Conformity or Conviction?

UNLIKE THEIR medieval cousins,
universities today are existing in an in intensely

amount of preaching or editorializing is
going to change that fact, yet it is to
this materialistic world that universities

to generous gifts and public taxation,
This is all good if we use materialism
for constructive ends, which may act as
the bridge and not the goal of the good
Universities today tend to be falling
to the supreme temptation of a mater materialistic

We cant help but agree with
reviewer. Judy Bates, that the
recent Florida Players pro production,
duction, production, Misalliance, was a
strange mixture of perfection and
inadequacy. The play, however,
was hardly representative of the
majority of plays presented by
the group this year. Dr. Leland
Zimmerman has done a fine job
as director of the drama group
and is responsibe for the success
of first-rate productions such as
The Beautiful People (1955),

The Crucible (1957).

field of sports today.
The soft-spoken track tutor
originated the Florida Relays In
1939, and today, it is the largest
track carnival In the Southeast.
He is the designer of the new,
all-weather, asphalt-fibre compo composition
sition composition track, on which the re recent
cent recent state high school meet was
held and ten state records were
broken or tied.
Beard introduced concrete shot
put and discus rings to the track
world a few years back, and they
are now authorized for all NCAA
championship meets. They were
also used in the 1956 Olympic
Games at Melbourne, Australia.
Last March, when it became
evident that the new track would
not be completed for the 1958
Florida Relays, Beard had four
of the new rings laid at Gra Graham
ham Graham Held, with the result that
distances were improved in
meets throughout the season.
The new track, used for the
first time in the state meet,
though not fully completed, is con considered
sidered considered a boon to the sport in the
South. There are nine regula regulation
tion regulation width lanes all the way
around the 440-yard oval, and
there Is a straightaway for the
100-yard dash and the 120-yard
high hurdles, so that all events
may finish in the same spot.
The two shot put and two
discus rings are concrete, while
the javelin, broad jump, high
jump, and pole vault runways
are made of the same asphalt
composition base as the runn running
ing running surface of the track.
The seats are arranged so that
the setting sun is at the backs
of the spectators. There is ade adequate
quate adequate room for some 4,000, and
there is a special section for
coaches and athletes not compet competing
ing competing in the events being run at a
given time. This prevents the clut cluttering
tering cluttering up of the infield with non noncompeting

The press box is large and
comfortable. Eventually there
will be phones from each of the
field event pits to the announc announcer,

up-to-the-minute information on
each of the events.

of his third victory, having won

Regardless of the outcome of

those who have only heard of him,
cannot help but pause and ad admire

track so far in Florida and in
