Campus Christmas

Judging from the letters appearing on this
Pi? ge Au it would appear that the attempts of
the Christmas on Campus Committee to make
the ceremony more appealing to more students
produced exactly the opposite effect on some
University personnel.
Much of the controversy, we fear, has
arisen from the unfortunate misquotation of
Chairman Joe Coudon in our Dec, 11 edition.
He was quoted as saying that the invocation and
benediction were omitted from the ceremony
in an effort to make it less religious oriented
and to give it more student appeal, In fact,
the committees intention was to remove
the denominational aspects of the ceremony
that more students might enjoy the occasion.
It is impossible to alter the essentially
religious nature of any Christmas observance,
and the committee retained the reading of
Biblical passages and traditional carols for
this reason. However, removing the sectarian
trappings from any ceremony does not
necessarily remove its religious content and
meaning. Those who wish a full religious
service may attend one at the Church or
Student Center of their choice. Christmas
on C ampus, however, should be nom nomdenominational
denominational nomdenominational that it may be meaningful to
as many students as possible.
We commend Chairman Coudon and his
committee for their efforts to bring a
meaningful experience within the reach of as
many students as possible.

Snapping Gators?

Dear Sir:
How come the University of
Florida football team is called
the Fighting Gators? I can
readily associate a snap with an
alligator but I cannot visualize, a
fight. Ive never seen or heard
of alligators fighting. The ones
Ive seen in captivity and on films
leads me to believe that as a
group, theyre rather peaceful
creatures, the only time I saw
one put up a fight was when a
handler singled one out to wrestle
with. Whats that got to do with
the Florida Gator football team?
Well, the word fighting as
you already know, really belongs
to the Fighting Irish of Notre
Dame. Its their nickname and I

mansion to be a sincere friend of the student. The
trimester system made its debut in this state
during Bryants administration. Repeated efforts
and pleas to the governor by both students and
professional educators in behalf of a more acceptable
system seemed to fall on deaf ears.
The Question now is whether Governor Burns
will be able to do more for higher education than
Governor Bryant was able to do. Although Bryant
did support the widely disliked trimester, he did
many things for the states university system which
were beneficial. New junior colleges, plans for
new state universities, a new two-year school at
Boca Raton, plans for a dental college here at the
University of Florida, and enlargement of many
existing facilities are among Bryants achievements.
However, Bryants greatest achievement in the
field of higher education is about to be ruined.
During the Bryant administration, a needed plan
for a board of regents to oversee the states
university system was proposed. After long and
often bitter debate, the plan was put into practice,
and finally the universities are governed by the
Board of Regents instead of the old Board of Control.
THE MAIN advantage to the new Board of Regents
has been overlooked now that it has been born.
For many years complaints were heard that the
university system of this state could not advance
rapidly enough because the old Board of Control
was basically a political group and thus was too
vulnerable to the many political pressures of
Tallahassee. The Board of Regents was
specifically designed to remove the control of the
universities from such political maneuvering.
Among other things, its membership was to be
composed of men with nine-year staggered terms,
so that no one governor could control it; and an
appointment to the Board of Regents would not be
considered a political plum. Such a move would
also insure that only men with experience in the
educational field would be appointed, rather than just
politicians who had worked for the election of a
particular candidate and were now in line for
In the middle of December, even before Burns
had taken office, he and Bryant got into a verbal
battle ovfer who would control the new board.
The entire purpose of the method used for com composition
position composition of the new board was to remove it from
the area of control by so political a figure as the
THUS THE two politicians, Burns and Bryant,
have again overlooked the best interests of the
university system, and are trying to see who can
control the Board of Regents. The Board was
created so that educators, not politicians could
control education, but Governors Burns and Bryant,
who both favored the new Board so that the university
system could be more efficiently run, are unable
to remember their words of only a few months ago.
Thus from all appearances, the new Board of
Regents will be no different than the old Board of
Control. The new board is falling into the same
trap that ruined the old one. The Miami Herald
praised Bryant for appointing experienced men to
the new Board of Regents. Seven of Bryants nine
new appointments were holdovers from the old Board
of Control. Thus Bryant and Burns are engaged


Reason and regents

in a battle to see who can ruin the new Board of
Regents by making it a political machine.
If the new board fails, if education here is again
unable to progress, if a more acceptable system
than the trimester is not found, only two men will
be to blame: Burns and Bryant. They set the trap
that can ruin the new Board of Regents; and now
they are springing that trap.

