Gator Vets To Lead

Red Cross Drive On

University Campus

Gibbons Says

Campaign To

Start March 1
The Gator Veterans have volun-
.teered to lead the annual Red
Cross fund drive on the campus
according to a statement made by
Sam Gibbons, commander of the
organization. The drive will start
March 1 and it is hoped that the
contributions will be such that
the goal can be reached in two
weeks time.
Gibbons will be working with
the Alachua County chapter of
the National Red Cross and the
contributions of the .students
will be turned over to Mr. W.
T. Laird, chairman of the chap-
ter. The sole basis of support
of the Red Cross, the only source
of finances for its many activi-
ties, is that received in private,
voluntary donations.
The total minimum goal assign-
ed to this county for this year is
$33,650. Of this $7,200 is ear-
marked as the national quota-
this means that 7876 percent of
the funds raised will stay here in
the county to be used for local
work. In 1945 the minimum goal
set for this county was $43,600 and
contributions amounted to $56.-
Dr. L. M. Bristol, chairman of
the home service committee,
stated that the work of the Red
Cross in World War II, as in all
times of disaster, is well-known,
but of even greater importance
is the assistance that is now
given to veterans. This assist-
ance includes, among many
things, counseling service and
financial assistance to those in

Given 76 Vet

Reorganize Here Housing Units
FPHA Representative

Composed Of
Ag. Students
The University chapter of the
Block and Bridle club* came to
life last Thursday night after a
hibernation of two and a half
years. Block and Bridle is a na-
tional organization of Ag students
interested in animal industry.
The standards for membership
are high, which lends a great deal
of pride to the organization, plac-
ing it on the level of a honorary
professional fraternity. The work
necessary for the smooth opera-
tion of the club requires a rela-
tive large membership.
In the past the local chapter
has had an average of fifty to
sixty students interested in the
well-being of the club. It is the
desire of the few boys here now
who are national members to
get the club back to its prewar
At the meeting Thursday night
there were about twenty members
besides the six national members
present, all ofi whom showed great
interest in being prospective mem-
members and in working toward
the goal of again having a suc-
cessful club.
The standards for membership
of the local chapter aire such that
when a pledge is taken in as a.
member he also has the necessary
requirements to become a national
Some of the main functions of
the Block and Bridle are to en-
tertain thile State Legislative
body at a barbeque at the Flor-
ida Homecoming week end,
sponsor the state Baby Chick
and Egg Show, and stage the
Little International Livestock
Show, the latter usually being
accompanied by a rodeo.
At the meeting Thursday night
the officers for this term were
introduced. They are' President,
Bob Barry from Newberry; Vice-
President, Berdett Schee, Largo;
Secretary Bernard Clark, Greens-
boro; Treasurer Johnnie Davis,
Walnut Hill; Reporter. Robert
Hibbs, Cocoa; and Marshall, Dick
Tracey, Miami.
The rest of the meeting period
was taken up by reading the
Club constitution to the pros-
pective members, stressing the
requirements to become a bona
fide member. In addition pic-
tures and programs of past ac-
tivities were passed around to
give an idea of what has been
done and what is expected of a
Block and Bridle member.
Block and bridle meets on the
second and fourth Thursdays of
each month at 7:30 in the Ag
Building. All Ag students with in-
terest in animal industry are cor-

To ome Here

The University of Florida has
been awarded 76 additional emer-
gency housing units for married
veterans, Regional Director John
P. Broome of the Federal Public
Housing Authority announced in
Atlanta this week.
Officials of the UniversiLy here
said, following a telephone call
to Atlanta, that it has not been
decided whether the units will be
at the Alachua, Army Air Base or
on the University campus.
The FPHA will send a represen-
tive here from Atlanta next week
to look over the situation.
If it is decided tlat the housing
at the air base is to be used, offi-
cials said, the University will be
eligible for buses in which to
transport the students and their
families back and forth.
The University originally- ap-
plied for use of the air base to
house single veterans, but revised
the application because of con-
tinued needs of married veterans
even after 100 housing units had
been erected in a campus subdi-
'vision known as "Flavet Village."
\ The Associated Press dispatch
frim Atlanta telling of the 76
new units here also said 68 had
been rewarded to the University
of Miami to bring the total there
to 150, and 10 for the Florida Nor-
mal and Industrial School at St.
Augustine to bring that institu-
tion's total to 30.

