2 UF Students Nabbed
With Huge Pot Stock

Alligator Executive Editor
Two UF students were among
the six persons arrested Friday
afternoon, when officers of the
Alachua County Sheriffs
Department raided a Gainesville
rooming house and confiscated
80 pounds of marijuana worth
more than $25,000.
Robert M. Fine, 4JM, from
Bridgeport, Conn., and John
Russell Kirkland, 2UC, from
Orlando, offered no resistance
when eight officers, led by
Sheriffs Captain Ronald E.
Stanley, entered their room at
405 NE 5 Ave. at 4:50 p.m. and
placed them under arrest.
Fine was charged with
possession of marijuana and
Kirkland was charged with the
sale of marijuana.
The arrests, which Stanley
said were the result of two
months of investigation, also
netted sheriffs deputies $9,000
in cash, and two automobiles.
Those arrested were:
- Robert Fine, 22, Bridgeport,
Conn. Fine lives in Apt. 96 at
the French Quarter, 999 SW
16th Ave. He is a fourth-year
journalism student and is
scheduled to graduate in August.

The UF commencement speaker, addressing nearly 8,000 people in
Florida Field Saturday, talked about the assassinated Senator Robert
F. Kennedy after scrapping a speech on Not Education But Human
Development earlier in the week.
Dr. Paul A. Miller, assistant secretary of education in the
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, described Kennedy as
a tousled headed leader, caring deeply about what most of us did
too little.
That Robert Kennedy, burdened with the violent loss of others he
loved, could be consumed similarly, is so shattering to the

Action Conference Opens
With Hope, Apprehension

Alligator Nowi Editor
UF President Stephen C. OConnells Action
Conference will meet for the first time
Wednesday, carrying with it both high hopes
and 1 touches of pessimism among the
participants ofthe conference.
The members of the group, 25 persons each
representing the administration, faculty and
'student body, will decide Wednesday exactly
what problems relating to the university will be
studied. The groups will then be divided into
task force committees to pursue each
Optimism has been voiced for the

commencement covenant that we can only pray together for the
return to us of what it means to be an American, Miller said.
Miller was introduced by UF President Stephen C. OConnell, who
also offered remarks about Kennedy and apologized for being unable
to cancel commencement exercises in deference to Kennedys funeral.
After speaking about Kennedy, Miller described events leading to
what he called a state of isolation in the United States, events which
came when Americans began to shirk their responsibilities, at both
national and local levels.
It began, he said, when we started to pile up beer cans in public
parks, to tolerate fumes and smoke, to walk on dirty sidewalks, to
turn cities into jungles because we gave no time to loving them.
It began, he continued, when we learned how to get people to
buy things they didnt need, things planned carefully to wear out,
when we sited junkyards in handy places and set up markets to sell
the sleaziest of imitations.
It started when we started to eat and drink too much and exercise
too little.... to park an automobile in a flower bed rather than walk
a city block, to arrange great spectacles about corruption in public
life, yet produce few great moral advances.
We shall have to learn something of the sophistication and
complexity of American society, of how general and interdependent
its problems, how specific and discrete its solutions, he said.
We shall have to once and for all believe that it is ridiculous that a
fifth of our people live in poverty, and the choice is hard upon us
whether or not to embark on a great national tithing in order to cut
out the malice, discrimination, the hunger, cheapness, violence,

Bob Shetterly, chairman of the local chapter

bureaucracy in more committees.

not as a subversion of individuality but as a means of reaching a
strength beyond ourselves.

Above all, Click continued, this thing
deserves a chance. It has great potential, but it
has problems to overcome. The problems
would mainly involve having the different
segments of the campus come to work together.

said Corbin Carnell, assistant professor of
English, but having the conference is a sound
idea. Its evidence of President OConnells
concern. He added that he would like to see
curriculum reform and also a reapportionment
of the faculty senate to give lower faculty
members more representation.
Dr. Richard Hiers, associate professor of

some tangible and significant gains will come

whether there will be change.

Local Gun Lovers Urge
Stiffer Gun Legislation

By Stays Hulsey
Alligator Copy Editor
Existing gun control laws
need to be stiffened, but this
will not prevent murders and
violence, several Gainesville gun
lovers said Sunday.
Existing gun laws didnt
prevent Robert Kennedy from
being killed, said George R.
Freeman, assistant director of
the UF Agriculture Experiment
The law alone wont bring
us to our senses, he said. The
people of this country need a
change in values.
Freeman, who is an avid
hunter and an owner of guns,
said a gun law is a step in the
right direction, but people who
want guns will get them anyway
despite a gun control law.
-A \, /
v There are other ways to.kill
a person, he said. The law
needs to be tougher than it is at
present, but legislation alone will
not prevent killing with guns.
Freeman said he believes gun
laws penalize game hunters and
other responsible users of guns,
but he is opposed to mail order
He said he would be willing
to give up all his guns, if
necessary, in order to save one
single life.
James S. Quincy, a
Gainesville attorney who owns
guns and hunts, said he does not
believe gun control laws are the

