Dr. Howart R. Smith, one of
the foremost American pioneers in
animal husbandry education, spoke
to a gathering of 65 members and
guests of the Agriculture Club in
College Park recently, featured by
an open-air steak fry.
Dr. Smith. introduced to the
club by Prof. C. H. Willoughby,
professor of animal husbandry,
spoke briefly on Florida's role in
livestock production.
"Florida's biggest disadvantage
is the lack of forage crops," Dr.
Smith said. He pointed out that
some day Florida will be produc-
ducing more feed and eventually
there will be a great development
in meat production in this state.
At present the Southeast produces
only one-half of the meat it con-
Speaking of our University
lie praised the beautiful build-
ings and campus but hlie went 'on
to say that one important as-
pect of college life is lacking: co-
education. lie has been to many
large colleges and universities
and feels that the influence of
coeducation is a very necessary
part of college life. "The girls
should be here at the Univer-
sity," he said.
Dr. Smith was graduated from
Michigan State college and has
taught at Missouri, Nebraska and
Minnesota universities. He is a
Pioneer in animal husbandry edu-
caton in the United States. Since
1917 Dr. Smith has .been engaged
in loss prevention work and he is
now head of the natoinal livestock
loss prevention board.

Florida Blue Key was founded

of Education, has been appointed
professor cf school administration
at the University of Florida..
One of the outstanding men in
the field of school administration
in the country, Dr. Johns will aid
in graduate work in the College of
Education. He will also also be
available as a consultant for pub-
lic schools in the state-as are all

The committee reported that ir
regard to finances the monthly
net result is no profit. During the
period September through Decem-
ber of last year the cafeteria lost
about 200 dollars a month. The
surplus fund, accumulated while
Army units were o-n the campus
now stands at about 4.0,000 dol-

by the surplus fund, and, if no
appropriations are forthcoming
from the state, this fund will fi-

Mliost of the food purchased by
the cafeteria is obtained from
wholesalers in Jacksonville. This
includes primarily meats and
similar items; most vegetables
are purchased locally. In con-
servation of food, the committee
found that vegetables left-over
from dinner are served for sup-
'per and the extras froni this
meal are thrown away.
The same baker has worked in
the cafeteria for the past 20 years
and the cafeteria says that if
there has been any decrease in the
quality of pastries it is because
of the sugar shortage.

A restricted enrollment policy
for women in the University of

Robert Frost Is

Guest Speaker

At University
Speaking to a large audience
in the University of Florida aud-
itorium last night, Robert Frost,
noted American poet, explained
the "constant symbol" in poetry
and read selections of his works.
Frost told an audience of stw-.
dents, faculty, and townspeople
that when one begins a poem he
begins his constant symbol in
the first line. Length of line,
meter, and rhyme all become con-
stant in a single poem but are
set by the author within the
first few lines. They become a
"deepening commitment" and the
poet must conform to that form
he has set. Likening this to
life, Frost said it is the same in
marriage and war when an in-
dividual must follow his commit-
ment for success.
Speaking of metaphor, Frost
called it the garnish of poetry,
"the way cloves are stuck into
a ham." Metaphor is not the
core, for the thought or topic
is the "ham."
One of America's greatest poets,
Frost has won the Pulitzer Prize
for poetry four times. His poems
are read in schools and homes
throughout the nation. He was
brought to the University by the
College of Arts and Sciences
Lecture Program series.

