The Regents
are resigned
' T
Not wishing to hinder the governors plans
for a new Board of Regents, the incumbents
resigned themselves to defeat rather than
await the inevitable in June.
Their move has caused many to despair
for the future of higher education in Florida.
But it cannot be said that the Regents had
an y ernj *ti v e Many of Gov. Burns critics
call this a flagrant abuse of power on his part,
and so it is.
However, there is little doubt that any other
governor would not have exerted the same
pressure on the lame-duck regents. After all,
the state university system has long been
(politically) controlled, and to some it
represents a plum of sorts.
But is there any way to take the university
system out of politics? It is highly doubtful
that any governor would invest a state agency
with power which could not be vetoed, in the
final analysis, by himself.
Then what is left for the state university
How about a constitutional amendment which
would vest the power of appointing a board of
regents in the state cabinet? This idea is not
new, but it has been some time since this
solution was discussed in the state legislature.
It is well known by those familiar with
state politics, that the members of the state
cabinet do not always see eye-to-eye on matters
of education. If the state cabinet had such
power, it is not likely that the governor could
railroad through a hand-picked Board of

governing board which had the features of

postfioned, dispostfioned, personable, smiling
readily for all good souls, he was
guilty of one great fault: he liked

about, Don Quixotically, to make
the world a better place in which
to live.
It occurred to

a plan to eliminate
all harshly red stop lights in favor
of delicately shaded pink ones.
He composed a petition urging
his deeply felt beliefs.
Because stop lights invariably
affect drivers and pedestrians, the
good Doctor thought it not unwise
to bring his petition directly to
the people. He proceeded to the
streets, avenues, boulevards of
all the world, and he spoke in the
language of the common man.

of the Florida Alligator, saying that
the reason the University of South

that it knew no other system since

and the semester system was in

I suggest you verify your evidence
prior to making such statements
in the future, Mr. Sharpe.
THE MAJORITY favors the

good efficient system, making full

In college, students read for many purposes. The

a C-3 examination, continued Melton.

Illness, bad weather ruined
last weeks football drill

Rain, injuries and illness to
coaches and players alike slowed
spring football drills to a virtual
halt this past week and also pushed
a major shift of personnel into
the background at Florida.
Coach Ray Graves' Gators are
in the position of almost starting
over Monday after missing
practically the entire third week
of drills for a variety of reasons.
Graves, who was bed-ridden with
a bad cold for most of the past
week, did find time to make a big
move of players which is designed
to bring relief to the thus far
unimpressive middle of the Gator
defenisve line.
