Right Or Wrong--Support Them
The election is over!
After hectic, excit- ment-filled, noise-filled, promise-
filled weeks, the stude: t has made his irrevocable choice.
Whether or not the 'est men have been the choice of
the majority is always a debatable issue, but for the sake of
.a greater University of Florida, it behooves us to lend .our
support to those who ha o won, whether or not we- agree
with them-whether or t we voted for them.
Given half a-chancc, ose elected, in most cases, will
turn in a creditable per< minance in the positions to which
they have been elected. Campus-wide social week-ends
and other social reforms can be inaugurated, but only-with
The extremely heavy vote in yesterday's election
shows that Florida is reviving in student interest and stu-
dent spirit. Much of this was due to the advent of a third
party which put the other two on their toes.
The future for the University looks bright-it can be
bright with the support by every studeit of his student
The University's Building Program
(Reprinted from the Gainesville Sun),
Figures on the actual and needed building progress at
the University of Florida have been flying so thick and
fast during Jhe-past few weeks that a brief resume of the
picture as it exists today might well be in order.
In round figures, $6,800,000 has already been allocat-
ed by the State Cabinet out of which actual contracts have
been let for some $4,800,000 of the work. It is estimated
by authorities -who are in positiori to know that some
$7,900,000 more is needed in order -to bring the physical
plant of the institution in line with present needs without
making any provision at all for future expansion. This
means that allocations plus additional needs total $14,700,-
000 and that slightly less than a third of this is now under
Consequently, the current session of the. legislature
opening next Tuesday should keep constantly in mind the
$"9,900,000 in funds still needed for the physical plant of
the University. This is necessary because allocations and
contracts are entirely different things. Contracts made
between the state and individual builders are presumably
binding and not subject to revision by legislative action.
Allocations, however, are merely the earmarking of cer-
tain funds by a state agency. This means that, like all
other unfulfilled administrative acts' of the state, they are
subject to rules and regulations established by the legis-
lature in the forms of laws and appropriations. As to the
funds needed beyond those. already allocated, the legisla-
ture has, of course, the complete say-so.
It is to be hoped that the legislature will make provi-
sion fdr carrying through the program as set forth, for
that program has been given mo'ntlh and years of thought
and hard work by officials who have only the best inter-
\,ests of the University in mind. Any legislator should be
'able to satisfy himself of the real needs of the University
by merely recalling the fact that the present plant of the
University was designed for only 2,500 studelfts, whereas
more than 7,000 are now in attendance and 9,000 are
contemplated in the fall. The present high enrollment is
not expected to decrease. He should also bear in mind
that the present plant of the University represents an in-
vestment of approximately $6,000,000-made when build-
ing was comparatively cheap-of which, however, only
$2,500,000 was appropriated by the state.
If the legislature sees fit to continue the present power
of the improvement commission to let contracts for state
buildings, we feel reasonably certain that the needs of the
University will be met during the coming few years. If,
o0 the other hand, the legislature should return to the old
system of authorizing each individual contract in advance,
the total figure for the University of $14,700,000-.certainly
should be included in the program laid out at the current

