Volume VII, Issue 24 New College honors Wilkinson's service by Sara Foley Carol Ann Wilkinson is the New CoJJege Alumni Association-just ask anyone who has worked with her in the past twelve years. As Debbie Ezzell, Business Manager of the New College Foundation says, "There was no alumni associ ation before Carol Ann." Fonner president of the Alumni Association Mary Ruiz called Wilkinson "The beginning and lifeblood of this or ganization." After many years of dedicated service, Wilkinson will "Irrep laceable .. was the word used many times to describe Wilkinson at a reception held in her honor on April 18. Current president of the Alumni Association, Alexis Simendinger, said, "she's a whole human being" and lauded Wilkinson for her seren ity, good management, and patience. Director of Special Project Development Jim Feeney also praised the work of Wilkinson and the Alumni Association. "Clearly it is amazing what the Alumni have done for this college. It's a differ ent kind of place, it's a better kind of place-Carol Ann has been the heart of that." Wilkinson would rather talk about the theAlumni Association than about herself. To hear her tell it, she's just a part time employee who organizes fund-raising events, and the general running of the of fice. But the accomplishments of the association belie this modest selfdescription. "She does everything," says Ezzell, "She is a one person office; good at everything she does and she has the patience of Job." Among the Jist of things that Wilkinson pro duces for the association for are New College t-shirts, reunions, inINSIDE Ivory Towers ............ 2 Victim's Advocate ....... .3 1\vister .... . ... .4 The Big One ........... .5 Does anybody out there like us? April 28, B-dorm: the fight for identity and survival 1998 by Hugh R. "Hugo" Brown The Western world's pop culture is a consumer culture. For your product or idea to be sold, its pro moters have to be obtrusive: scream, dazzle with co.lorful ads, make infomercials. At New College thmgs are no different. Our walls are covered with signs advertising dozens of speeches, symposia, and act i vism. Active minded students even march to your doorstep. On the 13th April a group of New College students marchmg through the Pei complex did just that, liter ally spouting their assertiveness. Their proclamat i ons of self-identity flowed from their hearts and from the nozzles of cans of shaving cream. In the most visible activity of B-dorrn pride week, a group of B-dormers marched through and playfully sacked the Pei com verses of pride, banging pots and pans, squtrtmg some water guns, and placing large shaving cream "B 's" on the brick walls. Among the marchers was even a bee-suited "Queen B." Played by NC admissions: n by Alisdair Lee Director of Admissions Killion collapses over her desk and makes an anguished noise. It's a gesture in the pirit of comedy, but Killion assured this reporter that the situation is serious. Admissions numbers from this time last year posed a much better picture about the entering class than current fig ures. Due to several factors, including the recent termination of the Money Guide Best College Buys publication, the entering class at New College will be much sma11er than expected. The school's expectations for population enlarge ment are currently on hold. Rumors have spread. Killion quotes one concerned community member, "Are we going to have any men in the entering class?" "As you know," Killion explains, "[Interim Dean] Doug Langston hoped that we could enroll an enter ing class of 200 since additional faculty lines are given to the college based on enrollment." The numbers tell the story: at this time last year, 117 male stu dents were admitted from 217 applications. Presently, 74 male stu dents have been admitted from 111 applications. Surprisingly, numbers for accepted female students have remained relatively consistent: 168 accepted last year from 304 applica tions, 164 this year from 259 applications. Regarding out-of-state applications, there's been a drastic drop among applications and admis sions of both sexes. For females the numbers have gone down from 285 out-of-state applications to 183. For males the numbers have gone down from 236 out-of-state applications to 187. Killion predicts that 312 students will gain admission this year com pared to last year's 353. The entering class usually amounts to about half of those admitted. That means that next year's entering class could be as small as 160 stu dents. Compare that with last year's 181, or the year before, which had 187 entering students. The figures have thrown Killion and the Office of Admissions for a loop. While many have been quick to attribute the drop to the termina tion of the