Volume N, Number 8 SEC-SAC Plan Papers On Educational Policy The Student Executive Committee will attempt to formulate a policy paper on the long-range educational goals of New College in a series of joint meetings with the Student Academic Committee. The necessity for such a position paper became evident at a joint Group Fcres May be Availoble group air fares may be available for students wishing to do mer Independent Study Projects mEurope, accordingtoFrench Tutor John Macbeth. Macbeth said he is trying to arrange a group which will leave New York City around June 15 and return at the end of August. Macbeth noted the students would not have to stay together in Europe. Only students seriously interested in study projects should apply for the trip, Macbeth said. Projects should be cleared with Independent Study Coordinator James Feeney. Information on the approximate cost of the trip, as well as youth hostels, student housing, art seminars, and tours may be obtained Macbeth, at 269, m the language lab off1ce, or at home phone 388-2327 in the eve nings. Co \lege May Enter Basketba II League Recreation Co-ordinator Frank Meyer would like to enter a New College team in the Sarasota City Basketball League if there is enough interest. At least eight players are needed on a regular basis. Students, faculty and staff are welcome to participate. New College teams have competed in the league the past two seasons, but at this point only three "veterans" are committed to play --third-year students Larry Alexander a:td Craig Bowman, and admissions officer Pete 'Odell. The team usually will play twice a week durwg the season, which begins soon. Those interested in playing should contact Meyer or Alexander. Jim Strickland, player-coach for the team last year, will probably not play in the league this year. meeting of the two committees Sunday to discuss SAC recommendations for alternatives to the present language requirement. Among the SAC alternatives was the substitution of four required courses for the language requirement. Several members of the SEC, and Assistant Dean of Students Arthur Miller, spoke in opposition to this alternative, statingthe enumeration ofrequired courses was a step toward "conventionalism. Severa SAC members then argued the alternative did not violate the educational goals of the college. It became evident after more discussion, however, that the goals would have to be defined before the language requirement recommendations could be voted on. The joint SEC-SAC committee will meet Sundays at 2pm and Wednesdays at 6pm until the position paper is completed. Several revisions in the SEC's new guest rule were approved in other business. They are: ---Thatthe shall, and any student may, mterrogate any nonstudents on campus after 8pm. ---Thattheproctor should sign all guest forms. ---That off-campus guests must be in open rooms or on the public campus after the end of intervisitation. Off-campus guests can only stay until the end of open room hours unless they are signed in as overnight guests. It was also pointed out that the new rule limits guests signed in to three per person. The SEC responded to several complaints by Kitchen M.mager Thomas Estep in regard to student conduct. To Estep's complaint that students are feeding who have not paid for meals, the SEC recommended Estep himself police the dining halls, consulting the Dean of Students if necessary. This recommendation followed a comment by SEC Chairman Ted Shoemaker that Dean of Students George Petrie would prefer a "food proctor" to police the dining area. In regard to the theft of kitchen equipment, the SEC recommended Estep compile statistics of the minimum number of each item needed. If at any time the number of these falls below the minimum, an announcement should be issued. If the items are then not returned, Estep should serve food at "minimum level" until the items arc re stored. It was also agreed student sentatives of faculty committees should serve one school term. .r Third-year stude.nt Jerry Neugarten welcomes a couple of local youngsters to Tuesday wght's Halloween Carnival with some candy.

