Enrollment Tops

First Semester

For First Time

Approximately 2900
Now In School

For the first time in the history
of the University, second semester
student enrollments exceeded first
semester figures as approximately
2,900 students registered here
through the close of registration
last Saturday.
Of the approximately 2,900
students, over 1,800 were vet-
erans of World War II. New
students enrolled this semester
who were not in the University
last semiester totaled approxi-
mately 1,700.
Approximately 1,200 students
who were in school last semester
'enrolled for the second term.
Exceeds First Term
R. S. Johnson, registrar, said'
today that second semester regis-
jration in pre-war years never had
exceeded the first semester fig-
ures and pointed out that return-
ing veterans had largely account-
ed for the increase this year.
With a majority of the regis-
tration in the first and second
year courses, Johnson said the
burden of assigning instruc-
tors and classroom space had
been placed in the freshman
and sophomore years. Classes
in the first two years are "ex-
tremely large" with instructors
doubling up to handle new
course sections in taking care
of classes.
Of the total registration, ap-
proximately 500 students comprise
a group who were attending the
University before the war and
whose education was interrupted
iby the war.
Registration for the first semes-
ter, including a six weeks' short
course started in November for
veterans, totalled approximately
1,500, while registration for the
same period last year reached 678
Complete registration figures
will be available as soon as all data
is classified, Johnson said.

John Marshall

Bar Association

Meets Monday

Elections Are

The first John MIarshall Bar
Association meeting of the cur-
rent semester will be held in the
Practice Court Room of the Law
Building -Monday night at 7:30,
Secretary-Treasurer Kenneth Van
der Hulse announced yesterday.
Graduation of President
Lewis Schott and certain oth-
er -officials of the organiza-
tion will necessitate elections
and some reorganization, Van
der Hulse said.
The local bar group, a chapter
of the Florida, State Bar Associa-
tion, listed as its members last
semester almost the entire law
student body.
Jess Wilder, in charge of mem-
bership, said yesterday, "With
such a large enrollment in law
school, we expect the organiza-
tion to be much stronger this
semester, and hope to surpass our
membership accomplishments of
last semester."

DeBruyn's Music

Book Published
A publication of a Univer-
sity professor was examined by
residents of the campus who are
interested in music this week as
Prof. John W. DeBruyn's "Simpli-
fied Position Sight Singing" ap-
peared under his signature. /
Based on' his experiences and
conclusions through years as di-
rector of the University Glee
Club, the little pamphlet carries
the slogan, "Divide, Combine,
Conquer." The primary thesis is
the mastery of relative pitches in
As DeBruyn states in his intro-
ductory notes: "A chain is as
strong as its weakest link. So
likewise in choral singing if even
a very few of the singers do not
know the exact pitches, the chords
sting will not be clean-cut but
'muddy.' Particularly will this
fault show in radio broadcasting.
Sight singing concentrates the at-
tention and the ear upon each spe-
cific interval, and the learning is
hot slipshod."

Pictures Set'

For Seminole

Karney Announces
Photographing Time

The taking,,of class pictures for
the '46 Seminole will begin Mon-
day, Ligget Karney, business
manager, announced yesterday.
The large room directly above
the bookstore in Fl iorida Union
has been selected as tihe site for
the sittings. Ralph Snerringer,
University photographer, will take
the portraits during the hours of
3-6 and 7-10 on weekdays. Stu-
dents will be notified of their ap-
pointments by postcard.
A fee of $1.25 must be paid
at the time of the sitting. Two
pictures will be taken, and
the student will have the op-
portunity of choosing the one
to be run in the Semincle.
Additional reprints will be
available at $.25 each.
Karney stressed the fact that
picture appointments must be
kept, if the student's picture is
to appear in the Seminole. Men-
tioning the greatly increased en-
rollment as a factor, he said. that
the job of photographing the stu-
dent body will be extremely diffi-
cult this year.
If a student cannot keep his ap-
pointment, he should notify the
Semincle immediately, so that an-
other date may be set. If an ap-
pointment is missed without noti-
fication, another date will not be
set and the student's picture will
not appear in the Seminole.

