HISTORY, ORGANIZATION AND FUTURE
Perhaps the most important factor in the growth and reputation of a
University is its history. The history of this institution, while it should be uppermost in our minds and well known to every one of us, is probably the
least-thought-of essential in connection with the University of Florida.
From the history of this institution we may learn to appreciate what
we really have at our disposal today; how far we have progressed, and through what strife and conflict we have worked our way to the present
The State of Florida has always been interested in education, in higher
education particularly, and with this in mind has formulated many plans and many valued institutions. Little do we realize that as far back as 1824 the Legislative Council discussed plans for the foundation of a University. From "Memoirs of Florida" we may learn that in the year 1836 trustees for a proposed University were appointed, but apparently nothing
was accomplished at that time.
Upon the admission of Florida to the Union in 1845, the State was
granted nearly a hundred thousand acres of land by the General Government, the proceeds from which were to be used to establish two Seminaries, one east and one west of the Suwannee River. The effect of this was the foundation of the East Florida Seminary at Ocala in 1852, and of the West Florida Seminary at Tallahassee in 1856. The East Florida
Seminary was removed to Gainesville in 1866.
The State Constitution of 1868 contained provisions for establishing
and maintaining a University, pursuant to which the Legislature passed the next year "An Act to establish a uniform system of common schools and a University." Other attempts to establish a university were made in 1883 by the State Board of Education, and in 1885 by the Legislature.
Furthermore, the State Constitution of 1885 expressly permitted special
legislation with regard to a university.
Meanwhile, in the year 1870, the Legislature had passed "An Act to
establish the Florida Agricultural College." This not fully meeting the terms of the "Land Grant College" Act of Congress in 1862, the Legislature passed, in 1872, a supplementary act and the State received, in consequence thereof, ninety thousand acres of land from the General Government in support of the proposed college. In 1873 a site for this was selected and in 1875 another selection was made. Finally, in 1883, Lake City was chosen, and upon completion of the college, instruction was begun in the fall of 1884. In 1886 an attempt was made to have the name of this institution changed to "University of Florida," and this title was finally secured by a legislative act of 1903. Before this, in 1884, the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station had been established as one of its departments in accordance with the terms of the Hatch Act.
During these years, in addition to the three mentioned, there had come
into existence three other State institutions of higher education: the Normal School at DeFuniak Springs, the South Florida College at Bartow, and the Agricultural Institute in Osceola County. In 1905, however, inasmuch as these six institutions had failed to make satisfactory differentiation among themselves and to separate their work sufficiently from that
of the high schools of the State, and inasmuch as the cost of maintaining all seemed disproportionate to the results obtained, the Legislature passed the "Buckman Act," the effect of which was to merge the six into the Florida Yemale College" and the "University of the State of Florida." 1n 1903 and 1909 the names were changed by legislative acts to "Florida State College for Women" and "University of Florida."
During the first session of the University, a distinct normal school, which included two years of sub-freshman grades, was maintained. In addition to this, instruction was given in Agriculture and in Engineering, as well as usual collegiate branches. Candidates for admission to the Freshman class must have finished the eleventh grade of a high school. The Agricultural Experiment Station was a separate division, although members of its staff gave instruction to the students, and the President of the University acted as its Director. The next year the staff of the Experiment Station was required to devote its time exclusively to station activities, and a special director was elected. The normal school was abolished and instruction in Pedagogy was transferred to the University proper. Two years of sub-freshman work were, however, still offered.
Upon the election in 1909 of Dr. A. A. Murphree to the presidency, steps were taken to re-organize the University. The present organization dates from 1910. The College of Law was added in 1909, and the departments offering instruction mainly to normal students were organized into a college in 1912. In 1913 the present entrance requirements went into effect. The same year a Summer School was established by an Act of Legislature, and the Farmers' Institute work of the University and the co-operative demonstration work of Florida and of the United States Department of Agriculture were combined on July the first, 1915, and all the agricultural activities of the University were placed under the direction of the Dean of the College of Agriculture.
