THE BRAHMAN PRICE 1 Oc VOLUME 1 NO. 2 SE'RVING THE UNI; VERSITY COMMUNITY TAMPA, FLORIDA JANUARY, 1966 Rep. Sam Gibbons and Pat Leatherby. Ga y Ferrara Succeeds Mary Alyce Brooks As President of Athenaeum Mrs. Mary Alyce Brooks will regretfully hand over the Athenaeum gavel to Gay Ferrara this trimester. lVIary has been active in Athenaeum since its beginning in '61. Mary has found her presidency challenging and, though she will miss her old friends when she starts graduate work in Tallahassee or Illinois, she knows she is leaving the organization in able hands. Mary relates that Athenaeum started a new project this fall. Members have been asked to offer assistance to advisers during pre-registration. They have been asked by Mr. Henry Robertson, coordinator of advising, to help lower division students plan their schedules. This service should offset the tendency of students to take advice from casual acquaintances. Besides the AAA (Academic Advising Assistance) Athenaeum has sponsored two conferences on campus. Athenaeum is a woman's honorary association limited to 25 active members who have .completed 60 semester hours a t university level. In future years when members have met the official requirements. Athenaeum will become a Mortarboard chapter. All members of Athenaeum must have a 3.0 or better average. JV.fem bers are elected by the active members at the beginning of each t'erm. Selection of new members is based on leadership in the university and community as well as on grades. Advisers are Dean of Women, Margaret Fischer Dr. Mildred Adams and Dr. Marietta Waite. USF Foundation And Its Role In The Overall Educationa l Scope of USF The University of South Florida Foundation was created by a group of interested and public spirited cit izens who devoted a lot of their time, effort and money in making it possible for the University of South Florida to have a rapid growth toward distinction. In a very rea l sense, these friends have been standing in as our alumni. We have been building on the experie!1ce of universities in setting up plans for fundraising; plans that will make it easy to give money now or leave money later; plans that often save the donor considerable amounts in taxes and thus make the actual giving eas ier and more attrac tive. The objects of the Foundation are to provide charitabl e and educational aid by making availab l e money, other property and services to the Uni versity of South Florida and to associations ,corporations, and other organizations which are orga nized and operated exclusively for 'charitable and/or educational purposes and a re assisting the said University in carrying out its educational and related functions. The Foundation provides scholarships loans and financial assistance to students attending the said and to others engaged in ed u cat ional and scho larl y pursu it s under the direc tion and g uid ance of USF; we promote educational and other related activities of the University; we e ncourage res ea rch learning and diss emination of information in all educational fields in which the University is carry in g on activities. No part of th e property or money of the Foundaton shall inure to th e bene fit of any member, truste e officer or any private indiv idual (except that reasonable compensation may be p aid for service s r endered to or for the Foundation a ffectin g it s objects), and no part of the activities of th e Foundation shall be the carrying on of l jropaganda, or otherwise attempting to influence le gislation or participating in or intervening in any politica l campaig n on b e hall' of any candidate. All p e rsons natural or corporate inte rested in th e charitable and educational obj ectives of the Foundation and desiring to promote the interest of the U niversity of South Florida are eligib l e to become M emb e r s of the Foundation P e rson s who are m embers are established as pro vided in the B y Laws of the Foundation and they pa y to th e T r easure r o f th e Foundation annual contributions in any amount.

