Our Stand On Coeducation
Much has been said by sources outside of the Univer-
sity during th-e past several weeks which has attempted
to wa-rp the actual stand being taken by University of
Florida students through their student government with
regard to issues now before the legislature.
An editorial in The Flambeau, student newspaper of
the Florida 'State College for Women, last week intimated
that student delegates of the University had appeared in
Tallahassee with the express purpose of killing coeduca-
tion at ,the women's college. This is not true.
While not wishing to engage in warfare with our fair
colleagues at the Tally institution, we believe that the

No Second University i
In part of his statement yester- M
day, Parham said:
"In regard to Tallahassee, as a
college, we are not opposed to co-
eduction but we are opposed to a
second university being estab-
)ished at the present time. The in-
evitable result of coeducation at
-Tallahassee as put forth in the
bills introduced in- legislature
would be a second university. The
reason for this (his opposition to
a second university) is that the
State of Florida has not adequate-
ly supported-its one university in
the past 48 years. Times have not
changed sufficiently that we can
safely assume that they will sup-
port one in the future, let alone
In reply to questioning, Parham
said that there would be no objec-
tion whatsoever to coeducation at
Tallahassee if it is left as a col-
lege and not made a university.
Along this line, it is known that
some legislators have expressed
willingness to write a proviso into
any coeducation bill passed, which
would leave the two just as they
"There has been considerable
confusion in regard to the coedu-
cation issue.". Parham said. "I am
not opposed-definitely not oppos-
ed--to coeducation at the Uni-
versity of Florida. I am in favor
But the main issue, which, he
sayc, seems to have been "some-
what placed in the background,"
is the building program. Parham
made clear that th'e future of the
TUniversity of Florida, and there-
fore, higher education in Florida,
depends upon immediate construc-
tion of a satisfactory plant. "I
would like to urge all students,"
he. asks,. "to push tWhs building
Th'e lack'of building in the past
brings forward the main obstacles
n o w to coeducation, Parham
thinks. "There are many factors
be considered. We need one thous-
and additional dormitory spaces
to' house one-third of tire student
body in permanent buildings at the
present time. I am not in favor of
moving presently enrolled stu-
dents out of the permanent dorms
to- make room for coeds."

University of Florida to any other institution will be pro-
hibited in the coeducation bill.
2. That there will be one great coeducational state
University and that this institution alone be known as the
,University of Florida.
3. That the coeducation bill does not provide for a
chancellor. We believe the direct policy-making power
of higher education in the state should continue to be
vested in the Board of Control, whose members must be
selected from various sections of the state, and none of
,whom may be from Alachua or Leon Counties.
In summation, we believe that if FSCW, as a college,
wants coeducation they should have it-but not at the
expense of detracting from the functions, prestige :or serv-
ices associated with the University of Florida.
In the eyes of the nation the University of Florida is
the great institution of higher learning of the State of
Florida-we will not acquiesce to the use of our name
elsewhere or the creation ol a second University at a time
when the state cannot adequately support one.
The Board of Control has filled its need to the state
for many years and we believe it should continue- to do so.
Rather than naming a chancellor, we believe that the
Board of Control should retain its power and in addition
could add an executive vice chairman whose duty it would
be to carry out the recommendations of the Board of Con-
trol on matters pertaining to higher education.
Yes, dear ladies, we-,too, favor coeducation.
The Election Issue
Last night the Executive Council met and the results
of that meeting were not known at ALLIGATOR press
tinie. According to President Harry Parham, last night's
meeting was the last one for this year.
If the council did not take action on certifying the
winners of the recent student body elections at that meet-
ing it means that we will be without the benefit of student
government for the coming year.
It means that there will be no Seminole or Orange Peel,
since there will be no duly elected editors; it means that
there will be no Lyceum Council programs, since there will
be no duly elected Lyceum Council members; it means
students will have no voice in the cost of date tickets, since
there will be no duly elected members of the Athletic
It further means that there will be no Florida Alligator
or Debate Club or Glee Club or Pep Club or Florida Play-
ers or any other organization, since these groups operate
on funds which must be approved by an Executive Council
which will not exist because those elected have not been
It means that a new University President might well
do away with a student government which the students
themselves cannot operate.

