DR, & S J El 535 BLV D, OF PRESIDmy'fORF SARASOTA, FLORIDA 33577 Volume III, Number 32 Ham ilton To Be Center Complex De dicated Thursday New College's newest building complex will be dedicated in ceremonies to be held Thursday at 10 am on the East Campus. Dedication of the Carl and MarJOrie Hamilton Center will precede by only a few hours the first formal event to be held there--the Women's Library Ass:> ciation for New College benefit ball. Dedication ceremonies will be held outside the main building of the complex and will honor Mrs. Carl Hamilton of Venice, whose gifts made possible the construction of the center. units. The language laboratory will be centered in a special room w he r e students are free to study tapes of foreign languages. In the electronics center, audio and television equipment eventually will permit intercommunication with any part of the complex. At one end of the academic building there is a teaching auditorium, with a demonstration or lecture stage as its focus. All seats are aiTanged in fixed rows around the sloping sides of the auditorium. Complete facilities include film projection and television camera booths. The cent e r includes an access road at the front entrance and a 1 a rg e landscaped parking lot at the rear. At the ceremonies, which are open to the public, Trustee ChairmanDallas Dort will welcome all guests and President John Elmendorf will recount the history and development of the East Campus. Mrs. Hamilton will unveil both the family coat of arms and the bronze plaque that will be mounted inside the building. After the ceremonies the center will be thrown open to tours by the college community and guests. April 28, i967 Hamilton Center, which will be dedicated Thursday, is seen last night during the opening session of the Conference on Revolutions. (See cartoon and Paulson's colwnn, inside.) Designed by the New Yolk architectural firm of I. M. Pei and Associates, the new buildings will provide student and visitor reception areas, dean of students offices, snack bar, lounge, private dining rooms, and general dining areas. SEC Hears Amendment Propos s A second building has five classrooms, a language laboratory, an electronics communication center, and a teaching auditorium. Construction of the new which are architecturally designed to be JOined with the three Pei designed residence halls, began a little more than a year ago. About 350 persons may eat at one time in the main dining hall of the largest building. Most meals will be served from a cafeteria at one side of the dining room. The cafeteria has been designed by a kitchen consultant to provide speedy service for large groups. The dining hall may be converted to an auditorium seating up to 500 w room for a stage at one end. Two private dining rooms, one of which is divisible into two sections, are in this building. They may be used for classrooms or for conferences, foreign language tables, or for 1 u n c he on or dinner meetings. Students will use the reception center to receive mail and messages, and representatives of the dean of students' office will have offices here to keep in close touch with the undergraduates. The academic building has large classrooms which face out onto a common plaza on which the dining hall also fronts. Each of the classrooms is d i vis i b 1 e into smaller Spanier "The West is the greatest subversive force that ha; ever existed, according to Dr. John Spanier, Director of the Institute of International Relations at the University of Florida. The West--and especially the United States--has caused through the businessman, missionary, and soldier a "revolution of rising expectations" that has often led to a "revolution of rising frustration. Spanier addressed his remarks to a large crowd of students, faculty, administrators, and townspeople Ethics Professor Will Speck Sunday Dr. William Hughes Hamilton, Professor of Christian The o 1 o g y and Ethics at Colgate Rochester Divinity School, will speak informally to students Sunday at 8:15 pm in the new lounge in Hamilton Center. Hamilton is the author of numerous articles, books, and television scripts, including publications on the "Death of God" theology. Dr. Hamilton's fields of special interest are systematic theology, ethics, religion and literature, and history of Christian thought. For Decentrali2ing The Student Executive Committee in its first meeting of the new term Wednesday took what are apparently the first steps in a gradual program to decentralize student govem.ment. Amendments to the SEC constitution which would make the Stu dent Judicial Committee a more autonomous body, locate the power of l gislative review outside th SEC, and delete election dates