WHO IS ZORN? WHAT'S A LEMMA? Zorn's Lemma, for the unititiated, is like Planck's Constant in that Zorn, 1 ike Planck, was a person, and a lemma, like a constant, is a thing. Zorn's Lemma is:If every totally ordered subcollection of a non-empty col lection X has an upper bound in X, th en X has a maximal element. It is a formulation ofZermelo's Axiom of Choice, which is: given a collection finite or infinite of sets A, B, C, .. it is possible to construct a set X by choosing one member from A to belong to X, one member from B to belong to X and so on for all the rest. Zorn has faded into utter obscurity as he is not even mentioned in the Encyclopedia Britannica. by Jono Miller Tuesday's Pizza marked another success in ew Colle$e's recent series of informal happenings, It l.Uldoubted 1 y ranked with Joe Ferrandino's Sock-Hop the first year SEC elections, those luminous balls of light, Barry Sheingold'sdin ner party, and the Media Exhibition as a major second-term event. The drab, testimonral seating arrangement was offset by and upset by John Kieinis wltty capers. Beer flowed like expensive grape juice, as myriad tables waited reverently for.their chance to receive the crusty communion. Here'swhat one party goer had to say, "I was with a party of six, and we en joyed considerable cost benefits. We consumed eight pi2zas, only one of which was plain. On a regular night, we would hav'e paid over $2 per person (even on a two for one night we would have paid over a dollar); but thanks to the pi2za party deal, we paid only 75 and got 2 free drinks besides, "On a personal basis, you reduceciny cost/slice ratio from 8/slice ontwofor one night to 5/slice at the party. Thanks again." Spontaneous dancing broke out later, and was extinguished only when the last bus had left from a remote parking lot Those who stayed till the end agreed that it had been a fulfilling affair. "DefinitP ly an enjoyable diversion which juxtaposed casual and serious pizza eaters for the delight of all," was one comment I made up about the party, and I couldn't agree more. In Search of Politiks by Dennis Saver As the Chief Justice remarked at the last SEC meeting, the Student CoUit had met four times since its election; last night it met again bringing the gr and total to five. They have so far done more :in a week and a half than had been don.e in the first fomteen weeks of the year. Most of the meeting concerned constitutional quibbling( the Ethereal Elections) and which ended in delineating &erne hazy precedents and portions ofthe constitution. The constitution that was being cl:uified has existed l.Ulch anged (ex<..e]X for the Student Chair amendment last year) since Se]X. 1968. Which brings me to my first question. Whatever happened to the propos e d constitution that Col.Ultry and Joseworked out early first term but was killed by several town meetings, legendary beasts that tend to return to the scene of their crimes several times before marauding onward? Although to judge by the jukebox s e 1 e c t ions this school hasn' t changed in longer than two and one half years, I think we might agree that perhaps time as eroded the edges of the document a bit. For instance, there is no provision for an individual to appeal anything to thE SC exce]X infractions of the student code, nor is there a provision that the defendent has the right to be confronted by his accu sors. There is nothing to prohibit the SEC from m a.king any or all of its decisions in executive session. The Student Code has not been reviewed in some time, the result being that regulations such as intervisitation (no member of the opposite sex m student rooms between ll p. m. and 7 a. m, weekdays and 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on weekends) are still on the books, and offenders are theoretically liable to prosecution (see p. 20 of Student Handbook 1970-1971. ) Plans are in the works for a "Legislative Weekend" for e xtensive constitutional review, etc. Feb 20-22. It sol.Ulds like a good idea, that us students, who are now completely self-governing, did you know, should get our collective Continued on page 3 VOL II N0.9 JANUARY 29, 1971 sec ..................................................... sec IF IT'S A FARCE WE'LL MAKE THE APPROPRIATE SCENE by Malcolm Jones Twelve bourse b e fore the scheduled elections Monday of the first year SEC representatives, an emergency meeting of Student Court was held. They ruled on a petition by Kim McCutcheon to overturn the Wednesday night decision by the SEC to not accept first year election results. At 12:30, after open discussion and a closed session, the court supported Kim's petition: the election immediately validates those elected and the old SEC has nc voice in seating or refusing to seat those newly elected. Also, the Court explaineq any appeal on the elections should have gone to the previous Student Court and not the new one. The only