When Rome is bombed, she fears

that their journey becomes a night nightmare,
mare, nightmare, Rossetta having an
awakening to what war really
means. But the two find new
strength in their common grief
over the death of Michele.
De Sicas camera spares nothing
in its attempt to show the
immediacy of war as seen through
two peoples* eyes. A beautiful
contrast is achieved when the same
event is seen by Christina with a
shrug of the shoulder, while
innocent Rossetta is shocked by
a horror she has never known
before. The cowardly and
animalistic actions that men stoop
to when affected by war are so
vividly presented that one senses
a rather sad commentary on hu humanity.

Friendship At Last?
This word characterizes a new phase in U. S. Soviet relations.
Peaceful coexistence is in, and Averill Harriman plays badminton
with a sweaty but jovial Nikita. A test ban treaty is signed, and,
soon afterwards, a wheat contract.
The question: what will the morrow bring? Ever increasing
goodwill? Mutual admiration and assistance? Or a refreeze in the
thawing Cold War"
John Birchites and other right-wingers are worried. They are
beginning to suspect that John F. Kennedy is selling out the United
States. He is not. it may well be that he will be remembered as the
President who grabbed America on the brink of war and carrier her
back to safety, while the Bay of Pigs fiasco is forgotten.
Discounting the Birchites, then, is there any danger connected with
the sudden thaw in American-Russian relations?
Only if we relax too much too soon. It is not impossible that Russia
at last realizes that war is unthinkable these nuclear days. They may
really desire friendship with us.
But they have not left Berlin. Perhaps they will, one day, but they
have not yet. They have not offered to throw their bombs into the
ocean. Perhaps it is merely a matter of residual suspicion and fear.
We hope so. But the Russians, ever since World War 11, have pulled
so many tricks, broken so many treaties, changed faces so many
times, that it is not unnatural to view any proferred hand from them
And yet, we would not have suspicion cripple negotiations for peace.
We would not like to see the proposed U. S. Soviet joint moon shot
rejected because of ungrounded fears. A cessation of Cold War tension
is so desirable that we should explore every possible path to its
But we should do so with eyes very wide open. To act otherwise
would be a risk too great to contemplate.
A Good Philosophy
Gov. Bryant didnt really say anything new the other day at the
Gainesville Womans Club luncheon. Hes been stating all along that
the bond issue must pass, that an improved state road system will
tie Florida into an economic unit, that land purchased now for
conservation purposes will be cheaper than the same land purchased
ten years hence, when it is really needed.
No, he didnt say anything new, and perhaps a lot of it was politically
motivated. We dont know. But we do like the philosophy the governor
seems to favor -- -Plan Ahead. California probably has the best
highway and educational systems in the United States today, and the
reason is simple they pjanned ahead.
Florida should too. Or resign itself to being second-rate.
Churches Against Segregation
By RICHARD B. HIERS
Professor of Religion
By far the majority of
Protestant, Catholic, and
Jewish are officially opposed
to racial segregation. This
little known fact has been
ignored by many critics of the
churches, who suppose that
religion has to do only with
the saving of individual souls
in the hereafter.
It has also been ignored by
many churchmen, who seem to
think that love thy neighbor as
thyself does not apply to the
neighbor who is a Negro.
Every major Christian
denomination has not only urged
compliance with the
Supreme Cour declsion> but
be sr.: this has gone on to
commend the decision as in
harmony with the Christian
principles equal justice and love
for all men, to quote the words
of the declaration of the
Southern Baptist Convention.
The court's decision has been
hailed in sirr.il.r terms by the
General Assemblies of the

in 1952 that to discriminate

the basis of his race is both
unfair and unchristian. In June

Student Director Zollie Maynard
said, Were lucky we had the

The real problem is the degree
of competitiveness between the

sheet of blue onionskin paper,

4 oct 63 dear buddy davis (and
anyone else who cares to listen in),
havent done any writing since last
spring when my fourth try at a
novel aborted (i read it), but i
guess i will rise to the bait of
your proferred what makes karl
run? will not launch into an essay
but simply comment around and
upon your article, all i can say
is that from a literary standpoint
your title while clever is basically
inept, sammy glick in schulbergs
novel does run, run, and run.
but your point is that karl gluck
doesnt run. just lives in his free,
comewhatmay fashion and hardly
has a thought for the morrow,
well hardly, or could it be that
ybur title refers to my skipping
out on my native land?
skipping about, i think the
university should have been
mortified in the first instance to
fi.id a large billboard placed in
f/ont of the auditorium complete
with administration approval,
a large majority of disorganized
citizens do not care to see
billboards ANYWHERE let alone
on a college campus, so my
decorating that sign (three
separate times in a week) much
to the chagrin of the local
advertising interests should be
considered a public spirited act.
and i never lived in a closet,
though some of the rooms offered
up for off-campus housing could
hardly qualify for roomy closets
-for only 45 dollars a month,
all said with a sweet southern
smile, but life in the vw bus was
fine, i could change my view every
few days, yulee, broward,
etc and in the morning the girls
would troop past the bus and some
of them would roundly pound the
sides to wake me up. bless their
motherly instincts, where are
those pounders today and who
are they pounding?
what do you mean you were
exasperated with me as a student?
you gave me an a or was it a

journalists craft once after grad graduating.

