ss reports, there seems to be
n during the wee small hours
of the morning. One would think
that there is an awful lot of bon-
ing being done at these and other
times. And he would be right.
The time has rolled past very
swiftly and exams are upon us.
Twenty-four hours, much less 12
or 14, are not enough to do every-
thing and learn all the subjects.
Therefore every advantage is be-
ing taken of every minute of the
day and night.
Midnight oil is a precious com-
modity on the campus, and there
seems to an abundance of it being
used. Coffee is swilled by the
quarts. Hair is laying on the floor
as exasperated students tear it out
by the roots. Sleep is seldom
thought about with more than
vague wishfulness, and when sleep
finally is sought it is more like a
stupor than anything else.
Typical scenes in the dormi-
tories would show the hapless in-
mates burning a hole in a book
with an endless profusion of texts
scattered around. Read one page
and the next and then go back and
start all over again. It seems that
the mind will not concentrate at
this, the most important moment
in the semester. They curse the
individual who saunters into the
room saying, "I haven't cracked a
book in the last two weeks," anid
then comes back with an "A" on
his exam. They are the last straw
to those of us who slave up until
time for the test and when we go
into the exam room, promptly for-
get everything we ever knew
about the cussed stuff.
Well, the cycle will go on for-
ever and those who come after us
will go through the same prob-
lems. But what consolation is that
to us? None whatsoever.
I wonder if women do the same
things we do during these crucial
times ?

Says Stelle
We fight to gain the peace but
do we keep it when we have re-
gained it, asked John Selle,
Gainesville attorney, at the
monthly meeting of American Le-
gion Post No. 157 this week.
"We do not want war," said
Selle, "yet peace doesn't fall into
our laps. We have to fight for it
through the energy and enthus-
iasm that is used to fight a war."
'Selle stated further that, we
should maintain our prestig. .;.i,
the eyes of the 'orld by making
ourselves well-respected.,
"Citizens can transmit their
ideas to national policy," said
Selle, "by expressing themselves
in writing to their representa-
tives and by voting."
The Post has started circula-
tion of a Universal Military

will continue for one more week. It
is also sponsoring a student from

Religion Courses

Attract Students

First Started
In 1946
Courses offered by the Depart-
ment of Religion at the Univer-
sity of Florida are attracting stu-
dents from many departments of
the University, in addition to
those interested in pre-minister-
ial training, according to a recent
survey. I
Established in 1946, after a
:comprehensive study by a com-
mittee* of faculty members, the
department seeks to present re-
ligion to students as -it has devel-
oped in American culture and
among American institutions.
The most popular course at the
present time is that ,in- compara-
tive religion. Additional work is
offered in, the religions founda-
tions of modern life, the Old
Testament in the light of today,
the life if Jesus, and problems of
religious philosophy.
At present two faculty mem-
bers are now instructing full-time
in the department, and two addi-
tional courses are being planned
in the general area of religious
education a n d contemporary
American religion.,

The Stu.i.nt Religious Associa-
tion and Ln,M D,:partmni:t, of Re-
ligion will present a lecture on
"India in Transition" by John
Williams' Hughes, Friday, Jan. 16,
at 8 p. m. in the Student Union
Hughes is a native of Wales and
is now lecturing in the United
States under the auspices of vari-
ous missionary groups. He is a
former staff correspondent for a
number of British papers and has
served in India, the Philippine Is-
lands and the Dutch East Indies.
During World War II he served
for a time as a liaison and educa-
tion officer for British and Amer-
ican forces in Britain. During the
latter part of the war, he served
with the British, forces in India
wherhehe was engaged in training
Indian officers to lecture among
their own people. He has also had
close contact with the Welch mis-
sion in Assam Province, India.
In 1945 he stood unsuccessfully
for the British Parliament in his
home district and is already mak-
ing plans to stand again in 1950.
At the present time Hughes is de-
livering a series of lectures -in
Florida on behalf of the Florida
Chain of Missionary Assemblies.
This is the thild program spon-
sored by the newly formed Student
Religious Association and it is the
plan to conduct a program every
month. The next program will be
in February in connection with
Religious Emphasis Week.

Help From All

Campus And Grounds
To Get Extensive
Face Lifting

By Dell Loyless
One of the biggest camp-
us improvement programs,
with student participation,
got underway this week here
with the announcement that
a, huge Rehabilitation and Im-
provement campaign will continue
well into next semester.
Students are being asked to
watch the Alligator for special ar-
ticles and stories on the ways and
means that they will be asked to
aid such a program. .
"In this program," George F.
Baughman, assistant business
manager, stated, 'everyone on
the campus will have a part,
from the administrative -staff,
the students, to the grounds de-
The Grounds Department is well
into a program of rehabilitation
that will sweep through the entire
campus during the next several
months and reach practically
every square foot of groind'here.
The grounds department doubled
its number of employees at the
beginning of the Christmas holi-
days and the augmented staff has
been kept busy since then attempt-
ing to erase the "battle scars"
from this once beautiful campus.
Joe Crevasse, the general new
superintendent of grounds listed
several of the accomplishments
since the department's rejuvina-
tion just before Christmas. Dur-
ing the holidays a ton of Rye
grass was spread over the camp-
us and much of the shrubbery
replaced. Then last week five
hundred Pine slips were planted
around campus and will be fol-
lowed up with five hundred
more next week.
The first of many areas to be
reclaimed on camptis were dressed
:.up last week also,; The.'sectiln im-
mediately back- .f the temporary
building:.housing the fecreational
hall was .completely resodded,
stak-d off'and'shrubbery placed in
that area. This week the same
program of"rehabilitation is going
on at every, entrance to the Uni-
versity grounds from University
Avenue. Included on. the program
for next Week, the area around the
Dairy Laboratory will have a com-
plete face lifting and a large num-
ber of Live Oaks six or eight feet

