Volume VIII Number 15 February 8, 1973 Harb To Fumigation Fee Sparks Controversy Contest Election charles Harb, who ran ag ainst oaryl Laatsch and was defeated in the election for SEC chairman held two W<'eks ago, is formally taking the matter of the SEC-chairman run-off election to Student court, Laatsch talked with Ron Davidson, ex-Elections chairman, and in tum with Harb. Laatsch's decision regarding the suit, said Harb, was "that the discrepancies weren't significant enough to warrant a new election, '' taatsch then will not be supporting Harb when Harb brings the matter to Student court on Tuesday, febrarr 13, "Although he wouldn't support our action," Harb said, he wouldn't defend his own position too strongly. He instructed Er: (LOfgren, his defense counsel) to mount a limited defense." Bryan Reid will serve as Harb's counsel, commenting on his actions, H.!rb said, "This case isn't to decide who shall be SEC chairman. The purpose is to decide whether the SEC elections were mismanaged enough to demand a new election." Special SEC Last Monday, february 5, the SEC held a special meeting in the President's Dining Room to discuss pet policy. Earl Helgeson, Dean of Stu dent Affairs, stated that, some time before this summer, all of the rooms on campus would have to be de-flea.J. This would cost $300; in addition, there would be an additional cost of $ lUO a month to continue the service. The total cost would be $1500 a year. Hel geson went on to say that, "if there were no pets tomorrow," it would still cost $700 to elim inate the fleas Rick Lathrop, first-year rcp-r esentative, said that if students wanted pets, it was up to the school to pay the expense. Len Nuttal, second-year representative, responded that it waJ unfair for people who do not have pets to subsidize the pet-ownen. He then moved that a referendum be held to determine student opinion on the sub ject, The motion failed when Daryl Laatsch, chairman, cart the trying vote, He explained this by saying that re was in principle in favor of a referendum, but would prefer a motion 'that was specific in re gard to the wording of the ref erendum, which was left open in the oriji(inal motion. Bill Luker (first-year) then Court Busy With Three Meeting Called T(JU)n Meeting Discusses Issue moved that a tax be placed on all pets, wendell wagner (third-year) amended the mo tion to read that if $500 were not raised each term, the SEC would make up the difference. The motion failed, with only Luker and Wagner in favor. The idea of a Town Meeting to discuss the issue was presented and Nuttal moved that one be held OD wedneJdayJ february 7, at 8 pm. The mo tion passed unanimously. A Town Meeting was held Wednesday, February 7, in Hamilton Center to discuss the problem of pay:ing for the fum igation of the campus--"the pet J:rOblem." The meeting was held following a meeting of the SEC with Earl Helgeson on Monday, February S. Daryl Laatsch, who served as moderator, started the meet ing when about sixty people had arrived, about 8:15, fif teen minutes late. DARYL LAATSCH AND "SMITTY" LEAD THE DISCUSSION as pet owners and flea-haters callide at Wednesday's town meeting. Meetings The problem, said Laatsch, was to determine how to gather the necessary $1500 per year to pay for periodic fumigation of the campus by city pest con1xol. The fumigation, he said, was necessary, to meet Board of Health standards, and could not be avoided. $300 of the money would go to pay for an initial fumigation; $100 a month for each month of the year would pay for periodic pesticide t:re atments. 11The SEC felt very reluc tant to take any position, "said Laatsch on the issue without hearing from a number of stu dents; hence, the meeting was held, since the motion to pre sent the question to the student body in a referendum did not pass through the SEC. So long as animals are on campus, 11 Laatsch said about the $1500 obligation, "there will be this charge there's no way arotmd it. Opinion was divided among the attending students. Judy Schatz suggested that the SEC assume at least part of the cost, as it often appropriated money for minorities of the student body. Laatsch said that the SEC could afiord to pay the cost, but that such a payment would substantially cut SEC ftmds. Hank Pug.h suggested that all pets on campus be required to be registered, and that any continued on page thre Cou,rt Accepts Ackerman Case Craft Teachers Banned Over 65 Retention Policy Set By Faculty The faculty met in another of its monthly meetings Wednesday with the p:"inciple topic of discussion concerning facul ty over 65 years of age. necessary. However the faculty generally felt that this new machlnery was not cumber some and was already being used de facto. In addition, The Student Court last night botmd Ross Ackerman over for trial on a charge of possessing a "weapon or a dangerm:; implement that gives rise to feelings of intimidation en: c1isturi.J ance. The 1xial will be held next Tuesday, with the juty selection begin ning at 5: 15 PM. Ackerman was charged with carrying a "BB pellet gtm" at the recent Coronation Party and with a violation of the Non-intervisitation section of the Student Code. The court accepted the first charge but refused to try the second be cause there was no proper com plaint made in reference to it. The accused pleaded "not guilty" to the charge and re quested a jury trial. Defense counsel, Ira Glas ser made two motions to have the courtroom cleared because potential jurors were present and because the spectators were unruly. Both motions were denied by the court. The defense also requested that a record be kept of the hearing and the court then hired a secretary. The prosecution moved that both the defense and the pro