Hume To Board

Appointed To
i Ag. Committee

Dr. H. H. Hume, provost for
agriculture and dean 'of the Col-
lege of Agriculture, has been
named to a four member admin-
istrative committee of the Inter-
American Institute of Agricul-
tural Sciences, it was announced
here from Washington recently.
Dr. Hume's, appointment
was received here in a letter
from J. L. Colom, secretary
of the Inter-American Insti-
tute who wrote in part: "I
Shave known for many years
of your great interest in and
the help that you have given
to the work of agricultural

The Inter-American Institute is
under the general supervision of
the Pan-American Union and was
set up several years', ago to pro-
vide educational facilities and un-
dertake research in tropical ag-
riculture. The Institute is lo-
cated on a 2,800 acre tract in
Turrialba, Costa Rica. It is staf-
,fed by men covering the entire
general field of agricultural re-
search and education. Students
are graduates of the universities
of the Latin-American countries
and the United States.
Commenting on the ap-
pointment, Dr. Hume pointed
out that the Institute grew
out of a recommendation
made by an advisory commit-
tee set up by the late Presi-
dent Roosevelt. Among the
early recommendations of the
committee was one to the ef-
fect that there should be lo-
cated in the Western Hemi-
shere an institution that
would give particular atten-,

agriculture and to the train-

University Issues Bulletin

On General College Set-Up

Reviewing ten years of the com-
prehensive program of education
required for freshmen and soph-
omores, the University has issued
a bulletin describing the general
education program in the lower di-
vision which pioneered a nation-
wide curricular trend in leading
colleges and universities.
Facing the hard fact that
over one-half of its entering
freshman failed or dropped out
of school before they reached
the meaningful parts of a
professional study, and left
school with only fragments
of learning, University offic-
ials in 1935 worked out the
core program. Professional
work was not curtailed, but
the general education prog-
ram took the place of the pre-
professional foundations and
the scattered elective courses.
The' growing general education
movement is found in every sec-
tion of the country. The Dec-
ember 10, 1945 issue of Time
magazine told how Harvard, Col-
gate, Yale, and Princeton, long
eesteeped in the free elective course

system, all joined the movement
toward a broad basis of under-
Florida Listed As Key
The Office of Education in
Washington in its official bulletin
on higher education listed the
University of Florida as a key
institution in the general educa--'
tion movement. Accepting its
responsibility to provide adequate
vocational and professional train-
ing at the college level is needed
by the individual and the state to
preserve American civilization and
to make a more' desirable future.
'/ General education work at
the University is in the follow-
ing areas: American institu-
tions; the sciences, reading,
speaking, and writing; effec-
tive thinking; and the human-
ities. Facts. and concepts
from these major areas of hu-
man achievement are studied
.along with meanings and rela-
The program is carried out at
the University under the direc-
tion of the University College,
headed by Dean W. W. Little.

Board Accepts

Grid Challenge
In answer to Tampa Tribune
Sports Editor Pete Norton on his
statement that the challenge of
building a football team at Flor-
ida was in the hands of the Board
of Control, J. Thomas Gurney,
Board chairman, sent the follow-
ing letter, which the Alligator re-
prints in its entirety:
Mr. Pete Norton,
Sports Editor
Tampa Morning Tribune
Tampa, Florida.
Dear Mr. Norton:
I have seen your nice and
friendly letter to the members of
the State Board of Control includ-
ed in the issue of the Tampa
Morning Tribune of December 22,
1945. In it you indicate that the
challenge is out to the members
of the Board of Control so far as
the future of the University of
Florida football is concerned.
I am sure that the members of
the board will approve my telling
you that insofar as their ability
and authority extends they accept
the challenge and have no inten-
tion of relinquishing their inter-
est in the matter. If their best
alcility is insufficient to bring sat-
isfaction, it will be most regret-
table. Nevertheless, I think they
can be relied upon to go to that
extent. Not only is this true with
respect to the Board of Control,
but it is also true with respect
to the University officials, inclu-.
sive of Dr. Tigert. The spirit
which has been maintained in
these difficult times by the
coaching staff at Florida is
clearly indicative, of cooperation,
\which is very heartening. The
alumni of the University of Flor-
ida, are also rousing to an inter-
est which is most encouraging to

