Prejudice is a mutual thing, he said.Thepoor

the average American shields himself from the youth

Both are prejudiced against the other because
they have no knowledge, no contact with each other.
Almost the same communication gap prevails be between

opinion expressed most often between youth talking

In turn, parents are baffled by the almost complete
absorption of youth in their own world.

The problem of Rugh and many

Nothing prevents a 19-year-old

Florida in 1962) from living and
working in Florida.
But the law DOES prevent this

One dark, cloudy night this year, I found myself
walking along a very deep river. While walking, my
preoccupied mind was searching for the truth of this
life, for some ideal to follow. Suddenly a light flashed
in the distance, probably coming from a fishing boat,
and then the truth came to me. Today, here in hell,
I still ask myself how was it possible for me to re remain
main remain blind for so long. A Communist life that was
the truth I discovered that dark, cloudy night.
Just think! A place so wonderful that everything
belongs to everyone and nothing belongs to any one.
Or, heaven on earth! A place where every idea that
doesnt agree with my Communist ideas can be com completely
pletely completely eliminated. Thanks Russia, thanks for this
heaven! A place where by belonging to the police I
can let my sadistic pleasures run wild (e.g., in
Communist Cuba, rolled up towels soaked with hot
water are used to flagelate those concealing infor-.
mation from the government). Thanks mother for
the liberation of my passions! A place where in intellectual
tellectual intellectual perfection is so great that I dont have to
worry about what I will be for it is chosen for me at
a very early age. Oh, Jefferson, you just dont know
what you missed! A place where I am only taught what
I should know; where freedom, private ownership and
religion are almost unheard of. Thanks Father Lenin
for your great legacy. A place where the interests
of all the citizens are decided by a select few.
Happiness of the soul, not having to decide.
Now that I have told you of my place you probably
want to steal it from me, so I had better get on with
my story. Walking and walking, while thinking of my
place, I fell into the river. Drowning and thinking, I
finally woke up, and right there in the middle of the

Dr. Reitz spoke out against the antiquated system of processing

Under the present system, a request by a university must go

the university and the -Board of Regents of its decision. By the time

Frisky, Smythe said blandly.

HISTORY will be made today, Smythe mused.
Hagarity studied his friend. They smiled at each
other. They shook hands. They exchanged hand
Yes, said Hagarity, chokingly.
Ten minutes later the pair were in front of Tigert
Hall. They reconnoitered. Just like the movies,
Smythe thought as he knocked out a dean standing
guard by the door. Whats clear? he said at
last. Smythe, unperturbed, explained that they might
go in. Hagarity paused. His bulbous nose profiled
against the full moon, his glabrous head shining,
a man of purpose and principle, he spat upon the
steps at Tigert Hall and gave the coqyn and to charge.
They broke the windows to get in. The doors were
opened, but they wanted to break the windows any anyway.

desk asked if she could be of assistance. Smythe
pointed, the revolver at her. Hagarity brandished
the rapier. My God! she thought, Freshmen!
We want the It, Hagarity said.
We want the It, Smythe echoed.
WE WANT the It, they sang in chorus to the
tune of Swanee.
The young woman turned pale. Reality hit her on
the head like a ton of bunions. You cant have the
It, she said bravely. No one gets the It.
Hagarity saw that Smythe was getting nervous.
When Smythe became nervous, he invariably barfed.
It always depressed Hagarity to see Smythe barf.
He decided theyd better leave.
Thank you for your time, said Hagarity, polite 1).
The receptionist bit her nails.
Upstairs they came before the room. It was Room
101. It was on the second floor, but they called it
Room 101 just the same. Hagarity turned to Smythe
who was nervous. Youre sure? he asked.
Smythe swallowed hard. He choked on what he
swallowed. He wiped his wet forehead with hi
wet shirt. Im sure, he said.
THEY BROKE the door down. The door would
have opened if they had tried it, but they wanted
to break it anyhow.
There, before them, the It stood in all its terri e
glory. The sight of the It made Smythe nervous.
Hagarity, intrepid, lunged at the It with the rapier*

I object
As a student, I object to the fact that Mr. Richer is allowed to write
a weekly column in The Alligator. Mr. Richer is not on The Alligator
staff and, to the best of my knowledge, has no official connection what whatsoever
soever whatsoever with the UF at this time.
His views are already well known to most of the student body and
have been decisively rejected in at least two instances: His creature,
Freedom Party, polled barely 10 per cent of the vote in the last student
government elections; his own well-publicized petition was received
just as coldly by the students last spring. Why then, is Mr. Richer
given such a platform each week by The Alligator to desseminate his
stale propaganda?
I do not question Mr. Richers right to be heard, but I do not believe
that he is entitled to a personal column in The Alligator. Let him
express his views in the Letters to the Editor column as the rest
of us must do.

