Penn States Loss Proved
To Be Music Worlds Gain

It was July, 1913, about 50 years
since the Civil War and 140 from
the American Revolution. The
Boy Scout Fife and Drum Corps
of Tyrone, Pa., was scheduled
to parade next day, the Fourth of
The corps was virtually ready;
the boys had uniforms and they
had rehearsed until the last wild
fife-squeal was under control.
There was only one misgiving;
their drum major did not have
a baton.
Drum major Fred Waring did
not reconcile himself to this lack.
For a drum major not to have a
baton was like a groom minus a
ring on a wedding day.
Casting about for a make-do
idea, he noticed that his mothers
lace curtains were hanging on a
set of brass knobbed rods. Fred
took down a pair of curtains and
gave the Fife and Drum Corps a
properly dashing drum major, who
pumped a brass knobbed baton.
This was his first taste of show showmanship.

where entertainment was no spec spectator
tator spectator sport; it was always
home made, a do-it-yourself
project. If a youngster enjoyed
music, he played it on anything
that came handy from combs vi vibrating
brating vibrating in tissue paper to howling
musical saws.
If a Tyrone youngster were
extraordinarily lucky, he was given
a real instrument for Christmas,
such as a ukelele. Thus Fred
collected chords for his banjo
and his brother Tom found out how
to carry tunes on the black keys
of the family upright piano.
Nobody was a singer around
there, but everybody sang, when,
especially during the summer
months, Fred and Tom were joined
in music-making by Poley
Mcclintock on drums and Fred
Buck on his banjo, Tyrone pulsated.
Mrs. Jessie Waring, mother of
Fred and Tom, used to roll her
eyes toward the ceiling and predict,
Therell go another chair to the
cellar, she was usually right;
the chair that oftenest went to the
cellar with one leg bucked would
have been sat in by Poley.
The four called themselves a
Banjazzatra, since there were
two banjos in the outfit but two

of nothing else.
At first, for all concerned, the
band-barber shop quartet was a
hobby and a pin money maker.
Fred, who was thought to be the
most unflinching in business deals,
was the manager.
He was the only one of the four
who elected to go to college and,
during his freshman year at Penn
State, he booked a number of dates
and joined the band to play them.
Among the most famous annual
college dances of the era was the
Jay Hop at the University of
Michigan. Manager Waring
venturesomely applied to play the
hop and, much to his alarm, the
Banjazzatra was hired to play
for the overflow crowd. He took
a leave of absence from Penn State
to enlist the support of three
brass players.
The Pennsylvanians were show showstoppers
stoppers showstoppers and if Fred did not
conduct, in the strictest sense
of the word, it was he who gave
the group a bold and enthusiastic
front, and who resourcefully
thought of ways to stretch their
repertory as the evening wore
For the history of the night is
that jay Hoppers deserted the
main ballroom to jam the overflow
room. And next morning Fred, as
manager conductor, was offered
a week at a nearby Detroit Theatre
-a week which stretched to a
month as the crowds queued up.
He never returned to Penn State.
And marquees twinkled from
Hollywood to Paris as the youthful
group gained momentum.
Almost five decades have passed
since that Jay Hop, and the dates
that followed, Fred Waring has
become a phenomenon in American
music; a showman who is equally
at home in theatres, on television,
recordings or radio. More than
any other American, h,e, has been
responsible for the growth
choral music not only in
professional productions of all
kinds, but in universities and com community
munity community groups. Concurrent with
Warings growth as an interpreter
of music for Americans were
composers writing about and for
our society; Berlin, Gershwin,
Warings commitment today is
to music that he believes is
destined to endure as opposed to
the fad of the fleeting hit
in folk, popular or-serious modern
music. He will bring his latest
collection of music-for-forever,
titled The Magic of Music, to
the stage of the Florida Gymnasium
tonight at 8;15.

