LARGEST FIREWORKS DISPLAY

Growl To End
With A Blast

Crowning of the 1963
Homecoming Sweetheart will kick
off the largest Gator Growl in UF
history Friday night.
Gator Growl will end with the
largest display of fireworks ever
seen in Growl history.
Growl Director Tommy
Kennington said the crowning of the
queen at Growl will be one of
many highlights resulting from
many hours of work that started
in March.
The new Homecoming
Sweetheart will receive her, crown
from the game captain of the LSU
Homecoming game, L,arry Dupree.
The Festival of Bands will
be a colorful part of the Pre -Growl
show beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The states finest marching and
show bands will perform special
salutes to the UF and returning
alumni. Rivieria Beach High
School Band will use
phosphorescent uniforms and
props as well as an eight-foot
pumpkin, to bring Halloween to
the campus a few days early.
Appearing several times in the
past the marching band unit from
Daytona Beach Seabreeze High
School will use electrified uni uniforms
forms uniforms and props.
New Stanton High School's
marching band from Jacksonville
caused a five minute standing
ovation two years ago when they
appeared in Growl and will return
again this year. The high-stepping
Negro high school band has been
recognized as one of the top
marching bands in the country.
Pensacola High School will end
its performance with fireworks.

Actually there will be four
complete Gator Growls seen on
Friday night and each will feature
a ten-year time period from 1930-
40, 1940-50, 1950-60, and 1960-

in 1932 and Red Barber
emceed, Kelley said. Each of
the four Growl shows will have
complete beginnings and endings
and every prop, act and piece of
material will come from that era,
Kelley added.
The show's finale, Kelley
said, will feature a fireworks
display that has never been seen

No Available Land?

KA Ts Still Trying
To Move On 'The Row

By JO BUNCH
Os The Gator Staff
The UFs only sorority not on
Sorority Row may not be able to
get on it, according to a letter
recently sent by the UF to Kappa
Alpha Thetas (KAT) national
office.
The letter said that no UF land
would be available for purchase,
adjacent to the other 12 sorority
houses, KAT president Bonnie
Naughton said.
Miss Naughton said the group had
been told by the UF administration
when they colonized herein
October 1961 that Norman Hall field
across from the Delta Gamma
sorority house, would be divided
into three lots for use by the
next three sororities to come on
campus.
The Campus Development Com Committee
mittee Committee has decided the land should
remain in the hands of the physical
education department, it also
decided the next choice for
sorority land the area across
from Norman Hall should be
used for another dormitory rather
than for sorority use.
Miss Naughton said the only UF
land near the Row which they
could possibly buy is between the
Delta Phi Epsilon and Sigma Kappa
sorority houses and would present
insurmountable expenses because
it is low and would require special
drainage.
KAT has invited its national
officers to Gainesville to view the
present frame house sleeping 18
girls and to aid in dealings with
the UF.
We have a lot of problems living
where we do. A particular one is
seen during rush when the girls
dont know how to find the house.
"This is not our problem alone,
though. There will be other
sororities trying to colonize and
UF Infirmary
Treats 54,000
The UF infirmary treated 54,800
students last year with a staff of
10 physicians and 65 beds,
according to Dr. Samuels. Wright,
director of the student infirmary.
Dr. Wright said all clinic visits,
certain medications and all
laboratory work done at the
infirmary are free to the student.
There is a minimal fee for
X-rays. A chest X-ray, which
would cost $lO elsewhere, is $2.50
at the infirmary and there is also
a charge of $3 a day for infirmary
bed patients, Wright said.
All other medication, except
cosmetic preparations and routine
immunization, are covered by
student insurance.

York: Ag College
Has High Potential

Dr. E. T. York Jr., Floridas
provost for agriculture, maintains
the UFs College of Agriculture
has resources to offer training
in agriculture on a par with any
other university in the country.
One of our biggest tasks, how however,
ever, however, he said, is to acquaint
prospective students with these
opportunities and to impress upon
them the excellent career
possibilities following
graduation.
The agriculture provost
attributed part of the shortage of
well trained manpower to an
erroneous image of the agricul agricultural
tural agricultural profession oy the part of
the general public an image
that the industry is declining in
importance. This is not the case.
The industry is growing rapidly
and consistently in Florida.
It is estimated nationally,
York continued, that colleges of
agriculture are turning out less
than half of the trained personnel

required to fill the needs of the
industry.
He said the UFs College of
Agriculture has many requests
for trained graduates for which
we have no one to recommend.
The College of Agriculture this
year reported its highest
enrollment in history, except for
1955 and 1957407 students. Os the
total, 110 of these students
represent 32 foreign nations.
Our foreing student enroll enrollment,
ment, enrollment, Yok said, is an
indication of the high regard held
for our agricultural program all
over the world. But, we feel the
need to interest more students--
to let them know the opportunities
for training and jobs in Florida.

