C5 Official Claims Explainng Of
Communist Theory Not Banned
By Ted Shurtleff
The explaining of Communism

has not been banned, said Dr.
Robert F. Davidson, head of the
C-5 Department, yesterday.
'Banned' is not quite the word

C-5 Syllabus Committee found
that there have been misinterpre-
tations of our attempts to pre-
sent Communistic theories and
thought it wise to revise that
part of the course."
The books which have caused
the "misinterpretations" are John
Steinbeck's ."In Dubious Battle"
and Karl Marx' "Communist
Manifesto," published in 1845.
In place of "In Dubious Bat-

Won't Name Complainers
Dr. Davidson declined to name
who the specific complaints, or
misinterpretations, came from
but denied that they came from
the Board of Control. W. W. Lit-
tle, dean of the University Col-
lege, who conferred with the
committee, declared that he knew
of no complaints or interference
from any outsiders. "I have heard
none at all," said Dean Little,

other citizens or students.
"Revisions are necessary in pedient to make changes." The

in fAst to the ALIGATOR, which
is spwoaormg the contest to find
a name for the gymnasium.
Dean ennis K, Stanley, head
of the Colleg of Physical Edupa-
tion, said hie was very much en-
couraged by the recent wave of
interest in te contest.-
The contest is concerned not so
much with the Agtual finding of a
name for the .campus' largest
structure, but rather to gather
sentiment of alumni and student
body as to what the. gym shall be
called. Reason for this is to give
the student body of past and pres-
ent a yoice in naming one of the

.All entries dated .not later than
January 5 will be considered, .and
the winner is to receive a trophy,
or a wrist watch, or a pen and
pencil set. In addition to this, if
an organization sponsors a name,
or if the person who turns in a
winning name belongs to an or-
'ganization, that group may re-
ceive part of the prize for the
winning name, possibly in the form
of a trophy.
The gym, to be completed about
February, 1949, is to house amny
modern features, including four
full-size basketball courts, a nor-
mal seating capacity of between
6,000 and 7,000 persons for spec-
tator sports, a full-house seating
capacity of 10,000, two audito-
riums, lounges, dressing rooms,
class rooms, offices for members
of the faculty, club rooms, pub-
licity department offices, and an
asr-cooled gym and auditorium. It
is to be 3360 1y 212 feet.
Future entries should be turned
in to the 'ALLIGATOR office.
From there they will go to Stan-
ley, who will tabulate them and
turn them over to President Miller,
They will end in the hands of the
Board of Control.

tory, of the University that the

ample over the weekend, as a
d e e g a t i o n from Northwestern
Louisiana College toured the cam-
pus.ccording to Dean Clifford
9easley, purpose of the visit was
to study the honor system and
student government in general.
Northwestern Louisiana College is
planning to install an honor sys-
tern, and was advised by the U. S.
office of Education that Florida
has an honor system in opera-
tion in the student body which is
one of the oldest and most suc-
cessful in the country."
Led by 0oe N. Gerber, direc-
tor of student personnel at
NCL, at Natchitoches, La., the
delegation, composed of ten
Louisiana school students and
arrived at Gainesville Friday
morning. After an initial con-
ference with Beasley, members
of the group were taken to
lunch by Student Body Presi-
dent John Crews and members
of his cabinet, along with mem-
bers of the .Honor Court.
Friday afternoon a three-hour
discussion was held in regard to
the student government and its
functions. That night the group
was entertained with dinner at
the Campus Club attended by
members of the faculty and stu-
dent body. Afterward, they ob-
served an actual trial of a civil
case in the Honor Court.
A tour of the campus was made
Saturday morning with particular
emphasis in veteran housing, co-
operative grocery, athletic and
intramural setup and the dormi-
Gerber complimented the Uni-
versity of Flordia on its organiza-
tion of the student body and the
manner in which the students have
accepted their responsibility and
administered the authority which
was delegated to them. He ex-
pressed confidence that the group
had benefitted from their stay
here and gained many new ideas
which would be helpful in inaugu-
rating a new honor system at
Northwestern Louisiana College.

