Hamilton Center J:,.. ---es,__pages 2,3,5 & s D D 535 Bl: s AP-Aso-r.A.. Volume III, Oral Exam Panel Third-year students will soon be given the opporttmity to choose a faculty m ember to sit on a ourman panel hearing the student's oral section of the b a ccalaureate examination. The pane l for the oral section of the e xamination, which will be given between J=e 5 and June 30, will consist of two f aculty members in the student's m ajor division, one faculty membe r from outside the division chosen by the College Examiner, and one from outside the division chosen by the student. Third-year students will soon receive a memo asking them to make this choice. The oral exams will probably consist primarily of a defense of the student's thesis, which is due June 5. It has not yet been decided if the examinations will be public. Bubb l ing Electricians from the architectural firm of I. M. Pei of ew York rewired the lights in the fountains in the residence courts this week. The fotmtains are now in operation, and the danger of electrical shock has apparently been eliminated. N eugarten W auld Quit SEC To Remain As Prcmc:utor Second-year representative and cUITent student prosecutor Jerry rten Wednesd y asked th Student Executive Committee not to appoint a new prosecutor. Neugarten said he would rather be prosecutor than SEC member, and would resign from the SEC if Neugarten the vote Monday on the question of SEC membership for the prosecutor resulted in students prohibiting the prosecutor from being a member of the SEC. In other action, the ad hoc committee on constitutional revision in a report to the SEC asked for SEC opinion on three questions: checks and balances among the various student government committees, the requirement that only students may be members of the SEC or VOTE MONDAY R e frigerator Info Students who have refrigerators on campus should identify themselves on lists posted on the campus bulletin boards by the House Committee. Student Judicial Committee, and the appeal of SJC decisions to the SEC. Reg a r ding the first question, N eugarten commented the student check on the SEC, through recall and initiative, was sufficient protection. On the question of the requirement that only students may serve on the SEC and S JC, Assistant Dean Arthur Miller said such a rule would prevent "trouble" when students "suddenly stop being students." Miller cited the cases of former SEC Chairman Mike Cassell and former SEC member David Pini, both of whom were on the committee when their status as students was terminated. Miller said students would be billedforeachterm next year, and a number of students would probably spend at least one term off campus. The consensus of the SEC was that there should be a student requirement for SEC and SJC membership. There was more discussion on the question of the relationship between the SEC and SJC on matters of appeal and constitutionality. To a proposal thatthe SJC may J Udge the constitutionality ot :>t.C decisions, Miller commented "It sotmds like a game of ping-pong using constitutionality instead of little balls. Miller criticized the "circularity" of such a proposal. A supreme court or constitutional review committee independent of boththeSECandSJCwas discussed. The questions were then turned back to the committee. SEC Chairman Tom Jarrell instructed the committee to continue to "broil over" the matter. A resolution that students are willing to wait for the opening of the snack bar in Hamilton Centex tmtilkitchen manager Thomas Estep determines the equipment ready for use was passed without dissent on a motion by first-ycru representative Lee C r a w fort, Crawfort's original motion includ ed the suggestion the snack bao might not be ready tmtil Septem ber, but this was deleted from th< motion at the request of the com mittee members. Second-year student Laurie Paul son spoke to the committee at Jar rell'srequest on guest registration. Paulson suggested a permanent guest card be provided for frequent visitors to campus. One person would claim responsibility for this guest's actions on campus at all times whether or not he was aware of the guest's presence. The card could be voided by informing the proctor no more responsibility for the person would be taken. Committee members spoke favorably of the plan, stating such responsibility would not be lDlder taken tmlessthe person seeking such a card for a guest had complete trust in the guest. No action was taken on the proposal, however. Second-year representative Rick Stauffer said lights should be installed in the parking lot, and suggested student mailboxes be placed in the hallway of the reception area, rather than in front of the desk. The mailboxes were moved by Stauffer and second-year representative Ted Shoemaker after the meeting. College Confab For Orientation Orientation this y ear will consist of a week-long all-college conference on academic and non-academic problems, according to plans devised by the student committee on orientation. Third-year student Sarah Dean, appointed head of the committee by the Student Academic Committee, said the orientation would be for the entire community and not just new students. She quoted third-vear student John Cranor's description of the conference as "collective interrogation." Topics