Requests Fraternities To
Cooperate In Raising
By Kytle Williams
In an address to fraternity men
and women on campus Monday
night, Dr. J. Hills Miller, presi-
dent of the University, stressed
improved scholastic achievements
of the students of this school, as
one of the important steps toward
attainment of higher goals for the
Speaking to a group of over 1,-
800, the President stated that
fraternities are an integral part of
this educational institution and,
as such, are in a position to help
the University achieve its goals.
Fraternities can best help in this
respect by a more careful selec-
tion of prospective members with
regard to their scholastic abilities
and achievements, he said. With
this base, deeper application to
studies will result in higher grade
averages, Miller declared, and bet-
ter over-all comprehension of
those courses studied.
With such achievements on the
part of such a large segment of
the student body, the academic
standards will be raised greatly
and serve to pave the way for the
raising of the whole academic
position of the University into di-
rect competition with the largest
and best educational institutions
of this country, said President
Dr. Miller, in concluding his ad-
dress, called for "an academic rat-
ing second to none other in this
great land. When youth deter-
mines a course of action," he said,
"99 per cent of the time it will
move toward that goal. I call upon
this group to meet that challenge."

attained nation-wide status, with
establishment on Stetson Univer-

Fred Owen, Jr., commander of
the Student Veterans' Association

Ghiotto from Dick Cooper, Stetson
leader of student veterans, who
has also been named state confer-

Organization can be fully effected,
it was stated.
The new; veterans' movement is
an outgrowth of a meeting held
at the DeLand institution last
weekend, when members of the
Florida congressional delegation
addressed representatives of vet-
erans' groups from colleges all
over the state, who came together,
seeking a means to secure a hike
in their GI subsistence checks.
Following the convention, and the
nation-wide publicity it received,
Stetson veterans were besieged
with letters and telegrams from
colleges all over the country who
wished to participate.
Meanwhile, on the University of
Florida campus, local veterans'
groups immediately swung into
action. The American Veterans
Committee, at its regular session
Monday night, announced plans
for a comprehensive cost-of-living
survey, to include all Florida stu-
dent veterans and to commence

until a gymnasium can be built
for the women, and the wooden
one might be converted into a rec-
reation hall and be used "some-
thing like the 'tin can' at North

The Florida ALLIGATOR is
sponsoring a contest open to all
students and alumni of the Uni-
versity of Florida in order to find
a name for the huge new gymna-
sium which will house the College
of Physical Education, Health
and Athletics. This is the first
time in the history of the Univer-
sity that the student body is be-
ing given the chance to name a
Completion of the gym is slated
for about February, 1949.
Dean D. K. Stanley has empha-
sized that the name for the new
1,500,000 structure will not neces-
sarily be one of those submitted
by the students, since the Board of
Control will make the final decis-
ion and the names suggested by
the students may not conform
with those held by the board. But,
he said, "Because the building will
be used by such a tremendous
number of students in a large va-
riety of ways, I feel that the stu-
dent body must be given a chance
to express its ideas on the build-
ing's name." He hinted, however,
that the board is very likely, es-
pecially if the contest reveals a
favorable amount of student in-
terest, to accept one of the stu-
The dean advised the conceiv-
ing of a name which would be
typically Floridian and yet one
which would carry a certain
amount of dignity. He reminded
would-be namers that if the
structure is to be named for a
prominent person, that person
must be deceased.
A suitably worthy award will
be given the student who submits
a name acceptable to the Board
of Control. Stanley said that his
office hasn't yet decided whether
the prize will be in the form of a
cup, cash or some other award.
Names should be turned in, to
.te ALLIiATOR office; reom
there they will go to Dean Stan-
ley, who will turn them over to
President Miller, finally ending
in the hands of the Board of Con-
trol for consideration. In case of
duplication in the names, the first'
entry will be the one considered.

