DAYLI GHT climbs over the horizon

This is a CAM PUSof changing faces and moods.

People relax where they will, not caring about onlookers, or

nosy passersby. Students congregate for discussion, or laughs, or just for the

sake of companionship. And at times they are forced together with others . crowded, thrown about . at times like registration,

or football games, or college concerts. And, being thrown together with people of all types, they begin to learn something about human nature.

They learn from the campus, because they are learning from themselves.

Gator Homecoming, Sixty-Two



The UF Cheerleaders lead Gator spirit through the Homecoming parade Friday.


The Gators stomped the Vanderbilt Commodores 42-7 on Homecoming Day.

Racing rockets and a disappearing century tower! Familiar to the University of Florida campus? Only at Homecoming. The Alpha Tau Omegas' with their first place floats roared their rockets and raced down University Avenue in the parade. Not to be outdone, the Delta Sigma Phi's also received a first place on their float featuring a colossal hand supporting a decorative atom. Delta Upsilon showed their uniqueness as a replica of the century tower emerged from their float of the University Auditorium. Was that all that came down the campus streets that day? No, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Delta Phi Epsilon won with their elaborate multicolored floats, making it a tough Gator race in space. Bands, big names, bands, floats, and more bands passed excitingly before the students' eyes, all beginning the glory of Homecoming.
The visiting dignitaries and Blue Key members then adjourned to the gym for the annual "Smoker." The verbose politicos met again later at the Florida Blue Key Banquet. Turning the wheels of the Gatorette is a bonus feature of the Gator band at games.


Former Florida Governor Fuller Warren introduces Miss Jane Lightcap, Homecoming Sweetheart, at Gator Growl.



state and national leaders and the future hopefuls were Governor Farris Bryant, Secretary of State Tom Adams, and Senator Robert S. Kerr. The all-man banquet by no means kept wives inactive, for Mortar Board sponsored a buffet at the same time. State Representative, Mrs. George W. Johnson of Orange County spoke at this concurrent function.
Extra added attractions of the afternoon were a water show by Swim Fins and the Aqua Gators and the University of Florida Showcase in the Plaza of the Americas. Splashing out their acts for Homecoming, "Space Capades for 1962" displayed their water ingenuity centering around the homecoming theme.


Delta Sig's capture first place trophy, Blue League.
Orange League's first place float went to the ATO's.

SPE's won first in house decoration competition.


How does a Gator go? "Growl." Indeed Growl was going great this Homecoming. Gator Growl, another success of Florida Blue Key, was arranged differently this year minimizing the work for all skits participating. Competition was made steeper by the combination of awards so that fraternities and sororities vied for one first place. At Pre-Growl, emceed by the Tommy Kennington-Dutch Shaffer team, two Greek skits were presented as an addition to the traditional warm-up. As Y
the stadium filled, these early comers saw the crowning of Mrs. University of Florida-Mrs. Larry Travis, various state high school bands, drill teams, a pep rally, and several variety acts. Concluding with the introduction of honored guest, Blue Key President Jackson Brownlee, formally welcomed everyone to Homecoming.
Flying around the stadium in a sleek grey rocket which crashed to the ground with an 'explosion was Gator Growl's Master of Ceremonies, former Governor of Florida, Fuller Warren. He stepped from his space capsule on the field and walked to the platform with his space suit in hand where he conducted the presentation of skits. Gator Growl skit winner, Lambda Chi Alpha, depicted the University's crowded "space" problem. The riotous skit portrayed future campus problems created by a growing number of students crowding into classrooms, progress tests, and Beta Woods. This and other comical acts made the Gators "Growl" with laughter.
To complete the success of homecoming, the Gators in the afternoon game against Vanderbilt, placed Vandy far behind in the sports race-42 to 7. Jane Lightcap, Homecoming Sweetheart, and her attendants were presented once more at this spectacular climax to a busy weekend.



Jazz was brought to the University of Florida campus by Ray Charles and his band on November 9th, in the Florida Gymnasium before an estimated crowd of 8,400. The two and a half hour show was Fall Frolics, 1962. The first portion of the performance was taken over by Ray Charles' sixteen piece band, playing everyE 08 ,4 0 0 H e a r thing from rock and roll to cha cha and from old standards to jazz. The audience listened attentively but suspense built up for the appearance of the big man himself.

