We hope all students who have experienced problems with tickets
will come to the meeting and let us know what they are, Wilkin said.
He said many students have problems but dont tell the right
people about them.
How can they expect us to know what the problem are if were
not told, he said.
Shortages of date and regular tickets was one of the main problems
students faced this year.
At the Mississippi State game, the first one played on campus,
several students complained they were issued tickets for seats which
didnt exist. The problem also occurred at the Tulane game, a week
Another problem during the season was that of ticket scalping by
UF football players. Scalping means selling a ticket for more than it
originally cost.
On Thursday, Oct. 24, a week before homecoming 1,200
non-student date tickets were sold within 45 minutes before the
windows were closed. That number was the quota set by the athletic
department to be sold that day. Several thousand students were
standing in line when the windows were closed.
One change which may be made next year, Wilkin said, is raising
the prices of date tickets from $3 to $6, the general admission price.
Taylor, Goodrich and Wilkin will meet with Ray Dorman,
assistant to the director of athletics, Wednesday morning. Dorman is
in charge of student ticket distrubution.
I hope by talking to students Tuesday night we will have a good
idea of the things they want, Wilkin said.

to cover her maternity expenses to grey
market placements made by an
intermediary other than a licensed
adoption agency. This could be a doctor,
minister or an attorney.
The basic difference between so-called
independent and agency adoption
procedure is that an approved agency tries
to match the child to the adoptive parents,
while independent adoption groups rarely
have facilities for this selection and place
the child where ever there is money enough
to pay the fee.,
As one caseworker put it, I urge the
girl who has decided to give up her baby to
use an official adoption agency. From this
source there is no pressure. She has until
the last moment to change her mind, but
after that it is with the clear understanding
that the decision is irrevocable.
Once a girl considers agency adoption,
she is scheduled for an interview with a
caseworker with such an agency as the
Childrens Home Society, located in a quiet
section of Miami.

After the unwed mother has given birth
and she has decided to give her child up f or
adoption, she must sign surrender papers.
In Florida, these papers go through a
juvenile court, which in turn gives the
agency permanent custody of the child.
The agency then has the legal right to place
the baby in an adoptive home and after a
reasonable length of time, to consent to
legal adoption.
It is not usually necessary for the
natural mother to appear in court. She may
be asked to appear privately before the
judge so that he is convinced that she is
releasing the baby voluntarily.

The University of Colorado board of regents voted last Friday to

The action came after the SDS held a national council meeting on
campus. SDS barred TV news cameramen and tape recorders at the
meeting in defiance of a regents ruling for unrestricted news coverage.
The dismissal at Colorado shouldnt affect the situation at UF
according to J.T. Hennessey, assistant dean of student affairs.
The SSOC (Southern Student Organization Committee), formally
the SDS-SSOC, is still seeking recognition from the Student
Organization and Social Affairs Committee.
Ruling on SSOC is still under consideration, Hennessey said.
The Student Organization and Social Affairs Committee must rule
on every organization that seeks recognition at UF. At this time they
havent come out of committee.
The Student Organization and Social Affairs Committee is
composed of four student members and five faculty members.
The committee should announce a decision within a week
concerning recognition of SSOC said Hennessey.

Vietnam As I See It

(EDITORS NOTE: This is the conclusion of an
eleven part series on Vietnam by Alligator Special
Writer Rick Benson. Benson, recently returned from
Vietnam himself, examines his feelings and the
feelings of those about him about the war and the
people of Vietnam.)
Alligator Special Writer
QUANG TRI, Vietnam The war had received
bad reviews before I came over here, and during my
seven months of traveling about the country, I cant
help but see why.
The Vietnam war has come at a time when
battles are no longer analyzed over a generals map
or later read about in a book, but see and discussed
day by day on television and in print by everyone
concerned. When fighting was going on to no lesser
or greater degree throughout the country, certain
areas controlled the headlines until they lost their
newsworthiness. Remember Con Thien, Khe Sanh,
and A Shau Valley? In short, the war has become
media orienated.
The average soldier, both enlisted and officer
alike, offers a myriad of reasons for being here, with
little or no understanding why, and an equal lack Os
concern for the Vietnamese people, tend, and
culture. For me, I came to see what combat was
really see what it takes, one Army artillery
officer said.
While'riding with a Negro soldier along Highway
1, it seemed that he was truly hi the drivers seat now
as he drove his truck 20 miles over the speed limit,
waving his fist and profaning every Vietnamese who
happened to slow him down or get in his way. He
could now dominate a people who didnt
understand him, and whose natural acquiescence
allowed him to get away with it.
Paradoxically, the same soldier passed out all the
candy he had along the route, and even got out of
his truck once to chase away a couple of boys trying
to take away the candy he had thrown to a little
Another aspect of the war is that it is not being
fought by the professional soldier. The draftee has a
personal countdown of the war when he arrives:
365 days and sometimes less. This is not to discredit
the performance of a conscript, since it is generally
agreed that he makes the best soldier because of his
wanting to get out of the service after his two years.
It adds to his strong sense of survival on the
Yet this also contributes to the apathy of the war
since what happens here after he leaves is of little or
no concern to him.

the US Navy driver as he passed through a crowded
thoroughfare in DaNang with his pick-up truck.
What made the casual statement so shocking was the
fact he was not talking about a NVA soldier or a
VC, but a Vietnamese civilian. He already boasted
of hitting one gook with his truck after making
the mindless statement that They (Vietnamese)
wouldnt last ten minutes in New York City.
The sailors attitude is prevalent among many
servicemen here who blame the Vietnamese for the
misfortune of being sent to their country, and every
other ill during their 12-month stay.
The Vietnamese are stamped inferior because
they are smaller, have strange customs, and dont

itself when you see Vietnamese of both sexes

Strike Cripples Commuter Line

Island Railroad trainmen, fearing
loss of overtime pay, closed
down the nations largest
commuter line with a wildcat
strike Monday, inconveniencing
90,000 riders and creating a
jumbo traffic jam on Long
The wildcat strike began at
midnight, one minute before the
the railroads first major new
timetable in 20 years was to
have gone into effect. It would
have reduced total train time
about 47 hours a week arid cost
the trainmen an estimated
$200,000 annually in overtime.
Harold Pryor, general
chairman of the Brotherhood of
Railroad Trainmens Local 517,
said management had given
insufficient advance notice of
the new timetable and the
trainmen had not had time to
study it. He said he had done
everything in his power to urge
my members to comply with a
Brooklyn Federal Court
injunction barring a strike last
Friday but they had decided not
to work on an individual basis.
Federal Judge Walter
Bruchhausen signed an order
against Pryor and ordered him to
appear in court Monday in
response to an application by
railroad attorney James
Gallagher. The action was
speeded up in hope of getting
some trains moving to ease the
evening rush hour.