This year, the program following the tree
lighting ceremony last Sunday omitted both an
invocation and a benediction, for reasons which are
both obvious and ridiculous. Can there be a wedding
without a bride or a bridegroom?! Can there be
a meaningful Christmas program without mention of
the Person who is responsible for the season of
Christmas? Oh, I know that there was a reading
of the Biblical Christmas story, because it has
become a part of our tradition/* but it was treated
like a passage from Shakespeare or Dante. I
respectfully suggest that in the future this program
be omitted from the calendar of yuletide activities.
After all, Christmas is for people who believe in
the Christmas story as factexcept possibly
for some unessential details rather than as a
traditional story of fiction.

I was amazed and dumbfounded by the Alligator
story Friday which stated that This years
(Christmas) program will not have a benediction
or invocation. . .in an effort to make it less
religious oriented and to give it more student
appeal. (italics mine).
To remove the religious orientation from
Christmas makes sheer mockery of one of
mankinds greatest observances.
I have enough faith in UF students to believe
that it is not necessary to give a Christmas
program less religious orientation to make it
more appealing. n
E. T. York, Jr..
Provost for Agriculture

To the Editor:
The student body may be interested to knowand
the Alligator should feel itself obliged to investigate-
the fact that student registration appointments at the
UF are made according to grade point averages.
A very dubious policy asks students with the lowest
grades to burden themselves with the maximum of
schedule problems, "and those with the highest grades
are not handicapped at all.
Some non-academic argument could be made, I
suppose, that the very best students should be
by a pre-registration procedure. In fact, this is
done, and a bit too liberally perhaps, since only a
2.7 cumulative is needed to qualify for pre-regis pre-registration
tration pre-registration privileges.
BUT I can see no argument whatever for making
registration appointment distinctions among those
students who remain below a 2.7 average.
Indeed, I would like to questioned the whole

J Jf

concept of registration privileges based on past
grade performances.
If there really are demonstrable advantages to
registering earlyi.e., what are the facts of the
caseit seems to me these alleged advantages
should be apportioned to those students with the lowest
grade averages. A similar procedure is used in
professional athletics (as many of the boys no doubt
know already)teams ranking last at the end of a
season are given first choice at the newly drafted
athletes. Fair play dictates a comparable pro procedure
cedure procedure in horse racing.
NO, THE analogies are not especially amusing,
but there are few people hereabouts who could
deny the horse race quality of this institution
in so far as grades are concerned. Democratic
practice has long insisted upon equal opportunities
at the public goods of life such as education, jobs,
justice, and, one must assume, grades.
We would have to presuppose that there are no
built-in injustices at our university to justify the
prevailing registration system. Yet many grade
averages are what they are because the system
(perhaps unavoidably) permits some to prosper
while others suffer, regardless of individual
potentialities for college. Since this is the case

