Faculty Clarifies 'Marginal Student Volume II, Number 17 Published by Students of New College, Sarasota, Florida February 4, 1966 At a meeting held last Wednesday the f aculty decided t o publish a statement o f clarification of the school 1s policy toward student evaluations. In introduction to this statement, President John Elmendorf stated: The Catalyst Marks First Anniversary This week The Catalyst marks the first anniversacy of publication. The first issue appeared February S, 1965. In its first year the newspaper has evolved from mimeographed sheet to !.1:andard tabloid size printed commercially on high-speed pres-ses. The organizer and first editor was Laura Rawson (now Mrs Rick von Behren), who began the publication with a staff of five, a plea for help, and no name for the paper. A name for the paper was suggested by Mr. Palmer Bevis, who was then with Development, and adopted by the staff for the fourth edition. The name has been relained, but almost everything else has changed since that first edition. The Catalyst was mimeographed 1.01til the fourth edition of the current wear. At that time the arrival of the second class provided the added impetus necessary to take the second big !.1:ep in the development of the newspaper. The Catalvst now has offices in two rooms of the recently acqub-cd motel property after being temporarily housed in the barracks building. Reorganization of the staff, official election of editors, and appointment of staff heads was completed at a recent staff meeting. The Catalyst is published by twenty-one students who arc solely responsible for the operation of the paper. Boat Keys Missing Power Boat Rep a ired According to Peter Odell, athletic coordinator, all but one key to the sailboat lockers are missing. They should be returned to the Reception Center. The college's power boat is now being kept at Lowe's Marina on North Trail. Mr. Odell reports that the boat is under and will be out of use until notice. Right, the front page of the first edition of The Catalyst. Above, Associate Editor KenJ i Oda at work in the newspaper's new fHc-' Gallery To Present Art and Music Sun. The New College Gallery, which is an exhibit of the V(Orks of current members of the ew College Fine Arts Institute faculty and other modern artists, will provide entertainment at its Sunday afternoon showings. Beginning this Sunday, professlon md amateur musicians will play the gallery. According to Miss illy Lucke, Secretary of the_ Fine Arts Institute, jazz groups Wlll be contracted during the first few weeks. Other types of musical ensembles will be brought in when the demand arises. The music will last from 3-Spm. Admission is free. In addition. members of the Fine Arts faculty will be present. As Miss Lucke describes it, the program will be "a fun thing, an opportunity for good conversation, good music, painting, and a chance to meet professional artists, all in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. 11 Forum Will Discuss French Writers Tonight's Forum topic, "How Albert Camus Stayed Albert Camus in Spite of Jean-Paul Sartre," will be expounded upon by Mr. George Mahar. Last week, in the contro-versial forum in which Mr. Calvin Hoffman presented the Marlowe theory of the 11 Shakespearian'' plays, Mr. Mahardefended Shakespeare's honor a,nd authorship. Mr. Mahar teaches English at Venice High School at present, but his career has been active and varied. He has been a ooss machinist on a submarine, master plumber, actor, anadirectorasweu as teacher. In his spare time he writes plays, "mostly for my students." In Sarasota he taught English and dramatics at Sarasota High School and directed the Sailor Circus "when they ran out of people who knew anything about a circus." He has also acted with the Asolo Theatre Festival, directed plays for the Venice Little Theatre, and taught American on ion WEDO TV, He finds teaching his favorite career though, and "can't see why anyone would want to do anyding else if he can afford it. noanuscripts of which ht donated to New College); a discussion of art by Mr. Larry Rivers, artist now at the Fine Arts Institute in Sarasota; an evening of discussion and of folk songs by Mr. Eric von Schmidt; and the showing of four ex:perimental film shorts by Lesli e Fuller, first-year student and creator of one of the films. Dates for these forums have not been scheduled. "The faculty discussed at some length the prevalence of con-? ? ? ? ? ? ?

We welcome anyone's contributions. we need help with reporting, typing and running a mimeograph machine.

