and SI,OOO in cash.
The achievement places the UF
among 17 other colleges and uni universities
versities universities in the nation cited for the
1963 Alumni Giving Incentive
Award by the American Alumni
Council. Financed by the U. S.
Steel Foundation, the awards
recognize sustained and improved
alumni support.
Honorable mention in the area
in which UF took top place went
to Michigan State University and
Womans College of Georgia.
Georgia Tech led in the sustained
performance category among
public universities, with honorable
mention going to the University of
Colorado, the University of

and Texas A & M.
This is the first time in UF
history that Alumni Association
support efforts have been
nationally recognized with such an
award, said UFs Director of
Alumni Affairs Bill A. Fleming,
who accepted the award here.
When we stop to consider that
the UF is one of 18 to be recognized
for its annual giving program from
among some 2,000 college and
universities making similar fund
raising efforts, the significance
of this distinction comes sharply
into focus/ he said.
It reflects a growing aware awareness
ness awareness by alumni and other
supporters of the UF that voluntary
financial support is necessary to
take care of so many needs such
as the Dollars for Scholars project
that legislative appropriations can
never provide.'*
He said this awareness is
confirmed by the 8,200 alumni who
contributed to last years fund,
giving the UF a percentage of
participation that was among the
highest of all publicly supported

communists there then we may
as well say goodbye to our hopes
and pledges for the rest of this
Whatever we might gain in
the short run from a settlement
from Castro, he said, will be
just about as useful as what we
gained in Laos. Communists never
have and never will abide by treaty
agreements to cease subversion
and respect the wishes of the
majority of the people.
Keating quoted Castros analysis
of the U. S. policy over the last
two years where Castro argued
that the U.S. has failed continuely
whereas Castro has won in the
fight over Cuba.
Those who suggest negotiations
with the Castro regime today are
in effect accepting Fidel Castros
argument. They are admitting that
a communist dictator in a small

able to carry out his will than the
United States of America.
He continued, if we persist in
seeking agreement with Castro on
his terms, we will be advertising
to the entire world the impotence
of our policy.
The impact of that realization
in Latin America and around the
world does not sink in im mediately.
It does not have the sudden mo momentous

