LETTERS Dear Editors, In an effort to reverse the trend toward political impotency in Student Government and therefore in the student polity, two students of heretofore negligible repute have been awarded the task of writing the Constitution for the students of New College. Their success and the resulting success of Student Government at New College depends largely upon the expression of Political Will by the student polity. "A strong constitution is fertile ground for the seeds of Liberty." These words are as true to'day as in the heroic times of better days. Even as you read this letter, self-styled radical elites are seeking the means to turn their opium-induced nightmares into political reality. If a shred of political consciousness is left in the student a well-thought and well-written thereof should be sent to New College box #1 in care of Student Gov't. IIenry Smyth Jear Editor, I would like to have a small ad placed in your student newspaper, so I might receive mail and friendship from some of your students. I am from the SarasotaSiesta Key area, but I am in prison at Marion, Ohio at the present. I have no relatives or friends in this state. I hope by placing this ad, some of my friends might see my address and write. Prisoners -white, doing time in Ohio. 24 yrs old, from Sarasota, needs mail from hometown people. John Dellinger #148-464 and James Billups #145-471, Box 57, Marion, Ohio 43302. Thank you for your help. J. Dellinger ... 0 Dear ::<:ditor, The more students we get (& bless 'em all), the more diificult becomes the faculty's job of maintaining the quality of evaluations of student work. In One, for example, 78 students signed up for "English Literature: Its Forms & Functions." The term-end evaluations for that course were, admittedly, a pot-pourri: four different professors evaluating two different papers on four different literary genres with free-choice topics, cramped onto the page with a rough description of the course, and a note saying whether or not the student had completed his selfevaluation. In such proliferation of comment, there may lie madness. But such madness may be better than the larger Uni versity's A,B,C, and downward. I confess to delinquency, recently, in offering a full and written evaluation of student work. The closer I work with a student in seminar, the more redundant I find a terminal written evaluation. The less closely I work with a student, the less accurate such an evaluation is likely to be. As the spiritualist said, there ain't no happy medium. And yet, as faculty members we often try tc find a straitand-narrow among the by-ways of evaluative rhetoric. That's why, however inadequate those narrative comments may be at the end of the I'd prefer them to the copout of numerical grades, letter grades, or the s:i.mple judgmental phrases of "satisfactory, 11 "unsatisfactory," and "honors." If the rhetoric, the canned and pat phraseology, the merely descriptive information on student evaluations all seem less than worth the effort, perhaps we should remember that the effort itself is part of the achievement of education. If in spite of all efforts, students are still dismayed that they work harder writing a paper than the professor works in evaluating it, then we--collectivelv--might remember that a good college is by definition a place where the students learn more than the professors! Has this letter made any sense? If not, remember--hell, I'd rather write a poem. A. MeA. Miller Humanities

In light of the recent convergence on the Provost to save Prof.s Cartlidge and Riddle from the ranks of the unemployed, and my recently acquired insight into the workings of the Admissions Committee and the tenuring process of faculty members, I would like to voice my disgust concerning some of the disheartening trends of New College. Namely, what's happening to the arts at this supposedly liberal arts college, is student input into the.various policies of the ever ser1ously considered and is somebody out there trying to make this institution as boring as a rerun of"Father Knows Best"? As Herb Guggenheim pointed out in his letter to the Catalyst editor in the Education issue last November, the creative mind is getting scarcer around here. I think cited recruitment of fewer of the eccentr1c culturally-interested type students and a lack of stimulation of the artistic side of our brains once we get here as the cause of this problem. I feel that the loss of two of the more open-minded, creative in-fluences from the faculty could deal a fatal blow to the student who takes the initiative to experiment with the arts. As for the possibility of recruiting more creative personalities as students, I am very pessimistic as to whether any changes will be made in the Admissions office. Recently I was speaking with a member of first term's Admissions Committee and I asked why he called it a "rubber stamp committee". He said that "all we did was read transcripts and application letters, vote on whether or not the individual deserved to come here, and Then Millie Ellis told us whether or not we were right." I'm not saying that all the students Admissions are recruiting are poorly chosen, although I do see a trend towards the decidedly pre-law or pre-med types who never step out of these fields far enough to notice other students' artistic output, let alone produce something themselves. The point here is that, again, student input into the policy making is either negligible, non-existent or ignored. Regar.Hng recent effort of the students to the decision of the Humanities Division and the Provost Advisory Committee to not tenure two faculty members, I feel most of the students thir1k the process is unfair and that the students' concerns have been unjustifiably neglected. Having done only one ISP under Ron Riddle and not knowing Jack Cartlidge I'm not qualified to decide for myself whether they are good or bad professors, but the meeting with George Mayer on Monday made me aware of other students' opinions and concerns. I feel the worst thing to come out of the meeting besides the obvious disregard for student input into the tenuring process, is that most of the students feel that certain members of the Humanities Division cast their votes not on the basis of whether the professors are capable of stimulating student interest or communicating with the students on a level which the student is comfortable with, but on the basis of a personality conflict with the professors in question. In any case it appears to me that both Riddle and Cartlidge are bearing all the difficulties of being one-man departments, and po0rly funded departments at that, in a manner far from incompetent. Hell, these are the concerns of one student who firmly believes in putting some "self" and some direction back into the self-directed learning aspect implicit in the program of any alternative school. I don't know, draw your own conclusions. Greg Vickers Jul Lancer, Owner Complete Musicel & Professionel Equipment 11127 MAIN STREET/SARASOTA, FlA. 331177 (1131311-1111