Florida Players' Performance

Most Enjoyable Of Season

Crowd Jams P.K. Yonge Auditorium; Many Turned
Away From Successful Comedy

By Gerald Clarke
Last Friday's performances of
four one act plays by the Florida
Players and the Department of
Speech made the evening the
most enjoyable of the season. The
audience which jammed P. K.
Yonge auditorium many were
turned away-was genuinely en-
It would have been difficult to
arrange a program more accept-
able to a college audience. While
the bill was heavily weighted on
the side of comedy, it was bal-
anced by an excellent production
of one of the best modern one act
tragedies. Each one of the four
student directors gave his play a
highly individual treatment. Stag-'
ing and casting were at almost all
times far more than just ade-
Opening with Stanley Hough-
ton's "The Dear Departed," direct-
ed by Margaret Marshall, the bill
got off to a reasonable start. The
script was undoubtedly less inter-,
esting than the other three, and
it could have been interpreted dif-
ferently; however, the audience
enjoyed it.
"Freedom's Bird" by Betty
Smith was a special case. The
play did not aspire to heights and
yet it was thoroughly successful.
It did everything it set out to do.
It entertained the audience. By
performing the Smith piece at the
edge of the stage the director,
Leonard Mosby, achieved an .ef-
fect which made the audience feel
that it was participating. How-


THE $64 QUESTION-Here's a real life story which comes to us
'rom a young lady who ran all the way home from Lake W6rth to
.:e our deadline. This gal, one of Harry Popover's fairest, was tak-
a lone stroll in the woods along the lake. It was warm-one of
..;se sleepy days and she soon foimd a deligitfhully secluded cove, the

ard Clarke, Sanford Schnier, Lar-
ry Mansfield, and Robert Salis-
bury were all well cast. Clarke
brought down the house with his
characterization of an ignorant
North Carolina settler.
Admirably directed by Stephen
Sands, "Hello Out There" by Wil-
liam Saroyan was the meat and
potatoes of the evening. The
piece was so well handled that it
embarrassed a large section of the
audience. When they caught
themselves giving in to the mood
of the tragedy, they defended
themselves by laughing inappro-
priately and cynically at lines and
situations 'with deep, tragic impli-
cations. Gradually the psuedo-so-
phisticated group broke down and
began to enjoy the play for what
it was, a moving story of simple
people and pure emotions, unre-
strained by sophomoric cynicism.
White Palmer turned in a sen-
sitive performance in a difficult
part. With restraint he made his
role so compelling-so completely
acceptable that almost no one
could fail to appreciate the ter-
rific impact of the play's climax.
Rosemary Flanagan was won-
derfully successful with her part,
which also offered numerous dif-
ficulties. William Morrow and
Kitty Callanan handled their parts
ably. The expressionistic set and
well selected music helped make
"Hello Out There" a dramatic suc-
If the Saroyan was the meat
and potatoes on the bill, certain-
ly Chekov's "A Marriage Propos-
al" was dessert. This well con-
structed Russian comedy was well
handled by Director Pat O'Neal
and performed in excellent fash-
ion by Rita Seestedt, Austin Cal-
laway,, and Tom Hicks. Descend-
ing to slapstick at times-if it is
a descent-the small cast extract-
ed all kinds of humor from the
play. Callaway was extremely en-
tertaining. Rita Seestedt, as an
old-maid daughter, provided the
realistic ground on which the com-
edy was built.
To sum up: the evening was
very much of a success. The only
regret which this reviewer has,
is that the group of plays cannot
be seen by those who could not
crowd into the auditorium last
Friday night and by the many who
wanted to .attend, but who were
unable to arrange their schedule.
The bill certainly provided an eve-
ning of worthwhile entertain-

banks lined with soft, inviting moss. Warm from her walk she decid-

ed to take a plunge. To dry herself she lay down in the sun on the
mossy bank. Suddenly she heard a noise, and although startled,
thought it was one of the local urchins who played around the lake. So
she called, "How old are you little boy?" a yoice replied: "Sixty four,
dammit" (and he didn't even get a fountain pen).

ORDERS FROM THE FRONT-A communique from the
parade grounds has it that the Military Ball will again be one, of our
biggest social events. To us it has always rivalled Frolics in that It is
more sociable, more gay and so much.more eventful. And as in the
past the military might have decreed the Ball to be Formal-the ad-
vanced agents of the ROTC will of course be all spit and polish but us
poor civilians will fall in with dinner jackets and tuxedoes. So you see
that the Mlitary Ball supersedes all other University events in the
fact that all will be formal and that is the way it should be.. And
speaking of formal furnishings, Silverman's in town have the 'com-
pletest' line of formal habiliment this side of Saks Fifth Avenue.
Everything from blue dinner jackets to the new shawl lapeled jacket,
shoes, lnks, and we even think he can dig you up a cummerbund!