wet or dry
GAINESVILLE IS HUMMING to the tune of Wet or Dry and voter
registration has risen to an unusual height for this time of year.
The Alachua County Supervisor of Voter Registration reports that
large numbers of young people have registered as voters during
the past week. Although it cannot be said with certainty that the
large numbers of young people are University of Florida students,
certainly more students than usual are registering to vote in this
Opposition to the movement to wet the county has lost no time
in forming. Four churches have come out against returning the
petitions mailed to the countys 25,000 voters last week by the Gaines Gainesville
ville Gainesville Motel Association. University President J. Wayne Reitz came
out against the election Sunday saying, the arguments advanced by
the Gainesville Motel Owners Association in favor of holding the
election are unsupported by facts.
UNIVERSITY STUDENTS will be one of the first groups to recognize
that Alachua County is far from dry. The nearness of wet
counties and the abundance of transportation at the University of
Florida enables most students, barring insufficient funds, to drink
as much, or almost as much as they want to. And, many students,
not wanting to make the booze run content themselves with 3.2
Many of those in favor of wetting the county say students, and
others, simply go out of the county for liquor when they want it,
and keeping Alachua dry does little to keep people from drinking.
They add that the very danger of drunken driving between here
and the county line is almost enough justification to let liquor in.
The last part of the argument is weak. . drunken drivers can be
killed anywhere. . and a drunken pedestrian can die just as quickly
on University Avenue as he can on Highway 441.
THE FIRST PART of the argument is a little more valid. When
people want to drink they will* When people dont want to drink they
The Motel Association says a wet county will attract more
business to the area. Opponents of the petition say it wont.
Proponents of drinking say liquor isnt immoral and doesnt lead
to wholesale sin, opponents of the plan says it is and does.
WET OR DRY is a moral question. Wet or dry is an ethical
question. Wet or dry demands careful consideration.
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA students are naturally interested in
this question. Many of those eligible to vote on this question will
want to register, if they have not, and cast their ballot.
And vote is what people should do. Voting is the agreed upon method
in this country of settling questions. Those truly interested in the
problem, wet-side or dry-side, should let their opinions be known by
returning the petition, or by voting, if it comes to that.
know your stand
IN 1956 WHEN AUTHERINE LUCY, a Negro, enrolled at the
University of Alabama, student David Kirk wrote novelist William
Faulkner and asked hiip what Southern students could do to meet
desegregation and its problem.
Faulkner replied from his home in Oxford, Miss. Last month
Faulkners reply was published for the first time by the Crimson
and White, the University of Alabama newspaper. It also appeared
in the National observer.
Exerpts are reprinted here.
Dear Mr. Kirk;
... I have found that the greatest help in meeting any problem with
decency and self-respect and whatever courage is demanded, is to
know where you yourself stand, that is, to have in words what you
believe and are acting from.
Segregation is going, whether we like it or not. We no longer have
any choice between segregation or unsegregation. The only choice
we have is, how, by what means. That is, shall segregation be
abolished by force, from outside our country, despite everything we
can do; or shall it be abolished by choice by us in the South who will
have to bear the burden of it, before it is forced upon us.
... I CAN THINK OF NOTHING which would do more to hold
Intact integrity and decency and sanity in this matter, than a sort
of interstate university organization for simple decency and ration rationality
ality rationality among Southern college men and women. A confederation of
older men like me would not carry half this weight.
I can Imagine nothing which would carry more weight than a sane,
sober uaion of student representatives from all the Southern schools,
standing for the simple things which democracy means and which
we have got to show the world that we do mean if we are to survive,
the simple principles of due process of the majority will and desire
based on decency and fairness to all as ratified by law.
THIS MAY BE DIFFICULT at first. It is a sad commentary on
human nature that it is much easier, simpler, much more fun and
excitement to be against something you can see, like a black skin,
than to be for something you can only believe in as a principle, like
justice and fairness and (in the long view) the continuation of individual
freedom and liberty.
And remember this too, when you have to meet these individual
problems; You will be dealing with cowards. Most segregationists
are afraid of something, possibly Negroes; I dont know. But they
seem to function only as mobs, and mobs are always afraid of some something,
thing, something, of something they doubt their ability to cope with singly and in
daylight. .

Original Peel Not a Spirit

Dear Mr. Dixon:
In your hysterical defense of
your Old Orange Peel you use the
same sideways reasoning youve
used in justifying your use of the
name Orange Peel. You simply
repeat the argument you made in
your parable of The oracle and
skirt the real issue by attacking
me as an egotist. That was your
suggestion, not* mine.
The difference I wrote of between
the original Peel and yours as
you must know but choose to
ignore is one of purpose.
The original was not designed
as a commercial venture. Only
in 1958 did it begin charging for
each issue. It was self-supporting
in its PURPOSE of serving the
students who owned it. Only
incidentally did it earn a profit
(which went back into publications)
in its latter days. Yes, I got a
salary, but as you point out, I
was not the magazine.
Clandestine Publishing Company
I hope youll admit, operates pri primarily
marily primarily 'bn a profit motive, your
claims oi serving as high priests
to a mystic spirit of undergraduate
satire notwithstanding. Your letter

publications youve planned under


Negro Is Being Deceived

The situation seems grave. I
do not know whether it is only
the appearance, or whether it is a
deep penetrating view.
The Negro is being deceived,
and is being deceived by
his friends. Leaders rouse him to
think and to act as if freedom is
the golden key which unlocks the
treasure chest of life; a key which
most non-colored seem to possess.
The unfortunate truth is that if
every Negro turned white, ten
years from now his masses would
still crowd the slum districts.
In order to rise today it takes
education; education takes help

thing is that as the wretchedness
of the Negros life becomes worse,
the more he is consumed by
ideas of freedom. The Negro is
like the man who is sinking in
quicksand, realizes that when he
reaches bottom he Will be dead
and so prays that the bottom is
very deep.
The Negro realizes without
freedom his position is static,
but fails to grasp that even with
all the freedom in the world,
innumerable inherent conditions
are holding him back. There is
no direct relationship between
freedom and living standards but

The fact that I sold my sex

at all to their previous appearance

and demands more.
As an example, in most cities
the school you attend is based on
the sector of the city which you
live in. The Negro in many cases
is demanding exemption from the
rule. Clearly something must be
done for the Negro; But must it
be in the form of freedoms which
will make chaos out of society?
To understand the Negros po position

