:ln Event Os A-Attack;

By PEGGY BLANCHARD
Os The Gator Staff
All UF students, faculty and
staff can be taken care of on
campus in the event of nuclear
attack, UF Civil Defense (CD)
coordinator Col. R. G. Sherrard
said Tuesday.
A maximum of 33,528 persons
can be housed in 34 campus
buildings designated as having
a protection factor of 40 or better,
he said.
The protection factor refers to
the amount of radiation the human
body sustains. A factor of 40 or
better means that within the
designated building, a person would
receive only one-fortieth of the
radiation outside.
When the initial fallout is
encountered, shelter would most
likely be taken in hallways, wash washrooms
rooms washrooms and basements. Later, as
the danger decreased, rooms could
be moved into and eventually
occupied once more.
In charge of the designated
shelters will be faculty and staff
members chosen by deans of
various UF divisions and heads
of departments. Shelter managers
will, in turn, select people to
assist them in running the shelter.
in addition to shelter managers,
each area will have a shelter
security control officer, a health
and medical officer, supply and
maintenance officers, morale and
welfare officers and radio
operators.
Schools are scheduled for the
various officers and will begin
as soon as selections are made
by the deans, Sherrard said, once
training has been completed,
piecemeal drills will be held in
each shelter area by the shelter
manager.
After the piecemeal drills are
held and bugs in organization are
ironed out, an all-campus drill will
be held, the coordinator said. This
will probably not be until next
trimester he said.
Stocking the shelter areas is
now under way. Sherrard said
the UF is working with the federal
government on certification of a
university drawn plan for supplying
the areas.

UF Pair To Go Before

Two students charged with
disorderly conduct as a result of
Saturdays bonfire incident will go

The two, Hugh Morgan, 22, and
James N. Davis, 26, met with Dean
of Men Frank T. Adams yesterday.
Adams said nothing had been dis discussed

would meet either Wednesday or
Thursday of next week.

The federal government, he said,
went through the campus and
designated certain areas as.having
a protection factor of 40 or better.
However, the government survey
was not as extensive as the one
--also using a protection factor
of 40 -- conducted by King D.
Royer, UF building construction
COL. SHERRARD
...Civil Defense Head
instructor, Sherrard added.
The governments survey
certified space for 18,356 people;
Royers survey allows space for
37,519 people. Royers survey is
now being inspected by the U. S.
Department of Civil Defense, under
the Defense Department.
Certification has already come
through for an additional eight
buildings listed on the Royer
survey, but not on the
government's. Inspection of the
Royer survey is expected to be
concluded about Dec., he said.
In case of nuclear attack,
Sherrard recommended students
bring to shelter areas any special
medicines needed, a small battery batterypowered
powered batterypowered transistor radio, basic
toilet articles, a towel, a blanket,
a change of clothes, a quart of
bleach with 5.25 per cent sodium
hypochlorite by weight, an empty
plastic water container per person
diapers, plastic baby bottles are
appropriate, newspapers, plastic,
paper bags, a tablespoon for eating
food and a flashlight with extra
batteries.

$250 of the fine was suspended.
Both paid the remaining SSO of
the fine and were released.
Morgan and James were charged
with interfering with the fire
department during the riot at
Thirteenth Street and university
Avenue. Firemen were attempting
to put oil the fire when several
students grabbed hoses and ran.
One hose was reported thrown into
the fire and some are still missing.
The incident was a result
of student enthusiasm over
Florida's 10-6 win over Alabama
Saturday.

To Solve Jennings Phone Woes

someone with at least eight arms
and the ability to relate messages
as fast as a crack army sargeant
barks orders.
This need and numerous other
problems is created by the phone
situation in Jennings Hall. During
rush hours, it is a sacred honor

to get a call through the switch switchboard.
board. switchboard. It is impossible for the
one-girl switchboard operator to
answer calls as fast as they come
in on lines which seem to be too
few and close too soon.
The lines close at curfew so that
no calls may be made into the
hall after this hour. Social
messages cannot be taken on the
jammed system.
Housing director T. G.
Carpenter said it is impractical
to keep the lines open later
because personnel would have to
work longer hours, carpenter said
he is opposed to students continuing
to work past curfew since "after
all they are here for an education.
According to carpenter, he is
unable to say whether or not his
office would object to hiring outside
help if funds were made available,
and emphasized in an emergency
SG To Print
Rules Book
Student Government (SG) will
publish a manual to explain rules
governing the activities of campus
organizations, methods by which
activities may be publicized and
procedure for obtaining student
activity funds.
Karl (Chip) Block, SG Secretary
of organizations, said,, he is
"hoping that campus organizations
will use the manual to better
acquaint the students with their
individual activities.
The manual is expected to be
issued by mid-November,

