Revised Athletic Ticket Plan Presented

By MARC DUNN
Alligator Sports Editor
A revised athletic ticket plan has been
submitted to the UF Athletic Association
by its Ticket Committee for approval
according to Student Government
Secretary of Athletics Miles Wilkin.
After 12 months of work this is a big
victory, Wilkin said. The people on the
Ticket Committee were very reasonable.
The plan is highlighted by guarantee of
about 14,600 student seats available for
UF home football games.
The plan, which was formulated and
approved by the Ticket Committee, spells
out that every student should have a ticket
available to football games it he wants to
attend. An estimate was also made on the
maximum attendance at games by students

Dialogue Thrashes Over
Reforms Needed In 5G

By CHRIS SCHAUSEIL
Alligator Staff Writer
It Student Government were
abolished, UF President Stephen
C. OConnell would probably
take advantage of his authority
to appoint a new one, Mel
Sharpe, assistant to the
president, said at Dialogue
Monday.
OConnell hasnt said exactly
what he would do in that event
but more than likely he would
call in representatives from all
areas of campus for ideas, like a
college council Sharpe said.
The Dialogue forum,
sponsored by Blue Key thrashed
out a final debate before the
referendum Wednesday on the
future of Student Government.
Campaign tactics were cited as
one of the first priorities for
reform.
Student Body President Clyde
Taylor blamed the four weeks of
campaigning, when every body
gets crap shoved under their
door, their doors knocked on
three times a day, and when the
losers moan for weeks
afterwards, on what really
leaves a bad taste in everybodys
mouth about the image of

to arrive at the number of student ticket
assignments.
The date ticket policy was reccomended
for change so that there will be enough
available to meet the apparent legitimate
demand.
The committee suggested that married
students tickets be issued in a season
package during registration.
Married students, with the proper
credentials, will be able to purchase a
season date ticket for their spouse at the
regular game by game price.
Approximately 1500 tickets will be
available.
Another proposed change is in the ticket
window schedule. The windows will be
open more hours and as many as 10
windows will be open prior to homecoming
and FSU games. For these two games

student government.
University College Dean
Franklin Doty deplored the
character assassinations he
had seen throughout his years at
the UF in SG campaigns.
Charles Buresch, former
president of Hume Hall,
presented a critical analysis of
the government.
He charged that the services
the government took credit for
were only funded by that body.
He cited the Selective Service
Information Bureau which was
run by the librarians and Project
SAMSON, which was originally
started outside of Student
Government, as examples.
Taylor contended that
students couldnt work full time
at the information bureau
because of school, and that the
situation needed more
professional handling since
books and pages containing the
information were being stolen.
Some students may have
started Samson outside the
government, but they couldnt
get it off the ground without the
SG he said.
Buresch questioned the need
for two new pools in the dorm
areas, when the present one was

Special Vote Today
Decides SGs Future
By DEAN BUNCH
Alligator Staff Writer
UF's Student Government could die today at middle age 53 years
old as students vote in a special referendum on the question of
retention, abolition, or change of its present structure.
The ballot will contain three questions: A constitutional
amendment voiding the student bodv constitution and statutes: is
there a need for SG reform; and should the next student body
president form a task force to study reform.
Voting will take place today from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 12 polling
places.
Secretary of the Interior Bill Modlin said students could vote at any
of the sites by presenting both their I.D. and fee cards. Fee cards will
be punched to prevent anyone from voting twice.

For UFs first home game with Houston
which is two days after classes start, the
committee proposed that tickets be made
available four days before the game. They
will be available Wednesday during
registration, Thursday and Friday during
classes and Saturday morning before the
game.
This is the best students
can get on the tickets they want, Wilkin
said.
Both the Athletic Department and SG
expressed pleasure at the proposed ticket

Twenty-five percent of the

If the amendment to abolish
SG is defeated and the public

will have to wait until after the
April 24 general election.
The task force would be
appointed by the student body

SSOC Knocks
Hales Opinion
On Chartering

By JANIE GOULD
Alligator Staff Writer
The recommendation to deny
SSOCs charter bid is a
deliberate effort to stifle
non-violent dissent, SSOC
charged Tuesday.
Vice President for Student
Affairs Lester Hales decision
shows that students and faculty
representative bodies have no
decision-making power at all,
SSOCs steering committee said
in a statement released by its
chairman, Steve Fahrer.
SSOC applied in October for a
charter which was approved in
February by the student and
faculty Committee on Student
Organizations and Social Affairs,
flale refuted the committees
decision on Friday; the final say
rests with UF President Stephen
C. OConnell.
SSOC expects OConnell to
side with Hale in turning down
the charter bid. OConnell is
expected to make a statement
on the matter today.
OConnell is looking for any
pretext to deny our charter,
SSOC said. Asking Hales
opinion was a ploy to counteract
the committees stand and make
OConnell look good when he
turns down the charter request,
SSOC charged.
Actually, the applications of
most organizations seeking
charters are subject to Hales
scrutiny.
Hale based his decision on
four complaints: SSOC disclaims
any responsibility to the UF;
SSOC does not aim to use

between the swim meets, and
gym classes, Taylor replied. He
said the dorm residents were the
most overlooked segment on
campus, claiming the fraternities
had their houses, and those off
campus lived near pools and had
their own places. Pools in the
dorm area would hit the most
students, most of the time, for
the less money, he said.
The whole point is not whos
running the services, but that
they are off the ground, and the
services werent here 12 months

political action within the
structure of elected
representative government to
bring change; SSOC did not
deny that its cource of power
was the potential ability to
stop the university from
functioning.
However, according to SSOC,
the membership list submitted
last fall as part of its charter
application consisted entirely-of
UF students; only UF student
members vote on matters
relating to thfe UF.
In disclaiming responsibility
to the UF, SSOC said it pledges
loyalty to freedom, equality and
democracy rather than an
authoritarian person or
repressive institution.
SSOC advocates an effective
reorganization of the University
power structure along
democratic lines, e.g. selection
of the University president by
students and faculty rather than
by the Board of Regents, the
statement said.
Unlike the university, SSOC
is governed "by the persons who
participate in it making their
own decisions. Unlike the UF
Administration which -by
President OConnells own
admission is subject to the
whims of the Board of Regents,
SSOC is not controlled by
outsiders.
In stating that SSOC did not
deny that its source of power
was the potential ability to
stop the university from
functioning, Hale deduces that
the only way meaningful change
can take place is through

