Plan To Ease

Vet Housing

May Utilize Facilities
From Army Air Base

The University has been approv-
ed, by' the National Heusing Au-
thority for 100 dwelling units to
house married veterans and their
families on the campus, Dr. John
J. Tigert, president, said yester-
However, Dr. Tigert pointed
out that the University is not
obligated to contract for the
units, surplus from war canips
and war industries, unless they
are satisfactory, explaining that
"The Lniversity is going to in-
vestigate all available housing
facilities immediately in order
to get the best for these vet-
erans and their families."
The enrollment of an unusually
large number.of married veterans
and students at the University has
caused a new- problem in housing
on the campus.,
Looking forward to a greatly
increase enrollment of veterans
and civilian married students the
second semester, Dr. Tigert said
that lie and a housing committee
were doing everything possible to
locate satisfactory housing units
from surplus war housing areas.
Several areas have been visited,
but the units were found unsatis-
factory for the purpose here, he
Commenting on trailers now be-
ing used by several universities,
Dr. Tigert said that the Univer-
sity mgnht install several trailer
units as a "temporary measure"
until more satisla-ctory and per-
manent dwellings could be located
and built.
He said the University and
the city were no.w cooperating
hi an attempt to get the Ala-
chua Army Air nuase declared
surplus by the War ,Uepartauent
in oruer to utilize rthe uormitory
facilities there, he said tie Ala-
chliua base units could be tranis-
ferred to a suitable location on
the campus and be remodeled to
tit tile needs -of veterans and
their wives.
In announcing that the National
Housing Agency had programmed "
the 100 units, Dr. Tigert said that
these units had merely' been re-
served for investigation by the
University and that if they proved
satisfactory they could then be
The government is making
available the housing units on sur-
plus Army bases and war indus-
tries to universities, colleges and
otlfer institutions and o'rganiza-
tions at low cost to facilitate hous-
ing problems, he explained.

Military Staff

Adds Three

New Members

With the reactivation of the Uni-
versity's Reserve Officers Training
Corps in the near future, three
new members have been added to
the military staff to put the pro-
gram into action, Lt. Col. Ralph
L. Joyner, PMS&T, announced
-Capt. Frank E. Burgher has
been appointed as assistant
PMS&T. Captain Burgher has
three years army service. Oth-
,er appointments include M/Sgt.
"Laurence T. Maxted, who has
had 17 years service in the regu-
lar army, and M/Sgt. Frederick
C. lilby, who has had 10 years
service with the regular army.
They will serve as sergeant ma-
jor and clerk, respectively.
Resumption of the ROTC under
a modified program designed to
financially reimburse veterans and

j ure.
S Qualified veterans will be ad-
-lted to the program and ex-

'Hot-Copy' Henderson Dips

Into Workings of GI Bill

If you've been wondering (as
we have) just how the G. I. Bill of
Rights functions here at the Uni-
versity, perhaps some of the infor-
mation given to your reporter this
week by R. S. Johnson, registrar,
will help to clear things up.
Of the 563 veterans enrolled
in school, approximately three-
fourths are taking advantage of
the opportunities offered by the
government, it was stated.
The 1irst step in securing
benefits is the filing of Form
195'0 which is the formal re-
quest to the Veterans' Adminis-
tration. It must be accompanied
by a certified copy of the dis- r
charge as an enlisted man or
notice of separation in the case
of .an officer. If the veteran
served as botJ an officer and
an enlisted man, lie must pre-
sent copies of bo~th documents
It was emphasized by Johnson
that the photostatic copies must,
be certified by a' notary public.
It was also pointed out that
while returning students may deal
directly with the Veterans' Admin-
istration, it is quicker and more
convenient to. have the registrar's
office handle the matter.
Applications should be filed at
least 30 days prior to the time r
of entrance to school. However, it I
may be done at registration. '

