statement shows considerable ignorance of past elections and
campus politics. For the independent vote hos been well tested,
and the fraternities plan their tactics with this in mind. They
know that the past three student body presidents, two of whom
were Independents, were in fact elected by independents who
favored them and their parties over their opposition.
You complacently ignore the fact that there are outstand outstanding

adoption of the platform which they believe best for their fel fellow

work within the existing parties that present candidates for all
offices, especially the important legislative council. You run

its also true that if one stu student,

Couldnt that student be proud

Florida Field
i -2. Home For Gators?
Alligator Sports Editor
The Gainesville Suns Joe Halberstein, in his Sun Sunday
day Sunday Sun Sports Slants, slashed away at alumni who
would rather see Florida play some of its home games
away from Gainesville. The particular mentioned was
at a new proposed 40,000-seat stadium in the Tampa-
St. Pete area.
The committee in charge of raising funds for
this new stadium has been selling the idea partial partially
ly partially on the surmise that the Gator football team will
play scene of its games on this fielc|.
The way it sounds Bobby Dodd must have some
Tech alums pushing the new stadium, too. Dodd is
aware of the psychological advantage of playing a
team on its home field, his fight for the Jacksonville
as the site of future UF-Tech contests proves this.
You, the students should be aware of the conse consequences;
quences; consequences; our alumni, who are the prime pushers of
this de-centralization should be aware of the con consequences.

Playing in our home state is not the same as play playing

cheated out of their already bought option on seats,

Alumni watch these games as entertained specta spectators,

get off their rear quarters, they are unable to give the
boost of a home student crowd.
Show the responsible parties how YOU students
feel about this. A letter addressed to the Alligator

If a stand is not taken a football schedule of the
