Groundbreaking for the $5

the Florida Union, said yesterday.
Complete with a large
auditorium, a cafeteria seating 600

to McCarty Hall.
Rion said the cafeteria-snack

The second floor will house the
auditorium and a 350-seat movie

The Date Ticket >
More than a little anger has been generated by the unprecedented
raise in the price of date-tickets for the Homecoming game.
It is not one of those issues where the good guys are clearly marked
with a big G, and the bad guys wear heavy mustaches. There are
elements of right and wrong on either side.
It would be easy to attack the Athletic Association, which makes a
great deal of mdney and which can spend that money pretty much as it
sees fit. One could argue that the association, and those who benefit
from its money-making activities, can easily spare what is usually
lost at Homecoming time.
But the Athletic Association cannot be justly blamed for objecting
to students who take advantage of a special service originated for the
students benefit. Biting the hand that feeds you is not the noblest ex expression
pression expression of gratitude.
On the other hand, while it would be just as easy to condemn the
cheating students as to attack the Athletic Association, the students
are not entirely moral lepers. For one thing, the percentage who
smuggle in out-of-town visitors in dates clothing is low. For another,
even those who do cheat have a variety of reasonably acceptable
excuses: social pressure, financial necessity,custom sanctified by
So the blame lies on both sides -- or, perhaps, neither.
The blow falls hardest, as usual, upon the innocent bystander; the
students who never cheat, but who now must pay the penalty along with
those who do; the married students whose wives or husbands are not
enrolled, and who can ill-afford the price hike.
Because of that fact, we suggest that the Athletic Association
vreconsider its decision. It can afford to be magnanimous, and it has
ifmade a necessary point. There may be away to prohibit transferral
of those officially non-transferable little tickets. We believe the method
now proposed works too many unjust hardships to be worthwhile.
Here She Is
Well, fans of beeutee and glammer, here she is again -- Miss
America. (Trumpet flourishes, wild cheers, a lone baby crying
somewhere amid the confusion.)
Yes, the familiar cycle has been completed yet again; the world
can return now to more mundane matters test bans, border
skirmishes, government scandals and so on, ho-hum.
We didnt see the ceremonies, but well offer 20-to-l odds that the
lovely victress burst into Tears of Joy and Refused To Believe it.
It always happens in the ritual that is as formalized as a Japanese
Kabuki play.
Miss America 1964, 21-year-old Donna Axum of Arkansas, is
beautiful, talented, charming, and religious. What more could the
Pepsi Cola folks (one of her sponsors) ask?
But what was it that lifted her above all those other beautiful,
talented, charming, and (probably) religious princesses who lost?
Its just a guess, but we believe it was her possession of that unique
American virtue, averageness.
Averageness. Despite all her fame and fortune, shes still basically
a simple, unassuming, wholesome, girl-next-door. Despite the fact
that shes just become the idol of every female from 13 to 29 in the
United States, her views on life and love are just as unimaginative as
the next gal's.
In one of her initial interviews after the pageant, the new symbol
of American femininity divulged the following personal information:
Her favorite female film star is Doris Day, who reflects all-
American womanhood. ~
She pleaded the Fifth Amendment on the subject of Elizabeth Taylor.
(But we know what shed like to say, don't we?)
She didnt leave anything to cnance when she came to Atlantic City.
With, her were three good luck charms: a bone from a rabbits foot,
a penny in an empty purse, and a penny in her shoe.
Her requirements for a husband are a wonderful sense of humor
hed have to put up with me ambition, and be a Christian gentle gentleman
man gentleman who would love me and want a home.
Shes a terrible cook. But Im awfully good at boiling water,
she adds. Her favorite foods include (brace yourself) fried okra and
turnip greens like mother cooks.
And her favorite sport is swimming.
Just for tne record, wed like to offer our own candidate for the next
Miss America contest. She would have to be designated a contestant contestantat-large,
at-large, contestantat-large, chiefly because no state would have her as its representative.
Our entry would be around six-foot-four, with a large adams apple.
Her voice would be hoarse and she would mumble when she spoke.
She would have absolutely no talent of any sort whatever. At least
one of her teeth would be missing.
Her ideal husband would be a 75-year-old millionaire with a history
of heart attacks. Her favorite screen star would be (of course) Liz
Taylor,- because she reflects all-American womanhoods secret
ambition -- to make headlines by getting the best of some poor
sucker of a man.
When she won (as she surely would) she wouldn't be surprised at
all. Her first words would be, When do I start collecting?
She might not be as inoffensive as the usual run of Misses America.
She might not make the Pepsi people very happy.
But she would, at least, be interesting. : ,. ^