Privileged registration unfair

(or at any rate, this is what many feel to be the
case), then the system itself is obligated to
minimize the injustices by equalization procedures.
One such equalization procedure might be to do
just the opposite of what is being done now: in short,
to make the A students register last, and give
the students on probation and with the very lowest
averages the privilege of pre-registration. Pre Presumably,
sumably, Presumably, the most gifted students would be the
least burdened by a poor schedule and the least
gifted (or, depending upon your point of view, the
least lucky, manipulative, bookish) students could
be permitted an authentically equal opportunity to
competeand to compete for what we must remember
is an ARTIFICIALLY contrived shortage of good
grades, a scarcity that is allocated by criteria
which are by no means unambiguous.
IN C-5, for example--and I mention C-5 because
I am more familiar with that department than with
any otherone obvious consequence of current
registration practices was to jam the unattractive
section hours with an excessively high proportion
of low grade average students. Seniority privileges
amongst the staff tended to allocate these unattractive
hours to the least experienced teachers (though, for
all I know, they may have been the best teachers);
in any event, the department only recently learned
how registration appointments were scheduled,
though the practice is evidently one of long-standing.
Practically speaking, teachers with high rank and
seniority have tended to end up with a dispropor disproportionate
tionate disproportionate number of successful students, and the
lowest ranked teachers were more likely to have
classes loaded with a disproportion of losers.
The misfortune here is not so much that junior
staff members are burdened with losers, but
that students with poor academic records are given
a minimum of exposure to those of their peers who
are presumably the better classroom performers.
If students learn from one another as much as they
learn from teachers (and the sociologists seem to
me to suggest as much), then in many University
College sectionsin too manya peer-oriented
performance simply retards those already in need
of seeing the best students in action.
MERELY TO reverse prevailing procedure might
once again segregate high and low performance
students. Perhaps I should re-stress the point that
since we do not know the advantages of early
registration, we are in no position to say whether
reversing the grade average criterion would prove
to be a help or a hindrance.
But should registration privileges prove to be a
decisive advantage, justice seems to me to require
distribution of that advantage to that sector of our
student community which needs it most. That there
must be SOME advantage to the current procedure
we must assume from the fact that the administration
seeks to reward their idea of the better students
by so privileging them.
In any case, if permitting the least to come first
is really abhorrent to the Florida style, registration
ought to be done on a strictly random basis.
The machine can surely do that much for us,
it is so wizard-like in randomizing everything else
around here. 1 sincerely,
Edward Richer

Fraternities charged
The Honorable Tom C, Clark, associate justice
of the U. S. Supreme Court, presented the following
suggestions before leading representatives of the
national college fraternity system in a banquet
address which he made recently in New York City.
Justice Clark is currently national vice president
of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity.
...Just as sure as education is the guardian of democracy, f.
brotherliness is its keeper. Fraternities can do much to bring
this truth home to the American people.
IN DOING so we must tap our greates resource, the college
graduates who wear the fraternity badge. This is where we gave
failed miserable. We have projected an image of fraternities as
being solely an undergraduate activity. It is not. Once a fraternity
man, always a fraternity man. Like the iceberg, we have hidden our
most potent force from view. I suggest tha we redesign our image
bringing into the prof lie our greatest assetthe graduate fraternity
men in America. Lets put them to work.
PICTURE, if you will, the potential of such a group, dedicated
aw they are to our cause and working through our active chapters
and thousands of alumni l ones. Imagine, if you will, the influence
that these leaders might also wield in every pul pulthat
that pulthat these leaders might also wield in every public community
in America. We could not only organize more fraternities to
meet the bulging student population but we could increase the
number of our own chapers. In this way we could make fraternity
life and ideals available to every student wishing the experience.
Hard to do? Yes, all good things are hard to attain. But I am sure
that with a strong dedicated program it could be done in a few
years. This problem, my brother, is bihher than my fraternity fraternityit
it fraternityit is bigger than yours yoursit
it yoursit is bigger than yours its success will take the cooperation
of all fraternities united in one grand cause.
IS THE fraternity system worth it? I say emphatically that
it is.

Football players and all athletics at Florida must satisfy
the same requirements as any other student in terms of both
admissions requirements and minimum academic standards.
This is a prime reason why the University of Florida often
does not offer a scholarship to a star athlete who may be highly
sought after by many other colleges. With regard to this, head
football coach Ray Graves says, We have stressed in our
recruiting program the need for combining athletic and aca academic
