Likely By Feb.
By J. Kirk Frazier
Many students have been
wondering about the fate of the
proposed student co-op laundry.
The Alliga.tor this week ques-
tioned Student Bdly President
Harry Parham on the subject.
Prhiapm said that "no definite
steps have been taken thus far
though I am planning to ap-
point a committee Thursday
night to investigate the possibili-
ties and formulate a definite
Qio.rihd as to when the stu-
dents could actually get their
lamudry and dry cleaning done
reasonably by a student owned
and operated establishment, Par-
ham answered, "if the appoint-
pd committee lives up to my ex-
pectations, we should see some
evidence by February."
Has Free Show
No midnight movie will be
shown next Saturday, November
Z, since this is an open date for
the Florida Gators. The picture
tomorrow night will be fhie Re-

the students each night, the con-
ference voted to turn over the
tickets to the Friday night dance
to the non-fraternity students. A
great deal of credit is due Ken
Musgrave, Fall Frolics chairman,
and Bill Byrd secretary of social
affairs, for their effort in making
this solution possible."
Fall Frolics ducats will sell. as
Friday night dance: $2 plus tax,
stag or drag.
Band concert: $1 plus tax, stag
Fraternity members must buy
block tickets which include the
concert and Saturday night dance,
and which will sell for $3.
Non-fraternity tickets will go on
sale some time next week, accord-
ing to IFC officials, and will be
sold until three weeks before Frol-
ics. Tickets will be sold in the
Florida Union with Bill Byrd in
charge of sales. Approximately
1600 tickets will be available for
the Friday night dance, with the
same number being available to
fraternity men for the Saturday
Brown Top Band
IFC members stressed that in
Les Brown they have obtained
what is probably the No. I band
in the nation. Brown, according
to booking agents, is drawing
crowds equalled only by those
turning out for Harry James. He
is undisputed tops as the "top re-
cording band" in the nation, ac-
cording to recent band polls.
In addition to Pat Flaherty, his
beautiful young vocalist who re- .
cently replaced Doris Day, Brown
features Butch Stone and Jack
Haskell as male vocalists, Jimmy
Zito at the trumpet and Dick
Shanahan at the drums.
Played "Big Four"
Brown's combine is one of the
few in the country which have
managed to play in the nation's
top four band showplaces in a
Single year. He has been featured
recently at the Palladium in iol-
lywood and played earlier in the
year at the Hotel Astor Roof in
New York City, the Blackhawk
Cafe in Chicago and the Meadow-
brook at Cedar Grove, N. J.
Handling Frolics for the IFC
will. be Ken Musgrave, recently ap-
pointed Frolics chairman by Shea-
rouse. Subcommittees under Mus-
grave are: -Housing committee, Ed
Grafton, chairman; general ar-
rangements, Bill Turnbull, chair-
man, and program committee,
Walter Carpenter, chairman.

At Monday's meeting, of the Ga-
tor Vets, Senator Spessard L.
Holland installed the newly-elected
officers for this year. Those who
took office were: Fred Turner,
commander; Ernest Page, vice
commander; Lester Varn, adju-
tant; Wilson Caffee, finance offi-
cer; James C. Richardson, chap-
Following the installation, Sen.
Holland delivered an address to a
combined meeting of the Gator
Vets and. the John Marshall Bar
Association. The senator an-
nounce.d that a survey has shown
that during the past fifteen years
the student body has established
an average scholastic grade of 2,
whereas vets in the past year and
a half have surpassed this mark in
attempting an average of 2.39.
lHe also made issue of the fact
that, although the average amount
of failures for the student body
as a whole has been 10 percent,
veterans ha- e held their failures to
Great Pecentage Veterans
One of the most gratifying fa-lfs
to the senator was that ove; ',5
percent of the student body Aws|
comprised of veterans. He inter-I
preted this as being a good sign
that veterans were preparing
themselves for an important and
effective place in American life.
In addition to Senator Holland,
the following distinguished guests
were present: President Tigert,
Dean Beaty, Dean Trusler. Dean
Little, Mr. Reed of the Veteransi
Administration, Bill Durden of the
John Marshall Bar Association,
and Harold Smith, past commaid-
er of the Gator Vets.

CELEBRATING 429 YEARS OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY
Since October 31, 15-17, when Dr. Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the Castle Church at Wittenberg
the Protestant Churches of Christ have stood for the freedom of their peoples to hold the following beliefs:
1. HOLY SCRIPTURE IS SUPERIOR TO TRADITION.
2. SALVATION FIS BY GRACE, AND NOT BY WORKS.
3. AN INDIVIDUAL'S APPROACH, THROUGH CHRIST, TO GOD, PERSONALLY.
Countless martyrs have proclaimed these beliefs; we are born free and unafraid to claim them for our own.

