This Week

Plans Drawn
For New Gym

The University's postwar build.-
ing program was beginning to
take shape here this week as
architectural plans for a new
$750,000 gymnasium, armory and
exposition building were started.
Dr. John J. Tigert, president,
omttiining the building program,

cussion of plans for the partially
self.liqudating gymnasium, ap-
proved by the Board of Control,
were under way as the first step
in the building program that will
add new facilities and construc-
tion on the campus.
The gymnasium, long needed
toi replace a temporary frame
building constructed in in 1927,
will be financed in part from
student fees and receipts from
athletic events and the Univer-
sity Athletic Department.
Designed to take care of all in-
door contests and at the same time
serve as an armory and exposition
building, the gymnasium will
house federal military equipment,
and all athletic equipment and.
Location Being Decided
Location of the building is be-
ing decided by officials and an
architect, appointed by the Board
of Control, is on the campus to
help dlraw preliminary plans. W.
Kenney Miller is acting as associ-
ate architect with Guy Fulton,
BOard of Control architect, in
preparation of the plans.
"'Other new buildings proposed"
to be built in the near future in-
clhde: A livestock pavilion, ad-
dition to the dairy laboratory,
dormitory facilities designed to
take care of veterans and their
families, a new classroom build-
ing, addition to the library and
completion of the Florida Union
The livestock pavilion has been
approved by the Board of Control,
the State Budget Commission, the
State Improvement Commission
arid the Board of Commissioners
of State Institutions, arid construc-
tion may be expected at an early
date, Dr. Tigert said.

Pool Tournament

Starts Monday

University Participates
For Ninth Year
The University of Florida begins
its ninth year as a participant in
the International Collegiate Pool
Tournament Monday. The com-
petition got its start in this Uni-
versity eight years ago with the
opening of the Florida Union, and
since has been one of the out-
zt.i,.dirn events of the year.
Disbanded Last .Year
Though disbanded last year
because of wartime conditions,
the International Collegiate
Pool Tournament will once
again take its 'place as a chal-
lenge to all pool sharks in all
college unions throughout the
There are estimated to be twen-
ty able contestants in the Uni-
versity who will battle among
themselves for the first five places
on the University of Florida bil-
liard team. The five lucky winners
will play for the international
championship. The team will play
by wire. This means that the tour-
nament will be played on an honor
system, and will have a referee
to supervise.
At the completion of the tour-
nament the referee will total
the scores of each player by
respective innings, attain the
grand total team score, immedi-
ately telegraph the final score,
in player's inning form, together
with grand total team scores to,
the Association of College Un-
ions headquarters.
Won Two In 1942
In 1942, Florida won two troph-
ies for billiards. 'One of the troph-
ies was for pocket billiards, the
other for three cushion billiards.
Florida has two outstanding mem-
bers of the 1944 team, Bill Rioni
and Frank Valcarcel, who stand
ready to defend this championship.
Rion hails from Palatka, and is
Florida's local champ in three
cushion billiards. Valcarcel, who
runs a close second with Rion,
comes to us from Lima, Peru, and
will be tournament manager this
year. Both will supervise the tour-
nament for the newcomers.

Best C-3 Themes

To Be Printed

In Alligator
Beginning with this issue the
Alligator is reviving an old and
popular feature, "Freshman Says."
In this column the Alligator will
print the best freshman theme of
the week, a paper selected by a
special committee, from among
those submitted by the C-3 Labor-
atory instructors.
The themes will be selected ,n
the basis of literary merit and
with a view to general reader in-
terest. At the most only minor
technical revisions will be made
in the selected themes, and the
ideas and opinions will remain
those of the freshman author.
Naturally, limitations of space
will permit the printing of only
one theme each week. When more
than one deserving paper is sub-
mitted, the names of the authors
will be printed under an Honorable
Mention head.

