who ryhmes her speech and part
of the time Lisa a, 14-year-old.
The story takes place inside a
home for exceptional" disturbed
children, those of successful
parents according to the American
formulasuccess equals money.
Fortunately, the movie does not
try to pinpoint why the children
are here, but concentrates on how
they may be helped to get out.
The film does point vaguely
at parents and society in general
as the chief causes, an almost
universally accepted diagnosis.
The parents, however, are closer
to being average rather than vilely,
blatantly evil as they are in some
pictures about teen-agers (e.g.
Rebel Without a Cause).
The two who play David and
Lisa, Keir Dullea and Janet
Margolin, play the parts with
surprising perfection for
newcomers. There are few parts
more difficult to play than that
of a person who is mentally dis disturbed,
turbed, disturbed, requiring a vast range
of emtion. Dullea and Margolin
dont miss a one.
They are tender, wrathful, at
times violent, Joyous, cautious,
vindictive, spiteful, loving, but
always right. The psychiatrist,
Howard DaSilva, has a slightly
easier part, but it is handled
with the same perfection.
Both Dullea and Margolin have
already won top awards for their
acting at the San Francisco Film

Survey Analyzes Students
In Dollars, Cents Figures
By MARY ANNE WALKER
UF students quaff down an esti estimated

alcoholic beverages annually, but
they spend a half million dollars
on books, school supplies, news newspapers,
papers, newspapers, and magazines.
A study published by the market marketing

was conducted on a random sample
of 292 UF students and gives pro projected

The study estimated UF students
spend an excess of ten million
dollars annually in Gainesville and
in 1961 provided 15 per cent of
the total expenditures iii the city.
The study indicated under the tri trimester

remaining in Gainesville for ten

should be even greater.

considered a typical month. It
presented the median amount spent
for several types of goods and
services and the percentages of
respondents who reported having
spent money for the item in Nov November.
This portion of the study also
indicated the number of students
at the UF who could be expected
to have amde similar purchases
during that month.
The study indicated students
spend $29,000 each month
on cigaretts and tobacco. They
shell out an additional $21,000
for beer and alcohol, not including
that paid for through fraternity
The largest amount of money
paid by students is $586,250
a month for prepared food, on the
basis of SSO per month per student.
If he buys his own groceries the
student spends only $25 each month
The most expensive single item
in student budgets is motor vehicle
installment payments. S6O a month
for the individual student and about
$16,000 for the student body.
Fifty cents was the smallest
amount allocated to any item on
the list. The half dollar was
spent for personal toiletries and
totals $5,044 monthly.
To maintain that look the