and deadlines were referred to an ad hoc committee for final wording before they are submitted to students for approval. In a separate action the SEC, in response to a petition, added a provision to their Modes of Procedure forbidding an SEC member from voting in disciplinary appeals if he acted as prosecutor in the original trial, and in so doing necessitated a student referendum. Second-year representative and SJC Chairman Rick Stauffer started the discussion on constitutional revision by introducing one amendment to forbid the SJC chairman to be an SEC member, and another to give a "panel of students"-perhaps the SJC--responsibility to rule on 'questions of constitutionality of student legislation. Presently the constitution requires theSJCchairmanbe an SEC member, and that questions of constitutionality be decided by student referendum. Third-yearrepresentative Rachel Findley then asked "why dates for elections an._d deadlin for signing must be in the constitution. "If (the dates and deadlines) are there to protect us from tyrannical govemment, it's hard to see how they do it, 11 she said. Institution of a simpler constitution was suggested, as the prese...t one is so precise in places that it has since undergone "unwieldy" changes. Assistant Dean Dr. Arthur Miller agreed that "our problem is that so few read the constitution (and) so seldom, "but he cautioned, "Let's talk gradualism. "If there's one thing the early student government experience here has demonstrated, it's that general guidelines lead in the wrong direction. 11 Government Findley, first-year representative Mary Lamprech and a third student to be appointed comprise the ad hoc committee that will submit revision proposals next week. The Supervisory Committee reported a petition had been filed SEC members be disqu.alifed from serving as SJC prosecutor. Second-year representative Jerry Neugarten, who was appointed prosecutor 1 a s t m o n t h, argued, "This campus is a relatively small community," and said under the circumstances it would be in the student government's best interests to appoint a prosecutor regardless of his other official positions. "I recognize there would be a conflict of interest, 11 he told the SEC, "but not if I abstain from voting in the event of an appeal. Andithinkiwould be a good prosecutor." A motion to allow an SEC memberto serve as prosecutor provided he not vote in an appeal was passed without dissent. Stauffer and third-year representative Sarah Dean abstained. Since the SEC did not approve the the petition proposal, there will be a referendum to settle the issue May 8. In other action, Miller reported the mailroom and switchboard in Hamilton Center will go into use Monday and warned of impending confusion. Stauffer reported the proctors will not investigate anonymous "tips" of student wrongdoing, since such notices do not constitute formal complaints. Trustees To Heel' FourthYear Plan The Board of Trustees will vote on recommendations for a fourthyear option for students and a site planforthe Palmer (West) Campus at their regular spring meeting next week. The trustees will go into general session Thursday rooming in Hamilton Center. A luncheon meeting with the faculty is scheduled for 1 pm. Says u. s. Subversive They will recess from 10-ll am to attend the official dedication of the Center. A concluding session is set for Friday morning. Lester Pancoast of Pancoast, Fer endino & Grafton will present his firm's site plans for the Palmer Campus to the Board. According to Vice President Paul Davis, the Board will probably give preliminary approval of the pl-.u pending "a great deal of checking out" of project details with local utilities agencies and the like. lastnight in the main dining room of Hamilton Center at the opening session of a symposium on "Popular Revolutions. Spanier began by explaining he would "generalize!' for 40 minutes and speak of revolutions from the point of view of American foreign policy, which is his special interest. The birth of the so-called "Third World, 11 he said, represents a collapse of "Western colonial order" in the world and a weakening of the "American hegemony" in this hemisphere. The whole problem, he concluded, is to create a new stable international order. Afternotingthere are differences in conditions in various parts of the Third World (Africa, Asia, Latin America) Spanier said all underdeveloped nations that have been infected with the urge to develop face the basic problem of "nationbuilding. II The ruling classes, he said, must sometimes be overthrown if economic and social progress is to be realized. In the developing nations one cannot think in terms of reform; "We have to think in terms of