Collegiate Student Government in-
to a working organization has al-
ready received favorable replies
from many of the schools contact-
ed on the preliminary survey.
According to Harold S. Smith,
chairman of the committee, "the
general tenor is one of great
interest in the movement."
Smith states that the two most
serious problems facing other
schools in the Southeast are mak-
ing the Honor System work and
improving fraternity and inde-
pendent relationships. The Uni-
versity of Florida does not have
these problems, he says Florida's
system could serve as a basis for
solving them in other schools.
However, the U. of F. has other
problems concerning activities and
coed matters that could be solved
through help, from other schools.
The replies received by Smith in-
dicate that the University of
Florida will play host to the group

ably will be held next spring, pro-

MIAMI HERE WE COMIh is what some 750 Florida. students will
be yelling when they take off this morning for the Gators annual
clash with the downtrodden Miami 11, Hurricanes. This is the year that
most Florida students'feel the Gators will get back on the winning
train at the expense of Miami. Lst year we completely out played
the Oanes, but a long pass and a couple of bad breaks gave the viim-
Stor a 20-13 win over Florida's FighbtriI Gators, With Bobby Fn-'ir
Hal Griffin, Loren Broadus, Doug Belden, Billy Park&e and Chuck
Hunsinger doing the ball carrying we should geore at least thre6 times
in the Orange Bowl today. Our superb line of Tommy Bishop, Cliff
Stitton, Frank Dempsey, John Natyghak, Carlies Carver, Fletcher
Groves, Charlie FieldS, Ba.m Webster and Jimmy Kynes should give
the Hurfieane ball carriers a tough afternoon.
FLORIDA OUTPLAYED the Greon Wave of Tulane for three
periods of their clash lat Saturday, but just couldn't take advantage
of their chances t6 sore. TulMia put on a cor'l-- of ni(c ,-ror;nr drives
that were stopped by the fine Florida line, and then perrrd ,.n-a short
drive after a punt. Florida spent most of the afternoon in Greenie-
land, and then after the Wave had scored. came roaring back to score,
Son long run and a pass. If the Gators had taken advantage of their
-Chane they Sho6tld have scored a two touchdown win. However this
writer was Well sattisfied with the tie.
FLORIDA OVVER GEORGIA TECH would look pretty queer in
print If the &atos fmet the boys from Atlanta. if you believe in coinm-
paring scofes then Florida is eight points better than Teeh. Here is
the way it it figured. Tulane beat Alabama 21-20, Alabama, beat Tech
S14-7 nd the Oatore tied Tulane 7-7. Any way you figure it we are
one of the best ball Clubs in the south.
NEW YELLS ARE WANTED by the Pep Club for the cheering
at Florida football games, With out football team opening & fnew era
here t the. tmvtesity, the pep Club feels that new yells with more
spirit ate seeded. They are giving Cash awards to winning yells sub-
mitted. All yells should be turned in to the Pep Club at the Florida
Union desk a 9 soon as pren,';h,! No deadline has been set, but All you
Gato1rA hand in those yells SO We can really be on the ball.
CONGRATULATION8 to Orlando and St. Petersburg quatter-
bao clubs who this we6@k gave s vote of confidence to Coach Ray
Wolf and his staff. These two# groups gave Wolf a resounding vote of
their Confidence and recommended that the Board of Control continue
their policy and retain him for another three year period. This is
surely a step toward a greater Florida and a greater football team
here at the University. Nice going gentlemen and we appreciAte it

Lewis Vickers, president of
the Jr. I.F.C., has announced the
lirpose and plans for the year.
Along 'with the information is a
brief history of the organization.
'The' first Jr. Intrafraternity
Conference 'was founded In 1932

-trument to promote friendship
apd, cooparpti.on between the fra-
reriitles. During the war the or-
ganization was disbanded but be-
came active again last year. The
present Jr. IFC Is more independ-
ent than it has been in the past
because it operates as a separate
organize .an. The formulation
and execution of ideas are its own
but it receives the full backing
and' support of the IFC and mem-
ber fraternities when needed.
The membership of the Jr IFC
is composed of one-freshman rep-
i'reantative from ecah fraternity.
This program will tram men for
future IFC representatives and
the small membership will afford
each representative an excellent
opportunity to display his ability

plan for a waltz contest at the
Fall Frolics dances. Each frater-
nity may enter one couple to rep-
resent them. and to the winning
couple will go a loving cup and
also tothe fraternity which they
represent. If this plan is adopted
an announcement will be made

