THE C:ATALVST A Student l'uhlication of New College Don't give a damn if Kirk does meet Picard MAC LAB ON ITS WAY Kristina Rudiger The Mac Lab has been making impressive strides in its efforts to diversify the computer equipment and accessories available to students. Within the most recent weeks the lab, located in both HCL and the Ham Center Publications office, has added to its array of ix computer Four brand-new Quadra 630s with 8 meg RAM and 250 mb hard drives purchased from Apple, as well as a NC Foundation-donated Mac II (13" screen) and SE with a full-page display constitute the recent expansions. Funding has created some obvious roadblocks to the progress of the Mac lab in the past. None of the money intended for the purchase of computers has come from University (USF) funding. In the late 1980 a few Macs were purchased by the Campu Council with Student Government support. This year, however a generous $10,700 was allocated by SAC to the Mac lab for the purcha e of the four new Quadras, two top-of-the-line Hewlett-Packard (600 dpi) laser printers (which have been come to be affectionately k.11own by the students as Big Dog and Fred), and new hardware, while $1000 "MAC LAB II CONTINUED ON PAGE 6 BASKETBALL FIGHT UPDATE Kate Fink Three area residents arc being charged with battery for as aulting McGee Young November l on the basketball court According to Sgt. 0' Casio of campus police, Young ha signed an affidavit with the state attorney' office indict ing the three men. Eyewitnesse say Young was assaulted after a ten e evening of play at the court. There had been frequent physical contact between Young and his assailants, which led to the fight. Young would not comment on the incident. Sgt. O'Casio said campus police had completed their investigation of the fight, and had forwarded the information to the tate attorney's office. The assailants are not students at Manatee Community College, as previously reported. Sgt. 0' Casio would not reveal their names, citing a "privacy act." Volume IV, Issue 12 November 16,1994 FORGETTING VETERAN'S DAY James Reifel/ Last Friday was Veterans Day, a nationwide excuse to sleep in and catch up on rest. In some circles Flag-waving and mindless patriotism wa the order of the day. At New College, Veteran's Day was for the most part ignored: classes were held and it was business as usual. I disagree with tho e that "celebrate" Veterans Day War is too grim a matter to ever be an occasion for celebration, except when one is averted or ended. Celebrations, e pecially those that focus on the glory of war rather than the sacrifice of the veterans disturb me, as do tho e that peak of "defending the flag" and other such sloganeering. I put in with this crowd the snide ign you might have seen in Ham Center "thanking" NC tudents for honoring Veterans Day; although I thank the sign makers for reminding me of the date and highlighting the (lack of) campu reaction. On the other end of the spectrum we have New College. Much has been said about the apathy and obliviousness of New College students, some exaggerated, some right on the mark, but suffice it to say I am hocked that New College students would pas up any opportunity to miss class. ( otice any UP tudents around on Friday?) If forced to actually ponder the significance of Veteran Day, the gut response of many at New College would be "Why hould I celebrate war?" Since I think that Veteran Day should be neither about celebration nor war, it is hard for me to argue with this view It is it stronger cousin, the idea that, "If every one refused to go to war, to enlist, or be drafted, then we would have no war. Why hould I honor those who did?" that I take i ue with. The ugly implication in this is that veterans are therefore guilty of causing war, which i only a few hort steps from shouting "baby-killers" to returning soldier from Vietnam. Simplistically the view is correct. If there wa a war and no one showed up ... there would be no war. However, this view is "VETERAN'S DAY" CONTINUED ON PAGE 4
2 The Catalyst November 16, 1994 BOARD OF TRUSTEES DISCUSSES FUTURE Rocky Swift The Board of Trustees meeting last Thursday and Friday brought back positive news in the direction New College is heading. The Educational Plans committee brought up the school's need for more than one professor in each department. This problem is especially apparent in the foreign language departments. The Student Affairs Committee addres ed the possibility of acquiring a van for student use. The Development Committee gave a status report on a campaign to raise endowment to 32 million dollars. The kickoff for this campaign will begin January 24, with 11 million already collected. These are the funds that supplement the state funds to provide the quality of education we receive here. The New College Foundation has collected 56 million dollars in endow ment since 1980. Dean Michalson stated his hope to make New College more diverse in its faculty and in library resources. Another main issue discussed throughout the meeting was the need to improve the natural sciences division with more equipment and facilities. A $500, 000 dollar grant was given by Dallas Dort to begin work on the new residence hall, which should be com pleted in a couple of years. The committee also discussed the goal to raise New College attendance from 520 to 650 without changing the 10:1 student/teacher ratio KIZLIK AVOIDS TRIAL Graham Strouse A chemical analysis by the Manatee County Sheriff's Office revealed that the beer bottle bomb fashioned by New College's ersatz terrorist Steve Kizlik was in fact flammable. According to the District Attorney's Office, the bomb "was what we expected." They did not elaborate. The incendiary is believed to have been filled with two ounces of isopropyl rubbing alcohol. The good news is that Kizlik won't go to trial. Kizlik, who chose not to take the case to court, was instead referred to a pretrial intervention program by the DA's office. This program for first-time offenders requires Kizlik to undergo a year of probation and perform an as-yet-undis closed amount of community service. Assuming he does not violate these terms his record will be wiped clear at the end of the term SAN FRANCISCO STYLE HEALTHY MEXICAN FOOD 1430 MAIN ST.