Library After Closing

Perhaps it was the section we were sitting in that
made us feel like hardened criminals banking.
Books and books on banking brought to mind
famous bank criminals Baby Face Nelson, Bonnie
and Clyde, John Dillinger.
But then we werent there to rob a bank just a
library. But then we werent really there to rob a
library, just to see if it could be done.
It had been done before. Just a month ago. And
it had been successful. For the thief of over $2,000
worth of equipment had not been apprehended.
And had the undergraduate library taken heed
and increased its security? No. Still no night
security guard. Still no final check to see if the
library was completely empty.
So there we sat in a comer of the third floor, not
really hiding, just sitting looking at banking books
and waiting for the final buzzer at 11 p.m.
announcing closing.
And it came. And everyone left. But us. We sat
looking at banking books. And the lights went out
and suddenly the printed words were swallowed
into the darkness.
And we sat engulfed in this unaccustomed
darkness for an hour waiting for the ground floor to
close. The ticking of our synchronized watches, the
beating of our hearts. Would these infractions of the
tomb-like silence give us away?
No. For no one cared enough to check at closing,
surely they wouldnt now. They didnt.
Perhaps it was curiosity that caused us to tip-toe
first to the room where the stereo equipment was

day long seven days a week is
just not enough, even though my
coach says that walking is about
the best exercise you can find.
But I disregard the facts
important to my health.
Because of my selfishness Im
in danger of being dropped from
PE. I got a letter saying so. This
means I would have to suffer
through the remainder of the
quarter without doing exercises
or running track! I don't know
how I could live without them,
but I sure would like to find out.
Now I hear that Bruce Harlan,
Secretary of Student Activities is
presenting a resolution in
Student Government to do away
with mandatory PE. Its nice to
know that hes selfish too. Bruce
and I arent lonely.
The campus is being overrun
by selfish freshmen and
sophomores. They are out to
destroy themselves. What can be
I have a suggestion. How
about letting them kill
themselves off by dropping PE.
Wouldnt that be fitting
punishment for selfish people.

stolen last month. The weak beam of our flashlight
spotlighted nervous fingers trying the handle it
was locked.
One foot and then the other, we edged our way
down the back steps to the second floor. And then
it dawned on us. Why be quiet? They didnt care we
wore locked in here, they didnt care we were here
now. Hell, why the tip-toing? The place was ours.
Ours for the night. e
As we passed by typewriters, furniture, paintings,
books, and equipment, we envisioned ourselves
would-be thieves. We made our way to the well-lit
first floor.
And the windows were locked. Just a fraction of
an inch between us and freedom. Us and the cold
outdoors. Us and safety. But wait, there is a hole in
the window ledge which seems to be connected with
the window. A crank would do it.
And a crank did it. For just like in a Grade B
movie the trespassers moved in on the most obvious
spot the librarians shelf. And, in full view, there
was the crank.
It fit and the window creaked open. We returned
the crank, in an unthief-like gesture and slipped out
the window. The screen fell out of its holdings
Symbolic of the whole faulty library. Rotten as the
rules that guard it.
And we left, awaiting punishment for our crime
against society, our dastardly deed against the UF,
our condemnation. But we didnt care, we had
already proven something.


Is Honor Dead?

Is honor dead?
Perhaps not. But as a system designed to
prevent cheating at the UF, it appears at
least to be dormant.
UFs Honor Code, initiated in 1914, is
said to rest upon certain basic principles.
Among these, says the The University
Record (undergraduate catalog), are the
conviction that self-discipline is the greatest
builder of character, that responsibility is a
prerequisite of self-respect and that these are
essential to the highest type of education.
It looks good on paper. But in reality,
there is far more honor in the system than
there is in the students for whom honor is
supposed to be away of academic life.
Take for example a recent ex t ensive
psychological survey which reported that
more than 40 per cent of the students would
cheat if they were certain they would not be
For them, honor as away of life is a very
sick joke.
For many of them, the UFs honor
system, time-honored though it may be, is
their guarantee of cheating with
immunity. Simply because violations are
not reported.
Or do the figures he?
Perhaps the truth is that an overwhelming
majority of UFs students the silent mass,
if you will is deeply committed to the
principles and enforcement of the honor
Or perhaps their commitment is ready
only fear of being turned in by other
Perhaps cheating, the most serious
violation of the code in terms of number of
people affected, is practiced only by a
shrewd, dishonest few.
Regardless of which perhaps is the
correct one, the honor code is violated, with
immunity, everyday. Students cheat on
tests, students steal everything stealable,
students deliberately cash bum checks all
violations of the code as it presently exists.

For those who care, the question is
Why do students cheat? What is wrong
with the educational process which forces
them to view cheating as the only method
to insure success? Why dont other students
report violators to the Honor Court for
punishment? Why is honor asleep?
Do students sneer at honor because honor
has left the American people? Is the sickness
of UFs honor system a microcosm of a
society in which people go out of their way
to gyp their government out of taxes or to
keep the money discovered in a lost wallet
or purse?
Have we, as a people, put too high a price
on the ugly head of success?
If the university intends to continue
under the auspices of a system based on
individual integrity, these questions must be
asked. And answered.
For the reality is inescapable: The Honor
System is not working.
And if honor is dead because values have
changed, then the system should be scrapped
and the facade discontinued.
UF students fill face that choice in the
Spring elections. Student Body President
Clyde Taylor and Honor Court Chancellor
Pete Zinober have vowed to place the fate of
the Honor System on the chopping block.
In addition to a referendum on keeping
or abolishing Student Government in its
present form, students will be asked to
decide a similar question on the Honor
System at the polls in April.
The questions involved, questions which
lie at the very roots of how people live with
other people, should be given more than
passing examination.
Between now and April, UF students
should decide the value of honor in an
academic community.
And then they should vote their

The author of the above is one Paul
Krassner, the editor and chief writer
for a leading underground monthly,
'The Realist," a publication he
himself labels, among other things, the
"magazine of the lunatic fringe." I
mention the man only in passing and
won't bother to delve into his
philosophies, because the target now
is the feeling expressed above, and it
matters little who offered it.
I'd just completed one of the many
arduous treks from the stadium to
13th St. that so confound my class
schedule and had finally paused to
relax when my eyes feel upon
Krassner's words buried within a
recent copy of Life. They settled on
my tired head and I hardly noticed.
Then, for some reason, I read the
thing again and suddenly I
un-numbed. Who knows why, but my
mind zapped back to the sights and
sounds of that "cross campus jaunt"
and for the first time in two years the
combinations clicked, at last making
some sense of the nature of this place.
Little connection between the
quote from Life and Florida li.?
Maybe. But then, it could be that
Krassner's thoughts hint at what I saw
or didn't see in those passing faces
bustling from class to class.