Critics Charges

On Cafeteria

Declares No One
Has To Eat There

Replying to student critics who
had circulated a letter over the
state deploring prices and food at
the University cafeteria, President
John J. Tigert recently pointed out
that "any student who doesn't like
the prices or the food at the cafe-
teria doesn't have to eat there."
Dr. Tigert said the cafe-
teria was operated only for
the convenience of the student
body to provide low cost eat-
ing facilities on the campus,
"but no student is compelled to
eat there."
He replied to an open letter cir-
culated in Florida newspapers by
six University students who in
brief charged that prices at the
cafeteria were high and the food
Three Point Reply
In a three point reply Dr. Tig-
ert pointed out that : (1) "We op-
erate a cafeteria in order that a
criterion may be set up for the
purpose of keeping prices low. If
the cafeteria was not operating
prices would go up materially. Off
campus operators of restaurants
sometimes object to the low prices
charged at the cafeteria and re-
quest that prices be raised.
(2) "We have a good many
boys at the University who require
work of some kind in order to
make their way through school.
The cafeteria 15rovides work and
food for a considerable number of
"No one is required to eat
at the cafeteria. It is operated
for the benefit of those who
care to avail themselves of it,
either because of convenience,
or because they like the food.
Those to whom it does .not
make an appeal are at liberty
to eat elsewhere."
Referring to the six who signed
the letter of criticism, Dr., Tigert
said, "These gentlemen are en-
titled to their opinions and they
do not have to dat at the 'cafe-
teria," adding that he and Mtrs.
Tigert often ate at the cafeteria
and regarded the food excellent

Rooms Needed

To Handle New

Dormitories Are

In view of an expected enroll-
ment of 2500 students at the
beginning of the new semester in
February, Dean R. C. Beaty ap-
pealed to all Gainesville citizens
to notify his office if they have
any rooms they can rent to the in-
coming men.
He asked that persons hav-
ing spare rooms to rent, file
such vacancies in writing. His
office would classify such
Rooms for student occupancy.
Although 100 housing units
will soon be available for married

tories already over-subscribed,
with letters pouring into the

formation on rooming facilities.

cently approved a giant vet-
eran hospital project for this

students to live are scarce. It

Florida Band

Is On Decline
Latest attack made on the Uni-
versity by Gov. Millard Caldwell
is the University band. Along
with State Treasurer J. Edwin
Larson, he said they have heard
complaints that the band "isn't
what it used to be."
Caldwell told Dr. John J. Tigert
and the Board of Control that he
had received a few complaints
about the band and that "it seems
some of our best high school
bandsmen are going out of the
Larson added that Floridians
used to say, "We haven't much of
a football team, but we have a
crackerjack band." He continued
that some are beginning to say
"We haven't got either one."
Tigert replied that he was
aware of the fact that the band
had dropped off somewhat due to
wartime student shortages, but
"outside of Georgia Tech, we still
have about the best band in the

Carleton Speech

Published In

"Vital Speeches"
A speech entitled "Peace Is
Made by the Living and not the
Dead" by Prof. William G. Carle-
ton appeared in the January 1,
1946 issue of Vital Speeches," na-
tionally known magazine of im-
portant addresses.
This was the second time in past
weeks that Carleton has appeared
in a periodical of major standing.
The first was in an article "Prog-
ress Towards Peace," in the De-
cember issue of "The South and
the Nation," published under the
auspices of the University of
North Carolina.

