New Student Bank
Opens Quarters In
By Walter Apfelbaum
Featuring modern "ixtures and
a friendly atmosphere, the student
bank of Florida has opened its
new quarters on the ground floor
of Language Hall.
Since October 10, the date the
bank moved, the students have
been treated to fluorescent light-
ing and buffed pine paneling with
efficient service made possible by
an expanded bookkeeping system.
Total cost of the new quarters is
"several thousand dollars," accord-
ing to Mrs. R. H. Shipp, cashier
of the bank.
All the policies of the old bank
are still in effect. Open to stu-
dents only, the bank is used solely
as a safe deposit place for sums
up to $300. In case of theft the
University Board of Control guar-
antees all deposits. Personal
checks to $15 and government and
corporation checks to approxi-
mately $50 are also cashed.
Under the supervision of the
business manager of the Univer-
sity, Mr. K. H. Graham, the bank
is a non-profit institution that
pays no interest, has no outside
affiliations and does not issue
Bank books are issued to stu-
dents much as in regular, banks
and they must appear in person
to make deposits or withdrawals.

Buses Will Leave
The student government in con-
junction with the University has
recently made plans for the trans-
portation of students interested
in going to and from the Miami-
Florida football game Nov. 21.
Buss provided--for this purpose
will leave from the University at
11 Friday morning and arrive in
Miami just in time for the game.
There will be enough buses for ap-
proximately 500 students, and a
charge of $11.50 for a round trip
ticket. A $5,000 insurance policy
will also be available for the trav-
eers at a rate of 25 cents.
A poicy of first come first serv-
ed will be carried out, and prompt-
ness is requested. As a special
service to large groups consist-
ing of 37 men, separate reserved
buses will be arranged for their
transportation, and they should
see or make arrangements with
C. J. Hardee who can be reached
at the A.T.O. house.
The first buses to return to the
University of Florida campus will
leave Miami at about 3 a.m. Sun-
day morning, the number and
amount of buses being determined
by the majority of students wish-
ing to return immediately after
the game. It is impossible for any
of the buses to leave before an
eight hour period has elapsed,
since the bus drivers require an
eight hour rest between trips.
A plan to have a section roped
off for the students who will be
traveling on the buses is now be-
ing worked out, and the the possi-
bility of this proposition going
through is likely.
Friday Fire Call
For State Agency
Ag Building Used As Site
Of Drill For
At 11:29.40 last Friday morning
a fire call was placed from Room
208, Agriculture Building, by
George F. Baughman as a dem-.
onstration to members of the
State Department of Public Safe-
ty and the State Highway Patrol.
It was also placed so that the
Gainesville fire chief and the chief
of police might see how effective
such an emergency call would be.
The time was purposely select-
ed near a class change period to
provide a maximum of difficulty
for the fire and police depart-
ments and at the same time to
keep disruption of class routine
to a minimum.
Officials claimed that the re-
sponse was quite gratifying. The
University electrician appeared on
the scene at 11:31. Two Gaines-
ville fire trucks pulled up at 11:33
and two squad cars from the
Gainesville police department ar-
rived at 11:34.
Although the drill was consider-
ed successful by all observing
agencies, it did point up certain
traffic problems on campus. The
need for developing a personnel
evacuation plan from all buildings
Many students were heard ex-
pressing the devout hope their
11:40 class rooms were on fire.
To Return Proofs
All students, especially sen-
iors, are requested to return
their choices of proofs to Chid-
noff Studios immediately upon
receiving them. It Is necessary
that the Seminole have the fin-
ished prints as soon as is pos-
sible. Chidnoff must have the

The University Book Store has
had transactions this year total-
ing $450,000, according to Klein

the University. The many books
and other supplies carried by the
store are worth about $10,000,
and for the month of July alone
a $40,000 business was report-
This huge volume of business,
necessitated by the increased en-
rollment at the University, has
been carried on under many dif-
ficulties which are not fully un-
derstood by many people. Al-
though the shortage of books still
continues, the student body has
tripled its size.
One of the main reasons for
the difficulty of obtaining many

