Many Present


At Banquet For


Klein Graham
By Dell Loyless
More than 200 guests gathered
at the Recreation Hall Tuesdar
night for a friendship banquet hon-
oring Dr. Klein H. Graham, retir-
ing business manager. -
During the evening it was point-
ed out that Dr. Graham's friends
had gathered not for a testimonial
dinner but rather as an expression
of sincere friendship by those who
have known him and hold him in
high esteem.
The banquet was opened with an
.invocation by Dean Townes R.
Leigh and the assembly was greet-
ed by Dr, J. Hills Miller. Fol-
lowing the dinner, the Florida Glee
Club sang several songs, followed
by the presentation of six humor-
ous skits entitled "Klein's
!F-rimei." Thl,' represented a day
iii the business office with the dif-
ferent scenes centered around
each of the six presidents of the
University Dr. Graham served un-
der.
The skits were followed by a
tribute to Dr. Graham by Dr.
John J. Tigert. Dr. Graham was
then given a certificate of ap-
preciation for his services to this
community by Jess Davis, rep-
resenting the Gainesville Cham-
ber of Commerce. He also re-
ceived a book containing many
testimonial letters. Letters
from Governor Caldwell and
Senator Holland were read to
the audience. Tom Price then
presented Dr. Graham with keys
to a new Ford sedan which was
spotlighted outside the Recrea-
tion Building when the guests
left the banquet. The car was
a gift made possible by the vol-
untary donations of Dr. Gra-
ham's friends at the University,
this city and throughout the
state.
In closing remarks, Graham re-
viewed briefly his 41 years at the
University and pointed out that
through all the trials of adminis-
tration of his office, the one ideal
that had remained uppermost for
him was his love for this Univer-
sity.
Willard Fifield was master of
ceremonies for the program.
Among other guests were Mrs.
Graham, Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Tigert,
J. Hanson Markham, Col. Bland-
ing, L. K. Edwards, Sr., L. K. Ed-
wards. Jr., Leo Foster, Jay Hear-
in, Mayor-Commissioner H. W,
Gray, Paul Smith, M. R. Thomp-
son, S. B. Kennard, affectionately
known to alumni as "HTawkshaw,"
and a host of friends of Dr. Gra-
ham from throughout the state.

May Be Claimed
Several students who were re-
cent visitors at the Inflrmary
will probably be glad to know
that several items they left be-
hind when they departed are
still there. They include a bath-
robe, sweater ,a plaid shirt, and
a class ring.
If anyone who was in the In-
firmary recently has missed
these items among his belong-
ings, he can get them by proper


Auditorium Is Filled
In Paying Tribute

By Barton Johns
Florida has made real
progress in the extension of
curricula, Governor Millard
Caldwell told an audience
paying tribute yesterday to
retiring Business Manager Klein
H. Graham.
The Governor dervered the prin-
cipal address at a formal convoca-
tion honoring Dr. Graham, bus-
iness manager for the past 41
years. State officials, alumni, fac-
ulty, and student, body filled the
University auditorium to honor the
veteran staff member.
Needs To Be Met
Keynoting his address with the
statement that Florida has made
progress in the field of higher
education, the Governor however
cautioned that there were many
"pressing needs yet to be met."
He said that the state should
recognize its obligation to meet
legitimate needs In graduate and
professional education by pro-
viding courses outright or by
purchasing them by means of
some cooperative arrangement
with accredited institutions In
neighboring states.
'"The University will continue to
grow and we will need even more
facilities than have been provid-
ed," observed Caldwell. He added
that though real progress had been
made, "There is a strong demand
for training we do jot provide.
Full consideration must be' given
to the proposal that the states of
the South join in a cooperative ar-
rangement under which adequate
schools in each of such exceptional
fields be provided."
Training In Right Thinking
Stating that the vital objective
of education should be to graduate
men and wvonmen trained- in right
thinking and living, prepared.i to
accept a responsible role in society,
to'acknowled.e the debt they owe
to the community, state, and na-
tion and to become active in be-
half of the causes designed to con-
tribute to the welfare and progress
of mankind, the Governor com-
mented that Florida's record is
worthy of note.
He said, "The fact that our
schools rank fairly well in the
country is of little comfort, we can
and should have the best."
Caldwell listed the six most
pressing needs of higher educa-
tion in Florida as: (1) Mainten-
ance of a quality of work that
will meet the highest standards&
(2) Maintenance of proper con-
ditions under which serious stu-
dents may carry on their work
effectively and economically
without providing surroundings
sometimes referred to as "Coun-
try Club College Life;
(3) Provision of physical
plants adequate for the state's
educational program; (4) pro-
vision of adequate guidance for
young people in high school and
higher institutions through a
program of coordination of In-
struction with that of personal