situation campus police would get
a message into the dormitory.
Non-student personnel now work
the switchboard all day with student
assistants taking over at 5:30. No
personnel take any social
messages at day or night, although
business messages are relayed.
Carpenter said three trunks
were extended to Jennings m early
September. But this has been only
a limited improvement.
Getting more calls in rather
than hours the switch is open is
the major problem in this situation.
I am concerned with this problem
very much and dont blame the
girls for being concerned, too,
Carpenter said.
I feel that we must have met
for over 100 hours on this problem.
We are desperate. If anyone has
any suggestions, we would be
delighted to try them.
The real problem in Jennings
is getting a call through at night,
she said, and Im afraid that if
they added more lines even they
would be jammed at times, Mrs.
Rhodes said.
Use of the pay telephone system
on. each floor similar to ones
in Broward Hall and the Yulee
area has been suggested as a
solution. Carpenter, has scheduled
a meeting with phone company
officials later this week to see if
pay telephones can be installed
on the floors in addition to having
the switchboard.

'Seminole Back
To Old Schedule

UFs yearbook, the Seminole, is
back to a once a year schedule
after last years three times a
year format.
Jay Fountain, student publica publications
tions publications business manager said one of
the reasons the tri-yearly
Seminole failed was because the
advertisers didnt like it.
There was too much pressure,
saleswise, he said, and the book
never sold well to the students.
The deadlines were tougher to
meet, Fountain said, and we
had an editor inexperienced in
yearbook operation.
A lack of funds hurt, Fountain
said. in fact, the spring tri trimester
mester trimester Seminole never appeared.'
Fountain said it cost $24,000
to print about 2,500 yearbooks last
year -about $9 a copy.
This years press run will be
about 3,000 -3,500 he estimated,
and will cost about $15,000 to
print.
The entire cost of the year yearbook
book yearbook will run to about $25,000,
he said, and book sales should
provide about one-third it.
Fountain said that all student
publications are subsidized and
are not supposed to make a profit.
Fountain also said about 200-300
unclaimed Seminoles were in
storage. He said the books would
probably be given to Florida high
school libraries, pending decision
Non-Farm
Building
On Increase
A continued rise in the number
of housing units has
boosted the value of Floridas
nonfarm building construction for
the first eight months of 1963.
The boost is represented by a 5.3
per cent increase over the
comparable period of 1962, says
the current Florida Construction
Review released by the UFs
Bureau of Economic and Business
Research.
For August, an increase of 4.5
per cent in value was recorded
over August of 1962.
Total value amounted to
$108,769,000 for August, 1963 as
compared to $104,124,000 for
August, 1962.

A Pretty Funny Custom

Maybe somebody should investigate the U. S. Customs Department.
Dont laugh. All we have on them at the moment is circumstantial
evidence, but thats never stopped the investigators before.
Evidence: Every so often we get letters from Czechoslovakia.
Oh, well, you say, just some Czechoslovakian reader of the
Alligator dropping a line. But the lines read like this: 26 Os
July, we Stand By Cuba. The Duty of Every Revolutionary is
To Carry On The Revolution.
They arent really letters, but posters. Another says Independence
For Puerto Ricot and shows a U. S. Military policeman standing
on the little island with a tommy gun, looking a great deal like a
Vopo.
The posters are published and distributed by the International
Union of Students, a little club down Prague way. Just what the Union
wants us to do with the posters is difficult to imagine.
How does the customs Department get into the matter? Well,

thats what has us worried. You see, on the front of each envelope
is printed PASSED FREE, U. S. CUSTOMS.
It almost seems like an approving nod.
Just Like Business
No growing dynamic private business or industry can finance
the expansion of its facilities and services out of current income,
unless they raise the price of their product or service beyond the
reach of the average consumer.
No growing dynamic state in the union can finance its building
needs out of current income, unless it were to levy an impossibly
heavy tax burden on its citizens. Florida, one of the fastest growing
states in the nation, can not be expected to finance its building needs
out of current income any more than private industry or than other
states are able to, and this is why the Legislature has turned to the
issuing of bonds in order to meet the very pressing demands for
expansion of our educational facilities.

