Will A UF Coed
Be Miss America?
The girl who wins the Miss Gainesville contest March 26, may
win the Miss America Pageant in September.
This and a $250 scholarship are what the sponsors of the Miss
Gainesville contest are hoping will attract some 25 beautiful and
talented girls to enter the Miss Gainesville pageant from the city
area and the university campus.
Chairman of the pageant, Alray Howard, said the contest has
been officially sanctioned by the Miss America Pageant officials.
This means the winner, in addition to receiving a $250 scholar scholarship
ship scholarship and a trophy, will travel to Sarasota in June to compete in
the Miss Florida contest.
If she wins, she will then represent Florida in the Miss America
Pageant in Atlantic City, N. J., on September 10.
This is the first year a Miss Gainesville contest has been
sanctioned in this way and we hope to make it an annual event,
Howard said.
The contest is being sponsored by the Gainesville Chamber of
Commerce, the Junior Chamber of Commerce and the Business
and Professional Womens Club of the city.
Were going to run this contest as close to the pattern of the
Miss America Pageant as possible, Howard said.
Judging will be on beauty, poise, personality and talent.
Special master of ceremonies for the show Saturday night at the
Gainesville High School Auditorium will be Miss America 1962,
Maria Beale Fletcher.
To enter a girl must be a resident of Alachua County for the
last six months or a full time student at the University. She must
be between the ages of 18 and 28 on September 4, 1966. She must
be single. Girls may be sponsored by any group or business.
Any girl wishing to enter the contest but who does not have a
sponsor can contact the Chamber of Commerce office and we will
get her a sponsor, said Howard.

A person is overweight when he

Being overweight is not a great
problem to a young person, said
Wray. But in 10 to 15 years it
will seriously increase the risks
associated with heart disease,
and high blood pressure.
There are three reasons why
people are overweight: emotional,
social, and organic.
Organic reasons include mat-?'

involved in making the University Auditorium

Long hard hours were put in by Leon Polhill, Ray

Often it looked as though the whole idea would be
killed by red tape, but Polhill and Cohn never stopped
working. The two went out of their way to get firm
commitments from Scott Kelly and Robert King High.
Their persistence showed the UF Administration they
really meant business.
Hats are off to UF President J. Wayne Reitz for
his willingness to break with precedent. His actions
show the UF is starting to become the political

In the past, such debates could only be held in

ferous small-but-vociferous forces in the 1965-66 Council.
Havisers selection for the award proved it was
made on a non-partisan basis, and it showed the
respect the old majority party Progress had
for him.
On the selection committee for the award was
George Blaha, Progress Party leader and Havisers
political enemy.
It looked like a magnanimous gesture on Blahas
part, but George said it wasnt. Haviser, he ex explained,
plained, explained, was simply the Councils most valuable
A sort of rugged-individualist type, Haviser last
year represented a minority party in the finest
fashion. He didnt impede progress (no pun intended),
but merely kept the majority party on its toes, which
naturally made for better government and a better
Legislative Council.
This years minority party members, whoever
they should be -- would do well to follow Havisers

Honor Court Chancellor
Several questions seem to greatly concern Florida students
regarding their individual rights in relation to the University
Administration and Campus Police.
I encountered these questions and misconceptions during my
recent campaign dorm stomping: Dont we sign away our
rights to be free from search when we sign a housing contract
since we are on University property? ... and, Doesn t the
University have the right to enter and search our rooms at will?
Both these questions appear to come back to the basic question
of whether or not a student comes within the meaning and scope
of those persons protected by the statutes of the State of Florida,
the Constitution of the State of Florida as interpreted by the
Florida Supreme Court, and the 14th Amendment to the Constitu Constitution
tion Constitution of the United States.
I would like to use these questions as a point of departure tor
several articles concerning this subject that I plan to write for
The Alligator during my term as Chancellor.
Before I begin a description of students legal rights and ob obligations,
ligations, obligations, let me insert here a disclaimer and caveat to assure
every reader that as Chancellor I want to assist, not impede, the
effective enforcement of the criminal law and the Honor Code
under which we live. *
However, the system of laws under which we live provides
explicit procedural requirements as to the manner and methods
of law enforcement. Unless the law enforcement agencies charged
with protecting the public adhere to these procedural requirements,
the public is not being served, but rather it is being imposed upon
by the law enforcement agency creating its own legislation and
procedural rules in place of those established by the lawfully
elected representatives of the people and the judicial body that
sits as the interpreter of the law.
Each student on this campus should be aware that his housing
contract doesnt negate the rights that surround each student as
a person protected by the Florida Laws and the United States
Every person has an absolute right to be free from an unreason unreasonable
able unreasonable search; which means a search that is conducted without a
legally sufficient search warrant obtained by the Campus Police
in the manner prescribed by law or a search that is incident to
a lawful arrest.
A dormitory room MAY be entered by the RESIDENT OR
SECTION ADVISOR under certain narrow conditions which fall
within the area of regulations and policy established by the
University. These areas are four in number.
The University may establish reasonable regulations concern concerning
ing concerning health, maintenance, fire, and deportment of students None
of these four areas of regulation includes the prerogative of the
resident or section advisor to conduct a search of the occupants
personal belongings or a search of the person himself
The purported justification of a housing contract clause or a
persons presence on University property have no legal merit
A waiver of protected rights must be freely given with full
knowledge of the meaning of the waiver and the waive'r must be
free from any hint of duress or coercion. The rights of earh
person are strictly an individual matter than can not be waived
by ones status as a student.
The mere presence on state property does not remove the
constitutional protection accorded each person as codified in the
state and federal constitutions. If these alleged justifications were
factual, then every car driven on campus could be searched h!
the campus police, which, of course, is not legally nossihie

