1300 FIRST FOUR WEEKS
Campus traffic violations are decreasing, although there- were
1,300 traffic and parking reports in the first fotir weeks of the
semester, according to Chief A. I. Shuler of the Campus police.
We get fewer reports each week, said Shuier. Things are
generally very quiet this year as compared with last year. No
traffic injuries or serious accidents have occured on campus this fall.
About a dozen freshmen and
sophomores have been reported
for operating automobiles on the
campus without authority, Shuler

A cooperative effort is planned
to register all bicycles within the

will be registered with either the

as soon as tags arrive from the
manufacturer. All bicycles will
be required to have a headlight

We do not expect any trouble

Shuier. No extra precautions

Danger Sign to Academics

The Florida Alligator has heard much comment on this subject, especially

1) Many prominent members of the

that academic freedom is not guarded as
securely as it should be here on a Uni University

We define academic freedom as the
right for a professor or student to think
or speak on any subject, without fear
of reprisal or recrimination, no matter
what the subject, and whether or not it
be odious to a large segment of the pub public.
Such academic freedom is the core of

SCIENCE MADE SIMPLE: No. 1
Though this column is intended to be a source of inno innocent

weighty matters, I have asked my sponsors, the makers **
of Marlboro, whether I might not, from time to time,
use this space for a short lesson in science. Makers, I
said to them, might I not, from time to time, use this
space for a short lesson in science?
They agreed with many a kindly smile, the makers of
Marlboro, few they are the most agreeable of men. Their
benevolence is due in no small measure to the cigarettes
they smoke, for Marlboro is a cigarette to soothe the most
savage of breasts. I refer not only to the flavor which, as
everyone knows, is a delight to the palate, but also to
the Marlboro container. Here is no fiendishly contrived
device to fray the fingernails and rasp the nerves; here,
instead, is a flip-top box that opens like a charm, and
inside you find a handy red tape to lift out the cigarettes
with ease and dispatch. Add to all this the best filter ever
made, and you can see that you get a lot to like.
Let us begin our series of science lessons with chemis chemistry.

They had several meetings outside the Acropolis, but
finally Franklin said, Look, Pythagoras, this is nothing
against you, see, but Im no youngster anymore and if
I keep laying around on this wet grass with you, I'm

Pythagoras, friendless now, moped around Athens for
awhile, then drifted off to Monaco where he married a

Last month we got the follow following

a shirt belonging to Laundry

a small piece of paper pro protruding

out and read: "Whoever you

Comment has reached my ears
on the waiting in line that stu students

game. I have observed no such
problem during the last two home
games, and I think the athletic
department and its business man manager,
ager, manager, Percy Beard, should be
commended on the fine job they
have done in making things run
as smoothly as they have in the
last few weeks.
Anyway, where doesnt a stu student

University populated by almost
11,000 people. We stand in line to
eat, to register, and even to get
a drink of water. This is just
one of the hazards involved in at attending
tending attending a large university.
In speaking to Athletic Director
Bob Woodruff on the subject last
week, I noted that actually, this
plan is a concession to the stu students.
We could actually just give
each student a ticket for the en entire
tire entire season when he registers and
then forget about it, Woodruff
stated. But, we feel the present
plan gives the student a chance
to move around, and, if he gets
an end-zone seat one week, gives
him the opportunity to get a bet better