LATIN AMERICAN ANALYSIS

So Many Revolutions: Why?

To the average observer in this
country, the political panorama in
Latin America resembles a comic comicopera
opera comicopera scene of mustachioed
generals, overstuffed and
unscrupulous politicians and 45
revolutions per minute.
Unfortunately, this image is far
from wholly inaccurate. Latin
America IS characterized, often,
by violent change of government
and by military coups of the type
seen recently in Honduras and
the Dominican Republic.
Why is political life in the
southern hemisphere so at odds
with the example set in this
country? in this column we intend
to examine two hypotheses which
attempt to explain the phenomenon
of political instability in the nations
to the south.
First, it must be noted that this
so-called universal instability is
not true of all Latin American
nations. We can point to costa
Rica, Chile and Uruguay as nations
which have achieved, in this
century, true representative
democracy. But these are three
nations out of twenty; what about
the rest?
One of the best-known efforts
to explain instability in Latin
America was that of Cecil jane,
an Englishman who wrote in 1929
that the cause lay in the Iberian
background of the nations them themselves.
selves. themselves. According to this theory,
the Spanish and Portuguese people
are marked by a love for
independence, on the one hand,
and a reverence for authority and
efficiency, on the other. The result,,
says Jane, is a never ending
alternation between liberty and
despotism.
The theory has few adherents
today, for it ignores the.fact that
Latin America is not Spain or
Portugal. If this dichotomy is part
of the national character, then why
has Franco been secure in Spain
since the 1930 s and Salazar in
Portugal for over three decades?
Latin Americans are not Iberians,
furthermore; they are mestizos
and mulattos, and many are pure pureblooded
blooded pureblooded tribal Indians without any
real involvement in the larger
culture of their nation.
No. Any psychological
explanation of Latin American
political instability is foredoomed,
for the culture of most of the

with Castro not to be too
hard on Cuba.
But now' that Castro
has denounced Kennedy as
the Batistaof his times
and added a few such
complimentary comments
as calling the President
acretin,an oligarch"
and a demagogue, its
going to be a little hard
for Americans to accept
the Goldwater thesis.
We appreciate Fidel
making clear just what the
facts are.

region is not an integrated one.
There are, for examples, large
areas in Paraguay and Peru where
no Spanish is spoken and native
languages prevail.
A more recent (and more
accurate) hypothesis was advanced
by Merle Kling, a political
scientist, who stated in 1955 that
political instability was the result

Viewpoint
of Latin Americas circumscribed
economy and the real bases of
power. This theory deserves
further elucidation.
Kling feels, rightly, that Latin
governments may change and one
name may replace another as
titular ruler, but that the large
landowners (latifundistas) and
mining interests remain constant.
In short, the same families and
concerns have owned the revenue-

THE NEEDLES POINT

By DON ADDIS
Among the complaints directed
at the Alligator for its stand in
the recent straw vote on campus
were some aimed at the unfair
and tasteless cartoons
accompanying the issue.
The main criticisms boiled down
to the argument that political
candidates should be deified
beyond criticism. The subsidiary
complaint that editorial cartoons
should be so labeled and placed
on the editorial page is too silly
to refute. Nobody is going to
mistake a cartoon for straight
news.
Every day in this traditionally
Democratic state, newspapers
print cartoons which ridicule and
disparage President Kennedy; not
a mere straw-ballot candidate, but

Lets form a
committee is a common
expression througnoutthe
world. Many of the
committees perform
some worthwhile service
or advance some needed
charity. others are
simply vehicles for the
expansion of the
members ego.
There are fan clubs,
civic clubs, societies for
musicians, artists,
writers, newspapermens
clubs, unions, charity
drive groups, church
social circles, guilds,
lodges, veterans organi organizations,
zations, organizations, Scouts and soon.
Perhaps there is even a
committee on
committees.
You can belong to these
organizations and so fill
your days and nights with
their endless work,
meetings and duties that
you never get home or to
work.
Anyone for forming
a committee to abolish
so many organizations?

