Fall Frolics, FloridP.'s biggest
social weekend has been set for
December 5 and 6 by the Inter-
Fraternity Conference. The week-
end, to feature a top name band,
will be a fraternity affair.
With conflicting basketball and
football games on all other dates,
December 5 was chosen as the
only other alternative. A basket-
ball game on the night of the fifth
will be scheduled two days earlier.
Tentative bands being contacted
are Charlie Spivak, Jimmy Dor-
sey, Johnny Long and Claude
It was emphasized that because.
of the increased enrollment it
would be almost impossible for
others than fraternity members to
attend the affair. Since the new
Gymnasium must be limited to
1200 persons only half the frater-
nities will be able to attend each.
Traditionally the biggest week-,
end affair of the year, the IFC':
has presented Georgie Auld, Son-

record discrepancies are being

and Sunday, in order to get the
necessary forms completed and

their records, but such cases are
expected to be very few.

Speaks At 1st
Bus Ad Forum
Dean Looks Back At
History Of Fast
By Bob Lewis
Conducting an open forum Mon-
day evening this week, Waiter J.
Matherly, dean of the College of
Business Administration at the
University of Florida, gave the
history, curricular, program, and
the purpose of the preparation
that is given to students who are
entering the College of Business
Dean Matherly stated that when
he first came to the University of
Florida campus to become the
head of the newly formed busi-
ness school in September of 1926,
there were only five faculty mem-
bers. Since that time the faculty
has increased in body to 41 mem-
bers, six part-time instructors,
and nine graduate assistants. This
factor alone indicates the growth
of the comparatively new college
to the fourth largest of all the
schools and colleges which com-
prise the University, the enroll-
ment being 461 students and a
probable one thousand pre-business
majors in the University College.
The purpose of the College of
Business Administration is to of-
fer instruction in two main fields
of study: Business administration
and public administration. It was
pointed out by Dean Matherly
that there are four sub-main ob-
jects in the business administra-
tion curricular. They are:
1. Training of capable busi-
2. Preparation of efficient
business executives and techni-
3. The development' of the
future business i*n 'into well-
educated thinkers, so that they
will have the needed understand-
ing between the social aspects of
life and the strenuous business
competition which exists today.
4. The advancement oof re-
search 'prbjects"in'" 'tder that
new factors mayrienabdl the men
beginning in bushless tor cope
with new ideas and improve his
The purpose of public adminis-
tration, said Deanf Matherly, is to
prepare the student" for' public
service and benefit." The program
is not one of specialization, .but
rather one which will provide
training in the broad fields of gov-
ernment and for a more able entry
into public life. This broadening
was further stressed by Dean
Matherly's emphasis upon the im-
portance of the "C" courses in the
University College and the planned
specialization giroup- '.%-, their re-
quired elective.'. H- sad, "We
hope that we are training educated
men as well as business men."
The ten fields of specialization
into which business administration
is divided were drawn up by the
faculty, so that a well-balanced
:and well-planned program of stud-
ies could be arranged for the stu-
dents to meet their desires and
needs. The degrees offered
through the graduate school of
business administration are the
M.B.A., the M.A. and the Ph.D. Of
the 33 graduate students regis-
tered this semester, three are can-
didates for the Ph.D., 24, for the
M.B.A., and six for the M.A.