answer to preventing murders
with guns.
A depraved person will get a
gun somehow if he wants it,
said Quincy.
Quincy said strict gun control
laws deprive people of the right
of protection by keeping guns in
their homes, and also penalizes
people who use guns for
Proper gun registration laws
are helpful, he said, but I am
opposed to a strict gun law.
Quincy said he is opposed to
mail order guns, but believes
people should be able to buy
guns with proper registration.
A stiffening of gun laws is
favored by Dr. Guy S. Miles, a
UF English professor, who owns
a farm outside Gainesville.
People are too free with

hunters near his farm sometimes
shoot across the road or shoot at
his cattle.
Existing gun laws are too
lax, said Miles. A stiffening of
gun laws is in the right
direction towaiS controlling
A Gainesville antique gun
collector, Louis C. Goolsby, is
another who does not believe
gun control laws will prevent
guns from killing people.
No amount of protection
can save a person from my
hate, said Goolsby, if 1 want
to kill him.
I own thousands of dollars
worth of guns, he said, but I
would throw them all away if it
would save a single life.

No Immediate Plans
For Parking Fees

Contrary to reports of collecting a fee for campus parking UF
officials said last week there are no immediate plans for such action.
They were quick to point out, however, the critical problems of
campus parking as the University continues to grow and additional
buildings fill in vacant space.
A study of the parking problem, along with similar problems of
traffic on and off the campus, has been under way for several months
by Arnold Butt, 1 associate director *of campus planning. He said
Wednesday he expects to have a final report ready in September.
The study will present data on surface and structure parking, main
thoroughfares, pedestrian ways and proposals for moving vehicular
traffic to and from the campus as well as on campus streets.
The study thus far, he said, has convinced him solution to the
parking problem in a reasonable manner will require some kind of fee
system. Income from such a system will be needed for building
additional surface or structure parking facilities and maintaining them.
Also, these funds would be used to operate an intra-campus bus line
from surrounding parking facilities to the center of the campus.
Butt called attention to a national survey of 118 educational
institutions in which 68 per cent charge for campus parking.
These figures vary for students from $5 to SIS per year for
commuters and S2O to S2S per year for resident students. Fees for
faculty and staff range as high as sllO per year.
Examples include:
Illinois, S6O; UCLA, $72; Wisconsin, $36; Minnesota, $110;
Washington, S4O, and Pennsylvania, SSO. Student cars are not
permitted on the University of Illinois campus during the daytime
class periods.
Butt that the broad concept of campus planners is to
keep a pedestrian campus and not permit the automobile to destroy
the natural beauty of university grounds.

Wednesdays scheduled meeting of UF
President Stephen C. OConnells Action
Conference could be the beginning of mean meaningful
ingful meaningful communication between widely-split
elements on this campus.
Let us hope it will be.
In the past few months we have seen the
traditional split between college students,
faculty, and administration slowly and
painfully widen, with each group growing
more and more tense, cynical, and
frustrated. Each side seems to be growing
more and more distrustful of the others and
less willing to listen to the others.
The great mass of students, faculty and
administration have stood iff the middle,
understanding little of the battle going on
around them.
But in the stomach of all, activists or not,
lay a hard core of uneasiness and a distaste
Gun Control:
The tragic assassination last week of Sen.
Robert F. Kennedy was another outward
symptom of Americas festering cancer, a
disease of hate which threatens to rot the
very core of our societys fiber.
America is a sadder but probably no more
wiser nation today. It has had another
dedicated public leader cruelly snatched
from its embrace.
Robert Kennedys death was the child of
a society which seems bent on solving its
problems with bullets instead of ballots,
with rifles instead of petitions.
Political assassination is not new, either to
this nation or to the world. But this senseless
murder of public leaders with whom we may
disagree is becoming more frequent than at
any previous time in history.
The roll call of political murders in this
decade alone is terrifying: President John F.
Kennedy, Medgar Evers, Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr., George Lincoln Rockwell, Sen.
Robert F. Kennedy.
And those are just the prominent names.
Americans commit homicide on other
Americans at the rate of 5,000 each year,
and the list is growing.
A shocked nation, horrified at its own
violence, asked itself last week: Why?
Certainly, if we are to cure the cancer
before it decimates us, we will have to
answer that question. But even more
important right now is, How can we stop
this senseless slaugher?
We believe one step however tenuous
and faltering is gun control legislation
which, while not restricting the serious
sportsman, will make getting a gun difficult
for the lunatic who would use it for murder.

Resurrection City has not been a very happy place

Its already a mess. The area
inside the snow fence which

The statue of Abe Lincoln looks out today on
the stockade in the park alongside his memorial. All
night long a light shines on his rugged features, and
his eyes have the appearance of never sleeping as he
looks out on the city housing the descendants of
those stockade residents of one hundred years ago.

