by a lack of sufficient exit

For awhile, it looked as if
admission was going to be,

due to the fact that there ..
were not enough exits to ac-
commodate more than that

Through the untiring efforts of
the Interfraternity Council and.
the Student Senate, additional ex-

We, a group of scientists and engineers at the atomic bomb plant
at Oak Ridge; are soliciting your help on the most important problem
the world faces today. This is the control of atomic energy. The
unanimous opinion of our group is as follows:
a. There is no secret of the atomic bomb. Every country is in pos-
session of the basic scientific information, and, if. any country had pos-
session of all of the details of our plants and processes, the time would
not be greatly reduced until it could produce atomic boms.
b. There is no military defense. If atomic war occurs, large cities
may be wiped out at the outbreak of the war. It might :.e possible
that a nation would be devastated without knowing the identity of its
c. Atomic energy should be under international control. If the Unit-
ed Nations Organization is given the task, it should be strengthened
and allowed to operate an international inspection system to prevent
The last point -.-i.: 11 should receive immediate attention, be-
cause, if it is not treated with intelligent action, each delay brings
nearer an atomic armament race, which would probably have a very
We feel that it is of the utmost importance that all of the aspects
of this issue be brought to the public eye by means of puVllications,
forums, and individual and group action, so that our government may.
be guided in these crucial times.
Your college paper is a strong influence on campus affairs and
thoughts. Your public is a select group which can play an important
part in shaping our nation's policies.
We suggest that your paper could act by publishing editorials, en-
couraging forums and debates, conducting polls of student opinion, ar-
ranging for competent speakers to address the student body, etc. We
will be happy to provide you with our- weekly News Letter, which con-
tains information of international and national activities as well as
those of our group. If you desire, we will furnish material for your
editorial or "letters to the editor" column.
We are a member organization of the Federation of American Sci-
entists, a nationwide group having the same views, from whom you
can obtain additional information and help. Their address is 1621 K
St., NW, Washington, D. C.
It is our hope that there are already groups active on your campus
promoting discussion and thought on the atomic energy problem. It
is our desire to contact these groups and aid them in any way possible.
To assist us in this, we would appreciate it if you will fill out and re-
turn the enclosed questionnaire.

efforts are important.

Dear Indignant Student:
Two weeks ago we had a write-
up on the Sophomore Hop at Tal-
ly,in which we advised Florida
men to "see Florida feminine
first." Due to the feminine pul-
chritude displayed there, we did
not take into consideration the
-fact that a Florida man might not
be acquainted with the campus
beauties. After lengthy thought,
we heartily agree with the writer.
fn atonement we have a plait
whereby you may meet a real
The first step in our plan is to
stand up on the dining hall steps
and energetically wave your arms
to attract a large crowd. When
the crowd is assembled, you non-
challantly do a, "chandele" turn
from a standstill. Following this
immediately should he a. "snap-
'"ol'" down the steps.
When you wake up if you see
a beautiful girl leaning over you,
look forward to a wonderful eve-
ning, but if you see a fellow in'a
long white rote and if you see a
set of pearly gates, just take the
harp that he hands you, for, Bro-
Lher, you've had it.

