Heirs Reje(f Offer To Buy Sanford House An offer made by the college to purchase the Hester Ringling Sanford home has been rejected, The Catalyst has learned. Vice President Paul Davis said yesterday the amount of the college's offer was not h1gh enough, although he declined to give the exact figures involved. Mrs. Charles Lancaster, whose husband is co-heir to the estate told The Catalyst the college's offer was "some $50, 000" less than the value of the estate as appraised several months ago by Sarasota Bank & Trust Co. executor of the property. Davis said that while negotiations would continue, the college will meanwhile go ahead with plans to solve its space problems without the Sanford home. June 2 4, 196 6 Session Shows 'What To Learn' The two -day 11bra inst orming11 conference o n a campus plan for the college succeeded in revealing "things we d on't lmo w, the thingswehaveyettolearn, 11 accordingto a summary of the session by President J ohn Elmendo rf. Vice president Paul Davis, who quoted the president's summary to The Catalyst yesterday said there is"no question" the conference held Thesday and Wednesday, was beneficial to the college. Unstructured space and the relationship of the interdisciplin:uy approach to education to the architecture of the institution were two ideas singled out by Davis as having been discussed extensively. Davis said the discussion centered on new educational concepts-especially at New College--and whether these new concepts demand new concepts in buildings. He said the participants in the conference also discussed what students and faculty really do at college as opposed to what planners think they should do. David Riesman, Davis said, "was particularly incisive in this area. 11 of time discussing what kind of housing students want. 11 She quoted Dean Robert Norwine as saying the college will probably always retain the liberality f:egard ing student rules) it currently has. It was suggested, she said, student housing should be designed in a manner consistent with libeml rules. Davis cited a feeling on the part of some at the conference that it is very important--especially at New College--that students"be enticed" into intellectual areas which they are not drawn to automatically. This does n o t mean, he said, that they sh ouldn't have a m ajor but they should be" almost compelled into areas well outside their major. The Sanford house lies on the bayfront and is connected to College Hall by a sheltered walkway. According to Davis, the Sanford residence could be used to house offices for the Humanities Division, the College Examiner, and other administrative posts. Dr. David Riesman, right foreground, chats with students at an informal gathering at the h ome of President John Elmendorf. The eminent socio l ogist and autho r was in Sarasota with his wife from Saturday through W ednesday to attend a conference here and to satisfy their curiosity about New College. Carol Worby, one of two student participants, repeated the evaluation of the conference as revealing "what we don't know. 11 She said the conference "spent quite a bit The c onference, Davis said, was "something we had to do to crystallize our own idea s and to look at our own ideas. He s aid the c onference did n o t and was not intended to produce any plans for actual buildings. In regard to student h ousing Davis said the c ollege is "pretty well c o n vinced" the next building it is g oing to need is student h ousing. He said additional housing space will be needed "a year from next fall." Presently 1 i vi n g in the s amord h:>me is Charles Lancaster, the late Mrs. Sanford's son, with his wife and son. Lancaster and his brother Stu art who lives in Hollywood, Cal., are sole heirs to the estate. Mrs. Lancaster said the house is being sold to settle the estate and to pay the estate's debts. She said she "regretted" she and her family are not in a financial position to give the home outright to the college. She said, however, she expects the college will "eventually" own the house. Mrs. Lancaster added that she thought the college could put the residence to "its best use. FirstYear CCT Giv e n Tomorrow Comprehensive Co 11 e g e Tests (CCT) for first-year students will be administered tom orr o w and Wednesday in College Hall. The tests are part of the first-year comprehensive examinations and are required of all first-year students. CCT's in the social sciences and the humanities will be administeredtomorrow afternoonfrom 1:30 to 4:30. Students should bring two pencils and reading material to the test sessions, according to Mike Mather, assistant to the College Examiner. The tests will be similar to those given first-year students during orientation in September. Room Forms Due By 5pm On Monday Roommate forms from all students are due at the College Examiner's office by 5 pm Monday. Students who fail to turn in properly signed forms by the deadline date will be assigned to the lowest priority for the drawing of room assignments for next year, according to Mike Mather, assistant to the College Examiner. The forms, available at the Examiner's office, require the sig-Mather