Appointed by Gator Veterans
to investigate the reasons for

the beginning of the 'present se-,

the situation, less book sharing,

stated, there have been fewer

the fact that all veterans buying

demands on that apartmentn.

When the U. of Florida club goes to Tallahassee it
is customary for the girls to turn out in literal droves, in
many cases even if they had something else in mind, for

So let's show the same spirit and turn out the same
large crowd to applaud their efforts. They are, in more
senses than one, our sisters as well as neighbors. Regard-
less of occasional differences in view we are convinced
that our ultimate greatness lies in our ultimate Identity

the twenty-five cents admission charge, and more.
Let's Appoint Publications
In the past, top positions in the publications (editor
and business manager) have been elective with the excep-
tion of the Alligator. This means that when the student
body reverts to the old constitution in April, the Semi-
nole; Orange Peel, and "F" book student executive posi-
tions will be thrown open to be decided at the polls.
This, we think, is not good policy, because work of
this type is technical-work that needs several years train-
ing to qualify a man to handle it competently. Anything
might happen--the good politician (who might be elect-
ed to fill one of these positions) is not necessarily a good
( ditor or business manager. It would put the publications
too far into politics-and quite possibly would make the
entire field a ,political football.
We propose, therefore, that a special election be held
before the April elections to amend the constitution and
put the selection of publication executives under a spe-
cial board. We feel that this board could make a closer
study of applicants-and could more easily, keep in con-
tact with the various members working on publications
to check their qualifications and technical skill.
By Jack Doherty
One of the most encouraging
signs this reporter has yet seen
that conscientious leadership still
exists on this campus has been
evidenced in recent days by the
stand taken by the Gator Party
regarding a broadly representa-
tive student government. This
party, which in the past has been
the more influential one in cam-
pus politics, has vigorously as-
serted that the first step toward
nominating a truly representative
slate of officers is to give every
faction of the student body a voice
in the selection of nominees. The
party has already taken steps to-
ward making this doctrine an ac-
It is indeed encouraging that
someone should spearhead such a
move to correct the inequalities
which grew up is the nomination-
system 'during the war years. Un-
der a system carried on in this
manner, the bossismm" which has
flourished to some degree during
recent years should be minimized.
If such policies are carried on per-
manently, we predict'thaL Florida's
Honor. System will be Secure. No
one organization will be able to
control the student government
for its own interests. This is as
it should be.
To be truly democratic, out stu-
dent government must not be con
trolled solely by eiLer frat 'men
non frat men, or veterans. To stea
a term from the precise logicians
it must strike a "happy medium'
between all these interests.
That the pre-war student consti'
tution is being reinstated this
spring will be welcomed by al
who have witnessed the vacilla
tons of the student government
during the war years. The con
fusion regarding the relationship
of the old constitution and the
emergency amendment has been
most disconcerting to conscien
tious student officials.
They have often felt that some
clear-cut action should be taken
regarding the status of the char-
ters of the student body organiza-
tions and the student body laws
which were not actually a part o:
the constitution. Some of the
most controversial issues of the
last few years arose from the un
certain status of the charters and
laws. Revocation of the amend
ments should eliminate the source
of such confusion in the future.
However, we still contend that
student senate which was "on the
ball" would have eliminated, or
called upon the Honor Court ti
clarify, all such doubts.

