Pre Po ration The snack bar became a stonn shelter for chairs, motorcycles and bicycles Monday when word came the Sarasota area was threatened by Abby, the first hurricane of the year. Students read a list of hurricane instructions, filled their bathtubs for fresh water, and checked their candle supplies. ButAbbydidn'treallymakeit. Going ashore at Plmta Gorda, Abby brought more than five inches of rain by 6 pm Tuesday. But there were no damaging .,..inds, and, to the disappointment of some, little excitement. June 6, 1968 1Thirty.Point-Four Plan Now Official Polcy The "30.4 proposal" is now official college policy, Vice President Paul D ov is said today. Under this plan, students who wish to live off campus next year will have their costs reduced by 30. 4%. The 30.4 figure is the percentage of total cost which covers room and board fees. To detennine the amount of money students who live off campus will have to pay the college, students should subtract their current scholarship award from the total of $3750 which covers total annual cost. Thirty and fourtenthspercent of the resulting figure will be subtracted, with the remainder due the college. As an example, a student who had a $1750 scholarship and decides to live off campus would have had to pay the college $2000 annu:lly. However, this cost, reduced by 30. 4%, totals $1392. So the student will have saved $608 for the purposes of living off campus. Thisplan will make it more difficult for those students who have large scholarships to live off campus wiess they can supplement the money they have available with addedwork or other income. Students who already been given permission to live off campus by the Office of Student Policy, and find that this reduction is not sufficient to enable them to live off campus should notify that office by noon Friday so that students with later priorities can be offered the opportunitr to live off campus. Davis said tha, although this policy is "not perfect, it "does the most justice to both students' and college interests" of ;ny plan considered. When questioned about the negative effect this policy could have on the cooperative housing plan, Davis said th:t "this fonnula itselfprobablywon'tkill the co-op." He also said, "I think the college Davis is sufficiently committed to the co-op idea that means will be f.oWld to make it work financially." Davis said that although this plan rna} be inequitable, it still is not depriving any student o f the fundamental right to attend c ollege. Faculty Discusses Student Rights Final Plans Released For Commencement Arthur M. Miller, chairman of the faculty Committee on Orientation, Advising, and Graduation, has announced the plans for commencement activities of New College' s seco11d charter class on Sa turday, June 15. Examiner Dr. John French, and Dalas Dort, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, will make up the platf orm party, and will we a: academic robes. The faculty discussed deletions and additions to the proposed Stu dent Bill of R ghts at their meeting yesterday. The faculty will meet again Wednesday morning, June 12, to confer on candidates for graduation and will continue their meeting until definite action has been taken on the Student Bill of Rights. lfthefaculty passes the proposal, it willgo to the ColleF;e Council, then 1t will be submitted to the Board of Trustees for implement:tion. But the proposal could be accepted as a work document before the trustee decision, Ombudsman AP thur M. Miller said. The paragraph in the proposal which defined the rights of the students to express their views on intellectual, religious, social, political, economic, or cultural issues was augmented by a faculty statement which st;ted that "A student acting as a citizen has a responsibility to ew College to make every effort to indicate that he is not an institutional spokesman. Carrving a bamer or placard identifying a student or group as being from New College is not a violation of the preceding stipu lation." The section in the proposal which dealt with the details of warrants was deleted until a c onferral with the college lawyers on the legal matters involved could be held. Another addition stated that students who feel that their rights have been violated by the actions of any person, group, body, or ofCore Programs To Undergo Change Dr. Jack D. Rains, Chainnan of the Division of Social Sciences, said today that he expected a "big change" in the organization of next year's core