" ° like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel, never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel, as the images unwind, like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind! More than ever, the university has met its challenge to become a meeting place of contrasting lifestyles and philosophies. Some students still engage in the old tradition of beer drinking and bar hopping while others have turned to grass smoking and mind blowing. Yet all are tied together by the pressure of school and the expectations of families and friends. Education. It ' s what brought some 20,000 students to the Florida campus this year. And this phenomena was eagerly parceled out through books, class lectures, testing and more books. But that was only half of the educational process that went on at the UF. The other half can summarily be called " student activities, " and it was found outside the classroom. No grades were given. Students were not required to attend. Credit hours were not awarded in most cases, and the participants didn ' t expect them. So, was " student activities " a worthwhile endeavor for those who got involved in them? Famed poet James Lowell would have thought so. To him, " The better part of every man ' s education is that which he gives himself. " Whether it consisted of a part in Romeo and Juliet or working in student govenment, reporting for the Alligator or working for the cause of any of a multitude of campus clubs or organizations, the same need was fulfilled. Learing was stimulated by firsthand experience outside the classroom. While some condemn the UF for it ' s massive size and lament that one is sure to become only another fish in a vast sea of student numbers, others can argue that the " massive " university offers activities the small college often only dreams of. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, " We are students of words: we are shut up in schools and colleges and recitation-rooms for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bag of wind, a memory of words, and do not know a thing. " On the following pages you ' ll see some of the constructive experiences some UF students got involved in- outside the classroom.

O ' Connell at news conference ... approves plan submitted by Ad Hoc Committee on Publications year in review feature STUDENT PUBLICATIONS The top news story of the year at The University of Florida, ironically enough, concerned the student presses themselves. The 65 year-old student newspaper, THE FLORIDA ALLIGATOR, became an independent corporation beginning February. The yearbook, THE SEMINOLE, another old established student publication at UF, became a student organization under student government. he FLORIDA QUARTERLY was denied funding for the ' 72— ' 73 year by the Board of Student Publications which was eliminated itself. There was talk that the Quarterly would be housed by the English Department; however it continued publication through the financial aid of the Alumni Association. And finally, after a long history of its own, student publications itself was faded decision By WENDY SNYDER Alligator Staff Writer will support and encourage its success. " the conference editor-in-Chief Randy Bellows By WENDY SNYDER As was the trend nationally this year, journalists at UF found themselves making headlines, and the issues of freedom of the press and the necessity for a strong newspaper erupted into contro- versy on the UF campus. The Florida Alligator, for 65 years a university publication, found itself the butt of criticism and the object of many divergent proposals until finally becoming an independent corporation in February. Problems for the newspaper began in May ' 72 when then Editor-in-Chief Ron Sachs a list of abortion referral agencies challenging an archaic Florida statute. UF President Stephen C. O ' Connell found in the " untenable position " of being official publisher of the newspaper without opportunity of reviewing copy. The Alligator had printed the list illegally and O ' Connell was officialy responsible. The law was subsequently declared unconstiutional but the president was determined to relieve himself of the burden of publisher. Following the Sachs incident, O ' Connell requested an opinion from Attorney General Robert Shevin concerning his as president. Shevin confirmed that presidents were indeed legal publishers of campus However, Shevin continued, they did not the right to exercise prior restraint of publication. O ' Connell pursued the matter. In August he requested the Board of Student Publications, (BSP), then the governing board for university publications The Alligator and The Seminole, to submit a list of alternative proposals concerning the newspaper. Three proposals were dis- cussed: • Establishment of the paper as a legal entity on or off campus. • Publication of the paper by the College of Journalism and Commu nications. • Engagement of a responsible to the to act as publisher of the paper. In submitting the proposals, however, the BSP voted 3-2 not to recommend adoption of any of the proposals, preferring instead to recommend retaining the existing structure for a period of six months to further study the matter. O ' Connell, though, preferred not to wait those six months. Elaborating on the third O ' Connell submitted a plan to the Board of Regents which entailed hiring a editor-publisher to the president to govern the newspaper. The editor-publisher would have the authority to hire and dismiss student editors and staff, control The Alligator ' s content and restrict editorial policy. The Alligator, under the plan, could not editorially comment on political issues or endorse political candidates. The regents rejected this in September. O ' Connell then drew up a second proposal, submitted to the regents in early October. It was designed to make The Alligator " free of university authority and independent of reliance on public funds " by January. The plan called for an end to activity fee support of The In addition, a restructured 11-member publications board would serve as publisher of the newspaper during the transitional period before the paper was to become independent. The proposal was adopted and the members of the board were named. However, a clause in the proposal calling for prior and review on the part of the board created conflict in the minds of some members, and whether or not all would agree to serve became a confusing issue for some time. Meanwhile, a student refe- rendum question concerning The Alligator was included on the fall Student Senate elections ballot. By a vote of 3372-459, the students endorsed the retaining of The Alligator on campus, by student activity fee money. O ' Connell ' s next step was to appoint the Ad Hoc Committee on Student Publications — also referred to as the Cunningham Commission denoting its chairman, Dr. Hugh Cunningham of the College of Journalism — to study The Alligator and a plan for independence by Jan. 1. The committee studied three major proposals: one submitted by Ed Barber, then acting director of student publications, another by Kay B. Meurlott, an assistant professor in the department of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, and the third from Editor-in-Chief Randy Bellows. Both Barber ' s and Bellows ' plan called for a nonprofit to operate the paper. A difference in the two plans consisted in the number of representatives from the student-run editorial office (news room) to be included on the board of directors. Meurlott ' s plan called for either a profit-oriented or organization, depending on " which arrangement offers the best long-term benefit to the continued operation in the judgement of the principals of the corporation. " The plan finally approved by the committee and submitted to O ' Connell in early January was a modification of the Barber plan. Under the plan, approved by O ' Connell Jan. 9, The Alligator would become an independent, nonprofit corporation Feb. 1. It would be governed by a seven-member board of directors consisting of the editor-in-chief (Randy Bellows), the managing editor (Tim Condon), the business manager (Mike Blocker), the advertising manager (Ed Cornwell), " a graduate with journalistic (Kevin Davey), and " a person from outside the engaged in full-time journalistic pursuits " Sharkey). The position of general also a member of the board of directors, was given to Tony Kendzior, previously the manager of