East Lansing. The group laid plans for the annual meeting of the Society which will have its first birthday next month. 1embership in tlJe Society IS growing steadily, Feeney sotd, with approxim ateli' 100 members, including 20 institutional memberships. The Society was formed at NC in February of last year, when 33 representatives from colleges, 'I.D1 iversities. folDldations, and community and government agencies from all parts of tne nation set up the grouR whose is sharing of lnformatJOn and resourses in undergraduate domestic field studies. NC student Don Richards is ss:retary-treasurez of tjle So ciety, witich derives its support f1 :>m membership dues and trom a grant from the Bowman C. Lmgle Trust of Chicago, 'ew College probably has the largest percentage of stu engaged in domestic 1 :d study as a regular part of tneir academic activities of any college in the nation, Feeney said. That estimate w ould not include such programs as Antioch's work-study program or vocational training. Institutional members of tne Society now include the Universities of Oregon, Connecticut, and Dayton; Adelphi, San gamon State and Long Island Universities; Lake Erie Wilmington, Goddard, and eV: Colleges; Johnston College of the University of Redlands, Li >ingston College of Rutgers University, ew College of Hofstra University, St. Mary's College of Maryland. the New York State Education Department, the Great Lakes Colleges Association, the Central New York Regional Learning Ser vice, and represm tatives of a great many other academic and governmental institutions. Shap1"ro Delivers Art Lecture Friday, Januaiy 12, at 8:30 pm, Professor Meyer Shapiro of Colmnbia University lectured on and 2llSWered '!' nstions about Rom anesquc architectural sculpture. New College Professor Henry Graham introduced .1\-ofessor Shapiro, saying that he was considered "one of the most coherent and sensitive inter of art, past and present, of our time, Professor Shapiro then presented the audience with the problem he would be diswith accompanying slidell the ftUlction of architectural sculpture in relation to reprcse:'ltation, composition of design and ph i1osophical expression. P1ofessor Shapiro used the slides to illustrate the role of SL ul pturc as a part of a building--how it not only conformed to the shape of the area it ornamented, but often formed a composition in and of itself, or influenced the nature of the field it occupied. He used as examples some Greek artitecture, but primarily the facades of old French cathedrals.

Needless to say, doing just that requires all the time and energy our minds and bodies allow. Our purpose in electing leaders is to give a trusted person the chores we don't have time to do. The purpose of government is simply to take care of matters which concern the people as a whole. The people as a whole are concerned with getting themselves together in the least difficult manner When do the people become involved with their government? When their government interferes with getting to gether. There should be no doubt that the noncommital porcupine won't stick his spikes out when stepped on. It is to the SEC's credit that it has aroused no passions in its constituents. Anger is anger no matter where it is directed and fanatic enthusiasm runs as strong for good government as it does for bad. To our future leaders we can only say: lf you can make getting together at New College easier or better--more power to you ... but don't worry about "lack of interest. '1 If we want something bad enough--you'll hear about it. And, while I'm at it, thanks.

Daryl Laatsch In my four years at New College the school has lost its original direction. One important reason this has happenned is because students have lost all influence on policy-making. The change to the present all-contractual academic system was the result of cooperation between students and faculty, in an attempt to move away from a strictly courseoriented education. That change. intended to liberalize the educational program, has since been distorted. The faculty has instead retained its emphasis on course work and has ignored the innovative possibilities inherent in the allcontractual system. The facUlty, in general, has become less responsive to student concerns and instead is moving in the direction of small hoeral-arts colleges. The conseiVative emphasis placed on tenure as a criteria for retention with less importance placed on the faculty member's relationships with students is an example. New College administration, or more precisely, the lack of it, has also eroded student influence. The Business Office, which for years has been the he art, certainly not the soul, of the administration, originates policies in many are as in which it should have no authority. Examples include our rather peculiar admissions procedures of late, such as admitting fifteen people two days before the beginning of this term, obviously for the money. Our problem, then, is in regaining a voice in policy at New College. It should be the special job of the student government to find ways to affect those who presently icy to this end. First, e d has to be more aware responsive to st-ud2nt opmlon. lets get Charles Harb: MY opinon of the present SEC administration: The current SEC admin istration has impressed me with with its atmosphere of an in dependent club-type organiza tion. I have attended several SEC meetings this year and last year, and have notlced that the SEC governs in meetings which are rarely attended by students, sporadically attended by some SEC members, and very poorly advertised, as to pu bhcly circulated preme-eting agendas and post meeting minutes and motions passed. The SEC chairman took many liberties, and did many things as acting SEC spokesman which the SEC neither knew about nor coo -doned. I don't criticize P.on D vidson too severely for the way he ran the chairmanship-he got things done when they might not have been done. But most of what the SEC 11did was what Ron Davidson pro posed and pushed. The problem of the SEC, which both causes and is reflected in what I have previoUI. ly said, is the lack of student involvement in the SEC. It is considered fortunate at SEC election<> if as many candidate! dates run as there are positions available. Whoever runs usually wins, and voting by students in any election is never very heavy. That one day a term is all most students participate in student government the SEC is not representative. My ISP, TopiCs in New college pohbcs, was my prepar afton for an SEC chairmanship. part of it involved a questionnaire I wrote and distributed to faculty. some of the question tions dealt with faculty opin ion on student involvement in certain decision-making and on problems of the SEC particularly. Of the responses 1 received (23 at last count), the trend seemed to be a surprising amount of willingness for in<:reasing student participations in decision-making at NC while the most common criticism of the SEC was that it was not a true representation of student opinion. The conclusion is obvious--without faculty and administrative respect tor tbe SEC as a true representative ol tne stuueucs, student government at NC is not as effective as it could very easily be. what 1 hope to achieve as SEC chairmaD! SEC chairman campaigns in the past have been saturated with promises of student power in every conceiv able area of college affairs, and inevitably the term ends with old unfullfilled promises, and new, but somehow familiar promises from all the new candidates. The problem of the SEC, as I have explained, is lack of student interest and participation in student ment again (that's right, again it used to be that way.) WTth this accomplished, I'm convinced the SEC will become what it could be and student involvement in college decision-making will reach new heights as faculty and administration begin respecting what today doesn't really deserve very much respect. MY tentative plans to implement mv solution include! a. a survey of what students want b. hiring of an SEC secretary to keep concise minutes c. circulation among faculty, students, and administration of meeting minutes and future agendas d. an annual orientation of first term new students on student government at NC e. a long range reorganization of student government 1 am still worldng on Most of all, 1 want individual students to talk to me and their SEC representatives to let us know what they want. In my four years at New college the school has lost its original direction, one im portant reason this has happened is because students have la; t all influence on policymaking. The change to the present all-contractual academic system was the result of cooperation between students and faculty, in an attempt to move away from a strictly courseoriented education. That change, intended to liberalize the educational program, has since been distorted. The faculty has instead retained its emphasis on course worl< and has ignored the innovative possibilities inherent in the all contractual system. The faculty, in general, has become less responsive to student concerns and instead is moving in the direction of small liberal-arts colleges. The conservative emphasis placed on tenure as a criteria for retention with less importance placed on the faculty member's relationships with students is an example. New college adm inistration, or mare precisely, the lack of it1 has also eroded student influence. The Business office, which for years has been the heart, certainly not the soul, of the administration, originates policies in many areas in which it should have no authority. Examples include our rather peculiar admissiom procedures of late, such as admitting fifteen people people two days before the beginning of this term, obviously for the money. our problem, then, is in regaining a voice in policy at New college. It should be the special JOb of the student government to find ways to affect those who presently make policy to this end. First, the SEC has to be more aware of and responsive to student opinion. Secondly, working committees within the SEC need to be established on educational policy and community policy. Students have not, for quite quite a few years, had occasion to manage their own affairs. Given the opportunity, I think that we can do so capably. ]