natures of two students who plan to room together next year. On July 2, a drawing will be held in the Music Room of College Hall to determine the priority of choice of open rooms among the pairs of students desiring them. Women of the dass of 167 will have highest priority, followed by 168 women, '67 men, and '68 men. The drawing will begin at 10 am. Underthe room assignment plan, students who wish to keep their present rooms may do so. Only if neither of its present occupaiifs wants the room will it be placed "on the open market, 11 No single rooms will be available next year. Everyone must have a roommate "unless there is an odd number of men or women, according to Mather. Roommate pairs can choose rooms, from among those open, in the order determined by the draw. These choices .rrust then be reported at the Music Room July 3, at the following times: '67 women at 4 pm, 168 women at 4:15 pm1 11.i7 men at 4:30 pm, and '68 men at 4:45pm. After that, according to Mather, students will have until July 5 to make last minute roommate swaps. Rooms available to men include all rooms in the first court except room 133, and rooms 310 through 347 in the third court, except rooms 313, 315, and 317. Rooms arailable to women include all rooms in the second court, except 201, 219, 221, and 223, and rooms 300 through 305, 313, 315, and 317. In drawing for room choice priority and in reporting room selections, a roommate pair that includes a person from each class would be considered with the dass of '67. Students To Vote On Amendments Students will vote on several proposed amendments in the student government constitution in an election tentatively scheduled for July 6. The proposed amendments are the work of the five-member constitution study committee appointed June 1 by the Student Executive Committee. The initial report of the committee was made June 15 and a supplemen t:uy report was made Wednesday. Second-year student Tom Todd, chairman of the study committee, attended Wednesday's meeting of the SEC as proxy for secretary Tim Dunsworth. He moved to hold the election June 30, saying he thought it was best to vote before the Fourth of July weekend. His motion was tabled until a special meeting to be held Saturday in order to include more regular members of the SEC in the discussion of the proposed amendments. Five of the nine regular members attended the meeting Wednesday. Todd said y est erda y the study committee will meet after dinner tonight to formulate a tentative ballot form as requested by the SEC. Amendments in the constitution proposed by the study committee include chairman of the SEC t o be elected at large by the students in addition to the nine members of the committee. Under the committee'sproposal the chairman, as well as all members of the SEC, would serve for a term of approximately half the year. Alternates elected simultaneously with the regular members are also included in the proposed amendments. According to the report of the study committee as presented to the SEC this provision is to help eliminate the problems the SEC faces during independent study periods. In other business the SEC heard the report of social c om m itt e e chairman Karle Prendergast. She said the Landmark hotel on Lido beach would probably be eliminated as a possible site for the dance but that a place should be chosen by this weekend. She said the Landmark presented problems because the manager had said the guests would complain if the party were to last beyond midnight. Prexy Impressed Chuck Hamilton, representativeat-large to the SEC, reported to that body Wednesday President John Elmendorf was "duly impressed" by the results of last week' s student referendum on intervisit at ion hours. The president said, according to Hamilton, the beginning hour set is "unfairly arbitr:uy, 11 and he is "in the process" of reconsidering it. Hamilto n said things are left largel y "in the air. Advisor Sam Black s aid if there werP. any reasons at all for intervisi t a t ion then they are just as good f o r the morning h o urs. He said students are "no t less libidinous after lunch. The several "publics" he said are concerned with the evening hours primarily. There was little reaction, he added, tothe m orning h o urs. He t old the students "sev eral reasons come readily to mind" for putting the beginning h our b ack at 7 am. There is not time between n o w and then to formulate a permanent solution to the problem, Davis said. One tempor:uy solution suggested by Miami architect EdwardGrafton, Davis reported, is for the college to contract with private investors for construction of bungalow type two-student dwellingswhich could be spaced or clustered about the campuswhenneeded and later sold and removed. Davis said serious consideratio n would be given t o this and other ideas. Participants i n t h e conference were: Elmendo rf; Dr. Douglas Berggren, profess o r o f philosophy; Dr. Nell P. Eurich, chairman, Educational Policy and Personnel Committee, Board of Trust e e s; Edward G. Grafton, architect-partner in the fi r m of Pancoast, F eredino, Grafto n and Skeels, Miam i Other participants w e re: DavidB.

