Davidson Triumphs in SEC Runoff Ron D2vidson was elected chairman of the Student Executive Committee in general elections held Tuesday and }Vednesday. In a statement made as he took the chair for his first SEC meeting Wednesday night, Davidson said, "I'd like to work with the faculty, with the administration, and with the students to rn ake this term a good one. I want to be able to change some things this term, and I'm sure we will. 11 From the original field of candidates for chairman, consisting of Davidson, Joel Judd, Wendell Wagner, Bryan Reid, and Roger Klurfield, and Judd were top vote-getters in the Tuesday election In the Wednesday runoff election. after the two made nooat:lme speeches in the dining room, Davidson emerged as the vic tor. VOLUME VIn, NUMBER 2 Media Center Faces Chaos b}' Sherri Mcindoe The recent administration change in the library, the ab sence of a president, and various other human errors have led to a waste of human and financial resources within the library-run Media center. Daivd pini, who was completely famihar with the equipment lu auu operauon of Lhe Media center and who was w1lling to teach courses as well as run the center for salary of $4, 000, was refused the JOb, originally committed to him, in preference to Dr. corinne Wilson, who was not trained for that position and who, according to the rules of tenure, is supposed to be receiving the salary she drew as director of the library. A background history of the Media center is easily constructed from memos sent to and from various members of the faculty and administration and from minutes of Humanities meetings. In a Sept. 11, 1972 memo, David Pini wrote, "At the requests of a member of the Media center Staff and the Student Services Office during term II of AIY 1970/71 I submitted a 20 page outline of the services I could perform as director of the various Media Programs offered by the college These services included teaching courses in film, managing the Media center (then under the control of the library), coordinating special programs (Such as the film program cosponsored with the Ringling Museum last year), seeking out sources of funding for equip ment, and seeing to it that tbe various budgets involved in media programs avoided duplication of either rentals or purchases. The proposal was fa vorably received by all those to whom it was sent ... Dr. Elmendorf informed me in early May that funds had been set aside (4, 000) for the salary of the director of the Media cen ter." Through some confusion, the Humanities Division attempted to secure the $4, 000 salary for a language lab assistant. When the two requests for one sum of money reached president Elmendorf, he decided, in a memo of May 31, 1972, that the decision should be made by his successor and not by him. However, within a day, the confusion was cleared and withdrew its request. Thus president Elmendorf, on June 15, 1972, approved the Librarian, corinne Wilson's, R proposal that 1) A salary of $4, 000 be paid to oavid pini to direct the Media center. (continued on page four) The Catalyst in the interest of public service to the students in letting them see who and what they did and did not vote for in this election, polled the candidates beforehand on various boiling, bubbling, and merely simmering issues of interest. Their responses are presented below. (Note: These are not a-ctual quotes, but they are so closely paraphrased as to make t-be point purely academic, ) 1. Catalyst: Why did you decide to run for SEC chairman? W , his stud} is attempting to compile "a comprehensiv e checklist of marine organisms in the sarasota bay area .. right now, nobody knows what's out there, and without tnis basic Information we have nothing to work from." Fu ture analyses of the sarasota b"y ecologv wll hke y n heavily from the Tiffany study as it represents a source of essential "control" information against which future alterations 10 the bay ecostructure may be compared. Needless to say, this i s a large-scale proJect, and Dr. Tiffany says that he could use "a hundred" students with no trouble at all. The second nudy is comparing the ecostructure of the highly dev Gravel canal with the comparative!} undisturbed Heron Lagoon, both on Siesta Key T h e pro,ect consists of water and bottom sampling and rna) possible expand to include a natural tidal creek which the study group feels may represent a better control situatior than the Heron Lagoon area. APOLITICAL ECOTAGE? Although Tiffany say s t.riat the proJ eCt wants to rem a in "apolitical," (but this isn't to say that our information couldn't be picked up and used by somebody else .. ) the Citizen's Advisory com m ittee, which oversees community relations for the proJect and suggests possible avenues for exploration, is enthusiastic over the possibility of 11 ecotage" style public-information tactics. According to Cyn De Na H!:7, representative to the committee, the committee members have expressed concern that New college students wouldn't be action oriented enough to get involved in this sort of activity, and are looking to Manatee Junior college for possible Ecotage manpower. The proJect's overall director, a Or. Rifkin from the columbia Maryland Ecology center, is also enthusiastic about the possibility of the use of guerilla theater tactics. Dr. Rifkin will be coming down from Maryland next week for a series of meeting being scheduled by NC Executive secretary1 Millie Randolph. Rifkin will also be dowo at C throughout the month of November working with the various ESP prO J eCtS. or. R afkin also will be trying to raise outside financial support for the ESP program, a JOb at which he is reputed to have considerable skill.

