Engineering Station

Developed Fuse

Important Electronic Device Was

Outstanding War Contribution

Authorities in Washington dis-
closed late yesterday that the
Engineering Experiment Station
of the University of Florida as-
sisted in the development of per-
,haps the second most important
new weapon of World War II-
.an electronic fuse for detonating
a boihb or projectile automatic-
ally when it near its target.
Really a miniature radio send-
ing and receiving set smaller than
the ordinary teacup, the new fuse
de,.'I,oped in Gainesville differs
from all others in that it con-
fains its own wind-driven gene-
rator instead of a battery which
occupies precious space in the
nose of the projectile.
In February, 1945, over 1,000
bombs detonated by this new fuze
were dropped on Iwo Jima by
Seventh Air Force bombers. The
missions were exceptionally suc-
cessful, averaging approximately
90 per cent accuracy as shown by
- reconnaissance photographs. In

in the Florida Union building,
Tuesday night for the purpose of
outlining the society's program
for fall term and the election of
Tnew officers.
The new officers, Jean Whit-
more, president, and Mardis
Meyer, secretary-treasurer, are

Dr. P. A. Foote, director of
"the school, spoke on the history
of the Pharmacy College, the op-
portunities offered in the profes-
sion, and also discussed the pur-
poses -and functions of Mortar
and Pestle.

the case of a bomb, the dispersion
of the bomb fragments is greater
when the bomb is equipped with
a radio proximity (electronic)

effective against enemy person-

National Defense Research Coun-
cil, headed by Dr. Alexander
Ellett, of the Office of Scientific

the development and improve-
ment of such a fuze.

Gators Underdog

In Tulane Tilt
'22 Was Last Gator
Win Over Greenies
When the Fightlng Gators take
the field in New Orleans Saturday
afternoon to furnish the opposi-
tion for the Tulane Green Wave,
they will be the decided underdog
in the minds of the sports experts
of the nation but the decided fa-
vorite of Gator followers.
This is the eighth meeting of
the two teams and the Gators will
be trying for their third win. The
last Florida win came in 1922. The
two teams have not met since
1935 when the Green Wave hand-
ed the Floridians a sound beat-
The Gators will be captained -by
Jack White who hails from Paris,
Texas. Jack is a sophomore and
is playing his second year of ball
for the Gators. He has played
great ball so far this year and
has been a great help to his side
of the line. In the Mississippi
game last week he broke through
and blocked a punt that meant a
score for the Gators.
This is the second conference
filt for the Gators and it will
mean a lot in the loop race. If
the Gators win they will be a
strong contender- for the crown.
The Greenies are rated one of the
top teams of the South so the
Florida team will have to play
some mighty good ball t6 come
out on top.
With the help of a few breaks
and if the boys play the type of
ball they did in the Mississippi
game they will give a good ac-
count of themselves.

: To honor Palooka and his crea-
tor, Ham Fisher, Monogram Films

Debate Team

To Organize

Constans Plans Busy
Schedule For Semester
"It will soon. be time for the
organization of debate teams in
the University," Prof. H. P. Con-
stans of the Department of
Speech said yesterday.
Before the war, the University
had the finest forensic schedule
of any school in the South. The
team made one of the best records
of any southern university.
Debating is done under the di-
rection of the Department of
Speech. The plan this year is to
have two squads, one from the
University College and the other
will be a varsity squad.
Professor Constans has not yet
received a copy of the national
question for this year. As soon
as the question is announced, he
will make a call for men interest-
ed in debating.
When all interested men have
come out, they will meet and have
a general discussion of the ques-
tion and try to find the issue.
Later a series of practice de-
bates will be held. Every man
will have several opportunities to
participate.. Some of the Univer-
sity professors who are experts
on some phase of the particular
question will discuss it with the

This year's team is tentatively
scheduled to attend the tourna-
ment sponsored by the Southern
Association of Speech. It will
probably participate in the Grand
Eastern Tournament in North
Carolina. Plans arte also being
formulated for a Florida tr'p..
Professor Constans emphasized
that everyone interested is wel-
come to join the teams. No ex-
"perience is necessary.

