Editorially Speaking SEC Takes Strong Step Toward Good Government The Student Executive Committee has taken its greatest single step toward good student gov ernment at New College. The codification o student laws will remove much of the \Ulcer tainty which has plagued enforcement of those laws and ajudication ofthose who violate them. businesslike way. Robert's Rules are coming more into use with every meeting. The minutes are being Memos and the like are being put into the files. In short, there is an increasing semblance of order and direction becoming attached to the operations of the SEC. have contributed little to the progress of the organization. Accomplishments have been made IN SPITE of them instead of because of them. The codification of the laws was the result of direct and positive action by Ray Enslow. He proved the superiority of action by the individual over action by committee. Enslow has before been aleaderofthe SEC. Yesterday he recommended to his fellow members further improvements in the organization of the SEC which, if adopted will greatly increase its eficiency. Modes of procedure of the SDC are now formalized. This, too, will make student govern ment a more meaningful part of student life. The WlCertainty which has existed in this are:J has b,een the root of many com plaints by the administration about apparently "do-nothing government establishments, Just this one action greatly enhances the image of the SEC as an active and useful organization, For once something useful and lasting has come from an SEC meeting. The image of the SEC as a weekly bull session involving the "student leaders" is beginning to fade. There is emerging from the murky waters of confusion the head of a sleek, capable body, The sands of inactivity are beginning to blow away from the governmental sphinx. There was more than just this one good action taken at Wednesday's meeting of the SEC. The entire meeting was conducted in an almost We commend this new-folUld life of the SEC. We hope it continues. The progress that has been made by the SEC is due almost completely to the efforts of three of its members: Chuck Hamilton, Ray Enslow and Tim Dunsworth. The rest of the members Oluck Hamilton has been instrumental from the very beginning in organizing student gov ernment here, His recent propoal to clarify the SEC position on several important issues is representative of his interest and ability in the Volume II, Number 31 SAFC Gives Funds To Magazine At a meeting Wednesday night, the Student Activities Fund Committee (SAFC) awarded $30 to a group of students interested in publishing a monthly literary magazine. First-yearstudent Gary Williams, who represented the group in requesting the funds, said the money would be used to pay mimeographing expenses. Under the modes of procedure of the Student Executive Committee (SEC), of which the SAFC is a sub com'Tiittee, the SAFC 1 s dl'cision must be approved by the parent organll.ation. Kenny Miscmer, chairman of the SAFC, told Williams if the first issue was well-received, his committee would consider another proposal asking for enough money to have the magazine printed. Several observers joined the regular committee members at Wednesday's SAFC meeting to hear a request for funds for a literary magazine. The first issue of the magazine, co-edited by Williams, TQlll. Mantl!uffel, and Steve Waterman, will "hopefully" come out next week. There will be no charge for the magazine, and it will be distributed on campus only. College To Hire Guard In Near future According to Williams, the purpose of the magazine is to "encourage literary effort 11 and to give students a chance to express their "uncensored thoughts. 11 The reason no outside advertising will be sought to help pay expenses, he said, is that the magazine's circulation will be limited to the campus and that the editors want complete editorial freedom. Also discussed at the SAFC meeting were ideas for using the $47C v1hich is still in the student activities fund. o decisions were maie, but a meeting will be scheduled in the ncar future to consider proposals from the Social Committee. The college will probably hire a full time proctor and security officer in the very ncar future if students clarify the disciplinary role they expect the proctor to fill. P r 0 s i d c n t John Elmendorf told members of the College Council Tuesday, "We can have proctor here by Monday next if we want to. 11 Addressing the student mem bers of the council he said, "You can have one (a proctor) if you c :n1 tell me what he is going to do. 11 He said the board of trustees had authorized the hiring of a full-time off i c e r. Elmendorf assured the cou....,cil the is "not R:OinR: to get an amateur" for He s;;.iu .: ,.rodor's duties must be "spelled out.

