page two page two Radical Invitation Dear Zorn, We would like to make contact with individuals who might be interested in establishing a radical studies center in the New College/Sarasota area. We have three broad purposes in mind: (l) To bring together people intereted in radical social change. (2) To serve as an information outlet attemptong to distribute a variety of radical publications throughout this part of the state. (3) To work within the ew College academic set-up to further the development of rad_ical theory concerning the hi story, culture, social structure, and p<> litical economy of the United States and its relationship to therest of the world. Hopefully, this might involve the en couragement of tutorials, ISP's and contractual programs which are related to this goal, and the assisting of those persons engaged in such activity. (4) To encourage communication between interested people andencourage co operative study of socio-political andtheir solutions. We extend this invitation to all students, faculty members and area resireJts who might care to JOin. Those interested can drop a note in box 210 or contact any of the following people: Tom Groenfeldt Rm. 243 Ira Halberstadt Rm. 127 Paul Jaffe Rm. 129 Daryle Laatsch Rm. 139 T A X WAR Dear Zorn, In typical New C o 11 e g e sty 1 e of commitment, last week's article, "Taxed? 11 shows the stance of a rich liberal who will protest (?) as long as there is no risk to his own s-ecurity. Besidesthe complete lack of true commitment, the action described in "Taxed?" simplywill not work. The.government is a mach:De, not a person, 1t can not be changed by pleas to the humanity of it; it has no hu JDanity. Also, it is futile to attempt to assault the government using its own we a pon: the bureaucratic system, for the gov ernment is the master of such systems and it can change them anytime onepart becomes troublesome. In ment needs two thingS! people to fight, and people to pay for it. Merely protesting these practices fails to back up the words with deeds. The question is, wi II we, on demand, become that soldier or surrender that tax dollar? What of the youth who joins in the marches all the time carrying a selective service membership card?Orwh:t of the wman who attends protracted anti-war demonstrations yet hurries home, so as to file her income tax on time?And those who speak with encouragement to yo\.UJ.g men who are facing prison by resisting the draft, but who will pay for the war which these men are spending five years of their lives to deny. Whether a person agrees or disagrees with war policies or war activities is of little concern to the war-making state, if he allows his life and/ or money to be conscripted. Thus, I am talking about tax refusa. If someone says that this is not possible, it must be answered that it is possible. Many people are now refusing all t a xowed(?) leggally to the government. But besides the difficulty of reach ing such a strong stance as to resist the government, the physical refusing of federal taxes is also quite involved, due to the fact that through witholding the government already has your moneyand will ref\.UJ.d to you only what they do not need for their war. There are ways of voiding witholding and other methods of avoiding later collection of tax by through their putting liens against yo u These can be avoided. Telephone tax is also a war tax. The actual refusal here is much easier; a 11 you need do is pay part of the bill, enclosing a note stating why the tax has h!er refused. Though I am no expert, if you are in terested in the ways of tax refusal, I am more than happy to talk witJvou about it anytime; see Tim in E-ll4.

