Volume III, Number 8 Published by Students of New College, Sarasota, Florida October 28, 1966 Inauguration Ceremonies For Inauguration ceremonies for President John Elmendorf will be held Feb. 22, 1967, in the courtyard of the Ringling Museum. Much like a national presidential inauguration, Elmendorf's inaugW'ation will be "a ritual to install the president, 11 according to Information Officer F=an ArthW'. There will be a procession, speeches, and other ceremony, :in eluding the "swearing-in" of the president. Sir Patrick Dean, British ambassador to the U. S., will be guest speaker. Arthur estimated " 500011 people would be invited to the cere monies. "Several thousand are expected to attend, '1 he said. Aformal inauguration ball sponsored by the Women's Library Association for New College is scheduled for the night before in Hamilton Court. A special joint committee of trustees, faculty, and students has been charged with organizing the inauguration. Students on the committee were selected by Mike Cassell, chairman ofthe Student Executive Committee, with the SEC's approval. They are: Cassell, Dierdre Fennessy, JcrryNeugarten, Steve Nolgren, David Pini, Diana Shiphorst, and Devan Whiteside. Faculty members on the committee include Dr. Marion Hoppin, Dr. SEC Tables Move To Remove Limits On lntervisitation The Student Executive Committee tabled a motion Wednesday to remove the limits on the hours during which intervisitation is permitted. Introduced by Jeny N eugarten, after chairman Mike Cassell had indicated he would a motion to "delete sections B and C of rule three" (which limit the hours of intervisitation), the motion was seconded by !)avid Pini. RachelFindley and Lee Crawfort moved almost immediately to table the motion "indefinitely." The motion totable was approved tman imously. The action followed lengthy discussion during which Pini rc ad a petition he said he and others had circulated and then withdrawn. The petition offered an alternative to the existing intervisitation rules. The complete text of the proposal follows: "We the undersigned endorse and will enforce the following proposed intcrvisitation rules; that there be hours of 10pm to ?am on weekdays and 12 mid. to ?am on Fri. and Sa:. nights for all girls rooms and no hours for boys rooms; that the proctor be dismissed and there be only a secW'ity guard; that furnished social rooms be set up immediately in the 2nd and 3rd courts; that the role of faculty residents in student affairs be rcexexamined; and tha: the following remark once again preface the New College student code "Consideration for others is the underlying philosophyoflife at New College." Jon Shaughnessy said about the proposal, "A lot of students say they want this rule because they don't think it will be enforced and without a proctor there would be nothing to worry about. 11 her there is the thought that we would do something next week. 11 Cassell said the concept of an administrative rule and a student rule was"alittleclouded" bywhatMil ler h=>d saic:l. fiE> tf\lrl thE' Cf\TT>lT)it tee, "All the rules we have to do with are student rules. Cassell said, "One or two of them were kind of forced on us bythe admin istration," SEC Okays Commi t tees The Student Executive Committee approved Wednesday the appointment of members named to student committees by SEC chairman Mike Cassell. All appointments made by Cassell were approved by the committee without obJection. The chairman told the committee, "practically all committees were appointed on the recommendation of the chairmen. Named to the Academic Committee were John Cranor, chairman; Kay Moller, David Pini, Rachel Findley, Joan Schnabel, Irving Benoist, Jerry Michaels and David Tekler. Tentatively appointed to the (Continued on page 3, column 1) George Petrie, Herb Stoddard, and Paul Wolfe. Trustees on the committee are Mrs, A. Wer'r< Cook, Mrs. William B. Kip, and Robert B. Van Skike, Jr. Van Skike heads the committee. Mrs. Adrian Swift has been appointed special administrative coordinator to assist him. Also, Dr. Arthur Borden, chairman of the Humanities, has been designated the faculty marshall and will lead the faculty procession at the inauguration. The guest list for the inauguration includes people from various educational institutions, learned societies, foundations, the government, etc. in this country and abroad. Advance notices to these people are in the process of being sent out, Arthur