Election to Affect
Student Housing

Staff Writer
Substandard housing due to lack
of minimum housing codes in
Gainesville is one of the campaign
issues in the March 19 city election
which touches the lives of many UF
UF Student Housing Director
Harold Riker said 589 students
on campus are in need of better
living quarters. Lack of closer,
adequate accommodations he
said, are causing 132 students to
commute unreasonable distances
--often from outside the county.
A total of 680 on and off campus
are inadequately housed, he
We are always interested in
how our students are housed, and
work toward providing better
accommodations both on and off
campus, Riker said.
The federal government, through
the Community Facilities
Administration, has approved a
laon to build 208 additional housing
units for UF students families,
Riker said.
The problem of deteriorated
housing off campus remains.
Figures taken from the 1950 city
census show that 1,045, or 15 per
cent of all housing units in Gaines Gainesville
ville Gainesville were substandard, according
to Off-Campus Housing Director,
Carl Opp.
The 1960 census showed an
increase in ten years to 1,847,
or 25 per cent of substandard
housingand this in spite of 603
dwellings have been torn down, with
three per cent not occupied, Opp
These figures were based on

the same number of buildings
standing in 1950 and did not include
buildings erected after that date.
According to Opp, *hen his office
discovers living quarters not up to
par, these are taken off the housing
list and not recommended to
But some students need
accomodations so badly they go
out and rent substandard units on
their own, Opp said.
The furor to do something about
the reputation Gainesville was
acquiring for being one of the worst
slum cities of its size in the country
caused the League of Women
Voters to make a study of the
problem in 1954.
The League brought in Fulmer
Associates, outside consultants, to
advise the city on zoning and
As a result, the Citizens Housing
Association of Gainesville was
organized to study the problem and
work for legislation.
The city adopted the Southern
Standard Building Code in 1957,
but this applies only to new
construction, Opp said, who is
secretary of the Citizens Housing
We also got a Dangerous
Buildings Ordinance passed in
1958, but it is neither adequate
nor specific enough to be
effective, Opp said.
Were trying to get a housing
authority 6r commission but
havent gotten either one.
Opp said a modern housing
ordinance would provide for proper
upkeep of structures and prevent
"Both the landlord and tenant
would be protected under a housing
ordinance, Opp said.
In 1957 the city applied for
Federal Housing Administration
(FHA), section 221 housing
for people removed by government
action from deteriorated units.
The city had to certify a workable
program which included:
(1) adequate financial re resources;
sources; resources; (2) available utilities; (3)
stable city government; (4) modern
zoning ordinance; (5) modern
building codes; (6) plumbing and
electrical codes; (7) a citizens
group working on the housing
problem; and (8) a housing
The city said theyd pass a
housing ordinance by 1959, but
they didnt. Demolition had to be
stopped because there was noplace
for people to go, Opp said.
Not until a private developer
came to town to work with the
lower economic groups were any
new housing units built to replace
the old ones.
This developer is Philip Emmer
who has worked with clients to
help them qualify for federal loans
to purchase homes in Lincoln
Estates subdivision, according to
Opp said a housing ordinance is
still being studied but whether one
will be passed that wont be watered
down or unenforceable will depend
on who is elected to future City
lve heard statements made
such as, lm not going to get
on my bicycle and tell my neighbor
how to run his property, Opp
Ive also heard the
self- fulfilling prophecy that
these people are pqor and
uneducated; if I furnish them with
modern plumbing they wont use it
so why give them plumbing, or
*l'm good to them. I give them
clothes and peanutsisnt that
enough, Opp said.
According to opp there are
counter-arguments such £s Susie
Jones is on welfare that so
substandard it keeps her on
Many people are hard-working
but the cost of living is so great
it unbalances their meager budget
and keeps them in bad health,
Opp said.

IHP Seeking
To Improve
UF Relations
Staff Writer
Overcoming the problems
foreign students face when first
coming to America is the goal
of the International Host Program
(IHP) currently looking for
hosts for the summer and fall
When a foreign student first
comes to the UF, he must deal
with strangers who speak a
different language and practice
different customs.
To help the student learn what
to do and not to do, a host is
assigned to him by the IHP. The
host, who usually rooms with the
foreigner, introduces -him to
friends and helps him to learn
his way around campus.
The IHP, sponsored by Florida
Blue Key and Mortar Board,
interviews each candidate. The
interviewers look for maturity,
tact, adaptability, interest and
certain Intangibles that make a
good host. Candidates who are
accepted may request a student
of a certain country or ethnic
To prepare lor being a nost,
the student must read the sponsors
handbook and the booklet, The
Voice of Experience. This material
tells the host what to do and not
to do in dealing with his charge.
A training session is also provided
for those who are already hosts.
The host is expected to write his
charge prior to their first meeting
The IHP began under the
leadership of the Trianon,
now Mortar Board, when a member
of the Trianon was assigned as
a big sister to each of the
female foreign students. In 1960,
FBK began orienting the male
foreign students, joining the
Mortar Board in creating the IHP.
There are presently about 430
foreign students on campus.

