'Homey Baloney' Creates
A Realistic School Spirit

With about the same clock clockwork
work clockwork regularity that Castro Cu Cubans
bans Cubans chant death to Eisenhow Eisenhower,
er, Eisenhower, someone on this campus
decides that something really
must be done this year about
the lack of UF school spirit.
Generally, most of these projects
are dismal failures.
For example, when I was a
freshman in the long, long-ago,
some bright aspiring politics de determined
termined determined to eliminate campus
apathy by requiring all fresh freshmen
men freshmen to wear ratcaps. No one of
course gave much thought to
how or if this ruling could be
AS A RESULT, the only fresh freshmen

the scheme were two elderly
veterans who claimed the caps

heads from getting sunburned.
Later that same year by this
time the cap-wearing student
group had grown into a commit committee

the School Spirit Committee
these same leaders entered with
more enthusiasm than wisdom
into a wager on behalf of the
school with the University of Mi Miami
ami Miami on the UF-Miami football
game. The idea was that the
thought of a real gamble would
fire students into a fever pitch
for their team.
* *
THE ONLY groups fired into
a fever pitch were the campus
prognosticators booking the con contest:
test: contest: first they were aghast at
the odds we w r ere sure losers
and then later were sent into
hysterics at the stakes. You
guessed it: ratcaps.
Naturally we lost the game.
We lost more than that in pres prestige,
tige, prestige, too, when time came to pay
off. The only ones willing or
able to meet the obligation were
the members of the by this time
notorious School Spirit Commit Committee.

* *
THERE ARE reasons for
these ludicrous failures. First,
school spirit is a manifestation
of, not a driving force behind,
such things as a successful foot football
ball football team and a happy, united
student body. A scoring backfield
produces cheers, not vice versa.
Second, school spirit is such an
amorphous element that fu*row fu*rowedbrow

the students of Latin America
and the United States on this
campus. They will understand
what we go through when we

I think that it will be a good
idea if the staff of the Alligator

will help in improving relations

THE OTHER however, Mr.

with a little bit of the amorphous

AND AFTER all. school spirit
is a piece of the mystique, the
temporary transcendence of

and perhaps it takes something
small-townish and unassuming
to produce it. They say a man
always falls In love with the sim simple,
ple, simple, sweet, idealistic girl exist existing

it might be well to consider this
and apply It to that part of lifes
enchantment called school spirit.
Elaborate schemes have so far
produced only elebor&te failures.
This campus could use a few
more home# devices like free,
watermelon at a band concert
to offset its realistic atmosphere.
