complete self government
faces its greatest test this
year. Whether it has strength
enough, whether it is elastic
enough, whether it is capable of

of new students will all be decid- j

For the past three weeks, Dr.
John J. Tigert, third president of
the University of Florida, has
been a man of leisure.
I After 19 years as head of Flor-
ida's leading university,. Dr. Ti-
gert laid down his presidential
mallet, replaced it with a golf
club and retired.
Leaving his office for the last
time Dr. Tigert said he had no im-
mediate plans except to "rest,
play some golf, and write."
One hour before his retirement
at high noon, a group of deans,
administrative heads and faculty
members gathered in Dr. Tigert's
office and presented him with a
silver punch bowl set and a bound
'olume of testimonial letters
from leading educators through-
out the nation.
In addition to these gifts Dr.
Tigert received a complete desk
set from the Inter-Fraternity
Conference, a new set of golf
clubs from the Athletic depart-
rment, and, from the City of
Gainesville, a certificate for a
Di. Tigert, explaining Lhat he
would not be in a position to an-
lounce his plans until after the
first of the year, expressed hope
that eventually he would be able
to complete a biography of his
grandfather, a pioneer religious
leader and a bishop in the Meth-
odist Church. There was also
mention of a trip to Europe later
in the year.
Meanwhile the Tigerts are mak-
ing their home at 315 E. Boule-
vard in Gainesville. The new home

While most of the Univer-

supper Tuesday, a tropical
storm, with winds of from
40 to 50 miles per hour, swung up
through Gainesville from the Gulf

in the campus area.
Flavet III, in the center of the
wooded section of the campus, was
worst hit by the storm which was
at its height between 7 and 8 p.m.

Hume Tells New Students Of Chances
Afforded By Education At Florida
By Jim Baxley
The broad aspects of an educa-
tion at the University of Florida
afford an opportunity that must
not be overlooked, Dr. Harold H.
Hume, acting president of the
state university, told 2,000 new
students during orientation con-
vocation last week.
The convocation marked the be-
ginning of a three-day orienta-
tion and registration period for
new students and freshmen at
In greeting the first co-educa-
tional class in the history of the
University, Dr. Hume said, "You
are welcome and we shall do our
best to meet your needs and to
work with you in reaching your
goal a liberal education."
Dr. Hume pointed out that the
average age of the present fresh-
man class is "well above the ma-
jority," due to the influx of vet-
Warning the younger men and
women of the class that the com-
petition from the older men would
be "keen and stiff," Dr. Hume
said, "These older men are serious
of purpose; they have fixed ob-
jectives; they are regular in class
attendance; they do not neglect
their studies; they are more in-
terested in content of the courses
tb-in in the marks attained; they
are determined to get all possible
With reference to the facilities
of the University Dr. Hume said,
"It is my sincere wish that all of
you may acquaint yourselves with
what is here. There are buildings;
there are laboratories; there are
classrooms; there is much scientif-

ic equipment. All these are useful
tools to be used in securing what
we call an education."
"But," said Dr. Hume, "these
things do not make a University.
There are other resources; they
are human the faculty and the
staff dedicated to the advance-
ment of knowledge, -to your men-
tal growth, and to the welfare of
the people of the state."
Speaking of extra-curricular ac-
tivities, "those that do not per-
tain to the classroom and labora-
tory," Dr. Hume said, "I would
have you remember this that
they are an important part of
campus life but tlyt they must
not be the main objectives. They
must take a disproportionate
part of your time. You are here
for a serious purpose You are
starting on a new undertaking,
let nothing lead you aside from
your main objective."
"My hope," said Dr. Hume, "for
all of you is that you will leave
this campus as well-rounded indi-
viduals prepared to take a res-
ponsible part in society."
"I would strongly recommend
that you be careful what your
record (at the University) shows.
It is, in a sense, a measure of your
abilities, a measure of your
worthwhileness, a measure, of
your values to society. It means
more to you than to anyone else,
Make it a good record."