Page 2 Editorials Faculty Non-Activism The suggestion which arosefrom Dr. Riesman's discussion with students Monday that lack of activist faculty leadership may account for the lack of student activism is, we believe, true. Students naturally follow, to some extent at least, the lead of their teachers in these areas. From Dr. Riesman1s statement that student activism is not necessarily indicative of the quality of the institution, it is obviousthatneitherisfaculty activism an indicator. In fact in this case the lack of faculty activism indicates the extent to which our faculty members are involved with their proper function--teaching. With less certainty we offer this suggestion to apply to the students as well. Less optimistically, the lack of activism in both cases may simply be a fu:hction of the acute lack of time outside of classes and preparation for them from which members of the colle2e academic community suffer. In Confidence The Catalyst There may he a significant lack of 'activist leadership' on the p.lrt of the faculty. Riesman: The managing editor of The Oregon Daily Emerald, student newspaper of the University of Oregon, will stand trial next week on contempt of court charges. The editor, Miss Annette Buchanan, 20, has been ordered to stand trial for refusing to reveal her sources for a stoxy she wrote about the use of marijuana on the university campus. In interviews with seven students. she discovered marijuana smoking is apparently widespread on the campus. She estimated 200 to 400 of the university's 10, 000 students were users of the drug. She was asked to identify students who supplied her with the information reported in her stoxy. She refused to do so on three separate occasions and was ordered to stand trial after the third. Activism Not Of Institution's Indicator Quality Her prosecution, we believe, constitutes abridgment of freedom of the press. Naturally the district attorney, who is investigating drug abuses on cam pus, is i n t e r e s t e d in identifying these users. As long as pot is outlawed he has no other choice. It is not proper, however, for him to asl< Miss Buchanan to do his job for him. If indeed there are thismanymarijuanasmokersonthe campus, they will make themselves known in other ways. Wss Buchanan's silence will not necessarily prevent the proper functioning of justice. At worst it will only delay it, We hold, therefore, that to pWlish her for refusing to violate the confidence of her sources (a confidence without whichmuchnewsreporting would be seriously handicapped) not only violates her right to freedom from unjust prosecution but it also seriously curtails the freedom of the press to report important and valid news. Only 12 states have laws protecting the confidential sources of newsmen. This controve-rsy which has flared up around Miss Buchanan's search for the truth points out the value of these laws for all states. If convicted, Miss Buchanan faces up to a $300 fine and six months in jail. When her trial strarts next week, we hopethatnotonlywill Miss Buchanan's rights be respected, but that the freedom and traditions of journalism will also be respected. Editor Jury Denied Trial AnnetteBuchanan, managingeditor of the University of 0 r e go n Dail) Emerald, was turned down yesterday in a request for a jury in her trial for contempt of court. Miss Buchanan was charged after she had defied a court order to divulge the names of five University of Oregon students whom she had interviewed a; m arijuarra users. Her trial is scheduled to begin in Eugene, Ore., Mondar. Resigns; Position Open The Catalyst's Business Manager Jerry Neugarten has submitted his resignation effective the first of the '66-'67 school year. Queries regarding compensation and applications for the position should be directed to the editor or associate editor. Applications in writing are preferred. Student activi$m is not necessarily an indicator of the quality of an institution, according to Professor David Riesman, noted sociologist at Harvard Universit\. Bad schools c;n be actiYist and good schools non-activist, Dr. Riesman said, although he admitted quality an<;! activism "often" go hand in hand. In some schools, he said, activism can be a means of escape from a poor and unchallenging curriculum. Riesmanspoke about student ac tivism, among other topics, in an hour-and-:; -half discussion with some thirty students in the Pompeii RoomofCollegeHall Monday afternoon. He was on campus to participate in a conference on campus devel opment Tuesday and Wednesday. In his remarks to students Mon day, he said, "I'm interested in higher education, of course, but especially in new colleges About new colleges in general, Riesman said "a kind of disillusionment" usual!) besets students, \\ ho go with "all their hopes wrapped up in the institution" and then find it "never entirely lives up to their expectations. About New College in particular, Riesman said he thought it "interesting" that it is "one of the few good schools that did not hold teach-ins on Viet Nam." When he asked why, students replied that a high degree of institutional narCissism and the individualistic nature of the students were partly the cause. Another theory offered was that there is a significant lack of "ac tivist leadership" on the part of the faculty. Riesman cautioned, 1 don't think activism is necessarily advantageous. He warned against students becoming "committeemen" too soon. added he does not like "the forced pace of maturation students must undergo to avoid being square." He later said he felt "some controls" should be maintained by the administration over student social life. He questioned the theol") that leaving students "on their own" academically was inconsistent with social controls. "Social problems affect the com munity more di rectl), Riesman explained. About student drinking, however, Riesman said, "I think evel") college ought to teach its students to drink in a civilized way." In response to a question from a Neugarten, who served as advertising manager until January 281 when he ass u m e d the duties of Business Manager, cited 1 a c k of time as the reason for his resignation. Arms dramatically outstretched, first-year student some two dozen students held an impromptu choral per-Mike Cassell leads fellow students in song. formance in the Patio Room of College Hall Wednes-Caught up perhaps in the musical spirit of the campus, day at supper. student, Riesman admitted such a policy would often conflict with local drinking regulations, but he said colleges had an "obligation" to ensure against "bringing up a race of dnmkards. Although a non-drinker himself, Riesman said he favors 18 as the legal drinking age. In to a student remark about the necessity of early ca reer decisions in a three-year school, Riesman pointed out he had studied Jaw before switching to sociology. "Throw yourself into something at college without regard to your latf.'r career," he advised. "Leam from it, taste work, and gain a self confidence that you could conquer any field. "Of course, there is a practical difficulty in changing into some fields," he said, "but these are relatively few. "At most, U1ere will be a oneyear transition period, and that is not bad after a three-year undergraduate program." In speaking of the experimental techniques being here, Riesman said new ideas are tried out in women's colleges. "New College is the only college in the coWltry I know of where the boys are smarter than the girls," he added. He said his conception of an ideal university would be one which employed tutorial, seminar and large-class techniquas in a proper balance.