the Campus Shop and Bookstore. The plan became official and the board of directors met times to draw up its charter and incorporate its own bylaws. Protest, however, was raised by Student Government and Editor Bellows calling for a financial foundation. A rally was staged " in support of The Alligator " during which columnist Frank Mankiewicz — in a taped speech — drew a national parallel The Alligator and other newspapers fighting for survival. As of this Jan. 22 deadline, though, it appeared that UF ' s newspaper would begin a new history Feb. 1 as The Florida Alligator. seminoIe becomes student organization By WENDY SNYDER Whether or not you would ever read this was once doubtful. Whether or not the ' 73 Seminole would be published at alI remained an unanswered question from August to October. One day the word was " go, " the next, " scrap it. " It was a question of money always the hindering factor. The problem stemmed from a decision made during the summer by UF President Stephen C. O ' Connell to reallocate student activity funds, decreasing the Student Publications budget by 34 cents per student per quarter — a total loss of $28,000. The money was transferred to the Athletic Association and the Infirmary. As a result of this decrease in funds, the Board of Student Publications (BSP) voted in August to eliminate both The Seminole and The Quarterly, the UF literary magazine. An additional factor in the negative vote cited by the board was the apparent lack of student support for the two publications. " I can ' t see going $17,000 in debt to support publications no one seems to be interested in, " student board member Fred Vollrath said at the time. Yearbooks sold the previous year totalled 1,155. However, the Seminole staff members had enthusiastic plans for the new book and firmly believed enough student support could be rallied to justify publication. Seminole Editor Marianne Macina appealed the BSP ' s decision to then Acting Vice President for Student Affairs John Kinzer. Kinzer appeared before the BSP Aug. 25, requesting the board to reconsider its fatal recommendation. The board complied. In a complete reversal of its previous decision regarding The Seminole, the BSP approved an $11,000 deficit for the book. The consensus of the board was if The Seminole were to be published at continued... all it should be funded in a manner which would insure a top-notch publication. Kinzer, though, taken aback at the board ' s generous deficit allowance, delayed approval of the BSP ' s action. Thus, during the break between summer and fall quarter, the status of The Seminole remained in limbo. Kinzer and Macina met several times early fall quarter to negotiate a compromise budget for the yearbook. Kinzer indicated he would approve publication of the book given two prerequisites: one, that student support above last year ' s could be proven through the sale of approximately 2,0 0 0 $1 downpayment " commitment " purchases; and two, that economizing cutbacks could be made in the budget to decrease the deficit spending. Macina reported K i n zer ' s suggestions at a BSP meeting Oct. 3. Al that time, 500 sales had been transacted. On Oct. 20 the BSP reiterated its approval of an $11,000 deficit for The Seminole and recommended that the Student Publications overall budget be utilized to absorb part of the Seminole deficit. The Student Publications budget is made up largely of advertising revenue — 61 per cent. Student activity fees comprise the next largest portion — over 30 per cent. Yearbook and Quarterly sales plus miscellaneous revenue complete the total source of income. Kinzer reacted quickly to the idea of subsidy, and, in a simple memo dated Oct. 23, all the controversy, uncertainty and frustration of the previous months were brought to an end. In the memo, Kinzer approved a compromise deficit of $9,400 " I can see the possibility of making a successful venture out of this (year ' s Seminole) with student support from both the fees and in sales, " Kinzer said. The word was definitely " go. " Meanwhile, the Seminole staff had been working continuously despite the uncertain outcome. With renewed incentive following Kinzer ' s go-ahead, they began the serious work of collecting pictures, assembling copy and designing lay-outs. By mid-November sales had surpassed the 1,500 mark. And here it is ... finally. The consumation of a year ' s hard-spent effort, brought to you " with a little help from our friends. " By PAULA CHRISTY It was a year of growing and growing, a year of becoming for the Florida Quarterly. It was a year of changes in finances, operations and content. In July 1972, the Board of Student Publications severed relationships with the Florida Quarterly, cutting it free to float on its own with no recommendations of where the boat was to come from. The Quarterly did float, supported by life preservers thrown by the UF Alumni Association which was to help out until the magazine could get its feet on the ground. A possible berth for the Quarterly is the English Department which has given it support during this unsettled year. The BSP cut the Quarterly loose because UF President Stephen C. O ' Connell chopped money Student Publications received each quarter from $1.64 to $1.30 per student, a budget cut of approximately $23,460 over three quarters. Deciding Student Publications could not support a loss this great, the board cut the Quarterly off, hoping someone would step in to keep the literary magazine alive. So the groping began and out of the dark came the Alumni Association. With this single candle lighting the way, the Quarterly started searching for a home. In the midst of uncertainty, the Florida Quarterly was not stifled or even slowed down. It continued to grow and kept its position as one of the leading student-produced literary magazines in the country. The six-year-old magazine of the arts has received national awards for excellence and publishes works contributed by poets and artists around the country. It has been used as a textbook at Cornell University. The magazine expanded its sections of poetry, graphics, photography and prose, including the works of a few regular contributors and many new ones. The Quarterly has a few regulars they like to hang onto because of the popularity of their work. According to Editor Marie Speed, many of the poems were by unpublished poets who have not published a book of their own. Because the market for poetry is so limited, poets may find it difficult to publish, so turn to literary magazines as they are good exposure for their work. Primarily prose and poetry, the non-profit magazine is published three times a year and is sold on campus and in bookstores around town. The Quarterly readership grew luxuriously in the fertile environment of the campus, nourished by the presence of visiting poets John Ciardi and John Frederick Nims who were each guest professors for a quarter. Faculty involvement also increased. Striving to reach a larger audience, the Quarterly included experimental works, by several authors and ' artists. Most of what went into the literary magazine was art drawn from sources as diverse as universities and prisons. One section planned featured prison poetry. Everything was selected by a quarterly continued... staff of five readers and the editors who exchanged and discussed the material. With a reputation for being one of the liveliest literary magazines in the United States, the Florida Quarterly was conservative and cautious only in demanding high quality work. With this goal of quality in mind, the Quarterly began writing to contributors who sent in good work that didn ' t quite meet their standards, sending the contributors critical analyses of their work and asking them to resubmit it for possible reconsideration. The magazine received fantastic feedback. From its beginnings six years ago as an experiment proposed by students and chartered by Student Government, to its inclusion as part of Student Publications and finally to its new-found independence, the Florida Quarterly has worked toward excellence and increasing readership. During the year, the literary magazine grew, changed and matured. It was truly a year of becoming. It ' s very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes provide them with a wonderfully complete language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration of their being, for every infinitesimal variation in their feeling tone.

