it is to assure that every segment

But if the Council is going to

Loves of Dobie Gillie etc.)
Can education bring happiness?
This is a question that in recent years has caused much
lively debate and several hundred among American
college professors. Some contend that if a students intellect
is sufficiently aroused, happiness will automatically follow.
Others say that to concentrate on the intellect and ignore the
rest of the personality can only lead to misery.
I myself favor the second view, and I offer in evidence the
well-known case of Agathe Fusco.
Agathe, a forestry major, never got anything less than a
straight A, was awarded her B.T. (Bachelor of Trees) in
only two years, her M.S.B. (Master of Sap and Bark) in only
three, and her D.B.C. (Doctor of Blight and Cutworms) in
only four.
Academic glory was hers. Her intellect was the envy of
every intellect fan on campus. But was she happy? The
answer, alas, was no. Agatheshe knew not whywas miser miserable,
able, miserable, so miserable, in fact, that one day while walking across
campus, she was suddenly so overcome with melancholy that
she flung herself, weeping, upon the statue of the Founder.
By and by a liberal arts major named R. Twinkle Plenty came
by with his yoyo. He noted Agathes condition. How come
youre so unhappy, hey? said R. Twinkle.
Suppose you tell me, you dumb old lil>eral arts major,
replied Agathe peevishly.
All right, I will, said R. Twinkle. You are unhappy for
two reasons. First, because you have been so busy stuffing
your intellect that you have gone and starved your psyche. I've
got nothing against learning, mind you, but a person oughtnt
to neglect the pleasant, gentle amenities of lifethe fun
things. Have you, for instance, ever been to a dance?
Agathe shook her head.
Have you ever watched a sunset? Written a poem? Smoked
a Marlboro Cigarette?
Agathe shook her head.
Well, we'll*fix that right now! said R. Twinkle and gave her
a Marlboro and struck a match.
She puffed, and then for the first time in twelve or fifteen
years, she smiled. Wow! she cried. Marlboros are a fun thing l
What flavor! What filter! What pack or box! What a lot to
like! From now on I will smoke Marlboros, and never have
another unhappy day!
Hold! said R. Twinkle. Marlboros alone will not solve
your problem-only half of it. Remember I said there were
two things making you unhappy?"
Oh, yeah, said Agathe. What's the other one?"
How long have you had that bear trap on your foot?"
said K. Twinkle/
I stepped on it during a field trip in my freshman year,"
said Agathe. I keep meaning to have it taken off."
Allow me," said R. Twinkle and removed it.
Land sakes, what a relief! said Agathe, now totally happy,
and took R. Twinkles hand and led him to a Marlboro vendors ***
and then to a justice of the peace.
Today Agathe is a perfectly fulfilled woman, both intellect intellectwise
wise intellectwise and personalitywise. She lives in a darling split-level
house with R. Twinkle and their 17 children, and she still keeps
busy in the forestry game, Only last month, in fact, she became
Consultant on Sawdust to the American Butchers Guild, she
was named an Honorary Sequoia by the park commissioner of
Las Vegas, and she published a best-selling book called I was
a Slippery Elm for the FBI. itw m skui m *
The makers of Marlboro are pleased that Agathe is Anally
out of the woodsand so will you be it your goal is smoking
pleasure. Just try a Marlboro.*

Over 40,000 people will pack Florida
Field Saturday for the Homecoming game
between the Gators and Vanderbilt Com Commodores.
modores. Commodores.
What a difference between the 1962
Homecoming game and the 1930 classic
which opened Florid* Field to the public,
Everett M. Yon, Director of the Gator
Boosters, remembers that rainy after afternoon
noon afternoon in 1930 very well.
It was the opening of Florida Field
(minus the West stand addition in 1950)
and we had the largest crowd in the his history
tory history of Florida footballl,ooo,* Yon
Few people really felt bad that we
lost the game, 18-0, to Alabama. Everone
was so pleased with the new stadium.*


1946 Homecoming Game found Miami defeating the Gators, 20-13. White-shirted Gators, Charles Hill (65)
and Broughton Williams (75) combine to bring down Miami's David Eldridge. Notice the old fashioned hel helmets
mets helmets and jerseys, and the Florida Field east stands without the bleacher addition.