THE STAFF DR. TOYNBE!l: A PERSONAL GLIMPSE I had spoken to Dr. Toynbee the previous day, and he had gra agreed to an interview. Thus it was that on Wednesday afternoon I found myself sitting in the room of the noted historian who will remain in residence at New College until late March. Besides the lectures for the New College students, Or. Toynbee is giving college-arranged lectures for the general public. In addition, he conducts the history seminar and follow-up sessions for the student lectures. (continued on Page 2) CAPT. STYLES ANNOUNCES FURNITURE HAS ARRIVED In an interview Capt. Ralph Styles, campu& planning coordinator, it was learned that almost all of the residence hall fur ia here and be1ng stored. Much of it is especially made and some designed for New College. The carpeting comes in four colors, turquoise, blue, yel low, and qold, all tweed-like with contrasting colors. The drapes and bedspreads are of complimentary colors. The furniture is of modern design. One interesting p1ece 18 the coffee table, wh1ch has a chess board inlaid 1n the top. The lamps Yere specially designed by a lighting fixture com pany and the combination desk and dresser waa designed by Mr. Pei. The beds will be longer than the usual twin bed, 36" x 81". There w1ll be one set of shelving w1th three shelves of four feet each. The quest1onnaires which were answered by students last fall have had qu1te a lot to do with the selection of furniture, etc. In a conference w1th the contractors, captain Styles was told that 12 rooms would be ready for furniture the last week in February. These will be carpeted, draped and furnished and students in&talled within three or four day& (continued on Paqe 2) College Will Make Danforth Nominations New College was recently notified that it is eligible to nominate students for Danforth Graduate Fellowships The first nominations will be made next fall. The grants, made possible by the Danforth Foundation, enable the Students cannot apply directly; they must be nominated by the college. Two of the New College faculty are Danforth Fellows: Dr. Douglas C. Berggren, who has served on the screening committee, and Dr B. Gresham Riley. fusion in the New College community, with specific reference to the question of efforts being made to determine the levels of achieve-ment and progress of the students. It was evident that certain misunderstandings exist. In order to reduce this confusion, the following, statenient was pr2pared. 11 The faculty's statement reads as follows: "The purpose of a system of term evaluations is to provide internal guidelines to assist students and faculty to appraise student performance. These evaluations will serve to warn students of the dangers of failure on examinations. Their only external use would be as one basis for letters of recommendation to transfer colleges or graduate schools. The evaluations on the comprehensive examinations, Independent Study PrOjects qualifying examinations, and final language competency are the measures of a student' s stanmng and progress toward graduation on schedule. Academic good standing is automatically achieved by satisfactory performance on the examinations and Independent Study Projects. Only when a !.1:u dent loses good standing will his status be reviewed by a faculty committee, which will include the student's total record, including examinations, study projects, term evaluations, and reports from the Dean of Students. Actio n by this committee may result in :i. recommendation for dismissal. 11 College Publishes Tribune will contain an eight-page tabloid section devoted to New College. Paid for by the school, the section is designed to extend and improve relations between New College and the surrounding com munitf. Comprising the tabloid will be o.rticles by President John Elmendorf; Vice President Paul Davis; Dr Nell P. Eurich, Olairman, Educational Policy Committee oi the Board of Trustees; Dr. Arthur Borden, Dean of Humanities, Sal ly Glendinning, HeraldTribtme reporter; and two New College students, Tom Manteuffel and Tom Todd. New Teacher Is Happy With New College ford as a Rhodes scholar, and received his doctorate from Columbia University. Prior to his years Dr. Riley Dr. Berggren w umer.> to obtain their doctorates anywhere in the United States. Those to whom the good for up to five years, are awarded must plan to teach in college. The applications of the two New College nominees and those of several thousandotherstudentswill be reviewed by a. screeming committee. Approximately one hundred grants will be awarded. These Danforth Grants rank with those of the Fulbright and Woodrow Wilson foundations; New College is one of the few new institutions allowed to make nominations. Dr. Jerome Himelhoch, the most recent addition to the faculty, is optimistic about the future of New College, despite expressions of concern by faculty members over stu dent attitudes and counter-expres sions by students. 11 I think any school which sets very high ideals and which takes on certain aspects of a utopian community, as New College has done, will disillusion some people," he explained. "In such a place as this, students are bound to be somewhat disappointed and critical. 