In this town the Negro is given
all rights and no one has any
animosity towards him. He goes
into a formerly all-white store
and is not served because he has
no money. He goes to an employ employment

but there are none because he only
went half-way through high school.
Os what value is a library to a
Negro who cant read? Os what
value is it for the Negro and white
to meet on common ground when,
while the white is well dressed,
the clothes are rotting off the
Negros back? What good is
freedom to a cripple? The Negro
has been wrongly held back for
the last 100 years, but no matter
how wrong, it doesn't change his
present position.
It took a hundred years to lower
the Negro to the bottom of the
hole he is in and all the freedom
in the world only makes the hole
larger, what the Negro needs to
do is pull up his sleeves and pull
himself out.
He needs friends who talk not
of freedom but of algebra and
hygiene. The stew of life calls for
only a pinch of freedom, but quarts

the Negro has so much work to
accomplish on himself, he Is being

Serpent in the Garden
Poses Summer Threat

The serpent in the garden is a
threat more real to Americans
than perhaps anyone realizes. He
may he a coral snake or a
moccasin or rattler, but the
chances are that hell cause more
trouble in the back yard this
summer than he has ever caused
in the backwoods.
If this year is like most others,
many people will be bitten by
snakes in the coming months, with
children the most frequent victims.
They will probably be bitten while
running barefoot not far from their
probably no subject has
associated with it more folklore
and less hard fact than snakebite.
Nearly everyone can tell you when
snakes will bite and when they wont
where they are found and where
they arent, what to do and what
not to do if bitten.
Some of the folklore was once
based on actual experience, but
the tradition has become far
removed from the fact.
One big step toward filling this
information vacuum was the pub publication
lication publication this month of the Florida
Medical Association Journal,
devoted almost entirely to snake snakebite.
bite. snakebite.
A major contributor to this
seriesthe first time that the
journal has devoted an issue to a
single medical problemwas Dr.
Joseph F. Gennaro, Jr., assistant
professor of anatomy at the UF
College of Medicine.
Dr. Gennaro is in the midst of
an intensive study about the nature
of snakebites, both the mechanism
of their production and the effects
on the victims. He brings into focus
some of the best available infor information
mation information on the subject of snakebite
adding to it his own experience
in the laboratory and replacing
folklore with facts.
There are two kinds of snake
we have to worry about in North
America, so far as the poisonous
bite is concerned, he points out.
One is the pit viper family, which
includes the rattlesnakes and
moccasins and is a comparatively
recent development in the animal
The other dangerous snake
family is the elapidae, which, in
the United States, is represented
by the coral snake. It comes from
a much older family tree. The main
distinction between the two kinds
of snake is this: While the coral
snake has a much more poisonous
venom than the rattlesnake, he has
a very inefficient means of
delivering it to his victim.
The less potent rattlesnake
venom, on the other hand, is
injected under the skin through a
very effective tooth and poison
gland system that resembles a
good hypodermic needle.
Although information on snake snakebite
bite snakebite in general is poor in this
country, rattlesnakes are well wellcovered
covered wellcovered in comparison with coral
snakes which are often dismissed
as a negligible problem.
Its true that the small coral
snake with its tiny mouth and teeth
isnt able to bite a human being
effectively very often, but the fact
remains that when he does get the
venom under the skin, it may well
be fatal, he added.
It is very little consolation to
the fellow who has been bitten by
a coral snake to know that it
doesnt happen very often.
Protection against snakebite
takes many forms, but the most
effective one is to remember not
to walk through woods and fields
with bare feet or ankles.
It is very interesting to notice
the statistics on the seasonal
incidence of snakebite, Dr.
Gennaro said. More people are
tramping through unfamiliar back backwoods
woods backwoods areas during the fall and
winter hunting seasons. But the
greatest number of snakebite
victims are reported in the
summer months, among
youngsters who are playing within
sight of their suburban homes.
Very little is understood about
how the snake venom actually does

...was discovered in a study undertaken by the Med
Center. The coral snake shown above, although it
has a hard time biting a person, is almost always fatal.