eWindows Due To
(..;: of the most beautiful at-

is tl'e twin set of strained glass
windows in the east wall of the
Union Chapel. "Many a visitor has
re:-rrked about the beauty and
excellent workmanship of these
windows," states Billy Mathews,
di".c'cr of the Union.
Commissioned by D'Ascenzo
Studios of New York, the windows
were assembled and set in place,
m 1937, at a cost of $1,400. Pay-

dow contains six panes picturing
the world's creation, with the for-

oceans dividing the land, the in-
troduction of all manner of birds,
the creation of beasts, and then
that of the fishes of the sea, be-
ing presented respectively in each
Panes with the ttvelve signs of
the zodiac alternate below and

while a growing Tree of Life
serves as a background design in

The windows are a perfect ex-

ed States by far takes the lead in
World competition. Modern stain-
ed glass far surpasses the stained
glass produced in the twelfth and
thirteen centuries, the "golden
age" of the art. Assembled in large

Parking Problem Solved?
Predictions of things to come. The University's parking problem
will be solved next week. There will be plenty of parking space for

campus look empty (top), as compared with the usual jam (bottom).
Calls For Organization
Head Of Transportation Department Sees
That Vehicles Hold To Schedule
By Dell Loyless
Charley H. (Curley) Grier is the
transportation man with a capital
"T" on this campus. He is the
"daddy" of some 53 vehicles today
but to keep pace with the rapidly
growing University, he is expect-
ing several more "blessed events"
any day now.
Cruley is. an old hand at the art
of seeing that busses and trucks
are in running order and at the
right place at the right time. His
days of service run back to the
pre-war era. During the big ruckus
overseas, he took time out and did
his part by Uncle Sam as a Chief
in the Navy.
Grier's assistant, William A.
Giffen, is a student in the College
of Business Administration and is
majoring in Transportation. The
only part-time employee in the
transportation department, Giffen
is no new hand at his job, either.
During his stint in the Army, he
was concerned with transport and
comes naturally by his present
title of Traffic Manager.

here are also two semi-truck
trailers capable of carrying one
hundred passengers each. Two 75-
passenger busses are also in the
process of being fixed for service
now. Those two are diesel jobs and
may be chartered by University
clubs and organizations going on
trips to conventions and the like.
Two new garbage disposal
trucks have been recently received
on campus and a third is expected
shortly. When the new truck is re-
ceived, garbage collections will be
stepped up to three times a week.
Three motor scooters were auth-
orized recently by the Board of
Control. Their delivery in the near
future will release the use of larg-
er equipment from delivering small
packages around campus. All Uni-

Marriage And Family Fast'Becomes
Most Popular Elective On Campus
Over 300 Are
By Hayes Kennedy
Three hours each week approxi-
mately 320 students assemble in
Chemistry Auditorium to take one
of the most popular electives giv-
en at the University of Florida.
The course is Marriage and the
There has been an increase in
enrollment in this type of course
in colleges and universities all over
the United States. The size of the
Marriage and Family classes at
Florida is no exception. In fact,
the number of students taking
this course here is one of the larg-
est in the country.
Began In 1939
Although this course was first
started in 1939, it didn't really
come into popularity until after
the war. Upon Prof. W. W. Ehr-
mann's return to the University,
after his discharge from the serv-
ice, he again took over Marriage
and the Family, which he taught
prior to the war, and enrollments
for this subject began to increase
During the last regular semes-
ter, Spring, 1947, the number of
students signed for Marriage and
the Family was well over 200.
Now there are about 320 men and
women taking this course. For
the past two summer terms the
enrollment has been about the
same in proportion to the number
of students in school.
According to Prof. Ehrmann,
Marriage and the Family as a
college course is two-fold. First,
it gives a student the opportunity
to learn about this subject from
an individual's standpoint, as giv-
en by the instructor and textbooks
by authorities in this field'. Sec-
ond, it gives a larger social view
of marriage and the family in its
cultural surroundings and the so-
cial adjustments involved in these
One of the outstanding reasons
for the rise of Marriage and the
Family courses during recent
years in the colleges and univer-
sities, is the instability of the
modern family. It has been ob-