Money Guide magazine, "The State of Admissions at New CoJlege, February 1998" reports that "Money Guide is only part of the picture." The report points to such trends as "fewer full-time residential stu dents in the market place;" "low growth of core population: academi cally sophisticated, white upper-middle class suburbanites;" "unrestrained, well-funded competi tion from within the Florida public sector of 'honors' students;" and "declining status of faculty, increas ingly pictured as pampered elites who cannot be fired for incompe tence, avoiding teaching, and are enemies of traditional culture." Noting that "New College has a clear, positive image both as a highly selective, 'honors' college, and as a viable and stable 'alterna tive' (progressive, socially tolerant, innovative) college," Admissions has come up with a game plan for rectifying the problem. It isn't going to be easy. The new "recruitment/enroll ment" plan calls first for an upgrade in personnel at the Admissions Office, including the restoration of an associate director position that is currently non-existent. Says the re port, "Personnel requirements are a top priority. Currently, all


2 The Catalyst International Executions begin in Rwanda The Rwandan government executed in public on Friday 22 convicts who were found guilty of genocide. The executions by firing squ a d took place at provincial towns where major massacres took place in 1994. Hutu extremists killed an es timated 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus over a period of three months. Rwandan jails are packed with about 130,000 prisoners awaiting trial for genocide, most of whom are Hutus. More than l 00 people, including two Roman Catholic priests, have been sentenced to death since trials started in December 1996. Pope John Paul II appealed for clemency, and the U.S. asked for a stay of executions until all appeals had been exhausted. Canada meets Cuba; U.S. pissed Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien met with Cuban leader Fidel Castro last Saturday, a move that defies the United States policy of diplomatic isolation for the communist nation. U.S. government officials stopped short of criti cizing the meeting, however. Canada and Mexico are the onJy two countries in the Americas to have retained relations with Cuba since its com munist revolution in 1959. Comfort women compensated A Japanese court ruled on Monday April 27 that \d on to three South Korean "Comfort Women w ho we r e forced to provide sex to Japanese soldiers during World War II. Under the terms of the ruling, the Japanese government must pay the women resti tution to the amount of 300,000 yen ($2,272). The judgment comes one week after the Seoul government announced its decision to compen sate each South Korean Comfort Woman with 38 million won ($27, 900). A majority of the mated 200,000 women who were forced into prostitution for the Japanese army were Korean. National MOMA may get $65 Million New York City Mayor Rudolph W.

Rat brains dissected in space Last Friday the Space Shuttle Columbia brought 170 mice and rats into orbit. They are part of a series of experiments that will help us OUTSIDE 1a---1voeRY lOWER understand how the body reacts to and adapts to weightlessness. The brains of 47 rodents will be dissected and preserved for further analysis on Earth. The dissections are being performed in a sealed chamber, that has glove-like attachments for the scientists to manipulate specimens and in struments. The dissections are a two-person job. The rationale for dissecting-out and preserving as they are, in weightless environment. Other specimens carried aboard the N e urolab were snails, swordtail fish, oyster toadfish, and crick ets. Many of these specimens are to be dissected after landing. The crew of the Shuttle were also subjects in some experiments. Melee at Minnesota Neo-Nazi rally A Neo-Nazi rally met with violent protesters last Saturday in St. Paul, Minnesota. The group of protesters, who call themselves the Anti-Racist Action surrounded the Neo-Nazis, spat, and cast stones at the rallyers. The automobile of one of the Neo-Nazi organizers was also vandalized.

Consumer Affairs Commissioner Jules Polonetsky proudly dubbed the operation as "Summer Smoke Out." Well, looks like all the teens in the City will be "smoking out" this summer in one way or another. Pupil kills teacher at school dance A student at Parker Middle School in Edinboro, PA opened fire with .25 caliber pistol at a school dance last Friday, killing one and wounding three others. Andrew Wurst, 14, went to the eighth grade graduation dance at an Edinboro banquet hall where he shot and killed a chaperone John Gillette, 48, a teacher and coun selor at the boy's school.

