"Better than Cats." SAC ALLOCATIONS DISCUSSED AT TOWNE MEETING Sara Foley NCSA president, Ed Moore, opened discussion with clarifications concerning NCSA elections and a pool update, but the focus of the evening quickly shifted to the recent SAC allocations of September 17th. Chair of allocations, Amy Laitcnen, and acting chair, Adam Stone, as well as other mem bers of the SAC were on hand to discuss the funding decisions. Jake Reimer, a first-year SAC member, seemed happy to discuss allocations ... "it seems like it's good to have communication about the things we [The SAC] do ... we have nothing to hide." This year's proposals for fall allocations totalled $132,628.00; of that,$64,797.19 from the $90,000.00 NCSA budget. The largest chunk of funding went to the MAC-Lab; other significant allotments went to the playground, the radio station, the Race and Gender Symposium, and the Sailing Club (see page 3). SAC members made it clear that funding decisions were based on what they believed would benefit the entire student body; in some cases groups were denied funding because their requests only met the needs of a handful of people. In addition, SAC members justified other funding refusals by citing general vagueness in proposals and insufficient research into other funding sources (such as the New College Foundation) as criterion for rejection. It was suggested that those groups rejected funding could submit reworked proposals to the SAC, as allocations continue throughout the year. Other items of interest covered at the Towne Meeting included plans to build the bike shop in the Fitness Center storage space appear to be on track; a meeting including Dean Schenk and Judy Ronigan is require before the decision is finalized. Also, sculptures and student government mailboxe were two recommendations for the future of the old P.O. boxes, which wiU be moved when the new boxes are ready for use. Volurne LV, Issue 6 Septenilier 28, 1994 AND NOW, CAPTAIN KIRK Hey Folks! My name's Ed Moore, and in case you didn't know, I'm the president of the New College Student Alliance (NCSA), New College's (official) student government. If you're an enrolled New College student, then you're one of us, whether you like it or not. Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know what's going on with me and student government in general. So here goes: I was elected last ovember, and I'll be in office through that time this year. The role of NCSA president is set out in our Constitution, which focuses on the various responsi bilities the position brings with it Since I came here in the fall of 1990, we've had six presidents, and their styles of leadership have varied considerably. For my part, I've tried to emphasize my role as facilitator, mediator, organizer, &c. It's important for you to keep in mind that I really have no more power or access to administrators than anyone else. I get to sign a lot of things "ED MOORE" CONTINUED ON PAGE 4 HISTORY IN THE WRITING Rocky Swift As the reputation of New College continues to grow, it becomes increasingly important to remember its humble origin. That is the subject of an upcoming book, which details the founding and history of our school. The idea for a history of New College began in the mid eighties when former provost Bob Benedetti fonned a committee to look into getting funds for the research and writing. This committee was chaired by Dallas Dort, who was one of the first trustees of New College and is still part of the New College Foundation. The committee chose Glenda Cimino, a member of the charter graduating class, to author the book. Cimino worked on the text for a year before having to bow out The project was then taken over by former Director of Public Affairs Funnan "Brud" Arthur. Prior to his work at New College, Arthur had "NEW COLLEGE" CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

Mo t of the information in th book come form the New College archives in the library, but many mem hers of the faculty and board contributed as well. The book is a narrative overview of the history of our school from the beginning to the present. Special auention is given to the factors and events that led to the founding of New College. The aspirations of the founders created a perpetual lack of funds that led to the merger with USF. ew College i more secure now than it ha ever been, and many people will be urpri ed at how fragtle its been for most of its life. The book has taken abut three year to produce, and we may have to wait another year before it is available to the public. While the book is all but finished, the powers that be have not yet decided whether to have the book publi hed locally or with an out of state company. When it i published, the ew College hi tory will help to give our school an identity. Corrections: --Mark Johnson does not make appointments to unfilled po .ilions in student elections as was reported last week 10 our elections article. This i done by the CSA president. --Dean Schenck's name was misspelled in the bike hop article. In the same article, the bike shop' new home will require $8,00010,000 not $800-$1000 as tatcd in the last is uc. We apologize for the errors.

