you have 30 days to turn right on

Last week, the Gainesville City

Florida and with State law.
Turning right against the light

The Film

Alphaville is a moral movie, and Jean Luc Godard, its
; director, has said that morality for him is a matter of tracking
(camera shooting). To put it another way, in Godard movies,
ultimately their morality is a part of art and thus (the) technical
problems involved in making a movie. Knowing this, Alphaville
can be a rewarding experience to an otherwise baffled viewer, for
the so-called gimmicks, popisms, homages, etc. that Godard is
famous for are tangent to the movies morality and not merely
one-line jokes. >
Thus, Godards movies must always be seen from the balanced
perspective of what is said and how it is said. This is why Godard
is so complex after all, his movies are moral universes.
From this notion, the movie proceeds as a fiction in two ways.
Godard begins by saying that Reality is so complex . that
only fiction can make it into an universal. Thus, the ensuing
adventures of Lenny Caution are an obvious fiction, a kind of
picaresque, satiric montage aimed at the fulfillment (and sub subsequent
sequent subsequent debunking) of certain classic spy film criteria.
On the second level, the film is an extension of Godards moral
vision. The terrifying mechanistic science of Alphaville is but the
metaphor for a sterile world where the order of knowledge tri triumphs
umphs triumphs over the potentialities and wonderous uncertainty of human
Lenny as moral agent confounds the computer Alpha GOs
questions with answers that defy classification; and as Lenny says,
to know the meaning of his answers is to destroy the logic by which
the machine perpetuates itself . which is what ultimately
Alphaville is presented as an inversion (what Lenny calls
mutant) of a world of feeling. The viewer understands this
when Lennys artistic and human values are imposed upon the
world of logic. In fact, one could say the substance of the movie
is a study of two moral spheres. Lenny kills only when he has to
and out of self-preservation; Alpha 60 impassively directs public
The central symbol of Lenny is an arrow implying linearity; at
the heart of Alpha 60 is a circle of light. This catalogueing of
contrasts could go on for many pages, but more important is that
_ they demonstrate the two mutually, alien worlds of art and science.
Science, as a kind of art (indeed, there is a grim beauty about
the creations of Alphaville), is, nevertheless, opposed to the
creations of art. The latter demonstrates an assumed mystery
in the universe which the science of Alphaville cannot tolerate
and must order. This is why Lennys predecessor, Henry Dickson,
succumbs to Alphaville, because he cannot impose his humanity
on the order. Likewise, the people of Alphaville die because their
unnatural order has been supplanted by natural disorder they
die the death of uncertainty just as Henry and nearly Lenny are
suffocated by the order.
Final conclusions about Alphaville are difficult after one
viewing. For the casual moviegoer, it will leave him ambivalent
-- intriguing in its original plot; bewildering in its cryptic
presentation. Nevertheless, it grows on this critic, and I am
tempted to say it is a masterpiece in its staggering complexity.
Certainly, Godard has never been more in control of his
materials, except perhaps in Contempt. But in Alphaville,
the pacing is quicker, and the gimmick, vignette style is more
integrated with plot than the earlier work. Coutardsphotography,
with its stunning close-ups and beautiful interplay of light and
shadow, remains breathtaking.
Thus, the movie is a triumph, for like a great lovel, it has made
its style an expression of intent.

bloc seating-.
where the action is
Jjj lace two posts at the end of a field. Put a cross
bar between them.
Draw some white lines in between and call it a
football field. Add 22 players in colorful uniforms
and blow the whistle.
You have a football game.
But the scrambling on the field for control of the
ball and the running for touchdowns offers little
action compared to the struggles that go on weeks
in advance for positions in the stands.
The entire stands controversy centers around
what is called preferred bloc seating.
Student groups with a guaranteed 25 members
wanting tickets can apply for bloc seating. All this
means is that the group will sit together in the stands.
It does not guarantee a special or privileged position.
Under present conditions, the President of the
Student Body has the authority to assign groups to
special areas in the stands.
Depending on the past president, several groups
have been receiving preferred bloc seating
that is, on or near the 50-yard line, in the center of
the stands.
For the upcoming season, Florida Blue Key is
probably the only group assured of preferred seats.
SG President Jacobs has vowed to place the question
of preferred seating for SG on a referendum in the
fall after the first couple of home games.
Still, bloc seating is not fair unless every group
has an equal chance to get the choice seats, or unless
the blocs are rotated so each group will have choice
seats once during the season.
If FBK, student government or any other group is
entitled to privileged seating at the football games,
where does this privilege end?
Next will we find sections of the Campus Club and
the Hub roped off and marked: Florida Blue Key
The entire concept of service to the student body
shouldnt be founded on who should get preferred
seating while denying the other 16,000 students an
equal opportunity for the better seats.
If service to the university and the students is
as altruistic as we are led to think, why the demand
for this special privilege?
What about basketball games, baseball games,
entertainment events, and even in the churches?
Will these be next on the list for privileged seating?
Whether or not this prerogative of the student
body president is exercised to allow other groups
privileged seating, the control should be passed to
the Leg Council which will more likely reflect the
students preferences than will the personal whims
of any student body president.
We think no groups other than the card section
should receive privileged football seating.
The Leg Council has the power to resolve this
annual jockeying for seats by placing seating ar arrangements
rangements arrangements in written law.
When the whistle blows this year, where will the
action be?
And where will you be sitting?

