new co eGe n maus Volume 4, Number 3 Summer 1988 Board Adopts Mission Statement Asks Alumni to Vote Excerpt from letter to alums (see page 2} from Alumni Association president, Dan Chambliss: ... New College Is distinctive because of its philosophy of education; an alumni association ought to protect that distinctiveness. I. As former -and truly lifelong students of New College, we alumni feel a special responsibility for its integrity and well-being, with all that that entails. Therefore, we herein state what we find to be our commitment to the College. II. We believe that New College exists fundamentally to give life to a set of core principles, set forth at the College's founding and restated time and again, in various forms, throughout the College's existence. These principles represent our own understanding of what New College can, at its best, offer; what it offered us; and what we hope it will continue to offer. We understand these principles to be: e Each student is responsible for his or her own education. This entails freedom and accountability, both of which should be generously defended. Much should be allowed of, and much expected from, every New College student. Hence the Mission Statement you'll find in this issue of Nimbus. .. Take a look at it. See what you think. Let us know. The Mission Statement below and is continued on 16. Also on page 16 1s a ballot for you to return, in dicating your approval or disapproval of the statement. The best education results from the active confrontation of minds. Excel lent students and teachers must be brought together; the systematic op portunities for the meeting of stu dents and teachers should be generous; joint efforts at learning should be encouraged. There should be minimal constraints on learning, with maximal oppor tunities. New College should enforce only the fewest possible rules, regulations, and administrative im pedimenta to real education. There should be maximum student access to facilities, support for student re search, and encouragement for stu dent educational initiatives. Those students who want to learn should always be helped, never hindered. Excellence, not adequacy, is the goal of a New College education. Since its Continued on page 16

Page2 Nimbus, Summer 1988 A Letter From the President: We're Not Your Average Alumni Association Dear Alums, NC is not your average college, and NCAA is not your typical alumni association. Most such groups specialize in tailgate parties before The Big Game and weenie roasts sometime in mid-June, after the students have all left campus. The real purpose (for Average U. Alumni Associa tion) is bringing in the bucks, and the method relies on (1) reminiscing about days at the Frat House and (2) a slide show by the Development Office, followed by a solicitation. We've got nothing against either fundraising (we do plenty) or weenie roasts or reminiscing, but the real purpose of this association, at least for many of you I've spoken with, is Preserving tlte New College Education, or something like that. The College is distinctive because of its philosophy of education; an alumni association ought to protect that distinctiveness. Hence the Mission Statement you'll find in this issue of Nimbus. The product of some fairly intense discussions by the NCAA board members, the statement tries to capture what is uniquely NC's, and to say that we will fight for that uniqueness. This will be, at least for the time being, our purpose. Not money, not football, not even reunions (al though reunions are a vital part of what we do, and a way of re-creating the New College experience for us "lifetime dents"), but education. That's what the Mission Statement says. Take a look at it. See what you think. Let us know. The May reunion brought out a lot of former NC'ers, especially when you realize that this year, because of the College's calendar, we met the week before Memorial Day. Bummer. That won't happen next year; the faculty has moved back to the traditional date. Nevertheless, we had roughly 100 or s? alums/withdrawns etc. show up and get down. Janet Wetsenford was responsible for organizing the event did a &'"eat job! getting hotel rooms, setting up the catenng servtce, finding class representatives, and such. She deserves your thanks, if you were there. And several Alums Needed for Planning Seminar Good People helped fmd alums for the target classes: Laurie and Edna Paulson, Dan Ryan, Lori Smolker and Jay and Judy Lentini (the Telephone Queen of the Midsouth) tracked down many of their classmates. Their work resulted in many "Lost Are Found" successes, and some interesting conversations. At the annual business meeting, alums voted to figure a way of changing the NCAA's method of tracking people, so you now will be listed by entry year instead of gradua tion year. Lot of folks had complained about this, and Carol Ann Wilkinson and Lee Harrison are working out the technical details. Roger Klurfeld gets credit for bringing it up at the meeting. We also heard from Provost Bob Benedetti, Foundation President Gen. Heiser, Campus Dean Bob Barylski and Dave Dagon, the student government head, who gave a real nice talk of what the campus's physical problems really result from --not the airport per se, or commuter students alone, but the rapid urbanization of Sarasota County. He's writing something for a future issue of Nimbus to explain this. Congratulations to Fay Clayton and Sharon Landesman, who were both irtstalled on the NC Foundation board in May, and so become members of the NCAA board as well. The more good people involved, the more good we can accomplish. Joy Barnitz is the new secretary for the NCAA board. Ken Misemer remains treasurer, and I'll be president for one more year. And Carol Ann Wilkinson is the executive director (I think that's her title now; I know that it's her de facto job). I \ {(.."-_ J _; Dan Chambliss What Have You Written Lately?

