Volume III Number 38 Trustees' HN EL DORF J p SIDE! TS LORiDA a3571 Published by Students of New College, Sarasota, Florida Committee June 9 1967 Modifies Site Plan Plans to build new dormitories and an academic complex on the Palm er (West) Campus were approved at a joint meeting of the Executive and the Architectural and Plant Committees of the Board of Trustees last Friday, but there was opposition to building them on an txis the Pancoast According to minutes of the meeting, the trustees decided "The bay vista should be preserved by constructing the main academic complex along the north border area of the main Palmer camp us, rather than across the central section as proposed." The official site plan submitted by Pancoast, Fcrcndino & Grafton of Tampa was referred to the joint committee by the full board at its spring meeting. The basic decision reached at Fri day's meeting, according to President john Elmendorf, was that the plan should be completed "with all due haste," The college would like dormitory housing for 250 on the Palmer Campusbythefall of 1969. As soon as the site plan iscompleted and approved in its entirety, an architect will be retained to prepare plans and specifications. According to informed sour c e s, construction should begin no later than the coming winter if the deadline is to be met. The initial housing units for 250 should be sited "approximately" as indicated on the Pancoast plan, the trustees voted. This would place the dorms on the bayfront in the southern section of a tract that adjoins the northwest corner of the main Palmer Campus and extends along the bay in front of the Up lands subdivision. The trustees agreed with Pancoast that the academic complex (library, classroom, labs and faculty offices) should be concentrated, but they felt it would be "more dis crete" along the north border of the campus, as well as preserving the bay vista. Contempt Confused? SoweretheSJC and the prosecution at Wednesday' s "trial" when Lee Crawfort attempted to enjoin the proceedings. Citation Draws Appeal; Decision Pending on Nav Trial The Student Judicial Committee will hear an appeal of a contempt of court dtation against econd year student Luke Salisbury tomorrow at 10 am and in so do:ing will decide whether to t l.lln over a pend inR intervisitation charge against Salisbury to the Dean of Students Office. If the SJCdecides to make a second attempt to try Salisbury, the trial will be held Sunday at 1 pm in the teaching auditorium of Hamilton Center. A trial for Salisbury scheduled Wednesday evening was disrupted by an attempted injunction of the proceed:ings and led to the con-tempt ruling against Salisbury by presiding judge Dale Hickam. The SJC and the student prosecut o r s office presently planning details of a trial, in case there is one Sunday. New venires are being prepared for selection of a jury. to go into chamber with the judge at the presiding judge' s discretion. The prosecution was restricted to two assistants, however. Music Festival Opens Swlday Wednesday' s trial was disrupted seconds afteritwas called to order when first-year S;:udent Executive Committee representative Lee Crawfort read to the court an injunction signed by him as a member of "a superior court. TJ1e question about assistants was raised by prosecutor Jerry Neugarten. Only third-year representative Rachel F:indley opposed the motion as passed. N eugarten 1 s assistants are Frank Cook and Bill Powell. After passing that resolution, the SEC dissolved into an appellate court to hear Todd :ppeal to dismiss charges against Salisbury, or at least grant him a ne.v hearing.