by Barry Diamond
(On the Preservation of //J
Status Quo: An Open Lette] |
Dedicated to Dean of Student |
Affairs Lester Hale) I
Protest is the big thing on the collegecampus
today. On subjects from Viet Nam to the Okla-
waha River, pickets and dissenters can be found
Why? Why does the college campus produce such
protests against the status quo? This column, by
examining this campus, shall offer one possible
Lets begin with the matter of alcoholic bev-
erages. Everyone knows theyre against univer-
sity rules, and that a student found with alcoholic
beverages in his room is subject to suspension.
Dean Hale himself has made this statement more
than once. The rule is enforced in the dormitor-1
ies, as many who are now on disciplinary warning
or probation have found out. But there is an
alcoholic sanctuary on campus, in the form of the |
fraternity houses. Now everyone knows that the
fraternity houses are subject to the same dis-
cipline that dorms are. But somehow their
policeman, the Interfraternity Council, is not
quite as strict as the Section and Resident Ad-
visors in the living areas.
Now there is one more thing that everyone
knows. And that is that an awful lot of drinking
goes on in fraternity houses. There is one house
on campus in which each brother is given a
number, and places a bottle with that number
behind the bar, so that all he has to do is call
his number, and the bartender can make his
drink. But this is only the most routinized form
of fraternal drinking. In the other houses most
of the boys just bring their own, and are content H
to mix them with soft drinks. I
Now the discerning readers among you may H
have noticed a discrepancy between the type of H
enforcement used on dorm residents as opposed H
to fraternity men. You might now wish to jump H
to the conclusion that there are TWO status quos. H
But that is incorrect. There is only one. It has, H
however, TWO very distinct parts, and it is this H
INTERNAL discrepancy that inspires protest. H
Lets take another example, that of girls
curfew. Now that were familiar with the pattern I
we can be more brief. Dorm residents face stern
penalties if they are as much as one minute late.
There is no bending in the prescribed rules in
regard to them. But sorority house residents are
somewhat better off. There is no RA at the door
Friday and Saturday night waiting to hand out an
offense slip for that last kiss which didnt un- I
pucker until 1:31. As for weeknights, the en- I
forcers are sorority sisters, pledged by good-
ness knows what to help fellow members of dear
old Tri-Phooie. It can readily be seen that there I
is but one set of university regulations. But alas,
it can be just as easily seen that there are vary- I
ing levels of enforcement. 1
This column should not be mistaken as a dia- 1
tribe against the fraternity-sorority system. It I
is not. For the status quo, like justice, is blind 1
and shows no favoritism. As an example of how I
it can work against the fraternities, take the 1
matter of hazing. For this offense a fraternity 1
can get into serious trouble. But the military I
societies are quite another story. (Military I
things, even more than fraternities, are IN 1
these days.) They go blithely about the campus, 1
hazing as they please, secure in the knowledge 1
that Big Brother is watching and approves. The 1
conclusion to the last paragraph applies equally 1
well here. I
Lets carry our examination of the status quo 1
a little further. I
Everyone knows that all students on this 1
campus, as in America, are equal, endowed with 1
the same rights and privileges as all the other
students. But alas, in reality this is not so. Ir 1
there is a breed on this, and most other campus j
es, known as the athlete. And it is to his re relationship
lationship relationship with the collegiate status quo that we
shall turn in my next column.

