Volume III, Number 3 Published by Students of New College, Sarasota, Florida September 23, 1966 Pondering the details of the transcript controversy at Tuesday's academic committee meeting are: 1. to r.: Rick Stauffer, Dr. Roger Griffin, Dr. Peter Buri, Dr. Gresham Riley, and Dr. John French. SEC Urges College To Fill Fountains The Student Executive Committee passed without opposition Wednesday a resolution urging the college to take action to remove the three fountains in the resi:ience courts. Calling the fountains "a menace to life and limb" and saying they detract "substantially from the aesthetic appearance of the residence courts, the resolution "strongly urges the col-lege to take immediate action to remove these hazards and eyesores." The resolution s u g e s t s this be accomplished 'by filling (the fountains) or otherwise converting them to planters or other similar structures. Last!' at.uday a third-year fell into one of the fountains and had to be pulled from the water because a short in the lighting system of the fountain temporarily paralyzed him. It was reported at the College Council meeting earlier Wednesday the problem has been referred to a representative of the college architect. NC Coeds To Star On TV Talk Show A thirty-minute full color television program featuring two New College students will be shown at 2 pm tomorrow over Tampa Channel13. Third-year students Maureen Spear and Kathy Dively are interviewed by Producer Robert Gilbert on a variety of topics which begin with the girls' interest in ballet. Academic Committee Hears Faculty Evaluation Views The student academic committee heard five faculty members' personal views on the current transcript controversy at its first regular meeting Tuesday evening. Dr ArthurBorden, Dr. Peter Buri, Dr. John French, Dr. Rodger Griffin, and Dr. Gresham Riley explained to an audience of nineteen students how they stand on the issue of what part, if any, of the term evaluations should be placed on the student>' permanent transcripts. Alternatives discussed ranged from not including seminar evaluations on the transcript at all to inc 1 ud ing detailed evaluations for every class in which a student is enrolled. Presently term evaluations for each student are kept on file in the college examiner's office; no part of them is put on the official transcript, however, except at the student's request. Some students at the meeting expressed fearsthat permanent evaluations based on seminar attendance and participation would amount to making class attendance compulsory. Riley, who introduced the resolution to make "some part" of the term evaluations part of the permanent record at a faculty meeting last year, sad he did not view the 1$ a "big ottick" "r a "club." He cited the following reasons for his support of the motion: ( 1) "Se minar participation should not seem to be nor in fact be less important than comprehensives"; (2) "I don't think the evaluative process is purely an intemal feature of the learning process"; (3) "Since the transcripts inc We indirectly some indication of seminar performance, that indication should be made as clear as it can be." Griffin concurred; "The fundamental question is the 1 all or nothing' aspect of transcripts. I cert a in 1 y favor a transcript that is representative of a student's per formance here. 11 Griffin s t r e sse d that his main concern was that New College is not divorced from the rest of the academic world and must therefore be as explicit as possible in representing the performance of its students to graduate schools, employers, and the like. Borden agreed that "the college owes a debt of honesty to the outside world, but he argued that students must give their consent before any part of the transcript is released to a prospective graduate school or employer. Frenchindicatedhe was not convinced that near-compulsory class attendance is not one of the basic (Continued on page 4, column 2) Campus Will Host Grad Conference Representatives from five graduate schools from various parts of the nation and representing various fields will be on campus Oct. 2-4 to participate in a conference on graduate placement. The participants were chosen because large numbers of students here have interest in their fields, according to Earl Helgeson, assist ant to the pret1dent. He added that an attempt was Helgeson made to get a good geographic distribution, as well. Those coming are: Dr. Francis E. Bowman, actingdean, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Duke University; Dr. Lyle McAlister, director, Center for Latin American Studies, University of South Florida. Also, Dr. WarnerG. Rice, chairman, Dept. of English Language and Literature, University of Michigan; Dr. Ray Saalbach, director of admissions, Wharton School of Finance and Commerce, University of Pennsylvania; and l)r. George Schrader, chairman, Dept. of Philosophy, Yale University. They will arrive on campus Sun day evening, Oct. 2, for dinner. Monday rooming the representatives will talk with the division chairmen "to get a broad view of what1sgoingon." During luncheon and the rest of the day they are scheduled to meet with the rest of the faculty. In other business, SEC chairman Steve Hall reported he talked with Pianning Officer Ralph Styles "who made it clear and final--no new refrigerators after the snack bar is operating. Too Many Workers Make Job Shortage After a brief meeting with the administrative staff, they will eat dinner and meet with students. A "reasonably informal" forum between the graduate school representatives and third-year students is scheduled to follow in the Music Room. Hall said Styles indicated those students with refrigerators would possibly be allowed to keep them after that time. He