to be disclSSed at the conference may include such matters as: other educational experiments, "subjective involvement vs. detached objectivism" in academic affairs, mass media and the "new culture, the new morality, sex and moral relativism, student use of drugs, popular music, student activism, student govemment at New College, academic requirements, religion, and values in educational institutions. Suggestions for speakers for the conference have included former New College academic dean Dr. Nell Eurich, Robert Theobald, Bemard Lafayette, David Reisman, Harv y Cox, John Hamilton and present third-year student Rach 1 Findley. The student orientation committee will also schedule examinations for new students. A presidential reception and an opportunity for students to meet local trustees and their academic advisors have been suggested. Dean emphasized the orientation would be a discussion of real issues, rather than ready-made questions Dor t To Host Square Dance A square dance and barbecue for students will be held 6 pm tomor raw at the ranch of Board of Trustees Chairman Dallas Dort. Interested students should sign a special list on the Reception Center bulletin board as soon as possible. with set answers. She also indicated some orientation events m a y be scheduled during the first term itself, since "orientation isn't a one-shot thing." Members of the student orientation committee include third-year student Rachel Findley, secondyear student Irving Benoist, and first-year students Tom JarrE::ll, Ellen Tisdale and Barbara Hanna. Dean said the committee is still "searching for" a faculty committee that was reportedly appointed to consider orientation. (Continued on page S, column 5) No Decision On 4 Yoors for '68 Thefacultyhasmade no decision at this point on whether the Class of 168 would be included in the fourth-year option plan, according to Dr. Peter Buri of the Faculty Educational Policy Committee. Buri told Th Catalyst the faculty proposal f o r a fourth-year o p tion was a description of a "stabil ized" situation, and problems of transition have not been resolved. The proposal, which allows students to spread their nine terms of residence across four instead of three years if they so desire, was presented to the Board of Trustees yesterday for approval. At presstime the Board had taken no action. Some second-year students who are interested in opting for a fourth year have noted the requirement that they spend their entire fourth year on campus means they must spend the next year off campus. According to Buri, this may not be desirable, as financial and educational problems are caused by =even use of dormitory space and extremely tmeven class distribution of students. Some restrictions on who may take the option, and when, may be necessary, he said. According to House Committee Chairman Lee Crawfort, refrigerators will be inspected for mechanical defects. An appropriation of $200 from th1 Student Activities Ftmd Committe< forthe yearbook was approved de spite an objection by NeugartCJ that the money should l;le raise< through more advertising. Neugarten cast the only dissenting vote on the motion to approve the appropriation. The trustees and the faculty at a luncheon meeting.


Symposium By Q-IARLES F. RAEBURN The first annual New College Institute on Foreign A f f a i r s was concludedlastSaturdaywith a luncheon address by Dr JosephBlack, Chairman for the Social Sciences of the Rockefeller Foundation. Raeburn Dr. Black's address, "Beyond Popular Revolutions; was a fitting climax to this first conference at New College devoted exclusively to an intellectual topic. New College is a great place for conferences. We have had allcollege m e e tin g s 1 educational facilities laboratories, and New College p 1 ann in g conferences. The Institute on Foreign A f f a i r s, however, was a New College first. It concentTated attention entirely on one intellectual problem: the growth of popular revolutions and their effect on the world's political structure. One of the least mentioned aspects of popular revolution discussed d u ring the symposium was a theoretical treatment of revolution as a political phenomenon. This was a sutprise since a seminar on "The Anatomy of Revolutions" was offered last academic year. Dr. Crane Brinton, author of a book with the same title and McClean Professor of Ancient and Modern flistory at Harvard, and Dr. George (Mayer, Professor of History at New College, taught the course. The Student Committee on International Affairs, which organized this symposium, was extremely pleased by the response of Saraseta townspeople and residents of nearby areas to the symposium. Dr. David N. Rowe, Director of Graduate Studies in International Relations at Yale, spoke on 11 China and the Far East" on Friday morning. His address was probably the most carefully documented and, consequently, most informative. Dr. Rowe has testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on China and how the U. S. should deal with China problems. The Student Committee was highly impressed with the reports The Catalyst Mrs. Hamilton Dedicates Center Mrs. MarjorieHamilton ofVenice, Fla., tmveils dedicatoryplaques, upper left, in ceremonies marking the official opening of Hamilton Center yesterday.