damage to the human system. It
is known that coral snake venom,
like that of the cobra and other
Asian varieties, attacks the
nervous system causingparalysis.
The rattlesnakes venom
apparently destroys tissue
and attacks the heart and blood
But, so far, scientists have not
been able to isolate the particular
substance in the venom which does
the damage. They have been able
to show that the snake does not
always bite with the same intensity
but may regulate his bite according
to the size of the victim or the
degree to which he is aroused.
The coral snake, on the other
hand, releases the venom into his
mouth, then must get it into the
victim by gnawing with two tiny
teeth, no larger than needle points.
Because the coral snake bite
often seems like a harmless
scratch, the victim doesn't take it
seriously, Dr. Gennaro said.
Many times, a youngster will
pick up the snake and play with it
for hours without being bitten.
Then the snake will clamp onto a
soft part of the finger long enough
to break the skin.
Scientists disagree on the
effectiveness of various
treatments after a person is bitten.
But nearly all authorities agree
on the necessity of entirely
immobilizing the victim as an
effective way of minimizing the
effects of the venom, Dr.
Gennaro said.
Not only does this slow down
the circulation of the venom to
other parts of the body, but it
actually seems to reduce the
damage at the site of the bite.
The use of suction cups and
sucking out the poison by mouth,
after making a cut at the point
of the bite, appears to be effective
in removing a significant amount
of venom, studies showed. Dr.
Gennaro pointed out that it is
wise to wait two or three minutes
to see whether any swelling occurs.
If it does, it is time enough to
make an incision and try to with withdraw
draw withdraw the venom.
Experiments show that the value
of suction is within the first 15
to 20 minutes after it is applied.
Research Prof
Goes to Europe
Dr. Edward R,Garrett, graduate
research professor in the College
of pharmacy will go to Europe
at the end of this week to present
the results of his research on drug
distribution and stability before
several professional groups.
Among the meetings he will
attend is the International
Congress for Chemotherapy in

A minority of persons will have
adverse reactions to the serum,
and it should never be administered
as first-aid, but only by a physician
who is prepared to cope with the
allergic reaction if it should
occur, Dr. Gennaro said.

Tape Texts Assist

ST. PAUL, Minn. (UPI) More

Services For The Blind and the
Hamm Foundation, a St. Paul
philanthropic organization.
The projects first university

Minneapolis. Her textbooks
during most of her University of
Minnesota career were hundreds

The program was undertaken
four years ago when several
blind students who had been using
recorders suggested that textbooks
be read into tape. They thought
this would be easier,, to handle
than disc and live
readers werent around when
So volunteer readers began
putting textbooks into tape.
When Miss Goudle wanted to
study biology or history, for
instance, she would borrow a tape
textbook from the library and play
it on her recorder.
She took notes from the text textbooks

I am not in sympathy with that viewpoint, but Brian Sternberg, a
sophomore at the University of Washington is. He has only broken
the worlds record three times this season and holds the currently
pending mark of 16-8. He has said on a number of occasions that
Cornelius Warmerdan is the best ever because he cleared heights
that others using the bamboo pole still have not approached.
Sternberg is, as many writers pointed out, a gymnast. This past
week, he was critically injured in a trampoline accident and may be
permanently paralyzed as a result. He has always been very modest,
in the press/and praised his fellow vaulters, such as John Pennell.
It is a shame that this accident had to happen, but John Thomas, our
foremost high jumper, was injured in a freak elevator accident as a
sophomore and thought never to be able to walk properly again.
I hope that Sternberg similarly recovers, as the world of sports
can always use such a talented, humble person.

For the fifth in a series of
isometric exercises, we try the
bench press.
In trying the bench press with
weights, particularly by yourself,
you can run into trouble and could
kill yourself if the weights fell.
With isometrics, there is nothing
to fall, hence it is very safe.
You can use a rope, tied into
one continuous piece or stand with
your back to one side of a door doorframe
frame doorframe and hold a pipe against
the other or just place your hands
on it.
With the rope, place it around
your back so that your arms can
not be straightened fully in front
of you. In either case, try to
straighten your arms. Th's will
greatly strengthen your arms and
shoulders and will expand your
chest somewhat if you employ
deep breathing as an aid.
Try to vary the length of rope
in order to get different angles in
your arms. This is one reason why
a rope is better than a doorframe.
If you procure a piece of rope,
you can use it for many other
exercises which will be mentioned
later as well as ones which you
think-up yourself.