On January 7, 1946, only a couple of weeks
after being separated from the ArmyOrdnance
Department, Ken Kesselring finally began
the engineering career he had planned for
himself five years earlier.
He had hoped to come to work at General
Electric when he received his E.E. degree
from Cornell in 1941. Instead he had gone
into Ordnance as a second lieutenant.
There he worked with the Research and
Development Center at Aberdeen Proving
Ground, with "Kangaroo"--the group
formed to introduce new weapons into. com-
bat outfits-and with the Ordnance Technical
Intelligence Group assigned to study Nazi
weapons and engineering developments.
At G.E. he entered the Rotating Engi-
neering Program-especially set up to give
the returning veteran a period of familiari-
zation and general orientation. Upon com-
pleting his assignments under the program,
Ken was assigned to the General ElectricJ
Atomic Power Engineering Project and is
today a section head and project engineer of
the Design Group. The objective: the harness-
ing of atomic energy for power development
arid generation. -

Willing To Raise
(This is the first in a series
of articles on the campus publi-

In a comprehensive poll of stu-
dent opinion conducted this sum-

dents at the University of Florida
are willing to have their activity
fees raised to maintain standards
and qualifications for editorship in
Official results of this poll of
236 students in the 'dorms, classes,

But the students are not the
only people who share these opin-
ions, as the editors and business

field of publications, also desire
these change. However, it will
take a constitutional amend-

The proposed amendments, as

that they will rather than receive

Although the worst of the storm
howled through Gainesville be-
tween 7 and 8, the University
stayed on the alert till near mid-
,night when the center was report-
ed 30 miles west of Jacksonville.
From information gleaned from a
"ham" radio station and relayed
to WRUF, it was believed that the
center was stationary for some
time slightly northeast of Gaines-
ville and that it would hit again
in greater intensity before resum-
ing its curve toward the east coast.
When this failed to happen Uni-
versity authorities sent evacuees
back to their homes.

mighty oak who bragged how
,powerful he was while the little
willow said nothing, only a -few
trees other than the .sturdy oak

the oaks attempted to resist. The

Four Sororities Now Active At Florida
By Marty Lubov
Four local groups of national
sororities have been admitted to
the Gator campus. Organized as
colonizing chapters, they will
function this year as the first sor-
orities to be started at the Uni-
versity of Florida.
Sponsored by national and lo-
cal alumni and transfer members
from other schools, the sororities
are Alpha Delta Pi, Chi Omega,
Delta Delta Delta, and Kappa Del-
ta. Limited to 25 members and
pledges at present because of the
small co-ed enrollment, the four
sororities will pave the way for
many national sorority groups to
arrix\ on campus.
Some 15 national sororities
made application for local colon-
ization. All were proved desirable
by the University committee on
fraternities, societies and clubs,
but on a basis of qualifications
submitted to the committee, it
was decided that the four organ-
izations would be the best suited
to make a contribution to the life
of the student body.
In a statement made to the Al-
ligator by Dean Beaty, dean of
students, at the University, 300 of
the co-eds are commuting school
teachers. Only 250 women are
considered, therefore, to be poten-
tial material for the women's
fraternities. It was reiterated fur-
ther that as soon as the co-educa-
tional enrollment shows a sub-
stantial increase, other groups
will be permitted to begin activi-
Negotiations for leases for
houses are already under way by
the four new local chapters. The
houses will operate under the full
time supervision of a house moth-
er and will conform to rules for-
mulated by the dean of students
and the Board of Control.
The University Committee on
Fraternities, Societies and Clubs
is a long-standing body that must
pass on all organizations promot-
ed on, the-campus. It is a student-
faculty group with members of
the Executive Council, Honor
Court and IFC included. Its pol-
icies with regard to the entrance
of sororities on the campus are
provided by the Board of Control.
"That women's fraternities be
admitted to the University of
Florida as local groups with the
opening of the 1947-48 session;
that these local groups be allow-
ed to rent or lease a house and
operate it under the supervision
of the University; that in rent-
ing or leasing houses, the Uni-
versity committee on fraterni-
-ties, sororities, and clubs will
approve any negotiations, as pro-
vided in existing University reg-
"That the University commit-
tee on fraternities, societies,
and clubs will be responsible for
admitting local groups, and rec-
ognition of national affiliation
will depend upon the progress
of the group as- a local; and,

Could Be Worse;
Could Be-We Say
By Carol Link
It's about 550 to 8000! That is
probably the ratio of women to
men here in the Gator community.
We can't say we are swamped
with coeds but, at least, we do
have enough women to give the
feminine touch on campus. Who
knows, we might even have cur-
tains in the Chemistry lab.
What is the date situation?
With one woman to ever fifteen
men, it doesn't look too bright.
Matrimony has taken about 100
of the women and some 200 of
the 550 are teachers. That still
leaves a good 250 available co-
eds. We are pretty safe in say-
ing that 2000 men are married.
Excluding husbands, wives, and
teachers, this brings the ratio to
one to 24.
Well, A Few Eliminated!

