Volume III, Number 7 Published by Students of New College, Sarasota, Florida October 21, 1966 faces 'Double Crisis,' President Saxs *** *** *** NC Stands Behind which supports the college. Spealdng to third-year students, members of the student government and candidates for office, Elmendorf told of a loss of confidence in the college by residents of the area because of unfavorable impressions caused by the students. The president also wrote a letter to the students on the subject "survival," which was distributed Monday. In his talk, Elmendorf said there is a "reluctance to support the college" on the part of some persons for a "variety of reasons. He said the reluctance is based in part on "isolated incidents." "P eo p 1 e who have visited the campus have found that they didn 1t find what they expected, he said. He cited the often unseemly activities of students in the main room of College Hill as part of what they found. He said, "I thought it was time everyone became aware there is a relationship between the way we treat each other and the impression of the college. 11 About student observance of the r u 1 e s, Elmendorf said titere is a t e n d en c y toward "everyman for h i m s e 1 f and the devil take the hindmost." Concerning the proctor,. he said, Elmendorf "I am very how effective he isn't. Most of the people who asked for a pro<1or have done everything they could to see the proctor be meffective." The president charged "the people of the student govemment show a singular distaste for doing anything about the rules once they are made." Relating the problem of student behavior and support from the comm unity he said there is "very dcfinitely a problem of finding supporters for this college who visit the college and will still support it. II "If we washout the soreheads and the nuts we still have people who believe in the kinds of things we believe in who are repelled, embarrassed and disgusted when they arc on this campus. 11 The president pointed out, howe v e r "if we can get visitors in class then we've got no problem. 11 He said the problem arises when visitors visit other parts of the campus. 11 TI1erc is quite a bit of sympathy, 11 he said, "on the part of the faculty for what goes on here. He said, "the geographical situa tion of the dormitories puts you behind the eight-ball, very definitely. II The image the nearby area has for the college is so bad a "couple of student changes with other schools have fallen through, 11 according to the president. (Continued on page 2, column 2) The Pompeii Room of College Hall was crowded Wednesday evening as the "old" and the "new" SEC's gathered in a transitional meeting. Several visitors were also present. Judicial Election Fills Government The election yesterday of five students to the newly formed Judicial Committee completed the first election of student govemmcnt under terms of the revised Student Executive Committee charter. Elected as at-large members to the Judicial Committee were third-year students Charles Raeburn and Richard Waller and second-year students Dale Hickam and Lee Wallingford. Second-year student Steve Hall, who served on the now defunct Disciplinary Committeelastyear, was elected to chair the Judicial Committee. In other balloting during the past two weeks, the nine-member SEC and its chairman were elected. Representatives on the SEC are: Tim Dtmsworth, Rachel Findley, David Pini, Class of 167; Steve Hall, Jerry Neugarten, Kenji Oda, Class of 168; Lee Crawfort, Jon Shaughnessy, Katie Smith, Class of '69. By polling the highest number of votes in their respective class elections, Dunsworth, N eugarten, and Shaugnessy also eamed seats on the College Council. Second-year student Mike Cassell was last week elected chairman of the SEC. At-large meMbers of the Judicial Committee were elected for fullyearterms. Othermembersof student government will serve halfyear terms. The new SEC took office Wednesday evening. The Judicial Committee officially took over the duties of the Disciplinary Committee last night, and the new committee's first meeting has been tentatively scheduled for Monday. Election supervisor Kenji Oda noted yesterday that student turnout in the elections was "impressive." At least 75% of the students voted in each off our separate ballots held during the past two weeks, he said. Ballet Tonight The fourth ballet series of the Florida Ballet Company. Inc., will be presented tonight, tomorrow, and Sunday at the Asolo Theater. Students, Editor To Pursue Image An editor of the Chicago Tribune and two students will pursue the elusive New College image when they join in a panel for tonight's forum. Sponsored by The Catalyst, the forum is entitled "Who's Afraid of Mack Thomas?" or "Who Killed the New College Image?" Clarence G. PePeterson terson, associate