Baby Photo Winner
By Gerald Clarke
Judges for the ALLIGATOR's
"Baby Gator Photo Contest" tore
their hair as 115 cute baby pic-
tures tore at their hearts, but they
finally came to the winner. After
a long period of indecision, Lynda
Jean Carr, nine-months-old daugh-
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Lyndell 0.
Carr, Flavet III, was declared
"'University Baby of the Year."
The baby will be presented at
Friday night's Frolics dance and
will receive her award. Other prize
winners will be present.

Quota Of 50 Cents

Announcement has been made
by Jack Humphries, chairman of
the 1947 Campus Christmas Seal
Drive, that the sale of Christmas
Seals has begun, and will close

Through the facilities of this
Association almost every student
on campus received a chest X-ray
during registration. The success
of the drive this year will help
to make the chest X-ray a per-

Sales representatives are being
appointed in each dormitory sec-
tion and in fraternity and sorority
groups as well as some of the
larger living groups around cam-
pus. These representatives will
call on most of the students with-
in the next few days, and ask
their cooperation in buying Christ-
Quota Per Student
Because of the difficulty in con-
tacting off-campus students plans
are being made to set up a booth
at Florida Union. The quota has
been set by Humphries at 50
cents per student. Everyone is
urged to cooperate and to buy his
share of Christmas seals. '
Last year, Bob Brookes, Man-
go, and Jack Humphries, Jackson-
ville, were co-chairman of the
drive. Five hundred and ninety
three dollars worth of seals were
sold which compared favorably
with the $53 worth of seals sold
the year before. With the increas-
ed enrollment and increased con-
sciousness of the program of the
Tuberculosis Association, it is
expected that this year's contribu-
tion will exceed anything previ-
ously collected on this campus.

Fall Frolics, Florida's greatest social weekend hits

the state's loveliest lassies will arrive in Gainesville for the
three day festivities starring Jimmy Dorsey, the man with

Of Frolics Date
Gee, I really made a mistake
when I wore that d- girdle for
the bus trip from Miami. I felt
like Kate Smith in an Esther Wil-
liams swim suit. But I wanted to
make a good impression. And I
would have except that my girdle
slipped just as I stepped off the
bus. Both my nylons fell. Then
when I leaned over to pull them
up, my suitcase popped open and
the book that mama gave me hit
the pavement. Was I embarrassed
when Johnny saw the title: "How
To Say No Nicely."
We had supper at a place called
the "Prim Rose." Johnny said that
it is the meeting place for all
preachers, politicians, lady libra-
rians, and students-on-a-splurge.
The hostess was going to seat us
in the back room but Johnny re-
fused. He said that no one would
know we were there. We moved
to a table by the window. I put
my hat back on (the one with the
red ostrich feathers) and I don't
think anyone missed seeing us.
We went by the Alligator office
before Johnny brought me back
.here. I have never seen so many
people jammed in such a small
room. It looked like an over-
crowded USO. Johnny wanted
me to see his desk but it had
been moved to the Seminole room.
So had his typewriter. I was not
surprised to find out that a girl
does the joke column. I told her
a few good ones I had heard. They
will be in next week's paper. Oh,
yes! I met'a nice boy named Ted
Shurtleff but I told him that I
wouldn't want to late-date. Be-
sides, I probably won't be home
by 3 in the morning.
I am thrilled about being one
of the beauty contestants! I hope
that my evening dress does its
work.. It has the new "plunging
neckline." It is backless and the
skirt is slit up past the knee on
both sides. It is strapless, too.
Quite a gown!
If I play my cards right, I may
be an engaged woman when this
weekend is over. After all, I can't
go on working all my life. I wish
I knew exactly what type Johnny

