Jet Set in Haiti John T. "Jet" Lowe (insert), firstyear student from St. Simon's Island, Ga., is spending the independent study period inHaiti. He sent The Catalyst this photo of typical Hai .ti;;:ns before their home. Jet termed Hai'dans "without a doubt the most friendly people anywhere. 11 "In spite of their poverty," he wrote, "they really know how to have a good time with their love of music and rhythm. 11 During his stay on the island, Jet is living with a sculptor in Carrefour, south of Portau-Prince, the capital. Pair T o Sing A t Folkfests New College students, Bob Dixon and Sandi Stewart, will sing in folk. benefits this weekend. Stewart will p e r f o r m tonight and tomorrow night. Dixon will play tomorrow night only. Tonight at 8, Miss Stewart will sing at Sarasota's Garden Center in a benefit sponsored by the city's Cardinal Mooney High School. She earned a spot in the program at a tryout two weeks ago. She will be accompanied by "some boys named Stan and Jim. 11 Tomorrow night, both Dixon and Stewart will play at a hootenanny at Our Lady QUeen of Martyrs. The program, which will begin around 7:30, will be directed by Ralph Stoddard, whose father Herbert is amemberofthe New College faculty. Dixon will accompany Miss Stewart, in addition to performing on his own. Both are basically bluesbased singers. Students are invited to attend both sessions. Admission of approximately one dollar will be charged. Stoddard T oSpea k On A rt Experience Herbert Storldard, famed local artist, will be the guest speaker at tonight's Forum in the Music Room immediately after dinner. His topic will be 11 Art As an Ex perience." Mr. Stoddard is the college's art instructor, and he also is a member of the RinglingSchool of Art f acuity. His work is mainly in the abstract expressionist mode. He has worked with several New College students, both on campus and at the Art School. Mr. Stoddard also drew the nameplate for The Catalyst. SEC Elect s Chairman In Fast. Empty Session Kenji Oda was elected chairman of the SEC for the next f ourweek term. Oda's election was the only action the SEC took in a 14-minute session Wednesday. Oda was elected without dissent. This will be his second term as chairman of the SEC. He was acting chairman at the meeting, in the absence of David Alleri, whose term expired. Karle Prendergast was first nominatedforthe position of chairman, but she declined. Chuck Hamilton was then nominated. He also declined, as did Ray Enslow immediately after. At this point there was a joking suggestion to elect one of the four absent members. Oda said Bill Chadwick, who was absent, had asked Oda to decline the nomination for him. It was pointed out, however, those absent will probably be absen,t for the next meeting as well. Oda was then elected without dissent. The election. was the SEC's last order of business and the meeting was adjourned immediately after. Reports on Friday's search of the rooms for lamps missing from the .>.:udy rooms were heard. Hamilton reported nothing was found in the third court. Miss Prendergast and Tim Dunsworth reported one lamp was found in each of courts one and two. Dunsworth reported "no problem at all" in gaining entrance to rooms. Enslow asked what was decided about the rejected amendments. 0 d a to 1 d him, "They were sent back to your committee." Enslow then asked, "Sentbacktomy committee? 11 He also inquired if "SEC m->r Future Scientists also will be held ir> conjunction with the fair. students in integrating the knowledge they will have already acquired by actively examining great ideas and concepts of interdisciplinary importance in the contemporary world. Such programs are currently in existence in a few schools, and the faculty committee hopes to study some of them with the idea of finding the strong and weak points of each. Among the schools being visited are Stanford U n i v e r sit y, Reed College, the University of Chicago, Dartmouth College, Bowdoin College, Harvard University, Brandeis University, Wesleyan University, and others. The committee has prepared a checklist of questions to be looked into by all of its members in making the visits in order to be both comprehensive and uniform in the survey. Dr. Posey said that he hopes the full report to the faculty will be ready by May 1. He asked what action had been taken on last week's decision to ask Captain Styles about draining or oiling the a::oeas of the campus on which water stands. Again the reply was "Waterman was gonna do See Editorials, page 2 that, too." Oda moved on to the next item. He asked what action had been taken on last week's decision to ask Captain Styles to increase the weekly allotment of towels. The reply was "Waterman was gonna do that, too. "Oda turned the three items to Hamilton for action. Oda said yesterday he had learned. Waterman sent the memos just before he left the campus. Oda told the group he was not sure ifthememoto athle.tic coordinato1 Peter Odell (asking what hours the Sarasota swim team would '6e using the pool was sent. Hamilton told him a two-thirds vote (six assenting votes) was necessaryto amend the modes of pro. cedure and only five members were present. The discussion was then discontinued. Enslow also asked if changing the chair m an every four weeks was "confusing?" Oda