HUNTING SEASON-We never. saw tickets sell so fast in all our
born days as those for the Shakesperean plays "Merchant of Venice"
and "Macbeth" to be presented Monday. We are certainly getting a
break both in price and performance to see old Will's favourites. If

Wesley Foundation

Chimes Purchased

By UF Students
That ringing in your ears each
Sunday morning about 9 o'clock
may not be what you think it is.
In all probability you wpre listen-
ing to the chimes coming from
the tower of the Wesley Founda-
tion, Methodist Student Center on
University Ave.
About a year ago several stu-
dents at the Wesley Foundation
purchased the chimes. Operation
of the device involves a phono-
graph with two separate circuits.
One circuit allows the music to
float out over the loudspeakers
in the tower for a radius of about
a mile while the other circuit
feeds the program into the chapel
of the building.
,.According to Rev. Thaxton
Springfield, chaplain for Metho-
dist students, the foundation
now owns about 18 different rec-
ords of chime music, offering a
wide variety of selections. Pro-
grams are played from the tower
each Sunday morning at 9 a.m.
and from the chapel each Sunday

Engineers Have

An Opportunity

For Employment

Needed For

By Alvin Burt
University of Florida engineer-
ing students now have opportuni-
ties for career employment with
the Bureau of Reclamation on re-
clamation projects located through-
out the seventeen western states.
Projects are engaged in design-
ing and constructing dams, irriga-
tion canals, p6wer plants, trans-
mission lines and equipment, per-
tinent roads, railroads, bridges,
steel and concrete structures, and
drainage works.
To accomplish this work on the
scale presently authorized, means
that now, and in the future, the
technical knowledge an.d practical
experience of people possessing
qualifications in engineering spe-
cialities will be needed. Many en-
gineering graduates have the basic
qualifications needed for these
positions. Those interested should
file application for Federal em-
ployment with the Bureau of Re-
clamation in order that they may
be given consideration as positions
become available.
There are immediate opportuni-
ties for temporary appointments
with the Bureau which provide an
opportunity for gaining experience
and taking the examination for
permanent appointments at a later
date. Anyone desiring to apply for
such temporary appointments
should send an application for
Federal employment, Form 57, to
the Chief, Personnel Field Office,
Bureau of Reclamation, Denver
Federal Center, Denver, Colorado.
The Bureau also has an engineer
trainee program through which
engineering students in their soph-
omore, junior, and senior years
may obtain sub-professional en-
gineering position during the
summer months and, after gradua-
tion, go right into professional en-
gineering positions. Appointments
to these positions are made local-
Students who are interested
should send their applications to
the Personnel Field Office at Den-
ver, marking them for the en-
gineer-trainee program.

Univ. Employees

To Be Charged

For Camp Use
Will Pay Annual Fee
Of One Dollar

By Jack Bryan
All University employees, who
have heretofore been allowed free
use of the facilities of Camp Wau-
burg, will pay an annual fee for
the privilege in the future.
Bill Bion, acting director of
Florida Union, made public this
week a letter which announced
that, beginning Jan. 15, all em-
ployees of the University of Flor-
ida, with the exception of bona
fide students and students' wives,
will be required to pay $1 per year
for use of Camp Wauburg.
Wauburg is a University-owned
recreation park, situated on Lake
wauburg nine miles south of
Gainesville, and operated by Flor-
ida Union exclusively for Univer-
sity personnel.
Authority for this action came
from the Florida Union Board of
Managers, who pointed out that
approximately 45 per cent of the
entire usage of the camp is made
by members of the faculty and
niministrative staff of the Univer-
sity This being the case, said the
board, it is only fair that these
employees should have a ahare in
the camp operation and mainte-
Rion revealed that Camp Wau-
burg is supported at present by
a small appropriation from the
state and by student fees through
the Florida Union budget. This
financial situation has proved in-
adequate for proper maintenance.
The camp has been the main
problem of the union governing
board for the past several years,
it was stated. The facilities of the
camp have been increased during
the past year but are still far
short of those needed to make the
camp complete, according to the
Board of Managers, who opinioned
that Wauburg maintenance *has
not reached the standard they be-
lieve is necessary.
Rion's letter declared that "it
was the feeling of the board that
this fee would be similar to a
membership to the camp, the privi-
leges of which would be available
only to the members of the staff
and their immediate families."
This recommendation has been au-
thorized and approved by the pres-
ident of the University.
University employees may ob-
tain their membership cards from
the cashier's office in Language
Hall. In order to properly enforce
the new ruling, no member of the
faculty, the administrative staff or
other University employees will
be allowed entrance to Camp Wau-
burg without a membership card.
Establishment of the fee system
is expected to aid Rion and his
associates materially in their pro-
gram of developing Wauburg to
the fullest extent. Work on the
project is already under way with
the construction of a new bath
house. Other facilities yet to be
constructed include outdoor ovens,
and a new dock.
Both Rion and the Board of
Managers have asked for the co-
operation of employees in this mat-
ter, as it is their desire to make
Camp Wauburg a great asset to
the University of Florida.

Crevasse pointed out that
these are just some of the im-

underway recently and the full
program is really an intensive
one. However, he pointed out, it
will be absolutely necessary to
have the full cooperation of the
students for the full effective-
ness of this work to show up in

pecially requested that students
show more thoughtfulness and
refrain from walking over new-
ly planted grass areas and push-

Sept. 30, making the University
of Florida the 12th largest state

in the nation. However, when the

the number shrank to 8,254 and

Applications Sought

For Flight Training

G. I. Trainees Ruled Eligible
Under Certain Conditions

Students desiring to partici-
pate in the flight training course
which is open to Aeronautical
Engineering ma j or students
should contact Professor C. R.
Pearson, Room 118, Faculty Of-
fice Building.
This course which was recent-
ly approved by the University
consists of a flight training and
ground course leading to the pri-
vate pilot's license. The purpose
of this course is to give Aeronaut-
ical Engineering students an op-
portunity to become acquainted
with the problems and basic prin-
ciples involved in actual flight.
This training program is not a re-
quired part of the Aeronatical En-
gineering curriculum and must
be voluntarily elected by the stu-
Three Hours Credit
The course carries three semes-
ter hours of credit and will re-
quire three hours of flight per
week in addition to the four hours
of ground school per week. The
approximate cost of this course
is $500 and those students who
are receiving training under the
G. I. .Bill are eligible under cer-
tain conditions.
Veteran students having aif el-
igibility in excess of that requir-
ed for their completion of their
college program in the amount of
8 months may use this 8 months
excess eligibility in accelerated
rate for paying the cost of this

