Debate Plans

Discussed At

Monday Smoker
Persons interested in debating
met at a smoker Monday, where
Professor H. P. Constans of the
Speech Department outlined the
purpcees of the Debating team, as
well as the tentative program for
the coming year.
Constans announced there
would be two squads, a Varsity
Debate Squad and ,a University
,College Debate Squad. Each one
would have its own schedule of
events as well as those in which
both would participate, with the
former carrying the better 'part
of .the load.
Five Men Are Back
Five members of last year's var-
sity were introduced by Constans
during the course of the meeting.
These were Jack Murray, Bill Col-
son, Dave Martin, George Moss
and Don Ennat. Cigars were pass-
ed out to all persons attending.
Probable schedule of trips for
the team was enumerated to the
assembled body. The Dixie Tour-
ney and Southern Association of
Teachers of Speech headed a list
of out-of-town treks contem-
'plated. In addition the contests

TEP And Pi Kappa Phi
Contribute 100 Percent
The National War Fund Drive
is progressing on the campus but
"laxity is creeping in," Dean R.
C. Beaty, campus chairman for
the drive, said this week.
Tau Epsilon Phi and Pi Kappa
Phi were the first two fra-
ternities to contribute 100 per
cent. Their contribution, one
dollar from each member, was
received last week. Action re-
garding donations to the drive
is expected to be taken by the
remaining fraternities this week
at their regular Wednesday
night meetings.
Colson Contacts Frats
President of the Student Body
Bill Colson, chairman of the drive
for students, has contacted many
fraternities this week, and ex-
pects to contact all of them before
their meetings Wednesday night.
It is expected that after the slight
mix-up in plans for the fraterni-
ties has been ironed out, their do-
nations will come in.
Monitors in the dormitories
have been working on their
own initiative toward contact-
ing men in their sections.
Monday night, at the general
assembly in the University audi-
torium, names of those organiza-
tions contributing 100 per cent
will be made known.

1945 Seminole

Begins Work
The 1946 Seminole staff got off
to a good start last week, ac-
cording to Dave Sage, editor.
Two meetings have been held,
and organization of the staff is
almost complete.
Plans for this year include
producing a Seminole which will
be a large as those of years when
the student body was full-size.
Several new features are also
planned for the 1946 edition.
Students who are .interested in
working on the staff should come
to the meeting Monday at 7
p.m. in the basement of Florida
Union. The complete staff will

Saurians To Enter

Florida's Fighting Gators left
here this -morning for Alabama
where they will meet their fourth
Southeastern Conference foe in
the highly touted Auiurn Tigers
with whom they will clash in a
Homecoming classic tomorrow af-
Always traditional rivals,
Auburn and Florida will be
meeting for their twenty-second
game since football hostilities
began between the two teams
back in 1912.; Auburn has cop-
ped 11 games in the series
while the Gators have emerged
on top in nine and tied one.
Although Auburn has taken one
SEC tilt and dropped two while
the Gators have evened their tries
at one win, one tie and one loss,
the Tigers, by virtue of more vet-
eran and reserve material will be
_ratcd over the Gato'rs.
But the margin will be slight
for in "six goes" this season the
youthful Gators have dropped only
two games, one to underdog Van-
derbilt, and the second to arch
state rivals, the Miami Hurri-
The only team that both
squads have met is the Tulane
Green Wave. The Gators were
tied by the Wave in the last 30
seconds of p!ay 6-6. This how- ,
ever, is not much of a com-
parison as the field was wet
and the Florida backs were held
down by the sloppy weather.
Auburn Is Heavy
Auburn will put the heaviest
team to face the Gators this sea-

attack on Southwestern 'Louis-

night in which they rolled up a
45 to 0 score, using every mem-
ber of the 42 man squad, Head
Coach Tom Lieb concentrated
on Auburn plays throughout
this week.
Perfect Pass Defense
Perfecting of his pass defense,
and at the same time emphasiz-
ing an improved aerial attack, was
the order of the week. Backfield
Coach Bob Pitman put the back-
field through daily sessions in im-
proving the Gator air attack
while End Coach Spurgeon Cherry
and Lieb concentrated on line
play with a view toward stopping
Auburn's unbalanced line and
man-in-motion style of play simi-
lar to that of the New York
Giant pro outfit.
The squad will be in pretty
good shape with the exception of
Junior Dupree who has spent the
week trying to get rid of a slight
attack of flue. He is expected to
see some action, however.