What Are You Here For?
What are you doing here?
That is, to re-phrase the question, are you doing here what you
should be doing? Do you even know what you should be doing?
If you say, lm getting a degree, which will gain me entrance to
the world of business, or if you say, Im looking for a husband,
serious-minded students intent upon getting an education will
frown distastefully. Yet your approach suggests a realistic assess assessment
ment assessment of goals and methods. You have our thorough approval, as long
as you stick to your aims and stay out of the way of students with
other plans.
Now if you are one of those serious-minded students, and say,
Im here to get an education, were on your-side too. If you know
what you mean by get an education. What is an education, anyway?
And why do you want it?
Is an education the accumulation of stacks of notebooks full of
professors remarks in class? Is it the possession of many underlined
books? Is it As and Bs on grade slips? To a lot of students, getting
an education means making good scholastically. If that is your aim,
fine. Only, we wonder -- what will it get you later? Perhaps you have
the answer to that one too.
For other people, getting an education means acquiring knowledge,
memorizing a great wealth of facts and formulae. Its good mental
exercise, and we wouldnt dissuade you for the world. Dont get us
wrong. But it may be important that you know how to use that
information in other ways besides filling up bluebooks.
Lets see now -- whom have we left out?
Oh, yes. There are so few of them, we almost forgot: the student
who is here to understand. Understand himself, the world about
him, the people he lives v ith as well as some he will never meet,
face to face.
We cant offer any words of wisdom to you, rara avis, because youre
already wiser than most of the people around you. Just dont let them
get in your way.
No. 2 Is Really No.l
Amendment No. 2, by any standard of measurement, is the most
important of the three. This has been reflected in the large number of
endorsements from thousands of highly respected individuals and
organizations.
The Amendment permits the immediate launching of a sorely needed
construction program at Floridas universities and junior colleges.
The buildings would be financed with bonds retired by a gross receipts
tax levied on public utilities.
Then are better ways to finance campus improvements than by
issuing bonds. BuMhis program is the ONLY, way that stood a ghost
of a chance of passing the 1963 Legislature. Its greatest value is
that buildings can be erected now, before the jam of student forces
Florida universities to close their doors to qualified applicants.

With the semester less than a
month old, highway death has
already struck two University
students. Last year over 40,000
people died on the nations roads
and University students were
among them. The Cavalier Daily
participated in a safety campaign
last spring when we devoted a
full issue to the promotion of safe
and sane driving. The problem is
still with us and we are still
urging everyone to take your
time and not your life.
Drivers, not fate, cause auto
accidents. Occasional lapses in
judgment, attention, courtesy, and
self-control are the traffic tolls
heaviest contributors.
Dont take driving for granted
--it isnt childs play. It requires
you to make as many as 2,000
split-second decisions daily.
To make the right decisions,
thorough training and constant
alertness are essential. Driving
demands your best, every minute
youre behind the wheel.

HONOR COURT REVIEW

By 808 MOUNTS
Honor Court justice
This week, as a jumping-off
place, lets examine the history
of our Honor System as an
institution of the University of
Florida. Before we begin to analyze
any problem too deeply it would be
wise for us to know some basic
facts.
Our system has been gradually
developing since the university
came to Gainesville, in 1905. An

section of the cafeteria turns into
paper.
The reason for this metamor metamorphosis
phosis metamorphosis is economical. Without any
dishes to wash there is no need
to keep a dishwasher around and
the chance of a broken dish is
reduced considerably. Too, the
chance of having bent silverware is
minimized.
This amazing feat of
de-chinaizing the crockery didnt
happen overnight. Last year coffee
cups were slowly replaced by those
soft, pliable, plastic-paper com combination
bination combination cups. Also the tablespoons
were soon replaced by plastic
(green, naturally) spoons which
could be either bent into any shape
or form when immersed in the
coffee or used as miniature
projectiles between patrons of
different tables.
The formica trays went the way
of their partners and were replaced
by heavy paper trays which are
cleverly designed so that they dont
quite fit the rails and each
customer has to balance his tray
precariously between the
aluminum tubing.
Possibly one of the greatest
benefits afforded patrons of the
snack bar is the substitution of
paper cups for drinking glasses.
The cups bend to shape the hand

