removed from office as a result
of his exposes.
In recent years his articles
on the Federal Communications
Commission revealed misconduct
that led to the ousting of one
member and reforms in the
commissions operation.
Pearsons best known single
case was his running battle over
several years with the late Sen.
Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin.
McCarthy, who conducted Senate
investigation into Communism in
government, was eventually
censored by the U.S. Senate for
his witch-hunting.
Pearson, author of the Wash Washington

graduated from Swarthmore
College in 1919. He then went
overseas with the American
Friends Service Committee to
supervise relief programs in
devastated Balkan villages.

Miss Bryant and Alaimo will
hold a twist contest near the end
of the show, according to Chairman
Howard Glicken. A trophy will be
given to the winning couple, picked
at random from the audience.

Scruggs Supports Edwards,
Claims UF Breaks Promises

(Seventh in a Series)
Staff Writer
Like an echo from the past,
former United States President
Calvin Coolidges words, The
business of government is
business takes on new life in
the Gainesville city commission
elections Tuesday.
Attorney and former City Plan
Board member Sigsbee Scruggs
says he will support Harry C.
Edwards for re-electipn to the
Gainesville City Commission.
Edwards is opposing vocational
high school teacher Edwin B.
Edwards is the __ best
businessman in Gainesville,
Scruggs said, and knows what is
best for Gainesville.
Im not against a technician
or professor running for office
but he is an expert in only ope
line. He doesnt understand
business. Edwards does.
Scruggs said the UF is in a
position to benefit the town, but
hasn't. While he was on the City
Plan Board, from 1947-1959,
Scruggs said the UF reneged on
promises made to the City
He said the UF promised Thir Thirteenth
teenth Thirteenth Street would be used for
churches and private lodges from
University Avenue south to the
railroad tracks if the City
Commission would not zone that
area business.
The UF changed building plans
that had placed the administration
buildingTigert Hall off
Thirteenth Street and neither
consulted nor cooperated with the
commission, Scruggs said.
On the basis of that Im for
seeing a gas station on the corner
where Sigma Alpha Epsilon House
is, Scruggs said.
UF Students should be interested
in the coming election because they
use city services and city enter entertainment
tainment entertainment places, and some live
off campus in private housing,
Scruggs said.
I'm not against students. But
some of them are ill-mannered

The most recent appointment
was that of Dr. A. Curtis Wilgus,
Director of the UFs School of

them and they pound nails in the
walls and smash windows, and I
dont get enough rent from them
to pay my taxes, Scruggs said,
who added he charged a 15 per percent
cent percent depreciation fee.
Scruggs said he would be more
sympathetic toward the problems
of students if they would act like
ladies and gentlemen.
The issues involved in the city
election are what is important,
not who is involved, according to
The local newspaper has
designated one group of candidates
as the Old Guard and the other
group the Young Turks. Im with
the Old Guard. They stand for
progress without burden of
excessive taxation, Scruggs said.
Playgrounds, swimming pools
and pairks are out as far as Scruggs
is concerned if a bond issue has
to be floated to pay for them.
Im against taxpayers paying
for conveniences that other people
who do not pay taxes to the city
will get the most benefit.
There are plenty of vacant
lots in Gainesville. If these
unfortunate people want a place
for their children to play they
can send thorn to clean up a few
lots and make their own ball
diamond. Thats what we did when
we were kids.
Scruggs said the Old Guard is
against putting the finance and
utility departments under the City
Manager because he is not trained
to understand such problems.
The Old Guard believes in the

advancement of the city and special
utilities as a permanent matter,
not an expedient one. To be
permanent, Scruggs said, would
cost more but the income derived
would pay for its own way without
costing the taxpayer a dime.
The Young Turks, on the other
hand, stand for progress
unrestrained. They say to Hell

The Young Turks believe
parks, swimming pools and
playgrounds should be acquired
by bonding. They justify their
position by saying the time has
come when government no longer
looks to the people but the people
to government even for their
leisure playground time.
The Young Turks believe
utilities should be presently ex expanded,
panded, expanded, handled cheaply and the
money not spent used for

ties responsibilities onto the playgrounds.
Scruggs said he owns
considerable rental property and
is paying 26 1/2 per cent of his
gross income for taxes besides
paying utility and other taxes.
The back of this camel has
almost had its last straw. Im
trying to sell most of my rental
houses and if the Young Turks
are elected Ill redouble my
efforts, Scruggs said.
I don't want my tenants to
furnish recreation for those who
pay no taxes.