Special Student

Assembly Set

For Wednesday

First In A Series To
Interpret Tradition

The University's new fall short
term, designed for students, par-
ticularly veterans, who wish to
begin college work before the
next regular semester, will open
Tuesday with registration and
placement tests, R. S. Johnson,
registrar, said today.
For the new term students
will register for one-half the
number of regular courses, but
will meet each course twice
the number of usual hours each
week. Classes will begin Tues-
day and will continue until
January 24. Registration for
regular second semester begins
January 26.
Courses Announced
The course will cover basic
courses in the professional field
as well as work on the freshman
level. Such courses include work
in mathematics, chemistry, agri-
culture, economics, public finance,
transportation, education, health
and physical education, industrial
arts education, engineering draw-
ing and mechanics.
Johnson explained that it will
not be possible to begin all sub-
jets offered by the University,
but all students will be accom-
modated as much as possible.
Law classes will not be avail-
able for the short course, he
lie added.
Veterans wives may register
at the University, under provisions
made by the last legislature, pro-
vided they meet the entrance re-
quirements and their registration
runs concurrently with that of
their husbands.

Let's show our spirit at the
Georgia -game by sitting on
the fifty-yard line and cheer-
ing the team on to victory.
All who can wear rat caps.
Florida Pep Club

Based upon a "decalog" of fun-
damental principles, a program
designed to enable Greek-letter
fraternities to function most
effectively in postwar campus
and community life-and, in the
process, to render substantial
service to war veterans return-
ing to school-was outlined re-
cently by Verling C. Enteman,
Newark attorney and chairman
of the National Interfratcrnity
Conference. The conference en-
rolls 60 nats.nal fraternities.
In a resolution already adopt-
ed by its executive committee,
Mr. Enteman pointed out, the con-
ference has urged that, as a
means of enlarging fraternity
membership, local and national

Western Union

Service Installed

operator has been employed and
student assistants of the Flor-

messenger service to dormitory
rooms, classrooms, and offices
on the campus and to fraternity
houses and residences in the vi-

To Be Delivered
The sub-station, located in the
Union building across from the
information desk, will be open for
sending and receiving messages
from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. When
students are not in their rooms to
receive messages sent to the dor-
mitories, a card is placed on the
door knob deferring the recipient
to the Florida Union where he
may pick up his message. Should
the student not receive his notice
before 5:30, he may call at the
information desk any time before
10 p.m. and receive his message
from the student on duty. Should
the student not be in a position to
come by the Union building, he
may call either University Exten-
sion 17 or 85 and have his mes-
sage read to him.
'The Florida Union is glad to
be able to offer this service to
the University and any criti-
cisms or suggestions that any-
one may have which would in-
crease the efficiency of the op-

eliminate "the old collegiate snob-

manifestation of the democracy
for which the war was waged."