Posey Appointed Repre-
sentative For Fraternity
By Jim Bowe
With elections out of the way
and the confusion of beginning a
new school year mainly over, the
executive council took advantage
of the quiet period to dispense
with routine business at its reg-
ular bi-monthly meeting last week.
Al Posey was appointed to rep-
resent the executive council at the
meetings being held between Dean
Beasley and faculty members to
discuss the question of what hours
women should be allowed in fra-
The council's attention was
brought to the fact that the elec-
tion of officers for the Florida
Glee Club, which was supposed to
have been last spring, has not yet
taken place. A motion was passed
to instruct the Glee Club to do so
at the next opportunity.
A motion was passed to allot
$250 from the special fund to bring
speakers to the campus for the re-
ligious emphasis period to be con-
ducted next semester. Numerous
requisitions were approved, includ-
ing one for $200 in part payment
to Pat O'Neal for editorship of
last year's Seminole.
Secretary of Organizations La-
mar Weingeart introduced a peti-
tion from the Gator Pep Club to
have their charter changed so that
it would be unnecessary to have
their expenditures approved by the
executive council. This would be
done to facilitate speedier pay-
ment of bills and eliminate red
tape. The motion was tabled, but
a solution to their problems was
reached to give emergency ap-

With the critical post-war housing
shortage, homeless students de-

Introducing Our Changing Alma Mater
Nine thousand Gator men and women
welcome you to the University of Florida's
1947 Annual Homecoming.
Take a bumpy ride over our excava-
tion-blocked and scarred streets and see
for yourself what this place is coming to
-take a long look at a greater University
in the making. Take a tour-or rather; a
detour-and see what goes on. Remem-
ber, every time you have to detour around
or over, there is where something is being
Many enormous new buildings, piles of
lumber and bricks, and massive imple-
ments of construction decorate the cam-
pus greens for this year's Homecoming.
The old Alma Mater sure has
changed, hasn't it? We assume that
you make such an interrogatory com-
ment. Come back next year, and the
next-you'll say the same thing.
The old Alma Mater sure is changing,
isn't it? That's the way we 9,000 Gator
"olks say it. Every day something new is
added-something new is started-why,
what you see now is just the beginning-
the blueprint department is still working
Without apologies, but rather with
pride, we'll say the old Alma Mater is
quite a mess.
This year, besides the construction, you
see a change. We are now- coeducational.
We have the feminine touch here at last,
and it's heading for big time in no time.
Really, to us this mass of progress is a
wonderful sight. The little detours, mi-
nor hazards, and other such inconven-
iences give us a wonderful feeling-that
we're almost the mortar and brick that
are going into this greater university.
This year we are more than ever ea-
ger to welcome you back-this year we
really have something to show you-
the 12th largest state university in the
nation-but even now, we're just get-
For the past several months this stu-
dent body newspaper has been taking a
non-stop ride on the bandwagon for a
greater University of Florida. A greater
University is a major part of our journal-
istic cause for being, and we have, seized
every possible opportunity to support and
promote this campus expansion. Now
we're touting it up to you in hopes that
you will hold the same enthusiasm for a
greater University as we do.
Sure, it's costing millions-your mil-
lions. Right now, you're footing the bill.
But just hold on until we get our diplo-
mas and we will be right out there foot-
ing it with you.
Forward: In Spirit, Seating, Shaping Plans
Forward, Florida that is the theme
the Florida Alligator is placing before
them. Through campaigns, through con-
tinuous efforts to raise the standard of the
paper, we are endeavoring to stay one
step ahead of the projects. Through a
series of articles on important needs on
the campus, we are attempting to be the
voice-piece of 9,000 students.
This is the first week in many months
that we can write an editorial on a foot-
ball victory. We even wanted to publish
a special edition on MIonday, dedicated to
our victory, but the printers said "no."
However, we can say here that one of the
greatest pep demonstrations was present-,
ed here last week-end, and the largest
and best reception of the team's arrival
back to the campus.
We have a team this year that deserves
every bit of backing each student can
ive it. It was a shame that only a hand-
ul of people sent the team away, and
thousands w e 1 c o m e d it back. We
have had the downs, and now while we
are on the, ups, let's put the whole student
body behind the team, the -student lead-
ers, and liven this campus up.
In keeping with our forward policy, the
Alligator wishes to back the students in
an endeavor to gain better seating at the
next game in Tampa. We should like to
see the students get a fair break at the
Furman game, and especially a fair
chance at the Georgia-Florida game in
Too, it was a great shame to see hun-
dreds of Florida students standing during
the entire Texas State game here, when
there, were thousands of seats left in oth-
er portions of the stadium after the first
quarter. We are a big university now,
slipping into our long pants, and as we
broaden out into bigger fields, the admin-
istration, as well as the student body
newspaper, should prepare for the ever-

