Volume II, Number 18 Published by Students of New College, Sarasota, Florida February 11, 1966 Writer Leaves; No Reason Told Mr. Mack Thomas, New College's first writer-in-residence, has left campus and apparently will not return. The Catalyst was unable to learn why Mr. Thomas left. According to President John Elmendorf, Mr. Thomas left "after certain misunderstandings with the administration." He said Tuesday that there were angles he was not at liberty to disclose at the mo ment. Mr. Thomas left Sab.lrday afternoon with Larry Rivers, whose term as a member of the faculty of the Fine Arts Institute was due to end this week. President Elmendorf stated that he had high regard for Mr. Thomas as a writer and as a person. He added that Mr. Thomas left "with very good feelings on the students." Students Asked To Poetr y Fest Students and faculty members of New College have been invited to the third annual Florida Poetry Festival, to be held March 11 and 12 at the University of South Florida, Tampa. Students from all Florida universities, colleges, and junior colleges have been invited. The festival will feature poetry workshops and readings. In addition to readings by participating students, Robert Lowell and Robert Wallace, eminent contemporary poets and scholars, will present readings of their own works. Awards will be given at the conclusion of the festival for the best i11 e .. d. vi the five cat egories: Poets' Workshop (original poetry), Oral Interpretation of Lyric Poetry, Oral Interpretation of Narrative Poetry, Readers' Theatre, and Choral Reading. A panel of three critics will present critiques at the end of each session of oral interpretation. Mrs. Patricia Drabik, drama in structor, hopes New College students will be interested in the festival. ShEo pointed out that students are welcome as observers just as muc..h as participants. Any student interested in giving a reading at the festival will have the opportunity of preparing under Mrs. Drabik's tutelage. Those interested should contact either Mrs. Drabik or Mrs. Elizabeth Heirnert in the Humanities office as soon as possible.

EC Studies Plans For More Structure At a special meeting Tuesday evening the Student Executive Committee heard recommendations for a more formal government structure. The recommendations were made by the Student Discipline Reform Committee, a sub-committee of the SEC formed to study problems in the theory and practice of student government at New College. In a lenghty report to the SEC, -th-at_a__;;cc..am_p_us_p_r_oc_t_o_r_b_e_hi_.r_e_d Ray Enslow, chairman of the Re-The members cfthe Reform Com-form Committee, listed four spe-rnittee are: Enslow, Mike Cassell, cific proposals for altering the dis-Chuck Hamilton, Paul Hansma, ciplinary and governmental system, Ted Shoemaker, and Tom Todd.

First, the committee came to the conclusion that Lies In Christianity Dr. Nathan A. Scott Jr. Professor of Theology and Literature at the Divinity School f the University of Chicago, told an audience of 150 students and guests that modern Christianity has the answers to the soulsearching of existentialist literature. Dr. Scott, a priest of the Episcopal Church and author of eleven books on the subject of religion and literature, was the first of six speakers in the third annual New Perspec tives series for students and the community. "Death," Dr. Scott stated, "is the pivotal point" of modem literary thought. Whereas man formerly believed death to be the beginning of after-life, the modern author's desacralized world view holds that existence in time is so significant as to render after-life and death itself insignificant. This is partly because "the surfaces of our lives are overpopulated with events." The Christian concept of time and eternity, however, noted in man1scitizenshipinheaven, "holds time together." In answer to a question Dr. Scott labelled the" death of God'' movement "absurd" and expressed bafflement at the murky prose of the movement's leaders. the attitude implicit in all past approaches to student discipline, i.e. that only a highly informal and structured disciplinary mechanism can deal fairly with problems of student behavior, is fallacious, and that only the introduction of a considerable degree of formality would make justice possible. Secondly, the committee has apparmtly come to the conclusion that students cannot be asked to serve as policemen among their peers. The proposed government system fContmuf'd on Council Considers Proctor Proposal lntervisitation Voted A Primary Function The College Council, in its regular meeting Wednesday, heard a proposal from the Student ExecUtive Committee that a man be hired to act as campus proctor. The Council took the proposal under consideration but did not act on it. After discussion of a separate item on the agenda, "The impact of the intervisitation rule on all aspects of the New College community, 11 the Council approved a motion by Vice-president Paul Davis that "establishment of (intervisitation) hours be considered a primary function of the