UF football was then at a high point pointperhaps
perhaps pointperhaps its highest in history. Under
Coach Charlie Bachman, the Gators had
won 22 games, lost 6 and tied 1 from
1928 to 1930.
The 1928 team weni 8-1, and was the
highest scoring team in the nation, rack racking
ing racking up 336 points.
We had some fine football teams in
those days,** Yon relates. Guys like
Dale Van Sickle, Dutch Stanley, Red Beth Bethea
ea Bethea and Clyde Crabtree were tough to stop.
Homecoming actually started in 1906,
but was called Dads Day. Yon, who was a
guard for the Gators in 1914-1915, and
later Athletic Director said the entire
weekend was much different in those days
than now.

Probably the largest margin of victory
ever recorded at Homecoming was in.
1912 when the Gators, tinder Coach G. E.
Pyle, slaughtered the College of Charles Charleston,
ton, Charleston, 78-0.
Bachmans 1928 team smashed Sewanee
71-6 in the Homecoming gsmie that year.
Things were going great for the Gators
under Bachman until two losing years in
the early thirties.
Bachman gave way to Dutch Stanley in
1933. Stanley .was head coach for three
years and compiled a 14-13-2 record.
Josh Cody took over in 1934 and was head
man from 1936-1939, winning 17, losing
24 and tying 2.

In 1940, Thomas J. Lieb became Head
Coach, a position he held for six years.
His record was 20 victories, 26 defeats
and one tie.
Bear Wolf was Head Coach from 1946-
1949, winning 13, losing 24 and tying two.
It was under Wolfs tutelage that Home Home
- Home coming provided the longest run in the
* history of Florida Field. Hal Griffin, an
18-year old freshman, raced back a punt
96 yards in the 1946 Homecoming game
against Miami. However, the Gators fell
short, 20-13. Griffins record still stands
and he went on to become head coach at
Hillsborough High School in Tampa.
Homecoming defeats proved to be the
nemesis of coaches just before and after
World War 11.
For instance, in 1947 Coach Bear Wolf
all but promised the Gator Growl crowd
a victory over a highly touted North Car Carolina
olina Carolina team.
Well give em all they can handle#
Wolf told the cheering throng#
Final score was North Carolina 35,
Florida 7.
In 1949, Wolf chose Georgia Tech as
the homecoming opponent. With Wolfs
job in danger, the Gators scored 14points
off the Yellow Jackets. However, the
Gators gave up 43.
Exit W01f.... Enter Bob Woodruff.
Woodruffs first yearl9sohe had
Auburn for the Homecoming foe. In a
stunning contest, the Gators won for the
grads, 27-7. Woodruff was King.
In his ten years at Florida, Woodruff
compiled a 6-2-2 Homecoming record.
Sure Homecoming victories make
everyone happy, Yon declared. Who
wants to travel hundreds of miles to see
the team and watch a defeat. Its not fair
.....but it is true.

The favorite target of cynics is tradi tradition.

homecoming is a sitting duck.
It has become popular to criticize Gator

townspeople, the efforts of the many peo people

Defense, as anyone who has followed'

affirm, is not any easy thing. But, despite
the number of arguments raised against
it, homecoming can be defended.
Gator Growl is the favorite target. The
cynic claims that it is no longer what it
used to be, a giant pep rally, and there therefore

But the present day Growl, so often at attacked
tacked attacked as so much pap, goes f arther than
any other event on eampus in instilling
school spirit

The giant show, produced the night be before
fore before the game, does not just happen. It
requires students, hundreds of students
working and planning together to make it
a reality.
Bringing together the script writers,
actors, technicians, stage hands, sing singers,
ers, singers, dancers and the numerous other par participants,
ticipants, participants, and giving them an opportunity
to work toward a common goal, instills
more school spirit than a dozen pep ral rallies
lies rallies ever could.
Another favorite argument of the cynic
is that Growl is no longer a spontaneous
and emotional event.
He argues that the students no longer
enjoy Growl since it has been changed in into
to into a carefully rehearsed and planned
Why then do all these cynics and the
thousands of other students attend Growl?
Is it merely to sit on hard benches for
over three hours and be miserable? Os
course not. They attend because Growl is
an all university activity and it gives
them a kind of pride to be associated with
it, not to mention their being entertained
by it.
Tired of attacking Growl, the. anti antihomecoming
homecoming antihomecoming student can always turn his
wrath on the parade, by claiming that it
merely serves to entertain the citizens
of Gainesville.