'Lighthorse Harry' Has Colt;

Becomes Dad After Election

Robert Aston Lee, 7-lb., 6-oz. Lad
Arrives As Father Loses Election

Why, on September 28th, the
morning after the great election,

was "Light Horse Harry" Lee,
the losing contender for the pres-
idency, passing out cigars accom-
panied by beaming smiles? There-
by hangs a tale.
Listen My Children
Once upon a time, in the not
so long distant past, the serenity
of this staid and dignified old
campus was broken by sound
trucks bearing promises for one
and all, would-be fish frys, and
a few throat-cuttings thrown in
for just the right touch. The
effect was cyclonic.
As the fury of the tempest
grew the candidates promised
anything for your vote, even the
white horse of Tokyo. At 6:00
p.m., Thursday last, a tense calm
temporarily settled over the polls.
The counting began, and the
wrinkles and strains of waiting
began to tell mentally.
Far into the dark night the
anxious ones walked the floor and
gnawed their fingers or the bal-

cony railing. At mid-night the
last vote was recorded and the
counters slumped back with a
sigh. The results were chalked
up and there was laughter and
there was tears. Soon quiet de-
scended, for the victors and de-
feated alike, staggered from .one
lamp post to another to their re-
spective rooms to set the alarms
for o'clock appointments.
The Lonely Vigil
But, not all could so complac-
ently seek their rest. There was
one lone sentinel keeping yet an-
other vigil. The hours dragged
by and become monotonous eons
of time. Still did the solitary
figure pace up and down, back
and forth, and round and round.
Now and again he would start
as though stung and stride to
the door, pause and listen in-
tently. "Each time he would turn
away in failure to continue the
anxious pacing.
Into the soft gray hours of thd
dawn came a faint cry to break
the ceaseles,- .:tch. Relief and

t This week the University was 'presented with an op-
qp&tunity to garner an estimated half-million dollars worth
of publicity when Al Lino of the St. Petersburg Times
visited the campus and began a search to find a typical
Srmuerican boy a "Joe Palooka" to play a part
Im a series of movies that Monogram studios is planning
to make in the near future.

As special incentive to participants, we would like
to point out that the University is not the only one who
would profit by the selection of a Florida man think

You don't have to look like Jo'e Palooka you just

don't win the featured role, several other parts in the
movie series will be open to contestants.

We were struck by an in-
teresting thought thli* week.
What if, say, some local pas-
tor were to come out for one
or ot her of the political
{candidates for office? Every-
one realizes what a furor
that. would cause. There
would be pri.judices, and name
c(.aling, and bitter feeling
stirred up.
Qualifications ?
Of course, we know that that's
an impossible case. But it's a
fair analogy to some of the condi-
tions that existed during the late
What we are driving at is
that we consider it unjust to
-drag ,avowedly non-partisAn
anid non-political organiza-
tions into the very exciting,
but often degrading field of
politics. There's no argu-
nient about such a point as
business managership of a
large campus group helping
to qualify a candid-ite for a
financial position of a eam-
pus-wide nature. But would
our merely having sung in the
Glee Club justify our being"
elected to a seat in the Honor
Court ?
There are more serious aspects
of the case. In some instances
ambitious individuals forget their
responsibilities in suggesting at-
tempts to divide friend from
friends, group from group, by
:whisper campaigns. That may do
what about

the pressure boys wno ration-
alize every misdeed by saying,
"Well, isn't that the way poli-
tics is run?"
Our only answer is that our
democracy was not founded upon
its politics, but its politics upoci
our democracy. When the Gutor
Veterans, the musical clubs, the
jounalistic groups repeat again
and again that they want no con-
nection ,fith political parties, it
seems hardly fair to drag mere
membership in one of them on
to the campaign platform when
they would undoubtedly be far
happier far away from the stew
of ranting and rumbling that ac-

As the "Lady lOn A Train"
arrives in New York, she
looks ,out from the Pullman
coach and sees a man nmur-
dered. She doesn't see their
murderer but is determined to
run him down, even though
the victim is reported to have
died accidentally.
The lady, Deanna Durbin, an
avid reader of mystery stories,
secures the help of a mystery-
story writer to track down the
murderer after the police scoff at
her account of the murder. Ralph
Bellamy, Edward Everett Horton,
George Coulouris, Allen Jenkins,
David Bruce, Dan Duryea, and
Patricia Morrison all figure in the
lady's sleuthing.
"Lady lOn A Train" isn't all
mystery, however. It is billed
as a comedy-mystery and in-
cludes three songs by the star.
The film is from Universal
studios and will be screened
today and tomorrow at the
I lorida.

