A sunblasted day that sweltered

The College of Engineering was
the biggest jolt. A dormant Rus Russian

the Engineering College broke its
old voting record by noon and fin finished

The engineering vote was
strongly aided by an official en engineering

One Dean yelled to a novi .g

The political upshot of this is
that a new bloc has arisen on

According to the new Florida
Union Planning Committee, head headed
ed headed by Dr. D. L. Scudder, the pre present
sent present union lacks space and many
needed facilities.
Theatre Needed
A large theatre for Florida Play Player
er Player productions is needed. Many or organizations
ganizations organizations need meeting places
in the union.
In the conceivable new union
there will be a ball room with sp space
ace space for 2,000 people, beauty and
barber shops, and a larger brows browsing

Also it would have more photo photographic
graphic photographic darkrooms, 20 billiard
tables, and 12 bowling alleys.
There would be a headquarters
for off campus students as
well as lockers for them in the
new building.
The union will have 75 rooms
for guests and a central food ser service
vice service with dining room service as
well as a cafeteria.
Old Union Used
After this new union is built
what will happen to the present
union? In all probability it will be
used by the department of Arts
and Sciences.
For eleven years the Univer University

union. Several years ago nearly
70 per cent of the students, in a
campus wide poll, said they would
be willing to have the tuition rai raised

Next semester, if the 15 dollar
increase passes State Legislature,
our tuition will be raised. Pres President

iversity University Board of Control have a agreed
greed agreed to let a large portion of this
money go toward a new Florida
Union.
With the money a Federal loan
can be secured and building will

in the words of Dr. Scudder, be a
gigantic University Club for
all.

In this category are found the
walkers of the third floor of the

Yoga. The latter yoga is purely
mental, and deals entirely with
rules for restraining the mind.
The real position with regard
to the mysterious yogic feats is
simple. For a long time before
science made the principles of
aviation known to the common
man, people knew and talked
about the concept of flying,
but persons who were said to
have possessed such powers
were considered to be denizens
of some imaginary, magic world.
Not until the physical law*

were discovered, did people ac actually

In relation to the various mani manifestations

will also not be removed until
we discover those laws of nature
which govern them.

Florida Relays to Get Underway Saturday

By JACK WINSTEAD and KENN FKNKEL
Alligator Sports Editors
Hie Florida Relays, the biggest track carnival in Dixie, will
get underway Saturday morning at 9:30 on the new Florida asphalt
track.
Over a thousand track and held athletes already have begun
to swarm into Gainesville for the sixteenth annual running of the
Relays, originated by Florida track mentor Percy Beard in 1939.
This years meet will initiate the first full-season use of the
new track. The Olympic-type oval was used last year only for the
state high echoed championships.
The new track, designed by coach Beard, has a running surface
composed of an asphalt composition which makes it useable under
all weather conditions. This composition also makes for faster
times, and Beard looks for several records to fall in the one-day
event.
Louisiana State, powerful defending Southeastern Conference
track powerhouse, is among the early entries in the meet. In
addition to LSU, coach Beard has received entry blanks from all
SEC schools, with the exceptions of Mississippi, Tulane and
Georgia Tech.
Duke University, which brought cinder star Dave Sime to the
Relays last year, has entered, along with Dartmouth, Mary*
land, The Citadel, demson, North Carolina North Carolina State,,
Wake Forest, Michigan, South Carolina, Florida State, and many
others. Beards growing list totaled 31 colleges at last count.
One Relays winner from last year returns to defend his title.
FSUs Jim Casteel won the broad jump in 1966. Casteel figures to
be one of the busiest entrants in this years event as he is tenta tentatively
tively tentatively scheduled to compete in the broad jump, as well as thres
relays the quarter mile relay, mile relay and medley.
The Seminole cindermen, who captured the Coliseum Relays in
Montgomery, Ala., earlier this month, also boast a pair of fine
milers in Charles Nye and Doyle Ruff.
FSU LSU Battle Looms
Florida State will run into a ston wall, though, in LSU, for
the Bengals trounced the Seminoles in a dual meet recently. LSU
will bring such well-known trackmen as Billy Cannon and Ralph
Fabian, who excel in the 100-yard dash.
Cannon also puts the shot over 50 feet and Fabian rims a leg
on the mile relay, and both compete in the 440 relay and sprint
medley. Ernie Wall is another Tiger great who is a standout half halfmiler,
miler, halfmiler, but since this event is not run in the Relays, he will add
support in all the relay events.
Northeast Louisiana State will bring four potential champions
to Gainesville Saturday in century-man Dave Styron, who has
been clocked in 9.4, Don Styron, who has registered a 14.4 in the
120-yard high hurdles and Don Eiiand and Jack Williams, who
have turned in 9:33.8 and 9:36.5, respectively, in the two-mile
event.
Coach Beards tentative list of Florida entrants scheduled to
compete include Bobby Joe Green (doubtful because of a leg in injury),
jury), injury), Tommy McEachren and captain Don Lucey in the century centurydash;
dash; centurydash; Tom Michels in the 120-yard high hurdles; Jack Huenne Huennekens,
kens, Huennekens, Dale Patten and Bobby Fuller in the twonmile; Jim Beaver
and Danny Royal in the shot put; Bill Everett and Stan Mitchill,
discus; John Hale, javelin; Art Foster and Dick Romfh, broad
jump; and Romfh in the pole vault.
Beard had figured the Orange and Blues best chance of win winning
ning winning an event to be in the quarter mile relay, but the injuries of
sprint stars EUis Goodloe and Green put a damper on UF hopes.
Goodloe has had an ingrown toenail, while Green suffered a
pulled leg muscle.
The head Gator track mentor said he would probably insert
a foursome of Lucey, McEachren, Don Deal and Goodloe. This
UF team will duel th likes of a crack I4SU combo, anchored
by Cannon and Fabian, which has already registered a 41.7, five
seconds better than the current Relays standard. Maryland also
reportedly has a fine relay team, paced by speedsters Jonas Speigel
and Don Whittaker.
Battles are already shaping up in several events, as a check
of the entries readily shows. The shot put record of 56 2V4 set
by Fred Berman in 1957 is in definite danger. Auburn boasts a
sophomore putter who has tossed the heavy ball 53 6*4 in
Richard Crane, and L&Us Cannon consistently throws beyond the
50-foot mark.
Kearney Raybun Trophy
The most important feature of the Relays is the presentation of
the Keamey-iaybun Memorial Trophy, perhaps the most highly highlycherished
cherished highlycherished honor a track man can receive in a Southern meet.
First awarded in 1947, in memory of Francis Kearney and A1
Raybun, former Florida cinder greats, the trophy is given to the
outstanding performer in the meet. Thus, it can go to a fresh freshman,
man, freshman, junior college man, or a high schooler, as well as to a uni university
versity university class athlete.
In the past the trophy has been awarded to some great ath athletes,
letes, athletes, who have turned in really outstanding performances in the
meet.
David Rowe of Mercer wm the first winner, in 1947. His <
3 % high jump set a new record, and he took second plac in the
broad jump with a leap of 22 1/6.
Minnesota wowed the crowd with many outstanding feats in
1949. The northern schools Byrd Thompson set a meet record
in the shot and in the discus to capture the coveted trophy that
year.
Floridas Bill Adams earned the trophy in 1948 with a 9.7 100-
yard dash time, while J. Papa Hall won it in 1951, and again in
1963. Hall set new high jump records, soaring over the bar at 6
% and 6 7K. The latter standard still stands.
Dukes Joel Shankle captured ft in 1954, winning the high hur-

