On The Co-education Issue
(Reprinted fror.; The Gainesville Sun)
Results of the Associa';.:-d Press poll on the question of
-co-education at both the University of. Florida and the
Florida State College for Women indicate that word of
the true motive of this scheme to split the University has
not yet reached all of our legislators.
Although only a minority of the Legislature replied to
the poll, those who did so favored the move two to one.
Co-education for the University of Florida, which was
originally proposed by the Florida State, Junior .Chamber
of Commerce, is all right, for it would do no harm to any
institution. It would merely mean that the University.
here would admit women and would leave the Florida
State College for women intact to grow and prosper as a
But co-education at BOTH institutions is entirely a dif-
ferent matter. It would mean that FSCW would no longer
be a first-rate women's college, but a second-rate univer-
sity which would have to be built up over the years by
taking away units of the University of Florida.
What some of the legislators probably do not realize
is that a survey of the American Association of University
Women throughout the country shows that approximately
50 percent of women students prefer to attend an institu-
tion strictly for women while the other 50 percent want to
go to a co-educational institution. If we make FSCW
co-educational half of the young women who go to college
in Florida will be denied the type of institution which they
prefer to attend. There would be no women's college in
Florida for them. What, we may ask, would be the in-
centive for a girl in South Florida to attend the University
of Florida at Tallahassee, which would be the name by.
which the new institutions would be known ? Isn't it log-
ical to say that most Florida women would want to go to
the University of Florida here because it is more centrally
At the same time that fhe institution at Tallahassee
was being relegated to the second-rate class, the Univer-
sity of Florida would be so badly split between two cam-
puses that the goal of making it one of the great institu-
tions of the nation (just being attained) would become a
If and when the legislators investigate the cost of main-
taining two-state universities at this time, we believe the
answer can be only one thing: Keep the University to-
gether as a compact and economical unit until such time
as the growth of the population demands the creation of
an additional university in South Florida.
Let each legislator bear in mind that a vote for "co-
education at both institutions" would mean a return to the
evils of scattered universities which the Buchman Act in
1905,corrected by consolidating them into the University
here. and the Women's College in Tallahassee.
Reasons For Supporting Drive
This week the Red Cross drive on campus begins.
While some.vets have gripes against the Red Cross as
a result of war-time contact, these gripes, founded or un-
founded as they may be, should not blind these students
to the services which the Red Cross renders to us in peace-
Many veteran students know from first-hand experi-
ence that the Red Cross has been instrumental in speeding
up the delivery of VA subsistence checks. In addition to
this service the Red Cross has made innumerable loans to
students who have not received their subsistence checks
and are without funds.
And then again there is always this in favor of the
work done by the American Red Cross-its's humanita-

the two artists pleased almost ev-

satisfied with the rather well

Everyone enjoyed the well done

selection of novelty numbers.
These letter were amazing for the
fact that they were novel and
that they did make music. The
more than capacity audience ask-

Mr. Thibault sang Debussy's

Questions Recent Hospitality
Dear Mr. Freedman,
Perhaps the student body should be grateful for small favors anm
thank all twenty-one fraternities for letting us hear the Tallahasseo
Glee Club last week, but I left the auditorium feeling cheated.
On an appearance five years ago, the unscheduled encores were
the highlights .of the evening. I remember their rendition of Siboneyv
as being particularly beautiful. Tonight, the group, or leader, seem
ed immune to applause from the audience. Did they sing all the song
they knew, or would additional numbers delay the big dance?
The Lyceum Council is supported by our fees. Why didn't they alone
sponsor the program? And why was the reception not held at the:
Florida Union where there is ample room, and all would feel welcome ?
Unless the object of the whole affair was to give the fra,t boys 2.
thrill, I think it was handled very poorly.
(EDIT'TOR'S NOTE: According to information at our disposal, '
would have been impossible for the Tally Glee Club to sing here-if thli,
Phi Gamis had not given up their house for the night and moved ie.n
masse to thel Air Base. As to why the reception was not held in the
Union-you've got us there.)
Oops-Wrong Man Pledged
Just ,to keep the record straight, I would like the student body to
know that the Carl Durrance, who pledged a fraternity last week iI