Two University Men Recall

Seeing "Coach Of Year" Play

When Bo McMillan, Indiana
University, compared his joy over
his nomination as "Coach of The
Year," to the touchdown he made
against Harvard while playing
with Center College, two Univer-
sity of Florida men recalled that
It was back in 1921, and Center
College was playing a stronger
Harvard team. McMillan made
his touchdown that put Center
ahead by a 6 to 0 margin. Later in
the game Harvard called its num-
ber one pray and ran to Center's
five yard line-but a Harvard End

was offside. The head linesman
who called the offside penalty was
a former Vanderbilt halfback and
All-Southern star-John J. Tigert,
now president of the University.
In the stands that day was an-
other University man-Prof. John
W. DeBruyn, assistant professor
of music and director of the Glee
Club. Both Dr. Tigert and De
Bruyn recall the play on which
Harvard's near. score was called
back as a famous sneak play. Be-
cause of that one play Harvard did
not number the players jerseys,
thus making for greater deception.

Of Constitution

Asked Of Court
Twenty University students
have petitioned the Chancellor of
the Honor Court asking for an of-
ficial interpretation of Paragraph
3, Section 2, Article V of the Con-
stitution of the Student Body,
which concerns the minimum num-
ber of semesters a student must
attend the University to. be quali-
fied for the offices of president,
vice president, and secretary-
treasurer of the student body.
The Alligator prints the petition
in full:
Chancellor, Honor Court,
Dear Sir:
Under the provisions of Para-
graph 3, Section 4, Article VI,
Constitution of the Student Body,
the undersigned members of the
Student Body request an official
interpretation of Paragraph 3,
Section 2, Article V, Constitution
of the Student Body, to determine
the minimum number of semes-
ters a member of the Student
Body must have attended the Uni-
versity in order to be" qualified in
this respect, f6r candidacy for the
offices of President, Vice-Presi-
dent, and Secretary-Treasurer of
the Student Body.
Inasmuch as this is the only sec-
tion of the Constitution covering
this point, and since Paragraph 3
of this section plainly states
"Which shall exceed two regular
semesters," it is assumed that this
means that the candidate must
have completed a minimum of two
regular semesters in order to
qualify in this respect.
In view of the fact that there
has been some discussion on this
point, and in the interest of the
Student Body as a whole, it is re-
spectfully requested that an inter-
pretation be given.

ROTC Receives

Board Approval

To Reactivate

Goes Into Effect
January 20

/ Reactivation of the University's
Reserve Officers' Training Corps
in both the artillery and infantry
divisions on January 26, has re-
ceived. Board of Control approval,
President John J. Tigert, an-
nounced recently.
The University was recently
notified ,by the War Depart-
ment of the expanded ROTC
program that will mean in-
creased financial reimburse-
ment to veterans, but no date
for its reactivation was an-
nounced at that time.
The ROTC was suspended at the
University early in the war be-
cause of decreased student enroll-
ment, although the basic military
training course has been carried
through the war.
New Program
Under the new program, veter-
ans who have served six months
will be excused from one year of
the basic two year course, and vet-
erans with a year or more service
in the army will be excused from
all of the two year basic course.
Physical standards for the
advanced course will be in
keeping with army standards
required of officer candidates.
Veterans and students enrolled
in the course will receive fi-
nancial reimbursement in
keeping with garrison pay and
wear standard officer uniforms
prescribed by the army for re-
served officers. At the end of
the two. year training period
students will receive a com-
mission as a second lieutenant
in the reserve corps.
Applications for the ROTC are
being received at the University,
and students qualifying through
standard army physical and men-
tal examinations, may begin the
course the second semester of the
current school year.

The Alligator will not be
published next week because
of semester exams.

