  • THE ROFILE IMELV NUMBER 1 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 SEPTEMBER 20, 1968 Where are you, freshmen? Where arc you, freshmen 9 Yes, you're at college, away from home for the first time in your lives. Hut you're also a part of a larger world - larger than the confining world of the college campus. Physically you're in a large city. Some of you arc in a different state from the one you regularly lire in. You are also part of the United States of A mcrica and beyond that, the world as a whole. You are located, moreover, in the mainstream of a large body of people - the students of the world. You are a member of the Agnes Scott student body. But bigger than this is the student population on a national level. You are a part of this larger group and should be concerned with what is going on in it, just as much as you arc interested in what happens on the ASC campus. In a national election year, the attention oj the individual is turned to politics on a country- wide basis. With such a national orientation, this is a good time to turn our attention to student affairs and politics on a nationwide basis, while not neglecting the smaller spheres of the city and state. What do you really know about SDS, Hucy Newton, Black Panthers, Yippies, military research on college campus, guerilla theatre and draft reform proposals? These are issues, ideas and groups of concern to students today. These are things we should be aware of and informed about. What do you know about Julian Bond, the A tlanta garbage strike, the Atlanta College Community Forum, Kirk wood and volunteer service at Henry Grady Hospital? These are people, ideas and groups on a local level which you can not only be aware of, but work with. In these first weeks and months of school it is your job to get used to being a college student, an Agnes Scott student. But don't lose sight of the macrocosm outside the microcosm of our own campus. Be aware of the part NSA plays in Agnes Scott student government, but also know about the recent division of NSA at its national congress. Keep up with your reading for History 1 01, but also find time to read the daily newspaper. Don 't settle for just passive reading - be active, do something, become involved with some project or movement which brings you into contact with people outside the campus confines. In short, don't narrow your field of vision Find time to be aware, to be a whole person, part of the college, the city, the world. Agnes Scott College? Atlanta? the world? Opportunities off-campus offered In an interview at student government leadership retreat, Tara Swartsel, chairman of Exchange/Intercollegiate committee, said that there are several channels open for students on campus who want to broaden their horizons by becoming involved in projects off campus. She said her committee is not the only means. She cited Christian Association service projects, which always have trouble getting volunteers who will live up to their commitment, as another opportunity for students. TARA WENT ON to say it bothers her that Agnes Scott is doing these sort of projects alone, rather than working with other schools and finding out what they are doing. Intercollegiate is the kind of organization which can give needed coordination between colleges. Tara defined it as a council of 28 Atlanta colleges (not including junior colleges) which meets to serve and coordinate the member schools and the greater Atlanta area. Intercollegiate works not only with service projects, but also for city-wide discounts for students, speaker co-ops and generally for better education. TARA SAID INTERCOLLEGIATE hopes to have a paid director through the city government in the near future. This director would receive a salary to help the group compile lists of projects, engage lectures and generally coordinate the group's activities. Last year, Tara said, representatives to Intercollegiate from member schools met with the Atlanta National Urban League. She hopes the NUL will keep Intercollegiate aware of service projects which need to be undertaken in the city. She said the group expects to be able to get some help in the area of student discounts through the city chamber of commerce. With a student association of colleges in the Atlanta area, the colelges can work together themselves for educational opportunities. Tara gave as an example an idea which she has had. SHE SPOKE OF COURSES in black history and art which will be offered at Georgia Tech this year. She hopes to be able to work out some method by which ASC students can share in these courses or hear professors who teach them. Tara urged students to keep aware of wrrat is going on in the city and the world. She said, "Just because we're a small girls school doesn't mean we can't be aware." She spoke of the recent congress of the National Student Association which she attended representing Agnes Scott and said that other students from across the country know what is happening in the world. She said, 'it's so dangerous if the ones who agree with what's happening are the only ones who know about the issues." PAGE 2 THE PROFILE SEPTEMBER 20. 1968 EDITOR BUSINESS MANAGER ASSOCIATE EDITOR SANDRA EARLEY SHARON PLEMONS KAY PARKERSON THE / PROFILE Copy Editorials Features Campus News Advertising Circulation Elizabeth Crum Anne Willis Beverly Walker Alexa Mcintosh Catherine Auman Peggy Chapman News service gives broader perspective Views expressed in the editorial section of thfs publication are those of the majority of the editorial staff, unless signed by the author. They do not necessarily represent the opinion of the administration or the student body. / Plastic surgery Like so many middle-aged women, the fifty-five-year old PROFILE has begun to look and feel its age. But through the miracle of modern medicine'er typography and graphics, the PROFILE has had her face lifted. She's out of her sagging jowls and into a creative, open magazine-type layout. The new layout reflects the new mood of the paper. In the future, the PROFILE will attempt to give organic, in-depth coverage to campus, local and national issues and events of relevance to not only the Agnes Scott community, but to the student population at large. Readers can look for a single idea or objective underlying most of the stories in each issue. Not only is this first issue the orientation publication, it is designed to suggest to both the freshman and the upperclassman that she should be aware of the college, not as a world in itself, but as a part of the larger context of the city, the country, the world. We hope the PROFILE will not only be about Agnes Scott students, but for them. We seek to do some measure of educating - with background articles like the one on SDS used in connection with the more recent article on the Chicago riots. Campus and national political events are not our only concern. We will continue to publish an eight page edition containing an art and entertainment supplement several times each quarter. We are vitally interested in the opinions of our readers- about the PROFILE itself and on issues we discuss. Not only do we encourage letters to the editor, we beg for them. We are also initiating a column called "Scottie Speaks" hoping to force several people each week to address themselves to pertinent issues. Another new item in this issue is the PROFILE Pegboard. As the name suggests, through this section of the paper, we seek to fulfill our bulletin board function. Items and information on scheduled campus events will be found in this column. And so here lies our manifesto - in brief and in part. We do not ask our readers to agree with us. We only ask that they think, and then express their thoughts - loudly. We hope that they will be as alive and aware as we will try to be. Ear ley What does "(CPS)" mean after the dateline in a story in the PROFILE? It stands for College Press Service, the news service division of the six-year-old U. S. Student Press Association of which the PROFILE is a member. CPS sends out a number of stories weekly to member papers to be used as they are or as background for locally-based stories. CPS releases are no longer stories clipped and rewritten from college newspapers as they were in the early days of the service. Most releases now are original, well-researched pieces. The staff of CPS in 1967-68 consisted of three full-time people in Washington with a full-time correspondent in Vietnam and part-time correspondents in San Francisco, Chicago and Paris. Changes and expansions for 1968-69 include plans for full-time people in New York and San Francisco and the establishment of a black desk, a black person to cover mainly black news. CPS functions primarily to give colleges access to off-campus coverage with a different perspective from that available in the commercial press. The service is edited and written by people who have recently graduated Overlieard Mary Anne Murphy: "When I take baths in the daytime, I always get a lonely stomach." Ann Hoefer at retreat, summing up our smugness in our academic superiority: "We may not date, but we're great." Taken from a 4 68 senior's comments on a drinking policy questionable: "The question of drinking should be left to the student's own digression/' *** Associate Editor: "Can we use 'Damn' in the PRO- FILE?" Editor: "Heck, yeah!" LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To The Editor: When assigned the article on the SDS I knew close to nothing about the organization and had everything to learn. My understanding of this group is by no means complete. I only know that something like this, a movement that is controversial from every standpoint, cannot be presented to any group from an emotional point of view. For this reason, I've tried to make my article as factual and concise as possible. As a college student, I have felt the pressure of a society that was moulded by time and events I had nothing to do with. I can admire this group to a certain extent, simply because these young people of our generation are taking action to improve situations they consider intolerable. However, I cannot force myself to admire all the tactics employed by the SDS. Peaceful demonstrations are one thing, but deliberate and active rioting is another. Society is inevitably changed by those who seek to improve their own condition and that of their fellow man. These young people are having a profound effect on the American society of today and that of tomorrow. They can no longer be overlooked by anyone. It is definitely up to the individual however, to read about this movement and keep up with it. This is what is happening and is at work on hundreds of campuses across the nation. As members of the same generation it is our responsibility to know and understand what is going on. There is no way to shield yourself because this part of American youth is no longer a silent follower but is emerging as a truly significant force affecting our lives and society of tomorrow. How long can the other parts of American youth stay silent? Sincerely, Carol Banister "7 1 from colleges and universities acu * the country and who, for the most part, were editors of their college newspapers. The contents of 1967-68 CPS releases were primarily concerned with the draft, Vietnam and black issues. In a recent pamphlet published by CPS about itself, it defended the coverage, "It is plainly a wrong view to think CPS is supposed to somehow carve out a little niche for itself with stories on educational reform and student power while ignoring a war, an election, and a racial struggle which are not only of vital importance to the nation, but of great interest to students." Answering a charge that CPS coverage was biased to the left, the author of the pamphlet said, "Although this criticism (the slant to the left) was usually over-stated, it is partly true. As all intelligent editors and reporters know, their personal views influence the way they look at events, the stories they choose to write, and the facts they include. "It is probably more noticable in the case of CPS because our bias is not to which most editors and students are accustomed - the pro-establishment bias of the commercial wire services and newspapers." by sandra earley If Miss Othmar were to ask me about my summer vacation, I would have to tell her that I will always remember my twenty-first summer as the one when I had my own personal meter maid, got molested at noon in the parking lot of Greenville, S.C.'s most modern shopping center, literally fell on my face in Chicago, 111., and nearly had all four wisdom teeth removed. It all started the first week I went to work as a reporter at a real, live commercial newspaper. I had envisioned my summer as a glamourous one of chasing firetrucks and writing obituaries, but as it turned out, my adventures came in what the movie magazines would call my "private life." (Now I ask you, can you imagine any A.S.C. girl having a movie magazine "private life?") Unmetered parking is absolutely non-existant within a mile radius of the newspaper office. So for the first week, I dutifully leaped up from my desk every two hours, banging my knee on the typewriter stand, and ran outside to feed the meter-monster. 'Er, I accomplished the ritual feeding nearly every two hours. This is where B. Darby comes in. Somewhere lurking the streets of Greenville, S.C., is an Irish meter maid (yes, even the meter maids are Irish) with a personal vendetta for a defenseless little light green Comet station wagon named "Skitters." During my first week at work 1 received five personal messages from B. Darby, each of which cost me one dollar. She received numerous personal messages from me, too, although she never knew it. Every day when I walked past the police station on my way to lunch, I silently screamed, with uplifted fist, "Curse you, B. Darby!" After about two weeks of being nickel-dime-and-pennied to death, not to mention the green leafy vegetables B. Darby thrived on, I decided to go out for the cross-country track team (maybe when Clemson hears about this, they'll offer me a scholarship). I started parking back behind the office under the Church Street Bypass bridge. Each morning at 7:15 a.m. as I arrived at work, I got out of my car, pulled on my thousand league boots, hiked up my skirt and started my run up the hill past Duke Power Co. on the left, across the mud flats and past the Phyllis Wheatley Center (it sounds like a home for unwed mothers, but isn't). After the center, it was through the liquor store parking lot (no, don't stop, it's not open yet) past the County Jail recreation yard (wave at the prisoners - it's the big event of their day) and leap over the jail's German police dog kennel (he didn't even bark or nip after the first week). After the last hurdle, I arrived at the back of the newspaper building with only the stares and comments of the construction workers to endure. From there it was easy to get the elevator and go upstairs to the office - except for the time the garbageman accidently broke a bottle and a flying piece of glass nearly put my eye out. But don't worry, if you ever need to park near the newspaper office in Greenville, S.C., I now know a great place where the meter's broken. It's across from the liquor store at the back of the building. You just pull into the space, hop out next to the jail, and put a penny in the meter. The little arrow whizzes right over to two hours. SEPTEMBER 20. 1968 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 Leaders call on ASC to work actively in NSA by KAY PARKERSON Associate Editor The following quotes were taken from separate interviews with Gayle Grub and Tara Swartsel who attended the National Student Association Congress this summer. For a report on the action taken by the Congress, see the accompanying story. Tara Swartsel said on her impressions of the Congress as a whole: "I was there ten days, was lost for the first six, and thought that maybe during the last two, I understood what was happening. '*! COULD NOT go along with some of the things that happened there. Maybe the things that went on, some of which were out of my realm at least, are the kind of things that students are doing and that they want the world to know they're doing, and are i TARA SWARTSEL (L.) AND GAYLE GRUBB DISCUSS The New NSA As It Will Affect ASC. involved in. How did she feel coming back into the Agnes Scott community now? "My feeling isn't too different, because I have always felt that these are the kind of problems we should open our eyes to. There are bigger things in the world than we pay attention to at Agnes Scott. "I THINK THE NSA conference would have shown anyone from Scott that kids on other campuses are considering their campus issues, but they are also involved in world ana* national affairs and they don't just talk about them, they do things about them. They go to Chicago, and not all of them go as hippies and Yippies; lots of them are going as responsible citizens. "Scott needs to know what's going on, but Scott has got to make its contribution to NSA. We just can't pull from NSA the student services.. .it has to be more than that. Scott has to contribute by being aware." '7 really feel like NSA has a lot to offer to Agnes Scott in that NSA doesn't dictate to the schools. It's there as a resource " WILL THE SPLITTING of NSA weaken the two groups eventually? "I don't see how it can. ..with the split, a whole lot more concentrated attention could be paid to each area." Gayle Grubb said on the credentials fight: "If we're concerned about racism, we must say to ourselves, what are we going to do about it in our own ranks? The University of Alabama was not necessarily made an example of, except to say to the rest of the delegation, look at your own delegation, go back to your own campuses, are you involving every group on your campus in your student government? And what can you do to involve every student? "In fact, I thought about challenging our delegation, not because we don't represent the students on campus, but because we are evidently a racist school, if you're judging this thing on principle. But the rule is that if a school has only one delegate, it is to be the NSA co-ordinator. "WE DIVIDED UP into groups according to the size of the school. This was really valuable for me, to see what other small schools come up against... Small schools do have an advantage over large schools in the fact that we have a great deal of communication between administration and students. We have the opportunity to make ourselves known and it's up to us to do it. "One thing in particular that was brought up was how do you get a heterogenous student body in a private, expensive, select school? And we didn't come up with any great answers because alot of this is not for the students to deal with, because there is alot of money involved and we're not in any position. "IF YOU CAN'T HAVE a heterogenous student body, you can't introduce things on your campus, you can't have special seminars or courses.. .or whatever. "I really feel like NSA has alot to offer to Agnes Scott in that NSA doesn't dictate to the schools. It's there as a resource, and it's how ever your campus uses the resource of NSA that determines the effect that NSA has on the campus. "One of the most valuable things was the regional meetings, because southern schools have problems that are typical to them. ...The thing is that so many southern schools have stayed out saying that NSA is a radical organization, rather than getting in and making their voice heard. "They had a regional meeting in Atlanta last winter which the campus didn't know about. There's going to be one in New Orleans in the winter time, which I wish I could get some underclassmen to go to, to show them. "THERE WAS EVERY KIND of sentiment at the congress and I was exposed to a great deal of radicalism that you don't find anywhere in the South. But the mainstream of NSA is a very stable, very moderate organization which is anxious to do things, to move out and to make itself heard." NSA split makes services, political activity possible College Press Service At its national congress at the University of Kansas this summer, the National Student Association stopped talking of taday's problems and passing legislation on it, and began taking steps to actively change them. A negro student from the University of Alabama challenged the voting delegation of his school on the grounds that it was all white and had not sought black students to come to the conference. The Congress voted to place him on the delegation and throw one of the regular delegates off. The students seemed to think that the student government should have recruited black delegates actively, and should be penalized for not doing so. Some 20-odd other delegations then challenged themselves, because there was no black representation from their schools. One school, the University of Maryland, even gave up its own voting rights, saying, "we realize that the University of Maryland is inherently a racist institution in its admission policies, student attitudes, and administrative and faculty personnel." The congress passed a resolution stating that in order to be seated at next year's congress, each delegation will have to show that they "have done something toward ending racism on their campus" Up till this summer, NSA has been unable to participate in political activity because of its tax-exempt status. As a non-profit organization which accepts government and foundation grants, it is prohibited by law from legislative lobbying and other political activities. The solution was to divide NSA into two corporations. The first, which will still be called the National Student Association, will be tax-exempt, but will not accept grants. It will be allowed to engage in all forms of political activity on a national local or state level except for the endorsment of specific c andidates. The "new NSA" is losing no time getting into operation. It is presently raising money to enter into the political campaigning this fall. Immediate goals are the 18-year-old vote, the stop-the-war movement The second corporation, called the National Student Institute, will in effect be the old NSA. It will operate all programs funded by foundation and government grants. One of its programs will be a new Center for Educational Reform whichwill pull together and extend NSA's past activities in the academic area. It remains to be seen whether NSA can succeed in being all things to all people, assuage both major camps and hope to retain the respect of all in its drive for increased political power. SDS Seven years of student activism by CAROL BANISTER The central force responsible for many of the recent campus explosions at colleges all over the United States is a group known as Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). The group is an offspring of the old socialist League for Industrial Democracy. It was founded at Port Huron, Mich., in 1961. The first meeting was attended by about 60 people representing 1 1 colleges The Port Huron statement drafted at this meeting by Tom Hayden, a University of Michigan student, states the "creed" of the group. "...We seek the establishment of a democracy of individual participation, governed by two central aims: that the individual share in those social decisions determining the quality and direction of his life; that society be organized to encourage independence in men and provide the media for their common participation." OUT OF THIS beginning has grown a following of over 40,000 national and local activists in more than 300 chapters across the country. Action has become the keyword to their activities. The SDS movement centers around the war in Vietnam, poverty, civil rights and university reform. They oppose the war in Vietnam terming it "the U.S. Government's immoral, illegal, and genocidal war against the people of Vietnam" and "insist on the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. personnel from the country." SDS "demands the abolition of the Selective Service System" seeing the draft as "racist and anti-democratic, procuring manpower for aggressive wars abroad." They feel that under the present deferment system, young men are psychologically forced to choose occupations that will insure their safety from the draft, whereas in another situation, they would have made another choice. SDS HEARTILY SUPPORTS the civil rights movement. They feel the "black people must act as a group in establishing their common identity, and in planning a strategy to challenge their oppression." The multiuniversity is another area in which SDS is active. They view it as "a knowledge factory, a kind of service station producing skilled manpower and intelligence for integration with the marketable needs of the major corporate, government and military institutions." The ranks of SDS include people of many political groups, not excluding socialists, anarchists, communists and humanist liberals. There is a constant intermingling of the ideas of all these groups. SDS has no one political theory and has adopted no particular political ideology. THEY OFFER NO solutions for the problems they see. It is a movement among the young people of America. These are young people who do not like what they see in our country today and feel that by active demonstrations they may show the world their opposition. The nation has seen this group in action in the March on Washington to End the War in Vietnam on April 17, 1965. They were active in the spring riots at Columbia University. They were in on the co-ed equality demonstrations at the University of Georgia last year and more recently, the riots in Chicago during the Democratic National Convention. WHAT SDS SEEKS is a change in the society of today's U.S.A. The "freedom" they advocate includes the individual's right to pursue his own choice in life without fear of the draft and degradation by the press. It also includes freedom for the blacks of America to assume an active part in all aspects of American society. They seek freedom for the young people of America to rise up and protest ideas and conditions with which they do not agree. SDS members are some of the most prominent leaders of campus life in the U.S. speaking from the North, South, East and West. What was begun in Port Huron seven years ago has grown into one of the largest youth movements in history. Their aims and actions will not be relegated to the campus community. For these reasons SDS is a group that can not be ignored. PAGE 4 THE PROFILE SEPTMEBER 20, 1968 Will student liberals turn to radicalism after Chicago? by TOM MILLER & College Press Service CHICAGO (CPS)-Late in the afternoon the day of the Battle of Michigan Avenue, Dave Dellinger of the National Mobilization Committee huddled with two representatives of the Chicago Police Department. He was explaining to them what tactics the "Mobe" was planning to use next and why, while the officers kept repeating, 'This is no time for philosophizing. " Somehow that Dellinger-police meeting symbolized the whole week. There was the refusal of the police to recognize individuals, even in their most absurd conditions, the intense offer of reconciliation on the part of the Movement, a total lack of understanding of what the protest was or why it existed. And from that week, the Movement will go off on its own. THE RADICAL POLITICAL AND CULTURAL groups-best known being Students for a Democratic society and various guerrilla theatre troupes-which solidified and grew from last October's Pentagon march to Lyndon Johnson's withdrawal-now have their best recruitment opportunities. In the last 18 months, Movement groups have been forced to parallel practical established politics. Now, through the death of volunteer activity on behalf of Presidential candidates, radical organizations no longer need to calculate moves by regular politics, and can now veer off on its own course. When the turf in Grant Park facing the Conrad Hilton was won Wednesday and Thursday evenings, thousands of people gathered to hear the speeches and music throughout the night. The audience participated in any way they saw fit; extending the Digger concept of "Free City," this was a Free Convention-anyone could take the microphone and say what he pleased. More significant than the speeches in Grant Park was the mood of the crowd. This was not a radical anti-administration harangue. What evolved was a feeling much like that of the civil rights movement in the South in the early Sixties-one of solidarity, camaraderie and a strange kind of patriotism. ONCE THE FREE CONVENTION WAS under way, it gained stature. Not only regular radical political spokesmen and their cultural counterparts speak; the delegates also came over to speak. From the South came a delegate from South Carolina, who told the crowd that while he was a "law and order" man and voted for Humphrey, he had never seen such action on the part of police, had never known what the peace people were really like, and had now come away with new thoughts on "law and order" and sympathetic feelings for the anti-war movement." The obvious fact is that McCarthy workers had nowhere to go at that time. For some the defeat of their man was instant radicalization, for others only a temporary flirtation with the radical movement. For those there will be Congressional candidates to work for. Material on SDS, Socialist Workers Party, Progressive Labor and Trotskyites was accepted with the same tolerance as the free daily newspapers put out during the week. People would turn to the RAMPARTS Wall Poster for their news instead of the Chicago TRIBUNE. NOW, EVEN TEMPORARILY RADICALIZED, the liberal students who came to Chicago will have a considerably greater sympathy with campus leftists in their demands this fall. Each student's activity will be more radical because of Chicago. Those who before wouldn't even do political work will work for radical candidates within the system. Able now to chart their own course exclusive of the byplay of normal electoral politics, and armed with many new troops, radical groups find themselves protagonists and antagonists as the situation demands. What everyone saw was the occupation of Chicago. With enemies like its mayor, the Movement needs no friends. PEGBOARD MEMBERS OF STUDENT GOVERNMENT returned Wednesday from the threeday fall leadership retreat at Rock Eagle 4-H Center near Eadenton, Ga. Meetings of all boards and panel discussions centered around the theme "Kinesis: From the potential to the actual." In her address to the opening session of retreat, Tina Brownley, student government president, discussed what has come to be known at Agnes Scott as The Problem. She emphasized in beginning her speech that the situation at the college is not static. Students love ASC, but also work to make it better. She divided the causes of The Problem into two areas, the individual and the environment. Student government as a group can not do much to correct student discontent on an individual level, she said. Student government's involvement comes primarily on the level of the environment, solutions centering around the honor system. Tina listed three difficulties with the honor system as it functions now. She emphasized that she did not say trouble with the honor system itself, rather, with the way it functions now. Petty social rules are often a scapegoat for individual problems, she said. This is the first difficulty,, Secondly, she said, rules often hinder personal development. The third difficulty, she said, is that rules often hamper academic pursuits. Tina called for "an honest realistic assessment of our honor system." She asked for a maxium of personal freedom, through a group of guidelines for behavior rather than rules. She read to the group a quotation suggesting that integrity has no need of rules. In addition to several meetings of each student government board, the entire group heard two student-faculty panel discussions. On Monday evening a panel discussed the retreat theme in relation to education. Tuesday was devoted in most meetings to a dialogue concerning the honor system. Tuesday afternoon a panel discussion centered on the retreat theme in relation to the honor system. THE PORTRAIT OF MRS. AGNES Scott, mother of the college founder, George Washington Scott, has been returned to its place on the parlor wall of Main building from whence it was stolen last year. The portrait was rehung Friday, Sept. 13, next to the picture of the founder. When asked if the picture was bolted to the wall to discourage further pilfering, Business Manager P.J. Rogers smiled mysteriously and said, "She's fixed." REPAIR ON THE HUB (Murphy Chandler building) is due to be finished October 1, according to P.J. Rogers, college business manager. The $45,000 restoration, exclusive of furnishings, is being done by White Repair and Contracting Co. Furniture which could be salvaged from the fire has been refinished and is ready to go back into the building, Rogers said. The baby grand piano and pool table destroyed in the fire will be replaced, he added. Curtains made for the building last year had been removed for cleaning before the fire and are also ready to be put back in the building. The fire was discovered at 1:06 a.m., June 20, by a night watchman on his regular campus rounds, Rogers said. The fire is thought to have begun about 1 1 p.m. around a sofa and overstuffed chair in the basement of the building, he said. He suggested lighted cigarettes left on the furniture may have been the source of the fire, although the cause could not be determined absolutely. Rogers said the fire went undiscovered because it was contained in the pocket between the ceiling of the basement and the floor of the main floor during its early stages. He said the fire could have gotten out of control if it had not been discovered when it was. Scottie Speaks Sally Gillespie, k 69: "It is hard for me to say exactly what I have lost or gained since my freshman year. I don't feel that I have lost my enthusiasm, but I feel that perhaps it has become more directed and more constructive. If I felt that I had not matured after three years or that my enthusiasm was gone, I would not be here now. Sherri Yandle, '69: "When I came to school, I came with all these bit ideas of things you are going to do. College was my stepping stone to saving the world. As Tina Brownley said, I have lost my 'truthless ideals.' Idealistic enthusiasm has been replaced by a mature, directed enthusiasm/' Jane Quillman, l 7 1 : "I have lost the assurance that everything will come with time, because there isn't enough time. If you can realize that, you have replaced a bland idealism with a more mature attitude toward long range goals. Also, I have lost any uncertainty about being a part of Scott." Techmen see ASC as conservative by CAROL Georgia Tech fraternities were busy BLESSING re P airm g and painting while joking and sharing summer experiences, preparing on last Saturday for Rush Week. The Phi Delts were hedge-trimming and painting the entrance hall, the ATO's were mowing the grass, the Phi Sigma Kappas and KAs were a paint-scattered crew as they worked on the ceilings. What have you lost (enthusiasm, self-assurance, etc.) since your freshman year at Agnes Scott? BIG MEN ONCAMPUS,PETE PALMISANO (L.) AND DAVE MARSH Cross The Tracks To Enlighten Scotties. But they all stopped whatever they were doing when asked to give their idea of the ASC freshman and what they expect in a rush girl. Dave Marsh, rush girl chairman for the TKEs, said the ASC freshman usually has varied interests and more outside interests than other girls. They are more sincere and a little more self-confident (perhaps a little bit too much?). As a rush girl, they should enjoy themselves and aid the fraternity at the same time. As for her appearance, Dave said, "I like her to be happy and smiley, able to make conversation easily." John Traendly of Beta Theta Pi thinks of an ASC freshman as being more reserved, more conservative, than the average freshman. He responded eagerly to the rush girl image question saying that "I've always wanted to do this-boy I'd thought I'd really tell 'cm, 1 ' but neglects to say what he wants to tell us. Peter Palmisano, a member of Sigma Chi and vice-president of Interfraternity Council, replied that on the whole, ASC freshmen are very attractive and intelligent. He thinks that by just asking them to be themselves they'll succeed as rush girls. He wryly added, "Techmen should not go through Tech without visiting the other side of the tracks." (Perhaps we should offer guided tours?) Some fraternity men who were really honest but remain anonv mous think freshmen are stuck-up, too goody-goody, and too naive. "They think they are too damned cool - because they are going to Scott." "I wish they'd all wear mini skirts when they come to rush for us." (Drag out the rnidi's, girls.) "Do you think ASC girls are different'.'-Yes, just ask them, they'll tell you." But the last word goes to Bobby Carter of Beta Theta Pi. When asked his opinion, he replied succinctly, "I love 4 em, and freshmen are the best!" THE ROFILE VOLUME LV NUMBER 2 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 SEPTEMBER 27, 196K Questionaire results: students express dissatisfaction with In a questionnaire distributed to students by Rep Council last spring, students were given the opportunity to express specific gripes concerning social and academic regulations as they appear in the college handbook and on student government's effectiveness. The results of ihe 312 questionnaires returned were compiled recently at student government retreal. Student Government Treasurer Bebe Guill expressed pleasure at the thoroughness and extent of the questionnaires returned, although she had expected to receive more "STUDENTS DON'T REALIZE how helpful their contributions will be in forming a guideline for future policies and changes," she said. The question on the drinking policy proved to be controversial as 13 per cent of boarding students said they were not satisfied with the policy while 25 per cent were satisfied and 2 per cent undecided. In the range from senior to freshman, students were increasingly more dissatisfied with the drinking policy. Fifty per cent of the class of '68 were dissatisfied as compared with 68 per cent in the class of '69, 85 per cent in the class of '70 and 77 per cent in the class of '7 1 . The total percentage for day students on the drinking policy were 60 per cent in favor of it as it stands, 1 5 per cent dissatisfied and 25 per "cent undecided. MANY STUDENTS FELT the college should take no specific stand on the consumption of alcoholic beverages off-campus. Tina Brownley, president of student government, expressed the opinion of these students when she said, "I hope Agnes Scott will consider upholding rather than enforcing state law." Students also expressed dissatisfaction concerning the apartment policy inspite of last year's procedural changes in methods of obtaining permission to visit men's living quarters. Seventy-three per cent of the total number of questionnaires returned were not satisfied with the present policy, 26 per cent were and one per cent were undecided. The majority of students replying were satisfied with activities considered social engagements as stated in the handbook. Seventy-one per cent of the total said "yes" they were satisfied with 25 per cent answering "no"~and 4 per cent undecided. Several students who were unhappy with activities listed as social engagements commented. One said, "Parents should never, but never, be considered a social engagement." Another said, "How can activities without dates possibly be considered very social?" UNDER ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 37 per cent of students responding thought regulations regarding voluntary class attendance were "too strict." Sixteen per cent regarded the regulations as "strict" while 39 per cent called them "satisfactory." Eight percent were undecided. Fifth-one per cent of the class of '68 thought voluntary class attendance regulations "too strict" or "strict," as compared with 46 per cent in the combined categories in the class of 4 69, 53 per cent in A NEW LOOK FOR the Dean's Office? No, just Judicial Chairman Lou Frank (1.) and Student Government President Tina Brownley clowning as they babysit with the office while the dean's staff attends a meeting. the class of l 70 and 63 per cent in the class of k 7 I . Many students unhappy with voluntary class attendance as it is now suggested students on academic probation be given at least one cut per class as freshmen have tali quarter. Students came out solidly in favor of a suggestion that they be allowed to schedule their own exams. Eighty-two per cent of the total number of students responding said "yes" they would like to schedule their own exams, with 13 per cent replying "no" and live per cent undecided. IN RESPONSE TO the question, "Is the work done by Rep Council totally representative of our student body?" students were almost evenly divided in opinion. Thirty-two per cent said "yes" with 35 per cent answering "no" and 33 per cent undecided. Tina Brownley urged students to come directly to Rep Council rather than complaining in the dorms. She said Rep Council is always open and everyone is invited to come and "shoot the bull." She stressed that meetings are always very informal. Tina called on the student body for patience in having policies they are not satisfied with changed. She reminded students that changes have been made, but time is needed for more to be done. "We've got to have time; the patience and cooperation of the entire student body is essential," she said. She also asked for students cooperation with new policies which have just gone into effect, like dorm sign-out. She stated, "I hope students realize that this and the present is a pivotal time in determining how much responsibility we will receive in the future. In other words, if sign-out doesn't work, It's curtains." drinking policy, apartment policy. voluntary class attendance New student lobby gives activists 'constructive outlet' W A S H I N GTON (CPS)-The million of young people who are outraged about the war in Vietnam, the draft and what they think of as their "second-class status" in American society have many ways of showing their feelings. Some riot, some of them write or publish pamphlets or newspapers, some have this year been working to elect to office the candidates they think best exemplify their views and speak for them. One young man in Florida has decided that the answer to youth's problems may lie in a national lobby to campaign solely for the views of the young in the political arena. KENNETH ROTHSCHILD OF Deerfield, Fla., contends that the generation of under-26 citizens in this country (in other words, the draftables) are being exploited by a political system run almost exclusively by those over 26, and that it is time for young people to do something about it. The fault, Rothschild maintains, lies in the decision-making process in the U.S. government, which decides among alternative courses of action on the basis of weighing the vested interests in each possibility. In the case of the Vietnam War, President Johnson initially made a war decision rather than a non-war decision, because he took into account the interests of the adult population and neglected the interests of the under-26 generation which would have to fight and die in the war. "The beneficial value of war, although only slightly greater than those of non-war, continually lures Johnson," he says. "The harm of war can be very great. What Johnson has done is reduce the probability of harm for himself and his constituents (adults) while still pursuing the rewards." ROTHSCHILD HOPES THE YOUTH Lobby, for which he has issued a proposal, can be a way for youth to fight back against such decision-making. The lobby is to be an 44 in te r racial, advocate making the old fight or even turning the decision-making over entirely to the young, he proposes a way to "make the old agonize too." He, like Senator Mc Govern, calls for the establishment of a volunteer army, both because it, "unlike the present Selective Service system, is not involuntary servitude," and because it would make the cost of war greater than the cost of peace. If the military were run on a free-enterprise basis, the government would have to bid for soldiers' services, and thoseservices would command a much higher price in wartime. "The organization is clearly not aimed at those who would, SDS-style, tear the system clown and start over, who thinks the established political process is incurably ill. " non-partisan power center," is to set up an organization "which will be influential in directing current legislation," is to provide a "clearinghouse for youth's opinions." The organization is clearly not aimed at those who would, SDS-style, tear the system down and start over, who think the established political process is incurably ill. The lobby's objectives include "providing a constructive outlet for young activists who may move in time of frustration to rebellion and lawlessness" and "Providing some rapport between youth and the extablishment." The main evil Rothschild wants to change is the draft, which he sees as the most blatant exploitation of youth by adults. WHILE HE DOFS NOT Waiting for the months it takes a revolutionary idea to become accepted, and the additional months it takes Congress' slow legislative processes to work, however, is not acceptable. "We must be able to pressure decision-makers to act now," Rothschild says, "no matter which party is administrating. Do you think the young care whether they die under a Democratic or a Republican administration?" The only alternatives now available to the system for young people are desertion and anarchy, the lobby maintains. It hopes to give another possibility. Other issues it might tackle are civil rights, drugs, the voting age, birth control, education and crime.

Give 'em some time, girls. It takes a while for some committees to work, Rep Council to act and administrative committee to approve. We can do something else while waiting for the internal structure of the college to be further modified. Channels are open, as student government people are fond of saying, and the possibilities for additional change look very good. Now we have the time to move into a new area. Get off the campus. Students now have a system with the work of student government and the five-day week by which they can become involved elsewhere, develop interests beyond the campus boundaries. We can do both - keep an eye on what needs to be done and is being done on campus AND maintain an interest and concern for the city around us, for the nation and for the world. It's just possible we might not gripe so much and be so ingrown if our energies and interests were partially engaged somewhere outside ASC's one city block. Retreat--du Retreat was really downright dull. For the novice, who never has experienced the rustic, primitive simplicity of Camp Calvin, there was not even the satisfaction of making favorable comparisons of Rock Eagle to Calvin. The dullness came from the unity of ideas and feelings there. Real communication occurred among students, and to the surprise of some,faculty, administration and students carried on a meaningful dialogue. Thoughts and ideas of these three groups were amazingly similar. Tension, healthy disagreement, existed and was spirited. However, as a faculty member observed, this is as it should be. Energy, tension are the life sustaining components of any body or system. Dissention and discussion on any issue are indications that the issue is a vital one. "i^inesis"--a word concerning actualization of existing potential -was used at retreat in a variety of ways. The word cannot characterize retreat. The talking and planning represent only the defining of the existing potential. Only in June, and perhaps much later, will we be able to see if this potential can be accurately projected into the college year, indicate several things. First of all, they show a realistic consideration of where we actually are in planning our movement. This will be a welcome relief from all the useless discussions of where we wish we were. Secondly, we will be encouraged to consider carefully our personal concept of honor as well as the collective honor of the college community. Thirdly, there will be a return to emphasis on academics, which supposedly is our major reason for being here. And fourthly, there will be action only where action is constructive and meaningful. The dullness is akin to disappointment. It is that lack of excitement when change comes smoothly, when there is agreement, when needs are recognized and acted upon. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Duval asks for definition of 'racist' To the Fditor: 1 would be interested in Gayle Grubb's definition of the word "racist" as applied to Agnes Scott in your latest issue: "...because we are evidently a racist school, if you're judging this thing on principle." What principle? Is she referring to the presence of a majority of white as compared to the few number of Negro students in the student body, does she regard the admission policies of Scott as ^discriminatory and how, or is. she commenting on an attitude she believes prevalent in a great number of students and faculty members?

WASHINGTON (CPS)-A suburban judge here has found two short-haired teen-agers guilty of assaulting two long-haired youths. The punishment: The convicted pair must spend the weekend carrying picket signs saying "I will respect the rights of others, otherwise 1 will go to jail." by sandra earley A couple of the freshman I met this summer are having some trouble recognizing me now. When we met in August, I had just returned from 10 days in Chicago where I fell on my face. I was one big scab from the circle under my right eye to underneath my nose with a jump down to my chin. 1 was literally a sight to frighten little children. One poor little four-year-old girl stepped out of the pay toilet at O'Hare International Airport, took one look at my face, ran back inside, closed the door and burst into tears. I had to leave before her mother could persuade her to come out. On the flight home, we ran into a storm between Charlotte, N.C., and Greenville, S.C. so we had to make a detour. Not only was the plane about an hour late, when we landed we were met by a little white meat wagon with siren going and lights flashing. My mother, who was to meet me, was somewhat unnerved by the late arrival and the Red Cross welcoming committee, but she held up well when confronted by my unexpected appearance. Her first question was whispered in a don't-ruin-the-family-reputation tone of voice: "You weren't drunk, were you?" Now, Agnes Scott has been known to fall on her face before, but I managed to do it literally. No, Mom, I wasn't drinking, I was merely foot racing. I just knew I could beat this guy across the prairie to the library. I even bet him a C oke I could do it. It wasn't more than a mile to the building,all open country, with only one sidewalk across it. We started off running and I must admit that he was ahead of me. (Yes, I'm sure I wasn't chasing him.) He cut up on the sidewalk and I was right behind him, gaining fast. That's when he fell and I tumbled right over him landing on my face. He didn't get hurt. Then there was me. At least I didn't break a tooth like I did during my freshman year. It all turned out well, however. The guy felt responsible and bought me all the milk shakes I could drink. This turned out to be quite alot of milk shakes, as a straw was the only thing I could gel in my mouth for some time. All of this occured at the U.S. Student Press Association summer congress - not at the riots in Chicago during the Democratic National Convention, worst luck. Alot of things happened during those 10 days. If you ask me sweetly sometime I'll tell you about the co-ed dorm Kay Parkerson and I lived in. But better still, I'll tell you about the co-ed bathrooms. SEPTEMBER 27, 1968 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 Hippies sock it to Wallace at Kentucky by GUY MENDES College Press Service LEXINGTON, KY. {CfS)-George Wallace, a man who has contributed greatly to the political polarization of this country, visited the University of Kentucky last Saturday and was greeted by a complete reversal of the polar stereotypes. While eight "straight-looking" anti-Wallace pickets paraded and a number of neatly-attired members of a campus action group passed out anti-Wallace lea/lets, some 35 scroungy, bearded, sandaled, long-haired "hippies" (as they called themselves) demonstrated for nearly two hours in support of the former A labama governor. CARRYING PLACARDS READING "Turn on with Wallace," "Keep America beautiful, get a haircut, " "Sock it to us, George, " "America - love it or leave it," "Hippies for Wallace," and shouting slogans like "Law and Order Now" and "We're for Po-leece Power, " the group was curiously received. Many of the crowd of 10,000 who turned out to hear Wallace were supporters from across the state. Some of them were able to perceive the tongues in the hippies' cheeks, but many were unable to cope with the reversal of stereotypes. After watching the hippies parade for several minutes, one elderly woman asked uncertainly, "They ARE hippies, aren 't they?" ' "I thought hippies were for McCarthy, " said a Wallace supporter who appeared dismayed by the prospect of association with freaks. SOME WALLACEITES WERE convinced the hippies were serious. "Hippies have SOME sense, " said one. Another said, "If someone like that is for Wallace, I don 't know if I'm supporting the right man or not. " Other Wallace supporters could not overcome the sterotype and were sure the hippies were goofing on them. "You can look at thv.m and tell they're not Wallace people, " said one. "They 're either doped up or ignorant. " EVEN WALLACE WAS SOMEWHAT bewildered by the group when they gained his attention during his oratory. It was a typical WaTace speech, complete with catch-phrases, Wallace witticisms and emotional appeals to the working man. All the same old lines were there: "...who can't park their bicycles straight... they looked 'down Jheir noses at the people of... will be the last car th&*K$ down in front of... never made a speech in my^ifc that reflected on.. .got some free speech folk in fhis e&untry... " As the atmosphere grew tense, as the fervor spread in the crowd, the hippies came through to lighten the mood. They started chanting, "Sock it to 'em George, sock it to 'em George. " Wallace, thinking the shouts came from one of the usual groups of adversaries who attend his speeches, pulled out several patented retorts from his repertoire. THEN, POINTING TOWARD the group which was sitting high in the balcony he said, "You need a haircut, " though he was too far away to see how correct he was. The hippie group began chanting even louder--" We want Wallace. " Wallace hesitated, took a step backwards, approached the mike again and said, "Oh, I think they 're for us up there, " which brought wild applause from the group. The little man with the slicked-back hair had been goo fed on and didn 7 know it. TO THE HIPPIES, it was a romp at a high level of satire. They converted the new left victory signal into a three-fingered "W" for Wallace and they also amended the "Hell no, we won't go" chant to "Heck yes, we want George", a somewhat morally re-armed version of the anti-draft original. Members of the anti and pro-Wallace groups knew each other and engaged in mock debate when the picket lines passed one another. The pro-Wallace hippies would shake their jists and call the neatly dressed anti-Wallace pickets "Communists.. .hippies.. .anarchists.. .you ought to be shot... boo, boo, hiss s... lay down and Ell roll over you, " were a few of the hippies remarks. The pro-Wallace hippies drew such comments as: "Dirty love fascists.. .filthy pat riots... go club some kids. " AETER NEARLY TWO HOURS of pacing back and forth, the hippie \>roup moved to a grassy area for a "patriotic love-in." There they sang "America the Beautiful" and "Dixie. " They jxissed around cans of water which attracted a policeman checking for alcoholic contents. As the policeman checked the cans, the hippies applauded and got to their feet shouting "Law and order, law and order. " They smiled and offered water to the policeman, who managed to slip away after a few pats on the back. The policeman was no doubt confused--as were many others. The actions of this band of unkempt youth were certainly not of the same cloth as that of the usual hippie. may 9 be Wallace 'king-maker by ELIZABETH CRUM Copy Editor What effect will George Wallace have on the 1968 Presidential election? Martha M. Traylor, new visiting assistant professor of political science, said, "I think he is going to have a very definite impact on the election/' She added that many people do not like either of the other two candidates so they vote for Wallace, feeling like they are throwing then- votes away. Mrs. Traylor feels, however, that theirs is not a wasted vote; there are too many people who seriously support Wallace. Mrs. Traylor, a mid-westerner, observed that Wallace is strong in her section of the country. "If anything it [the mid-west] is more conservative than it is here." The rural midwest is frightened by the tense race situation that is emerging. There has always been a deep, hushed fear of the black man which is just coming into the open, she said. The rural sections of the mid-west, which are afforded great power by their respective state constitutions, also strongly support Wallace's stand on "law and order." According to Mrs. Traylor, who was in Chicago during the Democratic National Convention, they praised Mayor Daley's "raw brutality" system of law enforcement. Mrs. Traylor went on to add that much could happen between now and the election. As it stands now, Wallace will come the closer than anyone has come under our present election system to throwing the election into the House of Representatives. There he will try to play the role of "king-maker," thus becoming one of the more powerful men in American politics. Political science group endorses concern for social problems WASHINGTON (CPS)-A group of rebel political scientists has succeeded in getting the American Political Science Association to efficially encourage concern for controversial social and political problems. The Caucus for a New Political Science had challenged the association to replace its traditional scholarly detachment with "a radically critical spirit" about contemporary "crises" and "inherent weaknesses" in the American political system. The amendment and the success of Caucus panel discussions at the APSA's convention here represents a victory for the rebellious offshoot. It was formed last year after the association refused to even discuss certain controversial subjects, including opposition to universities' revealing membership lists of radical campus groups to HUAC. Caucus leaders feel their work is not done, they are seeking members, will continue the push for relevancy, and will publish a journal. Plans for a p.ogram at next year's convention on "prospects for For sy the on ASP A... When asked how this unrest would affect the future of APSA , David P. Forsythe, assistant professor of history and political science, first stated that he was not present at the convention. The movement which finally culminated in the formation of the Caucus, had been present for years in the organization, and finally gained enough strength this year to bring discussion out into the open, he said. "It is an issue which most graduate students wrestle with... (that is) should political science seek to prescribe policy or just analyze what that policy is," he explained. There are two schools of thought among political scientists today; "The behavioralist faction believes the teacher can be objective, a detached observer of events." "They make use of computers to establish statistical indices and get away from human error and analysis. The traditionalists feel that you still have to revolution in America" are being made. Panels arranged by the Caucus at this session explored urban politics, the 1968 elections, student unrest at Columbia University, Vietnam, Czechoslovakia, radical political thought and the Chicago Democratic C onvention. Selective Service Chief Lewis Hershey held forth at a session on "the draft and the rights of conscripted citizens." Caucus members also pushed through a motion prohibiting APSA officers and employees from "engaging in intelligence and cover activities." The decision was an apparent slap at two former APSA leaders whose research firm had received CIA funds. The association approved a declaration that it will "not remain silent on threats to academic freedom" and voted to move its 1970 convention from Chicago to another city with "an atmosphere conducive to free discussion." A stronger resolution condemning Chicago Mayor Richard Daley and his police for their suppression and brutality was defeated after heated debate. by KAY PAR KERSON Associate Editor rely on personal evaluation, and that computers can't program human behavior." They are drawn from the traditional school of thought by their emphasis on the individual and the non-objective viewpoint," he said. "1 personally do not agree in activism by political scientists," explained Forsythe, "My job is to describe current world politics and let the students determine solutions to problems..." "This is an age of activism. The young teachers are but a few years away from the classroom. I might be sympathetic to causes outside my field of political science; many political scientists do not draw that distinction. "The school of activists are a minority; whether they increase, I don't know, but I personally disagree with them," he said. PAGE 4 THE FROMLE SEPTEMBER 27, 1968 HUAC may probe SDS for possible communist ties WASHINGTON (CPS)-lf Representative Albert Watson had his druthers, the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) would be one of the groups on the government's Subversive Organizations blacklist. The South Carolina Republican last week called on the floor of the House of Representatives for a "full-scale investigation" by the House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) of the "most dangerous New Left group operating in the country today." Watson said SDS plans to overthrow the U.S. government, and cited as examples of their tactics the recent Chicago demonstrations and the disruption of Columbia University last spring. He said federal agents who attended the SDS National Convention at Michigan State University in June heard sessions which discussed the "fine points of firing Molotov cocktails from shotguns" and other tactics of guerrilla warfare. Watson also charged that SDS was heavily infiltrated by members of the Communist Party, who see the campus groups as a good base from which to launch their own activities.

AGNES SCOTT IS ONE of 33 senior colleges and universities in Georgia slated to receive funds for the establishment of professional chairs from the Callaway Foundation as announced Saturday by Fuller E. Callaway Jr., a trustee of the foundation. The $10 million trust to be divided among the colleges and universities will be named in honor of Callaway's father. Fuller E. Callaway. The chairs will provide a salary supplement of up to 5 0 per cent of the compensation paid by the colleges to professors who occupy the chairs. College Treasurer William M. Hannah representing Agnes Scott attended the meeting at which the announcement was made. President Wallace Alston said he already has in mind the kind of chair he would like to establish at Agnes Scott, but he wishes to communicate with the foundation before announcing it. If his plans are carried out, the chair will be given to a present professor rather than hiring a new one. The chair will be established in September, 1969, when quarterly payments from the foundation begin. Dr. Alston said he does not know what percentage of the professor's salary will be paid by the foundation. SYMPOSIUM COMMITTEE, formerly under the chairmanship of Marsha Williams, who did not return to Agnes Scott this year, is still functioning. According to Mary Gillespie, vice-president of student government and in charge of Rep Council committees, a symposium will not be held this year. The committee met once after it was organized last spring. Much work on the symposium has been done independently so the committee will not be disbanded. At retreat. Rep Council voted to postpone the symposium for this year. Committee members are in the process of obtaining the complete information from Marsha. If enough information has been gathered, the committee will continue making plans for a symposium to be held next year. A new committee chairman will be appointed soon, Mary Gillespie said. WHEN SOCIAL COUNCIL moves back into the "new" Hub, they will take with them a new outlook on the social events at Agnes Scott. Meeting at retreat, the board decided to do away with the weekly Wednesday night casuals of last year. Instead, one Wednesday night and one Sunday afternoon per month will be reserved for new activities like dances with Emory boys, Bingo games (with prizes), and good movies. Along with several seminars of interest to the student body, the Board plans a fashion show for October 8. Winter Dance Weekend will be January 24 and 25 with a formal dance Friday night and the fabulous Showmen at the dance Saturday night. THE ROFMLE VOLUME LV NUMBER 3 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 OCTOBER 4, 1968 Hippies wear glasses by SANDRA EARLEY We were waiting at the top of the stairs as the children came in from the playground. As they climbed the stairs, they looked u/) and recognized one of us. "Dea!" and "Hi, Deaf" they yelled with various degrees of clarity according to their ability. We had come to Fairhaven School for the mentally retarded to make some photographs. The children remembered Dea Taylor from her work with thcn\ last year. And they wanted to know our names. A ftcr Cheryl Granadc and I identified ourselves we were soon accepted. While I was snapping pictures, the children clambered over Dea and Cheryl. They wanted to hold hands and several of the children got down an oversized clock and demonstrated how well they could tell time. As I walked around with my camera, one little hoy tugged at my arm and grinned up at me. "Smile! You're on Candid Camera !" he informed me. Another potential ham, insisted on posing for my camera while he held hands with Dea. Cheryl was talking with several children when one suddenly informed her that she was a hippie. When she curiously asked him why, he replied logically, "Because you wear glasses. " In the classroom across the hall, a teacher was having a simple arithmetic lesson with four or five students. She asked each child in turn to make a certain number of circles on their paper and count out loud as he did it. When the child completed the exercise, the teacher pulled a bit of Trix cereal from the kangeroo pocket of the apron she wore and rewarded the child. One little Negro boy sat at the side of the table drawing. When asked to show his picture to the lady with the camera, he held up a remarkably detailed drawing of the classroom, the teacher and the other students. Another room at the back of the big old house just off Ponce de Leon Street is a bedroom where the children practice typical, simple housekeeping tasks. They also learn simple sewing skills in addition to their regular classroom work. We came to Fairhaven just at the end of the children's day. As we stood around after making dozens of pictures, the names of the children were called over a loud speaker as their parents arrived to pick them up. They called "goodbye" to their teachers as they left and several remembered to say "goodbye" to us. They asked if we would come back again. Here's your chance... Four C.A. projects give chance for off-campus service CHERYL GRANADE GETS ac- quainted with Beth Ann Almand, one of the Brownies Scotties will be able to work with this year. The Agnes Scott Christian Association is sponsoring four service projects this year. The projects include work at the Fairhaven School for the mentally retarded, an adult education course, sponsorship of a brownie scout troop and a new short term work project program. Dea Taylor, chairman of the Fairhaven project, said working at the school is quite a rewarding experience. Working at Fairhaven School involves an hour and a half per week. There are three particular areas where Scott girls can help: helping teachers in the classroom; doing individual tutoring; and teaching art. Dea commented that even though these children arc severely or moderately retarded, "each child has a personality of his own." They are wonderful and vital, she said. The second project is adult education with Jane Todd in charge. The project will teach illiterate employees of Agnes Scott how to read and write. Starting October 5 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and October 6 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. the Laubach Reading Method will be taught to all interested students from Scott, Georgia Tech, Georgia State and the Atlanta area. After the completion of the course, all students who earned a certificate can and are invited to help with the adult education project. The short term projects are new this year. Karen Conrad, head of this project, said it has been developed to help Scott students to get out and become aware of events in the Atlanta area and the U.S. The program, done in conjunction with established organizations like the Red Cross and YWCA, will try to fill a particular need as it arises. The Brownie Scout project is headed by freshman Mary Jane Morris. Scott girls will be the leaders of the troop. PAGE 2 THE PROFILE OCTOBER 4. I96S EDITOR BUSINESS MANAGER ASSOCIATE EDITOR SANDRA EARLEY SHARON PLEMONS KAY PARKERSON THE / PROFILE Copy Editorials Features Campus News Advertising Elizabeth Crum Anne Willis Beverly Walker Alexa Mcintosh Catherine Auman / Who won? The decision Tuesday night was a difficult one to make and even more difficult one to accept. Even for those who voted to uphold the judicial recommendation, the announcement of the results of the voting fell heavily on those who had thought they were sure. The strong, almost too strong, feeling of responsibility shared by each person voting negated any relief that could have been felt. There could be no feeling of victory or defeat, of winning or losing. Those few people who resorted to clapping, and who excitedly embraced each other after the announcement, relegated the meeting for themselves to the importance of a hockey game. These people could not have considered deeply and carefully, for the issue was not an absolutely clear-cut one. Winning and losing cannot be issues. Hopefully, everyone won something - an understanding of responsibility if nothing else. For one person, it is hoped that in losing one thing, a very valuable thing, she will gain something even more valuable, a degree of maturity. But nobody can be sure. Judicial members experience this kind of responsibility each week. They are no different from the rest of us, except that they are willing to do this job of judging in spite of the doubt and the responsibility of making a decision for someone else. Many of us avoid having to make decisions that affect only our own lives. We withdraw even more when our decision will shape another's future. But this is what community, brotherhood, concern and love are all about. If we gain nothing else from the ordeal, we have a new understanding of, a new respect for, judicial members. Most of us, in the light of our short term as judges, are quite relieved to turn the job back over to them.

Special articles will look at "/'/? loco parentis, " the Board of Trustees and the views of last year's junior year abroad students. To the Editor: I realize I laid myself open to criticism when I made the statement regarding Agnes Scott as a racist institution and I welcome the opportunity to "defend" my statement. First, I'd like to say that I'm not hiding behind the facade of "the great white liberal" and pointing an accusing finger at the "establishment." Rather I see the whole question of racism in America (as documented by the Kerner report) as a more personal matter and one that each individual must tackle within himself. I'm not accusing ASC of discri minatory admittance policies; the fact of the matter is that few black students have the academic background or the economic standing to apply to ASC. In this respect Agnes Scott is Debree deplores detraction Dear Madam Editor: Agnes Scott has yet another big issue to discuss, evaluate, and consider this year. Admittedly, trash on the campus is bad, but is it worse than the ultramodern blue and white trash cans that now grace our campus? Prominently displayed almost everywhere, the structures distract ones attention from other points of interest. And the color-if they are blue and white, why could they not have been purple and white? And there is something about the little blue pennants pleading for k 'help" that tends to degrade the whole concept of school spirit. If pennants, why not little Scottie dogs pleading that trash be deposited in the cans? The illusion of spaciousness and openness achieved by the delicate arches at the top of the cans is altered as one scans the lower extremities and sees the locks which assure that our garbage will only be rumbled through by authorized personnel. Perhaps in a few years Scott students will be confronted with the desirability of personal keys to the trash cans. Dana was planned and constructed to blend with the campus, and this effort was quite successful. Is it too much to ask that the trash cans also harmonize to a degree with our Gothic halls? I recommend the formation of a committe e~ COG the Committee on Garbage-to look into the matter. Yours truly, I.C. Debree only a reflection of the larger society. I think we can label this whole phenomenon "racism" (sorry) because it does assume a position of white superiority. I don't think it's racist to recognize that another individual has a different color skin or different features from your own - this is obviously visual. But racism comes in when the color or features of another individual are used in stereotyping. Many of our subtle racist attitudes are not intellectual reactions, but rather those of the gut and something much harder to define and deal with (dangling preposition). I am examining my own racist attitudes their origin and cures; I think perhaps individual answers will be the only way to solve nationwide problems. Sincerely, Gayle B Grubb, '69 by sandra earley Once upon a time in the olden days when knighthood was in flower and brave men fought mighty dragons to win the hands of blushing young maidens, there lived a doorknob. He was no ordinary doorknob; he was made of the finest brass and opened the door to the kitchen of the most pious nunnery in all Christendom. Each morning he was polished and oiled by an eight-year old potboy so he could perform his duties all day with nary a squeak or grind. He tried to carry out his duties faithfully and well because he loved his home and the nuns so much. But our little doorknob had one failing. He loved oil to distraction. If offered a few extra squirts, he simply couldn't resist it. Now the potboy realized the doorknob's craving and because he loved him and wanted him to be happy, he occasionally slipped him an extra drop or two. Early one morning when the potboy had finished polishing and oiling the doorknob for the day, the doorknob called to the boy as he was leaving to put away his cloth and oil can. The door knob begged the boy for just a little more oil that morning. It had rained the night before, the door knob explained, and he felt a real rust coming on. Wouldn't he please give him just a drop or two more? The potboy stood and jiggled his oil can. There was only a little oil left in the can and he was going to have to fill it anyway so he might as well empty the rest of it into his friend. The doorknob hung motionless waiting for the oil to sink in. Suddenly it hit him. He felt more smooth and greased inside than he had ever felt. He had the nicest slippery feeling. He started swinging his door a little on its hinges. The better he felt the more he swung. He swung back and forth on his hinges banging the wall on one side and slamming the door jam on the other. Then he started singing to himself. Ker-r-r-hic! Ker-r-r-hic! He made so much noise that all the other doorknobs in the building stood wide open listening to him. The noise disturbed the good nuns at their prayers and they all rushed into the kitchen to gape at the well-oiled doorknob. The whole community was scandalized. The idea of any doorknob behaving like that! Something ought to be done about him! Maybe we ought to take him off the door and make a lamp base out of him! That was the start of it all. Somehow the nuns never got back to their prayers, much less their work with the poor in the village. They just couldn't forget the doorknob's behavior or stop discussing it. Even the other doorknobs remained with their doors standing wide open they were so shocked. Soon the nunnery fell into disrepair. The nuns did not notice the decline: they were too busy debating whether or not lampbasinghim wjs too harsh a penalty. With the doors standing wide open, robbers walked brazenly into the nunnery and took what they wanted. Soon there was no nunnery left and the nuns walked away from the ruined building into the sunset still arguing the oiling policy. OCTOBER 4, 1968 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 Dean endorses marijuana smoking -ST. LOUIS, MO.,-(I.P.)- tk Go ahead and smoke marijuana," said the dean, "just don't get caught." Probably no college administrator has ever given such advice. But Howard S. Becker, a Northwestern University sociologist, believes that such an attitude on the part of deans is the only way that campus drug incidents can be halted. Becker writing in "Trans-action," a social science publication of Washington University, does not believe that student drug use can be stopped. "Students want to use drugs and can easily do so; few college administrations will decide to use the totalitarian methods that would be required to stop it. "One might institute a daily search of all rooms and perhaps, In addition, inaugurate a campus 'stop-and-frisk' law. But they are not going to do these things, so student drug use will continue." Becker believes that the deans are worried about student drug use, but they are more worried about the "great public-relations crisis" of campus narcotics raids and students on trial. Yet, Becker argues, the more administrators worry about student drug use, the more such embarassing incidents they will have to deal with. "All increases in surveillance, of course, multiply the number of cases that come to public attention," Becker says. Becker's arguments are mainly based on marijuana-smoking, which he says is more widely used than LSD. Marijuana, he says, causes student health services much less trouble than alcohol or the amphetamines that many students take to stay awake while studying. "Marijuana," Becker says, "has no demonstrable bad effects." Becker draws on his sociological studies of drug use to note that drug-taking students of today are quite unlike earlier drug users, who learned to be careful about hiding their habit. Today's students, he says, get caught because they are either ignorant of the precautions they might take to protect themselves from arrest, or are convinced that they have "a constitutional right to get high." "Administrators," Becker concludes, "must take a calmer view of drug use and students must become more cautious. The main obstacles to such a bargain will be nervous administrators afraid to take such a step and ideological students who wish a confrontation on the issue. But college administrators have learned to live with sex and drink. They may yet be able to learn to live with drugs." More student power urged at Wisconsin MADISON, WIS.-(I.I\)-A University of Wisconsin faculty c o m mitt e e h a s o f f e i c d r e c o m mendations which according to the student newspaper, the Daily Cardinal -"should put Wisconsin ahead of any major university in the country in expanding the role of students in the governing of the institution."

"...practically complete withdrawal by the University from its in loco parentis activities.. .an end to regualtion of students' off-campus lives and of such aspects of their on-campus nonacademic affairs as hours regulations. All students over age 20, and all students under that age who are married or who have parental permission, should be able to live in housing of their choice." 2 . "...broader student participation in various forms in practically all areas of University government..." 3 . 1 4 . . . greater student self-governing authority... the elimination of the present Student Life and Interests Committee. ..distribution of its powenamong Wisconsin Student Association and smaller, joint student-faculty committees..." 4.

PAGE 4 THE PROFILE OCTOBER 4, 196S PEGBOARD REP COUNCIL PASSED two resolutions at its first regular meeting Tuesday. The first provided for the creation of the position of vice-chairman of the Judicial Board. The new position will provide a more adequate separation of powers within student government. The present membership of Judicial was also changed by this RC so that if the resolution is passed by the student body, in the spring elections eight senior judicials will be elected instead of the former nine, seven juniors instead of eight, six sophomores instead of four and three freshmen instead of two. This change will allow for more adequate representation. The second resolution passed regarded special elections. Whenever an elected office becomes vacant or a new office is deemed necessary, a special election may be held during the year. This new RC will provide for the election of the vice-chairman of Judicial. The board was of the opinion that the qualifications for this office should be the same as those for other board vice-presidents. Any present member of Judicial is free to run for the new office. DR. WALTER B. POSEY, professor of history and political science, has made a gift of his frontier religion collection to Agnes Scott College. This collection consists of 625 books and 108 articles and reprints. "We think it's a very fine gift," said Dr. Wallace M. Alston, president of the college. The collection will remain intact and will be kept in a reserved room which will serve as Dr. Posey's office, so that the collection will remain accessible to him indefinately. Dr. Posey will serve as curator of the collection. Dr. Posey is a specialist in the area of frontier religion and since 1933 has published five books on this subject. The books, articles and reprints of which his gift to our college is composed are some of the source material that he used in researching his five books. Dr. Posey has been associated with the Agnes Scott faculty for the past 25 years, and according to Dr. Walter E. McNair, director of public relations "he's one of Agnes Scott's most popular professors." In fact, his daughter is even an Agnes Scott alumna. WAIGHTES G.

The Cuzco School of colonial painting lasted for three centuries and centered around Cuzco, Peru, which had been the capital of the Inca Empire 0 "This school is one of the best examples of how Christian iconography has penetrated and changed for ever a native Indian art," said de Bone' in a pamphlet entitled "Three Centuries of Indian Art in the High Andes."

Congressional funding for Department of State grants in Fiscal Year 1969 (July 1, 1968 - June 30, 1969) is substantially below last year's total. It is not possible, therefore, to assure candidates of the availability for all countries of the grants shown in the printed announcements already issued. Reductions will be applied most heavily in the categories of grants for Americans to go overseas at this time. Competition for such grants will, therefore, be all the keener. The number of 1969-70 grants for Americans may, on the average, be reduced as much as two-thirds from the preceding year. With competition greatly increased, only candidates who fully meet eligibility reuirements and other selection criteria will be considered. Applicants must be U.S. citizens at the time of application, must generally be proficient in the language of the host country, and, except where noted below, must have a bachelor's degree or its equivalent by the beginning date of the grant. Students who already hold the doctoral degree are not eligible to apply. Preference will be given to candidates who have had no previous extended study or residence abroad and who are under 35 years of age. Selections will be made on the basis of academic and/or the be: professional record, the feasibility of the applicant's proposed study plan, his personal qualifications and evidence that his selection for a grant would help to advance the aims of the program. Two types of grants are available through HE under the Fulbright-Hays Act: U.S. Government Full Grants and U. S. Government Travel Grants. A full award will provide a grantee with tuition, maintenance for one academic year in one country, round-trip transportation, health and accident insurance and an incidental allowance. Countries participating in full grant program will Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgiu m-Lexembourg, Brazil, Ceylon, Chile, Republic of China, C olombia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, the Philippines, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Trinidad, Turkey, the United Kingdom Uruguay, and Venezuela. To supplement maintenance and tuition scholarships granted to American students by universities, private donors and foreign governments, a limited number of travel grants are available. In addition to the grants offered by the U.S. Government, the Institute also administers approximately 100 awards offered to American graduate students by several foreign governments, universities and private donors.