We will not condemn the inheritors of traditional problems; we only hope to point out the opportun Ity to correct some of those inadequacies. A.t last year's moon part}, a friend took an informal survey to fmd out who broke the bread at that magnificent bacchanal about half people he talked with weren't New college stu dents. Whtle college officials chase off former students who are still on campus, congenial first-class minds invite new !ound hitching buddies to sta} for a few days, JUSt to look the P.lace over. And while class representatives fret over the nghts of dogs and dog owners, more than a few of us wonder wh} somebody felt safet} bolts on our doors were necessar}. We ask that the SEC demand that students who sign in guests more than. nom mal responsibility for those guests, to the pomt of answenng personally charges brought against the nonstudent. such a provision would be relentlessly exacting. Jt could also encourage overly hospitable students to accept the responsibility some of them now seem less than capable of rnanag1ng. D. F. C. Just a few days ago, the pages of the St. Petersburg Times greeted me with a choice bit of information. The State of Florida had recieved a sizeable grant from the U.S, system before their trials. Now this seems really nice The court system of this cotmtry is hopelessly overloaded, to the point that any chance of justice being expedited falls into the range of absurdity. Under the new system all you would need is to be arrested and to submit to some sort of psychological/sociological "Treatment" and they won't even take you to court. Imagine. They would save you all that time, trouble and money. They would save the taxpayer's money. After all there is no need to waste time and money to prove you guilty. Just a bureaucratic office to process you and send you off to your proper treatment. Well, after all, the courts are crowded, and 1984 is only 12 years away. D,G, S. Having been promoted from the position of senior typist, and emergency copyreader, waxer, and headline-maker to the position of reporter, senior typist, and emergency copyreader, waxer, and headline-maker, I have been forced to redefine my responsibilities to the paper and the school. My recent snooping through the centermg the Media Center have led me to vanous ugly, sometimes trivial, sometimes nasty, conflicts within the powers that be at NC. We all hear rumors. If we snoop around enough,. we can usually find something below board enough to sat1sfy our inane desire to witness the lower sides of people. Person ality conflicts, power struggles, bickering, and slander happen all the time. At New College we are JUSt forttmate (or tmfortunate) enough to be halfway aware of what is going on. What ftmction should the paper serve in the midst of all this? We are not a four page gossip column, nor are we a public relations bulletin. The 'staff box' in the paper would indicate that we are a "student publication." It might logically seem that we are staying up all Wednesday night to present the students of New College with subjects of interest to them. But we arc also a newspaper, which means we must inform students of cUITent events Added together, we are presenting current events which are of interest to NC students. I like to think that we are presenting current events which are in the interest of NC students as well. Thus, if a power struggle or personal conflict is hurting the students, they should be made aware of it. If it is not going to hurt the students, then perhaps it should be left well enough alone. My Media Center article has no end because the situa-tion has no end It will probably be glazed over and forgotten, perhaps left for some future NC student to puzzle over. However, if the students' Media Center needs are not being met this year--they'll know why. S. L. M. The CATALYST FORUM Dear Sirs; Cassius comes! "Yon Cassius has an eye for power." Julius Ceasar, by Bill Shakes peare. At the beginning, it seemed as if all were to be the same the usual, the traditional lethargic air seemed to have en ve1oped the ew College campus. It seemed tmlikely that people would be interested in rtmning for office. Several people were approached by friends to consider rtmning for the office of Chairman, an office which is supposed to have one year tenure, but an office which has been occupied by three different people in the last three terms. No one wanted the problems and the frustrations of being the Chairman, or Chairwoman; the quagmire was too deep, and the rewards disproportional to the frustrations of the job. So where were the candidates? The women, still stunned it seemed from the letter sent by their fleeing sisters, either did not attempt, or were unable to organize themselves in time for the election. First year students, tmfamiliar with the older faces of New College (those who had already been to the "barricades" at least once), were even more confused by the whole elective process, and the meaning of many of the offices; what is the real purpose of the faculty committees? And, in the small hours of the a small of ation, a coalition Of sorts of people running for school posts, met in a smoke-filled room hidden somewhere within the Skinnerian confines of the Pei campus. Then, with a sudden rush, people appeared. On Monday, petitions started to proliferate from nowhere. As the deadline approached, people could be seen nmning through Hamilton Center asking their friends, and even asking strangers, to sign petitions. And when the dust had settled at 5:05 P. M, on Monday, only two