Butterfield Pledges to Keep'Even Keel' Dr. Victor L. Butterfield, Acting President of ew College, called for help from all segments of the college commtmity to "keep New College on an even keel in President John Elmendorf's absence." Butterfield made these remarks at the All-College "town meeting" Tuesday night. Butterfield said that there would be a "minimumofmajordecisions" during his tenure, but that there can still be "planning and thought" on the major issues the college faces. "We must try to do things that are consistent with Dr, Elmendorf's leadership," he said, but there may be some "necessity for postponement" of decisions tmtil Elmendorf can return in mid-January. He said that he felt much planning needed to be done in the field of educational policy, and he pledged to "continue the ongoing situation as best I can. D ining Hall Rules A ltered At the all-college "town meeting" 'J;;uesday night, the proposal submitted by the Food Committee to libE;ralize dining hall regulations was accepted by consensus by the student body. Food Service Manager Thomas Estep has also agreed to the proposal, thErEby putting it into effect immediately. The proposal, presented to the student body by Student Executive Committee member Larry Reed reads: All students shall be allowed free access to the dining area of Hamilton Center during meals: this privilege being subject to the following conditions: (a) If, at any time, the kitchen manager feels that dishes are being "borrowed" from the kitchen, he may reinstate the closed dining room policy. {b) If, at any tine, it is apparent that tmauthorized persons are consuming food, the kitchen manager may close the dining room, (c) The students, along with the kitchen staff, will be responsible for the enforcement of (a) and (b). The doors will remain locked during mealtimes, (For editorial comment, see page two, colwun one). COLLEGF FIRST MEETING The ew College Council, at its last meeting, reco11n1ended t:lnt anyone intending to ask the local authorities to investigate a violation of civil law on the campus notify the Student Policy Office first. In cases of disagreement as to the advisability of such action, the Director of the Office of Student Policy will be the final authority. Charles Harra, Business Manager of the college, was asked to notify all interested parties, including faculty advisers, before he reiiDves a student from the roster of ew College because of failure to pay bills. Students were asked to cooperate with the Capital Campaign staff in making the kick-of a success. Trustees: Eyes Only The meeting of the Exectii.ive Boord of the Boord of 'frust:ees which had been scheduled for OctobetJ.8 has been cancelled, Thlstee Robert Voo Skike said today. The meeting was cancelled be CaJSe all major business was carried out at the general board meeting September 23. New College trustees met in New York Monday to consider what actions to take as a result of the president's illness. At that time, Dr. Butterfield was asked to serve and he agreedtovisitthe college to de termine whether he would accept the interim assignment. He spent Wednesday and Thursday on campus meeting with members of the Board of Trustees, faculty, st:if and students, DallasW. Dort, airman of the Board of Trustees, said the board wasforttmateto ha e a man of Dr. Butterfield's qualifications available and willing to assume the interim post. "Dr. Butterfield served with distinction as president of Wesleyan for 25 years and he is one of the most widely-known and respected figures in Am eric an higher education," said Mr. Dort, Faculty Discusses Committees The faculty discussed ways in which it can act more effectively as an advisory body to Acting President Victor L. Butterfield during 15resident John Elmendorf's absence at its meeting yesterday. It was suggested that the Ed u cational Policy Committee of the faculty and the Student Faculty Committee work together as an "educational task force" for advisory purposes. This discussion followed a talk by Dr. Butterfield on shortand long-range problems of the college. Dr. Butterfield also presided over the meeting. The Educational Policy Committee will study procedures for transferring course work from other institutions to satisfy requirements here. The construction of the Palmer Can pus dormitories will tentative ly begin in February of 1969, with completion due September of that year. The dormitories are planned for 140 students, btt:: the final decision on the number of residences that must be available will be decided at the November meeting of the Board of TrlJstees. SEC Definesstud For Rules, A form for interdisciplinary or special majors is now for use, it was announced, The deadline for return of these forms by secondyearstudents will be six weeks after the beginning of first term, Nextyear the deadline will probably be before the first term begins. It was stated that late applications for four-year option may be accepted if the College Examiner's Office, the Office of Student Policy, and other involved faculty gave their ajlproval. The faculty also an .Ad Hoc Committee onFellowsh1ps, .::ommittee on Public Lectures. At the Student Executive Committee Meeting last night, the SEC defined "student" for the purposes of student rules and elections, The definition will be Article Five of the SEC's modes of procedure, Forthe purpose of student rules_ a "student" was defined as one who is a) in academic residence at the college; or b) on four-year option from the ore) on academ ic leav e from the college; or d) a special student; or e ) David Pini, For the purposes of elections, both voting and elegibility to run, a student was defined as one who is in academic residence at New College. At a special SEC meeting last Sunday, the SEC abolished the guest-sign-in rule for off-campus students, which means that students who live off campus do not need to be signed in at any time. Other business conducted at last meeting included approval of :ppropriations requested from The the Student Bread Committee, The Student Faculty Committee contin-Students Discuss Core Changes Several first-year students have expressed with the Natural Sciences Core Program and are presently ci'-'Culating a petition demanding major revisions in the aims and content of the program. A meeting between faculty