THE ROFILE VOLUME LV NUMBER 4 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 OCTOBER 11, 196H Alston wants relationship of 'friends' by CAROL BANISTER The simple definition of the Latin phrase '7/2 loco parents" is something which stands in the place of parents. The question of whether a college or university should stand "in loco parentis" is one of the major campus problems of today. A ccording to Martha M. Traylor, visiting professor of political science, the original definition was used to define the state's adoption of foundling children. The court met at the "temple" and it was not uncommon to find abandoned children on the steps. The state would adopt them, giving them the last name "Temple" and would stand literally "in loco parentis". Today, the definition includes anyone who has adopted a child and is a common phrase used to express the position of the administrations of many colleges and universities. In what way does this phrase apply to Agnes Scott? Does Agnes Scott try to stand "in loco parentis"? Is it good or harmful for an administration to try to take the place of parents? Whatever the policy of Agnes Scott has been in the past, the trend in 1968-69 is definitely away from a parent-child relationship. Dr. Wallace M. Alston, president of the college, said it will not be an easy break, but will take careful and gradual planning and cooperation between the administration, faculty, and students. Dr. Alston admits that he does not like to think of himself as a substitute parent, but would prefer a "friend to friend relationship to that of a parent to child." He fells that the administration "would welcome a new image to college responsibility. " His theory is that the goal for Agnes Scott should be one of "shared responsibility in which the college is run as a cooperation between students and older friends. " He thinks that we should "rebuild and restate the college's relationship to the home and student and not take the place of parents. " We have all seen this idea taking effect. More and more responsibility is being placed in the hands of the student. The new dress policy, the new sign-out policy, and the new apartment policy are all signs of the forward movement of the campus. Tina Brownley, president of student government, is working on a new drinking policy which in essence would place the responsibility directly on the student body. The very honor system upon which the whole Agnes Scott community exists is testimony that we are gradually moving away from the "in loco parentis" idea. The destruction of the idea of "in loco parentis" is a goal for each of us as students. Whether or not it succeeds is dependent upon the student body and our actions. It cannot be achieved unless we are willing to cooperate with the administration, faculty, and our elected representatives. Are we mature enough and ready to accept this responsibility? This question can only be answered with time. It is up to us to see that the progress already made and that which is in the formative stage does not go unrewarded. IN LOCO PARENTIS: The age-old dispute between students and colleges Italy, Spain: principle strictly enforced by BRIAN BRAUN College Press Service The degree to which European universities adhere to the concept of "in loco parentis" is manifest in a spectrum of official administration doctrines. The forms of university-imposed student restructions in Europe follow roughly the same outlines American administrators have adopted in the past. In the United States, these regulations have taken the form of restrictions on where students may live, when they must return to their dorms at night, visitation bans and drinking, smoking and automobile regulations. WHILE MANY ITALIAN, Spanish and Greek universities have been painfully slow in abandoning the "in loco parentis" thesis, several newer British universities have chosen a laissez faire attitude toward non-academic student life. The administration of Keele University, one of the newest English institutions, is representative of this new concept. A school with an enrollment of roughly 1,500, Keele has trusted the student with his own private life. Only freshmen are required to live in university housing and no closing hours are kept in any of the university's dormitories. Visitation (men are allowed in women's rooms and vice versa) has been unregulated by the university since its inception. According to the students at Keele, few problems have resulted from the position taken by the administration. BARBARA DEW, A SENIOR at the university, said, "Most of the students are serious enough about their educations to take care of themselves. The men and the women know they have to be up for classes the next day and most of them get in at reasonable hours. "As for men going into women's rooms, all I can say is that it doesn't happen too often - what can you do when there's a roommate around? You can always do what you want anyway somewhere more private. One thing I should tell you though, is that almost all the students at my university live on campus even though they don't have to - it's the best housing around." In direct contrast to the system at Keele is the situation which exists at many universities in Italy and to an even greater extent, Spain. THE UNIVERSITY OE BARCELONA keeps close tabs on each of its students. In addition to regulating student housing, the administration restricts the speech of the students by taking action against persons who speak out against the interests of the university or government. The sentences may take the form of expulsion from the university, army service, trial in civil court or lesser punishments. In addition, students find their dorms closed tight at 12 p.m., visitation is not permitted, and no student organizations which might threaten the dictates of the faculty are permitted. copyright 1968 by University of Illinois "lllini" Cooperative housing for more student freedom WASHINGTON (CPS)--One of the little-noted facets of the student drive for independence and control over their own institutions is a small but growing cooperative housing movement among students and young people on campuses and in cities. Wanting to excape from dormitories and trying to find an inexpensive way to live in a congenial group, many students have started "co-ops" ranging in size from five to fifty. Some of them have expanded from simple sharing of food and shelter to starting "free universities" within their communities. Co-ops at such schools as the Universities of Michigan and Wisconsin have been running for more than 30 years. A NEW ORGANIZATION, the North American Student Cooperative League, has been set up in Washington to serve as an information center for existing co-ops and to promote new ones. Its staff contains experts on the architecture, mechanics and psychology of cooperative living; and it is holding a conference beginning today for students who want to learn more about setting up a co-op. He says the cooperative housing movement has grown as students realize that owning their own "space," rather than living in administration-controlled space like dormitories, is a major step toward changing their education. They choose cooperatives, rather than one- or two-man apartments, because "they want to learn to live and share with other human beings." THE MOVEMENT, GLASSMAN thinks, grew out of the same frustration that motivated the hippies to establish communities. Cooperatives do not take after hippie communities when it comes to property-sharing, however. Most have some common space in a large house and share food and cleaning chores, but few hold all money and property in common. Most co-ops on college campuses are now co-ed-often because college rules forbid such housing for students. This Glassman calls unfortunate-after all. "men need to learn how to live with women," and most of them never learn that. The co-op housing movement may turn into a boom, as even the federal government recognizes its legitimacy. The InterCooperative Council at the University of Michigan recently received a $1 million loan from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to build a cooperative residence - marking the first time HUS has given money to a student group to build student housing. The Student Cooperative League hopes through its conference to "impress on us both our need and our ability to control the environment we live in." The League sees their project as one that is especially relevant to campuses now, but also as one that could have a far-reaching effect on city planning and ghetto problems. They call low rent cooperative housing a "viable alternative to absentee landlordism"-giving people a direct stake in their residence and how it is run. PAGE 2 THE PROFILE OCTOBER 11, 196S Mortar Board study: little can be done about by KAY PARKERSON Associate Editor The 1967-68 chapter of Mortar Board, interested in the make-up of the Agnes Scott student body, last year studied the question of its practical integration, integration of region, as well as of race. To quote the statement of Sally Elberfeld and Eleanor McCallie, who conducted the study: "We wanted to know if the complaint that the student body of Agnes Scott was too homogenous and restricted valuable cultural interaction and exposure was a valid one." Several Mortar Board members discussed the question with Dean of the Faculty C. Benton Kline. They decided "all efforts that could be made with limited financial resources were being made already.... "THE DIFFICULTIES OF INTEGRATION are numerous: (1) students are not adequately prepared; THE HOMOGENEOUS STUDENT BODY iff- < (2) when they are, they either wish to go to a prestige school or are offered more lucrative scholarships; (3) there is difficulty in recruiting (being accepted) at Negro high schools." When asked why Mortar Board was moved to look into this area, Mary Chapman, 1968-69 president of the group, replied, "Curiosity was the stimulus." Mortar Board was also interested in the percentages of Agnes Scott students coming from outside the South. The first figures available on student distribution are for the 191 1-12 term. In that year, two per cent (three girls) of the student body were from outside the South. Three per cent were foreign students. FROM THAT TIME up to the present, the combined non-South total has hovered between two and eight per cent. The dizzying height of eight per cent was achieved in 1962 and has refused to budge ever since. With the student body at its present size of around 750, this percentage means only 60 students, 60 students whose background is potentially a mite different from yours and all those other girls from your hometown. The suggestions which Mortar Board gives at the end of its statement all deal with the racial question. Nothing startling is offered, and in their words, "the suggestions we have primarily involve working within the present system." THEY SUGGEST MORE involvement in intercollegiate programs, especially with Negro colleges in the area. They recommend using, "the Atlanta and Decatur communities to help with and realize the different economic situations." The board also suggests setting up a scholarship fund to provide for a Negro student. Mary Chapman was asked what Mortar Board has done to implement its suggestions. She answered, "There's nothing that could be done with it. It was mostly done to find out how things are and inform the student body. No progress has been made, again there is little that can be done." Kline has seen no interest in black studies at ASC by ELIZABETH MATHES There has been a growing concern for Afro-American studies expressed on many college campuses, with much of the activity precipitated by the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King last spring. Many educators, as well as students, have been accused of neglecting black students and black culture in their curriculum plans and thereby, ignoring or downplaying an important facet of the nation's culture. Student and faculty groups at many schools are pressing for more emphasis on the Negro in America - his history and contributions to society, and his political and intellectual evolution from slave into militant. Most of the new courses in black studies deal with Negro literature, languages, Negro-American history music and folk lore. Also common are courses on poverty, race relations and other sociology courses. IT IS INTERESTING to examine the relationship of Agnes Scott campus to the concern expressed at other schools. In an interview with Dean of the Faculty C. Benton Kline, he was asked whether there had been any student interest in or request for courses specifically concerned with "black culture." He quickly replied, "None expressed to mc.*' Dean Kline then discussed the question of the need for such courses on the Agnes Scott campus. Citing Spellman and Morehouse as examples, he said there was a great deal of controversy in the Negro colleges and universities over whether separate "black" courses should be set up or whether more emphasis could be given to the Negro within the context of existing fields of study. He went on to say that for the Negro, the big question is that of identity, and that there is real conflict internally for them between the expectations of white culture, which they have accepted, and the desire to be something different, which they are. FOR THEM, THE IMPORTANT thing is to define their own culture so that they can build an "identity that is black like they are." The Negro can thus understand and need special courses in Negro culture, etc., although they would tend to separate him from the complete society in which he lives. For the white person on a smaller campus such as Agnes Scott, the need is somewhat different. "Because we will live in a more and more highly integrated world, we will have to be conscious of the problems that will face us," said Dean Kline. The question for us is whether greater separation, rather than greater understanding, will be achieved by the study of "black" culture, and whether the approach of social psychology and anthropology would not be more helpful, he explained. In discussing the problem of courses on this campus, he said it is the purpose of college to change attitudes without intentionally editorializing. THE TEACHER CONVEYS an attitude simply because he is a person confronting people who are involved with material and learning. Because of the people who teach here, it is more than probable that "there will be more and more within courses without making it a big issue here," he suggested. To deal on a more concrete level with the somewhat ephemeral concern of Scotties for "the cross-cultural experience," it is worthy of note that Agnes Scott now has three scholarship funds available for Negro students: the Martin Luther King Scholarship Fund, sponsored by Christian Association, which now stands at one thousand dollars and is still open to contributions; the Class of 1968 class gift; and a scholarship given by an alumna in honor of her parents. OCTOBER II, 1968 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 By alumnae wmmmmmmmmmmm who teach and work on campus Agnes Scott in perspective by BEVERLY WALKER Feature Editor How many of us can imagine coming hack to Agnes Scott after four years of tough work? Now that classes have begun, many of us feel that we will never make it through. And, if we do make it, we are quite sure we will never come back. This year however, we have recent five Agnes Scott graduates back on campus. Pat Matsen, 4 55, visiting professor of classical languages and literature is glad to be back at Scott. One of the things Mrs. Matsen likes about Scott is the way the administration and students communicate with each other. She approves of the students questioning attitude and their awareness of what is going on around them. Of the students, Mrs. Matsen says, "It's nice to have intelligent students again." She has taught at Hoilins, Randolph Macon and Converse. Sally Gladden, l 65, is now secretary to the registar-director of admissions. Back on campus, she says everything is basically the same. In mentioning the new social regulations, she said, "the rules have definitely been progressive." Mrs. Gladden also noticed an By Students mmmmmmmmmmmm after junior year abroad by JAN ROUSH It is only when we step back from a situation that we can view it in a non-objective light. Few students at Agnes Scott have, in their four years here, the opportunity to see their Scott from a different perspective - evaluate its advantages and disadvaptages - and then return to the situation. BACK AT AGNES SCOTT after a year abroad, seniors Pam O'Neal (L), Frankie Ansley and Jo Wilson gathered to compare their experiences in Europe with their current situation at Agnes Scott. Three Seniors who have just returned from the junior year abroad - Jo Wilson at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, England, Frankie Ansley at Acadamie Julian in the University System, Paris, France, and Pam O'Neal at Philipp University, Marburg, Germany were questioned because they have had this opportunity for realistic introspection. After their studies abroad, the academic life at Agnes Scott looked very good. European universities are operated on an entirely different system. The girls report that students are freer to explore every field in the system, and then when they find the field they really are interested in they are better students with a much higher level of comprehension. However, Pam, Jo and Frankie were all quick to add that they thought our liberal arts program is necessary because of American high schools. They all understand the need for our "required" courses now. "The disadvantage," says Pam O'Neal, "is that they have to be 'required'." The European student is more mature as a freshman, probably because he is about 20 years old. Therefore, he is more capable of making decisions about courses. As to class differences, they feel that the A.S.C. seniors do not feel much different than they did as freshmen, because they "haven't gotten to make many of their own decisions." Like we always seem to do in discussing Scott today, we have divided the academic from the social realm. After their contact with European students and their way of life, the three girls had some interesting thoughts on the social rules and life at the college. Jo Wilson said, "We had no rules, and nothing went on that doesn't happen here." "Yes," said Frankie Ansley, "school was your academic center, and was not life-controlling." Dating in Europe is done mostly in groups, where everyone pays. It shocked Frankie the first time a boy bought one ticket. "The Germans have to use our English word for 'date'. It is so different there. Everyone goes to someone's apartment and the host brings out the jugs of wine," related Pam. It is interesting to note two of A.S.C.'s major policies at this point. The girls had some definite thoughts on the Honor System at Agnes Scott. It should be abolished, but Scott is not set up as a university but as a church school, so that will never happen one commented. The main problem is that the principle behind the school is not relative to the metropolitan area in which it is located another said. The Honor System serves its purpose academically. Jo says she found it annoying to have professors patroling during tests "but that is the only aspect of the Honor System I missed." When asked about the results the girls have noticed of last year's changes, they feel they have not been back long enough to evaluate many of them. However, Pam said, "The sign out system is ridiculous. Knowing that you are in the Atlanta Area does not serve any purpose because they still couldn't find you. All three girls learned in their junior year abroad that someone needs to know where you are, which students here never are able to understand because they are required to sign out by a certain method. Pam, Jo and Frankie all feel the faculty should encourage the junior year abroad program more. They said this is such a great opportunity to learn so much and get to see what Europe is like, but it is not offered to you. Once they had planned it for themselves, they found the faculty and administration very cooperative. After having this experience, they encourage everyone to go to Europe for travel and study. improvement in the food. "Of course," she added, "now that Pm cooking, 1 can't afford to criticize." A "67 graduate, Lucy H. Lewis, returned to a fifth year at Scott as secretary to Dr. Alston. Concerning new social rules, Lucy said she is now more conscious of the value of rules. She has great respect for the fact that the honor system exists and hopes it continues to work. Asking Lucy if she had any advice to give those of us still struggling through, she emphasized, "Extra-curricular activities are important. The more you get involved the better you come out in the long run." Linda Woods is back on campus as an assistant professor of English. She is presently a Ph.D. candidate at Emory. When asked how she liked being back, Mrs. Woods answered that it was a natural transition. At Wednesday's chapel she felt a little nostalgia as the "Tired Old Seniors" march commenced. Kay McCracken, a '67 graduate is also back. She is working in the biology department and hopes to inspire in freshmen a new interest (instead of terror) in biology. Kay said she does feel a little funny being classified as faculty. "I think everybody gets a big chuckle out of it," she commented. DECATUR, GEORGIA WINKLER Gulf Service 102 W.

Admittedly, the reasons are sometimes valid. Nevertheless, one grows weary of the "same old excuses" over and over. The issues of black power, black culture and effective communication between races are ones that must be met soon or not at all. Such phrases as "incorporation into the existing system" and "working with what we have" begin to sound like limp gestures that will make no significant differences. Black history and culture have been neglected too long. Encourgaging professors, who have traditionally ignored it, to incorporate such material into existing courses will hardly cause them to revolutionize their approach. Special emphasis is now needed to compensate for years of neglect. The knowledge of black culture and history is vital for understanding between races. A matter of pride for the black man becomes a matter of recognition and acceptance on the white man's part. However, the teaching of black subjects as isolated entities would serve to separate especially when taught by white professors to classes of white students. We recognize the need for more black students. But what about black professors? Perhaps they cannot be obtained through "existing A CLO seup view of one channels." So what?

Artificial, contrived situations like seminars and brief exchange programs will only emphasize the differences between blacks and whites. What we really need, after we know the differences, is the opportunity to see beyond them. Only through personal interaction in the routine of daily life can we see the basic similarities which define people as people. Perspective Wilson wants open dorms by ELIZABETH CRUM THE BILLBOARD, Wilson College: Wilson College is a northeastern Presbyterian women's college very much like Agnes Scott. Last winter Wilson's president, Dr. Paul Havens, spoke at our Founders Day Convocation. The following is a condensed editoral. "Every fall, as the freshmen learn to accomodate themselves to the never ending pageant of social life on campus, the same old question is asked "What is there to do with a date who's here for the weekend?" At Wilson the girls have no place on campus to take a date for a quiet talk, a cup of coffee, or to listen to records without fear of interruption from faculty members, lit t le men and women, and fellow students. Therefore, the editoral board of "The Billboard" has called for an Open House Policy "for the benefit of reasonable and intelligent young women." The Open House Policy would permit students to have visitors (male) in their room on Saturdays from l to 5:30 p.m. and from 7 to 1 1 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 to 6 p.m. ** * HOLLINS COLUMNS. Hollins College: "Does a good intention justify I weekly chapel requirement?" The editoral board feels that because the Wednesday chapel is compulsory, the chapel service must be sensitive to more than the personal interest or talents of single individuals. "If obligatory chapels are to be a part of the educational system, they should educate and be pertinent to the needs of the community and to the community's relation to the world." *** THE EMORY WHEEL , Emory University: The Community Services Committee of the Student Center Board is sponsoring a two-week "Give a Damn" campaign. The campaign serves two purposes: to publicize the existence of the committee, and to "get the Emory student body to 'give a damn' about the deplorable conditions that exist in certain economically disadvantaged Atlanta communities." In order to facilitate the achievement of these goals, the committee is sponsoring five projects in which all students may participate. There are four basically tutorial projects and one relative unstructured general community aid project. Klan steals Campus Date Book In a lightning raid late Tuesday night, nine white-sheeted and bookstore-bagged figures descended on the Dean of Students Office forceably removing the two green-covered Campus Date Books lying unobtrusively on a side counter. The raid was made without protest from the students loitering -in the hall or the distraught dean's staffer in the office. A date waiting in the hall did look a little startled however. A daring figure wearing a green-striped sheet and bearing a loaded and dripping gun led the ingenious caper. Informed sources said the act was conceived as a protest against the innocuous, but worrisome Campus Date Book. In a joint press conference later Tuesday night, Tina Brownley, president of student government, and Lou Frank, chairman of judicial council, termed the deed "appalling" and said that changes can be accomplished by working through existing channels and force is not necessary. The crime was pulled off about 11 p.m. local time (by the D. O. clock) when two lines of hooded and draped figures tripped down the hall converging from two sides on the unsuspecting and undefended (the campus security force was occupied elsewhere) Dean's Office. As the two groups rushed in, a long distance telephone call conducted in Spanish was curtly and rudely interrupted as the caller jumped up, ran to the back door of the office and heroically collided with the green-striped ring leader. The sheeted figure however, was undismayed and continued with her dastardly mission, brandishing her gun. The only protest from the confused dean's staffer was, "Are you the Ku Ku Klan?" As the leader of each of the two lines grabbed one of unassuming little green bodes, the second figure in each line threw a white card down on the large desk in the office. It was later discovered that each of the Campus Date Books had properly signed out. They were even found to be properly chaperoned - "The Campus Date Book" was out with "Our Campus Date Book." Before anyone realized what had occured, the so-dubbed Ku Ku Klan ran for its two get-away cars parked with motors racing in front of the building. One car was off with a roar while the other managed to get away with a sputter. The last car tooted its horn brazenly and triumphantly as it rolled down the drive to an unknown rendezvous point. The theft was not immediately discovered, however. The Campus Date Books were found to be missing about fifteen minutes after the raid when a senior (?) came into the office to sign in her campus date. Informed sources said the figures could not be conclusively identified - no distinguishing laundry marks were seen. The only outstanding characteristics were three pairs of tennis shoes (blue), two pairs of rah-rahs (one dirty, one clean), two pairs of loafers (brown) and one pair of muk-luks. One typical Agnes Scott student who was studying in a smoker on campus reported later that she had left the smoker earlier in the evening to ask a strange-looking group of nine people to be quiet. Her only comment was, "I didn't think anything about it. I had to get back to my studying." The raid was undoubtedly cowardly and unnecessary, but the Ku Ku Klan really can't be all bad. According to informed sources, the Campus Date Books were found in plain brown wrappers on Dean of the Faculty C. Benton Kline's desk Wednesday morning after the klan had tried unsuccessfully to hock them for enough money to buy a beer all around. The daring klan might even be called a bit kute - even affectionate. The wrapper the books were returned in was inscribed with a message in the hand of the green-striped Grand Kluck. It read, "To Dean Kline, with love, the Ku Ku Klan."

The last member of the Board of Trustees is the Mayor of Atlanta, Ivan Allen Jr. Just what DOES by KAY PARKERSON Associate Editor 'accredited college' mean? Agnes Scott College states in its catalogue that it was admitted to membership in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 1907. This made it an established institution of higher learning and added credence to its avowals of academic excellence. But what is the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools? Why can it put the final stamp of approval on such an establishment? The association itself in its statement of purpose, affirms that "Accreditation permits order and cooperation amid diverse programs and widely varying objectives.. ..Without accreditation, chaos would rule; faith in the educational enterprise would be undermined and its effectiveness stifled." THE ACCREDITATION MACHINERY is divided regionally to permit freer action on the local level and still excape "provincialism." The association is organized to provide representation from each school in a Delegate Assembly. Each school is represented by one delegate. There are approximately 400 member schools in the South. A Commission on Colleges is composed of 54 members chosen from the Delegate Assembly. The representation is divided between delegates from each state and members elected at large. The Commission in turn elects a nine member Executive Council which guides the commission in its activities. The commission however, is the body which makes the final decision or accreditation. The process of accreditation involves a report on the school, a visit by a committee of the association and a hearing by the commission. An initial accreditation must be reconfirmed by the commission after four years. Every ten years thereafter, each member school must also initiate a self-study to retain its status as an accredited institution. THE COLLEGE DELEGATE ASSEMBLY has established 1 1 standards to outline their concept of a worthwhile institution. The standard ranges from a lofty conception of a school's purpose, to the more practical matters of organization and administration, educational and financial programs, faculty and student personnel and the library and physical plant. Contrary to public opinion, the standards are not hard and fast point by point rules on how to build a college from the ground up. Under the sub-heading of curriculum for example, the handbook on standards states, "The implementation of the general policy and the determination of specific academic details are the responsibility of the administration and the faculty." ::v::::::::v::v::vv.:.x^^ "It is finally concerned however, with the totality of the effort, and the atmosphere in which it is carried on. " A similar freedom is spelled out concerning hours and required basic courses. The recommendation is that "In each degree program, there should be an orderly and identifiable sequence of courses with an adequate number of hours required in courses above the elementary level, and with an appropriate system of prerequisite." The Delegate Assembly goes on to set up guidelines for minimum educational expenditures per student, to support tenure and academic freedom and generally to touch on every aspect of college life. BUT A STRICT conformance with each detail recommended by the Delegate Assembly is not the only result desired by the association. In their own words, "Meeting each standard is not all that is required for accrediation by the Southern Association. Assuredly the committee is interested in the qualifications of faculty, the state of academic freddom, the library size, and numerous other educational factors in an institutional operation. "It is finally concerned however, with the totality of the effort, and the atmosphere in which it is carried on." PAGE 6 THE PROFILE OCTOBER 1 1. 1968 MTMM OF 35000 F66T.

Bond refuses U.T. speaking spot KNOXVILLE, TENN. (CPS)-Georgia legislator Julian Bond, scheduled to address University of Tennessee students October 2, refused to appear in Knoxville because students there had been forbidden to invite Dick Gregory to the campus a week earlier. "If the chancellor of the university thinks the students are too simple-minded to hear Gregory, they are obviously too simple-minded to hear me," Bond said when he discovered he had been invited in Gregory's place. "1 certainly don't want to poison student minds." Chancellor Charles H. Weaver had denied a student speakers' program permission to invite Gregory, saying he had "nothing to say to the University community" and that his appearance would be "an outrage and an insult to many citizens of this state." About Bond's cancellation, Weaver only said, "I am sorry that he is not coming." ''It's not a matter of Gregory himself," Bond said. "It's a matter of students' being allowed to make their own decisions. I wouldn't care if it were Harry Truman or George Wallace being denied permission. The issue would be the same-freedom of choice." Bond, who was nominated for the Vice-Presidency at last month's Democratic National Convention and later withdrew because he was too young, compared the UT administration censorship with that of other Tennessee schools, where Gregory and other controversial speakers had been invited to campus freely. The question of an open speaker policy-whereby any recognized student organization could invite any speaker to campus-has been the foremost topic of student discussion at UT during the first two weeks of the fall quarter. Although student body president Chris Whittle seemed singularly unconcerned about the issue Bond raised, saying only that "his remarks would have been of educational value," other students and faculty members on a joint committee worked two months this summer on a report on student rights and responsibilities. The report, completed late in August, was submitted to Weaver, who has been "studying it" since then. He said he will call a meeting of the university's statewide administration to consider speaker policy proposals. Job placement by computer? A GROUP OF BRIGHT young men, all recently siuuents, operating in a chaotic Madison Avenue office, think they have the answer for recruiting-using a computer as a central information agency to match a large number of college students with a large number of prospective employers. They have formed a corporation, called Re-Con (a shortening of "reconnaissance"), which will for the first time this fall involve several hundred companies and thousands of students in a sophisticated matching process which, according to the men running it, will place applicants in jobs they probably won't want to leave after a year, and will give small companies a new advantage in competing for college graduates. Representatives on 500 college and university campuses (including the 400-odd National Student Association member schools) will distribute special questionnaires to business and engineering students. These questionnaires ask the student to write his own subjective resume and to list his preference for type of employment, geographical location and educational background and interests. At the same time, businesses and industries looking for management personnel will file their job specifications with Re-Con. They pay for the service on a sliding rate scale varying with he number of applicants they are looking for and whether they want data on students in only one school, one state or across the country. AFTER THE COMPUTER has taken in all the employers and all the students' information on some day in late October, the companies will be given the names of all the students who fit most closely with their requirements. Then the companies will contact those individuals and set up a meeting. According to Ed Beagan, the main energy force behind Re-Con, the importance of the system is that it "puts the student in the driver's seat through the whole recruiting process-not the company and not the placement director." The service is, first of all, free to students. The cost of the operation is borne by the fees companies pay for the service. Then, all the student has to do is sit back and wait for the companies to come to him. When a firm calls a student and wants to see him, he knows that firm matched his specifications as well as he matched theirs. Even so, he is not obligated to talk with any company, and the terms are his. The process' other advantage, Beagan says, is that it "applies modern technology to a complicated process that's been carried on by horse-and-buggy methods." Computer data banking means students can be exposed to jobs they might otherwise have ignored, and firms without resources to send recruiters to many campuses will be able to extend their recruiting to students they would otherwise have missed. The system has it own shortcomings for large numbers of students. Of the four areas students follow-the professions, teaching, the arts, and business-industry, Re-Con is geared only to business-industry, with a small service for prospective teachers. This limits the students who can participate largely to graduates of business and engineering schools. The Re-Con people, however, hope if all goes well to be able to extend their service to these areas in a few years. Another type of student with which Re-Con is not yet equipped to deal is the "failure"-the student with an unimpressive academic record and no outstanding talent who would not tend to match the desires of any employer on paper, although he might in person give an entirely different feeling. For those it can serve, the system promises remarkable results. Last year a localized version of it (which expanded into the present Re-Con Corporation), created by a group of students at Pennsylvania University's Wharton Graduate School of Business, helped many of 500 Wharton graduates find jobs. The national directors hope they can do many times that well this fall. OCTOBER 11, 1968 THE PROFILF PAGE 7 What happens to Scotties after graduation? by BEVERLY WALKER Feature Editor Exactly what happens to a graduate of Agnes Scott? Many of us wonder what we will be doing after college. The seniors in particular are getting a little frantic. They react to the question "What are you doing next year?" with a slight trauma. The fact is many of us don't know what field we want to go into. We sometimes come to Scott with a major in mind. The fortunate few find satisfaction in their chosen fields and continue. More often however, we hear, "Well, I planned to major in English, but after that freshman English class... .May be I'll change to history." So we change our minds, cultivate new interests and find new satisfaction and challenges. Maybe we reflect: "Should I have come to a liberal arts college or gone to a university where I could take some business and home ec courses?" We hesitate: "Will Agnes Scott prepare me for the business world." A frantic, "Who will teach me to cook?" is often heard. With these question in mind, we decided to find out what happens to graduates of Agnes Scott. Each year lone Murphy, director of vocational services, gathers specifics about each graduating class. Because she is in the midst of this process, the following figures are estimates and represent the general trends. About 20 per cent of ASC graduates enter graduate and professional schools. Teaching claims about 35 per cent. Of the remaining 45 per cent, most enter the labor market. This is a relatively high percentage for a women's college, Miss Murphy said. According to Ann Worthy Johnson, director of alumnae affairs, there are five major areas of appeal. Writing, creative or journalistic, claims many graduates. Law, medicine and psychiatry are the professional appeals. Teaching claims one of the largest groups. Areas range from nursery school to college level. Christian education is also a field of interest. Raechel Handelite, the first woman in the U.S. to be ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian church, was a graduate of Agnes Scott. I.B.M. and computer programs attract Scott math majors. A fifth area is social work and service organizations. Where graduates live and seek work largely depends on families and personal preferences. It is interesting to note however, that approximately 60 per cent of each class wishes to remain in the Atlanta area. Miss Johnson estimates about 2,000 alumnae (including graduates and non-graduates) live in the Atlanta area. The fact that Agnes Scott graduates are able to succeed in their chosen fields is encouraging. And of course, the fact they actually survived at Scott is inspiring. PEGB0ARD JAMES MACKAY, DEMOCRATIC candidate for Congress from DeKalb County, will speak in Convocation October 16. His topic will be "The Democratic Cause, Platform and Candidates." His opponent, Representative Ben Blackburn, is tentatively scheduled to speak in convocation October 30. These speakers are part of an effort to bring the issues and candidates to the student body during the election year. "WAIT TIL THE MIDNIGHT HOUR" is the title of this year's Black Cat production. According to Mollie Douglas, it will be shorter than usual, but with a complex plot and more familiar songs. Carol Ann McKenzie plays the lead role of Nancy Drew, the super-sleuth. Elizabeth Jones is billed as the "chief blue meanie of the piece, but definitely a bungler." Hope Somers is Elizabeth's faithful lieutenant. Beth Herring and Judy Langford round out the major cast as Bess and George (George?), Nancy's "chums." Cameo appearances will be provided by many of the campus' famous and infamous personages. The plot is still secret, beyond the knowledge that it's a Nancy Drew mystery. In the words of Mollie Douglas, "It's supposed to be a mystery anyway, so we're just keeping it a mysterious mystery." THE HOCKEY SEASON opens Friday, October 18 with Scott's traditional Black Cat games in which the classes play each other in friendly rivalry. The players practiced together this past week in order to learn from each other and to get into shape since there are quite a few new participants. However, next week the players will split up into separate class practices so that they can get the feel of playing as a team. The new team managers are Prissy Ray burn, freshman; Page McCullough, sophomore; Cornelia DeLee, junior; and Winkie Wooton, senior. If the spectators are as enthusiastic as the girls who have been out practicing Scott can expect an exciting season. AT THE ANNUAL HONORS Day Convocation Wednesday the class of 1969 retained the Class Scholarship Trophy for a third year. The scholarship trophy was established by the 1956-57 Mortar Board chapter. It is awarded each year to the class which for the past session has 13 Named to Who's Who ELECTED TO WHO'S WHO in American Colleges and Universities were seniors (back row, L to r.)

A PHILOSOPHY SEMINAR for undergraduates began this week on the subject "Religious Language." The first lecture was held Wednesday in Rebecca Reception Room on the topic, "Introduction to the Problem." William Blackstone, professor of philosophy and head of the philosophy department of the University of Georgia, was the first speaker The second lecture on October 16 on the writings of John Hick will be given by Dean of the Faculty C. Benton Kline. Richard Parry, assistant professor of philosophy, will speak October 23 on the book, "Language, Logic, and God," by Frederick Ferre. Professor Blackstone will return October 30 to lead the concluding session on "Outcomes and Predictions." The seminar is open to any interested students or the general public. The organizers would like to stress however, that the discussions themselves will be open only for the participation of undergraduates. Nevertheless, graduate students arc especially invited to come.

Same time, same channel, but not the same Smothers Brothers, and not quite their same Comedy Hour. Tom and Dick now sport mustaches and sideburns and their show seems a bit more free of CBS censors' blue penciling. "Often times we have trouble giving out thoughts because sometimes it makes people think/' Tommy quipped. He looks less innocent with his mustache, and is no less serious about network meddling with his material The firm stands he and his brother have taken, along with the growing candor in all the mass media, have been responsible for CBS's new liberality. A classic example is Pete Seeger's return to television after being blacklisted as a Communist sympathizer. First time around the CBS people cut his "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy" because of its obvious slam at "Old Fool" LBJ and his war. They let him sing it on his next Smothers Brothers appearance. Network officials used to get weak knees whenever the boys touched on touchy subjects. The bosses banned some, required changes in wording on others so that fewer people would be offended, whatever that means. While there was at least one phrase edited out, the season 's opener Sunday was laced with innuendos and direct references to such subjects once verboten on prime time TV as interracial marriage, homosexuality, 'Smut Brothers 7 open less-censored season race, lingerie, and seduction. Pat Paulsen was there, getting in some low punches at his fellow candidates for the Presidency. He said he now has "so many supporters that Major (sic) Daley couldn't beat them all off with a stick. " Jokes about touchy subjects pervaded the hour, and were all tied together in a skit spoofing NBC's "Bonanza" - the Brother's competition in the Sunday, 9 p.m. EDT time slot. Mama Cass Elliott played "Hass" of the "Cartwrong" family, inspiring the line, "You're real, smart, Hass." And giant pro footballer Rosy Greer appeared as the long-lost Mrs. Cartwrong. Her son Little Jerk (Harry Belafonte), seeing her for the first time, said, "You're a big mother." Suggestive spice like that is rare, even on the Tonight Show. "The Smut Brothers, " played by guess-who, showed up in bad-guy black with bandannas saying "censored" across the mouths. They had kidnapped the Nielsen family. The Cartwrongs were upset about losing their neighbors the "Nielsens" - audience ratings, that is. With the black Greer "married" to white Ben (Paulsen), the Cartwrong brothers lamented, "Now well never get the Nielsens back. " That line was an excellent slam at the A merican viewing public.

They questioned the self-named "enthusiastic Democrat" on subjects ranging from his proposals to end the Vietnam war to ways to revitalize present welfare programs. Mackey, in speaking of his personal campaign in the area, emphasized the importance of young people working with him. He turned to one student and said people would respond much better to a "sweet young thing" like her than to old men like him. He went on to say that the enmity in the dirtrict was not against him personally. The real enemy is apathy, he said. About 1,000 of the 1800 "Indians in the woods" working for him are under 25-years-old, Mackay estimated. He also pointed out that his campaign manager is himself 25-years-old. He said there are a number of "angry young men" in his organization, but that they couldn't have conceived of working anywhere but within the system for what they believed. Pointing out that the college atmosphere in California is radically different from that in Georgia, Mackay said he didn't think there was anyone opting out around here unless they were down on 14th Street. He said that such people soon move out of the South. When asked what there would be for students to do after the compaign was over, Mackay listed three ways he has to keep students involved and informed. As a congressman he wants to invite national leaders to speak on college campuses in his district. He said such figures are always happy to come. He also proposes organizing a number of interest groups for students to learn in and work through. He gave as an example a group for students interested in only fiscal policy while another might be formed for peple concerned with traffic problems. The third proposal Mackay suggested was one he instituted himself while a congressman several years ago. This is a summer intership program in the national capital for college students. Speaking at Theatre Atlanta after a benefit performance Sunday of "Red, White and Maddox" sponsored by the Metropolitan Atlanta Summit Leadership Congress, State Representative Julian Bond said he would vote for Hubert Humphrey in the up-coming presidential election. The idea of Richard Nixon as president frightens him, he said, particularly because of the influence Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-SC) will be able to exert on him. Following his speech, Bond was interviewed by the PROFILE. Answering a question on student activism, Bond said student movements have a "very unhealthy" aspect. They started out emphasizing potentially important issues, but have neglected them, he explained. For example, he said, at Columbia University students have turned their concern inward on the university itself in a movement which began as interested in the poor area around the university. Bond went on to stress the fact that colleges do need changing, but not as much as the outside community. In comparing student activists in the north and south, Bond noted much less activity in the South. He also pointed out that student activists are found on black campuses in the south far more than on white ones. He cited as examples Morehouse College and Tuskegee Institute. In giving a reason for the disparity in activity between north and south, Bond said, "Northern students are not more intelligent, but more exposed. Southern students are more cloistered." When asked what had happened to student liberals after the defeat of the candidates they had worked for at the national convention, 3ond responded that these students have not been radicalized as some said they would. They are working on a local level for candidates can support he said. He gave as an example O'Dwyer's campaign in New York. He said there are "few people to work for in the South" except for candidates like Charles Weltner and James Mackey. He added that the choice of these kind of people will be greater in 1972 and that "people who believe politics are relevent will find causes to work for." Commenting on the "frightening" possibility of Nixon's election, Bond said Thurmondwould "be one of the men most responsible for Nixon being president, and Nixon will reward him, rightfully so." He said although Thurmond has said he was not interested in an appointed political office, he will be rewarded. When asked about the recent Georgia Board of Regents statement concerning punishment for excessively disruptive student demonstrations, Bond said he had not studied the statement. He observed however, "Any peaceful, orderly demonstration would be disruptive by their definition." Then he added, "Georgia students are not noted for political activism." STATE REPRESENTATIVE Julian Bond (center) mixed with the crowd during intermission Sunday of the special performance of "Red, White and Maddcx" at Theatre Atlanta. AFTER MAKING 26 SPEECHES during the week, Julian Bond took time for an interview with PROFILE editor, Sandra Earley and several other ASC students who were present. AN AFRO FASHION show was held in the lobby of Theatre Atlanta during intermission of a special production of "Red, White and Maddox" sponsored by the Metropolitan Atlanta Summit Leadership Congress. Two of the models wear wool fashions trimmed with elaborate embroidery. COLUMBIA Cox report tells why NEW YORK (CPS) - The Cox Commission, authoritarianism and indifference of administrators While Cox said students had in some cases appointed by the Columbia University faculty to like President Grayson Kirk and those who worked provoked the police, and that violence was probably NEW YORK (CPS) - The Cox Commission appointed by the Columbia University faculty to study last spring's disorders there, issued its report predictably allowing that all parties to the dispute were to blame for the violence that erupted on two occasions. In a 222-page report, compiled from interviews, testimony and evidence gathered during the summer months, the five-member commission laid responsibility for the campus disorders largely at the door of an administration which it said "too often conveyed an attitude of authoritarianism and mistrust." The report calls the quality of student life at Columbia "inferior in living conditions and personal associations," and says the spring rebellion gained deep and wide-spread support from students because of their "deep-seated and relatively unfocused dissatisfaction with the university." Both students and faculty members, according to Harvard University law professor Archibald Cox, who wrote most of the report, have tried and failed to find a meaningful voice in the university because of the authoritarianism and indifference of administrators like President Grayson Kirk and those who worked under him. The university also showed "indifference about its involvement in the two issues that arouse the deepest emotions of students: peace and racial justice," the report asserted. (The University's involvement with the Institute for Defense Analysis and its expansion into and control of its ghetto neighborhood were the specific issues that prompted the student strike and takeover of buildings.) Faculty members also had no voice to air grievances within the university; no faculty senate has ever existed at Columbia, and the first all-faculty meeting in the school's recent history was the one which appointed the Cox Commission. ALSO TAKING BITTER CRITICISM from the report were police actions in the two campus "busts" April 30 and May 22. It accused the police of using "excessive force and engaging in acts of individual and group brutality" that caused "violence on a harrowing scale" as they invaded the campus and cleared student-held buildings. Cox said students had in some cases the police, and that violence was probably unavoidable under the conditions on the campus, the report said "student behavior was in no way commensurate with the brutality, and did not excuse or even mitigate the blame resting on the police." "A layman," the commission said, "can see no justification for the brutality unless it be that the way to restore order in a riot is to terrorize civilians." Till-; REPORT DOES NOT CONDEMN the use of police force in quelling the students, however. It merely blames the university for waiting so long to use it (believing that if police had been called six days earlier in April most of the blood and violence would have been avoided) and for believing the assurances of police officials that there would be little violence. "There is grave danger," the Report said, "of exaggerating the willingness and ability of a police force to take effective action against many hundreds in a time of intense emotion without resorting to violence." (CONT. ON P. 3) PAGE 2 THE PROFILE OCTOBER IS, 196S Ph ooie! Trivia has struck again. It was to be PROFILE policy that mincing little matters like the dining hall and food would never show their grimy faces in the editorial column, but the absolute absurdity of a recent administrative directive necessitates such. Even Rep Council, as restrained as it is, groaned loudly when the chairman of its food committee announced Tuesday that from now on, anyone wishing to have a table reserved in the dining hall when they are having guests, a party, etc. must make their plans and have them approved in the Dean of Students office. We extol the virtues of "working through channels" but this is ridiculous. The campus red tape is bad enough already without adding to it. Here's just another picayne form students must observe like docile lambs. True, this is only one small thing, but it's a brand new example of a miriad of such small items that gum up the Agnes Scott works and make life much more difficult than it needs to be. To cite other examples, there's the absurd 10:30 p.m. local telephone rule which few have observed for years and should have been blotted from the handbook centuries ago. But even this will not go without opposition. Rumor had it in Rep Council that the powers that-be already look askance at the resolution on the phone rule passed Tuesday by the student group. Some nefarious group removed the campus date book from its proper place last week to call attention to its absurdity. The 10:30 phone rule is ignored. In what way should we deal with our new reserved table rule and other such nondescript directives? -Earley Questions asked The re-statement of the faculty hiring policy by the Board of Trustees is different because of an addition to the purpose as stated in the charter. Agnes Scott was established for the purpose of "perpetuating and conducting a college for the higher education of women under the auspices distinctly favorable to the maintenance of the faith and practice of the Christian religion." The addition to the statement extends to faculty the provision made for students in the original statement, namely, that membership in a non-Christian religion or no religious membership at all, would be reason for denial of admission. The additional statement reads as follows: "In selecting faculty and staff, the Board of Trustees, upon the recommendation of the President, shall elect those who can best carry out the objectives as set forth in the charter, giving consideration to any competant person who is in accord with these purposes." The move on the surface is not an earth-shattering one. Some see it as no change or as a change in the written word resulting in nothing different for the life of the campus. The move has great potential. It CAN be a move away from a narrow view which bordered on legalism to one based on a situational approach. However, several questions must be raised: 1) Could a practicing Jew (since this is the specific which immediately comes to mind) in good conscience carry out the Christian purpose of the college? Certainly this can only be answered by the individual. 2) Will we ever have the broader spectrum of people on campus now permitted in the re-statement of the board? The ideal we have had presented to us is fine, but on a practical level, will we ever have the exposure on campus to not only people of faiths other than the Christian religion, but also other races? 3) And the biggest question of all: what constitutes "auspices distinctly favorable to the maintenance of the faith and practice of the Christian religion?" Friction, tension and internal conflict are often seen as signs of life and vitality. An environment totally devoid of adversity, one which is idyll ically favorable for the growth of anything, usually results in a weak end-product. It is to be hoped that this is realized by those whose job it is to mold the campus atmosphere.

Everything that we do pertains either directly or indirectly to that search-every thing from our $500 contribution to the Paul Cranes to service projects or a World Wide Communion service. We believe that we have the support of the college community in this search. Our question is, "Will it support us financially, too?"

Some fear him and label him an "enfant terrible," but the man I saw was quiet, restrained, even tired in appearance and manner. When I introduced myself to Julian Bond in the lobbyof Theatre Atlanta during intermission, I was scared to death, lie did not agree cooly and remotely to the interview I asked for, as he might have. Rather, he said he would talk with us and even sounded as if he would enjoy it. After the play, he spoke to the audience for a few minutes from a prepared speech. Under the stage lights he looked younger than in the crowded lobby earlier. He gazed out into the lights which must have blinded him and spoke to the group with his head slightly tilted to one side. He was not mobbed after the panel discussion like so many public figures would have been. Instead, he left the stage as the audience was dispersing and went over to sit down and talk with a woman sealed in the front row. They spoke softly for a few moments. Then her escort come up with her wheel chair. While Mr. Bond helped her into it, she asked him about his poetry. As she left, he noticed we were waiting to talk to him. Then his political manager came up. This new man looked like a hard, cigar-clenched-in-teeth professional politician. He began to discuss Mr. Bond's speaking schedule for this week with him. The manager was adamant. The tired man who wearily rubbed his hand across the side of his head could have only one day in town before setting out again. Then our turn came. Sitting on the pouf in the lobby, he leased us gently about Agnes Scott and asked if we minded if he smoked. He spoke quietly but with force and humor. The atmosphere was more like a conversation than an interview. As we talked, he twiddled a burnt match he had made into a pinwheel in his fingers. The interview did not end abruptly with someone rushing up and saying, "You must excuse Mr. Bond now; he has to go to..." We finished talking and he got up, and with a casual "goodby" left with his manager who had waited in the background.

Is this organization taking hold in Atlanta and on our college campuses? SDS is moving into the high schools. Charlie Buehman, a freshman at Ridgeview High School in Sandy Springs, ran an ad in the October 17 issue of the "Great Speckled Bird." He asked lor people interested in forming an area SDS chapter to call him. He now has approximately len members at his high school ranging from eighth grade to tenth grade. According to young Buehman, the group is against the war in Vietnam and having to wear socks to school (a standing rule at area high schools). Charlie was recently suspended for failure to comply with 1 his rule. They also have plans to start an underground newspaper to he called "The Underground Railroad." Hopefully they can use this to let the administration know about their objection to wearing socks. A movement such as this, given the name SDS and not affiliated in any way with the national organization, could be damaging to the area and to SDS in general. The danger lies in getting the ideas that are behind SDS and the glamour of a nationally known organization mixed up with the trivialities of high school lite. David Govus, a member of the Committee on Social Issues (COS1) at Georgia State College and the older brother of one of Charlie's friends, advised these young students to start an organization of their own. However, David said there have been student groups formed at Grady and Chamblee high schools which are more politically oriented and run closer to the ideas of SDS, than the one at Sandy Springs. The Committee on Social Issues at Georgia State, which is in the process of affiliating with SDS, is becoming well known on the State campus. According to the August 15 issue of the Georgia State "Signal," COSI "is a group of Georgia State students who have united in their opposition to the Vietnam War, the draft and racism.'' They helped initiate the movement against compulsory ROTC at State. Their most recent efforts are in helping the maids and janitors employed at the college form a union which will work towards raising their wages. There is a new SDS chapter forming at Emory University. Their first meeting was interrupted by the Emory security guards because their meeting place had not been registered. An attending history professor saved the meeting and the members. Steve Abbott, student government president at Emory, is sympathetic to the ideas of SDS. Recently he wrote a column in the Emory "Wheel' 1 giving his interpretation supporting SDS. In a telephone interview Steve said that his opinion had not changed and that he thought SDS "had been distorted by the press." Cox report... (CONT. FROM P.l) As for the students, the commission condemned the "disruptive tactics" of the militant leftists, although it underscored their reasons for discontent with Columbia's administration. THE REPORT RIDICULED the accusation that the student revolt was the result of a world-or nationwide conspiracy of revolutionary students. Although the core of demonstrators who began the protest may have had major revolution in mind and been part of a bigger plan through SDS or some other student organization, the commission said, its interviews and testimony indicated that "the grievances of the rebels were felt equally by a large number, probably a majority, of students." "By its final days," the report contends, "the revolt enjoyed both wide and deep support among the students and junior faculty and in lesser degree among the senior professors... .The trauma of the violence that followed police intervention intensified emotions, but broad support for the demonstrators rested upon broad discontent and widespread sympathy for their position." The report's conclusion was a hopeful one-that if students were given a significant voice in university affairs, the need for protests like last spring's would disappear and the university might become a place to live and learn in again. The commission thinks students who had a part in the decision-making of the university would "acquire a more sophisticated understanding of the university's difficulties and complexities," and become more sympathetic with "the necessary functions" of the administration and governing body. S.D.S. Leftist groups ready plans for election day protests NEW YORK (CPS) - With the presidential elections less than one month away, leftist student and peace organizations across a broad spectrum have begun planning a "fall election offensive" opening a new phase in the national protest of the electoral system which began in Chicago last month and which will continue through the inauguration in January. The National Mobilization to End the War in Vietnam (known as 4 Mobe' for short), a loosely formed organization which in the past has coordinated many of the mass anti-war demonstrations and which earlier this year called for the protest in Chicago, is the one group so far to become specific about its plans. Mobe leaders say they are calling on students to "find new ways of voting this year-in the streets rather than in polling places" since voting for one of the three major candidates gives no chance to vote for ending the Vietnam war now. At an initial planning session during the week of October 2 in New York, Paul Potter, a former SDS president who is now on the Mobe steering committee, said his organization is aiming at a series of national, "decentralized" protest activities "leading up to, but not including, disruption of polling places." THE THRUST OE the activities, he said, will be to link the continuing war in Vietnam with the concept that our present political system, rather than dealing with the situation, tends to perpetuate it. The program's main features are to include: -On the weekend prior to the elections, possible presentation of anti-war generals at public hearings at which the issues surrounding the war would be presented, combined with Delegations of anti-war demonstrators visiting the nation's "35 key military bases," located mostly in the East and South, staging marches and "love-ins," concluding with -The declaration of November 2 as Vietnam Sunday and urging clergymen opposed to the war to speak out against it to their congregations; -The organization of mass rallies on the eve of Election Day supporting a boycott of the elections as irrelevant and illegitimate, combined with activities the following day including --Mass demonstrations at polling places of the major candidates plus various other activities, including leafleting and guerilla theatre performances, at other polling places all across the country "Till: IMPORTANT POINT about Mobe's planning," Potter said, "is that it provides a chance to re-introduce the war in Vietnam as an issue nationally." The gathering, attended by about 20, marked the first such meeting in the city of radical campus and peace groups interested in protesting the elections. Jeff Jones, a member of SDS, told the group of the possibility of calling for a student strike prior to election day in which students stop attending classes in order to participate in activities opposed to the elections. There was also some unspecific talk about the possibility that high school students from several public schools will walk out on election day in protest. That day is normally a city-wide school holiday, but this year the day off has been cancelled because of the teachers' strike.

Because this is the formal end of freshman orientation, and as such, the freshmen have been totally indoctrinated into the system and many will never recover." WILL SEE-NO-EVIL and Hear-No-Evil be joined by the third monkeyteer in the Black Cat production tonight? Will Nat Fitzsimmons finish making her peanut butter sandwich? Find it all out tonight at 7 p.m. Tara Swartsel, '69: "Black Cat is one of the few creative community efforts of the college." Comparison is basis for rule reform Rules Committee is hard at work this year. Headed by Senior Patsy May, other members are Ann Allen, Sally Skardon and Jane Quillman. Their job comes down to an actual re-evaluation of Agnes Scott's present judicial system. They are in the process of writing other women's liberal arts colleges to see what type of system colleges comparable to Scott have, and how effective their policies are. "It is hoped the replies from Oregon dean calls rules 'liberal' CORVALLIS, Ore.-(LP.)-Oregon State University is considered by Janet Crist, assistant dean of women, to be as liberal as most other schools throughout the country concerning women's closing hours. "Of course, our policy must be viewed in proper perspective," she added. Midwest universities have general policies that coincide with those now in effect at OSU. Oregon State can be considered conservative when policies are compared to universities in the Pacific Athletic Conference. Washington schools are very liberal. There are no closing hours at the sophomore level at Washington State University and no closing for anyone at the University of Washington. Dean Crist cited examples of liberalism in the California schools also. UCLA has lowered the age for no closing to the sophomore level as has the University of Southern California. EVEN PRIVATE COLLEGES in Oregon have weekend closing set at 2 a.m., Lewis and Clark College and Linfield College for example. The University of Oregon has adopted no closing regulations beginning this fall. OSU has extended the privilege of no closing to juniors. According to Dean Crist, there has been very little complaint from staff or parents and the experiment is considered very effective. Besides extending no closing to sophomores there are other regulations that can be changed to blend in with liberalism. "The University of Oregon has considered having a no closing dorm in which women students of any level can live with parental permission," Dean Crist revealed. Under this system there would be no closing residence halls and some which enforce closing hours for those parents objecting. PEGBOARD these colleges will help support our plans for revision," Patsy said. The general approach is, "if it works at Smith, why shouldn't it work here?" The colleges are being asked specifically what ype of honor system, drinking policy, apartment policy, chaperonage, time limits, number of social engagements, etc. they have. Thirty two colleges are being written. A few are: Bennington, Mary Baldwin, Chatham, Skidmore, Smith, and Vassar. These colleges represent a variety of areas. Patsy feels that answers to these questionnaires will be coming in throughout the year. The major part of the work will be the job of next year's Rules Committee. Major purposes for this year are now being drawn up into resolutions for presentation to Rep. Council. One of the resolutions will be the elimination of the 10:30 telephone restriction concerning dorm-to-dorm calls. At present if you wish to call another dorm past 10:30 you must get permission from a judicial or house council member. Rules Committee is also trying to get a better definition of the Atlanta and Decatur areas, in increased number of social engagements for sophomores and a change in the chaperonage policy. Patsy said, "Miss Scandrett was very receptive to all of our ideas." Patsy would like to invite anyone who has a complaint to come to the meetings. Meetings will be posted on the student government bulletin board. Katherine Setze, 71: 'The production, because I don't like hockey." THE COMMITTEE ON the Problem (COP), has been studying and trying to discover the seeds of THE PROBLEM on the Scott campus. According to Senior Penny Burr, committee chairman, progress is being made. The committee has been looking into the idea of the Agnes Scott community, what it is and what standards are necessary for our type community. Also, a new suggested drinking policy has gone into sub-committee. Tina Brownley, a member of COP and president of student government, commented, "I hope that the college will regulate drinking as regards the campus only." DR. LOREN C. EISELEY, Benjamin Franklin Professor of Anthropology and the History of Science at the University of Pennsylvania, will lecture here October 23 as part of a series of programs presented by the Agnes Scott Lecture Committee. The topic for Dr. Eiseley's presentation will be "Man: Sorcerer In the Wood of Time." A distinguished author and naturalist. Dr. Eiseley received his B. A. degree from the University of Nebraska and his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. He has served as professor at Harvard, Columbia and the University of California. Dr. Eiseley is a member of the Natural Parks Advisory Board and serves on the Advisory Board of the National Book Awards Committee. BLACKFRIARS IS PRESENTING "The Children's Hour" by Lillian Hellman on Nov. 21, 22, 23 at 8:15 in Dana. The play concerns two young women, Karen Wright and Martha Dobie, who have set up a private boarding school. Their prospects for this school are soon shattered. One of the pupils, Mary, a spoiled and mischevious child, runs away to her grandmother, Mrs. TUford, a woman of high social position. To prevent being sent back to the boarding school, Mary accuses her teachers of an abnormal sexual relationship. The rumor soon gains momentum. Mrs. Hellman points out the play's broader implications by stating, "this is really not a play about lesbians, but about a lie. The bigger the he the better, as always." The play was chosen, Roberta Winter, professor of speech and drama and director of the play, said, because of the female parts available and because the co-curriculum committee asked Blackfriars to do a play by a southern author. Lillian Hellman is one of the outstanding American playwrights. The cast is: Mrs. Mortar, Lennard Smith; Rosalie, Vicki Rippberger; Mary, Judy Langford; Karen, Patricia Johnston: Martha, Mollie Douglas; Agatha (to be announced); Mrs. Tilford, Carol Ann McKenzie. The Little Girls are: Peggy Barnes, D. A. Claiborne, Charlotte Coats, Jane Duttenhaver, Hope Gazes and Vicki Hutcheson. The male characters are: Dr. Joseph Cardin, Tom Carson, and a Grocery Boy, Bob Keeley. AT TUESDAY'S MEETING of Representative Council, the resolution regarding the abolishment of the 10:30 local phone rule was passed unanimously. Under the present system the local phone was not supposed to be used for any calls, either on or off campus, after 10:30. The reason for this rule was that the ringing of the phones disturbed people's sleep. Under this system it was also neccessary to ask the hall judicial for permission to use phone for calls after 10:30. This resolution deletes any restrictions on using the local phone after 10:30 for inside calls. Karen Hazelwood submitted her resignation as a sophomore representative to Rep Council Tuesday. She stated in a letter that her act on arose from personal reasons not disagreement with any board action. An election for a new sophomore representative will be held by Mortar Board in an upcoming sophomore class meeting.

THE ROFMLE VOLUME LV NUMBER 6 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 OCTOBER 25, 1968 After four years of feminism, graduates face Faculty says... by CAROL BANISTER What graduate school can I go to? How can I use my education to function as a woman in today's society? The underlying question is that of discrimination against women because of their sex. It was a comparatively short time ago that women had no rights at all. As a minority group, women have always known discrimination of some type. According to John A. Tumblin Jr., professor of sociology and anthropology, it is important not to confuse "discrimination against and discrimination between." "Discrimination between is a necessary human process of drawing boundaries. It is entirely functional. Sexual discrimination is important to develop one's personality and ability to carry out a role in society," Tumblin explained. It is important to know whether you are male or female to function successfully. Tumblin feels the major confusion for women is how much a woman is willing to trade off for equality. A woman desires equality in the sense of equal opportunity for high paying positions in the academic and business world, equal rights to attend a graduate school and equal rights under the law. However, no woman wants to be treated like a man. Doors are to be opened, chairs pulled back, checks paid, coats put on and flowers sent, he suggested. Margaret W. Pepperdene, professor of English, feels much of the discrimination women encounter today "is realistic and not anti-feministic." Graduate schools will take a girl for one year, but the crucial question is, 'are you going to get married?' Young married women many times are not good investments." Mrs. Pepperdene went on to say Agnes Scott has a strange type of discrimination. Any professor whom students call "Dr." is always male, never female. This "sex-connected gene" is not unusual for a girl's school, but is academically inappropriate for a women's college such as Agnes Scott, Mrs. Pepperdene said. lone Murphy, director of vocational services, feels the major barrier women encounter in the business world is a discrimination in levels of work. "We recruit women for positions that take on professional responsibility and hide behind an occupational label when actually their function and responsibility isn't much different from that of a young man who is getting a larger salary," she said. There arc organizations in urban areas which are working daily on doing away with many of these same barriers. The National Organization of Women (NOW) is only one of many proposing a Bill of Rights for women and working against discrimination. Discrimination /! against women in business "...We've developed one fixation. Although we've studied Shakespeare, Plato and Sartre, Ilistorv, math and physics in part. With a degree in the li-he-ral arts. We wonder can we be em ployed?" Graduates say... by ELIZABETH CRUM Copy Editor Betty Derrick, Class of 1968, says men and women holding equivalent positions where she is now employed get paid different salaries. Women earn less money. Being a Scott graduate seems to help rather than hinder the woman who is job hunting. Ann Roberts, l 67, said in the teaching jobs she applied for, her Agnes Scott diploma was a definite asset. Of course, teacher's salaries as well as other state and government employees salaries are fixed. Peggy Bell, '65, a case worker with a local county welfare department said that she has experienced no hiring or wage discrimination. She has several friends who have had difficulty finding jobs. She said many companies are "hesitant to hjre a girl who is a college graduate," for secretarial positions for example, because they are afraid the girls will become bored and leave. According to Betty Derrick, even though there is wage discrimination between male and female, being an Agnes Scott graduate helps in finding a job, especially in the Atlanta area. Most large businesses are looking for "initiative" and "creativity" in their young executives she said. As for the ASC graduate's lack of specialization, Betty said most business would rather train a person from scratch than have to re-train him. Finally, Susan Aikman, l 68, said, "If you are a college grad, you don't want this job." Susan is a journalist for a trade magazine in Atlanta. She feels women definitely get discriminatory salaries. Suscm attributes part of it to the business risk of rapid employment turnover. Women quit to marry, have children or their husbands become financially ab'e to support them without help.

They do not necessarily represent the opinion of the administration or the student body. / Look again All right. Let's stop and take a look at ourselves. We've been going to classes for over five weeks now and have passed through or are in the throes of our first battery of tests and papers. Whst have we done in these five weeks other than study? The PROFILE started out the year with the wonderful plea to the student body not to become impossibly ingrown and introverted. Rather, we suggested that for everyone's health, each individual and the college as a whole, we should make a concious effort to turn outward, to get off the campus, to find other interests that oursluves, to not be so darn selfish. How many of us are working in CA projects or will even consider the new project A A is starting? (Hr,ve you even read about it in "Pegboard?") How many of us support the striking California grape pickers, but are too lazy to hold a sign in front of a grocery store? Thirty-one tickets were sold on campus for the special production of "Red, White and Maddox" when Julian Bond spoke, but how many is this out of a college of 750? How many of us actually bought theatre and concert tickets when they were sold in the mailroom? How many of us even know about the Sunday night movies at the Hi^h Museum and Cinema Wednesday at Emo-y? There are so many opportunities, whether you want to work and se ve somewhere or whether you }u$t want entertainment. We're in Atlanta and tlwe are things to be done, so let's do them. Upperclassmen, invite younger students to go with you somewhere when they need transportation. Freshman, Sophomores, whatever, ask for a ride if you want to go. In the case of service projects and the like, trarnportatio is often provided. If you feel like you rrv;s^ devote your entire life to the academic pursuits, at liast catch a No. 17 bus downtown and stui'y in the Atlanta Public Library. It will give you a wf-iole new lease on I fe. You could even come work fo: the PROFILE. To the Editor: It is unfortunate that your editorial on page two of the October 18 issue was not printed closer to Cornelia DeLee's statement about Black Cat on page four, for perhaps more people would have understood the justification for her statement. The majority of the freshmen will find themselves defensive about the system which has been so kind to them during their orientation period. It is the freshman who will dutifully sign in and out, record her date's name in the campus date book and call the Dean of Students' Office before 5 p.m. to reserve a table for her roommate's birthday party. It is those who are convinced the system is for their benefit and protection upperclassmen as well as freshmen - and those who are too weary to buck the system, who quietly ignore the rules - these are the ones who permit the administrative powers to control "the trivia" in their lives, and thus permit them to control their lives as well. Because many students do not Overheard Editor assigning stories at PROFILE meeting: "Go see Dean Kline about the man who's going to lecture on Communism." Reporter: "Why? Does he have to give me permission to go to hear him?" *** Concerning the sign in the Black Cat production, "Dr. Alston sleeps in his suit," one Junior was heard to comment: "We love Dr. Alston with his suit or without it." *** Ann Hoefer at a CA meeting: "Oh yeah, you mean like in Pope, Bradham and Swift." *** A Senior: "I've got 59 minutes to get to my virgin flies!" know how comprehensive this control is, I feel obligated to inform them of two small dramas in the real life history of Agnes Scott about which they would otherwise never know. The Appalachian Folk Festival, enjoyed by many students last year, and this year featuring Heady West, Pete Seeger and the Blue Ridge Mountain Dancers, who have been asked to represent the U.S. at the Olympics, was to be sponsored on campus by Arts Council. The proposed concert, more relevant to a larger number of students than the Peruvian art, was cancelled by a simple phone call on the grounds that it interfered with Investiture. (It was to be held Friday night when no activities had been planned. The suggestion had been made that a group of students help clean the auditorium after the program.) In another instance, under the guise of protecting the students from unsightly newsstands and unwanted salesmen, "The Great Speckled Bird," noted by the "Atlanta" magazine as the most outstanding underground newspaper, has been relegated to a Saturday nine-to-five salesday outside the dining hall. Have you ever wondered why the Atlanta "Journal" and "Constitution" are not sold on campus? Why is there so little communication between administration a^d students when the faculty-studjent relationships appear to be so good? Before there is honesty, there must be trust. The administration obviously does not trust the student to act as a responsible adult, or else the students would not be confined by so many trivial rules. The student does not trust the administration because she has found that the ideal Agnes Scott College in which she firmly believed is a dream college, not only non-existent, but impossible to build, because the harder she tries, the more entangled she is in "campus red tape." To make a woman whole adulthood. Do we really have the power OR the freedom? Mary Lou Romaine, 4 70 by sandra earley It's about time somebody did an expose on the Pub. As I sit here with my version of the campus cold, I sincerely wish the Pub lived up to the usual connotation of its name. It takes a good stiff swig of something medicinal to fully appreciate the place. If you ever come to visit us down here, do be careful as you come up the walk. The friendly oak tree which hasn't been trimmed since Miss Scandrett lived here, will snatch playfully at your hair and, it it likes you especially well, at your eyes. The porch is made of broken orange tiles, but I really don't mind their ancient-ruin-like state. To my English major mind, the tiles and the heavy black door with its green-brass doorknob which opens with a malevolent creak are the perfect metaphor for the decaying southern aristocracy. Besides that, my friends the chipmunks live under those orange tiles. They are great pals, especially when I feed them. The squirrels however, have foul tongues. They swear like sailors from the tree tops. One has even begun to recognize me when I go by on my way to class. He sits on the roof and curses and throws acorns. Upon entering the Pub. you will immediately recognize the basic domesticity of the place. I must admit however, that it is domestic in the same way an Agnes Scott graduate must be without benefit of home economics The Pub doesn't really smell musty. Rather, it smells like a freshly scorched oxford cloth blouse. But give it a chance; the rest of the place is really very appetizing. The six rooms and bath are not unlike the contents of a bachelor girl's refrigerator. The living room and dining room are ajslark brown color which looks wonderful on a chocolate cake, but LCjce five more pounds on the rather hippy rooms. The breakfast room, appropriately, and bath are the color of the Chiquita brand bananas everyone likes on her morning cereal. You can even see the dark brown bruise marks where the paint is peeling. The hallway goes with the breakfast motif. The wallpaper here looks like the surface of ajar of moulded apple jelly. The apple jelly spills over into lunch and the split pea soup PROFILE office. The other two offices also rather like varieties of Campbell soup. Both are the sort of grayish blue found in canned oyster stew. If you look closely you can even see the oysters. Now you may get the impression I'm not too happy with the Pub. On the contrary, I like it very much - it's such a friendly place. Why, Fm never lonely down here. In addition to my friends the chipmunks who live outside, there are my other friends who live in the walls. I can hear them squeaking and rustling about as I work at all hours of the night. They are really fine specimens- some of the largest, longest-tailed rats on campus. You know, one of the PROFILE'S advertisers came into the Pub the other day. He had the nerve to look around and comment that when he was the editor of his college newspaper, it was the step-child of his campus, too. Now I resent that. We're certainly as well taken care of as anybody on campus. Why, we even have heat this year. OCTOBER 25, 1968 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 Bill of Rights lists student freedoms A document which could have great bearing on the relationship between various segments of the college community, already strained by last year's student protests, is now becoming known. Called the "Student Bill of Rights", it was drafted by a joint committee composed of representatives of the largest student and administrative associations. The statement was completed in the summer of 1967 and has been endorsed by ten major organizations, including the National Student Association and the American Association of University Professors. The bill of rights contains seven sections plus a preamble and deals primarily with the rights and obligations of students in their relationship to their college. The major areas touched on are classroom freedoms, student records, student affairs, off-campus freedom, freedom of admission and disciplinary procedures. Most of the points are so basic one wonders why they were even enumerated. Others are interesting and provocative. Section three dealing with student records says, "To minimize the risk of improper disclosure, academic and disciplinary records should be separate.. ..No record should be kept which reflects the political activities or beliefs of the students. Provisions should also be made for periodic destruction of noncurrent disciplinary records." Section four, elaborating student affairs, is one of the most controversial sections of the bill. Subsection B, "Freedom of Inquiry and Hxpression", says, "Students and student organizations should be free to examine and to discuss all questions of interest to them and to express opinions publicly and privately. "They should always be free to support causes by orderly means which do not disrupt the regular and essential operation of the institution." This statement was written before the Columbia University riots last spring. "Students should be allowed to invite and hear any person of their own choosing... .The institutional control of campus facilities should not be used as a device of censorship." This brings to mind the refusal of Chancellor C. H. Weaver to allow Dick Gregory to speak at the University of Tennessee in late September of this year. The subsection dealing with student publications says, "In the delegation of editorial responsibility to students, the institution must provide sufficient editorial freedom and financial autonomy for the student publications to maintain their integrity of purpose as vehicles for free inquiry and free expression in an academic community." Speaking of conduct expected of students, the bill of rights says, "the institution has an obligation to clarify those standards of behavior which it considers essential to its educational mission and community life. "These general behavior expectations and the resultant specific regulations should represent a reasonable regulation of student conduct, but the student should be as tree as possible from imposed limitations that have no direct relevance to his education." This statement was adopted by the major associations, but not without some qualms and equivocations. NSA endorsed it unanimously in August, 1967, but later NSA President Hdward Schwartz evaluated it as a "minimal document." The Council of the American Association of University Professors passed a resolution October 28, 1967 which clarified their stand on the controversial section dealing with demonstrations by orderly means. The resolution said, "...the Council deems it important to state that its conviction that action by individuals or groups to prevent speakers invited to the campus from speaking, to disrupt the operations of the institutions in thecourse of demonstrations.. .is destructive of the pursuit of learning and of a free society. "All components of the academic community are under a strong obligation to protect its processes from these tactics." They were supported in this interpretation by three other major administrative associations. Why do nice girls picket food stores ? by KAY PARKERSON Associate Editor Some half-dozen Agnes Scott students put their super Saturday to use last week by picketing the Kroger Supermarket in Decatur. The picketing is sponsored by the Atlanta Committee to Support the Farm Workers^ a group composed of concerned Atlanta citizens who support the cause of the striking grape pickers in California. l ive Kroger stores in the Atlanta area are being picketed by the committee because in their words, it is the only supermarket chain in Atlanta which "consistently refuses to talk" AMONG THOSE PICKETING a Decatur supermarket Saturday in support of striking California grape pickers were Gayle Grubb (1. to r.), Tricia Daunt, Marian Gamble and Marguerite Kelly. about measures to support the grape boycott currently in force nationwide. Gayle Grubb, speaking for the committee, has said that the picketing will continue "until it is successful". The morning was cool and the air downright chilly where three Agnes Scott students were walking in the prescribed picketing circle in the shadow of Kroger 's store front. Passerbys in cars shouted unencouraging remarks as they passed and often confused the girls with civil rights pickets. The leaflets they passed out usually ended up in the gutter thrown there unread by the young housewives doing their Saturday morning marketing. Many people reacted to the girl's pleas not to buy grapes inside by doing so anyway and then waving the grapes in their faces as they left the market. Signs touting the "Kroger revolution" seemed out of place as a backdrop to the ever circling pickets. One old lady approached Marian Gamble and wanted to know what a nice young thing like her was doing in a place like this. Negroes for the most part were very sympathetic and listened attentively while the girls explained the grape boycott. One elderly Negro woman mourned, "I can't afford to buy grapes; it's all I can do to buy bread." Several wished the girls good luck before entering the store. A few WASPs drifted around the corner from the Wallace headquarters, complete with buttons and stickers. Once they discovered that the girls were not civil rights marchers, they too entered the store and bought big clumps of grapes. Every now and then a sympathetic passerby might identify himself as a union man and wish the girls luck. These few people seemed to be the only ones who had even heard about the efforts of the grape harvesters in California. Housewives kept walking by, ignoring the girls in their rush for the swinging doors of the supermarket; the pickets in front kept circling and picking up the discarded leaflets out of the gutter. Decatur went its Saturday way. FUN & KNOWLEDGE -1969- Summer In Europe Nassau - Europe Turkey 11 WEEKS-$1795 Study-Travel In Western Civilization Meetings- Oct. 28, 1968 7-8 P.M.