served that more and more stu-
dents are showing a sincere dee
sire to study marriage and fam-
ily problems in order to make
the marriage institution a great-
er success. Prof. Ehrmann states
that "the high divorce rate in the
United States is one of the symp-
toms of a general state of family
instability in the modern world to-
Another thing that is emphati-
cally pointed out is the fact that
there are always going to be
changes in this course. As a re-
sult of scientific research, many
people are invariably' affected,
making this fact very pertinent.
Some of the more important
fields of study covered by mar-
riage and the family are the na-
ture and charteristics of the fa-
mily and marriage, the relation be-
tween men and women and social
consequences, the differential out-
lok of men and women, the de-
velopmental difference between
male and female, and sex educa-
The family unit is the primary
social organization of any group
or nation of people; subjects hav-
ing great bearing on this institu-
tion and covered by this course,
are: preparation for marriage, fac-
tors influencing marital happiness
and adjustments, the effect of
social change upon marriage and
family, the legal aspects of mar-
riage, family disorganiztion.
Marriage and the family is ob-
jectively taught, and Prof. Ehr-
man feels that this course has
much to offer any student on the
campus. The majority of the stu-
lents who have taken, or are tak-
ing this course think that every
person in college should have it.

STORAGE Barristers At An All-
NUMEROUS LETTERS have reached this writer in regard to
his so called slam toward the band and their policy of numerals. Many
of them were of the anonymous nature and found their way to the
waste basket. One of the epistles was very informative deserving
close consideration and was appreciated by this writer. The letter
came from George D. Johnson Jr. and gave some facts that I would
like to present to the reader.
MR. JOHNSON SAYS that the band letters were ordered last
spring and the factory failed to deliver exact letters that were order-
ed and so the ones which this writer slammed were sent back. Our in--
former continues, with the fact that a week before Fall Frolics the
band returned to the factory a second order that had failed to fill,
expectations. The letters which were supposed to have been sent have
never received any words of criticism from any one on the campus.
.I RECOGNIZE THE FACTS that Mr. Johnson pointed out that at
many of the games out of the state, that the band is the only organiz-
ed cheering section at the games, but I will have to disagree with Mr.
Johnson on a few of his points. Mr. Johnson emphasis that the band
works nine months for their letter while the football players work only
during the grid season. However, Mr. Johnson, the football season lasts
from Sept. 1 until Dec. 1. The players then get a two months lay off
and then they start their spring drills. These drills last eight to 12
weeks. Many of the boys spend most of the summer in school drilling
for football. Don't forget Mr. Johnson the football players work at
least three hours a day on the field and usually many more in skull
sessions. Don't underrate the worth of your football team.
I WOULD LIKE TO CLOSE with this little word of advice to
the ones who failed to sign their names to their letters. This writer .is
always open to any type of constructive criticism and will always en-
deavor to give the students the best we can. However we will not
consider any letters which are not signed as we feel that such letters
belong in the waste basket. That is where they all went. ...... .. .
THE OFFICIATING at the Auburn games this past week-end
was not up to par, but it gave Gator rooters no right to boo the oppos-
ing team. Howls came up to a new level when the Tiger cagers were
trying for foul shots. In not a too distant future our friends from the
University of Georgia will be down for a pair of games and that is
the time to watch your booing. Officials can very easily call a techni-
cal foul on the Florida team and it could very easy mean a ball game.
RUMORS ARE FLYING around the campus to the effect that a
number of the Florida gridders will not return to Gatorland next
season when pigskin time rolls around. This writer has made a check
and from all indications no important member of the Gator grid ma-
chine intends to be missing whenAhe whistle is blown for the Missis-
sippi kick-off next September in aacksonville. There is no doubt that
some of the members of the "B" squad will go to other schools are
decide to quit college for good, but as far as we can find no mem-
bers of the varsity intend to drop their scholarships.
DID LOUIS OR WALCOTT WIN? This seems to be the talk of
the sports world and this writer will step out of the University for a
few moments and give his feeble opinion. It is of course based on the
pictures as I was having a fine time here at Fall Frolics while the
two negros were battling it out. From the looks of the pictures neith-
er fighter had too much of an edge. Louis carried the fight all the
way, while Walcott had the better of the punches. Louis looked slow
and easy to hit, while Walcott was always on the move and quick on
his punches. Don't be too surprised if Louis doesn't flatten Jersey Joe
inside of five rounds in their next meeting. This has ear marks of a
deal pulled by Honest Mike Jacobs.
THE SPORTS DEPARTMENT of the Florida Alligator wishes to
take this chance to wish each and every reader of our pages a very
Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year. We hope to