He was told to have a pre liminary report at least by Tuesday. The president said students could have some voice in the hiring of the proctor. Student Executive Committee chairman Kcnji Oda Wednesday appointed Ray Enslow, Steve Hall, Bill Chadwick, and Steve Waterman "to speak for the SEC and the student body" in tl1e hiring of the proctor. Apparently they will be allowed to sit in on interviews with applicants for the job. Flmendorf said the proctor will be hired from a professional agency. He also said there will probably be two men who will "spell each other" on the job. He said he does not "know if (Offic cr Robcrt) Ritchie will. stay on yet." (Continued on page 2, column 1) SEC Codifies Student Laws ;fhe Student Executive Committee has codified all "real rules made by the SEC or carried over" to the SEC. There are six rules. They supersede all previous rules made by students. Second-year representative Ray Enslow instigated the action at Wednesday's meeting of the SEC. Noting that there are only six "actual student rules as such, he said, ''I tried to take those and put them in a form that I liked. All of them were adopted by the SEC with only a few changes. Most discussion came in connection with rule two concerning liquor. Enslow said, "Having never made public what rules we will or will not enforce smacks of false pretenses." Shortly thereafter he said, "Student private drinking is not a disciplinary concern of the SEC." Chuck Hamilton then withdrew a motion he made last week which, in part, provided "that the SEC and its appointed committees renounce any pretense of enforcing the Beverage Laws." The motion had been tabled for one week. Enslow then moved that the SEC adopt the rule as he read it, Firstyear representative David Allen seconded the motion, As it was finally passed, the rule reads: "A No student shall consume, have in his possession, or be obviously under the influence of any alcoholic beverage, while he is on the public campus. B. Public campus referstoall areas of the campus to which all members of the college community, and/or the genera 1 public, have free access; i, e. the courtyards of the dormitories, Hamilton court, college hall, etc." Hamilton moved to insert the words "under the legal age" after the word student in section A. The motion was defeated 7-1. Hamilton then moved to add a section saying "outside the public areas enforl=ement will be by the administration." The motion failed for lack of a second. Enslow's motion passed 7-1, Hamilton voting against, the chairman not voting. Rules four, five and six were passed unanimously as a group with 'Only minor changes. In other action, the SEC: --unanimously dissolved the Student Disciplinary Reform Committee on a motion by Ray Enslow, who chaired the committee; --unanimously approved the ap pending of the warrants section of the Bill of Rights to the SEC modes of procedure (making it binding on the SOC as well as the SEC); --elected David Allen chairman for the next four weeks. The rules arc printed in their entirety on page S. Students Circulate Recall Petitions S e v e r a l students announced to The Catalyst last night their intention to begin circulation of petitions to recall various members of the Student Executive Committee. Tentative plans called for circulation of all petitions togetherthis afternoon. At press time students who indicated they intend to circulate the Treynor Alexander petitions included Sam Treynor and Allen Whltt, second-year students; Lany exander, Jim Bowen, Mike Cassell :p1d Ted Shoemaker, firstyear students. Further additions to the li were seen as "highly probable last night. the terms of the Constitution students can only recall rcprc'sentatives from their own classes. Treynor indicated he was specifically interested in recalling Bill Chadwick and Karle Prendergast. Proposals from first-year students interested in recall ranged from recalling only two or three first-year representatives to rcc ailing all four. Various rc asons for the recall were given, including absence and disinterest on the part of the members. "W c had several purposes in mind in instituting this new policy," said Dr. Rollin Posey, chairman of the Division of Social Sciences. "One of these is to see if students who participate will find that an examination of a particular topic Dr. Posey said the selection of students to man the panels was determined mostly at random, but that in a few cases an attempt was made to utilize special knowledge which a particular student might possess in a particular area. The Booker School tutors entertained their tutees at College Hall Wednesday afternoon at a music-and-dancing party, Kenji Oda, chairman of the supervisory committee, which will be in charge of making the pet it ions available for signature and of any elections held as a result of the recall indicated this morn in g it wouid be about three weeks before an election could be held.