GAIETY NOW, THOUGH.
Early Frolics Had Bands
But Not As Much Gaiety
Big Event Has Seen Many Name-Bands;
Lots Of Good-Looking Vocalists
By Hugh Stump
Once again Fall Frolics time
rolls around to the campus and
gaiety reigns in the hearts of fra-
ternity men. All the subdued
craving for entertainment comes
to the surface during the frolic-
In the old days (1935-38), there
wasn't as much publicity and to-
do about this particular week-
end. There were the famous bands
and all the pretty girls all the
time, but the boys didn'+ seem to
care as much for the frivolity
they evidently do now. The stu-
dents in those days went in for
a great deal of study. Vell, a lit-
tle bit anyway.
In the past the Fall Frolies has
been held during the first week-
end of December, as continues to
be the custom. A big name band
usually Is asked to play for the
dances and concert. Some really
famous names have been at the
University, too. For instance, Lea
Brown at last year's Frolics and
Harry James at the Spring Frol-
ics. In 1942 Will Osborne and his
band played here.
A Good Looker
Most of the bands which played
here featured vocalists, and some
of them were realUX enAioal,
at least in looks. Sultry Marianne
who sang in Osborne's band was
perhaps the most publicized of
them all in that day.
Back 10 years ago there were
so many huge dances and balls
that Fall Frolics didn't get too
much emphasis. Lately, however,
it has become one of the biggest
affairs during the year, and the
biggest social event of the first
The concert was started in the
swing version in 1941, as was the
increase in the sale of tickets
when Uncle Sam's luxury tax
went into effect. That was the
year Sonny D'unham was hero.
Back in 1938 it was Dick Himber,
who was at the top of the field
at the time.
Frolics is always characterized
by the fraternities going all-out
to show their beautiful guests the
best of a swell time. Each fra-
ternity usually puts on its own
entertainment apart from that
supplied by the IFC. Picnics,
masquerade dances and skits
head te list.
From all indications, this year
will not be among the years in
which some say that they didn't
have such a good tiPue. Just the

industrial, economic and agricul-
tural research for the state and

dent government and the high
calibre of its teaching and re-
2. Recognize the challenge of
building a University that. will
hold its own among the best in
the nation, with the ful- realiza-
tion that the University would be
far in- advance of its present sta-
tus had it more generous support
in the past.

needs of a University designed
for three or four thousand, now

Hurricane Hal Stoppc
Gator Cagers Win Opener
J Jim Scott Leads
W& 1 0 & 1.
A FINE RECORD was recorded by the Gator gridders
this season especially after the poor start they got off to.
After dropping their first three games they came right
back in fine style and copped four out of their next seven
and tied one for a season total of four wins, five defeats
and one tie. Our worst beating came at the hands of North
Carolina, but even in that game the Gators made a battle
f it after the Tarheels had grabbed a 21 point early lead.
GEORGIA PASSED the Gators into submission, but
'ven then the Florida boys were in the ball game until the
closing minutes when an intercepted pass and some'beauti-
ful chunkin by Johnny Rauch gave the Bulldogs two fast
tallies. One of the Gators best games was their 14-6 de-
feat at the hands of Mississippi. With a couple of breaks
the Gators could have very easy come out of the long end
cf the score.
NORTH TEXAS STATE and Auburn scored close vic-
tories over the Floridians, but the losers had the edge
through out the entire game and with the absence of some
costly penalties the Gators would have been on top at the
end. North Carolina State decided to stick to the ground
and found themselves beaten by a superior Florida line.
Miami, Furman, and Kansas State did the same and Flor-
ida's line completely out classed them. Tulane came onto
the field with high hopes and went off with a lucky 7-7 tie.
Bobby Forbes and Jimmy Kynes two of the Gator's
better ball players received a number of votes for all-
Southeastern Conference teams, .but neither made the first
team. Forbes made second team on the Associated Press
eleven, while Kynes was named on the second team of the
International News Service team, both were placed on the
second team of the United Press eleven. For the benefit of
some of the readers there is no such thing as an official all-
Southeastern Conference team. It is the same as the all-
American set-up. Every one and his cousin picks an all-
NO BOWL GAME for the Gators this year, was the
vote of the squad this week. Their vote was very fast and
fo the point. Coach Wolf explained the situation and they
voted almost to the man not to accept the bid. With Fal
Johnson in the hospital with an operation and two of the
boys quitting the squad the Gators were not in any kind of
shape to accept the bid.
AN EASY WIN was recorded by the Gator basketeers
over Tampa U. in their opening game. They however will
have their hands full Monday night when they meet the
pDO, crf'l Mississippi State team. This is the team that gave

