DR & MR J HN ELMEl IDORF 535' BLVD, OF PRE IDENTS SA OTA, FlORIDA 33577 Volume III, Number 18 January 20, 1967 College Receives Report Committee Of SACS Acting chairman Steve Hall, left, and second-year representative Ken)i Oda at Wednesday's SEC meeting. C ollege officials received Tuesday the full report o f the visitation committee o f the Southern Association o f Colleges and Secondary Schools. Citing the college's "distinctiveness and Wliqucncss as an institution trying to find a new way toward excellence," the committee foWld little to criticize in their report. The committee recognized the SEC Sets Vote Monday A ballot will be held Monday on proxies, intervisitation, and Student Executive Committee seniority ranking, the SEC decided at its meeting Wednesday. Asecondballotwill be held February 1 to elect a new SEC chairman to replace former second-year student Mike Cassell, who resigned SWlday. Monday's ballot will contain two s e p a rate questions on the use of proxies by the SEC. One will ask whether proxies should be used at any time by the committee. The o1herv.:ill ask whether proxies should be used only during Independent Study Period, assuming their general use is disallowed. A on SEC s iority Hill con1ain twochoic s : to allow a student replacing an SEC member who has resigned to assume the ranking of the member he replaces, or to require him to assume the lowest ranking among m e m b e r s of his class. Students receiving the high-Kronenberg est number of votes in any class serve on the College Cotmcil, and thus a ranking system is "'lecessary. The question on ranking was raised by second-year student Jerry N eugarten, who indicated his intention to run for SEC chairman. Academic Committee member Findley said a questionnaire v.ould be distributed to students opinion on the teaching ability of specific faculty members. Thirdyear student John Peters and second-yearstudentHany Felder were approved as new academic committee members to replace David Pini and Mike Cassell. Hall, who is also acting chairman of the SEC, indicated he is still looking for missing room permis-sion forms. Upon a question by Assistant Dean Arthur Miller, he said he did not know when the Judicial Committee will meet to consider December cases. House Committee chairmanOda reported room phones would cost about $5 to ins t a 11 and $2 per month. He also reported a questionnaire would be distributed to students regarding snack bar hours. Tom Todd. chairman of the Food (Continued on page 2 column 5) Attempt Fails To Repeal -An attempt to repeal the deletion of Rule Six from the Student Code failed at the meeting of the Stu dent Executive Committee Wednesday. The rule, which specifies signout procedures, wasdeleted by the SEC the previous week. The rmsuccessful move followed a comment by Assistant Dean Arthur Miller that Dean Norwine would continue the rule in the same form as an administrative rule. An observer, third-year student Tom Todd, asked the committee whether they had investigated the ramifications of the rule removal and the college's responsibility in the matter of signing out. He also asked why the committee "always takes away student powers" the college is willing to grant. Acting chainnan Steve Hall said students did not want to en f o r c e the sign-out rule, and one student's parentshad threatened the college with legal action because the student was not reprimanded for failing to sign out. First-year repre-More Than 'Normal' sentativ e ] on Shaughnessy stated the committee should "make it clear" students do not want to sign out. First -year representative K at i e Smith replied it was 11not asking too m u c h to require students to sign out. Lee Crawfort, also a f i r s t -y e a r representative, then moved the SEC repeal its deletion of the rule. Smith seconded the motion. During discussion of the motion, second-year representative Kenji Odasaidsometimesitis impossible for students to sign out, especially ifthey are unsure of their destination, and missing an important message would be enough punishment for them. The motion failed by a vote of 3-2. Voting for repeal were Smith and Craw fort, and against were Shaughnessy, Oda, and second-year representative Jerry Neugarten. Following the vote, Todd asked the committee "when the trend toward defining its areas of respon(Continued on page 2, column 4 ) Load college's continuing financial struggle as well as the "regrettable separation" of the dormitory area and the library. On the whole, however, New College measured up to the standards of the association. "One of (the college's) great as sets," the report said, "is the fact that it appears (its) students and faculty are here because they really want to be, that