The Volume VI, Issue 8 October 22, 1996 Understanding "Economic Injustice" by Mario Rodriguez It's n o t supposed to be preachy or 'What you as a New College student should do right now [to fight poverty],"' said Meg Moore, a sociology major orga nizing a three day symposium on economic injustice in America. Rather, the occasion represents an effort to in crease student understanding and appreciation for the complexity of the iss ue "When we talk about the fight to es tablish economic justice," she said "we're talking about fighting poverty. Initially, the symposium scheduled for October 28-30, was to be entitled "Poverty in the United States." The con notations of poverty however, led Moore a nd Haley Grossman who is organizing the second day of the symposium, to shift the title, and therefore the emphasis of the event, to "Economic Injustice." Focusing on injustice is focusing on society and society's structure," said G ross man. Instead of looking at poverty as a personal problem, Grossman prefers to address the issue as a societal problem She feels poverty implies inactivity.

That's what Margaret Peggy" Hendon to say about her tenure at New College the Thursday before Fall Break, her last day here. On that same day, her replacement, Bob Quigley, arrived to serve as our new food service director. You might have seen him; he was the guy in the cafeteria wearing the baggy pants with the jalepeno peppers on them. Hendon was scheduled for a vacation during Fall Break and so Marriott thought it was the perfect time to make the change in management. Hendon is now working for Marriott back over in USF Tampa, where worked prior to her stint at New College for seven years. Hendon had been transferred to New College in 1995 to replace the first Marriott Director, Manny Pasarin. As the third new food service director in two years, Quigley noted that there were a number of mistakes in f o od prepa ration being made. Quigley was a hotel chef for ten years and executive chef for Eckerd College for the past two years, and he plans to use his experience to im prove food preparation because, as he said, "Who wants to work and listen to people bitch all day?" A number of changes are intended for the cafeteria. Bulk cereal dispensers and condiment pumps are to be installed More shelves will be put in the Convenience Store for a larger sele c tion and it will now be open on Sund a ys Prices have been lowered for beverages and the salad bar. Different beverage lines will be offered; instead of Twist whatever that was), we will have rasp berry tea and sugar free fruit punch and lemonade.

Students intending to plant a gumbo limbo tree near the north steps into first court on Sunday hit a water conduit in s tead causing a spectacular fountain of water to shoot about 15 feet up into the ky. Physical Plant employee David Leach was called the same day to tum off the water supply until repairs could be made, thus ending the short-lived geyser. Director of Housing and Student Affairs Mark Johnson said it was too early to comment on the situation. He said the he "did not yet know the full story ," but that the student s r es p o n s ible may find that the cost of the rep a irs will be passed along to them Students living in the courts did not lose their water supply ; the pipe s upplied water to the Sudakoff Center where water was shut off until Monday morning the broken pipe was repaired The USF repair crew cut around the break and put a replacement sl e eve o ver the gap. According to the crew the students were lucky they had not hit the phone lines, power lines, or gas pipes which were also in the vicinity "If he had hit the electric," said one of the crew, "He would have lit right up

Gum was sold for a quarter a pack when it cost Marriott $0.24 for each, so the price will go up if they con tinue to offer it at the Convenience Store. And Quigley plans to make full use of that $20,000 meal planning computer in the cafeteria office. There are several thousand indexed recipes in there, and to quote Quigley, "Fun stuff, eh? We can get right back into the '90's." The beer and wine sales that were promised in the food service contract back in 1994 have been written out of the contract, because the vast majority of the students here are not of legal drinking age. When asked about the alcohol, Mark Johnson said, "I think it's unfortunate that the legal drinking age is 21." Johnson went on to add, "I don't think fewer stu dents drink; somehow, access is still there." By request from USF cigarettes have never been sold here, even though many Don't (orgello fa I October 22, 1996 here are of legal age to purchase them. There's going to be a food service committee meeting at 9:30 AM this Thursday If you want to meet the new food service director. Quigley said that he wants to improve the relationship between the students and the management: "We're all in this together. We might as well try to make the best of everything." And with Quigley wanting to put speakers in the back to play Grateful Dead music during work and all, we might get to hold walls in the cafeteria.