The Papers Aim: All the new u/th decenr, our on!: limit.
The states supporters for higher education have
been demanding more and more in the way of money
for college improvements deemed necessary by
them. Up until now the stock answer to this quest
for additional revenue has been that the tax dollars
arent available /in amounts large enough to go
around. Perhaps now though, if a total across acrossthe-board
the-board acrossthe-board three percent sales tax can be brought
to life, the money-starved colleges can feast, if
not to their hearts content, at least better than
in the past.
More than $85,808,000 has been requested by
Floridas Space Era Education Study (SEES) for
state university expansion between now and 1971.
This figure comes from a report which will be
released during TJie Third Governors Conference
on Higher Eduction scheduled to start in Talla Tallahassee
hassee Tallahassee on March 11.
Whats really shocking about this $85.8 million
figure is that it provides only for the construction
of addition institutions during the next eight years.
It provides no request for funds to cover operational
expenses and normal expansion costs.
Who is to supply this tremendous sum? The state
taxpayers of course. But (and its a big but),
already many dollars have been trimmed from the
Board of Controls budget for the next year which,
vhen compared to the SEES recommendation, is
modest indeed.
However, a partial answer may lie around the
proverbial corner, providing the State Legislature
can be motivated into adopting an across-the-board
3% sales tax.
The results of such a plan are startling. Simply
put, the across-the-board extension would pour into
the state treasury $368 million as compared to the
$181.7 that is currently collected.
Desirable as this sales tax may seem to the
money-starved educational system, such a move can
be expected to have much opposition heaped in its
path. Already The League of Women Voters has
launched a campaign to stifle any plan which will
levy taxes on medicines and groceries now tax-free.
We can well understand the position of these
women who, for the most part, are housewives.
During the past few years, the housewife has
repeatedly .been caught in the squeeze formed by
the rising cost of food. But also, is it not these
same housewives who form committees to study
why Johnny and Suzy dont have all the educational
conveniences listed by Nason and the other experts?
The across-the-board 3% tax, though the fastest
way to raise the mostest, is not the only way in
which the taxes could be upped to benefit both the
colleges and other state agencies.
The legislative committee that gave the tax report
from which the above figure is taken also gave
figures on various other ways in which taxes might
be raised. For example, extension of the 3% tax
to groceries would net the government an additional
$46 million while extension to drugs and medicines
w>uld provide some $5.4 million extra.
Other areas where taxes could be extended
include: gasoline, radio and TV advertising, motor
vehicles, industrial machinery, and utilities.
We feel that such action would give the educational
system a very much needed shot-in-the-arm in
addition to allowing the state to better prepare
itself for the vast influx of people and industry that
can be expected as the Space Age really starts

In his column of Monday, March
4, Bill Curry has recognized the
existence of one of the basic
problems which I feel is plaguing
the Alligator, and perhaps UF
student publications in general. I
refer to his statement that, Just

are a small minority compared
with overloadings where the
students talk the counselor into
an unrealistic program. What leads
students into too heavy a schedule?
Frequently it is false optimism,
stimulated by a sense of
disappointment and guilt at
current low grades. This kind of
thinking frequently takes certain
patterns. Lets look at some of
these fallacies, the way students
themselves put them:
DIFFERENT. We might call this
the new leaf fallacy. Students
frequently improve from one term
to the next. Sometimes, but rarely,
they improve radically. Still, the

once they reach their major
courses then life will be beautiful.
Many students do improve. Few,
so much as they expect.

PROBLEMS. When a student talks
like this to his counselor he
is usually trying to persuade
himself. It is probably perfectly
true. The issue is, simply, it
relevant? This is a difficult one
to evaluate, but very important.
ONE MORE TIME. Sometimes
students in the wrong field are
embarassed to change. Sometimes
they feel that if they want to do
well badly enough they must
succeed. It is hard to persuade
these students that they may be
defeating themselves. The just
one more time fallacy is one the
student must discover for himself,
unless he has reached the
suspension stage.
Each of these fallacies is
paralleled by a similar line of
reliable thinking. What makes one
line unreliable, the other satis satisfactory?
factory? satisfactory? We don't know. The
best signs to the counselor, though,
are: (1) specific short-range
planning; (2) general long-range
planning; (3) moderate
expectations as to change or
reform; (4) flexibility; and (5)
personal maturity.
If you find any of the above
rationalizations in your planning
for next term, pause for a moment
and check the last five points.
If you find it difficult to judge,