keep the Gator free

As a former Alligator staff member, I fail to
understand your willingness to yield to pressure
to place The Gator under faculty control. Like
it or not, thats what placing the paper in the
hands of the School of Journalism and Communi Communications
cations Communications amounts to. Oh, yes, journalism students
would produce the paper .. but would they have
complete freedom to publish what they want?
Would they be free, say, to criticize the
Governor as you did in an editorial several
months ago . particularly when its time to
submit University budgets to the Legislature
or Cabinet? Absolutely free?
Would they be free to publish a series on
academic freedom such as your current series?
Really? With no holds barred (within the bounds
of responsible reporting)?
Would they be free to publicize the antics of
the minority of recognition-hungry bearded beat beatniks
niks beatniks on campus? Would they?
No matter how much we admire the Journalism
faculty, could these professors withstand the
pressure from Tigert to suppress certain stor stories
ies stories . such as race questions and possible
wrong-doing among adminitrators? Could they?
For how long? Until time for the next Journalism
School budget review? Until time for the next
salary raise review?
How long can a strong-willed faculty member
withstand the pressure of threats against a salary
raise? Mustnt his family eat, too? Can a grow growing
ing growing school such as Journalism and Communica Communications
tions Communications hold off a threat against future purchase of
needed equipment?
As strongly ingrained as freedom of the
press may be, can the studentsinterest really
come first in the face of such threats?
When I was with The Alligator, it was doing a
fair job of turning out one issue a week.
Today, it is doing a good job with five issues.

it isnt getting ALL of the features it might.

If. as you say, manpower is the problem, then
the answer is to hire more manpower. If students
cant do it, hire more professional men. If The

the added payroll, request additional student
funds to do the job.
If all else fails, publish fewer issues per

In yesterdays Alligator I noted two newsstories on campus talks £
on Viet Nam policy. They were headlined Matthews Favors £
Escalation and Radical to Speak Against Viet Nam. £
I am pleased to see that opposing views in this Great Debate £
: are being expressed at our university, thus helping our own g
thinking on this complex and serious problem. £
To comment specifically on your headlines, I would think that g
the Anti-Viet Nam attitude, which has been expressed by many g

the minority position of Senator Stuart Symington and Represen- g

Social Alienation Causes
Alcoholism Rate Increase
BERKELEY, Calif.(UPl) The increasing rate of alcoholism

Floridas Social Life Reeks!
That is if you hate costume parties, picnics, wood parties, Daytona
and just having a good time.
If you only get a thrill out of snow skiing or mountain climbing,
forget it. Florida will reek for you.
For some people, Florida is the social playground of the South,
maybe even the nation. The in-crowd, those at the UF who are not
flunking out, know this is not true. They know that academics equal
if not outweigh the social. But they support the image. When someone
says, Oh, you go to Florida? Play school. Majoring in sun baling?
The true high-camp people then smile and add another enemy to the
This week and the week following are mid-term week. Anyone who
intimates that this is a play school stands a good chance of never
living to tell it to another person.
But then there are parties.. .Florida style. At the Phi Tau house,
all inhibitions were released in the form of a barbarian party.

Benton Hall was the first en engineering

dean, J.R. Benton, it was renamed
Benton Hall.
Walker Hall was built in 1926
as an addition to the engineering
school. The building was named
after Edgar J. Walker, a former
engineering professor who died in
1955 at the age of 96.
Walker, a graduate of West
Point, was a veteran of Indian
Wars in Dakota. He came to Florida
as a professor of military science
and tactics in 1908. In 1918, he
began teaching mechanical
engineering at the school.
The two buildings housed all
offices, classrooms, and labs of
the engineering school. Behind
Benton a wing was built for boilers
and steam engine laboratories.
Today, Walker houses the UF
mathematics department, and Ben Benton

But sentimental alumni of the
engineering school may still look
in on the steam engine and boiler
wing, which is still in use as it
was when they were students.

