Knowledge
Missing Link
In Business
The missing monetary link of
capitalism is the publics
ignorance of investments, a re representative
presentative representative from one of the
countrys leading stock brokerage
firms said yesterday at the
thirteenth annual Business Day
Convention.
Unless people Increase
investments, the country will not
continue its progress, said Paul
Brandenburger,account executive
of Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner
and Smith.
Because of the re-distribution
of income, the millionaire is a
vanishing American," he said.
The typical American family now
earns SB7 per week, and therefore
has more cash savings to invest
in stocks and bonds, he said.
According to Brandenburger,
there are now approximately 17
million stockholders in the United
States, as compared to 8.6 million
in 1956.
It has been estimated by the
joint Committee on National Plan Planning

Arrival Set
For Thursday
The Old Orange Peel is here.
The controversial off-campus
publication will be on sale
Thursday at the Florida Book Store
and at six local businesses in including
cluding including University Drugs, Rebel
Lanes, Shelleys, Alans Cubana,
the Pub and Broasted Chicken.
The new humor magazine was
edited by Jack Horan, who edited
the campus Orange Peel before
its demise last spring.
We feel the Peel demonstrated
by its popularity that it served a
need, said Bob Dixon, 3AS,
Horans partner and business man manager
ager manager of the magazine.
Its rollicking humor and
pointed satire often struck very
close to home, which is probably
part of the reason it was banned,
he said.
Horan promised the Old Peel
would continue this tradition,
taking potshots at whatever the
students would like to see
satirized.
The first edition will sell for
25 cents a copy and contains car cartoons

after falling asleep while studying.
He had been in the back of the

off, and awoke to find he was
alone in the dark empty building.
After calling a friend to ask
advice, he notified the campus

turn on the lights, and stand in
the center of the room until the
night watchman arrived to let him

Florida red scale was once a
severe pest of citrus in Israel.
Ih 1956, colonies of a parasitic
wasp known scientifically as
Aphytisholoxanthus were imported
into Israel from Hong Kong. The
parasites quickly established
themselves and produced
outstanding control of the scale
within two or three years.
Israels results and the recent
widespread reduction of purple
scale in Florida through the use
of parasites led researchers to
believe that the same thing might
be done with red scale.
In 1959, breeding stock of the
parasitic wasp was obtained from
Israel by USDAs Entomology Re Research
search Research Division and sent to the
University of California Citrus
Experiment Station at Riverside
for experimental study. Ar.ange Ar.angements
ments Ar.angements were made at this time by
Dr. D. W. Clancy, Lake Alfred
USDA entomologist,- to obtain the
parasite for colonization in
Florida.
Altogether, 15,420 females were
released from these shipments in
seven Florida orange groves.

Margie Rawlings: A Gift To The UF

By DAVID WEST
Managing Editor
Reprinted from the Gainesville
Daily Sun.
Out past Cross Creek and down
S.R. 325, only a fluorescent orange
mail box flags attention to a
termite-ridden house.
Ten years ago, a rural mail
carrier, stopping and starting in
hop-scotch progress along the
route, could be depended upon to
stop at this same mailbox either
to leave mail or pick up a com completed
pleted completed manuscript for some Yankee
publishing house.
There was nothing to attract a
second glance to the woman sitting
on the porch, busily engaged in
some task.
She was Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings, pecking out stories of
the old fishing camp town on a
tired old portable typewriter.
There was nothing in the
appearance of the rather husky
woman, given to hard talk and
equally hard living, to indicate
the gentle persuasion of her
Pulitzer-prize-winning novel,
The Yearling.
Now she is gone dead for
nearly 10 years. Still the
community has set up no signs
marking her coming and going.
But before she left she set up
a rememberance of her at the
University of Florida.
She gave her house and the
orange groves to the UF in order
that young writers who were
studying English at the University
could go and live in the atmosphere
she loved.
Presently no writer lives in the
house. A member of the Plant and
Grounds Division lives out there
with his wife and family.
University administrators of the
estate say it has been difficult
to get writers to live in the wild wilderness
erness wilderness even though the rent is
free.
Currently the Cross creek pro property
perty property is under the Trusteeship of
the UF Endowment Corporation.
Mrs. Rawlings second husband,
Norton Baskin, maintains and re receives
ceives receives the profits from her
estate. When he dies the rights
and property finances will lie under
the trusteeship of the President
of the UF, the Chairman of the
English Department and the
chairman of the Board of Control.
In the Cross Creek Country
there still lingers an air of dis distaste
taste distaste and appreciation perhaps
even fear -of this gifted writer.
I was scared of Her, Old
Will, a 95-year old Negro, blurts
out.
\ zw i
* M-m