Letters To The Editor
Says Peel Editor Has Wires Crossed
Mr. Morty Freedman
Editor, The Alligator
It appears that the editor of the "Orange Peel" has his wires crossed.
In the Spring issue of the "Peel," he criticises you for being biased to-
ward a political party on the campus yet he turns right around and
intimidates that same party in his editorial. Does he mean that you
should not be biased but it is 0. K. for him to be so ?
There are enough rotten rumors being spread around our campus as
it is without his kind of journalism to go with it.
Here's to a greater Florida.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: In answer to Reader Capelouti we can only say,
that the Orange Peel Editor, notbeing a student -of Journalism, not
having any previous campus publications experience, and obviously not
capable of producing anything resembling a half-way decent maga-
zine, must be excused if at times he is over-exhuberant in his new-
founld medium for publicizing himself.)
Questions Infirmary Facilities
I should like ,to have a question answered.
Having had, by necessity, to visit the infirmary I noticed the wait-
ing room was extremely crowded. This does not approach the ques-
tion, however. Inquiring, I was informed that the facilities for hand-
ling an epidemic are sadly inadequate. One must realize that ,the in-
firmary was built when the capacity of the "U" was in its infancy.
From all indications, the peak enrollment has not been reached.
The question is: Is not the health :of the student body more im-
portant than the allocation of funds for other structures? Does con-
struction of these precede that of-,the infirmary? Let us not hide our
heads in a palmetto bush and pass the idea of an epidemic as being
'.'out of the question."'
Realizing the power of the press, I ask your worthy opinion.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Most assuredly, Reader Strauss, the present In-
firmary facilities are inadequate in the event of an epidemic of any
proportions, and certainly an addition to ,the Infirmary is of prime im-
portance. It is for such pressing needs .that the University's Student j
Government through the Committee of 67 is asking the Legislature for i
unprecedented s.ums for permanent construction here.)

SPRING HAS COME TO TAL-
LY. The other night a friend of
mine observed the following dra-
ma in front of one of the dorms
just about light flash time: A
couple walked up arm in arm and
then went into a fond embrace.
My friend was deeply touched by
this tender sign of spring and
continued to watch. The boy and
girl parted and she ran toward
the dorm. Then she stopped, turn-
ed -and called to the boy--"Oh!-
pleased to have met youth"
REGISTRATION AGAIN. We
have a new system here, design-
ed to sped up the process. First
you stand in-line for a couple of
hours (if you get there early)
and receive a number. Then you
go away and come back in a few
hours. When you return you
stand in line again until your
number is called and you can go
in' to register. They try a new
system every time and after
nearly four years I still can't
figure it out.
SUNRISE SERVICES are going
to be held by the school this Eas-
ter Sunday at Killearn Gardens
outside of town. The College Choir
is going to sing and it promises
to be very impressive.
MORE CO-EDS. The word
seems to spread rapidly because
every new quarter brings more
boys to our school. And they
seem to be getting more civil-
ized all the time. Majority of
them are wearing shoes now.
Just shows you what a good en-
vironment can do.

His genius gave wings to words
It was an historic moment. Alexander Graham Bell's telephone
had just spoken its first words-"Mr. Watson, comehere, I wau't you!"
That evening in Boston-March 10, 1876-Dr. Bell's crude
instrument transmitted his voice only to the next room. But out
of it was destined to come a whole new era--the era of quick, easy
nation-wide telephony, of radio telephony in all its varied forms,
of talking pictures, voice and music reproduction systems and
electrical aids for the hard of hearing. Few inventions have played
a greater part in shaping the world we live in!
Since 1877-just one year after Bell's long experimentation was
crowned with success-it has been Western-Electric's privilege to
help carry forward his great idea which gave wings to words. In
that year Western Electric made its first telephone. More than
45,000,000 have followed it-over 4,000,000 ofthem in'1946 alone.
Today, from coast to coast, in factories, offices, distributing
houses and central office installation crews, there are more than
110,000 Western Electric workers. Imbued with the Bell' System
spirit of service, they are helping to provide equipment in record
quantities to meet telephone needs far beyond-any envisioned by
This year marks the 100th Anniversary of Bell's birth-in
Edinburgh, Scotland. on March 3, 1847. From early youth,
lie was keenly interested in .'i r-. r i,.. hard of hearing. He
became a teacher of "visibh: i':.-.: when 18 years old.
This work led to experiments with "telegraphing"
sound, out of which, in 1876, came his greatest invention
Dr. Bell-was a great humanitarian as well as a great sci-
entist. His accomplishments-in aiding the deaf, in com-
munications, in aviation and other lickis-were outstand-
ing. His rich life-which had an incalculably great influ-
ence on the world-came to an end on August 2, 1922.