revolution." Economic development is only "one small aspect" of a country's progress, he continued, and the modernization process requires fundamental changes in the deSpanier veloping nation's political and social structure. Spanier said several times dming his talk he is "pessimistic" about the direction the world is taking, apparently in terms of American goals and ideals. He said developing nations exhibit "for all their nationalism, no "national consciousness. Social tensions in the traditional social and cultural structures are caused by the revolution of expectations, and these tensions translate into an anti-American radicalism. Nationalist leaders, he predicted, will increasingly wave a "bloody flag" against the West in order to unify the masses. He said we should theN'..fore expect more "radical" policies among the intelligentsia of the developing nations in the future. Spanier remarked one of the most crucial difficulties faced by the developing mtions is the population explosion, and he suggested, "What the world needs most of all is a one-cent pill. "Are in fact totalitarian means the only ones" by which developing nations can modernize? Spanier did not answer his own question, but he said both Russia and Red China agree the answer is, yes. The United States, on the other hand, is basically conservative. He called the Revolution of 1776 a "conservative, political revolution and not a social revolution. "We understand national independence but not social revolutions." Whether totalitarian means are necessary or not, he concluded, the trend in the developing Third World today is toward their increasing use. The symposium continues today and tomorrow with a number of addresses by experts and several seminar discussions, Thefacultywill present a calendar revision which allows students to opt for a four-year program, in which students must spend nine of the 12 terms in that period on campus. University Women T o Host Coed T e a The Sarasota Chapter of the American Association of University Women has invited the women students of New College to a tea Wed n e s d a y from 3-Spm at the home of Mrs. John Elmendorf. The A. A. U. W. sponsors graduate fellowships for w om en in order that they mil!:ht continue their education in tlie United States and abroad, In a rare exception to their policy of giving only graduate aid, the Sarasota A. A. U. W. has supported an undergraduate New Co::Iege student in order to show their confidence and faith in the New College experiment.


Page 2 Editorial For the Pr osecution So long as students feel their rules should play a ptmitive role, in addition to their role as guidelines for handling social "problems11 as they occur, successful prosecution of disciplinary cases is as important as proper handling of disturbances by the proctors. The selection of a prosecutor for the Judicial Committee is therefore an important matter. Those who know him are convinced Jerry Neugarten will make an excellent prosecutor. The Student Executive Committee, in appointing him prosecutor last month, seemed to agree. The problem is that N eugarten is on the SEC, and therefol'c he is caught in a conflict of interests: the SEC hears appeals of JC cases, and thus he will vote on cases he prosecuted. We agree with N eugarten that the size and intimacy of this school makes it tnmecessary and perhaps impractical to pretendthe legalism that is appropriate to an anonymous society. We wouldsupportthe SEC's decision to allow Neugarten to act as prosecutor, except for one point. In agreeing not to vote in case of appeal, Neugarten has agreed to materially and unfairly reduce the chances of a defendant's winning his appeal. Since the constitution as it stands makes no distinction between an SEC motion to reverse an SJC decision and any other regular item of business, a majority of those present is sufficient to pass a reversal motion. With one member abstaining, an appellant must win five of eight instead of five of nine votes, which reduces his chances. One possible solution would be to seat the elected alternate of the prosecutor's class, but we are ofthe opinion the alternate is not as representative an official as the regular member he replaces. Our views are not intended as reflection on Neugarten's ability to remain objective. But in a trial system, the prosecutor presumably pursues cases only when he is convinced there is reasonable evidence of guilt, for otherwise he would move for dismissal. And an appellant deserves to have an appeal jmy that is not inherently convinced of his guilt to begin with. Thus, the unavoidable conclusion is that in the interests of fairness the prosecutor should not be a member of the SEC. French Awarded $11,300 Grctlt To Study Co\\ege Exam ''Types'' College Examiner Dr. John French has been awarded an $11, 300 re search gmnt by the College Entrance ExaminationBoard (CEEB) to study response patterns of student "types" on college-level examinations, French's goal is to show "which items on a test are biased against which type of student. 