Tally Glee Club

To Perform On

Campus, March 2

Group Composed
Of Forty Girls

The Glee Club of the Florida
State College for Women, popu-
larly known as "Tally," will visit
the campus Saturday, March 2,
under sponsorship of the Division
of Music.
Forty girls will be included in
the group, which will arrive in
Gainesville early on the afternoon
of the' second, and remain until
some time Sunday.
The main feature of the visit
will be a concert on Saturday
night in the University audi-
torium, to which all students,
faculty, University employees
and inhabitants of Gainesville
are invited. A nominal ticket
price of twenty-five cents per
person will be .charged to cover
all possible costs incurred by
the girls during their stay.
To insure the success of the
venture, one that the Division of
Music classifies as of great im-
portance to the advancement of
more correlation between the ac-
tivities of the two divisions of
the state higher education sys-
tem, University fraternities are
being asked, in effect, to under-
write the concert by buying-blocs
of tickets. Each fraternity that
does this will be mentioned prom-
inently on the program. as co-
sponsor of the program and of the
F.S.C.W. Glee Club.
A suggestion has been offered
that fraternities already provid-
ed with regular dining rooms
and qualified house mothers al-
low some of the girls to share
the evening meal at the house.
Such a move, not yet officially
approved, would undoubtedly
cut down the expenses of the
girls during their stay, as their
residence will probably be at a
downtown hotel.
This will te the second visit of
the Tallahassee group to the cam-
pus in two years, the first com-
ing last year at the Homecoming
game with the University of
Tickets will be on sale some
time next week.

A meeting of Alpha Phi
Omega will be held on Thurs-
day night, Feb. 15, in the
Florida Union., It is impera-
tive that all members and
pledges attend.

To Be Sponsored
By Lyceum Council

Main feature -of next week's en-
.tertainment is the appearance of
the renowned mental wizard,. Dr.
Franz Polgar, in the University
Auditorium Friday night at 8
Dr. Polgar features in his dem-
onstrations remarkable feats of
memory and demonstrations of
the power of suggestion.
The Lyceum Council is bringing
Dr. Polgar to the campus for the
evening's entertainment and fa-
vorable recommendations from the
New York World Telegram, San
Francisco Chronicle and Saturday
Evening Post indicate that the
presentation here should be a s-uc-

director, for February 26, in the
University auditorium. Intention

fraternities in the Interfraternity
Conference, and the other to con-
sist of any clubs or independent
campus dormitory groups.

one of the jugs, the winner of
each to receive the award. Spon-
sored largely by the Glee Club,

that the vent will become a trad-
itional campus affair. The cus-
tom has been successfully estab-
lished at many state and private
universities in recent years.

Erskine Speaks

On .Education

in America

Calls: For American
Leadership In World
"Education has at this 'moment
the best opportunity it has ever
had, because for the first time
it has, or can have, a purpose,"
John Erskine, noted educator, told
students and faculty members of
the University in a public lecture
here Monday night. He called on
educators to work towards the
goal of American leadership in
world affairs for peace and unity.
iSpeaking on "American Ed-
ucation and the American
Destiny," Dr. Erskine pr'e-
sented his theory of the prob-
lems and inadequacies of Am-
erican education which must
be corrected to cope with the
American- destiny. "'Our des-
tiny is presented as a series
of obligations to the world.
Although unpleasant, it is
Dr. Erskine praised President
John J. Tigert fcr the improve-
ments he has effected for Amer-
ican education in the college field.,
"For once the purpose of the
student and of the teachers is
going to be one," Dr. Erksine de-
clared. To help meet our "One
World" expectation through edu-
cation he enumerated some of the
needs and how to meet them.
First, he said, there should
be proper education for boys
who must serve the country
in foreign service. "It ila it-
self is an educational advan-
tage, so why not 'prepare him
and relate education to it?"
Second, lie said, "Colleges
ought to use education to
meet the present economic
He concluded with the opinion
that Americans should be pre-
pared through education to meet
their neighbors in the Western
Hemisphere on an equal basis of
language and understanding.
Dr. Erskine was introduced by
Dr. John J. Tigert, president of
the University, in the P. K. Yonge

Editoriall//y Speaking

Speaking f Spirit .

