wishing to submit qualifications

Athletic Director Dennis K.

meeting of presidents or repre-
sentatives from all social, honor-
ary, utility, and professional frats
and clubs on the campus in room
209 of Florida Union Tuesday
night at 7:30.
Every campus organization
was strongly urged to have a
member present at this meet-
ing, which is sponsored by Flor-
ida Blue Key and has been call-
ed for the purpose of discussing
plans for the 1947 Homecoming
event, President Nixon Butt
said today.
Butt pointed out that with
the large enrollment scheduled
for the fall, the 1946 program
will be the first big Homecom-
ing since the three day busy
events held before the war.
"We are requesting coopera-
tion and suggestions from the va-
rious campus groups to aid in
presenting an outstanding Home-
coming, and especially to show
the people of Florida that the stu-
dent body is supporting the new
sports program," Butt said.
Homecoming is a traditional-
ly Florida Blue Key-sponsored
program. Events before the
war included, in addition to the
Saturday football game, a Fri-
day night Gator Growl with
boxing, dancing and singing per-
formers, and other entertain-
ment; swimming events pre-
senting aquatic stars; several
banquets, among them the FBK

meetings; and other affairs wth

Honor Court

Verdict Changes

Election Count
As a result of both a recount
on certain disputed ballots, and
of an Honor Court decision hand-
ed down last night, the confused
race for freshman executive coun-
cil members was finally settled.
Thirteen men had been nominat-
ed to the post, only five of whom
could be elected. A total of 67
ballots were cast which marked
six, instead of the required five,
names, on the preferred list. As a
result the Honor Court declared
invalid the vote of these 67 per-
sons insofar as the freshman ex-
ecutive council is concerned, and
tabulated the vote of the remain-
Winners are Guy Collins (G),
Don Jones (G), Bill O'Neill (D),
Sterling Peacock (G), and El-
gin White (D). Jones, Collins,
O'Neill and Peacock appeared to
have won by clear pluralities.
The close race was runm off be-
tween White and Harry Hurst, a
Dixie nominee, but the invalida-
tion of the Illegal ballots gave
White the victory.
Buck, Lewis Win
Recounts also accounted for two
other upsets. Billy Lewis, Dixie
nominee, who had been declared
the loser to Frank Smoak by five
votes for secretary of the Athletic
Board, emerged the winner by 10.
In an inter-party race, using the
precedent set by the decision in
the case of the freshman ballots,

Skinner, Bush

On Cancer Drive
President of the Student Body
Bill Colson has named Student
Senate members Wallis Skinner
and William Bush as a commit-
tee to work with the Gainesville
group of the American Cancer
Society during their present drive
for funds.
Jack Murray, chairman of the
drive here at the campus, stated
early this week that social fra-
ternities had been notified of in-
dividual quotas and that the two
Senate members would work with
him in soliciting dormitories and
off-campus rooming houses.
At various buildings on the cam-
pus coin cups will be placed and
will enable persons to contribute
who are not contacted elsewhere.
The University's quota of $250
is a part of the $1,566 which will
be raised in Alachua County to
fight cancer. Cancer's toll in
Florida has increased steadily
during recent years. During 1944
there were more deaths as a re-
sult of this disease than the com-
bined total of three other leading
causes of death.
"For such a cause," said Mur-
ray, "we should all give-whether
in small amounts or large-every
bit is needed to to wage the fight
against the dreaded disease." He
continued by saying that during
the first eleven months of 1945
cancer killed 2,072 men, women
and children in Florida. "Surely
cancer is near us-let's fight it
with our money," he said.

A week or so ago up Tallahas-

dent which offends most of us
who believe that students can ite
effectively self-governed. This is
the case of a young lady who an-
nounced her candidacy for the of-
fice of chairman of judiciary,
which corresponds to Florida's
'lianeellor of the honor court. A
"a(1y committee led by Dean
(lixia N. Dornan decided that the
view, on matters held by one Bet-/

Free Student Eections
It seems that there's a dean in the wood-pile at

A candidate for Chairman of Judiciary, a position
colTesponding to Chancellor of the Honor Court .here,
has been disqualified from seeking office in student elec-
tions0 by arbitrary action of a faculty committee.
Reasons given by the spokesman, a; dean,., are vague,
resolving around the fact that the candidate's views do
inot coincide with those of "existing"' college policy. It
seems to us that "existing'" college policy in this case
wishes to deny the, student body its right- to nominate and
elect t own student officers. Obviously something should
be done.
Certain Iquarters favor the "wellaimed brick" tech-
nique, with perhaps an occasional burnt effigy. Others
lack even this elemental tact, and go all[ out for Balkan
methods. Somehow, we feel that techniques of this sort,
while they would undoubtedly offer delightful diversion,
are not (fi[ite fitted to the particular situation.
It is time'that everybody learned to play by the rules,
and we believe that the student body at Tally can. teach'
the necessary lessons. Things should be made so hot for
the offending parties, that they will think twice before
again attempting to fiddle with student government. Pe-
titions, rallies, and lots of unfavorable publicity shouldI
do the trick.
So man the barricades, let fly the bricks, and let
the deans fall where they may. D. S.