' Honor System Is
Violated In Trading
Of Activity Boo s
s By Bob Lewis
What's the story behind the giv-
ing away of student activity books
to outsiders? What is the im-
portance of the various rumors ?
What should the students of the
University of Florida do about
it? What is the opinion of the
Honor Court ? In answer to the
above questions, the Honor Court
has made some announcements.
It has recently been brought to
the attention of the Honor Court
by the Athletic Association that
the practice of giving away and
selling of Florida student activity
books by the student themselves
for the athletic events, should be
stopped. The Honpr Court has ex-
pressed sympathy with the Ath-
letic Association's belief that it
isn't right for students to give
their books to persons not attend-
ing the University, especially to
students of other colleges and
"We have a good Honor System
at the University of Florida," says
Dick Broome, chancellor of the
Honor Court, and we should
stdengthen and uphold it. Many
students don't realize the detri-
mental effects of giving their
books away," he says. Selling of
activity books according to
Broome, is a federal offence, it
violates the federal amusement
tax placed on football game tic-
kets. Secondly, it is a practice that
is only cheating the students
themselves, he said. Estimates of
student seating and the space
required for a reserve section,
which the Athletic Association
makes before each game, are dis-
Try to cooperate more exten-
sively with the wishes of the
Athletic Association and the stu-
dent Honor Court, asks Broome.
If your activity book isn't going to
be used for one of the athletic
events hold on to it, for it is the
only pass to all athletic affairs

Board, Pen Gaines, secretary of

The board consists of leading
students on the campus, and is

Members are formulating out-

speakers are to be any students

to speak before a home town high

Three main points are to be em-
phasized in the speeches. Student
speakers should try to: (1) famili-
arize the high school students
planning to attend the University
with the general set-up of the
University as to student govern-
ment, the Honor Code, etc.; (2)
to present a report of the Univer-
sity and its growth and, (3) to

The University of Florida de-

all opposition in the third All-

By virtue of the fact that no
other affirmative team had won

four out of five frays, the top af-

Each one of the 48 debaters
present at the tourney was given
an individual score for each de-
bate. From the cumulative scores
the best individual debater of the
tournament was chosen. The four
Florida men topped the field of
48 and were ranked: Gordon, first;
Westin, second; Castagna, third,
and Klein, fourth., Some five oth-
er speakers from various schools
tied for fifth place.
Dr. Wayne C. Eubank, varsity
debate director, summed up the
outstanding Florida victory with
these words: "The Gator squad's
performance at the All-Southern
tournament was one of those hap-
penings that we dream about but
never really expect to occur. The
debating done by the affirmative
and negative teams in the final
debate was unbelievably smooth
for this early in the season."
Florida Vs. Florida
As all other schools were de-
feated by Florida, the affirmative
team met the negative team to de-
cidethe championship. Klein and
Westin (negative) received a 2 to
1 decision over the affirmative duo
of Castagna and Gordon. In team

first and second. ,

Support Of Blood Bank
Is Requested By
By Fran White
Dean Stanley of the 'College of
Physical Education, Health and'
Athletics yesterday appealed tc
the student government to sup-I
port the Alachua County Medical
Association in its project for
starting a blood bank here.
He said, "If the student govern-
ment will go on record as approv-
ing the bank and will cooperate
in this project, perhaps the stu-
dent body will get more informa-
tion as to what to do because
there is no doubt as to its value.
"I l~ow," Dean Stanley went
on to say, "that the response will
be good, because we have already
had a good response. There have
been several occasions in the past
when a call for blood donors was
sent over the radio for an injured
student .who needed blood badly.
The response was so great that
we had to call' the radio to ask
them to quit sending donors."
A drive is now going on in
Alachua County for the estimated
$5,000 needed for the project. Pro-
ceeds from the annual Sigma Nu-
Phi Delta Theta charity football

Rev. George Alexander, chair-
man of the. blood bank steering
committee appointed by Alachua
County Hospital staff, has an-
nounced that there is temporary
space available in a .spare room
at the county hospital. In addition
to the space requirement it will
be necessary to have a refriger-
ator, processing unit, a small air
conditioning unit, plus stenograph-
ic assistance, a trained technician
and part-time maid service.
When blood is donated to the
bank, it will be processed and
stored. When the doctor draws on
the bank for a transfusion, the pa-
tient is charged $10 processing fee,
but receives the blood itself free
provided a relative or friend re-
places the blood. If the blood, is
not replaced, a charge of $25 is

Vet Student Doesn't Care For
Waiting; Builds Own Home
Lack Of Experience Small
Matter To Larkin
By Bill Pepper
A four-room bungalow for the
price of a cheap automobile is a
possibility for any University vet-
eran according to the experience
of T. A. Larkin, 25-year-old pre-
Larkin, faced in July 'with a
six-month wait for Flavet hous-