Immediately after the United States entered the world war the equipment of the Lniversity was placed at the disposal of the Government. During the summer of 1918 the College of Engineering was operated as the "University of Florida Army School" for the vocational training of soldiers. At the opening of the session of 1918-1919 all regular activities of the University were subordinated to the task of training men for the armed forces of the United States. On December fourteen, 1918, upon the mustering out of the Students' Army Training Corps, the University again took up its regular work, although it made liberal allowances in credits to students for the interruption of their studies caused by military service.
During the summer of 1919 the General Extension Division was established at the University. The school also entered into a contract with the United States Government to assist in the work of rehabilitating men disabled while in the armed forces of the country.
Thus, from the earliest period to the present time we have gradually progressed and have reached a very high degree of success.
Next we must consider the organization of this institution. There are now seven complete departments carrying on all forms of higher education, in comparison with only a few selected subjects a few years ago.

a. A curriculum leading to the B. A. degree.

In addition to the history and organization of our University, we must
include, as one of the most important, if not the highest essential, of our college organization, the Faculty, without which we could not exist. And furthermore, to keep up this existence as a recognized university among the large schools of the United States, the faculty must be of the highest degree of efficiency and of the very best possible qualifications. As a whole, they must be a proficient body of men, capable of handling and understanding students in every way; able to mix with them in athletics and society. They must each, separately and individually, be endowed with a spirit of love and loyalty for Florida, and should mingle with the scholars and discuss with them all phases of life as man to man, as well as verse the younger generation in the divers branches of higher learning.
In analyzing the faculty of this institution, we find all these characteristics, and we are indeed proud of that noble group of men who are dedicating their lives to the worthy cause of guiding the f footsteps of the f utu re
citizens in their seeking of the proper knowledge which is so essential to their success in all walks of life.
Guided by a master hand, and aided by worthy lieutenants, the deans of each college, with all professors working hand in hand with them, the University of Florida needs no better helmsmen to lead it on to the highest pinnacle of greatness in the world of Universities, than this present faculty, who have so ably opened our eyes to the opportunities abounding on every hand.
The General Faculty includes all persons, except laboratory and undergraduate assistants, engaged in the work of instruction in the University. Under the leadership of the President, it forms the governing body in all general matters of instruction and discipline. The Faculty of a College consists of those members of the General Faculty who give instruction in it. Under the leadership of its Dean, it forms the governing body of each separate College. In this General Faculty there are eleven who have attained the degree of Ph. D., and this is more than double the number on the combined faculties of all the colleges in the State. Florida also has many celebrated authorities in many branches of education, and many who are well known from the columns of "Who's Who in America." The University of Florida has much to boast in its Faculty and in the achievements which they have accomplished.
What may the University of Florida expect in the future? What have we to look forward to? Already since the re-organization in 1910 we have risen step by step to our present standard. From as far back as 1834 there has been a continued struggle to create and maintain a University in this State. Finally it was obtained and by degrees it reached what was thought a state of perfection. But in 1909 new life was put into the progress, and since that time there has been a steady growth. No longer is the University a "baby university." It is fast becoming a University of the larger class in the United States, and it must and will eventually be recognized as such. But why wait until eventually? With its ample grounds and buildings, its equipment and location, and its faculty of unsurpassed efficiency, it can be recognized speedily. How can this be done? Only by the whole-hearted, zealous work of every Florida student, graduate, and supporter. The growth of this University has come to that point where it will either continue or will cease progress and perhaps decline.
Henceforth, our University is what we ourselves make it. By our own high degree of work and scholastic standard we may accomplish untold results. By supporting the right officers for our State positions and helping place the proper men in our Legislature, we are assisting our college, putting championship athletic teams into the field, heaping fame upon the University, and making its name widely renowned.
Have we sufficient income? Perhaps not, but by work along the proper lines, the graduation of those men who see this need, eventually appropriations will be made which, in addition to the present income, will properly maintain one of the finest and largest institutions of higher learning in the United States.