A Useful Evaluation
Dont put this issue of the Alligator down without reading the letter
entitled A Look At The Trimester on the following page.
Former Asst. Prof. Peter Wickman is writing to the head of his
old department about his decision in July to leave UF for other parts.
In the letter, he examines, among other things, the trimester system
from the professors point of view.
Not being conversant with many professors, we have no way of
estimating how many others share Wickmans views. We would
wager that he is not alone, but that is based only upon our own feelings
about the trimester.
It is unfortunate that Wickman has a penchant for formal phrasing,
for it will mean that some will grow bored before they reach the meat
of his letter.
Therefore, let us just reprint this single paragraph, in the hope
that it will lure you to rgad the rest:
"Thirdly, I am convinced that the trimester system has vastly
increased the amount of cramming done by the students. This
circumstance evidently has already been institutionalized in the
university college as a concomitant of the so-called "progress test
system. No doubt, it is endemic in all universities, but in the past
year, it has reached epidemic proportions. Its trite but true to
reiterate that passing any test doesnt necessarily mean that the
student has made progress toward an education. Yet the frequent
scheduling of several of these tests in a week tends to emphasize
overmuch the so-called all -nighters, to the detriment of the students
health as well as his education. I repeat, the crux of education is
the teaching-learning process. For under the stimulus of good teaching
and in the solitude of his mind, the student must come to grips with
great ideas of our civilization and the conflicts and problems of our
contemporary society. This will not follow as a consequence from
cramming to out-guess the "flunkenstein computer which grades
his tests.
Second, anyone?

GOP Against Bond Issue?
In opposing the bond issue for university construction going before
Florida voters Nov. 5, some state Republicans have taken a weak
stance from which to build their party for the 1964 elections.
Opposition to the bond program quite properly will be judged as
purely obstructionist and partisan unless GOP leaders produce better
reasons for their position than have yet been disclosed.
The Republican position was stated most clearly in a recent speech
by Pinellas County State Rep. Charles R. Holley. The lawmakers
arguments were that additional university facilities are not needed
in Florida and, in any case, they should not be provided by "deficit
Republican members of the Legislature adopted this position at a
caucus last month in Orlando, but they decided to oppose the bond
program as individuals rather than as a group.
THIS IS a feeble pose, unlikely to be accepted even by most
Republicans, because neither of the criticisms on which it is based
holds up when judged beside the facts.
As for the deficit financing charge, Gov. Farris Bryant dispose d
of it over the weekend at a gathering in Tampa of leaders supporting
the bonds.
"No deficit is contemplated, the Governor said. We are pledging
a hard asset (the state tax on income of utility firms), a secure and
growing source of revenue, to the payment of every obligation which
we will incur. There will never be a deficit in this program.
No financing plan will please all Floridians. The one before voters
Nov. 5 is a practical way available immediately to meet the construction
needs of higher education. It is a bird in hand.
REP. HOLLEY'S argument that the bond issue is unnecessary
rings even more hollow than his financial objections.
. . The present needs of higher education did not appear suddenly
out of nowhere. Instead, they have been postponed by Legislature
after Legislature.
. . Florida voters will have an opportunity to start changing this
situation in November. They should, and we hope will, approve the
Issuance of bonds for higher education.
By opposing these much needed funds. Republican legislators are
gambling with the future of their party in state elections. Whether
as individuals or as a group will make little difference.

Honor Court Justice
Next week, the Honor Court
justices will consider a radical
enlargement of the Honor code.
We propose to enlarge the concept
of cheating. As presently defined,
cheating is the ' giving or receiving
of any information or material
with the intent of wrongfully aiding
yourself or another in any quiz,
final examination, academic paper,
or any other item which is con considered

Or Election?