positions did not have any candidates interested in filling the office.. Excitement, if it is proper to call it that, seemed to be generating. Lo and behold, there were five, cotmt 'em, FIVE candidates for the chairman's position (not all these people are going to grad school in January--can they all need something on their college record to entice grad school admissions officers, something like "Chair man of the Student Executive Committee of the New College, Sarasota, Fla.?). Posters, beginning with a colorful one cre ated by the Bill Navadi committee, were put up on and by the door at Hamilton. And election day! First, we were all greeted by a letter of Messianic proportions by Joel Stanton Steven Robert Howard Judd, promising not coke or even beer in the water fountains(remernber the good old days of junior high school-of course it was impractical, but "coke in the drinking fountains" was a universal cliche} but a solution to our tenure problem (some lega! complications were, of course, left tmmentioned). Then, as the hour of the polls approached, more ccyptic signs, scrawled in bright marker colors were seen taped to the door; people wanted to form "spontaneous" write-in campaigns for several offices. And during the day, candidates could be seen well within the fifty foot area of the ballot box, promising beer, political offices, even special consideration to special interest groups after all, really believes we September 21, 1972 The CATALYST welcomes letters f rom any of its readers. No unsigned letters will be accepted. really need a President, even a Provost--look how well we have been doing for the past two weeks?), And now, as the air-conditioning hums and WNCR radio distorts the voice of Lenny Bruce, I sit, here in my room, waiting for the Election Team at WNCR to get the final results of the election, to tell us who won, and who lost, and who will be involved in a special rtm-off election for Chairman. It seems as if politics has almost come to NC; no, there is not great interest, as only little more than 65% of the students bothered to vote. But there was an active at-tern pt on the part of several people to gain office, seemingly sincere attern pts to be elected to various positions in student and faculty government. And this being the case, well, maybe we won't have last year's problems, maybe some "joy" will return to NC maybe the SEC won't spend its time talking about dogshit and maybe things might be good arotmd here, and maybe things get done. The adage 1s that people get the governments they deserve Casey Green Dear Sirs: As leaves turn brown and th\ weather cools when Autumn so do a woma;a.'.s to keep abreast of women's affairs, I've been particularly interested in recent discussions of abortion. The feminists which I have heard on the subject of abor tion say that each woman has the right to do what she wants to do with her body. other groups are arguing about when life starts--at cunception, at birth, or somewhere in between--but the Sisters 1 have heard are ignoring this question. They seem to feel that this whole controversy is irrele vant. Hence, .. parent ly feel that their hold even if life does begin at conception. Let us assume this point for a moment, and consider the implications of it, (TO avoid muddying our so-far clear waters, and to help the pro-abortion side which I want to accept for argumental purposes, we will not consider a responsiblity resulting from the act of sex in the first place. This pro-abortion J:tance means that one being is not obligated to support another being, even though the para site will die without the support. I am not being critical here but merely trying to find the principle behind for the principle 1s one wh1ch I have held for quite a while. have held for quite a while. MY only regret is that more peop.le don't hold it and then cons1der modern politics in light of it. The women's movement (tO th.e ?est of my knowledge) IS J.ns1stmg that a woman has a ngh_t to use her body as she sees ftt. If she sees fit to work and enJOY the fruits of her work (e. g. wages) she has nght. And this I agree w1th. But suppose a man steps up and says, with the power of a society behind htm, "You can work for yollr own benefit, but if you do you must also work for my' benefit whether you want to or not. If you work two hours for yourself, you must then work one hour for me." This would clearly be wrong. I hope that all men and women would oppose this denial of human rights. But consider the tax collector. He says "Verily, as ye shall work yourself, so shall ye work for me. sure, he claims to protect you, but he takes your money even if you do not care for his particular brand of "protection." All of this appears to me of youthful naivete?) and all liberationists -should that governments make of their subJects, even !f the subjects call themselves "citizens. The actl vist will oppose this evil, the less active will at least refuse to support the system, and therefore not be a part of the evil. women and men who are taxed are not free. ---Bill conerly oear New College feminists, If you don't want to go to bed with a guy, don't. It's really pretty simple. You might also find it interesting to note that the males here are rather normal in terms of sexual behavior in that they (can) find it arousing for a chick to not wear a bra, panties, etc. or to change clothes in front of them, as 1 have seen some of yo1,1 doing. They're being quite normal in wanting to lay a chick who is doing this sort of thing, you're the one who is being pervet"Se. Jennifer Adair.