Page 2 E d itorial De-Fus i ng the Mid-East As serious as the Arab-Israeli war has been, it is only a manifestation of a fundamental, far more serious fault in the world political structure. As of yesterday, it appeared Israel had achieved its maJor obJective--to free theGulf of Aqaba from Egyptian blockade--and Israel seemed to feel secure enough to agree to a cease-fire. But even as the world's diplomats negotiate to make a cease-fire a reality, they must realize they would soon have to begin a complete re-evaluation of the politics of the Mid-East. A "holy war" cannot be settled by compromise. So long as two intensely nationalistic and intensely hostile blocs are forced to share a border, there can be little hope that a peace would be more than a one. Unless steps are taken to reduce tensions in the Mid-East or to make those tensions unexpressible in armed conflict, each ceasefire will set the stage for a subsequent conflict in an endless succession. We have already seen, perhaps, the first decades of a new hundred-years' war. The responsibility for defusing the Middle East lies pri rr.:arily either with Israel or with the Arab states. Indeed Nasser has already taken steps to make his defeat again only a temporary one. He has told his people Israel wiped out his air force and crippled his armies only with the extensive military aid of the Americans and British. The Arabs, quite ready to believe him, will smoulder at this alleged twist of political intrigue and wait for the next opportrmity to cast the infidel Israelis from their midst. The Israelis, on the other hand, are tragically incapable of relieving the tension in the present situation. She fights, she wins, but short of conquering the entire Arab world she cannot avoid sharing hostile borders. The key to stability in the Mid-East lies with the great powers of the world, acting individually and through the United Nat ions. First, it must be clear that to arm both camps in an attempt to achieve a small-scale balance of terror in the area is irrational and self-defeating. Even Russia, despite its bluster, will agree if it can do so without appearing to abandon the Arabs. Granted that total disarmament is politically impossible, the United Nations must police the area and guarantee such incidents as the blockade will not be allowed to spark holy war. The easing of tensions will require real compromises on the part of the Israelis, and a real change of attitude on the part of the Arabs. Israel holds all the aces politically and militar"ly n t e Mid-East at this point, but to make full use of the cards would only embitter the Ara bs. Repatriation of Palestinian Arabs, re-drawing of boundaries, etc., are all areas in which compromise will be necessary if the Arabs, and more importantly Russia, are to accept the peace. A new leadership is required among the Arab states, but Nasser's latest failure will probably destroy prospects of Arab unity for several years, and the world can hope that by that time more pacifistic leaders will have ascended. The solutions are by no means easy ones, especiallysince United Nations eJ'fectiveness depends on accord between the U S and the U. S S R. The silver lining in the latest Mid-East cloud is that both nations have been forced to seriously re-appraise what have been dangerous policies in the oldest power keg of the Cold War. The Catalyst GOOO ABOUT A COKE'? June 9, 1967 War More Than a Circus To the Editor: The war between Israel and the Arab states is a very serious and lamentable conflict. And it is very disconcerting to see this carnage observed by American citizens and New College students as a circus. We seem to have ignored the fact --as stated by Mr. Milt Pilot, the recent Friday Forum speaker, among others--that "War is Hell." Let us rememberthat beneath the astounding victories of the Israeli Army lies a fo1.mdation of death. The armies have destroyed many homes and churches. The exact nufnber of people who have lost their lives or their homes is impossible to calculate but we do know that many people have been the victims of the political and diplomatic games--played by the leaders of the Middle-Eastern co= tries--that preceded and caused this war. America has done very littleto avert this war. Claims have been made that the United Nations has proven by its actions in recent weeks that it is an ineffective agent to resolve intem:tional disputes. These claims are certainly true. The UN has not been effective because the United States and the USSR have been more concerned with national diplomacy positions than with the fact that the war has been hurting many people on both sides of the conflict. Vietnam Summer Activities These nations must realize that the lives lost in the Middle East are more important than their dip lomatic position, and they must 1mite to work through the United Nations.

Vietnam Summerisaproject aimed at catalyzing "grass-roots" political action in over 500 key American communities. Through local referendums, debate, hear ings, and town-meetings, it is hoped the great mass of the American electorate will admit to past mistakes in foreign policy, specifically the Wa: in Vietnam, and force a f1mdamental change in those policies. On a more practical level, the project aims, like the Goldwater movement in 1964, to oust Johnson in the coming national election by swinging a majority of the votes over to their as yet minority view. VietnamSummeris a project resemblingFreedom Summer-1964 in that the action is nation-wide, heavily financed, politically liberal and pace-setting, s t a ff e d mostly by college students on summer vac :tion who think comm1.mity action is more important than earn ing extra cash, and personally endorsed by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The meeting discussed the practical problems of action in the Sar asota and Bradenton comml.mities and on the New College and Manatee ]lmior College campuses. It was felt that the Anti-Draft Union Shaughnessy should come out with a strong draft resistence petition in the near future. A state-wide Legal Defense Committee to advise and defend the rising number of conscientious objectors and draft resistors is seen as necessary to the effectiveness of such activity. It was felt a statewide base of support could adequately finance such legal costs. It was alsodecidedtoshow "Time ofthe Locusts," an award-winning anti-warfilm, on the New College campusinthenearfuture, in hopes of interesting the students here in forming a pacifistic Angry Arts happening. I will attend a Training Institute ofyietnam Summer in Cleveland, Ofuo, J=e 18 to 25. The Institute will deal with the various practical problemsof anti-war organizing in different parts of the nation and the media. It was generally agreed that summer action in Sarasota would have to be minimal in view of the outflow of people at this time, and that students should be encouraged to worldor their home-town peace organizations during their swnmer vacations. Levin expressed delight with the comparative academic freedom and diligence of the New College students but was concerned by the political apathy reflected in our tmresponsiveness to the anti wa: and anti-draft sentiment that is sweeping most l.arge campuses. Only then will the United Nat ions be an effective international body and not a field for diplomatic games. We as individuals must look be yond the superficial image of this conflict as a circus and put pressure on ourgovernmentto end this conflict through the UN and to insure that the United States will establish its prime concern as peace, and work unceasingly to see that it is obtained.