Many a time in ,past years some nebulous thi .g call-
ed vaguely "school spirit" has been the topic of both
learned and unlearned conversations. General opinion
seems to classify this thing in the division of cheer-leading.
Spep rallies, yells, school songs, and other miscellaneous
l noises.
Is school spirit a sound or a state of mind ? There
are too many new men and women on the canmpius who
cannot be expected to know how and where that question
:applies to the U. of Florida.. But, with the old editorial
freedom of any reasonably unshackled iiewspal)per. we'll
sti'k our neck out and say that it's the latter, first and
This is not to deny the blessings of constructive acts
and constructive criticiAms. It is written merely to point
out that yells and cheers, unsupported by a deetply-felt
spirit of lasting devotion to the cause of advancing educa-
tion, and a greater University for the individ-ual who finds
himself part of it for three or four years, is a thing that
kills itself each time it is born.
To depend on sound waves is a superficial fallacy.
At basketball games the mass of students cheer wildly
when the Gator cagers are leading. As the tide turns
they girow silent, imorose, brooding, almost humiliated,
their minds haiuping on the raw score and not the sincere
'effort of the fellows who are fighting for them.
This is because there is no concerted movement, n'o
--train of tradition and ideals, motivating student spirits.
The honor code of student government, as we observe it,
is like the letter "X" in the alphabet. We put'it in the
middle of our words, but seldom start with it. .Like "X,"
no one challenges its place in the language. Like "X," we
could probably substitute "ks" for it and never miss it.
Call it the Honor System, pin it u)p, in big orange and blue
' posters all over the school, then tell it to-the, freshmen
who go back to their dorms or frat houses and listen to
the sophmoronic "They've got the honor and we've got
the system."
Last year a prominent campus politico was reproved
Sfor an action by a professor. He was a key man in the
operation of the honor code. His comment was, "Don't
tell me about conscience. I've got no conscience."
l How do these things happen ? Why are sacred tra-
. editions so-called, rc.egated to a place in the mud ? Why
is school spirit only for the poor henpecked frosh and the
alumni '.*
We attribute it to the students themselves. Too many
men have waited patently for a Messiah to come, and he
hasn't come. Too many want someone else to lead them
out of the wilderness. Too many join groups because they
fc.l they. have to, not because they want to.
Picture three thousand men marching side by side
in a torchlight procession, boldly singing out the notes of
Almna Mater. That is the campus spirit idealist's picture
,of the ultimate in'*cooperative proof or love for the old
But is love for an individual school more important
than reverence for the ,principles it theoretically repre-
sents ? Can loud demonstrations ever compensate for lack
of a feeling of inner unity of purpose and ideals, in which
not the fraternity, not the club, not the team, not the home

Has anyone shown such unity recently ? At the Uni-
versity of Utah students were told years might elapse.
before they could have a student union. Th'e campus
newspaper circulated a petition to raise student fees. A
tremendouss acclamation was the result, an almost unani-
mous approval of a sharp increase in student fees to pay
for the immediate construction of Utah's recreation hall.
Fortunately, we have a student union. But only a
few seem to possess the almost indefinable something that
passes for unity and .spirit, that got the Utes their cherish-
ed project.
It's foolish to repeat th.e old admonition "Let's get
some spirit." The approach seems to 'us to have been
wrong irom the start. One camnp,us prof tells us of the
Michigan instructors who in his day yelled themselves
hoarse for the Wolverine grid team. Another tells us of
the huge. bonfire in Miami last year in which 90 per cent
of the U. of Miami student.body burned the U. of Florida
in effigy.
These last examples are in a lighter vein. But they
only add further to the thesis that we have been a sadly
deficient unit in relation to a mass spirit.
Now, in February of 1946, most of the student body
is relatively new. For these new men and the few women
to allow themselves to fall into the rut of so many ,of their
predecessors would be criminal. The hot-and-cold flur-
ries of coeducation drives (let's make them all red-hot),
of the great team spirit at the beginning of each grid sea-
son, must be downed forever. The country doesn't think
or act as it once did, nor can the University, nor can the
What will the verdict be ? Before next Christmas the
answer will be known. On that answer the verdict of the
educational world and of the people of the state on us,
the student body, will rest.

