The huge program of temporary construction, that has been underway on cam-
us for the past year and a half, has enter ed its final stages and should be completed
luring the month of January. The total bill has run to more than nine million dollars
and is in addition to the seven million doll ar, state financed program of new buildings
now being built here.
George F. Baughman, assistant business manager revealed this week that the vast
enlargement program added more than a half-million square feet in buildings to the
\, University. This is. an increase of
'H lt more than 55 percent of the total
facilities which were on campus
early in 1946 that had been built in
the past 40 years.
The state government in con-
junction with the Public Hous-
ing Admministration, Fd edrra
Works Agency, War Assets Ad-
ministration and the U. S. Of-
fi- ce of Education was given the
credit by Baughman for maidng

ing; $8.48 for laundry and clean-
ing; $10.42 for insurance; $10 for
transportation; and $15 for mis-
cellaneous which would seem
to prove that two can't live as
cheaply as one. after all.
One-half of the married stu-
dents are carrying less than $5
worth of insurance, and 20 per-
cent are carrying none at all.
Dr, Ehrmann then selected a
sample group of 201 married stu-
dents, equally divided among the
heaviest, average and lowest
spenders, and tabulated the forms
of outside income reported. He
found that 113, or considerably
over half, are working, 103 are
drawing on their savings month-
ly, 40 are receiving aid from
their parents and 57 have other
channels of income.
He further pointed out that
the cost of living made an over-
all rise of 18 percent in the. first
year after OPA controls were re-
moved, and food has pone up
some 31 percent. Since most of
the veteran expenditure is for
food, the latter figure is more in-
dicative of the veteran's increased
cost of living.

Next Step To Cut Down Crowds Is
Up To Board Of Control
By Lee Welssenborn
A silver lining was added to a
dark cloud by Mrs. N. B. Anchors,
post office superintendent, in her
disclosure that a certain faculty
head had contacted her in- re-
gard to expanding the building.
This does not mean that any-
thing definite has been planned
but it does mean that the Board

in the situation -- and this alone

Anchors explained the situation
in these words, "I wish to make it

stands. In the first place an ex-,
tension of the building to the
west which would add another

was later abandoned for a plan
which called for extending the

Definite plans for this proposed

Max Reiter's San Antonio Group Gives
Long And Varied Program

The San Antonio Symphony's
Thursday afternoon and evening
had more than their obvious signi-

manner but, more important, the
concerts stood as symbols of the

The orchestra under the direc-
tion of Max Reiter, played a long',
varied program, and did every-
thing attempted with complete en-
thusiasm--perhaps, reflecting the
youth of the group. There were
no deviations front musical good
taste. The audience received the
program with long, loud applause
-a. trifle inappropriate in between
the movements of the Bizet sym-
phony, but obviously heartfelt.
There were many empty seats for
the afternoon performance but
you wouldn't have known it from
the intensity of the applause.
Wagner's "Prelude and Love
Death" from Tristan Und Isolde
was given one of those rare per-
formances which combined re-
straint with passionate expression.
The major work of the program,
Bizet's Symphony No. 1 in C ma-
jor, proved itself completely valid,
despite the fact that it clearly
showed its derivation from Bee-
thoven, Mozart, and Mendelssohn.
The program closed with Rem-
bert Russell Bennett's suite of

rangement of "Stardust," and
Tueci's "La Bomba de Vera Cruz."

THE FLORIDA ALLIGATOR-FRIDAY, DEC. 12, 1947
Sound Procedure Ignored,
President Tells New
By Peggy Clayton
speaking last week before mem-
er of the University of Florida
hil Beta Kappa chapter and the
public at a meeting commemorat-
ing the 171st anniversary of the
scholastic fraternity's organiza-
tion, and honoring nine new ini-
tiates, Dr. J. Hillis Miller stated
that too much competition be-
tween educational programs has
caused leading institutions to ig-
nore sound educational procedure.
Dr. Miller condemned "that type
of competition between educators
and educational institutions that
has led these same institutions to
be guilty of training men and wom-
en to practice bad competition
against their fellow men in the
world of affairs.
-Competition has not been lim-
ited only to rivalry between insti-
tutions-it has been practiced be-
tween departments on individual
campuses and carried on for per-
sonal, departmental or institution-
al advantage, rather than in the
name of truth and academic exeel-
Teach To Think
Turning to the positive side of
the problem, Dr. Miller pointed to
the kind of educational competi-
tion to be praised and practiced,
the kind of "competition that aims
to do a better job of teaching
youth to think, to devise better
methods of imparting information,
to push back the frontier of knowl-
edge, to acquaint youth with a bet-
ter understanding of the problems
of modern society, and to instill in
them a moral and social responsi-
bility toward their fellows.
"While colleges have other uur-
poses, there is none more impor-
tant than to train youth to think
soundly," he said, warning that
"institutions of higher learning
are in danger of sponsoring and
tolerating such a confusion of ac-
tivities that tarining in sound
thinking may be crowded out."
He commended Phi Beta Kappa
on its intellectual leadership, but
cautioned that the future basis of
awards might well rest in broad
comprehension of the problems of
modern world, rather than "in iso-
lated areas of human knowledge
called courses of study."
Earlier in the evening Dr. Mil-
ler had attended the initiation of
the nine University students into
Phi Beta Kappa where Dr. C. A.
Robertson presented the charge to
Initiates and, James Wilson accept-
ed the challenge. Dr. Manning
Dauer presided over the meeting.