His vitae is on the bulletin board in the library. i I hope that all students interested in French and/or study in French will make an effort to meet him. His JOr field appears to be Woman andEd ucation in French Literature of the 17th Century. Sioux Von Baeyer NOTE: Today, another candidate in the Humanities Division is here for art 1istory, Mr. J:ienry B.-Grihain, who spoke .:>n The Mun1ch Psalter: Narrative Art in the f:arly 13th Century yesterday. Today he. w1ll meet with the F acuity StatusCom m1ttee from 4-4: 30 in South Hall. There will be an open hearing at the Student Court meeting of Wednesday, the 17th, concerning the possible liftitg of the ban against Jack Lindsey. Lindsey was banned from campus last term at the request of the students. He has requested that this ban be lifted Students will be heard for and against the granting of this request. REPLY Dear Tim, I do not believe my article of last week's issue "Taxed" shows "in a typical New College style of" "complete lack of true commitment", "the stance of a rich liberal who will protest(?) as long as there is no risk to his own secu rity. I feel it is useful to attempt to influence the government to change undesirable policies on as many fronts as possible. There are in f ac;t p e o p l e involved in the "machine" of the govemment. I won't present you with statements concerning my personal level of commitment, but there is much to be said for would-be revolutionaries keeping active in working for change rat he r than being "on ice" in jail; thus, perhaps, the em!Dasis in the "Taxed" action. Also, everyone has to start so m e -where on their own road to resistance and h'beration. Tax resistance andrefusal are part of an American tradition that might be more respected by many Americans than some other methods em ployed by the "movement". It is thus a useful 'organizing' approach. My article described only one single possibility of tax resistance. I do know of the other methods you mentioned. I was (and am) planning to follow the original article with a further piece describing other methods as soon as some information I had sent for arrived. The point of the first article was to get peop le thinking right now the possibility of them not paying war taxes. I suggest that before attacking anyone as "a rich liberal" or else you should consider well the l;ct of such attacks in alienating (rather than convincing) your "opponent". Unnecessary polarizations and divisions are maybe worse than any errors connected with the issues which lead to them. David Adams cleft notes LIBERATION OR REVOLUTION Dear Women's Lib Organizers, We're female: supposedly intuitive, instinctual, able to cry, concerned with love, babies, and homes--alien to smokefilled committee rooms full of men talking money and wars I've always liked to think that women have b a ked bread and not run for congress or immersed themselves in the business world because they don't want to. Women are quiet when their men are discussing cars ani presidents not really because they're afraid to say anything or because they're culturally conditioned, but because they know the difference between real things and shit. I don't think its women who are brainwashed about their position in society, but men sure are. I remember my mo ther telling me once about male e go s how fragile men are, how fragile their a::complishments" are. Women, whose accomplishments are keeping a family alive, have a much stronger base in pride, in reality, in life. So far, we have largely chosen to let the men play in the i r shit, but now it's gotten, as every on e can see, dangerously out of hand, and women are deciding to step in and try t o help liberate the men and the crazy culture that they built. 13Jlli. how do women do it? Committees, coalitions, manifestos, cigarettes, army jackets ... It seems like that's what women's lib is here, too. Are men's games and forming committees e way to make a revolution? Or isn1t a revolution what liberation is all about. Love, Robin Vise! WNCR 355-7400 NOTE The bookstore for sometime had in stock hardcover copies of the bestseller The Sensuous Woman by J. Some ten days ago, the bookstore received several copies of the Sensuous Male byM The hardcover copies of Woman st iII are sitting on the shelf, w"''iiiet!ie copies of Male have been gone for some time already. An interesting comment on the politics of liberation. CHAUVINISM Dear Zorn, During t he p as t w e e k, t h ere has been some accusations of theBread Board being unsympathetic to Womeds demands. This, if not true, is at least unproven. The Bread Board does not originate requests for funds, but only makes recommendations on them. Thus the existence of pool and po ker tables cannot be used as argmlt'nts to support this claim. Presently there are two women on the board (out of 5 members), and I do not consider myself a male chauvinist, although admittedly this is only a persona zsertion. I believe that it is important to r& alize that the Van Dyken motion for 40 per cent of the Bread Board funds was essentially a political move, and a very good one, designed to pressure approval f o r any I ate r reque s t s by women's organizations, primari I y the Women's Liberation Organization for money. Khai Dolinh by Dan Raif The Asolo Opera season ended with The Barber of Seville. It was done by and large very vigorously, which most of the name of the game in light opera. Like all Rossini that I've heard, voive parts in it were very ornamented: full of flashy