Only half the size of -annuals

a yearbook.
The dedication to Adair read
in part: "To H. P. Adair, chair-

Student Body President

Greets New Enrollees

To the new and returning students:
On behalf of the student body, I should like to extend
a most sincere welcome. Everyone is glad to see our cam-
pus return to its pre-war enrollment, and to its traditional
Florida spirit.
We are all )planning a better post-war campus and
I feel certain the return of so many familiar faces to-
gether with our new students will assure this hope.
Sincerely yours,

state grant of $250,000 to the
University, the final result of

2. Increased membership from
80 men to approximately 500,
through a continues membership
3. Prepared and distributed a
veterans information b o o k 1 e t
throughout the state, thereby ren-
dering a valuable service to veter-
ans considering college education,
and receiving favorable publicity
for the Gator Veterans.
4. Made progress in the liberali-
zation of existing loan funds avail-
able for veterans.
5. Secured improvement in sur-
plus commodity distribution,
through public protests, and in
cooperation with other veterans

Alligator Reporter Looks

Into History Of University

(First of a series on the Univer-
sity of Florida)
When Florida was admitted to
statehood in 184'5, the government
granted almost 1,00,000 acres of
land for the establishment of semi-
naries of learning to the state.
In 1853, a small school
founded by S. S. .Burton, a
New Englander, and six teach-
ors, was taken over by the
state. The name was changed
to ,East Florida State Semi-
nary and remained so until
1866. In %hat year the school
was moved from its first home
in Ocala to Gainesville, where
it absorbed a private school
run by Professor Roper, and
the name again changed to
,East Florida Seminary.
Many other schools were being
formed by the state at this time,
but all of these were meagerly sup-
ported and not very highly rated
*in comparison with colleges of the
.Northern and Eastern United
Florida was in the pioneering

stage of education, and the stud-
ies of these schools ranked scarce-
ly higher than those of our senior
high schools of today. They did,
however, play an important part
in state development by turning
out leaders in this period when,
according to many writers, the
South was suffering from an in-
feriority complex.
The State Constitution
adopted in 1863 contained pro-
vision for a uniform system
'of common schools and a uni-
versity. The constitution 'was
not ratified until the following
year, and it was many years
later before the University
was established.
The Legislature in 1870 made
provisions for the Florida Agri-
cultural College-to take advantage
of the Morrill Act of Congress,
granting public lands for the es-
tablishment of colleges for agri-
cultural and mechanical arts. All
efforts were unsuccessful until the
University, in 1884, located its
third home in Lake City, Fla.

Housing Project

To Be Dedicated
February 11
The University's residential sun-
division for veterans and their
families will be formally dedicat-
ed here February 11, when the 100
unit housing project will open, Dr.
'John J. Tigert, president of the
University, announced yesterday.
Secretary of State R. A.
Gray, former State Commander
of the American Legion, will
speak and other prominent
members of the Legion will at-
tend the dedication. The cere-
mony will be held at 4 o'clock
on the grounds of the new pro-
ject located just south of the
University's Infirmary.
The houses, constructed of a
durable "cemesto" board, with
permanent roofs and floors, will
be completely furnished and each
unit will contain electricity, and
gas heating and cooking facili-
ties. Permanent roads are being
constructed through the project
under the direction of the State
Road Department, and each house
will be landscaped.
Veterans with children will
have priority for the new houses
and the entire unit will be used
exclusively for veterans and their
After clearance with the Fe4h-
eral Housing Authorify, the
University will charge $32.25 for
the 17, three bedroom units;
$29.50 for the 56 two-bedroom
units; and $26.75 for the 27 one-
bedroom units. This cost in-
cludes water and electricity.

when completed, most of the mon-
ey was- spent in transporting,
furnishing, landscaping, streets,
sidewalks, and utilities of the pro-
ject. The University is eligible
for reimbursement in part for
the amount expended on the pro-
ject, but not for the furnishings