Educational Policy Statement The following is a memo to the Educational Policy Committee from Professor Lee Snyder, regarding a proposed new Statement of Purpose for long term projection. The basic purpose of New College is to provide quality education for the gifted wi:-!-:Jn the State university system. This means: 1) that it is not job-oriented, narrowly professional or rigidly disciplinary: 2) that it is rather first of all student-oriented, highly individualized and flexible, believing that gifted students must be given a maximum of freedom .to develop their special abilities and to discover their commitm:!nts; 3) that it is also quality-oriented, demanding, accelerated, both solid academic achievement and thoughtful questioning, rising to level of Master's degree work in the senior year. This means: 1) that it prepares students for admission to the best graduate schools in a variety of fields; 2) that it prepares students for admission to the best professional schools by providing them with a broad base for future growth and an interdisciplinary prospective 3) that it generally provides all students with the mental skills needed for a productive life in any field. This means: 1) that it encourages each student to develop his/her own special creativity, through stimulus and challenge, through opportunities for self-expression, through continuing efforts to see old. problems in new perspectives; 2) that it encourages each student to find a point of intergration for his/ her life,a way of relating thought to action, person to society, truth to truth, and self to values. This means: 1) that it tries to instill in each student a "cultural awareness", appreciation for the strengths and weaknesses of the complex historical tradition of which he/she is a part in contrast with other cultures; 2) that it tries to instill in each student a "social awareness", an appreciation of the complexity and interdependence of society; 3) that it tries to instill also an "ecological awareness", an appreciation of the rhythms and patterns of the natural world.

11u U!t4f.d-=------------Police State A "Search and Seizure" Seminar was held last Thursday and Friday at Hamilton Center. Sponsored by the Criminal Justice Department of the University of South Florida, it brought over 100 judges, prosecutors, and police. officers to campus. Some of the participants took it upon themselves to patrol the dorm area, attempting to initiate the arrest of two students in SecondCourt. It seems that these officers--Seriff's Deputies from the Manatee County Sheriff's office--spotted marijuana being cultivated out on a balcony overlooking Palm Court. They complained to Uncle Walt Hooper, who sent the ever intrepid Paul Shideler out to investigate. Accompanied by Dale Hartman (no one else would go) Shideler went up and confiscated the offensive herbs. The case will be handled through student affairs, and is not serious at this point. More serious, however, is the invasion of community privacy and lack of respect--these people were guests on campus, and that is a twisted way to show one's gratitude for our (involuntary) hospitality. Brown Visits New USF President Dr. John Lott Brown paid a visit to New College last Tuesday. He spoke to a small band of students and faculty in the morning, and spent the afternoon with local legislators and the media. In an afternoon conference in South Hall, Dr Brown addressed himself to a number of specific questions directly concerning the future of New College within the University. He seemed to have a clear understanding of the various legislative approaches possible on behalf of New Col lege, mentioning a proposed bill in which added funds are secured from the state for "Programs of Distinction "(that's us) and a bill calling for matching funds from the state to double the Foundation contribution When questioned as to the possibility of a re-analysis of the punitive State Funding Formula (where our per-student funding level is averaged over four quarters instead of our calender three), he replied that it was felt that the legislature "would probably not favor any change in the original merger agreement at this time." Commenting on the Role and Scope document, Brown emphasized what little effect this article would have on New College. He pointed out that New College is clearly not regionally focused but is a state-wide and national program. Dr. Brown's remarks about New College were very positive and he seemed sensitive to the importance ot maintaining our identity within the University.Perhaps some of this optimism was due to his inexperience with the Florida State System.None the less,he seems more accessible and open than previous administrations.