Therefore, in living our lives, let us strive always in scholastic work, athletics, fraternities, societies and all intercollegiate activities, and in our capacity as citizens of Florida, and of the United States, to work for the greatest and the best of all Universities: the University of Florida.

September, 1917, saw the registration of the Class of
'21. After passing through the trying period of the first
few weeks they organized with success finally. Owing
to the fact that the United States had entered the field
against the Kaiser's forces, this class was unusually
small, numbering only ninety- eight. But in spite of this
handicap at the beginning of its areer, it has shown remarkable work and through the four years of its life at
the University of Florida, many worthy achievements
have been accomplished.
In 1918 it was soon shown that many of the class had
answered the call to arms, but those remaining served
faithfully in the Training Corps, when it was formed, and finally after the period of strife was past, a new strength was added by returning
members, and the class once again began to move to the front.
In all lines of University activity, the Class of '21 took the leading role,
and the record thus established is one of which they may be justly proud.
Especially in athletics has this class stood out pre-eminently. In its
first year, seven men were on the football squad. In the next year three men were on the varsity, and the Junior year found four holding positions.
This present year the Senior Class counted Paul Baker (Captain), Driggers, Norton, Gunn, Otto and Ford on the squad. In basketball Madison, Cox and Heuck represented the Class in fine style. Baseball also seemed a favorite with the Seniors, for the Class of '21 had Hartman (Manager 1918-1919), Hardee (Captain, 1920), Liddon, Cox, and Madison on the
Starting early in the final year, the class elected as its officers, Herbert Ford, President; Wallace A. McKey, Vice-President; Van E.
Huff, Secretary; John D. Almond, Treasurer, and McCoy Hubbard, Honor Representative. With these men leading, real things have been done, and a more notable class has never stepped across the threshold of Florida's University to enter the wide field of life.
For complete preparedness and efficiency this class is noted They have never failed to uphold the class reputation when called upon, and each individual member has faithfully endeavored to gain all possible from the opportunities afforded him; has always stood staunch and true in every crisis; and has proven himself a man, able to face life in all phases; to battle bravely, never giving up, for that which is right and just, and to uphold his high ideals and those of his class.
To the University of Florida-the only Alma Materthis class owes its everlasting debt. In entering upon its new life, and altho the members will be far apart, Florida is not to be forgotten, but will always be cherished in memory as the inspiration for Success.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
Truly this has been a remarkable class. Ever since its entrance in September, 1918, there have been things done by it that stand out prominently in the history of student activities of the last three years. It entered its University career under the S. A. T. C., and lost many of its members when it closed. There was no college atmosphere for this class to breathe. The army had a death grip on "Old Florida" and through its iron-clad regulations smothered the college spirit. However, this did not thwart the class which returned in 1919 filled with the vim of restrained vigor and prepared to work untiringly for the good of "The Orange and Blue."
During its Sophomore year the class saw the need of some regulations on the Freshmen. Securing the support of the Faculty and the upperclassmen, it drew up an excellent code of rules for the Freshmen to follow. This aided greatly in restoring 'Gator spirit to the campus.
Soon after the opening of this scholastic year the class met and reorganized. Arthur Sollee was elected to head the class, assisted by John Sherman as vice-president, George Milam as secretary and treasurer, and Anthony Regero as honor representative.
In the field of athletics this class has never been found wanting. Always has it responded with material when there was any team to try out for. Basketball and baseball found this class working hard to make a better team for a bigger and better Florida. Arthur Sollee, our president, won many laurels at the Southern Track Meet last year. As he is in the best of form, we look for more records from our star this year. Another member of the Junior class who has won great distinction is Lance Richbourg. Two years ago when the Giantsvere training on Fleming Field, they noticed his capabilities and contracted with him. He was released but made such a good showing last year that he is again a member of the Giant aggregation. "Rich" is coaching the Florida nine this year and the team is doing some splendid work under his supervision.
