volume 1 februar Reagent IntervieW. Pete Fazio part By Mitchell R"chards On a cold Monday morning at slightly after 8:00, your interviewers (Reagent Editor Randall Lanier and man about town Witchell Richards), pen, paper, and a wizened old tape recorder in hand, entered the den of the great feudal lord himself. The results are here-in reported by the aforementioned man about town, who assumes soel responsibility in the event that any bad feeling is directed toward the Reagent as a result. Play that tape: Re: Housing's maintained a much lower profile this year than in years past, wouldn't you say? F: Yes. At the beginning of the year I told the incoming students that, if they left us alone, we'd leave them alone. If this is true, then I have to maintain a low profile. But what I also have to do is deliver services. I think I'm one of the few housing directors I have ever known who did not live in a dorm. This gives me a very interesting perspective. Because I won't allow the students to settle for something I wouldn't settle for when renting an apartment, which is almost, in effect, what you're doing here Whereas other housing directors would say you only need rooms cleaned once every two weeks, and at best they can be cleaned in a way that's inef or haphazard, we've now got the rooms cleaned every five days. That started two weeks ago. In fact this week the RA's will check ten rooms 1 of 2 a piece to make sure that they have and eleaned cor-. rectly Also. in terms of a low profile, we've established a new activities committee this year, which has come up with an entire schedule of activities funded by Housing, without the RA's involvement other than as helpers. So again the RA job has become low-profile in that they're helping rather than actively planning and creating activities Although it's obvious that I'm intimately involved in Stud ent Affairs, I don't think the Housing viewpoint in Student Affairs is more strongly felt than say, Chris Martin's is as Director of Hamilton Center. So I think it's shifted. It is usually the case that the Housing person is the second eminent nerson at Student Affairs. I don4t think that's the case here right now Re: "Where'd this guy come from, anyway?" F: I started out in 1974; I was hired at Fordham as Director of Placement. I held that job there for about a year and a half and then I became Asst. Dean of Students. The full title was "Assistant Dean of Students for Campus and Stud ent Activities." What it came down to was that anything that happened outside the classroom aside from sports, at Fordham had to go through me. So I had every student activity, every club, the whole budget apparatus oh and there was student and administrative control, in equal numbers sit-Continued on page 3 somef INC others fear disast The New College Foundation Board of Trustees met on Frid February 11, in the music room of College Hall. Highlights of the "open" session were the mornings remarks of Trustees John Anton, Robert Barylski Ronald Hixon, and John Lott' Brown. The comments of these members best characterized the .two divergent points of view that seem to dominate the Board. Members seem to be of the opinion that either 1) NC is doing fine, that it is secure financially and in as a program dis t1 ct on 1n the unversity system or 2) NC is in serious finan cial difficulty and that if enrollment remains at.or about 350 and no new resources are developed, the college will go bankrupt. Anton was the first to talk. His remarks centered on programs begun at, and awards won by NC. Doctors Bates, Ben and McDonough were named as recent grant recipients. Anton touched upon the idea of reviewing the spending of the MacAurthur Chair funding, announced the completion of Self-Study, Phase I, and mentioned that recruiting of new professors to flill upcoming slots was proceeding. While Hixon, Noya,and to some extent Brown were the most vocal participants in the meeting, and represent the members of the Board who question Anton and Barylski's sunny view, it is clear that the battle lines are not firmly drawn. Whatever problems the "open" session of the Board meeting showed, there does not seem to be a lack of concern on the part of the members, but rather a reluctance to stand up and deal with problems like admissions. Some Board members would obviously rather meet for lunch and skip the meetings; unless the executivesession was alot more effective in deciding upon courses of action, perhaps they might as well. Barylski began by welcoming the trustees to a "National Historic referring to a recent declaration concerning continued on page 3

The sum presented was $50,000 in additional funds each year to reach the goal of $300,000 in 1990. If these funds can be raised the issue of lowering admissions standards might be laid to rest. No seems to want to lower admissions standards. Where the money will come from is another matter. This year the Foundation supplied the necessary $50,000, but there is no obvious source for future needs that will have to be fulfilled. USF hasgone from a position of "maybe, but I don't think so", to one of "submit an official request and then maybe we can do somethinP:" (not direct quotations). Admissions, however, is in need of immediate funding tm get its donated computer in shape. Costs could vary from $800 to $15,000, depending on what is bought. Admissions software, a printer, and a word processor--all necessary for the functioning of an effec-tive department--would be much more than $800, but less than $15,000. Again, no one knows where the money will come from. The planned library is a first priority new project, but there are several other USF projects to be completed first such as the Fine Arts building a 25 million dollar cancer re-' search center, a med school a nurs1ng school, and a new encollege, just to mention a few. Our library is on the Regents list for funding for next year, and on Tampa's for this year, so there is a ood chance of starting fully the State legislature will provide the 7.0 million 1eeded by the end o f this year. hen w i l l funds com e t hrough for repair and constr ction of "non-academic" b "ldings?