After intermission, Ray Charles was led on stage R a y C h a rle's by a fellow musician, setting off an electric response.
Audience appreciation and respect for his ability were shown by tremendous ovations following such favorites as "Georgia," "I Can't Stop Loving You," and "Hard Hearted Hanna."

Ray Charles was not alone. An unexpected addition to the evening was solo vocalist Dorothy Clarke, who sung a piercing rendition of "Misty."


No. iw el I WW,





lEG's Fall


The Raelets, four girl vocalists, appeared on stage next and harmonized with Ray Charles to popular "Hit the Road Jack" and many more.
The performance reached its high point as the show was brought to a close with the song everyone had anticipated-"What'd I Say?," with an encore joined in by the whole audience.
Ray Charles left to a standing ovation and boarded a private plane to continue his college tour. Howie Glicken, overall chairman of Fall Frolics for IFC stated, "It was one of the most successful Frolics ever presented on campus."

"Slavery, if not extinction, would be the price of unilateral disarmament," a Harvard professor of government and history told the UF audience at the Ninth Annual Scholarship Convocation.
Dr. William Y. Elliot, advisor to the Secretary of State, termed peaceful coexistence a "Soviet sham." "Ask yourself," he said, "if Moscow means by 'peaceful coexistence' anything other than that we consent to exist on Moscow's terms."
Some 450 professors and college administrators, colorfully clad in academic regalia, marched up the aisle in the Florida Gym to the strains of "Pomp and Circumstance," in a processional which opened the convocation, one of the two formal ceremonies to be held during the year.
Convocation, equaled in importance only by Commencement"* Day, pays tribute to the academic quality of the student body by honoring those', who have excelled in their studies during the preceding school year. J. Hillis Miller Memorial Scholarships, honoring the former University President, went to four categories of students for work in 1961. In all, 22 individual scholarships were given and six campus organizations cite dfor academic excellence.

Religion-in-Life Week


Spiritual and moral conflicts rather than mental disease have crowded the psychiatrist's office and mental health clinics, world famous Viennese psychiatrist Viktor Frankl stated in one of his four speeches at UF.
Speaking as the first Religion-in-Life lecturer of the academic year, Dr. Frankl said in former days people frustrated in their struggle for meaning in life would have probably turned to a pastor, a priest, or a rabbi. Today, "they crowd clinics and offices and the psychiatrist finds himself confronted with human problems rather than real psychotic disease," he said.
Dr. Frankly is the founder of the currently popular school of logotherapy based on the concept that man's drive in life is a search for meaning. He perfected his philosophy while imprisoned in the concentration camps of Auschwitz and Dachau from 1942-45.
His appearance on campus was sponsored by the Religion-in-Life committee. He titled his four talks "Psychiatry and Man's Search for Meaning," "Basic Concepts of Logotherapy," "From Death Camp to Existentialism," "Existential Dynamics and Mental Health." In"

M music


The Gator Band is a very diversified group, being divided into six distinct organizations: the Gator Marching Band, which performs during halftimes at football games both in Florida Field and out of town whenever possible; the Gator Summer Band, which provides music in the summer; the Gator Symphonic Band, which tours and presents formal concerts; the Variety Band, which performs popular and show tunes; the Gator Concert Band, which adds pep to the basketball games and performs outdoor concerts; and the Gator Military Band, which works with the ROTC.
With the aid of the UF Athletic Association and funds from Student Government, new uniforms were purchased this year for the Band.
The lovely Gatorettes are also an integral part of this large musical group. They plan their own choreography and perform at the halftimes of football games.

Varied Program


The UF offers a varied musical program to suit P almost every need and desire. The divisions range from very large to relatively small and from instrumental to vocal. Some may be joined voluntarily and some require an audition. All are credit courses.
The largest musical organization at the UF is the
Choral Union. It is also the largest performing group of any type on campus. This December Choral Union, along with the University Symphony Orchestra and the I
University Choir, presented a magnificent performance of Bach's Christmas Oratoria.
Dr. Elwood Keister is the director of both the Choral Union and the University Choir. Last spring, the Choir journeyed to New York and Washington, D. C. on a concert tour. Members of this group are highly selected.