November 3, 1967 Don(eWill l ncludc F il m L i g h t S how Tomorrow night's Halloween dance will be more than a dance, according to social committee chairman Ruth Stange. A psychedelic light show and a horror movie will round out the program. Admission of SO will be charged, and the dance will be open only to members of the college community and their guests. Those who wish are invited to wear costumes. The dance begins at 8pm in Hamilton Center. Music will be provided by the Sole Survivors. Stange said any "profit" made from admission charges will be returned to the Student Activity F1md, which financed the dance. Science Building Seminar Set TheN ew College science faculty, second-and third-year science students, members of the administration, architects and planners will participate in a two-day seminar Tuesday a:td Wednesday on plans for new science facilities. Seminar participants will discuss whatfacilitieswill be necessary in the proposed West Campus science building, which will be the first academic building on the new campus. The buildign will be designed to accommodate a student body of 800, of which 308 first-year students would spend four fours per week in the laboratory, and 148 second-and third-year students 12 hours per week. The program for the science building developed by the faculty in-die ates a need for specialized space of approximately 38,000 square feet, with 400 student laboratory positions. In addition, the building will provide interim space for other disciplines lmtil more buildings are completed. The seminar will begin at 9am Tuesday and continue to 4pm. It will begin at 9am and conclude about 2pm on Wednesday. NC Accepted h College Union New College has been accepted as a member college of the Union for Research and Experimentation in Higher Education, President John Elmendorf announced yesterday. The Union, founded in 1965, is a grouping o 0 colleges that have joined to encourage research and experimentation in higher education. Other members are Antioch College, Bard College, Goddard Cbl lege, Hofstra University, Monteith College, Nasson College, Shimer College, Nottheastern Illinois State College, Sarah Lawrence College J.nd Stephens College. One of the primary purposes of the Union is to foster cooperative efforts in experimentation and research among member colleges. In its two-year existence, the Union has been awarded grants by the U. S. Office of Education, by the Kettering Foundation, and by the Esso Education Foundation for nearly $370,000 to encourage and to explore innovation in higher education. The Union has set forth a number of programs including the establishment of a Center for the Improvement of College Instruction a publication of a maJOr JOurnai on educational innovation; a major program of research on the inno vative process; and a proposal to identify, select and train perso ns interested in innovation in higher education. Acathmic Freedom Code A statement by the Board of Trustees defining academic freedom at New College does not apply to students, according to a vote of the faculty Wednesday. The Trustees' statement, which sets forth liberal guidelines for persons acting as individuals and not representatives of the college, refers to the "college community." The faculty, by a majority vote, defined this as excluding students. Later in the meeting, a statement granting academic freedom to stu-dents acting "within the law" was passed with only token opposition. In other business, a resolution requiring faculty members to indicate whether evaluations are satisfactory, unsatisfactory or incomplete either in the boxes at the top of the evaluation sheet or in the text of the evaluation was passed. Assistant Professor of Literature Dr. Arthur Miller and Mathematics Tutor Roger Peters cast the only dissenting votes. P ascha I Talk Said Depressing Paschal Local broadcaster Guy Paschal said on his radio program last night he apologizes if he has been mistaken in attacking New College for harboring "Marxists" who favor the forcible overthrow of the Am eric an government. boy" he had thought was spouting subversive views denies such a position ;t Wednesday night' s public discussio n between Paschal and the college community in Hamilton Center. C on fused By heitmann Guy Paschal produced a number ofreactionhere, from outright disgust, to laughter, to depression. It cannot be disputed that he is a very intelligent man (who would hassle with motorcycles and Airwick?), and it was very kind of him to say that long-haired boys aren 1t necessarily abnormal, but he still reminded me of the people who come to New College on Sundaysto save us. They listentous gravely, then leave, telling us that we 1re going to hell anyway. Mr. Paschal was obviously faced with a lot of unexpected questions and facts, and he resorted tore p ating that the people that he would expel from New College arc the ones who say that the govern ment of North Vietnam is better than the United States'. The fact that there arcn 't any bothers him and Misinformed not at all. Our country, says he, is a little bit at war, but not at war enough to give the government an excuse to quash dissent; therefore it is the function of the college to restrict its people in ways that \\Ould surely enrage a community of the outside world. According to 1\tlr. Paschal, it is perfectly possible to advocate the violent overthrow of the government between wars. Many of his arguments were based on the assumption that New College students would really like to see Uncle Sam fold and Uncle Ho take over. He seemed genuinely surprised to hear that there are quite a few students here that are trying to make their country "a better place for democracy. He even said that if Jon Shaughnessy was merely protesting U.s. commitments in Asia, they had no quar rel. A veteran of campaigns for private ballots and against sweatshops, Mr. Paschal obviously appreciates the value of disagreement with the government for just causes. Buthethinksthatbecause this government grants more personal liberties than any other, it should protect those liberties by removing them from certain individuals. Mr. Paschal is questing after an order of radical not common to New College. His attitudes are a classic example of the ignorance fostered by willingness to take one 1 s facts from the somewhat hostile sources in the outside world. Per haps he changed his mind Wednesday night, but. I doubt that he will ever trust Don Aronoff's tutoring program. Or perhaps he is, as Dr. Arthur Miller puis it, .. a very sincere man who, as Dr. Riley says, probably confuses change with subversion." He reported to listeners of WSAF' s "Public Opinion" show that "the Paschal Paschal apparently was referring to second-yearstudent Jon Shaugh nessy, whom he had previously identified as one of those who favored "the enemy's" form of gov ernment to ours. Shaughnessy told Paschal Wednesday he does not prefer the Communist form of government--as practiced by Russia, China, or North Vietnam--to ours. He said he does not feel, however, that our nation has any business trying to determine the form of government or society Vietnam will take. Paschal told Shaughnessy he recognizes the latter's rightto organize a protest march in Sarasota against the war. His objection, Paschal said many times during the evening, was the position he had understood a few students took that the American form of government is inferior to the Communists'.

