conversations over a soft
drink or cup of coffee in
the Campus Club.

Staff Writer*
(Second In A Series)
UF foreign students note many
differences in the American way
of life and life on this campus in
In a random sampling of students
from all over the globe, the Alli Alligator
gator Alligator found that students aspects,
view points, and comparisons
between life in the United States
and life in their country differ:
On the political situation;
According to Claude Georges, 2UC,
from France some feel that the
American students are not as well
informed about their own country
as they ought to be, and they lack
interest in other countries and
other students around the world.
Most Cubans feel that Americans
are not as worried about their
country as they should be. They
are deeply concerned about the
political events in their homeland.
Other students assert that the
American is ignorant of what his
government is doing.
Yet, the majority praise the
freedom and democracy of the
United States highly.
Alberto Laverde, 2UC from
Columbia says, It is a wonderful
opportunity to study here. You
cannot find elsewhere the
democracy there is here...
freedom of almost everything."
On the economic situation: Most
foreign students admire the high
standard of living in America and
the prosperity of the country. They
feel that Americans are not
extravagant; in fact, they think
it is wonderful that the people
have so much money to spend.
If you can afford it, it is fine,
one student commented.
American students are econo economical
mical economical and practical not
extravagant. The students work
their way through college and know
the value of a dollar. In my
country students depend on their
parents to put them through
school," says Retsuko Hirasawa,
7AS, from Japan.
One of the big differences of
life in America the foreign student
readily notices is the number of
cars students haver here.
Another aspect foreign students
note is the tax system. People
work hard here, then their money
goes to taxes. What you take home
is not really what you earn," says
Mufid Samara, SEG from Lebanon.
On social life: In this country,
foreign students say students are
more independent, and have more
liberty to be on their own. They
feel the girls have a great deal
less restrictions here.
The greatest change for South
and Latin American students is
the absence of a chaperone. When

a girl goes out with a boy, her
mother or an old maiden aunt
goes along," Viviem Diaz, 2 UC
FROM Cuba says.
In other countries, there is
limited or no dating at all until
a certain age or unfil the parents
decide upon aproper mate for their
Foreign students feel that there
is some superficiality'in the open
affection displayed on the
American campuses. One
commented on the girls dorms
PDA rulings.
Although several foreign
students date Americans, others
feel they have more in common
with those from their same country
or section of the world.
On the educational system and
preparation for it: Most of the
students praise UF sky-high, yet
do not hesitate to tell about their
own schools in their own countries.
The students feel they are
generally well prepared for the
work except perhaps in Ameri American
can American History or American
Institutions courses.
Several of the students feel that
their high school background has
been as broad or even broader than
in the United States.
"We concentrate in no one field.
We take many different courses,
and have no electives," one foreign
student said.
Graduate students also find their
main problems in specialization
Foreign students find they must
study hard to keep up with the
work. Yet, they find that the
teachers are most helpful and
Several students note that their
is a much closer student T facuity

students note that this is a black
spot on the country.

dents. students. It is not only a domestic
problem, but a political one on
the world scene as well," agroup
of foreign students agreed.
Yet many are unaware of the
problem. "Many foreign students
are not affected by it. Yet, we
consider it a great injustice. We
are not used to seeing discrimin discrimination
ation discrimination of this sort. People should
be treated as individuals, for what
they are, not for the color of their
skin," said Alberto Laverde.
On customs: Most of the students
that have certain religious or
cultural traditions find it
impossible to continue them here
or else do not want to.
Still, those who want to observe,
manage to do so.