.With these boys here it will ,:e an excellent opportunity for the
students of this school to show them some real Florida hospitality.
At the present time the Athletic Department of the University is
going through a process Which, when completed, will -make it one
of the finest Athletic Departments in the South and we must as
students of this school, do our part in the big job ahead.
The students at Florioa have for the last five years been ask-
ing, "What can we do to help make the Gators a better team ?" Now
is the time for all of you forward thinking students to come out
and do something about this thin--. The. sports pages of 'the state
for the last few years have been yelling, "Keep the state's athletic
stars ih the state and 'Q e will have a good football team."
Now, the student co:.- r into the picture. No one, the coaches nor
the University officials, CLh do; more to make the high school visi-
tors like the University than the students themselves. The fraterni-
ties are going to keep some of them in their houses Plans have been
made for their entertainment by the University. Each student, too,
can do his part by extending them a hearty welcome.
Many of the coaches in the state are graduates of tther schools
and are not sold on the University. If we show thefi and their boys
that we are interested oin them, the chances are they may Obecome
interested in the University.
This is an excellent opportunity for the student body to do its
part in building the new athletic program and a championship foot--
ball team.

Cafeteria Controversy .

Just before the Christmas' holidays,' the Alligator received a let-
ter from six students who claimed to represent a majority of student
opinion on the campus. These six men wv-re ronrirctr'ed (in a, vague way
whose precise nature we couldn't determine) with some move .by
their own little group and an unnamed number of others to investigate
the cafeteria, charging that the disparity between University cafe-
teria prices and those of others was considerable, and directly ac-
cusing someone of "fraud and mismanageilent."
The Alligator went to press without printing that letter. Short-
ly afterwards, several newspapers throughout the state printed ap-
proximately, the same item in one form of aflotheg.
The Alligator's reasons for withholding this letter, we feel, are
beyond reproach. The charge of fraud was unshielded by any subtlety,
and not supported by any parallel listing of facts and figures, except
a blanket statement that their investigation had shown a meal, in
privately operated businesses costing $.42 to produce (all costs in-
cluded) being priced at $.65, while the same meal at the University
cost $.75. How this was figure, and what experience gave the six
the authority to consider themselves able to price indirect costs, was
likewise not specified.
Student criticism of University activities is a healthy sign, when
it involves a constructive basis for that criticin tAis well as a good
end in view. The means chosen by the six students to air their comn-
plaint has, first of all, given anti-Univertsity forces an excellent tar-
get for derogatroy remarks about out State University. Secondly, it
directly libels University officials in general without the apparent
desire to come right out and place the blame for the purported "fraud
and mismanagement" on any particular set of shoulders. Third, it
claims to represent a majority of student opinion without any listing
of the names of the supporters of the investigatory project.
Whether or not cafeteria prices are beyond the average student's
range of spending is not the issue involved, as the six hold. The is-
sue is whether the cafeteria can turn out food With its ultra-sanitary
methods any cheaper than it does. As to the quality of the food, of-
ficials claim that it is the best they can get. To call them liars seems,
in view of present food conditions, and Without corroborating evi-
dence, somewhat foolhardy and out of place.
The six students and all other new men on the campus might ,e6
interested to know that these situations are hardly a novelty to the
University. It was only last year that an almost identical situation
arose. As one Alligator staffman remarked today, "They all end up
the same way." There are several eateries in the vicinity of the
campus. The cafeteria, like all restaurants, serves only one main
style of food. This food may not be to the liking of some individuals.
They are hardly being compelled to eat it.
The most outstanding evidence, of a lack of coherent student spir-
it has been shown by this incident. We are painfully forced to note
the lack of good orientation of new men that has existed in the past
two years. We hope that in the future those with ideas for the im-
provement of the University work their problems out with older-
students, use available Alligator *_nd publicity files, take advantage
of the experience of upper classmen, and confine investigations and
subsequent findings to rcmpus scrutiny.
The entire situation has given thousands of Florida citizens the
impression that this is the Black Hole of Calcutta. It does not call
for discipline. It calls for education, for Coordination, for mass spirit,
for closer contacts between the University officials and the student