The Papers Aim : All the news with decency our only limit.
IT IS TRUE THAT we have an Honor System that is whatever
we make it, and also true that we haven't made it much.
What to do? We could abolish the Honor System. If this is to be
done, it must be done by the students. If we abolish it, with what
do we replace it?
We could replace the Honor System with a full proctored system.
A proctor system approaches the ultimate in police systems. When
you take a test, you can depend on not one, but several proctors to
shadow you throughout the entire test. Proctors are very efficient.
They accompany you to get a coke or a smoke. They usher you to
the restrooms. They sit beside you while you work. They are your
STUDENTS GRADUATING FROM colleges and universities with
proctor systems never know if they could have made it on their
own. Even worse, they have no proctors to shadow them the rest
of their lives. Let's face up to a cold, hard fact about proctor systems systemscheating
cheating systemscheating still goes on. Several nationally circulated magazines have
published stories attesting to how slick you have to be in order
to cheat under a proctor's nose. People who cheat under a proctor
system are just a little foxier than we. Proctor systems make no
pretense of curbing stealing or passing of worthless checks. Proctor
systems make no pretense of allowing the individual to discover
his own moral fibre.
More desirable than a proctor system is a non-descript device
known as letting the professor use his own system. Some UF
professors use this device. It is comforting to know that professors
possess the omnicient discretion to catch the cheaters and protect
the innocent. Many professors pride themselves in the statement,
Since I've been using my own system, not a single case of cheating
has been reported.
Well now, if students are hesitant to report cheating to other
students, let's not kid ourselves into thinking they will report them
to professors. Remember, students who know they're being
checked on are just a little foxier than average. And the
professor, like the proctor, won't be with his students after graduation.
Can such a professor say with equal certainty, Since I've been
using my own method, every student has determined his individual
responsibility to himself and others?
NON-DESCRIPT METHODS OF CATCHING cheaters have one
horrendous faultthere is essentially only one mind involved in
judging Innocence or guilt. Professors are hesitant to admit personal
bias, but quick to admit others have faults in their methods of dealing
What does the Honor System have that makegJjLdeslrable?
It has the integrity of the individual student who, if caught cheating,
will honestly admit his guilt. The Important thing here is not that
a student is caught and admits his guilt. The importance lies in the
student's reason for admitting his guilt, a reason that only he could
When a student pleads not-guilty to charges of Honor System
violation, he has something he has under no other system involving
determination of morals and character. He has the scalpel-like action
of both proponents and opponents of his guilt and innocence,
diametrically opposing each other in desperate attempts to search
out and reveal the truth. This truth is to be determined by a group
of the accused students peers, a student jury. Regardless of how
sincere or objective an individual or administrative agency of a
university may be, it cannot possess this two-sided quality in
we caiuioi ne* F ut feel that students who graduate from an Honor
System have at least a few more strands of a little stronger moral
fibre than students from other systems. He knows he has made it
on his own. He doesnt need a professor or proctor with him the
rest of his life.
WHAT CAN BE DONE to improve the Honor System Squeal on
cheaters? It's all according to what you call squealing. if you see
a stranger hustling off with your transistor radio, bicycle, or wallet,
is it squealing to do something about it. If somebody steals your
girl friend or boy friend, do you sit around and let somebody else
take care of it? If enough cheating goes on to reduce your honest
effort by at least one letter grade, have you been done wrong?
There are other alternatives than spotting a cheater and rushing
to turn him in. If you saw a strange student preparing to pick up
your books, would you not be quick to tell him they were yours and
that he had better leave them alone? If you spot someone cheating
probably the best thing you can do for him and yourself is to tell
him to his face that you dont like it. If the same student persists
after one or several warnings, try telling him youre going to turn
him in. The same applies to stealing and passing of worthless
checks. Even more Important than specifically What-to-do is
why-to-do-it. Consider how much more significant it would be
if it were your idea to have students determine for themselves
what value there is in an Honor System.

COUNTRIES IN TRANSITION.
In their search for raw materials
Europeans and North Americans
penetrated into Asia, Africa, and
Latin America. They built up
capitalistic enterprises of
monopolistic character, often
exploited the rich natural
resources and thus gave reason to
the basic doctrine of Marxism-
Leninism, that capitalism can only
exist through means of colonialism
and exploitation, a dogma which
was proven to be wrong by recent
history. In many areas, western
civilization was imposed upon
cultures of distinct pattern.
Feudalism developed to its
extreme in Latin America, and
is still in existence in many areas.
Only in the middle of this century
have many of these countries
succeeded in shedding the strings
of colonialism and attaining
political independence. Many are
still fighting against traditional
feudal or totalitarian authorities.

EDUCATION THE PRESSING
PROBLEM. One of the most
pressing problems of the
developing countries is education.
Technical skill and knowledge have
been* the basis on which the
development of the industrialized
countries has taken place. In many
parts of the world however, the
technical skill of the labor force
is totally inadequate to fullfill the
tasks ahead. .Illiteracy is very
widespread. UNESCO gives the
following figures for 1950: Haiti;
89.3; India, 82.1; Egypt, 74.5;
Brazil, 51.4; Bolivia, 68.9;
Guatemala, 70.3% of the population
above ten years of age being
illiterate. Though there is
progress being made, the
percentage of children enrolled in
schools is still very low in many
of the developing countries.
This low educational standard
along with the lack of technical
skill not only hinders the devel development