constitutional chachannelleft open to the candidates would be through recall, Monday night saw another court meeting, this time to rule on a petition to l.Ul seat Kim McCutcheon and Jono Miller on the grol.Ulds that those candiates had "ac tion coalition" pronted beside their name on the ballot. The constitutional groun.d of this petition were that putting party affiliation on the ballot is not sanctioned anywhere 1n the constitution. A g a in the court heard discussion, then held a closed session. Unlike Sl.Ulday night, the people on EDUCATION by Kacie Crisp opposing sides did not intermix as freely and the atmosphere was much more tense. The outcome was obviously most important to those involved. When asked why he and several others were pressing to the two students, Fred Silverman replied, "We're doing this to insure that someone has no chance hereafter to us e a posit ion for their personal benefit! This was in reference to Kim McCutcheon acting as election supervisor as well as Il.UlDing in the election. Kim, chatting with friends, said that she was more than willing to go along with the awaited ruling by the court, but hoped that a new e 1 e c t ion would not be held as this would be verging on an ex post facto decision. The Court soon reopened and declared !that Kim M c Cut c h e on and Jono Miller were no longer seated members of the SEC and that a new election would be held to fill those positions. The brief silence was broken by a very audible "Jh, shit!" on the part of one spectator, As the p e o p 1 e f il e d o u t one girl seemed to sum up the general feeling wher: she said, "I thought everybody showed a tetallack of faith and l.Ulderstanding on all sides of the question." PROF NEEDED Why doesn't New College have anyone to teach education? Student interest is acknowledged by sources as varied as Chuck Derrick, Dr. David Smillie, and Jim Feeny. Perennial lack of money, former lack of interest, and the exclusively academic origins of NC constitute a partial answer. Students interested in teaching and other facets of education will continue to be academic orphans unless they articulate their needs. On this point, all sources agree. Organizing to better represent this need is the pwpose of a meeting at 8 pm Monday in fron of the fishbowl. NC students and grads, volunteers and employees of BookerBayhaven, will discuss the possibility of eventually co-ordinating Booker worl< with teacher training. College vs. Reality John Doyle sees the issue as more than idle requests for a subject students thi.1k they might be interested in. "I think the college has go recognize that the kind of kids we're attracting are interested in innovative education. We're going to have to do something about it, or make it explicit in the catalogue that we don't." Jim Robertson, a fourth-year student now employed fulltime at Booker, sees N C's decision--either to continue not to have education offered, or to initiate a program--in a -larger perspective. "It is a cultural, social move (to initiate a program), something the school should do if it's really interested in solving the problems of this worlld. We've got to cure some of the problems, rather than just chronicle what the problems are." The first reason cited by both Smillie and Jim Feeney for New College's not offering anything now is money. "The first problem is financial, says Smillie. Nor is the tradition of not previously offering the subject helping. "We don't have Continued on page 3 HERE SHE COMES ..

The Miss Sarasota Pageant, sponsored by the Sarasota Jaycees, will be staged on Saturday, March 13 at the Civic Center Exhibition Hall. Pageant competition includes swim suit, evening gown, and a 2 l/2 to 3 minute talent presentation. All applicants will appear before the Miss Sa rasota Pageant screening committee and be advised of their acce]Xance. Applicants are now being acce(:ted. Miss Sarasota 1971 will receive a scholarship and her Miss Florida Pageant wardrobe. The Miss Florida Pageant will be held in Orlando from July 4 to July ll. Scholarships are aloo awarded the first and second Il.UlDers up. As the folder put out by the pageant says: "To seek the title of Miss America is a rich and rewarding, thoroughly bene ficial experience. You must really want to take that first step toward the title--and once you have,youwillbegin immediately to realize the benefits of being a "Miss America girl"--benefits which will multiply throughout your life time .... Taking that first step at the Local Pageant, where it all begins, can be equally rewarding. You grow a little with each new experience and each new challenge l.Ultil eventually you have matured into the person you dream of becoming. This is the wish of the Miss America Pageant for each yoWlg woman who participates. Entrants must be of good character and possess poise, p e r s on a 1 it y intelligenc charm, and beauty of face and figure.