PAGE 4 THE PROFILE OCTOBER 25, 1968 Other Presbyterian schools oppose homogenity, rules by ELIZABETH MATHES In the twentieth century, the religiously affiliated institution has been forced to re-examine its relationship to the world and its obligation to its heritage and beliefs. This questioning is obvious on the Agnes Scott campus and at other colleges. An examination of the problems fermenting on similar "Presbyterian" institutions is both interesting and familiar. There is considerable unrest among Davidson college students over their admissions policy. "We have too many 'whole men' here - too many guys who made 1350 on their boards, ran the student council and starred on the football team - and it contributes significantly to the problem of wide-spread student apathy." The tfc Davidsonian" editorializes that "Davidson's neglect of the Negro and other underprivileged students is a crime of the worst sort. Nearly as bad as its neglect of the not-so-well-rounded students." A Code of Responsibility has been proposed which calls for a liberalization of the college's rules policy to include drinking on campus and open dormitories. There is also a great deal of interest in and re-examination of the college's church commitment, the threat of "inbreeding" in the faculty and administration, and the examination system. At Johnson C. Smith University, a black school, students began an active campaign to solve campus problems via the circulation and presentation of a list of grievances to the administration last spring. As a result of this petition, several changes have been instituted. Most notable are changes in curfews for women and relaxation of the dress policy. Courses in black heritage and culture are now offered to any student who chooses to elect them, and an effort is being made to secure black artists who can relate well with the student body. Two weeks ago, the student body demonstrated its concern for change when a boycott of classes was instituted to force the removal of the campus physician. Complaints had been lodged against the man and the infirmary last spring and improvements were made at that time. This protest was set off when a student who had been injured in a football game Saturday night, September 28, was not taken to a hospital until 11:30 a.m. Sunday. The player consequently lost the sight in his right eye, according to the campus newspaper. Student reaction was immediate and universal. Within 24 hours of receiving the news of the player's condition, a boycott of classes went into effect which lasted until the resignation of the school physician had been received. The doctor's resignation was received by 3 p.m. that same afternoon. Evelyn Angeletti, '69: "It is terrific. They add a lot of life and personality to the place that it didn't have last year with all upperclassmcn. The combination of freshmen and sophomores with juniors and seniors gives Winship a good atmosphere." Scottie Speaks Judy Langford, k 7 1 : "I think it is a good idea. It gives upperclassmcn a chance to meet freshmen, and freshmen an opportunity to be with people who have been here before." Polly Matthews, '69, president of Winship dorm: "Freshmen contribute a lot to Winship. They help keep the uppercl ass men's spirits revived-we think our freshmen are great.". How do you like having freshmen in Winship this year? No student exam scheduling now II you were planning on sneaking home early this year for Christmas because you scheduled all your exams the first two days, forget it. According to Assistant Dean of the f aculty, Julia T. C-ary, "1 don't think there's a possibility that we can do it this quarter." Recently returned from a trip to Randolph-Macon Woman's College and Sweet Briar College where she examined their student-scheduled exam systems, Miss Gary felt there simply wasn't time enough "To explain it, to evaluate it, to organize it and get it done by December 13." She stressed several times that the student assumes a tremendous responsibility with the system. "If the students aren't willing, it could be a miserable failure," she said. This is one reason why much care and effort is being taken before the system is attempted for the first time. The system as it works at Sweet Briar and Randolph-Macon is not too radically different from the present Agnes Scott system. Approximately four weeks before exams, the student makes out her own exam schedule. Once it is turned in, Miss Gary stressed, it is unchangeable An envelope is made for each exam each student takes. The faculty stuffs the envelope with the appropriate little quiz and returns to a central office. On the fateful day, the exams are made available and the student goes to certain classrooms which are designated as open for exams. She takes the test, pledges it and the time it took her to take it, and returns it to the office. Faculty response to the system has been favorable at the two schools. Miss Gary said. A few subjects require established times for testing such as art history, music, languages etc. Large classes have to have the exams finished a certain number of days before the exam period is over to give the teacher the opportunity to begin grading. The teachers do not have to come to the campus to administer the tests except in the above special cases. They also have found that all of their tests are usually returned early, giving them more time to correct them. Each exam would have to be pledged as always, but a new clause would have to be added. In addition to not giving or receiving aid, one must also pledge not to discuss the test with anyone else. The two schools have found this clause has immensely helped morale during exams. One has to talk of something else at the dinner table besides the ever-present exams. In the words of Miss Gary. "Why exams almost become eniovable." PEGBOARD ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION is sponsoring a service project with the DeKalb County Juvenile Home. Volunteers are needed to work with young girls, ages 13 through 16, in the areas of grooming and physical fitness. These girls are awaiting trial or removal to a reformatory. Volunteers are asked to work from 3-4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Volunteer work does not have to be on a regular basis. A meeting will be held for all those interested on Monday, at 1:30 p.m. in Rebekah recreation room. If you are interested but cannot attend the meeting, please contact Fran Fulton. CO-CURRICULAR COMMITTEE will conduct a mock election on Thursday, October 31. The polls will be open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. in the Hub. Members of the faculty, staff and students are encouraged to vote. A differentiation will be made between the votes to tall, the decision of the staff and faculty in comparison to that of the students. Penny Poats is in charge of the Humphrey campaign and Marion Hinson heads the Nixon campaign. The ballot will include Nixon, Humphrey and Wallace with space for a write-in vote. On the night of the nationwide election a party will be held in the Hub. Co-Curriculum Committee will have three T.V. sets, one on each network, and a bulletin board to post the results. Refreshments will be served and the Hub will remain open until all final votes are in. A DINNER, GIVEN by the Mayor's Committee for United Nations Day observances, was held at the Marriott Motor Hotel Tuesday, to celebrate the twenty-third anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. Dr. Wallace M. Alston, president of the college, and all Agnes Scott foreign students were requested to join the international students attending schools and colleges in metropolitan Atlanta to enjoy the hospitality of the Atlanta business community at this dinner. Agnes Scott students who attended the dinner were Koula Ashiotou, Bryndis lsaksdothir, Renuka Palta, Lulu Safari, and Inci Unalan. Also in attendance were Miss Sylvia Chapman and Mrs. Concepcion Leon of the dean's staff and Dr. Lee Copple. Guest speaker at the International Student Dinner was Ambassador Sol M. Linowitz, United States representative to the Organization of American States. Ambassador Linowitz is also trustee of the Institute of International Education. PROFESSOR JOSEPH R. STRAYER will give a lecture entitled, "Medieval Science, An Evaluation" Wednesday, October 30 at 8: 15 in MacLean. Professor Strayer is one of the most outstanding scholars on medieval history. He is the Dayton-Stockton Professor of Medieval History at Princeton and served as Chairman of the history department there from 1941-1961. He has also served as Director of the American Council for Learned Societies and has been President of the Medieval Academy of America since 1966. He is the author of numerous articles, books, and textbooks. (One of his books is being used in the medieval history class this year.) Professor Strayer is a lecturer for the University Center History Group in Georgia. Geraldine Meroney, associate professor of history, is responsible for bringing him to Agnes Scott. She commented, "I'm deeply pleased to get him down here." AT THE TUESDAY meeting of Representative Council the main topic of discussion was whether or not to re;ommend to Dr. Alston that penalties for cutting convocation should come u der the poin* system. Mary Gillespie, chairman of Co nv ocatio n C o m mill e e , explained the proposed procedure to Rep Council. A student is excused from convocation if she is in the infirmary, has a previous off-campus appoint me nt , or is out of town. Everyone receives two kl free" cuts with no questions asked. On the third cut the student receives a five point penalty. As proposed this method wili take the enforcement of convocation attendance out of '.he hands of Presiden! Alston and place it on student government. Students will be responsib'e for their own act ons. When the vote was taken afte^ much discussion, the majority of the Rep Council members abstained. They felt they needed more time to find out the opinion of the goirs they represtm'.. This recommendation will be discussed again at the next Rep Council meeting.

College Ave. Phone 373-9267 Complete Car Service lust Actors the Street THE ROFILE VOLUME LV NUMBER7 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 NOVEMBER 1 , 1^68 'King Arthur:' Bradham says not masque, opera or ballet Atlanta-- everything from to BARBARELLA by ELIZABETH MATH ES The opening production of the Atlanta Repertory Theater's inaugural season is John Dryden's "King Arthur." This production which opened Wednesday combines the resources of the theater company, the Atlanta Ballet and the Atlanta Opera. In a recent interview Jo Allen Bradham, assistant professor of Lnglish and specialist in eighteenth century English literature, suggested what students might expect of the play. The plot centers on the fight between Arthur and the Saxon Osmond over the beautiful Emmelme. Osmond is the villian, totally without honor in his pursuit of Lmmeline. Emmeline is the picture of innocence, blind and blond, while Arthur is the good king. Merlin also figures in the plot, as do the Saxon gods Osmond invokes, as well as a good number of playful shepherd and shepherdesses. The scene in which Emmeline regains her sight is "supposed to be particularly touching," Miss Bradham said, since it symbolizes the renewed vision of all. "King Arthur 1 ' is not a typical masque, Miss Bradham explained. The masque is sheer spectacle and its purpose is only entertainment. "King Arthur" is "too long to be a masque as we know it, and it also has a plot," she said. The basic element of the essential masque is unadulterated extravaganza. It is also not a full-Hedged opera because the music is incidental to the lines. Neither is it a heroic play, although there are many "terribly bombastic speeches on love, duty and country," Miss Bradham said. It contains elements of all three genres. There is a problem of a lack of unity in "King Arthur" which stems from Dryden's political reasons The Goddess Comes to Agnes (Sailing to Sanatorium) More Wally spoke and yawned - all Agnes nods: What Scott ie could resist the yawn of gods? Dorms and chapel instantly it reached; (Gaines chapel first, for leaden A preached) The lucky few in L.D.H. did glut; While Convocation gaped, but dared not cut: Lost was the college's sense, nor could be found, While the long solemn unison went round; Wide and more wide it spread the one-block realm; Even Scandrett nodded at the helm: The Vapour mild o'er th' endless committees crept; Rep's resolutions in Rebekah slept; And the hockey teams dozed out on the champain; While CO. P. discussed, but all in vain. Honestly lifted from Pope for writing it. Orginally there were many references to the Stuart kings, but because it was not performed until 16 1 M -after the Glorious Revolution-revision was necessary. The changes destroyed the unity, Miss Bradham said. "King Arthur" has been popular despite its technical difficulties and has been revived many times. It was especially popular during the mid-1 939's. The music by Purcell is a major at traction. When asked if she thought this production would be a good one, Miss Bradham replied she had never seen it on stage and really could not imagine how it would look. She added it was not the most interesting thing to read, but "it has good possibilities for spectacular production," and shoulcl make a good opener with a lot of visual excitement. An open letter... In its continuing efforts to improve the campus and make helpful suggestions, the PROFILE would like to address a sort of open letter to Arts Council and /or any group or individual who might he interested. The emphasis of this week's issue is a brief survey of a few of the cultural opportunities in the A tlanta and Decatur areas. It's wonderful when students are aware of these, want to attend them and even (shock and incredulity) have tickets for them. It seems however, there is often difficulty in finding transportation for them or people to go with so one will be properly chaperoned. Sometimes a student wants to go to a particular event and is not able to obtain a ticket when other students have tickets they arc not planning to use. Our suggestion to Arts Council is that it act as a sort of clearing house for such needs. Possible this could be accomplished with a permanent bulletin board like the one usually put up during opera week. Students driving cars to concerts and plays could post notes that they would be able to take some people with them. Students not using tickets could indicate on the board that they have tickets for sale. Girls needing people to go with them as chaperones could post a plea for such. Arts Council might even be able to obtain a list of students with season tickets to concerts and theatres to use in referring students who need transportation or tickets. Even the faculty might get in on the act and pass on tickets or cart students around. So here is our suggestion for what it's worth.

With honor emphasis week approaching, it would be worthwhile to consider a way of bringing about a truly new reliance on honor, a sort of "beginning again." If we could somehow get all those unconfessed deeds off our minds, ones left over from past years which it seems useless to turn ourselves in for now, everyone could start again, equally pure. All could be headed in the same direction-toward a more meaningful honor system. How can this be accomplished without a mass purge? We suggest that honor emphasis committee set up a procedure whereby the entire student body could confess its individual sins without fear of punishment. Two ideas here may frighten you. First Is the suggestion that every member of the student body is harboring some deep dark secret in her bosom. Sure, some violations may be more serious than others, but be it drinking violations or using the local phone after 10:30 p.m., we're all sinners under the skin. Point two is confession without punishment. Visions arise of the whole honor system going under in a mass crime wave of sin. The idea here is forgiveness, not punishment. We're emphasizing honor, and a little honor given to the student community should reap a hundredfold reward. This is a Christian school after all, or are those nothing more than just words? If you're still with us, this can be accomplished in many ways. Judicial could ask each student to write down all the instances where she has broken a rule and turn it in to Judicial. Whether or not it is signed is of no consequence. Such a procedure would help in two ways. The student would have her transgressions off her mind and out in the open, a more healthy psychological situation to be sure. Judicial would be able to determine just how much general breakage of the rules goes on. This would aid in the eventual evolution of a more mature and practical honor code. For if, 90 per cent of the students break a rule, then there is strong question as to its appropriateness. If personal lists seem repugnant, why not a list in the mailroom with spaces under various violations to be checked? Or why not a questionnaire in each mailbox for each girl to determine her sin quotient and return to a centrally located drop-box? Or why not a confessional convocation? Everyone could put her head down and as a blindfolded Lou Frank recites the lists of rules, girls would raise their hands at appropriate times. These raised hands could be counted by myopic judicials who have first removed their glasses or contact lenses. No peeking allowed, of course. This could be climaxed by a bonfire the last night of honor emphasis week, at which time all confessions could be burned. As the ashes float slowly upward in the chill night air, a vow of chastity and obedience could be taken by all present. Seriously, some means of clearing the air of past deeds and a renewing of purpose for future behavior is needed during honor emphasis week. This is one suggestion for its implimentation, which no matter how facetiously developed, is basically sound. But the responsibility is dual, too. Confession without a change of heart is just hot air. And a change of heart is what we all need. This might possibly be the way to effect it. Reinhart sees honor system; proposes five rule changes To the Editor: At the October 16 convocation, opinions, thoughts and suggestions regarding the honor system were solicited. Some of my thoughts on the subject are presented in outline form below. THE HONOR SYSTEM L If the honor system were modified to be applicable only to academic matters, it would undoubtedly become a more respected institution. Standards of honor and of behavior are more generally agreed upon in academic, than in socia' matters. 2. If some of the antiquated social rules were modified, it probably would be a matter of indifference whether the honor system were modified or not, because the major problems with the system are related to the rules to which it applies and not to the system itself. RULE CHANGES Consider the following proposed set of rule changes: L. New sign-out policy: A student is required to sign out for two types of activities only: overnights and trips or activities taking place outside the Atlanta-Decatur area. 2. New time limit policy: A student not on an overnight is required to be on campus before 2 a.m. each night. A student returning to campus after this hour will have difficulty getting into her drom and will have to explain her lateness to Judicial Council and may be subject to a penalty. (Note there is no such thing as an afternoon time limit.) 3. New drinking policy: The school is not enthusiastic about the prospect of student drinking. However, the official policy on drinking is twofold: students are expected to obey the state law on drinking (which is enforced by the state) and students are expected to act with a sense of propriety at all times. (Note this policy does not encourage, but does not exclude drinking in the dorms.) 4. New statement policy: Students are expected to act with a sense of dignity and propriety at all times. (Note this policy does not prevent students from visiting men in men's living quarters.) 5 . Modified rule on administrative discipline: The rule on administrative discipline as stated in the 1968-6 1 ) student handbook is retained and a statement is added: A student who has been requested to withdraw as a result of the provisions of the rule on administrative discipline has the right to submit her case to the vote of the entire student body. A two-thirds or greater vote in favor of the student is required to overrule the administration's decision. Ereshman would be subject to a slightly more stringent set of rules. Anyone who is at all aware of what thinking is taking place on campuses across the country knows the reasons why the above changes would improve Agnes Scott's rules and would make student life more enjoyable. Therefore, these reasons are not repeated here. However, two comments are submitted for c inside rat ion: 1. In k The Agnes Scott Purpose" it is stated that the school is concerned with the development of the student's social maturity. I submit (hat a minutely prescribed set of rules such as the students now live under does not contribute to this development, but rather hinders and retards it. 2. The comments 1 have made in this letter are the result of a great amount of thought I have given to the matter, but are by no means rigidly fixed. In fact, 1 hope this letter will stimulate not only student comment but also faculty comment-even if in complete disagreement. Sincerely, Phillip B. Reinhart, Assistant Professor of Physics 'Childish' reaction to Harris attacked To the Editor: Although not an unusual paradox among adolescents of any age, be they 40 or 14, I was disappointed several Wednesdays ago to see the students here react to an adult privilege in a childish manner. Perhaps 1 have fallen prey to the sin of pride in that I feel the students as a whole and individually are seriously interested in the matured intellectual approach to seeking out the various aspects of the "world beyond our cloistered walls." 1 feel chagrined at the attitude manifested during Mr. Harris's talk. 1 feel our complaints about the contents of convocation last year are valid, because 1 believed the students wished to be exposed to the views of various peoples and to have the opportunity to investigate them intellectually irregardless of prejudice and to separate for themselves truth from opinion so as to be better able to make decisions on their own concerning our lives. This type of attitude was shamefully lacking when Mr. Harris was here. Girls who snickered oudly and cried over and over, "My God!" only showed their disrespect for their fellow students and their ignorance of the subject and its gravity. Those who disagreed with the man's view and could support their ideas, used a more effective, and I might add a more matured, approach to the problem by going down after his speech and questioning him. Thus they were able to bring more things to light for themselves and those who were curious. We accept it when children and young adolescents take out their frustration by attacking the nearest adult "symbol," but isn't it about time we who have seriously begun the ascent from childhood to adulthood put off such childish actions? Why when we wish increased responsibility symbolic of adulthood, do we continue to act as helpless infants?

A Senior's eye view of TRA-LA, THE SENIOR S ROBE: It sure beats shaving your legs and it's a lot newer cover-up for those hurried breakfasts than the raincoat you've used for the last three years. INVESTITURE THE THREE SIDES OF THE SENIOR are seen in the approach, crouch and kneel behind the magnolias preceding the capping ceremony. First, the senior is diligent, tenacious and lightheaded in her never-ending pursuit of knowledge. Second, she is well-rounded, combining the social with the academic. She is also pleasantly and delicately sentimental about her school and the class of '69. In other words, she has the campus cold. In the last place, the senior is pious and not afraid to stand up for what she believes. "I'll wear my moccasins no matter what anybody says!" Her thing: no more pills popped or palms pressed by KAY PARKERSON Associate Editor The advertisements for "Barbarella" proclaim "see Barbarella do her thing. " What her thing is, is not in doubt very long. From the title sequence, when Jane Fonda, as Barbarella, strips naked while floating weightless in the cabin of her spaceship, the film proceeds to tell it like it is, in the year 40,000 A.D. (which is pretty swinging.) Now you understand why the audience is 90 per cent Tech men. This is definitely not a BARBARELLA movie to see with that blind date, especially if you're shy about such things. Besides, it does your ego no good comparing your bod with Jane Fonda's as she cavorts from adventure to adventure. As for the plot, which although of no importance to that male you're with, might be to you, is simple. Barbarella is sent to a far planet to bring back a wayward earthing who is trying to upset I he peace in the galaxy by reviving that outdated custome of war. Barbarella crash lands on the planet ami works her way from male to male in search of the man in question. She in turn meets a hunter, a blind angel (what a hunk!), a frustrated and frustrating revolutionary and the earthing. David Hemmings, seen in the cameo role of the revolutionary, is simply great and deserves an Oscar nomination. Needless to say, Barbarella gets her man (finally) and also destroys a sin-city which out-sodoms Gomorrah (with the help of the angel, of course). Fveryone lives happily ever, etc., etc. But the movie for all its initial sexual biff, bam and zowey, is a solid work of art. Roger Vadim, the director, has a good product to show for his effort. The plot is so intricate that one gives up trying to outguess it and settles down just to enjoy it. It's also amazing how one gets used to nudity so quickly and after that never notices it. This is no skin-flick, but a picture of what the future could very well be like. A good point is made by Barbarella. It seems that the world of 40,000 A.I), has outgrown traditional sex, and now makes love by popping pills and pressing palms for stimulation. Barbarella is taught the old method by the hunter who rescues her from the crash on the planet. After it's all over, she exclaims, "Maybe the old ways are better after all." ''Barbarella," for all its futuristic imaginings, turns out to be just another old movie brightened up by sex, science fiction and good acting But it's a movie I definitely recommend. You certainly won't be bored. And maybe the old ways are better after all. by sandra earley Once upon a time there was a tiny country out in the middle of nowhere not far from a rapid transit line This country was inhabited by about 1000 souls all of whom had a problem. The whole country was dedicated to the counting of exclamation points in the literature of the universe and each person from the day he learned to count went to his stall in the huge library in the center of the country and counted all day long. It was here a change became noticeable. As each little person sat hunched over his book of the day counting with his felt-tipped pen and legal pad, a strange sound would begin to rise from his lips as he worked. It sounded rather like the hurried mastication of raw celery. "Gritch, gritch, gritch," the people would mumble over their books. So pronounced was the noise from all the inhabitants of the land that these people themselves soon came to be called "gritches" and their land referred to as S-O-B or Sound-Over-Books land. This unusual change went on in people born into the land for numbers of years until one year when a young gritch named Humort was born. To begin with he followed the pattern of all young gritches. One day he too started making a sound, but his came out different. He found himself saying "Gritchel, gritchel, grit'chcl" and he liked it. It gave him a wonderfully bubbly feeling inside. He decided he'd count colons instead of exclamation points. Hanging m the front of the library was a portrait ol the countrys first citizen, the S.O.B. of the year. It soon appeared with its face to the wall. Placed rather near the lower half of the frames backside, was a sign reading T.H.E. End. Well, all the gritches filed into the library as usual that morning and started to work. But one by one they looked up from their work. They stared at the S.O.B.s picture with its backside out. The gritches quietened down. Suddenly from several parts of the room a "gritchel" was heard. Humort's wonderful bubbly feeling filled the room. The galloping glooms were gone and all because of a young man who dared to "gritchel" instead of "gritch."

The first is the Court Square Gallery in Decatur. It is on Sycamore Street, across the street from Casual Corner. It was opened earlier this year by Wilmot Phillips and Richard Palmer, both former students at Georgia State College. Their exhibit includes sculpture, pottery, sketches, designs and paintings, all of which are for sale. All the work currently on display was done by teachers and students in the Atlanta area. The works to be exhibited are all chosen by a panel of teachers from Georgia State. The second gallery is of a more personal interest, at least for one member of the Agnes Scott student body. This gallery is the Palinurus on 15th Street across from the High Museum. They now have on exhibition six works by Judy Lange, a junior art major. Her work is an assortment containing two oil prints, three ink prints and a painting. Judy said she learned of this gallery through a brochure and submitted her work. She had to appear before a board of students and faculty from the Atlanta School of art who reviewed her work. This gallery is a new one also and is on the first floor of a house owned by Joe David, an Atlanta artist. The collection for sale includes sculpture, prints, paintings and constructions.

" PEGBOARD REP COUNCIL DEFEATED Tuesday the motion to recommend to Dr. Alston that Convocation cutting be put under the point system. The vote was 12 against, 11 favorable, and 1 abstention. The question of the enforcement of Convocation attendance will go back to Convocation Committee for further discussion. Rep Council passed three resolutions brought to the board by Patsy May, chairman of Rules Committee. The resolution regarding sophomore's social engagements extended their social engagements from three to four for the fall and winter quarters, making the social engagements equal for all three quarters. This is another small step toward individual responsibility since Rep Council feels sophomores are capable of scheduling their time to their best advantage. I he remaining resolutions pertained to t he Chaperonage Policy. RC-61 states that for sophomores, juniors and seniors the Chaperonage Policy should serve as a guideline. For freshmen a breach of the policy is subject to judicial action. Rep Council also discussed the letter to the editor in the October 25 edition of th PROFILE. It was noted that the Appalachian Folk festival was cancelled because preparations for Investiture would require the hiring of extra men at over time pay if Games were used Friday night. It was also stated that the Atlanta "Journal" subscriptions are sold on campus. As soon as the Hub is remodeled.

The University of Pittsburg professor holds honorary degrees and has published about 30 books. IN THE HOCK FY games last Friday, the sophomores defeated the freshmen, 1-0, while the seniors tied the juniors, 0-0,. It was the first time the sophomores had ever scored in a game! This afternoon the seniors will play the sophomores and the juniors will play the freshmen at 4 p.m. Last Saturday, Furman visited the Agnes Scott campus for a hockey game. The final score was Furman, 2, Agnes Scott, 1. The Scotties will have another chance to win on November 16 when the teams play in Greenville. IN AN INFORMAL VFRBAL POLL conducted by members of the campus Young Republicans Club, Republican Presidential Candidate Richard Nixon led the field with 79 votes as opposed to 35 for Democrat Hubert Humphrey and one lone vote for American Independent Party Candidate George Wallace. The poll, which was taken by 15 members of the club, interviewed only students who were registered to vote. Students were asked if they were registered and if so, would they mind stating who they planned to vote for. President of Young Republicans Marion Hinson said the poll was originally conceived to find out who on campus might need an absentee ballot. She said the club also thought it would be interesting to compare the results of its poll with the mock election held for all students by C o - ( ! u r r i c u 1 a r Committee on October 3 1 .

W BlWEP -WCUCER OF WIS NOVEMBER 15, 1968 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 Play's provocative subject stretches actresses' ability By BEVERLY WALKER Feature Editor Lillian Hellman's 'The Children's Hour" is proving challenging to Blackfriar's aspiring actresses. Now that rehearsals are in full swing and the outlines of the set are appearing on the stage, the actresses are fully realizing their characters. The play concerns the disruption a child causes with a lie. The theme is "the bigger the lie" and the lie in this play is a real whopper. Patricia Johnston, who plays Karen Wright, said, 'There is a lot of emotion in the play that the actresses have never felt." To know what Karen must have gone through in having to send her man away and finding out her best friend has killed herself is, we must admit, totally out of Tricia's realm of experience. She commented, 'Tve never had a fiance, much less sent one away." Mollie Douglas, who plays Martha Dobbie, has perhaps the roughest role. She feels the psychology is the hardest part. "Getting into the character and not letting it tear me apart," is a real concern, she said. Martha commits suicide at the end of the play. Mollie says she feels Martha is basically normal but has built her life around Karen and the school. Mollie also realizes that Martha has a jealous and possessive nature. "She is very sensitive and high-string and can't cope with the situation that arises. She pulls these rumors in, and in applying them to herself, magnifies and eventually believes them." In the role of the grandmother, Mrs. Tilford, Carol Ann McKenzie said she is having a little trouble being 65 years old but she's aging fast. Mrs. Tilford is one of the villains in the play. She represents the society that would naturally shun any kind of degrading behavior. The very idea of her granddaughter's teachers being lesbians is too much for her. Mary, the little monster, is played by Judy Langford. In Judy's words, "Mary is a pathological liar. She tells lies, feels absolutely no guilt and is not concerned with the results of her escapades. She is constantly plotting and calculating acts of mischief." Judy conferred with Miriam K. Drucker, professor of psychology, about Mary's psychological problem. Mrs. Drucker commented people like Mary never show any true emotions unless they think someone is FRESHMAN PATRICE BRIGGS is working to accumulate the hours required for membership in Blackfriars. On a recent afternoon she ran an errand up to the theatre light booth while working on the set crew for the forthcoming production of "The Children's Hour." picking on them or unless they don't get what they want. Then the emotion is true anger. Concerning the theme of the play, Roberta Winter, director, hopes the homosexual angle won't detract from the main theme which deals with the effects lies and rumors have had on the lives of the people involved. What makes Mary tell these lies, what causes Karen to send away the man she loves and what causes Martha to commit suicide are questions to be analysed. Nov. 21, 22, 23 at 8:15 a.m. in Dana. Tickets are $ 1 .25 and group rates are available. Friendship short at juvenile home by TYREE MORRISON With the help of Mrs. Guerry Stukes, Athletic Association has organized a recreational program for the girls at the DeKalb County Juvenile Home. The home is a temporary residence for both girls and boys from the county who are between the ages of 13 and 16 and are awaiting removal to reformatories, foster homes or impending trials. These children, for the most part, have committed only minor crimes; 80 per cent of them have been apprehended for running away from home. Fran fl them wear skin-tight clothes heavy makeup, and talk about "sex, soul and drugs. " One particular girl seems to live in a black leather jacket with "Soul" written across the back. In spite of the group's appearance, Anna Gordon, who has also worked at the home, remarked, "These girls are not like hoodlums but are kids deprived of homelife, and this makes them act as they do. " They conform "to what they think is cool, " probably in the hope of gaining attention or popularity. A.A.'s goal is to expand the girls' interests and to encourage new activities. Groups of three or Jour Scott girls work 45 minutes a week at the home. A supervisor from the home is always present; however, the girls are exceptionally friendly, well-behaved and quite responsive. Fran commented on how well-adjusted the girls seemed and how easily they made friends: "One thing I've noticed, they're not cliquish like most junior high kids. " The girls unite, however, to help each other. During a dodge ball game, one of the girls, who is pregnant, insisted on participating, but the others protected her throughout the whole game. This fall the recreational program includes dodge ball and spud, which the girls at the home nickname "stud" or "speed." Fran hopes in the winter to concentrate on grooming lessons and organize a beauty parlor for the girls. The only drawback Scott girls find with the program is that it is impossible to make friendships with individual girls. Because the girls are only temporary residents, the groups constantly changes from week to week. Grad schools get light draft impact By SUSIE SCHMIDT College Press Service WASHINGTON (CPS) Although the nation's gradate schools did not face the 70 per cent reduction in fall enrollment some predicted last year because of the draft, the second semester crunch may hurt them badly. Most universities were taken by surprise this fall, when the 25-50 per cent of their students expecting to be drafted returned to school after all. Some universities, which had accepted more graduate students than they could handle in order to make up for the draft's toll, have been faced with money and housing shortages-and too many students. In February, when the Selective Service System announced that graduate students would no longer be deterred "in the national interest," both universities and the government predicted that schools might lose up to 70 per cent of their first-year students. They forecast a great increase in female and middle-aged graduate students. Selective Service officials predicted that students would make up as much as 90 per cent of the draft call-ups in many states. The Defense Department said 63 per cent of the 240,000 draftees predicted for 1969 would be students. But the crunch failed to materialize this fall. Tor one thing, draft calls beginning in July were drastically lower than those for previous months. How much calls will rise will depend on the manpower needs of the armed forces, the status of the Vietnam war and the mood of the new President. But they are sure to rise at least a little, according to Mrs. Betty Vetter, an official of the Scientific- Manpower Commission, a private research agency in Washington. Her prediction is based on the fact that draft calls for the last few years have run in 18-month cycles, the high point of the latest cycle is due in January 1969. Whatever the increase, it is sure to hit students harder next semester; under present draft regulations, the oldest eligible males are first to go, and graduate students newly classified 1-A are perfect targets. Those who receive induction notices during the present school term are allowed to stay in school to finish the term, but must then report for induction. Graduate schools at several universities nave reported drops in enrollment from one to 20 per cent. Professional schools seem harder hit than most. At Valparaiso University, 25 of 1 50 students enrolled in the Law School didn't register in September. Lehigh University reports a 13 per cent decrease in enrollment. And at many schools, graduate departments found that women and older (over-26) men made up larger portions of their enrollees than ever before. Some schools claimed that their students are of lower ability than they would have been before the draft. Universities, which opposed the move to end graduate deferments, are reacting to students' concern in many ways. Several heavily graduate universities, among them Massachusetts Institute of Technology, have announced that students whose education is interrupted by the draft-either for two years of service or for a jail sentence for resistance-will later be able to resume their degree work where they left off, and will stand a good chance of having their fellowships renewed. Several schools are also investigating new degree programs like MIT's five-year engineering program-in which the student does not officially receive his bachelor's degree until he receives his master's in a fifth year (and so is classed as an undergraduate for five years).

PAGE 4 THE PROFILE NOVEMBER 15, 1968 PEGBOARD ALLEN WEXLER will discuss the Atlanta Model Cities Program in Chapel today at 11:30 a.m. in Maclean. VVexler is with the community relations division of the program. The Atlanta Model Cities Program is one of the main attempts at a multiple approach to the problems of slums. It emphasizes grass roots leadership in slum areas and also brings in the work of all major social agencies to focus on the area. SEVENTEEN WHITE GIRLS from St. Theresa's College, a Catholic woman's college in Winona, Minnesota, are attending the all-Black Spelman College here in Atlanta on a full year exchange program. About a month ago Sylvia Chapman, assistant dean of students, was contacted by Sadie Allen, an assistant dean at Spelman, who suggested the St. Teresa students might visit Agnes Scott while they are in Atlanta so they may see how another campus operates. Miss Chapman then turned the project over to Tara Swartzel, chairman of Intercollegiate. Tara is in the process of arranging for these students to visit a Representative Council meeting at Scott and then stay for supper so they may have an inside view of life here. According to Tara, the present delay in the plan is that the Dean of Student's staff has to decide if we can accommodate 20 more people at dinner - the girls and other representatives of Spelman who may accompany them. If this decision is favorable, Tara will contact Gloria Manson, president of the Spelman student body, to issue formally the invitation and make the final arrangements. If this plan is successful a reciprocal arrangement may be worked out so that Agnes Scott students may in turn visit other campuses. AT THE TUESDAY meeting of Representative Council, Tina Brownley, student government president, installed two new members. They were Susi Parks, freshman representative, and Cassandra Brown, sophomore representive. RC 61 regarding the reorganization of Judicial Council was passed. The purpose of this resolution was to correct the clause in the handbook stating the student government president presides over Judicial meetings in the absence of the chairman. The new vice-chairman of Judicial will now assume this responsibility. RC 59 proposing sophomores be allowed unlimited social engagements was passed.

By this policy if groups of girls go out together on weekend nights, they do not necessarily have to be back by 1 1 :45 p.m. Rep. Council also discussed a few of the objectives for the rest of the quarter and for winter quarter. A few of the suggestions were the following: permission for sophomores to have cars on campus fall and winter quarters as well as spring quarter, a study of the laundry, effort to get more late permissions for weekends, and more T.V.'s available for dates to watch. If anyone has any suggestions on things that would be helpful to the campus, please contact your friendly Rep. representative.

What do you think of the Pope's encyclical on birth control/ Deborah Ann Claiborne, '70: "lt\s a personal matter, up to the individual. It has no relevence in the religious sphere. I don't think it's realistic." Bebe Guill, ^70: "Well I don't agree with it just because it keeps a couple from having fun. It's not a sin to use it. To me, taking the pill is more moral than not taking it. The world is having too much of a problem with overpopulation as it is." Scottie Carol Slaton, '70: "Some day when it's proved safer, they might change their mind. Maybe they're waiting to see the consequences." Sally Walker, l 69: "It surely would cramp your style if you were Catholic. Personally, I don't think it's any of his business.

THE ROFMLE VOLUME LV NUMBER 10 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 NOVEMBER 22, 196S New employees may be hired at $1.15 per hour; raise soon by ELIZABETH MATHES The average non-faculty, administration or staff employee at Agnes Scott lives in the Greater Atlanta area. He is approximately 32 years old and probably has finished high school. Most of the male employees have another job while the females moonlight as housewives. Thirty per cent have a year-round job with the college as opposed to the five per cent who did some years ago. The beginning salary for an unskilled, inexperienced young person is $1.15 per hour. Maids and other general laborers in that category receive $1.60 per hour. Janitors and men, because of the heavier work, start at $ 1 .50 to $2 per hour. SEMI-SKILLED AND skilled workers receive higher pay. Beginning in February, the minimum starting salary for any worker will be increased to $1.31 per hour. All other salaries will be raised proportionately. (Editor's note: Minimum wage for businesses engaged in interstate commerce is $1.65 per hour). Salary benefits include one full week of vacation with pay, and one full week of sick leave with pay. After one year's work, employees are eligible for coverage under the college's Blue Cross-Blue Shield Insurance policy. After two years of employment, employees receive two weeks vacation with pay. All employees receive a Christmas vacation and those with year-round jobs have one in the summer. The school has made an attempt to give year-round jobs to its employees and thereby stablize the turnover from seasonal employment. Except in the case of firemen, maintenance and security men, all hiring is done by department heads. The turnover of employees since the 1968-69 school year began is approximately 10 per cent of the total employed. After Thanksgiving this percentage should drop to five and remain stable until the close of the school year when summer jobs become available. WHEN QUESTIONED ABOUT the number of college employees who signed up for the C.A. sponsored Adult Literacy program, Business Manager P. J. Rogers said the college tries to hire those who are able to read and write, and fortunately fewer and fewer are handicapped by not having these skills. "In the fifties," he stated, "only 40 per cent of the campus employees could read and write, while now, only 10 per cent of the employees even signed up for the C.A. course." Rather extensive checking is done into the background of the people hired by the college. Good references are necessary, as well as an adequate amount of education for the job applied for. Experience in the job is preferred. ( POLICE RECORDS ARE checked as is the prospective employee's credit rating. There must be no outstanding garnishments against them. In fact, if court action is taken against present employees, the policy is to "let them go," according to Mr. Rogers. "This hasn't happened in the last 6 or 8 years", Rogers said, due to a determined policy of prevention. Mr. Rogers stressed the hiring policy must be flexible because of the market dealt with. "The main problem is money - matching dollar for dollar, the money people can get outside," he explained. Quite often, "we have to accept what isn't really the most desirable. We don't have much choice. 'Hands and feet' is the local term," Rogers concluded. Literacy course taken to aid own child, for phone clarity by BEVERLY WALKER Feature Editor The Adult Literacy Program is designed to improve reading and writing skills. At Agnes Scott there are 17 people who work for the college enrolled in the course offered through C.A. service projects with ASC students as teachers. The pupils in the program interviewed seemed to enjoy working at the college and think the literacy program is aa good idea. In speaking with these "students", it was interesting to find out how they enjoyed the program, how they felt they were coming along, if there was any particular reason why they joined the program and if they felt any differently toward the college and the students as a whole now that they were working with one of the students. The first person interviewed was Emma Lois Parker who works in the Dana Fine Arts Building. Emma responded, "I really like it." She explained she can read, but she's not sure of the meaning or sounds of the words. She also feels that she can learn more about the abbreviations of words. She always feels that she can learn more about the abbreviations of words. She always thought "Miss" had a period after it just as "Mr." and "Mrs." does. Emma said she is satisfied with the program. She's doing just what she wanted to-improving her speech. One of the major reasons Emma joined the program was so she could learn to speak words more clearly so when she answers the phone in Dana, people will be able to understand her better. Emma has been at Scott for six years. The first three she worked in the laundry and now she is in Dana. She enjoys working Dana because she gets to know the students and teachers. Wesley Starks and Jeannette Baker who work in the library are also enthusiastic about the program. Wesley said he was "enjoying it best in the world." He felt he was learning better and "wouldn't give it up for anything." Wesley says he does feel close to the students and likes working with Page McCullough. Jeannette Baker responded: "I think I'm doing pretty good." She joined the program because she felt like learning more. She said, one "never can improve enough." Jeannette enjoys working with Truly Bracken. Mildred Foster and Mary Slaton who work in the laundry also participate in the program. Mildred enjoys the program and feels she is learning. Working in the laundry, she has not had much contact with the students and she enjoys the program and looks forward to her classes. She feels she is learning. Mary has three children at home two boys, ages four and five, and a baby girl seven months. One of the boys will be starting school next year and she feels this program will help her to help him. Mary also added, "I thought it would help me in the things that I don't know and there's a lot 1 don't know, as you can see." Mary also added (maybe with a little prompting) that she enjoys working with me. Adult literacy project helps 'student" read about fishing hv AI.FXA M ACINTOSH AGNES SCOTT EMPLOYEE Mary Slaton works at the pressing machine in the college laundry; the ma- chine both presses and dries the flat work. Mary is also a "student" of Beverly Walker in the C.A. Ad- ult Literacy program. by ALEXA MACINTOSH Campus News Editor Agnes Scott students have been participating in the C.A. Adult Employee Educational project for about six weeks now, long enough to improve their teaching methods and to have some opinion of their success. The students have been taught the Laubach method. This system uses pictures in association with words and sounds. The sounds are then connected with key-words to build the reading vocabulary. The manuals are unsealed and contain, besides the reading lessons, writing lessons, charts and homework. The reactions of the Agnes Scott students involved in the program as teachers are all favorable. In the words of Karen Cappel, "I really like the program and feel like it is worthwhile." Others agree and comment on the student-pupil relation. Julianne Lynes said, "Mine is a real hard worker-one who is really dedicated and wants to learn. She gets real excited when she remembers something from previous schooling that we are reviewing. It's not a student teacher type things in my case; we've really gotten to be friends. We can talk about other things then just the book." Bev Walker replied, "She's about my age and she's so great! She just loves to write on the blackboard. It's a very worthwhile program that 1 think could be expended to include children in this area. Tech and Emory have programs that include children. Our is a friend to friend basis. In fact, there is a lot of laughing and joking. I am getting just as much out of it as she is." Evelyn Brown also teaches in the- program. She said, "I am really enjoying participating in the program. It means as much to me as to her. I certainly don't feel like a teacher. She really enjoys articles about subjects of interest to her such as fishing." Tyler McEadden has run into a problem however. "Neither she nor I can actually pronounce the phonetic sounds correctly because we both have southern drawls. Usually she can pronounce it better than I can. It's all very worthwhile because she feels the need to do it." Myki Powell stressed the progress already made: "After first going over the charts we began studying what is of interest to her. Eor example, we are reading some poetry for its meaning. Much progress has been made. We have become real good friends. It's a very worthwhile experience. One of the things that she likes best is riding up and down the elevator in Dana." (CONT.

According to this article, $3,334 per year is necessary to maintain a family at the subsistance level. Your salary would be at least $600 under that. The Agnes Scott pay scale is based on the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1940 which was arr mended by Congress in 1966 to extend minimum wage requirements to previously excluded eleemosynary organizations which include educational institutions. Under this act, minimum wage in 1968 is $1.15 per hour, rising in 1969 to $1.30. Granted many Agnes Scott employees moonlight in addition to their jobs here, but, as Agnes Scott Business Manager P.J. Rogers admitted, a job here probably accounts for most of a family's total income. Nearly one-third of the employees are regularly scheduled to work overtime her to supplement their income, but what about the other two-thirds and what about the additional time the one-third must spend away from their homes and families? Employees are paid in full for the nearly two weeks they do not work at Christmas and they have a Christmas party before the holiday, but what about the jobs terminated in the summer when the dining hall and laundry do not operate? The overall turn-over rate is remarkably low; however, when the laundry staff for example, is examined individually, the rate climbs. "We are finally working in the right direction," Mr. Rogers said in reference to rising salaries. He said the college is trying to build up the salaries of those in the lowest group before the whole can be raised. He said Agnes Scott will be up with the Emory University and Georgia Tech scales within two years. At this point it might be interesting to call attention to a fact and two events. First, although the total fees for Agnes Scott students have increased by $200 each year for the past several, the increase has come in tuition costs, not room and board which is the source for worker salaries and building maintenance. Second, guess what happened at Duke University last spring and Emory University ths fall? Students, faculty and employees banded together for action calling for higher wages, more benefits and a union for the employees. It is true that there seems to be a real personal feeling of affection and loyalty between employees and the college. Employees can call on the college and individuals here for help in times of need, but you can't eat personal feeling. Things like higher wages, a seniority system and a credit union are far more dependable and enable the individual to stand on his own two feet. To the Editor: I am writing this note to express my personal appreciation of the supportive editorial in the PROFILE, dealing with Dean Kline's resignation. It is helpful at this particular time to have an editorial in this vein, and I believe many in the administrative staff, faculty, and student body will be grateful to you for the tribute to Dean Kline and for the sensible handling of the matter.

To the Editor: Although I approve of the attempt to concern your readers with issues beyond the campus, I feel it necessary to comment on the "Scottie Speaks" of last week, for my own sake and for the sake of Roman Catholic students on campus. These are difficult times for my coreligionists; we have before us a crisis which transcends the bounds of the moral question which was posed by "Humanae Vitae". I deplore, therefore, the manner in which everyone seems to feel competent at the slightest notice to evaluate and pronounce infallibly on the matter. To say that the problem is not a question for street polls is not to do justice to the fact that a street pool approach to the moral and religious problems of others is obscene. If there is genuine interest, there are other approaches to use and there are competent people to consult. Sincerely, Richard D. Parry, Assistant Professor of Philosophy about fishing (CONT.

Truly Bracken, Page McCullough, Kappa Moorer, Nicki Noel and Linda Wilson also are teaching in the adult education program. by sandra earley As was announced in class meetings Monday, the Junior Class is currently looking for suggestions for this year's Junior Jaunt with the idea in mind of a major change in format from past years. As one of the nose-to-the-grindstoners involved in last year's rather abortive effort, I feel compelled to make a suggestion about this year's project. It would seem if we can't have a successful campus charity drive we should forget the whole thing, tradition or not. Perhaps the whole approach of Junior Jaunt is invalid. The idea of a campus charity effort is fine, but its implementation has become ineffective. Maybe we're jsut a bit selfish in planning a weekend which is fun for us with dances and skits, a weekend when we spend money that just happens to go to charity. I wonder about the possibility of mobilizing a large part of the student body to get out and work, rather than just pulling out their wallets. What about everyone promising to save one of our precious Saturday mornings in spring quarter to work on some project? We manage to do it for Derby Day. We would probably have to find a project to work on through some established organization so that our efforts wouldn't be wasted, but say we could find an old building someone needed to have fixed up for a teen canteen or something. On this one Saturday morning, a fleet of student (and faculty?) cars could be waiting after breakfast to take a crew of people to the building to paint and clean up. Other students who felt more domestic could remain on campus to make curtains, etc., on sewing machines borrowed from girls on campus. A third crew could gather up a lunch for the workers and transport it to the sight to serve it. There are many possibilities for jobs and work groups could cut across class lines unlike the present Junior Jaunt organization. So it's all conjecture, but we have a whole quarter to make something like this reality. We need to get out among other kinds of people, other age groups. Ever noticed how everyone around here is between the ages of 1 8 and 22? A good example of our need to see other kinds of people occured one night last week when Randy Jones and several other girls had some children as guests for dinner in the dining hall. Other students couldn't take their eyes away from the children. It's so easy to forget they exist. Maybe what we need if we can't change Junior Jaunt is an Agnes Scott child-in-residence. NOVEMBER 22, 1968 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 Importance of identity questioned in Brecht play by TERRI LANGSTON "A man's a man is Mr. Breeht's contention,/But that is something anyone might mention. /Mr. Breeht appends this item to the bill:/You can do with a human being what you will." To present a drama with the foregoing message is quite a chore. The Academy Theatre's production of Bertolt Brecht's "A Man's a Man" is very good. Brecht demonstrates his contention through the metamorphosis of the porter, Galy Gay, into a blood-thirsty soldier of the British Army. In the German version, Gay probably looks Chinese. When asked if he is of Irish descent, he answers, "I think so." Fittingly, at Atlanta's Academy Theatre, a Black actor, Stacy Hines, plays Galy Gay. His rendition is superb. The impact of his lines during his metamorphosis dispels any first impression that the part may be somewhat caricatured. Stacy Hines sweats, shouts, whispers, laughs and cries, fulfilling a strenous part very well. Likewise, Laura James renders the Widow Begbick with all the callousness she can muster. She shows the guts necessary for a prostitute-bar owner traveling with an army unit known as "the Scum." Tony Sciabona as Uriah Shelly and Jon Evans as Bloody Five, the sergeant whom rain transforms into a sex-hungry maniac, represent well the man lowered to animalism by mundane experience. Only the renditions of Jesse Mahoney, one of "the Scum," and Mrs. Galy Gay are weak. In general, the singing is vigorous and the lines hardhitting. The Academy's theatre building is intimate, giving the feeling that YOU are being badgered to "join the army, Dan!" The Academy group does its best to see that you "don't miss the moral of the case/That this world is a dangerous place." Students interview Nixon on T.V.: when to be seen? by JOHN SIEFERT Editor's note: John Siefert is a student at the University of Chicago. CHICAGO (CPS)-Roger Ailes of the Nixon staff met us Tuesday morning, October 1, for breakfast and a final briefing. "Us" was four students who had been picked to tape a program with the candidate titled "Richard Nixon on Campus." The half-hour program was to have been aired Thursday evening, October 10, on CBS. The air time was purchased weeks in advance. But the program never made it on the air. When Ailes met us tor breakfast, he explained the final format of the show. The taping would be done at the College of William and Mary in Colonial Williamsburg, Va. Ailes explained we would tape about an hour and a half of discussion with Mr. Nixon, this would be edited down to a half-hour program. THE EDITING WOULD be done for two reasons. First, as Ailes had explained to us the previous weekend in our preliminary meetings with him in Detroit, the Nixon staff is determined to prevent the kind of slip that ruined George Romney. What if Romney did have the only solution to the Vietnam war, Ailes explained. His chance to put it into effect was ruined when he said he was "brainwashed." Second, Ailes explained, it would be necessary to edit the program to "tighten up"-edit out the uninteresting verbage while preserving the "high points." Other than preventing a major slip of the "brainwash" variety, Ailes said he was not interested in censoring what we had to say or suggesting that we go "easy" on the candidate. LONG AFTER THE VIEWERS have forgotten what the candidate or panelists say, Ailes explained, they will remember the tone of a program. So he suggested that what he wanted on the program was "warmth." Hostility, it was plain, was out. I thought about what Ailes had said as the four of us (Don Lively of the University of California at Berkeley, Cary Brown of Georgia Tech, Jim Verlight, formerly of Michigan State University, and myself) sat in Christopher Wren Hall having our make-up put on. ALL FOUR PANELISTS were white. When I first met Ailes to discuss the format of the program I suggested that one of the panelists be a black student. "Black people should speak for black people," I suggested. Ailes rejected this, saying that black Americans compose only 1 1 per cent of the population and that white students could represent the views of the black students on their campuses. At about 1 1:30 Nixon arrived. Everyone not directly connected with the production was ushered out of the room. (Nixon came with his make-up'already on.) THE TAPE BEGAN with a question by Don Lively of Berkeley on how Nixon planned to encourage student participation in his administration. The question, which was vague in nature, got a vague reply. I followed by asking, "About half of the draft-eligible graduating seniors at the University of Chicago signed the following statement, which I'll try to quote from memory: ''Our war in Vietnam is unjust and immoral. As long as the United States is involved in this war I will refuse induction into the armed forces and counsel, aid, and abet others to do the same.' That's a very strong statement, Mr. Nixon..." "Yes it is, yes it is," Nixon broke in. It was obvious he wasn't expecting this one. I continued, "Mr. Nixon, what are you going to do to help these young men in the moral dilemma they face?" Nixon explained that he came from a Quaker background and that his parents had adamantly opposed his going to war. So he could understand the kind of moral conflict these young men faced. He added, however, that this did not justify breaking the law. He wound up his answer by pledging himself to a volunteer army as soon as the Vietnam war ended. "WOULDN'T A VOLUNTEER army be largely black?" Lively broke in. "Jt might, it might," Nixon said, adding that he didn't necessarily think that was bad. The question of the draft, naturally, led into the war. Someone asked whether the military government in South Vietnam really deserved our support. "Well, they certainly have more freedom in the South than they have in the North. They don't have any freedom at all in the North. I know they're not perfect in the South. ..we're not perfect here in the United States," Nixon added lamely. "But should we support the Thieu-Ky military dictatorship?" someone repeated, suggesting that Nixon was dodging the question. "They hold free elections..." Nixon said. 1 4 WHERE THEY PUT the opposition candidate in jail," I added, "Mr. Nixon, wouldn't you object if the opposition put you in jail?" "I certainly would. I certainly would," he repeated. At this point he seemed a little shook. He made a reference to Caracas, where he was stoned bv student demonstrators in 1960. 1 he taping session ended a little after 1 p.m. A short walk through the gardens of Alan Byrd house later that afternoon was also taped. This footage was to substitute for a planned walk through the campus of the College of William and Mary, which had to be cancelled because of student demonstrations. 6 BircT stand removed Saturday to return? A week ago tomorrow, Mary Lou Romaine, '70, was called away from her student aid job in the library to see Dean of Students Carrie Scandrett. During the interview she was asked to remove the stand selling copies of "The (Jreat Speckled Bird" in front of the dining hall. College officials in connection with student government officers had granted permission this fall to sell the weekly Atlanta underground newspaper on campus. Mary Lou, sister of Howard Romaine, a "Bird" editor, is campus representative for the newspaper. Mary Lou was requested to remove the stand after the college became aware of a restraining order issued by the local courts against the sale of the newspaper. President of the College Wallace M. Alston, who also talked with Mary Lou, said the restraining order was not clear whether it applied to all issues of the "Bird" or only to the November 1 1 one which has been alleged obscene. "We have not suppressed the "Bird," Dr. Alston said, "we simply asked her to desist until we could find out the extent of the restraining order." Dr. Alston emphasized the college is not suppressing the underground newspaper; it is complying with the present restraining order which Tuesday was clarified to apply only to the November 1 1 issue. He said if the restraining order is not extended to include all issues of the "Bird," it can again be sold on campus. After her discussions with Miss Scandrett and Dr. Alston, Mary Lou Romaine said, "An institution with Agnes Scott's reputation and dignity should be outraged at suppression of freedom of the nivss." A letter is currently being circulated among faculty members by Mary Lou, Patricia Daunt, Cornelia DeLee and others. It is slated to be sent to the Atlanta Constitution in the near future. As of this writing, the letter has been signed, according to Mary Lou, by Penelope Campbell, assistant professor of history and political science, Martha M. Traylor, visiting professor of political science and Robert F. Westervelt, assistant professor of art. The text of the letter reads: "We, the undersigned, faculty from colleges and universities in the Atlanta area, feel that the indictment of members of the staff of "The Great Speckled Bird" represents a substantial threat to the freedom of the press." "While not necessarily agreeing with the entire policy or position of "The Great Speckled Bird," we do feel that portions of the newspaper are a valid artistic and political expression of a segment of our society. Furthermore, we believe that diversity of expression is vital to a free society." WINKLER Gulf Service 102 W.

THE FRESHMEN TRIUMPHED at the swim meet PEGBOARD November 14, winning 7 out of eleven events. They started their winning streak with the 80 yard medley relay. Leigh Ann Peterson was the backstroke; Montie Smith, breaststroke; Betty Zaslove, butterfly; and Gale Fisher, freestyle. In the front crawl form event the judges watched the style and form of the swimmer. Margo Powell won this event for the juniors. Gale Fisher, a freshman, set a new school record in the 40 yard freestyle. Gale cut the old time, 22.2 seconds, to 20.5 seconds. The fourth event, the breaststroke form, was won by Nancy Griffin for the freshmen. The 40 yard breaststroke event was won by Lou Frank for the seniors. Lane Ervin, a freshman, won the diving competition by performing three difficult dives: a front dive pike, an inward dive pike and a forward one-and-one-half somersault. Another freshman, Jean Jennings, won the backstroke form event. The eighth event, the 40 yard backstroke competition, was won by Darcy Gerrard for the sophmores. Gale Fisher set another record. 36.2 seconds, in the 60 yard individual medley. The previous record time had been 37.3. This event includes the butterfly stroke, backstroke and freestyle. Scobey Dowsley won the sidestroke form competition for the sophomores. The final event, the 80 yard freestyle relay, was taken by the freshmen. The relay was performed by Harriet Wolff, Nancv Thomas, Leigh Ann Peterson and Betty Zaslove. At the end of the meet the sophomores were in second place having won two events, and third place went to the seniors. GIRLS FROM AGNES SCOTT traveled to Greenville to participate in three hockey games Saturday, November 16.

His name is John Rafiq. John is a native of West Pakistan and lived there until 7 years ago, when he came to America to attend Tennessee Wesleyan College. He is now working on his masters of divinity at Candler Seminary. One Sunday while visiting the college for dinner, John heard about our hockey games. Now he attends Peggy Cox's 12:10 hockey class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the class team practices in the afternoon and the games on Friday. John has been interested in hockey for a long time because it is Pakistan's national sport. When he lived in Pakistan he played center forward or right wing for the Air Force Selective team. John enjoys coaching the girls in the classes as well as playing. Page McCullough, manager of the sophomore team, said she gained alot from his demonstrations at the practices. He has a great amount of control over the ball she said, and from experience he knows quite a few tricks to keep the ball away from his opponent. After watching Agnes Scott lose to Furman, John has had the idea of getting a team of eleven girls together to play other colleges. He believes that he could coach a team to play better than any other group in the area. Cerulean blue eyes best part of new film by KAY PARKERSON Associate Editor Zebra" is the of the roles he has had before on "Ice Station newest offering at Martin's Georgia. It's the type of film a boy would like: hard-hitting action, the good guys against the bad guys, no love interest to mush things up and plenty of thrills and chills. And chills it offers plenty of. Set inside the Arctic circle, it is the tale of two submarine teams, Russian and American, racing each other to retrieve a lost film capsule from a downed Russian satellite. The Russians take the easy way out and parachute in during the last ten minutes. But the Americans have to do it the hard way. 1* nter Rock Hudson: the brave, fearless nuclear submarine captain. It is his duty to get the American team there under the polar ice cap, no less. The first half of the movie is devoted to his effort. He succeeds (of course) but almost wrecks the sub trying to come up through the ice cap. Rock's acting is about as stiff as the brim of the baseball cap he wears. Inter complications in the form of two civilian spook -sleuths sent along to recover the film for OUR SIDE; Irnest Borgnine and Patrick McGoohan. You ean have Ernest, but mst give me Pat. The sparks from his cerulean blue eyes was enough to melt the ice and snow so in evidence. His role is typical T.V.: the cool spy, emotionless and very capable. But he even improved upon it for this role. He alone is worth the price of admission. Why so much space over a movie that's really not made with the Scottie in mind (besides Patrick McGoohan, of course)? The movie is redeemed by its spectacular visual effects. As I said before, the first half of the movies is concerned with getting the submarine near enough to the film capsule. Director John Sturges has come up with some breath-taking photography to enhance the realism. As the sub plows through the North Sea heading for the pole, you heave with every wave rocking the ship and shiver in the spray. (Hint: take your heaviest coat and your dramamine along. R he ship goes under the ice cap and cameras outside the ship catch it weaving through the icebergs, the light being provided by the sunlight filtering through several feet of ice. On the whole, the movie is well worth a date. The plodding plot is salvaged by the great photography and special effects. The cardboard acting only makes Patrick McGoohan look that much better. (And Em not prejudiced a bit!) Go see it by all means, but take your earmuffs. my date thinks he got frostbite.

(CPS)-Mount Holyoke College president Richard Glenn Gettell abruptly announced his resignation here several weeks ag6, amid a flury of rumors that a decision by the college's Board of Trustees to consider alcohol and parietals on campus was "the last straw." The trustees recently formed a committee of two trustees, two administrators, two faculty members and six students to develop proposals for alcohol on campus and parietals (male visitors in dormitories). The trustees also said they would meet in mid-December to consider the proposals. Many students speculate that liberalized policies on alcohol (now forbidden on campus) and parietals (men are now allowed only in the public rooms) will go into effect second semester. President Gettell, who has been on Mount Holyoke since 1957, had originally announced his intention to retire "not later than June 1969." However, his announcement last Monday came as a complete surprise to this private women's college, although he has since explained that he had long ago told the trustees privately this meeting would be his last. Gettell has also been in poor health recently. Pressure for liberalization of the school's antiquated social rules began last September with the announcement of a year-long drive by the Student Government Association to restructure the college, both in the social and academic spheres. The student position paper, "The Case for Participation," prepared in October by the SGA Executive Board, included proposals for greatly liberalized social rules, as well as the right of students to determine their own social policies. The "Case" was mailed to the trustees last month by the Executive Board. Apparently in response to the "Case," the trustees called a formal meeting with the Executive Board, the first such meeting in history. Gettell has been strongly opposed to parietals. He claims they are "immoral," that young ladies should not entertain young men in their bedrooms. He has also said publicly "the College will provide 1 700 necking nooks." Students have grown particularly restless this year, as nearby Smith College does have weekend parietals, and this year instituted liquor on campus at meals, mixers and parties. Student Government sources say Gettell resented having the students go "over his head" by mailing the "Case" directly to the trustees. He is also reportedly upset that the trustees formed the study committee which so obviously went against his wishes. 'Female ghettos' soon to be anachronisms? bv ELLEN LONGDEN (CPS)-Although the place of the sexually segregated college has been questioned since women literally and symbolically began wearing pants, this year's co-education advocates have some rather impressive support. Recently at Princeton University a committee completed an in-depth study of the merits of co-education. The committee concluded that a male-female education program would "greatly enrich the cultural and social life of (Princeton) students and would tend to develop in undergraduates (of opposite sexes) a Sense of responsibility toward one another." Although the study was compiled for use at Princeton, it has served as a model for other colleges, both male and female, who on the strength of their own find ings have in it iated co-educational programs. Solutions to tfte co-educational dilemma have been many. The three primary plans are the multi-college exchange program, the co-ordinate college plan, and total co-education. According to the first proposal, colleges in a specific area (like western Massachusetts or the Hudson River Valley) exchange teachers and permit their students to take courses at the other colleges. Although it provides diversity in course selection, this plan has failed to achieve an integrated classroom and campus situation. Ford ham, Hamilton, Columbia and Harvard Universities operate on a co-ordinating plan. An affiliated women's college shares classes, professors and resources with the men's college while retaining institutional autonomy and identity. Where the women's college is not built by the existing institution there is the problem of finding a comparable college to coordinate with. The final, alternative, co-education, consists of admitting the opposite sex to the established institution. Sarah Lawrence, Bennington and Vassar Colleges (all female) have undertaken such plans. The cost of the project has been estimated at $250,000. It means increasing enrollment or cutting back on women to allow for the admission of men (or vice versa). There is no denying that co-education is not easy to implement. Its ramifications financially and academically are frightening. But it is not a token suggestion designed to dissolve the "finishing school" myth surrounding women's institutions of higher learning. It is rather a theory in the mainstream of contemporary educational thought. 207 at last exam; are gripes justified? The new exam scheduling system doesn't go into effect until next quarter, so unless you've forgotten, we're still functioning under the old way. The old way may be better for Barbarella, but chances are that there won 7 be regrets from students or faculty to see the old one go. But the old system 's not leaving without a bang. N umber ous complaints from upper class men have arisen over th e seem ing fie n d ish n ess o f th eir personal schedules, to wit, exams on Thursday and Friday. Over 200 students will still be in exams Friday morning, December 20, five days before Christmas. One wonders how much attention is left on Friday to be directed toward a ditty which determines a large part of one 's quarter grade. Over one-half of the student body will still be here Thursday morning. Please notice the overload of students getting exams out of the way on Tuesday. A total of 350 exams will be taken on Tuesday as compared to 354 on Thursday afternoon alone. The exam break comes Monday morning, after a grand total of two exams and a whole day to recover in. It's traditional to rest from our labors Sunday as well as Monday morning, but perhaps those 207 scholars taking exams Friday morning would rather switch than fight. So pause for a moment s silent farewell to what we hope is a soon-to-be-forgotten and little lamented exam system.

These books are elearly marked in the card catalog with a note to the effect that they can be obtained at the main desk or will be found in the catalog office. When asked why these partieular books were not in the stacks, Edna 11. Byers, librarian, replied these books tend to "walk off and are neither eharged out or returned. Since the policy of the library is to make these books available to all students, she said, these books had been removed from the stacks as a precaution so that they would he available when called for. Miss Byers refused to speculate on who would take these books, saying there was no way to cheek and "we don't know what happens to the books. They just disappear." She emphasized that anyone can check these books out by merely asking for them and that the staff had not taken the books off of the shelves because they didn't want students to have them. Other libraries also have this problem, Miss Byers said. She mentioned the New York City Library as one where such books are not ever listed in the catalog and could not be obtained. They also refuse to catalog books on firearms. What are these illustrious books? They include: Ellis, "The Psychology of Sex"; Eddy, "Sex and Youth"; Davis, "Sex Life of 2200 Women"; Ellis, "The Encyclopedia of Sexual Behavior"; Kahn, "Our Sex Life: A Guide and Counsellor for Everyone"; Kinsey, "Sexual Behavior in the Human Female" and "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male"; Riehmond, "An Introduction to Sex Education"; and Stone, "A Marriage Manual."