1977 YALE YOUNGER POET TO GIVE READING, SEMINAR Bin Ramke will present a reading and seminar at New College the first weekend in March. He is the recepient of the Yale Younger Poet's Award for his book The Difference Between Night and Day. In making his first selection as author of the series, Richard Hugo, author of six books of poetry, and head of the creative writing program at the Univ. of Montana If wrote: Ramke s generos1ty 1s rare ... He goes to more parts of the self than do most poets, and what we receive is not simply a tune played well (though that to) or a staace convincingly held, but an open invitation to experience as much of the poets total sensibility as he can locate. It takes an imagination gifted in special ways to create good poems out of the diffuse worlds we carry inside. Bin Ramke's imagination has these special gifts." Bin Ramke was born in Texas in 1947. He earned a Ph D in English from Ohio Cui v and for two years was Editor of the Ohio Review. He now teaches English at College, Georgia. The Difference Between Night and Day, to be published by Yale University Press next April, describes an attempt to live in a world where choice is impossible, and the reality of the day drives out the imaginative possibilities of the night. The poetry which follows is part o f a collection entitled Any Brass Ring. It is Teprinted from The Ohio Review, Fall 1977 by permission of the author. Anniversary Waltz Each spring we dance as if we're hollow boned no good for walking on two feet, hands for flying We have known each other too long to take this seriously. We are married in mind which is to say we are tired, but this one night we dance and someone plays a tight small trumpet like he knows us and wishes us better than we wish ourselves.

MEDITATIONS OF A GREASER (N.B. -The book being referred to in this essay is Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig. The book is written in the form of a journal during a cross country bike trip. I feel that the book is relevant to our situation in two ways, as a comment on educational structure and as an understanding of the value of physical e.xpression through manual production. This quote might help: "The study of the art of motorcycle maintenance is really a miniature study of rationality itself. Working on a motorcycle, working well, caring, is to become a part of the process, to achieve an inner peace of mind. The motorcycle is primarily a mental phenomenon. The real cycle you're working on is a cycle called One final point-Pirsig had been an educator and was harassed by his colleagues and administrators for his unconventional teaching methods.) The University and the university The 'university' -glass, bricks, dirt, wood, sewer pipes that which one can touch with one' s hands. The 'University'-the thought, the concept a frame of mind. The 'University' is not permanently bonded to the 'university' like paint on a wall. A concept cannot be purchased or hired, ordered around or controlled. A 'Univer sity' implies a cosmic entity, the free learning process, in existance as long as the transfer of ideas has existed. Does this sound like a building that can be locked up at night? The concept of the 'University' at New College existed much before the brown tiles of the 'university' were picked. But, nothing is forever -a contract for a term can either-be a concept of a 'Uni ver r or it can be a piece of paper on a 'university' dorm room wall. Securing the conceptual 'Universitv' by putting a few catchall phrases in an admissions booklet is no more possible than keeping love ina plastic bag. The energy herP -positive, inquisitive, learning, teaching, feeling -cannot be listed in a college catalogue alongside, say, the pool or classrooms, which physically exist. Educational Balance Balanced education -balanced from within the student. The need to balance the physical with the mental. Only the practicing artists here have this balance as an integral part of their experience. Typing a paper or doing a lab per week does not sufficiently incorporate the mind and body. In such a high level educational environment there must be some physical to stabilize the mental. Think of those you have known whose channel to stability has been a physical craft. Not everyone can talk to a motorcycle, so we look around for a more accessable medium. Art and music fit the bill perfectly. We have all been exposed to them all our lives, the introductions have been made. Also, sculpture, pottery, and music have better liberal arts credentials than motorcycle mechanics. And the process: mind -reality -concept -experimentationproduct -Failure -thought action -Failure -product -refinement Art, integration -who can deny the validity of this interaction? Now back to the distinction between the 'University' and the 'university.' In the book the author uses a story about a church to illustrate his point. It seems that a certain church's attendance had dwindled and eventually closed its doors. The building was sold to a saloonkeeper who