Miss Betty Skelton, Tampa,
Florida's queen of the skyways,
will be the feature attraction at
the air show which .will open the
1947 Homecoming Friday after-
noon, Oct. 24, Mac Christie, chair-
man, annoVnced Wednesday.
The petite aviatrix, youngest
and smallest feminine stunt pilot
in the country, will be flying her
own special-built Great Lakes
Stunt plane completely equipped
with smoke trails. The plane has
become well-known among pilots
everywhere who recognize the coy
little Walt Disney skunk painted
on the side of the fuselage, bearing
the name "The Little Stinker."
In -addition to winning almost
every honor obtainable in the
aerovatic and racing competition,
the slim brunette weighing only a
hundred pounds and standing 5'3"
was selected "Miss Florida Avia-
tion of 1947" in Miami by the
Florida Air Pilots Association. -
Betty has been flying since the
age of 12 and in addition to hav-
ing a commercial license is a
flight instructor on both land and
sea planes. However, it must run
in the family, for her dad, Dave
Skelton, manaegs Airco Aviation
Corporation in Tampa, and her
mother also flies. Betty attributes
her success to their wonderful help
and encouragement when She de-
cided to become a stunt pilot.
Aside from her first love-fly-
ing-the tiny flyer likes dancing
and music. She started aerobatic
flying after being employed by
Eastern Air Lines for almost
three years, and is now guest of
honor at most of the major air
shows throughout the country. A
recent tour called for her to fly
in her single-seater plane over
8,000 miles in one month. During

are keen for sweaters of all shapes, sizes and colors as was shown this

due to the-weather around this time of year and on up to December-

Tampa U. Fight
AVC Concerned Over
Banning Of Tampa
By Jack Bryan
University of Florida chapter of
the American Veterans' Commit-
tee held its first meeting of the,
fall semester Tuesday night in
Florida Union, where nearly a
score of members participated in
a stormy session.
Gerard Sylvester, chairman of
the group for the 1947-48 school
year, presided as several signifi-
cant resolutions were approved
after heated debate.
The local veterans' organization
expressed concern over the recent
action of the President of the Uni-
versity of Tampa in banning AVC
from the campus of the west Flor-
ida institution, and empowered
three Florida students, Sherman
Conrad, Robert Starratt, and
Gerard Sylvester to act as offi-
cial spokesmen for the local chap-
ter at an open meeting scheduled
for the municipal auditorium in
Tampa last Wednesday night. The
Tampa AVC-men are making a
determined fight to establish a
chapter at the University of
Tampa despite concerted opposi-
tion from the American Legion.

book see us at once and we will do
our best to remedy this situation.
If you are a VETERAN student and
still need a book or some supplies that
you cannot obtain from the Univer-
sity Bookstore, Ihis is what you must
do. Go to the Bookstore and ask for
a PURCHASE PERMIT and bring ir
here. 'You must pay in cash for it and
we will give you a signed receipted
bill for the book. You return this with
your Permit to the Bookstore who in
turn will give you a voucher for the
amount. You take this voucher to the
Business Office where you will obtain
a refurid. This procedure while labor-
ious is quire regrettable on our port
since if discourages many veterans
who either do without the book or the
supplies or pay for some themselves
out of pocket. It is this latter prac-
tice which we regret most and wish
to discourage. We hope you will take
the time to go through the "tape"
in the usual manner as laid down by
the Bu-iness Office.
We ;offer our -apologies to Fresh-
men and. Sophomores concerning the
syllabi ifor the C courses. Those are
the books we must get from the Uni-
versity.iWe cannot purchase them ex-
cept on the same basis as every other
student. Pay cash for them at the
Bookstore at the list price and resell
them merely as a convenience. We
did obtain a few C-11 and C-41 as
an acconodotion, but we were sound-
ly refused on the C-31 and C-51.
Perhaps we can do better next time.
We are still trying.
From time to time we want to use
this means of bringing you lists of
books. Remember that we are a book-
store primarily and that we have
thousands of books other than text-
books. Books you will want.as a basis
for a permanent, personal library;
books for reference while you are a
student; books you will want to read
for the sheer enjoyment of it; books
you will wont to give as gifts; books
you will want to have as your own.
We want you to come in and
browse around at your leisure. Any-
time. The realm of books is vast be-
yond tell ng. In .four years you can
only sense it. But it will be a stimu-
lus you 'will carry longer than most
others you will receive as a college

