Florida March 18, 1966 First College Open House Scheduled For Sunday New College opens its campus Stmday to informal tours by visitors for the first time since its opening in 1964. Open for inspection will be College Hall, Robertson Hall, the Barn, the Natural Sciences Laboratories, East Campus residence courts and the swimming pool. On the West Campus, the flagpole, a gift of Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Bon Seigneur, and the landscaped area aroWld it, will be dedicated to college use by President John Elmendorf at brief ceremonies at 1:15 pm. The Riverview Histh School Kiltie Band will perform afterward north of College Hall Wl til A nwnber of exhibits will be displayed in College Hall showing various student activities. Karle Prendergast has been : ts signe d b y the Student Executi:"l.-e Committee to coordinate student activitiesl )t day. Working with her and in charge of various areas of the campus are: Kenji Oda, East Campus; ToiiJ Todd, College Hall; John Cranor, WestCampus grounds; Kramer Darragh, campus entrances; Denby Barnett, waterfront; and Steve Hall, swimming pool. Flu Bug Sweeps Dorms, Affects Many Students A malady generally supposed to be a type of flu swept the East Campus dormitory in the last half of this week. Mrs. Frances LeMasters, campus nurse, said yesterday approximately 30 students had reported to her with symptoms whh: h included nausc.L. fever, diarmea, headache and backache. John Cranor and Karle Prendergast throw open the doors of College in sumbolic welcome to the citizens of S:ut have not reported, she said. Mrs LeMasters said she hoped the i;acidence of new cases would level off by the weekend. and at meals because so many students were confined to bed, or at least to their rooms, to recuperate. Other usually busy areas of the cam. pus were quiet. Many members of The Catalyst staff were Wlable to participate yesterday in prepara tiou of this ees SEC Statement Gives Noise Rules In response to a from Student Disciplinary. the Student Executive Comm1ttee has 1ssued a statement clarifymg qmet hours and their implications. The s:atementreads: "Duringquiethours, conditions should be such that there is no noise, originating either indoors or out, which might distract any student from study pr sleep. "At allothertimes, students may make a reasonable am.ouat: of nois e New Cha1 1an of the SEC provided they are not actually disturbing a person's study. "Complaints against noise maybe made at anytime. All complaints registered during quiet hours infer violations automatically. Validity of complaints made at other times will be up to the discretion of the Disciplinary Cl:>mmittee members." At present, quiet hours are set at 8 pm on weeknights and 1 am on Friday and Saturday nights. There has been some question as to what "quiet hours" entailed, as the SEC has always supported the stand that students should not be interrupted from studies or sleep due to unnecessary noise, no matter what the hour. In other actions this week, the SEC formally recognized the Cur riculwn Committee and tried to firm up plans for this Sunday's 0.. pen House. Also, David Allen, a first-year student from Shreveport, Louisi ana, was elected new chairman of the SEC. Steve Waterman's term of office expired this week. Knox To Speak On Faulkner Af ter D inner Friday's Forum will focus on WilliamFaulkner--theman, hisback ground, and his art--as presented by Dr. Robert Knox of the New College f acuity. The program will begin at 7 pm in the Music Room. "I hope to introduce several different critical approachestoFaulk ner," explained Dr. Knox. Dr. Knox has a general critical theory of his own which may or may not lead to a "Berggrenistic" demolition of the other theories he presents. 111 intend to trace some of the influences in his work, such as Joycean ele ments." Dr Knox will concentrate on The and the Fury, Light in AUAbsalom Absalom! in his (lliCussionofFa:akiler1s art. "lfeel that The Sound and the and Absalomfi:Absalom! are Fa er1s greatest terary aChievements. Of course which one you consider the best 'of his writings depends on whether you are biased toward a classical or baroque style. 11 Dr. Knox promised to reveal his ''bias" and the reasons behind it at the Forum. F aullmer, a native Mississippian, frequently cotmted among Americafs greatest writers, is a twentieth -century writer, deeply influenced by modern experiments in narrative point of view and the creation of realistic effects. At the same time, he may be related to the nineteenth century romance tradition of Hawthome and Melville. His novels (Continued on page 4, column 1) Mrs. LeMasters reported she made an "emergency" trip to the campus one night this week when she was called by a studentsufferingsevere abdominal cramps and other "flu" symptoms. However, no students have been hospitalized and apparently the ailment is expected to run its course in all cases shortly. Grad Info Available The first step in setting up a center for graduate school and fellowship information bas been taken, reports Mr. Earl Helgeson of the Admissions Department. ln a lengthy memorandum distributed todaytosecond-year students, Mr. Helgeson outlined the college's status and plans regarding pqst graduate activities and also gave advice to students who will soon make applications to graduate schools or for fellowship awards. "We are now writing to several graduate schools for their bulletins, t the memo said. "These should be arriving during the next few weeks and will be added to the which Mike Mather has started. ,. Mather is the assistant to the College Examiner. When files are organized, Mr. Helgeson will head the office that will have charge of them. ''What we are going +-o try to do is to centralize informa ion about graduate schools and funds, explained Mr. Helgeson. "The job of in these matters is still the duty of faculty members.,, A group of students will be assigned to each of these areas to serve as guides. The main al'e a open for inspection on the East Campus will be Court Two, where 10 rooms will be available to the public. Court One ..vill have five rooms open and Court Three will have only classrooms open. Refreshments will be served on campus north of College Hall. The staff of The Catalyst is preparing a special open house edition to be distributed to visitors. The paper will serve as a guide to the campus and will contain descriptions of various colltge f

