Builds Harpsichord for ISP First-year student William Patterson spent his Independent Study Period building a harpsichord from a kit paid for by money given him by the Humanities Department. Patterson, who worked many hours to complete the project, will donate the instrument to the school. Helgeson Calls for Second-Year Plans Second-year students should begin thinking seriously about graduate school, according to Assistant to the President Earl Helgeson. In !Ielgeson urged the forming of tentative plansf:>r graduae study during the next month. Helgeson said he would meet with students individually during May and june to discuss these plans. Helgeson emphasized students because New College provides a non-graded, non-rankedtmnscript, or because the college is not acredited. "We have instead been treated as what we are--a highly selective college of national character 11 Helgeson states. He at tributes this to "the calibre of the student body. Helgeson said students should not attempt to answer questions about the college posed by the graduate schools but should refer all questionsto'him, to be answered officially. He said this is the most effective means of answering such questions. Gorfein To Join Natural Sciences The minutes of the Aprill9 faculty meeting reveal Psychology Professor Dr. David G<>rlein will become a member of the Natural Sciences Division. The letter conduded by raninding students entrance into graduate school is only the first st2p. Per formance in graduate school itself "willhelp establish New College's reputation in the eyes of these schools. It is the responsibility of members of the second class to help build this reputation, Hel geson states. April21, 1967 Approves Faculty Four-Year Option The faculty has recommended to the Board of Trustees a four-year option be offered students beginning September of this year. This recommendation followed a report by an ad hoc committee of the faculty on the feasibility of the calendar revision. The faculty had tentatively recommended the change at a previous meeting, pending the committee report. The proposed calendar change, as outlined in the report, would offer students the option, without financialpenalty, to work toward a degree in either three or four years. Under the three-year option, nine successive terms would be required on campus. The major change in this plan from the present system would be the scheduling of the independent study projects, two of whichwouldhave to be completed during the summer v ac at ion period. Students wishing to work four years for a degree would have three "surplus" terms for study, travel or other purposes. The faculty suggested in its original report the "surplus" terms be used during the second and third years, the student being in residence throughout the first and fourth years. In determining the feasibility of such a plan, the ad hoc committee said it made the following assump tions: ---Forthe next two years the college will have dormitory space for approximately 270 students. ---The size of the entering class will be inflexible for the next two years and thereafter the growth of a pooi of acceptable applicants and thecompletionofnew housing will make some fle:n"bility possible. --The entering class sizes for the next five years, based on an enroll -ment proJection table used by the collegeforplanning purposes, \vill be, under a straight three-year program, 127in 1967,138 in 1968, 188 in 1969, 212 in 1970, and 229 in 1971. Under a three year--four year option, the projected enrollments are: 127 in 1967, 138 in 1968 200 in 1969,225 in 1970, and 254 in 1971. --The college billing system will be converted to a term basis begin ning in September of this year. --The attrition rate for the student body will make the average attendance for the year about six per cent lower than September enrollment figures. --Average annual income per student will be about $2,100 in 1967-68, after which it will rise about $100 a year as increasingly larger numbers of students paying full tuition are enrolled. --With the three year-four year calendar option available, half of the students in each class will elect the four-year cuniculum. Based on these assumptions, the ad hoc committee decided the calendar change would be financially feasible, although some loss of income (as much as $52, 800 for the year 1968-!:9) could be expected. Some variables could decrease this income d fferential, however, the reportsaid. More full-paying students might be attracted under the plan, for instance, or the attrition rate could decrease. The committee recommended "strongly" that four-year students be required to schednle at 1 e as t two of their off-campus terms in the fall, to "achieve the financially desirable o b j e c t i v e of a reasonably leve 1 en roll m ent throughout the academic year. The committee also reported the four-year option would nave no adverse e ff e c t s on scholarship and loan pro g r a m s, including those sponsored by the Federal govern ment. Members of the ad hoc committee included: Vice President Paul Davis, College Controller Charles Harra, Dr. Brian Kay, Dean of Stu dents Robert Notwine, Dr. George Petrie, Dr. Gresham Riley, and President John Elmendorf (ex officio). Friends Indicate Cassell's Return Formersecond-yearstudent Mike Cassell has apparently been readmitted by the faculty and will be a student here next term. According to friends of Cassell, the faculty approved an application for re-admittance at Wednesday's faculty meeting, and Cassell plans to arrive here tomorrow. Dr. David Dykstra, secretary of the faculty, refused to confirm the story, sayingit would be "improper" to