$1,400-and a lot of hard work
on hit own part.
a Four Rooms In Six Weeks
A former ensign in Naval Avi-
ation, Larkin received his dis-
charge late in July of this year,
and began constructing his four-
room 20x30 house north of Gaines-
ville a few days later.
The house, located three doors'
south of the Glen Springs Road
and one block east of Ninth St.,
was ready for occupancy only a
month and a half later.
When Larkin and his wife and
small daughter, Nancy, moved in,
in September, the house was com-
plete, except for the interior walls.
These partitions will be put up
later when the rock wood material
Larkin plans to use becomes avail-
Larkin said this week he had
had no experience in constructing
homes before he started his own,
and so chose a simple rectangular
design with a one-piece roof. This
facilitated construction and elim-
inated many complicated con-
Foresight Saved Cost
Using limestone block obtained
from nearby Ocala, Larkin got a
cheaper building material than its
concrete counterpart. He said that
the block type of construction,
when laid on a rectangular floor
plan such as his, was extremely
simple and merely involved laying
the blocks to the desired height.
Working from sunrise to sunset
every day, Larkin completed his
house before the fall term began.
He saved by cutting corners in
construction costs. To provide win-
dows suitable for the house, Lar-
kin laid regular 5x3 casings on
their side. This also saved the
cost of buying two smaller win-

Monday morning, as the day
dawned cool and cloudy, James
E. Armstrong, Bradenton, and
Huber H. Furr and James R. Wil-
son, Jacksonville, were casually
headed for refreshments' across
the street from the campus.
Suddenly a commotion caught
their eyes. A huge four-legged
cat with long whiskers had at-
tacked a baby squirrel! Quickly,
the boys sized up the situation.
Knowing that any false move
would be fatal to the small squir-
rel, they plotted their strategy.
Cautiously they approached the
infidel cat from three sides. The
cat couldn't possibly escape with
the squealing squirrel. On three
sides of him were the heroes. On
the other side was the brick wall
of Buckman Hall. Armed with
clubs, bricks, a .45 automatic,
three gas masks and an M-1 tank,
our heroes attacked!
Armstrong, the biggest of the
three, grabbed the cat by the tail.
Wilson, coming, up on the right
flank, caught the feline with a
scissors grip on the mouth. Furr,
still bringing up the rear, 'was

Seminole Explains Photo Situation
To the Student Body:
We suppose most of the students
are wondering just who the real
blame for the lack of individual
pictures in the Seminole should
fall on. So-we guess it's about
time we "fessed up" and told you
We started working on the Sem-
inole staff as photography man-
agers about a week after the pho.
tographer had started work. Under
the original setup the photograph-
er was supposed to take 125 sit-
tings a day. (By the way, if you'll
do a little quick calculating you'll
notice thaabout y about ,600 stu-
dents could have had their pictures
taken in the six weeks he was con-
tracted for.) At the time we took
over there had been about 35 pic-
tures made in five days.
Needless to say, that really put
us behind the eight ball. Those
first weeks were for senior pic-
tures -and after all they are the
most important individual pictures
in an annual. By the time the sen-
iors were finished we had begun
to catch up a little on the sched-
ule. We think we finally ended
with about 700 individual senior
pictures. (The hurricane and pow-
er failure didn't help either.)
Then came the fraternities and
the trouble really began. We'll
have to admit that we really foul-
ed things up there. We wrote,
called, or went to see each fra-
ternity, but usually at a fairly
late date. When we finished the
fraternities we were exactly on
Again for the independents we
fouled up the works. There was a
notice published in the Alligator
as to the days allotted to each
class. We also went out, the two
of us, and almost got writer's
cramp putting notices on the
blackboards. We told everyone we
saw about the pictures being tak-
en and tried our darndest to get
the word passed around, but it
just wasn't enough. We didn't
think till much too late in the
game about using the sound
Anyhow, there's your story. We
will say one thing, though-we

