COLLEGE NEWS RELEASE NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1966 In the tradition-bound field of fencing, New College is a new name, but one in which student enthusiasm rapidly is turning into student competence. Organized only last October, the student club already has competed in several tournaments and its members now are thinking seriously of holding their own intercollegiate meet. Bob Dixon, of Hontclair, N.J., a first-year student, is the captain of the team and probably its most ardent member. He and Bill Powell, of Denver, Colo., a fellow first-year student, were casting about in early fall for some concentrated form of exercise and decided on fencing. They quickly found that Bill Warinner, an architect, had experience in fencing and had instructed some New College students last year. agreed to instruct the group and practice sessions were set up twice a week and the use of the auditorium at the City Mobile Home Park was obtained. With two tournaments giving them a bit of experience, the fencers feel that they are developing as a team and are anxious to move on. Dixon said, "There is so much to be learned by taking part in the tourna-ments including the many formalities of a match." Coach Warriner, who did his fencing as an undergraduate at the University of Florida, said that he took the team to their first tourney only a month after they started fencing. -more-


New College Fencing Club Page 2 "They all did quite well,11 he said, noting that it takes at least a year to develop into a competitor. As for fulfilling the requirements for exercise, Warinner said the sport does that. "Fencing takes good physical condition. It's not power that counts, but tone," he said. "In the muscles used and the skills required, fencing is a cross between boxing and ballet." Warinner will take his team to avo meets this month, one at the University of Florida and another at Florida Presbyterian College. He plans one at New College probably in March. For the student fencers, learning is not only a matter of discipline and skill, but also some self-sacrifice. Each member of the club bought his own equipment, which means a mask, special gloves, protective jackets, and, of course, the fencing foil. Other students working tdth the team are Allan Jaworski, Passaic, N.J., Ken Moore, Palm City, Fla., Sharon Landesman, University City, Mo., Elizabeth Stephens, Mexico City, Mexico, and Leslie Schockner, Ft. Rucker, Ala. -30-
