Mandatory ROTC has been abolished at the University of
Florida and many students would like to see physical education
meet the same fate, but Atty. Gen: Earl Faircloth warned
against such a move Monday.
Faircloth said Florida universities better have sound,
defensible reasons if they do not offer physical fitness
programs to all students, even though they are not required by
law to do so. f
nnininn was asked after Florida State Universitys
Faculty Senate removed physical education from the list of
required courses ten days ago.
The reasoning was that the present requirement of three
courses for graduation made it difficult for the physical
education department to also maintain a.professional program
for students majoring in physical education.

Reitz Union Charter
To Get Breath Os Life
By ELLEN DUPUY
Alligator Staff Writer
Life will be put back into the dead body of the Reitz Union
Charter tonight at the Student Senate meeting.
The third revised charter for the Union will be presented tonight in
room 349 in the Reitz Union by Student Senate President, Jack
Vaughn with many major overhauls.
At present, with the old charter, the union is run by an eight
student, six faculty member Board of Managers.
These students and faculty members are ex-officio members in
outside organizations such as Blue Key, Student Publications, and
Florida Mortar Board.
Since they dont really have a special interest in the Union, many
times there are problems getting them to even attend the meetings,
The proposed charter allows for eight students, two of which will
be voted on in a general election for the offices of president and vice
president, and four students appointed by the student body president
and approved by the student senate.
The six other members of the Board of Managers will be the
Director of the Union (in a non-voting capacity), a Secretary of the
Union appointed by the President of the Union, and four
non-students appointed by the UF President.
This is the second attempt to change the old charter.
Earlier last quarter a revised charter was presented to the senate for
approval which was granted but then referred to Honor Court.
The Union officers, headed by then-president Roger Brown,

'NOT RIGGED FOR SG
By DEAN BUNCH
Alligator Staff Writdr
Wednesdays referendum will not skirt the issue of
whether Student Government has been an effective force or
just a political playground, SG Vice President Gary
Goodrich said Monday.
Goodrich denied charges that the election is rigged in
favor of continuation of SG. He said that some had wanted
three choices on the constitutional question: keep, abolish
or change SG.
We are giving those who do not think SG is doing its job a
clear chance to abolish it by having only two choices and
also by not having it during the general election, Goodrich
If we had it during the general election, abolition
wouldnt have a chance because the forces who are
interested in getting their candidates elected, would bring
out the block vote.
Goodrich said the promise made during the campaign last
year by President Clyde Taylor
had put pressure on all student
officers. For the first time they
will be answerable to the
students even if they are not
seeking reelection, Goodrich
Another beneficial effect of
the referendum according to
Goodrich is that SG has been
getting more attention by the
press and the students in the last
two weeks. Normally the only
things you read about SG are
complaints about a bad seat at a
concert, he said.
Now the structure and
programs of SG are being
explained and I think this will
have a good effect in the spring
elections. The students will be
better able to judge the
candidates, he said.
Goodrich agreed with Senate
Majority Leader Charles Harris
that the biggest single
improvement of the SG in the
past year has been the
elimination of what they called
political games from SG.
Harris said he thought the
election would show an
overwhelming sentiment to
retain SG but added, I dont
think they really support SG as
it is. v

Senators Quit Left & Right
By RICHARD GLENN
Alligator Staff Writer
Two or three student senators
resign every week, Jack Vaughn,
president of the UF Student
Senate, said Monday.
Senators usually resign
because of a lack of time, poor
grades or a change in address or
college which disqualifies them
to represent the area or college
they were elected to serve,
Another reason for vacancies
in the 80-seat Student Senate is
an automatic resignation
clause in the Senate Rules and
Procedures, Charles Harris,
majority leader, said.
He said a senator with three
unexcused absences from senate
meetings is automatically
suspended. In the past the senate
had to vote a member out if he
missed three meetings, Harris
said. He explained that a very
few students were ever voted out
because of the politics involved.

vacant seats in the

Carbon Dioxide Cause
Os Aquanaut Death
After a series of mysterious accidents which plagued and delayed
the Sealab 111 project, aquanaut Berry Cannon, UF graduate, died on
the oceans floor.
Cannon died of carbon dioxide poisoning as he and three other
aquanauts were swimming from a transport capsule to the
laboratory-habitat Feb. 17. They were to spend 1 2 days in the 70-foot
long chamber to test mans ability to live and work in the ocean
Just after Cannon died, an oxygen valve leading to the chambers
where his eight fellow Sealab 111 aquanauts were undergoing
decompression was tampered with, a hearing in San Diego yesterday
Cmdr. J.M. Tomsky, head of the Sealab 111 project, told a Naval
investigation board Saturday night that an oxygen valve was found
open three times during the decompression period. He said if the
oxygen line had not been blocked at another point, the eight other
divers would have died within minutes.
The Sealab 111 project was scrubbed indefinitely immediately after
Cannon, a 33-year-old veteran diver, died.