College Council." The SEC proposal was presented by Ray Enslow who chairs a special Student Disciplinary Reform Com -mittee which formulated it. In a special meeting Tuesday the SEC approved, by a vote of 8-1, the committee's report for presentation to the College Council. It was stated in the meeting that defining intervisitation as a primary function does not represent a changein jurisdiction, but merely an assertion of the authority of the Council. Rules governing the Council define primary functions as involving "areas in which the responsibility for decision rests with the College Council. It is understood that all decisions of the College Council are implirnented by the chief executive officer .... The rules also term primary function "the settlement of issues involving some question of inter-community jurisdiction." No action was taken on a motion by Vice-president Davis to set intervisitation hours at 3-9 pm weekdays, 3 pm-1 am weekends, and 12-9 pm Sundays. Action was delayed by a motion made by Chuck Hamilton to allow the SEC to ascertain student opinion. Provisions of the SEC proposal are: 1) The proctor's duties "will be to patrol the campus full-time, at :ca:;t du..--ing the hours after dark, and to enforce such student regulations as he is instructed by the SEC, 2) that all violations of student regulation shall be reported by him directly and solely to the SEC (or to the DisciolinaiV Committee, or to both) which will then deal with all such according to the judicial and disciplinary pro cedures established by the SEC, 3) chat the SEC have at least an advisory voice in the hiring and dismissal of this person. Discussion which followed the presentation of the proposal ex pan-ded into general discussion of we implications of stude11t discipline and remedies for the lack or" it. Vice-president Davis said, "I don't think it should be the responsibility of students to enforce these rules at all. I think it should be a responsibility of the administration on page 2, column 5) Forum To Feature Four Short Films Tonight four film shorts will be presented atthe forum. One is the creation of Leslie Fuller, firstyear student from California. Leslie made her film in Los Angeles during the independent study period in addition to a study project on cinematography. "I did a paper for my project and made the movie for me," Leslie explained. "The other three films were made by some friends. They all run from seven to eight min utes." "My film has no title, 11 Leslie continued. "It was filmed in Grif fith Park, which is an observatory with a merry-go-round and a zoo." Leslie promised some comments on the rn eaning of the film at the forurn presentation. Leslie ana a te'Y other students have plans for making future films. "1 hope to shoot a film here some day," Leslie said. \f\ksleyan President Visits New College Dr. Victor .!:Sutterfield, President of Wesleyan University (Middletown, Conn. ) was a guest of College this week. At the invitation of President John Elmendorf and Dr. Nell Eurich, Chairman of the Educational Policy Committee of the Board of Trustees. Dr. Butterfield spent three days touring the campus and meeting the members of the college community. On Wednesday rooming Dr. BUt terfield met formally with a group of students and talked intensively with them about New College. That afternoon he was introduced to the faculty. His interest in New Colle )iCe stems from something more than pure curiosity. Although Wesleyan Uni versity is 130 years old and a basically traditional school, it has done a good deal of experimenting. According to Dr. Butterfield, there are colleges within the university employing some of the principles of this school. He believes the New College system will succeed. In noting the unrest w h i c h n o w pervades the campus, he commented: "I have found in speaking to students that there is a general tendency to talk first about what's wrong with New College. Students are often self and hyper-critical of the institution. However, upon dig ging deeper, I've jlso found that students realize how good an educ at i o n a 1 opportun1ty this place really affords. "There are assets here which are hard for students to appraise," he continued. "I think students who will stay by will realize that they got a very good education. 11 One facet of the educational process here which seemed especially to impress Dr. Butterfield is the faculty-student interaction outside the classroom. "The informal educational factor here seems very vital, he commented. Dr. Nathan A. Scott, Jr delivered the first lecture in the New Per spective Series last night. Future Perspectives lectures will be given by historian Crane Brinton and aesthetician Paul Weiss, both of Harvard University. Dr. VictorButterfield (right), Wesleyan University president, talks New College faculty members, among them Dr. Rollin Posey. A firm believer in the value of self-discipline, Dr. Butterfield also approved the administration's policy of leaving the cultivation of a student atmosphere mainly in student hands.