By Sandy Geer
Florida's Student Co-op gro-
cery is one year old. Just one year
ago, Nov. 21, 1946, the doors of
the store opened for the first time
and student-members of the co-
operative enterprise have been I
buying there ever since.
Looking back over a success-
ful year, Co-op President George
Kates told of the rapid growth in
members. Rising from, 285 mem-
bers in 1946 to the present total.
of 630, this growth is a good indi-
cation of the popularity of the
store's low prices and courteous

The statistics show that the ma-

Professor DeBruyn states that
in his judgment the morale and
enthusiasm of his singers is far

him since the pre-war years and
that the end of the current schol-

the benefit of a hospital and a
doctor through means of insur-

soap operas and -mystery plays.
The purpose of the Danish radio
is to entertain and to educate, not
to sell. I like it much better that
way. I believe it is the purpose
of the new' generation to make
improvements in both these fields,"

Arrived On Campus Four Years Before
Any Other Fraternity Housemother
By Roger Long
Possessing the distinction of .
being the housemother with the '
longest service in years to her
house is Mrs. William G. Mason. l
This gacious housemother hase .
served as hostess to 'Sigma Nu
fraternity for 16 years, four years
before the arrival of another i ,
housemother on' the campus.
A native of Florida, Mrs. Mason .
was born in Sumnmerfield, Flori-
da, of one of the state's pioneer
families. Later she attended the
University of'Florida, then located
at Lake City and called Blorida
Agricultural College. "Though the
school was smaller then, we had
just as much'fun as the students
do now,"' sheremarks smiling.
Through the many changes, she
has witnessed at the UniversitS
and in campus life, 'Mother' Ma-:
son has -been able to hold a steady, Mrs. Mason
guiding influence in the life of her

Of Campus Grounds
The Business Office announced
this week the appointment of Joe
M. Crevasse to the position of su-
perintendent of grounds for the
University. He succeeds Charles
E. Nelson, who retired from that
position on the first of November.
Crevasse comes to the campus
with a. background of experience
that should appeal to University
students. He was superintendent
of grounds at Florida State Uni-
versity (Florida State College for
Women when he was there) for
four years. He has been living in
Gainesville for the past two years.
This campus will be no stranger
to Crevasse. For six years he was
active in student affairs here. He
received his bachelor's degree in
1939 and went on to claim a mas-
ter's degree in agriculture in 1941.
Crevasse is a native of Tampa and
is a member of the Rotary, Ma-
sons and Elks Club.
The immediate goal of the
grounds department is to try and
hold the line while the campus is
in its present dug-up condition.
The University does have a long-
range intensive beautification pro-
gram, but very little can be hoped
for in the way of accomplishment
until the present construction pro-
gram starts levelling off.

Join The Fight For Needed Items
This is a strong recommendation. This
is an urgent request that other forces on
this campus join in the fight for certain
items which this campus needs in order
to continue growing into the largest Uni-
versity in the South.,
There are many things on the list. Why,
all departments around the campus have
long lists, hoping to get their needs fill-

This University is a city of over 13,000.
It is growing fast, and it is becoming one
of the leading universities in the nation.
It is at this crucial period in the life of
this University that a newspaper should
come up to its standards. We have felt
that the paper this year is not as good as
this campus deserves, despite the fact
that it is the largest paper since 1939. We
have attempted to become as powerful a
force on this campus as a newspaper