course. All students must, of
course, be able to pass the neces-
sary physical examination and
must ,have sufficient time avail-
able in their collegiate program
to permit them taking this addi-
tional course without sacrifice, to
tHeir normal program.
Students who are not enrolled
in Aeronautcial Engineering are
not eligible for rhis course. Non-
veteran students who are enroll-
ed in Aeronautical Engineering
may take this course upon pay-
ment of the course laboratory fee.
Any student anticipating taking
this course should immediately
make contact with Professor
Pearson in order that plans for
offering the course this next se-
mester may be completed.
Professor Thompson, head of
the Aeronautical Enigneering De-
partment, has expressed the opin-
ion that the inclusion of this
course for men who have had no
flight experience is highly desir-
able from the Aeronautical En--
gineering viewpoint since this
background will enable these men
to more readily understand many
of 'the problems later encounter-
ed in the advanced courses. Men
who have had previous flight ex-
perience are not eligible for this
course, and this previous exper-
ience will serve them in the same
capacity as those taking this
course .

'Life In Flavet'

Story Carried

In Magazine

Describes Location
And Construction
Of Villages

The December issue of College
and University Business, a pro-
fessional journal for business of-
ficials of colleges carried a story
about the construction of the
Flavet villages on this campus.
Titled "Life in a Student Village,"
it was written by George F.
Baughman, assistant business
manager of the University.
Baughman's article was headed
by an attractive picture of part
of Flavet II and the story de-
scribes the location and construc-
tion of the three villages. Con-
siderable space is devoted to
apartment furnishings, utilities ar-
rangements and a description of
the Cooperative grocery, mention-
ing that it was started by a group
of students who spent much ef-

Something new in the way <
musical organizations has appear
ed on the University of Florid
campus-the Girls' Glee Club.
When the University officials
became co-ed last fall and 50
women students arrived in Gaines
ville, Professor John W. DeBruyi
veteran director of the male Gle
Club, was quick to recognize tha
there would be some good voice
on the distaff side of the campu
community, and he went into ac
tion immediately.
An invitation was issued to al
girls interested in choral work tA
meet with DeBruyn, and thus th
first female Glee Club in the his
tory of this institution was borr
Because of the small number a
coeds, it was decided to exten
membership in the organization
to wives of students and feminine
employees of the University a
well as coeds, and the present
group has representatives from al
three of these classes.
First meeting of the Club wea
held on Nov. 17, 1947, and th.
girls elected Mrs. Majel Barret
to serve as their chairman unti
the election of regular officers
After helping the neophyte groul
get started, DeBruyn returned tc
his pressing duties with the boys
and appointed Tommy Fay, one o:
his prize soloists with the male
club, to ,be director of the Girls
Glee Club.
Fay's selection was a happy
choice, according to the lassies
and Mrs. Barrett, speaking for
the group, stated that they were
well-pleased with Tommy's hard
work, his knowledge of music, and
his ability to get the girls. to work
The Girls' Glee Club is composed
of approximately 35 active mem-
bers at present,, and Fay is Insti-
tuting a new policy of tryouts
which he expects. to result in a
more efficient and smoother blend
of voices, as well as to determine
who the future soloists of the club
will be:
First public appearance of the
women singers was last Dec. 17,
when they were invited to appear
as guest artists with the regular
Glee Club in a Christmas concert.
To date, all of their singing has
been to the accompaniment of the
piano, but some a capella num-
bers.will be worked into their pro-
grams in the future. Bill Loucks,
another member of the boys' Glee
Club, is accompanist for the girls.

Latin Relations
Mostly Business
Writes Matherly

Dean Walter J. Matherly, 'of the
College of Business Administra-
tion, recently decried the tendency
of "our own people to -place busi-
ness before everything else in our
relations with our South American
neighbors." He made the state-
ment in the current issue of Eco-
nomic Leaflets, published monthly
by the Bureau of Economics and
Business Research.
Throughout the article, Mather-
ly pointed to the progress already

band to five men. During the
same month he began his series
of Saturday night engagements at
the Club 400, where he has con-
tinued to play for the past nine-
teen months.
Joe has also played for Sum-
;uer School dances, and alternat-
ed during the early part of this
semester with the Bob McCorkle
band for the Friday night dances
in the Campus Recreation build-
Most of the band's arranging is
done by Larry Gibson, says Har-
rison, but some of' the music is
"head stuff"-popular tunes that
are memorized. Joe likes playing
with small bands, but enjoys hear-
ing the bigger outfits, especially
Stan, Kenton's band, and Woody
Herman's former group.
Home In Shamrock
Although Joe's home is in
Shamrock, which he describes as
being "about 50 miles out Univer-
sity Avenue", he has lived in
Gainesville since 1938.
He begins graduate school in
February and expects to continue
with his band work.

Hemisphere the way to a lasting
renunciation of war; but at the
same time, he repeatedly de-
nounced the complacency of the
United States toward the culture
of its neighbors. He declared that
the peoples of the Americas "know
entirely, too little of each it nei
language, literature and learning."

