Blue Key Plans
By HERB ,STALLWORTII
Florida Blue Key will be re-
activated sometime during the
next month, after having been
inactive during the war years.
Though there are only two mem-
bers enrolled in the University at
present, John Joca and Frank
Duckworth, it is expected 1hat
the organization will come jack
just as strong and progiesszve
as it ever was in yea:s gone by.
Sitce Florida Blue Key is c,,n-
sidered to be the most important
leadership organization on the,
campus, all freshmen and other'
new men should know something
Florida Blue Key is strictly
non-political and is not affiliated
with any other fraternity, na-
tional or local. Its prime mo-\
tive is the development, utiliza-
tion and guidance of leadership
and good citizenship on the Flor-
ida campus. It is intended that
such development lasts not only
during the four years a member
lives in the University, but fol-
lows him on into later life as
a definite asset to his personality
and to his record. In fact, the

Though the Florida Blue Key3
had its origin in November, 1923,
in a loosely organized effort to
assist in "Dad's Day" on the cam-
pus, it became a fully developed
and integrated fraternity in May
1925 at which time the present
constitution was effected in all
its ramifications. The inaugura-
tion of the first "Annual Florida
Blue Key Homecoming Banquet"
came in November 1929. In the
spring of 1933, the Florida Blue

years of Florida Union when the auditorium often served
as a chapel and when many religious activities were car-
ried out on the "Y" floor. However, today the vast ma-
jority of the goings on on the second floor are secular
in nature. Off-campus chapels serve as religious centers,
arid many students only visit the second floor of the Union
when they want to read "Esquire."
So, in light of conditions, we believe that the YMCA
should change its little rule. No one, would smoke in the
prayer room, rule or not, and many people desire to smoke
on other parts of the floor. Smoking is hardly an indica-
tion of moral degeneration, and the sweet sign placed at
the top of th'e stairs woos very few lads away from the
toils of tobacco.
Therefore we suggest that the YMCA, which we sus-

is, keep pace wth the times, turn a brave face to the

through the Lyceum Council's efforts.
The movie showed that the stage version was a proper interpreta-
tion of the play and bore out the commendations which many have
already extended to the Lyceum Cou.:cil for its selection. It is amaz-
ing how closely the movie coincided with the play.
Acting in most cases was as. cerditably done by the play troupe
as by the movie actors. In fact, Judy and Fluffy were more effective
in the play than their movie counterparts. Allyn Joslyn, of course,
performed. more naturally than the father in the stage presentation.
His lines were more easily uni.lerstood and rendered with more witty
The audience seemed to enjoy both versions. Yet, after apparently
enjoying the play, many people stated that it was poorly done, bad
taste, and all in all an insult to Gainesville intelligence. Slill these
people said they liked lhe movie. Of course, there are those who don't
care for plays as such. lTut one wonders if perhaps it was a little
difficult for some to realize that Leen age youngsters are as precocious
as they are.
At any rate, one wonders why Gainesville so vehemently expressed
dislike for the play when the movie tears out the commendations made
on the acting by people who liked the stage presentation.
There were those who thought the stage scenery and clothing of
the actors were too impoverished for people who had attended Yale
and Smith. Yale and Smith, although excellent schools, do, not guar-
antee that all their graduates will be among New York's Four Hun-
The family was middle class, a struggling middle class family. The
movie bore out the play's interpretation that they were living to the
maximum of their income. They did well to maintain the maid and
as nice furnishings as they did.
The "un"-elaborate movie setting (and Hollywood usually sets even
poverty in elaborate and make-believe elegance) is proof that the
stage set should not be one which would be creditable to a Four-Hun-
dred family. Then why did some of the Gainesville play audience tip
their nose at a forty-five degree angle and insist they were played-
down-to by the "impoverished" setting? They termed it bad taste.
It's all really very -confusing for those of us who enjoyed the Ly-
ceum Council play. We are hoping that the expression of the people
who felt "played-down-to" by this excellent troupe, will not influence
this year's council. We have teen hoping the Lyceum would provide
another play as enjoyable and as well done as was "Junior Miss."

The wear and tear on shoe leather for

The second World War years
weighed heavily on the normal ac-
tivities of the University. Many
events which previously had high-
lighted the school year were dis-
continued, Homecoming among
them- -but only for one year,
1943. In a much smaller way, fes-
tivities were resumed again in
1944. Tribute was paid to Gator-

and their dead, a, football game
was played, and the fraternities
held open-house parties.
Now, this week-end, almost
complete normalcy has been re-
