May 26 1967 Revision of Calendar, Billing 'Happening' Scrapped Finalizes FourYear Option Plan For Hamilton Ceremony Final details of a four-year option calendar, which orovides for current second-year students, were approved by the faculty at a special meeting Wednesday. First and second-year students will soon be asked to declare whether they wish to take the option arrangemen1 next academic year. The opt i o n plan was finalized when approval was obtained to bill students by term instead of ynarly after the first year. Another m a J or step was taken last week when the fa c u 1 t y approved the general outlines of a new academic calendar. Beginning this fall there will be only one independent study period per year. The second study period will be replaced by a one-week spring vacation between the second and third terms. There will continue to be three terms of eleven weeks duration. All students will be required to be in res i de n c e all three terms plus the study period of their first year. Thereafter, students can spread their remaining six terms of residence across two or three years. All stud e n t s must spend their final term in residence. Students may petition the to be in residence more than nine terms, but "the college's financial aid commitment normally extends to a maximum of nine terms. Billing procedures have been brokendownsothatstudents are charged 40 per cent of their total fees the first term of each year, and 30pereentfor each of the following two. The system is designed to maintain a "reasonably level" enrollment throughout the year by encouraging four-year students to be off campus when first-year enrollment is likely to be highest. In all cases "payment on or before the due date is a condition d. continued enrollment at the College." Students who leave the College, voluntarily or not, before the end of their payment period will be Pundit Is Speaker On Situation Ethics A self-styled anthropologist and social ptmdit will speak on "situation ethics" at tonight's Forum after dinner. George K. Storm of Sarasota will give a talk entitled "Must Moses Be Right, Always, Forever? or How to Break the Law and Win. 11 Storm is a former college teacher who went into business and did well enough to retire at 49. He has spent many years studying various world cultures, and he is now study ing so-called "hippie" culture. He is vice-president of the Folm dation for Spiritual Understanding. On the local scene Storm is president of the Friends of the Sarasota Library, a trustee of Jefferson Center, treasurer and former president of theFriendsofArts and Sciences, director on the Boards of the Sarasota Art Association and the Mental Health Association, and a member of the Board of Governors of the Allied Arts Co1mcil. a 11 owed refunds only for board costs (in the case of first-year students) or for the food portion of board charges (for upperclassmen), on a pro rata basis. All scholarships and loans will be administered on a term basis and applied on the same percentage basis as college charges. Each student will normally take the qualifying exam in his major field at the conclusion of his fifth term in residence. The completion of four independent study proJects will continue to be a requirement for graduatioll, and some students will be expected to use the long summer vacations for independent study. Members of the Class of 168 whc desire to take the fourth-year option must declare their intent by June 15. The C 1 ass of '69 will have until July 1. Course schedules for the coming year, which could affect decisions on which terms to spend in residence, will be distributed soon, as will detailed explanations of the fourth-year option plan and calendar. Plans for a "contemplative happening" for commencement have been abandoned in favor of a more conventional ceremony, although some kind of creative activity at Hamilton Center will be retained. --Some activity during the day on Saturday, July 22, possibly including a luncheon for faculty and parents. --At 8 pm Saturday "something creative and imaginative" outside Hamilton Center, followed by a short address by the President and the handing-out of diplomas. A buffet for graduation guests inside Hamilton Center will follow the ceremony. Degree Eligibility Commencement committee chairman Diana Shiphorst said the idea of a "creative happening" at the beach was abandoned because of difficulties of transportation and seating. She said a majority of participants at Wednesday's meeting favored Hamilton Center as a site for commencement. Shiphorst said a meeting