After hearing a brief report on the McDonald Space Era Education

Florida's higher education.
Mayor Byron Winn and Alan Sutherland were appointed from the
City Commission, and Jack Durrance and Sidney Martin were appointed
to the committee from the County Commission.
The committee was appointed to serve with the Chamber of
Commerce to see what the commissions can do for the UF and higher
education, Winn said. They will report back their findings to their
respective boards.
The joint-meeting also agreed to approve and back the SEES report
and to become concerned vitally with it.

The Answer s No
SEC Sports?
Integrated athletics in the Southeastern Conference (SEC)
probably is a thing of the far, foggy future, according to
UF athletic officials and one student with more than a casual
interest in the question.
Several schools in the SECs neighboring Atlantic Coast
Conference (ACC) this year have begun active recruitment
of Negro athletes, bringing about a slight rumble from the
deep-South SEC.
The University of Maryland has accepted a transfer student
from the Navy Academy and expects to use him on the football
team in 1964. The University of North Carolina and Wake
Forest College have offered athletic scholarships to Negro
players of North and South Carolina.
No reports have been made of any such moves by SEC
schools, though some officials have candidly admitted privately
that it is probably only a matter of time before most if not
all of them make some move in this direction.
Last weekend the Kentucky Kernel, student newspaper at the
University of Kentucky, advocated that schools withdrawal
from the SEC in order to actively recruit Negro athletes.
UF athletic director Ray Graves was hesitant to comment
on the ACC situation or on the Kentucky story, although he
: did say the possibility of integrated athletics in the SEC
\ exists.
! The question has never arisen at Florida," Graves said.
As for the whole conference, it is difficult to say how
; conditions might vary from one year to another.
' I frankly cant say what course the conference might
| take, say in another five years. But the possibility exists
! that some move might be made in the future, but certainly
' not at this time.
; Graves and other officials in the athletic department explained
I there is no official or written rule against Negro participation
I in the SEC. They pointed out there has long been an unwritten
j policy against such participation and the realization that
; certain schools might withdraw from the conference rather
i than Join such a move.
' One such spokesman said, If and when any of the schools
; decide to utilize Negro athletes, the conference will probably
[ be greatly changed from what we know it today.
A UF student who could give something of an opposing view
i is hesitant to speak on the subject.
! He is Jesse J. Dean from Pensacola, a Negro freshman at
I UF who gained a reputation in high school football.
Dean, a fullback, said that he was considered too light for

\ Negro college. He said that he chose Instead to come to UF
f because of the superior educational advantages it offered.

A Decade of Great Arab Impact ...

A decade is but a moment in
the national life of a people. But
as a moment it can be truly
momentous in the life of an
individual, so a decade can have a
decisive impact upon the life of a

What are some of the more
important events which make such
an assertion justifiable? And what
has been their significance for the
present and for the foreseeable
future of the Arab nation?
A decade ago, almost to the
day, the Egyptian Revolution of
July 23, 1952, ended the rule of
Muhammad Alis dynasty and
brought to power the first Arab
rulers of Egypt in centuries.
This event was symbolic of a
process which was destined to be
one of the major characteristics
of the last decade. This process
may be appropriately called "the
Arabization of the Arab
The importance of this
revolution, which resulted in the
forced abdication of Egypts
monarch and the abolition of the
institution of monarchy, however,
went far beyond its symbolism. It
sparked a chain of events whose
end is not yet in sight, although
their trend is clearly discernible.
The two main paths along which
this trend has been moving are:

First, the revolution of July 23,
1952, has brought about the
irrevocable restoration of Egypt
to the Arab community. Egypt,
of course, had been Arabized since
the Arab conquest of 639-642 A.D.

The International Gazette
The Florida Alligator is proud to present the news and views of t>oth American and foreign
students in this issue. In cooperation with International Gazette editor Sabodh K. Garg, the
Alligator has prepared these two pages as a supplement to the Gazette, and hopes its American
readers will gain more than a little from the offerings. Future issues of the Alligator also
will be devoted to foreign student views.

Its people had adopted the language
of the Arabs, their culture, their
religion, their customs and their
general way of life.
Yet, in spite of becoming a part
of the Arab World, Egypt remained
somehow, apart from it.
The Egyptians and the Arabs
was not an uncommon expression
which one encountered in writings
emanating from Egypt. Egypts
leading role in the establishment
of the Arab League and, before
that, Ibrahim Pashas role in
liberating Syria momentarily from
Ottoman rule, and his attempt to
recreate an Arab empire do not
invalidate this observation. They
were attempts on the part of Egypt
to lead the Arab Nation, it is true.
But such attempts at leadership
seemed to lpck a realization of

shared destiny, a realization which
is an essential condition of
belonging. The growth of this
feeling of shared destiny was, in
large measure, the product of the
last decade.

