters," focusing on fisheries and fishing methods. Another is "The Healing Sea," an investigation of marine species that are helping scien tists understand life processes and that may yield new drugs to fight diseases such as Alzheimer's. Others take up the relationship be tween the ocean and the atmosphere in creating weather patterns; the battlefor maritime supremacy and peacekeeping role of the search for minerals m mternat10nal waters and the problem of ownership; and dangers of usmg the ocean for waste disposal. The result is a broad-scope senes "done largely to show that there's much more to the oceans than whales and sharks and oil spills, to present the global view."

(Viewers] also get a history lesson, ranging from the sailors of Portugal and their patron Prince Henry the Navigator to the once-thriving Dutch East India Co., a conglomerate of smaller entities that was probably the world's first multinational company; from the origins of passenger traffic (immigrants fleeing the Irish potato famine of 1846-47) to Japan's futuristic designs for huge, fast ships and un manned robot container ships run by computers. Belgian-born Cuyvers has always been fascinated by the sea. As a high school exchange student in Florida in 19'n, he began to realize that he would have better opportunities studying marine science in the United States than in his native country. He enrolled in the New College of the University of South Florida, graduated in 1978, and moved up the East Coast to earn both a master's degree and a doctorate in marine studies from the University of Delaware. Along the way, he worked for several film companies and planned his film series. "Blue Revolution was something I had to do," he said. Today, Cuyvers lives on a sailboat (a Morgan 38) in Annapolis, Md., and heads the nonprofit Mare Nostrum Revolution" Foundation, an educational organiza tion he founded in 1980 mainly to fund production of The Blue Revolution. It may be the foundation's only en deavor, he said. "I now fmd that the nonprofit sector may not be the best to get these projects going," be mused. "Things move too slowly." Now, Cuyvers is looking ahead. "I'd like to switch to something I want to do. There's a lot more ocean to be covered on television." He bas in mind a project on maritime history (although he's afraid the mere mention of the topic may put some people immediately to sleep). Specifi cally, he wants to compare the Chinese maritime heritage and the Arab maritime history. "The Chinese history was fascinat ing. They had a different perspective: They never imposed their ideas on others and at the same time they didn't want to learn from others. They were sort of arrogant, though, sort of xenophobic." Blue Revolution tells viewers, "The Chinese decided that maritime trade was for the inferior races." The time for historical documen taries may be approaching, he said. "There's interest right now in environ mental documentaries, but it's cyclicalof course people will always be inter ested in fuzzy animals and things-but I think the next interest will be in history and geography."

From their observations it was determined that Cyprfnodon males change their breeding strategy in response to changing environ mental and social variables such as tidal flux, food resources, cloud cover, availability of egg-laying sites and density of receptive females It was also deter mined that the social conditions under which females display aggressiveness sur round feeding activities and are not related to territoriality in oontrast to the males. Both students made presentations at the ASZ meeting and it was acknowledged that some of the theories on mating strategy of the Cyprinodontids currently in the literature will have to be revised as a resuH of this work In addition, Fishberg and Patton and their ongoing experiments were featured in a CNN Science News segment which was broadcast on the CNN evening news and CNN's Science and Technology Week on March 31 and April 1, 1989, respectively A video tape copy Is in the Media Center.

PageS Nimbus, Spring 1990 Charter Classes Gathering School reunions are a time to trans act unfinished business. We travel back in time, hoping to get to say the we left unsaid, hoping to hear the things we never got to hear. Too often, the people we hope to see do not appear, and we leave with unpacked baggage. Other issues are finally put to rest, or perhaps they in turn lead to new begin nings, openings to corridors that were locked and barred. by Steve Hall America, one must ftrst understand baseball. Paul Adomites and Luke Salisbury gave us some inkling of why this is so as they shared with us their his recent poetry, and David Gorfein about new developments in the_ory from his work at Adel phi Uruversrty. A veteran of half a dozen New Col Lege reunions, I wanted to create one special gathering that would ac complish what the traditional reunion format usually failed to do. We never seem to adequately succeed in pulling together our contemporaries. The life of the college is community, and our personal image of that community rests on many more people than those who through the accident of chance reached graduation day at the same time, or even made their initial way to the col lege on the same September week. Jet Lowe '65 and Steve Waterman '65 Organization of the Gathering would have an impossibility wrthout the cooperation and dedication of alum coordinator Carol Ann Wilkinson. Karle Prendergast made ar rangements for a ban quet on the mansion patio, where daily meals were consumed in times past.

