Levitan felt bolh of these items promoted alcohol, and wa:;; scared that the Semi-Normal in particular centered around alcohol. Gilda Saakes, one of the tuclent sponsors of the Semi Normal, stated strongly that she never made alcohol the em phasis of that party. Camilla Mortensen uggcsteclthat Levitan was people into not advert.ising alcohol instead just telling them not to. Leviran did not think there was any pressure on stu dents on lhe SAC search committee to ac<...-ept Mark Breimhorsl. He did state lhat he talked to members of the Resident Coun selor search committee about t.heir d1oice to reopen the search instead of accept Breim.horst for that position Levitan said that he did so after a member of that search conunittee told Levitan that the conunittee's reasons for rejecting Breimhorst were vague. Levitan also stated that he fell all se;uch com mittees should offer two choices. In the 3:30 meeting, Levitan said he is, "kinda walk ing a tightrope" between the wishes of administration and students. As for lhe suggestion raised that Student Affairs be split into one for each academic program, Levitan slated that there are, "not enough people working in SA to work on the Sarasota program for either program." He did not feel the campus needed two separat e student affairs cUrectors, hut was not against l:he idea of having two assistant directors, one for New College, one for USF. Some students, including NCSA President Ed Moore and SAC representative Bryan Lumpkins, thanked Levitan for holding the meeting. Levitan said, "I like to know more about what people are thinking. From The University Police Parking lot #3 (the one behind 1 Iamilton Center) is go ing to he repaved and resl!iped ove this summer. Addition ally, some other parking l ots will be worked on, as time per mits. Any students that want to leave cars on-campus for all or part of the summer need to sec Sgt.

A Lesson on Hair i2a'fm<'.da '8cuu;ma-------------l have been at New r:ollege for three years, and l have been asked more than twice about my hair. l am not upset that my peers are asking questions. It shows that some peupk would like to lea1 n more about another race I just would like to say it once and not a hundrl'd times Still, I would rather you ask m<..: than ask a woman at l'ublix who may just spout obscenities at you. l am not the most knowledgeable person on Ulack hair, hut I will try to tcll you what l know from experience. So, this is Ray' s little lesson on Black hair. P<..:1haps you will karn a little somctlung about 1xopk to boot. Relaxed/Penned I When :1 Black woman get." ,1 perm, sh<..: gets hc:r hair relaxed Black h:11r l1as a naturalcuJI or k111k to it. Initially, a creamy suhstst r<.:sults. This lasts fo1 about :) months. Just as with the perm, the natural hair gmws at the root. With the perm, only the routs arc 1etouched hut with the cuily perm. the entire process must he rcrx:ated );P! l'.lgl' 5 \Veal'ed This is a process hy which a Black \\oman can add more hair to her hail. It can ell her h in the fmm of braids or just plain hai1 Weave hail can h<.: ho1.s<.:, synthetiC, 01 real hair. In the of hraidc;, it ts usually braided with he1 natural hair. If she would like to hav e hair th a t resembles penned or straightened hair. the we of and p1 oces:scs. J get dillt'rent 1esults my hair is dil l'erc:nt. We may call them something different, hut it i.., the same tl1i ng I guess the real point of this is that not all Blat'k people arc the same. \X'e arc like white people in that re spect. We do not have the same hair \\'c do not have the same faP1ily background. All Black people arc special. All people are special. Earll individual should he approached as an individual. So, the next time you think about asking a Bl tck woman about ilc1 hai1, 1ememht !by's little lesson ami usl' you1 kncm il'dgc '' 1sdy ,\/(f)'

'tDI Page 4 Last Word '" ?1Wf/Ut44 -------------lois is our last issue We want to thank y o u f o r readin g this little paper over the course of the semester and wf: hope you got something out of it. ext emest er, we're going to try something just a little different. We'll be stalling up the paper with a new name and a larger staff We've agr eed to merg e with the Orifice, and together we'll be putting our a weekly newspaper. Whenever I've mentioned this to individuals over the past few weeks I've mostly been mer wtrh incredul o us stares followed by gasps, followed by shout of, ''Good God the humanity!" People have been of the opinion that we should simply P..\;re taken over the Orifice and made them write for us, or that the formats and tones of the two papers are incom patible, or that it won't work and we' ll split up again anyway A brief word, then, on what 1 think of this First off, I am not in the habit of performing corpo rate takeovers Going up to somebody and telling them Write for us the way we want you to or else, does not work. Nobody would have agreed to anything and we would r e main separate next semester, and probably the semester after that. Going up to someone and saying, "Let':-. work u:-.u ally gets better results. Second, tfl thought the formats wen: incompatihk, I wouldn' t be workmg towards consolidating them. Our style:-. are different but there is a difference between being different and being ir,Kompatible. I started writing for the Urijlce I ended up writing for Yo!. Believe me when l say that from one can go in the other with no problem. Third, whether or not it'll work and we'll stay to gether, I don't know. If it doesn 't, no loss, we're right back where we started from. If it does, though, I think the result will be worth it. We can combine staff and budgets not only to increase our news coverage, but also tu improve the qual ity of that coverage. To be blunt, this college doesn t need two newspapers to report the same amount of new:. for only 500 people. I don't know how to put it more simply. We are dedicated to creating a paper that will he a voice for the New College students, that will be something more than an underground rag for only a select few that will be something that can become a lasting feature of the college and be around long after we' re gone. The Orijlce st;tfi' feel the same way. My own sense of what I want this paper to he will not allow il to be inferior. Furthermore, Leslie Shaffer entrusted her project to me I h;we no intention of simply l etting all of her work and effort go to waste hy putting out a rag instead of a respectable paper. Another brief note Even with the merger, we ll still be looking fur more writer:next semesteJ. Thi .-. iJ' you noticed the staff box on pag<.: two of every issue l'u.' h;l.'> been written by two lO three people This is too mud1 work for so few people to do welkly for an entire semester We' ll havC' more people next eme:-.ter, but people arc likely to lose int erest in writing and do something cbe, or in a year or two they'll graduate. We need new people to share the worklo;ld, we need new people to bring in fre h ideas and approaches, we need new people to run the paper when the rest of us leave I m n o t asking for o ffers fur writers now. We' ll hit you all up at the start ol next semester. l m ju s t asking that you if you 're inwrestcd, keep us in mmcl. We can only be as long as th ere are enough people to put it together lf not, you can always read the Tcwn mr. Which brings m<.: to the las t part of my little spiel. Over the course of the semester, many people have contlih uted their own articles and items to us, and ,,. e appreciate it. Thanks, then, to Kevin Arlyck, Mark C :lttell, Danicllc Chynoweth, Anthony Crisafi Ari Goelman, MinL tcr j