Page 2 The Catalyst I L--_ Editorially Speaking SEC Takes Strong Step Recall ? (Continued from page one) areaofstudentgovemment. Hamilton (alongwithEnslow) has demonstrated time and again his ability to grasp Lhefar reaching impli cations of often complex situations. Far too frequendy, far too many of their colleagues have demon strated their lack of this ability. Tim Dunsworth h::.s proven to be a capable secretary (and as eific ient as the organization has allowed). Although not as vocal as Enslow and Hamilton he has nonetheless demonstrated his ability for clear and far-seeing thought. Unfortunately these are the only three members of the SEC we can c om mend without reservation. Bill Chadwick has done an outstanding job on the Student Dis ciplinary Committee. His latest achievement has been the drawing up of cogent and logical procedures for that body. He will have to work very hard in the future, however, to improve his record of absenteeism from SEC meetings. The importance of following this first step with others equally worthwhile cannot be overemphasized. New College is striving for excellence in all areas of its endeavor --why should not students strive for excellence in student governmen as well? Enslow Asks Year Term For SEC Chairman Ray Enslow, second-year representative to the Student Executive Committee, distributed a memo dated May 10 to all members and advisors ofthe SEC which proposes, in part, that the position of chairman be made a year-long occupa tion." His memo goes on to say, "We would then have some sense of continuity from week to week and even month to month in the activities and planning of the SEC, and the chairman would have an opportunity to get the hang of the job before he is rep). aced. The complete loss of continuity in the monthly change-overwould be eliminated, and, more important 1 y, there would be one person who would be held responsible for seeing that people perform their jobs as they are supposed to. 11 Enslow adds, "I would also like to see the chairman given the power to appoint and remove any member of any subcommittee as he sees fit, subject to some rati fication procedure by the SEC as a whoie. And it is truly pitiful," he continues, "to see om chairman feel obligated to ask the permis sion of the entire stc before he can write a memo or make a phone call." He said he intends to make specific proposals soon with regard to these ideas, apparently by May 18. Students Visi Distant Lands The beginning of gamma term this week brought the retum of many New College students from their independent study ventures in distant lands. Am on g those returning are Jet Lowe, Haiti Leslie Shockner and Bill Ralphs, Spain; Glenda Cimino, Hope Cole, Irving Benoist, Joan Schnabel, and Anna Navarro, Guatemala; Ann Rogers and Liz Ste phens, Mexico. Dick Ogburn is still in Costa Rica. Students studied a wide range of subjects, ranging from weaving to problems of social work. The Student Executive Committee needs new blood. If" needs members who axe more interested in student government than rome of those now serving. It needs members who are willing to devote more time to its activities than some of those now serving. True, some ofthe problems facing tire SEC could be alleviated by the election for a full year of a strong chairman. A capable executive officer could eliminate much of the boondoggle and make the committee more efficient lri its operations. Yet*there still exists the possibility dte SEC could be improved as a worthwhile, functionin_g organization, if some of the current members were replaced. Today several students from both classes will initiate recallofthose members of the SEC whose position they feel could be better filled by someone else. Their ideas deserve careful consideration by the students. In deciding whether to support recall of any SEC members, we submit these questions should be considered by the mem bers of the electorate--the students. Is a better SEC member one who has expressed interest in building a student government or one who has said he does not really care about stude'nt government, Are the interests of students best served by representatives who are willing and able to contribute ideas and opinions to discussions of proposed legislation or by those who remain silent meeting after meeting? Will the soundness of the SEC profit more from members with a record of absenteeism or from those who will attend the meeting? Will the SEC become more efficient and more useful with members who have actively sought election (because they care) than withthose who were elected with little effort on their part? Ask these questions. Compare those who want to run with those who are now serving. If chances for improved student government are betterwiththosewbo have decided they can help than with those who have served this long without help ing significantly--then recall and replacement is justified. The SEC needs more members like the three singled out for praise on the front page of this issue. None of the other members comes very close. Some of those who seek to ,nm might. S-IJ Letters Dear Tom (the Editor), It's amazing what an absence for four weeks can reveal to a student about "things back home. I've often thought of how fortunate New College is to have a student newspaper that did not simply state "Published by students at New College ... in its staff-box, but actually has a newspaper that is independent of external influence, such as co 11 e g e administration funds. Previous 1 y hesitating to just out and out compliment those responsible for such an impressive undertaking, I now have the opportunity to say that I admire your dedication and, uh, vi g a h. You may, however, have the bull by the wrong appendage. It's obvious that such apothegms as the "fun damental rights ofman" are being (and should be) protected and publicised by your creation, and much of your criticism and comment has proved to be of benefit: helpful suggestion in some places, thought provoking thorns in others. Being able to read the course of four weeks debate and comment all at once, however, I wonder if maybe (the editor should be biased and opinionated, perhaps, but ... ) youhaven1t extended your editorial powers