Last Year Dogs -
This Year Ants
Last year it was dogs this
year it's ants. To say that the
campus is crawling with them is
an understatement. The fact
re-rains that Sll(d Hall, arch-
ways and all, is four feet away
from its site of last June-and
is losing ground steadily.
Old records show that in days
gone by dogs outnumbered stu-
dents 3 to 1. There was one ca-
nine that dug holes feverishly
n'l over the campus. No more.
The holes are full of ants. Late
dispatches, reveal that they are
seizing the cafeteria tales and
ho!dir,j fast, have eaten all the
chemicals in the Chem building
and are starting on the unmen-
tionables hanging outside Mur-
phree Hall. Men we ain't

that Florida would be able to

What's In A Name ?
In the nation today there is a continu-
ing tendency among persons of one belief
or political viewpoint to characterize
those persons with views which are dia-
metrically opposed to their own, as "radi-
cals, "reactionaries," "liebrals," "con-
servatives," and even "communists" and
For instance, if a citizen advocates,
suggests or even thinks along lines of
friendlier relations with Russia as a
move towards real world peace, he is,
be he a cabinet member or University
student, invariably greeted with the
e.p it a p h of "Communists," "Red,"
"Pink," or "Radical." His sincerity or
ultimate goal does not matter, and the
pity of it all is, that those meaningless
phrases are cast at him not only by the
uneducated, but by men such as news-
paper editors and college professors.
On the other hand, should a person
advocate harsher treatment of Russia, or
anti-strike legislation, or the end of the
OPA, there are still other elements in the
nation, quick to fling charges of "Fac-
ist!" or "Reactionary," or "Ultra-Con-
servative," at him.
We hold that it is absolutely impos-
sible to type a man as a radical, reaction-
ary, conservative or liberal, and unless
a person is a member of the Communist
Party, the now-extinct Facist and Nazi
Parties, or the Socialist Party-he cannot
be truly identified as benig a Communist,
Facist, Facist, Nazi or Socialist.
To illustrate this point we might make
a hypothetical comparison. Assuming
that it could be definitely established
that (1) former Senator White is a "re-
actionary," (2) Senator Tan is a "con-
servative," (3) Senator Pink is a "liber-
al," and (4) Senator Red is a "radical,"
(and we repeat these are purely hy-
pothetical aesignations) let's see just
how these gentlemen might look upon
Senator White, the "reactionary," sin-
ce most Americans consider themselves
"middle-of-the-roaders," might consider
Senator Tan, who is our "conservative,"
as being "too liberal;" he might easily
consider our "liebral" Senator Fink as a
"reactionary," and "Communist" might
be his only designation for the "radical"
Senator Led. 'his situation of course
might be reversed with the so-called
radicall" thinking of the "liberal" as be-
ing too "conservative" and the "conserva-
tive" as being "reactionary."
These classifications exist only in the
minds of individuals, there is no infalli-
bale method of measuring a mans think-
ing along political or any other lines.
There is no norm, there is no stereotype
in political thought.
Many of us who are veterans and who
return to college life after having travel-
led in all parts of the globe, who feel
strongly the need for international co-
operation, may be tempted to classify
certain faculty members who are not so
strongly in favor of our views as "reac-
tionaries' or "conservatives." Some of us
may refer to an even smaller group of
faculty members and students as "radi-
cals" or even "Communists."
It is this eagerness to slap labels upon
those who have the courage' to voice their
personal views, it is this antagonistic de-
fense of one's own viewpoint by name-
calling that must be avoided if we are to
live at peace among our fellow men.

IT AIN'T A 'STETSON BUB-BUT ITS A HAT Freshman,
you selected your Fall chapeau? For those who have not made ze
gran selection as yet, let me suggest that you see what the University
has to offer in the line of sexy headgear-
Especially recommended for Freshman is a bright orange
number with figures of a rather ickey shade of blue on the
front. This correspondent would hesitate to lend his say-so
to such a garish piece if it were not so well established tradi-
tion hereabout the c.mriipus-so well established in fact that not
to wear it-is to brand oneself an upperclassman--hewin fobid!
The above mentioned figures probably symbolize something, but
since they are so seldom seen they are of trivial importance. The
bill of the fez is vestigial and is turned up so that it hides the
figures- Freshman usually nrint "rat" and their father's last name
on the exposed side of the bill.
This type of cap has no practical value in warm weather. It
does not keep the sun out of ones eyes and it will not even hold
beer. But its a tradition-one of our finest-so come rain or shine
IMPORTED FROM ENGLAND LTD -- One of the recent great
movies to leave the little sile across the sea is George Bernard Shaw's
immoral piece-"Ceaser and Cleopatra." To glance at the advertis-
ing that has been plaguing the newspapers and slick covered mags
one would think that sex is here to stay but alas and clap trap the
picture just doesn't add up to good entertainment.
GI's would call it a training film-because it follows a set
pattern of thinking. Cleo doesn't even have a siezure with
Ceaser and doesn't give a charge on the local barge with Cas-
sius! One would expect the Egyptians to do it-you know the
merry chase around the Pyramids but no-just ranting and
raving about the injustices of something or another, a battle or
two and quickie of Vivian Leigh taking a well needed path.