Takes Part In Local
Festive Yuletide spirit was her-
alded in by the "Fighting Gator"
Band, Tuesday afternoon, as it
participated with local groups in
Gainesville's first big Christmas
Arrayed in its full-dress orange
and blue uniforms, the Gator
band attracted much attention as
it marched from Gainesville High
School down University Ave,
around the court house square,
and on to Kirby-Smith School
where the parade disbanded.
Featured in the parade were 14:
floats, twelve of which featured
"Mother Goose" themes which
caused a great amount of inter-
est among the younger Flavet set.
The parade also featured 22 giant
balloons, the longest, a dragon,
measuring 75 feet from head to
Radio station WRUF manned

Infimary Expands Services;

Best In Nation Is
Objective For Work
Now Being Done
By Sandy Geer
One of the best infirmaries in
the nation-that's what the Uni-
versity of Florida Infirmary will
be when new equipment is in-
stalled. Much of the new material
is already ordered and some of
it has even arrived.
Dean D. K. Stanley, of the College
of Health and Physical Educa-
tion, said that when construction
is completed and all the new
equipment is installed, the in-
firmary will provide adequate fa-
cilities for a student body of 10,-
The list of items to be placed
in the infirmary reads like an

pital. NeW equipment will be plac-
ed in the operating room, wards,
reception hall, offices, clinic, and
Typical of the modern devices
being purchased is the new 6perat-
ing table to be used for emergen-
cy cases. The piece of equipment
can do almost anything but run
a four-minute mile. In addition to
the table, a new steam autoclave
and instrument sterilizers will be
bought along with many surgical
Wards will be fitted with inner-
spring mattresses on each bed.
Two rooms will be air condition-
ed for the benefit of patients suf-
fering from asthma and skin di-
seases. New blankets, sheets, and
pajamas have been ordered for
use of students while in the in-
firmary. NeW kitchen equipment
rur.s all the way from stoves to
large walk-in refrierators.g
Special refrigerators will, be
used for certain drugs which must
be maintained at low tempera-
tures Electrically heated food
carts will carry food from the
kitchen to the wards.
New furniture will adl charm
to the reception room as well as
the nurses' quarters. Safes and
other' office equipment will help
insure more efficient operation of
that branch of the infirmary. In
addition, many other pieces of
expensive equipment will take
their place to help provide Florida
students with better medical care.

The infirmary is usually crowded

sake. First your medical record is
pulled from the files by the recep-

you when your time comes and she
treats you or gets information the
doctor will need, such as tempera-
ture, pulse, and respiration. Then
if you have to see the doctor he
won't have to waste time doing
what the nurse has already done.