said. Formal invitations will follow. Arthur noted that schools must plan a year or more ahead of time in arranging a ceremony like the inauguration. This will be New College's first official presidential inauguration ceremony. Elmendorf was appointed president July 16, 1965. College To Hire The college has taken steps to dismiss the Wackenhut Company as proctor for the east campus and to rehire Bob Ritchie. Planning Officer Ralph Styles said last night "the SEC has recommended (a change in proctors) and Ritchie steps arc being taken to do it." He said, "Negotiations are tmdenvay." Sty lcs said the move had been approved by President Jolm Elmendorf and Dean of Students Robert Norwine. He indicated he hopes the change will be effective by the middle of the week. Objections to various aspects of the W ackhenhut proctor operation have been voiced lately from several quarters. A student complaint President Scheduled E l mendorf Takes Steps New Proctor was brought before the SEC last week. Assistant Dean Arthur Miller told the SEC at the same meeting, "We have been in considerable trouble with the proctor situation. He pointed out the weekend changes whichhadt:ken place and the propensity of the weekend proctor for sleeping and staying in the television room. Also at the same meeting, the SEC adopted a motion to urge the administration to "seriously consider Ritchie's application" for the job. At that time Miller reported Styles was considering the action but said he (Miller) was tmsure of the official level of consideration of Ritchie's return. The SEC discussed the situation Wednesday and some interest was expressed both in having Ritchie return and in keeping James MW' phy, the present week-night proctor. A motion by first-year representative Jon Shaughnessy "that whatever questions we do ask (of the administration about the situation be asked with the idea that we don't keep Murphy and get Ritchie. 11 The motion was seconded and tabled. The meeting reached a consensus to recommend to Styles that Ritchie be hired as the canpus proctor and Murphy be retained also, if possible. Rehearsal Set; Forums Planned New College's "band" will rehearse tonight after dinner in the Music Room. There will be no forum. The group will perform Nov. 11 atthe Allied Arts Council program in Sarasota Municipal Auditorimn. Students are we 1 com e to attend the rehearsal. Other forums scheduled for the Assistant Dean Arthur Miller had earlier explained to the members of the committee his "present tm derstanding" of the situation regarding intervisitation. He said President John Elmendorf is "willing to listen to proposals for changing the rules." Grad School Accepts NC Student next few weeks include: Architect Sheldon Peed, of I M, Pei and Associates, who will speak on the development of the cast campus Nov. 4; author and playwright Borden Deal who will talk briefly about one of his own literary theories and then invite discussion on Nov. 11; and the New Co 11 e g e Choral Soc.icly which vlill present its first program Nov. 18. Miller said the proper course for such a proposal to follow was from the SEC to the College Cotmcil and then to the administration. The "main action" in the proposal for change, he said, was to Dean of Students Robert Norwine. If and when such a change in the rules were to be fotmd acceptable, he continued, the change would be postulated as an administration rule. The reasons for this, Miller said "m;v not be readily apparent but it would help to stabilize the situation. "The administration certainly is willingto listen to any reasonable proposal," Miller said. He warned, "There are some harebrained schemes floating arotmd.

The first letter of accejJtance for a New College student from a graduate school was received last week bypre-medstudent David Hartley. Duke University potified Hartley of its decision to accept him for the fall '67 term Friday. On Monday, Hartley received an acceptance letter from the University of Colorado. He is the only New College student to have been accepted by a graduate school so far. Hartley noted last night he still must seek and obtain financial aid if he is to attend either of the schools. He said he has applied at five other schools, from which he has yet received no word. In addition to being accepted at Duke, Hartley has been notified he is being considered there for its combined-degree program, under which .1 student gains both his M.D. and his Ph.