Letters lo The Editor
Criticizes Rodeo Story
Dear Mr. Editor:
For a student publication, "The Florida Alligator" is good but it
definitely has its bad points. This letter is.directed to you, pointing out
the fault I found with' the edition dated 11 April 1947.
The article found on page eight, headed, "Annual Rodeo Set for Mon-
day," rightly deserved the frhnt page headlines. I say this, because
I feel that an annual event such as the Block and Bridle Club Rodeo
should have received more support from ,the school paper. Few Peo-
ple will-search the contents of a paper looking for an article announc-
ing some event of the near future, but most people will closely scrut.-
nize a paper for election results. Therefore, I say that news should
come first and records for history should come last.
The reporter assigned ,to the rodeo article did not do his job as i?
should have been done. He merely listed the feature events and did not;
consider the fact that a number of people attending this school had
never witnessed a wild west rodeo. I feel that he should haxe explain-
ed somewhat in detail about each event listed. A reader does not care to
read a lot of words, unless the words are understandable. I must say
I would not have gone to the school rodeo, if I had never been to ,
rodeo and at least knew something of what to expect. The article J 3
dry and probably kept more people away from the rodeo ,than woL.
have gone if the article had never been printed.
I'm not a member of the Block and Bridle Club, but I am a studar
in this school and feel that the school paper did not do the Block ar.'I
Bridle Club or the Reader justice. I like to see our school paper a.,
its best and I feel that this letter expresses the thoughts of more stu-
dents than merely myself. ,
Johnnie F. Barco,
(EDITOR'S NOTE: We appreciate the constructive criticism of Read-
er Barco and assure him that we strive to make this paper one of the
best. We felt that the Rodeo story warranted top billing in the ALLI-
GATOR, but since it did not have more interest than the campus
election results, which was the lead story for the front page, we gavo
it a five column streamer headline on the back page, which is th'
second best spot, in our estimation, which a story can have. Detail
in the Rodeo story was necessarily limited due to lack of space result-
ing from the nation-wide paper shortage).
Asks Apology By Editors
In the recent mud-slinging campaign between the editors of the A~'1'
gator and the Orange Peel (and the subsequent rush to the colors b/,
various adherents) the gist of the argument has largely been ignored.
Let's look at the facts of the case.
Editor Doherty of the Peel starts off in his column by rationalizing"
the impartality of his publication. He states that he holds no office
in any political party. The fact that he was a candidate for office with
the backing of a rather large political party seems to have been too
unimportant for him to mention. This editorializing was to serve as
preface for the Campus Affairs articles on The Press and Politics.
In the former the editor of the Alligator is criticized for endorsing
the Florida Party and using his paper to express personal beliefs.
The politics" blurb was a commentary on the Florida Party holding
said group up to ridicule and ignoring its meritorious movies for fear
campaign laws and equal representation of all groups.
It was this system of double standards that caused Mr. Capelouti. to
wonder what sort of person was editing the Peel. Were Doherty's views
on the position of a campus editor supposed to apply only ,to Mr.
Freedman? Statements made in the Orange Peel seem to come back
at the editor like boomerangs.
. the editorial section is directed toward increasing circulation
and satisfying readers." Were the five to seven hundred Florida Party,
men satisfied by the Peel's tirades?
"Since Alligator income is insured the only useful purpose of a
partisan editorial policy is to propagandize." . since he enjoys
a monopoly, does the editor of the Alligator have the right to confine
the editorial policy of the paper ,to an expression of his personal
beliefs.?" But doesn't the same also hold true for the Orange Peel?,
Wasn't Mr. Doherty's reelection to editorship monopoly insured by the
huge Gator Party bloc?
Followers of both sides are clamoring for the editors to apologize to
each other. Rather they should both apologize to the student body for
allowing the valuable space in their publications to be filled with paro
tisan propaganda and personal feuding.
(EDITUF'S NOTE: yirst let us, for The Alligator's part, take thi3
opportunity to oblige Reader Edelson and others by apologizing fo.2
airing more or less a personal feud in the column of this paper. This
writer should also like to apologize to Mr. Doherty, who has proven
to us that he continued his Alligator work after his column, "Political-
ly Speaking" was discontinued. We wish to reiterate that the state-
ment, "he (Doherty) is not capable of producing anything resembling
a half-way decent magazine ." was personal opinion and represent-
ed only the views of this writer. Our comments were added to letters'
published to clear certain mistaken notions in those letters. To Mr.
Doherty, who thinks he has been slandered, we offer our sincere apol-

Harry James, his trumpet
and his Music Makers-win-
ners of more than 100 na-
tional polls as the top band
of today-are now en route
to the University of Florida's
Spring Frolics, after appearing in
a number of motion pictures.
While local Spring Frolics chair-
men lay plans for the twb-day
week-end, including a tentative
non-fraternity dance at the Air
Base gymnasium, which is pend-
ing on the telephone strike, James
is presenting to the South one of
the most versatile bands in. the
His local appearance will mark
one of the few engagements that
James will be playing outside
of Hollywood this year. James has
recently established permanent
residence in movieville and will
confine most of his future activi-
ties to the West Coast.
The IFC. in preparing for the
modern Gabriel, has voted to
pay expenses for the Cavaliers
to sponsor an Air Base Gym
Spring 'Frolics for the entire stu-
dent body on both nights. The tel-
ephone strike has made it practi-
cally an impossibility, President
Shearouse said, since it hampers
piping James' music to the gym.
Bill Turnbull, Frolics chairman,
announced that Harry James' con-
tract does not permit an after-
noon concert. In answering the re-
quest for a concert, James stated
that he personally would like to
play a concert for Frolics, but his
movie contract forbids all perfor-
mances at concerts, theaters, etc.,
on this tour.
A nation-wide broadcast from
the campus gymnasium has been
tentatively scheduled for -Mutual

James Becomes Actor.
Musician turned actor is Harry
James, says the latest report from
the band. Although Twentieth-
Century Fox Studios signed the
James boys to a long term con-
tract because of their musical tal-
ents, they soon discovered that
James was an actor at heart.
In "Best Foot Forward," James
did a number of scenes with Lu-
cilie Ball and other members of
the cast. This was followed by
"Two Girls and a Sailor;" "Bath-
ing Beauty," aiid "Do You Love
Latest Movies Released
He has just completed "If I'm
Lucky," "Carnegie Hall," "A Mir-
acle Can Happen." But the idea of
James giving up his trumpet en-
tirely for grease paint is without
substance. James' golden horn is
first in his heart as it is in the
hearts of his countrymen.
- James has always sought out.
new, unusual talent, and he has
brought out such luminaries as
Frank Sinatra, Dick Haymes, Con-
nie Haihes, Helen Forrest and Kit-
-ten Kallen, all of whom formerly
sang with the Music Makers.
James Settles Down
Now, after many years of tour-
ing the country, breaking records
in theaters, hotels and ball rooms,
James has decided to settle down
at last. He has recently purchased
a. large ranch in the San Fernando
Valley in California. Here with
Mrs. James (Betty Grable) and
their daughter, Harry intends to
spend the major. portion of his
time in the ensuing years.
SBuddy DiVito and Pat Flaherty
are the featured. soloists in the
band at the present time.