Twonkev Crimscott was a professor. Choate Sigafoos was a
sophomore. Twonkev Crimscott was keen, cold, brilliant.
Choate Sigafoos was loose, vague, adenoidal. Twonkey Crim Crimseott
seott Crimseott believed in diligence, discipline, and marking on the curve.
Choate Sigafoos believed in elves, Julie tandon, and thirteen
hours of sleep each night.
Yet there came a time when Twonkey Crimscottmentor,
sage, and savantwas thoroughly outthought, outfoxed, out outmaneuvered,
maneuvered, outmaneuvered, outployed, and out-witted by Choate Sigafoos,
It happened one day when Choate was at the library studying
for one of Mr. Crimscotts exams in sociology. Mr. Crimscotts
exams were murderplain, flat murder. They consisted of one
hundred questions, each question having four |>ossible answers
A, B, C, and D. You had to check the correct answer, but the
trouble was that the four choices were so subtly shaded, so
intricately worded, that students more clever by fur than Choate
Sigafoos were often set to gibbering.
So on this day Choate sat in the librury [wring over his
sociology text, his tiny brow furrowed with concentration, while
all around him sat the other members of the sociology class,
every one studying like crazy, every one scared and pasty.
Choate looked sadly at their stricken faces. What a waste!
he thought. All this youth, this verve, this bounce, chained to
musty books in a musty library! We should lx? out singing and
dancing and cutting didoes on the greensward! Instead we
are here.
Then, suddenly, an absolute gasser of an idea hit Choate.
Listen! he shouted to his classmates. Tomorrow when we
take the exam, lets allevery one of uscheck Choice A on
every questionevery one of them.
Huh? said his classmates.
Oh, I know that Choice A can't lie the right answer to
every question, said Choate. But whats the difference? Mr.
Crimscott marks on the curve. If we all check the name ans answers,
wers, answers, then we all get the same score, and everybody in the class
gets a C.
Hmm, said his classmates.
So wby should we knock ourselves out studying? said
Choate. Lets get out of here and have a ball!
So they all ran out and lit Marllwro Cigarettes and had a
ball, as indeed, you will too when you light a Marlboro, for if
there ever was a cigurette to lift the spirit and gladden the
heart, to dispel the shades of night, to knot up the ravelled
sleeve of care, to put spring in your gait and roses in your
cheeks, it is filtered Marlboro*firm and pure and fragrant and
filled with rich, natural, golden tobacco. And, whats more, this
darlin smoke comes in soft packs that are actually soft and
flip-top Iwxes that actually flip.
Well sir, the next morning the whole class did what Choate
said, and, sure enough, they all got Cs, and they picked Choate
up and carried him on their shoulders and sang For He's a
Jolly Good Fellow and plied him with sweetmeats and Marl Marlboros
boros Marlboros and girls and put on buttons which said I DOTH OX
But they were celebrating too soon. Because the next time
shrewd old Mr. Crimscott gave them a test, he did not give
them one hundred multiple choice questions. He only gave
them one questionto wit: write a 30,000 word essay on

