President Elmendorf addresses students in the Music Room. Elmendorf Announces Decisions In an addr<:'ss tostudentsWednesday evening President John Elmen dor-f announced several recent ad ministrativt policy decisions. The first part of the president's address was a report of last Saturday's meeting of administration and dcpartm ent heads. Among the issucs discussed at this meeting were study at other campuses, tuition rates, financial aid, and college publicity material. According to the president, students who obtain faculty approval to study at school or abroadwlll be given as much financial assistance as possible. Ideally, he said, tudents will study elsewhere bet we en the secondyear qualifying exam and the end of the first course term of the third year. He added that students who leave. New College for a full year or longer will not receive financial aid from the college during their absence. Full details will be announced after discussions with the Board of Trustees. Dr. Elmendorl reported that, due to limited resources, the college cannot provide financial aid for more than three years. Also, he commented that there would be some positive. correlation between a student's perlormance and his financial aid. Those pres c n t at the Satu.rday meeting reached no agreement on the subject of increased controls for first-year students, but they had an "interesting" discussion, said the president. On thc subject of the college catalog, Dr. Elmendorl expressed the view that it should be a mixture of "the ideal that ought to be and the reality that is." He did, however, admit that there was too big a gap between the two and reported that attempts arc being made to bridge it. ew College, Sar-asota, Florida February 25, 1966 Johnson Budget Drops Student Loan Program The Johnson administration's proposed 1966-1967 budget has m ade no provision for the continuation of the N ational Defense Student Loan Program. According to Joe Hall, Financial Aid Officer, "This means that as of this moment there will be no funds available for loan to needy students through this program in the 1966-1967 academic year and thereaf(D J.!.Lc-. ?Iii Council i' Student ConCern For More Study Suggests One-Hour Cut In lntervisitation Rules Members of the Cl,Jlege c uncil expressed concern Wednesday that students are net studying as much as they should and urged increased stude1" interest in the matter. President John Elmendorltold the speci8l meeting that "practically every faculty member maintains that students arc not working enough. "As a basis for consideration of BaUghman Res CJ n s mend that the SEC shorten intervisitation by one hour. If adopted, TruStee Po S 1 t .1 On this would mean that intcrvisitation would end at midnight on weekdays and 2 am on weekends. Dr. George F. Baughman, founding president of New College, resigned Wednesday as trustee and as executive officer of the New (College) Foundation, a post which he has held since May. Dr. Baughman's resignation came in a letter which said in part that his action was prompted by "my acquisition of the world famous Sarasota Reserve Seats Now For Sebring Race Advanced ticket orders for the Sebring 12 hour endurance race, Sat urday, March 26, will be placed next Friday, according to athletic coordinator Peter Odell. Reservations should be in to lai.m by then. Price for Saturday admission and bus trip is $5. SO. Seats on the bus will be reserved for students only until Tuesday, when they will be available to faculty and staff. The college bus will leave the East Campus in time to arrive at Sebring about 8 am. Mike Mather will drive the flatbed truck to Se bring the preceeding Thursday to serve as a meeting place and viewing platform for spectaors from !lew College.

