Charging an admission price

entertainers to the UF for
two shows instead of one with the
increase in funds, Hale said.

Color Revisited
The characterization of the colorless young people in this column
and in the cartoon in the Nov. 4, issue were, for the most part, intended
to be funny. It is, however, typical of a great number of individuals
both young and old.
It is, perhaps, an error to refer to those to whom the article applies
as individuals, for this they are not. This is exactly the point of
the comment. The author of See The College Boy, See The College
Girl indicated that conformity in dress meant conformity in attitude
and intellectual individualism. This, although not true in a great
number of cases, is not completely without foundation.
Anyone who comes into contact with a large number of teen-agers
and college students knows that colorlessness is not the dominant
characteristic. Adults who contend that the Beat Generation, or
whatever they are calling it now, is lifeless and lacks such things as
sticktoltiveness and the sense of responsibility they claim they
had as youths would do well to examine the facts more closely.
Never have so many special interest groups existed for young
people. They are active in national politics, a subject that still con confuses
fuses confuses our parents, they devote millions of hours a year in the various
charity drives, according to the United Fund; they are often found to
be leaders in the fields of art, music and literature.
Moreover, they go to college. The acquisition of todays college
education, especially now with the trimester system, is a greater
burden than most parents understand or care to admit.
Colorless young people are in the minority but they exist everywhere.
These are the people to whom the article was directed. Often an
effective way to cirticize something is to laugh at it. Satire can do
what objective critical analysis cannot.

Is It Cape

Farris Bryant of Florida raised
the question today of whether Pre President
sident President Lyndon B. Johnson renamed
the geographical area around the
nations missile test center for
thelate President Kennedy.
Bryant said he made inquiries
in Washington following a flurry
of opposition from the Cape Can Canaveral
averal Canaveral area to re-naming anything
but the actual federal installation
at the Cape for the slain President.
Following a news conference at
which he threw his full support
behind re-naming both the instal instalaltion
altion instalaltion and the geographical area
for Kennedy, Bryant called Con Congressman
gressman Congressman Ed Gurney, Orlando
Republican who represents Central ,
Florida. I
He said Gurney read him
the Presidents executive order
which specifically designates the
facilities of the launch operation
center of NASA and the facility of
station mumber one of the Atlantic
Missile Range as the John F. Ken Kennedy
nedy Kennedy Space Center.
It makes no mention of the geo geographical
graphical geographical area which has been cal called
led called Cape Canaveral since the In Indians
dians Indians first named it.
Bryant said it apparently would
take action by the Department of
Interior, a Cabinet post under the
President, to rename the geogra geographical
phical geographical area. He said he does not
know whether this has been done
or not.
But as far as I know, he said,
what the President has done a amounts
mounts amounts to naming the facility Thp
John F. Kennedy Space Center at
Cape Canaveral.
Newspaper stories of the Pre Presidents
sidents Presidents action said he renamed
both the installation and the geo geographical
graphical geographical area and most of the pro protests
tests protests have been lodged against
changing Cape Canaveral as a geo geographical
graphical geographical location. There has been
little opposition to re-naming the
space center itself for Kennedy.
Bryant said President Johnson
called him before taking the action

and got his approval. He said at
I the time, the conversation was gen general

far the redesignation would go.
But Bryant said when he saw
, news accounts that the geogra geographical
phical geographical location was included, it
wa all right with him and he is
standing four-square behind what whatever

Bryant said he has received mail

Players 'Charleys Aunt
Two Side-Splitting Hours

Its hard to believe that in our

raucous joke. But in August Staubs

Thomass enduring Gay Nineties

cence innocence is reborn, and the joy of life
is eloquently captured in two hours
of sidesplitting laughter.
Staub has the masters touch,
as he has made several additions
in order to tighten and enhance
the symmetry of the play.
His most notable innovation is
a series of oleos between the acts.
By themselves, they appear as tit title
le title morsels of nostalgia, full of that
simple charm and humor of an era
that seems so remote now. But in
the context of the play, they serve
an important dramatic function.
Because of the incredible number
of humorous situations in the play,
the oleos aid in conditioning the
audiences response to the follow following
ing following act by maintaining the plays
light-hearted atmosphere.
During the play itself, Staub u utilizes
tilizes utilizes a chorus and orchestra
(consisting of one banjo and one
harmonica) to heighten the plot,
particularly those scenes involving
each of the four couples. In fact,
throughout the play, everyone at
one time or another sings the key
song that the play is made to re revolve

announcement in Act 111 are among
the scenes where stage directions
make the difference between a
smile and a roar. With Staub, it
is always a case of the latter.
The cast is of an unusually high
order of excellence.
Even with their consistency, I
think Taylor Brooks as Lord Fan Fancourt
court Fancourt Babberly, the imposteraunt,
gives the finest performance of the
evening. He has a real comic flair.
Just looking at his facial expres expressions
sions expressions are grounds for laughter. The
role of Fancourt can easily become
pretentious in the hands of a con conceited
ceited conceited actor, but Brooks always
has his character under control.
An almost equally superb per performance
formance performance is turned in by Randy
Robbins as Jack Chesney, Char Charley's

scheme to keep the girls chap chaperoned.