FAZIO, continued ting on the budget committee. There were 200 students work ing in operations that I ran. It was a big position, in terms of responsibility. Pro in my mind, overwhelm for one person; the reason I left Wa) because I was putting in one hundred hours a week--sixty hours per week-and one week I put in a hundred. And that was the week my second kid was born I decided That's it. I don't need this." So I packed up, moved down he re, and got hired here as Financial A i d Counselor. A t that point i n time the main reason I got the job was because of my placement background. Because even three years ago people here ha d started saying that there was going to be a need here for placement-type activity, since we can't keep as'suming that ninety percent of ouF, classes were going to to to graduate school. People were saying that back then. I was here one year and a half as the Financial Aid Counselor and I was asked if I'd be interested in the Housing job. Instead of making them two separate jobs at the time, I think, because of the view (the distorted view) of Housing over the past three years due to what had been happening, there was not a consideration that they really demanded two full time positions. I think that if a ny o ne c ould have seen ahead--that in three y ears Financi a l Aid w ould grow four times as big as it is--then people of course would never have com bined those two positions .. FOUNDATION, continued the area from Caples House north to NC, including Ringling Mus eum, USF, and the Asolo. Plans for the campus' new library, according to the dean, have been resubmitted to the architects after consultation with campus personnel; directions were giv en to make the next plan both more serviceable and less postmodern. Barylski further commented on the work continuing on the Caples campus, where NC will house its E SP, as well as music and art studios. I t was Anton and Barylski who presented the view that C is on track, and making good progress. Trustee Ron Hixon, however, was of another opinion. Prefacing his remarks with the statements: "I'm not an academic .. I'm just a businessman," he began to blast away at the rosy picture painted by Anton and Barylski. His own picture is dominated by the view that if C doesn't increase its enrollment, its funding problems will continue to grow until the college is forced into bankrupt?Y Hixon attacked the presentat1on of statistics for admissions in percentag e numbersi citing actual numbers, he pointed out, unmasks a net loss of 17 students from term I to term II. hile admitting that he'd only been o n the board less than a year, he said he'd seen eno u g to realize that w hat we hav e here is, in effect, e Colleg e of Sarasota, Florida." Perhaps his most pointed comment was that if there are only 350 (or less) of the financial aid paperwork and lift it off me. And the helped out alot. I don t know if, today, even with the increase, Financial Aid would be a full time job. Housing, definitely, but I'm not sure about Financial Aid. But I think we're holdour own here, and I think it's because fo good RA's, really, over the course of three years. Re: Could you define briefly what an RA's job is? F: Let me define what I see the RA role as, rather than what they're supposed to do What I see as the function of the RA's is that they're the one solid link, administratived y that the colle9e has with the students. I don t think that the students interact with the faculty mem-bers the same way they do with administration people I just don't think that happ;ns. There are just too many pressures there, too many ties. There's too much worrying about what you might say and all that. A lot of the pressure's taken out in the direction of Student Affairs and Student Life. It's crucial for anyone who's in SA h I f or w o s 1n a non-academic role to have some kind of line into the student body, have some kind ot pulse about what students are worried about and how they view the way things are going on .. A lso, t here a r e nitty-gritty things that need to be done tha t are simply inappropriate, in this setting, to be done administratively there's a link there ... between this office and the students. wno want to or go to NC, who needs it? H xon would like to see admissions policies and fund raising efforts expanded, and suggested that we document the cases of lost students so we know exactly why they left. NC admissions director Roberto Noya was recognized at this point to comment on Hixon's remarks. Noya stated that admissions had been doing all they could with their funding, but that they were financially handicapped He reminded the Board the any recommendations for further action that were