Mr. Jack Doherty
C/o The Fla. Alligator
My dear Mr. Doherty:
On behalf of the Dixie Party, tradi-
tional non-fraternity party of the campus
of the University of Florida, I commend
you on your stand as to the question of
proper representation of non-fraternity
men in student body government. This
represents exactly the temper, the spirit
and the attitude of all members of the
In the summer of 1945, when politi-
cal interests and participation were at
their lowest, a group of non-fraternity
men, determined to achieve this goal you
speak of, reactivated the then underdog
Dixie Party. This same group is still
unequivocally committed to that objec-
Because of an apparent lack of infor-
mation, however, your statement "even
the names which are placed in nomina-
tion by the parties often do not repre-
sent the choice of the, whole party" is
most unjust and absolutely incorrect
when applied to the Dixie Party. The
following are indisputable facts.
The nominating committee of our par-
ty is composed of an equal number of
fraternity and non-fraternity representa-
tives chosen on what we believe to be
the most. democratic basis possible. The,
procedure is as follows:
(1) Non-fraternity members of the
Dixie Party elect at an open conven-
tion the men they want to represent
them on the nominating committee.
(2) Then non-frat representatives,
in conjunction with the chosen repre-
sentative (one) for every fraternal
organization in the party, nominate the
party's candidates, ALL of whom must
be approved by the WHOLE of the
Dixie Party membership.
(3) The four officers of the party,
three of whom (incl. president) ace
non-fraternity students, participate in
(4) Candidates are selected for
their popularity, integrity, and quali-
The exhibited confidence of the stu-
dent body has confirmed our conviction
in the ideal of democratic government
truly representative of every faction on
In the last election the student body
approved our efforts by electing 22 Dixie
Party candidates as compared to 11 for
the. entire opposition. During the sum-
mer sessions of 1945, the Dixie Party
elected the only non-fraternity president
of the student body elected in at least
In the last election (September), of
the 33 candidates nominated by the Dixie
Party, 16 were fraternity men, or '48 per
cent. Of the 27 candidates nominated by
the Gator Party, 20 were fraternity men,
or 74 per cent.
In the University College, from which
the great majority of students are repre-
sented, 100 per cent of Gator nominees
were fraternity men, while 43 per cent of
Dixie's slate were.
In a paid political advertisement last
t. week, the chairman of the Gator Party
said, "In line with' its past policy, the
Chairman stated that it was the intention
of the Gator Party to fill as many of these
offices with qualified, non-fraternity men
Could it be that it was not "possible"
for them to find a single, solitary, quali-
fied non-fraternity man in the entire Uni-
versity College ? Figure it out for your-
Obviously, this statement c a n not
stand, in the face of fact. Already arous-
ed the ire of the bosses of the Dixie Par-
ty? No, for they do not exist. Inspire the
r indignation of the party? Yes.
We welcome your stand and appre-
s ciate your courage, especially since the
fraternity to which you belong is affili-
ated with the Gator Party, the only party
logically eligible to receive your blasts,
which must of necessity be discomfiting
l to them in view of their past record.
We believe your intentions were
good, but your source of information in-
adequate or non-existent., Please, Mr.
Doherty, stick to the facts.
Most sincerely yours,

This Tallahassee must be a wonder-

Wickham's column that life on the. cam-
pus-of-cuties is just one jolly routine of
fraternity pin after fraternity pin. The
Pikes and the ATO's and the Betas and
the Alpha Choleras are all clamoring
around the sorority house serenading the
gals, and the gals, not to be outdone,
serenade the boys, and life is a lark. I

two-thirds of us are non-fraternity men.

can't work them into our schedules, but
you know that the real reason is that the

What I'd like to know is, are
there any non sorority girls at

should be xreat! All of us people
who couldn't rate a fraternity or
sorority bid serenading each other
beneath the pines!
Of course, all the good non-frat boys
who read Tally-Grains think that they're
social outcasts without the little badges
of distinction on their shirts. I've tried to
tell them that the column isn't entirely

Florida's Fighting Gator five is now in the fair city
of jLouisville, Kentucky, taking part in the annual South-
eastern Conference basketball tournament. They drew
in the hardest bracket, as usual, playing the winner of
the Kentucky-Auburn game tonight. The Kentucky boys
are favored to take the tournament, so there is little doubt
they will have much trouble with the Gators.
There have been times this season when the
Orange and Blue boys could have given the tourney
favorites a battle, but I am afraid they .are not up to
it now. Although Ralph Licker, Pete Hartsaw, and
Bill Atkinson are fair basketball players, Kentucky
has a very well-balanced ball club. All we can say is
best of luck and we are pulling for you, boys!

If and when the All-Southeastern team is picked
there is little chance that any of the Florida boys will
make the first five. There is a possibility of Pete Hart-
