s 0 .c: e. THE NEW tttUttt F.\ft:I.T\' FOtt,t ,s, .. : '?I. E v.v By Dan Chamb hss COLLEGE Last Wednesday saw a flurry of activity on the New College campw. To the intrepid newsmen of the Organ staff, though, even the trauma of the draft lottery and the excitetuent and fes tivity of Groundhog Day were overshadowed by the drama of RGAN $$$$$$ the monthly faculty meeting, Dr. Elmendorf opened the meeting at 3:35. Announcements were made as follows: ---By Dr. Riley, about the fhilosophy Conference February 14-15 at USF, which will feature Marxist Herbert Marcuse. Signs are posted in Hamilton Center. ----By Mark Calkins, resident counselor, about the Renaissance Fair to be held Feb. 26-27. Student assistance is welcome; those interested should contact Mark. ----Dr. Deme introduced Dr. fhilip Bandt, the new Assistant Adjtmct Professor of Psychology. Mr. Lyons, Acting Provost, to the effect that there will _,-::,.;.u-'1'\..t,t .1..::12 I 2 be a summer school. ----By Dr. Elmendorf, that the Ford Grant challel}.ge would probably be met (it was; see article). At the conclusion of the annotmcements, Dr. Deme asked about the prospect of retroactive pay increases for the faculty, saying, "It is authorised. No discussion ensued. Sheila Roher, representing the SEC, that the facul t' s the Actuarial Value'' SEC ty send representatives to the student governmg Roher wasn't sure if the faculty member would have lr1vlleges. When Dr. Elmendorf queried, "Does anybody think 1t sa good idea?" everyone smiled. During a press conference held yes terday at 12:45 in South Hall, trustees Ted Sperling and A. Werk Cook joined with trustee chairman Dallas Dort in announcing that Development had done its job. That job being, of course, scraping up a cool million in order to earn an extra quartermillion from the Ford Foundation. Important points covered by the three trustees ranged from how hard the struggle was (Development came up with 1200,000 in the last month) to where the money came from: two students donated their salaries as student residents; the proceeds from Colloquim '72 were donated; 87% of those alumni contacted by Develop ment contributed; along with the usual types of contributions. Much vas made of the alunmi contribution, Mr. Cook stating that that was something of a record for American Universities. Flash bulbs lit the room as the t; tr ees 9 t.h n rc.>!rl President Elmendorf, raised a banner symbolizing--according to them--success in the future years. Attending the conference were reporters from local papers along with college administrators, functionaries, and students Efforts on Environmental Studies Program While pictures wera being taken at the conference, this reporter had the opportunity to talk with Bob Norwine, Vice-President of Development. When questioned as to whether or not money received for the nevly conceived environmental program was counted irt the Ford effort, Norvine said that the 1!111all amount (11couple of thousand") vas included. Shortly after the conference, this reporter also had the opportunity to speak to Dr. Elmendorf on the same subject. He was about the chances of success of the program; he also mentioned the possibilities of gaining 1\ev faculty through the program. N.A.M. The New College chapter of NAM held :tts first Thursday night. It was mainly a brainstoreing session aimed at coming up with proposals for action for this group at New College.