they will replace no more street

It seems that college students
should have better things to do

Hawley To Head

Memorial For

War Casualties

Professor Claude Hawley, of
the Social Science department,
was named secretary of a joint
alumni-faculty committee activat-
ed this week to plan a permanent
memorial for University alumni
who lost their lives in World War
Organized at the request of
President John J. Tigert, the
committee, composed of four-
teen representatives from the
alumni, faculty and student
body, was urged to begin imme-
diate planning for the selection
and designation of a permanent
war memorial to the approxi-
mately 350 alumni killed in the
recent conflict.
Professor Hawley, Dr. W. W.,
Ehrmann, Professor Fifield, Pro-
fessor W. L. Lowry, Mr. Allen
Skaggs, three alumni members at
large, three alumni veterans of
World War II and three student
veterans now in school make up
the committee.
E. A. Clayton, Gainesville at-
torney and chairman of the
conunittee, pointed out that se-
lection of the memorial would be
based on intensive study and in-
vestigation with a view towards
perpetuating for all time the
memory of World War II alum-
ni who lost their lives in the
service of their country.
Of more than 10,000 University
alumni who served in World War
II, approximately 350 are known
to have died, forty are still listed
as missing, and two are still pris-
oners of war, according to figures
compiled by Mrs. Lillian Relihan
in the University alumni office.

After Fabian, Bulldog center,
had opened the scoring with a
follcw-up shot, the Florida boys
gradually crept up and passed the
visitors to gain a 23-20 margin
by halftime; mainly on the nine

Florida received a stinging defeat at the hands of
the Bulldogs of Georgia Monday night in one of te of the most,
thrilling games of the year. Forty-nine fouls were called
in the game with the Georgians committing 29 and the
Gators 20.
The Floridians should have had the game in the bag
as they missed goals consistently, making only one basket
in the last half. With the exception of their foul shots
they did very little scoring. They did a superb job of mak-
ing their fouls as they sunk 25 out of 35. That should be
some, kind of a record.
Four Men On Court
Very few (people realized last Monday night that the
Georgia five played the last two minutes of the game with
just four men on the court. The mix-up came when Mad-
dox, one of the visitors' stars, was given the gate for
roughing Florida's Delgado. If Georgia's Coach Limpe
had sent in a substitute he would have given the Gators
a shot at the free throw line and put the. ball out of
bounds. The Gators could have made the foul, had the
ball out, and possibly tied up the score, but the coach de-
cided to (play the rest of the game with four men.
Full House
Last Monday night went far to prove this school
needs a new and much larger gym for their basketball
contests. Some 1,500 people jammed the place and many
were turned away at the door. It is probable that when
the Gators improve their basketball teams the fans will
come to see them 'play all the time.
Clever Gator
Ralph Licker is by far the cleverest Gator on the
squad this season, as he has proven beyond a doubt. Hart-
saw and Atkinson are superb shots but they do not come
close to competing with this boy in ball handling. In the
Georgia game he pulled tricks that made even the Geor-
gia coach stare with amazement. Licker has been in the
service some time and as yet has not had time to get his
eye sharp for the basket. When he starts hitting the hoop
he will be the Gators' outstanding player.
It is very probable that he will not be ready when
they journey to the conference tournament, but the other
teams ,of the loop had better look out for him when the
season rolls around next year.
Swimmers Attention
Coach Frank Genevar announced this week that he
is trying to get a meet with the University of Havana, and
if things work out right this will take place some time
in the latter part of March.
Baseball Try Outs
Working out with the baseball tryouts the last fe'w,
days have been Charlie Brady and John Corsey. Both of
these boys made all-state in high school and promise some
action for the Gators. Brady is from Miami Senior High
and was all-state third base in 1944. Corsey is from Jack-
sonville and was shortstop on the championship Lee

