Frats Decide A.Ist
The Inter-Fraternity Confereice will not co-sponsor
Military Ball this March with the Advanced Military Stu-
dents, it was decided recently at a joint meeting of the
IFt and Military Dept.
IFC rules -call for a two-third majority to make .an
agreement bindirg for all frater-
nities and the vbte, 12 to 9 in fa-
vor, was not a two-thirds vote.
Some Frats For Ball
The ,affirmative-voting frater-
rities, however, are in favor of
joining the ROTC students to put
through the big week-end, which
was an annual event in pre-war
years. Preliminary plans have
been made liy these fraternities
ard the POTC but it is stressed
by Vance Morgan, chairman of
the Military Ball committee, that
therq is nothing definite yet.
Lawrence Leading Choice
In these early plans the leading
choice for the band seems to be
Elliot Lawrence, a comparative
newcomer to the musical world.
Lawrence has risen fast in recent
months to play more college en-
gagements in the North than any
other band. Gere Krupa's band
has also been mentioned in the

The story of the Florida State

fostered the growth of the mus-

T. Van Hyming officially re-

on July 1, 1946, and was succeed-

Van Hyming foufid the Museum,
but he drafted, and through his
industrious efforts had passed by
the State Legislature a bill cre-

The first floor in the Florida
Museum is divided into 'the gener-
al office, a department of Florida
archaeology, and a department of
water transportation in Florida.
The general preparitory, where all
specimens are cleaned and restor-
ed is located in the rear of the
first floor, and is also used for
storage space. The department of
Florida archaeology has twelve
large cases filled with mound pot-
tery with mound pottery and
stone artifacts of the early indian
tribes of Florida. The pottery col-
lection is not excelled through-

In the cove above the habital
cases is an oil painting nearly 300
feet long by the noted Norwegian
artist, Nicolay Jacobs, depicting
the St. Johns River from its
source at Lake Helen Blazes, to
its mouth on the Atlantic. This
painting required years of
thought, research, and travel by
the staff of ,the Museum.
The entire third floor of the
Museum is devoted to the storage
of thousands of museum speci-
mens all catalogued and inventor-
ied. There are nearly a hundred
large storage cases overflowing
with specimens representing the
history of Florida, both natural
and civil from the earlies pre-
historic times to the most re-
cent times. This floor is usually
closed to visitors.

(Editor's Note: The following editor.
ial, because we believe it pertinent to cur.
rent events, is reprinted from yesterday's
Gainesville Sun. It was written by Mr.
William Pepper, Editor-In-Chief of The
Sun, who at one time ."covered" Gene
Tialmadge for Associated Press while Tal-
madge was Governor of Georgia.)
The- row in Georgia over'the governor-
ship, regard-less of the outcome, is noth-
ing more than a typical example of pol-
itics in that stale since "Old Gene" Tal-
madge first appeared in the Atlanta cap-
itol from his home dow, in Sugar Creek
in the southeastern part of. the state.
The editor of this paper (The Sun)
had occasion to watch such antics in op-
eration over a period on several months
while "covering" the capitol and the leg-
islature for one of the. big wire services.
The howling legislators; the vociferous
groups of politicians weaving through the _`
capitol corroidors, pounding on doors, and
engaging in fist fights, and all of the tur.-:;..
bulent events which took place yester--
day are but echoes .of the. methods of
the red-suspendered politician who has
not been so many weeks in his grave. We
personally witnessed many of the events
which took place in the years immediate-
ly preceding the war when the elder
Talmadge removed both the state treas-
urer and the comptroller general by the
force of the military -after they declined
to relinquish the offices from which he
had -ousted them by a sweep of the ex-
ecutive pen. Then it was that Talmadge
and his forces used blow torches to.get
into the vaults of the state treasury which
had been left locked by the duly-elected
-but forcibly-ejected-treasurer. We
witnessed the fu-'ore which surrounded
the efforts of Talmadge to run the state
government against the wishes of a re-
bellious legislature which had left him
without an appropriation bill. We saw
wild waving of hands as red suspenders
were snapped from the rostrums ol the
House and Senate and heard shouts and
invectives bantered about among the
chosen representatives of the Georgia
people. We witnessed the fight of Tom
Linder, Talmadge lieutenant, to. retain
the office of commissioner of agriculture
to which Talmadge's successor had ap-
pointed another man.
During these years of turmoil, we also
saw Herman Talmadge, son of old Gene
and present claimant of the governorship,
learning lessons of turbulent politics in
the midst of these upheavals. Fresh from
the University of Georgia, where he had
won high honors and dominated student
politics, Herman Talmadge was in the
midst of all of the squabbles by the side
of his father. He began as an impressari.o
working up the fever heat which marked
his father's political speeches on the
stump. Standing in one part of the crowd,
Herman would call out such remarks as'
"Take off your coat, Gene; let's see your
suspenders." He would then work his
way quietly to another section of the
same crowd and make a similar remark.
Soon the group would take up 'the hue
and cry and there would deire.lop shout-
ing, "amen-ing," whistling, stamping of
feet and something which approached
hysteria. We understand that in last

