The petition was presented on
the steps by a group of about 75

following a march from the Plaza
of the Americas, where they had
held an hour-long rally and peti petitionanny.
The entire incident, which began
with the noon rally and ended with
the petition presentation at 1:20
p.m., took on a carnival air.
The rally was highlighted by
folk songs and speeches over a
portable public address system
whose loudspeakers were toted on
a little red Red Flyer" wagon.
A 10-point student Bill of Rights"
was distributed at the Plaza pro proceedings.
Even as the pro-Richerites
gathered on the Plaza, a group of
students with posters proclaiming
Richer Must Go" and Richer
Get Out" was forming. By the
time the marchers reached Tigert,
they were vastly outnumbered by
the Richer Must Go" group and
The march was led by UF in instructor
structor instructor Marshall Jones, who spoke
earlier at the rally. Between the
Plaza and Tigert, marchers sang

other selections called The Muz Muzzled

Free Student Spirit."
Richer himself trailed near the
end of the procession.

In search of Maturity
(ED. NOTE: This editorial is reprinted from
The Tampa Tribune, March 31, 1965.)
College days would be devoid of restraint
and responsibility and students could forget
classes and occupy themselves with speeches
and picket signs, if a conference held last
weekend had its way.
Called Democracy on Campus, the meeting
brought together several hundred of the most
ardent fomenters of collegiate rebellion and
concluded with adoption of a loud manifesto.
Under this Student Bill of Rights, college
administrators would be relegated to main maintenance,
tenance, maintenance, clerical and safety functions--without
any say-so over the way their institutions
Who would have the real authority? Why,
the students and professors, of course.
Tuition fees would be eliminated, loyalty
oaths would be thrown out, campus law en enforcement
forcement enforcement would be under student-faculty
control, R.O.T.C. units would be abolished
and thered be complete freedom of speech.
The conference in Philadelphia included
students from the strife-ridden University of
California at Berkeley as well as a number
of Eastern schools. It was held at the
University of Pennsylvania.
Delegates representing a number of
so-called activist groups, including the
Marxist-line Duois Clubs neglected to say
that most of the changes they propose are
already in effect in a number of South American
countries. There, professional leftist students
cant be bothered oy studies, for theyre too
busy with demonstrations and political
movements year after year.
A Marxist tone was injected into the
Philadelphia manifesto, with reference to the
financial, industrial and military establish establishment
ment establishment which, the delegates maintain, is running
Americas academic life.
But the worst villains of all, according to
the groups draft document, are the
administrators who have found ingenious
theories to suppress student maturity and
thoughtful action.* True, true. Some presidents
and regents would even forbid students to
parade filthy words on campus placards; and
some of these unreasonable officials go to
the extreme of contending that universities
are places for disciplinea instruction rather
than for individual self-expression.
What these young loud-mouths really want is
not an education but a privileged form of
anarchy, subsidized by the taxpayers and
doting parents. They have been too much
tolerated; and like a spoiled child, they grow
nastier with indulgence.
Its time, we say, for colleges to stop
temporizing with these disruptive elements, as
the University of California has done to its
sorrow. Either let them abide by the reason reasonable
able reasonable regulations which every educational
institution must impose, or boot them out
placards, manifestoes, beards and all. There
are more than enough young men and women
seriously in search of maturity who will be
grateful to seize their abandoned opportunities.

By JON DEMME
TO ADD MY humble words of praise to
the raves already accorded Wild
Strawberries'* Bergman's masterpiece, by film
critics the world over would be to risk irate
charges of plagarism; surely every laudatory
adjective known to man has been used in
describing this remarkable film. The heart
and soul of man are the areas explored here
with poetic care. Strawberries*' will be at
the State through April 10th. It's a must-see.
THE BIGGEST PARTY of the year is going
full-tilt at stately Hollis House, but Charlotte
Hollis and her boyfriend John Mayhew are
nowhere to be seen. Ah ha! So here they are
spoonin' in the summer house. Huh? Wait a
minute Charlotte's in tears! John wants
to call the whole thing off!
THE CAD how could he? Bouquet in
hand, Char goes racing out, weeping bitterly.
Gone forever probably, but no! rustling noises
WHAT IS THIS SGER? Who is
this man named Richer? Why
the utter lack of coherence in
protesting his unjust cause?
The Student Group for Equal
Rights (Freedom Forum) seems to
be a group of totally irresponsible
individuals who not only act the
part but dress it as well. Any of
us who have seen these outrageous
responsible individuals on
campus should certainly be able
to recognize them at a moments
Any group which condones the
dress of these individuals and
their dress, hair long enough to
set in pin curls, beards full enough
to substitute as nests, and clothes
which have been overlooked in last
month's wash, must certainly be
as irresponsible as it's members.
NOT ONLY DO they resent all
forms of authority, but act as
children when their demands are
not met. Surely gentlemen, a sit-in
at the Alligator office to protest
the absence of letter publications,
which in the opinions of the editors
are either of poor quality, mis misrepresentation,
representation, misrepresentation, or cannot be
printed because of a of space,
does not present your organization

Freedom of the Press is perhaps
the one freedom which all
Americans have not been denied
and the fact that your protestation
made front page copy is proof
enough that the Alligator still holds
And what of your actions con condoning
doning condoning students who feel their
education comes second or last to
the march in Selma, Alabama?
What exactly was the grade standing
of these martyred members who
felt their actions would better the
cause of civilized man in un uncivilized
civilized uncivilized America? Why limit
their scope to America only?
If they are so concerned over
the welfare of man, in particular
the Negro, why don't they go to
the Harlem districts of New York,
Chicago, Boston, and other areas
of America in which the Negro
surely needs salvation? I'm sure
the Negro of Selma, if given the
chance to flee north to the ghettos
of his northern brethern, would
pass it up.

