After twenty years of temporary use as
married housing facilities, Flavets One and Two
are leaving the UF campus.
It was rumored that the Flavets, which were
sold to Mid-States Engineers Inc., of Tampa,
were merely being moved around the corner to
be rented by UF students.
This was discounted yesterday when it was
learned that the buildings do not meet the
Gainesville building code standards.
According to Mr. C. Hemley of the Gaines Gainesville
ville Gainesville building department, who has been in inspecting
specting inspecting the Flavets for years, he would never
have allowed them to be sold in Gainesville at
any time.
The contract for the sale of the wooden

Campus Lighting Goes Up
Over Christmas Holidays

Over the holidays, lights were
put up on campus which will not
come down with the 12th night. New
lighting facilities brighten the field
in front of McCarty Hall, Gator
Pond, Walker Hall, Grove Hall and
Peabody Hall. *
The Alligator sought adequate
campus lighting after a coed was
attacked near the Gator Pond last
year. The November kidnaping of
this year spurred the recent action.
Blaise Picchi, campus lighting
committee chairman, Steve
Cheeseman, student body treasur treasurer
er treasurer and Mike Malaghan, secretary
of the interior, worked out a 3 point
plan with Calvin Greene, director
of the physical plant, to make the
campus safer.
The plan called for cutting down

FUF Troubles 6 Discouraging

Alligator Staff Writer
If the Free University of Florida ever had
doors, they would never have opened.
But FUF never had doors, nor was there
room at the inn: the Ramada Inn, the Holiday
Inn, the University Inn, or anywhere else in
which this off-beat university could register
its students.
Classroom space was equally hard to get.
We were so. damn honest, explained Bonnie
Greenspan, FUF trustee.
Landlords and inn managers were always
told exactly why FUF wanted to rent and were
even warned there might be opposition to the
school. Sometimes landlords did agree to rent
to FUF, and within a few days reneged.
Once FUF had two months rent that had been
paid in advance returned with the explanation,
I just cant rent to you.
Bonnie is proud of the schools plans, its
22 teachers and 18 courses. Some courses were
to be religiously oriented and taught by persons
connected with student religious centers.
Courses taught by politically left wing UF pro professors
fessors professors were to be offered. FUF also tried to
get right wingers to teach.
S.-L. (Sigsbee) Scruggs, who terms himself
an arch conservative, was asked to teach but
declined the invitation.
Bonnie herself worked with FUF from its
idea stage to its near reality. She is a tall,
slim girl, studious looking with her dark rim
glasses. She has long blond hair and wears a

Most of the buildings will be resold as lake

and installation.
The Flavets were brought to the UF campus
in 1946. They were used to house married
veterans who had just returned to college.
The frame houses were originally supposed
to remain on the campus for 10 years. It was
hoped, at the time, that they would only remain
for five years, but the temporary structures
stayed as UF housing till last August.
The greatest controversy about the Flavets
arose from the gas heaters that had been in installed

called the heaters the browless wonders be because

Residents complained that their gas bills were

tables lining the walls. The tables are filled
with literature proclaiming that the United
States should get out of Viet Nam. This image
of a radical student group was avoided when whenever
ever whenever possible in connection with FUF.
Still, Gainesville businessmen connected FUF
with those students who picket. This image
hurt FUF when, failing to rent classroom space,
it was decided to register students anyhow.
Teachers agreed to meet with students and
decided individually when the class could hold
meetings. For the registration, FUF officials
decided to try and rent the banquet room at the
Ramada Inn.
Alec Frank, manager of the Ramada Inn,
refused to rent the room to FUF because the
group was too controversial, Bonnie said.
Not so, said Frank. He said he didnt rent the
room to FUF because he didnt want people
streaming in out out through the lobby all day.
There was no other reason, he said.
He was told that we would consider ourselves
lucky if a hundred people came in during the
entire day, Bonnie said.
The other motels said they were booked.
Registration by mail, the last alternative,
was decided Upon.
By the time all the responses trickled in it
was mid-October. It was too late for the fall
term teachers agreed. Consequently FUF has
been delayed if not stopped.
The number of registrations was disappoint disappointing,