These were given by New College students and provided much information w it hi n a short period of time. This feature will be incorporated in future Institutes. New College student response to the symposium was regrettably small. The Student Committee had hoped to formulate a prQRrarn which would be intellectually stimulating first to New College students, and the Committee feels that we succeeded. Unfortunately, few students chose to participate in the symposium sessions .. Four members of the New College community also contributed their efforts for the success of the symposium. Mrs. Mary Elmendorf, Dr. Geo-rge M. Mayer, Professor Las z 1 o De me, and Mr. William Furlong added depth to several of the symposium seminars due to their experiences in several foreign countries. Students who are interested in working on next year's Institute should contact any member of the Student Committee on International Affairs or Dr. Rollin B. Posey, academic adviser to the committee.

MayS, 1967 The Catalyst Hamilton Center Guidelines Set by Dean of SttKJents A set of guidelines and regulations for the use and operation of the Hamilton Centerfacilitieshasbeen approved by the Dean of Students Office in consult at ion with the Student Executive Committee. Included in the list are rules gov erning student dress in the new dining-classroom complex. DINING ROOM AND SNACK BAR The dining room is primarily the responsibility of the kitchen staff. The food service manager is free to clear the dining room for cleanup as his staff situation requires. The main area of the snack bar will be open around the clock, but there will be counter service only during such hours as the food service manager determines there is a reasonable demand for such service. Food and drink vending machines will be available in the snack bar at all times. Every effort will be made to keep them in operating condition. The large private dining room and the President's dining room are reserved for group use. Arrangements for using either of these can be made through the Public Relations Office. The administration statement that accompanied the guidelines explains: "Hamilto n Center exists primari ly, but not exclusively, for the students and faculty of New Col lege. As such, itis to be operated primarily for their comfort and convenience. It must be recognized, however, that the building The Regulations HOURS WHEN THE BUilDING IS OPEN The main dining room, the lounge, and the restrooms will be open until midnight. The private dining rooms will be locked unless scheduled for group use. The reception center will be manned from 8:30 am until midnight daily. After dinner in the evenings, lighted areas of the main dining room may be used for study spaces. Afterdinneris completed, no food or drink is allowed outside the snack bar. Smoking will be allowed as long as ash trays are used. Notices and similar items may be posted only on the bulletin boards provided. A glass-enclosed bulletin board for official notices from the administration will be provided in the lobby. A general pwpose bulletin board will be available in the snack bar. has an inevitable pd>lic function. Not only will it be a natural focal point for all kinds of casual visitorstothe campus, but it will provide facilities from time to time for events in which the public will be invited to participate. Certain of the following regulations must be understood in the context of this semi-public nature of the building. DRESS Thesnackbaris a student center. Casual dress is appropriate. In other interior areas of Hamilton Center, bare feet are not appropriate and are not allowed between the hours of 9:00 am and 9:00pm. Men must wear shirts except in the snack bar. O assroom situations are, as always, determined at the discretion of the faculty member present. Page 3 Student Charges Discriminati011 First-year student Jon Shaughnessy has charged Dean of Students Robert Norwine and Vice-President Paul Davis with discrimination against the Sarasota Committee to Stop the War in regard to the display of committee literature. In an article in the current issue of the East Campus Other, Shaugh nessy says Norwine and Davis requested the committee to remove literature displayed during the recent foreign affairs conference, while allowing anti-Red China literature displayed by third-year student Chuck Hamilton to remain. Shaughnessy says N orwine and Davis asked the removal of the literature because of a "bumbling desire to leave the image of New College untarnished by the taint s of liberalism. 11 He said he was told "it just woul

