Our Town
(An Editorial)
We know it shouldnt be this way, but it seems as though the
Athletic Association must have its own way once more.
This time its date tickets. In the past its been other things.
For instance, this summer when the association needed funds
for golf course improvements, it went to student government.
Student government said a blunt No to the requestand, yes,
the association finally got its own way.
Frankly, its about time somebody put a stop to the rail railroading
roading railroading shenannigans of the athletic association.
The Alligator has had many calls and many letters in the
past two days about the increase in price of date tickets. We
feel the complaints are justified, particularly in the case of
the student wife who may find out that she cant go to the Home Homecoming
coming Homecoming game simply because the couple hasnt any money.
We understand theres a meeting today between student govern government
ment government leaders and the UF administration. We hope that Messrs.
Hendrick, Wells, Gardner, et al, are mad enough about this
situation to demand a full and just explanation.
Furthermore, its about time the athletic department,
association, etc., learned that the affairs of the University do
not revolve around their particular whims.

Campus Police Plan
Traffic Crackdown

The UF Police Department is
cracking down harder on traffic
violations on campus this fall to
cope with the increased number of
students and automobiles accord according
ing according to the UF Police Department.
The anticipated enrollment of
14,500 students and the expected
registration of nearly 11,000 cars
will necessitate new regulations
and tighter policy, Chief A. L.
Schuler said.
The number of parking spaces
on the UF campus has not kept
pace with the increasing number
of new cars registered accounting
for the necessity of restricted
parking in most of the parking
lots around, the campus, police
For this reason the chief offense
according to Schuler, is parking
out of the area assigned. The
violation comes from failure to
park in the area allowed by the
decal on the car, parking in a
reserved space or parking in a
{, no parking zone.
The chief cause of illegal parking
is ignorance of parking
Those students not familiar with
the regulations should contact the
Police Department Schuler said.
Parking permits are issued for
a given area from the top down

is set and only a certain number

Blood Bank Opens
Membership Drive

A new blood bank membership
program to make blood available
to a member in an emergency
anywhere in the United States was
opened this week to employees
of the Health Center and the UF
through the University Hospital
Blood Bank.
Dr. Samuel P. Martin, Health
Center provost, became the first
family member of the plan as Dr.
John B. Henry, director of the
hospital's blood bank, invited every
UF employee to join the program.
Three basic kind s of
membership are available in the
Blood Assurance Plan of the J.
Hillis Miller Health Center, Henry
The first is an individual plan,
in which the member need contri contribute
bute contribute only one unit (one pint) of
blood to assure all blood needs
for three years.
Under the second plan the
family membership the donation
of one pint of blood assures the
availability of blood for any
member of the donor's immediate
family for a period of one year.
The third alternative is a group
plan, whereby a particular unit
of the UF might acquire protectipn
for all of its member? by estab establishing
lishing establishing an account to cover them.
This would be activated by the
donation of enough units to repre represent

of the group.

Dr. Henry suggested any
employes interested in setting up
a group plan, or anyone who needs
further details on any of the other
plans should call or visit the blood
bank for additional information.
.. L
Under the first two plans
pre-existing conditions requiring
large amounts of blood for
instance, leukemia, hemophilia,
asplas tic anemia and car cardiovascular
diovascular cardiovascular diseases which call
for would not be
covered. These conditions would,
however, be covered for any mem member
ber member of a group plan.
Donors must be at least 21 years
old to donate on their own consent.
Those 18-21 will be permitted to
donate with parents approval.
Blood will not be accepted from
persons under 18.
If an employee wishes to. join
the plan, but is unable to donate
immediately, he may pledge a
unit of blood to be given upon the
call of the blood bank. The blood
bank prefers a number of pledges
be kept in reserve, so limitations
of storage capacity will not limit
the availability of blood.
If a member should need blood
at some other hospital, his credit
can be transferred there, in this
case, the member would be asked
to pay only the hospitals labora laboratory
tory laboratory costs and the cost of actually
administering the blood. He would
not have to pay for the replace replacement