newspaper or magazine for thm public,
Prior to the special Alligator amendment
which removed that publication from 'politics,
there ere many. qualified men on the staff who,
although having a superior knowledge of the
litical race, because of fa;iiie in the gentle art
of ai.,i..-ta.Ltngp. apple-polishing, and the like.
Should the Senate adopt the recommendations
put before it, the editors and business managers
of tlle .-iirinoie, Orange Peel, and "F" Book would
be selected upon their qualifications by an edit-
orial selection board consisting of the' board of
student publications, the president of the student
body and the chancellor of the honor court. This
board is the same one which has been selecting
the Alligator editor, managing editor and business
managers. During the war years, however, it has
been necessary for the board to drop some of the
requirements and qualifications in order to find
enough men to run the various publications.
There ts a further step which has not been
approached as yet, but which from the point
really good student journalism, should be includ-
ed in the qualifications for editors and business
managers of the various publications. That step
would provide for their taking by editors and
business managers of courses parallel to the
jobs for which they are applying.
For instance, prior to application, applicants
for editor and managing editor of the Alligator
shall have taken the News Writing and Editing,
course, applicants for editor of the Seminole and
Orangt Peel shall be required to take a course in
Magazine Article Writing and Editing, and all
business manager applicant could be required to
take a course in advertising.
Some groups interested in the campus publica-
tion set-up go so far as to advocate the placing of
the Alligator completely under the jurisdiction of
the Journalism department. There are argument
both pro and con on this suggestion. Some are
against it on the grounds that it will discourage
student as i' iii.-. since the publication of the Alli-
'gator would be limited to Journalism students
only. On the other hand, it seems logical to as-
sume a much more professional air if composed
Both this suggestion and' the "Course-qualifi-
cation" idea previously mentioned would be im-
practical if not impossible to put into effect this
year, since so few men would now be qualified.
but should provide good food for thought when
the new executive council meets next year.
At any rate, the proposed amendment for
taking all publications out of politics is a eom,
mendable one which is worthy of every Florida
man's consideration and vote If and when suck
an amendment is placed before the student body.
Editorials nd Opinion
By Jack Doherty
It is not our policy to use this column
for the purpose of answering criticisms,
and we frankly hesitate to establish such
a precedent. However, we feel that there
are certain points in Mr. Jack Hayward's
indictment of this writer which are un-
just if not downright false.
Mr. Hayward commented on our
stand regarding the "proper repre-
sentation of non-fraternity men in
student body government." Close ex.- ,
.aminatibn of our writings will prove
that we have taken no such stand.
We have consistently stood for
"proper representation" for ALL
groups on the campus.
In the coming election, the unpre-
dictable element is much grit-a-r than
it has been in the last three or four years.
Each party has its organized block of
Iratertity and (, iii.'.;i.i'al votes. Let
no one be mishld on that point.
However, this block at the present
time accounts for only i .11.11. one-third
to one-half of the total vote. Thus it
should be apparent that the election.call
be decided by the non-frat men. Fhl pa r-
ty which sways the majority -of them
will carry the election. Considering these
points, Mr. Ilayward's letter amou-nts to

litical battle for control of the unorgan-
We will concede to Mr. Hayward that
the nomination system has been demo-
cratized. We would further like to point
out something Mr. Hayward neglected to
bring up. That is the fact that recently
the largest fraternity on the campus left
the Gator Party to join him. About the
same time, a group of 1.1ri-fli men pull-
ed out of the Dixie Party to join the
(ator Party. Such things don't "just hap-
To the independent voter, who now
should be reaching a point of utter con-
fusion, our personal advice is not to vote

Last week, gentelmen, we read about the
darling little cigarette lighters our FSCW friends
got from our fratfrolickers at several celebra-
tions of Vanlentine Day. Hmmm! Tally-grams
ought to be interesting next week if we're told
what the gals get out of this week-end!
All kidding aside, it looks like one of the
greatest affairs in years. You've got to
hand it to the Inter-Fraternity Conference.
With the aid of the student senate and a few
Language Hall dignitaries they overcame a
handicap imposed by the operation of fire
insurance underwriting codes.% thus making
the attendance of all those interested in a bit
of polite joking possible. Then men who
got enough tickets on the market, viz, NeS-

non-fraternity men from an awful letdown,

and about the way he stymied the affair in
the first instance. If pou're willing to trade
your rumors in on a good set of facts, drop down
to lhe Alligator office and epy them out of my
little black notebook. The truth of the matter
is that the fire hazard was great and Baugh-
mnan's recommendation was that excessive crowds
not be permitted and that paper decorations not
be used. There were the Coconut Grove and
the Ringling Brothiers fires, not to mention the
one Mrs. O'Leary's cow started. The case
Mr. Baughman presented was incontestable. His
intentions were good and he had the students'
interest at heart. It's all according to the way
you look at it.