Inconsistencies Keep Arising

Last spring, if you remember
back that far, one of the big issues
which hit the campus was that which
protested the scheduling of final
exams on Good Friday and the
virtual extinction of the observance
of Easter on campus due to the
sandwiching of exams around that
day of religious observance.
As the trimester wore on,
gradually the Administration came
1 JJ Os The Gator Staff
to make certain alterations in their
schedule so to eliminate finals on
Good Friday ana allow students to
observe that Holy Day.
This fall we are again faced
by problems which, while not
religious in nature, at least
somewhat parallel last springs
Easter crisis.
Now, normally, this trimester
we would be blessed under the
present trimester scheme of things
with one genuine holiday before
the two-week Christmas break --
namely Thanksgiving. But, we
discovered last week that, of all
things, the FSU football game had
been scheduled for the Thanks Thanksgiving
giving Thanksgiving weekend this fall. Now,
we're not saying that this
is necessarily an evil, but it seems
somewhat peculiar that the only
student holiday just happens to
coincide with the final football
game. The result? Many UF
students, intent upon seeing the
always-spirited FSU Florida
game, will elect to spend at least
a part, if not all, of their Turkey
Day holiday in Gainesville.
Os course, you say, the students
dont HAVE to attend the game.
Thats true. They can elect to
stay at home if they like. But
how many Gator followers will
stay away from a game which year
after year creates so much excite excitement
ment excitement on campus and which
possesses so much interschool
Now, I ask, couldn't the
Administration and the Athletic
Director of this fair university
have huddled together sometime in
the far distant past and decided
on some date for the FSU game
which would allow UF students to
get the most out of their only
trimester holiday? But, perhaps
it is too much to ask for such
Case two: always in the past
the price for date tickets tor home

games at Florida Field has been
$2.50. Suddenly, we find that the
price for date tickets to attend the
LSU UF homecoming game has
skyrocketed doubling to a full
$5 incidentally, the exact price
for visitors reserved tickets for
the same game.
The question now might logically
be whats the Use to have date
tickets at all if youre going to
adjust and readjust the prices of
certain tickets to make a big
killing for a game which is
assured to pull in abig crowd. Next
thing on tap, perhaps, is $5 date
tickets all year round.
A few years ago a somewhat
similar situation occurred
on campus in which the Athletic
Department tried to move the dead deadline

up so that a student had to have
his date ticket reserved two weeks
prior to the big game.

These are but two of the

Perhaps, with pressure here and

Fixing Up The Dorm Room
Can Be A Real Challenne

Editors Note: This is the third
of a series of five articles written
especially for the young lady in
her first year in college this
fall. Today: Roometiquette.
Fixing up that college dormitory
room may be as simple as matching
up bedspreads,or it may be the
interior decorating feat of the year.
But it will be a fun-type challenge
that you and your roommate will
want to tackle together, or maybe
youve already started.
If it looks like you two have
drawn the worst room on campus
dont be disheartened. You can
have your neighbors green-eyed
with a little imagination.
If it seems a little drab, brighten
it up with light-colored easy easyto-care-for
to-care-for easyto-care-for spreads and window
curtains. The tailored types will
probably be the most practical.
Then let your creative talents
run wild. You can add a touch of
the outdoors with a small green
plant, a dash of color with throw
pillows and stuffed animals and
cozy warmth with a brightly
colored throw rug.
Bulletin boards and fish nets
are good catch-alls for such
valuable freshman souvenirs as
old ticket stubs, dance programs
and corsages with extra special
meaning. And they're attractive
wall decorations.
Brightly colored art.
reproductions add to your decor
and can be picked up in dime
stores and shops on the campus
perimeter for practically nothing.
And if its a conversation piece
you want, frame a couple of your
baby sisters finger paintings.
Probably the most important
factor in the appearance of any
room, no matter what youve done