not backed up with funds were just so much hot air. USF president Brown concurred, mentioning that "if there are no students, of course .. Brown noted that NC would not need 600 students by tomorrow, but still he expressed his desire to see 4-500 students soon. He added that as far as showing the College to prospectives was concerned, perhaps too few "see the intangibles that are the most important aspects of C," when they visit. Hixon, Noya, and to some extent Brown were those concerned enough about the admissions problem to voice their opinions, but it is clear that the battle lines are not yet firmly drawn. Just what's with the rest of the Board is not clear: per-ha s they'd rather s ip the mee -ings and just have lunch. Un less the pace of activity was a great deal higher in the executive session, perhaps t y ight as well. is done by the RA's. In that the Housing c&nt ract is signed t the RA's responsibility. Inventory is done by RA's. They are supposed to where every student is liv all o the time, and anyone has room-mate troubles and to step in if it becomes a necessary. They're supposed to make sure, administratively, those of who work here in Student have some sort of way of what's really going on the student population. * I n The Next Reagent: Pete Fazio talks about the big issues: The search for a Resident Counselor; The Housing Budget; and the big, big question--Fazio's Fiefdom, Fact or Fiction? Cou sel or, Chaplain Kevn Brown Resigns By Lizanne M i nerv a After three years at New College, Kevin Brown is returning to school to earn his doctoral degree. H e has served as camp u s minister three years and acting head the counseling center for one year. Kevin lans to enroll at PbU chaei the previous head of the counseling center, went on leave during the 1982-1983 school year; he has not indicated whether or not he plans to retain his position. Brown's counseling contract ends on August 15th, the ecumenical contract in June. The repre from J8 local churches and religious groups fund the New College ministry. Brown resigned because he has spent his projected three years here, having pre-determined his length of stay. He also felt that he had accomplished what he regarded as important with the ministry. The past three years have been times of change at New College. Brown favors the more liberal attitudes towards activities outside the school's routine: the Community Service League, the student newspaper, and the Fraternity. Nit wider student interaction, he sees students uaining "an ability 0 to think, to respond .. not Just academics, but actually doing something."

New College Drama: setting the stage By Pam Levin Many New College commun members have been about the "drama situa-ttibn" here. The questions as to whether there is or can be a stronger theatre program are legitimate ones; and the only absolute answer seems to be that New College is a frustrated potential resource. The grand part of the problem is financial, the school simply hasn't the funds for theatre facilities and re lated equipment. As a resudt, anyone sponsoring a production has to work around existing schedules in Hamilton Center or the Music Room to create r but a makeshift stage; as well as scheduling, finding places for uninterrupted rehearsal r and for equipment storage can be difficult. Classics professor John Moore, who is, at this point, the only prduction-sponsoring faculty member, remembers in the past, had to contend with concerts, karate, and other worthwhile activities," but he says, at such a fine liberal arts school it's too bad that this side of fine arts can't be brought out more. He brings up the point that dramatic work in an important activity, not only in the academic sense, but as a growth in student life. "It takes sustained effort; you rea11y have to do it. It invo ves possib e p u b i c fail ure, which can b e intimidating, but it also bring s insig h t into literature that's read." 1982 Grad Stuart Phillips first came to NC because he saw this potential; he knew that with the academic structure he would have more opportunity to direct and produce "without the 12 years of departmental preliminaries." He had experience behind him, and wanted to bring a professional level of excel lence to work with students not necessarily "going into" acting. His direction of last year's -sq,u s made him feel hopeful, and he found very help ful, very useful. I like the cooperative work with the Asolo, too. Manuel Duque (who has worked with I S P groups) hits hard at roots and makes you grow from there." This Asolo connection brings u p a number of future possibilities. In the past, according to there was more cooperation, and it's still a strong opportunity for I S P's and more. The school Fine Arts Council, depending on interest, is look ing into sponsoring a professional acting class for students. Further, thanks to the $750,000 donation from Harry Sudakoff, there are plans "for the future," to include an auditorium in the new library. This room might be used as a multi-purpose center, although current estimates to make that possible stand at the distant $2 million mark. Provost Anton, however, states that it's under discussion," and he is, like everyone else, open to suggestions. 