Dangerous Demonstrations

Mob action at the coed dormitories
Thursday again points up how dangerous,
disgraceful and degrading such prac practice
tice practice is. . t
It has been many months since students
staged ja demonstration which bordered
so closely to a riot as did the attack on
Broward Hall. With an effective leader,
someone to be first to seek entrance to
the dorm, Thursdays fiasco would have
resulted in as much damage and injury
as the famous UF panty raid in 1952,
The origin of Thursday's mob also
shows how easily student enthusiasm can
get out of hand and how uncontrollable
it is. Starting from a simple pep rally,
students, with a sudden show of spirit,
banded together for a parade through
campus and downtown. Naturally it
wound up at the coed dorms.
Not blameless in the near panty raid
were coeds themselves who teased the
emotional male students with yelling and
tossing panties from windows. If the
had run its course, many male students

of the coeds, themselves as much to blame
as anyone, would have been called the
unfortunate victims.
For those who have never witnessed
mob rule either by a group of fun-seek fun-seeking
ing fun-seeking college students or a lynching mob,
it is not a pleasant sight. A meek and
otherwise cowardly man gets mighty
brave when lost in a frenzied crowd.
Mobs of this type cannot be stopped
or dispersed with reason. Only force will
drive them away and the force had
better be successful or the defenders will
be swept under a tide of yelling, bottle bottlethrowing

The big gun in Miami's potent