Most Modern In U. S.
According to' Professor C. :D.
SWilliams, it is the "most modern
sewage treatment plant in the Un-
Red States." He is the Resident
Engineer for the Board of Control
for the construction of the plant.
This modern plant was designed
by Reynolds, Smith and Hills or
Jacksonville and the contract was
SlJet by the Board of Control 'to
the Paul Smith Construction Co.
-of Tampa. The project has been
completely financed by the Florida
State Improvement Commission.
Construction began October 14
last year and September 17 this
year the. first sewage was tHined
into the new plant. It is now in
partial operation pending installa-
tion of final equipment. The
whole project should be finished
sometime in December and after
a landscaping program is complet-
ed the place will actually be a
thing of beauty that will attract

which was bought at an initial cost
of over $1,500. This phonograph
is available for class use, led by

is requested that music be played
only by designated persons. Re-

of the machine.
Sponsored by the C-5 Depart-

predict a Florida football game. I came out of seclusion
and predicted the Gators to whip the little North Texas
eleven and then look what happened. For the rest of the
season you will not look in this corner for football predic-

elsewhere on this page.
THERE WERE 15,000 football fanatics in the Stadiurr
Saturday night and when the game was over you could
break them down into the following categories: 1,000 who
were bitter toward the Gator -lo ,-i -. 1,000 who blamed
il on the Gator coaching staff, 1,000 who were just drunk
enough that didn't care who won, and then 12,000 who
were so dumbfounded over the shock of the game they
just didn't know what to think.

they had to say about the game. Some were bitter, but the
majority were so amazed at what they had seen they had
very little to say. Of all the writers who covered the
game, not the first one had a word of criticism for Coach
Wolf and his staff.
TOMORROW AFTERNOON the Gators will trot onto
the stadium turf in Montgomery in quest of their first win
in 13 starts. This might be lucky 13 and it might be the
same old story, another Gator defeat.
SHOULD THE GATORS win this one it would be the
best news to hit this campus since the advent of coeduca-
tion. The Gators have been going through their drills this
week with vigor which removes all doubt of a broken-
hearted team. They seem more determined, than ever be-
fore this season; however, don't forget for the first min-
ute, they will not be facing a small-time team like the one
they played in Gainesville this past week.
THIE GATORS were ranked 103rd in the nation by the
Williamson system, while the Tigers were rated slightly
hbove us. In other words, we will be the underdogs. This,
however, is not the first time for such.
FOR THE NEXT two weeks the Gators will be on the
road. After meeting Auburn they will journey up to Ra-
leigh for their game with North Carolina State. This is
just what they need. With some of the students so bitter,
playing out of the state will give them time enough to get
back their wits and maybe come home for their big Home-
coming tilt with North Carolina in a good mental condi-
WE, HOWEVER, will stick'to our guns and not give
up all hope as the Gators continue their schedule. This
will be their best chance for a win the rest of the season.
A loss to Auburn would almost eliminate all hope for a
(ator win this year.

that Jimmy Kynes, Gator center,
will be game' captain for the
Florida-Auburn clash. Kynes,
playing his second year for Flor-
ida, turned in top defensive per-
formances in both previous

