Our Swan Song

This is our swan song!
With this issue of THE ALLIGATOR, the 1946-47 staff
bows out and a new s4-aff takes over for next year.
Looking back in retrospect, we are immodest enough
to believe that this year's ALLIGATOR has accomplished
a lot, in spite of the occasional sniping at staff members
by disgruntled crmpii. politicians who were' at variance
with our contention VI "t campus politics has been in the
control of a select fey- "bosses."
.z But getting down to ti-e bigger issues, THE ALLIGA-
TOR early in the. year plugged heavily for more and bet-
ter housing for students, an-d for alleviation of the crowd-
ed classroom conditions. We vociferously fought the in-
adequate football date-ticket provisions also.
Later on in the year we attempted to point out the in-
equalities existing in the campus social set-up wherein the
non-fraternity man had almost no facilities for recreation
in the form of dances or social week-ends.
Still believing that the independent on campus was be-
ing discriminated against, we supported the aims of the
Florida Party in giving independents a. v.oice.in the nomi-
nation of candidates for election. .We sided with the
Florida Party, Bill O'Neal and Don Jones when the "social
Week-end Fund" amendment was introduced and urged
its passage.
Still fighting discrimination, we supported the move
which did away with a clause in the election laws which
allowed only fraternity men to contribute to political par-
ties. All this at the risk of being labeled "anti-fraternity,"
although we published all fraternity news whenever pos-
sible within the limitationsof space, and in spite of the
fact that we are a staff made up predominantly of fra-
ternity men.
More recently we have supported the fine legislative
program of University expansion which was led by the
student administration and the Committee of Sixty-Seven.
Within the last few weeks we have exposed the con-
ditions whereby cafeteria food prices have risen ten per-
cent and have aired the issue thoroughly in THE ALLI-
GATOR.
Also, we have tried to point out in recent weeks that
the danger exists, that by the fall semester we may have
a one-party system of politics on campus as a result of the
grouping of most of the fraternities in one party. We be-
lieve that it is still not too late to remedy this tendency.
We are not so blind as to believe that there has been
total agreement with most of our policies. However, we
are certain of two things: First, we have at all times urged
what we honestly believed to be in the best interests of
the University and the student body, and secondly, we
have been of the belief 4hat a newspaper, like a person,
must have a soul.
This year THE ALLIGATOR has had a soul!


What Price Politics ?

Recently we called attention to a tendency towards
one-party politics on the campus. We said that the cen-
tralization of fraternities in the Gator Party, and the en-
suing top-heaviness in bloc votes would eventually force
the opposition party to give up the fight.
Actions by the Executive Council last Thursday night
bear out our contentions.
Although the student body constitution provides for
the President of the Student Body.to name the members
of his cabinet subject to ratification of his nominations by
the Executive Council, only one of the appointments made
by President John Crews last week was accepted by the
council.
All of the eight men nominated by Crews were emi-
nently qualified for the posts to which they had been
named.* Those not certified by the council were refused
for political reasons-all but two had supported Crews,
who, as cabinet members, they are supposed to assist-a
horrid crime.
Have we then reached the point where party chieftains
dictate the make-up.of the whole student government ad-
ministration ?

Letters To The Editor

Explains Delta Sigma's Position.
Dear Morty,
This letter has as its purpose the clarification of a controversial
matter mentioned in two instances in last week's Alligator. In your
editorial you asserted that Delta Sigma Fraternity is supporting the
Gator Party. Delta Sigma was further mentioned in a news article
which reported this fraternity as being the center of a dispute be-
tween the two campus political parties, as to whether the Gator Par-
ty has 12 or 13 frats in their ranks.
I wish to reestablish the fact that, as yet, Delta Sigma has NOT
pledged itself to any political party! It should be further understood
,that Alan Fox, a member of Delta Sigma, ran for the Sophomore Ex-
ecutive Council as an individual independent of his fraternity. He
represents only himself and the people who voted for him.
It would have been wise and fair, I believe, for any such controver-
sial matter to be settled NOT by competitive cognizancebut by get-
ting the facts from the supposed source of the controversy,-in
this case, Delta Sigma Fraternity! .
Sincerely 'Youis,
Eldward M. Penson, D. S.