Why then do students climb trees, roof rooftops,

necessary, to view this 4 plebeian spec specticle.

They watch the parade for the same
reason they go to Growl. Here before
their eyes is the visible work of students,
often their work, passing before them.
If the students didnt care about the par parade,
ade, parade, why would they spend hour after hour
constructing beautiful and complicated
Os course, most of the floats are cons constructed
tructed constructed by fraternities and sororities in
competition for prizes, but is there any anything
thing anything wrong with competition?
Backed down to his last point, the cynic
will come up with the catch all argument
that the average student can only stand by
and watch homecoming.
Why then does this average student, who
belongs to no fraternity or sorority, take
time away from study to work on a dormi dormitory
tory dormitory decoration, yyhy do these average
students of their own free will come out
for the Growl talent tryouts, join the
planning committees, work on the tech technical
nical technical aspects.
Even the student who spends all his time
pouring over his books is apart of home homecoming,
coming, homecoming, when he attends Growl, the par parade
ade parade or just walks around campus and
views all the deocrations and signs.
He becomes for a brief moment no
longer a number, but a part of an active
and living student body, and for a short
time truly feels a part of the University
of FTorida.

IsJtWorth It

Homecoming just isnt what it used to

[There are several evolutionary aspects
of Homecoming that have outgrown their

worst offender.
Growl has been vastly expanded since
its humble origin in 1932, so vastly in
fact that it no longer fulfills its task of

an effective pep rally is at least the re rekindling

belief that a gridiron victory will ensue.
Modern Gator Growls fail to work even

Not only are fraternities and sororities

building an esthetically pleasing parade

Most sororities are now entering only
one or two point divisions. One sorority

$6 million. She did 22 knots and was 510

Vera Cruz, Mexico, to protect American

World War, the Florida was stationed
in the Chesapeake Bay Area and then as assigned

Atlantic Fleet for convoy service. She
was stricken from the Naval register on
April 6, 1931 and was scrapped according
to terms of the London Naval treaty.
The Victory Bell almost wound up in the

of the College of Engineering, contacted
Floridas congressional delegation and
made arrangements for the bell to be

Brown as he swept the last batch of trash
into a neat pile that would make a zeal zealous

how folks bring so much paper into the

all their garbage together and dump it in

Paper cups are a major portion of the
garbage. According to Sergeant
Squires, assistant concessions manager,
more than 75,000 paper cups are used at
every game. If an individual placed an
order for the cups used at one Gator foot football

cup every day for more than 200 years.
It takes the twelve-man team four days

Why back in 1959, recalled Brown,

$12,000 and a lot of guts, Bierley set a about
bout about creating the octopus-like staff that

would deliver Homecoming 1962 unto the

organizational chart, it looked like afloor

Parade Problems
Potentially the biggest crowd of all
plagues Mike Jacksons parade division.'
Jackson will have to route his serpentine
collection of UFers through a surging
cordon of Gainesville residents, visitors
and UF students. Jackson has the power
to stop anything crossing the parade route
between 1 and 3 p.m. In cooperation with
a Gainesville business advisory board,
arrangements have been made to halt an
Atlantic Coast Line passenger train,
scheduled through town at parade time.
Smooth shaving and smooth sailing are
yours if you will only get your requests
in on time, said Clay Parker, chairman
of the Technical Division. This is the be behind-the-scenes
hind-the-scenes behind-the-scenes catch-all group. What Whatever
ever Whatever homecoming needs, this group gets.
The duties of the Technican Division fall
in four general categories: general pro-

curement of all technical assistance and
materials from Plant and Grounds, po police
lice police coordination, housing for all bands
requesting it, and construction of all block
letter signs used for the parade and Gator
Growl. Even more militarized than the
clerical division, Parker requires all re requests
quests requests be filled out in quadruplicate.
Somewhere in this nebulous chain of
