The proposal, tables by the Commission on Dec. 11, has met with enthusiastic response from USF administrators and faculty members. Related story on page 16 USF PRES. CECIL MACKEY has endorsed the proposal in a letter dated Dec. 11 to the county government. The letter said, "We at USF are enthusiastic at the prospect of developing such a program and hope that the stigating noise complaints will carry sound meters. So: if you dl'tect uniformed men carrying small boxes in your dampen the music, quiet the party, or just stop -nt lt>ast until they go away. Q\ -/\ I k' t.:l;;A li? l < THE COLLEGE of Engineering will be "con centrating on the impact of changing technology," Dean Ed Kopp said. Faculty are also discussing private funding and reviewing "ways to get more," he said. "We are attempting to see if we could collapse Friday classes," Kopp said. "I think for Qtr. 3 we can collapse this thing and truly have a four-day week in engineering with the day starting at 7:30 a.m. and last until 10:30 'p.m." BUSINESS AD-MINISTRATION Dean Howard Dye said it was "a bit too early to tell" what changes may occur in his college. He said college faculty are now making suggestions for possible college reorganization. "We will attempt to decide what clients we 1 would serve," Dye said. "We neep to have a re examination of our programs because things change so fast." Dye said he had heard discussions of a possible merger of the colleges of Fine Arts, Continued on page 15

An announcement from the Division of Procurement published in Intercom Dec. 7 reads, "The Cut Paper situation still deteriorates, and we are led to believe shortages on some items may continue for as long as seven years." Robinson files claim for Rice in suit BY SANDRA WRIGHT Managing Editor University General Counsel Larry Robinson last week filed a counterclaim as part of a lawsuit on behalf of Language Li terature Dean Philip Rice which Rice said yesterday he was not notified of and was not sure he approved. "I really didn't know he was going to do it," Rice said. "I have -the idea it's not something I'd like to do." THE answer and countercharge to an assault and battery suit against Rice by former student George MartinTrigona, called for Rice to receive "damages" but did not name a specific sum. The complaint alleged MartinTrigona "wilfully, wantonly and malkously committed an assault. on" Rice which caused him to be injured. Rice declined to confirm or refute the charges. "I am not going to answer that," Rice said. "I'd have him all over my neck." MARTIN-TRIGONA'S $50,000 lawsuit alleges Rice assaulted and battered him about the office last January when he went to the dean's office with an academic grievance. The counterclaim Robinson filed in circuit court last Wednesday claims Rice was the victim of an assault by Martin-Trigona. "Actually, it is one of the most likely things to happen in a case like this," Robinson said. He said the issue of "who started the thing" was a key issue in assault cases. "If you can f)rove the other person started it, then you have a case," Robinson said. ALTHOUGHthe complaint did not request a specific sum in damages "if we're asked to we will," Robinson said. However, Rice said he will discuss the matter with Robinson before further action is taken. "I honestly didn't know he (Robinson) was going to do it," Rice said. "He thought I had seen it in the mail but I hadn't. I just thought it was an office copy (of a deposition) and filed it away."

