Caldwell Hints

At Enrollment


Makes Comment
In Tampa
According to the Associated
Press, Governor Millard F. Cald-
well, in Tampa for the Florida
State Fair Tuesday, .commented
that the brcwded tourist condition
in the state had extended to the
University, and hinted that re-
strictions on enrollment might be-
come necessary in the near fu-
The Governor's statement
was somewhat broad, but the
general inference was gather-
ed from the following re-
marks. "Should it become
necessary to restrict out-of-
state students," he stated, "I
hepe the restrictions will be
imposed on a scholastic stan-
He added, "If restrictions are
extended to Florida students, I
hope they will be imposed on
those who are poor students from
choice and not because of in-
fericr training or physical handi-
However, the Governor was not
in favor of placing any lifnits on
the standards for enrollment of
ex-students who served in the
armed services.

Undoubtedly the most outstand-
ing character on the campus is a
young man named "Duffy." .
Students recognize the name.
It's displayed prominently in such
Places as the Post Office, dormi-
tories, classrooms, restaurants,
pool rooms, various dens of in-
iquity, etc. No place is too big,
too small or too, important.
This publicity campaign isn't
confined to the limits of Gaines-
ville. "Duffy's" name can .be
found in East Palatka, Tampa,
Miami, Jacksonville, Tallahassee-
practically every town in Florida
and even as far north as Aug-
usta. Maine.
"Duffy" covers as much
Around in his travels as Mrs.
Eleanor Roosevelt. Add to
this "Duffy's," many friends
here on the campus, in various
parts of the country, and inour
armed forces abroad who are
helping to spread the gospel and
you can see that this lad might
very well become world famous.
This guy "Duffy" really exists--
he isn't some mythical person,
though many people seem to think
so. True, he has achieved an
almost legendary fame. But
that's only natural. So many
know the name "Duffy" without
knowing the man "Duffy."''

Dr. Paul E. Smith of the Divi-

relations of the U. S. Office of
education will be on the campus
from Sunday and Monday to con-
fer on problems relating to the
English Institute. Dr. Smith .is
in charge of arrangements for the
national program of the institute.
The English Institute here
at the University is under the
joint auspices of. the Inter-
American Institute and the
idiivsion of languages and lit-
erature. It is a six-week
course for teachers of Eng-
lish from Lantin-America.
Professor Norman Eliason of

There are eight students in the

U. S. office of education.
The program at Florida, from
February 4 to March 17, covers
the study of English and methods
of teaching English as a foreign
language. This includes studying
techniques of Spanlish teaching by
visiting classes bot hat the 'Uni-

to carry on the .work of the vet-
eran organization.

The' "Most Handsome Boy" of
1944's Jefferson High School grad-
uating class came to the campus
of the University straight from
his present home in Tampa in
January '45, with his hat pulled
down over his eyes, a pencil in
each hand, and a marked Jersey
accent (the kid was born in Jer-
sey City)-ready to work his way
into the affections of his fellow
students, professors and any and
all women who might be interested
in swinging some sort of a deal.
And in the short time that he
has been here he has made notable
progress along all of these lines.
His countless friends are ample
evidence of hiis success.
On the surface "Duffy" might
appear to be a very conceited
sort of person but he isn't.
He's just supremely confident.
He goes into all of his undertak-
ings with that do-or-die air so
characteristic of many of our
most famous Americans.
Now to describe "Duffy's" phys-
ical characteristics. He is 5 feet
5 inches tall, has large brown eyes,
wavy hair, and eighteen hairs on
his chest.
And so now we leave you with
this picture of "Duffy" and the
revelation that his real name is.

