Dr. Constantina Safilios Rothschild, professor of sociology at Wayne State University, is first speaker in a series of perhaps five visiting lecturers, a ccording to Dr. Danforth Ross assistant professor of sociology who is coordinating the program. She will speak on "Sex Role Re'>Carch and Theory!' Dr. is director of the F ilmily Research Center at Wayne State, research associate of the Harvard Center for Population Studies and of the National Center for Social Research in Athens, Greece. Born in Greece, a citizen of that coWl try and a penn anent resident of the U. S., she has held professorships at the Knublv University in Athens, Western Reserve University, the University of Montreal and has taught at the Merrill-Palm er Institute. She is associate editor of a number of learned journals, has published five hooks and a host of articles, and is the recipient of very numerous academic hoz:ors.

The SEC approved this money, making it possible for Dr. Shapiro to speak Friday (Jan. 12) on Romanesquc vidson' s pro posal to change the modes of procedure in stuJe.nt elections. Davidson felt current procedures deep people from running and make elections more difficult to hold, The present system requires candidate to submit to Davidwn a petition signed by a certain number of people and DPvidson suggested eliminating the petitions, making it necessary for a person to only submit his name to the SEC chairman to become candidate. This proposal was passed 4 -1 by the SEC and the student body will vote .on the issue this coming Saturday, Davidson also brought up the problem of 4 cats that had been left on campus over vacation had been moved to the airport kennel and had not yet been claimed by their owners. The SEC voted to keep the cets at the kennel (at $1 00/ day I cat) tmtil Jan, 8 (Monday), and if they hnd not been picked up by then--to have them killed by the ASPCA at $2. 00 per cat. There will be a student election Thursday, J ;>nuary 18, SEC Chairman Ron David'OOn announced last Friday Ron DPvidson SEC chairman, has declared that part of the money that Jim Cohn, fonner chairman, was given last June for SEC summer expenses was used "illegitimately although he refused to disclose how the money Wt'S spent. "At this point he si ad, that "privileged inform at ion. Faculty Conszders Status, Finances The faculty met yesterday in their monthly meeting, and the bulk of the discussion centered on a senes of proposals by the faculty status committee on faculty status. According to or. Kinley, the proposals were submitted to help eliminate the proliferation" of faculty categories by standardizing them, and to officially designate the responsibilities and perogatives of the various faculty. The proposals divided the faculty into five l) permanent full-time faculty; 2) Per manent part-time faculty; 3) Temporary full-time faculty; 4)Temporary part-time faculty; and 5) Teaching consultants. They also spelled o I& t the "rights" of the faculty (Within each category) in such matters as ISP, tutorial, course, and contract sponsorship, voting pnveleges, field of concentration and baccalaureate sponsorship, and availability for "fringe benefits." 1n addition the rank of tutor was changed to tha t of instructor. A 11 these proposals were adopted unanimously. continued on p:.age 4 Davidson stated that he has received a letter from Cohn in which Cohn told what was done with money. However, said Davidson to reveal what this was would be harmful to several people When asked h he had attempted to verify what Cohn had told him, he said that considering what Cchn said "he"s not 11 Cohn was given the money last Jtme to use for SEC summer expenses He cashe d the check et Trail Bank and pre sum ably deposited it there At the beginning of hst tenn the money was tmaccotmted for.

In addition, all known summer expenses had been paid from the regular activity ftmd Both the Catalyst and the SEC wrote letters to Cohn, who is in Isnel. Cohn's response to the Catalyst's l etter although mailed in Oc tober, did not arrive Wltil late December In this letter Cohn said that he had put all the records of the money in an envelope and pieced the envelope in the SEC office.

But ad vertising abortion services is still illegal under the Medical Malpractice Act, a rule made in December by the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services, and a state statute described by II stations that have been carrying the ads include the Tallahassee Democrat; the Key.West Catalyst however, the agenc y has not yet paid for any of the ads they have run (and, according to editor Dan Chambliss, "it doesn't look as if they mtend to"): the paper can avoid legal proceedings if it does not demand payment for the ads and discontinues them immediately, says Chambliss. Originally, the agency (and, in tum, the news agencies) was advised by its lawyers that the disseminetion of abortion information was legal Wlder the new law. One of its attorneys (name withheld) in Bradenton, however, has recently declared that he was "unaware that the agency is advertising" and that he "interprets the law as prohibiting it. 11 (He added that he would be glad to defend the agency in the event of prosec ution.)

