Open Court Trials
To Press, Public
The Honor Court, judicial branch of Student Government, meets
in secret session, yet it can decide the coLege career and the per personal
sonal personal future of any student who stands before its bar of justice.
This great power that rests in the hands of 18 persons is im important
portant important to consider. F6r within this secrecy, students elected by
student body vote, but'without prior judicial experience, can de decide
cide decide the guilt or innocence of any one of us.
The Court may act wisely in the overwhelming majority of
cases which come before it, we believe. In nearly every case,
the Court can make a decision which is the fairest one possible.
It is that small number of additional cases with which the Alli Alligator
gator Alligator is most concerned.
In Tuesdays paper, we reported the facts on a member of the
Florida football team who pleaded guilty before the Court, had
displayed an essay paper identical to that of someone who sat
with him at the time of the test, yet was found "innocent by the

Chancellor Bob Graham has substantiated to the Alligator the
fact that both students were found innocent after pleading guilty.
Protection of Student
It is not whether a football piayer was before the Court, or
how minor a charge may have been leveled against the water watermelon
melon watermelon stealer. What counts is that here was an obvious mis-car mis-carriage
riage mis-carriage of justice, and how can this be prevented in the future?
The Florida Alligator, and every past Editor of the Alligator
that we know of, has been in favor of open Honor Court trials.
Why? Certainly not to "crucify in the press any innocent per persons,
sons, persons, or even guilty ones; not to mar the reputation of persons
or to injure the reputation of the University.
We have sought this right because we are in a position to know
that justice operates best when it is brought out into the open.
If this were brought about, the University student and the
Florida Alligator would be able to cover such trials, and there therefore
fore therefore ensure to the student body that in all cases, the student was
at least heard to the fullest and adequately represented to ensure
a just decision.
The Alligator is not proposing any basic change in the Honor
System. After studying other forms of cheating prevention on other
campuses, in comparison with Floridas Honor System, we are
convinced the latter is by far the best.
Less Pressure
The student during examinations is relieved from "pressure by
proctors, and he may cash checks in Gainesville with an air of
relief that the merchants of the city have faith in the System,
and its judicial branch, the Honor Court.
We believe that the student body has been lucky in having
Honor Court justices of high caliber, ones who sought to be fair
with those brought before them. But these students, admittedly
having little or no experience In proper judicial procedure, can
make errors. k
Opening up these trials would be of benefit to the student. Jus Justices
tices Justices would be more alert to proper judicial procedure, and
eventually pave the way for more experienced and mature jur jurists
ists jurists sitting on the bench.
It would also warn student violators that cheating, stealing
and passing bad checks tire not crimes they can commit and re repeat
peat repeat time and again without their fellow students knowing who
they are and what crimes they were.
The argument for secrecy versus open trials is not "How far do
you go in releasing names and/or admitting the press? but How
far do you extend the label of secrecy in denying public access to
the record of administrative and judicial bodies?
We are sure few would prefer to see closed trials in circuit
and county courts. For an excessive judicial system could work
in secrecy, decidedly against the well-being of toe citizens of toe
Open Honor Court trials could be accomplished by an amend amendment
ment amendment to the Student Body Constitution, for the students must sup support
port support such a move before it eould come about.
Strong Hand Needed
The Florida Alligator has requested Chancellor Bob Graham
that a member of the newspaper be permitted to witness "a
trial this semester. We have been denied this privilege cm the
grounds that "all information concerning the identity of violators
of the Honor Code, and of those students charged with violations
of the Honor Code, shall be confidential and shall be disclosed
only to the extent necessary for the performance of the official
functions of the Honor Court. (Section 411 Student Body Consti Constitution),
tution), Constitution),
Chancellor Graham, who has served as a justice and now
Chancellor, for nearly two years, requested toe Alligator not to
print the information in Tuesday's paper before the paper went
to press. He stated that information contained in the editorial
was "confidential.''

