A Bleak Future Ahead
Pardon us if we're pessimistic, but we see a bleak fu-
ture ahead for student government at the University of
The switch of the 1.-ippa Alpha fraternity from one
party to another may appear to many to be a perfectly
harmless bit of campus political maneuvering-and we'd
join the party of their c"oice-but to us there are more
implications than 'eet -eye.
Under the ne set-. l :!,e Gator Party has a bloc of 12
fraternities plus tue supA :t of Delta Sigma, a new frater-
nity, while the new All-St, .ents Party has nine fraterni-
ties in its ranks. Numerica ly the Gators have twice, as
many fraternity votes as the All-Students.
Unless the independe-t voters on the campus turn
out to vote in greater numbers than they have in the past,
there's not much doubt concerning the shape of things
We venture to predict that the All-Students Party will
put on an all-out campaign to take the coming summer
elections, and if 'things run true to form and the non-fra-
ternity men remain apathetic, will lose the election to the
We further predict that if the Gators win the summer
elections the All-Student Party will dissolve'rather than
waste good money against hopeless odds. When this hap-
pens we do not believe that an opposition party will be
formed to combat the. Gators.
The result-one party, and the. disintegration of stu-
dent government as we know it.
An Excuse For Extinction
Today the Joint Convention of the Florida Student
Government Association and the Florida Intercollegiate
Press Association held here last fall, delegates from St.
Petersburg Junior College reported that every bit of ma-
terial published in The Wooden Horse, the college's news-
paper, was subject to censorship by the administration.
Other intrusions by the Junior College administration
into student affairs were reported at that meeting, and
several weeks ago the administration of St. Petersburg
Junior College announced.that, because the school's "hon-
or system had failed to function properly," student gov-
ernment would be discontinued at that institution.
We rather believe that the honor system was used as
a scapegoat for the administration in their eagerness to
do away with student government at that institution-at
least the reports from students there would seem to indi-
And don't kid yourself-it could happen here.
Soon we'll have a new University President.--We don't'
knowv who he'll be. He may be as liberal as Dr. Tigert-
he may be a strict disciplinarian. If he is the latter stripe,
he may well use any failings of "Florida's Most Cherished
Tradition," the honor system, as a signal for discontinuing
Florida's system of self-government of students.
The coming examination period will be crucial in the
history of the honor system here. To report an offender
is not to be a "squealer"-it merely is a part of the system
of honor and integrity for which Florida men have been
known throughout the nation.
The honor system here must be upheld!

Housing Co-Eds In Murphree is Best For The University
This week President Tigert asked Student Body Pres-
ident John J. Crews to ascertain what the sentiments of
the student body would be if the suggested use of Mur-
phree dormitory to house coeds were put into effect.
Upon first hearing of this proposal and prior to re-
ceiving full information concerning the disposition of stu-
dents now living in Murphree, we immediately expressed
the opinion that, although we are strong for coeducation
at the University, we could not see moving the hundreds
of veteran and non-veteran students who live in Murphree
to the Alachua County Air Base.
However, we jumped to a hasty conclusion-the resi-
dents of Murphree Hall will not in any case be asked to
move off campus. Housing Director Harold Riker
declared that the great majority of men now in Murp
Hall will be moved into other permanent dorms and
remainder of the Murphreeites will be housed in ten
rary dorms on the campus with top priority on space
Under this set-up, we urge that the use of Murp
Hall for our new coeds be endorsed by the student b