Florida politics
During the next four years the people of the state of Florida will
choose two men to represent them in the United States Senate. The
first race for the Senate seat of retiring Senator George Smathers
will be run in 1968.
Speculation as to the possible candidates who will vie for this
coveted office is a main topic of political conversation from Pensa Pensacola
cola Pensacola to Key West.
Many names have been cast into the ring as possible contenders in
the upcoming political conflict. Some of the men mentioned would have
a very good chance. Others should save their money and time.
One candidate who would be wise to remain frugal with money and
time is Charles Bennett, U. S. Congressman from Jacksonville.
Bennett is no doubt a judicious and competent congressman. How However,
ever, However, he would make poor senatorial material. Senatorial material,
not in the sense of the quality of his work if elected, but poor in the
sense of state-wide appeal and as a candidate.
Bennetts home is Jacksonville and it is doubtful that he is known
further south than Orlando. His distinction as a legislator is culmi culminated
nated culminated in the fact that he has been in attendance for every role-call vote
in the House of Representatives since his election almost 14 years ago.
This fact, no doubt, has much appeal with his constituents in Jack Jacksonville;
sonville; Jacksonville; but the political sex-appeal of 100 per cent voting attendance
is hardly palatable past the Duval county line.
Rep. Bennett should also f ake into consideration the possible, nay
the imminently probable, candidates he will have to face in 1968.
Tom Adams, for one, will most probably run very strong all over
the state. Adams will have nothing to loose and everything to gain by
running in 6B as he will be secretary of state until 1970. If Adams
should lose in 6B he will have established a good name for himself
to run in 1970 for Senator Hollands seat.
Another very possible candidate is Rep. Claude Pepper of Miami.
Pepper, who was ousted by Smathers in 1952 feels that he has a claim
to that seat and he means to take it back. Pepper will have a strong
voting base to draw from as there are no other candidates running
from the Miami area at this time.
And last, but not least, in the field of most probable candidates
is former governor Leoy Collins. Collins has made a name for him himself
self himself both in Washington and Florida. He has had much favorable news newspaper
paper newspaper coverage (not all being warranted), and he will undoubtedly have
copious support from the powers-that-be in our nations capital.
Other dark-horse candidates could be: Scott Kelly, Rep. Sam
Gibbons of Tampa, and a strong Republican possibility . Congress Congressman
man Congressman Ed Gurney of Orlando. If one might stretch his imagination a bit
the image of D. R. (Billy) Matthews might flash into view as a possible
The best advice Rep. Bennett could ever take is summarized very
briefly in that old adage: Look before you leap.

Campus Perspective
Since January of this year, former Alligator editor
and defeated presidential candidate Ernie Litz has
seemingly had a carte blanche license to attack SG.
I have examined both the attacks and their source
and feel both students and SG are being treated un unfairly
fairly unfairly by the sometimes genuinely concerned, but
always ambitious Litz.
First of all, examine Litz charges in light of
additional facts known, but not reported by this rebel
member of SGs cabinet.
Litz has frequently asked in his column, Where is
Buddy Jacobs? Student body president Buddy Jacobs
keeps office hours from 2:00 to 5:30 daily and has
done so every week since his election with one ex exception.