Page 2 Editorially Speaking Open House Is Chance For Communication Students have long decried the lack of communication between the college and the surrounding community. On Sunday, however, they will have the opportunity to open the channels through the college's first open house. They have been given perhaps the major role in Sunday's activities. Much of the responsibility for the efficiency and success of the open house will rest with them. In a statement for The Catalyst, President John Elmendorf said: "I hope everyone in the college community will welcome all visitors as they would welcome guests in their home, showing pride in what we have accomplished." The Catalyst March 18, 1966 No-one is asking students to" compromise their principles"; no-one is asking them to become showmen for a day. Rather, students are being asked to be gracious hosts for four hours, extending a warm welcome to area citizens who are interested in New Collesze and curious to see it close-up.

Writer Makes Town-Gown Comment Statement on Quiet Hours Needs Clarification The Student Executive Committee 1 s attempt to clarify quihours has, unfortunately, raised more questions than it has answered. Inreadingthe written statement given to us we are disturbed at the sentence: "All complaints rcgistereci'dur ing quiet hours infer violations automatically." The usc of the word "infer" in this context, we feel is certainly a simple on the part of those who drafted the statements. However, we begin to feel uneasy as we attempt to fathom what word is supposed to be in its place. From the context S<"Htence, it is possible to infer that the correct replacement. is "are considered. Frightening, no? Imagine the possibilities for blackmail, for control by one over all, Making anything an automatic violationonthe basis of a complaint compromises the precious principle of innocence till proven guilty. There is no doubt that this was merely a semantic slip-up onthepartofthe SEC and that they had something of a less rigiddefinitionof quiet hours in mind. However, we cannot allow them human error as an excuse for dropping the matter. We hope the SEC will make the necessary corrections and re-issue an "official" definition of quiet hours at the next meeting. Focus 0 n Representatives As Mr. Millerpointedout last week in his memorandum to the College Council, the recent conflicting unanimom votes by the College Council and the Student Executive Committee raise some interesting questions about representative qualities of the members of those organizations. Since we cannot defend the accuracy of the poll taken of the faculty, we will not concern ourselves with the question of whether the faculty members of the College Council "did not believe in the validity of what they recommended. In the case of the student 'l'epresentatives, however, the same persons had opportunity to vote twice on the same question nnd contradicted themselves on the second vote. We are somewhat disturbed by this inconsistency. Is it actually plausible that someone who recommended intervisitation by shortened could not later "find any legitimate reason to cut intervisitation hours. "? We do not think so. Perhaps our representatives to the College Council and some of our representatives on the SEC (it is an unfortunate part of the system that they are the same persons) are too easily swayed by the prevailing mood of the group with which they are sitting. Perhpas it is time the students turned their attention away from the system for a while and focused on the qualifications of their representatives.