The Arabs had to wait for
Republican Egypt before they could
hear an Egyptian head of state
say of them: We have suffered
together, we have gone through the
same crises, and when we fell
beneath the hooves of invaders,
they were with us under the same
The second important
consequence of the Egyptian
Revolution with which the last
decade was inaugurated may be
described as the remembrance of
the forgotten man. It is obvious
that the importance of such a turn
of events goes far beyond its
humanitarian or sentimental
appeal. It may well signify the
difference between the
regeneration and the further
degeneration of a society.
It is hardly an exaggeration to
say that, of all dangers which
threaten the health of a social
organism, the failure to make
proper use of available human
resources is the most fatal.
In regard to the development
and the proper utilization of
available human talent, pre-
Republican Egypt was a dismal,
failure. A high wall of nepotism
and corruption kept the masses
of the people separated from the
choicest opportunities which the
country had to offer. Almost all
avenues to earthly achievement
were in the watchful custody of
the privileged few.
With the advent of the
Revolutionary era, a nobility of
merit began to replace the much
less justifiable nobility of birth.
The ability and willingness to
perform services to society began
to receive the recognition which
was formerly reserved for loyalty
to the riding class.
The reservoir of native
abilities with which the masses
of the people were endowed, and
which was used only to further
the private interests of the few,
was thus freed upon the wider
stage of service to the common
The pivotal position which Egypt
enjoys in relation to the rest of
the Arab Worldin terms of
geography, education, literature
and artmade it inevitable that
these two major consequences of
the Egyptian Revolution be felt
throughout the Arab Homeland.
The return of Egypt to the Arab
family made it possible for the
Arab people to be more respon responsive
sive responsive to her leadership.
Also, the hope which the
Republican Regime offered the
forgotten man stimulated the hopes
of his brethren in the rest of the
Arab World. The increasing pop-

They reconfirm the famous

Another major development of
the last decade which had an
enormous influence upon the life
of the Arab Nation had been the
liberation of the Arab World from
alien rule.
A mere glance at the map of
the Arab world as it was before
1952 and as it is today suffices
to confirm the fact that the last
ten years were for the Arab
people, the Age of National
During the last decade, the Arab
States of Sudan, Tunisia, Morocco
and Algeria emerged from the
stifling grip of colonialism into
the broad daylight of independent

square miles of Arab territory
and forty-five million Arab
people have made the transition
from bondage to liberty! The last
decade had entered the Arab World
and found it half-free. When it
left it, it was almost totally so.
The little protectorates along
the coasts of the Arabian Peninsula
are the only remaining
dependencies anywhere in the vast
expanse of the Arab Homeland.
Even there, the last few years
have witnessed the irresistible

The preceding discussion of the
Arab movement for national
emancipation was concerned only
with the breadth of the movement.
But this is only one of its
dimensions. The liberation of Arab
lands, however, had taken a three threedimensional
dimensional threedimensional form during the last
ten years. Its second aspect was
the replacement of native regimes
subservient to non-Arab interests
with regimes more responsive to
the peoples wishes and more
mindful of their nations interests.
This change had by no means
been completed during the last
ten years, but it had been
significant, and where it had not
been ccnsumated it had begun to

Arab society along lines more
worthy of its glorious past and
present potentialities.

witnessed during the last decade
a veritable revolution.
Some figures are given here to
indicate the extent of the
achievement. In 1956, when
Morocco achieved independence,
only 200,000 Moroccan children
received any schooling.
This figure represented only
12 1/2 per cent of the countrys
potential school population.
Within four years of indepen independence,
dence, independence, Morocco had increased the
figure four times to 800,000. In
Saudi Arabia, the achievement had
been just as impressive. The
increase in total expenditure on
education between 1952 and 1960
was about 900 per cept. The number
of children in elementary schools
had more than doubled, and the
number of secondary school
students had more than tripled.
There was also a proportionate
increase in the number of schools
built and in the number of teachers
Ten years ago, only 40 per cent
of Egyptian children of school
age could find itpossible to receive
an elementary education.
Today, the figure has been in increased

