The commission room contained
the most demonstrative group as-
sembled there in the past several
years, and Mayor-Commissioner
Broking had to rap time and
again for order, once even advis-
ing two arguing commissioners
not to "engage in personalities."
Commissioners Butler' and J.
M. Dell, Sr., exchanged loud and
angry words for a brief spell aft-
er Butler criticized the special tax
committee for not consulting him
on certain matters
The words between the two
came after Butler said:
"I want the citizens here to-
night to know that the passing of
these taxes is the biggest step
backward that Gainesviille has
ever made. The bad p.licrty we
will get over the state will off-set
any revenue derived, and there
:.as been only one man-one man
mind you-who has continually
advocated a cigarette tax."
He called no names.
Mayor Brooking then said, ad-
"The votes of the commission
d.Ai't bear that out."
Hardly had the mayor finished
this statement when Dell told
Butler to "confine his remarks to
the truth." Butler answered that
it was the truth, tbt no wouldrl
make any remarks he desired a.t
-the commission table, anu snout-
ed: "And I won't be brow-beaten

Answered Dell: "You can see me

Howes stated that he favored
the purchase of the power rather
than the indebtedness of the new

City Commission Passes New Taxes
Last night the controversial city taxes on cigarettes,
amusements and utilities were -finally passed by the
Gainesville City Commission by a vote of 4 to 1 with Com-
missioner Jim Butler dissc, ting.
This marked the first major defeat of the anti-tax
forces headed by such student leaders as Student Body
President Harry Parham and Secretary for Veteran Af-
fairs John Crews, and by such outstanding Gainesville
civic leaders as the head of the, Junior Chamber of Com-
merce and the editor of the Gainesville Sun, among others.
Now is the time for us to pause ,and. reflect on our
course from here on out.
There is a good chance, according to Mr. Ed Roberts,
city manager for Paramount Theatres, that an injunction
against the amusement tax may be. obtained before the
law goes into effect in 28 days from now. The petition
for injunction is based on many legal opinions to the ef-
fect that the Gainesville city charter does not allow the
commission to pass such a tax -. Mr. Roberts, stating that
he "has just begun to fight," promises to take the case to
the Florida Supreme Court if necessary.
Nevertheless, the possibility remains that the. cigarette
and even the amusement tax may, and probably will, be-
*come, effective in less than one month from today. We
must slate our course on that assumption.
We advocate first, that every eligible student register
now to vote in the next city or county elections. The reg-
istration books are now open. If you are over 21, have
six months residence here, and say that you intend to live
in Gainesville, you are eligible to register and vote here,
regardless of whether or not you have registered in an-
We advocate that plans and strategy be laid by student
government officials whereby the. campus area may be
assured of one commissioner at least, representing the
University in the City Commission.
We advocate the. setting up of cigarette machines in
every building on campus, from which cigarettes can be
purchased at 20 cents per pack.
We advocate that plans be made for first-run movies
on campus in the event that the Roberts injunction is not
granted. It should be remembered, however, that the the-
atres were leaders' in fighting this tax, therefore we be-
lieve that until such time as they fail in their legal fight
to hold off the taxes, the campus picture shows should
merely in the planning stage.
Last but not least, we urge that the student body not
heap their resentment on the people of Gainesville, most
of whom fought the. taxes and supported the University
students' stand. It should be remembered that these taxes
were imposed by four city commissioners, and, while we
do not believe that they were malicious in their actions, it
would at least seem that they were rather pig-headed.
A Matter of Policy
Much ado ha's been made lately by harassed campus
politicians over the "biased" stand of the FLORIDA AL-
LIGATOR on the campus political situation. In order to
clear up this misunderstanding, let it be understood that
the editor of this paper promised those who selected him
that the news columns of the ALLIGATOR would be. un-
biased but that the right of editorial expression would be
- reserved for the editorial column.