PREDICTS DEMISE . Prime Minister Harold Wilson, more
confident than ever that rebel Rhodesias days are numbered, was
due here tonight for the British Commonwealth Ministers Conference
on Rhodesia. About 19 of the 22 Commonwealth/ member nations were
to attend the conference, which opens Tuesday at the plush Federal
Palace Hotel. Fewer than 10 of them were to be represented by their
premiers or heads of state. Reports persisted that Wilson believed it
was only a matter of time before economic sanctions forced the
collapse of Premier lan Smiths regime which seized unilateral in independence
dependence independence Nov. 11.
POPE TO COMMENT . Soviet Minister Andrei M. Gromyko may
call on Pope Paul VI next month to deliver personal reply from the
Kremlin to the pontiffs call for Viet Nam talks, high Vatican sources
said today. The Vatican had no official comment on a report in the
respected Rome newspaper n Messaggero that Gromyko would be in
Rome Feb. 8 for meetings with Italian government leaders.
REDS CLAIM VICTORY ... The Soviet Union
scored its first diplomatic triumph as an inter international
national international peacemaker today when the leaders of
India and Pakistan agreed to pall back troops
from the front lines of disputed Kashmir. In a
nine-point communiqjue signed at the end of
week-long .peace talks in the Soviet central
Asian city Indian Prime Minister Lai Bahadur
Shastri and Pakistani President Mohammad
Ayub Khan also agreed to exchange prisoners
and continue efforts toward peaceful relations.
ALERT INVOKED . Nationalist Chinese ships and planes today
were ordered on full alert in the Formosa Strait, where Chinese
Communist jets shot down an unarmed" seaplane carrying three de defecting
fecting defecting seamen who minutes earlier proclaimed they were on the
road to freedom. The twin-engine HUI 6 amphibious plane also car carried
ried carried a crew of three and an unknown number of Nationalist Chinese
officials sent to the Island of Matsu to welcome the sailors.
POVERTY FUNDS WANTED . President Johnsons war on
poverty needs a minimum increase of SSOO million in the coming
year, the 1965 House manager of the legislation said Monday. Rep.
Sam Gibbons, D-Fla.. said the program probably should get $3 billion,
but he offered a $2 billion rockbottom estimate in the face of a
mounting republican attack on domestic spending. Gibbons said the
anti-poverty program could move forward this year with S 2 billion
to $2.5 billion, but anything less than that would require severe
cutbacks. Congress appropriated $1.5 billion last year.
students from Tuskegee Institute marched to
the downtown district today and picketed the

Hall The pickets, including two young whites,
carried large yellow placards and walked back

Three policemen, two of them Negroes, stood
in front of the City Hall, but there were no
officers around the courthouse. The placards
stated: We can no longer tolerate injustice.

NO COMPETITION . Florida is failing to get full value of its
construction money for higher education facilities because of a lack
of competitive bidding, a Board of Regents member said today. Henry
Kramer of Jacksonville told the board a review of bid advertising and
contract letting should be undertaken. Many firms are not bidding and
many that are have been pulling their bids out just days before con contracts

TAX OPPOSITION . State Comptroller Fred O. Dickinson an announced

against a proposed federal tax law that would, ,he said, impose addi additional

give the federal government power to collect sales taxes from out outof-state
of-state outof-state firms, in exchange for an unspecified administrative fee.
The hitch, Dickinson said, is that for the states to get back all the
money due them they must first pass a model state tax law.

A Majority Is One Person Plus The Truth"

