Thanksgiving Holiday Early Edition Inspectors Check Mailboxes Two postal inspectors were called to campus Tuesday rooming by Director of Personnel and Purchasing, Walter Pucttc, to investigate the opening of all the student mailboxes by a group of students Sunday night. The inspectors, who showed their credentials to Secretary of Studctt Policy Office, Lorraine Sponheim, reporter Paul Adomites, and Stu dent Executive Committee Chairman, Michael Smith, were con cerned that the student mail be handled securely. Puettc called the inspectors b cause his office is responsible for mail distribution on campus. After tilling with Puette, Sponhcim, Adomites, and Smith, and viewing the new mailbox situation in the snack bar, the inspectors met with 1\!Irs. Dilsey Brewer, Assistant to the Director of the Student Policy Office. Mrs. Brewer assured the men that the opening of the mailboxes was not malicious in any way. As one of the participants in the mailbox opening put it, "It was an aesthetic act. Mrs. Brewer said that she felt certain the mail was being handled with as much concern and care as is possible, and that no students' rights of privacy with respect to the mails were being violated. Mrs. Brewer stated that care would be taken that no other incidents can parable to the one Sunday night would occur. Puette seEmed very concerned that the post office be aware that New Cdlege is doing a good job of handling the mail in accordance with federal regulations. When she was asked if she felt that the location of the mailboxes in the snack bar was less secure than the previous location in the dining hall, 1\!{rs, Brewer told the inspectors that she felt the mailboxes were more secure in the snack bar, since there are more students near the mailboxes all the time. She said that she felt any students who tried to violate the righ1s of another student with respect to his orhermail would be kept from so by the other students present. She felt students would "look askance" upon serious attempts to violate mail privacy. lV{rs. Brewer told the inspectors that they shouldn't wony, because the acts Sunday night were not serious in intent, and that the Stu dent Policy Office was not worried about the security in the handling of student mail. Puette said that it is important students remember that tampering with the mailboxes in any way is a violation of federal statute.

Quotable Quotes These rem arks carne from discussions to arrive at "The Case for New College" for the $10 Million Capital Campaign. Michael J. Smith: Why arc we deserving support? Well, I don't think it's the ideal method of educationfor everybody. As a matter of fact it's probably the ideal method of education for a very small minority, but I think it's a trend that ought to be supported if forno other reason than to encourage diversity. ''The point is not who is at New College but what is being done at New College; and it's evidently what1sbeingdone with fair success --which is to try to maintain an academic community of reasonable interested, able, but serious people, people interested in being educa ted." Steve Hendricks, '68: "I think if New College has a contribution to make to American education, it's the fact then, that an acade-mically c cellent education can also be a free education. D: vid Allen, 16 : "I think ve nrc reilly forced to come to terms with ou .Jnd are not gi en easy outs as far as given values either educationally, socially, or otherwise." Dr. B. Gresham Riley, Associate Professorof Hlilosophy: "The thing that has struck me (about New College) is that in a real sense the strength of the program that has emerged here in part, is not that it is innovative so much in devisingnewconccpts as such about education, or devising new techniques with respect to realiling certain ends in education, but there is a kind of return to some sort of oldfashioned ideas, back to what the nature of education is all about and also the way in which it it's achieved. '' Dr. E. David Dykstra, Associate Professor of Literature: 11 Creativity, I don't think1 can be taught --it can be allowed and encouraged, made possible but I don't think, you should go arotmd saying that we te .. ch people to be cr ative be e-use nobody can do that.

