The Board of Student Publications voted Wednesday
to request more cooperation and less secrecy from
the UF administration and faculty.
The request will be made in the form of a letter
to UF President J. Wayne Reitz. The letter will be
submitted to the Board for approval next Thursday.
In the letter will be a request for Dr. Reitz to
lend the prestige of his office in persuading hesitant
sources to divulge needed information when Alligator
reporters make reasonable requests for story ma material.
The matter came up for discussion when Board
Member Dr. H. B. Clark said a number of Alligator
issues recently had shown an imbalance in the
Alligator Editor Benny Cason said his reporters
were often greeted with closed doors, unavailable
files and no comments when they sought to get
all sides for their stories. The exchange prompted
Clark to move for help from the UF administration

Adviser Jim Moorhead assured the Board that he
had reviewed the column before it was set. Moorhead
also said that Hardy had assured him that his per personal

Channels of communication were agreed on,
whereby any potentially libelous material will be

Clark said he thought The Alligator should be

Moorhead explained the excruciating decision

Beat Auburn In '66
Beat Auburn -- thats the cry for Homecoming 1966.
There has been a lot of confusion as to when Homecoming weekend
would take place. Some UFers thought it would take place against
Tulane on Nov. 12. while others thought it would be the weekend of
the Auburn game on Oct. 2.
Yesterday, a committee composed of Dean of University Relations
Alan Robertson. SG President Buddy Jacobs and Blue Key President
Bruce Starling met to clear the air and decide when Homecoming 66
would take place.
Jacobs and Starling felt the Tulane game was too close to exams
to be a Homecoming game. explained Robertson. By picking the
Auburn game, it will be more convenient for students to attend.
In 1960, Floridas Homecoming was played against Tulane in mid-
November, setting precedent for having Homecoming late in the season.
More tickets would have been available for alumni at the Tulane
game, explained Robertson. However, seasonal tickets will not be
affected regardless when Homecoming is played.
A strong game will attract more ptipple. said A1 Alsobrook,
director of alumni affairs.
He added that there shouldnt be any significant difference in alumni
attendance between the two games.

CUBAN TRIAL . Trial of a former Cuban army major and seven
other persons on charges of conspiring to kill Premier Fidel Castro
continued Wednesday. There appeared little doubt as to the fate of
ex-Maj. Rolando Cubela, a former student leader who pleaded guilty
to all charges and asked for the firing squad. The state also asked
the death penalty for three of the other defendants. According to
Cubela. he plotted to kill Castro with Manuel Artime, an anti-Castro
leader in exile, whom he met in Madrid.

House Refuses Bill
To Reapportion State
TALLAHASSEE (UPI) Hopes of an early solution to Floridas
reapportionment dilemma blew up Wednesday when the House refused
to accept the 48-senator bill which cleared the Senate.
This puts the Senate in the position of either coming up with another
bill, amending the 48-senator bill, or calling for a conference com committee
mittee committee of members of both houses to sit down and work out a com compromise.
The House voted 61-48 to reject the bill after two and one-half
hours of heated debate.
There was no attempt by the House to try to amend or change the
Senates reapportionment measure. It merely decided to-4hrow the
whole matter back to the senators.
Sen. John Mathews Jr., Jacksonville, Senate floor leader for the
urban majority bloc, said Tuesday he beiieved the Senate could pass
a 56-senator version if the House refused the 48-member plan.
The House action was interpreted as a rebuff to the coalition of big
and little county senators who foisted off this monstrosity on the
House for revenge against others of the small county bloc who de deserted
serted deserted the small county bloc a year ago.
Most all of the debate against the plan, in both houses, involved the
sprawling 24-county North Florida district which required candidates
for the Senate to campaign in and represent 24 counties stretching
from Marianna to the Atlantic Ocean.
House members reported that at least one member of the Senate
rural minority bloc, which holds 13 to 14 votes, told him he had the
signatures of 13 sure votes against any plan if the House rejected
the 48-senator bill.
But House opponents of the Senate measure begged colleagues not
to be a bunch of sheep dogs and knuckle under to the other chamber.
While the heavy fighting raged

