We're out of the debating business, an opportunity USF no longer affords," Partney said PARTNEY said he conferred with Dr. James Dickinson, assistant vice president for Academic Affairs two weeks ago Photo by Chris Malone and was told team funds were no longer available. "Was I to inform the students the program was discontinued?" Partney said he asked Dickinson Dickinson said 'yes,' Partney said "That's incorrect," Dickinson said last night. "If he (Partney) meant the entire debate team was eradicated with ho possibility for existence next year. "I INTERPRETED 'program' to mean the events scheduled for Qtrs 2 and 3. In that context the answer is yes because there is no more money," Dickinson said. "I just don't understand it," Partney said "Halfway through the season and we've been discontinued Bruce Green, Forensics vice president, said, "We checked out every possibility for funds, but nothing turned up." "Dr. Partney bought a $5,500 van out of his own pocket for our transportation," Green said. That s not required of any department head." PARTNEY expressed doubt for next year' s program because of the present situation.' I'm not too encouraged," Partney said "We lost some students from last year because the budget was so cut which was made known in midsummer.

\ 4 -THE ORACLE February 7, 1974 Commentary Students encourage theater changes Editor: Change provokes applause and resistance. Monday, the Oracle printed an article about dissatisfaction within the Theater Department as expressed by unidentified students and faculty. We would like to applaud WE ARE encouraged by the flexibility of the program being offered to us We also enjoy individual attention from our instructors, although it sometimes takes a fleet foot to catch them There has never been cause for us to withhold complaints for fear of reprisal and we have complained loudly. Our problems have been solved, explained, or pigeonholed (depending on the degree of their foolishness). Neither do we anticipate accolades for defending the system. The Administration ha: provided channels for change. Students do not have to stop anyone in the halls to voice problems, they can question their four student representatives. These representatives are allowed to attend faculty meetings and are encouraged to contribute to the discussions. There are also two voting student representatives on the Faculty Advisory Committee. IT WAS reported there has been a loss of some upper-level theater students because of discontent with theater policies. There have also been losses in the ranks of the lower-level -students, allegedly for the same reason. But that is not an indication these policies should be scrapped. There are many students remaining because of these very same policies It is impossible to please everyone We suggest those people who are dissatisfied open their minds and open their mouths. They owe it to themselves and to the rest of the theater com munity to vent their frustrations, work ORACLE ACP All-American since 1967 SOX Mark of Excellence ANP A Pacemaker Award 1967, 1969 Editor ..........

Last quarter I had the misfortune to take a course in which the professor did not give his first exam until several days after the drop date. Needless to say, by the time the class received the results of this exam, it was too late for those who were dissatisfied with their grade to drop the course I decided to petition the Academic Standards Committee an d they allowed me to drop the course without penalty. I have thought many times about this situation and have discussed it with my friends. I have concluded USF's academic policy should be revised to include new rules which would give students greater freedom to drop courses. SPECIFICALLY, l propose: 1. Professors should be required to administer tests so students can see the results before or on the drop date, or; 2 The drop period itself should be extended up to but not including the last week of school. (This measure is in effect at some colleges.) I feel the adoption of either of these measures would be a big step forward for increasing fairness for USF students. TimBrand 2POL Students need sensitivity, too Editor: In reference to your Jan. 29 article, "Sensitivity Good for Relations," it is my observation while the police are willing to undergo such a program, I know of no parallel or similar program designed for students. But then I may be mistaken, and, if such a program does exist, don't print this.

If he has been quoted correctly. lw is putting the em phasis solely on age. He seems to be completely ignoring the issue of how producti\ e an older PhD is. the quality of an older Phl)'s teaching and the reception of his books and publications both lwn and abroad. l :\l\l struck by such reversals of educational and professional traditions since some of the best contributions to our Western intellectual and cultural 1-leritage have come from distinguished thinkers in their later years. As an older PhD. I am personally sensitive to Dr. Binford's attitude since I publish extensively every year and serve as editor on a dozen professional journals. Since much of that work is publicly well -received -and is documented in books and jour nals the implementation of Dr. Binford's attitude would be tantamount to ignoring such scholarship and assuring only the information on my birth certificate should determine the treatment to be accorded me. There are several older PhD's on campus who are still productive scholars and journal editors and are, in some c ases, Henry Winthrop .. sees value in older Ph-D's more productive than younger men 50 years old or less. Should such currently productive scholars be put out lo pasture because of their age? Is a younger person who is un productive more desirable simply because he or she is younger? A NllMBEH of campus "leaders" would not hesitate to e ncour a ge older PhD's to retire, particularly the more productive ones These same "leaders," who have done lillle or nothing to advance learning in any field, would advocate only the un productive older PhD's _remain on There are other categories of faculty members who are less productive than some older PhD's who can show a record of solid achievement. There are somt' younger faculty members who are completely un productive And there are some unproductive faculty members who need a job far less than some of our productive older PhD's lwcausl' these unproductive should already receive current intonw !not interest on savings) from om or more sources than tlwir USF positions. l thtn fore suggest if Dr. Binford is to lead a movement to gel rid of "txpendable" faculty, lw recognize achievement as a mueh better means of discrimination than chronological age.

