City Seeks Missing
Fire Fighting Gear

Gainesville officials yesterday
began the task of tracking down
more than $350 in fire fighting

ROTC Elective
In Two Years?
UF students can expect the establishment of a voluntary Reserve
Officers Training Corps (ROTC) program in about two years, according
to Student Body Pres. Paul Hendrick.
During the last campaign we made a commitment to urge all
Florida congressmen to vote for voluntary ROTC bills and to work
toward its realization on campus, Hendrick said.
I have written to all Florida congressmen urging them to support
such a plan, and I was quite pleased with their replies. Several
congressmen, including Sen. George Smathers, came right out in favor
of the program, he said.
A bill has been introduced in the U. S. House of Representatives
that would set up two-year voluntary programs on college campuses.
This program would also provide military scholarships.
Hendrick has also been working with the UF administration which
has the authority to set up a voluntary ROTC program at any time,
he said.
The administration is waiting to see the outcome of the bill,
but UF Pres. J. Wayne Reitz has agreed to set up a committee to study
the question as soon as the bill is acted upon, Hendrick said.
A voluntary ROTC program would not go into effect for about two
years, he said.

Hendrick Concerned
Over Seating Debate

Student Body pres. Paul
Hendrick expressed concern
yesterday over apparent friction
between independent and fraternity
factions at the UF.
Commenting on recent football
seating incidents, Hendrick noted
the tendency for groups to be
blamed foj the thoughtless actions
of certain individuals.
This problem is one of mutual
concern for Student Government
(SG), independent groups and the
Interfraternity Council, Hendrick
Hendricks remarks came at an
informal meeting of the SG cabinet,
which consists of both independent
and Greek-letter students.
Student body unity and spirit
are at stake, particularly relating
to the future of intercollegiate
athletics, said the S 6 leader.
Hendrick noted:
--it was f r ate r n ity men who
disrupted the football seating
pattern at the Mississippi State
--independent students wefe
responsible for the melee near
the card section at the Richmond
game, which caused the card tricks
to be cancelled.
Since campus attention has
focused on this football seating
problem, we now expect fuller

student cooperation. This is
essential if our team is to have
the necessary support, Hendrick
The football seating committee
is currently working to prevent
any future seating difficulties, he
said. - . ;

in order to set a curve, Voyles
said. A students grade depends
on the accomplishment of the
individual class and each person
in it, he said.
Purpose of having progress tests
at UF is twofold, he said. The
tests are designed to measure a
students* achievement both for
himself and the faculty. Tests are
an indication of strength or
weakness, he said.
Progress tests are given in all
the C courses and in CY 215,
MS 109, MS 205, MS 206, and MS
207, Voyles said. Not all of these
courses have two objective
progress tests, he said. Some
courses have one mid-term exam
and, a final exam.
Host Program
Sponsors 55
The International Hosts program
has been very successful through
this date, with 55 new foreign
students sponsored, according to
program coordinator Buddy
Sponsored by Florida Blue Key,
the program is designed to ease
the foreign students transition
to the new social customs and
activities of the UF.
International students are
matched with hosts by interests
rather than by sex.
More girls than boys are
participating as sponsors, said
Hosts are selected via
interviews and questionnaires.
Sponsors for the fall trimester
must apply during the spring and
summer trimesters.
Foreign students have been
guests for activities including
dinner at sponsors sorority or
fraternity houses and water
basketball games. Informal
meetings during the week promote
friendships and exchange of ideas
and cultural backgrounds between
student and host.
The program provides sponsors
for graduate students as well as
for freshmen. Sponsorship is for
one trimester.
Applications for winter
trimester will be taken later in
the trimester. Students interested
in becoming hosts should contact
the Florida Blue Key office in the
Florida Union.

A New Experiment

Honor Court justice
We are beginning today
a new institution on the
Alligator editorial page and
a bold experiment in public
relations. This column will
be devoted to a weekly
discussion and commentary
on the Honor System;
its problems and
achievements, its failures
and successes. It will be
the official voice of your
Honor Court.
It is our purpose to
project forcefully into the
conciousness of this
academic community some
basic ideecS behind the
concept of honor.
Is honor an outdated
concept? if not, what value
does it have for those of
us in a super-sophisticated
college community?
Were students of a
generation ago more
honorable than we?
What does honor mean
to you, anyhow? These are
examples of some of the
questions we will discuss.
Another area we will
seek to cover in the
following weeks will be an
analysis of basic concepts
of procedure in Honor
Court trials. Is our student
jury system working? Are
members of the Honor
Court competent to handle
serious violations which
nay touch deeply on a
students life? How is a
trial conducted, and what
principles underlie its