opport\.UJ.ities to show off vocal agility. Only some of the cast was up to it, but the superficial nature of the music and plot--the foreign but yo\.UJ.g and virtuous Co\.UJ.t trying to marry the ward of the jealous old fogey before he contrives to do it himself--didn't seem to call for bravura as much as spirit. It was, like all the others a flawed but by no means grating performance; rather a diverting and differently dimensioned way of having music than either records or the concert hall. Concerts upcoming: Paul Wolfe's Florida West Coast Symphony (Purple Cow Saturday night; Chuck Derrick has tickets) with Charles Treger, violin soloist. Trege r is thought highly of by: a) Rick Rognstadt(Bldg. E) who heard him frequently last summer and b) Paul Hume, extremely discriminating and critical reviewer for the Washington Post. Mr. Treger so\.UJ.ds very exciting. The program will include the violin concert of Mendelssohn (portions of orchestral music, port1ons ot orchestra accompanying thematic soloist, portions of violin cadenza.) Also will be heard the Second Sym phony of the American Charles lves, one of the outstanding creative artists of the age. He studied music in college, graduated, and could have made a living selling music on commission. Imagination leading him to constructs far too radical to sell, he preferred n o compromise--he sold insurance in the daytime, composing and r=ing a church choir at night. Off in rural Connecticut in JJHl, this man defined the ideas that the Paris Avant Guard of the 1920's based their fame on. The Second Symphony is more interested in an evocation of Life in New England that the nature of the tonal \.UJ.iverse, that's not to say that it's not pretty interesting music. On Tuesday night, there will be a program of Bach organ music and early choral music at Church of the Redeemer, 222 S Palm Ave, given by Rev. Jerome Meachen and a small choir. The organ's pretty large and the music? Bach's is nowhere m o r e telling emotionally and driving spiritually thall in a reverberent church, and voice music from before him (which is what will be S\.UJ.g) tends to a really remarkable inflection. Without any sense of mass, the music is full of waves. It's really f\.UJ. to sing and, I should think, to hear. The program is posted in Hamilton Center. page two page two Saver Resigns TO THE COI.U:GE COM:MUNITY FROM: Dennis Saver RE: An End to Do-Gooding I resign. I resign from the faculty. From the faculty that ignores and will NOT speak to any student proposal of import ;t h at is happy to grant students token represent but has no intention Of ever alhw mg them any actual decision-making power. From the faculty which trusts its colleagues more than its studnets but doesn't even trust its members to' teach by themselves (let alone anything else) without close supervision and pressures to conform to the "tyranny of the majority. 11 I resign from the SEC From an SEC which somehow seems able to do nothing but pass =ecessary (at best) or ridiculous (at worst) motions, and then pass another motion eviscerating the first. From an SEC which has so 1 itt le concern with self-govemance and promoting growth situations, but so m uch concern with dogshit and self-parody. From an SEC packed with members of an "Action Coalition 11 who have don e nothingbut impede progress, raise igro rant objections, and destructively(rat her than constructively) criticize. I resign from the College Council. A council which nevermeets except with an expediency that verges on secrecy. A council which is the only tripartite on campus and thus (in my opinIon) the only body which can "justly" decide many matters of education pol icy and like issues, but instead seems to deal only with trivialities of food service and billing disputes. I resign from the Provost committees both the def\.UJ.ct "Defining" and the newly renamed "Search" committees A .committee which by dint of mlSe and not stepping on any toes produced a vague and nearly meaningless document wiht little practical use. and now is supposed to look for someone foolish enough to accept an emasculated and nearly \.UJ.workable ombudsman position with lots of grief but no autho-rity. I resign from the constitutional Weekend. From a weekend which will \.UJ. doubtedly be fraught with meeting: From a wee en try g to into an outdated document; a constitution most warmly deserved by all of those who don't give a shit about it anyway. From a weekend which, in that it has town meetings ensures the of anything discussed. I resing from what's left of coordinating Colloquium 171; mostly just the coffee and doughnuts after each meeting. Coffee and doughnuts that would be totally consumed before the people they are me3lJA. for have a chance to see them, by rude students stuffing their faces and carting off what they can carry whenever they have the opportmlity. Coffee and dough nuts that these few shining examples lust >for so much that the door h'as t:o be locked and even that doe s not deter them. I resign from any attempts, legal or "\.UJ.