Students Needed To Speak Before

Their Home Town High Schools


By Elgin W'hite
Important steps have been tak-
en by the University Public Re-
lations Board in its drive to send
student speakers to high schools
throughout the state for the pur-
pose of informing graduating high
school seniors about the Univer-
sity.
Principals of the high schools
throughout the state are being
contacted via letters for a specific
engagement for the student speak-
ers.
A fact sheet, condensing infor-
mation received from various
sources on the campus, has been
completed and is now in the pos-
session of an outline committee,
whose purpose and duty is to form
a general outline for the student
speakers to use as a basis for their
speeches.
It was announced by PRB of-
ficials that although the com-
mittee that Is sending letters to
the principals is laying the
groundwork for contact with
the high schools, it Is suggested

be reinstated, or at any rate gain in popularity.
The Gator eleven, after emerging from the 1947 season with
almost an even split should continue to a more favorable record
next fall. With most of the 1947 roster in their sophomore year,
the same squad is due to-comprise the 1948 team. Only this year
it will be a more experienced team, a closer knit team, a squad
having tasted blood the previous year and anxious for even more
this one.
Academically, the University will gain momentum in its new of-
ferings. For the most part the greatest strides will be taken by the
Graduate School. The doctorate is being offered and is now fully pro-
gressing in the fields of Economics, Psychology, English and. History.
Course offerings in all schools and departments will be designed to-
ward progressive aims.
Things Realized
1948 will at last be the realization of some major expansions
planned when the University found itself compelled to expand. Under
the guidance of Dr. Miller it will continue to develop under its initial
impetus. The name Florida will one day mean more than a resort
area to the nation. It will be the site of a great State University.

More than


meets the eye...


One look and you'd say that a great deal of
Work lies ahead before this new telephone
central office is completed. That's true. But
already, much of the job is done!
For months telephone men have been
hard at work-in offices and in the field.
One group has carefully studied business and
population trends and has forecast the tele-
phone needs of the community for years to
come. Another has determined the amount
and types.of equipment that will best meet
these needs. Still others have found ways to
make this new equipment a part of our
world-wide communications network.
At our Western Electric plants the tele-
phone equipment-the switchboards, fru mes
and switching mechanisms, the cable, wire S
and relays--has been scheduled and is al-
ready being manufactured.
All this and more before the ground was
broken!
The telephone business is a constantly ex- x-
panding business in which thousands of
college men are finding interesting and re-
warding careers.There'sa future in telephony.

On Palestine

Campus Professor Is
Leading Authority
Professor Paul Hanna, cited by
Bartley Crum, author of Behind
the Silken Curtain, as the out-
standing American authority on
the Middle East, will discuss the
Palestian situation at the Hillel
House, 128 College Park, Satur-
day 4 p.m.
Hanna will give his interpre-
tation of the U. N. action in
granting partition and creating
separate Arab and Jewish states.
He will also explain other plans
of settling the disputes as ad-
vanced by several Jewish poli-
tical parties in Palestine, notably
that of the Hashomer Hatzoir and
their plan of a bi-national state,
which may observers feel will be
the choice of Palestine within the
next few years.
Hanna will also go into a dis-
cussion of the current problems
in Palestine, describing his im-
pressions of both Arab and Jew-
ish military strength. This is the
second in a series of cultural pro-
grams on Zionist topics sponsored
by the Florida Chapter of the In-
tercollegiate Zionist Federation of
America. All students are wel-
come and urged to attend.
Further information concerning
the Palestine situation will be
presented at the Florida Union
Auditorium Saturday at 7:30 p.

on Palestine will be shown.

