The students here are apathetic."
Thats the concensus of two UF professors and the chairman of
Freedom Party after discussing the Berkeley riots and their significance j
to the UF campus.
This just isnt a big thing on campus," said Walter T. Rosenbaum,
assistant professor of political science. This campus isnt inclined
toward radical action."
Were not as cosmopolitan as the Berkeley campus," said Frank
T. Adams, dean of men.
Adams blamed the Berkeley riots on a lack of communication.. This
happens at any large University," Adams said.
Rosenbaum blamed the riots on student anonimity.
Edward J. Richer, instructor of humanities, said the administrations
determination of a student's needs and the students actual needs
conflict. He asked whether the discrepancy was so great that there is
an inevitable collision resulting in a revolution.
Berkeleyhappens to be a situation where this did occur," Richer
The only solution I can reach, to the extent thaterkeleystudents
are typical of American students in general, is that a collision between
students and administrations everywhere is inevitable," Richer said.
He added, This presupposes that administrations everywhere are
as inept and clumsy as the administration at Berkeley seems to be.*
Rosenbaum argued that the sit-in demonstrations were insane.
They got what they wanted without them. They also got rid of the
president of the university Rosenbaum said.
Berkeley has a tradition for this sort of thing," Rosenbaum said.
The riot has served as a kind of magnet not only for students, but
for so-called creative types because its something to do and because
they feel its a good interest."

we want to take humanity. Its like

Wailes is heading a Moral

task force is on a speaking tour

The Viet Nam crisis has only
served to dramatize the firmly

the staff and students of the University of Florida

IN A UNIVERSITY that is considered one of the
leading Centers for Latin American Studies in this
country, it is important that we take a positive attitude
towards our role in this area. This is not to imply
that the Alligator should in any way shade its tone or
coverage for the sake of public relations.

Although several factors affect
this reduction in enlistments,
including changes in population
of enlistment age, employment
trends, and shifts in the recruiting
policies of the services, a recent
Defense Department analysis
pointed especially to the effect of
the draft controversy on voluntary
It is reasonable to assume that

applied for enlistment during this

of this publicity, said the report.

studies, said the report,
indicated that any major change
in attitude among young men
concerning the prospects of being

any major change in the present
reliance on the draft system of
providing military manpower.

Honduras labors under military control

SOME OF THE UF students from Honduras
are offended because your article on Honduras
in the March 4 issue of THE FLORIDA ALLIGATOR
had me saying things they think are too extreme.
Alvaro Aguirre in THE ALLIGATOR of March 8,
takes me to task, so I hope you wUI permit me to
make myself clear as the people of Honduras are
a wonderful, hard-working, long-suffering group who
deserve much better in the way of government than
they are getting.
MY CRITICS ARE especially concerned because
THE ALLIGATOR quoted me as saying that Hon Honduras
duras Honduras has no future." What I actually said was that
Honduras has no future unless she incorporates
herself into some kind of larger unit, perhaps a
United States of Central America." I said this
because all of history demonstrates that clinging to
an outmoded form of national sovereignty by a small
population living in an undeveloped, relatively poor
area can only lead to a continuation of that poverty.
Although Alvaro Aguirre is an agricultural
specialist and I am a political scientist, I roust
disagree with him when he writes that Honduras'
natural resources are substantial and for the most
part still untapped." What resources? I would ask
HONDURAS HAD A population on June 30, 1960
of 1,953,094. Os this number only 12 per cent lived
in towns over 5,000 and there were no large
cities in the country. The largest city, Tegucigalpa,
(the capital) had a population in 1958 of 106,949.
IT SS THE ONLY capital city in America without
a railroad and its water siq?ply is so bad during
the dry season the mains are closed each day for
some time. About 50 per cent of the children do
not attend school, and in 1958 the illiteracy rate,
for those 10 years and older was 61 ner cent. %
HOW DO : THESE mostly illiterate people make
a living? In 1950, 83.1 per cent of the economically
active population were in agriculture. The result
is that the gross national product is about 159
dollars a year per person. In addition, the most
) important economic enterprises are owned by foreign
corporations which drain their profits out of
WITH SUCH POVERTY and illiteracy health is
generally poor. But the government never has enough'
money to seriously change anything. From 1948 to
1957 the gross domestic product, at constant prices,
rose at an average annual rate of 3.8 per cent, but
at the same time the population went up 3.4 per
cent each year.
THUS HONDURAS practically stood still and in
1965 Honduras has a majority of its population
living about as their ancestors did, scratching out a
living from subsistence agriculture. In 1963 the
entire npHpnal budget amounted to only a trifle