for treatment do what they tell

By Louis Sweet
Dr. Embree R. Rose came to the
University Infirmary as resident
physician in February of 1946. At
that time he was the only doctor
here and his staff was less than
half of its present size. He had
many obsticles to overcome to
bring the infirmary up to its high
There was and is a shortage of
doctors and nurses in the country.
The equipment on hand was inade-
quate to care for the 4,000 stu-
dents on campus then and the rec-
ords were not in order. It took six
, or eight months to get enough
I money allowed to the infirmary be-
fore expansion could be begun.
In the past year the infirmary
has added to its staff three doc-
tors, 10 nurses, two 'laboratory
technicians, and one x-ray tech-
nician. In addition to this $250,000
has been allowed for additions to
the infirmary building and con-
struction is well under way. New
medical equipment will cost $45,-
000 for which money has been al-
loted. These improvements should
be completed in six months.
There have been complaints
made about the infirmary and the
service received there, but most
were made by students who had
heard rumors. The doctors are
literally defenseless against such
rumors, for to prove them wrong
would entail bringing to light per-
sinal medical information about
student patients and this is against
medical ethics. The doctor has to
sit back and let people believe
what they will even when their
facts are wrong.
Students should keep this in
mind when they hear a rumor
about the infirmary. If they have
been treated at the infirmary and
have a complaint it should be made
to the dean of the Physical Edu-
For 156 Patients
As Daily Average
Friday, November 14, was an-
other typical day at Florida's in-
firmary. The staff of the institu-
tion had been busy caring for the
large number of students who had
come to seek medical aid. The
staff of four doctors saw, person-
ally, 156 clinic patients in addi-
tion to making their rounds in the
wards where 25 students happen-
ed to be on that particular day.
Such is the extent of the work
carried on each day by the doctors
who serve the infirmary, assisted
by the nurses and technicians. The
figures seem even more impres-
sive when a whole month is ex-
amined: During November, 130
patients were admitted to the in-
firmary, where they spent .326
hospital-days, and 3,184 patients
received clinical treatment. In No-
vember over 2,600 meals were
served to the patients and the
These figures are just a means
of showing that the infirmary does
function, and Florida students are
receiving full benefit from their

A FIERY FEUD seems in the offering very soon between the
"F" Club and the University band. It seems the "F" Club boys don't
approve of the 10 inch letters that the band members have gotten.
And this writer sides very definitely with the athletes. Florida band
members are given 10 inch'F's with a very small lyre, while Florida
football lettermen are given numerals a little over the seven inch
mark. Letter winners in baseball, track and basketball are given even
BAND MEMBERS retaliate by pointing out that the band letters
have the lyre on it which marks it as a band letter. Having seen a
number of these letters on the campus we definitely can testify that
the lyre is so small you can't tell whether it is a football or just
exactly what from a short distance. The little emblem is no larger
than an inch in height and not much longer.
DURING FALL FROLICS my date and I were walking across
the campus to the concert and here come this gentleman wearing a
white sweater with four stripes on it. My date gave a gasp and with
envious eyes she wanted to know who that All-American football
player was. I took a close look and then it hit me, he had a small lyre
in the middle of the letter which gave him away. This however did
not take any of his pomp away though.
LARGER LYRES with a F background is just exactly what the
band should give. It is done in most of the state's high schools, so
why not here, at the University.
FLORIDA'S BASKETBALLERS have gotten off to a fast start
this season by trouncing Tampa U. by a one-sided score then coming
roaring back to nose out previously-unbeaten Mississippi State by five
points The Gators should grab two more this week-end when they
neet Auburn tonight and tomorrow night in a pair of Southeastern
Conference games. The Gators will play 12 conference games, this
/ season and have a fair chance to end their campaign above the .500
average. Tulane will very likely be their strongest loop opponent. The
Gators will play them in New Orleans January 6. L.S.U. will also fur-
aish some strong competition for the Gator basketeers the night be-
fore the Tulane fracas in Baton Rouge. After the two Auburn games
this week-end the squad will play two games with Miami which will
conclude their slate until after the Christmas holidays..Then their
trip to New Orleans will begin.
HARRY HAMILTON seems to be the most improved member
of the 1947-48 Gator basketball team. Big Harry did a superb job
of controlling the backboard in the Mississippi State game and also
contributed six field goals to the cause. Julian Miller and Bill Atkin-
son also did much to prove their worth. After the Gator basketeers get
a few more games under their belts they will give almost any team
in the conference a battle.
A MIX UP has caused the annual Phi Delta Theta-Sigma Nu
charity football game to be played on the same night Florida's bas-
ketball team tangles with Auburn's Tigers in the New Gym. The of-
ficials of the two events should have-gotten together and changed
one or the other. The grid clash between the two fraternaties is a
very worthy cause and the basketball game is something that all
Florida students should see. However the grid game is partially spon-
sored by the merchants of Gainesville while the people of Gainesville
are banned from Florida's .basketball games.
CHARLES CONERLY one of the most publicized backs in the
history of the South was not placed on the first team of the Associ-
ated Press all-American team. There have been thousands of words
written about the affair so -this writer will reprint a few words plus
a .poem from THE MISSISSIPPIAN, the Ole Miss publication. John
Rogers, sports editor of the paper, says "No less than seven separate
confirmations were received in the University of Mississippi Athletic
Publicity office stating definitely and emphatically that Charles
Conerly had'made the AP All-American first team from persons work-
ing for or allied with the Associated Press two weeks before publica-
tion of the team! If this is true there should be an answer some-
where. We saw Conerly in the Florida-Mississippi game and also had
seen him play high school ball. There is no doubt in our mind he is
the number one back in college .football today.
GATORS ENDED THEIR season with a pretty fair record na-
tionally it was revealed this past week by the final rating of the
Associated Press. According to Jack Bryan, one of our most depend-
able' informers, the Gators finished the season in 35th place tied with
the University of Georgia and a pair of other schools. Mr. Bryan also
points out the fact that the Gators played three of the top twenty
team and defeatedone of them,\ while Notre Dame played two in the
top twenty and Michigan failed to play a top team.

