Our Town
(An Editorial)
(See storythis page)
Im sorry it turned out this way.
The Board of Student Publications - honestly or otherwise
- made a definite mistake Tuesday night when they chose
Walker Lundy over Bob Wilson.
Wilson had served as managing editor. His technical
ability and maturity are unexceeded.
Lundy will make a competent editor, perhaps, but his
decision making ability and his technical ability are far
below that of Bob Wilson.
It was disappointing Tuesday night because once again
student politicians decided they had to step in and try to
obtain control of the students free voice on campus. Student
politicians evidently decided that elections were coming up
soon, i.e., this spring, and it would be better to play it safe.
Its disappointing, but some student politicians decide time
and again that the Alligator is a threat to their every whim.
Frankly, these politicians are right. The Alligator IS a
threat to the wrong whims. And there are more than a handful
of these.
After a year of editing the Alligator Ive seen a lot of things
on this campus - many good, many bad, although the good
far outweighs the bad. But the bad is a dangerous minority.
I hope to graduate in a month, so Ill be here a few more
weeks - because I feel I owe the new editor some help
and guidance and also because I owe much to some highly
genuine and qualified persons, especially in the journalism
school who have helped me so much.
But Im disappointed, very much so, and I had nothing
to gain from the selection of either man.
It is a disappointment because politics of one sort or
another again unnecessarily interfered with a newspapers
responsibility to the public. p L Jr

Mr. Wilsons decision, Board

Theft Os White Excuse Slips
Prompts Infirmary Change

Theft of a handful of white
excuse slips from the UF Infir Infirmary
mary Infirmary has prompted officials to
switch to pink absence blanks.
The change, made recently is an
effort to nullify unlawful use of
the stolen slips, Dr. John T. Wright
of the Infirmary said this week.
Wright said the theft occured
Nov. 8 when a boy, presumed to
be a UF student, came into the
Infirmary and told the desk clerk
that Dr. Harold Braswell had asked
him to pick up the white slips.
The youth was instructed to ob obtain
tain obtain them at the supply room.
He succeeded in getting the excuse
blanks, but hustled by Braswell
on his way out of the building,
Wright said. r
Dean of Men Frank T. Adams
said he has no clues as to the
identity of the thief.
I havent paid any attention to
it since they issued the new slips,
Adams said.
He charged that the boy violated
the honor code in stealing the
excuse slips.
Concerning punishment for the
youth, if apprehended, Adams said,
I think this would be a matter
for the Honor Court to settle.
Both Wright and Adams said
they haven't heard of any white
slips being used since the theft.
The pink slips are identical to
the white ones in content, Wright
He also commented that admin administration
istration administration policy in issuing absence
excuse blanks from the Infirmary
has changed.
There began to be so many
visits to the Infirmary that the
excuses came into poor repute and
professors wouldnt believe them.
Now we excuse the student only

cases, he said.

Council Making Strides
With its tradition of conservatism and caution, and its repute as
a monolithic structure, no one would have been much surprised if
the Roman Catholic Ecumenical Council called by Pope John XXIII
and continued by his successor, Pope Paul VI, had taken several years
to reach any important decisions.
As things have gone, however, a great many American citizens are
beginning to think that the UJS. Congress could take some lessons in
speed and incisiveness from the great conference in St. Peters Ba Basillica.
sillica. Basillica.
If one were to judge by the progress made during the 1962 and 1963
sessions of both bodies, Congress is the one behaving like an oldster of
19 centuries while the Council has the sprightliness one might expect of
the governing body of the nation which prides itself upon being the worlds
most modern.
In two days last week, the Ecumenical Council overwhelmingly ap approved
proved approved a dozen amendments altering forms of worship which have been
in effect for approximately 1500 years.
The most notable of these is expected eventually to result in the
substitution of the vernacular--the current language of the community communityfor
for communityfor Latin in the greater part of the service of the Mass.
To members of non-liturgical churches, this may not seem too impor important
tant important a change, In spite of the importance attached to Holy Communion
in all Christian denominations.
But the Mass is the very center of Roman Catholic worship--so much
so that one of the amendments adopted is intended to make the sermon,
or homily, recapture its proper importance in Catholic services.
In making the first order of business changes in the Mass, therefore,
the Council gave indication of how far it intends to go in basic reforms.
Authorization of the liturgical changes paves the way for structural
alternations of a major nature. f
As directed by Pope Paul, and led by his move to internationalize
the Roman Curia and distribute some of its powers to the bishops, the
net effect will be to decentralize the government and direction of the
church. Episcopal sees will be able to make a great many decisions here hereto
to hereto fore reserved strictly for Rome.
This does not contemplate, Paul made clear, weakening the ultimate
authority of tne Pope. But it does mean that in practice the bishops
throughout the world will have a great deal more independence of
authority and action.
This democratization, if it may so be described, may spread further.
Council delegates last week indicated that there is strong support for
raising the dignity and importance of the priesthood.
The present schema on church structure deals rather casually with
this subject. But as Archbishop Hurley of Durban, South Africa, pointed
out, the priest is the very voice of the bishop.
It depends upon the priest, the Archbishop said, whether the voice of
the bishop is communicated to the flock "like the trumpet of an archangel
--or the reading of a telephone book.
Admittedly there may be some titanic struggles between the con conservatives
servatives conservatives and liverals of the church in the days ahead. But the progress
of the Council thus far is indicative of a dynamic vigor which augurs
well for the vitality of Christianity through all its denominations.