September 21, 1972 The CATALYST New SEC Discusses Budget The SEC held its first meeting of the year last night in H-3, chaired by Ron Davidson who won a runoff election held earlier in the day. Among the issues discussed were the Stu dent Chair Situation and Bread Board funds. Helen Gabel, until today acting chairwoman of the SEC, explained that this year Stu dent Chair is to consist of five speakers, each to be here for a weekend, and David Pini. The speakers are to be paid between $1250 and $1750 each, plus transportation, room and board. Ms. Gabel reported that Sheila Roher, last term's chairwoman, had arranged for the speakers and also for some kickbacks on the fees. However, she (Roher) reportedly refused to tell Ms. Gabel exactly who will be paid how much. Finally, a host committee was formed to take (TENURE from page one) library. copies of the preliminary study of tenure are available from Truzzi's office in A building. Tru:zzi has suggested that the position of lecturer be offered as a replacement to the category of tutor. A lecturer would be equivalent to an instructor or professor, but would be outside the system of tenure. under the present system all faculty members must be reviewed for tenure by their fifth year. Failure to attain tenure results in dismissal after a year of grace. The position of lecturer would offer faculty members a shelter from tenure proceedings. Dr. Gorfein stated that there is a tendancy for new faculty members to be quickly assimilated into the New college community, making it diffi cult to make a final decision on whether a. n:u::rnber Dr. Gorfeia iasasted that with a position such as lecturer, tha t those members of the faculty who were denied tenur e could r e m ain o n the staff indefinitely. by David Goldman care of such things as housing and food for the speakers. Gin ger Lyon and Jim Scappaticcio were appointed to the committee. Ms. Gabel then gave a report on the state of the SEC's finan ces. At the beginning of the term there was $7800 in the SEC's account, Right now there is about $5340 left. Most of the rest went to pay for Student Chair ($1250 for Dr. Edwin and $500 for David Pini). In addition the SEC spent $150 for the orientation party, $100 for Helen Gabel for work done over the summer, an indeterminate amount for miscellaneous office supplies and $350 in phone bills. According to Ms. Gabel, at least $60 of the phone bills were unauthorized calls. All of these expenditures were approved. The SEC also granted several new requests, Bryan Reid suggested that Ms. Gabel be given a bonus, since she worked more than forty hours a week this sum -mer and was only paid for fif teen hours. The SEC approved a $150 bonus. Three hundred and fifty dollars were allocated for a picnic for the college com munity in October. The picnic will resemble the Memorial Day picnic of 1971, which is reputed to have been the best party in New College history. Several items on the agenda were put off until Friday's meet ing, such as the selection of a Bread Board and the election of a vice-cl;airman. As the meeting neared its end, David Lerner suggested that the SEC censure the editors of the CATALYST for running an advertisement for Termpaper Arsenal, Inc., a firm that sells termpapers. o motion was made, however, and the meeting adjourned. The next meeting will be Fri day, Sept. 22 at 6:30.

A new rage is sweeping across sports circles here on the sunny campus of New College in Sarasota, Florida. Called "Milk Bag" by the game's enthusiastic participants, it takes its name from the principle equipment used, namely a used milk bag play fully removed from Esteps' dining hall. Although the rules of the game have yet to be formalized, it is quickly becoming a popular sport, as more empty milk bags become available each week, Photo -Robert Komman The availability of the equipment is attributed to these college students' strong belief in health foods.

Gresham Riley has been named to membership on the Florida Citizen's Committee for the Humanities, a group charged with initiating and conducting a state-wide program of public activities in the humanities Made up of leacing citizens, including three university presidents, the committee has been awarded an operational grant of $150, 000 to stimulate .Eublic programs in the humanities throughout Florida. Dr. Riley announced at the faculty meeting that he has booklets describing the procedures for obtaining grants for any faculty or groups of faculty who are interested. 2) The library not included money for the Media center in its budget. 3) Divisions would pay for any s.upplies they requested from the center. The humanities division formally confirmed the proposal in a vote on June 21, 1972. In his memo of sept. 11, pini wrote, "With the matter then settled I began work on preparing the Media center for the coming year in midJuly and received the complete co-operation of the staffs of the library and Humanities Division until, at the suggestion of Mr. phillips (Head of Technical Services at the library) 1 contacted Mr. Harra about being paid." NC's business manager, Mr. Harra, responded to Mr. pini's request with a memo which referred to Elmendorf's May 3lrst memo in which he suggested waiting on the decision until the beginning of the 1972/73 year. Although this memo was superseeded by the later (June 15) memo the decision was withheld by Mr. Harra until a meeting apparently held while Mr. Pini was on the Chicago Bus to Us." The final decisions conceml ng the Media center re sultt:d in the present situation in which 1) The Med1a center is staffed and supervised by the library. 2) The $4, 000 will be used to buy and repair equipment and, primarily, to pay the salaries of three students who have expressed an interest in working there. 