an increase from 1,500,000 to
Present plans aim at providing
elementary education for every
Egyptian child by the academic
year 1969-70.
This enormous leap forward in
education and educational facilities
has been largely a reflection of
similar achievements in the field
of economic development. Although
the industrial revolution which is
taking place has not been uniformly
successful throughout the Arab
World, it has been speedy and
substantial in some of the Arab
States especially in Egypt.
Thanks to Egypts industriali industrialization
zation industrialization program, it has become
possible today to build a home
furnished and equipped with all
the modern conveniences
manufactured in Arab shops and
factories. This may not sound very
impressive in this- space age of
ours, but it would appear to be
highly significant when one keeps
in mind the fact that merely ten
years ago the most elementary
and essential household articles in
an Arab home had to be imported
from outside.
In agriculture, improved
methods of farming, land
reclamation, land reform and the
establishment of cooperatives as
sources of supplies, credit and
marketing services have given the
Arab farmer a renewed hope in
a better life free of exploitation.
In the area of social
reconstruction, the most profound
change has been the liberation
of the Arab woman from the grip
of idleness and a largely inactive
life. It is ironical that one should
speak of the emancipation of the
Arab woman zs a contemporary
Another major development
which took place during the period
under discussion is that the quest
for Arab unity has moved from the
Initial phase of day-dreaming,
where so many great movements
begin, to the stage where it has
become an urgent item of business
on the agenda of the Arab nation.
This fact alone suffices to bring
out the importance of the present
decade to future of the Arab World.
But when the other factors, dis discussed
cussed discussed above, are added to it then
the assertion can be reasonably
made that this decade will go
down in Arab history as the critical
decade in the age of Arab
National Fulfillment.

A 'Great Debate On Role
Os Foreign Student Advisor

By w.w. YOUNG
Foreign Student Advisor
During the past few months the
question of the role of the foreign
student advisor has been
enthusiastically debated.
One school of thought holds that
the adviser should serve primarily
as a social mediator between
the foreign student and his new
academic and cultural
environment. The other maintains
that the adviser should concern
himself primarily with the
substantive aspects of the foreign
students educational program.
Foreign student enrollments at
the UF have increased about two
and one-half times during the same
It then suggests that todays
foreign student no longer is
typically the cultivated, wealthy
youth from a Western European
family, but is more likely to be
here on his own resources for his
own special purposes. Moreover,
he is likely to be from Asia.
Present trends indicate that by
1970 three out of four of all foreign
students will be from the Far East.
As the means of dealing with
the problems created by an
expanding and changing foreign
student clientele, the report
suggests the following goals:
1) Closer cooperation between
public and private agencies
concerned with international edu education
cation education and the various host
2) A clearing house
arrangement whereby foreign
students wishing to attend an
American university can obtain
accurate and comprehensive

information concerning curriculi
and environment.
3) An admissions policy that
would take into account differences
in the backgrounds and preparation
of varous students from abroad.
4) Specialized training in
English language, but with
recognition that proficiency' for
those studying in some fields, i.e.
sociology, will require more
language skill than those in others,
i.e. biology.
5) Orientation with respect to
course load, housing facilities and
United States cultural patterns as
an integral part of the foreign
student registration process, and
6) Financial aid programs
- including summer work
opportunities and loan procedures
tailored to foreign student needs.

Mautz Claims
Tight Budget

Staff Writer
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
first in a seFies of articles by
Alligator staff writer Pat
Wilkinson on the needs of state
universities. )
Any way me UF budget request
for the 1963-65 biennium is sliced,
the trimmings will be lean meat
and no fat, according to Dean
Robert L. Mautz of UF academic
A 17.7 per cent is the amount
the Florida Budget Commission
is recommending be pared. The
State legislature is being asked
to accept the figure of $80,285,623
as adequate for the UF budget,
according to budget figures.
The difference between this
figure and the UF request of $97,
557,303 is a whoppingsl7,27l,6Bo.
Most of the loss will be $lO
million in salary raises. The
remaining $7 million is for
expenses, operating capital outlay
and other services, Mautz said.
The whole point is what kind
of a university are we going to
be? Mautz said. We dont have
to have any of the money requested
We could make all classes 200

