grave consequences that even the
majority of brothers consider it
an evil of the fraternity system,
(but a necessary evil).
It may sound incongrous for me
to say that I feel being in a frat fraternity

a system that tends to keep out
a small group is evil. The explan explanation
ation explanation lies in the fact that the frat fraternities

conviced a great deal of society
that fraternity men are in and
independents are out, and that
pledging is a test to see if one

mage. damage. I am not saying that this is
simply a possibility in theory, but
that it is a fact. I have seen cases
where blackballed pledges have
completely lost all self-confidence
and have been forced to drop out
of school because of feelings of
shame and inability to concentrate
on studies. The same feeling (to
a smaller degree) is felt by an in individual
dividual individual who does not get a bid in
the first place..
I would also like to point out the
effects of this system upon the
brothers. Since all the brothers
were once pledges, they knew first
hand how the pledge feels. But,
the longer they remain under the
influence of the narrow standards
of their fraternity the more they
are convinced that tnere is no ex excuse
cuse excuse for not being like the brothers
in their house. A pledge who fails
in this respect must be blackballed,
for the good of the house. At

attitude such that what he is doing

nessed witnessed this time and again.
In some cases the blackball
comes as a shock to a pledge who
has tried hard to meet the fra fraternitys
ternitys fraternitys so called high ideals.
But, more often the pledge is
warned by a friend in the brother brotherhood
hood brotherhood and then must go through
the agonizing experience of trying
to impress the brother who
he knows is against him. There is
no one around to tell him that
there is no reason for him to have
to satisfy the very critical, and
quite often stupid standards
of someone no better than him.
There is no one who will encourage
him to act himself. There is no one
to tell him that he may very well
be a great asset to society and has
tremendous potential. Instead,
even his friends in the brotherhood
tell him he should plead to the
man who wears the brothers pin;
apologize for his different ways;
and sacrifice any remnant of pride
in his own individuality.
Some of the more sympathetic
fraternities help the situation a
little by increasing the required
number to blackball or doing away
with it altogether. But any fra fraternity

Os The Gator Staff
A combination of speed, height, and hustle gave head coach Norm
Sloans Gator basketball team an impressive 78-55 victory over out outmanned
manned outmanned Florida State, befor 7,000 enthusiastic fans in Florida Bym.
Tom Baxley led all scorers with 22 points, but was only one of three
Florida players who was in double figures. Brooks Henderson and
Mont Highly stuffed the baskets with 14 points each.
Richard Peek and Highly, the two big men in Floridas front line
along with Henderson, completely controlled both backboards as the
smaller Seminoles struggled in vain to grab rebounds.
Florida jumped to a quick 9-0 lead earlier in the first half and was
never headed. Closest the Seminoles could come in the first half
was four points with about 16 minutes left to play. At one time Florida
held a 24 point lead. They went into the dressing room 22 points ahead.
Dick Tomlinson started things off for the Gators with a 20-foot jump
shot in the first few seconds of play. Tomlinson got the next two points
also on a tip-in.
Floridas sharp-shooting guard Tom Baxley kept the pressure on
the FSU defense all night with his 20 and 30 foot jump shots and his
driving layups. Baxley scored 12 of the first hall Gator tallies.
The other half of Floridas guard duo, Henderson, was hampered
by foul trouble. Three quick ones were called on Henderson and he
had to sit out the last part of the first half. However, he came right
back in the second half and scored the first 4 points for the Gators.
In the second half, the Gators continued to apply the pressure.
The Seminoles never came within 20 points of the Gators all during
the second stanza.
At one point Florida lead by as many as 31. With less than four min minutes
utes minutes left to play, Sloan started filling in with his bench. This is when
the Seminoles scored most of their points.
We have a one-game winning streak going and it feels real nice,
said an elated Norm Sloan after the game.
The Baby Gators also started their season on a high note as they
downed the FSU freshman team 68-62. Florida jumped off to a 16-3
lead early in the first half and the Seminoles never caught up. High
scorers for Florida were Harry Winkler and Wally Murray each with