Gator Students Protests
Price Of Grid Tickets
Sept. 20, 1946
The Florida Alligator:
If it is at all possible I would like to
get the following short letter published
in the first edition of the Gator on the
editorial page. Thank you very much.
As all of you Florida men know the
conditions at the University will be very
overtaxed. But what I want to know is
it necessary to pay $3.60 for a football
ticket in Jax and not even have as much
as a reserved seat.
Your general fees pay for you a seat
at all of the football games both at home
and away. Naturally you must ,buy
your date a ticket. In the.past years all
tickets for students have been-reserved
in the student section.
This year when we need the r_6erved
more than ever they do not have them.
I imagine that the same amount of space
is allowed to te students as was last'year
but this year the enrollment'is, at least
six times as great.
Another thing I'll bet that there are at
least a few hundred students tickets
issued than the-re is a place for them to
sit. Taking for granted that they do or
have allowed more spade for -the students.
Consequently you and your.date will be
forced to bring your breakfast to, the
game in order to get a place-to sit.
I think something should be done,
about it because the great majority of
the rest of the seats are reserved so why

Vet Wives Can't Afford-
Price On $90 Per Month
Sept. 19, 1946
Editor The Alligator:
In the past months we have noticed a
steady rise of food and clothing prices,
but we still thought we could manage to
fit'the football games into the budget--
until we purchased tickets yesterday for
the Florida-Mississippi game.
It is our recollection that last 'year
the student date tickets cost about $1.50
and that these tickets were reserved in
the student section. This year the tickets
sell for $3.60 and are not reserved except
that the wives and dates are still allowed
to sit in the. student sectiohi.
We do not know for whiat-'purpose
the ticket money is used,/but .we imagine
that it covers .the t'a selling ex-peises of
the football team and all other incidental
expenses. Howevre, it would seem that
if the prices of tickets were changed this
year, they would be reduced since the.
student body is so'much larger and the
"take" would be so much greater.
As any veteran student on this campus,
or any other, can testify, it is impossible.
to live. on the Government allotted $65
or $90 a month. Even a married veteran
whose wife is working finds it very dif-
ficult to struggle along in this town where
the rents and all prices are sky-high.
Since the student body is composed of
such a large percentage of veterans, it
appears to us that this fact would war-
rant consideration on by those who set
the Drices on any student activity.
Our husbands feels rather fortunate
these days, because their wives aren't
such football fiends that they insist on
seeing every game this season at a cost
to each family of approximately $20.
The men will see the games, but we'll
sirhome and knit and wish someone had

Gatbr Student Tells Of Arab-Jewish Situation In Palestine;
Condemns British And Tells Concentration Camp Experiences
By Stanley Tatelman
1Herman Greenbaum, a
stftdent veteran, studying
citrus culture in the Univer-
sity's Agriculture school, is
well able to tell our country
the true conditions in Pales-
'Mr. Greenbaum was over-
sas only two months with
the First Army when he was
wounded. Because he was a
German-Jewish refugee, his supe-
rior officers would not order him
to join a detail to the front where
capture would -be disastrous. He
volunteered, however, and spent 14
days in the front lines in bayonet
combat with his hated enemies.
Hatred of the Nazis was instilled
-in him over 15 years ago in Ger-
many where he and his father had
a flourishing men's apparel busi-
ness. One day in May of 1933,
during the lunch hour, he and his
father, for no apparent reason,
were seized by German soldiers
and driven through the city as or-
dinary criminals. They were among
the first five Jews who were ar-
rested because they were two of
the wealthy merchants.
Two weeks of beatings,
threats, mental anxieties and
convenient means for them to
eomit suicide, were endured by
the -en whose only offense was
being a Jew. During five, hor-
rible weeks in that concentra-
tion camp Greenbaum saw a
childhood friend killed by con-
tinued beatings by the Nazis,
and was forced by armed guards
to beat his own father a
torture almost unbearable.
After they were released they
were. warned by friends not to
trust the Germans and to try to
leave the country. After medical d
attention was administered the 1

Herman Greenbaum traveled to r
Palestine, where he met his wife. ',
They were married in Palestine, h
anid a child was born there in 1935. p
The couple and their son came to t
America in 1939, and he obtained
his American citizenship in 1942. t
That same year he was draft- i
ed into the United'States Army. e
Because of his heavy accent and t
German birthplace,. Mr. Green- i
baum was for a time under sus- t
picion by American officers.
While on a special detail he was f
put to the test. Put in a fox- t
hole where lie could hear the s
Germans talking not many feet
away, he was under orders not
to leave that position. If this
man was a German spy, surely 1
lhe woujd contact the enemy by
crawling to their lines during
the night and reveal American
gun positions, etc. To prevent
this small mines had been
planted around the foxhole area
without his knowledge.
For three nights he was as-
signed to that position and for
three nights he obeyed his supe-
rior .officers. Thus he proved his
loyalty. He was congratulated by .
his commanding officer, a briga-
dier general, and won the admira-

Mr. Greenbaum said the British