That would be paring the UF
budget to the bone, according to

enrollment, the changing character
of the student body and the
increased demands upon it by the
State, Mautz said.
The new-building program is 10
years behind UF needs, he said.
In fact, if the UF request for
building funds $32,270,000
is passed it will be adequate only
for the present and does not
consider the future, Mautz said.
The size of the UF faculty, both
instructional and research, is
adequate for 1958 student
enrollment of 11,000.
At present the UF can accept
only the top 40 per cent of Florida
students applying for admission,
Mautz said.
In comparison, all Ohio
residents who apply for admission
to Ohio State University are
admitted, Mautz said.
The bright Florida student who
fritters away his high school years
may have to look elsewhere than
the UF for his college education.
UF library facilities are
adequate for the 1958 student
enrollment of 11,130. Present
enrollment exceeds 14,000.
Mautz said the biggest -reason
for a big 33-62 per cent annual
turnover in non-academic workers
is due to extremely low wages.
The UF budget request for at least
a 20 per cent increase in these
salaries is based on the statement
that dissatisfaction is endangering
the UFs operational efficiencv.
Mautz said there must be a
climate of understanding that will
lead to the realization that present
political and physical restrictions
handicap the UF.

ON MORE THAN many occasions in the 49 years of the Honor
Systems existence some knowledgable soul has spewed forth with,
The Honor System doesnt work.
As in any institution involving mass participation, the Honor
Systems success or failure is not a black and white issue. For
those who believe in it and support it, the Honor System has varying
degrees of success. It is most successful to those who dont cheat,
dont steal, dont pass worthless checks, and dont know or care
whats going on around them.
To those who successfully cheat, steal, and pass worthless checks,
the Honor System is a laughable flop. To those who get caught its
a horse of another color. On the whole, "however, the general success
of the Honor System leaves much to be desired.
THINK WHAT YOU will, but the Honor System is of the students,
by the students, and for the students. No one but students can benefit
from it.
When viewed in this light, the faults of the Honor System are a
The University has in effect said, We are willing to trust you
to conduct yourself in a manner of one raised in a good home; to
bear the responsibilities you will eventually bear in a home and
community of your own.
When you give credence to the argument that the Honor System
doesnt work, you are in effect saying, I and my fellow students
cant be trusted to conduct ourselves without the guiding hand from
home; we are displaying the type of citizenship we expect to practice
in the future.
THIS IS TRUE because the University is not responsible for
conducting your life, nor is the State of Florida or any other outside
agency. Is it the Honor Courts responsibility to shape your concepts
of responsibility?
The Honor-Court is merely an agent of the student body. Officials
of the Honor Court are at your beck and call.
IT REALLY ENT necessary to say the faults of the Honor System
lie within the same group that supposedly benefits from the Honor
System. But to reveal the crux of the paradox, who is it that creates
the image of its cool to look askance at the Honor System? Who
is it that isnt going to squealonhis contemporaries? Who is it that
isnt going to run around, waving the flag for the Honor System?
Who is it that doesnt want to be separated from the group?
What group? Go home and explain the ideals of the group to
your parents, wives, relatives, friends, neighbors, old school teachers,
and pastors.
They will certainly be proud of you.

JUNIOR COLLEGES HAVE been called by some of our foremost
educators and legislators one of the foremost links in our educational
All too often in the past, the junior colleges of this state have
been overlooked by the majority of people. Initially, the state junior
college program started on a very small scale, but with the recent
expansion of the state university system, the junior college program
has grown with leaps and bounds until today there are some 29 junior
colleges operating in the state.
The role of the junior college in the educational scheme of today
and of the future is one of intrinsic importance, for these 29 school
institutions and the many which are sure to follow will serve as
the foundation stones and the building blocks with which the dream of
a truly great state university system can possibly be synthesized.
MORE AND MORE, state educators, legislators and others are
coming to realize that the success of the state system of higher
education will depend to a large extent upon the success of the
junior colleges. . that the chain which is our university system
is only as strong as its weakest link. This does net necessarily
imply that the junior colleges today are the weakest link in the
university system; in fact, in the future in order to assure success,
it is almost imperative that the junior colleges become perhaps the
strongest link in the system. The junior college today is perhaps
not the weakest link, but it is certainly one of the most underrated
and most overlooked.
Most Floridians are aware now of the fantastic growth stage in
which state higher education presently finds itself. However, some
still do not realize that perhaps the best solution to the problem of
finding room for the high school graduates of today and tomorrow
lies in the junior college setup.