and concerned students was held in the dining room of Hamilton Center on Wednesday evening, September 25. At the meeting, students voiced concern about the course, and as a result, a petition was drawn up, The petition states that the Nat. Sci. program is not tmlike science courses to be had in high school too technical, andnecdy of ection towardshumanisticallyrelevant aspects of science," It further suggests that there be joint meetings of students and faculty to determine the direction in which cirriculum changes should be made. There have also been complaints lodged ag:instthe Humanities core p r o g r a m Although no specific has been taken by students, Dr. William Hamilton, Professor of Religion, and a small group of students have discussed the possibility of creating a Humanities seminar, in addition to the core program, which would attempt to remedy some of the shortcomings of the present curriculum. ucd work on its petition and proposal to scat student representatives at at faculty At 1 ast ni gbt s meeting, an amendment to the modes of procedure pertaining to the elections forstudents on faculty committees w passed, It was also stated that first-yc ar students wishing to change theN atural Sciences Core program shoull. present t1"r r prq,os;is the Student Faculty Committee.

Page 2 The Catalyst October 3, 1968 Editorials Waring Evaluates College NEW COLLEGE -NOW PaulZimmennan's article comparing the fallof Shimer with the possible fall of New College is a grim had read Spenser, Milton, Pope, Dryden, Coleridge, Wordsworth, etc. Less obvious authors drew a perfect blank. 3. Shelving is chaotic, and cataloguing frequently separates the works of an author. Suggestion A collect ion of current paper back books shelved together in a reading room or seminar might encourage the student to s;rnplc contemporary literature. The current magazines should be moved, too. The present loc a ion discourages serious rcadi.J1g. Curriculum The core rrogran strikes me as being excellent in most respects, though I suspect that a re-evaluation of some of the required readings might result in different or more recent selections. My limited (too limited to make this comment with any authoril}) with the students lea:ls me to believe that the core courses do not carry over to the seminars. When I attempted to draw students into discussions tf core rn at erial, l fotmd attitudinal responses, ratltcr than information 011 relationships. Most responses came in terms of New Crit icism, Freudianism, Nco-Humanism, or solipsisms. I found no stu dcnt who ventured into contempo rary aestheticism or even the im plications modern philosoph}' has for literal)' students. 2. Students seem to be tmable to focusthcirconcern for tests. They certainly see few relationships between course work md examinations. 3. Students do not write enough to write easily. Few find writillg a pleasure. Suggestion 1. I think that seminar "prelims" that relate seminars to core material should be required, read, evaluated, and discussed with the students, but not; record d. or That students should make full written reports on the significance of their seminars. These statem cnts might include a list of completcd readings. 2. !believe tl1atyounced a tutor in writing for students who have dilfic ttltics. 3. Ascriesof divisional seminars attended b} the division in which (or portions of) thcrr 1SP s m1ght gtvc more point to that project. I can find very little "feed forward" resulting from the ISP's. F ac u.lt i' and Students 1. Students fail to distinguish between opinion and scholarly an alv sis. Very few t1Jat I tclked with really believed that tl1e professors' opinions arc based on any expert or detailed investigation of literature. I do not believe that students feel themselves of the fac tilty in academic effo:-. 2. I fear that professors at New College work in more isolation than I thinl< good. I encountered very few illfon_n al discussions about their own work or about literature in general. Suggestion I think that something like fac ttlty-studcnt study groups might become a profitable feature of your program. Faculty members could present portions of their current re search before interested colleagues and 'tudents. St ndents who have worked out presentable studies could part icipatc in such a venture. General Students arc much too concerned with social a1d administrative problems and far too little concerned with their own studies. Perhaps )'OU ill tend this, but I think } ou will ultimately regret it. For example, few students asked about my own research, but many questioned me about social conditions on my own campus, etc. Even literary students sound like sociologists. Suggest ion. I think visiting speakers might ill elude research scholars. Such people arc not costly, and they usually take their visit seriously They should be distinguished from speakers on signific;nt topics and famous-name speakers. Students need to be shown how theirstuclics arc nccessal)' avenues to informed opinion. I do not believe that your program ac.com plishcs this task. Conclusion I fear that far too much student energy is spent on issues and attitudes and far too little on content. AJthom;h your students arc bright, they arc not illformcd. I am not certain that the college l1<1> made good its promise to show how schol arly application can result in enli,..htencd values and rch!vant dc The students, far too often, arc clever apologists who base their responses on feelings rather than on fact. (continued on p. 3. col. 5) From Jon To the Editor: The students have asked for the right to govem their dining area; now, through a trial period, they mll$t prove their apUity to govem themselves. If the student body chooses not to enforce the rules it has taken upon itself to enforce, it is breaching its promise, and the amount of faith which other parts of the commtmity can place in it will have dropped considerably, and justifiably so. For these reasons, we urge that the student body take a serious and concerned attitude toward dining hail infractions, and make a sincere effort to prevent the re-closing of the dining area ...-. _______ Coyntry Dicit Yodels For a little over ten days now my status has been one of almost total incommunicado in the special Cardiac Intensive section of Sarasota Hospital.