I am writing relative to the
question of appointing or electing
a county superintendent of
education in Alachua County.
You will recall that this is one
of the constitutional amendments
that will be voted on November 5
when we vote on the bond issue
for higher education in Florida.
Alachua County is one of fifteen
counties that have asked that this
question be submitted to the
people. Since this is an important
issue for the students of the
University because it has a direct
bearing on the quality of education
that will be made available to them
in our public schools, I thought the
Alligator would like to run an
editorial calling to the attention of
students the importance of voting
on this issue.
When the Florida constitution
was adopted in the late 1880s,
it included a provision that the
county superintendent of schools
be elected by the voters along with
the other constitutional officers.
Since that time the character of
our school system has changed
considerably but this provision has
been retained. Now Florida finds
itself in the position of being
the only state in the nation where
all superintendents, even of large
city schools, are elected by popular
vote. r
As you know, the qualifications
for a superintendency now are
rather high and complex and the
best qualified person available
should be selected. This can be
done with a much greater
assurance by a board of education
charged with this responsibility
than by depending upon such a
qualified person to offer himself
as a candidate to the voters.
Moreover, the Supreme Court of
Florida has ruled that we cannot
put any qualifications on a
superintendent as long as he is
elected by the people. If he were
appointed by a board of education
the State Board of Education could
specify the minimum qualifications
which would have to be met by
such a person.
Since this is an important issue
on which the University of Florida
students must make a decision, I
hope you wall provide them with
information through the medium
of the Alligator. 1

We propose the following
addition: Cheating is the
intentional misrepresentation of
a material fact for personal
advantage while acting as a
The question is, what does the
legal jargon mean? The
Chancellor, Herb Blessing, the
originator of this amendment says,
this means LYING lying about
something important while acting
as a student. He explained that
being truthful is the very essence
of honor. The emphasis of honor
has centered too long on cheating,
stealing and passing bad checks.
We need a change of emphasis
to overall honesty, he said, as
an indication to students that there
is a lot more to honesty then
following these three parts of the
Honor Code. He said, a normal
penalty for lying would be much
less than for cheating on an exam.
This proposal has been
presented to the Student-Faculty
Advisory Council on Student
Affairs, which is made up of over
20 student and faculty leaders.
We have asked several of these
people to comment.

four phrases needed explaining:

important was the concept of
acting as a student.' Is a person
acting as a student only when in

on vacation or at the Florida-
Georgia football game?

Lets Spread Democracy

The democracy of today is one
based on a desire for ones own
individual freedom, rather than a
desire and love of freedom for all
men. The need to protect ones
own individual freedom gives
present democracy a defensive
attitude, rather than an ideal for
which a democracy can work.
The defensive attitude of
democracy can be seen best, in
comparison with Communism.
Communism expands with a
definite ideal in mind, based on
a working economic structure.
Democracy, however, has no
driving force to spread the ideal
of individual responsibility in
government. It is at present fully
occupied with containing and
repressing the spread of Com Communism.
munism. Communism. This is done in the U.S.
usually as a witch hunt rather
than through education, and in
foreign countries by trying to bribe
dictators to be friendly to the U.S.
rather than spreading the ideals
on which the U.S. is base. Thus
the u. S. is the force for the
status quo, whether it be
democracy or dictatorship.
The French Revolution in 1789
was the first militant force to
spread the ideal of liberty,
equality, and brotherhood. The
American Revolution in 1776 set
up the ideals of life, liberty, and
pursuit of happiness. The u. S.
changed its central government
when it adopted the Constitution,
and then retreated into isolation.
France, unlike the U.S., was one
of the most advanced countries in

it was his firm belief that such
a statement is necessary if our
student body is to realize
eventually that principles of honor
are operative on this campus.
Toba Ullman, WSA president,
said, If we are going to have
the Honor Code, it should be
broader and there should be a
greater awareness on the part of
the students. She referred to the
fact that WSA rules put women
dorm residents on their honor, and
said that students need to be
educated on what this addition and
the entire Honor Code means.'
Joe Marinelli, president, Men?
Presidents Cofincil, said, The
Advisory Council was confused
about its meaning.He felt it
was a fine idea, but that it needed
explanation. Like Toba Ullman, he
said, The student body needs to
be more aware of what the Honor
Code means. Most students just
have cheating in exams on their
minds when they think of the Honor
Court. Both he and Toba Ullnfan
felt this weekly column would help
educate the students.
Charlie Maloy, IFC president,
felt that the main reaction of the
council was that we are trying
to legislate morality, something
man hasnt been able to do in 2000
years. He said the spirit of the
proposal was good, but doubted the
practical application of it.
Paul Hendrick, Student Body
President, said, The Honor
System involves any important
breach of truth, but shouldnt cover
trivial human frailty. He felt the
key to the proposal was the word