One of their first official acts was to vote dogs off campus, effective third term. The problem will be con sidered the eighth week of this term to see if any changes made will w a r r ant changing the decision. Chairman Goldberg also announced new committee appointments and the creation of a few new committees, notably a finance committee chaired by Tad Kohler to study the college's financial si tuation and a party committee to organize school parties. That committee will be co-chaired by Dougy Freeman, Lee Harrison, Johnny Klein, and C.D. Webb. The new Breadboard annol.Ulced that all grants from the student activities fee m-ust be followed by a report from the recipients telling exactly where the money has gone. The Breadboard also gran ted the New College radio station,WNCF $400 for new equipment, notably a mixing board and possibly new turntables. This grant was $200 less than the original amo1.m.t granted the station at the term's beginning. The matter was held up un.til the new SEC could vote on it and by then, the Breadboard 'sfl.Ulds could not meet the original $600 agreed upon. A good portion of the meeting was spent discussing the possible location of a geodesic dome in which media shows and other meetngs might be held. The question was tabled l.Ultil a site can be agreed on. The meeting lasted two and a hi! hours. $90,000 To Go by Julie Morris M on d a y m or n in g, we were still $90, 000 short of the one million dollars the Ford Fol.Uldation has challenged to raise in 1970, deadline extended toFeb.3. In return, Ford will award us a quarter of a millions dollars, and the cbancetotry in 1971. This annual fund raising and matching dependent on the previ ;)US year's success is set up over a four .year period ending in 1973. Over the same four year period, Ford asks thatNC find 500 associates--people who pledge $1000 annuall}' for three years. One anticipated gift that wouldhalve the $90,000 figure and other money is ar riving from associates, students (Colloquium 71 deposited $1500 toward the chal lenge) and parents. Committees chaired by Nelson Coons of Ft. Lauderdale and !Leonard Zieve of Highland Park a re working with parents in their areas. The m on e y will be used to pay off '70 and '71's deficits and to covergeneral expenses of the college. If we don't receive the grant, rumor is that scholarships admissions policy, and new faculty hiring plans will be affected. BIX there is a chance that Ford will New College the money in the4-l 'ratio even if we are short. At any rate, we'll know next Wednesday. The Eo rly Bird Gets The Worm The Early Bird Show, hosted by Phil Bird, has made the transformation from soft rock to classical music at 7-8:25 a.m for the early risers at New. The Early Bird caught the worm and decided t h a t it was like a soft rock. He decided that to start the day with a soft rock w as a classical example of inconsistent listening. Since the EB Show is WNCR's most consistent pleasant listening show, (for that time of the morning) inconsistent soft rocks would not be tolerated. With support from Von Baeyer, and scornfrom Fischer and Rohr, The Bird decided to go classical. The result?? An amazing on e and a half hours of mellow, me 1 odiG morning music, media :ind meteorology. Special up to date news broadcasts at 7: 45 and 8:15 feature new news of Nev; ano ;stimulating scenes of the city and state not to mention national and internation: al items.

