This week the Gator salutes Bill McCollum,
current business manager of The Florida
Conservative, President of the Florida Union
Board of Student Activities, and Chairman
of the Campus Conservative Club. He has
been Chairman of the Florida Union Forums
Committee this past year and helped bring
such speakers as Victor Riesel, William
Rusher, and Vance Packard to this campus.
Bill was also President of the Circle K
Club this year and was their Treasurer in
the Fall of 1963. In Student Government, he
has served as Secretary of Mens Affairs,
Chairman and Publisher of ROTC Orientation
Information Booklet, and SG Representative
to Murphree Area Council.
Bill was the recipient of the Florida Union
Boards Outstanding Committee Chairman
Award for 1964, was on the Deans list for
the Winter of 1963, and mantains a 3.1 overall
average in English. We salute Bill McCollum
for his varied service to the UF.
Today we are re-running an editorial from
the Jacksonville Times-Union defending com compulsory
pulsory compulsory ROTC. It was brought to our attention
by the Army ROTC Gung-Ho, and since all
party platforms contain planks calling for the
abolition of compulsory ROTC we Feel that
it presents another side of the issue which
should be examined before any action is taken.
Our own position is that we fail to see a
direct correlation between compulsory ROTC
and national security. Granted that there is
a need for trained officers with a college
education; but, since the advanced programs
which lead to a commission are voluntary,
we do not feel that a compulsory basic program
accomplishes anything except to breed further
resentment towards the service.,
Furthermore, for those interested in
becoming service officers, reserve and officer
training programs after graduation supplement
ROTC to provide qualified officers.
Finally, if there does indeed exist a need
for more service personnel, a compulsory
4-year program leading to commission makes
more sense than a compulsory 2-year program
that leads to nothing besides two hours of
drill a week that seems incredibly divorced
from patriotic duty.

THE GATOR SALUTES ***
AN EXCELLENT example of what Barbara
Ward terms as the Peter Pan mentality can
be seen in the recent vote of the House of
Representatives to deny US surplus food sales
to the United Arab Republic. People possessing
the Peter Pan frame of mind have the
unadmirable quality of meeting serious
situations and problems with essentially
immature behavior. The action which results
from such thinking is readily apparent. Stated
Simply, it is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a
tooth, revenge regardless of the consequences
even at the expense of mature judgement.
CONGRESSMEN, irked over the destruction
of our library in Cairo, Egypt by African
students and by the aid given to the Congolese
rebels by the YAR, have voted to cut off future
sales of surplus food to Egypt (House Speaker
McCormack strongly protested this action.)
I SUPPOSE one of the nicer facets of retaliation
in anger against another government is that it
doesn't take very much subtle thinking to
consider the pros and cons of the situation and,
more importantly, the long range effect it will
have on the US position in foreign affairs.
THE INSIDIOSNESS of this Peter Pan frame
of mind is clear it momentarily satisfies
us by getting one pound of flesh out of the
offender. But what of the long range effects?
CUTTING OFF needed foodstuffs
(approximately 30 million Egyptians must grow
their entire food supply on about 5% of the land
the rest is unsuitable for agricultural production,
at least until the Aswan Dam is completed) will
not only further alienate Egyptian Arabs but
will also alienate 70 million other Arabs and
Africans living south of the Sahara Desert: for
President Nasser is not only the leader of the
Egyptians but is also looked upon by nearly
all Arabs as the symbol of leadership, Arab
unity, and strong anti-colonialism.
IN THE precarious, complex balance between
the East and West, it really does matter what
the neutral nations think and do, it really does
matter whether they remain neutral or turn
further towards the communists. By tying the
President's hands in the are a of foreign policy policyan
an policyan area specifically reserved to the President
by the Constitution the congress will surely
weaken our world position and our ability
to remain flexible in our foreign policy.
WHILE I dislike the destruction of our library
in Cairo as much as anyone (it was burned by
African students, not the UAR), I also dislike
congress's encroaching on the power of the
President and the State Department to deal with
foreign countries in their more knowledgeable
and informed manner.
AS FOR Nasser's aid to the Congolese rebels,
it must be remembered that it is the idea of
anti-colonialism and African self-determination
which above all is responsible for that aid.
Aid to the rebels by Nasser does not mean
he is pro-communist, anti-American, or even
necessarily pro-rebel. The rebels represent
anti-colonialism, Moise Tshombe represents
colonial influence in Africa, so UAR aid goes
obviously to the rebels and not to Tshombe.
WHILE I do not believe that all actions taken
against the US by foreign governments should
go unheeded, I do firmly believe that the power
to deal with the offending country should be left
fully within the hands of the man in the White
House. The world's problems have never been
solved by simple-minded actions, and I feel
certain that neither will the problems of the

Â£: (ED. NOTE: The following is reprinted from j: : :

Â£: An old and honored institution on many
xj American campuses could begin going into

Â£ if action is taken which has been recommended
X; to the University Senate. The proposal has been Â£:
X; made to that body that the compulsory basic
course in the Reserve Officers* Training Corps Â£
:Â£ program be dropped by 1967. Â£
x This suggestion is in complete conformance
x with the American attitude in general during

neer-do-well Cracker who sees no use in
:Â£ repairing a leaky roof when the sun is shining,
Â£ the American people are prone to go into route

Moreover, it is the temper of American youth Â£
to chafe under any system of discipline that Â£
X; might smack in the least of regimentation. To
Â£ them, anything that is done by the numbers is Â£
:Â£: abhorrent, and they dislike for a must factor Â£
Â£ to impinge in any way on their lives, :Â£
:Â£ The downgrading of military training in x

Â£: framework of several -hundred thousand reserve
x officers, most of them ROTC graduates, pro pro:>

