Trustees Elect Dort New Chairman Dillas W. Dort was elected Tuesday as new chairman of the Board of Trustees, succeeding Louis H. LaMotte, who retired from the post after serving two consecutive terms. Elected to membership on the Board of Trustees, as the group met for its annual meeting, were Group Captain Hugh M. Groves and L. W. Homing of Sarasota, and Charles A. Hamilton of GlynEllyn, Illinois. Re-elected to new terms on the board were trustees Emmet Addy, Mrs. Jane B. Cook, Dr. Nell P. Eurich, George F. Higgins, Dr. Wes ley A. Hotchkiss, Dr. Samuel C. Kincheloe, David B. Lindsay Jr. and Robert B. VanSkike Jr. Inother actions, the board made a thorough revision of its bylaws and approved an operating budget for the coming fiscal year. In conjunction with the trustee's actions, three men were re-elected to membership in the F r i ends of New corporation Dort assist in the support of the college. They are Edward yY. Beattie Jr., Robert C. Bon Seigneur, and L. W. Homing. The trustees also gave their approval to the formation of a board of overseers, whose members will serve as counselors to the college intlteirfieldsof expert knowledge. Humphrey Aide Visits Campus Vice President Hubert Humphrey 1s press secretary visited the campus Wednesday with his bride of two weeks and talked with several stu dents following ltmch with college officials. Norm an Sherman told the students oftheneedfor educated and inter ested persons in government, and talked with them about current af fairs. Hesaidhe andhiswife were married two weeks ago and they were "winding up" their honeymoon. The couple was flown here from Miami by Don Biggs, Development Officer. First members will be elected at the next meeting of the full Board of "Ihlstees, set for November 10-11. New chairman Dort was elected to the Board of Trustees in 1964, andhe served during this past year as vice chairman and as head of the finance committee. Elected to serve with Dort were: Benton W. Powell, first vice chairman; Dr. Hotchkiss, second vice chairman; Sumner B. Emerson, chairman of the Executive Com-mittee. The trustees unanimously elected Dr. John Elmendorf as president, Paul D. Davis as vice president and assistant secretary, Robert B. Van Skike as secretary, Benton W. Powell as treasurer, Charles Harra as assistant treasurer and controller, and Dr. Howard E. Spragg and Dr. W. D. Sugg as members at large of the Executive Committee. The Board of Trustees commended four trustees either res i g n in g or retiringfrom service with the college--Or. Alfred H. Barr Jr., Dr. George F. Baughman, the Reverend Dr. John Whitney MacNeil, and Dr. Carroll V. Newsom. Each of the new trustees--Groves, Hamilton, and Homing--was elected to a three-year term, bringing the board strength to 31 members. Cheves Jr., attorney for some of the students, Spanos admitted he was never a student at New College and did not have the approval of any member of the administration to park his car on the campus. He said parts, including one tire, were stolen before April 17. Also in reply to Cheves' questions he said the car did not have 1966 license plates. Cheves showed Spanos what he said were two parking tickets from Manatee County and asked if he had ever seen them before. Span os replied, "Yes, but said he thought they were lost and had forgotten about them. Spanos further admitted he had not gone back to the campus to look for his car since the alleged damagewasdone. He also admit-(continued on page 3 column 4) SEC Hears Modes Of SDC Procedure Modes of procedure for the Student Disciplinary Committee were presented to the Student Executive Committee for discussion at the SEC's meeting Wednesday. Several changes were recommended by the SEC to the SOC, which is a subcommittee of the SEC. The changes were only recommended, however, because the SEC had pre Viously guaranteed the SOC auton omy except in matters directly concerning the SEC. These five points of the nine point docUlllent were not contested: 1) All meetings of the SDC will be held at a time and place previously published for student information except if a special meeting is necessary in which case prior notice need only be given to the principals of any action being taken as mentioned above. 2) All people who are involved directlyindecisionsto be made by the SDC will be notified sufficiently before the meeting at which they will be involved to allow for their presence at the meeting. 3) All meetings of the SDC will be open to the college community except for the periods during which the actual decisions will be made. 4) If a person is subject to pub lic trial for the same infraction for which he is subjectto action by the SOC, the SEC will not decide upon the case until the public action has been concluded. 