2 PLAYBILL To people who love plays and hate paying a lot of money for tickets and don't enJOY showing little old ladies to their seats and missing half the performances. One can see six or ten performances for a dollar apiece. One goes to the Asolo box office and buys a student subscription ticket. It can be used to make reservations for the third tier, cheapsea$ on Sunday through Thursday performances or can be used on a standby basis to ge t any seat at any performance. This term four plays, to deal with a child bearing a strong men tal resemblance to a parsnip; Candida-a comedy about marriage by George Ber nard Shaw; A Comedy of Errors--an eal' ly Shakespearean farce; and Born Y ester post World War II coin e dy of social significance. Next term will be Love for Love, The Subject Was Roses, Aunt, and Our Town. ]u I y 16 Arthur opit's Indians will be added. To some sixort""en will seem incon -venient numbers. You either go to some things more than once, or you split your tic!ket with someone else. This last is illegal, but workable. Now that the whole electoral mess is (almost) over, it is time, as they fo draw up a balance sheet of results and prospects. One of the most am a zing things about the election was it politicization and the student interest displayed in it. To me, it signifies that a rather strange cultural transformation of 1the College has occurred. The medieval and the baroque have gone out of style 1 and in certain senses, the laissez-! air e system has come in (accompanied bythe modern brand of various strains of utopian socialism--communes, etc. ) Electioneering is in bad taste, and having engaged in it, there is a strange aftertaste in my mouth. The best thing that could happen is that we move beyond that absurd bourgeoise depravity of ad vert ising, and start to develop a few political issues. So on to what needs to be done. Haying more or less emerged from feudal into capitalist forms, the remnants of the transitional period should be wiped out. Students should move quickly to consolidate the various gains that have been handed to us, and should move to establish new ones. We should establish a more efficient machinery for the studem government and see if (perchance) we can get something like the equivalent of Derrick's office to come under student control. We should assert our right to decision shariD.g powr ZORN'S LEMMA JANUARY 29, 1971 OPERA PLAYS AT A SOLO by Dan Raff The Tourneau Opera Company is a traveling group of six or seven singers along with various support and management personnel,not unlike the players in Hamlet. Theystaie genuine opera in the places they travel to, with a four-hand(i. e. two instrument} piano .accompaniment. They are playing here for a month, a week each of La Boheme, (Pucinni), The Abduction from Seratio(Mozart) The Barber of Seville, (Rossini)and sannah (Adventures with the elders y Carlisle Floyd. Texts are in English. Curtain 1 s '8:30 and NC students can have seats unsold by 8. Having seen very little staged opera, I will not really review this until next week when there is something to compare it to. In general, though, some jumping of psychical distance" is required. Plots tend toward melodrama, which is a lot easier swallowed when you're only listening to the record and can be doing something else too, or else arE attending upon a particularly stunning voice, of which the company has none. It's also easier to swallow when you can't understand the words--love songs have to talk about something. Most of all, it's hard to imagine people thinking and speaking in song, and much more so when you watch it than when you merely listen and imagine some visual for the impression. Boheme, for instance, ends with the heroine who is dying of conswr ption center stage singing music of ravishing beaW:y lying flat on her back, which takes more strength than you might imagine. But it's an art form, you know--something con structed to be experienced, and one has to surrender a little critical autonomy to get anything out of someone else's creative mind. And these are recreated images. So view it as campy or go through the effort to it as real. B.ut by all means If's fun. Mozart typifies graceful yet undecadent gen1us, the Barber lS a workhorse ofthE operatic repertory, and Susannah is of all reports interesting and quite powerful. These opportunities should be supported. LETTERS Dear Zorn, I think you forgot that professional librarians are also faculty when you sent out your questionnaire on tutorials---at least, I didn't receive one. For the record, I am offering three tu torials this term: Latw I Greek I Greek II-Plato It might also be of interest to the students and faculty to know that the Library is now putting new books as they are processed on shelves outsde the Cata loging Room at the top of the stairs. The books are ready for circulation and they may be checked out at the desk downstairs. It is presently planned to leave the books on these shelves