Scoff Kelly Denied
Spot In HC Parade

been denied a seat in the UF Home Homecoming
coming Homecoming Parade.
Kelly will be in Gainesville to

out of the annual parade.
Thats what Dennis Driscoll,
president of the Professional Bus Business

Wilson Atkinson, general
manager of homecoming, said
Kelly was denied a convertible ride
because he doesnt presently hold
a state office.
Our past policy has been to
only have persons in the parade
that are presently state office hold holders,
ers, holders, Atkinson said. We didnt
feel this request warranted a
change in that policy. It would just
create too many problems.

Secretary of State Tom Adams yesterday again took
issue with the red tape and over-controls of the
State Budget Commission and proposed highauton highautonomy
omy highautonomy in fiscal matters for the universities and the
Board of Regents.
Adams called on the Budget Commission to loosen
tight controls on minute spending and redefine
the budgetary role to a sound and workable plan
The former UF law student proposed limiting the
budget commission to setting broad spending poli policies
cies policies while the Board of Regents should be allowed
to approve line-item details of the budget.
He proposed a new program to calculate faculty
and administrative salaries so we will be able to
compete with other institutions for the finest educa educational
tional educational talent available.
Adams program calls for a cost evaluation that
would classify students on the basis of their expenses
to a university. A medical student costs more to
educate than a law student. We should account for
this, said Adams.
This will assure that sufficient funds are available
to the universities and eliminate political jockeying
between the various institutions, Adams said.
Adams said the new plan will inject cost control
in educational financing. This will put the respon responsibility
sibility responsibility for wise and careful expenditures of funds
directly on the presidents themselves, he said.
For those controls of the commission that are
statutory, Adams asked for an examination of the
law to determine how the budget commission could
legally give more spending freedom to the uni universities.
We on the State Cabinet need to redefine our
budgetary role so a workable plan may be submitted
to the next session of the Legislature, said Adams.
Adams said the Budget Commission should take the
lead in its own re-evaluation. Mine is an effort to
objectively analyze a program of which I am a part,
and which I realize could be better designed.
The new role of the Regents will create a greater
need for comprehensive pre-audits and post-audits
of education spending, he said.
I think that the Budget Commission should be
granted broad authority in undertaking and evaluating
these audits he said.