Grads! A :n The Alumni Meeting!
To the Alumni--A Letter of Appeal:
The most frequent reason given for whatever over-all
disabilities the University suffers is---no strong alufini.
Last Homecoming I looked in on the annual alumni
meeting and regretted to find a mere handful present, al-
though thousands were nearby. Sd 1o' a.s hi3 s s;tua ion
exists, the people of Florida can never be s_.re that their
University, as organ of their social struct ,r ,, will do more
than merely vegetate. Furthermore, this situation is -a di-
rect cause of much misunderstanding beiv.een the people
and their representatives and the Univers'ty. There is no
communication of ideas and information to and fro: The
state does not know whether or not the nm'n effort''. here
are being directed toward the cardinal pri:-, se of train-
ing us for leadership.
Many of the alumni think of college as it e ;sted 10,
20 or 30 years ago. But actually it has ch' ged, as every
community has changed-probably more so.
I therefore appeal to the alumni to acn ur :2t themselves
with their new alma mater-tb see, whait it needs, and
then-assist its growth.
A beginning can be made only by attending the alumni
meeting this Homecoming. At this meeting tie alumn:
can start proceedings to make sure that our ong-awaited
alumni secretary and office will be provided, and that
some form of periodic publication, even if only a mimeo-
graphed sheet, be inaugurated permaneiljy.

VOL. 39, NO. 5 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA, GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA
FRIDAY, OCT. 24, 1947
CONGRATULATIONS, BOYS, you did a fine job in
Raleigh and we are proud of you. But you have an even
bigger task this week when you tangle with the danger-
ous Tarheels of North Carolina. No doubt, Charley Justice,
Walt Pupa and Jim Camp, well remember the tough game
we gave them last year and will not be as over-confident
as you found the Wolfpack. So let's not under-estimate
the power-laden boys from Chapel Hill.
GATOR BOOSTERS shouldn't get too optimistic over
the fine showing the Florida eleven made in Raleigh and
expect the boys to finish the season with a long string of
wins. They have a fine ball club and we don't want to
take any credit away from them, but they have a rough
late for the rest of the season. Let's have faith in the
boys and stick with them, win, lose or tie. They are a fine
bunch and we all know that Coach Ray Wolf and his staff
of able assistants, are the best in the country.
CHARLEY JUSTICE makes his first appearance in the
state of Florida tomorrow afternoon and he is just about
the most publicized college under-classman to ever wear
a football uniform. Here are some excerpts from a sketch
bent out by the North Carolina department of sports pub-
licity about Justice: ". .. he is an excellent team man."
S.. "has plenty of confidence in himself and is a natural
leader on the field." "top-flight broken field runner."
BOBBY FORBES, the fleet, swivel-hipped lad from
Clearwater, who dashed 70 yards for the winning tally'in
Raleigh last week, is expected to carry plenty of mail in'
the Homecoming clash. He will be assisted by little Hal
Griffin, who played a superb game in Raleigh, and Billy
Parker, hard-hitting fullback. Forbes is very near the top
in the nation's rushing and a good afternoon in the sta-
dium would send him to the top. Forbes, with a couple
of long runs thrown in by Griffin, the Tampa speedster,
might be just what the doctor ordered for the Gators to-
BAD BREAKS have continually hounded Coach Wolf
since he came to this school. Last year it was an unheard-
of number of injuries and this year the officials have been
handing out severe penalties when the Gators were in
choice positions., In the Auburn game we lost at least two
tallies and in Raleigh we lost another pair. Let's just hope
that it will be different this wek.
ON THE SPOT wishes to extend the grateful hand of
welcome to the University alumni and all visiting friends
for this week-end. We hope that you will have a fine
time. Don't hesitate to make yourselves at home and
have a-good time. I am sure that the Fighting Gators will
do their very best to give you a good football game and we
hope'that you will go home and tell the folks throughout
the state that the Gators are trying their best and some
day will be one of the, nation's best.