3) The goals of the new supervision are a) to reorganize with the hope of making the center comfortable and work able, b) to catalogue all materials in the center and C) to impose a check-out system for the materials. The "staff" that is present consists only o f corinne Wilson, who i s a professional Librarian. corinne ar.ived at her present position as the result of a survey of the library conducted last year which recommended that she be replaced as director. Because she had tenure. corinne could not be fired, and she resisted pressure to resign. she was thus demoted to her present post. Her position is temporary in that there is a possibility of it being changed as soon as the reorganization is completed. The three students, men tioned earlier, would, apparently, run the Media center in her place. Because of the supposedly temporary status of her posi her relative unfamiliarity with the work, and the comparative smallness of her tasks, or. wilson is it difficult to become involved in her new position. She feels she is especially hampered by a lack of necessary equipment. warren phillips, Head of Technical services in the library, recently sent a memo to the division heads informing them that all Media center requests must be made to him and that he will inform "the person in attend ance" of requests. When asked why, being officially not connected with the center, he controlled such a vital part of the center's functions he replied that it was for organizational reasons: nthey don't have a phone." **** PATRONIZE OUR ADVERTIZERS **** PIC 'N' PAY DRUGS Student& interested in psychQlogjcal research again have the opportunity to work with irreJressible Don Hom a and David Gorfein, who jointly sponsor a research seminar in experimental psychology. This seminar, which was tre mendously successful. last year, is structured for independent rather than instructional investigation and provides students with a unique chance to engage in serious, in-depth re search in relatively unexplored are as of psychology. Last year, students worldng with Don Homa carried further the experiments of gists Posner and Keele and obtained significant results in re search involving the abstraction of information. Dr. Homa is intensely interested in con tinumg this study, particularly in its relation to the process of learning to categorize informa tion. He would also like to set up experiments in the following: Mechanisms of forgetting: Is information actually forgotten or merely inacces sible? Can this be related to the repression of unplea sant memories? Tachistoscopic experiments: Understanding the initial stages of perception and extraction of information from brief visual displays-do language habits influence such perception and extrac tion? Retrieval characteristics of information that is hierar chially arrayed and optimal ways of }n'esenting informa tion for learning. Multiditnensional scaling of High-speed scanning (tentative). Dr. Corfeia., who, Wl;lcltu-D ... .,.., __ .... ........ IIilofl_ terview, offers other ties for investigation. H e is especially interested in the dif ferent aspects of short-term memory and in the development of a model to account for the mechanisms of forgetting and retrieval in short-term memory. The seminar's greatest value lies in its capacity for pro-viding serious students with op-port'Uilities to contribute val-uable research to modern ex-perimental psychology. Last year, several students' papers were publiShed; some were presented at a semi-national convention of psychologists. Any students who feel that they might be interested in attending the seminar (Sunday, 7:30 p.m., NS2) or: in be coming actively involved with the research should talk to either Dr. Gor:fein or Dr. Homa. They can p:ovide the reading materials and answer questions.

September 21, 1972 The CATALYST Race for Chairman continued from page 1 solved. One thing I specifically object to is the current system of tenure. I think the SEC can tiy to do something about the situation by talking it out with faculty and administration, by pushing for a system of five-year renewable contracts, and by students on the Pres idential Advisory Committee to insure i:hat professors with progressive ideas aren't abruptly dismissed. Another thing I object to is the fact that students are gradually being limited to the professors interests instead of their own in pursuing tutorials and special projects. Basically, I want to help keep New what it was meant to be original-ly--an experimental school. 2. Catalyst: Last year there was a good deal of controabout the Student Court --tlie complicated legal details used, the points lost in trifles., and even the Court's ability to give clue process of law were called into question. What, if any thing, would you want to do toward reforming the Court? Wagner: There's really not much that can be done about it. No real feform appears possible at the present time except the total abolition of the Court, which wouldn't be a good idea either Most of the decisions made there aren't particularly earthshaking anyway. Reid: I couldn't say now what changes ue specifically needed on the Court, since I wasn't here second and third terms last year, but some changes are definitely needed. I would like. to think about Judd: As a general rule, 1 would be against such giving. I don't ob,ect to NC students offering manpQWer or individual funds to such organizations, but I don't believe that funds earmarked by and for the sanity of students should be come a primary source of funding for them. Klurfield: I'm not sure. Offhand, I would oppose giving such an organization more than a token amount-say $10 to $25--without the express wishes of the student body othexwise. Davidson: I faced the same problem as student council president in high school, and I refused the request then because I felt that student money should be used for the students only. Here, though, I'm not so sure. college SEC CHAIRMAN Ron Davidson 1ST Y'F.AR SEC REP. Noah Yanich Stuart Leviten Diane Turner 2ND YEAR SEC REP. Len Nuttal Amy Willis Thorn Mitanda 3RD YEAR SEC REP, Jim HUilter Ginger Lyon Janet Goldwater the past; it should take in more ads and do more to sup port itself. WRNC took a lot of money in the past because they needed a lot of stuff to get started with, but it should be fairly on its feet by now, Davidson: I definitely support it. They're both part of student life and need to be funded. Personally, I feel that the quality of WRNC programming should improve, but I'm sure it will this term because the station seems more interested' in the students this year. S. In looking over some recent SEC budgets, the catalyst has tound some very unclear and some very ridiculous items noted. Have you any definite ideas for restructuring the budget? Wagner: A lot of odd money to rely on the integrity of the SEC to spend their money correctly. If the SEC has the money and approves of the budget requests, there ism't much that can be done about it. Davidson: The main problem with the budget is that there are too many people dealing with too many petty requests and too many details. The integrity of the SEC is unquestionable, I feel, but the bureaucracy involved in the current method of handling the budget tends tQWard con fusion. If I win, I'd like JUst to see what the situation looks like and then change the procedure (and the constitution, too, if necessary) in every way possible to make it more efficient and streamlined.