social sciences program. The fact that the course will be given second and third tenns means that there still is time for more detailed planning, Rains said. The core Nat ural Sciences pro gram, said Dr. Peter Buri, division chairman, will also be given second a1d third terms next year. It will be primarily a lecture program, with optional consultation sessions avalable. The program will cover the general subject matter of this year's course, with one tenn c.f physical science ;nd one of biologica science. More math might be included also, Buri said. The basic Humanities program for next year will be extended to three terms, the length it had been until thil ye ar Dr. Arthur R. Borden, Chairman of the Division of Humanities, stated that the course will cover approximately the same material that it has treated since its inception. NC Students Work 1000 Hours For SUN Contributions that New College students are making in the local commWlity have been given some tangible expression by Jerome Dupree, executive director of Sara sota United Need (SUN). Dupree recently decided to tabulate the hours that New College students had volWlteered to work either tutoring in the Newtown Center, working in the SUN office orworking in the Day Care Center sponsored by SUN. Figuring that the equiv:ient wage for a paid worker would be $2. 25 an hour, Dupree calculated that New '-ollege students had made a total contribution of $2, 500, or more than 1, 000 hours of v o 1 unteer help. More than SO students have been involved to some degree in assisting the SUN operation. Second-year students Pea:l Lefkovits and Dennis Greene are planning to stay in Sarasota over the summer in order to continue their work with SUN. Miss Lefkovits will be a paid member of the staff, but Greene has secured other work to support himself and will continue his volunteer work. Marie Rapport, of Anna Maria, also will do volunteer work during the summer. fice of the College community may request :md receive a hearing before the College Council. Students also hav e the right to request and receive, from the relevant authority, a written justification of any rule or reJO?:ulation. If a written justificatio n is n o t received or is r e c e i v e d and n o t deemed satisfactory by the student in question, that student may request a review of the regulation by the College Council. A two-thirds vote ofthe Coi.Ulcil Cal abolish the rule, but only the authority which established the regulation can modify or replace it. In other action, the faculty passed a proposal by College Exaniner Dr. John French concerning the fulfilling of academic obligations while not in residence. Professor of History George Mayer willdeliverthe address to the grad uating class. Senior Dale Hickam is to give the invocation, while original poetry readings are to be done by Helen Hickey, 168. Candidates for degrees will be presented alphabetically within each division by the chainnen of the respective divisions. At present there are 38 candidates, with faculty approval of these students to be decided :t next Wednesday's faculty meeting. Again this year President John Elmendorf will address remarks to the graduates. Elmendorf, the division c;:hairmen, College SEC PET ABROGATES GOVERN lNG The Student Executive Committee last night handed over entire responsibility for any pet rules to the Office of Student Policy. With a unanimous vote it was passed that beginning next Sep tember all pet policies would be controlled by Director of Student Policy Arthur M. Miller. Miller saidhis"first impulse" towards pet rules would be: 1) no dogs next fall; 2) only cats currently registered with the Office of Student Policy would be allowed back on campus next tenn. The motion also stipulated that the money now in the student fumigation fund be given to Controller Charles C. Harra for th:t purpose, with any remaining money to be put in the Student Activities Fund. Welcome This issue of The Catalyst is being sent to members of the class of 1971 who will enter New College next 'september. We hope this issue will serve as an btroduction to The Catalyst for next year's firstyear students. Those members of the new class who are interested i"l working on the paper should contact Paul Adomites when they arrive. Entering freshmen who have questions about The Catalyst can write Adomites at 601 Cherry Drive, Trafford, Pa. 15085 this summer. The SEC also appropriated $997 of the $2223 currently in the SAF. $597.34 wa; given to the