The aiTairs o f th e F oundatio n hav e b ee n manag c d b y a Board o f (Crm/illllr rl 011 J>ngt' ; Col. f ) Student Opinions Sought In New Campus Surveys usF Senior Off To Washington -To Have Position With Sam Gibbons Pat Leatherby has resigned the presidency of The Young Democrats of USF for an exciting new job as elevator operator in the House Office building and part-time assistant to Sam Gibbons. The 4-month long position will enable Pat to meet Washington luminaries and to feel the politi cal pulse of the nation. Afterwards he will return to finish 9 hours of credit needed for USF graduation. Then he plans to run for a loc al political post. Pat saw the position advertised on the University Center bulletin board. A talk with George Miller of the cooperative education staff led to final arrangements for the position. He left for Washington, D.C. December 29. -Pat's interest in political science became more than academic in January of 1964 He became president of The Tampa Young Democrats in March. Pat was Tampa office manager for Freel Karl in the la st gubernatorial campaign. Last June he was elected to the state executive board of the Young Democrats, representing the university chapters. Pat received the Outstanding College Young Democratic Award for 64-65. He prizes an invitation from the Inaugural Committee to the inauguration of our president, Lyndon B. Johnson. Another letter Pat treasures is a note from Vice President Hubert Humphrey, thanking him for helping in the September I 4 dinner in Tampa. For yea rs Pat was sure that the theatre would be his profession. His first interes t in spe ec h was aroused in the eighth and ninth grades when he particip:o t.ed in at the Shriner's hospital where he re cuperated from tlie effects of polio for a year and a half Drama and speech courses at Chamberlain High School followed As a freshman at USF he was determined to major in drama. The second trimester of the freshman year inspired a new interest. Dr. Frederick Horrigan taught him the introductory course in political scie nce that changed hi s life Now after 36 hours of political and social science, Pat' s interest-in poiitics i s no longer academic. He now plans to go into politics actively. Pat hopes to see Dr. Horrigan in Washington, D.C. where he is teaching. The Kennedy assassination helped to deepen Pat's determination to become a dedicated politician. He probably will quote from Kennedy in future campaigns. The role of presidency of the USF Young Democrats will be taken over by Dave Clayton in trimester 2. The organization membership at USF ranges from 30 to 50. The college Young Democrat groups are about 45% of the membership in the state. Participation in state com en tions enables college students to rub elbows with rising young lawyers and politicians. Such contacts are valuable in future political careers. Members range in age from 18 to 40. When asked to offer advice to freshmen Pat suggested : follow the advice of Socrates : "Know Thyself; know your strengths and your weak nesses; your relation to the universe ; your potentialities; your spiritual heritage; your aims and purposes; take stock of yourse lf. Follow the wise axiom of Shakespeare who wrote: "To thine own self be true, and it must follow as the night the day thou cans t not be false to any man." Pat will serve as Washington correspondent for the Brahman. Linda Zuro -New Miss Aegean Is Tapped For Athenaeum Honor Society Linda Zuro, recent winner of the Miss Aegean contest, has been tapped for Athenaeum Honor Society, an organization that requires a good GPR and a flair for campus activities Linda is also president of Fides Sorority. Linda transferred here from Presb yterian College in St. Petersburg. One of the reasons for Linda's transfer to U.S F wa s the greater opportunity to participate in student activit i es here. Linda h as really tak e n to the many fin e opportunities to join a c tiv e campus orga nizations at U S.F. While at Presb yterian, Linda decided to major in psychology. S h e was very much influenced in this direction by Dr. \ V illiam Angermeier who t aught the introductory course in psychology at Presb y t e rian. Linda says that this w as the fir s t course she took wh i ch appealed to her and sust a ined h e r interest. She has since majored in psycholog y and will gradua t e from U S.F. this spring. Linda then plans to work a yea r and then con tinue with g r aduate work in clinical psychology le ading to a doctorate. P erhaps one of the things that marks Linda Zuro as outstanding i s her interest in all people. Linda adv i