Nimbus, Summer 1988 Page3 Secret Agent Surfaces After 20-Year Silence I thought coming to the reunion would be a simple matter. I was wrong. I'd hardly stepped off the plane and experienced the familiar wet-dishrag-in-the face sensation of Florida in late May when I was ap proached by a neatly dressed young couple. "Look," I began, "if you think I'm going to give another cent to Lyndon La Rouche ... But before I had a chance to say anything else, the man and woman had each grabbed one of my arms in a painful grip. They hustled me through the airport terminal and toward a car waiting at the curb. "You've made a mistake," I protested as they shoved me in the back seat. "I'm just a New College graduate, here to attend my 20th reunion." "There's no mistake," the young man said. "We know who you are. You're Agent 68." I was stunned. How could they know of my secret identity, so many years ago, as New College's first secret agent? There was only one ex planation -they were agents of KOOS, better known as Keep Out of Sarasota, the dreaded terrorist group whose plans to destroy the college in its formative years I had foiled so many times. I didn't dare let on that I knew they were KOOS agents. "We know what you're thinking," the woman said. "And we're not KOOS agents. That organization merged with Friends of New College U years ago." By Laurie Paulson (AKA Agent 68) Could that be ARB talking to Secret Agent 68 during the 1988 reunion? Edna Paulson, Abby Misemer andArlanna Young seem oblivious to the historic meeting. "Then who are you?" I asked, "and bow did you know I was once Agent 68?" "We're New College students. We read about you in back issues of The Catalyst," the young man said. "How could you hope to keep your identity secret when you wrote about your ex ploits in the student newspaper?" "It was perfect," I said. "Nobody read The Catalyst." "Nonetheless," the woman said, "those stories told us all we needed to know. We read about the many times you foiled plots to destroy the college. We even read about your chief, the brilliant but enigmatic faculty member you knew only as ARB." "That's because I never went to any of his classes," I said. "We knew that too," the young man said. "We also read your transcripts." By that time, the car had reached the campus. The two students led me to a room in the Pei dorms by scaling a balcony wall and entering through the sliding glass doors. I knew the route well. I had, after all, lived through intervisitation. To my surprise, the room was ftlled with students. They looked at me ex pectantly. What did they want of me? "What do you want of me?" I asked. A tall young man with a neat beard walked up and shook my hand. "Agent 68, we're honored to meet you. You're the only one who can help us." "Help you with what?" I asked. "The Sarasota-Bradenton Airport Authority wants to turn part of the campus into a parking lot, and the college isn't doing enough to stop them. We're afraid it will be the end of New College as we know it. It's as great a threat as you ever faced with KOOS." "That's terrible," I said. "But what can I do to help? I'm out of shape.

Only one man could help me. But I searched the graduation crowds for him in vain. The next morning, I tracked him down at his retirement home near the bay. A servant directed me to the back. There, watering the hibiscus, was the man to whom I once owed so much. He turned and looked at me. "Don't you still owe me a paper?" ARB asked. "I've learned to live with the Incom plete," I replied. Alums visiting on steps of College Hall at reunion picnic It seemed just like the old days, visiting ARB's secret office under the shallow end of the swimming awaiting word of my next perilous as signment. For a moment, I almost hoped he'd urge me to undertake the students' mission. But after I told him the story, his advice was charac teristically enigmatic. It's been years since I practiced secret agentry. Even my writing style has changed." "Thank God," said someone in the back of the room. I ignored that. "Hell,"l said, "I'm a middle-aged guy." "That's just what we need," the bearded student said. "We need someone to infiltrate the enemy camp. Y ou'lllook just like everyone else on the Airport Authority." I had to give them credit. It was at least as clever a plan as ARB and I bad ever hatched. But I had retired from that game 20 years ago. Did I want to go back? Could I? I'd have to think about it. "I'll have to think about it," I said. "How long do I have?" "You can have 48 hours," the bearded student said. "We'll contact you during the Saturday night PCP." "The what?" I asked. "Did you really go to New College?" another student asked, incredulously. "The PCP. Palm Court Party. The reunion planners are nostalgically recreating one of those loud and boisterou-; parties you used to have in the Palm Court." "If we'd had a loud party in the Palm Court, I said, "the proctor would have caught us and we'd have been hauled before the Student Court." "Proctor?" "Never mind," I said. "I'll see you in 48 hours." The next day was filled with stress and confusion. But I knew I had to stop thinking about the reunion and decide what to do about the students' request. Could I really resume my role as a covert protector of New College after all these years?