wanted to know, "Why did we decide on four weeks anyway?'' Enslow responded it is "too much trouble" for anyone to. be cmirman longer than four weeks. Hamilton added, "And everybody can be chairman." Hamilton also pointed out "we can't change that now" because too few members were present. Immediately before the election Hamilton urged "Why don't we all. bone upon Robert's Rules?" Meetings of the SEC are supposed to' proceed according to the rules according to the constitution. Exhibit of Gift Paintings Opens at Ringling TolNers An exhibition of the Alfred V. and Lily S. Marx collection of works by Florida artists opened Wednesday night at the gallery of the Ringling Towers. The collection of sild:y paintings was presented to New C6l lege by Marxes. "Their gift to New College represents more than a decade of encouragement to artists. Impressed with the early aims of New College and its own e)Ctensive program in the fine arts, the Marxes presented the collection to the college where it will first be exhibited and then will become a part of the permanent collection of the college to be placed on exhibit in campus buildings, 11 said Dr. Arthur Ross Borden, Jr., Humanities Chairman. J\lired V. and Lily S. Marx long have been avid painters and serious collectors of art. The results of their efforts are evident in the collection they have presented to New College, now exhibited for the first time as a collection in the New College Fine Arts Institute Gallery. The Alfred V. and Lily S. Marx Collection has been gathered over a period of nearly thirteen years and represents a number of Florida artistswhoseworkthey both appreciated and attempted to encourage by purchase. A collection of sixty paintin'gs was presented to New College Wednesday by Mr. and Mrs. Alfred V. Marx (right). Their son, V. Henry Marx, also attended the opening of the exhibit with his wife (left). They were guided in their collectingbytwo altruistic motives: first, that unknown but talented creative artists should be recognized as they appeared; second, that small collectors of modest means should be encouraged to continue to collect. The results of their effort can be seen in the current exhibit, al-(Continued on page 2, colwnn 1)

Page 2 Editorially Speaking A Sad Joke Wednesday's meeting of the Student Executive Committee was a joke--a sad joke. We would laugh--but the laugh is on us, the students. Some of the members of the SEC have shown their qualifications for participation in legislative activites .. A few of them are amazingly lacking. For example: Bill Chadwick, second-year representative, has missed many, if not most of the meet1ngs this ferm. The Catalyst has observed his absence at the three meetings, and his absence from many others earlier in the term is attested by his fellow members. We are sure Chadwick has had good reason to be absent from the meetings. But whateverthe reason for his absence, the fact remains that he has not been fulfilling his duty as a member of the SEC. He has not justified the faith and confidence placed in him by those who elected him. Chadwick has served adequately and conscientiously as chairman of the Student Disciplinary Committee, therefore we know.he is capable of good work in some parts of our government. We suggest he confine his activities to those parts in which he serves well. For example: Steve Waterman, first-year representative, by not reporting that he had carried out the tasks assigned to him, wasted time and effort of his fellow SEC members and furtherdelayed progress on the questions. We are aware that he was concerned with leaving for the independent study period. But regardless of his personal occupations of the moment, his duty was to the SEC and his fellow students. If he i:'ainks no more than his actions indicate of carrying out instructions from the governing body on which he then he is not a good student representative and should not carry on the pretense. Waterman has expressed his lack of interest in student government to the editor personally. We ask him now, why not step aside for someone who might have more interest? These two are not the only members of the SEC who approach their duty with a lackadaisical attitude. They just happened to be at the forefront of the non-action. Equally guilty of not living up to responsibilities are their fellows who sit through meeting after meeting without saying a wotd. How can the students be adequately represented if their representative_s do not speak up at government assembl ? Perhaps some of the criticisms made in the past on the system of student government have been misdirected. Perhaps those chosen to implement that system are more appropriate targets for criticism aimed at improving the system. If the disinterest demonstrated by our elected representatives is truly representative of the attitude of the students, then for the sake of intellectual honesty and self-consistency why in the name of that mythical New College ideal don't we just eliminate student government? If students do not want student government, what absolute absurdity to continue it. If we do not want our own government then let1 s abolish it. If we do want it, then let1s make it worth having. Paintings (Continued from page 1) ready recogmzed as an important contribution