131 THE BRAHMAN PRICE 10c VOLUME I NO. UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA TAMPA, FLORIDA DECEMBER, 1965 BRAHMAN CHRISTMAS MESSAGE OFFERED BY SENATOR SPESSARD L. HOLLAND TO THE STUDENTS AND FACULTY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA: I greatly appreciate the privilege to express, via "The Brahman", warm and cordial Christmas greetings to the faculty and student body of the University of South Florida. In addition to the enjoyment of the festivities which are traditional to Christmas, I hope that you will also use this holy occasion for serious reflection as to the origin and real meaning of the Nativity Season. It can most appropriately offer an opportunity to each of us for a searching personal inventory of the blessings which have been bestowed through the mercy and love of our Savior. Particularly at Christmas I urge you to give appreciative thought to all that you owe the Creator. Gratitude ill also due our fellow men, and especially those who are presently sacrificing for freedom halfway around the world in Asia. We are greatly indebted to the men and women who are fighting the greatly misunderstood war in Viet Nam. Though them this nation is taking a necessary stand against an antiGod philosophy of Communism which threatens to engulf all of Asia and ultimately the world, thus destroying the beliefs which we as Christians and Jews hold in Supreme Deity The sacrifices of these defenders represents the real story of Christmas, and I would hope that you accord these deserved recognitions, support and heartfelt thanks. And to all of you I extend best wishes for continued health, contentment and success throughout the coming New Year. -Spessard L. Holland Geology Club Organizing (By Bill Harrison) A group of U S.F. Geology students under the sponsorship of Dr. William Hood is in the process of forming an interest club in geology. The only requirement for membership at the present time is a genuine interest in geology. The club now meets the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30 P M in the Chemistry Bldg. Room 21 OB. At each meeting a program is presented which may include siides, films or lectures of geological nature. Many interesting geological subjects may be discussed at these meetings. The last meeting featured a slide showing of recent work done in the Bahama Islands by Dr. William Taft and several U.S. F geology students. Interested students are invlfed to join and may get further information by writing the Brahman Of fice at 10024 30th St in care of Paul DeRanek Jane Murray To Sing "Carmen" Jane Murray, music instructor at the University of South Florida, is going to sing the part of "Carmen" in the December 17th production of the St. Petersburg Civic Opera Association. The part of "Don Jose" is to be sung by John Crain of New York City. Sid ney Buckly, a stud en t at F .S.U. ,will take the part of "Esamillo" ond Doris Birstein will sing "Micaela". Director Thanos Mellos is to be introduced to local audiences in this production of "Carmen". His wife, internationally famous Elena Nikolaidi, who is currently a voice teacher at F S.U., assisted in coaching singers. The group of musicians assisting the opera are to be conducted by Thomas Briccetti, who is conductor of the St. Petersburg Symphony. These mu sicians were selected from this orchestra. Twelve members of the St. Petersburg Boy s Choir, twenty members of the St. Peter?burg Concert Ballet and other local talent also will perform. The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty and we must rise to the .occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. We m u s t disen.thrall ourselves and then we shall save our country. -Abraham Lincoln New Organization P.roposed Brahman Seeks Backing For Commuters C lub For U.S.F. The Brahman staff is seeking backing for a commuters club for U.S.F. The need for such an organization is recognized by many who travel to and from the campus. The vast majority of U.S. F students are commuting students and yet they do not have an organization which recognizes their particular situation. Many of these students have transportation problems which could be aided by a commuters club. Part of the of a commuters organization could be the planning of carpools which would save many students time and money. Plans would be made for a club emergency car pool for students who get stranded on campus while the driver for their parlicular pool is delayed for some reason. Commuting students often cannot get reserve library books because of their limited time on campus. While waiting for a reserve library book to be checked in, a commuting student must leave when his carpool is ready. A special reserve shelf for commuters could be arranged with the librarian. A room could be reserved for meetings. It is suggested that a special dining area be reserved for commuters to eat together if they wish. Commuters often complain that they do not have a sense of belonging to their University when there i s no place to meet with others with t heir same problems. A feeling of belonging is important to students who live off campus and perhaps the most important function of a commuters club would be to bring people closer together who live a great distance apart. The need for a feeling of unity at U.S.F. has been extolled for many years. The Brahman staff would like to promote a feeling of empathy. for U S .F. among these traveling students. The social activities of such an organization could be planned with commuters particular problems in mind. Events could be scheduleld so commuters could rrot only participate, but also plan and work on the projects, something they have little opportunity for under the conditions which now prevail at U.S.F. The University will recognize a student organization which serves the general purposes of the University, contributes to the service of the special interests of its members, is open to everyone at U S.F. and accepts the standards, principles, and policies of University as the basis of its principles and activities These standards could be met by a well organized commuters club. If