POVERTY AND SOCIAL
STRUCTURE. In many of the
countries in question the static
stability of traditional social
structure, determined by a
distinct cultural and religious
pattern, has been broken up,
superimposed by westernization
or is in a process of change. In
fact, the adjustment to the technical
age does require changes in the
infrastructure of many socieltes.
While such social revolutions are
in progress, energies are set free
and can be channeled for useor
misuse. They can be used to bring
about the change which is best
for that particular country, or
they can be misused for the
benefit of a foreign ideology.
Feudalism still is in existence
in many areas. The fact that most
of the low-income countries have
a percentage of agriculture
population higher than that of the
world average and far higher than
that of western industrialized
countries makes an effective
agrarian reform both a social
and economic necessity. (UN
estimates for the percentage of
agriculture population of the whole
population; World, 55%; Africa,
66%; Asia, 50%; USA, 14%; Europe,
33%; some countries up to 90%) In
areas where 10% of the people own
90% of the land, the gap between
the large number of people existing
on subsistence level and a small
very wealthy group which controlls
the entire circulation of money,
creates an unsound and unjust
distribution of the national income
low as it is.
The average daily intake of
calories is well below the
subsistence level for more than
two-thirds of the world's
population, and most of these
people lack an adequate supply of
of proteins, minerals and vitamins.
Although the recognized minimum
requirement is 2200 Calories per
day, the average Indian consumes,
1860; the average Peruvian, 1970
Calories daily; compared to an
average consumption of more than
3000 Calories in the USA and
western European countries, (UN
figures for 1959/60.).
Undernourishment and lack of
medical care are reflected in
the low lifetime expectency (in
many areas half of what western
people can expect) and high death
rate of infants (In 1960 death

BOARD OF CONTROL LETTER
Why Florida Adopted The Trimester System
(EDITOR'S NOTE. . Today,
in another of a series of
informative articles concerning
the trimester system, we are
reprinting in toto the text of the
letter received by Student Body
Inspector-General Warren Spiller
from .the State Board of Control,
answering questions pertaining to
the trimester which Spiller asked
the Board in an earlier letter.)
Mr. Warren Spiller
University of Florida
Dear Mr. Spiller:
Dr. Culpepper received your
letter of March 7 in which you
requested answers to several
questions related to the adoption
of the trimester plan of year yearround
round yearround operation. Dr. Culpepper
has asked me, as present
chairman of the Inter-
Institutional Committee on the
Trimester Operation, to respond
to your letter. I am very much
pleased to do so. Your concern
I shall first deal with your
1. WHY WAS THE TRIMESTER
SYSTEM CHOSEN OVER THE
QUARTER SYSTEM, WHICH HAS
ALREADY BEEN PROVEN AT
MANY UNIVERSITIES ACROSS
The Council of Presidents and
the Board of Control
recommended the trimester plan
after studying the problem of
how best to place the University
System on a year-round basis.
The Legislature of 1961 re required
quired required that the State University
System adopt a year-round
calendar and begin its operation
by September, 1962. A committee
made up of representatives of
all of the universities of the
System, immediately undertook
a thorough study of the various
alternative types of year-round
calendars; they recommended the
In examining the work of that
committee I find the following
unique advantages of the
trimester plan to have figured
in the decision to recommend
(a) The trimester plan required
less course and curriculum re reorganization
organization reorganization than would have been
necessary if the quarter system
had been adopted.
(This was a most important
consideration in view of the fact
the Legislature required the
adoption of a year-round plan
by September of 1962.)
(b) The trimester plan
eliminates the post-Christmas
(c) The trimester calendar can
provide for three full 15-week
trimesters; in the quarter system
it is practically impossible to
achieve four full 12-week
quarters in the calendar year.
(d) The trimester calendar was
the calendar most easily adapted
to the semester plan of operation;
thus less re-engineering of the
entire University System
Operation was required.
(e) The trimester system
would provide for a longer period
of employment for those students
who would not enroll in one
trimester each year in order
to work to earn funds needed to
finance college attendance.
(f) The trimester system
makes it possible for faculty
members to take vacations other
than in the summer.
2. THUS FAR, HAS THE
TRIMESTER SYSTEM LIVED UP
TO THE EXPECTATIONS OF
THOSE WHO INITIATED IT? HAVE
ANY UNEXPECTED PROBLEMS
We have not completed a year
of operation under the trimester
plan. Any knowledge we have of
its effects at this moment is
very preliminary. The first part
of your question could only be
answered on the basis of the
data yielded from one (1)
trimester of operation. However
it can be said with full confidence
that we do not have knowledge
today which would lead us to
say the trimester plan has not
lived up to the expectations of
those who initiated it. The
common sense of the matter
is simply that no one has the
knowledge necessary to answer
definitively, the question posed.
With reference to the second
part of query No. 2, I do not
know of any significant problems
which have arisen thus far which
were not some degree forecast.
3. HAS ANY LENGTH OF TIME
BEEN SET AT WHICH THE
RESULTS OF THE SYSTEM ARE
TO BE ANALYZED? IF SO, WHAT
IS THE TIME?
Evaluation of the trimester
operation in all of its con conceivable
ceivable conceivable aspects is being
planned. The Inter-institutional
Committee on Trimester
Operation has developed the
broad outlines of a
comprehensive two-year study of
the effects of the trimester plan.
We are at this moment in the
final stages of preparing a
proposal which will be used in
seeking foundation assistance in
making this study. The
installation of the trimester
calendar in an entire State
University System is another
first for Florida in American
education. Our experience with
the trimester calendar has past
implications for higher education
all over the country. We are
confident we will be able to
secure assistance in financing
out of the