November 3, 1967 Letter .Join Republicans? To the Editor: We have been told for some time that it is impossible to form a political organization on the New College campus due to student ;yathy or perhaps a-political interests, Yet this is difficult to believe from a campus that has xhieved outstanding academic recognition in such a short period of time. In the upcoming presidential convention year the future of the cotm try will once again be in the hands of the voters and the politicians. How much better informed you would be as a potential voter if you take an active part in the selection of the parties' candidates. Whether Democrat or Republican, the political club of your preference can keep you abreast of your local, state and national affairs in addition to providing the opporttmity for involving yourself with practical politics.

'lk (,\l'ffi1\JS'f Literary Supplement Volume 2 Number I Overlooking Below me the mass of traffic had uncoiled itself onto the pavement until by nightfall it had choked the street with its bright tide. It passed through the beerl>ottle I'd balanced on the railing, elongated ambermonstersin anarrow circus parade each crawling car or clot of people flashing a freak otherself for a moment and moving along in the current. Motorcycles rioted by flashing painted helmets as they passed leaving with me the instantaneous profile of a girl eyesclosed clinging to her loud centaur whose mechanical clamour punched into a semisilence I'd imposed on the pulsating voice of the crowd. The gaudy mass of pedestrians began to nm over from the sidewalks into the streets weaving intricately through the cars as little knots of police at each comer tried to keep the disorder from blossoming into complete confusion, sorting out files of bizarre loiterers at the crossings and pwhingnoisy lines of customers backing up at the entrances to clubs, cafes, theatres and bars and shops all along the street. All the refugees from the other lands come to the oasis of The City: from Westchester and Queens, from across the river and the vast stretches of \ aldwell and Montclair and Paterson. Girls out of the suburban wastes in their casually expensive clothing decked out with the calculated insolence of buttons and status toys from headshops and paper boutiques, boys just escapingfrow the oppressive safety of home with their hair combed downed to their eyes, hands in pockets of carefully faded levis holding a week's allowance watching girls from New Jersey the collegiate crowd the real hippies the travellers the carefully stylish loungers who might really b e in a real band and m aybe p retending t hey'd had something more than beer Dod3ing into the -,uffled pandemonium of almost overexpensive club s in the basements o f hastily remodeled brownstones whose crumbling upper storey s opene d windows o n t h e summer night a s in othe r tenements all ove r the city.

With a littl e surgery the narrow mansion above me had been changed into a restaurant from whose porch I was watching the kaleidoscope street, and a pit of flashing light and thrashing sound installed oeneath to siphon some money from the waves of hyperthyroid migrants that surged through the street like this .t nightfall every weekend. And the cmwd curdled and milled and a few came up the steps and some of them were at my table. I was neither anxious to greet or avoid them, sometime friends from odd comers of the city. Drumlin, whose phony erudition was legend in night classes at City College; Buick, a member of the Old Left who wasbomfiftyyearstoo late to carry a fat c.lack bomb and hurl it with a defiant cry beneath the wheds of an aristocrat'; Winnerall, w h o sold his in Califomiaforsixhundred dollars which he invested in a shifty character who must be having a wonderful time in Acapulco; and Ramon Magee, who compensated for the frenzied bursts of energy that won him various academic honours at NYU b y remaining as nearly torpid as possible on weekends. Friends all, renowned for appearing whenever you had money or food, gathered around me (proud possessor of a uine five dollar bill), drinking my beer and ma.kmg conversation that I only drifted ro=d to hear when the show in my beerbottle was boring. "We wouldn't have any of this hassle if everything was free. 11 (Of course it was Buick talking about money.) "I mean, I don't think any of us really cares about money as a thing, you know ... 11 "If we weren't uptight about money we'd get excited about something else. This way I know what's wrong with everything: I don 1 t have enough money. If things changed I'd probably just get confused," Winnerall mumbling in his glass. "They're going to legalize almost everything anyhow. By then if there's anything left you can't get you won 1 t care. 11 "Buick, 11 Ramon cut in, "I really wish you would stop talking about things you haven't got. Somebody always has a few pence, we get by. 11 11Vou're rich. you should talk," Buick retorted. "My father. "No difference. 11 "His mother wouldn't agree, "Winnerall added with an elaborate scanning of the black sky. Ramon sat up. "I really don't want to hear about it As a matter of fact, if it can't get us money or food, let's forget it. 11 ''Well, myplanisthat we all dress plainly and wear black masks and carve guns out of soap and come back here at about three am and stick the place up, 11 conspiratorially leaning foreward Winnerall whispered, "and make the cooks get us a really huge dinner, and then we tie them up while we eat it and creep off into the night. 11 "That's just insane ... 11 "Buick you toad ... 11 began Winnerall and soon everybody at the table was involved in a rapid exchangeofimaginative but friendly insults that I can't even begin to remember until Drumlin quieted evecy one down and got Winnerall's attention and began to speak with a little grin in his eyes. "Now John Winnerall, I am going to pick up this napkin' and you can see it because here it is right. in front of you, ok? Look at it. This is a little exerctse in imagination and sensitivity: you are becoming this napkin. Thin, you crinkle, you whisper when I rub you against yourself. Dry.