tion plenty of pictures could have

Exciting semi-final games cli-
maxed the fraternity league touch
football program this week as the
winners in all but one of the four
brackets were determined.
In the Orange League the Phi
Delts, winner of Bracket I, will
be matched against the KAs,
Bracket II winner. In a game
Thursday the KAs continued to I
show the strength they had ex-
hibited all season as they downed
a strong Sigma Chi club 18-0. The
KAs outclassed the SXs all the f
way as they gained six first downs
to the losers' two.
Phi Delts Win
To decide the winner of the oth-
er bracket the Phi Delts met the
SAEs Monday and beat them by
the close score of 7-6. The SAEs
held the lead in the game until
the last five minutes when Bryon
Pell threw a long pass to JimI
Scott to set up the winning score.
The catch made by Scott was one
of the fanciest seen in an intra-
mural contest at the University.
On the third play Scott threw a
pass for the touchdown, then
clinched the game by scoring the
extra point. The SAE touchdown
was set up by a series of short
passes and was scored on a pass
from Sebring to Wilkinson.
The Phi Delts will meet the
KAs in the finals on Florida Field
next Tuesday at 4:30.
In the Blue League the winner
of Bracket I was decided by a
close contest between the Phi Taus
and the Pi L.ams Monday. The
Phi Taus won the game 14-12. The
Pi Lam scores were both made on
pass plays. The first was made
on a pass from Hi Margol to Nath
Wilson and the second was on a
pass interception by Sam Silber-
stein on the Phi Tau ten yard line.
The PLPs failed to convert for
either extra point.
Phi Taus Score
The first Phi Tau score was
made by a pass from H. E. Rich-
ards. to Otis Bice with the extra
point made on a pass from Rich-
ards to Al Pope. For the second
score Jackie McCown blocked a
Pi Lam kick and Al Pope fell on
it over the goal for the score. The
extra point was made on a pass
from Richards to Pope.
In other games played this week
the Sigma Chis, sparked by the
passing of Bill Fleming, downed
a strong Delta. Tau Delta team
13-0 and the TEPs scored a 12-6
victory over the Delta Sigs.
The finals in both leagues will
be played on Florida Field Tues-
day and Wednesday of next week

of the two leagues meet for a

sure the team of a good attack at
those positions. The same strength
is reflected in the guard positions,
with Lamar Bridges and Julian
Miller returning to those posts.
The team is well rounded out by
Hans Tanzler, six foot four inch

of last year and making a good
preseason appearance. Plenty of

Offensive drills have been a little
loose to date, but steady improve-

been especially sharp which should
mean some fast high scoring
games during the coming season.
There are six reserve forwards
including Savage, Kimbrough, and
four new comers in Cornell, Fill-
ingam, Johnson, and Pearlmnan.
The guard positions are equal in
depth with Altee, Jones, Jaycox,
Morgan Falsone, and Stanland.
In any event the team should be in
good spirit and shape for the first
game of the season with the Uni-
versity of Tanpa on December 3,

will be a good indication of their
real strength as Tampa is always

To Play Their Final
Game For Gators
By Steve Grimes
With the sound of the timekeep-
er's final gun late next Saturday
afternoon, Florida football will
come to an end for the year 1947.
Endeavoring to conclude on a fav-'
orable note, the 'Gators hope to
great the home town fans to a vic-
tory over Kansas State College.
This will mark the first time
hat these two schools have met on
he gridiron. Last year neither
eam was able to record a victory.
By some adroit schedule-making
the authorities conceived a way by
which that situation should not re-
cur again. In nine games to date
.his year, the Wildcats from Man-
hattan, Kansas, have so far, dupli-
cated last year's record. However,
the Gators, have defeated North
Carolina State, Furman, and the
University of Miami, and tied
another game with Tulane. On the
basis of these statistics, Florida
should enter the game as favorites
to hand the Wildcats their 26th
straight defeat in collegiate com-
Played Good Ball
In fairness to Kansas State, it
may be noted that the Wildcats
have played some good ball
against .some better opposition.
Probably their best showing re-
sulted in a close 14-7 defeat at the
hands of Nebraska, a perennial
midwestern powerhouse. At the
first of the current season the
coaching reins at Kansas State
were taken over by Sam Francis,
whom .ardent pigskin followers
may remember, as an All-American
backfield star at Nebraska in 1936.
Hoping to salvage a least one vic-
tory in his first year, Francis is
certain to have his Wildcats snarl-
ing by game-time. Most of the
Wildcat's offensive strength lies in
their two quarterbacks, Bill
Church and Dan Atkins. Church,
who passes from the T formation,
has been one of the leading aerial
artists In the Big Six Conference
all year. Atkins compares with
some oi the brighter Gator stars,
in that he shines in receiving kick-
offs and punts, several of which,
he has returned the entire dis-
The Karisas State game will
mark the swan song for at least
three Florida gridders. Guard,
Charlie Fields; tackle, Paul Mor-
tellaro; and end, Joe Chesser, will
carry the banner of the Orange
and Blue for the last time, come
Should the Gators win this final
game of the year, they will have
a- posted a record four wins, five
losses, and one tie. In light of the
fact that they dropped their first
three games of the season, this de-
rotes a remarkable comeback, and
carried over to next year, may in-
dicate bigger things to come.
John Natyshak, left tackle, is
hailed as "Big John" by team-
mates. He comes from Youngs-
town, Ohio, is 20 years old, 6'3",
and springs the scales at 235
pounds. John, lettered in football