Glee Club Begins

Campaign For

Going all-out to solidify its
"Ambassadors of Good Will"
reputation, the University Glee
Club initiated a publicity cam-
paign this week for new members.
A shortage of talent had
forced all University clubs and
organizations to occasionally ad-
mit members who might not
measure up. to the competitive
standards of normal time, Glee
Club publicity men stated. The
time for such measures, how-
ever, is over, they added.
Recently awarded the right to
bestow a musical "F" on its mem-
bers, the new rules of the club
require attendance at special part
rehearsals outside of regular
group rehearsals at least two
hours a week. This is in anticipa-
tion of the beginningg of a road
schedule in the very near future
that calls for visits to Sebring, St.
Petersburg, probably Tallahassee,
and several other major points in
the state.
Members given scholarships
this semester put in additional
hours to earn these awards.,
Returned to the Glee Club are
over half a dozen regulars who
have seen service during the war.
This has swelled the number at
daily gatherings to a point where
the crowded quarters of the club
allows for little increase in the.
total number it is possible to en-

Refund Possible

For University

The University is eligible for re-
imbursement in part on its new
100 unit housing project for mar-
ried veteran students, Dr. John J.
Tigert, president, announced.
Although the extent of reim-
bursement on the $250,000 pro-
ject rushed to completion on the
campus has not been determined,
Dr. Tigert said that the Univer-
sity is eligible for a substantial
refund on the amount expended
on the project. However, he point-
ed out that the University would
not be reimbursed for streets,
furniture, landscape,, sidewalks,
and utilities.
Extent Undecided
Under the law, the Univer-
sity is eligible for reimburse-
ments for the demounting at
Panama City, former site of the
units, transportation, and erec-
tion here of the demountable
houses. But Dr. Tigert empha-
sized that the extent of reim-
bursement was not yet decided,
and he added that the Univer
sity had applied for such refund
as is allowed.
Meanwhile, workmen were rac-
ing against a February 1 deadline
to complete construction of the
units here in time for the open-
ing of the lscond semester term.
The units, comprising one, two
and three bedroom homes, will be
used exclusively by veterans and
their families and veterans with
children will have priority.
Constructed of a durable ce-
mesto board with permanent roofs
and floors the homes will be com-
pletely furnished, each unit con-
taining electricity, and gas heat-
ing and cooking facilities. Per-
manent roads are being construct-
ed through the project under the
direction of the State Road De-
partment and each house will be
Lotated just south of the In-
firmary on the campus proper,
the homes are convenient to all

"Spring Frolics"

President Tigert Extends

Welcome To Newcomers

There is cause for gratifications and real rejoicing on
our campus with the return of more, than 600 former stu-
rents who are resuming their academic work, so abruptly
terminated by the call to duty in defense of their country.
and freedom. Our thoughts and prayers have followed
them constantly during this cruel war. We, are indeed
grateful that they have survived the ordeal and have re-
turned 'safely to their Alma Mater.
We are also glad to welcome some 1,200 additional
students, many of whom also have been released from the
armed services and who are now entering the University
for the first time. To these latter we bid welcome and
express'the hope that they will come to \participate fully
and immediately in the affairs of the University. It is a
tradition of the University of Florida that students come
first and that the University is established for the serv-
ice of its students. Students in the past have appreciated
this by active participation in the operation and improve-
ment of the University. The administration is keen to as-
sist you in the solution of any of your problems and to help
you derive the maximum from your work here.
: To one and all we bid a hearty welcome into the cir-

Florida's Future .
With a semester that holds l1romise of a normal sem--
blance- already in process, the Alligator heartily greets
the men who have come back and the men whqo have join-
ed Florida's ranks to swell the enrollment to the h lh-.tI
point since the ASTP marched away in 1944.
Perhaps the war may be considered technically pv.er.
Perhaps there are signs in the air that, with shortages aud
all the other recent inconveniences, an atmosphere of pre-
war conditions may come into being in the near future. But
these, remain hectic times in which to go to school, hectic
times to keep one's eyes on books and one's thoughts oni
To jump from a war to a college is going to be a big
leap for some. It's going to require a special effort, an ex-
tra amount of application. But tilis entrance or re-entrance
into the life of a university alsp finds the state and its chief
educational center on the threshold of new heights of
achievement, in which the oJportunity for distigigu1ished
service to the community will be unparalleled.
To raise the University of Florida to the position in
the national educational picture which it requires to belne-
fit its students to a maximum degree, is a problem of
student effort almost as much as one of administration
and appropriations.
'This will require'strong support of student body, ad-
ministration, faculty, and tneir associates, support of all
campus organizations with every facility avail-able, and,
above all, a searching and critical but never a destructive
attitude towards evei-ything pertaining eto he Uiie-r.sity.
The Alligator calls on the new blood to help lead
the effort, on the old-liners to keep tile trad itiuns and spirit
of the past alive. To all, the best- of luck and a proud
confidence in the advent of a 'brilliant future.