Alumni Map Plans
To 'Educate' State

Staff Writer
An alumni education
campaign with a new approach to
seeking contributions for the
Loyalty Fund will begin this spring.
Alumni Affairs Assistant
Director Alvin V. Alsobrook said
yesterday a strong personal personalcontact
contact personalcontact campaign will start in May
to show alumni they are making
an investment in the UF and higher
education in the state rather than
joining a club.
A smaller and smaller portion
of the money for higher education
is coming from the state, he
said, Consequently outside help
is needed. When we approach big
companies like General Electric
and Sperry, for help they ask
What do the alumni do? and if
the alumni are active the company
will gladly help, if not, they wont.!
The alumni must show interest
if they hope to help the UF grow,
he said.
More than 8,000 of the 32,000
alumni have contributed to the fund
for continuing the work of the
Actually we have one of the
Food Service
To Keep Open
3 Cafeterias
The UF Food Service will open
Rawlings, Tolbert, the main cafe cafeteria
teria cafeteria and possibly the Florida
Room and Coed Club during the
summer and spring trimesters.
If Rawlings is unable to accomo accomodate
date accomodate all the students, the Bro Broward
ward Broward Coed Club will be opened.
The Florida Room will be opened
1118 and possibly IIIA trimesters.
Expansion is planned for the
Tolbert Cafeteria. If the plans
are carried out this summer, Tol Tolbert
bert Tolbert will be closed and Graham
will be opened in its place.
The main cafeteria will be closed
for repairs and major equipment
changes later this month at which
time the Student Service Center
(HUB) will accomodate students.
Mens dormitories will be :
Muphree, Thomas, Fletcher,
Buckman, Tolbert, and East.
Women's dormitories remaining
open are Yulee, Mallory, Reid
and, for IIIA Southwest Broward
and the East Wing of Jennings.
During 1118 graduate women will
live in the East Wing of Jennings.
Post Office
'A Big Aid
The new UF student post office
apparently is living up to all ex expectations
pectations expectations in solving the problems
encountered at the old on-campus
According to Dell Journigan,
assistant postmaster, there have
been no complaints concerning the
operation of the new off-campus
post office.
Journigan says the parking pro problem
blem problem has been solved and an ample
supply of boxes is on hand. Also
the problems of box rent and mov moving
ing moving adjustments have worked out
he says.
The new building seems to be
a big aid to the people of the
west side of town and we are
very happy with the results of the
switch so far.
Art Exhibition

To Close Friday
The Annual Student Art
Exhibition, sponsored by the UF
Department of Art, will be on
display in Gallery X, Building X,
and Building C, until Friday.
The exhibit is open between 9

finest records of participation, on
a percentage basis, for contri contributions
butions contributions by alumni, Alsobrook
said. Compared with other
universities of equal size, a
national average shows 25 per cent
give to their school, the UF had
32 per cent give last year.
The thing alumni must be made
aware of is the average
contribution is only $lO one of
the lowest in the country, Also Alsobrook
brook Alsobrook said.
The reason for this low figure
is the idea of paying dues to join.
For several years, a dues system
of $5 was used for membership.
In 1955 the Loyalty Fund was
initiated to instill the idea of
showing loyalty to the UF by giving
a minimum of $5, but the does
idea was still there.
Now we are trying to get alumni
to give more, but not for the sake
of just giving money. So much
needs to be done and so much
can be done through Alumni
efforts, Alsobrook said.
The first and foremost ob objective
jective objective of the association is the
Dollars for Scholars drive. The
number of student loans is hoped
to increase through contributions.
Over 3,000 have already been given
with the help of the alumni.
Second, an increase in tlie
volumes and facilities of the
library is scheduled. This can help
make the UF one of the best in
the country, Alsobrook said.
The next goal is the providing
of needed tr .u hing aids and equip equipment.
ment. equipment. Ma things are needed but
because of budget limitations it
is impossible to obtain them, and
the alumni can help in this area,
Alsobrook said.
Alumni who would like to give
their individual school may soon
be able to do so through an anti anticipated
cipated anticipated plan for direct
contributions to thai school through
the Loyalty Fund.
An increase in alumni services
is expected by providing funds for
all non-budgeted areas, Alsobrook
We are not being specific on
any of this yet because it is a
new idea. We will get the money
first, then allocate it, he said.
The story of the educational
job and problems cant be done by
mail or through the alumni clubs,
but must be personal, Alsobrook
In May clubs will be contacted
and people urged to undertake the
drive for the new Loyalty Fund.
Material will be given out and
the story of educational needs will
be presented.
If we can get the people to
understand the concept, the idea,
the job and get them to do it,
we will be on our way to success,
Alsobrook said.

It shows teaching loads in Florida
average 12 course-hours per tri trimester

course-hours at 10 other schools

And, moreover, it was
disclosed the UF would need to

to reach the average staffing rates
at these other schools.