Phi Delts o
Victory Over KA
Completes 22 Passes
In 25-6 Win
By Bill Moor
Phi Delta Theta led by Jim
Scott scored a rough one-sided
win over the previous high flying
Kappa Alpha touch footballers to
cop the Orange Loop title. Three
teams are battling it out for the
right to meet Phi Kappa Tau in
the finals of the Blue League.
The finals of the Orange League
can be summarized by naming
one person, Jim Scott of Phi Del-
ta Theta. Scott led his team to a
25-6 victory over Kappa Alpha by
completing 2 2out of 37 passes for
a total of 268 yards. Pell, also of
Phi Delt, completed one out of
three for the remaining 28 yard-
age. The KA's were greatly crip-
pled by the absence of Bill At-
kinson, All-star back. However,
they completed 11 out of 32 pass-
es for 154 yards.
The scoring was done in the
The Phi Delts scored late in
the 'first quarter on a five yard
bullet pass from Scott to Al Lind-
gren after Bollick had set up the
touchdown by grabbing one of
Scott's heaves for a 26 ard gain
to the KA five. Scott's pass for
the point was not good.
The Phi's made it 12-0 on a play
just before the half when Dixon
took Scott's shovel pass on the
five and sprinted over.
PDT scored their third touch-
down without losing the ball aft-
er the second half kickoff. Scott
passed to Poague for seven yards,
to Smith for 23, and to Smith
again for the rest of the distance
on a play covering 35 yards.
The KA's saved themselves
from a whitewashing in the fourth
quarter when Drew threw to Hop-
per for 10 yards and a touchdown.
The scoring opportunity was set
up by the longest gain of the
day, a pass from Drew to Mc-
Kinnon good for 48 yards.
The Phi Delts made it 25-6 in
the closing moments of the game
when Scott passed to Dixon for a
nine-yard scoring heave. Scott
threw to Lindgren for the point.,
The Phi Delts made six first
downs to the KA's four in a game
officiated by Buck Lanier, Lewis
Ansbacher, and Bob Scott, played
on Florida Field.
After the finals in the Orange
League the officials were asked
to submit an all-star team com-
posed of 14 men from the league.
This team follows:
Captain: Jim Scott, PDT. Oth-
er members: Al Lindgren and Gus
Smith of PDT; Bob Rodenberry
and Bill Atkinson of KA; Clewis
How-ell, Tom Sebring, and Eddie
Bond of SAE; "Wimpy" Suftton
and Le. Jinks of Sigma Nu; Bill
Fleming of Sigma Chi; Don
Walker from BPE; Tommy Tay-
or of DTD; and Tommy Hill of
The teams were still battling it
out in the Blue League with play-
iffs being the order of the day in
he second bracket.
The Phi Taus, having previous-
y gained the right to appear in
he finals by licking all five op-
ponents in their bracket remained
idle while the Delta Sigs, 'Pi Kap-
pa Phis and Theta Chis were try-
ng for wins in the other brack-
t. The Pi Kaps ended in a tie
dith the Delta Sigs and were
playing in a game yesterday to
determine which team would face
he Phi Taus in the finals Mon-
ay. The Pi Kaps beat the Theta
Chis Wednesday to end in a tie
with the Delta Sigs. The final
core was Pi Kap-13, TX-0. .
The finals will be played Mon-

