By Sherwood Stokes
Announcing an alphabetical schedule for the State
Board of Health tuberculosis X-ray survey of the Univer-
sity community, Feb. 28-March 28, Dr. John J. Tigert,
president, today urged that all faculty, students, Univer-
sity employes and their wives a'd children participate.
Stating that for the survey to be a complete success, it
is important to have complete
coverage, Dr. Tigert pointed out
that it will not-be necessary to re-
move any clothing for the X-ray
and that results will be entirely 'l
confidential. The time involved
for each person will be negligble a
since the X-ray unit is capable of
making X-rays at the rate of 100 IlVI t
per hour.

This Co/legiate Wordd

The Providence College Cowl quoted a freshman who, when aske,
by a patronizing "family friend" how old he was, answered: "Well, my
latest personal survey shows my psychological age to be 22; my mor
al age, 10; my anatomical age, 17; and my physiological age, 16. 1
suppose, however, you refer to my chronological age which is 18.'
That silenced all further attempts at conversation.

Notice posted on the bulletin board in the Engineering Building a'
the University "of Texas: "For Sale, beautiful diamond engagement'
.ring, 46-point, with six side diamonds."
With a knowledge born of experience, some understanding stude.i
has added to the note: "My sumpathies, Chum."

A perplexed freshman stopped Mr. Grosshauser, who is in charg-
of housing in the dorms at the University of Colorado, and asked hin
where he was to stay. Mr. Grosshauser checked the list and sent tl-.,

"I'm sorry, sir, but rm afraid it's going to be impossible for mn
to get all of my stuff in that room-it's too crowded."

The Florida Party Enters
This week saw the advent of a new campus political
party known as the. Florida Party.
Scorned, and termed "idealistic" by the two older par-
ties, the Florida Party will have tough sledding unless
there is a heavy vote in the coming spring elections on
campus. Florida Party men are counting strongly on a
heavy vote being cast i i the elections, while Dixie anc
Gator men are counting e equally as strong on there not be-
ing a heavy vote on the basis of past student disinterest ir
campus politics and student government.
As long ago ;:' last sum mer we warned that students
would not stand for too lo.g a time, for the corrupt and
unfair practices of the tv,. campus political parties there
in existence. We warned '.Ie Gator Party concerning the
unfairness' of the Fratern 'y-Non-Fratcrnify ratio of its
slate of candidates, and brought the apparently fraudu-
lent "freshman primary" which the Dixie. Party spon-
sored, to the attention of that party.
The result was not a correction of these ill practices,
but an unsuccessful attempt on the part of one of the par-
ties to have the Editor of THE ALLIGATOR either "shut
up" or removed from office by the Board of Student Pub-
lications.
If the new party will avoid deals whereby "Jim will be
nominated for commander of a veterans' organization if
he promises not to run against Pete for the party chair-
manship," it will be a success, and, in the words of its new
chairman, will "be here to stay."

