to the existing wartime emergency amendments and an-
other to the method of selecting publications officials
under the pre-war student body constitution.
In 1943 a special emergency amendment to the con-
stitutionl was passed setting up a new body of laws to have
effect during the entire du-
ration of the emergency and
for six months thereafter. W

Dr. William G. Carleton, profes-
sor of social sciences at the Uni-
versity, told members of the In-
ternational Relations Club at a
reactivation meeting Monday
night in the auditorium that the
the 20th Century is in the middle
of a "socialistic revolution" and
claimed that another war could be
avoided if America assumed the
role of mediator between Russia
and Great Britain.
In his speech, "Russian-Ameri-
can relations," Dr. Carleton ex-
plained both Russian and Ameri-
can viewpoints and how each mis-
understands the other. The strug-
gle for balance of power in the
world, he said, is the present cause
for unrest, for, if Russia is favored
in the future, it will jeopardize
America's world influence and
cause real trouble-perhaps an-

ent world hotspots: Iran, Turkey,
China, and the Balkans. Our hope
for peace lies in America's re-

who told the meeting the back-
ground, purpose, and functions of
the organization which is reorgan-

Due to increased enrollment and
universal interest in present day
affairs, the club is being reorgan-
ized to bring systematic discussion
of current problems to the campus
through their efforts. Many well
known speakers on state, national,
and international problems have
been brought to the campus by the
International Relations Club in the
past and reactivation plans for
such activities in the future are
being made. Membership is open
to all who wish to join.

Editor f/ily Speaking:
Orange Peel Comes Back
We've heard talk from many quarters about reviving
that campus. war casualty, the Orange ,Peel. For the bene-
fit of those who have come to the campus since this stu-
dent publication's demise, the Orange Peel is a humor
magazine published by student editors for the student
Plans are being made now to bring the Orange Peel
back to the campus next September following its official
reactivation with the return to the old constitution and
elections this April.
We believe that a large part of the student body
would appreciate a good campus humor magazine. It
would also furnish an excellent outlet for talent of this
sort just as the Alligator furnishes an outlet for campus
But this we feel is not enough. Several years before
the war the student body published a -literary magazine,
the Florida Review, which was well received, not only
on the campus, but was considered the top magazine in
Through'political maneuvers, the Florida Review was
replaced shortly before the war with the. Orange Peel.
But what of the men on the campus whose talent
does not lie' along the lines of humorous writing? Th-ey.
have no outlet for their talent, and the section' of the
student body which has a proclivity to serious literature
is left with no publication of this sort.
We believe that there is a place on the campus for
both publications-that there is enough talent on the cam-
pus to staff both mag'azines--that both would have sub-
stantial enough reading public to justify both publica-
This costs money, however. The.simplie.st way to raise
the money would be to increase the student activity fee
$.50 per person ,and apply this amount to the two maga-
zines. We do not believe that $.50 will break many on0
the campus-most of whom probably throw away con-
siderably more than that in a few minutes time.
The publications (the Orange Peel has been publish-
ed oiarterlv in the past) could be, scheduled to come out
at different times---intersl)ersed so that they would alter-
nate every six weeks. In this way ,four publications would
be available each semester instead of two-two Orange
Peels and two Florida reviews.

Since last Thursday night we
have spoken to Gibbons on the
subject of censorship. We tried
to impress upon him the dangers
lurking in a move as the one he
proposed, and Gibbons ;has niade
the following statement:
"After having inves';g ite d
the matter of student publica-
tions I feel that the supervision
,of what is contained in the pub-
lications should be under the
Board of Ntudent Publications. I
feel that the Board should take
a more active interest to insure
that the publications maintain
a high standard and represent
equally all elements of the stu-
We are glad that Mr. .,..
"Spider" Gibbons has changed
his mind on the censorship issue,
because eventually such a move
could lead to censorship of the
Alligator. Tien Mr. Gibbons
could very effectively squelch us.
He could stop us from criticizing
him, assuming that he would be
a member of the proposed three-
amn committee, which up until
now has seemed most probable.
Such a committee, if precedent is
set with the Seminole, could edit
the editorials in the Alligator.
No, no, a thousand times no,
Mr. Gibbons, no again dear stu-
dent senators who support such
a move, there is no place on this
campus for censorship.
.We have no .personal axes to
grind with Mr. Myron "Spider"
Gibbons, he is a thriee-wounded
veteran and probably a nice
guy, but we do think thai if
Mr. Gibbons is going to set
himself up ais the watch-dog
of the student publications he
ought to work on one and get
acqitainted with the problems
at hand. He very definitely
should argue the pros or cons
of the publications issue object-
ively rather than politically.
It is this writer's hope that
some interested students will
start a petition with the necessary
10 per cent of the student body
signing, so that be it gocd or
bad, the members of the st.lident
body may vote on whether or
not they want publications re-
moved from politics. The actions
of the student senate last Thurs-
day evening were not at all con-
clusive to such public expression.

Vice-Pres'dent A New
The vice-presidency will be a
stake for the first time in several
elections, since the wartime emer-
gency constitution made no pro-
vision for such a post.
Other offices returning to an
electoral basis after being under
the appointive system during the
war are a five-man Athletic
Board, a three-man Lyceum Coun-
cil which is in charge of all large
cultural and entertainment pro-
grams, and a three-man Board of
Election Depends On Amendment
The election for these offices has
been tentatively set for April 4,
but is dependent on a special elec-
tion in which the student body
must first vote to return to the
full-sized pre-war constitution. Ar
emergency amendment cancelling
this constitution was passed dur-
ing the war, but this can be un-
done by a 2-3 majority of those
voting in the special election,
which has been set for March 29.

This he accounts to the shortage