New Scoring Formula
For UF Progress Tests
Alligator Staff Writer
A new scoring formula will be used when the first progress tests
are administered by the university board of examiners on October 5 at
7 p.m. The courses tested on that evening will be CPS 121, CPS 122,

and CY 215.
The new system, which has been
designed to eliminate guessing,
will simply be scoring the number
of right answers the student marks.
For example, if there are 100
questions on the test, and the stu student
dent student misses 20, his grade will be
80. Under the old system, scoring
.he number right minus the number
wrong over four, if the student had

would have been 75.

Tuesday, Sept. 28, 1965, The Florida Alligator/

e ylN.
"Time: September, 1965, late afternoon. JSettli leal
1 American college town on a Saturday. .The Scene: the Inside
of an expressionless gym locker room full of empty faces and dreams.
This is a brief description of the climax of the story of the Florida-
Mississippi State football game as it appeared to anyone entering
the Gator locker room soon after the final whistle sounded Saturday.
THE GATORS were stunned. Florida had a better football team.
Florida had made more yardage rushing than the Bulldogs. Florida
had made more yardage passing than the Bulldogs. Florida had
more first downs than the Bulldogs. Florida had completed more
Florida had lost.

Only the second game and the whole season is already shot/
remarked one reporter making his way to the Gator locker room.
No, the season isn't all lost, but those year-after-year dreams
for the Big Year have suffered a terrific blow. The blow was felt
by the team, the coaches, the students and the alumni.
Now, with the outstanding personnel on the Florida team, the
Gators are faced with an uphill fight to salvage the rest of the
THESE WERE also the thoughts of the Gator players as they
tried to forget their troubles in the locker room.
The Gator locker room in the Florida gym hadn't been this quiet
in a long time. Usually players would be laughing, yelling and cussing
as the big plays that contributed to a Florida victory were rehashed.

Usually reporters and well-wishers would mingle with the players
and offer their congratulations and also pick up those quotes for the
morning paper of just how it was done.
USUALLY YOUNG admirers would be hanging on the Gators as they
entered the locker room asking for their chin straps for souvenirs.
Usually the Gator defensive coaching staff would be eager to comment
on the big Gator defensive play that broke the game wide open for
Usually Coach Ray Graves would be flashing a big grin and puffing
a cigar as he told reporters that the Gators had just beaten a good
team that would play a lot of good football the rest of the year.
The only thing that was the same Saturday was that Graves was
still puffing a cigar.
CRIES OF bring on the Cleveland Browns had4>een Issued from
the Florida locker room last year after the Gators win over Ole
Miss, but no one even mentioned Louisiana State next Saturdays 1
It wasnt that the Gator players were scared of LSU, but that the
players were so stunned by the performance of which they had just
been a part.

We just should have scored more, mumbled one Gator. We
should have scored more in the first half. We should have passed
more. But things just werent clicking.
THIS PLAYER'S thoughts will be dismissed from his own mind
very soon as the Gators prepare for their next game, but the some sometimes-too-strong
times-too-strong sometimes-too-strong UF alumni have probably also thought about Gators
performance and an attempt to sit on a one-point lead and run out
the clock.
Graves has probably thought about the headsore alumni who lost
money on Saturdays contest, too, so the Gators might flood the air
with passes against LSU.
It certainly wouldnt be a bad idea: this has been one of the few
Gator strong points since spring practice.
GRAVES HAS proven that he can produce outstanding teams, but
when a Florida coach loses the second game of a season which has
been rated tops, the alumni take a dim view.
Its at this point that the coachs remark to the team before a game
They (the alumni) are with you win or tie -- really sinks in.
A 25-cent game Coke and a good brand of liquor just arent enough
to pacify a Gator fan on a blistering September afternoon in the
stands of Florida Field. Not when the Gators lose.
