mr t Florida's New President
1. S. Congress
Charles E. Bennett :I
Will Speak Before .
Booster Club : ~.'
Chartes K. Bennett, candidate
for Congress from the second dis-
trict, will speak here Monday, Oc-
tober 20, at 7:30 p.m., at the Flor-
ida Union auditorium.
The local "Bennett for Con-
gress Club" is opening the meet-
ing to all students and the public.
At the last "Bennett for Con-
gress" meeting, Bennett stated
that a Congressman should try
to avoid waste in government
with all his resources. "The hope
of America lies in the average
man," he said.
Bennett was a past president of
the University of Florida student
body, former editor of the Alli-
gator, and a'member of the Flor-
ida Blue Key, campus hororary
society and was graduated from
the University College of Law.
He first announced his candi-
dacy for Congress in 1941, bu t
withdrew to enlist in the Army.
While in service he led a band of
Philippine guerrillas behind the

Dr. Miller Outlines Policies
Gets Miller's Approval
Students Will Have Even
Student government at the University of Florida re-
ceived a "shot in the arm" and a challenge of greater re-
sponsibility to come when President J. Hillis Miller issued
his first statement of policy to the Florida Alligator.
More Student Responsibility
"The thousands of students enrolled in this institution
may expect ome not to take any of their present responsibil-
ity away," said Dr. Miller. "On the contrary, they may
expect me to place greater responsibility for the manage-
ment of their own affairs upon them."
Interviewed at the end of his first week as President of
the University, Dr. Miller. discussed at length the part to
be played by students in the administration of campus af-
"All of us know," stated Dr. Miller, "that the. best sin-
gle criterion by which we may judge the,ability of a per-
son to assume responsibility is by placing responsibility
upon him. This has been the basic principle of higher
education all these years."
Parelleling this, Dr. Miller pointed out that "we (the
educational administrators) have not assumed that young
people have powers of independent thought and of moral
responsibility, and certainly in higher education as a
whole we have given them very little opportunity for indi-
vidual initiative in either realm.

.The Rec Hall is under the sup-
ervision of Mrs. Peer, wife of. a

daily from 9 a.m. 'til 11 p.m., with
Florida Union staff members as-
sisting her with the duties.

ROUND AND POUND she goes ;and where she stops
Iobody knows .. That seemnis to be the wjay our football
team is at the percent time. After '1 i.i our 13th
straight we now face two of the toughest on the slate in
North Carolina ... .e and University of North Carolina.
We now hold the record for the 1 ...: -' losing streak in
-the history of the Southeastern Conference which was prc-
vipusly held by little Sewanec, who by the way dropped
oii0t of the loop after losing nine straight.

LERNARD KAHN, sports editor of the Daytona Beach
daily, thinks he is ,. ;i,. down to the bottom of the whole
thing of why we are losing by blaming the Board of Con-
trol as well as laying a lot of the blame on the players
This seems very unfair to me, placing the blame on the
boys who at the present time feel worse about the whole
thing than any of the students.
IT IS TRUE we have gotten a certain number of bad
breaks this season in the form of fumbles, penalties and
pass interceptions, but this is not the real reason for our
losses. We have missed at least a dozen good scoring
chances in these first three games. We had fine blocking
in the Texas game in the middle of the field and also on
punt returns as well as kick-off returns, but we didn't take
advantage of them at that time. When the backs were
running in form the blocking was poor and when the
block ng was right the running was poor.
IF AND WITFJT we get both our running and blocking
game going at the same time we will win some ball .games.
WithDoug Belden throwing like he did in the Auburn
game and Bobby Forbes running we will win some games
before the season is over. Loren Broadus and Hal
Griffin will soon hit their stride and when this happens the
scores will pile in (we hope).
BOBBY FORBES, the Clearwater speedster, is fast be-
coming one of the top backs-of the South. In three games
he has 393 yards in 38 running plays which is tops in al-
most any land. Forbes made his longest run of thi. sea-
son in the Auburn game which was for 80 yards. L.,l.,i.-
was one of the leading scorers in the Southeastern Confer-
ence in 1944, but did not hit his stride last season rrf,-. re-