According to a survey made by the
University Press Association, startling
figures in the costs of college newspapers
throughout the South were discovered.
The Mississippian, the voice of the Uni-
versity of Mississippi similar to the Alli-
gator, prints a full-size, eight-page paper
(without flaps) for $180 a week at a
privately-owned plant. The Alligator can
print a eight-page paper (if it was possi-
ble without flaps) for $480.
The North Carolina Tarheel, a daily
paper at a school of 7,000 enrollment,
prints 32 full-size pages a week, publish-
ing every day except Monday. This same
paper issued a call that it needed a new
printing plant, and a printer brought in
two linotypes, a duplex rotary press, and
a fairly nice shop for only $24,000, and
it, too, is privately-owned.
A campus printing plant would con-
tinue to save the University as well as the
Florida Alligator, which is the students.
We again strongly urge all concerned to
make their interests known by joining in
Is 'ur Infirmary Policy Unjust?
A high officer of the University's Stud-
ent Government glanced our way this
week and stated that "crusading was all
right in a way, but that the paper did not
know what it was doing on the infirmary
deal" and that he didn't feel it was the
Alligator's editorial policy to be against
such a thing
The Alligator has assigned three stories
this year as far as the infirmary was con-
cerned. One was a feature story this sum-
mer giving praise and pictures of the good
Work being done. Another was a feature
for the homecoming edition, which stat-
ed that the infirmary was "doing a big
and vital job." The other one was last
week when a reporter covered a session
of a committee, termed by the executive
council as an investigations committee.
Other articles on the. infirmary appear-
ed through columns, two written by Odell
Griffith in "Bull Session" and through
thi "Letters to the Editor" column.
"he Alligator received a jolt this week
when the investigations committee-story
was blamed for using the word "investi-
We learned several things this past
week-that no matter how hard you do
a thing or the way you do it, you are mis-
understood by people who do not take the
time to understand what you are doing
or how you are doing it.
Hcre is our stand for those who would
like to know before issuing any terse
ei.ie'ercnts: We do not censor columns
aRi v.e don't intend to unless what 'is said
is p':colutely detriment to the school and
to the paper. We have one open-forum
col rnin where students can air their views
i:in tters to the editor. We do not intend
to throwv that column out of the paper.
'he Alligator's stand is that the infirm-
ar"- and its staff, though operating under
crowded conditions and often times fac-
ing bad luck as far as rumors are con-
cerned, deserve to be better understood,
and that the Alligator, in issues past, has
praised the infirmary and yet'has pointed
out a few weaknesses that were even dis-
cussed in the infirmary staff meetings
and later changed.
Just as the Alligator's policy was mis-
understood. so has been the infirmary.
For instance, the committee, after recom-
mending a certain item to the infirmary
heads, found out in a session with them
that the recommendation was already in
We ask the students: Has our policy
toward the infirmary been unjust? Do

soring columns and cutting out letters to'
the editor? We .don't think the students
do. Take it from us-this is our editorial
policy and we are standing for fairness
to all. *
We will publicize the facts-that in
three weeks' time, the infirmary handled
3,704 patient calls; that it charges $1.50
to $3.00 for X-rays that would cost $50
and up outside; that it served over 3,-
000 meals in three weeks; that its over-
worked staff-one of the best in the

As I See 'Em By n Wite
It is most distressing to we
journalists to find tovo of our
number constantly bickering and
dickering with one another. This
argument isn't constant, but one
of the gentlemen in question, one
Morton C. Freedman, seems to
have a knack for verbal tete-a-
tetes with other writers. Now a
lot of times Morton is wrong on
his views, but then again a lot of
times he's right. I shall not en-
deavor to say at this time just
when he's right or wrong.
Though some find fault with
columnists, arguing and fighting,
I think it shows that at least they
have two readers each oth-
You know, I think the Aiain
trouble with people not under-
standing the quips that are traded
back and forth by the boys are
that they don't understand the
boys themselves. Let me present
a biography of my good friend
Morton, up. to the present time.
Morton, like most other boys,
was born. Mr. and Mrs. Freedman
were putting on heirs, and they
called this one Morton. He wasn't
exactly a homely kid, but his
mother used to pull the baby car-
riage instead of push it so she
wouldn't have to look. in his face.
I Morton started pursuing an
education at an early age, and
has been pursuing ever since. He
went all the way through high
school and most of the way
through college, and hasn't a
thing to show for it except an
education. He is majoring in jour-
nalism now, and among his harder
subjects are "The Folding and De-
livery of the Newspaper," "How
to Read a Newspaper," and
Morton is now in the four-flush
of his youth. He isn't like most
boys of 28, 29 and 30. He is 25.
A few years ago, Morton de-
cided he wanted to try drahma.
So, he wrote a play with a couple
of friends of his. They called' the
play "Someone In The House."
There wasn't, so they closed in
Morton wrote awhile for the
Philadelphia Scoop-Poop. Morton
was a guest writer. He would
write and everyone would guess
what it was. However, after a
year, Morton gave up his position
on the paper because of something
the editor said to him. The exact
words were, "You're fired!"
Morton went back home to
Miami Beach, and his father told
him he should go far. In fact, he
stood out in the road and pointed
Morton then decided he would
try Hollywood. He met his two
friends out there, and the three
of them collaborated on a picture
while there. He held a guy while
they tattooed him.
One good thing about Morton
that everyone likes is the fact that
he can take a rib.' Especially if
there is meat on it.
Morton soon came to the Uni-
versity of Florida where he de-
cided on his future career. Jour-
nalism is in his blood. In fact, he
cut his finger the other day and
printer's ink came out. It was
while at the University that Mor-
ton found his first feud. That was
with Jack Doherty, editor of the
Orange Peel. Morton said that
Jask wasn't qualified to going of-
fice. Everyone listened. Jack went
However, let it be known that
Morton Freedman has done his
share towards making the jour-
nalistic works around the campus
a more exciting pastime. He is a
bulwark of truth and idealism. He
has a bulk of knowledge. In fact,
let's just say he's quite a bulk.
Morton is on a. diet now, I hear.
When Morton C. Freedman
leaves the University, his mark
will be left, never fear. And all
the blow-torches in the world
won't get it off!