GENESYS Displays
At March EG Fair
Alligator Staff Writer
Graduate Engineering Education System (GENESYS) facilities will
be available for display at the Engineers Fair this year, according
to Fair Chairman Chuck Daniher, 4EG. The Fair is March 11, 12,
and 13. It will be open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday; 2 p.m. to 10
p.m., Saturday, and 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., Sunday.
Courses will be in session so that the people can see how the
system works, said Sandy Bush, engineer and coordinator for the
GENESYS operation located in the UF Engineering Building.
Times for classes are 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday of the Fair.
A display will be set up in the computer lab with cameras and other
control mechanisms, he said.
Video tape or cameras coming from the lab will be projected in
the Engineering Building Auditorium during Fair time so people can
attend a class, he added.
GENESYS, which is a closed circuit TV system, was initiated
May 3, 1965.
The system brings together limited numbers of students desiring
high-level graduate courses and the limited supply of geographically
separated professors qualified to teach these courses, Bush said.
Classes may originate in studios set up in Gainesville, Daytona,
Orlando or Cape Kennedy ( Port Canaveral).
Currently 32 courses are being held over TV with an attendance
of 354 graduate students. In addition, approximately 110 UF students
are participating in courses being taught on the TV network, Bush
Sixteen of the courses originate in Gainesville, 11 at Port Canaveral,
three at Orlando and two at Daytona.
Receiving classrooms are provided in the originating areas and
also at Patrick Air Force Base, Merritt Island Launch Area (MILA)
and in the UF Engineering Building. v
The smallest class is two students; the largest 32.
The unique feature of GENESYS is its talk-back system, Bush said.
Talk-back is a telephone system, where phones have small buttons
which, when depressed, cause the name of a particular location to
light up on a board in the transmitting studio.
For example, a student in Gainesville who is puzzled about something
his professor who is in Orlando is writing on the blackboard
can talk to him on the phone about the problem.
The professor, who has a microphone hanging around his neck,
answers and a normal conversation takes place.
For students having difficulties with course problems, two studios
are connected so the professor can see and talk directly to the students
who, in turn, can demonstrate over the network on a blackboard the
exact difficulty that baffles them, Bush said.
This type of hookup may also be used for oral examinations, he
The GENESYS TV network was designed and developed by UF
Professor William J. Kessler, who is also consulting engineer for
the Florida Educational Television Commission, and by Clarence H.
Magee, reisdent television engineer at Cape Kennedy.
Magee is supervisor of the complete network facilities.
The Board of Control was authorized and directed to establish
GENESYS by the Florida Legislature in 1963.

The names he proposed were. Mike Bowen and

First, he questioned some of the qualifications

In addition, he said of the 11 fraternities support supporting

He said he didnt want a repetition of the Leg

Choice Os Decision:
To Help Or Hinder
Alligator Staff Writer
(Editors "Note: Staff writer Mike Malaghan fills in the hows and
whys of Student Government politics.)
Tuesday night Leg Council, firmly controlled by Decision Party,
blocked immediate approval of the U cabinet officers that Student
Body President Buddy Jacobs had put before them.
Instead, they followed the precedent of our national government and
asked for a committee review of each officer.
Before we condemn or acclaim the action, lets look at the alter alternatives
natives alternatives of Decision and their current power status.
First of all, Decision Party has solid control of the legislative
branch. Let there be no doubt about this.
Now, the problem for Decision is how to use that power.
They could lie dormant and do nothing. That is, they could pass on
r the cabinet like every Leg Council automatically.
Decision Party would have be bethe
the bethe people
if it had followed that course of
>;vy-. ./ / V \ r\-.*;*vl£, Uen-u i. Part', could have used
their dominant position in the le legislative
gislative legislative branch to simply wreck
the cabinet until Jacobs was forced
to deal and trade.
And this WAS tried last Sunday! A deal was attempted by some
unidentified Decision Party people. They wanted Secretary of Finance
and a few other spots. In return for that, they (Decision) would agree
to pass all other positions without reservation.
It is a credit to Jacobs that he simply said no deal.
How important a role Steve Cheeseman played in the Sunday calls
is speculation. What IS known is that he is now in firm control of
his party. No deals will be offered or made.
So Cheeseman has decided not to play the role of a wrecker at
least that is the present indication.
The third approach for Decision Party would be that of a loyalist
opposition. Gary Goodrich, floor leader for Decision Party, explained,
We will not judge if there are more qualified men on campus, but
rather that men nominated by Jacobs are indeed qualified.
The third choice, if sincere, is a role only to be applauded by
students in both parties and all over the campus.
What would we think if the President of the United States asked
Congress to pass on his entire cabinet in an hour. But yet that is
what Leg Council has done in the past.
Our Legislative Council can show that it has reached a new maturity
and can actually be an equal third in the governing process of Student
The 13 cabinet officers in attendance werent entirely pleased with
the outcome.
They fear that the committee is just a delaying tactic to slow down
the administration of Jacobs. They still suspect a political deal.
Their suspicions are not entirely unfounded. There is definite
precedent that would make one wary of Decision Partys motive on
this matter.
However. Steve Cheeseman has assured the students that Decision
Party will not wreck the executive branch.