The Catalyst News April 28, 1998 3 Parkview House's new victim advocate: Ruth Perz by KC McCarthy Many members of our college community may not be aware of all the programs offered by the Counseling and Wellness Center at Parkview House. Among the many health oriented pro grams offered is the Victim's Advocate, a post which has been recently filled by Ruth Perz, from the Sarasota County Sheriff's Department. The Victim Advocacy program i available to all students, faculty and staff of New Co1Jege/USF who are victims of actual or threatened violence including assault, battery, domestic violence, in decent exposure, sexual battery, sexual harassment, stalking, and various other kinds of traumatic situations, including suicide preven tion, Baker Acts, car accidents, death notifications, and assistance after natural disas ters. Ruth Perz has been working with Sarasota County Sheriff's Department for ten years. She spent her first eight years on the road as a public service aid, and has been a victim advocate for two years now. She has gone through extensive training, which all advocates go through periodi cally to be updated on new laws, skills, and techniques; but she stressed that she is not a counselor. A victim advocate provides support, guidance, and information in the form of crisis intervention, emergency shelter, medical help and counseling referrals and any other assistance vitations to t:Vents, and announcements. is also in charge of fund raising events, such as annual PhoneAThon and handles the graph1c design, layout, and overall of the Nimbus the Alumni AssoctatJon s newsletter. "I'm' going to cry for a month after she's gone," Ezzell said. Most of the people who work with her are in awe of her competence and hard work. "She's a part-time employee, but the she puts in ... she just gives. She stays unt1l1t gets done." When Wilkinson was first offered the JOb m 1986, she said "NO." She was already busy. playing the organ at her church, had a part tlme job at the Foundation, and also had two small daughters to care for. being pressed, she agreed to come for the and upon ac ceptance, decided to take the JOb all. Wilkinson's office was near the mustc room 1n College Hall. One of her first tasks was to as semble a database of New College alumns from a mailing list of names and addresses. also took charge of the Nimbus, the Alumm Association's newsletter. "I got a crash course in newsletters," Wilkinson said of the Nimbus. The Alumni Association was a scattered group of alumns before was hired as Executive Director. But 1t has more than doubled its size since Wilkinson was hired, to include over 2760 members.The budget for the first year was $21,000; net assets were one computer and one printer. Now the Alumni AssociatiOn boasts net earnings of $750, 000 The money sponsors : student grants, the alumni fellows program, and .. needed. Perz commented that she is "there to an swer questions and get them through the first step," clarifying what options the person has and finally help them decide what they hould do next. "I try not to be pushy," said Perz. She under stands that these are difficult and extremely stressful situations for anyone to be placed in, and fear often keeps people from calling. If there is any question in your mind of whether you want to call, she encourages you to go ahead and do it. "Not that I have a11 the answers, but I may have the one you're looking for," stated Perz with a soothing smile. ''I'm happy to talk to any one about anything." Ironically, the instances people often need the most help with, are also the ones they don't ever want to share for many reasons. Rest assured, all information shared with the advocate is confiden tial, and will not be disclosed without explicit permission from the person involved. Of course, police reports are encouraged, but are by no means a requirement to receive assistance. Ruth stressed several times that in criminal cases, es pecially those involving rape or assault, it is very important that someone be called in to help pre pare the victim for what will happen next, or simply offer a calm and supportive helping-hand. "I'm open to do whatever they need to have done," said Perz. Sometimes she calls family members, makes to-do-lists for the victim, or simply makes some coffee. Often advocates act as a liaison between the victim or family and de tectives, as the advocates can sometimes be reached more easily. Ruth admits that "some times you don't really feel you're really reaching people,'' and sometimes victims just need some one to hold out their hand and listen, they really appreciate her simply being present. Still, she as serted that in a traumatic situation "for the most part, there is a bond that takes place and helps them get through that time." "I'm used to dealing with just about every thing that comes down the pike," Perz remarked with the distinct air of experience. The number one call the advocacy program receives at the sheriff's department is responding for families of suicide victims; by no means a situation that any one would want to face alone. "I walk into the middle of people1s nightmare," stated Perz. Ruth admits that hers is an emotionally trying and extremely stressful job. "It's very draining often having to work with someone who has such intense grief, but its also very rewarding." Ruth Perz is available 24 hours a day, and can be reached by dialing her pager at 252-5156 and following the irlstructions. If you desperately need help and guidance, don't worry about dis turbing her; she promises not to mind. alun1.n office incoming students, last Natural Sciences division, the Karen VoUanan poetry workshop.

