lntervisitation To Begin Published by Students of New College, Sarasota, Florida July 8, 1966 Volume II, Number 39 "'1'1 President Elmendorf yesterday set 7 am as th New College Does What Others Say Ought To Be Done "We are doing a lot of things everybody else says ought to be done but can't do because of various restraints," President John Elmendorf told The Catalyst yesterday. He said this became apparent during the Danforth Foundation Workshop Second-year student John Cranor and first-year student Cheryl Hess appear absorbed in the intricacies of the ballot on constitutional revision and the adoption of a "bill of rights." for intervisitation. C Enforcement of the recently revised rules will begin tonight. Elmendorf told The Catalyst the new hours, as set by the administration, had actually gone into effect Tuesday. No official Students Ratify Revisions, Rights Studentsratifiedthe constitutional revisions and the Bill of Rights Wednesday in an "overwhelming" vote, according to Supervisory Committee chairman Kenji Oda. Oda, in reporting preliminary results to the Student Executive Committee after the polls closed, termed the vote "so overwhelming there is no doubt. 11 The final tally listed 104 votes for accepting all the proposed revisions and lll votes for all the articles of the B i 11 of Rights. There were othervotessplit among the various articles on both sections of the ballot. Only two students voted against both the entire constitutional revision and the Bill of Rights. They will not be retroactive, however. Necessary changes in the SEC's modes of procedure will be made shortly, pending a report by the Constitution Study Committee to the SEC. The report is scheduled for Wednesday. notification was published by the administration, however, and there was some confusion during the week about the ending time. Calling the subject of intervisitation, and especially the question of a morning hour, ''boring, Elmendorf and Dean of Students Robert Norwine agreed tole ave the beginning time unchanged. Proctor Arthur Ohmes said last night he had been told by Disciplinary Committee chairman Bill Chadwick to begin enforcing the new hours tonight. Intervisitation will end at 1 am tonight because of the weekend. Beginning Sunday intervisitation will terminate at ll am on weeknights. Elmendorf said notification of the official beginning of the earlier hours was not forthcoming before Tuesday because he had been out of town. He cited, however, his earlier statement saying intervisi tation would begin "no later" than July 5. Afavorablevoteby a majority of all students was necessary for passage. The fewest favorable votes required for such a majority was approximately 75. A total of 125 ballots were cast. According to the SEC the changes will go into effect immediately. Room ( 'heck May Begin During Exams, Miller Says in Liberal Arts at Colorado Springs, Colo., which was attended by dele gati:>ns from twenty liberal arts colleges in the United States and Japan. The workshop, which ended Wednesday, consisted of seminars whichprovided the participants "a chance to talk about what's new and exciting in education," Elmendorf explainPd, "<>nd wh<>t 11ew schools could learn from old schools and vice versa. John s o n A ppoi n t s Study Committee Assistant Dean Arthur Miller told the Student Executive Committee Wednesday end of the year room checkout "preswnably" may have to begin during exams. He said the check would "maybe" begin Friday, July 29, at the end of exam week. Miller read the committee a statement written by Claude Schutter, of the Planning Office, defining "normal wear and tear" to rooms for which students will not be charged. Miller said the guidelines are virtually the same as those used last year. to move before that time in special cases. In separate disOlSsion Miller told the committee parking regulations are "supposedly" being enforced. He said they also apply to motorcycles. Cycles and scooters parked on the highway side of the dorms or on the south side are being reported, Miller added. He said the proper parking place for the vehicles is in the bicycle parking area. Ten of the schools represented were relatively new schools, while the remaining ten were relatively established colleges, some of them members of large universities. "We're way, way out in left field," Elmendorf said in comparing New College to the other schools. Dr. John French, College Examiner and one of the conference delegates, said New College "seemed" to him to arouse the most interest of the schools represented. Among the topics discussed were methods of examination and eval-French Elmendorf uation and student counseling systems. The nature of comprehensive examinations and their distinction from end-of-course exams was the subject of extensive debate, French said. Also, he said, there were discussions of how the counseling system here could be improved. He said some faculty members who are poor counselors might be excusedinthefuturefrom counseling duties. Other suggestions for improvement include more careful assignment of faculty advisors to students and the institution of periodic counseling sessions for all students. French added New College has an advantage over other schools in that it is able to change far more easily than other schools. Most other schools are tied to some sort oftradition which makes extensive change difficult, he said. Members of the New College delegation were: French; Dr. Peter Buri, chairman of the natural sciences; Dr. Arthur Borden, chair man of the humanities; and Dr. Rollin Posey, chairman of the social sciences. Elmendorf attended part of the conference as an auditor. President Lyndon Johnson Saturday named a 20-member committee to conduct a thorough study of the selective service system and make recommendations to him by January 1 for its reform. This action came just two days after the Defense Department released a report of a similar study ordered by President Johnson in 1964 and completed in 1965. The Pentagon report suggested a nwnber of changes in present draft practices, including taking 19 and 20-year-olds first instead of those approaching the cut-off age of 26, but some members of Congress