nent alumni.
So now you ask, "What does a
guy have to do to get a bid to
Florida Blue Key? Just be a
BMOC?" The answer is, "Yes, as
a minimum requirement."
To be eligible for membership
you have to meet certain "pa-
per" qualifications by partici-
pating in at least three fields of
extra-curricular activities and
distinguishing yourself in one.
Some of these fields are student
government, politics, publica-
tions, service anil organizations.
After you meet this require-
ment, members vote on you con-
sidering all factors, such as hon-
esty, integrity, and honor.
New members are pledged into
Florida Blue Key in November
and April. At present there are
18 active members. All other
members are inactive; these in-
clude both honorary and alumni

during the war, and although it
was not officially reactivated until
this semester, a group of 13 men
was pledged in the fall
Frank Duckworth 'and Johnny
Joca, former members who re-
turned last fall, served as chair-
man and secretary, respectively,
of this group. The ten pledges
still in school were initiated
Mar. 5, and officers were elect-
ed. They are Nixon Butt, presi-
dent; Harry Parham, vice presi-
dent; Herman Lee, treasurer;
and Ralph Blank, secretary.
Plans are now being made for
consideration of applications for
membership made during the dor-
mant war period by students not
now in school. Many students
made great contributions to the
University during the critical per-
iod and will not be overlooked by
Florida Blue Key.

Editorially "Speaking

The Alligator receives from time to time pamphlets,
letters, booklets, etc., urging the printing of material con-
cerning the American Manufacturers Association, the CIO
and AFL, organizations to handle the atomic bomb, can-
didates for political offices, and charitable organizations
--to name a few.
But this week we received the prize. An organiza-
tion calling itself the Inter-Collegiate Committee to Com-
bat Bilbo, sends a letter urging college students to
organize to fight Bilbo and his kind.
This is an idea which we heartily approve-for Bilbo,
called by Raymond Gram Swing "a fore-runner of Amer-
ican Fascism," is a drag on the progress and enlighten-
ment not only of the. South but of the United States with
his i Jo'-trije of racial hatred.

It seems that every now and then there arises criti-
cism of some sort concerning the functioning of the Intra-
mural department. Last week we' had the opportunity of
listening to a speech delivered by"a student attempting to
point out certain shortcomings of this department.
Realizing that we who are responsible, in the opera-
tion of this phase of activities are not infallible, we there-
fore welcome any suggestions that will promote a greater
efficiencyy in the operations by the board.
Returning to the previously mentioned speech there
were two points raised that are worthy of analysis. Ac-
cording to the speaker, the Intra-mural program is oper-
ating on too small a scale of activity, and also. there, is not
the percentage of participation as there might be.
Studying these noi-ts individually, we will attempt
to answer these supposed deficiencies. Taking first the
matter regarding the size of the. sports program, it should
be noted that the range of activity is designed in correla-
tion to the enrollment. During the war-years the, activity
was practically nil.
With the return to normalcy, the department has
been reactivated and is well on the way to its former

What Others Say

In last week's 'Gator, several individuals rath-
er enthusiastically went to -bat for the current
proposal that all Student Body publication offi-
cers be appointed. At present, all such officers
are elected in the regular Student Body elections,
with the exception of the Editor-In-Chief, the Man-
aging Editor, and the Business Manager of The
Alligator. These officers are appointed by a spe-
cial committee consisting of the Board of Student
Publications, the President of The Student Body,
and the Chancellor of the Honor Court.
The new proposal would make all publica-
tions positions appointive by this same board.
I thbik the whole thing is a very delightful
idea, and one of thi brightest of the current
It appears that there are two important con-
siderations. First, the editorial reins of all stu-
dent body publications must remain in the hands
of the Student Body. Second, the publications
shall be top-notch stuff. This of course implies
that individuals of. bome ability be chosen to run
the things.
I imagine that most criticism of the proposal
will be based on the assumption that removal of
these offices from the ballot will effectively re-
duce the extent of Student Body control over the
publications. I doubt very much that this would
be the case.
The committee which would do the ap-
pointl:ng would consist of a majority .of stu-
dents. More important, however, is the fact,
that the Student Senate always has the pow-
er to remove these appointed officers, should
they be guilty of dirty work at, the cros's-
I think that this appointive system, as evi-
denced by its application to the 'Gator, would work
out very well on this score. The Student Body
still retains control of the 'Gator, which, 'after all,
is the most important voice of student opinion.
Intrepid columnists still go forth in shining blue
serge suits, and the forces of iniquity are just as
terrified as ever.
The real merit of this proposal lies in the fact
that men of greater ability would head our pub-
lications. Under the proposed system, ability
would be the sole criterion. Under the present
set-up, several other factors enter the picture.
An aspirant to a publications position must.
ho politically acceptable. That calls for the
proper ties, and several abilities which are in
no way connected with journalism prowess.
Strangely enough, it is often possible for men
of journalistic ability to 'get lost in the politi-
cal shuffle.
I do not advocate that candidates be drawn
solely from the School of Journalism, for this
would make our publications reflective of the
School and force it to exercise certain controls.
If this proposed change is to be accomplished,
it can only be done by amendment to, the Consti-
tution. For this reason, I believe the Student
Body should become thoroughly acquainted will-
the matter. The thing is, I be-lieve, rather im-

