to inform the American public
what featherbedding is and how
it cost the public billions of dollars
in extra transportation costs.
Up to that time most Americans
had never heard the word feather featherbedding,

often tells them they need a
haircut or tells them to put a
shirt on. More than once she has
advised a boy on flowers for his
girl or told him how to advise
his girl to dress for an occasion.

the money angle
Confusion reigns as the Honor Bike melee storms
onward toward an ultimate conclusion.
Much has been said concerning the possible
misuse of UF student funds, etc. According to
new Secretary of Finance Jim Crabtree, who since
being named to the post by Pres. Paul Hendrick
has initiated and carried out an exhaustive study
of the financial side of the Honor Bike fracas,
the facts and figures are:
A total of $1215 was appropriated for the project.
Where did this money go? Thats the big
question. . .one which still has not been completely
solved. However, some of the rays of light are
beginning to show through an otherwise cloudy
According to Crabtrees study, $1133.10 worth
of equipment, tools and parts were purchased in
the late fall from Sears and Roebuck and from
From this total, $392.08 worth of equipment is
now not located in the central storage room in the'
UF police station.
Breaking down this $392.08 figure, we find that
$229,97 worth of equipment has been accounted
for (i.e. is either in the process of being used in
the program or has been returned to storage.),
Thus, a figure of $162.11 worth of equipment, parts
and tools is left unaccounted for $38.11 of which
has been delivered to the KAs, TEPs and SAEs.
This $38.11 worth of equipment is yet unaccounted
for, but it is still possible that some or all of it
may turn up at a later date, according to Crabtree.
This leaves $124 worth of tools and equipment
completely unaccounted for. Presumably, this amount
simply vanished into thin air. Where did it
go? Doug Midgley, ex-Honor Bike Chairman who took
the reins of chairmanship of the project upon the
resignation of Steve Freedman- in November, said
that UF police did not guarantee protection for the
tools, parts and equipment.
In other words, though stored in the presumably
safe confines of UF police station, the parts, tools
and equipment were actually, it seems, unsafe
from being pilfered by anyone wishing to pose as
an official obtaining honor bike equipment for
According to a recent inventory, most of the
tools are missing from the police station and some
$26 worth of tires are missing.
The facts are: at least $124 and possibly as much
as $162 of the Special Projects monies is missing
- Furtnermore, no one seems to know who took
these parts, their present whereabouts or the
possibility of recovery. According to Crabtree SG
may simply be forced to write off the loss of
the $124, or whatever the final figure may be.
We can draw several general conclusiqps from
the above facts and statements. One is that the
Honor Bike Program has, in at least some facets,
proven to be unsatisfactory and monetarily
The question next posed is that of whom is
responsible for this $124 deficit? The answer
is not simple. Perhaps one person should be
shackled with the majority of the blame in the
apparent loss of $124. We simply do not know, and
the issues remain so clouded under veils of self selfimposed
imposed selfimposed secrecy that it is doubtful that we will
ever know the full truth. On someones shoulders
rests the responsibility of supplying adequate
check-out system to insure the correct disposal
of parts. Ultimately, this blame must rest with
the chairmenprobably both of them. Perhaps bU
should also be responsible for not following up
with adequate support of the project, or for
biting off more than they could chew. The entire
project seems a fine example of the art of

Hemisphere In Action
Venezuela: A Testing Ground
The Communists are waging a
battle to the death in Venezuela.
In establishing open guerrilla
warfare and promoting terriorism
on an unbelievable scale, the
Caribbean Comintern has begun a
campaign whose ultimate goal is
the destruction of democratic
institutions in this country by
promoting chaos and insecurity
for the Venezuelan people.
Since the total strategy employed
in Venezuela by Soviet imperialism
has as its maximum objective the
overthrow of President Betancourt
the conquest of Venezuela'is
following in the same line of
subversive tactics which brought
Fidel Castro Ruz into power.
Furthermore, it is surprising how
expect to meet even the friend of
a friend of a friend.
The purpose of the International
Host Program, jointly sponsored
by Mortarboard and Florida Blue
Key, is to provide a friend for a
foreign student in the person of
an American Host.
This program has been success successful
ful successful in the past, and should continue
to be a thriving part of UF life.
The average American can do no
more for his country than present
a friendly face and hand to a
citizen of another country.
Applications for this program
are now available and interviews
will continue throughout March.
Being a participant in the Host
program does not involve rooming
with a foreign student, as was
erroneously stated in an article
in Monday's Alligator.
Being a foreign students host
does involve a giving of oneself,
ones time, and ones patience.
Perhaps you, the typical
American, will never know what
it is like to go to a place where
you know no one. But, if you do,
perhaps you too will find a host
who is willing to help you adjust
to a strange land, a strange
language and strange customs.