REP, Pat Patterson FACtn..TY STATUS COMMITTEE, NAT, SCI, REP. Stan Skubic LlBRARY COMMITTEE John Hom Page five Reid: The dog rule was in stigated mainly to make the dog owners here assume respon sibility for them. I've talked to Dean Helgeson about it; I'm not sure what action I would take, but I would do something. Non-students are welcome on campus, as far as I'm concerned, as long as they act like civilized human beings. The next student who signs in a total stranger will probably ha have to be sharply taken to task by the Student Court, and I hope that would serve as a landmark case. If Quiet Hours violators are complained about more than once, the proctor can cut their power; it's the responsibility of the student body to maintain these rules by complaining to the Student court. Judd: The administration had been lax about enforcing the dog rule--as far as I'm concerned, the rule shouldn't be enforced too strictly as long as dogs stay out of Hamilton center, don't bother students, and have responsible QWners. If non-students contribute to campus life, they can stay; if not, every effort will certainly be made to get them off. A clause in the guest form about knQWing the guest for a certain period of time has been tried unsuccessfully before; in my opinion, students had better take responsibility for their guests, and the student on duty at the Hamilton desk had better make certain that students do knQW their guests, or there'll be trouble. If students are bothered by noise after hours, they should follow the usual procedure of asking first the noisemakers to be quiet and then, if unsuccessful, asking the proctor to cut the power in the offender's room. If one is really annoyed, one should it, but I feel at ent that .. STUDENT COURT John D. Moore DaaaC!yman Casey Green Matt McCarthy STUDENT ACADEMIC STATUS COMMITn:E Steve Dunlap comp in o cou ..... Klurfield: I wouldn't do anything about the dogs unless someone complains; the reason the rule exists is to protect students in case a dog really becomes a menace. I see no reason to do anything about non students on campus until (or if) they cause trouble. The situation of signing in total strangers as guests is not a good thing, but there's not much the at lar_Jle, and from the students Judd: I was Student Court prosecutor last year, so I'm pretty well acquainted with what went on. I have no concrete plans as yet, but' I definitely would not eliminate the Court. The students need some formal mechanism not invohed with the administration for dealing with com plaints. One thing that's needed is clarification of the powers the Court ought to have--the powers specified for it in the constitution are pretty limited, and unclear even when they're not limited! TRIM THE COURT Klurfield: I would streamline the Court from five to three justices and give it more power, such as the power to expel offenders when necessary It needs to have teeth put in it. The Csmstitution as it now stands gives the Cvurt almost no power. Davidson: I'= not in a position to say too much about the Student Court now, but I feel that both it and the SEC are too limited and too involved with unimportant details. I feel that the Court ought to give students due process of law in a less for mal more typically New Coliege fashion. 3. catalyst; HOW do you feel about the Bread Board voting money for outside causes as it did for United farm workers. wagner: If the situation was similar to that of last year --the SEC had the money and the measure had student support--! would agree. other circumstances, I m1ght not. Reid; It depends on the circumstances. The chairman isn't usually involved in tbis kind of thing, but whatever the students want to do with their money is their privilege. personally, I would want to put emphasis on conserving money. STUDENT PRESIDENT SEARCH COMMITTEE Pat Phillips Helen Gabel Jennie Oeff) Sharp SOC, SCI, DIVISION REP. ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE Ellen Horowitz Dan Chambliss Terry Weber Ellen Horowitz HUMANITIES DMSION REP. William Navidi students are more politically aware and more conscious of the outside world, and I would like to hear all tbe arguments for and against before I made a statement on a case like this. 4. catalyst: what is your position on SEC financial sup port for the catalyst and WRNC? wagner: I'm in favor of it. The paper was supported last year, but WRNC was cut off because the SEC wanted proof of listeners. I don't think I would do that. Reid: I would support them to a reasonable extent, as long as I was sure that both were doing everything in their pQWer to get funds from advertisers, subscriptions to par ents in the case of the catal yst, and so forth. Judd: I'm absolutely in favor of it. New needs intelligent, literate news sources, and I think both the Catalyst and WRNC provide news and a medium of communication among students. As long as they continue to provide students with these services, they should be subsidized. Kiurfield: 1 feel that they should be subsidized, but only within reason. The paper has gotten far too much money in SARASOTA t!f-7o r rei !