'We will not exclude any opportunities that arise to enhance the facilities for these activities, but, he says, "at this point fine arts is trying it's best to meet student's needs." As resources are located, more can be looked into. In theory, more drama could be seen as useful to school public relations, as well as within the community. S uch stagings as drama festivals could perhaps be useful for admissions purposes and towards general PR. Possibly more important though, are internal small-scale performances, such as what students Elizabeth Palmer and Melissa Cahill are working on as theses. Melissa agrees that a program could be looked into: "at NYU it was so o e you have a lot more freedom and room to be c reative." New Colleg e actually has many options available which could create a drama program. If reso,Jrces really are an issue, some of these should be looked into. 5350 N.

Fat Boy to Save Leaning Tower A New Student Center? By Randall Lanier On Wednesday, January 12, Robert C. \'letherell, owner of FatBoy's Barbecue, called to order the 2nd meeting of what may be the most ambitious committee ever formed in the Sarasata area. The Reagent was there to investigate this most unusual organization: the Committee to Pre serve the Leaning Tower of Pisa (CPLTP). Amidst roasted pig, cold beer, french fries, and coke, (sorry, no Lasagna) the CPLTP unfolded its plans, with the help of a three-foot model of the famous Italian Tower, -. The crooked Tower, one the renowned "Seven Wonders.of' the may become an l.l;t egral part of New College if the CPTLP can carry out 1ts plans. Those plans, for the tower to be moved 1n pieces to the Ringling Museum grounds next to Sarasota are still somewhat tentat1ve. C.F. "Corky" \'Jhite, a member has suggested a Plan B." His alternative: move the Tower on to the New College Campus where it might be used as a "student center. The Committee realizes the Italian government (long lnfluenced by the Left) might reluctant to give up one of 1ts oldest national monuments, but so far has refused to let that dampen their enthusiasm. Says Shite: "Perhaps we can get the Italians to let us tower even if we can t move 1t to Sarasota." Though the committee feels that the tower should be saved no matter where it is located, they have given up on the hope that 1t might eventually come to Sara-sota. t The CPLTP was not w1thou professional at their first meet1ng. M. "Duddy" Roesch, Jr., a Pln ellas county house mover, was present. Mr. Roesch has been to Italy for the express .purpose of studying the Leanlng Tower of Pisa from an engineering point of view. He has made drawings and studi?,s of project, and says he knows Just how to do it." In an earlier tele interview with CPTLP Wetherell said "I move houses and commercial buildings every day that are than the Leaning Tower of Pisa." He stated at the January 12th meeting that he could move the Tower to Sar asota or simply straighten it out where it stands. Everyone agreed the the Tower should be leaning, but at a slightly more stable angle than the current tilt, which is almost 17 feet off center. pert "Duddy" suggested several plans to straighten the Tower by five feet or so while reinforcing the foundation. The committee was not too sure how they would get the enormous amount of money needed to complete their project. (An government report estlmated the cost of restoration to be 10.2 million.) "Corky" White spoke for the whole CPTLP when he said that they were "keeping an open mind" as far as fund-raising was concerned. They plan to solicit both government and private funds; car washes were suggested as well. Apparently some financial contributions have already been received. President believes that "There must be something better to do with all this money than just sticking it in my shirt pocket." Money to get the Tower transported to the U.S. is not the only major problem facing the CPTLP. In the event that they do get their hands-on the Tower, they will be faced with liability problems. "What it the Leaning Tower of Pisa was reduced to a hundred tons of rubble?" said a CPLTP member. Even if if they were given the goSAit-TRAIL(cont.)

