Os Insect-Munchers

Insects commonly feed on their
leafy neighbors but some blood
thirsty plants fight back.
Youve probably heard of insect
eating plants, but what you may
not know 1s that some 20 different
species of these insectivorous

pinelands and marshes.
According to Dr. Daniel Ward,
assistant professor and botanist
with the University of Florida
Agricultural Experiment Stations,
our sundews, pitcher-plants,
butterworts and bladderworts are
all insect-eaters. Each has its own
particular way of consuming insect
To a passing camper no plant

a tiny sundew. This plant is a
rosette of greenish-red leaves,
each gleaming with drops of dewy
liquid. Often the plant is topped
with a white blossom. A fly,
attracted by the glossy dew,alights
on a leaf only to find that the
clear drops are more sticky than
glue. The pretty reddish hairs act
as tentacles, slowly closing in on
their helpless victim.
As they syrround the prey, the
leaf curls lhward and a digestive
juice pours out that dlsolves the
insect. Chemical analysis proves
this digestive juice corresponds

very closely to the gastric juice
in the human stomach.
Another plant with an interesting
way of capturing its insect dinner
is the pitcher-plant. The most
common species in Florida is the
spotted pitcher-plant.
The pitcher-plant sports long
hollow leaves wherein it traps
unwary insect trespassers. The
spotted pitcher-plant has a small
hood that covers the open end of
its hollow leaf. The back of the
hood is dotted with translucent
spots from which the plant derives
its name.
These spots have a special
function. When an insect enters the
leaf, attracted by the alluring fra fragrance

he finds himself in a dark cavern.
It is lighted only by the clear
spotted windows. And like a bee
trapped in an automobile that beats
against the windows trying to
escape, the insect flies frantically
at the clear spots on the back
of the hood. At length he sinks
with exhaustion to the bottom of
the hollow leaf.
But the windows are only an
alternate means of capturing prey.
The pitcher -plant is lined with
stiff down-pointed hairs.
Descending into the leaf is easy,
but return is impossible.

Insectivorous butterworts
blossom in bright purple and
yellow. The blossoms of the butter
wort are pretty but the leaves
are treacherous. They are covered
with a secretion that glues down
any small insect that touches them.
The leaves also have a slight
power of movement and when an
insect is caught near the edge
of the leaf, the margin rolls inward
and covers the insect or pushes
it toward the center. As soon as
an insect is caught, a secretion of
a very different nature is poured
out. It dissolves the captive insect.
Bladderworts are water pirates,
snaring their victims in tiny
lobster-pot like traps beneath the
water surface. They also sport
attractive above-water blossoms
of purple and yellow. The tiny
traps grow from the bladder wort
leaves. Each trap has a single
opening a one way valve. A
tiny water creature has little
difficulty getting in but finds
crawling out impossible.
There are several speculations
as to why there are so many
insectivorous plants in Florida.
Several specialists have suggested
that it is related to the lack of
nitrogen in many Florida soils.

Pressure Hits Hard
On College Campuses

Universities are becoming
centers of intense emotional
stress and pressure, according
to John D. Black, director of
Stanford Universitys Counseling
and Testing Center.
To quit school or to flunk out
are no longer reasonable options.
They are unacceptable as a
dishonorable discharge from the
service or a felony conviction.
The result can only be more intense
self-serving competition and more
temptation to succeed by hook
or crook, says Black, who is
also an associate professor of

Otto to Stand Guard
At Engineers Fair

Staff Writer
Otto, the robot, will come out
of hiding to help open the 18th
annual Florida Engineers Fair
March 8, 9 and 10.
The UF Engineering Fair is a
combination of student-designed
and demonstrated exhibits,
research projects and exhibits of
state and national industries.
Last years fair was attended
by 25,000. A stepped-up publicity publicityprogram
program publicityprogram has been put into effect
this year and a much larger crowd
is expected.
According to Fair chairman
Harry A. Ferran, 4EG, the event
hopes to top last years
attendance by 50 per cent.
We dont have a theme this
year, Ferran said.
A specific theme is too
restricting, and we want to show
the public what the various fields
of engineering will contribute to
the 19605.
The fairs purpose is to entertain
the general public, showthemwhat
happens at the College of
Engineering and to focus the
attention of high school students
on the opportunities of an
engineering career.
Science departments of 150
Florida high schools have been
contacted, Ferran said. We have
urged them to plan now for a
school-sponsored trip here.