of the committee was scheduled for Monday, atwhichtime final plans will hopefully be made. Shiphorst Depends on Thesis In a meeting Wednesday, the joint student-faculty commencement committee decided graduation will consist of three parts: Shiphorstsaid she was peiSonally doubtful about the transition from the creative to the more formal part of the exercises, and stated the blending of the two elements of the exercises could be a difficulty. Seniors who do not tum in senior theses by June 12 will not be eligible for a degree this year, according to a resolution passed by the faculty Wednesday. Theses must be tumed in by June S to be eligible for an honor rating. Accord.ingto Vice President Paul Davis, the faculty made the move because some seniors will appar-Miller ently not have their theses ready by the originalJlme 5 final deadline. Assistant Dean Arthur Miller told The Catalyst the faculty extended the absolute deadline because no particular sanctions had been stipulated against those who failed to meet the original one. Miller said it was stated at the faculty meeting that students who misstheJ1me 12 deadline will have to wait till next summer to get a degree, and no opposition was raised. Apparently, onereasonthe line was not extended further than it was is that oral defenses of theses is scheduled J1me 5-30. The rest of the testing schedule includes: first-year comprehensives, July 10-19; second -year qualifying re-exams, July 17-19; language tests, early the week of Exam Material Due June 13 Material to be used in the translation section ofthe baccalaureate exam July 13 should be submitted to the appropriate language instruc tor by July 5 for approval. Third-year students should select material of at least SO pages from their respective fields of specialization or a field closely related. The exam will be one hour long and will consist of a translation from the foreign language into English. Dictionaries may be used. July 10. Written parts of senior baccalaureates will be scheduled at the convenience of each department. --A senior dinner with the Presi dent, scheduled for sometime before g ra du at ion weekend, July 21-22. SEC Approves $720 Allocation For Buffet and Band at Dance A request by the Student Activities Fund Committee to use $720 of the fund for the student dance was approved by the Student Executive Committee Wednesday despite some dissent. The request for the money was made early in the meeting in a notetothe SEC and later by SAFC chairman Kenny Misemer. Approval of the request leaves $100 in the fund. Library Prize Winner James Frisch was awarded the $100SeniorLibrary Prize last weekend for having the best personal library owned by a senior. Frisch was chosen by members of the Library Advisory Committee in a special nm-off Saturday with Dennis Kezar. Kezar, Tom Todd, and Charles Hamilton were given honorable mention. Third-year student fohn Cranor reported $200 of the money will be used to pay the band, the Galaxies of Tampa, and the rest to provide the buffet. Cranor said the affair will be catered by the John Ringling Towers, who offered to provide a buffet at a cost of $2. 75 per person. This is less than the amount charged by Servomation Mathias, Cranor said. In ad dition, the John Ringling Towers will tpovide a room for the dance without charge. Students will be charged $1.00 admission to the dance. (Originally, the dance was to have been held at the Landmatk Hotel, after which Hamilton Center was chosen as the location for the affair. ) Following Cranor's report, second-year representative Jerry Neugarten and SEC Chairman Tom Jarrell questioned the necessity of a buffet at that cost. Jarrell said he believed students did not want a buffet, and said he would send out a questionnaire to determine student opinion. There was also discussion of the need for an ice machine in the shack bar, with the suggestion that it could be purchased if the entire $720 were not granted. The SEC then approved $200 for the band and tabled the request for the-.additional money. Misemer appeared later, however, andsaidthe Social Committee could not afford to have the matter tabled, since arrangements needed to be made the next day. He said students expected a buffet, and had enjoyed last year's dance at which a buffet was provided. Following Misemer's statement, Neugarten said the total requested should be approved. The request was approved 3-0, with two abstentions. Jarrell said he was op posed to the motion. Misemersaidanymoneynot used for the dance would be returned to the Student Activities Fund.