for aboW: a week and then to shelve them and replace them with another new group. Corinne Wilson Librarian Assoc. Prof. in cncy. ADd we should uaure aDd aaert the total independence of the students in the running of their own social community. Of course, horror stories can be told Like increasing students and fees a n d not increasing scholarships. The P e t er Frisch drama mess. The allocation of new positions. The out-of-the-blue Ac.ademic Reviews of last summer. But that's not important. The important thi ng to remember is that College person'nel, teachers, the bureaucracy, and we the students, do not have a community of interests. Precisely because we have no inertial inte rest in the College as it is, we are free to make it what we damn well please:" The magic words are/ Up Against the Wall, MotherfU:ck er/ This is a stick-up". We're free to make this College and ourselves whatever we please, and if it doesn't work, to leave it. Of course, the rest qf the College will resist or try to co-opt, as they have always so successfully done. Elmendorf is a past master at this, and so is the faculty to a lesser extent. ( cf. last year's May Strike). I don't know if they' r e liberal or Machiavellian or both. Don't matter. Our interests lie not with a "fine instltution" a "Harvard of the South" or an experimental college. They lie with ourselves. If we wnat something, we must always be ready to get it for ourselves. Dear Zorn, I'm pissed off at the guys who are running this college. So far as I can tell, they have forced out two good teachers for sponsoring ISP's that did not involve academic work. In my opinion, N. C. as an education :should offer more than academics; it should give people the opportunity to "go out" and JUSt do something and learn it without reading boring books and writing :bullshit papers. While high schools around the country are taking a step in a relevant dire ction by instituting vocational training program good ole N. C. is going backwards and abolishing its own. We've got to keep them from making N. C. even more of an isolated, irrelevant, ivory tower. Andy Holyoke.

3 Military Barbarians Sur,ound Us Perhaps you've sometime wondered JUst to whom the names of the roads t o the north and east of the East C a m pus (General Spaatz, General Arnold, etc.) referred?. What stalwart heroes out of Sarasota's murky past have been permanently enshrined by auto traffic The unfortunate probablJ an s we r has been suggested in Noam Chomsky's new book American Power and the New Mandarins (especially p. 210}; he recounts at the end of World War II "a final gr atuitous act of barbarism, trivial in the context of what had Just taken place( the two atom bombs), a thousand -p 1 an e raid launched after the Japanese s u rrender had been announced but, technically, before it was officially "Arnold wanted as big a finale as possible, hoping that USASTAF cou 1 d hit the Tokyo area in a 1000-plane mission: the Twentieth Air Force had put up 853 B-29's and 7ff fighters on 1 August, and Arnold thuught the n u m be r could be rounded out by calling on Doolittle's Eighth Air Force. Spaatz sti 11 wanted to drop the thi1'd atom bomb on Tokyo but thought that battered ci t y poor target for conventional bombing; 1nstead, he proposed to divide his forces between seven targets. Arnold was apologetic about the unfortunate mixup on the 11th and, act:epting Spaatz' amendment, assured him that his orders had been 'coordinated with my superiors all the way to the top. 'The teleconference ended with a fervid 'Thank God' from Spaatz, .. From the Marianas, 449 B-29's went out for a daylight strike on the 14th, and that with top officers standing by at Washmgton and Guam for a last-minute cancellation, 372 more were air borne. Seven planes dispatched on special bombing missions by the 509th Group brought the number of B-2 9 s to 828, and with 186 fighter escorts dispatched, USASTAF passed Arnold's goal with a total of 1014 aircraft. There were no losses, and before the last B29 returned President Truman announced the unconditional surrender of Jap an." For the reaction of a victim, Chomsky quotes from Makoto Oda's article, "The of 'Meaningless Death'": "In the afternoon of August 14,1945, thousands of people died during a protracted and intensive aerial bombard ment of an &JSeD&l iD Osaka. I wu a witness to the trasedy. I aaw do&em of subjects literally consumed by service to a government that had already decided to accept the Pots dam Declaration's demand for u n conditional surrender. The only r e as on these people died was because they happened to have been in the arsenal or environs at the. time of the air After what seemed an eternity of terror and anguish, we who were fortunate e-. nough t-o survive emerged from our shel ter$. We found the corpses--and the .leaflets which American bombers had dropped CJVer the destruction. The leaflets proclaimed in Japanese, "Your Government has surrendered. The war is over!""

