Pittman said he understands the
need to raise state tuition to a level
similar to those of other Top 10

Because many Florida in-state

GLSU ready to be official UF group again

By SCOT WARING

The Gay and Lesbian Student Union met
Wednesday night and drafted a constitution
that would put the group back on campus.
GLSU, formerly UFLAGS (University of
Florida Lesbian and Gay Students) and the
Lesbian and Gay Student Union, lost its
Reitz Union office in 1982 and disbanded in
1985.
The GLSU plans to be back on campus

Apathy Party presidential candi candidate

Dean Cannon and Rory Weiner
were too busy exchanging verbal
blows.
Former student lobby director
Dean Cannon, Vision Party presi presidential
dential presidential candidate, and Graduate
Student Council President Rory
Weiner, the Voice Party presiden presidential
tial presidential candidate, took pot shots at
each other about issues including
tuition hikes, budget cuts and stu student
dent student involvement.
And while much of the debate
centered around the average UF
student, most of the 50 onlookers
were wearing Vision or Voice
party T-shirts.
Although all three candidates
said they would open SG to more
students, the mudslinging began
when candidates answered how
they would change the SG system.
Traditionally, SGs money and
power have been controlled by
students in fraternities and soror sororities.

U.S. Poet Laureate to come
to read his poetry to some

By JOANNA GOLTZMAN
Alligator Writer
Poet Laureate of the United States, Mark
Strand, is coming to UF as part of the English
departments Writers Festival.
Strand is scheduled to read some of his
poetry on Thursday, Feb. 21, at 8 p.m. in the
Reitz Union Rion Ballroom, which holds about
1,000 people.
Accent, Student Governments speakers bu bureau,
reau, bureau, is paying Strand about $2,000 to come
to UF, said Scott Thomas, Accent chairman.
The show is free and open to the public.
"This type of show is not the kind of thing
Accent usually does, Thomas said, This is
probably not of great interest to most students,
but we wanted peoplfto have the opportunity
to hear someone of great literary importance.
Because hes the Poet Laureate, hes offic officially

fice office in the Reitz Union, Hatton said. But
as for now, we are very happy about getting
back on campus. After all, you have to crawl
before you can walk.
Hatton said GI.SU was removed from
campus partly because the group had low
membership and one officer was not en enrolled
rolled enrolled as a full-time student. He said the
groups breakup was predominantly a result
of the AIDS scare during the mid-1980s.
Hatton said utter fear is the reason
GLSU is just now trying to regain student studentgroup

And Cannon, who is a fraternity
member and backed by Greek
support, was attacked on this issue
by the other two candidates.
Newsom said Cannon will cater
to the Greeks if elected.
Your pledge was to Phi Delt
(Phi Delta Theta), not the student
body, Newsom said.
Newsom said if he is elected, he
will destroy the system from the
inside.
I will be the biggest mouth
they have ever seen, Newsom
said. I will be a constant thorn in
their side.
Weiner also agreed the system
needs changes.
But Weiner said he would focus
his presidency on involving more
independent students and not
forcing the Greeks out.
Im out to get the students in involved,
volved, involved, he said. Enough is
enough. We have to have a univer university

Cannon also agreed the current

Washington, D.C., institution that accepts all
books published in the United States, said
William Logan, director of UFs creative writ writing
ing writing program.
The Poet Laureate serves as a symbol of
the importance of poetry, Logan said.
The United States has been appointing a
Poet Laureate for the past four years, Logan
said. Strand, who was appointed in 1990, is the
fourth and youngest poet to hold the position.
Past U.S. Poet Laureates include Robert
Penn Warren, Howard Nemerov and Richard
Wilbur.
This is the second time Strand has appeared
at UF, Logan said. He also was a guest at the
1982 Writers Festival.
The Writers Festival, an annual event since
,1970, will be held from Feb. 20 to Feb. 22.
Other writers scheduled to attend are fiction
writer Meredith Steinbach, poet Joseph Lang Langland
land Langland and fiction writer Ellen Douglas.
Strand also has written many fiction novels
including Sleeping with One Eye Open, The Late
Hour and his latest book, The Continuous Life.

In the past, members had second
thoughts about running for office positions
in the group because Student Government
law required the names to be made public,
Hatton said.
Former Lesbian and Gay Student Union
leader Bill Gallagher said things are differ different
ent different now because people are coming out of
the closet.
Homosexuals and bisexuals make up

headed into the 9os, UF leaders know that the school
needs to make its education, service and research avail available

UF professor keeps up with students, racing

By ANA COMPAIN
Alligator Writer
Jack Fancy is a jack-of-all-trades.
Besides teaching marketing to more than
2,000 UF students each semester, he advises
the Interfraternity Council, Kappa Sigma
fraternity, Accent and the Little Sister Task
Force.
He also chairs the Homecoming Advisory
Committee and helps recruit football players
for the Gators.
And, just for kicks, he joins others in
deserted parking lots to race cars.
Racing cars is a lot harder than it
sounds, said Faricy, who has bqen teaching

at Uh since 1966. "We go

Faricy, who describes him himself
self himself as a terrible ham, said
he takes time out from his
busy teaching schedule to
participate in student groups

because he enjoys keeping in contact with
students when hes out of the classroom.
Thats where the students are, Faricy
said. Im not there to act as a censor. The
groups are for the students to run.
The rapport Faricy has established with
his students is something rather uncommon
for a professor who teaches more than 2,000
students a year via television. Like many
large undergraduate classes, Fancys lec lectures