After much debate and delay Congress recently passed the re-
vised G. I. Bill of Rights which attempts to remedy the defects in the
original law. Benefits Were increased and some of the cumbersome
and unworkable provisions in regard to loans were relaxed.
The new law covers a great .deal of territory but we shall try
to summarize the main points.
'Proba~ly of greatest interest to veterans here at the
University is the increase in subsistence granted veterans
who are attending school under Public Laws 346 and 16. Sin-
gle veterans will now receive $65 monthly under P. L. 346
and married veterans $90. Those Under P. L. 16 will now re-
ceive $195 monthly while married veterans under the same
law will receive $115.
Next among the educational provisions was the abolishment of
the stipulation that veterans over 25 When they entered service must
be able to prove that their education was interrupted. This is no
longer necessary. Any veteran, otherwise eligible, can now get
schooling up to, four years, based on length of service.
Another ban relaxed was that prohibiting the Veterans Admin-
istration from paying for correspondence and short intensive courses.
Heretofore only extension courses at universities were paid for. In-
stead of so -much tuition allotted per month, a veteran may now
expend the full $500 per year allowed for tuition, in a much shorter
period. In other words, if he takes a two month intensive course
whose cost is $500, the V. A. will pay the entire cost. Previously
the V. A. figured a school year as being nine months and allotted
so much tuition per. month. Consequently under .the old rule, if .a
veteran took a two month course costing $500 the V. A. would have
paid only approximately two-ninths of the $5'00 for thosp two months.
Another provision which went Iby the board was that providing
that all benefits received under the G. I. Bill of Rights were to be
deducted from any future bonus voted by Congress.
In addition the stringent control wielded by the V. A. over G. I.
loans was eased.
Loans for the purchase of property will be easier to ob-
tain because the "reasonable value" will now be considered
instead of the "normal reasonable value." The large increases
in the price of property during the war years kept a; Veteran
from 'buying under the previous regulation because the "nor-
mal vatue" of property was based on the cost before the war
instead of present day costs. Consequently very few veterans
were able to buy homes under the old program. The period
for repayment of such loans has been lengthened. The maxi-
mum government loan ,guarantee has been raised from $2,000
to $4,000. This permits a real estate loan of up to $8,00 with
the government guaranteeing half the amount.
The provisions of the new law are too broad to be adequately
covered here. However, the main features of the law have been
covered. ,At some future time other provisions of the law may be

300 Vets To Return
300 former students, veterans of
World War II whose education
was interrupted by the war, are

1,600 students in the University
at the present time. He advised
prospective students to file ap-
plications for dormitory facilities
immediately with the Director of
Residence, and married veterans
who' may want to avail them-
selves of facilities in the new 100
unit housing project on the cam-
pus to file applications with the
Dean of Students.

tus after serving in the Marine
Coach Bustet Bishop is very
enthusiastic about Krogel and his
"That boy scored 106 points for
me the last .year he played," said
Bishop, "I don't think there is
a back. in the state who rates
more consideration,')
Schaeffner and Smith are both
senior guards who played on the
1945 G. H. S. grid team.
The Orientation program, in-
augurated by the University ath-
letic staff last year, is expected
to attract over 200 coaches and
players from the high schools
throughout the state.
The program was originated
with idea of acquainting the vis-
itors with the University and its

A $500 loan fund for worthy
and needy students in .:r '. ii.::-
ture from the estate of ti.- rt-.:
Rudolph Weaver, director of the
School of Architecture and Allied
Arts until his death in 1944, has
been accepted by the Board of,
,Control, Dr. John J. Tigert, pres-
ident of the University, announced.
The fund, to be known as
the "Rudolph Weaver Stu-
dents Loan Fund," is being
established at the University
at the request of the former
director of the school. Spec-
ial provisions of the fund des-
ignate that it shall be given
"worthy and needy students"
inarchitecture and allied arts
after they have completed two
years of college. Mrs. Weaver,
widow of the late director has
given the University a check
for $500 for the fund.
Weaver died November 10, 1944,
after nearly twenty years as di-
rector of the School of Architec-
ture and Allied Arts. He was
prominent in architectural circles
throughout the state and nation
and many of the buildings on
the University campus were des-
ighed by him as architect to the
Board of Control.