on a eard or letter to Bob Mounts,

This will give the Honor Court
justices some guidance when it is
considered next week.

the world at the time of its
revolution. The Revolution failed;
one of the reasons was fear of
the democratic ideal on the part
of the European monarchs. Since
that time, democracy has never
been an initiating force.
The U. S. entered the First
World War in order to make the
world safe for democracy. The
fallacy, a posteriori, was that
evil could be destroyed, and then
we could sit by the fireside, pipe
in hand and faithful dog at knee.
Since any ideal is one that is
learned, it is necessary to
preserve the ideal by a militant
force. The Communists seem to
be able always to find a group of
people in each country sympathic
with their views, then educate
and arm them.
The U. S. has begun to make a
small effort to spread the good
of democracy; the peace Corps
and the Alliance for progress
are such efforts. However, these
are mostly economic efforts, not
specifically designed to spread
the democratic ideal. Communism,
it should be noted, is an effort
to spread an ideal based on
economic reform; Christianity is
an effort to spread an ideal based
on the salvation of the soul.
The u. S I believe, should set
up an organization to spread the
ideal democracy in foreign
countries along with the idea of
economic (industrial) revolution.
However, in the U. S. today, most
people are content to sit on their
own fat freedom and are not moved
by desire and love of freedom
for all men.


We appreciated the Oct. 22 letter,
of our good friend the Rev. Ed
gerckman and his interesting
quotes from old English Common
Law which was deftly interpreted
as precedent for further intrusion
upon the private rights of American
citizens. (We note in passing that
old English Common Law also
endorsed Trial by Ordeal and Trial
by Combat as legitimate methods
of deciding cases of law, as well
as Debtors Prison, hanging of
pickpockets, and other similar
precedents which, strangely
enough, most people do not
construe as sufficient justification
for a change in current practice.
Our real issue however is not
English Common Law, nor is it
integration. As the Oct. 24
Alligator editorial so wisely
pointed out, Folks downtown dont
even mention the idea of race
anymore. The real issue is the
inalienable right of every
American to reserve a significant
private area of freedom of
judgement, and freedom of choice.
Our Liberal friends, clouded as
their minds are by local emotional
issues, predicably try to combat
the issue only on racial grounds
of integration vs. discrimination.
And on these, their hallowed
jousting grounds strewn with
Liberal gauntlets hurled down.with
righteous wrath, they march,
picket and orate, totally blind to
the real issues underlying the
whole matter. The deeper, more
obviously natural grounds for our
conflict is not integration, or
whether the Cl is right or wrong,
but rather, how large a share of
our personal freedom can we
preserve for ourselves and our
children. These picket lines and
proposed legislation associated
with them are viewed by many as
a direct assault upon our freedom
to choose between two sides of an
issue, neither side of which is
wholly good nor bad.
We are perfectly willing to listen
to intelligent discussion of both
sides, but coercion and. pressure
merely antagonize. Intelligent dis discussion
cussion discussion respects our perogatives
as American citizens; coercion and
pressure implies contempt for our
judgement and a desire to replace
our freedom of choice with despotic
authoritarianism. And this, no
matter how benignly paternal t h e
administration, is inherently
repugnant. Control of America
belongs with the American people;
thinking Americans will not
surrender this control piecemeal