Bruce Guild Staff: Caol Ann Otilclress, Glenda CiTo the Editor: I wish to make a Town versus Gown comment, and if you publish letters from people outside your w;Uls, t night be mtldly enlightening to those -..f the stftdent body who seem to feel there is something odd about the .:..ommun ity attitude toward New College. I have detected a what-goes-onhere-anyway vein in some of the items in The Catalyst, and in the student appraisals included in the Herald-Tribune supplement a few weeks back. First let me question this Cultural Community gambit. .Com menting on urban life in the December 24th issue of LIFE, Conrad Knickerbocker wrote: culture is a fashionable yearning of the city dweller. With a few no table exceptions, urban cultural undertakings are an inch deep and a mile wide. Like so many communities, Kansas City tends to tolerate a cultural undertaking only if it meets two standards: l) the art form in question must have no discomforting bearing whatsoever on one's own 2) the pres e tation must be big and spectacular, producing lots of newspaper cli"p pings and local names in the paper." So we shall chop Sarasota Culture into two ugly lumps and examine each separately. First, the Public Culture, as described above. It is the additive which commercial interests all over the ro.tntry have discovered practically simultaneously. It can be advertised. It might attract new industry. And it can be linked with a fash ionable and overwcxked word--Ex cellence. (Beware of those who keep talking about excellence. They are the ones most willing to compro mise it. Taking them seriously is like buying a used car from a fellow calling himself Honest John. ) Public Culture is limited to that area where the product can be staged: recitals, lectures, concerts, exltibitions, opera, ballet, etc. Money must be raised to mount these proJects. Thus risk is minimized by staying with the tried and true, and renaming it classic ... Sarasota has as much of this sort of thing going on as most communities thrice its size. Thus to that extent we can be labeled a cultural community. One can expect that within the mino, john Hart, eryl Hess, Dale Hicl<&m, Allan Jawo!$ki, Tom Man teul!el. Kay Moller, Neil Olsen, Steve Laune Paulton, David Pin!, Patty Siemlnslti, Beverly Sboenberger, Sam Treynor, Lee Wal llngf<>N, eryl White A NEW SIGN, installed JUSt m time for Sunday's open house, decorates the main gate to the West Campus. Hopefully, the sign will let visitors know that they are touring a college and not a mansion-turned-museum. areas denoted above, the performances which New College will import in ever growing frequency as years go by will be of that experimental nature which can impart a more telling variety of the "shock of recognition. 11 Call the other half ofthe lump Private Culture. There are, in this area, a whole underground swarm of people who are working very bard in various creative are And many of them are doing very good work indeed, work known nationally and internationally. The local power strucntre is forever trying to tum these private persons into Public Culture, to make them somehow merchandisable. Should they ever come up with any effective leverage to accomplish this end, we would all fold up our cabanas and noisily steal away. This creativt! tLDder ground, with a few e> is not likely to be found partaking of Public Culture. Ther aremore likely-though old to know better--to get so inv<'l vcd in ab stract argumentation that the pearly light of dawn comes as a trnrr1d shock. This is our re-ality-. The fantasy is when I find myself pictured in What to See and Sarasota. I cannot imagine any preoccupation more barren than Seeing a writer, and have no idea about what there is about me to Do. The thing that the faculty and students of New College have in common with the creative underground is perpetual query--the fertilizer which sustains continuing growth. And sooner or later the constant questioner is going to run smack up against one of those who say, "There is only one way to do things, and that is my way. 11 That's when it hits the fan, and during those inevitable periods of ferment, conflict, and bowls of righteous anguish, we will choose up sides. After the ball game we all go home and break contact until the next time. That is when New College will discover just how unexpectedly good and just how astonishingly bad this area is, and all the rest of us will learn how good it is for us and the community to have a solid bastion of academic freedom just up the pike. (All areas are very good and verybad.) State-supported institutions have to walk a little more lightly than do privately endowed ones. But New College is going to have to walk just as lightly until its mo mentum is finally assured. That is because there is still financial dependence on the local Establishment, and donors might confuse the points at issue, and not realize that Gown vs. Town, or Growth vs. Stasis, is a valnable part of the education process-both for those inside yotLr gates and us out here. So, for those students who have the baffled feeling of having been plunked down in a sea of apathy slightly tinged with hostility, I offer the thought that the student body was selected rather more carefully than was the citizenry. (signed) John D. MacDonald Editor's note: Mr. MacDonald is a resident of Sarasota and author of the Travis Magee series. John D. MacDonald Hunahs To Davis To the Editor: It seems that the most original thinker with the most respected ideas on campus isMr. Paul Davis, May! again take time out to ap plaudMr_ his tmderstanding pexception of the total college situation. His remarks as recorded in last week's Cat.llyst clearly evidence his great desire to further the New College ideal, his terse but keen diplomacy, and his ne..,er-ending t;ght for truth, justice, and the American way. Huzzahs to Paul Davis. Obviously, Kenny Misener Too Idealistic? Dear Editor: On February 25, under the auspices of the New College Council and the Student Executive Committee, each student was asked to fill out an Academic Program Evaluation form for the first term and the firstindependent study period. The next night a student meeting ended with the general view that: "the social problems of New College aren't as vital as the academic problems," and, start \\Qrl\!l'SOns who did fill out the f<'rm did an excellent job of evaluating their courses and of rna kinR pertinent and critical recommendations. But it is equally true that if the forms had been filled out and then con-elated, the resulting compendium would have provided a firm foundation and forceful thrust for student opinion of the academic problems of New College. At any rate, it must have been too idealistic to expect a large l'e!>ponse to the form. Dutthen agalll, whoever said that New Colll be students were idealistic? Or more to th ; point, whoever said New students act as if ? Sincerely, Charles Hamilton P.S. !wish thebestof luckto newly formed Curriculum Cormrlt tec.


