Lt. Ed Spinaio, one of the four Viet Nam veterans being honored
by UF over the past weekend, tells a packed house in University
Auditorium that the goal is to win the war in Viet Nam.
Four Appreciation Vets
Ask For War Support
Four Viet Nam veterans stood before UF students last night and
asked their support for the war.
The soldiers, all recently returned from Viet Nam, have been guests
of UF over the weekend and spoke before a rally in the University
Auditorium last night which was attended by a near-full house.
Before they left, they received 100 pints of blood taken from the
arms of fraternity men.
Lt. Ed Spinaio, who gave an emotion-packed talk before the crowd,
presented the student body with a Viet Cong flag he captured. The
red and yellow flag was captured by Spinaio during a battle in which
he won the Bronze Star. He brought it to the university and showed
no intentions of parting with it.
For the reception you, at the University, have given me, I would
like to present this flag, Spinaio said.
The four soldiers took with them plaques from Florida Blue Key

UF academic freedom is it areality?Most Northern
university policies seem to be keeping pace with today's

of academic freedom?
The days are past when UF professors could find a
policeman at their classroom door, ready to escort
them to Charley Johns motel-room hearings on
communism and homosexuality. But is the UF going fast
enough in its liberalization?

The conditions of Zabeehs departure
stapled a string of question marks to the

The Iron Curtain
The picture we get from Washington portrays our government
earnestly, even frantically, pursuing all avenues to peace and
finding them blocked by sullen and derisive Orientals.
How can we make peace, we say, if we can find nobody to make
it with? Since we cant make peace, we must make war.
The first question is, how much war do we have to make? A
leading diplomatic expert, George Kennan, has joined a military
authority, Gen. James Gavin, in suggesting that we stay where
we are and simmer down. Their theory is that if we hang on
without doing anybody very much damage somebody will eventually
come forward from the other side and offer to settle.
This proposal is better than burning up Vietnam, North and
South, in the name of the freedom and independence of the South.
But it leads to the second question, why hang on?
Surrender is a dreadful word. Both Gen. Gavin and Gen.
Maxwell Taylor are revolted by it. What is the matter with
If we have made a mistake, if we have no right to be where we
are, if we are doing enormous harm to ourselves as well as
others, why should we not admit the mistake and correct it?
This is something we could do all by ourselves.
It is now officially admitted that we have made a mistake.
No other interpretation can be placed on the peace campaign
of the administration. To put the matter on no higher ground,
we have decided we cant win.
Nobody has ever succeeded in discovering any basis for our
presence in Vietnam except our own decision to go there: no
treaty or international convention of any sort authorizes the
United States to blow up some-of the South Vietnamese in order
to maintain in power those who could not have achieved power
without us. In attacking North Vietnam we violated our solemn
obligations under the charter of the United Nations.
The Geneva Accords of 1954 did not contemplate two independent

tions elections to be held in* 1956. We prevented those electiions. We
created that fiction that South Vietnam is an independent state
that has called on us to protect it against aggression.
So why not withdraw? The North Vietnamese know as well as
we do that we cant win. They are equally aware that there is
no moral or legal excuse for our presence. Why should they talk
The reason we do not withdraw from a hopeless and guilt guiltridden
ridden guiltridden adventure is that we have been persuaded by almost half
a century of propaganda that wherever communism raises its
ugly head it is our duty to chop it off. We cannot allow Ho Chi
Minh to triumph because he is a Communist. We cannot leave
Southeast Asia open to Communist China.
The example of Yugoslavia suggests that we should be building
up Ho Chi Minh against China. Pacem in Terris, the last encyclical
of Pope John XXII, warns us not to let our hatred of an ideology
lead us into a mistaken estimate of of those who
profess it. The hypothetical possibility of a distant danger does
not justify a present crime.