secution exchange lists of wit nesses and evidence at least forty-eight hours in advance of the trial and that the defendant answer in writing the charge made against him, With the consent of the defense the motions were granted. COURT :MEMBERS CONFER at Tuesday's proceedings in which three non-students were convicted of guest rule violations and verbal assault. The Student Court met twice last week to consider a somplaint by Kenna Murray a gainst the three jewelry-work ing instructors, The initial complaint was brought before the court en Monday evening, bU; the court felt that since the instructors weren't present to defend them selves, it should wait tmtil they were present to hear their side. On Tuesday the jewelry instruc tors were present. Formal complaints were them filed by Mark Calkins, on behalf of Kenna Murray, and Bram Haver, Court Prosecutor, on behalf of two students. The com plaints cancemed guest rule violaticns and complaints of verbal abuse directed at women students by the defen dents, In response to the first reading of the complaints, one of the defendents said, "Most of it's fabricated. 11 The three instructors de fended themselves by saying that they were tmaware of the guest rule and were led (by students} to believe that it was all right to stay nights on cam pus, even though they had been expressly told not to do this by Ms. Murray. It was, however, admitted that "we are guilty of sleeping on campus sometimes." In response to the accmatio!s of verbal abuse, the de fendents denied that any abuse was intended, To this the plaintiffs replied that whether it was meant as such or not, that was how it was interpreted. The court then went into a closed session to deliberate a verdict. The verdict retumed was that the three jewelry in structors were banned from campus fen: ten days. From then until the end of the term, they may be on campus tmtil ll PM each niji(ht. provided continued on page three Speaking for the Presidents Advisory Committee, Dr. Bor den made a motion that the same voting procedure as is used for tenure consideration be used fen: consideratioo. of the continuance of faculty who have reached the retirement. This procedure includes the vote of the division involved and a recommendatioi of the PAC. The motion also asked that those faculty members in volved give notice of their desire to retum in October of the year he or she turns 65 so that there will be am pie time for for the proper to be taken. During the discussion of the motion it was brought up that a regular retentioo. ballot (which calls fen: only the vote of the division involved) was sufficient and no new "machinery" was Buri Discusses Candidates "We won't pick a woman if she isn't qualified, Dr. Peter Buri said Tuesday, speak ing about tmoccupied faculty positions in the Natural Science division, but he continued, "there is no bias against" and even "a certain interest in "recruiting more women for teaching posts at Nat. Sci. There is now one worn an (as opposed to fourteen men) teaching at Nat. Sci. and there arc three positions o'pen; one in Biology, one in Physics, and a temporary position in Mathematics. Dr. Buri, Division dlair man, siad that they were sending notifications of the job openings to an agency to which women apply when looking for continued on page three Or, Knox added that this kind of decision shouldn't be made by the division alone. The motion carred. The Faculty Status Com mittee introdoced a motion to change the tU:le of over-65 faculty to adjtmct professor since they fit that category in the recent chart of faculty categories the best. Dr. Kirtley, speaking fen: the FSC, op posed the creation of a new solely for over-65 faculty as being tmnecessary, and anyway, "I want to keep my 1i:ttle chart as ue at as possible. 11 However the faculty felt that no change in title was necessary and the motion was withdrawn. Another later mo tion by Provost Riley on the same subject was reiered to the FSC for further study. The PAC also annotmced that they would relate there sults of faculty tenure consider ations at the ne>--t meeting. They also requested that students let their opinions of those faculty being considered for promotion, and second and fourth year non-tenured faculty being reviewed, be known. Said Dr. Borden, "We've been getting good response we'd like more." Dallas Dort, acting Presi dent, distributed copies of the proposed budget for next year. He announced that it is estimated that there will be only 499 students on campus this term. Since the budget is based on enrollment of 550, this drop could have financial repercussions, Contacted after the meeting, Ms. Ferraro attributed the drop to those stu dents who complete their ninth term before the third term. When asked about the presidental search, Dort replied, "the chances of our having a president next September are 95%. n

Staff: Page two THE CATALYST .An public;>tion sen.inll: the :-Jew College P. 0 Box 1958 Sarasota, Fla 33578 Daniel F Chambliss -Editor Sherri Mcindoe-Editorial Assistant Lee Harrison-Advertising Manager Tom Sommers.3usiness M;-l1;>ger Doug Stinson Production Ron Barrett, Beth Brown, Tom Campion, Scott Edelstein, Steve Jacobson, Eddie Katzman, Robert Komman, Stuart Levitan, Randi Payne, Marty Ross, Amy Schacter, Sally Stephens, P:J.t W asz Editorials Tuition rates for New College are approximately $3000 per year; room and board ale around $1.300. For these fees we have a small school, with good teachers. We have a school claiming to be innovative and excellent. We have a grand piano, an academic division without even an ex.;use for a build:ing, an inadequate library, old air corps barracks for art studios, three modern-looking dormitories, a food service, and an old