DEMANDS VOICE . West Germany has given a firm warning that
it will defy any international agreements which fail to give Germany
a voice in nuclear affairs. The decision arose from British pressure
on the United States to reconsider its adoption of a multi-lateral
nuclear force which allows German participation. The force aroused
concern of the spread of nuclear weapons from Russia. Germany
wants the voice to be in a position to bargain with Russia on German
reunification. But British officials want to seek a cooling off of con conflicts
flicts conflicts with the Soviet Union. x
TROOPS CLOSE IN . The war's biggest
assault force of U. S. and Vietnamese troops
met the first stiff Viet Cong resistence Mon Monday
day Monday night in its massive drive to spring a
death trap on up to five Communist battalions.
In the two days of action so far, 70 Communists
have been reported killed as the large force
of more than 10,000 troops encircled the Soui
La Tinh Valley.
PURGE CONTINUES . Armed Indonesian Communists were re reported
ported reported gathering in several places on the island of Sumatra Monday
as government troops continued their efforts to round up elements
responsible for the attempted coup of Sukarnos government. As anti anticommunist
communist anticommunist sentiment continued to rise, Sukarno was reported ready
to endorse the armys action against the leftists, once the chief source
of Sukarnos political strength.
CLOTURE FAILS . Forces for the administrations bill to repeal
section 14b of the Taft-Hartley law Monday failed in an effort to shut
off a Dirksen-led filibuster against the bill. Rejection of the cloture
was expected, but the size of the vote was a blow to the Administra Administration's
tion's Administration's hopes for action this session. The vote 47 to 45 was 17
votes short of the two-thirds margin needed to invoke cloture.
SL4CS TO MEET . The Southern Asso Association
ciation Association of Colleges and Schools will meet in
Richmond November 28 to decide if it will
continue to accredit North Carolina colleges
and universities. The state's school accredi accreditation
tation accreditation is being contested after the state passed
the Speaker Ban law in 1963 which sought to
bar Communist speakers from state-supported
campuses. The charge: political meddling
WALLACE AWAITS FATE . The political future of Alabama
Gov. George Wallace is now in the hands of the state supreme court.
After the state senate failed to muster enough votes to invoke cloture
on a bill to allow Wallace to run again for reelection, supporters of
the bill turned to the courts for aid. The petition before the court
would lower the number of votes required to invoke cloture in the
Senate, allowing a simple majority vote to rule.
TIMES STRIKE SETTLED . All of New Yorks major dailies
were back in circulation Monday for the first time since the American
Newspaper Guild struck the New York Times 25 days ago. By a large
vote the Guild Sunday accepted a new contract under terms preposed
by Mayor Robert Wagner. The strike against the Times involved
automotion, union jurisdiction, pensions and a union shop. Money was
not an issue.
OFFERS SUPPORT . Provided enough puonc support exists
Gov. Haydon Burns said that he will support the change to daylight
sawings time. The proposal was recently put forth by Floridas
Sen. George Smathers, who said it would help tourism. If the points
were convincing in its favor. 1 might take an active part in pushing
it, Burns said. Smathers maintained that every form of recreation,
from fishing to water skiing, would benefit by the extra hour.
NEGOTIATIONS COMPLICATED . Im-
Citient Cuban refugees and their families in
e United States are threatening U. S.-Cuban
talks on allowing disgruntled Cubans to im immigrate
migrate immigrate to the states. Several small boats
have already violated the U. S government
request for an orderly exodus of the refugees.
In one such instance a Cuban coast guard was
shot and killed by an exile mercenary Fri Friday

This letter is my troubled reaction and complaint to John Jenkins
column in Friday's Alligator.
Before I go any further, let me exonerate myself from the title of
Freedom Party nut. commie dupe, or leftist activist. I feel and hope
the views I support are those of the majority of students on campus.
Mr. Jenkins, Freedom Party, etc. and its members are not as
bad as you make them out to be. Some may be a little shabby and not
wear "hangar loops. but whatever their reasons, they dont force
you to join them. Its easy to look down on differing behavior and
appearanceerpecially if theyre in the out group.
Also Mr. Jenkins, it was rather unkind and assuming of you to
label the Freedom Party people, etc. as self-gratifying individuals
who view us as ignorant clods and themselves as omniscients, and
anyone in authority as a Hitler. I too agree that they hold some opinions
which are contrary to those that many of us hold. 1 also shudder
to have them shoulder the responsibilities of the action that they
ask for. BUT MR. JENKINS, Id hate to see YOU in power without
a constitution and a bill of rights to protect US.
That these people have a right to rave, picket, print, and hold
demonstrations makes me feel good. That their ideas may be wrong
or noxious to our ear is of little importance. The belief of a rel relatively
atively relatively open forum of ideas is essential to our way of life.
I ask. Mr. Jenkins, Hitler and Stalin burned books, imprisoned
professors and eliminated demonstrations--WHAT WOULD YOU DO??
Ed Matz, ILW
I would like to be among the first to congratulate Mr. Jenkins for
the content otf his column. It said what has long needed to be said,
and I say thanks for that. It was time for the Freedom Party and
its members to be j>ut in their place.
I am waiting for Mr. Jenkins next effort. 1 hope it is as current
and good as his first. do,,