early advocate of the Honor System
at Florida was Dr. Farr, head of
the English department and for a
long time vice president of the
university. He was a graduate of
Davidson, one of the first American
colleges to develope and honor
system. He acted on the Honor
System idea in his classes. At
this time students likely felt this
a new privilege to be valued and
soon other professors began to
follow it in their own classes.
In 1914, because of student
initiative, the Honor System was
made campus-wide, having met
with the approval of all officials
of the university and the Board of
Control. The first student Honor
Court was set up, consisting of
a member of each year class
four in all.
In 1916, the present plan of Honor
Court representation from the
various colleges was established
and the entire organization of
student government was
overhauled.
If you think the Honor Court is
severe now, note this illuminating
fact: In 1931, a change was made
in Honor Court procedure. All
original criminal trials were made
secret, and the identity of offenders
was no longer published. Decrees
now refer to culprit numbers
instead of name. Why? it was felt
that the disgrace of being convicted
publicly by the Honor Court was
too overwhelming and defeated its
own purpose.
In 1940, a change was made in
the Student Body Constitution. The
clerk of the Honor Court was to

College life is a lot of fun;
it is meant to be. But to some
students the fun of college becomes
the reason for it. Fraternity and
sorority activities become all
important and classes must be
sandwiched in between. For some,
athletics. For many others, simply
having a good time, yakking in the
C.T., playing bridge until all hours
of the night, dating. A lack of
self discipline prevents us from
saying no sometimes when we
know we should, but with a major
testing period upon us we must say
no.

be elected campus wide instead of
from the court membership as
before. The purpose was to avoid
all political divisions within the
court itself.
In more recent times, many
of you may remember the con controversy
troversy controversy over the student jury
system. During Bill Trickels term
as chancellor, it was felt that the
all justice jury became too
hardened after a long series of
tirals. In the fall of 1961, the student
jury system became a reality. On
November 5, 1961, two students
were found guilty of cheating by a
six-man student jury. This event
was covered in pageant magazine.
In this same year, a group of
students sought in civil trial to
have the constitution
interperted so as to allow the
court to publish names of culprits.
This question eventually went
before the students in the fall of
1961 and was defeated.
Also in this period, the offices
of attorney general and chief
defense counsel were created,
which greatly improved the
efficiency,of the could.
In post-war times, because of
rapidly expanding enrollments
from a few hundred to nearly
15,000 students, the Honor System
has been fighting for its life. In
future weeks, we will discuss the
challenge that is presented our
Honor System and how it can be
met.
Special Note: If anyone has
transferred from Davidson or
some other school with an Honor
System, we would appreciate
hearing from you.

On TV
EDITOR:
Alan Levin has a good point
about T.V. drama. Content is not
strictly a product of the medium
through which it is disseminated.
Writers of fiction in all media
can be expected to turn out some
bad work. I think the outlook
discussed by Don Addis is much
bigger than the T.V. medium alone.
It is the popular practice of
sentimentalizing the bad (all truth
not being relative). It is also the
practice of trying to understand
the motivating factors that
make a person do things that
class him as a criminal, on this
point, I wonder if Mr. Levin has
seen where his position inevitably
leads.
What is there but environment,
he asks, to cause a person to
think and act the way he does?
According to this implied
deterministic position, it is folly
to criticize an Alligator columnist
(or anyone, for that matter); for
surely, no one can help writing
the things he does; his own private
environment compels him to think
and act precisely as he does
Which is simply saying, man is
neither free nor responsible. He
cant help it. It is almost obvious
that most of us know we ARE
responsible, in at least a
substantial measure, for our
decisions and actions.
Then, too, punishment under the
law is not necessarily caused by
revenge and emotional fervor.
The knowledge of possible punish punishment
ment punishment can be a deterrent against
the committing of criminal acts
(by those who do not respect the
law).
As long as man is partially free
to do as he pleases, he is partially
responsible for his conduct;, in
fact, this is a tautology. We may
argue as to an individuals
accountability in specific
circumstances, but one thing
should be clear: we CAN help it;