It is sadly ironic that Randy Jones opened Tuesday's Representative Council meeting with the prayer, "Help us to accept the responsibility we have accepted as representatives of the student body...." Perhaps she should have said, "Help us to accept the responsibility WE THINK we have accepted...." At this meeting Rep Council voted on the new drinking policy which had already been passed by the administrative committee. In so doing, the board voted not just on a policy, but on its whole future as an effective organ. In essence, the board approved its own demise and acquiesed to its own invalidity. For two quarters now someone has been extoling the virtues of "working through channels." With the new drinking policy, someone missed a very important channel - the elected representatives of the student body. The proper procedure for any legislation, whether it be the changing of a major policy or an amendment of the student government constitution is that the legislation originating in a Rep Council committee or from the board itself be approved FIRST by a majority vote of Rep Council and then be taken for approval or veto by the administrative committee if necessary. In announcing to Rep Council that she had the new drinking policy which the administrative committee had already approved, Student Government President Tina Brownley explained that the policy had not come before Rep Council first because she and the committee who worked on the policy wished to avoid all the "going back and forth" for re-wording which would have occurred between the administrative committee and Rep Council and its committee. President Brownley's excuse was one of expediency. As she commented concerning another matter, "pragmatism rules." It would seem that things can become too expedient. Rep Council was missed on the drinking policy. Tuesday with the approval of Rep Council itself, another group was missed. According to the student handbook, the procedure for setting up a'new student organization is that the heads of all campus organizations (boards, clubs, honorary societies and publications) meet in committee to approve or not approve the proposed organization. If this committee gives its approval, the written constitution of the new organization must be passed by a two-thirds vote of Rep Council. Tuesday these two steps were hurried together into one without the heads of all campus organizations being present. In this case expediency served a good purpose, but it would seem that someone might have notified the organization heads not regularly required to be present at Rep Council that their attendance was needed at this meeting. We certainly do not quarrel with the worth of the new drinking policy or even with the establishment of a new campus organization. But contained within the action on both is the precedent of having failed to work through elected student representatives. President Brownley has been heard to comment in conversation that she feared students would begin to use the new drinking policy before it went into effect or even to administrative committee if it first went through Rep Council and became common knowledge. She also said she wished to have the policy approved and go into effect as soon as possible. Apparently she knows where the real power lies, and through its vote Tuesday, Rep Council has agreed with her and with her method. It is indeed sad that we have come to this realization. Now perhaps the thing to do is to at least save ourselves from hypocrisy. If something is invalid, get rid of it. Past editor twits PROFILE for no stand on 'Bird' issue To the Editor: 1 am writing you and the Scott "community'' (if this is the label still in vogue out there) about the "Great Speckled Bird" controversy. I have heard disturbing rumors of this paper's being banned on campus, of misinformation being circulated concerning the posture of the "Bird" litigation pending in federal court, of threatened arrests of students who choose either to distribute or even read the "Bird." Finally, this letter proceeds upon my understanding that the Profile has not even taken a stand on the issues presented by this controversy, and upon my conviction that the Profile, of all organizations on campus, should take a strong position in favor of the continued free circulation of this publication. I write this letter both as a past editor of the Profile and as an attorney who worked with other committed attorneys all one night on the pleadings for the federal court brought by the "Bird." 1, therefore, feel doubly strong about the desirability and, in fact, the necessity of your taking a stand on issues which affect your very existence: the freedom of dissident opinion, even if couched in inelegant prose. The issue is not whether you or I agree with political positions advocated by the "Bird;" the issue is not whether we use or even enjoy hearing the rhetoric chosen by its staff writers; the issue is not even whether we condone the social value system espoused by the "Bird," whether it be free love, denuding of soul or body, the use of marajuana, or draft evasion. The issue is simply whether the "Bird" (or any of its "underground press" siblings) should be allowed breathing space to exist, for the health of all society. Should not the "Bird" be permitted to editorialize on the ills of our times, to publish its views for the benefit of anyone who desires such edification, and, hopefully, to mature into a responsible, healthfully competitive Atlanta newspaper? The "Bird" is a young publication in terms of both its age and the age of its average contributor. Stylistically, this adolescence is reflected on every page. Yet if this paper, or any one of its articles, appeals to the prurient interest of any reader at Scott or even the average reader in the world at large, then that reader must have experienced a very narrow, boring existence. 1 do not agree with all of the views of the "Bird" staff or how their views are stated or overstated, but we must all concur in their right of expression and our right to hear their outcry. If the harassment of Milton, Swift, and Pasternak stand as examples of the dangers inherent in State suppression of political expression; if "Madame Bovary," "Ulysses" and even "Memoirs of a Lady of Pleasure" (better known as Fanny Hill) survived against attempted censorship of literary efforts to describe social mores and sensuality; the "The Great Speckled Bird," with its concoction of both strains of commentary, should be assisted in its efforts to take flight. The "Bird" has not been judicially declared obscene. Its editors and distributors have not been arrested or indicted or enjoined from continuing their activities. I would urge you to obtain the facts concerning the current legal battle and to present them to the campus. 1 would certainly hope that any student out there is as sufficiently competent to judge for herself the merits of the "Bird" as is DeKalb Solicitor Bill. No more important single issue will probably erupt during your lives on that campus than any of those which are involved in the threatened silencing of this publication. Fach should consider the admonition of Mr. Justice Holmes: "as life is action and passion, it is required of a man that he should share the passion and action of his time at the peril of being judged not to have lived." Sincerely yours, Lucy Schow Forrester, k 62 Byers reports error To the Editor: I wish to report an error in the November 22, 1969 issue of the PROFILE. You state "...Mary Lou Romaine, '70, was called away from her student aid job in the library to see Dean of Students Carrie Scandrett." I wish to state that Mary Lou was in the library but she does not have a student aid job in the library. Sincerely, Edna H. Byers, Librarian Traylor corrects 'Bird 1 story; defends freedom of speech To the Editor: Your article in the PROFILE, the November 22 issue regarding the "banning" of the newspaper, "The Great Speckled Bird," is based on several erroneous facts. There is not now, and never has been any restraining order of any kind on file in court against this newspaper. The only legal action of any kind involving "The Great Speckled Bird" is a case brought by the newspaper itself in the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division, asking relief from harassment by the Fulton County sherif, the Fulton County solicitor, the DeKalb County sheriff and the DeKalb County solicitor, cause number 1 223 1 . This suit asked for, among other things, a temporary restraining order against these public officials pending trial of the case. This request was heard in Federal District Court on Monday, November 18 (not Tuesday as your article erroneously reported.) Copies of the pleadings and briefs filed in this case are a vailable to the public, as area all American court proceedings. No temporary restraining order against the public officials was granted, because it was not shown that any one's life was endangered or any great property loss was imminent. But the court did indicate to counsel that should any further harassment occur, before the case comes to trial on the issues, that the court might change its Monday decision and grant the restraining order AGAINST THE PUBLIC OFFICIALS. The case is now in the process of being set down for trail before a panel of three federal judges, as is customary, and will be tried in the next few weeks. There is no restraining order against anyone at this point. Our basic American freedom of innocence until proven guilty in a court of law is grounded in the Christian admonition against bearing false witness. It behooves us as citizens, who have been given the great gift of intellect and the priceless privilege of education to ascertain the true facts before we judge any situation. I disagree too, but I expect to retain for myself my choice of reading matter. I feel very strongly that the banning or suppression of any expression of free speech is a very dangerous precedent to begin in America, no matter what the reason offered to justify it. Such a sensitive situation as this one is to fundamental America freedoms demands, at the very least, accurate press reporting. The PROFILE has a great obligation to keep Agnes Scott students accurately informed. I regret this aberration. Yours very truly, Martha Traylor, Visiting assistant professor of political science Editor s note: We too regret (his aberration and agree with Mrs. Traylor that the PROFILE has an obligation to keep Agnes Scott students accurately informed. At the time of the printing of this article, we thought we were keeping the student body accurately informed and we do appreciate Mrs. Traylor\s correction of our information Concerning the misinformation about a court restraining order issued against the November 1 1 edition of "The Great Speckled Bird," we received this information from President of the College Wallace M. Alston and did not think of questioning it, although we should have perhaps checked primary sources. Since the printing of the article, both Dr. Alston and College Business Manager P. J. Rogers have received accurate information from the office of the DeKalb County Sheriff DECEMBER 6. 1968 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 6000! Our parents keep reminding us that our college years make up "some of the best days of your life." In keeping with this idea, Ann Abernethy and I decided to fill one of these glorious days with fun and frivolity. As we returned to Atlanta from Greer, S.C., on Friday, November 29, down Highway 1-85, we took a Truck-Drivers Friendliness Survey. In other words, I drove and Ann waved. The point system consisted of: one point for waving; two for blinking lights; three for honkmg horn; four for come hither hand motion; and ten for the whole works with much enthusiasm. One extra point was earned by ( 1) honking before prompting, (2) extra long honk or (3) congeniality, which included a smile and/or wave with two hands. Two extra points were given for the nebulous accolade of all-around courtesy. We are happy to report that two flatbed trucks carrying some kind of steel spiky frames came in first with a total of 19 points. Second place was earned by one lone transfer truck who shall remain nameless with a total of ten points. Fifteen transfer trucks were surveyed as well as three smaller fry who were friendly in spite of their size. Among the holiday hitchhikers, were two especially memorable young men. One smiled and waved while the other made an obscene sign with the middle finger of his right hand. All in all, we found it to be a quite successful survey except that there seemed to be more trucks on the other side of the highway than on ours This leads me to the main discovery of the Abernethy-Farley Truck-Drivers Friendliness Survey: The trucks are always thicker on the other side of the median.

Certainly the theme of lesbianism has not been seen before on an Agnes Scott stage. This theme is not worth much comment, except to say that the actresses did not seem squeamish or embarrassed by their roles. The theme was treated matter-of-factly by audience and cast alike. Another first was apparent at the opening of the curtain on the setting of the play. This play was the first time a proscenium-type setting, which virtually re-creates a room, had been used on the thrust stage of Dana. The sets themselves were in keeping with the play and apparently pleased the audience when it broke into applause on opening night for the Act II set. The re-creation of Mrs. Tilford's elegant, blue Georgian living room was quite sucessful They Junior, was well cast physically for the role of Martha Dobie, the rather masculine half of the school teaching team. In a role which could easily be overplayed, Mollie appeared a bit too dramatic as the young teacher who eventually realizes her homosexual tendencies. Patricia Johnston as Karen Wright, was the second teacher who loses her fiance through the scandal which surrounds her relationship with Martha. Patricia was able to maintain both her bv SANDRA EARLLY control over a part which could have become hysterical and also keep a refreshing variety in her performance. Agnes Scott students came across quite convincingly as children. Interesting and often comic performances were given by Vicki Hutchison, Charlotte C oats and Hope Gazes.

On November 18 Agnes Scott played volleyball against Columbus College and DeKalb Junior College at DeKalb. Scott defeated both schools in a two-out-of-three match. AT THE FINAL MEETING of Representative Council for the fall quarter, Tina Brownley announced the R.C.'s that had been approved by the Administrative Committee. Of primary importance was the news that going into effect at the beginning of winter quarter is a new drinking policy. "The keynote of this policy," said TinaBrownley, "is resumption of normal responsibility on return to the campus." The three aspects of the policy that will be subject to strict judicial action are resumption of normal responsibility on return to the campus, maintaining high standards of conduct and no alcoholic beverages on campus. This new procedure will be explained in full on January 6. The administrative committee also accepted the abolishment of the 10:30 phone rule and a resolution concerning unlimited social engagements for sophomores. The chaperonage policy must be reworded, but will go to the committee before the end of the quarter. Tina Brownley installed Lee Ann Peterson and Susan Borcuk as freshman representatives to Rep Council.

Whittemore, assistant professor of sociology and director of research for the Fulton County Mental Health Department, the students are taking a survey, or a one per cent random sample, of households in specific areas designated by the mental health department. The survey is an attempt to ascertain the needs of the community and apply help where needed. The project also serves to involve students from Agnes Scott, Atlanta University School of Social Work, Georgia State College and Piedmont School of Nursing in a meaningful research project. Fulton County is divided into four catchment areas. Students from Agnes Scott will survey approximately 100 of 600 families. The interviews will be made primarily in the central area along the DeKalb County line. The areas in which the sample will be taken include the Buckhead area northward. College Park and a large part of the Negro area in Atlanta. It is hoped that through this survey the mental health department will be able to apply primary preventive measures such as job placement, schools and workers for specific areas. The balance of interviews not completed by college students will be done by volunteers of the Metropolitan Atlanta Mental Health Association.

Hints on self-defense given by local police by KATHY FRIEZE A self-defense program sponsored by Athletic Association was presented on January 7 by Lieutenant Bazemore of the DeKalb Police Department . The program was developed to alleviate the task of the police force and to place more responsibility on the individual citizen. Many tragic incidents which require the attention of the police can be avoided through common sense and the correct precautions. Lieutenant Bazemore made several suggestions for avoiding possible attacks: Park as close to a light as possible when you know that vou will have to return to your car after dark. When returning to your car always have your car keys in your hand, not in your purse. Check the backseat before getting into the car. If you are driving on a city street and you think that someone is following you, drive into an open service station and call the police-do not keep driving! If you are driving along a rural road and you think that someone is following you, pull into the driveway of the first farmhouse and blow vour horn. If you are stopped at a redlight and someone tries to jump into the car with you: ( 1 ) run into the back of the car in front of you, or (2) run through the red light. If you have car trouble on a highway, raise your hood or tie a piece of cloth to your antenna. Then get back in the car and stay Women are quite capable or defending themselves from an attacker. There are a few important things to remember. Try to put all your force behind one blow; kick him in the groin, elbow him in the nos, Kick him on the shin or stamp on the instep of his foot. Try to turn towards your attacker-it is more difficult for him to cover your mouth and you can use your fingernails to scratch at his eyes. Scream ! The DeKalb County Police Department, through Atletic Association, is selling tear gas pellet guns for personal defense. They cost $7 and discharge seven pellets. Guaranteed by the police department, they are not on sale on the commercial market and can only be bought through the police department. Orders for the gun should be made to Box 334. JANUARY 17, 1969 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 Atlanta support is three months old by LINDA LANEY and JANICE JOHNSTON The influence of the grape strike is being felt in Atlanta. In October, housewives, professional persons, union workers, teachers and students interested in the grape strike formed the Atlanta Support Committee and began picketing supermarkets and distributing leaflets on weekends. Later the Concerned Clergy, made up about 50 priests, ministers and rabbis in the Atlanta area, added their support and began discussions with the major chain stores. Just recently the district headquarters of five majorAtlanta chain food stores apparently have agreed to stop buying California grapes. College campuses which were early areas of support for the Delano strike, are a major target for the workers. Students across the nation are involved in the United Farm Workers' strike for reasons such as racism, poverty relevance of the church and social justice Students in several colleges in the Atlanta area have shown great interest and concern in the plight of the grape pickers. In October, several Agnes Scott students along with other students picketed supermarkets in Decatur and elsewhere and encouraged shoppers to comply with the boycott of table grapes. On Wednesday, January 15, 1969, the Tech Action Committee of Georgia Tech, promoted a "Grape Debate" in which two representatives of the Atlanta Grape Boycott Committee tackled the issues with two representatives of the John Birch Society. Chavez-led grape strike has religio -civil rights tone by LINDA LANEY ^and JANICE JOHNSTON The strike by California farm workers, which began in 1965 and has spread into a nationwide grape boycott, is a momentous step in the attempt to bring about fair working conditions for the California grape workers. For generations, the oppressive poverty of the nation's 1.8 million regular farm workers has forced them to lead lives geared, not to advancement, but to survival. The .average pay for farm workers was $1.23 per hour last year and those who worked 150 days or more in 1965 averaged $2,300 for all employment. However, this sum would seem like relative affluence for the migrant workers among the farm workers; these migrant workers are generally unprotected by unemployment insurance or Robert Kennedy: "The world must know that the migrant farm worker, the Mexican-American, is coming into his own right. " workman's compensation. Futhermore,it was only in February, 1967, that they were covered by the federal minimum wage of $ 1 per hour. Those promoting unionization of the workers see it as the best means by which to ease their poverty. It is the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee which is trying to change things for the California migrant. Through the National Labor Relations Act of the 1930's, American's workers won the right to organize and bargain collectively, but in 1968, the farm workers still remined excluded from this act. To overcome this handicap and win the benefits enjoyed by other workers, the farm workers of Delano, Calif., voted to go on strike for union recognition three years and eleven months ago. THE WORKERS SAY they are seeking four things with the strike: (1) a minimum hourly wage at all times of the year, (2) sanitary working conditions, (3) a seniority system to protect workers of long-standing,and (4) an end to harassment through the appointment of stewards who would represent any worker who felt he had been treated unfairly. In the past, attempts have been made to unionize California farm workers, but all of them have failed. Susan Mees, '72: "A straight shot of rum." Charlene Kruizenga, '71: "Go to Michigan and freeze it in 30 degree weather." Joanna Reed, '69: "My maid's mother's remedy is to buy pig's feet. Chop them up and boil them in water to get "tea". Then put a little brandy in it and a little real tea. That gives you your remedy." What's your favorite remedy for the flu? Scottie Speaks Minnie Bob Mothes, '69: "My favorite flu remedy is a fifth of scotch." Laura Reeves, '72: "Fd stay in bed 'til March. It does away with winter quarter blues." Ellen Willingham, '71: vacation-it does wonders." Edith Jennings, '71: "Cough in the direction of China and send it back." Boo Godfrey, '71: "Take a drink and go to bed." Caroline Mitchell, '70: "Hang yourself." Jan Roush, '71: "Turn around and go home." This time, however, under the leadership of Cesar Chavez, director of the United Farm Workers, farm workers have succeeded in winning collective bargaining agreements for the first time in history. When Chavez began to work among the Mexican-American grape pickers in 1962, he was aware that the struggle was not yet viable as a conventional labor effort. Thus he turned it into a religio-civil-rights cru^de enlisting wide-spread church support on the "moruPissue of human dignity. A master organizer, he: then involved the weapon of the boycott against ' two national corporations. THIS PAST SEPTEMBER-- Hie pea! ot the grape harvest-an effort was made to: put additional pressure on growers and to win nationwide suo^ojt, for the strike. The UFW devoted most of its lime ihis fall to enlarging and publicizing a nationwide boycott of table grapes by supermarkets, individuals, and compainies. Chavez and the strike have receive support from such people as Eugene McCarthy, Hubert Humphrey and the late Robert F. Kennedy. Kennedy marched in procession with workers in an open air mass on March 10, 1968. While there, he said, "The world must know that the migrant farm worker, the Mexican American, is coming into his own right. The boycott, begun in earnest in 1967, has had some effect on the market. Sales in California are down 20 per cent and grape markets in Boston New York, Chicago and Detroit are being shut down. Growers have begun routing grapes to cities where the boycott has been least effective. A SUCCESSFUL STRIKE could change the status of farm labor well beyond the California boundaries. Once the pickers are organized, the way will be open to unionizing all of California's 300,000 harvest hands and others across the nation. But the strike is now in its 47th month and the workers are still out. Although some progress has been made, the goal of total union recognitions is still far in the future. According to Chavez, what is really needed is legislation to give collective bargaining to farm workers. Otherwise, he says, "It's going to be one death struggle after another. The growers are going to hold out to the very end."

Two opposing positions immediately grow up from a comparative price study among three nearby stores selling cosmetic items. First is the one to expend a little energy and save some money. Second is the idea that the location, store hours, check cashing policy and charge accounts are worth the extra cost. On many occasions, however, the student shopper is not able to make this choice. She is compelled through necessity and time to buy at the closer, more expensive store. Moreover, she probably takes most of her drug and prescription business which the infirmary does not handle to this store. Perhaps a student discount plan could benefit both the store and the student. The student could save money and shoe leather while the store could receive more of the student's business and would not have to lower its prices generally. Another alternative to higher cost or the longer walk is a distributer on campus. The bookstore could put in a shelf of emergency cosmetic items, or some enterprising student could become an Avon lady, for example. In either case, the line would be limited and items possibly as expensive, but at least, we would be spending money on campus or with one of our own ranks. As a student moves from freshman to senior year, she is likely to grow poorer and poorer. This increasing pinch on the older student is very real and sad, especially if she was already poor as a freshman. Might we suggest that student services committee again negotiate with nearby stores for a student discount? If this cannot be achieved, perhaps more drastic measures are in order. Boycotts, anyone? Upward from here Clear the Air, Bury the Hatchet, Start All over Again- trite, but maybe the best way to express feelings concisely so no one will misunderstand, Perhaps reflection on last quarter can help determine a plan for this quarter. Some degree of controversy raged over the PROFILE during fall quarter and it is likely that some students will again be unhappy with the paper in winter quarter. They are certainly welcome to their opinions, but hopefully, they think highly enough of the paper and their own ideas to express them constructively and responsibly to the PROFILE staff. Then it is the responsibility of those of us on the staff to listen to these suggestions,evaluate them and, if workable, effect them All of us have a quarter's experience behind us now. Many of our theories and ideas have been tested practically. In trying them out, we have moved horizonally and linearly; let us hope in the new quarter, we can move vertically- upward from here. The PROFILE has a sincere committment to the improvement of itself and the college. The paper is better itself, I believe, through the new layout and through more interpretive writing by the staff. To improve the college, we try to present a broader vision of the college in relation to the world at large, to criticize, when necessary, events and institutions, and to inject humor into the everyday life of the college. The last is not the least of the methods. Sensationalism, in spite of what many may think, is not the primary goal of the PROFILE. Aritcles are not assigned and written or themes and campaigns planned without thought and purpose. Nevertheless, we, like everbody else, make errors in judgment. On occasion, however, these errors are not as great in intensity as some judge them. Many readers will not find the PROFILE changed at all this quarter; indeed, it may not be. However, we are working from a positive not destructive view of ourselves and the college. Moreover, we sincerely hope we Have Learned By Our Mistakes (to fall again, into triteness.) Earley And so the final fall quarter issue of the PROFILE was stolen the night before it was to be distributed to students. After nearly a day and a half of flap and anguish, the papers were recovered on Saturday morning in the Prayer Room spread out on what would be the altar if the Prayer Room had a formal one. Stealing the papers was certainly a destructive way of showing disapproval of the PROFILE when suggestions or even good ole hard work on the paper itself might have been a better way. But, nevertheless, the culprits in accomplishing the theft and return of the victim had a rather neat twist on their caper. The final sentence of my editorial in that ill-fated issue was used cleverly to justify the dastardly deed. The scamps also managed to identify me with Lucy Van Pelt of the Peanuts cartoon. I find this somewhat amusing since I've always rather admired her in a negative, odd way. So, reproduced below for all to enjoy are the notes I received from my sticky-fingered friends.

Extra hands needed in national flush-in To the Editor: The Students for Violent Non-Action (SVNA) is planning a massive demonstration in protest of the existence of the new administration. On January 20, 1969, as Nixon says the last word of the inaugural oath (" help me God."), we plan to haveeverytoilet in the country flushed. We realize of course we may not be able to reach every toilet, but we hope that, with the cooperation of organizations such as yours, we shall be able to reach a large majority of them. We are attempting to enlist the aid of students at every college and university in the nation as well as anyone else who wishes to join. The protest will require a high degree of organizational effort as we hope to flush the toilets not only of the dorms, apartments and lecture halls in and around the campuses, but also downtown hotels, restaurants, railroad stations and high schools, private homes, etc. With your help in promoting this project, "Flush for Freedom" will be a success.

Recent drinking NIXON'S the ONE for cooperaTION To the Editor: Nixon can bring us together by making cooperation the policy of the land. In such sensitive areas of human relations as differing age, religeon(sic), race and nationalism, cooperation is the approach that leads to accord. Cooperation does not even suggest complete agreement or identical views but readily accepts the fact of differences, preferences and seperatisms (sic), that each might pursue his own happiness while working together to realize the good life for all in a relatively tranquil state. The nonsense that we must conglomerate all "society" and all government into conformity and likeness has brought on the suspicions and turmoil that afflicts us. Let us move upward to cooperation, for cooperation is proper love for all mankind put to work. I . J. Campbell policy changes engineered by various student committees and the Committee on the Problem are a real breakthrough in getting Agnes Scott's social rules more consistent with the realities of collegiate social life in the Atlanta area. Undoubtedly, the apartment policy is also soon in for reconsideration. To those involved in such reconsideration, I would like to recommend the book, "Sex and the New Morality," by Frederic C. Wood Jr., Fpiscopal minister, chaplain and associate professor of religion at Vassar College. I would also like to suggest Mr. Wood be considered as a possible guest speaker for Religious F. mphasis Week in 1970 - or at any time he might be available. Having read his book and heard him speak on the Today Show, I'm sure he would provide morally and intellectually stimulating fare for Agnes Scott community. Sincerely, P. B. Reinhart, Assistant professor of physics JANUARY 17, 1969 THE PROFILE PACE 5 NSA, ACLU oppose 'inhumane' drug laws WASHINGTON (CPS)-- When a young man is sentenced to 20 years in prison for selling an ounce of marijuana, a drug called by top researchers a "relatively mild intoxicant/' and yet the use of marijuana is growing and spreading form coffee houses to fraternity houses, what has happened? The National Student Association (NSA) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have decided that what has happened is that penalties regulating marijuana in America are totally out of proportion with the nature of the drug and the people who use it Both organizations recently announced that they plan to work this year for changes in the laws surrounding use and possession of marijuana, and for an end to what NSA calls society's "hypocrisy and inhumanity toward its children." NSA officials, citing the results of a three-year study of drugs and .their effect on students, have announced that NSA will begin "Campaigns to place on the ballot by 1970 various schemes for marijuana regiilation-from legal sales in stores (like alcohol) to reduction of criminal penalties." At the same time, ACLU has urged removal of criminal penalties for use and possession of marijuana (which are now felonies punishable by up to 40 years in prison in some states), and said it will take on selected cases of individuals charged with these offenses. Charles Hollander, who has headed NSA's Drug Studies Program since 1965, said the number of students arrested for drug charges across the country in 1968 has risen 800 per cent over 1 967 for the same September-November period. Sixteen thousand students were arrested during the ten weeks after school started last fall, Hollander said. "The issue of drugs," according to NSA President Bob Powell, "has plunged the campus into one of its worst internal crises, and has driven another wedge between a large and growing number of students, and their elders. "Intensifying the situation are the two-and three-year sentences that are frequently handed out in the name of "exemplary" law enforcement, and the deep fear, suspicion and mistrust generated on our campuses by the flood of disguised and often university-sanctioned narcotic agents." Students are also profoundly disturbed, Powell said, by the political overtones of law enforcement in many college communities. He cited the "pre-dawn, military-style raids" at Bard College, Franconia College, American University and the State University of New York at Stony Brook, which seriously disrupted those campuses. A recent survey of high school students in Michigan concluded in part that "marijuana smokers seem more likely than non-smokers to participate in political activity and become involved in social change." Such evidence, the NSA report hinted, might lead academic officials and police to conclude that they can strike a blow against campus political activity by using the issue of drugs. While working to get existing marijuana laws changed through popular ballot in various states, Powell said, NSA will also: --attack in court the constitutionality of current marijuana statutes. The Association has already successfully petitioned the Supreme Court as an "amicus curiae" (friend of the court, who is allowed to file briefs the judges will consider in their decision) in the Timothy Leary case, and expects to do so in other cases; -publicize and distribute a maximum amount of information on drugs: -provide arrested students as much information as possible on their legal rights. Both NSA and the ACLU blasted federal law enforcement officials who punish young people "in cruel and inhuman ways" for use of a mild intoxicant while "organized crime operates this multi-billion-dollar business with almost total immunity." Hollander urged "the hundreds of thousands of families who have been hurt by this condition" to work for repeal or liberalization of current marijuana laws independently or through their congressmen. "We must work together," he said, "to put the issue on the ballot by 1970." Counter -inaugural ball part of peaceful protest College Press Service WASHINGTON (CPS) - The National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam is planning a peaceful protest against the inauguration of Richard Milhous Nixon. Rennie Davis, Mobe coordinator, says federal and city officials sincerely want to avoid "another Chicago," and will allow the "counter-inauguration" to be held the weekend of the "real" one. THE PROTEST'S PURPOSE is to "disrupt the inauguration's political message of national unity by exposing Nixon's papier-mache consensus," but not to physically interfere with the event itself, Davis said. "Violence, which we do not want, would not serve the government's purposes either," said Davis. "I should think the last thing Nixon wants on the day he's inaugurated would be another Chicago." Paul Potter, another Mobe leader, said the "gravity" of the Vietnam war has made it necessary to break the tradition of inaugurations as celebrations of national unity. Davis expects the counter-inauguration to be the "most critical" anti-war demonstration yet but could give no estimate of the expected turnout. He said response from the campuses has been particularly good, and cited support from 150 peace organizations. THE STUDENTS FOR A DEMOCRATIC Society, usually the most active and militant group in demonstrations, voted in its National Council meeting during Christmas vacation not to participate in the demonstration on a formal basis; but the Mobe expects many SDS students in Washington on an individual basis. Activities will begin Saturday, Jan. 18, with conferences and workshops designed to activate people new to the antiwar movement. The meetings are scheduled to be held at Hawthorne School in Southwest Washington. Federal City College, the city's new college with a majority of black students where the meetings were originally scheduled, withdrew permission after the studert government expressed disfavor with the protest. A brief rally is planned at the Ellipse near the White House the next day (Jan. 19), followed by a march led by G.I.s along the inaugural route. Exact details of all events are subject to the approval of federal and D.C. officials. A decision was expected on Monday Jan. 13. SUNDAY NIGHT, a counter-inaugural ball with entertainment is planned, Judy Collins, Phil Ochs and the Fugs will appear. Yippies plan guerrilla theatre; one report has it that they will be in town handing identical facsimiles of Inaugural Ball tickets to people on the street "for those who are into real guerrilla theatre."

Ceremony, Mo he intends to "totally dominate" the pamde route, aeeording to Davis. Peace pennants will he available, and protesters have been encouraged to bring banners and signs. "We want to be sure Nixon knows there is an anti-war movement in this country," said Potter. Davis says people sympathetic to the antiwar movement will also make their feelings known at official inaugural functions. "There are even people with $25 box seats (for the parade) who will hold peace pennants/' For the counter-inaugural parade, a reviewing stand with barbed wire and barricades will be set up. President-elect Nixon and his Cabinet w ill be invited to use it. Potter considers the "real" inaugural, with its elite in fancy dress amid pomp and circumstance, is "hardly a cross-section of who this nation is." The counter-inauguration on the other hand, will "point to the vitality of the protest movement" and will be a better indication of the nation," he said. SDS woos new popular support by DAVID GLAZIER CPS - Student Organization News (CPS)-Students for a Democratic Society leaders at a recent National Council meeting in Ann Arbor, were divided over the value of a public demonstration-at Richard Nixon's inauguration later this month. Those in favor claimed participating in the demonstration would gain national attention for the organization and would point up the continuing illegitimacy of America's leaders. Those opposed believed it is senseless and, even worse, antagonistic to the class of people SDS wishes to attract to its cause. Those for abstinence won out; SDS as an organization will not support the inauguration protest, although members are free to attend and participate.; WHICH BRINGS THE ARGUMENT around to a question of direction. SDS wants to extend its activism to the working classes, the poor, high school students adn the U.S. Army. Programs for such an undertaking have not yet been formulated, although members indicated they would use methods involving direct contact. This means SDS would drop its opposition to the draft and, once its members were in uniform, would undermine the military structure from within. The suggestion was not warmly received at the convention, perhaps because the penalties meted out for this kind of activism would e so severe. High school students and poor people might respond favorably to SDS, since the former are experiencing growing dissatisfaction with the system and the schools themselves are ripe for revolution. SDS already has a foothold in some New York and California high schools. Poverty groups discouraged with chaotic and inadequate welfare programs, have already been organizing and demonstrating for several years. ^ THE WORKING CLASS, an integral part of SDS slogans, could prove a harder nut to crack. Except for marginal workers in agriculture and other poor-paying light industries, organized American labor is married to the Establish ment. Underlying the idea of moving off campus is the feeling among SDS people that the organization's growth was slowed down by President Johnson's peace moves. With the war in Vietnam apparently headed for some kind of solution, SDS wants to insure its future by attaching itself to a class in order to take root as a permanent political and social movement. It is an implied acceptance of revolutionary belief that students are transients within the class structure who can provide leadership for the oppressed. But does it mean the task of changing the university will fall into the hands of lesser radicals? PAGE 6 THE PROFILE JANUARY 17. 1969 Minister justifies new sexual code by KAY PARKERSON Associate Editor vt Sex and the New Morality," by Frederic C. Wood Jr. Association Press. $2.25. Coinciding with the central theme of Religious Emphasis Week, "Revolution or Reconciliation", is a book by Frederick C. Wood, entitled "Sex and the New Morality/' Mr. Wood, an Episcopalian minister and chaplain at Vassar college, understandably directs his writing towards college students. But the scope of his writing invites universal acceptance and application. The book's title, of course, at once summons up visions of loose living and other accompanying misconceptions of what the new morality really is. As often popularly expressed, the new morality is neither new nor moral However, Wood definately disagrees with this and proceeds to set forth his views. He feels that sexuality is the basis of each human being. Sexuality not just in the narrow sense related to the body and its reproductive processes, but as the basis for every bodily emotion and action. This also includes all interaction between people. Immorality in Wood'sopinion is any thing which exploits this concept of sexuality. The exploitation of sexuality and dehumanization of the person go together and are equally condemned. Instead "Love is the assumed norm for all morality." This morality comes down to a simple concept. Love motivated action is moral; that action which exploits or dehumanizes another is not moral. The new morality, Wood feels, should not be a set of rules replacing the hard and fast ones of the "old Morality." Rather the new morality is different for each person, being personally interpreted for each situation in the light of Love. The author uses his theological background to affirm this view and explain it. He in turn applies it to such questions as today's overemphasis on sex, the double standard, the relevance of virginity and race and violence in relation to sex. Pre-marital intercourse, abortion, homosexuality, and marriage are also treated by the author. His commonsense judgement and good advice do much to play down the revolutionary aspect of this views. He believes and ably supports the viewpoint that any action, be it pre-marital sex, sex within marriage, or whatever, can be either moral or immoral according to the individual relationship and its context. This book is well-written, well grounded in theology and extremely interesting. Wood often uses experiences from his pastoral work to illustrate his views. Usually dealing with college students, the examples quite often strike close to home and force one to re-examine one's own relationships with others. This book should be required reading especially for college students. It does not seek to destroy old standards; rather it butresses their reason for being with new logic. Strangely enough, Wood does not establish a new morality; he establishes rather a more relevant and more meaningful version of the one we've lived with all our life. SDS chapter wins turkey foot race LEXINGTON, Ky. (CPS) - Although they're trying to rationalize it by saying they're "keeping fit for the revolution," the members of the University of Kentucky's SDS Chapter are in line for the dubious distinction of being the only SDSer's in the country to over-emphasize athletics. hi the annual UK Turkey Run before Christmas - a mile-and-a-half cross-country jog usually dominated and trained extensively for by the Greek organizations - SDS carried off all the honors, winning two turkeys in the process. One SDS member, a former high school track star, finished far ahead of the field over 100 entrants winning one bird, while other SDSer's ( including one who tied for second) finished well to give SDS the team trophy and another turkey. They later shared the turkeys at a large feast. Asked about the demise of the Greeks in this year's race, one SDS member said. ' It just goes to show you that beer is bad for you." Wolfe book becomes long, sustained psychedelic dream by ELIZABETH MATHES Copy Editor "The Electric Kool-aid Acid Test," by Tom Wolfe. Farrar, Straus and Girous. $5.95. The main value Tom Wolfe's "Electric Kool-aid Acid Test" has for the so-called "straight" audience is as a chronicle of and a glimpse into the world of psychedelia-both the movement towards use of mind-expanding drugs and the life style and paraphernalia that accompanied it. The book gives a detailed account of the life of a group of young people who came to be known as the Merry Pranksters. The focal point of the book is Ken Kesey, author of " One Flew Over the Cockoo's Nest' and the charismatic leader of the Pranksters. Wolfe narrates Kesey's introduction to drugs as a human guinea pig in psychiatric research, his realization of a new sensory experience and the formation of the Merry Pranksters. He also depicts the Pranksters' bus trip from California to New York and back, their escape from arrests into Mexico and return, and Kesey's ultimate return to rural life. One of the most interesting episodes is the arrival of the Pranksters at Millbrook, the home of Leary's League for Spirtual Discovery, and their subsequent disenchantment with Leary's intellectual and mystical approach. The Pranksters' main concern is to live completely, to do you own thing, and it is impossible to ignore the fact that Kesey's Acid Tests and Trip Festival were the primary influence on the Haight-Ashbury movement. The best summation of the contents and impact of "Acid Test" probably can be said to be the title itself. The total sensory experience that Kesey pioneered and put into action first on the bus trip and later in the Acid Tests was electric. It gave the participant a charge. The audiovisual approach to doing one's own thing was in a sense a complete immersion into the fragmentation of time, space and being. One became a part of huge melding of disassociated parts-free associating, "rapping off" both the internal and 6' 2" graduate student, well-traveled, firm background in languages humanities % science, new to Atlanta, wishes to establish rapport with Agnes Scott upperclass- women.

Kesey trips were all sensation and experience. At the same time the reader cannot ignore the camp approach of Kesey's movement. The very name, Merry Pranksters, of his group, as well as the "antics" and mood of the bus trip, creates a somewhat juvenile frame of reference and an air of sophisticated, and therefore false, naivete an attempt to regain the Kool-aid days of life using LSD Kool-aid. This element of artful simplicity is perhaps the most irritating part of the entire Kesey world. An objection to it or to the aims of "mind-expanding" lead one into a circular argument over the fact that the ability to define innocence seems to presuppose the loss of it. Kesey's Kool-aid is electric and therefore artficial in its origin and its effect The Acid Test mentioned in the title refers, of course, to the use of LSD and other drugs, but the reader comes to see the acid test as a true challenge to the Kesey Follower's ability to submerge himself in the group, while maintaining a hold on his individual entitly. The book itself is the acid test for the dilettante hippie. The only reason for the existence of "Acid Tesf'must be its valiant attempt to illuminate the background of current youth movements. Outside of the presentation of Kesey as a pioneer and hero, there is little development of character. Indeed, most of the characters, Mountain Girl, Sandy, Babbs, Gretchen Fetchin, are seen only as they relate either to Kesey, a psychedelic experience or the great move that unified the group. Wolfe attempts to present a sympathetic picture of Kesey at least; yet it is evident that he is somewhat repelled by the self-engendered squalor in which the movement existed. Incidents were related in vivid language anu entire book attempts to give the reader the feeling of one long continuous hallucination, which appears to have been the actual state of the Pranksters. Nonetheless, the episodic style, the useless repetition and the inordinate use of fourletter words led this reader to the conclusion that nothing would be lost by the person who did not read this book. "The Flectric Kool-aid Acid Test" is tedious beyond words to the very extent that Wolfe felt he had to go beyond words to describe a new milieu. WINKLER Gulf Service 102 W.

The movie revolves around the theme of roses which is symbol of thoughtfulness, love and consideration lacking in the family relationship.

In various flashbacks the viewer is given glimpses of the past which add up and result in an understanding of (he present situation. 1 he revealing factors are usually presented indirectly in recollections, incidences and exchanging glances.

Throughout the movie this height of tension is maintained and an explosion is expected at any minute. An explosion finally does come when the mother (Patricia Neal) throws the vase of roses to the floor. The tension is alleviated and made bearable through the snide, but humorous remarks of the Irish father. For example, when he feels a bond between his son and wife against him, he remarks on his wife's praise of Tim my. He says, "If he came in and said he was a fly, you'd help him out the window. " This gruff and brazen Irishman keeps the movie lively in the midst of the intense emotions. As the movie progresses a mutual respect and love is uncovered. Through Timmy's questioning of his parents and how they met the viewer sees the love, now almostlost, rekindled. The movie was touching and realistic with enough humor to make it enjoyable.

In the space of 85 minutes "Yellow Submarine" manages to make all other animated cartooning look like pre-Disney, and illustrates a kind of stoned-out creativity that no amount of TV copy- catting could ever duplicate. Add to this some of the group's best music, a storm of outrageous puns and one-liners of the sort that enderared "A Hard Day's Night " and "Help!" to critics, and a sure-fire', honest-to -God classic emerges. The film may well find its final resting place in the collection of Museum of Modern Art's Film Library, though Lennon would blanch at the idea. The thing that will get you right off is that crazy drawing. The seenery designed by Heina Edelmann has that quality of early daguerrotype enhanced by the brush of a Paul Klee--time and space are telescoped and blown out and the are-work seems to preceed along several planes at once. Reading the paperback based on the movie gives no sense at all of the depth achieved by the dozens of artists who contributed to the film. Things are used liberally in and with the animation; in the Beatles' house (called the "Pier") dozens of doors are opened, loosing floods of objects, art, props and crap. Another arresting technique is punching holes in the cartoon track and filling the spaces with clips of regular movie film; the effect is used to good advantage during the song "Eleanor Rigby John , Paul, Ringo and George are pure caricature, but they bear no resemblance to the way they appear on Saturday morning television. Tall, lean and colorful, they ooze through the film with the ease of fluidity of musical tones and with the same Fin-a-household-word suavity of the real four. They deliver some really awful plays on words without a shiver and complete their plays without ever descending to low comedy-cleaving that to the other members of the "cast." It all comes off as mid-self-satire, which saves them from Monkees-like buffoonery. As usual, Ringo plays foil to the other three, Lennon lays down most of the patter, while Paul and George concentrate on the music. "Liverpool can be a lonely place on Saturday night-and it's only Thursday morning," reflects a morose Ringo, just color-hating invaders. The five of them set out on the return trip, passing thourgh the troubled waters of the Seas of Science, Time, Monsters, and Holes, respectively They stop to pick up Jeremy the Boob, a Nowhere Man who writes his own novels simultaneously and claims to hold degrees in every field there is. Their reception on arrival is quiet, because all of Pepperland's fashion-plate people have been bleached of color and left paralyzed by the Meanie attack. Of course, the Beatles drive the blue barbarians out with sleight-of-hand, impersonation, music and a lot of love, and ending is properly happy. Even the Chief Blue Meanie repents of his war crimes and joins in the singing. This is almost the end of the film- splashy, rainbowtinted and joyous-except for a brief clip in which the real Beatles appear to advise the audience that more Meanies have been sighted in the area, and that everyone had better leave the theatre singing. YELLOW SUBMARINE before he notices the garishly colored submersible that is following him through the streets. The craft is manned by old Fred, bandleader and recently appointed Admiral of the navy of Pepperland. He had come for help in freeing Pepperland from the domination of the Blue Meanies, a group of music-and Blue Meanies, the Beatles assure us, are everywhere-those who hate music and love and color And, as if to show that even such a light-hearted epic as "Yellow Submarine" makes its point, we have it on the best authority that in San Francisco kids have switched from calling cops "pigs" to calling them-you guessed it...

SEVERAL REPORTS on committee work for the coming quarter were presented at the January 7 meeting of Representative Council. Reorganization Committee with Tina Bender as Chairman, will be considering resolutions concerning election procedure. Rules Committee under the chairmanship of Patsy May will discuss the possibilities of sophomores having cars on campus all year and smoking in new areas on campus. Late permissions will be considered by a special one quarter committee. Sally Wood, chairman of the Committee on Academic Problems, presented the committee's plans for his CAP will be considering basic curriculum requirements. It is hoped a revision of them will make the basic program more flexible and open more upper division courses to sophomores. REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL DISCUSSED at its meeting January 13 the possibility of holding elections for next year's offices the first week of spring quarter. Under this proposal, speeches will be held in Wednesday Convocation and the Hub discussion will be Wednesday afternoon after the speeches. The voting will begin in Chapel on Thursday, continue in House Meetings Thursday night, and in chapel on Friday. Hopefully this procedure will speed up the elections so that they will not extend over the weekend. Moving elections into the first week of spring quarter will mean that all petitions, decisions, and scratching must be made earlier in winter quarter than usual. If this prodedure is adopted this year, the dates for petitions and scratching will be posted later. Fingerprints found where items stolen A portable television set valued at about $220 and a telephone were stolen from the Murphy Candler Student Activities Building (the Hub) sometime on the night of January 7, according to college Business Manager P. J. Rogers. The theft was reported about 7:30 a.m. January 8, by the Hub maid, Eva Lewis. The building was immediately closed so the basement room which held the telephone and the upstairs southwest television room could be checked for fingerprints by the local police. Rogers said some fingerprints were found and are being investigated. He also said the telephone company is aiding in tracing the telephone. Certain clues indicate the two thefts may have been unrelated. Ropers said. No signs of the thieves entry into the building were found, according to Rogers. The person or persons may have used a key or entered the building while it was open. Rogers said the television which weight about 50 pounds could not easily be lifted through a window. "I have a feeling that the T.V. set is on the campus." Rogers said and added that if anyone has any information about either item, he could send the business office an unsigned note. Campus officials are looking for any students who may have used either item on the night of January 7 that the last time they were seen can be extablished.

State Zip Year of graduation THE ROFILE VOLUME LV NUMBER 13 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 JANUARY 24, 1969 Two senior political science majors, Margaret Green of Charlotte, N.C., and Kit McMillan of Albany, (ia., are working in the Georgia House of Representatives as intern aides to Republican I 15th District Representative Kil Townsend of Atlanta. Their duties include running errands for the Republican office, answering the telephone and researching bills and projects of interest to Mr. Townsend. The girls are on the job each weekday and receive free lunch and parking space for their work. Margaret will also earn five hours of course credit for the experience and after she writes a paper and does various related outside reading. people milling around and not paying much attention. Then you wonder what could they pass. But, the behind-the-scenes work is tremendous, and it's this work I hal determines I he success of a bill, not the floor discussion/' "Before they caVi really gel started, n Margaret said, "they have to wait until the appropriations committee has met. It meets for two weeks. Nobody wants toHmng up an important bill before the recess because they might not get the money for it. Right now they are mainly tied up in committees, but I hero is debate on the floor. However, nobody really pays attention except the first-tirners; ;n Kit added, "There is a huge fight over the budget Internship job at state 'circus better than pouring tea at ASC "One of us tries to be on the floor if Mr. Townsend is absent to keep him informed, but you really can't tell what's going on down there any more than in the galleries," Margaret said. As a resident of the state, Kit said she did not know what to expect of the legislature, but she has learned that representatives "do a lot of thinking and considering for the amount of time they have in which to get things done." Both Kit and Margaret are concerned over the limited amount of time congressmen have to meet. According to Margaret, the House is "steeped in tradition and is basically inefficient. They have by law only 45 days and must cram into that time a year's work. There is not enough time for them to do research on the bills. Also, another hinderance to them is that the regular congressman has no office of his own and must use his desk on the floor for all his work." Speaking out against the seemingly wasted time, Kit said, "1 am still completely repulsed by the way they waste time, but you can see from behind the scenes that it is necessary." She noted, "One day they wasted all morning on picky details to nominate and praise a doorkeeper and other such officials. But, that's just part of politics, 1 guess." Margaret recounted another episode of apparently wasted time. "One day we heard a choir lined up on the steps reverberating through the House. They sang for 45 minutes and you couldn't do anything. They used to bring them into the chamber, so I guess that's an improvement. Before the end of the session we are going to have a country and western group," she laughed. "What really impressed me," Kit said, "was their concern. You walk into the chamber and you see between the governor and the legislature." "Since the early '60's when the legislature started asserting their power," she said, "there has been constant conflict over the money issue." As a slate resident, Kit said she dislikes the one party system here. "You can still see it in issues like the Phil Campbell bill," she commented. "The lew Republicans that are in oft ice have had an effect on the legialature and its operation. If Georgia would only grow up and have a two party system, it would really make the state a much better place." by ALEX A MclNTOSH Campus News Editor KIT (L.) AND MARGARET often find themselves running errands for anyone who needs them. Here they consult with Congressman Bill Bell on the floor of the House. ANSWER- ING THE TELEPHONE is the more restful part of Kit's job in the office of Congressman Kill Townsend. ONCE UPON A TIME a whale washed up on a Georgia beach; Margaret poses in front of two of its rib bones enshrined in the capital's museum. Margaret who is not a stale resident, but who has worked in Atlanta for the past two summers, had another view. She said. "Georgia is basically a one parly state, except I hat you have the urban-rural conflict. You can't say everything the Democrats want passes becauseit depends m nunc than the parly P reference." When comparing the actual workings of the legislature to what's learned in political science courses, Kil said, "The congressmen fit exactly into the pattern we've studied. So many are the epitome of the textbook definition of the politician. 1 had thought that would have been bad, but it's not all bad. It is good to see the legislature m action." In recounting humorous moments on the job, Margaret mentioned a man she has heard of who "goes around pinching everyone." She added, "It's really a circus!" When Kit and Margaret are introduced as seniors from Agnes Scott majoring in political science, they get various responses. Tor example, one man said, "You mean they let you out!" Another commented, "Gosh, you must be intelligent!" One congressman exclaimed, "You mean they study current events there 7 I thought all they did was pour tea!" When asked about the internship program, Margaret said she would like to see it ex paneled so that others could do related work. She suggested that such a program "gives you a look at the more practical side of political scene, which is important since (here are no constants in political science." Kil declared, "It's wonderful to work for a person like Mr. Townsend who is so involved, lie makes vou feel a certain respect for (he lawmaking process." What purpose black studies? by ELIZABETH MATHES Copy Editor Editor's note: This article is the first of three which will discuss the role of the Negro in America, both historical and current. This first article is a review of an article by a Negro historian; other articles will be interviews with campus professors. During the current proliferation of courses concerned with Afro-American history and literature in schools and colleges across the nation, the use and effect of these courses must be stated and evaluated. A recent article by Vincent Harding, chairman of the history department at Spelman College, examines "The Uses of the Afro-American Past." In attempting to icview the article, one is forced to the conclusion that the theme of the piece is concerned with strengthening the newly forged "black soul." The consistent emotion expressed is one of righteous anger and pride. The thesis is that American history is not worthy of "life" if it cannot present the black "pilgrimage" with integrity. Harding presents three essential uses for Afro-American history. Ignoring the history of black men and not recognizing the irony of the existence together of both slavery and democracy, he says, falsifies American history and misleads its inheritors. Men cannot understand either popular culture or l he ur oan crisiswithout an accurate conception of the past. More important, Harding argues, the existence of color-bound history has caused the nation to lose knowledge of "a world that is neither white, Christian, capitalist nor affluent." The effect of Afro-American history upon the Negro is tonic because self-knowledge leads to a sense of identity and thence to self-respect. Black students should feel able to add something unique to the integrated scene and alleviate their "state of permanent amnesia or shame -- or both -- concerning theirfathers." A knowledge of Afro-American history is as essential, Harding reiterates, for white people as for blacks. They must be able to cope with the "angry young men" constantly emerging from obscurity. In order to utilize the talents of the black, any feeling of superiority and patronage must be cast aside. And it is plain, Harding declares, the Negro citizen can give significant service to his nation, "as an entrance to the non-white, non-western world." Using for background A. J. Muste's statement, "The world was divided now between those peoples who had rarely if ever known defeat and humiliation as a national experience and those who had lived with this for centuries," Harding goes on to state that the Afro-American story is ' this nation's link to the "wretched of the earth." He concludes with possibility that only the black people of America have suffered and learned enough to "be allowed to shape the future of the nation and to determine its calling lor the world." Harding's entire article is so constructed as to force the reader to believe him; yet, the reaction of this reviewer came to be suspicion of the avalanche of facts, names and events which seemed to be always unquestionably true, and yet also questionable. Phrases like, "one last chance to do justice" and "a people whose pilgrimage is perhaps the only true epic poem that America has ever known" gave a slightly inflated tone of excessive sell-concern to the whole piece. While no one would want to deny the Negro the opportunity to reach out for self-identification and status, it is necessary to place such bids for ethnic- glorification in their proper perspective. Taken to extremes, "black history" can become a form of self-deception of the ilk whites are now indited for. J he old story of Orestes gives us the horror of revenge quite graphically. It is necessary to face the fact that psychological needs in a time of conflict can blind a people to other alternatives. One comes to question the entire article because of the intensity of its conviction. Nonetheless, Harding represents a viewpoint that cannot and should not be ignored. Can one truly say that America is not collectively alienated from her individual parts and from the world? As Harding puts it, a "failure to face the tragic is failure to mature in national as well as personal spheres." The problem for the student comes in seeking to evaluate the historical and individual relevance of Afro-American studies, to synthesize the known with the unknown. PAGE 2 THE PROFILE JANUARY 24. 196 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR EDITOR ASSOCIATE EDITOR BUSINESS MANAGER SANDRA EARLEY KAY PARKERSON SHARON PLEMONS THE PROFILE Self-scrutiny in part explains ASC problem but more causes Copy E lizabeth Mathes Features M Beverly Walker Campus News m Alexa Mcl ntosh Advertising Catherine Auman Circulation f Tyler McFadden Views expressed in the editorial section of this publication are those of the majority of the editorial staff, unless signed by the author. They do not necessarily represent the opinion of the administration or the student body. Entered as second class mail at the Decatur, Ga., Post Office. The Image, again Comments like "You mean they let you out?" and "I thought all they teach out there is how to pour tea" from people outside the Agnes Scott community when introduced to a student can be tossed off with a laugh, staunchly refuted or consciously ignored. Statements of this sort are amusing individually, but one begins to wonder about the college's image when numbers of people at a new job or at meeting respond to the label "Agnes Scott student" in the same way. Two years ago, the PROFILE interviewed over fifty people at random asking their impression of the college. Some of the comments were very flattering - concerned with our supposed intelligence, ability and social conciousness. Other people perhaps thought they were being complimentary when they expressed other ideas. A good example of this was Georgia Governor Lester Maddox's description of the college as "a very nice school for young ladies." An anonymous person at the Georgia Tech Baptist Student Union said, "I think of a rich girl, one who doesn't have to worry about money and studies frivolous things, learning to be a socialite instead of something useful." A professor at that time new on our campus said, "Before coming to Agnes Scott to teach, I heard that it was a manufacturing center for Presbyterian ministers' wives where stuffy formal teas were entertainment." She continued that she found students interesting, but "there is a need to get students from a wider range of financial background." If the stereotype is of the girls' finishing school or if, among slightly more informed people, it is of the stiff academic institution where girls do little more than study, what do we do about it - assuming the stereotype is incorrect and we wish to change it. Margaret Green and Kit McMillan probably have more opportunity to change the old image and mold a new one than most Agnes Scott students. They are out actually getting practical experience while going to school. Other students, too have similar opportunities through church or volunteer work off campus. Besides aiding the Agnes Scott name, these people are learning a lot personally. So we arrive again at the same place. Give us more opportunities to get off campus for work and entertainment, then let's get ourselves interested in things other than ones centered on the campus. Poof! A new image. It is likely that there is no real Agnes Scott image, because we are a group of completely different people, but there is a real need for us to come into contact with people other than ourselves. Perhaps we should envy Margaret and Kit - not for their chance to do missionary work for the college, but because they can live in both worlds, ours and the larger one. To the Editor: Out of last year's nine-month winter quarter evolved a committee dealing specifically with our campus's malaise, and the issue has become a topic of widespread discussion. One often hears the honest, sometimes desperate plea, "Tell me, what is wrong? What lies at the root of this elusive, yet very real problem?" Somewhere along the line problem became Problem. We can cite many symptoms - flagrant rule violations, failure, such as late papers, to meet academic responsibilities, plain crabbiness are but a few. Student government and the administration have successfully cooperated in removing some of the concrete causes for complaint. Yet most of us agree that The Problem remains, for we have been unable, so far, to identify or to attack its underlying cause. Since retreat I have seriously thought about this problem and have discussed it with other concerned members of the Scott community. No individual idea in this letter is particularly novel, but through synthesis I have seen a pattern of emotional stress. According to psychologists the child undergoes a complex series of steps toward maturity. In the course of his development a child may undergo one or two traumas which, if he is otherwise healthy, cause no immediate problem. However, under stress these can reappear in later life if situations similar to those surrounding the trauma are reproduced., In one aspect they are reproduced at Agnes Scott. A new student is warmly welcomed into the community through friendly letters, thorough orientation and helpful advisors. However, in the course of almost every student's career at Scott the warmth seems to be inverted if she disagrees with, or -is in active conflict with WHAT SEEMS TO HER to be unreasonable or illogical rules and/or authorities. This is a reproduction of denial, experienced by the young child, who, when he cannot understand his elders, finds them illogical. If this is true, it could account for a lot of the frustration at Agnes Scott; students often just plain don't understand, or are not convinced ot the rationale behind some rules. Nevertheless in no sense could this or any single factor account for The Problem. Again, if an individual's environment is otherwise not unduly stressful, the potential distress does not materialize. However, there are several other factors at Agnes Scott which coalesce to form an extremely tense environment m 1 do not feel that this pervasive stress is conducive to emotional stability. Of course, some of these contributing factors can scarcely be eliminated, for they are in the nature of a rough four-year process which combines growning self-awareness with exposure to new ideas. However, all are not necessary parts of the educational process. Briefly t listed these factors are: (T ) a predominantly female atmosphere, ( 2 ) academic pressure, both institutionally and self-imposed, (3) tendency toward excessive pre-ccupation with self (or the opposite response - evading self-scrutiny through hyperactivity), (4) difficulty in the attempt to find physical and spiritual privacy, and (5) unnecessarily detailed and inclusive social rules. Separately, no one of these circumstances is unendurable; corporately, they create an emotional pressure cooker. I belief that as a result emotional distress, beyond that which is to be normally expected at this time in a student's life, is a major contributor to the miasma of gloom which periodically settles on our campus. 1 have put this personal evaluation of The Problem before the community with sincerest hopes of eliciting others' honest appraisals of the situation. Through rational discussion we can pool constructive, feasible suggestions which we can use to combat this Problem which seems so intangible. Sincerely, Ann Hoefer, '70 Editor's note: This letter is a very timely one and a good prologue to next week's edition of the PROFILE. For some three weeks now, the PROFILE staff has been talking about and doing research on a theme article. Simply stated, the article is concerned with the "blues" on the Agnes Scott campus, the extent, cause and solution. K.P. Detail Mangled History 101 taught by KAY PARKERSON Heaven help the poor history major. She can't even go to a movie without having her education get in her way. I went to see "Lion in Winter" last weekend and found myself picking out all the little (and sometimes not so little) historical inaccuracies. Granted that a writer has license to bend material to his purpose, but when Eleanor of Aquitaine is turned into a screeching fishwife boasting of her many lovers, it's too much . Granted she was no angel, but she was a dominant and original personality in her own right. It is sad to think that all those people who rushed in to the lobby during intermission to buy a program and figure out just what was going on will carry away that impression of her. My only other quarrel is with the character of Prince John. He may not have been a whiz-bang of a ruler later on (although a pretty good one as kings go), but he was not a slobbering spoiled brat incapable of making up his own mind. This was how he was portrayed in "Lion" Other movies that mangle history also come to mind. "Cleopatra" stands out and almost deserves an award for such bad taste. Cleopatra is another smart cookie that has been sold ou in hollywood, by switching state- craft for good old fashioned sex. And think of all those Bible movies. Only one or two like "The Gospel According to St. Matthew" attempt to really tell it like it was. And all those horrid Steve Reeves sex and and sand epics like the "Son of Hercules and the Queen of the Amazons" don't even need mentioning. One last gripe: please give us some heroes and heroines in westerns that look like they might have really gotten by in that period. That means no women in pants (horrors! Amelia Bloomer was barely born then) or current hairdos, or fakey Indians, or cavalry officers in blue tights. The point is that truth is t usually better than fiction, so why don't those awful Hollywood moguls let well enough alone and slop alienating the educated public. Will the real Eleanor of Aquitaine please come back?

JANUARY 24. 1969 THE PROF I L i: PAGE 3 NOW makes appeal to ASC; reshapes American woman by TYREE MORRISON Docs an organization such as the National Organization tor Women have a place on the Agnes Scott campus? The setting of a woman's college certainly offers adequate memhershop for such a group; however, could such ideals and goals as advocated by NOW hold any significance for Agnes Scott Students? Eliza Paschall, an alumna of Agnes Scott and also an active member of NOW, suggests in a group such as NOW Scott students could voice their opinions about the problems of our campus and take direct action sponsored by the National Organization of NOW. Mrs. Paschall commented that there are "some things peculiar to Scott that NOW minded people would want to start with.' 1 Under the present vocational guidance program, Mrs. Paschall explained, many alumna meet with students to help (hem select careers. I here are many fields, however, in which no alumna is active. Mrs. Paschall hopes that a chapter of NOW, on this campus could facilitate information about other professions whose opportunities are manifold. According to Mrs. Paschall, there is a need for a group of students and faculty on campus constantly ' to remind people that the world of women is in no way restricted. NOW's STAND ON WOMEN in the draft is constant with their belief that women should be included in all professions, vocations or activities in which men participate unless, as Mrs. Paschall pointed out. "there is avalid reason why women should be different. " Mrs. Paschall reinforced NOW\s opinion of women in the military by stating that if the draft is universal THE ROLE OF THE SUPER WCM AN-capable of both dance weekends and protest demonstrations. women also should participate .The organization is opposed to the concept of universal draft and hopes by including women in the draft, that the system itslef will be eliminated. The organization considers women equally as capable as men in the field of politics. Mrs. Paschall cited the women in politics today and in the past as exemplary of the potential of women as leaders. Many women who seek legislative or congressional offices have been supported by NOW. Mrs. Louise Watley, President of the Atlanta Chapter of NOW, is currently on the slate of nominees for the State Legislature. EXECUTIVE POSITIONS in business should be open to women. In many cases, Mrs. Paschall explained women ar not considered for important board positions because the meeting are held in men's clubs. The stereotype image of women's role in society, according to Mrs. Paschall, is the basic problem in all areas of women's rights. Women must, therefore, discard the old mold and assume a new confidence in their own potential and relationship in society. In discussions of Birth Control and abortion laws, NOW advocates the right of the individual to decide such personal matters for herself. A woman should be free of pressure from any institution such as the stale, society, or the chruch. Mrs. Paschall remarked that "if government regulates whether you can have children it sounds like Nazi Germany." THE CHURCH, she further explained helps "maintain women in an inferior role. ,, Mrs. Paschall supported her argument on this subject with the example of a woman on the Board ofDirectors of NOW who teaches theology at a Catholic university. The woman wished to become a priest; however, the church refused to ordain her. The members of NOW, at their annual convention in Atlanta last month, were unanimous in their support ot more liberal abortion laws and family planning. Mrs. Paschall staled, "society is served best by individuals who are both mentally and physically healthy/' I he interests of the individual, she commented, must be paramount. NOW looks to the future with a dynamic ideal of womanhood. The interests and activities ,of this organization are so versatile; yet, they all ultimately lead toward the goal reshaping the image of the American woman. Banister finds "Fisherman" vivid and compelling drama by CAROL BANISTER What would be the effect of the election of a Russian Pope who has been a political prisoner in Siberia for 20 years'' "The Shoes of the Fisherman," starring Anthony Quinn in a screen adaption of the book by Morris L. West, explores this question. The action is complex. Rapidly changing scenes in the opening minutes of the movie make the audience aware of the intricacy of the plot. The opening scenes-bleak, snow-covered Siberia, the prisoners laboring in the camp, the sudden removal of a prisoner-are contrasted to the warm quarters of the Russian Premier, played by Sir Lawrence Oliver. Still another quick change of scenery occurs from the bleak winter of Russia to the majesty of Rome and Vatican City. In this city of beauty and history, the audience is as awed by the culmination of centuries of important events as the character who has been separated from the world for 20 years. The scenes show varied aspects of Rome, from young girls walking in short skirts, to views of the ruins and traffic in St. Peter's Square and Vatican C ity itself. Anthony Quinn is made a Cardinal and upon the sudden death of the Pope finds himself involved in the complex election of a new leader of the church. The three major powers of the world, the United States, Russia and Red China are on the brink of nuclear war. There is a famine in China and the Chinese leader is threatening immediate world destruction if something is not done to relieve his starving millions. In this atmosphere Anthony Quinn is selected and crowned Pope Kiril I. The audience finds itself totally involved in the complexities of papal election and the suspense of the thousands shown awaiting the decision in St. Peter's Square. The world is stunned at the election of a non-Italian Pope and speculation runs high as to the possible consequences of his Russian loyalties. It is immediately evidently that Pope Kiril seeks the union of the ecclesiastical and secular world, lie realizes that despite its pomp, wealth and glory, the people are the life of the Church. The man existing within the papal robes and the walls of the Vatican is a man of the people. As Pope, the spriitual leader of over 800 million people, he alone carries the burden of world peace. The acting is superb. Anthony Quinn's portrayal of the pope is startling. He makes the transition from Barabas and Zorba the Creek in such a way that the audience forgets he is anyone other than a real Pope Through the vivid color, cinerama technique and background music the audience finds itself so totally immersed in the action that the intermission comes as a surprise. Through the first half of the movie, the complexit ites of the plot are revealed. The fast moving action makes one aware of the passage of time. The photography is such that one concentrates on the eyes of the Pope. Their piercing quality draws the viewers attention away from the beauties of Rome and the majesty of the papal entourage. One is able to feel the loneliness of the Pope as he searches for a solution that can prevent the total destruction of humanity. The great faith of the millions of Catholics and the power of the ecclesiastical world are somewhat frightening. The f uture of the world depends on this one man. When the movie ends, the viewer is filled with an inner hope. The movie comes so close to being a possiblity for the future it almost merges with reality. Each of us wonders what will be the final outcome of the conflicts existing between these same countries that are today world leaders. "The Shoes of the Fisherman" revives the hope that Christian belief in love and charity can someday bridge the great gaps in society and government serving as a world preserver of world peace.

His calling card reads "Graham W. Jackson, Favorite of Presidents," because five presidents from Roosevelt through Johnson have applauded his talents. Through his work in the diplomatic circle he has earned the title of "Ambassador of Good Will." Jackson, well-known for his talent on the organ, piano, accordian, and as an instrumentalist, and vocalist, has made remote broadcasts over radio station WERD. Currently, Jackson is the music director for Pittypat's Porch in Atlanta. Also, he records on a popular label. Graham Jackson has appeared on such TV shows as Ed Sullivan's 'Toast of the Town" and Dave Garroway's "Today" shows. His formal training includes work at Chicago Musical College, Hampton Institute, Loyola University, Morehouse, College and Atlanta University. "DANCE OF SEASONS," the new play opening on January 30 at the Academy Theatre, involves the confrontation of a monk with a group of pagan actors. The play describes j time when pagan drama was a very serious threat to the effectiveness of Christian ritual, the human sensuality of one opposing the other-worldliness of the other. This conflict is the core of the play and colors the relationships of the characters involved. The playwright, P.V. Harkness, is a new addition to Academy Theatre. A Harvard graduate, Harkness acted and wrote for the Provincetown Playhouse in Massachusetts before coming to Atlanta. Much of "Dance of Seasons is authentic. The play, a product of much research, is based on rituals actually performed for centuries by pagan actors. It represents an attempt to create through music and dance "an experience in total theatre." The play is performed by Academy's entire acting ensemble. Included in the cast are Stacy Hines, star of "A Man's a Man," Chris Curran, Page Lee, Tony Sciabona and the playwright himself. REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL passed four resolutions Tuesday. RC-66 was a resolution regarding amendments to the Athletic Association constitution. Tina Bender, chairman of Re-Organization Committee, presented three resolutions. RC-63 provided for a change in election procedure for spring elections. Under this resolution a Fanny's anniversary attended by Scotties Fanny Carmichael, who has sung for the Agnes Scott community many times, had the tables turned on her Sunday. Twenty-five Scotties attended her church to take part in the celebration of her 22nd year singing with church choirs. The students marched in wearing black academic robes singing, "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee;" "I Love to Tell the Story :" "Jesus Calls us Over the Tulmult" and other hymns. One car got lost and did not arrive until the girls had already finished. A number of other choirs participated and the service lasted from 2:30 until 6:45. Money was pledged to Fanny during the serviee to aid her in her mission work this year. Jean M. Blaylock, visiting instructor in history, went with the group. When asked her impressions of the church, she replied, "It was completely new experience for me. Fve never been to a Baptist Church and Fve never been to a Negro service before." She continued, "One of my main impressions was the extent of partieipation and enthusiasm and lack of organization and a set pattern lor the worship. I was completely amazed that Fanny had a revelation at one point and she had to be helped out. I was bewildered in a sense because it was so different. People were walking around and going in and outdunng the serviee." " I he serviee started about 2 30". Miss Blayloek went On, M We got there about 3 o'clocl and were there about an hour and ten minutes. Only two groups sang while we were ihere.both sounded more like a rock group. We left at that point. It was all verv interesting." J u nior Chris Pence is collecting money on campus to add Fanny's mission fund. Humort sends greetings to his friends.