The Godwins agreed that the
most impressive aspect of the
country was the climate and the
beautiful countryside.
In the time we were there the
low temperature was 40 degrees
and the high was 85 degrees, but
the temperature was usually
around 65 degrees throughout the
year, Godwin said.
As recreation the Godwins went
swimming and horseback riding.
Also, the deer, quail, pigeon and
hot hunting was excellent up in
the mountains.
It took us a very short time
to learn the particular Spanish
dialect of the area. After Jean
learned the language fairly well she
ran the commissary for the mill.
Godwin said.
The Godwins maintained a vege vegetable

Because the town of La

Micanopy, it was necessary to go

only be bought in a big city.
A trip of 230 miles seems like a
relatively short trip, but since the
journey was made through the
mountains it took nine hours.

Rifles Ready To Go;
Tough Match AheadV
Alligator Staff Writer
With two weeks of concentrated practice behind them, the
Florida Rifles journey to Lakeland this weekend to take on the
rifle teams from Florida Southern and Miami.
The Gator sharpshooters currently sport a 14-1 record, the
only defeat coming at the hands of nationally number one-ranked
Major Harvey Dick, advisor to the Florida Rifles, is predicting
a tough match against the Miami marksmen.
In the National Rifle Association Sectional Match in Miami
a few weeks ago, those Hurricanes placed three shooters in
the top six for individual firing, said Dick. I was especially
impressed with their number one rifleman, Wesley Weldon. He
shot a 280 score out of a perfect 300.
Representing the Gator rifle squad in lakeland will be Co Cocaptians
captians Cocaptians Toby Muir and Jon Gordon, Lee Young, Bob Moeller,
Jim Waugh, Bill Blanton and Jay Weber.
Moeller and Young have looked especially sharp in practice
this past week, stated Dick. Both men have consistently
been shooting in the 270s. Its this type of steady firing that
wins matches.
Gordon will be making his first trip with the squad since Nov November.
ember. November. A bad back has hampered the ace shooter for the last few
Im very happy that Jon will be able to go with us on this
trip, commented Dick. Besides being a fine marksman, he gives
the other team members a psychological lift just by being there.
Sgt. Joe Nave, coach of the Florida Rifles, says the team should
leave Lakeland this weekend with two more victories to their
credit and a 16-1 record.
The men have been shooting very well in practice, said
Nave, and right now they look very sharp.
In case youre wondering about the unusual cut at the top of
yesterdays column, heres the story.
The paste-up lab Picasso, Brownie Johnston, decided to have
a little fun and add a little verve to the paper. Needless to
say, ol Spots was under the influence of opaqueing fluid at the
time nothing unusual for our hero.
Brownie is a hard working young man, and I guess hes just
been working too hard lately wenching, shooting pool and the
The Tennessee Volunteers have the chance to play the role of
a spoiler Saturday when they face the Kentucky Wildcats.
The Vols, 16-7 overall and 9-5 in the SEC, have a chance to
ruin Adolph Rupps first chance for a perfect season since 1954
when his Wildcats posted a 25-0 record. Rupps 54 team, inci incidentally,
dentally, incidentally, was the last SEC team to go all the way for a perfect
The top-ranked Wildcats will face one of the nations best
defenses. The Vols are still smarting over a recent loss to the
Gators, and they will be out for blood (literally).
If Kentucky gets by Tennessee Saturday, they wont be in the
clear. One week later they must face the Vols on their home court
in Knoxville.
A double victory by Tennessee, though highly unlikely, could
make the Vanderbilt Commodores co-champion of the SEC. The
Commodores still have to face LSU, but the Bengals present
little problem for the sixth-ranked team in the country. In the
event of a tie, Kentucky would still go to the NCAA tournament
on the basis of fewer losses. Vanderbilt has already lost three
games, including two losses against Kentucky. The most Kentucky
can lose this season is three.
The 20th-ranked Vols have allowed an average of only 57
points per game, developing into one of the top teams in the
South. After losing three conference games in mid-January,
the Vols reeled off 10 straight wins until Keller, Morton and
friends knocked them off Monday night, 89-86.
Saturdays game at the Barons lair will match Kentuckys
balance against Tennessees size and defense. Kentucky has no
one to match 6-9 Red Robbins, but all five Wildcat starters are
averaging in double figures.
Kentuckys Pat Riley and Louie Dampier are both averaging
better than 20 points per game, providing the Cats with a potent
one-two punch. Tennessees Ron Widby leads the Vols in scoring
with a 17.6 average and is a dangerous shooter from the outside.