Â£: * World War II saved the day. A proposal
Â£ that there be a slackening off of emphasis on
x this kind of training proves again that the Â£
:Â£ American memory is short.
:Â£ The dwindling away of the civilian officer

Â£ submitted to such a diminution in the ranks of Â£
Â£ essential leadership have paid the price.
:Â£ There remain but few disciplinary influences

program is one of them. It inculcates in :Â£
-x American youth those qualities which have
been missing both in officers and men in some Â£
:Â£ of recent battlefield experiences of the United

x Reverence fbr constituted authority and an
Â£: understanding of orderly procedure, products

Â£ by bohemian intellectuals of the campus, Â£
Â£: should be devoutly sought for American young

IN ORDER to complete my undergraduate
work I have returned to the University after
an absence of several years. Since I left in
1958 the trimester system has come into being,
and it was a major factor in my decision to
return to school at a relatively advanced age.
I am surprised to find the system under attack
from various quarters here, and I think a few
words in its defense are in order:
1. THE TRIMESTER system makes it
possible to complete work toward a degree
significantly sooner than before.
2. WHILE THE system undoubtedly
increases faculty and staff workload, there is
no reason why it should work a hardship on
students. Those who feel overloaded and those
who feel no sense of urgency may reduce their
loads to suitable levels. If relief for the faculty
is in order, an increase in workforce is the
answer, not a slowdown.
3. THE SYSTEM denies the student nothing.
It merely asks a somewhat higher degree of
effort than before for optimum return. The
taxpayers of Florida, who are subsidizing the
activities of every student here in the hope
of receiving future benefits to the state, have
the right to expect m ov 'mum efficiency in the
use of our multi' ..>
plant. No student reasonably ask the state
to expend public funds in his behalf while he
proceeds at a leisurely pace.

4. COLLEGE IS not a career in itself.
Any system which permits the student to apply
himself more fully and finish school sooner
is of material benefit to those who are here
with serious intent. The others might well go to
a school organized for their purposes, whatever
those are, rather than remain here and agitate
for a return to the academic snails pace of
RONALD G. COTTON, JR. 2UC
THURSDAYS cartoon by Jess Gregory has
motivated me to express what seems to be a
minority opinion concerning the trimester
system. I personally favor it.
THE CHIEF problem with the trimester seems
to be its size: namely, it is not possible to
conveniently fit one semester into one trimester
since the latter is smaller. Professors who
attempt to deliver their three-hour semester
courses in one trimester find that there is not
enough time for the proper amount of
assimilation, discussion, outside reading, and
other intellectually desirable pursuits.
Thursday, Feb. 4, 1965/ The Florida Alligator,
STUDENTS who sign up for a typical fifteen
or sixteen tour load of such courses are
THERE ARE two obvious solutions to the
above problem: (1) decrease the average course
load, and (2) modify the course content to con conform
form conform with the available time. It is evident that
both of these methods are being used more
and more but the trimester is still new enough
that complaints are evident.
IT IS TRUE that two semesters of work cannot
be comfortably accomplished in two trimesters,
but there are three trimesters per year, not
two, and here lies its advantage. Much more
can be accomplished in three trimesters than
in two semesters and one summer session"
under the old system.
THE ABOVE opinion must be modified by
the fact that I am a graduate student and thus
concerned primarily with study which was
not the case during my undergraduate years.
My opinion is thus biased. However, it may be
of some value to poll the opinion of four major
groups: (1) professors; (2) graduate students;
(3) third and fourth year undergraduates; and
(4) UC students. Such an opinion poll might
be of some use to the study of the system.

rzzzzz THE SPORTS EYE "I
surprises with |fipM
dynamic reform )|K||i|
By ANDY MOOR
Assistant Sports Editor
Usually, the SEC meeting is a mere formality with the only
order of business being the annual denial of Florida States bid
for conference membership.
This years edition, however, appears to be an exception. Not
only was business conducted, but many of the leagues perennial
shackles were broken.
For the first time in history, something was done to eliminate
the ridiculous manner in which conference football championships
can be won (much to Mississippis dismay).
Starting in 1970, a round-robin football schedule goes into
practice. Each team will be required to play seven (no more, no
less will count) league games. Five of the seven may be against
the same opponent, year after year. The other two must vary
from year to year so that each conference team meets all other
members at least once in three campiJgns. This could well
spell an end to Ole Miss domination of SEC football.
Another ludicrous statute wiped from the books was the sit
on your hands bowl acceptance policy. This required a team
to complete its season before it could accept a post season bid.
The end of this rule will enable the bowl committees to plan matches
In another historic move, the conference voted tobreak relations
with the American Football League. This action was promulgated
by the sinister dealings by the AFL in the premature signing
of Georgia Tackle Jim Wilson.
Officials offered the AFL an opportunity to abide by the new
bylaws on recruiting by pro teams set up at the NCAA annual
meeting. When Commissioner Joe Foss declined, the SEC took
this unprecedented action, which should help put an end to pro professional
fessional professional interference.
The meeting produced other results, of course. Bernie Moore
was retained as commissioner, although hes approaching 70, and
Tulanes resignation was tendered and approved. FSUs bid for
conference membership was denied once-again. It appears that ,
the Seminoles will encounter even more resistance in the future
when the new football schedule comes into effect. Although the
same logic was faulty last fall, the conferences word may be
Never, FSU, Never. But, obviously, the first three mentioned
were most important.
The SEC has always been one of the top athletic conferences
in the nation, but in the past, something seemed to be lacking
administratively. Now, over the short period of a few days, the
conference has become possibly the No. 1 policy maker in inter intercollegiate
collegiate intercollegiate athletics.
