What this campus needs is

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Judging from the unnecessary
inconvenience that students must
bear to get a ticket to one of
.our football games, it seems to
me that someone is trying to
discourage student attendance
at these games. There are only
11,000 students attending the
University and the stadium
seats approximately 41.000.
Even if there was 100 per cent
student attendance, and each
student brought a date, that
would still leave about 20,000
seats to be sold.
I would suggest that the lead leaders

The hard charging Florida forward wall, which held
the Deacons in complete submission until late in the