"What do you mean?" the student that kind of vision, but enough people do. And you have one big ad vantage." "What's that?" "We really were fighting for our lives," I told hUn. "But the leaders of Keep Out of Sarasota now attend New College Foundation luncheons. Fighting the Sarasota-Bradenton Air port Authority should be, relatively speaking, a piece of cake." "And you really think we should develop our own secret agents?" he asked. "Never mind that," he said. "What's your answer?" We walked away from the noise of the "Sure," I said. "How about you, for instance?" Bob Benedetti with reunion coordinator Janet Weisenford "Me?" he said. A strange look came over his face, and he looked toward the swimming pool.

Chapter News In June, about 20 alums enjoyed an afternoon of visiting, swimming, float ing, etc. at a lakeside picnic for Bos ton area alums hosted by Henry Pattc:rson and Meredith Beit. The long d1stance award went to Jim Feeney, New College special projects director. On the same trip, Jim Feeney shared a pub dinner in Greenwich Village with Dan Chambliss, Bill Rosenberg, Virginia Phillips, and Bill Dudley. New Yorkers can look forward to renewed efforts to stimulate alumni networking in the Big Apple and en virons. Phillips says plans are in the works to entertain this year's new stu dents from the New York area. A party is being planned for the fall. John Esak and his wife, Karen, celebrated July 4th with about 50 novocoUegians from the Washington area at their home in Midlands, VA. We hear they had a great time. Facutty Develop ment Grants Four Receive Awards Four New College faculty members have received grants from the alumni-funded Faculty Development Grants program. The awards were presented at the May faculty meeting by Gary Montin, chairman of the alumni association's special projects committee to Sandra Gilchrist, assistant professor of biology, Arthur MeA. Miller, professor of literature, Alfred Beulig, associate professor of biology, and Karsten Henckell, assistant professor of mathematics and Computer Science. Gilchrist's grant is for explor ing undergraduate research, in cluding participation individual ly and with students in three workshops and conferences during the next year. Miller's grant is to support re search and cross-correlation of previously untapped archives of the late 19th/early 20th century intentional community in Estero, Fla., by Dr. Miller and one or more student assistants. Beulig's grant will help a stu dent to travel with Dr. Beulig to the Sixth International Coral Reef Symposium in Townsville, Australia in August. They will present the results of under water field work on the reefs in Belize conducted this summer. CNN news has recently aired a report featuring Dr. Beulig and some of his students. Henckell's grant is for par ticipation in a course with Alan Tucker, an advocate of radical changes in the traditional linear algebra curriculum. Future issues of Nimbus will carry reports from the faculty members as they complete their grant projects.

Nimbus, Summer 1988 Page7 Students Arrested, Trees Fall as Airport Controversy Continues The New College student effort to halt airport expansion has taken on two new developments. The student initiated non-profit corporation Save the Greenspace has ftled suit against the Univer sity for failure to include student concerns in con sideration of a lease for the east campus. During a non-violent protest against airport construc tion, 41 New College stu dents and two alumni were arrested on charges of trespassing. Background Regents Reject Students' Proposal on Road In March, the Board of Regents turned down the students' proposal students had no legal standing in the issue, denied their request for a hear ing and signed the lease returning the grove to airport control. On May 2, the Airport Authority or-dered the destruction of the grove. By the afternoon of that day, over 100 students had occupied the grove in an attempt to save the trees until they could pursue all their legal options. But, some 40 police officers, some with riot gear, a SWAT team, and a dozen sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the scene. Two alumni and 41 students were arrested on charges of trespassing. By nightfall, the grove was cleared for the road. On May 5, work on the dis puted portion of the site was stopped by a 10-day stay or dered by the District Court of Appeals in response to motions filed by the students' lawyer. Courts to Decide New College students have been opposing air port plans for expanded operations for the past year and a half. The con troversy started when air port engineers sited a multi-lane egress from the new terminal com plex through land leased from the airport by the university. Part of the disputed leasehold was earmarked for a $1.3 mil lion recreational complex and part was the site of a natural oak grove. With the help of a lob byist, a lawyer and a trafMary Kelly Parlett was once of the first students arrested. Few of the other a"ests provided as much drama as Kelly's. As we go to press, the ar rested students and alumni are preparing for their trials, the earliest of which is now scheduled for August. Stu dents are waiting for a Court of Appeals ruling on their right to standing in the case and their request to infic engineer, New College students were able to enlist the support of the USF administration in planning the road's realignment. The compromise alignment preserved most of the grove, allowed for regulation-sized playing fields and facilities and ac commodated airport traffic. Student hopes were dashed, however, when the campus administration reversed its position and recommended the Board of Regents approve the land swap as proposed by the airport and approved a modified lease. Stu dents ft.led for an administrative hearing -a state inquiry to establish fmdings of facts and conclusions of law. Funds for the legal action were provided by generous alumni sup port and private community donors through Save the Greenspace. Bulldozers Topple Trees Students Arrested In late April, the chancellor of the State University System declared the validate the lease signed by the chancellor and to remand con sideration of the lease back to the Regents.

