A delightful, delectable bosom

The idea of a parody on

Court of former peasants and

for a fine satire. Unfortunately,
the unimaginative directing of

as to aid vou in Vour studies.
Movie opens in August, 1792. We
see Sophia Loren as washerwoman
saying hello to all the
aries and patriots. A cannon is
brought into town and gets stuck
in a rut. Sophia lends a hand, as
does a wise soldier to her rump,
and then to her blatantly exposed
bosom. Tee-hee!
When she returns home, she
finds soldiers and cannon in her
backyard. She runs to lieutenant
friend, Napoleon Bonaparte, who
instead of ridding her of soldiers
moves cannon to another part of
yard. Fortunately, this means
soldiers stay for night, thus giving
rise to romantic situation between
Sophia and unmarried sergeant
climaxed by his beautiful line,
I really like you. Next day,
sarge helps rid France of Louis
XVI, Napoleon leaves for Corsica

The licenses are not being issued
on a first come-first served
basis, and a minimum of 60 days
has been given to apply, Deen said.
In order to qualify for license,
said Deen, an applicant must;
Be of good moral character;
Not have commited a beverage
violation in the last five years;
Not have been convicted of a
felony in the last 15 years in the
state or in any state that would
be deemed a felony.
Deen said the initial
investigations will be handled
through his office with final
decisions to come from State
Beverage Director Richard

and sarge leaves Sophia in bed
(to return of course).
Years pass, and Napoleon is now
a general, the sarge a captain and
married to Sophia who has a most
interesting reunion with hubby.
The two get caught in the straw
by some Austrians planning a sur surprise
prise surprise attack on Napoleon. But the
two escape their captors and blow
up the Austrian garrison, thus
saving Napoleon and earning cap captain
tain captain the rank of colonel. Students,
make the necessary corrections
in your history books.
While Napoleon is moving up to
Emperor, the colonel is moving
up to the position of Duke of
Danzig (Zig-zig as loving Duchess
Sophia calls him). Napoleon then
decides that he should be King of
Westphalia. But Napoleons
avaricious sisters think otherwise
about having washerwoman Sophia
as a queen.
A reception is given at
the imperial Court. The sisters
provoke the etiquette-less
Sophia by reminding her of her
past before the whole of royalty.
Sophia bluntly reminds them of
their past and also meets some
old Paris slum friends.
The international press catches
hold of this scandal, and Napoleon,
under pressure, orders the Duke
to divorce his wife. But serpent
Sophia beguiles Napoleon by bring bringing
ing bringing back the nostalgic days of
Paris, vintage 1792. Thus, the
Duke is reunited with Sophia, and
all live happily ever after, since
Waterloo hasnt occurred yet.
Madame has little to offer as
a movie, but it has the finest
array of bosoms Ive seen in quite
soihe time. Still, it would be nice
to see sex occasionally
subordinated to satire, but then