-4ergro\.UJ.d11 for educational reform at New College. Reform such that itis hard even for the people organizing it to talk without arguing, such that consensus becomes defined in terms of pet personal theories.; all still too good for most of the people who don't give a big enough shit to get off their asses and stop sitting in it. Reform that would have almost no hope of getting through a faculty so set in building 31?dealing with only the very limited aspects of the "whole student" and dealing with them only in familiar ways. "Innovation" has gone the way of "First class minds" ("First class minds tend to come and go .M>stly go." --John Barcroft in orientation address, Sept. "70) I am resigned. I woul.d quit trying to oversee campus jobbing if it weren't abso necessary for me to work in order to pay tuition. But inregard to else, I am through with it. I have finally been inhibited by negative feedback. I have seen very little to convince me that it really matteredwhether I did any of this or not. As Tom Lehrer said, "Life is like a sewer: you get out of it what you put into it." I've had quite enough of it, so I'm returning to being a studnet. Pay ing$4200 a year, I'd like to get a little more out of it than excrement. h's obvious that it is impossible to be both a student and wage a many-fronted war. I :suppose that I'm pretty bitter about the Everybodies, and have been \.UJ.fair and biased in my comments ... So it goes. No longer will I deal with the masses-(Ihe Students, Faculty), but only w1illfriends, In v1duals, Someone else can play the Patsy. Enjoy yourselves.

page three page three page three Most of the action at the SEC meet ing of Feb. 10 was financial. A new Bread Board policy to grant money to students representing the school or a significant number of students to enable them to attend special events and conferences (gasp! ) was institutea. Seventy five dollars was granted to the Women's Committee foe a sewing machine to be available to all students, and $25 to Don Goldberg for a 3-d a y Non-Violent Workshop. A discretionary fund of $50 was aside for the SEC chairman to use m emergency or on-the-spot-decisions. A motion to seek out candidates for a f u 11 year position as well asfor part time positions and workshops :was passed and $10, 000 was alloted for salaries. Derrick recommended that a letter be written to th4e Provost requesting a resident faculty be reserved for the Student Chan prof. Students are encouraged to draw up their own amendments to and draft versions of a constitution. e faculty is encouraged to participate in the conventiom. And last, the following resolution was passed: "Although we do not necessanly rt the views of the Young Soclahst we support their to be a recognised campus organozatiOn on the universities of Florida, and endorse the wori< of the committee to that end. 1 "We furthur feel that insbtutiOna re-cognition of organizations is a repressive unconstitutionalsystem, and we that the Boerd of Regents abo lish this system."

A s always the Daytona Beach R esort Area will be ready to welcome its visitors with the bil?&est and best beach in Florida, plu plenty of entertainment to while aw a y the vacation hours. The resort area's beach is 23 miles long and 500 feet wide at low t i d e, meaning plenty of room to swim, play ball, surf, picnic, dance and You can drive on 18 miles of the beach following the action where it moves. Applications have been pouring in from agencies and organizations wanting to put their entertainment on display at the oceanfront Bandshell, Pea body Auditorium and in roving ban d s along the beach. City officials are still struggling with the problem of selecting the best quality entertainment, but they've already approved a three hour rock and soul music concert, an ali-day fish fry, a mod fashion and rock show and several groups of roving musicians And of course, the Campus Crusade for Christ will be on hand wlth its popular musical shows and skull sessions Most events will be scheduled for the two weeks leading up toE aster Stmday, Aprilll. That day is tentatively set this year for the annual Easter Beach Run in which vislting athletes compete for handsome trophies awarded by the City of Daytona Beach. The city is also planning to set up 10 volleyball courts at various spots on the beach to provide plenty o f playing opportunity for everyone. Sur fers will find specially marked areas where you can enjoy that sport with -our interference from bathers or fishermen. Spending the Spring break in the Daytona Beach Resort Area doesn 1 t mean you have to spend a lot of money to have f1m. Motel rates start as low as $5 per night for each person (usually in groups of two or more) and go up as far as any budget w i 11 allow. Some motels do insist on a "da mage deposit" for each room; if every ,thing is intact when you check out, the deposit is returned. There are 175 restaurants in the Reso Area and they cover everything from dining to hot dog stands, with plenty of in-between, inexpensive places to suit all tastes. Also, many student s like the idea of renting an efficienty apartment and c ooking their own meals during their-stay. In case "Too much s1.m too soon" gets t o be a problem, take some time away from the beach to se e the sights you. Tour the famous Daytona International Speedway and the M useum of Speed. Drive down to Cape Kenedy (j an hour away) and see where the m o on shot s are launched. Or go up to Marine land, just 45 minutes, and play with the friendly porpoises One of the wildest new scenes is Marc Polo Park just off I-95 at the northern entrance to the Resort Area. Its first phase, "The Orient", is open and offers Oriental food, gifts, gardens, sampan rides and the general feeling of being in a Japanese fishing village as Marco Polo might have se e n it. Meanwhile, back on the beach, the oil and beverage companies will be sponsoring shows again and passing out their samples, just like always. The with love ST.