The Catalyst "INJUSTICE"FROM PAGE 1 the focus of her day is "Grassroots Efforts for Economic Justice," that is, citizens working to improve and restructure their communities from the inside out, Grossman does not want to offend her guests. "I want this to go well for the people who speak here," she said. Among the people on Grossman's list of visitors are Lois Williams, member of a quilting collective organized during the Civil Rights movement in Selma, Alabama, a representative from a Navajo reservation in Arizona and Sandra Tevi, a Sarasota resident who founded a neigh borhood organization to end crime and strengthen her community. The second half of each day will be Q&A panels between the speakers and students, hopefully allowing Novum Collegians to glean a more comprehen sive understanding of the issues at hand "[The community leaders] have a lot of really valuable knowledge to share with us," said Grossman. She expressed the hope that more lasting student-speaker relationships may develop from discus sions, perhaps in the form of ISPs or volunteerism. Organizations within the community are not the only groups combating eco nomic injustice, however. One of the central questions of the symposium will be the degree to which private, grassroots or governmental agencies are more effec tive in dealing with the problem. On October 28, the symposium will meet at 7 p.m. at the College Hall patio. The subject will be private groups battling poverty in America, such as the Catholic Urban Program out of East St. Louis, a 40,000 person ghetto in Illinois. The sec ond meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. on October 29 in the Cook Hall living room and will focus on grassroots efforts to counter economic injustice. The final discussion will be the fol lowing day in the College Hall Music Room, also at 5:30 p.m., and will deal with governmental responses to poverty, including a Florida state representative, Shirley Brown, who will explain the im plementation and implications of recent Florida welfare legislation. Moore wants to examine American re actions to economic injustice, what is currently being done to combat the situa tion and the prospects for future approaches to the dilemma of the eco nomically disenfranchised. Although Moore stresses the complex ity of the issue of economic injustice, the premise of her symposium is succinct. "Not only do people have ... political rights," she said, "they have the right not to starve, to have a place to live." October1 22, 1996 3 OUTSIDE THE IVORY TOWER International Russian President Boris Yeltsin fired armed forces chief General Mikhail Kolesnikov on Friday. No reaon was given for his dismissal. The day before, Yeltsin dismissed security chief Alexander Lebed. Yeltsin cited Lebed's argumentative nature and ambitions to be president as the reasons for Lebed's dismissal. National Thousands were without power and a child was killed as a result of a violent storm that swept through New England on Sunday. Officials declared a state of emergency in parts of Massachusetts as roads and homes in low-lying areas wre flooded. As election time nears, President Clinton has made a new proposal to enforce a "zero tolerance" regulation for teen drinking that would require teens to be tested for drugs and alcohol before recieving their drivers licenses. The proposal carne about after an attack by the Dole-Kemp campaign, which stated that while Clinton has been in office drug use among young teens between the ages of 12 to 17 years of age has risen 105 percent. Clinton responded to the attack by stating that only 10% of the nation's children are "on the brink of getting in trouble" and that this proposal, if enacted by Congress, would "get them away from drugs before it's too late." State A national park just north of the Kennedy Space Center which supported clothing-optional sunbathing is being threatened by park rangers who believe that such nudity has led to lewd and las civious behavior in the past and that it is harmful to the environment. Many nud ists have frequented the park for the past 50 years and are outraged that they are being harassed, arrested and intimidated by gun-toting rangers whose campaign they feel smears them as perverts and prostitutes. The park won round one in the court battle to ban nudity in the park; a state appeals court is expected to rule soon on the nudists' appeal.