"Good Morning"
_DR. ROBERT Hutchins Hutchins-3t
-3t Hutchins-3t is hard for anybody living outside Mississippi to have any
sympathy for the inhabitants of that backward area. Its legal
system and its social habits are a disgrace to our country. The
existence of Mississippi is the best argument for a drastic
alteration in the relations between the federal government and
the state.
Yet candor compels the admission that the historical relation relationship
ship relationship between the federal government and the states, which is not
Mississippis fault, is one of the causes of Mississippis plight.
There must be some connection between the educational system
of a community and the cultural level it achieves. There must be
some connection between the amount of money a community spends
on education and the kind of educational system it has.
No one would go so far as to say that increasing the amount
spent on education will guarantee" a higher quality of instruction.
All I am suggesting is that there must be some connection between
expenditures and results.
The nistorical relationship between the federal government and
the states has meant that education has been left to the states.
This might not have had serious practical consequences if all the
states had had equal resources, an equal number of children and
an equal interest in educating them. Americans living in rich
states forget how wide the disparities on these points are.
The official figures estimating current expenditure per child
in the public elementary and secondary schools of the country
for 1964-65 have just been published by the U. S. Department of
Health, Education and Welfare.
They show Mississippi where we all knew it would be, at the
bottom of the list. The figure for that state is $273, as compared
with $790 in New York. With all allowances for differences in
cost, and will all reservations about the casual connection between
dollars and quality, a Mississippi child must be getting an edu education
cation education far inferior to that offered his contemporary in New York
If Mississippi were to blame, all the rest of us could be quite
self-righteous about this. But Mississippi is not to blame.
On the contrary, that state spends a higher proportion of its
personal income on public education than the national average
That average is 4.74%. The percentage for Mississippi is 5.34*.
This is higher than the effort put forth by such rich states as
Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania,
Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. It is higher than
New York. It is almost twice as high as the District of Columbia
In short, Mississippi, a poor state with lots of children at the
bottom of the list when it comes to current expenditure per child
surpasses 35 states in the proportion of its personal income
devoted to public elementary and secondary schools.
The probabilities are that in a financial sense MississiDDi
is doing all it can. If the Mississippi child is to have a fair
show, the American people will have to come to his aid. Let us
hope that the Johnson educational program will reach him soon

Plans Ignored

MOSCOW (UPI) The chief of a Soviet delegation to North Viet
Nam has flatly rejected the sincerity of current U. S. quest for peace
in Viet Nam and urged the Asian communists to keep on fighting, it
was reported today.
Alexander N. Shelepin, the Kremlins chief diplomatic trouble troubleshooter,
shooter, troubleshooter, told a public meeting in the North Vietnamese capital of
Hanoi Sunday night American peace overtures were contradicted by
troop buildups in South Viet Nam and the threat of further escalation
of the war.
Shelepin, the No. 2 man in the Russian Communist Party,ignored
the current lull in U. S. bombings on North Viet Nam and told Hanoi
to stick by its guns.
Pravda, the Soviet Party newspaper, published today the full text
of Shelepins speech at Hanoi Sunday night.
The fact is that the United States, while publicizing its so-called
peace initiative, keeps on increasing the number of its armed forces
in South Viet Nam, Shelepin said.
Instead of ceasing unconditionally the bombing and other aggresive
actions against North Viet Nam, he added, the United States threa threatens
tens threatens further escalation of the war . and the intensification of air
raids, in the north.
Shelepin adopted the attitude of his North Vietnamese hosts by
ignoring the U. S. bombing lull t£at began Christmas eve and marked
the start of President Johnsons peace offensive.
The 46-year-old ex-secret police chief led a top-level delegation,
including rocket and armament experts, to Hanoi last week on a
mission reportedly to boost Soviet economic and military aid to North
Viet Nam.
In his speech Sunday evening, Shelepin expressed support for North
Viet Nams four-point program to end the war which includes com complete
plete complete withdrawal of U. S. troops from the south and adoption of the
Viet Cong political program.
The actions of the United States in Viet Nam do not prove that
it is ready to accept as a basis for a settlement the four-point pro program,
gram, program, Shelepin said.
Shelepin said his mission demonstrated Moscows unflinching
determination to continue rendering all-round assistance ... in
strengthening of the defense potential of North Viet Nam.
Support of Hanois four-point program was again repeated today
by Red China in a broadcast which attacked Johnsons peace moves
as in fact only a gesture.
The Peking Peoples Daily, official organ of the Party Central
Committee, said the stand of the Johnson administration remains