Miami Seating: Many students return-
ing from the 1Florida-Miami game in the
Orange Bowl stadium a few weeks ago
complained of the way in which Florida
students, fans, and guests of the players
were treated in the selection of seats.
End zone seats were provided for Flor-
ida's delegation, as well as the Florida
band. It was recalled that Miami rooting
section last year here reached from the
goal-line to nearly the 40. It would seem
that better arrangements could be made.
One Warning: Some members of the
publications staff have discovered several
under-handed, low-down methods being
used by leaders in campus politics to
boost certain selfish interests. We detect
knife-in-the-back tactics; we approve out-
in-the-open honesty. This campus, and
this student government should be above
such practices. Needed now more than
ever are students head and shoulders
above such "below-the-belt" actions. We
give this as one warning, and say that if
certain of the practices continue, the
Alligator's stand will be one of uncovering
as much of this as possible for the wel-
fare of students.
Might Have Withdrawn
Two withdrew from the University of
Florida. How many more would have to
withdraw eventually had not these two
been discovered to have tuberculosis ?
As a result of the x-rays given at regis-
tration time the presence of the vicious
disease was discovered and the two stu-
dents resigned from school before there
as an opportunity to spread TB to many
others. These x-rays were made possible
mainly through sale of Christmas Seals
last year in this vicinity. If so many of us
hadn't contributed to the drive the x-rays
would not have been given and more
formerly strong bodies would now be in
the process of wasting away.
There were 13 healed cases and 19
suspicious cases, all them controlled af-
ter discovery. Keep future cases controll-
ed by buying Christmas Seals this year.
The drive is on here at the University.
Remember that tuberculosis can be cured
and is easiest to cure when discovered
early. Buy. Buy your own health.
The cost-of-living survey held this week
for all veterans on the campus by the
American Veterans Committee and the
local American Legion was one of hun-
dreds being conducted throughout the
United States in the concerted effort to
place before Congress actual facts in the
need for a raise in subsistence.
According to an early report, married
veterans had an average over $150, while
the single veterans were well above the
If the readers remember an editorial
in the August 15 Summer Gator we re-
printed a letter from'a similar movement
being started at the University of Texas.
They asked for cooperation with local
veterans associations. During the summer,
the veterans organizations here were in-
active, and nothing came of the drive.
We' hope that this will not die because
of the lack of enthusiasm, if this is what
the veterans on this campus really want.
As we stated this summer, we wish to re-
mind you of our newspaper policy about
being student owned and student con-
trolled. This means that if you veterans
wish to respond to the challenge present-
ed, your campus newspaper is published
to assist you in fighting for what you
think is right.
Therefore, we reserve further editorial
comment on this issue for the voice of the
University of Florida student-veterans.
Will Test Coed Interest
The long, hard student struggle for a
coeducational university was finally won
this year, and Fall Frolics is the first and
biggest social event of the present semes-
ter to test whether or not the 14-1 ratio
between men students and coeds will pro-
vide the campus with a new spark for all
functions of the coming week-end.
Florida men have seen what the coeds
can do during these past beginning weeks
of the school and the record is a good one.
They have participated in the pep rallies,
campus politics, sports, the Gator band,
social events, and have established them-
selves in the form of four sororities, which
are taking active parts in all Florida
Now, what the men wish to know is can
a coeducational Frolics go over with its
usual briskness while the coeds are par-
taking in the fun? With only 550 women
students and about 2,500 fraternity men,
one can readily imagine the problems
that might exist.
Coeducation has not affected the func-
tions, or the hours of such activities as
many believed. According to Dean Clif-
ford C. Beasely, faculty advisor for Flor-
ida fraternities, the schedule for late
hours have been approved for the same
time as before coeducation. Visiting hours
for chapters holding closed functions
were extended until 2 a. m., with 2:30 the
limit. Frats holding special functions must
close at 1 a. m. and for frats holding
regular activities, the 12 midnight exten-
sion from the usual 11 p. m. limit.
It is our great desire that this Fall
Frolics will prove, not only a credit to the
coeds, but a strong stimulant for bringing
more girls to the University of Florida.

the Alligator's baby contest had a tough

Reviews And Stuff By Gerald Clarke
In all probability there will not
be a shortage of records, despite
J. C. Petrillo; but, of course, the
question is, whether or not you
are going to want to buy the
things offered. Because of all the
rush to record -as many songs by
as, many artists as possible, be-
fore the deadline of January 1
(Petrillo may make it sooner),
one thing seems certain to me.
The general quality of record-
ed music is not going to be up
to par, although par seems fair-
ly low right now. One recording
company alone has had 1,700
songs submitted to it for quick
recording. How, in such a short
period of time, can 4. reasonable
selection be made from 1,700 un-
familiar songs? Then, if a fairly
good selection is made, it is like-
ly that any particularly inspired
orchestrations will be made be-
tween now and deadline time? I
hardly think so.
Since it takes the expenditure
of thousands of dollars each .time
a recording session takes place,
it is not likely, even if Petrillo
settles, that record companies
will be able to afford to lose the
thousands of dollars already put
into these pre-dateline discs.
They'll -release them anyway and
we'll have to buy them, I sup-
pose. The prospect of finding
many good tunes in the crop
seems pretty small indeed.
Certainly one of the most pro-
gressive moves made recently on
the campus is the executive coun-
cil's plan for a Spring Carnival. In
the bill proposing the Carnival's
creation the council says among
other things, "The Spring Carnival
weekend shall begin at noon on a
Friday after March 21st. The said
weekend shall end at midnight
Saturday." All of which provokes
memories of moving Thanksgiv-
ings, etc. So now the executive
council is leaving Sunday out of
the weekend-not that I had ever
considered Sunday a weekend es-
sential anyway think of the
out of the week-noble idea.
never was good for much on Mon-
day. Or-maybe Friday can be
eliminated by council edict-nobler
idea. always ready for a
weekend by Thursday.