jit is common knowledge mat Gov.Haydonurns
visited our campus last week. It is also gen generally
erally generally known that his purpose for coming tp the
University of Florida was to give his views con concerning
cerning concerning the controversial budget problem.
The Governor of our state felt this situation was
so serious that he made a special trip here to, in
his words, bring it out in the open. His effort,
whether successful or not, was genuine. And the
students of the University of Florida, if for no other
reason than respect for his office, should have wel welcomed
comed welcomed him in an atmosphere of open-mindedness.
However, there are some factions on this campus
who feel it is their sworn duty to dissent on every everything
thing everything from Viet Nam to Mother Love. I am speaking
of the Freedom Party pickets who, ia their beards
and blue jeans, marched up and down in front of the
Health Center, condemning the presence of our
This type of action is hardly conducive to con constructive
structive constructive relations between the University study body
and our legislators in Tallahassee. These so called
free thinkers, who continually extoll the virtues
of free speech and repeatedly cry for an unbiased
view of controversial speakers, should start prac practicing
ticing practicing what they preach.
How can one preach freedom of speech and then
turn around and demonstrate against it. It is my
contention that Freedom Party is so wrapped up in
its own selfish, psuedo-ideologies that it fails to be
able to separate one from the other.
If Freedom Party really had the best interests of
the students at heart, it would not have tried to
create unnecessary animosity between the Governor
and the University of Florida.
The budget problem is a serious one, and rightfully
or not, Governor Burns has been blamed for its
existence. Too often, in the lack of complete infor information,
mation, information, a group is swayed to a belief out of bitter
emotion rather than factual justification. Such was
the case in the budget situation.
Whether most people know it or not. it is NOT
within the powei of the Governor to do away with
the Budget Commission controls on university ex expenditures.
Dr. Reitz has proposed that the gubernatorially gubernatoriallyappointed
appointed gubernatoriallyappointed Board of Regents take full control of the
S6B-million dallars in university funds. This means
that after a budget has been agreed to by the legis legislature
lature legislature and the cabinet, the elected officials of the
state will have no further control over 68 million
dollars of the taxpayers money.
Further. Dr. Reitz threatened to resign if his
proposal wasnt accepted. (I wont play if I cant
be captain.) It is rumored that Chester Ferguson,
chairman of the Board of Regents, tentatively ac accepted
cepted accepted Dr. Reitz resignation.
Dr. Reitz, who has threatened resignation on
several occasions, said he has not resigned (yet').
Our president has a valid complaint. However, I
would question his methods of attempting to rectify
the situation. Threatening to resign is not going to
help the .UF get a better budget. The only way to
get some sort of settlement is through compromise
and calm tempers.
The legislature has the power to settle the budget
problem. And those who are genuinely concerned
should write to their state legislators and voice their
opinion, rather than go stomping up and down with
picket signs or resignation forms.

