January 25, 1973 a Catalyst Interview ew SEC Chairman Gives Views on a Daryl Laatsch, newly-elected chairman of the SEC, is interested in a better, more active SEC for this term, one that will function as a full committee to coordinate activities and in-ere asc student mf!uence in college decision-making. Active Student Govt. Laatsch is an eighth term student at 'ew College and with academic concentration m Political Science. Although he has never held any student of fices here, Laatscl1 last fall ran for State Senator in his home state of Wisconsin, claiming 359' of the vote. While in office, Laatsch hopes to expand the student roles and influences ; to mcrease involvement within the community. Specifics on immediate policy changes are not available SEC ELECTION RESULTS IN DOUBT at this point. Laatsch feels it necessary to become acquainted with the Committee before definite plans can be annotmced. According to Laatsch, quite a bit of cleaning up needs to be done now, rather than re-organ ization. The constitution calls for a Vice-Chairman to be appointed by the members of the SEC, and this will be one of ACCOUNTS OF BALLOTING CONFLICT New College students recently voted m three elections The first was a referendum which elimmated the requirement that candidates for SEC Chairman, SEC regular members, and Student Court justices turn m petitions. The fol lowin6 week a number of offices were filled in a major election, and three days later a rtm-off election was held for t]-,e position of SEC Chairman. The election results appear elsewhere in this issue. The pur pose of thb af"\. cle b co in" este urn o ntmots: C0n-CeT'ntng the el These minor charl'1,<>S have been made against the SEC chariman run-off election: First, that campaign posters were "'ithin sight of the balloting area, and second, that the election was held at an improper time. A check with Bryan Reid on the election rules revealed the following information: according to the rules governing New college elections, run-offs must be held the day after the original election, and campaigning is indeed illegal within sight of the ballot box. The run-ofis were held on Monday, January 22--three days after the original election. one of Daryl Laatsch's campaign posters was distinctly visible from the voting area. charles Harb, Laatsch's opponent for the office of SEC chairman, is currentl} considering bringing the above two infringements to Student court. He is also considering present ing the argument that the run-off was inadequate!') cized. A sign-up sheet has been posted in Hamilton center, r equesting the n ames of those students who were unaware that a run-off election was held. These, however, constitute onl7 minor infracti ons. A far more serious accusation ha> been made: the ballots in the SEC-Chairman referendum have been tampered with. This reporter spoke with Ron Davidson, who was, at the time of the elections, Elections Chairman, David parsons1 who ht2'lpedcount an(,_i David Lip.:.ey, who o oun-ted votes. THE PARSONS STORY A 21 3 was necess ar} to pass the SEC-chairman referendum, as well as the other two referendums. When all votes had been counted, "something like" 208 votes were cast for the cha irm.ln referendum, and exactly half that number ha:i been cast against it. There were, all together, 300-330 votes. The otber two items on the ballot passed avetwhelmingly. However, when the results of the chairman referendum had been tabulated, "We JUSt stood there and looked at it (the results) ... and decided we needed another vote, one way or the other we may have been in error (in deciding to do this)." "We said, 'let's get somebody else to vote. '" Although the polls had closed hours before, parsons and Ron Davidson to ask passers-by if CATALYST REQUEST TOPS SEC MEETING A special meeting of the newly-elected Student Executive Committee was called Tuesday, January 23, to dis cuss fundjng of the Catalyst. In attendance were Bill Luker, Jim Hunter, Bill Quay, Wen dell Wagner, Candy Boyd, Madge Peck, and Danyl Latsch. Dan Chambliss, Doug Stinson, and Tom Sommers proposed that the SEC pur chase subscriptions for the stu dent body for term n for $1000. Jim Hunter objected to this boost in subscription rate, expressing his feeling that the CATALYST was overrtmning its budget and then commg to the SEC for help. Stinson, Production Manager, said, "We 1re selling a product. You don't have to buy it," to which Editor Chambliss added, "If you want it fine; if not, fine. A$ a stopgap m:-asure, the SEC approved $600 of the $1000 requested. L:...atsch, newly-elected SEC rhairman, expressed interest in :eeing an itemized budget before considering approving any more money. The question was raised whether Catalyst quality could be m aintaincd on less money; Stmson states that this is not possible. Costs are high for a nmn ber of reasons. The Catalyst is publishing thirty issues in stead of the 23 put "ut last year by the Organ, which prmted shorter, sporadic issues Pictures and literary supplements (which also featured woodcuts) add on to publication costs. Reportedly, the Catalyst cannot be without financial support from its readership in the form of SEC money. they had voted, aud, 1! not, if hey would vote at that time. Eventually two people who agreed to vote were found in the snack bar. two people have not been identified. The voters were not encouraged to vote either for or against the referendum. one of the students voted for the referendum, one against, puttmg Parsons and oavidson in the same position they were in before.

