A GREAT student government demands leaders who put service
above politics.
AFTER OBSERVING six elections on this campus, not from a
politician's viewpoint but from a student's viewpoint, I am
convinced that students manage to find their way through the
chaos of glittering generalities and glib personalities which the
politicians call the campaign."
THEIR FINAL decision in the voting machine is based on
three factors:
(1) the caliber of individual seeking office
(2) the ideas and concepts he will bring to the post
(3) how well his ideas will fit into the role and function of
the office
WHEN I decided to run for president, I sought the best possible
people as fellow candidates for the top student government posts.
I knew students who had experience in dorm life, who had
represented student interests, who had varied backgrounds of
service, and whose leadership ability was based on creative
ideas and innovations.
THESE PEOPLE are heading the Progress ticket:
DICK THOMPSON for vice president -- Dick has represented
his dorm area both on the Murphree Area Council and for two
terms in the Legislative Council. He's held the two highest
posts in the Council, being both majority floor leader and chair chairman
man chairman of the vital Rules and Calendar Committee. Also, his
varied background includes top leadership positions on the
Florida Union Board, Orientation, Homecoming and the Food
Service Investigating Committee. Dick Thompson has the knowledge
and ability to translate student needs and interests into effective
programs through the Legislative Council.
STEVE CHEESEMAN for treasurer Steve has been elected
twice from his class, and once from the entire student body,
to three different areas of student government work. As chairman
of the Budget and Finance Committee of the Legislative Council,
secretary-treasurer of the Freshman Class, and Clerk of the
Honor Court, Steve has the technical knowledge of student
government operation necessary to the functioning of the
treasurer's office.
SID STUBBS for Honor Court Chancellor The Chancellor
must not only possess legal training, but must also be familiar
with the unique operation of the UF Honor Court. Sid has held
the offices of attorney general and chief defense counsel, chairman
of the Honor Court Speakers' Bureau and is a charter member
of the Honor Court Bar Association. The Honor System is Florida's

\ o>
roost cherished tradition, and the Chancellor must be one who
can both protect student rights and inspire dedication to this
808 SEGAL for Honor Court Clerk -- Bob has a well-rounded
record of leadership and service to the University. Importantly,
he has served as Honor Court speaker and as a justice on the
Honor Court. He was also majority floor leader on the Legislative
Council and a member of the Rules and Calendar Committee.
He was an Honor Court Speaker, and has maintained a 3.6
academic average.
THESE ARE the men who can take the ideas that I have tried to
outline in this campaign and transform them into a concrete
program of service for students. The one common ingredient
that unites the leaders of the Progress ticket is a record of
concern for service over politics, i

