THE VOLUME 1 -NO. 3 SERVING THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY AAUW Invites Senior Women and Faculty Women To Membership Tea USr's Melida Pereira Seek Lalin riesla Cl'o The American Association of University Women cordially invites all graduating senior women and alumni as well as women fac\llty members to a tea in their honor to held on February 26 at the home of Mrs. Lee T. Stokes, 841 Sunny side Road, Temple Terrace, from 3 to 5 p.m. Greeting guests at the door will be Dr. Margaret Fisher, Dr. Lucile Foutz, Mrs. Sidney French and Dr. Maxine M:acKay. For further information contact Mrs. Robert Bradley, vice chairman of the North Tampa Study Group. Call 988-599 l. AAUW pri:i.vides a means for the univetsity graduate to keep abreast of the times, to keep intellectually stimulated, and to provide leader ship in the community The Tampa Branch is divided into five study groups that meet in private homes once a month. Monthly Saturday luncheons provide opportunities for members of all groups to and to listen to outstanding speakers. Kappa Delta Pi Donates To Fund The Tampa Alumni Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi established the Hazel Puryear Student Loan Fund this month with the presentation of' a $100 gift. President Earl Hall says the group hopes to eventually present this amount twice a year. The ,..main source of the revenue for the fund will be the sale of tickets to Lyric Theatre proi;luctions. Kap pa De .lta Pi is a1i honorary educa tional fraternity. The group debated whether to apply for the 9 to 1 federal match ing fund since certain stipulati9ns are required under the provisions of the National Defense Act Title 11. For frtstance, the group could not limit the fund to prospective teachers in Hillsborough and Pinel las counties. However, the fact that a $100 contribution will be increas ed to a $1000 scholarship outweigh ed all other considerations. The act does stipulate that in the selection of students to receive loans special consideration will be given to students with superior backgrounds who express a desire to teach in elementary or secondary schools and students whose academ ic background indicates a superior capacity or preparation in science, mathematics, engineering or a mod ern foreign language. Another desirable provision of the act is that "the loan and the in terest t!lereon of any borrower, who serves as a full time in a public elementary or secondary school shall be cancelled up to a maximum of 503 at the rate of 10% of the of the loan plus interest thereon which was unpaid on the first day of such services for each academic year of service." Mr. Earl Hall, president of the Tampa Chapter, is a principal of Cleveland Elementary School and has been active on professional ed ucational committees for many years He is a candidate for the state legislature in group 9. The current topic of the Tampa Branch is "The Woman and the 'Law." Several topics are selected each biennium after all local< branches in the country have been polled. Then branch members se lect the topic they prefer from those chosen by the national organ-A SERVICE TO MANKIND Peace Corps -How, Why, Who ization.

USF C o-ed Is Only Spanis Speaking C andidate In Contest USF Chapel Fellowship Offers Program Variety The University Chapel Fellow ship offers a varied program of wor ship, social get-togethers and study sessions. The Wesley Foundation, the Westminister Fellowship and the United Campus Christian Fel lowship cooperate to offer these activities. A Sunday morning worship serv ice is offered in UC 47 at 10:30 a.m. A youth fellowship takes place every Sunday at 6:30 p m Several study groups meet Thurs day nights 6 to 7 p.m.; the current topic is the Book of Philippians. Student groups often get to gether to attend plays, movies and other activities; they meet after wards for discussions The USF Chapel Fellowship will participate in the W orl d Day of Prayer, February 25. Many Tampa churches and te i lowships are co operating in this project James F. Keller, campus minister of the Presbyterian Chui:c;h, suggest ed that the Brahman staff students to see if .the Chapel and other religious groups are meeting their spiritual needs. We of the Brahman staff feel that such inter views will possibly reveal short comings in the programs or perhaps will emphasize the highlights of the various programs. Reverend Keller has suggested the follo ing questions: 1. Is religion meaningful to you? Why? 2.Does the church meet your needs? 3. Is the church another organiz ation that seeks to protect itself? 4. Do religious groups on cam pus benefit you in any way? If readers feel deeply about these subjects we would appreciate letters or personal calls to plan interviews The annual Latin Amei:;:kan Fi esta is under way and USF cp-ed ,.