S FEA Drafts Position Papers Position statements reflecting areas of concern by Florida's future teachers have been drafted by the Student Florida Education Association (SFEA) executive committee and its State Council of Chapter Presidents. The two groups, representing 23 colleges and universities in Florida with approximately 3, 000 education majors, met in a joint leadership conference recently in Clearwater. Tom Mones, a junior at Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, and president of SFEA, cited the following as objectives: A change in Florida statutes that permits service in the Peace Corps, VISTA, or other similar national service organization to be an acceptable reason for deferment of teacher scholarship loans. ( At present, repayment must be made either through teaching service in Florida or in cash. Post ponement of loans is granted only if the graduate is serving actively in the military or is totally disabled. l Oglesby BY ONE I TALLAHASSEE Thoughthefirstnight we arrived in the middlt> of Carl valuabl e speech on "The Plight of American Soc1ety'' and then suffered through a decidedly banal pa "ty, we were able to filter various benefits out of the State SDS Conference, most of lessons being learned from Oglesby.

Page 2 Editorial ISP Forty-two first-year students will be leaving campus to do their first independent study projects. Wccannotfeelthat this is wise. New College's emphasis on independent study, particularly in the area of the seniorthesis, makesitnecessarythat students be able to work on their own on a specific project. Yet the faculty is letting one-fourth ofthe first-year class leave, without having Seen whether these individuals can handle work on their own. With the second ISP during the year gone, this means the faculty will not be able to tell until one year from now whether some students can work on their own initiative, with the aid of faculty and resources, A student who is not used to intensive independent study could lose himself easily during this first ISP period, and if he has no faculty to help him (i.e., if he goes off campus) he might well complete his ISP sometime during second term. We still feel that some students should be able to leave for their first ISP. It is occasionally important that people "get away11 from the New College atmosphere. Also, the availability of resources for some ISP' s makes it almost imperative that they be done elsewhere. But the first ISP is an important time for a ew Cell egc student. The rigor of the first term is broken in a significant way, for a significant purpose. We would hate to feel that some students lose out on the chance to prove themselves at New College because the faculty made it too easy to leave campus for a first ISP Le ters Grapes TO THE COMMUNITY: Some of the students at New College want to help the farm workers of California in their strike against the big growers there. They have called for an international boycott of table grapes. The boycott has been so successful in cities like New ork, the workers are better organized, that surplus grapes have been shipped South, hoping to get around the p-iom. We hope you, the academic and non-academic workers atthis college, will help support the boycott.

The contents of each article are the sole responsibility of the person writmg that article. The paper is financed by the contributors. few wold to th actin prez: "Here it is possible to have a background of mti:ual understanding and respect that would obviate the need for all this technical provision. 11 Dr. Butterfield, in his comments on student "legalism". Having managed to hang on for my sixth or seventh tenn (some tines I am as pmzled as is the Exam mer's office by my statui), I find myself wondering to which "here" you refer, my optimistic sir. PR has a school which is an architecttural novelty surrounded by publicoriented propaganda, to which stu dents are mcidental except when shoed and shirted; incoming students a precious combination of pel'$0nal and academic ideals unfailmgly challenged (and occasionally des troyed)bytheinhumme reality that is this community; the faculty -or the noisiest parts of it-an increas ingly o'bvious desire for students who wish to be (passive) well-trained instead of to become (active) well educated. I guess you are speaking with the view of the college that prompts your being a trustee, and I assume you are actually concernEd with where your concept of the college is going; I refuse to believe, for the sake of my peace of mind, that you or any trustee has reached a level of perversion which you would be willing to formulate pol icy for the institution without real ization/ acceptance of the fact that the experience of this place is often a llle-defining one. I am very suprised, considering your experience in "innovative" education, that you are unaware of the phenomenon of student In a situation in which students are actually free to structure their living situation, they come up with more definitions than their more closely brem -(ll. In a semi-strictured position, where they are nominally free but deal with something like "Honor Conscience" (2), where the administration retams control with some phrase like "If, in the opinion of the College, the action of a student seriously compromises the college, he will be required to sev er his relationship forthwith" (3 )-and New College is the only one I know of which f:tas no suc.fi. clause, and in which student-faculty pressure has on occasion fore-stalled disciplinary action in this spiritover-definition does not occur because what it seeks to prevent has already happened. That, then, is a part of it, it happens because it Broadside is allowed to happen, and a cer tain small amount of pride may be taken in the fact. However, this is a minor part of the trlegalism. The principle reason is indeed a lack of faith, or trust, in the justice and consistency of the personnel of the college. It is also a growing pessimism about whether the ideals preached are shared by all participating (with the attend :t uestion, "lf not, wh not?"). Doyoufindthatparanoiac? Do you react by replying that, even in those cases where injustice has been done, the :intentions are good and the action should therefore be forgotten? Wordslikethatmake me wish you actually livedhere, where you would be bound up in observing or holding together the cracking he ads of students facing dismissal from college for non-payment of fees (whose parents have not been notified of ft); of studems facing dismissal because nobody (not even their advisor)thoughtthat the academic difficulties occuring could be anything but intentional, and hence nothing in the way of waming or was said: of students whose futures (and in the case of the present policy on medical leaves and the draft) are affected by major faculty or administration policy decisions of which they are not told. These are all majorthing s, but the atmosphere is kept continuously charged by treatment of the students in a manner that is not exactly rude, but at least be termed non-considerate. Many actions are symptomatic of Prl.s attitude. from major, like continuous blame of student appearance for a money situation which originated in opening with :insufficient capitol and has been aggravated by bad planning and waste (or pomted ignoring of major requests for academic re structu:rmg and evaluation by students which come out of each allcollege conference) to the smallbut-constant loss/ delay of mail. They include the conflict between the New College ideal of an allCollege commtmity of scholars and the fact that faculty-student contact outside the straight classroom situation is so rare that a second year student remarked "I expected that, at New College, being a professor would be more than a 9 to 5 job. Hah. Although is now quick to define (and bemoan the non-existence of) the continuing responsibility of the student-and I suppose that is some improvement because, for a you played the "I'm not going to tell you exactly what I want from you as a student, but if you don "t ao it you're in trouble"-game--no individual or group in the admm istration/faculty/trustee complex has ever come up with a cogent statement: this is what we feel is our responsibility a) to ourselves b) to Qu:r stud(!n,ts in the coP,tclCt of -November 27, 1968 this educational environment. Instead, there has been inconsistency, in'esponsibility, and dis-ap pointment or all sides, and most of the action which is be taken more defensive or definitive than than on-going. It seems to be coming down to, if you want this (like, to stay)youhaveto do this md this and this. Sort of an educational "You S. II I'm not saying that students don't talte shameful advantage of the unstructuring sometimes. They do. However, it is quickly learned by watching the community of adults which smrounds this "small com munity that had committed itself to adulthood, 11 that it is easy to espouse an ideal without a constant effort to live up to it; it is obvious that an effective way to prevent another part of the community from doing something not in your interest istopromptthem (by brute force or gentle coercion) to adopt some contradictmgpositive mode of behavior; I am constantly amazed at the difference between "my prin ciples" and 11what we will do, and cannot figure out who or what is the force wnich demands that indivi dual convictions be subsumed by an amorphous lesser principle. "A background of mutual respect and understanding" is usually men tioned by the side of a discussion which feels that it has made the greatest effort in that area to date. That background does not exist here because it has been abused out of existence, and will not until all parts of the community demon strate it as the rule, rather than the exception, in daily contact. It is not a lack of tradition which promptsthe so much lack of hmnanity; that deficiency, at least, is hardly a student monopely. To close with a remark on the Bill of Rights: a comment which maybe made on the earlier-mentioned lack of self-defmition of administration/faculty/trustee responsibilityto students is that if you will not do so we attempt to do it for you. Until you have defined that responsibility, you are free to treat us m a most arbitrary way, and no dialogue is possible because we do not know your pre mises> definitions, or of logic. By considering the paper, by reacting to specific points in which you feel we over-simplified or too much, you give us some ide a of your concept of our role (my feeling right now is that to evel)'one but students and a few faculty members the continuance of the institution is far more im portant than the education of its students, that the students are, in a significant way, incidentally rather than causallv related to the (continued page 4 column 5)

