Elmendorf Explains Evaluation Reveals Second Year Exams STUDENTS LISTEN attentively as President Elmendorf explains the new method of evaluation. Mor e than 100 students attended the meeting Tuesday in the Music Room. Two Next Divisions Announce Term Courses The Humanities and the Natura:!

Members of the College Council are President Elmendorf, Vicepresident Paul Davis, and Dean Robert Norwine, administration; Dr. Mayer, Dr. Earl Friesen, and Miss Barbara Fagan, faculty; and Chuck Hamilton, Ray Enslow,-and David Allen, students. President John Elmendorf discussed the newly adopted evaluation plan with over 100 students in the Music Room Tuesday. He also revealed plans to administer preliminary exams in a student's ma1or fields at the end of the second term of the second ye2.r. He explained the decision of the faculty at their last meeting to try to find out what students are doing and where they stand. The faculty felt that it was appropriate that something should be tested in the second year program, according to the president. The test will consist of two parts, one standardized and one devised by the division. They will be used to determine the fitness of the student to continue in his chosen field. ''These tests will be constructive and helpful in the direction of guidance and helping people determine courses of study in which they are qualified and interested," the president said. The evaluation plan's exact wording, which Mr. Elmendorf said was the subject of much discussion, calls for each faculty member to try to find out about students with which he has had contact. Processes of evaluation are to be determined by each teacher. They may b e based on tests or on other parts of the student' s wor k Whether they participate actively in t h e process of evaluation r e mains an option of students, Mr. Elmendorf stated in response to a question from the floor. Results of evaluation will not change a student' s status, he added. The president also mentioned plans t o make it easierfor teachers to determine who is in their classes. This will done by having students registering b y the fourth week of the term for classes they plan to attend. He also said that there a r e some indications that social conditions in the residences have been less conducive to study than they should be. In the question and answer period which followed, the president's talk, there was further discussion of evaluation, independent study, continuation of studies after the third year, the possibility of a senior examination, and other questions. UNA-USA To H ear Pres. Elmendorf President John Elmendorf will speak tomorrow at 3 pm in the Music Room to the Manat-ee County Chapter, the United Nations Association of the United States of America. His talk will be about human rights. All students and faculty are welcome at the meoeting of the association. This is the second of the two meetings of the UNA-USA at New College. The first was held on October 23 and featured a debate on whether the United Nations should be maintained. SEC Vote Ame \) Probation Syste The Student Executive Committee approved the tentatv-e adoption of a new probation procedure at their meeting last Wednesday. The new p lan is designed to help eliminate the vagueness of existing probation procedures outlined in the Modes of Procedure. Photographer To Show Work A fter Dinner John Nash Ott, a retired banker whose interest in time-lapse photography has led him into a whole new career, will show some of his work to students and guests of New College tonight at 6: 30. Ott's work in time-lapse photography, an avocation during a twenty-year banking career, now bas taken him into the field of research in studying the effects of light on growth responses in both plants anq animals, including human beings. Dr. Ott's pictures show that variations in the period, intensitx, and wavelength of light energy control certain plant growth processes such as setting of buds, opening of flowers, determination of sex, and maturing of certain fruits. He points out similar responses in animals and suggests how these may be brought about as the result of light entering the eyes. Dr. Ott is the second speaker in the college's newly reinstituted Friday night dinner and forum series. Special g uests are invited to a candlelight dinner with students, followed by a discussion with them. Professor of Philosophy Douglas Berggren and student Rick Kainz are making arrangements f o r the dinners and forums Under the new plan, a student who is sentenced to social probation serves that sentence in two steps--probation and imminent probation. The definition of social probation has not been changed by the ruling: i.e., for a specified period of time, the student shall be of such status that, with due consideration to circumstances, any further infraction of the rules would result in his expulsion. In addition, a 1 e t t e r is sent to the stud en t1s parents informing them of the situation. There are no specific social or academic sanctions involved. The point of difference between the okl and new systems is the addition of the" imminent probation" step. A student under imminent probation is, in effect, two infractions away from expulsion, for any infraction on his part, with due consideration to circumstances, would result in his being returned to the status of social probation. This two-step procedure holds only "coming down." The Modes of Procedure, which involves two warning stages before probation, will still be employed prior to probation. Steve Hall, member of the Disciplinary Committee, was instrumental in the development of the plan. He commented, "There was much discussion before a vote was taken.... It should be stressed that the plan is only tentative. Other actions taken by the SEC included the formalizing of the House Committee and the election of a new chairman, The House Committee, which assumes responsibility for student (Continued on page 3, column 3 ) BETSY OLSEN, 1., and Bud Holder launch a Sunfish with the new hoist. Dock Facilities Mr. Peter Odell, Athletic Director, announced this week that dock, hoist, and locker facilities for the sailboats have been installed and that a new check-out procedure has been developed. Changes from the former procedure and an explanation of the use of the new equipment have been placed in each student's mailbox. The facilities are located on the bayshore behind College Hall. Normally there are four boats available for use by New College Now Complete sailors, including three Sunfish and one pram. The pram and one of the Sunfish are currently being repaired, however. They should be ready after the Christmas holiday. The basic change in the checkout procedure is that keys to the lockers, which house the tillers and daggerboards, will be checked out, rather than checking out the daggerboards themselves. McWhorter Wins Discussion at the informally conducted meeting, which was held in President John Elmendorf's office, centered around the questions, "Are students studying? If not, why not? And what can be done to promote studying?" It was agreed that students do face various problems in finding time and a place to study. Several possible steps to correct these problems were suggested. They were An administrative second look at the orientation program for new students, 2) Consideration by the faculty of ways to interpret problems of students, and 3) Initiation by students of closer student-faculty relationships. New College Prepares f or Chr i stma s Solo Posi t ion Cheryl McWhorter, first-year student, has gained a solo position as featured flutist with the Florida West Coast Youth Symphony. She will play Mozart's "Concerto#1 in GMajor for flute" during the coming spring concert tour. During the meeting the need for recreation, snack bar, and lounging facilities in an area other than the residence complex was mentioned. Opinion was that these facilities would help to alleviate certain conditions which are not conducive to study. The meeting was adJourned with no formal action having been taken except the appointment of Dr. George Mayer as secretary.