UF's NEW OPTICAL OBSERVATORY
...Called Rosemary Hill
Rosemary Hill is the name of the UF optical observatory, 30
miles south of Gainesville, which is used by processors and graduate
students of astronomy.
Since its completion in March 6B, the observatory has mainly been
used for photographing stars and galaxies.
There are two major research programs underway at the
observatory; studying the brightness of variable stars, and
photographing galaxies and quasars. A quasar is a spot of light in space
which gives off radioactive waves and more light than an entire galaxy.
Within the observatory, a 30-inch reflecting telescope reveals the
stars. The $65,000 telescope and the $15,000 silver dome were
financed with funds from the National Aeronautics and Space
Administration grant for scientific development.
The director of Rosemary Hill plans the time when certain
phenomena can be observed to the best advantage. Professors and
. graduate students can track and photograph the stars.
In the past few weeks, a new photometer has been installed in the
observatory. The function of the photometer is making accurate
measurements of the brightness of stars.

A new method of estimating
population has been developed
which shows that Florida
counties have grown most
rapidly in the age group 45 years
and older during the last 19
The new method makes it
pc ssible to estimate population
more accurately during years
between the national census
which is taken every decade.
Formerly population was
estimated by adding new births
and deaths, new migration and
military population to the 1960
census count for the area.
The new composite method
was introduced because it uses
vital statistics more effectively,
according to Ronald E. Beller,
head of the division of
population statistics of the
College of Business
The new method studies
population in three age groups,
using different methods and data
for each group.
The population 45 years and
older is estimated on the basis of
reported deaths for this age
group. There is a relationship
between deaths and resident
population for an area. The
number of people can be
estimated if resident deaths are
divided by relevant death rates.
In the 18 through 44 age
group women and men are
estimated separately. Births to
mothers are compared with rates
developed for births at specific
ages of mothers to reveal the
number of women. Men are
estimated on the basis of
established rates between men
and women in this age group.
The number of people under
18 is estimated by adding
natural increase and net
migration to the 1960 Census
statistics on this group.

estimating Florida populations

It would seem that the criterion for being a student group
should be that it includes students. SSOC may not be
exclusively a student group, but it is still primarily for
It permits membership to anyone who believes in the
things they believe in, namely freedom, participatory
democracy, equal and fair justice, self-determination, etc.
But the fact that there are non-students should not be
sufficient cause to deny the students in the group the right
to hold meetings in the Reitz Union.
Secondly, many groups in a free society do not use the
existing structure for the implementation of political action.
They go into limbo outside the structure, or create one of
their own. This is consonant with the principles of our way
of life, as long as the groups do not disrupt or do violence to
the structure accepted and condoned by the majority of
Thirdly, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that loyalty
oaths to the state and federal governments as a condition for
employment are unconstitutional. The high court said a
state cannot discriminate against a prospective employee
because he intellectually believes in violence as response to
Yet our vice president would have us believe that the
university can do what the state cannot do -- demand
loyalty and responsibility to the institution from those who
seek official recognition.
To demand that SSOC disavow any and all thoughts of
disloyalty to the university before it can be admitted to the
universitys sacred domain is clearly unconstitutional.
Fourthly, the expectation that SSOC would DENY that
its source of power was the potential ability to stop the
university from functioning is not only irrelevant, but also
This is a source of power for any group who chooses to
exercise it. The Gator Guard, with loaded rifles, could stop
this university from functioning a hell of a lot faster than a
handful of radicals armed only with their brains and hands.
Was such a question posed to the Gator Guard, or any
other group, before it received recognition? We seriously
Was SSOC asked to deny that its source of power was
anything else? Say like, the ability to sell rotten hot dogs in
the Plaza of the Americas. (For those of our readers who
may not be knowledgeable in such things, the smell of
rotten hot dogs can be quite powerful!) Again, we doubt it.
Taken together, Hales reasons are arbitrary, invalid
and beneath the credibility of intelligent people.
SSOC should be allowed on campus. It should be given
permitted the chance to attain identity with this institution
and work vigorously for constructive change where change
Hales reasons for urging that SSOC be denied campus
r^cegnitTQiiareiridicativc ofwhat- the group is
fighting stagnation, repression, narrow-mindedness and a
climate of anti-think.
We hope that the man at the top of the ladder in whose
hands the decision now rests, President OConnell, will
recognize an empty barrel when he sees one.
Because Vice President Hales report and
recommendations are now sitting on OConnells desk.

wonders if students will provide
for themselves all the little
things SG presently pays for.
He lists benefits which
include color T.V. sets in dorms,
band uniforms, lost and found,
babysitting services, intramurals,
and similar items.
It is true that SG has worked
hard to provide these
advantages with student
money. Realistically students are
entitled to them with or
without their present
It would seem highly likely
that any student government
would provide these comforts in
college life and for that matter
any administration would,
It appears then that SG is
really nothing more than a