Butler. dirl'clor of lhl' llSF' PhysiGal Plant. Butler said last month he for sees no problems in getting future supplies of natural gas and electricity. USF's main energy sources. USF has had only one minor problem recently In getting enough natural gas from its supplier, Butler said. A technical problem forced Peoples Gas Company to stop delivery and Physical Plant had to switch over to its reserve power source. bunker-C fuel oil. The Switch lasted under 24 hours and less than 6,000 gallons of USF's 50.00ll gallon reserve were used. Bunker-C fuel oil is a highly polluting fuel and is used only in emergencies. "FOR THE LAST three years we have actually decreased our use of natural gas," Butler said. He cited increased efficiency and improved preventive main tenance of power plant equipment as reasons for the decrease. During the fiscal year 1969-70 (July 1 to June 30) USF consumed 'approximately 6,003,000 therms of natural gas, he said. During the fiscal year 1972-73 USF used only 5,478,000 therms, in spite of an increasing university population (One therm is equal to about lOD cubic feet of gas). "We do not expect to exceed last year's consumption figure" in 1973-74, Butler said. ALTHOUGH USF'S use of natural gas has decreased, the cost of obtaining it has risen sharply.he said. The average cost of gas in 1969-70 was 3.9 cents per therm, and it is now 6.25 cents per therm. USF now pays $342,000 a year for gas, an $107,000 increase over the 1969-70 cost. On campus, natural gas is used primarily to power the heating and air conditioning systems, Butler said. Water is heated or cooled, depending on the temperature, and then pumped underground to temperature control units in the various buildings, according to Bill Hickok, superintendant of utilities. THE BUILDING temperature 1s kept at an average of 75 degrees. Butler said because USF's system runs continuously year round, lowering the average ll'mpl'ratun 111 till' buildings to till in tlw winll'r and raising it in tlw summPr as rl'qutsttd by Prl'sidmt Nixon in his l'1wrgy policy stall'nwnts. would not save l'twrgy. llSF's !waling and tooling systtm cannot lw shut down l'ompletely lwcause of an acute humidity prohllm that would rl'sult.

WlllTTLING A toothpick from a once sturdy branch of student and faculty input, the Admin istration completed a massive committee reorganization. In the shuffle many .viable committees .like the. Student Finance Committee, lost not onl y office space but .also their representative decisions Other committees found that even as they formulated their advice, decisions had been made using "alte.rnative" input. "Where do you want the money, ,Dr. Mackey?" USF, which praise for high academic standards, challenging programs, and well-qualified graduates, focused attention on a second-rate basketball team which IOst eight players in the course of the year, a national testing program which gives credit for scores many schools refuse to accept, and a fund-raising drive for construction of a sculpture rated not as the artist' s best work, but rather as his fargest. The Oracle has suffered its moments of disillusionment along with the rest of the campus. But rather than decry decisions of the past year, the Ora de would concentrate on the future The Administration is entering a new year with new opportunities fo achieve the respect of the University com munity. Dr Cecil Mackey and his staff can return usF to its pedestal of scholastic excellence and can regain the trust of campus members by acting to revive the democratic and academic principles necessary for universi'ty survival. -PLANS TO DISSOLVE Academic Affairs and portion its departments to Student Affairs should be reviewed carefully The Division of University Studies (for undecided majors) and ORACLE VALERIE WICKSTROM Editor SUE THOMPSON Advertising Manager ANPA Pacemaker Award 1969 SDX Mark of Excellence 1972 SANORA WRIGHT Managing Editor ACP All-American since 1967 MIKE ARCHER News Edit.or Photo Editor .................. ........... ..

'27 l Oracle about the possible sale of Fontana Hall to USF was another of the long list of examples of the lack of regard for the welfare of USF students. Apparently both the Ad ministration and the owners of Fontana have failed to analyze the situation. The Administration seems to f P.el that Fontana can provide housing for married students. however there are many obvious reasons precluding this objective. First of all. it is obvious the rooms are .not presently suitable for occupation by families. There is. no kitchen space and the floor plans will not allow for it without drastic alteration. During the time required for these alterations. the rooms will be unavailable to anyone at all. Secondly and perhaps most importantly, where will the 800plus current residents live after the conversion? Few. if any are married, USF dormitories are already crowded. DeSoto Hall is now an old age home, and private apartments are beyond the financial re(lch of many Fontana residents, including myself. UAS THE Administration considered these points? I think nOt. What the whole thing down to is this: USF wants to buy Fontana to house married students and thereby "unhouse" twice as many current residents who will have no satisfactory housing. Even if only half of Fontana's rooms were converted. about 400 unmarried students will be ousted. Northwestern Mutual. owners of Fontana. will doubtless be overjoyed to get rid of the place; their. interest. in it is most likely solely financial. To them, the sale may be beneficial. But is it beneficial to USF or the BOO USF students residing at Fontana Hall? Will a trade-off of gaining housing for possibly 400-odd married students versus losing housing for twice as many single students be advantageous? These BICYCLE SALES AND REPAIRS are the questions I can only hope the Administration will consider carefully before making a dtcision. I hope it will not follow its quasi-official policy of ignoring students. as evidenced by the cutting of'the URR and the attl'mpts to nmove both the Oracle and the Student Heaith St>rvict> from the campus.