ses entering freshmen to b a l ance their acti\'it ies to include academics soc ial and sports act iviti es, with more emphasis o n academics. As a member of Ath e n ae um Linda will p a rti cipate in a program to ach ise l owe r l eve l stude nt s within h e r fie ld of inte r est. This n ew program. which i s to b e cond u c t ed in cooperation with Dr. H enry R obertson and th e Ba s i c Swdies Corps of Ad\ i sors will in clud e h elping in some of the orientatio n ac t i vit ies at U S F Brahman Poll To Sample USF Student Opin.ioa,'S The Brahman Poll will be r.struc tured for distribution in th e early weeks of February. This new poll will sample opinions of students from all quarters of the USF (ampus. It is planned to aid student government in future projec t s and aiel the administration in evaluat ing the views of the students on various campus problen's. The use of the poll in determining courses of action on the part of the admin istration and the SA will be liniit e d unless there is ample student participation in the poll. To stnu:ture the poll so that it will be effective the Brahman seeks the help of stu dent organizations who may be in terested in participating. Organiza tions are asked to help in fornllllat ing items for the -poll. It is hoped that organizations will a lso ai.d in evaluating the results of each poll. In order to achieve a good sample it is hoped that organizations will assist in the poll taking process each rrionth. The Brahman Poll. also seeks act ive participation from fac ulty members who are interested. Suggestions as to the method of poll-taking have been made and plans are underway to activate the poll in the near future. It is planned to use various to distribute the brief poll at vario us points on the campus simultaneous ly Students passing the various di s tribution points will be asked to fill out the brief written forn 1 and return it to the poll taker imi'nedi ately or send the form to the Brah man office It will not be necessar y for students to sign the forms : It is hoped that through a mass clisrtiuu tion effort the sampling wi!J !Je large enough to indicate trends in student thinking on various topics and issues. Faculty members and student, who are interested in assisting with the formulation of items lor the poll are invited to comribute their ideas at meeting s of the Brahman Poll Council. The first meeting of the Brahma n Poll Council is sched uled for Tuesday, January 1'8, at the Brahma n Office at I 002 1 Street at 8 p m Linda Zuro


Page Two EDITORIAL vVhat a student does with hi s spare time may well d e t ermine hi s s u c cess or failure in co ll ege There are many c ollege stud ents who are work ing part time, carrying 1 5 and. a success of by parti cipating in extr a curn cular ac u v1t1es. One may ask, What 1 s the be s t road for me? Should I work and carry a full class load as well? If 1 do this, will I have tim e for the extra-curricular acti vities I en joy?" Each student must find out for himself the burden h e can carry. During the freshman year at co ll ege a student should on his courses and g i ve them first priority. If he mus t work or hkes to work he should g ive this second priority. If, h e prefe rs the extra curric ular ac tivities h e should g ive this second priority. During t h e fir s t year it is hi g hly improbable tha t a mixture of the three w ill work out for the average student. Students should bear in mind that there are ways of adjusting to the demands of a ll of these three phases of c ollege life. If yo u are one who must work and who lik es to participate in extra curricular activiti es, yo u can adjust to the situation by cutting down on your cl ass loa?. YDu could carry 1 2 hours p e r trimester instead of a full load. A ft e r a tnmes ter of experimentation yo u ca n tell if carrying 12 hours i s the b est. Twel ve hours of cred it with a 3.0 GPR is better than 1 5 hours of 2.0 GPR. The factor here becom es a time fa c tor. If you are for ce d to t a k e J ess hours to do a ll you want in co ll ege it will t a k e yo u a little longe r to graduate. But, r e member this, you will be that muc h the better for spending the extra tim e i n co ll ege to ge t the broad experience of work, study and extra curric ul a r ac tivities. A freshman student should gauge the three phases earl y and de termine his co u rse with due regard for his ultimate goal. A pre-law student may w ish to emph as ize study and work at first gradually adding th e extra c urricul a r actiVit i es. He should decide whether hi s GPR will earn him acceptance in the