If they are given, the exams should be limited

The new policy came in answer to the press
caused by the trimester system during final

UF Gets Research
Grant for Water
A new water purificationprocess
will be studied by researchers in
chemistry and medicine at the UF
under a federal grant of $152,532
announced by the Board of Control
If the studies prove successful,
chlorine may no longer be the bas basic
ic basic chemical for treatment of water
According to Dr. A.P. Black of
the Department of Chemistry and
Dr. W.C. Thomas of the College
of Medicine, the evidence indicates
the systems more effective and
economical than chlorine systems
can be devised.
The Army has used an iodine
system for purification of field
water supply systems for several
years, the researchers point out.
Tablets containing iodine also
have been used by the military
and by travelers in remote areas
where treated watpr is not readily
available. Many swimming pool
systems use iodine purification
Besides seeking ynore efficient
elimination of disease organisms,
the investigators will try to do
away with the strohg antiseptic
taste and smell that is charac characteristic
teristic characteristic of chlorine. This is a
significant factor in areas where
maximum amounts of chemical
have to be used to assure safety
of the water supply, they say.
During the three-year period of
the grant, they will test a new
system on prison volunteers.
These studies are expected to show
if the new system can be operated
economically on a large scale and
Although the basic principle of
the new treatment process is medi medically
cally medically safe, the medical half of
the research team will check to
see whether the system would
interfere with standard tests of
body functions and will look for
long range purity levels.
The Florida researchers cited
a 1962 report on environmental
health problems in the United
States in which the UJS. Public
Health Service found that chlorine,
which is used almost universally
in safeguarding water, is not ef effective
fective effective against micro-organisms
in concentrations normally used.

Sports Program Adds
Fast Tricky Lacrosse
An old Indian game is part of the UF required physical education
program for men.
One of the roughest games, it is played with long handled rackets
and hard balls. Called lacrosse, the game combines the contact
play of football and the speed of basketball.
The field is similar to a soccer field except the goals are larger.
The ball is passed from player to player with the rackets.
The game is compared to polo without horses and can get rough
when rackets are used as weapons.
Lacrosse is played intercollegiately by more than 90 colleges,
including the Big Ten Ivy League schools. At the present time, la lacroose
croose lacroose will not be added to intercollegiate or intermural activities
at the UF, physical education instructors say.
Coeds are also excluded from the sport at the UF.

The Paper s Aim: All the news with decency or our only limit
Governor George Wallace of Alabama has a
momentous decision to make in the near future
upon which may well rest the fate of a possible
recurrence of the Mississippi Mishap.
Were talking of course, of Gov. Wallaces stand
on the question integration yes or no.
Wallace is currently in the drivers seat. He
can do one of two things: either submit peace peacefully
fully peacefully to the integration of his state, which might
just spell political suicide for him, or he can fol follow
low follow the footsteps of two other great southern seg segregationist
regationist segregationist pathfinders, namely Arkansas Gov.
Orvall Faubus and Mississippi Gov. Ross Barnett.
Faubus, of Little Rock fame, became a national
figure almost overnight by his use of the National
Guard to bar Negroes from entering the Little
Rock schools. In his second term as state gover governor
nor governor when the incident occurred in 1958, Fau Faubus
bus Faubus shortly thereafter used these anti-integration
and anti-Fed feelings of his people to propel him himself
self himself to his third term in the state capitol.
Faubus, in a July 29, 1958 announcement, stated
The voting today was a comdemnation by the
people of illegal Federal intervention in the af affairs
fairs affairs of the state and the horrifying use of Fed Federal
eral Federal bayonets in the streets of an American city
and in the halls of a public high school.
Thus, Faubus rode public opinion to his third,
fourth and recently fifth terms as governor of Ark Arkansas
ansas Arkansas (two-year terms in Arkansas).
Gov. Barnett, a virtual unknown who was not at
all in the national spotlight before the Meredith
rhubarb last fall, by his staunch segregatioriist
stand at Oxford virtually assured himself of elec election
tion election to the position of governor for years to come.
Now, Governor Wallace is in the drivers seat.
This is how the two choices compare: If he does
decide to give in and submits to integration,
then he will have committed political suicide. He
most assuredly realizes this, as just as assuredly
did both Mr. Faubus and particularly Mr. Barnett.
Or, if he chooses, Wallace can rather follow in
the paths of Faubus and Barnett as the last of
the southern martyrs. Such a stand would
probably without a doubt assure him of reelection
and the good graces of his electorate. Its poli political
tical political suicide versus continued office.
And its a- decision only Wallace can make....
if and when integration is forced upon his state
and the universities thereof. Recently a wire
service report announced that American reconais reconaissance
sance reconaissance planes had made flights over the University
of Alabama campus at Tuskegee, making aerail
photos of the entire area supposedly in case of
a repeat of the Oxford Incident.
Alabama could become a Little Rock or a Miss Mississippi;
issippi; Mississippi; Wallace could become a Faubus or a Bar Barnett.

