Outside the Classroom

One aspect of college life which has
not received enough attention in recent
years is education beyond the classroom,
in the form of lectures, debates and pub public
lic public speeches by professors and men who
have something to contribute to our
knowledge of things in general.
In this day and age of mass appeal
and educational TV, we are apt to for forget
get forget that the simple debate on a thought thoughtprovoking
provoking thoughtprovoking topic is £till apropoeven
more so as the emphasis on the fully-ed fully-educated

American universities and colleges.
The number of debates, lectures
speeches of a general nature on the
Florida campus has been definitely on
the wane. Students, w feel, would not
only benefit from increased emphasis on
this, but it would do much to fill the
void which has been growing as the re result
sult result of a more impersonal relationship
on an ever-growing campus.

Gators' Offense
To Remain Strong:
Defense Doubtful

- / v-x- .>9

By KEN SHER
*-, Alligator Sports Editor
If things had proceeded as planned, Floridas Ga Gators
tors Gators today would have returned home from Los Angeles
with one game under their belts, and we would have
had some estimate of the strength of the Orange and
Blue eleven.
As it now stands, however, the Gators have four
davs of oractice remaining before the seasons opener,
now against Wake Forest instead of UCLA. The best
that can be said about the Florida eleven today is that
it is an unknown quantity.

Until they play their first game,
all one can do is guess about the
teams potentialities. Joe Halber Halberstein,
stein, Halberstein, Gainesville Sim Sports Edi Editor,
tor, Editor, yesterday predicted that the
Gators will have plenty of offen offensive

little bit on the doubtful side.
One cannot help but agree with
Halberstein. With a starting back backfield

at quarterback, Ed Sears at full fullback,
back, fullback, and Jim Rountree and Ber Bernie

Orange and Blue presents a touch touchdown

Rountree, the senior back who
led the Florida team in scoring
last year, is a fine open field
runner with the speed to go all
the way. His mate at the other
halfback slot, Parrish, is an ex exceptionally

fine pass reciever.

Rountree and Sears Shine In Intrasquad Scrimmage;
Gridders Prepare For Opener Against Wake Forest

Jim Rountree and Ed Sears established themselves as the men to watch on
the 1957 Florida football team as they accounted for three touchdowns and
set up another in last Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage.

Gator coach Bob Woodruff sent
each of his first three teams, the
Blue, Orange, and Red, through
two quarters of simulated game
action against a combination of
freshmen and reserves. The front
line players scored eight touch touchdowns,
downs, touchdowns, converting successfully af after

Rountree showed break away
speed in scoring on jaunts of 52
and 19 yards. The senior half halfback

cracks at the line, picking up
about five yards per carry.
Os course, this is none too pleas pleasin

up and down the field, always
waiting until the last minute be before

short of a score.