June 24, 1966 SAFC Grants $500 To Dance The Student Activity Fund Committee allocated $500 Tuesday to subsidize the planned year-end dance July 8, according to Social Committee chairman Karle Pren dergast, She also indicated $100has been assured the committee from the recreation budget administered by Peter Odell. According to SAFC member Sam Treynor, approximately $50 re mains in the activity fund. The dance is planned as part of an all night eventto include a buffet dinner and beach party. Music will be by The Galaxies, a Tampa group. According to Miss Prendergast, the cost per student will probably not rise above $2, The Catalyst Second-year student Tom Lesure, on leave of absence for a term's work in Surinam (British Guiana) investigating that country's giant marine turtles, sends this picture of "fishermen at the market." Of the market he says, "It doesn't smell too bad early in the morning, but by noontime it is pretty rank." Tests Show Students Achieve In Accordance With Abilities Areportfrom the College Examiner's office indicates "students are generally achieving in accordance with their abilities. En t it 1 e d "Correlations among SAT's, CCT's, and Comprehensives--Class of 1967, "the sevenpage report also attempted a general evaluation oflast year's comprehensive examinations. Accordingtothe report, "the Social Science comprehensives may have been too general and the Humanities comprehensive too de tailed" "the comprehensives in general' do not differentiate well between fields (as, pemaps, they should not)"; and "of the three general essay in the comprehensives only that for Humanities was satisfactory as a measure of student achievement." Also, the report suggested, SAT scores seem valid enough to be weighted more heavily in admissions, "if that is desirable." These conclusions are based on tetrachoric correlations co:mputed between the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), Comprehensive College Tests (CCT), and comprehensive examination scores for the Class of 1967. Because of the small number of cases, 49 men and 38 women, and the statistical methods used, "the res u 1 t s must be considered with caution, the report reads. However, the findings "will probably stand up in another year except for actual changes in conditions operating at the college, the report continues. Specifically, the report listed the following findings: ( 1 ) The validities of the SAT's f o r the comprehensive examinations (in particular the overall scores listed first in each division) are remarkably high for a college as selective as New College. This implies that the admission' s people wer e able to :ttracthigh SAT candidates, while nevertheless, weightingother factors. The high validities me an that, if it were considered desirable, heavier se-lection of SAT could be used before the test scores become "used up" in their effectiveness in pick.. ing students with academic potential. (2) SAT-Vis particularly highly valid for the Social Science comprehensives. SAT-M is also more v a 1 i d for these than might have b e en expected. SATV is relatively invalid for the Humanities comprehensives. These findings suggest that bright students could "bull" their way too easily, perhaps, through the Social Science examinations, while the Humani ties examinations call for more specific achievements, possibly too detailed. The SAT validities for the Natural Science comprehensives are comparatively at about the expected level. (3) The SAT's correlate at least as highly with the August CCT's as they do with the early ones. This suggests that students at New Co 11 e g e continue to develop achievement in accordance wit h their abilities. It refutes the 1de a that a substantial number o f good students were allowed t o drift. It does imply, however, that students with 1 esse r ability are not being brought along to the extent that, perhaps, they c ould be with highly individual attention. (4) The correlations between the CCT's and the comprehensive examinationstendtobe high. While the few very low ones make good sense, there is in general only rather poor correspondence between correlation size and likeness of sub ject matter. All of this suggests that the comprehensives were reasonably reliable as measurements but were not pure as measures of their respective subject matters. With the emphasis being as it is on comprehensiveness and integration, this is not necessarily a criticism. These relationships bear watching in future years when better data become available. Actually the failure to find clear subject-matter distinction is due part-GOLDEN HOST I H TOWN RESORT MO TOR HOTEL 10 Bea utiful Rooms-5 0 Foo t Poo l Putting 6ree1.-Complete Hotel Service 4675 North Tamiami Trail Phone: 355 The Oyst e r Bar Sa r a sota's O ri g i H I ltaw ler 1 Mile S o w tlt of S ticbey Pohtt loo H Sotttll Troll INFORM A L "You'll Love O ur Seafood" INEXPENSIVE Serving from II A.