forces had suffered more than

Hartman Cuts Viet Policy
By BILL MARTINEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
The Director of the Institute of
International Relations at the UF
took American foreign policy in
Asia to task yesterday -- especi especially
ally especially with regards to Viet Nam and
Communist China but admitted
there was no easy way out of Viet
Nam for the United States at pre present.
We are stuck with this task
now whether like it or not,
Dr. Frederick Hartman said in a
speech in the Florida Union Audi Auditorium
torium Auditorium sponsored by Pi Sigma
Alpha, Political Science honorary
fraternity, in cooperation with the
University Lecture Series.
The best we can hope for (in
Viet Nam) is a precarious neutra neutralization
lization neutralization arising out of a negotiated
settlement, Hartman said. The
prospects for success along these
lines are probably not going to
improve until we pay a greater
blood-tax than we have so far.
Hartman criticized Americans
for making foreign policy by "slo "slogans.

had gone from a policy of neutra neutrality

Second World War to one of a most

American foreign policy), became

American foreign jolicy since
the postwar years has been based
on anti-communism, opposition to
aggression and defense of the li liberties
berties liberties of free people or those
striving to be free.
Hartman pointed out that some
differentiation should be made in
being anti-Communist in Asia.
If Ho Chi-Minh is attempting
to unify Viet Nam but keep it out
of Chinas hands then the continued
bloodshed there will eventually
weaken North Viet Nams ability
to resist Chinese encroachment,
Least satisfactory from na national
tional national interest standpoint is the
proposition that we are defending
freedom, Hartman said. It is
no least satisfactory because it is,
or is not a true description of the
sac ts in Viet Nam.
It is least satisfactory because
it raises the freedom of any people
anywhere to an equal plane as an
American objective regardless of
tie costs in American blood.
The American policy of oppo opposition
sition opposition to aggression, per se, was
also criticized by Hartman.
An American policy dedicated
to the proposition, that conquest
anywhere is unacceptable is or
would be an extremely broad po policy,
licy, policy, Hartman said, one never
previously implemented on a world
scale by any single power.
Hartman raised the possibility
that American foreign policy in
the Far East was either wrong
because it took the burden of de defense

or wrong because the powers in

It should be pointed out. also, that Mr. Mautz

lie is doing most of the work which ordinarily would
fall on the shoulders of the UF Vice-President.

In addition, Mautz is teaching a class in legal
ethics. As part of his administrative yobs, he travels
extensively and speaks for the UF at an endless

Even more important, Mautz has been one of the

criticism graciously. The few times The Alligator
has been critical of Mautz, he has reacted in a
positive and gracious man/ter.
And it also should be pointed out that Vice-Presi Vice-President
dent Vice-President Mautz always keeps an open door for both
students and faculty. While much of this university
remains cloaked in secrecy, Mautz has always made
himself available to the press. When you contact

an honest attempt at getting him to the phone, rather
than curtly saying, Oh hes out of town today. or

have induced enough members of my party to change sides, to change
the status of our party to that of a minority.
They did so by offering spoils, and I regret to say that my former
fellow party members were unprincipled enough to accept these spoils.
I denounce the President lor authorizing his representatives to make
such offers, and I decry the fact that so many of those offers were
accepted. The will of the people'has been violated.
No doubt you me in laughing at such a ridiculous story as
the one above. You will agree with me that a political climate like
that does not exist in our federal government, and that if it did it
would have to be changed. Yet we on this campus are in no position
to laugh at this story, for what it describes is the political situation
here on campus.
If one asks oneself why an organization, such as Blue Key. or certain
individuals such as Frank Glinn. can wield such great political power,
part of the answer can be found by examining the system of government
which is in eflect here at Florida.
Each year two major parties emerge, each with approximately half
of the Greeks on campus as its bulwark. The independents dont figure
in this stage at all. The Independent Organization (led by Glinn. and
not to be confused with the independents) affiliates with one of the
parties while the other scrounges around to form some sort of in independent

vote on campus being ineffectually split between these two major

not in a very favorable position. But all is not lost for them. If they
are lucky they can switch sides, and join up with the winners. This
type of luck is a rarity when the winning side already has a leg coun council

with the regularity of a clock.

