My Fellow Students:

Chancellor, before every trial I
will have an informal conference

will hash out what both sides

sides admit need not be proved.
Instead of putting on five or six
witnesses and taking two-and-a two-and-a-half

On March 15, the students of
the University of Florida will
go to the polls to select the

In my opinion the best method

Midgleys more flagrant accusa accusations.
Midgley attacked the ADA
because (he said) they used

means of pushing emotion to the
summit and reason to the cel cellar,

rights of man (Negroes).
Mr. Midgleys basic mistake
was failing to (or not wanting
to) distinguish between the dem demonstrations,
onstrations, demonstrations, which were used to
protest disobedience of the laws
of the land (integration), and
the reasons given for this law,
amply cited by the ADA as well
as the President, the Supreme
Court and most of Congress.
Where is the failure to use rea reason,

IT IS interesting to note that
approximately one-third of the
column was devoted to pointing
out that one founder of the ADA

YAF Philosophy Wrong
With 3rd Party Nature
By DOUGLAS M MIDGLEY
The Young Americans for Free Freedom,

1 must admit that my own
political philosophy makes me
much more in tune with this
group, than with the ultra-lib ultra-liberal
eral ultra-liberal ADA.
The eharon Statement, adopt adopted
ed adopted by the YAF in conference at
Sharon, Connecticut. September,
1960, perhaps best represents
their point of view.
APPARENTLY, political and
economic freedom are inter
woven, with the duty of govern government
ment government being to protect these free freedoms
doms freedoms through the preservation
of internal order, the provision
of national defense, and the ad administration
ministration administration of justice. Heavy
emphasis is placed on the tenth
amendment to the Constitution,
which reserves primacy to the
several states or to the people,
in the areas not specifically
delegated to the Federal Govern Government.
'Let Us Help'
In the matter of recent pay
raises, the students did all they
could for the professors. In the
matter of the TV set (better:
sets) needed for the Florida
Union, I think that, were the
possibility publicly suggested to
them, the professors would be
more than willing to provide the
needed. How about giving us a
chance to prove It?
If youll announce that the Al Alligator
ligator Alligator is accepting contributions
from faculty only, I suspect
that youll be able to provide
the students with the best set
on the market.
(Hasty aside to Pat Callan:
The boldface does not betoken
snobbery. They are intended
to emphasize the fact that the
faculty should be given a chance
to carry the ball unaided.)

We could use a new system; where student government
is no longer a prep school for high level hustling, the
issues are more vital than who wins the game of foot football-stadium
ball-stadium football-stadium musical chairs, the motivation is more
noble than favor-swapping, the campus leaders are
more than eggplants with ears, and politics is less im important
