THIE fLOCR I DA
THE FLORIDA ALLIGATOR GAINESVILLE, FLA., SEPT. 28, 1945
By GEORGE KOWKABANY
With over 300 veterans enrolled in the University this fall- this
column hopes to accomplish what its. predecessors, ",You and the
War" and "Present and Future" did during the war.
We'll try to keep the veteran element on the campus up on
the latest news of interest to veterans as well as try to answer
any questions that may plague the reader in regard to veterans'
problems. Questions, criticism, and suggestions via the mail
box will be welcomed.
Veterans are urged to attend the next meeting of "Gator Vet-
erans" which will be held in Florida Union at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Of-
ficers will be elected for the new term.
How It All Began
Now for the ,benefit of the new veterans on the campus we'd like
to give a short history of the "Gator Veterabs."
In September, 1944, the handful of veterans on the campus
called a meeting to discuss the formation of an organization
whose sole purpose would be to serve as a medium for discus-
sion and constructive action on problems and interests peculiar
With the approbation of the faculty represented by R. C. Beaty,
the infant organization embarked on an ambitious schedule of discus-
sion forums featuring prominent speakers and occasional social events.
When a student died in the University infirmary, "Gator Vet-
erans" attracted statewide attention by its investigation of the
case. The findings of the committee were later substantially con-
firmed by a committee of the State Legislature. That brings us
up to date.
Every Vet Should Join
As the number of returning veterans increases, the organization is
. in a position to exert considerable influence in campus affairs. The-
nature of this influence will be largely determined by the men who
take an active part in the organization. The actions of the group
will reflect on every veteran on the campus.
Consequently every veteran should feel it his obligation and
duty to become a member and participate to the fullest extent.
He should see to it that the organization which represents the
veterans in the eyes of the campus, is not dominated or misused
by cliques for the furtherance of their own selfish aims.

Florida Union, social center on

Wauberg Friday afternoon and
evening, October 5, at 5 p. m.
Camp Wauberg is a University
owned Florida Union-sponsored
camp 10 miles south on the Ocala
Road. Wauberg is open from 8
a.m. to 8 p.m. to all University
personnel for swimming, boating,
fishing, picnics and dancing.
Because of the limited capacity
of Camp Wauberg, the October
Mixer will be limited to the first
150 students, faculty members
and their wives who sign up for
reservations at the Florida Union
desk, beginning Monday, October
Each person is asked to bring
his own supper. A fee of 25
cents per person will be charged
at the time -a reservation is
made to cover cost of punch, ice
cream, and a public address sys-
tem with popular records.
Because the Union is unable to
furnish transportation, all who
plan to take cars are asked to
stop by the Florida Union and
fill their cars with those who do
not have rides.

Opp Says Dorms

That enrollment next term will

of Carl B. Opp, acting director
of residence, this week. There is
hope, however, that four sections
not now in use because of run
down condition, may be brought
back into service.
At the beginning of this term
plans were made to take care of
966 persons in the dormitories.
According to figures released by
Opp's office, 905 persons now oc-

THE SPIRIT OF THE THING
We noticed a decided lack of that old Florida spirit
during, the game with Blanding's 63rd this past Satur-
There, on. th.e field, the Gators were going about their
business of piling up yardage and touchdowns in a busi-
ness-like. manner. In fi'ont of the stands the Cheerleading
squad was performing wild exhortations Did the
Florida stands answer the pleadings of the che-erleaders,
did they vocally spur the Gators on to even greater ef-
forts, did they drown out the band ? They did not.
Well, perhaps it wasn't quite as bad as all that, but
even so, Florida cheering was pretty feeble. Except for
an occasional outburst in. applause of some particularly
br illiant play, a more or less deathly pall. hung over the
Florida cheering section.
Of course, this was only the first game and' it is logi-
cal to hope that Florida will soon find its voice, but re-
member that the most important games are still to be
played, the best plays yet to be made, and the greatest
aeed for football support is ahead. So apply a little
effort, learn the songs and cheers of the University and
don't be afraid to give out at those games. Let's be, sure
that whether the game turns out win, lose, 'or draw, we
can always return to the University, hoarse but happy,
knowing that we. cheered our opponents under the pro-
-verbial table (or bar, as the case may be). D. S.

The Florida Gators, after an
impressive 31-2 win over the Six-
ty-third Regiment eleven from
Camp Blanding, journey to Jack-
sonville this weekend to meet the
Ole Miss Rebels.
The' Gators will be the underdog
in their first Southeastern Con-
ference encounter, as the Rebels
looked very impressive last Fri-
day night in subduing a heavier
and favored Kentucky eleven,
In Saturday's game the Gator
backfield men displayed a- lot of
speed, and boys like Billy Carter,
Junior Dupree, Tony Occhiuzzi,
and Tom Vangelas, should be able
to go places this season if sup-
plied with the necessary blocking
by the forward wall.
Coach Tom Lieb's fighting Ga-
tors will be depending heavily on
their passing attack which is cen-
tered around ends Ottis Mooney,
who will captain the Gators, and
Joe Chesser, with Angus Williams
and Buddy Carter doing the toss-
The Gators have been running
plays against Rebel defensive for-
mations and brushing up on last
week's game all week, and have
looked well enough to give up
hope for a possible upset.
Coach Harry Mehre's Rebels
will be led by their end and cap-
tain, Bob McCain, and their ver-
s a t i 1 e southpaw quarterback,
Johnny Bruce. CaptaTn McCain
scored twfce against the Wildcats
on end-arounds and is expected to
give the Gators a tough night.