100 Leaders
Meet, Back
College Effort
Staff Writer
Under Palm Beachs blue skies
and waving Palm trees 100 of
Floridas leading citizens met last
week and formalized their decision
to actively work for the Increased
support of higher education in the
Prime goal of the committee is
to get the UF budget request of
$97 million for the 1963-65
biennium approved by the state
legislature now convening in
Tallahassee, according to Raleigh
W. Greene Jr. of St. Petersburg,
newly appointed chairman of the
Florida Council of 100.
Over 80 per cent of our
members are having dally contact
with one or more legislators,
Greene said. Never before have
our legislators received' such
thorough Information qn the needs
of higher education.
UF Pres. J. Wayne Reitz and
several Gainesville citizens,
among them Harold R. Gertner,
are members. The Florida Council
of 100 is a non-profit organization
created in 1961 by Gov. Farris
Bryant for the purpose of studying
the needs of science, industry and
education in Florida.
Gov. Bryant appoints members
from distinguished citizens around
the state to serve on the Council.
At this point we are quite
optimistic about the outcome,
Greene said. The great majority
of the legislators are facing with
considerable courage the problems
Involved in raising more money.
Greene said the legislature
would probably approve the major
portion of Gov. Bryants
recommendation that $250 million
be raised for universitieshalf
through Increased taxes and half
through pay-as-you-spend
It takes time for any substantial
effects to be felt In any large
program which requires the con constructlon
structlon constructlon of buildings and a
campaign to bring top brains
to Florida, Greene said.
But the countrys new appraisal
of Florida which will result when
Florida has established a strong
guiding principle on higher edu education
cation education will have an immediate and
profound effect on the states
standing nationally, Greene said.
The Florida Council of 100 hopes
a positive step can be taken toward
improving university services
such as space research so that
the Cape Canaveral testing ground
will not have to seek Its research
and technical Improvements out outside
side outside Florida.
The council also hopes more
money for higher education will
procure the ratio of 90 per cent
brains and 10 per cent materials
which one outside Industrialist said
Florida needs to hold its own In
the space a§e.
If Florida can share. In the thrill
of placing the American flag on
the moon, the council has predicted
that the state will experience an
economic boom unprecedented In
Its history.
We have made it. known to Gov.
Bryant and the State Board of
Control which is recommending
that the universities budget re requests
quests requests be granted by the legislature
that we are available to take any
action necessary to see that the
needs of higher education are
met, Greene said.
To this end, -Greene said the
council would raise its voices In
the legislative sessions and
bearings In Tallahassee.
Greene said he expected Bryant
would call upon the support of the
council, and added, Well be

The Paper's Aim. AH the new. u:th decency v-

'pressure pills
As final exams approach, so too does the widespread use of stay
awake drugs, on campus.
It is a well-known fact that the use of the so-called drugs increase
in direct proportion to the nearness of that final week of the trimester
the week of final exams. This year will be no different.
Drugs, especially dexedrine (dexiesj, dexamil and benzadrine, as
well as the harmless no-doze tablets and caffein citrate pills
literally flood the campus during this final week, as students
desperately attempt to pull all the stops and cram in last-ditch efforts
to redeem their grade point averages.
The drug problem on campus does exist, as was witnessed by the
discovery of a dexedrine ring earlier in the year.
Keep awake drugs, as they have been called, are frowned upon
by the administration, by most health authorities and by many students
most )f the time. However, when it becomes imperative that the
student must burn the midnigh|oil in order to complete a term paper
due the next morning or to cram for a final exam, health authorities
and personal ethics often take a backseat to a more realistic
approach. The unprepared student is faced with a black-and-white
situation of either staying up and studying or possibly failing that
test the next morning. Stay awake drugs enable the already sleepy
student faced with the bleak reality of another all-night stand with a
path to better comprehension and more effective study. These drugs
keep the student awake, so the student takes the drugs. Its as simple
as that.
THE SOURCES OF THESE drugs are many and are diverse in
nature. Some of the sources can be located and destroyed. Many
cannot. It would probably be very foolish to attempt a ban the
dex campaign; it would be very difficulty to carry such an idealistic
plan to successful completion.
As other college newspapers have voiced before, perhaps the only
practical solution to such a problem as this would be one of
decreasing the amount of pressure which traditionally accompanies
finals week.
THE UF ADMINISTRATION HAS already instituted a policy by
which finals may be waived by instructors. Finals by another name
have also become frequent. The trimester and the accompanying
classes up to the last second before final exams have necessitated
such a move.
Perhaps such a plan, if extended to include more courses would
help solve the problem. Removing drugs from common use on campus
can only be effectively solved by remolding or lessening the pressures
which force the students to rely upon the pills.
ALL OF THESE PRESSURES can never be removed we realize.
Some are in the process of removal today, thanks to some clear
thinking on the part of the UF administration.
Occasional use of the stay-awake drugs causes little, if any,
damage to the system, but excessive use can result in noticeable
damage and the formation of drug-habits. Herein lies the reasoning
employed by some in branding all such drugs potentially harmful.
Abolishing or cracking down on these stay-awake drugs would not
inly be impractical, but also would be completely unrealistic and
perhaps harmful in itself.
FINALS WEEK B traditionally known for the zenith of tension
reached by the study-conscious student. An easing of this last-week
tension perhaps might be accomplisheo. by a decentralization of
finals, a trend back toward the two-week test period employed under
the semester system.
Os course, the problem can never be completely solved. There
would always be lasUminute crammers, even if finals were
extended over a three-week period.
WHATEVER THE SOLUTION, if persons are interested in alleviating"
what might bescalled a minor thorn in the system of higher education,
they must first realize that the root of the problem lies far deeper
than simply abolishing of the drugs. The root lies in the reasons for
using them.