Three m{l Ol' catagories in the request were: l) 1 arge group activities 2) more "efficient" methods of education 3) innovation in educational methods, According to Educational Policy Chairman Robert Knox, this request stemmed from a general feeling among some trus tees that "there is no innovation going on here. It is felt that, although there is some emphasis on tutorials and oneto-one contracts, it is difficult to see such "small in novations. Following the increased enrollment, it has become necessary for more "efficient" means of instruction through curricular innovations or larger groupings of students, to meet the increasing education al needs of these students. It is important for the faculty to show what has occured as a result of the increasing number of students. The requests after completion by each faculty member, were turned in to Dr. Kno x.

The idea was born of a man with vision, a man whose initials are also his first name, a man who shall hereafter be kno'vn as "The Fatl1er of the Revolution''. In his own words, "For the past few the SEC has been run like a d1ctator-ak 1 1? ,. ship. so why not m e 1t ega Unfortunately, his idea of a beautiful society was corrupted by man who wanted power. Fortunately, their Grand Jr quisitor has allowed me to see that this is the true way. So, I hope vou will pled_ge your allegiance. Before 1ts too late. The CATALYST The threat of a political uphea\ al during the upcoming SEC election is being posed by a small armr of fanatics. who insist that the 1r leader JS the king and rightful heir to the throne. Rumors concern-i ng the o,erthrow of the SEC by force and violence and tJ:e extablishment of an unconstitutional monarchy have been fully substantiated by his Royal Highness, King David. The King has issued tl1e following ultimatum to t11ose who doubt the authenticity of his s,overeignty: "Beware infidels, pretenders to the throne, and supporters of charlatans! God has ordained by rule and I shall ascend to. the throne Friday. My army 1S anxious to spill the blood of ti1e heretics who infect our Kingdom. Accept me with the respect and love due to a benevolent King and I will re strain my army. However, hostility to my rule or fis-. belief in my divine power wll result in a savage and merciless plunder of the community by ti 1 e warriors of the leopa:d. The King is known affectlonatelr by his men as the Lord of the eopard. Legend has it that as a fledgling young wal' rior, the King faced a leopard so fierce that even the temper I of his sword deserted him in fear. Standing without am10r with a rather limp rapier, David spat upon tilC leopard, a quid of majestic magnitude. The leopard was out of his skin and David was dubbed "King Davi.d. Lord of the Leoprrd." King David has his men by offermg each memi.Jer of his army half his kingdom. This mighty Lurd of the Leopard has spoke of erecting a wall about the kingdom and building catapaults to heave 100 pounds of burning marshmallows at the barbarians who threaten the security of our borders. George Krant' has been appointed Minister of Religious Persecution and Head of the Secret Intelligence Ser vice. Krantz will serve as Grand Inquisitor to purge the nonbelievers from our Kingdom. The King has promised Krantz a limitless supply of political opponents by declaring Holy War on Ringling Art School and Eckerd College. The King summed up his holy mission saying, ''I pledge to build ew College into a mighty emp1re and promise peace ond prosperity to those who have faith in God and my mission to carry out His holy work on Earth.