Phi Delt Housemother Has

Large Place To Care For
Mrs. Mott Is Graduate Of Mt. Holyhoke;
Worked With Board Of Health

By Roger Long

all. Mrs. Helen B. Mott has made
an enjoyable career out of serving

Born in Jackson, Michigan, and
then a graduate of Mt. Holyhoke
at Ann Arbor, Mrs. Mott first
started her career as dormitory
director for Jordan Hall at the
University of Michigan and later
as housemother to the Phi Delta
at that university. Coming to
Florida with her husband because
of her illness, she became house-
mother for the Chi Omegas at the
University of Miami. Remember-
ed for her kind and helpful pres-
ence at the University of Michi-
gan, she was sought out by the
Phi Delta Thetas to come and be
their first housemother here at the
In her position, she can not plan
her duties and says they are many
and varied. In addition to host-
ess, Mrs. Mott plans the menus
and directs the preparation of the
meals. The Phi Delta trust to her
knowledge and seem well satisfied
with the excellent results.
Since she first came to Gaines-

her to increase her experience and
therefore bring a more expansive
and beneficial knowledge to bear
on her career.

Clubs And Fraternities In
As School Attend
At its last meeting Jan. 12,- the
Agriculture Club was host to the
invited guests of all the clubs and
fraternities of the Agricultural
The clubs represented at the
meeting decided to appoint a com-
mittee to formulate plans to or-
ganize an Agriculture College
Council, composed of all the clubs
and professional fraternities in the
college, and present the plan at
the beginning of the second se-
Plans were also made to expand
the Agriculture Club membership.
It was suggested that the other
clubs present educational and rec-
reational programs before the Ag
Club at various times during the
year. These programs based on
their own interests would give
others an idea of the purpose and
work of each club.
President John Warrington re-
ported that the Block and Bridle
Club was behind the reactivation
of the Florida College Farmer and
had nominated their representa-
tive to the Florida College Farmer
board. Others who have picked
their representatives are the Ag
Club and Alpha Tau Alpha, ag edu-
cation society. Requests have been
sent to other clubs to take the
same action.
Elections will be held at the
next meeting, Monday, Feb. 9, and
Seminole pictures will be taken
at this meeting if possible.

Young Demos

Hear Shands

At Luncheon
Gainesville's Candidate
Explains Platform
To Students
The Florida Young Democratic
Club, political organization of the
University of Florida, continued
its series of 1948 political .ban-
quets Wednesday at the White
House Hotel' with a luncheon at
which Senator William A. Shands
of Gainesville, candidate for gov-
ernor, was the principal speaker.
Introduced by Paul Buchman,
president of the Young Democrats,
Senator Shands, a graduate of the
University and of its law school,
devoted the major portion of his
speech to the financial 66ttdltion
of the state of Florida.
Senator Siands emphaLsed his
support of an adequate education-
al program foir the youth of Flor-
ida, and enddrhed the principles
of the recent Compton Educational
Report to President Truman, with
especial reference to its close re-
lation to national security.
The financial condition of our
state muwicipalitie, S en at o r
Shands said, is alarming. Gaines-
ville, Tampa and Miami Beach,
he said, are at the top of the list
of financial responsibility, but all
are in the position of "having a
home and nothing to eat." Sixty-
five per cent of the state lives
within municipalities; 65 per cent
of state revenue comes from this
source, and 90 per cent of the serv-
ices which citizens demand are
furnished by municipalities, the
senator said.
"We cannot afford to have them
collapse," he said. This condition
arises mainly, he stated in reply
to a question, because of the home-
stead exemption laws of Florida.
New homes being built increase
municipal liability, in the way of
many public services, while at the
same time decreasing municipal
income. Yet it is, out of the ques-
tion, he said, to eliminate the
homestead exemption, which is
firmly imbedded in Florida law
and has contributed much to the
advancement of the state.
The state highway system, Sen-
ator Shands said, has increased
beyond all anticipation, but is still
inadequate. Revenue for this de-
partment, he said, isbarely enough
for maintenance. "Not a. man in
this room," he predicted, "will live
to see four-lane highways in this
state unless additional revenue is
provided for the State Road De-
partment." Fourteen million dol-
lars of tag money and six million
from the one-cent tax on gasoline
goes into the general revenue fund.
This means, Senator Shands said,
20 million dollars of new highway
construction which the federal
government would match.
No one man, the senator point-
ed out, can devise a suitable tax
program for Florida. Men and
women from every walk of life
should be called in, and a solution
arrived at which will be least ob-
noxious to all, approached on a
business-like basis. The low in-
come group, he said, must be kept
in mind, recognizing that the
strong must protect the weak and
that the man in the low income
br'c':et, must not be hurt.
Rex Farrior, Jr., of Tampa, was
in charge of arrangements for yes-
terday's Young Democrats' lunch-
eon, receiving able assistance from
Bill Walker, Jacksonville.

a number of them turned down the offers because they
have received better offers from other schools in the
Southeastern Conference. A few of the boys put their
name on the contracts, but even this is not binding as we
know. Hal Griffin, speedy Gator halfback, signed up with
Auburn before he came to Florida. Last year two of the
most publicized football stars in the nation signed Gator
contracts and when Fall drills rolled around they were
not present. One of the two was Eddie Dobrowlski of New
a boy more than Florida? According to the officials here
we give a boy exactly what the Southeastern Conference
permits. Does Georgia, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech, Ala-
bama and other schools in the Conference stick by the
rules. Tom Leib, former Gator head coach, made a killing
in Tampa recently and carried away a number of Tampans
to Alabama. Art Ross, star Orlando gridder, came to
Gainesville and hesitated to sign. He then went to the
Orange Bowl to see Tech play as guest of Coach Bobby
Dodd and company and left after he had signed a Tech
contract. Do they offer money on the side? ? ? ? ? ?