til he finishes his four-year stretch
here at the University.
Forbes, who led the nation most
of the grid season in rushing, re-
ceived a wire late this week in-
forming him of the action of the
Yanks. The wire informed him
that complete details of the draft
would be forwarded him later this

Phi Dells Score
12-0 Win Over
Sigma Nu Eleven
Score Seventh Victory
In Series Dates
Back To 1924
By Jack Ledoux
Phi Delta Theta splashed to a
hard-fought 12-0 victory over a
game Sigma Nu eleven before a
small crowd of rainsoaked fans at
Florida Field last Saturday.
Scoring in the second and fourth
periods, the Phi Delts racked up
their seventh victory in the rivalry
which dates back to 1924. A pair
of hard-running backs, Gene Bo-
lick of Miami and Thomas Dixon
of Jacksonville, plus fine defensive
line play spelled the difference be-
tween the two teams.
The teams battled on even terms
until the middle of the second
period when Dixon took a long
Sigma Nu punt off the toe of
Reeves Smith on his own 28 yard-
line and raced 72 yards up the cen-
ter of the field for a touchdown. A
beautiful block by Phi Delt guard,
Marcus Snow, on the Sigma Nu
35 yard-line eliminated the last
possible tackler. Bolick missed the
try for extra point.
Unable to Score
It was still anybody's ball game
in the third period as both teams
gained at will at mid-field, but
were unable to muster a scoring
Dawson Wilson set up the Phi
Delts second and final score early
in the fourth period by intercept-
ing a pass by Sigma Nu quarter-
back, Herman Wink, Leesburg, on
his own 40 and racing all the way
to the Sigma Nu 35 before being
shoved out of bounds. Bolick took
over from there, and on three suc-
cessive line plunges, carried the
ball down to the Sigma Nu eight
yard-line. James Burke, halfback
from Jacksonville, went the final
eight yards around right end for
the score on a clever hand-off from
Bolick which caught the defense
napping. Bolick again missed the
Sigma Nu Scores
An exchange of punts after the
kick-off brought the ball to the
Phi Delt 39 yard-line where Bolick
fumbled and Sigma Nu recovered.
After Don MacInnes lost seven
yards, Les Jinks, fullback from
Panama City took over the ball-
carrying duties, and on a series of
brilliant runs advanced the ball
to the Phi Delt nine yard-line.
With only seconds to go the Sigma
Nus tried a desperation pass which
fell incomplete as the game ended.
Rain fell through-out the entire
game, and, although much of the
field was under water, the two
Fraternity teams put on a fine ex-
hibition of football for those fans
who braved the weather to see the
The Sigma Nu backs had diffi-
culty handling the wet ball from
the intricate T-formation, but
Hurse, Jinks, MacInnes, and Sut-
ton all turned in nice runs, and
Douglass and Wink turned in
creditable performances at quar-
terback. Fred Simpson, Bud Coit,
Charley Thomas, and Ed Dempsey
stood out on the line.
Al Lindgren, Jim Robinson, Joe
Burnett, and Kirk Westcott were
stand-out performers on the Phi
Delt line while Bolick and Dixon
carried the load in the backfield.

