'T'HE contract meal program

Heres A Saving Idea

Os The Gator Staff
Students feeling the pocketbook
pinch at this time of year can
save $3-5 per week on food by
participating in the UFs Contract
Meal Program, according to Food
Service Director Gay H. Welborn.
The meal program offers
students a total of 15 meals a week,
Monday through Friday, for a total
of $10.30 including tax.
At present the plan is offered
only in the main cafeteria, but
after Dec. 2 it will be available
in all Food Service cafeterias
on campus, he said.
Welborn emphasized the size of

For breakfast, for instance, he

The dinner and supper menus
are just as liberal, Welborn said.
The menus are served on a three threeweek

The Greatness Os President
John F. Kennedy
EDITORS NOTE: The editorial below, reprinted from the Gainesville
Sun, is the best we have seen on the tragic death of President Kennedy.
A man in mufti mounted a convertible Friday in Dallas and rode into
heroic immortality.
The world knew him as John F. Kennedy.
SomehJw we are repelled by the torrent of words set off by the
assassins bullet. With all true meaning stripped from them, we are
swamped with such adjectives as stunned, dismayed, shattered, shocked
and sorrowful. And we are overcome with hindsight warnings prophetic
remarks, and iffy speculations.
Much of this has come from broadcast commentators, those unfor unfortunate
tunate unfortunate fellows with the task of making noise to fiil the silent void. Some
of it has come from tiny people edging into the limelights fringe and
hoping for passing reference in history books yet to be written.
We are reluctant to join the wordmakers. But the tragedy of President
Kennedys death would be magnified if we did not glean from it some
object lessons, however terribly taught.
Our state and our immediate area do not qualify as staunch Kennedy
boosters. In 1960, Mr. Kennedy lost Florida by 46,000 votes and Ala Alachua
chua Alachua County by 650 votes. Bare majorities supported him in most of the
counties clustered around Alachua.
The majority of our audience, then, is composed of persons with great
respect for the presidency, with probable respect for Mr. Kennedy as a
personality, with some respect for his foreign policy, but with no high
regard for his domestic policies.
So we expect no local unanimity on Mr. Kennedys importance in
the roll call of American Presidents.
But Mr. Kennedy was great. Great not in the sense of Franklin D.
Roosevelt, who aleviated hunger. Great not in the sense of Woodrow
Wilson, sacrificial lamb for nationalistic gods. Great not in the sense
of Theodore Roosevelt, builder of the empire.
Mr. Kennedys greatness was hewn from the same rock as that of
the Great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln.
One hundred and three years ago Mr. Lincoln posed for a photograph
by Matthew Brady, then proceeded to make a speech at Copper Union in
New York. He said later that the photograph and the speech did more
than anything else to gain him the presidency. His famous talk had one
theme the necessity to end mans inhumanity to man slavery.
And, twisting the old European concept of importance of the sword, Mr.
Lincoln declared that right makes might.
Mr. Kennedy was that type of man.
When struck down in Dallas, Practical Politician Kennedy was re rebuilding
building rebuilding fences which Idealistic Kennedy had knocked down. Convinced
that right makes might, he fended off Communist forces with one hand
while using the other hand to clear a path for Americans oppressed to
join the human race. Out of the Constitutions dry parchment and Su Supreme
preme Supreme Court wordiness, Mr. Kennedy fashioned the nations newest
nourishment -- not for the body, but for the soul.
Like Mr. Lincoln, the goal he set was not popular. Like Mr. Lincoln,
his acts were not acclaimed. &tke Mr. Lincoln he died a violent death.
Like Mr. Lincoln, his ideals will persevere.
How does one grieve such a man? With wailing and gnashing of teeth?
With lamantation and self-debasement? With sackcloth and ashes?
Or do we offer a prayer for his spirit, thank God for his dwelling
amidst us, grope hopefully for leadership in the void he left, and un uncomplainingly
complainingly uncomplainingly pick up our own tiny burdens?
However manfully we confront the loss, our throats burn slightly and
irritation creeps behind our eyes and our thoughts are less crisp.
All this, because we weep inside.

was brought out in this article,
primarily that under the se semester

graduate in three years without un unt

may I ask why this pestilence has
been placed not only upon the stu student

I need not point out any of the
numerous faults of the trimester,
as many have been brought out
in the past and will probably
be shown in the future. Ignorance
can breed nothing but fear and dis discontent;
content; discontent; therefore, I feel justified
in asking that someone in authority
explain to all concerned (e.g. in
the Alligator) what this system has
accomplished thus far, its good
points, its bad points (in brief),
and the plans for its future. The
fewer trimester complaints
may be due to the lack of response
to such complaints in the past by
those in such a position to do so.

fied, unjustified, and indicates complete
ignorance of the process by which
federal grants for support of basic