l aw school of his c hoice If he finds tha t hi s CPR i s fallin g off wh e n he includes a ll three p h ases of ac tivity in hi s planning, h e should take fewer cou r ses and take a little longer to finish hi s pre-law curriculum With a good CPR and certain acceptance in the l aw schoo l of hi s c h o ice Certainly h e i s sac rificing tim e, but this i s th e one e l e m ent tha t yo uth ca n a fford to sac rifice especia lly, if in the sac rificing, a we ll rounded and experience d individual results. The one f acto r tha t n ea rl y a ll young people mi sunder stand i s thi s tim e factor. G e n e r ally th e c olle g e population w i shes to g r aduate a t a certa in date at a n y cost. The loss in experi ence in work and extra c ur ricul a r and s o c ial ac ti v iti es are hardly worth the sm a ll gain in tim e If you are a freshma n entering in 1966, you do not necessa ril y hav e to gradua t e four yea rs l a t e r You may gradua te in five yea rs and be much better off tha n the h a rried classmate who did the same job in four yea r s but n eve r h a d a chance to en joy cultural and socia l activities and who m ay not h ave earned as good a GPR in preparation for future profes s io n a l training in graduate school. Take s to c k of the situation now, freshmen. Take a good close look at yourself and your capabilities. Decide what you need to make yo ur se l f the p e r so n yo u warn to be. R emembe r in doing thi s to t a k e into co n s id e r ation th e three important phases of co ll ege experien ce: l Study. 2. Work Experience. 3 Extra Curricula r and Soc ial ... and d o n t overlook th e one fa ctor which ca n g i ve yo u a ll of these in just the proponion you d es ir e th e m a little more t im e. -LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -Dear Brahman Editors: ( In response to your article sug gest in g a commuters' club. ) A commute r unencumbered b y n e i ghbors o r sib lin gs i s undoubt e dly th e mo st e n v ied of hi s commuting comrades.

THE BRAHMAN Information Service Aids USF And C'ommunity After years of planning USF has become accredited. This f ac t i s more impressive in light of the pub li city concerning secondary schoo l accreditation problems in Hillsbor ough and Duva l Counties. Unf or tunately s u c h educational ach i eve ments a r e not always we ll publiciz ed in lo ca l newspapers. Dis sens i o n tragedy and fadi s m often crow d out the everyday ac hievements of the "good g uys" on campus. USF, lik e so many unive r s iti es in the nation, has suffered from till fair headlines that included p e rson a l acc usations rather than the opin ion of edu cators qualified to judge Now the of accreditation I S before the public. The "image" of the unive r s it y is important to the student as we ll as the administration in t erms of pers onal pride as we ll as acceptance in graduate school and certain posi tions. This image is created by ef. fectively presenting the true pic ture to the public. INFORi\fATION SERVICES is this important link between the unive r sity and the community. Mr. \ V illi a m Deibler, director of information serv ices since Septem ber, says he's s till learning the de tails of hi s job, but fortunate l y h e h as able ass i stants in .Jerr y Kirk p a tri c k coordinator of n ews services and Frank Spear, coordinator of publications. Mr. Deibler states that the infor mation serv ice _offices of the state universities often confer. Also, the USF office work s with the Tampa Chamber of Commerce and lo ca l news media. The relationship be tween the US F office and the news media is a two-way route: the uni, e rsitv sends rel eases to the media and the media may make special requests as book reviews v Vhen speakers are requested or background information on profes sors i s necessa ry for introductions, the offi ce v; infun11ation ser v i ce s is happy to offer s uggestion s o r pro vid e data. The n ew director h as recently re tired from the navy. He was a pilot fo r many years and h a d served 17 years as a public information spe c ialist : Mr. Deibler i s a graduate of Pennsylvania State College where he received an A. B. degree in jour n a lism He was a reporter in those earl y days after graduation. Hertz Agency Now Serving USF Campus The HERTZ ca r r enta l agency is now serving the USF campus. Rent a facilities are loc ated at 1212 E. Fowler Avenue, near the campus. T h e new service features week-end special r enta l r a tes. Hertz manage ment cautions that the low week end rates are predicated upon ma ture and responsible care for the r ental cars.