A Southerner Protesting
Souths Cultural Revolution

In the last column we discussed
Southern provincialism, which,
nourished by the fear of outside
interference, is a chief
characteristic of the dying South
now represented mainly by
Alabama, Mississippi, and a
handful of politicians elsewhere.
This old regionalism is reeling
under the impact of many changes.

diversification progressed, but,
more importantly, agriculture now
has to share the Southern spotlight
with industry. Every day three to
four new industrial plants locate
in the South, often bringing in new
people and always inspiring new
Second, the mass media,
particularly television, are
destroying regional speech, dress,
and habits of thinking. Finally,
as Negroes flee to the North and
West and their proportion of the
Southern population declines,
whites feel less fear of Negro
domination and place less
emphasis on race hatred and
Examining some of these
changes more closely, we might
discuss the Southern cultural
revolution first, because its
influence is most pervasive.
Television, since World War 11,
has had a much greater impact
than radio ever did. Radio, in the
1920s and 19305, was much less
dominated by national networks
than television is today. Hence,
it pandered to existing tastes.
The South listened to Lum and
Abner, Amos n Andy, hillbilly
shows like The Grand Ole Opry
and the evening church services.
Other entertainment included
religious revivals, minor league
baseball, drinkin, cuttins and
shootin's. Despite church
opposition, movies slowly became
popular. Hollywood capitalized on*
this interest by characterizing all
Negroes as grinning idiots saying
Yassuh, boss, and by presenting
such Old-South fakery as Birth

Moreover, the Old South has

from the white ball park. Conse Consequently,

Other changes have occurred
also. Southern Cities have
established community concert

fine symphony orchestras such as
those of Dallas and Atlanta have
been founded; North Carolina has
begun an outstanding art museum
at Raleigh. The South may still

The Trimester System:
A Candid Explanation
Another in a continuing series of informative articles on the
trimester system will begin in Thursdays Florida Alligator
when the State Board of Control explains its reasons for the
switch to the trimester.
Student government interest, in particular by
Inspector-General Warren Spiller, in the inner-workings of
the trimester system and exploration of the possibility of a
switch to a quarter system led to tomorrows publication.
Spiller wrote the board asking it several questions, including,
Why was the trimester system chosen over the quarter
system which has already been proven at many universities
across the nation?.

One way to improve team
performance, attendance and
morale would be the facilities of
an indoor swimming pool. The
need for an indoor pool increases
from year to year.
During the Georgia meet in the
62 season, the weather was so
cold and the steam from the pool
so great that it was almost
impossible to see the action in
the pool. Once a swimmer was in
the water, he was not seen until
he was out again. Conditions in
an indoor would have prevented

on open bleachers. The weather

The swimmers themselves
would do better and turn in faster
times in. an indoor pool, because
they would not be tight from the
cold weather.
The advantages of an indoor
pool are not just for the swim
team but the entire student body.
The pool could be used for the
swimming classes all year round
instead of them not swimming on
cold dgys. The pool could also
provide recreational facilities
year round.

In short, the U.S. has tried to
impose this titanic reform bill on
states which are controlled by a
landed gentry which nods its
sanction to reforms, but which will
not overtly promote social
advancement. This sector of Latin-
American society is on the decline
and yet it continuously refuses
to enact or even support social
legislature which would aid the
people and perhaps prevent its
total destruction. The case
however, is radically different in
Central America where popular
governments have re-educated the
landed aristocracy into acquiring
a social conscience.

AAUPs first historic function
has been to protect academic
freedom. Teaching evolution was
taboo in many colleges in the early
days of AAUP. A professor might
be summarily dismissed for
violating this restriction. Other,
more-familiar forbidden subjects
have been religion, sex, and
communism. (I note in this

professor and his whole staff at
Baylor University resigned

The alternative at issue is not
whether these people go along the
lines of capitalism or communism.
The alternative at issue is; will
they yield to Soviet imperialism
and accept the communist doctrine
or will they succeed in going
their own way with a system of
government, economy and social
structure which is best adapted
to their condition.

AAUP maintains that a professor
be free to seek out and teach the
truth as he sees it, regardless
of vested interests and popular
prejudices. The ground rules for
academic freedom have been
spelled out in the AAUPs 1940
Statement of Principles of
Academic Freedom and Tenure."
Tenure provides that once a
professor has gone through a trial
period he is protected from
dismissal except for serious
cause. This allows him freedom
in his teaching without fear of
being sacked for offending
influential persons or groups.
What happens if the
administration of a university
takes action violating these
principles of academic freedom
and tenure? The National AAUP
sends a committee to investigate.
If this committee finds the
university in violation and refusing
to rectify the situation, the
committee publishes an account
of its findings and AAUP puts the
university on its censured list."
This serves as a warning to
professors who are considering
employment at this institution.
Experience has shown that most
colleges will correct the situation
rather than become subject to this
public rebuke.
AAUP also takes the attitude
that adequate salaries are
necessary to recruit and hold
competent people in the profession.
To aid in this effort, the National
AAUP annually surveys salary
levels by rank at all universities
and colleges and publishes the
survey. This study has certainly
been a tremendous help to U.F.
in obtaining salary improvement,