Varsity Boxing May
By Sandy Schnier
Reasons for the discontinuance,
of intra-mural and varsity boxing
on the Florida campus were giv-
en today by Jerry Klein, student-
intra-mural director, and Coach
Ray Wolf, head of the inter-col-
legiate sports program.

in last year's intra-mural bouts
and started talk toward them.

of picking likely candidates for
the ,varsity. squad, were too one-
sided in many cases. The dispar-
ity in ages among some partici-
pa-rnt was too great. Several

Take a good look at the impressive l1ist
of figures in the front page story on Flol'-
ida's construction. It's a story that no1V
can be told. It's a story that can be plac-
ed in a book to read like fiction. It's a
,dory of sweat, toil, and sometimes tears.
The success of this building program,

,ributable to many men-the Board of

the same reason. The Governor and

much of the credit for working out how
lanvy of the needs could be met.
The Seabees had a motto: "Can do."
Although a Navy man, George F. Baugh-

University of Florida, was no Seabee but
the motto could well apply. It would be
wrong to say that Baughman got the
buildings for the campus, but it would
be just as wrong to say some of them
would have been obtained had it not been

Assets Administration to aid in solving a
major housing problem.
Therefore, the Florida Allegator be-
lieves that George Baughman is the man

loved Business Manager, is leaving Janu-

WRUF Takes Long Stride
In Making School Known
The result of the expansion of WRUF
will be a greater knowledge of the Uni-

of the best means of information dissemi-

statement that "the University of Florida
is better loved than known."

Ordinary Times By H. G. (Buddy) Davis
This week may have been thme
beginning of the end.
Wars, like dynamite, must have
a fuse to ignite the explosion.
Never forget it was only a mad-.
dened h9erbian student that fired
the shot into Archduke Francis
Ferdinand and ignited the powder
kegs of Europe in 1914. Small in-
idents can start wars.
Significant item of this week is
that the United States Treasury
is now prepared to issue new cur-
rency in Germany. The new mon-
ey is to be issued in event of con-
tinued failure to reach agreement
with Soviet Russia on a peace set-
This means the United States
is expecting the meeting of the
Big Four foreign ministers in
London to be stalemated once
again. And more important, it
means that the United States is
prepared and expects to make a
.separate peace with Germany.
Our government has tired of
- Russian demands for 10 billion
dollars of reparations from Ger-
many. Our diplomats are sick of
Molotov's "The Soviet Union de-
mands a literal, democratic,
peace-loving central government
for all of Germany.".
In case you didn't notice. the
key word in that quotation is
"central." While we wish a, weak-
er government flexible to the will
of the German people, the Rus-
sians desire a strong central gov-
ernment. And if the simple Little
Red Riding Hood were to ask the
reason for central government,'
the Russian Bear would try to
conceal the answer of "so much
better to eat you with."
It seems that two years of ne-
gotiations have done just about as
well as a poultice on a wooden
Molotov.has two arguments for
Russia's stand on Germany. He
says the German people want a
central government he also
says that a separate peace would
Strange as it may seem the
Associated Press reports that the
German people prefer paying rep-
arations an d establishing a
strong central government. What-
ever their argument in the mat-
ter, through the eyes of Uncle
ham, it seems best to give the
Germans what they. need, not,
what they want.
And from W'here this author
stands, Molotov is right about the
partitioning of Germany. The
next obvious move, if the meeting
of the Big Four fails, is unify-
ing of the French. British and
United States sectors of Germany'
under one democratic govern-
ment. This leaves Russia to con-
trol her sector as desired.
Germany. the nation, will still
exist. Germany, the government.
will be split in twain.
But Germany ie only one plum
in the pie. The idea of a .world
split into two different and con-
flicting factions is a terrifying
one. Some writers, notably John
Temple Graves, disagree. Graves
says that. with Russia a rival, and
short of war, we might come alive
in our country, develop character,
austerity, enterprise, and religion.
But imagine' how, with all dip-
lomatic relations severed, both
world factions would withdraw
behind their respective "iron cur-
tains" and prepare for the even-
tual war. Perhaps we would de-
velop the virtues mentioned by
John Temple Graves, but we
would only agravate the wound
which was left when "freedom
from fear" was wrenched away
from us by the Bomb.
This writer does not want in
any way to become connected
with a policy of Russian appease-
ment. No sound peace can be con-
structed on such a policy. Ap-
pease-ment comes within the
shadow of slavery.
But rest assured of one thing,
there will be no lasting peace in
a divided world. Distribution of
the new currency means a divided
Germany, German division points
to a divided earth, and a divided
earth foretells a shooting war.
We will be forced to fight the war
that could not be settled across
the conference tables.
This seems to be pessimistic.
But after all. man is striving for
lasting peace and will someday
achieve his goal.'
God grant that enough men be
left to enjoy it.