Orida's Neit Step 9

* 0

- With enrollment nearly doubJe that pf first semester
and fast approaching the pre-war normal, the University
is again on the upswing.
The lean war years are behind us and.'Florida npw
stands upon the threshold of a period that .can be its
brightest .. an era'which can sweep the UJniversy into
the ,forefront among American educational, institutions.
We use the words "can sweep" rather than the words
"will sweep" in speaking 'of Florida's prospects, because
we may never cross that threshold without lots of hard
work and intelligent planning.
During the war, many charges were leveled against
the football team. Things *re being improved in this de-
partment and'Florida seems to be Pn its way to great-
er football feats. We approve of the steps taken in building
up the University's Athletic department.
But what about some other matters-? It's good to build
a championship football team let's keep it up, but let
us not neglect the-building of a greater academic center.
A better and more extensive gradute- school and und,er-
graduate curricula should be our next step. Why not work
for this as well as a football team ? After all, the real test
of a University is its curricula, staff, and its dispensation
Sof liberal and ;progressive education.

Has Anyone Se n A 0ook?

Do you mind if we ask a blunt question?
What happened to the University Bookstore?
All week long lines have formed outside the
Bookstore door in the basement of Florida Usnion, but
a large number were unable to make ,the purchases
Granted the enrollment may have slightly ex-
ceeded expectations, some measures should still have
been taken to make' certain that so many studentss
shouldn't have to go bookless. After alj, most ,pf the
business of a university is parried on through the med-
ium of books.

Florida Traditions


The Pep Club has published a little orange-and-blue
covered booklet entitled "Florida Traditions."' Filled with
19 pages of pertinent information about th.e University
n-d freshman responsibilities, and last seen being dis-
tributed by the Florida Unipn desk, this little publication
should be in every frosh dresser or pocket, pot to merely
lie there, but to be studied and followed closely.
Included in these pages are articles on' the Honor
Code, freshman rules .(such as the wearing of rat raps),
space for the naming of athletic teamrn captains, coaches
and managers, Florida traditions, organization leaders,
and team yells and songs.
If you are a freshman and don't have ,one, find one.

Platter Chatter
With those festive holidays now a thing of the past and mid-year

platter-listening. You'll find you can get back to that physics or

the beloved ballad gets a streamlined rendition with vivid orchestral

As the campus swarms with'
new-found life, the University finds
itself swamped with students and
p.oblems. Wifh' crowded class-
rooms, overtaxed housing facilities,
and a war-depleted faculty, the
University is meeting the crisis.
However, the present situation em-
plasizes the even greater serious-
ness of the problems which will
confront the University next Sep-
tember when the enrollment is ex-
pected to take another big leap
Leaving' suclh 4nyoP.ye.1 t.pics
for wiser heads, we'd like to
wel((xme tile veterans 'back to I
11the campus. For the benefit of
the new students perhaps it
would be wise to reiterate the
aims and 'purposes of-this col-
unn. They are very simple:
lFirst, to' serve as a source for
news of interest .to veterans,
and second, to serve as a med-
"'mI for discussion of problems
pertaining to veteraIs apd vet-
erans' affairs. Questions, sug-
.gest'ions, and criticism m via the
mailbox will be 'welcomed.
Another topic of interest to the
new students is thie question of
whether to join "Gator Veterans."
We strongly urge you to do so.
"Gator Veterans" is a non-
partisan organizatiQp ppen to all
veterans. It serves as a medium
for bringing together the veterans
on the .campus fcr the purpose of
discussing and'acting on problems
of special interest to themn. Since
its inception in September, 1944,
"pator Veterans" has been very
effective in solving problems which
would have been difficult if not
iinpossible for an individual to
work out.
Among its cther functions, the
group brings prominent speakers
before the veterans on the campus
and throws in an occasional so-
cial event. The dues are very nomi-
The organization, in spite of
fears to the contrary, has not
developed into a 'political foot-
hall. Instead of becoming a po-
litical bloc as some feared-, 'the
group has split along the usual
party lines. ,Events have 'prov-
ed the non-artianhip of
"Gator Veterans." 'in the last

