It was felt that Max was a con.tributi ng me1nber of the college com munity by many, notonly Student, but also some faculty members with whom Max had sufficient volvement to allow them to form such ;n opinion. Max, whose let of 1 ast week appears in tbis Catalyst, wished to pose a question, a challenge, perhaps, to the illstitu tion on his proposed status as a pay ing boarder, a non-degree, but not unintellectual, not uninyolyed member of the commUPity.

Pa g e 2 continued from last week che /\t the enaof the m.:cting my clloiccs appeared to ne: pay the money and stay in school don't pay, and re -apply as a Special Student (and maybe not get arrlmittcd); don't pay and get expelled, and stay until they try and make me leave, aJid then stay. I wasn't sure what to do, but by the :next morning I waoted not to make a big deal of myself enough to tell Mr. Harra honestly that I intended to stay in school and pay the money I owed. That evening, I found a letter in my mailbox. It said: I understand that you raised several questions in today's College Council meeting and if I have a correct understanding of the questions, your position is inconsistent with our understanding at the time of your admission, If you will remember, I indicated that unless you wished to be a full time degree student and could finance your education, the Admissions Committee would not give 1erious consideration to your applica tion. Also, you should know that the Special Student category is rather narrowly defined at the moment, and since you have raised an issue publically without first talking about an interest m Special Student status, it may be a dead issue. (signed) Robert J, Norwine For two reasons, the letter interested r.1e. First, it honestly implies that J am an identurcd servant here. And indeed, by the letter of the law, I am. What I have done has been to put in Jeopardy that idea, that we are here as a privilege that can be taken away, on which the economic institution New College rests, Because I raised an issue publicly, a &ituaticm to turn hassles into "private" ones, around which no mass support can build, What if all the people here on RAP, or up for academic review, or all the "private" individuals who don't requirements, were to find one another? Because of their common condition, they would become a "public" and a dangerous one. So again, Mr. Norwine has read the situation correctly and acted accordingly, be trying to isolate me. In response, I am making his pri-vate letter "public" because I think channels of communication should be public when the issue is public. But that letter amused me more than it influenced my decision. Until yesterday, my birthday, I had intended to Just pay Mr. Harra and shut up. It was the reading I got from sampling my life on my 21st birthday that made me realize that by paying, I would not be making a decision, just putting one off. Thursday afternoon, walkingwith Kitty in the open fields 5ehind the barracks, I looked down and found a piece of string. And wished it to be a kite. And pulled it, And lo and behold, a hundred feet down the field a kite JUmped up in the air and rose like a genie way up. IT WAS A KITE BECAUSE WE WISHED IT! Friday while the sun set, we had a picnic. Twenty-five of us, sitting on Dave Ross's parachute right by the bay with food and drink straight out of a French movie and waterbirds entertaining, and balloons. Saturday, in the early morning mist, Jon Esak gave me a gift, a book of ancient philosophy which he treasured. As we stood in the courtyard, watching my illegal dog standing under a miniature tree eyeing a cat, the whole scene out of a Chinese painting.