The officers of the numerous organizations on the campus, such as clubs, literary societies and debating societies, are literally infested with members of the Junior class. The officers of the Seminole are drawn from this class and it is their desire to put out a better annual this year.
Looking back, we see the largest part of our college life in the past and it is with deep regret that we will take up the responsibilities of a Senior because of the fact that it will mean that we have only one short year to spend within the pale of our Grand Old University.
A Pessimistic Poem
FREDERICK R. WEEDON, '21
A low dark cloud on the far horizon
Flashes to crimson and blinding white,
The black silhouette of a palm tree rising,
A last lone spirit of vanishing night
Against its glory is etched in darkness
Each feathery frond with its border of flame;
The palm tree whispers, "The Sun is coming,
You sands and ripples, that love his name.
"The breath of his kingship, the Dawn-wind, hurries
The lingering hosts of the mists away,
And I burn for the loss of my gentle mistressThe Night far fled from the shouting Day.
Hers was the love of the stars and the fireflies,
With them she has vanished, his colors appear;
And I call you to rouse from your restless dreaming,
You slaves of the Morning that slumber here.
"Through the long blue night you have lain enchanted,
Her mists were an incense, her shadows a charm,
That held you bound while her fairies wandered,
Lest your glitter and riot should work them harm.
But now they have lifted and gone without me,
I stand here in sorrow, deserted, alone,
The Sun bids me call and I bow to his dawningHis red rim is flaming, the shadows are gone."

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
In September, 1919, these men came from far and near to enter a new life. They had their ideas on the new life and of course you could see the green shining forth. Soon, however, they were obliged to alter their ideas and adjust themselves to the ideas of men who had been through the ropes and knew the "higher life" thoroughly. As rats, they adapted themselves in good form and soon were united in one purpose-to make a "Greater Florida."
The true spirit of the class was shown in their turn-out for athletics. The football team was a regular one and composed for a great part of Freshmen. Basketball and baseball also drew their support. The interclass track meet showed them to be a much faster lot than the older men. Then there were those memorable "shirt-tail" parades. Every "rat" turned out at any time of night to celebrate a victory.
At the beginning of the Sophomore year the class reorganized and elected J. A. Winfield as president, Truman Green as vice-president, W. D. Mahannah secretary and treasurer, and James F. Merrin honor representative. As is always the case, there were men who did not return, so the class began its second year with fewer members. However, the pep remained and the class began at once to do things in a monumental way that would tend to increase the prestige of "Old Florida" and serve as an example to the incoming Sophomore Class.
Football again found this class its hearty supporters and basketball flourished through its members. Baseball is as well supported, as the same genuine class spirit, which is indefatigable, exists when laurels are to be garnered for the U. of F.
At the close of the year we look up startled to find half of our scholastic career behind us. True it is a career for a class to be proud of, but ambition places the desire for a better class for a bigger university in the next two years.
TO THE COALS
RALPH P. PERKINS, '23
0, coals, that you could lend me of your fire, To sound heroic Homer's lyre
To gasp in Sappho's passioned strain,
To Tennyson's melodic majesty aspire.
0, coals, within your heart I see A vision long forbidden me; I see a maiden, on her breast
Her niece's golden duck-curls rest; And in the fire-shine's softest glow
The sweet tears come, and ebb and flow, As through the mist that veils my eyes
In her a vision changes, dies.
All her form unfolds to me
The moody majesty of the sea,
Flecked with froth and roaring spray;
O'er all, the sea gulls, white specks far away.
I see in her the Autumn hills
Where purple vapor from their vales distills,
And the gorgeous gum and lonely pine
In sadly softened landscape swim, divine.
Her sweet inconsequential words to me Ring in my heart like that majestic sea:
Else, like the songs of birds, or like some strain
From many-voiced orchestral choir, or greatest orchestra of all-the rain.
But, coals! What madness holds me now?
Have I forgot my long-kept vow?