A Choice Of Alternatives
By a vote of four to one the Gainesville City Commis-
sion voted Wednesday night to levy amusement, cigarette
and utility taxes in addition to parking meter levies, on
the residents of Gainesville, a city comprising approxi-
mately 29,000 residents, of which 7,300, or roughly 25
percent, are University of Florida students.
This action was taken by the commission despite the
fact that the real leaders in Gainesville's civic life, repre-
senting a majority of the city's citizens, supported the view
of University students all the way, and urged again and
again that the commission take into account the burden
which these taxes would place on University students, a
majority of whom live on limited incomes.
Among this group of civic leaders who fought the
amusement and cigarette taxes were the president of the
Gainesville Chamber of Commerce, president of the Junior
Chamber of Commerce, the former state federal housing
administrator, Gainesville's representative in the State
Legislature, the editor and the general manager of the
Gainesville Sun, and many other civic leaders.
What these taxes mean is that Gainesville will be col-
lecting an additional estimated $32,120 yearly from stu-
dents who are, in the main, from elsewhere in Florida.
This, in effect, will be taxing residents all over the state.
The $32,120 figure is estimated .on the basis of each
student, including non-smokers, averaging four packs of
cigarettes a week, and each of the 7,300 students average
one movie per week. This is a conservative estimate, since
it is not uncommon for many cigarette smokers to consume
ten packs weekly, nor is it uncommon for some students to
average two or three movies weekly. Also, this compu-
tation- does not take into account the many veterans' wives
who smoke and visit the local theatres.
Proceeding on this basis, Florida students who are
smokers will pay to Gainesville in taxes, $584.00 weekly,
$2,336.00 monthly and $3,360.00 yearly on the basis of a
ten-month year in order not to include the lower summer
enrollment in this computation. The movie-goer students
will pay to Gainesville in taxes $219.00 weekly, $876.00
monthly and $8,760.00 per ten-month year.
This means that the University's 7,300 students, about
three-fourths of whom are veterans, will pay to Gaines-
ville, a city which is not their home town, a sum of $32,-
120.00 during a ten-month school year. The sum, of course,
'does not include the additional taxes to be collected from
students in the Flavet Villages and off-campus who must
pay utility taxes, nor does it include those with cars who
will pay for their parking from now on, or those students
who wish- to bowl or attend some local sporting event out-
side the limits of the campus.

JlUST KEEP. OU S0R O.


By Les Gleichenhaus
-One hundred and six,ty-seven days of adventure on the high seas,
days that roused a nation to a fever pitch of excitement, are compress-
ed into an hour and a half of thrilling screenlore in the picturization of
Richard Henry Dana's memorable classic of the sea, "Two Years Be-
fore the Mast."
All the fury and suspense of Dana's scathing denunciation of the
slave-like treatment of the early American merchant mariner has
been captured and enhanced by the scope of the camera. His grim-
ly fascinating tale of the voyage of the devil-ship, "Pilgrim" from
Boston, around Cape Horn to California is brought to Vivid life
once again.
It was of this voyage that author-sealman Dana wrote, and his
novel, when published, brought a demand from the American people
for Congressional action to ease the lot of the country's seamen.
The film tells of the inhuman treatment meted out to the crew
by a conscienceless captain, obsessed only with the thought of set-
ting a nevw time record for the run. Although this pie stars such
personalities as Ladd, Donlevy and Bendix perhaps the most vivid
portrayal is of the curled lip heel, the captain-Howard da Silva.
By all means take in this show at: the Florida, will play through
Saturday.

missioner who voted against the taxes, are worthy of men-
tion. Butler said at the Monday night meeting of the com-
mission that Gainesville, a city which did all it could in
the way of housing, recreation and general hospitality for
servicemen during war-time., now turns around, and with
one fell swoop, taxes these same men, who are now out of
uniform, because the city must raise money.
Two courses are now open for Uiliversity students-the
first and most effective one would be for the thousands
of students who are of voting age, to register in Gaines-
ville and when the time comes, vote for men who will
treat the. University and its students with fairness.
The second course, and one which is more difficult to
bring about, is to urge the setting up of cigarette, counters
at points on the campus, the construction of a bowling al-
ley in the Florida Union, and the bringing of first-run pic-
tures to the. campus, to be shown nightly.
Student leaders spoke their hearts out on behalf of the
student body and urged the commission to find another
source of income-the commission did not respond to these.

Symphony Group

Taking New Men

Says Director
The University Symphony Or-
chestra is still accepting new reg-
istrants. Director R. DeWitt
Brown says that string players
and a flute player are especially
needed by the organization. To
those who are interested and can
qualify for membership the or-
chestra offers a chance to partic-
ipate in the playing of both clas-
sical and light classical works,
Brown said.
Trips Scheduled
Several trips are taken each
year. In the past the orchestra
has visited such places as Jack-
sonville, Eustis, Mount Dora, Lake
City, Ocala, Tallahassee and oth-
er towns in the state and also Val-
dosta, Ga. Several trips are being
planned for this semester, and
broadcasts are to start soon.
Practice Major Selections
The orchestra is now practicing
as its major work the "Rustic
Wedding Symphony" of Carl Gold-
mark, also the "Anakreon Over-
ture" of L. Cherubini, and shorter
works, including the "Spanish
Rhapsody" of I. Albeniz.