Evil Trimester?

American youth has finally met
with defeat, or so you might as assume
sume assume if you have been reading the
Alligator for the past several
weeks. And the beast that seems
to be defeating this segment of
our population is the trimester
system. It appears to be a fact
from what I have read and heard
that the trimester along with its
evil pals, the progress test and
the IBM Flunkenstein, is
smothering intellectualism, pro producing
ducing producing mass minds and neurotics
who survive off caffeine and other
tranquilizers, along with various
other evils.
Absurd, isnt it? Why of course
it is.
The real fault with the trimes trimester,

fuse refuse to admit, is the fact that this
horrible ideology has created an
obstacle for which American youth

American culture in all its aspects,
including social life. How many
foreign students can you think of
who have never had a date during
their stay at this institution? Can
they be expected to take back an
enthusiastic report on life among
the Americans?
All of which leads us back to the
original question: what can one
person do? One answer lies in
meeting and sharing with a foreign
student the insights gained in 20-
plus years of living in this culture.
And the knowledge gained will, in inevitably,
evitably, inevitably, be a two-way proposition.
The first step, for those inter interested,

Os The Gator Staff
Where are all the critics of Ray Graves and the Gators who made
themselves so prominent after Florida was tied by an obviously
inferior team from Mississippi State? For those of you who have
not been following their progress Mississippi State has beaten Auburn
and LSU. Two teams upon which we were unable to score. To an
obviously inferior team our hats are off. o
Also taking a back seat is that brash band of warriors who were so
impressed with the work that Graves was doing this season they found
it necessary to hang an image of him from their.dorm so they wouldn't
miss him while he and the team were in Jacksonville. Such touching
devotion should not go unrewarded. Maybe we could find out who they
were and hang them in effigy of course.
The teams victory against Georgia may give the boys impetus to
finish strongly this season with victorys over Miami and Florida State.
A 6-3-1 record isnt bad. In fact it would be better than last years
Gator Bowl team. However, a bowl bid is not in the offering this
season as there is an abundance of good teams throughout the nation.
But lets face facts. Florida was lucky to beat Georgia. The Gators
made too many mistakes. It was our luck that Georgia made more.
Graves has stated the week long layoff has given his team a mehtal
rest they so badly needed. If we are to finish out the season with a
respectable record there will have to be less fumbling and fewer
mental errors which lead to missed blocking assignments and penalties.
With Mira, the Gators arent playing against a good college quarter quarterback,
back, quarterback, but a good pro quarterback. It has been said that several teams
in the NFL are willing to finish last in their league this year just to
get first draft rights at Mira. If Floridas defensive backfield does not
come up with one of its best efforts of the season it could be a long,
hot night for the Orange and Blue.
It is time for one of the unsung heroes of the Gators to come forth
and be recognized. Tommy Shannon was the target or much beratement
at the first of the season. That guy cant pass, was an oft heard
comment around campus. After eight games Shannon has thrown 790
yards and has a good chance to net over 100 yards passing. Shannon
is also within the schools all-time record of most yards gained through
the air. The record was set in 1950 when Haywood Sullivan threw
for 1098 yards. We should have more bad passers.
Looking Ahead
Two weekends from now the Gators play host to the Seminoles of
Florida State. It seems, however that pre-game shennanJgans have
already started. Some students from that girls school up north
have struck at two of the UFs more prominant landmarks. The
base of the statue of A.A. Murphy, past president of the UF, and the
Norman Hall underpass are now painted with pro-Seminole slogans.
Florida State has never beaten Florida in the short history of the
series. The closest they could come was a 3-3 tie in 1961. However,
coach Bill Peterson has a strong football team this year which romped
over Miami 28-0 and made shambles of the vaunted North Carolina
defense in a 14-0 Homecoming win. The Seminoles think this could be
the year.

the remaining forward and center
Peek, a 6-foot-ll giant who

played his high school ball at
Pensacola Escambia, has been
tried at both positions and is now

Petersburg, has shown rapid im improvement