It was written by Sandra Earley. "And I woke up and heard someone screaming and crying at the same time. I looked out the window and saw them carrying a girl to the infirmary." The next morning a note came down from upstairs and another white card was put across a mail box saying someone had withdrawn. Admittedly, this brief sketch is an extreme situation and, in this case, hypothetical. Nevertheless, Agnes Scott does have its Committee on The Problem workload, but the major blame is in lis. It's our high sense of wanting to succeed and our high sense of competition." Lou is also a student member of the Committee on The Problem. IN RFSPONSF to the question of why students become dangerously depressed or even break down, Dr. Pelt/, said kick of sleep and lack of proper food are not enough in themselves to cause a breakdown. Wallace M. Alston, president of the college, suggested other causes for the campus malaise. He said there is a general restlessness among people all over the country, not only at Agnes Scott. This is an appreshensiveness over the social system, Vietnam, StMte&ocUf, falft met f" which is looking into the campus malaise in general. Seven per cent of the campus population has visited the college consulting psychiatrist at least- once this year, according to Assistant Dean of Students lone Murphy. Conjectures on the number of students regularly visiting a professional counselor run far higher than the over 50 seeing the college psychiatrist. One student, herself under the care of a psychiatrist, called the seven per cent "a misleading number." "Many are seeing their own doctor and many more need to see one," she commented. College Physician Rosemonde S. Peltz said 95 per cent of the students she sees have physical manifestations of psychological problems. She continued that for the past ten years most of girls' complaints have been psychosomatic. Nervous breakdowns, a layman's term usually referring to acute or cronic depression, are caused almost entirely at Agnes Scott by psychological problems, Dr. Peltz said. As at any college or university, there are several suicide attempts each year. College officials declined to comment on the frequency or number this year at Agnes Scott, but Judicial Board Chairman Lou Frank noted unofficially, "There have been several attempted suicides on the campus this year." A former Agnes Scott student who is now attending another college said while she was here, "I went through a real suicide obsession. Agnes Scott is such a closed community; you see everyone all the time. I used to see everyone who had tried suicide. Everyone lives so closely together." "PEOPLE ARH SO UNHAPPY around here that you think its the norm," a present student commented. She continued, "The atmosphere here is more conducive to emotional instability." Suggesting another reason for the emotional state of the campus, Lou Frank said, "We dream up a lot of our problems. Maybe it is a part of it is our isolated situation, which really doesn't have to be." "The people who have cracked up - it's personal problems," she continued. "It's partially the civil rights and the constant demands on personal qualifications. He also said greater freedom in boy and girl relationships make for a lot of problems. "The problems are as different as the people," former Dean of the Faculty C. Benton Kline commented. Suggesting that it is difficult to delineate accurately kinds of cases, he said the critical problems usually occur when a girl has had to drop out of college after a serious illness and then takes a risk in returning. THE COLI EG E PHILOSOPHY, Dean Kline said, is to keep a student in school as long as she is able to function academically. This does not however, refer to a girl who has become so sick she is a threat - physically or mentally - to other students. If we are to keep students here and keep them healthy, then what can be done about the general depression during winter quarter as well as more seriously disturbed girls? A number of people on campus, both professional and non-professional counselors, are already available to students. Among theese are the Dean of Students and her staff, the Dean of the Faculty, members of the faculty and the college psychiatrist, Dr. Irene A. Phrydas. Students currently under the care of a psychiatrist had various opinions on the availability of campus counselors. A former student said it was not a good idea to go to a teacher for help. It is too much like having a mother and daddy around she explained. "You need someone to ask a leading question to make you think," she stated. Another student said she did not think it is fair to burden a faculty member with a problem; it is not their job to counsel. Dean Kline said in his former position, counseling was one of his foremost jobs. "Who cares about getting the mechanics of the office done when what matters is people. That is what makes Agnes Scott what Agnes Scott is," he said with conviction. DR. PHRYDAS, who was unavailable herself lor comment, is at Agnes Scott three hours each week with two additional hours at her office if needed. Frances Woodward, '72: First I Uy to work out the problem myself; then I ask a friend. Stephanie Daugherty, '72: II it were academic, I would go to my faculty advisor; if it were social, I probably would not go to anyone here. Margaret Heltzel, '72: Friends first; then if it's bad, I call my mother. When you hare a personal problem, whom do you talk to? Scottie Speaks Cindy dillum, '72: ( lose friends, each depending on what kind of problems I have. Miriam Scarsbrook, '72: I talk to everyone else, then I talk to myself. Harriet Ciatewood, '72: 1 call up my sister who lives in Atlanta; she went to Agnes Scott. Miss Murphy, who makes Dr. Phrydaif appointments for her on campus, said she is kept fairly busy, but perhaps not as busy as in past years. Traffic did increase at certain times last quarter. Miss Murphy added; one of these limes was during exams. She never knows why a student wishes to see the doctor unless she volunteers the information, she said. Dr. Alston sees Dr. Phrydas 1 job at Agnes Scott as being of a preventive nature. The college does not keep a record of students under psychiatric care, he said, and that nothing of this sort would he reported on a college transcript. "Having Dr. Phrydas as a consulting psychiatrist has made an enormous difference in a lot of ways," Dean Kline said. He listed this difference as easier access to a professional counselor, less parental opposition to psychiatric care, a better attitude to it on campus and a professional person for faculty members to refer students to. SEVERAL PROBLEMS A R I INVOLVED in seeing Dr. Phrydas, as one student pointed out. First of all, a student must be aware that her service is available - free of charge to the student for the first three visits. Then, some students resist going through another person to make an appointment, other students are diffident about seeing anyone at all, she explained. Speaking candidly, the transfer student said, while seeing Dr. Phrydas had helped her, perhaps she had not helped others. She added that there is a need to eliminate the step of seeing Miss Murphy for an appointment. "The girls are old enough to sign up for an appointment by themselves. It should be more private. The 1). O. knows too much and they blab," she slated flatly. The tragedy of a troubled girl, Dean Kline said, occurs when she doesn't come lor help, lie continued that if somebody really needs help she will usually find someone to talk to -- even another student. JUDIC IAL BOARD MEMBERS are often the other students girls find to talk to. Lou Prank said, "Judicials should be the most aware of other people's conditions Phis puts us in a vulnerable position." "Judicials need to channel the problems back to the people or to channel the person elsewhere," she said concluding that demands are often made on Judicials which they cannot and should not be asked to handle. What are the other possible alternatives not prresently available on campus? Both a college chaplain and a full-time psychologist to have been suggested. "The possibility of a college chaplain is under consideration and has been for the last several years," Dr. Alston reported. There are, however, several problems involved in a college chaplain. Not the least of these is, as Dr. Alston pointed out, finding someone who would guide rather than preach. A former student objected to the idea saying, "You can't take problems about your sex life to them. I don't know - it's something about the holy water." An experiment with several chaplains was tried several years ago, according to Dean Kline. At that time four ministers trained in counseling and suggested by students were paid by the college to counsel. Dean Kline said even after the men were introduced to the student body, they were not used. "The men themselves were embarrassed" at the lack of response. Dean Kline finished. Dr. Peltz suggested that perhaps a trained psychologist would be better than a chaplain. This person could work with most students and leave the more serious cases to Dr. Phrydas. As Dean Kline suggested, any person of this kind is handicapped, however, because of his institutional functions. SEVERAL OTHER ALTERNATI VES might also be possible. Dr. Alston urged students to let their parents in on their lives a little more, saying they would be surprised how cooperative and understanding their parents would be in a time of need. The transfer student underlined the need for more more privacy. "If there was one way - any way at all - to give the campus freedom and privacy. There ought to be more singles so you could just go in and slam the door." She also suggested that a system might be set up so that students could get in touch directly with a counselor through a message in an envelope or on the telephone. A present student said greater change in the social rules would be "the most feasible plan and not cost any money." She also suggested that a change in the academic program might be good. She cited the Wellesley College schedule of two slightly shortened semesters with four weeks at the end of the school year in which a student pursues an independent study lorwhichshe does not receive a grade.

Ideas solicited At mid-quarter when the tog s:ts :n the campus, there is little more to be said on the campus malaise, collective and personal, than what is stated by others in this week's theme article. We can perhaps underscore some of the suggestions made by others in the article. One particularly crucial point is the position of the Judicial member in relation to other students. Is it really fair to another student, with problems of her own, to be expected to counsel the students on her hall? As one person pointed out in the page one article, many students are not aware of professional help that can be obtained on campus. Do Judicials themselves know how to refer a student to someone else for help? A campus psychologist - maybe there should be some serious consideration of this idea on levels where it could really be implemented. A Counselor-at-large might be hired for the campus with the idea that he would be available for students to drop by to see him. But beyond this, he could actually go out and meet with students, listen to them and search out the problems where they are. If the campus malaise is a reality, then we should do more than have a committee on it and write newspaper articles about it. The individual should be personally aware and concerned. Any further thoughts on the subject are certainly welcome. There's always a letter to the editor. Overkeard Bemused Maddox is conceit. " Junior: "Lester a metaphysical *** Senior rushing into the library to check out a book for use during a campus date: "I have my first date of the quarter tonight! It's with a priest and he only gave me an hour's notice." *** A Junior: "What would anyone from another campus think if they heard that ASC had a COP to solve its problem?" * ** From an overworked Senior who faced an exam after Christmas vacation: "Do you ever feel like your life is one big behind?" by sandra earley Don't look now, girls, but Davidson College is propositioning people. Yes. collectively. They're looking for coeds or at least their campus newspaper, "The Davidsonian," would have you think so. It all started way back last fall with a series of editorials. It has progressed now to the point of informal polls to measure campus opinion on the subject and interviews with the college president concerning a merger with suitable girls' schools. In an editorial entitled, "Where the Girls Aren't," the reasons favoring such a merger were stated: "Davidson needs girls. Academically, they would contribute new viewpoints and new competition. And socially,. ..well, we need to learn to judge a girl on criteria other than the color of her dress, the length of her hair, and how much she puts out." An interview with the college president in the November 1, 1968, edition of "The Davidsonian" quoted him as saying, "My position at this point is that I am sympathetic to the idea of coeducation." On this happy note, another editorial, "It Takes Two, Baby," in the same issue propositioned the first school. It noted that Sweet Briar is making rumblings about coeducation, then suggested the two schools get together. Describing the woman's college as "an all girls' school in Virginia with a respectable academic standing and a reputation for being a good place to get a date," the editorial went on to define further the kind of women Davidson is seeking: "Obviously, not just any grils will do - they'll have to be fairly intelligent (and pretty, please)." The next two editorials called attention to what other schools are doing, citing studies at Lehigh University and Princeton which showed coeducation preferable. Like that identification bracelet every girl in the seventh grade wore at something during the year, the most recent Davidson proposition has gone out to Mary Baldwin. This editorial said, "There are good deals at Mary Baldwin. ..Baldwin is a merger mate that any haughty bachelor would be proud to get. It has a satisfactory academic standards and a student body of 750 women." The editorial continued, "Davidson College has been following a policy of educational virginity long enough. Drinking in our rooms is no substitute for feminine companionship. ..We need to learn that girls are people, too." Well, ladies, it's happened again - somewhere along the line when they were passing out propositions, we got left out. And we can't even drink in our dorms. Maybe merry ole Davidson should look south rather than north. Atlanta is a very nice city and there are 750 of us with better than "satisfactory academic standards." Besides, we might even put on our pretty please for them. Not only that, we already have self-scheduling of exams which Davidson students are currently striving for. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dance weekend causes mental anguish; Rent-a-date needed? Airline youth cards will take nose dive? To the Editor: I am a junior at the University of Houston and also one of several hundred thousand college students who hold an Airline Youth Fare Card. I am writing you and many other college newspaper editors in the hope that fellow students may be alerted through the editorial column of their newspaper about the recent happenings concerning youth fares. Several days ago a Civil Aeronautics Board examiner ruled that "youth fares should be dropped." I am enclosing a copy of the article. Unless the board decides to review the decision, it will automatically beco me effective in 30 days. I don't think that many students know of this and I urge them to rise to protect their youth fares. Most of us have limited budgets and receive our spending money from part-time jobs. I urge every student to contact the Civil Aeronautics Board, 1 8 2 5 Connect! c u t Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C., 20009 and voice their protest against this unfair decision against youth fares. It is important that this be done within the next 30 days so that a new hearing will be set, otherwise the ruling will automatically become law. I am told that Western Union has a new opinion telegram and for 90 cents, which can be charged to a student's telephone, a 15 word telegram could be sent from anywhere in the U.S. to your own congressman, the President and Vice-President. If a student doesn't have time to write this opinion, I recommend that he call his nearest Western Union office and send the wire. 1 hope that you will print the above letter in the editorial section of your paper, since I feel students should be informed of this injustice and that this issue is OIK that you are obligated to present to your readers. Sincerely yours, Stephanie Southgate To the Editor: Madam, I wish to denounce the invidious effects of the garish tribal rite known as Winter Dance Weekend. A society that permits its youth to engage in ritualized sensuality for no other reasons than those of achieving social prestige and emotional and physical titillation is clearly decadent. The following is the case history of one girl made desperate for the approval of her peers by her inability to cope with virtuoso displays of one-u p-manship in obtaining suitable male companionship. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent. Miss X appeared in the room of her Judicial at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, January 24, weeping and gnashing her teeth. In her official report, the Judicial noted that the girl was apparently distraught and had there not been an obviously different motive for her behavior, she (the judicial) would have been forced to question the girl's ability to carry out her normal responsibilities. The Judicial also noted the girl's irrational speech, in which she wailed that she had been cast into outer darkness when her parents forced her to come to a girls' school, that all her blind dates had been "gnmgy" and that she would did if she didn't get a date at least twice as cute as her roommate's. She then asked the Judicial to lend her a razor blade. This, the resourceful Judicial refused todo, handing her instead a book of John Donne's soothing poetry and two slices of cucumber to cool her reddened eyes. The Judicial was unable to speak to the girl at this time because she had "a mouthful of bobbypins and was trying to fix her hair so she'd look nice for Freddy." Miss X took the cucumber, but left The book, muttering that she needed a vicarious experience like a moth needed a flame. It has been ascertained from Miss X's roommate that the girl returned to her room after this confrontation with the Judicial and acted "like a real Pill" when the roommate wanted help putting her hair up. At this point, Miss X flopped on her bed, crying that she felt like calling Rent-a-Date if she thought Atlanta would have one. The roommate urged her to "go ahead and call, and shut up already." She then left the room. Upon the roommate's return, she found Miss X flipping through the yellow pages of the phone book, mumbling "actors, no. dancing, no. Maybe it's under escorts." Horrified, the roommate snatched the book away. Noting the gla/.ed look in Miss X's eyes, her roommate decided against an emotional appeal and attempted to reach her intellectually. Using Aubrey Beardsley as a reference point, she expounded at length on the significance of the fact that Miss X would have to use "yellow" pages to carry out her design. The roommate reflected later that she found the discussion a very stimulating one, but was afraid that it had gone over Miss X's head since she answered with: "You know, I think Til look in the index." The roommate left for the LDH. She returned only to hear Miss X say chokingly, "Well, thank you very much." She stood up slowly, kicked a chair and wept, 14 A not her snub! Fven the telephone thwarts me." The roommate managed to determine, between Miss X's hysterical outbursts, that she had looked in the phone index and found "escort service" listed under Detective Agencies. Miss X had then selected the agency with the reassuring motto of "Known the world over for deception," had called and had been informed that "This Was An Investigative Service." As she left for the Infirmary, Miss X murmured: "All I need is a good bodyguard, between the ages of 20 and 25, who looks outstanding in a tuxedo. Who called the Campus Cops?" Anyone able to read this sad story with dry eyes and an unmoved heart is hard indeed. The indictment of our society which this girl's frantic efforts to "make the scene" provide is a powerful one. So that this might never happen again, allow me to suggest that Winter Dance Weekend be abolished. Yours in Freud, S. (I rape JANUARY 31,1969 THF PROFILE PAGE 3 AMT fails; does future rest on new shirt-sleeve theater? by BEVERLY WALKER Plumb-broke is the only way to describe the Atlanta Memorial Arts Center. The Arts Center, unique in housing resident professional companies in opera, ballet (the former Atlanta Civic Ballet) and theatre (the Municipal and Children's theatres), had not been open even four months when it closed two weeks ago. The failure of the Arts Center has been blamed partly on financial mismanagement and partly on over-ambition. In view of the fact that other theatres in Atlanta have also been forced to close due to financial difficulties, questions arise concerning the theatres 1 lack of support. The Atlanta Municipal Theatre, with a $300,000 debt, is the third theatre to close in the past two years. The Pocket Theatre closed last year and Theatre Sensitive BAG experiments aim at better race relations by BEVERLY WALKER Sensitivity is the theme. Twenty people from the Atlanta area participated in a Bi-Racial Action Group (BAG), January 18-19 at the Stone Mountain Inn. BAG is a division of the Human Development Institute (HDD, a Bell & Howell Company. "HDI specializes in applying behavioral science research to the challenge of increasing interpersonal and intergroup effectiveness," according to HD1 literature. BAG deals specifically with personal interactions between races. The program provides an opportunity for groups of different races to look at the differences and similarities between them so that they can better understand each other as human beings. The BAG program was developed by three members of the HDI staff, one of whom is black. That the development team was an interracial one corresponds with the aims of the program. The program is designed to be used by self-directed groups. "One of the unique things about the program was that it was directed by tape-recorder with no participating leader," stated Truly Bracken. Truly, a sophomore, was the only representative from Agnes Scott. She found out about the program through a friend. The program consisted of five sessions beginning Saturday morning. Two groups of ten were formed with five Negroes and five whites in each group. In the first session each group concentrated on getting to know each other, being sensitive to one another. In another session a person chose someone in the group whom for some reason he didn't like. He was to stand in the middle of the group and be told directly why he was not liked and exactly what this other person thought of him. This disliked person was then to tell the group how he felt while listening and how he was responding. Another session included a rejection period where one person extended his arms with palms up as though he were holding someone off. A second individual, without using words, attempted to make the person accept him. Truly felt these sessions were some of the most emotional experiences she'd ever gone through. She also added, "It's probably one of the most meaningful weekends I've had." The sessions were designed for the purpose of understanding human sensitivities and feelings. The BAG group is to deal with the people of different races not the issues between them. The groups were instructed to keep this interaction to personal reactions here and now. THE HAPPINESS AND THE SADNESS of volunteer work in Pediatrics at Grady Memorial Hospital - sometimes the children do cry, but as Tara Svvartsel and three other Agnes Scott students have found, the rewards far outweigh the wet diapers. The girls work one afternoon a week, taking temperatures, changing diapers and mostly just loving the children and playing with them. Some girls help care for infants while others work with children up to age I 2. Interested students can contact Tara Swartsel or Miss Vi Craig at Grady Memorial Hospital. The next training course will be held February 3,4 and 6 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Atlanta, under its present circumstances, may also be considered closed. In such a city as Atlanta claims to be, it seems extraordinary that theatre cannot be supported. The only remaining theatre is the Academy which is trying to open an original play, "Dance of Seasons" this weekend. The future of the theatre looks pretty dim right now, according to Jerry Rentz, instructor of speech and drama. Miss Rentz feels, as many others do, that future of theatre lies mainly in regional theatres. "The theatre can't stay in New York and be anything," she stressed, "You can't get everyone to New York." Miss Rent/ added that Lincoln Center is also failing and indicated that if federal subsidies are necessary to keep the regional and professional theatres going they should be provided. However, more than subsidies are necessary. The theatre should be able to support itself, at least more than it has in the past. Love and appreciation of the theatre has not been cultivated. Miss Rentz suggested. She added that children and adults need to be educated to enjoy the theatre, and that theatre should be made more available to them. "1 don't think it's the price that keeps people away, but the atmosphere. We are approaching the necessity of a shirt-sleeve theatre," she said. Miss Rentz feels when teenagers go out, they should be able to go to a play as well as a movie. Concerning the future of theatre in Atlanta, Professor of Speech and Drama Roberta Winter said the theatre has been in Atlanta for too long a time to go under completely. "1 don't think Atlanta would be satisfied not to have a theatre - not to have even more than one," she stated. Black studies re-evaluated by ELIZABETH MATHES Second in a series. The recent stress on Afro-American studies and, thereby, on the emerging Negro self-consciousness raises a series of questions that must be answered, both in terms of the direction this educational movement will take and, in a larger sense, in terms of what this education will mean to the nation. Afro-American studies and more radical concepts of black power are by definition egocentric and even isolationist in nature. Taken to extremes, either idea produces a separatism that is undesirable. There seem to be two directions in which the efforts of education can take the whole field of black studies: first, that of separation, of color consciousness in the form of black nationalism; and second, that of integration historically, of seeing the Negro as an American citizen with a heritage both distinct from and yet a part of the national heritage. The problem for the Negro is reflected in the debate over curriculum changes stressing Afro-American studies. There is division over the purpose and goals of the new courses, whether it is better to create black intellectuals or people who are prepared for activist roles in the ghetto. IN A SYMPOSIUM at Yale on the "Black Fxperiment," the crisis was brought into the open. Harold Cruse, author of "The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual," stated that studies of Negro culture must be part of a program for "positive social change in the community at large - and not slow gradualism, but rapid, radical change." He was challenged by Martin L. Kilson Jr., assistant professor of government at Harvard, who said he felt the argument that the black experience was unique was "largely a political one which certain groups find serviceable in the contemporary conflict between the Negro and the white in American society." There seems to be a growing consciousness of the danger of separating Negro history, of isolating it from its roots in a white society As one historian put it, "The answer to bad history is not more bad history written from a different point of view." SOML WOULD ARGUL here that the whole concept of Afro-American history is ridiculous because of the dearth of material to work with, but the list of inventors, doctors, explorers, and yes, revolutionaries, and gangsters is a long one and a startling one to the typical white reader. Yet it would also be wrong to argue that these people are the greatest the world has ever seen, merely because they have not been included in the historical record. The distortion of history, no matter how politically and socially desirable at the moment, cannot fail to invalidate the very record of achievement so proudly pointed to. Responsible interpretation of history is always at a premium, but it becomes even more important in the face of potential social disaster. The attitude of I red Brooks, founder and director of the "liberation school" in Nashville, which led him to say, "Our 'liberation school' teaches Negro children about their past. If the hsitory of their past leads them to hate white people, that's not our responsibility," is neither reasoned nor practical. One must live in the world as it is, since it is impossible to make repayment to the past. ARTHUR M. SCHLLSINGLR JR., Pulitzer prize-winning historian, spoke about this problem of the creation of factionalism within a previously existing national entity, saying, nationalism is "the most powerful political emotion in the world," and in this country finds expression in the "mystique of black power." History has reinforced a sense of identity for nations and the same reinforcement could create a sense of identity, and more than that, a sense of life, for ethnic groups that could destroy the larger nation. There has arisen, he goes on to say, a large miscellaneous literature emphasizing what professional historians have ignored and because of group resentment and pride, overstatement has become a very real temptation. The problem in building up a group consciousness necessary to the achievement of long-range goals lies in the fact that group identity becomes so fixed that it supercedes all other loyalties. The coagulation of society into many such clots of self-concern will impair its functioning, perhaps beyond recall.

As Agnes Scott alumnae, we owe society our personal leadership and initiative, a debt which most graduates fail to pay. Mrs. Paschall attributed this failure to a lack of self-confidence. More often, however, it is caused by a conflict of ideals learned at Agnes Seott the aggressiveness in academics coupled with the dependance on males. Resolving this conflict in favor of independence, Mrs. Paschall stated that "the male ego is strong enough to survive. 1 ' Contemporary Psychology class and Thomas W.

The final score was 29 to 4. The faculty team included Jean Blaylock, Berti Bond, Kale McKemie, Mrs. MeKinney, Miss Cox and Sylvia Chapman. Miss Blaylock playing the game for the first time, was knocked to the floor once by the impact of the ball. Berti Bond wore her Gulf grease monkey suit: Mrs. MeKinney swore she was always able to hit the backboard before she was married. Sylvia Chapman was dubbed "Speedy" and Miss Tillman turned out to be a sneaky ballstealer. And the score was only 2 L ) to 4? Spelman exchange gives Yanks southern exposure The possibility of student exchanges with other colleges has often been discussed here at Agnes Scott. Spelman College, one member of the Atlanta University complex, is 'currently engaged in such a program. Seventeen students from St. Theresa College in Winona, Minnesota are attending Spelman this year and 14 Spelman students are also attending St. Theresa. In October 1968, Sadie Allen, an assistant dean at Spelman, suggested to Sylvia Chapman, Agnes Scott assistant dean of students, that the St. Theresa girls might be interested in visiting Agnes Scott and staying for supper. The suggestion was turned over to Tara Swartsel who had to receive permission from the dean of students office to proceed. The hitch seemed to be the accommodation of 20 more people at dinner.(See PROF1LF people, but because we were by KAY PARKERSON black students, very conservative. " She went on to describe the town as "a real small town, population 26,000. There is an actual law that no Negroes can live in town. Many of the girls have never seen a Negro." Carolyn continued, "Spelman is much more liberal in freedom, hours, etc. 1 like it here and it has really been an experience. The kids here have been basically friendly, open and honest, whether they want us down here or not. My social life is good; 1 go to parties and out.

Two of the exchange students at Spelman were recently asked their impressions of Spelman, Atlanta and other topics. Coming from a small girl's school with a strong religious emphasis, they would seem to have a lot in common with Agnes Scott. The first student interviewed was Carolyn Martin. She began by describing St. Theresa College; she said it was "an all girl's school, predominately Catholic, 95 to 99 per cent white, few intruding into their lives and their work of building up a separate nationality. Some girl militants didn't like us because we would't be as much for the cause. Some small incidents have occured since Christmas, but we laugh them off." Carolyn also commented on the reception of the Spelman girls at St. Thersa. "At first the white girls at St. Theresa were afraid of over-reacting, being too friendly just because they're black. The second student interviewed was Maureen Kreger. Her attitude was somewhat different. She refused to answer questions until this reporter had explained what my "angle" was in doing the story.

WELCOME nig MROFMLE VOLUME LV NUMBER 15 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 FEBRUARY 7, 1969 Student bill of rights unnecessary? by SANDRA EARLEY The Agnes Scott Chapter of the American Association of University Professors at its meeting January 30 failed to adopt a resolution which endorsed in spirit the 1967 Joint Statement on Rights and Freedoms of Students. (See PROFILE article, October 28, 1968). This document was drafted by representatives of the AAUP, the U.S. National Student Association, the Association for American Colleges, the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators and the National Association of Women Deans and Counselors. The national assembled body of the AAUP endorsed the statement at its meeting in Washington, D.C. in April 1968. The Student Bill of Rights, as the document is known, came up for discussion at Agens Scott when Assistant Professor of Physics Philip B. Reinhart introduced a motion to the faculty calling for an endorsement of the bill of rights at a fall meeting. After the motion was tabled for further discussion, Reinhart, at the following meeting, withdrew his motion so the statement could be directed to the college AAUP chapter for study. AAUP Chapter President Florene J. Dunstan, professor of Spanish, appointed four members to a committee to study the bill of rights. They were David P. Forsythe, assistant professor of history and political science, chairman; Kwai Sing Chang, associate professor of Bible and philosophy ; Claire M. Hubert, assistant professor of French; and Richard D. Parry, assistant professor of philosophy. THE COMMITTEE'S STUDY which included informal sampling of student, faculty and administrative opinion, according to Forsythe, resulted in a majority and a minority report which were presented to the chapter at its recent meeting. The majority report asked the AAUP chapter to adopt its statement and convey this adoption to the faculty. The motion was later amended to the effect that the adoption should be sent to the Administration committee. The report says that while the student bill of rights is often ambiguous, its spirit is clear. This spirit "clearly emphasized that individual freedom is crucial in the learning process and that 'the student should be as free as possible from imposed limitations that have no direct relevance to his education.' LIMITATIONS IN THE SOCIAL realm were particularly underscored by the report. The social requlations were said to curtail the student's feeling of freedom, occupy her time by excessive attention to red tape and discourage the growth of intellectual maturity resulting from the confrontation of difficult situations individually. While requesting the AAUP chapter to endorse only the spirit of the student bill of rights, the report also recommended that the President of the College "take note of that spirit when appointing personnel whose duties lie in the social realm." A third recommendation was that the Academic Council consider the meanings of Sections II and III of the bill of rights and report to the AAUP as to the meaning for Agnes Scott. This study was to be done in connection with the chairman of this AAUP committee and other appropriate student-faculty committees. The majority report, signed by Chang, Forsythe and Hubert, was accompanied by a minority report signed by Parry. It stated understandings and interpretations of Sections II and III which pertain to student records and student rights in the classroom. ACCORDING TO AAUP SECRETARY Nancy R. Groseclose, associate professor of biology, there are 50 m .mbers of the Agnes Scott AAUP chapter; this is about one-half of the faculty. Twenty-eight of these were present at the January 30 meeting. Debate on the two motions was carried out at length and many members left before the group came to a vote. There were members opposed to the majority report with 7 in favor of it; Miss Groseclose noted that some members still present also did not vote. Miss Groseclose gave two primary reasons why the majority report was not accepted. She said the feeling was that the report itself was ambiguous. Moreover " You've made the Deans' List and you've got 24 hours before he comes looking for you. by BEVERLY WALKER Feature Editor Believe it or not, teachers, most students want more class discussion. What seems to he the problem? Teachers want more participation; students are tired of lectures. In speaking to freshmen, a frequent comment is, "Well, I just don't feel like saying anything. " Why don't they feel like it? Students have gotten out of the high school habit of raising hands. They seem to have lost some of the courage or self-confidence necessary to break into a professor's lecture. "In high school, half the class was dumb and you could say something and feel you were intelligent, " a sophomore commented, "But here you feel ignorant. People just look at you. " Another observation among freshmen and sophomores is that teachers seem to be concerned only with getting through all the material. In the introductory courses, this may be understandable but is it necessary? Tyree Morrison, sophomore, says, "The work here is quantitative rather than qualitative. "Students have to spend so much time on picky little things they don't have the energy to realy delve into an interesting topic. The result is pressure and cramming. The idea of just memorizing chapters for tests gets to be a bore. "After weeks of this, you're drained, "a freshman said. A lack of stimulation, in class or otherwise, results. A student begins to feel like a machine; the book goes in through the eyes, out through the pen in hand, and completely misses the brain. The problem of convergent versus divergent because the report was not student sponsoror supported, members felt that "perhaps we were overstepping our bounds." " This doesn't mean the whole question can't come to the faculty or the AAUP again," she added. Another reason for the result of the vote was, she suggested, it was "difficult to see how this applies to Agnes Scott." She said that a statement of this kind would be more necessary at a large university where communication between faculty and students was not good. She urged that if Agnes Scott students have any specific ideas for changes, they submit them to the faculty or the AAUP. STUDENT OPINION SAMPLED had a large effect on the outcome of the AAUP vote, Richard Parry said. He explained that most of the students he talked with found that the student bill of rights either did not go far enough to implement change they thought necessary or that Agnes Scott students already have most of the freedoms listed in it. Speaking in favor of the adoption of the two reports to the AAUP, Parry said it was good in theory and projected a good image for students as "kinds of beings having rights and freedoms." He criticized the discussion of the motions at the chapter meeting saying it was not substantitive, not reaching the basic issue of student rights and freedoms. Most of the debate was concerned with to whom the reports should be addressed and when they should be debated, he said. While stating, "I don't regard this as a major issue, "David Forsythe continued, "The AAUP missed a chance to make a constructive move." He agreed with the suggestion of Phillip Reinhart that the endorsement would have a good psychological effect upon students. He also said the group missed a good opportunity to let the college president know how it felt on student freedom as he is searching for a new dean of students. Finally, Forsythe said, "The faculty has a responsibility to articulate its educational policy to itself, administration and students." thinking becomes apparent. In suggesting that we have more divergent thinking, some students panic. "Well, it's easier to memorize than to think of something on your own. " Somewhere a happy medium must exist. Students often go to class expecting more than they get. Too often students sit there waiting, instead of making an effort to get something going. Class discussion depends on the students as well as the nature of the class. Some classes are fortunate enough to have bold students to get the ball going. For the more timid perhaps a change in atmosphere would loosen things up. The chairs could be arranged more informally and the teacher could sit down with the students. Freshman Gin Crane feels there isn't enough informal communication between faculty and students. She'd like to see the faculty dining room abolished. Have teachers and students converse during meals, f/f some object, they can always sit at another table.) Penny Burr, chairman of Committee on the Problem (COP), feels students hesitate in class not because of the teachers, but because of their fellow classmates. Possibly the class could be broken into small groups for 15 minutes or so for discussion. The groups could themselves with the class. (Of course, the class would have to be prepared for the lesson). At any rate, there does seem to be a desire for more class discussion from the standpoint of students and teachers. Coming to a small women's college, many students believed there would be a greater opportunity for informal class participation. Class participation: how can both sides improve situation?

Over coffee To many, he was the daily companion with their morning coffee. To others, he was the Pulitzer prize-winning publisher of the Atlanta Constitution. As Dr. Alston said when introducing him at a convocation two weeks ago, Ralph McGill was "one of the citizens of our community best known throughout the nation and the world." Surely those credentials are more than enough to commend Ralph McGill. But they are not the reasons many will remember him. They will remember him for the small things, things like being willing to talk for half an hour to two Agnes Scott students. As a Gainesville, Georgia journalist said on the radio Tuesday, he respected people in the profession and treated them as equals. With journalistic aspirations myself, I admired him as a great newspaperman, but beyond that, for his kindness and generosity, although I met him but once briefly. He spoke ramblingly in convocation on his impressions of the Nixon inauguration, then afterwards, agreed to talk with two awed college students. As we talked, he put us at ease so that while our awe remained, it made of respect, not fear. He spoke not condescendingly, as he might have, but as if he too enjoyed our conversation. It was a morning of contrasts, contrasts between what he was to speak on and what he finally did, between his anticipated appearance and his actual, rather natty one, between what might have been his august manner and what was his human, friendly one. So this is how at least two people will remember Ralph McGill - and it seems a very good way, fitting among his other recommendations. He was both a public figure and a human being. We were lucky to have been exposed to him through the newspaper and more personally. To the Editor: In response to articles in the January 3 1 issue of the PROFILE, we have some suggestions which might be taken into consideration as a possibility for improvement in the academic aspect of Agnes Scott, hopefully erasing some of the campus malaise. They are: 1) An adjustment in the freshmen and sophomore course schedules would be made so that three five-hour courses would be given rather than five three-hour courses. This would enable the student to put more effort on a few subjects instead of frantically trying to scratch the surface of five. With five subjects one must jump from one assignment to another and this lack of concentrated time not only hinders the ability to learn the subject well, but wastes much valuable time deciding which scratch to make first. For example, this would be excellent for language by allowing more actual contact with it: possibly one class period of the five could be devoted to labwork as a class. 2) The trimester system which was suggested last week in reference to Wellesley College would be adopted. This idea of one short term of independent study under faculty supervision would enable the student to use her own initiative in a subject which interest her. What are we here for but to learn for our own benefit and enjoyment? 3) The grading system would be altered to a superior-pass -fail system for all subjects. This would give acknowledgement to excellent achievement and also dispose of the small thread of difference in a B+ and an A-. It would ease much of the so-called campus malaise caused by the tension to make the grade rather HMMHRMMMK k.p. Detail mmmmmmmmmmm For sale: forgotten old house by KAY PARKERSON The proud old house sits back from DeKalb Avenue a short distance. Its deep but narrow yard enables it to turn its shoulder defiantly on the business firm on one side and the decaying small houses in their small yards on the other. The old house may be decaying too, but like a fading grande dame it wears its age lightly. The house was built to last. Two stories high, wide porch and a square rooftree on top almost like a New England widow's walk, it stands. But this house is all southern. One large bay window juting out front promises a parlor within. The overlarge front door and fanlight above give rise to the possibility of a curving stairway in the wide central hall. The yard is bare now. Only an oak tree is left to the old house in its declining years, two old things gaining comfort from each other. I've always wanted to step off the bus (for it makes a stop near there on its way to town), and knock on the front door and just ask to be allowed to look around. But Em either too shy or too busy living in the present to give a thought to the past. This must have once been a proud neighborhood. Just around the corner on Moreland Avenue stands one of its peers, now claimed by some historical group. It's not a prettier house by any means, I guess its surroundings are just better. Nobody wants a showpiece tobe sandwichedbetween slums and business. I've known the house three years now, ever since I began riding the bus to town as a freshman. Each change would be eagerly noted during the few seconds glimpse afforded as the bus went past. Last year a child's gym set was put up in the front yard and I hoped the addition of youthful life would sustain the old place that much longer. But they must have left during the summer for the house looked empty last fall Just before Thanksgiving, a For Sale sign was planted in the front yard with the additional comment, Zoned Commercial. Realizing the death sentence implied for the house, I even thought for several seconds of bidding on it myself. But needless to say, a student's allowance doesn't allow for quixotic actions. No one has bought it yet, although that day must surely come, when someone's land hunger triumphs over the prospect of demolishing an old relic. But until it does, the old house continues sitting there, secure in the place it has held against all comers for close to a century. Old house don't die, they're just forgotten for progress. than the goal of learning for its own sake. Why burden the mind with unnecessary trifles which inhibit instead of help the student to use her best abilities? College should be more of a break from the trivia of high school than it is. These changes would require research and thought but we are not the first school to try them, so there are models that show success. If we could change the six-day week to a five-day week, why could we not change a three-quarter system to a trimester system, or a five-course to a three-course system? 4) A last, way-out, kooky, but rather wonderful, suggestion: why not make ASC coed? We all know how much boys lift the spirit as well as the mind. In 1889 women were not equal - now we have to face the world on an equal footing with men. Why not give us the experience we need (take that as you like)? So Davidson has not considered us as a coed-mate! Why don't we take the initiative by inviting them to join us, for the best of two worlds? We are idealists but then aren't all college students: Let's put some idealism into practical thinking and applications. In this age of science, a cure for every disease is just around the corner, if we just keep looking and experimenting. Let's quit being depressed about depression! It really comes about when we have spare time in which to cry over how much we have to do. Get busy thinking about solutions and we will solve all our problems! Optimistically, Gin Crane, 72 Nancy, Weaver, 4 72 Grammar study cited as malaise remedy To the Editor: On learning the sad news of the malaise at Agnes Scott, I was deeply concerned for the moral well-being of the students. May I suggest that the remedies could be twofold? 1) Think everyday for about five minutes about all the people in the world who are hungry, cold, oppressed, or who - though decently fed, clad and treated - starve for a little education. 2) Develop an inner discipline which would be expressed in deliberate self-respect and would prevent students from: Bringing coffee to class; chewing gum in class; making themselves ridiculous by wearing dress-pants combinations or whatever the monstrous things are called; wearing torn shorts on campus; making their pretty heads frightful to look at by wearing curlers in public; Lying around in the library and sticking their bare feei in other people's noses; engaging in demagogical considerations without trying first some humble cure as for instance: run at a good pace around the whole campus; concentrate on one's French grammar so as not to make the same mistakes 20 times over again; comb one's hair or even wash it (for a change). It is my belief that if these remedies were used, not only would there be no malaise at Agnes Scott, but 1) it would become a pleasant place to live in; 2) talks about maturity, freedom, etc. would begin to mean something. Things being as they are, I cannot help but find humorous that the same community should be asking at the same time for more responsibilities and more psychiatric help.

'Decatur FEBRUARY 7, 1969 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 Pragmatism, generosity needed in black studies by ELIZABETH MATHES Last in a Series The pervasive opinion of political and social commentary today is that a huge dichotomy of "with me's" or "against meV has grown up and all other opinions are those of apathy and/or reaction. "Times are a' changing," as the Smothers Brothers sing it, and those who will not participate in the change are asked to leave the road and not deter the juggernaut of Mod from its path. Yet it has been borne in upon this average American ever more forcibly in the course of this series on Afro-American studies that there is a desperate need for pragmatism and generosity, despite the pristine beauty of ideals. Beginning with the Bandung Conference in 1955, efforts have been made by African and Asian countries to realize a new international unity. But accompanying these efforts has come an ever-widening economic and material gulf between the so-called "underdeveloped" nations and those with European stock. John A. Tumblin Jr., professor of sociology and anthropology, remarked, "They now have an increasingly clear awareness of having so much less than a small minority of the world, who are mainly white and Christian." In Latin America, he said, population increases at a rate of 3Vi per cent a year, while the standard of living increases only Wi per cent per year. If both factors remain stable it will take 50 years to double the standard of living. When the average income is $300 per year now, an increase to $600 in 50 years k Msn't particularly exciting." With the emergence of a new sense of identity, Tumblin explained, ^there is a ( CONT.

A grant of $1,500 has been appropriated by the S&H Foundation Lectuieship Program, sponsored by the Sperry and Hutchinson Company, for the conference. The purpose of the grant is to bring experts on campus who will "enrich established curricula" by their contact with the students, faculty and nearby community. There will be four guest lecturers participating in the program: David Bronheim, Director for the Center of Inter-American Relations in New York City; D. W. Brooks, Chairman of the Board for the Cotton Producers' Association; Graeme G. Kirkland, Far East Coordinator for Corn Products Company; and Rutherford M. Poats, Deputy Administrator of the United States Governmental Agency for International Development (AID). Penny Poats, his daughter, is a sophomore here. The plan of events for the two-day symposium is extensive. Thursday, February 13, from 11:15 to 12:05 p.m. in Maclean Auditorium, there will be a panel discussion by the lecturers led by David P. Forsythe, assistant professor of history and political science. Later the same afternoon there will be a fireside in the Hub for the guests and students.

RICHARD WILBUR, a major American poet who has won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry and the National Book Award, will visit Agnes Scott February 17-18. Mr. Wilbur will read selections from his works on Monday, February 17, at 8:15 p.m. in Presser Hall. The poet will meet with several English classes and will be avialable for informal discussions with students during his two-day visit. ALFRED BLUM STEIN, director of the Office of Urban Research, at the Institute for Defense Analysis, will be the featured speaker February 1 7 at a math seminar. The seminar topic is operations research as applied to mathematics. Blumstein was educated at Cornell, received his M.S. at the University of Buffalo, and his Ph.D. at Cornell in operations research. He is presently a member of the science and technology task force of the President's Commission of Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice. He is past president of the Washington Operations Research Council, The seminar will be open to all campus members as well as math majors. RONALD STROUD, assistant professor of classics at the University of California at Berkeley, will speak at Agnes Scott on February 26 at 8 p.m. in Maclean Auditorium. Stroud will be speaking under the auspices of the Atlanta Chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America. The lecture topic will be "The Sanctuary of Demeter at Corinth." "ANTIGONE" by the French master Jean Anouilh will be presented to the Agnes Scott campus on February 24. PEGBOARD Sponsored by L'Alliance Francaise and under the direction of Jean de Rigault, the production will be performed by the French theater company Treteau de Paris at 8:15 p.m. in Presser Hall. There will be an admittance fee of $2.50 and $3.50 for students and adults respectively. "Antigone", an adaption of Sophocles' Greek tragedy, treats two themes of conflict. The first is between Antigone, the 20 year old daughter of Oedipus Rex, and her uncle Creon, King of Thebes, and the second is the universal conflict between idealism and realism. Such a combination produced a stirring drama which reached international fame during the second World War. According to its critics, its message can be applied to the present world situation with the new generation. SPEAKING AT THE FOUNDER'S Day Convocation, February 19, will be Dr. Marvin Banker Perry Jr., president of Goucher College, Towson, Maryland. According to Dr. Wallace M. Alston, president of the college, Perry will "stress the values in the sort of education in which we are engaged." THE ATLANTA AND DECATUR ALUMNAE CHAPTERS will be attending Founder's Day Convocation on February 19. Afterwards they have been invited to stay for lunch in the dining hall. In the past attending alumnae have had a student panel discussion and luncheon following convocation. These have been dispensed with this year, however, because of the new later chapel time. In addition, several members of the administration, faculty, and staff will be speaking to out of town alumnae chapters on February 22. They will speak about Agnes Scott as it is today or will lecture on a topic in their academic field. Ann Worthy Johnson, director of alumnae affairs, said these lectures were in some cases the only opportunity for alumnae to enjoy the intellectual fare that they were accustomed to here at Agnes Scott. REPRESENTATIVES FROM the Office of Economic Opportunity will be on campus February 17-19 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the mail room. Thev are recruiting for the Vista Volunteer program. In their own words, "Vista is not a bag to escape into, but a confrontation with the reality that for some 30 million Americans there is often little or no opportunity of escaping a life of poverty, exploitation, prejudice, illiteracy and hunger." "Do not look back and do not dream about the future: neither will give you back the past nor satisfy your other day dreams. Your duty, your reward, your destiny, are here and now." REP COUNCIL will invite the 17 girls who are students at St. Theresa's College and now on an exchange program at Spelman College to visit the Agnes Scott campus and attend a Rep Council meeting. (See PROFILE article Jan. 31, 1969). Carolyn Cox came to the It's not the same now' as George revisits campus The clock slowly chimed the hour of twelve and suddenly it was February 22, 1 96V, the beginning of Founder's Day at Agnes Scott. A white ghostly figure appeared on the campus. Who was the gliding figure, unseen by the campus cops, our guardians of the night? It was not the ghost of Christmas Fast, but instead that of George Washington Scott on 24 hour leave from that Great Alumnae Chapter in the sky. He had returned to Agnes Scott, 79 years after founding the school to view the fruits of his labor. George proceeded to look over the campus. It had certainly grown a lot since 189L Why were some of the lights on in the dorms t Didn 7 the girls know that on Friday night, bedtime was at 8 o 'clock ? f'hen about I a.m., all hell broke loose on campus- tires scrca ch i ng, horns blowing, whistles tooting, people yelling, girls running like herds of elephants in all different directions. Could it bet Girls actually up at this time of night'.' No, he must be seeing things- the young ladies could not actually be with- Hoys' And what was going on? Why it looked like sonic oi the young people were. no. impossible, but ves- thev were embracing each other.' And the girls, why they were half naked! Not only did their by JANICE JOHNSTON ankles show, but their calves, knees thighs and even some worse unmentionables. What did some of the girls have in their hands? Could it possibly be, yes, it was a cigarette! Oh den of sin- Oh what a Sodom and Gomorrah his beloved school had become! And to think that such a school was named after his saintly mother- Miss Agnes . Thank goodness he 'd not brought her with him. She still had not gotten over having her picture stolen! Foor George, his mind completely blown by now, he decided to stay on through the next day to sec whether the past few hours had just been a bad dream. 8 a.m. came. Why weren't the girls going to classes'.' An hour later a few girls began to emerge from the buildings. What a ghastly sight! Most of the girls were dressed like men with knickers on and had ward objects in their hair that made them look like Medusa with her snakes. Since George was a just man, he decided to take a look at some of the surrounding colleges before passing judgment on Agnes Scott. After seeing Tech and Emory, he came to the conclusion that Agnes Scott was a very nice school after all. He should have prepared himself better for the trip by heeding the stories he had heard about the changes taking place on Earth. But who could possibly dream that so much would change in a mere SO years! Because of his love for the school, George resigned himself to the changes that had taken place, offered a prayer for the girls, and returned (not with regret), to that celestial paradise where he spent many days telling about the strange events of his 24 hours on Earth.

THE ROFILE VOLUME LV NUMBER 17 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 FEBRUARY 28, 1969 Who's next in marble or oil paint? The following article was compiled by Fran Fulton, Michal Hunter, Janice Johnston, Debi Long, Alexa Mcintosh, Ginny Simmons and Lucy Williams. It was written by Sandra Earley. "I think this is a 24 hour, full-time job;" speaking of her position as dean of students, Carrie Scandrett, who retires at the end of this year, continued, "I think that one thing a dean of students has to remember is that she's not always right." When asked about the qualifications to be sought in an ideal dean of students, Miss Scandrett said that while it is difficult to delineate specific items, the most important element is the kind of person she is herself. "I think it goes back to the person," she said and reiterated one has to "go back to the person as a person." Noting that Agnes Scott has had only two deans of students in its history, Miss Scandrett said as a result of this infrequent change of administration, Agnes Scott has had a "continuity", "a kind of stability." In the search for a new dean, however, Miss Scandrett explained, "I don't think you look for tenure." She said again the college is looking for the right person, on the basis of what kind of person she is. A dean should have a belief in the college age student and should bring a real integrity to her job, an integrity enters into every realm of her life, Miss Schadrett said. When asked whether or not the new dean should be married, Miss Scandrett said "not necessarily" and explained again, the person is important as a person; "You look for a person," she said. She concluded, "I think any experience you have had you can bring to this job study, travel, human relationships." Dr. Wallace M. Alston, president of the college, was unwilling to comment at this time upon his criteria for a new dean of students. Explaining his position, he said his recommendation for a dean has been given to the Board of Trustees who are now considering it and other possibilities. He said while he cannot be sure when the board will act, the decision may be announced in early spring. In the course of interviewing applicants for the position of dean of students, and in making the decision for his personal recommendation, Dr. Alston said he personally talked with more than 40 students from all classes and all areas of campus life. He said he found student opinions very valuable and helpful. WHAT ARE STUDENTS THEMSELVES looking for in a new dean of students? As Junior Randy Jones said when speaking of a survey of students, "Even if a new dean has been chosen, it (a survey) will help her to know what the students want. At any rate, it will get the students thinking about the role of the Dean THE IDEAL DEAN OF STUDENTS of Students." Chairman of Judicial Lou Frank listed a number of specific qualifications which synthesize the comments of many students. She said she would like to see a dean who is young, well-educated, understanding and able to communicate with students. The dean should be "willing to commit herself totally to us," Lou said and added that this qualification brings up the question of her marital status. She doubts if a married woman could fulfill the job in its full-time proportions. Lou continued that the new dean should be attractive, poised and well-dressed because she will be a representative of Agnes Scott. Lou saidthis idea came up in a recent conversation with Dr. Alston; she added, however, "in the long run, the selection of a dean will not be a beauty contest." While a new dean should be open to change, Lou said, "we don't want someone who will turn the reins of the dean's office over to us. We want someone to Jead us." As another qualification, Lou listed a sense of humor and the ability to carry on a good conversation. The last qualification Lou suggested was that the new dean have "held a position on the dean's staff of a coeducational school." "This would help immensely with communication with Tech and Emory," she said. Listing many of the same qualifications Lou did, President of Student Government Tina Brownley emphasized the new dean should have, "a strong respect and understanding for the academic." When asked about student representation in the selection of a dean, Tina said, "I believe students should have a voice in choosing the new dean of students, but I see no feasible way for this to be accomplished except through the methods now being very effectively used by Dr. Alston." Contributing a qualification from the point of view of the new dean herself, Peggy Chapman, '70,said, "The most important thing is that she really wants to do this type of work and secondly, that she has had some experience with students before." Another junior said the ideal dean would have had "considerable exposure to and understanding of contemporary students' problems and needs. Concerning the best age for a new dean, she defined the age qualification as "old enough to have at least an 'aura of authority', but young enough to understand the students." "This ideal dean," she continued, "should also have, in addition to a knowledge of the 'small-school situation,' a familiarity with collegiate affairs on a national level in order to broaden her perspective." A change might also be made in the present duties of the dean of students, this junior suggested "1 think that a dean of students, in order to be most effective, must concentrate almost exlusively on student affairs so that there will not be so many conflicts of interest-this would mean the removal of several D.O. functions such as the scheduling of exams," she said. President of Mortar Board Mary Chapman expressed a similar idea; the new dean should "know how to - delegate, not try to do everything herself." Moreover, she should be "level-headed and down to earth." Mary also called for a dean who has had experience at a liberal school. "Extreme liberality," is a desirable qualification, according to Sophomore Truly Bracken. The new dean should also be able to keep an emotional distance from students, Truly continued; "They care about us too much here." "Approachable" is the adjective Penny Burr, '69, used as a qualification for a new dean of students . She also would like to see a dean who is a good counselor. Sophomore Edith Jennings said, "The first qualification is progressiveness and someone who really trusts the student body." A SINCERE DEVOTION to the college was a criterion listed by Seniors Frankie Ansley and Mary Gillespie. Frankie pointed out that this qualification might mean the dean could not be married with children of school age. Calling for a dean who is "attuned to students" and who can "move forward with the school as it moves forward," Mary added, the new dean's responsibility would be to "adapt student wants and wishes to the whole school more than just for our stay." Randy Jones, '70, student government secretary, echoed a comment made by Miss Scandrett; Randy said one of the best ways to insure that a dean would have a number of new ideas, is to select someone with a variety of interests, a background of different jobs, and a lot of travel. She continued that the intangibles like- and interest in students as people, as individuals, are more important than specifics of age, number of children, etc. A PERSON FROM A DIFFERENT AREA of the country who would be sensitive to the diversity of the student body is desirable according to Junior Bev Lee. She suggested the possibility of the student body becoming more stereotyped if such a person is not found. Elizabeth Crum '70, was also concerned that a new dean recognize each student as an individual; she said the new dean should realize "each problem is not a carbon copy of another. The dean should be able to treat each problem with this in mind." Students have been thinking about the new dean of students, but so have the members of the college administration. Miss Scandrett said she had been attempting to retire for several years and that because Dr. Alston was aware that she wished to retire, he had been looking for a replacement at the same time. The announcement of the name of the new dean of students is likely to come from the Board of Trustees in the spring. Whoever is chosen will have a high standard to measure up to, both in the eyes of students, faculty and administration and also in regard to Agnes Scott College as an academic institution.

Elections The tensions and decisions of student government elections will assault us the second day of spring quarter this year, if not before this time. It has been the custom in the past for the PROFILE to publish an election issue containing articles written by candidates themselves for major student body offices. The impetus for this approach was the idea of giving the candidates still another exposure to the campus, on paper, with as little trouble to everyone involved, both candidates and PROFILE staffers. This year the exposure the candidates receive through the PROFILE will be in more depth and directed to more specific issues so that the individual voter will have a better, more valid, basis for comparison between the candidates. In spite of a Representative Council recommendation to the effect that candidates write articles themselves for an election issue, the PROFILE will ask each candidate a number of questions of both a general and specific nature so that the candidates for each office will be called upon to speak to the same areas and issues. Through this method the attention of all the candidates for one office can be focused on the same issues, thereby establishing for the reader an area for comparison. Moreover, the candidates can be, and will be, asked about specific issues so that the frequent glowing generalities of an election can be avoided in part. Saturday, candidates for major student government offices will receive a letter from the PROFILE telling them the plans for the election issue. The letter will include the list of questions they are to answer; these questions will be answered in writing by the candidate and returned to the PROFILE. When the questions have been returned, a PROFILE staffer will meet with each of the candidates for one office and talk with her about the written answers to the questions. When the election issue is published, it will contain both the written statement of the candidate and comments made by her in conversation with the reporter. The candidate at all times has the option to refuse to give written answers to the questions, talk with the PROFILE staffer or delete any of her comments the reporter may have gleaned from the conversation. The PROFILE has a sincere committment to the Agnes Scott student body; this committment embraces both educational and informational realms. Through the innovations in the coming election issue, the PROFILE hopes to enlarge the scope of the elections, inform the voter in more depth about the candidates and create on paper a dialogue between the issues of the campaign and 'he candidates. (CPS)-Remember the promise of pitless prune packers: "Today the pits, tomorrow the wrinkles"? Well, the industry has apparently accepted the fact of life that prunes by their very nature have wrinkles. But Madison Avenue has assuaged the image-conscious California Prune Advisory Board with a new advertising slogan: "Today's prunes aren't wrinkled-they're groovy. " In the future? This is the last edition of the PROFILE for winter quarter. Although next week is non-activities week and a PROFILE will not be published, the staff will be beginning interviews with candidates running for major student government offices in preparation for the election issue to be published Wednesday, March 26. Front and center, Mary Montagu. The PROFILE Has been receiving letters to the editor for two quarters now after having stated our policy on them when we began in the fall. It's now time to do it once again and this time from the editorial column. Since the last issue of the newspaper, we have received a letter signed "Mary Montagu." As far as we know there is no student or faculty member by this name. The only Mary Montague we know of is Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, a confrere of Alexander Pope who has been dead for several hundred years. Will the real Mary Montagu please stand up? The PROFILE is not in the habit of printing, indeed will not print, letters to the editor unless we know who wrote them. We will, upon request, withhold names or print a nom de plume. Miss Montagu's letter is an interesting and unusual one that the student body should have the opportunity to read. We cannot print it or other such letters unless the author is known to us. Therefore, it behoves anyone who takes the patience to write a letter to the editor to assure that it will be printed by revealing his name. K.P. Detail Coaches meet hippies by KAY PARKERSON The essence of the U. S. Student Press Association College Editors Conference in Washington D. C. on February 13-17 seemed to be one of degree; degree of participation, degree of radicalism, degree of reaction. On one hand there was a conglomerate of student editors, radicalized for the most part by the preceding conferences and events on their campuses for the past few years. The editors seemed in a state of expectation; events at Duke, Wisconsin and San Francisco State had primed them for some kind of action. And then the hippies were there, with their requisite long hair, inventive wardrobes, and bad manners (at the times when it would serve to get them attention). They came expecting also, expecting to be accepted by the editors and put down by everyone else. (Which would serve to get them more attention from the editors.) The hippies this year had names like Melvin and Dennis, entirely too tame for such rare birds, so we renamed them Billy Goat Gruff, Bandana, Chief Sitting B.S., usually for some distinguishing characteristic. There was a pair that fenced whenever there was a crowd to gape (Their technique was quite lacking). Billy Goat Gruff, (or was it Crazy John?) tried to shout down Walter Reuther and found that being over 30 doesn't necessarily prevent one from easily squelching those less experienced and less assured. The third element was an entirely unexpected one. The great Shoreham Hotel in its mighty wisdom also booked a convention of high school foot ball coaches the same weekend. Imagine the contrast of clean shaven, right-living, apple-pie football coaches and dirty, unkempt wrong living, love hippies. The poor editors were caught in between. The hippies staged a happening Friday night about nidnight in the lobby. With coaches milling around, looking askance at them anyway, the hippies started a mock football game. Hardly before they even had time for a first down, the coaches charged them and pulling a beautiful blitz on the spur of the moment, routed them from the field. (Seems that football is only confined to clean-shaven types, except for Joe Namath). But the hippies came charging out of the huddle with a new game plan in mind (sent in from the bench no doubt). They performed a brilliant left sweep around the offensive line and succeeded in surrounding the coaches. Tackling turned into talking and before the night was over, the coaches had found that even high school quarterbacks can grow up to be revolutionaries. Frankly the coaches seemed more anxious to snake the girls who were at the conference, siding up to them and asking their views on free love. As one of the newspaper girls said, "I feel much safer with the hippies than 1 ever would with those clean-cut coaches, they grab too quickly". But this was only a sideshow to the real goings on. The theme of the conference was 'The Economics of Social Disorder". The conference was well planned, but frankly nothing new was said. Much more interesting was the chance to talk with other editors, the hippies and watch the manifestations of crowd psychology. The speakers were good: Cassius Clay, Walter Reuther, Ralph Nader and others. It was interesting that the audience was respectful to Clay and Nader, evidence of the wide range of young admiration. Reuther was heckled by the hippies, but more than held his own, and in the end won the approval of the editors, not so much for what he said, but rather for his cool under fire. Friday afternoon there was even a reception for the editors on Capitol Hill, with a few legislators and their aides in evidence. This the hippies tried to disrupt, by jumping on the furniture and haranguing the crowd. The editors were immediately alienated and began leaving before the police got there. The legislators were also blase about it and one congressman even went up to the noisy young men and quietly began arguing with them. What was interesting about the whole incident was the reaction from the crowd; agitators, take note. To excite people today don't use last year's methods. Bringing about shock requires inventiveness. Two students from France were at the Conference representing the world student press. They were intrigued by the goings on but seemed to consider hippies or Duke tame in comparison to Paris last spring. I overheard one of them talking to an interviewer. Asked their impression of the conference, they replied that the student editors seemed a cohesive radicalized group ready for some concerted action. But nothing was being done to unite them to make full use of their potential. An organization of these vital people could tie the campuses together nationwide and be a positive force for change. As it was, they were now being wasted. This seemed the keynote of the conference. A radicalized body waiting to be put to good use; a searching for new methods to replace last year's. Stimulus through interpersonal contacts rather than planned sessions; reaction against unproductive efforts by splinter groups. I can't wait till next year to see what will affect me then. Maybe it'll be the coaches rather than the editors! FEBRUARY 28. 1969 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 Sneaky but chic sheik elicts nightly shrieks by VINNIE BEDE For only fifty cents the omnivorous reader can now purchase a minor portrait in the gallery of the caveman lover. Those who long to be kidnapped on the seventh day of their Pond's Beauty treatment will no doubt find food for thought in "The Sheik:' This book was the basis of the famous Valentino movie and certainly presented possibilities for the numerous, swoonings and damsel-in-distress caricatures that litter the screen. The novel is saved from the usual sappy" "will no one save me" routines that accompany the Pitiful Pearl motif by the requirements of the hero. The reader is led to believe that not just any woman could have won the Sheik's heart. She may swoon, but she most definitely may not moon - she must be as vital as he is. The plot is an old one. Diana Mayo, the heroine, is rich, impetuous and wholly untouched by love. She is able to say, "Is beauty all that a man wants in his wife? Brains and a sound body seem much more sensible requirements to me." This kind of dialogue would ring false to any ear, except that of a Scottie. As it is, this reader nodded her head in sympathy. Diana plans a month's trip in the African desert. The first day out, she is captured by a desert chieftain who takes her home with him. She has a traumatic night, and the next day begs him to release her. He refuses. This goes on for months, during which time, Diana tries to escape and finally comes to realize that she loves the Sheik, although he cares nothing for her. This goes on for months. Emotional crisis arives at the Sheik's camp in the forrm of his boyhood friend. The Sheik becomes jealous of the friend. Before they are able to come to blows, Diana is kidnapped by the Sheik's hereditary enemy, dirty, fat, old Sheik Ibraheim Omair. (By the way, our Sheik's name is Ahmed Ben Hassan.) The two friends ride to the rescue. Diana is saved but the Sheik is wounded. He realizes now the horrors that he has subjected her to, represses his love and attempts to send her home "for her own good." Diana becomes hysterical and declares her love for him. He does the same, and then tells her to pack. Diana attempts suicide again, thereby convincing the Sheik that her passion for him is genuine. The story ends with Diana in his arms. Admittedly, "The Sheik" is a melodrama. One must also admit that it has its charm. In these days of inferiority complexes and self-laceration, it is refreshing to stumble on the old ideal of the aristocratic hero with his passion, refinement, impetuosity and brilliance - a man who cannot be tricked or triumphed over, a constant challenge. In fact, hideen in the guise of a potboiler, one finds a novel of monumental social significance. There are the usual universals: like attracting like; the battle of the sexes; and the woman's desire for independence AND love. The author then proceeds to daringly depict passion,. Her heroine is well-bred, but social mores evaporate in the heat of sub-tropical emotion. Diana does not accept her position in the Sheik's camp without a struggle, but the point is that she does give in, and in the end, there is no mention of marriage! The author subtly errodes the reader's sense of wrong-doing, so that it becomes impossible to condemn the Sheik, because Diana enjoys his attentions. This nvoel can be seen as the ultimate squashing of the independent woman, one who denies men and emotion - sort of a Hippolytus situation. She is forced to capitulate to a strong man and comes to love her punishment. On another level the novel becomes an allegory of the struggle of man against God. The end 'is inevitable, the struggle is against one's own well-being; yet it goes on. When man finally gives in he will be happy and fulfilled, as Diana is. It as interesting to see how the author has managed to give so many levels of meaning to the ancient Sabine women kidnap-rape situation. This is only possible because the Sheik is a dominant male, one of the long line of descendants of Mr. Rochester and the gothic novel. He is worldly, wealthy and as it turns out, an English lord. He is selfish only because he has been indulged from childhood; he is cynical only because he has been hurt; and he has a heart of gold to reveal to the Right Woman. He sounds fabulous. ASC Senior says press inflated recent Duke riot by GINNY SIMMONS The occupation of the Duke University Administration Building two weeks ago and the police-student conflict that followed seem to have been recurrences of the trouble Duke had last April, and were not a serious concern to the routine of campus life. Agnes Scott Senior Patsy May was at the Duke campus when the confrontation took place and she observed that the riots were the "predominant source of conversation" but not otherwise serious factors in her visit. After incidents last April, Negro students were invited to submit their demands to the administration of the university. The student Afro-American Society accordingly presented a list of twelve requests last October to President Douglas Knight. The black students apparently felt Knight was stalling in considering the demands. One student said, "We have been asking and negotiating and we have gotten past that point now. The people haven't been listening, and it has come to the point where the only way you can get someone to listen to you is to make them feel that you want what you want so badly that you are willing to do almost anything to get it."

THE MOST RECENT NATIONWIDE sweep of disturbances stirred up the Negro students at Duke to press for quicker fulfillment of their demands. Foremost among them was an accredited department of Afro-American studies. Black students want the new department to be completely staffed and controlled by Negroes. They also want a part in planning the program. Duke officials have been considering this program since the original demands of last October. The Afro-American studies problem however, is far from settled. The extent of the program may be finally a simple re-shuffling of courses involving black history. A few new courses may also be added. The Duke administration is not anticipating a new separate department. The Negro students attempted to force the issue by taking over a campus building on Thursday, February 13. According to Patsy, the Negroes boarded up some doors and windows, but left without incident when police arrived on campus. They had held the building slightly more than nine hours. THE POLICE GATHERED in the garden next to the Administration Building, put on gas masks and marched to the Allen Building where the Afros had been. Finding the back door boarded shut, the police circled the building and entered. They found the building empty. By then some 1,500 students had gathered to watch. According to Patsy, some of them shouted "Heil" and other "little Hitler Youth sayings like that." The crowd was on the whole calm. Police angered by the gathering, threw tear gas, and the students stampeded. One girl was gassed in the face. 'The New York Times" said 26 students had been injured in the clash. According to Patsy, the students did not support the Afros, "they were just riled at the police after they turned on the crowd." After this incident a mass meeting was planned. It was to be held Saturday in the Duke Stadium. The North Carolina Adjutant General's office requested Duke University president, Douglas M. Knight to cancel the meeting. It was felt unwise to have "a large gathering during a time of tension." In lieu of the planned meeting the students held a rally in the University Auditorium. The "New York Times" estimated that 1,500 students attended. At the rally, Negro students pledged continuing efforts to achieve their demands. They were loudly supported by attending white students. PATSY HAD GONE to a movie on campus earlier in the evening. At the show, students passed out papers advertising the rally and encouraging people to attend. Patsy felt that the disturbances at Duke were not nearly as serious as the press led readers to believe. She said the "newspapers tried to make the Duke disturbance a Southern counterpart of Wisconsin." At Wisconsin, 2,000 students boycotted classes, barricaded building entrances and picketed the administration building. Later, 10,000 students marched through downtown Madison. During the four days of disorder, 900 National Guardsmen cleared intersections with bayonets and another 1 ,000 Guardsmen were called to alert. In comparison to this, Duke's disturbance was a relatively minor one. In fact, of the 9,000 students on campus, 85 per cent remained uninvolved more out of curiosity, than through active support of the Negroes' cause. As Patsy summed it up, "the majority of the campus was at first displeased at the Afros at taking the Allen building. This was overridden by their disgust at police firing tear gas at the crowd." PAGE 4 THE PROFILE FEBRUARY 28, THE COLUMBIA MALL of Decatur is sponsoring an art show by Agnes Scott students in conjunction with the Selma Friedman Promotions Agency of New York and the Columbia Mall Merchants Association. The show opened February 19 and will run till March 6, displayed in the promotional islands at the mall. The show includes recentstudent efforts in the two dimensional arts, specifically: oil paintings, water colors, drawings, Batiks, wax and glue resists and prints. To help promote the exhibition, the television show, 'Today in Georgia" on WSB-TV, devoted a part of its February 24 program to an interview with Bonnie Beaver, instructor in art. THE NATIONAL STUDENT ASSOCIATION (NSA) has officially entered the fight against the Civil Aeronautics Board recommendation to abolish youth fares. NSA has retained a Washington law firm which specializes in air fare cases and will present written arguments to the CAB by February 26. Oral arguments will be made later. NSA is the only group representing students to have entered the controversy. A number of airlines have sought to PEGBOARD abolish the fares, calling them "unjustly discriminatory." NSA's argument to the contrary is that the fares offer educational, social, economic and cultural benefits and should not be cancelled. The final descison will be made by CAB later. TWO AGNES SCOTT STUDENTS, Nicki Noel and Gay Gibson, presented a jointed paper to an undergraduate philosophy conference held at the University of Georgia, February 21-22. The paper concerned Ian Ramsay's theory of religious language and was researched and prepared by the two girls. Four other Agnes Scott students and one alumnae also participated. THE JUNIORS now lead the other classes in basketball, with four wins and one loss. The sophomores and freshmen are tied, each with records of 3-2, while the Seniors, having difficulties in finding enough people to play, rank last. On Sophomore Parents Weekend, the sophomore were defeated, in spite of the support of a large crowd of parents. As the Seniors forfeited, no other official game was played. The next Friday, in a close 24-22 game, the juniors fought to a victory over the sophomores in the only game played. Lacking some teammates, the freshmen were beaten by the juniors last weekend, 29-24. The game today between the juniors and sophomores should be a good one. The basketball season is almost over, so support your class one last time and come on over and yell. THE DEPARTMENT of speech and drama is presenting 'The Queen's Candy Party" or 'The Sticky Pot", March 1 at 2:30 p.m. in Dana. This is part ot their Speech and Drama Showcase on Children's Theater Production. The play will be staged by Jerry M. Rentz, instructor in Speech and Drama, and the six members of the Play Production Class. The play was written by Nancy Kimmel Duncan, Agnes Scott class of 1958. Mrs. Duncan was active in Drama while at Agnes Scott, did her graduate work at the University of Iowa and has taought at the Westminister Schools in Atlanta. DR. AND MRS. WALLACE M. ALSTON are hosting a dinner March 4 to honor leaders in fund raising for Agnes Scott's Annual Giving Program. There are four catagories for gift giving. Those who have contributed $100 or more belong to the Main Liners. A $250 gift entitles the giver to a place in the Quadrangle Quorum and $500 to the Colonnade Club. Black power discussed at recent Borders talk by FRAN FULTON Rev. William Holmes Borders, minister of Wheat Street Baptist Church, spoke in the Library last Sunday at a Social Council and Christiam Association fireside-complete with fire. Beginning the discussion with thoughts of his own, Rev. Borders described the education of children as being of primary importance, citing prejudice and an aversion to work as patterns of thought learned in early childhood. He then asked for questions. Receiving nothing but silence for a few seconds, he inquired as to whether he was attending a Quaker Meeting. From this point on, the discussion was a lively one. When asked to comment on the Black Power movement, Rev. Borders outlined briefly its varying connotations. At first signifying black revolt, black power has been modified to mean either organization or segregation. Going further, he emphasized the importance of the Church's involvement in any movement for racial equality. "The Church has a mission in every area of life. All Holly Jackson, '69: "Have only two semesters instead of three." Scottie Speaks the world belongs to God ; there's no such thing as secular," he said. The involvement of the Christian should be one of returning good for evil, love for hate. The solution, he continued, lies in "swapping strong points," in the ability of both groups to work together. Emphasizing the need for understanding, he stated that "If every white man could be a negro for ten minutes the problem would be solved." This understanding should result in action by an entire community, in "positive and creative" action. Rev. Borders described the democratic system as sometimes seeming too slow, especially in reforming the school system; yet, he declared that the ability of blacks and whites to work together is "what makes Atlanta tremendous." It's hard to do justice to Rev. Borders on paper. His discussion, although a serious one, was well-sprinkled with anecdotes and impersonations. He described the footwork of Cassius Clay, then praised Atlanta as "Headquarters of the world" ("I ain't going nowhere; I'm staying in Atlanta. Ain't even goin' to heaven!") From these subjects he passed to an impersonation ofDr. Alston. The lecture was interesting, one that the entire audience seemed to enjoy-Dr. Alston included.