Page 2 Editorial Campus Activism The peace movement on campus has either made tremendous progress or sputtered dismally in the past month,. depending on one's point of view. The Sarasota <:=omm.lttee of Conscience on Vietnam seems to have lapsed mto hlbernationandhasdonenothingfornearly two months; the sota Committee to Stopthe War has been extremely :-ctlve, however, but its accomplishments thus far di:ff1cult to measure. The SCCVwas an apolitical organization aimed at aiding civilian war victims on both sides of the Demilitarized Zone. Because it concerned itself with public relations and gain ingthe support oftownspeople, it lacked the ingly radical but cohesive spirit. o! SCSW fell tim to a fatalistic apathy when mit1al comml.nllty reactlon was poor. The SCSWhasbecome a multi-purpose group that includes an anti-draft faction as well as a specifically anti-Vietnam War orientation. Now, according to some of its members, SCSW intends to take over the fwctions of the dormant SCCV and begin raising funds for war victims. The group is wafraid of stirring controversy,. and it .has already drawn the ire of townspeople by agamst this nation's policies in Vietnam on WSAF radio, Two members of the group appeared on Open Mike today, and WYND in Sarasota has. t? gtve them exposure by allowing them to write editonals for that stat1?U Support has been forthcoming from the Negro community, and SCSW has made arrangements to teach social classes at Booker High School in Newtown about the Vlet nam War next week. The committee would to start discussion groups on Vietnam on campus, and 1t plans to participate in the nationwide Vietnam Smnmer demonstration. Skeptics will ask what the committee has t.o ending the war. The answer is, of course, little_, if anything. SCSW members admit they have a tune convincing would-be "peaceniks." that can be done before the 168 elections, They have certainly had an impact on local opinion, but mostly to harden the pro-war sentiment. The committee is aiming its anti-draft campaign at youth, andNegroes in particular, and some success here would not be surprising. 1t is uofottunate SCCV has in spirit been engulfed by the mote mUit:mt organization, for the S'QCcess of SCCV depends on divorcement of its appeal from politics. we can't blame SCSW for taking action. Profowdly act1v:ist, they can't stand to see a cause fail by default. LeHers College Cosmetic Competition To the Editor: We, the undersigned, distressed by the limited participation of the lady members of the New College community in the recent competion for the best personal libra:ty, and wishing to encourage and re ward endeavor in an area in which f em a 1 e students are peculiarly equipped to excel, announce our donation of a prize of Ten Dollars ($10. 00) for the lady student of New College with the best collection of cosmetics. It is our hope that this Competition will be instrmnental in achieving within the College communtty a greater emphasis on certain aesthetic values hitherto relatively neglected, at least until such time as the Trustees act to institute at the College a major in Home Economics. In awarding the prize, attention will be paid by the Judges to the taste and catholicity displayed in selection, as well as the suitability of the collection to the complexion and physical attributes of the competitor, rather than to the financial cost of the collections submitted for consideration. The Catalyst Ray B. Enslow Bombing of the North: U.S. Political Weapon? OnFebru:uy 28 the United Budd hist Church of Vietnam issued an appeal to all belligerents for a cease-fire on May 23rd, the 2, Sllth birthday of the Buddha. On April 8 General Ky agreed to a 24 hour cease-fire--a gesture prompted by American influence, according to Tran Van Dinh, former Acting Ambassador of Vietnam to the U. S., writing in the May 13 New Republic. The National Liberation Front upped Ky's ante on April 27, by announcing that their forces would maintain a 48 hour cease-fire; after all, Jesus got two days last December, and it is a predominantly Budclliist count:ty. So far as I know, North Vietnam agreed to nothing. Meanwhile, UThant was proposing that the May 23 truce be extended indefinitely, and The undersigned, assisted by two lady graduates as professional advisors, will act as judges of the Competition. Notice of entry should be given to Keith Armes at the Division of Humanities by 5 pm Thursday June 1. Adjudication will take piace between4and6pmonFriday, June 2. Faculty wives are not eligible to compete. (Signed) Keith Armes Michael von Guttenberg (May 26) reports that "There is widespread speculation in Washington that Johnson will seize the opportunity .. to announce an extended bombing pause" as a step toward negotiations. Johnson, however, "is under intense pressure from his milita:ty advisors to continue the air offensive" says Time. As has happened once or twice before, the milit:uy advisors seem to have been successful in winning the heart and mind of the President. Not only did Johnson not extend the bombing pause, but there is some question as to whether it ever occWTed at all. The plans for the cease-fire (which, for some