raise the University's quota in
the drive easily," Murray said, if
each student will try-reinem-

Jobs Held By 75 Per Cent Of Students


Seventy-five per cent of the
students at the University would
be unable to attend college with-
out the aid of part time employ-
ment, J. Ed. Price, assistant dean
of students and administrator of
the Student Help Service, disclos-
ed yesterday.
Under the direction of the Self
Help Committee headed by R. C.
Beaty, dean of students, the Bu-
reau of Self Help operates to aid
.students find employment and
helps the University to get em-
ployees where needed.
Annually, the bureau places at
least 65 per cent of the student
body in part-time jobs, either on
or off the campus without which.
the students would be unable to
meet their living expenses while
gaing an education. Another
10 per cent get jobs on their own.
Students are not hired by the
Self Help department, rather they
are sent to an individual requir-


ing their types of ability. All stu-
dents hired on the campus are,
however, approved or disapproved
by the office of the dean of stu-
dents.
With funds supplied by the Uni-
versity, students are paid for
working on the campus in jobs
ranging anywhere from janitor
service to constructing delicate
laboratory equipment. Pay, which
in former years averaged 25 cents
an hour, now averages 50 cents,
with a minimum of 35 cents and
a maximum of 65 cents. At times
a particularly skilled student may
earn even more for a special job.
A survey through the years cov-
ering scholarship of working and
non-working students shows that
on the average, the student work-
ing part-time "shows a marked-
ly better scholastic average,"
Dean Price said, adding that two
factors appear to cause these re-
sults: (1) the student must main-


tain a C average, or better than
passing grades to held his job;
and (2) he is generally more seri-
ous than the student who does not
have to worry about making his
own way.
Although veterans attending the
University have been advised to
spend their first semester read-
justing to study habits, over one-
third, or about 600 veterans ncw
in school are employed.
Dean Price points out that "the
G. I. Bill of Rights is a wonder-
ful help to the veteran, but it
does not provide for a four year
vacation." To take advantage of
the benefits the student must
make sacrifices. Many veterans,
especially those with children, are
using savings this semester, but
next fall at least 1,200 will have
to supplement their incomes with
part-time earnings, he predicted.
Over 200 wives of students have
been placed in full time employ-


ment by the bureau. The bureau
helps the students and their wives
and in return the University ob-
tains economical and efficient
workers who do more work than
is indicated by the actual dollar
and cents output. -Student work-
ers prove "reliable, efficient, and
honest," he said.
At the present time there are
still many unfilled part-time jobs
on the campus but Dean Price pre-
dicts two or three applicants for
every campus position by next
September when the enrollment
may reach 5,000. When several
men apply for a single job, the
employment is given to the one
who needs it most. In cases of
equal need it is awarded to the
student with the highest scholas-

Gator Gets Executive Council

Almost a complete reverse of the situation in the last
election, in which the Gator Party copped the top offices
and the Dixie Party swept both Student Senate and Honor
Court, resulted from Thursday's campuswide elections for
student body officers to take office in May.
Harry Parham, Dixie nominee for president, received
a total vote of 887 to Gator Candidate Bill Norman's 854,
a difference of only 33 votes but enough to capture the top
spot in Florida's student government for the next year.
A total of 60 per cent of the student body registered in
the current semester cast
ballots, judging from ,the received the decision over Leon
count in the top contest. McKim for clerk

executive council spcts by elect- Forehand, in the secretary-
ing Jack Lucas to the vice prdi- treasurer contest, received the
dency over Bob 'Mann, and Art biggest majority of any candidate
Forehand over Bill Edmiston for in the field, gaining a margin of
secretary-treasurer. 290 ballots.