Brahman feels particularly justified in backing Miss Pereira for Queen of the Latin Fiesta since in addition to her natural beauty she is the only girl in the contest who speafs Spanish. It is important that the !winner of the contest should speak Spanish since she will be touring in Spanish speaking countries if she wins We therefore ask the support of our readers to help Melida win.

Page Two THE BRAHMAN E D I T O R I A L Panhellenic Aids Repeal Sales Tax On College Books, Meals U! _Tbere was a time when students of Florida's colleges didn't have to pay a sales tax on meals served on campus or on textbooks. The 1963 Legislature changed all that. They added the sales tax to these items and students have been paying ever since. This Florida statute can be repealed. A simple change in the last paragraph of the statute is all that is needed. The section of the law that we feel should be repealed comes in the last sentence of 212.08, paragraph (b), which reads: "School books and food sold or served at junior colleges and other institutions of higher learning are taxable." (3% sales tax.) We have known that this part of the statute was not on the books before 1963 and fail to find a good reason for hitting student pocketbooks in this manner. Most students nee4 the money this tax is costing them. Higher tuition and higher college costs in other areas are making it diffi cult enough to get an education without taxing students on these essentials. We believe this law should be repealed and exempt college students from sales taxes on textbooks and food served on college campuses. How can this be done? We feel that interested student organizations on all of Florida's college campuses could circulate petitions to students and faculty members backing repeal of this law. During the ensuing months these petitions can be brought to the attention of sympathetic legislators and a movement started for the repeal of the law in the next legislative session. A similar law in the state of Pennsylvania was recently repealed and the 5% sales tax in that state was lifted from college textbooks. The time for action is now! Students will continue to feel the pinch of these taxes for years to come if something isn't done. The University of South Florida student body could spearhead this effort by getting petitions started in the near future Before petitions are started we hope to consult with syqipathetic legislators and follow their suggestions so an. effective campaign can be launched in behal of Florida's college students. PEACE CORPS (Continued from Page 1) Must list References A volunteer candidate must list six references on his appl'ication. The responses from these references and other or employers play a major part in selecting a v ol unteer candidate. There is no inter view before a volunteer candidate enters training. Applications should be submitted six months to a year before a per son can be available for service. The next step after the applica tion is the Peace Corps Placement Test. There is no passing score on this test and no competition. The tests only help the Peace Corps Se lection Division evaluate a candi date's abilities. If a candidate has the necessary skills, motivation, maturity, and character from the analysis, an in, vitation is issued to train for a pro ject. A candidate can accept or a -dine the invitation or ask to be invited for a later project. Studies Host Country The I 0 to 12-week session volves study of the country in which the volunteer will be serving its language, history, geoPfiphy, economy, customs, and tra'ditions. A review of American history, cul ture and institutions, and specializ ed training in each volunteer's skill area is also part of the training session Most of the training takes place in U.S colleges or universities. In diana University for instance, is a training center for Sierra Leone Africa. Orientation in the host country concludes the training program. Volunteers serve in the Middle East, Asia Latin America, and North and South Africa for about 24 to 27 months. There are no short tours of (luty, such as a summer session. Get living Allowance Volunteers are given a livin g aJ: lowance comparable to the standard of living of the people with whom they work. If a volunteer is a teach er in Bolivia, he will get an allow ance similar to the pay of a Bol ivian teacher. He will also receive an allowance for appropriate cloth ing and incidental expenses. A readjustment allowance at the rate of $75 a month for each month of service and training is also given the volunteer. All necessary transp tatio 1s provided by the Peace orps. Health Benefits Provided The U.S Public Health Service has accepted responsibility for the volunteer's health care. Besides the r:reliminary physical examinations, a volunteer gets a thorough Il}edical orientation during training and in stmctio11 in emergency first aid and basic prev entive measures needed for overseas work. In addition, al! volunteers are covered by social security and are automatically insured for $10,000 when they become members of the Pe