Appoints Co-Ed


Carleton Addresses
Group At Meeting

Florida Blue Key, .campus lead-
ership fraternity, started the ball
rollingg for coeducation at the Uni-
versity in 1947 Tuesday night
vhen they voted to adopt this is-
:ue as a project.
Meeting for the first time
since their reactivation earlier
this year, Florida Blue Key was
addressed by William G. Carle-
ton on the "Spirit of Blue Key"
who outlined the principles and
ideals upon which Florida Blue
Key was founded and issued a
challenge to the newly reacti-
vated fraternity to reassume
their program of unbiased lead-
ership and service to the UnVi-,,
versity. Prof. H. P. 'Constans,
toastmaster for the occasion, in-
troduced 'Carleton.
Following the speech, a business
meeting was held in which thir-
teen new pledges and Florida Blue
Key alumni members in the
Gainesville ared were introduced.
Murray Appointed Chairman
Jack Murray, prominent in the
coeducation movement on the cam-
pus last year, was appointed chair-
man of a committee on coeduca-
tion and was instructed to begin
work on its organization and to
draw up actual plans for the pro-
,ram t. bring girls to the Univer-
The coeducation movement
will come to a head in the next
session of the State Legislature
wilch meets in 1947. In the last
session at lallahassee, bills for
coeducation were introduced in
both houses of the Legislature
but were defeated when a com-
amittee of the House nf Repre-
sentatives returned an unfavor-
able report to the House, thus
necessitating a two-thirds vote
to bring the question to the
tloior to be voted upon.
Backed by the state organiza-
tion cf Jaycees and the Gaines-
ville Chamber of Commerce, and
led on the campus by the ACCS-
Action Committee for Coeducation
through Students-the movement
reached its highest point and
rarely failed of becoming reality.

Besides coeducation, F 1 o r i d a

operate in a program by the Honor

Florida Blue Key has started the drive to bring co-.
education to the Uiniversity campus. We can help to,
make" the drive a success. We can bring coeducation to
tWe campus in 1947 if every student c'odperates with
Fl'o.'da Blue Key in obtaining this desirable objective. .
'The next ten years are going to be a crucial time for
the University. The issie as to whether the University
will take its rightful place as the leading, e'ducati6hal in-
slititu'tion of Florida and one of the county's o'ttstanding
sihqols faces us. What are.we going to.do about ijt?
'There are many things which can be 'dhne. We can
put Florid-a'on the same footing wiith the other great state
univi'rsities, whi*h are overwhelmingly c'o'educionial.
With cdeducation, Florida c'obuld haVe a University
of 1,0,000 students. Many benefits are bound to follow
from large .'student body. 'A first clas's Ta'dulite school
coiild be built .. .. a championshipp football team even
-qom's as a possibility.
The University of North 'Carolina tdday enjo-s the
reputation of being the great liberal s'hora 'tic center of
the South. With a large and active student body, there
seems no reason why the University.of Florida should not
share this reputation. There is no r'eAson Why 'he Uni-'
v-:rity should not become the greatest university ,of the
deep South.

S fmibodied in the, traditio6is an'd spirit 'of 'the UTniversity
ofi lorida is the Honor Systen. Oi'sa was one of.the
v~r.v first schools in the country to conceive of, ohe, and
w.e' have continued through the yeais. as one of the out-
stair~ding examples of its sticcess and value.
The Honor System is too much of a reality to be m'iad'e
light of. Our entire system of student self-government
and student responsibility rests on its tenets. Our license
to. point with some degree of prid' t:6 our Alma.. Mater in
Spai't stems from this same system.
\ The Honor System works in both large and small
cases. Although the average freshman is likely to be
skeptical of the sincerity of .such a system after years
under the eagle gaze of his high school mentors, he is
expected to learn soon that it is reciprocal--that h'e will
not be guarded, that h-e will hot be questioned, that. his
.honesty in all ca.es tuntil.,proved guilty is a ba-ic assump-
tion. .... *
in Under the Honor .System a box of apples is placed
in a hall so that students mAy buy one whenever they
please without the bother of 'a clerk. Under the Honor
System a class of three or a class 'f three hundred is left
:dIi'ne to be tested on its scholastic ,chieveimnts and to
hione'stly record the extent Of its. l e'arnihg.
Such a thing cannot b'e downed byskeptics. It as-
sumnes both that most people ar'e just in their conduct and
thinking, and that they' will do their best to, prevent the
lariinriig of their own interests. A. Florida man who signs
han oath on his honor is involving the honor' of his Univer-
ity asiwell as his own. .,
vMiuch is at stake tday' -as many groups 'unite to build
t go~ re,' Llnier sitiy." The b'asiis of student success is 'the
h tls keep e I : ble ished.
;-?; Let's keep it unblemished.