As a general rule, she told The Catalyst, she will allow one bad check to a student per term. Af ter his second, a student will have to make cash purchases only, and the store will no longer serve as "an extension of the Sarasota Bank & Trust" for him by cashing checks. Crawfort reads injunction at trial as defense and part of venire looks on. Culak said students have written the store 21 bad checks in the last two months, and the situation is "out of hand, Contempt (Continued from page 1) When Findley and others were skeptical, asking if all present at the hearing had lost their memories, Todd replied the SEC charter impliesthe British-American constitutional system, with its legal formalities. The SJChad rejected similar motions by Todd Tuesday, No More forums Todd argued to the SEC Thursday the SJC Tuesday was not legally constituted and that the prosecutor had of his own admission lied to the court. For Rest of Term Neugarten replied he did lie but that it involved a "very trivial 11 issue. Observers at the hearing said N eugarten intended the "lie" as a joke. No Friday-night Forums will be scheduled for the remainder of this term, according to Information Officer Furman Arthur. When the scheduled trial time approached, the SEC rejected Todd's motions and advised him he could appeal after the trial. Members of the college community are welcome to arrange for guest speakers independently of his office, Arthur said, but he indicatedhe should be notified in such situations. At its regular meeting the SEC heard Stauffer excuse himself from sentencing, if necessary, as well as ruling on grounds he possesses personal knowledge of the case.

ON THE TRAIL She noted she is willing to hold checks a few days if a student is not certain what his account is, but the weeks' delay in re-processing bad checks ties up money. Culak said some students have written as many as four bad checks to the store this term.

Page 4 The Catalyst June 9, 1967 Cooper: War's l1111.,ral But Perhaps Justified Five Students Join Campaign To Unionize Gtrus Workers All wars are immoral, according to New College's newly appointed special co\Ulselor, but some wars may be justified on non-moral g;l'OWlds, The Reverend Horace N. Cooper of Sarasota told The Catalyst in an interview last night he thinks agression maybe viewed on three levels --the biological, the intellectual, and the moral. On the biological level, Cooper said, force and agression appear to be inevitable corollaries to the evolutionary process. On the intellectual or social level, a limited use of force seems necessary to "assure the orderly adjustment of individuals to the so ciety." This is the level at which most political problems are resolved, and "the motive here is ultimately to secure justice, but this is achieved with difficulty." On the mora level, the use of force is "self-defeating and consequently interdicted." ECO Needs Typists For Draft Edition The East Campus Other needs vol=teertypists to complete stencils for its special issue on the military draft, according to ECO collator Tom Jarrell. The next ECO will devote some the draft, Jarrell said, including articles taken from various magazines and journals and some original polemics by New College students. Photographer's Paradise Cooper, who served as a chaplain in both World War II and the Korean War, called war "a layer cake composed of layers of crime iced over with sin." He noted some conflict is inevitable when "there's only so much pudding" and some try to get some try to get more than their "fair share." Thisis an =forttmate fact of human nature, at the animal level," he lamented. On the intellectual level it is "eminently possible" that one side in a war would be more justified in fighting than the other would be. Cooper distinguishes between defensive and aggressive wars and says the former are "more justifi able." As for the Vietnam conflict, Cooper had this to say: "The first efforts of the U S. 's to aid S. Vietnam were clearly justifiable. ln the course of the conflict--and this invariably occurs on the second level indicated above--secondary causes and effects have diminished the clarity of our intent, and complicated the means by which it is to be implemented. "As a result, the justice of our actions, once apparent, is now questionable." C o r r ec t 1 s t Y ear Option Deadline First-year students who wish to take the fourth-year option must notify the College Examiner's Of fice which terms they will spend in residence next year by June 30, The deadline is not July 30, as listed on the option forms. Second-year students have until June 15 to make the option choice. By JON SHAUGHNESSY Two representatives of the Agric u 1 t ural Workers Union spoke Tuesday night to a small group of New College students about the work being done in the Tampa to Orlando citrus belt. Their plans are to lay the foundations for a strong union movement among the 26, 000 men and women who pick the fruit and petform all the other labor on the citrus orchards. five of the six stud en t s at the me e tin g agreed to work for the labor unionizing program this summer. They are third-year student Anna Navarro, second-year students Steve Hendricks and Hilary Block scm, and first-year students Don Aronoff and Jon Shaugnessy. They will receive $10 a week wages and will be provided with board and keep while on the JOb. They will spend most of their time researching land tit 1 e s to citrus lands around WinterHaven, check ing to see which of the big citrus com pan i e s owns which farms. Other work will include the myriad details connected with building up power among the workers themselves--newspaper editing, clerical work, setting up Community Service Centers and three labor service centers, and so on. The general situation of the farm laborers is much the same as in the rest of the nation--low wages --about $9 a day during the harvest, h o us i n g in terrible shape, health care in such bad shape that many are disabled from worldng, exploited by crew chiefs, cheated out of Social Security, and denied unemployment benefits. About 10, 000 wori