The days of Jim Crow are over. But do they
have the equal right to make a living? Are they
permitted to enter the skilled labor unions? Are the
cards stacked against them when it comes to the
land laws?
Above all, are they forced off the land which
they have plowed and hoed and cultivated through
the generations? The answers are contained in a
thick green volume entitled Department of
Agriculture and Related Agencies Appropriations
Fiscal Year 1968, which contains the names of
the big farmers who are subsidized by the rest of us
for keeping their land idle. The book does not
contain the names of the poor people who are
thereby forced off the land.
Thumbing through these pages, the answer is
definitely yes. The cards are stacked against the
poor people of the South. The laws are written so
they favor the big landowner, not the tenant farmer
who is made homeless by the laws written by a
Congress where the key committee chairmanships,
the power establishment, stem from rural areas of
the United States.
Thumbing through the subsidy payments made
to cotton plantation owners in Mississippi, you get
some idea of how things are stacked against the
poor people. In Sunflower County there is Mrs.
Eastland, wife of the Senator from Mississippi, who,
gets 5129,977 in one year for cutting back cotton
acreage. There is also W.D. Patterson, who gets
567,600; plus many, many more.

Americas Greatness
In Graduates Hands
To the 1968 graduating class
University of Florida
Few moments equal the joy, the satisfaction, and the fulfillment of
graduation. It is a personal and permanent victory, an honor to last a
lifetime. To each of you I extend my sincere congratulations.
The time is past when our national interests could be served by a
few who elected to make their countrys affairs their own. The
complexity of our age and the particular burden history has thrust
upon us to preserve freedom where it exists and to foster it where it
does not demands every American hand and every American heart.
The greatest responsibility falls to those who have the most to give..
I cannot tell you the extent of Americas influence in shaping the
new order of world affairs though I believe it will be great.
I cannot measure our national ability to abolish ignorance and
sickness and injustice wherever these ancient enemies degrade
humanity though I believe it is limitless.
1 cannot predict that Americas future will match and exceed the
brilliance of her past though I believe it will.
The answers will not come in my lifetime, but in the future your
future. I am confident that you who have proved your ability to
achieve, to endure, and to win, will serve that future with distinction.

it may prove necessary) to enact
further civil rights acts, gun
control laws or even some kind
of subversive control bills.
But hypothetical
explanations of the peculiarly
American version of the human
condition are readily available in
more detailed and more useful
forms than virtually meaningless
generalities. They may be found,
for instance, in the research
publications of social scientists,
in the rhetoric of the new left
and of the new poor, and in
the popular literature from the
Atlantic Monthly and National
Review to the Time essay.
The time has long since
passed for concerned Americans
to demand that our leaders
assume the risk of making
mistakes by acting to
simultaneously inform
themselves as to the likely causes
of our unfortunate symptons,
and move resolutely toward
correcting them.
Our survival as a society, and
thir survival as its leaders, is by
now clearly at stake.

and monkeys by Kaufman and
Dr. Antonio Gassett, a resident
in ophthalmology in the College
of Medicine. Four months later,
the plastic coverings are still in
place and show no irritation.
The technique is still
experimental, Kaufman
pointed out. We dont know
yet how long the lens will stay in
place or what late changes may
occur in the eye, but it looks
promising. Even if the glue
should wear away, the epithelial
tissue grows over the edges of
the lens like a collar, and may
hold the lens in place. If the
EKP should cause some
difficulty, it can easily be lifted

end to UFs athletics program.
In fact, this summer promises to
be the biggest ever for the
Gators, as Florida will try to
sweep the NCAA and AAU
meets being held this summer
around the country. The prize
for the top competitors is a
chance for a berth on the US
Olympic teams for this years
UFs award hunting starts
tomorrow as Coach Bill Potters
tennis team heads for Lexington,
Ky. and the Eastern
Intercollegiate Championships.
UF won the SEC title, but now
faces top competition from the
northern half of the country.
Still, UF is ranked as one of the
top teams in the country, and
stands an excellent opportunity
of sweeping this meet.
Thursday, the track team
places their seven finest
members against the nations
best as the Gators vie in the
NCAA tournament in Berkeley.

the year* the Gators have been
waiting for.
UFs prospects have to be
considered at least fair for
placing athletes in competition
for the UJS. team. UFs tennis
team is considered as one of the
best, and the Gators triple
threat, Armi Neely, Jamie
Pressly, and Greg Hilley, are all
highly touted as prospects.
In track, the Gators making
the trip to California have all
more than qualified for the
NCAA tourney. UF has taken
honors at the top meets in the
country this year, including
John Mortons first place in the
discus at the Drake Meet earlier
in the season.
Florida repeated two
All-Americans in swimming on
the national squad this year, and
the possibility of several more is
not ruled out. Still, even if these
two are the only ones to finish
on the squad, Steve Macri and
Barry Russo might well also
claim spots in the Olympics.
Finally, in another sport, Jose
Sasek is under consideration for
a spot with the US Fencing
team. This has been an


intramural sport at UF. but
Sasek has compiled enough
points 1 through the team's