The Papers Aim : All the news with decency our only limit.
'the shot heard
round the state
The Florida university system is in desperate
need of an entire overhaul.
That is the crux of the report released Monday
in Tallahassee at the third annual governors
conference. The report was made by Dr. Ralph
W. McDonald, higher education consultant from
Washington, D.C. who is directing a study into
Floridas space age needs in an attempt to chart
an effective course for the future.
According to this report, Floridas university
system hasnt a ghost of a chance unless it is
freed of the political controls which are currently
shackling it and has hampered its progress in
the past.
McDonalds space age proposal calls for an
appropriation of about $33 million in excess of
the amount which the State Board of Control is
asking the state legislature to allocate to the
universities. It is imperative, McDonald said, that
all the boards proposed budget be approved by the
legislature simply to achieve average status in
comparison to the rest of the nation.
This implies that, in order for Floridas expanding
university system to rise above the level of
mediocrity, a larger budget than that proposed
by the board of control is needed.
Concerning the political aspects of the report,
McDonald pointed out that Florida is one of few
states in the nation which pays its university
president less than the salary received by the
state governor. UF Pres.' Dr. J. Wayne Reitz,
receives $17,500 per year plus an automobile and
a home, compared to Gov. Farris Bryants $22,500
salary, a personal automobile and home.
According to Dr. McDonald, Under the present
political plan of university control at the state
level, a complex institution of higher learning, the
president of which guides, advises and inspires
hundreds of highly trained scientists, artists and
historians, is just another state agency.
In listing the flaws in the current system,
McDonald said the present scheme: 1) renders
useless the quality of administrations and teaching;
2) is foreign to the entire philosophy and nature
of intellectual inquiry for which a university exists;
3) shackles research and teaching rather than
freeing these priceless ingredients of progress,
and 4) places the emphasis upon the form and
mechanics of political management rather than
upon the spirit and dignity of effective leadership
in higher education.
Furthermore, McDonald adds, the continuation
of this system would destroy all possibility of
achieving greatness for Florida in the space era
because the essential qualities of strength and
effectiveness in higher education institutions could
not be attained.
This, perhaps, is one of the most important
points brought out in the report, if not the most
importantthat the continuation of the status
quo will result in the probable stifling of Floridas
chances of achieving greatness in higher education.
Mondays shot heard round the state is both
a warning and an attempt to rectify the current
weaknesses inherent in the states university
systemconditions which cannot continue to exist
if this state effectively makes the transition into
the space age a position above mediocrity.
We only hope that Dr. McDonalds report does
not fall on deaf ears.

New Peel-'What YOU Make It

I hesitate to use your pages
for a prolongation of what should
be a dead issue, but since I have
been attacked, some response
seems warranted.
1) As editor of The New Orange
Peel, I was admittedly personally
in favor of having The Old Orange
Peel denied space for advertising
in the Alligator. However, to think
I was the cause attributes powers
to me which Ido not have. The

Political Potshots

Key-Krazed students face SG

headline of a story written by
Gator staff writer Bonnie
Dahlquist, in last Tuesdays

statements by Jim Crabtree, sec.
of Finance and Paul Hendrick,
president of the student body,
lIL P^ tica potshots.
expressing their feelings that the
amount of monies presently being
spent by student government and
other student-fee-supported
organizations, are unnecessarily
Permit me to first say that
sentiments expressed by the
Secretary of Finance and the
President of the student body do
not constitute a crackdown.
Next, I think the term Key-
Krazed is an unnecessarily
loaded adjective, used in this case
to describe a person who quite
normally looks forward to and
appreciates the rewards offered
him at the end of a full years
service to the student body.
Certainly no one would want to
criticize the President of the
student body and the Secretary of
Finance for wanting to shave the
budget and redistribute funds to
deserving areas. However, in this
case I believe the money spent
for keys is going to a deserving
The people receiving these
awards have, in most cases,
done a real service for the student
body. Most of them wear their
awards proudly and young people
in the same area work hard to
earn their symbol of achievement.
I dont believe the award will
mean as much to the individual
if he has to pay for it. And for
the relatively small amount of
money involved, it would be a
shame to depreciate the value of
this small material reward that
represents so many hours of
service and means so much to
the beholder.
Paul apparently feels the
rewards are unnecessary, as a