Boast Fine Relay Teams \s£ J 9
For Quarter Mile Event _r^ddul
By JACK WINSTEAD
Alligator Sports Editor
One of the moat hotly-contested races in this Saturday* Sixteenth
Annual Florida Relays could well be the 440-yard relay event.
Louisiana State is definitely a threat to capture the laurels in
this race, as they boast a strong relay team anchored by Mr.
Everything Billy Cannon and Ralph Fabian. It is rumored that
Maryland will bring a pair of fine sprinters to the Relays, and
they must also be considered a potential winner.
Floridas chances to give these two schools a run for their
money would be exceptionally good, If a pair of ace Gator dash dashers
ers dashers were sound. Ellis Goodloe, who has clocked 9.6 in the 100-yard
dash, has Just recovered recently from a toe infection and began
to get into shape last week.
GREEN: PULLED LEG MUSCLE
Bobby Joe Green, punting ace on the varsity football squad,
has reportedly turned in a 9.5 In the century, but he has been
hampered by a pulled leg muscle and may not run at all Satur Saturday.
day. Saturday.
Head coach Percy Beard will probably run a relay foursome
composed of captain Don Lucey, Don Deal, Tommy McEachren
and Goodloe. Lucey has registered a 10 flat in the 100, McEach McEachren
ren McEachren did under 10 seconds while in high school two years ago and
Deal is reportedly capable of 10 seconds or better.
It will be no surprise to this writer if coach Beard does manage
to come up with the winning combination by the time this event
is to be run Saturday. Beard has placed a winning foursome in
the Southeastern Conference Meet four times in the fiv# years
the event has been run.
GATORS CAPTURE FIRST SEC 440 RELAY j
The Orange and Blue captured the first 440 relay in 1954 and re repeated
peated repeated the following year. Florida seemed well on its way to a
third consecutive victory in the 56 meet when, in one of the hand handoffs,
offs, handoffs, the baton was dropped.
The UF team was so far ahead in the race that there was still a
possibility of winning, but just as the baton hit the cinders it was
stepped on and smashed into a thousand splinters.
In 1957, Beards boys were not to be denied. A team of Lucey,
Goodloe, and departed stars Lincoln Knowles and Jim Smith
breezed around in oval in record-breaking time, 4 2 seconds flat, j
JONES, GOODLOE, WATSON, LUCEY: 41.6
Last year Lucey and Goodloe combined forces with former Ga Gators
tors Gators Davey Jones and Bumper Watson and set another new SEC
Standard of 41.6, nosing out a potent LSU team in the process.
With Lucey and Goodloe back for their last whirl, and with a
trio of speedsters like Green, Deal and McEachren around, who
knows what could happen this year?
For the record, the world mark in the quarter mile relay is
99.9, set in 1967 by Abilene Christian College and the University
of Texas.
Woodruff Postpones Intersquad Tilt;
Oranges Down Blues in Scrimmage
Head football coach Bob Woodruff called off the annual Orange
and Blue spring game last Saturday because of the sloppy condi condition
tion condition of the field, but a game-type scrimmage was held on Florida
Field for the benefit of those attending the spring meeting of the
Florida State Sportswriters Assn, and UF alumni in town for their
annual meeting.
The Oranges whipped the Blues, four touchdowns to one, spark sparked
ed sparked by the hard running of non-scholarship halfback David Blud Bludworth
worth Bludworth and flashy dashes and defensive plays by Don Goodman, who
, missed most of the spring drills with an injury.
Bludworth chalked up one Orange score on a 35-yard pass play
from quarterback Tom Batten, and Goodman romped 85 yards
for another. Gene Page and Scotty Dunlop pushed over the two
touchdowns for the winners, on short plunge plays.
The Blues lone counter came on a one-yard thrust by 213-pound
fullback Dickie Jones. Jones was the workhorse for the losers.
Another Jones boy, transfer-quarterback Jack Jones filled the air
with aerials late in the drill In a show of passing ability.
