Williams attributed the fine

We emphasized that the Army

About 483 foreign students are
currently enrolled at the UF.
These students come from almost

Greece, France, Sweden and Italy,
to Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon,Syria,

Some are sent her e by their

How are these students chosen
to come here to UF?
There are three qualifications
necessary, according to W. W.
Young, foreign student advisor.
1) Academic qualifications the
student must have been well above
average in his class in previous
secondary or university education;
2) Facility in English language
- each must be able to read,
write, speak and understand spoken
English well, and
3) Finances each must arrange
for adequate funds to meet the
costs of living and being educated
in America.
As far as grades are concerned
the foreign students do very well
despite barriers, said Young. Two
foreign students have 4.0 averages
in nuclear engineering, while
another rates a 4.0 in chemistry.
About one-third of the foreign

Immediately find many differences

The UF offers an eight-week
long English Language Institute
during the summer to help the
foreign student learn the language
and adjust to American life.
Several students although they
study English in their high school
before coming here, have never
spoken the language. They still

You cant teach brain surgery

Under the UF system a maximum
of two three-credit courses can be

from one month to one year.
Each'course is based on a study

Couple Graduates
With Med Degrees

NeWs Editor
Stethoscope, lab coat and diaper
pail have been the everyday tools
in the lives of Jim and Nell Potter
for the last few years.
Both Jim and Nell will graduate
from the UF College of Medicine
on June 2, and will boast a two twoyear-old
year-old twoyear-old daughter as well as their
identical degrees.
The Potters, both 25, met during
their freshman year of medical
school at the UF, and were married
soon after. They plan to intern
in Pensacola.
Actually Ive had less to do
than when I was single," said Nell,
explaining that they live with her
mother-in-law, Mom buys all the
groceries, cleans house and has
dinner ready for us.
Both Potters feel it would have
been very hard to manage without
being in the same year in school
and without parental help. Because

they have had much the same
classes, they have been able to
see each other in their precious
spare time and understand each
other's problems.
Nell's parents have helped with
her school expenses, while Jim
has many loans" to finance his.
They figure a med student is a
pretty good loan risk," Jim said.
Have the Potters had trouble
Yes," said Nell, Everybody
does the last few years."
It's also hard to space studying
between patients," Jim said.
Homework in the last few years
of medical school isn't like the
usual grind of text books and tests,
according to Jim. It concerns
working with patients, and reading
up on the diseases you come

The Paper's Aim : All the news uith decency out oni\ limit

deficient diet
ONE OF THE APPARENT deficiencies in the University of Florida
students academic diet is the lack of a suitable visiting speaker
program which would attract students to campus speeches.
With the sometimes overmagnified but still ever present burden
of the trimester hanging over the head of the UF student, all too
often this past trimester the "student has found himself shying away
from the speeches presented on campus by instructors, traveling
lecturers, deans, professors and other important persons because
I just didnt have enough time, or *l simply had to much to do.
THE APPARENT LACK of time coupled with a certain tangible
amount of indifference by a large part of the UF student body toward
listening to any speaker, regardless of his stature and the relative
lack of what we might term controversial speakers all of these
have combined to cripple the present speakers program.
Granted, the UF brought at least two well-known speakers, both
controversial, to campus this spring. These would be Drew Pearson,
noted international newspaper columnist and author of Washington-
Merry-Go-Round, and six-time Socialist Presidential Candidate and
avid pacifist Norman Thomas. Mira Cardona, a leader in the
anti-Castro counterrevolutionary movement, spoke in Spanish to
primarily a Latin audience in McCarty Hall early in the trimester.
But, to most of the non-Spanish-speaking audience, what he said
was Greek.
THE POLITICAL APPETITES of UF students have been whetted
in the past, by classroom discussions only to be left unsatisified
when controversial political speakers were not forthcoming. Last
fall an American Communist was not allowed to speak on campus,
thus stirring up wrath in the hearts of some of the more interested
and less apathetic and less Red-fearing students on campus, who
championed the principles of freedom of speech to the nth. degree.
To some extent, the political appetites of UF students have thus been
repressed. <
Speakers of a controversial nature who could be considered for
speaking on campus, for Instance include such men as Barry Goldwater,
William F. Buckley, James R. Hoffa, Martin Luther King, Allen
Dulles, Dean Acheson, and an endless list of other noted and prominent
Americans who dally influence the American scene.
IDEALLY, THE COLLEGE campus should be a melting pot of
ideas, of knowledge. Why not take advantage of noted men and fine
speakers who would be willing to visit the campus, if only asked?
Buckley, Thomas, and others make it a practice to conduct several
lectures each year to college audiences. Some of these men are
Liberals, some Conservatives. Some are Republicans, some
Democrats, a few Socialists; Some are labor leaders and some men
who are concerned with the problem of integration versus segregation.
Some are military men, many are men of great political stature. Some
are Radicalsbut should we exclude them from speaking because of
Freedom of speech on a college campus includes, at least in our
eyes, far more than just allowing certain people to talk at certain
times. In order to remain Indeed free, freedom of speech must be
constantly exercised.
WE FEEL THAT THE campus is lagging behind certain others
around the nation in attracting strong speakers of various political
viewpoints here to speak and lecture. Were overlooking a major
part of any college educationdirect contact with the men who are
making the news and forming the opinions of tomorrow.
And, were not exercising a freedom for which men have been willing
to fight wars in order to obtain and maintain in the not-too distant
past. In short, were overlooking what could be a very important part
of any students college education.

