Dear Santa, Our Wishes Are Big, But Worthy
What we at the University of Florida would like to see under
our Christmas trees this year is a lot to ask, we know. Yet we feel
that it must be asked for, by all 13,000 of us students, and all 1,500
faculty and administration members.
Our requests to you parallel the great ideas and ideals we strive
for each year here on campus, but we have almost inevitably found
them just a little beyond our reach.
We do not propose to ask you for everything. We shall go more
than half of the way in attaining our ends, to be sure.
Santa, first and foremost, please bring our faculty the recognition
they so deserve, both financially and status-wise.
With such recognition, we will resolve in 1961 to carry forth our
end of the education bargain, treat them with all the respect they are
entitled to and cultivate our own interest in the knowledge they have
Then, Santa, give us the classrooms, library and study facilities
necessary for us to grow both in spirit and in mind. We will resolve
to do right by this gift and treat these facilities with all our physical
and mental energy.
Bring to our campus the spirit of learning, of curiosity in the
thing that escape human knowledge. .so that in and through this
spirit we will broaden that human knowledge to bring our world on to
greater peace and security, greater human understanding. Perhaps
we, in our own small way, will be able to do our share in this

The latest developments in student
publications, serve to emphasize the
need for improvement in certain phas phases
es phases of this vital area of student activity.
The unfortunate incident of the
-yearbook editors being dropped from
and subsequently being moved
to relinquish his editorship, along with
the Board of Student Publications re re"
" re" sultant action, revealed a rather
.. hazy nebulae of procedures through
which to deal with the situation.
M THE first place, there appar appar~
~ appar~ ently was no clear-cut procedure for
the Board to follow. No exact rules
. specify what is to be done when an
__ editor of any publication is forced to
leave school in mid-semester.
This is particularly disconcerting
as it applies to the Seminole since the
workload on that publication varies
in intensity and importance through throughout
out throughout the year.
Under the conditions, and in view
of the individuals and circumstances
concerned, the Board pirobably acted
in the best interests of everyone.
HOWEVER, in the long run, the
lack of a set of clear-cut rules of
procedure is a handicap since it makes
expedient arrival at a Judicious de decision
cision decision too dependent on the personali personalities
ties personalities and personal feelings which might
be involved at any given time.
_ In the second place, the rules gov governing
erning governing the Board are so vague as to
make it practically impossible to as ascertain
certain ascertain whether an editor of a student
publicationonce he has taken office
must remain a student in order to
continue in that capacity.
NOW, it may be ridiculous to im imagine
agine imagine anyone BUT a student holding
one of these offices, but the potential
does existand it could be cleared up
by a simple statutory clarification.
Minute as the point may be, more
specific language would avoid any un unnecessary
necessary unnecessary and time-consuming wrang wrangling
ling wrangling over terminology.
Those with less inclination toward
hard and fast rules might contend that
a rigid outline of publications policy
would tend to put procedure into a

IN PERSUADING the citizens
of the state to help us with our
problems, we accomplish nothing
by telling them that all is woe.
They wonder why the devil we
ever let things reach that point!
If we choose to tell only of the
niceties of campus life, we lull
them into complacency.

professors are not paid as much
as they would be in comparable

doing this, we tell them the

Florida. Do you ask for more?
HAVE WE been effective in
this approach? In the heart of

Not All Facts
An article in the Dec. 16 issue
has prompted me to write this
open letter to you and to the stu student
dent student body of the University of
Florida. The review was written
by Pat Tunstall and concerned
a speech made by Tarek Jabri,
visiting Public Liason officer for
the Arab States Delegation to
the United Nations.
He talked last Monday night
on American prestige in the Mid Middle
dle Middle East and pinned the usual
twin-pronged Arab excuse for
failure on Colonialism and Zion Zionism.

in that time has turned the Mid Middle