All students are urged to attend what i*

OUR PLATFORM, distributed on-campus for the first time
last night, presupposes that informal (or off-campus) education
is related to the traditional and formal classroom-lab type of
study. Our conviction is that doing something WHEN YOU ARE
A STUDENT about real public issues, individually engaging one's
self in the human drama off-campus, makes formal education
"stick," makes the classroom meaningful, and makes the textbook
something more than words to be memorized for exams.
IN ADDITION to our anti-poverty program, the Freedom Party
platform calls attention to a variety of on-campus problems such
(1) VOLUNTARY ROTC Freedom Party leadership, especially
Jim Dacey, vice presidential candidate, last year led the campus,
through the Student Peace Union, into a confrontation with the
administration on the ROTC issue. Before that time it had been
years of party politician promises; Freedom Party leadership
didn't promise, it acted, and its actions in fact led to the current
faculty committee that has recommended that we be emancipated
in 1967 from forced military training. Jim Harmeling, once again
in last Monday's Alligator, said the Freedom Party would pressure
the administration to relieve us of compulsory ROTC before next
FREEDOM Party leadership did it before, it can do it again!
(2) UNIVERSITY Housing for Married Students -- Freedom
Party has already assigned a research team to plan "urban renewal"
of the Flavet neighborhoods. Other parties appear to think the
solution there rests in swimming pools and TV cables and waiting
around for non-students to get the job done we think nothing less
than slum clearance initiated by those closest to the situation will
do the job.
STUDENT government, with its guaranteed annual income, has
credit enough, and students and faculty have brains enough to
SWIFTLY AND BEAUTIFULLY renew the. whole Flavet area. We
know of no good reason why student government, in cooperation
with interested faculty members, cannot go into the public housing
business. And* if you think some "they" out there will stop us
then check first with Freedom Party regulars about what can te
done with those "they" that seem to haunt so many students out
of their dignity and their will to live.
IN ADDITION, Freedom Party will agitate for the principle
of "financial need" as a controlling criterion for access to
university housing for married students.
(3) FACULTY-STUDENT Committees The decisions of
faculty-student committees, such as the Board of Student
Publications and the disciplinary committees of the school, should
not be subject to veto or overriding decision by the University
administration. If this policy would require an amendment to the
University's constitution, Freedom Party candidates are prepared
to mobilize faculty sentiment to achieve results.
ALL POLICIES of the school should be set by faculty and
students, working together in committees or through joint projects
and at all times working together in an atmosphere of freedom!
The reality of our situation, however, is quite different. Adminis Administrative
trative Administrative interference in academic affairs on-campus, or in the
exercise, on or off the campus, of rights and privileges belong ing
to free men and women, is constant, often arbitrary, and done
in a mood of political expedience or personal prejudice.
FREEDOM PARTY is dedicated to the proposition that students
must not only earn their freedom by committing themselves to
worthwhile community projects, but they must also, on campus,
fight for liberation from "panic-made" red tape, or controls for
the sake of controls. The school's bureaucratic, top-down manage management
ment management of campus life assigns all power, ultimately, to men who do
not even live in our community, and who do not even share our
interests, our ambitions, and who are hostile to our natural need
to alter the world's conditions so that we may live here in a free
community of scholars doing in the world the tasks uniquely ours
to do.

ACTION Party has been accused of speaking in generalities
and not putting forth specific improvements for the present Student
IN THIS column we will put an end to these shallow accusations
by setting forth the proposed ACTION program for improvements
in one-third of student government the judiciary and the Honor
ACTIONS candidate for Chancellor. Jack Nichols, is no stranger
to the judiciary processes. He is a senior law student and received
the highest grade in Evidence, a course recommended by the
Honor Court Bar Association as a prerequisite for Chancellor.
His opposition has not yet taken this vital and necessary course.
He also received the U. S. Army Award of Merit while serving as
a military justice at Ft. Knox, Kentucky. With this background
and his experience as an Honor Court Speaker, Nichols is in a
position to present an active program of real improvements to
our present Honor System.
HERE ARE some of his specific proposals:
ESTABLISH an Honor Court Week each trimester to create
a spirit of thoughtfulness among students for the tradition, purpose,
goals, and achievements of the Honor System. Highlights of the
week would be feature articles in a campus publication, showing
of Honor Court films around campus, guest speakers from other
campuses where an effective Honor System is used. In addition
mock trials would be held to familiarize students with Honor
Court procedures.
TO CONTINUE good public relations after Honor Court Week
is over, Nichols plans to use the Honor Court bulletin boards in a
positive manner rather than their present negative use. Penalties
would still be posted but not left unchanged until the edges yellow.
Instead of using the boards to scare students they would be used
to inform them of actions, changes and improvements in the system.
IN ADDITION, the boards in each college would display the name
and address of the Justice from that college. This would provide
a closer link between the student body and the court. The present
lack of easy contact between student and court has much to do with
the equally present apathetic student attitude toward the court.
A STUDENT is hesitant to turn in a fellow student for violation
of the honor code when he thinks of the seriousness and future
fftirm a conviction, even on the internal record of a graduate,
could have. Nichols favors a constitutional amendment that would
give the Chancellor discretionary power to grant a suspended
sentence and keep the record only in the Honor Court files during
a probationary period for minor offenses.
TO INSURE competent council for all persons who come before
the court, Nichols plans to review existing, but unnecessary,
impedients which now cause many law students to shy away from
practicing in the Honor Court.
NICHOLS doesnt believe that working in the Honor Court should
be completely restricted to law students. He plans to encourage
the use of qualified and interested undergraduates to assist in
investigations and administration.
ANOTHER CHANGE would be the establishment of a Merit
System in the Honor Court to limit promitions and admission to
the Honor Court Bar Association to the service and qualifications
of the individual and put an end to personal favoritism.
THESE REPRESENT but a few of the Honor Court improvements
sought by ACTION Partys Chancellor, Jack Nichols, in his ACTION
REMEMBER, the keynote of ACTIONS campaign is one word
Compare. Compare these specifics with the sparkling generalities
offered by the other candidate.