John Doyle attributes this vacuum to something else: "New College has been unwil ling to make a commitment. Money Is Available don!Im doesn't believe the money line. "In fact, there is money. They JUst t want their _own. pet proJects hurt. All these fiefdoms want more coverage in their subJect.

The tdeal 1s to have three people in each subject area, two at a minimum. At the don't have that anywhere in the social except in history and economics this year." Especially needed, says Smillie, is an anthropologist as selected in the student poll a second psychologist for the currently "very weak" department. "There is a press mg tleed to support the programs we already have. 11 Feene_y traces reasons to origins of the college. NC was designed to provide the _traditiOnal hberal arts education." For this reason, "we've never had any pre-profes SIOnal prol!;rams." He too cites weaknesses in existing disciplines to be relieved for the benefit of the "basic program in social sciences." To this end, anthropology is a "core discipline" and education is "peripheral. Activist Counter-Balance _Robertson finds this emphasis on traditional academics even more reason to add educatlOn, '.'an activist discipline, one small counterbalance to all these people thinking and talkmg about it.'' Despite ackno:vledged student interest, there are what Feeney calls "good a r g u ments for not a of education on campus." Basis of his reasoning i s that the estabhshed education department--and its individual members--perpetuate rather than reform the system. After being tra_ined to be the newly trained teacher goes to work i n the that re1nforces such Incompetence. Knocking education courses in general Feeney Cites the ex_ample of the four-unit course which teaches prospectives little mo;e than tu:n theu backs on the class while writing on the board. that was easie_r to get would merely enable students to be more quickly abso_rbed 1nto the system, continues Feeney. Once certified they could become apathetic. Fight Absorption Into System Rather than make it easier for them to reach the "I wish the system would change but it's a job" mentality, he says, make students fight the system even to l!;et into it. string of courses still to go toward getting his credentials despite two ye:ir's expenence 1n the schools, Robertson sees it differently. "New College could right now give teacher certification. But they're not interested in the real nitty gritty of doing it. _Wit}:l the nu mber os students enthusiastic and qualified by graduation from NC, Jim believes, "the school should be handing out certification l1ke M'n' Mif so these kids can go out and get a JOb. If they need music education, let's call it that so they can go and teach. If they're not good, they'll get fired. But let's give them a chance. According to Doyle and Derrick, before NC can award credentials it must gain the state accreditation necessary to do so. False Hopes? Dr. Smillie's hesitation about hiring a professor for education is due to qualms about not covering that field adequately. He cites a need for three distinct people to cover the department: one to supervise classroom activities (the official teacher-training program) a second for educational theory, and "probably a third providing courses to lead to teaching certification." He calls this "not unreasonable as a long-term proJect." But he cautions students, when and if one faculty member is hired, of being too bopeful that all demand for edu cation programs will immediately be-satisfied. But what do you do if you're at N C now and you're interested in teaching? Everyone interviewed stressed the importance of practical experience. Feeney points out that the opportunities now available at Booker Bayhaven, which have potential f or much more teaching experience than the average school of education. At some of the latter, he says, students would actually be discouraged from spending time with children in the classroom. Reiterating his concerns about a traditional education person, Feeney admits the 1m portance for "people to get into the school, to get feedback on what they're doing." Thil feedback, now lacking at NC, could be provided by an anthropologist or soci ologist. He and Dan Ross have been doing "some, but not enough." With their other re sponsibilities, "we haven't been able to commit ourselves." For othe_r ex_perie_nces, Feeney recommends opportunities off-campus. Psooibilities are developmg m Philadelphia and Chicago. New students are already involved in a Boston project. Having done it, Robertson also emphasizes the importance of volunteer work iro t"h"' schools. For the number of students already working in the schools, ''what is needed is not someone here to plan projects, but someone to allow students to do what they plan "Students should be prepared to volunteer enormous amounts of their time. They're le::J.rning and tbere1S nOt a lot Of money in publiC edUCatiOn. II