education-minded student leaders. The series will be
based entirely on two speeches givpn at the President's

a section of an address given at the Retreat by Joe Rip Ripley,
ley, Ripley, ex-president of the student body. Further articles
will continue the text of his address and the speech given

Ripley and Hale have been active in spearheading the drive
for dynamic leadership and student body action.)

We feel, that in one year's time,
we would be doing an injustice in
touching upon as many problem areas
as possible. We would accomplish
little or nothing. So we have narrow narrowed

BUT, IN NARROWING our sights
we have shot at the highest goal
within range. We are not speaking of
news coverage. A newspaper, regard regardless
less regardless of its readership, should present
broad news coverage. No decent news

guest columns should be open to all

It is the editorial viewpoint that we

aim at supporting soine grand con concept

the readers.

THIS IS NOT a limiting process as
such. It is a process of setting our
sights on some direct goal.
This goal was fired at last week weekend
end weekend before the student body hit the
campus full force. At the Presidents
Retreat Saturday and the Freshman
Forum Sunday, student faculty and
administrative leaders set the theme
for the year.
This theme is simple, and yet broad broadly
ly broadly complex: the evaluation of student
leadership and its purposes, ideals and
ideas, and the role of an enlightened
and excited student body in creating
and perpetuating a really great uni university

of higher learning and proud of

THIS IS OUR GOAL. To keep be before

OF Athletic Director
Winning football games in a respected league like the South Southeastern
eastern Southeastern Conference can be a difficult task, but this is exactly the goal
we are aiming for at the University of Florida.
~ Our coaches, the Fighting Gator team, and I wil be striving hard
as a unit to make this season a success. We can use ome help a
lot of help for that matter and members of our student body can
give it to us.
What I want to see is a school spirit here at Florida to match
£bat of other great instituions of higher learning like L.S.U. and Au-
Jflirn and Ole Miss. Those sudent bodies cause their players to rise
to great heights, for the players know there are thousands there in
the stands pulling with them -on every play.
As a visitor on the University of Florida cainpus in the past, I
am already aware of the importance of the students and alumni at
Homecoming weekend. The Homecoming spirit at Florida is rarely
matched anywhere in the country. I would like to see this sort of
spirit prsent all season long, building to a climax at Homecoming,
the final home game this year.
* There is something else that l know jS most important in an in institution
stitution institution like the University q( Florida. It is a kindred feeling be between
tween between the athletes and other stwfentS'on the campus. T believe sin sincerely
cerely sincerely that our players are students first and atfiletes second. They

to 23. /*
They are registered in virtually eyery college of the University.
Some are honor students,' and some find it necessary to study extra extrahard
hard extrahard to maintain their academic eligibility. In other words, I see
them as a cross-section of ou> great student body.
Finally, I would like to affff my personal promise that my staff
and I are ready to- cooperate completely with the student body and
Its elected and appointed officials.