Cheryl has been playing the flute for eight years and is first-flutist on the Youth Symphony. A dent of Miami, she has also been on the Florida All-State Band.


Page 2 Editorially Speaking SEC Amendment Is Just a Start The Student Executive Committee's decision to amend the probation procedure was, we feel, a wise and perhaps an inevitable one. In the past, a student has never been clear as to where he stood once a probation period was over. Would future in fractions be considered independently of the circumstances leading to the probation, or would his "slate" never again really be clean? The SEC action is an important step toward arriving at an answer to this question. Although the newly-adopted "step -system11 is as yet somewhat vague, it is certainly an im provement over the Modes of Procedure. The revamping of the disciplinary should be conducted on a broader scale, however. Specifically, an swers must be defined for questions such as "How long after a student received a warning does he remain in the shadow of that warning?" That is, does there come a definite point --a month, a term, a year after the infraction--when his status is cleared and further infractions are considered inde pendently of the warning? In other words, we feel the SEC has touched upon a sig nificant problem in our disciplinary system. They have ventured a solution "coming down." They should also at tempt one "going up." The Student Executive Committee has made a good be ginning by amending certain of the probationary aspects of student discipline. However, this change is only a first step in the direction of completely fair and equitable dis cipline. This is not t o sugges t that there is no good whatsoever in the present system or in the current manne r of its e xecu tion. The system is as sound as any and is apparently consistent with other New College ideals and with student wishes, and, for the most part, so is the enforcement of the code. Yet there are some indications that a greater degree of equality could be attained. Not the least of these indications are complaints made personally to us by several students. These indications {and personal observations) are suffi cient to cause us to wonder whether existing rules are en forced impartially, whether intrinsic time-honored prin ciples of liberty and JUStice are adhered to by those who discipline students, and whether great improvement is not needed in this area. Specifically, we question the fairness of some students being reported for the first infraction and others being giv en repeated "extra chances." We question the procedures by which students can be accused by extra-ordinary methods. We ask whether, when so accused, they are not, in effect, considered guilty before guilt is actually proven (or even if proof is required before punishment). The fact that the answers to these questions, and others, are not known is, in itself, indicative of a flaw in the sys tem. Student discipline should not be dealt with in whis pers behind closed doors. In nearly every case it should be a matter of public record. One ofthe reasons for the less than perfect situation now is a mistaken desire on the part of some to protect those who must answer to charges brought against them. They reason that such action should be known to no one but the student involved. Often, however, this secrecy does not act in the best interest of the accused. What is done to one can be done to all. The Catalyst intends to investigate as thoroughly as possible these questions. We respectfully suggest that the SEC, in its official capacity, do the same. And if any verifiable :hort comings are uncovered in the punitive processes at New Col lege, we will publicize them and promote their immediate rectification, Next Week's Paper To Be Earlier, Bigger Next week, The Catal1fit will be distributed Thursday afternoon, but at the regular hour in order at those students who are leaving campus early may receive a copy of the paper before they leave. Also, next week's edition will contain eight pages. This will be only the second time in the paper's short history in printed form that it has published an eight page edition. The Catalyst 69ers Finally