Here's Background On

New Florida Coach

By Bill Boyd
A soft-spoken arid enthusiastic-
Texan took over the reins of the
football team this week, when
Coach Raymond '"Bear" Wolkf
came to town and immediately
got into the harness.
One of the first things Wolf
did was to name his first assist-
ant. Buster Brannon as backfield
coach for the coming season.
Brannon now is directing the bas-
ketball team of Rice Institute in
the Southwest Conference. He
is expected to join Wolf in time
for the opening of spring practice
March 1.
Right at the start Wolf met
the members of last year's eleven
ano! others who were interested
in football and told them of
springg practice and his other plans.
Next week he plans to make a
tour of the state, visiting Tampa,
Orlando and other parts of South
He has not named all of his
assistants and will .rinot do so for
the next two months. When he
gets his set-up complete he will
finish naming his staff.
Wolf, who was born in Chicago,
Illinois, in 1904, moved to Fort
Worth at the age "f four. In
high school at 'Fort Worth he
won letters in football, baseball,
basketball and track. He re-
ceived his nickname of "Bear"
when in high school, but has for-
gotten the reason for it.
He graduated from high school
in 1924 and in February of that
year entered Texas Christian,
where he received a bachelors de-
gree in Business Administration.
While in college he received letters
in football and baseball. He played
tackle and guard in college and
made All-Southwest, both in base-
ball and football.
Married in 1928, he has no

Dauer Speaks

To Rotary Club
"We are trying to give the Jap-
anese a reasonable living that will
not depend on conquest," Dr. Man-
ning Dauer, professor of political
science at the University told the
Gainesville Rotary Club Tuesday.
Dr. Dauer recently resumed
his duties at the Tniversity
after being separated from the
armed service. He saw duty as
a major with the Fifth Air
Force in both the Mediterran-
ean and Pacific theatres, and
spent several months in Tokyo
before returning to this coun-
Speaking on the subject "Japan
Today," Dr. Dauer predicted it
would take from 10 to 20 years to
complete the program now being
carried out in Japan.
He listed as the principal objec-
tives the breaking up of the finan-
cial monopoly of a small group,
separation of church and state,
educational program, demobilizing
the military, and drafting anew
"The Japanese do not see a
lot of difference between Hir-
oshima and their other great
cities," Dr. Dauer said, ex-
plaining that most of the ma-
jor cities' were from 70 to 80
per cent destroyed by re-
peated bombings.
He added that tha.fundamental
facts facing the Japanese were
this destruction and the failure of
their past system of government
under which the Emperor was held
responsible for everything.
Dr. Dauer described how the
small monopolistic financial group
used their power to build up the
Japanese home industry and im-
perialism abroad, while the people
were being told by the militarists
that they should sacrifice every-
thing and concentrate on the build-
ing up of the military establish-
ments. I
He revealed further that the
Japanese people in the past had no
popular participation in govern-
ment. City officials were appointed
by the Interior Department, while
the people only elected a represen-
tative to parliament in contests in
which issues were seldom raised.
Dr. Dauer spoke favorably
of the new Four-Power Coun-
cil set up to determine the
policy to be followed in the oc-
cupation of Japan, stating that
it "seems to be the only logi-
cal' answer." .
Prior to his tlk Dr. Dauer high-

By Barahara Wickham
What is so fair as a Sunday
in Tallahassee? ..I can think of
numerous things but I happened
to be in Tallahassee so I had to
make the best of it. We've
started taking bus rides around
this place ,to entertain ourselves.
Do let me give you a brief de-
scription of the city. Tallahassee
is an Indian name meaning "aban-
doned town-site" but they didn't
abandon this one quick enough
and it was' chosen for the state

capital. It is picturesquely sit-
uated on umpteen million hills (you
can tell how long a girl has been
in school here by the muscles in
her legs). Everything that isn't
up is down.
The entertainment facilities
of this burg are something
out of this world. That's the
only way I can .explain them.
There are three moom pitcher
shows, two of which are the
shoot 'em up pop corn selling
tyle. Then there are the
eating places-all three of
them-where you can get al-
most any disease from scurvy
to ptomaine. There are lots
of lovely parks and a wonder-
ful golf course located within
a convenient three days hike
from the center of town. The
-local chamber of commerce
will be' glad to answer any
letters 'from those interested
in locating here.
Hope the G'ville boys who
spent the week-end up here for
Youth Conference didn't freeze to
death. I heard one boy say
that he had been so warm that
he arose all during the night to.
take plunges in the pool. (For
those wh6 don't know-they stay-
ed in the gym). It really was
good to see their smiling faces on
campus. Come back and see us
Did you hear that until a
girl is 18 she is a minor but
after that she is a gold digger.
Now I don't think that's being
very fair at all.
What's the future in going- to
college? After all, most men prefer
a woman- who is well formed to
one that is well informed. Or
so they tell me. Anybody want
to argue the point?
Wouldn't all you fellows like
to chip in and buy me a sub-
scription to some good humor
magazine so there will .be some.
good, jokes in here ? I do the
best I can, but usually the best
ones can't be printed.
I have a friend up here (all
right, 1.11 quit bragging) who
is suffering from the illusion
that she can speak French.
She goes around all day mut-
tering "Chevrolet coupe on ze
highway" through her nose.
She is transferring to Chatta-
hoochee next term.
That's about all the chatter for
this time. -Hope to see scads of
you fellows at the Sophomore Hop