I I I J I I I r February, 1966 THE BRAHMAN Thin Book Game Becoming Favorite Dr. Paul R. Givens and Family The nation's capitol has taken to a new called the thin book game. To play the thin book game you take a public figure and make up a title for a book he is supposed to have written. By using a little imagination you can come up with a dandy. For example, "A Thou sand Ways To Be Popular and Win Friends" by Vice President Hubert Humphrey. Or, "How To Fight The Small War" by Presi dent Lyndon B. Johnson. Then there's the best seller, "French Cui sine Made Easy" by Lady Bird Johnson. A favorite in New York City is "Understanding the Labor Union" by John V Lindsay, Mayor. There are a few imported thin books too For example, the late s t from behind the iron C13ftain is, "How To Retire On 250 R1.1bles a Month and Enjoy Life" by Nikita Krushchev. Also, "Israel, A C ase Study of A Good Neighbor Policy," b y Gamma! Abdel A favor it e among sports fans is "The Ben efits of Silent Meditation" by Mo hammad (Cassius Clay) Ali. Brahman Interviews Dr. Paul Givens Of University .Psychology Department Dr. Paul Givens chairman of the USF psychology department and co-author of the CB text 'Hu man Behavior," has confidence in the programmed learning t e ch nique. Altho ugh it is not useful in all instances, he believes it has def inite value in his field. He will use the technique in the new text he is writing on the psychology of ad jus h -uent." Givens claims writing a programmed book is much more difficult than prose the author cannot stray from his theme and he 1mist be precise. Dr. Givens has written many articles for professional journals. The education major might find the art i c 1 e, "Identifying and Encouraging Processes," va luable This may be' found in the Journal of Higher Education published by Ohio State University, volume 33, number 6, June 1962. He says the creative individual may seem, "unpredictable, disorderly, a multi-minded gambler with irre pressible ga ll. But closer inspection will convince us that we have de scribed a versatile courageous per son who dares to be himself." According to Dr. Gi vens; the cre ative person is curious, intelli gent, critical independent, original and spontaneous. This person will "show a pei;sistence in the develop rnent of ideas anq ... courage to reveal himself." He is "challenged rather than confused by disorder." He has the "ability to synthesize." The creative person is more likely to view himself "as a process rather than a product." He "recognizes there are many ways to view the same situation." The urge to be creative was evi dent at an early age in one mem ber of the Givens family. Today 10year-old Roel is a bowler. His inter est started at the age of 4.

The program which be gan in 1964-65 at USF gives the stu dent an opportunity for actual teaching experience in the class room. She participated voluntarily in the program and was assigned to Carrollwood Elementary School where she reported for duty three hours a day all week long for two trimesters. For this she received 30 hours of credit. For this 30 hours you work much harder than in normal on-campus classes says Nelda. There is this big difference, "It is far more interesting than classes be cause you were actually working with children. It has a lot of carry over and makes your later intern. ship program much more interesting." Nelda graduated from Hillsbor ough High School where she was ac tive in Future Teachers of Amer ica When she graduates from USF in April she will be certified for teaching in Florida. She can also qualify for overseas teaching posi tions : She plans to teacb overseas as soon as her husband, who has a degree in accounting from USF, re ceives a commission. He has ap plied for overseas assignment in Germany. Nelda is president of her sorority. She pledged Tri Sis in her freshman year and became president in her junior year. Her hobbies include reading, sewing, cooking, horseback riding, sports cars (Porsche) and people. She especially enjoys meet ing and talking with people. In the course of the intervi ew with Nelda many topics were cov ered: religion politics, travel, trends in education and college life. Here are some of her views on life for interested students : "There can be no worse fate to befall any im: lividual, than for an individual to lose his own identity. True, all of us do imitate to a certain extent basic socially accept able modes of behavior, peculiar to our own vocation, etc. This is neces sary if we are to exist and/or thrive within our culture. However, this does not mean that it is wise or at all profitable to one; s family, friends, others or even to oneself, to let a mask take the place of or form over your own personality. "If you deceive others, you will eventually find that in the long run, you are deceiving yourself too! Above all else, for a person to be a true individual, in a sea of faceless and nameless persons be they on a campus or in a community -he must to his own self be true. This is, to me, a key to success and per sonal happiness on campus and off. Remember, there is no one at all that can be you, and this is what makes our country and world such an exciting place to live." --I BONNEVILLE 120 World's Fastest Stock Road Type Motorcycle and SUZUKI See them at: I I I CAHILL'S It 3407 BAY TO BAY BLVD.