What Others Think
Greek Lefteis l'Meet Challenge
'- Ahong casualties Of World War II, list the Amnerican Greek-
letter fraternity. And, among postwar developuient to be watched
with interest, list the co-operative efforts of the leading national fra-
ternifties to rehabilitate the fraternity chapter as an instrument of ser-
vice to its members 'and to the institution at which it is situated.
On the home-front side, the Greek-letter fraternity's difficulties
antedate the late World War. The fraternity 'has .been criticized just-
ly or unjustly on the -score of its alleged snobbfshniess; the mental
anguish iti inflicted, if unwittingly, 'upon those students it refrained
from inviting to join; and, until the.fraternities began a number of
years ago to hump themselves to correct th is matter, criticized on the
score of the fraternity's decelerating effect upon its members' pursuit
of scholarship. .. w iw,,
And on the fighting-front side, th'e Greek-letter fraternity suffered
during the war-as did colleges and universities, themselves-through
the draining-off of manpower and through the conversion of facilities
to war uses. While chapter memberships dwindled, chapter houses
were commandeered and converted into war-use dormitories.
Now comes the National Interfraterriity Conference, which enrolls
sixty national Greek-lette'r fraternities, with a postwar program de-
signed to enable the fraternity chapter to function most effectively in
campus and community life, render substantial service to War veterans
returning to school-and, in the process, establish itself in a new po-
sition of campus and gereral-public esteem.
Flank No. 1 in the conference's platforir is the 'elimination of "the
old collegiate snobbery" by broadening fraternity membership so that
r'etirning veterans, as well as students who have nhot lbeen in the aimed
services, "will find on the campuses a true manifestation of the de-
mociacy for which the war was waged." Against that objective, crit-
ic's of ithe "fraternity system" will find it difficult to throw rocks.
How nearly the fraternities, through the labors of their conference,
w.il approach their goal only time, of course, can tell. But from this
distance it Would seem that no fair-minded p'e'rsh v.'ouTd deny that
they have sensed their present-day responsl5ii'tles 'and und'er'taken,
energetically, to fitltrl them.
N'tnorial tnter-Frat'erit'y Conferehce'.




Last week 'we touched briefly on the recently announced re-,
port on tnie evaluation of credits for courses pursued in the armed
forces. The problem is admittedly a complex one. However, we'd
like to discuss two points of general policy brought tip in cohnec-
' tioh With the report.
Let's Look The Situation Over
One of the principles enunciated and reaffirmed throughout the re-
port stated that no duplication of credit would be allowed. The other
guiding principle states that credit granted for courses pursued in the
armed forces must be applicable to the student's degree objective.
Let's consider the first principle: no duplication of credit.. No
duplication 'of credit, narrowed down, means that a, student will
not receive credit for a course taken in the army which is simi-
lar in quantity and quality to one taken in college either pre-
vious to or after his army service. To illnuslrate this point, let's
look at a concrete example. A student who took physics in the
General College before entering the service and then took a simi-
lar course in the ATP would not upon r.-1riiiiine ta the University
be granted credit for the physics he ii., in .VTrP.
A great deal of such duplication actually occurred, notably in the
The logic of not giving credit in such cases is unavoidable. Giving
double credit for a course would amount to making a mere gift of
credit hours which carried to an extreme would reduce a degree to a
mere scrap of paper symbolic of nothing.
Credits Must Apply To Degree
The second principle mentioned stated that credits granted must
be applicable to the student's degree objectIve. In other words cred-
its must help fulfill either the elective or required course credits for,
the degree toward which a veteran is working.'; ,Let's unravel that
statement by considering the following hypothetical case.
A veteran is working toward a degree" in business administra-
tion. While in the service, he attended aviation mechanics school
and is eligible for a certain number of hours of credit for the
courses he took. It's not hard to see that being an aviation me-
chanic could have little or no applicability to accounting. Ob-
viously the credit could not be used for any of the requirements
for a degree in business administration. If the student has any
electives, it would be up to the 'committee of the college concerned,
to determine if this credit could be used for elective hours.
Certainly credits or even degrees are worthless if the graduate is
unable to do the work for which the degree supposedly qualifies him.
The registrar's office has had to deal with numerous cases similar
to those mentioned above and will doubtless have to settle many more
in the years to come.
.We have attempted to consider one small phase of the problem in
rather general tone. The topic will be discussed further in some fu-
ture column.
Aside to G.I.: We hope you've weathered the academic bar-
rage down to .this point. In regard to the athletic apparatus you
iinquired about, we've been informed that the old gym is in the
process of being renovated. Consequently most of the equipemefit
is stored away or rundown. However, some of it is usable. We
suggest you see Coach 'Genovar in the old gym. In regard to the n'o
smoking rule on the second floor of Florida Union, you've uncov-
ered an interesting situation. Expect an editorial on the subject