Basically, straightening up of the Committee ism order. A secretary is needed to record the minutes of each week ly meeting of the SEC After these are recorded, and cop1es of the agenda made, Laatsch hopes to make these available to the student comm tmity so that the ftmctions of the SEC will not go unnoticed by those not at meetings. 1l::is also allows greater involvment, and Laatsch hope> to cha nge the effect of student: opinion in nl3tt.crs the .-;ol lege community Photo by Ron Barrctl ln the meetings, Laatsch would like to appoint subcommittees for various committees that can work oo proposals dur ing the week.

Our first interest was. of course, the progress we have made toward the challenge for this year. According to Mr. Drabik, we now have over $564, 000 in hand and about $240, 000 more in pledges. About $60,000 in projections gives us near $864,000, leaving us about $136, 000 short at present. A large amount of this money has been donated in the last wee.k, On Wednesday, Jan. 17, Mr. Harry Sudakoff annotmced at a meetin,g that, if we could raise $250, 000, he would give the $50,000 that would put us over the top, At that point we were $300, 000 short, Before the meeting ended, $57, 000 had been pledged, and $78,000 more has been given or pledged since that day, $68, 000 coming in over the INSIDE THIS ISSUE Calendar ................. 4 Cartoon ................. 6 Editorials ................ 2 Forum ................. 2 Goings On ..............

With five trustees still tmcomm i'ted Mr. Drabik is confident t1-.. 1t the remaining necessary money will be acquired in time to meet the Ford Challenge. He was right last year. Other developments include the fact that $6, 800 has come from alumni in the past year, a substantial increase over past years. Also, a program has been introduced in which a person may gain a lifetime membership in the Associates with a single gjft of $10,000. For the future things may be easier, though ftmd raising will never be an easy task, nor an tmimportant one. Drabik expects things to improve next year if we have a President, and potentially big things are coming up.