divulge which way the faculty voted tmtil Cassell has been officially notified. One student told The Catalyst she had been informed of the faculty's favorable vote by Assistant Dean Arthur Miller Wednesday evening, and that she subsequently informed Cassell via long distance telephone. Cassell told her he would come to campus tomorrow. Cassell was dismissed last winter after he failed to tum in a satisfactory independent study project nine months overdue. Reports are that Cassell will be required to make up his first-year deficiencies (biology and chemistry)bythe end of the term and that he will be tmder a suspension of academic privilege. Cassell Alleged Obscenity CausesBiankPages The minutes report William Furlong will be Social Sciences representative to the la."brary Committee, replacing Gorlein, who will move to the Nat ural Sciences department. Refrigerators Must Go Readers of the current issue of the Spectrum, the student newspaper of the State University of New York at Buffalo, will find 2 1/2 blank pages because printers refusedtoreproduce material they considered obscene, according to an Associated Press story. Thismove gives credance to unofficial reports G<>rfein will remain on the faculty next year. It was expected that, if he stayed, he would become a member of the Natural Sciences department. It was originally announced G<>rfein 's contract would not be renewed. The faculty also voted not to allow exemptions from the first-year Comprehensive Examinations. A student reportedly requested he be exempted from the examinations. Inotherbusiness, the faculty approved the 5-A committee's nomination of David Moore for a 1968-69 Rotary graduate fellowship. With minor exceptions, refriger ators will not be allowed in the student residences once Hamilton Court is completed. According to W. A. Me Vickar, director of the physical plant, only students with special needs will be allowed to retam refrigerators. McVickar said refrigerators have added "considerably'' to the college electric bill; the refrigerators are "ugly"; and since they are "usually of venerable age" they tend to experience mechanical difficulties that could cause "quite a mess. McVickar noted refrigerators are not allowed under the room agreements allstudentshave signed, and that the college allowed their tem porary use in the dollllS only because the snack bar in Hamilton Court has been tmavailable. Accordingtoformer House Comm:ittee Cllairman Kenji Oda, however, Planning Officer Ralph Styles said at one point first term students who had purchased refrigerators before completion of Hamilton Court could keep them. First-year student Mary Lou Phil lips, avove, keeps vigil on her refrigerator. Elaborate Castle Wins Team Bond The team of first-year students Bill Nunez and Ken Peffers won a $25 savings bond as second prize in the world's first sandcastle building contest Saturday at the Sheraton Sandcastle on Lido Beach. Ntmez andPeffer1scastlewas sug gested by Mont St. Michel in France, and took approximately three hours to construct. A spokesmanforthe printing firm, Partner's Press of suburban Kenmore, said the company and its employees were outraged by the language in a two-page poem and editorial. The paper has been charged by the Student Senate with financial mismanagement. In addition. its e d ito r s have been criticized by Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller's office for a music review that allegedly contained obscenities, the AP reported.


Page 2 Editorials A Question of Honors "Honors should not be granted on New College degrees." This was one of the conclusions of the All-College Educa tional Planning Conference in January. A college that stresses breadth as well as depth and method as well as data has no justification for a competitive system that encourages stu.dentstowork only on their strong subjects and on passing exams as opposed to learning to think. Yet the faculty is operating Wlder a policy that permits academic distinctions on the baccalaureate exams, the qualifying exams, and independent study projects after the first year. According to College Examiner Dr. John French, who supported the motion that instituted the "honors" distinctions, some faculty members who voted for distinctions did so not because they approved of the principle but because they thought such distinctions would help the best students gain national fellowships. He said representatives of various graduate schools advised that some means of identifying the superior student be devised. French himself is no longer certain he favors the system as it now operates. The faculty, he estimates, give "honors" to about 10-15% of the students. What French envisaged was thatthe distinction would be granted to approximately 40% ofthe students. The stinginess of the faculty has made the system a "distinct disadvantage 11 for the bulk of the students, and is thus doing more harm than good. In French's view, therefore, the alternatives would be to make the giving of "honors" more widespread, or to give up the idea. We don1tknowif the academic distinctions helped or hindered anyone in the Qass of 167 in his candidacy for graduate school admission and competitive fellowships. We do know that students came here realizing the risks involved in participating in an WlCOnventional curriculmn and that they presumably accepted the risks for the benefits of the nongraded system. There is no to be either way on the issue, however. We think the quest1on ought to be settled after a meaningful discussion of the problem between faculty and students. And the recommendation from the Planning Conference would for this .reason to