PAGE 14

opened a tavern there. The few remaining parishioners were incredibly offended because this "sacred ground" was being used as a bar. The author saw this as a perfect example of the spiritual-material confusion that haunts people. When one truly considers the situation, one realizes that to have been offended is to devalue the concept of god. Imagine god being stuck in the foundation and support beams of a church building? God as a spiritual entity deserves its own energy, and the building as something that was conceived in the mind and constructed, deserves its own re-spect. "The Buddha, The Godhead, resides quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain or the petals of a flower. To think otherwise is to demean the Buddha -which is to demean oneself." If I seem to be zigzagging between the concept of the two universities and my defense of manual endeavors, well, I am but I am not. I believe that the conceptual University existed here at New College. There existed that state of mind, the holistic outlook with the appreciation of the balance of and theory. But we are losing that feeling. Perhaps pure theory is more respectable to the confines of an honors program? I don't know. Jack Cartlidge relayed a quote to me from a famous violinist, who said,"If I don't practice for one day, I notice. If I don't practice for two days, my audience notices." on the track team in high school won't you in shape when you are forty, any more than a book you read ten years ago will help you write a paper on it now. Just as the component parts -body and mind -must be exercized, the integration of the two must be constant. We must realize that the mind-body duo is inseparable and that if one haH falls to disuse the other will suffer. It is one thing to sit in a class of 130 students and be told what art is, and it is quite another to experience throwing a pot. This is also true with instructors. One cannot lecture, in a complete sense, about a technique that one has not used in 10 years (or at all). Jack Cartlidge and Ron Riddle are both examples of the combination of practicing artist and teacher. Contrast this to a pure theorist or a retired artist. Learning from an artist is to become part of an experience, rather than an observer at a lecture. Here are two peorle whQ are willing to sponsor an indfvidual trying to make a physical reality out of an educational concept. Both are aware that learning is not limited to courses listed in a 'university' honors program. To evaluate the learning experience of the student, rather than a mere objective evaluation of a final product is. the essence of an education. The intellectual 'University' strives for the development of an individual within himself, rather than a societally acceptable product a cement and bricks 'university' honors pt:ugram, So where does that leave us? Do we continue with the standard New College student attitude of "We're only lkere for 3 years. There is only so much the place can deteriorate in 3 years, and if I waste time trying to change things I'll end up being here for so long that the place will get worse," or do we look for a less used line? Some times our mobility works against us every one knows, in the back of their minds that if the immediate surroundings get bad enough we can leave. Sometimes the physical university is as hard to control as the conceptual one, However we cannot look to cement and bricks for support. For the 'University' to have any meaning,:it must have the active support of its students. Armen Armirian FL.OAIDA. 'e LA,.GC8T SELI!:CTION UsEe WE BUY SELL TRACE 1!531 MAI N ST 915!5 -2989. SA ..

S.E.C. RESOLUTE At the meeting of January 27, 1978, the S.E.C. passed a resolution calling for a letter stating that: 1) a majority of students at New College are dissatisfied with the P.A.C. 's decision to deny tenure to Jack Cartlidge and Ron Riddle. 2) student opinion, as shown through faculty evaluations and other forms of expression, be given its due respect in these matters. It is quite obvious to the students that talents of these faculty members are of the highest caliber, and that they are truly needed. They would be impossible to replace. Please realize that they are the keys to both a well rounded education at New College and an intellectual balance within the faculty. With the support of the S.E.C., the Campus Council, and the general student population (as demonstrated through the large number of positive letters <.:)J.-1 the meeting with you in South that :;rour vote to secure tenure of Jack Cartlidge ::md Ron Riddle would rest on solid ground. Respectfully, (signed) Robert S. Teti S.E.c.