to Americ.an art. Their own judgment in collecting was that the paintings should be works of merit. "After all, there are only two kinds of pain tinss:good and bad." Mr. Marx says. Delightfully vibrant, Mr. and Mrs. Marx were described by another writer as "wed to one another by love and art. 11 A New York Times writer said, ''art is their life, '' and their devotion to it early as a hobby and then later as a serious avocation, to be supplemented by collecting, is evidenced by the wide recognition giventotheirworks, by the important collections in which they are represented, and by the p:intings which they have purchased. President John Elmendo:d said, "Acceptance of the Alfred V. and illy S. Marx Collection representing works by Florida artists gives me great pleasure, both on behalf of New College and also personally. The Marxeshave exemplified what we hope to impart to our students: a constant concern for growth of the mind and spirit which keeps them able and anxious to learn throughout their lives. "New College is deeply grateful for this collection and for its meaning to artists of all ages. We intend to continue to press on students of whatever age the importance oft he arts in their lives through all the resources available to New College. "Alfred and lily Marx, by their generous gift, speak eloquently for art and, incidentally, for humanity." Organize A monthly magazine is being organized to publish "literary, political or polemical" material. Heading the organizing group are Gary Williams, Tom Manteuffe1 and Steve Waterman. The p u b 1 i c a t i on is as yet unnamed, according to Williams. He said suggestions will be accepted. He a 1 so said contributions are being sought. "We have a lot of literary stuff,." he told The Catalys. last night, 11 and we want more." The group hopes to have stencils typed the first week after the independent study period ends. The publication will be mimeographed. W i 11 i a m s said the group needs money to meet the cost of pub lishing. The Catalyst April 15, 1966 THIS IS A GAME OF ERRORS. SEE HOW MANY YOU CAN FIND. SEC Should Lengthen Chairman's Tenure Perhaps accidentally, Ray Enslow and Kenji Oda touched on an important point at Wednesday's SEC meeting. Why have the terms of office for chairmen been set at four weeks? A$ we understand it, the length of the chairman's term was set rather arbitrarily, based on vague notions that longer terms would be too much of a burden to members elected to that post and that by having shorter terms "everyone would get a chance to be chairman. t: It seems apparent to us that neither of these "reasons" for limiting the chairmanship to four weeks is valid. The sec retary of the SEC does as much, if not more, work as the chairman, and he has voiced no complaints about serving the entire year. Also, the desire to allow everyone a chance at the chairmanship is very exemplary but not very practical. There is now a lack of leadership in the SEC. Although chainnen can legally be re-elected to that position, there seems to have grown a "tradition" that no person serve two consecutive terms. Because the chairmanship is so constantly in flux, there is also a lack of continuity and organ ization in the SEC's actions. Perhaps a stricter enforcement of Robert's Rules of Order which is planned for future meetings will eliminate some inefficiency, but we feel more can be done. Namely, lengthen the chainnan1s term to eight weeks. This will enable chairmen to "finish what they've begun" and to insure greater efficiency and leadership in the conducting of the meetings. kthingsstandnow, the chairmanship of the SEC is effectively a mere ceremonial position. We are not asking specialpowersorprivilegesforthe chair, however. We simply wish to see someone take charge at each SEC meeting and see that business is taken care of as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Letters To the Editor: Who is our editor? He seems to have this tremendous bang-up on this "justice" business. Before I leave (3 hours), I want to place ants in strategic pants. Ed--you have less to say every week.

The courts will be complete with screening, back stops, and nets in place. Funds for the courts have been donated by several members of the local community, Mr. Arthur said. The court surfaces will be suitable for play in all weather. Although the exact location of the proposed courts has not been decided, they will be built somewhere on the East Campus. Construction will not begin for several weeks, but Captain Ralph Styles, Plan ning Officer, has indicated that the cowts will be completed this swnmer. Meanwhile, accordingto Captain Styles, the college has completed negotiations with the municipal airport authorities for a lease to the barracks area east of the residence courts. Pending the approval of the Federal Aviation Agency, the airport authorities will deliver a 99-year lease. There have been hints that some of the airport land will be developed as a recreation area for students. Among the possibilities mentioned are basketball facilities, a soccer field, and basket b a 11 courts. John Nash Ott's environmental light and health research institute will also be located on the property. "We expect to have the lease signed within a week, Captain Styles told The Catalyst.