By Bill Boyd
Florida's Fighting Gators, fresh
from their 7-6 victory over the
highly-touted North Carolina State
Wolfpack eleven, will entertain the
Wolfpack's brothers tomorrow aft-
ernoon1 when they tangle with the
University of North Carolina Tar

The Gators will be captained
by Charlie Fields, 195-pound
left guard, who hails from Bar-
tow. Fields is playing his third
year for the Florida eleven and
has been a spark plug in the
forward wall. He was one of
the big factors in the line which
held the powerful North Caro-
lina State Wolf peck at bay.
Stopping the powerful Tar Heels
who romped to a 40-19 win over
the Gators last year in Chapel
Hill will be a difficult task foi
the Gators. The North Carolina
eleven has 40 returning lettermen
with numeral winners three deep
in every position. Paced by their
much publicized sensational sopho-
more back, Charley Justice, the
Tar Heels also have a big and
powerful line which completely
stopped the Georgia Bulldogs' ace,
Charley Trippi, in the Sugar Bowl
last year in New Orleans.
Forbes Gator Star
Bobby Forbes, fleet-footed Flor-
da back, will bear much of the
burden when the opening kickoff
s made. Forbes was one of the
best backs in the Southeastern
Conference in 1944, but failed to
reach his former level last year.
However, he is one of the leading
ground gainers in the nation this
rear and has had a number of
ong gallops. Most notable was
he 7.0-yard touchdown run in the
Wolfpack game last Saturday
light in Raleigh.
When Gator signal callers need
ome one else to carry the pig-
kin they can call on little Hal
griffin, who was rated a fresh-
ian sensation last year on the
Gator squad. Griffin has been
hampered this year with a bad
eg, but seems to be back in form
s he turned in a sterling per-
ormance last week.
Another Gator back who will
e watched is Fullback Billy
arker, the man who gathers
hose extra yards through the op-
osing line. Doug Belden, crafty
lorida quarterback, will be out
here chunkin' the ball whenever
he time comes. Charley Hun-
nger, powerful right halfback,
ight not be able to see much ac-
on, being hampered by injuries
:ceived in the Wolfpack tussle.

game from the ATO's 12-7. After
trailing at the half 6-2, the Sig-
ma Nu's, led by the brilliant play-
ing of Skipper Smith who ac-
counted for six of their points re-
covered to win the contest. Aft-
er the half the Sigma Nu's dom-
inated play all the way. They were
not without opposition, however,
for the ATO's played a top-notch
game while losing.
In the Blue League the Phi
Gams came through with their
second cup in as many starts
when they added a water basket-
ball trophy to the one they have
already won in horseshoes. They
defeated the Phi Taus 9-7 to win
the final game. Leading during
the entire contest, the Phi Gams
were paced by Lou Brown, who
was one of the outstanding play-
ers of both leagues, who would
swim under water coming up
.under the basket to sink his shot.
At the end of the meet the of-
ficials of the tournament submit-
ted the following names as their
selections for the all-campus fra-

Brown and Smith were selected
as captains on the merit of their
excellent playing in their respec-
tive leagues. Both were deadly
shots and good on defense.