11 exams and other standardize d tests and the discovery of a testable measurement for creativity. The project will probably take more than a year to complete, and French will employ members of the Class of 169 to serve as his subjects, He said he will pay student helpers to assist him. Statistical correla tions will be done by computer. LeHers The Catalyst He plans to test about SO New College students and about 10 students in each of the following classifications: those attending less selective undergraduate colleges; men attending an adult program at a community college; and women attending such adult programs. The tests French will use consists of the standard College Comprehensive Tests (CCT) plus special non-multiple choice tests he will prepare himself. Hits Refrigerator Ban Among specific possibilities of the project are determination of the bias in the Selective Service Refrigerator Rule May Be Eliminated Students with refrigerators may not hav e to give them up now that Hamilto n Center has opened. Assistant D ean Arthur Mille r said at the Stud e m Executive Committee meeting W ednesday he had conferred w it h D e a n o { Stu d e nts Robert N o rwin e and Directo r of the Physical Plant W. A. McVickar regarding the administration order that refrigerators be removed. M i 11 e r said the administration was "willing t o consider" a request by students that refrigerators now registered could be retaine d until the end of the year, and tabletop refrigerators be p ennitte d next year. H e said a r equest by the SEC wpuld be in order. The SEC acted to make this re quest, but directe d the House Committee to worl!; out an agreement with the administration permitting full-size refrigerators n ext y ear as well. Mille emphasized the administratio n has not officially agreed to a nything but the Conditio ns of Occupancy signed by students at tbe beginnjng of the year, which refrigerators except for JJledical reasom. To the Editor: I do not own a r e fr i g e r at or Therefore, I am pragmatically indifferent to the recent announcement that "refrigerators must go. However, in examining the reasons I find inconsistencies, and idealism takes the place of pragmatism. Besides, some of my best friends have refrigerators; some day, perhaps, so will I. W i lhelm Praises S tuderts To the Students of New College: The annotmcement in last week's Catalyst regarding my resignation and departure was factually correct, but I would like to add a bit to it. In this one year at the College my assignments brought me into contact with many fine people in the Sara sot a -Bradenton are a. So m e were already f r i e n d s and supporters of the College, others were l ess enthusiastic or were even unfriendly. Many of this la tt e r group hav e been given reason du ring this year to re-evaluate their thinking about New College and Halls Hail Arrival A baby girl was bom to Stephen and Nancy Flatter Hall Monday rooming at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. Lara Alicia, 7 lb. 1 1/2 oz. and 2011 tall, and her mother are resting at the Halls1 off-campus home. Both Steve and Nancy are second-year students here. Refrigerators, says Mr. McVicker, have added considerably to the college e I e c t ric bill. Two points in reference to this com plaint: first, refrigerators are used to hold food. Food is eaten. Food must be bought. In buying food students patronize local food stores. Therefore, refrigerators considerably reduce the college food bill, and have the added advantage of the result is cause for encouragement. The best salesmen this or any other school can possibly have are the students, and many of youhave caught the signific:m.ce of this fact and are fast becoming very effective ambassadors, I'm not think ing of a glittering showcase to show otf our prize gems, b11; just the every day opportunities you have in your c o n t a c t s with the community. Some of you have already fotmd that in Ralph Henry, the Director of Development, and others in the Development 0 ff i c e, you have fri.ends who are genuinely interested in you(and not just as tools for the Development Office). I know I speak for Mr. Henry, Mary Alice Root, Palmer Bevis, and the others, in saying you are always welcome in the Development Office. Again, I thank you for your many kindnesses and assistance to me, and I pray for your happiness and success.