Safeguards In The College Building Amendment

UF Council for
Higher Education
Money, the all important basis
of our modern society, is often
scarce, especially in situations
where it is needed most. For this
reason, the designers of the
College Building Amendment were
sure to include specific limitations
and safeguards in the bill's format.
The voters who back
amendment need assurance that
the money involved is to be
properly protected.
The first and probably most
important safeguard is the limit
on the amount of bonds to be
issued. During the 1963-64
biennium, a maximum of $75
million in bonds is all that may
be issued. For any biennium
afterwards, no more than SSO
million may be sold except by a

A Look At The Trimester

July 3. 1963
Franklin A. Doty, Chairman
Social Science Department
University College
University of Florida
Gainesville, Florida
Dear Frank:
I should like to respond to your
request for my reaction to the
trimester system, and at the same
time share a few other relevant
Since the trimester is a fait
accompli imposed from above, I
doubt that any serious alterations
or reform will be undertaken as
the result of any evaluation done
by those in the best position to
know both its positive and negative
aiiects and effects, viz, those in
positions like yourself who have
had to act as mediator for the less
salubrious facets of the system.
My first feeling regarding the
trimester is that it is an attempted
change in the guise of productivity.
And as such it comes from the
wrong source, viz., above. It
would seem from our study and
reflection that the sine qua non of
a reform in higher education must
include the studied
recommendations of the experts,
i.e., the professors, the needs of
the students, and the demands of
the la'rger society. My
observations of the machinations
surrounding the adoption of the
trimester constrain me to conclude
that the first two were not in on
its implementation, and it seems
unlikely that the needs of society
were consulted but rather society
was oversold on its value.
Secondly, in the name of economy
of time and personnel, it has been
a prolific extravagance. For
instance, administrators and
academic counselors have spent
prodigious blocs of time
registering students and listening
to appeals from students whose
academic programs were
endangered by difficulties which
could not or were not anticipated.
Concerted efforts have been made
to establish criteria whereby the
student would be told how many
hours to take, etc. Thus, numerous
strictures have been imposed
which in effect add to the degree
of conformity already exisiting
in our university system. Needless
to say, faculty members have
increasingly found themselves
acting as functionaries,
interpreting the rules and
regulations to the student, instead
of focusing their time and energy
on research and the teaching
learning process, which, need I
add, are the crucial functions of a

two-thirds vote of the members
in each house of the legislature.
These limitations are conservative
maximums set up to insure the
ability of the utilities tax to repay
the bonds. Actually, at the present
income from this tax, a larger
program could be safely conducted,
but it was decided that $75 million
would be enough in the next
biennium to adequately cover
building expenditures and yet be
extremely safe. Further, the
amendment states that the Board
of Education, the agency authorized
to issue the bonds, will at no time
have the authority to issue bonds
that require more than 75 percent
of the monies realized from the
utilities tax, based on the average
income from this source for the
two preceeding years.
Anothe'r important limitation to
the amendment is that the interest
on the proposed bonds cant exceed

Wednesday, Oct .30,1963 The Florida Alligator

Thirdly, I am convinced that
the trimester system has vastly
increased the amount of cramming
done by the students. This
circumstance evidently had
already been institutionalized in
the university college as a con concomitant
comitant concomitant of the so-called
progress test system. No doubt,
it is endemic in all universities,
but in the past year, it has reached
epidemic proportions. Its trite but
true to reiterate that passing any
test doesnt necessarily mean the.
student has made progress toward
an education. Yet the frequent
scheduling of several of these tests
in a week tends to emphasize
overmuch the so called
all nighters," to the detriment
of the students health as well as
his education. I repeat the crux
of education is the teaching
learning process. For under the
stimulus of good teaching and in
the solitude of his mind the student
must come to grips with great
ideas of our civilization and the
conflicts and problems of our
contemporary society. This will
not follow as a consequence from
cramming to out-guess
the flunkenstein computer which
grades his tests.
Finally, (arent you cheered?)
this superimposed system has
stifled and stymied genuine
endeavors to bring reform and
change, from one of the most
productive sources, the faculty.
What better answer when faced
with criticism at the reliance on
mass lectures and machine scored
tests in the university college
by a committee of the Southern
Association, then to feply that the
trimester does not give the
instructor ample time to use or
to grade other evaluative
techniques. And of course, there
are no funds available to provide
for assistants. Parenthetically,
might I note that the community
college where I am employed this
summer limits its class size to
25 and pay the faculty enough so
that he gets involved in the
evaluation of his students.
In this and other instances, the
trimester system has been used
rather well by good faculty
members to frustrate needed
attempts at fundamental reforms.
In the name of productivity then,
the trimester has augmented
that procrustean bed of conformity
which is the bane of any viable
program of higher education.
These observations should be
tempered by the highly probably
conclusion on my part, that the
university college does not
unreservedly seek reforms withor
without the trimester.
Candor, if you will allow it,

