THE NEW COLLEGE I I RGAN Pt.BUSHED BY STt.Ja!NTS OF NEW COl.LEGE FOR THE BE.NEFri' a 1HE NEW COI.U.CE this infernal achine rides again 1 -'1-..., C. Politics We regret the loss caused by the untimely death of the "Blue Goose" -The staff of the N.C. Organ doug stinson As we start the second term of this year, we continue our saga of faculty meetings. Announcements were dispensed with in record time, although this was no indication of further excitement. In spite of some lively issues, the meeting was calmer than some. KINGS AND COMMJNERS The dabate on the Student Proposal (you know, that thing we voted on some number of millenia ago)should have been exciting; instead,, the group just went through the motions and only succeeded in wasting a great deal of time before COming to a pre-determined conclusion. Some of the main objectives were brought out immediately. First, it was pointed out that if anything, decision-making at New College was too slow and should be streamlined. A cumbersome arrangement such as was being proposed would merely clog up the already sticky machinery. Second, it was stated that there is student representation on most committees and that this is the place for students to raise their voices against proposals they don't support. It was felt that the arrangement puts the students and faculty in an unwholesome "adversary relationship." David Pini pointed out that just because a student sits in on a meeting doesn't mean that the student body has a say in faculty decisions. This was countered by a statement that this was a student problem, and that the students should see that their representatives represent Fred Silverman pointed out that it seemed that the students and the faculty were adversaries. I ( / Dr. Gorfein stated that if you wanted to maintain the status quo you should vote for the motion. Dr. Deme added that the proposal was merely a veto power, the traditional way that monarchs maintained the status quo over the wishes of the elected assemblies (somehow, the relevance of the details of that allusion escape me.) Fred Silverman brought out the allusion that at New College, "Everyone is a king, but nobody wears the crown." Smiles all around. He went on to clarify that this didn't apply to all faculty actions, but only to actions to be in effect for more than one term, and that in fact, the action would become policy unless enough students got together a petition to have a referendum, and if the faculty motion was voted down. It seemed that at most this arrangement would merely cause a delay, and that the faculty were much better at that than the One person wondered what happened to the student initiative part of it all. 1) Budget cuts were prefer to additional students. 2) The budget should be cut by .priorities. 3) Budget cuts should be made in a spirit of mutual sacrifice. They went on to suggest that the cuts be split 37%-63% between academic and non-academic areas. When asked, the committee explained the increases of last years budget. The largest increases were in the Humanities, for supplies, in the Presidential budget(&wing to unfilled positions) and Natural Sciences, for'equipment. The $316,000 figure was arrived at by adding all known income plus $750,000 in fundraising, and subtracting that from the budget. A large amount of discussion went on as to whether the suggested cuts (travel, honoraria, journals, etc.) would hamstring divisional budget deliberations. With this section being amended to read that the budget committee would suggest areas to be cut. Douglas Berggren asked if a _return to a modified Core program (a la De-Mott) and restricting the number of courses a student may take might make additional students a more attractive solution. Norton replied that maybe so, but without those plans, which When it came to a vote, the five student representatives present voted in favor, most faculty voted against, and a sizable number abstained. haven't been made yet, we would After the SASC report it was announced that have even more overcrowded Mr. Lyons was named Director of the Summer seminars.

After much confusion over CHICKEN LITTLE IS RIGHT what had been voted on, the Next, the ad hoc Budget Committee reported, through Bryon Norton, that the trustees had given them a mandate of either cutting the budget by $316,000 or adding 100 students. The committee took the following stand. Deport was passed, setting no policies, but m erely giving the Budget Committee general priorities to improve the bargaining position with the trustees.

That and a Tew other songs, Long Road Marvelom aiid Too Late for the Learning were recorded by"hliii ailcT others and are likely sot.n"Ces of information for all but the few few who have followed his development up to the present. How is his latest album (on Reprisea switch from Elektra). You can here everything from Cello to mouth harp to David Horowit:.! ( keyboard and lately, arranger) on it. Musically this is a much more exciting album than any precedmg it, though it contains no Strawberry Fields You could play almost everything on his first three albums with only 3 chords in the good ol' folk style. No more. The strenght in.hls early albums was in their mixture of simplicity and humor and the occasional song such as Lesson that evoked, with quite cOiiiiiiOil images, deeply hwnan feelings of love lost, and lived. His powerful song cf. a draftee learning to kill is childishly simple in word and melody. How Come the Sun demonstrates he hiS not forgotten:1low to use sim plicity and hwnor but it demands much more of the listener.