Tomorrow, or whenever, take a
look at these faces. Look for a bit of
Krassner's compassion or for a
kindling spark "trying to understand."
Look into any pair of eyes and see if

they can keep from flinching their
attention elsewhere. Try smiling and
wait anxiously for someone to
respond in a like manner. Keep your
specs clean for a single soul who
appears "glad to be alive just feeling
(and) sensing." And for the clincher,
wear something out-of-bounds and
make note of the open tolerance and
understanding that greet you.
It's all far from heartening, no
matter how you explain your
observations. Okay, so all those faces
were in hurry do we all turn off our
insides when our bodies accelerate?
Okay, so nobody's expected to open
up to strangers but then, strangers are
strangers because we've failed so far to
try opening them. We all have our
"downs" when we're less than
agreeable but do we have them
simultaneously and don't "ups" come
along occasionally? The "megaversity"
hardens us probably, but whose fault
is that? Okay, so maybe we're lost in
thought and don't notice the bodies
around us possibly, but it's doubtful
that this one occurs too frequently.
Now, all this sounds contrived, I'm
sure "mountains from molehills"
and is all but a sermon, and yet it's a
bit disquieting when in just two short

weeks even the wide eyes of the
freshmen have begun to narrow. And
if checking out passersby isn't enough,
look at us all in other situations in
class, at parties & on dates. A little
different, but aren't there inklings of
these same symptoms?
It would be stretching a point to
argue that these are a part of
conditions existing soley on the U of

what causes them? If it isn't the
campus that chills, then there must be
something in the air. Either that or
they're natural and Mr. Krassner
TRULY is expressing the feelings of a
"lunatic fringe."
Few would suggest any hope for

as any of us can remember so there'll
be no conclusions made here. In
passing, though, it might do well to
look into some further thought on the

Harold B. Bachman
Director of Bands, Emeritus
University of Florida

As one who has been playing in
and leading bands in both the North
and the South, including military
bands overseas in two world wars,
for over sixty years, I am concerned
that DIXIE, one of the most spirited
American marching tunes, has again
become a subject of controversy.
The President of a great University
has instructed his band to quit
playing DIXIE, and classes it among
other Confederate symbols which he
states some people "embrace as an
anachronistic expression of their

I can say more than you want to

when you slip away tomorrow to cry
at the cemetery though no one you
know is buried there, and when you
go down to the railway and watch
the train go by at midnight? A light

a promise slips away. (I could try to
smile when I say goodbye if you
like.) As long as the hills go rolling
you will be running up and down.
Here is a pile of leaves that fell
from a tree. Jump into them and
scatter them; destroy the work that

reassurances, 'There, there Captain.

This followed incidents at several
high schools where the public display
of the Confederate flag and the
playing of DIXIE was said to have
triggered conflicts between Negro

certain that the causes of the

disturbances lie much deeper than
these outward symbols and will not
be settled either by playing or not
playing DIXIE.

the history and traditions
surrounding the song DIXIE.
In response to an article in the
University paper saying that the
playing of DIXIE was a tradition at
the University of Florida, two
University professors replied:
"This is utter
nonsense. Other old,
Southern traditions
such as lynching,
disenfranchisement of
blacks, and riding in
the back seats of
busses -- have
subsequently been
reevaluated and found
lacking in their social
merits. 'DIXIE' is but
another such
institution and a
constant reminder to
many of good, old
Southern racism."
DIXIE I What a history this old
tune, which some authorities have
said "is probably the most genuine
American song we posess," has had.
It's origin is well-documented. The
composer, Daniel Decatur Emmett,
was bom in Ohio, a member of a
pioneer Irish-American family. He
received his musical training during
service in the Army and as a member
of circus bands. He wrote this song,
and many others, while a member of
Bryant's Minstrels, a popular show
troupe of the time. It was first sung
at a performance by this company in
New York City on April 4, 1859.
The song was an immediate success
and it was soon being played and
sung in theatres all over the country.
The fact that it became a widely
known popular favorite in the few
years prior to the civil war is

even tomorrow is yours if you want
that, too). You can give and you can

souls. Could you tell the time of day
if I were to take the hands from your
clock? And what does that old
grandfather clock mean to you,
sitting there so threateningly at the
foot of the stariway?
The library was closed when I
called for you, so I walked through
the park and talked to dn old man
who said he was very much a part of
yesterday. But I did not believe him
because he ignored the birds that
perched upon his shoulder (a perfect
portrait of your old Polish father).
You travel around and hear all
sorts of new sounds but still you
don't hear me say that I love you.
The sailors say that the ocean can
talk but it has never said a word to
me. I'm afraid I don't make a very
good companion for you because my
eyes are weak and it is hard for me
to speak of a girl I once knew. I've
forgotten her name but I am sure
that I must still love her.
I ride through Europe on a
sophisticated mare who won't eat
anything but breakfast and I am
from Luxembourg but it doesn't

that I am not the kind of person who
could make you happy.