This was no small feat, requiring the diligence of our campus utilities manager, Dick Olney, to keep after contractors to get their part of the job done. First, a gas line had to be brought underground to the cafeteria. Then an old rest room in the kitchen had to be retrofitted to accept the new gas hot water heater This step required the instal lation of a metal door for safety purposes. And finally, lines bad to be run from the hot water heater across teh kitchen to the dishwasher. Although this project came at an inopportune time (a week before the fall semester began), it really is a blessing in disguise. Previous to this everything in the kitchen was electric. Anyone who bas spent a significant time cooking realizes that electric stroves are not the most en joyable or energy efficient way to cook. Now we can begin to retrofit our electric appliances. Back to the dishes. I don't think that anyone enjoys eating off of Styrofoam on a regular basis. However, that is what we are faced with if students disregard the new policy of not removing the dishes from the dining area. Please, if you want to take your food to your donn room or across campus, ask the Marriott staff to pack it "to go" or better yet, bring your own reusable Thpperware containers. We were faced with the same situation last year; eating off of Styrofoam since Marriott had switched because so many of their "real" dishes bad not been returned. However, there was such an outcry from students over using so much Styrofoam that the SAC and the food service budget (not Marriott) split the $3000 cost of new china. Unfortunately in less than one se mester (by the end of this past spring) most of the new dishes had disappeared. Don't let this happen again! We are being given one more chance. Director of Housing and Student Affairs Mark Johnson has spent $1429.48 on new dishes. He is also paying two students for the next two weeks to acquaint the cam pus community with the new policy of not removing the dishes from the cafeteria area. They will be around during meal times to make sure students understand and comply with this policy, as well as re member to bus their dishes. Besides the dining area, eating outside on the picnic tables with the new china is okay but other areas in Ham Center and across campus are off limits. Maintenance staff will not be responsible for returning dishes left in other areas. It is up to all of us to do our part to lessen our environmental impact. Not only is the production of Styrofoam haz ardous, this substance constitutes a major portion of our waste stream. A study con ducted last year by the Solid Waste Reduction tutorial assessed that Styrofoam comprised 49.2% of Marriott's waste (which we pay for, by the way) and 23% of the waste stream from Hamilton Center and the Pei Dorms. So remember: leave the new dishes in the cafeteria, buy some inexpensive Tupperware containers if you are a regular "to go" person, and bring your thermal mug for a $.50 price reduction in sodas, fruit-flavored fountain drinks and coffee Anne Tazewell is the Resource Conservationist for NC/USF.

The Catalyst THE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES IN REVIEW by Thomas Heisler The debate season has come and gone with all four candidates for national office making cases for their ticket. The most striking metamorphosis that transpired during the three-debate series was the difference in former Senator Bob Dole's style between the first and third events. The first debate, held October 6th was recognized for its gentlemanly and issue-oriented banter between the two candidates for President. A similar colle giality was clearly evident during the debate between the candidates for Vice President. The same could not be said for debate number three, a town hall meeting where citizens asked questions of the can didates. Students of politics remember Bob Dole's "Republican hatchet man" perfor mance of 1976, while Gerald Ford's running mate. That was the year that Dole earned his reputation as a mean-spirited grump. Those who do not remember 1976 saw a similar act during the second presi dential debate on October 16. Dole's performance was not at all un expected, as he had been peppering up his recent campaign stop events with talk of the "ethical erosion in the White House." All week, Dole had been letting his sup porters know that he would take a hard line against President Clinton during the debate. Dole may have been pumped up somewhat by the favorable reaction re ceived from the crowd at the mention of such talk. After having witnessed as serious a discussion of current events as a presiden tial debate will allow (October 6), interested Americans could not be blamed for expecting the same from the last event. What they saw was a seemingly never-ending stream of accusations and rhetoric launched at the incumbent President. Clinton's strategy of "staying presidential" led him to allow the direc tives to go unanswered, at one point commenting "no attack ever created a job (or) .educated a child". The result was the two candidates being on separate top ics throughout the evening, creating an atmosphere in which no viewer could have made any decisions as to who has the right answers for the future. An interesting side to the debates was Vice-President AI Gore. As many know, Gore often comes across as wooden and lifeless during public speaking events. Gore was judged the winner of his debate with Jack Kemp by five of six debate coaches who scored the event. Further, in a CNN poll of 809 registered voters, Gore was voted to be more worthy of thevice presidency than his opponent by a nearly two to one margin. To the chagrin of many, third and fourth party candidates such as Reform Party candidate Ross Perot and Libertarian Harry Browne were not in vited to debate. The debate commission that made this recommendation to the Clinton and Dole campaigns cited "lack of election viability" as the reason to bar other candidates from the series of de bates. As is becoming commonplace in re cent election years, the presidential debates offered little insight to the plans of either candidate. Rather, the viewing public was treated to ninetyminute cam paign commercials, full of rhetoric and sound-bites. 0 0 0 BuRNs CouRT CiNEMA 5 506 Bt.;R:\S LA:-..E.