quiet repartee but some gung-ho

but on to Holland, my offbeat
living quarters high up over the
canal, by all means offbeat and
eclectic, but let us not forget
that i put in four solid months of
hard work building the interior
walls, ceiling, rebuilding some
floors, this space sat here for
328 years before i arrived to create
a living place from it. proud of
it, you betcha.
yes i took a course entitled
typography at us and was bored
to swiss cheese by accounts of
this and that machine and how many
copies they could print, how fast,
and at what cost, etc ad infinitum
ad nauseum. but while living in
Japan i came upon the art of
caligraphy which is concerned with
the beauty of the printed figure,
the printed word, and that
eventually led to an appreciation
for the beauty of certain letters,
type faces, for instance the study
of the evolutions in designs of
the letter t for more than 400
years, aesthetic appreciation as
opposed to how much will it
make, who gives a damn, but both
approaches can be termed
and i have a taperecorder, and
with this machine i have taped
120 hours of fine music (mostly
chamber works) directly from the
local radio stations. 120 hours in
8 months, if i had been in
gainesville during this period i
would have been lucky to have
captured 6 hours of the music i
love, some things are really
important to people and if they
cant find them in one place they
will go to where, they can find
them, i guess that sums up why
i left america to live in europe.
many of the things i really care
for abound here and a lot of
real annoyances (braying brainless
radio and tv commercials for
instance) were happily left behind,
you must understand that i am not
touching upon anything so_

remarking upon the abuses of the
american way of life, the man on
the street as fair prey for any
trick or dodge that will possibly
generate a dollar.

in eruope the american oddball
simply turns into foreigner and
most of the disabling stigma
evaporates with the change in
terminology. in europe the
foreigner is an accepted part of
any metropolitan scene, but getting
back to oddball and WHY oddball?
in contrast to many people by the
time i arrived at us i had a pretty
clear image of myself and it
seemed certain i did not fit

at first confrontation but 1
recognized it and lived with it and

i guess the reason for this attitude

bums) and came to be stranded
in a bleak Colorado town with some
time to burn, went into a dilapidated
drugstore and could find only one
book among the pile of others that
wasnt a western or a myster. i
had never heard of the book or
author before but in the first few
pages the book came to life in
my hands. walden by henry david
thoreau. i read it and it made
sense to me. in a line the man
said live simply and be true to
yourself, and i have simply
followed many of his suggestions
ever since, and found them to be
one other thing, id do not aspire
to recognition as a photographer
or as anything, what other people
think of me one way or the other
doesnt concern me very much,
never has. i freely admit that it
is much better to be liked than
to be ignored and/or disliked, but
the most important thing still is to
be able to live with yourself, when
you can do that there will be just
that much more real basic peace
and happiness added to the world.
if the world will ever regain sanity
it will be done piecemeal, bit by
bit, individual by individual and
via some sweeping generalization,
politic, government, ideology, etc.
if one reads the handwriting on
the wall of the professional
alarmists one side glance at the
stampeding masses on the march
hup hup all over the world must
make one feel that the contempt
of the free individual is a doomed
one. im just a holdout and i guess
thats what makes karl run.
p. s. often in speaking with
americans i notice a look of horror
flicker. across their faces at the
idea that anyone could leave the
sweet bountiful life in the u.s.a.
to struggle anywhere else, how
could you they ask. the answer
of course is: its easy, and if
anyone would like to debate the
point i might just reply, public or
private debate, anything you like,
choose your weapons. .

" FROM THE SIDELINES
Planned At 1 p. m.
By WALKER LUNDY
A visitor to our office this week accused us of putting too much
of that sentimental school spirit junk in The Alligator sports pages.
Well, Dear Hearts, one again our critics are correct. And to prove
it, heres some more.
Today at 1 p.m. the Florida Gator gridders leave via bus from
front of the Murphree Area for Gainesville Airport and
Tuscaloosa, Ala. where they will walk the last mile football-speaking
against tough Alabama.
A big team send-off is planned and it is an opportunity to show the
team you are behind them and want them to lick Bama. i
The band will be there and all Gator fans are invited.
Another point: The campaign to have telegrams sent to the team J "
before the game tomorrow is growing steadily. Gainesvilles city X
commission and the Chamber of Commerce have promised wires*!'
and so has the Alachua County commission.
Alumni from all over the state and just plain Gator fans have 1
indicated they are sending telegrams. The Interfraternity and Pan- V
helleic Councils have promised the help of the fraternities and
But now its up to the individual students. We really believe the
Gators can knock off Bama and think they deserve our support.
The telegrams from here cost $1.60. With a group of students,
dorm buddies or fraternity brothers, it wouldnt cost much more
than a quarter.
Well say no more. Its up to Gator fans who care now.