Coeds Come With Joint Plani
A big break for the cause of coeducation: came, last
week-end when a joint convention of the Florida Student
Government Association and the Florida Inter-Collegiate
Association met at Stetson University and adopted a res-
olution calling for coeducation at the University and
This announcement comes at a time when the drive
for coeducation was running at a low ebb on. the campus.
With crowded living conditions, chances to get coeduca-
tion, in 1947 looked pretty slim. Conditions are crowded
-this we grant-but the University is going to have, to
expand some day. It is inevitable, for unless we do ex-
pand, enrollment will have to be limited--and the policy
of keeping Florida boys out of their own state university
isn't going to be popular.
ft is inevitable that the University is going to have
to be expanded, and there seems to us to be no logical
reason why it can't be enlarged to hold coeds too. When
the bill goes before the 1947 Legislature it should call
for immediate funds for expansion and coeducation as
soon as facilities have been sufficiently enlarged.
With a plan for coeducation at both. state univer-
sities, some of the stress of overcrowding would be lessen-
ed as both schools level off in their enrollment-some
from here would undoubtedly move to Tallahassee and
some would come down here.
So let's get to work.

Kentucky Gets Art Buildinq
One million dollars was granted the University of
Kentucky, a state-run institution, last week, by the State
Legislature and Board of Control, for the purpose of build-
ing a fine arts building.
The contract has already been awarded a Lexington
construction company, and. the university has consigned
officials to begin immediate conferences with federal
authorities to gain building priorities.
In addition, the state also approved a new men's
dormitory to house 108 male students;. This living center
will include full recreational facilities.
The fine arts, building will house a. music depart-
I ment, an art department, a memorial theatre, and, speech:

The Bull Sessi(
Who does. student government
represent? That question came to
mind this week after surveying
the results and methods of the
political fracas that ended in a
pretty clean split between parties
last Thursday.
Taking a little 'private con-
sensus, we found' that almost
every dormiltory inhabilanti who
was posed witi tile questions
"Did you vote ?" answered ill
the affirmative. The same was
true to an even greater, extent
among the fraternity iner, who,
probably comprisedl half.t' hie en-
tire total of voters in the sti-
dent balloting.
However, we come next to what
is called by many the "Sticks,"
inhabited by a full third of the
student body, most of whom used
to refer to themselves as the "Bar,-
barians" as distinguished from the
frat men, or "Greeks."
Considering that about 900'
fratttrnity men voted, anrt, that.
over 500 (h( dormitory dwellers
probably east an opinion, at the
polls, this" leaves only 351) hal-
lots to be aseribed to the initia-
tlive of the off-canmpfis inde-
pendents. Approximately two-
thirds(, or all thlie others, didn't
get. around l'to voting.
This is a bad year, in that
things have been so disorganized
that the usual "orientation" could
not be accomplished. And besides,
the nature of many of the new
students is such that (and it is
justified from the practical stand-
point) their one wish is to get
through, and get out.
Why there is a student govern-
ment, what makes it necessary o0
even desirable, what if any pow-
ers it has, and what the difference
is as to whether one votes or not
has been a decided mystery tc
many hundreds of new men.
Let's get specific. Let's iso-
late a typical power of student
government. Students were ask-
ed to vote for five men, running
for various posts on an "Ath-
letic Board." No one bothered
to tellI lhe hordes of; newcomers
the significance of this board;

Gopher And Ed's Column

While the voting was going on
last week and students were
crowded around the polls, we
struck up a conversation with one
of our campus policemen. We
found this man to be a mild-
mannered Georgian of the Steven-
son jan. He has been working for
the University for about two
years. He did, however, leave us
last year to take a job in a wkar
industry in Jacksonville, but as
soon as the war was over, he glad-
ly returned to his old job here at
the University: '
Mr. Stevehnson enjoys this job,
because of the minimum of
trouble he has' had with way-
ward students. As as character-
istic of a ttlne Southerner, he

says that all that is necessary
is to ask the rule-breakers to
convert their energies to some-
thing worthwhile. In other
words, instead of throwing a
telephone pole through Peabody
Hall, move your activities to the
athletic field or to the gym.
Mr. Stevenson lives in Micanopy
and has been happily married for
thirty years. His wife's and his
favorite hobby run in the same
channel. She likes to cook, and
he likes to eat her cooking.
By the way, if any of you boys
in Murphrce are suffering from
indigestion, we are sure that Mr.
Stevenson would be glad to have
you out for dinner. If this does
not fit in with your plans, we are

