Arthur A recent gift of photographic equipment combined with a similar gift made some time ago will permit offering the first studio program in darkroom work for New College undergraduates. Mrs. Joe J. Marx made a gift recently of a considerable amount of darkroom equipment and supplies to the college in memory of her late husband, who was both a photographer and teach of note. Marx specialized in sub-miniature photography and was recognized aa one of the country's leaders in this field. He also taught general photography for several years in this area and had highly successful classes. Other equipment came through the generosity of author John D. MacDonald, who is a photographer of considerable experience and who took some of the finest photographs of Arnold Toynbee when that famous historian was on the New College campus. The photographic equipment now is being set up in studio space on campus and Michael von Guttenberg, a tutor in German and also an amateur photographer and oviemaker, is expected to direct a program in the darkroom techniques under the Division of the Humanities. more

NEW COLLEGE Page 3 SISTER COLLEGE CITES PROBLEMS Higher education today, if news reports are valid, is going through a period of great uncertainty. For instance, it is generally considered that faculty lead the way toward greater innovations on campuses and that administrations, more aware of the economics, are the leaders in the resistance movement. Even this may change. Antioch College, rated as one of the innovative colleges in the nation, recently issued a news release telling how ita board of trustees had ruled against a faeilty petition which called for "a change in the direction of administration" because of problems that they believed resulted innovation and experimentation. Answered the board of trustees, according to the release, "Antioch College must continue to innovate and experiment in order to find ways to improve education and meet the needs of today's students." 30-