Ten Flows Too Profusely
dear mike sports editor
I enjoyed reading your recent
letter to the editor. It was
obviously written with great zeal
and dedication. But unfortunately,
Mike Sports Editor Emeritus, in
anger, our ink pens often flow
too profusely. . our pudgy
little fingers have a tendency to

I quote, Mike Sports Editor
pmeritus, from your letter: . .
Martin Schram claimed to have
been associated with the sports

I was serving as assistant sports

Cadet Disgusted Over 'Angels
I read in The Alligator about
the new A.F. ROTC auxiliary unit,
the Angel Flight, and I was dis disgusted.
The reason said for the creation
of this unit was for the morale
and spirit. The ROTC program
has one basic objective and that
is to train citizens for the
betterment of our national
security. For male citizens, this
should require the building of their
manly traits, which is a definite
asset in war or combat.
The marching of women along
with the ranks of men may arouse
manly traits, but it certainly does
not build them. I must admit, the
idea of women marching along
my side is very tempting, but the
fact remains their presence on
the drill field is completely
The reason for their marching
there is for boosting morale and
spirit? I doubt very seriously if
this gain in morale and spirit
will carry over in the officers
later military career, IF he should
become a regular.
I doubt if I will go beyond two
years of ROTC, but if I did, the
image of my being a leader of
trainees for the Reserve of a
fighting force along with this
female unit, if it were established
in the Army ROTC, would appall
me. This might be a flaw in my
personality, but I simply could
not stomach my masculine pride,

to be so associated. In fact, your
sports staff was so clogged with

whether a journalist could have

is not the issue here.) My only

Religion Requires Courage
Mr. Taylor in his attack on
religion has used the oldest trick
in logic of arguing from an example
to the whole. In effect he is trying
to tell us what iÂ£ wrong with a
house by examining one brick in
the wall. The Russians are the
master of this type of argument.
They claim that since the Com Communists
munists Communists took over in Russia that
health conditions have improvec
industrial out-put has greatly
increased and the people can get
consumer goods they never could
These statements are very true,
but then Communists say because
Communism has accomplished
these good results that is the
essence of goodness and all that
opposes it is bad. They completely
ignore the facts that Communism
intentionally Jgt 10,000,000
Russians starve to death,
liquidated all opposition, and
abolished all personal freedom
to gain these good results.
The Communist and Mr. Taylor
use the same type of reasoning
in denouncing religion. They say

That Five Inches Os Junk
It must be said with all sincerity
that who ever dreamed up the
COMPLAINT to register with our
maintenance crew should go back
to sleep and get another complaint.
I would be the last to say they
are the world's best; however,
the complaint as voiced in the
editorial Walls or Minds is
obviously based on ignorance. I
would expect better from the
editorial column of our paper.
I attend a class in Peabody
and was subjected to the outside
interference." I agree it was a
nuisance. These noises did not
muffle the professor's voice to
the extent that the students did

raised by the students. They were

instead they were, Sir, what about

therefore,that it is highly doubtful
that while reinforcing the walls
we cannot reinforce minds also.
I would turn now to the editor's
specific suggestion that we not
make repairs DURING class
hours. I took five minutes to stop
by the History and Political Science
Offices to see what I could find
out. Since the class I attended
met in Peabody 205, I chose the

Taylor has made the mistake of
thinking that the church is religion.
The church is made up of men
and men make mistakes. The
church is often not a good example
of the ideal of religion and at
times even retards the ideals,
but it is the only organization
today that even tries to remind
man that there are more Important

this article to follow For The

other things, its cost! This

Religion is away of life that
requires courage, thought, and
understanding of people, politics,
and science. The basic theme of
all maior religions is to treat
the other person as if he were
yourself. This is a do and dont
idea that simply says if you like
to be treated a certain way, then
treat others that way, and if you
dont like to be treated a certain
way, then dont treat others that
way. Religion requires that one pbt
the other person first and the
number one I" last. Very few
have the courage, understanding,
or will to practice this simple
idea that is religion. Because
people lack the basic courage to
be religious the church which is
made up of these people is in ineffective.
effective. ineffective. This does not mean that
i uugion is wrong.
Taylor says religion is for
cowards, but he is the coward
because he has not put out the
effort to know what religion means
and lacks the understanding to tell
the difference between love and
hate, insight and prejudice, wisdom
and stupidity. He wants us to
believe that because man is
basically a coward any ideal that
says man can rise above cowardli cowardliness
ness cowardliness is only for cowards. Maybe
he doesnt know there is a
difference between courage and
strength, because he says one
cannot be religious and strong.
He wants us to liquidate what
he calls religion because of the
mistakes, narrow mindedness, and
bigotry that have been caused in
its name. If governments liquidated
people for narrow mindedness,
mistakes, and bigotry, then
tomorrow Mr. Taylor would not