To The Editor:
The issue of the Florida Alligator of February
8 contained an editorial on school spirit and it.;
cause. The spirit spoken of is not the liquid or
preternatural type; it is the spirit of state of mind
which the students should possess.
Students develop this state of mind during their
grammar and high school days and as they grow
so grow's their school spirit until their graduation.
Upon graduation this spirit is left behind for the
younger students to develop and carry on in their
own manner.
The value of school spirit after graduation
is reflected in our every day way of living both
economically and politically. Such as: the sup-
port of legislative principals and political par-
ty principals. Thus our school spirit of the
younger days takes on newer and broader
meaning. This spirit once expressed in cheers
and yells and an institutionalisticI frame of
mind has now charged to a spirit of individ-
ualistic conservatism and self-preservation.
Observation of the years gone by has shown us
that students entering college immediately after
graduation from high school possess and retain

more school spirit than is shown at the University
of Florida.
Asks the editorial write, "Why is there a lack
of spirit?" This question is likely to cause con-
siderable discussion among all concerned. One
plausible answer to this question is the predomi-
nantly heavy percentage (if veterans in our stu-
dent body. The ideas, habits, and jargon of the
group differ from those of recent high high'school
graduates. Perhaps some of our veterans are
younger than, or are in the same age bracket as
the high school graduates. No matter to what
age 1tracket they are comparable we will find,
with investigation, that these men are older phy-
sically and mentally than high school graduates.
The veterans now enrolled have seen, done,
and heard things which have tended to mature
them more hastily in both mind and body. We
now have a group of men to whom a fulfillment
of the realization of a good education is providing
them With the sticktoitiveness to apply themselves
for their own and their country's betterment.
Fun and frolic, once a part of a college stu-
dent's diet, has ibn put aside for more se-
rious and deliberate and applied thought. It
is the not antagonism towards the school, or
lahuk of unity amonmgl the students, that has
caused the downfall of school spirit; rather, it
is the fact that we now have men enrolled
here who have placed business before pleasure
and will see th'.i matter through to the finish
as they did in Europe and the Pacific.
School spirit has gone through its own period
of reconversion and it is now applied toward the
readjuistiment and rehabilitation of our war weary
and battle :i( ai're(d generation.

In regard to the question of who shall edit
and manage the student publications let's
look before we leap.

I do not hesitate to say that there is due
cause for mature deliberation before an affirma-
tive vote is cast.
For many years the students of the University
of Florida have proved themselves capable of se-
lecting editors and business managers for their
publications men who have discharged their du-
ties to the satisfaction of most students. Now it
.is suggested that the students, whose age and
intelligence do not preclude them from exercising
their voice in questions of national and inter-
national importance, can not be trusted to select
the men that they want to publish their" OWN
publications. There seems to be an inconsistency
1 do not suggest that the motives of the pro-
ponents of this measure are not of the highest
nature. I only suggest that there are two sides
to this question. Let's think it over and present
both views in the Alligator.

