Pag e 2 Editori o\s A vow The new academic year is well tmder way, and with it have come a host of problems. Many students, faculty, and administration have expressed dismay with the direction New College is taking. We of The Catalyst are likewise dismayed. The increasing problems resulting from bureaucratic stiffness, from the increased student-faculty ratio, from the library1s lack of facilities have caused us great concern. This editorial: then, is in the form of a promise: We of The Catalyst vow to continue, throughout the year, an intensive study of the nature of New College: New College as a place of education, and New as an institution. We hope to keep our comments from becoming of historical interest on editorial pages of back issues. We hope to work with the student government to bring about action; not the violence of Berkeley or Columbia, but a sincere, reasoned change in the direction of New College. We ask for the cooperation of the faculty, staff, and student body in our study. COUNSELING the story in columns three, four, and five of this page md1cates, New College has expanded and improved its counseling system. The people who are acting as counselors are all well trained, and highly respected by those who know them. Mr. Cooper, the co-ordinator of the program, had had a great deal of experience as a counselor. Students know what a great help he can be. Mrs. Morrill is giving more ot her time this year to help rt 1. with problems. who have talked to Dr. Rains or Mrs. Hoppin have come to know the concern with which these individuals can discuss difficulties. The SeEtember 26, 1968 Cooper Heads Counseling Prog rom A new counseling program has been instituted at New College in order to provide students with more efficient and comprehensive counseling facilities. The Reverend Horace N. Cooper has been given the position of counseling coordinator and Mrs. John B. Morrill, wife of the associate professor of Biology, the position of counselor. Working in close affiliation with these two will be Resident Psychologist Dr. Marion C. Hoppin and Dr. Jack Rains, Chairman of the Division of Social Sciences and Professor of Psychology. Mrs. Arthur MeA. Miller, whose husband is Director of Student Policy, will also be arailal:leforcoun seling. Mr. Cooper, who was a special cowselor at the college last year, was educated at the University of Denver and the Nashotah Theological Seminary. He later served as aU. S. Army and U. S. Air Force chaplain, retiring in 1959. Mrs. Morrill was also a counselor at the the college last year. She did her undergraduate work at Grin JEll College and received her master1 s degree in psychology at Florida State University. She has worked in FSU's Counseling and Guidance Office and as a Florida school psy chologist. CoUD!.eling will be available to students five days a week in the counseling office in Hamilton Center. Mr. Cooper will be available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, Mrs. Morrill on Tuesdays and Thl.U"Sda)rs. Should students find the kind of counseling offered here in_adequate, il;tensive cotmSeling with Dr. Hoppm or Dr. Rains will will be arranged. Letters uerrilla.

This is extremely annoying, as it is dan gerous for Jimmy to ride without my protection. If, by chance, a student has "borrowed" our car seat, I would appreciate having it retumed. No questions will be asked; and it can be retumed to the doorway of apaltment 209 on campus. I feel, however, that a student is not responsible. Therefore, if anyone should see a white car seat on the campus, please notify me. Thank you, Mrs. Lorraine Sponheim Secretary Student Policy Office .,._ Member Associ:

Page 3 1\ ..... I T--. _I _I_..-_ d clef...-nOtes By J. R. Taylor Side man Within a few years of the advent of modem jazz in the mid-forties, one or two musicians managed to distinguish themselves as the most significant figure on each of the various instruments. There were several excer:tions to this rule; the clarinet and guitar, for example, produced no one of great artistic merit during this period. The tenor saxophone, by contrast, boasted almost a surplus of fine soloists, none of whom stood out from his contemporaries. This condition may have been due to the reluctance of most tenorists to ador:t an tmreserveclly modem style. Dexter Gordon and Luckv Thompson staked out territory between the revolutionary altoist Charlie Parker and the driving, vibrato-drenched sotmd _of elder statesman Coleman Hawkins; meanwhile, Gene Ammons and Wardell Gray crossed Parker with the dry, beat-baiting style of pre-modemist Lester Young. It was not tmtil Sonny Stitt (a Parker -inspired altoist) switched to tenor that the hom gained its first completely modem exponent. One of the most rewarding things about this group of saxophonists has been their continuing maturation (The exceptio;n here is Gray, who died in 1955. ) Parucularly interesting is James Moody, who made his first recording in 1947 with Dizzy Gillespie's big band. Atthe time, his solos were heated and abrasivsition, and highlights grac\il tenor rtmS agaim1: low, ominous brass. The remaining tracks are done with mythm accompaniment only; and, if anything, they are better than the brass selections. The virtuousic rendition of The Moon was Yellowismatchednote for note by t:lie1lercely overolown flute work on Cherokee (the only non-tenor traCk). AlSO outstanding is ahighly original rendition of Thelonious Monk's mediately g is subtle Never Al'\ain, with its aura of tm derstated gospel. Taylor The album as ;t whole is a Thing Well Made; solid arrangements, pleasant solos by Baxron and Ow ell$ fine mythm work bv bassist Bo'b Cranshaw and drummer Mel Lewis. But the driving force of the album is Moody, and his work here is superb. The expressive variety of histone is tremendous. tompare, for example, his smooth, Getzian upperregisternear the end of Love with the anguished yelp at the-,;e:: ginning of Ruby. ) His timing is allbutpettect; on he pltm ges into a break WI a stream of 16th notes--then stops abruptly and drops onto the beat with the accur acy of a kingfisher. Best of all, Moody is a powerful, highly c v r. melodic creations have strength, but they are rarely predictable. Finally, althcugh Ivk>ody las learned from Parker's controlled frenzy, Rollins' assured curtness, and Coltrane's metorical flourishes, he is distinctly his own man. He is no longer his own leader, however. He rejoined Gillespie several years ago, this time as a part of the great trumpeter's quintet; and rumor qas it that the side man frequently steals the mow from his vamted leader. Having heard f!UtX and the &ass Figures, nothing wo surprise me less.