11 Dr. Himelhoch is the new Profes sor of Sociology; his seminars this term include "Major Social Prob lems'' and 11 History of Sociological Theory." For the past seven years he has taught at Goddard College,. a small liberal arts school in V er mont that resembles New College in several respects. "New College appears to have some of the experimental approach characteristic of Goddard, said Dr. Him e l hoc h in comparing the schools, "but here there is a strong emphasis on scholarly achievement. Students at Goddard are interested more in artistic expression, political activity, and the search for their se if-identities and not nearly so interested in achieving a general mastery of the disciplines. Dr. Himelhoch with Goddard, he taught at Brandeis University, Brooklyn College, and New York University. Among the reasons Dr. Himelhoch listed for coming here were the desire for a new environment and "a benign climate. 11 Also, he feels the community is an exciting place to live. The main attractior was, of course, the college itself. "I was very interested by the philosophy of the school and in the exceptional quality of the students," he said. "One of the things that attracted me was the lack of a competitive system. 11 Tentative plans for future forums include: lectures by Mr. Alden Hatch, author of several books on the Ringling family fthe original Mr. Calvin Hoffman, left, addresses students in College Hall on whether Marlowe or Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare. While at Goddard, Dr. Himelhoch headed the Vermont Youth Study, a study of rural and small-city adolescents which was sponsored by the Ford Foundation and the National Institute of Mentall-Iealth. In addition, he wa' founder and first editor of Social Problems, the official JOurnal ot the Society "for the Study of Social Problems. Dr. Himelhoch

Page 2 Editorially Speaking Struc t re Inev itable Is Slowly, irrevocably, inevitably, whether we like it or whether we admit it, structure is being introduced into the structure-vacuum of New College. Academic and social structuralization and formalization increase each week. They are evident in "compulsory'' lab attendance, in student disciplinary procedures now in existence, and in the pressure being exerted for better discipline. All of these things represent a departure from that nebulous thing called the ew College Ideal as it is and has been commonly pro mulgated on this campus. Some people greet this graduai change with apparent horror. They are fond of crying that they are being betrayed and that New College is not living up to its promises. Before we succumb to this all too easy reaction, let us examine the facts. We may decide that a reaction of horror is justified or we may decide that the introduction of structure is only the logical consequence of New College history. Increased academic structure comes from the undeniable fact that the majority of students is not working to capacity. So much has been said about lack of student participation that it has become trite. Students are not the betrayed in this situation, they are the betrayers. We are, after all, supposed to be very highly motivated--selfmotivated. The structured student disciplinary functions which now exist, exist because we discovered very quickly that it is absurd to ask a group of one hundred or two hundred to live in close quarters without some guidelines for behavior. Pres sure has come to improve and increase adherence to these rules because we have learned that our more or less informal system is insufficient. Students can try again on their own in the near future for what Jllay be the last time before they are relieved of the responsibility. The facts are that academiC activ1ties are not cons1stent with the projected academic activities published in admissions propaganda; and that behavior problems have made a communitywith an atmosphere of a community of scholars impossible. These facts arise from the lack of structure. We are learning that and we are now engaged in the slow process of structuring our activities to correct it. In that this reflects a deviation and a compromising of the New College Ideal, complaints are justified. But there are two sides to the question. The faculty and administration are not ben:iving towa t em a they thought we woul This question of increasing structure is a much broader and long-range problem than we can deal with in a short time. The Catalyst will endeavor to point out and define the problems and implications of this trend in future issues. We cannot, however, speak for the entire student body. Students have an opportunity NOW to see to it that this inevitable structure does not become too highly constrictive and restraining. There is only one way for them to do this: they must make themselves heard and their opinions and wishes known. We understand that at the last faculty meeting the complaint was voiced that the faculty actually does not know what the students want. Why not tell them. The Catalyst can serve this function. It will if students take advantage of it. College Examiner Sets Flying Firsts Dr. John French, College Examiner, Wednesday became the first member of the Sarasota Collegiate Flying Club to make a cross-country trip. He flew roundtrip from Sar asot a Municipal Airport to Orlando. Dr. French "The trip is referred to as cross-country' not because I flew across the US., Dr. French, II but because I flew from airport to airport over an