Congress Awaits LBJ
WASHINGTON (UPl)Lawmakers, worried about the war in Viet
Nam, the one against poverty and the voters back home, assembled
today for the opening of the second session of the 89th Congress.
Many members prepared for what promised to be an uphill road
by attending a special congressional service at the National Pres Presbyterian
byterian Presbyterian Church. President Johnson joined them in seeking spiritual
guidance before the opening gavels were sounded at noon.
After routine opening ceremonies both the House and Senate
planned Xo forego any real business until Johnson delivers his televised
State-of-the-Union address to a joint session at 9 p.m. Wednesday.
The big question was what Johnson would say about prospects for
peaceor a hotter war--in Viet Nam and what sort of balance he
proposed to strike between spending at home and abroad.
But the political jockeying on Capitol Hill had already begun. Out Outnumbered
numbered Outnumbered Republicans, who failed to dent Johnsons great society
legislative program in the 89ths historic first session, made guns
or butter their battle cry for the second.
Senate GOP Leader Everett M. Dirksen fixed his economy sights
especially on the homefront antipoverty war. He said such domestic
welfare programs just getting cranked up should be cut back backput
put backput on icemaybe cut out entirely in light of soaring costs of the
Viet Nam fighting.
Democratic leaders rallied their forces against crippling appro appropriations
priations appropriations cuts in home domestic front programs. But they concurred
with Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfields judgement that little
new domestic legislation would be pushed to enactment.
Pointing to the mass of health, education and economic legislation
enacted on Johnsons recommendation last year, Mansfield has called
on committee chairmen to run checks on how all the new programs are

Strike Drags on;
Hardships Increase

NEW YORK (UPI) Mayor John
V. Lindsay kept the pressure on
negotiators Monday in a personal
attempt to end a subway-bus strike
which has defied solution for 10
days; Sullen millions battled again"
to get to work.
But getting to work was im impossible

ers, slumdwellers, miles removed fyom their
jobs. And for them, the New York
Commerce and Industry Associa Association
tion Association said, the strike had imposed
the greatest hardship since the
Great Depression of the 19305.
The strike almost seemed to
have acquired a life of its own,
independent of the will of the
principal. The days forthcoming
events could lead to a stiffening
of positions, making settlement
more remote. For example:
- The struck Transit Authority
(TA) was scheduled to ask for a
$3,220,000fine plus daily fines of
$322,000 against the striking un unions
ions unions a step which could only
intensify union intransigence.
- The Transport Workers Union
(TWU) called a noon EST rally
outside City Hall and hoped union
men from throughout the city would
lend their support.
- The city, bracing for a new
onslaught of traffic, sought court
permission to increase fines for
illegal parking from sls to $35
although this would make getting
to work even more difficult. The
city opened up to parking the brown
lawns of Central Park.
With the strikes cost to the
public put at SSOO million or more
a rising an estimated SIOO
million every day -- Lindsay a awoke
woke awoke at 5:10 a.m. Sunday after
napping on couch in City Hall and
found negotiators still far apart.
Finally at nightfall he dispatch dispatched

While students headed for
classes Monday morning, UF
members of the SGER (Student
Group for Equal Rights) took up
pqsts outside Macs Waffle Shop.
The group is joining local CORE
and NAACP chapters in a protest
against alleged discriminatory
practices at the local waffle shop.
On Dec. 24 at 3 a.m. four Negro
men entered Macs Waffle Shop
for coffee. According to CORE,
a few minutes after the Negroes
were served, the lights were turned
off and a group of white men at attacked
tacked attacked the Negroes.
The men were beaten and scalded
with hot water, said CORE, and
one of the men received a second
degree burn.
SGER representatives say the
group is joining local civil rights
groups to protest the lack of action
on this and other discriminatory
actions in the past.
Part of their pxoie&t includes
marching in the picket line, which
has demonstrated outside the Waf Waffle

Drajt Quarter?
As winter drags on, Florida men are bundling up against more than
one type of draft. Selective Service has announced plans to begin
drafting the lower 25 per cent of all male college students.
The question Should students be drafted out of college? was asked
to the UF student-on-the-street and here are a few answers. t
/RENE LENGEN (2UC): No, a college man taken SPI
out of school during his most important period of- :
life may change his whole future. The selective B
service should clarify their criteria for drafting XKjp
a college man. It seems to change every week.
JACK RYALS (2UC): No, except in the case of i\
total war where everyone would be needed. College
men will be valuable to the country after they
graduate. T
jf'WWfjM CHARLES LASHER (3AS): No, there are many
people eligible for the draft that could be taken
without digging into the college ranks.
~ FJWO DONNA CARLSON (1UC): Yes, if they cannot
k ceep up with the minimum requirements.
JOHN SHOUP (2UC): For some reason college
men have closer tabs kept-ert them whlch t 0 me is

CARLSON least, since their records arent as frequently re reviewed.