decision to do so was made by
the Chairman of Student
Publications, with whome I never
discussed the matter, and for
reasons of his own concerning
questions about their methods in
obtaining advertising. Mr. Dixons
statements do not answer any of
the questions which existed. For
example, how could they claim
an existent circulation figure on
their cards of 7000-plus for a
magazine never before printed or
distributed? Their reaching of

gift, and that service should be
recognized more as its own
I agree, but to me, with all due
respect, this is an idealistic
platitude which might have a
home in the realm of theoretical
philosophy but certainly is not
compatable with what has been
proven to be expeditious and
necessary in getting people to
work without pay.
Please don't misunderstand. I
am not implying that student
government, and other fee feesupported
supported feesupported organizations, will
dissolve if they are denied free
keys, but I think in the long run
more will be lost than will be
gained by the change if it suceeds.
I hope many students will
contact their legislative council
representatives, if they can find
out who they are, and express
a positive opinion concerning this
Each council member will be
faced with voting to spend student
fees on himself and this is going
to be difficult. To you council
members who might feel self selfconscious
conscious selfconscious about spending fees on
yourself, I remind you that your
vote eliminating fees for keys
will deprive many people of a
very cherished traditional symbol
who are outside the council and
who are also depending upon you
to represent their desires and
Student fee distribution for 1962-
63 involved disbursement of
$361,050.00 The keys will cost
$625.00 for the same period and
will serve as a symbol of student

of more than two hundred deserving
students who have saved the student
body thousands o f dollars in
I suggest if someone in the
present administration really
wants to save money they should
eliminate the salaries of the top
four positions, a saving of well
over SIOOO.OO a year, and tamper
only with the people who have
already received the most out
of student government and not
start removing incentives from
people in the lower echelon.
In closing, I add congratulations
to Sally Truitt, Gator staff writer
and Ron Spencer, Gator editorial
editor, for their fine and
industrious coverage of the Honor
Bike issue.

such a figure with their first issue
does not warrant such a pre prestatement
statement prestatement which may indirectly
have been partly responsible for
their eventual success. In any
case, right or wrong, the decision
was not made by anyone on The
New Orange Peel.
2) The Old Orange Peel got
front page news stories plus an
editorial column in the Alligator.
In addition, there were even signs
in the University Campus Book
Store. If this is muzzling, The
New Orange Peel would like some
of it.
3) The Old Orange Peel may
be there with jackboots on in
their next issue, but they certainly
werent there in their first one.
There was not a single item of
new, original or UF-directed
satire. What satire was present
is referred to as exchanged
material. Since there has yet to
be any reprinting from The Old
Orange Peel, borrowed might
be a better term. In fact, much
of the issue was borrowed from
past issues of The Orange Peel.
As for the freedom of The New
Orange Peel, I can only suggest
an examination of its contents.
Finally, let me remind the
student body: The New Orange
Peel is your magazine. It is put
out with your money and by those
among you who desire to work
for the magazine. It is not a
clique operation. It will be what
you make it. All we as its present
staff can do is create the best
product we can produce. The
contents, the profits, and whatever
good may be in it are YOURS.
We want it to be the best and
hope that you do too.
The success or failure of the
Old Peel means only the success
or failure of its editors. The
success or failure of the New
Peel represents the success or
failure of all the student body.

Baxley Affair
Personal Matter
Regardless of Mr. Fuentevillas
status as a student at this
institution, he is in no way entitled
to a more detailed explanation
of the suspension of Tom Baxley.
Everyone seems to have
assumed that Baxley was
suspended for actions unbecoming
a TRUE athlete. I think Coach
Sloan has made it more than clear
in the past that he is ready to
discipline his players in the
manner which he feels appropriate.
It appears obvious to me that this
is a personal matter between coach
and player, and even though
everyone, including myself, would
like to know more, it just isn't
any of our business.