Of course it was a very minimal amount and in small dimensions that were scoffed at by Northerners as pure " dandruff " but none the less it was pure and white ... snow. Come Saturday morning sorority girls dressed in black after a night of initiation ceremonies frolicked in their front yards singing " Frosty, the Snowman " and other students caught up by the mood, packed their bags and cars and headed for the big drifts up as far north as Macon, Georgia. For some of us, it was impossible to stay at home. We had never seen snow or it had been a very long time since we had. At 2 a.m. we found ourselves sipping hot chocolate in Valdosta, staring out the window at the snow piled up on the cars parked across the street. For the real pros, it either meant staying in bed late or fastening sleds, toboggans and what have you on cars and heading to the Carolinas. For our photographers it was a " winter wonderland " for pictures. And for the people in Northern Florida it meant more money due to snowbound travelers. At one gas station in Live Oak, the attendant had made his own snowman who stood defiantly atop the gas pump. We asked him what he though about the snow. He replied, " Great, we haven ' t had this much business in 20 years. " And for some Gainesville residents it made them stop and wonder if they shouldn ' t have settled farther south. After the excitement had melted down and the heard about the real problems that snow could cause there was a lot of agreement " that snow is a show but aint it great to be in the Sunshine State!

TIRED OF BACKTALK HERE FOR at 0 year in review feature WOMEN ' S RIGHTS Investigations into women ' s rights became one of the big news events of the year at The University of Florida. Status of Women Committees were formed both by the administration and by student government. Research into the matter was conducted both by the student newspaper, THE FLORIDA ALLIGATOR and the UF leadership organization, SAVANT. It also was the first year in which Florida Blue Key, men ' s leadership organization on campus, opened the doors to its annual banquet and welcomed women. Figures, figures, figures .. .

It is the combined effort of three students: Carol Corner, Judy Koons and Marianne Macina.) The U.S. Supreme Court Justice peered over his bifocals and cleared his throat. " The ruling of the lower court is affirmed, " he said. Myra Bradwell turned away. She had just been denied admittance to the Illinois State Bar solely on the basis of her sex. In reaching this decision the court noted that " the natural and delicate timidity and delicacy which belong to the female sex evidently unfit it for many of the occupations of civil life. " That was in 1873. Who would believe that through the years, our court would also say with conviction that women are exempt from jury duty because they prefer " cleaning and cooking, rearing of children and television soap operas, bridge and canasta, the beauty parlor and shopping " along with the idea that " the woman is still regarded as the center of home and family life. " Hani Van De Riet turned away from her class to write " hebephrenic schizophrenia " on the blackboard while proceeding with her definition. She is one of the few women Associate Professors at the University of Florida in 1972. Although acclaimed highly in her field by students and having taught here for ten years, she did not receive a promotion until just recently. In revealing the problems she has encountered as a female faculty member, she related both personal and societal effects. She and her ex-husband have almost identical schooling in clinical psychology — he advanced and she did not. Her average salary has always been $3,000 less than his despite her extremely heavy teaching load. There has never been any praise offered to her by the other faculty members. " We have been told that we are second rate for " We don ' t know where to point blame; I hese are complex questions you can ' t hang on society... how do you stop it? " or have you so long that we begin to believe it, " she said. " I have learned to be adequate but not too good as to be a threat. " The problem hangs on the fact that " the inborn differences between male and female have been seized and overemphasized. We have been taught to be submissive, " she added. The recent SAVANT study included in this issue revealed that of the 2,070 faculty members on campus, 247 or 11.9 per cent are women. Betty Cosby Stevens sat back after her long day and let out a complacent sigh. She ' s been there and back. The former Dean of Women at the University of Florida is not getting a big kick out of teaching logic to " a bright bunch, challenging and demanding. " Besides her duties as an associate professor she is also a University College advisor. Her complacent air vanished as she began to discuss the status of women on this campus. " It is a vicious circle, " she said. " Men tend to perpetuate themselves. " Dr. Stevens said she believes that there really is no benchmark, " we don ' t know where to point the blame; these are complex questions that you can ' t hang on society in general. How do you stop it? " However, she did give a few approaches: • To encourage expectations early to go to graduate school. • To counteract the socialization of females which tells them that if they go to graduate school and get a PhD, they can ' t find a good man. She admits that the possibility of not finding a good man might be a hazard one takes in continuing one ' s education. But then there are many risks in life. The SAVANT study also revealed that of the 1,823 male faculty members, 906 or 50.3 per cent continued... -- Betty Cosby Stevens the intangibles human degradation Registry where there are plenty of qualified women listed. Other than these two specific areas on this campus, she characterizes it as an intangible, attitudinal problem. However, she is optimistic in that attention to the past and present status of women is not just a passing fancy, but that the " movement is here to stay. " women continued... are tenured. Only 86 or 34.8 per cent of the 247 female faculty members are tenured. Irene Thompson peered out over her bifocals and gave a throaty chuckle. The assistant professor of English expressed her belief that the general attitude of the administration and faculty is based on the assumption that any woman involved in women ' s inequities is uptight about sex and homosexuality and is a women ' s libber complete with alI the bad connotations that go along with it. As chairman of the President ' s Committee on the Status of Women, she is frustrated by her " inability to convince the top administration that there is discrimination on alI levels. " Another problem, she said, is that the faculty members in power have made no effort to recruit women. Instead they use the ' old boy system ' where one professor asks another for someone qualified rather than going through the College Of the 116 departments, schools, divisions and colleges that comprise the SAVANT study, 45 departments do not have any female faculty members at all. Myra Bradwell shook her head thinking, hoping it was alI an evil dream. 1873 was long ago. Yet even then and now the American dream and success exists in name only because of the specter of discrimination. Wake up America. Wake up University of Florida. You ' ve been sleeping through a catastrophe of human degradation. For the first time in its history, Florida Blue Key, which has been exclusively a male ' s leadership honorary for years, invited women to attend its annual Homecoming Smoker and Banquet. Although the Blue Key Brothers voted not to allow women to join the honorary last falI they did compromise by opening the banquet doors. he event occured just one year after a group of female students and faculty led by Betty Freidan marched on the ' 71 Banquet. Freidan had been invited to the UF by the members of Mortar Board and Savant to speak at their annual banquet. The protestors charged Blue Key with being a sexist organization. One year later, last fall, the women ' s leadership honorary, Savant, went one step further by tapping men into the organization. faces of blacks Muckraker Jack Anderson May you live in the most interesting of times ...