Page 2 Editorial Abs urd Proposal Somebody missed the point. The proposal regarding intervisitation which was circulated by one or more members of the student government is absurd. ot only \vill it do nothing to promote a better image of the college and its students, it also serves to demonstrate an tmwillingness to exhibit selfdiscipline or to accept responsibility. One impassioned objection to the proposal which we have heard raised most often is that of a "double standard, 11 one for boys and one for girls. The definition of double standard was hazy even when it permeated the moral codes of years ago. It is still ambiguous today. What is not at all ambiguous or equivocal is the intrinsic hypocrisy of the proposal. Already 11the word" is getting arO\.md about how great the ("Not only are they more liberal {than those now), but they would be impossible to enforce--especially without a proctor!") Talk such as this indicates someone did not tmderstand the point of the president's talk with students some days ago. The Code of Consideration is great. It really is. The one trouble with it is that it becomes meaningless as a basis for discipline. The definition of 11consideration" is too vague to be used to determine when someone has broken a rule. We discovered--after a long and painful period--that the Code of Consideration is just not adequate in this student commtmity. If memory serves us, some of those persons agitating now for the dismissal of the proctor were in the center of those whothought aproctorwassovecynecessarybarely six months ago. The reason given then for hiring a proctor was the 11odious prospect" of students policing their students. There were repeated comments of 11I don1t want to be a policeman.11 Yet the proposal to abolish intervisitation hours for boys begins with the statement: "We the undersigned endorse and will enforce the following proposed intervisitation rules. 11 Nonsense. We doubtthatthere has been any great change of heart on the part of many upperclassmen regarding the enforcement of rules. They would not enforce the rules last year and have only just begun to cooperate with the proctor in what isbeginningtolook like a token effort to enforce the existingrules. Thisisnobasisonwhich to piously claim students have matured enough to be able to handle a really liberal set of rules--much less enforce them themselves. The Catalyst P'\AY8E wl REVIVE HIM Letters Ethic of Indifference To the Editor: There is an ethic, which may be the result of the individualistic American heritage. This ethic can perhaps be paa-aphrased as follows: "I'll take everything I can get, and to hell with society. This is orobably quite an old philosophy. This ethic justifies many petty larcenies. It justifies stealing the office supplies, books from a lib rary, towels from vacation hotels, and street signs when the cops aren 1t around. Ordinarily such conduct is harmless enough. Unknown individuals may be inconvenienced, but larceny is usually limited by a lack of audacity; and the institutions affected are large enough so that their operation is not seriously limited. These last qualifications may be characteristic of New College, but the administration apparently thinks differently. It seems that the operation of the kitchen is limited because students care more for individual expediency than collective comfort. Inconveniences are inflicted on a 11 students beWill Goldwater Kill GOP? By STEVE ORLCf"SKY As we came away from the Barry Goldwater speech last Saturday, the question of the f ut u r e of the Republican Party h=g he a v y on our minds. The former sen at or left deeply imprinted in us the certainty that if what he said is representative of general Republican thought, there could be little doubt as to "for whom the bells would toll. The anachronism and Wlre ality of the morning began with the singing of "God Bless America" by a soprano (no doubt a local committeeman's wife) whose voice was remarkably similar to Mrs. Miller's. Joe Lovingood, c and i d ate for Congress from this district and the person for whom the brunch was being held, said a few words in his own b e half, which more or less came out as something to the effect of: "with the help of my fellow citizens and God, I shall seek twentieth century answers to twentieth c en t ur y problems. From then on--with the exception of the rather touching benediction: "Freedom is f rag i 1 e handle it with prayer"--the show was Goldwater's. "The American people are con cerned. I think they have a deep con c ern about what the devil is going on in Washington, Goldwater began. Then to our surprise and dismay he went on to say that the major issue in 1966 is neither Vietnam nor the rising cost of living, btt: it is instead the honesty of the administration. Vietnam and higher prices are only part of tile dishonesty shown by Mr. Johnson. We could agree that the President's C 1 u b was a questionable means by which to raise partisan ftmds. We were even willing t::> allow the inclusion of Bobby Baker and Billy Sol Estes, although we could not see how the administration was directly to be blamed for a swindle that had taken place under the prior administration. However, thereafter we fo=d ourselves severely in doubt as to the legitimacy of the rest of his case. Mr. Johnson did say in the 19 6 4 presidential campaign that the US did not intend to get involved in a shooting war in Vietnam. But our involvement did escalate into armed conflict in early 1965; however, the actions of the Viet Con g were the determining factors. Attacks on American