Retain It
EDITOR:
Recently an article was written
by Ernie Litz. The title was Water
Basketball Usefulness Gone, and
the writer was against the inclusion
of water basketball in the intra intramural
mural intramural program.
After being very closely
connected with fraternity intra intramurals
murals intramurals for four years, I know
'that, as usual, a member of the
Alligator staff is on the side of a
very small minority.
Water basketball is the most
exciting sport on the intramural
calendar, it even outdraws flag
football for /the number of
spectators.
I agree, it is a very rough
sport, it is possible for someone
to drown. Likewise, it is also
possible for someone to break a
neck playing flag football or
fracture a skull running into a
wall playing handball.
A person could even get his
inger caught in a bowling ball,
and it is very possible to tear
a pants pocket on a corner of a
table playing ping-pong. This is
all possible but it is unlikely.
It would be very hard for
someone to drown unnoticed. The
officials are not as incompetent
as you think, Mr. Litz, and there
are reserve players and spectators
lining the sides of the pool intently
staring at the water.
The only people who really know

how rough water basketball is,
the players themselves, do not
want to see the game cut.
The team members of my
fraternity had to fight a rough
game every time they went into
the pool. They just outfought the
other teams and became the Blue
League champs.
Not one of them would think of
cutting the sport. They got as much
punishment as they gave out and
liked it.
They realize that if you want
something worth having you must
fight and fight hard for it not only
in sports but also in any other
human relations.
As the Student Director of
Intramurals stated, water basket basketball
ball basketball is one of the safest sports
for the number of injuries. I have
seen a player knocked unconscious,
a fractured ankle, and a broken
finger in flag football but nothing
more serious than a welt or a few
scratches from water basketball.
At a meeting the first week of
this trimester all 26 fraternity
intramural managers voted
unanimously to retain water
basketball in the intramural
program.
Therefore, please dont advocate
removing the most competitive
and well liked sport from the
intramural program. Someone
might listen to you.

EDITOR:
Many letters have appeared here
in the weeks since the picketing
of the C. I. began admonishing
Negroes to prove themselves
worthy by rising to white
standards of education, public
service, and quality of behaviour
before they start demanding equal
treatment by whites. The writers
of these letters are blind to the
fact that it is the treatment
Negroes receive at the hands of
whites that is holding them back.
When a young child first begins
to perceive the social world around
him, he is also made aware of

his position in it. In the United
States the child is soon taught
that his own efforts will be the
most decisive factor in improving,
maintaining, or worsening his
social position. Even the child
from the poorest family can dream
the American dream; work, and
the rise from insignificance and
subordination to fame, comfort,
and responsibility in the greater
community. If hes all-white,
that is. The Negro child has it
demonstrated to him with
devastating repetition that he isn't
a full citizen, that his dreams
arent eligible forfullfillment, that
he isnt even quite a human being:
hes colored, or. . He gets
the point.
It is hardly surprising that many
young Negroes, especially the ones
in more desperate condition, react
to this situation with various forms
of anti-social behaviour. It is
surprising that others, by using
superhuman moral stamina, have
managed to overcome the crippling
effects of their social environment
and risen to importance in the
nation. Most, however, are
exhausted by the struggle that
Negroes have to make for simple
recognition recogmtion that
most citizens can take for granted
-- recognition of their right to
lead ordinary lives without having
to concede an inborn inferiority
against all reason and evidence.
Naturally they can't get far as
middle-class Americans. Its a
grinding uphill battle against
small, irritating cuts, snubs, and
outright rejection, not to mention
vast institutionalized
discrimination such as denial of
the vote, service facilities, decent
schools, housing, and so on. All
these barriers are put in the way
of Negroes who would like nothing
better then to fullfil white
requirements. The prejudiced
whites put them there, and now
expect the Negro to walk through
them as though they didn't exist.
I would like to thank the Alligator
editor for printing this letter and
all of the other letters on both
sides which have appeared in the
paper. Its a fine example of what
a free press is for.

EDITOR:
I read the commentary in the
Gator of Monday, October 14, in
which Mr. Harold Young compared
contemporary religion to football.
I find it hard to believe that any
person, in this day and age, when
tolerance learned over a period of
centuries has finally let us all live
in peace and harmony with
members of other religious grous,
could be so crass as to compare
football, a cult of violence and
discord, with Christianity, the
religion of Brotherly Love.
Personally, I resent the too
obvious implications of his article,
and I am sure many will agree
with me when I say that Mr. Young
is categorically wrong in his
assumption that there is any
similarity between the faith that
a child learns at its mothers
knees and the orgiastic, material
motives that compel the so-called
worshippers to go to football
games.
The disgusting display of
immature behaviour witnessed by
the entire city on Saturday, when
the followers of what is styled
by these misguided people a
religion was an everlasting blot
on the reputation of the university.
Not being satisfied with this, they
apparently wish now to defame
the % reputation of religion as well,