UF deans, directors and
department heads will receive
copies of the basic Blood

form to be filled out and returned

The Florida Alligator Thursday, Sept. 12,1963

Thanks A Lot, But...
Because of enthusiasm, imagination, and hard work on the part
of many people, upwards of 1,500 students will be able to see the
Florida-Georgia Tech game on television, Saturday.
It may not sound like such a great feat at first. After all, anyone
with a TV set can see the game. But although some students may
have TV sets in their off-campus homes, they are not in the majority.
The few commercial sets scattered around the campus cannot
accomodate more than a smattering of those who would like to watch
the battle.
Thanks from the students who will see the game, via either the
large screen in McCarty Auditorium or the 14 sets about McCarty
Hall, should go to:
Former student body vice-president Hugh McArthur, who worked
long hours behind the scenes with the Alligator. The original idea
was his; he implemented it with calls to Jacksonvilles Mayor Haydon
Burns and officials around the campus;
Burns, who contacted Teleprompter Company of New York and
secured permission for use of special equipment for giant-screen
Southeastern Audio Company of Jacksonville, which supplied the
neccessary equipment;
WUFT-TV technicians, who will connect an existing co-axial cable
in McCarty Hall to the giant-screen facilities in the auditorium;
Dr. Kenneth Christiansen, UF educational TV director, who made
arrangements for the technical work to be done.
After so much hard work, it seems a shame t> criticize even a
little bit. However, it seems to us that some criticism is dueto
Because McArthur had his idea as early as Saturday morning; by
that afternoon the neccessary officials had been contacted. Yet it
proved impossible to obtain a giant-screen viewing place larger
than McCarty Auditorium, which can accomodate only 200-250 persons.
The plans at first called for the screen to be set up in Florida
gymnasium, but WUFT engineers said reception conditions there
were unsatisfactory. Equipment neccessary to overcome adverse
lghting problems would have had to be shipped from New York,
ind there was not time.
The decision, however, was not forthcoming until Tuesday, four
lays after the idea was proposed.
Without claiming to be electronics experts, we still believe that
he problem could have been solved one way or another so that a
luch greater number of students might have been able to see the
ame on wide-screen facilities.
Dont look a gift horse in the mouth you say? Why not? In this
ase, a little looking may prove beneficial for future situations of
similar nature.
In other words, in football terms, the students set up the play and
t the ball moving. But when they gave it to the runner who could
ve taken it all the way, only a first down was achieved instead
a touchdown.
The feeling of those students in the know seems to be this; students
anceived the idea and pushed it along in an impressive display of
dtlative and cooperation. When they reached the limits of their
jthority and inventiveness, the idea was turned over to UF officialdom
r completion. The results were less than great.
Someone didn't care enough to run as hard as they could.
3n Dormitory Thieves
With the start of the new trimester, the Campus Police report an
swing in thievery around the dormitories.
Most costly item stolen so far has been a watch valued at more than
00. According to the police, apprehension of student stealers and
covery of stolen goods is very difficult. The job is made even harder
ey say, due to a student aversion to sqealing on their fellows,
incidental information: girls seem more inclined to sticky fingers
more items are reported stolen from the girls dorms than the
ys. But, say the police, it may only be that the boys dont report
erything they lose. i
The point of all this?
Dont leave valuables out where they can be easily seen. Keep doors
deed when nobodys going to be in the room for a while. Dont be
sent minded about your valuables rings left on washstands mean
)ney down the drain.
In other words, dont tempt the potential thief. Studies have shown
xt most collegiate stealing is a spur-of-the-moment proposition.
And, if you know a person who has taken something, let them know
u know. Youll be doing {hem a favor, because otherwise, theyre
ely to keep on, and sooner or later they'll be caught and punished.
Its trite but true.

Best From

a calculated gamble.
He wants to run for governor
but at the same time he doesnt
want to give up his chance of
remaining as secretary of
For one thing, he needs a
job. And if he ran for governor
and lost, he would have to join
the ranks of the unemployed
for a time.
When Adams first ran for
statewide office, supporters
called him a timberman, a
farmer, and a dairyman. But
he had no timber, no farm,
and no cows.
He was deeply in debt.
He doesnt want to run the

The Village Voice

The Village Voice is a unique
newspaper. A product of Greenwich
Village, the Voices approach is
to ordinary journalism what Alan
Sherman is to ordinary folksinging.
The Voice ignores national and
international news for the most
part; only if a story involves New
York City or the Village does it
make the page one.
IN FACT, the Voice ignores
news almost altogether, its
columns (the ones that arent filled
with ads) are taken up by reviews
and discussion of the arts, blasts
against the city administration,
and social protest.
A lot of the writing is top-grade
though sometimes the subjects
explored seem a little off-beat.
One columnist, John Wilcock,
writes the village square, billed
as the column of lasting insig insignificance.