editor of the Chicago Tribune Magazine, will be a guest along with SEC Chairman Mike Cassell and third-year student Charles Raeburn. The forum will be moderated by Tom Todd. The idea of the forum is to explore, with the he 1 p of an offcampus agent, some of the recent uproar to hit the campus about the college and students. Cites 'Personal uty' Student Executive Committee c h a i r m an Mike Cassell took a strong stand Wednesday on the enforcement of student rules. Saying, "I feel it is my personal responsibility to enforce whatever rules students make, Cassell indicated he intends to report any violations of the rules he sees and urged other SEC members to do the same. He also pointed out, "I view this not as bowing to administration pressure." After the president's address to students Monday, Cassell indicated he had intended, even before the president spoke, to deal with the problems outlined by Elmendorf. Cassell said, "The reason I'm doing this is to show that the student body and the student govern ment can exhibit some integrity. He said Elmendorf was upset "about the fact that he couldn't tell any one that students are being honest with themselves. 11 Insisting, 111 don 1t want to s e e anyone kicked out of school, 11 Cassell said, "the only thing I can see for the student government to do is what the students have charged it with--and that is enforce the rules." Cassell said he considers enforcement of the rules a "two-edged" sword. He said the school will have to decide what facts arc pertinent in the discussion of lack of integrity and the relationship of the community to the affairs of the school. First-year representative Lee Crawfort asked, 111 we change the rules will we be vetoed?" In response, Assistant Dean Arthur Miller offered a "s k e t c h of history 11 for those at the meeting. Miller outlined the background behind the vote last year in which students voted for student enforcement of administration-set intervisitation hours. He said at one time students "did have the prerogative to set their own student rules, but lost it after they did not enforce their rules. He concluded it is "unlikely" students can the intervisitation hours. He said, however. "I see no real move on the part of anyone to make the hours earlier. Cassell also discussed student behavior in College Hall, which Elmendorf had pointed out as one of the greatest causes of negative impressions on visitors to the college. He said the problem is students considerthe main downstairs room to be a student lounge although "practically every visitor toth e college goes through there. "What you see when you come in is not disconcerting to students but I can see why it v.ould be to visitors, Cassell said. Denby Bamett, an observer, com mented, "It1sfairlyobvious, we're going to have to adjust our conduct or lose money. Ron Kronenberg also an observer, added, "If it's obvious anarchy is running loose we're going to money. Vice president Paul Davis, who attended the meeting, said ''There's JUst no good solution to that problem now. The whole building is open to the public. Miller said the completion of Hamilton Court should solve many problems of this nature since a snack bar is included in the court and will serve as a student lounge. He summarized the problem of students in College Hall this way: "One quality t>vhich causes Cassell reactions), I suppose, is bareness. The other is horizontality. Students had been criticized both for bare feet in the main room and for lying on the furniture and the floor. (Continued on page 2, column 1) Committee Reduces Stu dent Dance Fee Studentswill be chat"lZed 50 admission to the Monster Mash, a Halloween costmne dance, instead of one dollar as originally planned. The student social committee announced this reduction this week as preparation continues for the informal dance, set for Oct. 29 in the Sanford House. Arrangements have been made with some faculty wives to allow interested students to use their .kit chens :md bake cookies for the dance. A sign-up sheet has been tacked on the reception center bulletin board. Also, the Student Activities Fund Committee voted Tuesday to grant the social committee $160 to pay for a band. (The Stwent Executive Committee must approve the grant.) Plans call for informal dane in g from 9 pm to 1 am. At 1, a horror movie will be shown. Directed by Miss Jean Spear, who conducts a b a 11 e t class for several New College girls, the series will include Degas Dancers, Pas de Deux, Harlequinade at the Asolo and Pas de Quatre. A number of New College girls will have minor roles in the program. SEC chairman Mike Cassell, left, reads off ballots from Tuesday's SEC election. Tallying the votes are Laurie Paulson, center, and Kay Moller. The Galaxies, a Tampa rhythmand-blues group, will provide the music.


