Tax Situation Brightens Slightly

Although the local t:.- situation remains much the
same this week as it did last week, there is considerable
hope, on the basis of the attitude exhibited this week by
Gainesville's leadog citize ;", that the oppressive cigaret-
te and amusement taxes, at least, may go down to well-
'deserved defeat.
From an objective point >f view, it is easy to see that
the Gainesville City Comrniission certainly did not cons-
cientiously plan to burden University students with these
taxes, but rather accepted them as a last resort towards
solwng the City's precarious financial situation.
Whether or not the tax ordinances are passed at this
Monday's Commission meeting or at a subsequent meet-
ing, one thing is certain...the outstanding civic ,leaders
of the City, representing what we believe to be a major-
ity of the citizens, have never been for a tax which would
effect University students.
They have fought tooth and nail against the tax and
they at least are deserving of our thanks, even though
four of the five City Commissioners do not echo the views
of these citizens.


The Political Scene Today


After a week's duration of having three political parties
on the campus, we can pause in reflection and sum up the
changes which have taken place as a result of the. new
tri-party setup.
Most important of the developments is the dissapear-
ence of the skeptical, devil-may-care attitude with which
the Dixie and Gator parties first greeted the creation of
the Florida party. Instead there is new a feeling of bel-
ligerence being exhibited by the older parties and this
belligerence rather than being directed at each other as
in the old days, is now directed at "this young upstart."
Policy in the. older two parties, from available reports,
has not changed to any great degree. Nominations are
still being conducted by a committee composed of and
selected by members of the "inner sanctum." Party meet-
ing wherein basic party policy is made and the fate of in-
dividuals decided are .still closed to the public. In some
few instances meetings have been declared open to inter-
ested independents.
In contrast, the Florida Party has held good thus far
to its promise of "clean government" and "full represent-
ation." Every party meeting has been open to the public
and means have been provided for delegates to be elected
by each living group to represent that group in the new
party's nominating convention to be held beginning next
Tuesday night. In addition, the nominating convention
has been declared open to the public as have the other
meetings which te Florida men ave held.
Newest development on the political scene is the pre-
sentation of a petition signed by the necessary number stu.
dents, to the proper student government officials in order
that the Election Law clauses which allow only fraternit-
ies to contribute to political parties, be declared null and
void.
These two clauses definitely work in the interests of the
minority on campus and against the majority. If the
officials in student government who decide this issue are
conscientious and not subject to partisan campus politics,
these two clauses will certainly be declared illegal.

nity man and needless to say is most undemocratic in nature.
I sincerely believe that the Executive Council or the Honor Couri.,
whichever has the power, should immediately take steps to amend thi.;
section of the law. It is clearly discriminatory both in scope and na-
ture.
The election laws also provide, under Section 4 Article D Paras
graph- 6, that the Treasurer of each party shall submit under oai.i
or affirmation to the Secretary-Treasurer of the Student Body an item -
ized statement of election expenditures and income to make sure tha
the parties stay within the limits set by the law. This same par.-
graph sets forth that these statements will be open to the public. Tak-.
ing advantage of the last, today I went to the office of the President 0
the Student Body and his secretary could not find the statements ot
the last election. In fact, no financial reports could be found for tht
years 1944, 1945 and 1946. It would seem to me that all in all, someone
is not doing his duty in regard to the election laws. I firmly believ-
that all political parties on the campus should be made to follow thi'
law and that the officers responsible should be charged tqo, perform .
their duty in this matter.
Yours for better student government, I am

