The board, acting at the request of the Humanities Division, a greed to look into the possibility of leasing tem porary music practice rooms. Trustee Dr. Victor L. Butterfield reported for the Presidential Search Committee that his group had researched more than 100 candidates suggested by trustees, faculty, students and others. He reported that Dr Lawrence Fuchs would pay a return visit to campus tl1is weekend. Trustees, who began work on planning for the 1973-74 budget, agreed to review in February a budget which would be drawn up on guidelines in cluding: Student Chair Unconstitutional The College Resources Committe tn'ges all faculty to submit appropriate orders for textbooks and other supplies to the college bookstore as soon as possible. 1) A meeting was held on Friday, 3 'ovem ber, to discuss al**Enrollment for the fall term in 1973 would be figured at 575 to allow for attrition and off-campus study losses during second and third terms, hopefully averaging out to 550 for the ye ru: SEC Asked To Clear Cohn Case terua ve .... vt.lJ."Ses ot 1o. r.:garc:l".ug Ute .oTI .. g" store Attending were Dallas Dort, Charles Harra, )an van der Veen and Saul Paster. The most recent accounts and the finan cial history of the 'ew College bookstore were reviewed at L1an.::;;l .aid to tc. ::ct $340, 000 with $30, 000 of this to be considered for contingency pl.ll'poses, to be drawn upon if needed The Student Court held two meetings this week which dealt with the Student Chair issue and with Jim Cohn. The first meeting was on Monday night. At that meeting David Pini presented the Court with a petition asking the court to review the constitutionality of the present Student Chair arrangements The petition was signed by three SF.C members (Ginger Lyon, Len 'uttall, and Janet Goldwater), as required by the constitution. Pini also asked' that the SIC be enjoined from spending Jny moreo money on tl1e present Student Chair contracts and that nel' elections for the chair be held at the beginning of next term. Pini contended that the current Student Chair violates three of the four p:1rts of amendment two of the constitution, which set up the chair. Part J\ of the amendment reads in pJrt, that '' .. The holder of the Student Chair shall be a person of Instructional Ftmction 11 Part B states that Student Chair money can not be used for any otl1er purpose wiiliout the approval of the students at large. Part D says that final selection of candidates shall be by a referendum of the student body Pini said that last year he had told the then chairperson, Sheila Roher, that her plans for this year's Student Chair were unconstitutional. He Ftn' ther said tl1at Roher agreed with him but did not attempt to remedy the situation The court decided to delay its decision until Wednesd3y when it could call a special meeting. The court then went into closed session and then ad iour.ued. At the Wednesday meeting the court voted 4-0 in favor of the petition. (Justice Schwartz was absent). The court decided that all three parts of the amendment which were cited in the petition were in fact vi olated, in that there is more than one person holding Stu ent Chair, that this was not approved by the student body and that tJ1e SEC made the final selection of the lecturers. The effect of the decision is that the present Student Chair ar rangements are "rendered null and Void." After reaching this decision the court went into closed session. Informed sources report that the c:ourt told SEC chair-man Ron Davidson to call Jim Cohn today to find out about the thousand dollars given to Colm for summer expenses of the SEC and which wa> not used for tl1 at purpose. Cohn Yl'as SEC chairman hst year. At the :-.iarch 8, 1972 meeting of the SEC. $500 from the funds of eacl1 of the next year's terms were authorized for use during the summer. The money was to be used for phone bills and other expenses that the SEC has in its normal summer operations On }W1e 14, Colm was given a check for (continued on page 4)-this meeting. (note--TJ1e agreement between the college (first party) and Saul Paster (second party) states that, "First Part) shall have the rights to inspect all books of accounts and records of the Second Party for the purpose of verification of income statements Yet the only books reviewed at the "showdown with Paster" were there for the past three mont11s. Completely forgotten, it seems, were the books kept during the time when Paula Gulak was running the store. That is, if records other than those for income tax ptn'poses were kept at alL ) 2) The principal findings of this review of the bookstore ac cotmts ,.ere: a) While it is clear that credit problems continue efficient operation boOkstOre. it IS equally cleartliaftile 1ecent infusion of financial resources has somewhat reduced tl1e of these problems. ---b) As a result of its small size, the ew College bookstore is tmlikely to be economically viable unless a very substanti:Jl share of textbook orders are channelled through the bookstore. (A corollary to tllis is the matter of inventory It is necessary for this, as for evef) ma and pa operation, to have as little surplus mventory as possible. Evelyn Paster. present manager. has requested the faculty to tell her which books she can unload for this very reason. Yet this problem could have been avoided from the very h3d Bookatronics been a\\arded the contract (see Oct 26 CATALYST .. \ (continued on page 4) **A five per cent faculty and staff salary increase. Final approval d the budget including the inclusion of any of these items. would come at the February meeting of the board. At the same time, in view of tl1e pressures of inflation. the trustees autl1orized a SIOO tuition increase for 1973-74 and a further incrc ase of $100 for 1974-75. No action was taken b} tl1e trustees on pending tenure cases.