Catalyst Editorial A Hard Road Mike Cassell told the Student Executive Committee Wednesdaythe reason he is going to enforce the student rules is "to show that the student body and the student government can exhibit some integrity. 11 This statement is in itself a beginning of the demonstration of that integrity. Cassell has setout a hard road for himself and for the SEC. Bill Chadwick, for example, speaking as a long-time chairman of the Student Disciplinary Committee, said, "my experience has shown it's almost impossible to be a member of the community and to follow the policy outlined by Mike. 11 Indeed it was almost impossible before. But Cassell's policy will, we believe, effect a change in our comnumity so that it will no longer be nearly impossible to follow such a course. Once such a policy is begtm., it becomes easier for more people to aid in the enforcement of the rules. More important, however, is the ultimate change the new chairman and the new govemment will bring about. They will, by pursuing a hard line policy against violators of the r u 1 e s, eventually make such a policy unnecessary. This can be done in one of two ways: either everyone will begin to obey the rules as they now exist or the students will change the rules--to others which they will obey more readily. Whichever way this ultimate change is wrought, the increased honesty and "integrity" which will result should bring about definite and necessary changes in the predicament of the college. Mike Cassell has, indeed, set a hard road for himself and the SEC. The Catalyst offers hhn its wholehearted support. We hope others, as well, will make sure he does not walk alone. Cassell (Coutillued from page 1) Thefbstconcemof the new SEC, which wa:; seated after the old group had taken care of the rolZine business, was a complaint by a student about the conduct of the proctor. Miller said, in reply to tbe complaint, "We've been in consider able trouble with the proctor situation. 11 He pointed out the frequent changes which had taken place and the propensity of the weekend proctor for sleeping and staying in the television room. The present week-night proctor, James MUl}Xty, has recovered the record player which wa:; missing for three weela, Miller said, and he also "ran down a dramatic incident of violation of intervisitation. 11 He requested the SEC to take the complamt "under advisement." Former Disciplinazy Committee chairman Bill Chadwick said Murphy ''tends to be the best of the bunch" of procto:rs who have been on campus. He pointed out Murphy had 30 years of experience on the Poughkeepsie N. Y., police force as a possible reason for the methods cited in the complaint. Second-year representative Jerry Neugarten moved to endorse therehiring of Bob Ritchie as campus proctor. The motion was changed to urge the administration to "ser iously consider Ritchie's application" for the job. Miller said he was unsure of the official level of consideration of Ritchie's return.

To do otherwise (tban enforce tbe rules) is morally degrading. 11 In the letter, Elmendorl' told stu dents ''We are absolutely dependent on the good regard of the people of Sarasota and Manatee counties." He said, "the basic rules are very simple and are certainly not new. 11 Students, he wrote, "are expected at all times to conduct yourselves with full consideration of the rights of others and to dress in a manner appropriate to the occasion, both on and off campus. 11 A detail of this rule he did not leave to the students to fill in was "Co 11 e g e Hall is not a private lotmge, but our most public building. II Elm endorl' cone! uded the letter by saying, "We have at New College a remarkable opportunity to build ;m institution based on genuine intellectual and academic freedom. .. I ask you to treasure the essen tial, not the superl'icial, and respond with good judgment to a crisis of our own making." A Statement F rom the Chairman Article V Sec. B of the constitution of the Student Executive Committee states in part: "The chairman shall ensure that all enactments are carried out. 11 There is no reason why this should not be. There are enactments of the student body which have not been carried out as conscientiously as they might be. This will cease. I feel a personal res pons i b i 1 it y, both as an upperclassman and as a member of the student govemment, for the "level of anarchy" in the residence courts. I think that most of the problem stems from the possibility that there are a number of new students who are not aware of precisely what is expected of them 1n terms of social conduct. This is not their fault, it is the fault of the upperclassmen, the fault of the student government, and, pemaps ftmdamentally, the fault of the engineers of Orientation. The first two of these groups should now set about correctting the situation. The role of the government will be simply to discharge those responsibilities which were placed on its shoulders by its electorate, The student rules will be enforced by the student!'