In most other fields except that
of the Lyceum Council, Gator
Party nominees won the honors.
tThe council, consisting of a presi-
dent and three members, will be
headed by H. D. "Rich" Richard-
son. who will be assisted by Al
Asenjo, John Chowning and Byron
Buck.
The new Athletic Council will
be headed by Bill Raborn, who de-
feated Dixie's Lennie Glasser.
Pete Hartsaw won in his race for
vice president while Frank Smoak
squeezed, by Billy Lewis with a
margin of five votes out of 1,594
votes cast for the office. Members
elected with these men are Jack
Hagar and Billy Mims, Gator Par-
ty candidates.
Gator Takes Publications
With the exception of Tom
Jarvis, running for member of
the Board of Student Publica-
tions on both tickets, all Gator
nominees in the publications
field were elected to office. In
addition to Jarvis, Johnny
Walker and Dave Sage will join
the new board, .
Unopposed Gator party edi-
tors who will assume their du-
ties in the fall are Pat O'Neal on
the Seminole, Jack Doherty on
the Orange Peel, and Bob Mc-
Leish for the "F" Book. In the
contest for business posts Al
Sheehan defeated Max Brewer
on the Seminole, Tom Hender-
fon passed S. H. Brakefield for
the Orange Peel's top business
post, and Sam Muriel topped
Dewey Newton to gain business
-managership of the "F" Book.
Amendment Passes
Almost unopposed, and left en-
tirely out of the political battles,
an amendment to the student body
constitution which would place
the expenditures for intramural
at the discretion of the Director
of Athletics of the University,
allowing him to delegate funds
from the athletic fees as he sees
the need, passed overwhelmingly,
with only 167 dissenting in a total
vote of 1326.
Trend Continues
The trend for the lower offices
.was fairly consistent with a 2-1.
ratio in favor of Gator Party
candidates being evident after
the ballots were counted.. In-
cluding both unopposed and bi-
partisan candidates, Dixie cop-
ped 13 offices in the Executive
Council and the Honor Court,
while Gator took 26 whereas the
ration was exactly reversed in
the last election.
This count does not include that
of the University College contests,
where the issue Was still in doubt
due to the casting of many fresh-
man Lallots which checked six
candidates for freshman Execu-
tive Council, whereas the instruc-
tions had specifically stated that
only five should be marked. The
results will be known after an
Honor Court decision on the case
this week. Thirteen 'candidates
were seeking Council posts in the
freshman class.

BLUE KEY
APPLICATIONS DUE
Students who wish to apply
for membership in Florida Blue
Key, highest honorary organiza-
tion on the campus, should turn
in their qualifications at the
Florida Union desk by April 16.
New members of the leader-
ship fraternity will be selected
at a meeting of the organization
April 23. The absolute deadline
for submitting qualifications is
April 16.


The most important positions
on the Honor Court both went
to Gator Party nominees. In the
race for chancellor Herb Stall-
worth gained the victory, over
Myron Gibbons, and Joe Melvin

Last week we wrote of the de-

ently "left out in the cold" by
University officials in their plan-

believe ,,' have only touched the
su-face on the housing situation,

The TUniversity committee nil

married couples may have what
is left.
They also decided at the same
meeting that should any space be
available to married couples those
couples will occupy whole sections
or" none at all. In other words, if
there are only five couples who
are eligible for dorm rooms they
will not receive the rooms, since
five couples would not fill a whole
section. No single students will
be allowed to occupy space in a
section being used by married
students.
It was also decided at the meet-
intg that entrance into the Uni-
er --sitv next vear will be limited

'The committee, which is com-

attempting to find off-campuns

effortt on the part of University,
nnd would seem to solve the prac-
tical aspects of the situation, lets
see what happens when you bring
it down to the individual cases
in question.
In the first place, almost all
of ti eo'lupies have ad.(jiisteia
their college finances on the
basis .of dormitory rent, which
is admittedly reas6hnble. Now
they are being made to live off-
camnpus, and anyone familiar
with the off-eamplus housing
sit nation is aware of the fact
that many of the local land-
lords are a-hki.n fifty and sixty
dollars for living quarters which,
look li'e ilh,.ri'fi-d orange (crates,
many MiI-uil .1 private bath at
that.
Another factor which is obvi-
ously being ignored, is that single
students as a rule only require a
single room. of which there are
plenty available at more reason-
able rates. Rates for apartments
are outragously high even if an
apartment can be found. Another
idea which could be used by some
couples is that of renting a house
together with another couple, but

The air is tense with the thrill
of a simple week-end that can be
enjoyed by boys in Jacksonville