happiness.. .Yes, gentlemen,

procedure? Do students
get a fair shake? Would a
faculty committee do a
better jo? There are many
similar questions which
need to be answered.
You may have questions
or comments of your own
which you wish to bring
to our attention. As time
goes on, we will seek to
report actual trials, as they
occur, to the student with
the names and identifying
details deleted to protect
the defendant. Our trials
are secret and, as a result,
few students can appreciate
what goes on.
We wish to make this
statement before we begin.
We believe in the Honor
System. Our purpose is to
explain it, to debate it, to
probe deeply into its
problems, and hopefully, to
find answers. We invite
your comments, your
criticisms, and your
suggestions. We will
encourage debate on many
of these questions. We will
print all letters (with space
permitting) which have
value and illustrate a point
of view concerning the
issue under discussion.
We are confident you will
find this column
illuminating arid
interesting, if you respond
you can make it valuable.

out to prove by this column

Declaration of American
Less than one month later, while
engaged in a public debate with
his political adversary, Judge
Stephen Douglas, this man had
the following comments for the
people of Jonesboro, Illinois.
I will say then that I am not
nor have I ever been in favor of
. .social and political equality
between white and black races
. .1 am not in favor of making
voters or jurors of Negroes. .
nor of letting them hold office

that because the white man is

woman as a slave doesnt mean
I want her as a wife.
The two speeches above were
made by the same man, at two
different places to two groups
of Americans with different
attitudes. The man led a successful
campaign, was elected to the
Illinois State Senate and later
became president of the United
His conduct later proved that
the remarks of his second speech
were practically lies, but the
ignorance of the American people
had forced him to choose this path
'to success.
in 1858, Lincoln could practice
this underhanded technique.
Today, thanks to TV and radio,
where both groups would listen
together, the politician, dealing
with much the same bias, pre prejudice
judice prejudice and bigotry, must ride
the middle of the fence thus
the derivation of the political
trademark, mealy-mouthed.


Welsh Replies
A month after he had issued an executive order directing state
agencies to prevent discrimination in public facilities, Governor
Matthew E. Welsh of Indiana received a letter of protest from a small
businessman. The order, he said, was an infringement of his rights.
Governor Welsh replied, courteously but firmly explaining the need
to ensure freedom of opportunity for all citizens.
Dear Gov. Welsh:
I do not belong to any group or movement that are out to discredit
our government in any way. I would not consider myself a leftist or
I love this country and am writing to you because I am concerned
at what you and Mr. Kennedy and others like you are doing to it, and
to me personally.
Why do I feel as I do?
Because I see my rights as a citizen destroyed to please a minority
group. The Negroes have all the privileges for success and respect
as any white if they simply want to work for it.
My government and state says I no longer have a- right to live in the
type of neighborhood I choose (which happens to be white).
My government and state says I no longer can send my children to
an all-white school -- we must integrate.
The government says we must integrate all public places.
And now you want to go one step further and admit them in
establishments offering services. Which also includes me, because
I am sole owner of a beauty salon.
If this isnt taking my rights away as a citizen, then what is it?
I wholeheartedly disapprove of what my state and government

I remain,
Dear Mr. Martakis:
. .It is true that government, as well as business, has extended new
opportunities and rights to Negro Americans at an accelerated pace
in recent years. It seems clear, however, that the majority of our
citizens feel that all Americans will benefit in the long run if Negroes
are given the same basic freedoms as other Americans enjoy and hold
precious. These include the right to employment according to ones
qualifications and interests, the right to service at any place of
business licensed to serve the public, and the right to attend the
school that is closest to ones home, or that has the courses one needs,
or where one can get essential training and experience in getting
along harmoniously with the other racial and nationality groups of
the community.
As the Negro is granted these rights which other Americans have
enjoyed for years, some white persons will be inconvenienced or
displeased. But the continued denial of these rights does not merely
inconvenience and displease certain individuals; the denial is a
deep-cutting insult to a quarter million Negro residents of this state
and nearly 20 million in the United States. .
. .My children have been taught in classrooms with Negro students.
Our family lives only a few houses from fine Negro families. My
doctor and my dentist treat both white and Negro patients. The public
places i patronize have Negro customers as well. I fail to see how
the treating of Negores as persons and in accordance with their
individual merits or demerits interferes with any legitimate rights
of myself and my family. I do see how it can help solve a problem of
poverty, ignorance and crime that is tremendously costly to us all.
I see also how this new policy may make the American way of life
a good deal more acceptable to the peoples of the world who are
trying to decide between democracy and communism. I believe it
brings us a step closer to the religious and political principle of
respecting every individual, not just those of a certain ancestry or
I hope you will come to feel that the changes that are taking place
instead of limiting you rights, actually will make them more secure.