The film presented by the Student Entertainment. and Activities Committee as the first film in this quarter' s Tuesday Night Special series, is devoid of plotline, unlike the group's other films: "Help!", "Yellow Submarine," and "A Hard Day's Night." "Let It Be trudges along making a major disappointment of what turned out to be the Beatles' farewell film. THE FILM IS a form of cinema verite production of a typical Beatles recording session, as they are preparing for a new album In this case, it seems that the film is one long, boring, tedious commercial plugging the "Let It Be" soundtrack album. This would seem unecessary, con sidering all Beatles albums sell well but calling the "Let It Be" album a soundtrack enabled them to charge more for the record, thus reaping more profits into the pockets of John, Paul.

I think it's better this way. I'd hate to drop the boys at this late date." Wright said he left USF for public school administration because, "I feit like I wanted to rriake a change. I hadn't planned to do anything in the middle of the yea r but it was such an excellent opportunity, I was afraid not to take it." Faced with a 42-game schedule beginning in March, Wright conducted his first day of yesterday. Because of his duties at Greco, Wright said he will be half-an hour late for the 3: 30 p.m. praciices but explained that assistant coach Jeff Davis will be on hand befor e his arrival.

But he and other officials emphasized all alternatives are being considered and the formal recommendations will be presented in March.

He said he would like a school of communications, possibly combining speech, m ass communications, and -theatre established within the Arts and Letters college "What we need is better organization," Rice said. "We need a better way of bringing students in Dr. Donald Saff dean of Fine Arts said he had "very positive feelings toward the planning process.

"It has been d iscussed and has been considered for a long t ime." Saff and Rice said there is a possibility of USF establishing a cinema program which would incorporate artisti c cinematography and documentary film. Such suggestions, like others, are under review, Rice said. Acting Social Science Dean Travis Northcutt said his college is preparing a list of outside funding sources currently used. He said department chairmen and faculty were working on reorganization suggestions. "There is probably as much inter-college cooperation in volved in this as I have ever seen in a university," Northcutt said. "How long it will last I don't know.'"