Which One Of These Is You?
'This is a story of four students who
have already gone from this campus. This
is how they look back on the days you
are living in now. This is what they say
about those days in which you are daily
wondering how they will turn out. Per-
haps their regrets may be of some help.
Which one of them is you ?
"Yes, sir. I'd like to say what I regret.
I was a little self-conscious. I used to be
sincere anyway, and I'll never regreat
that part of it. But my buddies used to
beg me to go up to the show or out to eat
or dine. I always told them I had to study.
I was going to the University to get an
education, and 1 did not see anything in
the meetings at the college soda fountain,
the session in front of Peabody, or the
dances. I saw students hit each other on
the back and recall good old times. Now
that I'm older, I see'the same schoolmates
meet up and discuss the same old times.
I wish I could go back to your-campus
and make up for those mistakes."
"Yes, Sir, I'd like to say what I re-
gret. I didn't think that working on the
Seminole, Orange Peel or the Alligator
had anything to do with my major, or
that student government could ever
play a part in my life later on. I gladly
read each publication and read about
the elections, but I didn't really know
what was going on. I did manage to get
into bull sessions and go to shows and
slip by my grades, but I did miss out a
lot by not participating in the things
that now I wish I knew about. I wish I
could go back to your campus and
make up for those mistakes."
"Yes, Sir, I'd like to say what I regret.
I tried to think up ways and means of do-
ing the least possible work in all by class-
es and activities. I laughed at the poor
souls working late at night in Florida
Union or over a test-tube in chemistry
building or having to slave in the library
to work over themes when I could get last
year's paper from my room-mate. I went
to classes telling myself that I had only
two to go and I would be through for an-
other week-end. I would keep looking at
my watch and counting the minutes. I
thought the professors were all dull and
I was in a hurry for something else. Now
I find that.I can't get out of that habit.
I'm not satisfied. I want to go to other
things. I'm always in ,a hurry, too
much of a hurry to enjoy life. I wish I
could go back to your campus and make
up for those mistakes."
"Yes, Sir, I'd like to say what I re-
gret. I thought perhaps I would make a
big thing out. of my college career. I
mapped out all the organizations I
wanted to try out for. I thought about
the Glee Club, the Debators, the Flor-
ida Players. I had a lot of ambition to
put into making my life a public one.
However, all of it was intention and no
actual work. Now, I'm always disgust-
ed when I see a play, or hear some of
my friends sing. I'm envious and want
to be in their shoes. I wish I could go
back to your campus and make up for
Now, this is typical. One of these may
be you. This is the time to measure your-
self, see what's lacking, give out with
thanksgiving for all you do have, and
make a resolution that none of these will
be your case.
The Three "P's" To Live For
Many Florida students are aspiring for
greater heights in press and politics.
Many of them are laying foundations
here on this campus in the way they will
run the affairs of the state in years to
come. Many of them will actually be di-
recting policies of the city, counties and
It is now that open-minded, above-
board habits should be formed. It is with
a discouraged feeling, however, that we
notice the bargaining and the crooked
deals being formed on this campus, pri-
marily to aid one's prestige, pocketbook
or power. We do not endorse any of that
and we will do all in our power to fight
it wherever it is discovered.
Senator Claude Pepper had three "P's"
to place before all young men entering
',into government and press. In one of his
most dynamic speeches, Pepper' spoke on
free government and free press, and pav-
ed the way for some serious thought in
lasting government. His three goals in-
clude: principle, prosperity, and peace.
Fairness and honesty in press and poli-
tics was probably the keynote at the joint
session of the Florida Intercollegiate
Press Association and the Florida Inter-
collegiate Student Government Associa-
tion held last week-end in DeLand, and
which had Senator Pepper, Fuller War-
ren, and J. D. Penninkamp as speakers.
Warren presented the delegates with
high standards of thought to keep ever
before them. It would pay each Florida
delegate to cut those ideas right in his
mind for future reference, and not let
pressure and the desire for greater pres-
tige erase from the standards, the goals
being worked for-to benefit people with
whom you have never even shook hands,
to construct a better government for the
highest principles of good.
Word from the St. Petersburg Junior
College claims that the Wooden Horse,
the college's newspaper, is still subject
to censorship by the administration.
That was reported at last year's con-
vention held here at the University, and
items originated here to all Florida pap-
ers denouncing such action.
Other intrusions since then by the ad-
ministration at this West Coast college
came through a report by the administa-
tion that "because the school's honor
system has failed to function properly,"
student government would be discontinu-
ed at that institution.
Florida can be forever proud of its
honor code, its government, and for free
press, the biggest asset to the other two.
This editorial department strongly urges
all to join with the resolution of the con-
vention and wipe out cessorship from all
colleges in Florida, and keep the Florida
press forever free.
As Warren stated, free government
would never remain without free press,
and free press without free government.
These, we have to uphold. /
Remember to substitute Principle,
Prosperity and Peace for Pocketbook
Prestige and Power.