each of them could have been admitted or employed at another major institution. Morale seems to be very high, thanks to a well-fostered sense of participation in the building of a new which is 1on the make, 1 on its way." Notmg the "extremely difficult first year," the report says the president "seems to be steering a steady course, with full cooperation of the faculty and board." "There is evident, 11 the report went on, "an atmosphere of family belonging, with everyone knowing his role in the development. The committee said the size of the student body "in relation to programs and institutional costs is extravagantly small" and added a continual review of enrollments in in relation to progran and economic strength should have high priority with the administration and the board." Specialization was pointed out by the committee as one of the risks of the college' s graduate-lik gra.rn, a.J.t.lloug1 1 t..h committee re-cognized "cotmter forces t o this tendency. Studentswill also be asked about intervisitation. The present student rule will be q u o t e d on the ballot, and students will be asked if they wish to retain or delete this rule. Astatement that the administration intends to enforce the rule even if it is d e 1 e t e d by students will also a p p e a r on the ballot. First-year re presentative Jon Shaughnessy objected to this statement appearing, claiming that it would make the ballot "less of a b a 11 o t and more of a tool of the administration. However, a motion to include the statement passed 3-2. Why Do Natural Science Maiors Others? A motion by Shaughnessy to inc 1 ud e a question on hours in the intervi.sitation referendum failed for lack of a second. In oth r action, second-year student Kenji Oda was elected secretary of the SEC, replacing thirdyear representative Rachel Findley, who resigned. Supervisory Committee Chainnan Katie Smith r ported no on had indicated an intention to run for Chairmanofthe Judicial Committee to replace second-year representative Steve Hall, who indicated last week he intends to resign. Hall said h would s rve out his term as JC chairman. Take More Why do natural science majors take considerably more than a "normal" course load and students in the other divisions considerably less? A recent study by college examiner John French of patterns of courses taken by the class of 1967 poses this question. In his report, French presents evidence "to support the theory that these differ ences are a ftmction of student ability. II According to F,rench 1s report, "the natural scientists take as many as twice the number of courses as students in some other (major field) groups. He breaks this down to an average of 21. 6 term cours s per students majoring in natural sciences, 12. 7forhwnanities and 13.2 for social scienc s. A 11nonnal11 course load, French Courses Than suggests, is 16 term courses per students. Inhis study, the number of term courses per student ranged from 10. 5 to 23. 4. "High numbers of courses, 11 the report says, "are closely associated witbhighSAT1s and high numbers of courses are also somewhat associated with high ranks-in-class (high school). 11 French asks whether his survey "confirms the criticism that the Natural Science program is too de mandJng711or"Doesitm relymean that there is something in the na ture of a s::ience program that develops into more numerous course unitsratherthan an equivalent load of supplementary reading? 11 or "Has the Natural Science faculty b en more successful in motivating students?" French "Tite only other word of caution rclat d to the curriculum" which the committee offered concerned the limitations imposed by the size of the faculty. "The normal growth of the institution will relieve this situation, 11 the says, ''but until this growth has taken place, the college should avoid expansion into new responsibilities. 11 The report incbdes words of praise for the faculty. Calling faculty members "amply prepared" and of an "esp cially high" intellectual level, the report says, "the committee members would be proud to have most of them on their own faculties. 11 N w College's needs were not overlooked by the reporting committee, however. They recognized the library as "one of the needs of New College" and commented on the necessity for more classroom space. Money was seen by the committee to be one of the college' s greatest concerns for the near future. According to the report the college depends upon gifts and grants for approximately 58% of its total budget and must raise externally 6 5 % of the basic educational and general costs. The report also notes the cumulative operating deficit o f $402,500. In general the committee report is highly favorable to the college.

