No More Dead Publication
Florida has had its share of dead publications.
First it was the Seminole. Several ye ars ago that situation was and the
annual returned to regular publication. Then it was the Peel, which has been in
trouble for several eons.
The Peel situation is back to normal,
unbanned and slated for distribution
again this fall.
Now its Peninsula. This magazine, a
publication of the University for several
years, has been lingering on its death deathbed
bed deathbed since its inception in 1953. We won wonder
der wonder if it will ever gain a healthful fu future.
The Peninsula started out as a liter literary
ary literary magazine, designed to give students
with creative ability an outlet for their
talents. It has done nothing but flound flounder
er flounder and flop with no signs for a stable
If this publication were not worth the
effort, the Alligator would not take
space to discuss the magazine. But since
Peninsula does provide an outlet for a
type of writing which is sorely needed
on this campus, we feel that once and
for all, Peninsula should either be
placed on a sound financial basis or
bounced out of publication for good.
The main reason this fledging publi publication
cation publication has had hard times is that it re receives
ceives receives no funds from the student fee,
as does the Alligator, Seminole, Orange
Peel and F Book. It is officially recog recognized
nized recognized by the University, but has its own
publications board, and does not come
under the jurisdiction of the regular
Board of Student Publications.
If Peninsula were to receive student
fees, and it would not take a great
amount, it could free itself from financ financial
ial financial woes and get on to the main task
of providing a literary outlet for mem members
bers members of the student body.
As it is now, the only sources of in income
come income for the magazine are ads and
copies sold at 25c apiece. In its half a
dozen issues the past 5 years, only one
publication sold more than a few hun hundred
dred hundred copies.
This was the edition edited by Bob
Park last December, which sold the as astronomical
tronomical astronomical figure of 2,000 copies. Why?
Pecause the Peninsula turned from its
literary bent to a humorous-type edition
which looked more like an Orange Peel
than a Peninsula.
A decision for or against Peninsula
must be reached soon. And we feel we
have the answer. We would recommend
to Student Government and the Board of
Student Publications the following sug suggestions
gestions suggestions :
1) Give the Peninsula an appropria appropriation

might be enough. The exact figure
could be decided upon after looking

is one of the few institutions on the

Vandalism is a practice of which
the University of Florida has had its
share. Pranksters in years past have
committed every conceivable deed, from
raids at the girls dorms to paint jobs of
Leo, the stone mascot of the SAE fra fraternity.
Thus what happened Monday night
at the Florida Pool seemed to many ob observers
servers observers as no better or no" worse than
these other acts of pranksterism. 2
bags of dye were dumped in the pool
by unknown persons, presumed to be
students of either this University or
from outside the campus.
It was an indication, however, that
these pranksters did not realize the ser seriousness
iousness seriousness of this deed, or that they didnt
particularly care. For not only was the
present paint job on the walls of the
pool nearly ruined, but Dean D. K. Stan Stanley

and Health reports that practice for
Homecoming Swimcapades, water-bas water-basketball,

activities had to be cancelled while the
pool was drained and cleaned.
Not only were students deprived the
use of the pool for two days, but un unnecessary

organizations who had been slated to
use the facilities of the Pool.
Such vandalism can be funny only to
the warped minds of the persons who
find humor in such pranks. Surely such
incidents should not go unnoticed by
student leaders and University officials.
We would suggest that if these prank pranksters

they find some worthwhile activity to
divert their attention.
Such incidents not only cost the Uni University

By KEN SUER
Alligator Sports Editor
Replacing an All-American is a tough job. If you dont believe
it, just ask Wake Forest Head Coach Paul Amen.
Amen, voted the Atlantic Coast Conferences Coach of the Year
in his rookie season last year, is trying to find a replacement for
fullback Bill Barnes, who made several All-America elevens in 1956-
Fans throughout the nation remember Barnes brilliant perform performance