In this case, the student will
pay his fees from his own money
and keel) a receipt for each
transaction. When the Veterans'
Administration answers the ori-
ginal request and sends back a
"Certificate of Eligibility," the
University, upon presentation at
the registrar's office, will issue
an authorization card to. the vet
and refund the amount shown
on the receipts.
From there on it's smooth sail-
ing. All the student has to do is
present his card and sign receipts
for books and registration charges.
His sustenance allowance will be
mailed out to cover the period of
enrollment until the completion
cf his allowed time under the
/However, if the vet, for any
reason, drops out of school for
the summer or during a regu-
lar semester he must notify the
registrar and the payments will
be discontinued until such time
as hle re-enters, it was explain-
ed. At that time lie will begin
to receive payments again.
Jchnson further pointed out that '
any students who desire to remain
in school the year round will be
able to do so without any loss of
money as there is not sufficient
time between semesters to- 'cause
discontinuance of the payments.

fall production, under the direc-
tion 'of Professor Roy E. Tew, will
be presented in P. K. Yonge Au-
ditorium Tuesday and Wednesday,

The play, wh.ch centers about
the character Harry, who is af-
fectionately called "Uncle" due to
his unas:'ertiveness, his apparent
gentleness, and his inability to do
aKiything really well, is a pleasant
variation of the perfect crime.
When Harry's doting elder sis-
ters begin to inteiifere in his life
so much that there is danger of
his losing the girl he loves, Harry
reacts, snowing his true character
and revealing desires long smold-
ering within him.

appearance of the campus is evolving into a proof of that dictum.
Some pranks. some attitudes, .some m9vemen~ts, have .no place on
a serious llg'e campus. Vandalism surely stands high .on.the list of
ith things that law-abiding university men will condemin. T
Yet. evidences of vandalism, like evidences of dishonesty and lacqk
c:f faith. have appeared unusually often. There are persons; appparernt-
ly, for whom the newness ,of fairly normal and happy .conditions -means
an outbreak of childish, destructive tendencies.
The specific '.-i a suffering from the marauders has been a number
of fraternity house.. The Inter-Fraterriity Co ."er-nce -elt obliged to
meet this week a;-id pass a drastic resolution to protect their property.
According to the IFC ruling, any frait man caught molesting one
of the homes will be. referred to a faculty disciplinary committee, and
his fraterrijty assessed twenty-five dollars plus costs.
Non-fraternity students found bothering these properties will be
turned over to the same committee. If persorls not cqn.neqtedt with the
student body are guilty of such actions, they will be referred to the
,civil court-s.
The very necessity of passing such a resy'ution is a blight on the
.community. It follows on the heels from flagrant thievery ,from the
ap1p.e boxes placed around .the campus, and whcse contents were to be
vaid for under the Honor System.
If the IFC is forced to remand any student for punishment for van-
dalism, the humiliation will be complete. Honesty and integrity and
maintenance of our .fellows' integrity are all prerequisites for a sue-
cessful student body life. That they should ce violated is unpardon-
able in a true Florida man.-T. N.

Freshman Says

By H. J. Guzlk-
Essayists have written lengthy discourses about INTEGRITY.
"Righteous behavior" has been emphasized from the pulpit and the
textbook. An ancient adage stresses, "Honesty is the best policy."
Yet, imagine wihart would .happen to hoi po;loi if everyone were en-
tirely scrupulous? It might lead to .revolutions or, at least, civil wars.
'Take the matter of formal announcements. Your daughter is
tiarryir an elderly man who has a fairly large bankroll. In .our
hypothetically pure world, the announcements would read:

(Hurray! At last it's happenirg!)
(The fat job)

