SPECIAL CONVENTION ISSUE HARRA by Fred J ;>ckocm ProJect REAl.; New College's one am only community action program, has re cently been incorporated as a non-profit corEoration in the State of Florida. The logos behind this move stems, in part, from the stumbling blocks placed in the way of the PrOJect by the New College business office. The incidents below are indicative of the attitude ta ken by that office in regard to an impCl' tant educational experiment at NC. Mr. Harra 's antipathy toward ProJect REAL has been well documented. When Patti Barry (Marshall Barry's wife) went to Harra over Christmas to get some of the money budgeted to the ProJect, he told her that he didn't think ProJect RE AL was the type of activity NC should be sponsoring and he wasn't going tog i v e her the money. Marshall Barry went to President Elmendorf who forced Harra to !&lve up the portion of the ProJect's mo ney requested by Patti. It is not now am never was Harra's JOb to determine edu cational policy at NC. Yet he chose to use his office to harrass an education a 1 function because he disagreed with its goals and methods. The most ludicrous instance of this harrassment is the case of Mike Macey. Mike worked for ProJect REAL first tenn under the Work Study program. However when he sent in his time sheet, Harra questioned the propriety of giving Work Study money to a proJect member for ProJect work. Mr. Simcoe assured Harra that this is not only legal but desirable in that Public Law 88-452 Sec. 12 relating to Work Study Programs states in part: "The Commissioner will, to the ex tent feasible, give preference to applications which provide for emplO)'Olent of eligible students in Community Ac tion Programs. ProJect REAL is the only "Commu nity Action Program" at NC. Mike did not receive his money. Dr. Barry fimlly went to Dr. Elmendorf but could still get no action out of Harra. Harra, grasping at straws, sent a request to Dr. De me, head of Social Sciences, asking li> proval to pay Mike out of that department's funds; of course Deme refused There was never any question but that the money should come from WorkSttrl,r funds. Harra's actions, especially in. re gard to Dr. De me are simple -har rassment at best. Mike W2.5 finally paid last week. the $100, however, did not come from Wolk Study money. It was plundered from the ProJect REALbudget by Harra. This phenomenon of paying W or k Study students from the ProJect out of the ProJect's budget, is curious. 'It has happened to every student who was supposed to receive Work Study money for ProJect work including Phil Bird, Kim McCutcheon, and Kathy Turck. Harra ha; claimed that such spending was authorized by Dr. Barry; yet the only evidence he offers are statements, signed b)Barry, to the effect that so-and-so worked so many hours---a verification for theWcrk Study program. No authorization for ex penditure of ProJect funds. All these stu dents qualified for and were supposed to be on Work Study. Harra's rip-off, inthi; area comes to about $450. A foot note to this saga is the case of Sherry Litwin, who was Barry's research assistant 1 as t year. This position is normally paid for by the Division of Social Sciences. Who paid? The ProJect, of course. Thus, 'the ProJect was irpped off for another $ll8 by our own college. There is simply no excuse for these actions. Any speculation as to the cause of this behavior, and why it is tolerated by those higher up than Harra, must be un derstood in the light of Harra's antipath{ to the ProJect. Harra is not alone inthe:e feelings. Last year there was a movement among the Board of Trustees to fire Barry because the ProJectwas giving NC a bad name in Sarasota; m.aking it difficult to raise money. So 1 f Harra 's actions are confusing. consider his motives. In any event, New College mustnever allow its educational policy to be determined by the local community, or any outside community. And although to remain innovational, there must be constant self-criticism within our own community, what is not required is the pathological harrassmeot by administra tive officers of legitimate education a 1 endeavors. GOD BLUE YOU Notice To AllWork Grant Students: From: COD If you haven't returned blue forms, do !Q If you don't, it will be assumed that you no longer need a work grant (even for next year!?)