Smilh Lauds Team Work


Of Groups Aldin Drive
By Bill Dunlap
"The fraternities and student houses are coming
through 100 percent. With the cooperation of these groups
and the rest of the student body, we should be able to re-
port results of which Florida men can be. proud," Dick
Smith, chairman of the World Students Service Fund, stat-
ed in speaking of the early results of the WSSF campaign.
Praises Two Groups
CitiCL secific examples of co-


operation, Smith praised the work
of members of the Junior IFC and
the Presbyterian Student Union,
who made the first contribution
toward the WSSF drive. Al Crab-
tree, Sigma Nu, chairman of !he
Junior IFC, stated in an interview
Wednesday, "The Junior IFC is
taking charge of the collection
from the fraternities. This is the
first project that they have un-
dertaken since their reformation.
The Junior IFC undertook this
job with great zeal and enthusi-
asm after a speech by Smith in
their first meeting at which he
outlined the purposes, goals, and
plans for the local WSSF cam-
paign."


"Remember blys-no-bite--n bitter taste-no break,,k
In when you buy a Pre.Smoked Dr; Grabow Pipe!"


Committee Named
He announced that his commit-
tee consisted of Ken Musgrave,
Kappa Alpha; Ed Grafton, Beta
Theta Pi; Al Ukeman, Pi Lambda
Phi, and Solon Ellmaker, Lambda
Chi Alpha. Each fraternity's con-
tribution will be in charge of their
own Junior IFC members.
Dick Wyke, chairman of the
Presbyterian campaign, said two
refugee suppers have been held
to raise the Presbyterian quota in
the WSSF campaign. He stated
that these refugee suppers have
been supported by all the Presby-
terian students.
Support Promised
According to reports from the
other chairmen of the student
houses, Ken Shenkle, Newman
Club; Herb Coston, Wesley Foun-
dation, and Dick Broome, Baptist
Student House, the other student
houses will lend their support to
the WSSF campaign by taking up
free will offerings.

of the definite need for a campus
political party that is truly repre-
sentative of the student body and
is dedicated to the principles of
Democracyy" He added that "the
new party will be one which is
pledged against the evils of bloc
voting, bargaining, deals, and
horse-trading but is dedicated to
the furthered progress of the Uni
versity of Florida."
Nominating Convention Plainned
Ghiotto also revealed that a
pF.an is being worked out whereby,
each residence group, including
fraternities which agree to allow
their members to be Florida party;
candidates if considered qualified,
is to be represented at a nomin-
ating convention in proportion to
the size of that group. Ghiotto em-
phasized that all Florida students
regardless of past or present po-
litical affiliations, be they frater-
nity or independent men, are
urged to join the new party. "The
Florida party is here to stay,",
concluded its chairman.
Committees Set Up,
Party officials revealed that
three committees had already
been set up for administrative
purposes. The committees and
their members are as follows:
Policy: Ghiotto, Ramsey, Norris
and Blank in addition to Frank
Reyes, Honor Court Chancellor
Herb Stallworth and Sherwood
Stokes. Reyes, Stallworth and
Stokes were elected to the com-
mittee from the membership-at-
large.
Publicity: Charlie Giller, Sher.
wood Stokes and John Norris.
Membership: Hodnor CouFrn
Member Dick Broome and Frank
ValcarceL
Meeting Tonight
Party officials said that they
hoped that all students interested
in student government would at-
tend a meeting of the party to be
held tonight (Friday) in room 305
Florida Union at 7:30 p.m.
Evidence was seen this week of
skepticism as to the new party's
success insofar as the Dixie party
under Chairman Ed Grafton of
Beta Theta Pi, and the Gator par-
ty under Chairman Bill Byrd of
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, were con-
cerned.
"New Students Ignored"
Ghiotto said that new students
living on campus and off campus
in places such as Flavet Villages,
air base and temporary dorms had
been almost completely ignored
by the two existing parties. "We
irtend to give these men full rep-
resentation by using our propor-
tional representation system,"
said Ghiotto.
"Unfair Representation"
He stated further that both par-
ties have claimed that they have
nominated as many non-fraternity
men as fraternity me, but pointed
out that while th s is true, the
non fraternity men comprise
roughly 65 to 70% of the campus
population and are entitled to
more than the 50% representation
-ffererd to them thus far.