4.5 per cent. However, since the
bonds are sold through public
bidding, the average interest rate
should amount to 3 per cent or
less. The utilities tax, being a
dependable financial source, will
play a large part in lowering the
interest rates bid for.
Under the bond program, no
project can be financed unless it
has been approved by a vote of
three-fifths of each house in the
state legislature. Also, the State
Bond Review Board must review
the bonds to be issued to determine
their fiscal soundness and whether
such financing has legislative
approval. These safeguards are to
assure proper and correct use of
the money acquired.
Quoting Mr. Ray E. Green,
Comptroller for the State of

leads me to state two reasons for
this conclusion. First is the
continued attempts to standardize
the curriculum in the university
college. This has conventionalized
the course, even in the highly
reputable social science
department (C-l), e.g., such con conventionalization,
ventionalization, conventionalization, in my lexicon,is
very little different from
conformity, if only by a matter
of degree. I marvel that many
who advocate this academic
humbug are reputable scholars
in their own right.
My second reason for this
conclusion is summed up in one
word; sycophancy." This is well
illustrated by the choice of a
sexagenarian as Dean. I revere
him, but it seems axiomatic that
reforms are seldom if ever led
by someone at this age. Another
is that sycophants seek to
maintain the status quo at all cost."
I have added by voice to the
cacophony of protest to the
increased conformity in the edu educational
cational educational curriculum of the
university college while at the
University of Florida. And I am
confident, Frank, that you have not
observed cvnicismor defeatism as
pervasive attitudes in my actions.
Yet when 1 find that 1 lack faith
in the means used to attain the
ends of education, then my hope
of being a part of such a program
wanes. This together with the
feeling that senior members" of
the C-l faculty lack faith in me
and in others who have advocated
changes more ably than 1, then I am
constrained to tender my
resignation as assistant professor
of social science effective July 1.
In my three yea rs at trie
University, I have found my
contacts with my colleagues
generally very rewarding and
stimulating. I cannot speak too
highly of the gentlemanly and
humane manner in which you have
conducted yourself as department
chair man.
Since I am confident of my
competencies and aware of my
inadequacies, I feel that ] have
stimulated and encouraged my
quota of students in that period.
No doubt I have also left others
unaffected, and even alienated
some. Such is the cost of desiring
self-fulfillment in others as well
as in ones self. I carry many
interesting and useful
reminiscences with me. Needless
to say, I find myself enhanced
rather than embittered by these
brief years.
Peter M. Wickman
Former Assistant Professor
of Social Science
University of Florida

Florida, Historically in the field
of finance, utility tax bonds have
been recognized as very stable
security, I would expect such bonds
to receive a very high rating
classification from rating bureaus,
arid that they would be well received
by the investment bankers and
The amendment,possessing sucl
limitations and safeguards as it
does, is therefore seen to be a
highly qualified issue. However,
there is still probably dissention
among the voters, it is generally
agreed that money is needed to
finance the construction-of college
buildings in this state. The
problem is which means of
financing we should use.