Losing Streak In
Bobby Forbes Runs
70 Yards For
By Mac McGrew
Florida's victory-starved Gators
broke into the win column with a
stunning 7 to 6 upset of the N. C.
State Wolfpack to mark up their
first win in 14 starts. The last
Florida victory was back in 1945
against little Presbyterian Col-
Boltin' Bobby Forbes outran the
N. C. State secondary after a
hand-off from Doug Belden for
70 yards in the first period. Laz
Lewis converted for the winning
margin. Forbes outdistanced the
fastest man on the Pack squad
in his dash to pay dirt.
Florida gained 199 yards rush-
ing to State's 167. Three oppon-
ents of the Wolfpack had gained
only a total of 150 yards this sea-
son. Gator spirit offset the State
superiority in number of first
downs, 17 to 8.
Charlie Richkus, State tailback,
tallied the Pack touchdown early,
in the second quarter on a three-
yard offtackle smash to climax
an 80-yard scoring drive. Jim
Byler missed the extra-point at-
tempt to end the scoring.
Florida threatened again in the
first quarter after Fletcher Groves
recovered a Richkus fumble on
the Gator 47. Hal Griffin swept
around left end for 15 yards.
Forbes contributed 10 through the
middle and Belden to Forbes car-
ried to the State 15. The Pack

minutes of the second quarter but
the clock halted the drive on the
Gator five. State made a final
bid in the last 30 seconds of the
game but Byerly missed his second
field goal attempt to finish the
The victory gave Coach Ray
Wolf his first win as head men-
tor at Florida. It was State's sec-
ond loss of the year. Duke defeat-
ed the Pack 7 to 0 in September
on a freak pass which a Blue, Dev-
il tackle intercepted and battered

ida's tally by Forbes was the first
orthodox touchdown scored against
State this year.
N. C. Drives
State drove to the Gator 20 in
the third quarter where Byerly
made a fourth down attempt for
a field goal. Fletcher intercepted
Belden's pass on the State 40 and
ran to the Florida 30. A Richkus
to Stanton pass netted three and
Richkus circled left end to the 20
for a first down. Three tries were
futile and Byerly kicked in vain.
Florida took over on the 20 and
drove to the 46 as the third period
ended. Hal Griffin kept the drive
going with a 14-yard advance at
left guard. Griffin carried six
more to the State 25. The Gators
smashed to the State 10 but a
clipping penalty set them back
and a fourth down pass failed
with State taking over on its own
Richkus passed to Bloomquist
on the Gator 45. Richkus heaved
one too long to Bloomquist on the
Gator 10 but the officials ruled
interference for a completion.
Thompson went to the three but
a clipping penalty set the Pack
to the 25.
Broadus intercepted a Richkus
pass on the 20 and ran it out to
the Gator 30 to end the threat.
Florida fumbled on the first
play and State recovered to give
the Pack another shot at the Ga-
tor goal line. Fletcher gained l0
yards in two tries. Charlie Rich-
kus drove to the nine. The aroused
Gators held the Pack to four yards
in three tries and Byerly came
into the game, for his dramatic
last minute field goal attempt.
The attempt was wide and
short and the Gators won the
ball game 7-6.

To Be Separated
By Doyle Rogers
The seating arrangement for
the Georgia-Florida game has
been announced by Coach Percy
Beard of the athletic department.
Florida students will occupy the
north side of the Jacksonville sta-
dium as they have done in the
past. Seats between the 20-yard
stripe, east goal and the west
goal line will be for Florida stu-
dents and their dates, only. This
means that there are 80 yards of
the playing field facing the Gator
Georgia students who come down
to see this annual affair will be
seated between the 20-yard stripe,
east goal and the east goal line
or in other words, in the remain-
ing seats of the north stands ad-
joining the Florida section. The
Athletic Department realizes that
conflicts might possibly arise be-
tween these rival groups, so a
fence will be constructed to separ-
ate the stands at a point facing
the 20-yard line. It would be a
definite disadvantage to sit in the
wrong cheering section in more
ways than one.
The Gator Pep Club has arrang-
ed for a loud speaker system to be
placed in front of the Florida sec-
tion in order to provide a more ef-
fective cheering section and to
morally overwhelm the Bulldog
Agitators and pugilists will
have to contend with better disci-
plinary measures than in the past
because policing will be increased