reason, Sail!;On chooses to call "uni lateral") included a cessation of "all offensive ground actions and bombing in both North and South Vietnam" (The St. Times, May 22). ADd on May that newspaper reported that "the bombing pause over the North lasted only 24hours." But then there's this sto:ty on May 23, telling about an attack by North Vietnamese forces on a U. S. infantry unit within minutes after the truce was supposed to begin, which goes on. "Meanwhile, U. S. warplanes streamed over North Vietnam and and smashed at targets near Hanoi, ignoring the cease-fire. mbing of Sai gon? No, it means that he should stopsendinghis troops and supplies to aid the Viet Cong, thus leaving the latter at the mercy of continuing American "infiltration" in the South, That is, he should abandon his part of the war. Buffet Cost Excessive SO was there a bombing pause over the North, or not? On the other hand, what difference does it make, really? In any event, nothing of lasting significance did, or could have, come from the trace, because it involved only a one day pause. Hanoi has said reportedly that a permanent cessation of bombing in the North is a necessaxy precondition for any negotiations which might lead to peace. A brief pause will not do. But if we must stop the bombing altogether in order to get negotiations started, then why don't we try it? Why, in other words, did Johnson fail to take the advice of UThant to "seize the opportunity" of the cease-fire and extend the bombing pause indefinitely? Sadly, it has become quite obvious in recent months that Johnson is not interested in negotiations, nor even in peace except through an American milit:uy victory. That this means an eventual confrontation with China in a land war on the Asian continent, apparently does not dissuade him. We have already seen the opening moves in the effort to persuade the American people that a war with China is inevitable; Mr. Rusksaidas much in therecentissueof Look. One can nothelpbutwonder whether something of the sort has been in our leaders' minds all along. Graduation Comment To the Editor. The words of Thorsten V e b 1 en written sixty-eight years ago slir vive as the most cogent remark about graduation ceremonies: "This particular item of learned ritual, it may be noted, would not only commend itself to the leisure-class sense of the fitness of things, as appealing to the archaic propensity for spectacular effects, and the predilection for antique s y m b o li s m ; but it at the same time fits into the 1 e is u re -class scheme of life as involving a notable element of conspicuous waste." Lots ci love and kisses, (signed) A Boared Observer To the Editor. Six hundred dollars is an awful lot of money to spend on a buffet. The whole business of this SAFC appropriation makes me wonder about the entire value of the Stu dent Activity Fund. Each student is hit fifteen dollars at the beginning of the year as a condition of enrollment. Having lost this money into the Fund, the student tends to think of the money as no longer his own, Unlike tax refunds, he cannot get cash from the fund-only "benefits." And these goodies tend to be quite simp 1 e things, with the exception of the Big Bash --the annual dance. Why the people who want to attend a dance can't pay five dollars a head to go, instead of taxing every student regardless of his interest, seems a little unclear. The price of admission at present is only a dollar because the students Wio plan i:> go seem to think they've already paid for it (so the theory goes). But the Justifiable two hundred dollars for a band is only onethird the cost of a completely superfluous buffet dinner--and this makes me highly suspicious .Especially when the SEC is presented with the recommendation that it approve the appropriation, and told that it must vote yes for the dance in toto (buffet and all) or the dance cann 0 t be held at all "because there are commitments" that must be made the following day. Thus the SEC has no chance to see if the students at large think a buffet is a necessary part of a dance. !think that next year's returning and freshman students ought to be given a choice about whether they will contribute t'teir fee to such frivolities. (signed) Tom Jarrell SEC Chairman The pat answer is that Hanoi is insincere: if we stop the bombing, then they won't really negotiate anyway, so we'll have gained nothing. This in itself, however, is no answer at all; if Hanoi is bluffing, then it ought to be easy enough to call their bluff and prove to the world their insincerity. No, what prevents us from stopping the bombing is the fear that we will lose an important advantage, or that the Comm'tmistswill gain one. Just what that may be, though, is obvious anyway--that the bombing has had no significant effect upon the rate of infiltration, unless it has been to encourage the North Vietnamese to increase their aid to the Viet Cong, and to send their own troops into the South, (In Febru:uy of 1965, when we began regular bombing raids on North Vietnam, the Defense Department estimated that there were about 400 North Vietnamese soldiers in the South, There are now perhaps as many as SO, 000.)