Social Committee to cover the costs of the spring formal; $400 w"as appropriated the Day Care Center to c on t in u e operations through the summer. It was recommended to the Office of Student Policy that the barefoot rule for Hamilton Center be abolish e d. Also recommended was a proposal th:t room 309, now a faculty residence, be converted to a recreation-TV room next year. Much of the meeting was devo tedto explanation of the events of the facult} meeting, especially in regard to the amendments to the proposed Bill of Rights for Students. The SEC also agreed with a proposed college policy on drugs. The paper, to be presented to President John Elmendorf for approval, would then be placed in the new student handbook. The possibility of student meal cards for those living off campus but wishing to ea at school was discussed. No action was taken. The eff.ect of the "30. 4" scholarship reduction on <-op living was also a topic of some concern at the meeting. Associate Professor o f Philosophy Dr. W, C. Humphreys attended the SEC meeting for the first time as its new faculty liaison member. Prior to the conferral of degrees, sev e ral other activities will take place. Aseniorsupperwill be held at the Elmendorfs' Sunday, June 9. Open h ouse, also at the Elmendorf home, will be Friday, June 14, from 2-4 pm. A reception will follo w in South Hall at 6:30 pm. Transportation to :ll events will be provided by the Office of Student Pq!icy. Conferral of degrees will begin at 9:30 am S;turday. A New College Festiva Brass Choir will perform three pieces :t graduation: Quintet for Brass Instruments, Third Movement, by Earl; Sym phonyforBrass Choir, Victor Ewald; and Legend and Canon, by Houston Bright. Comprehensives First-year student Carola Heitmann faces the camera with her many books before facing com prehensives this coming week. M...ny of the class of '70 must take the Natural Science Comprehensive M onday. All first-year students are taking the Social Science Comp Saturday. ..


2 Editorials KENNEDY SHOOTING The tragic shooting of Senator Robert F. Kennedy yesterday morning shocked and stunned us, as it did most of the world. This assassination, following so shortly upon April muraer of Dr. Martin Luther King, and owy five years ater the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, makes us wonder about the place of violence in our society today. Is lawlessness really condoned throughout the nation? Or is the problem rather that a large number of American people have found themselves incapable of dealing with the emotion-laden issues of today with any amount of rationality, and so resort to violence? Violence can be an easy way if all other ways are blocked. But what has given people the idea that the other ways are blocked? Is it the general dissatisfaction with the administration of the nation? We don't know. But President Johnson's call to law and order must be heeded by all Americans. Violence can breed more violence. Feelings that violence can be useful must be wiped out. A new faith in the American system is necessary. CONGRATULATIONS To the second charter class of New College, we offer out he artiest congratulations. With the departure of this class, ew College will find its way into more graduate schools across the country, and we aresurethatthe class of '68 will do a great deal to increase the positive repuation of ew College. Those of us who are left behind, to return next year, are awaiting the possibilities for improvement that the fall term will bring. But those who will graduate next Saturday have done theb: job for the school while they were here. Again, to them, congratulations and good luck in their post-college years. The Trial To the Editor: RE Graduation. ... I gave orders form> horse to be brought round from the stable. The servant did not understand me. I myself went to the stable, saddled my horse and mounted. In the distanceiheardabuglecall, I asked him what this meant. He knew nothing and heard nothing. At the g:te he st pped me, asking: "Where ore you riding to, master?" "I don't know," I said, "only awar from here, away from here. Always away from here, only by doing so C31 I reach mr destination." "And so you know your destination?" he asked. "Yes, 11 I answered, "didn't I SO so? AwayFrom-Here, that is m1 destination. "You have no provisions with you!' he said. "I need none," I said, "the JOumer is so long that I must die of hunger if I don't get anything on the way. No provi sions can save me.