a bit too far. No, you don't fib--but onehastoread closely to make sure. 1 can point to one close example of an SEC member who "by not reporting that he had carried out the tasks assigned to him, wasted time and effort of his fellow SEC members and further delayed progress on the questions. One generally prefers to be relied upon to do "the tasks assigned to him," and feel safe in the knowledge that a response will soon be coming, particularly when dealing with others (Capt. Styles) who can also be relied upon to do so. (I might take this opportunity to point outthat Capt. Styles pays more attention to student needs than is genera 11 y acknowledged. The memos in que s t ion which were sent--concerning a larger allotment of towels, an ice machine and drainage of the swamp areas for mosquito extermination, and Letters submitted the writer's signo.ture will be considered for publication. Names wiU be withheld upon request. Letters will not be return cd and are subject to editing. The picture at right is one of the sights seen by Jet Lowe in Haiti. This huge, Haitian stone castle is one of many sights in many lands by many students. May 13, 1966 aladderremovedfrom the balcony of room 343--were all answered promptly with promises to do what can be done. The April 22 issue of The Catalyst failed to correlate the fact that "Waterman was gonna do that," and wh;t Waterman actually did). By portraying in bold type the small talk of an SEC meeting, I'll have to admit that we (collectively) soundedlike goons. You appealed to the student body (again, collectively) to 11 support its (the SEC's) effort at self-improvement .. if they (the student body) want a functioning, viable student government .... Maybe that's the bug, Tom--! mean, Mr. Editor--business you know--not a whole heap of students want the imposition of a functioning, viable student government. I don't. Is that lack of interest, Mr. Editor, that you refer to, Tom? Are SEC members being "intellectually dishonest when they realize t' .. lt, regardless of what "ought to be, some things just gotta be, to .keep our uastynasties in check? They must: they ran for an office that I didn't particularly relish the thought of holding. Can we make every decision, every move, in the right direction every time? The willingness to kill off a monster of our own creation does more credit to this ex periJnc,1t than we can ever hope that monster to give birth to. And, if protests against our own indWII:J:Y are inevi ab e, and even essential to the function of this undertaking, then there is perhaps no bad side-just interest at, and, finally, acceptance ofthat indecisiveness that advertises the frailty of our human nature. Is this realization that we a r en 1 t always right--our mde cision--synonymous with apathy? Perhaps you and I are trying to do the same thing in different ways. I'm inclined to bel'..eve that your method of factionin,:: the student body is not going to help much. I roared at Bill Ralph's letter to the editor, whenever it was. Your insertion of the (sic) notation in his obviously mocking essay illustrates a policy of yours that David Pini has criticized (of the SEC): "Why tryto convince us that a crisis exists when there is none?" His statement made me stop and think; does it mean anything to you Mr. Editor? Docs Mrs. Vujica's request that less attention be paid to triv ial student matters (you know, denial of the fundamental rights of man, that stuff) and more to the matters that concern people (uh, man) in general mean anything to you? "We ask him (me) now, why not step aside for someone who might have more interest?" I should have askedbefore,Tom: Who is "We?" We may be right, Mr. Editor.

This is necessary, he reports, because many application dead 1 in e s for fellowship awards come as early as September of the student's senior year.

Stature Raised New College's stature with other schools is continuing to improve, according to Earl Helgeson, assistant to the president. One indication of this trend is the college's listing in section III of the latest Educational Directory, published by the Department of He a 1 t h, Education and Welfare. C3J.leton, Swarthmore, the University of Chic ago, New York University, and Goddard College have accepted New College credits for transfer students. Also, various professional and graduate schools, including Yale Law School, have expressed "substantial interest" in students here, Helgeson said. Prof To BeOnTV An art critique featuring New College Visiting Professor of Art Syd Solomon will be shown over WTVT, Channel 13, tomorrow at 2 pm. Professor Solomon used the works of students at Florida Presbyterian College in St. Petersburg as a basis for the discussion of art on the program, "College Kaliedoscope. soc Changes Proxy Rules Revised modes of procedure for the Student Disciplinary Committee were presented to the. 'ltudent Executive Committee at Wednes day's meeting by SDC Chairman Bill Chadwick. The revisions involved two sections of the modes of procedure and were made at the suggestion of the SEC. Section six, dealing with substitutes for absent members, was amended as suggested by the SEC 1 as t week. It now reads: "The SDC will secure substitutes for members under the following conditions: a) the SDC member is not able to attend the mccting(s) in question. b) the SDC member is one of the principals in an action before the SDC. 11 Absent members will select their a 1 tern ate from a previously approved list. The m e m b c r being substituted for will reassume his duties as soon as possible. Chadwick presented to the SEC a list of 10 proposed alternates from which the SEC might select the alternates. He was told to recommend the ones preferred by the members of the SDC and to present the list at the next meeting. Section eight, dealing with v:ar rants to be issued for the gathering of evidence, was carried over to the next meeting for further discussion. Subsequently, however, the SEC adopted a warrant procedure which is binding on the SDC and supcrcedes any procedure it might establish. The SDC still must determine the exact procedure for issuing warrants. Construction on Hamilton Court has slowed down recently, due to a shortage of bricklayers.