said "tentative" hours for operation of the snack bar have been set at 10 am to 10 pm. Snack bar service will be prov1ded by Servomation-Mathias, Inc., the college food-service contractor. According to the chairman, Styles is planning on the snack bar and dining area to be completed in six weeks. There are more students who want campus JObs than the college has JObs and, as a result, some upperclassmen will not be re-assigned to JObs they have held before, according to fin an cia 1 aid officer Joe Hall. Hall said yesterday some students have already been notified they will not be employed by the college this year and others will be notified soon. Some of students who have held JObs and who have skills which are "indespensable" will be "phased out" of the Students The SEC heard a report from the food committee on a conversation with Styles regarding certain student complaints about meals. Styles cited "very inadequate faWfl.flng cilities" and asked students to "bear May Enter Contests with us'' until Hamilton Court is completed, food committee member Tom Todd reported. Assistant Dean Arthur Miller suggested the Student Disciplinary Committee re-issue its policy statement on guests on campus. He expressed concern about some of the "hangers-on" who seem to be frequently on campus. Expert Karate To Give Exhibit A Karate demonstration will be presented Wednesday in the Music Room along with an explanation of the requirements to start a Karate club on -::am pus. Mark Smith, who was awarded the black belt in 1956 from a 600member all-Japanese judo club, will conduct the demonstration beginning at 6:45pm. Smith is currently an instructor of Karate at the Sarasota YMCA. New College students may enter two writing contests, one for an essay on "The American Indian--His Contribution to American Society" and the other for an original short story. Prizes for the essay contest total $175 and those for the short story contest $100 with a chance to compete for $1000. Sponsored bythe United Churchof Christ Council for Higher Education, the essay contest is open to students enrolled in the 31 colleges related to the Council. The srort story contest is sponsored by the Cle:1.rwater Chanteroftl:e National Society ot Arts and Letters. The winner of the $100 prize there will have his story entered in competition for a National Career Award of $1000. l:'rd:essor 1Jav1d Vy.l

Page 2 Editorials Creeping Conventionalism--Another Inch? There are several levels of argwnent on the question of adding term evaluations to students' permanent records: arc evaluations themselves valuable and, if so, in what form should they be recorded and for what purpose should they be recorded. It cannot be denied that "evaluation" in its broad sense is a vital part of learning. If astudent does not receive some evaluationftom his instructor, he car>..not be certain how he is performing as a student. From this, it is even logical to say that evaluations on a slightly more formal basis (such as we have now) serve similar useful purposes. An adviser can check a student's academic progress in several areas and thus gauge his total per formance. This, too, is beneficial to the student. It is obvious (from previous yariations in evaluations), however, that even this relatively informal system is not without fault. This leads us to the really difficult problem of deciding the proper form for any evaluations, whether for a permanent record or not. Letters, numbers, sentences, paragraphs, or pages? The possibilities are apparently endless. The faculty have not been able to agree yet on this point and the students are little help. This condition is difficult but tolerable in a situation such asnow exists in which only a minimal importance is placed on evaluations. It would be exceedingly more difficult and intolerable in a situation where these evaluations directly affect a student's career simply because of their imperfect state or even because of their very existence. Even though we agree the classroom situation is vital to of learning, if evaluations for the permanent record arz to be used (or abused) even with the best intentions to coerce students to attend classes, we are against them categorically. The faculty members who have e_xpress.ed_them.selves on the question have, to a man, demed th1S 1S thel.I' rr.tention--and we do not doubt their sincerity. We are a larmed, however, at the great potenti-al for abuse which exist<> in so many of the systems we have heard advanced as ;"-:;:;i1: le ways of adding the evaluations to the record. It maybe all right for us to be evaulated by the teachers who are here now because they would be the inventors of the system and understand what they meant it to be, but it will definitely not be all if these faculty members are replaced by some who do not understand what the system was meant to be or if new faculty members are added who are not quite so impressed with "the New College ideal. 11 The mo p atab e (or perhaps, the ea un a a ) sy -tern we have heard advanced so far is the one by which a certain nwnber of satisfactory evaluations are required before students are allowed to sit for the various examinations. If this were to be the only use to which the evaluations were to be put, we can see little harm in it. We do not favor, however, the transmission to graduate schools of detailed "transcripts. 