5) If a member of the SDC is one of the principals of an action before the SOC, that person will have a substitute provided for him by the SDC in the m anne r proVided for below: Point six, which deals with sub stitutes for absent members, makes it possible for fewer members than a quonun of the committee to appoint substitutes for absent mem bers. .. First-year representative KenJl Oda, whoisthe current SEC chair man, expressed concern about "ac (continued on page 2 column 5) Hamilton Hits SEC Position On Liquor ChuckHamilton, representativeat-large to the Student Executive Committee, criticised that committee's position regarding state alcoholic beverage statutes. His criticism came at Wednes day's meeting of the SEC during discussion of a motion he made Hamilton which, in part, provided "that the SEC and its appointed committees renounce any pretense of enforcing the Beverage Laws. Before Hamilton made this motion, however, his motion "that de SEC and its appointed committees wod< in their capacities to enforce the State Beverage Laws" failed for lack of a second. Saying "the student body does not really know where they stand" in regard to the state liquor laws, Hamilton urged the SEC to clarify its position in the matter. Heated discussion followed during which strong opposition to Hamil ton's views was expressed. First-year representative David Allen moved to amend the last section of the motion to read: ''that the SEC inform the administration of the college that it is up to them to enforce the liquor laws." Ray Enslow, second-year representative and chairman of the Student Disciplinary Reform Committee, an appointed subcommittee of the SEC which has been investigating possible changes in the rules of the SEC, told the committee the rules will be codified by the next meeting. It was suggested codification of existing rules could change the degree of misunderstanding current on the part of the students about the SEC's position regarding the liquor laws. Terming his trip "strictly personal, 11 he said he was not acting as a spokesman for Humphrey. Mr. and Mrs. Norman Sherman David JJlen then moved to table the motion until the next meeting. Bill Clladwick seconded the motion, which was carried.

In picture at left, Craig Bowman gives traditional victory sign after charges against him were dropped. Residents Cite Security Need Student Executive Committee advisor Arthur M. Miller, speaking for the faculty residents, told the SEC Wednesday of the residents' concern for the security and safety of the students. He read a draft of a memo signed by a 11 the residents currently on campus. He told the SEC he was uncertain what to do with the memo. "My impulse," he said, "is to send it to the President with a copy to the Dean of Students. Dean Robert Norwine suggested through established channels and address the memo to the College Council. Miller replied, "I am unsure the College Council has done anything constructive in its life." Miller asked for suggestions and/ or endorsement for the document Miller from the SEC. The group responded by unanimously voting to endorse the memo. When it was released yesterday the memo was addressed to the Co 11 e g e 'Council with copies to Norwine, Elmendorf, Council members and the chairman of the SEC. The memo reads.m part: "One man less tlian 20% of the night, even a man as capable as Officer Ritchie, can do little to assure privacy and safety, especi:ill.y of female students. "The eirl's residence halls are (continued on page 3 column 4) Faculty Discusses Four-year System Members of the faculty discussed Wednesday adoption of a four-year system for the college "similar to the quarter system. According to President John Elmendorf, the Board of Trustees, in its annual meeting Monday and Tuesday, authorized the faculty to investigate the plan. Characterizing the Wednesday meeting as "quite a meeting" Pres ident Eime!dorf described the system under discussion as a "two track system." He said it would be possible under the plan for students to graduate in three or four years. He termed the system "a reasonable facsimile of the quarter sys tem." He said it does not compromise the idea of students finishing at their own rate. The president said the matter was still in the study phase. The faculty, he added, is going to get "a working group and look at things. He said the program, which would r e qui r e "retiming and respacing study periods," could not be instituted until the fall of 1967. President Elmendorf added the faculty "hopes to make the system f 1 e xi b 1 e enough for criss-cross choices along the way. He also cited "wonderful possibilities for study abroad" under such a system.


