Put The Shoe Where It Fits!
The Tallahassee Democrat, a daily newspaper pub-
lished in the state capital, outdid itself last Tuesday in de-
Voting its full editorial column to a condemnation of the
stand taken by the Unievrsity's student body on coeduca-
tion as explained in an editorial which appeared in last
Said the ,Democrat, "Anyway, .the boys down at the
University of Florida learn to make use of lots of words
to outline a position, but they've not yet learned the art
of concealing motives."
The Democrat is correct in its appraisal of our abili-
ties and lack :of ability-we are a mere 7,300 males of
whom over 5,000 are veterans of World War II-we are,
however, still too young, too naive and too idealistic to
possess motives which need concealment.
We are young, foolish schoolboys with just enough
sense to realize that this state, which cannot adequately
house us at this University-which cannot meet our teach-
ing needs, and which cannot supply us with enough class-
room space, is not in a position to create a second Uni-
The Democrat editorial goes on to imply that Univer-
sity students are mere "stooges" of those with interests in
Gainesville. The editorial, however, ignores the fact that
University students only several weeks ago were most bit-
ter and highly aroused over a -series of taxes passed by
the Gainesville City Commission. Also they ignore the
fact that such student leaders as Student Body President
Harry Parham, President-Elect John Crews, Florida Blue
Key President Paul Rogers and Student Body Vice Presi-
dent Jack Lucas come from Tampa, Macclenny, Fort Lau-
derdale and Jacksonville, respectively and certainly have
no interest in the future of Gainesville as such.
These students, however, are interested in the contin-
ued growth of a great state university and are unalterably
opposed to the tearing down of our facilities or of meas-
ures which will put a "foot in the door" towards that end.
Twisting the actual stand we have taken, the Demo-
crat's editorialist inferred that the University "boys" ac-
tually do not favor coeducation if it means having it at
FSCW. We reiterate that this is not true.
The University's student government is on record as fa-
voring coeducation here and at Tally provided both insti-
tutions retain their present status-the University of Flor-
ida a university-the Florida State College for Women a
college; and further provided that coeducation will not
bring about a duplication of present departments.
"If changing the name of FSCW to Florida State Col-
lege will cause the- University boys to be satisfied with
coeducation here," says the Tallahassee Democrat, "that's
Now let's put the shoe where it fits-rather than charg-
ing us with sectional and local interests as a backdrop for
our position on this issue, let the Tallahassee Democrat
explain why, despite the above statement-despite the
fact that all concerned knew our position on another state
university, the House Education Committee yesterday re-
ported favorably on a coeducation bill which would des-
ignate FSCW as Florida State University.
Looks to us like local interests are at work on their

that he abducts her. Though loving her intensely he doesn't trust her
as far as he could throw the Emir's elephant. So iif it rains this week-

Winners Are Finally Certified
After a long-drawn-out squabble which-never should
have occurred in the first place, the Executive Council last
week, by a vote of nine to three, certified all the winners
of the recent student body election.
Now, at least, the threat of- student government elimi-
nating itself is a thing of the past.
It will be interesting, however, to watch the develop-
mefits as a student body president presides over an Exec-
utive Council which is composed overwhelmingly of oppo-
sition party members. Whether or not the Council will
allow politics to rear its ugly head and attempt to stymie
legislation proposed by the new President,, remains to be

COEDUCATION! My goodness,
but the Alligator was upset last
week. But their outburst had very
little effect on us way up here-in
the hills of Tallahassee. You see,.
Mr. Parham said nothing that he
hadn't said before. The Legisla-
ture, from what all the members
I've talked to said, understood him
to say just what the Flambeau
and I quoted. If he was misunder-
stood, it was by more than just us,
and we're still fighting it.
EMPTY DESKS will be much in
evidence with so many of our fair
coeds heading south for the week-
end. Only teacher I know of -who-
isn't objecting is the Marriage-and:
Family professor, who considers it
laboratory work for the course.
Imagine getting academic credit
for Spring Frolics.