Page 2 The Catalyst January 20, 1967 Editorials Here We Go Again Our student representatives, concemed lest the true will of the students may be thwarted, are giving us another op portl.Ulity to express ourselves on intervisitation. WHAT'LL We DO WITH ANOTHER ONE? \.5EC riLES ] They will not be satisfied, it seems, tm.til the students answer "coiTectly" and approve the removal of intervisitationfrom the student rules. What they fail to realize is that the students have already expressed their preference--and more than once. Given the fact intervisitation will continue to exist as a rule enforced either by students or administution--how can we prefer to give up another of our precious few remaining areas of responsibility? We continue to believe students are capable of disciplining themselves--and we continue to prefer that they be allowed to do so. Don't Be Fooled The use of proxies in representative government violates a basic principle of democracy. The voters elect their representative to speak for them and to vote for them in the representative assembly. They do not elect him to delegate his duty to represent them. Our constitution already provides for alternates--the next best thing to elected representatives--so that the business of the Student Executive Committee may be carried on in the instances when too few members are present. If we change the system to allow the use of proxies, we will greatly increase the opportl.Ulity for abuses in our govemment. The Student Executive Committee has hedged its bets by choosing a ballot form which gives them two chances to have proxies voted for. If the use of proxies is bad anytime, then it is just as bad during Independent Study Periods. Don 1t be fooled by a "third choice" or a "compromise" which is no compromise at all. Only a few weeks ago, in an election conducted according to the constitution, enough students voted against proxies to prevent their use by the SEC. There has been no evidence presented to change their opinion.

N eugarten replied drinking, guest sign-in, and guest hours were still concerns of the SEC. Acting chairman Steve Hall commented the SEC does not deal exclusively with student rules at its meetings. Latin American Youth Assistant Dean Miller asked if the 31 students who f ailed to sign oU: for Cltristmas vacation should be dealt with b y the administration. Various membe rs of the committee indicated the administration should deal w ith the students. An. observer, second-year student Lawrence Paulson, the students would not understand the administration handling a violation which was, at the time of the offenses, under the student code. Amplify Political Movements A motion was then made that the Judiciary Committee should hear the cases of the 32 students. The motion passed unanimously. University-educated and "elite" youth of Latin America amplify ratherthan create political movements, according to Dr. Arpad von Lazar, assistant professor of political science at Vanderbilt Uni versity. An. expert on Latin Am eric an politics, von Lazar made that observation during a seminar discussion with New Coll;!ge students Wednesday about problems of research and study in Latin Am eric a. The seminar was the first of three. The others will be given this Wednesday and the Wednesday after. Attendance at prior seminars is not a pre-requisite for subsequent meetings. Von Lazar will also conduct an informal public lecture and discussion at the March 3 Forum in College Hall.

Doctors Discuss Sex on Campus A panel of three specialists led a "mainly informational" discussion on sex and campus life with some 40 New College co-eds Tuesday in College Hall. Psychiatrist Dr. Sam Warson, urologist Dr. James Kicklighter, and gynecologist and obstetrician Dr. VemonFinch briefly addressed the girls and then opened the floor for questions and discussion. Warson began the session by stressing the significance of emotional and psychological effects of sex as an experience. People who "sleep around," accordingto Warson, are suffering g r ave emotional problems. S t a b 1 e relationships with one member of the opposite sex are the most meaningful and healthy, he said. In response to a question about ethical problems involved in the prescribing of birth-control pills to minors without parental consent, Finch said he would feel very different about prescribing pills to a girl living at home with her pa-rents as opposed to a girl living away from home at a college. He said he would feel much more justified in prescribing pills for girls 1 i vi n g away from home in such cases, as they would have assumed more self-responsibility. Finch also noted birth-control pills are the most dependable contraceptive device available "if taken correctly, 11 but other contraceptive methods might be more appropriate in individual cases. He noted the regularity with which the pills must be tal