primary allegiance to their chapters. That they should put the inter interest

go to show that the smartest voter in the last election was the non nonvoter.
In the column I wrote on election day. I wrote that the choice between
Cheeseman and Jacobs was like that of Tweedledee and Tweedledum.
Now it appears that it wasnt even that broad. Is this the type of
student government you want?
\lI KK MALAGHA\ s
The TEPs walked out of frolics Saturday night
when C. D. Hobbs, service chairman of the ifc,
announced the FUIs had won the Dar. McCarty
The Tau Epsilon Phis explained they si aid lave
Maybe the TEPs should have won, but Jerry Levine
president, and Lee Borden, vice preside:.:, and 20
other TEPs proved little by disrupting frolics twice.
First the TEPs walked out. Then when the enter entertainment
tainment entertainment began they walked back in so their dates
could see the show.
The indiscreet walkout doesnt cover up the fact
that the service award was handled poorly.
According to the memorandum sent to all frater fraternities
nities fraternities by Hobbs, the selection committee was to
be selected on the basis of their notability and im impartiality.
partiality. impartiality. They w'ill be approved by the IFC Exe Executive
cutive Executive Commit ee.
The five judges were selected by Mike Weatherby,
chairman of the Dan McCarty award.
The judges were never approved by the Executive
Council. In fact Clyde Taylor, president of IFC:
Dean William Bryan, advisor to IFC for the Dean
of Men, and Hobbs didnt even know who all the
judges were until informed by this reporter.
The judges were David Hayward, a TKE fraternity
brother of Weatherbys; Carolyn Tanner, a friend
ol W'eatherbys; Dean William Cross, assistant dean
of men; Dean Hayes McClelland, dean for financial
aid, and Dean Krantz. acting Dean of Women.
No one doubts the credibility of Weatherby or any
of the judges, but the method of selection does de detract
tract detract from the meaningfulness of the award.
The committee of judges never met. Each judge
was given a copy of the book that the four competing
fraternities submitted, to be judged individually.
The memorandum of Hobbs also mentions projects
as the only criterion for selection. The projects
must be based on contribution to the campus,
nation, and the fraternity system.
Os the six-and-one-half pages of printed qualifi qualifications
cations qualifications in the FIJI book, three pages were on indi individual
vidual individual Blue Key application material for
This was part of the criteria the judges used in
making their selection. The TEPs put nothing in
the book about individual contributions because the
rules requested only projects be listed.
Two awards the TEPs won couldnt be in the book.
The day the books were submitted is the same day
the Heart Fund and Blood Drive trophies were
The TEPs turned in the books at the 3 p.m.
deadline. Later that same day they were notified
that they had won both of the other awards.
Another 4 question; Should the entry books be public
record? Dean Bryan didnt want this reporter to see
the booklets unless either the fraternity president of
the house gave permissionor the executive committee
of IFC voted permission. The TEP house has copies
of their own book and the Phi Gams.
It would seem that something as important as an
award given at a show with 6.700 people in atten attendance
dance attendance would be public record.
The TEPs got a copy of the FIJI book from Wea Weatherby
therby Weatherby under the guise that Cross had okayed it.
A last point; Although the award was handled
carelessly, the Phi Gams did have a wonderful
application that well could have won under any
Judging the contest is strictly a value judgment.
A couple of the judges explained they voted for the
Phi Gams because they performed many service
projects that were beyond the scope of the mual
caliber of project. The Phi Gams took the extra
Florida. Florida, where are you going?
Six years ago, in a proud moment in my F e
I became a graduate of the University of Florida.
I learned to love this school, and was later diu'\u
back to it. because there were a few stimulating
minds around that helped to nurture my curiosity*
Foremost among the better teachers was C. K.
To me. he was a man of profound intellm
tual vigor and integrity who possessed a genuine,
affectionate interest in his students.
And now he is leaving; driven out by amorpb
seemingly insoluble issues that have twisted our |
University into an instrument of the State.
The tragic loss of this great teacher to UI
campus is beyond expression. All I could say to
him, to sum up my feelings, was: Goodbye. Dr*
Yearley. Youre the best damn teacherT ever had.
And where are you going now. Florida?