Smillie, too, etnphasizes the current need for someone studnets in the classroom call work with. "it is important for students to try out interests in education. There "t!V'en a part time person could be a help. Also currently available are some courses relevant to teaching. Says Smillie, "As it stands now, there are various fields you can use in education. One of these is developmental psychology. It is important to understand how children think and behave, but it is not sufficent alone. Sociology is important, too. The possibilities of going straight through the system and getting a credential with graduation are slim. John Doyle has a word of advice for studrets with that as their goal: "Split. Robertson's advice to first-year students interested is theoretically possible. Teach ing requirements could be met with a maJOr in education, "But nobody1s sponsoring it' Without an education maJor, students can "find out what the requirements are, fine an advisor who will the course work, have it labelled so, and have him vouch for you in front of the credentiailing officials. It should be possible, Jim continues ''but the point is, it isn't. Doyle and Feeney agree that the credential requirements can be met through the summer and night courses, through USF and other schools. But neither recommends it. Spending a little more than one more year and getting an MAT (Masters in Teaching) would give prospective teachers more edge in the shrinking JOb market, a sound liberal arts background, and less hassle of credentials. "Get a prestigious educational background with the MAT, then go start a free school," says Doyle. 3 Lib Symposi11m Within the last fewyears, the Women's Movement has grown tremendously as m or e w o m e n raise serious questions about issues that concem them. Florida Presbyterian College Women 's Liberation Group would like to offer aSym posium March 19-21, 1971 on its c a m pus in St. Petersburg, JDeans of meeting the t\xpressed need sof an increasing number of women1 not only on its campus, bu: throughout the nation. The goals of the Symposium are many and will be vie wed differently according to the needs of each individual. The broader goals we hope to achieve are: --to raise certain vital questions concerning the legitimacy role, and stat us of worn en today, --to create an atmosphere of an open awareness and understanding throughwhich viable solutions may be explored, --to provide a dynamic vehicle, for both men and women, for creative change in society, and --to suggest methods of survival, selffulfillment, and alternatives to the tradi roles and status of women(and consequently men). Workshops discussing such relevant issues as women's sex roles, women's psych ological oppression, oppression of B l a c k women, women in politics, and professional women plus lectures featuring speakers from along the Eastern seaboard will be held. To estimate crowds and to provide accomodations, pre-registration is required. Both male and female are encouraged to attend.

Pretty basic stuff: GIVE AND FAKE The "Plastic Jocks", sometimes operating under the facetious title "The New College Varsity Basketball Team", is pre sently caught in a spirited, one way battle for last place in the City Men's League Yet the team's 8-0 record is only a primer, a mere indication of things to come. Led by brave captain, Nick Munge; the Plastic Jocks field a starting team including Jeff Kiely, Tom Blees, Dave Staunton, and Christmas. Contributingto the glory and limelights are Don Richards, Jeff Goldenhagen, Robert "Smitty" Smith Harry Underwood, Jim Dunn, Dave Foster Freemond, and Ron Bloom.

Analysis of a recent Health Surveythat New College sent to a select group of colleges indicated that our total health program compares very favorably with other colleges of our type. As a result of our findings the following changes will become effective as of Feb. 1, 1971: Simple medication, such as that used for and darvon will be administered for free. Stocked antibiotics or drugs now held in limited supply will be administered in accordance to our doctor's prescription for a standard $1 fee. This will re present a savings of 300 to 400 per cent for students who need the most commonly used antibiotics. As in the past, other medications not held in stock must be pur chased by prescript ion through a local drug store. In order to maintain this additional service with in budgetary limits and in accordance with current small co 11 e g e health policies, it will be necessary to charge a $1 fee for each innoculation for foreign travel. This includes small pox tetanus, and typhoid Gamma and all other innoculations will be provided at cost. All injections will be given for free in accordance to a doctor's request slip. However there will be a charge for each syringe used. the fault of the book store people, and the reason for that is the one behind an awful lot of modem inefficiency--the desire to make a profit.