change this ratio a little anyway.

was appointed assistant business
Mr. Baughman said, "It is un-

take a great deal of personal
pride in knowing that this disrup-

now have more construction than
ever before at this University..
"Every effort,'' he continued,
"is being made at present to pro-
vide adequate facilities to educate
and house every qualified stu-
dent. This goal, I believe, has been
successful. There is seven million
dollars worth of construction go-
ing on now and a five million dol-

which will house 1,000 students."

admission of women as students
At the time, Mrs. Fisher con-
tended that she was a taxpayer
and could not obtain sufficient
training in law, her chosen field,
at the Florida State College for
Women. As she was unable to
study law in another state, she
felt justified in seeking permission
to attend the University at Gaines-
ville. Practically no opposition
developed, and the law went into
effect in 1925. The act specified
that women might enroll at the,
University of Florida, provided
they were at least 21 years of age,
had completed two years of col-
lege work .and desired profession-
al courses of study not offered at
We've Had A Few Women
Since then a limited number of
women have always been in evi-
dence on the campus. Technical-
ly the University has remained a
In the spring of 1937, Represen-
tative Gray from Bay County in-
troduced a bill in the house to per-
mit male students to attend and
have the same privileges and
rights as students then enrolled at
the Florida State College for
Women. The bill was negated by
a legislative committee.
With the advent of the G I bill
of Rights and the resulting over-
crowding at the Gainesville insti-
tution, Florida veterans com-
menced to petition Tallahassee of-
ficials last year for admission to
women's college. A small nit-mi]r
of males, husbands of forn er
WAC's attending college under Pe
bill, had gained admittarcea pIe-
viously. Finally, during Sp'jep-,i-
ber of last year, the Tallahassee
institution opened its doors to all
qualified males anxious to com-
mence their education there.
Another Coed Try
In 1944, due to a lack of stu-
dents at Gainesville and crowded
conditions at FSCW, requests were
submitted for the allowing of
women students to enter the Col-
lege of Education. The proposal
was sponsored by members "of the
Gainesville Chamber of Commerce,
the State Junior Chamber 6f Com-
merce and the legislature. How-
ever the Board of Control reject-
ed the idea, stating that they did
not feel qualified to change the
40-year-old policy of the Florida
institution of higher learning.
The Year Arrives
But with the beginning of the
1946-47 school year the pressure
was on legislature from all cor-
ners. Veterans wanted coeduca-
tion, noii-veterans wanted coedu-
cation, and alumni wanted coedu-
cation, along with just -about
every group that had any influ-
ence. So did Tallahassee's sc-ool.,
Then the battle began last s-Irtnl
when the lawmaking body on-
vened. Four separate coeducetion
bills were introduced, with three
of them generally unsatisfactory
to U. of F. supporters and any of
them acceptable to Tally. The
fourth passed unanimnoul -
through both house and sent -.
bringing coeducation to the Uni-
versity of Florida and FSCW,
thereafter to be known as Florida
State University. '-tI ._...
The foremost argument against.
the establishment of coeducation
until now has been the lack bof
dormitory facilities availabl.,.for
both men and women. Thi' i;0b--
stacle is gradually 'being eliminat-
ed. Plans' for new student hous-
ing, including specific provisions
for the construction of a new wom-
en's dormitory, have been ap-
proved by the Board of Control.
And although the obvious present
congestion cannot be denied, nor-
malcy is in store for future Gator
students. Another point express-
ed in by-gone years, mainly that
co-education here would take
away the necessity of the Talla-
hassee plant, has also diminished.
With record shattering enroll-
ments and a well confirmed anti-
cipation of higher enrollments in
future years, maintenance of both
institutions is more than justi-
The University's future appears
bright. Students of the present
may not be too aware of the ex-
istence of co-education. After all
it is merely in its earliest phases.
A significant milestone has been
conquered nevertheless. As fu-
ture alumni we may well be proud
of Florida's development and