THE ORACLE-February 7, 1974 7 Energy program proposes curfew BY WAYNE SPRAGL'E Oracle Staff Writer A curfew on all recreational and other activities will be im posed at USF as part of an energy conservation program, University officials said yesterday; The curfew will take effect at 11 p m. Sunday through Thursday and at midnight Friday and Saturday. VICE PRESIDENT for Student Affairs Joe Howell said last night the curfew will affect hours movies may be shown on campus as well as where recreational lights may be used. Howell said he did not yet know when the curfew would be in stituted "We'll see What contractual obligations we have and work out of them," he said. The curfew was one of many policies included in the USF energy report compiled by Vice president for Administr ation Ken Thompson. THOMPSON gathered information and recommendations from Student Affairs, Academic Affairs, and Finance and Planning as well as his own area. Thompson said reports indicate there was "no gross waste" on campus. According to the report all aesthetic lighting has been discontinued on campus use of electrical machinery has been minimalized. "THF. COLLEGES are ter minating non-essential evening activities as early as possible," the report states. In addition, cleaning crews have altered their schedules so only one floor is cleaned at a time, allowing lights in other areas to be extinguished. Maintenance vehicles are. allowed a maximum of five gallons per fill to save gasoline, the 'report states. The report recommended against a four-day week but suggested some departments or colleges might adopt dffferent work weeks to reduce epergy requirements. The College of Engineering has indicated it may experimentally adopt a four-day week during Qtr. 3. THE REPORT also indicated an emergency contingency plan is being developed in case of interruptions of USF's gas supply. Thompson said the plan will try to "identify the more drastic types of actions we could take that would not cause serious damage of loss to University facilities in. the event of curtailed energy supplies Thompson said as new in formation is received and new conservation policies are developed he will update the program.

8-THE ORACLE February 7, 1974 Sailors make do, less recognition BY :\llKE K,\SZl"H:\ Oracle Sports Editor In one of last summer's issues of Sporting News. columnist Joe Falls said the last time he had written a sailing article was during the summer of 1967-six years ago Counting this story then it's Falls 2, Kaszuba 1, -a total of three stories in six years and a pretty accurate indicatiori of the way sailing has taken back seat to the spectator sports. Flying Junior owned by USF But. recorded history for USF's Windjammers sailing club despite minimal recognition does date back to 1958. m a king it "the oldest club on campus." according to club publicist R andy Wells. Though the club doesn t have any sail boats quite as elaborate as the one on the right it has nevertheless. swollen its membership to 40 with an ar mada of less than a half-dozen 'sunfish anJ flying junior type' boats "Our main events are what are known as regattas," Wells said. They're run on a triangular course with both an A and B team ... the boats have a twoman crew-..:.that is a skipper and his mate." Wells said the regattas are usually held every weekend or every other weekend. Curiously enough, Wells said, a lot of women make good skippers "though only from one-third up to orie-half of the club are women. It takes quite a while to get to know the ins and outs of sailing." The club, which charges five dollars per quarter for what Wells called "maintenance and transportation," practices mostly on Lake Thonotasassa. However Wells said lakes are not ideal for sailing because "the trees block out the wind and provides for more erratic sailing. Bays and gulfs have steadier winds although U1ey can get gusty at times." Golfers ready after delays BY PAM JONES Oracle Sports Writer After having their first two scheduled matches of the season C!lncelled, the USF gold team will get underway at Rollins College on Feb 15. Pat Lindsay record-setter Coach Bob Shiver expressed pleasure with the way the team has progressed so far in practice: "Everyone has been playing real well since they came back from Christmas Shiver said CURRENTLY, Shiver is holding qualifying matches for the number five and six spots to go to the Rollins match. The top four players, Pat Lindsey, Ian Davidson, Tom Bracke and Lou Cyrulik, automatically qualify for the match Among those in contention for the two remaining spots are Alan Fadel Tom Liens, Eric Nelson David Hartz, Rick Vershure and Glenn Salwak. According to Shiver "Four qualifying rounds are being held this week, with the two low scorers going to Rollins." The same six players who qualify for the Rollins match will travel to Tallahassee next month for the Seminole Invitational Tournament. Other qualifyin_g rounds will be held for the Embry Riddle and Florida Southern matches later this month however. ONE MEMBER of the team Mike Eggling, has been ill. As a result, Eggling has had to with draw from school. "We're not sure right now," said Shiver, but Mike might be pack by Qtr. 3." The first match the team had scheduled for this year was t he Placid Lakes Southern In tercollegiate, which was can celled because many of the teams expected to compete could not come.

THE 21-YEAR old physical education major, said he "had talked to the Falcons and Cowboys." "The Cowboys are always looking for basketball players for their agility and quickness I think Cornell Green was a basketball player and they made him into a defensive back," Jones said.

THE O\'ERPRICl:\G was discovered when a student in William Brady's Program class wrote the publisher to determine the retail and prices of the text which contains 269 numbered pages. Beside Textbook Center error, two other reasons for the high cost were suggested in the let ter : the book was expensive to print due to the use of recycled paper, or the authors were get ting an extremely high per copy royalty In replying to the student's lefter, Hayden said, "You most certainly should be concerned about the price The current suggested textbook price for "Modern Radio Station Prac tices" is $8.50. Until recently though, the price was $7.95 and I believe that was the price at which your bookstore was billed, less our usual 20 per cent discount for college bookstores In contrast, another textbook in the same field, also published by Wadsworth and used at USF, is "Television Production Hand book" which contains 541 pages and was sold by the Center for $9. 95 Both books are hardback Student complaints to the Textbook Center concerning the .high cost 'of the book at the beginning of the quarter were ifoswered with a verbal .statement the Center does not set the prices of the books, the publi.5hers do. Brady, class in structor, said a:t the first class meeting had he known the price was $15, he would not have chosen it as the text.