The Catalyst November 16, 1994 3 LOW TURNOUT AT POLICE FORUM Sara Foley Showdown in the Fishbowl! See the rage on the student's faces a they blast the police for encroaching upon their turf! Feel the tensiOn as the police wielded the awesome defensive weaponry of the Law in an attempt to make New College a militarized sovereignty of the state of Florida! Who will emerge victoriousMight or Right? And at what cost? Okay, so I'm exaggerating. Actually, what took place Ia t Wednesday night at 6:00 or thereabouts was a friendly, open forum where tudents and police could air any problems they had with one another in a face-to-face, round table discussion. Unfortunately, no one knew about it. When I rushed into the Fishbowl at 6 : 05, the only other students present were Ed Moore and Ben Wolkov. Student Affairs Director Mark Johnson, Officers Roarty, Lange, and Shideler, and NC alum Bill Rosenburg were having some kind of discussion relating to police jurisdiction, but they were obviously hoping some more students would come in before they formally opened the meeting. I asked if I had time to go out and get a drink, to which someone responded "Yeah, sure, and when you come back, bring one (student, pre umably) under each arm." So I proceeded to get my drink and some yogurt and headed back to the Fishbowl, set the good on the table, headed out again, made my way through Ham Center and notified any students who happened to be in my line of vision about the meeting. The response was marginal, with the few verbal reactions including uch gems as "Oh," "What meeting?" and ''I'm not a cop-student!" However, my mission was not com pletely in vain because two students did join the group before the meeting began The major topic of the evening, were, in chronological order : the problems with noise complaints and wall shutdowns, the I.D check of two students at B-Dorm, and the Steve Kizlik incident. There was also a great deal of interest hown in establishing a regular forum between students and the police. Throughout the evening about fifteen other students wandered in and out of the discussion at random intervals If students expect or want a change in the police policy or relations with students on this campus then they need to take the initiative in communicating with the officers. The police aren't evil, they ju t want our respect. We need to appreciate the good things the cops do for u but also let them know when we have problems with their actions so that our relationship improves and doesn't deteriorate. Apathy does not lead to change SAC MINUTES Monday, November 7, 1994 Members in attendance: Amy Laitinen, Jeanette Schmitz as proxy for Sara Kuppin, Rocco Maglio, Meg Moore, Adam Stone (chair), Stephanie Weiss The Meeting went as follows : Kunoichi waza, Women's Self Defense (Ninjutsu)-funds requested by Anne Tazwell but it was asked that he first explore other funding options like the fitness center. Dance-$1 ,500 requested by Anne Tazwell as a speaker fee for Zuleikha. $500 was provided as a base to explore additional funding options, more may be allocated later. Social Justice Speaker-$343 was requested and allocated by Tony Lenzo and the Campus Interfaith Series Group for Fr. Jerry Zawada, a Catholic priest active in both anti-nuclear and Latin American issues, to speak on December 5, and 20 of it for refreshments. Empowered Womyn in Film$50 was allocated to fund the series through ISP, as well as $5/film for food Coffeehouse-$15 requested and allocated for food. Ping Pong-$14.81 to reimburse Nick Napolitano for his purchase of paddles and balls. Slavic Vocal Concert-$100 reque ted and allocated for food at the November 19 Slavic Vocal Concert. Jukebox Repair-a new needle is going to be bought, if it doesn't work then someone is coming in to look at the jukebox in two weeks A $200 maximum on needed repairs was set.

