faculty Orientation Director and assistant dean of men, Dr.
Frank T. Adams. Some remembered the kindly admonishments of
Dean Robert Beaty, coordinator of Mens and Womens Affairs.
This is a week to get acquainted with your classmates,
your officials and our traditions and to take on a scholarly
attitude, said Dean Adams.
Dean Beaty told the new students that friendship and a
democratic life were theirs while here if they could earn them.
Your job, said the veteran dean, is to ready yourselves
to fill the places of our recent graduates, Who wily yesterday
were beginners like you.
You know, he said, the University is like a cow. A cow
wont give milk you have to take it.
Thats the way it is here; he added, we dont give you an
education you have to take it. You have to take it from your
classrooms, the libraries, the gym, and your daily contacts and
enriching experiences while here.
The daily contacts and enriching experiences began im immediately
mediately immediately for the neophytes.
After University College Upper Division, ROTC and Dean of
Men s and Womens Forums they began to g.lmpse through the
mirror of rain and elusion what would be expected of them.
After Interfratemity Council and Panhellenic Form us through
Florida Union and Student Religious Association tours they got
an idea of what they could expect as UF students.
More importantly, through the Student Government and Honor
Court Forum they became aware of the vital role each one of
them is to play as a UF student.
The honor court film was shown for the first time Thursday
and most of the thoughtful freshmen got the message that a
heavy mantle of responsibility was to fall on their shou-ders. It
will be their responsibility, as pointed out. to carry on the
UF tradition of honor .when the present classmen are gone and
to begin upholding it immediately.
A whimsical but practical feature, the walkie-talkies were
used by the orientation staff in the gym and administration
building to streamline procedure.
TV cameramen converged on UF Monday for a newsree*
essay of orientation, featuring you guessed it the walkie


Way to Knowledge
Is Effort: Phillpott
Education and knowledge are not transmitted through osmosis.
You will get out of the University only what you put into it, stated
UF Vice President Harry Philpott in his address Tuesday night to the
Class of 1953.

Dr. Philpott, acting president,
in the absence of Dr. J. Wayne
Reitz, admonished the freshman
Tuesday to consider it their pri primary
mary primary endeavor to seek an intel intellectual
lectual intellectual quest.
It is of highest importance that
you choose carefully the things
you look for, since in a large
measure these are the things you
will find here.

Registration blues were felt more keenly because of the
rain. Bottlenecks abounded. But the technical coordination and
traffic control under Bill Owens, 4AR, smoothed many of the
rough spots and kept the flow of Orientation moving along.
Welcome Week, featured at the womens dorms, helped ease
the girls into their new roles as co-eds. Using a Big-sister
technique, last years dorm residents had been assigned to as
many as five little sisters to write to during the summer.
When the fair freshmen arrived, the girls maintained a
check on them to ease their passage into Gator womanhood.
Commenting on Orientation 1969, Student Director Don Allen
said, "Weve had good spirit this week, despite the rain. Weve
moved the largest volume of students in the least possible time.
And we've done more activities with less time to do them.
The week began, as will Orientation weeks always, as a week
of confusion. There were times when some wondered if UC might
mean unlimited confusion.
But now, at weeks end, the job stands almost done. Our
newcomers have spent a week becoming unconfused. They
will now spend four years doing a more thorough job of it.
Now they are with us. They will forget the days when they
signed their names in the space for their address on their in information
