New Collegiate
Political Group
Nominates Slate
Returning to campus for sum summer
mer summer school only a short time af after
ter after finishing their finals, campus
politicians immediately swung into
high gear and filled many rooms
with smoke.
Reason for the speed was that
qualification deadline for the can candidates
didates candidates was set for 5 p.m. the
second day of classes.
All weekend the politicians ran
around trying to find out who was
back, who had made his grades,
who was willing to run, and
who would be in which party.
The Liberty Party, meeting at
the ATO house under the lead leadership
ership leadership of Student Body President
Tom Biggs, decided they did not
want to co-endorse a slate, but
would rather have a real two twoparty
party twoparty campaign.
Perhaps this was to make up
for the one-party fiasco of last
Spring, when Biggs' Liberty Par Party
ty Party made a clean sweep of the
election with no organized party
in opposition.
The opposition, consisting of
many elements of the old Univer University
sity University Party, met at the Pike House
and decided to call themselves by
tile ivy-leagueish title Collegiate
a e
Pike Jim Martin, ex-University
Party Chairman, was selected as
Chairman of the Collegiate*, and
also as their candidate for veep.
For President they decided to
run at year old co-ed graduate
student Mary Jane McPherson,
who claimed that she could count
on support from the many teach teachers
ers teachers who are in summer school,
especially those from South-East
Florida where she is teaching.
The Liberty Party nominated
AE Jerry Browder for the num number
ber number one slot, and ATO Harold Me-
Cart for veep.
The Collegiates real problem
came on choosing a candidate for
Secretary Treasurer, indepen independent
dent independent Marty Rothstein, past Pre President
sident President of the now defunct SAM
Colony, was a strong contend contender
er contender for the post.
Rothstein suffered from a run-in
with Miss McPherson last sum summer
mer summer (when she was Secretary-
Treasurer and he was, for a short
time, Secretary of Finance) as
well as general opposition from
many members of the party.

Despite his threat that he would
run independently if refused the
nomination by the Collegiate Par*
ty, Rothstein was dropped from
the slate, and the Collegiates de decided
cided decided to co-endorse Liberty can candidate
didate candidate Norm Wyckoff of Phi
Gamma Delta.
While the Liberty Party met
downstairs in the ATO house, the
Summer Election Board met up upstairs
stairs upstairs in the same house.
Perhaps the fact that this Board
to appointed by Tom Biggs ac accounts
counts accounts for the members being
connected with the Liberty Party.
One interesting decision made
by this Board, after negotiations
conducted by Biggs with Dean
Beatty and leaders of both par parties,
ties, parties, is that poop sheets may be
tied onto trees.
Done to increase student inter interest

nevertheless a violation of the

supposed to enforce.

dependently independently for Chancellor, and
pulled 200 votes in a race that
was closely contested between Phi
Delts Hyatt Brown (Liberty) and
Sigma Chis Joe Chapman.

Sigma Chi lost the Spring race
for Chancellor; but stands a good
chance of coming back with Head
Cheer Leader Ed Rich.
Although Rich was unable to pull
Georgia Seagle Hall (of which
he was a member until he re recently
cently recently pledged Sigma Chi) away
from tiie Liberty Party, he will
personally carry many of the Sea Seagle's
gle's Seagle's votes.
The fact that his Liberty Party
opponent Emmett Anderson has
had no Honor Court experience
should also help Rich.
The race for Clerk of the Ho Honor
nor Honor Court throws Cliff Landers,
the only independent being rim
by either party for one of the top
five offices, against Lambda Chi
Dave Flood.
If Landers should win by a sig significant

in summer school at least, the

that what is true academically of
this university is true of the ma majority
jority majority of such colleges.
For that reason, to explore the
real problem of why more than
100,000 qualified students fail to
reach college each year, lets
look at the situation here on our
own campus.
According to Dean of Students
R. C. Beaty, there are sci the
state of Florida many students in
the upper one-fourth of their
high school graduating class who
never attend college. Every
year, he stated, hundreds, even
thousands of graduating seniors in
Florida high schools all quali qualified

cases the reason for this non nonattendance

lack of money.
The severity of this problem,
just in Florida alone, is further
demonstrated by a report issu issued
ed issued this week by the office of
the Dean of Men. A study made
by the Alumni Council, the report
analysed student aid of all types
at the University of Florida, In Including

Where To Find Aid
The Councils report attempted
to pinpoint the problem when it
stated in a preface that there
are increasing sources of scholar scholarship
ship scholarship aid in the state of Florida if
we know where to find them.
Indeed, nation-wide there are
many scholarship each year that
go unawarded, even unapplied for,
because the eligible students do
not know of their existence. In
recent years, according to the
U.S. Office of Education, an
average of $4 million in scholar scholarships
ships scholarships has gone unclaimed
These millions in stipends
amount to approximately 22,000
scholarships per year that are not
taken, and authorities cite two
reasons for this.
First, there are some times
strings attached that rule out
many applicants. Second, as stat stated,

How To Got One
According to Dean Beaty, whose

that a persons chances for a fin financial

Last year a total of $458,853

these, excluding athletic awards,

Though the best known type
of aid, scholarships are not ths