He is a man as you will quickly find -of great knowledge and great heart. His own record as President of Wesleyan was one of constant progress toward humanism in the management and concept of the small university college which Wesleyan became under his leadership. He is known to a number of you :nd will be known more. You will find, to your surprise perhaps, that he can be trusted -trusted in the sense that he has the rare form of honesty which comes from complete and total dedicction to the student who is the raison d' etre of our colleges today. He has been a long-standing friend of mine and I feel that the decisir.n of the trus tees in selecting hirr, -or at least The Marx brothers are at it again, and as another "town meeting"' lecture/ comedy evolved from nonsense to no nonsense (is stabilitv with debate stability_?), myreactiontoTommy1sdinin>:ha1f compromises were best espressed by brother Karl's "Property is theft" equation. like Larry said, the SeiVomaton has put the student body on permanent probation, so let's all be good, Any objections? Of course not Who could object to such a generous offer by these generous merchants to allow students to roam at will through their own campus? Who woUld even suggest tha t perhaps students should regulate their own affairs when Tommy is so willing to tell us who eats with whom? After all, don't we have a proctor to tell us who sleeps Y>'ith whom and a sheriffto tell us who gets high on what? And don't we ignore them all anvwav?

It Signifies hght, illurm-New College May Share Shimer's Fate by Paul Zimmerman Having been in attendence at this conventional academic institution for a meager three weeks, I am not suce whether I am fully qualified to to write the article which is to follow. Although the ungodly amount of propaganda shovelled at me by various factions of the college community plus my extreme prejudices are no attributes of quality reporting, I am going to proceed to tell what lhave learned plus what I eYperienced last year at Shimer College in the hope of helping divert ew College from its gruesome course. 'ovum egiWl l anything but novum. We are following the same paththatShimeroncetrod. We are chasingthat identical white rabbit who is promising us the glories of an academic wonderland, but in the process is leading us to a possible fall from which we may never recover. Five or six years ago Shimer was an academic utopia. It was a small, unconventional college (about 250 students), it had a faculty and cirriculum, and it provided a groovy atmosphere for doing one's thing. It never had the finances or the name, however, to grow and mature. Shimer wanted to J:tfOW, but the big m;u:ipulators of the college did not forsee what rapid growth would do, They worked diligently with the PR people and finally landed themselves a full page article in Time magazine. The article proclaimed the wonderfulness of Shimer to the world. Result? The college was rated as one of the top fifteen schools in the country. Money started pouring in and applications were shooting upwards like Jack's proverbial beanstalk. Administrative people .>Ian ned to capitalize on their newly acquired fame. They looked into their crystal balls but could not !orsee Shimer's fate, All that appeared before them were images of new buildinJ;tS and more students. "Go Shimer! Build, build, build, climb, climb, climb. 11 Within two or three years, the student body had increased by about 200 students without a sufficient increase in faculty. Change was coming too quickly. Classes grew in size and older students complained of a sudden loss of that old Shimcrchann. Life was still bearable, however, and the school marched on. Coupled with the Shimer expansion came a novel idea from the voice of the powerful people. They suggested that since Shimer was finally becoming respectable, the admissions department should sift out as many freaks as possible. We all know, however, that freaks are practically the only people who can survive at, and profit from, a small, isolated college. The result of Shi mer's clean-up campaign w a s a rapid drop in the quality of the student body and an increase in social conflicts. Shimer had peaked and wa; now deS!;enerating. Zimmerman The next phase of this little fairy tale is uncertain. Two years ago an unexplainable revolution swept over the grounds of the Shimer world. One of the major factors which led up to this was the faculty's dislike of the. administra.tions power usurpation. At th1s stage of Shimer's development, had "the" idea for. improvement and J:tfOct !he ing was bitter, an Shimer s students were caught in the middle. The smoke cleared th,.. ""vt falland the casualties were counted. Over ISO of the students dropped out, and about 507o of the f_ac ultv (Shimer's best) had gone mto Shimer had to lowerits standards to maintain a student body of just 350 students, and new, unqualified teachers were rushed in to fill an unfillable gap. Three months later the president resigned. All the ki.ng's horses and all the king's men now can't put Shimer together again. So ends this aborted history of the rise and fall of a beautiful place. I don't think it's too hard to extract from this story many