As a prelude to the Florida-Mi-

in Miami, this "B" battle should
bring out the best in the interstate
rivalry that exists between the
Gators and the Hurricanes.
In their only start this season
the Gator jayvees dropped a 19-9
decision to the Pensacola Naval
Air Station Goslins on September
27 in Pensacola. This defeat was
due mainly to the inexperience of
many freshmen on the squad, and
to the brilliant running and pass-

former Middle stars.

league neared completion this
week as the semi-finals and finals
were reached in the Blue and Or- t

In the Blue League it seemed
at press time that the Chi Phis
would follow through to victory.
The CPs to date have beaten the
AGRs 8-4 and gained momentum
to down the Pi Lams 10-0. They
played the Phi Kappa Taus yes-
terday afternoon to decide which
team would enter the final
matches. In the other half of the
bracket the games have only
reached the semi-finals and it is
hard to predict at this point which
team would emerge victorious.
Yesterday the LXAs played the
PGDs and the TXs played the
TEPs in the quarter-finals.
In the ,Orang-e league the ATO's
were matched against the SAEs
and Sigma Nus teamed against
the Sigm Chis in the semi-final
matches yesterday afternoon. All
of the teams have been playing
top-notch ball with the ATOs and
the SXs holding slight edges go-
ing into the games. The ATOs
have won two one sided games
beating the Kappa Sigs in the
opener 10-1 and downing the KAs
12-0. The SAEs drew a bye in the
first round and played the Pikes
a close game in the second beat-
ing them 4-2. The Sigma Nus beat
the SPEs in their only game 10-3,
and the Sigma ObChis won two close
ones downing the Delts 5-4 and
the Phi Delts 4-2.
The finalists in both leagues
will meet as part of the Home-

Monroe County Students
Reorganize "Conch" Club
By Lee Robinson
There is now a new social club
present on the campus of the Uni-
versity of Florida. The Conch
Club, which was first organized
in 1937, was disbanded during the
war and was again reorganized
in Key West this summer at a so-
cial affair. This was the first
meeting for several years and the
turnout was a big success.
The first meeting of the Uni-
versity of Florida chapter of the
Conch Club was held Sept. 29 in
The following officers were
elected: Helio Gomez, president;
Charles Perez, vice president;
Caroline Papy,. secretary, and
Charles Park, Jr., treasurer.
The object and purposes of the
Conch Club are to provide con-
tacts between the members of
the club and the citizens of Key
West; also to provide contacts for
members of the various chapters.
It also plans to promote the par-
ticipation of all the activities that
the club shall vote to socialize.
Any resident of Monroe County
recommended by the membership
committee and voted for by the
majority of members present-
and accepted by the University of
Florida-is a member of the Conch
Club. Officers are elected every
semester and club meetings are
held at least twice a month.
Members are: Nlo Albury, Ern-
est Avila, Harold lasliins. Sidney
Mathews, Archie Potter, Bill Rob-
inson, Daniel Sawyer, Lee Robin-
son, Hello Gomez, Leland Archer,
Howard Butler, Tom Kethings.

Students Urged To Be Careful

tragedies which claimed the lives of their sons who were students at

were lost in accidents which may well have robbed this great state

I deplore the conditions of mechanical age and an age of greatly

basis for prohibiting the use of cars on the part of students at the
I urge the students themselves to take this matter under careful
consideration in their various organizations and to inaugurate a safe-