A poll was taken of the residnets of B, C, and D in order to see f. they wanted the dome to be located in their dorm area or elsewhere. There are less than 120 people living in those dorms, At the time of the poll, only 70 people were in their rooms. Of those 70, only 8 were willing to have the dome built near their dorms. 62 people (a maJOrity of the residrets) did not want the dome constructed near their buildings, for a variety of reasons. First of all, there is the noise. The purpose of buililing the dome is to use it for multimedia shows and parties, bdh of which can be extremely noisy. The people in the three dorms, especially those whose windows would front on the dome, do not want the noise. They want to be able to study or sleep without having to ask the people in the dome tobe quiet. As a solution to this problem, it has been suggested that use of the dome be restricted to Friday and Saturday nig hts, between 6 and 10 p.m. We do not feel that the SEC granted $150 so the dome could be in such limited use, and we would prefer to have the dome loca ted away from the living areas so i:hat it could be used all the time. Second 1 y, there is the aesthetic quality. We like the quietness and be ty of the area between our three dorms. It is the only spot in the vicinity which is quiet, comfortable, and u n s poi 1 ed by eithter man-made obJects or dogshit. We want to reserve this area for sunbathing and sitting outside. We want to preserve the beautiful, natural ve w that we have from our windows. The dome committee has given 5 factors which make the chosen spot the most desirable on campus, One of the factors is the wind protection offered by the dorms. The assumption that the dorms will provide adequate wind protection is based on the fact that the prevailing wind comes from off the bay. However, the wind blows from all direcr tions, and the buildings afford little pro tection as seen fromthe large numberof branches that have blown off the trees in the last couple of days. A second factor why this areas is so desirable is the availability of electrical outlets. How ever, there are many other buildings on campus which could provide electricit); buildings which are not in use at A third is the accessibility of the area. However, the dome could be placed in an accessible spot near by which would be away from the living area. The dane committee has said their 5 reasons make the spot the most desirable one on cann pus, but if one adds the sixth factor of people, then it becomes the most undesirable one. Putting the dome in between three dorms is comparable to putting it in the center of the PalmCourt. It would disturb the same number of peole.. We are not against the dome; we think that it is a fine idea--but there are betterplaces for it: east of the Bam, east ofRobertsm Hall, east of South Hall, and south ci Third Court. We have offered suggestions, we have offered to help. Since the dome money was granted by the SEC in the interests of all the students, the dome commhee should be flexible enough to bow to the wishes of those students who will bema;t affected by the dome's location. CATHEDRAL by Tim Snyder A group of interested students re ;eived funds ($150) from'the student ac:ivities fund through the SEC for constructing a multi-purpose, student-owned, geodesic dome. When some of the residents of C building realized that they b.:rd not known about the prime prospective location (adjacent to C building), they asked the dome designers to hold anotrer meeting with the residents of B, C, and D to examine alternative locations. Be ing more concerned about their brothers' and sisters' state of mnd than about the expedient construction of the dome, the designers agreed to consider other possible sites for the dome. In an open hearing on Tuesday everung February 9 in the cafeteria, several locations were discussed. Among those w c r e east of South Hall, east of Robertson Hall, east of the bam, between B and D east of C between E and C, behind the ban-acks, out side the president's dining room, and between second and third court. In examing any of the locations several factors must be considered: proximity to buildings for wind protection, electricity, and safety from vandals; distance from trees to falling branches; proximity to students;. possible irritating noise level; aesthetic compa tibility; importance to social development of its environment; and melancholy gener