thing else in their gifts to keep
them entertained. United Manufac-

describe the rescue of a squirrel from a cat, he can profitably devote
at least two inches to an announcement of the chemical engineering
student plant trip. We realize that this touching squirrel article gave
another by-line to your news editor, and that the notice we submitted
was written by a poor engineer who never liked C-3 Writing Lab.
We wonder if other organizations have been given the old run-
around like the AICHE has? On your masthead you claim to be "Dedi-
cated to student interest." Are you?
David W. Spaulding, V-Pres.
TO THE WRITER:
We are glad to receive such a complaint and are more than
happy to give an answer, especially on your case. The Alligator this
year inaugurated for the first time a page with only clubs and organi-
zation news. We wanted to cover as many of these clubs as possible.
We assigned reporters to certain organizations, but your club kept
putting them off. We then placed a blank in the paper for all clubs
to fill in and return, so we could keep up with them. Only a few
But the special page that we set aside somehow developed the
desire on the part of the campus organizations to be represented. It
thus was the incentive we hoped for to hear from the clubs in order
to rightfully publicize them.
According to your statement, you have turned in four articles. We
can only account for three. You previously claimed that one was turn-
ed into a girl in the room. Our system has a basket for all incoming
copy. If an article does not come to desk, and is turned into someone
sweeping out the room maybe, we can not guarantee publication. The
next one was printed in the Homecoming Edition concerning a stu-
dent plant trip. Another one was turned in on Wednesday and we have
to admit that it was lost in the rush at the Sun office. It happened
to be' yours instead of another. We did not, however, receive any ar-
icle from you last week, as your club staten.
We are not biased. If you had an article last week, we could have
printed 10 or 12 inches, for last week's C-and-O page had to reprint
an article from another college paper to make ends meet. We needed
mor news from clubs. We are sorry about your lack of publicity, but
happy to know that you are anxious for space in our paper, after
you ran us down so much. Yes, we are dedicated to student interest.
Seminole Pictures Explained
Since the Alligator has not seen fit to tell the student body why
they cannot have another opportunity to have their photographs made
for the 1948 Seminole, I feel that I will have to tell them through
Two weeks ago I suggested to the Board of Student Publications
that the Seminole Staff be allowed to keep the photographer here
for another week, due to the fact that the Alligator did not comply
with my personal request to place Seminole announcements on the
front page of the Alligator where the student body would be more
certain to read them. The Board decided that it would be impossible
for the Seminole photographer to remain on the campus another week.
I then suggested that a local photographer be engaged for additional'
sittings; this also was rejected.
The Seminole Staff regrets that this situation has arisen, but
feels that all within its power was done to afford the students of
the University an opportunity to sit for portraits for the 1948 Seminole.

Freedman is a BMOC. He's .
Of all the BMOC's on the cam-
pus, none of them quite measures
up in a lot of ways to a certain
guy I know. For professional rea-
sons, and the fact that he won't
be able to handle any more dates
this fall, I won't mention his name.
However, I am at liberty to say
that this fine young man is the
managing editor of the Alligator.
He comes from Clearwater. He is
very handsome, and besides that
isn't bad looking.
He is an ATO, and his initials
are T. S. Need I reiterate further ?
T. S. is majoring in journalism.
Other than that, he would like to
make newspaper work his life's
career. And speaking of journal-
ism, if anyone in that course
thinks that I have printed any-
thing libelous, they can go straight
T. S. is a very modest boy. The
other night he was walking by the
house with one of his many, many
girl friends, and he asked her if
she would like to see his etchings.
Naturally, she answered yes, and
T. S. says, "Wait right here, and
I'll bring 'em out."
He isn't too shy about the ladies,
though. Down at the Alligator of-
fice' there's a regular path beaten
to his desk and that path wasn't
there until after the advent of
cau-eluctio-n or.n this camriu -.it-

a crowd! Besides that, there were
a lot of people there. Anyway, as
I said, we each had a girl and a
bag of popcorn upon entering the
stadium. When we left the sta-
dium, T. S. had the girls and I had
the bags. What a pal!
I mentioned that T. S. is a mem-
ber of the ATO. ATO means Alpha
Tau Omega, which, when trans-
lated, means Alpha Tau Omega.
Our hero seems to have difficul-
ties figuring out the problems of
life, at times. He can't for the
life of him figure out why a girl
should ge,t mad at him when he
speaks the truth. Just because he
told her she looked like a fugitive
from a laundry bag is no reason
for her to blow her top!
T. S. has a car. That car has a
license plate. And that license
plate is known in every small town
in this state. T. S. does his share
towards keeping the state high-
way patrol in business. Everybody
seems to like T. S. Wlhy. I don't
know. You just have to meet him
to appreciate him, that's all. But
I wouldn't wish that off on you,
you know. It's up to you, chilling.