Meetings
New rules for visiting hours at

Friday. Now the visiting sched-
ule has been extended to eight
and one half hours instead of just
three hours daily.
Visiting hours under the new
schedule are as follows: Monday
through Friday 11 a.m. until
2 p.m., and from 5 p.m. until

Whaf Happened Last Year Can


Hardly Be Put In One Story


Continuous Rush
Of Events Kept
Students Busy

By Sandy Geer & Kytle Williams
It was a great year for the Uni-
versity just about everything
that could have happened, did.
Things got underway early in
the year when the city of Gaines-
ville levied some new taxes,
thereby endearing itself' to the
hearts of all the students. Feb-
ruary saw the foundation of "The
Committee of 67," a group of stu-
dents who were to acquaint the
people of 'Florida with the needs
of the University.
March was the big month for
the boys in khaki Dean Hud-
son came back to school to play
for Military Ball.
April brought hot weather
and hot campus politic s pol-
iticoes formed a new party -
The -Florida party. Spring elec-
tions resulted in a close race
for president of the student
body, the nod finally going to
John Crews, Dixie party candi-
date, although the Gator party
made almost a clean sweep of
the other offices. After elec-
tion, the Dixie and Florida
groups merged to form the
powerful All-Student machine.
Competing for headlines in
this month was Block and Bri-
dle's annual rodeo, and the
news that the man with the
horn, Harry James, had been
signed for 'Spring Frolics.
During May students took at
least one deep breath as an X-ray
unit was set up on campus and
thousands got an inside glance of
their lungs. Over in the Engin-
eering College, the slide rule boys
were having a big time at their
Engineer's Field Day. Suddenly
everything came to a screeching
halt as the largest post war grad-
uating class, 281 strong, left their

Summer School began with the

of the U. of Florida, a whopping
4,700. Significant of the antici-
pated coeducation for the fall ses-
sion was the increased number of
80 coeds who attended the sum-
mer session.
As soon as registration was
finished, politics moved in on
the front stage with a presiden-
tial race so close that the win-
ner, Joe Johnson, scored his
victory by the margin of a sin-
gle vote, the closest race in the
history of campus politics.

Things really looked as if wom-
en were here to stay, and they
were.
The IFC got the social plans'
rolling by the planning of a Sum-
mer Frolics on Aug. 8-9 with Les
Elgart and his band providing the
music. When the Frolics rolled-,
around with anticipation, it
found welcome acceptance and
mournful goodbyes when it left.
Not to give the impression
that social events were on the
wane, Summer School Dances
were given at Florida Union
and the Lyceum Council pre-
sented Mac Morgan, baritone,
in an outstanding performance.
Florida Players next presented
the first of its two Summer pro-:
ductions, "Antigone," with re-
sounding applause for its work.
Florida Union gave a "Farm-',
er's Frolics" in between sessions
and the ALLIGATOR grew to a
full eight column newspaper.
The State Improvement Commis-
and the Flavet Villages as a re-
sult had children's playgrounds
and nurseries added to their.
grounds. Relief for students and.
.professors was announced by.

of 300 teachers in the last year
and recent $1,000,000 purchase

The Summer Session wound up
with'a Labor Day holiday, exams

With a record enrollment of over

Advertisements Are Few -

Forced To Use Less News
The editorial staff again ran up against
its toughest problem this week-that of
cutting and selecting stories in order to
slice down our huge flow of copy for a
small paper.
This campus warrants at least an eight-
page paper nearly every week in order to
give all the news. The lack of advertise-
ments from local merchants have caused
us to crowd as much in a small paper as
possible.
We cannot understand this predica-
ment. Of course, our paper is larger this
year than in many years, and this requires
many more advertisements than in pre-
vious years. Our student body enrollment
and our circulation is tops now, reaching
nearly 11,000 paid circulation.
In years past, advertisers presented ads
primarily as donations. This year, the
paper serves a huge community, and each
advertiser should realize the great bene-
fit of space in this paper.
We regret the small size of this paper,
but hope that we can continue to extend
the quality and services in weeks ahead.

In Winter Our Minds Turn

To Summer School Hours
In the middle of the winter, our minds
turn to summer, or rather, our minds have,
been turned to Summer School several
times in recent days.
Several students, who evidently went to
summer school here last year, have urg-
ed the ALLIGATOR to take a stand on a
five-day week. Last summer, many stu-
dents urged that each class-hour be ex-
tended fifteen minutes and cut the num-
ber of class-days down to five a week be-
cause of the intense heat and the exten-
sive studying one has to accomplish dur-
ing a crowded summer.
One of the reasons given was the lack
of classrooms. (This was before the temp-
orary classrooms were completed for use
this fall).
With more class rooms available and


with the enrollment expected to drop to
half its present number, it seems that the
plans for Summer School could include
longer classes, with a longer week-end.