Peggy Ann Garner as the star
of "Junior Miss." leaves her usual
dramatic type of role for that of

Junior Miss is the thirteen-
year old daughter ,of a typi-
cally American family. She is
"hep" to everything, has an
enormous appetite, is awk-
ward with her first boy-
friends, has family quarrels
with her sister, has an equal-
ly wild chum, and harasses
her long-suffering father.

With veterans returning to the campus in ever increasing num-
Tiers the University has been hard pressed to come to a decision on
the evaluation of courses taken in the various army and navy
educational programs.
The American Council On Education realizing the complexity of
S-.3 problem has expended large sums of money and time in an at-
i-mpt to clarify the situation. The result of this work has been the
publication of a voluminous guide listing recommendations of the
Lo'uicit on evaluation of tne courses in ASTP, V-12, V-5, etc,
Committee Reports
- Here at thr.' university, a faculty committee headed by R. S.
iouhnson, registrar, has been studying the problem for over a year.
t'.The result of their labors has been the compilation of a four page
)report dealing with specific rules and general recommendations
ftor evaluating credits. The committee is to be commended for
i ie brevity of the report which indicates the enormous amount of
condensation and simplification involved in writing it.
However the very complexity of dealing with hundreds of special
e--5es demands that individual attention be given to each case. The
i-ommittee pondered over thousands of pages of reports compiled by
Co-;.er colleges before writing its own report.
A rather general estimate of the report would be to say that
, the University will be as reasonable as possible in giving credits
' mn apoordance with the various schemes for evaluating courses,
insofar as duplication of credits and lack of applicability to the
students degree objective are avoided.
Housing Problems
'Another problem bound to grow in succeeding months is that of
pwoviding adequate, low cost housing for veterans and their wives.
'i;t5 housing committee in conjunction with Dr. Tigert and Dean R. C.
Treaty is thoroughly going into the problem of providing low cost
op'irtment units near the campus.
Among the plans being considered is that of building apart-
imtent houses. The difficulties involved are obvious. The scarcity
fi materials and the high cost of labor make such a project dif-
.Ecuitt at this time. Renting houses near the campus brings up
the housing shortage.
The committee has even considered moving suitable dwellings into
>-esville from other cities. As yet nothing definite can be an-
n.,- .ced. However the committee is making every effort to solve the
S)-,olem and hopes to have the situation remedied by February or

Florida's second touchdown_ was set up by Captain .rtti ooney
and Jack White when they blocked-Bruce's punt, the. b.pl out
on the Rebel five yard stripe. Welden Wright pounded &i.- tackle
for the score. Sapp's placekick was good, Wut the Gator~s~were offi
side and Sapp had to try again. The ball hit the cross-bar and
bounced back onto the field.
Fumbles And More Fumbles
After Henry Brown recovered Bruce's fumble for Florida on
the 3Z yard stripe, the Gators handed the ball in the same fash-
ion to Ole Miss. It was at this point that Mississippi's versatile
captain, Ken McCain, scampered 6.-yards on his favorite end-
around play. Kauerz converted, a.tgr- the score.
Angus Williams returned Bruce'sf kick thirty yards, l t G -
tors were penalized for clipping,_ ad the ball went baoct A G&-
tor's 40 yard stripe. Dupree and Van Gelas alternated to carry tile
ball to Mississippi's 35 yard line. It was here that Dupree connected
to Sid Vaughan again, this time in the encL zone and good for a score.
Sapp's place kick was good this time, making the score 19-7 at hali-
In the third quarter the Rebels were. unable to gain, and Bruce
punted to the Gators' 35 yard line. Dupree, Hogan, and Van. Gelai
collaborated making it a firstdown-.o- the Mississippi 25., :From,,
here Dupree raoed all the way around left end. The pass from
center was low, but Gilmartin picked the ball up and ran around'z:
left end for the extra point, putting Florida ahead 26-7.:' '1:,'' --'.
As the game neared the qnd a poor Gator punt gave the 'ReVelig
the ball in midfield. McCain raced5.ff right tackle to Florida's 20.
Vernon Wells passed to Sears -on the four. McCain picked -,p.,',wo
off right tackle and Sears hit the middle of the line for the six-pointer.