4 The Catalyst Campus News April 28, 1998 New Twister ride stirs up excitement at Universal Studios by KC McCarthy The newest attraction at Universal Studios Florida is Twister. Ride It Out, a virtual natural disaster featuring a man-made tornado. It will be offi cially opening on May 4, 1998. Currently, the attraction inspired by the motion picture hit Twister, is in technical rehearsal. The park insists that the rehearsals are standard and necessary to a1low a new attraction to be operationally cycled with full audiences prior to opening. It leaves you with an eerie feeling in your stomach to realize that this highly technical ride may still have some bugs in it, but that nau sea is soon overcome by the excitement of being one of the first people to ever experience the attraction. This feeling of uneasiness is compounded by the knowledge that less than two months ago massive tornadoes hit no more than a few miles away, and this restlessness lingers in the back of your mind as you watch amateur footage of real tornadoes on the monitors mounted on the ceiling above where you anxiously wait in line. disaster. Before the twister materializes out of the sky on the small-scale model of the drive-in scene from the movie Twister, you watch it mate rialize on the distant horizon. The winds become incredibly strong and loud, as rain pelts you through the glass which has shattered directly be hind you. Lightening crashes all around, and as the twister approaches, you begin to hope that the term technical rehearsal was just a joke. Of course, the cow which floats past you on extremely obvious wires lightens the mood, but not before your face receives the heat from a blast of fire when a gas line blows. The attraction offers a very enriching learning experience, as well as being a lot of fun and a nice refreshing shower on a hot day in the sun. As Universal is a movie theme park, you are greeted by the stars Twister. Ride It Ouf' was originally scheduled to be open on April 2, 1998, but the park chose to put it on hold in February out of respect for their neighbors in the community who suffered the effects of the devastat ing tornadoes that hit central Florida in mid-March. The park's pre-opening marketing campaign was also tactfully postponed Universal Studios Florida has also contributed $100,000 to the Red Cross of Central Florida to directly assist those victims of tornadoes, and every guest has the oppor tunity to make a donation to the Red Cross and take home a weather-safety pamphlet. After watching the films and experiencing a fake tornado, it seems like a very good idea to pick one up before you leave. of the film Twister when you reach the initial room of your twister experi ence. What you view is a dramatic film that combines elements of how the movie was made and explanations of the utter destruction that a real tor nado inflicts. Once you and a rather large group of fellow park-goers enter the actual set where a man-made F2 tornado will rip through the stage, you realize that the stage is very close. Admittedly, the actual twister resembles a large, swirling cloud of dry-ice smoke, and will not strike fear in the hearts of most adults. The real drama, and even a small touch of anxiety, comes from the other realistic effects that accompany the artificial natural B-dormers battle against Pei-centricity Caroline LeFleur. a second-year, the Queen Bled t e marc ers in c ants o pri e. "We Jove B-dorm, yes we do. We Jove Bdorm how 'bout you?" chanted the B-dorm raiding party. Marchers even wore B-dorm pride shirts, adorned with such slogans as, "Pei puede besar el culito gordo de B-dorm!" Julian Frasier, a B-dorm resident who was involved in making the shirts wrote that the slogan translates to "Pei can kiss my big fat B-dorm ass!" In an act of responsibility, B-dorm RA Lex Thompson and first-year resident Kristi Leach went back to Pei to clean up the shaving cream 0 forming and Thompson