JUST WHAT EFFECT THIS WILL have on this con-

have a lot to do with our reaction to the ruling. If a-school

season. Last Tuesday night they really put on the steam
for a few minutes and ran up a big lead over the depleated
Jax Navy five. This Tampa game is always a rough and
tumble affair and don't be too surprised if the Gators
don't have a tough night with the Spartans. This game is
one that the Cigar City boys point to all season. The Gaa-

Fall Before Gators

By Large Counts

Taenzler Paces Scorers.
In Both Games

By Steve Grimes
Continuing the savage scoring
barrage initiated last Satturday
when they smashed Southern Col-
lege in Lakeland, the Florida Ga-
tors swept to an easy 82-51 win
over the Jacksonville Naval Air
Station five Tuesday night in the
local gym.
The Gators found the Jackson-
ville quintet to be far inferior to
the teams fielded by the Navy
during the "lush war years." The
fast breaking Florida cagers, aid-
ed by an efficient control of the
backboard, built up an early lead
and were never in trouble. Fre-
quent substitutions had little ef-
fect upon Gator scoring as the
second string proved capable of
manufacturing 'baskets of their
High Scorer
Hans Tanzler paced the win-
ners with 18 points. Harry Hamil-
ton and Lamar Bridges hit for 13
and 15 respectively. Bridges also
inadvertently tipped in a basket
for the visitors. Bill Atkinson,
speedy Gator forward who saw
action for the first time since in-
juring his leg against, Auburn,
limped off the court midway in
the first half after dropping in a
crip shot.
Last week the Florida South-
enr Moccasins had .little more suc-
cess than the Navy as they fell
before the Gators by a score of
For a short time Southern,
sparked by Chuck Terry, flashy
Lakeland forward, who scored 18
points before the night was out,
managed to stay abreast of the
higth-flying Gators. However,
with Tanzler hitting from all
angles, Florida began to .pull
away and finally turned the game
into a riot.
Long Halt
Mechanical difficulty with the
game-time clock caused a long
first half and a resulting 49-35
half-time score. The second peri-
od was curtailed in order to com-
pensate for the error. Though
somewhat overshadowed by
Tanzler's 22 points, Hamilton
poured in 13 while Bridges notch-
ed 11. Ten of the 15 Gators who
saw action registered in the scor-

Meet Tampa Five

For Second Time

On Armory Court

Georgia Will Play
Here Next Week

By Bill Boyd
Florida's high powered Gator
cagers will see action in Tampa
for the first time this season when
they engage, the University of
Tampa Spartans on the Tampa
Armory court Saturday night in
the Cigar City. The Gator-Spartan
tilt will be the nightcap of a dou.
ble bill with Southern meeting
MacDill Field in the opening tilt.
This will be the second time
these two teams have met on the
maplewood courts this season. In
the opening game of the season
the Gators grabbed an early lead
and when the final whistle had
blown they held a huge victory.
However, the Tampa quintet was
in poor physical shape and have
improved steadily with each game.
Season Record
The Gators hold a 7-3. record
for the season and a 3-2 record
in the Southeastern Conference
which puts them in fourth place.
The Gators have been showing
improvement with each game. In
their last outing they handed the
Jacksonville Naval Air Station a
sound beating. At the present
time they are riding on a two-
game winning streak. Last Satur-
day night they traveled to Lake-
land and handed the Southern Col-
lege five one of the worst beatings
in the history of the two schools.
After the Tampa tilt the Gators
will return to Gainesville for a
three game stand next week.
Meet Georgia
They will meet Stetson Univer-
sity five on the local court Tues-
day night and then the major se-
ries of the season will open Fri-
day night when the Gators square
off against the unbeaten Univer-
sity of Georgia Bulldogs.

Now that all returns are in on
the statistics of the 1947 football
season, it is little wonder that
Florida's Gators had such an up-
hill battle against the ten-game
schedule from which they emerged
with four wins, five losses and a
Final figures released by the
National Collegiate Athletic Bu-
reau reveal that the Gators went
against national leaders in prac-
tically every department of play.
Some of the Gators' vulner-
ability to enemy passes may be
found in the fact that they bat-
tled America's One-Two aerial
artists, Mississippi's Charley Con-
erly and Georgia's Johnny Rauch.
Conerly gained 1,367 yards pass-
ing during the year, while Rauch
picked up a neat 1,352.
Nation's Top Ends
And the second half of the One-
Two aerial punch also found the
Gators on the defensive end. Mis-
sissippi's Barney Poole ranked first
with 513 yards on 52 receptions,
while Georgia's Dan Edwards stood
second with 540 yards on 38
Florida went against three of
the nation's top twenty-five total
offense leaders: Conerly, the lead-
er; Rauch, the number five man,
and North Carolina's Charlie Jus-
tice, who ranked twenty-third at
season's end.
Punting Stars
The Gators fought the punting
artistry of four of the leading
twelve: "Bootsie" Palmer, N. C.
State's national leader; fifth-place
kicker Charlie Justice; Miami's
Harry Ghaul, eighth ranking punt-
er, and Conerly, the number eleven
man among the booters.
Three Florida opponents were
in the nation's first twelve total
defense teams: Georgia (fifth),
North Carolina State (ninth) and
North Carolina (twelfth). North
Carolina State had the nation's
finest pass defense record and
Georgia took ninth place.