Pompous and confident Florida State University Seminole fans surround you protected within their freshly painted CampbelI Stadium. The annual footbalI rivalry between the FSU and University of Florida teams is abo ut to begin. The mood of the Seminole fans is bolstered by their 4-0 winning streak and national rankings of eleventh from UPI and thirteenth from AP. So far 1972 has been a good year for quarterback and Heisman trophy hopeful Gary Huff. And it looks good for the Seminoles. But a combination of physical expertise and psychology is about to shatter their hopes in a 42-13 defeat at the hands of those impossible Gators from Gainesville. It wilI go down as Florida ' s 12th victory against two losses in the annual contest. The Seminoles have lost the last five games despite being heavily favored in the last two. Under the bright Saturday afternoon sun, 48,758 fans watch as the Seminoles seem to repeat 1971 ' s self-destructive performance. They give up the balI 13 times interceptions and fumbles. Florida begins at once to take advantage of the Seminole ' s offensive weaknesses with a hard hitting defense led by David Poff and Ralph Ortega. As Florida takes the offensive, Doug Dickey ' s Gators march alI over the field with quarterback David Bowden, tailback Nat Moore, fulIback Vince Kendric, and wide receiver Willie Jackson leading the way. FSU ' s lary Huff manages to complete 27 passes for a total of 335 yards, but Florida stilI leades 14-7 at halftime. F loirda State becomes its own enemy by giving way its favorable field position through fumbles and then inticing the Gators down the field with more fumbles. FSU, more panic stricken, is about to make stilI more errors. Two recoveries lead directly to Gator touchdowns as do two interceptions parallel to last year ' s game when the Gators scored following one reception and four recoveries for a 17-15 upset. While the outcome of this year ' s game shocked many FSU fans and pleasantly surprised the Gators, Coach Dickey didn ' t credit Florida ' s win to luck. " When you score that many points against that kind of defense you ' ve got to be doing a super job, " Dickey said. Dickey ' s cheerful dissertation was interpreted by University of Florida President Stephen C. O ' ConnelI and Governor Reubin Askew who made some errors of their own by going to the FSU dressing room after that game announcing that they wanted " to come and see those Gators. " The mood in the FSU locker room was not so jubilant. Asked if he was aware of the record breaking performance for FSU total offense and passing, Gary Huff said, " it doesn ' t make a damn bit of difference to me. " M ore concerned about his team ' s loss he said, " Nine out of ten times, or maybe every time, the team that makes the fewest mistakes wilI win. " Whether or not fumbles and interceptions were the cause of Florida ' s victory and FSU ' s loss is impossible to judge. But in this very emotional intrastate game, the reason for victory seems obscure next to the status which is accorded the victor. The victory is not just a physical one. It is also an emotional one. However, the victory whehter emotional, physical or both, belongs to the Gators. 42-13, the score wilI not be forgotten. florida OFFeNSe SF Joel Parker Willie Jackson OT Paul Parker Gary Padgett Og Burton Lawless Mike Williams c Jim Kynes Robbie Moore SO Mike Stanfield Ron lannerelli ST Kris Anderson Bob Hackney Hank Foldberg Scott Nugent qb David Bowden Chan Gailey FL Hollis Boardman Lee McGriff Tb Nat Moore Andy Summers fb Vince Kendrick Carey Geiger PAT-FG: SPECIALISTS PUNTING: 12 Aust KICKOFF: 9 Morrison 18 J.

MILLER " Bartletts Bunch " of basketballers were transformed into the " Comeback Kids " during the 1972-73 season, as the Gator cagers thrilled fans at Alligator Alley with repeated second-half rallies featuring the tenacious defensive play that had characterized the football squad. Despite a so-so 11-15 record, the Gators upset highly ranked Virginia Tech and Vanderbilt at the Alley and barely missed a homestanding victory over Tennessee, then leading the SEC. Captain Tony Miller, SEC leading scorer in 1972, led the ' 73 UF club in scoring for the third straight year, and sophomore Chip Williams was the top newcomer, leading the team in rebounding and finishing second in scoring. Optimism for future Gator basketball teams was generated by the performances of freshmen Gene Shy, Bill Moody, Bob Smyth, Mike Lederman, and Dean White.The latter split playing team between the varsity and the junior varsity, where he combined with Curt Shellabarger, Don Close, and Joe Repass to bring the conference JV title to Gatorland. Near the end of the season head coach Tommy Bartlett announced his resignation, effective after the March 3 finale, after seven seasons at UF, during which time the Bunch won 96 games and lost 85, with the 1969 squad participating in the National Invitational Tournament for the first time in UF history. A new era in Gator basketball was begun on March 5 with the selection of John Lotz, formerly assistant coach at North Carolina, as the 13th head coach in the annals of Florida basketball.

" Battered, dusty station began pouring into Gainesville as early as Tuesday with smudgy out of state tags, 18-foot cardboard tubes lashed to the roofs, and duffle bags piled up in the back. The religous local early morning joggers were greated to a variety emblems on tee-shirts marked " Yale " " TuLane, " " Duke " , and " Tennessee. " And the games were as spontaneous and colorful as ever with participants from 10 to 65 years old often competing side by side. Anybody can be in the Florida Relays and that makes them all the better. The traditionally faceless Florida track vaulted into a new era in March of 1973. As the Florida Relays began, the track area was given a personalized name of its own. After decades of being just " the track " it was named Percy M. Beard Field in honor of the former track coach. seminole art james cook By PAUL SHEA The first fists went up in Mexico City, 1968. John Carlos and Tommie Smith, unable to stand tall for a flag and a song, expressed their feelings on the Olympic victory stand. Shock wave hits. Not understanding, white Americans lash out at two of their greatest athletes. " Throw them out. " Honkies. America wins again though, and the Carlos-Smith escapade fades into the shine of their medals. Build up Germany in ' 72. The order is out. Spread the word of the burden hanging over military Germany since the big war. Bring up Hitler ' s name as much as possible. Munich must look like a dying puppy being saved by the 20th Olympiad. Political games ... can do no harm. In the United States, the folks have forgot Carlos and Smith. Mark Spitz is out to save his name. Jim Ryun, coming back, again, looks as if he can pull it off. New heroes arise in capped, Dave Wottle and distance runner Steve Prefontaine. The Germans are ready. Bring on the Games. Just a slight problem arises in the pre-Olympic excitment. Blacks from Africa and America threaten to boycott the whole show. We can ' t have that cries the International Olympic Committee. Throw Rhodesia out. Demonstrators, armed with iron pipes, skirmish with police for three days outside the Palace of Justice. No one knows yet what organization they commentary represented. The Games must go on. Suddenly, Tuesday strikes. Arabs, termed " terrorists " by the first reports, crept through the loose Olympic security, killed two Israel Olympic team members and held the games at their feet for 20 horrifying hours. Twelve hours after the Arabs had taken over the Jewish building in the village, the Games were halted. Postponed? Cancelled? That was another in a growing list of problems. What would happen to the Games? It ended in death at a German airport. Or it began. Nineteen Olympic games had gone by with nary a hitch. But now , the escape of sport seemed gone. The