Disagrees With Murphree Stand
Dear Morty,
Shades of the service!..I would like to know what Mr. Crews meant.
in his letter to Pres. Tigert in which he stated "It is necessary,
therefore, that we make known to the young women of the state that
Murphree Hall will be set aside for their accommodation and that it is
with pleasure that the men, both veteran and non-veteran, relinquish
their priority on the same."
Has Mr. Crews talked do any boys that have been waiting all year
to get in the permanent dorms. I don't think many of us will release
our so called priority with the greatest of pleasure. It just doesn't
seem fair to me that fellows who lived at the air base and other off
campus quarters and who are now living in the temp. dorms should
be made to go through the same inconvenience again next Sept. just
so the playboys of the campus can have their girl friends next
door to them.
I like girls just as much as the next fellow but when it comes to
giving up my chances for a permanent dorm .that' is where my af-
fection stops! We have done without girls here (and in the service)
for quite some time, and if these future coeds don't want to take there
turn in the temp. dorms as we are doing well they can either con-
tinue to go to Tally or wait until some womans dorms are construct-
ed here on the campus.
It seems a fellow has to be a big wheel on the campus, be married
or belong to a frat in order to secure quarters that would be somewhat
convenient and comfortable. I don't see any of the fellows living in
permanent dorms or in fraternities yelling at the top of their voices;
offering to give 'up their quarters to coeds.
'P. S.' Married couples, without children are living in one of the
temp. dorms now. Why can't the future coeds of Florida do the same;
or do they have children ?

'Gator Lauded By Camera Club
Dear Mr. Freedman,
I wish to extend my thanks in behalf of the University Camera Club
for the kind assistance you have rendered us thru your newspaper dur-
ing this year. Your splendid cooperation in numerous request have
aided us immensely.
Without such an effective medium througnl which to inform other
interested students of our various activities, undo'ubtfully, the Club
couldn't have attained its present eminence on the campus.
Again we thank you for your considerate cooperation in aiding
to promote the Welfare of our newly Reorganized Camera Club. Suc-
cess to you and all your new journalistic endeavors.

Well, this is it-my finis, clos-
ing words, swan song or what
have you. You see exams start
too soon for comfort and after
that I will be graduated (provid-
ing of course ,that they can de-
cide if we are the last class of
FSCW or the first class of FSU
or even a class at all. So if you
don't mind I'm going to remin-
isce-if you do mind you can
just turn to the sports section.
My freshman year this column
was written by Barbara Constans,
i senior from G'ville. Then in 1944
my roommate Louise Sims and I
took it over. The school was small
and we knew most of the students
(including some big shots like
"main spring" Bill Rion, editor
Johnny Walker, and football hero
Bill Gilmartin). By our junior
year Louise was too busy being
a BTO to write the column so
I kept on alone. All went well till
spring ,then I became involved in
a feud to finish with Bob Mann
of the Alligator. Got so bad I
had to wear dark glasses and a
false mustache to spring froliqs.
But that passed cause "Bo trans-

' y senior year-that's this ohe
-I carried bravely on. It wasn't
,too bad except for a little cen-
soring and perhaps a trifle differ-
ence of opinion over coeducation.
I wonder if there'll be a need
for a girl to boy letter since
FSCW has become a thing of the
past. I'll be watching to see if
the space formerly given to sere-
nades will be taken over with
the football scores between- the
two schools.
It has been an experience I
won't forget. Only hope Tally-
grams has been able to make you
laugh, make you mad or. maybe
even take the place of the letter
your girl forgot to write.
Don't think it ain't been charm-