Faricy said he never enjoyed school and
even failed eighth grade. But he got his
first taste of teaching when he was a
lieutenant in the U.S. Army.
I taught really basic things, like how
not to stand behind a rifle during recojl,
he said. I loved it.
After serving in the Army, Faricy, then
28, became the father of two and went to
the University of Minnesota for his doc doctorate

And had it not been for his wifes tre tremendous

Faricys most recent dinner guest was

who spoke to about 1,000 people at UF last
week.
Everyone who knows Faricy had only
nice things to say.
UF marketing Chairman Alan Sawyer
said Faricy is easy to approach and that
students feel comfortable around him.
Jack spends more time with students
than anyone else I know. Sawyer said.
He probably spends an average of two or
three nights a week here on campus.
UF graduate student Eric Quinn was
introduced to Faricy one year ago. Now,
Quinn and Faricy have become friends.
Where theres smoke, theres fire,
Quinn said. And where theres fire,

Sermon on
the mound
The sound of the pipe organ draws you to
the tent bearing the sign Brother Matts Old
Tyme Gospel and Grand Slam Revival.
Inside, the revivalist, a tall, overweight man
in a white satin robe with Dodgers embla emblazoned
zoned emblazoned across the chest, leads the congregation
in Take Me Out to the Ball Game. The song
ends, the crowd quiets and the man begins to
speak.
MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, I come
to you today with a heavy heart for I have
seen something so heinous that it demands
our immediate attention and prayer.

Matt Adams
ANS FARE
"You see, I was at the ball park last week weekend
end weekend to see the beginning of our latest pil pilgrimage
grimage pilgrimage this college baseball season.
A young, strapping lad for the home team
stood on the mound. He went into his windup
one of the gloriest sights since the parting
of the Red Sea, or Nolan Ryans last no-hitter.
He let loose a mighty throw that could have,
nay, would have felled Goliath.
The batter an equally impressive
young man, cocked his bat, swung and then,
my brothers and sisters, then I heard the
sound.
PING!!
"It was an evil sound the voice of Satan
himself could not have rung so foul.
The ball soared away from fair territory,
perhaps knowing the evil to which it had
become a part. The batter stood in the box,
still holding the instrument of his sin.
For in his hands rested a silver-toned
aluminum serpent in this Eden.
You may not believe it to be so, my
brothers and sisters, but I saw it with my
own two eyes. The plague of the metal bat
has infiltrated this fair sport.
Think of it, my brothers and sisters.
Which is closer to the holy design of base baseball?
ball? baseball? The aluminum of which the metal bat
is made mined from deep in the Earth,
closer to the hellfires of eternal damnation?
Or the wooden bat, born of the branches of
trees that reach eer toward heaven above?
Which is better, I ask you, in the eyes of
God and Babe Ruth? To swing the wooden
bat of fortune, knowing full well that if it
collides wrong with the ball it may shatter?
Or to swing that smelted atrocity that turns
dinks into base hits?
Something must be done.
But the challenge to us is what we should
do as good, infield-fly fearing people? Should
we just ignore that silver- or gold-hued
demon and hope its influence fades like a
windswept fly?
Or should we find the man responsible
for this blasphemy, bathe him in pine tar and
coat him in used rosin? If he still will not
repent, we will hang him from the highest
peaks of the Kennesaw Mountains and pray
to Abner Doubleday for his soul.
Drastic actions? Perhaps. But let this be
our duty, our mission, our crusade to van vanquish
quish vanquish this aluminum blasphemy.
"And let us pray for the day when all of
Doubledays progeny will swing the way God
and Abner intended, not with a rod of refined
ore and rubber, but with a bat of pine and
fiber. Shoeless Joe Jackson would "demand
nothing less. t:
Neither should we.
Can I hear an Amen? AMEN!

UF can equal streak against Tide

By MATT FOGLESON
Alligator Staff Writer
Last month, the UF basketball team
was riding a three-game winning streak
before going to Alabama, where the Crim Crimson
son Crimson Tide brought the Gators back to
reality with a 72-64 defeat.
Saturday at 2 p.m. in the OConnell
Center, UF (9-11, 5-6 in the Southeastern
Conference) will have a chance to equal
that season-high winning streak against
you guessed it Alabama (14-6, 8-3).
The Gators have put together their
current two-game streak the hard way,
with overtime victories on the road
against SEC opponents Mississippi and
Auburn.
But the Tide promise to be a more
formidable opponent.
Alabama has won twice as many con conference
ference conference games as the Rebels and Tigers
combined and is tied with Vanderbilt for
first place in the SEC.
Theyve got an excellent program, UF
coach I.on Kruger said of Alabama. They
are tough inside and outside.
Senior center Melvin Cheatum and
freshman guard James Robinson lead the
Tide in scoring with 16.6 and 16 points a
game, respectively. Robinson, who aver averaged
aged averaged 40.7 a game as a high school senior,
has scored most of his points as a reserve
and wont start Saturday.
(Robinson) is a very good ball player.
Hes very quick, and he can shoot the ball
as well, UF freshman guard Craig Brown
said. Weve just got to go out and try to
stop Bama as a team and not concentrate
on one person.
Alabama also is second in the SEC in
rebounding with 41.1 a game. UF aver averages
ages averages 35.6 a game.
Alabamas an excellent rebounding
team, Kruger said. Weve had a lot of
trouble in that area. Its a big concern.
That concern could be magnified Sat Saturday