Wednesday / 0ct,23,1963 The Florida Alligator

Honor Bright

By JOHN AS KINS
Honor Apples are back, and we,
for our part, are glad tosee them.
In the first place, they are a
harbinger of Fall, that most
romantic of seasons. There is
nothing quite like Fall --theclear,
crisp air, the smell of woods moke
drifting on the wind, colorful
football jerseys on a green field.
Os course, down here the leaves
dont turn to red and gold, nor
fall from the trees, but at least
the air is cool.
In the second place, the apples
are good. Juicy and sweet, just
the thing for between classes
snacks. An apple a day, and so
fourth.
But the third quality of Honor
Apples is the good moral
atmosphere it breeds among the
students. It is easy to pick up two
newspapers for the price of one,
if that is your fancy, or if you
have a lot of fish to wrap, but
to hook an Honor Apple is
unthinkable by all but the basest
hearts.
An Honor Apple is bright and
cheerful.lts brilliant red coloring,
its unblemished roundness repre represent
sent represent goodness and nice things.
(It does, really -- dont ask us
how. There are some things in
this world unexplainable by man.
This is one of them, we hope.)
Honor Apples are prominently
displayed about the gampus, in
such away that stealing is
difficult, because anyone passing
by can see the theft. This, although
a masterpiece of strategy, is a
mistake, we believe. Par, far
better to put the apples in little littletraversed
traversed littletraversed spots. Where no
temptation exists, no strength is
built to overcome it.
*We would also caution against
hasty generalization on the part
of those who observe what they
believe to be an Honor Apple
theft. Some people drop large sums

V
by comparing it in some way with
this mob violence, knowing full
well that a truly religious person
would not let his emotions get
away with him in such a fashion.
Furthermore, the comparisons
in this letter between men of God
and football coaches is not only
an insult (o the intelligence and
sophistication of our student body,
but to those very men who sacrifice
their lives to spread the holy Word.
Ministers and priests, today as
always, join the preisthood of their
respective denominations because
they have heard the Call* and
certainly not because of the
reasons sports-writers and other
such persons take up their jobs.
But worse by far than any of
the above over-simplifications is
the direct statement that religions
exist to give worshippers spiritual
satisfaction, when Christianity has
tried for centuries to glorify God,
and not man.
I am a Christian, I do not smoke
or drink, and I try to the best of
my ability to practice the precepts
of my faith. I sincerely hope that
I have at least cleared up a point
or two about the religion of the
future".
And as for these modernistic,
agnostic heathens, I hope that if
they dont leave their evil ways
they will be struck by lightning.
Henry Kramer, luc

of money, perhaps a half-dollar,
in the Honor Apple coin boxes and
then take five apples during the
next few days. To the casual
observer, of course, it seems as
though a theft is being perpetrated,
but to loudly proclaim the supposed
crime is unfair to the person who\
pays ahead. (If the person whoV
grabbed us by the arm and shouted
for the campus police the other
day is reading this, let him feel
ashamed, and give us back our
apple, please.)
Are you getting tired of reading
about Honor Apples? Let us go then,
to Honor Bikes, another excellent
system for emphasizing the moral
part of student life. Honor bikes,
of course, are a thing of the past,
but in their time they were a
potent force for good. Painted
orange and blue, they were un unmistakable,
mistakable, unmistakable, even from a distance,
and many students felt a certain
pride upon being hailed while upon
an Honor Bike. It made them feel,
we suppose, more a part of the
university. Naturally there were
some who decried the plan as a
political move, and others, pseudo pseudocynics,
cynics, pseudocynics, who called disparagingly
to Honor Rikees. We feel sorry
for them, for they have never
known the joy of self-discipline.
Think of the temptation to dispose
of one or more of the bikes at
one of the conveniently-located
bicycle shops in town. (Come to
think of it, where did all those
bikes go?)
We havent even mentioned the
Honor Code, but to do so would
require another article of a length
equal to this one, and we doubt
youve even read this far. (Are
you there? Yoo-hoo.)
Code, Bicycles, and Apples --
but the greatest of these is Apples.
Apples because you can make
things of them, like pies, and
strudel. You cant make anything
of bicycles but scrap metal or
wierd lamps. And you cant make
anything of the Honor Code.

