Fall UF Registration
Hits High--Frosh Less

783 students, an increase of 149
over last year.
At the same time, freshman en enrollment
rollment enrollment dropped down 760 from
last Fall for a total of 2,480.
This is an expected trend,"
says Registrar Richard S. John Johnson,
son, Johnson, Due to the ever-increasing
number of junior colleges in the
Florida educational system, the
freshman class, while possibly
showing increases, will no longer
expand in proportion to the
growth of the university, as it has
done in the past.
Registration figures show a 109
percent increase in the number
of transfer students, due mostly
to jipiior college transfers.

EGs in one basket
As predicted in stories and editorials in last years
Alligator the big battle that seems to loom for the 1963
legislative year for the University is in the area of its abil ability
ity ability to serve space-age Florida.
AT THE VER\ first Board of Control meeting of the
academic year, the role of the University as the sole En Engineering
gineering Engineering College was sharply challenged by a contingent
from the Tampa area. The contingent is just one of many,
hungry for the space age services which must be provided
in our space booming state.
We have already heard from the state industrial group
she Committee of 100. It demands a state technical cen center
ter center closer to the states space industries.
OUR BEST ANSWER to the current challenge is to
parrot Dean Joseph Weil, head of the College of Engineer Engineering.
ing. Engineering. Duplication would be weakening. Founding of a center
without an established base would be costly both in time
However, we must not turn our heads on the problem
in a sense of jealous snobbery. The problem exists and the
best way to meet it is to adjust. Dean Weil has suggested,,
and Dr. J. Wayne Reitz has seconded, that the University
serve as a space center through off-campus branches with within

. Hurricanes are like fickle women.
Celia, the third of the season, just up and decided she
wasnt going to come to Florida this year. Right now Celia
is no more than a summer thunderstorm 1,000 miles out in
the Atlantic, raining on the fish.
BUT THE next one may not fizzle out in the tropics.
Although there hasnt been a hurricane in the Gainesville
area since Donna cut a swath through the state in Septem September
ber September of 1960, the danger exists.
A tropical storm could easily zero in on Gainesville and
cause a lot of unnecessary havoc and injury.
The official UF policy on hurricanes appears spotty and
ill-planned. (See story page eignt). II a numcane approacn approacnes,
es, approacnes, we will be told to remain in the dorms, eat crackers, and
then go back to class after the storm subsides.
BUT WE ask these pertinent questions which the Uni University
versity University has not yet thought out:
(1) What should happen if the dormitory water supply
should fail? (2) What should happen if the electricity
should conk outonly a few of the campus buildings have
their own generators? (3) Are we to bring food to the
dorms, and canned heat? (4) Where can the 5,000 students
living off-campus, some of whom are in sub-standard hous housing,
ing, housing, seek refuge if they think themselves endangered ?
Adequate University planning is needed before a hurri hurricane
cane hurricane does strike and we have to learn from experience.

Every September I expect to
find something different on cam campus...

Every September things are
about the same.

Freshmen look like freshmen,

Plain old ordinary student rumor
has it that the girls are unhappy
because boys can wear bermudas

a hairy-legged boy in bermudas,

look worse to a girl when she is
wearing a dress, no matter how
high her hemline may be.
Maybe that is to be expected.
Change is the easiest method of
introducing discontent. Perhaps
this year some of the girls will

ANOTHER YEAR, ANOTHER DOLLAR
With todays entry I begin my ninth year of writing columns
in your school newspaper for the makers of Marlboro Cigarettes.
Nine years, I lielieve you will agree, is a long time. In fact,
it took only a little longer than nine years to dig the Suez
Canal, and you know what a gigantic undertaking that was!
To lie sure, the work would have gone more rapidly had the
shovel l>een invented at that time, but, as we all know, the
shovel was not invented until 1946 by Walter It. Shovel of
Cleveland, Ohio. Before Mr. Shovels discovery in 1946, all
digging was done with sugar tongsa method unquestionably
dainty but hardly what one would call rapid. There were, natu naturally,
rally, naturally, many efforts made to speed up digging before Mr. Shovels
breakthroughnotably an attempt in 1912 by the immortal
Thomas Alva Edison to dig with the phonograph, but the only
thing that happened was that he got his horn full of sund. This
so depressed Mr. Edison that he fell into a fit of melancholy
from which he did not emerge until two years later when his
friend William Wordsworth, the eminent nature poet, cheered
him up by imitating a duck for four and a half hours.
But I digress. For nine years, I say, I have been writing this
column for the makers of Marlboro Cigarettes, and for nine
years they have been flying me money. You are shocked. You
think that anyone who has tasted Marlboros unparalleled
flavor, who has enjoyed Marlboros filter, who has revelled in
Marlboros jolly red and white pack or lx>x should be more than
willing to write about Marllx>ro without a pennys compensa compensation.
tion. compensation. You are wrong.
Compensation is the very foundation stone of the American
Way of Life. Whether you love your work or hate it, our system
absolutely requires that you be paid for it. For example, I
have a friend named Hex Glebe, a veterinarian by profession,
who simply adores to worm dogs. I mean you can call him up
and say, Hey, Hex, lets go bowl a few lines, or Hey, Hex,
lets go flatten some pennies on the railroad tracks, and he
will always reply, No, thanks. I better stay here in case
somebody wants a dog wormed. I mean there is not one thing
in the whole world you can name that Hex likes better than
worming a dog. But even st>, Rex always sends a bill for worm worming
ing worming your dog because in his wisdom he knows that to do other otherwise

