cording to a recent announcement
by President John J. Tigert.
In announcing the new depart-

in the mechanical engineering de-
partment in the past, this would
for the first time make available
to students a degree in the field

Support Amendments To Be
Voted On In Ballot Today
Tomorrow the student body goes to the polls to
vote on two amendments, both of which are of vital
importance to the student body.
The first of these is the amendment to put the stu-
dent government and elective, system back on the plan of
the regular Constitution which prevailed before the war.
It takes a total vote cast of 25 per cent of the student body
with two-thirds of votes concurring to make the old Con-
As the return to the regular constitution is generally
favored, it should pass, provided that 25 per cent of the
student body turns out to vote. So get out and vote.
The second amendment is of a more controver-
sial nature and deals with whether the executive po-
sitions of publications, editors and business managers,
should be appointive rather than elective.
The Alligator from the first took a non-partisan view
that these positions should be appointive rather than elec-
tive. This opinion ha's been supported by all who have
been connected with student publications on the- grounds
that technical qualifications and experience that are nec-
essary for efficiency in the editing of publications should
not be made- dependent on political popularity.
The Alligator advanced 'this proposal before it
was picked up by the politicians and made a political
football. It was supported on the sincere belief that
it would take publications out of the realm of politics
and put it on a basis of editorial merit.
The Alligator still sticks to its guns. Got out and
vote-this amendment is important.

These cinema features will be "old

expected to run the gamut of the
best films in past years.
The premier showing is sched-

be offered during the present se-

form of bridge games and teas.

Elections Are Important
The deadline for registration for voting in the sena-i
trial elections comes in the second week in April.
Tills is not a regular off-yeiar election that has im-
portance only in the fanfare and hullabaloo of ordinary
years. It y ill qualify citizens to vote for a senator to fill
Florida's present vacancy in the upper house at a time
when the Senatte is more and more assuming leadership
in affairs of state that have lapsed in other years.
It should be incumbent on every Florida student who
is of age to register his views on the momentous affairs of
the present by becoming qualified to vote in the election
on May 7. Transportation has been announced from the
Florida Union today from 2 to 4 p. m., which should fa-
cilitate matters for many a weary man and woman.
So let's get out and register, and then let's vote, A
Senate seat is a matter of vast importance to all of us
at present. It can swing world affairs into one channel
or another. And once, too often the channels of our nation-
al history have been filled with blood.

The Campus Today
Student politics on this campus
are often taken too seriously by a
few men. However, the usual
trouble is that the majority take
them entirely too lightly. It is
very easy to regard campus noli-
tics as something pretty foolish
The comparative handful of people
who turned out for the non-par-
tisan rally last Monday night
makes that fact only too evident.
One explanation for this state of
affairs may lie in the fact that too
few men stop to consider what stu-
dent government is all about. Few
of us realize that many of the
elective offices are important
enough to warrant salaries or ex-
pense accounts. Nor do many con-
sider that the top offices are
sometimes stepping stones to state
politics. They have been before
and probably will be in the future.
To some of the oldtimers and
many of the newcomers, the
charges and countercharges, claims

The second meeting of the Red
Cross "Kitchen Party" was held
at the home of Prof. and Mrs.
John MacLachlan, 2122 Broome
Street, March 21, under the di-
rection of Miss Loyette Webb,
Red Cross nutrition field repres-
entative, office, Atlanta, Ga.
Part of the Red Cross nutrition
service is to help housewives plan
and prepare balance meals. Flavet
Village is the first in the county
to enjoy this service.
This work is planned around
kitchen parties so that the,
wives can have fun while learn-
ing. Five wives from Flavet
Village are chosen each werek
to learn and pass on the latest
recipes of the month. Each
of the five girls will pass on
what they have learned to five
neighbors, and they in turn vea,
give the recipes to their friends.
In this way, the recipes can
be handed to any number of
housewives who wish to keep
up with better food nutrition.
This plan os based on the theory
that housewives do not have Lime
to look for the latest in culinary
arts, so the Red Cross takes over
the job and passes the recipes on
to the wives at kitchen parties.
The unit of three lessons begIn
on February 23. This week's
theme and discussion was on "Sav-
ing Fats." Next month the dis-
cussion will turn to "Meat is
Scarce and Expensive."
"No home is complete with-
out the proper food, and know-
ledge of preparing it," said Mrs.
Webb. "The purpose of the
Red Cross is to help cure the
nation's ills, and the nutrition
is one of the ills. This is one