Next Few Weeks Will Tell;,

What Is Your Decision?

In the next few weeks future plans of
many members of the student body will
be decided. These are weeks in which
some men and women will make wise use
of their time and jump that fearful aca-
demic borderline to go on toward getting
a college degree, a degree that will ad-
mittedly help them in later life. Others
will fall .short and either resign or take a
setback.
A great number -of students will be
able to lick their courses with some
"cramming" before the examinations.
There are a few weeks before the finals.
Careful application of this time will bring
many students out on top and they will
go ahead in the direction of that degree
they desired when they entered school.
What are your plans for the short time
remaining ?


Do You Gripe About Profs?

Here's Your Big Chance

Professor Howard Wilson, of Loyola
University, has emerged with an idea
which may work for the betterment of
the harassed student. Wilson's plan is to
discover the answer to the question of
"What is the good college professor?"
Toward this end he asks students
throughout the United States to write him
a letter listing their complaints, criticisms
and points they admire most in their pro-
fessors.
The apparently well-meaning Profes-
sor Wilson perhaps will accomplish a few
reforms but it is to be hoped that this new
creature of his stays in control. Shades
of Frankenstein and Pygmalian.
Wilson's address is Loyola University,
820 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago 11,

Green Light, Clear Road

Await Florida's Students

The year 1947 was an ex-press highway leading di-
rectly into the super highway of 1948, .down which the
University of Florida will travel. Florida traveled at great
speed along the 1947 road and will continue at the same
rapid pace this year. .
In the year just past more was done for the Univer-
sity than in any previous one. We have gone far. During
the next 12 months students will continue to lead the
growth and will long remember the part they played.
Plans for 1948 call for expression by the student body
many times on important issues. We have our part and are
proud.

There's the question of Henry
V-
Still no progress has been made
toward bringing the British film
here. The local theatres have in-
effectively tried to secure 'the pic-
ture (Tallahassee saw it last
month); although, there is still the
possibility, and even the probabili-
ty, I am told, that Gainesville will
see it eventually, that is.
This specific instance, seems to
me to demonstrate the inadequacy
of ordinary commercial channels
im securing cultural and entertain-
ment benefits for University stu-
dents. It seems to emphasize the
need for some means of film pre-
sentation right here on the cam-
pus. There are innumerable films
of a combined entertainment and
educational nature which the Uni-
versity misses and will miss be-
cause of complete dependence on
outside interests.
Now, the Metropolitan Opera is
allowing its performances to be
filmed; and if the plans material-
ize, before too long, prints will be
released to colleges and universi-
ties exclusively. Will this univer-
sity see them? Well-I'm rather
pessimistic about the ot the outlook, as
far as I can see, the possible view-
ing of the opera pictures, as well
as many others, too, is dependent
on the installation of adequate
projection facilities on the campus.
But-that would bring opposi-
tion from state theatre groups-.
after all, we mustn't have a state
university competing with private
enterprise. This sad tale has been
told many times,, but it seems to
me that there is an answer which
remains at the end of each tell-
ing. This university exists prim-
arily for the purpose of educating
Florida men and women. A part of
that education is their 'cultural de-
velopment. Perhaps it is only my
personal conclusion, that anything
which deprives Florida students of
as wide an educational background
as it is possible to obtain-that


any such obstacle to their cultural
development is regrettable.
A word though, for the local
motion picture houses-Mr. Ro-
berts, manager of Gainesville's
theatres, is a reasonable man. He
tries hard to secure the best films
for us; although, I imagine his
hands are pretty well tied and fair-
ly often. At this moment he is try-
ing to secure some of the better
foreign films for local showing.
This is an admirable project-but
undoubtedly the pictures will have
to be commercially successful.
This is not assured at all. Now,
this is not to infer that if the Uni-
versity were to present pictures,
that we should expect them to con-
tinue for long without their man-
aging to pay for themselves-it
probably would be desirable to
have a backing organization such
as the Lyceum Council, though.
Providing that projection equip-
ment costs were met by state ap-
propriation, or some other means,
the expense and margin of profit
miglit be lowered to the point
where commercial success would
be assured for any worthwhile
film, regardless of whether the
townspeople of Gainesville sup-
ported it or not.
All the foregoing argument de-
pends on the contention that good
motion pictures are worthwhile-
that they contribute to a person's
educational and cultural develop-
ments-that they may be a strong
influence on thought and be-
havior. The foregoing has assumed
that good films are those which
inspire or edify through the repre-
sentation of human life that life
is worth knowing about, and that
learning about it is a part of edu-
cation. I think few will deny that
.motion pictures have a great deal
to offer-especially, the excep-
tional ones, the great ones. Yes,
I'm in favor of good movies. When
they aren't available at an educa-
tional institution, I think it's about
time something should be done
about it. What do you think?