good purpose. .in fact, a
number of good purposes purposesthe
the purposesthe primary one possibly
being their role in helping
the college student to adjust
to a new world.
But like any institution,
there are often chinks in
the armor. One of those
weak points was covered
in last weeks editions of
the Alligator.
And the stand taken by
this newspaper is not an
anti-fraternity one.
It was simply one created
by a number of letters
written by married
students complaining of a

whether it be one or all of

fraternities or the federal

some individuals who come

Such was the case in the
Mississippi State Florida
Gator game. Its a shame,
a real shame that 98 per

displayed by a mere

One Karl A. Muller Jr.,
sophomore and resident of
Murphree Area, informed
us last week that hes
initiating a Student Group

Its avowed purpose: to

Mr. Muller also tells us

steamroller tactics of the

alternatives, but these alternatives
are presented to him by society
and the choice he makes is directed
by the multitudes of observations
and teachings that have affected
him. When a person takes to a life
of crime, it is because his
surroundings for one reason or
another have caused him to believe
that this is what he should do.
If we can change this belief, there
is no reason to punish this person
for his previous crimes. If the
crime will not be repeated, there
is no need for punishment.
The basic idea is that one should
not blame another for his actions
but understand why he acts in such
away and try to change him if (and
only if) he is harmful to other
people, punishment should not be
caused by revenge and emotional
fervor, but by a rational utilitarian
purpose of preventing the
reoccurence of the crime.
It is true that this philosophy
is hard to accept in the heat of
emotion, but it would seem a lot
less ridiculous if instead of Addis

Naive Questions Answered

Several letters recently printed
in the Alligator have presented
an old and familiar theme. They
ask, Why doesnt the Negro work
hard if he wishes acceptance? Why
doesnt he develop economically?
Why doesnt he seek education?
Why doesn't he do these things
instead of pushing in where he
isnt wanted, infringing on the
rights of good businessmen, and
becoming an object of contempt on
the streets? The questioners, in
effect, seem to ask, Why, instead
of asking me to change any of my
practices and attitudes, doesnt
the Negro become just like me?
It is hard to answer this type
of naive questioning, particularly
in a letter of reasonable length.
At the outset, one must note that
the concept of the Negro is an
abstraction, a stereotype. In this
country there are 18,000,000
Negroes. Many are tall, many
short; many are dark, many light;
many diligent, many lazy. Some
are saintly, some vicious. When
our writers propose a course of
action for the Negro, they do
not tell us which Negroes they
mean. One supposes they refer to
the folk stereotype of the Southern
darky, although in context, some
seem to refer to the participants
in present demonstrations.
Anyhow, a more important point
is that many Negroes have, long
since, been doing exactly what
these writers urge. Uncounted tens
of thousands of Negroes in this
country have been working hard,
obtaining education, establishing
professional careers and
businesses and owning farms, be becoming
coming becoming respectable middle-class
Americans little different,
presumably, from the authors of
these letters, except for the fact
that they remain racially visible
and racially disadvantaged.
Despite handicaps placed in their
way by segregation and discrim discrimination,
ination, discrimination, these Negroes have
succeeded; and, moreover, for a
century they accepted their
handicaps in patience and
meekness, confining the protest
which they felt to their writings
and to the judicial processes.
Some Negroes have done far
more than this. Against all odds,
some have achieved what passes
in this world for human greatness.
Yet even they have not reaped the
reward of acceptance which our
letter-writers implicitly promise
to the Negro who will engage
in self-improvement. Even Ralph
Bunche was unable to find a
pleasant residence for his family
in Greater Washington, EvenG. W.
Carver could not send his children
to Tuskegee High. Even Marion
Anderson would be denied
admission to the Florida Theater,
service in the Cl.
If, despite everything, millions
of American Negroes were to
become sufficiently educated and
sufficiently well-heeled to be
acceptable to the writers of such
letters, would this lead to the end
of discrimination? Possibly--our
letter writers seem to think so.
The question raises two others,
however. First, is it reasonable
to expect a deprived group to be
able, on the mass level, to over overcome
come overcome disadvantages still being
imposed by the dominant segments
of the nation? Second, is it
reasonable to ask young Negroes
American citizens that they are, to
wait yet another generation or
two, until their own youth has gone
and career possibilities have
ended, on the chance that unprodded
white Americans will then grant