May 26, 1967 cam !llfirie I Hurricane on There was some rain this week, but only a little. It was cooler-the breeze meant something, finally, and Florida released its tight, stiflingholdon us, for awhile. At night, the clouds spm1 circles aro1md the moon, and when they covered the moon, some showers fell. Then the wind blew in gusts. It wasn't enough. We needed rain, rain that fell with a cruel battering, ma.kingthe tiles treacherous, shaking the fronds of the palm trees as if in fury at their calm, bright dancing. We needed rain because it was dry and the sand blew in clouds. But we needed it for another reason, because the weather, what the sun does, what breeze there is, has far more control over our moods and feelings than, perhaps, we would like to believe. Whenlsaw the clouds aro1md the moon, I remembered our hurricane. It was only a year ago, and itwasourfirst hurricane. We watched for it, mapped it, waited. Waited while the radio wamed us solemnly and the sky gt'CW dark and the bay turned white and boil ing. Then the rain began, and to be out in it was like walking through a lake, it was so heavy. We'd bought candles and were ready when the lights went out. We stood in the palm court just to be there, just to be standing in the mid d 1 e of a hurricane, getting soaked, being pushed and pulled by the wind that ripped the palm fronds in the court and tore down the less sturdy trees outside the dorms and the big oak beside the first court. And we went back to our rooms, wet, and listened to the wind rattle the frames of the balcony door, waitingfor the door, YOU CAN' T G E T BETTER FOOD ANYWHERE ON CAMPUS Servomation Mathias finally, to break, watching the rain come under the door frame, soaking the carpet. And we listened to the radio to tell us how Paulson bad a storm it was, and were disappointed when it failed to meet our expectations, and passed just a little too far from shore to be a really violent one. The next day, the sun was shining and the ground was littered with branches and whole trees. We'd stood in a hurricane, touched int i m at e 1 y the most primitive of forces, and it was grand that we'd stood in the rain and shouted at the top of our lungs to challenge the how ling of the wind and laughed and run through the angry storm. We needed the hurricane--in some strange way, this meeting with a mindless fury, this blending with it, gave us hope, made us happy, was a relief and a blessing. It was so great that there was nothing we could do to control it, only exist in it, and yield ourselves up to it. This is what we did, and it was a grand storm. Not long afterwards, I think, was a crisis, one of the standard, manufactured crises we've come to expect from time to time. Even that hadsomethingtodowith the hurricane--we'd tracked water in the rooms, it seemed, and didn't help clean up afterwards. Perhaps they were a little ashamed at the power of a storm, of wind and rain, to affeet our spirits when they, at times, could not. Perhaps something ran away with all of us, made us run away with it, just a little. But even now the sand still rises in clouds, and we need rain.