Eric Clarke, 6EG
closely and with what exactitude
the Communist Party of Venezuela
has followed the so-called "cuban
school" in its play for creating
another Marxist-Leninist state
within the hemisphere. The tactics
employed include kidnappings,
bombings, the creation of a
clandestine army of national
liberation, assassination of all
law-enforcing officers, an alliance
with politically misguided groups
which the party cynically calls
"useful idiots," and, finally,
piracy on the high seas.
The proposition now advocated
by the Party is to coerce the
government and its armed forces
into a position in which it will
have to use mass reprisals in
order to curb the internal violence.
President Betancourt, appears
to be maintaining the support of
the peasantry and industrial
proletariat in a party which
certainly shows a greater
militancy than any which supported
former dictator Fulgencio Batista
in pre-Castro days.
Another difference between
Venezuela and Cuba is the fact
that the Venezuelan armed-forces
maintain an acute espir de corps
and have not thus far been
degenerated by pecuniary
corruption as was the case of the
Cuban National Army.
Furthermore, Betancourt has
shown that he is determined in
beating his Marxist foes without
imprudently liquidating the
principles of democracy (e.g.
cancelling elections; introducing
dictatorial powers for himself,
et al.) which Venezuelans have
Today, the U.S. has not been

selves themselves from a despot.
Since Venezuela is trying
desperately to establish a type
of flexible social democracy, the
case now stands that this
country is serving as a testing
ground for a new concept in
democracy in the Hemisphere. The
superiority of a pragmatic
liberalism in government is
meeting its challenge in an ideology
which is geared to a utopian
idealism and which is certainly
alien to the hemispheric social
structure and Inter-American

Rattler Fate Up
To Control Board
By WALKER LUNDY
The State Board of Control will ultimately have to give its stamp
of approval before Florida A&M could compete in the Florida Relays.
But the Rattlers dont want to come anyhowat least this year they
A&M track coach, Richard Hill, told The Alligator yesterday via
telephone from Tallahassee that they had their own relays set for
March 30, the same day as the Florida Relays.
We certainly would like to come though, the soft-spoken Hill
said. But its an invitational meet so we would have to receive an
invitation from Florida.
ON THE A&M track squad currently is the worlds best sprinter,
Robert Hayes, who has reeled off a 9.2 sec. in the 100 yard dash.
And it doent take Bob Mathias to know thats laying em down in
Speaking about a future engagement here, maybe next year when
his Rattlers would be available, Hill said, It sounds pretty good as
long as the two administrations did not have any objections. Thats
the main thing.
We made the bold assumption that Florida A&Ms administration
would not veto the idea and called Tigert Hall to sound them out.
Thats when Dr. Harry M. Philpott, the university vice-president,
informed us that Ye Ole Control Board would have to put thumbs up
on the project before it became a reality.
PHILPOTT SAID he had no idea about how the Board would feel
about the project.
We have an inkling.
Out idea is that the project would be done-in BEFORE it reached
the Board. Why?
Too much pressure would be brought to the ear along with too much
publicity if the thing snowballed as far as the Board. Besides, 50
miles of red tape exists between the Athletic Department, where
the thing would start, and the Board of Control.
Another point to be considered was raised by Philpott.
A number of schools in the meet have an unwritten law against
participating in integrated meets. We would probably lose them and
perhaps damaging the overall meet.
The man dlfinitely has a point. Schools from the part of Free
America known as Mississippi and Lousiana wouldn't think hot hottoddies
toddies hottoddies about the idea of A&M running in the Relays againat them.
BUT THEY MAY be in for somewhat of a shock when they arrive
Word has it that Brown University, an Ivy League College, may
bring some Negro athletes when it comes for the Relays. Might
prove to be interesting, huh?
The American Athletic Uhion (AAU) will hold a track meet here in
May in which Negro athletes from A&M will no doubt participate.
Philpott said the university and the Board have no say-so over
this since it is sponsored by the AAU.
Lets see how First Mississippi State, then the state high school
basketball tournament. Gosh, may be the progressive UF might
even get around to it in a few years.

The Gator baseball team, headed
by confidentbut reserved
Coach Dave Fuller, places its
SEC title and top national ranking
on the line when the season opens
If I had to point to any one
position as being pivotal, Id say
it was pitching, Fuller predicted.
We lost our two top pitchers
through graduation and the boys
coming up are going to have to
really pick up the slack if were
going to win. When you come
down to it, depth in pitching is
the secret to winning baseball.
Actually our club will be much
the same as last years, except
of course, the pitchers, Fuller
continued. Our outfield should
be the best defensively in the
whole country with Montgomery
(Earl), Lopez (Al) and Haskins
(Bernie) out there.
The Gators led the nation in
stolen bases last year and Fuller
feels that, if anything, Floridas
speed has improved over last year.
We still have one of our biggest
base thief s, (Tom) Moore,

experience are senior Art Ondich,