Lose, Clipped By Barbers (Special to The Catalyst) By Grantland Corn A !though Ed's Barber Shop jumped off to an early lead, the New College 69ers stormed back on a field goal by Larry Alexander and led 21--which was unfortunately the last time the 69ers were ahead. Play ing valiantly against a much taller team, the 69ers contained Ed's star forward former All-American Tim Eisnaugle and with a brilliant defensive effort held him to a mere 35 points. He made up for his lack of scoring by dominating both back boo rds. His five floor play marks him as a leading c andidat e fo all-leagw ho The 69ers trailed by eight points at halftime, and after a determined effort in the third quarter, faced a 20 point deficit. Only Richard Wall's offensive efforts kept the New College cagers within striking distance going into the final periof. After playing the Barbers on even terms for five minutes of the fourth quarter, Coach Pete Odell, cleared his bench; he evidently realized the utterfutility of the cause. The final score is not a true indication of the closeness of the game. Although the team ofBarberswon 7250, they could have run up a much greater margin in the closing min utes, The defeat marked the first of the season for the New College team, and evened their record at 1-1. In spite of a losing effort, the 69ers displayed an unusual scoring attack. It was unusual in that only three of nine players dominated the scoring--Richard Wall collected 14 points, Larry Alexander popped in 22 and Craig Bowman came out of hiding to dump in 10. George Finkle garnered the other four points. Although he did not break into the scoring column, John Cranor turned Mrs. Gresham Riley, 1., and Mrs. Earl Friesen, c. chat with one of the visitors. in a fine defensive performance. Pat Tarr and Dick Ogburn came off the bench with good efforts as well. Roy Van Vleck and Bill Chadwick both played well in the waning moments of action. A capacity crowd viewed W ednesday night's action. The next game will be Monday at 9 pm at tho:: Sarasota High School gym. The boys really appreciate the support given them. Let's support the fighting 69ers. Cheer them to victory Monday night. Library Receives gazines T Mone According to Dr. Corinne Wilson, head librarian, the New College library has recently been the recipient of two substantial gifts. TheW oman's Library Association for New College donated $3000 as a "Christmas gift. The WLA had raised $1700 of that sum through their fund-raising activities, but the members themselves contributed the remaining amount. The gift was made without restriction as to what specific use the money would be put. The second gift was the donation of a virtually-complete set of National Geographic magazine from 1915 to the present by Mrs. Margaret Sewell, librarian at Mirror Lake Junior High School in Mirror Lake, Florida. "We're very pleased to have them," commented Dr. Wilson in speaking of the maga zines. "What we at the library want more than anything else in the world are complete files of periodicals." As the library already possesses the National Geographic from 1934 to present, Dr. Wilson plans to give those magazines to some li brary in need of them. The justreceived magazines will be bound and placed in the Reference Room as soon as possible. December 10, 1965 Lette r s to the Editor Letters from readers are welcome. All are subject to condensation. Letters re ceived after 6 pm Tuesday will be printed the following week. Missing Cereal To the Editor: An unusual situation has arisen in our kitchen. The pretty little boxes of cereal that decorate the shelf above the coffee pot disappear each evening before dinner. It has been rumored that these boxes are being spirited away because students are actually eating the ce real. I s there any possibility of negotiating a compromise between students and cereal hiders wherein the students who have been subsisting on cereal might even promise to raise their maximum outside of class study time to two hours and five minutes if these precious boxes were to be returned? (Signed) Dan Davis Editor's Note: This bargain sounds fair enough, but perhaps it would be better to ask WHY students must subsist on cereal.