Marc Silverman provided an elegant and masterful performance in his benefit piano con-The Charter Classes Gathering, over the weekend of January26-28, came as close as I have ever experienced to recreating the spirit of community that existed in the last crazy years of the 1960's.

Page 8 Nimbus, Spring 1990 Academic Structure Report Ready The Academic Structure Task Force gives USF Provost Meisels a statement of principles and four administrative models The Sarasota Academic Structure Task Force is in the fmal stages of the preparation of its report to Provost Meisels in Tampa. The Task Force was appointed in November to explore possible models for administering the Sarasota campus. Its membership includes New College Foundation trus tee Dr. Samuel Gould (chair), New College faculty Douglas Berggren, Laszlo Deme, and Peter Kazaks, and representatives of the USF administra tion in Tampa and Sarasota, University Program faculty, and New College and University program students. The Task Force received written submissions from dozens of concerned New College students and faculty, and met with several campus officials, including General Heiser, Provost Bates, and former Dean Barylski. Statement of Principles The Task Force report will begin with a statement of principles. Ex pected to be included are the followmg: The distinctiveness and separate identities of New College and the University Program must be preserved; As much as possible, Sarasota problems should be resolved in Sarasota; Cooperation through consult ation and coordination must be encouraged; The chief academic officer of New College should continue to report directly to the University provost in Tampa. The problems noted by the Task Force stem mostly from the presence of two programs with disparate needs and priorities on a single campus. At the moment, the campus dean is also of the University Program, and officer retains authority over the entue campus, with the exception of the New College academic program. by Eric Schickler The NC provost and the dean each have direct access to the University provost in Tampa. The NC provost has no authority over residential life (which serves only New College stu dents) or any facilities and services serving both programs (e.g., the library, faculty office space, classroom Eric Schickler, New College student representative on the Academic Structure Task Force. space, facilities planning). The ques tion is how to ensure that policies and support services are fair to both programs, without in any way jeopardizing the programs' separate identities. Four Administrative Models The Task Force did not reach a con sensus on a particular administrative model. Four possible plans are being forwarded to Provost Meisels, with the advantages and disadvantages listed for each. The first two models essentially combine the NC provost and campus dean into a single chief executive officer. This person would be the chief academic officer for New College and the chief administrative officer for the campus. General Heiser along with New College students and some faculty, have expressed concern that such a centralization might demote the New College program by denying it an exclusive advocate with direct access to Tampa. The other possible models keep a New College provost and a dean, and redistribute authority between the two officers. Both of these models give the provost authority over residential life. New Positions Suggested The Task Force is also recommend ing that two new positions be created: a dean of the New College faculty and a director of administrative services. The dean of the faculty would assist the provost in academic administration, and would, we hope, work with faculty and students to develop academic innovation. Furthermore, the Task Force is proposing that an Administrative Senate, with representatives from all constituencies on the campus, be formed to improve coordination and communication. Finally, the Task Force is recommending changes in the Office of Stu dent Affairs. There have been numerous student complaints about the responsiveness of Student Affairs. The Task Force concluded that the New College student affairs coor dinator should report directly to the New College provost rather to the Student Affairs director. Th1s shouJ.d promote the cohesiveness of acadeouc and residential programs. Eric Sdziclder is the New College studeJ_zt representative on the SarasotaAcadermc StJUcture Task Force.

