ilbe Paper's Aim; All the newg with decency our only limit
'a day of sorrow
With the UF now working under the trimester
system, certain periods usually set aside by the
administration for vacations have suddenly been
incorporated into the time allotted for 'classes.
This, in itself, is not at all unexpected or
revolutionary in scope. When a college university
makes the changeover from the semester system
to the trimester system, a certain amount of time timebudgeting
budgeting timebudgeting must necessarily be done. And, naturally
student holidays are hard hit by the changeover.
Thus, first trimester saw classes run continuously
from Sept. 3 to Dec. 22 with only one holiday"
sandwiched in between namely Thanksgiving. Under
the old semester plan Christmas, a two-week layoff
from classes, had been a part of the first semester.
Following this biggest of all vacations, the students
groggily but perhaps happily trudged back to classes
for about two or three weeks preceeding finals.
Following finals came usually a break" between
the first and second semesters. Then, during the
second semester, the Easter recess" became a
lollipop to which bookweary UF students could
gingerly look forward.
Now, under the trimester system, even the Easter
break is gone.
Yes, where once we could look forward to a three
or four-day recess for Easter, now we cannot.
Easter has been given the slight by the formulators
of the winter trimester schedule.
This year Easter Sunday falls on April 14 which
by some heretofore unexplained reason either by
coincidence or by plan turns up right in the middle
of winter trimester finals. So, where before the
UF student would have been enjoying a vacation,
now he will be instead taking a C-6 final on Thursday,
April 11 and a C-5 exam on Good Friday. Good Friday
has fallen prey to education.
Finals will be given on Saturday the 13th. and Monday
the 15th., leaving Sunday alone as the last remaining
vestig6 of an Easter holiday. Finals continue through
Friday, April 19.
There is sure to be much grumbling over finals
during Easter." Already criticisms have been voiced
by some students who have discovered the facts
from page 123 in the University Record (class
schedule of courses).
There is also the religious facet of this issue. On
Good Friday final examinations will be given in
EM 366, LY 201, MS 353, MS 354 and, as mentioned
earlier, in both C-51 and C-52.
This brings up the question of whether or not the
Administration has any feelings whatsoever toward
the religious practices observed by many UF
students. Traditionally, Good Friday has been an
observance of the deathof Christ----a day of sorrow.
Is it the plan of the Administration to compound this
feeling of sorrow by forcing students to take finals
on this day of mourning?
Many students will agree that perhaps it is not
too bad having to miss the traditional Easter break
due to the finals, since many students will have a
longer 4-month vacation greeting them after April
20. But, still is this a reason to schedule final
examinations on Good Friday? Does not Good Friday
to many people hold as much or more religious
significance as Sunday?

BYU Student Riot Immature

Over 2000 students
staged a rally protest at
Brigham Young Uni University
versity University in early
December because of
administrative rejections
concerning a longer
Christmas vacation.
The rally started after
the student body was
unable to gain five extra
days of vacation time
beginning Dec. 14 instead
of the 19th to Jan. 3.
Rioters burned the
administration in effigy
and threw toilet paper
whirling through the air.
The leaders stated that
the reasons for wanting a
longer vacation as
economy and safety. One
compared vacation dates
from catalogs of 16 other
schools and found that
they averaged two days
longer. They said, we
are willing to accept a
compromise" and urged
the students to listen to
the administrations side
for the only rational
statement made by the
students during the rally.
If a student elects
not to attend classes, this
is his perogative. There
is nothing in institutional
regulations that makes
this attendancecom attendancecompulsory,"
pulsory," attendancecompulsory," said J. Elliot
Cameron, dean of
The calendar for the
opening of school,vacation
breaks, and the closing of

in advance so that each
prospective student

Because of this reason
I believe that a student
who protests a vacation
date knowing it well in
advance is acting fool foolishly.
ishly. foolishly. How important are
five days to a student?
Eventually, all the
colleges and universities
in the nation will have
much shorter vacation
periods than at present.
When the tri-semester
system or year-round

education begins the
Christmas holidays may
be cut to just one week.
I will agree that many
students on college
campuses throughout the
nation want a few more
days "for the celebration
of Christmas, but going
to such extremes as the
BYU students did is not
of the calibre of maturity.

New Frontier Faces Dilemmas

When the 88th Congress
convenes Wednesday,
President John F .Kennedy
will find his New Frontier
perched upon the high
ground of a two-year old
Mike Gora
After two congressional
sessions of frustrating
defeat on his domestic
legislation the Chief
Executive can look
forward to another
session faced with inter
and extra party
The results of the mid midterm
term midterm elections will have
but a slight effect.
As the President and
congressmen await the
starting bell two main
stumbling blocks appear
ready to derail the New
Frontier Express.
The Southern Democrats
opposed to Kennedys
controversial domestic
program during the last
session of congress,
appear ready to once
again join with right-wing
Republicans to thwart the
Presidents progressive
Secondly, Kennedys
supporters plan to begin
the session with a
renewed fight in the
Senate to pass a new,
and more easily
enforcable cloture rule.

because of extra days of
study maybe interfering
with his vacation.

(Editors note. . This
editorial reprinted in part
above appeared originally
in the Dec. 11 issue of
the Los Angeles Collegian
and was written by George
Capps, Collegian
Executive Editor.)

In view of these two
major stumbling blocks,
JFK faces two dilemnas.
He must keep the split
in the Democratic ranks
at a minimum. To do this,
the Chief Executive is
faced with the possibility
of accepting compromise
on New Frontier Legis Legislation
lation Legislation which will make it
more palatable for- the
Democrats* southern
Secondly, the President
must decide whether or
not to remain mute or to
actively support his
backers in their fight for
a revised Senate cloture
plan and in their effort
to maintain an enlarged
rules committee.
Mr. Kennedy is faced
with the choice between
deserting his supporters
on these two issues or
taking the chanceof
making a strong stand on
issues that may be
defeated. If JFK takes an
active part in behalf of
his supporters and loses,
it may well be a telling
blow to his prestige which
will hamper his program
in the next two years.
In the next few weeks
President John
Fitzgerald Kennedy will
face problems, the
answers to whichmay
either set the stage for
the future success of his
progressive New
Frontier or destine his
program to become mired
in two more years cf
compromise and defeat.

The clock and the record
book teamed up to stop
the Gators one point short
of an all-time UF record
as the Orange and Blue,
lead by Tom Baxley and
Brooks Henderson,

Baxley hit the buckets
for 33 points, one short
of his season high.
Henderson followed close
behind with 27. Both
scored well from the
charity line, Baxley
hitting 9 of 10 and
Henderson making 11 of 12.
Midway through the
second half the crowd
began calling for 100 as

minutes left reserve
guard Lanny Sommese, of
Gainesville, entered the
game and was im immediately

Sommese came to the line
with 99 on the board for
Florida and scored the
first point of his varsity
career to put the Gators
over the century mark.
The Gators averaged
56.8 per cent from the
outside and 78.1 from the
line, in challenging the

setting a UF-SEC record.