The 33 year-old Crews is a former

Bacon County, Georgia, where "all
of my people still live." He is
married to a former UF coed and
they have one son. Before coming to

Black. Or rather d?dc. There is a
very fine but inescapable distinction.
Black is when there is only void and
nothing else. Black is a state of
non-existence. Black suggests that
there is nothing else besides itself.
Dark, on the other hand holds out all
manner of promise. Dark is when the
lights are all out but the vision of all
good things and all reality is but a
flick of the switch or the striking of
a match away.
Dark is being asleep. Black is
being dead.
But I am not dead. I can feel an
ever so light movement of muggy air
across my face and in the distance I
can see what is one step closer to
hope than dark. Grey.
Grey which begins as a small
square with dark vertical lines
running up and down it and slowly
spreads like some faintly luminescent
fog around me. Now I am
surrounded by it. I know the pupils
of my eyes are expanding and that is
why I seem to be seeing this fantasy
but I enjoy playing tricks on my
senses. I used to rub my eyes quite
hard just to see brilliant flashes of
I did it constantly; it was a
favorite pastime. Whenever I was
bored, which was often, or when
people were generally making things
as miserable as they could for me, I
would steal away to the quietest
place I could find and just rub away.
It was wonderful there in that world
of brilliant purples and flashing
yellows. It was the most beautiful
thing I knew.
I had to give it up because I was
damaging my eyes. Even 90, I still
did it occasionally, when things were
really bad.
The fog is almost silver now. I can
make out various objects in the cell.
It is strange how a man will
become attached to the things that
surround his life. I have read that the
men imprisoned in the Bastille for
years felt real sorrow at leaving. I
think someone even wrote a poem
about it. It seems like one of the
Romantic poets, but I can't
remember which. I have been
meaning to ask for a good English
literature anthology but I kept
forgetting and it is too late now.
I don't wish to move; not even
my head. I am like this when I wake.
I enjoy the drowsiness that follows
sleep. I like to prolong it as long as I
can. The slightest movement seems
to chafe it off as if my whole body
were covered with tiny flower petals
and the slightest breath causes some
to fall.
The cell is almost distinct now. I
see the objects which have become


my friends in the last three months
while all the appeals were made.
There is a sink and a small stool. The
sink is so tiny that one cannot
possibly wash one's face and let the
water all run back into it. Instead, it
splashes all over the floor, onto my
legs, everywhere. I despise the
messiness. There is nothing to wipe it
up with save the solitary towel hung
beside the sink on the wall. I have
given up trying to wash my face
there. It is an unusual paradox. If I
wash my face, then I must have the
towel to dry with. On the other
hand, I will not wash my face and
leave a puddle of water about the
sink. Thus the towel does not get
used at all, and my face goes
unwashed until Thursdays and
Saturdays when I am taken out of
here and allowed to bathe.
The stool is of no use whatsoever.
It is like so many stools that I have
seen in my life. It has three legs and
is very short. I tried once to sit on it
for amusement. It has to be the most
uncomfortable piece of furniture
devised by civilization. I think it was
placed here to confuse me. There is
nothing to be done with it.
In the corner is my pride. A small
cabinet of unfinished wood holds the
ten books they allowed me to bring
and the three that I have from the
library this week.
In choosing my ten books I tried
to stay away from works of
philosophy, though that is my
passion. Philosophy, especially
metaphysics always leads my mind
up long, winding, and unbannistered
staircases into complete void.
Philosophy, whatever the logical
progressions, the lofty goals, the
brilliant minds involved, always leads
me to the same conclusion. Death is
at the end of all.
We are all bits of whirling atoms
synthesized against unthinkable odds
into larger bits of pulsating jelly,
lucky to claim even our temporary
existence. We are whisps of weakness
pitted against the overwhelming
existence of that which is and will
always be.
Nothing. Blackness. Death.

And tonight I will die.
I will give up my puny pulsations
and cease to be. I have told myself
many times that death is not to be
feared. Death is more of the universe
than life is. Death is simply
non-existence. It can't hurt not to
Socrates was said to have joked as
he drank hemlock. I fancied myself
doing the same thing as they strap
me into the chair. But I know I
won't. It is hard to give up existence
once you have had it. It is hard to
know that you will never again have
breakfast on a sidewalk on the
Champs-EI ysees, that you can never
again get lost in a library in New
York and be so engrossed in
discoveries you almost get locked in,
that you can never again look upon a
formation of high frozen cloud
No, I shan't joke. And I have no
illusions of being a gentleman about
the whole thing. I have l\eard tales of
men showing remarkable coolness in
the face of certain death. I have since
come to draw a bold distinction
between courage and bravado. I have
neither one.
I shall probably be sullen and
uncooperative. Perhaps I can say
something poignant to the guards.
Something that will stay with them,
the living, after my existence ceases
to be. Something that will haunt
them, cause them reflections, make
them wonder at the mysteries of life
and death as I do. They likely never
think of it. What is death to them? It
is a job. It is something for which
they are able to be paid and buy
food so that they may go about
living. Another paradox. My death
allows them to go on living. Let
them then. They will know someday
what I will know tonight. My awful
secret will be theirs. That will settle
The light is now quite strong from
the hallway. It must be approaching
eight o'clock. Perhaps if I lie still
here all day, the time will pass more
slowly. If I concentrate enough, as
the Orientals claim, perhaps I can

stop time altogether. How that
would cheat them of their prize!
Executing a man in a state of
Nirvanna. How insanely funny! What
a coup!
But I don't think I could manage
it. I haven't read that much about it
and my powers of concentration
aren't anywhere near adequate.
I'd best get up. One's last day of
existence shouldn't be spent in the
near-death of boredom.
I get up and perform my morning
activities. How insane all these daily
rituals become in the face of death.
How puny and insignificant. Do I
brush my teeth to assure myself that
they won't rot before midnight
tonight? Or could I be worried about
offending the guards? Do I put on
these grey stiff pieces of cloth
because of modesty? How modest
will I be when I cease to exist? Do I
comb my hair to make myself more
attractive, or is it that I want it to
look nice when they come to shave it
off so that the electrodes make good
contact? Os what use are any of the
trappings of existence when
existence is soon to be nothing.
Many things had once seemed
important to me.
She had seemed important. And
at this moment, after countless hours
of ceaseless ponderings, I still don't
know if I really pushed her or not. I
shouldn't have thought I would be
capable of doing it for anything no
matter how much I felt deceived by
her after all the years.
In those last moments I did not
feel anything for her except that
nonselective flash of blazing human
pity that one feels as one watches
another human being die. I once saw
a workman fall fourteen stories to
his death, screaming frighteningly all
the way down. That was the only
thing I felt for her as I looked into
her eyes as she fell. She didn't
scream. She just looked up at me, all
the way down, it seemed, for hours.
There was nothing to be done for
her, just as no one in the world could
help that screaming window washer.
They were dead even though they
still retained the technicality of life.
It was a matter of a few split seconds
before her whirling little atoms
would be spread randomly over the
rocks below and her existence would
cease to be once more. Her eyes,
with the terror of certain death in
them, haunt me still.
I shall look from them tonight.
It must be nearing noon now.
They brought me breakfast which I
could not eat. There are some
mornings in which nothing is more
repulsive than food.
I have been reading Candide. I did
not think I would be able to read
anything, s but I was mistaken. I was
able to become engrossed for whole
minutes at a time, sometimes even
smiling at the irony of Voltaire's
poor hero, before my mind flashed
suddenly to my inescapable
predicament and I saw those eyes.
At last they bring in lunch. The