similarities between it and the situation which now exists on the ew College campus. Our people in high places have great plans for this school. As far as I understand, enrollment for the class of '72 will be close to 200. This may provide many prol:.lems for New College. As it is now, the faculty are being overloaded with work, and this is r aising complaints from both faculty and students If the size of the student body increases as planned, an enonnous increase in faculty size would be necessary to keep close student-faculty contact a reality. Student housing would present another great problem. This year the entering students' communication with upperclassmen has been somewhat limited because so many of the older students are living off campus. This is certainly no aid in estabiishing a unified, working community. If the admiss_ions fice plays another nasty trick w1th a large entering class next year, things can't help but get worse. From what I gather, many of the older students are seeing an overthrow of the old New College atmosphere. Things are changing too quickly. The devotion which pr_o bably existed at this school while it was slowly pulling UJ? on its feet is now rapidly d1mmishmg. Apathy is slowly infiltrating our ranks. In the realm of academic matters we also appearto be in bad shape. What's happening here? We are now required to take and pass two or three courses a term. This is a radical change from "the New College ideal" as explained by admissions men and the catalog. Even our transcripts are joining in the rise of conventionalism. I recently came to the conclusion that New College is not all that different from any other school. They just have sneaky ways of of wordin2 old in new ways. The college is really coppin11: out on its promises made in the catalog. The New College catalog is a great device for luring inexperienced students from high schools, and once here, these students don't have the knowledge to see that everything is going stale. I may be wrong on this point, and if so, I wish I could see some active and constructive bitching from them. I think this leads into the greatest problem of this campus. There is no real commmtication between the various factions of the com mmtity. Every big decision maker remains silent as to the TRUE activities he is involved in. It seems thatno one can be trusted to assist in the woti{ings of this college except our men on Mt. Olympus. Pride and arrogance may be creeping in a s they did at Shimer. Dis illusion.mcnt and more a athy may be a result of the workings o f the upper echelon of this college. I can understand the position of the Board of Trustees in their desire to sec this school prosper both financially and educationally. It is sad, however, that they don't appearto understand the point of view of the students. We are forced to participa:e in "Father Knows Best. 11 !can't see why the Board doesn't look at the histories of other liberally oriented schools who pushed for growth and conventionalism quickly. It is obvious that a certam type of student would be attracted to the ideals which this school holds. New College is oriented toward the student who wants both academic and social freedom and is not burdened with the tmnecessary workings of bureaucracy. The school's supposed anti-traditional and liberal atmosphere is quite attractive. At the moment we are the only decent coun try which has any poss1bility of fullingliberal goals with any hopw of success. Look at our pred_ecess_ors. Shimer is dying, Reed IS dymg, Antioch is dying, Goddard is dying, Bard is dying, Oberlin is now leaving a lot to be desired, and Franconia is dead. We can't let ourselves be added to this list. Students, let us attem);X to establish communications in order to have all sides of our growinst controversy be voiced, We must make efforts to divert this school from the course that has been followed by our unfortunate predecessors. To end on a happy note, I'd like to quote one of Shimer's many exfaculty members who said during the revolution, 11 Any institutio1, will help in own destruction. 11 Just What Yo u v e Always Wanted ...

II The idea for a new rag on the campus was first toyed with last year by Steve Marsden and Ivan Saxby. The idea was actualized into a few prospective cover designs, but little else was done before the summer holidays began. Over the summer, Marsdm worked with Ravmond MunRO and Marshall Bloom for the Liberation News Service in Washington D. C. New York, and Montague, Massachusetts. He was offerred the editorship of the Florida Free Press by Romeo Rivard, but upon his return to Florida he found that the FFP was in a shambles and that the editor was in jail in Texas .. He also found out that over the summer a group has been meeting at the house of Jeff Wright, Assistant Professor of Political Science at the college, to discuss the possibility of establishing a newspaper on campus. Plans had been worked out and a name, INSIDE OUT, de cidea u but, alas, th re was no editor to be found. Seeing his chance, Marsden volunteered his services as editor, the end result being Jeff Wright' s paper with my name and the Florida subscriptio n list of thirty-fiV.e people. Hence, SATTVA.