naval craft by the Viet Cong could result Goldwater in nothing short of retaliation. Stepped up participation was the result of events taking place aft"er the e 1 e c t ions of 1964 and were hardly manifestations of dishonesty. The form e r senator mentioned Sec. of Defense Robert McNamara. "Why doesn't Sec. McNamara tell the American people that we are behind in the we a pons race?Ti he asked. We didn't care to take this accusation seriously, as we remembered Goldwater's private war with Mr. McNamara over the replacement of our manned bomber force with missiles. For an unexplained reason Goldwater was still un a b 1 e to =derstand why our manned bombers would be nom atch for Soviet ICBMs. Nor could we conceive why Mr. McNamara could be ac cused of lying about a vital subject. Goldwater went on heightening the crescendo of incredulity. "Mr. Johnson has been telling the American p eo p 1 e that the cost of living is not going up, he charged. "The inflation has been caused by the programs of the Great Society. Then with a non sequ!tur coup de grace he added, "Our president is not the legisla tive branch of government. If Goldwater -had bothered to do just a little checking, he would have realized that the government has admitted to a rise in prices. What he must have construed as a refusal to do so was Mr. Johnson's initial disapproval of a raise in the discount rate by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, and the administration's s t ate men t saying, relative to other western nations, the United States has not suffered from any marked inflation. His c h a r g c that the Great Society programs arc the fault of the inflation seems to b or d c r on the ridiculous. According to Paul Samuelson of MIT in this week's Newsweek, "there are three main causes: (1) escalation of Vietnam spending --which is superimposed onto (2) a p 1 ant -and-equipment boom--which in t= was triggered by (3) the highly successful Kennedy-Johnson tax cut of 1964-65. 11 While Goldwater may be correct in calling for a cut in spending in these programs to head off the in flation, he is nonetheless wrong in blaming these for the price rise. Again we failed to sec where the administration is being dishonest with tht "Ame-rican peoule. 11 Goldwater's final point for the dishonesty of the Johnson administration left us in a total <:tate af bewilderment. 11Therehasbeen an increase in crime and a lessening of morals. Recent Supreme Court decisions may be instrumental in destroying America. Because of these decisions, the hands of the police are tied; they lack support !rom the 'people'; haw long can it be before we have anarchy. Peo ple in the United States should not worry about the disorganized far right, they should concentrate on the radical left. In fact the radical left has wrapped itself around Washington. What any of the above has to do with the honesty of the administratioois a mystery. Goldwatermakes himself sound like a paranoid Bircher. Goldwater did fault John son for not making Washington a model city, but we were unable to see why anyone would succeed in this area when various other meticulously conceived efforts have failed. We further doubt that the recent Supreme Court decision in Escobedo vs. Illinois will result in anarchy, and if the federal government were to attempt to strengthen the local police, Goldwater would be amongthefirsttoyell about encroachment of go.,rernment. As for his nebulous charge that the far left has enveloped Washington, we did not receive any proof from him and were not aware of any other evidence to suggest this. Saturday morning's speech clearly brings to light the danger facing the Republican Party should it again allow Goldwaterism to be come the dominant force directing its philosophy. In 1964 Goldwater brought the GOP to the edge of the abyss of oblivion, as had Alf Landon in 1936. Should the same happen in 1968, the Republicans will meet the same fate that met the Whigs after 1852, and it too will have been caused by inability to adjust to change in the issues, the politics, and the dominant thought of the times. October 28, 1966 l cause some (maybe most q students think it OK to steal books and records. Now, despite the protests of the administration and the inconvenience of the students, New College can probably continue to function reasonably well even though subsidizing the irresponsible in d i vidualistic ethic of some (or most students, BUT, it seems that some people who give money to this college do not wish to subsidize our collective dishonesty. They would rather that their money be spent for CIC:h= which they der more essential. This could have serious consequences. These eople are fully justified in taking heir money elsewhere, where it -vill. be spent differently. This situation could be resolved if the Catalyst would stop publicizing the situation. It could also be resolved if the students were to stop Another situation arises from the "to hell with society" philosophy. Students fee 1 that the residence courts can be vandalized and littered at their pleasure. Many students will readily admit that they live in quite comfortable, attractive surroundings. This does not deter them from scattering empty soft drink cans, pop tops, cigarette butts, empty oil cans, broken beer bottles, crumpled paper and any other miscellaneous trash or garbage over all the residence courts and surrounding land. Students may consider this part of their revolt against propriety and respon T h e y m a y b e 1 a z y They certainly don 1t give a damn what the place looks like.