Page 2 Editorially Speaking Wallace Affair: Testimony To Alabama's Foolishness As controversy over student government continues to rage throughout the campus, it might be worthwhile to step back for a minute and look at how the professionals are doing. Not all is well, as we see it. Specifically, The Catalyst points to this week's Alabama Democratic primary, in which Lurleen Wallace ran away from nine other candidates, ranging in ideology from very liberal to very conservative. The results of the "contest" are testimony to the remarkable popularity of Governor George Wallace. The results are testimony perhaps to the power of the race !Wd the results are testimony to the foolishness that 1s poss1ble of a free electorate. "GIRLS HAVE FELT THREATENED BY POTENTIAL MOLESTERS AND ACTUAL VOMITERS" Alabama state law prohibited Governor Wall ace from running again for re-election. Openly b r a_z e 1 y, he is seeking to circl.Uilvent that law by his wife for that office. Neither the governor nor h1S wife has made secret of his intentions--another term for George Wallace. We do not question Governor Wallace's personal or ideological qualifications. However, there have been a reason for limiting the successive terms wh1ch the governor may serve. Apparently, neitherthe Wall aces nor the voters of Alabama seem to care. Many seem to consider the matter a very preposterous joke. We're waiting to see who has the last laugh. Residents Are Right The faculty residents are validly concerned for the security and safety of the students. There is repeatedly real annoyance--if not real danger--from people who wander onto the campus with intentions less than ideal. The obse!Vations and recommendations made by the faculty residents, and fully endorsed by the Student Executive Committee, are both true and well-taken. The Catalyst, and, we are sure, all students are grateful tothem for their energ to speak out. Once again, however, only part of a greater problem is being singled out for comment and criticism. Inactivity on the part of college employees in eliminating even one of the less expensive conditions leading to the feeling of insecurity is somehow characteristic. For the same reason barbed wire hangs from posts long after it has c e as e d to function in its original purpose; cleaning of student rooms by the maids is often only perfunctory; the oarkin2 lot holds as much water after a rain as does the stagnating pond south of the dorms; and street behind the dorms will probably continue eating its way through tires as long as its immediate neighbor to the west did. The Catalyst was told some time ago the purpose of the electric wires buried on all sides of the residence courts was to provide lights all around the building. Since those wires have been put in, enough time has elapsed to create the light fixtures directly from mineral ore. There is probably a good reason work has not continued on this project. is there good reason for the apparent general laxity with which the east campus is maintained? Mr. Miller and the other faculty residents are to be commended for their concern about student safety. Theme m .. bers of the SEC are to be commended for sharing and endorsing this concern. We hope we can commend someone in this space next week for solving the problems pointed out.

(Signed) Allen Whitt Esther Lynn Barazzone Sam Treynor Lowe Stays Four Hours In Haiti Jail First-year student John T. Lowe, who is spending the independent study period in Haiti, wrote The Catalyst this week about "my first (and I hope last) run-in with the Haitian police. "In Haiti, 11 he continues, "you don't know if you've done anything wrong until after the fact. Ilearned the hard way that it is necessary for an 1etrangere1 to have authorization to leave the Port-au-Prince area. "While w a 1 kin g to the market with the house boy, an army man asked me for my papers. I had none; thus began my four hour stay in the Haitian jail while waiting for the commandant who w o u 1 d arrive in the next fifteen minutes. "It was really a rather pleasant visit; like all Haitians, the police are just as friendly. I also realized that having an authorization was for my own safety. It serves the two-fold purpose of letting the gov-emment-know exactly I was if for som-e strange reason I didn't showup at the next check post.