area of land." Previous trips involved going up from the airport and then, after petforming maneuvers, coming back down. Dr. French was also the first clubmember (and so far the only one) to fly solo. "Flying is in one sense much like swimming, 11 said Dr. French. "They say that swimmers use every muscle in their bodies, well, to fly, you have to use every brain in yov head. Despite these headaches, Dr. French is enthusiastic about flying: "It's quite a lot of fun. I look forward tremendously to each flight." Othermembersof the flying club include Dr. Rollin Posey, Chairman of the Social Sciences Division; Mr. Sam Black, history tutor; Mr. Peter Odell, Athletics Co o r din at or; Mr. Furman Arthur, Public Relations Officer; and several New College students. The group's instructor is Dave Whitman. The Catalyst Letters to the Editor Letters submitted with the writer's signature will be considered for publication. Names will be withheld upon request. Letters will not be returned and are subject to editing. An Open Letter to the College Community: It seems that some major points of clarification are in order with respect to President Elmendorf's remarks regarding the departure of Pat Tarr from New College. Mr. Tarr'sstatement also seems to demand certain amplifications. Regarding the former, though Mr. Tarr may indeed have been a student of great promise few if any students saw evidence of his intellectual potential, likewise every student at New College is a person "of great promise. Therefore, every student who has chosen to leave the school in the past has been one of great promise, and in large measure, departed students have been concerned, enlightened, exciting and creative individuals. Mr. Tarr noted his disenchantment with the school's academic atmosphere or lack thereof. This condition if not peculiar to Ne w College (if it in fact exists at all, to wit, spirited mealtime studentfaculty discussions, etc. ) and he will no doubt find that other institutions also lack the idealistic academic atmosphere portrayed in entrance His next point gave a personal definition of freedom, which is "partly the responsibility of adhering to certain rules. 11 Historian Herbert Muller, on the other hand, in his work Freedom in the Ancient World, notes 111 mean by freedom a sta in whic a person may de cide for himself what is right and good, what to do with his freedom, what kind of self to become. 11 This last point certainly presents in a very succinct fashion, the New College ideal of freedom, in both the academic and social realms. In conj unctiou with social freedom at New College, it is unquestionably true that the freewheeling life in the dormitories has often proven to be irresponsible. Yet a general mandate handed down to studentsfrom on high guarding social actions, seems hardly the manner in which to implement and improve the so.:hool's of freedom. Primary responsibility for the wox:kability of New College's so cialsystemrestsupon each student. Guidelines for conduct as expressed in the Code of Consideration, require that any students whose rights are violated, must notify the offending party of such a violation first. If the violation continues, student committees handling disciplinary problems may be consulted. (Effectiveness of such student committees may be examined at another time. ) Points four chrough ten of Mr. Tarr's statement concern personal considerations, on which I have no comments. His concluding re-He went on to explain that the method of flying usually involves doing the opposite of what one would expect. The steering wheel, for example, is not used to steer; the way to gain altitude is not to adjust the elevators but to apply power; the speed is adjusted not by applying power but by adjusting the elevators; etc. Charles Raeburn, right, presents $40 to Mike Neuschatz, winner of The Catalyst's literary contest. Glenda Cimmo, second from right, received $20 for second place; and Luke Salisbury received $10 for third. February 4, 1966 t WHY YES, I AM FAIRLY HEAVILY LOADED THIS TERM. marks, however, point out the most serious fault in his case. He notes, "In one way I am sorry for leaving because I have failed the college to a certain degree, and this acknowledgment provides the key to any rebuttal. In his stay at New College, ?llr. Tarr wrote no letters to the editor, nor made any public statements of constructive criticism regarding the academic or social struct:uoo of the college. Departure from the school may prove a solution to his personal feelings of college inadequacy, yet this provides no solution for college problems vf social and academic laxity. It would seem that Mr. Tarr would be more justified in his evaluations if he had tried to correct those faults of the college which he found unacceptable, rather than deserting the scene without such an attempt. 'fo l lOSe of Machiavellianintentions, these lines from The Prince are addressed. "May I trust, therefore, that your Highness will accept this little gift in the spirit in which it is offered ... 11 11 whoever becomes the ruler of a free city and does not destroy it, can expect to be destroyed by it, for it can always find a motive forrebellioninthe name of liberty and of its ancient usages, which are forgotten neither by lapse of time nor by benefits received 11 To the Editor: Signed Charles F.