6 The Catalyst Opinions October 22, 1996 IRISH PUB CULTURE IN LONDON. Contributed by Rocky Swift Working in a British pub has afforded me the opportunity to be flustered and confused by weird accents from people of many different cultures. I work part time in the Coach Stop, an average pub in Finchley, a suburb of London. It is patro nised by a very diverse crowd: English, Scottish, Cockneys, Kenyans, Americans; and most troublesome, the Irish. The Coach Stop has two bars that serve the front and rear of the building. The front bar is known unofficially as the "Paddy Bar" where all of the old Irish farts sit around all day drinking Guinness and watching soccer and horse racing. The Paddies are hard enough to under stand behind their really thick accents, but throw on the effects of four to nine pints of Guinness, and they become about as I cringed every time I opened my mouth, because everything I cold think of to say was hopelessly whitebread. I have a lot of different bloodlines in my mongrel American ancestry; but be cause of my red-hair and freckles, it is the Irish in me that's most obvious. But any sort of real connection I have with Irish culture ended a hundred years ago when my grandmother's parents came over in the boat. As a result, I've never pre tended to be Irish (although 40 million Americans do while only eight million people inhabit the island of Ireland), be cause that kind of ethnic orientation, especially from someone as completely American as I, is pretty silly. But why would anyone want to iden tify with the Irish? No other race has been so determinably isolationist, racist, intelligible as Charlie Brown's schoolteacher.

I soon found tomer accompanied by my landlord's myself wanting to befriend some of them. 15-year-old daughter, who by the way, free books! never gets carded at bars. I saw Pat in the Paddy bar, and he called me over to speak with him. He bought me a Guiness (a principle rite of comradeship among the Paddies) and introduced me to Shamus, a very drunk old man who was lacking shoes that evening for some ungodly rea son, and PJ, who told a couple dirty jokes which I didn't totally understand but laughed heartily at anyway. "What are we gonna do wit' this Yank?" Pat asked PJ rhetorically as be gave me a wink, "Aye, look at his head, there's a Paddy in 'em." I treated Pat to a Guinness, and it was then that I stopped feeling like an outsider. I've always felt a little left out of all the symposiums, conferences, "libera tions," and all the rest of the cloistered, often pretentious gatherings at New College of folk who have been marginal ized in one way or another. I guess I'm pretty much the archetype of the power structure that for the past jillion years has had a virtual monopoly on genocide, ex tinction, pollution, racism, sexism and general bad manners. Oh well, such is life. But there in the Coach Stop, drinking Guinness with the Paddies, I was with mx people, god dammit: the white trash of Europe. Not so different really from the white trash of Georgia, or anywhere else for that matter.

October 22, 1996 7 LETTER TO THE EDITOR: A RESPONSE TO THE "MINORITY" POTLUCK There's been a lot of debate recently about the need for "minority" students to reach out and tell "the rest of us" what "it's" like. People are especially having a hard time reconciling the idea of a "non white" only potluck dinner. I have to dissent, because I think separatist activity can be a good thing, especially for groups that have been hit by oppression, repression, subjugation, etc. It can help them/us define goals, conduct consciou ne s-raising exercises, and so on. On the other hand, I would ask the or ganizers of the potluck to consider the need for a public version of this. In a place such as New College, where atti tudes tend to be more or less tolerant and open, is it really essential to have such an exclusionary evening? I'm genuinely asking. If so, please respond emphatically. I don't know what it's like. I will end with a question for both sides of the fence: What do you want from a politically social event? Do you see it as a chance to network with others interested in similar goals? Or do you see it as a chance to bond with those whose experience is distinctly similar to your own? It seems as though the two sides have different objectives, and from there the debate just gets embroiled in language and the way thought is transferred into ac tion. Bottom line: I support the concept of the potluck, but it seems as though it's doing more harm than good. Eric Piotrowski 11f) 1 .. 1 J .. f)f) 10/8/96 10:43 p.m. Off campus noise complaint.