insane goals of jumping over a bar, running 100 yards faster than anyone else, throwing the hammer, balancing on a beam, sprinting a mile were all thrown into the insane world. They don ' t fit in with death ... They don ' t belong. Governments seem strange in settings of sport. Athletes who train years in the mountains of Keyna have no need for guns. US athletes, groomed and courted by the citizens and government could not understand. After fanatically training all your life, being brought to your knees by such violence is shattering. In the violence of Olympic sport, no one is killed, no one is seriously hurt. The pain of losing dies quickly for most. After the massacre, problems that would have caused a furor by themselves were magnified because of the bloody Tuesday. After finishing 1-2 in the 400 meters, Wayne Collett and Vince Matthews swung their medals around their fingers and gossiped on the victory stand while the band played The Star-Spangled runners out of any further competition. The downfall of the overall Olympics overshadowed the US failures and without America, the Olympics are doomed. Two sprinters never ran. Mixup in schedules. The National Anthem isn ' t what it used to be. Disgusting and disrespectable according to the IOC. We were whipped in track. Jim Ryun falls. Russia ousts the kings of basketball. Nonsensical Avery Brundage made his last plea that the games must go on. He forgot to tell us how. Thinking of mountains and trees, fearing another absurd slaughter, Denver voters said no to the ' 76 Olympic Games. The National Collegiate Athletic Association withdrawn from the US Olympic Committee, calling for a reorganization and Congressional action. The 18-member NCAA Council made the decision under advice from the International Relations Committee. The NCAA will not send representatives or offer any money to the Olympics. They recommend that the 700 colleges under NCAA jurisdiction also not help. Where does that leave the Olympics? Out in the cold by themselves. The IOC has no place to turn but out into the hard reality of governments and money hunting. fantasy land of sport? Only more trouble. What the Olympics must do is restructure from within, without leaving their own insane world. The NCAA must help, for they are apart of the myth. Athletes must help. Good athletes must compete in future games simply for the sport. If they don ' t want to stand at attention while their countries national anthem blares, they must not be forced to do so. Spirit must take over. The world of sport is one of the few places left to hide. The games can go either way. They can die in the rubble of Germany as a side show wanted by no one, or one can realize that Arabs and Israelis lived together in the Olympic Village at peace as did Russians and Americans before the Arab attack. The fate of the games lies in the hands of athletes like Jim Ryun and Vince Matthews. Mark Spitz and Olga Korbut. Dan Gable an d John Akii-Bua. Lasse Viren and Kip Keino. Along with others, they must come back to save the games. The Olympics can bring such joy. Now there is only sadness. Banner. They don ' t belong.

They threw the world to take back into the 1972 doris sussman editor greeks greeks greeks the times they are a ' changing ---bob dylan feature article by Wendy Snyder Is the Greek system dying? That ' s been the proverbial question posed by yearbooks across the country for almost a decade now; each time the answer seems to be " no " . The answer really depends on which aspect of Greek life one is referring to: membership or status. The number of Greeks on the UF campus has actually increased whereas the status surrounding fraternities and sororities and the pressure to join have dropped significantly. UF ' s Inter-Fraternity Council reports a five per cent increase in fraternity membership over last year. Panhellenic, the council of sororities, shows a similar slight increase. Most of the houses, though, said their membership was fairly stable — the turnover of graduating seniors and others the house versus the size of the pledge class account for small fluctuations. The turnover in sororities is quite high. Some become disillusioned with the house, others leave for apartments, some get married or leave to intern (education majors, for examples). But the vacancies are soon filled with initiated pledges. Most of the houses are quick to assure you that they ' re not facing any financial difficulty. Many, though, have been forced to raise their food charge due to the costs of meat, etc. Others increase their rent whenever dorm rents go up (usually the rent The turnover in sororities especially is quite high. Some become disillusioned with the house, others leave for apartments, some get married or leave to intern. Greek? Friends Good food, good friends and good times are the most commonly cited advantages to Greek life. remains cheaper than the dorms). Many houses rely on alumni to help out in a financial strain, others settle it among the active members themselves. Most joining a fraternity or sorority are willing to preserve the house no matter what the cost. What type of person is attracted to Greek life? " No special type of person, we have very diverse members. " This is the most common answer given by fraternities and sororities. And there is indeed a large di version of opinions among Greeks as to what a Greek is, how Greeks view independents and vice versa. be answer " I think a girl who ' s been active in high school is attracted to a sorority, " said one sorority member. " Someone who ' s used to a lot of friends. " " Someone who was shy in high school, who maybe didn ' t have a lot of friends and who wants the security of a lot of people, " said another. " Outgoing people who want to get involved are attracted to joining a house, " said a third. " There ' s always someone to talk to, people to rely on. " One girl, said a member of her sorority had been faced with the problem of getting an abortion. " We just called a chapter meeting and raised enough money to send her to New York. " Sisterhood. That ' s the password among sororities. For fraternities it ' s " the brother " — friendship. " I wanted to make a lot of friends, " said one frat man, " and I have. " " You get to associate with a lot of different kinds of people, " said another. " That ' s what I like about a fraternity. " Again, the diversity of members is stressed. " You learn a lot about people in a fraternity, " said a third. " And you learn to adjust to difference of ' Outgoing people who want to get involved are attracted to joining a house. ' status report opinions. There are cliques and factions within the house, just as there are anywhere; but when you come right down to it, we ' re pretty together. " The problem of cliques is fairly often among both fraternities and sororities, but is not considered too serious. " You just have to learn to get along with people. " Good friends, good food, and good times are the most commonly cited advantages to Greek life. How do Greeks and view each other? Again there is a diversion of opinion. Some Greeks maintain there is still status attached to fraternities and sororities, others say they are looked down upon by Some express a preference for dating other Greeks, others say they prefer independents girls have a lot of obligations to the house, and they don ' t have 24-hour others still say it doesn ' t make a difference. Independents tend to discount any status being attached to Greeks. The prevailing attitude among both seems to be that people do what they want and that ' s that. To go Greek or not — it ' s just one more decision to be made at a university. The prevailing attitude among both Greeks and independents seems to he that people do what they want and that ' s that. people do what they want greek gobblers and goblins The winner managed 72 scoops in this Delta Phi Epsilon " ice cream social.