Government couldnt plan for
anything in the future because it
couldnt maintain control over
autonomous groups like the
Rathskellar which was under
private management, and the bus
to classes service, under plant
and ground division now.
On the contrary, autonomous
groups were the best way for
continuity, Taylor maintained.
We took the Rathskellar out of
politics. now someone in
student government couldnt
touch it if they wanted to, he
said.
Lack of communication, not
student apathy, the lack of
assurance that one
administrations program will be
continued in the next, and pure
unadulterated greed of some
SG workers were pinned as the

violence, SSOC charged.
Hale links the local SSOC
with national SSOC, SDS
(Students for a Democratic
Society), and JOMO (Junta of
Military Organizations), which
groups are then alleged, without
proof, to be violent, the
statement reads.
Gainesvilles SSOC chapter
has never participated in
violence, alone or with other
groups, in contrast to UF
fraternities and ROTC training
programs.
This attack is characteristic
of Hales foggy logic, blatant
distortion and tactics of guilt by
association, Fahrer said.
The basis of his attack was
our supposed unwillingness to
operate through established
channels, he added. But in.
reality we did go through
channels to get chartered, and
look what happened.
Whether or not OConnell
approves the application, SSOC
will continue to operate, though
Fahrer declined to comment on
immediate plans. The group
sought official recognition so it
could use UF facilities, but no
matter what happens, the Plaza
of the Americas is always open.

Taylor said it was the annual

fresh new ideas every year, he
said. He also pointed to the fact

ftA P crtPL E ARRESTED

Cops Bust Up
Rally At FSU

By THE FSU FLAMBEAU
TALLAHASSEE Ai least 60 Florida State University students
were arrested Tuesday night when they defied a circuit court
injunction prohibiting Students for a Democratic Society from using
the Union State Room to present national SDS Secretary Fred
Gordon.
Gordon, who Hew to Tallahassee Tuesday horn Chicago, was
among those arrested.
Approximately 150 students had gathered in the State Room when
the restraining order was served by Campus Security Chief William
Tanner.
Bv 8:30 p.m., 30 minutes after the injunction had been issued,
approximately 350 students had gathered in the union parking lot and
along Tennessee Street as the arrested were carried out of the union
and put into two paddy wagons.
Riot police with fixed bayonets were dispatched to the parking lot
where they formed a line between the students and the paddy wagon.
At least one other student was arrested in the parking lot.
The assembled students yelled at the white-helnieted riot troops.
Several students momentarily stood in the way of the paddy wagons.
Other students banged on the sides of the trucks.
When the paddy wagons left the area the riot police assembled as a
group and marched west on Palmetto Drive.
Egged on by cries, everybody to Wescott!, many students then
moved to Wescott Hall, the FSU administration building. By 9:30
p.m. 900 students had gathered on the steps and the lawn.
Paddy wagons were dispatched to Wescott, but no trouble or arrests
were reported.
The injunction was requested by acting President Stanley Marshall
around 4 p.m. Tuesday afternoon after several members of SDS
entered the State Room and refused to leave.
The group numbered about 40 at 6:30 p.m. A loud speaker was set
up on the adjacent balcony.
Over it those persons passing beneath the balcony were urged to:
Help us defend your freedom of speech help us hold the State
Room.
Word leaked to the students in the State Room that the restraining
order had been sought and issued. Leaders of the group then calmly
outlined the courses of action that could be taken. It was decided by a
majority that the group would resist the injuction and be arrested.
When Tanner came to present the restraining order he was
accompanied by Leon County Sheriff Raymond Hamlin, Student
Body President Canter Brown, Vice President John Arnold and about
ten plainclothes and uniformed police.
When SDS National Secretary Gordon had begun his speech he was
interrupted by Tanner who tried to read aloud the order. He was
shouted down by the assembled students.
Sheriff Hamlin yelled for order. He received it and Tanner read the
injunction. Tanner told the students that unless they left the room
they would be arrested.

that student bodies change too.
I dont see 24-hour greed on
the third floor, but real concern
and personal satisfaction,
Taylor said about student
government workers.
The panel discussed the power
of student government itself. It
shouldnt even be called a
government, Taylor said. The
only power we have is the power

of opinion, he said. OConnell
calls all the shots.
Doty questioned strain on full
time students if they were given
full responsibility on such things
as Curriculum Committees.
Perhaps students devoting so
much time would be able to take
less than the required 12 hours
and receive credit for their work
on committees, he said.



Century Tower
To Sing Again
By KATHIE KEIM
Alligator Staff Writer
The word from the Department of Music remains generally
unchanged the chimes of Century Tower may be ringing again
by the end of this or the beginning of next quarter.
One new pronouncement, though, is that a final estimate of
the cost of repairs has been received as well as permission from
the Office of Academic Affairs to spend the money needed.
We now have our estimates for the cost of repair to the
chime mechanism, said UF Carrilonneur Willis Bodine. This has
been sent to the Administration. The Administration is picking
up the entire bill for repairs, which comes to a little less that
SI,OOO- about $940, to be exact.
The purchase order is on the desk of Department Chairman
Reid Poole, awaiting his signature. Once it is sent, Bodine said,
it is only a matter of time before the order is received by the
factory, the parts ordered, and a service representative arrives to
install the new mechanism.
After its repaired, well be all set to go, Bodine said. Im
not letting him (the service representative) off the campus until
the chimes are in working order.
Bodine estimated that the service representative, who works
out of Jacksonville, should be on campus to carry on repairs
within about two or three weeks.
At the same time, five new music rolls have been ordered for
the chimes. The rolls, which are punched by hand and operate
on the same principle as rolls for player pianos, contain a varied
musical content.
One roll contains academic and school songs, such as the alma
mater. Still another roll, Bodine said, contains religious tunes
and will be saved for periods of religious emphasis such as
Rcligion-in-Life Week.
Another roll will contain some classical themes and English
change-ringing, which Bodine described as a conplcx system of
ringing four pairs of bells in pre-arranged patterns.
What we havent been able to afford are some rolls for
football season, containing the alma mater and fight song of
each school in the Southeastern Conference. Two rolls, each
costing about $65, would give us all the alms maters and fight
songs of the SEC schools, he said.
But we dont have any more money left for those weve
spent what we have on the impairs and the five rolls already
ordered.
Delta Chi helped the cause by donating SIOO for new music
rolls.
Century Tower chimes will operate under two different
schedules when repairs are finalized. Under one schedule,
Westminster chimes will strike the quarter hour, much like the
chimes of Big Ben.
Under the second schedule, the musical selections on the
music rolls will ring five minutes after the end of each class.
Each number should last an average of two or three minutes.
The tower chimes have been silent since last August, when
several pins in the complex clock mechanism which is the
timing device controlling the regulated playing of music
jammed.
Since then the music department has had to work through
channels to arrange to have the chimes fixed and to secure the
money to pay for repairs, Bodine said.