PURUIT r z E'
By Ted Nelson
There was so much confusion about
Frolics this past week that it was diffi-
cult at times to make heads or tails of all
the reports that were coming in. Most
problems have been resolved now, but
the week shouldn't pass into history with-
out mention of the fine work done by
several members of the Inter-fraternity
From our personal knowledge
and contact with the affair center-
ing around attempts to limit the
number of dance tickets sold, for
reasons of public safety, it appeared
that no finer an effort to get tickets
and space for everyone who wanted
to go could have been made than
was made by W. C. ,Nesbitt, Ted
Camp, Bill Byrd, and their asso-
Nesbitt, as president of the IFC, and
Camp, handling ticket sales, were among
the i. ndeis of the group that contracted
Sonny Dunham's musicians to entertain
at the Frolics. In normal times there
might have been a General College
Weekend, an IFC Weekend, a Military
Ball, and probably other big social af-
fairs that would allow every student to
participate at some time during the se-
With the number of married couples
on the campus and the hordes of alumni
wanting tickets, however, this first and
prissihly last big week-end of -the term
had demands placed upon it that could
scarcely be answered. Why the delay in
informing the IFC of setting limitations
on sales until March 4 is made clear to-
day. The fact remained that there were
very good grounds to stand on in setting
When Nesbitt received word of
the request for limitation, he set
about effecting an immediate in-
crease within any reasonable bounds
that could be discovered. How W. C.
and Ted and the others did their job,
how the IFC men and a Student Sen-
ate resolution called at an emergen-
cy meeting brought about a raise to
1,600 tickets, is a matter for the first
page. But the first page may not
credit them with the classes missed,
with the good humor maintained
through it all, with the risks of in-
curring misunderstanding with one
element or another, that these men
underwent in their spirit of fairness.
When a long line formed outside the
Florida Union Wednesday afternoon,
Nesbitt and Camp and Byrd were all
there on the job, and no one had to be
turned away. They were still smiling, still
politely answering questions, still plug-
ging away in the stretch.
That sort of spirit is what could really
bring about a greater Florida spirit.
There is no room for doubt in our minds
that these men are worthy of the high-
est praise for their efforts, and the high-
est respect for their ability.
What Others Say
It is my understanding that Florida
Blue Key will soon introduce a proposal
to the Senate which would remove all
campus publications from politics. This
would be effected by a special student
body election on the proposed amend-
menit to the constitution.
I am taking this opportunity to go
on record personally in favor of such ac-
tion, and as chairman, to put the Gator
Party on record as beipg heartily in ac-
cord with such an amendment.
Campus politics are all right in their
place, but their place is not in the selec-
tion of men for jobs which require tech-
nical skill. Often a man is qualified but
is a political liability and thus cannot be-
come the edtor or business manager of

nitely on the uptrend, now is the time
to place qualified men in responsible p1)o-
sitions on our campus publications. These

It is my sincere hope that the oppo-
sition party will also endorse the pro-
posed amendment to insure its passage
prior to the coming campus elections.