Net, former head of the Georgia Correctional Institute for women in Gotcha, Ga., has been appointed the new dean students for Agnes Scott College. President of the College, Wallace M. Alston, announced the appointment at a press conference-prayer breakfast held in the A. A. cabin. Standing before an American flag flanked on either side by campus security police in full dress khakis, Dr. Alston told the assembled members of the press from such illustrious and prize-winning papers as the Agnes Scott PROFILE and the Lakeside High School Ledger that "The college is indeed fortunate to have obtained the services of such a distinguished administrator and disciplinarian. Like a new broom, she will sweep clean."^ Then without further ado, he turned the program over to Miss Net. There was a bit of furor when she stood, but it was soon quieted by two mysterious figures in black robes; they quickly whisked away the startled girl who stated immodestly, ''Well, G.D., a wop." Unconfirmed rumors report she suffered an unusual accident just after leaving the room. She was said to have sustained breaks in both little fingers. Although questions or photographs were not permitted at the press conference, Miss Net graciously consented to harangue the group squatting cross-legged on the floor. After a quip about a "tight ship", she said she realized that since she is new to this kind of job, she must remain adaptable. She is doing her best, she said, to learn to answer when called "dean" rather than "warden." In a prepared speech she said: "RESPECT, that's the rock on which my administration will be built You punks, 'er women, will be hammering at it daily during your stay with us. It's a word I want each one of you to remember. And I want you to keep your nose clean. If you'll do these two things, we'll get along just fine. "RESPECT, it's a wonderful word. That's spelled R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Each one of those letters stands for something you need to know and live by. You just remember that word and what those letters stand for and you'll be A-Okay. R-That stands for RIGOR. Each girl will rise every morning at 5 a.m. for a quick 50 laps around the hockey field. Girls will file out by living areas beginning with those closest to the field, circle the area and trot back to the dorm. No panting will be allowed. Cat 'O Nine Tails will be provided in the dorms for girls who wish to scourge themselves further. E is for EAGERNESS the spirit in which all the daily chores will be accomplished. Teeth will be brushed three times a day and once before bed so the smiles that accompany eagerness will always be fresh and bright. No one likes an eager person with spotted teeth. S means SALTPETER which will be added to each girl's diet to insure a healthy and hardworking pris-'er, student. Those nasty vile things like eggs, olives, licorce and conch meat will be purged immediately from the Agnes Scott menu. You know what they can do. P has a multiple significance, standing for PARAGON of PURITY. This is an honorific award which each girl will strive for. There will be no scarlet A's at Agnes Scott, only purple PP's. Girls earning this label by climbing the seven steps to perfection through respect will be entitled to wear the purple PP and be addressed as "Perfect Person." E two calls to mind the ENTELLIGENCE required to be apart of that great female Rotary Club of the world, Agnes Scott College. Before the completion of each girl's four year stretch, she will be required to outline the Bible in detail in case she is ever called upon to teach a Sunday school class. C means CHEEKY, a condition no self-respecting Agnes Scott student can ever be accused of. It is reserved solely for squirrels and other similiar rodents. The closest any student may come to a cheek is when pinching it for a bit of color before the annual Meet-the-Ministers tea. T stands finally for TUMBREL, the mode of trasnportation by which each graduate passes from these granite halls into the great beyond. Someday, each one of you will rattle away in the laundry cart of life to take your place in society. And as long as you remember this word, R-E-S-P-E-C-T, you will find your spirit bolstered even when the body is willing." PAGE 2 THE DEFILE FEBRUARY 29, 1969 EDITOR ASSOCIATE EDITOR THE Copy Features Campus News LETTERS TO THE EDITOR SHOI LEY OILEY PAT TCAKE DEFILE Black market in student ZD's exposed; will guilt triumph? Vinnie Bede Sherry Ballard Billie Flegm The contributors to this week's issue are as follows: Modene Gunch, two Buttrick mice, Ho Chi Minn, Mr. Fowler, Mercy Jergens, that chic Sheik, Pat Tcake, all the boards, and especially our mothers, without whom we would have been at a loss for most everything. Selah. i The Male Menace The question has been raised in recent weeks concerning the possibility of men entering Agnes Scott's staid halls of academe. To this and all future such inquiries, the DEFILE must return a strong and resounding NO! Agnes Scott has stood for all that is pure and pristine in the young Southern woman for the last 80 years. Why sully that reputation now by stooping to admit the inferior sex? (For science has truly proven them so.) Think of the necessary lowering of our institution's high standards to allow these upstarts to enter, and the consequent watering down of courses to prevent their ultimate failure. But not only the academic side must be considered in this grave matter. Segregationof the sexes offers many evident advantages to those of us so priviledged. The simple joys of maidenhood cannot be praised too highly. Chastity, celibacy and one's solitary state permit a single-minded pursuit of knowledge more fulfilling than any sordid little sexual encounter. The DEFILE went on record January 29, 1919 to protest the decision of the Dean's Office to allow students the privilege of one male call a quarter. (We hesitate to bestow the common name of "date" on such a happening.) We said then that only ruin would follow such a heedless move, and the subsequent steady decline in morals has not failed to be taken note of in this paper. Some Agnes Scott students (we are proud to say not all) have sunken to the depths of depravity of going out as often as once a month (and there are even rumors of a few hussies who sneak out even oftener!) Evidently these poor ones show the effects of such behavior by their failure to make the grades expected of them. (Your sins do indeed find you out.) The question of coeducation only irritates the wound of the previously lamented decline in morality. With men actually tramping the halls of our beloved institution (bringing in mud, smoking cigarettes, making messes) who knows what might happen? This must not come to pass! Firm action should be taken now! Not only the possibility of coeducation must be stifled, but other necessary steps be taken. Dating must be stopped once and for all, and male teachers must be banned from the campus to prevent further male encroachment. Keep Agnes Scot pure and forever female!! Stedilie Upsweep To the Editor: In view of the recent concern over the campus problem, the great un-nameable, I think it necessary to express my opinions on the subject. It is plain to see that the enervation, or is it de-energization, that has taken place on this campus is more than the result of a paucity of male companionship. Indubitably, Miss Hoefer put her pencil upon it when she spoke of the introspection all too prevalent here. What is occuring on this campus is the death throes of innocence , which presupposes Guilt-a requisite of intropection, would you not say? To achieve catharsis, this campus must admit to itself that well over three-quarters of its members participate, howbeit tacitly, in a life of Crime. The time has come, ladies, to speak the Truth. The black market in student ID's must come to a halt before irreparable moral damage is done. Considering the tender age of the inhabitants of thiscommune it is difficult to believe that such hardened criminals can subsist among us. And "criminal" is indeed the proper label for those who filch another's birthright. Nay r let them be branded as three-fold dastards, for they subvert personal honor, college rules and state laws; they kindle the fires of Vesuvius in the hearts of their intimates, which erupt into envy, appetite and the lava of social prestige; and worst, they deceive all mankind. Rats reveal details in BR Policy case SC //()< its oo n ,4 16 This is aesthetically pleasing white space- Minutes of Judicial Board Meeting, January 3, 1969. The chairman called the meeting to order at 5:15 p.m. The board sang the hymn, "Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb?" The Chaplain prayed for guidance, foresight, wisdom, temperance, mercy, justice, understanding, patience, hindsight and that no one's stomach growl during the prayer, since it is getting to be 6:30 p.m. by that time. The meeting was adjourned after the prayer and reconvened at 7 p.m. At this time, the hall judicial of second Witherspoon rose to present the case of a freshman on her hail violating the B.R. policy. She read the policy: A. Approved Security Aides 1) . Two more parents or guardians, two senior faculty members or three junior faculty members, one of whom must hold a certificate of Senior Life-saving, one alumna and any other person approved by the Dean's staff. 2) . Four or more seniors, juniors and spring-quarter sophomores, two of whom must hold certificates of Water Safety Instructor, who are willing to take the responsibility of Security Aides. B. Using the B.R. between the hours of 8:30 ajn. and 4 p.m. 1) . Five or more students may enter together to use mirrors or lavatories, provided they do not remain more than two minutes. 2) . Three or more students may use the showers concurrently, provided they are accompanied by the appropriate number and rank of Security Aides. 3) . In order to use the other facility in the B.R., a student must be accompanied by the appropriate number and rank of Security Aides, two of whom hold approved certificates in advanced Lever-Pulling. C. Using facilities other than those provided by the college. 1 ) . Agnes Scott College does not approve of the use of facilities not provided and supervised by the college. 2) . The college does, however, recognize that in certain cases use of off -campus facilities is unavoidable. A student must submit a request to the Dean of Students Office at least three weeks in advance. A form is provided for this request. The student should submit the lavendar copy to the committee on B.R. approvals, the orange copy to IheDean of Students, the green copy to the infirmary and keep the yellow copy. Upon reluming to campus, the yellow copy should be attached to an orange card and placed in the file in the Dean of Students Office. (CONT. ON P. 4) In view of the number of students involved, it comes as no surprise that this subject has never come before the student body in any indicting fashion. Nevertheless, can anyone deny knowledge of surreptitious phone calls and willing dupes who pander to the alcoholic cravings of weaker individuals? No, I think not. The situation that inspires a desire for false identification is directly tied to one of the major rites of passage in modern American society, "the ordeal by alcohol. The ritual proceeds in this manner: girl dates boy; boy has money; big evening planned; big evening equals nightclub; girl wants to go; girl is underage to drink; girl wants to go; girl knows if can't drink, boy will be disgusted; both will be embarrassed; both will feel un-adult; boy will not ask girl out again; girl does like to drink; girl wants to go; girl scrounges to get ID; girl goes. Although this behavior is no doubt but one from of rebellion against authority and an attempt by the adolescent, as a time when he is only physically mature, to assume adult status, the moment of truth with the maitre d'hotel has given more than one girl a case of heebie-jeebies not soon recovered from. It can be psychologically harmful to attempt to "pass" from one social group to another. Should we condone self-inflicted emotional stress merely on the grounds of desire for male companionship? May we, who cannot deny a hungry cat, allow ourselves to watch our friends falter on the treadmill of Life? Surely not. Outside of the principles of honesty and honor involved, the hapless student who "borrows" an ID places her reputation in the hands of possibly unsrupulous middle-men. Who knows, but some day a vengeful chum will inform against her and she will be branded forever at the Round Table and arrested for deliberately falsifying identity in view of perpetrating a misdemeanor. As for the gull who lent the ID, the very least that could happen would be that the ID be lost and her sole means getting Youth Fare plane tickets be cut off. She is, after all, an accomplice. Let us no longer sit passively by as our friends tread the razor's edge of respectability and slip from the Krona Krome into spiritual devolution. ! propose that an effort be made to save the campus from itself, by means of a system of citizen's arrests, to be set up using the present judicial machinery. In this way, the collective fear of besmirching the fair name of the college will be avoided. It will be a glorious day when the entire student body can chant with one voice Polonius' immortal words, "Neither a borrower nor a lender be." In my opinion, he also once had a student ID.

One highlight of the coming weekend will be the Wool-Gathers all-day shopping trip to Toco Hills. They will be special guests of the Toco Hills Merchants Association at a luncheon given in their honor. On campus for the weekend, the date parlors will be particularly lively. Informed sources report that the regular occupants of McKinney have challenged Dieckman to grand Ouiji Board tournament designed to predict the future. Speaking of the future, who can predict C. F. 's? She has just received her eighth lavalier. How does she do it, girls? Only her dentist knows for sure. This week was an all-star week for M.S., too. She set a world's record of 19 dates in seven days. How do you feel, M.S.? Inhabitants of third Witherspoon will be happy to hear that after 68 ditto marks, K. A. finally got a new boy's name on her white sign-out card. A thought in passing: why is it that everyone peeks out her window about 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights? You'd think Scott ies never see boys! One of the great controversies on campus lately is the significance of that red light in the main tower several months ago. Speculation is running high as to the response it solicited. What about it, girls? If Hope Summers married Joe Chest, she'd be Hope Chest. Why is it that E. C. nearly breaks her neck every time the telephone jangles on third Outladi? Someone really ought to move that scatter rug before E. C. scatters herself all over the floor. Is it true that one of the cottages had their own private Mardi Gras last weekend? There certainly did seem to be a lot of people walking around with confetti in their ears. If Penny Burr married Bill Pincher, she'd be Penny Pincher. The last hot news item of the week is that Tiny Tim is expected to appear at the last convocation of the quarter. What a man! And what a way to end winter quarter. So long till next week, ladies. Sb.p. Co mmendat ion The Date Parlor Commendation of the week goes to the couple occupying Dieckman Date Parlor on the evening of Saturday, February 26, for conduct above-aboard and beyond the call of duty. Members of the DEFILE staff will be knocking on date parlor doors this week looking for other upstanding couples. Metalman: some date for Super Scottie?! SOCIAL COUNCIL has announced the purchase of 12 reasonable facsimile male robots for the campus community. They will be placed in the Hub so that students (female, of course) who do not know how to dance may learn in their spare time. The robots are products of the Handy-Dandy Figure Factory, home office, Hollywood, California. The robots have been here for some time, but there was some delay with the Dean's Office giving their approval. While waiting for the D.O.'s decision,many students reported hearing music emanating- from the direction of certain offices on this campus. Final approval was given, however, and it is reported by a reliable source that several members, of the Dean's staff have been waltzing around the office lately. The robots have been classified as reserve material, and as such can be checked out for further study in a student's room after 9:30 p.m. each night. They must be returned, however, before the first class the next day. Students will be responsible for any damage incurred. Social Council is also looking into the possibility of renting the robots out for next year's winter dance weekend on a first come, first served basis. Full details will be given later. The robots also come with a change of costume. When ordering a date, please specify : grub clothes (cut-offs, tee shirt, bare -footed) date wear (sports coat, plaid slacks, with aetacn- able fraternity pin), or school garb (sweater and slacks, loafers, carrying books under left arm). There are three body styles to choose from also: Dustin Hoffman, Steve McQueen, and Joe Namath, (with or without moustache). If the ex p eriment is successful, Social Council plans to acquire more of the robots. The k 70 models are supposed to be out of this world. men, men, men, men, men, men, men, men, men, men, men, men, men, men, men ASC coe< by SHERRY BALLARD Agnes Scott's plan for the admission of male students is undergoing rigid scrutiny and evaluation this quarter before presentation to the Board of Trustees for final approval in the spring. The plan originating in a closed administrative subcommittee, will come as a surprise to many friends of the college. It has however, undergone several years of intense and secret study. The final form of the coeducational proposal outlines a five-year time-table diagramming detailed steps involved in the conversion. A special committee has worked on this plan for the past three years. The committee, Bolster Livelihood by Uniting Sexes Here (BLUSH), was set up in response to an abiding unrest and depression felt on the Agnes Scott campus. THE CAMPUS NEWSPAPER and the student body at large have long pressed for such a committee. This pressure, combined with concern among faculty and administration led to BLUSH's establishment in January, 1 966. Created originally. to examine campus despondency and outline possible solutions, the committee has considered a variety of suggestions. Most of these were discarded on the grounds that they were merely forestallings of an inevitable crisis. Having surveyed all aspects of the situation BLUSH focused on the coeducational proposal. The committee felt this solution would not only resolve the present problems but would also allow for future s expected educational progress. After long and thorough research, the committee's final draft is being polished for its long-awaited inspection and official consideration. If this version passes, the college will immediately begin the adjustments necessary in curriculum, campus facilities and student regulations. Many of the changes will be perfected and ready to go into effect by fall quarter 1970. The first males will not be enrolled until September, 1971. BLUSH'S TIMETALE CALLS for the acceptance of approximately 75 men for the '71 -'72 term. These coeds will be mostly sophomore and junior transfer students and will be carefully screened for suitability to life in a primarily female environment before acceptance. It is expected that Hopkins Hall will be converted into a male domitory for the first year of coeducation; this decision was made in memory of Miss Nannette Hopkins, former dean of students, who had a rabid concern for coeducation. The rest of the timetable is on a flexible five-year schedule. During the second year, the male contingent should reach a quarter of the student population. By fall of the third year, the freshman class should be half men. Included in BLUSH's plans is the addition of a new coeducational dorm, the news of which is calculated to quickly bring the college's enrollment to its capacity of 1 ,000 students. It is realized that this change will be extremely expensive. One major and immediate expenditure will in 1971 be in hiring administrative staff. The Dean of Students office will necessarily be extended to include a special Branch for Men. Eventually the offices will split and separate deans Most costly of course will be physical changes on campus. Generally campus plumbing will undergo rather severe reworking. The present gym-lockeiTOom facilities will also be inadequate. The present plan is to have male and female students "take turns" dressing in the locker room. No peeking will be allowed. IF THE PROPOSAL is accepted this year-subject to student and faculty approval, of course-student organizations will have a tremendous job ahead of them. Not only will dorm regulations have to be rewritten, but dress policies, time limits, chaperonage policies, and campus dates will have to be enlarged to include the new male coeds. Future effectiveness of the Agnes Scott honor system may also need reevaluation. The Board of Trustees is expected to have some reservations on passing the BLUSH proposal. Their hesitations are expected to center around the immediacy of the conversion. Many people feel that two years of preparation will not be sufficient time to allow for a smooth transformation. The committee felt, however, that too much interim between decision and effection will be harmful to college morale, reputation and efficiency.

"In the tradition of the old South," says Harriet Stowe, correspondent for "Cosmopolitan." Yes folks, "After Dark on a Certain Campus," .produced and directed by Roberto Spring, is a movie you should try not to miss. The movie is headed by an all-star cast with Cassie Scarlett as the heroine-beauty, purity and innocence wrapped up in one neat little package. George Techman plays the part of the villain-seducing innocent (?) young college girls was a big game to hirn. Franky Lewis is the hero-a super sleuth who puts Sherlock Holmes to shame! Excellent support is given by the Cottage Cuties and the Date Parlor Playmates. The movie opens at a small college campus in the heart of the Southland. Our Heroine, Cassie, enters the picture as a sweet, innocent, virtuous freshman. The movie deals with Cassie's struggle to maintain her purity despite the ill intents of George and the bad Marcia Caribaltes broader and more this year." influences of the upperclassmen who "Turn on when the lights turn off."

Waddling into the quadrangle after Sunday night supper, the pigeons-some 2000 strong-angrily shook their feathers in the direction of the dining hall and denounced the food service with loud cries of "schmock!" The character of the rally soon changed when members of the radical Pigeons for Power (P.P.) began to infiltrate the group. Squeaking that they had failed to establish communication with the administration, through normal channels, the PP leaders urged recourse to violent methods. So, in a flurry of dust and feathers, the pigeon mob stampeded across the quad and into Buttrick. Finding no one there but a few startled students, the leaders decided that their only available course of action was to barricade the building. The pigeons flew in a furor to the eaves and waited to attack the Monday morning students with fall-out. Having no specific programs to offer, the PP radicals have not yet been able to reach an agreement with the administration. The disgruntled pigeons are still holding Buttrick-unnoticed, to their mortification, by the students, who usually carry umbrellas, anyway. fact that she learned the art of wasting time during her long free hours at Agnes Scott. "Winter quarter," she declared, "is a particularly dull one; students are confined indoors because of the foul weather." She suggested that students ask the faculty to assign more term papers to give them something to do. She went on to say that "boredom is the result of a lack of ingenuity." The club activities chairman, Sally Forth, then suggested that a bridge tourney be held during the next meeting but was voted down due to the common view that most of the members probably wouldn't want an extended meeting which would cut into previously scheduled TV time.

FROM P. 2) The freshman had violated paragraph C, sections 1 and 2 of the B.R. Policy. The judicial indicated that the circumstances were beyond the control of the girl. It had been necessary for the girl to consult a physician on short notice due to her disease. While waiting to be examined, the afflicting condition attacked the girl with undeniable urgency. She was forced to enter and use a non-college-supervised facility without the appropriate security measures. The girl recognized the dangers imminent in this violation, both to herself and the campus community. In view of the circumstances and the girl's present attitude, the judicial of second Withcrspoon recommended excused The members of the board felt they would like to discuss the case with the freshman in order to ascertain the circumstances and her attitude for themselves before they voted. The girl appeared before the board and was questioned. She said, her voice cracking with emotion, that she regretted the breakage, but had no choice. She was unable to speak further. At this point, the chaplain of the board received mystical insight into the case. She arose and approached the tearful girl. Speaking in garbled syllables, the chaplain kn elt with the girl in dialogue. The two conversed for a moment, apparently participating in a common revelatory experience. The chaplain rose and returned to her seat. The girl began to speak, seemingly driven by some unknown force. She was unable to control her emotional responses to the situation. She reiterated her transgressions, calling attention to the harm she may have introduced into the campus community and offering to submit to any further examination the board might require. Although the board assured her they were satisfied, she continued with these posturings. The chaplain arose once again and conducted her from the room in solemn processional while the members of the board stood and sang, "A Voice Crying in the Wilderness." The vote was unanimous for excused.

SPECIAL ELECTION ISSUE THE ROFMLE VOLUME LV NUMBER 18 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 MARCH 26. 1969 Candidates disagree on NSA at ASC What do you sec as the major areas of work for Representative Council next year? Please be specific. Bonnie Brown: One of the largest areas for concern is the growing gap between student government and the student body. Whether this "gap" is actual or imagined, it will be an important job of Rep Council to continually seek out ways to bridge it. In some areas, too, the incidence of real faculty-student communication is rare. In order to remedy this situation, I would suggest more class meeting and house meetings where students could be informed of what was going on in Rep and where Rep members could become attuned to student opinion. In special matters perhaps representatives could inform the faculty of academic problems and student opinion on what should be done with these problems at faculty meetings. Too, I would like to see broader-based committecs-by that I mean committees composed of members of all classes and expccially of students who are not members of the Rep Council or other boards. There are some minor social changes which should be made, possibly in, for example, consoliating the apartment policy. There wfll also need to be a follow-up on "lates," a resolution recently passed by Rep and now pending adrninistrativc action. In the academic sphere, hopefully there will be changes forthcoming in such things as the cumbersome make-up test preccdure, policy on cuts before and after holidays, and in more basic things such as curriculum. Much of this will come under the auspices of cither CAP Curriculum Committee. Bebe Guill: I see as the most important area of work for Rep Council next year that of implementing, stabilizing, and reevaluating the social and academic innovations from the previous student government year. This is not to say that Rep Council need only smooth over the work of past years without looking into new areas for change. But it is important that the reforms from 1968-1969 work as smoothly as possible during 1969-1970. Furthermore, Rep Council will need to work very closely with the new sixth major board, House Presidents Council, in its anticipated moves toward dormitory centralizations and complete revaluation of the sign-out policy. Rep Council will also be considering some of the questions raised below - such as the validity of Agnes Scott's membership in NSA, student involvement in off-campus activities, communication among other boards and with the students, faculty, and administration. Rep Council, with the Committee on Academic Problems, should make a careful evaluation of the quarter system and consider the possibility of the promotion of more independent study. Dusty Kenyon: Rep Council has moved quickly and efficiently this year. I think that now we need to take time to understand these changes and to make them work. The college community needs to be drawn togeth cr--thc freedom of the individual must now be understood in respect to a responsibility to the community. I don't mean to imply that next year must be a "stop!" year, for I do feel that reforms arc still needed. One major area will involve working with the new Dean of Students and considering a further de-centralization of the D.O. Other changes in the social policies need to be considered-issues such as hours, the sign-out policy, and the number of social engagements allowed. And I would like for the student body to take more interest-and responsibility-in the academic life of the college. Having worked on two student-faculty committees, I realize how important it is for us to "hear" each other. Lastly, as new reforms arc introduced, old ones need to be reviewed. Rep Council should lead in this endeavor. As we strive to understand the commitment of the college, a thorough re-evaluation will be needed. If elected, will you push for a continuation of campus reform? Why and how? Brown: Yes, I just don't think you can stop the momentum started in the past year or so. A great deal is yet to be done especially in consolidating some of the "reforms" which have been already initiated. For example, some of these reforms are still termed "experimental" and need to be made permanent. But as I stated before, I think that this year we need also to focus on a more positive ideal-not just " reform," but "innovation." Guill: If elected, I will push for a continuation of campus reform. Many of the reasons arc obvious, Any community which endeavors to function to the best interests of its inhabitants must constantly reevaluate and change, if necessary, the standards on which it is based in order to grow and mature. Though many of the policies governing student life have been changed during the past year, there are still many areas open for reform. Rep Council needs to consider the question of whether or not rules governing social living cause undue pressure on the student. It needs to consider how much jurisdiction the college should have over off-campus activities. Rep Council also needs to question the importance of the Agnes Scott public image and whether or not Agnes Scott forces a type onto her students. All of these questions must be carefully considered and thcir answers implemented in a general internal reform movement. Kenyon: My goals for next year would be, in most instances, a continuation of reforms instituted this year. I feel that changes such as those in the Drinking Policy, the Chapcronage Policy, and the Sign-Out Policy have proved bcncficial-but next year will be the time to concentrate on making these reforms work. A thorough re-evaluation of the structure of Rep Council and its committees is needed now, I feel. Some consolidation might be helpful. And the duties of such committees as NSA and Exchange/Intercollegiate need to be studied. I'd like to sec a joint Rep Council-Judicial committee formed to discuss transferring some of Judicial's work to the House Council members, and then to make plans for such a change, if feasible. A major area of concern should involve the academic life. The student-faculty committees now studying group requirements and class attendance regulations still have a great deal of work to do, but I would hope that topics such as course evaluations and co-operative programs with other Atlanta universities might be studied. The pass-fail system needs to be reviewed and some changes made. Exam scheduling also needs to be somewhat reworked. But most important, I feci that Rep Council needs to work to keep in touch with the student body-to keep students informed, to listen to student opinion, and to emphasize the responsibilities involved with each reform. Can and should Rep Council lead a movement to involve students in activities off-campus? If so, how? Is the present Intercollegiate Committee sufficient? Should such a move take priority over internal reform? Why or why not? Brown: Personally, I would like to sec more students involved in activities off-campus. Rep Council's job, however, is more to make things easier for students who wish to become so involved than to actually "lead a movement". Whenever possible, I do think we should encourage off-campus activity, and this would entail a larger role for Intercollegiate in the coming years. I don't think wc need to set priorities here; enough has been done in the area of internal reform to afford some time for consideration internal reform and encouragement to participate in off-campus activity most often gives us clues to the couldn't occur simultaneously. solutions to the problems of the inside. Guill: Rep Council can and should lead a movement to involve students in activities off-campus. There is a real need for students to become more outwardly oriented. There is an education beyond the bounds of Agnes Scott College, and through the efforts of Rep Council, students can be made aware of the opportunities. The present Intercollegiate Committee is effective yet insufficient to lead a general outward movement. In order to involve students actively in the off-campus community, a larger and farther reaching committee would be necessary. A move to involve students in off-campus activities, however, should not take priority over internal reform. Each student's primary interest is directed toward her own community in which she lives and works daily. Yet such an outward move must not be completely suppressed by internal reform, for looking to the outside Kenyon: I should hope that Rep Council would encourage students to become involved in activities off campus, for I feel that such activities give a new and broadening perspective. But this "encouragement" has to come from individual cxamplcs-I don't think it can be legislated. 1 sec Rep Council's role as the "informed inspirator." Rep Council can lead only by making information available and by appointing some enthusiastic person to chair a new committee to look into all possibilities in the greater Atlanta area and then publicize these jobs. This committee would include those representatives from CA, (the Service Project Chairman), AA and other organizations, who arc already involved with this sort of work-thus, the committee could serve as a co-ordinating body as well. (CONT. ON P.4) Bonnie Brown Bebe Guill Dusty Kenyon General Questions Editor's Note: Each candidate for each office was asked to answer the same set of four general questions in addition to a number of specific questions directed to their office individually. The three candidates for SGA President chose to answer the general questions in one introductory statement. Printed below are the general questions and the candidates written statements. Why do you want to hold this office? What is your basic concept of your board or office? What does it do on the Agnes Scott campus, especially for the individual student? What innovations do you have planned for your board? Why? How? Do you see a need for more interboard cooperation? Why and how? And in what specific areas? Bonnie Brown: These four questions seem to me to be interrelated; for that reason, I would prefer to answer them as one question. I want hold the office of president precisely because I am aware that Rep Council has done and hopefully will continue to do valuable work in the best interests of the student body. The main innovation I would like to foster is not a new committee or anything concrete for that matter, but a new attitude among students toward each other, faculty, and administration. Rep Council in past years has done valuable work in riding students of what wc considered unnecessary restrictions on our freedom. Next year, it seems to me the time has come to be creative - to think of new ways and new ideas through which to exercise our new freedom. In other words, wherever possible, I would like to sec Rep Council function positively. In connection with this approach, I would see increased work for student Services Committee, Co-curriculum Committee and Exchange/Intercollegiate. In many areas, then, Rep Council has cleared the way for increased involvement and participation in both campus and off-campus activities. Ideally, I would like to sec each student take advantage of the opportunities that appeal to her talents and interests. In some cases, interboard cooperation could facilitate this type involvement. For example, CA and Social Council recently collaborated in having Dr. Borders here on campus for a fireside. Where such collaboration is helpful - fundwisc or otherwise - I see interboard work as extremely valuable. Otherwise, they can work separately; a division of labor is sometimes preferable in terms of expediency. Bebe Guill: I chose to run for the office of Student Government President for several reasons. My experience on Rep Council and my work on various committees such as COP, the Dress Policy Committee, the Drinking Policy Committee, the Committee on Late Hours, have enabled me to sec what steps arc necessary to implement change. Having worked on the committees from which many changes have come, I want to continue my student government work in a position in which I can help to see that those changes arc effective. Furthermore, I want Agnes Scott to continue to develop into a more progressive community. For the individual student and for the Agnes Scott campus as a whole, Representative Council strives to provide the atmosphere which will best encourage individual and community responsibility. In order to carry out this ideal, Representative Council endeavors to communicate openly with the students, faculty, and the administration and to shape the policies which govern student life in accordance with the majority view. This ideal is something which cannot be carried out with the maximum effectiveness by Rep Council alone, Interboard cooperation is vital to the success of student government. Each board must be aware of and considerate of each of the other boards' aims and functions. The boards can work more closely by sponsoring more joint functions such as firesides, Hub parties, off-campus projects. Open communication and flexibility are the single most important factors vital to cooperation among boards and ultimately in student government Dusty Kenyon: I want to hold this office because I believe in the way of life for which Agnes Scott stands, and I am eager to help make this way of life work. Agnes Scott stands for ideals that both the individual and society need, now more than ever be fore- "abstracts" such as integrity, consideration for others, personal strength and conviction. I, too, am ready for change, but not at the expense of these things. I think we all need to realize how important the "academic integrity" is-and then to sec how this necessarily touches our individual "moral" characters. Such things have not been said-or perhaps, thought-for a long time. It is this "larger" perspective that I should like to see emphasized next (CONT. ON P.8) PAGE 2 THE PROFILE Should Judicial seek test cases ? Do you think that Judicial Council can actively lead campus reform? Does Judicial seek test cases in order to explore all aspects of rules? Can Judicial be a forum for student opinion? If so, how? Peggy Chapman: 1 do not feel that Judicial Council, as a judicial body, can as a board actively lead campus reform. That task belongs to Rep Council as a legislative body. I do not believe, however, that Judicial should divorce itself from campus reform. It can serve as a link between the student body and Rep Council, communicating to Rep Council areas in which students believe reform is needed. In addition, individual members of Judicial Council, both as members of the student body and student government committees (CAP and COP) are in a position to lead and effect campus reform, if they desire to do so. No, search for test cases is contrary to the Honor System itself. The Honor System requires that a student turn herself in for infractions of the rules. Judicial can and should be a forum for student opinion. It is in an ideal position to be such, as members of the board are on each hall and in the cottages. Members of Judicial are thus able to understand the rule changes the students on her hall feel are necessary. Nancy Rhodes: Because of the nature of its responsibility, Judicial is in a position to evaluate the effectiveness and relevance of policies and rules, and hence recommend reform. Judicial must go on the basis to the regulations as they stand but can encourage change through Rep of things that seem outdated or unnecessary. I frankly don't think Judicial "seeks" cases at all. When presented with them, we do explore all aspects of the rules in making our decisions. Opinions regarding rule changes are to be voiced to Rep, not Judicial. However, it is the board's responsibility to provide a forum for opinions regarding Judicial's policies and actions. This might be implemented by open hearings on particular topics and by encouraging student attendance at meetings. Rita Wilkins: In the first place, it is not Judicial's but Rep Council's role to lead campus reform, and Judicial would be ignoring its primary responsibility to the student body if it did seek out and use test cases. However, Judicial is in the best situation on campus to realize the problems and inconsistencies involved in various rules, and because the hall judicials work individually with students and the rules, if the student body were unified with Judicial and would be freer in telling judicials how they feci about what is going on, a lot of this would be bound to sift into the board's meetings. This information plus the board's feelings on certain rules as a result of the inconsistencies and undesirable results different cases have led to. can be passed on to Rep Council by the Chairman, where they may be a good basis for further campus reform. Do you think Judicial really communicates with the student body? Is there student support for Judicial, both in principle and for its actions? Chapman: 1 feel that Judicial does communicate with the students, but not as much as it should. Also, individual members of Judicial communicate with the student body more than the board as a whole. Yes, I believe that the student body does support and respect Judicial. In my opinion, the student body respects Judicial - more in its decisions in cases than in its enforcement of minor rules and distribution of campuses and points. This lack of support stems from disagreement with the rules themselves, rather than Judicial's enforcement of them. Rhodes: Communication undoubtedly could be improved. But Judicial is not some august group that sits behind locked doors; these are members elected to make decisions for which the entire student body would be too unwieldy a group. It is extremely important, then, to elect Judicial Council members you can communicate with. I have confidence in the students here to express their dissent when they don't like what Judicial's doing. No group of representatives can ever be expected to please every person in every action, but I think most students agree with Judicial Council as a principle that maintains order in our lives and enables us to have a great deal of academic and, increasingly, social freedom. When our actions are consistently displeasing the students here, I'm confident they'll let us know. Wilkins: No, I do not think that Judicial at the moment adequately communicates with the student body, and while I would say that at least a slim majority of the students do uphold Judicial and its actions, this support could probably be very much enlarged were the student body informed of exactly what Judicial does and is doing, which is not nearly as "awe-ful" nor as "ridiculous" as different student groups have been led to believe. Some students consider Judicial to be overly secretive. How do you respond to this statement? Should the board proceedings be more public? If so, how? Chapman: Judicial is secretive only as concerns major cases; the remainder of the board's proceedings are open to students. I believe the board's secrecy concerning major cases is necessary for the protection of the individual student involved. No. Judicial welcomes individual students at all meetings; they are asked to leave only if the board has a major case to consider. Rhodes: 1 emphasize the fact that Judicial meetings are not closed. In fact, student participation is welcomed. The problem in the last few years has rathei been lack of student interest in attending. The meetings are closed only in considering major cases which is for the protection of the student involved. I feel this is necessary. If the girl wants to tell her friends about her own case she can, and if she is interested, the record of the council's proceedings are available to her. If it would be of interest to the student body, 1 suggest the penalties assigned each week might be listed on the mailroom board with the list now posted of cases considered. Wilkins: A lot of Judicial's "secretive" qualities simply revolve around its lack of communication with the student body. There are instances wherein Judicial should keep things quiet in order to protect the individual, but beyond this. Judicial really is not and should not be trying to be secretive. Most of the meetings are entirely open to the student body, and this could be better publicized by having each hall judicial at certain planned times encourage her hall especially the Freshmen to attend a meeting. There could also be a number of public meetings (held in the Hub or in a dorm). Judicials might also spend a part of their orientation meetings explaining how Judicial operates, and they could include in their weekly announcements the same facts as the secretary's announcements in the mailroom. Would you say that students have an ambivalent or hypocritical attitude toward Judicial (a love you-hate you relationship as displayed in the Townsend case)? Do you feel that studetns conceive of Judicial as a police body and thus avoid interaction with it? Chapman: Although it is difficult to make generalizations concerning individual attitudes, I do not feel that students have a hypocritical attitude toward Judicial or that they consider it to be a police force. Most students, I think, realize that Judicial is concerned with the students and in doing what is best for them. Rhodes The "Townshend case" made obvious the wide range of student opinions existing on the campus; but I would not call this hypocritical. I have confidence in the integrity of the students here to express their opinions openly. I think Judicial has become increasingly conceived of as a police body, and for this reason feel it needs to be re-oriented somewhat. The connection between Honor and Judicial Council needs to be strengthened in the minds of students and what is not supportative for this relationship should be removed from Judicial's jurisdiction. Wilkins: I would say that almost everyone at Agnes Scott has a rather ambivalent attitude toward Judicial, judicials included. We are divided between upholding what we have "pushed through" student government, what we secretly or not so secretly believe is right or wrong, and what almost 'everyone is doing' anyhow. A great number of students are willing to maintain an outward respect for Judicial and yet really have little concern for what it does as long as it does not touch them, and a great number of people certainly do see Judicial as a set-apart police body against which they can best protect themselves by cutting off any relations they might have with it. This is not a bright picture at the least. 1 think it can best be solved by more open acceptance of this fact by Judicial, and by some more realistic and open communication between the Council and the student body, which if done on an individual basis between the hall judicial and students would not be as much of a flop as we tend to think any bid for "more communication" is always going to be. Does board oppose tide of modern conventions? Do you think Judicial is swimming against the tide of social conventions; that is, is it enforcing behavior patterns that are no longer required of women today? Would you say that principles are more important than practices, or do you advocate a laissez-faire government? Chapman: No. Considering the changes that have been made recently (apartment policy, drinking policy, chaperonage policy, unlimited social engagements for sophomores), I cannot say that Judicial is enforcing unreasonable or outdated behavior patterns. I am not saying, however, that additional rule changes are not necessary; there are rules that need to be changed. I don't think one can say whether principle or action is more important; neither is meaningful without the other. At any rate, I do not advocate a laissez-faire government, as a community cannot exist without sensible, reasonable rules for community living. Rhodes: I say again that Judicial doesn't set the regulations, Rep does that. But Judicial is constantly re-evaluating the rules it enforces in light of changing times. What Judicial is enforcing or ideally should be enforcing is not an archaic set of rules, but a concept of trust and honorable behavior as the basis for life in this community; I don't think that this concept is outdated. Where the rules are superfluous to this principle. I think that change is in order. Wilkins: To begin with, this question should not be delivered against Judicial but against student government in general. I would not say that we are swimming against the tide of social conventions but are rather trying to catch up, which is perhaps the continuing goal of all student government. We all realize that there is a sharp divergence between what Rep Council and Judicial Council are saying and what people in general are doing, and while this provides for a lot of discord, it is not necessarily a bad situation at all. It is unrealistic to expect student government to come to any immediate agreements with all students and with the administration concerning the basic points of controversy. What is important is that we are consistently trying to do so, we are getting places, and we do think it is important to keep Agnes Scott abreast of the situation. The thought of maintaining a hypocritical set of unenforced and unenforceable rules is abominable. It has been observed that the slate of candidates for Judicial Chairman is a conservative one, is this a fair assessment? If so, will you make a conscious effort to bring in dissident opinions? Why and how? Chapman: I do not feel this is really a fair assessment of the candidates. Besides, I'm not sure exactly what is meant by the term "conservative" used in this context. If working through existing channels is considered to be conservative, then I would consider myself conservative. If conservative is meant to apply to one who is against rule and policy changes, and who advocates a preservation of the status quo, then 1 would not consider myself a conservative. Yes. I think differing opinions are necessary and beneficial to Judicial, as they enable the board to see different aspects of rules, policies, cases, and penalities. Such opinions are necessary if Judicial is to represent and serve the student body. I feel sure that students with different opinions will be elected to Judicial Council. Additional differing opinions could be brought in if more students came to Judicial meetings and voiced their opinions. Rhodes: I have found that Rita, Peggy, and I have often disagreed on particular issues, so I think the label a little too general. A key part of the Chairman's function is to, regardless of her personal views, see that all opinions are given a voice. I certainly would do everything within my power to increase my awareness of attitudes on campus and to maintain an openness towards all views. By open meetings, by hopefully a board that represents a wide range of views, by talk between judicials and other students and between the Chairman and other students the board must try to achieve maximum awareness of all views, and, thus increase the store of wisdom from which decisions must be made. (CONT. ON P. 3) THE PROFILE PAGE 3 JUDICIAL : General Questions Why office? do you want to hold this Peggy Chapman: 1 would like to be Judicial chairman because of an interest in and concern for the Honor System and those who live under it. I would like to see the system better understood, strengthened, and extended. Nancy Rhodes: I am interested in holding tne position of Judicial Chairman because I feel I have something to contribute to the office. As member and secretary of the Council I have had a chance to find out the various details of Judiciafs work; I have an idea of what I think Judicial should be and have seen places where changes could be made. Rita Wilkins: 1 want to hold this office because I think 1 have the time, the interest, and the know-how to do it, and because I am sufficiently concerned about some of the things that have been going on in this school, that I would like to get in there and do something about it, and 1 feel that the position of Judicial Chairman adequately lends itself to what I would like to do. The points that most directly concern me are the lack of communication between student government and the student body, the mistaken ideas that so many of us have concerning what is going on and what others think about it, and the often two-faced and overemotional attitudes we all have toward student government. I would like tc see a more objective appraisal of what we have, what we ought to do, and just how far we can go with the situation as it now stands. I would like to use the many opportunities that the Judicial Chairman has to encourage more unity between Judicial and students, the basis of which I think lies in a set of attitudes that have been built up and which could be rectified by Judicial itself. What is your basic concept of your board or office? What does it do on the Agnes Scott campus, especially for the individual student? Chapman: j believe Judicial Council to be an integrating force, a link between the Honor System, and all that it entails, and the student body, the administration, and the faculty. In my opinion, Judicial Council's most important function is to convey to the student body the meaning of the Honor System. Judicial Council should, ideally, do much more than distribute campuses; it should strive, along with the student body, to understand and live up to the demands of the Honor System. Rhodes: First, I think it's important to make the distinction between Judicial and Rep Council. Judicial is not a legislative body: it enforces policies and regulations established by Rep and Administration. Of course, this docs put Judicial in the position of considering the relevance of the rules and policies upon which it is acting, and when it feels changes need to be made it can and does recommend those changes to Rep, the correct legislative authority. This function of interpreting and judgement anil actions. Wilkins: To me, the primary purpose of Judicial is to safeguard student government. We, as students, have to a great degree influenced a great many of the forward looking reforms on our campus, and have Jone so always with the correlative promise that wc were capable of the responsibility that goes along with it. None of tins is any good, however, unless we arc able both to say with student confirmation what we will do enforcing the college's regulations must be based on the combined and then go on to carry it through, wisdom of every member of the board The indicator of the success of plus any other student opinions it can student legislation is not how good it get, for the more informed the sounds, but how well it works, and Council is of all views, the more educated it's decisions are able to be This is where the Chairman comes in The Chairman has a responsibility to be informed of student opinions towards Judicial's functioning and to see that all opinions are heard, having a system of justice is what enables us to live in a community of trust. Without some sort of justice we would live in utter fear and chaos. And the alternative to a system based on honor is an administrative police-state. More than defending a particular set of rules. Judicial is defending the concept of honor is a basis for our life here. Hopefully, for the individual this type of system brings an awareness of the trust that is vested in her, of the confidence that is placed in her Does board oppose... (CONT. FROM P. 2) Wilkins: As I am not in the position to know exactly how the PROFILE would define a liberal versus a conservative Judicial candidate, I would make the distinction as being between a person who is consistently progressive, willing to hear other views, and taking the more individual and broad-minded view of the situation, as opposed to one who would rather tend to uphold and support the standards of the community fairly literally and objectively as they now stand. I do feel thai the conservative assessment of the three candidates is unrealistic, basically because Judicial itself is placed in a sort of halfway position between these two extremes. Our primary role is to uphold the community standards as they now stand, and yet we are all pulled at times by our own sentiments to interpret the rules more or less literally. How conservative or liberal an individual is in this situation is a rather subjective decision as to how often she is on one side more than the other. As far as these three candidates, we are farily moderate. I have seen us on one side as much as the other, which is not a sign of inconsistency, but a sign that we are wiiling to treat each case individually. A moderate chairman is perhaps the most practical one as she is willing to let both sides have their say, which either a violently conservative or liberal chairman might not, thus overstepping her position as basically a moderator to the board. Is it part of the hall judicial's function to be a personal counselor to students on her hall? If so, how and where does she draw the line between her obligation to a friend and her position, as a member of the board? Chapman: Only in so far as rules, policies, and questions concerning honor are involved. The hall judicial should not be a ''personal counselor" as such to the students on her hall. Rhodes: The judicial's function is not to be a "second conscience" for everyone on the hall. Every student here has the function of counseling her friends to some extent; the judicial, because of her position has perhaps thought a little more about some aspects of life here and in this sense does have a greater responsibility of sharing her conclusions. She has the same responsibility that every student has of seeing that the system of honor that we live under "works." From this perspective, her obligation to a friend should not conflict with her position as a member of the board. Wilkins: There are certain instances in which it is a part of the judicial's function to act as a personal counselor to the students on her hall. This might involve such situations as advising students what they may or may not do under the rules, or perhaps talking to an individual concerning her attitude toward the whole system mainly with her welfare in mind. Beyond these necessary counseling rules, it is not a part of the hall judicial's duty to be a personal counselor. However, often those personal qualities that made an individual a judicial might also be of the kind that invite students to ask her advice on different matters. How far she goes in this area is her personal choice, but it should not overrule her obligation to the board, which on a higher plane is also an obligation to the student body, and paradoxically to that very individual who is asking for her help from a different position. What is your position on dorm searches? Are they necessary or do they infringe unduly on personal rights? Chapman: I neither like nor approve of dorm searches, but feel they are necessary occasionally to stop theft and disappearance of articles. Dorm searches do infringe upon personal rights, but I believe they are necessary to protect the community as a whole. Rhodes : I detest the idea of going through another persons's personal belongings, but they are held only when the situation in a dorm has reached the point that the girls in the dorm desire it, and then only as a very last resort. If things have reached this point, then I think the dorm search is necessary. I would like to investigate what other schools do about similar problems, and if this still seems the best method, I would like to see Rep Council pass a permanent policy regarding dorm searches, for the protection of Judicial Council as well as individuals. Wilkins: I think that dorm searches are very rarely necessary at Agnes Scott, but then again, there is a point at which they become the only means available to alleviate the problem of losses. That point comes when losses in a confined location have consistently involved such valuable individual property that the students themselves have requested Judicial action. I would never recommend using a dorm search until I had tried every other method first (hall meetings, etc.), and unless I felt that the students involved very generally felt the need of a dorm search and had so expressed themselves to me, and unless the situation was such that there was a good hope of recovering the lost material and hopefully of curbing the more general problem of losses. Unless all of these conditions are met, I do think that a dorm search is an invasion of personal rights, but when the situation is bad enough for the students involved to agree it is the only way out, then I feel that a dorm search is justified and necessary to maintain the free way of life we have here. that is where Judicial stands. Judicial is in the position primarily of upholding what Rep Council legislates, the added responsibility of which is to use these rules for students and not primarily against them, to anticipate and provide for student difficulties, and to encourage a healthy attitude on campus. What a lot of people forget is that Judicial is an elected council. It has a responsibility to the student body to apply the rules as fairly, as impartially, and yet as humanely as possible. It is not a board of specially endowed people, but a board of ordinary students with the specific purpose of maintaining our student government and when possible making practical recommendations to Rep Council concerning reform. What innovations do you have planned for your board? Why? How? Chapman: I would like to see closer communication between Judicial Council and other branches of Student Government and Judicial Council and the Student body. I believe Judicial needs to communicate more closely with both Student Government (specifically COP and Rep Council) and the student body (through more Judicial meetings in the dorms) to solve questions and problems and effectuate need rule changes. By meeting with COP periodically. Judicial would be in a position to communicate more closely with members of the administration and faculty, as members of both of these groups are also members of COP. I think greater communication between Judicial and the administration and faculty is desirable to effectuate rule changes and attain a greater understanding of the Honor System; the administration and faculty can contribute a slightly different interpretation of the Honor System and what it entails. Rhodes: Specifically, I would like to sec the automatic penalty system moved to House Council. My reason for this is not that honor is something contained in the major policies of the college and irrelevant to these regulations of community life, for honorablcncss is a part of all aspects of life here, but rather, I think that the concept, honor, gets bogged down around here in the "picky ruics." This change would restore dignity to what Judicial Council is and would create a better perspective of the severity of violations. The structure for change has been set up now that House Council has members on each hall. This might necessitate the election rather than appointment of H. C. representatives; it might necessitate, too, a re-evaluation of Judicial's role on campus and the reorganization of Judicial. I think wc need to head in this direction. I would like to see open hearings held on questions of concern to the student body such as Judicial policies and the penalty system. I would like to see more board discussion of campus problems and Judicial's relation to them. Wilkins: The innovations 1 would recommend for Judicial Council primarily concern pushing for more communication within studcnl government and between Judicial and the student body. The new office of Vice-Chairman of Judicial will be an extremely valuable one for promoting interboard communication. I would like to see more emphasis on a well prepared and organized Freshman orientation from Judicial's side, and perhaps some follow up meetings later in the year for l : reshmen and interested upperclassmen, as a lot of the points people get is purely from ignorance of the rules. I think Judicial can well use its influence concerning a better placing of the Honor Pledge and more specific information being sent to prospective students. 1 would work for a more consistent and objective attitude on the board itself, and would work with Rep Council ultimately for a handing over of many of the jobs of Judicial to House Council. Most of the improvements on Judicial, however, involve not reforms of the board but reforms in attitude. This can be accomplished by means of the individual board members, most likely by more planned general discussions among them aside from the actual board meetings when too much already has to be done. Do you see a need for more interboard cooperation? Why and how? And in what specific areas? Peggy Chapman Nancy Rhodes J Rita Wilkins Chapman: See question number three. Rhodes: Basically, I think wc have the co-operation wc need. Judicial needs close communication with Rep Council and has it in the committees, COP and Rules Committee. Through both of these Judicial recommends changes in rules to Rep. Remember the new drinking policy orgiginatcd in COP. The president's attendance at Judicial meetings also maintains close communication channels between the two boards. There is need of close co-operation, too, with House Council because of the present division in dorm responsibilities between hall judicial and house council representative. At times there has been need for better communication here. Judicial has already recommended to House Council that joint meetings be held when House Council is discussing issues relevant to Judicial. Wilkins: More interboard cooperation would certainly be very valuable. I would like to see more committees composed of students from all the boards and a little more time spent informing each board what the other boards arc doing. I think this would lead to a little more understanding within student government itself and ultimately more communication through the individual board members to the general student body. A more indicative sampling of opinion and suggestions and less doubling of effort would result. PAGE 4 THE PROFILE EDITOR ASSOCIATE EDITOR BUSINESS MANAGER SANDRA EARLEY KAY O'BRIANT SHARON PLEMONS Levy reveals candidates ' reluctance to face questions THE I PROFILE Copy Features Campus News Advertising Circulation Elizabeth Mathes Beverly Walker Alexa Mcintosh Catherine Auman Tyler McFadden Views expressed in the editorial section of this publication are those of the majority of the editorial staff, unless signed by the author. They do not necessarily represent the opinion of the administration or the student body. Entered as second class mail at the Decatur, Ga. f Post Office. To the Editor: A recent "feud" on campus between the candidates for major student government offices and the Porfile has prompted this letter in the bope that the problem may be brought to the attention of the student body and avoided in the future. Last quarter, the Profile decided to change the format of the annual election issue so that candidates would submit snswers to questions of student interest rather than the traditional articles which were, in essence, nothing more than a re-hash of their speech. After making some adjustments to accomodate criticism offered by present student involving Profile me nine is aim candidates, but never other members of the student body. Eventually , afjfel , pressure from critical students and members ot the stalt who took great / . . . c D ^ I k;..u forced concessions trom the Profile, the candidates agreed to answer the government officers, the Profile proceeded to implement its plans. The questions were written by care to formulate questions which were directed at theproblems that the new officers would face. In order to offer the best possible selection of questions, they made it a point to consult others in areas where they felt less familiar. I, myself, was among those consulted and felt that both the idea and the questions were excellent. The day before the questions were to be distributed, the editor received a letter signed by all the candidates in which they refused to answer the questions which they, as yet, had not even seen. A series of meetings was held during the following week, Candidates disagree... (CONT. FROM P. 1) I think the committee could work conveniently with Miss Murphy, through the Vocational Guidance Office, for that is an excellent location, with optimum space for publicity. And I would like to see the present Ex change/ Intercollegiate Committee become active in establishing contact with other colleges and universities in the area-I think we could benefit from some meaningful communication here. Yet, I do feel that this "out-reaching" move should not take priority over internal reform. A balance of emphasis will be necessary. What is your position on the National Student Association at Agnes Scott? Should the college belong only to the National Student Institute, the service organ, or should it also belong to the National Student Association, the politically active half? Why or why not? Do you plan to attend the NSA summer congress, if elected? Brown: One of our major complaints at Scott has been that we lead sheltered lives. The ironic thing is that the majority of us when given an opportunity to get "outside" don't really want to. ...or at least don't make an effort to. The National Student Institute affords good opportunity for communication between schools; they have valuable information on discount programs, etc. As far as NSA (I'm speaking here of the "Politically active half) goes, it depends on whether we want to continue "sheltering" ' ourselves or not Ultimately, the decision belongs to the student body. Personally , I don't think we've put as much into our work with NSA as we could have in the past. I understand that generally ASC would probably be in the minority in NSA voting, but that in itself is certainly no reason for withdrawal . Financially, withdrawal would help our already tight budget. Yet I think we should try putting more unused services is consequently used to support the politically active half of NSA whose activities have neither been reported to nor voted on by the Agnes Scott student body. Unless interest and participation in the NSA activities can be instigated on the ASC campus, then Agnes Scott's membership in NSA is invalid. Perhaps one way of insuring that students participate more actively in NSA functions would be to make NSA a minor board with elected class representatives. If elected, I do not plan to attend the NSA summer congress for two reasons: (1) I will be working and it would be impossible for me to take a two-week vacation, and (2) I feel that the summer congress, a large expenditure of money of 750 students, is to the benefit of only two students. Kenyon: I should like to see Agnes Scott remain a member of the National Student Association, for I feel that we need this contact with the national collegiate community. We need to recognize our relationship to this "larger" group in order to understand our part in our own campus community. And, too, I feel that Agnes Scott-with other small liberal arts schools-needs to be heard more in this organization. We need to be more aware of the issues, so that we can take a responsible stand. NSA offers a great number of benefits which we might use more advantageously, were we aware i of them. Therefore, I want to see more emphasis of the issues and opportunities of this organization. We need this "larger" community perspective, and that group needs to hear from us. That organization cannot speak for the American students until the different segments speak up-we have an obligation to make ourselves heard, rather than to sit back and criticize. Since Rep Council is the focal point effort into NSA (including, if possible, of student government at Agnes Scott having the student body vote on issues would it be possible, and if so how, to learning which comes as a result of wide but no representation" is phrase tends to decentralize student interests, is the most effective. Each board must work autonomously within its own area. Yet the diversity of interests is contained within the structure of Rep Council itself. Board presidents arc responsible not only to their own boards, for controlling the social, athletic, or religious areas of student life, but they are also responsible to the Student Government Association as a whole. Rep Council is the focal point of student government but it must not focus too intensely on itself lest it become too narrow to administer effectively to all areas of student living. Kenyon: I would not favor such a move. I don't think this "centralization" is either necessary or feasible-I can't see how it would help with "the promotion of student interests" in the least. Rep Council serves as the "focal point" of legislative action-it is not, and cannot become, the "focal point" of all student activities. Were the other five boards to be "subordinated" (and how "subordinate" them other than by making them into committees? Heavens! we have too many of those already!), they would lose much of their power and independence. "Student interests" are far better advanced and protected with the system as it now works. What is your concept of the direction that student government should take in planning for the future? What kind of school do you expect Agnes Scott to be in ten years? Twenty-five years? How does your plan for student government fit in with this conception? Brown: I think that Student Government is working and should work in the direction of making Scott a place in which students can, with as ^ qucst i on in response to number few restrictions as possible, carry on onc . Broader-based committees would the "pursuit of knowledge." I am br ing m the more widely-varying using knowledge in a board sense here opinions that you speak of her. to include not only learning in a classroom situations, but also the type Guill: "A lot of representatives, fact, initiate it. Policies which grant more freedom for individual decisions and responsibilities are presently under considerations and will receive more attention in the future. Kenyon: Student government can plan for the future only by preparing for changes that will become necessary-and this "preparing" can best be accomplished by keeping all present channels working and by opening new ones. For instance, I feel that the Board of Trustees needs now to have mof contact with students, in order for us to understand each other better. But these plans can be made only after we have considered what kind of college Agnes Scott is-what it stands for now and what it should continue to stand for in the future. I think student government should lead in such an evaluation, but the interest and participation of the whole college community will be vitally important. I would hope that in the next 10-25 years Agnes Scott will continue to uphold the high standards of academic and personal integrity which make it such a fine institution now. This "special" combination seems to be disappearing from other institutions, but I hope it can remain alive here. The close relationships between faculty, administration, and the students have "saved" this so far-T hope that these relationships will not break down. Many students seem to feel that they have "a lot of representatives, but no representation." What do you think of this assessment? Will you work to implement and improve communication between Rep Council and the individual student? How? Will you make a conscious effort to bring in dissident opinions? How? Brown: I have generally answered which will come before the Congress) subordinate the functions of other and then it we find that we are not boards to Rep Council in order to "gaining' proportionately, we ought centralize the promotion of student to reconsider our membership. For the time being, then, I am in favor of belonging to both branches. At this point, I have no idea as to whether 111 be able to attend the Summer Congress. Guill: It is my understanding that it is impossible for a college to belong only to the service organ of NSA. Fach college must belong to the politically active half of NSA as well. Though NSA has a great deal to offer college Students in terms of services, I feel that Agnes Scott should drop her membership in NSA for two major reasons: ( 1 ) Agnes Scott spends approximately four hundred dollars yearly for her membership in NSA and fails to receive, due to her own lack of interest, an adequate return, and (2) that the money spent for interests? Would you be in favor of such a move? Brown: I'm not sure I understand the question. Personally I think the division of labor now represented by the boards is the most efficient for our particular situation. Presidents of boards must submit changes in their constitutions to Rep and are present at Rep Council meetings anywav. I don't really think any more centralization Ls necessary. Guill: It would be possible to subordinate the functions of other boards to Rep Council. But such a move, in terms of centralizing the promotion of student interests, would be self-defeating. It would weaken the other boards into ineffectiveness and probe an administrative headache for the resulting unwieldy Rep Council. The present structure, while it experiences with people. I think, to this end, that the student body will become less and less homogeneous in the years to come and that off-campus activities will increase. Guill: It Ls impossible to formulate a precise picture of Agnes Scott twenty-five years from now. One would have to deal in "it would possibly /probably bc's" and such speculation would cither be too conservative or close to science fiction. But if one can accurately judge from the trends of the last twenty-fives, then liberalization is the key word to the future. There will possibly be a general decrease in the regulating of each student's social and off-campus life. The emphasis will possibly be shifted from conformity in social living to individuality in academic endeavor. Student government, which is responsible for shaping the policies and regulations for student life, will necessarily move in this direction, in which has become loosely accepted as true without much thoughtgiven to its basis. In the questionnaire distributed by Representative Council in the spring of 1968, the majority of the students answered that they felt adequately represented by their class representatives, by Board Presidents, and by House Presidents. Furthermore, the majority of the students answered that they felt free to come to Representative Council with questions and suggestions. Finally, the majority of the students replied that they were aware of the work being done by Rep Council. It would seem, then, that the statement only applies to a minority of students. Yet this minority is vitally important. The final questions is then, whether it is through the fault of Rep Council that there arc some who feel this way or whether it is through the fault of the individual student who fails in her responsibility (CONT. ON P. 5) questions. However, just because the answers were finally obtained is no reason to "brush the issue under the rug" and pretend that it never happened. Rather, the nature of this incident makes it imperative that we bring the circumstances out into the open and allow the student body to express its views. The candidates' letter was a result of their desire to present a "united front" to the students. It has always been my impression that in a free election, the voters arc to have a choice between representatives of different views. Obviously, this is impossible when the candidates make joint decisions, thus deciding among themselves the basis, and perhaps outcome, of the election. Moreover, the fact that the decisions were reached at secret meetings meetings held without student body knowledge and without consideration for the opinions of non-candidatcs---further removed control of the elections from the hands of those to whom it belonged, the student voters. Several reasons were advanced in defense of the candidates' action. First, the candidates claimed that they did not feel they had adequate time to deal with comprehensive questions. This argument can certainly be challenged on several levels. To begin with, no one, least of all the Profile, wanted detailed answeres that would inhibit flexibility in the coming year. The object of the questions was merely to have the candidates address themselves to major issues in general terms, providing an overview of their attitude toward policy matters. Speaking as someone who considered running for a major office, I can testify to the fact that these questions were ones which the individual should have considered as a factor in her decision to run, not as an afterthought to her announcement. Anyone who finds herself facing these questions for the first time has no business presuming to take office. Therefore, the candidates surely should have had time to offer a brief statement of an opinion they already should have formulated. Moreover, the time factor remains a questionable one when it is remembered that the candidates would have had to submit original articles in lieu of the questions. Were these articles preferable because they would demand only glittering generalities instead of direct responses? Further, some felt that the refusal was "protecting" the candidates. Why is it that they need protection instead of publicity and exposure? Any fear of journalistic bias should have been alleviated by the Profile's assurance that responses would be printed in full and without any form of editing. It would seem that the candidates were being protected from the constituents perhaps because the voters would have expected more than the candidates were prepared to offer? These observations arc merely the suppositions and opinions of one student who was outside the closed circle of candidates and therefore did not have direct access to the meetings, despite the fact that she very much wanted to. However, I would hope that they are a valid appraisal of the relationship between student government and the students- a relationship that is not only distant buy virtually nonexistent. Perhaps it is time that we let what has happened during this campaign show us the major problem areas and move to correct them. In the future, let us sec that communication among officers, candidates, and constituents is such that elections will be completely free and open, and that it will be the norm, not the exception, for those choosing to run for positions of responsibility to face issues squarely and directly. Respectfully, Janet Levy, '70 PAGE 5 R E Week still valid ? Is Christian Association here still associated with the YWCA as it has been in the past? What purpose does this connection serve for your board? For the individual Agnes Scott student? Betsy Brewer: CA is financially affiliated with the YWCA. The connection will continue to enable the board and particularly the individual Agnes Scott student to discover the various programs and workshops offered by the YWCA. Especially of interest to the student are the summer programs, i.e. the urban city project in New York, the Washington, D.C. study project, and the overseas projects. Judy Mauldin: CA is. at (he present time, affiliated with the YWCA. We contribute $150 a year as dues and, in return, have access to all YWCA programs and activities. The YWCA has changed their charter in the last few years so that they no longer consider Christianity as a vital part of their program. Because of this change, because we have not benefited from Y programs in recent years and because our purpose on campus is not closely related to that of the Y, I think this connection is of little actual value to our campus. I do not think the potential value of our exploiting the Y's programs is very great. 1 would, then, suggest that we withdraw our affiliate membership from the Y. Is Religious Emphasis Week still valid at ASC? Why or why not? Do you plan to continue it as it now is or do you plan to modify it? If so, how? Brewer: RE Week is valid anywhere because religion is a prevalent part of our culture. If RE Week just becomes a look at religion in the contemporary world rather than a personal inquiry, it still is valid. See General Questions, number 3, part 3 for the remainder of the answer. Mauldin: I think RE Week is definitely still valid and will be as long as even one person is seeking a better understanding of Christianity. The schedule for RE Week is modified from year to year in accordance with each speaker's talents and special interests. I would suggest that the same basic format be maintained, but that we have only four chapel talks and more opportunities for students to interact personally with the speaker. Speaking in the framework of our Reconciliation theme I think RE Week should be a time which emphasizes man to God relationships. I think students would welcome an opportunity to take a break from the perennial lecture situation and really have an opportunity to discuss personal questions and theological ideas with the speaker. I think the chapel times should be an opportunity for worship, not necessarily in a prayer-sermon-benediction sense but in a i meditative self-expressive, sharing mode. What purpose does CA serve on this campus? In view of the col- lege's avowed position in favor of education based on Christian prin- ciples, do you donsider CA an organ of official policy? If not, what is CA? Can it be considered a club? If so , how does it differ from other clubs like Canterbury Club, Westminster Fellowship, etc.? Brewer: CA serves as an organ of inquiry into the faith and, thus, an organ of response to the world, particularly to this campus. 1 cannot understand CA as either an organ of official policy or as a club like the Westminster Fellowship. ..because CA, by being a responsive organ of awareness including all members of the campus, is much more flexible and all-encompassing than either definition implies. Mauldin: CA has attempted to serve every year whatever that year's board considered its purpose to be. And, in fact, the question of CA's purpose has been discussed inconclusively by every board for at least fifteen years. I surmise, therefore, that CA's purpose has been highly contingent upon each year's board president and cabinet. Personally, 1 subscribe to the stated purpose of CA in the Constitution. As president, I would lead CA, "believeing that the Christian faith is vital to a full and meaningful life." The Constitution continues, saying that CA "Strives through its program of worship, study, and action to know God in Jesus Christ and to deepen the commitment of its members." 1 think in that people have spiritual needs as well as social and athletic ones, CA can in this way serve a very meaningful purpose on our campus. 1 am not sure that I completely understand the implications of the question, "do you consider CA an organ of official policy?" CA is not under administrative direction, but is a part of the College's attempt to nurture interest in Christianity. I think CA's open membership and its heterogeneity prevent it from being classified as a club. Is CAconcerned with organized religion or a more generalized sy- stem of Christian ethics? Brewer: CA is concerned with both secondarily, but not primarily. Its main concern is an inquiry into the meaning of faith. Mauldin: CA is concerned with individual needs and any means by which they can be met. We both write letters to freshmen inviting them to attend Church in Atlanta, and explore Christian ethics in a less traditional way. To what do youattributethe campus apathy toward CA as evid- enced in its financial crises, attendance at chapels, and response to the King Scholarship Fund? What do you propose to do about it? Brewer: I am not so sure that there is campus apathy toward CA, or at least, it cannot be evidenced by these three things. First, there is not a financial crisis presently. Secondly, attendance at chapels is not the best anyway. Finally, the King Scholarship Fund at its initiation accumulated over $ 1 00. The campus does need to know that CA can finance its program only by individual pledges, that information can easily be made concerning the scholarship, and that chapel programs can and will continue to provide relevant programs. Mauldin: One must consider these "evidences of campus apathy toward CA" against the background of "campus apathy," (or is it tiredness?) as a whole. People do not go to chapels anymore no matter how good they are. Even Hub parties are poorly attended. I think there has been a shift in campus sentiment toward attending chapels, vespters, and complins which must be recognized. 1 would agree with the suggestions of this year's board that the number of chapels be reduced to perhaps two a month, witti vespters changed to a worship experience during chapel period. Complins could be kept to a small number of people in order to foster discussion and interpersonal reaction. CA service projects have, however, shown a high degree of participation this year and are an important way in which apathy is overcome by action. Has CA ever attempted to analyse the required Bible course at ASC in terms of its importance to students here and the board's pur- pose? Should the board concern itself in this area? Brewer: I do not know if CA has ever attempted to analyze the required Bible course, but I see no need for CA to primarily or secondarily concern itself with the academic, unless individuals want to discuss an issue pertaining to the academic. Mauldin: I do not believe that CA cabinet has formally discussed the required Bible course. This seems as important concern for individual students through committee, to pursue, though not especially appropriate for CA as a board Do you think CA can actively lead capmus reform? If so, how? Brewer: I do not believe it is CA's responsibility to lead campus reform, but CA may be a place for discussion about reform. Mauldin: No. Betsy Brewer Judy Mauldin Candidates disagree... (CONT. FROM P. 4) as a in ember of the Student Government Assoeiation. Rep Council has made a conscious effort, and will continue both to communicate with the individual student and to bring in dissident opinions. The agenda for each meeting is posted in advance; the minutes from each meeting are posted on class bulletin boards, on the Student Government bulletin board, and on each hall: not only are the meetings of Rep Council itself always open to students but also the meetings of the committees of Rep Council arc always open. And finally, the representatives themselves arc the most direct channels to Rep Council. Yet the fact remains that when a quorum is needed to vote on Student Government business, it can rarely be obtained. The channels for communications between the student and Rep Council are there. But the student, as well as Rep Council itself, must work together to keep these channels clear. Kenyon: I realize that some students teel they have "a lot of representatives, but no representation," but I believe that this "feeling" is the result of a lack of communication, between the representatives and these students, and not the result of representatives who are unwilling to listen to student opinions. 1 would like to concentrate on widening these channels-so that other students might understand the actions of Rep Council and so that the representatives can "hear" student feeling better. The PROFILE and student government might work together to inform students of the issues as they arc to be discussed in Rep Council. Those students with "dissident" opinions ought to feel free to come to the Rep meetings to voice thcir (CONT. ON P. 8) General Questions Why do you want to hold this office? Betsy Brewer: For me, this office means an inquiry into the Christian faith by means of group inter-action. Judy Mauldin: Having served as a CAR my sophomore year, and as chairman of RE Week on the cabinet this year, I feel qualified to handle the administrative duties of the CA Presidency. More than this, because I am a Christian I would like to devote my time next year toward working in an area which is vitally important to me - that of learning more about God through Jesus Christ. What is your basic concept of your board or office? What does it do on the Agnes Scott campus, especially for the individual student? Brewer: This C. A. board (and the office of CA. President) functions as an organ of inquiry into faith and, because of this, CA. is an organ of response to the world, particularly to the Agnes Scott campus. On the campus, the board strives to give the individual an opportunity for expression in worship, service, and in discussions with interesting speakers. Mauldin: CA is an open-ended Board which is directed by a fourteen member cabinet, but which consists of any student who feels in accordance with its purpose. The activities of the board seek to fulfill the needs of the student body. I think the most important aspect of CA is in personal inter-action. I believe that CA has truly been a reconciling force on our campus this year, not only in its formal activities, but through the individual concern which it has nurtured and which must develop on a pcrson-to-pcrson basis. What innovations do you have planned for your board? Why? How? Brewer: Innovations: 1. It is necessary to make well-known the fact that board meetings are open to all because the discussions held concerning the meaning of faith, the validity of faith, the who and what of God and Jesus Christ, the meaning of race, the curiosity of homosexuality, the problem of alcoholism, etc. need to involve interested people with different opinions. CA. can very well be a center for campus opinions on any topic. 2. Guests, i.e. doctors, lawyers, clergymen, teachers, social workers, "rocking chair philosophers," etc., should be invited to board meetings for needed information and opinions. 3. I would like to explore the question, "What docs the campus want in a Religious Emphasis Week?" Perhaps new possibilities would involve more and different kinds of speakers for a symposium effect, or a different type of speaker, e.g. Gcrt Bchanna, for a few days (as suggested by the present board). 4. I suggest that the concept of CAR be revised in order to be more effective on this campus. Perhaps the CAR could become not a person who feels compelled to hold complin once a month, but a person who "feels out" The needs of the hall or cottage whether they be in the form of a complin or a party, or whether they are individual or collective needs. The CAR must feel that she can do this in her own way. Mauldin: Because student needs seem no longer to be fulfilled by weekly chapel periods, I would suggest that CA chapels be reduced to two per month. Perhaps Sunday night vespers could be changed to chapel period and be a type of worship experience. I would like to have more creative worship services where students and faculty members participate. I would also like to sec CA representatives more active in board activities. They could act as rotating committee members under the direction of the various cabinet members. Complins should consist of smaller groups, but continue to meet about once a month. Next year CA could sponsor a scries of student discussions on various theological ideas, and Bible study groups for those students who are interested. This type of activity has long been neglected by CA and a need for it has been expressed by several students. This year's theme of reconciliation seems to me so timely and relevant that I would like next year's board to pursue it farther, but perhaps, this time, with greater emphasis on Man-God relationships. Do you see a need for more inter board cooperation? Why and how? And in what specific areas? Brewer: At this point, I do not sec a great deal of need for extra interboard cooperation other than the "spiritual cooperation" exemplified in Rep Council. This does not mean that I am against interboard cooperation, but just that I presently cannot sec any specific areas that need interboard cooperation. Mauldin: Interboard cooperation is an excellent way of bringing together the ideas, suggestions, and resources of the various boards. I think some kind of seminar or chapel scries on mental health would be the kind of thing to which several boards could effectively contribute. PAGE f> THE PROFILE AA Decline in class spirit ? Candidates explain why Garnett Bowers General Questions Why do you want to hold this office? Elizabeth Crum: I would like to be President of Athictic Association mainly because I am interested in AA, and because I think I am qualified to do the work. I feel that Athictic Association makes major contributions to Agnes Scott campus life, by adding to class spirit and to the personal fulfillment of the students. Therefore I want to give it my f idlest support. And because I feel I am qualified, having served on the board two years, this year as secretary, to handle the duties of the office, 1 would like to be President of AA. What is your basic concept of your board or office? What does it do on the Agnes Scott campus, especially for the individual student? Crum: My concept of Athletic Association is a board that should "promote interest in athletic and recreational activities among the students, as a means of creating spirit, encouraging good sportsmanship, and developing physical fitness." (AA Constitution, Article II) In other words, A A is not out to make physical fitness nuts out of the campus but to offer athletic and recreational activities for those who want to take advantage of them. AA encourages each student to participate in athletic activities as a benefit to her own health. For the individual student, A.A. offers an active outlet for the physical tension, a way to get involved in either campus activities or outside activities. ' What innovations do you have planned for your board? Why? How? Crum: I have no major innovations planned for A A. I think the board's activities this year have been well planned and carried out. To handle much more, the board would have to be expanded. There are a few procedural changes and activities I would like to see modified. I think that a definite rule for practices for class competition should be formulated. The point system for athletic activities needs to be reworked. Mainly I would like to see A A offer more recreational activities. For example, a ski trip for early next winter quarter. Do you see a need for more interboard cooperation? Why and how? And in what specific areas? Crum: I think interboard cooperation has been Quite -ood this year. If next year's Student Government can work together as well as this year's student government will continue to function smoothly. Possibly, interboard cooperation can be expanded, partieularly between Athletic Association, Christian Association and Social Council, in the areas of service projects and recreational projects. Specifically, interboard cooperation in these areas will enable Student Government to reach a larger portion of the student body; furthermore, it will facilitate the planning of larger projects. Editor*! Note: Garnett Bowers and Martha Smith preferred to answeT the general questions in several introductory paragraphs rather than responding to each question individually. The following is the text of their comments. Garnett Bowers: My basic concept of AA is an organization to promote ithlctic activities on campus,among the students, for the students. Furthermore, this is what I think AA does. All types of activities are open to the individual student everything from a fast game of basketball, to a quiet afternoon in the exercise lab, to the roar of singing at a Hub party. The major innovations i have planned for AA arc to initiate special activities sooner and to publicize all activities more extensively. Thi^ would allow the students, as well as the A A board, to plan ahead for ski and canoe trips, and for better participation in all areas. I would also like to have more open gym nights and morllub parties. Both of these provide good outlets for energy built up during studying. I think that interboard cooperation is necessary in all areas and can best be achieved in Rep Council. Since Scott is such a small community, I think everybody can, and should, have a voice in what is happening. Since the boards represent various aspects of the student body in general I think they should always work together in order to discover what is "best for the whole student body. 1 sec AA as a very important organization on the Scott campus, but only if each student is aware of its many activities and takes advantage of them. I hope to promote A A so that every student knows of the facilities available-This, however, is not enough. The students must participate in these activities. Any program from AA is successful only if the students know what is going to happen when, and join in. .."en masse". Martha Smith: Athletic Association is a valid and vital board on this campus. AA promotes interest in recreational and athictic activities to create spirit and encourage good sportsmanship. AA attempts to reach the individaul student not limiting itself to improving the capabilities of the athletically-inclined by providing many and varied activities for the students. I am seeking the office of President of AA because I would like to contribute my share in continuing and improving AA's position as a vital board on the Agnes Scott campus. There are several innovations I would like to make on AA if elected President. There is a definite need for a re-evaluation of the Spirit Trophy. Is the Spirit Trophy as meaningful as it has been in the past or is it merely a worn out tradition? I believe the Spirit Trophy is meaningful and should be continued but a new means of selecting the receiver should be established to provide the necessary incentive to the classes. I would also like to have a field day during Spring Quarter. Also a pool tournement would possibly increase hub participation. There is a need for more interboard cooperation. The President of AA as a voting member of Rep Council should reflect not only her own ideas and opinions but those of her board. A brief period should be Set aside in each AA meeting for the discussion of upcoming Rep Council topics so that the President can cast her vote as representative of her board. This is the main avenue for more interboard cooperation. Do you see AA as a major avenue for inter-collegiate contacts? Would you work to increase or modify these contacts in any way? How? Garnett Bowers: I think AA should work primarily towards individual and inter-class activities on campus. If inter-collegiate contacts would interfere with any campus activity, I don't think we should participate. Elizabeth Crum Martha Smith However, I think inter-collegiate contacts are good and should be promoted in relation to student (the players as well as the spectators) interests and time available. Elizabeth Crum: The way Agnes Scott is structured now, I do not see AA as a major avenue for inter-collegiate contacts. Granted, athletics has possibilities for inter-collegiate contacts. But Agnes Scott is an academic and not an athletic institution. To become a major avenue for inter-collegiate contacts, Scott would have to have a varsity team for each of the major sports that practices regularly and plays a set schedule of games. As students are well aware, the academic program of Agnes Scott is not geared to this type athletic program. I would like to see Agnes Scott concentrate less on matches with individual colleges and more on sponsoring or attending one or two, at the most, playdays or tournaments. Martha Smith: AA is an avenue for inter-collegiate contacts only on a limited basis. There rs not enough time available for the amount of practice necessary for serious inter-collegiate competition. Inter-collegiate contacts on the basis of recreational enjoyment such as playdays should be continued and encouraged. Do you think there has been a decline in class spirit, as evidenced in attendance at class athletic events and traditional ASC activities? Why or why not? Bowers: Yes, I do think that there has been a decline in class spirit, especially at the weekly class games. I would contribute this general lack of attendance partly to the five-day week, and partly to lack of interest. This is a difficult problem which involves the best times to have games. Due to labs throughout the week, Friday remains the best single choice, but it is obviously not good enough. I would like to find a time that is more suitable, if at all possible. In spite of the trouble with class games, I think the Hub parties have been a great success and displayed individual spirit. Although there have only been a few parties this year, everybody who came brought enough spirit and laughter to contribute to a good time. Crum: Yes, I think there has been a definite decline in class spirit. In fact at the 1968 Student Government retreat and at the 1969 retreat, AA discussed this problem, trying to pin point the reason for the decline and then to revive spirit. This loss of spirit has been particularly noticeable during basketball this year. With the new five day week so many girls are leaving for the weekend that it was hard for the classes to field teams, much less spectators. Smith: There has been a decline in class spirit in terms of class athictic events and traditional ASC activities. Class spirit has declined not on the part of the participating teams but because of the lack of interest by the students as a whole who fail to provide spirit as spectators. Class spirit in Black Cat was considerably mitigated by the weather conditions this year. The excitement and rivalry of the first hockey game which had to be cancelled this year adds greatly to class spirit and introduces the Freshmen to class competition and spirit. Also, not having the Hub during Fall Quarter has contributed to the decline in class spirit. Another factor is that the spirit trophy did not seem as indicative of spirit as it has in the past which has dampened the classes' efforts to promote spirit. Finally, the decline in class spirit is a part of the overall lack of enthusiasm which prevails on campus. Do you think class spirit is the major component of enthusiasm for AA or is it based on personal fulfillment? Bowers: I think individuals come out for AA both for class spirit and for personal fulfillment, and those who come out at first just for one of these reasons usually find that they are soon joining in for both self and class. Like anything else, a person does not know how much she can get out of AA activities until she puts something in. Crum: I think a combination of class spirit and personal fulfillment are the major components of enthusiasm for AA. There are girls who participate in athletic events neither for personal fulfillment or enjoyment, but because the class needs them to have a team. There are probably many more girls who participate in athletic events for personal fulfillment rather than class spirit. This is particularly true with the individual sports, where the time played could be recorded for AA points; however, the majority of individual AA points that are earned are rarely recorded. Smith: Enthusiasm for A A is a combination of personal fulfillment and class spirit. Sutdetns who participate in the class team sports enjoy playing on a personal level. The group interaction and sense of playing together as a team for a common cause, which teams sports provide, engenders class spirit. What role should AA play in charity projects like that at the Juvenile Home? Should these be left to CA? Why or why not? Do you, if eiected, feel a major commitment to encourage students to involve themselves in activities off-campus? Bowers: I do not think that charity projects should be left entirely to CA. AA and CA could easily, and profitably, work together on these projects, since both organizations have diverse, yet needed, abilities to offer. I feel that any student who really wants to should become involved in off-campus activities and AA should continue to help sponsor such programs as the Juvenile Home. Crum: I think in projects like the Juvenile Home AA should definitely participate. AA offers these young girls athletic and recreational activities that they would otherwise miss. I think with service projects there is room for interboard cooperation. For example, with the Juvenile Home project, during winter quarter when the weather is too bad to go outside, Social Council could instruct the girls in grooming and etiquette. I think that involvement in off-campus activities is strictly up to the individual student. The only encouragement necessary for interested students is making off-campus activities available. Smith. AA\s role in projects such as the Juvenile Home should be on a specific and limited basis so that these projects will not conflict with the functions of CA. It was felt that the Juvenile Home project would not only provide service but also recreation which is a goal of A A. If elected, my major committment will not be involvement in off-campus activities but the fostering of spirit and athletic participation which I feel is the major goal of A A. (CONT. ON P. S) PAGE 7 Changes needed in Dance Weekend ? When Jess than a third of the Agnes Scot i populationattended the recent Winter Dance Weekend, how can you justify expending so much time, effort and money on this project? What are some improvements or alternatives to this weekend? Please be specific. Mary Wills Hatfield!: The Winter Dance is well justifiedby the mere fact that quite a few students enjoy this activity and deem it an important event of the school year. There is, however, some need for alternations in the planning of the Winter Wcek-End. At the present, we are involved in correspondence with several other women's colleges to find out how other schools set up plans for any activities similar to our Winter Dan One alteration we might make in our planning is a change in the financial means for the dances. One suggestion has been that we receive a supplement in our budget, specifically for the dances. Social Council hopes to offer the best sort of activities during the Winter Wcek-End, so that the week-end will be even more inviting to students. Marilyn Merrell: justifying Winter Dance Weekend is quite simple to me. Those girls who come, buy tickets and their money plus a supporting dance fund finances the dances. The time and efforts expended on the Weekend are worthwhile in my opinion even if only-third of the student body participates. Yet as mentioned earlier, Social Council or any other board cannot reach that segment of the student body who is unwilling to participate. However, I truly doubt that over two-thirds of the student body is apathetic toward Winter Weekend or anything else. Therefore, since the Board must always strive first and foremost to the majority of the student body, it seems apparent that to serve. Social Council must again objectively scrutinize the whole idea of Dance Weekend. Then if revamping, reorganizing, rearranging is needed, certainly the very remedy must be sought and applied. One specific improvement in Winter Weekend would be more money, which in turn means continuing with big-name bands, continuing to sell split tickets without loss, and numerous additives. The expense incurred with such an event as our Winter Dance Weekend is incredible. Raising the cost of tickets to $10 would help, but still would not raise sufficient funds to present the kind of weekend in which I feel more Scott studentswouldparticipatc. Not only Social Council but the entire student body should examine the concept of Winter Dance Mary Wills Hatfield Weekend. Then if the majority of students feel another type of social activity would better benefit the campus, Social Council could initiate another yearly event to replace it. Do you think Social Council should attempt to offer any alternatives to the fraternity party syndrome? If so, how? Do you have any specific suggestions to offer especially for the freshman, in terms of mixers etc.? Do you think students would respond to such a program? Hatfield: Social Council can not be any means compete with the fraternities, but there arc certain social activities which the Board offers that the fraternities do not provide. For example, what fraternity has sponsored a college bowl game, or even a dating game? As for any suggestions which our Board might offer along the line of mixers, we might say that Social Council docs not provide simply "mixers qua mixers" because in the past they have proved unsuccessful, according to the students' response. Merrell: No, Social Council should offer no alternatives to the fraternity party syndrome Especially for freshmen a mixer could be arranged with Tech's and Emory's frat pledge classes, soon after pledge weeks are over in the early fall. At this time of the quarter freshmen are just begmning to get ready to meet some more new people Mixers per sc offer little motivation to upper classmen. H owever, if there is enough interest, I would personally like to sec some mixers planned for Scott, Emory, Tech, Ga. State, Oglethorpe all together with possibly swap-around nights -i.e. ,go to different campuses", here intcrboard cooperation could aid in planning mixers with more than mere bridge and popcorn. But instead if some types of entertainment, whether lecture, discussion, athletics, or whatever, were interspersed, then appeal would proliferate. One stigma about these get-togethers must be dispelled prior to hope for much participation. And this is the idea that Socaal Council is hereby running a dating bureau through mixers or the old Hub Casuals. On the other hand, the Board is actually attempting to provide an environment in which Scotties can meet boys on a friendship basjs, not just to find a date for Saturday night. Do you think Social Council should assert itself in effecting social change on the campus? What about in the areas of the drinking policy and the apartment policy specifically? Would you work for change in these areas? Hatfield: Yes. Social Council should assert itself in activity involving social change. If the Board is to function as an effective social board, it should constantly sense the needs of the students and should be actively involved in providing for all these needs. The changes which have been recently made in the drinking and apartment policies, for example, arc steps forward; but if further changes should present themselves as necessary, campus leaders, including members of Boards concerned with the area of campus life which is in question, should exercise their power in bringing about these changes. Merrell: Since Social Council has a purpose to support and work with other boards, including ludicial and Representative Councils, then the Board docs help formulate and modify policies, though rather indirectly. Concerning the drinking and apartment policies, I sec no needed changes presently. Marilyn Merrell It seems that Social Council perhaps encourages selfishness in the Agnes Scott student in the sense of focusing only on ways to have a more fun and dates. What is your response to this statement? Should Social Council attempt charity projects of any kind or attempt to involve the student off-campus in ways other than dating and so-called social events? Hatfield: My response to the statement, "It seems that Social Council perhaps encourages selfishness..., " is that the questioner obviously has shown through her choice of words a lack of understanding of our Board's actual program. The Board is not "focusing only on ways to have more fun and dates." Providing for the students' social needs usually entails providing for the students a more casual atmosphere as a sort of break from the academic life. The activities that Social Council plans can or cannot involve dates.There is usually a wide enough variety of activities (e.g., from the bridge tournament to Student-Faculty Coffees to the Winter Dance), so that aim o sail students can actively participate in and enjoy some of the social events planned by the Board. As to Social Council's involve- ment, off campus one might comment that in the past there has been no real off-eampu- involvement because eharity projects, for example, are much better suited to the activities of CA than to those of Social Council. Our Board, as is stated in our purpose, should focus toward service to the campus community within our specific capacities. Merrell- niy response: enraged and unbelieving. Social Council seeks to unite the student body with itself, with its faculty and staff, and with the outside world through social activities and events. Therefore, I seriously question the idea that Social Council focuses attention primarily towards dating. On the other hand, in many campus discussions the solution to what is missing at Scott and what causes the winter quarter blues has been lack of men as friends, not just dates. Therefore, in our situation the responsibilities of some means for meeting boys on a friendship basis falls upon Social Council. I personally feel that eharity projects arc needed and should be available for student participation. However, I do not feel that these projects are solely Social Council's domain, ere again Social Council through intcrboard cooperation could help sponsor and lead the campus in eharity projects. The popularity of the Hub seems to have declined markedly since it was not open during fall quarter and since social smokers were opened in the dorms. Can you propose any ways to use it to better advantage? Please be specific. Hatfield: the decline of the popularity of the Hub is no serious problem. The hub is merely a sort of student activities building where anyone in the campus community may go to engage in various social acitivitics, such as card games, or pool games, or just sitting and talking. The fact that the Hub could not be open during fall quarter was unfortunate because the freshmen did not become accustomed to enjoying the Hub, as people have enjoyed it in the past. However, now that the Hub is open, most likely students will gradually start going there more often. The sunbathing deck should be expecially inviting during spring quarter. The fact that we have such a well-equipped and attractive Hub, where students may go at their own will, is reason enough to say that the Hub is a benefit to the eampus, in spite of the number of students who go there regularly. Meirell: Agreed the popularity has certainly declined. However, this decline began previously and particularly with graduation of the classes of '67 and 4 68. Plus the unfortunate delay with the Hub's opening until just before finals fall quarter reinforced the habits of not going to the Hub for studying, smoking, relaxing. Possibly a Hub focus time could provide a refreshing study break and a time for everyone to gather for visiting. Each night from 5:30 to 7 p.m. have a play-time in the Hub when everyone could come together for a visit with campus friends Bridge, pool, or just watching TV offers relaxation and a convenient time to make, renew, or just sustain friendships. General Questions Why do you want to hold this office? What is your basic concept of your board or office? What does it do on the Agnes Scott campus, especially for the individual student? What innovations do you have planned for your board? Why? How? Do you see a need for more intcrboard cooperation? Why and how? And in what specific areas? Mary Wills Hatfield: This past year has been a year in which Social Council has made considerable progress in its program. This has been a year of growth and expansion. For example, the increase of the size of the Board has enabled Social Council to reach more students actively, while also contributing to a higher degree of operation and achievement. The innovations and progress made by this year's Board are to be commended, but there is still room for change and improvement. In order for Social Council to effectively fulfill it purpose of coordinating social events and providing for the social needs of the campus, the Board must be one which is sensitive to the needs of the students. The Executive Board, consisting of the four elected officers, has the responsibility of appointing Board members from students who petition for membership. This method of appointing members has proved to be an effective one, for the petitions tell which students arc interested in and qualified for Social Council work. Wc need members who will make Social Council a spirited and dynamic Board. The various committees must also be thoughtfully appointed, according to talents and interests of the members. We need a diversified yet co-operative Board next year. Not only is there need for co-operation among Board members, but there is also a need for co-operation between Social Council and the other Boards. The past Boards have worked well together to achieve many of the changes which Agnes Scott has so recently seen. Social Council, as one of the major Boards, can be quite active in other phases of campus life. With a Board which is sensitive to the social needs of the students, Social Council should be very capable of working toward further progress, for example in the social regulations. Certainly all of us hope to sec continued advancements in all phases of Agnes Scott life. With the spirit and determination of so many students, and under the guidance of capable, concerned leaders, progress will continue on our campus. Marilyn Merrell: Social Council Board is a campus organization designed to organize, lead, and direct social affairs and eneourage social involvement for all students. To be a well-rounded individial, I believe one must be able to live with and appreciate her neighbors, her community, and her world. The only way to know how to interact with society is through involvement and participation within that group. Social council's roles on our campus fulfill vital andproliferatingneeds. The various roles of the Board, as I sec them, consists of providing a means for each student to come in contact with students, faculty, and the outside world. Another purpose of Social Council as a representative campus organization is to solicit the social needs of our campus and seek ways to fulfill them. Soliciting: through Board members' recommendations as representatives of the student body, through the student body's suggestions,* through individuals' ideas. Fulfilling: through Board members 1 plans and work, through outside help, through student interest and participation. Social Council Board has many aims and goals to fulfill. Unfortunately, oftentimes wc have intcrprctatcd the fulfillment of these aims and goals in petty or unencompassing ways. Therefore, I believe Social Council should continue as wc began this year with much introspection into our projects and their purposes. Having a relatively small number of Board members, Social Council members must devote their time and energy toward fulfilling the true social interests of the students in ways which the students support, recommend, and enjoy. Social Council in my opinion needs to continue evaluating the aims and purposes, then evaluating the programs. Student opinions and suggestions should be sought, should be evaluated in light of our capacity to carry -out feasibly such ideas, then should be activated to meet the demands of the student body. Only by providing genuinely worthwhile programs can a Board expect reaction and participation. Personally, I agree to the old addage "You reap what you sow." But first our Board must provide Agnes Scott with programs from which a student can reap rewards worth the time and energy she invests in any acitvity. Specific innovations for Social Council Board arc impossible to ascertain by a "possible president" alone. Our programs require the interest time, and support of all Board members. However, in my wandering dreamy idealist thoughts, I would like to sec Social Council strive to reach more students whether it be through a watermelon race, a Spring informal dance on the hockey field, an outdoor concert, a merger with Tech for Social events, or whatever. Ironical the question about intcrboard cooperation should appear, for this concept captivated my attention long ago. Through mergers with other boards I can sec much strength for involving more students. Social Council can, and 1 believe should, work in a pivotal position helping to unite all the eampus and assist jointly other Boards, whose programs, afterall, are also social events. Social Council For example, I can imagine Social Council and Athletic Association uniting to plan a Playday in the spring-tennis, gym facilities, kick ball, all the favorite sports could be organized. Even Tech and Emory could be invited. (And not just boys, but girls too. We need to meet both factions and know both sides of the question about eocd schools.) Afterall, a "social event" docs not necessarily mean a date nor a dating service. Nor docs mere presence of a male constitute a "social event." Intcrboard cooperation could make possible many innovations for our campus. The entire campus could be united and thereby the spirit of Scott would be strcngthed if the various phases of our life (judicial, Christian, athletic, social) can be harmonized and integrated. Here again Social Council by its very nature can act as a strong integrating force to initiate this harmony between our major boards and for our campus. I wish to serve on Social Council Board in the capacity of President for several reasons. First, I believe this Board can render needed services to the student body. With its powerful potential I hope this Board realizes its capacity and activities its resources. Secondly, the programs Social Council supports have been and should continue to be closely evaluated and purpose-directed. Finally since I enjoy working with and being with people, I suppose I think everyone docs. Regardless, I do know everyone should have the chance and Social Council Board can provide that very opportunity. THE PROFILE MARCH 26, 19b 1 ) Skardon will support Sunday parietals here How do you plan to increase this year's trend toward House Presidents Couucil becoming the sixth major board? Why is such a move desirable? With major organizations on campus to represent all of the important phases of our life at ASC (academic, religious, athletic, social), there is a need to increase the trend toward making House Council into the sixth major board. The positive or negative living environment can definitely stimulate or retard the development of the individual student. As a major influence in our relationships one with another, House Council should respond to the student in her individual situation. However, at the same time there should be an increase in the trend toward giving the students as a whole more freedom with more responsibility. The centralization of dormitories can further both of these desired results. Do you favor a move toward individual dormitories becoming more self-contained and self-ruled with, for example, living rooms open at all times so that visitors could come directly to the dorm? If so, how can this plan be implemented? In favoring a move toward individual dormitories becoming more self-contained and self-ruled, I would like to see the living rooms open at more times so that visitors could come directly to the dormitories. To implement this plan, the students would have to agree to an increase in hostess duty. However, under the present situation with the living rooms used as studies and with the problem of safety, it would be impractical to open the living rooms at all times. Do you favor removing automatic penalties, like those involving the sign-out cards, from under the jurisdiction of Judicial Council to become the responsibility of House Couucil? Why or why not? Ideally, I wholeheartedly support the removing of the automatic penalties, like those involving the sign-out cards, from under the jurisdiction of Judicial Council to become the responsibility of House Council. This would enable Judicial Council to put the concept of honor in a clearer perspective and at the same time would give to House Council those issues with which it is most vitally concerned. Under the present situation, the transfer of the automative penalties from Judicial Council to House Council would first entail a restructuring of both Judicial Council and House Council and a re-evaluation of the point system. Do you foresee that House Council members will one day be elected by the student body at I favor and actively support a system of parietals at Agnes Scott so that students could entertain male visitors in their dormitory rooms. Student consent, however, must be obtained beforehand to allow male visitors in their rooms for limited lengths of time, i.e. on Sunday afternoons. With student approval and a feasible plan, this system could be extended. General Questions Sally Skardon large or by individual dormitories, rather than being appointed as they now are? Why or why not? And do you expect this change within your term in office? With the past election of House Council members by individual halls, House Council members have not proved to be enthusiastic, interested, or concerned as those who have petitioned to be appointed. The appointed members have been much more effective and have often based their selection and preference of individual dormitories on the newly-elected house president. Can House Presidents Council work for campus reform in broad areas like the apartment policy, for example? Why or why not? If you think so, how? House Presidents Council can work for campus reform in broad areas. As an important voice at ASC, House Presidents Council should always be concerned with the improvement of Agnes Scott as well as and by means of the development of the student. House Presidents Council can both initiate reform and support reform sponsored by other organizations and individuals. Would you favor a system of parietals of Agnes Scott so that students could entertain male visitors in their dorm rooms at certain hours during the week? Why or why not? If you favor such a change, would you actively work for it next year? How? Editor's note: Sally Skardon chose to write a general introduction to her candidacy for chairman of House Presidents Council rather than answering each general question separately. House Presidents Council this year has expanded into becoming the sixth major board on the Agnes Scott campus. As a vital link between the student and her environment, House Presidents Council is to be both responsible for and responsive to each student and her living situation. As a candidate for the offacc of Chairman of House Presidents Council, I will continue the move toward the centralization of dormitories and will further expand the area of freedom with responsibility. I will attempt to strengthen this board, tor it does represent a major aspect of our life at Agnes Scott College. Interboard cooperation should be increased but not to the extent that the activities of the individuals boards arc subordinated to it. Cooperation among boards can be most beneficial with well-informed members and improved communication. As a major channel of expressing student opinion, Rep Council is an effective instrument in improving interboard relations. Discussing the agenda of Rep Council and discussing other important aspects of the other boards and of House Council will permit my voting and participation at Rep Council to be representative of the opinions of my board members who are actively representing the student body. SGA General (CONT. FROM P.I ) year. It will require a "looking out" as wc look inward. And it will involve the entire campus community-a 1 k u n i te d- wc- sta ncP* e f f ort . But I do not mean to defeat individualism; on the contrary, I feel that the individuality of each student, faculty member, and administrator is just as important as the corporate community spirit. I would hope that everyone might feel free to be himself and still feel at home in the campus community. I want to work toward a real understanding of what Agnes Scott is and should be-and to uphold the integrity that is so basic to the college. These hopes for next year arc not things that can be legislated; yet, I feel that Rep Council is the group who can lead in this effort to unite the campus community while keeping the larger world community in mind. This goal can be furthered through continued rcforms-which will definitely be a large part of Rep Council's work for next year; but I hope that these specifics can be instituted with this greater goal always in sight. Interboard co-operation will be a big factor, but the best means will be the interest and participation of everyone. This will require an eagerness to listen to "dissident" opinions and a sincere "openmindedness," but I don't think these are impossible. We can all find a common conviction in the high ideal of "academic integrity," and castles can be built from there. I am eager to work for such a venture. Decline in class,,. Candidates disagree.., (CONT. FROM P. 5) l'c clings. Individual representatives might be available to talk with minority groups-a great deal of their apparent "insensitrvity" is because they are not aware that these feelings exist. And this is not their fault - too many students never bother to make their gripes known. But the real conflict is between the "individual" and the "community" interests-I want to work to unite the two without destroying either-and I believe this is possible. What is your position on the A A UP statement on student rights and freedoms? Is this statement needed at Agnes Scott? Why or why not? If so, how do you plan to have it implemented? Brown: omit Cuill: Omit. Kenyon: I believe that the Agnes Scott Chapter of the A A UP voted with our interests at heart. They closed this issue then-there fore, I don't feel that this question is relevant. (CONT. FROM P. 6) Is AA primarily an organization to provide athletic outlets for students if they wish them or does the board seek to encourage the improvement of students' physical health? Bowers: I have always looked to AA to provide athletic outlets. There is nothing better, to my knowledge, to relieve the tensions of study than a good workout. (1 would think that this type of exercise promotes mental as well as physical health, also.) AA does provide many facilities for the improvement of the student's physical health such as the exercise lab, the pool, and open gym on Wednesday night. Crum: I think that AA should primarily offer athletic outlets for students who wish to take advantage of them. By participating in athletic events, students improve their physical health. Requiring a certain number of practices before a student may participate in an athletic contest, AA is attempting to improve both physical health and athletic ability. Smith: Athletic Association promotes interests in athletic activities as well as developing physical fitness. Although A A provides for the improvement of physical health, the primary emphasis of AA is providing for athletic outlets for the students. It has seemed that in recent years the Hub and Hub parties have been used for little more than selling sweatshirts. Do you agree with this statement? Why or why not? Do you have any specific suggestions for using the Hub better or for increasing participation at Hub parties? Bowers: I do not agree with this statement Although sweat-shirts have been on sale at every Hub party, they may not have been the major objective of the parties. Most people stay long after the food and sweatshirts are gone to sing and have fun. Judging from the participation during this year, I think the Hub parties have been a success, with lots of spirit dominant. I can only hope that the turn-outs will be as good next year and that there can be many more parties. A party's always fun if you take the time to enjoy yourself. Crum: 1 do not think that recently the Hub parties have been used "for little more than selling sweatshirts." In recent years the Hub has housed the Garrett; it is used for Thursday chapels; it has been used during Winter Dance Weekend; until this year, it was used as the center of the first day of freshmen orientation; the Hub houses the pool table, which is used a good bit; finally, Hub parties do not consist just of selling sweatshirts; one also finds many students taking advantage of the food and singing-more studetns than are buying sweatshirts. I think that the Hub can and will be used to better advantage next year. A good bit of the problem this year was that the Hub was not opened untotil after Thanksgiving and people had got used to meeting in other places. The main thing that can increase participation at Hub parties is by planning different types of parties. Smith: The purpose of Hub parties is definitely not selling sweatshirts. There are several reasons why AA sells sweatshirts at Hub parties: ( 1 ) it is a service to the students, (2) it is a means of attracting students who otherwise might not come, (3) it is a means for AA to raise money. The primary purpose of Hub parties is for spirit and a sense of campus unity. Hub parties are a welcomed thirty-minute break from academics. The responsibility for increasing participation at Hub parties cannot be placed wholly upon any one board butmustbe placed upon the students themselves. Co -optatioti THE ROFILE VOLUME LV NUMBER 1 9 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 APRIL 11, 1969 Board Presid communicati Editor's Note: Merely for its own information the Profile staff began to organize the statements made in the election issue of March 26 by the new ASC student government. The following statements are the result of a reading of that issue and of an interview with the six major board presidents. Hopefully this will give some idea of their plans and the ideas that fuller knowledge of their offices has brought. The article was researched by Fran Fulton, Janice Johnston, Linda Laney, Norma Shaheen, Ginny Sfmmons, Bev Walker, and was collected by Elizabeth Mathes. Dusty Kenyon, the President of Student Government and an English major, stated that the major emphasis of student government this year will be better communication on campus. Major legislative emphasis will be placed on empowering House Council to take over many Judicial functions. Dusty also advocates retention of membership in the National Student Association and the Intercollegiate committee. She will be unable to attend the NSA convention because she will be in England at the time. Dusty did not advocate further centralization of student government in order to make Rep Council dominant. She does plan more contact between student government and the Board of Trustees. Nancy Rhodes, Judicial Chairman, made three distinct suggestions in her election article. She called for a permanent policy on dorm searches to be drawn up by Rep Council, suggested that open hearings be held to sample student opinion and that student participation be welcomed at Judicial meetings. Nancy also stated that the link between honor and Judicial should be strengthened and clarified. She stated emphatically that Judicial was not in a position to instigate campus reform, but rather to evaluate and recommend it. She made a clear distinction between Rep Council's legislative power and Judicial. Judicial is now establishing a joint committee with House Council to study the possibility of turning the automatic penalty system over to House Council. Judy Mauldin, President of Christian Association, said that she had not yet had time to discuss specific plans with her board. Her objectives are thus general, the same ones that she described as a candidate. According to Judy, CA has a two-fold purpose; it must develop both personal involvement and off-campus commitment. Judy plans to increase the discussion of committment on a person-to-person level, re-evaluating Religious Emphasis Week to include more personal contact. Although unable to say anything specific about the content of chapels, she sees this area as one in need of change - perhaps the number of CA chapels will have to be decreased. Mary Wills Hatfield, President of Social Council, said that the major issues for the spring will be planning Orientation and Winter Dance Weekend. She is interested in getting more people involved in Orientation, especially in planning Black Cat. In the hope of offering a wider variety" "of activities, mixers on Sunday and Wednesdays will be continued. Outdoor activities with boys from Emory and Tech. movies, the fashion show, and a mm ents emphasize on in plans student-faculty coffee will be offered. Elizabeth Crum, President of Athletic Association, said that she would like to continue and extend a program that AA worked toward this year - namely, seeing activities open to a broader range of students rather than just the athletically inclined. Sally Skardon, Chairman of House Presidents' Council, sees her main objectives as a continuation of the move toward centralization of the dorms and further expansion of the area of student freedom with responsibility. She is interested in a re-evaluation of the sign-out system, a transfer of automatic penalties from Judicial to House Council. In her election article, Sally came out in favor of parietals. She also saw appointed House Council members as more effective and enthusiastic than those who did not petition but were elected. Board Presidents pose with other elected officials. They are Judy Mauldin, Elizabeth Crum, Mary Wills Hatfield, Nancy Rhodes and Dusty Kenyon. Nixon discusses federal aid, the campus demonstrator Dr. Klaus Mehnert, visiting Phi Beta Kappa lecturer, chats with Agnes Scott senior Terri Langston. by Janice Johnston Features Editor The Nixon administration has brought to the attention of college administrators provisions of two acts passed by the last Congress which affect the status of student demonstrators who are receiving financial aid from the government. The President pointed out that the Congress has already given university administrators the right to ask for the withholding of federal funds from students found guilty of violating criminal statutes. Under certain conditions the student can be denied aid under the following programs; National Defence Educational Act loans, Educational Opportunity grants, federally guaranteed loans, college work-study, government fellowships, National Science Foundation, and National Aeronautics and Space Administration grants. The 1969 appropriations bill for the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, which provides the money for the programs mentioned above has a provision attached to it that says "no part of the funds... Shall be used" for aid to any student or faculty member "convicted by any court of general jurisdiction of the use of or assistance in the use of Klaus Mehnert on worldwide by KAY O'BRIANT Managing Editor Klaus Mehnert, guest lecturer in history for the past week comes from a varied and interesting academic background. He holds the position of professor of political science at' the Institute of Technology, Aachen, West Germany and has just completed a stint at the University of California at Berkeley as guest professor. Professor Mehnert is interested in student youth movements and elaborated on this theme to two students in an interview. His Phi Beta Kappa address also covered this same topic. He touched on student unrest in various countries before commenting on the situation in the United States. Students in Czechoslovakia had been the most successful in attaining their goals, he began. "Three important events were first visible in the younger generation, among the students. But in Czechoslovakia, there was a peculiarity. There the students were not isolated as in other countries; the students and a great part of the adult intelligentsia and the workers were together, due to the fact that they had one common enemy, Soviet pressure." Professor Mehnert continued, Jan Palach was a symbol for the whole of Czechoslovakia, not just one student. "He also made a dinstiction concerning the goals of the Czech students. l What they wanted," he force, trespassseizure of property under control of the college to prevent officials or students from engaging in their duties or pursuing studies." A provision of amendments to the Higher Education Act of 1968 applies if students participate in a protest but are not arrested. The student can be denied only if his school determines that he "willfully refused to obey (its) lawful regulation or order and serious nature and contributed to a substantial disruption of the ad ministration' ' of the institution. These provisions, which President Nixon says will be enforced, are under discussion in the House higher education subcommittee chaired by Representative Edith Green. The Green committee has heard testimony for and aginst aid cut-off. Representatives of National Education Association and its student affiliate SNEA called for repeal of the provisions because they are "vague, unenforceable, unduly repressive, and unjust." In his statement the President laid to rest the question of direct federal intervention on troubled campuses saying "the federal government cannot should not, must not" become the nation's campus peace-keeper. "That," he said, "is fundamentally the task and responsibility of the university community." elaborates student wires t said "Wasn't a destruction of society but a liberialization of a socialist economy." Questioned on the amount of student dissent in Russia, Professor Mehenert replied that there was very little of it. "There was not outcry in Russia over the Czech invasion. The Russians, including the young are very patriotic. They felt that the goals of the Czechs were going too far. They also feel the east European countries are part of the Russian empire; without Czechoslovakia the whole frontier of Russia is split wide open." In other areas besides Czechoslovakia, Professor Mehnert also noted little dissent among the Russian students. "There is not much to complain about in the material field, also their status is good. They still have to be careful in what they say and write. But they feel a certain amount of unanimity is necessary for the security of Russia, so they will accept it." "In Germany", he went on, "The students of today are totally different from 40 to 45 years ago. They are very internationalist and not eager to go into the army. "Questioned as to the effect of student activism in Germany, Professor Mehnert felt that they had a definite effect, "As long as they stick to areas here people feel they have an interest, mainly the academic area. Where their effort is (CONT.

