told FBK members and guests
that "the tide of opportunity is
fast flowing full of tre Univer-

He urged FBK members to take
advantage of their opportunities
for service to the University and
to maintain a spirit worthy of the

the objectives of education he

without health no education is of
value; next comes the acquired
power if intellectual labor; and
last the development of a sense of
honor and respect for others-
there is no precedence among
them-they are interdependent.
Thomas W. Bryant, Lakeland,
serving his third term as a mem-
ber of the Board of Control, was
made an honorary member of the
FBK as was Dr. H. Harold Hume,

University Student's Life
Saved By Blood Donors

Dean Dennis K. Stanley called
up the Alligator office the other

the other end of the line that he

Florida man who had lain critical-

matter of hours it became nec-

donors were needed." A list of
the volunteers accompanied the
story, and it included students,
local citizens, citizens of nearby
towns-both men and women-
who displayed a heart-warming
enthusiasm in their desire to
help the man who lay ill.

Exchange Midst Be Success
Now that the long-sought-fot' Student Book Exchange
is finally a reality, students should do their utmost to
make it a sensational success. It operates with great
fervor during past years, but passed into oblivion like so
many other worthwhile pre-war projects.
The Book Exchange will be sponsored by student gov-
ernment and operated by Alma Phi Omega, national ser-
vice fraternity. It will restrict itself to a maximum of
ten per cent total profit over cost and operating expenses,
while book stores feels obliged in many cases to take up to
fifty per cent profit.
All students have to do is to turn their used books over
to the Exchange to make it the hoped for success. Total
savings to the student body can be enormous. Let's keep
our eyes on its record. There is every reason why this
project, supported by all factions and groups in the re-
cent campus election, can be something worthy of telling
other colleges about.
Alligator Swan Song
The Alligator goes to press today for the last time this
semester, and we want to take this opportunity to thank
the student body for the privilege of serving them during
th e year.
The present staff took over the reins at a time when
the University was just e., I i;- from a war-time economy
and built the paper from a four-page tabloid to a six-page
regular 8-column paper before being struck by the recent
paper shortage. We have made mistakes but in our pri-
mary objective we believe that we have succeeded-that
is to increase the paper to its pre-war size and appearance.
We have attempted to bridge the gap from a war-time
basis to a peace-time basis and build up a paper of enough
merit to launch the first real peace-time paper on slid
ground.1 We woulId like. to wish Morty Freedman, Ted

Catcher Bennie Suarez came
home from Alabama recently with
a big broad grin on his ample fen-
tures. Bennie was one of the
players who made up the Florida
nine that salit a two game series
with the Auburn Tigers in a
Southeastern Conference fraca.
An why was he smiling so ?
According to Bennie there are
lots of people up at Auburn-
men, women, boys, girls, and
dags-and virtually all paused
on meeting everyone in streets
and buildings to say "Hello" or
"Hi" or "Hey" or words to the
This is not a mere courtesy to
Florida players. Except when
in uniform no one would have
known they were visitors. This
was the practice for everyone, for
young and old, to toss a friendly
greeting at everyone else they en-
countered during the day, whether
a friend or a. complete stranger.
That is an old and honored
lra.ition at Auburn. Bennie
said it made a fellow feel won-
derful to meet all those friend-
ly "Hellos,." But it is a tradi-
tion that should not come as
news to Florida men. For at
this University it is almost as
old as it is at Auburn.
Sad to say, the spirit of that
greeting has died down, like many
Winning two straight volleyball
games, ihe Presbyterian Student
House defeated the Methodists
from the Wesley Foundation by
scores of 21-10 and 21-17, in win-
ning the church league champion-
The Methodists had reached the
finals by squeezing two out of
three gaines from the Baptists,
whereas the Presbyterians went
to the climax round because of a
forfeit by the Episcopalians. The
preliminary games were staged
last Friday afternoon; the finals
being played that night.
Gaining a quick 1.4-3 lead in
the first game of the finals, the
Presbflteerians had to hold on
for dear life as the methodists
knotted the count at 16-all.
From there on, however, numer-
ols errors byh the Methodists
proved to be the deciding factor
as the Presbyterians went on to
The second game was nip and
tuck until the count reached 12-
all. From that point on the Pres-
byterians took a 20-12 advantage
which was too great a margin for
the Foundation boys to overcomnie.
The final score in this game was
The afternoon contest
started out as what appeared to
be a runaway when the Baptists
swept the first game front the
Methodists 21-10; however, the
Methodists swept the next two
games in quick order by scores of
21-15 and 21-14. The outcome of
the final game was never in doubt
as the Methodists steadily added
to an early lead.
These games climaxed the vol-
leyball season for the church lea-
gue which was organized inde-
pendently by the different student
houses. The Methodists and Pres-
byterians had steadily built up
a raging rivalry which reached
its peak in the championship
game. The final contest left the
Presbyterians ahead of the Meth-
odists 3-1. The Baptists. though
steadily improving, lost three
games to the Methodists.
The Church League has com-
pleted all sports activities for the
present semester. It is planned
that the league continue during

rangerenls have been made yet.

TRAVELERS INN has been in operation a little over two months.
Many of you are already familiar with its convenience to the Uni-
versity, its friendly atmosphere, and its reasonable rates.
To acquaint more of you with these facts, the following offer is'
1. The first student's parents to stop with us from each fraternity
will be our guests the first night (if they stay only one night there
will be no charge).
2. The above offer will be extended to the parents of the first five
:, non-fraternity students who stop with us.
3. It also applies to the first person sent to us by any department
head at the University.
CONDITION: The only requirement to qualify for the above is
that this ad be mentioned at the time reservation is made or when
registering. For instance, if your parents stop with us but do not
mention the ad, we will assume that you did not bother to tell them
about it and the "free" night will be reserved for someone whose
son was interested enough to mail the ad home.
NOTE: In the event we have no vacancies, we reserve the right
to issue a due bill that will be good at some future date, or to se-
cure a room elsewhere at our expense.

were plenty of surplus Homes at
Florida's air base and defense

them were being taken out of

We are reminded about the
tale of the Marine who took
part in World War I. There was
a lot of good-natured rivalry
among the various branches of
the service and the Marines
were often in the spotlight.
Due, perhaps, to the praise
they received from the press the
Marines were often greeted with
the quip: "Who won the war?"
A lone Marine walked into a
veterans' meeting in his home
town and wa s immediately
greeted by the question just
When the noisy banter which
had greeted this sally had sub-
sided, the Leatherneck asked
quite casually: "What war?"
Then noting the surprised ex-
pression on the faces of his au-
dience, he added: "You know we

or six wars since you guys

Florida are Georgia Tech, North
Carolina State, Uuniversity of

.At the same time, Turner,

to thank the Governor, the cabinet
and University officials for their
