SPECUlATION The Caples property now belongs to New College, to be used for college purposes. Adjoining the North side of the Ringling Museum, the thirteen -acre plot of land has as its main feature a large, magnificent house. The p:oblem facing the Community and Trusteeris one of figuring out how to best utilize the p:operty. President Elmendt)d is still in the specu lative stage, saying that while suggestions have been made, the decision is in the hands of the trustees. Queried about the estate and the possibilities, the p:esident stated that the place is in a state of though still quite impressive. One S"Qggestion he received opined that tne &-v"'-'"'"' serve as the presidential residence. Another suggestion wa.s that a Fine Arts CenteP be located there. Dr. Elmendorf seemed pleased with the latter option. Another use for the p:operty could be to have some sort of housing built on the growds. When asked about the matter, acting Provost Charles Lyons stressed what he thought an important consideration: that the factor of distance or cain pus separation be positive for whatever use chosen. He also mentioned the idea of constructing a lab school on the ];XOperty. In talking with Brud Arthur of Public Relations, another possible use was mentioned. Mr. Arthur recalled a S"Qggestion made in the past by someone that a faculty club of some sort be built an the estate. What do you want the p:operty to be used for? Docs; On Wednesday evening in the Fishbowl, there was a meeting for students consudering a career in medicine and the allied fields. Dr. John Monill, Chairman of the division of Natural Sciences, Together with DrS. Ansbacher, Buri, and Kirtley, spoke and an swered questions for an hour and a half about requirments of medical schools, admission trends, various types of programs, p:oblems of applying from New College( Non-graded transcripts, etc. ), and other aspects of graduate graduate study in medicine. Commenting on the large toumout of around forty people, it was noted that"this is the first time we would have been able to fill a room with pre-medical students. 11 In years past there hllve been just a h:ilf dozen or so who actually completed the pre-med curriculum. New College has had only five students apply to medical school; however all five were accepted at a school of their choise. It was 1hought that this was a large measure due to the extremely high caliber of these appli-cants. 1 Currently, gaining admission to a medica school is very difficult: statistics show that fewer than one oat af three applicants are accepted. In addition, the demands of a pre-med course of studies are extensive and rigorous, such that a serious student have little time for "other 11 courses during his/her three years at New College. Faculty recommendations play a large role m coDSlder ation by medical school admissions staff, particularly from a schoollil

News 5 lo m1 theBo I surviving sarasota COMMENT SlDday night in the Fishbowl, Professor Ron Bloom gave an hour and a half background Jnsentation and an.alysis a( ixon s New Economic Policy (NEP) which was announced by the President to the nation August 15th. The well-Jnpared talk was an e.cellent layman's in1roduction to Keynsian economics and international finance as well as the :EP. A large nmnber of the ew College community attended with approximately 85-100 sitting in for at least a pation af the talk., that basically the Nixon Administrat101l ascribed to a ''trickle-down tbeay" of economics: that, if business J.ZOfJis are kept high or allowed to increase (as they can under the NEP), this eventwlly will favorably affect ecc:nomic recovery when Ule benefits <1 these p:ofits finally reach the lower levels d. CODSUIIlers (in Olher wards, when the benefits of increased cc:nsuxning power ''trlckle-down" to the lower and middle income groups). Being Republican, the adherence by Nixal to such a policy is if not also p:ed.i.ctable, However, omce an unuswl curence for ew College where often eccmomics cl2.sses again, Bloom felt that the 1EP would be more e.fiective if fewer go wanting for a 1 ck of interested students. t.fudol.iltedly the controversy measures had been included to aid busmess and more were pesent andth motional impact over the 1'-.'EP were respansible for this turnout (which, of ourse, is not meant as a reflection against Proiess Bloom and his appeal as a speaker in. his own right).

6 Campus Clatter and Teen Chatter Bryan Norton is proposing an experiment, an experiment dealing with student-designed education. If interested, it is wished that you contact him. The gist of the experiment follows. What counts as a "problem" is a very subject ive, individual matter, and I have fotmd that courses which I have designed have not always posed problems which were felt as troblems by the students. In order to avoid the tmhappy task of convincing students that they have a problem which they did not teel, befOre embarking upon a discussion of possible solutions to that problem, I intend to rely more heavily upon student proposed courses and designed courses. Consequently, I am leaving open my offerings for second and third terms. Any student is welcome to propose any topic as a possible course or tutor ial. He need not already know anything about the subject in order to suggest it and to partici pate in the structuring of the col.U'SC. The all important factor, however, is time. We must begin work on second-term courses within the first couple weeks of first term, and third-term courses must be proposed in January. Here is a list of general areas where I feel at least somewha what competent and am interested in pursuing. The suggestions I will at least listen tq, however, are not limited to this list. Topics in the History of :Ehllosophy, Twentieth analytic philosophy, Metaphysics, logic, philt Sl)phy of language, social and political phil and theoretical linguistics. Some more specific topics I am interested in are: Philosophical bases of psychology, the problem of human nature; the statis of political theory, philosophers Rudolf Carnap, W, v. Descartes, the British empiricists, and the linguist, Noam Chomsky. Bryan Norton Dome ...