Gators First Foe
Tough Ga. Tech

Lets take a look at our first
opponent, Georgia Tech. What are
their strong points and
In the first place, the Yellow
Jackets are the complete reverse
of the Gators. Their strong points
are at end and in the backfield.
Georgia Tech has some of the
best ends in the conference, lead
by Billy Martin, 6-5 and weighing
235 lbs. Some of you will remember
that he caught the touchdown pass
that broke our backs last year.
As a pass receiver, in my esti estimgtion,
mgtion, estimgtion, he has the best hands in
the conference.
The second end on the Georgia
Tech squad is Ted Davis. He is
another small end at 6-2 and
weighing 225. Davis is the best
all around end of thd two, but
not very spectacular. I played
across the line from Davis last
year, and in my personal opinion
he was the best defending and
blocking end we played all year.
Georgia Techs backfield, says
Bobby Dodd, should be pretty good.
In my book, if Bobby Dodd says
he has a good backfield coming
up, hes got a great backfield
coming. The top back in Coach
Dodds arsenal is Billy
Lothridge, Mister Everything.
You know that touchdown pass Billy
Martin caught that broke our back,
well, it was thrown by Lothridge.
Both were team mates in high
school, and are very close. In a
passing situation, Lothridge will
throw to Martin 50% of the time.
The rest of the backfield is
talented, not real big, bqt fast.
Lothridge is. the key to Techs
hopes. If he comes through,
Georgia Tech will do well, and
vice -versa. Hes also an
All-American candidate.
Their interior line will be of
the unknown quality. I said unknown
not weak or a push-over.

Inside Report

Staff Writer

The kicking games should be
equal, along with the passing. I
feel we may be a little stronger
with our running, with our
superiority in the line. Defense
might be tilted in favor of Georgia
Tech. The more I think about the
game, the more I wish I could
watch the game on television. You
know, where I'll be, people will
keep getting in the way of the
action. Its hard watching the game
from a prone position.

Widely Respected
Coach and Athlete
Coach Percy Beard has been
elected to the Helms Foundation
Track Hall of Fame. This honor
has been bestowed on him for his
outstanding career in track, both
as a star and coach.
Only two other coaches in the
SEC are members, Wilbur Huttsill,
hi s own coach at Auburn who
retired this year and Red Drew
of Alabana. Drew was elected
along with Beard this. year.
Beard, a native Kentuckian, had
never participated in athletics be before
fore before entering college. He was the
only boy in his high school
graduating class of six. In fact,
the only organized sport he had
seen was baseball.
After he arrived at Auburn, he
became interested in track and
during his final two years, he lost
only two dual meet races. After
he graduated, he ran four outdoor
and five indoor seasons with the
New York Athletic Club and lost
only one indoor race during that
At the national AAU meet in
1931, Beard set the world record
for the 120 yard high hurdles in
the time of 14.2 seconds. Five
years later, he repeated the
distance in the same time. He
was second in the 1932 Olympics.
While on a European tour with
the National AAU team, he se,t
the Worlds record for the 110-
meter high hurdles. In 1934, beard
held the world record for the 110
meter high hurdles, 120 yard high
hurdles, the 70 yard indoor, the
60 yard indoor and the 6t meter
indoor high hurdles.
In 1959, Coach Beard was
selected to be one of the coaches
of the Uiiited States team in the
Pan American Games, was
a member of the Olympic Track
and Field Committee to select
the U. S. Olympic Team, and was
reappointed for 1964.

During the years, he has
constantly innovated new track
equipment such as the concrete
shot and discus rings, the rub rubberized
berized rubberized -ashphalt track and
runways for jumping events, and
other refinements.
The All-Star game was
won 5-3 by the National
League. WilJie Mays was
the outstanding player.

Girls 220 Record
Shirley Wilson of the Compton,
Calif., Track Club set an American
girls record of 24.5 seconds for
the 220 yard dash last week.
Her mark, set in the semjfipals
of the National AAU Championship
meet for women, erased the 25
flat mark of Norma Harris set
in 1962. Miss Harris also bettered
her old time in winning her heat in
