Volume IV Number 10 Florida Novembe r 17, 1967 Re-affirm ISP Policy Fin.1:-year students must do their first two independent study proJects in different divisions, the faculty re-affirmed at its meeting Wednesday. Exceptions to the policy must be approved by the office of Independent Study ProJect Co-ordinator James Feeney. The faculty voted the resolution to clear up confusion resulting from differing statements on the subject in college literature. Some of the trustees, in conference in the Fishbowl SEC Sends to College Council Strong Proposal on The College Council will meet today to consider a disciplinary recommendation by the Student Executive Committee Wednesday in the case of third-year student Luke Salisbury. Salisbury, who is on social probation, ple.ded guilty to an intervisitation violation charge before the Student Court Monday. The court's recommendation, that Salisbu.rybesuspendec!forone to three terms, was presented to the SEC Wednesday. The SEC's recommendation, however, was consider:bly stronger than voted by the sc. The p:;ssage of the SEC's disciplinary proposal, which occurred only after lengthy discussion in a closed meeting, was by a seven to one vote. The lone dissenter was third-year representative Larry Alexander. The motion required a two-thirds vote of the SEC. The motion, made by third-year representative Laurie Paulson includes two options for Salisbury. He may either accept suspension for five consecutive terms, and not graduate before Commencement, 1970, or be suspended for the next three consecutive terms, submitting evidence he has "made progress in psychological counseling," before readmission, and be on social probation for two terms after readmission. lf Salisbury accepts the former option, he will have no disciplinary sanctions against him upon readmission. Both options go into effect next term. Petition Circulated A petition was reportedly circulated last night by several thirdyear students protesting as too se -vere the action recommended by the Student Executive Committee against Luke Salisbury. The petition apparently will be submitted to the College Council, and will be submitted by student representative Steve Hendricks. Propeller Crisis Wh:t'sthis] A group of businessmen taking their pet propeller for a walk? It was no joke for a couple of students this week when policemen knocked on their door with a warrant, confiscated the prop e 11 e r, and charged them with grand larceny. The propeller was one of nine ultimately returned to the AeroPropeller Co., from whose warehouse they were taken by students as room decorations. The other eight were returned after a room search was instituted by the Dean of Students' Office and the Student Executive Committee. Charges against the students involved were dropped after Assist ant Dean of Students Arthur Miller produced a photograph of the warehouse. The place is a "dilapidated, caved-in hangar, Miller argued. He revealed that students appropriatedthe propellers only became "amemberofthe college community" had been told by an airport guard the warehome was a "junkyard" ready to be burned down. Miller told The Catalyst he does not condone such casual appropriation "even from a junkyard," however, and cautioned students to make certain in the future that what seems like junk really is. Salisbury SEC members indicated all possible disciplinary a:::tions were discussed at the meeting. It was emphasized Saisbury will probably have no trouble !!P-ining readmission if the conditions of his suspension are fulfilled. Questioned :iter the meeting, Paulson said "We made the changes we did in the SC recommendation because we felt suspension has a limited meaning as a disciplinary action at New College. Since Salisbury had already elected the four-year option, and had to be offcampusforthree terms anyway, there was no reason he couldn't make the terms of his suspension concurrent with his off-campus terms. "We made our recommendation so that he could not do this. The second option was a compromise. Some members felt psychological counseling would be an indication Salisbury was willing to revise his attitudetowardlife atNew College, and should therefore be given a chance to graduate a year earlier. Salisbury had been fotmd guilty of three violationsofthe intervisitation rule and contempt of court before this year. He also pleaded guilty to a littering charge this term. Salisbury's acquittal on another intervisit

Page 2 Editorial O u t of Bounds Draft Director General Lewis Hershey over-stepped his botmds last week when he decreed local draft boards should reclassify 1-A any college student who "physically" interferes with military recruitment of induction or who burns, tears up, turns in, or refuses to carry his draft card. Although Gen. Hershey was careful to exclude students who demonstrate but do not actually interfere with the operations of the Selective Service from his recommendation, he has nevertheless threatened the activists with discriminatory and illegal treatment. So long as the law of the land says undergraduates in approved institutions automatically receive deferment up to four years, then all undergraduates so qualified must be lowed the exemption. Hershey has usurped the law-makmg powers of Congress by deciding some activists ought to be pWlished by being drafted. Often student demonstrators will break a civil law or local police order and thus ought to be arrested and appropriately charged. But what Gen. Hershey would do is clearly extralegal, and we're