4 The Catalyst September 28, 1994 "ED MOORE" CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 (purchase orders, timesheets, requisitions, an occasional pay check), and I get to be in certain places at certain times, but that's about the extent of the things I can do that most of you can't. I hope y'all will be comfortable coming to me with problems you need to deal with, projects you want to start or finish or figure out. or just bullshitting about this place and the world and whatever. If I'm not around, feel free to give me a call. My number at home is FLY-BETS (359-2387) and at school it's 359/*-4267 and we should get voice mail soon, so you can leave me a message. My box is 099, and I live in apt. 888 (the number of the snowman beast) in Sunridge, which is pretty close to campus, if you want to come by. The last thing I'm going to bring up are the projects I'm trying to finish and some I'd like to work on these last couple of months. If you have any suggestions, please let me know and we can figure out what's manageable or worthwhile or whatever: 1) The Bike Shop Location: Hopefully this will be resolved by the end of the week. We just need to fill Judy in on what we've decided and get her input. 2) Sexual Harassment/Violence Policy: A group of students, faculty and our former Director of Student Affairs spent most of last semester trying to hammer out a policy. We got a fair amount done, but we still need to finish it and bring it before the appropriate bodies to approve it or let us know which aspects need more work. 3) Barbara Berggren's Salary: Barbara Berggren has been the Student Government Comptroller for the whole campus for over six years now. Besides keeping track of all the ac counts, she does a major chunk of the work that goes into managing Ham Center, the Fitness Center, and the Mac Labs. Without getting too technical here, we are able to pay her as a temporary employee which allows us to retain control over her position rather than having to cede that control over to adminis trators. Unfortunately this introduces some inequities into the picture. First of all, Barbara's employment security is not guaranteed by much more than the good will of the two student alliances. Obviously this hasn't been a problem for us or Barbara. The other inequity is that she can't receive benefits. In order to rectify this, my two predecessors, and now myself, have included substantial raises in the last three budgets we've submitted for Dean Schenck's approval. All three requests have been denied. At any rate, we're going to deal with this once and for all this year, and I may need the help and support of students in one form or another to get this done. 4) Setting up the Academic Affairs Council: The AAC is made up of all the student reps on faculty and administrative committees. It's supposed to help coordinate the actions and decisions of student reps on their committees and at the Faculty Meetings. There hasn't been an AAC since I've been here, and in light of the fact that there really isn't a kind of student gov't "culture" at the moment, it seems like we should resort to this albeit formal mean of getting together and hanging out. I'll be calling the first meeting soon, so watch out. 5) Setting up a Student Disciplinary Procedure: Right now we have two disciplinary alternatives: student court and emergency procedures. Two poles, both in their make-up and with regards to what problems they handle. It seems to me that we need to have something in the middle to pick up the slack on both ends and to remove some of the need for administrators to decide "serious" disciplinary matters by fiat. I'm going to approach the Student Life Committee about coming up with a procedure to include people from the student body, the faculty, and the administration. 6) Filling Empty Student Government Positions: I'll be posting signs up around campus letting y'all know what positions are up for grabs. The basic procedure is letting me know you're interested, finding a time to talk about the position and your interest in it, and then my making the decision. These decisions are then subject to the approval or disapproval of the SAC and the AAC, depending upon the nature of the position. 7) Figuring out what to do with the health fee: Anne Fisher has proposed a one dollar per credit hour increase in our health fee. This represents an overall annual increase of thirty six dollars, which to me is pretty reasonable, but I shouldn't be around next year, so I really shouldn't decide. Anyway, we need to assess our health care needs on campus and figure out, along with our friends in the UPSA, what action if any is merited. This decision needs to be made soon to get it on the Board of Regents agenda in January. 8) Setting up a better line of communication between us and the Campus Police: Mark Johnson and myself have met with Captain Kelly and we should be setting up an open meeting between the students and some of the police fairly soon. If you're having specific problems with the cops or a cop, let me know, there are people we can talk to and actions we can take to make sure the police are doing what's appropriate and if they're not, to make sure inappropriate actions don't go unchecked or unpunished. I'm sure there are things I've left out, but hopefully this gives y'all a general idea of what issues are important to me. If there's anything you need to talk about with regards to these or something else you'd like to work on, let me know.