Boo! It's Flunkenstein, Here

To Haunt All Freshmen

Early this week college boys
braved the antics of several as-
sorted monsters and ghouls in the
local cinema while breathlessly
thrilling to the performance of
the House of Dracula. Let it be
known that the University will
not be outdone by this fiendish
extravaganza; for herewith is
submitted the daring expose of
Gainesville's own House of Flunk-
This chamber of horrors
limits its torture to students
only; for daily the fates of in-
nocent men are decided with
the mechanical 'precision af-
forded only by a monster.
Flunkenstein, as most victims
know, grades all University
College examinations.
The machine is in the shape of
a common office desk. A record-
ing dial covers the top face of the
machine and papers to be checked
are fed through a slot at the
right. -Operating the mechanism
requires only three steps: insert-
ing the paper, punching the scor-

ing lever, and reading the results.
Men of Florida, your fate
is determined within the one
second interval between the
rise and fall of a lever!
If Flunkenstein has a heart it
is provided by Dr. John V. Mc-
Quitty, master of the menage.
The monster only records the raw
score. It is Dr. McQuitty's task
to figure the curve and determine
the letter grade. You may safely
breathe a sigh of relief, as Dr.
McQuitty is a. genial and most
sympathetic gentleman. The doc-
tor has several charming and
capable assistants.
Thus the strange combinations
that make up the House of Flunk-
enstein continue their all-impor-
tant work. The mad doctor's
laboratory is replaced by a mod-
ern office supervised by a mild
mannered gentleman. The man-
killing monster is a scoring ma-
chine. To "Man and the Humani-
ties," "Man and the Social World,"
and all the rest, may be added
"Man and the Atrocities." Or
wasn't that What we were talk-
ing about ?

Almost all the vet families
scheduled to move into the "Fla-

raphy lab and Murphree Hall had
sec up house in their new quarters
for the remainder of their stay in'
the University.
Erected at a cost of $250,000,
the project includes bedroom fur-
niture but is awaiting living room
furniture which was purchased
new by the University. The rent
charged the families is $26.50 for
one bedroom apartments, $29.50
for two bedroom buildings, and
$32:50 for three bedroom affairs.
The University is providing
lights and water without charge,
but the residents must furnish
their own costs for gas,' hot
water,, and central heaters. ,/

until graduation.

Monday, President John J. Tigert

Spirits.soared all over the University this week with
the arrival of "Bear" Wolf to the campus. The old hope
was awake again, the old battle-axe was drawn out of the
attic, and Florida men talked about "\ ictory"-with a fa,
miliar gleam in their eyes.
Coach Wolf was well-received by all circles in the
state which he contacted since his arrival. The various
pro-'loricda state sports writers grew almost enthusiastic
over the genial, atiable Wolf, who still maintained a cer-
tain air 01 discipline, of toughness, that was spoken of as
tne medicine the Gators need.
Vvon, however, was already busy. traveling about,
trying to line up more talent from Wvest and Southeast
1lorida cities., his assistants were hard at work planning
the work schedule ior the months ahead. This time it look-
ed like business.
But something appears to smack of old times besides
the Gator rooters gleamr it seems'that former coaches,
wnen they first got to Gainesville, were also fete. anu.
wined and dined until their luxury rivalled that of a no-
man emperor. And then something would go wrong, some-
uvicr'e a pin would lall into the machinery, one year tne
team would come out on tne losing end, and then a new
mentor was rushing to the Dry City to pull the bacon oui:

University,. it is plain tnat "'Bear" Wolf, regardless'of a
tougn schedule ior his first seAson, has a great oppor-
tunity for hoisting Floriaa back on the pedestal of toot-
ball lame.
But never for one moment can the spirit slackene.
Never lor one moment can, those who placed their trust.
in him allow that trust to be questioned. As when-a na-a
tion is declared in a state of emergency, the head of state
is given emergency powers, martial prerogatives, ultimate
confidence. ,
Thus it must be with "Bear" Wolf. His record proves
his worthiness. .-ut the' best coaches in the nation can do
little without material and moral support. At Pittsburgh
and Coll&ge of the Padific and New York University and
a host of others, that thesis has become a sadly accepted
" -axiom.
X0So let's get behind the "Bear," let's push and pull
and heave and lunge until a Florida team can sit down
or stand up to the best in the nation.
That's not an easy goal to, attain. It may take years
of unabated effort. But if the results are attained, almost
any effort will have been worth while.