What is this latest burst from the pen of the
great Doherty? I read last week that he had in-
formation to the effect that "a group of non-frat
men pulled out of the Dixie Party to join the
Gator Party."
Checking on this report, I found that the
"group of non-frat men" is none other than an
individual non-frat man who previously had run
on the Gator ticket and who could have only left
his Dixie friends because he didn't get as much
as he wanted in the way of a nomination.
Perhaps Doherty would care to qualify his
statements a little more carefully hereafter.

Mann To Man.

My good friend Al LaGator, who
is considered to be a typical Flor-
ida man, was telling me about an
exclusive society he was asked to
join recently.
This was nothing like the
Brothers of the Boston Tea
Party, the Daughters of Cumza
Revolution, the Intelligent and
Alcoholic Order of Dodos, the
Heirs to Confederate Foxholes
or any other of the various and
sundry groups which purport to
contain the best of the American
people. This one based its se-
lection, of the superior speci-
mens of American humanity
upon scientific principles.
Thus, without even the aid of
the familiar device known as the
blackball, were banded together in
everlasting friendship and loyalty
the most exclusive group of the
upper crust ever pledged to the
These esteemed people who
sought to acquire Mr. LaGator are
known as the SOB's, which is short
for 'the -Supreme Omniscient
Brotherhood of Boneheads Bitten
on the Butt by, Blue-beaked Bull-

Dear Son-

Al was bitten last week and was
shortly thereafter contacted by
Gilwinkle Crudbudget. PhD, Grand
Exalted Ruler of the SOB's who
explained the basis of selection of
members of the brotherhood. Dr.
Crudbudget was once it seems,
bitten in the rearmost portion of
the anatomy by a blue-beaked
bullfinch and later fonmed the
SOB's among people who had un-
dergone the same experience.
Curiously enough, it was only
alter Dr. Crudbudget was bitten
that it appeared that only the best
people are bitten on the seat by
blue-beaked bullfinchs. Crodbud-
get claims to have infallible proof
of the bird's affinity for pure
blood, which after all is what
makes the difference ,between peo-
ple and nobodies. Being nipped in
the rear by a. blue-beaked bull-
finch is conclusive evidence that
either your ancestors were roy-
ally came over on the Mayflower,

dence, your great-grandfather was
Senator from Mississippi or that
those who carried your name be-
fore you otherwise distinguished
themselves says Crudbudget.

I guess it pays,

Al was pretty happy to learn
that he was such hot stuff. The
SOB's were pleased to recognize a.
fellow Puritan. The society's
lodge in Manhattan wns reported-
ly a sumptuous affair, with an
elaborate parlor known as the
Mayflower Room because so many
women came across in it. Al
breathlessly awaited the investigra-
Lion of his character which was a
necessary prerequisite.
Well sir, those SOB's had to
retract their offer to accept my
friend LaGator. The only thing
that got him bit in the first
place. says Crudbudget, is that
the bullfinch was misled by the
fact that Al's grandfather was
president of the Butlers' Union
at Harvard in 1898 and that Al
'didn't have any claim to distine-
tion at all.
Crudbudget murdered that d n
bulfinch, and I understand, set
about to find the true criterion
of personal quality i"-;uding him-
self in, naturally. Al TIaGator has
rejoined the can of unipretentiious
people and confided in me to the
ffet that Crudbudgt's story is just
a crock of bulfinch.