The Catalyst September 28, 1994 5 "MINIVER COUGHED, AND CALLED IT FATE, AND KEPT ON DRINKING." Graham Strouse Last Tuesday afternoon, I was lounging about my spacious second court double balcony when I came to a very sobering conclusion about substance abuse at New College. Unfortunately I was drunk at the time. I had also gotten drunk Monday night. And Sunday night. I found that I had reached one of those points in my life when I began to equate drunkenness with emotional comfort. Basically, I bottled Mom and choked her down with a chaser until my throat numbed and I could take it straight. This is, needless to say, a bad thing. So why am I writing about this now? Wednesday night I was sitting on the Wall out by flfst court when a friend of mine sat down beside me. She was drunk and stoned. My friend was terribly amused by the procrastinat ing congregation out by the wall, a congregation that included a certain lanky Jeff Goldbloom look-alike who was running around in his underwear and overcoat. He was spanking people. We sang Paula Abdul songs. Why my friend found this amusing is understandable. Unfortunately, these goofy, groking lunatics also made her feel paranoid; paranoid enough that she didn't want me to leave her alone and surrounded by the funkiness. The next evening I was again minding my own busi ness, this time in my room, when another friend walked in dosed all the way to happy-happy land. She dropped at nine. A decent trip lasts twelve hours. She had three classes the next day. You want to know the worst part of this story? I just sort of shrugged my shoulders. I was, to borrow a phrase, dumb and numb to the whole affair. After three-plus years at New College, I have seen my share of the minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked by the hot tub, dragging themselves across the Palm Court tiles at dawn looking for an angry fix. Some got kicked out after reducing their minds to a pot mush good only for smoking. Some wised up and restrained their revels. At least one died. Do not misunderstand me. I still maintain that hemp, in reasonable doses, can be a happy little weed. Studies indicate that alcohol in moderate doses reduces the likelihood of heart disease. I've even heard that acid improves night vision. Just don't over do it. Fire may be good for cooking but it's no fun as a facial cleanser. You can't dance in it unless you're a Hindi mystic. It's too damn hot to wash with, yet we persist in fire-bathing. Wanting to get a little zonked after a hard week of Kant and calculus is certainly understandable. Getting drunk, high and and/or dosed in the middle of the week on a regular basis is just plain stupid. The fact that this occurs so often at New College that even us sensitive poetic types are rendered insensate is just plain scary. Admittedly this wa a conclusion that I first came to while riding on vodka, Vicks 440 (for a cold), and ephedrine. Call me a hypocrite auteur if you like. Nevertheless this weekly drinker proposes that we think once, twice, and three times before getting screwed up on a school night. We should also keep closer tabs on our friends. Watch ing one's best buddy transform into a booze hound under a full moon should make one think twice. If somebody is getting screwed up too much, teal their liquor/beer/pot/acid and save it for a rainy weekend Say three Hail Mary's for sobriety and put them to bed. I'll drink to that.

6 The Catalyst September 28, 1994 CAMPUS CRIME STATISTICS NEW MAILBOXES ENTER SCENE James Reifel/ Liz Patterson Have you ever wondered what the Campus Police do around here other than give parking tickets? This chart shows activity in recent months-<:rimes reported, noise complaints, and various forms of assistance. Not listed are person reports (many, many rowdy Townies at walls and other su pi cious types are escorted off campus), general assistance to the community (New College and otherwise), or parking and traffic violations. Also keep in mind that these figures are not the final official statistics for the year, as the police go over their records, For quite some time now, Student Affairs and Housing have recommended that new mailboxes be purchased. After these requests were processed somewhere in the region of Alpha Centauri, requiring years of transit at the speed of light, the Capital Improvement Trust Fund (CIT) approved the required funds. The project was then trotted over to Rick Lytle, who is responsible for upholding the continuing beauty of the New College campus. He made the selection of the 798 steely grey boxes currently residing behind the old ones in that little room off some of the details may change. ll24-6J94 Murder 0 Rape/Sexual Assault 1 Robbery 0 Aggravated Assault 0 Burglary 1 Theft Auto 0 Assault 1 Battery 2 Disorderly Conduct 2 Theft Grand 5 Theft Petty 11 Mail Fraud 0 Criminal Mischief 7 Explosive Device 0 Fireworks 0 Noise Complaint-Internal 3 Noise Complaint-External 8 Arson 0 Drugs 1 Alcohol 3 Alcohol ID Checks 20 Indecent Exposure 0 Criminal Trespass 2 Fire Alarms 37 Obscene Calls 2 Suicide 0 Baker/Meyers Act 0 Fire 3 Medical Assistance 12 Security Escorts 518 Animal Control 12 Motorist Assistance 96 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 I 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 Constant 0 0 0 0 0 64 1 4 to the ide of the Cafe Marriot. Tom Levitan and Mark Johnson had made one basic rcque t: that the new boxes lock. Johnson made this request 0 because "people have been ripped off. Money, tapes, checks, 0 credit cards ... Four years ago a student was identified by the 0 Federal Mail Service as responsible for the theft and use of other 0 student's credit cards from their boxes. He withdrew before he 0 was apprehended by the authorities. The only thing that could be 0 done about s uch thefts, prior to the advent of the new boxes, was 0 to hold mail in the Student Affairs office. This was a hassle for 0 everyone involved.

The Roswell Incident, as it wa called, became legendary among UFO fans and cover-up theorists a one of the most thoroughly inve Ligated and authenticated case of UFO contact ever. Radical thcori ts claimed that the Air Force quickly covered up evidence of an extraterrestrial craft (including alien bodies and other-worldly technology) in a major con piracy. The government, they charge, studied the secrets of the crafl' construction and made death threats to keep knowledgeable people quiet. The Air Force's report tells a different story. According to them the wreckage was part of a top-secret program called Operation Mogul. The program's mission? To search high in the atmo phere for weak reverberation from nuclear te, t blasts in the former Sov1et nion. 50 years ago the Air Force said the debri was merely part of a weather balloon. Apparently that statement was not entirely true; the ba1loon was actually equipped with en tuve radar detectors made of thin metal foil that may have added to a UFOlike appearance. In any case, not everyone i convinced by the recent report. "It'. a bunch of pap," said Walter G. Haul pre ident of the International UFO Museum and Research Center.