The Executive Council

Has The Next Move

Universities and Colleges throughout
the nation are voting whether to affiliate
with the National Student Association, an
attempt at nation-wide student govern-
The ratification of the NSA constitu-
tion by the various student governments
constitutes membership in the organiza-
tion. As yet, Florida has taken no action
on this proposal.
It seems that the Executive Council
would take the matter under considera-
tion, as did the majority of other schools
throughout the country. Sources have
pointed out that the Executive Council
has not had a quorum at the latter parts
of their meetings since the week before
the Thanksgiving vacations-approxi-
mately seven weeks ago.
The Council dispenses with routine
business with a quorum and then mem-
bers begin a wholesale exodus, leaving
matters, such as the NSA, in cold.
The question of affiliation with NSA
is important. The University of Missis-
sippi has disapproved affiliation with the
NSA, giving the Executive Council or-
ganization's aim of racial non-segregation
as its primary reason. Other Universities,
such as Michigan, Wisconsin, UCLA, and
Standford, have affiliated.
What will the University of Florida
do? It seems that the Executive Council
should take action one way or the other.

Students And Construction

The University of Florida campus is

more a part of this educational institu-

schools in the nation.
"Thy lovely vine-clad halls .
And surrounded by lovely grounds. The
appearance of this campus should mnain-
tain its college "lovliness" or it .will not
continue to rise in beauty with its build-
ing and academic programs.
It takes the State and the Administra-
tion to provide for the building and cad-
emic program, but it takes us all to pro-
vide beauty for this campus. It is primari-
ly the student's task while he is- on this
campus, and the administration stands
by ready to help.
Thus, the reason for launching off on
the Rehabilitation and Improvement pro-
gram as announced on page one of to-
day's issue. This is your program and it
deserves your backing. But we can stand
here all days and state that over and over
again, but unless you realize the points
to the following stories, we can never
hope to raise the beauty along with the
building program.
The appearance of the campus has

oeen kept pretty chopped up for many
months by new construction and utility
installations, but to make things worse,
uncooperative students have done their
part to see that an already dim situation
was made worse.
This week, several sportsmen on camp-
us decided to brighten things up a bit by
burning four palm trees in the dormitory
area. The next morning, the trees and
nothing around them looked bright at all.
Students cutting the Plaza corners
hasn't helped the grass; the use of man-
sized nails to tack up political campaign
leaflets killed trees, and some artistic
geniuses decided on a more permanent
method of painting their political mes-
sage on the side of the library annex.'
There' is a distinct difference between
the construction work and the work done
by students. The construction has as, its
ultimate motive the improvement of this
The first efforts in this improvement
program are well underway as described
in this week's news. It's a big program
that will take months to complete but its
success will depend solely on the coopera-
tion of the students.
If we want a great University, we will
have it. but we must show we want
it. Join in the program today.

Great For Such

A Great Cause

Not many Universities and colleges in
the nation .can boast of such a neatly-
operated recreational program which our
own Florida Union conducts.
And only a few can speak about a
complete recreational part with a lake,
boat houses, swimming lockers and picnic
Yet the University of Florida's Camp
Wauburg, operated by the Florida Union,
is for the sole use of University personnel
and is one of the biggest asset to the stu-
dent program.
The Alligator takes this opportunity to
commend the Florida Union Board of
Managers on the improved facilities at
Wauburg in the past 12 months, and al-
so agree with their proposal as stated in
a page one, article that the maintenance
of the camp must continue with the stand-
ards such a camp should maintain.
Since the camp first began, it has been
operated on funds from student fees, plus
a small appropriation from the state.
With nearly 45 per ,.cent of the entire
usage of the camp made by members of
the faculty and administrative staff, it is
entirely proper that they should have
their part in keeping Wauburg a place
for the University to put high on its rec-
ord. The small membership fee of one
dollar is not much, and we feel that co-
operation to this plan should be "great
for such a great cause."

As I See 'Em

Congrats to Marty Lubov on a
swell colyum last week. However,
someone has been giving him the
wrong information. I was not
bludgeoned to death with my type-
writer. It was a blackjack. And
it wasn't me. It was Morton C.
Freedman. Inside dope has it that
Freedman was silenced by mem-
bers of the "Jack Doherty For
President Club." Ah me, politics. :
For the first time in the history
of the Alligator, more desks,
chairs, typewriters, paper, stools,
pigeons, and what have you have
put in an appearance.
Pen has set up the office so that
now it looks like a newspaper of-
fice. The only thing that would
really make it a newspaper office
now is some newspaper men.
The desks are given to members
of the staff in order of their im-
portance. Pen's desk is across the
end of the room. So is T. S.'s, the
managing editor. Then comes some
of the better writers and staff re-
porters' desks. Marty Lubov has
the desk that's stuck off in the
smallest corner of the room. My
desk is under his. Harold Herman's
desk is in the first sewer as you
leave Florida Union. Poor Morty
Freedman ain't even got one. Mor-
ty 'said he didn't want one any-
how. He's mad, I think.
Bill Boyd, congealed sports edi-
tor, has his desk under the first

Florida football player on the left
side of the line.
You know, I don't think many
people know just what a fine
sports editor we 'have on this pa-
per. Have you ever seen a better
coverage of sports news? Have
you ever seen any better written
headlines? You have? So have I.
But not often.
But Bill works hard. He told me
so. You know, it's interesting to
know how Bill got started in
sports. In his high school days
he was mascot for the senior girls'
chess association. Not being con-
tented with bored. games, Bill
vowed that he would become ener-
getic in the field of sports. So,
when the GI Bill of Rights came
into being, Bill was the first male
to enter Vassar..
He kept his vow. He played sec-
ond string end on the girls' foot-
ball team.
When Bill transferred to the
University of Florida, he decided
to be a sports writer. When all
the sports writers gathered at a
meeting to talk to Coach Wolf, the
coach smiled and greeted the men
one by one by saying, "Hello, writ-
er." When he met Bill he said,
Bill soon became sports editor
of the Florida Alligator. Of course,