La Belle N u sse W a tefproof Masca ra After what seemed like an eternity but was actually fifteen minutes, the door to my cell opened. Two Yes Men, armed with large revolvers, s t o o d at the door. One of t hem said that the doctor wanted t o see me inhis laboratory. There w a s no escape. One Yes Man marched in front of me and the other in back as I was conducted to the chamber of the evil madman. When I had entered the laboratory, Dr. Yes conducted me to an alcove where there were two easy chairs, and he indicated that I should sit in one. He pulled up the other chair, and began to speak. At last, Ihavemyheart'sdesire. I fin a 1 1 y have a New College student to d o with as I please. It is something I've hoped and prayed for night after night, and finally it h as c ome." I w a s scared, but wanted at least t o s how a !ac ade of courage, "You're a nut, Dr. Yes," I said, "Some may call m e mad," he said, w ith an e v i l glint in his eye, "but others will call me a benefactorforriddingtheworld o f the can rowth that i s New College, and of vermi n like you and your f e l low stuQ.ents. I was shocked, The last time I'd heard such a virulent diatribe had been from a fellow student, and he'd been upset about some old car. "You don 1 t really think," I said "that people will really support you and your murderous tactics?" "On the contrary," rep 1 i e d Dr. Yes, "I have received secret contributions from leading members of the community. "How in the world did you come tote ac h at New College, then?" 1 asked, hoping for a least a short time in which to think. "I had made quite a name for my seU in academic circles for my re teach on the reactions of human tottllte when 1 was offered NewColleae. Thoup edthe o cr. can't say n o n Muu1 1 ae-"Is that why you call yourself Dr. Yes? "Well, yes and no. I a l so like the sound of the name. Anywa y when I found out that they wouldn't let me carry out my research, even on animals, I cameto realize what kind of a place it was. And so my life since my dismissal has been devoted to New College's destruction. And I shall succeed. However, enough of this. I will tell you of your fate. This was the moment I had been dreading. Now I would find out in what horrible way I would die, Dr. Yes smiled, and continued. "For your death, I have devised an extremely ingenious and appropriate series of tortures, As a New College student, you will especially appreciate them. Do not expect to survive long. 1 w i 11 be interested to see just how long you do last." With that, Dr. Yes signaled to his henchmen, and they led me into an adjoining room, where I was strapped into a chair. My arms and legs were secure 1 y bound to the chair, and there was hardly enough slack in my bindings to allow me to struggle. The only other thing in the room was what apJ>eared to be a control panel, probably connected to some devices in the lab oratory. I had no idea what would happen, or in what manner the doctor would accomplish my death. I only knew I had to conserve my strength, and hold. out for as long as I could. For a few moments, nothing happened. Suddenly, I heard voices saying, over and over, "We don't have a We don't have a quorwn. 11 Suddenly, !realized what was happening. torture. It was an SEC meeting. The horrible sounds continued. I heard someone say, "Let's organize a' room arch. 11 It w;.s agony. I don't know how I withstood it, but somehow I did. But this was only the beginning. I felt a clawing at my legs. I was being attacked by twenty starving, unregistered cats! I triedtoshake them off me. tunately, the struggling I had done during the last torture had loosened mybondssomewhat, and !managed to protect myself. .B'u:t Dr. Yes did not give up. The lights dimmed. I was going to be a simulated candlelight dinner. Sudden-ly, cascaded from the ceiling of the room. It was just like when people put detergent in the fountain. I managed to catch a breath before the deluge began, however, and survived. Dr. Yes was not through. The room filled with noise. There was drunken singing, incoherent speaking, hysterical laughter, It was as if there was a party going on ncll:t door. But Dr. Yes had this time miscalculated. I merely did what I always had to do when there was a party going on next door. I fell asleep. But I was awakened abruptly. There were two figures in the now almost completely darkened room. This was the final torture. I was being attacked by the legendary potential m o I esters and actual vomiter s. Paulson With all the strength left in me, l managed to free one of my hands. 1 reached out and felled one of the potential molesters with a karate chop, grabbing his knife as he fell. With it, 1cut the straps and leaped up, finis.hingoffthe other molester. 1 rushed to the l;bor:ttory door aDd it open. Dr. Yes was and e master control panel he J .J.d used to produce the tortures. When he saw me, and the knife h, cried, "No, no!" "Yes, Yes," I answered, and s t art e d toward him. He gave a scream oft error, then pushed a button on the panel behind him. It was the destruct button. There was a loud expl osio n then nothing. Half the laboratory, and Dr. Yes, were now smouldering ruins There was nothing to do now but return to New College. Though I regretted his violent e1.d, I knew the world was well rid of the insane Dr. Yes. New College had nothing more to fear from his evil mind. And yet I wondered: what other dangers, ovhat other madmen would Ihavetoface, before my career a s a secret agent at ew College w a s over?