Baby Galor Eleven
Scores 7-6 Win
Over Miami 'B'
Trick Play Gives
By Jack Ledoux
The University of Florida "B"
team gave Gatorland a clean
sweep in the football world last
week by downing the University
of Miami "B" team, 7 to 6, in Or-
lando Saturday night.
Apparently stalled, the Baby
Gators used the old "sleeper play"
to score the winning touchdown in
the last minute of play? It was
third down with the ball resting
on the Miami 32-yard line when
Leroy Poucher, Florida left half-
back from St. Pete, slipped unno-
, ticed to the sideline near the Mi-
ami bench. The Miami coaches
frantically tried to warn their de-
fensive backs, but to no avail.
Poucher sped quickly across the
goal line with the snap of the ball
and caught a perfect pass from
Danny Sliman for the touchdown.
Dick Pace, sophomore quarter-
back from Tavares, came into the
game and calmly split the uprights
for the extra point and the ball
Miami had scored in the first
quarter after a 60-yard march
with Frank Smith driving eight
yards over left tackle for the score.
August De Planes attempted to
placekick the extra point, but the
hard-charging Florida line broke
through to smother the kick.
The Florida team outrushed the
Miami squad by a small margin,
but it could not muster a scoring
punch until the last quarter. The
Baby Gators barely missed scoring
in the final moments of the first
half. Jim Kehoe recovered a fum-
ble when the Hurricanes tried to
pull the statue of liberty on their
own 15-yard line. Florida had pos-
session of the ball on the Miami
two-yard line when the half ended.
Fine punting on both sides high-
lighted the game as long, high
spirals set both Miami and Flor-
ida back in their own territory
time after time.
Jim Kehoe, Florida tackle, was
the outstanding player on the field,
playing heads-up ball on both the
offense and the defense. Mears
and Adkins also stood out in the
Florida line. Pace and Sliman
both looked good in the ball-han-
dling role. The running of big
John Cox was the spark of the
Florida offense with able assist-
ance from Leroy Poucher and Earl
Frank Smith with his off-tackle
slants was the leading ground-
gainer for the Miami squad.
A large crowd of Central Flor-
idians turned out to see the B
teams play, and they went away
with the satisfaction of having
seen a close, well-played ball
game. Frequent announcements
over the PA system as to the prog-
ress of the Florida-N. C. State
game increased the tension of an
already exciting game.
Coach Percy Beard, Athletic
Department business manager,
announced today that date tick-
ets would be on sale at the sta-
dium before the North Carolina
game. This is a special accommo-
dation for University students.

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
these there were 932 men in the Fraternity League, 749 in
the Dormitory League and 627 in

Enrollment Records Shatter
By Dell Loyless
When World War II drew to its dramatic close two
years ago, there was a boy on Guam whose thoughts turned
to an early return to the University even as he toasted vic-
tory with a can of beer. The same could be said for every
conceivable spot on the globe'.
The State Board of Control and officials of the Univer-
sity of Florida realized that and were faced with the prob-
lem of estimating post-war enrollment at the University.
About the only thing that could be agreed upon was
that pre-war enrollment records of 3600 and 3700 students
would be shattered. Many said
the figures would rise to 5,000, ple. There are 14,000 on campus

class who were pilots in the wartime Air Force.
They are the best advertisements for the Aviation
Cadet program. Talk with them about it.
Chances are, they'll tell you their service as
pilots was one of the most interesting and exciting
phases of their lives. Fast action, comradeship,
and the chance to serve their country paid them
dividends they don't forget added something

of equal importance to the nation. Freedom,
responsibility, the chance to use your own initiative
are all yours.
The training you get is the finest your govern-
Iment can provide $35,000 worth for every Cadet.
You're taught by skilled in ructors, fly the best
airplanes. Your living facilities are excellent.
Learning to fly today opels profitable fields to
you in aviation which is expanding more rapidly
than at any other time in history.
Pilot training is open, inoui to single men, 20 to
261/2 years old, who have completed at least one-
half the credits for a degree from an accredited
college or university or p4ss an equivalent ex-
amination. Cadets completing the course will be