May 6, 1966 The Catalyst Elmendorf Tells Board Evidence Of Progress President John Elmendorf told the Board of Trustees Tuesday that during the first eight months of his tenure he had found evidence of growing maturity, a high level of intellectual activity, and a continuation of innovation on the campus. RepOrting at the first annual meeting of the board since he took office last September, Dr. E 1m end or f -said a start hadbeenmadeto strengthen the academic program, that there has been a noticeable steadying of student attitudes, and that the faculty commitment to the college has been remarkable. Greatest problems of the college remain in the area of finances, he repOrted. However, each year the co 11 e g e continues to grow and growth reduces inefficiency. Pres ident Elmendorf also said that time allows the college to attain better standing in the educational community through accreditation and other standards which affect the gift potential of the college. "If adequate financial support can be found for the next two years," he said, "the.prospects for long-term stability and growth are very good. He said that the construct1on of physical plant for present needs will l31gely be completed by next fall. The year 1967 will see mostly planning for the future with some new buildings to be ready by the fall of 1968. He reported to trustees that students are planning further study of their internal mechanisms for selfgovernment with assistance from the student Student Elmendorf mor e, he said, "seems to be sound and he reported that there have 1been relatively few serious disciplinary problems. A growth in faculty numbers next year was forecast to accomodate the larger student body, and he that staffing of the faculty--particularly in the areas of the sciences --would remain a difficult task. A review of the entire first year program at New College will be Davis Reveals Debate Session Possibilities Vice President Paul Davis revealed that New College may be the site of a "brain-storming session" on small-campus development in the near future. "A specialized foundation," he said, "has expressed real interest in sponsoring a 'brain-storming session' in the near future at which a variety of experts would spend two or three days discussing and debating ideas for optimum development of small college campuses." The Board of Trustees endorsed the idea at its meeting this week, Mr. Davis told The Catalyst, and the college plans to go ahead and set the session up as soon as possible. Included among the "experts" will probably be businessmen, archi tects, college administrative officials, and representatives of the administration, faculty, students, and trustees of New College. contemporary art ,.

"This has been an exciting and positive year. The students, faculty, staff and friends of New College have matured and have given much of themselves to assure the college's growth. Intellectual activity has been at a high level, and the arts and music have been a real part of camp us life. Innovation continues and no one can say there is any stagnation here," he concluded in his report. Philosophy Tutors in the Booker School tu toring program gave a May p o 1 e party for the tutees Wednesday afternoon. Students prepared for the occasion by wrapping a pine tree on the east campus with crepe paper of various bright colors. Student s Excel On GRE Exams By KENJI ODA Official results received this week for GradUQte Record Exams (GRE) taken by second-year philosophy and literature maJOrs indicate students here could give seniors anywhere stiff competition. The mean score for eight New College philosophy students 730 .on a 950 scale. A score of 720 a student in the top 3% of semor philsosphy students throughout the country. Three of the eight New College students scored above 800, and the lowest score was a very respectable 590. In literature, s i x t e e n students fook the GRE and averaged 603, which is a better score than those achieved by 70% of the nation's senior literature students. The GRE's are given each year to college seniors, and scores are used by graduate and professional s c h o o 1 s much the way College Board exams for high school students are used by college admissions departments. Second-year students here were given the tests as part of their qualifying examinations a few weeks ago. Dr. Arthur Borden, chairman of the Humanities Division, expressed a thought which must have struck all concerned! "The students did so well now imagine how they'll do in anothe; year, when they will be taking the real thing. The second-year students here have begun what is the equivalent to the junior year in conventional institutions. ular showing by New College literature majors, Dr. Borden, who is also professor of literature, said he felt this reflected a r e 1 at i v e rather than an absolute weakness. He said literature students elsewhere would have on the ave1:age as good a program as is available here; in contrast, he said, he felt the philosophy program here was superior to those of most other institutions. Although standardized tests of this sort are always questioned as to their validity, it seems significant that both Dr. Borden -and Dr. Bergg,:a n found a general correlation between the GRE S'COlC$ and the tests made up by the New College faculty, which represented the second half of the qualifying exams in those fields. When asked by The Catalyst what effect if any, the GREresults. would on the handling of the programs at New College, Dr. Borden replied: "The results will have a direct effect on programs next year. We're waiting to see exactly where the gaps are, and then we'll design next year's program to help fill them. Dr. Douglas Berggren, professor of philosophy, was jubilant over thepelformanceo!hisstudents.

Spanos responded affirmatively when 01eves pointed out the car hadneverbeen registered in Spanos' name. Lamartine was asked if he agreed with Spanos' testimony and he replied he did. Leonard Lewis was then called on to testify. He said he "saw the entire episode" and took photographs. He added, however, he "did not take the photographs for legal action," but because he knew some of the boys involved and thought "they would be ashamed to see the pho1Dgraphs in six months or aye ar .''