there is an opportunity to or ganize a commuters club there would be open conduct of business, open records and open membership. Procedure for the organization of a commuters club would entail an official request to the Director of Student Organizations on campus stating objective and plans for such a group to be recognized by the University. Copies of a constitution in triplicate would have to accompany the request along with a list of prospective members with their addresses and student classification. If there is a faculty member who would like to work with the organization and planning of a commuters club we invite him to write the Brahman office. Interested students should plan to attend organizatlonal meetings as they are announced. Announcements about the development of this club will be forthcom ing as we hear from interes1ed students. lntramurals Program Is Practical While the average sport enthusiast focuses his atttention on intercollegiate and interscholastic sports which have been popularized by extensive publicity, it is necessary to recognize the other sports activities that are reaching prominence without the aid of the public news media. These emerging activi ties are intramural sports, the fastest growing sports program in educational systems. It is very important to note that the administration of U.S. F has placed intramurals above intercollegiate activities. In many schoois the intramural program has been treated as a step-child and has taken a back seat to intercollegiate competition. An example of this can be seen in one of our larger (Continued on Page 7)
Page Two Why was the idea of another campus publication con ceived? We feel students have always enjoyed campus pub lications with a fresh angle. We want to seek out human interest stories and express them pictorially. As a university expands, communication lines can become taut. Here is one more means to identify problems, praise. the worthy, rep resent the minority and to expound the confused issues. We solicit your help in identifying the problems and find ing solutions. We want to present pro and con articles on controversial issues. Academic freedom means that students be given a choice to come to their own conclusions after first being presented with conflicting materials and ideas. Democ racy demands constant evaluation of our thoughts and ac tions. It is the hope of many of our leaders that freedom of information will lead to thoughtfulness in decisions. Too few people write to the editor or attempt to express their desires by voting and working with political organizations. We urge you and challenge you to write thoughtful com mentaries on issues vital to this university and the world. Sometimes a large campus inadvertently discourages bull ses sions and small group discussions. Such an exchange of views gives the student a chance to clarify his own thinking and vocalize his deep felt emotions. Such discussion will usually be worthy of repetition to a larger audience. There may be cases where we draw the line on certain material but this will be because we wish our paper to remain in good taste. The community at large will be watching our paper as they do other campus publications. Certainly our advertisers will be vitally interested. We want the community as well as the students to know our campus more intimately. Gathered together on the campus of U.S.F. are a faculty with many achievements and a great dedication. There are many stu dent leaders whose voices should be heard and whose achievements should be known. We hope to bring the big campus family a little closer by writing human interest stories on our faculty and student leaders. This issue we have given greater emphasis to the faculty. We will continue to consider them newsworthy. However other issues may focus on student leaders. We have de cided to send many copies of this issue into homes so the parents will become interested. Often students become so involved in their studies and activities they forget to write home. We hope parents as well as students will ask, "Where is the new issue of the Brahman?" We hope to make the Brahman a scrapbook of the exciting times, familiar faces and interesting sidelights of your life at this university. If you want to get something done on th e c a m p u s a n d everybody seems to ignore you-don't fret, come and see us. We'll be glad to talk to you. Who knows, we may even do more than that-we may actually listen First write or call us for an appointment. Write us at: THE BRAHMAN OF FICE, 10024 30th Street, Tampa 33612, or phone 935-5770 be tween the hours of 5 and 9 p.m Letters To The Editor A letter to the editor, why not? Everyone is entitled to express his own private opinion. This is one of the main reasons for a strictly campus newspaper, The Brahman. The Brahman staff, though small, hopes that it can project opin ions of everyone on campus that desires to be represnted. No matter what the issue, if it can be treated respectfully, we will be more than willing to print both sides so that all readers will understand fully the matter at hand. If you have a pet gripe, a useful idea that may benefit all, or a worthwhile expression; don't hesitate to write us; this is the entire university's paper and it does not give preference to a chosen few. It takes a lot of Bull to become president THE BRAHMAN Pep Pills Not The Solution to Exam Week Tiredness Get some sleep-don't hit the pep pills is our advice for exam week fatigue. Pep pills taken over a period of time have a devastating effect on you physically. The pills short circuit 1he user's feeling of tiredness and burns up re serves of energy in the body. You may go great guns today and pay the price tomorrow. Excess energy spent today must be replaced in the fu ture. Taking pep pills for a prolonged time can result in sudden total collapse of the individual. l'f you have a tough sched ule this week, we advise you to plan for it intelligently. Get adequate sleep and stay off the pills. U .S.F. Offers Courses In Continuing Edu. The of Sou t h Florida and its Bay Campus facility are centers for con tinuing education studies.

