Gators' Offense

By Hugo Spitz
The UTniyersity of ,,Florida put
up a gallant battle against the
powerful University of. North
Carolina last Saturday and went
down- to defeat, 40-19.
In -a wide. open football game,
18,000 homecoming fans jammed
Kenan Stadium at Chapel Hill to
witness -the brilliant running of
Charley Justice and the accurate
passing of Florida's Doug Belden.
Williams Standout:
Right -End, Broughton Williams
was a big-cog-in the Gators' aerial
attack. In the second period he
grabbed a short pass from Belden
in the end zone for Florida's first
score. Late in the third period
he took a pass from Hal Griffin,
eluded, two Tarheels and ran 37
for the score.. .Williams caught
five of the fifteen passes complet-
ed to regain the position of lead-
ing pass receiver in. the country.
Belden To Turner
Florida's other score came early
in the third period when Belden
rifled a short pass to End Bill
Turner in the end zone.
The Tarheel attack was led by
Charley "Choo-Choo" Justice, who
ran through the Florida team for
two touchdowns, one on a 70 yard
punt- return, the other on a 90 yard
kickoff return.
Although the score read 40-19,
the Gators outgained the Tarheels
by 95 yards. They completed 15
out of 39 passes and ran up 12
first downs to North Carolina's 11.

The program Sunday will begin
with "Exaltabe Te Domine," by
Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina.
It will include such selections as
the delightful "Of Time and the
River," by Marton Gould (commis-
sioned by and composed for the

sented for the first time this sea-
son),, and "Cindy," with arrange-

Monday's p ogram will com-

Music critics have been lavish
in their praise of the bass section
of the WestminsternChoir. It might
be compared with the famous bass
of the Russian choirs in that it
acts as the foundation of the
choir's structure. The sopranos

Third Party In Offing ?
S, -.! -
1n another column of this issue there is
a "Letter to the Editor" protesting the in-
j -itices perpetrated against non-fratern-
Smen on this campus, insofar as politics
: social life is concerned.
The writer of the letter calls for the
i' nationon of a third party to be known as
zt.e Independents, and which would be
l.'iited solely to non-fraternity men. We
n; ree wholeheartedly with the author of
.t e. letter that the independents on this
V mpus are getting what might conserva-
tiv ely be called a "raw deal" so far as
rm'resentation goes.
Roth political parties, with an equal
: loiunt of fraternity backing between
tf.em, nominated approximately 50' fra-
rrnity candidates and 50% non-fratern-
i" candidates in the last election, in spite
u- the fact that the 2,000 fraternity men
o- this campus comprise only 30% c of the
-.'-al enrollment of the University.
We agree that the independent has
-.en treated shabbily by the existing pol-
i,:cal parities; we agree that the time is
r'i)e for those two parties to correct these
i justices or for a third party to be estab-
l.,h.ed to correct these inequities; we dis-
za'ree, however, that such a party should,
b, formed from non-fraternity men alone.
Such a move would tend to create a
cl.,avage, a wide breach, between those
i.. fraternities and those not in fraterni-
ti- s. it would'telnd to set up a social dis-
t.iction, which in fact, does not exist. A
ti ird party could represent predominant-
tl the-interests of the independent-but
)n. order to be a true cross-section of
e.'mnpus representation, this party should
have a proportion of its representation al.
Ivted to fraternity men.
In ione paragraph of his letter, the writ-
ec made reference to the fact that the In-
tz'er-Fraternity Conference had allowed
Friday r;,'ht's Frolics dance to the no'n-
>'atOrnity men while keeping the "choice"
SSaturday night date for the fraternity
r1en. The writer also called upon non-
f aternity men to boycott Fall Frolics.
While the letter was obviously written
i:- good faith, the real facts relating to
t'he. Inter-Fraternity Conference's stand on
Frolics do not warrant any criticism of the
actions taken by that group. In the first
apace, Fall Frolics is, and always has
been a function sponsored by the 1FC. in
v.addition to that fact there are these to

1. The IFC must carry the full financial

2. Over $3,000 has already been raised

"The SL of MI" -tells a sensationally unusual
tale. an insight into the diabolic mind of a com-

actions shadowed by the guilty knowledge of mur-

5. The only reason the two dances have
been divided into fraternity and non-
fraternity dances instead of splitting the
dances, is because of the limitation on
space available for the dance.

that the student government should spon-
sor its own dances, is a worth-while and
progressive one, we are certain that the
IFC, if anything, should be commended
for its handling of the coming Frolics.