Cumpulsory ROTC Inefficient

There is no indication the UF
will make it (ROTC) voluntary
unless the Federal Government
says *put it on a voluntary basis.
If it is left up to the University,
it will remain as it is.
These were the words of Dean
of Student Affairs Lister Hale
as he spoke to the Freshman
. . conservative
Council Monday night. If this is
indeed a statement of UF
intentions, then someone is making
a mistake, and a big one at that.
Compulsory ROTC, as it now
operates, has not been successful.
It has not met the goals that were
set up for it.
ROTC is supposed to fill the
manpower gap between the number
of officers the Armed Services
needs and the number the Military
Academies can supply. In addition,
ROTC is supposed to supply the
leaders of Americas vast military
reserve. It has not been doing
this satisfactorily.
Last year Air Force ROTC filled
only 3,400 vacancies; whereas,
5,500 officers were needed. In
the future the demand is expected
to rise above 7,000 officers
In addition to not meeting its
goals, compulsory ROTC is
pouring huge sums of money down
the drain each year while trying
to recruit a few extra candidates
for advanced from the ranks of
lower division college students.
The Officer Education Program
(OEP) has been proposed as an
answer to the waste of funds and
the inefficiency of the current

the lives of hundreds of millions
of people.
If we are not to have untold
suffering all around us, we must
limit the social and economic
freedom of action of all men.
When population density was much
less, man could do almost
anything he pleased without
disturbing his neighbors. Any
resident of the dorms or flavets
knows how that has changed. Man
has had to learn to live in company.
To avoid chaos, freedom must be
tempered with responsibility to
ones fellow man.
While freedom of action has been
gradually limited by laws, freedom
of thought and expression have
grown. The vast increase of

program. OEP, if it passes through
the legislature will eliminate
compulsory ROTC. More
importantly though, it will boost
the quality of instruction that is
given to each cadet.
From the students standpoint,
OEP has many more goodies
to offer; drill would be eliminated,
each year 2,800 cadets would be
given $l,lOO scholarships, other
enrollees would receive SSO
monthly to help allay educational
costs, and perhaps most
importantly cadets would only
attend military classes for two
years as opposed to the current
OEP with its above advantages
would graduate a far greater per percentage
centage percentage of enrollees and better
yet, it would graduate a larger
number of officers because of the
highly desirable fringe benefits
that go arm-in-arm with it.
Compulsory ROTC breeds dis discontent
content discontent and resentment among the
students. This is no wonder when
one considers the amount of time
that a student must spend on it
each week and the small amount
of credit that is received for
this labor.
Naturally, all is not bad about
compulsory ROTC. Its advocates
point out that it instills leadership
qualities in the cadets. They also
point out that the knowledge of

Unfortunately though, the choice
of columnist representing the
liberal viewpoint was a serious
mistake. I must not be misunder misunderstood,

deplore any attempt to limit the

However, when a writer uses
his column under the guise of
liberalism for the purpose of
expounding his religious

stepping on the sensitive toes of
many colleagues, then the purpose
for which the column was intended
is defeated.
Religious prejudices when

all good intention, were willing
to follow the liberal viewpoint.
Why doesnt Mr. Taylor reveal

At least Mr. George L. Rockwell

Gator Hopes Set Back
As Flu Hits Tomlinson

Floridas bruised and flu-ridden cagers were
dealt another blow when Richard Tomlinson,
sophomore forward, was admitted to the university
infirmary yesterday with a case of influenza.

Tomlinsons loss came as the
Gators appeared to be getting back
on their feet after several cases
of flu and mononucleosis had hit
key players on the squad. It is
not known whether Toml in son will
be able to play Saturday night
against Mississippi State.

heavily bandaged he showed no
signs of limping and appeared to

Despite the continued outbreaks

Norman Sloan was optimistic about
the team. With Henderson back

Theyre growing the new cars much bigger

UF Camera Can
Watch Seminoles

When the UF swim team paddles to Tallahassee
to go against Florida State this weekend, they will
be armed with a movie camera to record any
hanky-panky that might happen during the grudge
Florida swim coach Bill Harlan, who is the last
man In the world to cry sour apples and claim that anything but the
best in judging goes on at the FSU meets in Tallhassee, is taking
along WUFT, Channel 5 educational television.
And frankly, as a Gator fan who wont be able to make it to Tally
Saturday night, we're glad they're going.
"They asked us if they could go," says Harlan innocently, "and
of course we said yes. Its to record the meet on film to show to
Gator fans back here."
But after what happened, or should we say APPEARED to happen,
at last years meet, it might be good to have the thing on film.
Florida had an All-America diver Steve Mcride, and the top toprated
rated toprated sophomore diver in the nation last year Lansing Price but
somehow or other Seminole divers finished first and second. Flori Florida
da Florida State went on to win the meet.
A week later at the Georgia A.A.U. meet before impartial judges,
Mcride and Price took the two top spots easily. They won again
when the two teams swam here in Florida Pool later in the season.
Os course, no one, least of all us, would ever, ever, EVER accuse
anyone of hanky-panky, least of all Tallahassee U. folks.
But it IS nice that WUFT and its camera can make the trip, isnt