FPIRG Inspired by a visit to UF by consumer advocate Ralph Nader, approximately 150 students worked to gather signatures to form the Florida Public Interest Research Group. The students, to show genuine interest and desire to organize, need to collect signatures from 51% of the student body, present this petition and their organization plans to the administration, Board of Regents, and the student body as a referendum. If approved, the consumer interest group will join twelve other PIRGS in the country. The groups strive to involve students in the economic system by encouraging them to do research on projects of consumer interest. They also will hire professionals to take problems and work on them full-time. Above: FPIRG coordinator David Uhlfelder (right) collects signature from fellow student. environmental action group Defending the tenure case of George Cornwell, establishing an environmental library and promoting the Environmentally Lands Bond Issue were some of the activities of UF ' s Environmental Action Group (EAG). Also sponsored by EAG were Earth Week, a mass transit plan for campus, and the aluminum recycling project. Pointing out that there has to be a change in society to protect the environment, EAG Director Ed Berger said the purpose of EAG is to make the public aware of the pollution and energy crisis. " We can no longer tolerate indiscriminate waste, personal selfishness and power consumption. We have to change public attitude to save our resources, " Berger said. EAG has lobbied against strip mining, the Trident submarine base in Merritt Island, and the Highway Trust Fund. Locally, EAG has worked to preserve the Devil ' s Millhopper, supported the Flood Prone Ordinance and promoted the expansion of bicycle paths.

Now that 18-year-olds have the right to vote and can register in the counties where they attend college, students are on the threshhold of playing a dominant force in their college communities. And within the campus bounds is the right for all students to elect their leaders, a tradition upheld throughout the years, though not always appreciated. tallies show that student concern has turned to the conservation rather than the exploitation of the world around us. Being the new leaders, the responsibility lies with them to save the world from itself. politics and ecology politics and ecology politics and ecology marina blomberg editor Interviews By DORIS SUSSMAN " Originally they had formed ' Students Against McGovern ' on campus, but I knew we had to push the positive aspects of Nixon ' s campaign instead, " Nixon supporter Tom Tedcastle says. After helping Dan Lobeck organize a UF Nixon campaign chapter, the 20-year-old junior took on the job of county youth co-ordinator, a position set up in several key counties. " I arranged schedules for all the workers, designated jobs, kept in touch with the national organization generally overseeing, " Tom explains. He feels they were effective in reaching students on campus and in dormitories but adds, " We had some problems getting the kind of publicity we wanted. The Alligator gave us some but the Gainesville Sun seemed to ignore there was a Nixon campaign going on. " Despite the competition for publicity, the two camps sometimes made strange alliances. " We had a table set up at the Union right across from the McGovern table, " Tom says. " We would urge people to go over there and the McGovern people would sent them to us. That ' s the only way voters can hear both sides election 337 choose sides " My idea of campaigning is to talk to people who are undecided and persuade them, " McGovern campaigner Roslyn Tartaglione says. The 18-year-old freshman is a political science major who picked her candidate by examining congressional voting records. " I don ' t trust political speeches, " she explains. Part of a community-involved family (her father is vice-president of the Gainesville Sun) Roslyn worked as " kind of a freelancer " through the Gainesville city McGovern headquarters. She is critical of the campus campaign group which, Roslyn says, " just set up tables and waited for people to come to them. Of course they were on the defensive — but when I ' m on the defensive, I fight back. The city organization she worked with included professors, their wives and children as young as ten years old. They distributed literature through the mail, in neighborhoods and at shopping centers. " I was surprised it was as enthusiastic it was, " Roslyn comments. " We really thought we were getting somewhere. " Everybody who would argue with us, we argued with intelligently, of course. There were at least two or three people that I swayed. That ' s such a good feeling " r an a chance to work for them By CARLOS J. LICEA Usual political apathy was not present at the UF campus during the 1972-73 academic year. 7 he reason, fall of 1972 witnessed the election of a president. For some students, this was a year when they really found out what politics were all about. Rick Sisser, president of the UF Young Democrats represents one side of the political spectrum on campus. He found out politics are more than just a game. " You can ' t get involved in politics without being involved 24 hours a day. The roughest thing about politics is to keep your idealism totally committed to politics, " he said. " Students will always play a role in traditional politics because he will do anything to be involved in politics. " The reason for this involvement, he added, was that politics was a " glamorous field. There is only a thin line dividing politics from entertainment. " Sisser noted idealism is a strong factor in student political involvement, but in the real political world " you must be practical, " he warned. " You can ' t be purely idealistic or you won ' t survive, you have to follow the law of the survival of the fittest. " Sisser pointed out that while there were 85 members on the campus Young Democrats organization, those really committed to working were " about 10 or 12. " Those members, however, really worked for the election of demo cratic candidates. They were joined by another student group, Students for McGovern, who brought the reality of politics to the campus. " Giving vote to 18-year-olds made politicians more aware of youth, at least in rhetoric more responsive to youth. It provided an impetus for youth to get more involved in politics, " he said. Representing the other side is Dan Lobeck. Lobeck is a UF law student and he headed Students for Nixon on campus. Lobeck also expressed admiration for the students who worked with him. " We had about 100 names in our roll, and about 30 of those worked at any one time. The work they did was seen during the straw ballot for president during the fall quarter student government elections where Nixon got a sizable share of the vote, " he said, pointing out the incumbent president outpolled the Democratic nominee among campus residents. " Many people were disillusioned with the McGovern defeat because they were led to believe you could be extremely idealistic and moral in politics; but they learned through a bitter defeat that it is nice to be idealistic, moral and right, but that does not win elections, " Sisser said about the elections. While his group worked hard enough to give McGovern a victory on the campus straw vote by a small margin, Nixon took not only the country, but also Alachua County where UF is located. Sisser complains that while student involvement in politics increased prior to the November Presidential election, " since the election it has declined. " waiting and deciding McGovern concedes OF THE UNITED STATES RICHARD NIXON and Nixon wins our war our youth Listen to the people crying; hoping for the day they ' ll be free. Can ' t you see they ' re dying? Just wake up, take a look, what do you see? We see young men, our own age, in coffins; mothers in tears for their sons, and sweethearts and wives, alone with their memories. And golden ribbons, those fortunes of war.