if he were trying to speak with
the authority of his office, which
we suspect, then perhaps he and
his comrades might take a bit of
advice: Tend to the business of

The Alligator is a student news-
paper, not a publication to air the
favorable propaganda of -depart-
mental heads. The school is sup-
ported by taxes collected through-
out the state. Not only the stu-
dents but also the taxpayers have
a perfect right to know where and
how their money is being spent.
And the Alligator has been more
than fair in any criticism it has
offered; in fact, we feel that a
portion of the publication's inde-
pendence has almost been sacri-
ficed in going out of the way to
present the administrators in a
We admire Pen Gaines for tell-
ing these antagonists of a con-
structively critical press that he
is not going to censor stories or
columns. Despite the hungry long-
ings of some of these thin-skinned
characters, who would do better
back on the farm than in posi-
tions where public money is spent,
the press of the students and the
state won't be gagged. If censor-
ship is ever invoked here-and we
don't believe it will be as long as
student journalists have one iota
of spine-then there will be found
column space elsewhere to voice
the criticisms and the construc-

characters will thunder if he

We've seen them in both positions.
They aren't particularly impres-
sive in either.'
Some of these characters have
been at the public trough so long
until they feel they not only have
complete authority-free of criti-
cism-in their own positions but
also have the patrician's toga re-
quired for telling other people how
to run their jobs. Let these char-
acters roar. Newspapermen don't
scare that easily. We contend that
some of these constrictive individ-
uals have been blocks in the prog-
ress of education in the state of
Florida. And we'll predict that
they will in time be called to ac-
count. The gods of public opinion
grind slowly. But these gods also
grind exceedingly small.

there is an awful thin line between some explanation and some mis-

Your frightened attitude about the football team criticism indi-

Well, yes, I am. However, after

as the basis for an assignment.
That's what it did. The boys in a

However, I feel that I shall be
safe from the prosecuting gnashes
of the citadel of journalism on

That's easy. I have hired for my
defense a man that needs no intro-
duction. Therefore, I shall not in-
troduce hipi. This gentleman once
planned to go into law, that's why
I hired him for my defense.
The reason he went into law
was because he heard that beer
came in cases. However, after two
days, he had to give it up. He
was the only guy that was ever
swayed by a jury.

keep this fellow's name a secret.
He is well-known on the campus.
His name is Harold Herman. If

Harold proved to be a good law-

Herman yelled that he would ap-
peal to the Supreme Court. I told
him that the Supreme Court al-
ready had a Peel. He advised me
that that wasn't the kind of ap-
peal he was referring to.
Harold appealed to the Supreme
Court. Meanwhile, I sweated it
out in the caboose. Finally, I was
called before that astute body.