Although 76 more units will be

new units will still be available
only to couples with children. No
more applications are being nc-
cepted for couples desiring dor:n

pated enrollment of at leist 5,O)0
students next year, it nmuist be
obvious to the residence .,1,,,,
tee that under th''ir new policy
ihere can be absolutely no sp1ieo
available to couples -when the Sep-
Lember semester begins.
The fact that provisions have i
been made fror sinKgle students ani
for married counles with children
while nothing whatsoever is beinm
done for the childless couples, only
accentuates the need for some
type of central clearing-house for
housing.
Such a system could be male
feasible if the Gainesville Chamm-
ber of Commerce, the Dean of
Students' office and Gator Vel-
erans set up a central housing
bureau, in cooperation with tIle

it is given to the University of
Florida," said the forester, "for
the best instrument yet devised
for acid treatment of naval stores
trees for increased gum yield."

The Campus Today


The securing of a campus co-
operative laundry is an issue
which has been kicked around
by the political parties for some
time. Action is at last being
taken on behalf of the proposal
by a group of students headed
by Frank Duckworth and Gene
Baroff. The Alligator last week
carried an account of the pro-
posal as submitted to the stu-
dent body president.
The plan calls for forming a
student cooperative which would
be authorized to let contracts to
local laundries on the basis of
cost and service. The need for an
organization of this type has long"
been felt here.
Local cleaning establishments
have been able to get away with
high prices, poor work, and poorer
service, because there was noth-
ing that we would do about it.
A cooperative organization such
as proposed may well be opposed
by local cleaners because of the
fact that it will represent an or-
ganized student body-an orga-
nized group which can cut off a

large volume of the;r business if
their service proves unsatisfac-
tory.
A cooperative would give us a
voice with which to bargain with
the laundries. We "victims" of
the local clothing destroyers will
be glad to see the shoe on the
other foot.

oks and Th.
We didn't know until this week
how important it was to get news
to you about books, and things.
Early in March we received about
forty copies of the scarce Fair-
child ECONOMICS that so. many
of you had been doing without.
They dribbled out slowly as word
got around. It was only this week
that one section found out about
it, and we were swamped. That
makes things tough as we could
have spent all of March trying to
locate additional copies so that
everybody taking the 'course could
get a book before final exams
come around. We just learned
too that there 'are still quite a few
other courses without *-o6ks. Arid
we want to 'do something about
it.
As you know, the present ar-
rangement of .1. i i,. veteran
students with books is not very
satisfactory to us. Veterans may
get books only when the Univer-
sity cannot supply them. Not too
bad but it puts us sitting' pre-
cariously astride an 8-ball. Ear-
lier in the semester .when this
questionable arrangement had not
yet come to pass we just couldn't
order any books as we had no po-
tential buyers except non-veter-
an students, and a few veterans
who wanted them bad eiinotgh to
pay with personal funds. The lo-
cal VA representative asked us
to cooperate with the University
and the present set up was the
result. But we were caught with
quite a few books on our selves
that threw us for a loss. After
wve had received a large shipment
of Cable PHYSICAL SCIENCE,
Howe, INT TO PHYSICS, MEAN-
ING IN READING, QUARTO OF
MODERN LITERATURE, etc.,
the University got theirs. Now
we have lots of them on hand.
What would be of .benefit to stu-
dents and us would be a contract
from the VA to supply books on
the same basis as the University
of Florida. We just got out a re-
port of operations for the past
three months showing the large
number of books we provided, and
how we helped, alleviate the con-
fusion caused by courses without
books. We sent the report to va-
rious interested parties with a re-
quest that this contract be grant-
ed us. We will keep you. posted
on the results.
Thus far we have billed the Uni-
versity for about five hundred
books. This does not include those
bought for cash by the large num-
ber of veterans earlier in the se-
mester. All these books were re-
ported hard to get, scarce, out of
print, and all that Only a few
were, really.
In the meanltimfe we are still
trying to get more of the books
you need. Listed below are some
titles some of you might still be
waiting for. We have them in
small .i,,i.i. There are oth-
er titles xwe know we can order for
you. If you still need a textbook
try at once. If we don't have it
we will locate one for you and ad--
vise you when we have it.
Right now we have 2 copies of
Kokonfoor MATHEMATICS IN
HUMAN AFFAIRS; 9 LAB MAN-
UAL OF GENERAL CHEMIS-
TRY; 3 COLLEGE CARAVAN;
20 Brown QUARTO OF MODERN
LITERATURE. We can get cop-
ies of Garvei' & Henson PRINCI-
PLES OF ECONOMICS and Lock-
lin ECONOMICS OF TRANSPOR-
TATION on special, order. We
are still hunting for Sensation anrf
Motivation texts. And we expect
more WEBSTER'S COLLEGIATE