Bike Rider Writes Of Perils
President Miller will never know how close he came to writing
a. letter of regretsto my wife and parents. It all happened several
days ago as I was bike peddling to class. A car zoomed past-so close
that it almost hurt. The driver neither blew his horn nor gave me
enough room to see daylight between his car and me.
Perhaps the bicyclists and pedistrians are at fault as much in
many of these situations as the auto experts, but if. my narrow escape

Thinks It's An Injustice
Several weeks ago Dr. Miller announced the tuition and registra-
tion fee for out-of-state students would be raised from $150 to $200.
He neglected to announce that the raise would pertain to" veteran
In Architecture 211 the book lists amount to $64.65. Equipment
amounts to slightly more than that. For the students-whose books and
supplies amount to more than $50 ,per semester, this means that

item made me wonder a little
bit about the University of Flor-

The question hadn't been with
me long when I came across
President Miller's declaration on
the admission of out-of-state stu-
dents. One of the reasons, he gave
for their future admission was
that their absence might well lead
to an undesirable provincialism.
PROVINCIALISM, a word with
all kinds of unpleasant emotion-
al tones-it should not connote
more than mannerisms and
thoughts particular to a certain
area-but it does.
We can afford to be proud of
our provincialism-that is, if we
mean our Southern traditions of
hospitality and good will. Yes, we
can afford to be proud. But are
we tending toward that other kind
of provincialism- narrowness of
view and isolation'from the world ?

to make up the higher aesthetic
achievements of our culture, are

As I See 'Em By Elgin White
I wonder if the students who
read this newspaper ever really get
to know the brains that put it
out? Or would you rather the
brains be put out?
No telling how much labor goes
into the publication of this fine
pillar of truth. So I won't tell. Day
and night, night and day, the staff
of your Alligator pound these
typewriters to death. Write, re-
write, copy, run, talk, act, scoop.
poop, vanilla, two cokes, and a ham
on rye! All for you, students.
Then too, have you ever wonder-
ed about the lives of the men be-
hind the men behind the news-
print? You have? Allow me to
present a composite picture of the
harried life of an editor in action.
And who could be a better subject
than the editor of this ra-, I
Pen Gaines is a man who is un-
biased. He is a pillar of truth. He
is honest, forthright, keen, a fine
student, a . ye gads, if I keep
this up. I'll start believing this
Pen has never been swayed by
Public Opinion. He is one guy you
can either count on or count out.
According to reports I have receiv-
ed. he was counted out six times
between 9:30 and 12 last Saturday
night at the Frolics. 1 don't know
why! He never touches the stuff.
Be that as it may, he is a good
boy. I know, because the date he
had for the Frolics told me so.

You have heard of men who

alone? He's different. He takes 'erm
and they leave him alone! His en-
thusiasm for the girls knows no
restraint, so they say. The girls.
When Pen took over the editor-
ship of the Florida Alligator, it
was just another newspaper. Now,
not only is it a newspaper, but peo-
ple even use it to wrap packages.
among other things.
Pen decided to take up journal-
ism as a profession when he was
in the Army. His girl friend told
him to write, so that's what he's
been doing ever since.
He did not get the nicknamni
"Pen" because he is a writer. His
real name is John Pendleton
Gaines. Evidentually, his dad
thought he would grow up to be a
rich guy, therefore, the middle
name of Pendleton. The only way
anyone (an ever get rich in jour-
nalism is to play your Horses
against your Knights.
J. P., as he is affectionately
known around the office, is a
scholar. The rest of us are just
students. He is of the highest rank.

Pen works like a beaver. The
reason for this is because he once
heard that a beaver was the only
thing that ever gave a dam. He
likes to share his duties with oth-