We have 1,700 acres in one plot here.
As George F. Baughman, business man-
ager, stated, "very few colleges can make
that statement." We have eight colleges
and four schools. We have 600 faculty
members, 700 apartment units, marks of
progress all over the campus, and we're
growing every day.
It is the earnest desire of the, Alumni
Association, through its new secretary,
Billy Matthews, to organize at least one
club in each of the 67 counties during the
next twelve months. Over 5,000 active
alumni by next year at this time is the
goal. President Miller would like to see
it 10,000. We would like to see such a
strong alumni association behind us.
You students with your ability and en-
thusiasm can be of invaluable aid in help-
ing form these clubs. If you are interest-
ed, the alumni office in Florida Union will
be glad to give you- lists of the alumni in
your hometown. Then, if you will make
personal calls on at least 10 or 15 alumni,
getting them to plan an organizational
meeting, a club can be organized in your
home community in no time.
You can turn these statistics around to
fit the University.
A 'Grateful Citizen' Is
Leading Way For Alumni
Following in the shadows of the drive
for a greater Alumni Association are the
benefits the University of Florida's foot-
ball team would receive with a strong
backing force behind them.
Pete Norton, sports editor of the Tampa
Tribune, and holder of the alumni plaque
for "outstanding alumnus of the year" re-
cently wrote in his column that the Flor-
ida "alumni were eager to have a winning
football team, but somewhat slow in dig-
ging into their bankrolls to finance said
After he wrote that, a "sincerely grate-
ful citizen" sent him a plan for a "one-
two club," in which 500 of the people of
the state would donate $100 each with
the understanding that the donation is
effective only if, as, and when the goal of
500' such contributions is reached. Oth-
erwise, "the $100 is to be refunded." Time
limit would be six months, and if it is
reached then, each would kick in another
$100 making the total of $100,000, the
amount that Norton mentioned needed
for the team.
Incidentally this "sincerely grateful
citizen" is not an alumnus of the school,
but is interested enough to draw up such
a plan. We heartily endorse this "one-two
club" plan, and Pete Norton for his con-
tinuous efforts. We also would like to see
more alumni clubs organized in order
to continue such a plan in the alumni
circles. We should not let non-alumnus
out-do us. So, students, back this alumni
drive in your hometown this Christmas.
Explanations Are Not
Revisions are necessary in every course,
it is said, but the suddeness with which
the "revisions" came in Comprehensive
Course 52's program of explaining Com-
munism is a subject puzzling to many. Ex-
planations have been made but they
aren't wholly satisfactory. It is difficult
to see how "misinterpretations" are go-
ing to be prevented merely by substitut-
ing a book which deals with Communism
within the United States for a book tell-
ing of Communism within Russia itself.
And why should the Communist Mani-
festo be eliminated from the program?
Surely that document tells of the aims of
Communism in a manner which leaves no
room for doubt. Karl Marx is the founda-
tion of that system which we should drive
toward keeping out of this country. There
can be no misinterpretation there.
It would seem that the misinterpreta-
tion might better be called "elements of
pressure" put on from sources which are
afraid to have University of Florida stu-
dents look at Communism in an objective
light. On one side it is said that there have
been no complaints; on another side it is
said tha t there have been but that they
shall be nameless. Someone has put the
pressure on to eliminate courses which
he, or they, want to keep out of the Uni-
versity. In order that there won't be a
complete furor it's termed a revision.
Don't muzzle Florida students. Many
fought with the Russians and learned.
something of their ways. The younger
students haven't. Let them, too, form
opinions. If they see the same things many
others saw they'll form the same intense
aversion to the Communistic system. But
give them a chance to study it carefully
or they will be perfect clay for the Reds
to mould to the shape of the USSR bear.

boomingly for peace while fear
and hate and greed wriggle with
prenatal certainty in the womb of
the soul. The pieces of black,
bloated human flesh in those pine

saw some of them die: They were
running forward; and then sud-
denly there was a ball of fire,
with its noise and plopping pieces
of mud and steel, and the young
Why did they die? Some glib
fellow told the nation that they
died because of the hamburger
and coke stand back home. That
made a good slogan, but we never
heard a man in an assault platoon
make reference to it. We believe
they died because thy had faith in
their leaders and because they had
learned to hate and fear other
mn just as other men had listened
to their leaders and learned to
hate and fear us.
Let us not deceive ourselves.
We are moving rapidly toward an-
other war. The Ukraine student
hates me, and I him. And it is not
a personal hate but one balled up
in differences of creed, and at-

triumphs. Molotov threatens and
Marshall plans, and we little men
are sold short on leadership. To
compensate for our resulting in-
feriority complex as men we en-
shrine the warhawk rather than