Page two Editorials First, we refer everyone to the letter on this page from Doug Stinson, former co-editor and present Production mana g e r o f the Cl\ TAL YST. Our only allegiance is to our readers, a total group, students. faculty, trustees. friends of College. We welcome support; but we will not accept anr limitations demanded in return for that support. We try to publish a good newspaper, a \'al uab l e source of information. If our readers lik.., it if our advertisers like it, they will support us. If they don't we shouldn't be a part of the r w College community. We will continue to operate as we s e e fit, and we hope that others will think w e are doing a good job. --"""" -----It seems that every time the SEC conducts an election or similar event so mething goes wrong Third term of last year it conducted the room dra wing, and it w a s almost nece ssary to hold a second one because of several blatant violations of the rules of the drawing. This tarm, however, the inequities have been worse than usual. The problems started last term. The SEC didn't get around to appointing the election Supervisory Committee until two months after the legal limit. Apparently no one on the SEC, including the Chairman, :knew that there was even supposed to be one. To compound the difficulties, all that the SEC did was to give chairman Davidson the right to personally name the members of the committee. It would be impossible to list here all of the alleged infractions, but we will attempt a short list. Several candidates counted votes for the offices for which they ran. During the referendum at least one of the b allot box attendants openly supported the proposal (although she attempted to present both sides of the question), and at one point there were no ballots available for about twenty minutes. At least one bal-lot, and presumably more, in the regular election. had one of the names cut off of the bottom of one page. None of the ballots mentioned the Library Committee. The point of all this i s that if the SEC is going to pretend to be democratic it must create strict election rules and follow them. Rolled up piece s of p aper are not locks More people must be engaged in the counting especially as observers to prevent irregularities. Elections must be publicized well in advance. The ballot must not be "hidden in the dining room. Counting must be done in a publicized and public place. If elections continue to be run in the haphaz ard manner in which they have been nm, the best result will be chaos, the worst, TSM The CATALYST Janu ary 25, 1973 .....___ __ FORUM Dear Dan, I suppose since I am no longer officiall y connected witl1 the editorial staff of the paper I am entitled to write in letters. In particular I would like to c omment on the Cata request that the SEC buy a bulk s ubscription to the Cat for the student body. Last year the SE C. gave the newspaper a small grant of money t o start a newspaper this year. The motivating idea w_as that the SEC felt the pre VlOUS newspapers were very poor, and were not willing to fund a new one until it had proven itself to be worthy of support Apparently we have done more than that, since this term's SEC has come very close to asking us to cut back. As one who put a great deal of time into the newspaper last term in order to make it a paper worthy of the respect of the ew College commun ity, this comes as a bit of a disappointment. Some members of the SEC feel we can cut back without affecting quality. To answer this I can only point out tl1at 1) it is :1 fact that in our at tempt to increase quality the cost rose quite independent!}' : we made no special effort to do more expensive things. The cost rose, in fact, in spite of our efforts to cut costs: just ask our headline setters who manufacture "S's" from "C.'s 11 2:. more pages means more room f o r news and investigative reporting 3) from all the comments I have received photogrsphs definitely add' to the readership of the paper 4) our least expensive papers have been the least interesting, ad have the least cut out the "filler. The Cat alyst receives free several newspapers from many schools acros s the country, m an y larger t han ours, and I d are s ay what we print as filler, they print as front page news. In this bid for economy do we cut back the Calendal and "This Week" type articles in favor of investigations of the Bookstore, etc.? Or in light of the "lack of communications" and "I don't know what's going on do we can the in-vestigative reporting? I really don't see what else you can consider filler. We don't priJ t College Press Service nation:;! news, although it's relevant and interesting; we don't print I.NS or any of the other syndi cated services as a lot of school papersth.

The flag, inverted and at half mast, was tom and frayed. Not the official pennant, it was pressed into service when a similar protest, earlier that day, met with disc:cv: and final censorshiP: it was removed from the pole by a then-anonymous statesman. AS Charles watched, gazing out into the silent world of Hamilton center parking lot, suddenly appeared, in a golden chariot of great length, width, and expanse, a fat, assuming, concerned citizen. AS the candidate watched, he proceeded to the flagpole, there to lower its colors. Fully expecting the intruder to raise his nation's standard to its customary position, Harb acted only when the portly man turned, leaving the shaft unadorned, and strode back to the air-conditioned safety of his car, Harb, being fleet of foot and on his toes aH the time, stopped the theft before the getaway could be enacted, and engaged the culprit in the time-honored socratic question-answer method of attaining knowledge;. uwassa matta U?"

Driving past an hour later, and seeing no actions taken to "COr rect matters, he, not unlike cincinnatus, columbus, and oaytou before him, took matters into his own hands. candidate Harb, once he had ascertained that Mr. Toale whose emporium, located JUSt off Main street, practices discrimination in service to customers, was neither an employee nor an official of the institution, demanded immediate return of the Jolly Roger. Bro-ther Toale. having explained that he took offense to the way "his" chaim was being displayed, suggested that, should Charles wish to pursue the matter further, his next course would be the cummoning of the police. charles thanked him profusely, and did }ust that. Charlie Harb and Stuart Levitan explain their complaint to officer Brewer of the Sarasota Police Dept. Meanwhile, this dry Saturday being a perfect ground for that rare brush fire of excitement, the wor,d, being spread by messengers of the fates, of confrontation, quickly brought a crowd, to swell and ebb as the crisis wore on. volley-ballers slammed the sphere to the ground, foresaking that pleadure to come witness the promised spectacle; a young rna n with dark glasses and red eyes quietly closed his Book of oays and moved swift\-y to the scene; young mothers, hot for kodakking (i'm talking europe) hushed their bawling infants and focused on participants. G. F. "Srewet, pat.rolman, ce Dtiog pollee sar-asota, arrived, dividing the crowd into participants and spectators. As he extracted statements from Mssrs. Harb and Toale, he wasjoined by hus sergeant, with whome he came to share the understanding that Mr. roale, having come onto, and pirated, pri-\ ate property, was acting in defense of his behefs (Or were beliefs his defense?), all the while casting sl11rs on the aesthetic and moral taste of his host. when asked to return the red, white, and blue, Mr. Toale gave a qualifying re-' sponse, which in fact seemed rather coercive. The apple of Betsy Ross's eye would be conditionally returned--the con-1 clition behg that, from that time on, it was flown in accordance with Mr. Toale's wishes. Were we to not agree, he maintained blithely that he would leave us, not fearing arrest for larceny.