Loves of Dobie Gillis, etc.)
THE CURSE OF THE CAMPUS: NO. 2
As was pointed out last week, one would think that with all
the progress we have made in the education game, something
might have been done by now about roommates. But no. The
roommate picture-has not brightened one bit since Ethan
Goodpimple founded the first American college.
(Contrary to popular belief, Harvard was not the first. Mr.
Goodpimple started his institution some 75 years earlier. And
quite an institution it was, let me tell you! Mr. Goodpimple
built schools of liberal arts, fine arts, dentistry, and tanning.
He built a lacrosse stadium that seated 102,000. Everywhere
on campus was emblazoned the stirring Latin motto CAVE
MUSSl Watch out for moose. The student union contained
a bowling alley, a clock, and a 16-chair barber shop.
(It was this last feature the barber shop that, alas,
brought Mr. Goodpimples college to an early end. The student
body, being drawn from the nearby countryside, was composed
chiefly of Pequots and Iroquois who, alas, had no need of a
barber shop. They braid their hair instead of cutting it, and as
for shaving, they dont. The barber, Tremblatt Follicle by name,
grew so depressed staring all the time at 16 empty chairs that
one day his mind finally gave way. Seizing his vibrator, he ran
outside and shook the entire campus till it crumbled to dust.
This later became known as Picketts Charge.)
But I digress. We were discussing ways for you and your
roommate to stop hating each other. This is admittedly diffi difficult
cult difficult but not impossible if you will both bend a bit, givs a little.
I remember, for example, my own college days (Berlitz, 'OBI.
My roommate was, I think you will allow, even less agreeable
than most. He was a Tibetan named Ringading whose native
customs, while indisputably colorful, were not entirely endear endearing.
ing. endearing. Mark you, I didnt mind so much the gong he struck on
the hour or the string of firecrackers he set off on the half-hour.
I didnt even mind his singeing chicken feathers every dusk and
daybreak. What I did mind was that he singed them in mv hat.
To be fair, he was not totally taken with some of mv habits
eitherespecially my hobby of collecting water. I had no jars
at the time and just had to stack the water any-old-where.
Well sir, things grew steadily cooler between Ringading and
me, and they might have gotten actually ugly had we not each
happened to receive a package from home one day. Ringading
opened his package, paused, smiled shyly at me, and offered
me a gift.
Thank you, I said. What is it?
Yak butter, he said. You put it in your hair. In Tibetan
we call it gree see kidstuff.
Well now, thats mighty friendly, I said and offered him a
gift from my package. Now you must have one of mine.
Thank you, he said. What is this called?
Marlboro Cigarettes, I said and held a match for him.
He puffed. Wow! he said. This sure beats chicken feathers!
Or anything else you could name, I said, lighting my own
And as we sat together and enjoyed that fine flavorful
Marlboro tobacco, that pure white Marlboro filter, a glow of
good fellowship came over usa serene conviction that no
quarrels exist between men that will not yield to the warmth of
honest good will. I am proud to sav that Ringading and I re remain
main remain friends to this day, and we exchange cards each Christmas
and each Fourth of July> firecrackers. e * m*

be presented a week from tonight in Florida Gym.
Thats the date of the basketball game between
the coaches from the athletic and physical edu education
cation education departments, called the Mangling Mentors,
and a group of fraternity intramural league all-stars.
Its going to be a lollapalooza to say the smallest.
Dean of Men Frank T. Adams is supposed to be head cheerleader
for somebody or other. Head football coach Ray Graves will play
for the coaches.
A team of sorority girls will tangle (figurative sense, fellas) with
another fraternity all-star team in an exhibition game during the
halftime of the regular game. Theyll play by girls rules.
And if all that isnt enough to lure you from your closet, the pro proceeds
ceeds proceeds from the whole affair go towards buying recreational equipment
for Lake Wauburg.
The tariff is 25 cents cash.
The frat all-star squad will be selected this afternoon from the

Already preparing are assistant football coach Jimmy Dunn, cage

It should be a low scoring affair with alot of holding and blocking.