.. This follows from the fact""tliat they made them and it woUld be irresponsible to expect some other par ty to enforce them. There are presently six student rules, and each memberoftbebody should be familiar with them and observe them himself and report violators. I am certain that not every student will do this but I quite honestly believe that every student who calls himself mature' or responsible (first-class mind) is obligated to. Your student govern ment feels this obligation and intends to see to it that the rules are observed. What this means to me is that if I witness an infraction I am going to inform the party involved that it would be in his best interest that the activity cease and if it recurs I will be forced to bring the matter before the Judiciary Committee. This will be hard for me to do because I don't agree with some of the rules, but it is a matter of the 1ntegrity of the student government. I expect other members to do likewise. Thil; does not preclude the possibility that the rules may be changed, It would be foolish to expect the students to obey a rule the necessity of which they denied. The point is that in a referendum last year the students felt the rules were necessary. Personally, I feel that most of the rules are perl'ect and reflect the good sense of the student body. Sections B and C of Rule 3 hours of intervisitation) are, I think, tm.necessary, morally reprehenSible, logically absurd, and wiversally hilarious. This is irrelevant to the question of enforcement. They are student rules; rules which the students have charged me with enforcing and I will observe them and enforce them as long as they are. I will whatever the students want. I will enforce their rules; I wlll not enforce anyone else's. This staten;ent _is intended to insure that students are aware of the gravity of the situation. I do not want to be responsible for getting someone in trouble who did not know what the score was. Now you know. I. realize that many students will probably think that I am out of my mmd, or have sold out, etc. If you do not like the way things smell your representatives are available 24 hours a day for your comments.'

W. Griffin. Tbe Evaluation should be returned to the Natura 1 Sciences Divisional Secretary at the lab before 5 pm Friday, Oct. 28, not Wednesday as indicated on the evaluation. October 21 1966 Let ters Probation Defined To the Editor: The term "social probation" has been bandied around a few times already and has been applied to a few people without a complete definition being given for the benefit of new students. Perhaps this is the proper time to outline the possibilities of sentences for those who are found guilty of breaking student rules. Normally for the first offense a student will be given a warning that any further violations will in all probability be dealt with much more severely, butthat the student is being given a second chance. Another infraction of the same rule will usually lead to either another warning with "imminent social probation or occasionally s o c i a 1 probation, depending on the gravity of the situation. A second offense of a different nature from the first will usually lead to anothet warning or imminent social probation. Further infractions after imminentsocialprobationwill definitely 1 e ad to social probation and further infractions after social probation will very possibly lead to expulsion. Use of the w or d s "normally," "may," "will usually, '1 etc., above indicates that each case is decided on the relative merits and faults of the individual's situation. Social probation indicates possible expulsion on the next offense, butputs no other restrictions on the act i on s of the student. The JC does, however, reserve the right to infringe on certain student privileges when it feels that it would be the most proper sentence. In most cases, social probation also calls for a lHrcr to be sent to pa rents indicdting the situation. Warnings come directly from the J C, social probation must pass a two-thirds vote of the SEC, t:xpul sion both two-thirds vote in SEC and College Council. All decis i on s are appealable to the next higher body with appeal for ex p u 1 s i o n to the College Council. Finally, all sentences of social probation and imminent social probation have f i x e d, specified durations. I sincerely hope that my duties as chairman of the JC will be few. My thanks to those who voted for me. (signed) Stephen W. Hall Chairman, Judicial Committee Coli ege Will Fill Dangerous Fountains The fountains in the residence courts will be filled in and wed as planters, Planning Officer Ralph Styles said yesterday. Styles said an electrical engineer checked the fountains and reported that there is no way to make them "100% safe" electrically. A student was given a serious electrical shock a month ago when he accidently fell into one of the fountains. The fountams have meanwhile been drained. Styles said the wiring plan of the fountains makes it impossible to insulate them "in a foolproof way. 11


October 21, 1966 The Catalyst Page 3 Author Speaks Out for Integrity By KEN]l ODA "I told them I felt the best interests of the students might be served bytellingthe trustees to take their money and their minister of bigotry and buy themselves a college elsewhere." Sonnd like a disgrnntled, disillusioned student speaking his mind on the "crisis of integrity" issue? The s p e a k e r is not, as it turns out, a student, or a faculty member, or anybody at all who's formally connected with the college. The above quote is an excerpt from "The Death of Edge, 11 which, believe it or not, is a "highly personal account" of one author's experience with New College.