Decision
EDITOR:
The proposed constitutional
amendment providing for the
Issuance of 75 million dollars
worth of bonds for higher education
poses a most important decision'
for the people of Florida.
The question involved in this
amendment goes far beyond the
construction of educational
facilities. It involves, as well,
the fundamental decision of
whether these educational costs
can best be met through a program
of bonded indebtedness or on a
pay as you go basis.
Insofar as bonding programs go,
the one proposed in the amend amendment
ment amendment is fiscally sound. It provides
for a carefully planned and con controlled
trolled controlled method of financing, it
possesses safeguards against the
abuses and extravagant costs in inherent
herent inherent in some financing plans
Florida has experienced.
- But the basic question of bonded
indebtedness versus pay-as-you pay-as-yougo
go pay-as-yougo still remains. This is a decision
that the people of Florida alone
can and should make and then
only after the most careful
consideration.

r Find UF Students 'Friendly ==r
Dutch Visitors
Like UF Campus

By ROBERT GREEN
Os The Gator Staff
Two touring Dutch students saw
American campus life UF style
-- yesterday and liked what they
saw.
The two, Hans Kanters and Chris
Van Seventer, are from the
University of Leiden in Leiden,
Holland, and are visiting colleges
and universities across the United
States under the sponsorship of
the Netherlands Students Council.
The purpose of the trip is to
bring back ideas about campus
and dormitory life in this country
to use at a planned Dutch technical
university.
Kanters said no Dutch and few
other European schools have
campuses as we know them but the
new university will somewhat adopt
this system. Kanters and Van
Seventer hope to bring back the
good points of U.S. campuses and
avoid some mistakes.
Both students reported UF
students friendly and were pleased
that professors here are easily
accessible to students both during
and after class, a practice not
always true in Europe.
Kanters said he hoped the new
university would have better
counselling service and more
responsible student government as
most American schools have.
I think American schools do a
good job of mixing academics and
student life, Kanters added. I
also wish we had more school
athletic events because I think
these events draw a school
together.
Van Seventer said the new school
would probably be modeled on a

smaller school than the UF since
it will be a limited enrollment to
start.
I think dormitories should be
between 30-120 students in each
and each person should have a
single room, Van Seventer
continued. He also said a good
fraternity-sorority system, such
as the UF has, could be a help
to a school.
The two arrived here Sunday
*
afternoon by bus and were met
by Don Denson, chairman of the
Foreign Host program. Jim Pugh,
undersecretary of the Host
program, arranged for the two
to stay at the Sigma Nu house and
eat most of their meals there.
The Sigma Nus also provided much
of the transportation for the two
students.
Later, they attended classes,
visited Gator football practice,
met with Dean Frank Maloney of
the College of Law and Dean of
Student Affairs Lester L. Hale
and toured several dormitory
areas. They also ate dinner at
the Alpha Chi Omega sorority
house.
They leave today for the
University of Miami, the next to
last stop on their trip. From there
they go to Howard College in
Washington, D.C., and then back
to the Netherlands.
Among the schools they have
visited are Harvard, MIT, Cornell,
Michigan, Northwestern, Boston
University, California and
California Tech.
Sauer Speaker
At Luncheon
Dr. E. G. Franz Sauer, assistant
professor of biological sciences
here, will speak to the luncheon
meeting of the 'Alachua Audubon
Society Thursday at the Holiday
Inn on The Small House 'of the
Biggest Bird.
He will illustrate his discussion
with slides he took in Africa where
he studied the biological and
migratory habits of birds.