by Negroes might lead to an
intensification of barriers against
them, if America continues to
institutionalize such. If categorical
discrimination is permitted, it may
well be precisely those Negroes
who are getting ahead, who are
pushing, who are out of their
place, who will'become the
particular targets of those who
feed on racial hatred. Such Negroes
may become the principal victims
of the far larger number of people
who, while not hating, are
indifferent, unwilling to support
any change in that which is,
unwilling to undergo any personal
inconvenience in behalf of others.
The Negro, seen picketing
or demonstrating today, rather
typically is precisely the type of
individual which the writers of
our letters seem to think he should
be. Young Negro demonstrators
do not come exclusively from any
one part of the Negro community,
but a heavy sampling is drawn
from the more ambitious,
education-motivated segments of
their people. These kids dont
really enjoy jail, and they dont
especially like to defer buying

Thaw And Illusion

Khrushchev has said on
several occasions,
Anyone who thinks that
we (the Communist Party
and its accompanying world
organization) have for one
minute forsaken Marxism
or Leninism, is insane.
Sure enough, it would not
be difficult to construct
a very good case to
substantiate the contention
that Americans are insane.

treaty or some other form
of negotiations with the
Soviets is an indication of
their willingness to come
to terms with capitalism
for the sake of what they
call peaceful co coexistence.
existence. coexistence. It just isnt so.
The Kremlin does not
make any secret of its
intentions. It conforms to
the final paragraph of the
Communist Manifesto
which reads:
The Communists
disdain to conceal their
views and aims.
What are their views and
aims that can suddenly be
put aside in the face the
American deterant? The
sentence that follows the
one above sums it up:
They (the Communists
in the above quote) openly
declare that their ends can
be attained only by the
forcible overthrow of all
existing social conditions.
Two words here are
significant; they are
only and forcible.
According to Marx, there
is no alternative to force,
and according to
Khrushchev, there is no
alternative to Marx.
This, however, presents
a problem, for there is no
force on the face of the
earth powerful enough to
accomplish an overthrow
in the United States. That
is, there is no force
powerful to attack and
overthrow directly. The
Roman general Fabius had

IVancfys Getting Better
Says UFs Jimmy Dunn

Sports Writer
Although joyful noises resulting
from an afternoon of football in
Tuscaloosa, Ala., continue to be
heard on the UF campus, the fact
remains that Floridas Gators are
scheduled to play Vanderbilt Satur Saturday
day Saturday night in Nashville.
With Vanderbilt, a Southeastern
Conference opponent, in mind,
Florida coaches are working to
avoid a letdown on the top -of the theworld
world theworld Gator squad.
Vanderbilt, coached by former
Florida assistant Jack Green, has
lost its first three starts this
season. But Gator scout Jimmy
Dunn has seen the Commodores
twice and reports they are getting
better with each game;
Vanderbilt has played some
good football and some bad foot football,

Winless Vanderbilt
Given A Vacation
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Vanderbilt head coach jack Green gave the
Commodores a well-earned breathing spell this past weekend alter
their performance against Alabama the Saturday before.
Green is letting the Vandymen rest from Saturday until Wednesday
in preparing for the next opponent, Florida, whom they host Saturday,
a nd ole Miss, whom they visit Oct. 26.
The Commodores gained 219 yards total offense against Bama to
-34 for the Tide, and first downs were 10 for Vandv, 14 for Alabama.
The 2 touchdown difference was inserted by Bama halfback Benm
Nelson, who scored on a 50-yd end sweep and a 97-yd kick-oil return.
The Commodores outgained Alabama 107 yards to 12 (net lining
ihe 4th quarter.
V andy quarterback Jon Cleveland s pass completions against Alabama
(10 of 17 for 163 yards) moved him into the No. 6 spot in the Southeastern
Conference. Clevelands three-game total of 207 yards ranks him
ahead of Alabamas joe Namath who is eighth at 197. Georgias Larry