L. ]1'. Our educational system today has become its own worst enemy. While building one of the greatest mass educational systems in the history of mankind, we have seriously jeopardized the most basic purpose and the greatest accomplishments of education throughout the ages. We are participants in an insid ious transition that has converted education at every level from an unparalleled opportunity for the student to become a unique and highly valued member of our so ciety to an overtly regulated, over whelmingly oppressive force for conformity. Here are five specific instances: 1. Increased class sizes and student-teacher ratios 2 Uniform standards for educational policies and funding 3. Acceleration and credit examination 4. Automated instruction 5 Mushrooming requiremems for accreditation, for certification. for entrance or graduation. If a six year old should decide over the years to work toward a PhD., less than 10 percent of his or her 20+ years of academic work is op.tional or electh:e. The student ends up in an academic straight jacket developed from high school and college graduat.ion requirements and the demands of profes sional societies. Can we truthfully say that we are so certain of what skills and knowledges are absolutely essential to the life and career of any particular itHiividual that we can prescribe more than 90 percent of his or her academic career? I frankly doubt it. Education in tw entieth ce ntury America has accomplished a mir acle It has constantly raised a minimum standard of education and made it available to virtually every motivated studem in our nation today. No other nation on earth has e ven a p p r o a c h e d this accomplishment. However, from this massive ef fort a new and tougher ch allenge has emerged, one that is every bit as critical for our future as minimum standards in mass education has been for our past. That chal lenge is to educate each individual in response to hi s or her unique characteristics and potential ... If we ignore this challenge or are unable to cope with it, a much more serious crisis lies ahead. It was fictitiously described by George Orwell's 1984" and b y B. F Skin ner's "\

Janua 1966 THE BRAHMAN The Krivaneks: A Science Oriented Family Sacred Heart The Krivaneks like the country. Even though the city dwellers are dosing iJt, a buffer zone of several acres will keep mother nature close. Camelias, azaleas, orchids and children need room to grow! Jenny, aged II, and Jody, aged 5, will no doubt become botanists or at least science majors. Jenny now attends seventh grade at Berkley Episcopal School on Davis Islands This term she was very proud to be on the headmaster's list. Robin and Jerome Krivanek share a professional interest in zoology. Robin Krivanek was a lab assistant to her husband at Tulane University She secured a B .S. in zoology at Swarthmore and a masters in zoology at the University of The couple met here in graduate school. Dr. Krivanek was working on his doctorate. He had received his bachelors and masters at the University of lllinois. Naturally Mrs. Krivanek shares her husband's enthusiasm for research although she is no longer professionally involved. Dr. Krivanek has made application for and has won approval for over worth of grants from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Health. He resigned as chairman of the zoolgoy department so he could devote more time to research. He recently has made application for a new grant to study slime mold, which has been his subject for several grants. Dr. Krivanek has selected the slime mold because the investigative process is relatively simple as compared to higher forms of life. This task, however, is not trivial, for following one chemical through different stages may take many years of study and may lead to hypotheses concern ing higher forms of life. A four months fellowship took the Krivaneks to Oakridge, Tennessee, where they had a chance to use isotope tracers on the slime mold. Future investigations may be just as exciting. Dr. Krivanek explained that grants not only bring prestige to the host university, they may include a bequest of equipment used in the experiments. Student assistants may receive hourly pay as undergraduates or a monthly salary if they are graduates. Dr. Krivanek is very proud to be chairman of the pre-dental and pre medical committee. This committee has helped to place 28 students in 10 different institutions. There are nine students who have been recently accepted and others who are being considered. Some students, who have written to medical admission boards on their own, have been referred to Dr. Krivanek's committee. If you are interested make an appointment to see Dr. Krivanek in Life Science 201. The Gold Key honor society is sponsored by Dr. Krivanek. All stu dents with 12 to 14 semester hours of 4 00 grade points are asked to join; also a student may have a G.P.R. of 3 80 for 15 to 29 hours; 3.60 for 30 to 59 hours; 3.40 for 60 to 89 hours or 3.25 for 90 to 120 hours. Dr. Krivanek feels that such an organization is necessary to encourage the scholar to be a leader in the university community as well as our demo cratic society. Mrs. Krivanek has interviewed local students for Swarthmore college which is very selective in its admissions The honors program for juniors and seniors is outstanding. She has been active in the League of Women Voters Many years ago Dr. Krivanek had ambitions for a music degree. Al though he went on to win honors in another field, he has retained this interest. He has played in the University Community Orchestra for sev eral years and this year he started playing the violin in the Tampa Philharmonic. Prof. Jerome 0.