The basic humanities course for first-year students will deal with music and painting. Second-year students are invited to take the basic course, as it is substantially different from the one offered last year. Any second-year student who wishes to do so should talk to Miss Hassold. A Christmas Shopping Guide It seems that few are really aware of a situation that becomes more desperate as the days pass. Few at New College (because of our allpervading apathy) are conscious of the seriousness of this fact. There are only eleven shopping days until Christmas! Consider the implications of this. What about all the parents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, Harvard students, and exgirl friends at home who would like nothing better than a Christmas present from Sarasota, the Air Con ditioned City? Recognizing this, the author of this column, in his usual public spirit, has decided to compile a list of New College Christmas presents currently available in the Book Store. Just consider the wonders that can be bought. Paulson Formothers and sweethearts, the New College perfume Saturday Night, which nostalgically captures the fragrance of students broiling genuine U. S. Government ReJect steaks illegally on their balconies. The perfume comes in small sizes and larger vials shaped like Pepto Bismol bottles. There are several pieces of JeWelry available, including a silver pin shaped like cottage cheese with raisins, and a necklace with a pendant engraved on one side with the Great Seal of New College and on the other with the record of the wrestling team. There are available amulets against various dan gers, such as the Sarasota police and other people's dogs. Any of these would make fine gifts. There are several items appropriate for giving to other New Col lege students, such S a fork with a built-in flashlight for use during_ candlelight dinners, which 'll:;o registers, on a meter, whelner what is being consumed is also ed ible. There are also lock picks which fit inside shoes and are fully guaranteed for use inside Jail cells. There is also a device which facilitates note-taking during Social Science lectures. A light flashes in the Great Idea Indicator at ap propriate moments and allows the student to take notes without miss ing any significant point. A 3XS card is included. A computer for determining class attendance was ordered, but cancelled when it was pointed out that the fingers of one hand were sufficient. There are a number of books which were especially printed for Christmas giving, and which are available at nominal cost.

An instruc tional book is entitled How I Write Music Columns, by a short, noted columnist. Its descriptions of How ard Johnson's are especially notable, and its prose stands out. From the kitchen comes Cook the New College Way, featuring suCh delights as frozen pecan pie and grape Kool-Aid. It is suggested that directions be read carefully, however, in order to duplicate the delicate flavors. A separate book from the kitchen, 150Ways to Use Mushrooms Any Chance You Get, may become available soon. Finally, every New College student should purchase the gift that will be a sure hit under the Christmas tree. It is called the Great Game of New College, and is great fun for all ages.

Members of the club took three firsts, two seconds, and two thirds at the Florida West Coast Open Wrestling Tournament in St. Petersburg. New College students on the team were: Dennis Kezar, 165 pounds; 1st; Dave Rogg, 147 pounds, 1st; Hall McAdams, heavyweight, 1st; and Steve Waterman, 138 pounds, third. Their composite recond was ten wins, one loss. Also wrestling for the club were Bobbie Orton, Jr., and Eddie Gra ham, both of whom won second places, and Guy Locicero, who won a third.

The hero knows .md responds to his destiny, he must die of cancer in less than one year. He is driven not so much by death, as by the thought of his wasted life. Thus he responds to his first nega tive evaluation of himself with confusion; searching, running, drinking, gambling and trying to recreate the appearance of a life he never lived. With so little time, however, he could not long be content with merely changing the direction of his lack of purpose; so he finally returns to his work, this time with a sense of determination that car ries him through. The movies does not end with his death, but goes on to resolve the dilemma of his actions to his colleagues (the chorus). .KurO!:awa even adapts the device of a deus ex machina, in the form of a policeman, to resolve the conflict for them.

They decided to appear locally to raise money and were surprised when they were offered other bookings. "Do You Love Me" was their first hit in America, although "Glad All Over," their third American hit was released They seemed rather bored by the whole idea and proJected little personality to the crowd. Fans crushed forward and trampled us --the unfortunate souls in the front row. The DCS took this for granted, finished their act, and went on their way. Their private plane landed at a well-guarded spot at Tampa International Airport and fans engulfed the five young men. They seemed little impressed by the reception that had taken a terrific amount of planning. They hopped into a limousine and were off to the International Inn with a police escort. A few privileged reporters were allowed through the mobs of teens to attend a press conference. Mike Smith, Dave clarl<, Rick Huxley, and Denis Payton filed into the room and sat calmly at a table at the front. They answered questions with little interest or flair. About the only show of initiative came when they discussed how they got started. They have been to gether about four years.

TV P rogram To Feature Two Students A television program on campus life featuring two New College students will be broadcast on W1VT Channel 13, Tampa, tomorrow from 4: 30 to 5 pm. Part of a series of campus programs called College Kaleidoscope, the New College half-hour features first year students Hope Cole of Miami and Steve Hall of Chicago. Don Harris, W1VT moderator, will talk with the students. Filming of the show was done in the center courtyard of the new residence halls of New College with the two students seated under one of the 24 royal palms which are planted there. This is the second program filmed recently about New College and shown in the College Kaleidoscope series. Earlier Harris interviewed New College President John Elmendorf during one of the half-hour series. Going home for Christmas?

