& PLANETEARTH SUNDAY SCHOOL BULLETIN Published by Students of New College Sarasota, Florida SURVIVAL WEEK April 16-22, 1970 "Remember the good old days when only God could end the world?" CJ'lgt Chatlge J.. POPULATION THE CONDITION Position : Man is but a part of the fabric of life dependent on the whole fabric for his very ex istence. As the most highly developed tool-using animal, he must recognize that the unknown evolutionary destinies of other life forms are to be respected, and act as gentle steward of the earth's community of being. Situation: There are now too many human beings, and the problem is growing rapidly worse. It is potentially disastrous not only for the human race but for most other life forms. Goal: The goal would be half of the present world population, or less ACTION number eighteen Social j political: FirS\, a massive effort to con vince the governments and leaders of the world that the problem is severe. And that all taJk: about raising food-production well intentioned as it is-simply puts off the only real solution: re duce population. Demand immediate participa tion by all countries in programs to legalize abortion, encourage vasectomy and sterilization (provided by free clinics) free insertion of intrauterine loops try to correct traditional cultural attitudes that tend to force women into childbearing-remove income tax deductions for more than two children above a specified incoll}e le.vel, and scale it so that lower income families are forced to be careful too -or pay families to limit their number. Take a vigorous stand against the policy of the right-wing in the Catholic hier archy and any other institutions that exercise an irresponsible social forOC. in regard to this ques tion; oppose and correct simple-minded booster ism that equates population growth with con tinuing prosperity. Work ceaselessly to have all political questions be seen in the light of this prime problem. but may produce less children. Share the pleasure of raising cb,ildren widely, so that all need not directly reproduce to enter into this basic human experience. We must hope that no one woman would give birth to more than one child, during this period of crisis. Adont children. Let rever ence for life and reverence for the feminine mean also a reverence. for other species, and future human lives, most of which are threatened. Abraxas Press Shows Prints The community: Explore other socjal structures and marriage forms, such as group marriage and polyandrous marriage, which provide family life Our own heads: "I am a child of all life, and all living beings are my brothers and sisters, my children and grandchildren. And there is a child within me waiting to be brought to birth, the baby of a new and wiser self." Love, love making, a man and woman together, seen as vehicle of mutual realization, where the creation of new selves and a new world of being is as important as reproducing our kind. Two members of the fine arts faculty of New College and more than a dozen of their students will offer a show of their prints at the Up Here Gallery at 1292 First Street in Sarasota, beginning Saturday April 18. An opening reception will be held at 8: 30 p.m. Saturday at the gallery to inaufurate the two week exhibition. F acuity who arranged for the exhibition and whose works will be shown are Herbert C. Stoddard and Roberta Balk. Together with their students, they will have an all print show to be known as" Abraxas Press at New College. This marks the first showing for this group although various groups of fine arts faculty and students have held shows at other area galleries, including a highly successful recent show of students' work held at the college's own galleries, Harra Meets With SEC THE TWO HUNDRED DOLLAR QUESTION After discussion with Business Manager Charles C. Harra, the SEC last !light moved that the administration limit the billing reservatio fee to three times during any student's time at New College. Reed Wins SEC Chair Newly-elected chairman Larry Reed was approved by the SEC to act as its representative at the next adminstrative officers meeting to present the SEC motion and negotiate it. In addition, the SEC suggested that any future decisions in regard to billing procedures be made after consultation with students, and letters to this effect be sent to appropriate administrative officers. Harra's comments dealt largely with the reasons for the establishment of the $200 bill as a reservation fee eaCh year, withstudents Third-year student Larry Reed defeated complaining loudly that it is absurd to bill first-year student Robert Levy in the run-off who isn'tgoingto be here for the entire year, for SEC chairman yesterday.

Councn Motjon Grants Refund In Tuesday's College Council meeting, a motion was passed to clarify financial status of students in academic difficulty. The motion introduced by Professor Danforth Ross, stated that: Students dismissed for academic reasons during the course of a term be given a tuition and room refund for the balance of the term provided they have paid their bills at the beginning of the term, This action was taken becai1Se some students in academic trouble have not paid their bills for the term fearing they might be dismissedcausing them to lose all the money. Their delay has placed pressure on Business Manager Charles Harra, and has created further complexities in the entire bill-payment problem. In relation to this, the Council also passed a motion which stated that: Persons now delinquent in fees be given (continued on page 2) Three New College students have won Herbert H.