Chairman MI: C' Cassell said he would consider appointments to committees this week and submit them for approval at the next meeting. In committee reports, the SEC heard Disciplinary Chairman Bill Chadwick report three students had been disciplined by the committee. He said one had been given a warning, one was placed on imminent social probation and the committee recommended social probation for another. The social probation, which was given to a first-year student, was later approved by the SEC. The othertwosentences did not require approval. Karle Prendergast, chairman of the Social Committee and a member of the Student Activity Fund Committee, reported she had requested $160 from the SAFC for a dance being organized by the Social Committee_ The SAFC approved the request, Karle said, "with the stipulation that as much money be paid back as possible. Final approval o f the appropriation will be considered Wednesday, Cassell said, because under the provisions of the constitution at least 48 hours must elaps e before the SEC may approve the action of the SAFC. Food Committee chairman Tom Todd reported a regular hot meal will be setVed a week from Sunday instead of the usual buffet. He said Thomas Estep, managing chef, had expressed interest in changing thetimeofthe meal to accommodate students who are hungry because only brunch is se tVed on Sun day morning. The SEC recommended no change in the meal time. Todd also reported Estep is concerned by the amount o!food wasted by students. He quoted Estep as saying, "three garbage cans full is too much." He saic. Es'ep urges students t o "take all they can eat but eat all they take. The amount of food consumed is one reason why the kitchen is now being operated at a loss.

Cassell said the House Committee will begin to take steps to secure the retmn of these items to the kitchen, Todd indicated the Food Committee will be willing to help in the David Pini, a member of the Academic Committee reported that Tuesday's meeting was "mostly or gwerful trus-tees and tell them to take their financial support from theN ew College, as they had threatened, 11 he writes, "and then explain through this conntry's vast news media exactly why the New College came to be in financial difficulty, the whole story, names, all of it, and see what happened, see if there weren't a few people somewhere who would come flying with their assistance and support o::.ce they leamed the New College was not going to be the same old puppet, the same olddwnmy, wooden-lipping the same old meat lies. This is Thomas's main point. He speaks subjectively, .md emotionally. But what he has said has excited more than a few students and a little inspiration has been to go a very long way.

The President accused New College students of lacking integ. rity of being sloppy, rude, ana chiidish. Bui I knew this couldn't possibly be the truth. I had great faith in New Co 11 e students. "Who does he think he is, making these charges?" I asked. But rather than sit by idly, arguing in the courts, I decided to prove the President wrong, to go out and show what New College students are really like. The first students I encountered were fastening a large green road sign that said, "Bradenton, 8 Miles" to a royal palm. "Didn't that sign used to be on the highway?" I asked. Pau ls o n "Why, yes, said one the stu-dents, "but we felt that too few people on the campus had a really clearideaofhow far away Bradenton is. I t s a kind of p ublic ser vice."

"Well, we intend to sleep here all day." "By the way, 11 I asked. "what can y0u tell me about the treatment of. visitors by ew College students?"