Is Broken Into
Larger Fraternities Put
In Orange League,
Others In Blue
An innovation in Fraternity
League Intrarnurals will mark the
1947-48 year beginning with the
first sport when 10 of the frats
square off in one league and the
remaining 12 vie for top honors
in another loop. This change from
the policy o past years finds the
10 largest fraternities on campus,
including the defending champion
Phi Delts, grouped in the Orange
League,. and the smaller groups
placed in the Blue League.
The decision to break the fra-
ternity loop into two circuits was
made b yth eIntramural staff in
conjunction with frat managers at
the close of lt year's regular
session. The actioA was taken, ac-
cording to Intramural officials, to
give the smaller teams in the
league a better opportunity to win
recognition. It was also pointed
out last year that the move would
keep the league from becoming
The task of placing the frets
in their respective leagues was
based on membership, including
both brothers and pledges, at the
end of the 1947 spring semester.
The two leagues will have iden-
tical status and winners in each
loop will receive identical awards.
Contests between winners of each
sport in the two circuits will be
scheduled whenever possible.
Phi Delta Theta, winner of the
1946-47 Fraternity League cup
and title-holder during eight of
the past 17 years, is the pre-

dominate the power-laden Orange
League. Last season the Phi
Delts raked in five individual
sport crowns .and turned on the
steam late in the year to win go-
ing .away after a stubborn KA
outfit had hung on most of the
year. When final totals were com-
puted, the runnerup SAE team
was far back in second place, trail-
ing the champs by 233 points,
1,486 to 1,253.
Using last year's final stand-
ings as a basis for calculation, Pi
Lambda Phi should be a shoo-in
for the top rung of the Blue
.ILeagiue. Despite a much smaller

pins, the Pi Lams wound up in

Intramurals Play Large
Part In Campus Life
By Bill Moor
Intramurals at Florida constitute a major part of the
extra-curricular activities for many men and women.
During the school year 1946-47, the records show, that
a grand total of 3,081 different individuals participated
in the intramural program of the University of Florida. .Of

01 Gator Gets Rehash Of Summer Session
By Harold Hermnai
Dear GI Gator:
Summer school, with the largest
enrollment in history of the Uni-
versity, was very interesting since
there were over four score of
coeds among the 4,700 students
But there's nothing like a hot
'political battle to start off a hot
summer. The two political parties
cleared the decks and fought a fu-
rious battle. When the smoke fi-
rnally cleared, Joe Johnston emerg-
ed the victor in the race for the
presidency by one vote-the clos-
est race in student body history.
Florida Union held a dance be--
fore elections which was appro-
priately called "The Politicians'
Track Meet." That week I also
watched gridders report for the
first summer football practice.

affairs was installed for the first
time and women were found on

the IFC had approved plans for
a summer Frolics to be held the

When the date finally rolled
around (Aug. 8-9),. Les Elgart and
his band provided the music.

Over 4,000 students registered
for the second summer session es-

ord. Florida Union sprang into ac-
tion again and that Friday eve-
ning I attended "Farmers Frolics"
Second summer session started
on July 28. T'was about that.time
I started to notice things I had
missed during the first session
"hustle and bustle." The FLOR-
IDA ALLIGATOR had become an
eight-column newspaper; traffic
had become a problem on the cam-
pus, the noise of the building pro-
gram was unbearable, and that it
was getting hotter day by day.

No More, Than What
We Help Him To Do
Next Wednesday, the University of
Florida will welcome its fourth president.
After, studying carefully the releases and
record of the new president-Dr. J. Hillis
Miller--we believe that he has the neces-

Florida into one of the nation's greatest

250 men for the position, and when it
came to complete agreement for Dr. Mil-
ler, it indicated the same foresight which
it exerted in bringing Dr. Tigert from
Washington in 1928.
We would like to pass on the follow-
ing suggestion before our new president
arrives. Dr. Miller can do no more in
building the University of Florida than

Aim To Revive
Old School Spirit
Tomorrow, school spirit-- that old
Florida tradition should come back
greater than ever.
The first game of the football season
is scheduled in Jacksonville tomorrow
night. The importance of this first game
cannot be overlooked. The- team is. your
team, and you have the responsibility of
bringing school spirit back here greater
than ever, and of bringing a victory back
to the campus tomorrow.
Our primary aim is to achieve a revival
of the old Florida' traditions and an in-
crease in school spirit. It can be bol-
stered more by a comprehensive planning
of activities. A big -rally is set for to-
night. Spirit will flow naturally into your
heart and soul if you will only attend.
It should be the heartfelt desire of ev-
ery student who has come to school this
semester to get into the swing of the old
school spirit. Everyone should make it
his duty to overhaul the lagging spirit and
to see that a new spirit is engendered in
the hearts of the men and women who
can and will make this University the
greatest in the South.