Page 2 Editorially Speaking Proctor Proposal Should Be Adopted It is obvious now that depending on students to discipline each other individually results in little observance of rules-especially in a community which judges behavior solely on the basis of whether someone is disturbed or whether svmeone complains instead of on the basis of whether rules are broken. It is this narrow interpretation of the Code of Consideration, this refusal to understand that infractions often have far reaching implications, that is responsible for the current situation of st,udent However, even though students are unwilling to accept individual responsibility for enforcing rules, this does not mean that collectively, as a body, they arc similarly incapable, or even unwilling. If responsibility for enforcing the laws of the student community is shifted from the shoulders of the individuals in that community to the far broader of the community as a whole through duly authorized "police" and "courts" then, and only then, will student enforcement of rules become a re:ility. The proposal made by the Student Disciplinary Reform Committee to the SEC, and then by the SEC to the College Council is a bid by the students to make this shift. It is a beginning manifestation of the realization that our original ideas and ideals about student discipline on an individual basis are impractical and unworkable at best and unsound at worst. But it is also an attempt to retain student control and responsibility in student discipline. We regard the hiring of a campus proctor, especially when coupled with the other major revisions of our system outlined in the report of the Disciplinary Reform Committee, as a serious and practical step in the evolution of student government on this campus. We only hope that the College Council and the president are able to share this conviction and overcome the practical obstacles to the implementation of this plan. The foregoing thoughts are expressed with an understanding that most of the students on this campus are happy to leave others alone as long as they are left alone. Most of us are able to work and live in the current environment because most of us do not engage in activities which affect others directly. However, some of us do engage in certain activities like flagrant violations of state liquor laws, which sufficient t o arouse the concern of the entire student c ommunity. It is n o t cnoug_h tha t most o f us, if n o t all of U.s, are pers.onally con ent to let those who want to drink exercise their choice. The fact that attention is attracted to 11improper11 behavior on the part of the students is sufficient reason for the student community to be willing to make and enforce rules. The most painless way is a campus proctor. No one IS naive enough to suggest that this meam.rre, if enacted, will, eliminate all discipline problems. these problems are vast and complex symptoms of flaws in the overall academic and social atmosphere, the introduction of an efficient police system will merely serve to suppress flagrantly "improper" behavior. But this is all any system can do. Attitudes and principles cannot be legislated. Our problems are ones of attitudes and principles. The Catalyst urges as strongly as it can that the specific proposal of the SEC as it was presented to the College Council be adopted and supported completely from all quarters. But we are also vitally interested in instigation of the other changes which the .Qisciplinary Reform Committee recomm ,ended to the SEC. These might do more than merely suppress symptoms--if they were accompanied by similar changes in. the other areas of the college. The Catalyst 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. February 11, 1966 To the Socially Timid From discussions at the College Council meeting and the SEC meeting which were held Wednesday, it seems that there is a substantial number of students here who are unhappy. "Many students" arc reported unhappy about the intervisitation regulations. 11A lot of people" are said to be disturbed by noise in the dorms to the extent that they cannot study. But these people have not made themselves heard in the right way. One student who appeared before the SEC to complain about the lack of action on "the noise problem 11 was asked why these unhappy and upset students have not used the proper student. government channels which arc provided for the purpose of col'fecting conditions which make people unhappy. His reply was that those who are disturbed are "socially tim id" and do not want to jeopardize their relationship with their peers by complaining. Yet various officers of the administration report a "significant" number of complaints about intervisitation. There are some on this campus--some students and some members of the administration--who, because of these complaints, whether they are significant or insignificant, are convinced that many students are unhappy with intervisitation, with noise, and so