tk Auihar f RaU V Round U* flag, Boy! and
Bartjool Boy with, Chttk")
Today let us apply the hot white light of sustained thinking to
the greatest single problem besetting American colleges. I refer,
of course, to homesickness.
It is enough to rend the heart, walking along a campus at
night and listening to entire dormitories sobbing themselves to
sleep. And in the morning when the poor, lorn students rise
from their tear-stained pallets and refuse their breakfasts and
shamble off to class, their lips trembling, their eyelids gritty,
it is enough to turn the bones to aspic.
What can be done to overcome homesickness? Well sir, the
obvious solution is for the student to put his home on rollers
and bring it to college with him. This, however, presents three
serious problems:
1) It is likely to play hob with your wine cellar; many wines,
as we all know, will not travel.
2) There is the matter of getting your house through the
Holland Tunnel, which has a clearance of only 14 feet, 8 inches.
This, of course, is ample for ranch houses, but quite impossible
for Cape Cods, Georgians, and Saltboxes, and I, for one, think
it would be a flagrant injustice to deny higher education to
students from Cape Cod, Georgia, and Saltbox.
8) There is the question of public utilities.. Your house houseand,
and, houseand, of course, all the other houses in your townhas wires

start rolling your house to college that you are, willy-nilly,

ble. feasible. The thing to do, then, is to make your campus lodgings as
close a replica of your home as possible.
Adorn your quarters with familiar objects, things that will
constantly remind you of home. Your brother Sam, for instance.
Or your citizenship papers. Or a carton of Marlboros.
There is nothing like Marlboros, dear friends, to make you
feel completely at home. Theyre so easy, so friendly, so wel welcome,
come, welcome, so likable. The filter is great. The flavor is marvelous. The
Flip-Top Box is wonderful. The tattoo is optional.
Decorating your diggings with familiar objects is an excellent
remedy for homesickness, but it is not without its hazards.
Take, for instance, the case of Tignor Sigafoos and Estabrook
Raunch who were assigned to share a room last fall in the
freshman dorm.
Tignor, an ice-ekating addict from Minnesota, brought with
him 44 barrels over which he had jumped the previous winter
to win the Minnesota Jumping-Over-Barrels Championship.
Estabrook, a history major from Massachusetts, brought
Plymouth Rock.
Well sir, there was simply not enough room for 44 barrels and
Plymouth Rock too. Tignor and Estabrook fell into such a vio violent
lent violent quarrel that the entire dorm was keot awake for twelve
days and twelve night. Finally the Dean of Men was called in
to adjudicate the dispute. He listened carefully to both sides of
the argument, then took Tignor and Estabrook and pierced their

In one *ay, it is regrettable that the
students of the University have so few
opportunities to gain the viewg of out outstanding
standing outstanding speakers who come to the
University. Religion-in-Life Week pro provides
vides provides that one great period during the
academic year when ideas and varied
opinions are stressed in a continuing
five-day period.
No two speakers are of the same
background: Acheson, a political
leader and statesman; Kermit Eby,
leader in labor and educational organ organizations
izations organizations : Prentiss L. Pemberton, pro professor,
fessor, professor, minister, author: ad infinitem.
Much of the credit for making Relig Religion-in-Life

to Drs. Charles McCoy and Delton

It is through their liberal philosophies
and appreciation of student interests
that Religion-in-Life Week has not be become

meaningless period.
The Executive Committee, Evy Pait,
Lila Williams, Klaus Koch and Dick

Last but not least, President J. Wayne
Reitz for his encouragement.
Our one suggestion we hope the
time comes when such weeks* will be

the role of education in this changing
world, and other ideas are presented
more to the students by outstanding
speakers. For life itself and gaining a
deeper understanding of it, extends

A wealth of knowledge that will lead
to a more understanding and tolerant

association with the foreign students.
The misinformation that ftiany Ameri Americans

Bond Issue Said Important

(Continued From Page ONE)
Alter Use architects completed
their plana for a new hospital,
the county found that it did not
have sufficient money to go
ahead on the building. Even with
federal Hill-Burton funds, they
were short more than half a
million dollars.
Election Failed
Another bond issue was called
for in the Spring of 1967. This
election failed, even though a
majority of those who voted
favored the bond issue; enough
voters did not turn out. (The
Florida Constitution requires
that more than 50 per cent of the
registered freeholders vote be before
fore before a bond issue can carry.)
Some political observers say
the election faded because bond
issues almost always fail when
there is not a new registration
for the particular election; old
election rolls have too much
dead wood to make possible a
50 per cent turnout in a spe special
cial special election.
Others say it failed because
of local resentment over choice
of site, or because the voters
really wanted an addition to the
old hospital rather than a new
This brings us up to the pre present