Protests "Hush-Hush" Practice
Just returned from an attempted, looksee at the new football team
of ours, and it's still the same old story-"Sorry, fellows, but this's
closed practice today."
Last year everyone was enthusiastic about the new team and coach
we had, and rightly so. I like the coach, and liked the team. They
didn't have a very successful season, as seasons go, but I think made a
creditable showing. -One thing heard a lot was that the student body
wouldn't support the team when it was losing. In the summer prac-
tices we could watch and become familiar with the boys on the
squad, but as the- season progressed we began ,to hear the short story
This year seems to be started off in the same way with the exception
of everyone going out and watching, and, I believe, the number of
games lost. We'll have a much better season this time, but how about
the student support angle ? Are we to regard the team as some chattel
of the University's, or are we tono.ok upon them as "the boys"?
I like the game very much; arid io one can get more worked up at
one than I, but I dislike having. to look at the program to identify
my own team? Have only been to two workouts, and go,t turned
away at both. Let's have a i 'm.- -i:.r relationship between the squad
and other students;. -.

the merits (?) of the Florida Party? Don't you think that ,the ALLI-
GATOR should be non-partisan inasmuch as all Florida students are
required to contribute to the cost thru the Student Activity Fee ?
Or do you think that we students-should furnish you with a mouth-
piece for airing your own peculiar V'iews? Haven't you heard? The
other parties pay for their o.ii pioparin.I.l, why can't you?
2. These Florida Party leaders: they all claim that they're anti-
frati nitr,', yet its'President, B6b -Ghiotto is an S.A.E-., and another
officer, Joe Black- is an S.P.S.', ar-di:you Mr. Editor, one of the brain
trusts of the Florida. Party, are a Pi Lambda Phi. If you want us
to believe all this business about-"eing 'individuals' and anti-fratern-
ity, how about a public denounciation of your membership in said fra-
ternities? How about living up to those. 'idealistic and hon-
orable principles' by washing your hanas of your trrternity member-
ship, now and forever.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: In answe'i-o reader McKenzie, who in spite of
his signature and given address is listed by the Registrar's office as
Oscar Paul McKenzie, a member and resident of the Sigma Nu fra-
ternity, we will first say 'trat we have supported the Florida Party
as we would have supported any-group which along last will offer
the average student a chance -toa-take part in student government
without being a member of the'very select party "inner sanctum".
As for the ALLIGATOR'S n:.-rartiari;nstirp. we refer Mr. McKenzie to
today's editorial on policy. If Mr. M': K-nr,- had been at the open meet-
ings of the Florida party, rathe-r th3a i teiing on "some Gator Party
big shots," for his information,. as he had admitted to us, he would
have heard Ghiotto and Black d,..:1Ar. on several difference occasions
that-they had been affiliated with fraternities on other campuses. They
have never denied this fact but have emphasized that they are not
affiliated with any fraternity chapters on this campus. They also make
it clear that, far from being antifraternity,. they have invited every
campus fraternity to join the Florida Party minus their "block"
status. Not only was this invitation refused, but it was made clear
that no fraternity would allow its members to be nominated by the
Florida Party. As for the editor of the ALLIGATOR, Mr. McKenzie,
the 40 delegates chosen by members of .this student body do not
need a: "brain trust," particularly when the "brain truster" is not an
official member of their party. As for fraternity affiliation this writ-
er is as proud today of his membership in Pi Lambda Phi as he was
on ,the day he was initiated and-doesn't care who knows it).

The Po/iticoes Battle It Out
By Harold Herman
Dixie Publicity Direclor
'IThe petition presented to the
Honor Court, asking that the part
of the election law stating that
political parties shall not receive
fund from any other source than
those stated in the law be declar-
ed unconstitutional, is detrimental
to campus politics. If that section
is stricken completely from the
law, it would allow political par-
ties to run amuck with campaign
funds and defeat th'e purpose of
the democratic principles which
govern campus politics. The Dixie
party, seeing the evil of this peti-
tion, will present to the Executive
Council the following solution to
the problem: Strike out the last
sentence of that section and insert
in its place a rule where political
parties may receive funds from
any qualify ed source, but the funds
be limited to $50.
About 20 percent of the people
of Florida voted in the last elec-
tion, according to Joe Jenkins,
State Representative from Ala-
chua County. This can be brought
in-close correlation with the small
percentage of student voters that
go to the polls on election day. Ef-
forts of good political parties
have an effect on the good stu-
dent government that would re-
ult from the election of capable
and qualified men proposed by the]
party. The Dixie Party realizes
the importance of students in vot-
ing for their officers and will pre-
sent a representative and qualified
,slate of candidates for election.
Dixie has in the past presented
qualified and capable men and will
continue to do. so in the future.
University College students will
have an opportunity to place a
large number of men on the Exec-
utive Council. In order, to have
representative government it will
be their duty not to let this op-
portunity pass. Students' should be
at the polls on election day. The
Dixie slate of candidates will con-
tain a true representation of the.
student body. i