complained the study 1 eft some problems unsolved. No idea, including a possible draft lottery and national service by women in nonmilitary fields, will be e xc 1 ud e d from the new committee's area of study, Press Secretary Bill D. Moyers said. Johnson named Burke Marshall, fonner assistant attorney general in charge of the civil rights division of the Justice Department, to head the group, to be known as the National Advisory Commission on Selective Service. Members of the commission are predominantly educators and business executives, but the list includes a priest, a judge, social scientists, public service workers, former armed forces officers, and the former director of the Central In te lligen c e Agency, John A. McCone. Chairman Marshall is presently general counsel and vice president of International Business Machines. The Pentaeon's study indicated little hope for the possibility of eliminating the draft for at least a decade. Also, according to the report increased pay and fringe benefits would have a surprisingly small effect on the volunteer rate. Basis for this conclusion is a recent survey of military-age youths, 4 per cent of whom said they would enlist if military pay were brought up to civilian levels. The main finding of the report, however, was that both civilians and combat commanders prefer draftees of around 19 and 20 years of age. power pool for one year at the expiration of the deferment. In all cases, if a person were not drafted within one year of the time he was placed on high priority, he would be shifted to the bottom of the pool. Brit ish Diplomat To Speak Thursday A 35-year veteran of the British Foreign Service will speak Thursday after dinner at College Hall. Lyndon Clough, a long-time friend of President Elmendorf, has agreed to come to Sarasota to speak about Nepal and its relationship to contemporary culture. Cough has been stationed in the tiny Asian nation for the past five years. The talk, open to the general public, will begin at 7 pm in the Music J;toom. Elmendorf indicated Clough would "probably" bring slides and use them in his presentation. House Committee chairman Steve Waterman will publish, in conjunction with Planning Officer RalphStyles, an information sheet about the room check and chargeable damages. The check will be by a member of the buildings and grounds crew and a member of the student gov ernment. They may operate in two teams to speed up the process. Miller said students will be requested not to begin moving to different rooms until noon on Saturday, July 30. He indicated, however, students may be granted permission SEC chairman Steve Hall reported a list from which the orientation committee will be selected had been compiled and the committee should be named shortly. Proxies at the meeting were Mike Cassell for Ray Enslow, Leo Peruzzi for Karle Prendergast and David Pini for David Allen. All other members were present. DANCE TONIGHT Forma l Dance 8 : 30 -11 Buffet -11 Informal Dance 12-2 Bus Service To Dance 8:15,10:45 Bus Service From Dance -2 am Art Audion Some one hundred blQck-andwhite art prints will be auctioned to members of the college community Wednesday at6:30 pm in the Music Room of College Hall. The prints were given to the college by Dr. Fred Licht, professor of art history here last year. Proceeds of the auction will go to the library. According to Dr. Corinne Wilson, librarian, the Dutch auction system will be used. Under this system, a base price is set for each article to be bid upon and an alarm clock is set for a secret length of time prior to each bidding. The Pentagon suggested the present de ferment sc he dul ebe preserved for the most part, but that all eligible men be available for one year sometime b e t we en the ages 19 and 34. Under such a plan, youths would be high priority at probably the age of 19. Those who go to college or use some other temporary deferment would be placed in the man-At Concer t' s End Each time a person bids he must pay the difference between his bid and the previous one (or the base price), whether he wins or not. The highest bidder at the moment the alarm goes off wins the article being bidded on and pays the bid differences he has incurred plus the base price. Paul Wolfe signals the Summer Music Festival Chamber Orchestra t o rise and share in the enthusiastic applause of the audience. The musicians were given a standing ovation at the conclusion of Sunday's faculty concert, the seventh and last of the series.


Pa e 2 Editorials Worse Than Cotton We note with alarm the apparently increasing frequency with which the phrase "Black Power" is being thrown about by some militant Negro "leaders." This week's papers and news magazines have carried reports of this rising tide in the heretofore non-violent movement for Negro equality before the law. Now these few aggressi ves have decided they are no longer satisfied withMartin Luther King's goals (which are primarily integration), but want Black Power instead. They say this Negro political ascendency can be achieved by Negro majority electorates. Where Negroes are, in fact, the majority of voters, they are right. Obviously, however, those few places where this condition exists are the only ones with an immediate opportunity for Black Power. Stokely Carmichael, national chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and his organization are responsible, according to the reports, for most of the Black Power agitation. The potential results of their angry cries are directly contradictory to the name of their organization. Negro leaders in cities across the country are proclaiming this will be a "long hot summer." It may turn into a summer filled with fatal violence if cries of Black Power persist. If violence, whether ghetto riots or whistle stop slugfests, is prompted by m i lit an c y on the part of a few Negro leaders then Black Power will have done more to hold the Negro in bondage than cotton ever did. Your Prints May Turn Into A Frog Letters Disappointed To the Editor: Catalyst since its birth and have enjoyed its growth. Congratulations on your Honor rating. Wehavebeenreading The "Long May It Wave, 11 should be invited to College