The first of these was on Novembe 21, 1972; it was attended by Ron Davidson, Jim Hunter, Thorn Mirenda, Ginger Lyon, Stuart Levitan, and Janet Goldwater. Subjects considered at this meeting were: The Bread Board was given $50 for wine for Thanksgiving. Joel Judd was to rewrite the constitution: it will 'then be submitted for approval. Hunter made a motion toreabolish Section One, but there was no second. Davidson moved that C and D dorms on the West Campus be designated for the Living-Learning Community; Hunter moved that no designation be made. Neither motion was seconded. It was brought up that ancy Ferraro wanted students to fill in vacancies in the Student Academic Stat!.IS Committee during the IS P. Consideration of possible actions to be taken regarding the Student Chair were postponed untie Term !i:, 1973. Levitan moved that breakfast and l=ch be respecti,ely chang ed from 8:00 9:00 to 8:30-9:30, and from 11:15 -12:30 to 11:30 12:45.

.Page four SEC-1SP from page 1 The second SEC meeting was held on November 28 1972. It was attended by Stuart Levitan, Ginger Lyon, Thoro Mirenda, Jim Hunter, Joan Helfman, and Ron Davidson. The Bread Board's request for $30 for an unspecified movie was not seconded. It was moved and passed to pay Davidson $53. 60 secretarial fees, as he had to do his own minutes during Term I, 1972. A motion was made to award the SEC $3. 60 to buy each member a Big Mac. and pass ed unanimously. It was brought up that Dallas Dort wished to build a path from the main arc on Palmer Campus to the stop light; the SEC expressed a negative opinion on the grounds that nobody would use it. There was some discussion on the subjects of students' eval uations of faculty at the end of a course and of what should be done' with the dormitories dul"ing Christmas break. An attempt was TDade to re-move a designation of specific area for the Uving-Learning Com munity, but was shouted down, Davidson proposed that he be appointed the SEC's representative to the Supervisory Committee which runs elections, and be given the power to fill the committee at a later date without specific approval by the SEC ; this was approved. It was decided to hold the next meeting on December 1, 1972, and the meeting was adjourned. To the best of this writer's knowledge, this meeting was never held. -(FACULTY, from page 1)---------------The faculty also agreed to adopt an Educational Policy committeed proposal that a nrtroJ16 dffort" be made to hire more women faculty members. The FPC, in the motion, listed several recommendations as to how this be accomplished, including making a special ef fort to hire women in those divisions where there are no women faculty, but a large proportion of women studetlts. The EPC also announced that they are considering the possi bility of shortening summer school from ten to eight weeks. Dallas Dort, chairman of the Board of Trustees, an nounc ed that college currently has $502, 000 "in the till," with another $200, 000 pledged o almost certain to be toward the Ford Foundation challenge Grant. He said that $300, 000 is still needed. He added la.:i.t vear the school was in a nrnilat sit;.uation and n1a 'lo: it, but that "doesn't necessaril;mean that we can do it this year." However he said that there were a number of alternatives to help raise the money being con sidered now, and "we think we'll make it."

Designs will soon be circulated so all may see the sculpture. The CRC also urged students and faculty to buy all their books for later in the term now, since all books not bought by Febru ary 15 will be sent back to the publishers on that date. It was noted that there are several openings in faculty committees, particularly the Admissions C:>mmittee, and faculty were urged to volunteer for these. Nancy Ferraro, college Record er, was appointed to be an ex-officio member of the Admissions committee. Dr. Bates reminded everyone of the open houses every Wednesday night at 9:00 in her apartment. She also read a testimonial to Soc ial Science faculty member A ;an Lichtenstein, who died during ISP. She announced that a fund is being established in his memory in Social Science. All money collected will then be sent to a charity of Mrs. Lichtenstein's choice.

The cdendar consists of four months of "traditional" study, one month of indepen dent work, and another four months of regular classes. Not unexpectedly, this is called the 4-1-4 calendar The 4-1-4 calendar is cur rently being discussed by the Educational Policy Committee, which has been researching the calendar since the beginning of September, 1972 The 4-1-4 calendar is pres ently being used in several dozen colleges across the na tion Most of these, according toN ancy Ferraro, college re corder, are small Catholic schools that use the calendar because "they think it's inno vative. However, several better-known schools, including M. I. T. and Hampshire College, have adopted this cal endar Ms. Ferram said that the number of schools that have changed to a 4-1-4 system in the past few years is 11 am a '' The present New College calendar coincides partly with those of a very few schools, and coincides completely with those of none. Adoption of a 4-1-4 calendar would permit transfers to and from many more schools without the pres ent one-to three-month time lag. According to Ms Ferra:rq if such a calendar were adopted, both students and faculty would then be able to participate in a number of exchange programs, giving added variety to both the student body and the curriculum. In addition, she said, l! 4-1-4 program would reduce the attrition rate that ew College perenially suffers dwing second and third terms. However, while there has been attrition in the past, the number of students currently enrolled on campus is 38 higher than that of the previous term. Two terms a year instead of three would limit the number of courses a student would b e 9ble to enroll in during his or her college career. Further, courses are currently geared to include four months of learning in a three-month period, and a switch to a 4-1-4 system would therefore involve a reorganization of course structure.