basketball net out :in the Hamilton Center parking lot, And we have no money to improve these facilities. Our money goes for teachet:S, for basic maintenence, for holding the student-faculty ratio down. We think these are the }X"Oper priorities. New College cannot compete with Harvard or Chicago or Stanford on the basis of its facilities, or its cultural attractions, or its job-market trestige (try telling a local school board :in Rossville, Georgia, that you went here: "Yes, but what's its name?"). We cannot turn out top level research on p:inched budgets and two-member depart-ments. We cannot compete in "academic excellence" using students who, having seen that phrase only once in the catalogue, think New College might be trying something different. Flexibility, or innovation, or experimentation: somewhere :in the inteTSection of these three is what must be the essence of the New College education. Without this essence, we are an underequipped, tmderstafed, underendowed parody of a school, telling others, and ourselves, that we arc a Harvard, and citing as JrOOf ow-"demanding" professors, our "serious" students, and ow-history of recruiting valedictorians and class poets. Our only asset is the philosophy of our academic program, a philosophy based on the almost idealistic belief that in the educational process only the greatest flexibility possibly produce the highest excellence. The CATALYST I......__ ___ FORUM To the Editor, This letter is being written because I feel that my statement :in last issue's election article might easily be misconstrued. The second count of the run-off election ballots did :indeed show a discrepency. While the original was taking place, the ballots were separ ated into two piles--the votes for Daryl and the votes for Charlie. By accident a ballot was placed in the wrong pile. This mistake was discovered, the ballot was placed in the correct pile, and a third count was made. The results of this cotmt matched the results of the first count. TI1is letter is not meant to cast doubt on other part of the election article or on the :intentions of its author. J simply wish to clarify a statement that to me seemed ambiguous. Sincerely, Thomas To the Student Body, Having just returned from attending my first (and most likely my last) SEC meeting, I feel moved to put my opinions on record. The issue th3t so moved me was the motion on which almost an hour was spent--whether or not to grant El Douche the sum of $17!i for its publishing costs for second term. Every conceivable opin ;on was aired on both sides, with Jim Hunter being noticcb ly most vocal on the dissenting faction (in fact, his negative attitude was catching, it seemed). The issue slowly generated into purely personal opinion for and against with .:!Yen the point being brought up that it represents the "free voice" that the CATALYST cannot provide because of ad vertising policies. The issue was no longer El Douche but personal antagonism. It culminated after the motion was defeated 4-2, with Wenda.ll Wagner striking Ross Ackerman over the head with his umbrella (yes, folks) and the motion to ''throw Ross out. He left. Then visibly strained, the SEC discussed and passed the motion to reimburse Josh Stein for costs of the two issues published this term. Jim I Iw1ter abstained. I make the observation that Jim Hunter :J.Ctually voted on only one issue during the meeting--the El Douche issue. Though he presented all other Bread Board requests in a generally negative manner, he managed to remain "impartial. I see a highly opinionated person i 1 a position of authority who feels it is his duty to look out for the supposed best :inter ests of all New College students. I don't know how Jim HWlter obtained his position as shepherd of the flock (alias Bread Board Chairman) but I know I have never voted for him and never will. I strongly urge the rest of the student body to drop in on an SEC meeting and see how it "operates. 11 I left laughing. Karen Lundmark Trustees Praise Development On Fund Raising Efforts On behalf of the New College Com m un ity, the CATALYST would like to reprint this letter: To the editor Sarasota Herald Tribune 801 S. Tamiami Trail Sarasota, FL New College is proud, happy, and relieved to have again met the Ford Foundation $1 million challenge. The result is that-again-we will receive from Ford $250, 000 in the coming year as a match:ing grant. The Sarasota Community responded magnificently-againespecially in the final few weeks when-led by a $50, 000 ch:;.J.I.enge from Harry Suda contributed nearly $300, 000 in a three week span. Everyone in the New College community is grateful to all oux contributors and we want all Sarasotans to know it, including the hundreds of re tirees and working couples whose smaller contributions we especially welcome, New College is their school, too. from There is one group of people, however, which has been overlooked in our thank yous--Bob Drabik, our director of development and his small staff, especially the mesdames Adrienne Swift, Virginia Kundzicz and "Joey" Dobbins. Just exactly how well they have performed may be highlighted by this fact: last year less than 5% of all public and private colleges and universities in the United States raised $1 million or more in new operating funds. New College was om of the 5% and Bob Drabik and his staff did the job with so few people and such a small budget that we are told New College had perhaps the lowest cost of raising its money of any college in the country. The Trustees Development Committee is tremendously proud of Bob Drabik and hissstaff and we feel that the college and Sarasota are fortunate to have associated with us a person of such character, dedication and capability.