/11 (Jf "Make it a habit -not an occasion" 1219 ht Street 955-4287 Randi Payne Carol Levenson Allie Roberts requests have been met in the past only because the SEC did have the money to finance them. I would cut down on the budget by reducing the student activity. to $10 and by substituting a $5, 000 lecture series for the current $10, 000 Student Chair, which was a good idea to begin with but which has gone far astray from its original purpose. I would also tighten up the budget wherever l could. Reid: 1 plan to run a tight budget. I want the money spent carefully enough so that we can make $5,000 last at least through the first term. Judd: Budget reform is vitally important, and it's been neglected too often in the past by SEC chairmen. I would definitely tighten the controls; another important thing would be to make figures available to all the students who want to look at them. After all, it's their money, and we should be specific about where it's going--print the ligures in the catalyst, for instance. Klurfield: I don't see any way of changing the budget JUSt now. personally, I would favor a tightening up of the budget, but the students have 6. what kind of action would you take on petty and often-flaunted regulations in the student code -for instance, violations of the rule about dogs registered before March 3, 1971; the rules concerning the presence of non-students on campus and total strangers signed in as guests on campus; and the Quiet Hour rules? wagner: The problem about the dogs is that the SEC simply passed unenforceable regulations; I wouldn't do anything about them. As regards non students, I have no obJections to them as long as they remain relatively benign presences--if they threaten the safety or property of students, I'll press for action. The rule about signing in strangers as guests is ex tremely hard to enforce, and there's little one can do except warn students of the risks involved. I might put a clause in the guest form requiring the student to have known the guest for a stated period of time if I didn't believe that it probably be filled in falsely. In general, not many people have wanted to J?rose cute violators of the QUlet Hours rules; I would leave the situation as it is unless someone gets really mad about it. the SEC can do as long as students want to take the risks in volved. Unless people really get angry and complain about violations of the Quiet Hours, I would take no action there, either. Davidson: The dog question is not as hot an issue as it was last year when the SEC was caught in the middle of it. Un less something new comes up there, I would let the situation alone. My feelings about non students on campus are that when they live here, they hurt all the people who pay room and board; in effect, it raises the rates for paying students. I would leave it up to the individual student to assume the risk for any guest he signs in, including paying for any damage the guest commits. I feel that problems about Quiet hour violations should be worked out between individuals -the people here are supposedly mature enough to be consid erate of others. A person who really makes a nuisance of himself in this regard can and should be reprimanded by the SEC or Student Court. The deadline for regis tering to vote is oct. 7.

September 21, 1972 The CATALYST Page seven film Review By Ira Halherstat Male Movement "Gimme Shelter at the Jerry Lewis Cinemas, a midmght ahow (II: 30!) Friday and saturday nights. The range of reactiOD to this film bas certainly been a wide one, from pauling Kael evoking images of Na:tism and converting them into images of media manipulator u abe cries 11Shame!11, to cinema-veriteists gleefully obseS$cd with "truth" shouting that film recorda life and that that's the way it is (It's all there, on film.). A more accurate statement lici" somewhere in between claiming total truth or distortion. Film critics, by their concern with discovering essences of tend rather often to lose sight of the experience and meamngs of a movie when that favorite issue of film's representation of reality come1 up. The point is that whether it be a true representation of historical events or a cynically corrupt and deceitful record of a whose only purpose is to be a stage for the f1lm (or somethmg in between--in my opinion a deliberately ambivalent statement by filmmakers who are conscious of their own role in the event), "Gimme Shelter is a film which raises issues about the of the new (green) (Counter-culture) about the route from the excitement of the Monterey fest1val (and Monterey Pop) through the commercial, popular success of Woodstock (and "Woodstock") to the inevitable disaster of Altamont (and 11Gimme Shelter). The film says something about where we are living now, and that (::;.nd that alone) is the reason that it is important, as a matter of cultural awareness, that you go and see it ( if you haven't) and your f:IWD conclusions. HOW ARE THEY GOING TO MAKE A MOVIE OUT OF THAT? n EVerything you Alw&.ys Wanted to Know About Sex* but were afraid to askt directed by and starring Woody Allen at the Bayshore Cinema Posing and answering the most popular quenion of this age of written permissiveness and of movies adapted from books, was a bad movie made from Portnoy's complaint. And when woody Allen made this movie, he, of course, topped the leas imagin-ative moviemakers who only know that such questions will cause many people to buy a ticket to their film, but are not sensitive to the hum"r of such questions. Allen is, and displays it from the very beginning, as the titles appear over a field of rabbits. Hf:IW did he make a movie out of a popular non-fiction bestseller relating little known sexual information? BY making a movie which is a spoof on movies. Ostensibly, "SeX'' is a series of sketches suggesting amwers to questions from the book, for example, the first is titled "Do Aphrodisiacs Really Work?" The results are fanciful, and in themselves rather humourous. Most of the humor is of a nightclub variety, though there are a few visual jokes on an obvious level. The most fascination thing about the movie, for me at least, is that Allen has another comedy going on on a totally different level. a visual and thematic satire. Each of the seven episodes is shot in a totally diffent visual, acting, and language style, imitating and satirizing one of the more cliched movie genres.