Let's all pitch in and give the hard-working Seminole
staff a break. .

perfectly simple!

possible, notify them so they can set another date for

Assembly Encouraging. .

Perhaps this comes a little late, but that's due to
this business of publishing a paper once a week. The
thought strikes one that the general assembly last Thurs-
day night was one of the most encouraging sights on the
campus since John Cotten Brown, bossing the Alligator
back in '41, wound up and took a shot at old Red Tal-
It wasn't the best of events when one considers that
the number of people attending added up to about half
the total registration, and some of them were non-
students. But even that was a far larger percentage of
the student body than any that filled the auditorium with
feebles criers in the dark days of 1944.
The large number staying home or going to the show
was not complimentary to the fact that the rally was sutp-
posedly a demonstration of confidence in Coach Ray
"Bear" Wolf, but that may all be laid by the wayside,
It was still the best in years.

According to President Truman, peace has not been officially de-

campus of the University, we can all readily agree with the President.
Peace has definitely NOT been declared!

The following is the average veteran's conception of the return to the
Arriving in Gainesville, we find that the familiar landmarks are
*fundamentally the same. Here and there are a few changes, some bet-
ter, some worse. As for the campus itself, the changes are relatively
few. Thomas and Buckman Halls are receiving a new "hair-do"; the
new addition to Florida Union remains unfinished; (probably,, due to
scarcity in materials) the trees and grass remain the same; and the
University is still non co-educational!
Most of us returning to the University naturally expected a few
changes, but have found that everything in general is just about the
same as when we left. However, we have formed one opinion that
is unanimous! There are some things that never change among,
these are: college professors, ideas on co-education, and Artle Shaw's'

time yet, things are getting back to normal!

We roamed 'round the campus this week and asked some of the stu-

BOB JOHNSTON, 24, Soph., Chadburn, N. C.
"Definitely wet! To use the school's pet phrase, I do not consider
a man well rounded mentally or in any other respect until he has
learned how to indulge in drinking as a gentleman should-an art which
most professions require in modern society. It is a generally accept-
ed fact that those desiring to drink will do so, let's have an opportun-
ity to acquire bonded whiskey-the guarantee and protection that
every American citizen is entitled to."
REROY F. LEBOLD, 28, Freshman, Miami
"I prefer it dry because the University is located in the county.
Students and whiskey just do not mix."
MILLARD L. JONES, 21, Freshman, Lakeland.
"My opinion is that it should be wet because if people want wlhskey
they will get it anyway. It would help the county revenue very much,
thereby improving schools, etc."
ANDREW H. HINES, JR., 'S, Junior, Alachua, Fla.
"I am in favor of alachua county remaining dry. Theer is too much
drinking by those who can't hold it'already. The menace is not the
capable drinker but the amateurs. Repeal of the law would greatly
increase the latter class."
JACK HAGAR, 26, Junior., Ag., Orando.
"I think it should be like it is now: beer only. Of course the Uni-
versity is only a part of the county, but I think it would probably be
for the best interests of the students in the long run to have just
JOHN STONECIPIHER, 24, Soph., Orlando.
"Wet, definitely! If whiskey were available people could have a
drink or two here and still study, rather than killing the whole week-
end by running off in search of it. Our national experiment in prohi-
btion proved no good., and most armies find it is better to make it
available in moderation."
DICK WYKE, 25, Junior, Arch., Miami.
"Prohibition as we have it in this county has been a failure, due
to the laxity or inefficiency of the enforcement agencies and to the
fundamental behavior patterns of humans. There are quick methods
of improving the former, to change the latter is always hard. Any-
thing which is prohibited takes on the aura of Forbidden Fruit, human