' u* i 1t-TAURUS EST
By Ted Nelson
' With the tremendous second
semester enrollment all but com-
pleted and the far more tremend-
ous housing problem still weigh-
ing down the minds and backs of
University officials, it was clear
yesterday that the old days, as
the old days all over the world,
would not come back again.
Enrollment is not the reason
for this, naturally. That's just
a convenient way of starting a
column. It's the question of the
"good old times" that comes up
for scutiny.
As the weeks wear into month:;
and most new men get settled in
the business of becoming educated,
in one sense of the word, it will
appear that pre-war conditions
have returned with the fellows
who left the campus years ago.
'True, there will be a lot of class-
es, a lot of subjects taught, many
more profs than there were last
year and the year before, crowds
of men wearing the grass between
the postoffice and Peabody Hall
thin; but that is only a superfic-
ial view.
A forty-year-old man miy
put on an old suit that he
wore when he was twenty.
He may' fel that old zest for
a second-but only for a see-
cond. A moment later he-
will remember the interven-
ing years, and the state of his
stomach, and the numbers of
his offspring.
That seems to us the campus
today. Many of the same faces
are back, besides a large number
of '.'h"-" who never saw Gainesville
before. But the voices are thus
far quieter, the purposes firmer.
The old hell- raiser is likely to
be more lonely than in the past,
because hell-raising has taken on
a different, also a more serious,
c m i-'lltuI ihnking? Perhaps.
Someone said that a soldier's
main object in fighting the
war was to get out of it and
home again. That's likely
to be a cmmonp attitude' in
relation to .the 'University.
"To get it over with and get

Two Colleges Add
Graduate Degrees

Ag., Forestry Additions
Available To Students
During This Semester

Keeping pace with Florida's
growing forestry and agricultural
industry, the University has add-
ed two new graduate degrees in
the School of Forestry and the
College of Agriculture Dr. John
J. Tigert, president, announced
here this week following Board
of Control approval.
The degree, Master of
Science in Forestry, will be
available to qualified students
during the current semester
and is designed to fulfill a
need for research in Florida's
growing forest industry in the
field of silviculture, its man-
agement, economics and utili-
zation. The degree of Mas-
der in Agriculture is also
available during the current
semester and is designed pii-
marily for students who want
more work without research
in the broader field of Agri-
culture embracing the several
Both degrees are designed for
students who want further study
in either forestry or agriculture
and fulfill a desire expressed by
returning veterans for additional
courses in the two fields.
Dr. H. S. Newins, director
of the School of Forestry,
points out that the degree in
Forestry will fill a definite
need for research in naval
stores, including studies in
the selection of gum produc-
ing trees of highest .yield,
genetics and heredity and re-
search in the pulp wood in-
dustry including studies in de-
velopment and mechanization
and wood preservation.
He illustrated the need for such
research in forestry, pointing out
that Florida is the seventh state
in the nation in forest area. He
said that Florida lends itself to
improvement because the climate
is conducive to rapid reproduction
if porperly protected from fire.
The University's School of For-
estry is one of 18 recognized
schools in the United' States and
is one of four ranking schools of
its kind in the south.

this past season, a parade was
held .downtown and not enough
of the Orange and Bluej stu-
dents came out to make the
affair interesting.' Is this the
fault, of the coach? Is it the
fault of the Board of Control ?
Is this the fault of the Gover-
nor? It is in the laps of the
students of the University of
Florida that the future of the
football teams of this school
lies in.
Now. someone wants to
know what he can do to make
the spirit come back to the
campus? Here is exactly what
to do. When a pep rally is call-
ed by the Pep Club, or by the
coach, attend and give sup-
port. Try to do everything pos-
sible to help the team and the
coaching staff.
Now for the most important of
them all. Try to give the new
coach a welcome never before seen
on this campus, one that will ring
throughout the complete state and
will tell the people of this state
we have a good coach and we are
proud of him. When he's seen on
the campus speak to him and make
him feel, at home. Make him feel
that when the Gators win he is
doing something for the students
of this school that will be appre-
We are sure if all will try to
get spirit back to this campus we
can, and will have, a first-class
football team and not one that
serves as a door mat for the other
teams in tlMe Southeastern Con-
ference, especially Georgia.
