/N-Ews RELEASE NEw CoLLEGE SARASOTA, FLORIDA 33578 1 165 -4/17/68 813 / 355-7131 Ref.: Furman C. Arthur FOR RELEASE: SUNDAY, APRIL 21, 1968 SARASOTA:--One of the leaders of the "Hodern Poetry" seminar in New College's "Dialog" series for interested area adults has more than an academic interest in the subject--she's a prize-winning poet herself. Second-year student Helen Hickey, co-leader of the "Poets of Art, Poets of Action" seminar with second-year student Paul Adomites, was awarded a "superior" rating for original poetry at the Florida State Poetry Festival held last weekend at the University of South Florida. She was also given the honor of reading her poems at the afternoon session of the Festival, reserved for the best presentation in each category of the competition. Helen's and Paul's seminar will be one of five offered by New College students to the public beginning April 29. Helen has also had poetry published in a national poetry review, as well as the literary supplement of The Catalyst, the New College student newspaper. In addition, Helen has distinguished herself academically. She is the first New College student to attempt graduation in two years. She will be 18 when she graduates. more


Page 2 -New College Helen's senior thesis, "A Cultural Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry," will form the basis of part of the seminar. She will concentrate on poets James Dickey and Robert Bly, while Paul will deal chiefly with W. B. Yeats, T. S. Eliot and Hart Crane. Paul, a literature major who has done several research projects on the poets he will consider, has h a d poems and short stories of his own published in The Catalyst Literary Supplement. He also \vrites a weekly music column for the school paper. Another seminar open to area residents in the college-community series is "Psychology of Animal and Human Behavior," taught by first-year student Don Heth. Although only a freshman, Don participated in a National Science Foundation-sponsored seminar in Experimental Psychology at Western Michigan University last summer, and will probably major in that subject at New College. New developments in psychology, with emphasis on experimental analysis of behavior under a variety of conditions will be the focus of Dan's seminar. The leader of the seminar on "Literary Theory and the Art of Poetry," third-year student Larry Alexander, also was the recent recipient of a coveted award. Larry was named a 1968 Woodrow Wilson designate, virtually assuring him of financial assistance at Princeton University graduate school. Larry's seminar, although also having to do with the general subject subject of poetry, will take a different approach from Paul and Helen's group. It will consider poetry through the study of literary theory and aesthetics. more -

The seminar progran begins April 29, nnd will continue for five consecutive Mondays. Fee is $5 per seminar, plus the cost of books, and enrollment is limited to 20 students in each group.