The first newspaper to appear
on the campus had its publica-
tion on October 19, 190C. This
paper was titled "University
News," and bore the slogan, "a
sprightly college paper that de-
serves your patronage." It was
a semi-monthly paper edited by
Clyde Evens and Sam A. Sanborne.
Preceding its offspring, the
"The Florida Alligator." by six
years, the newspaper was a defin-
ite step forward in the progress
of the Florida student body.
The appearance of this news
coincided with the opening of
The University on Its present
campus. The first issue carried
University President A. A. Mur-
phree's speech at the opening
of the University, and the pap-
er's report covered three full
columns. Also appearing in
that issue, on the front page,
was an account of the first inter-
collegiate football classic with
pollins College.
The headlines were nothing more
than mere labels. Editorials of
timely significance, a society col-
umn, (such as it was.) sports,
apd exchanges occupied the inside
pages of the first issues. The
news never exceeded four pages,
and these were mostly taken up
in advertisements.
The News struggled for a bare
existence through some eleven
issues, then it lost what little
backing it had and completely dis-
appeared from the campus.

identify their quality more readily,
officials of the National Improve-
ment Plan, sponsored by the U. S.
Department of Agriculture, have
just.issued a chart that explains
the meaning of eight registered
trade-mark designs now widely
used commercially.
Four of the designs represent
the four progressive stages of

USDA plan, the other four stand
for different degrees of pullorum

four editions reveal only too
well the struggle and hardships
under which the paper was
puhbshed. Inadequate print-
ing facilities, and the appar-
ent inexperience of its staff
seems to account for many of
the News shortcomings.
The University News, although
lacking in many respects, cannot,
and will not, be forgotten in the
archives of University history, as
one of the first molders of under-

Erskine Gives Book Advice

At Library Tea Friday
Dr. John Erskine, in a pleasant, dent of the University, spoke to
informal talk at a Library Tea at various groups on the campus. On
which he was the guest of honor, rMondv he addressed the general

advised the library staff, students
and members of he faculty gath-
ered i nthe Florida Union auditor-
ium Friday afternoon not to buy
books that they do not intend to
read at once.
The speaker, who was intro-
duced by Professor Robertson of
the Division of Languages and
Literature as author, educator
and concert pianist, spoke on the
acquisition of books and building
of personal libraries, and gave
many interesting anecdotes from
his own collecting experiences,
both here and abroad. He advised
purchase of only as many books
as are desired for use and as can
be afforded. Books, he said.
should not be bought merely be-
cause they are available and one
ha sthe money. As in marriage,
lie suggested, if there's an option,
one shouldn't do it.
Dr. Erskine said further that
books should not be desecrated by
markings and underlining, not
because they are unsightly but
because, when you want to read
the book again, you may not be
able to lose yourself in the pleas-
ure of reading because of the in-
terruptions. His system, when
he wishes to make notes of ideas
and feelings, is to index them on
the blank fly-leaves of the book.
His own library has grown to
such proportions, the doctor ad-
mitted, that the volumes have
crowded into even the shelves and
tables of the kitchen. In bring-
ing his collection down from 20,-
000 to his preferred 10,000 he is

brary destroyed there at the time

The Fighting Florida Gators

as little Pete Hartsaw, the migh-
ty midget, tallied 20 points.
The Gators, who have play-

the basketball with satisfac-
tory accuracy. In tallying 66
points, with 60 of them by

up one of the highest scores
of the season.
For the fourth consecutive time
Hartsaw has been getting some

In a closely contested battle Bill Leavengood of the ATO hotel de-
feated Liggett Karney, representing SAE and captured the shuffle
single crown. Leavengood defeated Bill Rion, Phi Delt, the previous
day to earn his shot at the title, and Karney defeated Louis Ans-
bacher to gain the finals.
Rion, who was defeated in the semi-finals by Leavengood, was
last year's title holder. Jack Murray, finalist for the past few years
was conspicuous by his absence. Afternoon employment prevented
his participation in the event this season.
Now in progress is the hot match for the shuffle board doubles ti-
tle. No results have as yet been obtained but today will again tell the
tale when the finalist are scheduled to meet. Fink announced that
volley ball will start Monday as scheduled. Tihe demand for volley
balls has been exceptionally heavy in the' intramural department so
there should be some hot teams entered. The drawing has not as yet
been held so we can't give you the shcedule of matches in this print.