They do not necessarily represent the opinion of the administration or the student body. Entered as second class mail at the Decatur, Ga., Post Office. Ratified air . . . There has been much said in the past few weeks about the breakdown in communication on campus, and as this concerns any newspaper vitally, it seems time to examine the situation both in terms of the campus and the Profile. Two attitudes have dominated this community of late - that of suspicion and that of passive acceptance of what is believed to be inert and unchangeable. The suspicion was patent in pre-election activities with both the electorate and the candidates assuming a posture of self-defense against those who would attempt to manipulate or to "get" them. The candidates appeared to doubt the Profile's integrity, the Profile came to doubt the candidates, and the student body wandered inbetween in confusion. Obviously, the rarified air of post-elections has had a salutory effect, so that student government officers appear willing to understand and unite once again. However, the growing passivity of our community which leads to the much discussed apathy, is too obvious to be written off. The emphasis of student government officers will be on communication, interboard cooperation, and involvement of the student body. Yet it would seem that no amount of enthusiasm can withstand the onslaught of daily doses of faces totally devoid of concern. Perhaps we do see our self-government as trivial in the face of other social problems and perhaps we do find ourselves in a position of constant irritation with "petty rules," but the irritation is a sign of life whereas the small attendance at almost any campus function from hall meetings to Student Government convocations and elections would indicate a moribund populace. It seems then that the real problem lies not in channeling dissent or in easing friction but in "participation" and "commitment," to coin a cliche. So often we allow others to plan for us, to administrate for us, to keep us comfortable, even to stimulate us, without lifting one limp finger to create for ourselves. We sit, we pay our money, we watch and sometimes we are entertained if the inducement is great enough. We have got to move. The Profile has in the past attempted to be just such a galvanizing agent and since the editors firmly believe they have a duty to inform^to lead, and to be opinionated, we will continue to attempt to provide a broad spectrum of opinion. We request-no^we demand a response from the campus community. We will work, we will try but we can only be as good and as concerned as our readers. Viet Nam Lectures by JANET LEVY The Honorable Eugene R. Black delivered a series of three lectures entitled "Alternatives in Southeast Asia" at Emory University. April 7-9 He appeared at Emory as a William Rand Kenan, Jr., University Professor. A former president of the World Bank, Black served during the Johnson Administration as a Special Adviser to the President for Economic and Social Development of Southeast Asia. In this capacity, he worked closely with the establishment of the Asian Development Bank and development programs on the Mekong River. He has been Chief of Mission on three Presidential Missions to Southeast Asia. In his first lecture, Black pointed out that American military forces will be required in Southeast Asia for many years to come. But a new multilateral framework for the American presence must be devised to supplant our current unilateral action and to involve other nations whose national interest would be affected. Black cited the threat of Chinese domination of Asia as the primary need for continued American presence in Southeast Asia. Black opened his second lecture with an appeal for the revival of the art of diplomacy in the United States as a means of avoiding both isolationism and the role of world policeman. Calling for efforts to develop regional cooperation in Southeast Asia after hostilities cease in Viet Nam, he cited a common Asian fear of China and a common desire for "development" as motivating forces. "Southeast Asians themselves will determine the forms and the pace of regional cooperation Black commented. Our willingness to stay around and help will be of crucial importance, but the effectiveness of our help will be a function of the patience, self-restraint and perservance of our diplomacy ." Black closed the lecture series by stating thay we must be sure that our foreign policy ideals are always firmly rooted in real interests. "Only as we understand them, then I believe there is a world of work to be done in which we can and must participate." (CONT. ON P.4) K.P. Detail That leviathan, the election issue, left me no opportunity to make any last statement, any parting shot. Elizabeth Mathes and the new PROFILE staff, bowing to antiquity, have granted me one last column after which, earley sets. "Hard-driving" might be a very appropriate adjective to characterize in part both this year and its newspaper. Most obviously, student government has been concerned with pushing for campus reform, while the newspaper has tugged in another direction. But the pace and impetus have been maintained in other, subtler ways. One very real force was the unusually short winter quarter when so much had to be done, academically, legislatively, in every area. Moreover, we had a major shift of gears in adapting to the new routine of self -scheduling exams. As we have worked together, and sometimes against each other, at the rather frenzied pace, we have taken ourselves pretty seriously. There has been little relaxing this year. We seem to have had no time or talent for living lightly, laughing at ourselves, smiling at our own foibles. We've tried so hard. mm by sandra earley Perhaps this, while turn of the 1968-69 session, is also true of the college at all times. If so, it seems a shame. But each new year, each new student government, is a fresh opportunity. Next year, as it now seems, is a particularly good chance for a positive view of the college. With any luck, this look will include a giggle, as we learn to enjoy ourselves and our sometimes ridiculous Lives as college students. Whatever the opinion or evaluation this year's PROFILE (and I still find our goals sound, both as stated and as implemented, with the exception of a few errors in judgment), there has been a phenominal amount of work put into the production of the newspaper. The writing staff has been very loyal and hard-warking, and, I hope, is repaid in part by the experiences individual members have had and by what they have learned from the stories they have covered. They have done a good Somewhere in the shadowy background far most readers of the PROFILE, is the business staff: the business, advertising and circulation managers. They are not ghosts as far as I am concerned. Sharon Plemons and Catherine Auman have kept us solvent. Sharon figured the accounts and, wonderously, biLled and paid bills regularly. It was also good to be able to count on Catherine to pull in the advertisers so Sharon could bill them. I appreciate their work very much. Tyler McFadden had what is undoubtedly the most thankless job on the PROFILE. Bach week she not only distributed the newspapers to students as soon as they were off the press, she also mailed them out to subscribers. It was also her burden to grapple with the intricacies of the second class mail system. If I were the editor of the "Greer Citizen," my hometown weekly. I would award her the orchid of the week. Thanks also to Kay Parkerson O'Briant and Elizabeth Mathes tor inumerable real and figuratively long Sunday afternoons in the Pub. We made it, girls, and now it's all yours, tra-la. Last of all, 1 can't forget our staff artist, Ann Abernethy, who whipped up graphic masterpieces at the drop of a hat or whimper of an editor. Gritchel, Ann, and thanks be to Humort it's all over. One little detail has been added to the above title. During Spring vacation, this writer took the marital plunge and is now ensconced in the Alumnae House complete with no hours, no signing in and out and instant adult status. Funny I don't feel any older, somehow the part of married matron hasn't taken hold yet. Vm also lacking another important commodity - namely a husband. Oh yes, he does exist, but is presently finishing up school in Clem son. South Carolina. For the last three weekends. Fve been making the trek up 1-85 to Hubby's apartment to make sure he is fed. dressed and otherwise kept up in the style to which he is accustomed. Somehow those Saturday mornings in the library (or in bed) have been replaced by the more prosaic jaunts to the laundromat and supermarket. You'd be amazed at the clear t lunking that can occur when one has one's arms up to the elbows in detergent or dishwater. Agnes Scott is far away and the nitty-gritty is as near as all that goup that collects under your fingernails. Last weekend, was a pretty nitty-gritty one. I got in Friday night and before going to the apartment to survey the week's damage, invited some of my husband's friends over for supper. I proceeded to the apartment to find that the electric company in its mighty wisdom had cut off the power in the apartment building and had forgotten to notify anyone. The refrigerator was defrosting itself (ever cleaned out a refrigerator by candlelight?), the stove was useless, the cupboard bare. Brazier burger saved the day, and besides you can't see what vou're eating by candlelight anyway. Saturday evening. Hubby arranged for a get-together with several other married couples. Somehow I get along better with his classmates thjn nice young marrieds. A stimulating discussion was held among the women concerning grocery prices and that shocking story in this month's Redbook, the one about college students living together in sin. I almost took the side of sin, just for fun. The evening wound up with an exciting half-hour of Petticoat Junction. It seems that Billie Joe or Bobbie Joe or whatever her name is, is about to have a baby, only she didn't get around to it before the program was over. Tune in next week folks. Sunday was nice though. Just Hubby and I on a picnic by a lake. At least until a stray dog adopted us and kept trying to steal food all afternoon. But I guess he was just some more nitty-gritty popping up. Hubby and I are staying in Clemson this summer. He wants to take some grad courses and wants to go to summer school too. Only they don't offer the course I need. It's called Survival 101.

New NSA Coordinator: "I don't want to be involved." 'Little Foxes' Reviewed by CAROLYN GRAY Lillian Hellman's "The Little Foxes" is not an exciting play, but the Alliance Resident Theatre production is good theatre. And in Atlanta, that is exciting e The easy predictability of the plot, carried out by a cast of clearly delineated good guys and bad guys, was rather annoying in the moments which should have been tensely dramatic. However the lack of interest in the developing plot gave the audience time to reflect on the developing theme. The old theme of man's inhumanity to man, specifically the exploitation of the poor by the rising middle class, has not lost its relevance. The actors were rather unconvincing at the start, but seemed to grow into their roles as the play progressed. Peter Thompson, Claudette Nevins, and David Gold are well cast as the stupid crook, the cold hearted woman, and the blustering businessman. If you want to be a good guy in this play you must choose to be a Southern Negro at the turn of the century^ an adolescent, an alcoholic, or dead by the third act. The two Negro characters fall into the two stereotyped black roles: one spurts laugh lines whenever the author wants comic relief. The other overflows with earthy wisdom at every opportunity . Hannibal Penny and Mildred Brown are adequate in these parts. Carol More is miscast as the Alexandra; she is simply too old for the part. Sandra Seacat is cast in Atlanta audiences' favorite role: the Southern aristocrat displaced by money grubbing capitalists. Strange that every Atlanta theater goer sees himself in the latter role. 1 don't think the playwright would agree. Michael Ebert's performance as Horace Giddens, capitalistturned humanitarian, is excellent. The impressive box set designed by Richard almost attains the air of opulence the play requires. The failure seems to be in budget rather than imagination. Lighting and sound are adequate, if not outstanding. Kurt Wilhelm's costuming is well designed and well carried out. I recommend "The Little Foxes" to theatre lovers. Its faults are of the kind that the lovers of the stage will find easy to forgive and lovers of the cinema will find intolerable. Simmons finds Harvard Frisbee buffs sing wel The Agnes Scott Glee Club sang with the Harvard University Glee Club under the direction of Robert Shaw Tuesday, April I. The production was one of the Scott Glee Club's more spectacular moments, yet the concert itself was actually a lesser part of the production. Several other rather rare opportunities accompanied the event. There was the experience of having free extracurricular classes in Frisbee handling, the practice in understanding somewhat foreign speech, the rather unique chance to enjoy free champagne, and of course the cultural exchange inherent to students as highly alert and by GINNY SIMMONS intelligent as those of Agnes Scott and Harvard. Actually the Glee Clubs had been preparing for this concersince Christmas. All winter quarter frantic arrangements flew through the mail. The prepartions were flexible in details but on the whole they were carried out. Monday the Harvard group came directly out to Scott from the airport. Here the boys were treated to the reviving nourishment of cookies and punch in the Hub. The two glee clubs mingled and munched while the piano played away and the refreshments disappeared. An Atlanta "Journal" photographer The Agnes Scott College and Harvard University Glee Clubs settle down to Mozart after a hard day of Frisbee matches. wandered about taking pictures. Tish Lowe, Agnes Scott senior, strongly suspected him of picking out the beards to photograph; but 1 would point out that he would have been hard pressed to findboys with neither beard nor mustache. In the end it hardly mattered; the pictures were not printed. Before long the group gravitated out to the Quadrangle to set utemporary athletic field. It seems that Harvard's official sport is Frisbee throwing. S co tries are game creatures, so many joined in* Serious accidents were avoided and the only apparent permanent result is a sustained trauma among the resident pigeons. Over supper we discovered that Letitia Pate is far superior to the eating facilities at Harvard. The boys were much impressed that we are allowed to SEE what we are eating. The boys were also pleased wiin our stylishness in dress. At Radcliff girls seem to wear only slacks and shorts. After supper the Glee Clubs bussed downtown for the first joint rehearsal. Until then neither group had heard or sung with the other. At our Second rehearsal, Tuesday afternoon, we paid homage to the Harvard group with Susi Borcuk's election talent cheer. The boys, much pleased and amused, replied with a musical rendition of tl You-all, You-all, You-all," (Ya'll just isn't easy to put to music, I guess.

FROM P. 1) directed at outdatedness in German universities, they are also supported. But if they say they want to change society without saying how, their impact is less." Turning his attention to the American student scene, Professor Mehnert stressed that the biggest drawback to the American movement was the lack of a definite program of improvements. American student agitation appears to him to be, tc A youthful outburst against authority with vague goals." The color issue is also a factor common only to the United States. Predicting the future of the student movements in this country, Professor Mehnert was optimistic. "There will be changes," he said, "A colorless society will come, but that will be a much longer process. Idealistic liberals will probably get more done. In changing society, the students will remain unsucessful until they come up with suggestions. They do not believe in ideas, they believe in action. They are anti-intellectual and anti-idea. 1 But Professor Mehnert retained his optimistic note to the end. Viet Nam... (C ONT.

He rejected the idea that the United States is in Viet Nam to protect capitalist interests, and dclcared that our real interest is to prevent the start of World War, On programs for economic development. Black felt that plans tor future development cannot be effected until after the cessation of hostilities. A specialist in economic development, Eugene Black did not concern himself with political or military aspects of the war. lor this reason, his lectures offered more in the way of alternatives for a peaceful future than suggestions for the actual achievement of peace in Southeast Asia. He strongly urged U.S. cooperation in the development of the Mekong River. Describing the Mekong as the most important international river never restrained or bridged, Mr. Black suggested that its development could be the key to peace in Southeast TOMORROW, APRIL 1 2, the campus welcomes back the alumnae for the traditional alumnae day festivities. There will be an added treat this year with the reception honoring Carrie Scandrett, Dean of Students, which will be held this evening from 8 to 10 p.m. On the agenda for Saturday will be a class council meeting, tours of Dana and the annual luncheon. From 10:15 to 11:45, special faculty lectures for alumnae will be conducted. The biology, chemistry and physics departments are having an open house cum lectures; David P. Forsythe is lecturing on "The Crisis Today in American Foreign Policy." Edward T. Ladd, director of Agnes Scott's teacher program will speak on "Six Ignored Barriers to the Improvement of Public Education"; Jack L. Nelson will present "Activity versus Action in the Novel"; and Richard D. Parry is lecturing on "A New Kind of Student". A CONFERENCE ON RADICAL SOUTHERN HISTORY will be held by the Southern Student Organizing Committee (SSOC) at Emory University at the Alumni Memorial Building on April 18-20. The theme of the conference will be the long struggle of Southern rebels against the system of big business and Northern capitalism* Speakers, discussions and panels will emphasize the radical events in the South and why they failed, why the South is still the poorest region in the nation and why unionization is still denied to many Southern working people. Speakers will include: H.L. Mitchell, organizer of Arkansas tenant farmers into the Southern Tenant Farmers Union in 1934; Don West, editor of the magazine APPALACHIAN SOUTH; Donald Roy, a Duke University professor who specializes in the sociology and history of labor.

Each play is a remarkable achievement in its own way. The first play is a staged reading of "Antigone" translated from the Greek by Anne Allen, a senior at Agnes Scott. The second is a melodrama, ' Because their Hearts Were Pure or The Secret of the Mine ' with nine sets, eighteen set changes, and a cast of over fifteen. Both plays are a far cry from the productions that Blackfriars was putting on fifty-four years ago. At that time, Blackfriars, just born from the merger of two older clubs, the Mnemosynean and Propylean societies, was doing simple plays without a theatre and with rented costumes (hat didn't always fit. There were other problems. For one thing, men were not allowed in the cast and the girls who took their places were not allowed to wear trousers. Even after the girls were finally allowed to wear their gym bloomers when they took male parts, they were directed to stand behind a table or chair whenever on stage, lest their legs show, of course. However, all things are overcome by time, even legs, and in 1928 a play written by a student, Margaret Bland Sewell, was presented in the National Little Theatre Tournament and the David Belasco cup contest in New York. It won first prize for an unpublished play. Blackfriars continued to grow. In the fall of 1939, Miss Gooch, the founder and first director of the drama club, was joined by Miss Roberta Winter, Miss Winter, who had been active in Blackfriars in both acting and writing, became the director of the club after Miss Gooch's retirement. Eventually under Miss Winter's direction, the English Department gave birth to an independent drama department, which is entirely separate from Blackfriars, although they, of course, work together very closely.

AGNES SC O I I DANCE GROUP will present its spring concert Friday night, April 25, in Gaines Chapel. The concert will present a variety of dances on many themes - including light as well as dramatic interpretations. Penny Burr, president of the dance group, encourages the campus community to attend the program. All members of Dance Group have helped in choreographing the selections. VOLLEYBALL COMPETITION this spring will include class games, interdorm games and intercollegiate games. Open practices have been held the past two weeks under the direction of Miss Peggy Cox, and class practices began this week. The schedule for practices is posted on the bulletin board in the gym. Managers for the class teams are: freshmen, Kathy Sloan and Susan Stimson ; sophomores, Karen Hazelwood and Rebecca Martin, juniors, Bonnie Brown Junior Jaunt play-day needs you out-of-doors and Ruth Hyatt: and seniors, Evelyn Angeletti and Martha Cooper. The first class games are scheduled for this afternoon at 4 p.m. with the freshmen playing the sophomores and the juniors playing the seniors. Interdorm competition centers around a tournament which began April 16th when Main took on Rebecca and Hopkins battled Inman. Students wishing to participate in these games are asked to practice whenever by BEV WALKER Associate Editor 4 4 1 t just better not rain. ../ warns Caroline Mitchell, chairman of Junior Jaunt. Junior Jaunt is to be held Saturday, April 26th from 1 1 A.M. to 3 P.M. on the hockey field. The activities this year are different. In the past there have been dances and such to raise money for the underprivileged. "This year," Caroline says, "it is time for a change. Last year there was not much enthusiasm. Instead of giving money, we will devote time. The idea is to foster community relations. 1 ' Second, third and fourth graders from Winnona Park Elementary, College Heights, and a small group from Trinity Presbyterian Church will be invited. About 200 children are expected. Minor problem. How do you possibly feed and entertain 200 kids. Each class is uniting forces to combat the problem. Gin Crane, chairman for the freshmen , is in charge of the rations. "Two hundred kids eating chicken will be a mess,' 1 Gin concluded, "maybe hamburgers?" Anyway they will eat. "We hope to have watermelon, too," she added. The sophomores, commanded by Dale Derrick, are responsible for activities. The kids will be divided into units. Class officers Christie Fulton, Carol Hacker, and Sue Sayre will be in charge of groups of 60 children. Each of them will have five aids who will each take 12. The groups will rotate and play different games. "The idea is to have enough activities planned so the kids will have something to do, but to keep it flexible enough so they can play what they want to," says Dale. Most of the games will be relay or ball games, clowns will be on the field handing out balloons and bubble gum. Each grade will have a mascot. The Juniors are taking care of the "at ease period." After lunch there will be singing and story-telling. Bonnie Brown is in charge of this. Financing the activities is left to the thrifty Seniors under Ruth Hayes. They will sponsor a faculty raffle and a bake sale on Thursday, the the 24th. All in all, the day should be a lot of fun. Those of us who miss having kids around will have our fill next Saturday. The campus is invited to come and join the games. (If anyone thinks she will get any studying done, especially in the library, they'd better forget it.) Why not join the fun?

Miss Flvena Green came in the fall of 1959 to teach acting, speech, and direct the technical facets of productions. Under Miss Green the technical aspects of the theatre continued to develop, in spite of the difficulties of working in Presser. Some of the problems took interesting turns, such as the night a tape broke and girls had to stand backstage and bark like dogs. In 1965 Miss Winter and Miss Green worked out the establishment of a drama major. About the same time as the establishment of the drama major, Blackfriars made two great steps forward. One was the new theatre in Dana with uncluttered work space and a very interesting stage and the second was Miss Jerry Rentz. The club's production of plays involves both students in the department and students with no academic association with drama in the theatre. Learning the difficulties and hard work involved in producing a play enhances the students 1 appreciation of drama. Today Blackfriars is not only the oldest club on campus but also one of the most productive.

The Pro Musica ensemble consists of five vocalists and five instrumentalists under the direction of John Reeves White. Included in the five voices are a soprano, a mezzo-soprano, a countertenor, tenor, and a bass baritone. Because the scoring used by the Pro Musica is as close as possible to the performance practice contemporary with the compositions, precise reconstructions of the original instruments are used. Some of the more unfamiliar to the layman are the krummhorn, a soft wind instrument; the sackbut, an early, less "brassy" trombone; the vielle, a medieval fiddle; the rauschpfeife, a loud wind instrument with a piercing sound; the organetto, a small organ consisting of one rank of stopped flue pipes; lutes, recorders, harpsicord and various percussion instruments. The Pro Musica repertoire includes sacred works formerly performed in Chartres and Notre Dame, Germanic songs and dances of the fifteenth century, music from Elizabethan England, music from Spain and the Low Countries, and Italian renaissance madrigals. The program to be offered at Agnes Scott will be based on the books published by Ottaviano Petrucci, who in 1501 succeeded in printing from movable type the first volume of polyphonic music anywhere. His invention coincided witii the rise of the Flemish tradition with such masters as Josquin des Prez, Heinrich Isaak, Jacob Obrecht, and Baldazar. The Pro Musica will also perform works by Dufay, who launched the northern composers on their international course, and some popular Italian music such as the laude, frottole and dances written for the lute. Brown leads Scott summer invasion of England in i 10 by KAY O'BRIANT Agnes Scott is expanding its curriculum in an imaginative way. During the summer of 1970, a course in Social History of Tudor and Stuart England will be offered and where better to offer it than in England itself? The course will be worth seven hours of credit and will entail six weeks of study and travel in the British Isles. Michael Brown, associate professor of history and acting assistant dean of the faculty, is behind the formation of the program and will accompany the tour (accompanied by his wife.) But this is no tour as such. Seven cities will be visited, but lectures, reading, required places to visit and a paper to be due in the fall will assure you of the academic nature of the course. The group will arrive in London June 25 and stay there ten days visiting Parliament, the law courts and other places dealing with a theme of Britain's central government. British professors will lecture in their field, usually at the appropriate locale. Brown stressed that this will be no dry classroom course. From London, the group moves to Exeter for four days and has a chance to see England's West Country. The emphasis here will be on colonization and English commerce and the ghosts of Drake and Raleigh will be duly brought to life. Oxford is next for one week with the stress this time on education, art, music and architecture, or culture in the Elizabethan age. Also it is a good chance to see a fine university and hopefully meet some students. A. L. Rowse, a British professor well-known to Agnes Scott, will be a guest lecturer in Oxford. The scene shifts to Warwick next for study of the entertainments and amusements of the period for a week. Although bear-baiting and cock-fighting are no longer around, Stratford-on-Avon is, and advantage will be taken nightly of the Bard's offerings. Three days in North Wales and Chester are next on the agenda and tours of country houses will be featured. Another three days will be spent in the Lake District at Windemere, soaking up houses and history. The last week will be in Edinburgh, Scotland, before the group heads home around August 5. Mr. Brown stressed that there would be plenty of free time for exploring on one's own. Most evenings and weekends will be free also. Asked if this course would be given again, he replied, "It is not a one-shot deal, but the beginning of a continuing program of summer work abroad." Eventually similar courses will be offered in other fields and hopefully other countries. The deadline for applications is November 1 and they may be given to Mr. Brown. Sufficient interest has to be shown in order to enable the program to be done. A minimum of 25 students will be needed to make it feasible. The course is open to rising juniors and seniors (as of 1 970). The campus will have a chance for a preview of one of the professors who will be addressing the course next year. He is Professor Joel Hurstfield of the University of London, who will be speaking on campus April 29. Any further questions should be addressed to Mr. Brown.

NSA sues Finch, Laird for federal student aid cutbacks by JOHN ZEH College Press Service (CPS) -A suit has been filed in federal court challenging the constitutionality of legislation which cuts off financial aid of college students involved in "disruptive" campus protests. Principal plaintiff is the U.S. National Student Association, a confederation of 386 student governments on campuses across the nation. Joining NSA in the action as representative parties are the student governments at Notre Dame, the University of California at Berkeley, and Maryland; the president of Staten Island Community College, and four students. The suit seeks to declare unconstitutional, and thus nullify, certain so-called "anti-riot" provisions of federal legislation designed to deny federal aid to disruptive protesters. Named as chief defendant is Robert Finch, Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, who administers most of the funds involved. Defense secretary Melvin Laird and Leland J. Ha worth, director of the National Science Foundation, are also named because they administer applicable research programs. "When our nation's lawmakers plunge beyond the constitution in their zeal to punish students," said NSA president Robert Powell, Jr., "it is time to call a halt. In NSA vs. Finch, we seek to secure the protection afforded to students under the constitution against the emotional and intemperate reaction of our lawmakers." More than 1.5 million students receive aid under programs affected by the cut-off provisions. Also involved are professors' and graduate students' research subsidies. The NSA suit contends the cut-offs are illegal because they violate rights of free speech, assembly and conscience; invade states' rights; constitute bills of attainder; violate due process; are vague and indefinite; and invidiously discriminate against the poor. Powell charged that the laws also "represent dangerous and unwise educational policy because they substantially diminish the options" open to educators in student discipline, because they are "inherently unfair," and because "the powers of the federal government do not and should not extend to matters of student misconduct." If the government "arbitrarily and unfairly intrudes into the controversy surrounding student discipline within the university," he added, "it will only invite further division, bitterness, and paralysis within the university at a time when that institution should be restoring and strengthening its internal capacity for self-regulation." Powell closed his statement with a plea for more student involvement in institutional affairs: "Protests should not be mistaken for the real problems, which spring from the inherently undemocratic processes of the university. Student powerlessness produces campus disruptions. If lawmakers and educators wish to serve the best and highest interest of our universities, they will go to the causes of the problem with their treatment, rather than mistakenly dealing only with the symptoms." William M. Birenbaum, SICC president, is the representative administrator. The suit asks for an immediate, temporary injunction against enforcement of the cut-offs until the case can be heard by a three-judge panel. The cut-offs were tacked onto legislation by the last Congress after the House Higher Education subcommittee had urged leaving disciplinary matters up to individual institutions. One provision calls for mandatory cut-off if a student is convicted of a crime during a protest. Another lets the school decide if the disruption or rule violation was "of a serious nature" before cutting off aid. The provisions were not enforced under the Johnson Administration, but President Nixon has made it clear he intends to enforce the law. The subcommittee, which handles much of the challenged legislation, has been holding hearings on the aid cut-off amendments. Rep. Fdith Creen (D-Ore.), chairman of the subcommitte, plans to see that the cut-offs are maintained. She is preparing legislation to establish a mediation service for campus disputes and to pay federal financial aid to students in installments so that it can be more efficiently cut off.

As we come now to the completion of several months of preparation for Junior Jaunt, it is time to stop and think about what has been planned for us, We are looking forward with high hopes and no little trepidation, to the arrival of some 200 kiddies on campus tomorrow. The "rut" we were in with last year's activity has been filled with experience and asphalted with new ideas. We are now whizzing down the highway to -- Armageddon? Only one thing seems lacking to make the affair a triumph and a memorable one, rather than a mere success. And that is the answer to the question, "Why are WE doing THIS?" It would seem that we have lost a sense of purpose, that we are goalless in our activity. Merely wanting to "do something for somebody" is laudable but creating an effective, useful, and timely action is a difficult thing to achieve. To begin, one must first define terms. Junior Jaunt is a major campus-wide project. It has in the past been concerned with charity, specifically the raising of money for a "worthy cause." Now, "doing something for a Worthy Cause" is good. It is also a more limited desire. When one comes to consider the word "charity," the field of action is considerably more limited. It generally involves giving from abundance to those less fortunate. It involves attention to others. This is a purely personal definition of course, but a project like Junior Jaunt should involve not only concern for others but also a willingness to turn attention away from one's self and environs. It is not that we have not attempted to do this by having a playday, but the problem is that we will accomplish little lasting good by this expenditure of our efforts. If we are concerned with human relations, then the possibilities for action are limitless; but if we are concerned with our obligation to society and to community relations then enthusiasm quickly wanes. Surely with a little experience this year, we can coordinate the two. One more time... When complaints reached a crescendo about the food last quarter, gripe lists were posted in the halls and the food committee scheduled meetings with the dining hall personnel. The campus community is still waiting for the results of those meetings, if any, or proof that our suggestions are being implemented. The gripes last quarter centered on the quality of meats, the preponderance of leftovers, and lack of imagination in menus. Breakfast, or the condition to which it had sunk, was deplored. True, some changes have been made this quarter. The popsicles are appreciated as are the cold plates, and more bacon for breakfast. But there are still complaints from those who are forced to eat at 1:00 or after that any choice of food is gone before they get there, and cold plates are non-existent. The Saturday meals and Sunday supper are still bad. We get the impression that all the leftovers are pulled out on Saturday, that no one would eat the week previous. More food is wasted than eaten. O.K. food committee, get back to work. And let us know what's happening, what progress is being made. And put the gripe lists back up in the elevators. At least they're fun to read on those elevator trips.