So begins Wisconsin lawyer Edward Ben Elson's theory of ''Inter-galactic Spaceship 'salvation," an imaginative scenario involving Kohoutek, 144,000 miniaturized humans one black angel, an astro-escalator, and a world-wide petroleum flood ELSON SAID FRIDAY from his home in MacFarland, Wis. he had expected the world to drown in a sea of oil Christmas day, with Kohoutek hovering above his roof ready to load a cargo of miniature humans for a voyage to "what I assumed would be a heavenly place Elson said Kohoutek was scheduled to drop an astroescalator to his roof to transport himself and the little people from Earth to another world.United Press International reported Elson' s "little people" last month. IN AN EARLIER visit from a "block womanly angel with a serene smile" Elson said he was warned of Earth's coming. destruction and told to wait on his roof Christmas Eve. Elson said the angel materialized when he was sailing a banana-shaped boat on unknown seas te s ting his theory of composition of the Universe. He said he beli e ves Earth is emersed in a "membrane floating freely within a liquid sea of light. "Anyway," Wison said "there I was waiting on the roof and I didn't see any oil. I began to get suspicious. but then discovered that pn the Gregorian calendar Christmas isn't until Jan. 7 Elson said the destruction of Earth will be accomplished when Kohoutek swerves near the planet Venus this week causing it to drop out of it's regular orbit and wreak havoc on Earth, pulling petroleum reserves out of the ground and spilling them over the globe "I've long been in favor of intuition over intellect he said. Elson could not be contacted by press time last night, but rumor has it he's been waiting on his roof since yesterday LESS INTUITIVE astronomers are disappointed with what was only weeks ago dubbed the "Comet of the Cen tury." "It's a flop," Astronomy Department Chairman Dr. .Heinrich K Eichhornvon Wurmb said' y esterday EiChhom said astronomers can predict the iocation of the comet "with uncanny accuracy" but Proposed museum move favored by USF leaders BY WAYNE SPRAGUE Oracle Staff Writer A proposal to move the Hillsborough County Museum of Natural History to the USF campus has met with favorable reaction from several University leaders. IN A LETTER to the Count)i Commissioners Pres. Cecil Mackey said that the Museum "could be a significant cooperative venture between the County and the University. "Our Departments of Anthropology, Astronomy and Biology are particularly in terested in joint programs," and the Colleges of Fine Arts, Language-Literature, Engineering and Education would also benefit from and contribute to the museum, he said. The work of both graduate and undergraduate. students could be of great value to the museum, Mackey said. .. Kushner said USF can provide experts to man the Museum while the Museum would not only aid the Anthropology Department but would assist USF in its mission as an urban-oriented university. He said the Museum will place special emphasis on the local area and people, which would be of great help to urban research and services. ACCORDING TO Dr. Martin M. Lagodna, assistant professor of history, the "Museum would be a worthwhile adjunct to education in history Through the study of artifa<."'l:s and interpretive displays a history museum is important for the teaching of historical un derstanding .'' Lagodna said there are students atUSF who would like to get training in museum direction and administration If the Museum becomes a reality, USF would profit by developing a museum program, he said. The program would include museum education and administration, conservation and interpretation of objects and display and documentation techniques WELCOME BACK Good Luck I 1974 "unfortunatC'ly. we cannot pndi c t how bri ght it will be BEL\l'SE E:\HTll \"IEWEHS SC'(' lC'ss than one per cent of KohoutC'k s Iola I orbit. it is dif ficult lo tC'!I whC'ther the orbit is a parabola or an C'lipse. he said Astronomy professor Dr. Haywood Smith said Kohoutek. like all comets. consists of three parts: an icy nucleus. a head or coma. and a tail.

These residents are discovering that the three-legged race at the Ai-gos Field Day isn't as easy as it looks! It requires a great deal of coordination to hop, skip, and jump together and still make it to the finish line standing up. Catch if catch can! That's the real name of the game. Fall Programming Highlights Residence Hall Activities Upon the return of the residence hall staff members on September 12, campus life 1973-74 began to come ali\'e. Bulletin boards were decorated. name tags appeared on resident students doors. and RA 's got together to discuss the excitement and anxieties of opening day in the halls. But it was the arrival of the resident students that brought the potential for real residence hall community spirit which has been developing during this past quarter through a variety of programs and activities. -The Beta Hall Marathon Football Game kicked off a lot of enthusiasm and healthy competition between the men of Beta East and West. Pledges mounted as the guys went the 32-hour limit to rafse over $350 for the Blind Student Tape Bank Fund: -The Wrist Wrestling Contest which evolved one evening became more than just a one-night event. Interest grew until a group of about ninety residents were packed into the lobby on the third night to cheer the champion wrestlers. -The Old Fashioned Field Day, sponsored by the Arg?s Program Council, was a day full of egg. tosses, three-legged races, wheelbarrow races, and tugs-of-war. Amid these fun and games, the residents of Alpha, Beta, and Gamma enjoyed gigantic ice cream cones and got acquainted with their neighbors across the mall. -The Andros and Argos Program Councils hosted the Halloween festivities where a large number of ghosts and goblins participated in the "Strange for a Day1 Pageant. "Super Dill"
