'Griping is an old American tradition,
and griping is excusable if the griper is
willing to aid in correcting whatever it
is he is griping about.
In the case of the University of Flor-
ida, we've been griping about our need
for new classroom buildings, more perm-
anent dormitories, higher pay for our in-
structors and better recreational facili-
ties. All are legitimate glIpes concerning
conditions which must be remedied.
Now, in the between-s, mester interim,
every Florida student has a, golden op-
portunity to do something about his grip-
ing. That opportunity consists of griping
to bigger audiences.
Florida Blue Key, leadership fratern-
ity of the campus, under the capable di-
rection of President P a,u 1 Rogers,
has scheduled various interested students
from every part of the state, for speeches
to be delivered in the civic clubs and or-
ganizations in their home town during
their stay at home between semester.
Those who have signed for the speak-
ing engagements will give talks to key
men in their communities describing the
needs of an expanding State University.
They will amplify our gripes in order
that the civic leaders they address may
support our requests when the Legisla-
ture meets in April.
Some of us just aren't cut out for pub-
lic speaking-but that does not mean
that we can't aid in the Florida Blue Key
campaign. It is the duty of each of us, for
the sake ,of building a greater Univer-
sity of Florida, to speak of our needs

PERTINENT QUESTION: Does Jane Russell
wear gay deceivers ?
PERTINENT ANSWER: We've circumvented
the campus from Sledd to Fletcher to find vol-
unteers to go to California, all expenses paid,
but no luck. I guess we'll never know.
The Dairy Farmers' Association of Associations
of Curd County recently voted Jane Russell as
their favorite barnyard pinup. We certainly agree
-there's a gal who has her points. This Sunday
the Florida presents Jane Russell, the Roberta of
the cinema (remember Fig Leaf Fanny?), star of
"Young Widow." This picture has a vile plot,
odorous acting, but Jane saves the day by just
appearing now and then, displaying her enormous
talents that have endeared her to every 4-H girl's
brother in the corn belt. National advertising has
exploited Janie as "The World's Most Exciting
Brunette." Gad, what an understatement!
MISSION WITH VLMASON or BRASSIERES
TO BRAINS IN ONE JUMP: "The Seventh
Veil," which opens in the Florida Tuesday, is a.
compelling and exciting film probing the mind
of a girl musician, whose romance-frustrated
life leads to attempted suicide. "The seventh veil
is her psychiatrist's term for the final conceal-

torn away during the treatment of her neu-
This pie is remarkable for its suspense, rich in
drama and endowed with magnificent perform-
ances. Intelligently and superbly presented, it is
a milestone in the making of finer entertainment.
This picture will no doubt create wide comment
here on the campus. Particularly noteworthy is
the performance of James Mason, a young, embit-
tered bachelor, suddenly confronted with the
guardianship of a distantly-related orphan girl.
Ann Todd is the short-skirted school girl,
fearful of Mason, yet developing under his in-
struction into a concert 'pianist of great fame.
During girlhood Miss Todd is beaten across the
knuckles for a school infraction, and is unable
to pass a music examination. Later Mason hits
her hands unmerc;fully with his cane when she
tries to rebel against his tyrannic influence-