Page 3 The Catalyst June 6 1968 1 clef notes Waring Evaluates College Editor'snotc: Walter Warmg was Scholar in Residence at New College for the first two tcnns of the 1967-68 acr commercial entity, few 'azz-oriented big bands have pursued a; lucrative a cuurse as the mentioned above; contem pvrary banclleadcrs are sati.sfied. to dispense witl1 most of the g1mm1ckry and "sweet" music that was de rigeur thirty years ago. is only logical; given the present chma tc, these bands could not achieve great popularity any way; they are wise to make as strong as they can for the 1azz-oriented a.Jdience they have. Now, however, the twenty-year exile ci jazz from popular! avor may be at a partial end. One of the most significant signs of this ret .trn to favor is the increased commercialism of trumpeter Don Ellis' band. .Ellis, who originally made his reputation a; an "avant-gard e" nnl5ician, is in fact nothing of the sort; rather, he is a fairly conventional modern trumpeter with an apparently irresistible impulse to be fashionable. His affection for the new led him first into groups headed by then-advanced mmposers Charlie Mingus :nd Russell. Although not particularly outstanding, his work in this contextfar surpassed his next productions; a series of "happenings" in whkh music ran a poo r third behind the atre and galloping pretension. Ellis then moved to the west coast, where he heard the call of Indian music and formed the Hindustani Jazz Sextet, a group thS/4, 11/8, and 19/4. Disappointed with the possibilities ofthese.>tet, Ellis dissolved it and formed a big band. To overcome the difficulties pre:ented by the new time signatUl'es, he used three bassists and three drummers, in addito a conventional five trumpetsthree trombones-five woodwindspiano set-1.1p .. Although the band' s first recordings suggested that the group was not quite at home in the new met ers, there was no doubt that Ellis had achieved something considerable. His new recording, Electric Bath (Columl:ia CIS9585-CL 2785 ) ShoWsth:thehasnot chosen to work to improve the band's weaknesses; instey ing echo along behind it. There is also a sitar (played by one of the bassists) which is neither dynam ically nor idiomaticaLly cons1sten t with eight brasses. Final!;, on EllispLrshistrumpet into a loop echo ch anber, wh1 ch enables him to play exact imitations all by himself; the limitation of the device is that it cannot be used to p 1 a y an )' t h in g e l se Nothing (except the techmcal problems mentioned 3:nve ) is wrong with most these instruments, excep t that the composers who work with the b :nd can't seem to .find an pat1icularl musicallt' do with them. Turkish Bath example, is a gc>ld -mine uf com} Oricnta..lia. The sitar intrc>ducl ic>n is followed b) a son-of-elcphant-bo/ theme state ment by amplified saxes; it might sotmd appropriae 011 the late si1<'W, but it doesn't here. Taylor Instead of dreaming up new difficulties for his band to tackle, Ellis might do well to solve some of the problems which have plagued the band since its inception. Chief am011g these is a complete lack of good soloists. Ellis himself is the group's best soloist, but even he is at best uneven. At fast tempos (as in Indian Lady md parts of New Horizons}, he spews out virtuosic but IIfe"leSs scales and arpeggios, sea soncswith the rhythmic variet, of a well-trained traffic light. At m c d i u m tempos, he affects a "squeezed" tone and a coating of unnecessary blue notes that remind me of the dark side o! Lee Morgan. His best work is done at slow tempos (Alone and portions of New Horizo"iiS),""" where he recalls seiiiie of the wonderfully controlled pas -io isp a ed by Mil avis h is collaborat i o ns with Gil Evans. Trombonist R on Myers and pia nist Mike L n g also contribute fair work, but Lang is hampered by his various trick key b o a r d s, which force him to play every way except pianistically, fortunately, he gets a crack at a real piano on New Horizons. Tenor saxophonist Ron Starr and soprano saxophonist Joe Roccis:no prove that 4/4 cliches sound no better when transposed to 5/4 or 7/4. I realize that learning to improvise in new time signatures is by no means easy, but there is no reason for the Ellis band to have no soloists of repute; Paul example, isn't wor king for anyone at the moment. It's a good thing that these rather haphazard soloists are held together by severa very good compositions. Especially noteworthy are Ellis' l ongNewHo riz ons andBatimorean Hank Levy1 s A lone. Ellis' Indian Lady is good, too, but lacksAlone1s ( Continue d o n p 4 colu m n one. ) The following observations are by no means intended as a mea>ure of the pleasure that I have had in my brief association with your fine college and wonderful students. As a matter of fact, I shall ever be grateful to you for the opportunity