Dentists Okay College
Study Proposed By Board

A plan to establish a dental
school at the UF within the next
five years got the nod from the
Florida State Dental Society
meeting in a three-day workshop
in Jacksonville over the weekend.
The group voted their approval
of a proposed legislative request
from the State Board of Control
which would provide funds to study
establishing the dental school at

Vernon Swartsel. Last year
Rollins College gave sl,loo,Florida
State gave SI,OOO and UF gave
$116.10 for the mutual assistance

The board will seek a $40,000
appropriation to finance an official
study during the next two years
of all problems involved in starting
a UF dental school.
Study results would be presented
to the 1965 Legislature along with
a request for construction funds.
Pres. J. Wayne Reitz has
requested money for the study
of the possibility of a dental school
in the upcoming biennial budget,

UF should be embarrassed,
he said.
The UF is the largest school
in Florida and has more foreign
students than any other Florida
university, yet we lag far behind
in supporting this tremendous
organization, said Swartsel.
There needs to be more commun communication
ication communication of the idea and importance
of WUS on campus. It is a shame
that UF students are not more
aware of its scope and are not
more concerned with supporting
it, he said.
WUS week begins today.

In nations where only the very
elite can afford to go to college,
WUS awards scholarships to
capable students of other classes.
We hope to raise at least SI,OOO

Swartsel. Students may make
contributions through fraternities,
sororities and the service booth
across from the Hub. The booth
will be open Monday, Wednesday
and Friday.

The dental school would be like
a medical school in that it would
not be designed to attract large
numbers of students.
Instead, contributions to the UF
would come from education of
dental students, basic dental re research
search research and post-graduate dental
education, Martin stated.
The state presently has no dental
school. Medical schools are at the
UF and privately-owned University
of Miami.

Off-Campus Housing: A Living Paradox

About 4,000 UF students have traded the captive
security of dormitory life for the debatable ecstasy
of off-campus living accommodations.
New independence, economy, freedom from
authority, privacy, spaciousness, less noise for
study, and a chance to raise hell are some of
the reasons students list for living-off campus.
In some cases, students are forced to live off offcampus
campus offcampus because UF facilities are filled to capacity.
The majority of off-campus housing is clean,
comfortable, well-equipped with modern
conveniences and reasonable within Gainesvilles
rental rates. Most landlords and housing managers
apparently attempt to provide student tenants with
wholesome and adequate rental facilities.
Most of our off-campus offerings provide accept acceptable
able acceptable housing for students, and the majority of
landlords attempt to operate in a business-like
manner within the limits of legal, financial, and
physical necessity, says Off-Campus Housing
Director Carl B. Opp.
The UF owes a great service to private housing
and landlords for providing accommodations over
the years that the UF could not provide, according
to Opp.
However in an operation as vast and complex
as off-campus housing where legal regulation is
almost nil, exceptions to the rule exist.
These exceptions prevail in some of the marginal
and sub standard housing in some off-campus areas.
Students live in this housinghousing apparently
unfit for human habitation.
These dangerous housing areas breed safety and
sanitation hazardsfaulty wiring, exposed garbage,
precarious heating devices, lack of second floor
exits and inadequate fire protective equipment.
Some of these accommodations apparently, never
heard of the term, conveniences. Students
in the inferior dwellings are confronted with a
deficit in heating, furnishings, hot water and closet
space. One apartment had its bedroom in the living
roomtwo mattresses in the middle of the floor.
Bad conditions sometimes exist because of too
many pegs, in too few holes. Students find over overcrowding,
crowding, overcrowding, brought upon by the landlord or themselves
can bring a potpourri of personal problems, as
well as constituting a health hazard.
In most cases, students get the type of
accommodations they pay for.

explore the deplorable state of an off-campus housing facility. This house,
like others, is livable, but in poor shape.