its fair share of entertaining mo-
ments. Rex Harrison is superb as
Stephen Fox, the roguish gambler,
and Maureen O'Hara is as beau-
tiful, as ever in a role that is en-
tirely different from those she is
accustomed to playing.
The picture has one or two dull
moments, but these are quickly
forgotten by the fast-paced action
that follows. For those who like
their fare a little on the heavy

Reviews And Stuff By Gerald Clarke
Whie glancing through col-
lege papers from all over the
country, I've been impressed bv
an item which turns up repeated-
ly. A seems that every little col-
lege between here and Seattle has
had or is arranging a showing of
th movie "Henry V." Although
the showing of the falnou. British
film on college campuses through-
out the country shouldn't rate
much of a mention as such, I do
think it does demand a little
space because of its broader im-
"Henry V" is a famous motion
picture. I't has received some of
the most laudatory reviews ever
given to any example of what
must be called the cinema art.
Everyone is acquainted with the
reputation of the picture and that
of its well-known script writer
(one who will probably not be
investigated by anyone's congress-
inonal committee). The film is
eminently successful. T h e r e
seems to be not one dissenting
note in the chorus of critical ac-
claim. Not only that the pic-
ture has aleo lived up to the ex-
pectations which the reviewers
created i.n thlei readers' minds.
Although I haven't seen the film
myself, I do know of many peo-
ple who have, and who have come
back as enthusiastic as the critics.
It just doesn't happen that way
very often. The snper-critical say
it is an excellent film. Those not
so critical, and some who are not
at all impressed by readings of
Shakespeare, also give the pic-
ture their hearty approval. Ev-
eryone seems to agree that it is
great entertainment. To my
knowledge the thing has been a
commercial success everywhere it
has been shown. All this speaks
well for the Olivier screening.
One wonders._ considering the
picture's remarkable success, why
University of Florida audiences
haven't had a chance to see it.

three million dollar hit has at

long, it began a five-day run,

BEST YEARS won almost all
of the important Oscars present-
et at the annual Academy Award
function. It was acclaimed as the
best picture shown during 1946.
Frederic March received an Os-
car as best actor for his work in
the film. Harold Russell, handless
veteran, was voted best support-
ing. actor for his interpretation
of the sailor, Homer Parrish. He
was also given a special award
commending his own personal
courage and integrity.
Producer Goldwyn received his
first hunch from a cut appearing
in a 1944 TIME. The magazine
showed a group of homecoming
Marines leaning out the windows
of a train coach on which had
been chalked "Home Again!"
This gaye him the idea for a story
of the mixed emotions shared bi

Editor Note: Even before writing the editorial in last week's
paper, we realized the complaints students were making concerning
the pictures for the 1948 Seminole. In fact, several of our staff made
great efforts to take off (sometimes a couple of hours) to have their
pictures taken and they, too, go on the list of the "untaken."
One reason, we feel, for the huge number of students not having
pictures taken was that many felt it would be as it had been in the
past, that deadlines would be extended and that there was really no
big rush. The Seminole means business this year, even though it had
not worked out a good enough system and organizations for having
pictures taken before the lid was clamped down.
To Gunter: The Florida Alligator carried articles, notices, and
hold face boxes-sometimes as many as three In one issue. In Sept.
'26 edition, we ran a two-column, three-line head, "ith a complete
story, complete schedule, and even a picture, or map of the campus,
and how to get to the building. A bold face notice appeared next, and
hen in Oct. 10 edition, there was a complete schedule for the week
to come, as well as a big box, entitled, "Attention All Organizations
and Frats." Oct. 17, a big headline stated: "Oct. 31 set as, picture

To Billby and Bird: See above. And those are good suggestions.