Talent Search
Young writers who are seeking
a career in radio will find an
opportunity to achieve their am-
bitions When the Mutual Broad-
casting System inaugurates a
new halfhour dramatic show, "The
Carrington Playhouse," beginning
Thursday, February 21 (8 to 8:30
p. m., EST). Only original scripts
will be used on this series which
will be produced by Elaine Car-
rington, famed radio script writer,
author and playwright.
Mrs. Carrington has long felt
the need for means of discovery
of new talent in the field of radio
dramatic writing. Sharing be-
lief in this need, MBS is making
available its facilities for the pres-
entation of this unusual series of
Carrington Award broadcasts.
These 'awards have been estab-
lished in recognition of a need
for new creative talents, for new
ideas and innovations that will
ultimately contribute to a higher
calibre of radio entertainment.
Phillips Carlin,- MBS Vice Presi-
dent in Charge of Programs, re-
ently stated: "Mrs. Carrington and
I believe that the future for radio
as a dramatic medium must de-
pend, in the final analysis, upon
new talent. We are convinced
that there is a great reservoir
of talent in our schools and col-
leges and among our returning
service men. In. recognition of
this we are starting this new
dramatic series."
Rewards for accepted scripts
will be both in money and in per-
sonal recognition to the author.
Writers whose scripts are accept-
ed will- receive $200 plus the na-
tion wide recognition that goes
with having their drama beamed
throughout the country by the
far-reaching Mutual network.
In addition, all winners will
automatically become eligible for
the special 'Carrington Award of
an additional $500 and a hand-
some plaque, which will be awarded
for the best script submitted dur-
ing any 13-week period. Mrs.
Carrington herself will appear on
each broadcast to give full "name
credits" to the author and his
school' or organization.
Perry Lafferty, recently dis-
charged from the Army, has been
selected to direct the show. John-
ny Gart will compose and con-
duct original musical scores for
each program. Through the com-
bined efforts of these men and
other Mutual staff 'experts, the
author's original idea will be re-
fined and enhanced. Each win-
ner will.receive a recording of the
broadcast and since all dramati-
zations will feature finished pro-
duction casting and rich musical
backgrounds, authors will have an
extraordinary "show case" pres-
entation of their efforts.
The network is .oiicitfi'g the
cooperation of established radio,
dramatic and journalism depart-
ments of universities and colleges
throughout the country to unearth
new writing talent. -The radio
writing departments and work
shops ,of all higher educational
institutions embracing such cours-
es have been advised of the Car-
rington Playhouse series, and en-
try blanks are being made avail-
able to all personnel through their
various department heads.