Barker) The children of the great middle class are ready for scflool. They come to school with their dresses starched, with their fingernails clean, with their underarms deodorized, And wi1h all sign of spunk and originality drained out of them They are ready for school. How different are the offspring of the lower class! It's true they've been socialized too, But their socialization has been all wrong. They've learned that a person should get whatever pleasure he can get when he can, but we mus1' teach them that one must sacrifice today's pleasure in order to look forward to tomorrow. They 've learned to think that there's fun to be had in the world, But we must teach them that telling a funny story might hurt someone's feelings. They've learned to enjoy horsing around, But we must teach them to guard against getting hurt-or even worsedirty They ve learned to love rythm and harmony and melody, But we must 1each them their music's cheap and that they must cultivate a taste for 'good' music. They've learned tc expect that if they get down and-out some one will give them a hand, But we must teach them their only security lies in learning to look out for their own interests. They've learned to expect that most people usually mean what 1hey say, But we must teach them that it's not safe to trust anyone. It's a big job overcoming the lower class' lack of values, But we can raise them to our level. Museum Near U.S.F. Campus Offers Many Attractions A hop, skip and jump from U.S. F campus is the Museum of Science and Natural History, the only natural science mu seum in Hillsborough County. It is located at 1101 East River Cove. It is three blocks East of Nebraska Avenue and the Sulphur Springs arcade. The seven buildings are spread out over several acres of river front property. Those of you who saw the museum in its beginning years will be surprised at its growth. Added to the original building are a small auditorium, a sea room, an art building, a natural science building with live snake n i nrJiriory shoo, u iibrory, und a do:l 1 001'1'1. Married students and professors with children from six to high school age w ill find the exhibits fascinating. Don't be surprised, Mom and Dad, if you become interested also. The original title of "Youth Museum" was changed because the museum has become the focal point of adult interest groups as well as a stimulus for the young. Dr. Meyerriecks, U.S.F. professor, found the Yellow Crowned Night_ Heron nesting on the museum grounds and observed the b1. rds for many weeks. He included his observations in one of h1s pub lications. Several U S .F. professors have been consultants or con tributors to the Quarterly Journal of the Museum that was once called the Quipu. They are: Dr. Henry Winthrop, Dr. Andrew Meyerriecks, Joseph A Carr, Dr. John Betz, Dr. Robert Fuson, Dr Robert W Long, Dr. Charles Arnade, Robert Egolf, M.D., T. C. Helvey. Consultants who gave advice but have not as yet contributed articles are Dr. Gerald G. Robinson, Dr. John B. Adams, Dr. James D Ray, Dr. J.M. Cooper, Dr. W. W. Kendall, Dr. Frank T. Friedl and Dr. Glen E. Woolfenden. Cop[es of the Quarterly Journal are distributed on campus by Dr. Ashford's office. Copies are kept in the library. Beginning September, 1964, De Paul University's School of Education began operating an 'Opinion Survey Poll Center. Each month, a random sampling of public, private and pa rochial schools within the State of Illinois will be sent a ques tionaire on three critical issues in education. The purpose of the poll is to determine whether or not the answers provided by the schools indicate a significant trend of opinion. Results of each month' s findings will be published in newspapers and educational journals. THE BRAHMAN BRAHMAN EDITORIAL STAFF Bill Newell and Jo Ann Roush .. ........ ................. ....... ...