11 This we oppose for two reasons: if the transcripts are bad, then their deleterious effects on a student's career are obvious. If the transcripts are good, students will be tempted to work merely to amass good transcripts. It has been pointed out that more and more schools across the country are switching to the pass-fail system. Ithas also been said that this "revolution" will undoubtedly have an impact on graduate schools. New College, it seems, can ride the crest of this wave if it will just refuse to bow to "tradition" for a little while longer and not be forced into sending transcripts of its graduates to grad schools. With a proposal such as this, where the potential for harm is so great, we can only urge those who are in the driver's seat to change lanes very, very carefully. Fill the Fountains LastS aturday a student fell into one of the fountains in the residence courts and came very close to serious injtuy or perhaps even death because of a malfunction in the electrical system of that fountain. If it had not been for the presence of mind and prompt action a fellow student, who herself received electrical shock while rescuing him, a calamity could have OCCl.UTed. If the fountains were objects of great aesthetic value, there might be some barely conceivable reasonfor keeping them in their present condition and risking a recl.UTence of a potentially fatal accident. They are, however, almost always .repulsively green and slimy with algae and disintegrating cigarette butts and are, therefore, not worth maintaining even without the serious risk. The elected representatives of the students voted unan imously Wednesday to urge the college to take immeaiate steps to remove these hazards and eyesores from the very center of student life by filling them with sand and dirt and converting them to planters. We heartily endorse this resolution and add our voice to theirs in asking the college to assert itself and immediately rid the students of this danger. According to the proctor on duty at the time of the accident, the fact that the same fountain was electrically charged had been reported by him some ten days before the accident occl.llTed. We can only conclude that the responsible members of the college staff waited too long to look into this report. We hope they will not wait any longer. The next student who falls in may not be so lucky. Letters NC Cess Pools To the Editor: Is there anything that can be done about the unsightly, unsanitary, unaesthetic juxtaposition of garbage cans (often overflowing) and water fountains (often filthy)? It seems like very poor architectural planning to have these two so close together. Also, a thousand pleas on bended knees to the powers that be to keep the fountains from becoming cess pools this year. (signed) Patricia Sanderson Remember Wheneryl White

September 23, 1966 The Catalyst Page 3 on Paulson Riley Says Evaluation Proposal From Sarasota with Love Part Not Inconsistent With NC Ideal It started out just like any of the routine assignments I'd had in the past as Secret Agent 68 of New College. There was a note in my mailbox from the man I knew only as ARB, instructing me to come to his o ff i c e as soon as possible. I changed into my bathing suit and headed for the secret room, which was located under the shallow end of the swimming pool. Unfortu nately, the room was empty, and, explaining to the lifeguard that I'd really only wanted to get wet, I hurried off to find' someone who would know where the office was. I didn't have to ask, however, be.:. cause a new student who saw me emerge from the pool informed me that the headquarters of New College 1s ultra-secret intelligence department had been moved next to the laundry room. I thanked him, and hurried off. I found the office, and entered it to find sitting behind the desk the man who had, so many times before, sent me on p e r i 1 o u s missions, causing me to meet danger face to face, risking my life. I was about to turn around and walk out of the office again when the familiar voice stopped m e "I'm glad you found the office, ARB said. "Me too, s i r I replied, "but how come a new student knew where your top secret office is located?" "Well, Orientation was very good this year. "Why did you have to move from the room under the shallow end of the swimming pool?" "They needed it for classroom space. !was impatient to know what my assignment would be. "What's up, sir?" I asked. "Not your Comprehensive scores. Why don' t you come to class once or twice this year and find out what my name {eally is?" "Well, I m going to be pretty busy but I 'll try to fit it in sometime. "Good. Now, here1swhati called you in for. You may not believe this, but the college has received a letter from a group of the lea ding citizens of Sarasota, saying tha t they are truly and sincerely interested in the work of New College in improving the q uality of higher education in America, and would like someone from the college to speak to them about this remarkable school, as a gesture of goodwill and friendship to the people of Sara sota." "That sounds incredible. "That was my first reaction, but I think it may be sincere. "It could be a trap, though. "I know. That's why I want you to make the speech. You'll know what to do if there's any funny business. "When is this meeting?" "It's tonight, in an abandoned warehouse. They say it's the only place they could find that1sbigenough. I think it' s legitimate. There have been no sabatage attempts lately by any of the Enemies of New College. "But what about. Hamilton Court being so far behind schedule.? Couldn' t that be "It's not behind schedule. The real completion date is April, 1976, so it' s a little ahead of sched Ule but no one would believe that kind of efficiency, so we keep it a secret. "Bytheway, whatshouldi wear?" "I would say formal dress." "Does that mean I have to wear shoes?" I asked. ARB generously took off one of his own and sent it sailing at my head, but I moved quickly and dashed out of the off ice, and it crashed harmlessly against the door. 1 walked onto the makeshift platform and t oward the podium amid polite applause.