Apparently there can be no end
to war. The Communist is vowed
to force his police state upon the
rest of the world. And we are as
certain as he that he will not in-
clude us in his communal form
of living or get the oil from
Arabia. Would our certainty be
so strong if we could bypass
Washington and the Kremlin and
see our antagonist as a personal-

So let us allow time during
our Christmas shopping and our
songs to the Prince of Peace to
bury the stiffs being brought

Christmas Eve or one sometime
soon, we will know when we see

will broaden our outlook and round out our education!
Communism is an economic theory, a philosophy, an idea; we
will fight Communism with better ideas, not with suppression. Some
people tried to supress Christianity at one time. It just can't be
It is rather a shock to see the current wave of censorship of
ideas reaching right into our campus, at the expense of the academic
freedom we have for so long cherished.
We should be given the names and facts in this latest phase of
reaction. We could use a little light on this action which until last
week was only a rumor.
Gerald P. Sylvestre
Note: Last week it was still a rumor, -branded as being a
"ban". This week, the Alligator furnishes the facts on page one
as provided by the heads of the departments.
No One Was Selling Communism
I see in "Paranoia" that the writings of Karl Marx and Stein-
beck's "In Dubious Battle" have been banished from the C-5 course.
The Communist Manifesto has been studied for several years, (prior
to this one), as part of that course, on the grounds that it was one
of the several ideologies loose in the world today. No one was advanc-
ing it as something for us to adopt. No one was "selling it." Dr.
Davidson (Head of C-5) told me the Dept. decided to drop it because
of "outside influences," although he declined to name them. Who is it
that would try to control what we may study from a scientific point of
view? Need it be pointed out that Evolution, yes and even Christianity
and Science have been banned in the past? Dr. Davidson said that
Communism was still studied from a book dealing with the purge
trials, but this is not scientific. It is poisoningg the wells:" It is like
trying to get a clear view of Christianity by beginning with the Span-
ish Inquisition. Gen. Dwight Eisenhower (President of Columbia) says,
"Communism should be studied in our schools so that we may
know what it is about." What is the position of our president on this
issue? Dare we allow intellectual freedom to be prostituted by "out-

Who Chooses Theories?
Thorugh reports in the "Alligator" and elsewhere, I understand
that the University's C-5 department has decided to ban any reference
to Karl Marx or Steinbeck's "In Dubious Battle" from the curriculum.
I realize that the order of the day is to punish dissension and ele-
vate conformity in order that we may all be reared on only the "ap-
proved" political doctrines.
It seems that an ever increasing number of us Americans are
becoming victims of this panicky movement which is underway to
force a political orthodoxy on this country.
Under pressure of the present Red scare, let us not be led into a
state of ignorance and conformity. I, for one, would like to be told
just which individual or group of persons has taken upon themselves
the power to decide which of the "Approved" political theories will
be studied in any particular course. I would like to remind those per-
sons responsible, that the best way to maintain the democratic way
of life is to live it.

Ill-Bred Children, He Says
I see that in your editorial you have given stress to the need for
more student participation in the affairs of student government. I
fully agree with your opinions, but I am sorry to see you have have
ignored the necessity for each student to learn his responsibilities in
regard to proper citizenship and concern for the rights and property
During the last month, there has been willful destruction of
temporary buildings on the campus. The plaster-board walls of temp-
orary building E show evidence of deliberate punching of unsightly
holes all along the corridors. The walls of the various rooms are mark-
ed with writing and even obscene pictures. What started out to be
a rather attractive temporary construction is now being disfigured by
lack of appreciation by certain students. Can we look forward to the
same sort of treatment of our permanent buildings when they are
completed, or must we post a guard to keep people of mature ages
and certainly some intelligence to prepetrate such deeds which are
characteristic of ill-bred children?
If some feel the need for expression of bad manners by destroy-
ing property, then I suggest we as citizens do our duty and punish
Your response to this situation is urgently awaited and I know
the vast majority of students will back you in a campaign to eradi-
cate this blot on our campus.