guards are grim. They seem more
serious than I, but then, I have been
reading Candide. They are almost
apologetic as they set the tray down.
I feel more kindly disposed towards
them now. They don't appear so
heartless as I had imagined.
Lunch was just as I had asked.
They cooked the pheasant almost
exactly as I had specified, almost the
same as at the Baton Blanche where
my uncle used to take me on
The taste of the pheasant brought
back an avalanche of nostalgia.
Strange how certain tastes or smells
or sounds can uncannily bring to
mind events long forgotten.
I would rise early on Sunday. My
uncle insisted that if I spent a day
away from my studies, the least I
could do was begin it with worship. I
liked getting away from school. The
boys were all snobbish and not very
intelligent. They all had money and
they knew already that it was the
only important thing to worry
My Uncle came at seven and we
had breakfast. After the early service
we walked in the park. I used to talk
to my uncle about religion then. I
told him church was very boring to
me and the only reason I endured it
at all was to obtain the pleasure of
his companionship for the rest of the
day. He said only that I would
understand someday. How often we
are told that as children. My uncle
was mistaken. I am grown and still
do not understand.
After a long and leisurely morning
in the park, we would go to the
Baton Blanche. I enjoyed this part of
Sunday the most. The waiters wore
stiff morning coats of red, and all

seemed at the time. I was impressed
with the attention we received and
especially was I proud that my uncle
seemed to know everyone there. I
always ordered the pheasant. My
uncle ordered it the first time we
went there and I never tried anything
else. He told the waiter exactly how
he wished it prepared for me and it
soon became known to the waiter as
simply "the usual".
After lunch we would go to the
theatre matinee or occasionally to a
movie. This I enjoyed also. But I can
still remember the cloud of
depression that descended upon me
during the third act. I knew I would
soon be returning to the school for
another week of snobbish boys,
Latin and Greek.
They have taken away the tray
and I am fully satisfied. I have read
stories of men in their last hours

I was always a little incredulant. I see
now that it is not so phenomenal. It
is very difficult to feel the presence
of death for more than a few brief
flashes at a time. Your mind won't
allow you more than that. Some
kind of mental safety mechanism
permits us to see death only for
short moments. That is why we are
so unprepared for it. We have not
been conditioned to it.
I have resolved not to think of it.
The dinner has made me drowsy. It
is not hard to sleep in here. Tho air is

The sentiment of the song is a
expression of a desire to be back
home in DIXIE LAND, which
Webster defines as "a collective
designation of the Southern States of
the United States." The words
express sentiments similar to and are
about as inoffensive as songs like
"Little Grey Home in the West,"
"Home on the Range," "Carolina in
the Monrning," "Are You from
Dixie?" "Cornin' Round the
Mountain," "Tennessee Waltz," "On
the Banks of the Wabash," or "Home
Sweet Home."
Those who attribute other
meanings to the song and associate it
with "lynchings, disenfranchisement
of blacks and riding in the back seats
of busses;" those who think of it, or
use it, as an expression of hate,
racism and prejudice; and those who
assume that references to old
Southern traditions are ignoble, are
taking a narrow and mistaken view
of history. If association with
Southern traditions is considered a
reason for banning performances of
DIXIE, similar arguments could be
advanced for changing the words of
the University of Florida Alma Mater
which refer to:
"Where pine and palm are blowing,
Where Southern seas are flowing..."
or for changing Florida's official
state song, "Way Down Upon the
Swannee River." And of course
objections could be raised to the use
of Gershwin's classic "Swannee" and
dozens of other famous songs about
the South as well as that marvelous
source of much of the most beautiful
American music, the Negro

spirituals, which had their origin in
slavery days.
In the years before, during and
after the Civil War, there were many
evils in the land but they were not all
on the side of the South by any
means. History shows that these evils
were pretty evenly divided between
North and South. And there was a
great deal of nobility of purpose and
action on both sides as well. People
of both the North and the South
have many reasons to be proud of
the gallantry of the men and women
who represented their causes.
Among the finer results of this
tragic conflict were the songs and
martial music created by composers
of both sides which have become an
important part of the cultural
heritage of all Americans. It is
interesting to recall that the most
popular song of the Confederacy,
DIXIE, was written by a Northerner
while the most popular songs of the
Union Army, JOHN BROWN'S
BODY and later Julia Ward Howe's
REPUBLIC, were sung to the tune of
an old Camp Meeting gospel hymn of
Southern origin.
President Lincoln took the first
step to dispel the thought that
DIXIE was to be the exclusive
musical symbol for the Confederacy.
When a crowd of well wishers,
accompanied by a band, assembled
at the White House to serenade him
after Appomattox, the President
insisted that the band play DIXIE. It
was his way of indicting that DIXIE
was a song for all America and not

for one section, or one political
party or one race.
As a leader of military bands
overseas in two world wars, I have
played DIXIE hundreds of times. It
is accepted by American soldiers
from all parts of the country, as well
as by audiences in foreign countries,
as one of the most distinctive and
lively of American marching songs. It
would be a national 1 shame if political
or racial implications, which may be
temporarily associated with the song
in the minds of some people, were to
prevent the use of this spirited
example of our heritage of
American songs.
It is true that the song is often
misused. Those who have espoused
causes of doubtful merit have taken
it as their theme song. It has likewise
suffered from over-exposure by
those who think of it as a tune to be
played on the most trivial occasion.
It is evidence of the intrinsic vitality
of the music that in spite of all this,
the song has retained its basic appeal
and popularity for nearly one
hundred and ten years.
The song should be treated for
what it is -a vital and spirited
example of American music. As such
it should be treated with respect and
used only at appropriate times and
places. It should certainly not be
used to inflame passions of incite
riots. Neither should it be blamed for
disturbances which have for more
deep-seated causes than caivpossibly

