Editorials, Letters, Etc. 3 Dear Sir: Hog Parlor On Wednesday night, Reli>en Kleimen delivered a speech on neutrcc !tars and gravitational collapse. The talk was excellently delivered, and it was apparent that Reuben had put a lot of time Jnto preparing it. Student response was favOl'able, but among the shining faces, not one belonged to a faculty member. Not one. Whether they had other comulitments, or really didn't give a spit, I don't know. Some of them were in the building, and I1ve watched them sit dutifully through some of the most boring "official" presentations that have ever gone an In this place, but none of them showed llp to hear a students work. This week's Organ has been a difficult one to put together, to say the ver,r least. Our editor-in-chief, "Great Caesar's Ghost" Middlellall, is in Cklahou, recovering froa an attack .ade upon his person by a fatted calf (see the stor,"), and we are thus left leaderless. Because of this no weighty, heavy statement will be made in thia week 1 s Grunts From 'lbe Hog Parlor thia ia David's job, to do it and have it turn out better. Great .. ounts of violence would follow, and we're tired. Thia vas to be, and is, the special Homecoming Issue, and because of this the Organ is filled with goodies: the Hoaecolling Queen, *he interview vith Head Coach Buck Walters, etc. We honestly hope that these absurdities are enjoyed by aoaeone at New Collese. We honestly hope that someone at N'ew Collep reads the Organ. But a recent piace of neva has taken Nat. Sci. has always been fairly close knit, so this must be a real Jroof af the changes N.c. is going through in its old age. How many professors are ever an campus after six o'clock? (Several years ago professors used to come out to have dinner, sit arotm.d and chew the fat). When was the last time you ate lunch with a professor? How many seminars do you attend that bear every mark af being a "class"? How often do you have to make an appointment, rather than dropping by to see someone? Somehow I get the feeling that this is not what New College is supposed to be all about. But what can the rich radical, hedonistic Diggers ct N.C. do? Impotent we wallow in our mentai masturbation. Does anyone know how to abolish tenure? (The first goal af all bureaucracies is self-preservation). First year students, if you have a chance split before you get old and cynical, but for the upper classes (see next we'll have freshman rush week) that are stuck J you have auy suggestions, for God's sake let me The incident with Reuben is just one small occurence but muld:ply it by how often lt happens, and N.c. is no longer a Joke but a tragedy.

SAJ: "Coach Walters, to what do you at tribute your great success as a coach here at New College?" DBW: "Well, SteYe, I think the most important part of any football team is the players. We get boys each year with real dedication to the game, boys who want to win, and know that to win during the season you haYe to work in practice.

How do we continue to get such top-notch players year after year1" DBW: "Well, Jake, I think it's because of our great recruiting progru." SAJ: ''Could you describe how your recruit -ing works?" DBW: "Well, the first thing, of course, is to decide which boys we want. Our scouts, many of whom are just watchful. alumni, keep an eye out for the outstan ding high school football playerl"' in the country. Then we se1ect the beat of these the a o t our great teams in the pa8t, about our programs for the future, about the glor,r and prel"'tige of New College Football, about the personal atteDtion each player receives.

Thus, chapters can be built around activities in the workplace, community, on campus, or around special interests (suah as health care and rent struggles) and partake in many different pl'Og}'ams. Nonetheless, NAM is not to become the new s. D. S, Inasmuch as it will en campus, it will neither organize students solely en behalf of other people's struggles, nor attempt to organize exclusively around student issues. Rather, campus NAM groups seek to perform as cne part af the broader movement consiSting of many sectors of the population. Nor will it seek to become an outlet for vague anxiety and disccntent with no coherent politics: at the Thanksgiving conference a set of ccmcret pl'Og}'ams for the immediate fllture were put together. Specifically, three issue-areas were "priority11 status: (1) The economy--specifically, strike support; struggles for equal pay for equalll[ork for women, around p:ices, and around taxes; and for imJrOVement and popular control of social services, particularly those for child-care.

(2) Anti-war and anti-imperialism---to participate in and raise the political level of existing struggles against the American tresense in Southeast Asia; to devise an alt.e=ative foreig)l policy ''based 11 (I) safety. In a Jtklll, NAM ehapten are urged to mtegrate feminist perspective into all areas of pract1ce, rather than simply approaching women's l:iberatioa as me item oo a list af issues, as has been traditional for radical groups. What the interim p;iority program seems to repoesent is a lucid and fairly sophisticated to integrat the day-to-day for concrete gains in this society with aJJ overall goal of social revolution. Within thJs framework we think it is possible to get something going oo the campus and (hopefully) in the Sarasota community.

As a relative outsider on the staff (although playing a vital role as chief coffee-maker and pipe-smoker), I feel that I am in a un ique position to clear up spme of the controversy that aurrounds the Organ's name.

8 .RGAN: Comment and People We are not beasts of burden, we are not agricultural implements or rented slaves, Who is this Talisman the people are striking against? The drama of Cuban American relations stand testament to the American sugar barons' power and values. These men controlled Cuba's economy; afraA.d of Cuban intervention in their investments they found a common ally in our government who sanctified and strengthened their positions, While they "danced with their millions," the per capita income of the Cuban people was less than $6 a week, The barons subjected people to hunger, disease, and degradation, Cuba's final independence from the U nited States forced the sugar barons to bring it all home. The present owner of Talisman, William Pawley, was once American ambassador to Cuba, Dreams of the way it used to be must have prompted his recent purchase (with still undocumented funds) of the Talisman plantation, His heart is stillthere, He is also president of the u.s. Free Cuban Prisoners of War organization. The Cuban revolution has thus fled the politics of sugar production, Once Cuban sugar was banned, all Democratic (and unrivaled) means were at the barons' dispo sal, Thanks to government subsidies and the Army Corps of Engineers, Florida sugar cane production rsgketed from less than 175,000 tons in '61 to 717,000 tons in '67. It is controlled by 9 incestuous companies, Sugar companies have found it impossible to recruit domestic labor to cut the cane--which has to be done by hand with a machete, at danger to the cutter froffi the machetes and the sharp cane leaves, The pa.y: 11 ttle over $ 2,00 an hour. The government imports Jamaican labor that the barons need. we are men. f/t ;j ()_ _gcu, l7.Sf &/#/ Caesar Chavez To be Chicano, Cubano, or black and work for multi-million dollar Talisman Sugar Corporation is to be powerlessr to say "No" is to take one step toward respect and dignity as a human being. For poverty wages, workers must work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week-or not at all. But they are not striking over wages and hours, but over a more crucial issue--the right to be treated like a human being. That right is denied them now. Talisman is a company where cases ,like these are common to those on the picket lines --workers saying anything but 11Yessir" to supervisors threatened with dismissal and physical attack. --William Pawley, multimillionaire, walking the the field, spotting 1one worthless bolt on the ground. Pawley ordering a worker 50 feet away in the hot sun, rather than stoop ing to pick it up himself. strike conditions are equally degrading and violent. --Pawley fired his striking employees immediately, refusing to even talk to them. --The foreman of oil truck drivers whO had honored the picket line orderinq his men back.