certain most courts would agree with m. LeHers The Catalyst Letter Disgusted To the Editor: I'm disgusted. The SEC recommendation in the Salisbury case was complicated and disJointed. it was not wrought by "petty hatreds" nor by "narrow minded moralists trying to bring Luke to their level. It was the only compromise that could be found after three hours of intense discussion which could get the six assentive votesnecessarytoadditto the SC's recommendation to the College Council. Considering the incompatibility of many of the factors we had to work with it was a relatively sane construction. m still disgusted. Irrespective of Salisbury's real social and academic flDlctions or dysfunctions, the charges and system upon which he was sentenced are absurd. Four of the six convictions involved were violations or related to violations of the intervisitation rule, New College's own "crime without a With System victim" law. It is absurd for the SEC to consider these convictions forviolations of a rule which none of us believe in and which all of us break, simply because Salisbury was flagrant (read either stupider or more honest) than we. We can only consistently consider the breaking of a salt shaker (willfully, I gather) and the final "breaking and entering" violation. This last I admit may have caused the victims mental anguish, but, sincerely not intending to insinuate any Judgments of the victims involved, may I remind at least the upper class that this sort of thing happened repeatedly our first year and seemed to be delt with effectively "out of court. As for Salisbury's alleged other anti-social behavior, it speaks ill of our system if the offenses it punishes are not those it seeks to prevent. Considering the above I find myself both sharing Luke's outrage at the SEC sentence recommenda-November 17, 1967 All Sarasota Resi d ents Not Alike tion's severity compared to the small net anti-social value of his offenses, and viewing the recommendation as sane under the circumstances. Something is wrong. Most obviously we have been convinced of the necessity of carrying rules in the Student Code to which the students do not adhere but which must be promulgated somewhere for parents, prospectives, townspeople, laws, our own eventual good, ad nauseum. And the students must keep tl'lem to preserve the relative freedom they have under the "buffer system." I know theargumentsfor it. I have made them. The buffer system allows us to adJUSt to the realities of existing in our American society. Does it really? Does it allow us to "adJust" to the cumulative addition which ends in expulsion of convictions for offenses we all commit and believe ourselves JUS tified to commit? Does it allow us to "adjust" to a system which rewards covert performance of behavior we believe moral and condemnation of its open and honest performance? c1rap. Craptothose people who say et's wait bring it up. Crap to myself wno in the welter of Senior Thesis, pet, foot, and food problems will most likely forget the way it really is here. Craptotheparents who don't trust their own children enough, crap to the prospectives who can't be expected to face and evaluate an open enviornment fairly, crap tothe townspeople who can't keep their noses in their own dirt, crap to the adillinistration and faculty who insinuate "psychological dif ficulties," conJure "Samoan villages, yet who ignore the claim of one closest to our "problem children" that intervisitation has not contributed materially to their problems and ignore the inescapable fact that students don't want, and, short of strong coercion, will not abide by such a rule; and who in their wisdom finally settle, like the students, for the buffer of token intervisitation regulation. To the Editor: If it is not contrary to your policy to use a letter from an outsider, I would like to have you print this. I was bemused, and perhaps depressed, to read in the letter from Mr. Boehmer that "Mr. Joy and Mr. Paschal are fairly accurate representatives of the Sarasota viewpoint. If there is to be any continuing dialogue between town and gown it should be apparent that just as much care should be taken by the student body to avoid hasty and inaccurate evaluations as should be taken by the residents in categorizing the college. Too many of these early analyses seem like those blind chaps patting the ele '(lb-t. Guy Paschal in his radio program, through his audience represents on not very consequential, thougJ growing facet ofthe national viewpoint. And both in Sarasota anc the nation, it is a minority phenomenon, created by new and curious social changes. In the past twenty years, alonf with geometric population growth, we have seen an increasing separ ation of the population into ag groupings. Just a teenager is : word of very recent origin, so ar the words oldster, senior citizen retiree. Until the last twenty years we have never had a consequential geographic isolation of the elderly. The family 1.m it in Arne ric a c onsisted traditionally of three generations, and still does in most areas of the nation. But we have recently seen the establishment of commtmities restricted to the elderly in Florida, Arizona, Texas, and California to the extent that the effect on the political posture in these states is becoming apparent, even measurable. Demonstrably, in any social order, one of the afflictions of age is fear. The fear has a flavor of paranoia. There is a growing conviction that something alien and venomous is prowling in the confusing darkness.