December, 1965 A Visit With Dr. Nichols Assistant professor of political science, Roger Nichols, joined the faculty in September, 1965, after spending one year as an instructor at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Ra ton and three years on a teaching fellowship at Florida State University while doing graduate work in political science. The new professor is a native of Tennessee ; Knoxville to be e x act, and by his own admission was seventeen years of age before he knew. that he was, a hillbilly. After a brief stint at the University of Tennessee i n 1943, Professor Nichols joined the Army as a 'Selective Service volunteer" and spent two and one-half years in J he m edical de partment of the Air Force After the war he entered Tusculum College at Greenville, Tennessee, and played three years of varsity football and three years of varsity tennis while posting a four point average in his major field, political science Nichols averred that we should have probably played the other schools in political science since we only won two games. After his departure, the college dropped football, but there was no coincidence involved. Following undergraduate work he attended Peabody Col lege where he received his M A degree in school administra tion and upon graduation immediately became a tennis pro fessional, a career which he followed for two years. Following public school teaching in Tennessee, West Vir ginia and Ohio, he returned to graduate school where he com pieted for the Ph. D degree. Professor Nichols thinks that in spite of all the furor about the decline in moral standards and old fashioned virtues among the young, 1he present generation o f students is more serious about college than some of the former genera tions. "College work is more difficult and demanding !oday than formerly, and the student who doesn' t apply himself to day has a great deal of difficulty surviving. Dr. Nichols thinks that if the college student today felt the same kind of threat 1hat the class of 1940 felt, t ,hat he would probably respond the same as his generation did. Professor Nichols, whose hobbies include sports, argues strongly that a person can be both a scholar and an athlete. He said, "it is a fairly modern idea that the t w o are divided -indeed Aristotle preached the "Golden Mean' which was a combination of mental and physical development. Nichols st ates that the chief fault of intercollegiate sports is that they may be more for the alumni than the students. Budgetary con sideration may prevent the student from even getting a seat i n th e gym or the stadium, and the average student may not get a chance to participate. Professor Nichols describes his marital situation as very serious -thre e children under the age of fi v e 'Back in 1961 my wife and I d r o ve through the campus of U .S.F. and agreed that I should t e a ch at U.S .F. when I graduate d from Florida State In th e words of the immortal Mr. Plunkitt, the boss of New York Tammany Hall, I seen my chance and I took it.' THE NICHOL'S FAMILY Student Publication Goes To 20 Colleges THE BRAHMAN Publications On Campus There are two publications on the USF campus you prob ably never even heard about. That is excluding, of course, The Brahman,' which you are all aware of by now. One of these publications is the Sunscreen.' It is pub lished each Friday by the Uni versity of South Florida Office of Information Services In cidentally, if you do not know where the Office of Informa tion Services is, it's in the south east corner of the ad ministration b u i I din g This weekly communique reports all coming events as well as other use f u I information which concerns the entire campus. It is usually posted on several bulletin boards a round school so watch for it. The s econd publication is called 'Sundry' and, as the name implies, contains vari ous and assorted information for the USF staff. It is publish ed bi -monthly by, again, the Office of Information Services. These periodicals may go unnoticed by most students, but they both require a lot of work. Information Services is doing a fine job and we think they deserve a lot of credit. College Daily Features Off Campus News Oklahoma City University has started to publish its first daily newspaper.