The Theater

Florida Players, UF's drama organization, began
its thirty-second season on campus this trimester with Lilliam Hellman's translation of Jean Anouilh's "The Lark" and followed with the work of another contemporary playwright, Jean Giraudoux, in "The Madwoman
of Chaillot."
"Lark," mounted on a presentation set, was directed
by Dr. L. L. Zimmerman, professor of speech, and starred Margaret Kaler as Joan of Arc, a peasant girl fighting the Inquisition and the English crown in her famous witchcraft trial. Others in the cast included Mike Doyle, Hal Green, Don Schweda, and Dan Wilson as Joan's accusers, and Robert Pendel as the weak, corrupt Dauphine of France.
"Madwoman," an expressionistic tale of four women
of questionable sanity doing away with the world's evil, was directed by Dr. A. W. Staub and featured Linda Lashbrook as the Chaillot madwoman. Supporting her as the other madwomen were Mimi Carr, Rose Levine,
and Diane Peifrey.
Apprentice Players, the large junior players' organization, staged its own laboratory theatre show, "Many Moons" by James Thurber, under the direction of Henry Swanson, newest member of the UF theatre
staff .
Supported by the apprentice organization, the group
draws its talent, experienced and inexperienced, from
all colleges of the university.
Productions scheduled for the winter and spring
trimesters include Checkov's "The Cherry Orchard" a-nd Capek's "The Insect Comedy." These plays as all plays presented by the players are produced in a continuing effort ". . to foster an interest in and an appreciation
of the theatre and drama at the UF."

Lyceum Council Presents:

7 -- "If I had Hammer" was a familiar note that rang
throughout a capacity crowd at the Florida Gym. The appearance of the popular folksinging group, Peter, Paul, and Mary, was a special presentation of the Lyceum Council after the Florida-FSU game during the Fall Trimester.
The Lyceum Council, as an entirely student directed organization, brings to the Florida campus outstanding performers in the field of drama and music. The six members of the council are responsible for selecting and engaging the entertainers which appear.
Other nationally known performers which also were featured during the Fall Trimester were Malcolm Frager, pianist, and the Gregg Smith Singers. The presentation in the field of drama was "The Book of Job."
Next trimester the accent will be on culture as the major programs will include Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, the impressive San Francisco Ballet, and the wonderful Broadway play "The Sound of Music."
Due to the fine work of the Lyceum Council the University of Florida students and faculty enjoy a wide variety of entertainment.




Gallery X, a small circular area in the art building was the scene of several art exhibitions throughout the trimester. Many well-known artists were invited by the faculty committee to display their work. Florida artists were favored exhibitors.
Highlighting the show was a presentation of works by John Paul Jones, an internationally famed printmaker and 13
painter. A one-man show of seven oil paintings by Eugene Massin was also shown.
Five Jacksonville artists including Memphis Woods, Marianne Bryan, Ann Williams, Kathleen David, and Marcelle Bear were featured in a group showing. An exhibition of graduate student paintings and sculpturing rounded out the fall schedule.
Pen and ink scenes, watercolors, oils, photography, and a variety of other techniques are found on exhibition. This gallery is maintained for the benefit and enjoyment of students and visitors who find pleasure in the arts.

The president of a large university has a very demanding job. It ranges all the way from personnel selection to entertaining visiting dignitaries, But the President of the University A n a to m y of Florida has an even tougher job than
most university presidents.
Dr. J. Wayne Reitz is the admino f a istrator for one of the fastest growing
universities in the south, With the space age emphasis centered in Florida, and the rapid growth of the P re s id e n t state, the UF has many problems in
keeping pace with its surroundings.
The job of president is many times a thankless one. It takes a person of firm determination to handle such a job.

The President as a person is kind, soft-spoken, and considerate of others' views. Seldom outwardly disturbed, he conducts business in a very informal and unassuming manner ... with a strong sense of integrity.
His staff sees him, as a worker, often in his office by 7: 00 a. m., and still there when everyone else has gone home.
Meetings and conferences often call the President to points throughout the state, and sometimes out of the country.
Frequently accompanied by Mrs. Reitz, the President takes part in as many student functions as he can possibly fit into his calendar. He is always willing to see students who feel a conference is necessary.
In the fall, Reitz occasionally relaxes from his responsibilities by shooting doves or fishing. Last year, golf added a new interest to his long list, but his tight schedule permits little time for too much leisure. 49

Research . the constant search for a better way to do things. With a probing, dedicated, driving curiosity, the scientist is always searching . delving into the unfamiliar answers to life.
Even the most seemingly remote studies can offer insight into many unanswered questions. One such study at the UF is concerned with the sterility of orchids, and why certain desirable crosses produce no seeds.
Dr. Y. Sagawa, a Hawaiian scientist from Japan, is the man behind this study. Sagawa and his students have reaped practical benefits from their studies, as well a's theoretical hypotheses. Cbmmercial orchid growers are also among those to gain insight from these studies.
Saglawa's vast personal collection of rare and exotic orchids collected over many years, provides the material for research. These sensitive plants have their own private greenhouse nL-ar the laboratory. Orchids. are unique among flowers because their sequences of growing is completely predictable,




Why do these men devote so much of their time and talents to studying orchids? Growing a new flower is merely a by-product of the progress. The real search is into what causes life itself. What an orchid cell has in common with every other living unit. And how the characteristics could be similar. And why.