Wednesday, Feb 3/ 1965, The Florida Alligator,

IF THE candidates in the top parties (as they like to call
themselves,) werent hypocrites to begin with, and really believed
in a clean campaign, they have somehow changed. Since the
children were out tearing poop and each other to pieces by the
second day of the campaign, it took about 24 hours for an awful
lot of people to lose some pretty basic ideals.
ACTION SAID Monday, Talk is cheap, but action speaks louder
than words. We must agree. The rip of banners and poop IS
rather loud.
A PIECE of poop that snuck under my door, after mentioning
a candidates leadership, said, Only those who lack a record of
student leadership would try to belittle it. Now unless were
back to the Divine Right of Kings type of government I always
thought that the people who put a politician into office could question
him and his work. Elected politicians are supposed to be responsible
to the voter. Or do they think WE are responsible TO THEM?
ONE CANDIDATE said he wanted a student government as it
could be. But it seems that he and his organization are trying
to win with tactics of the past. How can you promise good student
government based on childish campaign methods?
WHAT THIS University needs is more money spent for top
professors and less on poop sheets. More hours on research and
less on tearing banners. More time spent on students ALL YEAR
LONG instead of these three weeks when were suddenly
WHAT WE need is student leaders interested in students, not
student leaders interested in student leaders.
COME FEB. 12, the day after the elections, well be back in
the same old rut, with the same old politicos, doing the same old
UNLESS Unless you, the voter, do something. The 7000
votes not usually cast (by choice) would scare the hell out of the
politicos if they didnt think they had us snowed.
WHAT DO you say we melt some snow?

reflecting the times. I feel that a
work of art is not complete in its

someone who finds that it appeals

The works of impressionists
Renoir and Monet were especially

UFs swimming and track teams
go on the road this weekend and

Georgia Tech in a varsity and

currently 3-3 in dual meet com competition,
petition, competition, hampered by a lack of
depth but sporting a pair of brilliant

We must win the road games;
that, fans is the major point!

Sports Editor
I admit in past years I have
been surprised the way stories
released have been read, but I
think I have set some kind of
modern record.
I have had so much mail, pro
and con, since my story on Monday
I feel like a Hollywood star. I
have even received phone calls
at 12 p.m.
First let me say the New Look
is no longer dull, insipid and
boring. I guess Im officially
controversial. After looking over
Mondays column I see where
people are upset. My arrow missed
its target.
I am not condemning the basket basketball
ball basketball team. If everything goes right
we will come out with the best
record ever at Florida. Coach
Norman Sloan (article last
Thursdays paper) has turned the
Gators into one of the best teams
in the South.
With the caliber of players we
have, Brooks Henderson through
Bob Hoffman, we were conference
title contenders.

But heres my point. To win the
SEC conference title we MUST
win our games on the road that
we are favored in.
In Memorial Coliseum
(Kentuckys gym) a high school
team could probably beat the
Boston Celtics. When there are
11,000 screaming fans, all against
you, needless to say things can get
a little hectic. ButKentucky is not
that good this year. When they
played us in Florida gym they did
not choke. Tom Kron and Louie
Dampier are two of the coolest
characters in the basketball
business. They didnt get shook in
Florida gym and they had a field
day in Kentucky. And heres the
bad news they will both return
next year.
Tennessees field house is
another sore subject. But, Tenne Tennessee
ssee Tennessee has got to play in our gym on
March 1. Then we will see just how
good they are.
Now, we have three home games
coming up. They are against
Auburn, Mississippi and
Mississippi State. We will be
favored, of course in all three.
But then we have to go to

' 'zmmm
Vanderbilt. So why not try and get
up for that game now. Our chances
of winning the first basketball title
are very doubtful, but an upset of
Vanderbilt would be delicious.
No, loyal Gator fans. I am not
changing my stand, I am trying to
clarify it. Several of the members
on the team are good friends of
mine and you just don't jump all
over friends (or enemies for that
matter) for losing a single game.
So if you missed my point read
the article again. And remember