and Leach were Saran Wrapped to a tree. The march of B-dorm residents is a an nual show of solidarity. Kevin Unrath, a fourth-year B-dorm resident, noted that the parading in Pei had been done for years, but that the raid was a new addition to the tradition. When asked if the raid on Pei was done Pei guerrillas viciously Saran-wrapped B dorm bikes. Can't we all just get along? with any malice, Unrath simply said, ''We did it for fun." He also assures that, "it wasn't an ag gressive act," and that it was a statement "against Pei-centric attitude." From this testimony, it seems like the resi dents of B-dorm merely wished to prevent themselves from being marginalized, with respect to this campus' socio-geographic structure. The actual events of the raid, and the response from Pei, seem to be less benign. "The original intent was to put up 'B's' every where ... squirt a few people with water guns," explains Matt Varnon, a fourth-year B-dorm resi dent. However, the situation quickly escalated. Varnon explained that water balloons and shav ing cream was brought to Pei, intended for use against Pe1 defenders. Pool noodles, which were supposed to be used as hobby horses, eventually were used to hit people. Pei defenders, such as Mike Palmieri and Brian Stewart brought a gar den hose into the picture. Thompson explained that they were incarcer ated until the Pei avengers left, after that, "it was easy enough to get out [of the Saran Wrap]." A signed posted in Pei following B-dorm's raid lamented, ... a day which will live in infamy, the Pei dorms were deliberately and maliciously attacked by the water gun-toting forces of the Empire of B-Dorm." That night a group of Pei residents headed to B-dorm, armed with water guns, toilet paper and more Saran Wrap. Varnon thought that the Pei counter-strike harbored a vindictiveness that the B-dorm raid did not. He attributed this to the late hour at which Pei struck (about 1:17 a.m., ac cording toT. Jay Brown, a third-year B-dorm resident), and the acts of vengeance committed by the Pei warriors who hurled butter and made f J coptous use o water guns. In a joint interview, two Pei residents in volved in the counterattack give their rationale. Michael Palmieri and Brian Stewart explain that they were "pissed off at them [B-dorm] com ing and attacking our home." Stewart then said that about 10 Pei residents Palm Court at about 1 :00 a.m They encountered Thompson and Leach, incarcerated them, and proceeded to repay B-dorm's raid, in kind. B-dorm was not unprepared for the counterat tack. "The Pei-coats are coming, the Pei-coats are coming. To arms! To arms!" Brown alerted. Brown recalls, "When it wa all over, Pei went limping back from their failed insurrec tion, a stunned shadow of their former selves." Whereas the B-dorm strike seemed to be a whole-community event for B-dorm, the counterattack seemed to be done by a rogue squad. The apparent hatred toward B-dorrn may not necessarily reflect views of the Pei community, at large. "I don't think there was any war at all," said Lex Thompson. ''Thi was a show of pride with a minor retribution. Then everything stopped." Has everything stopped? The residents of B dorm have historically felt the need to parade themselves in front of Pei. The i sues of isola tion, marginalization, and awareness of all residence hall residents may not have yet been settled. When the Dort facility becomes a dorm com munity in its own right, these issues of respect and recognition should be resolved. Better to put notions of marginalization and isolation on the negotiating table now. All Novo Collegians should know that dorm communities exist in geo graphic diversity. Viking, B-dorm and Dort are not like satellites to Pei. Rather, they are stable mates. Each dorm has its struggles. It is time to forget about trying asserting superiority, crying "imperialist oppression," or deciding who is bet ter, or whom should be martyred.