The Agriculture Club held its
last meeting of the current sem-
ester Monday night, making plans
to elect officers on January 28
and to entertain new members
at that time.
Several visitors attended, among
them Mr. Vaughn, who has just
returned to the campus from the
Hawaiian Islands and gave an in-
teresting talk on cattle-raising in
that outlying possession of the
United States.

their game with Blanding, scoring

their shots.

A survey of off-campus room-

these houses will be inadequate
to care for the students expected'
to register next semester.
Dean of Students R. C. Beaty
said that at one time about 1500
students were housed off campus.
Now, due to the number of build-
ings converted into apartments
and other arrangements among
families who previously rented
rooms to students, no more than
500 students can be taken care
of off campus.

+0oc HO Q TAURus EjT
By Ted Nelson
We spent our Christmas vaca-
tion at home in the southeastern
part of the state, and had a good
chance to sound out various senti-
ments in the coast cities of Mi-
ami, Miami Beach, Ft. Lauderdale,
Hollywod, and the rest of the clus-
!.ter of towns in the area.
Naturally, with the already tra-
ditional New Year celebration that
embraces the horse and dog
tracks, the C-! : Bowl spectacle,
boating and .-,.. and the air
races, the folks in Dade and Brow-
ard counties had a lot to keep
them happy. But they were hardly
drunk with the pleasures of lux-
ury and a perfect holiday.
The city of Miami knew
quite well what it was doing
when it put its University into
an Orange Bowl that has in-
variably seen fetter teams
than the opponents of 1946 for
almost a decade. It seemed
cognizant of the fact that
Gecorgia, L. S. U., and other
big-name outfits could prob-
ably make the local boys look
weak in comparison.
They weren't playing a game
that had its beginning and ending
on the first day of 1946. They were
playing for keeps. The city and
county, the university and its
profs and leaders and students,
had their eyes on a long, long,
future, and they were gambling
for heavy stakes.
We don't feel we're sticking our
head out too far when we predict
that the near future will prove
they've won those stakes.
It's all well and good to
point out that the University
of Florida has and does rank
well above the southeast Flor-
ida school in most academic
fields. But to point that out
now as reconciliation for Mi-
ami's and its publicity agents'
triumph seems to us a some-
what weak defense mechan-
While some Florida students
fulminate about purported faults
in the cafeteria, (Miami students
have also complained strongly
about their eatery), an effort-
sparked by the administration of
a city and backed by almost half-
a-million inhabitants of a county
landed their football team in a
national niche, placing it in -the
headlines of an entire nation's
"That was the cinching, factor
in the deal that put the U. of
Mi'ami up against Holy Cross in
the Burdine Stadium gridiron. And
for us to think that the partici-
pants, large and little in impor-
tance, who were involved, had
forgotten the University of Flor-
ida, would be a fatal mistake.
We talked to an occasional
student, a football player,
high school grid stars, busi-
nessmen, politicos. They all
said, in one way or another,

"It's now or never.'" They
seem sure that their energy
can last until they have built
another UCLA- a combina-
tion of glamor, high scholastic
standing, and nationally rec-
ognized sports power.

Buddy Dean May

Swim In Movie
The movie picture "Gator Bait,"
soon to be filmed at Silver
Springs; might include Buddy
Dean, 13 year-old Gainesville High
School student and son of Mr.
and Mrs. Roy A. Dean, Sr., of
1352 West McCormick Street.
While on the recent Boy Scout
Camporee held at Silver Springs
during the latter part of Dec-
ember, Buddy was showing his
fellow Scouts some plain and fan-
cy swimming when he was spot-
ted by the movie's representa-
tives who were looking for suit-
able sites for the picture.
The Hollywood men asked Bud-
dy-who's real name is Roy A.,
Jr.-to do several types of div-
ing and swimming, took his namne
and address, and explained they
were looking for water talent for
the picture.
Mrs. Dean, Buddy's mother,
said this morning in an interview
that the men were to contact
her and the boy's father as soon
as they return to Florida from