'Gator Government' Column

Sponsored By A/ligator

So many questions concerning the whys and wherefores of Florida
Student Government have come to this office that the Gator is intro-
ducing a new information feature, "Gator Government." Beginning
with the next issue, the column will run your questions on any and all
phases of student government and publications.
Gene Baroff, who is handling the feature, will refer as many ques-
tions as the column can handle to the proper student body officer or
agency. Their answers, along with the questions, will be printed in
the column. If we can't clear you up, then we just don't know-.
If you have any questions you would like to have answered on the
honor code, the Lyceum Council, the Student Senate, or-pardon us -
the Alligator, or any other phase of student government, leave the
question along with your name and campus address at the Gator Box,
.Florida Union aesk. If you don't want to see your name in print,
we'll be glad to leave it out, but we must have it for our own records.
It may be, of course, that we'll be so swamped with questions that
it may take some time to get around to yours. Don't tear your hair.
We'll get to it as soon as we can. Questions will be handled as we get
them, unless they are so timely they have toa be answered at once.

Nelson Named

Managing Editor

Of Alligator
The vacancy in the position of
managing editor of the Alligator,
created by Dave Sago's resigna-
tion to become editor of the 1946
Seminole, was filled this week by
appointment of Ted Nelson, former
executive editor.
Nelson joined the Alligator staff
in the fall of 1944 as a reporter
and author of the column Bull
Session. He continued in that po-
sition until summer of that year,
when Al Alexander's graduation

War Fund Drive

Closes Below

$3,000 Quota

Campus Contributes
$1,500 To Fund
The campus con:r::ution to the
Natioral War Fund drive fell
slightly below half the $3,000
quota as the drive terminated
Wednesday noon.
The University faculty, stu-
dents and employees contributed
$1 494.90 to the drive.. This sum
includes the contributions of all
the campus organizations.
"The drive began in town be-
fore it was started on the cam-
pus." Dean R. C. Beaty, chair-
man of the drive for the cam-
pus, said this week. "Many of
the faculty members and other
persons who live off campus
were solicited by organizations
in town. Contributions w e r e
given by those persons who live
off campus and credit was giv-
en to the town drive. How much
was given, we have no way of
knowing. The most important
thing is-the drive! was a suc-
cess on the campus."
Dean Beaty expressed his ap-
preciation to all those who have
given something toward making
the drive successful.
Fraternities contributing 100
per cent this week were Sigma Al-
pha Epsilon, Phi Gamma Delta,
Alpha Gamma Rho, and Alpha
Tau Omega.

A field trip on foot, girded by
Dr. C. E. Mounts, will leave the
east steps of the Florida Union
promptly at 7 a. m. tomorrow.
The expedition includes an in-
spection of the Bivin's Arm sanc-
tuary by boat and culminates in
a picnic lunch at Colclough's Hill.
Return will be effected well before
the football game.

To The Students And Faculty

Ofr The University Of Floridd:

The calendar for the. 1945-46 academic year was pre-
pared before. the war ended and while travel was restrict-
ed. Under these conditions the one day holiday for
iThanksgiving was appropriate. It now seems desirable
'to return to the former policy of the week-end holiday.
Therefore, classes will be. suspended Thursday, Friday and
Saturday, November 22, 23 and 24. To offset the class
time lost the final examination period will begin January
16 rather than January 14. The first semester will end
January 24 as scheduled.

Nesbitt Attends

National IFC

Plans To Submit
Resolution Favorable
To Fraternities
W. C. Nesbitt, president of the
Florida chapter of the Inter-Fra-
ternity Conference, will represent
that organization at the meeting
of the National Conference in New
York City on November 22-24.
This is the first time that the Uni-
versity has had a representative
at the annual meeting since 1941.
The three-day conference will
probably be devoted to' the discus-
sion of the post-war program of
the fraternities and their place in
college life. Since fraternities
have recently been the subject of
much criticism from many period-
icals, the Florida delegate plans to
introduce to the conference the
idea of launching a pro-fraternity
campaign in national publications.
The meeting will be highlighted
Friday night when a Victory Ban-
quet will be given at the Waldorf.
President Harry S. Truman, a re-
cent initiate of Lambda Chi Alpha,
will be guest speaker.