Track Rolls

Into Second

Week's Work
Three Lettermen
Back This Year
As the University track


rolls into the second week of
practice, prospects for the coming
season are none too bright. Al-
though there are a few experi-
enced men out for the initial prac-
tic:s mcst of the forty men re-
porting are very green.
Head Track Coach Percy
Beard announced that there are
many gaps to be filled and
would like any man having pre-
vious experience in track to con-
tact him, if interested in try-
ing for the team. This also ap-
plies to those without previous
training. He added that there
are men on the campus capable
of filling these gaps if their' in-
terest could be aroused. Piac-.
tice is being,held every day at
thle gym.
The schedule for the coming
season, which will begin sometime
in April, is not complete, .but fans
will probably get a chance to see
the team pitted against such
schools as Georgia, Auburn, and
Havana. Participation in the
State A.A.U. Meet, which may be
held in Gainesville, and the
Southeastern Conference Meet, to
be held in Birmingham, Alabama,
is certain according to Coach
There are only three .letter-
men back from last season,
around which the forthcoming
team will have to be formed.
These are John Ford and Robert
Bless, milers; and Oscar Miran-
da, hurdles.
Among the most promising new-
comers are Tommy Balikes of Mi-
ami High, javelin throw; Bobby
Ennis of Plant High in Tampa,
low hurdles; Jimmie Wilcox of
Plant Highjbhroad jump; Jim Rob-
inson, discus; Paul Weeks of Lee
High. hurdles. .
Balikes, Ennis, and Wilcox Ktook
top honors in their respective
"events in the -1943 State lIeet.
Robinson received training jn a

Weeks held second place in the
State Meet of. 1944.

Tally- Grams

By Barbara Wickham
Golly Day. I don't know when
I've seen the campus look as coed
as it did this week-end. G'ville
must have looked like a ghost
town in comparison. It really
was nice to see all of the fellows
up here.
.There was a dance for fresh-
men the Jennie Murphree
Dance -and there was a dance
for the Sophomores-the Sopho-
more Hop-and there was a lec-
ture for the upper-classmen!
That's the way things go up
here. I went out to watch the
msophomores hop after the lee-
ture and they all seemed to be.
having a large time. The gym
was decorated beautifully with.
pictures of the world's great
lovers (including one of our fac-
ulty members and his wife) and
cupid all over the place. The
big surprise of the evening was
the crowning of the sweethearts
of the dance. Betty La Bree and
Jack Me Millan.
While I'm on the subject of
dances I'll -tell you about the
queen of the Jennie Murphree
Dance who was Pat Dillard. Would
anyone like to vote for me for the
wreck of the junior class to be
crowned at the Junior-Senior
Prom? I've got to start my
campaign early.
I got a letter from G'ville the
other day. I don't know whether
to call it a fan letter or not. Any-
way I was glad to know that you
people down there can write and
I enjoyed the letter. My anony-
mous (please check for spelling)
correspondent sent in a crack
which I like'. A pun is the lowest
form of humor,, unless used first
by; yourself. Ain't it the truth!
The other afternoon as I was
quietly eating otter haunches
(have you read Zebra Derby,
Max Shulman's latest?) and
drinking my favorite limeade
with carbonated water no sugar
but a dash of cherry please, a
crewly mot of G'ville boys wan-
dered in. Always a good judge
of people I said to my roommate,
"Those look like Sigma Chis."
My roommate in a voice of awe
asked how in the world I could
tell. I decided to teach her to
be a judge of people, too, so [
disclosed my secret. By the
big signboards they are wearing
which say 'We'll do or dies for
Sigma Chi'." This can't help
my roommate tho cause I had
forgotten that she can't read.
Which reminds me. Have you
heard of the new rugs designed
'or sorority and frat houses which
are on rollers like a window shade
so that when you want to roll up
the rug to dance all you have to
do is pull a cord?
But enough of this chit chat
I must go back to the salt mines.
Come back and see us soon.