4 The Catalyst November 16, 1994 "VETERAN'S DAY" CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 limited in two ways. First of all it denie the view that a war to accomplish good aims i possible, that it may be a good and moral thing to become a soldier, ri k death, and even kill, for some cau es. I'm not sure that I sub cribe to that view, but I am also not going to reject it and those who believe it as absolutely wrong I would rather imply honor the memory of those veteran who believed that what they did was necessary and ju t, and the acrifices they made. The second, and for me more personal reason I disagree with the "Why should I care?'' view, is that it tends to be made from a certain position. Mo t New College students do not have parent who went to or died in Vietnam, our most recent and bloodie t war. Thi for the simple reason that mo t C student come from parents who were college students, or educators, or otherwise exempt from the draft. They have few personalties with veterans, and many have not heard first hand account of the horror of Vietnam or other wars. A college student were the draft to be reinstated, C student would be exempt, and mo t of us are headed for further education or other exempt status. A a predominantly white and middle class school, we do not have the economic impetu to enli t, and we would be immune to the promi e of pen ion training, and the GI bill. We have a history of di trust of government to help us see through empty promises and propaganda In short, we arc in a po ition to make a moral choice not available to most of the country, and we will probably never be forced to make such a choice. To give orne idea of what I am talking about, I'll tell you about my father. He moved to this country a few years before Vietnam. There is a little known part of the draft law that forces resident noncitizens to enli tor face deportation, but that is not the only reason my father enlisted. He had moved here from Britain and was filled with the kind of patriotism found only in immigrants to this country. Not mindless God and country flag -following, but an honest gratitude towards the US for providing them with things not present in their first country, be it more freedom or more opportunity or simply a new tart. The majority of veterans, like my father, served for simple reasons. They had to, because of the draft, or for eco nomic rea ons, or for the opportunities it gave. The wanted to give something for their country. They wanted to see other land Few joined with the intention of killing, or (more accurately) as with my father and the majority of Vet to hang around and be shot at without being able tore pond. Few under tood the real reasons for the war, and none fore aw the hell that Vietnam was to become. They may have been deluding them elves to think that the war had to do with anything other than killing and dying, but they had help in that delu ion from the military and the government. There were no more fervent antiwar demonstrators than tho c who had been in Vietnam. There are no more genuine pacifists than those who have een war and experienced it themselves. My father came out of the war hating it and all war a did many of hi friends those that came back. I want those who ay that war is the fault of those who went to war to come with me to Washington DC. to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and to look around at the faces. That one, the man in tears, who is crouching to put a note beside the wall under the name of his dead friend, are you willing to tell him that the war was hi fault? Are you willing to look at that name, the name of a boy who died in agony in a swamp far from home, and tell him that it was his fault that the boy died, and the boy next to him, and the boy next to him ... ? Arc you willing to tell me that the war and all the killing was my father's fault? I am a pacifist. I think that the Vietnam war should never have been allowed to happen. I do not think I would have gone, but will probably never have to make that choice-and if I did it would be a choice, which is more than was given to many who went to Vietnam On Veterans Day I will not celebrate. I will not forget, either. I will honor those who died and those who lived and went to war and I will fight like hell to prevent any future wars so that I and tho e around me will never have to make that choice. 3913 Brown Avenue Sarasota, Fl 34231 Voice/Fax (813) 365-3658 Monday through Saturday 9 a.m.5 p.m. Closed Sunday 10% DISCOUNT OFF PURCHASE WITH STUDENT l.D.