If one-third of these bright young scholars are girls, there won't be room for them in the girls court. Most of the rooms are now being used, and it's not likelythat the present occupants are anxious to see their balconies converted into spare bedrooms. The sheer physical fact of the matter is that girls are going to have to live in Court Three--with the boys--and t'tis obvious necessity has been confirmed by Mike Mather.

February 4, 1966 The Catalyst Missionary Trio Visits Sarasota on cam us with Laurie Paulso11 by Tom Manteuffel Floating primly at the end of a plush row of yachts with names such as "Gung-Ho, "Anna H., 11 and "Wee-One," the fifty-four foot trimaran named "The Crusader" belies its nature, Only the botoneed cross on the sai 1. the Sal! man Head of Christ on the galley wall, and the official church literature strewn about hmt that this boa t is a floating mission to the Indians and Negroes of the Caribbean and West Indies. Skipper of the boat is the Rev. Bill Dunklin, 49, a graying, selfeffacing man whohas worked with Holiday Inn lor at least another week, andDunklin emphasizesthat VISitors are welcome. A reformed alcoholic, Rev. Dunklin is unshakably sure that God is gu_iding his life. He casually descnbes premonitions andnear-miracles, one of which is "The Crusader" itself, which he designed and built with no previous experience. The boat now serves as living quarters for the four aries. Serving as guide during Frank and Emile's frequent visits to the campus are first-year students Denby Barnett and Steve Waterman. From the Middle of Winter More dreams, finally, in case we'd forgotten what they're like. Keeping Hamilton Court, and all the wonders we'll find there, through months of noise and dust and big trucks and men working thinking maybe we can use it as sub s tit u te dream for all the ones we've already discardde, letting it come together with the ones we still have, and maybe if we watch and water them, they'll mature together like savings bonds .. Paulson How marvelous to wake up and gaze outside your window at those palm trees whipping in the breeze from the sea, dress, step outside, and find the temperature is 35. This is not the Florida they told me about, the Florida all those people from Michigan visiting the Circus Hall of Fame came to see. What about it, Sunshine State? Quit goofing off. Get with it. Sure I brought clothes to be donned in layers, but I want to be able to walk, too ... just a little, run ofthe mill garden variety, but a gigantic brown spider. ln back of the desk. And I am not, absolutely not, going to pick it up by the leg and dump it outside. I'm sorry. Go and borrow some blljl; spray_, and spray it until it's white and it looks like it snowed on it and it turns over and dies, right on the rug. Returning the spray, he asks: "You saved the spider's life, didn't you?" But y_oucan't saye the life of ;. giganuc brownsp1der that's sitting right smack on top of your aesthetics book .... A dark road, trees, and above stars shining very clearly through: Not only this, but the sound, and blossoms, quietly runmng things, the moon on its side, lazily, resting .. To get up for an 8 o'clock class is dark and cold and unreal because there's no sun and at College Hall people are eating something that looks like eggs and drinking somethingthat tastes like orange KoolAid, and then they go and tell you about art and music, and all I'm about to integrate, believe me, is lunch ... And so Independent Study projects are in, and the only decent substitute for despair is February. Visit the new bookstore and carry the Physics book home, Break the ice in the swimming pool.

