Have A Bang-Up Time
Bouncing back to the scenes of thefr
carefree collegiate days, over 20,000
grads and dads will pour into Gainesville
Beverages will undoubtedly flow like
vodka did in the streets of Moscow fol-
lowing V-E Day, and the old fraternity
quartets separated by the years wiil once
again reunite in ani attempt to give off
with something resembling melodious
And after it is over they will return to
their happy habitats extolling the vir-
tues of the "old Alma Mater."
But let us hope that when th-ey note
what we have gained in enrollment since
the war, they will also note the emer-
gency situation which has been thrust
When they laud the fact that their
;Alma Mater has almost 6,500. under-
graduates. let them realize that many of
that number are li,,ing an Army-like life,
with barracks as homes, with "chow
lines" and theatre lines to "sweat out,"
and with classes running from early, in
the. morning to late at night.
Certainly we have a great University
-as a matter of fact from our point of
view it's tlhe greatest in the country -
but let us not lose sight of the fact that
nothing is so great that it cannot stand
Our student government is tops in the
nation; our Ag school, Law School, and
other schools have high standing in the
nation! we have our own University radio
station and our own University farm;
but we could have more.
We could have more permanent dor-
mitories; we could have a University
printing plant, a medical college, a den-
tal college, a college of Journalism, and
a Fine Arts college. We could even
improve the University by eventually
having a coeducational institution here.
But all of these things are merely food
for thought the main thing is that
we're happy to have you home again,
grads and dads- we hope you have a
rip-roaring good time on this, Florida's
39th and greatest Homecoming.
To our alumni, student readers and
advertisers THE ALLIGATOR staff of-
fers its humble apologies.
We had originally planned a 16-page
full-size Homecoming edition, but due to
the national paper shortage and mari-
time strikes, which have caused many
metropolitan newspapers to eliminate ad-
vertising and cut new content drastically,
THE ALLIGATOR must come to you as
an eight-page tabloid.
To our readers we apologize for the
shortage in interesting news and featur-
es; to our advertisers, our apologies for
the: necessity of limiting advertising for
"Nothing like the .University to make
a man of you, Son."
By Les Gleichenhaus
It's now Bob "Monslez reaucaire" Hope
for the country's king of Comediana arrived
yesterday at the Florida Theatre in a satiric
interpretation of Tarkington's famous novel
of the same nanie in which Bob Hope co-
stars with dreamboat Joan Caulfield. Any
similarity between the author's original work,
once a vehicle for the late boudoir breaker
R. Valentino, ends with setting, locate and
-title of the pic. The vision of Hope in satin
knee breeches, powdered wig, and in the guise
of France's Jacque de Ripper is enough to
send the disciples of hilarious comedy scream-
ing and streaming to the box office.
Bob plays Monsewer Beaucaire, barber to Louis
XV He goes a little further than most scalp-
trimmers in making himself annoying, and ,the
king sentences him to the King size' Gillette, ze
chopping block. Then the palace promenades
and bedroom skirmishes begin with lovely Miss
Caulfield. She is cast as the object of Hope's
bumbling affections, who finally gives in to his
wooing, probably from sheer exhaustion, that is.

Rather than our being-"all over the place this week,
folks from all over are coming to us. With due deference

finest football team in all Florida history, but we are "building, for

game with Tulane.

Our answer is the fine American custom of doing things in several
shifts. Classes are attended in early and late shifts running from 7:30
a.m. to pass sundown. Local fraternities run dining rooms that must
accommodate as many as 150 persons. Considering the present meat
shortage, a prayer of plenty for ,the boys in the following shift is
usually included in saying Grace. Shifts are arranged in transferring
students to and from Army barracks serving as dorms and located
several miles from town.
Some students have shifted to ,the Florida State School for Women.
Our reports from these boys have been scant, chiefly through their
reluctance to leave their studies. 'They have made little contact
with the oustide world since their arrival at Tallahassee. However,
spasmodic reports indicate favorable progresses.