Nimbus, Spring 1990 Page9 Supremely Successful lnge Fryklund '64 Holland v. Illinois The ftrst courtroom loge Fryklund ever entered was the U.S. Supreme Court when she was a schoolgirl in Vir ginia. Her life turned full circle in October 1989 when she stood there again this time as a part of the ac tion, not a spectator. Fryklund, a Chicago prosecutor at the time, argued that the Constitution does not require that a jury be a cross section of professions, religions, sex or ethinic background, only that it be impartial. The pivotal case began 10 years ago when Fryklund, who had just graduated from the University of Chicago Law School, was a novice prosecutor in the Cook County State Attorney's office. That same year, a 23-year-old man named Daniel Hol land was convicted of kidnapping and raping a 17-year-old girl outside of Chicago. Fryklund had nothing to do with the case then. In fact, it wasn't until 1988, after she had become the supervisor of criminal appeals division, oversee mg 70 attorneys, that she really paid any attention to Holland. His public defender had appealed the decision for many different reasons and the case fmally made its way to the Supreme Court. The main issue was whether Holland, a white man, had a fair and impartial jury when the only two blacks in the jury pool had been excused. It was an interesting issue. In 1986, in the landmark Batson decision, the Court decided a prosecutor could not arbitrarily exclude blacks from a black defendant's jury. Holland was a white man, however. His attorney argued that he did not get a fair trial because he was not tried by a fair cross section of the community and claimed that his client's Sixth Amendment rights had been vio lated. Fryklund disagreed and began to re search the issue. She began to write the brief in June in preparation for the Oc tober 1989 argument. After a full day at by Susan Burns work, she went home, bad dinner put the kids to bed, put on a pot of and worked from 10 p.m. until 3 or 4 a.m., reading every case dealing with jury selection going back to the 1800s. Fryklund's argument was scheduled for .n. Surprisingly, she was not paruc stncken. She had practiced her It was like walking the plank." Fryklund made her argument and got away without having to answer many questions. "I was a little disappointed they didn't ask more. I was prepared." OnJanuary22, 1990, the U.S. Clerk's office faxed her the decision. The court, in a 5-4 vote, agreed with Fryklund. She lnge Fryklund at Charter Classes Gathering in January with (former NC now Adelphi) professor David Gorfein argument once in a moot court of Cook County state attorneys and Illinois at torneys general and had sat in the Supreme Court for two weeks watching how things were done. "I felt much more at ease after having been in the environment," she says. "There is a lot of interaction between the justices and a lot of joking and snipPY remarks. For example, I remember (Justice Antonio) Scalia saying once, 'Gee, this case is a lot less significant than we thought it was.' It made it easier seeing that they were human." Each side gets 30 minutes to present a case in the Court. The whole thing goes off like clockwork with stop and go lights at the lecturn. When the justices interrupt to ask a question, they want a quick, straight answer. The only real moment of fear came as Fryklund stood up at the lecturn to speak. "As long as I was sitting down, I felt protected. Standing up, you feel com pletely exposed. I just thought, 'Oh, my God, I'm out in the middle of nowhere.' wasn't in the least surprised. "It was exactly as I predicted. I knew I would win 5-4. Everybody was on paper before the issue was argued. Maybe the oral argument was com pletely irrelevant. I think they'd made up their minds. In fact, I think they took the case because they were looking for a way to decide the issue. They knew it was going to come up after the Batson decision." Fryklund's victory marked the end of her years as a prosecutor. Now Fryk lund is hunting down people who double park on Michigan Avenue or ignore their parking fines. She's euphemistically called the "Parking Czar" of Chicago.

"Through an attitude that you don't take anything for granted. I always ask, 'Why are we doing this?' It's not a ques tion you hear very often." By the way, she adds, if any New College alum has any ideas about what to do with cars in big cities, give her a ring. Emmy Acton '73 Hillsborough County, Florida, Commissioners v. Automated Medical Laboratories When Emmy Acton was an English literature major at New College, she once tried to get into one of Bob Benedetti's advanced political science classes. He turned her down for a more qualified student. Most likely, that wouldn't happen today. Acton is Chief Assistant County At torney for Hillsborough County in Tampa, Florida. When she joined the office eight years ago, her first case dealt with an attempt to regulate plasma centers. You know the places. The buildings where the winos and down and-outs are lined up outside the doors waiting to give that sticky substance that helps make blood clot in return for a few bucks. Bernadine Lundstrom 1937-1990 Bernadine "Berni" K. Lundstrom died Jan.19, 1990, after a long illness. She had been with New College since 1965. She was appointed comptroller in 1968 and business manager ofUSF/Sarasota in 1983. Berni's role at New College was most visible to students when fees were due, but her work was vital to the day-to-day functioning of the college. "She was a very central part of this campus," said Dean David Schenck. Prior to 1983, plasma centers were only regulated by the federal govern ment. Then the Hillsborough County Commission decided to get involved. Plasma centers in Tampa were being abused by "plasma donors" who would go from clinic to clinic to make money. Not only was the practice endangering their health there is only so much blood a person can safely donate in a certain period of time but it was also possible that the public health was in danger. None of these people were tested for diseases like hepatitis and AIDS prior to donating blood. The tests were done only after the donations. And unfortunately, paid donors often need the money (for booze, drugs, or food) and therefore have an incentive to lie about their medical histories. Volunteer donors, on the other band, probably stay away from blood banks if they know their blood is, or may be, infectious. To Acton and the Hillsborough County Acton was up against the national association representing blood banks various medical groups, medical pliers and even grocery store representatives. (Somehow they saw an encroachment into the plasma industry as an open door to regulate the food industry.) She spent at least three weeks in the USF library going through microfiche before she found documentation that showed that the federal government did not mean to wrest control of plasma centers from local government. Acton's case was the fourth of the day. What she remembers most is the size of the lecturn. Acton, only five feet, one inch tall, was at a lecturn where few women stand and it was way too high. She almost blew her cool trying to turn the crank to lower it until one of the justices joked that they were used to basketball players. (This was an inside joke since some of the justices and clerks often commissioners, this was too risky. Blood bags leak and break, according to Acton, possibly contaminat ing workers and work areas. "Poetry is pretty good training for writing briefs. play basketball together.) Acton only got three minutes into her argument when Justice You make every word count." The Commission passed an ordinance requiring pre-test ing of individuals who wanted to donate and required an ID card for each donor which would allow him or her to donate at only one center. One of the plasma centers, Tampa Plasma, owned by a mega-conglomerate called Automated Medi cal Laboratories, balked at the restrictions. Accusing the commis sioners of trying to drive them out of business, AML bigwigs hired an older, experienced New York attor ney, Larry Stumps, to fight the case in court. His worthy opponent was Acton. Not only was Stumps intimidat ing, but Acton had to bone up on a lot of technical medical informa tion. (Husband Dr. Michael Maher '72 helped with the reading.) Acton won the first battle in court. The plasma industry appealed and even tually the case wound up in the Supreme Court. Sandra Day 0' Connor asked her a question, and from then on, she was left answering a battery of "what ifs." Looking back on the or deal, she says the justices did not ply her with difficult questions. She figures they were on her side even then. She won her case unanimously and today Tampa plasma centers are regu lated. Acton does not know how many other localities followed suit because of her precedent-setting victory. When Acton looks back at New College she remembers Mac Miller trying to till her out of law school and into writing poetry. She says she didn't go too far astray. "Poetry is pretty good training for writing briefs. You make every word count." Susan Bums '76 is a freelance writer in Sarasota.