Dr. Tigert explained that the

ed before the war had ended
while travel restrictions were

Thanksgiving as an official holi-
He said that now that the war
had ended it seemed appropriate
to return to the pre-war policy of

sity conforming to action by the

the period beginning November 22.
To offset the class time lost by
the new holiday the final exami-

To Stay Open

For Night Hours
Klein H. Graham, University
business manager, yesterday con-

fountain service in the Florida Un-
ion soda shop until 9 p. m. every

Graham stated that it had been
the policy of the establishment to

one time, but that this service was
discontinued as student patronage
dropped off because of reduced en-
Tal Murray, secretary-treasurer
of the student body, made the re-

Graham was able to add that the

dependent upon the volume of stu-

On special occasions, such as
after a Union dance, the shop may
be kept .open until even a later

Two weeks, ago the Alligator ,printed an editorial on
the. Honor System. In that article mention was made
that th,.-. system applied to the big and to the little, to
both the all-important and less significant aspects of Uni-
versity life..'
'One remark inserted in that editorial hailed one of
the best-known evidences of student cooperation in carry-
ing out the honored traditions of the .University. Since
Sthat ti.m1e that tradition, and the entire system upon which
it s based, has be'.en fliagraritlly violated.'
The matter involved is that of the apple boxes. Each
day, at several centrally located p,Qints, a dumber of fresh
new apples a "e- placed for the convenience of students.
The custom and understanding, has always been to de-
posit five cents in the. box irpmediately after removing a
piece of fruit. The intentional violation of this under-
\standing is unpl)ardonable.
PeI'haips We were. mistaken in agsumiing that support
of this prd.iiect and: the framework of custom and common
dcency. which it represents is universally understood. If
we were it was indeed a serious error.
fTlhe feeling, of,- those' who first 9un,4 o.ut that money
yasq being- stolen from the apple boxes was one of serious
disgracei to the entire student bod.y. Perhaps if every
ran bc",omes consciouss :of the: crime it will cease.. It
5',,uld be. fst,_,rd, immediately. The "'candy from a
thaby" tech0iu.1u, -of the guil y party or parties can prob-
*,bly t.e detected.' '
If this be taken as an alert, all the better. Sometimes
a, alei'" is. necessary. a1 watchful organization superior to
a dormant one. .V-itfh a return to fairly normal, times
in, the offing, this is the wQst possible moment to pass
Igihtly- over te actions of violators of Florida's cherished
code of conduct. *
An added note might be. made here. The, apple boxes
are not' the product 'of the., usual Variety of profitable
enterprise. All earnings go towaqs pulitlig several men
01'ouglh college. The individual who rernoves the few
nickels and dimes .also reduces" some man's chances for
a4. education.

NumerotLs high school athletic sweaters with letters
attached are being worn, on the campus, mostly by fresh-
mer' who have not as ye,t read the "F" 'Book where it defi-
neitey states 'that no, high school athletic sweaters are to
be worn if letters, are attached.
If they were allowed to be worid the campus would
be like a state without sovereignty, as cooperation would
be mostly individualized between the different high
school. and as a result the Univ ersity would suffer.
The "E" Club, will be authorized to. remove, any let-
ters froqn the sweaters,, and. all high school, athletic award
winiliers are urged to come out for the. athletic teams

Football Seatsq
.. Who said Gator football' was for University of Florida students ?
Why is it that not enough tickets were set aside for students going to.
tle Georgia-Florida game? Why are there not enough date tickets?
It seems that the athletic department has again sone commercial. But
the University of Florida apparently is not like other schools that
pommercialize foo''.all. There seems to be little evidence that "selling

winging story is selected l:y the C-3 Departirent Staffl.
With or without the blackout, it is pitch dark in England at two
o'clock in the morning. Down on the flight line the crew chiefs are
tired after an entire night sent checking and repairing the ships.
It is cold and wet, and the rain continues to fall. The charge of quar'-
ters trudges through the mud and slush to awaken the men, maybe
for the last time. Green and veteran crews alike have been lying
awake waiting in grim anticipation. Each man wonders if maybe
his crew has been scratched from the flight plan during the night.
As the charge 'of quarters steps into the hut, he switches on the
lights, goes to the bed of each man scheduled for the mission, and