"The Spiral Staircase"
Based on Ethel Lina White's
novel, "Some Must Watch," RKO's
"The Spiral Staircase" deals with
the experiences of a young wom-
an threatened by a killer who
has terrorized a small Vermont
village. The killer specializes in
murdering ycung women and the
girl seems marked as a victim.
Dorothy McGuire plays Helen,
a housemaid companion in an old
mansion dominated by crochety
Mrs. Warren, portrayed by Ethel
Barrymore. Two sons, George
Brent and Gordon Oliver, also' live
there as well as a cook, a handy
man, a nurse and a secretary.
Helen's only real friend is Dr.
Parry (Kent Smith ,, a physician
in love with 'her.
tOutstanding Actresses
"The Spiral Staircase" has a su-
perb cast. Though as yet having
appeared in only four films, Dor-
othy McGuire has become one of
the foremost ycung dramatic
screen actresses. Her first three
appearances were 'in "Claudia,"
"The Enchanted Cottage," and "A
Tree Grows In Brooklyn." Greatly
distinguishing the cast is Ethel
Barrymore, First Lady of the
Theater, whose only two movie
performances were in "Rasputin
and the Empress" (with brothers
John and Lionel in the early 30's)
and "None But the Lonely Heart"
for which she received last year's
Academy Award as best support-
ing actress.
Talented acting is rendered by
character actresses Elsa, Lan-
chester as the inebriate cook and
Sara Allgood as a nurse. Includ-
ed in the film are Rhys Williams,
James Bell, and Rhonda, Fleming,
the latter having first appeared in
"Spellbound." "The Staircase" will
be screened Sunday and Mon-

"Allotment Wives," p 1 a ying
Tuesday and Wednesday, -is a
Monogram picture, the second film
produced by Kay Francis & Jeffry
Bernhard. It exposes the racket of
women who marry more than one
service man and therefore collect
more than one allotment check.
Kay Francis, star as well as pro-
ducer, is the leader of a syndicate
of such women. Paul Kelly and

Otto Kruger have the male leads.
Girls in Technicolor
"The Harvey Girls" takes its
story from some of the early day
experiences of the chain of Har-
vey restaurants that pioneered
the West at the side of the Santa
Fe Railroad. It was filmed in
technicolor by Metro Goldwyn-
Mayer with New Mexico of the
1890's as a background and will
show at the Fl.rida n-ext.Thurs-,
day, Friday and Saturda%.
Opposed to the law and order
which one of these eating houses
brings to Sandrock, New Mexico,
are Trent (John Hodiak) and Pur-
vis (Preston Foster) who use the
forces of their dance hall and
gambling house, the Alhambra, to
remove the Harvey Girls. The bat-
tle resolves itself into a personal
feud between Susan (Judy Gar-
land) and Em (Angela Lansbury),
queen of the Alhambra, over the
love of Trent.
A widely-varied musical score
was delivered by Johnny Mercer
and Harry Warren, including "On
the Atchison, Topeka and the
Santa Fe." Aiding Miss Garland
in her songs and dances are Ray
Bolger, Virginia O'Brien and Cyd
Charisse. Added to the cast are
Kenny Baker, Marjorie Main, and
Chill Wills. Newcomer Angela
Lansbury has been twice nomi-
nated for supporting actresses

as the Cockney maid in "Gas-

Spring Practice
Gator spring drills under the watchful eye of "Bear" Wolf have
been in progress almost a week, and, from the looks of things, the
team is getting along well. They have been working very much with
fundamentals and spent very little time with conditioning. Wolf is
working hard to get his double wing into working condition before
he can get the boys down to hard work. Most of the Gators have
not played under both the double and single wings and are having
trouble getting used to both.

Coaching Situation
With the announcement that Coaches Genovar, MacAllister and
Procter would be held by Wolf to work with him brought little atten-
tion from the students as it was felt they would be retained. There
are still two or' three jobs open in the new athletic setup and they
are expected to be filled soon.

Tennis Prospects
There is some possibility that a tennis team might be formed
here soon, so here is a tip to. all of you tennis hopefuls. Get out your
racquet and start hitting the hall, and when the time comes you will
be ready to go out for the team. The athletic department seems very
determined to get this school back on the athletic map. That means
a tennis team. Maybe not the best this year, but look to the future.