IN THESE DAYS of cold wars and Com rounist
agitators promising Utopia tomorrow, how long can
a country go on in this way. Especially when the
past four hundred years of misrule have prepared
poor soil for the growth of progressive demo democratic
cratic democratic institutions.
THE DICTATORSHIP which rules Honduras today
can do nothing, for Honduras needs massive amounts
of money to make up for the misgovernment and
neglect of problems for more than 400 years and
there does not seem to be any place these funds.
can be found, either Internally or internationally.
THIS IS THE reason I maintain that the only hope
for countries such as Honduras is to get rid of their
regressive governments and to incorporate them-'
selves into a larger unit.
PERHAPS IF THE trappings of sovereignty
armies, diplomatic corps, frontier guards, etc.
were disposed of and Honduras were a part of a
United States of Central America it would be able
to begin the process of modernizing her antiquated
system, and improving the health and education of
her people.
THE LIBERAL PARTY led by President Villeda
Morales seemed to be heading in that direction,
but the entrenched defenders of her antiquated
social structure by force took over the country
and instituted a military dictatorship.
UNLESS THIS dictatorship is expelled and the
Liberal Party again gains power, the people of
Honduras will be doomed to continue living as
they have in thp past and the danger of Communist
totalitarian demogogues capturing the country will
grow greater.
IT IS FOR these reasons that I said it is time
for Honduras to become part of a larger unit or
it will have no future. If great and powerful states
like France, Germany, and Italy cooperate and work
together toward a United States of Europe, Hon Honduras
duras Honduras and the other Central American countries can
do no less.
MY KNOWLEDGE of Honduras and her scholars
and political leaders convince me that they see this
and their enthusiasm for the Central American
Common Market and the other cooperative efforts
now going on demonstrates this. I am sure that
when democracy returns to Honduras further co cooperation
operation cooperation will be pushed until Honduras will begin
to solve her problems in cooperation with her

we are all going to look trim as

Tax problems?
Go to UFs clinic

Staff Writer
Students with tax problems can
go to the UF Tax Clinic** to
have them solved free of charge.
According to J. T. Ball, Assis Assistant
tant Assistant Professor of Accounting the
Tax Clinic* was established to
help senior accounting students
as well as Florida students who
are having income tax problems.
Students can come to the tax
clinic to find out if their education
expenses are tax deductible as
well as to get help on any tax
matter,** Ball said.
Many students dont realize that
they have special tax exemptions,
according to Ball.
Students can be an exemption
on their own as well as their
parents tax returns, he said.
To do this a student must be
attending school on a full time
basis five months of the calendar
year and have his parents
contributing more than 50 per cent
to his support.
The parents of a senior
graduating in April cannot claim a
student as an exemption because

he did not attend school for five
months of the calendar year, if he
made over six hundred dollars,"
Ball said.
"Another thing many students
are unaware of is the new minimum
standard deduction, which allows a
single person to claim at least nine
hundred dollars exemption on their
returns," he added.
Scholarships and fellowships
might not be taxable income if
they fall into certain categories,
according to Ball.
"If a person receives a scholar scholarship
ship scholarship and is a candidate for a
degree and if he is not required
to furnish services at that time
or any future time unless this
service is required of candidates
for that degree, the money is not
taxable,** Ball said.
Scholarships and fellowships are
taxable if they benefit the person
or company who gave them.
Ball cited the Ribicoff Amend Amendment
ment Amendment of the new tax bill under
consideration by the U. S. House
of Representatives, as a future
aid to students and their parents.
"This would provide a tax credit
for anyone paying for a students
education," he said.

damages or injured donor eyes are used for research.
"It's a race against time," said Miss Bowman. The donor's eyes
have to be removed within four hours after death. The recipient must
have the operation within 44 hours after removal.
Physicians in 30 affiliated hospitals throughout North Florida aid
the eye bank by removing donor eyes from the deceased.
Major commercial airlines also cooperate with the eye bank.
Donor eyes are transported free of charge on regularly scheduled

Staff Writer
The deadline for Fall Orientation group leader
applications has been extended until March 12.
Frank Glinn, 4 ED, student director of orientation,
said "we need at least 130 persons to fill the posts
in September."
He continued, "We're looking for people who know
the campus well, it's physical plant as well as its
operations and processes. Such things as regulations,
academic affairs, and extra-curriculars."
To date only 200 persons have been Interviewed.
If chosen, their main duty will be to aid the incoming
freshman or transfer student in adjusting to the UF
and help assigned groups during registration.
"This is an opportunity for interested students
to serve the university. Those selected to be group
leaders help ease the transition into a large
university community for students new to the UF,"
Glinn explained.
Group leaders are also being recruited for the
April and June summer sessions. Ten leaders are
needed for the April program and 14 in June.
Interested persons should fill out an application
in Room 200 of the Florida Union and sign up for
an interview before Friday.

In the sixth and seventh, some
sterling defensive play saved the
Gators. Ken Huebner was thrown
out trying to stretch a triple into
a homer in the former while Ron
Creese took a fly ball and cut
down a runner trying to score
in the latter.

eighth, but he bore down and struck

Danny Eggart came on to face

hitter to fly to center. Ken

singled home the tying run with
two out.

were enough to give Southern its