ated by exposure to an entity of such tensegral excellence. The merits of the prime prospective location--just east of C twixt B and D--lead the dome designers to consider it the ideal 'location for the dome. The dome is near to B, C, and D for wind protection, electricity, and safety from vandals. It would provide a possible focus for social interaction on the west campus. The noise level would be controlled by standard quiet hours rules and there would be ample room left for sunbathing and tree gazing. Most important in the controversy is how people deal with their conflicts of interest, not where the dome is located. Arbitrary action by one group of people which infringes on the peace of mind or pursuit of happiness of any other person is one of the injustices that we the children of the new world must avoid. Half an injustice apeicc is no solution! GETS G RANT American non-interventionism will be the subject of summer research by a New College professor who has received a continuation of a grant for the purpose. A repeat of research assistance, this time for an increased amount, has been awai-Jed Dr. Justus Doenecke; history prof essor by the Institute of Hum an e Studies Menlo Park; Calif., an orgamzation dedicated to the educational_ purpose o f. broadening the understandmg and pract1ce of the principle of ll"berty. Dr. Doenecke plans publishing a book, titled "American Non -Interventionism and the Cold War, 1939 to the Preselit," as the result of his research. Last summer, the historian interviewed numerous persons and studied the historical papers of those who formed the leaders hit: of the principal isolationist movements: The America First Committee, a conservative group formed in the fall of 194{) and disbanded at Pearl Harbor; and the Keep Amer ica Out of War Congress, a more liberal organization famded in 1938. Among their supporters, Dr. Doenecke has found such public figures as the 1 at e President John F. Kennedy, who once do nated $100 to the America First Committee, as well as such diverse individuals as Yale President Kingman Brewster, Sargent Shri ver, U.S. Supreme Court Judge Potter Stewart, Congressman Eerald Ford, archi.. tect Frank lloyd Wright and birth control -r -1'). //. / leader Mrs. Margaret Sanger. /tViP' ride-# rTPfh' This summer, he hopes to study the pa-pers of the late Senator Robert Taft at the RECORD SHOP library of Congress as well as collections of papers o f pacifists in the Swarthmore HEAD ACCESSORIES College peace collection, the Hervert Hoo 1774 MAI N ST. 9584511 ver Presidential Library in Iowa and at the University of Wyoming. member, F D I C and Federal Reserve System TRAIL NATIONAL BANK WE'LL STRETCH A POINT TO SERVE YOU BLACKNESS C ONTINUED "Upon entering the political arena, how you move de fines you politically". Huey Newton Black folk have been in the political arena since we first set foot on these shores. The problem has beenthat the terms of participation have and are being either dictated to us by whites, or, because of the oppressive nature of American society we could only have little to say about defining out role. Black men and women in Jails have had nothing to do with their sentances, picking JUries, or even being allowed to act in their own defence. A good example of this is Bobby Seale, He was bound and gagged in a court of law. His constitutional rights were most blatentlv isznored and he was assaulted quite openly with the public watching. There was no attempt made by the Justice Department to insure that the rights of Bob by Sc ale or any B 1 a c k revolutionary would be protected, not in this country. Because you see that Arne rica is a farce, a trick, a game that is being run down on people. They say that you are innocent until proven guilty, and then they set your bail at $100, 000. I've been told that this is to insure that you show up in court, but where in the world would poor people get $100, 000? .And we are supposd to be protected from excessive bail. One of the problems with our legal system is that. to get justice you have to have money. To get to the Sup reme Court takes money, either personal l money or someone else's money. And Black people just don't have that kind of bread. There are many Blacks in Jail today who were tried by racists white judges and juries. We speak of liberty and foe all, but in fact, we libe_rty and JUstice for those with money. A rich white woman can get arrested