It may be a new SEX SURVEY RESULTS RELEASED Last year a sex survey was taken of the New College community by .Ms. Susie Shane as part of her contract require ments. The results are summar izedbelow. The complete report is available from Dr. Jon Culbertson. The survey was taken under the following asumptions: 1) The most natural human state is bi-sexuality, but due to social pressures most people arc heterosexual. 2) 'ew College is in need of mot-e sex education. 3) Considering homosexuality, masturbation, oral-genital and anal sex as perverse is a harmful misconception 490 surveys were distributed ,225 were returned, with 10 of those being blanks or jokes. giving a return. Sixteen percent of all fern ales and 17% of all males were found to be virgins. For the non-vir gins, the age of first intercourse ranged from 13 to 21 years. The Average age for females 16.8 years, while for males it was 17. 9. The returns were grouped into male virgins (MV) female vii-gins (FV), male non-virgins (J\.11\'V) and female non-virgins (FNV). Eighty-five percent of each group expressed some reservations about intercourse. The most often noted reservations were fear of pregnancy and a need for an emotional involve ment. Among NV only males expressed these reservations: concern for partner's feelings, fear of impotence or incompetence: only FNV put down parents's teachings and fca. of being used In answer to the question "What would you do if you were pregnant?" The following answers appeared: abortion (67% FNV, 72% FV, 53% MNV, 21% MV); leaning toward abortion (15% FNV, 6% FV, 6% ?v1NV); have the child FNV, 12S FV, 5<.<. MV); leaning toward having the child (2 % FNV, 29' MNV); get m=ied MNV, So/ MV). Many men said they would leave the decision up to the woman. The participants were asked to label homosexuality, masterbation, oral-genital, and anal sex as either perverted or not perverted. There were very few "perverted's. Anal intercourse recieved the highest: 5% FNV, 4% MNV, FV, S%MV. 27S MNV. 18% FNV, 11 % MV and 6% FV have had some sort of homosexual experience at least once, 88% MNV, 74% MV, 67% FNV, 41 % FV have done or do masturbate, oral-genital sex is practiced by 8S% FNV, 83% MNV, 18% FV, 5% MV; and 25% FNV, 16% MNV, 5% MV and no FV have had or att,mpted anal intercourse.

The statement was adopted by the Council of the American Association of University P--ofessors in April, 1971, and endorsed by the Fifty-seventh Annual Meeting as Association policy. It was endorsed by the Board of Directors of the Association of American Colleges at its June, 1971, meeting. In recent years, and particularly in relation to efforts to define and safeguard the rights of women in academic life, members of the profession have evidenced increasing concern over policies and practices which prohibit in blanket fashion the appointment, retention, or the holding of tenure of more than one member of the same family on the faculty of an institution of higher education or of a school or department within an institution (so-called "antinepotism regulations"). Such policies and practices subject faculty members to an automatic d-ecision on a basis wholly unrelated to academic qualifications and limit them unfairly in their oppoutunity to practice their profession. In addition, they are contrary to the best interests of the institution which is deprived of qualified faculty members on the basis of an inappropriate criterion, and of the community which is denied a sufficient utilization of its resources. The Association recognizes the propriety of institutional regulations which would set reasonable restrictions on an indi vidual's capacity to function as judge or advocate :in specific situations involving members of his or her immediate family. Faculty members should neither initiate nor participate in in stitutional decisions involving a direct benefit (initial appointment, retention, promotion, salary, leave of absence, etc.) to members of their immediate families. The Association does not believe, however, that the proscription of the opportunity of members of an immediate family to serve as colleagues is a sound method of avoiding the occasional abuses resulting from nepotism. Inasmuch as they constitute a continuing abuse to a significant number of indiO vidual members of the profession and to the profession as a body, the Association urges the discontinuance of these policies and practices, and the rescinding of laws and institutional regulations whicb perpetuate them.