Special Student Theater Prices
Appear Unlikely In Near Future

Special student rates for all
Gainesville theaters are not
likely in the near future.
Two weeks ago the Plaza
Theater began giving students a
25 cent reduction in prices, but
the managers of the Center,
Florida and State theaters have
no plans for reducing their rates
for students.
Vernon Carr, manager of the

FLAVET APARTMENTS:
Challenge In
Interior
Design

By CHRIS SCHAUSEIL
Alligator Staff Writer
Can an interior design major
find happiness in a Flavet
apartment
Mrs.Wirginia Stine thinks so,
and nas redecorated her room
into a magazine picture to prove
it. Both she and her husband
Ronald, an engineering student,
are UF students living in Flavet,
the married housing on campus
- shoddy outside, raw and
rough on the inside.
But Mrs. Stine doesnt think it
is hopeless to spend a lot of time
and effort in decorating the
Flavet apartment. Even if
apartment living is only
temporary it is two or three
years of your life, she says.
These apartments are ideal for
experimenting with wall paper,
combining colors, or trying your
hand at painting and sewing, she
feels.
I dont think we would have
wanted to try and put up
wallpaper for the first time in a
beautiful new home, Mrs. Stine
says.
Flavet residents are given free
paint for the inside, and thats
a start.
Mrs. Stines handiwork
impresses visitors immediately as
they .walk into the small
apartment done in avocado and
chocolate against off-white
walls. The kitchen, normally in
full view as you walk into a
Flavet apartment is blocked off
by a swinging door put up by
her husband, Ron.
Guests catch glimpses of
artificial greenery spotlighted by
a hanging lamp, artwork,
including Mrs. Stines own
needlework, and an unusual
china cabinet with a stained glass
door.
An old victrola is antiqued in
light green, as is the rocking
chair and footstool beside it.
The nice thing about

INPRESSIVE HANDIWORK
... The Stines decorate as their hobby

antiquing is the lack of
preparation for it. All you have
to do is make sure the wood is
smooth, Mrs. Stine said.
You can cover up and old
grade B Florida pine to look like
a new piece of furniture.
A stunning effect can be
achieved just as well with
creativeness and labor she feels,
at a minimal cost. Tools needed
are sewing machine antiquing
kit, and an eye for a bargain.
The avocado shag rug, for
instance, is a factory second.
Flaws that would make a whole
carpet unusable for a hotel
might not even show up in the
small amount needed for an
apartment.
Material can also be bought
for a fraction of its market value
at mill outlets, of which there
are two in Gainesville.
She has made all the
draperies, dinner napkins,
bedspreads, and table coverings,
as well as pillows for decoration.
The linen casement, or open
weave, used in the living room
drapes cost her 77 cents a*yard,
instead of the retail price of $6.
Fur pelts bought in St.
Augustine for $1.25 were made
into luxurious throw pillows,
with velvet backing and foam
rubber stuffing (69 cents a
pound). Similar pillows sell for
as much as sls in Gainesville.
Daises and butterflies, cut
from $1 worth of felt brighten
their little girls bedroom wall.
Curtains are an inexpensive
substitute for cabinet doors,
which the Flavet apartment
lacked. Even if the dishes are
stacked as neatly as posslibe, it
still has a cluttered effect.
Space, cost, and function are
guideposts for furniture in a
small apartment. That leaves out
big beautiful lamps that need a
table by themselves.
So Mrs. Stine designed her
own. A wooden pole containing
a light inside has brass flaps
which open much like a pourer

on a salt box to direct the light
to the desired spot. This cuts the
glare, and prevents the light
from spreading all over the
place like a lampshade would
do.
A couch was something they
felt was worth the investment
because you can always use it.
In addition, the one that came
with the apartment was
unsightly and uncomfortable.
Were getting back to the
colonial style in that form
follows function, she said
referring to the low toadstool
chairs flanking the decorator
table.
Originally that style of chair
was used by colonial women as a
stepping stool with a one-plank
back used for balance, she
explained.
Mrs. Stines knowledge of
furniture styles and decorating
comes from experience as well as
her interior design courses. For
two summers sh e has worked at
a local furniture stores display
department, and this summer
she will do the interior of a
$40,000 model home.
Eventually she would like to
work with an architect.
What are the biggest
drawbacks to redecorating in the
Flavet apartments?
The heater, definitely, she
says. It sticks out from the wall
into the living room and cant be
moved. Some rooms have a
water heater in the same spot,
but they can cover it with an
attractive folding panel. But this
cant be done in their apartment
since it would block off the
heat.
The bare pipes sometimes
showing in these apartments can
be made less noticeable by
attention-getting decorations she
added.
In the kitchen they had
replaced the old linoleum which
had rotted and come loose in
spots.
Its cheap linoleum, but it

doesnt have to be beautiful,
she says about the improvement.
Some of her most treasured
pieces are a combination of luck
and ingenuity. The stained glass
door on the china cabinet is
actually a window form an old
house the Stines had discovered
was being torn down. And the
cabinet is really a bookshelf
set against the wall that is
painted the same color as the
shelf to give a cabinet effect.
A 150-year-old oil wick lamp
she discovered in her
grandmothers attic now gleams
from days polishing next to the
front door. It originally came
from a merchant ship.