From Long' Skirts
To Book Publishers
Coming to the ALLIGATOR office from
all over the natiion are college newspa-
pers. In almost every one-the students
in letters, the editors in editorials--there
are blasts against the bookstore ineffi-
ciencies, the booh- lines, and the textbook
It can be voiced here, too, in many
ways. We would, like to say in passing,
however, that the bookstore here has
overcome many obstacles, has at least
worked up a little'better system each se-
mester, and is gradually broadening out
in other ways than acquiring more space.
The bookstore n-rust have large rooms
in order to cut dowri on lines. Other rem-
edies, besides extra space, have been sug-
gested, that of securing more help for
registration week, dof planning a better
system of distribution, of maintaining
good will on the part of the students-
Student attitude here is now changing
from one of nonchalant feeling to one of
disgust and desire for a change. This
store is the University bookstore. Their
:ustorpers are us students. Beginning
lext week the first in a series of articles
.n the bookstore will be printed in keep-
ing with the ALLIGATOR campaigns in
fields of student interest-publications,
library, safety, post office, the bookstore,
ind others to come.
Many Florida students have big libra-
ries growing up in their rooms. They
nave found themselves with textbooks
)nly nine months old, but in attempting
to sell it, have heard that another book
4ill be used next semester or that a new
edition will be available.
There is a demand for a revision, we
grant you. Some new editions have only
-hanges in problems and exercises.
You see, textbook publishers are find-
ing ways to force the purchase of new
books. Some people have compared this
with the long skirt fad, when clothing in-
dustry jumped for the style in order to
place new wardrobes in women's closets.
Whether that is a good comparison or
not, it seems unfair to force college stu-
dents to enter in such a plan.
Veterans do not feel this racket as much-
as students who are paying their own way
through school, but it is not hard to see
that these "paying" students wonder why
revisions have to be made when some new
research should be added.
As far as we will say here, something

A Chance To Grow
There was a day when there was noth-
ing but swamps and sand and forest at
this campus. There was a day when
there was no grass.
Fortunately for the thousands of stu-
dents who have come and gone from this
University in the months and years since
the early years, considerable grass and
shrubbery have been planted to enhance
the appearance of this campus.
The first impression that Florida's
campus makes on a visitor is the beauty
of its grounds. Some campuses through-
out the nation have fallen into the cate-
gory of the dull and drab class, with no
form of shady trees and flowers. It is
true that the campus has been torn up
considerably during the past months, but
it is a necessity for a growing University.
In order to keep this campus up in the
ranks, we must give the "grass a chance
The bulldozers have pushed dirt back
over the ditches, grass seeds have been
planted, and grass cannot sprout unless
you give it a chance. Let's continue to
make Florida's campus a place that will
rank among the top.
The campus will be as pleasant to the
eye as we make it.
No Accidents Yet
But They May Happen
There have been three University stu-
dents killed in traffic accidents since the
opening of school. None happened on
the campus. One may happen, however,
along West University between Ninth St.
and Science Hall if the city doesn't turn
on the lights which border the street.
That stretch is one of the darkest to be
found in the city limits and it is also one
of the heaviest traveled. Students are
constantly crossing the avenue there on
their way to and from the campus at
night. Cars approaching each other cre-
ate a "blind spot" as a result of their
lights, as any driver knows. That's how
cows are hit on the open highways. Un-
less the city turns some lights on, some
night it will be a student who will be the