Tigert Hall and other similar buildings house a body of people who have the power to carry out the living and learning experience of UF students, both in and out of the classroom. They seem to have this lousy image of an unresponsive, red tape bureaucracy, practically impossible to cut. And then here we are. 24,000 almost. And we must do well – for our parents, peers, and for ourselves. We are characterized as the most well-prepared and brightest students to pass this way. We are more mature, our average age being 21. And we are more serious. Look at us. The faces in this yearbook look much older than the smooth childlike features of those students 15 years ago who seemed only concerned with football games and keg parties. Perhaps it is because we are more aware, more thoughtful and feel a personal responsibility for what is happening in the world around us. But the most striking characteristic we possess is that we are perhaps the most lonely, both intellectually and socially, to pass this way. Part of the reason for this unprecidented lonliness is the overwhelming size of the university we inhabit. To cope with the large size we put an emphasis on intimacy as a protective reaction. To simply survive we pull back and reach for nitches of security where we become a face, a name, to a small circle of others, so that in turn we become something called self. Perhaps a part of the lonliness is bound up in the complex and fragmented education process the university stuffs us with. It is hard to get a handle on life when education means going from one department to the other and finding incredibly different worlds. The faculty has even lost the sense of wholeness because they cannot speak knowledgeably about anything other than their own separate specialties. The wholeness we seek is buried in the bits and scraps tossed at us while running from department to department. And we frustratingly find that the more we find out the less we know and it keeps getting bigger. The cubicle departments weakly try to provide us with an academic experience and instead extract work from us with syllubus wire pliars. All this happens while the intellectual stimulation, real challenges and the search for a self cause are left in the dust ... And all this leads to the gap. Where is that magic flow of communication between the loner and the administration and faculty? That ' s just it. The lack of communication is getting communicated. When the administration sets up a ' meet-your-UF-president-social ' and nobody shows, or when handbooks on placement centers, women, minority groups and services are distributed and not so much as opened, or an instructor extracts a whole class of failing narks on his exam so that he must curve the grade drastically, the communication is getting across from us to them. They know we are not plugged in and are acutely aware of this silent communication. The administration and faculty are trying. They have come to realize that in order to communicate with us, they must meet on our own grounds. But the most important breakthrough is that they admit they are floundering and lagging behind our thinking. And there is hope because they are not just giving up. hey are entertaining ideas concerning a more visual, speedy and effective service information to get the ideas across. For example: you suddenly decide you want to go on the pill, but you don ' t know how to go about it. You simply would go to the information center, plug in a casset and learn all you need to know, complete with a slide show. Perhaps this moves a little toward intimacy that we need. And, after a long waiting time, the faculty is again coming into its own in the hierarchy of reign. The administrators are beginning to learn that the faculty actually can touch the student and feel the problems far and above the Tigert inhabitors who are swimming in statistics. The administration has gone one step further. They are initiating a concrete program to help the faculty be more aware of his student through his daily observation and interaction. The faculty then carries the problem to the administration and together they look for solutions. All this - for us. But the faculty and administration could go one step further. Seventy per cent of us live off-campus We only tread the campus grounds on the way to class. It would be nice to have another reason to come back, to just jog over to campus to have coffee with an economics professor in the Union, or have a beer at the Rat with the dean of university college, or just rap in the plaza with a psychology graduate student. These are our grounds, our challenge to them to let us, one-to-one, find their dignity and worth, just like they should find ours. The result could possibly be some respect and a challenge for a self cause. And a big intellectual barrier – university college -- has been ripped open by a new progressive dean, who, in one short quarter, simply wiped out required arbitrary standardized tests. Course content is also evaluated by us. We do have a hand in the change if we will only recognize it. And the administration is beginning to see we need a grip on life, the need for a wholeness, a reason for being – here. The Job Placement Center before this year was just that -- it found jobs if you managed to make it that far. Now, it is in a process of change to help us with our careers, our cause. We often don ' t even know the alternatives we have open to us, much less how to go about riding the waves. Is that image getting less lousy? Don ' t get the impression the administration is doing us any big favors, but neither is it resisting us. We must realize their limitations. They are not anti-student, but simply bureaucrats. They cannot as yet be as open as we are. But they are coming around. Many have come down somewhat from their pedistal of experience and age and are listening to us. And we are coming around also. We protested stubbornly for a time, but now we are recognizing that working within the system is the practical, if not the best way, to communicate with the bureaucracy. Our tactics are less dramatic, our participation and influence in the larger society is more low-key. We have gained credibility and respect through our valid concerns and the ' olders ' give us merit. And they are in turn doing things that will gain respect from our side of the fence. We must be patient and be willing to go through their rules and regulations just as they are finding out they must go through ours. No matter how idealistic it may sound, the basis of our gap could be solved if on both sides of the mountain we get down to learning each person has dignity and worth. It is not an innocent idealism. It is as serious and mature as we are. We – that is, the student AND faculty AND administration – are much bigger than any so-called institution can ever be. We are alone. But together. O ' Connell those were the days fl By MARINA BLOMBERG O ' Connell was one of 1,000 rat-capped freshmen entering UF the fall of 1934. And being a freshman back then was no bed of roses. The frosh were given strict rules by upper classmen ... who were more than willing to make sure the " rats " followed rules to the letter. For one thing, they had to wear their rat caps (a beanie sort of contraption with a rather cute turned-up bill) until the beginning of Christmas holidays, excepting Sundays. They were required to speak to any and all students and faculty. The " Florida HELLO " was big back then. But undaunted, O ' Connell continued his education, in spite of strict rules and regulations. He began studying dentistry, but changed to business administration because of a lack of finances. O ' Connell earned most of his money during his college career in various and very sundry ways. He worked at Mrs. Drawdy ' s Boarding House, where meals were free if you got six paying customers and waited tables. Later he worked at the College Inn, the intramural office, and managed the ATO fraternity dining room. For a while, he was janitor in the campus post office. During his college career at UF, O ' Connell was extremely active in athletics, politics, and activities. One of the first organizations O ' Connell joined was the Alligator. He was listed as a general news staff member for the 1934-35 year. Following his older brother Phil ' s footsteps, he joined the boxing team. O ' Connell became captain of the team in 1938, winning every honor as a boxer from the Southeastern Conference Championship to becoming boxing coach. During the 1935-36 years, he served as president of the sophomore class. He joined L ' Apache dancing club, ATO, and was a member of the intrafraternity conference. He became secretary treasurer of ATO and served as its president in 1936-37. During the 