Won Three Track'Letters
Winning 3 track letters at Rob-
ert E. Lee high school in Jackson-
ville was just a beginners stunt
for George. Even the setting of
the Florida state high school shot-
put record of 53 feet, 8 and 3-4
inches in 1943 was duck soup. He
was just biding his time.
Has Two SEC Titles
When he went into the Navy
V-12 program, George decided to
open up. So h'e took two South-
eastern Conference championship
titles in consecutive years, 1944-
.945,-.vith 48-foot offerings be-
fore clinching the Georgia Tech all-
time record with a 49-foot, 1-2
inch heave.
Ambitiont Partially Fulfilled
By then, George was satisfied.
He had partly fulfilled his am-
tilion. But only partly.
He wanted to be an ensign.
The Navy, seeing how ambitious
George was, gave him an ensign's
commission in February, 1946,
along with .hi BME degree, and
bade him fond adieu.-
Working For Letter
Right now he is 'released to in-
active duty.' But George, who is
also a Phi Delta Theta, is by no
means inactive.
He is again humming with
boundless energy, studying indus-
tr'ial engineering, and working
hard to win a Florida track letter.
Knowing George, we'll predict
that lie gets what he wants out
of life. At any rate, we'll know
he's trying.

Bracket 'Winners

Still Undecided

After 35 Games
By Bill Boyd
Intramural fraternity
touch football has just com-
pleted its second week with
the field narrowed down
some what after two rugged
weeks of hard play.
Thirty five games have
been played and still there
is some doubt just who the brac-
ket winners will be. The past
week brought some surprises that
are still shaking the walls of this
department.
Number One Bracket
In the number one bracket the
eventual winner is definitely in
doubt with the Pi Lams, SPE's
and Delta Taus all with one de-
,feat. The out come should be de-
cided some what with the''game
between the Pi Lams and Delts on
Monday, or w'th the game that
was- played yesterday afternoon
between the Pi Lams and the
SPE's., In this bracket the Pi
Lams have 2-1; Sigma Nu's 2-2;
Phi Tau's 2-2; SPE 3-1; Delts 2-1
and the Lambda Chi have dropped
four.
SAEs Lead Brac-.ut
In the second bracket the out-
come is almost decided with the
SAE's having won four and re-
main on the undefeated list. Sec-
ond best are the Pikes who, have
won two and lost one, to the
-SAE's 14-7. Delta Sigs have a
1-1; Pi Kappa Phi 1-2; PGD 1-4;
Sigma Chi 1-2.
Phi Delts, ATO's Lead
The third bracket finds the Phi
Delts and the ATO's in a com-
manding lead with a couple of
wins each and .n. defeats. They
will meet In a game tha twill play
a large-part in the intramual race
.on Tuesday atttvrnon. The Delta
-Chi still holds their chance in the
raMe with two wins and one loss.-
Betas, have 1-2 record. and 'the
.AGR's has failed to .cr .the- win
column irr four games.
Kappa Sig's Lead Loop .
In the .bottom bracket the
.' er laden Katppa Sigs have won
two games to remain the only un-
-defeated: seven included in these
-wins is a 21-0 win over the KA's
who have a 3-1 record in this brac-
-ket. The Theta Cbi and TEP's
-have a 1-2 record and the Chi Phi

Football Squad


Works On T"
By Bernie Ward
The cold snap which descended
6n Gainesville last weeic froze
most of the student body, but
speeded up football practice by
giving the players an added in-
centive to put, their hearts in
their work, mainly to keep warm
as well as to make the team.
Last week's practice ended with
a scrimmage on Saturday which
was hard fought as all the players
trotted out their best wares to
catch the coaches eyes.
Working On Guards -
Most of the work centered
around the development of guards
and centers which seem to be the
spots Coach Wolf wants to im-
prove. The centers this year must
know how to operate out of the T
as well as out of the doublewing
that was used last year This cen-
tering must be smooth and flaw-
less as the whole success of the T,
depends on the pass to the quar-
terback being flawless. This is
what the coaches are working on.
Blocking And Taclding
So far this week .the teams have
worked on blocking and tackling
for the first part of practice pe-
riod and then in the later part,
three offensive teams take turns
running the ball against a defen-
sive team. The plays are run out
of ,the T and the backs seem to
be getting the system down pretty
well.
To Early To Judge
It is still to early in the prac-
tice session to be able to get line
on the various players abilities.
By the end of the practice ses-
sions however, the coaches should
be in a far better position to judge
how good the team will be, and
where his strength and weakness
lie.