Charges of lack of leadership by Jacobs are the
most serious and least substantiated charges. Ja Jacobs
cobs Jacobs has seized the initiative in such crucial areas
as multi-level parking, development of Camp Wau Wauburg,
burg, Wauburg, a new modern infirmary, and more student
participation on faculty-dominated committees.
Litz asks why Jacobs isnt stomping Florida on
behalf of UF. But his speaking engagements include
the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce, the At Atlanta
lanta Atlanta Alumni Association and the executive council
of the Alumni Association.
The once defeated presidential aspirant said in
one of his columns that he could name at least half
a dozen requests Jacobs has failed to act upon. But
Litz has failed to name even one.
Litz has offered himself to the electorate once and
he hasnt denied he will do so again next Spring.
Most potential office seekers are either in some
office alreading building a record of achievement or
are on the outside hollering for the opportunity.
Litz is unique in that he is trying to do both.
We have already examined Litzs role as a dis dissenter.

office holder.
Last spring the Apathy standard bearer attacked
the infirmary, casting a shadow of doubt on its fi financial
nancial financial management. Litz promised to come across
with the facts. To this date he never has.
What has Litz DONE since taking office as secre secretary
tary secretary of off-campus housing? I have used his own
written reports submitted to Jacobs as the source.
In his two page introduction in his mid-year report,
Litz spends 76 per cent of the lines telling Jacobs
how disgusted he (Litz) is with the performance
of the rest of the cabinet.
Litz 10 points of progress in his report represent
a formidable array of ideas and little actual work be beyond
yond beyond the idea stage.
His primary project, a survey of off-campus
housing, has been started and will be completed in
the fall when the money is available. This completed
survey could lead to real action.
Since the beginning of the summer Litz has con contributed
tributed contributed little to Jacobs administration.
Much of what Litz has stood for is admirable.
Clean-up of campus politics and broadening the
scope of SG service. How much better would his
impact have been, if it haa not been tarnished with
frustrated ambitions and accusations.
Perhaps the potential 1967 presidential candidate
would explain his position to the student body. Here
are some questions that students have a right to know
about Litz.
Why hasnt he ever presented the facts about
the infirmary?
What were the half a dozen requests that
Buddy Jacobs never took care of?
Why did Alligator editor Gene Nail have to ask
you to raise the level of your column because it
it had become so personal?
During the past campaign Litz told,audiences he
would take the mouse ears off student government.
With all the quack, quack, we may wonder if he isnt
trying to replace Mousism with Donald Duckism.

an appeal for blood

Hils Is an appeal for blood con contributions
tributions contributions in the name of the late
Dr. Helcio Martins, Interim Asso Associate
ciate Associate Professor of Portuguese and
Spanish at this university from
Sept. 1964 to Dec. 1965, who died
on Feb. 9, 1966, of aplastic anemia,
in his native city, Rio de Janeiro,
Brazil, at the age of 37.
While he was with us in Gaines Gainesville,
ville, Gainesville, Dr. Martins received and
paid for 29 blood transfusions at
the University Hospital. The Blood
Bank at the Hospital is eager to
have the blood replaced and will
issue refunds to Dr. Martins widow
for each unit contributed in his
name; the refunds will be grate gratefully
fully gratefully received as partial repay repayment

dollars of medical expenses in incurred

poet asks "why war?"
The following poem is sent to you in an attempt to put forth some
of the possible reasons why men go to war.
Why is it that men will go and fight
when they believe war not right?
Is it because these men fear
to lose that which they hold dear
or, of being placed in a cowards light?
Is it that men would rather be thought
to hold convictions which they do not
than to express the things that they feel
things which give meaning, and make life real
or, are men afraid to say I havent fought?
Is it that men are really brave
the ones for whose country, their lives they gave
or, were these men duped into a cause
to protect themselves from the laws
of the country that they had been trying to save?
Who really knows why men do
things which will make relatives blue?
Who really knows why men act?
Is it from love, or lack of tact
to express the beliefs they hold true?
The answer cannot be found unless
one stops and considers the horrible mess
which would result if and when
this country was taken by other men,
leaving me only one thing to say

illness while he was here. Thirteen
units have already been contri contributed,

As many of us know, Dr. Martins
was a dedicated and inspiring
teacher, a superb scholar, and a
gentle, patient, sincere friend.
Even while seriously ill during the
last months he was in Gainesville,
he gave generously of his time
and talents to students and collea colleagues,
gues, colleagues, and he is remembered with
admiration and affection by all
who knew him. His premature
death tragically cut short a dis distinguished

We hope that those who are able

Martins name to the University

Gator athletic teams competing in eight intercollegiate sports during
1965-66 ran up 60-1/2 points under an SEC scoring system to edge