As director ot club, I debate whether or not I should plan camping activities that ,tudents could "sign up ror." So tar, I have decided against it because ot the possible conflicts of ot people who are just thrown together( the "20-miles-a-day" hiker vs. the "leisurely n$ture strolling" type; it could be an instanee where just don't get along) and also because ot the time involved (keeping up with the equipment and doing the sailing tests takes up plenty ot time).

Mac Miller made sure that the recent meeting of the NC Special Prob lems Committee (SPC) got down to business. After listening to opening remarks by Provost Anton and USF vice-president for acad ernie affairs Greg O'Brien, Miller aimed at. and fired away upon USF's inactive role in helping NC admissions. Miller questioned the USF "gift" of $7100 a year, which is not all that substantial, yet ;s enough to require all NC admis sions personnel to meet USF credentialling requirements. Those requirements, while fine for USF, have nothing to do with NC's market. "We are being outsold, outmailed, outentertained across the board, said Miller, "by schools whose academic reputations do not compare with NC's. Mac cited that there was no response at the Foundation Board meeting to our problems, which are immediate, ... as immediate as the personnel we have to work with." O'Brien, who had opened with statements about the cutbacks that were creating system-wide problems, responded by saying that the university is prohib ited from recruiting (even "I ha e broke." Dr. Peggy Bates on Miller's questions by clarify just what O'Brien had said: "Are you saying that admissions is a Foundation responsibility, or that it's a USF sponsibility but that you can t help us at this time?" Dean of Regional Campuses James Heck handled this one by mentioning that Grant monies might be made to NC admissions for salar1es, but that that was the only way to properly channel USF money down to Sarasota for that office. NC Provost John Anton jumped in at this point to the argument that Admissions (the only administrative office that reports solely to him) was not doing eoungh. He cited statist-ics for Fall 1982 that showed 92 completed applications, and 66 admits. For Fall 1983 Admis sions received 143 applications, and had admitted 99, a jump. He closed his remarks w1th the comment that when he was recruited for the job of Provost, the number of students that was quoted to him was "Around 500 You promised me 500 students. You guys owe me 150 with spirits in them!" As Miller had wanted, the meeting get right down t? business, out unfortunately lt was business as usual.

Approaching 21: Is New College Mature? By Rick Doblin A college is at its core a of individuals in the investigation of fundamental questions. College retains the on individuality but seems to have lost the sense of com:1unity. Some year'1 for the return of req,_dred core classes to the curriculum, accurately sensinf the need for mification of the separate and lonely elements of or college. Yet it seems more in line with the College ideal for there to be a common idea interdisciplinarily, for to be a common '.riewpoint. I think that ";ew College as a whole would benefit from foc,;sing on a single topic and that each year a l'Tew College white Paper (a White aper is an o icia s atemen of beliefs put out by insti trltions) be published each year. The contents of the study could be offered to the larger com m,_mity in a series of-television lectures and in a hiv,h quality ma--;azine. The issuE' wold be centered around those aspects of the area that are necessary to basic human survival, and should be approached both locally and globally. As Buckminster Fuller said, "Think Globally, act locally." new College began by recognizing that intelligent, caring individuals from out of the free cultures on :arth deserved a college that wo1.rld permit them to think in new ways about old problems without external constraints and with the support of an academic community. Not only did these people--us--deserve this ouport11nity, but the community at larse desperately needed solutions to challenges, as well as the fresh inflow of all of us into the "system." trew College as an insti t'J.tion permits a wide range of individual options. Soon to have its twenty-first birthday, New College faces both a crisis and a g-reat opportunity. The crisis is that the experimental, individually based education will wither away from lack of interest. The crisis is the financial and psychological effects of the deepening world tensions. Our opportunity is to create a vital community and to speak to those aspects of our local area that are common to many global situations. Che Guevara said, "I envy you :orth Americans, you live in the heart of the beast. I think that he meant that from our comfortable lives within the most powerful culture on Earth, we the most leverage to chanP-e thlngs for the better.