I have labored long alone,
Nor love, nor wife, nor children by the fireside known.
Since one maid was forbidden me
'Tis sacrilege that I should ever see
That vision of the long ago.
Her life is all her own, and so should be.
But 0, sometimes this sad heart longs for rest,
A home and hearth by true love blessed,
The form of a girl in the firelight gleam, And the head of a child upon her breast.

My Alma Mater, old in my heart, and dear,
Situate 'neath ever-bright Floridian skies,
As deep and pure as some shy maiden's eyes,
Clinging to kind and verdurous earth so near;
O, soul of Florida, that thou couldst hear
The song of one whose proud and humble heart
Sings ever when it ponders what thou art
To all whose fortune 'tis that thou dost rear.
The youths and maids who tread the shifting shade
Cast on thy paths by towering campus pines
Learn from thy heart, and nature's subtle signs,
To keep an unconscious compact they have made, Remembering, reverencing thee where'er they go.
O, ever may thy children love thee so.
FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
The largest class ever enrolled in the University of Florida is a mild
statement of the size of this class. Numbering over three hundred it almost doubled the class of the preceding year. Men who had been in the army and overseas were returned and in search of higher education. This aided in making this not only a class of large numbers but also one of mature intellect. In previous years the men entering college for the first time were younger, inexperienced boys fresh from the high schools. This class brought a new element into the University: the man with the broad
viewpoint and serious thought.
The big unwieldy body was brought together in the gymnasium early
in the year and organized. They chose for their president Kernel Hughes, Edwin Brengle for vice-president, Robert Jones for secretary and treasurer, and James Boyd for honor representative. With these men in the lead the class at once began to forge ahead. On the football field the "Rat"
was given his chance to make the team and many of the old "F" men were hard pushed to hold their position. Basketball brought the same support and there is great promise as to the baseball prospects. Track will also bring the light-footed "Rats" out to rival the old men. There will be keen rivalry as there is equally good material in all classes this year.
When the Sophomores posted the "Rat" rules this class met and agreed
to do its part in carrying them out. Green caps were donned and the button touched on passing or speaking to an "old man." As a whole there was the best co-operation on the part of this class of any that have entered
Taking all in all this class can look back over the year and feel proud
of its achievements. As to their academic work it must be left to the faculty to judge their capability and preparedness for the next year's work. We hope that they may think the best of us all and we resolve
to make ourselves worthy of their revered opinions.
May the "Rats" of next year profit by our mistakes.

STUDENT BODY ASSOCIATION
ENT BODY ASSOCIATION
Just before the close of Ze 1919-1920 term the Student Body took a step which is one of the most important ever taken by this University. This was the passing of a budget which puts the activities on such a business-like basis that there is no excuse for failure of any of them. This budget was passed by such a convincing majority, although there were bitter enemies against it, that the Faculty and Board of Control without hesitation accepted it and at the beginning of this year it went into effect.
This budget provided that an entrance fee of twenty dollars be assessed on every man at registration. This fee covers all student activities as follows: Major sports, minor sports, debates and literary societies, the Young Men's Christian Association, the Alligator, Seminole, a Lyceum Course, Gymnasium, and a special fund. The Blue Print at the beginning of this section shows the working of the budget. The adopting of this budget has been a fine thing for the University and may well be copied by other schools. The fact is that many schools have inquired into the nature and working of the budget.
After it had been introduced, a committee, B. E. Bushnell, President of the Student Body, R. P. Terry and J. Velma Keen took it in hand and drew up a proposed constitution. At the same time committees of students well versed in the needs of the different activities were appointed, and they reported the amount which they would need as their share of the Budget. When the amounts were agreed upon and the constitution written it was all brought before the student body for discussion. At the next Friday Chapel it was voted upon, each item separately, by ballot, and every item raised.
The constitution called for the organization of a student body association, which is composed of all who pay the fee required on.entrance. This association has control of all funds. The officers under it are: President, Vice-President, Secretary, and the University Auditor as Treasurer. A committee of two faculty members and three students known as the Budget Committee are elected by the association to supervise the spending of the funds which are turned over by the committee to the officers of the different activities.