March 18, 1966 on Pau/so11. New Bookstore Bargains A$ everyone knows, the most exciting event currently on campus is the bookstore's Student Appreciation Week. In conjunction with this grand event, the bookstore asked me to publicize a few of their "New College Specials. "Since, as usual, I had no ideas of my own, I decided to comply. Here arc just a few of the magnificent bargains the bookstore will be featln'ing through tomorrow; There are many publications available that constitute food for thought for New College students. One of these is the report of the Food Committee, full of fried shrimp and roast beef air!1us which should be of s ome co ort for students d\D.'ing the cottage cheese and stale tuna fish sandwich co\D.'Se, Speaking ofthingl>Culinary, a colle ctio n of those wonderful, witty ads about eating at Hall has been compiled, and the handsome, intelligent creator of these ads (who shall, of coln'Se, remain nameless), reports they are being sold at absolutely no financial loss tohimself. In the cosmetic department, a new item is specially sale priced. Called Respectability, it was especially for the New College Open House. It will tln'n any normal New Collegian into a clean, polite, and, above all, respectableyoung person, for limited periods of time. Providing 12 holD.' protection, it is available either in cream or spray. games is available, Also on the same reel are two Donald Duck cartoons, and the combination is sure to enliven any party. Probably the most practical item of all is the patented <;:met Hour Persuader, Housed in a compact, imitation plastic case, the Persuader emits a shrill, piercing siren noise which is automatically regulated to exceed the noise level in the courts. Students tempted to sinS(, scream. cry, or play records Paulson Ovd' l.he are instantly deafened, thus discolD.'aging them violating quiet ho\D.'S, The Sll'Cll shuts itself off when quiet has been achieved. Finally, two books have been pro duced by the New College community as a result of recent socializations. One of these is 101 Thine to Do with left-Over Pop Tops y a student who had nothing better to do that Sunday. The other, probably a masterpiece, is a mystical wod< produced by a student under the influence of intoxicants offered to him by malicious companions. In a semi-conscious state, this student saw visions which he set down in this beautiful volwne. You will be captivated by the fantasies this student saw of great buildings rising alongside the dorms, with concealed serving area. This book is also an effective moral treatise on the dangers of these intoxicants. So, eveniffantasyis not your interest, come to the bookstore during this sale and let them show you how much they really appreciate you. The Catalyst Oilers Slippery For NC Cagers The New College 69ers met an inspired American Oil Dealers quintet Monday night in what could have been their last league encounter of the 1965-66 season. Some confusion exists as to whether the 69ers have on> remaining league game due to a postpone ment of an earlier game which may not be played. In any case, Monday night's action between two teams already mathematically eliminated from the post-season tournament was tense, exciting, and for the favored 69ers, sloppy and disappointing. The contest was not which team would Wil;\ but rather, which would lose. Both teams actively pursued the latter honor with considerable enthusiasm. The game jumped off to a rousing start when someone scored a basket. That set a precedent and the other members of both teams concentrated their on dupHeating the action. So it went for the rest of the game: a basket here, another one there, with a fo\11 or two, thrown in for spice. The end product was a 51-49 defeat for the 69ers. The New College cagers possessed a 15 to 9 first quarter lead which dwindled to a 26 to 21 half tim> margin. The defeat was downhill from that point as the Oil ers gained three points in the third period and managed to outscore the 69ers 18-14 in the final stanza. The waning moments of the contest saw feverish activity on both sides as each of the ten players on the court tried to insure defeat for his team. Infractions of the rules, poor passes, and odd shots were the rule rather than the exception. The only thing which garnered defeat for the NC five was their obviously greater knowledge of the intricacies of throwing a basketball game in the last three minutes. No one person can be given all the for the defeat was tru-ly a team effort. Larry Alexander accidentally led the New Col lege scoring with 15 points. He was closely followed by Tom Lesure with 14 markers. Guards John Cranor and Craig Bowman led the team at times and at times they didn't, but throughout the entire game they managed to score, and tallied eight points apiece. Peter Odell contributed four points to round out the scoring. Geors;(e Finkle and Dean Robert Notwine cannot claim a full share in the defeat for neither contributed enough significant mistakes'. Perhap the brig: test star on the 69er horizen is Nancy Flatter who scored a truly magnificent game and was not at all influenced by personal glo ry. The next outing for the "team" will be Tuesday against the Oyster Bar in a non-league tilt--unless a game is played Monday Myakka Lanes, in which case that will b e the next outing.