Students Cheating
Caused Price-Hike

The story to the right of this tells it: Date tickets for Homecoming
will be five clams even for the wives of UF students.
We here can see the Athletic" Departments view quite clearly. We
talked to Coach Percy Beard at some length in writing the story and
his No. 1 reason for the price hike we can accept.
He said in effect that too many students were cheating on
their picture I.D. cards by getting half-price date tickets for people
other than someone in whom you have a romantic interest (i.e. mother,
father, friend, or fraternity alumni). Please note, the word cheat
is ours,' not Beards. But he did admit thats about what it amounts
to in the Athletic Departments opinion because as he pointed out,
The cards are not transferable.
We agree that too many students cheat on the use of their I. D. cards.
We know because we have been guilty of the same crime.
But let us pose a question. Is it any different if you bring your girl
to a game and pay $2.50 for her ticket then if you brought your dear
sweet mother? This is where the disagreement lies.
The powers that be in the Athletic Department say, Yes, there is
a difference. One is legal and one is illegal. L
We, being only a lowly Florida Man which probably doesnt amount
to much but of which we are quite proud, say, No. Its the same
Every student pays $-113 and it is part of this money that buys him
his seat at every home game and also buys him the privilege as a
student to have a guest at half price. Hence, the date ticket.
To our way of thinking, whether or not the student has a romantic
interest in his guest or not is immaterial and none of the Athletic
Departments business.
But they have said, by this price-hike at Homecoming, that you
should have a romantic interest in your guest so they can legally be
called a date and that the failure to do this has resulted in cheating
on the tickets.
And so the student pays again and justice reigns supreme over the
The end of another story. Or is it?
Is it, Student Government? Is it, Interfraternity Council? The
answer to that question is up to you.
Ready For Betty OR Tech
The Gators are ready. Mark our words, they are ready for Betty
OR G§ Ttlese words may have to be eaten and theyre not flowing out of
the cup of kindness or overly-sentimental school spirit. Theyre being
said because they are true.

SG Up In Arms Over
Hike In HC Tickets

Sports Editor
Date tickets for the Homecoming
football game with Louisiana State
will cost twice as much this year
and UF students, led by Student
Body Pres. Paul Hendrick, are up
in arms about the price hike.
It really burns me up,
Hendrick said yesterday. It was
just sprung on the students with no
warning at all.
The price now up to $5 instead
of the previous $2.50 -- will only
affect the Homecoming game.
Assistant athletic director
Percy Beard told The Alligator
We just had to do something. It

was getting way out of control.
the number of date tickets sold
for the Homecoming game in past
years had gotten way out of line
with the other games. More than
5,000 date tickets were sold at
last y ea rs homecoming game,
compared to the 1,500 average
sales for the other games.
Were one of the few schools
that still have it (date tickets),
Beard said, But I can see why
the students would resent it being
taken away for one game.
Beard said the decision was

made by the Board of Directors
of the Athletic Association. All
university students are admitted
to games free with their activity
card and are entitled to buy one
date ticket for half except
now for the Homecoming game,
theyre junking a whole program
that had a lot of merit. The athletic
department complains about
alumni not supporting the school.
Well, the students now are going
to be alumni pretty soon.
He also pointed-out that the wives
of students, heretofore admitted
for the $2.50 price, will have to
pay the regular $5 price.
