To whom it most concerns: Have you ever thought that
someone might find it digusting to be smothered by the odor of carbox while waiting in
line to eat at Burton? I won't mention the fact that its stupid to go to the trouble of
having a catbox anyways; they can be trained to go outside just like dogs. Not having
mentioned that, I would like to mention the fact that I sure wish you would move that
catbox someplace where it won't bother a lot of people. How about underneath your pillow?

I am getting really tired of all this shit about big
sisters, secret sisters, etc. For "frosh" like myself, the atmosphere at
Carleton is prevaded by this notion that "frosh" are so young, so disoriented,
and so ignorant that theyneed this kind of condescending helpful attitude, besides the
official structure of RA's, SA's, faculty advisors, etc. After one year, poof! you're an
upperclassman and accepted with social ease. When are you going to realize that thoughts
and aims are somewhat similar and that "freshman" is a meaningless label?

As a co-organizer of the Big Sister adn the secret si
programs, I can't help but reply to Chuck Palmer's attack. I'm sure that if he were to
speak with soph men who had secret sisses last year, he would find more appreciative,
positive response than anything else. Several guys have voiced thei r disappointment at
not having had secret sisses in past years.
I am a sophomore who was very glad to have a
secret sis as a freshman, as were many of my friends. Those who didn't have sisses, felt
left out. Many of us were disappointed about the cancellation of the Big Sister program
when Women's League died out; hence the independent reinstitution of the program. These
programs are not intended as a device to label a group as "young, disoriented, and
They simply provide a hramless opportunity for friendships across class
lines and between dorms which would likely not have occured otherwise because of lack of
contact through classes, etc. These encounters almost invariably bring about mutual
benefit to both parties involved. It is unfortunate that that one person appoint himself
spokesman for a class of which he is clearly not representative.
No one is forcing Chuck
to have a secret sis. It could easily be arranged that he not have one, without depriving
those of us who thrive on a little human kindness of the benefits of the program.

The social policy committee,
in an attempt to determine the appropriateness of public consumption of alcohol on college
property, would actively solicit expressions of community attitude concerning the
consumption of alcohol in college dining halls. The committee is presently in the process
of revising college policy in this area, and feels that it cannot accurately consider the
possibility of sanctioning the consumption of alcohol in public dining areas without
giving ample opportunity for objections to such a policy revision to be expressed.
community members are invited to register with Mrs. Witman in the dean of students office
no later that 5 p.m. Thursday any written response either in favor of or in objection to a
revision of college policy which would permit the consumption of alcoholic beverages in
college dining halls. Questions? Suggestions? please feel free to contact me at

Tonight following the Homecoming
Coronation, Bonfire, and Snake Dance, there will be an All School Party on Mai Fete
Island. The refreshments will be beer and apple cider. This is the first time a party of
this type has been planned and officially sanctioned on campus. The relative success of
this event has great ramifications for future parties on campus and for the revision of
campus policies in regard to public drinking policy. We must take every conceivable
precaution to guarantee a safe, controlled, successful event.
There are three specific areas of concern. First, although
we don't anticipate any problems, things can get out of hand when large crowds get
together. We want to confine the party to Mai Fete Island and the area immediately
surrounding the bonfire. We ask your cooperation in being alert to this situation and
helping with its control.
Second, state law requires that anyone consuming
beer be at least 18 years old. We can't change the law and must comply with it. Hence, we
will require everyone to have an ID to prove their age.
Finally, the party is a Carleton function funded
by the students of Carleton. We need everyone's help in insuring that only Carleton
students, faculty, and staff attend. We request your aid in asking outsiders to leave. We
are looking forward to a great Homecoming weekend and hope that your are, too.

Once again I am amazed at the
caliber of some fellow Carleton students. I am astounded. The intelligent young men of
whom I write are those that eject water filled projectiles from the roof of Davis
dormitory onto the peons who dare to scamper about below. I really think it's hilarious.
It's so much fun to hit someone on any part of his body and see the balloon break,
drenching him in water. Whee! I only ask that the honorable practice continue, so that I
will never need to question the sheer masculinity of those handsome, virile Carleton men!

Did you ever
wonder why so many notes appear in the NNB asking for students wot
work in food service?
This note is on behalf of
those students who work carts in the dishroom (known as the scully).
There was a previous note concerning various "messages"
written on the trays in pudding and jello; most were comments on the
quality of the food. It was pointed out that we have nothing to do
with the food, and that all complaints should be directed to the
various heads of SAGA. It seems to have worked, because no other
"messages" have appeared. Because of this encouragement, I
am writing this note, in hope that it will help as well.
Most of the present problems
have probably resulted in because people are unaware of the hassles of
working carts. However, many of the trays we clean are clearly
malicious attempts --to what?!? This I can't answer. We don't really
want to believe students here are pigs, but when we get
conglomerations of oatmeal, toast, jelly, egg yolk, cereal, and milk,
or Shepard's pie, pudding, jello, potato chips, hot dog (with the
usual mustard, catsup, and relish) and cigarette butts and ashes all
smosshed together and artfully plastered to the tray, plates, glasses
and cups or cleverly used to glue the dishes to the tray, we begin to
wonder not only how some people acquired such barnyard habits, but
whether or not they have truly lost their sanity!! (Today we named the
most original tray violent violet - violent because it looked like
some one had suffered a very violent upheaval after having drunk grape
juice on top of blueberry pancakes.)
Needless to say, if one has
already eaten, it is very hard to keep it down. If not, it is
virtually impossible to even look at the food, let alone eat it.
We aren't asking for
miracles, just a little consideration.

LES "THE MESS" STROUSE
bunch of drunkards obsessed with one idea: sex"
The Carleton Man
Carleton men, since the
beginning of fall term, have in general thoroughly proved themselves
to be a group of bastards. I came to this institution hoping to find
guys with whom I could carry on an intelligent conversation; instead,
I found the other extreme: a bunch of habitual drunkards obsessed with
one idea: sex.
A typical date consists of short conversation (probably
merely to assure the girl that her date is sincerely interested in her
as a total person), a few drinks, and then the questions: do you want
to screw? If the answer is no, either the girl is escorted back to her
dorm or else the guy spends the rest of the evening trying to change
her mind. And that's it - there seems to exist no other kind of
communication between men and women and Carleton.
I am writing this in the NNB
because I am disgusted and because I hope to elicit some response to
show that I am wrong.

What is it with
the frosh this year? It seems they came here with the intention of
resisting every attempt which might "mark" them as freshmen.
First, the ever-popular sight of green beanies - adding color to the
campus, joy to the hearts of upperclassmen, and spirit and unity to
the frosh class -- did not materialize.
So how could there have been a

latest -- Homecoming "Ceremonies." Is it that the Class of
'75 felt it beneath them to perform in traditional manner during
halftime? Instead, the few that showed up on the field proceeded to
attack the Pep Band, nearly succeeding in ruining the Band's
performance -- one of the last few campus activities which is not
intellectual, serious, or rational.
So many people - not only
freshmen - seem to think they've outgrown "juvenile
traditions." I'm sure all of them are so concerned about matters
of world importance all the time that they can't be bothered about
useless frivolities. Or is it false sophistication? It's too bad that
people are so uptight about liberation, booking, or just cooling it
that they have lost their sense of humor. Carleton will be a really
great place when we finally get rid of the few remaining traditions
and diversions. I sure as hell don't want to be here.