Page 4 Cement Poured For Walkway, Lab Started Cement was poured this week for the connecting walkway between the complex and Hamilton Court and work was begun on construction of the science laboratory annex. Latest reports indicate that some of the facilities in Hamilton Court may be finished around Labor Day. Remainder of construction is slated for completion Oct. 22. Construction effort is being concentrated on the dining facilities in the building in order to have them ready for use when the new class enters in September or as soon there after as possible. The science annex will be prefabricated like the existing struc ture. The new lab space will be taken up by several biology labs, organic, inorganic and physical chemistry labs, a psychology lab, a zoological lab, storage areas, and several offices. The present lab space will be slightly modified and will house physics labs and shops and offices.

Dr. Millard White, County Medical examiner, said death was caused by an unidentifiable acute infection. However, spinal meningitis was not the cause, he re ported. Jane worked at New College for a year and a half. The business office was closed Tuesday afternoon, as the entire staff attended the funeral sexvices at the Robarts Funeral Home. Hoist Repaired Peter Odell, Athletics Co-Ordinator, has annotmced that the boat hoist behind College Hall is repaired and that Sunfishes#! and#2 and the pram are in operating order. He also revealed that Sunfish #1 had been returned tmdamaged after an unauthorized person had "borrowed" it. Faulkner Walkway between residence courts and Hamilton Court began to take recognizable form this week, as workmen started pouring cement. In foreground, workers smooth out semi-hardened ce-ment; in background, meanwhile, fresh cement is being poured. In connection with this incident, Mr. Odell told The Catal}rst: "It should be the responsibility of anyone associated with New College to report the use of our boats by any one ot.her than the college's students, faculty, and staff." Also, Mr. Odcl.l has given first year student Denby Barnett responsibility for care of the boats, and any problems that arise with the boats should be brought to Denby's attention.

He explained that these were things implied by the New College Student Sociogram, a three-dimensional representation of student association habits. Mr. Mather spent some 20 to 25 hours building the Sociogram from data obtained through questionnaires distributed to students some weeks ago. Asked what his Sociogram showed, Mr. Mather replied: "The most striking thing about the social geo graphy of New College is that there seems to be a very high degree of interaction.

It's difficult not to 1 associate' with at least one person, whereas 1 close friendships' might have given a different result. "Another thing the Sociogram seems to show is that there is an above-average number of visilile cliques. By 'cliques' I'm referring to groups of ten or twelve people who all chose each other as their associates. These groups are fairly large and apparently fairly intimate, and I don't think you'll finC:i this kind of thing at most places.

Of course, some of this was natural human curiosity the desire to know who chose whom, but I do think there is some feeling of insecurity." Mr. Mather explained that these were somewhat off-the-cuff observations and that the Sociogram is of no great profundity. "I did it just for fun, he said. "In fact, I'm thinking of following up by doing another Sociogram a couple of months from now, just to see how things will have changed.