Page 4 (\ marca1o --clef' .,.. .rd I l I notes By Kenji Oda Qui et! Artists "That was good, Paul, very good," David Dawson said to a swaying intense Paul Wolfe. "Don't wony so much about the sounds as the movement of the thing," Wolfe said to Anita Brooker during a subsequent pause. So Mrs; Brooker didn't wony so much about the sound and worried a Httle more about the movement, and Wolfe continued playing very well, and at the end Gabor Rejto smiled a contented smile .... The four were rehearsing Dvorak's "American" Quartet in F Major, Oda op 96, in the Music Room of College Hall. A small but appreciative audience of Summer Music Festival students, New College students, and sundry passers-by listened in to this partial preview of Friday night's concert at the West Coast Symphony Hall. It's always interesting to watch musicians at work, but when the musicians of the calibre of the previously-mentioned four, then the experience becomes an exciting treat reserved for the lucky toofew. Just think: a featured artist at the Casals Festival and conductor of the Florida West Coast Symphony Orchestra; the chairman of the string department, School of Music, University of Southe111 California; guest solo ists with the Vienna Sym phony, Budapest Symphony, Minneapolis Symphony, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and the NBC Symphony Orchestra .... So a little later, oboist Robert Bloom carne and violinist Mr... Brooker left, and the revised quartet (including Wolfe on violin, and Rejto on cello) worked on Britten's Phantasy for Oboe and Strings. I was at the brink of ecstasy during an oboe-cello duo when Bloom suddenly stopped and turned to Rejto with something close to anger in his voice: "You're a quarter ahead." Tension, confusion, ahums, ahems ... But W olfe pointed out he had added a quarter to adjust during Bloom's solo a few measures prio r, and Dawson reported he had d one the same. So Bloom took another look, saw his mistake, and everyone chuckled good -naturedly, and they played the part over again-right, this time .... Students here may n o t realize it, but they've got something really RIP VAN WINKLE BOWLING ............... ,, .... 7N7 N..,. TNI At Work! worth getting excited about: every so often, when the wind is right, nice s o unds can be detected coming out of the Music Room. Music by Wolfe and co. for example, and also by pemaps the best flutist in the world .... Opinionhasbeen unanimous during the first week of the second annual New College Summer Music Festival that the festival is one rousing success. Rave reviews of Sunday's faculty concert have appeared in most of the area newspapers. Students who witnessed last year' s festival claim this year's faculty and students are 100% better than those of 1965. Six chamber concerts remain on this year's schedule, beginning with one t onight at 8:30. I enthusiastically urge everyone to make them if they can. (Tickets are $3 per person per night, and they are available from Mrs. Elizabeth Heimert, in the humanities office or at the gate. A series of tickets for three nights is available f o r $8.) A special effort should be made to see Dawson, Rejto and flutist Julius Baker before they leave Sunda y night. Baker, formerl y first flutist w ith the Pittsburgh, Chicago, and CBS Symphony orchestras, and n o w solo flutist with the New York Phil harmonic, is the main attraction o f the faculty c oncerts, as far as I m concerned. Coming in next week are J ohn Barrows (French hom), Leslie Par nas (cello), and Walter Trampler (viola) So, ignore the strange peo p l e who take up places in the Patio Room during meals, c oncentrate on the music, and be inspired.

Tests (continued from page 3) think about g en e r a 1 integrated p roblems or specific problems in depth within the division, the measurement ctuality of these essays may be judged by their correlations with the SAT's and the corresponding CCT achievement test. It must be concluded that the Social Sciences chosen topic was no good as a measuring instrument; theN at ural Sciences general essay was not much better; while on the other hand, the Humanities general essay was at least reasonably successful. These results are not difficult to explain. The So cial Sciences essay was difficult to score, since it permitted an unlimited choice of specific t opics, and it was not scored adequately, since only one person, and a different perso n scored the essays in each field. (Illness of members o f the faculty was partly responsible f o r this situation. ) The Humanities essays, one the hand, were chosen f ro m a prescribed list of t opics, and all ess ays were read by two persons, one o f who m read all the papers.