Every day there is new and
devastating evidence that women
are forsaking that which has for
centuries kept them guarded from
strenuous work, deep thinking, and
indelicate situations,. For cen-
turies they enjoyed carefree ex-
istence. Men had taken it for
granted that they were the weaker
sex-fragile creatures for decora-
tion, useless in progress. Their
hands were for soothing weary
brows of tired men after a long
day's work; never were they for
the operation of a machine. Their
forms were fbr the pleasure of
man's vision; never for exhausting
tasks. Their heads 'bore the lat-
est creation from Paris. They
never held a serious thought. It
was man's duty to feed, clothe,
and entertain women.* Women
were humored, pampered, and
sheltered from the world.
Unfortunately, some of the
more vigorous and short-sighted
of our sisters of a few decades
ago decided they wanted to seek
genteel employment-thehy wanted
to work! They wanted to get
up regularly every morning and
work eight hours a day in an of-
fice. They were sure they would
compete with the men. They
could and did. The inevitable
happened. If the women could
work as well as the men, Why
could they not vote as wisely?
Women should' have -equal Tig'hts
with men. A campaign for
women suffrage was undertaken,
and it was not long before the
women appeared at the polls.
Things were progressing from bad
to worse.
It was only natural':, that the
next generation should go a step
farther. Some of our sisters
decided they were as capable as
the men in thinking. It followed
logically that they could manage
the affairs of government quite
as well as the men were managing
them. Soon there were lady
mayors and senators.
Necessity entered the scene
about this time. With many- mil-
lions of men at war it was essen-
tial that women invade industry.
Previously that was indisputably
and exclusively a: manhrs world.
A startling truth was revealed.

The weaker sex carried out the
men's work admirably.
In this progressive course of
events it is easily seen what has
happened. More and more evi-
dence accumulates and the facts
show clearly. Less and less are
women pampered, sheltered, and
protected as 'they were under the
old system. Woman today is
quite able to take care of herself.
What is more, the fact is common
A state of equilibrium exists
at present, but a crisis is at hand.
Which way will the situation turn?
Will the men gradually become
more and more dependent on the
women for their support? Will
they allow the women to retain
their coveted jobs while they stay
home with the cooking? Will they
decide the women can manage the
government competently, and free-
ly turn over the headache? Will
they begin an emancipation cam-
paign for freedom from the re-
sponsibility of voting? Will the
men let it be a woman's world
and crawl up on the deserted ped-
estal for a nap?

Wolf Tells 96 Galors

Studies Are Important

New Coach Explains
His Style Of Play

Coach Ray (Bera) Wolf, speak-
ing before 96 prospective 1 94 6
Gator footballers Tuesday in the
University gymnasium, empha-
sized the importance of education
to the athletes.
Wolf, speaking forcefully, said,
"Football should not be an end
in itself. Every one of you should
have graduation from the Uni-
versity as a goal and aim toward
that during your entire college
"My experience has been that
football players whose minds are
free from worry about their
grades are better players, as a
rule, than those who are cont-
tinually on the border line as far
as passing school work is con-
cerned," he said.
With only one senior and
three juniors present, the
prospective members of the
1946 Gator eleven listened at-
tentively as Coach Wolf brief-
ly explained the single and
double wingback formations
from an unbalanced line that
he will employ next year at
The head mentor then spoke of
the "common interest" that every-
one had, that being the Universiy
of Florida and the betterment of
the school.
-'After the coach had finished
his short talk, slips were passed
around and each man filled in in-
formation on equipment sizes.
In view of yesterday's turnout,
it seems safe to predict tliat over
100 men will be working out next
month when spring football prac-
tice rolls around.
Coach Wolf will be presented
to the entire student body Thurs-
day night at a student "rally" to
be held at the University audi-
The first out of town visit by
the new mentor is slated for next
week, when Wolf and D. K.
(Dutch) Stanley, director of the
Division of Physical Education,
Health and Athletics, will be pres-
ent at the Quarterback Club meet-
ing in St. Peterburg. Other South
Florida towns to be visited dur-
ing this three-day jaunt are Or-
lando and Tampa.

