Eminently Fair
The UF law school and its professors were
eminently fair. I was treated like any other
student, Starke told this reporter last weekend.
The Negro had said before grades were posted
that he intended to continue his studies at the
UF in the spring semester.
I still plan to continue studying and still
hope to become a lawyer, said Starke.
I dont want to give up, he declared.
Starke said he had not decided whether to
apply to re-enter the UF or another university.

University administration officials refused com comment

the school office. This makes the grading system
as objective as possible.

Claims Honor Court Trial j 1
Caused Emotional Turmoil

My counselling activities have
recently brought me in contact
with the following episode: A
student was accused of cheating
in an examination and tried by
the Honor Court some three
weeks after being notified of
the accusation.
To my knowledge the evidence
was ridiculously flimsy and, in indeed,
deed, indeed, the student was acquitted
of the charge. r
At first glance this may seem
perfectly fair and within the
spirit of the Honor System.
However, it may not be surpris surprising

weeks of waiting caused such

Starke-- Chap ter in History

(Continued from Page ONE)
On Aug. 26, 1958 the UF announced that a Ne Negro
gro Negro had qualified for admission to the College of
Law for the fall semester.
That Negro was George H. Starke Jr. ]
The stocky, nattily dressed Orlandoan entered
the UF law school on the morning of Monday,
Sept. 15, and became the only Negro in a student
body of more than 12,000.
He entered the law building almost unnoticed
and took his seat before the numerous reporters
and photographers realized what had happened.
Uncomfortable Few Hours
For an uncomfortable few hours Starke was
made well aware of the fact that he was making
history. Cameramen followed him wherever he
went sometimes snapping pictures as close as
three teet from his face.
The Negro student sat by himself during the
morning session of the law orientation program
but by the middle of the afternoon he was in
the middle of the group of law freshmen.
Starke is the son of Dr. George H. Starke,
Sanford physician and Mattie L. Starke, librarian
at Jones High School in Orlando.
He was an enlisted man in the Air Force from
1953 to 1957, serving in Japan. It was during thin
time he said he made the decision to attend law
school. He attended on the G.I. Bill.
UF Degree More Beneficial
He was an August, 1968 graduate of Morehouse
College for Negroes in Atlanta, Ga. He said he
had been accepted by several Northern law
schools but thought a UF degree would be more
beneficial to a Florida law practice.
"From the very first he tried to avoid undue
publicity, one of his classmates commented in
looking back over the past three semesters. "He
tried hard to avoid any possible trouble.
Starke himself said he appreciated the fact
that UF officials had tried not to give his at attendance
tendance attendance any more publicity than It warranted.
Fellow classmates recalled that he seldom

studied in the library unless an assignment
called for it, never ate in the University cafe cafeteria
teria cafeteria and infrequently walked around campus.
Prior to his first registration he made a special
trip to Gainesville to purchase his books before
the rush. He also secured off-campus housing on
his own.
Self-Prescribed Limits
These self-prescribed limits to his activities
may have played a large part in his acceptance,
his classmates noted.
He did not attend any football games because
his studies took most of his time, he said. He
went to the infirmary twice for sinus trouble.
Starke said he found his classmates friendly
and helpful and that he often worked with small
groups of them when tackling a particularly
difficult assignment. He could recall no instance
in which any student had acted unfriendly to toward
ward toward him.
He indicated he was wary of any prominence
offered him even by members of his own race.
He said he had been asked to appear on some
programs but had declined.
Member Os NAACP
Starke disclosed early in his first semester that
he was a student member of the National Associ Association
ation Association for the Advancement of Colored People
He said, however, that his attemdance at the
UF law school had nothing to do with his NAACP
Starke received praise from University Vice
President Harry Philpott for his conduct on the
campus. Dr. Philpott stated Starkes behavior
had confirmed the Universitys belief that he was
a serious student.
After three semesters the opinions of univer university
sity university officials, law professors and classmates were
substantially the same: Starkes conduct was