For the uninformed, 30th St. passes Fletcher Ave and runs out eight miles into the unknown. It is eight miles of uninterrupted, paved, twolane highway that ends abruptly with nothing on either side or in front except cow pasture and swamp. This beautiful highway and expenditure of the taxpayer' s money has not gone to waste, however. Young people of both sexes, along with the Highway Patrol and Sheriff's Department, have taken over the end of this road, and made it i n to a dragstrip. White lines have been painted at a quarter-mile interval and various appropriate say ings, such as "Start" and "Money line" have been added. Almost every Friday and Saturday night, drag races are run off, usually for money. There have been as many as two hundred participants and spectators there at vari ous times, depending on how (Continued on page 6)
December, 1965 Peter O'Sullivan of The U.S.F. Drama Department If you were to visit the lovely two-story Spanish home of Peter O'Sullivan in Temple Terrace you might be met at the door by six-year-old Megan dressed and ready for a modern dance recital. Three-year-old Brian might be there too if he wasn' t taking a snooze on the sofa. Of course you'd be in troduced to Tiger, six-month-old pet cat. Life is relaxed in the O'Sullivan household although Mr. O Sullivan often has to be excused for play rehersals. Of course these hours of extra-curricular duties are vitally interesting to the dedicated actor and director. 'Tartuffe' was an especially exciting assignment for Mr. O'Sullivan and the cast since on English professional, Paul Massie, took the lead role. 'We did not bring Mr Massie for the box office, remarks Peter O'Sullivan. Bringing in this actor is centered on the krds as an experience for them. We believe this gives them stan dards by which their imaginations .can be stretched beyond what they could conceive .' Mr O Sullivan alternates with Jack Clay in directing stu dent productions. They have two different approaches ro di recting Peter O Sullivan believes the student actor is the gainer if continually exposed to both methods. 'Jack starts internally and works out,' he stated, 'seeking to achiPve a truthful por trayal through inner motivation. My approach is just the op posite. I am concerned primarily with what the actor projects, whether or not he feels it. Therefore, I concentrate on technique and discipline in the form of expression. Since most of the male members of Mr. O'Sullivan' s family are involved in law or politics, he was interested in pre-law at one time. After three years at Princeton he trans ferred to 1 he University of North Carolina wheie he eventually received 'lis B .A. and M.A in dramatic arts. The maternal in fluence had won out-mother had been a Zeigfeld girl. Love entered Mr. O 'Sullivan's life at this time. He met his present wife in Chapel Hill She had recently been graduated from the University of North Carolina with a degree in drama .. Mr O Sullivan was employed in movie making at the time, assisting Robert Snyder, who had been given a grant to make educational films Keen O 'Sullivan, like many faithful professors' wives, gave up plans for further education and travel to help her hus band through graduate school. She was a public relations di rector for Blue Cross and Blue Shield during those years. She edited a small informational paper along with her other du ties. After Peter s graduation, the O Sullivans traversed the country for a stimulating challenge: a position that included acting as well as teaching at Stephens College in Missouri. The low teacher-student ratio, and the chance to act was a unique experience. 1 The educo1ional picture was not as yet complete.

Young people see no reason to stop using this abandoned highway for dragging and testing their cars, and, except when the police come, they continue these activities The safety factor to t h e m seems neglible. U n I e s s the highway is either torn up or completed someday, there is no reason to assume that the drags at this spot will stop. "GIFT GUIDE" Hurry!! UNUSUAL ONE OF A KIND GIFTS FOR HOME OR HOST (ESS) li SMALL DEPOS"in fi : ::j+. 0 :.t ; The Gift Shop TEMPLE TERRACE SHOPPING CENTER THE BRAHMAN December, 1965 U. S. F. Bay Campus Highlights Bay Campus is buzzing with activity. Students are renovating, exercising, socializing and studying. The "we're-inthe-same-boat" attitude has developed a closeness not always possible on a large campus. Many of the handicaps experienced in September have been remedied. Mr Goree, interim center administrator, has stated that most of the problems will be alleviated when the old buildings are replaced. Although temporary problems have arisen, the fact that the Bay Campus was available for 244 freshmen this Sep tember was a miracle U.S.F took over July first and renovation plus a myriad number of administration problems had to be solved. Private funds have been raised to help the renovation. About ?5 thousand dollars had been collected by November first from fourteen different St. Pete business firms and phil antropists. The St. Petersburg Times has given splendid coverage of the campus, its development and problems. A total of $200,000 in pledges were promised within a two weeks per. iod near the beginning of trimester one. Dr. Michael Bennett, president of St Petersburg Junior College, is chairman of the USF Expansion Executive Committee. This committee will continue raising the funds