F-Club Project

Initial Success
The first organized meeting of
r a Gainesville Boys Club was held
Thursday, December 6. Approx-
imately 100 boys responded to the
' summons of the F-Club.
Johnny Joca, president of theF-
Club, asked the boys if they were
willing to have a club and they
all answered in the affirmative.
The meeting was" climaxed by
a moving picture of the highlights
of last year's football games and
a weiner. roast.


World Students

In Federation
The first post-war World Stu-
dents Congress attended by repre-
sentatives from the United Na-
tions and neutral countries met in
Prague, Czechoslovakia, from No-
vember 17-23. Under discussion
was drafting a constitution for a
new International Federation of
Students. Formal opening cere-
monies were on the sixth anniver-
sary of November 17, 1939 when
Czechoslovak students were mas-
sacred by the Nazis-International
Students Day. Preliminary discus-
sions were held in London on No-
vember 10 and 11.
The conference, sponsored by the
National Union of Czechoslovak
Students and the Czechoslovak
government, was organized in co-
operation with che National Union
of Students of England and Wales.
Invitations were sent to all demo-
cratic student organizations, and
it was estimated by the arrange-
ments committee that about 200
delegates were present. This in-
cluded a group of six Americans,
representing the Student Divisions
of the YMCA and YWCA, the
United States Student Assembly,
the American Youth for Democ-
racy, American Unitarian Youth,
and the Southern Negro Youth
Congress.
During the conference Dr. Ed-
ward Benes, President of the
Czechoslovak Republic, addressed
the group, and on November 18
messages were broadcast from
Prime Minister Atlee, President
Truman, and Marshal Stalin.
Charles University in Prague
awarded an honorary doctor's de-
gree to, Mrs. Franklin Roose-
velt.
In general, present aims for the
federation-as worked out by a
-committee of national student or-
ganizations-are that it will:
1. Act as the representative in-
ternational student organization.
2., Provide means of encouraging
cooperation between democratic
national organizations of students.
3. Promote friendship between
students of different countries.
4. Promote the well being, and
improve the educational standards
of all students in order to enable
them to. play a full part as demo-
cratic citizens.
In order to carry out these aims,
it was proposed that the new fed-
eration will "represent student
opinion as defined by the Coun-
cil of the Federation, organize
international student conferences,
distribute information on student
interests in all countries, organ-
ize the international student travel
and promote international student
exchange, and organize internat-
ional sport activities." These
were the bojectives to be consid-
ered at Prague.
Also on the conference agenda
was discussion of the federation's
relationship to other -groups with
allied aims-particularly .to the
Educational and Cultural Organ-
ization of the United Nations.
The idea of a new and effective
world federation of students rea-
ches back into the early years of
World War II. During this per-

Cagers Tangle With Maine

Maritime Outfit Tonight


Sailors Request Game
With Florida Five

The Fighting Gator basketball
five will open the 1945-46 season
tonight when they meet the Maine
Maritime Academy team from the
state of Maine at the New Gym at
8 p. m.
The men the Gators are tang-
ling with are not very well
known in this region. They are
in Jacksonville on a ship and
wanted a game with the Univer-
sity. Coach Spurgeon Cherry
'was glad to oblige.
This will be the first of ten
games to be played on the local
court.
Although the starting line-up for
the Gators is not certain, Coach
Cherry will probably start Pete
Hartsaw and Harry Hobbs as for-
wards, Bill Edmiston at center,
and Angus Williams and Scotty
Henderson at the guard positions.
Edmiston is the only letterman on
the squad and much is expected
from him.
In a practice game with a
team from Camp Blanding the
Gators scored at will as they
raIn up la large score. In this


game the high-point -man was
little Pete Hartsaw, whom .many
expect to become the big gun on
the five this season.
The next tussle on the Gator
schedule is with the Jacksonville
Naval Hospital on Monday night
here in Gainesville. This will be
the last game before the Christ-
mas vacations.

Alligator, Seminole
Meetings Called Jan. 7
Meetings of both the Alliga-
tor and Seminole staffs have

editors for, 7:30 p. m. Monday
January 7.
This is meant to include both
editorial and business represen-
tatives. Seminole Editor Dave
Sage will announce his official
staff at that time.
Final plans for the advertis-
ing campaign will be completed
and territories for solicitors will
be assigned. Liggett Karney,
business manager, stated that
the attendance of all solicitors
was important.
No Alligator will be published
until after the holidays.


