besides working with the rhythm,

exercise," she added.

The editorial Trimester On Trial, reprinted

said concerning the new system.

Soph Charts New Moral Code

The principle problem of sexual
behavior is not a question of
whether premarital intercourse
will lead to a family or an excess
of sensual pleasure. The problem
is one of moral legitimacy, or a
negation of morality.
Our moral code, concerning sex,
teaches us that sexual experience
should be cultivated after marriage

Feds Need Greater Latitude
To Exercise More Leadership

In reference to Lex Taylor Jr.s
letter printed in the February 18
Issue of the ALLIGATOR, con concerning
cerning concerning the officials of state doing
what the public desires:
The basic fallacy of our
democratic system is that the
official trys to please the public
instead of lead it. Unfortunately
a leader is prohibited from a
position of authority by virtue
of the publics thinking themselves
too wise to be in need of a leader.

studied and passed by Student
Government. He did not show
enough interest in the Council
(Legislative) to attend any more
than four out of seven meetings
or to call a single meeting of the
Council committee he was chair chairman
man chairman of. If Jim shows as much
interest in the post of Secretary
of Finance as he did on the Council
before he was expelled by said
Council from that Council, the
effectiveness of Student Govern Government
ment Government will be seriously hampered.
I say this because that post is
the most important cabinet post,
in that it handles solely $26,000
and in cooperation with budget and
finance, $500,000, indirectly.
When my committee studied the
salaries of Student Government
officials, we felt that this post

therefore different from the
established norms. From this point
of view, a devolution, simply
because it is a change, cannot be
judged as good or bad", but in
a given historical situation, a
revolution may be legitimate,
necessary and useful.
A revolution must never be
confused with a COUP DETAT
or with the uprising of a mob.
For one thing, the essence of a
genuine revolution is a prescribed
program which has been divulged
to the people and which has met
with the unequivocal acceptance
of the people. With this premise,
we see that if a revolution dis disassociates
associates disassociates itself with the program
it has promised to promote it
looses all legitimacy.
An analysis of the TRUE Cuban
Revolution denotes that its genesis
was formulated at a time in the
19th century, when Cubans first
acquired a national conscience.
This seed of liberty and democracy
was originally infused into the
masses by Father Felix Varela Varelathe
the Varelathe first of the great" and
was nurtured by the servant desires
and indomitable spirit of patriots
whose only desire was the de destruction
struction destruction of the Spanish imperialist
yoke. Since that time, the TRUE
Cuban Revolution has been
orientated towards national
liberty, cultural progress,
economic stability and political
freedom. These goals were the
minimum program of thefounders
of the Republic and ones which
paved the way for the ideals of
future generations.
The struggle against Batista is
history, but it is necessary to
point out that it was a battle against
a malignant dictatorship whose
only desire was the enrichment
of a few at the expense of the
Cuban people. Fidel Castro was
the symbol of freedom for the
Cuban people, but he too betrayed
the desires and ambitions of the
Cuban populous.
When Castro embraced the
Russian Bear, he placed the Cuban
Revolution in the claws of a
socio-economic system which is

concerned if Tommy takes the last week off.

... is what Ronnie Hauch (top), lUC, seems to be
asking wrestling instructor Joe Edmisten during a recent
practice session.
I From The Sidelines == r
Wrestling Team
Being Formed
Sports Editor
UF will have an active wrestling club if Joe
Edmisten has anything to say about it.
And he does.
Edmisten, 7 AG, is presently going about
developing a wrestling team to represent the
University in the Jacksonville YMCA Open. Wrestling Tournament,
slated for March 9 in the Gateway City 70 miles from here.
I want to make one last effort to revive wrestling here at Florida
before I graduate, Edmisten said.
And from the size of his forearms, if anybody can do it, he's
just the man.
On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons between 4 and 6
oclock on the Florida Gym floor, Edmisten and his pupils hold
forth, going over the finer points of wrestling and preparing for
the Jacksonville tourney.
But we need more boys out, Edmisten said. We welcome
anyone with or without experience.
Then he said he could teach anyone to wrestle, and coming fom
him it sounded more like a statement of fact than a boast.
Ive taught it for 15 years and a few years back the team I was
coaching sent two blind boys to the national tournament. One finished
Edmisten has also taught a one-legged boy to manhandle opponents.
No body type has an advantage in wrestling either, he said.
The skinny guys have certain leverage advantages too. Its the
one sport that anyone can learn.
Collegiate rules, under which the YMCA tourney will be conducted,
are somewhat different then the Great MalenkoGorgeous George
variety, we learned.
Combatants go at it for three 2-minute periods and points are
awarded for different holds, falls and escapes. An escape is counted
when you can slip out of an opponents hold.
Weight classes start at 115-pounds and go all the way up to 191-
pounds, with a classification every seven or ten pounds in between.
Then theres the unlimited class. This, we gathered without being
told, is not the one for beginners.
Edmisten said he will probably go in the 191-pound class even
though he weighs in at only 175-pounds.
Ive done that in the last three meets Ive wrestled in to help
counterbalance my experience, he said.
To boil it down, if you know a lot about wrestling, know a little,
or dont know a mat from a half-nelson, and have a sincere desire
to learn, this is the man to see. Drop by the gym this afternoon
if you are interested.
He knows his stuff and hes willing to teach anybody who wants
to learn. This is something rather unusual for the good old UF.
Gator Baits