attempted sincerely by persons with a high regard for
professional journalism. Unfortunately, The Alli Alligators
gators Alligators coverage of Gov. Burns speech to campus
leaders a few days ago was neither objective nor
fair. As an example of professional journalism it
was a miserable failure.
Admittedly this was a controversial meeting, but
many of us who attended were stunned by The
Alligators reporting of it the following day. Frankly,
you got a little carried away with yourselves.
For instance: Your story said student leaders
on the state were removed to make room for
Burns entourage or Board of Regents members.
Aw, come on now! That sounds like the meanies
moved in and ran out all the good guys. Even worse,
it was actually incorrect.
The truth is far more simple. The whole affair
was arranged on about twenty-four hours notice (by
He did it again! Once more Jim Fine with his asinine logic is trying
to confuse the issue.
In the first place, Mr. Fine, our letters were not exactly equal, only
similar because we who replied to you all happened to be stimulated
by the same cause, your letter.
Secondly, you mention, A freedom which is producing a conformity
of thought as evidenced by the above-mentioned letters. What about
those who took sides with you and whose letters related to yours to
the same degree that ours did. What do you mean by conformity when
I, myself, am not conforming to your way of thinking. You speak of
our lack of definition of freedom and you speak of conformity, none nonetheless,
theless, nonetheless, you never define conformity but instead speak vaguely about it.
Thirdly, you have twisted the subject around to give it the same
emotional tone that accompanied the Richer petition earlier this year.
In The ALLIGATORof March 26, 1965, I expressed my views about
the degrading way in which his supporters were using the struggle
for civil rights in Selma to obtain signatures for Mr. Richer. Once
more the same tactics have been used, for you only try to confuse the
issue by introducing racial discrimination, a completely unrelated
subject never referred to in your first letter. My views on Viet Nam
and my views on racial problems are not related to each other because
these are two distinctly different issues. Again you bring together
unrelated issues when you compare those fighting for equality with
the spoiled brats who stop trains.
Fourthly, I am not opposed at all to recognizing the legitimate
aspirations of emerging nations; but, I am opposed to the way aspir aspirations
ations aspirations are often forces upon the people of these nations so that they
become mere instruments of a select few. Apparently you like many
others of your opinion would advocate free elections for the people
of South Viet Nam to choose their own form of government. But how
can anyone be so blind and naive as to believe that elections held in
villages terrorized by Communist Viet Cong could ever be FREE?
Fifthly, in your last paragraph, you are not speaking of freedom,
you are pleading for a change from a line that you believe to be dog dogmatic
matic dogmatic to your own dogmatic line.
Finally, Mr. Fine, I think that by confusing the issues and by playing
with the emotions (involving sympathies with the racial problems), you
are consciously trying to control the attitudes of the students on the Viet
Nam issue. Any control whether by a person, ideology, or party includes
an inherent lack of freedom.

Your interviews after the meeting were no better,
perhaps worse from the ethical standpoint. For
example, you selected only the portions of Rep.
Turlingtons comments that suited your theme, and
omitted the rest. True, Turlington did say that some
of the cabinet members had strongly opposed granting
financial autonomy to the Universities, and had quietly
influenced the defeat of corrective legislation. But
why did you ignore his next remark, that Gov. Burns,
a relative newcomer to the cabinet, was not one of

ALLIGATOR COLUMNIST HHW
Qxford, Miss., was described as a cow town bye / itor
reporter who journeyed there last weekend to see history made
when the Florida football team beat the Ole Miss Rebels, 17-0.
But this cow town has been the scene of a lot more history than
the Rebels first Homecoming loss.
IT WAS ln this small southern village that William Faulkner lived
and wrote into history his description of the traditional southern
atmosphere and the traditional southern aristocracy and southern
Negro which are both becoming a thing of the past.
It was in this cow town that James Meredith made his history
making stand against segregation.
Meredith was a Negro. He was arrogant and bitter-tongued in his
strides to improve the Negros status ln the deep South, and he was
met with arrogant and bitter-tongued opponents to his efforts. This
was the story of Mississippi.
THE STORY of the University of Florida Is a different one. Here a
calm soft-spoken and somewhat humble Fred McMillion could also
make history in the Negros move for higher status in the South. But
this isnt whats on his mind, and he reports no opposition to his
efforts to become a member of the Florida basketball team.
If McMillion makes the team, he will be the first Negro to play ln
the Southeastern Conference.
I JUST want to play basketball and thats it, reports the Gator
junior. There has been no pressure on me one way or another.
I get along with the other players just fine. Theyre all very nice,
and when they play theyre as business-like as can be.
The UF basketball team hasnt officially started practice, but the
players have been working out on their own, and McMillion has been
working with them.
I TALKED to Coach (Norm) Sloan about coming out for the team,
and he was very nice. He said the players were working some on their
own, and I could join them.
If I make it, I know it will be on my own. And If I dont make it,
1 know it will be because I lack the ability. I think Coach Sloan will
McMillion admits that hes finding Floridas brand of basketball a
little rougher than junior college, but hopes he will be able to catch
on to it in time.
The 6-foot-5 basketball player graduated from Rosenwald Junior
College ln Panama City and was also sports editor of the junior
college paper. He played center on the basketball team, and averaged
12.5 points per game.
HOWEVER, THIS doesnt qualify him for Gator basketball. There
are plenty of other students at Florida who played for high school and
junior college tejms and didnt make it at Florida.
McMillion wouldnt be the first non*>scholarship athlete to try t
make a Florida athletic team and fall.
But whether McMillion earns the honor of wearing an Orange and
Blue basketball uniform this year or not, the UF can at least say he
had a fair chance.
History, at least here atUF, is being made in a different atmosphere
than that which hovers over the peaceful streets of a cow town.