GATOR TACKLE JACK WHITE


White To Play


In East-West

All-Star Game

Andy Kerr Invites
Gator Tackle To Bowl
Jack White, star Gator tackle,
received an invitation yesterday
to play in the Shrine game in San
Francisco between the teams re-
presenting the East and West on
New Year's day, it was announ-
ced yesterday.
White received his bid from
Andy Kerr, one of the mentors
of the Eastern team. He will
leave here on the fifteenth and
will report to the Palmer House
in Chicago, where the team will
organize, and then work out
December 17, at Northwestern
University before leaving for the
Coast late that night. Pre-
game work-outs will be held at
Santa Clara University.
White is a sophomore in the Un-
iversity college and was the out-
standing man on the Gator for-
ward wall. The big tackle play-
ed superb ball all season as he
blocked five punts and recovered
seven fumbles, with five of the
recoveries being converted into
tallies for the Gators.
Hailing from Paris, Texas where
he made the Texas all-state team
two years in succession, White
weighs 205 pounds and stands at
six foot one. He was named on
the second All-Southeastern 'team
by the United Press, and on the
third of the Associated Press. He
also was given honorable mention
on the Intenational News Service's
All-American team.
One of the Florida star's great-
est seasonal honors came when
White captained the Gator team
that held a highly touted Green
Wave from Tulane to a 6-6 tie

in New Orleans.

Books Praised

In Library List
New books recommended by the
University library for the week
ending December 11, included:
"Party Line," by Louise Baker,
a homey and appealing collection
of heart-warming portraits; "S.
R. 0.", the most successful plays
in the history of the American
stage, compiled by Bennett Cerf
and Van H. Cartmell; "The Bible
and the Common -Reader," a tri-
bute to the literary excellence of
the Bible by Mary Ellen Chase.
"Against These Three," a vigo-
rous retelling by Stuart Cloete of
the crowded chapter in South Af-
rican history that was dominated
by three strong men; "There's
Laughter in the Air," short sket-
ches of the lives and careers of
the best-known radio comedians,
and recommended as being far
better than any joke book.

Duh, Duh, Say

Doc, Wot's Dis?
It happened on the campus.
A taxi pulled up in front of the
entrance to Language Hall and the
driver, evidently new on the route,
called to the man standing in the
doorway, "Say Bud, where is the
beautification department?"
Not knowifig of any such de-
partment but thinking that maybe
something new had been added,
the fellow tried to. find the loca-
tion of such a spot. Several mem-
bers of the teaching staff were
asked, but they just laughed and
zaid there was no such place.
It remained for the campus post-
man to solve the mystery. "Beau-
tification-well I've been here for
many years and never heard of
that one," he said, "but I'll bet he
means duplicating department."
"That's it. That's the place," ex-
claimed the taxi driver, and all
ended well.

Dorm Director Reminisces,

Expounds On Honor System


By Herb Stallworth
(Second in a series of six in-
terview articles concerning the
University of Florida Honor
System.)
We felt that a non-faculty mem-
ber of the University staff should
be interviewed concerning the
Honor System and its code. No
individual on the campuisis bet-
ter known than Carl B. Opp, Di-
rector of Residence, and no indi-
vidual comes in closer contact
with majority of students than
he.
When he was asked to make
a statement as to his own atti-
tude toward the Honor System,
he seemed eager to do so. "My
student contact with the honor
system dates back to my high
school days when I was fortun-
ate enough to attend a high
school where the Honor System,
while not officially recognized
as part of the school's rules,
was nevertheless almost univer-
sally practiced by the teachers
and students in the upper clas-
ses."
"The most interesting assem-
bly of each year was usually the
one at which University of Flor-
ida students appeared to discuss
Student Government and the Hon-
or System with us high school
students. Consequently, when I
entered the University as a stu-
dent ten years ago, neither I nor
my classmates even questioned
the Honor System as an integral
part of the student body tradi-
tions and mores."