January 20, 1967 The Catalyst Page 3 Conference Suggestions Cover Many Areas of College Re-arrangement of the academic calendar, an optional fourth year, appointment of an independent study co-ordinator, mandatory evaluations for first -year students after the first term, and off-campus residence were a few of the many topics covered in the brief prelim inary reports presented at the conclusion of Saturday's All-College Educational Planning Conference. Recommendations from the 10 discussion groups touched on very basic as well as relatively superficial aspects of the New College program. Participants in the conference inevitably fotmd their as signed topics overlapped. Interestingly, however, only ahandful of conflicting proposals were presented. The most flmdamental issue was choosing between a basic three year and a basic four year program. Group 1, which was Charged with discussion of the college calendar, reported a majority opinion that the three -year system be maintained, but with slight calendar revision and an option for a fourth year. The proposed calendar would begin with a four-week independent study period in the fall, followed by an 11-week term, Christmas cation, a four-week study period, a 10-week term, a two-week break, a 10-week term, and a nine-week summer vacation. "The purpose of the rearrangement, according to reporter David Moore 1 "is to provide a long block of time during the summer for faculty members to work on their own research, planning for courses, and writing. The first independent study of tl!e year--the first item in the cale,l dar--would be done by the second and third year students only and would be planned extensively the year before. "Half or a major portion of the f aculty would not be on campus during the f irst study to 13-wcek vacation and independent study period free each year." Moore said a minority opinion was for a four-year, nine-month program with an option for an accelerated three-year program. The proposed fourth-year option in the three-year plan would involve spending "two to three terms within the second and third years' away from campus "tmder consultation of the actdemic ad visor." Group 6, which discussed "Prob lems of Transition to the Post College Years," concurred in the re commendation of a four-year alternative. Esther Lynn Barazzone, reporting for this group, noted students here "very often are not able to get out and get perspective on the academic world and its relevance to (them)" since they spend almost the entire year on campus tmder the three-year program. "It seemed to us that it would be very good to have, I supoose it would be a nine-month system, where a student would be off campus one term every year. This way (he) would be exposed to a variety of experiences ... And this should be done at no additional cost to the student. 11 In further recommendations, Esther Lynn reported, 11 We encourage much more increased contact with outsiders--Or. Riesman's (Professor David) term was 'non-academic intellectuals. "We propose that they be brought in and be allowed to stay in the college for periods of time and interact with students. "We suggest there are many more opporttmities for non -academic personal development ....

We also suggest that the college make available more opporttmies for learning such skills as sports. "We also suggest th:t there be other adjustments .. that make it easier to adjust to ordinary social situations, that certain college oolicies be re-examined--namely, the college attitude toward offcampus living. I think it's very valuable that students be allowed to live off campus. We also suggest tha t the college re-examine its policy toward married students. "The (should) look into the possibility of hiring a cotmselor who is not a faculty member. 11 In a subsidiary remark, Esther Lynn reported, "We question the concept of the major and vefjl;e on suggesting a category of in-depth study rather than a major. Jerry N eugarten, reporting for Group 7 ("General Studies and Spe cialization"), noted his group had arrived at a similar conclusion. He reported four classes of "majors" had been defined: ( 1) the trad:rt:ion a1 disciplinary major; the double major; (3) the "reduced" double major--"Youdon'tharetodo quite asmuchwork in each (as in a resz ulardouble major)"; (4) the interdisciplinary majorthat is centered arotmd a "unifying concept" such as "power. 11 For the most part Neugarten's report recommended the status quo be maintained. He recommended the only requirement of the third year be a senior project, and seniors be allowed to either specialize or generalize as they wish. Paul Hansma, reporting for group 8 ("The Curricular Design of the Senior Year"), disagreed with Neugarten on this point. Hansma argued diversification should be required of seniors. "This requirement would protect the student from pressure to do work exclusively in his major. We feel that diversification at this time is important because it is the real opportunity for a student going on to specialized study in a graduate school (to diversify}." Hansma reported, however, his group concluded students should not be required to pass a baccalaureate exam upon completion of a senior