FRESH PICKINGS by Marc Weinberg What is an o r g an i c g a r d e n ? It i s a garden in which whatever is grown is gt<>wn the use of chemical pestici d e s or synthetically produced chemical fertilize rs Instead, a compost heap is used to fertilize the ground and such things as garlic and marigolds are used to keep away unwanted insects. A compost heap is a pile of organic garbage: grass clippings, dead weeds,). ime, manure, food peelings, etc. Chemists can synthesize NPK-nitrogen phosphorous, potassium, but they can't synthesize in the exact same proportions as they occur in nature all the elements, including trace elements, found in ordinary soil. While NPK will make the plants grow faster, it will also deplete the soil of the needed trace elements that much quicker. There is such a garden at New College. It is located at the southwestern comer of the old soccer field, behind the barracks. First term, we planted kale, broccoli, let tuce, and rutabaga. The lettuce, I am sorry to say, was killed by the frost. The kale, however, is ready to be picked, and eaten, so help yourself. We will probably be planting again in the beginning of February. Possible candidates for planting are:carrots, canteloupe, sweet com, radish, lettuce, onions, and watermelon. If anyone would like toheln please come to room 219 uyouget a chance.

The 80 per cent remains standard regardless of the quantity purchased. Next, New College is taking a 5 per cent cut off the top on all sales at the bookstore. And freight charges, which the bookstore pays, are ndardly 4 per cent of retail prices to the book store as profit. Then, there is the New Co 11 e ge Way of Life to contend with. C 1 asses are organized or unorganized at veritable droppings of hats, and there is never any way, thanks to our liberal re gistration procedures, of knowing how many people are going to be taking any particular class. Book orders are based on the best guesses of the people who teach the course and that best guessma y not come close to the actual number of students. "Are three enough--are sixtoo many?" is suddenly more than a prune JOke. Books that have to be returned to publishers, unsold, cut even deeper into the profit margin. Most publishers don't repay full price paid on books, and re turning books means that the freight charges have to be paid again. Last year an ad hoc Bookstore Committee was appointed by the Committee on Committees, with Ted Ansbacher as chairman. The Bookstore Commi tee examined much the same problems as outlined here, and came up with much the same lack of worthwhile compensatory actions. "On the basis of our l.nqulry", the Committee reported on May 18, 1970, "there did not appear to ABORTION "Discovering they were pregnant in situations where they felt it was wrong to bring a new life into the world ... hundreds of thousands of women have resorted to illegal abortions in panic and desperation. Results have been tragic in terms of physical and mental health for the woman and her family. This is the beginning paragraph in a pamphlet put out by The Problem Pregnancy Counseling S e rvice of Orange, California. The leaflet goes on to point: out that law provides for legal abort10n when "carrying the pregnancy to term involves substantial risk to the mental health of the mother. This clause makes abortion legal for the maJority of women. New Yorl< state has recently made a 11 abortions legal when-preformed by a licensed physician. This law has resulted in a mass pilgrimage to New York by pregnant women from all across the country. Some 60, 000 abortiona have been preformed since the law went into effect in July, 1970. According to various literature on the subject, suction curettage abortions are preform e d for as little as $200.00 in New Yorl< at certain special clinics.

Two maJor factors are largely out of the control of the College or Bookstore: delays by the publishers in filling orders, and delays in the shipment of orders.

The rest of the Committee's report consisted m a i n 1 y of recommendations that the faculty get the i r orders to the Boolsstore as early as possible. There wa also a suggestion that a liason be estab-lished between the administration andthe Bookstore but that recommendation has never been implemented. What actually keeps theBo.okstore financially viable are its sales of material other than the textbooks. The paperbacks and other trade books have a 45 per cent profit margin;another advantage,of paperbacks is that they cari be returned to the distributors at no loss to the retailer.
