Mrs. Totero is reference librarian and a member of the New College faculty. Mr. Totero is a teacher of biology in the Sarasota public schools. They have another dmghter, Lolly, 2, Students will go to the polls to elect representatives of several different governmental bodies Wednesday. Election of a Student Executive Committeechairmanhas been necessitated by the resignation of third-year student Ted Shoemaket atlastnight's SEC meeting. Three positions on the Student Court must be filled due to the resign:tion of third-year student Dale Hickam and leaves of absence taken this term by second-year members Ellen Tisdae 31dJonLundell. Elections of SEC representatives and members of Dr. ArthurM. Miller's faculty committee on Graduation, Orientation, and Advising a-e part of usual procedU'e. Nominating petitions are currently being accepted for SEC chairman, SC members, and SEC rep representatives, while only a declaration of candidacy is needed for Miller's committee Decided only at last night's SEC meeting, the date of elections was a source of some confusion at the Student observers felt thatthcre was apparent apathy regarding elections, and indications are that few students will be willing to run for offices. Three SEC members arc to be elected from ecl class. One thirdyear student and one underclassman are to be members of the committee on Graduation, Orientation, and Advising. Other positions are open to the student body at la-ge. SEC nominating petitions must bL signed by 15 % of the candid:te1s Twenty May Host S i ng les be Available There is a "good chance" that 20 "host singles" will be given to students this term. The Student Executive Committee 1 e arne d at its meeting last night th:tunless objection is heard from Comptroller Cha-les C. Harra by Monday, Dean of Students Jack Rains will i m mediate 1 y make available single rooms on the "host single" policy. Rains informed the SEC that to meetHarra1s previous objection to increased cost of maintaining single rooms, no m aid service will be given to "host singles. 11 The SEC approved Assistant Dean of Students Arthur M. Miller's plan for dealing with the singles. Illegal singles now existing would "be theoretically squailied on paper, 11 applications takenfor singles, new roommates decided upon, and, sing 1 e rooms then assigned on a pnority basis. One day would be aesignated as a gene r a 1 moving day, all changes occurring on that one day. Balcony rooms willnot be available as sing 1 e s, although rooms with patios will. If a case arises where it is extremely unfeasible for an occupant to move, exceptions will be made to this policy. Guests will be assigned to "host sing 1 e s" of underclassmen first. Four rooms will be maintained as entirely unoccupied guest rooms. Students are to watch the glass bulletin board for further details. At the SEC meeting it was also reported that the new draft of the Bill ofRights for Students has been given to the College Council. If no comments are received in three days, the bill will then go to the faculty Committee on Committees, a vote :t a faculty meeting, the adminsitration, and finally back to the SEC. Discussion was also held on the ineffectiveness of the Student Academic Committee. C ailed "a elm, not a committee," at the meeting, agreement wa; reached that there is little student interest in the committee, and little work done by members of the committee. Miller clarified at the meeting the current handling of mail of students on leave of ;bsencc. Un less a forwarding card is filled out at the reception desk, mail is forwarded to General Delivery of S arasota, where it is held. Six comm1.mity seminars arc to be he 1 d this term, with student seminar leaders receiving $75-100 for the sessions. Those interested should contact Tom Thompson by Monday noon. class. Nominations for SEC chairman and SC members must bear the signatures of 5% of the entire student body. Filing date for the petitions is midnight Tuesday. Petitions are to be turned in to Duane Sweeney. To date no nominating petitions have been filed, although thirdyear representative Larry Alexander has indicated he will run for cbairrnan. Plans Progress For Dorm Rental Plans a-e apparently progressing on the rental of Hamilton Center for the purpose of holding executive conferences and the construction of 31 "instant c:ntpus" complex on the West Campus. President John Elmendorf said negotiations with an agency interested in renting the campus have "reached a new st;ge. 11 Elmendorf, who decided against holding a town meeting this week to discuss the plans (see letter, page 2), said little could be disclosed to students at this point because of the possibility of prejudicing negotiations. Elmendorf also said he would have little to add to reports published in The Catalyst March 14, which he termed accurate. The Catalyst reported at that time the complex, which would inc 1 u d c dormitories, classrooms and dining facilities, would be designed by Lester Pancoast, and could be constructed at a cost of approximately $1. 5 million. Elmendorf said this week the original plans for the development of the West Cam pus provided for the retention of Hamilton Center as a dormitory are a, and therefore no real change in the scope of the West Campus development would be necessitated by the "instant campus." Dance Group Dance Theatre Discovery, ag=up ofstudents, facultywives, and others, will perform Saturday at 11 am at the Asolo Theatre in conj1.mction with the Ringling Museum Art Carnival. The group stresses experiments in dance, 31d m:kes use of 1.musual music and props. Admission will be$. 50. Seniors Receive Top Fellowships Four New College seniors this week were notified they had received several top gradu:te fellowships, inc 1 ud in g the Fulbright award. Philosophy major John Peters received a Fulbright for study at Wolfson College, Oxford. Peters will study philosophy at Wolfson, which is Oxford's newest college, and attempt to enter the Bachelor of Philosophy program there. The fellowship pays for transportation, expenses 31d tuition. A National Science Fo1.mdation Fellowship in mathematics was awarded to Ha-ry Felder. Felder will receive $200 a month for expenses, plus payment of tuition. Felder must receive permission to study 31yplace other than Princeton, since that was his first choice. He said he will probably study there or at some other institution in the northeast. History major Tom McDaid received a Lehman Fellowship from the State of New York. The ie! lowship is for the study of Social Science or Intem:tional Affairs at a university within the state. The fellowship provides $4000 the first year and $5000 the next three years. The student must pay his tuition from these sums.

2 Editorial ASKING AGAIN At the risk of being repetitious, we would like to repeat a suggestion we do not feel has been acted upon: that the administration make a full disclosure of the financial situation that has led it to take the drastic steps of dismissing the language faculty and drafting a plan to move students out of Hamilton Center We appreciate the fact that negotiations are at a prelimmary that n_o definite plans have been drawn up. We President Elmendorf's that The Cat-alyst did such a thorough job of explaining the situation that _there was nothing for him to add at this time. But the deta1ls of the bll:ilding itself are not what we are seeking. What we would like to know is precisely why such a plan is being considered at all. The Ma Indeed, negotiations with the agency interested in renting Hamilton Center might be jeopardized if it were disclosed that such an arrangement were necessary to the survival of the college. Yet we feel it is not necessarily true that this information would fall into the hands of the agency if such a disclosure were made to students. And we feel the move is of sufficient that students should be informed about the situation at all stages. If negotiations are at such an advanced stage that such disclosures might be crucial, students should surely have some idea of what is on. ELC.OME \0 NEW There is, we might add, a possibility that may be more durectly concerned with this matter than anyone has suspected. The New College that exists after all the economy moves are made may very well not be a New Col many students wish to attend. And students must have to make alternative plans for next year. Students cer not want to have their own bargaining position Jeopardized by lack of time. CATALYST INTERVIEW Letters NO MEETING To the Editor: There have been various indications that both students and faculty feel a general meeting of the college commlll1ity should be held to discuss possible changes in the future plans of the College. After serious consider;tion of this possibility, I have concluded that tentative plans have not yet matured New Dean Views Job As Service to Students The C ,_; Member Associated Collegiate Press Volume N, Number 25 March 28, 1968 Publli':led weekly 36 limes per year by students at New College.