three-part series by Emily S. MacLachlan on
The Viet Nam Debate. Mrs. MacLachlan in instructs
structs instructs in freshman CSS and also teaches the
sociology course, American Social Problems.)
Speaking before a sorority group the other night,
Professor Frederick Hartmann upheld vigorously
the right of faculty and students to debate an issue
of vital interest to the country such as the Viet Nam
That such a debate might encourage the enemy is
unfortunate, he said, but irrelevant to the more
important issues of academic freedom and of the
historical need to discuss policies thoroughly before
they are put into action. If Congress had devoted
adequate debate to Viet Nam two years ago, before
we escalated, or even a year ago, we would not find
ourselves in our present dilemma.
The present debate going on in every university
and college is an attempt to substitute for the debate
that should have occurred long ago in Congress.
However, it is never too late to remedy mistakes,
especially for a country as powerful as the United
As Mr. George Kennan commented before the TV
cameras at Senator Fulbrights hearing the other
day: Should the U. S. gradually withdraw from
Viet Nam in the next few months, our actions might
cause a six-months wonder for the world but would
soon be forgotten in the rapid pace of todays inter international
national international developments.
Like so many others, Mr. Kennan, whose opinion
carries great weight among foreign policy experts,
thinks we are fighting an unnecessary war and one
that is causing damage to our prestige in world
Another highly respected witness before the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee was Lt. General James
M. Gavin who has also opposed our escalation. He
has opposed on grounds of military strategy and says
we have been trapped into each escalation at the will
of the enemy, like fish rising to the bait.
Furthermore, if it is really China we are fighting
(a favorite excuse we make to continue), we will
fight a land war in Asia at our peril and if we
should be so foolish we are fighting it in the wrong
General Gavin is the author of the sky-cavalry
plan now being used in Viet Nam, an idea strongly
opposed by the Chiefs of Staff when he first proposed
Gavin believes we are heavily overcommitted in
one small country. New fronts could be opened against
us in Laos, Thailand or Korea. He agrees with Ken Kennan
nan Kennan that Europe and Latin America are of vastly
greater vital interest to us than Southeast Asia. He
does not subscribe to the domino theory that if one
country goes communist a lot of others will do the
= : ;
There is a whole complex of unique factors in each
country. The domino theory is made to order to
propagandize simple minds. It is a theory very
useful to the handful of men who are rilnning this very
messy little war.
It is not the prestige of the U. S. that is at stake
so much as it is the prestige of Mr. McNamara,
Mr. Rusk and President Johnson whose egos are
dangling way out on the end of a very shaky limb.
One can only admire the courage of men like
Senator Fulbright, General Gavin and Mr. Kennan
who do not hesitate to take an unpopular stand and
express their true convictions even when they in involve
volve involve admitting that the U. S. has made some grave
It is Senator Fulbrights conviction that we have
been unduly frightened by Chinas propaganda, laid
on heavily to spur her own people to greater efforts
and self sacrifice in order to industrialize the
country. Furthermore, he points out that Chinas
paranoid fears of the U. S. are matched only by our
paranoid fears of China, all too reminiscent of the
fears that Russia and the United States were pro proclaiming
claiming proclaiming about one another during the days of Stalin.
When Fulbright commented on a recent news map
of Asia showing the ring of military bases with
which we have China hemmed in, Gavin agreed with
him that it is we who seem to be threatening China
and not the reverse. No wonder she distrusts us
and talks in big, belligerent words.
Both agriculturally and industrially she is a very
weak country, beset with tremendous internal prob problems,
lems, problems, whereas we are immensely wealthy and
powerful with sixty per cent of the worlds wealth
and most of the worlds military might. Surely we
can defend our own shores without jumping on weak,
little poverty-stricken countries like Viet Nam.
The whole world is making jokes and cartoons
about us as historys greatest bully. But it isnt so
funny to the Vietnamese or the thousands of American
families whose sons and fathers are having to endure
terrible fighting conditions never before encountered
While our casualties have been light so far, the
morale of our country is hurting badly and the whole
Asian and African worlds are storing up grudges
against us as the new white colonialists.
The Campaign Story
Cheeseman: a loser,
but not downhearted
(EDITORS NOTE: Mike Malaghan, former Sec Secretary
retary Secretary of the Interior and director of the recent
elections, is leaving Student Government to join The
Alligator staff. Today Malaghan begins a five-part
series, telling the inside story of all five parties
why they won, how they lost and how they ran.)
By MIKE MALAGHAN
pick up writer
'l would rather lose an election than my self selfrespect.
Steve Cheeseman went on to explain that, while
he personally lost a bid for the top executive post
a student can attain, his party was a winner.
Why did Steve Cheeseman. an obvious and qualified
candidate, lose this election? The answer is no
secret; it was Ernie Litz. There is more to it than
Thirteen months ago the SAEs backed Cheeseman
for the Treasurers spot. An accord was reached
at that time. The SAEs would back Cheeseman if he
agreed not to run against SAE Buddy Jacobs. It was
also agreed that, if Jacobs didnt run, the SAEs and
the fraternities which have won five of the last six
elections would back Cheeseman.
Last fall Charley Edwards, senior member of
SAEs in Florida Blue Key, talked to Cheeseman and
sought to reconfirm Cheesemans pledge. Steve
countered with a request of his affirmation of the
SAEs promise -- backing from the group if
Jacobs didnt run.
Edwards couldnt guarantee that. And the race
Although Cheeseman didnt definitely decide to
run until finals, there was never any real doubt
that he would.
Cheeseman had built solid groups of dedicated
and proven independents during his years as Honor
Court clerk and treasurer. He had developed a
strong organization in the dorms, especially among
Cheeseman had come to Florida to be president
of the student body.
Drew Haslett, Cheesemans closest political ally,
began in new earnest to form a coalition for Steve.
Old pro Steve Friedman was added to the group in
early December to help weave a new party.
It was obvious by this time that most Progress
houses would back Jacobs if he made his law grades
and wanted to run. So Cheeseman inherited the bulk
of Fred Lanes Action fraternities. This included
Mike Colodny, a Pi Lamb and seasoned campaigner.
Before Winter classes began Mike Hollingsworth
broke with the SAEs and joined the Cheeseman camp.
Jacobs was definitely in the race. The time for
strategy planning was now, during registration.
The game plan of the Cheeseman organization was
simple, a holding action. Cheeseman was the name
candidate and held a tremendous edge over any
It was decided to be mildly positive. Take no
risks. The leading candidate in a race of this type
has to lose some votes, so Steves followers
concentrated on making some be few.
Three weeks before the election on qualifications
day Cheesefnan appeared to be a solid winner. The
same day a former Alligator editor qualified for the
office of president. Everybody thought it was very
Cheesemans confident organizers first viewed
Litz with no concern, later they saw him taking more
votes from Jacobs and, too late, as a threat to their