Good. 11 Drumlin held the napkin close to John's face and he was just drunk enough to go on with the game and just when Drumlin saw him concentrate on it he crumbled it savagely andthrew it down to the street tmder the boots of the multitude. 11 Clever boy. What was your childhood like, eh?" grumbled Winnerall while everybody got more beer and glanced edgily at me to make sure I was really paying. Ranon slid down into his chair again. "I wonder, if you just started going around asking people, how manyofthemwouldgiveyou how much money. You always hear about people giving the stuff away, there's got to be people evel)'where who have more than they need. 11 "Yeah Winnerall taking it up, "if they just gave a little' like a dollar or even a quarter, I wouldn't mind. i wouldn 1t even try to figure up what it would come to but if we could get everybody in America to send r:s a quarter we'd have it made. 11 "We could incorporate ourselves, make it tax deduct able and maybe people would give us more than a quarter "Buick said and faded out into a little fantasy people would send him envelopes stuffed ,.

Winnerall suggested that we leave but Ramon was still caught in the last idea, and was still talking. ". there's a lot of older, prosperous people even around here. This isn't a cheap place. You wouldn't expect so many straight people around here, but there's a lot inside. Like that one by the door. 11 "Who?" John turned around and we listened. "Oh, Magee was perplexed, the person he tioned had just vanished, "iust some really straightlooking person over there, who really looked out of place.

Oscar It was at The Savoy that I met Oscar. Delancey had assured us that it would be all right, and sure enough we were served, no questions asked, and we had a good time. It made no difference that theywereoutofBuds and we had to settle for Millers, or that 12 ounces of the stuff cost half a dollar. The music was groovy, and most everybody was down loose, one way or another. The music was the kind you just had to move to. Dancing wasn't allowed, though (They needed a license to allow that sort of thing, and licenses do cost money), and a couple of us were politely shooed off the floor. But that was all right. Guys who Jmew how to be a part of the happy music danced that way, individually, and no bartender's going to stop that. I was 18 at the time, and the law says you have to be 21 to have a good time in public, but then The Savoy wasn't exactly public. Can't judge a book b y looking a t the cover, and all that. Anyway, it was at The Savoy that I met Oscar. Funniest thing, but Oscar and I must have talked for an hour and a half that night, and I didn't understand a goddam thing he said, or hardly anything anyway. He was old. Oscar was very old, as far as I could tell. He probably wouldn't have made any sense even if I could have understood him, b ut that's another s t o ry We both were mildly drunk, and the music was very loud. On top of that, he was hard of and his accent was too black for me to decipher. Somehowwe talked for an hour and a half. We had an earnest talk about really important things, I t h ink. Our conversation began innocently enough. "Hi," h e said as he sl i d next to me. A couple of seconds later he had launched into a lengthy monologue on the story of his life, philosophizing intently all the while. Oc casionally, he would stop and hold out his right hand and with a smile ask me 11 ain' t that right?" and of course I would grasp his hand f innly and smile right back. At first I would him whenever I failed to catch what he had said, but Oscar would just smile at me, and after a brief pause go right on with his sto ry, so I gave up. When appropriate moments came, however, I would flash an encouraging smile, or an equally encouraging look of puzzlement. Sometimes I even mumbled a few non-committal responses. These responses always made me feel foolish, but only because I kept thinking of this spade friend of my roommate's who would drawl "yeah, 1 knoooow what youmelll," and I supposed my interjections of "yeah, 1 guess that's right" seemed equally foolish. As it turned out, 1 shouldn't have gotten up tight at all, thanks to Oscar. Sometimes I would catch a few words here and there and launch into monologues of my own, though certainly much briefer than Oscar's. No matter what I said and how irrelevant it was to the queaions Oscar had been talking about, he would liaeD politely M wheD 1 was tluou&b would break b g, and art into his thin :gain. Once in a great while, though, he would extend his hand after I said something, and that made me feel real good. Near as I could make out, Oscar was retired. He had w orked hard at s ome small business he set up, ;nd