2 Conn News If you know a girl considering an Ron Sachs, editor of the student paper of the University of Florlda in Gatnesvt I le, was arrested Wednesday for violating a nineteenth century Florida law prohibiting the publlcation of abortion referral information. Sachs claims the law is unconstitutional, and of the women of New Col lege, The Cpl lege is at this reprfnting an article from last Cauldron, and an ad for abortion referral printed in that publication. We do not have the ad printed in but the spirit Is the same. We believe, with Ron Sachs, that the people of Florida have every rlght to abortion information, and that any law restricting that right is unconstitu tional. We trust our legislators In Tallah assee wil 1 take notice of this antiquated law on the books, and act accordingly. ABORTION this message might even save her life!

Although not responsible, the New college administration should be c 0 n cerned with the health and welfare oflh.e community, including the need for i:ir mation concerning abortions. In the past, the need for abortions was largely ignored by the administ.ratioll(or at best given a secretive, furtive sort of attention).

Editorials, Letters, Etc. 3 Hog Parlor SCARED? I remember a summer back horne when we were having some trouble with rustlers. ow our herd wasn't large enough to take much rustlin'. So it kind of upset us a little; I'd go out at night once in a while checking out the trails surrotmding our place and looking for what cattle hadn't shown up before nightfall The problem got worse when some of the cows were ready to spring (calf). Had some loo.g nights that summer. We may have some loo.g nights here ahead ci us. Could be we should've spent some nights staying up late in the past. Some of us I.Uldoubtedly have. We got some rustlin1 going on. Rustlin'--thievin'--taking somef:!ting of value. Only we've got a very perverse kind of rustling. Things of value arc being held--taken--out of our reach--for no reason at all. It's ..... upsetting. Apathy--Come on, folks; there's work to be done. We got a comrntmity to get going. Yeah, get going. Hell, the cotmtdown hasn't even started yet. A comment regarding New College Students was made a little over a year ago (during the strike), something to the effect that students here won't react appreciably tmtil the gtm.S are at their doorstep (white .. WHITE students shot at Kent State). That statement rings hollow in my gut, probably because I suspect it may be true. Look, folks, if you doo.1t do something about what's happening, who else will? Things happening in Asia, Chile, America, Florida, New College. Two ways to do things: a few people do whatever needs doing, or quite a few people do it. When a few people put out, they have to do so at great costs in terms of time spent. Also, the range of ideas and app roaches can be relatively small. When a lot of people put out, they don't need to spend that much time. The range of ideas and such are much larger. But, people don't care. lalY. Scared? --DHM THE NEW COLlEGE ORGAN Published Weekly By The Students of New College Sarasot:l, Florida David H Middleman Jr .... Editor STAFF: Douglas Murphy Ira Halberstadt Steve Jacobson Leslie Swett Eric Nascmann Steven David, Sarasota Is small, as far as cities go. But It Is a southern city, and like alI cities has certain myths that groups like the Chamber of Commerce love to keep alive. Like the myth of Sarasota affluence. Granted, there are lots of m l 1 1 t res here '''YOU'RE UNDER ARREST!" But as anyone involved Project REAL, or anyone who lives in the city, rather than on campus, can tell you, there Is elso Newtown, where our city fathers have refused untl I recently to even pave the streets. a ghetto, Colony \f you wlll, where the ma\n source of awey from strrp along the bay, one ffnds the poor whrtes--the real Sarasota. Affluence Jn Sarasota is 2! miles wide. After that you heve the South, where the poor of the USA have always been tucked away, far from the eyes of suntan-search ing tourists. And the other prominent myth, that Sarasota Is the cultural center of Florida, If not the entire south. Sarasota has Its share of old, rather reactionary artists, dirty old men, and mystery writers. But If this city is such a "cultural center", why do al't the younger, talented artists writers move away? Our artists and writers are a I I in or rapidly heeding there. And I believe I've seen more "art" on the walls of the ONICA headquarters In lmMOkallee than on all the Sarasota wea 1 thy Keys put toQether. Editor: Sad times have come to pass the ew College of old is dead; in fact, the youth generatioo. of old may be dead as well. What happened to activism on our campus? To the commitment to an ideal so strongly felt that momentarily notbwg else mattel:d? Are there so few left that care enough to become involved? We are a commtmity with Robin Morgan in our midst yet somehow it seems that Women's Liberation was more active and exciting in the past when there was at least enthusiasm and purpose if not direction and organization. Althoug'h I find myself supporting the draft, the Military, the War, I would rather youth oppose these things as they have in recent years than retreat into the growing apathy I find me. To actively work to end the War was once youth's thing, but now, for moot, the glitter :md glamor and "fun" have wom away. Where did our local ecology 111ovement go that seemed so strong not so long ago? And here at New College, the same has happened, continually happens with Project REAL. Last year Drst term, sixty-plus students "committed" themselves to REAL and the fight against poverty. Less than half that nu.<,ber remained second term to continue the work begtm, and by thirsl term there were even fewer. Why? Was poverty so effectively eliminated those few weeks at the beginning of the school year? Hardlv. There were a number of factors contributing to this decline but outstanding among them was: fighting poverty, as opposing the War or building a better is difficult, tedious, and often m1.mdane; 1t is hard work with all too often no visible ot tangible results or rewards for efforts .. Yota:h plunges into causes (or d1d) because it is The Thing To Do; it is what they have read about, philosophized and theorized about; it is what is Right and Just. Then youth forgets his commietment because his attention span is too short he is being entertained or catered to or rewarded. Such is not the failing of youth alone; tt might well be a weakness of the M!.tire nation. We are a spoiled nation. Cornm'lmism in Asia if nothing else (which is not the case), has least been able to mobilize and motivate their people to a sustained effort over years and even decades motivated them to endure hardship sufferm'g and death whlle worlinable. We, howeve-., a-.e a -peoplt ot: tnoods, our en' and dleCli'JM WCIIIIdDa 10 -impact, a real impact, ClD daat atl wldala we talk aDd advocate.