But when you establish entire commi.Dlitiesofthe elderly, insulated from the other generations, the formless fears must sooner or later find specific objects which can to some extent be rationalized. Listening to Guy Paschal's radio program over the pa>t few years, and listening from this point of view, you can see how it provides a rationalized series of fear-objects and thus meets a social a1d psych ological need. The comm\Dlist Naval Research To the Editor: A while ago we were admonished not to misrepresent our pa:ifist sen timents as the official opinion of the college. Now we read in The Catalyst that Dr. French will receive about $9,000 from the Office ofN aval Research to help him do some research on motivation. During a war of obviously questionable morality, this is giving more than tacit support to one side. This fact is obscured a bit by the fact that Dr. French is receiving, not bequeathing the cash, but an exchange is still going on. Nor is it impossible that Dr. French is wrong in assuming that the Navy is doing less harm than good in this particular instance, in the same way that academicians at first thought they were serving social science in Project Camelot before they realized their role in bolstering anti-Commtmist regimes in Latin America. At Florida Presbyterian College explosives research is carried out for the military and the imperative for the college to disengage itself from this is more clear. We are faced with essentially the same concern here. This concern must be more fully considered than in this letter. !hope as many students as possible will attend a relevant discussion with Dr. French and maybe Nik (Allen) Levin and others Monday at 5:30 in the Teaching A uditori urn. Sincerely, Jon Shaughnessy conspiracy, crime in the streets, black power, the school board, subversion, pornography, hippies, the Supreme Court, and, naturally, New College. There is a special rhythm to the cyclical erection of the fear-objects, rather like watching the monstrous inflated beasts in Macy's Easter parade, over and over. The evidencethatthese are but subjectively satisfying symbols on which to focus fear is fol.Uld not only in the two or three week attention span, and in the inevitable re-play of one of the stand :rd. fears of a few months past, but in the insistence of the audience on refusing to go to those soi.Dld and reliable sources which will all< those fears. The focusing of fonnless fears on specific fell' objects is too delicious a release to spoil with the kind of factual research which would let theheliurn out of Macy's animals. So here we have a hwnan and l.Dlderstandable condition, and we have the outlet which satisfies them, and there would be no need to take it with any seriousness except for one saddening factor. Fear in the isolated old can be used and manipulated and turned to personal advantage by a Kirk, a Reagan, a Goldwater, as now they fonn a voting block of increasing dimension and power. We can see in Sarasota Cotmty how readily the old sciously lend themselves to use by the opporttmistic. For example, with its commercial strip zoning, Sarasota Cotmty has far more land zoned commercial tha1 will be put to use for a long, long time. Men who own quantities of this idle commercial land are very much interested in seeing that their ad valorem taxes are minimized. Asthe retired live on afixed income, it is very easy to add some new animals to the parade. School Bond becomes a fearsome beast. Coi.Dlty Hospital becomes monstrous. They are led to believe that there is something sneaky, tricky and reprehensible in the zero to ten school millage table, which is required by state law. The apparatus for establishing and promoting these fears can be some so-called taxpayer's association fol.Ulded by the owners of large pieces of commercial land, and the propaganda system can be newspaper ads and "public forum" broadcasts. Quartet Concert The New College String Quartet will perform Monday at 8:00P.M. in the Music Room of College Hall. The program forthe New College community will be a repetition of the concert to be presented tonight to the Associates of New College and their guests. The works to be performed are "Quartet Satz" by Schubert, tok's "Quartet #l", and "'American' Quartet" by Dvorak, We can then have the grotesque spectacle of over six hl.Uldred citizens of Sarasota most of them elderly, voting to give the Board of Public Instruction absol-utely no money at ali--in other words, voting to eliminate tne whole system of public education. As these retired people become a larger percentage of col.Ulty population, and a> the selfishly am bitious and cynically greedy find it every more easy to manipulate them, by focusing fear, we shall by turning our bays into sewers at a greater pace, importing the stench and suffocation of the phosphate industry, going ever more rapidly downhill with substandard public health, roads, schools, recreation and beautification. It is of no ea anc at a aliz that the same thing is happening in scores of counties in the retirement states where there is an isolation ofthe elderly, and where fear can be focused a1d can grow through a kind of emotional resonance. So please do not speak with such assUI3llce of the ''Sa-asota attit\lde." There are far more people here aware of that minority, which in your confrontation was by Mr. Paschal, minority, as representative of a growing national problem rather than as representative of this comm1mity. I suggest that it would be an appropriate project for a student, or group of students to, by careful interview and questionaire tech niques, make some valid analysis of what the "Sarasota attitude" actually is, r:t:her than dumping us all in the Paschal pot--a brew Ifind more dreary than disturbing.