sistent consistent as Brooks, Robbins, never nevertheless,

like the letter writing scene of
Act I and the proposal to Kitty
in Act 11. In the former sequence,
he is a real master of the sit situation;
uation; situation; in the latter, the situation
is humorously the master of him.
A real surprise is Jerry Rhodes'
Brasset, Jacks servant. As the
elderly man who understands
college men, Brassett nearly dom dominates
inates dominates a large segment of Act I
thanks mainly to the comic gait
and shrill laughter Rhodes imparts
to his character.
Ed Pope as Charley starts very
slowly, but as Act I moves along,
he becomes more secure in his role
as the fretful Charley. He finishes
out the play on a strong note.
Vic Cook as Sir Francis Ches Chesney
ney Chesney is a real dapper of a gentle gentleman.

of the finest gestures of the

Phil Giberson as Mr. Spettigue
is a bit inanimate at times. O f
course, his role is not that easy,
in that Spettigue is first seen as
a rather indignant, righteous man,
but then is shown for what he really
isa conceited lady's man(with the
emphasis on madames money).
Giberson doesnt always suggest
Spettigues airs, though he is quite
good at showing Spettigues buf buffoonery,
foonery, buffoonery, particularly during parts
of the second act and nearly all
of the third.
The best of the women was Bar Barbara
bara Barbara Paridon as Amy Spettigue.
Amy is that sort of flirtatious,idi flirtatious,idito
to flirtatious,idito child who somehow manages to
get her man. Paridon has just the
right amount of emphasis in her
sighs, pants, squeals, and other
girlish gurglings.
Eleanor Broome as Amy's more
refined companion, Kitty Verdun,
is quite the coy woman in her
proposal scene with Jack.
MimjfCarr, as the real aunt who
is quite a good sport about the
impersonation, combines dignity
with a sense of humor to create
a fine Donna Lucia, one of the more
difficult roles.
Finally, Carol Boyd as Ela,
Donna Lucias companion, does a
good job as the starry-eyed girl
who longs for the nice man she
met at Monte Carlo.
And of course, there were the

With season-opening wins under their collective belts, both teams

Miami, meanwhile, outscored Tampa f whom the Gators will meet

This seasons Hurricanes are young with six sophomores, four jun juniors,

Last years outfit placed second, and several other Hurricane editions
have figured in the top 10.
Theyve got two of the finest offensive players in the Southeast
in Rick Barry and John Dampier, Sloan continued. Barry is real
tough under the boards and Dampier is a great outside shot, he said.
Barry, a stylish 6 foot-7 forward who earned All American mention
as a sophomore last year, scored 34 points in the Tampa affair, mostly
on layups.
Junior college transfer Dampier accounted for 33 points in the same
game from his guard post. Dampier, at 6 foot-3, teams up with senior
Bernie Butts as Miamis most effective backcourt men.
Probably getting a starting nod up front with Barry will be 6 foot foot-5

Despite McCoys departure, the Hurricanes remain tall and wide at

Sports Editor
No UF, A and M
Game In Future
Wednesday the New Orange Peel ran an article about an interview
with Florida head football coach Ray Graves. In it was a question
regarding the possibility of apre-or post-season game between Florida
and Florida A and M.
NEW PEEL -- Concerning Florida A and M would it ever be
possible in the future to play a pre- or post-season game against the
GRAVES This would be for the state university officials (the
Board of Control) to decide, just as they decided when Florida should
play Florida State.
Actually this is an academic question. Florida A and M and Florida
will not meet in a football game for a long time to come.
First reason is the conservative nature of the controlling forces
in the Florida Legislature. The majority of the state senate is composed
of members whose constituencies are still OldSouthin temperament.
The thought of Negroes playing whites on Florida Field would not
bring pleasure to the pressure groups back home.
Second is the sheer fact that a game between Florida and Florida
A and M would not be a game between Florida universities, but a
match between races. It would wind up not as integration of sports,
but as segregated competition.
We are not against playing for fear of what Florida A and M could
do to the Gators on a given Saturday Afternoon. There would probably
be some days when FAMU could stomp Florida and other days when
the UF could whip FAMU.
No logical -objection can be made for Florida playing an integrated,
predominently white team or in fact being integrated itself, but the
playing of white against Negro serves no purpose, but to aggravate
race relations.
Thirdly the schedules of both schools are booked up almost until
1970 and the chance of scheduling a common date between FAMU and
Florida is next to nill.
Wed have to vote NO on the ballot now for the game. We do encourage
everyone to fill out the ballot and send it in to the Orange Peel so we
can see what the students think.
The accompanying ballot asked for student opinion regarding games
played in Jacksonville. We would be interested in student sentiment
on the subject.