Dedication a Major Factor

I have read with much interest
and sincere appreciation your
recent editorial A Greater
Emphasis dealing with the junior
colleges of Florida. Your editorial
was both insightful and timely.
As you know, the junior college
system in Florida has undergone
a major revolution since 1955 under
the general leadership of Dr.
James L. Wattenbarger, Director
of the Division of Community
Junior Colleges in Tallahassee.
Recent legislative action in stren strengthening

A Southerner Protesting

'Southern Politics Undemocratic

Recently in downtown Gainesville
my path crossed that of a small
Negro boy and his pet, a limping
but cheerful three-legged dog. The
two were well matched, I thought:
a dog handicapped for life by a
missing leg and a boy handicapped
for life by the color of his skin.
Or will he be?
After all, today's South, as this
column has mentioned, is radically
changed from the South that
invented Jim Crow. Is there now
some hope of achieving plain
democracy and simple justice in
There is less hope than there
could and should be, because
Southern politics is inexcusable.
It is rotten. It stinks. The Old
South, hostile to the Negro and
to the city, still dominates the New
South politically because of two
egregious injustices. The first is
legislative misapportionment,
which makes democracy a joke.
The second is Negro disfranchise disfranchisement,
ment, disfranchisement, which denies democracy
Although legislatures are badly
apportioned throughout the nation,
the consequences are perhaps
worse in the South because it is
changing so rapidly. In Tennessee*
where the pioneering Baker vs.
Carr case originated, half the
population gets only 20 per cent
of the seats in the state legislature.
Until recently, South Georgia
peanut plants outvoted Atlanta
But why go so far afield? Our
own legislature is as farcial an
example as any. Last summer the
courts required it to reapportion
itself because 12 per cent of all
Floridians controlled the Senate
and 15 per cent of us elected the
House majority.
Governor Bryant promptly de declared,
clared, declared, These judges . don't
know where they are going. I defy
anyone, anywhere, to tell me what
the courts will approve." Obviously
the governor had never had of
democracy D-E-M-O-C-R-A-
C-Yyou know one person, one
But our fine legislators sat down
by court order and did their duty.
Now it takes 23 per cent of the
people to control the House and
15 per cent to choose the Senate

what somewhat similar to that of the Board
of Control for the Universities,
has added further strength and
leadership to this program.
Throughout the nation Floridas
program of junior colleges is
looked to for emulation and
imitation. The program has now
gone to the point where it enrolls
more students than any other unit
of the total system of higher edu education
cation education in Florida. It is our sincere
hope and objective that the quality
of the offerings will continue to
match the quantity.
One of the most pleasant aspects
of this dramatic development has
been the most cordial relations
with the university system. The
officials of the various universities

Furthermore, the Senate com committess
mittess committess that really decide what
laws Florida gets are run by Pork
Choppers almost exclusively.
Pearce of Palatka, a pecunious
potato planter, heads Finance and
Taxation. Edwards of Irvine con controls
trols controls appropriations.
Red Cross, who lives on a lake
near Melrose and once summoned
police to quiet a party I attended
on that lake (no hard feelings) is
high honcho of the Rules
If these North Florida rustics
were elected democratically, their
unjust control of this state would
be easier to swallow. This brings
up (no double meaning intended)
the second source of Southern
stench--Negro disfranchisement.
Throughout the South only one out
of tour eligible Negroes is regis registered
tered registered to vote, mainly because of
economic pressure and so-called
literacy tests, in Mississippi, the
state is half Negro but the
electorate is 95 per cent white--
which explains Senator Eastland,
but doesn't explain why we call
our nation the leader of the free
To return to our Pork Choppers,
in the 14 North Florida counties
where less than 10 per cent of
the registered voters are Negroes
the population is about 20 per cent
Negro. Less than half of the people
over 21 cast ballots. It would be
a safe bet that not one almighty
Pork Chopper was elected by even
one-third of his constituency.
From this, one might argue that
the percentage of Floridians who

obsolete. Neither it is an
anachronism. These are somewhat
astonishing assertions in the mid midtwentieth
twentieth midtwentieth century, but I have heard
them from many well read and
intelligent Englishmen. They have
not only made these assertions but
have backed them up with quite
formidable arguments. Tradition