As a concerned student. I wholeheartedly concur
with your editorial stand against moving The Florida
Alligator to the School of Journalism and Communi Communications.
Granted, there would be certain advantages in such
a move, but it is my considered opinion that the
disadvantages outweigh them. To me, the greatest
drawback to the move is the doubt that the paper
would permanently remain in student hands.
In your editorial of March 8. Andy Moor said that
The Alligator was . surprised and appalled
that a majority of professors and student leaders
arent willing to go on record as favoring or oppos opposing
ing opposing anything for apparent fear of reprisal from
someone in a position of authority.
I can speak only for myself in response, but I
seriously doubt that the charge is true. You may
remember that Student Party campaigned and won
on a platform which stressed student autonomy and
responsibility. They even threw a sheet in the
dorms which pointed out that moving The Alligator
to the School of Journalism would constitute a
serious loss of student autonomy. Therefore, knowing
the high caliber of the current Student Government
leaders, I would assume that a statement of oppo opposition
sition opposition will soon be issued.
Although I am opposed to the mpve, I can under understand
stand understand why some people support it. The Alligator has
Just as we need a free and responsible Student
Government, the student body is entitled to a free,
responsible, unbiased student newspaper. The pro proponents
ponents proponents of the move to the Journalism School preach
that the University community should have a -more
professional paper. Fine, but who cares if the copy
is grammatically better if the story is censored
because of its content? On the other hand, can you
really blame Mr. Weimer for wanting to be in control
of the paper if he is to be responsible for it? I think
Your editorial goes on to doubt that Tigert Hall
wants a free student voice (The Alligator). From my
associations with the men in Tigert Hall, I would say

that they do indeed want a free student voice. They
are not insensitive to student opinion, and The Alli Alligator
gator Alligator is one of the means of discovering it. But they
will probably agree with me that with freedoms go
commensurate responsibilities. Americans enjoy
freedom of the press and speech, but we are rightly
held accountable when we abuse our freedoms.
To be more direct, your allies in opposition to the
move to the Journalism School are faced with a much
more difficult task when some of your writers persist
in practicing journalism by innuendo and half-truth.
Campus Confetti is the supreme example of political
and journalistic cowardice. Your political columnists
sometimes write whole stories based on false as assumptions.
sumptions. assumptions. It is not at all rare to hear someone say
that he refuses to be interviewed for fear of being
misquoted or quoted out of context.
Your pages have exposed various administra administration
tion administration problems with genuine real gusto, and while
the administration may at times deserve constructive
criticism, it seems that praise should also be sung
when it is due,and thai these matters should be kept
in perspective. Is it any wonder that a considerable
number of people are out to get The Alligator by
moving it over to the stadium into a nice classroom?
I am not asking you to be less truthful. On the
contrary, I am urging your staff to take pains to be
more accurate in reporting, thus being more truthful.
I suggest that greater cooperation from the Journa Journalism
lism Journalism School would help to solve your problems, but
moving the whole operation over there strikes me
as being an extremely drastic move.
In short, I agree completely with you that The
Alligator should not be moved to the Journalism
School, and I appeal to your staff to improve its
journalistic responsibility to help keep the paper in
student hands where it rightfully belongs.
The student body will have been done a great
disservice it The Alligator is taken from us. It is
my hope that other students will join in the fray
and be heard.
Former Student Body Vice President
Lawdamighty, the sun certainly broke through the clouds in a hurry.
Here was The Alligator, flailing awav with a daily barrage oi expose
and invective against Tigert. SG. State Government and All Things Bad.
Then, suddenly, on Tuesday. March 8. the same day as he published
editorials suggesting administration pressure was being applied to the
'Gator, Editor Benny Cason was requested to appear before a review
board" of the Board of Student Publications, this to take place next
Monday evening, the 14th. The same day (the Bth) he received word of
the review board meeting, Cason met withSG President Buddy Jacobs.
And suddenly, on Wednesday, its Wonderland. The editorials are
masterpieces of praise and cordiality (Spirit's Good On Third Floor;
Blue Keys Busy. T< o; Refreshing (Fred) Breeze). Not only that, but
Page One features a box capped. What Student Government Is Doing
Now, I d be the last to suggest that Mr. Cason, worried for his little
hide, had decided to tone down his attack, to shift gears in midstream
and to cultivate new friendships, but all this sudden sunshine on the
heels of Threat certainly gives one cause to wonder.
Undoubtedly, The Alligator has gone off the deep end on occasion.
Sometimes it has been downright wrong. But show me a student news newspaper
paper newspaper that is always right. Or any newspaper, for that matter.
Benny Cason, if not a great editor, is certainly a pretty good one.
He has been running a steady ship since his foundering during the
Litz election," and he is, by no means, irresponsible: nor does he
engage in muckraking sake of muckraking.
I would suggest that not bend in the face of adversity.
The University is in enough-trouble without adding the firing of the
student newspaper editor to its debit column.
(EDITORS NOTE: Chairman John Webb of the Board of Student
Publications said after Wednesdays special called meeting that
Mondays meeting would not be held since the Wednesday meetihg
dealt with the scheduled matters. He also pointed out that the Monday"
meeting could not properly be called a "review or "critique meeting"
-inee, technically, it did not meet those specifications. Mr. Killeens
letter was written before the Wednesday meeting was called. It was,
neidentally, open and well-attended by non-publications people. See