now his JUandchildren were working it. He was financially secure, though by no means affluent. He w as considering his age, in very good health, and two even rows of glistening whit e teeth flash e d easily between his lips. For a Southern black man Oscar was extremely well off. But Oscar was also v ery old. Very old and very alone. And Oscar had learned to talk without being heard, and, perl1aps, to listen without hearing, as well. "The trouble with the world ... Oscar would begin, ;nd the next string of words would be unintelligible. "What's that?" I would ask, leaning very close to him. Oscar would look at me and maybe offer a sip of his beer. After I'd declined, he would clear his throat, lean close, and start telling me about his grandchildren. And so it went. "Weneedtolove each other," I understood him tell me at one point, and he said it very intensely. Caught by surprise, I could only mumble weakly, "Damn right, or something silly like that. "We need to love each other," he repeated. "Do you understand Drawing by Mary Blakeley me? People got to stop fighting. All these other problems arent1 important. People have to leam to love." The band had just begun "Mercy, Mercy." And here was Oscar waiting for me to tell him he was right. Damn him, I thought. The responsibility of my task was overbearing, if only because it was so simple. I smiled, nodded vigorously, and this time I extended my hand. Oscar slowly took it in his and shook it firmly. In a flash he was rambling on about his grandchildren again. let me tell you, for a local group these guys were fantastic. It was a boogaloo beat, but they were playing real jazz over it. It was the standard instnunentation: sax, trumpet, organ, bass, and drums. Two of them were white, and they were good, especially the organist. But the guy who really Jmocked everybody out was this spade tenor sax man who sat in for a couple of nmnbers right near closing time. Real New York sound. Ideas, too. Oscar listened to the music with a big grin on his face, his right foot tapping a hole through the floor, just like everybody else. I was elected to buy another round for the gang, and the bartender dutifully took my order. I couldn't help but think to myself I wish I were stoned instead of drunk, but I was too dnmk to relly worry about that, and besides, another thought h a d lit up Osca' slit-up brain. We agreed wh atever he s aid w a s just too damn much, and I threw in the flatterer's remark that for an old man Oscar could sure hol d his liquor. Oscar laughed, and I was feeling good. Anyway, things h a d started getting jU$1: a bit ugly by then, as the place was about to close, and the guys who didn't make it th:t night were looking for otherthings to do. Some newly-made friends wamed us it was time to leave so we did. I'm telling you, The S avoy w a s a wild scene, though. I'm going back next weekend. M aybe I'll see Oscar. I still rememberhimsitting with his feet propped up on the t able, as we w alked out. He had a big smile on his face, a can of beer in his hand, and, yes he was talking to himself. "It's been a real pleasure talking to somebody who thinks, Oscar told me whm I got up t o go. "Same here," I s aid. I broke into a big smile, pumped his hand, winked, and staggered out to the c ar. Summflr Girl into every flower we will dance with your hands for the winter your eyes for the spring. but now we must wait for the tom pieces of day to build a morning, for the blush-pink sunset to teach our dreams. but wait lonely for soon i'll catch the silly of your smile --KENJI ODA and be wind-touching rain-kissing you. but wait lonely--for i can look into the heavens and find a star that's almost you --DON GERVICH On M v filhttr But can I shoot away that doubt, Demobilize the enemy distending lead To prove the punch behind my hollow point, Confirming with the bang the wavering good.

November 3, 1967 The Catalyst Page 3 Letter Woshingon on cam us with Laurie PaMIUJfr Sad Fo.r-um To the Wednesday night's forom with Guy Paschal was a sad demonstration of the New College community's inability to come to grips with the outside world. If it were not for the comments of the faculty, the discussion would have continued in its contemulous manner, achieving onlyfrostration and bitterness. Mr. Joy and Mr. Paschal, although not New College ideal types, are fairly accurate representatives of the Sarasota viewpoint. The New College students failed to meet the challenge of the misinformed public by breaking into discussions and by attempts to humiliate the speaker by laughing in his face. We ourselves refuse to be intimidated by the public, we therefore cannot expect the public to be intimidated by New College students. (signed) Daniel R.