The orchid flowers wither but leave pods which hold up to one-quarter of a million seeds beginnings of new life.

Studying under Sagawa is Herbert Israel. His work is concerned with why cells change instead of dividing equally forever.

watched through a i electron microscope which enlarges up to 250,000 times. Seeds are taken from orchid plants, and their growth actually stopped in motion by enclosing them in plastic. Then they are placed under the microscope.
It happens in an orchid just as it happens in everything alive. Cells divide and become different even though they should be exactly the same. The secret lies hidden in every nucleus, and will be surrendered only after being pondered and probed, gently but persistently taken apart and put back together. Maybe tomorrow.

Israel trims plastic to examine seed tissue. Glass knife slices seed enclosed in plastic. The search followed under the electron microscope is why a cell becomes an orchid seed.


The search continues, from how life is formed to how life is destroyed. Laboratories in the Medical Science building are investigating disease virus. *o

The purpose is to discover how much a newly discovered defense produced by cells will stop how much disease. Life strives to protect itself .. but needs help.


The search for a way to preserve life by studying disease is a vital one, and requires constant testing, constant observation. Mike Cawley explores cancer's fatal symptoms on mice. A. Manyoka studies polio on chick embryo cells.

Over $7 million of sponsored research is taking place on the UF campus now. Funds from the federal government and private foundations are financing instruments from nuclear reactors down to the smallest microscope.
The spectrum of unsolved problems is as wide as the range of expense. The Humanities focus on the behavior of man, while physicists are concerned with all existence ... the behavior of the smallest nucleus.
Every area is constantly searching for a better way. No research can be new. It builds on discoveries accumulated since man began asking questions. Old lines of thought are discarded, changed, proven.
These are scientists ... devoted to their fields because they like them. They must constantly criticize their own beliefs and strive to be objective in work which shapes the changing pattern of living.
Research demands a high price in time and patience, but it cannot exist without a special quality of imagination. Curious minds must satisfy themselves, and if they add to unknown facets of the universe, so much the better.
These are the explorers of life ... the scientists. Many times misunderstood. Many times unappreciated. These are the men who are devoted to the living order itself, and who thrive on research. These are the men who are constantly searching for a better way.

But the staff survived .. and so did the Seminole. Editor Bill Dowling, striving for his idea of a trimester yearbook, kept pushing the staff for harder work and longer hours throughout the trimester. And most of the staff followed his request and stuck to their jobs responsibly.

Off ice

As in all publication work, the business office has its deadlines ... end of the month statements. Business offices previously divided have this year been consolidated into one Central office in charge of "economic motivation" for all publications. The idea of anyone being financially rewarded for their many hours spent on publications is frowned upon by the Treasurer's office who would rather spend the money for alligator pens or bicycle racks. Dealing with the Treasurer is another task of the Business Office.
The newly created position of assistant Business Manager in the future will be part of an intern program for the managing position. All positions are filled by application to, and approval of, the Board.
The Business Office handles all advertising, circulation, and bookkeeping. Circulation manager is kept especially busy with this year's daily Alligator and Trimester Seminole.
The goal sought is a better coordination and communication, a closer working relationship, and a 44 better overall view of the financial organization picture.

Carol Buller, Skip Brown, and David Lawrence head up the staff for the Gator Greek publication.

The Gator Greek, a struggling
G ato r publication which has not won
the support it desired, is the official publication of the Interfraternity Council, and G re e k includes news of both fraternity and sorority functions. It was headed up this year by Editor David Lawrence, Jr., and published news aimed specifically at Greeks.
Because of lack of funds, and many other factors, the Gator Greek is published only five times during the academic year. This may be one of the factors which contributes to its lack of effectiveness as a communications effort among Greeks.
However, the Gator Greek has been found quite instrumental during rush weeks at the beginning of each trimester, and at other times during the year when fraternity and sorority functions are at a peak.
The staff of the newspaper included Carol Buller, Sorority Editor; Mike Gora, Sports Editor; Mike Colodny and Sam Zorn, Editorial Staff; Bill Pennell, Circulation Manager, and Skip Browne, Business Manager. Was the ancient Greek goddess of typing like this one?