Operating ten months a year, it At this point several members of the audience seemed to stand up. I thought it was a little early for an ovation, but thought nothing more about it until they had rushed onto the platform and grabbed me, pinning my arms behind me. Thinking this was a reaction to my speech, I said, "You really ought to let me finish anyway." The men didn't reply, and I found myself being dragged down from the platform and through the vast hall. As we went, I saw that the seats were entirely empty. It was a trap, after all! 1 was taken through a door in the rear of the hall and into a dimly lighted room that seemed to contain only achairin the very center, The men strapped me securely in the Chair, then left the room.

I am U, chief of KOOS The propos a 1 currently before the faculty regarding the addition of term evaluations to students' permanent r e c or d s is not inconsistent with "the New College ideal" according to Professor B. Gresham Riley. Riley said for the proposal to be inconsistent there would have to be something in the structure of the college opposed to evaluations. In an interview yesterday he said evaluations are "internal" to the learning process. "Learning is in part dependent on critical feedback." Riley maintains New College al-and seminar situations, Riley said, "are a necessary part of learning. "I don't blame students who are in seminars outside their major f i e 1 d s for sort of dropping out of those seminars" before comprehensives or qualifying examinations. He said since the examinations are the only things which determine whether a student stays at the college, it is only natural for students to spend their time p:e paringfor those instead of me.ing obligations in other seminars. Repeating that a student is not required to take seminars, Riley said he felt this use of evaluations would add to the importance a student will place on these other c ours e s (outside the maJor area) "because they are important for his continued existence here. He said he has "no firm opinions" about how the evaluations should be written or recorded. "But I'm certainly opposed to any attempt to use A, B, C, etc. In reply to a question about the way evaluations (which are not a part of the permanent r e cord ) are presently handled, Riley said some evaluations are "less meaningful" than othen;. Consideration of the question is "not to the detail state" yet, he said. According to Riley, the faculty has m a d e no decision on the res o 1 uti on which was intro duced by Riley and two other faculty members. He said a committee o f faculty members will be appointed t o c onside r the q u es tion as s oon as the faculty completes its organi za t i o n for the caning y ear. Students May Fish At Reduced Rates It was even worse than I'd feared. 1 was in the hands of Keep Out Of Sarasota, the dreaded terror organization in the city! I was determined, however to show no fear. "Gla d to meet U, "I said politely. Riley ready has evaluations, not only in the term eva 1 u at i ons but in the criticisms of papers written in connection with seminars and in evaluations of independent study proJects. Thus, he concludes, having e valuations is not inconsistent with "the New College ideal.

The voice went on. "As you may know the complete destruction of New College has long been one of the primary purposes of this organization. We admit we have been unsuccessful in the past, but we have hope. As a matter of fact, our operatives report you are making excellent p r o g r e s s in destroying yourselves.

The meeting will begin in the Music Room at 6: 30 pm. Students who did independent study projects with the Peace Corps in Guatemala and Costa Rica last year will present a brief description of this experience and outline the qualifications a n interested student should meet, according to Carol Worby, one of the students. She said it is important anyone interested in such a prOJect, "especially" for the NovemberDecember study periods but also forthe March period, begin thinking about it now. Contact must be made with the Peace Corps directors in Guatemala, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic in order to find site assigniiEnts for the students. Mrs John Elmendorf, who has been appointed consultant on Latin American affairs for the college, will continue to coordinate proJeCts and explore the possibilities of still more relationships between the college and Latin America, Carol said. Citing University of Florida Ph. J? candidates doing field research m Latin America, Carol said N e w College students could obtain appointments as ass1stants 1n such research. Those unable to attend the meeting Thu rsday but who are interested in the proJect should communicate with Mrs. Elmendorf or Carol for information and further details.