Up to the week before the election the Cheeseman
camp was ever-confident of victory. True Jacobs
was gaining support. But they had expected this.
They had been caught by surprise by the Jacobs
moves on checkoffs and banners, but they were still
comfortably in the lead.
True, Litz was getting more votes than at first
appeared, but he was hurting Jacobs even more
Then Black Thursday!
The Thursday before the election Tommy Back Backmeyer,
meyer, Backmeyer, FIJI, approached Hollingsworth and Freed Freedman.
man. Freedman. Jacobs wasnt doing as well as anticipated
at that point and Backmeyer want to be with a winner.
He jumped the house from under party chairman
Bill Sullivan, his fraternity brother.
This move also put Jim Crabtree, another Blue
Key FIJI, in Decision Party. So Cheesemans group
now had all the so-called bad guys. Cheeseman
was informed of the move only after it was too late
to stop it.
At the same time Cheeseman was suffering from
strep-throat. He arrived at the presidential debate
in the Campus Club 20 minutes late that night.
This was his poorest performance at any of the
debates. He looked listless and ill. He was.
That same night Decision Party found out The
Alligator was endorsing Litz, and to top that off
would favor Jacobs over the Cheese.
Late that evening or early in the morning, the
Phi Gams had a special chapter meeting. They
dumped Backmeyer and Crabtree and stayed with
Jacobs on their own.
Buddy Jacobs won the presidential race that night.
Cheeseman tried valiantly to come back. His
Heres How sheet was succt ss and his perfor performance
mance performance at the Rawlings debate was the highlight of
those presidential encounters.
Tuesdays performance couldnt stop the Litz
and Jacobs swell.
Asked if he still could have won even with Litz,
Cheeseman commented, Yes, if we had run a
perfect campaign. .. ....
Cheesemans organization wasnt always smooth.
The gap between the workers and the decision
makers wasnt always breached successfully.
Decision threw only half the poop that Jacobs
did and then some of it too late, i.e., the platform.
Cheeseman was continuously plagued by ill health
and ran a fever throughout the contest. Often times
he appeared uninterested. Added to the problem of
listlessness was the factor that Cheeseman had spent
eight trimesters in a row at Florida.
If Litz had not made the impact he did, the holding
action of Cheeseman would have worked. However,
this type of game plan couldnt hold off both a
fraternity and a candidate who appealed to the
Those who envision a dejected person in the now nowdefeated
defeated nowdefeated Cheeseman have guessed wrong. He intends
to remain the head of his party throughout.
He is certain Decision Party will be a real force
in Student Government because it controls the Leg Legislative
islative Legislative Council as well as the Honor Court and
Treasury. Through that media Cheeseman expects
to complete Decisions platform.
Cheeseman will enter law school in the Fall after
a well-earned Summer break, completely divorced
from academics and Gainesville.
What about next year at this time? Steve only
smiled. He certainly doesnt consider himself po politically
litically politically dead.
on food service
Due to statements made during
one of the campus political debates,
I feel it necessary to comment
further on Food Service.
Should Food Service be placed
on rotating bid with Morrisons?
This avoids the issue. If
Morrisons takes over Food
Service we will pay their prices
and they will reap the profits.
The point is, Food Service should
be operated by the University with
profits going to the students. This
can be done.
Gay H. Welborn would have done
this were he permitted to.
However, certain parties have a
strangle hold on Food Service and
are bleeding it dry for all it is
Why should the profits from the
vending machines which come from
students pockets be allowed to be
spent for a select few, rather than
revert back to the overall benefit
of all the students?
Mr. Welborn wanted Food Ser Service
vice Service to operate vending machines.
Then profits to the University
would be increased and would go
to the students in the form of
quality food and maximum ser service
vice service at minimum prices.
I would like to know where Mr.
Cheeseman received his informa information
tion information that Food Service is subsi subsidized
dized subsidized by the State Legislature.
This statement is completely false.
Furthermore, the major diffi difficulties
culties difficulties lie right on this campus.