The best criterion for theuse of
this or any other piece ; of band
music is the good taste and judgment

have only my single towel to wipe it
up. I despise messiness. I try to get
the towel but am overcome with
such nausea and pain that I am

The sickness has past. I lay still

I think I shall be all right. The room

to inherent musical qualities which
generate enthusiasm wherever it is
sung or played, has special historical
and sentimental significance for the
University of Florida. One of the
problems I faced when assuming

Florida Band in 1948 was to resist
many of the requests from 1 overly
enthusiastic listeners at public
functions to "play Dixie" every few

Accedence to all such requests would
have cheapened the tune and

plan was evolved for the use of
DIXIE, as well as the various
University, State, and National
songs, at appropriate times and in a
manner which is consistent with &a
dignity and spirit of a great

America needs more tunes like
DIXIE, which inspire audiences to
stand and cheer. If another is written
which will invoke the same sort of
enthusiasm, The Gator Band will

Harvey Alper Makes No Sense

I would like to comment on
some of the ideas tossed around
by UFs new prophet of the
working class, Harvey Alper.
In his column Thought
Without Action is Worthless
Mr. Alper states What we need
is to look beyond ourselves. We
need to come to the realization
that thought is worthless
without action. We need also to
realize that we should have no
guilt because our actions
stemmed from thought and were
not spontaneous.
Well, I am no philosopher like
Mr. Alper but I have tried to
make some sense out of the
paragraph I have read it at
least ten times I have parsed
the sentences I have
d iagrammed them upon my
apartment wall and I cant
make heads nor tails out of it. I
really dont see how one
sentence logically is derived
from the next. In fact the whole
article seems to be a colossal
non-sequitor somewhat on the :
order of a Ginzburg poem or a<
sociological treatise by the late
Ruth Benedict.
The only possible way to
derive cohesive criticism on the
article is to examine each
sentence by itself as perhaps
Billy Graham might treat an

Wicked Men, Leeches, And Crying

excerpt of HOLY WRIT and
separate the wheat from the
chaff when the wind bloweth
Firstly, Mr. Alpers slogans
are founded in existentialist
thought existentialism
amounts to a frothy, diluted
Puritanism which has no bounds
of good or evil. In other words
a work ethic without Heaven or
Hell. The existentialist
determines his own state in the
world, and is responsible for all
his actions to no one but
himself. No biological or
philosophical ties bind man to
his past he must bear all the
guilt for his actions.
Os course I cannot outline
the entire field of existentialism
here because I am no expert and
there is no room, but suffice it
to say that every scientific thrust
into the genetic structure of man
and his biologically determined
aspects shred to bits the idea
of free will.
If we assume with Mr. Alper
that thought without action is
worthless, let us assume then
that thought WITH action is
worth 50 times the other. Let us
assume that thought WITH
action is the be all and the end
all Where do we find ourselves.
Where is the ACTION today?
Why, in Vietnam, of course.
There is plenty of action at Dow
Chemical and General Dynamics.

But this was wrong so when they cried, they cried in
a dark, hidden comer.
One day a wicked band of men came in from the
north like a disease. These were wicked men with
wicked plans. They planned to hide in all the dark,
hidden corners of the Kingdom and whenever they
found someone crying, they would put a magic leech
on his back where he couldnt reach.
And the magic leech would slowly draw out his blood
until a few years later he died.
And soon, people in the Kingdom were plagued with
magic leeches on their backs.
Some had the magic leeches pulled off so they could
live; but they were punished in one form or another
because a magic leech meant that they were crying.
And crying was wrong.
Others feared punishment in one form or another, and

Surely no one can argue with
the idea that we ought to look
beyond ourselves. But let us
think, first. Let us think first
and act if and only if our
thoughts are clear and we know
what we are going to do. And if
there is no need to act then
why do so? Half of the worlds
troubles are caused by rash
To my own mind, there is
nothing more pleasant than
thought simply for the sake of
thought. I like a cool autumn
morning, a clean running creek,
a fine spinning reel, a big bass in
the waiting, and lots of time to
think away the lazy afternoons.
Added Woes
For Kiker
I would like to add a fervent
amen to Miss Carter s
comments concerning the
Alligators references to Dr.
Kiker. As yet, this scholarly and
basically kind man has not had a
hearing in court.
The character appraisal, it
seemed to me, added too much
unnecessarily to the woes of a
member of our community.

Tuaaday, Novombar 26,1968, Tha Florida Alligator,

never had their leeches pulled, and in a few years,
they died.
One day the King saw the problem, and set out to get
rid of the wicked band of men, so his Kingdom would
be happy.
But nobody would tell the king where the wicked
men hid out, for such knowledge would mean they
were crying.
And where the wicked men could have been gotten
rid of, they abounded and the Kingdom was
unhappy and sick.
And the wicked men began their plan to take over.
TRUE ITEM: At a recent medical convention, it was
brought out that VD could be wiped out in the
United States within five years (as is being done in
England) but that this will never happen, because
Americans are not open about sex.
Scratch your backs.

Speaking Out

Admit Your Error
Mr. President

Everyone makes mistakes, and rightly so for man is not perfect.
Are you perfect, President OConnell? I dont think so. After all
you are a human being with a wife and children. If you make a
mistake at home and your wife points it out, wouldnt you correct it?
Sure you would. Why not at the university.
It is not the man who sticks to his convictions when proven wrong
that is wise, but the man who admits when he is wrong. He reconciles
himself with those opposing him and together they work for a suitable
solution. And you are a wise man.
On the national level there is a bitter example of men who are
wrong and refuse to change their position. Nationalists, imperialists,
hate preachers and warmongers have dragged this country into a civil
war in Southeast Asia. Their cause, being morally and legally wrong,
has been repudiated by a vast majority of the American people. But
what is being done? Nothing. Perhaps there is a reason. These men
may not have the best interests of the people at heart. Maybe they
have personal interests in Southeast Asia they would like to protect.
This could be their reason for not changing their position, President
OConnell. But surely your interests at the university with those
working to improve the campus community.
Here at the University of Florida, we have a clear case of selective
law enforcement and discrimination. Mr. President, you have erred. Be
strong enough to admit your mistake. Lavon Gentry, an intelligent
and well mannered young man, has been arrested and trumped up
charges have been made against him. What are the charges? The
arresting officer wasnt sure. Apparently Gentry was finally charged
with defacing public property. The next question, Mr. President, is
how did he enact this crime? The answer is simple. He was doing what
hundreds of other university and non-university students have and are
doing taping posters on buildings. Only his posters were different.
He was not advertising a Student Government event, the sale of the
Seminole, or a fraternity or sorority event. He wasnt advertising for
the football team, for a movie or a dance. He was promoting a bust
the draft rally. And this is why he was arrested.
Yes, Mr. President, it sounds funny, it smells rotten. But what
could we expect. Again it has been proven that political freedom is
not a reality at the University of Florida.
Closed-minded reactionaries in Tallahassee, on the Board of
Regents, and in Tigert Hall have kept this university at low ebb for
years. We can be certain that you do not wish to be included in this
group. A man of justice, you know the proper action to take. Show us
you are the progressive president we all knew you would be when you
joined the university.
But your job is not an easy one. If you decide to break with those
who would like to keep this a police state, you will put yourself in
opposition to those in power in the state. But what is your true
position? How could you live with yourself if you stood by and let an
innocent man be persecuted? Show us you are concerned for your
students and end this persecution. You would be doing this university
a great service and certainly would be lifting the office of the
president out of the gutter through which it is sinking.