Frank Lary Photo Club Sets Dues New College's Photography Club has set its membership dues at $5 for this term, announced Frank Lary, its president. The money will go toward the purchase of supplies. The advantage of buying photo suppLes through the club is that they can be purchased in bulk, lowering the prices. The club's supplies and equipment will be available to all members of the club. At present, the club is using a darkroom in the Natural Science Lab. This darkroom does not currently meet the demands of the stude?ts (In Frank Lary's words, "It st1nks, there's no ventilation, and there's no hot water."), and a new darkroom has been planned for the proposed science annex.

Page 4 Films Experiment With Audience,Too "Experimental" films experiment not only with techniques and subject, but with the audience. When the triiditional purposes and forms offilm-making are abandoned, you have to learn to "re-see" a movie, always to be aware of the unique way the artist is himself viewing things and to realize that the aud-i e n c e is often completely ignored. As one seldom knows just what the ar tist intends, the demands made on the audience n e c e s s i tate. a g r e at deal o( tolerance. The following com ments, generalPini ly by the artists themselves are Ifresented that you might have some basis for your reactions and judgments. The first film, Blue Moses (1963) by Stan Brakhage, dealS with just this audience-artist relationship. In the words of Michael McClure it is "A 'meat enigma' spoken in. eternal language of director, con man, and magician a molecule of revelation in the shape of a dramathrownoffbythe artist .. In speaking of the next film, Sirus Remembered (1962), Br3.khage himself says, "I was coming to terms with decay of a dead thing and the decay of the memories of a loved being that had died and it was undermining all abstract con cepts of death. The form was being cast out of probably the same physical need that makes dogs dance and howl in rhythm around 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 By David Pini 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 fied fucamer a wakes, goes out in the night seeking 1 a light' and is drawn through the needles eye.

The Catalyst The 69ers in action February 4, t966 69ers Take Offensive Win First Moral Victory By Philly's David Bunning ln a tension and dispute nacreu contest Monday, the new New College 69ers posted a thrilling 82 to 61 defeat. Playing against league leading Edward's Barber Shop five, the 69ers demonstrated a renewed offensive effort that includes an intricate box weave out front. This offense is distinguished from the basKet weave formation which sees the forward breaking across center in a difficult fraggle step. For the first time this year, the 69ers unveiled a tenacious man-to-man defense which saw John Cranor guarding league scoring leading Tim Eisnaugle who has been called the greatest basketball player in history. Great or not, Cranor held the big center to a mere 29 points in a superb defensive effort. Not enough can be said for Eisnaugle; so confident was he in his and his teammates' ability that he even scored a basket for New College. worse for his little encounter, chipped in 13 Defensive star John Cranor was equally effective on offense hitting 67% from the field and seven points. George Finkle, apparently completely recovered from a bout with that dread social disease mononucleosis, scored six. Craig Bowman, usually a mainstay in the 69er offense exibited the crippling effects of a night-long endeavor in paper writing. Following the custom set last week, the 69ers allowed their opponents to select a Most Valuable Player. Larry Alexander was the overwhelming choice.

The broken tree served briefly_ as a stage for a few students who After a poor first half, the wondrous 69ers trailed by 21 points--41 to 20. The second half, however, was a different story as the NC cagers scored a fantastic--for the 69ers--41 points. While this total is the highest one-half pertormance of the year it is still better than the 69ers have done in an entire game, on occasion. In the third quarter, the crowd witnessed an extra treat as Pete Odell walked into a door after being fouled. Neither Pete nor the door was e jected from the game, however. Then later in the game, a model United Nations meeting took place on the floor while 69ers Bowman and Cranor chatted amiably on the sidelines.