A Gaior Classic
A GATOR CLASSIC
c'.e cheered loud for old alma-mater,'
We'll wInlup those Texans, we'll make 'em fodrl-.
Now I look bn-ck and Fin all befuddled,
We tried hard but-were we scuttled?
There was the kickoff but no one stood.
We all wanted to see if the ball was good.
It wasn't long 'til the Gators were rolling
And the Texas learn theit coach was consoling.
We rambled down to the Texas first,
Now was the time to quench our thirst.
But wait! Just what goes?
The ball is in the hands of our deadly foes.
It liapipned so fast it was quite a shock.
The Gators lost the ball, what a crock.
Don't be so sad, you Gator fans.
Turn up the bottle and let's all shake hands.
The Tcxans .have scored and things are sad.
Let's cheer those Gators, let's get 'em i mad.
Again we ramble down the nice, green field,
This time those Texans jus' gotta yield.
We're up near the goal and ready to score.
The ball is hippled to number thirty-four.
Away lie goes like a bat outa hell
And crosses the goal with a mighty yell.
The crowd goes Wild, they yell with glee.
-Whata football game this'll be.
We all take a swig of that potent stuff.
Someone throws a bottle, the party's rough.
Alas, I'm drunk, hooray for the Gators,
We'll show the world we're not second raters.
But wait! The crowd goes cold,
A turned Texan just crossed the goal.
Something went wrong, we got to stop this.
On1 again we're on the prowl, .
T.si- fans all give with the Gator growl.
Once again at their goal we halt,
If we don't score, won't be our fault.
The ball is centered to number eighty,
Would you remove your foot, please, lady?
SGriff takes the ball and charges hard,
Te plows through those Texans as if they're lard.
The Gators have scored and everybody's happy,
Slip me just a short one, will ya, pappy?
The ball is kicked and what a beauty,
Gators, nail that Texan, do your duty.
About this time I get suspicious,
Those darn Texans are too ambitious.
The enemy kicked and we touched the ball
And then upon it d(lid I see, a dirty Texan fall.
Those Western lads were getting' hot
And across the goal line one of 'em shot.
My heart was sad, my spirit charred,
Our fighting team had just been marred.
Shay, now, team, I know ish rough,
But some other day we'll do our shtuff.
I'll shtick behind you through thick and thin,
'Cause there jush ain' no better'n Florida men.
Letters To The Editor
I am always pleased to see someone as interested and discerning 8
in campus politics as Mr. Taylor seems to be. There are a few ques-
tions he asked which I hope I can answer.
In the first place, -the All-Student party did not make accusations
against the Gator party. It made only one and still does. The Gator
party is strictly a fraternity party, both in actions and interests
In our political column we did our best to offer a constructive par-
ty's structure. The Gator party had nothing to offer, but instead re-
mained on the defensive for a full column. It is believed by many
that the Gator party publicity director took advantage of his position
on the Alligator staff to read our column before writing his own.
It is true that last summer the Gator party had a slate made up
ot at least 50 percent independent men. However, the All-Student
party's slate consisted of two-thirds independent men. We also polled
the largest independent vote ever to be cast on this campus.
The Gator party in its effort to balance the slate for appearance's
sake, spends a long time trying to find independent men. Last Spring
they went so far as to run a man without his knowledge. By the time
he knew he was running, the Gator party had already elected him to
office. The All-Student party does not do this. We're not interested
in balancing our slate for appearance's sake. We only run men for
their qualifications. At our nominating conventions whether a man
is a fraternity or independent is not taken into consideration.
Thanks for your interest. Come to our next meeting. You are

Why Are Room Rents So High?
We are all well aware that the permanent dorm rents (and per-
haps the other campus housing units) have been steadily rising the
last few semesters. Why? I've heard neither reasons nor excuses.
I'll admit any statement from the housing office. I'll view as an ex-
cuse because in this housing emergency the occupancy of each room
has increased, usually doubled; the rents have'increased. The income
of each room or double room is therefore much larger than before; I
don't believe $160 or so for 4 1-2 months compares favorably with the
income of furnished (kitchenette, private bath) apartments of similar
floor space rented from landlords who make a profit, don't operate
with mass production methods, and do pay taxes--and pay for the
Certainly the little added furniture (dresser, upper bunks, desks)
should be paid for by now.
Dean Price has said that Mr. Long's books are open to all. Are
the housing office's books open? If they aren't, they should certain-
I'd like to suggest the student council immediately become respon-
sible for editing all books on the campus of interest to the students
and periodically publish in the "Alligator" reports and comments on.

and rents throughout this area and elsewhere; investigation of such
matters as high-priced date tickets, unskilled and careless infirmary
A good platform for earnest student politicians would be "Lower