Board Censures


Gator Staff men

Les Gl'elchenhaus, Amusemeint
Editor of THE ALLIGATOR, was
removed from the list of those el-
igible for keys given by the publi-
cation and credit for this year's
work on the ALLIGATOR by
Gleichenhaus was taken away as
a result of action taken by the
bord of student publications at
its last meeting.
Result Of Column
The action was the result of the
April 25 "Campus Carnival' col-
umn by Gleichenhaus, which ac-
cording to the board was in poor
taste.
Morty Freedman, editor-in-chief,
was reprimanded by the board for
allowing the column to appear.
The motion on Freedman read,
"That Mr. Freedman; editor-in-
chief of THE FLORIDA ALLIGA-
TOR, be reprimanded by the board
for allowing to be printed in the
FLORIDA ALLIGATOR the col-
umn, "Campus Carnival," by Les
Gleichenhaus dated April 25, 1947,
and further that .reprimand be
published in next week's FLORI.
DA ALLIGATOR."
Column Deleted
An amendment was made to the
motion which read, "Move that we
amend the above motion to' repri-
mand the Editor to include pro-
vision that colunm willbe deleted
from next week's ALLIGATOR."
Commenting on the board's'
action, Freedman said, "It is al-
most impossible for one man to
check on all the copy that goes,
into the paper, however, I accept'
full responsibility for publishing
the column. I agree that it was in.
foul taste, and had I been able to.
check it, it would not have been
published."
"Board Unduly Harsh"
Freedman added that "I be-
lieve the board was unduly harsh
on Gleichenhaus in not giving him
credit for his year's work, merely
because he slipped up one time on
the quality of his column."







Lettffers To The Editor YeatonTo Retre

Blasts Saturday Class Policy After 20 Years
Editor, "ALLIGATOR"
At the risk of having my ticket punched, but with sincere hope
that I may help to crystalize opinion on a new issue.. I would like to
voice my disappointment and indignation concerning the six day
study week being installed in the coming session. '
For the past two semesters I have looked forward to the summer .
session, when it wculd become possible to visit my home, which I have :
seen entirely too infrequently for four years, without skipping class-
es to do it.
I am certain that hundreds of other twelve month per year students '
here face similar problems, not to mention in detail the considerations
of past University performance, the ability of other overcrowded col-
leges to dispense with Saturday classes, and the effects of the addi-
tional mental fatigue attending the non-existent relaxation of con-
sciencious six-day-per-week study.
There will be excuses advanced, of course, but are they of such ".
a nature that intelligent action cannot remove them? .
Sincerely, .
Clinton E. Wills. .

Architect Tells Position On Bill
Dear Morty,
I would like to clear up the misconception that some students may
have in regards to a recent legislative attempt on HB 255 pertaining to
registration of architects. In recent press releases it was stated that
Mr. Arnett, director of the School of Architecture opposed the bill
at the request of the students and also that the students opposed ,the
bill.. ..
In behalf of a great majority -of-the-architectural students I would
like to say that we led the fight for this bill and did not oppose it
and only withdrew support because our problems can be solved without
recourse to legislation.
This legislature tnreat i-as brought us in close relation and better
understanding with the men now in the' profession. A Student chapter
of the American Institute of Architects is now in the developing
stage.
Sincerely Yours,
Autha W. Forehand

ors in that field.

and Mississippi State two each,
and Georgia the other vote for
the number one spot.

nine racked up a 4-1 victory over
the fraternity champs, the Delta
Tau Delta nine yesterday after-
noon in their annual game for the
possession of their rotating cup.
With Obie Lawson blasting out
two hits off the offerings of Tom-
my Taylor, the Pikes jumped into
a quick lead in the first- inning
when they tallied two runs. T h'e
Delts came back in the fourth for
one run and the Pikes iced the
game in the sixth with another
two run outburst.
" The Pikes got to Taylor for nine
hits, while Boyd limited the los-
ers 'to one double by Dan Ruhl
and a couple of one basers. The
losers made two errors while the
winning Pikes fumbled three
times.
'Boyd seemed to have the game
in complete control most of th e
time and found himself in trouble
only one time as the Delts put
two -men on the sacks with one
out.
This win returns the trophy tc
the Pikes and they gained re-
venge for the licking they absorb-
ed from the Delts last year. The
loser has to fete the winners to a
party at their house.