ARMANDS KEY JERRY GINNIS Your Host The Catalyst Page 3 'General Education Implies Intellectual Focus on Life By KENJI ODA What in the world is general education? Dr. William Arrowsmith of Wesley an University had just concluded a comprehensive criticism of higher education in America, and the Friday night Forum crowd was listening smugly to the ensuing standard discussion of general versus specialized education. But when Assistant Professor of Philosophy Dr. Gresham Riley rose to ask the speaker exactly what everyone was talking about, a few p eo p 1 e squirmed uncomfortably and waited with Riley for Arrow smith's answer. It was obvious not everyone was satisfied by evening's end, and it is certain some members of the audience came away as skeptical as ever of the concept of general education. This is lmfortunate, for general education is, or at least should be, a synonym for liberal education, which is one of the basic educational concepts on which New College was founded. The one major obstacle to an \Dl derstanding of the concept of general education is a frame of mind that is predisposed to conceiving of the body of knowledge as consisting of a series of discrete departments. T h us w h en someone defines general education as simply nonspecialized education, the average college professor will immediately equate general education with dilettantism Indeed, from the professor's point of view, that which is not a specialized education quite logically must be an education that sacrifices educational depth for breadth. To such a mind, a student who does not "major" in a particular field is left only with the altemativeoftakingafew courses in each of several fields, in so doing familiarizing h i m s elf with many fields but actually bowhag What this view assumes Is that the existing departmental distinctions arc o f the nature o f Natural Law and n o alternative c ompartmentalization of know l edge is valid. Astudentwhochooses not to specialize in one of the traditional majors might be said to be "majoring" in an identifiable intellectual discipline that defies the tradition a 1 labels and necessarily cross e s traditional departmental lines. The focus of leaming be-comes not political science, or sociology, or philosophy, but "power, "love, or the like. But the point is not simply that new groupings and labels of the body of knowledge are necessary; rather, it is that such artificial groupings can only inhibit education in a humanitarian society. The day has long since passed, if it ever existed, when man could even approach knowing everything there was to know. The trend to specialization is one reaction to this reality. By allowing individuals to become experts or virtuosi at a particular task, the sum for society is a whole, a whole that is rapidly expanding. But also as a result, the broadly based, truly liberally educated manwhocan understand the interlocking nature of specialized knowledge and specialized society has become a rarity. The American concept of efficient decision making is a pressure group concept. Everyone must look out for what he knows best and is deeply interested in, and a balance of competing interests will somehow work out in the end. There is no institutional justification in our political system for the truly moral man. Most educated Americans recognize and to some degree abhor this situation. and the common answer has been to introduce core programs, distribution requirements, and the like into some parts of the higher education system. The theory is that in such ways specialists-and no one wants to be a dilettante--willhavehad some contact with "foreign" departments and will have a wider perspective from which to study his own field. But this is not general education. The greatest motivation for leaming is the fact of being. There arc students who do not come to college seeking to become a nuclear physicist, or a philosophy professor, or any other type of pro fessiOD&l. but m.tead come to .ftDd Jmowledge, uadezeandfng of exis tence and the world in whJch they exist. For such students, tradit ion a 1 d epartmentalizations of knowledge are meaningless; the y will study what is meaningful t o their particular intellectual strug g les. The focus is no longer literature; it is no longer "love;" it is life itself. Thus, it is meaningless to tell these students that while breadth is necess;uy to a liberal education it is not enough. The concepts ''breadth" and "depth" aretothem and their educational goals inapplicable. There is a fear widespread general education will lead to the disappearance of the specialist and his highly technical skills. There is nothing inconsistent, however, between having an intellectual and moral focus on life and being a master at explaining Kantian theory or at hamessing nuclear energy. The implication of general education is that specialized knowledge will be more meaningful and its significance better understood and appreciated. Tremendous difficulties lie in the way of transforming our colleges into general education centers, of course. Departments would hav e to be eliminated, and a liberallyeducated teaching community must be developed. But these are practical problems, and practical problems hav e a way o f b eing solved once it is discovered they must indeed be solved.

Page 4 SEC (Continued from page 1) In other business, the SEC approved the installation of a phone in the Reception Center for local calls by students. Jarrell said So cial Sciences Chairman Dr. Rollin Posey has offered to pay for installation of the phone, with the monthly costs split by the students and administration. The SEC approval of the installation was contingent on the cost to the Student Activities Fund being $2 a month or less and students havingtopaynomorethan half the cost. Misemer said the SAFC had already approved the allocation since it would be less than the $25 the SAFC can spend without SEC approval. Assistant Dean Arthur Miller said the office of the Dean of S+;udents would inquire into the lack of snack bar services contracted for, if the SEC approved. Miller said he brought the matter before the SEC because of the motion passed three weeks ago that the snack bar should not be opened until Estep was satisfied with the equipment. SEC members said the motion had been passed to protect Estep from unduestudentpressure, and did not object to such an investigation. Miller also heard SEC requests foc pad