Young Families, Rejoice
The Presidents recent decision to discontinue drafting of married
men was perhaps the most humane action of his executive career.
Anyone who has ever been in the service knows the extreme difficulty
of maintaining a happy home on service pay, in service towns. The
housing accommodations are nearly always below standard, and some
are degrading.
CAREER MEN who are married do all right. Theyve been around
for a while, and know all the angles. Their pay is adequate to maintain
a happy, well-fed home, and their working hours allow them time to
be with the family.
But the younger men, those who were married just before entering
the service, or who tied the knot during their two-week leave after basic
training, the prospects are dismal.
Somehow, it seems, the various services always find away to make
things difficult. Either there is after-hours guard duty to be stood, or
the green young soldier is shipped halfway across the country on
two-weeks notice, with his family to struggle along later as best they
know how, or he is stationed aboard a ship which pulls into the States
once every year or so.
The services do try to make life a little easier for the man wfth a
family by providing him with extra pay which increases as the number
of children mount. Then there is free medical care, post exchange
shopping privileges, 10 cent movies.
BUT COUNTERACTING these advantages are such problems as a
change in the childrens schools at least once every year, the difficulty
for the young housewife of trying to make an attractive home in the
middle of a trailer park or 1 ow-rent housing project, and her
observation daily of the clothes, transportation facilities, and living
quarters of the wives of officers often no older than her enlisted
(We are approaching this thing from the enlisted mans viewpoint,
because most men with enough education to be officers have made
other arrangements to fulfill their military requirements, and are
seldom drafted.)
There is a great amount of marital discontent in the services --
probably more than in civilian life. All the frustrations mentioned
above combine to make the evenings at home a series of battles.
Infidelity is common, with many husbands away from their wives for
long stretches of time, often in foreign countries where the girls are
different, somehow, arid the wife seems a million miles away.
OF COURSE, it may be that the Presidents decision was motivated
entirely by his never-ceasing desire to halt the outflow of gold from
the country.
Whatever the reason, the lives of many thousands of pebple will
be made easier and happier.
Including, perhaps, yours.
Brave New World
We visited a laundromat the other night. Hardly a noteworthy
event, but somehow the glistening aluminum and bright, sterile
flourescent lighting set us a-thinking.
More and more now, one encounters this sort of efficient, inhuman
decor in public buildings. There is no wasted space, no dirt, no
comfortable ledges or dark, secret nooks and crannies in short,
nothing to excite either the eye or the mind.
The machines in such places come in rows and banks never
alone, where their lack of personality" might show up. You think
it silly to look for personality in machines? Remember the machines
one used to see, the refrigerators and sewing machines and automobiles
that had handles sticking out and dents and rusty spots? (Personalities,
brother.) But not any more. Today, washing machines and computers
are indistinguishable without close inspection. Refrigerators look
like cars, and vice-versa.
And we thought also, if buildings and machines such as these are so
popular, when will the first house be built to resemble them? Not
long from now. We tried to picture a home wherein everything was
colored in cheerful pastels, and shuddered.
Then came the final, frightening glimpse of the future, and we were
suddenly terribly anxious to get away from the happily humming
After the homes, we thought, what? Wont that be the end of things
the designers can sterilize and make cheerfully, boringly functional?
No, there was one last thing.
There is nothing, we thought, less efficient, less functional, less
streamlined, less interchangeable; nothing the designers would more
like to improve.
And we saw in our minds appaled eye the man of the future.
Redesigned to match his machines.
From now on, we wash by hand.

A Better Way
To Equality Exists

For the government to survive
the integration crisis, it has allied
itself with dissenters demanding

However, the civil rights bill,
which would force owners of
private businesses to accept
anyone as a customer, is a
mistake. Our government operates
on a complaint rectification
system. The Soviet government
operates on a plan to which all
are forced to conform. The U.S.
government is the more sensitive:
if a law is made, the law remains
in effect unless it violates

Roosevelts New Deal laws were
repealed on the complaint of a
chicken farmer. The integration
flsue is like a can of hot beer
lying in the sun. It can be opened
too quickly. The civil rights bill
would result In new violence, not
the isolated incidents of school
integration, but from every single
businessman, who opposes it.
This law should be enacted by
a single state legislature first,
like the experiment with socialized

Saskatchewan. Vlolenceor
communist agitation could be
better controlled on that level,
and on that level the complaint complaintrectify
rectify complaintrectify system could be tried
in a particular case. Oregon, whose
governor is so critical of

Alabama, would be a likely place.
If no single state could be
convinced to pass such an act,
then surely national action is a
mistake. What no single man will
do, can be hidden in the security
of the mob.
A second argument against the
passage of the Civil Rights bill
is that the federal government
would take over the fight for the
As Nathaniel Hawthorne said,
the more one leans on the
government, the less he is able
to stand by himself. If the Negro
wishes to attain a status of honor
and respect, he must do the fighting
himsfelf and not hide behind Mammy
Kennedys skirt. Thus, the talks
with discriminating owners of
business establishments and
economic pressure by picketing
are fine expressions of the
Negroes fight for recognition.
Also, citizens allied with them
against discrimination emphasize
recognition as equals. The slow
and self-made- way is best
because it preserves dignity and
Who cares about dignity when