We left. Reading over two of Oglesby's articles last week (one in the current motive), there seemed substance enough for even a Catalyst article. Oglesby is an interesting combination of theoria and praxis, and I shall let this be the structure of the more important things he put iuto my head. II. THEORIA Oglesby's theoretical stance to ward re\.UluLion tmy be distinguisled clear! y by examining his criticisms of Albert Camus. Oglesby obJects to Camus' metaphysical and individualistic orientatioh toward rebellion as opposed to a political or historical orientation. In stating his own position, Oglesby says: There was always, and there remains, quite another way of visualizing our experience, another way of drawing up the cast of characters: the historical way. In place of the exquisite and subtle struggle of Man against the Absurd ... the historical imagination gives us instead something a good bit uglier and more lethal, a struggle of men against men pursuing their different historical purposes. Camus had jtlways wanted the cosmos to offer him a meaning, or at least an explanation, perhaps an apology. He never seems to have recognized that the cosmic silence which he condemns with an epithet, "The Absurd," is in fact the very ground of freedom, the indispensable precondition of the JIDrality mch he so passionately desired. Society for Oglesby is a dynamic continuing process There is no such thing as a society that won't destabilize itself. Todoso, history would have to end, and we as his torical men can't deal with such a question. Thus, the movement gives no detailed reply to the seemingly incessant questions about wha: it has to offer in place of the Pres eut System. That very question, Oglesby pointed out, stems from the "blueprint for a new society" idea of the old radicalism originating with Marx. What we oppose is pretty clear, although the oppos-ites of what we obJect to don't con stitute a society. We don't claim they do. We can only particular concrete relation of men to one another and to society. Yet this does not appear so very different from Camus. OglP.sby seems to misinterpret Camus' Absurd. not the cosmos which is absurd; it is the man-cosmos relation which is the Absurd. The necessary historical struggles of men are an inherent part of the relation which constitutes the Absurd. The end of rebellion is end of history for both Camus and Oglesby. Though Camus' general orientation as a person is more individual istic -than political, Oglesby can fault him only if his individualistic attitude carries over into his concrete actions, leading to an unrealistic approach to politics. Oglesby can't criticize the reasons for which he becomes involved in the revolution. Dylan'swords apply equally to Oglesby and Camus: There are many here among us who feel that life is but a JOke, But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate. So let us not talk falsely now; the hour is getting late. Though Oglesby may err in his criticism of Camus, he voices some criticisms which are applicable. 1-f is appalled by thi"machine esthe tic" of the new art, by camp art, by Haight-Ash bury and the East V illage, the pfeoccupationwith sensi bility and black humor. "All of them pretending to be avant-garde and rebellious, all of them at the same time increasingly addicted to what is, Oglesby lays a moral imperative on the artist, who necessarily discovers the: immense, cultural problem of ours, an embodiment of a dilemma which the informed artist is virtually compelled to pose, and which, once posed, forces the ar tist to confront a responsibility to art itself. He claimed you can never drop out or worl< "outside" the system. A third party has effect on a twoparty system. We must operate not with cosmic ambitions but with lit tle changes we think will lead on the ma-e changes. The inner and outer trip must go together. We (Continued on p.4, co1.2) DR.

Turtle after turtle. But there was this one thing that kept bugging me, and that was that I could see air. All the time, man, but I never told anybody about it cause it just wasn't something you talk about. But it really got to bother me keepin it inside, so one day I stayed after class -it W$ afternoon kindergarten -and hung arolmd while the teacher rapptd with some other kids, and then lost my nerve and zipped up my parka and put on the gloves and started to leave and got outside and froze -there it was, all over. air. Not just nothing but little dots. So I tumcd arolmd, went back inside, took off the parka and the gloves, and hung arolmd some more.