ED BALAZ (2UC): No, unless a student has

Quality Os Entering
UF Freshmen Improving

Ten years ago the freshman
class at the UF included 47 per
cent of the students who were in the
top fifth of high school seniors in
the state.
In 1965, 66 per cent of the fresh freshman
man freshman class were rated in the top
level of all seniors throughout
This increase in quality is ap apparent
parent apparent when student grades ( are
compared. Todays students are
making more As and Bs than Ds
and Es.
Dr. John V. McQuitty, UF exa examiner,
miner, examiner, notes that students admitted
to state universities today are
highly capable.
In 1950, entering UF freshmen
had a median score on the 12th
grade test of 336, only 36 points
above todays minimum require requirement,
ment, requirement, McQuitty explained.
Admission to state universities
demands a minimum score of 300
of a possible 495 points on the
Florida 12th grade tests and a C
average in high school.
The median score on the test
by last falls entering freshman
class was 408, said McQuitty.
Included among the Universitys
freshman class last deptember
were 32 per cent of the high school
seniors who rated in the second
fifth of all seniors in Florida.
Twenty-seven per cent of the
freshman class ranked in the se second
cond second fifth in 1955 and five years
later, the freshman class included
30 per cent of these students.
McQuitty pointed out that less
than two per cent of this years
freshman class ranked below the
fourth quintile. In 1955, the fresh freshman
man freshman included 16 per cent of stu students
dents students ranked below that point.
On the national level, McQuitty
reports that 86 per cent of this
years freshman class ranked
above the national mean on the
School and College Ability Test. In
1955 only 41 per cent ranked above
the national mean.
The quality of college students
in Floridas state universities has
vastly improved, McQuitty noted.
We still have a wide distribution
of grades, but todays students are

making more As and Bs than Ds
and Es, he said.
Over the last two years, the
grade distribution was as follows:
As, 10-12 per cent; Bs, 20-30
per cent; Cs, 45-47 per cent;
Ds, 15-18 per cent and Es, 4-5
per cent.
About 72,190 high school seniors
took the 12th grade test last year.

On The

Watching the Kentucky Wildcats play Saturday, one found it
hard to believe that they were the nations second best team.
True, they have speed and shooting ability. But, Coach Adolph
Rupps charges certainly arent comparable to the UCLA team
which won the national championship a year ago or the Cincinnati
superteams of a few years back.
Louie Dampier is no Gail Goodrich and Thad Jaracz is no Keith
Erickson. Both Wildcat youngsters are fine players, but neither is
a superstar.
Os course, Kentucky may have had a sub-par game Saturday.
Rupp said as much in his post-game commentary. Pat Riley, the
Cats leading scorer before Saturday, had his worst day of the
year, scoring only one point, a fact which seems to substantiate
the Kentucky coach.
Comparing the Wildcats to other teams around the country will
yield a better insight as to how good they are.
Duke, presently No. 1, has been rolling up impressive scores
against some top flight opposition. The Blue Devils have already
beaten Michigan and UCLA, No. 1 and 2 a year ago, and some
tough ACC foes including North Carolina.
Duke has the countrys best guard in Bob Verga and some fine
young talent up front which enables it to roll up big scores.
Certainly the Blue Devils have a better balance between height
and speed than Kentucky.

St. Josephs, ranked No. 1 by Sports Illustrated and others
when the season began, bears a striking similarity to Kentucky.
The Hawks also have a short (6-4) center in Cliff Anderson.
Anderson outrebounds men much taller than himself and scores
against them from close in. Jaracz is startlingly similar.