UC Students Reject Curfew The president af the University of Oticago's Student Government (SG) last month called curfew regulations for freshman and sophomorewomen "a sop for an ignorant public" and called for their aboli-tion. "Women1shourswill be abolislled effective the beginning o f winter quarter," the Chicago Maroon quo tedSGheadTomHeagy as vowing. An accreditation team from the Southern Association of Colleges and s.chools (SACS) will inspect New College as part of the process of conSldering the college's application for the status of candidate for membership in SACS. The three-man committee will arrive Wednesday afternoon and remain on campus until Friday, according to Graduate Placement 0 ff ice r Earl Helgeson. He said w hi 1 e they are here committee members will talk with members of the faculty, the administration and students in addition to other activities. Chairman of the committee is Dr. Alfred Neumann, Dean of the University of Houston. The other two members are Dr. Fred Conner, Vice President of the University of Florida, and Dr. Charles Vail, Associate Executive Secretary, Commission on Colleges, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Helgeson termed the process of applying for status of candidate for membership an "early recognition procedure. If New Co 11 e g e is granted this status, he said, it can "get the process of accreditation underway while the time requirement (for accreditation) is elapsing. 11 U-n de r the rules of the SACS a college must graduate two classes before it can apply forfull accreditation, Helgeson said. Part of the requirements for full accreditation is an intensive selfstudy by the college which will require from 12 to 18 months to complete. If it is gr.mted the status of candidate for membership, it can initiate this study during the period it is graduating the required two classes. According to Helgeson, the "ear liest New College could possibly have full accreditation would be 1969." If the college is granted its candidate status, accreditation would be retroactive to include the first two classes to graduate. Favorable Replies From Grad Schools Reach Total of 31 Rejecting arguments that first and second year women are not sufficiently m at ur e to regulate their own lives as "nothing but a vestige of the Victorian double standard," Heagy warned that unleS'> the administration abolishes hours, SG would "unilaterally" do so. There are no curfew restrictions on male students or female upper classmen. (lntervisitation, however, is allowed only from 4 pm to 1 am on Friday, 1 pm to 1 am on Saturday, and 1 pm to 10 pm on Sunday, "a net increase of 14 hours over last year." A total of 31 graduate schools have now indicated their willingness to consider New College students without prejudice even though the college is not yet accredited. Replies have been coming in steadily for the last two weeks and Graduate Placement Officer Earl Helgeson expects many more in the near Heagy c ailed for every 1mderclass woman to commit "a major viola tion" of the curfew hours during the first two weeks of the winter quarter. future. Altogether he has contacted 100 schools. Fourschools have responded with so m e question about considering New College graduates. Two of these, UCLA and the State Univer sity of New York at Albany, allow admissions committees to pass on graduates any deferment of requirements on accreditation must come from them.

It's not the same in Florida, exactly, but it'snot so different either. The endless trailer parks resemble trains more than metaphorically, and the wil derness has to be sought after. So you begin worrying about the population explosion, and 'wondering what it will be like in fifty years. America will be one vast city, you think and we'll die like flies from lack of space and air. But I fol.Dld that in Wyoming, the little towus are sixty miles apart, and b e t w e e n tllem are hills of brown, broken earth which the wind molds, cruelly digging useless furrows, destroying and building the futile grol.Dld. stral}ge Paulson _.; yellow hills of South a, wild pheasant are the only life that cross the careful highway. The towns send out their signals for miles--the insurance brokers and .automobile agencies and motels and restaurants and you wait for them, and the towns come and you wonder if there shouldn't be something more--if this can really be all, if this can be all, if this can be where people are bom and live and die. But there's nothing more, and there have been many, many lives in the few dusty streets. I believed you could always learn about a place, when you were away from it. That the new people and things and attitudes would tell you about the ones you left--the more familiarones--ifonlyby their difference. Butitseemedthatmthing spoke of New College, of Sarasota, of anything but the vastness and the prairie grass and, much far t h e r nolth, the melting glacial remnants hidden in the secret places of the mo\.Dlt ains. I couldn't even im ag ine'c o u l d n 1 t conceive of the warmth and the flatness and the silly, fragil e palm trees there, couldn't imagine people attending a college, doing the things they did, even talking together, as I stood on the hilltop, the sky embraced by the pine trees, the other mol.Dltains far away, the quietness except for t h e insects stirring in the hilltop grass, and the wind. !couldn't believe there was anything like a New College in the world, and I had been dreaming to think so. But this, 1 should have known, was the most important discovery of all. There was one town in its dusty valley, cold and windy and rain!ng in August, and I walked its one main street late at night, and even the air seemed different, was something I'd never known before. It was cold and l wasn t prepared for it, and I walked close to the s ides of the buildings.