Long Replies On Cafeteria
Dear Mr. Freedman:
In answer to your request that we reply to the recent letter and
editorial comment in the Alligator, we wish to take this opportunity
to express our appreciation.for the splendid manner in which yo" and
your editorial staff have presented the issue.
We have redcubled our efforts in an attempt to correct and control
the service, cleanliness, and variety in menus in the Cafeteria.
Through the cooperation of the- Entomology Department the pest
problems have been reduced to a minimum. A daily check is being
made to insure freedom from pests. Further, we have invited inspec-
tion and criticism from the Health Department to assist us in main-
taining a standard of cleanliness that will insure full protection, from
disease and general health liazard-
Our records indicate thaLt in s'ervn s 693,000 meals since September
23, 1946, we have, by c.:.rtrl..,Tpr...,;, passed back to the students an
estimated $36,000.00 saving on their meals. This has been difficult in
the rising market conditions that have prevailed, and especially so
from October to January 1 when the full effect of the lifting of
OPA controls hit the wholesale markets:
The bulk of our purchases are made on an open competitive basis
from the wholesalers in the State, and we believe that every advant-
age of price has been taken.
Considerable publicity has been given.-to price decreases. As yet,
however, these decreases have no,t been reflected in the wholesalers'
price structure. In anticipation of lower prices we are depleting our in-
ventories, so that we may be in a.position to take advantage of current
market conditions. However, we do feel that in our determination
to hold prices down from 'October to April, we set a control on general
prices in this area and indirectly benefited those .students who eat off
campus. Had we increased our prices at the time of the lifting of the
controls, we would have invited others to do the same.
I am sure that the student body realizes and appreciates the diffi-
culties which we have encountered in serving 693,000 meals with facil-
ities built to accommodate less. than a third of this number. Addition-
al burdens have been placed upon the existing facilities in our attempt
to continue operations during the time that the new cafeteria is under
It is our expressed desire and hope to lower the prices on every item
of food as soon as it is possible to do so. Since we are a self-support-
ing unit, we must depend upon sales to meet all operating costs, and
the prices we pay for food, labor and supplies are directly reflected in
the prices charged on the ser'.lig lines. Many items are served at a
direct loss, but we run, from time to time compensating items to cover
Let me assure you that we are always available to hear complaints
and that-we are glad to receive suggestions which will improve our
service and meet the needs of the student body as a whole.
Very Truly Yours,

An Indiana coed left a list with her roommate-to avoid confusion,
she claimed. It read like this:
"If I get a call from:
Mort-I have a guest for the week-end.
Bob-I've gone to Naptown.
Squeezy-Gone home. Don't ever expect to be back.
Richard-I'm in the library. Come on over."
According to the Daily Texan, the prof was asking .the names of
students in his class.
"And your name, son?"
"You shouldn't abreviate. Your name is Julius." The prof went on
Lo the next student. "And your name is ."
"Billious, sir," replied the scared freshman.
An ADPi freshman, Pat Barnum, became fussed during a pop quiz
.n English comp recently at ,he University of Oregon. Scrounging
around in her brain frantically for a last minute fact or two, she was
interrupted by the professor's, "Write your name on the back of your
paper, please, and turn it in."
She gazed ceilingward, scratched hurriendly, and turned it in. Onk,
too late, and horror-stricken, did she realize that she had written
'English Comp. Love, Pat."
An outstanding Pamona College graduate, a history major, ii
formed college buddies that he had failed. For while he had planned 1,.
work part time and attend graduate school, his aspirations seemed
f!oomed. He had failed to pass the Painters, Paperers and Decorato'm.
umion exam, disqualifying him for the part-time employment. But
on second thought, that isn't so tragic. 'Twould be better if historians'
stayed historians and paperhangers stayed just paperhangers.
In grammar class at the University of Toledo the other day, the in-
structor wrote on the blackboard, "I didn't have no fun at the seaside.
this summer." Then she turned to her pupils and asked, "Roland, how
should I correct that?"
"Get a boy friend," was the quick reply.
The height of conceit is the person who works crossword puzzles
with a fountain pen.
At a northern university, a professor apologizing for not knowing
how long the class had run, said, "My watch has stopped and the ha;.>
clock is not running."
A voice in the back quipped, "There's a calendar right behind you."
A definition of golf, now that spring is luring the enthusiasts of the

obscure hole with a totally inadequate weapon, for no apparent reason.

In the field of sports an "IF" is a big word, and in

few amazing thing's when an "IF" is added. For instance,
IF Florida's Lanky Hafk Gardner had been entered in this
year's Penn Relays-the same day he jumped 6'-5 3/4"
against Auburn here, he would have taken first place-
because the best effort made was

whether or not the Gators actually

that Delta Sigma does not have

Gator Party Chairman Marvin
Benson, when queried on the KA

said that he had no comment oth-

Co-Chairman Max Stone of the
All-Students Party said, "If any
deals were involved in the Kappa

twice as many fraternity members
as the All-Students Party. How-