Page 4 Editorial Secular Revolt Many educators, according to a U. S. News & World Re X>rt accotmt of "Revolt in Some Catholic Colleges, 11 argue llat "Catholic teachers are free to 'probe' and to question 1pproved doctrine, short of declaring it to be false. !t Exlctly who is putting whom on with that statement is not but the fact remains that many Catholic educators do eel they are caught in the academic straitjacket of dogmaism and "arbitra.IY administrative rule. 11 A successful strike of students and teachers a t Catholic Jniversity in Washington, D. c., April 20 over the arbi rary firing of a 11liberal" priest-theologian attracted naionwide attention. The Catholic education system in gen !ral, according to otre D ame historian Dr. Philip Gleason, 'is presently involved in the same sort of secularization pro :ess that led to the loss of religious identity in leading \merican Protestant un i v e r sit i e sin the late nineteenth :entury." Miss Jacqueline Grennan, a former mm and now president ,Webster College, expressed what is becoming a somewhat espectable view: 11It is my personal conviction that the very aturc of higher education is opposed to juridical control Y the Church. n We agree and thus we were quite happy o read the following statement by a very import ant member four Board of Trustees: "The ecumenical chttrch must reate to education not as proprietor but as servant and critic. 11 The statement is significant because it was made by Wesey A. Hotchkiss, who happens to be General Secretary of he Division of Higher Education of the United Chttrch of ::hrist. And for those of you who have forgotten, the United :burch of Christ happens to sponsor New College. "It is increasingly evident that a college's self-concept 1ustbe either that of a church institution or that of an eduational institution, 11 he writes in the United Omrch of :hrist's Journal. It is clearwhich concept he prefers. 11The osture of the commtmity of faith is to discern i!2 the eduational world those forces which it believes God is using ) redeem the educational process. 11 The process of eduation is what is relevant today. "To present the church ollege as some kind of spiritual fall-out shelter against the nowledge e:lq.Jlosion istm-Christian and philosophically dis ouest." The integrity and progressiveness of om Board has been ratifying, for a secular board is just as capable of 11arbi ary l'Ule" as an ecclesiastical one. The Board has left the ampus commt.mitywithfreedom to r un its day-to-day-c d u ational affairs without interference ; yet it h a s maintaine d s commitment to a deeply felt ideal. An innovative college, as President Elmendorf said, must -:Jw to utility and integrity:'' Utility, because we must surive; and integrity, because we must have something to nvive for." First Campus Will Be Held Sunday HUMAN BE-IN. BRING A TOY. LOVE. Colorful, cryptic, art nouveauish posters bearing such messages have sprung up suddenly on this campus and at Ringling Art School, Manatee Junior College, and Stalker's Leather and Handicrafts. Those who can read them find they have been invited to a "bein" at New College Sunday afternoon. What' s a be-in?

Apparently no-one is organizing the be-in; such is the nature of the event. A group of New College studentsdecidedto have one, they have advertised it, and now they will let it "be." The theme is love, Gordon says, in the tradition of the mass be-ins held recently in New York and San Francisco. LOVE A COP, reads one sign. "Jelly beans, man! Gordon continued. "Flower power!" Hippiness, read happiness, has apparently been invited to New College. Second-yearstudent Ruth Stange predicts, "It's going to be a hap py."