The Catalyst November 16, 1994 5 SON OF JEB Graham Here's one from the Vicious Slander Division of the Hit Them While They're Down Department: Most NC tudents know a little about Jeb Bush, that homo neandrethalis of a Texas tycoon who so recently turned his greedy, mealy-faced gaze upon our fine state. At the very least, we all know Bush lost the gubernatorial race to Lawton "He Coon" Chiles. Fact is, Jeb Bush is nothing more to most of u than a man who sucked down one too many trips of beef jerky; to most of us, he's Mr. Evil and nothing more. What we often fail to realize, however, is that Jeb Bush is in many ways, just a man; a man with wants, needs, and desires; a man with a family. New College students Cristina Steele and Tal Greenberg have a very special perspective on ol' Jeb. They knew his son. Cri tina went to Gulliver Prep school with George Bush the Younger. "George was kinda strange", said Cristina. According to Cristina, George "was very conservative. He was quiet unless provoked at which point he stopped at no end to prove you were the dumbest person on the face of the planet." George didn't say much most of the time. He just at around observing people haughtily while his secret service agents lurked in the hallways. George was apparently aVe uvian sort of fellow, timid until the conver ation turned political, at which point he popped like a shaken soda can, like the time during one class in which an incorrect opinion on the abortion issue sparked a half hour harangue. Tal first met George during an extemporaneous speaking competition last year. Tal, urn, concurred with most of Cristina's observations. "He kind of has this stupor to him, this slumping over ... Just to make matters worse for the G-meister, his secret service agents were much more popular than he was. "They were cool;" said Cristina. "they were neat." George had four agents, two of which were following him at any given time. At first they were quite conspicuous. Like any good secret service agents, George's felt compelled to wear dark sunglasses and those stupid little ear transmitters at all times. Their initial efforts to blend in with the students were not terribly successful. One agent, known only as "Bob" made a habit of showing up at school in "white lacks with an extremely loud shirt." Eventually, Bob began to catch on that he wa a httle behind the times. He started wearing jeans and polo shirts. Agents Bob and Rich were the coolest of the spooks, once they loosened up of course. They played volleyball with George's classmates, helped students superglue pennies into doorlocks, and at one point assisted in the release of horde quantities of crickets and cockroaches. An "anonymous" tipper turned them in. "Everyone knew it was George", aid Cristina. Jeez, what kind of a kid would turn in his own secret service agents? Try imagining a couple of federal agents in dark glasses, their guns just barely peaking out from under their jackets, staring sheepishly at their feet while beaky high chool principal chews their cud? Kinda makes you wonder, doesn't it? Ala young George's agents fell into the background last year. George meandered through his senior year of high school, graduated and moved on to some chool in Texas. Hi legacy however, lives on. "George was just kind of there", said Cri tina. "I liked his hair," said Tal. "He had good hair." What more can you ask from in an almost-governor's He had a crew cut, though. I liked that. Remember that guy on son? Frasier, Frasier's brother, he was like that." "I saw his name on the list and made a Bush joke [without realizing he was the Bush]. It turned out he was George Bush III." "I beat him. We were in a round together. I beat him in the quarterfinals." "He didn't really have any views on anything. He was a hred of a human being; just a hodgepodge of political non entities. I kind of felt sorry for him. He had this look like he was continually picked upon." "He didn't smell, though. That was good." DON' T WAIT TO MAKE HOLIDAY AIRLINE RESERVATIONS! ...