Wilcock seems to travel about

resort in Hokkaido, Japans
northernmost, ruggedly rural, and
least-visited island, is one of the
few places where the tradition
An enormous rambling hotel,
the Dai-Ichi Takimoto, whose
up-to-date front wing has not
changed the hotels basic policy in
any way, is where most tourists
head for, mainly because its richly
decorated marble and mosaic-tiled
bath room, said to be the worlds
largest (its about twice the size
of the Villages Limelight), has
about a dozen pools all at
different temperatures and all open
to both sexes.
The custom in a public bath
room is for men and women to
cover their vital parts with a small
towel, about triple the size of a
face cloth and of the same material.
Some members of both sexes tie the
towel loosely around their waist
like a loincloth; others just ignore
the whole business.
The Dai-Ichi, whose rooms
are all in Japanese style (sleep
on futons on the floor, eat in your
room), charges anything from $4
to sl4 per nightwith meals--so
many people stay at cheaper hotels
(the youth hostel charges 60 cents
nightly with meals) and use the
towns very popular public baths.
TO MY MIND these are even
more fun. With a gaily colored
ticket costing 140 yen (40 cents),
you walk downstairs to the mens
changing room (where two old
women, as cloakroom attendants,
blandly sit watching you strip)
and then, clutching your towel,
head through the glass door and
into the steam-filled bath room.
Men and women sit first at a
low sink to scrub themselves;
afterwards there is a choice of
about a dozen different pools.
Everybody wanders around in the
steam looking as expressionless
as possible and never betraying,
even by so much as an eyebrow
movement, that their instincts are

Your professors are demanding
--and perhaps ask more from you
than you think you can handle.
But they know you can do the work.
Because of tightened admission
requirements, you're brighter than

the average freshman 10 years ago.
More than likely you graduated
in the top 20 per cent of your high
school class.
Your placement scores had to
be at least 100 points higher than
todays seniorwhen he was a

Set up a good study schedule
then abide by it faithfully.
A good rule of thumb for study
time allotments is this; For
every hour spent in class, two
hours should be spent on outside

Canine Crooner Chad

Sings Suwanee Strains

A dog named Chad is
achieving eminence as a music
critic on the UF campus.
As the chimes located in the top
of the UFs Century mark the end
of each class on campus with
strains of Stephen Fosters
Suwannee River, Chad points his
nose into the air and vigorously
adds his own tune.
Owned by UF botanist Dr. Daniel
Ward, Chad is a Basenji and was
named for Lake Chad in central
Africa, the supposed birthplace of
his ancient breed.
The little brow'n, black and white
dog with the big ears which stand
straight up has also become a
regular at the summer twilight
concerts on campus.
When students and faculty
members seat themselves on the
grass in front of the UF for early
evening concerts by the Summer
Gator Band, more than likely Chad
is somewhere among the music
His respect for the work which
goes into making the concerts a
success may or may not be the
reason, but he usually restrains
himself while there and leaves the

3.2 beer and have been since about
three days after the election.
The manager of the Burger
House, 1716 W. University Ave.,
said beer is brewed primarily
for taste and the per
cent or proof was an immature
college attitude. He said the vote
would not effect his license because
his establishment is primarily a
food business.
A general feeling was evident
that the new laws would not effect
the students greatly as far as their
drinking habits were concerned.
However, stricter enforcement
would be necessary on the part
of the lounges wit a respect to

Students Mad At Hike

Students registered strong
disapproval almost unanimously
yesterday in a poll to determine
feelings on the recent decision by
the athletic department to hike the
date ticket price at the Home Homecoming
coming Homecoming football game.
Although the fraternity and
sorority blocks had yet to be heard
from concerning their general
reaction to the price boost, a
rather strong vote of opposition
was expected.
The men polled west more eager
to comment on the decision than
the women, probably because it

MOST OF THE students seemed
to feel that if cheating was the
reason for the rate increase, then
a more effective enforcement
policy on the part of university
officials would solve the problem.
Others felt that Homecoming is
the game that most students will
bring out-of-town dates to and the
rate increase was, in effect,
punishing the student body as a

I don't think its fair unless they
really need the money that bad.
If that is the case, then why not
raise the date prices for all of
the home games?
Considering the Gainesville mer merchants

Homecoming by raising their
prices, I think that the decision
to increase date tickets is taking
advantage of the student when he
can least afford it.

Cheating Not Why

Prices for date tickets to the

full price for the seats.

questioned as to the main reason
for the decision.

the change, but the date tickets
were not serving the purpose ori originally

This is not directed primarily
at date tickets, but is part of a
program to cut down on the number
of tickets given out free or for
half price, said Philpott.

Philpott reported that the
Athletic Department had received
numerous complaints about
the lack of available tickets. The
major game involved was the
Homecoming contest which is the
only chance that most alumni get
to return to see a game.
Its true that the UF benefits

wrong with that, said Philpott,
