"We Are The Boys ..."
Considering that this region is sup-
posedly known for "Southern hospitality,"
the raucous, rowdy, bottle-throwing and
cursing mob which N viewed last week's
Florida-Villanova game, was a disgrace
not only to the University of Florida, but.
to the South as v,-wel.
Granted, the otiiclting of the game
was bad; granted, we expected to win and
lost-still there was no excuse under the
sun for the exhibition which took
For th se not present, here in a nut-
shell, is what did take place:
(1) Certain Flo.i.a students shouted.;,
derogatory remarks intended for the ears:
of the Villanova players who were seA6dd:
directly in front of the Florida cheering
(2) Angry at certain decisions of the--
officials, someone in the cheering section
threw a bottle at the referee, who at the
moment was standing on the sideline
checking the. line marker. Not only did the
bottle miss the official's head by a few
inches, but also missed two Florida stu-
dents, who were assisting the official,
and who could have been injured by the
(3) Aroused students, resembling a
mob, begati to throw bottle caps, paper
wads and other objects at the Villanova
players as well as coach. These men, a
visiting team, were forced to wear their
helmets while sitting on the bench.
No one can excuse the throwing of
.......things.at a game official, and no one can
excuse the low-grade of sportsmanship
shown by those who threw things and
used foul language with respect to a visit-
ing team which travelled some 1400 miles
to play a game on Florida Field.
As one member of the Gator football
squad said after the game last week, "The
Villanova players won't hold what hap-
pened against the Florida football squad,
but they'll certainly have a low opinion
of the University."
Pre-war Florida traditions are in dire
need of revival on this campus.
No Longer A Dream
With the opening of the Coop(d'ative
Grocery today there comes to the campus
a physical testimonial of what students
can do by themselves.
To Ben Mayberry, chairman of the Co-
Op's Board of Dilectors, and guiding
light of the venture, congratulations are.
due. The task which Mayberry and his
board members undertook, seemed on the
surface, an impossibility. With the open-
ing of the store today, the dreams of
these men become a reality.
'Fred Turner, board member and origi-
nator of the committee which was ap-
pointed under his administration as Sum-
me-r Session president of the student
body, is also due credit. It was Turner's
vision and work plus Mayberry's organi-
zational ability, plus the interest of the
Cooperative's members which caused the
store to open today.

"Hot Garters" just phoned and said that she
would be glad to be my Florida-North Carolina

little late in arriving because of previous commit-
ments at Fort Bragg, Jacksonville Navy Base and

fect and now we are impatiently awaiting for
the next Florida Players' presentation.
PAULETTE POLLUTES THE SCREEN: Yep,
here comes that wench with the super SA, the
chambermaid that doesn't give a darn about
waxing the floors-Paulette Goddard. She is sup-
ported by an excellent cast featuring just about
the ugliest woman this side of lower Lower Slob-
bovia--Irene Pyan. She makes the most of her
negative charms with the village idiot. This pic-
ture is sheer entertainment from beginning to end.