6 The Catalyst November l6, 1994 "MAC LAB" CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 of this money is in reserve for completion of the proposed Internet project. In addition $1,600 was allocated for new software and approximately $8,500 to cover service contracts, repairs and TA salaries. In Spring of this year, former Campus Computing Director Lynn Ryan identified a need for increased access to the Internet. Currently, students have limited access to the Internet through the Westide IBM lab or from their personal computers. USF-re tricted lab hours and a limited number of dial-up lines, however, make Internet access difficult. For these reasons, an Internet project, to be financially supported by the Foundation and Housing through Student Affairs Director Mark Johnson's office is being initiated. It has been estimated that the project will cost in or around $2,800 for connection to the Publications Lab alone. Ideally, however, the fiberline networks which make the Internet communications possible would eventually be installed in 30 to 40 on-campus buildings. Interrelated with the Internet connection project, the Mac Lab is also in the planning stages of a proposed conversion from the current Local Talk networking system to a more technologically advanced Ethernet system. Currently, Local Talk allows all the computers in both the HCL Mac Lab and the Publications office to be connected to a mainframe server, allowing hardware to be accessed without a supplemental internal "card" or wasted memory for the individual terminals. However, due to the short-distance nature and design of the Local Talk system, the current set-up is inefficient and makes the computers run far lower than they theoretically should. In fact, the Local Talk network is recommended for connections between computers which are le s than 300 ft away from one another; the considerably larger distance between the Publications Lab and the HCL lab presents a challenge to this intended-use recommendation. The Ethernet system, which is to be installed in the Publications Lab, is expected to greatly enhance the overall functioning and speed of the computers in this area. In anticipating the installation of this network, the two new printers were ordered "Ethernet-ready," eliminating the potential problem of equipment capability. Mac Lab Coordinator Ari Weinstein is currently explonng the refurbishing of the HCL Mac Jab as well. As it stands, a community resident ha hown an interest in donating some computers to help the modernization of the lab. Eventually, it is hoped that the HCL lab will offer all new equipment, including more advanced computers than the current Mac Classics and SEs, as well as the addition of a new printer. As with any such grand-scale refurbishing project, there is always anticipation of potential complications. In reference to the new equipment, Mac Lab coordinator Ari Weinstein explained the process of "problem shooting by use." With new equipment, the most common way in which software and set-up glitches are diagnosed and fixed is when a student recognizes a problem and reports it to the computer TAs. At least, this is what is hoped for. When asked how he viewed student treatment of the available Mac equipment, Weinstein responded, "[In general], the computers are handled poorly. The way it has been in the past is that no one has been around to help tudents." He continued, "this is changing now that we have four TAs in tead of two." TheTAs areal o currently working to fix what Hal Issac on explained to me to be "a loop in the server," a complication which make even the brand-new Quadra run annoyingly low. In order to fix it, the computers will have to be shut down for three to four hour at a time, infringing on tudent access for paper-writing or the notorious late-night Civilization game-playing. However, TA's have been consi tently exploring the source of the problem, and pent several hours during this past weekend attempting to pinpoint the functional quirks of the system. Mac Lab TAs are available not only to assist tudent with the computer in both the HCL and Publication Lab, but with personal computers and potential purchase queries as well. TAs are available during the following hours and area also available for additional a i tance at their per onal phone number posted in Ham Center and on the door to both Mac Labs: Monday, Thursday and Friday, 1 1 -l pm; Tuesday and Wednesday 9-11 pm; Saturday, 2-4 pm; and Sunday 12-2 pm.

In an handwritten letter addressed to h1s "fellow Americans Mr. Reagan wr0te that he was feeling fine, but that he and his wife, Nancy, had chosen to reveal the diagnosis in the hope of promoting greater awareness of the disease. When the Lord calls me home, whenever that may be I will leave with the greatest love for this country of ours and eternal optimism for the future, Reagan wrote. "I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead." The results are in, and they show a sweeping success for Republicans across the country including victorie for every republican congressional and gubenatorial candidate who ran for reelection this year. Although Jeb may not have enjoyed the success that many of his fellow G.O.P candidates (including his brother) did, there can be no doubt that Ia t week' results will have a dramatic effect on the balance of power between the two parties. For the first time since at lea t 1953 the House and Senate will both be controlled by the Republicans. Bill Clinton took his share of the blame for the Democrat's problem at the polls, and vowed to work together with G.O.P leader Bob Dole to give the American people what they want. A new study suggests that beta-carotenoids, substances found in dark green and yellow vegetables may have a signifi cant effect on our health Researchers at the University of North Carolina reported that incidents of heart attacks among men who ate vegetables like squash and spinach were up to 70% lower than those who didn't. Less than a week after 6 7 million dollars had been awarded to a former Navy helicopter pilot in the Tailhook sexual harassment scandal, Navy officials began investigating another incident of sexual harassment. At least 16 young female students complained that a number of instructors at the International Communications "A" School of the Service School Command verbally and physically harassed them. With a new "zero tolerance" policy and increased sensitivity training the Navy has taken an initiative to deal with sexual harassment cases seriously. In an unrelated case, three football players at West Point Academy were suspended from the team and given 80 hours of marching discipline for sexually harassing several cheerleaders during a pre-game run.