The prejudice is so strong that
Negroes are forced to live like
that. Many Negroes have jobs
which pay enough to afford better
housing, but Negroes arent
allowed to better themselves. I

in mechanical engineering who
works as a cook.

at least give them a chance to
help themselves.
The civil rights bill would be
a step in providing equal
opportunity. It might infringe a
little on the right to force others
into poverty, but for every gain
there is a little loss. It might
be another step toward socialism
but so have been most other bills
since graduated income tax.
The evils of possible socialism
are much less than the real evils
of the present social inequality.
I still hold reservations about
opening the civi 1 rights too
quickly. It should be done first
on a state and person to person
level, but it should be done.
And it should be accompanied
by housing and job legislation of
equal scope.

Athletes, Inc. Bad Logic

Little by little the Athletic
Department and the Athletic
Association, Inc., have
demonstrated their disdain for that
Institution which gives them their
non-profit and amateur status: the
student body of the University of
First: Had it not been for the
poor showing at the Orange Bowl
(capacity, 70,000; attendance at
the Rice game, 16,000), all home
games would be scheduled there.
This year, there are only four
home games scheduled. By
scheduling one of them during the
Thanksgiving holiday, when the
womens dorms will be closed
and several hundred men will be
at home, the Athletic Association,
Inc. is assured of a couple of
extra tickets they can sell.
Second: If the Miami game
were to be played during the
Thanksgiving weekend, hundreds
of South Florida students could
attend that game. But careful
planning prevents that.
Third; The outrageous price
of $5 is charged to fee-paying
students year after year, to attend
the Georgia game at Jacksonvilles
Gator Bowl (capacity, 50,000). The
printed leaflet explains that
Georgia wont agree to lower
prices. Isnt it ever a home game?
Every year they charge $5; does
that mean the Gator Bowl is the
home stadium of Georgia?
Fourth; The Athletic
Association, Inc. seems to be
trying to make up for the
permanent appropriation which
they did not get from student
government during the third
trimester by charging $5 for date
tickets for Homecoming.
Coach Percy Beard says that
for a regulii weekend they sell
1,500 date tickets, while for
Homecuming, they sell 5,000.1
am surprised they dont sell more
for Homecoming. In the first place
it has been my personal
observation that many boys go to
the regular games without a date.
Also, men and women will very
likely invite that very special
someone who meets Coach Beard's
requirements of romantic
attachment to travel to Gainesville
and enjoy that magnificent weekend
which the student body puts on
for its own enjoyment and the
pleasure of our parents and alumni.
Perhaps if we did away with the
student body, that many more
tickets could be sold. However,
not only would they lose their
non-profit status, but they would
have to buy a franchise from the
National Football League or the
American Football League.
All is not lost. I would suggest
that the Legislative Council make
its appropriation to the Athletic
Department based on the number
of home games. Such a clause
might emphasize the pecuniary
basis of the Athletic Department-
Student Body relationship.

Your editorial in the September
9 edition not only contains bad
logic, but it fails to represent the
conservative objectives to the
public accommodations section of
the civil rights bill.
Governor Bryants statement,
that inherent and inseperable
from freedom is the capacity to
make errors, states that the
capacity to make errors is
necessary in a free society. By
no method of reasoning familiar
to me does this even imply, as
you stated, that the capacity to
make errors is sufficient for a
free society.
The conservative objections to
the bill are; (1) that it places
more discretionary power in the
hands of the federal government,
(2) that it is in direct conflict
with our historical respect for
private property and private
enterprise, (3) that it sets a
precedent for further usurpation of
individual rights by the federal
I join with you in urging equality
for all races. Equality will not be
achieved until all individuals
remove prejudices from their
personal lives. No act of Congress
can do this.
P. S. Im waiting anxiously to
read the new expression of the
Conservative Viewpoint as
explained by John Hancock.