Saurian Slants

Fred Hogan, Weldon Wright, and Harry Hobbs starred as the Flor-
ida Gators registered an impressive 45-0 win over SLI. The first tWo
mentioned put on a brilliant running attack all night, while the lat-
ter's line backing was superb throughout the contest.
The Gators seemed to hit old form in the game as SLI was never
a match for them. The Gators have had what it took all season but
have just failed to cash in on the breaks.
Sid Martin In F-Club
Sid Martin, athletic trainer for University teams, was elected an
honorary member of the F-Club at the last session Thursday night.
Sid was assistant trainer to Dr. Manchester, former trainer, in 1942
and has assumed full responsibility this year.
Martin has been a great asset in working with the boys and has
kept their spirit up this season.
Mortellaro To Lead Gators
Paul Mortellaro, who has improved greatly all season, has been
chosen by Head Coach Tom Lieb to captain the Gators against Au-
burn. Paul started the season at right tackle but has been shifted to
left tackle. ""4Mx I'
The Gators are up against a tough opponent in Auburn, but the
boys acquired a lot of spirit last week and are all out for a Gator win.
Where Is the School Spirit?
How about all you Florida men cheerfin.g the Gators to victory?
We don't believe that you are hoarse already. The support in. thi
last two games has been very sad indeed.
S6 Fldrida men, let's have full attendance and cheer for the Ga-
tors win, dloe, or draw.

Loters To The Editor
Dear Mr. Editor:
I:t is gratifying to see so many people trying out for the Florida
Players, and the subsequent interest that has been shownv in the three
and one act p.ays to be presented this semester. It seems to me that

college drhinaLics contribute a lot to college life bth to those par-
ticipating and to those comprising the audience. Needless to say thLe
members of the production and acting angle have a lot 'of fun sLaging
a Ilbay.
In reply to h recent letter in the Gator saying to the effect, "If
you're going to put on comedy, cion't comedize a good serious dramatic
i reduction'," I say, be sure to see the three one-act.plays to be present-
od by Florida Players tonight in P. K. Yonge auditorium.
Pat O'Neal
All 'the tilk and'i Writing in s'0rtL., colui'ns throughout the sAlte
'.aL ut a lot i lloiGr'ida boys gil'g toi other seliol(.1 to play footGall, 'has
i ini'erested me no end. The rea.so'Ts l.ut forth for the minor or less
masss migration of Florida ir'w1, school athletes to out of state
..cliJ.l has been two-fold:
F 1irst, be-ause som e other schools are more specialized than the
University in certain departments; and second, because other schools
offer r more lucrative scholarships.
Those are two very gbod reasons why we lose out .on many
a good football prospect, and only rightly so.
But we 'as students overlook the fact at times'that. We, each 6f
us, can be a o6e-mian publicity department as regards encouraging
lboys to 'cone to. the University of Florida. You can get as good
an education here a.s anywhere in the country, which is a fact that
many L. \s overlook in selecting a college or university.
Another fact overlooked by many, is the value of earning a repu-
.atioh in thle state in which you are to reside and engage in business.
A loy who comes to. the,, University and stars in-football' let us
say-will have already helped establish himself in the hearts of Flori-
dians; whereas he would have less start had he starred at ah
out-of-state school.
In other w6'rds, I'd .like to tell all boys who have contemplated
going out of state, to first look over the athletic opportunities in your
.wn state.

