Cuba was the last Spanish Spanishheld

by the time she had achieved
her independence in 1898, she
had fought the most bitter war
of independence in American
history. The Cuban system of
agriculture had been totally
upset by the Spanish tactics of
putting all the farmers into
enormous concentration camps
in the cities where they died
like flies of hunger and disease.
The Cuban farmer had lost
his agricultural tradition. The

This was followed by the

Cuba got its independence from

'New York Style' Is Most Confusing;

tason Gustason in a senior majoring in

years he has been studying and
collecting records, periodicals,
and books on jazz. He has also
played trombone occasionally in
various jazz groups in and

The so-called New York

The first is ragtime which

most part, notated music, thus
requiring skill in reading.
There are many historians
who, with good reason, do not

Nevertheless, most of the im important

Its beginnings, however, go
back to New Orleans and to the
blues and rhythms found in
field songs, spirituals, and min-

was similarly influenced, but to
a much lesser extent.
The boogie-woogie style is
more crude and less complex

Still, Florida should allot itself a reasonable amount of hope.
After all, the Gators will have time to coordinate their forces in
the coming open date.
More important, the quality of the remaining opposition is en- I
Despite Florida State's glowing self-estimate of football virility,
the Seminoles remain small time in big league grid circles. And Mi Miiami,
iami, Miiami, usually a potent enough squad, cannot be compared with such
as Louisiana State, Auburn, or Georgia.
It is fairly certain that Florida is headed for a 5-4-1 overall rec-
But the question that appears to be in most peoples minds at the
moment, however, does not concern conjecture over the quality of
this year's team or its final standings.
Rather, it is simply a question of whether or not the school should
continue with its present coaching staff.
Those who favor the present regime argue that Coach Bob Wood Woodruff
ruff Woodruff took this team when it was the doormat of the Southeastern
Conference and molded it into a respectable league member.
Furthermore, Coach Woodruff has said he has done his best. He
has nothing to apologize for.
This is, of course, true.
On the other side are Woodruffs critics, who, while conceding
that the quality of the football team has improved under the pres present
ent present coach, insist it is still not good enough. Florida has grown under
Woodruff, but he has now carried it as far as he can; i* must
continue to grow.
Why should we (they say) retain a coach out of gratefulness?
Coach Woodruff has had ample scholarship money, a more than
generous salary, good material, enough time (ten years), and yet
has still managed to produce nothing more than so-so seasons.
He can win breathers over the likes of Arkansas State and Vir Virginia;
ginia; Virginia; he has even managed to get us into two Gator Bowl games gamesbut
but gamesbut loses time and again against the Conference giants.
Coach Woodruff is a nice guy, but his job is to draw talent and to
win games; better men are available for his price tag.
And finally, the critics argue, Florida puts too much time, effort,
and money into this business to be satisfied with moral victories and
middling finishes in the SEC.
Better to drop football completely and emphasize building up the
Khool scholastically, than to have mediocracy in both fields.
So the debate continues.
May the best decision for the school be made.