Agril 15, 1966 The Catalyst Page 3 on cam Paulso11 Open House Guests Applaud Nevv College Community Some More Few Things A sampling of visitors' reactions to the recent college open house indicates that people were generally pleased and impressed with New College. It's Spring. It's I nd e pendent Study Period, Let your heart dance. Let your feelings and fancies soar on the wings of April. Let your spirits sing. Leave your door open for the Room Search Committee The cover of Time magazine the other week asked simply (it was the first time He's made the cover) "Is God Dead? 11 and this bothered me for a while and I won d ere d if I should believe them but then I decided that if anyone would know, they would 11m sorry, 42.8% ofNewCollcge, but it won' t work. It won1t happen that if you tl.lrll around and close your eyes and put your hands to your ears the spectre of structure and organization willgoaway. Perhaps it should, but it won't. So it's not at all irrelevant to be voting on a bill of rights. Because Paulson it's here and it's either our way or theirs. There's no wishing away a campus policeman with disciplinary powers. There was no excuse, then, for almost half of the school not voting at all in the bill of rights election. Some things have to be faced ... Itwasreportedthatthefilm com-. mitteehad tentatively secured Snndays and eybele for next term and if it is shown, I would suggest that even those who don't bother to stay for the movie on Sunday make the effort for this one. It's a really remarkable, truly beautiful movie, and the endinghas an overwhelming, cathartic impact. At risk of sounding repetitious don't it. When I see it again, it'll be or he fourth time ... There are some things you're really glad to know, once you find them out. Like, Independent Study Period is really four weeks long. Or that, if the test is any indication, it was a waste of time going to all those Basic Social Sci ence lectures for two terms, and that the time could have been better spent merely reading the textbooks from cover to cover ... After the defeat of the rights, I felt really disturbed. I was without privileges, without protection, left along in a sea of deadly carsl-iop rliE fOUR CORNERS of Tl-tE (ILObE .!. ..

Then I realized that I didn't have any rights before, either, and so had changed. It was a really comforting thought The Public Relations Office sent out brief questionnaires to a number of open house visitors who had signed a guest list with Deirdre Fennessy, whohadherroom on display. There was almost unanimous consent those who replied that the open house was both interesting and informative. I was sitting in the room in the third cotqt with the record player because my roommate's amplifier doesn 1t work listening to a new record for the first time and a song I especially wanted to hear was coming on but then someone carne in and said he was on some committee and people were stealing light bulbs from the record room and did I favor it being locked so it wouldn't continue andlsaid yes, yes, I was against wanlon and shocking waste of light bulbs, so lock it, but after the song I realized there were things more important than light bulbs, like having the door to record. room open at anytime So, be in a mood of forgiveness for Spring, and forgive me my un informed opinions and articles that don't quite suc.ceed, and the times I don't greet you when you pass me, and be magnanimous and allow New College a !itt leinconsistency and Sarasota a little hostility and the world its unconcern, and after a while itwillbeJuly, and nothing will really m:>tter. One of the questions in the ques tionnaire asked visitors what impressed them most about the college. Replies ranged from "the luxurious student rooms" to "the science labs" and from "the inform alit y of the students" to "the spirit of a young organization. 11 One irate person replied by saying he was most impressed by "the need for a barber shop. A great nwnber. of people-were, quite understand ably, i m pressed by the physical plant of the college. However, a significant number of visitors also voiced compliments for the students, their willingness to answer questions, and "the great potential" of the school. The most interesting replies came, not unexpectedly, in the "suggestions and comments" sectionofthequestionnaire. Some of the recurring suggestions included: conduct the open house on days when Jt would not clash with other are a events, such as the DeSoto Week or SarasotaBand concert; make sure that $tudents "dressed Empty classroom typifies the tranquil atmosphere which has enveloped the campus since the departure of nearly half the student body during the week, the first in the spring Independent Study Period.