They seem pleased by this but admit they are not really aware of what has happened. Dave Clark said, "We do not really get time to think Maybe in a few years things will slow down and we will have a chance to think things over. We have been too busy selling our twelve and a half million records." They have no plans except to keep on with the same type records and other movies as long as possible. After that, Rick Huxley said, "We can't plan on anything. We'll spend what we want and save what we can. There is no way of telling what will happen." Their passive reaction is understandable yet not very satisfying. Mike Smith, the wit of the group, concluded the conference by fielding a few questions: "Who cuts your hair?" "I cut it myself." "What kind of food do you like?" "The eating type." And last of all, "What was your biggest influence?" "My mother." That evening at the concert, held at the Curtis Hickson Convention Center, the crowd was wild by the time the DCS came on. Three bands had done their best to work up the audience, and the police were having trouble keeping the fans down. The five idols came on stage and went through a series of their hits of which only a few strains could be heard above the din.

At this point he spins the special Comprehensives Wheel, which produces such combinations as "Pass two divisions but fail to integrate knowledge, 11 or "fail two but star on fencing team." The player who gets through a successful year first is the winner and wins an illustrated map of Longboat Key as a prize. This is a game that is perfect for all ages, if they are courageous enough to begin it in the first place. These wonderful gifts are available right now at the book store.

December 10, 1965 notes By KenJi Oda More About Record Clubs The November 5 Clef Notes column dealt with my thoughts on record clubs and was entitled 'Not All Record Clubs Save You Money.' In it, I concluded that, although some record clubs are real aids to the buying public, the several recording firm affiliated clubs aren't worth joining. Not long after the article was printed, I received a letter from Mr. Ernie Thomas, a Sarasota citizen. He wrote: .. I don't agree with your opinion on record clubs, though. I'm a member ofCapitol, Columbia, RCA Victor, and the Record Club of America. I agree that the Record Club of America saves the buyer the most, but the other company -clubs do save you money, and also you get a good idea of what is being recorded by different artists. Most of the lo-cal suppliers Oda have a very limited selection to choose from unless you are looking for the current popular teen hits The savings with Capitol Record Club are quite good in that you can get free six records for every seven you buy. (Each record) at $3. 98 plus postage usually comes to $4. 50. Thus, you get 13 records at a cost of $2. 42 each which is 65 per record or $8. 45 total savings from a local cost of $2. 98 plus tax. This is quite good, I would say .... The Capitol Record Club ad in December's Playboy offers seven records (out of 177 shown) at the bargain price of $1. 00, provided thatthe buyer purchase one record on the page at list price and seven more during the year. (Of course, these special offers are always changing; thus, the discrepancy with Mr. Thomas' figures.) After the buyer has fulfilled his obligations to purchase seven records, he is required to purchase a minimum of two records a year at list price; he receives in return one free record for every two he buys. Thus although the savings with the Capitol Record Club are as enticing as Mr. Thomas indicates for the first year, there is no savings thereafter. Two records at the club price of $4. SO will amount to $9. 00, just what it would cost to purchase three at the store. Thus, the free third record only serves to equalize things. When one considers that a member of the club must send a little card back to the organization each month if he does not wish the club's one "pick of the month," plus the fact that any club of this type has more limited selection than a good store, then the saving is dubious. The Columbia and RCA Victor clubs work in the same way. Both offer good initial savings but not much alter that. Contrast these clubs with such clubs as the Record Club of America, and my point is made all the more clearlv. There is an initial fee of $5 for JOining the Record Club of America. This fee gives the buyer membership for life. No other fees or dues are collected. From then on, the member is free to buy as many or as few records as he desires, when he wants them. All records are offered at a 38% discount from list, and a member may choose any record from the current Schwann Catalog (To the uninitiated, the Schwann Catalog is a listing of all long-playing records currently being produced. ) There are no quotas, no restrictions. Mr. Thomas mentions that the company-clubs give members "a good idea of what is being record ed." Well, the Record Club of America, like any other record club of any standing, publishes a period booklet of the best of the latest recordings. Besides, there are plenty of good music magazines around. So, it boils down to this: it would perhaps be most worthwhile to JOin a company-club for the "trial per iod;" but for a continuing savings, non-company clubs, such as the Record Club of America or the Citadel Record Club, are much the wiser to JOin.