Dr. Baughman In a telephone interview yesterday, he said, ''The number one place in my heart is for New Col lege." He added that the college is in good hands and that he left it with 11 every best wish. During March, Dr. Baughman has a commitment to work with the Navy on a classified assignment .rie and Mrs. Baughman later in the spring will visit Eng I and in response t.:> an invitation from the British government. Members of the committee repeated!}' emp: 1asized that this recvmmendation is not made as a punitive measure but as an &tempt to encourage students to study' more and to encourage student consideration of the problem. Vice-president Paul Davis termed the proposal "an aid to academics." Dr. George Mayer, secretary of the council, said, "Here is an opportunity. It'sno screaming solution, but an opportunity for students to carry the ball." Dr. Earl Friesen said, "It is an encouragement to students who could perform better." President Elmendorf said the earlier end to intervisitation would provide'1those people who have trouble disciplining themselves a better chance." The recommendation VIlAS adopted after much discussion of the overall inteiTelatcd problem of student discipline and performance. Chuck Hamilton pointed out that action at the last meeting defining intervisitation as a "primary fLmc tion" of the council was not witlti. the power of the council and should be considered void. The cotutcil can only ascertain which of : .he (Continued on page 4, column 5) Upon receiving official notification of this news from the Office of Education, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, President John Elmendorl released this statement: "It is the intent of the college to do all in its power to see that no student is forced to leave because of the change in the government loan program, and I believe the Trustees will share this feeling. However, the sudden need for an increase of possibly 5% in operating costs creates a very serious problem not subject to quick solution." The discontinuance of this pro gram will affect millions of students throughout the nation. New College's total loan request for the academic year 1966-1967, includ-Joe Hall ing both extensions of existing loans and new loans for the incoming class, would have been approxi mately $120 thousand. The school has already sent telegrams of protest to various government officials in Florida and Washington. "According to our democratic process," said Mr. Hall, "the legislative branch can write into a budget funding for any particular prOJect which has not been requested by the administration. The college urges that -all students who need NDSLP funds to continue their See Editorial, page 2 ed uc at ion next year write to their parents and have them, as well as the students themselves, write to their state congressmen, urging that funds be provided for loans to college students through the NDSLP." The NDSLPwasstarted in 1958 to provide students funds for educationa I purposes and especially to encourage the science-oriented.

Page 2 Editorially Speaking Congress Will Listen The national administration's decision to discontinue the National Defense Student Loan Program is, for several reasons, extremely unwise at this time. It had been planned that the NDSLP, a product of the Sputnik scare of 1957, would be replaced by programs within each state instituted by the state, with the aid of private capital and federal interest subsidies, under the Higher Education Act of 1965. Although a handful of states have put such programs into effect, it has been estimated that a minimum of two years will be necessary for most of the other states to follow suit. Apparently, the federal government has overlooked the timefactorandis satisfied with what is on paper. However, this oversight leaves vast numbers of students without an im mediate substitute for the NDSLP as a means of financial support. Whether the reason is oversight or something worse, the fact remains that students, including many at New College, are in dire circumstances. There is an answer, however. As constituents, students and their parents have the right and the responsibility to express displeasure at this action to their representatives in Congress. Congress can, and will, modify the administration's budget request. Since this is an election year, Congressmen will be most receptive to the opinions of the public. If students will express their feelings to those who will approve or modify the budget and ask their parents to do the same, the the NDSLP maybe reinstated for the vital transition period. A Night a t the Opera The Catalyst Letters to the Editor Chairman Explains Discipline Procedure cedure for the committee. Third-To the Editor: ly, the committee will in the fu-As it appears that a large number of students are uncertain about the methods and actions of the Student Disciplinary Committee, I feel that I should offer some explanations. First, no student has had action taken astainst him, or even been discussed specifically, y the SDC without either prior notification or actual p resenc e a t the meetings. Secondly, t h is pro c edure of prior notification is b e coming an offic.tal method of pro-ture have a regular day, time and place of meeting. These meetings are open to any student. Also, a more formalized procedure has been introduced. If you do not already have copies of it, they will be available soon. Those things that I have mentioned above are some of the expressed concerns of students. More important, I f eel, are those con cerns dealing with the actual philosophy of t h e committee. The SEC transferred this authority to the SDC. There is no mention of the Turn au Playe r s Give Fine SDC in the Modes of Procedure. The committee is responsible to the