Hall. The Flag is not flying on the College pole. We view the upcoming "Dutch auction" of some one hundred art prints at College Hall with a great deal of amusement and curiosity. The stage is set for an evening of tongue-in-cheek festivity, but the auctioneer may find it a bit difficult to "warm up" bidders. The Dutch method will serve to raise prices by encouraging many intermediate bids between base .price a_nd the final bid, as payment of the fmal pnce w1ll sp read out amo n g the various bidders. More importantly, however, it will make winning the irints secondary t o en J Oying t h e b idding. Trying to guess when the alarm will go off and making bids accordingly should impart a game atmosphere to the proceedings. Once bidding competition begins, it would be to the bidders' advantage to go a few pennies higher in the hopes of being "on top" when the alarm rings, but the auctioneer's JOb wiH be to see that bidders get "in the spirit and spend those first few precious nickels and dimes. If anybody can do it, President Elmendorf will. If all goes well, the auctio n sh ould prove to be a lot of relatively inexpensive fun f o r all. Guest Editoriat Disappointed, (signed) Irene Bon Seigneur July 4, 1966 Editor's note: Mrs. Bon Seigneur and her husband are the college's nearest neighbors. (They live just north of College Hall.) The college flag pole was given by them. He is an officer of the Friends of New College. "Long May It Wave" to which Mrs. Bon Seigneur refers is, according to a clipping she enclosed in her letter from Monday's edition of The Sarasota HeraldTribune, a 22-minute film producedby W. T. Robarts, of Sarasota, about flags which have flown overthe United States. The film was first shown, according to the article, Tuesday to the Sarasota Rotary Club. Don't Spoil The Pudding OLD GLORY--not there on the 4th The Business Office told The Catalyst yesterday the flag was sup posed to have been raisen for the matinees. All seats are reserved, and ticket order.. should be directed to the Asolo Theater box office. College Council Will Consider Orientation The Co 11 e g e CoWlcil will not meet at its usual time Wednesday because of a faculty meeting, President John Elmendorf said yesterday. It will, he said, meet sometime during the week, however. Elmendorf said the council would probably meet with the orientation committee and discuss orientation primarily.

July 8, 1966 The Catal st Pa e 3 Ballet: It All Started For Fun Films Ordered It all started when a group of coeds tried to start a modern dance class for "fun and exercise. Now, overayearlater, theco-eds are enthusiastic participants in formal ballet classes conducted twice weekly by Jean Spear, a leading exponent of the Cecchetti Method (Imperial Society of London, England) of training dancers. Five students here attend the sessions regularly, and a number of others are occasional participants intheprogram. One faculty wife, Mrs. Gresham Riley, also takes part. Thegirlstakeclasses atthe Ballet B arres, presently housed in a former army barracks at the intersection of Gen. Spaatz and Gen. Vandenburg roads. Students are charged $30 per term for two one-hour sessions every week. The college is paying half the bill, however, and as one girl put it, "It's atremendousbargain." "Miss Jean, as her students call her, is Director of the Florida Ballet Company, Inc. She is also Principal of the Florida Ballet Arts School and a co-founder with her husband, of the Florida Ballet Arts Foundation. Born in Montreal, Canada, Miss Spear trained with the National Ballet Company of Canada and at one time conducted five classical ballet schools in tl1at country. Several of these are still under her supervision, taught by her trained staff. She taught for sixteen years in Canadabeforesettling in Sarasota. Miss Spear has developed many teachers in both the United States and Canada as well as dancers who have gone on to successful careers with ballet companies in North A merica and Europe. She has been instructing several teachers from the Florida West Coast, preparing them for the Imperial Society examinations. The New College students agreed to forego their modern dance class for formal ballet when Miss Spear explained almost all forms of dancing are more easily mastered with prior training in the disciplines of ballet. In testimony to the success of the program, one second-year student whohadnothadformal ballet training before coming here has decided to pursue ballet as a career. Although she started too late to become an accomplished performer, Kathy Dively explained, she would like to become a teacher. She is attending classes almost daily, she said, in an effort to make up for lost time. The other girls, who are still participating mainly "forfun and ex-ercise, 11 had warm praise for Miss Spear and ilie ballet program. There was general agreement that ilie pro g r am should continue in years to come. In addition to providing healthful exercise, one said, the ballet develops emotional and mental discipline. The student of ballet must learn a host of terms--plie, arabesque, jete, etc. --and a whole new way of movement. "Every angle and curve of the body must be in perfect balance, Dively said. To achieve this, she continued, one must be completely alert and in control of all mental as well as physical processes. Whatever it is iliat makes ballet so satisfying to those involved, it seems the activity has quietly established itself as an important part of New College's extra-curricular "scene." Maureen Spear Girls assume positions for floor exercises under the supervision of one of Miss Spear's staff. In top picture, Maureen Spear, the ballet instructor's daughter, concentrates on one of numerous positions the girls must learn.

"Road to Morocco" starring Bing Crosby and Bob Rope and "My Little Chickadee" with Mae West have been ordered, although the reservation of ilie second film has not yet been confirmed, according to David Pini, chairman of the Student Film Committee. Meanwhile, Pini announced, ilie committee has ordered thirteen. films for next tenn. Films remaining to be shown this tenn are Fellini 's "Nights of Cabiria" Sunday and "Sundays and Cybele" July 17.