Dr. Lawrence McDonald. Atlanta urologist and the youngest member of the John Birch Society national committee, presented a review of history and a discussion of the Society . McDonald dedicated the major portion of his hour and twenty minute lecture to a discussion of the history of the West and how it parallels the history of communism. Beginning with medieval society, he discussed guild socialism and labeled the earmark of this period as stagnation. The world communist movement was traced back to 1776 when a parent organization was founded. According to Dr. McDonald, Karl Marx was merely a tl hack reporter" who was hired by communists to write the "Communist Manifesto"- The evolutionary theory of communism, socialism, was embraced by the Fabian Society of England, whose membership by NORMA SHAHEEN included George Bernard Shaw, Beatrice and Sidney Webb, and H.G.Wells. This group, said McDonald, realized that the battle for socialism would be won in the United States; and therefore, began to influence the colleges in this countryespecially through textbooks such as law and economics. Now, he says, most U.S. colleges and universities mis-educate students. A crisis in American history occurred in 1930 when Fabian Socialism gained control of the national Democratic Party, McDonald reported. The speaker noted that while socialism was conquering America, Russia was being attacked by communism. Dr. McDonald seemed to think these two movements were welded together by the Second World War. Beginning with U.S. diplomatic recognition of the Soviet Union in 1933, he traced in detail the path of World War II and commented that the USSR was the only power to profit from this conflict. Quoting a series of books and Birch writers, K.P. Detail Scenic Scot? So MADAMOISELLE is here using student models for a fashion feature on the Agnes Scott campus. It's a good thing they brought their own clothes, for couldn't you see an article on "How Agnes Scott Dresses?" I can see it now-a shot of convocation and one student sitting in a cluster of empty seats, avidly reading her NEWSWEEK dressed in a sun dress with her bathing suit on underneath. Or imagine the mailroom at the height of the 9:30 rush, a kaleidoscope of struggling figures several of which our camera picks out. They are garbed in various classroom outfits, from meenie-minis to linen sheaths. One mighty mo in her mini drops a letter and leans over to pick it up just as the camera clicks. That's one picture they won't be able to use. What about a shot in the dining hall at high noon, Sunday? Think of the contrast of a few darling spring suits against the cut-offs cum bare feet and hair rollers interspersed through the line. Or drape a few models in sleek spring fashions over a table or two, that is if you can get them between the dirty dishes. But then, the contrast of textures might be interesting. Next try a picture in the amphitheater, of course with swim suits. The trick here is to make everyone here look like they are dressed which of course they're not. And it has to include a few workmen leering over the top of the steps. One shot they'll have to get is the LDH, say at supper or during chapel. The cigarette smoke and soft soothing music set the scene for a shot of Scott's best denim and bell bottoms lounging amidst the smoke. One last picture. Well, really two. The library reserve room and all those beautiful hair curler constructions. They'd be good against some metallic dresses or something similar. And the last shot in the article. ..A silhouette against a sunset over Atlanta: a young miss in a hooD skirt and paraso! posing amid tne shadows cast by Main. That's really Vgnes Scckt, or is if he proved Roosevelt's complicity with communism. McDonald quoted noted liberal, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., in his attack of America's post war foreign policy which was characterized by backing down in the face of communism and refusing to help anti-communists in Eastern Europe: "At the same time, the US must not succumb to demands for an anti-Soviet crusade nor permit reactionaries in the buffer states to precipitate conflicts in defense of their own obsolete prerogatives." ("Partisan Review," May June, 1947, p. 239.) Richard Parry, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, challenged this point during the question period. Referring to the same issue of the "Partisan Review," Parry showed that Schlesinger was discussing fascism when he referred to anti-Soviet reactionaries-a point which Dr. McDonald failed to make clear to his listeners. Thus he challenged the whole basis for McDonald's analysis of America's post-war foreign policy. The five major problems of contemporary American society were also outlined by the speaker: Vietnam; the civil rights movement, which he described as a movement laid down by Lenin and Stalin; the current monetary crisis which is caused by Keynesian economics; disarmament, which McDonald identified as a "transfer of arms" to the UN; and the agricultural crisis. McDonald concluded his talk with a short history of the John Birch Society, and of Robert Welch, its founder. The purpose o f the Society is to build an informed electorate. During questioning, Dr. McDonald denied that the John Birch Societywas racist or anti-semitic. He also claimed that the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution was never legally passed. McDonald's whole lecture seemed to have been based on the assumption that Agnes Scott students were ignorant of history, He included enough of the facls to mislead a person who was not informed. But he quoted at least one passage completely out of context (as shown by Mr. Parry), and this leads one to doubt the validity of his arguments. APRIL 25.1969 PROFILE PAGE 3 Gray on 'Antigone 9 It was a proud production. Black friars of Agnes Soctt proudly presented a dramatic reading of Anne Allen's poetic- translation of Sophocles' ANT/GONE. Certainly it was the best of the many readings presented by the group in the last few years. The lighting, setting, and costuming created a feeling of dignity and simplicity worthy of the play itself. Acting was uneven, but generally good. It is regrettable, perhaps, that the play was chosen for a reading rather than for a full production. Miss Winter was proud of her cast. Miss Rentz was proud of her crew. And everyone was proud of Anne. Revelation! B.O.Z.'s name gift from past by CAPERS HUFFMAN A small group of struggling B.O.Z. had as little chance of writers is as typical of a small survival as a beached earthworm, woman's liberal arts college as the Not even the most tenacious lack of hot water and the scarcity committee, or club, can survive of interesting unattached males, without members. However, at Agnes Scott is no exception in any of these fields. Up until the beginning of last year, Scott had two writing clubs, B.O.Z. and Folio. At that lime the clubs merged and B.O.Z. became open to all classes. B.O.Z. was founded under the direction of Dr. J.D.M. Armistead in the fall of 1 9 1 5. The first club was made up of a group of students from the upper classes who had expressed an interest in creative writing. The purpose of the club was to encourage original work by meeting regularly to read aloud and discuss student work. For reasons held in deepest secrecy by the early members, or perhaps never known, the charter members named the club B.O.Z. from a pen name of Dickens. The new club took, name and all, and in 1916 'The Silhouette" could write about B.O.Z., that "it is a new stimulus to creative effort and is striving to form an atmosphere that will honor and encourage literary achievement." B.O.Z., however, had no equipment to stimulate the creative efforts of freshmen or to honor and encourage their literary achievements. To end this sad neglect, Mrs. C.W. Dieckmann, an instructor in the freshman English composition course, organized the Folio Club along lines similar to B.O.Z. As stated above, Folio died a natural death at the beginning of last year and freshmen were welcomed into the ranks of B.O.Z. The basic structure of the club is the same as it was before the merger. Interested students submit their work to the club during tryouts, usually held twice a year, at the beginning of Fall and Spring Quarters. The material is considered and the new members are voted in by the entire club. The club has three officers, a president, secretary, and historian, and very little other organization. The purpose of the meetings is an informal discussion of members' work with occasional critical comments by the club's sponser, Miss Margaret Trotter. There have been times in the recent past when it seemed that BAILEY Shoe Shop 142 Sycamore Street Phone DR-3-0172 present, B.O.Z. is alive and healthy in the Faculty Club on usually alternate Wednesdays. To at least one group of struggling writers, it offers both a captive audience for new work and badly needed constructive criticism. One can be fairly safe in saying that the cry for communication going around the campus has been heard by one and all. Realizing thai the paper is u primary means of reaching everyone in the campus community. Rep Council is delighted that it will have its own column this year. (And as Chairman of Publicity, I was volunteered to write the article. So, please don't spend all night searching vainly for a slim clue to any hidden journalistic abilities.) Clicking our spurs together, fidgeting with our lassos, and peering out from under the brims of our cowboy hats, we listened and some even participated in the first meeting of the 1969-70 council. Again, emphasis was on communication, and discussions at the April 8 meeting varied from campus dates to the sign-out policy to a proposed re-evaluation of the library system. We also tossed around the idea of an open Rep meeting to be held in the quad sometime this quarter. Encouraging words from Dr. Alston and Miss Scandrett were Repartee heard at the second meeting held al Miss Scandrett 's house on April 15.

Co -outaaori THE ROFILE VOLUME LV Number 22 Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 May 2, 1969 N S A - Is it for Agnes Scott ? The United States National Student Association (US-NSA) was founded in 1947 at the University of Wisconsin. Membership includes over 380 recognized college and university student governments, representing approximately 1.7 million students. At the 1968 summer convention, the Association approved the constituting of two groups - the National Student Institute (NSI) to handle traditional educational programs and the NSA corporation to be involved in lobbying for legislative change. NSA was originally an educational non-profit corporation funded by student dues and tax deductible gifts. In order not to jeopardize this tax standing and in the desire to form a potent political group, the new structure of US-NSA was approved. The new NSA branch was approved as a non-partisan lobbying body with power to support five major legislative items a year, subject to the approval of the annual congress. Major issues this year have been lowering the voting age to 18, liberalization of drug laws, draft opposition, educational reform and civil rights. The political action is financed through the student services division which offers discounts on life insurance, travel (US-NSTA), car purchasing, records and entertainment booking. Insurance, records and films brought in $ 1 00,000 in 1967. by ELIZABETH MATHES The student services division also offers a job placement bureau, cultural affairs program, national film festival, and a campus calendar and handbook for each student in a member university, according to the "New York Times." The NSI has received Federal foundation grants for projects on tutorial assistance, educational reform, community action, teacher evaluation, Vietnam, black power and two completed projects on drugs and student stress. Under one $315,000 grant from Ford Foundation, a national informational center on experimental education will be set up. In 1966, upon discovery that some US-NSA international projects had been funded covertly by the Central Intelligence Agency, US-NSA began to place its major emphasis upon domestic issues. The group embraces the entire political spectrum, from Wallace-ites to hard core revolutionaries, and as a result of its controversial pronouncements has a good deal of internal dissension. The liberal element tends to dominate the group, as do the large universities, as voting rights are based on population. Agnes Scott is entitled to send 1 delegate and 1 alternate. Resolutions passed at the 1968 convention include a statement ol liberalized drug laws; a condemnation of the USSR's intervention in Czechoslovakia, Warren exhibition opens; his environment influences art by CALLAWAY CUTLER and ALEXA MACINTOSH A "retrospective exhibition" of the works of Ferdinand Warren, N.A., retiring chairman of the Agnes Scott art department, will open May 4 at three in the afternoon. Included in this exhibition of about fifty items are oil paintings, water colors, enamels, graphics and encaustics from 1928-1969. The exhibition will continue through June 8. Born in 1899 in Independence, Missouri, Warren has been drawing and painting as long as he can remember. His early training was accomplished at Kansas City Art Institute where his studies were interrupted by World War I. In 1925 he was awarded a Tiffany Fellowship and continued his study in New York where he was deeply impressed with the city theme as a subject for his works. In 1950 he came to the University of Georgia as a research professor of art. The new environment of red earth, red sun, and pine groves stimulated him, adding more color to his work. In 1951 Dr.. McCain and Dr. Alston asked him to reorganize a badly neglected art department at Agnes Scott. Thinking that he would return to New York after getting the department back on its feet, he accepted. He has been at Agnes Scott ever since. Mrs. Pepe says "he and I came to Scott together. We were in the third floor of Buttrick. The fourth floor which was a huge vacant attic with Gothic rafters and bay windows was used as his studio and our gallery. We had lots of fun with artist coffees and experimental movies. That's still his room." When he came to Scott Mrs. Pepe says that "he was instrumental in getting the permanent gallery up since he and Harry L. Dalton were good friends." The N.A. after his name signifies membership in the National Academy of Design, to oldest art organization in the U.S. It is an honorary society of one hundred artists chosen for life. His membership was received in 1939. Mr. Warren is represented in permanent collections in such places as the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York City, the Brooklyn Museum, the Memorial Gallery of Rochester, New York, the Fine Arts Museum of the University of Georgia, the Atlanta Art Association and the University of Georgia Library. Among his most memorable experiences are painting the portrait of Robert Frost, creating the mural "History of the Printed Word," and painting war bond posters for World War II. Mr. Warren enjoyed doing the Frost portrait from life "very much. It was very inspiring; he has a ^^ -^M. 'fV' $ Ferdinand Warren shows some of the work that he has done in his many years here at Agnes Scott. fascinating face and I had been studying it every chance I could." When Robert Frost saw the finished portrait, he turned to Mr. Warren with tears in his eyes and said, "There's more of me in that portrait than there is me in me." In an interview Mr. Warren discussed his art style and his future. Believing that most artists change style, although not intentionally, he feels that his is a "reaction to the times." More recently he has been doing "abstractions from things heard, felt, smelt or whatever." For him "inspiration comes from a reaction to anything. An idea grows and there is the desire to say something about it. This builds up to a point of action." Usually he remains quiet about his ideas: "If I tell someone about something I want to paint, I usually end up not painting it because, having unloaded my idea with words, there's uo need to do a picture." "A painting grows with an idea. Some think an artist can visualize ahead of time what he's going to do. Not to me. I can't visualize an idea. A sketch comes first. To suit me a work needs artistic qualities and to say what I want it to say. If it doesn't have both of these things, I discard it." (CONT. ON P.4) equating its presence there with that of the US in Vietnam; a statement on racism which gave a mandate for a credentials committee to be formed to approve seating of SGA representatives at the next convention on the basis of efforts to combat institutionalized racism. Voting privileges will be denied to delegations whose schools have not attempted to comply with the suggested efforts. Investigations, involving expenditure of NSA funds, active pressure and special education projects aimed at admissions, faculty hiring, administration and curriculum were approved. A statement on birth control was also drawn up by Roman Catholic students. The major source of agreement at the 1968 convention was discontent. Robert Powell, new president of NSA stated that the differences among students at the convention were "so small," when compared with the differences between students and "those people who run this society." NSA has supported the legalization of the sale and possession of marijuana in affiliation with the American Civil Liberties Union. It has sponsored a tour by Biafran students in the US and has supported the farm workers boycott against manufacturers of California table grapes. There is feeling on the ASC campus that NSA programs are not beneficial to the student body or to the prestige of the school, that it is an useless expense. The following are comments from SGA officers and administrative leaders. Dr. Wallace M. Alston, president of the college, said that he felt it was "good for us to belong. NSA is a national student forum that is very necessary and important. It is a consultative body of national standing where all points of view can be expressed. Their findings and decisions are not binding upon us." He went on to say that NSA "has always passed resolutions different from my ideas and always will, but it is good for our insight into other student bodies." Cheryl Bruce, former NSA co-ordinator, "NSA is a way of getting people interested in what's going on off campus. I don't know if there's a better way. My big aim when I went in was to get people involved in it. The campus as a whole is tremendously apathetic; they don't even want to discuss it. Some people would beixtremely disappointed to see us pull out of a national organization, though." Dusty Kenyon, president of SGA, "No other groups speaks as strongly on anything. I feel it is a good way for ASC to sample student opinion. They really aren't binding on us and shouldn't be." "The question of Agnes Scott's affiliation with NSA is not one to which a simple "yes' or 'no' answer can be given,' Tina Brownley stated. "When I was President of Student Government, I intentionally did not bring up the question of our membership in NSA for active consideration because I felt that after the corporate division of NSA into two parts last summer we needed time to see in what directions the organization would go. "Agnes Scott definitely needs the stimulus of contact with other campuses over the country; NSA can provide this kind of contact, but only if we on our part are willing to make an active effort. At this point, we are not making the efforts necessary to realize any appreciable advantages from our association with NSA. "Speaking realistically, I think we have only two alternatives: make NSA work on this campus or get out. The failure of NSA at Agnes Scott is due not to the national organization but to student apathy here. "It certainly reflects poorly on us that if a campus referendum were held on NSA, the majority of students simply do not know enough about the organization to vote with any real insight on the issue." PAGE 2 THE PROFILE May 2, 1969 EDITOR MANAGING EDITOR , ASSOCIATE EDITOR ELIZABETH MATHES KAY O'BRIANT BEVERLY WALKER THE I PROFILE Features Campus News Business Manager J Photographer Janice Johnston Ginnv Simmons Sandra Parrish Tyler McFadden Views expressed in the editorial section of this publication are those of the majority of the editorial staff, unless signed by the author. They do not necessarily represent the opinion of the administration or the student body. Entered as second class mail at the Decatur, Ga., Post Office. Us or the outside world... Last Monday, Rep Council took up the question of National Student Association and Agnes Scott's place in it. Nothing definite was decided mainly because the two people with the most information concerning it were not there. This in itself was one of the major gripes about NSA; namely that the student body as a whole knows too little about what the organization can do for us and what we can contribute to it. What some students have heard they do not like, such as the Association's controversial stands on drugs and the War and Draft, questions which seem distant from Agnes Scott's ken. Not enough is known of the many benefits that the group offers, such as travel discounts, a popular record club and low cost insurance. But beyond the realm of what material rewards we can get out of NSA is the underlying concept of its real importance. That importance is in the coming together of students and the resulting exchange of opinion. Or in the words of Dr. Alston, its worth lies in its use as an "invaluable national student forum." Agnes Scott has to accept the fact that it will probably be in the minority opinion on a great number of issues. That in itself does not put us in the wrong, only in a smaller segment of opinion. There are not as many schools in the South that stay in NSA as other regions of the country. The South has gained a reputation for quickly wounded pride and an unwillingness to listen to all sides of a question objectively. Southern schools have also had a tendency to bolt the conventions with little provocation. Let us not put Agnes Scott in that category by hasty action on our part. Another fact that many people seem to overlook is that NSA's legislative decisions are not binding upon a school. The school has to sign legislation if it wants to show its support. This writer does not personally agree with the aforementioned stands on the war, draft, and drugs. But she does agree with the drive to lower the voting age to 18 and various other projects. The problem at Agnes Scott seems to stem from the poor job done by the NSA co ordinators in the past two years. Ignorance and distrust have grown up concerning the job and the power wielded by it. One member of Rep Council Monday in discussing the voting privilege of the co ordinator bemoaned "the danger inherent in investing that much power in one or two delegates." But there is evidenced a willingness to build up an NSA organization on campus. With a good co ordinator, this could be done. The number of petitions for the now-vacant post of co ordinator supports this optimism. There is interest on campus; there can be more with time and effort. NSA can give us much; we can give it more. This is 1969, and there does exist a whole different world above the Mason-Dixon line. Agnes Scott would not be true to herself and what she has stood for for 80 years, if she turned her back now on the outside world. We as students, would not be true to ourselves if we turned our backs on our fellow students. If we do not stand together, there is little hope of changing the world. And if we do not stand with NSA, there is little hope of changing the students to our way of thinking or even to the knowledge of our way of thinking. Kav Parkerson O'Briant Spellman SGA goes for broke-and wins! by NORMA SHAHEEN The student body president of Spellman College spoke at Agnes Scott last Thursday, and 725 students missed a fascinating lecture. Betty Ann Childers, Spellman's retiring SGA president, was invited by the Forum and spoke about the revoluntionary rule changes which Spellman students agitated for and received last October. Miss Childer made her SC.A's accomplishments sound very easy. Classifying Spellman with most colleges, she said it was undergoing a "period of change and Awakening." She recounted how SGA examined its constitution and then abolished all rules and regulations concerning dormitory and social life, such as curfews. Actually the story has a little more to it. SGA's action followed some weeks of student interest and discussion. Followingthe vote for abolishment, SGA members went to all dormitories explaining their action and asking for comments and discussion. They also asked the students not to take advantage of their new privileges that night-but to wait until the administration found out about it the next day. SGA saw the action as an assertion of maturity, Betty Ann said, for the college's role is not to regulate one's comings and goings. The student leader emphasized that the action was not to condone staying out all night-rather an assertion of the principle that this decision was up to the individual. In the face of complete administration hostility to SGA's action, the students consented to a compromise solution. Now any student who receives her parents' permission has unlimited curfew. Sixty percent of the students have obtained such permission. These girls get an ID card which they show the nightwatchman Betty Ann also commented on the problem of apathy, which Spellman seems to have in common with Agnes Scott. She emphasized the predicament of the SGA which must strive to represent the apathetic majority as well as the active minority. Spellman's ideas and problems have much relevance for Agnes Scott. The Forum is to be commended for its attempt to show this relevance to ASC students. Overheard Blase Sophomore: * l Mr. Fowler thinks Fm cute." Disgruntled Junior and friend: "You know, we read that three weeks ago. How am I supposed to remember it?" "Well, you said you had a photographic memory." "1 haven't developed that film yet." The John Birch man: "The whole world watches America and America watches television." Franklin on Afro history by BEVERLY WALKER J Associate Editor Dr. John H. Franklin a noted Negro historian spoke on "The Future of Afro-American History" at Fmory last Tuesday. Dr. Franklin presently heads the department of history at the University of Chicago. The author of several books, Dr. Franklin is a noted scholar of the Civil War and Reconstruction era. Dr. Franklin's talk centered on tnc mas ana inadequate representation of historians, such as Beard and Bancroft concerning America's past history. The Negro's importance and contributory role are disregarded in these interpretations. Dr. Franklin emphasized the importance of "revision" in history. The history taught in our schools he said, should be such that it recognizes the role of all people in our history as "prescribed by justice not pride." (He refers to the idea given by- textbooks that America's past is filled only with glory, honor, victory and an American image where all are undoubtedly equal...) The white author's omission of the credible deeds of Negroes suggests Negro inferiority. Dr. Franklin said we are experiencing a demand in recent years for recognition of this history. Part of the Black Revolution in demanding courses on Negro history stems from the idea that "an understanding of the past assists people in understanding their own importance." In the question period following the talk the question was raised concerning how much minority groups can take credit lor the upsurge in black history. Dr. Franklin replied that they (minority groups) can take credit for a certain kind of currency, but not for any major breakthroughs. There is an increase in the number of people involved but the ferment has been going on for a generation. The people making these demands are standing on a firm platform. Dr. Franklin did say thai "after the Black Revolution higher education will never be the same." As a result of pressure to include black history courses, many administrators can not find competent people in these fields. For example, qualifications for a prof to teach Fnglish lit would vary considerably from those required to teach Negro literature. Dr. Franklin concluded that wc need j new reassessment of American History. We must be willing to criticize the past including institutions and men. Dr. Franklin also warned that Negro-American history should not become a significant tool for political purposes. He stressed the importance of history as a "sobering influence" and a type of "balance-wheel in American experience." Aurora's growth - from annual to magazine by CAPERS HUFFMAN Agnes Scott has a literary magazine. Not only does it have one now but it has had one since 189.1. From 1891 to 1899, the Agnes Scott literary magazine was the "Mncmosy nean," named for the mother of the Muses. The "Mnemosyncan" was founded by the literary society of the same name. At that time the "Aurora" was the school annual, although both publications were open to poetry, essays, and all sorts of general information. The old "Aurora's" in the library are worth looking through if only for the sake of the pictures and the wonderful general information contained therein, l or instance, in 1X99 the music curriculum included a course in Mandolin. The v4 Aurora" became a literary magazine in the school year 1900-1901. At first, it was published monthly. Later, it came out quarterly and, finally, it was published only two or three times a year. At that time it was the joint effort of the school's two literary societies. The literary societies, it seems, put on all I he scilOOJ plays ueioie Blackfnars was founded and gave numerous literary teas. All this activity may explain why they published progressively fewer "Aurora's" as lime passed. Then again it just may be that I hey had as much (rouble with their printer as the present Aurora staff does. loday. the "Aurora" publishes student poetry, essays, short stories, and art work. Usually there is more poetry than anything else because, it seems, even at men's colleges, more students are working on the great American poem than on the great American novel. If the "Aurora" has any purpose except perpetuating itself, it is to show the campus community and anyone else willing to read the magazine what Scott students are writing. "Aurora" also offers the student the encouragement of seeing her work in print. F inally, it gives the beginning writers on campus, both those who are published and those who are not, a chance to compare their work with that of other students. M;iv 2, 1969 THE PROFILE PAGE 3 'Twelth Nl theatrical bv CAROLYN GRAY Lt Up! up! my Friend, and quit your books; Or surely you'll grow double: Up! up! my Friend, and elear your looks; Why all this toil and trouble?-Wordsworth Thai is to say, it* your last memory of Shakespeare is a missing footnote at 3 a.m., you've missed the point. Shakespeare never wrote for the library or for the classroom, he wrote for the stage. And he did it quite well. A delightful example is the Alliance Resident Theatre production of TWELFTH NIGHT. In addition to being an Shakespearean comedy, it's a very funny play. As in the 1-lizabethan theatre, the play is performed on only one set. The curtain is never drawn. Unobtrusive lighting changes vary the focus* and mood of the setting. The cast obviously enjoys the play. The only slow moments are the clown's rather painfully executed mandolin tunes. Llaine Kerr plays a wonderfully vivacious Viola. Her gusty asides to the audience and addresses to Sir Toby, her reaction to Olivia's professions of love, her bravado ghf opens birthdays and cowardice charm the audience Albert Quinton is a lusty, lovely Sir Toby, but often overshadowing him comically is his dupe. Sir Andrew Aguecheek (David Cold). The audience delights in the downfall of the sour Malvolio (Bernard Kates), steward to the infatuated mourner Olivia (Claudette Nevins). Director Michael Howard is to be commended for imaginative use of stage movement. 1 invite you, 1 urge you to see TWELFTH NIGHT. I only regret that you will miss the absurd ending the audience experienced on opening night, April 23. After the last curtain call, Shakespeare stroried onstage in a costume just a little too small around the middle, put on his bifocals, and read his latest work, a birthday poem for himself and Michael Howard. The audience joined the cast in singing "Happy Birthday" to the playwright and director as the cake was brought out and balloons were distributed. A good time was had by all. And many an Atlanta matron left with an orange balloon over her shoulder. Opera arrives here for week of music by ALEXA MACINTOSH and MARY MARTIN The Metropolitan Opera Company is coming to Atlanta's opera week beginning May 5. The six operas will be night performances at the new Civic Center, except "La Boheme" which will be a matinee. According to Mr. Michael McDowell, chairman of the music department the civic center will hold five hundred to six hundred more people than the Fox Theater. In conjunction with opera week Mr. McDowell emphatically urges that although "opera is interesting and varied vocal music which anyone can enjoy, it is necessarry since opera has a plot and is generally performed in the original language, that some advance preparations be made so that the story may be enjoyed." Books for this purpose are available in the library. Another reason for studying the opera beforehand, according to Mr. McDowell, is so that one will not be disappointed when what was thought to be a tragedy is really a comedy! On opening night a new production of "Der Rosenkavalier" by Strauss will be presented with Regine Crespin as the leading lady. "Faust" by Gounod will be the second night's performance. On Wednesday, Anna Moffo, whom Mr. McDowell calls "one of Atlanta's favorite singers" will star in Verdi's "Rigoletto," which is taken from the play "Le Roi s'amuse" by Victor Hugo. "Adriena Le Crouvriere" by Frances Cilea, a nineteenth century contemporary of Puccini, will be presented on Thursday with Franco Corelh and Renata Tebaldi as leading man and lady respectfully. According to Mr. McDowell, "This is not one of the great tragedies, but it is very pleasant musically." A comedy, barber of Seville," which Mr. McDowell refers to as "almost slapstick" will be performed Friday. It is the work of Rossini and stars Roberta Peters. "La Boheme" by Puccini is the Saturday matinee performance. Saturday night's performance of Verdi's "AI Trovatore" will be a new production with Radmila Bakocevic, a new singer, as the lead and James McCracken as tenor. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor: I want to commend you Junior Jaunters for the lovely community service you performed on Saturday. Many were the children who would agree with the little girl who said, "I'm so much having fun I wish we could come every Saturday." Constance Shaw Ma/.lish Editor's Note: The Profile joins with Mrs. Mazlish in congratulating a job well done. Margret Trotter has just had a short story of hers published in the current "Georgia Review". The story is entitled, "The Birthday Party" and joins the long line of her previous published work. Romaine lauds ASC dance program gala by MARYLU ROMAINE If the Agnes Scott Dance Group is the most creative group on campus, it is because the young women forming its numbers have clothed with imagination and perception their pride and joy in the movement of their own bodies. The beauty of their Spring Concert performance was undoubtedly fused with the spirit of Miss Carolyn By rum, director, who knows her art: the necessity of demanding technical perfection while allowing the group the freedom of collective interpretation. It was this balance of limitation and license that produced the quality of performance Friday night: the variation in lighting from a purple haze to bright stage lights; in sound from the pluck of a banjo or swell of a symphony to rain and the Midnight Special; in costuming from a full-length Korean kimona to the puffed-sleeve blouse and floral skirt of a West Virginia Mountain girl; and in styles from the grace of a minuet to the ecstacy of the buck dance. Two exciting shorts in the program were "Design" and the Korean Drum dance. In "Design," Tricia Lindsay's gift of organized movement as natural as breathing brought grace to the study of duo-motion now in harmony, now in antitheses. Gin Crane, romantic in filmy aqua kimona and torso length braid, expressed her knowledge of the rhythmic refinement of the oriental dance, and matched it with technical skill in producing the difficult drum beat. Miss Crane's, understanding of the musical expression of another country was unfortunately not matched by the conception of other dancers of music of sub-cultures within their own society. Perhaps it was easier to dance to the rhythm of the Andy-Williams-type rendition of "Go Down Moses," but neither movement nor commercialized music expressed the struggle from which this black spiritual was born, Similarly, use of bastardized musical versions of venerables like "Cripple Creek," one of the most popular hoedowns, and "Single Girl," another traditional Appalachian song, was regrettable. However, the humor Repartee by SUSI BORCUK What role should NSA (National Student Association) play here at Agnes Scott? Is it relevant to the needs of our campus? These are the key issues around which the debate on NSA was centered at this Tuesday's Rep Council meeting. Fveryone there agreed that the relationship which Scott has had with the Association in the past has been a relatively passive one, and, if we continue to belong, we must somehow activate the program here on campus. Alternatives were proposed, however. One would be to pull out completely and reroute the unused money (estimated around $400 this year for airline expenses) in a more constructive manner. Another alternative would be to pay the $46.20 national and regional dues and forget the idea of paying round trip plane fares to send the delegates to the convention. This would allow Scott the prestige of belonging' and the benefits offered to students by the Association. Before it comes to a decision, Rep Council feels it should hear more from those who have been connected with NSA in the past, and, almost more importantly, from the rest of the student body. Make yourself heard The next time you pass your friendly student government representative, yank her aside and demand to know the facts about NSA. I guarantee you that she will be more than happy to hear that you are interested. (Rumor has it that few people outside those directly involved in the debate even know what the letters stand for; few realize that Agnes Scott belonged to it this year; and even fewer recognize that the continuation of our membership as it now stands is being challenged.) of this final work, "Sourwood Mountain," the gaiety expressed in the technically exciting expression of the hoedown and buck dancing styles, and the charm of Judy DeWitt, who never loses her oldness, is commendable. The second selection of Part I, "Nightmare," captured all the horror of a Freudian dream. The gauze-draped stage of figures, the moans and hysterical laughter, and the furtive leaps of the dancer-dreamer enclosed each watcher in the sub-conscious drama. The horror of the scene was reversed later in the program with "Morphic," a ludicrous antitheses of the anxiety of "Nightmare." This dance, ostensibly restricted by ribbons held by a central dancer and attached to each of the other five, was transformed, by means of percussive sounds of drums, tape recorder squeals, bird-like twitters and props of hoops, a wheeled cart, a chair and a drum for a turtle-person s h e 1 1 - p re s t o ! --a hilarious do-your-own-thing psychedelia. Perhaps the most perceptive performances were those which used all or a majority of the dancers--the psychological statement of total peace and stillness and acceptance of self, and the contrasting statement of anxiety.

Tumblin, Jr., Professor of Sociology and Anthropology, have been selected to participate in a two-summer seminar on South Asia. They will spend "eight weeks during the 1969 summer at Syracuse University (June 16-August 8) in an intensive, multidisciplinary seminary on the history, cultures, peoples, and problems of South Asia." A second eight-week seminar will be held in India during the summer of 1970. Agnes Scott is one of fifteen colleges in the United States to be chosen to participate. The selection of Miss Thimester and Mr. Tumblin was based on the qualifications they have in their fields as their "further interest in the international scene." According to Miss Thimester, their travel experience and linguistic aptitude were also important. Miss Thimester, who participated in a similar program at Duke last summer, said that the seminar would be study-packed. Miss Thimester and Mr. Tumblin will prepare for the seminar by reading from a list prepared by Syracuse University. This summer at Syracuse they will spend two hours each day in lectures and another two hours in discussions. The lectures, all members of the Association for Asian Studies, are well-known specialists in a wide variety of fields. These include economics, sociology, history, political science. In addition to the lectures and discussions, the members of the seminar will spend ten hours each week studying Hindi in order to work with field specialists in India. "The program in India will include initial orientation lectures by distinguished Indian public figures and scholars, further Hindu language training and five weeks of serious investigation through interviews, seminars, and briefings of major themes essential to informed pedagogy..." They will also spend two weeks travelling locally and studying independently in their fields. Miss Thimester explained that the overseas program is confined to India at present because of the uncertainty of travel expense and security in other parts of South Asia. Upon completion of these programs, Mr. Tumblin and Miss Thimester will include their experiences in their courses here. From the Syracuse seminar Miss Thimester hopes to see further suggestions to the Curriculum Committee on new courses of course-expansions. Also to grow from this set of seminars are help for future independent studies and perhaps a Seminar on Asia. THE MOVIE 4 "UNDER THE BLACK MASK" will be shown Monday, May 5, in Room 3 at 12 and 4 p.m. The movie is an introduction to Central African Culture examining in detail works of primitive art in the former Beligan Congo.

THE ATLANTA URBAN CORPS (AUC) striving to involve students in the crises of American cities, provides an opportunity to work on problems in Atlanta. Agnes Scott students have a disadvantage in that we have no Federal Work Study Program (FWSP). The money source for an individual's salary comes 80 per cent from FWSP and 20 per cent from the agency. Because we don't have FWSP funds we are lacking 80 per cent unless AUC has sucess in raising enough money for us. Some agencies have agreed to pay the full 100 per cent. Southern Regional Education Board has put up $20,000 which will support about 20 students at 100 per cent; Fulton County Health Department-ten at 100 per cent; and Vista-25 at 100 per cent Question: What^ if any. relevance do you see in the National Student Association (NSA) for Agnes Scott? Have you ever utilized N S A ' s opportunities? Fran Ellington, 4 72: "Why don't they have more publicity about NSA so I can't answer questions like that?" Although he says "subject varies according to my reaction to things," he is very interested in the city theme as much of his work done during his stay in New York shows. His colors are greatly influenced by environment: in New York most of his oils were dominated by dark colors; whereas, in the South his work is influenced by the deep red earth and bright sun. The art of today for Warren "can be like sitting down in a chair a certain way-it's a happening. It is not created to last. Some sculpture is made that blows itself up at a certain time. This may be a rathering disturbing commentary on our times." In regard to teaching at Scott Mr. Warren says he enjoyed it very much "when students take an artistic point of view. Yet it takes a lot out of a painter; you have to talk about aesthetics so much that there's not much left of you when you stand before a canvas." After leaving here he plans to "keep on painting" and to "play golf" (he is inspired after a hole-in-one last year). Mrs. Pepe expressed our feelings about Mr. Warren's retirement when she said, "I think he's a terrific teacher because his students do not all have to paint exactly like him. They all seem to have their own styles. He's quiet, not a flamboyant teacher. I think we will really miss him."

Oh, I agree, the pigeons and squirels have a corner on the furry-feather contingent at Scott, but I'm talking of real animals, like kittens, puppies, ducks, and other cute little critters. The few animals that do manage to so worm themselves into our affections that they are brought to this seat of learning, do not find an understanding reception in the Dean's offace. And so Maurice, Juan. Harvey and other friends join the ranks of the dear departed. (iirls are driven to great lengths to compensate for a normal girl- animal relationship. Witness the many students furtively petting their rat in experimental psych, knowing t he horrible late that awaits it at the end of the course. Also notice the many girls desperately clutching their date on weekends and indulging in what else but petting, to lay at rest their animal oriented urges. I put forward five reasons in support of the institution of an animal policy on campus. First such a policy would eliminate the aforementioned inclination for ersatz animal companionship. Secondly, the responsibility of caring for a pet would greatly benefit a future home maker. Thirdly, such an undertaking would greatly stimulate connected industries in Atlanta, such as feed shops and veternarians-Agnes Scott must think of the outside world. Fourthly, we would be helping to eliminate the abundance of furry orphans at the Humane Society- Agnes Scott has always been forward in her charity work. And finally think of what a nice place it would be with our little friends scampering around the campus- a very pleasing picture. Of course there would be a few problems connected ith the new regime. To prevent bickering among the young, dorms would have to be set up on the basis of kinds of animals Main could be dog-land, with complementary animals allowed, such as fish, birds and crocodiles Rebekah would be the cat sanctuary, with snakes and ducks too. Rooms would be assigned on the basis of the size of your pet- the larger animal would get the larger room (Would you like a room that a girl with a german shepherd coveted?) Any dispute between the creatures could be referred to house council with new committees set up to provide for expected occurances. Say a committee to decide fights and another to judge damage resulting from improper disposal of products of natural body functions. I he security force would be no longer needed. Instead the dogs could take rotating duty guarding the campus. Weekends otherwise frivolously spent could be used to care for the animals. Wouldn't that make a beautiful picture 7 The setting sun over Agnes Scott; the bark of a dog, the ducks and birds settling in for the night, the cats curling up on the beds and the crocodile turning over in his bathtub. Who knows 7 The pigeons may get jealous and leave. MAY 16, 1969 PROFILE PAGE 3 'Sea GulV panned - no emotional involvement by GINNY SIMMONS The trek out to the Emory Cinema for "Seagull" was one of the more interesting points of the week. As 1 had been warned, the film contained absolutely no action. Instead it was held together and carried forward merely by suspense. Unfortunately, the suspense tended to be overdone and ludicrous. For example, the film began with melodramatic flashes of Nina riding frantically through the thicket, and of the house, where everything was forebodingly still. During this burdomsome and stiflingly pregnant silence one tends to notice the jerkiness of the filming. This same effect extended throughout the film. Elaborate silences and overdone symbolism push the audience beyond enjoyment into conscious analysis. Performances did the same thing. Simone Signoret, as Irkadina, portayed the elegant actress of the play as a self-centered star. David Warner, playing her son, Constantine, emerged as an incompetent and disilusioned would-be playwrite. In the Chekhov play Constantine was a sensitive budding author. The big-name stars in the film, James Mason and Vanessa Redgrave, did only a creditable job. Mason's Trigorin seemed flat even after his impressive speech at the lakeside. Vanessa Redgrave had some good moments, but overall she seemed to be too mature for the innocent Nina that Chekhov wrote. As for the "stuff" of the play, Chekhov's theme is covered up by the brilliant display of unhappiness in the film. In the play itself, love is a subordinate problem. The basic statement concerns talent, the artist's vanity, and ambition. Only familiarity with the play would glean these elements from the film. They are well-concealed under the strained chain of lovers and their fretful manueverings. Anne Allen, *69, signs a copy of "Counterpoint" at an autograph party given soon after the publication of her book of poetry. Switchboard - Scottie's connection with Life! A scene from "Flower," an animated Japanese film by Yoji Kuri, and one of the offerings in the "Kinetic Art" series now at the Atlanta Memorial Arts Center. Unknown to many of us, Mrs. Mary Whitley and Mrs. Ester Barnett perform a job crucial to most Scotties as telephone operators. Few know, in addition, what goes on behind the room with the wierd blue light. Our switchboard consists of 30 lines coming in and 1 1 going out. According to Mrs. Whitley, this is sufficient, as many students have private phones. There is, however, a time limit of 5 minutes if someone is waiting to use the phone. The equipment is relatively new; 5 years ago operators had to dial each individual number instead of merely plugging in a wire. In addition to working the switchboard, the operators train the student aid, a job in itself. It takes 1 5 hours and several broken calls to train an operator. One student just happened to be on training when this reporter was at the switchboard, and had just cut off Sylvia Chapman in the middle of a conversation. Poking her head in the door, Sylvia said that it didn't matter; she had cut off the business manager once when he was in a pay phone and didn't have another dime. Commenting on some of the interesting calls that come into the switchboard, Mrs Whitley stated "we're an information center, that's for sure!" Calls inquiring about the observatory are a nuisance, since the operators didn't even have a window to look out of to see whether the sky is clear. Suprisingly, the switchboard does not have many crank calls. There was a problem, however, when our phone number was printed in the Technique as being FREAKS 1. For about a week, operators answered only to hear a "Hey - it really works!" Then, there was the person who asked to speak to Agnes Scott. "He really did believe that there was an Agnes," commented Mrs. Whitley. "It's fascinating; no two days are alike." High's 'Kinetic Art 9 series has fine foreign films by KAY O'BRIANT "The Kinetic Art", a program of 26 films of various lengths, will be shown at the Atlanta Memorial Art Center in three parts on May 16, 23 and 30, at 1 :30 p. m. The films, all but one foreign, represent a sampling of work being produced by the new wave artists and directors of today. The works range from 55 seconds to 55 minutes and are divided into three programs which will be shown on alternative nights. The films are as different from each other as they are from the usual cinematic offering. Some are cartoons, such as an Italian one titled "Life in a Tin (Can)", and a delightful French offering entitled "Spiderelephant." Others are "regular" films, distinguished by their use of camera, unique story line or just overall effect. Two even use marionettes to act out the producer's intent. A preview showing was presented to the press recently. Another selection of this same program was seen by this reporter over a year ago in Washington. Repetition did not mar the effect of some of these films, it only proved the genius present in most. If anything, the films that were repeats for me were more enjoyable, because 1 could relax, secure in the knowledge of the outcome, and concentrate on the director's intent, method, and catching details that escaped before. Perhaps a sampling of some of the films would give a better idea of the program. 4 4 Phenomena", the only American work represented, is a series of light images that shift and merge in an everchanging pattern. Some of the effects are kaleidoscope, while others are, well, indescribable. The three cartoons on the program, "Life in a Tin", "Spiderelephant" an( j "The Magician" are all excellent. They use no dialog and are certainly not beamed at a children's level (but a child would enjoy them nonetheless.) The colors are gorgeous and the drawing definitely not Walt Disneyish. One Italian film "II Ciudice" has several faults. This is the only film with subtitles (and I can't remember any that are dubbed either). The spoken Italian is too loud against the subtitles that sometimes run below the edge of the screen. Also this was a difficult film to understand symbolically, and the good camerawork went unnoticed with all the other distractions. Definitely a film to see more than once and to ponder over. One last film deserves mention. This was a Hungarian flick called, "Elegia". A symbolic presentation of world events in everyday actions, it has a true poetic quality. The camera work is magnificent and the impact is powerful. Scenes range from wild horses to trolley cars to a bloody slaughterhouse, none of which are easily forgotten. Definitely don't miss this one if you can help it. It's too bad that a show like this will probably be seen by only a few people. Do try to get to one of the three programs. You're only depriving yourself if you don't. Repartee SUSIE BORCUK Agnes Scott will remain a member of NSA for the 1969-70 school year. At the May 5th meeting, a roll call vote showed 17 against and 7 for Carolyn Cox's motion to suspend our membership in NSA for one year (during which a study of the situation might be made, and, according to provisions made by Rep Council, the funds used in another way). Before the vote was taken, various possibilities were discussed at great length. Cheryl Bruce, a former NSA coordinator, seemed to feel that sending delegates to the convention in Dallas is a tremendous expense for our small budget, but that it might be beneficial to send one major officer, who would best be in a position to communicate with the rest of the student body. On the other hand, Elizabeth Crum presented AA's suggestion that we subscribe to the services offered by NSA, but send no delegates to the convention. Augmenting Elizabeth Mathes' recommendation that an effective committee be set up to assist the NSA co-ordinator, Cassandra Brown proposed that we renew our membership for one more year on a strictly trial basis. Discussion followed each of these major suggestions. Word to the informed Rebekahians: Date parlors are to date in-not to study in.

Panel faces problems of feminist movement by MARY LOU ROMA1NE "You have to convince women there is a problem," commented one member of a panel discussion on Women's Liberation organized by the Forum. A panel of Emory grads and undergrads focused on woman's position in three primary areas: as student--a role in which woman is intellectually equal, but socially sub-servient ; as psychological being-woman is nun, epitomy of goodness, prostitute, epitomy of sexual prowess, or mother, a combination of the two; and as worker in the society, fulfilling one of four roles of wife, servant, sexpot, or career girl. Emphasis throughout the meeting was on the distortion and corruption that these stereotyped patterns bring to the lives of both men and women. If woman is limited to passive, stable, intuitive roles, man is confined to theopposite ones. It is as dishonest to place the male in abnormal, purely aggressive roles as it is to teach the female that her only worth is her sexual being Reinforcing the opposition to woman's role as mere beauty queen (by stereotyped concepts of physical beauty) was a mostly | u m orous film of the demonstration protesting the f968 Miss America contest ("Brains and Body, mostly bod. Inc.") If you still weren't convinced there were facts: 1) In | l >60, 8 5' of women who worked made less than 15000 a year. 2) The largest proportion ot w. o in l' n w h o work hold uncreative jobs. 33% of working women who work have clerical jobs; the next largest segment have blue collar jobs; and the next have service jobs-jobs as maids or cooks, not protected by minimum wage. 3) There is a decrease in the number of women working in professional jobs. Of women working in 1940, 45% held professional jobs; today only 38% are working as professional. Questions and answers were varied, covering abortion, the right of woman to decide for or against life as a housewife, the tactics used by the liberation movement, and the relation of Civil Rights to Women's Liberation, This last brought questions' of problems within the movement. The problem of inequalities in women's rights is more obscure than the race problem. Women have difficulty organizing: They're "programmed to compete with one another," women are isolationists, fearing to become close to another woman. Previous winning works are now on display in the lobby of Presser. Last year's first prize was awarded to Betty Whitaker while second prize went to Ruth Ann Hatcher. Those students interested in submitting an entry should notify Deborah Ann Claiborne. THE EMORY PLAYERS will open their production of "The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade" on Thursday, May 15, at 8:30 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial Building Auditorium Advance tickets are on sale now for one dollar. The "Best Play of 1966;' Marat/Sade has been variously hailed as filthy, moral, sensual, and prophetic. Set in post-revolutionary Napoleonic France, the elements are clowns, theater of cruelty, asylum, ritual, satire, songs, war and revolution. The assassination ritual is set within a larger scene of the Charenton Asylum in the year 1808.

McCain was named to a newly created position of vice-president for development; Miss Julia T. Gary was made dean of the faculty; and Miss Roberta K. Jones was appointed dean of students. The addition of new personnel to the campus is more significant by the fact that the three appointments were made within one year: PAUL MOFFATT McCAIN has been the president of Arkansas College for the past seventeen years. He is the son of the late James Ross McCain, second president of Agnes Scott. His niece, Evelyn Brown, is presently a sophomore at ASC. Before becoming president of Arkansas College, McCain was professor of history at Brenau College. He has also taught military history at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He earned his Ph.D. in history at Duke University. Under McCain's leadership, Arkansas College has moved to a new 100-acre campus, initiated cooperative programs with other colleges and universities in the region, and completed a long-range expansion program. His primary responsibilities at Agnes Scott will be in the area of capital fund expansion. JULIA THOMAS GARY has been an associate professor of chemistry at ASC since I960. She became assistant dean of faculty in 1962 and associate dean of faculty in I 967. Before coming to ASC, Miss Gary was an instructor at Mount Holyoke C ollege and at Randolph-Macon Woman's College. She has done special study at the Oak Ridge Institute of Nuclear Studies, Tufts University, and the University of Illinois. She is a member of Alpha Delta Pi, Phi Beta Kappa ( Randolph-Macon), and Sigma Xi ( Emory). ROBERTA K. JONI S will become the second dean of students (by title) in the college's eighty year history. She has been associate dean at Valdosta State College for the past two years and was formerly on the staff of the dean of students at Ohio Slate University, where she was director of a co-educational residence hall. She was on the dean\ staff at the University of Georgia for six years. When asked to comment on her new job at ASC, she stated: "My job at Agnes Scott is more than a job. I see it in three ways: as a major stage of my career, to some degree as a way of life, and of course as a livelihood to be pursued. I believe any woman entering a profession must put all of these facets of her work into perspective along with her goal to be herself. All of these facets should enhance a personal life which is satisfying and fulfilling, and I believe I will be able to achieve this combination at ASC. "My conception of the role of a Dean is something like a jack-of-all-trades. She is a generalist rather than a specialist because of the demands of the role: education, administration, counseling .... I believe in learning by doing and providing an opportunity for doing." QUO VADIS, AGNES? Roberta K. Jones, dean of students\ Steele profile of Scotties uncovers hidden strengths K, nCDDIT lAnniM by DEBBIE JORDAN Miss Laura Steele, Director of Admissions, is, of course, the most informed source of information on "the Scott girl." Responsible for gathering personal data on all applicants to be used by the admissions board, she, in return, dispatches information on Scott and Scott girls. When interviewed about a general profile of the student body, Miss Steele readily offered facts and figures about this year's freshman class, the only class for which this type of information is approximately correct. She commented, however, that the Registrar's Office is hesitant about publishing a detailed list of criteria because of the "built in anxiety it might create for the high school student who fears that she might not meet the requirements or fit in at Agnes Scott." Miss Steele explained further, "In considering a girl for admission, we don't examine her record to see if her interests are unusual. We are, of course, concerned if they look out of line in that she might have a struggle here - especially academically." The admission requirements do not vary from year to year. It has been observed by many people that each class has certain widespread characteristics that make it noticeably different from the other classes. Miss Steele claims that this is "just coincidence ." Therefore the facts on the freshman class can be considered representative of the entire student body This is the second largest freshman class, the first largest being the class of 1969. There are 29 states and six foreign countries represented, with about 67% of the freshmen coming from outside Georgia. Public schools graduated 87%, while 1 3% attended private or parochial high schools. There are 1 1 newspaper editors, two literary magazine editors, and 17 annual editors. Fifty-nine served on student council, ten were DAR Good Citizens, and six are National Merit Scholars. A national fencing champion, Georgia's 1968-69 Junior Miss, and an almost-Olympic swimmer round out the class. These are the kinds of girls that make up the Scott student body. What about the future? Miss Steele was most firm in stating that admissions have not slacked off. The freshman class for next year is expected to be one of the largest in the history of the college. It will include students from thirty states and four foreign countries (Brazil, Belgium, Korea, and Germany). Seventy-four per cent are from outside the State of Georgia. Florida is next to Georgia in number of students from a single state, with South Carolina and North Carolina third and fourth. Eighty-seven per cent of the freshmen are graduates of public schools, and thirteen per cent are graduates of independent or parochial schools. Nineteen freshmen are daughters of alumnae, eight are granddaughters of alumnae and five are sisters of present students or alumnae. There are fifteen editors of school papers, six editors of literary magazines and eighteen editors of school year books among the freshmen. Seventy-five were members of student councils, twenty-one were cheerleaders, one hundred sixty-six were members of school honor societies, and fifteen attended Governor's Honors Programs in their states. Nineteen attended Girls State, with one serving as governor and another as secretary. A number of freshmen have awards on a state or national basis. There are nine who have scholarships through the National Merit Scholarship Program, and over thirty others who received recognition in the National Merit Program as finalists or commended students. There is a General Motors Scholar in the class. Other special scholarships based on merit come through the National Honor Society, the Betty Crocker competition, and two state oratorical contests. There is a 4-H state winner, a recipient of a Danforth award, and other special awards. Represented in the freshman class are "Miss Congeniality" in the Miss Teenage Richmond Contest, the first flutist in the Denver (Colorado) concert band, the 1968 Slate of Georgia tennis doubles champion, and several DAR Good Citizens. Also Miss Steele sees "no great increase in transfers." She said, "We are not sending more transcripts this year than last." She cited definite figures for the present upperclassmen at Scott: "Ninety-five per cent of last year's juniors returned as seniors, 75% of the sophomores returned as juniors, and 81% of the freshmen returned as sophomores." "Next year the junior class will loose a substantial number when twelve go on the junior year abroad." She continued, "People who drop out do not usually do so for academic reasons. There is usually, however, another reason which keeps them from functioning academically." Despite student gossip, Scott is really ahead in the race. The senior classes consistently graduate with at least "62-65% of their original number which is well above the national average of 40%."

Published weeklv exceDt for examination and holiday periods Entered as second class mail at the Decatur, Ga., Post Office. A liberal definition... Any attempt to answer the question of Agnes Scott's future brings the inquirer directly back to the question of what Agnes Scott is today. The cliche most often thrown out in response is that ASC is a liberal arts college. The following is a definition of the purpose of a liberal arts college obtained from Merle Walker, associate professor of philosophy, which may help us to re-consider our frustrations here. "The purpose of a liberal arts college is: To develop the mind's capacity for independent thought and for responsible criticism of ideas proposed for belief. To encourage both a respect for facts and an ability to weigh and evaluate the methods by which the facts are gathered. To satisfy natural human curiosity about other times and places and about the physical and cultural universe in which we live. To stimulate the imagination to go beyond the past and present and to entertain creative possibilities for the future. To develop and discipline one's powers of self-expression by which both thoughtand feeling are communicated. To provoke a search for human and spiritual values and the commitment to self-sacrificing and courageous translation of these values into action. To emphasize the belief that one has not begun to understand the universe until one has found something other than oneself at its center. A liberal arts college is the only type which sets all of these goals for itself. Others have some of the same goals we come way short of achieving these purposes - but it is much easier to do less and succeed. It is important to get away from grading papers, covering material, etc., and look at what we are supposed to be doing." QUOTE OF THE WEEK "Man is the only one that knows nothing, that can learn nothing without being taught. He can neither speak nor walk nor eat, and in short he can do nothing at the prompting of nature only, but weep." "You are a good man's son. 1 was young, too, once, and then I had a tongue very inactive and a doing hand. Now as I go forth to the test, I, see that everywhere among the race of men it is the tongue that wins and not the deea.'' Cheating-learning made painless by co-operation -*by RON THOMPSON / _ Fling wide the gates... Beyond the 1842 sign at the entrance to Hollins there's 1969. There are men and women going to classes together and regarding each other as people and not as convenient week-end accessories. There are student protests. There are political leaders playing "my country's stronger than your country" games with the ABMS. The constitutionality of presidential decisions is being questioned. Babies are being bitten by rats as they sleep in their slums. Welfare recipients aren't getting the benefits that are legally theirs. There are people struggling for acceptance. Others are experimenting with new and sometimes frightening ideas. If we are not aware of the contemporary world, we won't fit in when we leave Hollins. Our growth will be retarded. The nineteen hundred is securely established at Hollins. Even the sixty has a pretty firm foothold. But the nine is still outside the gates. Let it in. -reprinted from the Hollins COLUMNS. Canadian University Press (CUP-CPS)-I want to call for an organized conscious campaign of cheating for the spring examinations. You see, I used to think that the examination system should be abolished. And a suitable protest would be that no one would write exams. And 1 did that, but they still tried to give me a degree. So I gave up on that type of protest. Now, I've sold out. All I want to do is to make the examination system better. 1 sat down for two weeks all by myself in a closet with an armload of books and candles. And 1 thought and read and thought and read and I didn't sleep much and after thirteen and a half days I said, "Ahah!" and I came out and here is what I had learned. The examination is supposed to measure how much you have learned about the subject material being questioned via the examination, up until the time you write your answers. You would not be able to figure out any (or at least not very many) of Since the rest of the paper this week is concerned with peering into the future of Agnes Scott 1 decided to give my imagination free hand and visualize a class reunion in say thirty years. The class of '70 would be returning in 2000 a.d., like all returning alumnae to be aghast at the changes that have affected the face of the institution. The campus has by this time expanded to Memorial Drive and has about 5000 students. What we fondly remember as the campus is now the "old quad" and all (he buildings long since replaced by the high rise buildings stretching down Candler Avenue. 'Our" buildings are preserved however and have been lately adopted as the favorite pigeon roost for the campus air corps. A t la n t a has long since Swallowed up Decatur and the campus, and downtown Decatur replaced by a hugh shopping center. The Atlanta business district is a short live minutes away by the old underground transit system. but the city planners promise to have the new the answers just by thinking" about them in your virgin head. So what the society does for you is give you a place (the university) to learn in, and books (the library) full of information, and people (the teachers) who know all sorts of goodies that they were examined on and that they read and were taught. Now as a psychology professor said to his class while they were writing his Xmas exam, "Don't guess, because the exams is rigged and Til find out and it'll cost you." And that's reasonable, because the exam is only supposed to measure what you've learned and guessing would be cheating. But if you're not going to cheat, there are only a few ways to get good marks: Know ahead of time what's going to be on the exams (called cheating unless the professor hands it out in some form of protest) Guess what the professor wants to hear (Cheating - see above). Have the exam only on what the individual student learned from the course and the reading K.P. Detail speed-of-light shuttle service operating within the year. Four new airports have been added and the moonport is already ten years old. The students really had a fight last year getting the Atlanta area officially enlarged to include late parties at Stone Mountain's moon playground. The rules really aren't that much different. The girls still have to be in at night, at least in time to sign in before their 8:30 class. Classes don't convene as such. Each girl has her own view screen in her room or carrel and can plop on the bed and change the channel to another class if the lecture gets boring. Cutting is almost non-existent since portable view screens ean be checked out of the library. Tests are administered under the new IBM system, just instituted last year. The teacher programs the tape and sets it up in the lest lab . Students take the test on one of I he IBM transcribers which automatically records answers, and delivers a graded test back to i he student I he plan has suceeded so well that the school hopes to admit an and his life (but that's not an exam in the accepted sense). Have the exam on what all the students have learned (impossible). So I fall back on cheating as the only way to pass the average exam. But not everyone wants to cheat, or does it well, or has a conscience that will let them do it at all. So what I propose is that when the exams are passed around, the examinees get together and discuss the questions and decide on the answers. If there are two or more solutions to one problem, then you divide up the work load among yourselves. And this hardly even seems to be cheating, the more I think about it. Because what you put down is what you have just learned through discussion, and that's what the examination is supposed to be measuring. And in the end, all the answers would be right if they were the answers of everyone in the class including the teachers, so that marks would be high. And high marks are the point of the thing, are they not? extra thousand students next year to quell student protests over the small size and provinciality of the institution. The relocation of Tech at the abandoned Kennedy Space Center in 1985 hasn't hurt the students' social life a bit. Most girls are able to make it back to school in a little over 15 minutes, if the runwavs not too crowded. Emory, with its 20,000 student university complex is still popular although there has been friction lately between it and Scott over which school gets Decatur for use in its political science program. The charges by alumnae that Agnes Scott has become a suitcase college are just not true. Most girls manage to study on Tuesday and Wednesday when classes are held. Some even cut their weekends short to return before Tuesday and study. But let the alumnae be reassured. The school has not lost its warmth and personal attention. In today's world of the megaversity educational factories, Agnes Seott remains a small school dedicated to teaching young women how to live in our soeietv. MAY 23, 1969 PROFILE PAGE 3 'Where is Scott going* discussed by Forum by NORMA SHAHEEN "The Future of Agnes Scott College" was the topic for last Thursday's Forum meeting, and it seems somehow significant that only 32 people (30 students, 2 faculty members) were interested enough in this vital subject to attend the meeting. Six people associated with the past or present Agnes Scott made up the panel: Evelyn Angellctti ('69), CatTierine Auman ('69), Marguerite Kelly 069), Claire Allen 067), Sally Richardson (two years at Scott, transferred to University of Michigan) and Richard Parry, assistant professor of philosophy. Mr. Parry set the tone for the discussion by categorizing Scott in the past and present as a ''secluded haven of contemplative acquisition of knowledge" - one where creativity is discouraged and information merely given. He labeled the alternative to this passive role as a school on the "growing edge of creativity." Circumstances of history and geography (the fact that ASC is in the deep South -- a backwater region) have limited Agnes Scott in the past, but Parry feels Scott is now in a position to change. "Any school with a $29 million endowment has a future." Claire Allen listed five obstacles to change at Agnes Scott: the student body, the faculty, administration, alumnae, and trustees. Among her proposals were that ASC go coed -- and she even suggested merger with Morehouse as a solution to many of our problems - lack of contact with hiales and with blacks. "Educated toward avoidance" is how Sally Richardson characterized Scott students. "The education for life you get here is sadly lacking." She described how she carried a heavy study load (and maintained her grades) at Michigan but also worked 1 5 hours a week in the cafeteria and "even dated." (Horrors!) The word ''encapsulated" came up frequently in the discussion as a description of the atmosphere of Agnes Scott and its students. A question and discussion period brought varying responses from the audience. A freshman pointed out the proliferation of status-oriented upper middle class people seems to preclude awareness. Marguerite Kelly felt stifled by the regional attitude toward woman's function found "especially among the trustees." We seem to be "educated to be gracious ladies of a home." The Forum meeting was free one in which all types of ideas were expressed and discussed. The fact that so few people care about expressing ideas and listening seems to show how much validity there may be in Parry's evaluation of ASC as a campus isolated from the "growing edge of creativity."

As we examine Scott, what it is, where it's going, this plan offers a definite direction for the momentumof the campus. The plan for expansion was presented by a special committee in November, 1 967 to the Board of Trustees. It was based on an intensive study conducted by Clyde D. Robbins, an Atlanta Community Planning Consultant. The plan outlined campus growth to the south and east, across Candler and down to Kirk Road. The addition of the block between South Candler and Avery Streets is the projected site of future academic facilities and student housing. The block beyond McDonough St. to Adams St. would be faculty housing. In order for the campus to expand across Candler and McDonough, both of which are presently main thoroughfares, traffic would have to be redirected west from Candler over to Adams St. This would conduct traffic directly into Clairmont Ave. and thus improve conditions in Decatur as well as at Scott. Dr. Walter E. NcNair, Director of Public Relations and Development, said that the board adopted the plan "as guideline to acquisition of land and as a framework in which to move." After the trustees of the college had approved the study, it was presented to community leaders and then to the community at large in a mass meeting at Winona Park Elementary School. The meetings were well attended and, according to P.J. Rogers, Jr. Agnes Scott Business Manager, the community has "backed it thus far 100%." Mr. Rogers went on to explain that the plan has also been presented to the Highway Commission, which totally agrees with the concept. He expects that by the end of 1969, the plan should have the Commission's formal committment. Robbins, in making the study, was asked to evaluate "the present and foreseeable future circumstances of Agnes Scott College with respect to its physical cnviroment and to translate these factors into workable programs of land acquisition and recommended community action. "This evaluation was based on his assumption that "at some time in SIMMONS the future the college may want or need to grow to perhaps 2000 students. When Dr. Wallace M. Alston, President of the College, was asked about the possibilities of a student body this size, he maintained that Scott should never become too large to continue its "personal quality to life." Although he stressed the importance of an open attitude toward all possibilities and reemphasized the longevity of these plans, he did feel that Scott would remain what it is now. In other words, in the complex ol Atlanta we can afford to remain a small liberal arts college foi women. While the Robbins study did basically provide impetus for forward thought, it has already directed action. The college has proceeded to purchase land within the projected expansion area, as it has become available and as we have had the money. Perhaps the most important step in the progression of the plan lies in the acquisition of a Vice President for Development. Dr. Paul McCain I Repartee SUSIE BORCUK Like the student, Dr. Alston would like to see instant communication lines set up between administration, faculty, and student body. While speaking to Rep Council on Tuesday, he expressed a sincere desire to adequately notify the campus of new innovations before the news media somehow secures the information and broadcasts it all over Atlanta. However, it must be clear to everyone that this is not as easy as it sounds. Indeed, newspapermen are notorious for their skillful persistence, and, as Dr. Alston points out, precautions must be taken that incorrect information doesn't leak out to the press. Dr. Alston suggested that, perhaps, a public relations coordinator (student) could be selected to work directly with student government in keeping the campus community informed. Along with this idea, he also sees weekly convocation as an important means of communicating to the students and faculty. In his opinion, convocation has helped to unify the campus to a rather marked degree in the past; however, in very recent years, interest has dropped significantly. Attendance records (which have been kept each Wednesday this year) show that about 60% of the student body is "reasonably responsible" in coming, 25% "come some", and the rest "don't come unless they feel it absolutely necessary." Dr. Alston asks that the student body, as well as Rep Council, stand behind convocation. He invites more student, participation and, especially, better support. Any suggestions? Water bucket award given to heroic profs The PROFILE wishes to offer a commendation to two members of the faculty for service above and beyond the call of duty. It may not be known to all that Margaret W. Pepperdene, professor of English, and Jack L. Nelson, associate professor of English, successfully extinguished a fire in the Hub on Wednesday, May 14. The PROFILE has succeeded in putting together this report of the event from several eye witness accounts. It was a mild, uneventful day in Decatur until the calm was broken by the sight of black smoke billowing from Agnes Scott campus. "Fire in the Hub," shrieked one of two professors casually sauntering by the scene and both sprang instantly into action. As one unnerved student put it, "I was coming across the mud flats from Buttrick when I looked up and saw Mr. Nelson and Mrs. Pepperdene running around the corner of the Hub. I thought they were playing tag. I couldn't believe it. Then I saw the> smoke..." A student or unknown students, as was ascertained at a later time, had attempted to roast hotdogs on the Hub stove without being in attendance. The hotdogs thus proceeded alone beyond the point of return and had begun to smoke in the last stage of their demise. This same smoke was observed by the eagle-eyed profs who ran to the rescue. The excited activity stirred the curiosity of several students who gathered outside the Hub in, a vain effort to discover what was happening. Several other students jumped up and down in their excitement and screamed, "Come on baby, douse that fire." They were squelched by the raised eyebrows of passersby. After the crisis had passed, the feelings of all present were expressed by Nelson as he walked away muttering, "all that for a bunch of hotdogs." PAGE 4 PROFII E MAY 23, l%9 PEGBOARD Agnes Scott College has received a grant of $400,000 from the William Rand Kenan. Jr., Charitable Trust of New York. The announcement was made to the college on Wednesday, May 21 by Agnes Scott President Wallace M. Alston, who stated that the grant will be used to endow a chair of chemistry, to be known as the William Rand Kenan, Jr. Professorship of Chemistry. From New York the trustees explained, "The objective of the Kenan Trustees in making this grant is to establish a professorship of such eminence and distinction as to bring honor and respect to the name of William R. Kenan, Jr. Of equal importance is our wish to support a scholar-teacher of distinction whose enthusiasm for learning, commitment to teaching and interest in students will make a notable contribution to the Agnes Scott College community. " Mr. Kenan, for whom the professorship is named, was born April 30, 1872, in Wilmington, N.C., and died July 28, 1965. A chemist, engineer and industrialist, the philanthropist provided for the William R. Kenan, Jr., Charitable Trust to support and perpetuate his wishes as stated in his last will: "I have always believed firmly that a good education is the most cherished gift an individual can receive and it is my sincere hope that the provisions of this Article will result in a substantial benefit to mankind." The Kenan family has been instrumental in furthering the cause of educatior in North Carolina and the South since the time of the American Revolution. * ** Lawrence L.

Cheryl Granade '70 -- "I think it would for two reasons. First, the students here are serious enough about academics to be sincere. Secondly, the administration and faculty are open to constructive suggestions. " Virginia Uhl '72 - "I think it sounds like a good idea. I believe that the freshmen, and all students, should have some idea of the kind of course and what kind of teacher they're getting. A composite view from the entire student body would be better than well-meaning advice from one or two students." Miss Gary: 'The evaluation of a course usually involves an evaluation of the professor. I do not think that such subjective evaluation should be made public." Faye Hamlin '72 - "The students would feel that they were really doing something about their gripes - instead of talking behind the teacher's back." Kathy Tripplet, '7 1 : "I think it would help the professor perfect his method. It might be good for the school to know about what the kids think of some of the courses. It might also help better communications between students and professors." Speaks Linda Reed '71 - "Yes, it might provide an opportunity for more varied courses. Since the student body at Scott is so small and a great number of courses are not feasible, the evaluation might help in planning classes the students would really like to take."