We Apologize

A United Press International story in yesterdays Alligator
said Georgia Tech end Ted Davis had been dropped from the Jacket
team because of an incident in Saturdays game against Aubufn
where he kicked an opposing player. The headline said he had
been kicked off.
Beth were wrong. He quit the team instead of being kicked
off. We sincerely regret the mistake and apologize to Mr. Davis
and to our readers.
--FROM THE SIDELINES =
Auburn Paper
Criticizes UF Fans
- By WALKER LUNDY
Sports Editor
An editorial appearing in the Auburn Plainsman takes the UF
student body and alumni to task for our treatment of the football team
after the Richmond game.
As you remember, the general atmosphere was, Phooey on the
Gators. ..
The editorial brings up some good points concerning football
overemphasis and how this can be a detriment to a university.
The forty some-odd mortals who trot brusquely into Saturdays
spotlight are mere human beings. So is the head coach. There will be
days of joy and days of sorrow for any group of fans and alumni.
Let this situation be a lesson to Auburn students and graduates.
Auburn too will have its good days and its bad ones on the gridiron.
The only objective criterion for judging the coach and athletic program
is the calibre of men who wear the colors. Character and spirit
are the essential components by which an athletic program may be
judged. Winning or losing is not the essence.
If and when athletics here ever reach that sorry state of affairs,
they should be abolished immediately.
A Night With the Tigers
An evening at home with the Louisiana State Tigers is something
like a cross between playing tag with a mad elephant in a dark closet
and being put in a tiny echoe chamber with ten Elvis Presley records
playing.
In sophomore language, that means bad news.
We have never made the trip to Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge,
La. but we have heard about the spectacle from various sources,
including football players, coaches, sports writers and just plain
fans who have been dumbfounded at the sight.
Before we move any farther with this Bayou travelogue, we will
say that those same Tigers get to visit Florida Field Saturday for a
football game against the Gators. We just thought you might like to
know what the Bengals have working for them when they play at home.
- They play all their games at night, starting at 8 oclock. Tiger
Stadium holds a tad ipore than 60,000 humans and usually by 6 p.m.,
the place is more than three-fourths full. The students stage an
impromptu pep rally then. Families come with box suppers and join
in.
Then they bring Mike, the Tiger out, and thats a signal for the
roof to come off. The animal is anhonest-to goodness tiger and sounds
mean enough to scare any opposing team.
The cheerleaders use an electrified proding stick to get Mike riled
up and then pipe his ferocious growls into a mike that sends the sounds
richocheting around the oval stadium.
Then the game starts and the frenzied crowd shifts into high gear.
You wonder if they were really yelling before.
The Tiger gridders have the ball and begin to move. The unified
chant, Go, go, go! blasts forth. But the minute the LSU quarterback
bends over the center, the noise stops while he barks the signals.
The instant the play is started, Go, go, go! begins again.
We remember a story told us our freshman year when the Gators
shocked the touted Bengals in Tiger Stadium, 13-10, on a 68-yard
run by Larry Libertore and two Billy Cash field goals.
The Florida quarterbacks had to ask the officials to quiet the
crowd so the team could hear the signals.
A friend of ours who made the trip said he almost had to fight his
way out of the stadium when he yelled, Go Gators! once.
The whole point of this is to perhaps see to it that Floridas newly
found fans can give the visiting Tigers a little of their own medicine
Saturday.
Its awfully hard to play ball when you cant even heai your
quarterback calling the signals.
Go, go, go. .

started for a similar ailment.
If it doesnt swell up on him
in the next few days, hell be
well for the game, Cunningham
said. We just dont know right
now.
Dent, a 215-pound senior, was
put out of commission before the
season started with his other knee
and had been ruled out for the
entire season.
But he was operated on and
one month later donned his pads

JOHN DENT

and returned to work.
He was currently running on the
Go Gators unit and had seen quite
a bit of action against Alabama
two weeks ago and last Saturday
against Vanderbilt.
Weve got alot of injuries now
but if we lose John its going
to make things alot worse, Graves
said after practice.
Graves earlier in the week had
said the Gators would not practice
hard this week because of all the
minor injuries. Dent was injured
during a dummy drill and had to
be helped off the field.
The Gators turned in another
day on the practice field yesterday
and nursed their horde of minor
ailments.
The Gators walking wounded
are expected to return in mass
today with only a few holdouts.

The UP" cross country teams
wrecked previously unbeaten
Georgia Tech Monday, 21-38, for
the varsity and, 19-42, for the
freshmen.
Captain Charles Goodyear won
with a course record of 23:13.5.
Joe Watkins of Tech was next in
23:31.1.
Tom Harrell, Bill Opperman,
Jim Brown and George Donatello
rounded out the first five for
Florida.
David Wilson won the freshmen
race in 11:14 for just over two
miles. Terry Losonsky, Dieter
Gebhard, Don Hale and Ji m
Shalls were the top five.
This record is a fluke because
they changed the course slightly
this year and this was the first
time they ran over four miles in
a meet, it should stand until they
run against Furman, Goodyear
said.
Tech had beaten Alabama,
Clem son and South Carolina in
previous meets. The varsity
harriers have now won two straight
while the freshmen have three
victories. They go to Miami on
Sunday for a meet the next day.

Sand bug.
The Volkswagen is as at home in desert coun country
try country as cactus.
It never needs water. (The engines air-cooled.)
It cant boil over. (No radiator.)
It goes on sandy roads. (The engine in the rear
gives it extraordinary traction.)
But the desert isn't the VW's only habitat. Put
it on a mountain road and it acts like a mountain
goat. Climbs up the steep places. Through snow
and ice.
Wherever it goes, the VW brings with it re refreshing
freshing refreshing ideas about economy.
It averages about 32 miles to the gallon. Some Sometimes
times Sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on how
and where you drive.
It rarely needs a major overhaul. Many VWs
have gone over 60,000 miles with the original
cylinders and pistons.
It lasts almost indefinitely. Most of the earliest
Volkswagens are still around, digging themselves
out of the sand and climbing mountains.
In fact, you might call the VW a chameleon. It
adapts so well to its surroundings.