The education of men for the en-
gineering profession and experi-
mental research work for improve-
ment of industrial and economic
conditions in Florida is the two-
fold function of the College of En-
gineering headed by Dean Joseph
Several years ago, engineers ot
the Florida College's Engineerirng
and Industrial Experiment Station
devoted their time to wartime ma-
terials. but today attention is fo-
cused on such research projects as
the utilization of clay found in
Florida for various ceramic indus-
tries, production of tannin from
scrub oak, and tung oil uses.
The college program centers
on training upper division stu-
dents in the six different engi-
neering degrees which include
aeronautical, chemical, civil,
electrical, industrial and me-
chanical.. In addition to these
degrees given at the completion
of undergraduate course work,
the college also offers the pro-
fessional degree of engineer in
each of the six fields, as well as
a master of science in engineer-
ing to tltose completing gradu-
ate work and thesis.
Established by the State Legis-
lature in 1941, the engineering and
industrial experiment station di-
rected by Ralph A. Morgan has
placed special emphasis on new
products and the establishment of
new industries in Florida.
The completion of the sewage
disposal pilot plant for the Engi-
neering and Industrial Experiment
Station has given the researchers
a chance to conduct sanitary stud-
ies which will help the various cit-
ies of Florida. Housed adjacent to
the pilot is a well-equipped sani-
tary laboratory used for accurate
control and study. The complete
unit represents an investment of
Station Has Pioneered
The station has pioneered and
fostered in the preservation in
plastics of floWers and other spec-
imens. Included among present-
day research experiments are soil
stabilization, mildew and mold
control, insect repellents, solar
water heaters, a design for a fruit
juice concentrator, and evaluation
of Florida crude petroleum.
In return for all this specialized
training, the state of Florida
should secure benefits from the
work these men do in industry and
research after commencement, as
well as gain aid from them toward
building the state into a more
healthful, prosperous and attrac-
tive place to reside.

According to a cross-section poll
taken this week, many of the res-
taurants, cafeterias and dining
halls on and around the campus
are either strongly snubbing Tru-
man's proposals or are cooperat-
ing with the plan "only as much
as the students will allow."
The University Cafeteria, under
the management of W. P. Long,

ing in full with the plan. Long re-

Although several fraternities are
not enthusiastic about the mat-

are planning meatless Tuesdays
with the stipulation that meat
would be excluded from only one
meal that day. About 50 per cent
of the managers have accepted
the egglesss Thursday" theory.
One frat dining room manager
had bitter feelings toward the
government. He declared that "it
is senseless for the President to
ask the people to pull their belts
a little tighter while the govern-
ment is practicing wholesale de-
struction of food to keep prices
on an even keel. Our fraternity,"
he said, "will urge and observe
cooperation with the program
when and if the government prac-
tices what it preaches."

Plans For Special
Train To Tulane Are
Dropped By Hardee
it was learned yesterday from
C. J. Hardee, secretary of social
affairs for the student body, that
it has been deemed inadvisable for
the University to acquire a spe-.
cial train for the Florida-Tulanie
Hardee stated that 80 miles of
railroad track along the regular
coute to New Orleans is under-
going repairs. In order to travel
by train, it would be necessary to
go through Birmingham, Ala.,
which would take 24 hours and
ast approximately $25 per per.
;on for the round trip. Because of
:he length and price of the jaunt,
student Body President Crews and
lardee agreed that plans for the
-cursion should be dropped.
Hardee also had an announce.
ient to make about a similar plan
or the Miami game. He said that
since the Seaboard rate to Miami
was $17, or $5 more than the cost
of bus transportation, the trip by
rail would have to be eliminated
in this case. However,, an attempt
will be made to procure special
busses for the Miami sojourn. Har.
dee declared that the outcome of
negotiations with the bus 'conm.
pany will be announced next week
The social chairnian requested
that the students make known to
him their feelings concerning this
matter by leaving any suggestions
in his box at Florida Union.
