Add New Members
Plans were formulated Wed-
nesday night for the return of
Florida Blue Key to the campus
as alumni and active members met
to discuss the possibilities of
bringing the service fraternity
back to the position of prestige it
held before being disbanded in
The decision to freeze Florida
Blue Key came only after several
months discussion of the problem
in bi-monthly meetings, which
were attended by the active and
alumni members. This decision
was reached because it was found
that not a single member was to
return to school for the fall se-
mester of 1944. Therefore, on
January 12, 1943, the active mem-
bers Blue Key amended its con-
stitution providing for "freezing"
Each semester since September,
1944, the alumni secretary, Dean
J. Ed Price, has requested stu-
dents who believed they met min-
imum eligibility requirements for
membership to submit to him
their qualifications, with the un-
derstanding that when Blue Key
was reactivated they would be
considered for membership, as of
the time and quota of their at-
tendance at the University. Those
qualifications for each individual
are on file but aspirants on cam-
pus should resubmit qualifications.
Under the provisions of the
emergency amendment new mem-
bers will be elected early in the
second semester of this school
year. Students who feel that they
are qualified now or that they will
be qualified by February are
urged to submit their names and
qualifications to Room 3, Lang-
uage Hall by Tuesday, October
23rd, before noon. These applica-
tions will be voted upon to find

certed membership drive which
will seek to enroll every veteran
on the campus as a member of
At present 130 of the 400 vet-
erans now on the campus are

Three thousand dollars will be
the University's 1945 contribution
to the National War Fund Drive,
it was announced this week.
The quota this year for the
University is larger than last
year's quota and each student and
University employee is being'
asked to contribute more to the
fund. The campaign on the cam-
pus is under the direction of
Dean R. C. Beauty, chairman of
the Committee on Extra-Curricu-
"More than 10,000 men have
gone from this campus into the
Second World War; over 300 of
wer injured, maimed for life, sc
much that making a living is ou
of the question. Some of these
men have died and left wives an
children who have to be care.
"On behalf of the opening o.
the National War Fund Drive o
the campus, I wish to urge ever
student to give something toward
making the drive successful. 1
is the duty of those who ar-
privileged to remain here to hel
these families, and the men wh
can't help themselves. You ca
do this by contributing to the Na

Beaty said. "Some of these men that you will. do all you can."
TO THE MEMBERS OF THE FACULTY, STAFF ANi
STUDENT BODY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF FLOK
Even though the enemy has surrendered on the battle,
field, there is still an urgent need for the services which.
the National War Fund can render to our men in the oc-
cupied areas and to the poverty-stricken and destitute
peoples in the Allied countries.
The drive for the National War Fund will start in Floi-
ida and in Alachua County this month. The goal set fo-
this fund is the same as it was last year, $115,000,000. Th.
Alachua County goal is larger than it was last year, an
the University has been asked to accept a quota of $3,000.
Like other campaigns, the gifts to this fund will L,
voluntary. During the war period we met our quota, am.
in most instances oversubscribed it, on all drives. We a
all familiar with the program of the agencies in the Na-
tional War Fund and the tremendous amount of good the.
can be done with the Fund's contributions. The program,
is heartily endorsed by the National Governtlent.
There will be someone in each building on the camp.
designated to receive contributions. Additional announce
ments will be made in the "Orange and Blue Bulletin" an.
in the "Florida Alligator" with reference to those wli
will be designated to accept contributions. It will facility,
niatters greatly if you will contact the person in you,
building who will be in charge of receiving contribution.
*to this fund and make your contribution without waiting
to be solicited. I have asked the Committee on Extra
Curricular Activities, of which Dean R. C. Beaty is chair
man, to handle the campaign on the campus.
I hope that every member of the Faculty, Staff an(
Student Body of the University of Florida will find it pos
sible to subscribe liberally to this worth-while cause.