grandmother gave her the old
victrola, she and her husband cut

them with brass lattice work

more dramatic effect.
Each couple has something
they splurge on though. For the
Stines its brass and copper
articles, and artwork. Odd
craftwork that you can get in a
college town is also worth
spending money on because she
wont live in one all the time.
But the secret to buying
anything for a room is planning
ahead of time for color schemes
and furniture that goes together.
Otherwise youll end up with
a patchwork quilt.
It all boils down to a matter
of value judgment, for the cost
of a fifth of vodka, or a night
out at the movies, you can buy
curtains for a kitchen shelf, or
an antiquing kit, Mrs. Stine says.
My husband and I enjoy
building things, and decorating
the house together. Its our
hobby.

Union Board Os Managers
Passes Two-Board Charter

By GLENDA COHN
Alligator Staff Writer
A new charter for the Reitz
Union was passed Tuesday by
the Reitz Union Board of
Managers over the objections of
Student Government
representatives.
At the meeting, the Board and
the senate representatives
clashed over a part of the
proposed charter calling for a
change from the one-board
system to the two-board system
of management.
Under the two-board plan, the
Union Program council, which is
responsible for all activities of
the union, will be independent
of the Board of Managers. Under
the one-board plan the Board of
Managers is directly responsible
for union activities.
SG Vice President Gary
Goodrich and Senate Pres. Jack
Vaughn also objected to the
apparent lack of authority of SG
in union policy-making as
indicated in the new charter.
Concerning the two-board
plan of management, Vaughn
objected on the grounds that
operations of the union can
best be conceived by those
people who plan the programs.
They should be under the
responsibility of the people
involved in organizing and
running the Union.
Vaughn introduced an
amendment in the form of a
substitute constitution to be
used as a basis for discussion,
calling for a one-board
organization and greater SG
voice in union affairs. The
amendment was defeated.
Goodrich contended that SG
was bejpg ignored in union
management and suggested that
a committee of SG
representatives and board

Apollo 9 Craft
Perfect Again
SPACE CENTER, Houston (UPI) Apollo 9's hard-working
astronauts triggered three precision firings of their main spacecraft
engine Tuesday, driving themselves deeper into space and proving the
connection between their command and lunar landing spacecraft is
strong enough for a flight to the moon.
You guys, we re perfect again, a jubilant Russell Schweickart
radioed back to the ground after the last blast of the 20.500-pound
thrust engine.
Schweickart, james McDivitt and David Scott riding in the
cone-shaped command ship and pushing the bug-like lunar lander with
their crafts nose climbed into an orbit reaching 313 miles high with
the final engine boost.
With the first two engine firings they fish tailed their linked-up
moonship through space, trying out the command ship's guidance
system and checking the strength of the 12 latches which hold the
moon lander tight against the Apollo cabin's pointed nose.
The last 28-sccond maneuver, final activity scheduled on the second
day of their 10-day earth orbit mission, trimmed up their path around
the globe at altitudes from 125 to 313 miles up.
McDivitt reported that the 1,868 pounds of fuel burned during this
maneuver made their Gumdrop command ship weigh less than the
Spider landing craft for the first time.
Hey, Jim, I think you must like the heavy jobs, capsule
communicator Stuart Roosa radioed up from Mission Control.
Soon as you got this one lighter, now tomorrow youre going to
crawl into the new heavy one, Roosa said.
I always have been in favor of heavies, McDivitt quipped back.
Wednesday morning McDivitt and Schweickart were scheduled to
make their first venture into the landing craft, getting its first manned
checkout in space during Apollo 9, and spend the day checking it out.
i 3
A problem 'that has marred past manned spaceflights fogged
cabin windows started appearing during the afternoon. McDivitt
reported a thin rim of fog around his rendezvous window, and some
mist on the hatch window.
The linkup between Gumdrop and Spider created a
58-foot-long cragt that looked like an insect. The three spacemen were
riding in the cone shaped craft but two of them planned to crawl into
the Spider early Wednesday morning.
Nixon Desegregation
Crackdown Planned
WASHINGTON (UPI) The Nixon Administration announced
Tuesday a crackdown on suspected violations of federal school
desegregation laws in 14 non-Southern states from California to
Connecticut.
In a report to Congress, Secretary Robert H. Finch of the
Department of Health, Education and Welfare said that in the past,
the efforts of this department have fallen far short of equal
enforcement of the law. North and South.
Acting under the 1964 Civil Rights Act forbidding federal financial
assistance to any local program or activity practicing discrimination,
Finch said officials of six school districts in five states had been
notified of apparent violations of the act. He said two other districts
had been referred to the Justice Department for possible action.
Altogether, school districts in these states arc under review or have
been recommended for review, he said:
Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana,
Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey,
Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Furthermore, Finch reported that HEW has bolstered the Northern
staff of its civil rights office to the point that it is bigger than the staff
assigned to enforce nondiscrimination requirements in Southern
elementary and secondary schools. These actions represent only a
beginning, Finch told Congress.

