For years student government has

and apathy. We have had to grit our
teeth and watch each successive ad administration

ther further from the needs'of the mass of
the student body and yield to the
selfish desires of a loud minority.
The outgoing administration under

this dangerous trend.

But all these things added together
would be greatly outweighed by the
general impression that the tone and
purpose of the Ripley administration
have left on all concerned with the
University.

Vote...There f s a Reason

It would be hard to imagine what
might be accomplished if the UF stu student
dent student body and faculty would turn out
en masse to vote today.
Consider what a bloc of votes that
size could do in a local election. It
could easily become the balance of
power in any election, especially in
Alachua County where the percent percentage
age percentage of voters is notoriously low.
Gainesville and Alachua County
officials would take a long, new look
at the UF. It would cease to be an in institution

free water at taxpayers expense.
The ttitude o f governmental
officials toward UF students would
change. No longer would they be re regarded

would become another bloc of voters
to be served on an equal basis with
other voters in the city and county.

WE HAVE ALWAYS maintained
that until student government gained
the respect and thus the support of
the mass of the student body it would
not be recognized as the real voice of
the students and would therefore be
virtually powerless to effectively
serve and represent them.
The alertness, maturity and breadth
of purpose exhibited by Ripley and
his co-workers have invited a positive
reaction and the growth of respect
for student leadership by students,
faculty and administration officials.
* *
FROM THE foundations laid this
year Bob Park and future presidents
will be able to build and expand the
scope of their administrations work working
ing working towards goals of greater service
to the students and our University.
And to Joe Ripley and the members
of his administration we are thankful
for initiating what we hope will be a
new era for student government at
the UF.

To the UF faculty it seems hardly
necessary to remind you to vote. As
citizens of the city and county you
have a stake in their government.

TURNING TO THE STUDENTS.
There are three classes: (1) those not
old enough to vote, (2) those reg registered
istered registered in other counties, and (3)
those registered to vote in Alachua
County.
While students are not actually dis discouraged
couraged discouraged from registering locally,
there has never been a campaign to
get the UF student body to register.
In fact many students do not even
realize they can register in Alachua
County.
* *
THE BLOC OF VOTES you can
muster this time may be small, but it
can set an exmple for UF voters of
the future. You can help them realize
the potential power they hold.
The tired Jaycee slogan, "Get out
and vote" makes little sense unless
you have a reason to vote. But UF
students have a good reason to vote.
You are affected every day by the
government of this city and county.

Outgoing Court Defends Honor System

(EDITORS NOTE: The fol following

to the UF student body In aa
effort to stimulate interest in
the honor system.)
A Letter to the Florida Stu Student

We hope that you will find
this to b e a reasoned defense
of the Honor System. We ex expect

to the proctor system as a
means of taking a test and en enforcing

(2), that the Honor System
can and must be enforced
more effectively in order to
benefit the individual student
and the student body most.
Most students agree with the
Honor System in principle. For
any who doubt the value of a
working Honor System, let
them consider these things. A

System does this well. The
Honor System operates on

We believe that this is good
and desirable.
We are not unaware that our
belief that this is good is a
value judgment, an assump assumption;

who share these values will

The degree granted by a
school which has an Honor Sy System

than academic proficiency. It
is also a credit to the charac character

The student in a smaller

A witness to cheating gives his

think we can help a violator.
The only way in which we can

to find him. Some need psy psychological

them get it.
Generally speaking, there are
two groups of cheaters. Some
cheat regularly and actually

If you see something wild in this ink blot, like maybe
Lady Godiva fully clothed on a motorcycle, you're
ready for non-directive therapy. That's the kind where
the psychoanalyst doesnt say anything to you, and
we ourselves are very interested in it because of its
advertising possibilities.
With the non-directive approach, wed just try to think
you into smoking L*Ms. We wouldn't have to tell you
about how L 4 M, with its Miracle Tip, pure white in inside,
side, inside, pure white outside, has found the secret that
unlocks flavor in a filter cigarette. And about how
this means fine tobaccos can be blended not to suit
a filter but to suit your taste.
Following the non-directive approach, wed simply
show you the package. And this would give us more
time to polish our wedge shot, which we seem to
have trouble getting airborne. Or even moving.