These are the times that try men's souls. Who can go around ask-
ing people questions when a crisis is at hand? I'm the one that should
te asking questions and everywhere I go people are asking me ques-
tions "Yuh gotta date for the frolics--huh?" "No!" "Yuh better
get on de ball, brother!" "Yuh know how many days there are left?"
-and so on and on and on.
Things were getting desperate, I tell ya, desperate. Even lhe
waitresses at the College tInn were beginning to look good to me.
It got so bad that I went around ripping all the pin-ip pictures
off my wall.
Then I rembered '-, Iin,'i- someone had told me about there re-
ing an old alligator (live-not the newspaper) in the pond behind the
Ag. Research Station. Sb purely on the chance that he might have
a good-looking but willing daughter I decidedI to look him up and find
out what he thought about the present world situation.
I followed rny nose to the swamp andi per instructions tossed rny
rootn-rnate into the water. Before you could say "Salt-Peter and the
WVolf" there was the old hag giving me a bony grin from an old de-
"Howdy, son," he says. "Come on in and set a spell." 'Pop, I
said, "I'm an inquiring reporter. I'd like to ask you a few questions."
"Hee, heee, he laughed. "An inquiring reporter. These new fan-
gled inventions. What won't they think of next."
I could see that this conversation was going to be a trifle one-sid-
ed. I said, "Tell me, Pop, what do you think of this business of hav-
ing wornen on the campus?
"Waaal, I've been here a long time-nigh onto 87 years now
and I've never seen so many young fellers down here contemplat-
ing this pond. There was a lad down here gone stark raving mad
because lie had overheard a husband and wife conversation at
Mrurphree. Ask me something easy, son."
"After all these years you must be pretty good at politics," I said.
"What do you think of having men like Rankin and Biito in Con-
The old 'gator jumped three feet into the air and went for my
leg. I retreated up the bank.
"Son," he said. "My opinion of them isn't fitten to print. I
think that they are a disgrace to the people and to their tonsti-
tuents. Something should be done about them. And if I had my
way" . le opened his jaws meaningly and I retreated a lit-
"Are there any other questions you'd like me to answer?" he
"Yeah-where can I get a (late for the Frolics?"
The old alligator grinned PepsoGently. "Why, that's as easy as
roiling off a log."
And he did.
Let's Have More Of The Same
We feel that the Lyceum Council is losing some first
rate opportunities to bring top grade musical entertain-
ment to the campus.
Last week, Josephine Antoine, leading colertura with
the Metropolitan Opera Company, passed through Gaines-
ville on the way to Georgia State Women's College for a
performance. Rumor has it that when queried as to why
.she wasn't singing, she replied that she hadn't been ask-

tl'e t ou programs presented by the Lyceum Council,
Frances Lehnerts, soprano, and Polgar, the mental wiz-
ard, were both well received-in a word, excellent enter-
tainment. Let's ha\e more of the same.
I FC-Baughman Cooperate .
At Nle beginning of the week the campus began to
seethe with anger and apprehension as the rumor spread
that Frolics tickets were being limited to ,(000. Non-
fraternity men walked around with a harried look fol'
fear nthat no tickets would be left by the time the day
for public sales was reached.
The reason for the limitation, and recommendation,
for such a limitation had been made was not a hurriedly
unconsidered bit of hairbrainedness. It resulted from the
fact that fire authorities feared for the safety of a crowd
that might exceed 2,000 persons, with as few\ exits Ia
exist in our old and somewhat outmoded gym.
Hlow the IFC leaders and the Student Senate, togeth-
er with the cooperation and efforts of variouIs calIpus and
administration leaders and Mr. Baughman, assistant busi-
ness manager of the University, plunged into action and
remedied this matter is a fine example of what can be
done through cooperation of the various campus elements.
The. fact that these men, with as little time as they had,
could effect a raise tat was compatible to all parties, an
increase from 1,000 to 1,600 tickets, is a matter for the
history of the University of Florida. It should be a topic
touched with pride, and the knowledge that there were a
group of Florida men who dropped almost all aspects of
their personal life to work day and night for their fellow

So much for that. You're all set for the
week-end, aren't you? Noboddy's feeling
are hurt beyond repair, the south exit to the
new gym is open, thus facilitating a little
Mardi Grass between dances, if your date

we'd hoped for!

Suberman Wins Again
In a hotly contested battle, Jack Suberman defeated
Hoffman of the S P E's to capture the handball singles
crown. The Pi Lam representative took the first three
matches in a best three out of five tilt to win the title..
Suberman entered the finals by defeating Stabell of the
Newman Club in the most interesting match of the tour-
Both entries showed excellent court work ,but shot
placement finally gave the lead to Suberman. This is the
second handball singles crown for Suberman, he having
won the title in 1940. He is also holder of the 1938-39 in-
dividual high point trophy. Officiating for the matches
was done by Ansbacher.
Handball Doubles Underway
The race for handball doubles got underway Mon-
day with the usual amount of spirited competition. Games
will be run off for the remainder of this week with the
finals falling on Friday, weather permitting.
This semester's basketball tournament is still sched-
uled to begin next Monday. The gym has already been
scheduled for the remainder of the week by competing
teams so the competition should prove to be rather heavy
this time. Last semester, the championship was annexed
by the Pikes after defeating a strong S A E entry in the
finals. This is a round robin tournament until the semi-
finals where double elimination rules go into effect.

