About 50 per cent of the 1963-64

is in the process of completion,
according to UF Student Body Pres.
Paul Hendrick.
Hendrick said his administration
plans to complete all of its planks.
Were eager to complete as
much of the platform as soon as
possible,then move on to additional
programs, Hendrick said.
Many students have sacrificed

Tickets Back To $2.50

According to Wells, the board
apparently changed its mind after
hearing the price hike wouldn't

more seats."
All it did, in effect, was create

According to UF Vice Pres.
Harry Philpott, the association
originally upped the price to $5
so as to provide more tickets for
alumni and others willing to pay
full price for the seats.
All three student leaders issued
statements yesterday hailing the

and group cooperation in making

This isnt such a bad world after all.
We're mighty pleased, were proud to admit, that the athletic

were able to sit down and work out an equitable deicision on
the matter of date tickets.
The decision yesterday to return to $2.50 as the price of

But it also must be said that the athletic association had a
very good point; there IS a tremendous amount of misuse of
date tickets.
If the association is to keep its faith in the students in coming
years, then the students will have to realize that continued abuse
of date ticket privileges can only necessitate a return to the

Trimester Helps
Job Seekers

The trimester system will help,
not hinder job opportunities for
UF graduates, according to Job
Placement Officer Maurice L.
The accelerated schedule

Some of the more familiar ones
include the Military Ball Queen,
Pan American Queen, Agriculture
Fair Queen, Business Day Queen,
Mrs. UF' and the Sigma Chi Derby

favors outstanding students
because they can more effectively
seek placement in a shorter period
of time. All our graduates, however
have the advantage of being avail available
able available earlier than students at many
other schools, he said.
This early graduation some sometimes
times sometimes has a reverse effect,
Mayberry added. Some
employers arent ready for our
graduates. The havent yet
changed their recruiting and
training programs to fit
our schedule.
However, most employers have
done a good job of adjusting their
schedules to the trimester.
Instead of compressing most of
their job recruiting into several
weeks in the spring they interview
during all three trimesters,
Mayberry said.
Students are now advised to
interview one trimester in advance
of their graduation, in order to
insure graduates of speaking to
the employers of their choice.
Some employers have also
adjusted the starting dates of their
training programs. Others have
delayed reporting dates of
trimester graduates or used
interim training, Mayberry said.
The trimester no longer causes
any significant difficulties in
placement, added Mayberry.
In fact, the main difficulty in
placement, the shortage of
graduates, may be corrected by
the trimester.

Too Much Too Soon
Freshmen, bewared A Rosy-Hued Extracurricular is stalking you.
It wants to eat you up. Slowly, by gnawing away at your time and energy.
The Extracurricular is a fearsome beast, all the more deadly to
freshmen because its fangs and claws are hidden beneath a downy
coat of good fellowship and esprit de corps.
It may lurk behind the door of some campus organization, within
the words of a bulletin board sign, or between the pages of a campus
Its tracks look like this; join. . apply . try out . sign up .
no experience necessary. . freshmen invited.
Its cry contains the sweet music of gentle persuasion, but it is
loud, mighty loud friends, and it echoes in every corner of the campus.
You may not know when it gets you. You will have signed up for
several campus organizations, and after a while it will seem as though
youre, working late every night for one or the other, while studies
lie neglected in a cobwebbed corner. A feverish loyalty has begun
to course through your veins. You want to give every ounce of ability
and drive within you to the club, the society. Finally a leader stops
you one day in the halls, and says, Just wanted to tell you, did a
great job on those posters. We need more fellows like you.
Its the supreme moment of your short college life. You feel great.
Little do you know that your hours remaining at the university are
numbered, and the number is very short. The Extracurricular has
claimed another victim.
But, strangely enough, you will never recognize the mark of the
beast. When you return home, sadder but wiser, lucky if you are
merely on probation and not suspended, you will not blame it on the
Rosy-Hued Extracurricular, though your academic blood still drips
from his hungry jaws, instead it will be a dirty deal, a rotten
bunch of profs, the trimonster, the curvew
For the worst thing about the Extracurricular is this;
It always leaves its victims wanting more.

Debate: Should We Join NSA?

What this campus needs is a
debate with real issues! These
words often preface complaints
that there is too little on this
campus for students to get excited
Therefore I propose a Campus
Great Debate. The topic:

The National Student
After the debate, you may state
your opinion Thursday, Oct. 3, in
a special student body poll on the
ballot for Fall Student Body
To take part in the debate, write
your opinions to The Florida
Alligator or to Student Government
But why all the controversy
over joining NSA? First, NS A
is a red-hot topic between liberal
and conservative students on most
other campuses in the country.
Second, the question has been
investigated by past student
governments here with widely
differing conclusions.
Is NSA anti-American? Some
say, Yes. At least, say
others, it is ultra-radical. NSA
proponents counter that the NSA
is responsive and representative

59 Steps Forward

I feel it about time that people
started taking a hard look at the
recent visit to Castros Cuba by
59 American students. I do not
pretend to know all that happened
there, for it is not so inportant
to know what these students saw
as it is to know why they went.
I will say what they saw had a
lot to do with why they went.
As I expected, the American
press has tried to make their visit
appear as Communist ted, thus
invalidating everything the
students have said in behalf of
Castro. To top it all, that fanatical
House committee on Un-American
Activities (famous for its force,
Operation Abolition) has started
an investigation using its familiar
blackmail tactics.
Now if the House Committee
can prove the visit was
communist led, it will still have
to prove that each of the 59
students is a communist, because
they, like their leaders, all pro proclaimed
claimed proclaimed that some wonderous
things have happened in Cuba under
Castro. I dont think either point
can be proven, and it is not this
articles purpose to try and show
why these students were not biased.
My point is this: 59 students
violated a State Department travel
ban so as to find out what was
really going on in Cuba. 59 students
had the courage and sagacity to
realize that perhaps the American
press, in presenting Castro as a
traitor from the start, was really
reflecting a rather brutal business
interest in this country which was
ousted from Cuba for not even
beginning to compromise with
Castro. Perhaps they realized how
many aristocrats and middle class
people were among the refugees.
Perhaps they sensed that those
refugees from the lower classes
were being used in a vicious