necessary for new buildings 11nd further renovation. Mrs. Michael Bennett, a member of the steering committee of the "Friends of Bay Campus," states continuous efforts are being made so life will be more convenient at Bay Campus. Transportation to local churches, a bus tour of the local sights and an invitation to events at St. Petersburg Junior College are some of the services the committee has provided. Student initiative has helped too. An abandoned building overlooking Tampa Bay Channel is now the scene of frenzied activity as students create a new coffee-house, "The Spider' s Web" Also s tudents have used originality in the decor of their rooms The saying goes, "home is what you make of it" Freshmen at Bay Campus have helped make it their paradise. The routine at Bay Campus is broken by boat cruises and tours, chats along the sea wall, Thursday night movies, fish ing off the pier, workouts in the exercise room, dances and intramural sports. Some girls engage in powder puff football matches. The girls have also developed an interest in the Morse code, flashing messages across the channel to the Coarst Guard station with their flashlights. The Bay Campus inherited its library of 59,911 volumes, 10,500 pamphlets and 17 ,000 magazines. U.S. F has added 6,000 volumes. The reading room is open twenty-four hours a day. The functional library is open until ten p m week nights. At the present the library is used more by the off-campus cen ters than the freshme. n Student assistants may help to lengthen the hours of service Four nights a week 393 Pinellas Countians invade the campus from 6:30 to 9 :30. The FICUS program is not dead but merely expanding under a new name, "The Center for Continuing Education Courses are provided in business administration, education, engineerng and lberal arts. Although freshmen have been disappointed in the number of courses offered to them, each trimester the number will increase. Classes are small, encouraging a rapport between professors and students not always possible in larger sections. The faculty of fourteen are popular with the frosh. The air-conditioned VW bus that links Bay Campus with Tampa carries no students. Faculty members and resident in structors are the only passengers. A committee has been appointed to consider buying a larger bus for student use. However, students may transfer to campus after several trimesters. They may get their basics at Bay Campus and broaden their scope on the main campus. It will be interesting to see if friendships gained in this new experiment will continue when students step into the complex of a larger campus.

December, 1965 INTRAMUARLS PROGRAM IS PRACTICAL (Continued from 1) state universities. This university offers an intramural program to its students during the. season when the varsity squac:t 1:0. practicing on the field a great portion of the time. This leaves little time fo.r intramural activities and many students are de prived of recreational participation. The admistrators of such a university are in effect saying that it is more important for 20, 30 or 40 players to participate every day in the week, than to have 400, 600 or 800 students participating in this same area. It is true that ours is more a nation of spectators than participants in sports. Perhaps the reason for this is many people never had an. opportunity to participate. John F Ken nedy spearheaded a program for greater physical fitness in America. This program was not built around spectator !Sports but on active participation in sports. The University of South Florida has constructed some of the finesi outdoor intramural facilities in America. Touch football, soccer, softball diamonds, courts and other playing areas are constructed and maintained for the participation of the many-not the few. The equipment used at U.S F in this program is the best money can buy and the planning and supervision which goes into each game is more than adequate. As for pqrticipation, it is estimated that over 2000 intramural games will be played at U .S.F. in the 1965-66 school year. There will be more than 7,000 participants and we'll have our share of spectators for these contests with abour 14,000 students viewing the games. On any given day in November, for e xample, a visitor to the intramural activity area would have found five touch football games for men and four women' s intramural basketball games being played. This represents approximately 150 active participants each day. Generally the re are as many as 500 spectators viewing the more highly competitive games. Throughout the year over 500 different teams participate in 22 different activities. Future p l ans include additional intramural areas and lights so corn petition can be scheduled at night too. The intramural program contributes to physical, social and emotional development of the individual and is an intregal part of the educational program at U.S F It allows for an outlet of energy resulting in a sense of enjoyment, accomplish ment and group loyalty through .participation. It is a program for the skilled, limited and even handicapped student of the university. It is a growing giant which requires constant or ganization and it is not a program without problems. In spite of these problems, the 1-M program at U .S.F. has already been recognized as a leader in the intramural1 field and str i ves to make its own contribution to the students of a growing uni versity.