Ml 1
She Gave Her Home to Us

But I miss her almost as
much as I was scared of her.
Writing of the areas aroma
caused many ill feelings and once
an invasion of privacy suit with
damages claimed at SIOO,OOO.
Judge John A. H. Murphree,
who tried the suit in 1946, re remembers
members remembers how an Island Grove
census taker testified how her
reputation had been Injured when
Marjorie Rawlings identified her
as an ageless spinster re resembling
sembling resembling an ageless and efficient
canary.
After being found not guilty in
Gainesville, the decision was
reversed in Tallahassee and the
authoress paid small damages.
And then there was the time
when the writer didn't want to
leave Cross Creek and her
husband, Charles, did. He did, she
didnt. Martha said that her boss
told her she would die if she
ever left the Creek. She died at
Crescent Beach.
But in Miss Margies own
words:
...We are tenants and not po possessors,
ssessors, possessors, lovers and not masters.
Cross Creek belongs to the wind
and the rain, to the sun and all the
seasons, to the cosmic secrecy of
seed, and beyond all, to time.

The Papers Aim: All the news with decency our only limit.

next excuse, please
Student Government at the University of Florida
apparently has made a fairly successful attempt
at pulling the wool over the eyes of about 13,000
students.
The issue is clear: Where are our honor bicycles?
The excuses offered by past and present student
government leaders for no bikes on campus, however,
are plain enough but not very clear.
A serious effort to furnish 100 or so Honor
Bicycles for university students apparently was
first made during the election campaign of past
Student Body Pres. Bruce Bullock. Since then,
student government faithfuls have promised the
students these bikes in successive elections. In
this case, at least, these promises have not paid
off.
This past fall it appeared the students, i. e.,
student government,were finally getting somewhere.
The appointments, however, of Steve Freedman and
Doug Midgley as successive chairmen erf the honor
bike program proved little in tangible results,
except that you can really fool the public for a
long time if you work at it.
Both Midgley and Freedman accomplished this:
parts were bought to recondition the 100-odd bikes,
and the bicycles, tools, etc., were brought to
fraternity houses so the work could be completed.
That was months ago.
Still no bikes.
Midgley, the last chairman of the bike program,
says he doesnt know for sure where the bicycles
are. The immediate past vice president of the
student body has offered excuses including: It
was up to the fraternity houses to make sure the
project was done.
The fact remains: Nobody knows where the bikes
arefor sure. Nobody knows if the parts have
been stolen or sold for sure. Nobody knows if
the project will ever be completedfor sure.
We dont know either, and the answers we get
when we ask about the program are either rude
or nebulous.
We maintain that it is up to student government
and its now non-existent bike chairman to get these
bikes on campus. We also maintain the fraternities
are not finally responsible for the programs success
or failure.
The Alligator, for one, is tired of running
publicity releases from student government
faithfuls, saying, Honor bikes are expected to be
on campus within the next few weeks, according
to. .
We do know that 13, 000 or so students have been
fooled. We also know that $1,200 was appropriated
by Legislative Council for the program, and that
there are 10 or less Honor bikes now on campus.
Its about time, were convinced, that the students
had something besides excuses to show for their
money.

What Happened
To The $1100?

EDITOR:
Granted that prices have risen
in the United States in the past
decade and prices were rising
before that. I do not think that
as a small mass of 13,000 students
we can be of any assistance to
the Washington economists in sta stabilizing
bilizing stabilizing prices. However, it seems
we ought to be able to have some something
thing something to say about where our money
goes and we might be able to do
something about the rising prices
of bicycles on campus.
For some reason, I cant under understand
stand understand how 13,000 college students
can complacently sit back and not
desire to know what happened to
the $l,lOO that was spent blessing
our campus with an honor bike
system. Could it be that there
is so much money that we can
throw it away?
Im not criticizing the idea of
an honor bike system, but to spend
$l,lOO on ten used bicycles is
almost comical. Yes! We know
about the parts and tools that were
purchased student government
must be paying rent on a ware warehouse
house warehouse to store all these surplus
tools and parts.
Now it might be that the facts
and figures presented were wrong

the Alligator or any members of
the staff). But what did happen
Why Suspend
Tom Baxley?
EDITOR:
As a student of the University
and as Gator sports fan, I believe
that all the members of an
organization as big as the UF
deserve at least an explanation
from Norman Sloan, Head
Basketball coach, about the sus suspension
pension suspension of star guard Tom Baxley.
My opinion, which I believe is
the same as that of everyone
else, is that Tom Baxley is a
ture athlete, that always gave 100
per cent effort in every game
that he played this year as a
Gator.
If Mr. Sloan suspended Baxley
from the squad, I believe is only
fair to the students of this
university that respect him as
a coach but who also respect Tom
Baxley as a TRUE player, to
know the reasons for this sus suspension.