..... : February, 1966 THE BRAHMAN Page Five Karen O'Grady Plans Career In Studen t Personnel Work Sports Clubs Combine Efforts To Seek New Members If you want to know how student organizations function, ask Karen O'Grady. She has a wealth of in formation stemming from a rich background in many USF student organizations. Early course work found Karen headed for a major in psychology. She was interested first in the psychology of advertis ing and then in industrial psychol ogy. As a junior Karen had com pleted the psychology major and began a major in sociology. Her in terest in sociology was stimulated one summer when she worked with the Hillsborough County Guidance Center. Her observations in this job made it clear to her that soci ology would be of value to her in the future. Karen plans to work for awhile and then start on a masters program. The turning point of her col lege career was the point at which she joined a sorority. She was a commuter at first, and then as a second trimester freshman she pledged Paideia and became active in the group. It was about this time that she became interested in the Council of Fraternal Societies (CFS). She became representative to this group in her sophomore year. By March of her sophomore year she was elected vice president of CFS. With this new office she be came automarica lly a member of the executive board of the Student Association. At this point in our interview it was becoming clear why Karen had such a strong interest in student personnel work. It seems she has been living this kind of work for the past three years. She was then elected to serve in student government as a representa tive. By this time the Pan Hellenic Council had evolved from CFS and she was elected first vice president of the group. Her sorority, Paideia by now had recognized Karen's leadership ability and elected her president in the first trimester of her senior year. Karen was a student government representative until her junior year when she became clerk of the leg islature. At this time she was also under-secretary of the Southern Universities Student Government AssociJi.tion.

The sports clubs' exhibition, held this month, in front of the teach, ing auditorium, was a combination of effort on the part of most of the sports clubs on campus. The co ordinator for all of the clubs, Sam W. Prather, Assistant Professor of Physical Education, tells us that these exhibitions are held once ev ery trimester. Each club puts on a display that gives visual evidence of what the club is and what it does. The informal affair included representatives from the Barbend ers, (USF's weight lifting club), who had Mr. Florida, pictured above, on hand to display his strength; the Sailing Club, with a sail boat; the judo and Karate clubs with their robed and belted members and Mr. Florida lifts 3'50 lbs.

February, 1966 Meet Mr. Broer by Joe Nunes Sun sat on the windowsill and puqdled the floor, a storm rushed the length t>f the chalk tray then cowered, silent, on the brink. The door broke open and unsettled the dust cringing on the edge -Mr. Broer stood at the lectern. Above the nose, brows bristled and em braced, bits of blue sparked below the ridge and stingily the lips sug gested a smile. The thumb and in dex fingers of the right hand re leased a row of thin blue composi tion books that ro11$!d on the desk. After a pause, during which he scrutinized every face and determ ined the extent to which the pre vious assignment was pursued, he spoke. "Anyone here familiar with Wil liam Saroyran?" The blank looks said no one was. "I realize you aren't required to read anything of his, but he is a great writer. I suggest you do." For his doctor's thesis Mr. Broer is attempting the first major critical work on the writings and life of Saroyran. His master's thesis is an attempt to interpret the meaning of the man' s death in light of Hem ingway's works. These two literary figures probably had the greatest influence on Mr. Broer's life and choice of profession. Mr. Broer's major fields of inter est are creative writing, teaching and literature. Already, he has had a play an enacted by Bciling-Gteen State University in Ohio, and even now is having an artide on Hemingway considered for pub lication. His master's thesis was published by the University of Kentucky. Though it appears our teacher has no time, he manages, somehow to be an aspiring athlete. Tues days and Thursdays he plays ten nis Sunday is reserved for g olf. In basketball he won the scoring title in St. Petersburg's Men's City League. After graduating from high s chool, he attended St. Petersburg Junior College where he was on the all star teams in volleyball, football, and basketball. From there he ob tained his B.A. at Florida State, where he taught for several years on a fellowship. Here he met Mrs Broer who was teaching under similar circum stances, and sharing his office with him. She is a poet published in a number of college magazines and presently teaching English at the exte nsion o J St. Petersburg Junior College in Clearwater. Their family consists of five cats and a pond full of fish. Jim