Jennings Counselors Aim
To Program Jobs Away

Campus Life Editor
Their aim is to program
themselves out of a job.
This is the ultimate goal of
Miss Amy Sanders and Jon
Goldstein, Jennings Hall
residence counselors.
Jennings Hall, formerly an all
womens dormitory area, is
going through the growing pains
stage in its switch to a coed
dorm area, but according to the
two youthful counselors the
adjustment has been surprisingly
smooth and easy.
There is a feeling of
community coming to
Jennings, said Goldstein, Its
becoming more than a place to
sleep; its a place to live.
Crist Talks
On Peruvian
Can you imagine a UF
professor going to Peru to tell
university students there about
conditions and future prospects
in the Amazon Basin?
Dr. Raymond Crist, graduate
research professor of geography,
spoke on The Development of
the Peruvian Amazon and its
Incorporation into the National
Economy to the Center of
Peruvian Studies and the Gallery
of Art and Culture in Lima.
Dr. Crist, speaking under
auspices of the Ford Foundation
in Lima, said improved road and
river transportation holds the
key to future Amazon Basin
In particular, the major road
under construction that will
ultimately connect Venezuela
with Boliva at the Eastern foot
f the Andes holds great
prospects for future
development, he said.
This is the area that is
somewhat comparable to our
Middle West 100 years ago
and once it develops its own
regional economic autonomy,
then development can lunge J
forward, he said.
The University of Florida
professor explained that then
you 11 have people engaged both
in productive activity and
services there and this will

Change is the key word in
Jennings this year, and the
counselors feel it extends
from atmosphere in the dorm
attitude among the students.
If I read it right around
here, the students seem to be
saying We try harder,
Goldstein said.
There is a concern with the
appearance of the
hall.. .students seem to be
pround of the place. Its a
spontaneous feeling, said Miss
Student involvement has
increased in Jennings dorm
projects and governing councils.
Last year there would be 14
or IS people at the most at
dorm council meetings, Miss
Sanders said, This year the
average is 50 or 60.
The counselors describe the
atmosphere as extremely
positive, although they admit
there is still a small group of
residents who are against the
change from an all womens to a
coed dorm area.
There were a lot of
complaints about this change
last year, and we respect the
right of these girls to feel that
way this year, but Jennings is


not going to change, Miss
Sanders said.
Complaints from residents are
relatively minor, ranging from
machines that dont work to
unlocked doors after hours.
There have been no serious
complaints, Goldstein said.
The students have taken
over the various dorm area
functions like the newspaper,
improvements and a new jSterary
magazine, Miss Sanders said.
Our function has evolved to an
advisory-liason capacity.
Jennings has become a
popular academic area as well as
a dormitory. Two freshman logic
classes are taught in the hall as
well as a Latin class and
Humanities lectures taught by
Dr. Didier Graeffe in the Rec
Miss Sanders and Goldstein
are planning closer contact with
the students in Jennings next
quarter as the major problems of
adjustment are conquered.
We are attempting to make
this a place where students can
learn a higher level of
communication md begin to feel
a part of the university.. .to
become involved both in the
residence community and in the
university, Goldstein said.

UF Planetarium In
Planning Stages
Alligator Staff
Realistic proposals for UFs planned planetarium are being
researched by a four-man committee appointed by Frederick W.
Conner, vice president of academic affairs.
The four members are Dr. Guy C. Omer, chairman of physical
sciences, Dr. A.G. Smith, chairman of the astronomy department, Dr.
J.C. Dickinson, head of the Florida State Museum, and Dr. Franz
Sauers, professor of zoology.
The physical science classes, the astronomy department, and the
navigation classes would all use it, Omer said.
It would be open to the public on occasion, and for Alachua
County elementary and high school student lectures.
The planetarium is estimated at $ 150,000. The breakdown is about
$60,000 for a simple building, and SBO,OOO SIOO,OOO for the
dome and projector.
Compared to others in the Southeast, this planetarium will be
about average size, but it will be a more modern version than the one
at the University of South Florida Omer said.
There used to be an old cardboard version of a planetarium in
the old Benton building, which has since been tom down, Omer said,
but its capacity was only about 20 people.
The estimated capacity of the planned planetarium is about 150
When built, it may be located across the street from the University
Police Department on Radio Road, Omer said. That is where the
Florida State museum, now located in the Segal building downtown,
will be in the future, said Omer. Three new Biological Sciences
buildings will also be located there.
The planetarium is still in the planning stage, however, Omer said.
There are still important agreements to be made concerning the
use of the planetarium, and the committee has yet to make a final
report, he said.