have greater validity than the faculty's unilateral dects1on. The Great Modernizer "Popular Revolutions" is the theme of the New College Institute on Foreign Affair's symposium this coming week, and we urge all thinking members of the comm Wlity to participate in the program, for some of the most explosive dilemmas of American foreign policy are to be fotm.d in our attitudes toward the increasingly prevalent "wars of national liberation" in the Wlderdeveloped areas of the world. The United States has committed its support to the economic and social development of poor nations through massive financial and technical aid programs. This commitment has been justified (and attacked)on humanitarian, political, military, and economic grounds. Consequently, our foreign policy towards the developing nations has become, in our view, ludicrously illogical and self-defeating. In Vietnam we brand land reforms proposed by the Nationalliberation Front "comm\Dlist" and therefore reprehensible. We turn around and advise the South Vietnamese to introduce their own land reforms, and then shake our heads when the duly-elected South Vietnamese parliament votes overwhelmingly to reject the idea, a logical move for a shortsighted traditionalist government. We seem to forget that economic and social development must go hand-in-hand. The main impediment to purely economic development in Southeast Asia, according to economist Robert Heilbroner, is ''the miasma of apathy and fatalism, superstition and distrust that vitiates every attempt to improve hopelessly inefficient modes of work and pat terns of resource use." On one hand, we pump our foreign aid into the 1.Dlderdeveloped economies; on the other, we struggle to maintain the very cultural institutions and elitist class structures that stand in the way of the effective use of that aid. Communism, in Heilbroner's words, has served as the "greatmodernizer"inthis century. The West seems caught in an irresolvable dilemma: by far the most efficient way to organize a nation for its jwnp into the 20th century is through authoritarian and 11revolutionary11 methods; the consequences of these methods for individual liberty force us to disavow them. Caught in no such dilemma, Commtm. ism has become the contemporary progressive force, and the West--the U. S. in particular--is increasingly being identified as the protector of vested interests. So long as the U. S. views collectivist movements in the poor nations as parts of a monolithic worldwide conspiracy, it is forced politically and militarily to fight these movements and support despotic aristocrats and stagnant social orders. We think it's time to re-examine our attitudes toward collectivism in the Wlderdeveloped nations, Nith a view toward extending our support to such movements and eliminating the necessity of ideologically-based conflict and bloodshed. If we don 1t, the peas ants we are protecting from Comm\Dlist terrorism will very gratefully starve to death. The Catalyst April 21, 1967 Letters Dogs and "Spitballe r s" Peri I Cyclist The student who authored the following letter has sent a copy to the Sarasota Herald To the Editor: I sit now in a cool, quiet, and safe dormitoxy room. But not too long ago I was riding a bicycle on Bayshore road. This seemingly insignificant bit of inform at ion may not arouse your attention, as it would not arouse mine, except for two incidents that occured on that road. The first happened last night, the second tonight. Last night a friend of mine (female), who was riding a bicycle in front of me, was attacked by a dog. Dogs normally scare me, but large dogs, at night, that bark as they come charging out of a yard, and across the road, scare me even more. The initial charge was not against me, but against my friend. She screamed and I charged, yelling at the top of my voice. The dog backed off and let her pass only to attack me, whereupon I repeated my warning in his (?) face while peddling off at top speed. As I left the scene I heard a worn an call from the house in the yard where the dog came from, something to the effect of "Don't play with the dog, you'll get hurt." To this I replied "I'll Kill. that ---dog. 11 I am not against dogs, large or small, bU: I am in favor of people, large and small. Since I am new, here, I arrived last September, I do not know whether or not there is a leash law in Sarasota If there is, I wish it would be brought to the public's attention. If there is no leash law or some If there is no lreash law or some other law to protect citizens, then I think such a law should be seriously considered. If neither of the above alternatives are applied and the present situation does not change, then I suggest that the cyclists arm themselves or pet owners feed their dogs. My second "night" ride was alone (my friend would not come) on the same road. There were no dogs this time, just people in cars. One car, ayellowFord Mustang traveling in the same direction as I was-towardthe airport, bothered me in particular. As it passed me from behind, the driverblewthehom and one of the passengers sent a spitball in my direction with a fair amotmt of accuracy. It hit my arm. The occupants of the car (hereafter referred to as the "spitballers" for lack of a better name) must have thought the incident terrible f=y because they laughed loudly as they cruised out of sight. Whether it was f\Dllly or not (and I can see a slight bit of warped humorfrom their viewpoint) I do not approve of the "spitballer's" waste disposal habits. After all, what would they have done if I was not arotmd to catch their spitballs? All that filth would have just accumulated in their