on. It has been pointed out that students who see fit to complain only to the administration may be merely making excuses for their own lack of work. If students, any students, whether they are one in number or fifty, are truly disturbed by intervisitation, by noise, or by anything that occurs in the residences, they should utilize the machinery for alleviating these conditions. Nothing has been done because no one has proven that there are more than a few complaints which cannot be taken as representative of the opinions of many students. So, to those ofyou who are "socially timid," we say speak up. Ifyouhave a legitimate complaint, make it, and make it loud but make it first to those of your peers who are charged to listen. Then, if they refuse to take action, complain to the administration or initiate a recall. We do not think, however, that this will be necessary. Letters to the Editor Council To whom it may concern, There is something inherent in recent action by the College Council which, as I see it, has tremendous import for each member of the New College student com ml.ll1ity. The action to which Irefer is tha t of February 9 which placed authority for making rules concerning intervisitation under the diction of the College Council. (During the course of this week's SEC meeting one member of the C:o ll e g e Council expressed die feeling that the CollegeCmmcil will indeed take advantage of such a perogative. The reason I consider such action to be important is because it signifies the faculty and administration have reached the consensus that a problem exists at New College and increased control is necessary because students are incapable of self-discipline. Prior to this time both groups had assumed the position of watchful waiting. Regardless of whether we consider s uch actio n t o be a:.lvisable on the part of the College Council (andrestriction of intervisitation appears to me to be an attack on symptoms rather than causes), it represents a point in the history of New College on which much of our future pivots. Once a precedent is set, there can no turning back. In many ways I feel the demands of the present situation are analogous with the position of a growing United States which found it could no longer remain isolationist in a mcdcrn world occupied by more than one central power. "I'll live my life; you live your life, and never the twain shall meet" was found to be, in a very real way, self-destructive. This is not to say that one country has the right to meddle in the affairs of another. This does mean, however, that it is to the benefit of all to be actively concerned with the welfare of each state--always being ready and willing to lend any assistance necessary to maintain harmony, but always existing with the knowledge that the well being of each co=try is affected by the failure of any one country to meet its responsibilities. U we, as students, do not determine what the problem is and how it should be met, someone erse will. The real pity of such a situation is that the only truly effective answer must come from the students be:::ause only the stuc:Ents know where the problem lies. Nothing worth while is simple, but I am convinced that the ineffable thing we call the New College Ideal is worth the effort of a united and concerned student body. (signed) Dale J-fickam (Continued from page one) to relieve students of this responsibility and let them devote their time to academics." He said later, "There is legitimate place for student government. Not so for a disciplinary committee. I think that can be done away with." President John Elmendorf, who chairs the co=cil, stated his tentative objection that the proposal would remove the idealistic element so completely that it would create "a cops and robbers kind of thing." He did say, however, that the proposal "will be considered." One problem presented by the proposal is that it involves questions of hiring new personnel or expanding the duties of present personnel and financial considerations. "It would admittedly be ideal, the proposal reads, "for the students to hire such a person (the proctor) themselves. The expense, however would be prohibitive. We rna/therefore hope that the administration will agree as to the necessity of this action, and will be more than willing to help the students handle more effectively their own disciplinary problems bt employing such a person." Evaluations Are Misused The Council will hold a special meeting before its next reSU:ar ,neeting in one month. Rema.ming items on the agenda wh1 ch were not discussed at Wednesday' s meeting will be taken up then as well as fwther consideration of the proposal and intervisitation problems. last w