South Viets
Attacked By
Red Tanks
SAIGON (UPI) The
Communists sent tanks into
act ion against allied forces in
South Vietnam Tuesday for only
the second time in the war. But
U.S. planes destroyed two of the
10 Soviet-made tanks and
knocked out two other
armored vehicles advancing on a
Green Beret camp in the
Central Highlands.
American tanks of the 4th
Infrantry Division also joined in
the fight against the Red
armored force, made up most of
PTt6 model tanks weighing 14
tons and equipped with a 76mm
cannon capable of firing a shell
almost four miles.
American warplanes flew at
least 30 air strikes against the
Communist armored unit in
jungled mountains 274 miles
northwest of Saigon near the
Ben Het Special Forces camp.
The area is about six miles from
the tri-border region where
South Vietnam, Cambodia and
Laos meet.
U.S. spokesmen said the tanks
were sighted by a U. S. spotter
palne on a road leading into the
Central Highlands from Laos,
taking part in a ground probe
against the isolated Green
Beret outpost.
The 23-foot long tanks, each
with a three-man crew, were
used only once previously in the
Vietnam War- in February,
1968, when Communist overran
the Lang Vei Special Forces
camp just below the
Demilitarized Zone near Khe
Sanh.
U.S. Officials speculated the
tanks, accompanied by
amphibious scout vehicles, were
heading toward the Special
Forces camp and a nearby U.S.
fire support base which had
received heavy mortar fire late
Monday night. Spokesmen said
two Americans were killed while
government losses were
described as light in the attack.
American jets pounded the
region throughout the day
Tuesday, but it was not known
whether the remnants of the
Communist armored unit had
been able to slip back into Laos
or Cambodia.

Put Up
Or Shut Up
United-First party presidential candidate Clyde Taylor
vowed Tuesday to offer a referendum which will enable
students to abolish Student Government under its present
constitutional setup at the end of his term of office, if he is
elected.
lf Student Government cannot truly serve the
students, then it should not exist. If the students do not
believe that SG is really doing anything for them, then lets
get rid of it and give the students what they want, Taylor
said.
ln other words, he continued, I am asking my party
and all the students on this campus to put up or shut up.
Thus did Clyde Taylor pledge himself to service if he was
elected. The story appeared on the front page of the
Alligator, January 24, 1968.
Taylor was finally elected to the post he sought, but not
before losing by a narrow margin to his opponent, Bill
Mcride. The first election was overturned by the Honor
Court, and Taylor swept to victory in a landslide the second
time around.
The night he won, February 8, 1968, he said, Its not
the ultimate, but rather the beginning of fourteen months
of hard work.
His prophecy came true. SG has worked hard. It has
made many mistakes. But it has tried to serve the student
body, as did the Shepherd administration the year before.
Today Taylor keeps his promise. The polls will open, and
the students can render their verdict on their government.
During the past several weeks, the Alligator has tried to
analyze Student Government, what it does and does not do.
We have tried to explain the whys and wherefores.
We have recommended that the student body vote to
retain Student Government, for the basic reason that
although abolishing SG will resolve the problems caused by
SGs failures, it will also destroy the good that SG has
accomplished.
We urge readers to vote today, to become, as they ask of
SG, involved.
Vote to keep SG. Vote to set up a study commission to
seek reasonable, practical reform for Student Government.
For the last time, put up or shut up.

Speaking Out

You must decide the fate of
Student Government on
Wednesday, March 5. You
probably do not care. Why
should you care, Student
Government hasnt cared about
you. As student government has
functioned in the past it deserves
to be abolished.
Again the vested interests of
the campus demagogues are
being served at the expense of
every student. By not holding
the referendum on whether or
not to abolish Student
Government in upcoming
general election less than six
school weeks away it will cost
the student body nearly a
thousand dollars. But remember
this general election is when a
large portion of the students
turn out to voice their opinions.
This would be risking too
much and besides that thousand
dollars could be put to some
good use possibly to provide
scholarships for deserving
students. It is far more
politically expedient to spend
that extra thousand dollars to
finance a farcical special election
in which the vested interests can
guarantee a favorable turnout to
retain their system of spoils.
It is time to ask for a change.
Student Government has just
recently begun to skim the
surface of facing the real issues
and problems of our campus,
community and society.
Constructive change has just

Ham And Grits

Let SG Know Today

Student Government, it has been said in this
column, is generally not responsive to its
constituents needs but it is caught up in this
dilemma not from a lack of trying.
SG, it seems at least during the Clyde Taylor
administration, has met the students more than
halfway. Today it is putting up or shutting up.
The fault with SG lies in the fact that it doesnt
really know what students are thinking. This is
pointed out by the turn-out at election time.
During last years two presidential elections the
greatest number of voters coming out to the pells
was about 8,100 less than half the electorate.
From this apparent cross-section of the student
body, student leaders claim a mandate for
implementing their campaign promises. But a large
part of the voters are either from fraternity blocs or
dorm residents.
As a consequence most SG projects are geared for
them.
There are about 3,000 fraternity men and 6,000
dorm residents on campus. Coupled with these are
another 1,200 sorority members.
These persons do get out to vote for the most
part. Frats vote in bloc and so do most dorm
people.
Sorority girls probably have a higher proportion
of voters -about 70 per cent than do their
independent sisters.
In short, these people care, for one reason or
another, enough to get out and exercise their
minimal and responsible obligation as a student
The point is that the great quiet -and
apathe tic mass of independent, off-campus
students doriT "bother to come on campus a
simple task and vote.
SG has not forgotten these people, but for the
most part they have left their government in the
dark on how they feel.
Elections are widely publicized in the Alligator.

There is no excuse for not voting. Especially today.
If they complain that SG is run by frats, dorm
bloc, Florida Blue Key and political cronies, it is
largely their own fault.
If at least half the off-campus residents take the
time to vote, SG can be a viable vehicle for doing
things for all the student body. Right now SG gets
only a one-sided opinion.
Since SG is trying, is it to much to ask that as
students try a little more, also?
For the first time in recent history voting
machines today are placed at strategic campus
gathering places. A student going to class cant help
but run into them.
Students, instead of being caught up in their own
little world of self-service, should stop the few
seconds it takes to pull the three levers in the
polling booths and continue to do so in future
elections.

the greedy few who have taken
advantage of the unconcerned
student. But here is fair warning,
students are beginning to care.
This is every students
opportunity to begin demanding
constructive change in an
organization to which they
belong. Democracy and
representative government can
work. Student government must
justify its existence by serving
the interest of the students, the
University and the general
community and you can insure
this by your vote on Wednesday.
Vote to retain student
government on your terms and
challenge its present and future
leaders to adopt constructive
changes by engaging in
re-evaluation and introspection
of the organizational structure,
purposes and goals of student
government at the University of
Florida. Its your choice.