Gopher and Ed's

Last weekend your columnists
journeyed over Tally-way to
cover the Sophomore Hop. After
some trouble, we found a room at
the Floridian Hotel and took off
for the campus.
Women! Women! Women! We
never knew that the state of Flor-
ida had so many good-looking
women within its old rusty walls.
Take our advice men, see Florida
The University was well repre-
sented at this "Hop," we are proud
to say. This fact shows that
Florida men rank tops with Flor-
ida women and that's good for
the state as a whole.
Saturday afternoon found the
gym still undecorated, and many
Florida men were selected to help
the weaker sex ( ?) perform this
well-planned, but difficult feat.
After five hurs and two mighty
bruised thumbs, plus/a good coat-
ing of red paint, we were dis-
missed by the top sergeant. Wc
were of course tired, but we were
glad to have been of some help to
our fellow-sufferers at F. S. C W.
An orchestra from Camp Gor-
don Johnston furnished the music
for the dance, -and in your col-
unist's mind, they were very good.
The music ran from hot tC
srnooth, and then back up the lad-
der to hot again. Many 'Gators
displayed amazing feats of "jive"
on the dance floor. They certainly
must have been -in training.
Although there was a good rep-
resentation at F. S. C. W. this
last weekend, there still is plenty
of room for: improvement. We
urge all single men at Florida to
turn out fo rthe dances at Tally.
After all, men, these women .be-
long to you. If you doubt this
fact, just step into a dgrm and
yell "date." You have no argu-
ment, Brother- "actions speak
louder than words." Again we say
"See Florida first."-
Golfers who' shoot in the high
nineties can now take heart as
Jack Weeks has devised and prac-
ticed a remedy for quite some
This brand of golf is played by
watching your partner to see
when he gets back in the rough,
then you stealthily pick up the
.ball, being careful not to squeeze
it' to keep from deflating the darn
thing, walk calmly to the green,
and place it a foot frcm the oup.
Now you are ready for the big
moment, the putt. You grab your
trusty Number 1 driver and plac-
ing the head against the ball, you
gently push the ball into the cup.
This 'is a, very touchy action,
as you have to be- careful not to
let the head of the club leave the
ball. The, next step is to. yell to,
your partner, who is frantically
trying to get his ball through the
pine trees, that you have just
made a birdie.
There is another advantage to
this brand of golf. You never hit
the ball very much; therefore, you
can use ping-pong balls and save
lots of money.
Anyone desiring lessons in
"Sharecropper" golf get in touch
with "Hog" Weeks at either the
Ag. School or the ATO House.

Ye olde University certainly has
taken a change for something or

When I set foot on the campus,
for the first time in four years,
the latter part of last month, I
was totally unprepared fcr the
sight that met my eyes. Never,
in all my life have I seen so many
girls with that see-my-ring-don't-
come-near-me-hands-pff look. To
part from the strictly grammati-

never encountered feminine pul-

I have come to the definite con-
clusion that Florida men know
how to pick them.
From where. I sit, pounding the

numerous domestic activities, in-
cluding everything from taking
the offspring out for an airing to
washing shirts and whatnots,
mostly whatnots.
Not, don't get me wrong, be-
casuse I'm not a peeping-tom. It's
just the fact that I don't have any
other scenery to look at through
the windows of this three room

room, where I hold forth.

of students meets at the Wesley
Foundation for what is 'called a
Refugee Dinner. Here they are

'f brown bread, and all the *wa-
ter they can drink, for twenty-
five cents or more.
The' money from this simple
dinner goes into the World Stu-
dent Service Fund. The simplicity
of the meal served is to acquaint-
American students with the fare

and clothing, and medical sup-
plies. In addition, it is aimed at
loyal Japanese-American students

ing the war, fc.r student centers