"Perhaps this lack of philos-
ophical questioning on our part
would be taken to indicate naivete,
but I doubt it. We were well
aware of the fact that there had
been and would probably continue
to be cheaters, thieves, and for-
gers in our midst; but we were wil-
ling to accept the Honor System
as a workable ideal with the clear
understanding that while we
might be taken in occasionally by
a "sharper" but that we could
contribute legally to the punish-
ment of any "sharpers" who might
get caught. In other words, we
accepted the faith, but we kept
our guard up just the same."
"From my experiences as a
student, and as a member of
the Honor Court, and as an ob-
server of the effect of the Hon-
or System on students since
1939, I feel that there are two
ways in which the present stu-
dent body and Court can contri-
bute to the strengthening of the
.Honor System:
(1) By a more careful and ex-
act indoctrination of new students,
with clear emphasis on the fact the
Honor System is not completely
attained and perpetually self-sus-
taining ideal, but rather one that
must be continually guarded, nur-
tured, and strengthened.
(2) By possible revision of same
forms of procedure in criminal
cases to make procedure adhere
more closely to the best traditions
of accepted legal procedure."


Ex-TB Patient


Tells Kiwanians


Of Treatment
Don Elliot, student at the Uni-
versity and employee of WRUF,
told members of the Kiwanis Club
yesterday how theit money gi-
ven this year to the Christmas
Seal sale" is used in treatment
of tuberculosis at the Orlando San-
itarium, where he was a patient
18 .months.
Elliot, whose name in private
life is Elliot Heald, said his first
x-ray and blood test was taken In
1940, during his freshmen year at
the Uuinversity. This test showed
nothing, he said, but the one next
year showed he had contracted
the disease.
The hospital where he spent a
year and a half was described by
Elliot as being a modern, clean
institution of 400 beds. He said the
size could best be realized by com-
paring the Alachua County hospi-
tal of 116 beds to it.
The sanitarium is staffed by
seven doctors, five of them arres-
ted cases themselves he said. Each
doctor knows his patients person-
ally and the staff meets twice a
week to discuss future treatment,
progress and other matters con-
cerning their patients.
The key-note to T. B. treatment
is complete rest, the speaker said.
At the present there are no med-
icines that will cure the malady,
he told the meeting, but many ex-
periments are being made with the
war-discovered drugs.
The lay-out of the hospital was
described, first rioor being for
male patients, second floor for fe-
male patients, and surgery cases
on the third floor. Isolated cases
are kept separate,. he said, and a
person going in the institution
would never know they were in a
T. B. hospital. There is no cougy-,
ing heard or other indications the
layman might expect.
A mobile store arid library is
circulated through the, sanitarium
once a week for bed-ridden pati-
ents and everything possible done
to keep the patient happy,'Elliot
said.
Prior to his discharge,, .a pat-
ient is given aptitude tests,' the
speaker told the meeting. When
it is determined what type of work
he is best fitted for, the State
pays tuition for his training, thus-
ly fitting him for a future voca-
tion.
As an example of this, Elliot
told of a mechanic receiving the
treatment at the hospital. When
cured, the doctors determined this
man could not do heavy mechanic
work. This man was trained to
be a watch-maker.
Treatment costs $3.75 a day for
each patient, Elliot said. If pos-
sible, the patient pays for this
treatment entirely. If not, the
state and county pay part and the
patient part. Then in certain
cases, the stated and county pay
'the whole expense. In no case,
however, do other patients know
which are charity cases and which
are not.
After discharge, a patient must
go back to the hospital every
three months for a year to take a
check-up. After the first year
it is extended to six months, and
finally a year.
New members introduced at yes-
terday's meeting were Sanford
W. Goin and Herman E. Spivey.
Guests were Marshall 0. Wat-
kins, Garland Powell, and G. T.
King.