Basketball Finals

This writer said before the basketball tournament in Louisville
that Pete Hartsaw would have a good chance to make the All-
Southeastern Conference second team and I proved to be wrong. I
did nct realize that the Kentucky Wildcats were all that strong. They
placed four of their first five on the first team and the fifth on the
second team. They are seeded first in the National Tourney in New
York and we will string along with them to take it.

Cruising With Covey

By David Y. Coverston
, While wandering around the.
i:n.l,', the other day enjoying ta'
'seige of spring fever I stumbled
on a part of the University that
I nevr knew existed, and in case
some of you are in the same boat
I was in, here's what I found.
Located in the Southeast wing
of the P. K. Yonge laboratory
school on Ninth Street is the de-
partment of industrial arts, a go-
ing branch of the college of edu-
cation, and one of the most inter-
esting places you can ever hope
to visit.
Headed by a genial young fel-
low who looks more like a stu-
dent than a professor, Professor
Thomas W. Strickland, a Flor-
ida graduate, the department is
suffering from the same disease
that eating at the heart of the
rest of the school, lack of eqnuip-
ment, but nevertheless is dong
a job that will take a back seat
to none on the campus.
The day I happened to wander
into- the shop I saw a number or
young fellows sawing, planing, and
hammering away at blocks or
wood while others were cutting,
shaping, soldering and commit-
ting other atrocities on sheets of

pitches hands down. At this point the Phi Delt team recovered their
previous form and tock the next two games as easily as the SPE's

but both teams elected to continue and the SPE's took the final game

In 1944 and '45, the British
were fighting a winning battle
against the Germans' V-i robot

the robots were being shot down
by the anti-aircraft gunners. The

they failed was due in large
measure to the effectiveness of
,proximity fused A-A shells.
In Ejurope artillerymen found
that with a new fuse, their killing
power was greatly increased. The
reason for this was that the shell
exploded at exactly the right
height above the ground for maxi-
mum effectiveness, and did not
waste all its explosive power
blowing craters in the ground.
The Army estimates conservative-
ly that a gun firing proximity fus-
ed shells is equivalent to four guns
firing conventionally fused shells.
This last example, like the oth-
ers, indicates what a deadly weap-
on this fuse is.
The V-T (variable-time) radio
proximity fuse in principle is a
very small radio sending and re-
ceiving set which explodes a shell
when its signals are reflected
fro man object. It can be adjust-
ed at the factory to explode a shell
at any given distance from the
target. A part in the development
of the fuse was given to the Uni-
versity of Florida.

the National Defense Research
Council asked the University to
undertake the development and

last was necessary because on
the Navy fuse, used mostly on
A-A shells, the radio signal was
sent out at right angles to the
line of flight of the projectile and
consequently would blow up if
fired near a group of trees, or any
other obstruction.
All these difficult problems
were finally solved, and a fuse
was developed which was inter-
changeable with contact fuses,
had a wind-driven generator for
a power plant and was so made
that it would not explode the
shell prematurely, so that the
dread of the artilleryman "ear-
lies" was eliminated.
The fuse as developed here was
a little larger than a teacup, and
had a complete radio sending and
receiving set ,an antenna system
and a power plant, plus several
safety devices. The radio tubes
were about half the- thickness of
a lead pencil, and about two
inches long, and were able to
withstand a firing shock equiva-
lent to a drop from a 20 story
building. Anyone can realize the
enormous problems presented by
this undertaking; they were all
solved here at Florida.
This should prove that Florida
is among the top technical schools
in the South, because it was se-
lected by a national research body
to do such important work, and
work which necessarily required

Florida's Fighting Gator baseball nine played its first
game of the season as they met defeat at the hands of At-

The Floridians played good ball until the seventh

times to run up a total score of 16-6. Chief cause of the loss
was the failure of the in-I