Box 10475 Phone 838-1731 I Wanted: Student over 21 to Sell Part-Time I ; J Starts Classes The Inquiry Forums Sacred Heart Catholic Church, at the corner of Twiggs and Marion, in downtown Tampa, plans to start a series of 24 inform al lectures on the Catholic faith The purpose of the lectures is to g ive to interested persons an opportunity to learn the credentials, the doctrinal holdings, the ethical and moral teachings and the de votional practices of the Catholic: Church. The lectures are principal ly directed to non-Catholics who are interested, even if only from an academic point of view, in learning what the Catliolic Church is and what it teaches. Attendance by non-Catholics does not constitute any commitment to join the Cat_ holic Church. These lectures will be of particu lar interest to non-Catholics con templating marriage to a Catholic. Those persons will acquire a clear er understanding of the religious beliefs and practices of their future life-partners Statistics on past series of lec tures, called Inquiry Forums, show that more than half of those attending the Forum were not Catholics This reporter has been assured that the predominate note of the lectures will be respect for the re ligious opinions of others. We were told that the opportunity to ask questions and to propose diffi culties wi]J be amply given, and that private conferences can be arranged. The meetings will be held on Monday and Thursday evenings, from 8 to 9 p.m., starting Monday, January 17, and ending Thursday, April 4. The meeting place is the Catholic Information Center, at Twiggs and Marion. Theological Seminar At the same time, the Sacred Heart Church is also sponsoring a series of informal lecture-discussions for adults. Sweeping changes are taking place within the Church,. and even greater ones are in prospect. This Theological Seminar is for the per ceptive layman who seeks the theo logical basis for a more profound sense of the Church's mission to, and dialogue with, the world. The Seminar is principally di rected to Catholic adufts who are interested i n discovering the strength and enthusiasm that their faith can and will provide. Non Catholics are most certainly warmly invited to attend. This course will involve discus sions on modern religious problems. Topics will include: Vatican Coun cil 11, Religious Freedom, Church and State, Unity of Christians and Non-Christians, Birth Control and Contraception. No fee is charged [or attending the Theology Seminar. The Theology Seminar will meet Tuesday evenings, from 8 to 9 p.m., beginning January 25, at the Cath olic Information Center UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA FOUNDATION (Continued from Page 1) Five Directors, which has had full authority and power granted to boards of directors of corporations under the laws of the State of Florida The Board of Directors has consisted of at least twelve Directors and the number of Directors may be increased by the membership of the Foundation.

-January, 1966 John K. Harper John K. Harper Plans Career In Psychology John K. Harper, new Student Association President, looks back to his senior year in high school as the turning point in his educational planning. He received much of his inspiration from his home room teacher. This teacher was al ways seeking to help others understand themselves better. He would openly seek to help the students. His use of psychology in approaching others to help them made a lasting impression on John Harper. John has since decided that h e wants to be a clinical psychologist. John h as always been interested in extra curricular activities. He was active in the National Foren sics League and took part in ora torical contests while in hi g h school at Jesuit in Tampa. He held a part time job with Armour and Co. from his senior year in hig h school till the beginning of his junior year at USF. Student government attracted John when he was a sophomore and he was elected representativ e to the student legislature He pledged ENOTAS fr aternity while a s ophomore and took an active interest in the organization He worked for Dr. David Long in the psychology department, putting in several hours a week in setting up experiments for psychology classes. John is also interested in history and political science and at one time during his freshman year he might plan to go into law as a career. Psychology prevailed as his major in spite of this interest.

