The state board of control has
approved the rank of college for
the University of Florida's divis-
ion of physical education, health
eai athletics.

Announcement of the action
was made yesterday by Univer-
sity President John J. Tigert, who
also said that the division's direc-
tor, D. K. Stanley, had been elev-
ated to a deanship.
This is the first college of its
kind to be set up in any university
in the Uniter States," Dr. Tigert
declared, "and is intended to dis-
charge the obligation the Univer-
sity of Florida has to the state
in preparing instructors in physi-
cal education, health and athlet-
ics for the secondary schools as
well as directors of recreation for
industrial and municipal posi-
Five Departments
The new college will have five
departments; student health, in-
tercollegiate athletics, intramural
athletics and recreation, required
physical education and the profes-
sional curriculum.
Courses offered in the profes-
sional department will lead to a
degree of bachelor. of arts in phys-
ical education, and Dean Stanley
emphasized that the curriculum
is intended to fit students for
jobs in industry as well as in
schools. The first classes will
start in September.

FSCW Proposes

Amendment To

The student senate of the Flor-
ida State College for Women last
week passed a proposed amend-
ment to the constitution of their
student government, known as the
College Government Association,
to eliminate the dean of students'
office from those which must ap-
prove petitions for candidacy in
student government.
The amendment followed on
the heels of a controversy in
which Miss Betty Schwartz, a
candidate for a post equivalent
to the University of Florida's
honor court chancellor, was dis-
qualified by the dean of student's
at the women's college because
of purportedly holding views not
in accordance with those of the
college concerning procedures
on the judiciary and the divul-
ging of information and opinion
concerning the latter.
In the April 12 issue of "The
Florida Flambeau." student news-
paper of the Tallahassee institu-
tion, both Miss Catherine Barrs,
dean of students, and Miss
Schwartz, aired their views of the

The night group of the Vet-
erans' Wives Club will hold its
first meeting on Tuesday night,
April 23, at 8:00 p.m. in Room
209 of the Florida Union. All
wives who work, or otherwise
are unable to take part in the
day group, are cordially invited
to join this club.

Concerted action on the acute campus housing sit-
nation has finally begun--not with official action by
University officials-but by a group of married students
in Murphre'e Hall.
Some 60 couples in the dormitories, who will soon be
affected by the recent rulings which will force tlneir re-
moval from the dorms, have organized into a housing
committee to speed action. W. F. Turier, chairman of
the committee, revealed last night that '. 1, L-'., of pro-

A large buli-dozer was pushing

Three housewives having a fam-

had the following to say. "We

tinued as far as food prices and
rent ceilings are concerned. It
is Important that the rent ceil-
ings are kept because otherwise
it will be much harder for the

things that people would like to

that the OPA should be continued.

Methodist Win
Volleyball From
The ice-bound victory series of
the Presbyterian volleyball team
over the Methodists was broken
Tuesday night on the former's
court as the. Wesleyan boys took
the rubber game of a three-game
set by a score of 23-21. They
had taken an earlier match with
a 24-22 win, while their rivals
copped the third by a lopsided
21-8 count.
This was the first win in sev-
eral starts for the Methodists,
who have. however, beaten a
Baptist aggregation in the only
,game the latter has played to
date. An Episcopal group is
reportedly being organized to
form a four-way church league.

Going into the last week of the bracket play of the intramural
diamond play-off series, the Pikes, Alpha Gams, SAE's and the
ATO's seem cinches to cop their way to the final play.
As this is written the ATO's have won their bracket with
wins over the Phi Delts, KA's, Chi Phi, and Sigma Nu. Behind
the steady pitching of little Pete Hartsaw the ATO's have been
playing superb ball.
In the number one bracket the Alpha Gamma Rho frat has won
four games and need only a win over the DTD to cop their' section
of the series. The Pi Lams, Pi Kappa Phi, Theta Chi, and Phi Gamma
Delta have fallen before the pitching arm of their star hurler, Mur-
The 'SAE's seem to have just about cinched the number three
bracket as they have downed the Sigma Clii, Newman Club, Kappa
Sig, and Phi Kappa Tau. Needing only a win over the TEP to
cinch their bracket, they have played some very good defensive
ball in their games.
In the number four bracket the Pikes have found little opposi-
tion as they have bowled over the CLO, BTP, and Inter-Amer, in
their only three games, They have to meet the SPE to win their
bracket. The Pikes have won all their games by large scores and
have had only one run to cross their plate. Displaying super batting
power and with an errorless infield behind the speed ball hurling
of Bill Boyd, they have been the master team on the field in their
Next week the four winners of the brackets will start a play-cff
to determine the intramural champion of the year.
With drawing completed and team ready to start hitting
the ball, the first step toward co-education has been taken by the
intramural department as a mixed doubles has been started on
this campus for the first time in the history of the University
of Florida.
Ten teams have entered squads and it looks like it will be a huge
success. Play was to begin on last Wednesday, but the weather man
had other ideas and heavy rains made the courts a little too wet
for the history making event to take place.
With the drawing complete here is the way they will play in
the first round:
Hal Crosby and Pat Sheppard vs. Billy Wayne and Betty Lou
Mr. and Mrs. James Downecy vs. Jack Weeks and Martha
Jack Suberman and Stella Suberman vs. Mario Lester and
Carolyn Gamble.
Professor Wilson and Maidie Dutton vs. Dick Levengood
and Jess Wilder.
Jack Johnson and Iris Johnson vs. Emory Pierce and Mar-
garet Pierce.