U.S. 41 Jf..'._ d-;1J 2:v.d. a-} tvne Last week, Agent 68 was assigned to find and, if necessary, destroy the nefarious Dr. Yes, who is suspected of a plot to demolish College Hall. Our brave hero hired a boat and then, with the aid of a beautiful but mysterious girl, set off towards a small island in Sarasota Bay on whid. stands the fortress of Dr. Yes .. As the boat cut through the smooth surface of the bay at night, I turned to the girl who had appeared so mysteriously to guide me. Besides the fact that she was beautiful and was wearing a bikini, I could tell nothing about her. "Uh ... what's your name?" I asked. "Nevah Feah," she said. "My friends call me Nev." "Why did you offer to help guide me?" I asked, suspiciously. "I'm with the Sarasota Welcome Paulson Wagon. We help newcomers to this area in whatever ways we I believed this explanation instinctively. Besides, she had just put her arms around me in what was obviously a gesture of simple friendship. "How well do you know my old friend Dr. Yes?" I asked. "I don't know Jerry at all, 11 she said. "He's a very secretive man. Few know him well." "Yes, he was that way when 1 knew him too," I said. '1Is it true that the walls of his house are ten feet thick, that it is surrounded by a lagoon filled with man-eating pi r an h a, that all the plants and trees outside are poisonous, and the entire island is mined?" "When you live in a resort area, yousometimeshave to take measures to guard against unwanted visitors. But don't worry. We'll get in to see him, she said, kissing me violently. Be in g a true secret agent, my mind was working constantly. By putting myself into Nevah's arms-hands--lhad apparently gained entrance into Dr. Yes fortress. But what would I do once I was inside? !decided on acunningplanin which I would pose as a reporter from What to See and Do in Sarasota. Perhaps by this ruse I woUld bea.ble to obtain the information I needed to determine if Dr. Yes was responsible for the violence at New College. Suddenly, agigantic black shape loomed before us. It was the castle of Dr. Yes! A stark, ugly fortress, it looked cruel and savage in the darkness. "It c ert ainl y is ugly," I said. "Yes," N e v ah answered. "It's an exact copy of the TwentyThird Street Armory in New York. Nevah, seeming to know exactly where she was going, guided the boat into a hidden inlet which turned into a river flowing underneath the very foundations of the castle. "How come you're so familiar with the island?" I asked her. "I used to have the paper route, she replied. She guided the boat to a dock and cut off the motor, then motioned for me to follow her. She led the way into a stone tunnel, then up some steps and apparently into the house itself. As we walked, I noticed the unusual decorations on the walls. They were covered entirely with press clippings derogatory to New College. There were news stories, ... }'lla3-... &/ tJdl'-.._ 9 Q .... .... THE LIMETREE irate letters to the editor, and entire issues of The Catalyst. This certainly indicated a certain animosity toward us, but did not prove Dr. Yes was responsible for the bomb in g s and other foul deeds. When I asked Nevah about the clippings, she merely replied, "Dr. Yes takes a great interest in American education." Finally, we reached the end of the corridor, and Nevah announced that this was Dr. Yes' study, and the doctor was inside. J paused outside the door. I was nervous, but had the purpose of my mission clearly before me. I knocked on the door. A voice told me to enter, and, opening the door, I got my first look at the notorious Dr. Yes. He was busy blowing up a model of the East Campus dormitories. Dr. Yes was a small, dark, cruel-looking man, with a patch over one ofhis eyes. Gazing around the room, I saw models of time bombs, vials of poison, elaborate sabotage plans, maps of the New College campus, lists off acuity and students. There seemed to be enough proof here. Then, in a cruel voice with the trace of an accent, Dr. Yes spoke. "Howdoyoudo? You must excuse me--l was busy with my hobbies. Some men have electric trains .... Thank you, Neva h. That was a job well done." "What? 11 I cried, staring at the beautiful girl. "It's true. I work for Dr. Yes." "No! Then you were never with the Welcome Wagon, Nevah?" "Nevah. 11 I had been trickea. I was in grave danger, andiknewit. Dr. Yes took my gun away from me. "There's some mistake," I protested. "I'm actually--" "There's no point in lying," said the cruel voice.