It may take assistance from the

assured they are here.
I hope Mr. Jacobs, our new

avoid this issue. I hope he will
not waste time, but investigate the

UF students cheer the Viet Nam veterans honored
in the weekends Operation Appreciation. The four
(From Page I)
Leadership fraternity, which were presented by FBK President
Lts. Bill Hill, Ken Carey, Orville Hengren along with Spinaio told
of their appreciation to the UF and of the war in Viet Nam.
Lt. Hill urged Americans to send food, clothing, and medical
supplies to the Vietnamese. This is something you can do in support
of your troops, he told the audience.
If you could see a three year old child in the cold mountains
without any clothes, it touches your heart. By sending supplies Hill
said Americans would show theyre a people with a heart, not just
military from the United States.
We have a mission in Viet Nam, he added. It is to supress
the advancement of Communism in Southeast Asia. Were there
physically because we were asked by the Vietnamese government.
Were there morally because its morally right. We believe in freedom
and democracy as away of life. The Vietnamese have expressed
this feeling too, he said.
Lt. Hengren told the crowd, Operation Appreciation is about
the greatest thing you could have done to show your appreciation
for what we are doing in Viet Nam.
Lt. Carey said, the Army calls the people who dont get the

Sophomores The Key
With the opening of spring foot football
ball football practice only two weeks away
Coach Ray Graves has already
reached a conclusion about the
1966 UF outlook.
Sophomores will be the key to
the 1966 Florida team, Graves
says. We will be more dependent
on first-year men than at any
time since I came to Florida in
Sophomores, Graves notes, are
leading conte nde rs for starting
honors in at least five positions on
offense and four more on defense.
Our first concern in spring
work will be finding the boys who
can play nextkall and getting them
in the proper positions, says
Offhand, Id say approximately
two dozen sophomores figure in
our plans. To this will be added
the traditional few other boys who
make rapid advancement after
average freshman years.