1937-38 years, O ' Connell became the business administration college ' s representative to the executive Council, was elected president of the Young Democrats and Newman ' s clubs, and became a Florida Blue Key pledge. He became president of FBK in 1939. And on April 1, 1938, no fooling, O ' Connell was elected president of UF student body. It was an intense two-week campaign, ridden with intense propoganda, heated speeches, frenzied rallies and general ballyhoo (which included free shoeshines). The concluding gun found O ' Connell 147 votes ahead of his bitterest rival, Earl Powers. Along with numerous presidency-related service accomplishments the following year, O ' Connell began the Student Government book exchange on Feb. 6, 1939. The older version operated very much like the present one, with a five-cent handling charge for all b ooks brought in. During his college career, O ' Connell was also a member of the " F " club, made up of all lettering varsity athletes, was on the Board of Managers for the Florida Union, member of Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity, and a lieutenant commander in the infantry. (Yup, Rotcies were around even Steve also gathered the student body and urged them to support then-football coach Josh Cody. He had a not-so-lucky (losing) year, and there were rumors flying that an " up-North pressure group " was trying to oust Cody and install the University of Tennessee coach. Cody was reinstated, but resigned at the end of that year. Prices in O ' Connell ' s college days were a drastic reduction of today ' s. Per year, general fees and course expenses were $60.30; books and training supplies, $30; laundry and cleaning, $35, and room and board $200 to $300. O ' Connell was listed in Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities in 1938-40. He was also in UF ' s Hall of Fame: " Stephen O ' Connell: engaging personality, dynamic trustworthy — physical fitness — inititative — keen mind, strength of character — captain of boxing team — president of student body — his leadership inspires. " Not all that bad, for a football player from Palm Beach High School. O ' Connell graduated from UF in 1940 with a BSBA and LLB law degree and went on to become the state ' s youngest supreme court chief justice when he was 39. He then became President of his Alma Mater in October 1967, UF ' s first alumnus to hold such a position. And he can look back at the good old years at UF, when jooking was around ... When the girls came down from Florida State College for Women in Tallahassee and he had to put up with all the men all week here... When all the now-older buildings looked a bit newer and cleaner ... When Myrna Loy and Clark Gable played in " Too Hot to Handle, " or Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda played in " The Mad Miss Marton ... " Perhaps he even remembers when pencil sharpeners were placed in the buildings on campus in 1939... and he had a Pencil Sharpener Committee on his executive council.

There was no time for such mundane chores for this small group of students. They were much too busy last spring. They obliterated the campus with campaign posters, sang jazzy jingles over local radios, ranted about scandals in the OTHER camp (always in the other camp, of course!) and raved about their candidate, their platform, or their slate to anyone who could pass out a pamphlet or stand in a voting booth. There was the dirtier side to Student Government (SG) elections, too. Scandals abounded. Deals were made, positions were exchanged for campaign support. Campaign posters were torn down in the dark of the night, just like in junior high school. And rumors were carefully planted in the dorms about the opposition. For whatever reason, ambition or idealism, this group was running and running hard. When the dust finally settled, Sam Taylor — 23-year-old black doctorial student in sociology -- was the victor. This southern university ' s students — 20% of them — had elected the school ' s first black SG president. Taylor was the kind of president who said things like: " I am not impervious after all, " or " I don ' t see this commission as being inimical with the new board. " He always had a word for everything, but often sent readers and reporters alike to the dictionary to figure out just what it was he said. The usual complaints that SG absorbs each year were fired at Taylor and his administration: ineffectual, do-nothing, political and corrupt. Political battles were fought. Political enemies were made. But through it all, Taylor ' s image with the student body remained untarnished. A random poll of students revealed that most applauded Taylor ' s efforts and credited him with being " one of the best in recent years. " John Lundquist, a senior in education, said Taylor ' s " actions and stands add up to an excellent job. " Anna Forbes, a black freshman, said " Taylor is really close with black students. Any problems any of us had we could just go in and talk with him. If you were running out of money, or had a problem with housing, you could just go to him and he ' d try and take care of it. " I have no dealings with SG. It ' s an inert institution, " one student said. " SG does affect me somewhat, Can ' t really say how, I don ' t know how, " a senior Arts and Science major, Wayne Bell said. Such comments seem borne from ignorance rather than knowledgeable conviction. SG finances, sponsors and directs numerous groups and events on campus from their offices on the third floor of Reitz Union. The SG purse held one third of a million dollars last year, all of which came from student activity fees to the tune of $4.20 per person each quarter. The money was carefully dispensed by the student senate, which clutches the purse strings tightly. Such groups as Accent, Samson, Environmental Action Group (EAG), Florida Players, Dialogue radio show, SG Productions, Intramural sports and the Black Student Union received funding. " Students don ' t realize it, but they get a lot for their money, " Ed Berger, president of EAG, said. " We wouldn ' t have been able to stop the Cross Campus Highway two years ago without that funding for one thing. " And many students don ' t realize that several services such as abortion referral counseling, the Student Better Business Bureau and the Credit Union are SG-sponsored. Whether students are aware of it or not, SG continues to function on behalf of the students. The Honor Court continues to dispense student justice, the student senate continues to spend student money and SG officers continue to hear and act on student problems. Their ears are particularly keen at election time, which starts early on the third floor. Sides were being picked and battle plans drawn in November for the annual spring fight.

I so rarely have visitors now you know ... everyone has gone away. I looked in the mirror this morning and saw my youth transpose over my old and wrinkled face. No, that ' s okay. I ' m not feeling sad ... just a little tired ... Yes, I want to tell you of a place ... better still, I want to take you there ... no, we don ' t need a car ... it wouldn ' t be the same that way ... everything has changed. No, just listen ... I want to take you there ... it ' s so clear to me now ... I ' ve been there many times ... be careful you ' ll hit your head on that low hanging branch ... yes, it is pretty here isn ' t it. I discovered it myself one day. I used to come here alone a lot ... just to think ... then one day I wanted to share it. Oh yes, other people know this spot ... I ' ve shared it with special people, you ' re a special person, grandson, just like Jimmy. I brought Jimmy here first. We were just about your age then. He is my best friend ... he likes it here too. We used to have secret club continued on pg. 394 meetings here ... sure ... it ' s perfect for secret meetings. What? Oh yes, then as I grew older I brought Anne here ... Yes, a girl, grandson, your grandmother. She ' s my best friend, too. Someday you ' ll have a girl for a best friend even though you may not like them now. What did we do here? We shared ideas. We shared life. I brought daddy here too when he was your age. Yes, he ' s been here. No, grandson, it is not an imaginary place. It exists in your heart. No, you can ' t get there by car. You must use the password — share. People are the dearest things to us all. Without people each of us would be alone. You may not understand this now but always remember: true friends are treasures. Keep them wisely for without them this place would not exist and life would be meaningless. Grandson, today I have brought you to this place, it belongs to you now, too ... Do you understand? The small boy nodded and the two sat there for a long time in silence.
