LETTER To the Editor: Madden's presumption transcends Jon's so I feel he must be answered. The role of the Admissions Department is to serve the educational community and faculty) New College is not the marital life of a soccer coach. It is everyone/s responsibility to work to preserve New College. When an administrative department admits an inordinately large class (32 more than their maximum prediction) a class which the school (with the limits on new faculty) cannot absorb. Then it is the responsibility of all to protest loudly, and perhaps force them to run ten laps and kick tbem. Docility will only encourage them to greater outrages. Love, (Signed) Aronoff