Q) Cf) The Condition position: Pollution is an excess production of substances which cannot he absorbed or transmuted rapidly enough to offset their introduction, thus cau ing changes the cycle is not prepared for. All organisms have wastes and by-products, and these are indeed part of the total eco-system; energy is passed along the line and refracted in various ways, "the rainbow body." This is cycling, not pollution. situation: The human race in the last century has allowed its production and dissemination of wastes, by-products and various chemical substances to become excessive. Pollution is directly banning the eco-system. It is also ruining the environment in very direct ways for humanity itself. goal: Clean air, clean clear-running rivers, the Presence of Pelicans and Ospreys in our lives, unmuddied language and good dreams. Action social/political: Waste and by-product quantity must be reduced. Strong legislation controlling DDT and related pesticides with no fooling around. Direct exposure of the collusion of certain scientists, the pesticide industry, and agri-business in trying to block this legislation. Strong penalties for air and water pollution by industry. "Polution is somebody's profit." Pftase out petroleum fuels, explore all possible energy sources of a non-polluting nature: solar power. Tell the truth regarding atomic waste disposal and the threat it represents. Stop all germ and chemical warfare research and experimentation. Laws and sanctions encouraging the use of bio-degradable substances; sanctions against wasteful use of paper, etc. which adds to the solid waste of cities. Detennine methods of re-cyclmg solid urban waste; and re-cycling as a basic principle should infonn all waste-disposal thinking. the community: DDT and such: don't use them. Air pollution: use less cars. Cars pollute the air, and one or two people riding looely in a lluge car is an insult to intelligence and the Muse. Share rides. pick up hitch hikers, legalize hitch-hiking and build hitch-hiker waiting stations along the highways. Also--as a step toward the new world--walk more; look for the best routes countryside for long-distance walkin,; tnps: :San francisco to Los Angeles down the Coast Range, for one. Learn how to use your own manure as fertilizer if you're in the country--as the far East has done for centuries. There's a way, and it's safe. t t Usually aging in concrete vats or cisterns sunk in the earth adjoining the field is the only processing. After @ 2 months the material is a consistent fluid which can be ladled or pumped into the soil between the rows of plants. Problems of worms and disease in Japan are negligible. Solid waste: boycott wasteful Sunday papers which use up trees, and add vastJy to the solid waste of the city. Refuse paper bags at the store. Organize padt and street cleanup festivals. Doo't waste--( a monk and an old master were once walking in the mountains. They noticed a little hut upstream. The monk said, "A wise hennil must live there" the master said, "That's no wise hennit, you see that lettuce leaf floating down the stream, be's a Waster." Just then an old man came running down the hill with his heard flying and caught the floating lettuce leaf.) our own heads: Part of the trouble with talking about is that the use of it is not just a practical device, it's almost an establishment religion. There is something in western culture that wants to totally wipe out creepy-crawlies and feels repugnance for toadstools and snakes. This is fear of one's own deepest natural inner-self wilderness areas, and the answer is, relax. Relax around bugs, snakes and your own hairy dreams. Again fanners can and should share their crop with a certain percentage of bugiife as "paying their dues"-Thoreau says "How then can the harvest fail? Shall I not rejoice also at the abundance of the weeds whose seeds are the granary of the birds? It matters little com parative!y whether the fields fill the farmer's hams. The true husbandman will cease from anxiety, as the squirrels manifest no concern whether the woods will bear chestnuts this year or not, and finish his labor with every d ay, relin claim to the of fields, and sacrifJCing an his mmd not only his first but h1s last fruits also." In the realm of thought. inner experience, conscioumess, as in the outward realm of interconnection, there is a difference between a balanced cycle, and the excess which cannot be handled When the balance is right, the mind recycles from highest illumination to the stillness of dreamless sleep; the alchemical "transmutation." ............ _.._, T.

The key question Pat Patterson is asking himself is "why'did lgo through all that shit?" Can anyone out there answer that one?

Spare Patterson the sympathy, he's satisfied that his mind is reaching out to new places it's never been before, and that's good enough for most anybody. He'll still be around taking an interest in the school, studying it passively. But it won't even do to show sympathy for the school, it being the school's loss of its last rabid idealist prodigy, because it is the schoo\ the time and place, that is responsible. Marl< Friedman The next time you see a diesel locomotive pulling a train along, remember that the crankcase oil in its engme is changed only once every l 00,000 miles. It is also good business for the locomotive to run a million or more miles before it is worn out. Most of us find it necessary to add oil to our own automobiles every few hundred miles, yet how many miles before an American car has to be junked? Boeing airplanes are subjected, inspected, and rejected at every stagQ of construction because it is simply too dramatic, costly and embarrassing to have them fall out of the sky with 100 to 500 passengers aboard. The story is repeated over and over a&ain. When things have to be made to last, it can be don'!.

(Why not a llghtbulb that will last for years rather than weeks?) Other products which are designed for "one time use" can and should be converted back to raw material, recycled and reused. Disposable containers could naturally disintegrate into non-polluting compost. (Wouldn't it be great not to have our wilderness beaches littered with plastic bleach bottles?) This game of make it cheap, seU it let it b.reak, and throw it away has got to stop. We can't continue filling in every ravine with refuse, poUutin& the air, and poisoning our lakes and streams. Nor can we continue to lay waste virgin land in the relentless search for more and more raw materials until there is no place left for man or beast.

I FOU Laundry tips The individual who is concerned about water pollution can do more than simply change to a low-phosphate (9.8% or 5.0%) detergent. STOP, Society to Overcome Pollution, a women's action group in Canada, has come up with a procedure that will give a white wash with less than one per cent phosphate. It is soap and soda. Washing soda is available in supermarkets (Arm and Hammer is a well known brand), as is soap powder (or soap flakes. They are reputedly cheaper than detergents, and as effective when properly used. There is a possibility of the clothes yellowing if you switch directly from detergents to soap and soda, without "stripping." Stripping means washing the clothes by machine in hot water with 4 tablespoons of soda. This "strips" the clothes of all remaining detergent residue. After stripping, soap and soda will give you a "white" wash. For the amount of soap, read the package directions. Add from 2 to 4 tablespoons of soda to the machine, depending on the hardness of your water. AWARD I The week before last, the SEC granted a Rosa Luxembourg award to Mr. Harra and Captain Styles for their "great and speedy efficiency" in closing off the road behind Hamilton Center and the Pei dorms at night.