February 11, 1966 The Catalyst Student Travels o Relieve Blues by Tom Manteuffel One of the symptoms, some say, of being human is wanting to go somewhere else. In this mood, Steve Waterman, 18, student from East Point, Georgia, did last weekend what half America's college population wants to do: he spent five days hitchhiking four thousand miles and visiting eleven campuses, including Geor gia Southern, Rinehart, Shorter, Georgia Tech, North Georgia, Van derbilt, Clemson, North Carolina State, St. Mary's Junior College (where he was smuggled into the girls' dorm in a duffel, the University of North Carolina, and Kentucky State. He found the students at first amazed, then impressed with New College. Unlike here, the stude.nt's dissatisfaction was directed mamly toward themselves (i. e. "I flunked biology last term"). Says Steve, "I think they all had the attitude that if they didn't like something about that school, they'd just transfer to another school; there's no use trying to change it. 11 Perhaps significantly, Steve he found many students prepanng to change their majors to law or medicine--or wishing they had done so--because that seemed to be where the money is. "I didn't hear anyone say, 1 I wish I had studied art so I coJld express myself a little bit more intelligently. 1 11 Totha;e students who want to try their hand (sorry) at hitchhiking, Steve offers the following tips. --On an expressway at night, many salesmen will want someone along who will keep --Truck drivers can't p1ck up nders because of insurance restricbut will always wave and rememberyourface if you meet at a truck stop. "There seems to be some language of the road that I don't yet quite understand; every professional driver thinks back to his lost youth, and wishes you luck." --South of Tampa it's very difficult to get a ride--especially in coat and tie. "They think you're some sort of con man," laughs Steve, Wear the uniform: weejuns, madras shorts and college sweatshirt. --Highway patrolmen are generally friendly. Steve was given rides three times by troopers. --If your driver stops in a large city it's better to be let out on the outskirts and await a through driver. The non-college student will want to know why Steve left; the answer, 1 think, escapes the stock sever-relations-with-society epithet. It's tied to the approaching exoduses of Mardi Gras and Sebring; but these are destinations. It's linked to the announcement of half-fare plane tickets to persoos twelve to twenty-one; but on a plane one goes from somewhere to somewhere. The important thing is not that Steve's trip was made on three dollars, but that the trip was made with no destination in mind. This is wanderlust in the abstract. The aim is not to go somewhere but to go anywhere; not to arrive but to move on. This indicates part of the nature of the weekend wanderer: he's dissatisfied with his previous surroundings. Steve's reason for going as he says was "to regain my faith in Waterman hwnanity. 11 He was dissatisfied with the lack of interdependence on campus and evidently went off to "the country" to find it. Steve did not, he says, go "to see the college kids mainly, but just to meet people." The Myth ofthe Noble Savage is c-elebrated enough in folk song and poem to become a permanent fixture in the Great American Dream. If however, the Richard Kimball is a search for identity it is misguided, rather I think it is a search for anonymity. It's a wholly relaxed environment everyone is a stranger and fnends are people one never saw before and won't see again. Stevetells of leaming something about respect for women from a fugitive convicted of manslaughter he stayed with briefly while hitchhiking last summer. Although on the run, the man faithfully sent meager pseudonymous money orders to a former fiancee. There are certainly things to be learned from "common people, not the least of which is that they are people and that they are not But the uniquely Amencan (and chiefly collegiate) trait of romanticizing poverty and identifying with its legions may betray a certain lack of reality in facing one's own problems. No one know this better than Steve. When asked if he could survive indefinitely on the move, he said, "If I had someone that I wanted to do things for at the time, I wouldn' t want to. I'd want some better for them. by myself,, I don' t know that I'd want to !ive like that ... but the education you get from hitchhiking (a week or so) you just can't get anywhere else.

According to Steve Hall, current chairman of the SEt, there is a strong possibility that a student meeting will be held explaining the reasoning behind any major changes made. At their regular weekly meeting on Wednesday, the SEC continued discussion of the proposal, specifically point #4, in view of the :>roceedings of the College Coun:il meeting held earlier. A decision was made to put out a questionnaire attempting to determine the extent of student dissatisfaction with present rules. In other decisions, the SEC appointed Karle Prendergast head of a Social Committee which will some relatively formal aspects of student social life, such as dances and other large group activities. Also, the SEC Y(ill put out a form asking suggestions for the third-year Great Issues program.