Eighty Turn Out


For Football
By Bernie Ward
King Football is back with us
again as Coach Ray Wolf started
spring football for eighty eager
aspirants including fifty five vet-
erans.
The first three days of practise
have been devoted to learning his
team the fundamentals especially
-.,stressing blocking and tackling.
Working On Offense
Wolf has also been working the
newcomers on the offensive for-
mations as well as on the funda-
mentals.
Both the backs and the linesmen
drilled yesterday -on blocking both
on the blocking dummy and on
each other and attacked each with
gusto.
Practice Running Plays
Wolf drilled the backs in run-
ning plays, especially concentrat-
ing on the new T formation which
he plans to use along with the
double wing this season. He work-
ed on forward passes operating out
of the T.
The workouts are scheduled
daily except Sunday for six weeks
and promise plenty of hard work
for the prospective Gator grid-
men.

the effect it might have toward
creating the recently proposed
third state university. "There is
an organized move afoot today,"
declared Freedman, "to split the
University of Florida into three
units. The one big factor to com-
bat the's he continued, "is the
student body."
He went on to say that if the
amusement tax came into being it
would also tax public relations be-
tween students and citizens.
Crews Stresses Danger
Crews also stressed the poten-
tial danger to the cordial relations
between students and townspeo-
ple, which would also, he said,
hinder the University's future ex-
panion and permanent construc-
tion.
Under the city charter the new
levies will not become law until
30 days after passing of the res-
olution. Bids for purchase and
installation of parking meters
will be called for soon.

on the outside, which caused the
beginning of a small fire from
the lighted cigarette. Those men,
whose rooms we"e located near
the incinerator, were forced to
close their windows in order to
avoid the billowing smoke.
Used Fire Extinguishers
At the time the fire was first
seen, several students were fran-
tically trying to find weapons
with which to fight it. The stu-
dents used fire extinguishers at
the blaze while others sought any
other apparatus available. The
glass in the door leading to the
cellar was broken, allowing the
blaze fighters to reach the burn-
ing refuse. They proved to be
capable fire fighters as the small
fire was extinguished without un-
due damage.

Program Plans To

Inform Public Of

Need For Expansion


Sixty-seven University of
Florida students, representL
ing the various counties of
the state, will launch an in-
tensive public relations pro-
gram Monday designed to
inform the people of Florida, the
press and members of the Legisla-
ture of the University's need for
expansion.
Members of the "Committee of
Sixty-Seven" were named today
by Harry Parham, Tampa, presi-
dent of the University student
government, and general, chair-
men. of the committee, Jack Lu-
cas, Jacksonville, and John Crews,
Macclenny.
Tell Method of Choosing
Crews and Lucas said that no-
tifications of appointment to the
committee are in the mail now,
and emphasized that those select-
ed were picked on the basis of in-
terest shown in campus and civic
affairs. Also taken into consid-
eration was the fact that certain
of the appointees are well ac-
-quainted with their county repre-
sentatives, with whom much of
the committee's business will deal.
Meeting Slated for Chairmen
A- meeting of all county chair-
men of the Committee of Sixty-
seven will be held in the Florida
Union Auditorium next Thursday
night at 7:30 p.m., student gov-
ernment officials announced. At

the committee will be explained,
and background information on
the University's need will be made
available.