George Ruppeiner($400) Travel to Telluride, Colorado -Summer Workshop on Simu lated Annealing, July 9-23, 1989 The workshop in Telluride was most productive. There were about twenty-five participants from all over the world. The primary subjec1 was simulated annealing, and 1 spent a good bit of time discussing it with the participants. They were most interested in my results on the Traveling Salesman Problem, obtained with a New College student, Nathan Pfluger. These results show that on an instance of the Traveling Salesman problem, constant thermodynamic speed cooling produces the best results, as we conjectured, and as was found previously. The results of this research have been written up and will shortly be submitted to the journal Com munications in Computer Physics with Mr. Pfluger as a coauthor.

"Professor Renne had a strong commitment to education in the widest sense of the word. His interest in experimentation and altematU:zve teaching styles was the hoi/mark of his career, said Dr. Margaret Bates, interim provost. "He was concerned with ecolog:; and problems of development. His contributron to New College was unique." A memorial service for him was held on March 22 on the campus bay front. The following tribute to Professor Renne was written by his student and friend, David Wilkens '82 The New College community is mourning the death of one of our dearest friends and colleagues, Roger Renne. On March 2, 1990, at his farm in Arcadia, Roger took his own life. His death has dealt an uncertain blow to the college, leaving deeply sad dened hearts and many questions. Many of you may remember Roger as one of New College's more eccentric faculty and an outspoken advocate of a more liberal view of academics and personal achievement. Though a math professor by designation, his sponsorship was varied and personally tailored to the desires and goals of his students. To Roger, academic excellence was not a "requirement" or an end, but rather an ongoing explora tion of personal talents with a commitment to overcoming obstacles to self realization and growth. Roger's relationship with the administration and faculty bad often been tenuous and sometimes adver sarial, but his commitment to the stu dents of New College was unwavering and compassionate. Yet, in the last few years, his "competency" as a professor was questioned and in the end he was relieved of his duties and asked to submit his resignation from New College. If you wish, please write to his family he is survived by his wife, Carol (Mahler '78), two daughters and two sons. They have been symbols of strength for the rest of us over the last few weeks and would appreciate bearing from any of you who knew Roger.

However, for those who may have heard of or remember the suicides of students David Dunn and Eilat Johnson, there is evidence of a pattern of disease at New College. Three suicides in the space of only two years, including one by a senior faculty member, should not be viewed as isolated events. The flight of the counsel ing staff after Dave's death, the slow dissolution of the psychology program and last year's resignations of both the New College provost and USF dean point to chronic problems and should lead us to question prevalent attitudes and struc tures. A New College spiritual leader is dead. The spirit of the New College experience will not die with him, bowever, if we press to uncover the problems giving rise to our struggle and sorrow. If you would like to know more, I encourage you to write members of the administration, faculty and student government.