SEC for all action taken. Any truly severe punishments (social probation or recommendation for expulsion) require the specific approval of the SEC before they can be effected. The SDC is merely removing the burden of disciplinary matters from the SEC as a group. The SEC still has very close contact with the SDC as two members of the SDC are also (as stated in the rules governing the SDC) members of the SEC. As the ultimate aim of the SDC is to act for the SEC in disciplinary matters, Ifeel that the remaining members should be appointed by the SEC and not elected directly by the student body. The SEC, not the SDC, has authority in matters of student discipline. Because it is a committee created by the SEC, the SDC must be responsible only to the SEC if it is to rema:in within the existing Modes of Procedure. The student body, of course, can remove any member, or members, of the SEC by recall, and more directly, can petition the SEC to remove any members of the SDC that they feel are not fulfilling this function. I feel that, in order to have sufficient freedom of action, the SDC should be responsible to the SEC, not the students. Direct election of the non-SEC members of the SDC would remove disciplinary control from the body which is responsible for it, the SEC. Also, and here I speak for the SDC as a group, the number of members Relax Backstag e B efore Statel y 0 by Tom Manteuffel Germont (convincingly played by r--Vol. 2, Number 20 Feb. 251 1966 Published weekly by students of New College (except for three week.s !rom mid-December through the fi.n:t week in January and six weeJ
February 25, 1966 .; cam s on The Paulson Poll With everyone making surveys of student opinion on discipline and conduct, I decided that it was only fair that I make my own informal survey of the student body. My editor felt the same way. "Why don't you make your own informal survey of the student body regarding discipline and conduct?" he asked. "Is it because you want for your readers the same intelligent, sensitive insight that characterized my o t h e r valuable su of student discipline?" I asked, modestly. "No, il' s either that or a full-page picture of P au 1 son the Socia I Science faculty. 11 Heartened by this expression f confidence, I set to work immediately. Proceeding by the scientific sampling methods I knew only too well, I stopped the first person I saw. He was standing in the palm court, spraying the trees green. "Why weren't you in my last dream? 11 I asked him. "I have to do this 11 he said "There' s a student riving today. "Do you think something should be done about the noise level in the courts? 11 I asked him "Why, no, I don't think it's a probelm. 11 "Then it' s very quiet in your part of the court?" "Are you kidding? There's one constant party next door from 9 pm to 4 am. I can1t even hear myself think. "Then there is a problem. When do you sleep?'' He looked at me in disbelief 11 During the day. When do think?" M9ving on, I met two students busy digging a tunnel under the walkway construction. They explained that they were doing it in memory of a fellow New Collegian who met a oi n leaping over the wall to his Porsche. I asked one of them my question. "I'm conducting an infonnal poll," I began. "Is that why you're wearing that SARASOTA !fllwft Mak 'It habit aot 111 _..ioa 1219 ht 5trHt 9154217 Wild Lifo from Every Continent "'\).., & Adi? ... P.

Now, do you think intervisitation hours are the cause of a high noise level in the dorms?" "I would think just the opposite he said. I went to the other student. "What do you think of student discipline? 11 "I don't know, "he answered, I've never tried it." "Well, do you think there should be a proctor in the dorms?" "I believe that if the faculty thinks they need one, they should get one. A lot of them are still quite immature, you know." The next student I ran into didn't even excuse himself, or help me up from the ground. He seemed very unsteady on his feet and slurred his words as he spoke. I asked him, "Do you drink more than the national average? 11 "Of course not," he seemed to say, "I'm just a social drinker." Indi eating the bottle in his hip pocket, I remarked, "I don't see anyone else. "Well, I hate people, "he replied. So far in my sampling, I had not encountered anyone dissatisfied with any aspects of discipline. To be absolutely fair, I wanted to interview at least one griper. I found him in the third court, drafting a nasty letter. "How do feel about student conduct?" I asked. "It's absolutely disgraceful. As I say in my letter, something has to be done. Why, there are regular orgies that go on around me regularly. There'slaughing and shouting and screaming and loud mU5ic and dancing and alcohol and just awful carrying-on. They'd better stop this kind of thing right away or else." "Or else what?" "Or else invite Mr. Mike Mather, Assistant to the College Examiner, points out some of the intricacies of the New College Sociogram, a three-dimensional representation of student association h a bits. Mather constructed the Sociogram from data collected through individual questionnaires. To Ready Boats In Three Weeks According to athletic coordinator Peter Odell, all three sunfish and the pram "hopefully" will be operating within the next two weeks. Mr. Odell also said that the motor boat is now being kept at Lowe's Marina, off the Tamiami Trail south of Whittaker Bayou. for the sailing lockers are ava1lable at the Reception Center. After sailing, Mr. Odell said, students should leave the boats with mast and rudder in place, the sail wrapped in the mainsail sheet, the plywood rain cover under the sail, and the cockpit drained. He also requested the return of a dagger board. Faculty members may reserve the motor boat through the Reception Center.

