UF students continued to shiver last night as a cold wave which
has enveloped the entire state of Florida sent Gainesville temps >
atures spiraling down.
Relief, however, may be insight, according to the weatherman.
Today's temperatures are expected to reach into the high 50's.
Last night's low ranged from 25 to 35 degrees over the Gainsville.
Although temperatures are expected to gradually warm up starting
today, it will be several days before the thermometer shows a sea seasonal
sonal seasonal reading. Yesterday's high was 56 degrees, recorded at 3 p.m.
This was 11 degrees over the predicted high. The low was a chilly
24 degrees, measured at 4 a.m.
Frost warnings were still posted as far south as the everglades
last night. Some damage to Florida's citrus crop was reported
after Sunday night's frost, but the extent is not yet known.

I dont see any reason, from
the content of the last issue of
the Orange Peel, for it to be

Dean of Student Affairs Lester
Hale expressed the opinion that
no one thing had caused the board
to take the NOP under advisement.
It was caused, he said, by NOPs

much the same as the one caused
by the Orange Peel of the late
50s which was banned.
AT THE TIME the Orange
Peel was banned by the board,
Hale said, it was clearly evident
to me that some drastic action
was inevitable if a magazine was
to continue as an official student

In Warrens cave early Monday morning.
They were found by the Florida Speleological Society and the Al Alachua

I was not worried about getting out of the cave. I have a lot
of confidence in the FSS, Jane said.
I slept most of the time as well as you can sleep on rocks.
I was asleep when they found us. I heard them calling and saw the
lights. George didnt wake up until after they arrived.
The pair began exploring the cave with Hohn Evans, also an
FSU student, at 11 a.m. Sunday. Evans came out of the cave at 3 p.m.
and after waiting for his friends a short time, called the Alachua
County Sheriffs Department.
WE FOLLOWED the cable and somehow missed the fork. When
we realized that we had made a wrong turn, we began crawling
back and forth across the cave looking for the way out. It took us
about an hour and a half to.cross the cave.
We became exhausted and decided to wait until the FSS found
us. We talked a while, but I dont remember too much about it. I
know we got a little philosophical here and there. George and I
have been friends for eight years.

Oversized enrollment restricts PCL class sizes

We've just managed to keep our noses out of the water when it

of the UF Department of Political Science.
Many of our classess are so oversized it isn't even funny. We
simply have too many people trying to get courses in government
for the sections offered."
Sixteen months ago the department cracked down on enrollment
due to understaffing of teachers. With increased enrollment pressures
every trimester, enrollment restrictions, Bartley said, will still
face students unless something is done to relieve the class sizes of
certain courses.
TO CURTAIL enrollment the department restricts entering freshmen
from registering in political science courses and other students
with below C" averages are denied admission until class size can
be determined. According to class size, some of these students
with the instructors' permission are allowed to sign up for the
The prospects for immediate relief are dim," Bartley commented.
Gov. Burns has pledged aid to combat overloads in higher education,
but the 1965 Legislature will be the provider for these critically
needed funds."
Already the Board of Regent's budget for state universities is
being made up and if approved, it will provide for the UF university universitywide

THE CAMPUS political scene following Bob Parks
United Party landslide in the spring of 1960 showed
one huge majority partyUnitedand the rubble
left from the great experiment in futilitythat was
the AUied Party.
IF ONE maxim could be drawn from the 1960
campaign, it was that in any election in which the
parties were drawn along fraternity-independent
lines, the independent party was certain to win,
despite the Greeks being up 4,000 or so block votes.

JUST AS former New York
Governor and two-time
unsuccessful GOP presidential
nominee Thomas Dewey scoffed
off the realignment of the American
political parties along liberal liberalconservative
conservative liberalconservative lines since the result
would be that the Republicans
would lose every election and the
Democrats would win every
election, so too must campus
political pragmatists scoff off any
idea of a winning All-Greek party.
It just wouldn't win.

BUT THE wheels of progress were soon put into
motion. Among the members of the internal sturcture
of United Party, a splinter faction led by Bill
Holt, Jack Varney and others pulled out of the mother
party and organized a new party strong enough to
wrest the toga of leadership from United in the close
1961 election.
THE SPLIT in the independent wing of Union Party,
engineered by Holt, Varney and Company, resulted
in the birth of the Student Party, direct predecessor
of the Gator Party and staffed with considerable
following from the old, defeated Allied Party. The
United Party independent wing was under the leader leadership
ship leadership of Mac Melvin and A1 McPeak.
SUCH FRATERNITY houses as Phi Gamma Delta,
Phi Tau, Kappa Alpha, Sigma Nu, Sigma Alpha
Epsilon, Tau Epsilon Phi, Alpha EPi, Beta Theta
Pi, Theta Chi, and Pi Kappa Phi joined the new party.
THE UNITED Party lineup then showed as Greek
members the Phi Delts, Lambda Chis, ATOs, Kappa
Sigs, Pi Lambs, SPEs, Pikes, Delts, AGRs andSigrrfa
THE TWO campus parties in the fall and winter
of 1960 then became approximately evenly-divided
along with fraternity and independent lines, with
United-Party enjoying a 300-block vote edge up
until the day before the election.
UNITED PARTYS candidates included Phi Delta
Thetas Charley Wells, later named Florida Blue
Key president, and vice presidential nominee Paul
Hendrick, an independent, who later won SG
presidential honors.
MANNING THE two top positions on the Student
Party ticket were Bruce Bullock, a resident assistant
and former chairman of the celebrated Victory Bell
Project, and Jack McHaffey, an engineer. Treasury
candidate R. E. Shephard ran coendorsed, a rarity
in UF politics, and Student Party ran a Phi Gamma
Delta by the name of Bill Trickel for Chancellor
of the Honor Court. Trickel was later to head his
partys ticket and gain the right to reside for a year
on the Third Floor. v
AS ELECTION day neared, it looked like a narrow
victory tor Wells and the old United crew, but a
sudden unexpected move occurred on the eve of the
election which may well have changed the race.
TWO IMPORTANT members of United Party,