News 7 off-campus study byBram Haver THE COMMUNITY CATALOG PROJECT This will be a regular column covering the news from the Off-Campus Study Office. It will am1ounce all significant new trograms, as well as occasional reports em various peoples' off cam pus experiences. Financial Aid The Summer Study discussion of orienting new students to the Sarasota and surrounding offcampus areas, raised the more deep-rooted problem of the isolation of the College from the community. It was felt that the sense of cultural separation from the community had become exaggerated and that the community should be recognized as a wealth of diverse educational resources. The objective identified was to discover what the community has to offer and to make what is discovered, known. The best way of doing that seemed to be the Jmparation of a "Whole Sarasota Catalog" of people and places of potential interest and enlightment. It was thought that 011ce the new students were settled in, they would be ideal infor mation gatherers for such a cataloge because of their natural interest in discovering the potentials od their new enviomment. anal ogy was drawn to bees and their hives. the bees disperse in all directions in search of pollen. On return to the hive they commun icate their findings to the other bees by a sybolic dance. While old bees think they already :know where all the D.owers are, the young bees search everywhere and thereby discover new resources. By this process the hive is enriched, the yotmg bees gam accep_ tace and the flowers bloom. In order for this to br accomplished a cores of worker bees and compiler bees would needed.

Some students have apparently been bringing in friends for a dip iD. the pool. This is a no no. This has been a J;rQblem in the past, so last year the SEC settled it. Here is their ruling from tht: meeting of May 5, 1971: "The pool may be ally by members of the NC comm'lllity, relatives and registered ovemigbt over the age of m! teen. Except:lans must be gamted by tile SEC. The reasoning behind this ruling is twofold; 1hst, there are liabWty complicaticms that arise from insurance claims from accidents, and the pool area has no distinct bathroom facilities, so the health board says we can 1t -operate a public pool The a mount of financial aid a t Lew Coller e will probably be about the same in the futrureallowine: of course for fluctuations in the national and the College condition. This is probably reassurng news to most Kew Colleg e in view of past years' fin8ncial aid cuts. Be reassured-the cutting of fat off the fiokncial aid prog ram is over according to Ken Simcoe. His our year mis sion to search out and destroy squandering of these funds is virtu-all y over. Underfunded? Doubt e entering is about the most realisti.cally funded class of any in the country. What is realistic? Realistic is up to full tuition depending upon need1 But no matter what the nee9 realistic does not include room and board. These limits, Simcoe insists, are partially for the lack of Black, Indian, and Puerto Rican students enrolled. College, by using this policy cannot compete with other schools which will 'pay full expenses. About 60p of this class is receivinG financial aid. However, only of these students come from impoverished families. Is remarkable? Probably, cons1derlng Ken oimcoe does not expend as much as he might. buch thrift is unusual in any college community. Yet remarkably, the Admission's Office is not forced to send out any Admit-Deny letters. Hard to believe--yes. The Blue Goose (the school bus) has been repaired and re81m'ected.

8 .RGAN: Comment and People ''TA-DAA!1 The Office and The Man There are still students on campus who can remember sitting in one of Jim Feeney's classes. They might recall Feeney roclcing his chair, looking expectantly at a student developing an argument, and exploding: "Exactly!" Fond memories. Jim's time came to be devoted more and more to adm.inistrative matters. Not quite a year ago, Feeney's position as a faculty member became vacant, leaving us with one sociologist. Through the off-campus study office, which he heads, flow all ISP forms. Manned by Jim and his secretary, Ruth Fleming, the office is de signed to coordinate off-campus opportunities with faculty and student desires. Organizationally, the office is directly under the authority of the Provost. Why did Feeney abandon "academia" for what might be seen as a drier occupation? It can be seen basically as an experiential consideration: Jim came to know the courses he taught fairly well; one can juggle the books around, the structure of the class can be changed, yet the subject matter might still become somewhat familiar. In his terms, he made the jwnp to broaden his horizons. Through his administrative position, he is freer to explore what this colleee is all about--innovation. He has the opportunity to leam what truly innovative trOgrams are .in existence.. More importantly, he can assist in making New innovative by coordinating opportunities with pheasible plans. How does one go about this? Jim keeps abreast of programs around the cowtry: poverty programs, community action/ organizmg and others. de travels, looks at other colleges and tmiversities. He files, digests, and makes this information available to the college com' muoity. Feeney fmds his work exciting. He can tell you of fme opportunities, p;'Ograms with great possibilities. Programs that aren't being taken advantage of. One can lead a horse to water Walk into Ruth Fleming's office. Look at the college catalogs, the brochures on summer jobs, jobs abroad, Vista, and the Peace (there are even pamphlets on the Marme Corps.) Go see Feeney. Talk to the man about goals, plans, possibilities. Drop a few names, like Ferlin Husky, Bobby Bland, or Merle Haggard. Watch his eyes light up, listen to him talk. .... NADER DRAFTED?