(He's a homely old dog, but lousy with dough.!)
Honesty in the droll field of advertising would be asinine. Public
relations men would shudder at the very thought. Imagine bill-boarids
Miami Beach, the weatherman .at Los Angeles, doctors, lawyers,
Ho:lywood. press-agents, copymen, reporters Chambers of Commerce
ti-,s list is. too numerous would all go out of business.
Integrity woukin never work in politics. Imagine a speaker crying,
"Vote for me! I'll get you into the worst economic merry-go-round
any statesman has ever conceived." Ambassadors from foreign po-
tentates would return home empty-handed. New automobiles could
never be sold. Americans would not know what "Pink Tooth Brush"
, is, whether or not they'd walk a mile for a cigarette or how to get
rid of under-arm perspiration..
Pur(l honesty couldn't work in the classroom. All school boards
want st.a,hnts to realize that America is the greatest, noblest, most
perfect, kiindJiest, -most loved, -wealthiest, and most enviable nation
on earth. Other nations stress the identical theme.
As long as there Is advertising, there is propaganda. People don't
want to know the truth -the whole truth. Besides, there would be too

University Helps

Develop New

Storm Locator

Device Reduced
Pacific Losses

Locating storm areas by
sfericss" equipment, part of which
was developed at the University,
helped to reduce aircraft losses
in the Pacific theater and holds
great peacetime promise, the War'
Department revealed today.
The device, a close secret dur-
ing the war, is called a Static,
or "Sferics". Direction Finder and
authorities say it can locate the
position of storms within a radius
of 2,000 miles.
Such information was highly
valuable in determining bombing

in routing planes around areas of
.turbulence, officials pointed out.
In the advanced stages of, its
development the Direction Finder
was put to combat tests in a
"simulated theatre of war" at the
AAF Center, Orlando, Fla., where
men of the 26th Weather Region
pointed out certain bugs in the sys-
tem. Their conclusions proved
identical with reports 'being re-
ceived from actual combat thea-
ters and led to further improve-
ment of Sferics networks.
Eighteen of these unusual in-
struments saw action during the
war even though final kinks had
not been worked out, so great
was the need for a reliable storm-
locator system. Another home-
front group participating in the
project was the Sferics Section
of the Evans Signal 'Laboratory
in Belmar, N. J.
A .year and a ialf ago the Sig-
nal Corps asked President John
J. Tigert of the University of
Florida to modify special equip-
ment based on hurricane devices
previously developed in U. of F.
laboratories for locating storms.
On this basis the Engineering and
Industrial Experiment Station then
devised the Direction Finder.
For a long time it has been
known that certain types of me-
teorological conditions are accom-
panied by severe electrical distur-
bances These disturbances are
responsible for the crackling and
grinding noises heard by all ra-
dio listeners. In the Static Di-
rection Finder, these disturbances
give a visual indication of a
storm's direction, officials ex-
The Finder consists of a cath-
ode ray indicating tube similar
to those used in television and ra-
dar sets, and two mutually per-
pendicular receiving loops and am-
plifiers. An incoming signal pro-
duces a straight line flash on the
face of the cathode ray tube.
The angular position of this flash
gives the direction of origin of
Ithe static crash. Several AAF
stations in a network taking sij
multaneous observations on the
same flashes can then locate
storm positions in a few minutes
within a radius of about 2,000
The DirectTon Finder will be
of use to commercial airlines and
private airplanes, as by this meth-
od they will be able to get re-
ports to augment regular weath-
er reports.
Although finding its first use
in wartime, Sferics began as a
scientific project at the Univer-
sity of Florida in 1934. At that
time Dean Joseph Weil at the
College of Engineering, together

with Dr. Gleason W. Kenrick,
then at Tufts College, considered
the possibility of tracking hurri-
canes by means of the static as-
sociated with them. Some simi-
lar work on thunderstorms had
been carried ori in this country
and abroad.
The U. S. Weather Bureau, W.
P. A., and the U. S. Navy became
interested in this matter, with the
result that funds and equipment
were appropriated. Apparatus
built by' the National Physical
Laboratory in England was se-
cured through the U. S. Navy.
The equipment was revised and
rebuilt at the University of Flor-
ida laboratories, and a network
of stations in Florida and Cuba
was put in operation. Later,
other staffs, under the auspices
of the Navy and the National
Research Council of Canada con-
tributed to certain phases of the