Platter Chatter
By Bert Oshins
Hottest disc news. on the wires is that Duke Ellington will follow
Artie Shaw to Musicraft Records when his contract expires with Vic-
(ori this coming November. The contract has not been signed yet, so
there is a possibility that it may fall though. If the "Duke" does sign
this will put Musicraft in a position to really give the Big Four (Co-
lumbia, Decca, Victor, and Capitol) competition for the postwar rec-
ord marts.
The Musicraft roster now includes Artie Shaw, Georgia Auld, Lee
Castle, The Phil Moore Four, Mel Torme and the Mel Tones (who just
quit Decca), Hairy the Hipster, Francis Wayne. Joe Marsala, Pa.ul
Lavalle, Phil Brito, Dean Hfidson, and Jose Bethancourt. You can see
that Musicraft is really getting set to vie for the record table.
Sonny Dunham, who will be here for Spring Frolics, has signed a
contract with Vouge Recordings. Vouge will put a new twist into
their records by : 1I. i, ., r,i -_ them. That's right, the records will be,
illustrated in color. Other Vouge stars are Clyde McCoy, Shep Fields,
Art Mooney, and Frankie Masters. Benny Goodman will be in Jack-
sonville for a one night stand soon. He will be minus his band. Abe
Livert's orchestra, one of the better home town crews, will back Ben-
ny for his numbers. We hope it's not as crowded'as it was when Sam-
my Kaye was in Jax recently.
Freddie Martin who is known strictly as a sweet hand will surprise
you on his new record Bumble Boogie. Dinah Shore has already re-
leased her first record for Columbia, a little over a month after she
parted with Victor. Betty Hutton left Capitol for Victor, but we
doubt if she'll be able to take over in Miss Shore's spot. Benny Car-
ter has also left Capitol for parts unknown.
Good news for Gainesville record buyers. One of the downtown
ten cent stores is now handling A.R.A. (American Recording Art-
ists) records. A.R.A. has some fine talent under contract includ-
ing Bob Crosby, Phil Harris, Frances Langford, Ginny Simms,
Hoagy Carmichael, The Town Criers, Porky Freeman, Skinny
Ennis, Winigy Manone, Joe Richmlan, Stuart Hamblen, Art Tatum,
and Bob Johnston.
Dark Town Poker Club. Jelly Bean; Phil Harris; A.R.A.
"Dark Town Poker Club" is the feature side of this record, and is
Phil Harris all the way. The backing by' the band is only incidental.
If you like Phil Harris you'll surely enjoy this record. "Jelly Bean,"
the reverse side, has Mr. Harria trying hard to please with very pool'
material. The band also shows up very poorly on this side.
J. D.'s Boogie Woogie, Lover; Jininny Dorsey; Decea
Decca offers one of the few top bands they have left, Jimmy Dor-
sey, in this pairing of two instrumentals. Although neither offers
anything exceptional in the way of passages or solos, meost swing
fans will find this coupling very enjoyable. We imagine most copies
of this record will be sold on the strength of "J. D.'s Boogie," but
"Lover" is by far the letter side.
Do You Love Me, Moon Mist; ,Jolmny Desmond; Victor
Johnny Desmond, "The G.I.'s Sinatra," scores nicely with "Do You
Love Me" and "The Moon Mist." Both are romantic ballads, although
"Do You Love Me" is in a lighter vein. Desmond has a very pleasing
voice, and, with all the publicity he is getting, should be up near the
top very soon.

is this regulation really fair? Per-

One can readily see the reasons
for enacting such a rule. It pro-
tects the college as w611 as the
veteran from the reputation of
teing, and having men in school
who are here, either for a good
time, or for the money involved.
Perhaps the regulation is a good
one, but, again, is it fair to the
students ?
Some veterans who enter the
college are handicapped at the be-
ginning. To push them in such
a way only increases their chance
of failing.
It would be an excellent idea
if the Veterans Administ'ration
would print and distribute regu-
lations so that veteran students
would know just what is expected
of them upon entering, college.