I am a 2UC student at UF who
transferred from the University
of Georgia in Athens, Georgia,
last September.
The University of Georgia was
on the five-hour quarter system
where a student carried three five fivehour

students to concentrate on three
courses and give adequate attention
to each. Each course was covered
thoroughly, and there was no
chance of important material being

The letters were for excessive
absences in classes which I had

and met in a lecture hall where
roll was taken by a paid assistant.
In the first case, the assistant,
started taking roll before the bell
rang. In the second instance, the
man had been marking the person
in front of me under my name.
I was told both times that nothing
could be done. I was also told
that the professor never sees the
From my counsellor, I later
learned these facts. Four copies
of the letters go out: to the person,
the parents, to the permanent file,
and to the professor. My counsellor
said I should have gone to my
professor and should have
explained the situation. It seems
that some professors count heavily
on attendance.
I know of several other people
to whom this has happened. The

Latins Suffer From Militarism

Harry Kantor has remarked in his
lectures, is full of countries
occupied by their own armies.
The issue of militarism in Latin
America is one of paramount
importance in the 20th. Century
for several reasons: Castroism,
communist agitation in the rest
of the hemisphere, the question
of the Monroe Doctrines visability
and such collective security pacts
as the Rio agreement.
This week has seen the takeover
of another Latin nation, Guatemala,

by the military. The naval revolt
in Argentina and the military junta
in Peru are other current examples
of the continuing struggle between
civilian and military factions in
our neighboring republics. With
few exceptions, all Latin nations
have suffered under a caudillo
some time in this century.
Militarism in Latin America
stems from the Spanish heritage
in great part. The driving,
fanatical energy behind the Spanish
soldiers carried over into the New
World, as did their prestige.
The Wars of Independence in the
first quarter of the 19th. Century
gave another boost to militarism,
as did two World Wars. But it is
evident that present-day
militarism could not exist to any
large degree without the support of
the United States.
It was an American-built tank
which knocked down the gate of
the Presidential Palace at the time
of last years military coup in
Peru. And it is American arms
which form the mainstay of most
Latin American armies.

do well to consider placing its

learning on the quarter system!

defend this hemisphere in another
war, as it was in World War H.
In that conflict only two Latin
American nations sent troops.
The truth is that Latin America
in general, needs an armed forces
large enough to assure internal
order a sort of national police
force and nothing more. There
is no threat of one hemispheric
entity invading another, and the
so-called threat of Castroism
could better by met by diverting
huge military expenditures into a

communism breeds. These roots

It was this type of action which
imposed sanctions on the Trujillo

but collective intervention in Cuba

In any case, the military support
given by the U. S. has, traditionally,
been used by generals and colonels
to take and maintain control of their