The mystery still remains

If anyone has an answer to this

Peruvian Dorm
Not Typical
EDITOR:
On Feb. 26th., there was an
article in the Florida Alligator
which dealt with the World
University Service. Along with it
you ran a picture captioned
University Dorm in Peru. The
picture was by no means repre representative
sentative representative of the type of building
facilities we have in our
universities.
I presume your source of in information
formation information is reliable, but I feel
compelled to point out the following
facts: while it is possible that
such buildings may be used in
the most primitive of Perus
universities, just as a fledgling
junior college in Florida may be
forced to use temporary buildings
during the first few years of its
existence, such a structure as
that pictured is no more repre representative

Despite the fact that because of injuries and ill

the 6-4 195-pound forward has

Baxley Ends Season
As Top Point-Maker

Sophomore guard Tom Baxley,
a United Press International
third-team all Southeastern
Conference choice, didn't play in
the Florida Gators final basket basketball
ball basketball game of the season last Monday
but paced the team in scoring
for the year anyhow.
Baxley, called by many the
hottest player to ever don a Gator
uniform, ended with a!6.2 average
for the year despite a late season
slump.
Head coach Norm Sloan dropped
Baxley from the team before the
last game and gave no reason for
the action.
Behind Baxley In the scoring
column are senior forward Tom
Barbee with a 15-point average
and sophomore guard Brooks
Henderson with a 14.2 average.
Baxley set a new sophomore
scoring record for the Gators with
407 points in 26 games.
High game also belongs to the
ex-University of Maryland eager
when he made 34 against Miami
in the season-opener.
Sophomore Dick Tomlinson was
top rebounder for the year with 176
but Barbee had the best per game
average with 8.6. Tomlinson's
average was 7 a game.
Henderson ranked in the top
foul shooters in the nation and
led Florida with an 83.3
per centage. He made 110 in 132
tries. Next in line were Stokes
with a 78.6 per centage and Baxley
at 78.5.
The pivot man. led the club in
field goal per centages. Bob
Hoffman made 51.6 per cent of
his attempts from the field
and Mont Highley is second with
a 50 per cent mark.
Stokes's trademark long jump
shot put him third with a 47.7
per centage. A junior from Tampa,
Stokes is the only Gator who played
in every game. Baxley and
Tomlinson appeared in all but one
game.
Highley set the single game re rebounding
bounding rebounding mark for the year when
he grabbed off 18 while Florida
was downing Tennessee in
Knoxville 84-73. The effort also
set a Tennessee field house record.
The Gators were outscored by
their 26 opponents 1,975 to 1,943
and were outrebounded 1,100
to 1,093.

Curtain Is Down
For Gator Caaers

Basketball rings down its final curtain for the
fading winter season here this weekend with the
state prep tourney, but for the Florida Gators
the show closed last Monday.
The Gators, plagued with injuries, sickness and
in fitting fashion, leaving a question poised on the
unbelieving lips of every loyal Gator fan.
Whatever happened to the Florida Gators?

We dont know either,

in person in Florida Gym or by
our portable radio listening to
Otis Boggs paint the picture.
It was supposed to be a year
of building. The Gators would be
sophomorish with a smatter of
experience here and there, the
pre-season reports said. They
would be laying the ground work
for the next two years.
But then the season began and
people started wondering. Sopho Sophomore

to all the advance ballyhoo and
showed folks how the game of
basketball should be played.

And, most amazing of all, the
Gators were winning.
They went into the Gator Bowl

4-2 record, including an
impressive decision over Wake

examinations.

Then the monsoons hit, the

cage team on the unpredictable
side most of the time.

Next year should be something
a little different.
Baxley, Henderson, Tomlinson,
Koss, forward Taylor Stokes and
centers Mont Hlghley and Hoffman
should all be bade with some
added scars of experience.
Up from the freshman team
will come Richard Peek 6-11, and
Gary Keller, 6-9, to help with
the rebounds.
Next season is nino months away.
But we kinda wish it would hurry.