20 election.
Because hospital beds are des desperately

not enough money now on hand
to build even an addition to the

commissioners have called for
another bond issue election on
February 20. There has already

At the same time the pro problems

pointees. Appointees. This question has not
yet been settled, and will be
brought to court once the bond
issue is decided, (To bring a
law suit now would invalidate
bonds, and there is a July 1
deadline on letting the hospital
contract if federal funds are to
be obtained.)
As a result of the political
contest over control of hospi hospital
tal hospital affairs, there has been ut utter
ter utter local confusion on what the
election next week will decide.
Some feel that to vote for the
bonds, now, would give tacit ap approval
proval approval to some political man maneuvering*
euvering* maneuvering* that have been going
cm recently. Others say that a
yes vote would signify appro approval
val approval of trustee management of
the hospital rather than control
vested in the Commission.
However, in actual fact, next
weeks election can decide only
one thing. This is: the voter
chooses whether or not he wants
a bond issue to finance a new
hospital building to be construct constructed
ed constructed east of the existing hospital,
and connecting with the present
structure. This, and this alone,
is what can be decided by the
Any other questions will have
to be decided, eventually, and
should be decided publicly. But
this particular bond election is
not the time or place. All a
vote of NO sill signify is that
the voter is not in favor of
added hospital facilities financ financed
ed financed through a bond issue.
More Cost
What if the bond issue fails?

Because the need is so desper desperate,
ate, desperate, and because the contract
must be let by July 1, probab probably
ly probably the County Commissioners will
go ahead with the present plans
for an addition to the existing
site, but they will finance it
through revenue certificates in instead
stead instead of through bonds.
There are two difficulties with
this method. First it would cost
more. The property owner
would not be saved any money,
since, directly or indirectly, any
financing will have to be paid
through property taxes.
However the revenue certifi certificate
cate certificate interest is higher, so the
cost to the county would be up to
$76,000 more than if the money
came from bonds. This would
be $75,000 of taxpayers money
that is simply going to interest
payments, and not giving the
taxpayers a single extra thing.
Second, if the county borrows
on revenue certificates for a
hospital, it will be using up its
last borrowing potential. In the
event of emergency or catastro catastrophy,
phy, catastrophy, the county will not have
any remaining security to bor borrow
row borrow against.
How do you make up your
mind on how to vote? Actually
it comes down to the question of
whether you are more anxious
to indicate your dissatisfac dissatisfaction
tion dissatisfaction with the conduct of power
politics locally (if you think
a negative vote does this), or
whether you want more hospi hospital
tal hospital beds paid for in the most
economical fashion possible at
the moment.
I personally am willing to
forego the dubious change of
disapproving what I consider
improper actions and decisions
in favor of getting more beds.
Thus, even though I disap disapprove
prove disapprove strongly of the way the
thing has been handled to date,
I am voting FOR bonds.

    Despite a practice schedule hampered by pool repairs
    and cold weather, Coach Jack Ryans Florida swimming
    team seeks to defend a two-year undefeated record in its
    home pool this afternoon, when the Georgia Tech swim swimmers
    mers swimmers invade the Florida Pool.

    The Gator tankmen have not
    practiced in the pool since Jan.
    17, when it was closed for repairs, j
    and, except for a brief visit to
    the Naval Air Station pool in
    Jacksonville, they have not had
    any formal practice sessions.
    Ryan has expressed concern
    about both the physical condition
    and the mental attitude of his
    team. The grey-haired mentor
    said that since we havent been
    able to practice in several weeks,
    were not in good shape. Further,
    the long layoff has hurt morale.
    The Florida coach, who has
    captured four Southeastern Con Conference
    ference Conference championships and been
    runner-up twice in his six years
    at the University, regards Tech
    as a good, sound outfit which
    has been winning pretty steadily
