Student Newspaper: Tuesday, September 24, 1968

The New Voice, September 24, 1968

The New Voice, September 24, 1968

Highlights of this edition include:

  • A protest of the practice of freshman hazing, particularly the prohibition against sitting on the grass
  • A positive review of “Cheap Thrills,” the latest album from Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin on lead vocals
  • Plans for the creation of a coffee house theater in the Loft, a space in the Carriage House building on campus
  • Editorials again calling for openness in the College’s budgeting process and for more student involvement in all levels of decision making. In an editorial entitled “Directions,” the paper writes:

    “The door must be fully opened to allow total student participation in their own education. We can see no reason why faculty would object to students attending every meeting. Our hope and our confidence in the faculty of Dowling College is that they will not be the ones to set a tradition of a pentagon of fear and distrust, that they will recognize the need to abolish every pocket of secrecy that remains. Now.”