Page 10 1988 Graduates* The alumni association gained 85 new members on May 20 when New College's 1988 graduates received their diplomas. By way of introduction here' s news of what some of them did before leaving New College and where they are headed Traci Ardren '84 will be a graduate stu dent in anthropology at Yale. Professors there were impressed by her study of the role of women in Oassic Mayan society. Traci con cluded the leadership role played by women in the time period from 600 to 1000 A.D. was more significant than previously assumed. She says the Mayan society is fascinating and just as complex as feudal European society. Ken Baker '84 will enter medical school at University of Miami this fall Sarah Blanchard '83 is working in Sarasota County's planning department. Craig Bolin '83 will be a student at University of F1orida this fall. Bill Brown '85 will be a research assistant and graduate student in economics at Univer sity of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He says he'd like to hear from other NC people living in the area or passing through. Michael Brustad '83 has become a campus director for the F1orida Public Interest Research Group in Gainesville. Laurie Cameron '8S will be a student at Stetson University College of Law. Sharon Cload '84 will be a graduate stu dent in chemistry at Yale. Walter Duque de Estrada '84 has been accepted to the medical school at Univer sity of Chicago Sandra Englert '84 went to New York to launch her career as a fashion photographer. Laura Ericson '8S is entering the Peace Corps and will probably be working in com munity agriculture extension in a Latin American country. Galt '85 is executive vice presi dent of P. Wallenberg Development Co. on Longboat Key Julie Green '84 is interning now at Univer sity of Miami's Center on Adult Development and Aging where New College graduate Meredith Miller '70 is associate director of program development. Julie will be a graduate student in clinical psychology at USF in the faU. Mary Higby '85 was the only under graduate speaker at last year's American Society of Zoologists when she presented the results of her senior thesis research on be havioral differences of isolated fish from those raised in groups. After studying the pup fish, a variety of common striped minnow, Mary con cluded the grouped fiSh were much more ag gressive than the solitary fish. This behavior is the opposite of birds and rats in the same cir cumstances. Mary, who plans a career in phar-Nimbus, Summer 1988 macology is conti nuing her re search this year in a search among other things for an ex planation of the results of her thesis research. Allen Hopper '84 is going to law school at University of California Davis. Melanie Hubbard '84 is in New York, looking for work.

Page 16 Nimbus, Summer 1988 Mission Statement (cont'd) founding, New College has aimed to be a national institution, carrying its students to the top rank of intel lectual achievement. The finest teachers should be most en couraged; the most dedicated and the brightest of students must never be held back. III. To these ends, we alumni will or ganize ourselves, visit the campus, engage the issues, speak our minds, and encourage those who want to teach and learn. We will support these principles with our energy, intelligence, finances, and words. We will encourage maximum participation for all alumni, raise money to support projects identified by alumni, support initiatives taken by alumni chapters, and monitor New College Foundation and College activities. While our methods will vary, we will carry out projects both on and off the campus, be a resource in many ways to students and faculty, and maintain our own organization to reach all of these goals. Our activities are guided by the ques tion: Is this consistent with the core principles of New College? IV. We find the idea of New College to be precious, priceless, and rare; and we commit ourselves as alumni to protect ing and promoting it.