The study as it is conceived
today would use data to be
yielded from the six (6) trimester
periods, September, 1962,
through August, 1964. For com comparisons
parisons comparisons with operations under
the semester calendar, data will
be gathered for the four (4)
semester periods, September,
1960, through August, 1962.
4. HAVE ANY PROVISIONS
BEEN MADE FOR A CHANGE
IN THE SYSTEM, SHOULD IT
PROVE DISADVANTAGEOUS? IF
SO, WHAT ARE THEY?
On the basic assumption that
there is no procedure, no
calendar, no method which cannot
be improved if enough
intelligence is focused upon it,
we expect improvements to be
made in the trimester operation.
Scientific method and the
reflective attitude, by their
nature, require us to locate and
eradicate the bugs in the
trimester operation. If, after
extending our best efforts to
intelligently adapt the trimester
system to the State University
System, it should develop that
this calendar has Inherent defects
that cannot be remedied by our
best intelligence, then lam
confident that appropriate
alternatives would be weighed
The study mentioned above
would be of great help to the
universities in accomplishing a
shakedown of the trimester
plan in our System.
5. IN GENERAL, WHAT WOULD
BE THE FEASIBILITY OF
SHIFTING INTO A QUARTER
The question could be read
to assume that the trimester
plan has been thoroughly and
reflectively Installed and refined,
and that it has been found to be
inherently defective. Os course,
The Florida Alligator Thursday, March 28, 1963
it is too early and much too
much work remains to be done
before it could be decided that
it would be desirable to shift
to any other system. However,
with respect to the feasibility
of the quarter plan, I shall list
some of the considerations which
were felt to weigh against the
(1) To achieve year-round
operation by using a quarter
system of four twelve-week
terms would be very difficult.
A study of quarter system
calendars in institutions where
the system is used will reveal
that usually the fall quarter is
twelve weeks in length, but that
the winter and spring quarters
are often about ten weeks. This
is not desirable from the
academic point of view.
(2) To adopt a quarter system
in the State University System
would require such changes as
(a) A reconstruction of our
present semester courses to
adjust them to the shorter term;
(b) A reconstruction of budget
and fiscal methods and
(c) A set of solutions to the
problems of the students who
wish to work part of the year
in order to earn money to
finance their attendance in
(d) A set of solutions to
problems of vacation and other
leave for faculty members;
(e) Reconstruction of plan of
curricula offerings around the
(3) The financial planning
for the 1963-65 biennium has
been done in terms o f the
trimester system; any change
, should be made at the beginning
of a new biennium.
With reference to personal
opinions which we have about
the trimester plan of year-round
operations, let me say that it
is felt that Florida men and
women attending the several
state universities give us cause
to be heartened with respect to
whether the trimester plan will
be tested in a genuinely
enthusiastic, reflective and open*
minded way. The faculties and
administrations of the several
institutions, along with students,
in our opinion, are determined
to make the plan achieve its
purposes, or to determine clearly
and impasslonately, the reason
why it will not achieve its
In closing, let me congratulate
you on your letter. Please let
us know if there are other ways
in which we can be helpful.

Ideal For Vault
John Pennel, who set a world record in the pole vault last weekend,
will find conditions ideal for reaching even greater heights Saturday
at the Florida Relays here.
The Northwest Louisiana State
athlete, whose vault of 16 feet

AAU Relays Saturday broke a mark
of 16- 1/2 held by Petti Nikula
of Finland, will be in the Florida
Relays field which will
start vaulting at 1:30 p.m.
He will find a situation which will
suit him for any reasons. The
asphalt runway developed by
Florida track coach Percy Beard
gives an advantage to all vaulters,
especially to one like Pennel.
Its big advantage lies in the
fact it will not cutup, said Beard.
This is an event where you haVe
all contestants using the same
stretch of straightaway and this
naturally creates a great deal of
wear and tear.
As the average runway cuts up,
it becomes slower and cuts down
on a vaulters ability to pick up