Your lack of knowledge and

Violence and disruptive
activity at any university are
deplorable; but ultimatums and
statements based on emotion
rather than fact whether

only three students were
interested enough to attend. All
three actively participated in
discussion and their ideas were
considered, in fact most of them
were added to our proposal.
It is a ridiculous state of
affairs when out of 5000
students involved in physical
education only three attend;
there were seven physical
education teachers and two
physical education majors there
to answer questions about the
change of program. It was an
embarrassing situation since the
teachers outnumbered the
students. This committee was
open minded, expecting to hear
opinions from a cross section of
those taking physical education.
For the reasons stated above
the committee wishes to remind
all those who have complaints
that there was an opportunity
for them to express their
opinion. committee was
formed in conjunction with the
students; unfortunately five

legislators are just as
dangerous to our state and our
culture. The students at the
University of Florida condemn
violence by an overwhelming
majority approaching 99%; but
they also condemn any
interference with a free
exchange of ideas.
The people of this state own
the university, but they will
never own the thoughts of its
members; and they should never,
for when a democratic state
controls the minds of its people,
it is no longer a democracy.
The solution to whatever
crisis is supposed to exist is not
closing the university, nor is it to
cut off funds. The answer lies in
reasoning and understanding.

our state, make some attempt to

Yours truly was permitted to vote for the United Press
International All-America basketball team the other day. Since my
choices will be lost in the thousands of ballots that will be tabulated.
Ill list them for what they are worth here:

Kentucky; Pete Maravich, LSU; Rick Mount, Purdue
COACH OF THE YEAR: Adolph Rupp, Kentucky
PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Neal Walk, UF
From around the conference:
It will be like homecoming when the Georgia Bulldog Tennis squad
travels to the Sunshine State to meet the Gators April 5. Four Bulldog
racketeers are Floridians: Brant Bailey (Largo), Mike Cmaylo (Fort
Lauderdale), Norman Holmes Jr. (Melbourne) and Jim Watrous
By the way, high flying Kentucky racked up the rebounds in their
100-point plus games with Louisiam and Alabama last week to take
the team lead from the Gators in that department. The Wildcats are
now averaging 50.5 retrieves per game to the Gators 49.7.
The Tennessee sports fans last week got their first glimpse of
Knoxvilles newest answer to mass rioting Roller Derby. While there
were moments resembling athletics, most of them were interspersed
by the molesting going on between the female participants.
The touring squads will be hitting all the big southern cities and
with the vol student support, it looks like Knoxville may get a
franchise next year. Wowee!
Its no wonder the Gators triple jumper Ron Coleman came in
second in the SEC Indoor meet this past weekend in Montgomery.
Though he set a school record at he placed second to
Tennessees Jeff Gabel who sailed 50-4/4. Gabels coach is former

Gainesvilles A1 Giffin, a senior textile major at Auburn cant
decide on professional football or graduate school. But he thinks he
could try a little of both.
A teammate of several Gators out of Gainesville High, Giffin

MURDER-SUICIDE IN FALCON GM FAMILY
Wall, a well-to-do businessman
before he took the post with the
Falcons more than two years
ago, discovered the macabre
scene when he returned to the
two-story brick veneer home
early Monday after an
out-of-town weekend trip.
Detectives said Wall returned
home during the night and, not
wishing to disturb his family,
slept in a downstairs bedroom.
Earwood, who last ran on the
Covington strip shortly after
Christmas, says that spectators
there are allowed to hang on a
chicken wire fence right on the
strip itself. Most had pulled their
cars right up along side the strip.
They were maimed when the car
To receive a sanction, there
must be protection between cars
and spectators. The Yellow
River track did not have it and
therefore could not qualify
under any association.
The minimum requirement is
a guardrail at least three feet tall
between spectators and the cars
The Gainesville strip in
comparison, has a 3-foot high
guard rail on the strip.
Spectators are kept 60 feet from
that rail. At the local strip,
which is fully sanctioned for
safety by the NHRA, spectators
are not allowed as far down the
strip as they were at Covington
where such high speeds were
attained. Nor are cars permitted
to park along the strip.
Its a shame that the same
words can be used to describe
that kind of strip and ours, said
Burr Heishman, general manager
of the Gainesville Dragway.
He discovered the shootings
when he woke about 8:30 a.m.
The tragedy was the second in
two days in the Georgia sporting
world. Sunday, a drag racing
mishap killed 11 and injured 50.
Frederick Samuel Wall, 10,
clad only in his pajamas, was
dead in his bed. His sister,

wounded but alive, was in her

Everybody interested in the proposed UF activities center is invited
to attend the organizational meeting of the Student Center Action
Team (SCAT) Tuesday night at 7 p.m. in Room 118 of the Reitz
Former Gator basketball captain Brooks Henderson and spokesmen
from the Gator Athletic Department will be on hand to inform the
students of the status of the project to date.
By meeting time, an expected agreement on cooperation between
SCAT organizer Steve Rohan and Order of Omega President Jim
Devaney will have been reached, according to Rohan.
Both groups have claimed that they will handle student fund-raising
for the center.
Campus clubs and organizations will be told at the
they can take a part in the fund-raising efforts.
The next six months will be crucial in establishing an activities
center, said Rohan. We want all students to take part.
Devaney and Rohan met Monday to work out how each others
plans could compliment each other without duplicating and dividing
the student effort.
Both agreed that there should be only one group to unify the entire
student effort, Rohan said.