ference's 1945 general meeting,
scheduled to be held November
23 and 24.
Briefly, the principles upon
which the interfraternity confer-
ence is basing its postwar plans
are these:
"1. The goal of the college fra-
ternity, in harmony with the goal
of the college, is to provide
training and discipline of the in-
dividual who, in seeking an edu-
caton, desires to make of himself
a useful member of society, pos-
sessing knowledge, trained skill,
and capacity for accomplishment.
"2. The college fraternity must
regard itself as an integral part
of the institution in which it is
situated. It not only must be
amenable to the rules and regu-
latons of the college institution,
but inust also share in all the
college responsibilities of the un-
"3. The college fraternity is
also a business organization. Suc-
cessful management req uires
sound financial. practices and good
housekeeping methods.
"4. The college fraternity stands
for excellence in scholarship. It
seeks, as a part of its college, to
promote diligent application to
study by the fraternity, member,
not only in order that the re-
quirements of the college be met,
but also that achievement above
the average level may be main-
"5. The college fraternity ac-
cepts its role in the individual's
moral and spiritual development.
"6. The college fraternity rec-
ognizes that culture goes hand
in. hand with educationand, there-
fore, seeks to broaden the fra-
ternity member's growth by en-
couraging t h e acquisition of
knowledge and training in cul-
tural subjects.
"7. The college fraternity is the
center of the individual member's
social life. It seeks to develop
the social graces, the art of good
living, the development of cour-
tesy and kindness.
"8. The college fraternity rec-
ognizes the importance of its
members' physical well-being.
"9. The college fraternity as-
sumes civic responsibilities. The
chapter house is a training ground
for good citizenship.
"10. Th e college fraternity
seeks to develop those qualities
of human, understanding, of com-
panionship, of kindness, with a
knowledge and training in ap-
praisig the basic value of life,
that will lead toward a better
civilization, with peace and un-
derstanding among all peoples."

Professor C. E. Mounts of the
English Department is leading a
group of men interested in creative
writing each Tuesday night on the
third floor of Language Hall.
Mounts emphasizes that this is
not an organization for persons
who are interested only in the fun-
damentals of writing or in learn-
ing the bases of composition. A
nucleus of persons with at least
mild literary ambitions is desired
with the possibility' in mind of a
new student literary magazine in
the near future.
Thus far approximately half a
dozen students and others have
submitted origihal material to Dr.
Mounts office, where it is picked
up by all the members for
eventual discussion and intensive
criticism at the Tuesday night
Any person interested in cre-
ative writing in a serious manner
is always welcome to attend the
meetings, Mounts said, and is-
equally welcome to become a
member at any time.

Foremost cn the agenda will be
planning for the National Meth-
odist Student Conference at the
University of Illinois at Urbana.
About 1,200 students and leaders
will gather there to discuss three
aspects of their job ahead, 1) The
Crisis of Our Age, 2) What We
Believe, and 3) The Church at
Work in This World. The state of
Florida has been allowed only 25
students and faculty. Eight stu-
dents and two adults will repre-
sent the University of Florida.
Schools Attending
Colleges and universities who
will attend the planning confer-
ence this week-end are: Florida
State College for Women, Tampa
University, St. Petersburg Junior
College, Stetson University at De
Land, Florida Southern College at
Lakeland, the University of Flor-
ida, and possibly Miami Univer-
The officers of the Methodist
State Student Movement are Co-
mer Woodall, president; Pat Cleve-
land (U. of Fla.), vice president;
Stella Carter, St. Pete 'Jr. College,
secretary and treasurer.,
The program for the .planning
conference gets under way Friday
night with an executive meeting.
Saturday will be given over to a
business meeting and recreational
contests, between the various col-

any particular church. But the
ministers and religifios leaders,
one and all, want it known that
they are ready and happy to
meet students, hear. about them,
help them, and be their friends.