But with the demand exceeding the supply, students
are sometimes forced to take what they can get. A
few unscrupulous landlords realize this, so they
leave their accommodations in need of maintenance
and repair.
These problems may fall into similar areas where
a handful of landlords engage in rent gouging, refuse
leases to tenants, force students to vacate without
adequate prior notice and refuse to return small
Another touchy area in off campus living is
student conduct. This problem runs the gauntlet
from the failure to pay rent to maintaining a
constant disturbance in the neighborhood. One
instance includes two students who mysteriously
disappeared from their apartment owing the land landlord
lord landlord $528 in damages to the premises.
Sometimes misunderstanding develops between
student tenant and landlord because of the
sterotype image. Some students picture the land landlord
lord landlord as a cheating, money-grabbing individual while
the landlord visualizes the student as lazy,
irresponsible and not to be trusted.
Occasionally, the impressions are well-founded
because of the poor management practices by both
parties. Murky business arrangements by shady
landlords are rare, but have happened, putting
students in a financial sling. On the other hand,
students have been known to make a quiet departure
to parts unknow leaving the landlord holding the
Supervision on rental property ranges from too
much to none at all. Many landlords do not live
on the premises, and students with accommodation
problems sometimes have difficulty getting in touch
with those in charge. At the other extreme, the
landlord is available so much that he interferes
with the privacy of his tenant.
It must be emphasized that these problems exist
in only specific situations in off-campus housing.
Most accommodations are above-par in quality and
comfort and provide adequate housing for students.
But the specifics are a serious enough problem
to rate an investigation by the Alachua County Health
Department and the UF Off-Campus Housing Office
this trimester to determine the current needs and
problems of off-campus housing accommodations.

on trial

(EDITORS NOTE....The following editorial, en entitled
titled entitled Trimester On Trial, is reprinted from
the Thursday, Feb. 21 St. Petersburg Times.)
When Floridas four state universities switched
over last fall to year-round operations under the
trimester system, nobody expected the transition
to be simple.
Too many students and teachers were affected,
too many habits and courses and procedures had
to be adjusted, to make the change merely a mat matter
ter matter of routine.
But as Times education writer Bette Orsini
observed in her full-page report on this subject
last Sunday, the wonder is that things have gone
as smoothly as they have.
- t
Many students and professors are troubled, of
course. But few oppose the idea of year-round
operation of our universities, or of tougher de demands
mands demands on our students. Where there are criti criticisms,
cisms, criticisms, they seem to be mostly about details.
For example, it was inevitable that no one could
say at the outset how heavy a course load a stu student
dent student could carry in shorter semesters; or how much
time professors would have for independent study
or research.
The traditional system of two semesters per
school yearplus summer school for those vho
are in a hurry or who need to repeat courses courseshas
has courseshas meant four years of college for most students.
Under the trimester system, however, a student
who goes full-time (thus getting only a four-week
summer vacation)could condense the requisite eight
semesters into two and two-thirds years.
Thats a radical change in the pattern of higher
education. Not even one years experience, obvi obviously,
ously, obviously, can prove whether were on the right track
or not. But this kind of compression, of stiffer
demands on the college student, is entirely con consistent
sistent consistent with the educational revolution which is
sweeping the entire United States.
Were getting tougher because we have to. Col College
lege College applications and admissions are skyrocketing
and theres no ceiling in sight. The leisurely
days of old, in which we could afford to let students
set their own pace, and in which we could afford
to let college plants sit idle during precious months
are gone.
ONE PERIL, as Mrs. Orsini quoted a college
student, may be a system heared to IBM and
dehumanization. But it may just as likely be a
growing realization already a characteristic of
the post-war and post-Sputnik years that col college
lege college is a serious business; that a student can
get out of it what he is willing to put in.
The trimester system may not be tbie perfect
answer. Perhaps in our constant searching we
will one day find something better. But above
all, our greatest strength lies in this very dis discontent.

We have no excuses though.
We just got beat. We werent
carrying our full team there, but
that fact alone does not mean that
if they had been there we would
have won, although we might have
kept the score down.
Actually the score does not
indicate the kind of game that was
played. The halftime score was
only 3-2. The last 10-15 minutes
of that first half we did all right.
We had a score by Manuel
Wills and Willie Lagos and we
really moved the ball around. We
got some good shots, but like Isay
they were great defensively.
We only had one regular half halfback
back halfback who started and one of the
halfbacks, Jim Walker, played his
first full game. He did a real
good job, too.