Sidle Gives Tigers

Auburn quarterback Jimmy Sidle
took the snap from center, rolled
to his right across the movie
screen in Florida scout Jimmy
Dunns office, and proceeded to
run for eight yards against Georgia
Youll see Sidle do that about
15 times a ball game, Dunn said,
switching the projector off.
Sidle is a 6-2, 210-pound junior
and the prime reason why Auburn,
which Floridas unpredictable
Gators face Saturday in Auburn,
Ala., is undefeated. The Tigers
claim a perfect 5-0 record, are in
a three-way tie with Ole Miss
and Louisiana State for the South Southeastern
eastern Southeastern Conference (SEC) lead and
are ranked seventh nationally.
The Tigers were rated anywhere
from sixth to tenth in pre-season
SEC polls.
Sidle currently tops the SEC
in rushing with 494 yards in 82
carried for a 6.0 average. The
talented Tiger signal caller ranks
only behind Georgias Larry Rake Rakestraw
straw Rakestraw in total offense with 922
This Auburn team is a kind
of reversal from Auburns
defense-minded teams of a few
seasons ago, Dunn said. This
season theyre weak of defense,
and realize theyre probably going
to get scored on.
So to win, he continued,
Auburn relies on its great offense
to simply outscore you, and its
worked so far.
A glance at Auburn scores this
season backs up Dunns statement.
The Tigers have beaten Tennessee
23-19, Houston 21 -14, Kentucky
14-13, Georgia Tech 28-21 and
little Chattanooga 28-0 in their
only shutout.
Sidle and three highly advertised
starting backfield mates provide
the scoring punch.

Fredrickson and Rawson are
both Florida boys. Fredrickson
was object of numerous college
recruiting efforts after his high
school days in Hollywood, Fla.,
before deciding on Auburn. Rawson
is from Pensacola.
Another departure from Auburn
teams of old is this years line.
Used to be Auburn would always
have a couple of big tackles
weighing 240 or 250 pounds, Dunn
said. Well, this year theyve
got some guys up on the line who
can really run.
The Tigers largest tackle is
listed at 220 pounds.
In addition to overall team speed,
Dunn lists the Auburn kicking game
as a main strength.
A good kicker helps counteract
a weak defense, and Auburn has a
really good one in John Kilgore,
he said.
Kilgore currently leads the
nations kickers with an
impressive 45.9 yard average on
22 boots.

Dade JC had beaten the FSU
Next Monday, the harriers face
Auburn here and try to run the
varsity mark to four straight and
keep the freshmen undefeated
through six meets.

UF Men With White
Uniforms After Auburn

Os The Gator Staff
The Gators were back in their
lucky white uniforms yesterday
as they went through passing drills
and light dummy work.
Head coach Ray Graves said
he wasnt superstitious, but he
respected the superstitions of
others. This season the Gators
have yet to win a game while
wearing the Blue uniforms, and
have yet to lose while wearing the
white uniforms.
Graves blamed the Gators up
and down season on the nature of
football as played today.
With todafs tougher
schedules, multi-offenses and de defenses,
fenses, defenses, the undefeated season is
rapidly becoming as extinct as
the Dodo bird, Graves said.
Auburn has the most versatile
offense of anyone we will face
this season, preparing for this
game will also help us against
Georgia, Graves said.
When you stop to think that
Sidle alone has averaged over
200 yards a game offensively it
gives you an idea of what we are

Why it took the box idea so long to
hit the truck industry is a mystery to us.
The Volkswagen Truck's been in that
shape for almost 13 years.
When VW designed it they had some something
thing something special in mind. A truck that could
hold a lot. And didn't rake half a block
to park.
So they built a box.
One major change they made over
the horse-drawn model was to put the
horses in back. That's for extra traction
in mud, sand and snow.
You've probably heard about the
VW's air-cooled engine. (No water. No
anti-freeze.) But did you know that this