The Catalyst I LeHers Barefoot in the Mouth To the Editor: So we are moved into Hamilton Court, officially and officiously. Officially, with the motmting of the Hamilton coat of arms on the wall, and the short-sleeve pageantry of the dedication ceremonies necess::uytokecpNew College sufficiently within the world of pseu d o e v ents for t h e o ut s ide world t o hear of us through the wondrous techniques of public relations. And officiously, with the enforcement rules prior to their notarized enactment. Id est there are discrepancies the sheet they gave out as a tour guide, and what the SEC has been given to understand are the "lenient", "compromise", ad hoc decisions by the people in ad ministration who are concerned with maintenance and the obviously limitless capabilities of students to desecrate buildings (and alienate potential sources of ftmds). The Tour Guide says that Hamilton "Center" "was constructed to provide varied facilities for the tmdergraduates. 11 It states further that the area now referred to assimply "The Lounge" is a "Stu dent Lotmge furnished in comfortable style to encourage student:, to gather here for informal conversations." Comfortable--in shoes. And that luxuriantly soft and spongy wall-to-wall carpeting in the dining area, just crying out to be trod upon by delicate soles. Boko-maru is denied us, however. We were told that our naked feet were the cause of the college's losing many money, and that we should sympathize with the administration and not deliberately ant agonize them as wouldneverWJ.derstand the rites of the Noble Savages. Apparently, the administration was never snared into saying in writing "Wait 'til Hamilton Court opens because they're using the same arguments on us again. We axe Savages, they believe now; until we demonstrate that we are noble. But I for one am q_uite eager to stage a bloodless revolt over such a seeminglytrivialthing, because my reaction to hearing the financial ar gument invoked so blithely is "Send me them peoples. I want to talk at them. A little cross-cultural monologue might do them some good. And although I don 1t rtm to paranoid extremes, I can almost understand how some: students are beginning to think they might be only incidental to the school. Seems at times that we might be mere apptntenances to the insti tution as a self-perpetuating thing, that the businesslike attitude of the efficiency expert may prevail. I was mildly horrified Parents' Weekend by the view offered by Mr. Rogers, that the life of an institution is all-important and everything must be sacrificed to its continuation. While I agree with Riesman that students must be made to realize that they axe quite capable of destroying an -stitution, I think New College has no right to survive if it shows no progress in the directi o n of w hat it could and should be--that the institution deserves death if it does not serve the individuals involved. The SEC decided last Wednesday that the students have a good case for barefooted breakfasts, and in deed barefootedness in Hamilton Court generally except between the hours of 9 and 9, and barefootedM ness at all times in the Reception Center. This should seem reasonable to those who sympathize with the administration's difficulties. However, baxefootedness is pe:thaps more than a privilege and less than a right. I'd be most happy to par ticipate in a bloodless revolution for the cause of simple soles, if I could only win the s c h o o 1 some money by persuading some money into the school's coffers from some relative swinger wh:> appreciates Stop the War The following open letter to the faculty from Assistant Professor of Philosophy Dr. Gresham Riley will be circulated next week and is repnnted here courtesy of the Sara sota Committee to Stop the War. To the Faculty: In recent weeks political observers, particularly James Reston of the New York Times, have noted the emergence of a new attitude on the part of President Johnson and his administration toward the war in Vietnam. During these weeks therehasbeenlesstalk of a peaceful settlement and more talk of the possibilities for our gaining a "military victory". As the pressures in crease for a "military victory", decreased attention will be given to the political and economic issues lying at the basis of the conflict. Once again an unconditional surrender will be demanded of an enemy, and the present war effort will almost certainly escalate to still further frightening dimensions. Throughout the cotmtry concerned members of the college and tmiver sity commtmity have voiced their protests of our military involvement in Vietnam and have requested that the Administration step-up its efforts to initiate peace talks. At a time when it appears May 5, 1967 such things in students. Until then, I'll have to accept the administration 1 s arguments (u n 1 e s s I could prove that barefootedness is neither a deciding factor nor significant contributory factor in some money not coming in. Otherwise, (signed) T o m J3.1Tell Student Approval Too To the Editor. It was announced to the SEC this week that a new bulletin board will be put up in Hamilton Center for the posting of a anouncements which must first be approved by the administration. Since Hamilton Center's purpose is "to provide facilities for the undergraduates", it seems to me that announcements posted by the administration might also first be approved by a student representative. The protecting of images can work two ways. Sincerely, S. Dean Supported asthoughthe war may enter a new phase, it is appropriate that con cerned members of local academic communities join with other interested residents of the Sarasota Bradenton are a in a protest of con tinued military escalation. The Sar:oota Committee to Stvr> the War has been organized recently by a group of students. This group hopes to broaden the debate in the local commtmity of the Viet nam war. Such activities as pro viding speakers for civic and service clubs, distributing literature and participating on radio inter view programs are projected as means for securing this end. If this effort is to succeed, it is important that the Committee become something more than a student venture. For this reason it is necessary that all concerned persons whether liberal or conservative in their political commitments, whoopposethe war on poltical, religious, philosophical or moral grounds, unite in a protest effort. If you are interested in joining the Sarasota Committee to Stop theW ar or in securing more information about the Committee, please contact Jon Shaughnessy at Box 1898, New College.