Jimmy Dorsey's band breaks up
tomorrow after a Pittsburgh U.
dance and the maestro -etires, at
least so he says. However, his
agent has announced a January
engagement for Jimmy to team
up with his brother Tommy for an
Indianapolis Symphony concert.
The two will play the Dorsey
"Concerto for Trombone and
Clarinet," which was first heard
in the picture "Fabulous Dor-
seys." Jimmy's retirement (due
to nervous exhaustion) is predict-
ed by some to be permanent;
however, the symphony date, and
the fact that late February dance
engagements were not canceled,
should spike the prediction.
The FBI has issued an urgent
call for any Pacific war veterans
who think they can identify the

needs supporting evidence in its

think they can identify her voice
are urged to contact their near-
est FBI office.

The ballet world is all upset. It
seems that publ i reaction to
small ballet companies, especially
those which advertise themselves
as full groups, has been bad. The
public wants to see 40 or 50
dancers, not the 10 or so dancers
which go to make up most of the
currently touring troupes. One of
these, the Markova-Dolin group,
is scheduled for Florida appear-
ances this spring. Note to the Ly-

to secure their engagement, but

As I See 'Em By Elgin White
Most people around the campus
have probably been wondering why
there has been a terrific sale of
Meriam Websters lately. That's
easy. The great demand for the
book of words has taken place by
the migration of these so-called
critics who, for lack of something
better to do, get hold of a great
big dictionary, spend two to four
hours looking up some big, impres-
sive, ornate words, then composing
those words into these sore-head
letters to the editor.
We have received a few letters
saying that the columnists on this
paper are giving publicity to the
editorial staff, and quibbling with
each other about bandy-words
that have been thrown hither and
The last few weeks I have en-
deavored to get away from the
continual griping that people are
tired of hearing about. Students
are fed up with hearing about high
prices, the cafeteria, the book
store, and what have you.
To offer a little diversion, I have
primed my column with disserta-
tions in a humorous vein about cer-
tain campus personalities. One of
these letters we received in the of-
fice stated that the theme of the
column is 0. K., but why didn't I
choose some campus-wide person-
ality? Zounds, who on this campus
hasn't heard of Morton C. Freed-
man, Pen Gaines, and Ted Shurt-
leff? Why everyone from the
Temporary Dorm Z to the sheriff
of the county knows these boys.
The column is written to try to
give a few laughs. 0. K., so maybe
everyone doesn't think it's funny,
but then again, a lot of people do.
I have even heard from some
alumni who subscribe to the Alli-
gator that at last something dif-
ferent has been added.
You can't please everyone, can
you? I don't claim to. I am not
trying to publicize the "victims" of
this column. I am merely trying to
create a humorous situation. To
some of the esteemed crack-pots
that have nothing better to do
than sit down and compose high-
minded letters to the editor, and
who think they can do better in
the field of editorial musings, I say
come on down and put those fancy
thoughts of yours into words. The
Alligator can always use some
more good writers. The ones we
have we think are pretty good. If
you letter writers can do better,
step up, son.
Dear reader, I welcomed your
letter. At least I have two readers
you and me.
I still maintain that I have writ-
ten about campus-wide personali-
ties. I further maintain that if Joe
Doakes does something sensa-
tional, like dropping dead, I shall
use Joe as a subject.
The letter writer also complain,
ed that the movie previews weren't
up to standard. Whose standard?
What I write on the movies is my
own opinion. Naturally, it isn't go-
ing to agree with everyone else's.
If I think a picture stinks, i'll say
so. If it stinks, why write three
paragraphs saying it? I can say a
picture stinks in two words. It
stinks. See "