Floridian today publishes the
following announcement: We are
authorized to state that the
Governor has contracted for 3,000
pairs (cotton and wool cards) at
$6.00 a pair, 1,000 are to be
delivered within six months, and
the remainder within a reasonable
time thereafter. If this contract
is carried out in good faith, and
we doubt not it will be, it was a
capital bargain on the part of the
Governor, and is but another proof
of his devotion to our suffering
soldiers, and the best interests
of the state. He enjoys the
reputation of also managing his
private affairs with eminent
success, and this contract entered
into with parties entirely respon responsible

just as particular in driving a
bargain for the state as for
himself. Some $20,000 were
appropriated for this purpose, and
if the governor can manage to
furnish 3,000 pairs out of this
fund when the same articles are

will have acted his part well.

The Sentinel, in an editorial
appearing today, endorses the
Impressment Act recently voted
by the Confederate Congress. It
will have the effect of increasing
the supply of provisions in this
market, consequently of reducing
the price. Farmers, the editorial
declares, were reluctant to take
their produce to market, fearing
that it would be impressed for
less than market price or without
juftt compensation. BacOn was
selling last week in Tallahassee
for eighty cents for sides, and

is plenty of bacon in the country,
but the farmers have been afraid
to bring it to market. . this
fear should no longer exist.
APRIL 8 The U. S. S. Gem
of the Sea today seized the blockade
running British schooner Maggie
Fulton off Indian River Inlet. I
am confident, the Federals claim
that no vessels have run in or
out of either Jupiter or Indian
River Inlets since the 6th of March
1863. Their boats are in the
river whenever the bar will permit
them to cross.
APRIL 9 The Georgia General
Assembly is debating a bill which
would restrict the planting of cotton
and Governor Brown of that state
has asked Governor Milton of
Florida to persuade his
Legislature to do the same. Much
pressure is being exerted upon
Milton to call a special session

of the Legislature to pass such an
act. Public meetings have been
held in several Florida Counties
during the last few weeks and
petitions were forwarded to Talla Tallahassee
hassee Tallahassee supporting such a move.
Public opinion seems to be in favor
of regulating cotton planting.
Milton is against calling the
legislature into session,
contending that the session of 1862
discussed this problem at length
and defeated a proposal for that
purpose. He also says that even if
the General Assembly met, it would
be too late to stop those planters
who are determined td'pl&nt cotton
because of the early planting
season in Florida.
An armed boat expedition of
sailors and marines under Acting
Lieutenant McCauley, U. S.S.Fort
Henry, reconnoitered the Bay Port
area a few days ago. The boats
stood in for Bay Port on the evening
of the 2nd arriving off the city
the next morning. The first launch,
exhibiting the sluggish qualities
that were to be trying throughout
the reconnaissance, slowed the
expeditions progress through the
intricate channel. This waste of
time, McCauley reported gave
the rebels leisure to make all
preparations for our reception.
Two Confederate sloops and two
small schooners were run into a
bayou and grounded in an effort
to prevent their destruction by the
naval force. The sloop Helen was
captured south of the harbor and
destroyed with her cargo of corn.
The Union boat crews engaged and
forced the evacuation of a defending
Confederate battery. The Confed Confederates
erates Confederates burned a schooner with
cargo of cotton that was too large
to be moved inland. McCauley
reported: Having gained my
object in her destruction and the
clearing of the battery, the dis disabling

unwieldiness of the first launch,

Governor Brown of Georgia, Gov Governor
ernor Governor Milton explains why he did
not call the Florida legislature
into special session for the purpose
of securing legislation to prohibit

plant cotton. First of all, he says,
by the time such legislation could

WASHINGTON (UPI) -Pres. John F. Kennedy unleashed a right

Kennedys ceremonial opening pitch was wide to the left and
low. Washington catcher Ken Retzer snagged it with his bare hand
only a few inches from the ground.

The secret, of course, is depth.
I think weve got plenty of it this