Ordinary Times By H. G. (Buddy) Davis


"Heaven the Coney Island of
the Christian Imagination," de-
fined the late Elbert Hubbard,
noted author of a generation ago.
Hubbard, writer of the famed
"Message to Garcia," would be
considered even more an authority
today, since he and his wife lost
their lives in the sinking of the
unsinkable Lusitania.
This definition is highlighted
this week because of a meeting of
Roman Catholic clergy in Miami
last Sunday. Somewhat critical of
an organism called man, one
learned bishop said, "Man, be-
cause of his material success, has
taken God for granted, although
it is true that many of them be-
lieve in God, life after death, and
follow the principles of justice
and kindness to one's fellow
man."
The materialism of our time has
definitely subtracted from the
overall meditation of God. It is a
far heyday from medieval times
with their other-worldly attitude
and life filled with one contempla-
tion-death and the land of no re-
turn. Ours is a realistic world, and
we move for realistic reasons.
Every action must be profitable
for economic, social, or cultural
advances. But this is a character-
ization of the times, and the
church cannot be held responsible.
Here it is necessary to distin-
guish between a spiritual belief in
God and the worldly institution
known as the church. That one
should question the existence of
God is inconceivable. George Gal-
lap, director of the Gallop Poll,
says that he can even prove God
statistically. Take the human
body alone, he says, the chance


that all the functions of the indi-
vidual could just happen is'a sta-
tistical monstrosity.
But the management of the
church rests in human hands.
That man often falters an d
merits criticism is the bitter re-
mark of most philosophers.
We have learned that 96 per-
cent of Americans believe in God,
b u t only about half attend
churches. It appears that the
Christian church as an institu-
tion can be blamed with failing
to fulfill its most important func-
tion that of caring for the spir-
itual well-being of humanity. The
church, despite the accusation of
the bishop in Miami, has absorbed
its share of "material access."
Or, as the American philoso-
pher John Dewey said, the chief
danger to religion lies in the fact
it has become respectable.
The institution has come a long
way since Peter received the keys
of the kingdom of Heaven. We
now have the Catholic ritual, the
Anglican compromise, the Unitar-
ian intellectualism, the Baptist
and Methodist evangelism, and
numerous sects, one of whom even
holds that the earthly life is Hell.
The church utilizies creeds which,
in many cases, it fails to explain
to its members. (This author re-
calls one Protestan minister who
could not explain the phrase "the
quick and the dead"). And we
have a complicated language -1
the pyx, ciborium, corporal an-
tependium and stole.
This is a far cry from the
simple words, "Thou are Peter,
and upon this rock I will build
my church."


What the world craves today is
a more spiritual and less formal
religion. Christianity has not
failed it cannot fail. But it
can be abused with a consequent
lack of faith.
Christianity has made unparal-
led mistakes in the Far East. The
Western exploitation of the East
was no bed-fellow for the broth*
early love taught by Christ. One
Oriental observer said that he
could never accept the modern
church because it made converts
by injecting the consciousness of
sin. Another oriental made -the
classic remark. "I am so P0-
foundly religious by nature that
the religions often' make me fur-
ious."
All of this is not written on
the pages of history books but is
a contemporary matter which
each of us face when we hear the
1 a d ies auxiliary announcements
on Sunday mornings. We face it
in cold type on the program,
"Flowers on the Altar today are
the gift of "
Regardless of how we use thi
church, it is with us today. And
since it transcends all ''."I ''I"'
of color and race and r.re,"'"
the tenets of love, we place on
the highest hopes for n.l'. '.*;s
true brotherhood of mail ,v
resulting lasting peace.
And until the church fulfills 'i
mandates on this earth, it might
be well to keep God in mind, as
Abraham Lincoln did when he'
said
"I have been driven m1any times
to my knees by the overwhelm
ing conviction that 1 had no-
where else to go."