For Some Changes
UF Library Is Due
By GEORGE CONE
Alligator Staff Writer
The UF main library will become the College Library with a
computer based charging system for the circulation of books when
the Research Library becomes available for use.
The Research Library is scheduled to open in September 1966,
but the date is tentative, depending upon the completion of con construction.
struction. construction. This new library will serve primarily graduate students
and faculty with research materials. However, it will be open to
The College Library, presently the University Library, will have
75,000 to 80,000 titles available for undergraduate students. The
number of books will increase yearly through additional purchases.
The computer-based charging system will employ IBM 357 Data
Collection Units, IBM 026 Key Punch machines and an IBM 1410
The new system will require less work and will be more efficient
and more economical. said Mrs. Margaret Knox Goggin, Assistant
Director for Readers Services.
The plans are to eliminate book paging by library employees and
offer an open stacks policy, continued Mrs. Goggin. In the past
temporary permits were necessary for students to go into the book
The number of student employees may not decrease as a result of
the technological innovation. Library employees will be concerned
with placing book returns on the shelves quicker, facilitated by less
filing and clerical work.
Changes are scheduled within the library plant to facilitate more
efficient service. The University College Reading Room will be
converted into a reserve room to make reserve books readily available.
All reserve books for courses through the 500 level will be shelved
The circulation of books will be centered at the present circulation
area. The IBM computers will be student-operated on a trial basis.
We shall see how the students get along operating the machines
for a time, said Mrs. Madge Tams, chairman of the Circulation
Control Committee (CIRCON). We observed this computer-based
system at Southern Illinois but the students did not directly operate
the machines there. she said.
The card catalog will be moved to the second floor lobby and news newspapers
papers newspapers will probably replace the catalog in the first floor corridor.
The bibliography room and circulation department will house the
fiction collection. Informal seating here will provide a browsing
Reference service for a Latin American collection will be established
in the browsing room. The Social Sciences room will offer reference
service for the social sciences. Reference services in the humanities,
the sciences and general reference will be in the Humanities room.
Reference service for business administration materials, including
economics, will be given from the Social Sciences reading room. The
periodical and map collections will be in the Science room and map
In addition to reducing the number of reference points from five
to three, books of a particular call number will be placed at one
point, said Mrs. Goggin. This will make locating and shelving the
books much easier.
The entire library staff has been studying these changes for the
past two years and plans include the purchase of additional copies
of publications that are in great demand. A two-year study of the books
most often used aided in the programming of the proposed changes.

Thursday night at 9:00 p.m., Gen. Bob Williams Sherman will

with the war-monger Yankees.
Friday at 3:00 p.m., a parade of secession will proceed up

Students Zucker Would Rather
Fight Than Switch Parties
By MIKE MALAGHAN
Alligator Staff Writer
In a surprise move at Tuesdays Legislative
Council meeting in the Florida Union, Jack Zucker,
Student Party representative from the College of
Arts and Sciences, attempted unsuccessfully to for forbid
bid forbid members from switching parties.
Zucker asked that the agenda be amended to in include
clude include the following bill: No students shall change
party affiliations during their term of office unless
their party dissolves.
Chip Block, majority leader for Student Party,
and Mike Bowen, also of Student, led the drive to
keep the bill off the agenda.
Fred Breeze explained that two-thirds of the
Leg Council must vote yes to add anything to
the agenda. The bill failed to be put on the agenda
by a vote of 29-21.
Bowen explained that he wasnt necessarily against
the bill but that he disapproved of the manner in which
it was presented. Bowen felt that Zucker should have
gone through the normal channels to have his bill
put onthe agenda.
Flying Is Inexpensive Fun
Out of 17,000 UF students and
faculty, about 90 fly airplanes,

the ranks of fliers would swell if
only students realized how modest
airplane operating costs can be.
Good airplanes can be had for
the price of a late model car, and
when three or four people buy and
maintain a plane together, cost per
individual is low.