Wallace P rof. Inspires Jim Wallace It was a Professor Simmons at Daytona Beach Junior College that inspired Jim Wallace, USF senior, to choose a career in psychology. Jim took g hours of psychology at Daytona Beach Junior College be fore coming to the University of South Florida. Jim tells of the many films and tapes that were used in his corses in psychology which helped him to get a better understanding of the subject He also tells of. the opportunity he had for direct observation in the Psy chiatric Division of Halifax Hos pita l in Daytona Beach His mother was a nurse in this hospital and shared her experiences and ob servations with Jim. After graduation in. April Jim plans a six month tour of Europe with Bill Gaunt and Don Skinner before applying for Officer Candi d a te School and a commission in the Navy. When asked to offer advice to college students, Jim answered "Many students have a social life in college but not a directed one. There is a need for direction in your college social life. Many stu d e nts do not succeed because they do not hav e a pattern to follow Thro. u g h my fraternity I have made many new contacts and learned to meet people. This has meant that I have had to work harder, but I have gotten much more out of .it than I put in The fraternity has made me much more active. School commuters miss a lot of this. A lot of younger boys get in trouble be cause they don't have to do in their spare time. They need an organization to direct them in their activities. Be active in organ izations and don't forget your pri mary responsibility is academic." THE BRAHMAN upper division Dr. Long in the Psy chology Dept. was his adviser. "Dr. Long always had time for his students," says Jim, "he would talk things over with us and gave us an excellent background and understanding of the experimental aspects of psychology." Jim is now a senior at USF and graduates in April. He is a mem ber of Talos Fraternity which he pledged when he was a junior. He is a secretary for the Interfraternity Council and has been chairman of the Greek Week Dance Committee. Recently he was nominated for senior class notable. His fraternity recently elected him an outstand ing brother. Jim states, "These honors wouldn't have come to me if I hadn't been in a fraternity and had the opportunity to meet people." FRANK REY ... (Continued from Pag e 6) the part. On the eve of the great opening, Frank was smitten. He flew home to Tampa to be with his sweetheart. As he arrived he found Betty and her mother, suitcases in hand, ready to fly to New York to visit him. The wedding followed in Tampa a few weeks later. A broa d education was always one of Frank's goals; graduation from Tampa University was the cul mination of this dream. He taught dance during those undergraduate years at Tampa U. and during the three following years when he taught in a public school. When Frank was a high school senior, his father promised him a trip to Europe. Since Frank was un able to go at the time of his gradu ation from high school, he remind ed his father a decade later when he was graduated from college. The pair traveled to 11 countries that swnmer. Frank studied with the l eading teachers of each country. Frank has choreographed three symphonic dramas: "The World Turned Upside Down" in Virginia, "Home Is The Hunter" in Ken tucky and "The Cross and the Sword in St. Augustine. He wrote, staged and choreographed "The Heartless Princess" presented re cently by the Tampa Ballet The atre. Critics called the performance a "cultural buffet" and a "tour de force One matinee wa s a benefit performance to help needy students repair their musical instruments. Frank Rey says the recent indi Student Volunteers Needed To Fight Fires The North Hillsborough Coun ty Volunteer Fire Department needs volunteers from the Univer sity of South Florida who have cars and are interested in fire-fighting in this area. The department pro tects the USF campus and sur rounding areas from fires and other emergencies. At the present time there is a shortage of volunteers for answering daytime calls The department needs volunteers who can be reached by phone when an emergency occurs The moment a fire or other emergency occurs a dispatcher will call the number furnished by the volunteer and let him know where to report. Periodic fire drills are held and techniques of fire fighting are taught. These practice drills give experience with conflagrations of various types such as burning dwell ings, brush and other fire Restaurant & Sandwich Shop Delicatessen & Bake Shop Page Seven Christmas Gift Goes Unnoticed! During trimester I the students of BZ 201 enjoyed the Dr. Betz so well that a certain grou p decided to present him with a small gift after final exams. Dr. Betz had talked frequently about a "Kreb's Cycle" during his lee tures and apparently the students thought that Dr. Betz should have some sort of cycle for himself. Fri day, December 18, the students left a small bicycle for the professor on his porch emergencies Interested students may apply for a place on the de partment by contacting Fire Chief Dick Butler or Capt.