Page Eight T'ai-Chi Ch'uan -(Grand Ultimate Boxing) by B A. Fusaro T'ai-chi-Ch'uan is an ancie n t exercise that develops har monious functioning of the body and sereni t y of the mind, thus promot ing health and longevity. It wou l d seem to be a desirable exercise for jumpy, c ompulsi ve Americans wit h their tendency to degenerate disease in the middle age The origins of T'ai-chi are obscure, but its practice has usually been associated with Taoism. R. W Smith, student, writer and historian of the Martial Arts, favors the view that T-ai-chi was developed in essent i ally its present form by Wang Chung-yueh (c. 1750) of Shansi Province. The modern practice of this physical culture is mainly via the five minute Cheng Solo Exercise, consisting of 37 component postures which is done on awakening and just before retiring. The Solo Exercise st resses slow smooth, rythmical and relaxed move ments, abdominal breathing, and the inducement of a vigorous circu l ation. This latter blood flow represents an important aspect of ch'i (Jap.: ki), a concep t that figures prominently in the principles and prac ti c e of T'ai-chi. Likewise the abnomina l breathing, coupled with the notion of a relaxed sin king and placing one's self so to speak, in the region o f the tan tien (Jap.: saika tand en), are important aspects of ch'i; the center of this region seems to coincide with the center of gravity of one's body as determined in a standing, upright position Ch'i is translated as intrinsic ene1gy (although the J apanese rendering lu of the same c haracter is often translated as s pirit, ai1 or breath.) T'aichi can be classified as a martial art in which the emphasis is on its physical culture aspects, just as Judo i s a martial art with (overwhelm ing) emphasis on its sport aspects. Karate adepts will recognize the Solo Exercise as a kata (Eng.: form) with many postures simi lar to the ones in their own katas. However, their own hard, intense katas might sug gest that there is little relation between the soft relaxed cal i sthenics of T'ai-chi and selfdefense qr act u a l fighting. The leading T'ai-chi master outside of mainland China is Cheng Man ching (1901) painter, calligrapher, academician and poet, and now in New York City. The author recently had the privilege of meetmg Master Cheng and of doing "pushing-hands," a two-man exercise in which partners t ry to push each other off balance, (somewhat like Ran dori in Judo), convincing him of the effectiveness of T-aich i and of the simpl y immense energy assoc iated wit h a developed chi'. A fighter who had the termerity tb challenge Cheng would be quickly likewise convinced but if he persisted in his efforts, then he might be carried from the spot. The author' s reading and experience lead him to accept Smith's descriptive statement of the fate of a long list of past chal l engers: "No one could stand against Cheng." Les t there be some mis understanding, it must stated that Cheng v iews his art as means of prolonging life, and no, t endangering it, and will resort to strong methods only if a scoffing challenger persists after several preliminary trials (such as pushing-hands) Although someone in marginal health will feel the benefits of T'ai-chi practice within a few months if a round of the exercise is clone a coupl e of times_ morning and evening, it takes longer to program the Solo Exerc tse mto self-defense appl ications. T-ai-chi is not recom mended for someone wh o seeks an effective self-defense in return for a one or two years of training; however after four or five years prcatice the startling powers of T'ai-chi become apparent with the development of the ch'i, a concommitant of the regular, d ai l y rounds. Suggested reading in this field are the fo llo wing books and article: "T'ai-ch i Ch'uan" 1961 by Cheng Man ch'ing; "T'ai-chi Ch-uan" 1966 by Cheng Man-ch -in g and R W. Smith; "The Fighting Arts: Essentials of T'aichi Ch'uan by R. W. Smith in the December 196 4 Strength and Health Magazine. (Dr B A. Fusaro is a member of the USF Mathematics department and studied th e T'ai-chi Ch'uan form under Mr. R. W. Smith himself a student of Master Cheng. A group will meet on the south side of the Math-Physics building to learn the form every Friday at 2 : 00 There are no membership rites or fees.)