November 17, 1967 In Effective BY STEPHEN OLSON The film and narrative presentation, "A Day in Vietnan," was very effective in supporting the government and military view toward the war. The Sarasota paper of November 15th stated that the program had received standing ovations from its audiences before coming to New College. Those townspeople who attended Wednesdaynight in the teaching auditorium seemed very impressed. They applatded vigorouS.y--appar entlyhavinglostasa group any reservations they might have had about the war. Iwasshocked by this tmiform reaction by the tmcritical audience and must again stress how effective it was. This presentation was the most polished piece of propaganda, the most sophisticated application of indoctrination technique that I have ever experienced. It used what is known as the montage technique of f 1 ash in g from scene to scene, setto set, sotmdtrack to live narration, narrator to narrator, to put the audience off balance. By involving the audience in such an intense experience, their critical faculties are paralyzed and they are open to indoctrination. The hidden message of the presentation was firstly: the end justifies the means. The chief narrator, Captain Wyrick, explained at the beginning that the 'why' of our involvement in Vietnan was not in question. The sole purpose The Catalyst Vietnam' Film Is War Propaganda of the presentation was to show the 'what' and 'how' in the daily lives of our servicemen there. The remarks of the carr aJd narrators, however, continually revolved around our commitment to help these people (the Vietnamese) in their struggle for freedom. Our duty as loyal citizens to support the commitment of our government and Defense Department was taken for granted. If we, the audience, didnot support the end of the war, we were obviously tm -American and commtmist sympathizers. I am sure that on reflection one must realize that it is precisely because the end of this war is so questionable that there is such a ground swell of public opinion ag:i.nst it. That the Naval Air Tr:i.ning Command circulates such obvious affirms my suspicion: the Defense: Department is hurt by the lack of popular support for the war and feelsthat indoctrinating the population is preferable to a change of policy. The second covert message of the presentation was that 'war is hell.' We citizens who are safe here at home are safe because of the suffering of our soldiers in Vietnam. The purpose of this was to shame any opposition into silence, and it wa; completely successful. There was no vocal opposition from the audience. The townspeople clapped and left and the students silently slipped away into the night, wonderinghow all their objections and principles had been hamstrtmg --and muttering about propaganda. The third message of the film and narrative was that our war is somehow a humane one. We are justified in fighting by the more humane, decent methods we use Olson (anti-personnel and incendiary bombs dropped on civilian concentrations, torture of suspected VC for information, forcible detention of civilians in con::entration camps, atrocities, gas, etc. ) in comparison with the V C who are indecent. Our government assures us that our fighting forces always behave according to the edicts of the Geneva Convention (to which the US is not a signatory) and we are expected to believe it. I don't. The evidence of the European press, our own mass media, and the eyewitness reports of people who have returnedfrom Vietnam al contradict this. Plan Recommends When our Defense Department issued st;tements that tear gas was not used against the Pentagon peace demonstrators this October, I be leved it--Wltil my roommate came back and told me of his asthmatic attack as a result of the tear gas used by the National Guardsmen. If the Defense Department cannot Airport Should Stay b An airport planning firm has recommended the Sarasota-Bradenton airport not be moved from its present location just north of the college. The firm, Bristol-StaffordThorrp son, Associated Airport Planners and Engineers, told the Airport Authority yesterday the cost of moving the airport would be twice as great as expanding it in its present location. Three phases of expansion, costing a total of $6, 520, 000, were recommended by the firm. The stages include expansion of runways, an expanded passenger and cargo terminal area and the addition of an instrument landing system. The recommendation to keep the airport in its present location drew DemeCiass: NC First Students of a history class are claiming a New College "first"perfect class attendance and lesson preparation. According to third-year student Steve Orlofsky, students of Laszlo Deme's "German History: 16171814" have never missed a class and always did the class assignments.