Florida's Gators, smarting from
their upset defeat to Vanderbilt
University's Commodores, settled
down to hard drills here this week
in preparation for their underdog
role against the University of Mi-
ami's Hurricanes in the Orange
Head Coach Tom Lieb isn't
the least bit optimistic over his
chances tonight and rates his
Gators the definite underdog
against Miami, after the 7-i0 de-
feat the .C-nmodores handed
the Gators before approximate-
ly 19,000 Homecoming fans.
Although the Gators are in "fair
shape" to start against the Hurri-
canes, Lieb points out that with
the game being played tonight
Florida hasn't had the advantage
of an extra day of rest and prac-
tice that Miami has.
Short Practice Week
The Gators had only from Mon-
day through Wednesday to get in
shape for the game, while the Hur-
ricanes had the advantage of Sat-
urday and Sunday to rest up. The
Gators entrained for Miami last
night from Waldo.
Today's game in the famed
Orange Bowl will continue a se-
ries between Florida and Miami
started in 1938. Of the six games
played to date, the Gators nave
won four and dropped two.
Largest margin run up by Flor- :
ida was in 1940 when the Gators
rotted up an impressive 46 to
6 victory. Miami won the open-
er in 1938 by a 19 to 7 amargm
and repeated in 1942 when the
Hurricanes wan a i2 to 0 game.
Early this week Huiricane
Coach Eddie Dunn began a, pes-
simistic train of thought when he
said he was sorry the Gators hac,
lost to Vanderbilt because "they'll
be ready for us to get their re-
venge for the defeat." However,
Dunn had earlier announced that
the Hurricanes would be in "top"
shape for the game.
New Plays Planned
Gator drills this week were em-
phasizing everything from funda-
mentals to pass defense and of-
fense. Backfield Coach Bob Pit-
man expects to pull a few new
plays out of the bag for the Hur-
ricanes while End Coach Spurgeon
.Cherry is sharpening his charges
for any running and passing of-
fense that Miami can produce in
On the line Lieb is drilling his
charges daily in both an offense
and defense designed to stop the

Most of the students on the campus have come to the

'Tne Senminole is a large-scale enterprise. It entails the

,e.d and constantly gro\\uing enirollment. there is a large
I.pol of talent from which to draw the needed editors,
autRists, and otner workers who will constitute the editorial
afn.d business staffs of the Seminole.

WHY DON'T YOU DO RIGHT?
It seems to us that the University student body was
de,'t a "low blow\" by the Univetsity of Miami this week
viwhe;, they got the bright idea that we would need only
2k10 tickets to the Miamni-Florida football game tonight.
Yesterday nmoriing these .00, tickets were sold out
ai'd scores of University students weie faced with the
p.e.3)ect of watching the Gators through a knothole or
s-in'ii:g out more money than they can reasonably af-
fjr.". (It is quite likely too that aU seats will be. taken
b.efo:'e they get a chance it. buy the more expensive tic-
krts.) From the way things look, it should be a great day
fcr the scalpers if enough students strike oil or can bor-
v.. money to leave the knotholes for one of those good
-,d zone seats.
At present, it doesn't seem likely that many students

stration of his talents was in
'in elementary psychology
class. The students had been
prepared for the illustrated
Slecture by a talk given earlier
in the term, outlining pro-
cedures and results obtained
With the help of a young
i ~y student, described by Dr.
.oM.'pson a(. an "excellent sub-
-ect," he employed a method simi-
I:,- to one previously described to
,i dnlice sleep. Then various tasks,
Sxch as the writing of a name
c- ictly as the subject had wr:it-
.L. at the age of six, were un-
,taken. The student was con-
,-. ced that she heard sounds
\ .ich had not been made, that
L-, name was another than her
.,. and wvas made to feel ex-
..-e pain from only slight and
h.;.. >,less contact with a hand.
The most remarkable topic,
however, to the initiates into
'hids aspect of the science of
psychology, was described as
post hypnotic suggestion."
'he subject, while in a state
0)t sleeping, was told that,
after she awoke, she would
reel a certain sensation, such
as thirst, at a specified mo-
unent. There was no hesi-
tancy in the proceedings,
everything flowing smoothly
through the hour-long period.
Dr. Thompson wishes to im-
pr'ess on observers of hypnotic
ic'nonstrations that there is
iOthing unnatural in such a con-
ation, and that it is the result
,u what he terms "extreme sug-
gestibility." He adds that there
a.:e certain criteria which deter-
V'ine susceptibility to such sug-
gestion, and that among these are
i' telligence, maturity, and will-
*-.gness to cooperate.
Dr. Thompson will demonstrate
'.' .,pnosis to the faculty wives
.;',metime late in November. He
i. seen the process used, and
1las at t'mes used it himself in
c(Iical work, to affect inhibi-
tions and break habits, such as
kingn. There is great hope
that time will prove it even a
greater aid to helping the mat-
.adusted than has been the case
x' the past.