The Catalyst Entertainment Corporate America quakes in The Big One by Matthew Grieco "It's him." The CEO draws the window shade, steps away and paces behind his desk. He knows that he's sur rounded. His secretary's voice crackles over the intercom. "Sir, there's a Mr. Michael Moore here to see you. What should I tell him?" "Get him out of here. Be polite, but firm. Call the police if you have to. Under no circumstances accept any gifts or answer any ques tions." If Michael Moore could hide cameras in executive offices before he visited them, you can be sure that exchanges such as the above would have been part of the show in Moore's latest documentary adven ture in his crusade against corporate evil, The Big One. Moore became famous in 1989 with his first major film, Roger and Me, in which he tr ied to track down Roger Smith, CEO o f G e neral Motors, a nd a s k hi m to explain why Smi th wa s closing factories in Flint, M ichigan despite the company's tremendous financial success. In The Big One, Moore takes the shottraveling around the country on a 57-city book tour, and d ro p ping in on neighborhood execs in each city along the way. "Nobody knows about this film," he whispers to the camera as the crew climbs off the plane in St. Louis. Moore spends a lot of time trying to evade the various "media escorts" whom Random House has sent to guide (and guard) him on his book tour. The film alternates be tween scenes of Moore speaking to audiences at book signings, and doing that for which he's known best: invading offices with a cam eraman at his side who can't be daunted into turning the camera off even when the handcuffs come out. Followers of Moore can't help but crack a grin of anticipation each time he walks through the sliding glass doors into another executive building, knowing that soon the guards and assistants will emerge from the woodwork, and ask him to leave. At each stop he keeps push ing until he realizes he's reached the highest authority figure he's going to reach, and he asks the question. The same question he asked Roger Smith, and the same question he asks everyone: Why? Why are you laying people off when business is booming? Why don't you feel any loyalty to the citizens of a town which has provided you with labor for half a century? Why are you moving to Mexico? Why do you pay Indonesian girls forty cents an hour to make sneakers, while col laborating with the same government that kills the people of East Timor? Why don't you think your actions are tantamount to genocide? It has been said that comedy is If so, Michael Moore knows just how to come r a nd d isco mfi t p e opl e until they give themselves away by saying more absurd and blackly comic things than anything Moore could possibly have scripted. He asks a PayDay (i.e., the candy bar) executive why the plant he's visit ing has to close. Because, says the executive, the plant has been ex tremely productive, the company's doing well, and it's time to downsize. "You mean," says Moore, "that if the workers hadn't done as well there would still be a plant here?" "That's true," replies the execu tive. Absurd exchanges such as these are all in a day's work for Moore, who also ponders questions such as: Why doesn't Steve Forbes ever blink? If what's good for business is good for America, why doesn't GM sell crack? ("Because the CIA's got the market cornered!" shouts someone from the audience.) Why does TWA employ prisoners as ticket booking agents? And why, oh why, does Pillsbury need eleven million dollars in corporate welfare to promote it already famous Doughboy in third world nations? Moore knows what response to expect from those he visits, but his success and charm are due in large part to the image of naive friendli ness he projects, and the calm, reasonable manner in which he makes his requests. When Philip Knight, CEO of Nike, actually wel comes Moore into his office (the first major CEO in Moore's career to do so), Moore is genuinely happy to meet him, and is also genuinely pleased when Knight agrees to match Moore's $10,000 contribution Moore is a sometimes hilarious, s om e tim es angering a ctivist -journal ist whose e n terprises n ever fail t o remind us of how effective a camera and a loud, querulous voice can be in inspiring dread in those who would rather keep their actions hid den from public view.

Both statements reveal a lack campus diver ity among tudents of knowledge about the history of and faculty, and undercut the western fear and hatred towards claims to "community" which are people of the Islamic faith (what so prevalent in other Catalyst artiother religious group would have cles. I want to urge the writers and been the subject of such an attack editors of The Catalyst to remember ithout any repercus ions except a that their publication repre ent our small letter to the editor?), and campus to a larger community, not .bout the history of oppression and only through local circulation, but abuse of the Irish as a race. (If anyon the Web, and that a poor attempt one doubts that the Irish were at humor can do real dama e when regarded a an inferior race for a it relie upon targeting any group as long period of hi tory in this counworthy of our scorn. I am ure that try as well as in England, do some you will rectify this situation. research in the library. You might Regards, start with How the Irish Became Miriam L. Wallace White.) Assistant Professor, British and The reason that these otherwise American Literature Editors not worth it As a peripheral member of the New College community, I read the Catalyst fairly regularly. I