Prendergast said the dance, which will be scheduled for a date between the Senior Thesis deadline of June 5 and three weeks before Comprehensives, hopefully will be held at the Landmark Hotel on Lido Beach. After last )lear's dance at the hotel, the Landmark indicated they would welcome a dance there the following year. Preliminary plans for the dance include a buffet dinner provided by the Landmarl< and the hiring of two bands, one to play fast music and the other slow. Coeds May Enter S mle Contest New College coeds who believe they have winning smiles have a chanceto win a camera, swimsuit or a $500 scholarship locally or to tty for a trip to Hawaii, a new car, and other prizes in national competition. The "Miss Smile" contest begins tomorrow at 2:30 pm, and any youngladymayhaveherphototaken (head only) at the Maas Brothers camera shop iD Sarasota for entry in the competition. Local entty deadline is May 13. Winners will go on to a state-wide contest and then to the n:U:ionals. Judging will be by the Maas Bro thers management. Dr. and Mrs. Elmendorf have said theywould provide breakfast after the dance, Prendergast said, and students will be able to use their pool. Since the possibility of dist:.ITbing Landmark guests prohibits a late dance at the hotel, Prendergast is still not sure what students will do between the dance and breakfast. Cost of the dance will be about $ 1. 50 per student, according to Prendergast. She expressed hope tickets sales combined with money from the S t u d en t Activities Fund and faculty contributions will be sufficient to pay for the dance.

He was afraid of wa1king there, afraid for the t*gile mgnt, aDd how easUy it could be shattered by the slightest sound. He remembered her as he passed under the low branches, and was not hurt by the memory. Three men watched him from the hotel veranda, spoke briefly of his late walking, and turned to go inside where their w i v e s sat talking of the unseasonable cold, and snow in the high mountains. (I was so uncertain, and every moment was astonishing, an unexpected turning in a marvelous ioad through some crystal wonderland. And all mythoughts were for the next turning. I was lost, not knowing I had found the castle I imagined at the road's very last mile.) He crossed the road to the dark mountain, and walked toward the lake. Despite his c aut i on, dry leaves rustled as he went. Not far away, a deer, startled, leaped from a h i d d e n clump of bushes and bounded toward some deep stream. At the hotel, the men sat listening, for a few minutes, to their wives' t a 1 k 1 then wandered to admire a glass case displaying some things sold in the gift shop which had closed an hour befc:u. (In the future, I lost the present. In knowing how things should end, I lost their living. On days of sparklmg rain when she talked and laughed like the JOY of free and open clouds, I listened for what I thought she should say, and cried when I didn't hear it. ) He stood, finally, by the side of the lake which caught p i e c e s of the m o on and sent them echoing across the water to meet the high mountain at the other shore. Far away, the deer drank, trembling, from the deep stream, and heard only the wind in the bra n c h e s Bored, the three men found some cards at a table near the wall, but fouod, after some discussion, that there was no game they all knew.

We are confident in our ideal vi sion, and devastated when life cannot match the dream.) He k n e 1 t at the soft grass and held his face close to the surface of the w ate r.