Tampa Donates

Hotel For Use

By Vet Couples
The University of Tampa has
announced a plan by which mar-
ried veterans of the west coast
school may live within their $75
GI Bill of Rights allotment.
The University has recquisiti-
oned the old Tampa Bay Hotel
for their use, redecorating rooms
on the fourth and fifth floors. Dr.
E. C. Nance, president, said that
they would eat, sleep, study, and
attend classes in the same build-
ing.
The hotel building, now being
used by the university, will be
ready next week, and the rooms
rented to veterans and their wives, c

Washington Contributes
Prefabricated Units

The threat of a serious hous-
ing shortage, owing to the large
and still-growing married veteran
gfoup on the campus, was appar-
ently resolved for the moment by
the appropriation of $250,000 by the
State Budget Commission for the
transfer and erection of one hun-
dred new housing units at the
University.
Backed by University authori-
ties and the American Legiou,
the Gator Veterans, campus c--
ganization of World War II .-:
vicemen, initiated a drive recent,
ly in an attempt to meet the im-
minent housing crisis. Jack Lu-
cas, Commander of the Gator
Veterans, appointed a committee
to study the question and to act
as liason to the interested groups.
Dr. John J. Tigert, President of
the University,and R. C. Beaty,
Dean of students, left the cam-
pus in search of available hous-
ing units for incoming veterans
and their families. Finally, the
public Housing Authority in Wash-
ington agreed to sell one hundred
houses, of prefabricated construc-
tion, to the University, for the
token sum of one dollar.
These houses, now in Panama
City, must be transported, erec-
ted, and fitted at the cost of the
University. The $250,000 ap-
propriation is designed to cov-
er these costs, and it is expected
that the rapid passage of the ap-
propriation will see the houses
ready for occupancy by Febru-
ary first. ,
Although final approval of the
site for the units' rests 'with: the
Board of Control, University of-
ficials said that the houses would
be located oh the campus, "prob-
ably in the south section of Sta-
NdOium R6ad." .

Letters To The tEditor
STUDENT RIDflES I4U&t PtiUG
Dear Editdr,
Your article concerning the liquor question happened to get on my
nerves.
In the first place, you referred to the students on the campus as
,upp6rteirs of bootleggerss." You also stated that a wet county would
protect students from the effects of bad liquor. In other words, Flor-
ida men are virtually sots Phooy.
Secondly, a vote for a wet coffnty is a vote for vic&, crime; arid
aven drugs. Package stores invite the sal6oon; the saloon id tihe hlead-
ituarters of the underworld. There the inhabitants swaifi like rfiiaggots.
'fhird, there is no more season for the legalization of the sale of
Iftfio dr rcoeverage purposes than for the legalization for the sarhe
purpose of indrpmine or cbaine!
A wet county is just what th cliap politician arnd crook want. You
can't control the sale of liquor in a wet county any ifhor than youi can
control the sale of Coca-Cola. The" law sh0Uld -,r:' "'d a penalty shilchl
as', that a man caught drnnk and distiurIin tlie peace would be fined
so heavily that he would riot want to see a liquor bottle again.i
i think you're nuts!!!

A glance at metropolitan news-
papers from all over the nation
shows that the housing problem,
now occupying first place on the
agenda cf the University's post-
war program, is reaching serious
proportions all over the nation.
The housing problem reached
the critical point in centers of war
production during the conflict but
now that the war has ended, the
situation instead of easing has
grown even more serious. The in-
flux of returning veterans anxious
to settle down again coupled with
the fact that residential construc-
tion was severely curtailed by the
wartime shortage of labor and ma-
terials contribute to a problem
which has actually existed in a
milder form for many years.
Let's see what other parts of
the country are doing about the
shortage.
This week the University of
Tampa announced a plah to
house land feed a veteran and
his wife (who must also be at-
tending the university) for six-
teen dollars a week. Of this
amount seven dollars a week
would cover rent. Plans are be-
ing made to .set up a coopera-
tive cafeteria on the campus in
order to realize the economical
food system required. At sixteen
dollars per week a veteran and
his wife could manage to get
by on the 75 dollars a month
allowed a veteran and his wife
by the G. I. Bill. The plan

