Volume VIII Number 16 Referendum Friday on FPIRG Organizers See Broad Support The New College organizing committee for the Florida Public Interest Research Group (FPIRG) announced at last Friday's SEC meeting that it had collected 349 signatures on the recently circulated petition. This petition expressed support for FPIRG and request ed a referendum on the constitutional amendment p-oposed by the group. J ury Selecte d In Gun Case Six regular and three alternate jurors were chosen in a special pre-trial session of the Student Court Tuesday evening in the Fishbowl. The .llewly selected jtny will hear the case of the community v. Ross Ackerman. Mr. Ackerman, a secondterm student, has been charged with possesion of "weapons or dangerous implements which give rise to feelings of intim idation or disturbance amcng members of the College community, as determined by the Student Court. 11 rne meeting wa:. close t o prevent the possibility of prospective jurors overhearing unacceptable prejudicial testimony. Proceedings will resume Thursday night at 6:00, and will be open. REFERENDUM Student Chair As a result of the petition, voting will be held this Friday, (tomoiTOw) on the amendment which stipulates that the SEC shall forward $1 of each student's activity fee to FPIRG. It also covers other things, including a mechanism to re turn money to those who so request. Mem hers of the organizing committee felt that the large number of signatures was evidence of "broad support for FPIRG among New College students." Craig Blakeley, a spokesman for the group, declared that as far as he knew, "only twenty to twenty-five students had flatly refused to sign the petition. The bulk of those who didn 1t sign were those who, for some reason, we were unable to contact. Jennifer Thorner, another member of the organizing committee, pointed out that "the signatures on the petition must still be translated into votes in Friday's referendum." The balloting will be held .in Hamilton Center from 11:15 AM to 6 PM. To pass, at least hall the student body must vote, and the FPIRG amendment must be supported by either an absolute majority of the total student body or 2/3 of those voting. Blakeley stated that "the FPIKG organuing "'omnut\;ec has gone to great lengths to inform everyone about the FPIRG concept", and that if FPID.G is approved, it "will continue to encourage the widest possible student participation."

Next year there will be no g;ant, but Drabik is op saying Development willmtensify their fund-raising efforts on all fronts. SPECIAL SESSION from page one going of students and tmsolicited comments from the floor would be disruptive to the meeting. After discussion the request was voted upon and defeated by a 4-3 vtte. Mr. Haver then presented his argument which was that the sentence levied by the court on the workers was too lenient, and asked the SEC to ban the jewelry workers from campus indefinitely. Some questions as to the precise meaning of the :>elirence as levied were raised by the prosecutol'S and others, and Mr. Laatsch ruled tllat tlw :>thltence was to be taken as read by Chief Levitan and interpreted by each member of the SEC. Jim Htmter then brought up the question of whether the SEC had the right to accept or reject the case, and if so, which they wanted to do. Aik" discussion the SEC decided by a 3 -2 vote not to hear the appeal. The meeting was then adjourned.

Page four SEC from page 2 Hwter then presented the Bread Board $10 to court prosccuter for keeping records, $25 for sheet music for the Madrigal singeiS, $5 for keeping Student Court supplied with copies of documents and $190 to WR C. These were all passed 8-0. Before Hunter p.-esentcd for student publications, Laatsch presented the SEC with a new way to han dle all publications on campus. Anyone wanting to start a pub lication be backed for a certain amount, that amount to be determined in relation to hmv many signatures the ptblisher could get for a petition. ln this way any publication would have as much support as the students want to give it. Luker suggested that a subcommittee examine the proposal andre port back to the SEC. He made this a motion, that a subcom mittee of four be appointed, and that they report back in a week's time. The motion passed. 