Dr. Kirtley. chairman of the FSC. presented several of tl1e committee's proposals, and each was greeted witl1 much debate and of motions. The rest of the proposals will be discussed at a later date. Those proposals which were approved by tl1e faculty were: 1. Divisional chairme11 will annually discuss with the non-tenured faculty their ten tn"e possibilities (see recommendation no. 1 in the report. ) 2. Divisional faculty personal record file will be available to all members of the college community. 3. Divisions shall meet to discuss the tenure decision of each member prior to balloting 4 All tutors and assistant professors will come ttp for eon sideration of tenure in tl1eir sixth year here. 5. Three student representatives from each division and the five student representatives to the faculty meetings wiD be allowed to vote for the members of the PAC 6. All tenured faculty will be balloted upon every year in their division, and the results will be made available to the faclllty : all ten ttred per sonnel will be reviewed every five years by tlte PAC, and the results will be sent to the chief educational officer. There was little debate on the first two proposals. How ever that was not true of the others. It was felt by some that the third proposal would give the members of the PAC two votes on tcnl.ll'e decisions: one in the division, one in the PAC, whicl1 is not fair. How ever, it was felt by many others that this was not a sig nificant p1.0blem since it was tmlikely that a PAC member would ch,a:nge his vote after the divisional meetings, thus givillt' himself too mucl1 nower. (continued on page 4) The SEC meeting opened Tuesday with a report from the Bread Board. Jim Hunter listed two requests; $200 for the end of term part) that has alreadr taken place. and $26.50 for the women's group Both were approved. Ron Davidson announced to the SEC that the three remaining Student Chair speakers would fulfill their two-da)' contract stays, and Ron suggested charging the public admission to make up some of the money spent on speakers. Brian Reid informed SEC members that a student court hearing on the constitutionality of last year's Student Chair selections would be held Wednesday (yesterday) at 7:00 in the FishbowL A petition submitted by Noah Yanich was read Noah for guest privileges through the ISP period, jus tifying his request with the fact that he would be working both to support himseli and on a plar that is oroduced as an ISP project A note from Mar:::os Santos stated that he would sign 1 'oah in, and a motion to approve the petition w as passed unanimouslv Doug Stinson then proposed 3 new New College motto: '' avigare navem ad astra plus est quam respondere multis stultis quaesitionibus" or "There's more to running a starship than answering alot of fool questions. This was made a motion and passed 5-l. Ron announced the Wed nesday 3:30 special faculty meeting. He expressed the opinion th:lt a meeting to discuss amending the procednres for tentn"e acted in favor of keeping tentn'e, since once procedtn"e changes are approved it is more likely that faculty approve tenure itself at the meeting scheduled for May Ron then brought up two points about the SEC-approved ten tn"e and governance pro (continued on page 4)

Tom Ciampion Editorials The SEC's governance proposals are aimed at in creasing student representation in New College Government. Ideally this is a laudable movement, and one which Chairman Davidson feels is backed by a student doesn't mow at election time. This brought up the question of how elections are run. At the last meeting of the SEC. Mr Davidson stated he would do everything in his power to see that the next election was run fairly and efficiently. But wait! How are the elections supposed to be run? Section II F of the student constitution states that "There shall be a permanent Supervisory Committee appointed .. by the SEC within two weeks after its regular elections. The job of the is tq run elections, which one might consider a fairly important role. especially with the student 'mandate'. Apparently the SEC docs not agree. When asked who the members of this committee \,ere.

