1 l l _j NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C. ARTHUR INFORMATION For Use: Sunday, May 26, 1968 ;-.)..L;u 5/26/68 A new staff has been elected to edit The Catalyst, the New College student newspaper, with this week's issue. $ucceeding graduating senior Laurie Paulson as editor will be second-year student Paul Adomites of Trafford, Pa. Adomites, who was editor of his high school news-paper, becomes the fifth editor of the weekly that was founded by students early in the first year of the college and has been operated independently by them since. Taking over as managing editor will be second year student Steve Marsden of Eldora, Iowa. Marsden will be in charge of the production of the paper, supervising layout and coordinating the technical aspects of publication. more


/ 'j' page 2 Catalyst First year student Marge Sedensky of Cleveland, Ohio will assist editor Adomites and be associate editor. As The Catalyst's regular correspondent at student government meetings, Miss Sedensky was assistant editor under Paulson and handled many special duties and assignments. The newspaper begins its fifth year of publi-cation in September and is expected to maintain its tradition of independence. Since the founding of the paper, its staffs have sold advertising and subgcriptions to operate without help from the college or from student government funds. Now the newspaper owns much of its own office equipment and has an equipped darkroom for its. photographic work. The first two editors of The Catalyst were graduated last July. Laura Rawson, now Mrs. Frederick von Behren, is living in Sarasota while her husband continues his studies in music. Tom Todd, second editor, is now completing his first year at Yale Law School.


/ / p page 3 Catalyst Kenji Oda, third editor, has taken an academic leave of absence in order to get some first-hand journalism experience. He was recently granted a scholarship by the Newspaper Fund of America to work on a daily newspaper this summer. Retiring editor Paulson also is headed for the field of journalism. After graduation in June he will begin work as a reporter for a newspaper in suburban New Jersey. "It may sound trite," Paulson says, "but my work on The Catalyst has helped me tremendously. I've had to produce copy, and a newspaper, under some pretty trying circumstances. It gives you confidence. "The most important part of it for me has been that the paper is self sustaining. Anyone can produce an official, subsidized college paper. It's a lot tougher to make it on your own,"he said. #