Lacy Mahon

The Phi Delt team of Gus Mendez and Francis Brown
defeated the Sigma Chi entry to cop the shuffleboard dou-
bles title last Thursday.
The crown was taken in three straight games in a
best three out of five match. This tightens the. Phi Delts'
hold on second place in the league, trailing the SAE's by
a very small margin. It looks like a neck to neck race
from now to the season's end.
Monday marked the opening of volleyball for this
season in the Intramural Dep'artment. The first round
was played with approximately 21 teams competing for
championship honors.
Games will be played every day on the courts near
the old gym. This should prove to be one of the most inter-
esting tournaments of the year as most of the clubs enter-
ing are back to pre-war strength and sponsoring hot ball
clubs. The finals should be running about Monday or
Tuesday of next week.
Next on the slate, according to Abbey Fink, intra-
mural director, is the race for handball singles. The. draw-
ing has not as yet been held so we won't be able to give
you the schedule of matches at this time. At the present,
plans are to hold the matches on the old courts on the
can4p:us. It seems, to me that much better facilities could
be provided for this sport. The walls could stand quite
a bit of work and the courts need something done on
them also.
S ,During the past week I received a query on how the
- all-campus teams are picked. To the best of my knowl-
Sedge they are usually picked by game officials. At the
- close of the sport each official is allowed one vote for
as many players as make up a team.
The players having the largest number of votes are
elected regardless of position. This has proved to be a
very satisfactory system because the officials usually see
/ more teams play than anyone else.
Don't forget to keep your eye on the intramural bul-
letin board for announcements concerning the schedules
of games.

"There is a greater emphasis

she continued, pointing out that
colleges there reflect the current

offering courses in the Russian

That was the light side of life
in the tropics. But most of the
time Awas taken up with the work
of an Army flier. In the village
between the Brazilian towns of
Sao Luiz and Amapa the scene is
like that of prehistoric times. The
settlement is mostly filth and dirt
and jungle growth. This is typi-
cal of most of the interior. Any-
where along the coast, a journey
20 miles from the sea will result
in an encounter with dense, al-
most impenetrable jungle. "Very
few of the fellows who were lost
in that growth," Rawls said, "ever
got out of there alive."
In Georgetown, British Guiana,
nothing could be seen from the
plane but a maze of jungle. Noth-
ing else was distinguishable.
About flying weather Rawls
remarked, "The only place in
which there was any really bad
conditions was between Sao
Luiz and Amapa. More planes
were lost here than anywhere
else in the area. Another dan-
gerous route was the trip from
the South American coast at Na-
tal to the tiny desert. island of
Ascension, where the U. S. ac-
quired a base in the destroyer
deal. It's a stretch of 1400 miles
of pure unadulterated ocean.
And then, when you get to As-
cension, you find a spot only
about eight miles square."
There is a legend that Ascen-
sion has only one tree. That's no
legend, according to Rawls. He
saw just .that number-one-on
the base itself. But in the center
of the island, which is nothing
more than a dead volcano, there is
a height known as Green Mt. This
has a cap of foliage that stands
out in sharp contrast to the bar-
ren volcanic ash surface of the
remainder of the atoll.
Incidentally, Rawls happened
to mention that rationing hit his
group on Ascension with remark-
able ferocity. Each man was al-
lowed two quarts of water per
day for all conceivable uses.

"THE BOLINVARS" Marguerite
F. Bayliss, Henry Holt & Co.
It is well to take the first re-
view on a book that has been
in circulation for nine years yet
has not, been widely read. It
is a drama in the best Webster
definition and, to my notion, excel-
lent movie material.
"The Bolinvars" might be called
an historical novel, although it
is not concerned so much with
a period in history as it is with
two cousins, Devereux and Hugo
Bolinvar, who lived, loved, and
hunted in that period of 1815. It
is -a story of dynamic adventure
and romance superbly written for
your enjoyment.
Devereux had the reputation
for being the finest horseman in
the western part of New Jersey
and his friends proclaimed him
the best anywhere. But when he
first laid eyes on Hugo as his
cousin rode the leegy bay colt up
the long white driveway, he knew
that he had seen a better rider
and a man that he could admire.
But a dreadful secret kept the
two at cross-purposes. How their
Spaths crossed time and time again
is told with consumate skill. "The