The officers and the Budget Committee were elected this year at the first of the term, but after this they will be elected just before school closes for the succeeding year. The committee had no outline of work to follow except that outlined in the blue print above, but at early meetings, by-laws were adopted and it soon started functioning. Records are kept for every cent given out and the different departments are required to return receipted bills to cover the amount given them. In this way there is no chance for fraud, for the books must be kept up to date and are always open for inspection. The Budget Committee meets the last Tuesday of every month.
The fee added to the student's expense at entrance is paid to the University Auditor. Sums may be gotten from him only by having a properly endorsed requisition from the Budget Committee. The total amount paid in is divided to the different organizations as follows.
Major Sports ........... ............ $5.00 per man Literary Societies and
Minor Sports ....... ................ 1.50 per man Debates .............................. $1.00 per man
Lyceum .................................. 1.00 per man Y. M C. A ............................. 2.50 per man
Special Fund ..................... 1.50 per man Gymnasium .......................... 3.00 per man
Alligator .............................. 1.00 per man Seminole ................................ 3.50 per man
This is a time when governments, business organizations and all other wise organizations see the economical value of a budget and are operating under them. It is with us as with all who try it, a great saving. At the small expense to each man the activities have had about $14,000 at their disposal and with wise expenditure this amount has had the value of nearly twice that much. It has saved every man dollars which he cannot realize.
Besides the savings it has created better spirit. The organizations know what they have to work with financially and have been able to do more. There has been none of that disagreeable canvassing for something all the time, which drains the pocket-book and destroys the patience. Every man has gotten far more than he put into it, and most of them realize it. Many of the bitter enemies of the budget before it passed are its staunch supporters now and would not see it done away with.

The Athletic Association of the University is the oldest of the organizations on the campus which includes the entire Student Body. It was organized several years ago and then it was decided that an entrance fee of five dollars would be placed upon all men to cover major sports. This gives every student membership and also entitles him to see free of charge all games and contests under major sports held on Fleming Field or in the gymnasium. The same organization exists today and the fee is included in the budget.
At the organization of the association a constitution was drawn up and adopted. This provides that the officers be a President, Vice-President, Secretary, and the University Auditor as Treasurer. The President after proper notification calls meetings of the association. The constitution also provides that an Athletic Board be elected to carry on certain work for the association. This board consists of a faculty member, the Physical Director or Coach, one alumnus, and four students. The President presides at meetings and the Secretary keeps minutes. The Faculty committee on athletics supervises all the actions of the board.
The Board divides the fund to the major sports, football, basketball, baseball, and track. At one time there was a deficit in the treasury but now the slate is clean and running on what is allowed for it. Track and basketball have been cut down on in the appropriation at times, but not this year. As a result they have taken a long step forward in their accomplishments. The board elects managers for baseball, basketball, and track. It recommends men for election as football manager who have been assistant managers. It awards letters to the participants in the different athletics. It supervises the election of the captains of the teams.
Our school is a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association and is governed by its rules. We were complimented this year by having the yearly convention with us. Representatives from all the colleges and universities in the South were here. Many questions of importance were discussed but there is not space here to enumerate them
The constitution of our association is being re-written and likely there will be many changes'in it. This was made necessary, partly because the S. I. A. A. required more authority in the hands of the faculty and partly because changed conditions warrant it. As soon as the new constitution is written it will be voted upon and very likely will go into effect at the beginning of the 1921-1922 session.

THE HONOR SYSTEM
Approximately six years ago the faculty of the University of Florida gave to the student body the privilege of organizing an honor system. At the same time an Honor Committee was provided for. This committee consists of one member elected from each class with the president of the Senior class as chairman. The representative from the Junior class acts as secretary of the committee.