Fighting From The Heart
Last Saturday's Homecoming football
game will not soon be forgotten by the
Gator students, alumni and rooters who
witnessed it- nor by the University of
The worst thing that can be said of
any group participating in a contest is
that they did not try, and conversey, the
best that can be said is that the group or
team fought with every ounce of energy.
Florida's "Fighting Gators" fought their
hardest last week, amid the cheers and
plaudits of over 21,000 spectators. There,
are few who turned away from Florida
Field on Saturday who were not possess-
ed with a burning pride in their Univer-
sity and team.
Against superior odds a freshman
Gator squad matched their adversaries,
r'un for run, kick for kick and pass for
pass under a burning sun. Griffin never
ran better, Gilmartin never punted better,
Vaccarro never blocked better, and a
greatly improved Florida line never hit
Many students were new to the cheers
offered by the Gator cheer-leaders, but
they didn't need the words, they had the
spirit-and they knew at last that they
had a real team.
4 There's an old sports proverb which
says, "It's not who's won or lost, it's
how you've played the game"-our boys
fought their hearts out.
More Seats For Students
The "date-ticket" situation has appar-
ently been settled with a reduction in
price for the N. C. State game, the Vil-
lanova game, and the Auburn game, and
as far as that aspect of the football
sit'; ,-tien goes, all is well.
Last week at the University's Home-
coming game, a game which is important
above all others from the point of view
of student participation, hundreds and
possibly thousands of Florida students
were sitting in the aisles. (if they were
the luckier ones) and standing above the
top row of the bleachers. Many of those
who did have seats were as far down as
the 20 yard line.
The athletic Council must realize that
student participation in spectator sports
is essential for the success of Florida
teams. If the only excuse for lack of
seating is that more. reserved seats must
be sold in order that the Athletic Depart-
ment's revenue be boosted, then we sug-
gest that the State be. asked to bear the
full brunt of the expenses for athletic
We would strongly suggset that ac-
tion be taken by the Executive Council
and the Athletic ,Departmeht to insure
that less seats are sold to outsiders and
SB.oRe .are allocated, to the -University's

STORIES WE LIKE TO READ THE
LINES BETWEEN-Run and get a copy of
that Best-Seller "Miss Ranskill Comes Home"
by Barbara Bauer. The novel concerns a
Miss Ranskill, a gently reared English spinis-
ter who falls overboard while on a cruise
in 1938. She finds refuge on an island and
finds a marooned ship's carpenter as her only
companion ('que oportunidad-) For four
years the two-lived there and then the carp-
enter died and Miss Ranskill embarked on
the boat which they had built.
After her rescue by a ship in a convoy Miss
Ranskill was set down in England at war, an
England she had never known. There follows the
account of her disillusionment and her readjust-
ment. I found this not-at-all usual desert island
novel a. gem of a tale. It is written with deft-
ness and restraint. There are necessary improb-
abilities, but the reader certainly will no,t take
sides with the dull and incredulous to whom Miss
Ranskill has such difficulty explaining her
The book is probing and witty and at the same
time gentle and humane. It makes us feel anew
in ,the thought of how much nicer it would be
to live a sweeter, honester, less trivial life in a
sweeter, honester less trivial world. If you can't
find it in hte University Library ,try Miss Terry's

Your editorial captioned "Polit-
ical Smoke" which appeared in the
October issue of the All'gator left
what we deem as an erroneous
impression of the student body in
regards to the Gator Party's slate.
You state that both parties were
overloaded with fraternity men.
You based your opinion on a pro-
portional basis, which is very un-
fair if the true facts are bared.
This party desires to make its
slate representative of the student
body in every respect but certain
difficulties are very often encoun-
tered. Interest in student govern-
ment is not what it should be on
this campus because of the failure
of students to familiarize them--
selves with.its functions.

each man you might discover a few
of your comments in this editorial
grossly unjust. In place of-writ ng
critical editorials, we suggest that
you write editorials informing the
students of the tremendous volume
of work and responsibility involv-
ed in student government and of
the importance to each student. In
this way we feel that you can use
space, paid for by the students
themselves, to inform them of the
benefits they can derive individu-
ally and as a whole from student
Florida first and always.
Gator Party Chairman
Editor-in-Chief, The Florida Alli-
Enclosed herewith is a copy of
letter written to Dean of Students
R. C. Beatty, by the undersigned
as spokesman for the Dixie Party.
It is my request that you publish
this ii. 'he next edition of the Al-
ligator. It is also for your per-
Chairman, Dixie Party.
Dean R. C. Beaty, Dean of St,-.
dents, University of Florida,
On liehalf of the Dixie Party, we
wish to register a protest in re-
gard to the partisanship being
shown by the editor of the Alliga-
.tor, Morty Freedmari.
The Alligator, being a student
newspaper, funds for which are
derived from every student on the
campus, regardless of party affil-
iation, should be completely non-
partisan in character.
The editor-in-chief, Morty Freed-
man, ex-publicity director for the
Gator Party, has constantly shown
his favoritism for the Gator Par-
ty by editorials, makeup of paper
and general publicity.
On editorials we refer specifical-
ly to the one in the last edition
(Oct. 11, 1946) entitled "Political
Smoke," but, in fact, a one-sided
attack on the Dixie Party and the
leaders therein. It was composed
of falsehoods, half-truths and in-
sinuations. Such an insidious,
treacherous violation of his prom-
ises to the Board of Student Pub-
lications, upon seeking the editor-
ship, to refrain from al partisan-
ship in political af-irs of the stu-
dent body, should no' '-o inpun-
In his makeup of the paper and
general publicity, Editor-in-Chief
Freedman has been consistently
headlining probable candidates for
student offices from the Gator
Party without reason.
Again we repeat: the money for
his salary comes from Dixie Party
students as well as Gator Party
students. Why should the mem-
bers of the Dixie Party be forced
to pay someone to make unwar-
ranted and prejudiced attacks
upon themselves ?
Chairman, Dixie Party.
A. MAX BREWER,
Vice Chairman, Dixie
EDITOR'S NOTE: The letter
above was sent to Dean Beaty, al-
though the signers knew that the
Dean had no jurisdiction over stu-
dent publications. Dean Beaty
referred it to the Board of Stu-
dent Publications which held a
meeting at which the two
above made charges against this
writer attempting to show him
partial, and limit his freedom in
writing editorials. This writer
charged the politicians with a de-

board's decision "no intentional
partiality" whatsoever on the part
of this writer. No. action was tak-