Second, television sets, which are allowed, also tend to considerably increase the college electric bill, without providing any of the advantages just mentioned, re refrigerators. Refrigerators, says Mr. McVickar, can malfunction and cause "quite a mess. 11 I see two possible interpretations of this statement. One, if a refrigerator quits, ice could melt and flood the room. Perhaps Mr. McVickar would care to observe the effect of a heavy rain on my floor Two, the coolant could leak out, I am under the impression that the virtue of refrigerator coolant that allows operation is the f:ct that it is vo-1 at i v e That is, it evaporates. Enough said, Refrigerators, says Mr. McVickar finally, are "ugly. 11 Even allowing the validity of Mr. McVic kars aesthetic judgement, I would like to see the refrigerator th at approaches in ugliness the appearance of College Hall. Perhaps we should go through the dormitories and throw out everything not aesthetically pleasing. In addition to rid din g the rooms of the black monsters of bookcases we were issued, the attrition rate would cer tainly be increased manyfold, I heard, once, that insurance problems were involved. Then why, may I ask, have we been permitted refrigerators up to the present? I tend to doubt the ef-fectiveness of telling an insurance company to "wait until Hamilton Court is finished. There are other points against the banning of refrigerators, such as the difficulty in removingthem and the economic implications of flooding the Sarasota used refrigerator m ark e t However, I rest my case.

First-year student Paul Adomites told a group of about 60 students they should demand the snack bar in Hamilton Center not be opened untilfullfacilitiesare ready. Ad-Trichions of Sandals and Marantulas of Gold STARKER'S Page 3 .on cam us with Laurie f.4ulson The Opening The cars and buses began arri ving even before dawn. Some had traveled across the continent to be here for the event. Of course, no one was sure that today was the day of days, the crowning day when Hamilton Court would open. But those who had been watching the stars, searching for signs, had told us, with Saturn where it was, the opening was almost c e r t a in We were jubilant. Of course, there had been disappointments before. On one occasion, we were so sure the building was ready that we had the celebration planned in advance. Fifteen elephants waited in the barracks for the triumphant p a r ad e The West Coast Symphony practiced fanfares on the roofs of the dorms. The kitchen made twelve thousand gallons of orange KoolA i d. But it was a false alarm, and, despite what the pro grams read, the Hamilton Court Groundbreaking Centennial was he 1 d in College H a 11 It was a bitter blow. But now, we were certain. There was no turning back. Today had to be the day. The night before, we reveled and caroused in the Palm Court. Former students came back on the expectation of a general amnesty. I could hardly believe it when someone told me the names of some of the illustrious ghosts who had retumed, and I accused him of building Cassells inthe air. (This same student, you see, had won second prize for his C ass e 11 which was modeled after Mont St. Michel.) But, before long, I saw for myself that even the Amherst Track Team had come for this glorious reunion. h was to be a grand celebration. By nine a. m. that morning, the crowd numbered over four million, and the parking lot was becoming filled. As a member of the Orien-tation Committee I told arriving guests the science labs were housed in an abandoned warehouse in Jacksonville, the Bam was a hide out for convicted embezzler.>, and the Catalyst offices had once been the home of an eccentric Seminole Indian. Other volunteers handed out souvenir ashtrays in the school colors and solicited contributions for the East Campus Other. Before long, eve:ryone had gathered in front of the new building for the preliminary ceremonies. Twenty-two drum majorettes twirled their batons to the ttme of "Yesterday" while three motorcyclists competed to d e t e t'm in e who could find a way out of the parking lot in the shortest time. Paulson The New College Seal, who was not a traditional heraldic symbol, balanced a large geranium on his nose while t h r e e professors explained simultaneously why they'd thought all along psychology was actually a Natural Science. After the ritual burning of the refrigerators, a c o 11 e g e official stepped forward to unlock the door of Hamilton Court and let us in. This was the moment we had been awaiting for so 1 on g, the climax of our New College careers, the culmination of all our dreams. It was a