A STATEMENT OF POLICY
The Gator Party will conduct its campaign in the coming campus elec-
tions on the basis of which men are individually qualified for office. It is
our intention to nominate the best qualified and most representative men.
It is NOT our intention to resort to mud-slinging tactics against our op-
position as a cover-up for unqualified candidates.
When our nominations are finally made, we challenge the opposition,
man for man, to put up men having a higher calibre of character and better
qualifications for office than the Gator Party candidates will have.

TILE STREET, Ann Petry; Hough-

This is the record of Lutie John-

the reasons why this story is told
and why it is so tragic. Mrs. Petry
has written a novel so real in its
emotions that the reader feels as
though he is seeing the plot un-

and in so doing is brought so close
to the people who inhabit The

the characters and their lusts
and desires go far to illustrate
why these streets are so danger-
Mrs. Hedges and her "girls";
Boots Smith, the bandleader, and
his desire for the soft Lutie John-
son; the white and powerful Mr.
Junto with the same desire; and
the superintendent of the tene-
ment, Jcnes, in whose lewd un-
balanced mind Lutie be-comes a
symbol of all he had ever wanted
-all these and other thought-
provoking characterizations of de-
cay, mentally and morally, are
portrayed with a sincerity born of
a desire to better existing- condi-
tions by presenting the whole
shamefully sordid and heartbreak-
ing truth to the attention of the
American people, in the hope that
someone will read, think and act.
I believe-that Mrs. Petry will
feel justified in her work if 'per-

fraternity men have borne the
brunt of the work. Many an in-
dependent has been seen in the
dead of night, staking off his
plot at the golf course.
Just as the pre-frolics goings
on are interesting to analyze, the
aftermath provides a field to look
over. Having gone with as little
sleep possible before and no sleep
at all during the frolics, Florida
men find themselves a bit fatigued
after their big affair. A rest pe-
riod is then in order. This period
of sleep solace, and strong study
shunning, usually lasts until the
beginning of May- or perhaps the
!ast day or two in April. During
this period the seemingly justi-
fied excuse for work stoppage is,
"Well, I've had a tough time
frclics and I've got to rest up a
while." For the beenfit of any-
one new here, it is understood that
professors take cognisance of this

a wonderful concert this past
week. There was a light program
in the afternoon and a more seri-

general belief in G'ville, I am told.
Speaking of concerts, from all

Have you noticed the changes
around the campus during the
past few weeks? If you weren't
here for the first semester you
probably haven't, but to those cf
us who were here there has been
a tremendous change, and it cer-
tainly has been for the better.
Many of us who returned last
fall after three to five years ab-
sence were a. bit surprised, even
though we shouldn't have been,
to find the old campus a ghost
school compared to the way it was
when we left. The campus itself
was still unchanged, still beautiful
and dignified, with the same build-
ings and perhaps the squirrels
were related to those we'd left be-
hind but the things that had made
it a place to be remembered were
not in evidence. Students were so
rare that when you saw one you
stopped and introduced yourself.
Classrooms were practically emp-
ty and little activity was in evi-
One place that had changed lit-
tle was Florida Field on game
nights. The vacant seats still
yawned at those hardy folks who
longed for the taste of victory,
and the first team was still tough,
but the usual lack of reserves usu-
ally told, and as ever the "Gators"
had to be satisfied with the small
end of the score. Cheer leaders
still knocked themselves out try-
ing to get up a bit of spirit, but,
as it has been for years, the re-
sults obtained wouldn't fill a small
sized burlap bag. (Let's see to it
that Coach Wolf and his '46 Sau-
rians don't suffer from a similar
apathy from the student body.)
Some improvements were in evi-
dence, at least two being very no-
ticeable. One was the growth of
grass over shortcuts of previous
years, and the other, and best
seen around here in many years,
was the vets' wives adding to the