The left-wing directors, like Eisenstein, were concemed with technique, light-ing and editing, but Room, though obv'iously influenced by this group, is concerned more with characters and psychological study. The film's official theme, dlscouraging abortions, was why it was censored for so many years, yet one could scarcely say the film is about abortion, and the moralistic Pini is the weakest part of the film. The acting is skillful and subtle and conveys Room 1'S broader theme of man's selfishness to women with great precision. The fwnbling burlesque of the two men keeps the film far from the lofty impersonal social tragedies of Eisenstein. Yet because his editing is so fluid as to be almost unnoticeable and his theme less monumental though more universal, Room'; work must remain one of the Soviet cinema's minor masterpieces.

"They're getting closer, I said to myself, and thought nothing more about them. It was early, but I got up and dressed, putting on my boots and muffler and going into the darkened cowts. I realized something was amiss when I met the palm trees, marching in geometrical formation toward the reception center. I exchanged no words with them, however. The snow was de en but a large dog gave me a ride to the parking lot. On the way, we passed the construction site of the new motel, the Smoulderin:::; Palms. The dog let me off and, explaining that he had to attend an urgent meeting of the Investment Club, hurried away. There was an air of ominous calm over the campus. Even the screams were subdued and 6Eemed deadened by the snow. On my way to College Hall, I thought about the ice skating party we had had the night before, and wondered if they, too, had heard the drwns. I was served breakfast by two on loan from the Sarasota Jungle Gardens, and reflected that most of the manpower was being utilized elsewhere, possibly in the tanks. I breakfasted on cottage cheese and mushrooms with grape Kool-Aid, and went to the Music Room, which was unfortunately being used by the ghost of Charles Ringling to rehearse a new act involvin?; three trained elephants. I discussed with him the possibility of using the elephants, since we had Hannibal as a visiting professor, then went to my first class. There were twelve people in my class, six of whom I'd never seen before, and three gargoyles who were said to be only auditing. They made little contribution to the discussion, which involved the Mlchia vellian aspects of separating two eggs from the college to make a marginal omelet. I also received back a paper I had written for the class, but ignored the grade on it, since it did not exist. On the way out of class, I avoided the tent pitched in the living room by two tourists from Minnesota, who insisted all the motels in town were being used to lodge the troops. This was my only class of the day and, besides, it was obvious that I would be needed soon at the other campus. I could tell the drums were closer. On the way, I got lost and found myself in the Circus Hall of Fame. I was announced as a juggling act, but was unable to keep the music book and a French dieRIP VAN BOWLING Student Rates Before 6 P.M. 7007 Nolttt TrGII I!> \\iJb eoME )AAIDALS MP HANDBAGS sa 111 l.MEK )IAMoNDs toNcocnoAs tionary in the air at the same time. I was already late when I finally reached the dorms We were put through our inspection and drills, then told to man our stations. I was nervous, and tried to burn my student card, but there was too much of a draft. Soon, the drums seemed almost upon us and, looking out at the highw.ay, we could see them,marching in formation. We were being attacked by the Enemies of New College. I could see the commander of the enemy troop, Mackinley Kantor, a veteran of Andersojlville. We seemed poorly equipped, being armed only with copies of an advertising supplement to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Someone suggested surrenderinR: and to Bradenton, the friendly City. But the drum and bugle corps of the florida West Coast Symphony appeared for our side and gave us renewed hope, and we put up a spirited fight. We had set up a cunning trap for the enemy, flooding the area in front of the dorms and creating a muddy mess, virtually inpenetrable. Then we plummeted them with ancient oak trees and old copies of The Catalyst. The Enemies brought in reinforcements from Manatee Junior College, but a sizable number of the bearded beatniks defected to our side. We brought in the Friends of New College, but few of them would fight because they said it would be detrimental to business It looked as though we were getting the worst of the skirmish, until someone suggested we throw Physics for the Inquiring Mind at them. "It must be good for something, he said. This turned the tide, and the Enemies retreated. We had won the battle.