thesis. "We do not approve of granting honors on NC degrees, he concluded. "A NC degree should be a strong statement in itself. Group 4 ("Independent Study") came up with what many students feltwere the most interesting proposals of the conference. Steve Orlofsky reported the following recommendations from that group: "Independent study is sound and should be extended and made more flexible; i.e., the scope of &llowed proJects should be extended. One Recommendation College officials are in the process of implementing at least one of the recommendations arising from Saturday's educational planning conference---that students be allowed to travel during an optional fourth year here. According to College Examiner Dr. John French, a number of students have expressed interest in studying abroad fora year-between the regular second and third years of study on campus, and one such student has agreed to present a travel itinerary in the near future. "If he can submit a pl:a.n which indicates he is seriously pursuing a senior thesis," French said of this student, "and his travel plan makes it obvious the trip is necessary for the particular senior thesis, 11 then the Academic Council would ap prove his program. Although details of any policy of this type still need to be worked out, French told The Catalyst a studentwho spends a year in travel would pay tuition, but the money would be refunded to him as a "travel grant. 11 The college has no intention of subsidizing such travel i n any other way, according to French. A student on financial aid in such circumstances will c ontinue to receive aid when he returns to cam-pus for his regularthird-yearwork. Students who choose to remain a fourth year on campus in order to fulfill three-year graduation requirements, etc. must pay full tuition, room and board costs. This policy in the past has made it difficult for students to take a term's leave of absence. Such stuSARASOTA CYCLE KEY SHOP s.m .. S......

It leveled the street and sidewalks and drives and little hills of front 1 awn rising to entrancew ays, until there was a p 1 a in of white we were all held by. But we didn't need the snow to h o 1 d us, because there was a tree to erect, and presenu co arrange in paper and ribbon, and a hundred other stored-away Christmas Eve things to do, all the things from years of houses and families and generations. And it was w a r m and comforting, like any ritual. In my room upstairs, which seemed strangely s m a 11, I knew the snow was JOining with a quiet grace the roof-ledge outside the window. It was warm and bright and familiar in the room, and the comfort did not fail to touch me. But it touched me and caught me and merged itself with the driving whiteness until I felt trapped and imprisoned by the vexy softness of its protection. I had somehow been stolen from life and placed in a distant chamber, insulated from every real voice and uncertain action, in coming here for Christmas. And despite the elegance of the snow and the soft music of the distant carols, echoed by the roof of the winter storm, I longed to stand under globes of light in a court of palms, and feel the world touch me. In every house, in every street of my town, lives were closed and hidden. All that came from the houses were the daily, business faces, and there was no standing to watch the changes made by warm wind-lightened evenings, no knowledge of Joy and sadness beyond the tiniest of circles. It seemed as cold and forbidding as the s now that cl o s e d it for the night, and kept it, sleeping, until Christmas morning. I thought ol. all this on Saturday when some one in our planning group said that the New College gam e was relationships, and our attitude introspection. In a sense, it was a light and easy thing to say, but I remembered the many times, at home for Christmas, that I'd wanted to wander to the palm court just to see the people there, and to talk to them. I remembered the sense of lCISS and sadness when I realized I couldn't. And I understood I had been given something far greater tha.n a.ny casual gift af knowing, by this place. In many ways, we are bound together, for we are isolated both in the uniqueness of our venture and the human distance of the outside commUlity. There are few enough of us so that we know an extraordinary amount, perhaps Paulson too much, of each other. We are inescapably involved with e a c h other in a close and sometimes wonderful association. Our hves are contained by the very limits of buildings, and we see with an often disturbing clarity the source and ending of all our actions. And through this closeness, through the careful boundries of our world, we come to realize, more strongly than any other s i n g 1 e truth, the value of other people, And so the is carried gently bythe breeze and placed among us. It set t 1 e s among hopes and expectations and dreams and despair and the fondest reverence for any uncertain evening. It touches every searcher ofthe secret chambers of the day, and runs on to hint at what is hidden in the darkness.