attempted to devise a picture for printing in the
Alligator of supposed goon squad members of the
opposing party, engaged in the act of gooning United
Party posters. One of the United stalwarts posing
in the rigged picture as a member of Student
Party with his babk to the camera turned slightly
as the camera clicked. The resulting picture in the
Alligator showed this United memberrecognizeabic
to the readers--gooning his own partys poop. Party
cohesion, needless to say, was not aided by this
A SHEET was then thrown concerning a
fraternitys conscience. Ultimately this resulted
in the ATOs jumping to Student Party, taking along
150-175 block votes. This 300-350 block vote switch
enabled Bullock and Student Party to gain
considerable strength and possibly win the election.
UNITED PARTY went down to defeat in a close
election by 117 votes, as Student Party wrecked
Uniteds hopes to repeat Bob Parks triumph. But
the loss did not spell disaster for United Party.
WELLS AND Company also suffered considerably
for the student technique of referring to Wells as
Prince Charley at the Phi Delt House. Whatever
the true situation, the tag hurt Wells campus

Freedom by one Sharon Wright, ,4AS.
I have just one small question to ask you. Where
was your anger and annoyance a few years ago when
southern cities and states expressly forbid the
individual rights of storekeepers and salesmen to
serve and hire Negroes. And where is your anger
NOW when this state expressly limits one of our
most sacred individual rights, the right to choose a
mate, with anti-messegination laws.
Herein lies the unknowing hypocrisy of Miss Wright
and her ilk.
Unfortunately, I agree with her opinion that our
rights have been infringed on. The commerce clause
has been vastly distorted. But I am willing to overlook
my principles in favor of what I consider morally

Students pour in
from jr. colleges

Floridas junior colleges are pouring students into UF at an
ever increasing rate. Junior college admissions to UF have more
than doubled in the last five years.
In the fall semester of 1959 there were 389 junior college ad admissions
missions admissions to UF; in the fall trimester of 1964, there were more
than 770 Junior college admissions. The bulk of these transfers
came from about 19 of Floridas 26 junior colleges.
Junior colleges have become an integral part of the state uni university
versity university and college system. They have aleviated from the four fouryear
year fouryear institution much of the load c eated by Floridas increased
for example, miami-Dade Junior College began operations
in 1960, with less than 2,000 students at Miamis Central High
School. Later, moving to the deserted Opa Locka Airfield, it now
has an enrollment of over 10,00.
In the past junior colleges have been looked down upon as hav havens
ens havens for students who couldnt get into four-year schools and as back backtops
tops backtops for those students classed as college dropouts.
But according to William J. Langer, assistant director of admis admissions,
sions, admissions, directing undergraduate transfers to UF, the image and role
of the junior college has changed. Langer cited four major functions
of the junior college that thave brought this change about.
First the junior college provides students who are eligible to
attend Floridas four-year colleges the opportunity to receive ac accredited
credited accredited educations at less expense. The students live at home and
are able to continue working at what are probably better paying jobs.
The students not eligible to attend four-year schools because*
poor grades or low test are given the chance to prove
themselves. By maintaining a minimum 2.0 overall average, these
students can then transfer to a regular four-year college.
Another function of junior colleges is providing technical and
terminal educations for those students who wish only two years cf
college. These students can go on to four-year schools, but the tran transfer
sfer transfer of the technical credits is sometimes very difficult.

Recent recruiting practices uy some of tne professional foot football
ball football clubs have been somewhat questionable to say the least.
For instance, just after the San Francisco 49ers announced
the signing of University of Georgia tackle Jim Wilson, the Bos Boston
ton Boston Patriots claimed that the 49er contract was not valid because
Wilson had already signed a contract with them. Obviously some something
thing something was amiss.
As it happened, Boston had offered Wilson a bonus ( which
he accepted) to sign a contract that was to remain undated until
his college eligibility at Georgia had ended.
The inevitable mess followed, the details of which will not
be recounted here. However, there were several important issues
involved in the double signing.
Certainly Wilson was not wise to sign a contract before he
had played his last college game, but from this corner the most
important issue seems to lie in the fact that professional re rerecruiters,
recruiters, rerecruiters, or at least some of them, are losing sight of ethics
in their competition for top athletes. Is it right for a professional
club to attempt to persuade, and often pressure, a college ath athlete
lete athlete to make professional commitments that are entirely pre premature?
mature? premature?
Should a college student with obligations to his school and his
team be exposed to the Inviting distractions of contractsand
bonuses before he has met his prior obligations?
These are practices that have not been uncommon, and they
could easily result in a soiling 6f college athletics.
There is no real action the NCAA can take because it no
power or authority over the professional leagues. Nevertheless
it is possible that the NCAAs member schools could ban profes professional
sional professional scouts from their campuses. Some schools do this al already
ready already for various reasons ranging from school policy to con conflicts
flicts conflicts between coaches at the school and an indlvidaul profession professional
al professional club. It is hoped that this action will not be necessary.
At a meeting of the National Football League in Chicago last
week, Commissioner Pete Rozelle ruled that National League
clubs could not sign any player until after he had completed
his senior year of eligibility, Including bowl games in which
his team might be playing. f
It is rumored that the American Football League will follow
suit at their meeting in Houston this week.
This would surely be an advantage to all concerned, for a bat battle

nothing but the ruin of the sport.