Mathhew Moores objection to
the public accommodations section
of the civil rights bill spoils what
is otherwise a well-reasoned
analysis. This section would not
force owners of private
businesses to accept anyone as a
customer. Owners could still
deny service to those failing to
meet acceptable standards of
decorum, it would prohibit them
only from refusing service on the
basis of personal prejudice, a
prohibition of long standing in
British Common Law.
Furthermore, in much
discussion, the term private has
been misused. Is a place of
business that deals with the public
a private business or a place of
public business? Such businesses
have long been regulated by laws
concerning sanitation, fire safety,
building codes, and other matters
having to do with protecting the
Public interest.
In fact, the right" to refuse
service to a Negro is not a private
property right at all, but in reality
a cloak for the exercise of personal
prejudice. It has nothing to do with
property, it has not been shown
that where public accommodations
have been completely desegrated,
whether by local agreement or law,
anyones business has suffered. It
is only where agreements or laws
are lacking, as in thousands of
communities both North and South,
that picketting, boycotts or
violence occurs. In the absence
of such agreements or laws, the
businessman who would like to
desegregate must reckon with the
danger of boycott and even violence

political Monopoly game, not
being able to understand how the
economic reprisals and embargos
our country took against Castro
affected the revolution.
Fifty-nine students went to Cuba,
looked and came back with several
words of praise. They are now
faced with legal action, but I ask,
is it really fair? Why should
people be denied the right of
freedom of travel? Why must our
country oppose totalitarianism by
using totalitarian tactics? Are
we so blind as to accept our
ideology without serious
It just burns me how people
can read papers as distorted as
the Orlando Sentinel or Miami
Herald or the New York Herald-
Tribune or the Philadelphia
Inquirer and accept their writings
as the best idea of truth. If people
would just stop to examine an
issue from every possible angle,
perhaps this self-righteous
attitude of so many Americans
would decrease in frequency, but
I seriously doubt this ever
Fifty-nine students went to Cuba,
and my hop& is that it be the start
of something. But no, the House
Committee will prove that
Communism permeated the visit,
and that everything said must
therefore have been lies. No, I
feel people will go back to believing
in the never-ending flood of
propaganda our papers spew forth
(as if they ever doubted in the
first place).
Fifty-nine students went to Cuba
to betray us? or did we betray
them? Or is it that we are
betraying ourselves?

on the part of white
It is unrealistic to expect the
legislatures of states such as
Alabama, South Carolina, or even
Florida to pass their own
accommodations laws. The state
legislators in many of these states
are not free to do so even if their
conscience tells them they should
- not if they value their political
lives! But the U. S. Congress
has the power and responsibility
under the Constitution to enact
legislation to the end that no
State shall make or enforce any
law which shall abridge the
privileges or immunities of
citizens of the United States or
deny to any person within its
jurisdiction the equal protection
of the laws."

Social Smoke Screen

Last evening as I sat in my
beautiful penthouse in Murphree
Area studying diligently I felt a
feeling of security. For at last
I had a. customed myself to the
sounds of traffic whizzing by; the
sundry catcalls made to members
of the opposite sex walking by;
the relentless babbling and
mouthing off by the freshmen
across the hall, and last but not
least, the conservative lighting
facilities and depressingly black
colors in my room.
Alas, my feeling of security and
peace was short lived for someone
in the distance yelled its Raid.
Thinking this to be nothing more
than a restless outburst by a
freshman lowlife, I again
commenced my reading. A moment
later I experienced a certain
amount of difficulty in breathing.
As I glanced out the window
I observed that Murphree Hall whs

Program Host Is Success

The international Host
Programs first get-together last
weekend, sponsored by Florida
Blue Key, has been termed a
success by sponsors but a shortage
of men to host the women caused
some confusion.
Most of the prospective hosts
Friday turned out to be freshmen
and sophomore coeds, while
foreign students tended to be older
males, Paulette Fredrick (4AS),
co-chairman of the program, said.

Rat Caps Dont Die
Just Fade Away

Rat caps are rapidly becoming
a thing of the past, according to a
longtime UF staff member.
Robert C. Beaty, alumni affairs
fund director, said that when he
arrived here in 1925 all freshmen
were required to wear rat caps.
According to Beaty, the only
way to remove them was for the
* Florida Gator football team to
beat Georgia. Otherwise, the
penalty was to wear them until
the end of the term.
Any freshman caught without
his rat cap was subject to Rat
Court. The defendant -was always
found guilty. Then he was at the
mercy of the upperclassmen.
He could be paddled sometimes
severely, or made to shine shoes
or perform many services for
an upperclassman.

After World War 11, required
rat caps came to an end, Beaty
said. World War II Gls had
preference in the dormitories, and
freshmen were housed in barracks
at the old airfield where the
Gainesville Airport is now
This segregation, and the
building of Tolbert Area in 1948
put an end to required rat caps,
Beaty said.
The Freshman Council formerly
sold the rat caps to support the
then popular and strong Pep Club
and other freshman sponsored
events, he said.
Rat caps can still be bought at
local book stores, but there is
little demand for them, according
to Bill Zeanah, owner of Malones
Book and Supply Store.
Zeanah said some of the fresh freshman
man freshman football and basketball players
told him the upperclassmen at the
training table made them buy rat
caps before they could be seated
at the training table.