ing is given by the base weather man. The men are then divided into
groups for special briefings. The pilots receive taxi and take-off in-
utructions. The navigators receive iheadinggs, winds, and other navi-
gation data. Each cr-w member is thoroughly briefed for his part
)f the missibun.
Before the take-off each member checks the equipment responsible
to him. If the ship is not in perfect condition or cannot ::e put in per-
fect condition, the crew is assigned to another ship. The pilots start
their engines at the assigned time and taxi into take-off position. It
is almost clay eight as the first bomber leaves the ground. One by one
the other planes follow in thirty-second intervals. As hne bombers
climb to the briefed altitude of assembly, bright colored flares guide
the:,, to their own group. !Each group and squadron is assigned an

Better Band
Many probably have wondered why the band doesn't sound better
t-han it does, or why there are only 35; m embers out for the football
games. A pep parade Is scheduled only 10. or 15. band members turn
out. All this is due to the lack of support and cooperation from stu-
dent musicians.
With the enrollment as high as it novw ia, the University should
easily have a, 0 or 75 piece band. Even those who are enrolled in
the band do not come to practice regularly. Only the faithful few are
there day after, day. Professor. BJown cannot build a good band if he
has no musicians.
Bob McCorkle, band manager, works hard to arrange a trip, only
to find tha, .four days 9ut of th9 yewk the band cannot perfect its
dri.s because there, aren't enough people present to march. It's very
discouraging to the director and th,. ones who do come to practice to
find that they may as well hav'e stayed home
The Fighting Gator Band was, at one time, one of the best in the
South with 100 mcmbcrs., It was an organization to which we could
po9nt with prid. Let;'s not let it run down to the point where we're

Pi Lams Take Doubles
The favored- Pilams came through this year defeating the SAE
combine to again win the dou' les title in ping pong. After scoring
very quickly in the opening match the Pilams slacked off and played
a very steady game.
Outstanding were the terrific shots made by Don Eanett, a mem-
ber of last year's team, against the SAE's who could not return all the
"chops" he put over the net. A newcomer into the intramural ping
pong, Gerry Gordon, showed fine offensive play. The losing combine
of Loomis and Soune d.efated. the teams of BTP, SX, Ansbacher-Ka-
hanna, ATO before entering the finals. The Pilams proved superior to
the teams of PDT, SN, AGR. The scores of the final match were:
21-5; 21-14; and 21-16.
This completes ping pong for the year and the next sport will be
touch football. This will start Monday, when the teams of ATO-TEP;
PKP-SX; Inter-Americatr-Pi Lambda Phi; and Newman Club will meet.
The Blackfeet are favored over the TEPs and the Pilam-Int.-Amer-
ican game should prove exciting. Football will be held only on Mon-
day and Tuesday next week due to the Thanksgiving vacation but will
continue Monday, November. 26th.
PK. Defeats SAE
Outplayed in the first game, a rejuvenated Pike team came back
later Wednesday evening and toppled the SAE's in a vigorous fashion,
21-12. for the Intra-Mural basketball championship.
From the very outset the PKA's proved that they were going to
be the team to overcome, scoring 11 points in the first quarter to
the SAE's 2.
Settling down after compiling this margin of security, the Pikes
played a more defensive game, although they did garner 10 additional
points before the timekeeper's horn signaled the end of the game
It was evident, however, that the SAE team did not possess the
sparkle and life which they had shown in their first encounter with
the Pikes, winning 29-26.
The members of the winning team are: Dave and Don French,
Glenn Jones Dave Sargent, Lew Marshall, Eddie Swan, and Fred
Kushner, while the opposition consisted of Jim Loomis, Bill Byrd, Don
Jung, Lee Worley, Burton Oliver, Billy McElmurray, Bill Colson,
Charles Bostwick, Jack Mueller and Robert Shade.
At the conclusion of the tournament the following ten men were
chosen as an All Campus Squad. Officials and Student Director Ab-
bey Fink were on the committee selecting the team.
Dave French (PKA) was the unanimous choice for. captain of the
mythical team. The other selections were as follows: Glen Jones
(PKA), Jim Loomis, (SAE), Lee Worley (SAE), Pete Hartsaw (ATO),
Conrad Delgado (DTD), Billy Wynne (PDT), Joe Clemente (Inter-
American), Bill Lubel (PLP), and Cameron Dowling (KA).
Inter-Americans Take Ping Pong
And the paddles swung! This is not to be associated with a main
preoccupation of the fraternity houses tut instead the activities in
our ping pong tournament which got under way Monday afternoon.
Rather than wait an additional day to play off the finals, the two
semi-finalists, Bill Rion and Pilo Braschi, for PDT and Inter-Ameri-
cans respectively, mutually agreed in their desire to complete the
final games Monday evening.
With smooth, beautiful, long lasting' playing on the part of these
two men, attracting the interest and' amazement of the audience, it
was an exciting match to witness. Applause was frequent as the two
men displayed their best.
It was Pilo Brashi of Puerto Rico, with his remarkable style and
skill in sending back into play the many attempted "kills" on the
part of Rion who took the set in three consecutive wins, 21-19, 21-15,