The interdisciplinary perspective is perhaps the oal a 'on. l Yew College used to pride itself on its interdisciplinary efforts. Unfortunately, knowledge seems easily fragmented into divisions and classes. Before too long the holistic picture is lost, as well as a sense of community. Yet the holistic picture can only be apprehended by viewing a variety of unique and valuable limited.perspectives. I uropose that the Provost be a-budget of $10,000 to use to fund research needed for the New College White Paper. A t;umber fo community members worklng together on important, relevant issues would aid in the creation of our community, in a full sense and perhaps attract national attention as New Col lege has in the past. College is securely bedded lnto the State educational system and in the Sarasota community, and we are primarily responsible to those areas. Perhaps the initial issue could focus on water, which has been called "our most precious and abused resource," as well as "the next great resource battle." The Sarasota is in the process of intense debate on the methods of finding water for the The report would be submltted by the president of the College to the Mayor of Sar asota. The political and fund implications of such an educatlonal effort are obvious. The contents of the magazine and series be as follows: --1J1Jhy we need wa ted could be looked at from a medical, chemical, biological, economical perspective --how we use water, from a sociological, economic viewpoint might be next. --how we see it from an artistic, creative, dramatic and poetic viewpoint be next. --after that, how we think about it from a legal, 0 lous polnt of v2ew, or a philo-sophical approach. --how we could do more with less from a technological standpoint. --finally, the series could conclude with a statement fo what should be done and on what wil probably happen from a political, and futuristic perspective. These days ourselves as a culture, as individuals, as a community, and as a planet is at stake. It behooves us to re COGnize that fact and to respond to the challenges placed upon us.

TENUOUS THINKING by David Mitchell Adressing itself to "A Few Words About Nothing," a s published in Reagent Feb. 14, s3. Mr. Schmutz's critique of the Lazes exhibit displayed both ignorance and prejudice, To begin, the Fine Arts Council had no part in bringing Lazes to New College; that responsibility lies solely in the hands of Mr. L azes, myself, and to some extent, Elizibeth Palmer. The FAC provided a reception to the tune of $100, $50 more than anticipated due to a cross in signals. This much, I regret, I should emphasise that this article is not intended as a defense of Lazes' work. I found it just as unfullfilling as Mr. Sch mutz, if not more so; this is supposed to be my field of interest, after all, and if anyone has a distaste for gimmicky "art" it's me, However, in considering a Lazes show, it was necessary that I set aside, to some extent, my personal aesthetic preferences and consider instead the purpose of an exhibit at NC, Given the n ature o f the s chool, I feel it only appropriate that NC should as a gallery for unrec "surface" that I would hope NC's artistic, nay, total community would share with Lazes: the desire to uncover what is not already known, I certainly hope that when I am looking for a gal lery, I will not be confronted with a bunch of comfortable directors waving the Webster's definition of art at me, How preposterous. Perhaps Mr. Schmutz would feel more at home with some celebrated artists' prints in-stead, That way, he could look up what the critics had to say and give his own critiques some real substance, Or perhaps some one could direct him to the next Arvida Sarasota Ladies Art convention, where many beautiful paintings of particular significance can be found, Either way, Tommy, you can't help but to extend your perception of those things behind you, LIKE f\ \'\-' .. / FeBRUARY p.7 ll r By l'lick Carlson and Loathing in the Fishbowl" is at best off-base in the points it makes, and at worst it is misinformed and rabid in its approach. As a n article abou t intolerance it can be dismissed as a piece of self-parody. I n this a ssault o n the read e r s sensibilities, a group of s tudents who w ish to express their intellipent opposition to the formation of a F r aternity are laoelled a wa ng at the mouth and screaming for blood." As someone who attended the meeting, I know the "frat-boys" suffered nothing worse than being the brunt of a few jokes about brotherly love and buggery. The "frat-boys" were questioned as to why they