The campus political kettle is boiling
again-and from the looks of things both
parties still leave much to be desired in
the way of anything resembling propor-
Both are overloaded with fraternity
candidates on a campus which is com-
prised roughly of 25% of the student
body belonging to fraternities and 757%
of the students independent. Both are
still offering nominations as political
payoffs. Both are still employing the old
"smoke-filled room" methods of nominat-
ing, the method by which a handful of
men select the candidates to be offered
to a student body of 6.,300.
The Dixie Party's attempt at conduct-
ing a Freshman primary may have been
in good faith, but there is much room
for question in their methods. For in-
stance, why were primary ballot boxes
emptied each night, if not to tally the
ballots and ascertain whether or not the
"right" candidate was leading? Why did
the candidates for President and Vice-
President of the Freshman class who led
in the primary balloting, have what were
obviously prepared speeches, at the time
of the primary run-off ?
Why were the three leading candidat-
es for Freshman class Secretary-Treasur-
er discarded at the run-off meeting and
why did three entirely different men vie
for the nomination from the floor? How
can the Dixie primary be called valid
when only a handful of men were present
at the primary run-off voting? What
prompte-d some of those present to charge
party leaders with attempting to "rail-
road" candidates into the nomination?
And above all, why was the counting of
the primary ballots themselves not open
to the public?
The Dixie Party, in spite of the hap-
hazard manner in which the primary
was conducted, has offered something
new to the campus. Such a plan could
work to the benefit of the student if each
party had registration books, if primaries
were conducted under the sponsorship of
the Honor Court, and if any run-off pri-
mary was supervised by the Court.
If this came to pass it would not be
possible for any one "pressure" group to
"railroad" a man into a nomination.
Hurricane Credit Due
Credit should go where is due, and
this week high praise is due a small
group of men who by competent and ef-
ficient organization, prepared for what
might have been a disastrous hurricane,
but which actually turned out a dud.
First in line is Harold C. Riker, direc-
tor of housing, who supervised evacu-
ation of the Alachua County Air Base
students as well as some Flavet Village
residents. Carl Opp, assistant to Riker,
also should be commended for efficient-
ly providing for campus accommodations
for the Air Base men upon arrival here
last Monday night.

GA TOR PARTY
"...COVERS DIXIE LIKE THE DEW
In keeping with the GATOR PARTY'S policy of representing all campus groups, the GATOR PARTY
has selected a slate that unquestionably is TRULY REPRESENTATIVE. Our slate is composed of stu-
dents from all of the colleges, non-frat and frat me., vets and non-vets, and married students.
The GATOR PARTY'S promises are not idle gestures but are carried out to the fullest extent. Our
promise of PROGRESSIVE ACTION in the summer election, in which we carried 17 out of 20 offices,
was followed by action on housing vet and non-vet, married and single students. Amendments to
the Constitution were put before the student body, and a. remarkable volume of work was accomplish-
ed by the Executive Council.
The GATOR PARTY now proudly presents to you for your approval the list of candidates we feel are
truly your representatives.