Braschi toppled the TEP's, SX, and the ATO teams to reach the
finals while Rion defeated the PKP, PGD,PDT teams.
The Inter-Aemican's representative didn't lose a single game dur-
ing the whole tournament.

'Over on Fraternity Row there
will be plenty of activity this week
end with the highlight being a
Semi-formal dance tomorrow night
in the Gym. The dance, scheduled
from 8 to 12, will be preceded by
a Jam Session from 5 to 6 and the
Florida-Presbyterian game earlier
in the afternoon.
Georgie Auld's Band will play
for the Dance and Jam Session
and this should prove to be the
best dance in several years, for
Georgie Auld has taken over Artie
Shaw's old band.
For these Formal dances it has
long been the policy not to admit
anyone who wore a corsage and
that policy will be enforced at the
'dance tomorrow night.
Most of the fraternities have
.planned other parties for tonight
and tomorrow morning. Hayrides
seem to be the most popular event
for tonight with the KAs, Delta
Taus, and SPEs venturing forth
into the cold weather, which
should prove to be a great asset.
The Phi Delts also are .venturing
out to have a wiener roast. The
Pi Lams are having a formal ban-
quet at the Hotel Thomas which
is to be followed by an open
dance, while ATO is throwing a
closed Basement Brawl.

Most readers of the Alligator
probably believe, with many a
good and rational reason, that it
is too early in the season to dig
into politics. Here's a contention
that may be hard to swallow. The
trouble with politics here, we
maintain, is that the topic is al-
ways brought up too late.
Some people, of course, are al-
ways slated for office. They are
among the outstanding, the influ-
ential, usually the deserving stu-
dent leaders. But there are times,
there have been times in the past
year, under a war emergency, that
capable leadership has been lack-
ing in the perpetual attempt to
fill vacant offices.
Now Is The Time
The time to think about who
should hold the increasingly im-
portant and responsible student
government posts is now. Despera-
tion tactics, last-minute displays
of rashness, choices based upon
quotas and other considerations
incompatible with truly efficient
organization, have characterized
the two 'elections we have been
privileged to witness.
The present indications of a
carry-over of this emergency at-
titude into the coming spring
elections is an unpleasant
thought. For there are going to
be spring elections. The emer-
gency is at an end, and so, in
May will be the life of the
war-time constitution and its
many honorary but non-remun-
erative offices.
Return To Peace .Standards
Under the old constitution of
the student body, which will be
in effect when the new elections
are held, several posts that have
receded in importance during the
war will re-attain their old signi-
ficance, responsibilities, and cash
returns. To play Santa Claus at-
titude towards the ward politico
and section boss type of individual
is to invite havoc in the very
framework of Florida's highly-
touted self-rule system. A frac-
tion over two months away Florida
men will attack the problem of
a return to peace-time standards.
It is surely not too early to give
the matter deep thought.
Look Over "F" Book
Every student who entered the
University under the emergency
regulations should look over the
text of the old constitution in any
recent "F" Book. When enough
men know 'the political score,
when enough eyes are Murined
into mature realizations, the pos-

sibility of an unsuccessful start
on the road to recovery becomes
an impossibility.