Letters To The Editor
Morty Freedman, Editor
The Florida Alligator
I am quite sure that the entire
student body was very well pleas-
ed with the recent issue of the
Orange Peel and are in full ac-
cord with its policy of humor for
the campus readers. Yet a large
number of men are also struck
with the thought that this cam-
pus does not have a literary mag-
azine. For a student body of this
size to have no organ to air its
more serious views, to present its
literary achievements, ard to pub-
1:sh the works of its poets and
essayists is almost unthinkable.
In the past the University of
Florida, probably owing to lim-
ited funds,-had only one magazine,
"The Florida Review" and this
tried to combine both the 'comic
and serious sides under one cover.
Obviously this is impossible, so
the campus voted to change the
name of this publication to the
"Orange Peel" and let it repre-
sert the lighter side of campus
Now a need again arises to have
a revival of the literary maga-
ine. Throughout the country, at
schools l i k e Harvard, 'Yale,
Princeton, Pennsylvania and in
fact, o every other college cam-
pus such a publication exists. The
charter of the-Orange Peel states,
"The Orange Peel shall serve as
am Ai*- for the publication of
stories, essays, poems and other
suitable materials of a literary
nature and moreover, it shall
serve as an outlet for the liter-
ary work of the University of
However, I feel that the Orange
Peel is doing well by their policy
cf humorous stories, humorous
poems, humorous essays, etc. It
is plain to see that two magazines
are. needed, and needed badly.
Such a publication would add
possibly forty cents to the student
fees of each person attending the
University of Florida. This is a
minute amount compared to the
value aed benefit that it would
give to each aand eVery student. At
present this matter is being
brought up before the 'executive
council. If any and all students in-
terested would write to the Alli-
gator and voice their feelings, it
will be a valuable step toward
bringing this vital publication to
the University of Florida.

Talks Of Pride
Mr. Morty Freedman,
Editor, The Alligator,
Florida Union, U.,of F.
Dear Mr. Freedman:
With mounting disgust I read
Kimmelts caluminous letter, and
decided to retaliate on behalf of
the Hon. Sen. Theodore G. Bilbo.
Particularly do I detest the North-
ern intrusion in Southern politics
involved here. Yes, Kimmel, the
South is indeed approaching a cri-
sis, but not over the Bilbo issue as
you so erroneously stated. That
crisis is gathering momentum rap-
idly through the migration of car-
petbaggers to Dixie, who have
taken it on themselves to reform
the South, reminiscent of post-
Civil War days when old Tad Ste-
ven's army of reformers came,
South to "enlighten" the Rebels
-and failed so miserably.
On what grounds do you con-
demn Bilbo? For his stand -on
white supremacy? How can you
condemn a man for his beliefs?
Here indeed is Fascism in its ug-
liest reality? Bilbo was elected
by the people of Mississippi, not
by the voters of New York or
Michigan, and he represents the
average Mississippiati's racial as-
pirations perfectly. If you have
noticed, it is not the voters of Mis-
sissippi that are trying to impeach
him, but rather the busybodies of
Northern politics that are trying
to- eject.him-from his elected- of-
fice. Incidentally; the North is
not the epitome of racial tolerance
by a long shot. Your record has
been marred repeatedly by riots
and racial demonstrations. So be-
fore you come down here and in-
still the essence of tolerance, why
don't you practice what you
Every true Southerner south of
the Mason-Dixon realizes the de-
crepit condition of the darkies in.
Dixie-but 'nearer our hearts,
Kimmel, are the multitudes of pov-
erty-stricken poor whites who
need our help so desperately.
Projects are, in their embryonic
stage for -relief to these destitute
whites, and if 20th Century eman-
caiptors line you can be kept at a
minimum, we will see a rejuvenat-
ed Southland in the not too distant
future. Then, and only then, can
we hope to better the negroes'
In your letter you made the in-
sipid statement that it would be
catastrophic for the other South-
ern senators to defend Bilbo. Here
you've encountered an eleinent
that is evidently alien to you-
Southern pride. We're about the
proudest. group of individuals in
America, Kimmel, and when any
one of our number is down, we
hasten to his aid, regardless of
So to avo'd further contamina-
tion from characters of your cali-'
bre, instead of an anti-Bilbo purge
here on the campus, I suggest we

(EDITOR'S NOTE. ..,In defense
of Kimmel, it niay'irl.terest- Mr.
Taylor to know thatr.e.fAulls.of the

over 50 percent of Florida's pop-

can be condemned for his beliefs,
particularly when such beliefs run
counter to the U. S. Constitution
as do. some of Bilbo's. To say
that Bilbo should not be con-
demned for his Fascistic beliefs is
to say that Hitler should not have
been condemned for similar be-
liefs. While agreeing with Mr.
Taylor that the South's problems
should be solved" by Southerners.

those taken by Mississippi's Bilbo '
are detrimental to '- the whole