tors, will be "Alabamie bound" to-

with a weak but aggressive Au-
burn aggregation tomorrow after-
After two heart-breaking de-
feats one a 14-6 loss to Ole
Miss, and the other to an under-
rated North Texas State elevenh-
the Florida boys will resume their
familiar position as the underdogs
-but they won't be rated too far
under by any means.
Auburn Lost Opener
Auburn, in the midst of what is
expected to be a mediocre season,
lost its opener to a small Missis-
sippi Southern team, and got back
in the winning column last week
by squeezing out a win over Loui-
siana Tech. Like Mississippi and
North Texas, the Alabamans like
to take to the air, and Coach Ray
(Bear) Wolf and his staff have
been stressing pass defense dur-
ing the week's drills.
Travis Tidwell, Auburn's light-
ning-legged passing and running
sensation, who was the chief trou-
ble maker in Florida's 47-12 loss
to the Tigers last year, will prob-
ably be on the chunking -end of
the Auburn aerial- attack, to say
nothing of his ground-gaining
Let your Tidwells come and go
as they may Florida's got a sur-
price package of pigskin dynamite
that will burn up the dirt on any-
body's. gridiron to the tune of
Bobby Forbes. In 29 attempts, the
175-pound halfback from Clear-
water picked up a net ground gain-
age of 273 yards, placing him high
in national rankings. Getting off
to one of the hottest starts in
Florida's football history, Forbes
has already more than doubled his
total ground gained last year, av-
eraging nearly ten yards per play.
Forbes' running mate, little Hal
Griffin, has also done his share of
ground gaining, and the 155-pound
"mighty mite" from Tampa will
be holding down the left halfback
spot on Saturday's starting lineup.
Other Gator backfield, mainstays
are Quarterback Doug Belden, fur-
nishing most of the passes; Billy
Parker, Alex Gardiner, -Loren
Broadus, Vie Vaccaro and-Laz
Up on the forward wall, the
Wolf linesmen will average 195
pounds, with big John Natyshak,
220-pounder from Youngstown,
Ohio, supplying the' beef at one
tackle and Cliff Sutton at the
other. Jimmy Kynes, otherwise
known as the "Marianna Mauler,"
will be over the ball at center.
Kynes turned in a top defensive
performance in both previous
meets, plugging up a great num-
ber of line-busting attempts.
Charlie Fields and' F'l etcher
Groves, two newcomers to the
starting lineup, will dig in at the
guard slots, and Tommy Bishop
and Billy Turner will hold down
the flank positions.
Having tapered off with light
drills yesterday, the Florida club
will entrain for the inland city to-
night and will arrive tomorrow

Welcome Here And Now
To our new president, Dr. J. Hillis
Like our campus student government,
the Florida Alligator is also a voice, of the
student body. And acting as a voice of
all the students, we initiate you into the
University of Florida with a most hearty
Your extensive and admirable record

We welcome you with the greatest con-
As a newspaper, we were always ready
to be of service to your predecessor, Dr.
John J. Tigert. Our policy of open co-
operation has not been broken by the re-
cent change of University heads, and we
will always be ready to extend our serv-
ice to you whenever we may.
For years the University of Florida of
campus has been a constant process of
democracy in action-a practical operat-
ing example of true Amerianism. This
principle is a part of the faith of every
Florida man and woman. We believe
in our campus democracy such as our stu-
dent government and our honor system.
We not only invite you to join our dem-
ocratic process, but we look to you for
the initial leadership in helping us to con-
tinue our plight to keep this democracy
alive and in constant action.
We college students are not unmoved
by the clouded crystal ball which would
tell of things to come in today's uncertain
world. For this reason alone, we more
than ever cling to the, fact that democracy
must live-and to keep it alive we feel
that our urgent duty is to live it-here
The Florida:Alligator is larger than it's
been in a number of years. The average
size of this year's weekly edition will run
eight pages, plus two rather inconvenient
flaps-yet, that's not large enough to give
complete coverage of the University of
Florida's 8,500 students. It would take a
weekly paper at least twice as large to do
full justice to a campus population as
large as this one.
However, the paper shortage and other
post-war bottlenecks will not permit a
larger paper for the time being. Instead,
the-Alligator staff must spend a good
deal of time in news selection, including
the many letters to the editor, in order to
give you an overall week-by-week account
of what goes on around this campus.
Another way the Alligator staff must
keep abreast of times on campus is to op-
erate on a deadline schedule. There is a
deadline for news, the editorial page, so-
cial events, and ,in fact, there is a dead-
line for every phase of getting out this