It was 4 in the afternoon. A halfdozen or so kids came in, instru ments in hand. There was a trum pet, a flute, bassoon, drums, and bongos. Someone set up a tape recorder. Then they began to play. When it was all over seven hours later, it was like coming back from a little bit of Birdland. afternoon and evening, aspumg student musicians went to town in the residence court jamming for six hours (with ; break for dinner). What started out as a of 5 or 6 kids developed mto a full-blown session with a dozen people playing and the entire student body listening (not all of them by choice.) I n .the course of the evening, the or1gmal group was joined by two guitars, an alto sax, and three horns. Being one of those "aspiring musicians, I can attest with all sincerity and feeling: That, brother, was a blast. We played and played and played so long that everyone was hurting t:J_te end. There were shot lips, rmgmg ears, notched and ragged fingers, sore wrists and ankles. We didn't really know that many songs. We just played the 5 or 6 songs we knew about a dozen times each ("Summertime," ah !). What really made the thing was the presence of all those wild, crazy people who came in and listened and made noise and had a good time. At first it was fun; then it turned to excitement. If you listen to the tapes, you can hear these crazy people shouting to each other and to the cats who were playing. It's almost scary. BAY MOTEL and APTS.

P a g e 4 February 25, 196 6 Basketball Bankers Catch It College Will Hold March Open House Whangd'poot'nawah ew College will hold a campuswide open house from 1-5 pm on Sunday, March 20, for the citizens of Manatee and Sarasota Count.ies. by Phillip David B unning In the OJibwa tongue, a Whangdepootenawah is a disaster--a sudden affliction which strikes hard, and Wednesday night, the National Bank did indeed catch a disaster. The Whangdepootenawah in this case comes from Manwah and is named Tom Lesure. The 61 3" Lesure used his height to good advantage as he poured. in an awesome total of 38 points in leading the ew College 69ers to their second consecutive basketball victory--64-37. Not. only did Tom outscore the entire Bank team, he set a 69erscoring mark in the process. The previous high mark was held by Larry Alexander, and was set earlier this year at 26. Wednesday's action started slowly but picked up midway in the third quarter. The 69ers jumped off to an early lead, but then fell behind 4-2. They rallied to lead at the end of the first quarter by a score of 12-7. The second quarter saw the 69ers lengthen their lead despite the fact that they had lost the services of star forward Larry Alexander due to a severely spramed ankle. Lesure assumed a dual role and played and scored enough for two men following Larry's inJury. It wasn't until the third quarter, however, that the vaunted 69er offense really came to life and the rout began in earnest. By the end of that quarter, Coach Pe ter Odell had c!eared the bench, and the second team played the rest of the game. Lesure obviously led the New College scoring and completely dominated both backboards in his finest effort of the season. Craig Bowman also turned in his best effort as he stole or deflected several passes rebounded well and contributed six points. P layer-coach Odell had 7 points; guard John Cranor snared runner-up scoring honors with 8 Dan Haggarty came off the bench t o replace A lexander and scored 2, as did A l e xander befor e his injury. Roy Van Vleck scored 1 point, and although Bill Chadwick did not score, he didn't get any points.
