Dear Or. Aaericano:
Two years ago I was privileged to broadcast a
greeting to the students of the University of Sao
Paulo. This year our student body has suggested
that one edition of our student nwrspaper, The
Florida Alligator, be dedicated to the University of
Sao Paulo. The student newspaper is only one of the
any activities of our student body which ie largely
self-governing. Few universities in our nation
place such an esphaala an student leadership as our
own.
It is. therefore, a great pleasure to join our
fine students in sending to you and to your student
body this message of greeting and felicitations. Vs
hope that our inter-American program which has had
saoh an auspicious beginning and has developed so
effectively during the pest will continue to draw
students of the University of Florida and the
University of Sao Paulo, as well as other great
universities of Latin Amerloa. closer together.
With warm regards and highest esteem, I am

of 8,000 stdents in 23 years-

A Brazilian university is requir required

one of Jaw, medicine and either;

Offered at Sao Paulo are law, j
a polytechnic school, agriculture,

The University drew several
smaller schools into one in Janu-|

like the Law School, was founded
as early as 1827. Others range
down through the years with the
School o f Engineering, tne most;

GATOR PICTURE STORY
BY KARL WICKSTROM
In every phase of life at the University of Florida,
students from different parts of the world join hands
to take part in activities with their new American
friends. It is unusual to see foreigners in groups by
themselves. Daily associations of students with dif different
ferent different nationality backgrounds are a commonplace
on the Florida campus. On this page of pictures,
Photographer Karl Wickstrom has attempted to
capture some of the many ways in which living to together
gether together makes better world citizens of all. Nearly
three hundred foreign students go to college at Gain Gainesville

themselves to life in the United States and are wel welcomed

A proposed Student Government civil service act

year.

The council acting as a
Committee of the Whole when the
matter was brought up and the
minutes of the meeting must be
. approved at- the next session to
make the action valid.
The bill, covering only qualifi qualifications
cations qualifications necessary for cabinet
members, was not on the agen agenda

cil council members by surprise.
An immediate split developed
in the council when the bill was
read by Luke McKissack after he
requested permission from the
floor. The Gator faction violent violently
ly violently opposed the act. while the Uni*
1 versity party members lined up
steor."ly behind the bill:
When McKissack took the floor,
he began by praising the present
administration and the work it has
done,
Now that the elections are ov over,
er, over, McKissack said, I think we
should join hands across the tab- j
le and work together for a bet better
ter better Student Government.
*** ,
Tlic council member then added
that m an attempt to aid the Ga- I
tor Partys proposed civil service
setup, a bill had been drawn en-|
compassing the merit system. 1
The bill specifies that before a
! person can be appointed to a cab- |
i inet position he must pass a writ- I
, ten examination covering the stu- |
j dent body constitution, activities, j
and functions of Student Govern- [
ment and its subsidiaries and I
' complete knowledge of his parti-j
cular cabinet position.
In addition to the examination,
he b : P st""\s specific require- i
ments for each cabinet post. Most
of the requirements are one se-]
mester as under-secretary In the j
particular cabinet division of oth-
er academic or extra-curricular j'
experience In the specific .field.
Under provisions of the bill, a
person is automatically qualified <
to take the examination if he has
served one year on the Executive <
Council, served as a secretary or
commissioner, or served as pres- <
ident.. vice president op secretary- (
treasurer of the Student Body, or
as chancellor or tderk of the Hon- I
or Court.

You know and I know this Is a
; farce. Bondi said, addressing the
floor. Its just a political trick.
George Wolff, council, member
from engineering, said the bill
would put this year's people into
: power.
We should not limit cabinet
posts to this year's leftovers.
Wolff stated.
He then moved that the issue be
tabled until the next meeting, but
was voted down by the University
Party majority.
Discussion on the b/11 continued
with strong words and allignment
on both sides. When the time was
up. a vote was taken and the bill
was passed, 14-7.