Student Cheating Caused Price
Hike -- biggest hypocrisy since
Dry Alachua County.
Does the athletic department
feel so guilty as to do a cover
job like that in the Alligator Sports
Sidelines? Ive heard the limit
when this department can dictate
who one should feel romantic
towards; (if one hates his wifess
please or boys you all better
buckle down and start loving your
dates PDA!)
I think there ought to be an
investigation done on a certain
department here on campus. Id
like to know where all the money
goes to cause a desperate move
by this group to throw in a
romantic cla us e to raise more
loot. I suppose the cost of muscle
has increased or maybe there are
some binds in those No comment
items and expenditures.
Ive learned that athletics is
more profitable than education
here at U of F and of course more
stimulating to the student?
Let us not be surprised if at
the gate we find Handy-Dandy
Kisser-Counters which of course
will register the stimulation
received from lip contact with your
partner. You know, theyre
constructing such devices.
P. S. Ive got a less
conspicuous idea for the athletic
department to raise more! more!
more! money. Why not charge
extra for overweight people (by
the pound). Scales are much easier
to come by than Handy-Dandy-
Kisser-Counters and just look at
the health benefits that would be
generated. Its a fact that over overweight
weight overweight people cause stress
concentrations in the stands.
William J. B&nes, SEG
(EDITORS NOTE: Its also a
fact, Mr. Barnes, that even the
athletic department doesnt have
enough money or influence to buy
an Alligator column, as you
wrongly implied at the beginning
of your letter.)

BOTH TEAMS, SHOWING strengths and

Tech has one of the most experienced backfields
in the country with Billy Lothridge at quarterback
and Joe Auer at the halfback slot. Lothridge is
the typical triple-threat player who can do every everything

In practice this week Lothridge has been punting
for distances of 50-00 yards with regularity. Hes
also been hitting his favorite receiver end Billy

SG Leaders 'Hopeful'
On Date Ticket Hassle

The Homecoming date ticket situation was termed hopeful by
Student Government leaders yesterday afternoon after they emerged
from an hour-long meeting with administration officials.
Another meetingthis one with the Athletic Department Board of
Directors is scheduled Monday afternoon when a formal statement
of student complaints will be read and discussed.
The hassle all started when the board voted to hike the price of
date tickets for the Homecoming football game this year from

Gator Game
Again this year University of
Florida football fans will be able
to hear the Gators 10 scheduled
football games at every corner
of the State.
It was announced today by Pierre
Be jano, Assistant Director of
WRUF, Gainesville, that 55
stations in the state will comprise
the university of Florida radio
network this season.
Otis Boggs, Voice of the
Fighting Gators, will begin his
20th season at the Florida
microphone. A popular voice with
Florida listeners, he was named
the States Outstanding Sports
caster in 1960, 1961 and 1962.
Assisting Boggs again this year
will be Ted Covington, former
radio station owner and now a
Lakeland insurance man.
The program will consist of the
play-by-play description of the
game, up to date half-time
statistics, special guests and the
half-time musical program of the
Fightin Gator Band.

We put it rather dramatically, but then we think it is* First game
of the seasoneverybody from Dunkel on down calling it a toss-up toss-upboth
both toss-upboth teams are football powers in the South.
The game is on national television, meaning around 40 million
fans will be looking on. Also, its the first game of the season.
AND ITS GEORGIA Tech against Florida, which should serve
to make the game dramatic enough without any of the added extras.
Head Coach Ray Graves had cried the Jackets should be favorites
in the game because its THEIR home field and Grant Field has a
record of being hard on visiters, (i.e., Tech has lost only three
opening games on Grant Field soil since 1903.). Coach Bobby Dodd
of Tech has been moaning about injuries since practice began. Florida
should be favored, he says.
We had the displeasure two years ago of making the 350-mile
trek to the Peach Capital only to see the Gators fall 20-0 to Tech.
Believe me, that was a long, long trip. Therefore, because we DO
remember Grant Field, we feci the Engineers should be called the

The date ticket problem will be solvedwe think, it appears headed
in the right direction from all we have been told and It appears
you can look for the price to sink back down to the usual $2.50.
We are glad.

for you, you may have to eat your words.
If the price is dropped back down, the studentyou and Iowe