A Critical Look At Student Government

By JiM HOLLIS
>*
During the spring of last year
President OConnell set up the
Action Conference to try to
work out the problems on this
campus which lead to student
unrest, and to find methods of
how to handle that unrest. As of
yet the Minimum Conduct Task
Force has refused to take up the
question of conduct. The
distribution of students on the
conference seems to be
unrealistic and unbalanced
towards the left.
There is one engineer, this
author, while the ACLU
(American Civil Liberties Union)
has at least four members. Law
students and student politicos
make up the vast majority.
There has been block voting on
the part of the students to select
a chairman to put across specific
issues, yet these same students
have accused and condemned
the members of the University
Senate of trying to block-vote.

Red, White, And Blue Trash:
Our Flag Is Defiled Again

MR. EDITOR:
In the wake of Gentry,
Claxton, et. al., weve seen (or
heard of) other more or equally
serious violations go unpunished.
I feel it my duty as a
law-abiding citizen to report
yet another violation without
punishment.
We all know its against both
state and federal statutes to
publicly bum an American flag
in a degrading manner. What
most dont know is there are
other equally degrading acts
which receive an equal treatment
by the courts.
The relevant statute reads:
No person shall publicly
mutilate, deface, defile, defy,
trample on, or by word or act
cast contempt upon any such
flag, standard, color, ensign or
shield. Fla. Stat., sec. 256.06.
Section 256.08 defines a flag
as beirig even' a fn ere
representation. All thats
required is the appropriate
colors and some semblance of
design (stars, stripes, etc.).
You may wonder who the
violators) is (are). If one looks
to the east of the SAE house one

While speaking of
apportionment, it should be
noted that the Student Senate is
itself grossly unbalanced. Last
the Student Senate spent a
considerable amount of time to
reapportion itself yet it still
needs Work in some sections.
One. of th6se areas includes the
off campus skqts which are filled
in the fall elections.
Os the 23 off campus seats on
the Student Senate, 18 are held
by people who are in fraternities
or sororities, which is
approximately 78.3% of the
seats whereas those people make
up less than 25% of the off
campus student population.
The Student Senate controls a
large amount of money which is
derived from student tuition.
Some of the uses for this money,
like the aforementioned support
of the University Report, require
a little closer scrutiny. With all
the clamor about who they will
budget, and some groups being
small interest groups, etc. ... it

will notice a large garbage
container, painted, red, white
and blue with stars and stripes
represented on it. According to
both federal and state laws, this
violation is as contemptuous as
burning or mutilation.
Appellate courts have upheld

Wild Attacks On JOMO
Discredited By Fullwood

MR. EDITOR:
In the March 3 Alligator you printed two letters
- one by C. Y. Welles and one by Charles Fullwood,
the State Minister of Information for JOMO.
I object violently (if you will pardon the
expression) to the logic, or rather the lack of logic,
with which Mr. Welles irresponsibly attacks Mr.
Fullwood.
Mr. Welles makes wild and unsubstantiated claims
about the alleged views and attitudes of Mr.
Fullwood and his colleagues, which are plainly
contradicted in the very next column, by the
well-written letter from Mr. Fullwood himself.
Mr. Welles claims that Mr. Fullwood has said that
the white community has no rights. And he fails to
quote Mr. Fullwood.
Mr. Welles goes on to claim that Mr. Fullwood

is interesting to look at the
official budget for the Student
Senate itself. Their budget is
$10,030 and contains the
following items:
Personnel $ 4,800
Supplies 730
Misc 4,500
Total $10,030
That $4,500 miscellaneous
item seems a little unrealistic
and probably should be placed
in the S-18, special funds,
classification so that all student
organizations could have access
to it.

than a few engineering students
unhappy; more so than any
other single S.G. activity. After a

engineering student to draft a
proposal for block seating and
says that he will consider this

decency and advancement in the human soul. And
he compares Mr. Fullwood and his colleagues to the
Ku Klux Klan.
I fail to see any similarity between JOMO and the
Klan. I submit that Mr. Fullwoods letter quickly
exposes Mr. Welles letter as being wfld emotional
ranting, unsupported by facts or logic. It is also an
eloquent statement of how the black man
experiences his social position, and I feel that as
such it ought to be respected.
Fortunately, men like Mr. Welles eventually seem
to bring about their own demise. Not so
fortunately, history consistently shows that these
men also enjoy great success in pulling the rest of
civilized society down with them.
MIKE ROBINSON

An October IVbS surrey of Florida
engineers revealed that IbJ of 2IV students
believed that Student Government was not
doing a good job of representing the
majority of students. Two-thirds of those
surveyed voted in the last Student
Government election. Even so. over
three-fourths would not advocate the
abolishment of Student Government.

To criticize someone, or a
group of people, is of no use to
anyone unless a solution is
offered in the process. We, as a
group, have long been critical of
Student Government, and have
not actively tried to help solve
the problems. We have, as was
mentioned at the start of this
article, for the most part
remained aloof from the
problem by our own choice.
Considering t|ie importance of
student actions on the political
scene, both nationally and
internationally, as well as the
local campus scene, we must not
allow ourselves as a college to
practice isolationism from the
daily university life. If student
politics are to be a proving
ground for future state and
national politicians, then the
engineering students, as future
leaders in their communities,
should become involved here
and now. To merely sit back and
say that we do not have enough
time is an excuse, not a
justification.

warning of the violation anc.
should prompt their speedy am.
patriotic action to remove this
eyesore.
Tempus fugit, fratres. Show
us youre that which you say
you are.
J. STEPHEN CLAYTON ILW