producing sources for generations.
What chance has a peasant of
getting into such a tightly-knit
system? None, so he turns to
the only other sources of power
and wealth open to him : the army
and the government. Since there
is no monopoly of talent among
the ruling classes, such a man
can, by dint of tremendous effort
sometimes rise to the summit of
military power.
The prizes are large enough that
many men are willing to risk life
itself for a shot at such a base
of political and economic power,
says Kling, and this explains the
instability noted above. The
implication is clear that so long
as conservative forces maintain
a stranglehold on national
economics, the military and
political paths will continue to
attract ambitious, often
unscrupled, adventurers. And
instability will continue endemic
in Latin America.
K lings theory, though
embryonic, seems to offer some
basic insight into the Latin way
of government, which
demonstrates well the maxim that
the more it changes, the more
it remains the same.

The President, if this is an outrage,
its curious that it goes apparently
unnoticed by our taste minded
citizens, who are only incidentally
Goldwater backers.
I admit to applying ridicule. Its
a rough weapon, but an honest
one, as long as its based in what
its wielder believes to be true.
By its grotesque nature, the
cartoon exaggerates and over oversimplifies,
simplifies, oversimplifies, so obviously that the
reader is expected to realize it.
This realization should cushion
the blow and direct the reader to
the reasonable point presented in
unreasonable terms.
Ridicule operates on the
principle that those who hold a
strong position will survive it,
and those weak enough to fall
before it deserve it. (And, a man
on a pedestal makes a good

target.) Accordingly, it is
characteristic for the attacked to
ignore it. if he is invulnerable,
and fly into a defensive frenzy
if he is not.
For this reason Im delighted
at the furious reaction against
these political cartoons. The
response can only mean they struck
home.
I cant accept the idea that any
man or institution can be entitled
to immunity by stature; from the
American Eagle on down to Barry
Goldwater. If such suppressive
immunity existed, the nations
conservatives would have been
deprived of enjoying the First
Family Album, a select example
of the victim being strong enough
to weather ridicule with aplomb.
Criticism by ridicule is not
dirty fighting just because it is
rough. What makes it rough is not
so much its deviation from the
truth, as its uncomfortable
proximity to it. When it has no
basis in truth, it is unfair, but
it is also less effective and more
easily refuted.
If politicians and their cultists
dont want to get smacked with, a
horse laugh, they shouldnt leave
themselves wide open. There are
too many of us around who
it is a fair and wise tactic to
combat the ridiculous with
ridicule.



Letters:

Foirness
EDITOR:
I would like to commend you
on the fine and heretofore rare
display of fairness on your
editorial page recently. Not only
did you print 2 letters criticizing
the S.G.E.R. and the Alligators
stand on the C.I. issue, but also
a criticism of the papers political
policy.
The letter by Bill Wack raised
a valid point. Mine was one of the
10 letters protesting the Alligators
political partiality. I protested the
anti -Goldwater cartoons not
because they were anti-GoldWater,
but because they belittled the views
of a portion of the student body
to whom the Alligator belongs.
Everyone has the right to political
preferences. What could be more
American than the traditional
political sparring between
Republicans and Democrats? I do
feel, however, that in the official
student newspaper the private
political views of the editor should
be restricted to the editorial page.
1 fail to see how this wave of
anti Goldwaterism accomplishes
anything for the liberal cause.
Mud-slinging has little
constructive value. Where are
the cartoons and editorials
enlightening all as to the successes
of the Kennedy administration?
Perhaps your view on criticism
can be applied to the current
political contest: It is much easier
to criticize Goldwater than to find
reason to praise Kennedy.
Sue Haugsted
Detail
EDITOR:
In reference to Mr. Krishmans
letter Cop Cops Space
(Wednesday, 10-9-63), there is one
little detail that *Mr. Krishman
forgot. The officer in question
parked his personal car right
smack in the entrance of Flavet
111 on purpose. This is done at
all home football games to
eliminate the increased flow of
traffic in the village that is brought
on by the football games. This is
approved by both the campus police
and the village government. It
is necessary because of the
crowded narrow streets found in
Flavet hi, which can barely
accommodate the residents.
Also I believe the streets are
properly marked, since they are
marked with signs specifically
stating ONE WAY -DO NOT
ENTER and/or ONE WAY with
arrow 'pointing in correct
direction.
As far as the officer is
concerned, I say congratulations
for a job well done. Keep up the
good work. As far as Mr. Krishman
is concerned, if. he cannot abide
by the rules he should either stay
out or pay the penalty.