attention than it usually gets."
So wrote noted Author-Lecturer
John Erskine in a recent review
concerning "Florida Under Five
Flags," by Dr. Rembert W. Pat-
rick, professor of social sciences
at the University.
This book, Professor Patrick's
second, is designed as a State Cen-
tennial volume for the general
reader interested in the history of
Florida. It appeals to both na-
tives and tourists as it fills the
long prevalent abyss between the
lengthy, cold, dry, multi-dated in-
formation afforded by the tradi-
tional history reference, and the
other extreme, that of acquiring
no acquaintance at all with the
facts. The method involved was
fundamental, though facilitated
with the utmost skill, that of pro-
ducing the much-needed concise,
accurate and readable history of
this rapidly growing state.
To quote William Du Bois of
the New York Times Review,
Feb. 3, 1946: "Florida, as Dr.
Patrick's volume reminds us, has
always needed a historian who
could be brief, interpretative--
and accurate; between the
hymns of her Chambers of Com-
merce and the scholars' mono-
*graphs, the average reader has
had every right to hesitate.
"Florida Under Five Flags"
should go a long way toward
solving that same reader's di-
lemma. it is solid history,
it is always compact and

He spent several years teaching
in South Carolinian pu'clic schools
and one in the department of his-
tory at Merideth College, 1939-
1940. He arrived on the Gator

Florida Under Five Flags is the
first publication of the University

The University of Florida could
not halt a second inning batting
spree by the Jacksonville Naval
Air Station and towed to the Fly-
ers 18 to 2 in yesterday's baseball
game at Fleming Field.
The Navy nine sent 16 men to
the plate in their big onslaught
and II of them crossed the plate
before Jim Forbiss, who re-
placed Bill Cromartie on the
mound for Florida, could quell
the fire.
Bill Demars and Charles Pel-
egini both contributed a single
ind a double during the uprising
and Jack Feehan, who started the
rally had two singles. Chuck
Shields added a triple to the gen-
eral confusion as the visitors
combed Cromartie for six consec-
utive hits before Forbiss came to
the rescue.
Two more Navy runs crossed
the plate in the third when Pel-
legini tripled after Berner and
Schmagel had singled.
The Flyers combined two walks
with one hit and a Florida error
for three scores in the seventh and
wound up the parade in the ninth

Bill Demars, who Florida sports
fans will remember for his out-
standing performances on the bas-
ketball court last winter, had two
singles and a double.
Forbiss proved to be the second
best Orange and Blue hitter with
two singles.
The game was a scorer's night-
mare as the two teams scored 20
runs, made 26 hits and 9 errors.
The four pitchers walked nine tat-
ters, committed two wild pitches
and hit two batsmen all in two
hours and forty minutes.

Tuesday afternoon, Brian Meharg of the ATO house captured th
tennis singles crown by defeating Jim Loomis of the SAEs. Mehar
won in three straight matches by defeating the SAE contestant 6-(
6-3, 6-2.
Meharg gained the finals by defeating a strong Newman Club
entry and Loomis earned his chance by defeating the Delta Tau
Delta team. The ATO entry showed exceptional form through-
out the tournament and seemed to have no trouble in annexing
the title.
At the time this edition went to press the tennis doubles match
is still in the quarter final sta,gne. So far the two strongest teams
seem to be the Cohen-Riggens combination in their bracket and
the SAE entry in theirs. This afternoon's play will see the Cohen-
Riggens team lock rackets with tie Sigma Chi team and Pi Lambs
vs. SAE.
This past week has seen some fine soft tall play going on on th
drill field and should be climaxed by the game today between the ATI

The Less Said

By Les Gleichenhaus
Out of the misty and muddy
Mississippi Delta. comes the voice
of hatred. Bilbo the bigot resides
there. He hates everybody but fat
pock-faced Bilbo. When he opens
his mouth, verbal defecation pours
forth. Is the man sane? Is he an
American? Is he at peace with
God ?
It is quite evident that he is
a sane enough to win elections
t. by appealing to the prejudices
of his constituents. He har-
angues them into believing
big business will ruin the
farmer, that the North is still
bleeding the South and that
furrinerss" are no good.
He will swear up and down that
he is a true American. He'll show
you papers and documents about
his grandpappy who fought the
Yankees to him that is being
true American! When we think of
e someone or something being
pg 'American' we feel that he em-
0, bodies our way of life, of good
honest living, and sincere brother-
hood. Bilbo is entirely devoid of
these traits.
He is a fish out of water
and belongs in Hell with such
tyrannical demagogues as
Hitler, Mussolini and the rest
of the rotters. We fervently
hope that the day is not far
when he will renew old ac-
quaintances with the scourges
of mankind.
Bilbo hates facts and figures.
They refute his lying statements.
Mississippi is dismayed. The
South is appalled. The nation is
e ashamed.