Wednesday, March 5, 1969, The Florida Alligator,

If we allow such minority
groups as the SSOC to influence
the decision making of our
student government without
stating our own position, then
we are without just cause to
complain about the results. Most
engineering students are as
concerned about the draft and
its effects on their lives as the
next student; but, as men they
accept it as part of their duties
as a citizen, just as they accept
Statics and Dynamics as part of
their studies as an engineer;
neither case is very agreeable foi*
the majority of us.
Last term, by a joint effort of
the Benton Engineering Council
and the Florida Engineering
Society, the three engineering
student senate seats were filled
with men who are interested in
solving problems and
representing the engineers. These
seats had been vacated by
graduation and other reasons,
leaving us with no
representation. This is a step in
the right direction towards
becoming involved.
There is no way of telling how howmany
many howmany engineers volunteered for
the Action Conference, but if we
are to be critical of things like
this we must be willing to accept
the extra work it involves. There
are several vacancies as of this
writing, and the author has
suggested that engineers should
be used to Fill those spots and
has submitted several names.
Clyde Taylor, student body
president, has expressed a
willingness to comply with this
request and the proof of the
pudding will be seen by the time
this article comes out in print.
In short, there is evidence that
we are becoming involved. If
things are to be changed, our
involvement could mean the
difference as to what direction
these changes take. We should
therefore offer our involvement
as a solution to what we think is
wrong with Student
Government. We shouldnt be so
naive as to think that we can
immediately solve all the
problems, but considering what
has been going on, we can not
ireTpbuilm
If one engineer can look at
Student Government and come
up with as much that needs
looking into as there is in this
article, just think what the
whole college could do if it
tried.

Chinese Accused Os Evading Responsibility

MOSCOW (UPI) Thirty Thirty-four

and several dozens wounded
in Sundays border clash with

were murdered, displayed to a

W. German Elections
Harassed By Soviets
BERLIN (UPI) The- Soviet Union placed its 40,000 troops
around West Berlin on alert Tuesday and closed the citys main
highway to the West for two hours on the eve of the West German
presidential electoral college meeting.
The United States asserted allied air access rights in defiance of
Communist threats Tuesday by flying West German Chancellor Kurt
George Kiesinger here for the election in an Air Force plane, a Cl 18
cargo aircraft.
The Soviets lifted the highway blockade, the fourth in as many
days, when the U.S. Mission complained it violated Western access
rights to the city. The 110-mile highway between West Berlin and
Helmstedt is the only one of three roadway links with the West on
which the allied powers are permitted to move military units and
supplies.
The Soviets said they had closed the highway because of
Soviet-East German military maneuvers underway in the area near the
West German border. A French and two British military convoys were
halted on the highway while Communist troops and tanks moved
around them, and Soviet officers refused entry to US. and British
military police units at the Marienbom-Helmstedt checkpoint.
The last of the 1,036 delegates to the electoral college arrived
Tuesday night by commercial airliners to join the more than 900 who
came Monday to plot final strategy for the election of a successor to
President Heinrich Luebke.
The two candidates are Defense Minister Gerhard Schroeder of the
Christian Democratic Party and Justice Minister Gustav Heinemann of
the Social Democrats. The first secret ballot will be taken Wednesday
at 10 a.m., 4 a.m. EST. If neither candidate receives the 519 votes
required for absolute majority on the first two ballots, a third will be
taken requiring only a plurality for victory.
The Communists contend the electoral college meeting here is
illegal because West Berlin is not a part of West Germany. They
banned delegates from traveling here by land or water routes,
disclaimed responsibility for the safety of flights in the allied air
corridors and threatened other unspecified retaliatory moves against
West Berlin if the elections are held.

here but no incidents were
reported.
Moscow radio accused
Chinese Communist Party
Chairman Mao Tse-tung of
increasing nationalist h>steria
in the country by staging mass
demonstrations.
The broadcast was the first
Soviet comment on the clash
which occurred over an island in
the Ussuri River on the frozen
Sino-Siberian border.

Senate subcommittee an array of
torture instruments he claimed
were used on prisoners.
Murton said a 1966
investigation showed that
Arkansas prisons were festering
with inmate abuse, threats,
shooting of prisoners, gratuitous
beating with rubbefijioses, black
jacks, brass knuckles, ax handles,
torture, stompings, lashings,
kickings, sexual perversion and
other forms of punishment.
Further, he charged,
youngsters as young as 14 are
sent to Arkansas prisons where
they fall under the control of a
group of armed inmates, some of
whom are vicious, violent and
emotionally deranged felons.
On the racial situation,
Murton testifies: The Negro
prisoners were segregated in even
worse facilities than the whites.
They ate only the scraps from
the table after the whites
finished eating.
e.
When we treat men like wild
animals, we turn them into wild
animals, Murton summarized.
Our prisons, in varying
degrees, are monster-producing
factories.
The torture instruments
shown by Murton included
clubs, whips and a devilish
device he termed the Tucker
telephone. It consisted of an
old-fashioned crank telephone
with two loose wires.
Murton related that an inmate
was stripped and strapped down,
the live wires attached to
sensitive parts of his body and
the crank turned to generate a
flow of electricity until the
prisoner faints.
The Arkansas prison official
came into the news last year
when a number of bodies were
found buried near the Cummins
Prison Farm. Murton contended
they were the corpses of
prisoners slain by guards.

This is another anti-Soviet
campaign just on the eve of the
ninth congress of the Chinese
Communist Party, Moscow
radio said.
The demonstrations were the
worst outside the Soviet Union s
Peking Embassy since the
massive protests staged two
years ago by Red Guards.
Moscow radio said Pekings

Pueblo Medical Care,
From Kind To Savage
CORONADO, Calif. (UPI) North Korean doctors gave a USS
Pueblo sailor agonizing surgery without anesthetic on a jail table three
days after his capture and later made him tell a news conference about
his humane treatment.
Engineman 2.C. Steven E. Woelk, 20, Grand Rapids, Mich., told a
story of medical care that ranged from kindly to savage Tuesday
before a five-admiral Court of Inquiry into the Pueblo affair.
He was one of nine Pueblo enlisted men summoned Tuesday to
describe their 11-month ordeal in a North Korean prison after the
vessels capture Jan. 23,1968.
Woelk, who was wounded in the pelvis by shell fragments when the
North Koreans seized the Pueblo, described the jailhouse surgery to
remove them as very painful.
The North Koreans tried to exploit Woelks medical care for
propaganda and lie was later taken to an operating room where a
mock operation was staged for Communist news cameramen.
Despite the jailhouse surgery, Woelk insisted his treatment by the
North Koreans was not all bad.