Dear Mr. Loomis:
You were right.
I was wrong.
You long ago clearly understood

competition, according to Jim
Weir, sales manager for both
publications.
Any fraternity, sorority,living

Last years winner, Alpha Chi
Omega, will keep the trophy with
another win this year.
The trophy is retained by a group
winning two years in succession.

UFs Shuffling
For Vanderbilt
With center Roger Pettee out for four weeks due to a torn ankle
ligament and end Barry Brown also sidelined, Floridas three-deep
lineup for Vanderbilt has undergone further changing.
The team which will start against the Commodores Saturday night
in Nashville bears little resemblence to the one which was due to
lineup Sept. 1 on the Gator practice field.
Likely starters this week are seniors Russ Brown (left end),
Gerald Odom (left guard), Jimmy Morgan (center), jack Katz (right
guard), and Hagood Clarke (left halfback), and juniors Dennis Murphy
(left tackle), Syd Mac Lean (right tackle), Tom Shannon (quarterback)
and Larry Dupree (fullback).
Two starting sophomores will be right end Charles Casey and
right halfback Dick Kirk or Jack Harper.
Florida enters the game with a 2-1-1 record, posting wins over
Richmond and Alabama, losing to Georgia Tech and tying Mississippi
State.

Football Fix,
. Mira Dont Mix L
By WALKER LUNDY
Sporfs Editor
Lets ease a lot of peoples minds and set the record straight.
Yesterday, an advertisement appeared in The Alligator for the
New Orangl Peel magazine. It promised an article entitled The
Story of a College Football Fix would be published soon.
Next to this notice was a picture of George Mira, University of
Miamis fine All-America quarterback.
Since then we have had r. multitude of people ask us if Mira was
connected with the fix story since it appeared so in the ad.
Well, the answer is No, No, No.
We understand the combination\of the Fix notice and Miras
picture together was purely an accident, an unfortunate one to say
the very least.
GEORGE MIRA HAD NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH THE STORY
OF A COLLEGE FOOTBALL FIX.
The Best One Yet
We found on our desk yesterday a letter to end all letters.
Readers, we confess to being biased and prejudiced, just as much
as the next fellow, maybe a little more. We try to keep it out of the
sports pages except in our column, sometimes succeeding, sometimes
failing.
But most of our prejudices and mistakes, believe it or not, are
completely accidental.
But, as we said, this letter takes the applecart.
It was addressed to: Editor or Sports Editor, which ever is less
biased.
Well, since it was put on our desk, the more biased of the two got
it, me.
It read:
Dear Editor:
Less biased sports editors print defensive statistics with their
more objective statistics columns. I speak specifically of tackling
statistics, i.e. unassisted and assisted.
Let members of the defensive team share the statistical glory
you place on the offense.
#
Respectfully yours,
Revae Bretaw, 3AS
We did not print the tackles stats because the official team stats
do not include them.
Yes, we are biased and prejudiced, but against the defensive
Gators, who also must play offense too, we plead not guilty.
But thank you anyway for a jewel of a letter.

Harriers Meet
Tech Monday
The UF cross country teams,
varsity and freshman, journey to
Atlanta Sunday for a meet with
Georgia Tech Monday morning.
The Tech course will be used
for the Southeastern conference
(SEC) championship meet on Nov
25. Last year in a dual meet
Tech was upset by the Gators
and Florida Coach Walter Welsch
said yesterday, We are looking
for a solid victory this year.
Team captain Charles Goodyear
is backed by Tommy Harrell, Bill
Opperman, and Austin Funk,
according to Welsch. With Jim
Brown, Danny Wells, Jim Woods,
George Donatello and Bill Roberts
added, the Gators could win the
rest of their meets this season,
Welsch said.
After Tech, Florida goes to
Miami, then Auburn here, Miami
here, Florida State in Tallahassee
and the SEC meet. Some of the
team members are planning a trip
to New Orleans for a five-mile
run through the streets on Thanks Thanksgiving
giving Thanksgiving Day.
Due to the larger schedule and
well balanced team, this may very
well be the winningest cross
country team ever, Welsch said.

The Florida-Alabama foot football
ball football game films will be shown
tonight in the j. Hillis Miller

starting at 8 p.m.
Florida line coach Gene
E llenson will narrate the film.