candidates who Sloan and
assistant coach Perry Moore will
be working with before Florida
opens its 1963-64 season Dec. 3
hosting Florida State.
Baxley, a Miami cage product,
was the leading scorer for the
Gators last season with a 16.2
average. Lost are the second and
third top scorers, Taylor Stokes
and Tom Barbee, as well as
Buddy Bales. However Baxleys
backcourt playmate, Brooks
Henderson of Coral Gables,
enjoyed a 14.2 average. Also
coming back are juniors Dick
Tomlinson (7.2), Bob Hoffmann
(6.5) and senior Mont Highley
(5.3), all of whom are expected
to form the nucleous of the Sloan
team. The other lettermen who will
see plenty of action are Lanny
Sommese and 6-7 Bill Koss.
Up from last years freshman
team are three players Sloan will
be looking at carefully and a former
Baby Gator, back from a service
stint. The soph standouts are
towering Richard Peek, a 6-11
Pensacola star, Bruce Moore, a
5-11 guard, and 6-9 Gary Keller
of St. Petersburg. The ex-service

star is Paul Morton, a 6-4 New
Yorker who was leading scorer
on the Gator freshman team two
years ago.

Top Teams Look
To Easy Week

NEW YORK (UPI) Pitts Pittsburgh,
burgh, Pittsburgh, undefeated in four games
and ranked third in the nation,
finds itself an embarrassing 5
point underdog for Saturdays clash
with 11th ranked Navy and its one
man gang quarterback Roger
Staubach -in what shapes up as
the outstanding college football
games of the week.
As a result, the Panthers are
the only members of United Press
Internationales Top Ten not to be
accorded a strong favorites role
by the oddsmakers. Staubach
shredded Pitts defense last year
as a sophomore in leading the
Middies to a 32-9 rout.
The rest of the nations elite
face relatively easy contests this
week with the exception of
Northwestern and Wisconsin.
The second ranked Badgers
square off with perennially tough
Ohio State, which was rated fourth
nationally before being dumped
32-3 by Southern California last
week. Yet Wisconsin is an 8
point choice over the unranked
Buckeyes in a key Big Ten game.
Northwestern is a 5-point
favorite over an erratic but strong
Michigan State in another Big Ten
clash that could have very strong
bearings on the Rose Bowl picture.
The Wildcats have already lost
one conference game while the
Spartans are 1-0-1 in league play.
Top-rated Texas is a
two- touchdown favorite over Rice,
but the Longhorns are
understandably wary. The Owls,
a 13-point underdog, marred
Texas perfect record with a tie
last year in a similar situation.
Fifth ranked Alabama and sixth
-ranked Mississippi,Southeastern
Conference rivals, both are
whopping favorites. The Crimson
Tide rates 26 points better than
Houston, and the Rebelsare given
28 points over Vanderbilt which
hasnt won in four games.
Other mismatches feature
seventh ranked Oklahoma, a 23
-point choice over Kansas State,
and 10th ranked Southern Cal,
which rates only a 13-point favorite
over California. Auburn, No. 8,
is idle this weekend.
The nationally televised

game pits improved Notre
Dame, 17th in the country, with
Stanford on the West Coast. The
Irish are 12-point favorites.
Illinois, No. 4, is a cautious
10-point pick over a battered
UCLA team that has won only
one game in five outings in one
Friday night game, and VMI is
a 1 -point choice over Richmond
in the other.

Florida Picked
North Carolina St. vs. Duke, even
money;
Mississippi St. 1 over Memphis St.;
Georgia 2 over South Carolina;
FLORIDA 5 OVER LSU:
William and Mary 8 over George
Washington;
Celmson 8 over Virginia;
Florida St. 12 over Virginia Tech;
Maryland 20 over Wake Forest;
Georgia Tech 21 over Tulane.
Tickets Sold Out
(Continued From Page I)
a storm of student protest over
the date ticket hike.
Date tickets are what put us
in this bind, Beard said. A great
many more students bought them
then anticipated.
Student Body Pres. Paul Hen Hendrick
drick Hendrick laid blame for the lack of
seats to poor planning.
If any attempt was made this
year to project the number of
students who would want seats,
the estimate vastly missed the
mark, Hendrick added.
Hendrick said this sort
of thing has happened before and
Student Government plans to work
out a long-term understanding with
the Athletic Department so student
rights to seats can be respected.
Enough seats should be held
for students or they should be
given a deadline when to get their
seats. Neither was done,
Hendrick said.
Almost one half of the student
activity fee goes to the Athletic
Department. This trimester the
Athletic Department received
SBI,OOO and is expected to get about
$36,000 next trimester.