to spend six months at New College. They have been among the happiest of my career. I hope that you will accept my thanks and con vey my thanks to your president, the students, Mr. Minter, and all otherswhohavehelpedtomake my visit here a delightful experience. The Library 1. My observations about the library are, no doubt, familiar complaints. In the area of English literature, I find most of the major figures and a good selection of preeminentcri.ticism and literary history. Recentworkonmajor figures is very spotty. Often an import:.ant writer is represented by one book only. This is unnecessarily true of modern writers who c :n be obtained in paper backs. For example, I can find only one book by Malamud, John Barth, Behan, and o thers; two by Golding, Sainger and Bellow three orfour by Joyce Cary. I do believe that the library contains a single work by Walker Percy or Gass. The same observation can be made of criticism,drama, and, especially, poetry. I think that students arc often drawn to scholarship through an interest in contemporary literature (at least I was). Thus, I believe that a good current sel ection i s an absolute ne cessity. 2. Because I spent m ost of my time on campus in the library, I became painfully a w are of the fact that students simply do not use it. Of, perhaps, three-hundred books that I read or used during my six months here, 90 percent had never been checked out. I judge thf core material, I foWld attitudinal responses, rather than information on ba>ic relationships. Most re sponsescame in terms of New Criticism, Freudianism, Nco-Human ism, or solipsisms. I found no student whoventurcd into contemporary aestheticism or even the implications modem philosophy has for literary students. 2. Studentsseem to be unable to focus their concern for tests. They certainly see fe w relationships between course work llld examinations. 3. Students do n o t write enough to write easily. Few find writing a pleasure. Suggestion 1. !think that seminar "prelims" that relate seminars to core material should be required, read, e valuated, and discussed with the students, but not recorded. or That st\tdents should make full written reports on the significance of their seminars. These state mentsmightinclude alist of completed readings. 2. I believe that youneed a tutor in writing for students who have difficulties. 3. A series of divisional seminars attended by the division in which students report (or re ;d portions of) their iSP's might give more point to that project. I can find very littlP. "feed forward" resulting from the ISP's. Faculty and Students 1. Students fail to distinguish be tween opinion and scholarly sis. Very few that I taked with really believed that the professors' opinions are based on any expert or detailed investigation of literature. I do not believe that students feel themselves colle;gues of the fac ulty in academic effort. ( C ontin u e d on p. 4 column 3.) FOR SUMMER LOUNGING THIS BRIGH T JUMPSUI T found in J unio r Underworld $20.00 FLORIDA


Two participants in the ew College Music Festival practice in the dining room. Concerts b y distinguished musicians and class sessions are features of the annuil event, which continues through June 15.

Ron M yers' TurkiSh Bath is spoiled b y the opening mentioned above. Ellis' tape-loop trumpet feature, Open Beauty, suffers from a serious lack of unity. The general aura of Ellis' charts is reminiscent of Stan Kenton--libcra use of dissonance, lots of brass, latin percussion (Steve Bohannon is the only pzz drummer on this record, and he does an excellent job), and a prediliction f.;,r multiples of f. Nevertheless, they are quite liStenable, l:rgely be cause of his skill with orchestral colors. SummeriSP's Must Be Prompt The faculty will follow a "nononsense" policy in regard to summer Independent Study Projects, according to President John Elmen dorf. Elmendorf said all students who must undert :i made good its promise to show how schol arly application can result in enlightened values and relevant decisions. The students, far too of ten, are clever apologists who base their responses on feelings rather than on fact. Now that I have recorded some of my impressions, I must add what you know very well: I have had far too little contact with either your program or your students to support my observations. June 6 1968 Suggestion Several years ago when I became uncertainly aware of weaknesses in our program, I invited students from neighboring schools to our campus for a week. TI1eir job was to attend equivalent classes on our campus and whatever else interested them. After a week, they wrote a group report on all they had observed. They were very frank, and we learned much that we did not suspect. Some such project is often helpful. Thank you again for a vary pleasant winter.