A LOOK AT 0 C S 0 (Editor's Note --The fol lowing article was written David Middleman near the flrst of the 1971-72 school year. For the benefit of both first year students and those of us who enjoy the article for its own sake, we here reprint it. Our ciatiOD is extended to Mr. Mtddleman. There are still students on campus who can remember The much-maligned Men's liberation movement has acquired a spokesman on the NC cam pus, an incoming student from Los Angeles by the name of Jack WaD!i,. As the Men's group gets a lot less serious publicity than the various Women's action groups locally and nationally, we invited Jack over for an interview. We hoped that we could determine JUSt what this contro versial group had in mind. THE CATAlYST: At the risk of being obvious, could we have your opinion of the women's movement in general? wang: We are all in favor of the goals of the various women's movements, although we are aware of the fact that our opinion is less than valued in those quarters. We will do anything possible to aid the women in their struggle away from band-me-df:IWn identities and the other oppressions visited on the modern female. The women are understandably relu?tant to accept our support, but 1t stands ready if they ever want it. C: 1'hat hardly sounds like a men's movement platform .. where does men's liberation come in? W: weli, without slighting the Women's position at all, we believe that we can make a good c aae ftX' 1he exikuce of massive and omnipresent oppression of the male in today's society, including many of the same sorts of trauma that the women rightly complain about. C: could you be more specific? w; Well, the cliche catchphrase for the Women's movement is "sex obJect, and I fully believe that the maJority of women regard most men in their lives as stereotyped semi-sentients to be ma.R au 1 ...... ....,..-1" ......... -., il. b the same fears, worries, and themselves. If that's not being treated as a sex object, then I don't know what is. C: That last was quite a stra1ght line .. W: True but think about it for a moment. This soc1ety has elevated sexual performance to such great importance that men are at the mercy of any woman who comes along .. especially if they actually go to bed. A surprising number of men are rendered completely impotent by the fear of failure to measure up to some ill-defined standard of sexual performance and many women use this fear quite viciously. An unprincipled woman can leave a man totally destroyed after a single evening of psychological warfare. C: But why would she? W: The same sort of reasons that men play nasty games with each resents the other for having the power to affect them, and is trying to demonstrate that they are immune, or is trying to nfight fire with fire" and get back at the other person. It is this sort of give-and-take that makes it necessary for both men and women to liberate themselves simultaneously; a uliberated person" loses acquired defenses against this sort of infighting and becomes exquisitely vulnerable to the unliberated sexist. c, This was supposed to be a funny interview ... 1 don't think that this is very funny .. W: you see, you have all along assumed that any group that sounds like an Art Buchwald invention is JUSt out for kicks well in our case you shouldn't. we're deadly serious.

Page eight At one o'clock last Sun day morning, a mysterious object appeared in the sky over Pei dorm number one. It settled to earth where it remained suspended between a balcony and some trees. The CATALYST The obJ'ect affectionate-' "b ly named "the E!1igma Y a social scientist who was crush ed by it as she emerged from her plush apartment, proceeded to haunt the entire Pei cam pus for a period of three days. The Enigma was apparently supported by a winding of polymers. These strands were identified as nylon by an ex-organic chemistry student now studying meta-physics on the Isles of Langerhans. In researching the Enigma the CATALYST discovered that a mysterious individual, carrying a glowing ember, ap peared simultaneously .the Enigma. Signs seem to mdlcate that this was one member of the same group of people responsible for the Mosquito Farm in Court Two last year. Further showed that the polymer strands were imported from Boston by bus by a member of a small but active subversive group on cam pus. An enterprising graduate student of the New College School of Business Administra tion attempted to con passing tourists into paying to see the Enigma. However he mysteriously disappeared after a group of conservationists complained that a flying shopping cart violated the air pollution laws. Reliable sources report that the Enigma did not resemble a shopping cart since what could pass as wheels were not on the bottom but on the side. Late Tuesday the Enigma was smitten to the ground by sterious Intruder seemingly extra-terrestial cur.ious members Buildings d 1 ca tured on film by ace photographer and Grounds, and 1t promptly obJect an space a len P disappeared.