wanted a fraternity. They replied, in essence, that they wished to provide an outlet for their humanitarian impulses. The fraternity, they said, would be a community service orpaniz. atlon. The "frat-boys" stated And, on a personal note, I would be glad to discuss the nature of art at any time. If you insist on talking about it, Remember that the audiences' role is no less importrnt than the \\ ' 7 SIR ''I :./.: '$-p1C.1< MY o<:.E' their desire to give NP.w College a better image in the community. In other words, they wanted to represent themselves as New College". Are these "harmless geeks" who want to get together in dark rooms, flail eachother with wooden paddles, and call eachother fun names like "sir" and "plebe?" T h e reality here is that if those people really want to do community service work there is already in existence the New Colleg e Community Service League. In Andy Kroll's recent articles, he mentions the social aspect of the fraternity. H e also expresses h i s belief that "brotherhood encourages tolerance and respect for others from different backgrounds." S igma Chi Delta, as Andy Kroll himself stated, will pick members according to their own hiph standards. This leads to exclusion of certain members of the community from the frat. Discrimination and by other name are still unjust and not conducive to a sense of community. A sense of community is, as many of us will agree, something Colleg e desperately needs. Something else that must be set straight is Kroll's bemoaning the fraternity beine viewed as an "Animal House ort; anization." Yes there i s a basis for this view. I t rests in recent New Colleg e history. Students from last year and two years a g o can easily the the dr11.nken tor:a parties and the ensuin g destruction of personal a n d comm unity property. The people responsible were friends and peer s of r. Kroll. Luckily, however, mos t of t h e people in-volved are no here a history of events that had to do with recent New College past. Fo doubt because Lance has been a student here for less than a year. Fis analogies are more absurd than beleivable. One wonders if he only advocates tolerance for people like himself. The same can be said of the "frat-boys." Their aim is to enforce the presence of a Fraternity. As a group they are a very small minority. However, they are outnumbered by people who like College as it is without a frat. Any one who remembers the property damage and small scale terrorism of the psuedo-Fraternity, the A.P., feels that it's more of a service not to have a "brotherhood" at ew College. The main point of this article is not to inflame old but rather to put things lnto their perspective. ,, "\"\-\eRe 1-\D e: xc..ef'\1 Tl 0 \lAO><.


SKIMMED MILK By Mimir Cul-de-Sac Mimir would like to begin this week's review with a friendly reminder: the chewing of electrical cords in Center is strictly prohibited. Campus Police would also discourage excessive consumption of majik markers. A veritable plethora of cultural events lately; most noted: Laundromat I.aundroma t. A well done wash.

GANDHI: the WOI ld's best lawJW By Randall Lanier "Gandhi" debuted in Atlanta on January 15, 198), Martin Luther Kin Jr.'s birthday, creating a storm of controversy and praise unrivalled since the release of "Reds" over a year a go. Producer/ Director Sir Richard Attenborough ("Oh! What a Lovely War," "Young Winston, "A Bridge Too Far") spent over twenty years on "Gandhi," which depicts the last 56 years of Mohandas K. Gandhi's turbulent life (1869-1948). The movie begins with Gandhi's assination by a fanatic Hindu, enraged with Gandhi for attempting to unite religious beliefs and prevent the separation of Pakistan. Then it clicks back in time to South Africa, where Gandhi, a Y?ung, rather.cocky lawyer, to against discrimination. He succeeds to a large degree through active and peaceful resistance. Gandhi returns to India where he quickly becomes the people's champion. They call him Mahatma (Great Soul) or Bapu (father). The British repeatedly beat, murder and arrest Gandhi's non-vioient supporters, raising howls of protest from the "civilized" world. Gandhi guides India to freedom in the most effective peace movement in history. He never held an official office yet India's leaders sought ad: vice on all important matters from this little brown man in a loincloth (homespun). Some how it is all very believable if often humorous. Perhaps the fact that everything in the movie actually happened adds to the film's credibility! -REAGENT FEBRUARY 28, s ....._.nrs ass s ..