\belbftsf itl cast Vm A(k
Its the same with me and Mnrllx>ro Cigarettes. I think
Mnrllx>ros flavor represents the pinnacle of the tolxicconists
art. I think Mnrllx>ros filter represents the pinnacle of the
filter-makers art. I think Marlboros pack and box represent
the |>innacle of the packager's art. I think Mariboro is u jwrns jwrnsure
ure jwrnsure and a treasure, and I fairly burst with that I have
lx*en chosen to speak for Murllx>ro on your campus. All the
same, I want my money every week. And the makers of

In the columns which follow this opening installment, I will *

been spawned in tropical waters and the next

What would you do if you received this

THE BEST THING STUDENTS can do
is go to their dorms, UF Civil Defense di director
rector director Calvin C. Greene said. Most of our
dorms offer the best protection.
But if you live in one of the frame resi resident

These areas will be evacuated as soon as the
storm poses a real threat to the area, accord according
ing according to Housing Director Harold Riker.
We have a standard warning system for
such emergencies, Riker said. Students
will be warned on a door to door basis four
and two hours before the winds are expected
to reach the danger stage.
If you live in one of the frame areas, you
will be evacuated to one of the following

these areas before the storm hits. Other
dorm areas with no cafeteria facilities will

We dont have any immediate plans for

dont anticipate any real trouble.
AN ESTIMATED 5,000 UF students live
in off-campus housing most of which
would be rated substandard against the

The vicious Donna of September 1960
was the last hurricane to threaten the

THE POWERFUL STORM came up the

They just told us to stay in the dorms

Who said George Mira was overrated. He may not be
able to run the 100 in 8.9, but he can do just about every everything
thing everything else, and do it well.
Against Pittsburgh this past Saturday Mira personally
accounted for 248 yards running and passing in leading
Miami to a 23-14 victory.
He connected on 13 passes for 162 yards and pierced
Pittsburghs vaunted line for 86 more running. Miamis line
and running backs looked better than they did last season.
All this should add up to quite a battle when the Gatorfc

Tom likes the three team system. He feels that each
player on the three teams feels like a first stringer. He
looks for a continuation of depth on the Gator 3. If asked,
Batten will tell you that he's sure the Go Gators have
the most spirit of the three squads.

TOM BATTEN GOES INTO ACTION
ginning beginning of the 1960 season he was married and Coach
Graves thought he wasnt quite ready to see action. As a
passing quarterback Tom was hot needed as Bobby Dodd
was having his best passing year.
Last season Batten sat on the bench for moist of the
year until the LSU game. In the late minutes of the game
Tom went in and drove the Gators into LSUs back yard,
but time ran out before the UF could score.
The big game was at Jacksonville where, he passed for
20 points and a Gator victory. Tom credits his receivers
with winning the game. After the game, it felt as if it was
When asked if he considered that good receivers were
important to making a good quarterback, he replied, They
make him all the way.
Tom and Larry are the best of friends on and off the
field. Both are fraternity brothers in Sigma Nu and are
probably the two closest friends on the squad.
Batten expects to see plenty of action this season. Most
of the 100 or so plays hell use this season seem to come
automatically to him during the game. Tom doesnt like to
play defense and doesnt expect to play any as the Go Ga Gators
tors Gators are strictly an offensive team.
At the end of this season Tom will get to play his
final game in his home town when the Gators play Mi Miami.

Tom, a husband and father, is enrolled in the College
of Physical Education where he maintains a B average.
After graduation Batten has a two year hitch coming
with Uncle Sam. He is in the Advanced R.O.T.C. course.
Beyond that, Tom looks to Miami where he hopes to teach
physical education and coach football.
He believes that with the breaks a 10-0 season is pos possible,

As Florida State athletic direc director

But Mancha said today it would

He said it would place an
increased financial burden on
spring sports and complicate
schedules of athletes who parti participate.

that point it would put a serious
crimp in competition.