By Elgin WVhite
Once again we begin a dejected
week with the thought ringing in
our minds, "maybe next week!"
It looks as if the student body,
alumni, friends and what-have-
you are right on the verge of
starting that same old chant. No
one seems to know what's the
matter with Gator football. A lot
of people have gotten to the point
where they don't even care. Some
have even gone past this point.
It is only natural for every stu-
dent to have a let-down feeling
over the pigskin situation. We ac-
tually expected the Florida team
to be a h-- of a lot better than
they have shown so far.
The boys on the
team aren't actually lying down
on the job. The coaches aren't
sitting around, not trying to get
the ball rolling. No one is actu-
ally to blame for these early sea-
son losses. True, the boys have
played ragged ball. It has cost
them every game to date. They
are dejected, but they aren't out.
Not by a long shot. The boys
that constitute the Florida team
know they have a good club. They
know they have good coaches to
back 'em up. What they need now
more than anything else is a little
backing from the student body.
Yeah, I know. You're gonna say,
"How can you expect the student
body to back a team that continu-
ally loses?" Listen. Do you think
the team likes to lose? How do
you think those boys on the team
feel every time they have to take
.a kick in the seat of the pants?
You think they like it? You think
they get a thrill out of all the ver-
bal lashings they are getting from
all sides? How can anyone expect
the team to get better, when the
attitude of every blasted soul on
and off the campus ridicules
them? How much heart do you
think those boys will have to get
out there and get their teeth bust-
ed in for a bunch of "fair-weath-

MOVIE PREVIEW: Welcome
Stranger." Bing Crosby and Bar-
ry Fitzgerald return in a picture
that bears a good chance of out-
grossing "Going My Way." The
boys are doctors this time, and the
naturalness of Crosby and Fitz-
gerald is hard to top by anyone in
Hollywood. The picture itself is
well written, well directed, and.
though the plot has been seen time
and time again, the pleasant way
in which Bing and Barry handle
their roles makes "Welcome Stran-
ger" a welcome change to the av-
erage, run-of-the-mill epics that
have been emanating from Holly-
wood the past year or so.
Joan Caulfield is in the picture
to add romantic interest, and I'mV
sure the interest of every Gator oni
the campus will be generated to a
high fervor by the blonde beauty.
You can't miss a good bet if you
go to see "Welcome Stranger." It's
a good picture, all the way.
Dean ,D. K. Stanley, who has
.:arge of the infirmary, this
veek attempted to clarify the ad-
mittedly slow moving conditions
of that campus facility.
Last week in this column we
published a student's viewpoint,
perhaps tersely worded; and this
time we might well look at the
service from the angle of the in-
Dean Stanley said there were
3,704 patient calls between Sept.
18 and Oct. 9, of which number
2,724 were seen by the doctors.
At the beginning of the year,
treatment for a maximum load
of 7,300 students was planned.
The four doctors and 16 nurses
now, however, are faced with an
8,700 enrollment. Plans for addi-
tional facilities have been made
and a building program is well
past the blueprint stage. But un-
til such projects are completed,
the load placed on the infirmary
is unusually heavy.
The doctors and nurses in an at-
tempt to reduce the slowness by
temporary measures are planning
a suggested program. Under this
plan, the dean stated, the student
on the first call will go through
the clinic check line. Results of
this check will be printed on his
card and on second call he will
not be placed in the clinic line
again but will go directly to the
doctor. This may reduce the wait-
Furthermore, in an effort to
stagger the office hours of the
physicians, the doctors themselves
have suggested that two be on
call at 9 a. m. upstairs and two
One physician now remains on
call 24 hours a day in the infir-
Office hours for routine ail-
ments are from 9 a. m. until 5
p. m. seven days a week. Clinic
hours are from 10 a. m. until noon
and from 1:30 until 10 p. m.
Dean Stanley stated that ob-
jective suggestions by students
are welcome, adding that the per-
sonnel aim of the infirmary, after
all, is student service. And those
',f us who are acquainted with the
present-day earnings of physi-
cians, even those in small towns,
are convinced that the infirmary
doctors could do a great deal bet-
ter from the pecuniary standpoint.
It is refreshing, however, to find
that some are willing to serve for
the sake of service to humanity.
Too many, it seems to us, have
made a god of the almighty dol-
lars in these days of costly spe-
cialized medical service. For this
attitude the infirmary doctors are
due our respect.
We hope the planning of the
infirmary administrators works to
the advantage of the students. If
the plans don't work completely,
however, because of the burden of
the overload, then we might well
salt our criticism with an extra
measure of patience and wait the
day when expansion plans come
abreast of the student enrollment
and the slow service is reduced or
eliminated. Until then, the dean
has assured us, he and the per-
sonnel always will welcome sug-
gestions for possible temporary fa-