Hie Firebugs is exciting theater to eye, ear, and mind. Florida
Players, under the direction of Donald Borchardt, give a near-pro near-professional
fessional near-professional performance of Max Frisch's strange combination of comedy
and devastating reality. It is not the sort of reality many have cohie to
expect in the theater; it is older than Ibsen and Shaw (e.g. the chorus)
and newer than anything the Players have attempted (e.g., touches of
the Theater of the Absurd).
Frisch is a Swiss architect who is also a writer. The Firebugs,
produced as a radio play in 1953, was re-done for the stage in 1958.
It is subtitled A Learning Play Without a Lesson", but there is a
Duerranmatt sort of irony in that phrasing. Indeed Frisch and the
Duerranmatt of The Visit share a similar view of human nature.
The first action we see on the main stage is the lighting of a cigar
and that little flame has special significance, for the whole town lives
in fear of arson. The firemen have performed their mechanic
choreography of calisthentics, pole-descent, and instant mobilization.
The people, who no longer believe in God, but only in the fire depart department,
ment, department, know all precautions are bing taken against the firebugs. Yet
we see the arsonists accepted in a home, given storage for their
gasoline, a festive dinner, and even the matches for the fuse.
Herr Biedermann (which means respectable bourgeois, a man of
Philistine integrity, in German) sees the arsonists plotting destruction,
yet he does nothing. Why? Because he doesn't understand, doesn't
believe it possible, doesn't feel free enough of guilt himself to act?
Because he almost wants destruction in order to get things over with?
He doesn't believe in his work, he has trouble sleeping, his wife has
a heart condition. If he has values, they are primarily the marketable
In the climactic (aLso hilarious) dinner scene, he is called Everyman.
Superlatives mean less when everybody in the cast is good, but some something
thing something must be said about how very good the actors are.
John Lea as Biedermann sustains a demanding role to the end, with
just the right of sort of laugh for a Biedermann and an authoritative
presence; his speech to the firemen when they confront him in the street
is one of the finest things in the production.
Margaret Beistle as his wife is perhaps too pretty for a simple simpleminded
minded simpleminded bourgeois wife, but her wonderfully expressive face and voice
enrich the play strangely. Mrs. Biedermann's misplaced pity is as
responsible as her husband's blundering for the anihilation of the town.
And Margaret Beistle's stylized handling of the role reinforces the
"epic" qualities of the play.
The two arsonists, who are power-mad, and only secondarily
proletarian victims of the social order, are expertly played by Mike
Beistle and Jerry Rhodes.
Again we have unusually articulate faces ( the production should
be filmed for more close-ups ) and a sure gift for comedy. Beistle,
as a unique combination of winsome vulgarity, is intelligent per perception,
ception, perception, and is perfect in the role of the convict-wrestler and Rhodes
has some of the best lines of the play which he delivers with appro appropriate
priate appropriate breeziness and leering.
Fine supporting work is done by Miml Carr as the maid and Ride
Schuster as the Ph.D. who reads a statement on the firebugs when no
one can hear him any more because of the fire sirens.
The chorus led by veteran Players Bob Hefley, Alan Armstrong, and
Terry Daugherty are excellent and the two walk-on parts are well
done. Mary Stephenson's surrealistic costumes shrewdly suggest
various conflicts in the characters self-concept; in fact, the play would
have been a good deal less with a less gifted costumer. Henry Swanson's
ceiling-high semi-constructivist set exploits even Norman Hall Audi Auditorium
torium Auditorium to accommodate the half dozen or so acting areas.
The technical staff, who are unfortunately too numerous to name,
to a superb job, especially on lights and music.
For those who like to read plays before they see them, I should
warn that in translation at least The Firebugs does not read well and
needs to be seen, as plays should be,
There are no poetically beautiful lines, but there is provocative
comment on ends and means, the sanctity of private property, class classconsciousness,
consciousness, classconsciousness, thought and action, and nihilism in academia.
Hie play combines ritual elements with parodistic absurdities, yet
it is perfectly comprehensible (the Communist take-over of Czecho Czechoslavakia,
slavakia, Czechoslavakia, Hitler, the Bomb).
It is bizarre in a well-formed Aristotelian sort of way and the less
experienced play-goer should not be confused by the startling aspects
of the production.
Frisch has written a curiously satisfactory drama ."curiously"
because who wants to be told he is a fool? Yet somehow in facing the
holocaust of his ultimate folly, there may be tragic purgation too.
The hardest scene for the Players to do must have been the curtain

can take the press out of Lee-Prest slacks
Not that it's on his mind right now. And it needn't he. Those Lee-
Prest Leesures can't help but stay crisp and neat. No matter what you
put them through. They have a new permanent press. So the crease stays
in. The wrinkles stay out. Permanently. And that's without ironing. No
touch-ups, either. They're made from Lee's special blend of 50% polyester
and 50% combed cotton. For wash and wear... with conviction.
Incidentally, that permanent press is the only change we've made
in Leesures. They still have that lean, honest 100 k... smart, tailored fit.
New Lee-Prest Leesures. Test their permanent press yourself. It isn't
necessary, but it's a great way to spend an evening. From $5.98 to $7.98.