mouths and they would have choked to death. Besides presenting the remote possibility of choking to death, their practice is also looked uoon (at least by me and my immediate circle of friends) as distasteful and a sign of intease hatred and extremely low opinion of the person on the receiving end of the ball, not to mention the poor upbringing of the 11spitballer11 If "spitballers11 hold such opinions of me, I think they should have the decency to inform me :in person rather than from a car and via a spitb:ll. I also think that they have :insufficient information to hate me for the simple reason that they do not know me. Criticizes Guest To the Editor: I hadn't thought about it much before, since, after all, it made some sense on the surface. Of course we should require all guests to be registered. What about the tinle the 15-year-old girls were here at a party and their father didn'tknow, and whenhefotmd out threatened bodily harm to the college? We could get in serious trouble if stuff like that keeps up. But the other day a friend got involved in the red tape of guest registration and I realized just what foolishness guest sign-in is. We require evexy stranger on campus after 8 pm (in the dark, sinful night) b be registered, stamped, approved, processed. We can't have a halfhourvisitorwithout a half-hour in duction. Surely this is one of the most unfriendly campuses in the COI.Dltty. At any rate, the 11spitballers11 opinion of the situation is evident, the opinion of the Sarasota community is undetermined, and my opinion is very low. I think that 11spitballers11 and dogs should be put away in a safe place where they cannot hurt anyone. Either that or put me in a city where I can ride a bic'llCle at niszht without wonying about insults and maybe worse from one quarter, and loss of limbs from the other. (Signed) Stephen Cabral Registration It may well be that overnight guests should be required to identify themselves in some way. And of course off-campus guests should be subject tointervisitation restric tions as well as other student rules. But it's my own business who I let into my room at any other time. There are more threats to the security of New College students than from guests. Any kind of molester, potential or otherwise, can creep into the court through the numerous holes and openings provided. 15year-:)ld girls can be corrupted before 8 pm, too. Besides, if the tather of those girls can't keep better track of them than apparently he has, it's his own fault and not ours. We can't stand in loco parentis for the entire community. (signed) Lawrence Paulson Colorado Prof Offers Arbitrary HC" Grade (ACP)--A Colorado State University professor has his own ideas about grading--he would like to give his students a choice of re ceiving a guaranteed C or trying to a c hi eve a higher grade, the Collegian reports. Edward B. Reed, assistant profes sor of zoology, said he first proposed the system to his classes last quarter "partly in fun and partly because a number of students had complained they were too busy trying to make grades to learn anything." The proposal met with mixed re actions from students in his limno logy and freshwater invertebrates classes. The arbitrary grade is based on Reed's impression, over the years, that a grade of Cis about average for his classes. 111 don't plan the grade distribution this way, he said. "That's Just the way it hap pens. He added, however, that C is not a popular grade. Reed pointed out that his propo sal woold i m p 1 y a kind of honor system on the part of students who chose to r e c e i v e the C. They "w o u 1 d be expected to read the text, he said, "and they would definitely be expected to attend class. He said he feels certain the sys tem would work, at least in his up perseries courses, because students in these courses see them as being ''of definite value to their careers."

I had, God knows, thought of it enough before. But he sat beside me as the bus roared with a kind of agony through the suburban streets and I saw again Paulson with the same surprise that the trees had no leaves in April. I thought hewasgoingto open his newspaper but he turned to me instead and asked if I lived in Westfield, and if I often took the bus toNewYork alone. I said I had lived in Westfield all 111y life, but now went to college in Florida, and bad ridden the 20 miles to New York alone many times. I expected some question about my college but be surprised me and said I shouldn't, that it was a terrible thing to be alone. That it was the worst thing in the world. Being with someone else is what life is all about, he sad, you'll learn that. He seemed to expect some answer but I was embarrassed in spite of myself and mumbled something that must have sounded hostile. He opened his paper and we went the rest of the way in the silence of the bus' harsh scream. I thought of you in the incredible streets of the impossible city. I thought of you a; I wondered if there were a green hope in the hazy spring clouds, and sav your face, for a moment, in a shop-window reflection. I knew you had heard the man on the bus speak in some other voice. And I knew, with far more certainty than the coming of one April flower, that the voice, and those words, bad no right to trouble you, as I knew it had. It's a much greater thing than traveling to the city alone--the voice meant more than that. But we are plunged from birth into an ethic of togetherness and community we are assailed bitterly for if we resist. A kind of universal insecurity has us cling together as a protection from our own mediocrity. We are lonely and anxious when we have only ourselves for comfort.