on prosperity, etc.
Although not supporting the
monarchists argument, it dows
seem that they have quite as much
right to claim the monarch as the
ultimate source of authority (real
not nominal) as the many
Americans whom I have heard talk
about their constitution with awed
It is also interesting to listen
to an educated Communist defend
his ideology. Millions of Soviets
(who read more books per capita
than any other people in the world)
accept Lenins and Marx's
teachings as the best solution for
the ills of society. Many of them
can give 1m argument sophisticated
enough to reduce most Westerners
to a defense of squeaks and grunts.
These points are ver y obvious
but so often ignored when au ad adherent

his ideology is true for all people,
circumstances and time. I suppose
less fanaticism would be one of
the results of a more detatched
look at the creeds of the world.
Unfortunately, partly because of
poor communications, belief re remains
mains remains largely geographical and
has little to do with empirical
truth. Where it deals with non nonempirical
empirical nonempirical truth it often contradicts
the beliefs of other societies. Since
these truths do so frequently
conflict, perhaps by definition most
of them cannot be true at all.
It would, I think, be rash to
hold that truth is the exclusive
property of the Americans,
British, Russians. It may be rash
to claim that this sort of truth
exists at all. And if this is so it
is certainly not worth fighting over
something that does not exist.

Loves of Dobie Gillis," etc.)
Although my son is u college freshmnn, I am glad to say that
he is still not too old to climb up on my lap and have a heart heartto-heart
to-heart heartto-heart talk when things are troubling him. My boy is enrolled
at Harvard where he is studying to be a fireman. From the
time he was a little tiny baby he always said he wanted to lie
a fireman. Os course, my wife and I believed that he would
eventually grow out of it, but no sir, the little chap never
wavered in his ambition for one minute!
So here he is at Harvard today taking courses in net liolding,
mouth-to-mouth breathing, carlxm tetrachloride, and Dalma Dalmatian
tian Dalmatian dogs. It is a full schedule for the young man, and that, in
fact, is exactly what we talked alxrut when last he climlred
upon my lap.
He complained that every bit of his time is taken up with his
major requirements. He doesnt have so much us one hour a
week to sample any of the fascinating courses outside his major
history, literature, language, science, or any of the thousand
and one things that appeal to his keen young mind.
I am sure that many of you find yourselves in the same
scholastic bind; you are taking so many requirements that you
cant find time for some appealing electives. Therefore, in to todays
days todays column I will forego levity and give you a brief survey in
a subject that is probably not included in your curriculum.
it's Mini ixCM
I have asked the makers of Murll>oro Cigarettes whether I
might employ this column normally a vehicle for innocent
merrimentto pursue this serious end. Os course you may,
crazy kid, they replied kindlily, their grey eyes crinkling at
the corners, their manly mouths twisted in funny little grins.
If you are a Marlboro smokerand what intelligent human
person is not?you would ex|>ect the makers of Marllsiro to
Ik* fine men. And so they arewonderful guys, every man-jack
of themgood, generous, understanding, wise. They are each
tip|H*d with a pure white filter and come in soft pack or Flip-
Top box.*
Hut I digress. We were going to take up a topic you are
probably unable to ewer in your Iwsy academic life. Let us
start with the most basic topic of allanthropology, the study
of man himself.
Man is usually defined as a tool-making animal, but I per personally
sonally personally do not find this definition entirely satisfaotory. Man is
not the only species which makes tools. The simians, for ex example,
ample, example, make monkey wTenches.
Still, when you come to a*really complicated toollike-a
linotype, for instanceyou can lie fairly sure it was made by
Homo sapiens or else a very intelligent tiger. The question one
should ask, therefore, is not who made thle tool, but what did
he do with it.
For example, in a recent excavation in the Olduvai Corge a
large assortment of hominoid fossils was found, all dating back
to the Middle Pleistocene Age. Buried with the fossils was a
number of their artifacts, the most interesting being a black
metal box which emitted a steady beeping sound. Now, of
course, zoologists will tell you that tree frogs make such boxes
which they employ in their mating activities (I cant go into
detail alsmt it in this family newspaper) but the eminent an anthropological
thropological anthropological team, Mr. and Mrs. Walther Sigafoos (both he
and she are named Walther) were convinced that this particular
box was made not by tree frogs but by Neanderthal men. To
prove their point, they switched on the box and out came
television, which, as everyone knows, was the forerunner of fire.
If there is anything more you need to know about anthro anthropology,
pology, anthropology, just climb up on my lap as soon as my son Ifeaves.