I would like to outline briefly

the steps involved in obtaining a

1) A request for support, neces necessarily

merit of the proposal is made
individually by seven to ten uni university

3) Critical comments are
sought from three to five other

experts in the specific field of
the proposal.
4) The evaluation panel,
together with the program
directors of the Foundation, con consider

pertinent to the proposal.
5) If the proposal is truly mer meritorious,

adjusted with the framework of
available funds to support the pro project

minimal level.
This procedure, although long,
difficult, and sometimes ago agonizing,

excellent scientific productivity at
minimal adequate cost. Other
federal agencies use similar pro procedures
cedures procedures in evaluating requests for
research support.
Thus, the superficial catch catchword

ignorance and bias of the writer,
but also tends to undermine the
confidence of the people in a pro process

a fairer shake? The answer would
have to be no. Especially the group
of lowly independents.
This group has never gotten de decent

While waiting to pick up my seat

with a Florida student who was
also waiting. He had the annual
gripe that he has never received
a seat past the thirty-yard line. He
later explained that he had picked
up some seats the day before,
Monday, which were somewhere in
section twenty-nine. Theres no
need to explain "Brat! He was there
on Tuesday to try and get a better
section. Well, he had a good chance,
since he was the ninth person in

To make a long story short,
when we got to the window there
were no seats available in sections
32, 33, or 34. There were only
three rows available in 31, But
who wants to sit on the firft row!
The young man and I had the same
question: where had all the seats
gone in sections 32 33, and 34?
There should be at least 9,000
seats in sections 31 through 34,
not counting the band and the card
If someone could explain where

In recent weeks, many
letters have been written
to the Alligator concerning
the actions of various
fraternities. These letters
have told of specific
instances .-where
fraternities have been
responsible for certain
minor acts of uncivil
conduct. I feel though, that
underlying these letters is
a general anti-fraternity
attitude amongst a good
portion of the student body.
I feel that it is time that
someone on this campus
seriously examined the
basis of this anti-fraternity
feeling and whether or not
it is justified.
I came to this school
knowing very little about
fraternities. Since then, I

year of development here at
Florida. The only students who
can really compare the trimester
to the semester system as it
works here are those classified

lower division students who were

the ones who have experienced the

find only one major good point
for the trimester: that a degree

I am concerned with the emphasis
on bestowing degrees to as many
students as possible. I consider
this wrong, because in the long
run it lowers the value of the
degree, and new standards must
be created for the business world
to judge job candidates. Today,
the high school diploma is prac practically
tically practically worthless, and the
bachelors degree is fast ap approaching

forces more students to try to get
into graduate schools, to try to
earn the added degree that will

is increased pressure on the
student, in all his academic acti activitis,

But the sifting-out of students
by means of the trimester does
precisely this same thing;
in creating the additional pressure

comment on the values of this
state and nation when people are
reduced to state of exam-taking exam-takingmachines,

student to gain the full benefits
of collegiate experience. A whole

I will try to show in future

very basic purposes of

in practice, that in its very

The world may be a cruel hard

They are merely the
actions of individuals and
are not caused by the fact
that they are in

the criticisms of those
whose football seats were
recently usurped could not
be validly applied to the
fraternity system.
All the criticisms that
I will write in the near
future will be based on the
essential characteristics
of fraternities and the
harm that they do, not only
to both its pledges and
brothers, but to outsiders
as well. I hope that these
criticisms will be viewed
objectively by independents

I resent having my youth forcibly

topics in class more deeply. I
resent being dehumanized.
I accept the challenge of the
trimester, because I must. It
is no excuse for poor performance.
However, the idea of making it
any sort of universal system is
totally revolting to me, and I shall
do all in my power to prevent it.

Children Happier
Members of UF sororities are spending their afternoons on the seventh
floor of the J. Hillis Miller Health Center, according to general volunteer
coordinator Mrs. Sidney Jourard.
The sororities are taking part in a program to entertain the children
on the pediatrics floor she said.
This month the children are being visited by members of Kappa Alpha
Theta (KAT) sorority. In charge of the KATs visiting program is Patty
Tabita, 2UC.
Three to four coeds daily visit the children to read and play with them,
Miss Tabita said. The girls visiting have a lot of fun, she said,
and are really enjoying the experience.
No activities are planned for Thanksgiving by the KATs because most
members are leaving for the holiday, she said.
The children visited are in the four-six age group and really appreciate
the visits because their parents are usually notl|ere, Miss Tabita said.
It is a rewarding experience for the children and for the girls doing the
visiting, she added.
In charge in December is the Delta Phi Epslion sorority.

State Rep. Ralph Turlington has
hailed the passage of the college

The indignant cries of protest
were answered by the 57,773 spec spectators

bands marched solemnly onto the
field. As the colors passed and
the muffled drums draped in black
echoed the heartbeats of everyone
in the giant stadium, the fans rose
and quietly paid tribute to their
fallen leader.
The bands played the National
Anthem and when it was over there