sophomore slip in a letter ad advocating

And therein lies the problem
which I mentioned at the beginning:
As long as we speak in nice broad
generalizations or in the
acceptable side of specifics, all
is well; but let a solid example
of the very thing which many, if
not most, of us object to show
itself in print, and the Big Boys
come up with contrary to the
best interests of the university.
(This, incidentally, is not intended
as a condemnation of President
Reitzs action, for it may well
be that from the Administrations
viewpoint the letter was not in the
best interests of the university;
there are always Big Daddies who
are bigger than the Big Boys,
you know.)
The following day the Alligator
ran a special editorial to clarify
its position in the matter and to
justify its publishing the letter lettergreat!

the Alligators reasoning. But the
very fact that it had to re-state

I speak of, and which I feel Mr.

might argue but rather in the

(and of the Alligator for the past
year), I would change that to read,
--'--in the University attitudes

In closing, I would add one thing
which I feel is significant, and
which the Alligator has neglected
to bring out in all of the times
it, has quoted the Daily in
editorials or mentioned it in other
columns. The Michigan Daily is
nationally recognized as one of the
topif not THE topcollege
newspaper in existence; or to put
it another way, the Daily is a real
newspaper while the Alligator is
just a student newspaper.
On its front page, immediately
above the dateline, there appears
in bold, black letters Seventy-

I would venture that it will be
somewhat more than seventy-two
years before The Florida Alligator
can make such a claim.

Messrs. Grubbs and Currie base
their literary gems upon the
invalid assumption that the 14th
Amendment supersedes and over overrides
rides overrides the 10th. This is invalid
because the 14th Amendment is
not and has never been a valid
It is invalid or at least competent

Rather had Messrs. Grubbs and
Currie cared to investigate, they
would have found that the 14th
Amendment was passed in 1868
under the following conditions:
1. The Southern States ratified
the 13th Amendment abolishing
slavery and this action was
accepted as valid by
2. The same Southern Legis Legislatures

picked Plains because it would save
the school money and that the
University was dissatisfied with
past student-edited directories.
Heres where the trouble comes
in. Many local merchants spent
freely on advertising, believing
the Directory to be a student
publication. Other merchants
spent their entire budgets set aside
for student publications. Alligator
as salesmen often hear from
merchants, Im sorry, but Ive
spent my budget (often $300) in your
student directory.
Judging from advertising rates
quoted me, Plains sold over
$15,000 in Directory advertising
to local merchants.
The 62 -63 Faculty-Staff
-Student Telephone Director has
failed because:
1. Directory does not give
campus address (good for
sucker lists Bad for
dates). It gives mailing
2. Directory contains very
few student phone numbers.
3. Directory costs Student
Publications many dollars

Worse than this, however, is the
effect upon graduation. I have
been looking forward to this day
for a long time. I feel that this
is an important and momentous
day in the life of a college graduate,
and only once in a lifetime does
one have an opportunity to graduate
from college.
Such action as this discourages
graduation attendance by married
students living in the villages. We
have paid the SIO.OO fee for
graduation, and I feel that we should
have every opportunity to attend
this commencement.
When I called the Housing Office
to present my views, and asked
if one could petition to stay on
for graduation, I was reminded
that attendance of the graduation
exercise was not compulsory. I
get the feeling that when one is no
longer of monetary value to the
University, then the University
is no longer concerned with one.
I have written both Pres. Reitz,
and Gov Bryant, concerning this
situation, and protested it to them.
I ask each of you who also feel
as I do about this situation, to also
write them and let them know it.
It may not do us any good, but it
may help students in the future

latures Legislatures refused to ratify the

Congress which accepted their
action as legal in the case of
the 13th declared that these
Southern states were outside

were sent to create new legis legislatures
latures legislatures which were coerced, at
gunpoint so to speak, to ratify
the amendment.
The Supreme Court has declined
to judge whether under such
coercive action the 14th is valid.
Indeed, the Court cannot so judge
for it is behind this illegal action
that the Court has hidden.
In October 1868, the State of
Oregon, which had earlier ratified
the 14th Amendment, passed a
resolution rescinding its action and
in doing so, it declared that rati ratifications

students. We dont mean to start
a love thy students campaign,
but six smackers, we feel, is a
little steep for University students
to pay. Why not just one admission
a day, instead of three?
If anyone agrees or disagrees,
make yourselves known. The wheel
that squeaks the loudest. .