1adge Peck (fil'St year) made a motion to table discussion of El Douche or CATALYST funding until the subcommittee could make its report, but the motion failed 4-2. El Douch's request for $130 was brought up next. After discussion the request was passed 4-2. Wagner and Hun ter cast the tHo negative votes. The CATALYST then made an appe a1 to the SEC because its request to the Bread Board for $400 had failed. Hunter said his objection was that the CATALYST was paying Tom Sommers a $25 a term salary as business when others doing similar work aren't being paid. Dan Cham bliss, CATALYST editor, ex plained that typists were also paid per column inch; photo graphers were paid for their materials. Lee Harrison, ad vertising manager, receives a commision on advertising, as his job requires specialized skills. Sommers, Chambliss said, had saved the CATALYST money by organ:Uing billing and keeping rcc:>rds in a C'on sistant and manner. After some more discussion, the motion granting the CATALYST $400 was pas.;ed S-1. Chairman Laatsch voiced the opinion that it was "entirely approiXiate for the SEC to look at business procedures" of the organizations they funded, in connection with bath the El Douche and CATALYST is sues. The meeting was then adjourned. TRUSTEE ROSEMARY BOUDEN (above) listens carefully during the second day of board meetings. The CATALYST February 15, 1973 Tiffany: On Record poco/ A Good Feehn' to Know (Eprc;-KEJ!OOl) --poco has always been one of my favorite folk-rock,. country rock groups even from their early days w?en they were m performance competition with the Byrds. Smce then they hav,. evolved theH own style which is unmistakeable and can truely be called "traditional poco." Much of their style was actually a can;.-over from their beginnings with Buffalo Springfield Stephen Stills. In fact, in their newest album, !: to Know they resurrect a Stephen Stills song from tner1rst Buiii!Cf Springfield album. The new rendition of "Go and say Goodbye" is drastically different from Stills' original w?en it came out. TIE maio difference is a more rock on this number. This new level of rock involvement is also a very prominent part of the rest of the album. It is still g_ood old poco, but slightly more high powered. As Bud scoppa_ m the Rolling Stone described the change, "they wm_d out wtth t he tongue of a country-tuned oerek and the Dommos." Th1s is best exhibited in the title cut, "A Good Feelin' to Know," probably the best song on the album. There have been many comparisons of this album to Eagles' and Doobie Brothers' recent albums .. Although t_here are similarities in that there is more rock mtegrated w1th the country and folk tendencies, the music still com_es out as Poco alone. perhaps this is partially because poco finally appears to have stabilized its constitueocr--same members on this album as the last: R 1chie Furray, Timothy B. Schmit, paul cotton, George Grantham, and Rusty Young. The only change has been in locality. They've moved from Los Angeles (cough, cough) to Boulder and Denver, colorado. AS far as rlm concerned, that's almost as good a move as anyone could rmke, unless of course they were to move to. Tallahassee (try it, you'll freak out). If all the above B. S. isn't enough to sell you on t_hts album, there is a real down-homey eight page photo album mcludcd with a picture of Rusty young that looks exactly like our own Tyler EstlerJJ What a physic! WRNC SUNDAY MONDAY TUESDAY WED ESDAY America/Homecoming (Warner Brothers BS 2655) Just a brief note on America's new Album, Homecoming, as I'm sure you've probably run across one of the many of reviews now out on this album. The maJOr concensus 1s that it's more of the same from the first album. That it is, but so what. If you like imitation crosby, Stills and Nash harmonies and acoustics, then America are the best. Actually the point of criticism seems to come righ_t d?wn to the fact that they have successfully mastered the tn<>?1c parallel fifth singing style of S, C & N, and then have dnven 1t into the ground with over usage. Again it's true t_hat they have perfected this style so that it is almost flawless, hve or on record. But again, if you like it (and I do), so what?. My personal criticism bas nothing to do with the style or the Instrumentation, which are both highly perfected. I am perturbed by the puerile words on most of the songs (Same as last album), except for "Ventura Highway" and "Head and J:ieart." I feel that the lyrics of an album cut are equally as tmportant as the instrumentals (unless of course it is an in:>trument:'-1--or only acappella). In the case of the_tr harmooies(rcferriog to the votces as tnstrument, tgn.or>og and fine guitar work more than make up for the made9uac1es of their lyrics. It's JUSt too bad they don't get off g urn trip and graduate to some other form of oral grattftcatton. Perhaps something more mind expanding like Mail Pouch chawin' tabaccee to cut their sweetness. oh well, what else can you expect three military dependents, raised in the rigors of apple pie (I know, having been there too). Anyhow, back to the album. It is slightly more pohshed than their first endeavor and 1t is JUSt as good--maybe better. I can't see degrading a group because their style copies a four year old style. where WOUld that leave sha Na a, Flash cadillac, or Dadd} cool who are trying to keep alive a style. born in the 1950's? To make a short story longer, Hornecorntng is a happy, carefree continuation of the first Amenca album.