was ap palled to see, several is ues ago, a flippant and anti-Mu lim reference to the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Tht kind of ignorant raci t remark has no place in a pub lication ostensibly aimed at an entire community, especially one ba ed upon the concept of educa tion. I had hoped that enough other people, more clo ely connected with Nev. College than I, would complain about thi offensive "new item," and that the newspaper would con ider its content more carefully in the future. I was more di gusted, therefore, to read in the April 14 (Volume VII, Issue 22) issue's masthead that the position at your paper of Matt Grieco is he "Hates the Iri h." Do you think this is funny? This is bla tant, unadulterated hate speech. Your newspaper is published in print and accessible on the World Wide Web -if this is some sort of inside joke (and I am being gener ous in hoping that this is the case), it does not belong in a published pe riodical. According to your rna thead The Catalyst is a pon ored academic tutorial which is funded by the New College Student Alliance. To ee these bigoted tatement dissemi nated by your paper ickens me; I can only hope that others who are more central to New College feel similarly repul ed and make their feelings known to you. You owe a sincere and deliberate apology to all your readers. You also hould re consider your po ition as editor if you do not accept that appoint ment's re ponsibility with the gravity it deserves. Sincerely, Ron Silver The letters submitted this week from Miriam Wallace and Ron Silver address a difficult issue that The Catalyst has been wre tling with for some time. That is, how can we re ponsibly present campus news, event contribution and opinions while also offering an edgy, entertaining product that peaks to our educated, sharp-witted audience? In the four years that The Catalyst has run at New College, ense of humor of the campu as a whole. If religion is an untouchable sub-ject for humor at New College, what explanation exists for the "Darwin-fish" bumper tickers that adorn the cars of many Novo Collegians? As for the degradation of the Irish "race," every time editor Rocky Swift look in the mirror, he finds it the peak of irony that the greatest infamy that he ha achieved at New College is that of a defamer we have often had to combat against the reputation of being a of the Iri h. He feels in good company, however, a he is not tired, boring tool-of-the MA When competing against les structured, more expositional cam pus publications for tudent intere, t (and funding), The Catalyst has often been les appreciated than the "Residence Life Bulletin." On the basis of informal, word of-mouth estimates, The Catalyst has received more complements thi emester than ever before, mainly due to our increased dedication to humor. On the other hand, we have received more di approving letters lately than at any point since our be innin So what should we do? Most, if not all, of the jokes made in The Catalyst are written by the editors and are used to filJ in un used spaces after the whole issue has been laid out. The jokes are written in such an absurdist fashion that the editors felt it impossible that anyone could take them seri ously. The editors overe timated the the first Swift to write bla phe mous things about the denizen of the Emerald Isle .. The editor never intended to hurt anyone's feel ings, as none of their attempts at humor were ever directed at pe cific individuals nor were they intended to cruelly demean any groups. The editors offer an apology to the parties who may have been offended by The Catalyst's attempts to appease the entertainment need of the campus, and they a k for the community to contribute more of their ideas and submission so that the humor resented in the newsl?a per is more representative of the whole campus. In regard to Mr. Silver's letter, the editors have reconsidered the gravity of their positions and will not be returning to their posts after this semester. Thanks for the heads up. We've been bad ... really, really bad. Henderson not worth it To the New College Community: Last Wednesday I attended the talk of Hazel Henderson, "global futurist" and "alternative econo-mi t", hoping to learn omething about global environmental affairs. I was greatly disappointed. Her talk consi ted primarily of self-congrat ulatory tidbit and unsubstantiated assertions devoid of any analytical ub tance. The re t of the talk was devoted to what I can only charactenze as a mean-spirited attack on economists. This was puzzling, given that economi ts have long been in the forefront of the fight for environmental protection. The fact that Ms. Henderson was unaware of this should not be surprising, I guess since her grossly misleading caricatures and numerous incorrect statements regarding economics in dicated an embarrassing lack of understanding of even the most basic economic principles. As a profe. ional economist, I was dis mayed to hear such unwarranted attacks. As a professional educator, however, I was even more disturbed to see ignorance passed off as knowledge, all in the name of "en vironmental education". But perhaps some redeeming educa tional value can be had from her talk. I urge any member of the cam pus community who is intere ted in a case tudy of what doe NOT constitute serious intellectual in quiry and ound policy analysis to view a videotape of her talk, avail able from the Environmental Studies Program. That will be an educational experience with a few good laughs to boot. Richard D. Coe Associate Professor of Economics