PROJECT REAl CHARGE by Chris Van Dyk "I feel that they have not wanted to understand my position. I am responsible to see that proper stewardship of funds ex ists. "I have to be able to assure the Presi dent and the Trustees that I have sufficient information regarding expenditure of money should the Internal Revenue Serv ice, prev1ous contnbutors, or a trustee want to know why and by whom any money is spent. I have fllowed financi a 1 procedures that would protect the institu tion. "I do not nfake judgements as to whe ther or not money should be spent, but I must ascertain that the expenditure is au thorized--that receipts for reimbursemens are available where appropriate." Mr. Harra must be able to show IRS who a check is paid to and why: for what goods, for what services. ProJect REALhas been delinquent in accountng its expenditures; that is, if Harra is a "stumbling block" in the way of obtaining paym en t for ProJect REAL work, it is not because he opposes the program in any way whatsoever, but that he cannot determine to whose budget the check is to be charged, and if it has the proper authorization, or CONSENSUS: A "sense of consensus that U'NW is a good idea" emerged from its first New College planning meeting Wednes::lay night. The $40, 000 granted NC to p 1 an and develop" the program here is "seed money", Provost Charles Lyons exP,ained Should New College decide to participtte in the program, more money would prc:b ably follow from donors like the Ford F am dation, the U. S. Office of Education and others. New College is not under obligation even to participate in the program, however. Its implementation here would be under NC's own planning and conditions. This gives NC both much freedom and much difficulty in meetings like Wednes day's. Another variable is its relationships to Union Graduate School which could be non-existent (although many of the schods participating in UWW are also involved in c.AN JICDfm To: President Elmendorf Provost Lyons Humanities Division Board of Trustees Last year a total of twenty successful e valuations in Art History were given du ring the two terms an Art Historian was in residnece, a total far below the aver age per Humanities facult}nember. During term two this year there are only thirty-six sutqetts registered for Art History courses and tutorials, which is not an overload when compared to other in structors' registration figures. Students have already expressed thatArt History was one of their lowest hiring priorities; in the October poll, Art History ranked twentieth, receiving only 1 first place vote. Students' interests are in different areas which are unfilled by faculty such as cultural anthropology. education, photo graphy, filmmaking, communications and media and drama; also there are dis ciplines with so many students as to preclude the psooibility of frequent s m a 11 seminars (such as literature and psychology). THEREFORE; WE ASK1 DEMAND, CAJCl.E PLEAD, IMPLORE, AND REQUIRE: That New College not hire an Art Historian in fulfillment d the two new Hu manities posittions authorized by the Board of Trustees. That the antiquated hiring prioritiesthat caii for the hiring of an Art Historian before any other position be changed. That the students have a direct and ac tive voice in deciding new hiring priori ties for the College. I I If If 6 t the work that was done for which he is p:r ying. There is no general fund that is ch31' ged for ProJect REAL costs or work study costs. Every program is budgeted for a gi ven amount of money and work for that program is debited against its budget. There is no work-study salaried. In the case of Mike Macey, Harra just could not figure out wha;e budget to Clm&f it to. When Marshall Barry signed the wcrk sheet the first time, he signed it "econo mics department" and there is no such tud get, at least for the type of work Mike Macey performed. When this was brought to Barry's attention, he signed it Social Sciences, which needed Dr. Deme1s ap proval. This was, of course, not in Barry's original budget for soc sci work studf and De me did not approve it. At this time it w2.5 decided to charge it to ProJectRFAL so that Mike could get his money. The decision to charge it to Project REAL' s budget was made, as the work was for 'Project REAL; all work study salary is budgeted against the particular budget for which the work is done. There is no general fund for work study out of which funds are taken. Money was NOT ripped off, as work done for Project REAL was paid by ProJect REAL: the government kicked in its share of work study money.

Furthermore, there is a limit to the amount of money per student that the government will pay. qualifies a student for work-study but there is no work-study fund as such. The amQJlt that the college pays is counted against tle particular department, program or divisiCll r the student is working, i.e. Soc Sc1, ProJect REAL or library. Last year students on work-study earned $50, 000 and the government paid but $12, 000 of it Every voucher for money must have adequate and proper documentation for review by IRS and CWSP. As far as Project REAL goes, Harra stated that usually the on 1 y justification for accounting of the expend itures is that Barry is Director not quite proper accounting procedure. Dr. Elmendorf himself can't ask for money with an undocumented voucher, The Divison of Social Sciences has to approve all expenditures drafted against its budget; the individual instructors can draft on it if Dr. Deme approves. Barry hired a bunch of people for ProJect RE.i\L but the money wasnever budgeted against Soc Sci at the time the budget was put together, and as a result their wages have been deducted from ProJect REAL's budget since they are wolking for ProJect RFAL THE SllVJ\\ Union) or as overlapping as New College Gorfein also questioned the feasibiJity chose. of lowering costs, which Lyons had exDr. K"nox urged a decision for what plained would be a c com p 1 ish e d by Dr. Gorfein called a "traget date.

REFLECTIVE LIVING In our c o 11 e c t i v e f a n t a s y New College's Kingsley Hall would be a pla::e where the social and acedemic realms would merge and become as one. We cur rently attend classes, converse in faculty offices, use the library, and look ourse],. ves away in our rooms to study. We call this "work" --what we're here for. We also visit with friends, have parties, and play a variety of games. We call this''s::> cializing" and while it's not "what we're here for" the fact remains that much of our tim e is spent engaged in such activities. That these two parts of our lives are so obviously separated and often an tithetical is a source of anxiety and of disappointment for many of us and a situation we would like to change. To do so involves a shift in attitudes about learning from something which wedosane of the time (in classes etc. ) and which we "get" only from some sources (books professors, etc.) to something which we do all of thie time and which we create in a total enviroment. ---We fee 1 it necessary to collect ourselves together, an organism of "critical friends" not to separate ourselves from the rest of the college, nor to alienate those not fully involved, but rather to maximize the possibility of realizing thi> fantasy. It is conceivable that we w i 1 1 provide an educational model for others to consider, and have thus constituted ourselves and whoever else becomes com mitted to the realization of the ideals put forth above as participants in an "expet' iment". We want to encourage the participation, on some level if not that of total commitment, of everyone iJ. the cd lege. Commitment to the proJect will entail the following, ordered fromthe general to the specific: 1} A recognition of the need for a new pt radigm for the purpose of education (or is it in truth the most ancient?): Towards the realization of the individual as a mole person, towards the actualization of self. 2}A cooperative (as opposed to competitive) appraoch to learning. An attempt to learn from each other, students and il culty, roles blurr all learners, all teachErS. In short, a r aliz::1tion of the ideals of the and of the community of scholars--not academicists, but scholars. l)Espousald the belief that learning for the purpose of realization of self is a lie long process, that the concept of time in crements (three years for a degree, ten weeks for a course, or one month for an Continued on p. 2