posted by dropping in periodical-
ly. And as a'n aside,, if any in-
structOr .- ;i- w this would advise

Mixed Tennis Doubles Set

By Intramural Department
For the first time in the history of the. University of Florida
Intramural Department it has taken a definite step, toward cc-
education with the announcement that there will be a mixed double
tennis tourney for the members of the University faculty, veterans'
wives, employees of the school, and anyone else connected with or
living on the campus.
The entries must be in by Wednesday, April 10. They are to be
given to the Intramural Department, at which time the drawings will
be made. This tourney does not have any bearing on the regular intra-
mural league. It is for the employees and other wcmen on the campus
to give them a chance to ha.vd a tournament in which they can, take
part. So all of the racquet swingers who have been working out on
the courts, take a male or female partner and enter the meet.
Coach Spurgeon Cherry, director of the department, is interest-
ed in seeing how many women on the campus are interested in such
tournaments so that he can plan similar events for the coming
year.

tions of this issue, but to keep the records straight, a fine
Inter-American team defeated tlie Phi Lelt team to cap-
ture thle basketball title and the ATO's took the track
meet with comparative ease.
TENNIS ,UNLJERWAAY AT PRESENT TIME
Monday of this week saw tennis singles off to a fine
start with one of the. best crops of contestants entered ili
many a year. 'The finals are scnectuled to be run off Tues-
day of next week and so tar tne'contest seems to be going
in favor of Brian Meharg of ATO. The two semi-inmals
matches are scheduling ATO against Kappa Sig and SAE
against DTD.
The contest for tennis doubles is still pretty much in
the unpredictable stage as only two matches have been
run oft at this time. A good team to keep your eye on is
the independent team ot Cohen-Rliggens.

In one of the less exciting
games of this semester's basket-
ball tournament a dark horse
Inter-American team defeated the
Phi Delt entry by a score of 40
to 26 to capture the basketball
title. The Inter-American club
took the lead in the opening min-
utes and held it until the final
whistle blew.
While the Phi-Delts were un-
doubtedly hindered by the ab-
sence of two of their star court
men, they seemed to lack the
winning form shown earlier
when they defeated a strong
SAE entry in one of the open-
ing games of the tournament.
The two Phi Delts absent were
Winn and Pough, both absent
due to injuries.
The Inter American club
grabbed the lead by scoring eight
points before the Phi Delts were
able to score their first counter.
At the end of the first quarter
the score was 21-7 in favor of the
Inter-American. Dixon of the Phi
Delt team seemed to be finding
the basket by this time and at
half the score stood at 34 to 15.
While some excellent floor
work was shown by both teams,
the Inter Americans seemed
most capable at the scoring,
and at the end of the third quar-
ter the score was still in favor
of Inter-American to the tune
of 37 to 20.
Craig and Mikell were the two
high point men for the winners
with thirteen and eleven points.
Dixon was high point man for the
losers with eleven points. Aside
from the scoring of these men one
of the high lights of the game
was the excellent floor play of
Clement for the Inter-American
club. He also showed up very
well in the rebound department
and could be considered respon-
sible for a great many more points
than the score book credited him
with.
This, being a double elimina-
tion tournament, was the second
defeat suffered by the Phi Delts
at the hands of the Inter-Amer-
icans. The score of the first
game was a bit more decisive,
48 to 28. The officiating was
handled by Henderson and Prit-
chett with Crowley and Savage
handling the scoring and time.

will address the International
Relations Club Monday night
in Florida Union on the sub-
ject of world economics.