Fri. 8:30 to 5:30 Sat. 8:30 to 12:00 February 8, 1973 Dear Sir; Having read Ron Davison's letter I feel impelled to reply to several of his statements. In ms letter Ron states he could legally authorize money being given to Henry Patterson. This is completely untrue An SEC Chairman has, in fact, practically no powers, beyond one vote in the SEC and cer tab1 secretarial duties (in which class I put chairing meeti I myself voted Patterson the money only because I felt that he himself had presented the SEC with a reasonable request for money. This brings to an attitude noticeable throughout Davidson's letter: his dem md for a strong SEC chairmanship. I am vehemently opposed to this. I think a c:ueful reading of the Cata will show that they l1ave a ays agreed editorially with me about this. The January 11 editorial against strong government in any form, it seems. I think we rnoy see the evils of a strong chairmanship by looking at the national scene: the Presidency in the 60's nnd the 70's, During all this time the office was strong. When there was a good president, well-intentioned but shortsighted decisions were made, when there was a bad president, all hell broke loose. More frightening to me is yowdemand that the cooperate with you; it smas of Nixon and Agnew's attempt to silence the press. It is truly saddening to m c that even yotmg radical hip people like Ron Davidson can fall into power traps Wendell Wagner, Jr To "Formn" The recent SEC decision to withhold further money for El Douche is an outrage. Once every two weeks El Douche gives us all a break from the generally stogie humdrum of New College. El Douche provides us all with a few minutes to 1 augh at others as well as ourselves. I'll be damned if I'll allow the "student council po..wer elite" to decide what the students can or cannot read. SEC members generally vote based on personal convictions without consulting the student body. TheEl Douche money matter is no exception. How students were aptroached by a SEC member and asked their opinion on the El Douche money question? It seems to me El Douche is worth more than the $300 the SEC will:ingly appropriated for booze at the Corct1 ation of King David. Why doesn't the SEC throw a non-alchoholic party, where we could release oux inhibitions naturally, and give El Douche the 300 bucks. In the spirit of Lenny Bruce, Frank Zappa, and Don Rickles, EL DOUCHE LIVES! Dave Smolker G RE.ENUJICh IS I' IT\ A ttJ StRElf" J

At the start of mext term they m 'irf petition the Student Court for regulax guest priviledges. However, if any valid complaint is ever received about them at anytime in the future, they will be pexmanent ly banned from campus. PETS from page one animal on campus not wearing a New College registration tag be tak,en to the pound. "I! no one claims him, he doesn't have a master and 4oesn't belong on campus." This action would require the hiring or ap pointing of a campus "dog proctor," which, according to Madge Peck, is provided for in the Student Constitution. Another student suggested that pet owners be forced to assume all responsibility for paying for the fumigation. Eric Lofgren asked Laatsch to give him a week to raise the from the student body without mandatory fees upon them. Laatsch granted him the week, but added that he could not speak for the SEC and, hence that his grant was worthless. Laatsch said after the meeting that, due to the division of student opinion, he doubted that the Town Meeting would have much effect on the final decision of the SEC, which will meet to discuss and de cide upon the issue on Friday, February 9. He did say that, 11it1s not a matt-er of banning and that the meeting reattirmed his previous obset"Vation that the issue was a highly emotional one among New College students. BIOLOGY from page one jobs and later added that a number of applications had been received, although not many seemed suitable. He pointed to the high stan dards New College looks for as one of the problems in hiring faculty. The chances of two women who have submitted applications for the Nat. Sci. posts don't look very good, according to Dr. Buri. One, would only be offered an assistant professors' post, too low a rank for her ten yeax's experience, and wo.uld do no research; the other lS a new graduate, and not well-qualified enough. Dr. Dennis Barrett considered for the Biology position, would have had to be"hired as an associate professor level--the administration-rejected his application because of the salary she would ch-aw and because he would have' to be considered for tenure within three years.

Page four Bread Board A 11 me m hers were in attendance at the second regular meeting of the SEC on Friday, February 2. The meeting ened with a student suggestion, but was dominated by Bread Board proposals and Michael Spaletta, opemng the meeting, suggested that in the Student Government elections a candidate debate be held to bNter acqua lnt students with the various candidates and their proposals. The value of this was recognized, but no mention was made. Following this, the Bread Board brought up eight motions, five oi which were carried. Jim Hunter presented th mo tions for a voice vote by mem bers of the SEC. Most were met with discussion.