Coaches Pleased With Dupree

Although unhappy with
Saturdays loss to LSU, Florida
coaches couldnt be more pleased
with fullback Larry Dupree.
Dupree, who carried the ball
23 times for a net of 60 yards
against the tough Bengal defense,
turned in one of his finest games
of the season and upped his rushing
mark to 456 yards on 109 carries.
The Macclenny junior, came
within inches of breaking away for
the distance on at least two carries,
and most of the time turned routine
one or two yard gains into big
ones with great individual effort.
I dont believe enough can be
said about this boy as a running
back, says Florida head coach
Ray Graves. He does things so
easily you sometimes fail to
realize what remendous individual

gine? engine? It puts out 25% more horsepower
than the old power plant. Yet it still
averages 24 mpg. On regular gas.
Inside, the VW is roomy enough to
carry 1,830 pounds. Nearly twice the
load of regular trucks. (Yet it's 2-3 feet
shorter. And weighs about half as much.)
Loading bulky things is almost easy.
A VW's got 5 doors. Two in front. Two
wide ones on the side. And one in back.

So now you know why the VW's in the

Dupree's rushing total against
LSU, incidentally, was exactly what
the Gators netted running with the
football. This goes along with the
Floriday pattern this year.
This weekend, Florida gets the
task of facing unbeaten, eighth eighthranked
ranked eighthranked Auburn there, in a stadium
where the Gators have never won
a football game.
It should be an offensive battle
from the start, with Florida
matching Dupree against Auburn's
great backs ie 1 d--quarterback
Jimmy Sidle, halfbacks Tucker
Frederickson and George Rose
and fullback Larry Rawson.

Tigers last Homecoming loss was

'Go Gladiators
Fanus Proclaimed

While looking through some old
books we discovered an old, dust
covered volume of ancient
parables. One parable appropriate
for our troubled times.
By Cassius clavius
Teller of Ancient Parables
Once there was in the land of
Upper Flandavious (UF), a state
in the Roman Empire, great
consternation over the way the
local group of Gladiators had been
doing in recent circuses.
The Ruler of the state, Floridus
Fanus, called a meeting of the
local council to discuss the cause
of the Gladiators drop in the Ouncus
Present at the council assembly
were Fanus and his deputies, Head
Gladiator Rey Gravius, several
scribes, students from the local
Lyceum and many Flandavious

. "Go Gladiators"

alumni. Each spoke in turn.
Floridus Fanus rose and
addressed Hey Gravius.
Why, after I, my deputies and
the people of Upper Flandavious
went to the circus on Saturns
Day to see you beat those lions,
did you suffer such stinging
They had a fired-up team,
said Gravius. The lion play was
as tough as I've seen and we
couldnt budge them.
Fanus questioned the scribes
and they replied. - <
We forecasted the Gladiators
to win by five, because the lions
had many injuries and the
Gladiators looked so good against
the great elephants. We also
figured that because it was the
day of the Great Gathering of
Flandavious alumni, the Gladiators
would win, answered the head
An alumnus stepped forward and
I don't see why we should
put up with Rey Gravius if his
Gladiators cant win everytime I
return for the Great Gathering.
Even though I was full of nectar

at the time, I could see they werent
doing their best.
Students from the local Lyceum
. . "lion play tough"
stepped forward and asked to
address Floridus Fanus.
The first student spoke.
I went to the circus to root
for the Gladiators, but when they
got begged down near the Golden
Lion, I lost interest. Im through
rooting for the Gladiators.
A second student spoke.
I too was rooting for the
Gladiators and I was very unhappy
that they lost. Though Im
disappointed, I still think our
Gladiators are the best. They can
beat the Warring Eagles next week
if we all get behind them.
You are a wise student, Fanus
interrupted. I see that some of
you are down on the Gladiators
because they lost to the lions,
but I know the Gladiators can be
the best in the Empire if we all
stick behind them.
"Therefore, I command you to go
.. ."Gladiators are best"
to the place of the silver bird to
see the Gladiators off and, win or
lose, I want you to welcome them
when they return.
Fanus stood and proclaimed to
the masses. Go Gladiators, it
SHALL be done.