Think In The Present
And Hope Some More
As one jong step In eliminating the de-
featist attitude concerning the University
of Florida's football fortunes, we might
stop this talk of a "12-game losing
streak" Technically the Gators have
dropped 12 in a row but each season's
team is a different one and shouldn't be
accountable for the record of the squad
We repeat: This year's team is this
year's and let's remember that. The 1948
Gators have lost two games, one of them
by a 14-6 score to the number 11 team in
the nation. The other was to a small-
school team which, incidentally, played
in the Optimist Bowl last year. Those
who saw the game know that Florida
should have won; those who studied the
superior margin Florida gained on statis-
tics know that Florida should have won.
But they didn't. It was an upset. We
have now lost two games this season.
Why not a few lines of cheer from the
holocaust? See what "The Mississippian"
said ab o ut the Gators' performance
against the Rebels:
"Florida was out to win the ball game all the
way, showing much more spirit of competition
than the Rebel victim of the previous week
(Kentucky)." ". the Florida running attack,
featuring Hal Griffin, Bob Forbes and Bill Par-
ker is a factor that will surprise many an SEC
foe. ." Mississippi was rated a walkaway up
there and when they didn't walk Reb students
wanted to know what the matter was. "The
matter," said the Mississippian, "was Florida.
The Gators throw one of the smoothest operat-
ing T's into the fight that this reporter has seen
in a long while. Hailed as airborne task group,
the Sunshiners failed to offer a serious threat
via that route. Their secrecy-shrouded ground
attack was the burr in the Rebels' hair all night.
Doug Belden, Florida quarterback, was as slick
as a walnut-shell con man in his ball-handling
capacity, and Coach Bear Wolf's handoff plays
to his halfbacks kept the Ole Miss defense on
the move all night. Little Hal Griffin had a pair
of greyhounds named Forbes and Parker put on
a display of wriggling, twisting and squirming
that should make Yvonne De Carlo lose a few
We have a team that's going to deck a
few of the big boys this season. To date
we've lost two games as has Tennessee
and a few other highly-regarded teams.
We haven't- lost 12. We've lost two.
Think in the present.
Liven Up The Place
This campus is alive with construction.
It's heading for the big time. Student
government is at its tops here. The honor
system is a cherished tradition.
Yes, the campus is alive with construc-
tion, but there are a few other things
which could liven up this campus in ac-
tivities, could place more spirit among the
.students every day, and could start the
ball rolling toward originality in thinking,
and a gay old time even during the week
In years past, the first week of school
has a "College Night." War days tem-
porarily halted that tradition, and no one
has started it.
"Hello Week," with black-faced South-
erners, rat races, better acquaintances, a
dance to climax it all, is another feature
needed to be added. Many colleges have
tried it, and worked wonders with it.
"Clean-Up Week" can be a lot of fun
if the right type of entertainment and
plans were made. There are tens of oth-
er little spirited ideas needed for someone
We do not mean to have a name for
every week in the school year. We want
better times throughout each day. Of
course, there's exam week, studies, and
library work. We realize that, but we
want to see a more lively campus. "All
work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,"
might be old, but it may be true.

Reviews And Stuff By Gerald Clarke
Squires reports "Near You" as
its best selling record for the past
week, with the Andrews Sisters'
disc selling despite the fact that
it is somewhat of a stinker. The
Sunshine Shop sold more of Fran-
cis Craig's disking of the same
tune than any other record. Now
at the Melody Mart it was a dif-
ferent story. Since they were out
of "Near You," the best seller
was Pearl Bailey's. "That's Good

the most interesting things we've

which at first glance might appear

can she go. The things are strict-

people are buying them. If you
haven't heard Sister Tharpe you
should-just to know what she

to speak for it, although I can't

offhand. The singer composes
some of her own stuff but on one
of her discs, "I Claim Jesus First,"

Mr. Pressly is my teacher, I

He maketh me to prove dense
He leadeth me to expose my
ignorance before the class.
He maketh me draw figures on
the board for my grade's sake,
Yes, though I study till morn-
ing I shall gain no favor.
The experiments bother me and
the laws sorely trouble me,
He prepareth my quizzes in the
presence of mine enemies,
He giveth me a low mark, my
work runneth over me.
Surely zero will follow me all
the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in a chemis-
try class forever.