by making possible a comparison
of our salaries with those at
comparable institutions. The
latest comparison shows that we
are still well behind, but we are
looking to the legislature for
further adjustments.
Activities of the U.F. chapter
this year have included support
of academic freedom in the case
of Professor Grebstein of USF
and reaction to the Board of
Controls Directive on communism
etc.; personal observation of Board
of Control meetings and the
governors conferences on higher
education; and study of the
trimester operation.
Goals that AAUP helped to
achieve last year were the revision
of the U.F. constitution and the
permission for faculty to take
part in local political affairs and
hold local public office. Goals
we look forward toward reaching
this year are improved salaries
for both academic and
non-academic university employes
social security,insurance benefits,
and a faculty club. Before too
long, we believe that faculty at
U.F. will be able to earn sabbatical
leaves as is customary at uni universities
versities universities in other states.
Membership in AAUP is open
to university faculty who teach
or do research at least half time,
lbrarians who hold professional
rank are also eligible. Graduate
students are eligible to junior
AAUP hopes its efforts will
make the scholarly profession
more competitively attractive to
qualified students so that more
of them will make college teaching
and research their career.

After NCAA
RALEIGH, N.C., (Special) Florida's undefeated swimming team
arrived here today for final workouts prior to the NCAA championships,
a three day meet beginning Thursday.

Coach Bill Harlan brought
freestylers Terry Green, Harry
Wilder and Buddy Floyd,
butterflyer Jerry Livingston,
medleyman Eddie Reese, back backstroker
stroker backstroker Dick Farwell and diver
Lansing Price to represent the
Southeastern Conference champion
Gators at the meet.
Several of these boys," said
Harlan, have a chance of making
All-America and winning points
for us.
ALL-AMERICA honors go to
approximately the top ten
swimmers in each event throughout
the nation. To win team points,
a swimmer must finish in one
of the top six spots at the NCAA
Best Gator bet this year for
these honors is junior Jerry
Livingston, the sixth-ranked 100
yard butterfly artist at last years
meet. His efforts accounted for
the Gators' only point last season.
Jerry should do even better
in the 100-yard race this year,
noted Harlan, and he will be a
threat in the 200-yard course too.
Co-captains Terry Green and
Eddie Reese also have good
chances to qualify, he added.
100, 200 and 500-yard freestyle
for the Gators during the regular
season, looks strongest in the
200-yard event. Reese will make
his bid for honors in the 400-
yard individual medley.

FSU Stops Netters
The Florida State Seminoles rambled through the Florida Gator
tennis team here yesterday for a 6-3 victory.
The loss ruined a thus far perfect season for the Gators, now with
a 6-1 record.
For the UF athletes the loss marked the first defeat this year in
eight contests with FSU.
For the Florida freshman the day also spelled defeat as they
lost to the Baby Seminoles, 7-2.
In varsity singles matches FSU took four out of six. Bill Tym
of UF lost to FSUs Lex Wood, 6-4 and 12-10. UFs Jerry Pfeiffer
lost to Don Caton, 6-2 and 6-2.
In other singles matches Gator Ron Rebhuhn defeated Seminole
Dave Mower 6-2 and 6-2, Gator Fred Shaya lost to FSUs Paul
Bennet, 9-7 and 6-1, UFs Don Losman defeated FSUs Ken Alcorn,
8-6 and 6-3, and FSUs Don Monk defeated the UFs Bob Agnew,
2-6, 64 and 6-3.
FSU took the number one doubles match as Wood and Bennett
rolled the UF duo of Tym and Pfeiffer, 7-5 and 8-6. Down court
FSUs Caton and Monk defeated Shaya and Losman, 6-4 and 6-4.
For the third doubles match, UFs Rebhuhn and Bobby Dodd triumphed
over FSUs Alcorn and Harry Folsum, 6-3 and 6-1.
The UF squad is in action again this afternoon against the Hatters
from Stetson U.

Price shots at qualifying Thursday.
Dick wiH be a threat in the
200-yard backstroke par particularly,
ticularly, particularly, Harlan said, and he
will have an outside chance in the
100-yard backstroke.
Price, the top-ranked
sophomore diver at last years
meet, has regained his form and
could crack the All-America circle
on the one-meter diving board.
Senior Harry Wilder swims on
the strong Gator freestyle relay
team which could also place high.