Senior Class President decide on a career in law and politics? "If you go way back to the sixt h grade," states Bob, "1 can remember some assignments my teacher gave me. She inspired me to write poetry Bob classes this event a s one of the most important things that. ever happened to him. He began to take a serious interest in En glish and especially poetry His high schoo l English teacher Mrs E leanor Blalock revived his interest in poetry and encouraged him to enter a poetry contest. Bob won the contest! He received the $10 first prize and his piece was pub lished in the Tribune. At the time Bob was impressed at the "good taste" of the Tribune to publish poetry. (Eel. note: Brahman too is printing the poem at t h e end of this article ) The inspiration from these teachers of Engli sh has been an im portant factor in his decision to g o into l aw Bob had to overcome some ob stacles along the way. Like many parents, Bob's mother had her own idea about what Bob should do. She persuaded Bob that what he really wanted was a career in den tistry because a relative had made a ''mint of money" from this pro fession. Bob compromised and de cided to plan for medicine by tak ing a pre-med curriculum. This included chemistry, zoology and the kind of courses which made his CPR spiral downward. He entered his junior year with a more real istic view of things and renewed his interest in English making it his major. The influence of his earlier teachers had won out in the long run. It might be added that his girl friend, exerted a steadying in, fluence too. Bob passed h ig h of the Law Schoo l Aptitude Test and now plans to enter the University of Florida Law School in Sep tember 1 966. After l aw s chool Bob plans a stint in the U. S. Navy to get experience in maritime l aw and he then plans to return home to enter l oca l politics Bob has a l ways been a believer in extra-curricular activ ities. Jn Robinson High Schoo l he was a letterman in track and footba ll He has worked part time for Publix Super Markets since he was a sop h omore in high school. He will not leave Ehi s job until he graduates from USF this April. He has saved a ll the money earned from th i s job for l aw schoo l expenses. During his freshman year at U S .F. he became interested in stu dent government and held the post of SA representative at large. He was shortl y -thereafter elected to the student senate, a n office which he has held two years. He was also elected Senior Class President. With these responsibilities, a part time job and his st udies to occupy his time, Bob has been almost too busy to participate in his hobb' ies which include to u c h football, swim ming, softba ll recreational reading and watching good television pro grams. When asked to offer advice to en. tering freshmen students, Bob says "Get a libera l edu cation, shift THE GUID E The night was co l d and the darkness surrounded me like a vise, The wind roared down across the land to chill a ll wit! \ its hands of ice I am a l one, The tree s with l e d less branches stood dark and gaunt they made the wood, 1 am a l one. Upon the ground were strewn the l eaves reminder of a summer breeze that blew across the hills with ease where b l ows now the breeze ? .I am alone. The clouds above twist and turn their icy cargo stings my face with nettles born in skies above, I am alone Across the yonder hills I see a star that from the clouds peeps, l am alone. The star to me becomes a guide its light I follow. far and wide, across the icy wilderness we go over the hills and through the snow, I am alone. The trees and snow they slow my speed but they can't slow my burning need for warmth and love and sympathy, I am alone A light calls forth across the night it is my home, the star was right the light speaks out and says to me bless God in heaven for that star you see it was a beacon sent by Him who now in heaven watches you, was never alone. -Bob Blunt KINGCOME'S TRIMMINGS -SEWING AND MILLINERY SUPPLIES CUSTOM DRAPERIES AND SLIPCOVERS Florida Avenue and Fowler Phone 935-8168 f-.. -.. sE:AscoP"E:-oF-N"oliTII.TA"i1Pi"-_ .. .. _l I< DIVER'S AIR STATION < "We Sell and Service Diving Equipm!Bnt" I t Authorized Soles of Docor Diving Equipment Also Outboard Jet Motors 7400 NEBRASKA AVE.