The Catalyst notes Bv Kenji Oda By MIKE CASSELL As I noted in yesterday's analysis of American music since Will Billings, this country has no music it can really call its own; what we lik9to call "American" music is in reality merely European music poorly masqueraded, and thus decadent. The one possible exception we mentioned was the music which began with the Negro blues singers and developed into to d a y' s j azz. We decided, however, that we could not honest 1 y count this as being "American" since the vast maJority of Americans h:1ve never heard it, or refuse to support it (as is evidenced by the mounting numbers of starving Jazz musicians on our city streets). I, however, am most pleased tO' reveal that last night I was random! y spinning the dial of my radio in search of the Lone Ranger (and Tonto) when, to my suiprise, I stumbled across a composition that w i 11 undoubted! y be the g rea. test thing since watermelon. The song I refer to is Bob Dylan's "Rainy Day Women #12 plus 35." The work begins with the ominous sounds offield drum, cymbals, and tambourine, bringing to mind visions of a gypsy ai'II)y marching to certain death. This percussion trio isjoined by piano, trombone, and harmonica, another trio, thereby bringing the total to six, d ouble that of the beginning! This ensemble plays for 12 measures, which, you will notice, is exactly twice the number of instruments. (Todayls music is so mathematically oriented that the masses may not fully appreciate it, but education will eventually reconcile this, we hope. ) In this section, the piano stands out splendidly, wandering on detached side JOur neys of its own, as i t were. Then, in the second chorus the instru ments are (dare I say it! ? ) JOg'ed by the voice of the composer ylan, who sings in a manner that reveals the influence of Richard T u c k e r, John Hurt, Hugh Island Hobby Shop 2 Miles Nettll ef Cellete oe 41 A r t Craft and Hobby Supplies Downs, and Johnny Walker, and yet is peculiar to Dylan, among others. The lyrics show a highly developed knack for the doublemeaning ( a over from Dylan' s Joycean period), dwelling particularly on the word "stoned. There is also obviously a strong Biblical influence here (typical of other greats, such as Stravinsky), constant 1 y alluding to Steven's misfortunes, but in a new, modern, exist e n t i a 1 light, with a ray of Cassell hopeful resignation, proving that the Church can speak to today' s youth. -The theme is repeated over and over (cf. Ravel's "Bolero"), drawing the listener into the Bacchian mood of the performets, who h ave t r e me n do us rapport, constant! y communicating with each other by means of spontaneous s c r e a m s shouts, and dropped cymbals. The effect is so captivating that the listener is forced to join in and s c r e a m w it h them to the end, which gradually dies hopefully away, in utter profundity (cf. Tchaikovsky Pathetique Symphony, II I movement, coda). Dylan will undoubtedly be the leader of the "new music" despite the cries of "Fake!", N o-talent!'1 "Academic!", "Ecch!", that will pour forth from the Establishment in a n attempt to gattypeggle the American p ublic. But don't worry, Bob; we're with you all the way, baby! Next week we will discuss alternativ es t o Pythagorean timing. Members of the Sarasota High School swim team pause fora minute during practice at New College pool. Swim Club To Use Pool The Sarasota Swim Club will practice in the college pool from 5:15 to 6:45, Monday through Thursday evenings, beginning June 13, according to Pete Odell, athletics co-ordinator. "This will be their only practice time," Odell told The Catalyst, "and meets will be held elsewhere." Odell also said the Sarasota High School swim team, which has been practicing in the college pool, held its last pra.ctice of the season yesterday. BusTo MJC The school bus will be available to students who will take the selective service draft deferment test tomorrow. The bus will leave the West Campus for the testing site, Manatee Junior College in Braden ton, at 7:45.

Also, said Dr. French, all firstyear students will be given the College Comprehensive Tests (CCT) the following weekend. The G RE's will be used as an over a 11 indicator of where New College stands in relation to other s c h o o 1 s in math and the social sciences, he explained, and the individual scores will not be placed on the official record. The CCT's, however, will be given as part of the first-year comprehensive examinations, and scores will be recorded. The CCT' s will be given a month before the .rest of the exams that will comprise the comprehensives so that scores can be determined and reported before students leave for summer vacation.