'Secret Ceremony Tingles

Alligator Reviewer
It was a strange, haunting
experience, like awakening from
a dream, momentarily fearful
that something really had
happened. Mia Farrow,
Elizabeth Taylor, Robert
Mitchum: all are absurdly
fantastic, pathetically lost, in
John Heymans production of
Secret Ceremony, now
playing at Center I.
In a painfully profound role,
Mia Farrow again demonstrates
superbly that she can, indeed,
act. Playing the role of a slightly
mentally-retarded virgin, tom
between love for her mother and
her first stirrings of sexual
emotions, every action of her
spindly body becomes a
Living alone in an elegant
mansion seemingly filled with
vast, ghost-inhabited rooms, Miss
Farrow refuses to accept the
death of her mother. She picks
up" Elizabeth Taylor, an aging
prostitute, because of her strong
resemblance to her dead parent,
and installs her in the mansion as
Miss Taylor finds it easy to
accept this new role, not only
because of the luxurious wealth
provided for her, but also
because Mia Farrow serves as a

The mad king in "Eecurial." one of the four pleyt being P' a * t 1
Jp r the last time tonight at Bin the Constans Theater, i* portrayedby
PlorKla Player Claude Pinkston. Dennis Jensen is the director of this
Rowing Gothic nightmare containing a mad king and his mysterious


replacement for her own
daughter, a young child who was
drowned years before.
The relationship between the
two women strangely succeeds,
for each fulfills a need in the
other, until Robert Mitchum
arrives on the scene. In an
attempt to make Miss Farrow
realize her womanhood, he
serves as the impetus which
begins the ultimate, total
destruction of this female,
illusory dreamworld.
Mia Farrow cannot accept the
end of her masquerade. Forced
to admit her life of make-believe
and self-delusion, she must face
the world as it really is, a world
filled with death, greed, and
loneliness, and this she is unable

to do. Her final decision is tragic,
and irrevocable.
Secret Ceremony is indeed
a thought-tingler; a show that
you wont forget the moment
the lights come on. Elizabeth
Taylor gives a respectable
performance as the prostitute
desperately in need to love,
although Mitchums description
of her as a cow is quite
Robert Mitchum, as the
droopy-eyed, sinister villain, is
slso adequate. Music adds
mother facet to the weird
suspense of the film, and is used
with greatest effect.
Secret Ceremony is at once
fantastic and mysterious,
horrible and pathetic, vividly
illustrating the fact that dreams,
for all of us, are at times just a
little too real.

Gator's Luck: Bad

Assistant Sports Editor
The third time was hardly a
charm for Ray Graves and the
Florida Gators.
The third of three
quarterbacks who started the
year under a full head of steam
Monday joined the other two as
unlikely players against Miami.
Harold Peacock, who was
pressed into action against
Kentucky when Larry Rentz
broke a rib, now resembles his
predecessor and the still-ailing
Jackie Eckdahl.
Floridas game plan now goes
to Tom Kennell, who will be
backed up by former flanker
Guy McTheny.
This strange turn of events
came to a climax yesterday
when Peacock, who was about
to see his first game ever as
starting quarterback, went to the
hospital with an eye
The injury, which will
definitely put Peacock out of
the picture for the Miami game,
began as a poke in the left eye
during last Wednesdays practice.
Peacock did not mention the
injury, and treated it with
eyedrops from the school
infirmary. Fearing that a
doctors report might jeopardize
his chances for the starting nod,
he said nothing until the eye
finally hemorrhaged Monday.
Peacock was taken to Alachua
General Hospital, where he will
be hospitalized a minimum of
six days. Latest doctors reports
say that the seniors permanent
vision could be impaired. His
official ailment was listed as eye
hyphenia, a loss of blood flow due
to a rupture.
Floridas former number one
and two quarterbacks have
shown little improvement over
last weeks conditions.
Eckdahls toe is still taped,
and the calcium doposits on his
bicep have not responded as well
to treatment as Graves would
like to see.
Rentz, suffering from a
cracked rib which pulled him
out of the Kentucky game, has
done no work in the past week,
and probably will do none
before Thursday, if then.
The quarterback drought has
forced up a pair of players who
will see their first action as
quarterback since high school.
Kennell has worked at
quarterback since the Georgia
game, but has not played yet. By
virtue of this, he is now first
string quarterback. McTheny,
who was outstanding as a
quarterback in high school,
moves over from flanker. By
game time, he could well be
Floridas starting signal caller.
Speculation that yet another
quarterback might be called up

from the reserves was met with a
negative response from Graves.
Behind McTheny, Graves
said, Theres no one.
If Peacocks injury is not a
crippling blow to the Gators, the
loss of guard Wayne Griffith
certainly will be.
Griffith was injured in
dummy drills Saturday when he
was accidentally cleated. Six
stitches were required to close
the wound on his foot, and his
status for the game is considered
very doubtful.
The loss of Griffith and
Peacock, and the resulting
switch of Kennell and McTheny
into quarterback positions have
left numerous vacancies on the
squad. Some of the starting
positions this Saturday will be
filled by players who have not
been in that position all year.

Florida players landed positions
on the annual United Press
International All-SEC team,
.tying for fourth along with
Alabama in the number of
players in the 1968 selection.
Floridas three entries were
halfback Larry Smith, guard
Guy Dennis, and defensive
cornerback Steve Tannen.

Gellerstedt of Alabama were the
only sophomores included.
Milner, who already has
caught as many passes, 61, in his
first varsity season as any other
Mississippi State player ever
caught in three, is the flanker in
an otherwise all-senior backfield
that includes quarterback Loran
Carter of Auburn and running
backs Dicky Lyons of Kentucky
and Larry Smith of Florida.
Carter, only sixth in total
offense in the SEC this fall but



first in touchdown passes, got
less than 30 per cent support in
balloting by sports writers and
sportscasters from throughout
the Southeast.
But he had enough votes to
win when sophomores Archie
Manning of Mississippi and Mike
Cavan of Georgia split the
runnerup votes with Bubba
Wyche of Tennessee and Tommy
Pharr of Mississippi State the
SEC offense leader with 1,889
yards also in contention.
Lyons and Smith, both
repeaters from the 1967 AD-SEC
team, have been hampered by
injuries this season but the
Kentucky ace still leads in
scoring with his 11 touchdowns
and Smith is the leagues No. 2
The leading rusher,
Tennessees Richard Pickens,
was third in the balloting for the
two running back positions.
The AO-SEC offensive One
has Tim Christian of Auburn,
the No. 2 receiver, at spUt end
and Ken DeLong of Tennessee at
tight end. The tackles are Bill
Fortier of Louisiana State and
David Rholetter of Georgia; the
guards, Charles Rosenfleder of
Tennessee and Guy Dennis of
Florida; and the center, Tom
Banks of Auburn.
The defensive line, anchored
by the 5-foot-8, 195-pound
Gellerstedt, has Mike Ford of