This double review has meant
that Florida universities are
delayed even six or eight months
in granting contracts to faculty, as
compared to other states, thus
hindering their ability to recruit
high caliber faculty members.
Floridas universities must
compete for faculty in a national
market place and for research
grants on a nation-wide basis,
the AAUP said.

1 Os Budget Restrictions 1
The UF AAUP will seek an investigation by
the leading university accrediting agency of the
tight restrictions imposed in Florida on spending
of budget monies by state schools.
The UF chapter voted to make the request of
the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools
The association will be asked to study the
situation in Florida with a view to advising state
political officers of the appropriate limits of
their functions in respect to the well established
standards of this and other accrediting agencies
across the United States.
The resolution was written in advance of a talk
by Gov. Haydon Burns to faculty and student
leaders, and passed afterwards.
Burns came to Gainesville hopeful of putting
down the furor of the past few days surrounding
the dilemma of restrictions on university fi finances

by university officials.
Since Florida alone has this type
of tight control in the face of
reforms in every other state
what are the consquences for high higher

First, the line item approval
(or disapproval) by the Budget

with state budget controls on the universi university
As who, similarly encumbered,
It is our hunch that Gov. Burns not
only knows this but regrets it. The accept accepted
ed accepted administrative practice is to give an
institution a budget and let it operate.
Florida law permits no such thing.
The State Cabinet, which already has
too much to do and do it well, is required
to keep a constant internal audit of univer university
sity university expenditures.
A new professor cannot be hired or an
old one given a salary increase above a
low, inadequate sum without executive
approval outside the university system.
The Cabinet can, as it did the other day,
lop off pay raises designed to keep an ac acceptable
ceptable acceptable faculty together.
This leads not to excellence in Florida
education, which is peculiarly cursed with
budget control, but to political meddling
and to inferiority.
The state has already lo6t one universi university

I The Incomplete Lecture ]
A distinguished visiting lecturer
atood tall behind a lectern at the
University of Florida last week and
delivered a talk on political theory
right out of a textbook.
The lecturer was Governor Hay Haydon
don Haydon Burns.
He came to the campus to assuage
anguished protests of political inter interference
ference interference in University affairs of
meddling in salary scales and in hir hiring
ing hiring practices, of pell-mell educational
appointments which flouted legal
procedures, of edicts on architectual
assignments and insurance agents.
Such events have so alienated Uni University
versity University President J. Wayne Reitx
that Reitz appears to be on the way
out whether voluntarily or not,
one can merely speculate.
Student government rallied behind
Reitz. The Faculty Senate rallied be behind
hind behind Reitz. The American Associa Association
tion Association of University Professors rallied
behind Reitz. The Gainesville City
Commission rallied behind Reitz.
So the august political figure paid
a visit to campus Thursday to tell
everyone why they art wrong.
In painful detail, as if lifted bodily
from a sophomore textbook. Gover Governor
nor Governor Bums traced the path of the
educational dollar. He cited figures
on a mighty scale. He attributed the
unhappy tangled web of University

immense political muscle his way. I

the nine-man Board of Regents. Even I
the University Chancellor is a crea-1

University chaos, but hs also has the I
power to right the wrong. He could!
do it by the simple expedient of put-1

of Regents and listening less to the I
bureaucratic coterie which cocoons I

his political future. 1
