Dry County Life.. Or, How to Beat the Law

The citizens of Alachua Coun County,

county a dry one. It i per perhaps
haps perhaps a moot point whether the
citizens so voted for their own
good, or for the students. The
benefits Should apply equally,
as well as the deprivations, to
both town and campus folk.
FROM THE students angle,
what to the result of being in a
dry county? Do the students

the 3.2 beer sold in Gainesville.

It is a 72-hour beer, which

And likewise, in general, the

TOWMR HAS VISITORS
Two students got a birds-eye view of the campus, again.
Atop the Century Tower two UFera found a panorama of campus
living spread before them. -' 1
We had both just come out of a class and were walking past*
the tower. I saw one of the doors open and I tapped my friend s
and told him that this was a chance of lifetime to see UF.
So we both ran up to the tower, looked around, scooted in and 4
chose who would climb to the top first. I won.
It was great. Ive never seen anything like it The only thing,
that I have to say though, the tower itself needs to be finished
inside. Its dank, dark, and smells as if the whole place was a
mass of mildew. Lots of library books to mildew, too.
We left when one of the other couple who had beat us to the
top warned us that the campus police were cruising our way.
When I told one of my friends that I had been to the top of the
tower he said that it wasnt terribly unusual; someone seems to
make a habit of leaving the doors open. I guess hes right.* -*
Last semester several students went to the top of the tower
after it was left unlocked one Saturday night.

in free kicks, and hip to the

some. Now we're real hung up in o
crazy big hassle, digging whether
that group, or any group so grooved
and so hip con keep on swinging.
We're making it on o wild spot
of that hassle. We've got eyes to tag
o little of that spot as o lost
lay-down pad for those who here
conked out so that group might still score.
It's frantically cool and jivey
that we're on this kick. But in o
bigger ribble we can't shake up,
we can't sound off, we can't even
clue in this jazz. The cool cots,
with us and down under, who flipped here,
hove pegged it straighter than we
could ever mess with. The squares
will never buy this bit, nor dig the
lyrics we spiel Here; but they can't ever
put down what those studs did here. It's
for us, the on-cots, who ought to
pick up on those still-wailing
blues which the off-cats who goofed here
hove blown so crazily up till now.
Mon! Like we really ought to bo hero
with eyes fixed on this wild gig
that still needs action, that from those
far-out D.O-A.'s we get a little
higher on that kick for which
they really went and flipped their
gaskets; that we take it on to set
straight that these cots shall not
hove kicked off square; that this group
under God, shall blow o crazy
new sound, and that a hot combo
of the hipsters, by the hipsters,
and for the hipsters, shall not
cut out from this scene.

MI-STARS TODAY TODAYBABY
BABY TODAYBABY GATORS TOMORROW
The varsity athletes of today were the freshman stars
of yesterday. No university can play top grade athletics
if each year it doesnt replenish its teams by acquiring the
best crop of graduating high schoolers possible.
Saturday night the states top prep gridders will play
in the annual North-South All-Star football game. In 12
previous contests the South has won seven while the North
has captured five.
Seventy-six boys will take part in this years classic.
Thirteen of the All-Stars have decided to stay in Florida
and play their college football with th Fighting Gators.
Six Southern All-Stars have cast their lot with the Gator*.
Jerry Newcomer, a 6-foot, 170-lb. halfback, from Miami High
will be in theSouth backfield Saturday night. While Steve
Long, a 220 H>. tackle, from North Miami High will anchor
the Souths line. Long was chosen to All-City, All-Star, and
All-Southern teams last season. Both boys will attend the
Other Southern All-Stars from the Miami area planning
to play for the Baby Gators next season are: Larry Beck Beckman,
man, Beckman, guard from Miami Edison, and Tom Shannon. Curley
Beckman will try to carry on the Edison High tradition
of contributing fine gridders to Gator squads. Larry Liber Libertore
tore Libertore and Russ Brown, 1960 freshman standout, both played
their high school play at Edison. Shannon, an Ali-Catholic
choice of quarterback, could be one of the top signal-callers
on next years freshman team.
Allan Poe of Tampa Robinson is another of the Souths
halfbacks who chose the UF. Poe gained 1170 yards last
season and scored 14 touchdowns.
The North is also loaded with gridders intent on play playing
ing playing for UF squads. Topping the offensive parade will be
quarterbacks Jimmy Hall of Escambia and Bud Williams
of Tallahassee Leon. Hall and Williams areboth fine field

F'rom Pensacola Ifigh, the same school that gave the