Smith indicated the motel will have convention facilities and include a service station complex. home, h o w can it be trusted thousands of miles from here? Remember that war is a vindication of all the money and effort spent for Defense preparations. Our military establishment is an integral and necessary part of our economic system now. The threat of war is a demonstr;tion of the need for a standing army and a frightening defense budget. War insures that the power structure that goes with it, namely the Defense Department, will grow and entrench itself further in our society. This propaganda attempt and others hke it are symptomatic of the dangers we as Americans whether we win the war or not. I sympathize with those in the audience who left with a feeling that war is hell. I pity any who think it noble. PURE ORANGE JUICE TRAV L, I Complete Travel Arrangements Special Studen t Tours ...

The Catal st Novembe r 17 1 9 6 7 The Washington Rally LilE-al Press Rationalizes Left ward Drift By DAVID PINI (third of a series) Television coverage of an event like the march in Washington varies little from city to city, but if adequate nationwide press co..erage is to be expected tens of thousands of people should have to tramp about through every town in the country The Washington Post and Star devoted several pages each to the weekend's events, yet most other papers or maga>ines presented one with partisan cditoriali1ing and distilled hearsay. Perhaps it is most accurate that these symbolic "happenings" are interpreted symbolically rather than reported objectively, yet it is nevertheless interesting to note the varieties and uses of supposedly common perceptions. The liberals, led by James Reston, needed some sort of violence to the left to legitimize their preo c cup at ion with "negotiations" and "deescalation." So as they move into positions formerly held by the "extremists" ther attribute to them tactics no one yet feels are needed. It is no longer possible to label "withdrawal" an extremist alternative, as most of the public rightly perceives it as the only rational one (i.e. "Get in or get out. ") So the method of dissent must be criticized and. U' neccessary, first created. only authentic incident of violence on the part of the demonstrators was when two thousand of them sur rounded twentr-four Nazis and severely beat them. This is not the proper image md thus was not reported outside Washington. It was too "American." Itseems to me that the image of hundrcdsof un;rmed ) Oung people willing to fight ;rmed troops for their ideals would sway many uncommitted citizens to at least a greater respeot for their position, yet for most publications the imperatives of their own r:tionaliza -tion were evidently greater than the possible reader The difficulties of maintaining oneself in the fan t as)' 1 and of a "moderate" Vietnam policy position arc well illustrated by the remarkable cditoria in a recent issue of Life. Having recently sup portcd"i'bbmbing pause, the)' have resorted to delicate logical arab c s que s of nebulous terms and undefined catch-phrases to distinguish the varieties of discontent. One hopes that when Life and Look c m c r g c from theirprescnt editorial confusions i, will be with as much forthrightness as Governor Romney has shown in dealing with his. Even a reporter can be brainwashed, and I recall that the first argument I had over Vietnam was withsomeonewhohad left Life ratherthan accede to their distOrtions on that issue. It was the liberal press which made the distinction between the peace f u 1" rally at the Lincoln Memorial and the "violent" con front;tion at the Pentagon.