At the present time there are two major violations of the honor system. The first violation is receiving or giving aid in class work or an examination. The penalty for this offense is expulsion from the student body or the privilege of resigning within forty-eight hours. Failure to resign within the stated time will, of course, result in summary expulsion. The second violation is failure to report cheating when seen. The penalty, more lenient than the breach of honor, is suspension from the student body for any length of time seen fit, or in extreme cases, expulsion.
The modus operandi of the honor system is this: If a member of the student body sees another perpetrating any breach of the honor system, he must call a third student as a witness of the act. The honor committee meets and the two witnesses lay the case before it. If the committee thinks the fact serious enough, the accused is called and the accusation is made known to him. The culprit has the right to plead his own case and to call whatsoever witnesses he desires. If he pleads guilty of the serious offense, he is given forty-eight hours in which to present his formal resignation. Failing in this, he is automatically considered expelled by a special authority delegated to the honor system by the faculty. If the accused pleads guilty to a minor offense or not guilty to a major offense, the committee hears both sides of the case. Their decision is then made known. The verdict of the committee is, however, not final. If the accused so desires, he may carry his appeal to a higher court. He may bring his case before the faculty discipline committee. The faculty discipline committee's verdict is final. So just have been the honor committees and so fair their verdicts that the faculty discipline committee, in the approximate six years of growth of the system, has never failed to agree absolutely with the decision reached by the honor committee.
The honor system as employed in the University of Florida is at present undergoing a revision. A series of unexpected incidents during the year have made it necessary that, while not changed basically, the honor system be extended to cover more territory. Probably the principal revision will be in putting all squads for major sports in the University under the power of the honor system. While there will be other revisions or additions, the above will be the most important.
The honor system is a proven success. Through the past six years it has grown in popularity and usefulness until it has very nearly stamped out cheating, of which all universities have a share. The seriousness with which the student body has accepted the system has had much to do with its success. The Senior class has taken it upon itself to instruct the incoming Freshman in its usage. The system has become an established custom. This fact alone tends to impress its worth on the new student's mind, for a person entering the institution for the first time generally accepts its customs as his own.

THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
The Young Men's Christian Association of the University is composed of all the students who pay their entrance fees. At the head of it is a paid secretary and four elected officers from the Student Body. The officers and secretary form an executive committee which selects committees to help carry on the work of the association. The chairmen of the committees with the elected officers form a cabinet which decides upon and shapes the work. To carry out the work a larger body of men are organized into a Friendship Council.
For a secretary the association, and in fact the University, is fortunate in having Rev. Geo. E. White, a man of exceptional ability, devotion to his work, and untiring energy. He helps plan all work with the cabinet and has a great deal of personal work on his hands. As a member of the self-help committee of the faculty he has given many needy ones work both on the campus and off the campus. He has many personal conferences with men concerning their calling in life and their religious and moral life as well as conferences which are too personal to mention their nature. Through his efforts a large amount of money has been raised from the friends of the association in Gainesville and all over the state. This has aided the work in a way that the budget funds were not able to reach. Among other things a short loan fund has been established, by which boys in immediate financial embarrassment have been assisted.
The Cabinet is composed of a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Chairmen of the following Committees: Bible Study, Mission Study, Social, Athletic, Room, Publicity, and Suggestions. Meetings are held once a week on Wednesday night. The Friendship Council is composed of enough men to have a man on it for every ten men in the University. The names of ten men are given to each member and he is supposed to make friends with them. In this way the association has touch with every man that is in school.
The Y. M. C. A. has tried to give social advantages to the students. It has tried to co-operate with the Gainesville churches. It has organized Bible Classes and held religious services on Wednesday night. It has secured a large number of scholarships for students. It has tried to make Chapel services interesting and instructive. It has stood for clean athletics and a Greater Florida. It has endeavored to keep alive and increase the religious life of all in school. It has sent a quartet and speakers out to nearby places to hold religious services. It has tried to keep a comfortable room in which men can read, write and have music. We still have in mind the possibilities of a new building and hope to have something definite concerning it in the near future.