for shoplifting, go to court, be declared a cleptomaniac, undergo some bullshit treatments and be released. Can the same be said of a Black woman? Theoretically yes, categorically and more realistically Hell no! The incidence of Black men and women being convicted and given long prison terms is much greater than among whites. Even most parole boards are all white. The dirty work has to be done by some one so why not the Blacks? After all, we aresupposed to be "super masculine meniah anyway, or at least that appears to be the way society in general views us. The ditcll es will be cleared, and the prison mills wil continue to produce shoes and other articles to be sold to the general public. Historically "great" civilizations have used slaves to perform the tasks they felt were beneath them. So it is now but the slaves are called prisoners, and supposedly they deserve it! But every one should know by now, that prisons Tn fact do not rehabilitate, they only m crease the hostilities between the prisons and the society that put them in there. Black people have historical gripes against white JUStice because it has been used not in our interest, but in the interest of the rullng class, the self reliant industrialists. Historically, capitalism has forced men and women to be shackled, imprisoned, or killed for dissenting views concerning JUstice, But since the great awakening mental shackles are being used more and more to restrain people. The milatary theory of divide and conquer is being applied to all races and nationalities. Some even believe it's working. To be continued next week MARC WEINBERG' S ''norg ani c s'' There is a big industry in the United States that is solely devoted to slowly killing us. This industry is the food processing industry. The people in this industry are the ones responsible for, among other things, white flour, white rice, and whites ug ar. They're the ones that start off with basically nutritous foods and end up with foods so devitalized and denutrified that they are almost totally devoid of any nutritive value. These are alos the people who pasteurize and homogenize milk, leaving it with 1 e ss than the dubious worth it had to begin with. Unfortunately, the food processors have left their mark on almost every food product we eat. Even the "fresh" vegetables we see have been picked before they've ripened and been stored in refrigeration units in which the release of a certain amount of gas controls the rate at which they ripen before they're taken out to be sold. Actually, the whole thing is a conspiracy. In league with the food processors are our friendly, local, neighborhood grocery stores and the advertising industry. These three units working together have convinced the American public that all the food they buy is good for them, that it will help them grow and it will supply them with all the essential vitamins and minerals. This is probably the biggest lie we have ever been fooled into believeing. Boy is my face red. It seems to me that the only way to get vegetables, fruit, grains, etc. would be to get them fresh or to get them in their least processed forms. If one looks hard enough, one can find ways to beat the system. There is a grower of "organic" (no harmful chemical sprays or synthetically produced fertilizer is used) oranges in Bradenton: THe Patron Angel Citru Groves. They charge $2 per half bushel of oranges as compared to most groves which charge about $2. 25. There are Mennonites on Fruitville Road who sell eggs.and there are health food stores and the co-op where one can get "organic" grains, seeds, nuts, and nut butters Two rules of thumb: 1)if it is sold in a grocery store it is not nutritous and 2) eat it raw. I would like to apologize for my banana bread recipe. I was trusting my memory and I left out a few ingredients. The recipe should've read: 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour 1 cup honey 2 eggs i cup mashed bananas 3/4 cup buttermilk 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 (or more) taspoon vanilla 1/2 cup nuts 1/2 cup taisins l)mash bananas, 2)stir honey and eggs together, 3)cobine other liquids with honey and eggs, 4)sift dry ingredients together (it's not necessary to sift the whole wheat flour), S)add sifted dry ingredients to liquid, 6) add nuts and raisins and stir whole mixture, 7) oil pan and add bread, 8) bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until done.