The College Inn



By Bob Mann
In general, it seems to me upon
returning to the campus that the
situation with respect to the Uni-
versity has improved. But pro-
gress has been notably lacking in
some things.
Progress, in the Southern tradi-
tion, has been the maintenance of
slight forward momentum with the
least possible expenditure of mon-
ey. But recent allocations of
funds totaling over a million dol-
lars for improvement at Talla-
hassee and Gainesville (We get a
$35,000 auxiliary sewage disposal
plant out of the, million) lead us
to believe that within the next few
years our institution might grow
into its logical place among the
nation's universities.
In the long run, the school's
reputation will be traceable to
its facilities. Yet salaries
for professors and appropri-
ations for facilities for re-
search in engineering and agri-
culture are below the mini-
mum necessary to operate a
top-notch modern university.
Only recently a proposal was
made in Tallahassee to throw the
profits of the enterprises such
as the University Bookstore, the
cafeteria, etc., into the state's
common fund, to be paid out as
seen fit by the state administra-
tioh. Dr. Tigert, along ,with Dr.
Campbell and Dr. Gray' of the
Tallahassee colleges, protested.
With books selling like hot cakes
and the cafeteria doing a good
business the story we get from
Tallahassee is, "Let us hold the
money. We'll give it back to you
when you need it." And so the
politicians battle the educators
while the students return to a
university which has not as yet
been promised an establishedment
large enough to accommodate the
state's educational needs.
Petty considerations such as
cafeterias and bookstores will
continue to cloud the issue un-
til we get down to the basic
need and execute a plan for
its fulfillment: Florida needs
a university of greater intel-
lectual rank in the nation. We
can't use a substitute. Don't
let them pawn off on us an
assembly line for the manu-
facture of Bachelors of Arts,
etc.' What ,we would genu-
iiely like to have is an institu-
tion nationally respected for
its development of intellect
in the state which it serves.
S.Remember, gentlemen, that our
school represents the state of
Florida. What does 'the nation
think of it ? How does, it rank
educationally? Is it a breeding
ground for such Southern speci-
mens as Bilboa and Talmadge?
Or has the nation even heard of
us? Let's have your opinion.

40ot4 TAURUS E By Ted Nelson
For years an emergency war-
time constitution has rested in the
place of the original document.
But that situation will soon be
There are many controversial
terms in the wartime setup. But
there are more of these in the old-
er paper. One of the most im-
pressive from the standpoint of
effect on the entire University is
that of political nominees for
posts requiring specific qualifica-
There is a sp-~citc move under
way to make these responsible
positions harder to qualify for.
This is not in any way to imply
that many members of boards
and committees of this nature
have not during the past or pres-
ent, been fitted for their posts.
In most cases a man has been
chosen for an appointive or elec-
tive post outside the ranks of
the Senate and Honor Court be-
cause his record justified the
choice. If this were not true
student government at the Uni-
versity would have fallen by the
wayside long ago, or been ,given
over to strict faculty and ad-
ministration supervision.
But the problem still needs
clearing up. At some time or oth-
er a Lyceum membership may be
granted a student whose only
qualification is his affiliation with
the right interests. The result is
sad to contemplate.. Only the in-
terference of faculty or adminis-
tration could make the workings
,of the council compatible with the
high reputation of .the University,
as the foremost center of culture
in the state of Florida.
If a need for stricter pre-re-
quisites for non-political jobs in
student govenrmqnt. comes to a
head in the near future by a
consitifutiunal lore of the sl.u-
dent body itself, it might be well
for every Florida man (and
woman, things now being slight-
ly modified) to give the reform
full-hearted support.
To insure the continuance of
strong and free student govern-
ment in all its phases, to serve as
a base for training ourselves to
build a greater state and democ-
racy, to uphold at all times the
cultural, reputation of the Uni-
versity, our leaders must always
be chosen from the highest strata
of ability and qualification.

Lt. Col. George Curtis Crom,

former resident of Gainesville, dis-

appearing in the January issue of

"Make control automatic, make
it reliable, eliminate the personal
element so far as possible from
things which should be automatic,"
says Lt. Col. Crom. He writes of
the advances in electrical engineer-
ing towards automatic flying and
tells of new safety controls soon
to appear.
"When WRUF, the University
radio station, was established in
1928, Lt. Col. Crom was sent by

Green Cove Navy Wins

Over Gator Five 65-38

Florida Unable

To Stop Former

Santa Clara Star

After a four-game road trip
through Alabama, and Georgia, in
which they won only one game,
the Florida Gators came home
and continued their losing ways
as they met defeat at the hands
of the powerful Green Cove
Springs Naval Air Station by a
score of 65-38.
The game was fairly close in
the early stages as the Gators
grabbed an 8-2 lead before the
shooting eye of Abel Rodrigues,
former Santa Clara star, started
hitting the basket. The Navy boys
grabbed the lead in the middle of
the first half and then built it
up until they held a 25-19 lead
at halftime.
During the last half the win-
ners scored at will and kept the
scrappy Gators from getting any
open shots.
The star of the night was easily
determined as Rodrigues shot bas-
kets from all angles and never
seemed to miss. The fine pass