been a great success jtidging by-

Student Tells Of Stolen Equipment
Between 8 and 10 p. m., Wednesday, April 23rd, approximately $45.09F
worth of text books and drawing instruments were stolen from the
book racks placed in the stairwell of the library for the convenience of
the students. The lifting of such a large amount seems to indicate the
need for money, and theft for resale, whioh makes it more serious
than such things as short-changing the newspaper boxes, stealing
Stevens' apples, cheating on tests, and the like. However, they are
all bound to ,the principle of honesty and to our Student Honor System,
We all lost if these fail.
Stealing text books, like stealing wallets, invokes greater hardship
than does some other types of theft perhaps. Wallets usually contain
valuable, sometimes irreplaceable papers and personal articles of no
monetary value at all and of interest only to the owner. Text books
and notebooks invariably contain notes, references, underlinings, etc.
which represent many hours of study and work and which can't be
done again. I, for one, can't quite see the necessity for such thefts on
campus, especially if the thief isn't an outsider. If a person gets desper-
ately in need of funds, surely he can turn to friends, or, if not, there)
are other resources.
So, as one of the victims of the above little incident, I'd like I
use the GATOR'S letter column to, if possible, let the person respo
sible known that I'd be glad to help him out if he'll only bring mr ,
books back. I'm low on funds myself, but I think I can scrape up a l
much as he could get for them elsewhere, maybe more. Besides, if .
tries to sell them "elsewhere" he just might run into trouble. He call
find me at the address in the books or any day over at the cafeteria
working at one of the cash registers.

(hi Battffle For
By Bill Boyd
With the end of the third
week now approaching, the
week now approaching the
ntramural fraternity league
softball tournament is near-
ng completion with the field
narrowed to five and pos-
sibly four teams.
The bracket winners have been
decided in three of the four frames
with the fourth still depending
on one game.
Bracket One Undecided
The bracket still in doubt is the
number one set with the SPE'S
and Theta Chi still in the running
vith three wins and no losses
each. The winner of this game
vill definitely enter the semi-fi-
nals from that bracket. Other
eams in that bracket and their
records are PGD 2-2; SX 1-2;
CP 1-3 and DX 0-3.
Number two bracket seems to
e a certainty with the SAE's
he probable winner as they sport
4-0 record with the winless
rEP's as their only possible
tumbling block. The ATO's have
3-1 record, Kappa Sig's 2-2;
IG 2-2; PKP 1-3; and TEP 0-4.
Phi Delts Favored
The third frame is a sure bet
or the Phi Delts to come through
with the right for the semi-final
berth 'from this bracket. They
lave three wins with no defeats
vhile the Sigma NU's have drop-
ped one tilt in three games. Oth-
rs in this bracket are PKT 2-2;
ETR 0-12; and DS 0-2.
The bottom frame is definitely
decided with Delta Tau Delta, pre-
ourney favorites sporting a 3-0
record with one remaining game
with the PLP. LCA has dropped
ne game, that to the Delts, and
hey have annexed two wins, The
PLP have 0-2.; PKA 1-2, KA 1-2.
Tourney Weather Favorable
The tournament has been going
ff smoothly, with plenty of help
rom the weather. No team has
had an easy time in its bracket
ith' some games lasting as long
.s eleven innings, such as the
Pikes' win over the Pi Lams 10-5
n eleven frames.
The pitching has been excep-
ionally good with such hurlers
as Tommy Taylor of Delta Tau
)elta, Buster Nigels of SAE, Al
.indgram of Phi Delta Theta and
a host of other fireball pitchers.
There is very little doubt that
he caliber of play is far above
he pre-war days both in pitch-
ng and hitting. This is evident
ince many of the hurlers from
ast year's winning teams have
een having plenty of trouble
winning this year. Most of the
games have been well attended
nd there is little doubt that the
emi-finals pitting the winners of
rackets one-four and .brackets
wo-three together will draw a
ice crowd to watch the fire-