A much needed addition to student publications this year was the Composition Lab, headed by Don Addis and Ann Holmes.
The lab, well equipped with a headline machine for photographically setting headlines for the Alligator, an automatic waxer for paste-up work, many art tables and supplies, and hard working talent, has saved quite a bit Qf time and money for student publications.
Responsible for the laboiatory's operations and also for all student publication functions is Board of Student Publications Executive Secretary K. B. Meurlott.
Meurlott, who began the publication lab build-up, has enabled the Alligator and Seminole to save money on printing costs, and has built up advertising revenue for the Alligator through the laboratory's artists and equipment.
The laboratory has also aided other student publications in their posters, brochures, and other printing problems. Addis confers with Alligator staff on dummy paste-ups.

In his three years as a varsity Gator Larry Libertore has gone from hero to goat more times than the Orange Peel has been banned.
This season, after being hampered by early injuries, the 138 pound Libertore has developed into one of the best defensive safetymen in the Southeastern Conference.
It is this spirit, which Libertore showed in victory in the 1960 campaign, in defeat in 1961, and in coming back to aid the Gators after being injured in 1962, that has characterized the entire Gator squad this year.
The Gators refused to quit after losing to Georgia Tech, Duke, and LSU. The Auburn Tigers can attest to this.
Whether the Gators' season ends with the Miami game or a post season bowl game makes little difference.
The comeback spirit of the Fighting Gators has turned a season which could have ended in complete disaster into a season which promises to be one long remembered by Florida fans.

The Gators' new three team system worked to perfection against the Maroons. A 24 yard TD burst by Sammy Mack and two one yard plunges one by Larry Libertore, the other by Jim O'Donnell gave the Gators a 19-9 opening victory. Both the Big Blue and Go Gator units moved the ball. The Sidewinders; stopped the three MSU drives which set up Sammy Dantone's three field goals. Three TD's beat three field goals.

Ga. Tech, Duke

Florida didn't wreck Tech. The failure of the Gators to move the ball on the Tech forward wall spelled defeat. In order to loosen up the opposition's defenses (Tech had been seen in an 11 man line,) Tom Shannon took over the quarterback slot on the Big Blue when the Gators met Duke in Jax.
Three second quarter TDs gave the Gators a 21-7 halftime edge over the Duke Devils. Shotgun Shannon fired a 21 yard strike to end Sam Holland, sophomore Larry Dupree raced 70 yards for a score, and fullback Jim O'Donnell plunged a couple of yards for the third.

The wins put SAE in the top slot in the Orange League.


Chi Phi leads the Blue League with one trophy in track. Phi Gamma Delta, last year's Blue League champion, is in second place with a win in water-basketball. Delta Upsilon is currently in third place.

Zeta Tau Alpha came from the losers bracket to defeat Alpha Delta Pi twice in Volleyball and take the championship and lead in the Orange League race.


Alpha Omicron Pi also made the trip from the losers bracket to the Volleyball championship by defeating Delta Gamma in two matches.
Both sorority leagues are currently engaged in softball tournaments which should be completed by the end of the trimester.

in athletics who have as their purpose the promotion of cooperation and fellowship among the various players. fo r U F 's The "F" Club operates the, "F" Club*
room on the fourth floor of the stadium for socials.

V a rs it The Club has various projects

the high school freshmen when they come to Gainesville, parties for lettermen L e tte rm e n and their dates, giving "F" blankets,
and many other things.
President of the "F" Club this year was Bruce Starling.

Athletic Council

The Athletic Council, which meets once a month, gives control of sports functions to the students. The group is composed of nine members, including six stuPHOWW~imdents. The body decides who is to receive recognition as an athlete by awarding letter sweaters, jackets, J placques, and awards. A complete schedule of athletic
events for students, faculty, and alumni is compiled. The group decides who shall represent the university at various games, meets, and functions. All athletic funcX tions, such as participation in a bowl game should be
approved by the members of the council since they control the distribution of student government athletic fees.
This year a new precedent was set by changing the order of awards. Jackets will now be given for second year participation, instead of three years of activity. The requirements for this award have been the same each year.