work of the Green Cove team baf-
fled the Gator defense. Rodrigues
racked up 13 baskets and three
foul shots to score 29 points for
the night.
The Gators looked very ragged
on the offense as well as the de-
fense as they could not rebound
their missed shots. Little Pete

for the 1946 grid season, Buster
.Brannon, as backfield coach.
Brannon is'36 years of age, is
married and has one boy. He
was coached by Wolf when he was
quarterback for the Texas Chris-
tian "Horned Frogs" in 1930-31-
32. Brannon is a. strong believer
in the double and single wing for-
mation which will be installed
here for the coming season.
Wolf, at an informal meeting
with the squad Tuesday, seemed
well pleased with the men pres-
With the naming of Brannon as
backfield coach, what will happen
to Coach Pittman, who has guided
the Gator pigskin carriers for the
last four years? Also Brannon is
a basketball coach and it is pos-
sible he will coach the Gator
hoopsters in 1947. Now he;is guid-
ing the Rice University five
through this season.
Basketball Slants,
With their win over the Georgia
"Bulldogs"' in Athens last week,
it looked like the boys might
come out of their doldrums, but
they came right back Tuesday
night and went down to 'defeat
before the Green Cove Springs
Naval Air Station five by a, score,

Thei nain .cause of'the G.t.:.rs'
defeat seemed to be the failure
to get the ball off the backboard.
The loss of Bill Atkinson, versa-
tile Gator center, has hurt the
hoopsters very much.
Auburn In Two Games
The basketeers will meet the
Auburn five in two games Friday
and Saturday nights. They .have
met defeat at the hands of the
"Plainsmen" twice this season in
The opinion of the players is
that they can take the visitors
in the local gym. We hope so.
Swiutmners Attention
All of you would-be swimmers
and fish that would like to come
out for the swimming team should
contact Coach Genava who is try-
ing to get up some type of swim-
ming team.
Basketball Game Attendance
One of the first indications of
the large enrollment here at the
University was the large crowd
at the game Tuesday night. Al-
though the Gators did not give
their rooters much to yell about
they did make some noise.

'Students and their wives
interested in jobs either part-
time or full time are asked
to- contact Dean J. Ed Price
in the basement of Language
Hall. A large number of jobs
of all types are open.

On Men and Women's


Sledd Archway

By Donald Walker
The theme of "Doll Face," at
the Florida Sunday and Monday,
is the well-known theme of the
show team trying to make Broad-
way. But Vivian Blaine, Dennis
O'Keefe, Perry Como, and Car-
men Miranda manage to make it
Vivian Blaine is known as the
"Cherry Blonde" and with her
voice has become a feature of
many 20th Century-Fox musicals.
And, though of a different sort,
Carmen Miranda and Perry Como
get in a bit of vocalizing .in "Doll
The film concerns itself with
the saga of a "burleycue" special-
ty singer-dancer who sets her
heart on legitimate stage star-
dom. As her manager knows Doll
Face is beautiful and talented, but
she lacks that extra something
uptown producers refer to as "cul-
ture." Her manager then proceeds
to provide her with culture and
to groom her from Broadway.
Colonel Effingham
"Colonel Effingham's Ride" is a
film of homespun humor and sen-
timent. Charles Coburn returns
to his small home town in the
South after a long career in the
Army, aflame with civic ardor,
and orates himself into a job with
the local newspaper as a war
Much to the stunned amazement
of Editor Allyn Joslyn, the colo-
nel's first column goes off like an
artillery .,barrage. Instead of
analyzing the course of World
War II, Coburn turns his fire on
the local politicians.
William Eythe, a reporter about
to go off to the wars, saves the
day for the colonel and the public
is aroused against the politicians.
Along with the colonel's crusade
runs the romantic story of
Eythe's slowly awakening love
for the society editor, Joan Ben-
n e tt. "Colonel Effingiham's,
Raid" is a 20thd Century movie,
playing Tuesday and Wednesday.
*With the veteran western star
John Wayne and Vera Hruba Ral-
ston (off skates), "Dakota" may
be classed :as a Super-Western
show. For there are the usual
fist fights and stage-coach chases
tied in with saloon scenes. The
film is Republic, producers of most
of the Saturday Westerns. Ward
Bond plays the film "heel" and
Ona Munson, saloon girl. Walter
Brennan, commonly playing sym-
pathetic roles, is Captain Bounce.