REPRESENTED FOR NATION/IL ADVERTISING BY National .Educational Advertising Services, Inc. 360 Lexington Ave., New York, N.Y. 10017 The CATALYST FORUM Mah fellow students et al., I suppose that in light of the somewhat curious controversy concerning the placing of young Dana's 'lW in the Fishbowl, some explaination is due. It appears that this process has offended some people. The first time Dana's car was so placed in said Fishbowl, it was primarily intended to be one of those practical jokes or pranks (such as phonebooth stuffing) that college kids are prone to It was secondarily intended to provide some diversion from the normal humdrum breakfast a la estep. From most of the it would appear that it was a success. Dana enjoyed it and most of the people who say it there had a chuckle or three. At the time it occupied the Fishbowl, it had a hefty layer of papers underneath to prevent it from drippin on the rug In view of past novocollegian pranks, it was pretty considerate (ask B & G about some in the last five years}. The s econd intrusion into the inner sanctums of el Fishbowl was to be a welcome for the trustees who, based on my experience with them we believed would it The sign that was with the first one was t o accompany the second. In view of the fact that the dreadful belching, firebreati:ling creature was drippin oil profusely, the project was canceled. The car was removed and the oil wiped up. The remaining problem seems to be that of violation of the parking rule and other heinious crimes against nature alo11g with the subproblem of being offensive and misuse of the powers of public office I asked Hope for a copy of the parking rule, bE-ing unable to find one elsewhere, and fol.IDd that she did not have one either.

The Fishbowl really wasn't in the mainstream of vehicular traffic here the last time I looked. As to the matter of misuse of public office, I really don't see how that plays into it as I feel the proctor would not stop the perpetration of any harmless prank and would probably go so far as to unlock for anyone with one. In the instance of the first installmer.t of the VW in der Fishbowl, the proctor did not report it as it d.id not violate the security of the campus and I feel that I did not have anything to do with it not being mentioned the second time, by way of influence or anything As to being offensive, I was a little intoxicated a t the time and to those I offended, my ;1pologies Wha t remains is the im m aturit), self-ex pression etc. I find m yself aghast to find such rapid and vicious condemnation flying at ew College where so many people are guilty of that barbarous crime of being human So be it.

VIII article designated: "Student Chair Issue Flares at SEC Meeting": To whom it may concern: Upon reading the article concerning the Student Chair choice of Ross Tenill, and what I gather to be the agreement between Mr. Terrill and the Student Chair, it seems that Mr. Terrill didn't live up to the agreement totally. Now, am I to assume that we (since the students have money in the Stu dent Chair) paid $1, 250 for one thing, and got less than what we paid for? This seems unclear to me. But then perhaps we have n o mg e er with our money.

Some of the events were relatively sane (SO meter freestyle, 200 meter freestyle, SO meter breaststroke, 25 meter buterfly, and 50 met'"r butterfly). but others would have made Avery Brundage blancl.(25 meter corkscrew, 75 meter eggspoon relay, and fin races with only one pair of fins alloted to a team) Par ticularly bizarre were the diving events; most impressive splash(won by Mike Hammett, who reportedly soaked observers on the lifeguard's chair \v:ith his attempt). highest bounce, most bizarre dive(an appropriate event!, higf1est counce, most 'classic' dive, and (only at New College, folks!) most obscene dive. Among the distinguished swimmers oresent and participating were Hammett, Fred Ayres, Dave Goldman, Glem1 Price. :\1att Korol, Linda Loss, Wendy Smith(who won plaudits for carrying an egg in a spoon clenched in her teeth the length of the pool without dropping it), Terry Weber, the CATALYST's own Dan ChambHss, and i\1ark CaThins (who got the whole thing together) The afternoon ended with the distribution of free gallon jugs of unused orange juice and cider to swimmers, timers, and even a few spectators.