sounds good. How well it will
work, remains to be seen. The
amount allotted for food seems
remarkably low, but then, C.L.O.
on our own campus provides
food and lodging for 28 dollars
a month.
Turning to the housing news
from Washington, we find that
Congress now has a, bill before it
which would allot $196,627,0.00 to
provide 100,000 emergency housing
units for veterans.
Senator Meade of New York is
the author of legislation to give
the N.H.A. authority to provide
housing for veterans by moving
75,000 government owned houses,
originally used by war workers, to
areas of acute shortage. The bill
further provides that surplus
Army and Navy barracks would
be converted into emergency hous-
ing and the various states would
be authorized to provide and man-
age housing sites after the gov-
ernment has paid the expense of
dismantling, transporting, and
erecting the structures.
In a recent press conference
President Truman annmcnced
that lie is planning to revive
the abandoned priorities sys-
tem on building materials in
order to channel materials into
new low-cost residential hous-
ing. The administration envi-
sions a building program of
S'Od,009 new homes in 1946 with
preferential treatment for vet-
erans)
In Atlanta, one of the city's
most prominent daily papers is
campaigning vigorously for a, spe-
cial session of the Georgia Legis-
lature to act on the housing short-
age. The paper reports that 4,000
veterans are without adequate
housing in Atlanta alone.
It is interesting to note that
with all the beautiful plans float-
ing in the air, all dealing with
houses in four and five zero fig-
ures, they are all just that: plans,
not houses.

'One of these days the age-old
fight over co-education will come
to another heac in the State Leg-
islature. It will rattle the vener-
able panes of the law-making
buildings and draw many a broad-
side from the state's press.
And through it an, a little
voice will be whispering, "Re-
member me, remember me, re-
member me!" That little vlcee
will be the spirit of private self-
ish interests, the profit and loss
statement of many a business
.midget, the chambers of coxm-
merce of communities involved
in the issue.
Through the years of pro and
con on the famed battlefield of
whether or not to- ruin the un-
doubtedly spotless morals of Flor-
ida's lofty womanhood by sending
.her teen-age generations into con-
tact with Florida's also undoubted-
ly soot-stained and sex-mad male
population, two things have stood
out. Those are the slur on the
character of Florida men and the
usual disregard of their interests
in favor of what this or that com-
munity can get out of the deal.
When a man says that the ala-
baster statues supposedly typical
of the state's healthy, normal, and
vigorous girls will be corrupted by
contact with us, the voters of to-
morrow, he has thrown a potful of
muck into our attempts to make
ourselves the sort of men the state
can be proud of.
The people of Florida pay
taxes to give their youth an in-
expensive yet liberal education
of good quality. Then, when an
issue with the boomeranging


value of this one is thrown open
to public comment, the ones
who are allowed to make the
most of it are the ones who
are most likely to think strong-
ly in favor of their bankrolls or
the bankrolls of their constitu-
ents.
It cannot be said to be mere
trashy idealism to think of the
problem in this vein. Other South-
ern states have solved the differ-
ences cf the interest elements
without bloodshed, leaving Florida
the only state in the union to still
operate wholly in its higher public
education with the old tactics.
At some time the students of
Gainesville are going to stop
taking the insults of the un-
informed ox too-well-informed,
and object to being classified in
a division with the occupants of
the penal colony at Raiford.

With this issue the football
program enters its final week of
preliminary competition. Because
of the Christmas recess, starting
one week from today, the final
contests will be played beginning
the first Monday after resumption
of classes.
It is believed this event will
bring to a close the activities of
the Intra-mural department for
the first semester.
According to statistics garnered
by this office, the field of victori-
ous teams is being narrowed. To
date, winners of three out of the
four brackets have been deter-
mined.
By trimming the Sigma Chi's


(19-0), the Alpha Tau ,Omega team


won the first bracket. The ATO's
have so far won four victories
against no defeats. Victorious by
virtue of a forfeiture to the Inter-
Americans, the Phi Lambda Phi's
have been declared the winners of
the second group. This is the third
win for the PLP's without suffer-
ing a loss.
Smashing the KA ensemble,
40-0, the Phi Delta's garnered the
top billing in the third bracket,
and ran their winning streak to
four straight.

BENEFIT SUPPER
The benefit supper last night
at Crane Hall was largely attend-
ed and netted a neac sum for St.
Patrick's Altar Society, which
A5


sponsored the delightful function.
The large assembly room was
filled with tables, centered with
mounds of winter foliage, rich in
coloring, and lighted with can-
dles.
The delicious food was served
cafeteria style. Several committees
were in charge of planning, pre-
paring and serving the food, and
the ticket committee was quite
active.