tense, expectant moment, too, for no one knew just what we'd find in the Court. Some thought a king might be there, this be an appropriate set t i nJt for him, while others suggested students might be allowea to do there what they did privately atthe d or m s Still others suggested it might be a place to play basketball. But none of us was prepared for w h at we actually found when the doors were officially opened and we entered the building. Inside, a judge sat at a low bench. Beside him were twelve good men and true. It was a real court! We were all on trial!: looked arolUld, but even the former newspaper editor was among the a c c u e d I couldn'ttell exactly what we were being charged with, but it devel opeclth:a.baiD.g-on-tba roof no defense. The proctorte.uJed that he had become an expert on girls' voices through a correspondence school course. We were all convicted. As we were led out to be shot I looked around me at the downcast eyes and sad faces of my fellow students. They were dismayed, buti1d expected it, in a way. I'd known that once they opened the building, it would be a letdown. Courtyard Speech Misunderstanding omites told students kitchen Manager Thomas Estep should not have to rush to put the snack bar m working order as he had to do to prepare the dinmg facilities in time for the cUITent Revolutions Conference. Adomites said students should not pressure Estep to open the snack bar, although Estep would cooperate with student demands for an early opening. Vending machines, Adomites emphasized, would be ready soon, but the installation of quality equipment in the serving are as may require postponement of the opening of that facility until September. Crane's Book Store Personal Stationery 109 South Gate Plaza Some students, apparently, in terpreted Ado m it e s 1 rem arks as indicating Hamilton Center dining facilities are not ready for operation, and Estep was "pressured" to begin serving meals today despite the poor condition of the facilities. Adomites emphasized yesterday he had not suggested Hamilton Center dining facilities were not ready, although he indicated Estep had worked quite hard to get the kitchen ready to serve meals at the Conference. Estep told The Catalyst yester-. day only minor, ''technical" difficulties remained in the facility 1 which "could happen anywhere. He said he had received no pressure to begin serving at Hamilton Court and would serve what he hoped would be a "a good meal" at lunch today. Adomites said he had asked Es tep what he could do to prevent student pressure forcing a premature opening of the snack bar. Es tep told .him to bring the matter before the Student Executive Committee.

Persons: NC and Roberto Renaldo, 23-yr-old airport attendant. The conversation was in Spanish. NC: {Looking at watch) Excuse me, can you tell me if they have already announced the flight to Cali? Rob.: No, it has not yet been announced. NC: (naive 1 y) But it was due to leave at 11: 10 am, and it is already 11 o'clock! It is an Aereocondor flight. Rob.: Oh, it has not come in yet. There is bad weather in Cali-many clouds over the airport and the mountains. The delay will be announced soon, I think. Listen: your flight has been postponed until 2 pm. NC: Two pm! Well, do they know for sure that the weather will clear up by then? Rob.: (shrugs shoulders) Do you lmow for sure when you are going to die? It is the same thing. You have to wait and see. You could take a f 1 i g h t to Medellin, then fly from there to Cali. NC: Is Medellin closer to Cali than Bogota? Rob.: No. NC: I'd better wait. I think there are some people expecting me on this flight. Rob. : Friends of yours? NC: 1 hope so. It's a little complicated. Rob.: Where are you from? NC: The south part of the United States. Rob.: Where did you learn to speak Spanish? NC: Most 1 y in high school. Do you speak any English? Rob.: Not a bit. I have never been out of Colombia. NC: Would you like to learn? Rob.: I think so. I would like to visit the States, Mexico. NC: What about Europe? Rob.: No--that's too far away. Do you see that man over there? He is studying English with a book. He is learning some, he says, but he does not speak it very well. NC: It is very hard to 1 earn to speak a language without hearing it spoken. R e c or d s of English speakers might help. Language Exams Given Next Week Foreign language competency examinations will be administered to second-and third-year students next week. Tests in German and Spanish are scheduled for 7 pm Monday, and the French and Russian tests will be given the same time Tuesday. All tests will be g i v en in the language lab in College Hall.