Perhaps I have misread the signs. Perhaps those here at New College are working as actively towards che same ends as in the past but are doing it more quietly with different means. Nevertheless, on the surface, i! ew College is not dead, it is at best only dormant. David B.

'E' dorm, like all the Palmer campus dorms, is a squat hunk of concrete that vaguely resembles a child's construction of two separated cubic blocks topped by a long, flat one in roughly Stonehenge fashion. The central area houses two cement staircases, its only salient extemal feature; they are bared like lopsided rows of teeth in a grimace of sympathy directed across the way to dorm 'B'. These two dorms were y being built before the others and 1mder a different fire code; the other two dorms have one staircase apiece and a living room area takes up the extra space. In function as well as appearance the Palmer dorms are less rltzy than the Pei dorms on the other side of campus. There are no tiled courts to gather in, only kitchens (4 per donn) which seem to exude a common stench of onions and I or cabbage, cooked years ago. Though rancid, and humble-looking, these kitchens are beloved ratty gathermg spots. In addition to being an angular concrete glob, the dorm is also a mystique. As I moved in, someone told me, "that was my room last year", and the scabby, plckmarked walls suddenly seemed drenched in the intermittent din of longgone partjes, and m the stale nervous sweat of antique hours spent in study. 'Ib.e mystique is perpetuated by old timers, who sit in the kitchens like grizzled tribal leaders and recomt yams. There was the dude who lived and slept out in the parking lot in a van for three years, and cooked his meals in here. and the super-brain who studied so much he hardly left his room to eat--everybody p-edicted he'd die in there alone and never be missed, and at the end of the year some guy from Buil.dmgs and Grounda would come tD. .... dae rotllld Iliad m\ll&er ''these ldds ...... The mystique is renewed and perpetuated day to day. Last Sunday there was a dorm spaghetti dinner; the stuff slithered down your throat tmless it crawled ali your plate first, and people sat belching and spealdng of esoteric academia. For reasons best known to themselves, a band of merry masochists sat last weekend in a kitchen until 2A. M., rubbing their bleary eyes and putting together an op art puzzle. Someone was taking three frames of movie film for each successfully placed piece but as the hours mounted, the DeMille effort was abandoned. (The puzzle was nevertheless completed over the next couple of days. ) A donn is also a mercilessly fast initiation to living with others of ravening self-interest equal to your own: as evidenced at 1 A.M. the other night by the bloodcurdling shriek of 11tum ali the goddamned music! 11 The music player switched cd and es.caped into the void as people spilled into the hallway lusting to pound the equally stupid shrieker.