Non-Violence Still
Useful For Blacks

By PHILIP MORGAN
Alligator Correspondent
In the midst of controversy
over black militants and
violence, Dr. Augustus M. Burns,
professor of American history
and American institutions,
believes that the non-violent civil
rights movement is still alive.
Local community groups
have done much and are
continuing to further the civil
rights movement of Negroes, he
said.
Dr. Bums suggested that these
local groups have effective
power in the form of economic
boycotts, making demands upon
the government and forming
their own businesses.
He commented on action that
was taken by Dr. Leon Sullivan,
a Negro preacher from
Philadelphia, who organized a
program called Opportunities
Industrialization Center, in
which Negroes donated $lO a
month for three years into a
fund.
By the end of the three years
the organization had $500,000.
Dr. Sullivan added SIOO,OOO and
they formed a corporation and
built a shopping center. This

Its just tremendous -a
great honor, said Maravich. It
speaks for itself. And Ill try to
uphold it as much as I can.
Maravich shattered the SEC
career scoring record of 2,030
points set by Mississippi States

college basketball in over a
decade, Monday became only
the fourth player to gain first
team recognition in the UPI
all-America squad in three
successive seasons.
The 7-foot-l 1 inch senior, the

welfare three years before into
high paying jobs, said Dr.
Burns. Since then they have
built more centers and housing
open to all people. This plan has
spread into 70 U.S. cities and by
the year 2000 their estimated
gross will be SSO billion.
This is just one method of
advancing their movement, he
said, and it was done within the
legal system.
It is a lie that this society has
been unresponsive. One just
needs to compare today with 30
years ago to see how far the
black man has come. He says
that he is not a blurry-eyed
idealist. This process will take
time but it can be done.

CHILDREN IN
TROUBLE:
A NATIONAL SCANDAL
100,000 children wind up In police lockups or jails every
year jails that are substandard for adults
In one juvenile home, the Monitors Pulitzer Prize winning reporter
Howard James found that more than 200 children had no beds.
They were sleeping on mats on the floor.
Conditions are shockingly substandard throughout the United
States. James saw them firsthand and gives on-the-spot reports
from over 100 representative American cities.
CHILDREN IN TROUBLE takes you into the courtroom, and
through the cold bars of juvenile institutions. It introduces you to
the officers behind the desks and the welfare workers who stand
by to make or break a case.
In a western city I found children in solitary confinement
for days and weeks awaiting court action. Some were not
even accused of breaking the law.
Sometimes the problem lies in police overreaction. Other times
the problems are due to inadequate facilities, unfair court de decisions,
cisions, decisions, ill-equipped public officials, harried
probation officers with too much to do.
CHILDREN IN TROUBLE is a discerning
survey of the inept legal procedures trap trapping
ping trapping a nations children.
Nobody really cares about our young
people in trouble
Even parents are sometimes heard snap snapping
ping snapping back in crowded courtrooms with You
take the kid!
But Howard James cares. And so does the
Monitor.
CHILDREN IN TROUBLE does more than
just report the disturbing facts of a trouble troublesome
some troublesome problem. It details more than 100
action ideas on behalf of juvenile decency.
This series is keyed to solutions-reporting. Journalist Howard
James points out just where progress is now being made, and he
outlines a blueprint for action to help turn this national scandal
into an opportunity to help American youth.

The Sport Os The Space Age

In the sky a mile-and-a-half above Stengel Field in
Western Gainesville a man steps from a single-engine aircraft
and falls to earth at 130 mph.
Thirty seconds and 5500 feet later he feels the sharp jolt
of a parachute and he descends to ground less than a yard
from the sawdust target.
This is free-fall parachuting: It is called the sport of the
space age by those who participate, yet one must wonder
whether it is the essence of the sport that attracts these
people or the search for a new experience.
The emotional exhiliaration felt by the members of the
Gator Skydivers Club can be seen in their faces and heard in
their conversation.
When man breaks the bond of earth and gravity it is a
very personal experience.
It can be described in words but it can not be felt by
them The heighth, the crisp wind, the silence, the soaring,
gliding and cushioned floating are words of reality only to
parachute jumpers.
The uninitiated can only guess.
It has been said that the only way to know something is
to experience it.
The sport and the experience await.

No More Jax Games; Bartlett Blames Crowd

By MARC DUNN
Alligator Sports Editor
UFs cagers have played their
last home basketball game in the
Jacksonville Coliseum, according
to Head Coach Tommy Bartlett.
The move is a result of poor
attendance at the West Virginia
game Monday night, 2400
spectators in 8500 seats.
Another factor is the student-fan
support the Gators have received
in Gainesville.
The fans at home have been
so great that there isnt any
reason for us to play in
Jacksonville, Bartlett said. If l
hadnt scheduled West Virginia

up a quick four point first

as they had to come back from
on early loss to defeat the Sigma
Nus twice before meeting the
Delts.
Down in the early quarters
Craig Savage took up the slack in
the second half collecting I 1
points and Paul Dossick and Ray
Robbins all hit crucial baskets in
the last few seconds.
Jim Hadley and Ralph Erickson
led the way for the Delts with
14 and 12 each as these two 65
giants each had two or three
shots at the basket every time
they came down on offense.
With three men standing close to
65 for the Delts and Rick
Perillo the tallest TEP at 62, the
Delts easily won the rebounding
battle. In fact, the Delts scored
four easy baskets on missed foul
attempts.

The only games played in
Jacksonville in the future will be
the Gator Bowl Tournament,
which isnt a home game, and
possibly a tournament already
scheduled for Jacksonville next
year.
I am trying to get the other
teams coming down for the
Jacksonville affair to play one
game each in Gainesville and one
each over there, the Head
Coach said.
Playing on its home court is
supposed to give a team the
advantage.

In the Gators case this has
been very true. A win Saturday
night over Alabama will give UF
an I I-I home record, the best in
the Southeastern Conference.
Over the last three seasons UF
has a 30-3 record at home, with
one loss each season. The losses
have been to Tennessee,
Mississippi State and this year to
Vanderbilt.