-a One of the most powerful elements in "Gandhi"--atleast to the uninitiated--is surprise. It is almost beyond be!'ief, for example, that scores of men would deliberately walk without "even raising an arm to fend off a blow" into a wall of club-wielding British lackeys sent to protect the Dharasona Salt Works. "Gandhi"s screenwriter John spoke for most Westerners when he said: ''I had a vague notion of Gandhi, a man whose ideas I too admired but felt were wildly unrealistic in a world as harsh as the one I had grown up in. And I was certain that no one in the Detroit of myb .oyhood, or my adopted town in semi-rural England would want to pay to see a film about an old man who sat on a rug in a loincloth and spouted words about peace and passive resistance." After some research Briley realized "that Gandhi was not impractical, not idealistic. His ideas were forged in painful experience, a growth or perception earned from a life far harsher than anything I had ever known." Briley, like A ttenbor ough and almost everyone else, came to respect Gandhi to the point on is o vous when watching 56 years pass by in the three hours of coherent drama. Ben Kingsley, a half-Indian British actor, does a remarkable job in his portrayal of Gandhi. The physical resemblance is extraordinary and the character true to the Mahatma. "Gandhi" with fourteen principal characters, uniformed men from six different branches of the police and armed services, 1,000 mourners (each costumed to match exactly their historical who paced all day the Mahatma's bier), Home Guard .. and an organ lzed crowd of 89,500 who were in for the occasion, must sure y form part of cinematic history." The cast listed here was for one scene. In addition an estimated 285,000 onlookers were present. In total almost a million people took part in the making of "Gandhi". The meticulously constructed sets, factual settings and photography wouid sat the most picky critic. The most valid criticism of the film that it perhaps too But nothing else would really have worked when the goal is to accurately portray such a man as Mahatma Gandhi. Of all the movies to appear year, "Gandhi" is probably effective, the most in the most significant. an interest in pol peace, resistance or definiteiy see It might make a




FOOD & DRINK BY Crystal Glasses & Cookie Cutter Next time you go to Publix pick up some mushrooms, some scallions (the skinny green onions), some yogurt, and your four favorite fruits that are within your budget. Kiwis are a good buy at this time of year. Now, when it's time to prepare your meal slice, pare, and etc. a small amount of your four favorite fruits into bite-sized pieces. Put them on a plate. Arrange them decoratively in order to please the eye as well as the palate. Open your mushrooms carefully. Mushrooms will keep for quite some time in the refridgerator if you wrap them back up in the cellophane. Don't be put off if they start to turn brown. Mushrooms get more and more flavorful as they age. If the slimy texture of an older mushroom makes you gag, cook it. Remove 6 mushrooms from your carefully opened package. Slice off the stems. If you feel guilty about throwing away the stems, put them back in the package to reserve them for another use or to throw them away with the rest of the stems and dirt when you've used up the rest of the package, or are cleaning out your fridge at the end of the term. Melt about 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Put the mushroom caps in the melted butter cut side down. Put a lid on top. Now, mince the hell out of one of your scallions. Scal lions keep a long time in the fridge, too, and they take up 1ess space than a bag of ye11ow onio n s Put them in Jots of things. Anyway, pu t t h e mjnced scallion i n a cup wit h some garlic (if you like it and have it) and some soy sauce and some thyme if you have any or any other herb if you don't. Alternatively, mix some herb salt with some soy sauce. Herb salt is a great way to spark up your food if you're not inclined towards keeping lots of seasonings around. Back to the mushrooms. Lift the lid and turn over the mushrooms. Put some of the scallion/ soy sauce stuff atop each mushroom. Cover them again and let them cook some more while you toast 2 slices of bread. Put 1 slice of toast on the plate with the fruit and arrange the on the toast. Put the other piece of toast on top. Get yourself a dish and put some yogurt in it. Between bites of your delicious mushroom sandwich you could cip pieces of fruit in the Y0:rt and eat them. Recommended wines for this MILLER continued ling for summer teaching jobs in Tampa.