in the Florida Union game room,
it was reported yesterday.
Florida Union, sponsor of this
annual affair, has endeavored each
year to offer to the students such
an event that would bring about
the trickiest cue pushers of the
campus. The main purpose, how-
ever, of the local tournaments is
to find out the top pool and bil-
liard players on campus in order
that a University billiard team
may be formed to play in the Na-
tional' inter collegiate tourna-
Registration Begins
Registration for the local tour-
nament will begin Monday and
will continue through Friday, No-
vember 16. Registration blanks
will be available at the Florida
Union desk and from the student
in charge in the game room. Only
students paying the student ac-
tivity fee will be allowed to com-
pete. Tournament games will be
played free of charge.
Further notices and rules of
the tournament will be posted
on the bulletin board in the
game room, and everyone enter-
ing is asked to register prompt-
Separate tournaments will be
held in pocket, straight rail, and
-three cushion billiards with the
'winner in each receiving a medal.
Bill Rion, 1943 winner of the Na-
tional Intercollegiate Three-Cush-
ion title, copped all three tourna-
ments last year.

the ground floors of almost every

building on the campus, where
hungry students congregate to
drop their nickles in the boxes

THE FLORIDA ALIGATOR Gainesville, Fla., Nov. 2, 1945


This week end it appears that
the members of Fraternity Row
will trek to the various parts of
Florida and the adjoining states.
The largest delegations will be
heading for Auburn for the game
with the Alabama Polytechnic
Institute tomorrow. This promises
to be an excellent game and the
spectators should be well reward-
ed for their long journey.
Many more Greeks and would-
be Casanovas are heading to Tal-
lahassee where the famous Flor-
ida State College for Women is
located. The members of Chi
Omega and Pi Beta Phi are hav-
ing a formal dance tomorrow
night at 8 in the Rowing Long-
mire Building. Invitations were
sent out to all the fraternities
and there more than likely will be
a tremenodus response, to the
happiness of the lassies of Talla-
In the past week there have
been a couple of initiations. Jim
Montgomery has been added to
the ranks of the Phi Gambs, and
the Pi Lams initiated Leo Oshe-
roff and Ed Klein. Wednesday
the Betas are admitting John
Wilcox to the Light of the Three
In addition to these initiations
there has been some recent pledg-
ing with Dick Newman donning
the Sigma Chi pledge pin. The
newest pledge to wear the Beta's
Three Stars is Buddy Ellison.
SPEs' new pledges are Charles
Lockyer, Jimmy Peele, J. P.
Perry, Mardis Meyer, Harold

the tradition was interrupted by
the war. Now again, the Apple
Box takes its place among Flor-
ida's cherished traditions.

Here's Secret Of

How Alligator Is

In response to queries on how
the Alligator was printed in its
somewhat inadequate .offices, and
where, if anywhere, the press was
hidden, Editor Johnny Walker re-
minded the curious of the Alli-
gator's junior partnership with the
Gainesville Daily Sun.
Each Thursday afternoon after
lunch an already' weary little
group of prospective proof-readers
and headline-writers troop down
to the Sun offices across the street
from the downtown post office to
work on the actual production of
the finished Alligator.
'This group often includes the
editor and his higher-ups them-
selves, due to a chronic and ever-
lasting shortage of helpers on this
end of the work. There efforts last
until the supper hour when enough
misprints have usually been caught