Professional Football League in the All-Star Game at Chicago last
month. The big fullback was the hero for the defeated collegians In
Two sophomores have been fighting it out for the starting full fullback
back fullback slot, left vacant by Barnes graduation. They are Neal Mc-
Lean, 195-pound ex-serviceman, and Pete Manning, 200 pounds of
speed and power.
Replacing Barnes is not the only problem confronting Amen.
Charlie Carpenter, last years number one quarterback in Amens
Army T-formatkm offense, ruptured a spinal disc and will be out of
uniform for the entire season.
To replace Carpenter, the Deacons' mentor has shifted Jim
Dalyrimpie, a starter at left half in 1956, to the signal calling slot.
Backing up Dalyrimpie will be two sophomores, Charles (Preacher)
Parker and Bruce Nunnaly.
In all, other than in the two positions already mentioned, the
veakest spot in the Deacons' armor will be on the bench. The start starting

WAHLBERG AT CENTER
The red-hot battle for the center slot on Coach Bob Woodruffs

Throughout Spring practice and well into the final weeks of
preparation for the seasons opener, the three alternated on the Or Orange,
ange, Orange, Blue, and Red units. Wahlberg drew the starting assignment
in last Saturdays scrimmage, and his outstanding performance won
him the starting nod. r
Wahlberg played in the shadows of Steve DeLa DeLatofre

FOOTBALL THROUGH THE AGES
* The football frenzy is upon us. But let us in the midst
of this pandemonium call time. Let Sus pause for a moment
of tranquil reflection. What is this great American game
called football? What is its history? Its origins?
\ 1 yjfy .!
i pustfra moment of tanouil teflecfioa
First of all, to call football an is some somewhat
what somewhat misleading. True, the game is now/played almost
exclusively in America, but it comes to us from a land
far away and a civilization long dead.
Football was first played in ancient Rome. Introduced
by Julius Caesar, it became one of the most popular
Roman sports by the time of Neros reign. The eminent
historian, Sigafoos, reports a crowd of MMCLDDXVIII
people at the Colosseum one Saturday afternoon to see
the Christians play the Lions.
With the decline of the Roman empire, football fell
into disuse. The barbaric Huns and Visigoths preferred
canasta. Not until the fifteenth century A. D. did foot football
ball football emerge from its twilight and rise to its rightful place
in the firmament of European sports.
Which brings us to September 29, 1442, a date dear to
the hearts of all football fans. It was on this date, accord according
ing according to the eminent historian Sigafoos, that a sixteen-year sixteen-yearold
old sixteen-yearold lad named Christopher Columbus tried out for the
football team at Genoa Tech. He failed to make the team
because he was too light. (He weighed at the time only
. twelve pounds.)
And why, you ask, is this dateSeptember 29,1442
so dear to the hearts of all football fans? Because young
Columbus was so heartbroken at not making the team
that he ran away to sea. And if that hadnt happened,
he never would have discovered America. And if Columbus
hadnt discovered America, the world would never have
discovered tobacco. And if the world hadnt discovered
tobacco, football fans never would have discovered

The end of football in Europe came with the notorious
Black Sox Scandal of 1587, in which Ed Machiavelli,
one of the Pisa mob, paid off the University of Heidelberg
Sabres to throw the championship game to the Chartres
A. and M. Gophers. It was a mortal blow to football on
But the game took hold in the American colonies and
thrived as it had never thrived before. "Which brings us
to another date that remains evergreen in the hearts of
football lovers: December 16, 1773.
On that date a British packet loaded with tea sailed
into Boston harbor. The colonies had long been smarting
under the English kings tax on tea. Taxation without
representation, they called it, and feelings ran high.
When on December 16, 1773, the British ship docked
at Boston, a semi-pro football team called the Nonpareil
Tigers, coached by Samuel (Swifty) Adams, was scrim scrimmaging

manner. Here now! called Swifty sharply. Thats no