the Alligator at that time. became

Ordinary Times ByH. G. (Buddy) Davis

"Other people can't make you
see with their eyes. At best they
can only encourage you to use
your own. ." Aldous Huxley.
It would be an unwholesome
move to increase the subsistence
allowance granted veterans under
the G. I. Bill of Rights. The ill ef-
fects would be imperceptible at
first-a slow and creeping par-
alysis that in later years would es-
tablish our generation as a sag-
ging dip on the scale of human
It is not the purpose of this
column to discuss the increased
cost-of-living, or even to emphas-
ize that the Bill was never intend-
ed to cover the complete cost of
education. But herein is a discus-
sion of frontiers and government
and the desire to do.
America had a frontier. It ex-
tended north to south and behind
it was the biggest question mark
man had seen since he wondering-
ly gazed westward across the
great Atlantic. And our early
Americans took ax and plow and
horse and rifle, and moved the
frontier westward-always west-
ward. And the frontier spirit in-
vaded our entire culture and
changed us from silk-stockinged
gentlemen into roughcut gems who
dared stare all men in the eye. The
white men who first encountered
the American wilderness were
Europeans; after they had con-
quered it, they were Americans.
And after the great land frontier
was no longer a vital force, Amer-
ica turned to new frontiers. Before
the people lay exploitation of
great land resources, victory in the
diplomatic field, success in the bus-
iness world. There were factories
to build, music to compose, philo-

sophical thought to develop, medi-
cine to improve. The fronteir had
changed from one of the land to
that of the mind. And in one sense
of the word, it was a capitalistic
form of survival of the fittest.
Until our time, the spirit of the
mental frontier flourished.
Now we have just completed a
war. And war is the expenditure
of money-money belonging to a
neuter called government. Also
war is planned by a small hier-
archy and completed by obedience
of the masses. Missing from the
performance of war is initative-
the willingness to gamble with
one's own resources. True, war
often brings out the best in the
character of men, but it is the best
in a heroic sense-it is a sacrifice
on the alter of nationalism.
War lacks the mental frontier
that is typical of American pro-
gress. Millions of Americans have
spent millions of aggregate years
in the performance of this war,
and each month the Treasury De-
partment held forth its offerings
in worldly goods. The American
soldier, in one sense of the word,
was secure.
Under the G. I. Bell, this offer-
ing has continued for many of us.
And when we compile our personal
statistics, we find that from one
fifth to one fourth of our lives has
been under government subsidy.
The frontier that faces our older
Americans is still a vague un-
reality to us.
And if our complete educational
needs are filled, the mental fron-
tier will not exist for us-the fu-
ture leaders-until it hits with an
overwhelming impact. Our char-
acter will be weak, and our nation
will .suffer.
Now, turning to another phase

of the discussion, we find that gov-
ernment has constantly been con-
sidered by men of liberty as a
necessary evil. Our forefathers
utilized the system of checks and
balances-a system that through
150 years has tempered mass rule
with the knowledge of authorities,
and the centralization of authority
has been controlled by the will of
an informed people. But undeni-

Library Fault Revealed

Dear Sir:
A serious crisis faces the U. of F. Will the Board of Control appro-
priate enough money to replace the sorry pencil sharpeners now found
in the library?
Inside sources have revealed that the reason the sharpeners won't
be replaced is because a member of the Board of Control,is an auto-
matic pencil king, and the replacement of pencil sharpeners in the li-
brary would ruin his business.
A contest is hereby started by the writer, which will be an essay
to be written on the following subject: Why the Library Should Have
Sharpeners That Sharpen. 1st prize would be: 1 used Hoover Button;
second prize: I used Latin Pony.
Simply enclose the essay, limit to 1 ream, with the "head" of the
respective Dean of your college.
The power of the press shall again be the knight on a white

Do we' have a symphony or-
chestra on the campus?
Perhaps so rehearsals are
scheduled every Monday we
must have one. There is one on
paper its charter says it is to
provide a program of cultural
and entertaining music.
Now, as to where that music is,
your guess is as good as mine.
One thing sure, ordinary Univer-
sity students haven't heard much
of it. Last year, just at the end of
the second semester the group got
together and ground out a concert
-a kind of formal gesture in the
direction of the student body.
Why the organization exists
should be plain enough. Music is
a fine thing for a University cam-
pus. Just practically speaking, an
orchestra is a requisite part of
traditional student body activi-
ties like the Glee Club, the Band,
the Florida Players, etc. it.
helps the University's reputation.
A non-performing group such as
the one we have now can do little
to fulfill any function.
Of course, the group is having
its troubles. Support of the or-
ganization, which was once en-
thusiastic, is at a low point. This
might have something to do with

aftermaths of the Nar, and, too,
it might have something to do
with the fact that the symphony
is not at all well known to the
student body. This in turn might
be due to the notable lack of per-
formances by group.
One of the main reasons the or-
chestra does not perform is prob-
ably its inadequacy. It would
seem for the time being, that a
full symphony is too much for the
University to maintain. Well -
have the big regulators thought
of scaling the group down. Per-
haps even this would be impos-
sible, but it does seem that there
ought to be enough capable play-
ers in the present symphony to
make up a competent chamber
There is a great chamber music
literature, which may be rather
unfamiliar, but which contains
some of the greatest music of
some of the greatest composers.
One thing is almost sure, an au-
dience would appreciate this great
music performed in a reasonable
manner, far more than the rather
mediocre symphonic selections we
heard performed last year. It's
just a thought, but it could bear
looking into.

main difficulty this semester has
been homework. If it weren't for
attending daily classes and being
held responsible for classroom as-
signments, I could really enjoy
school I attended the special
convocation for Klein H. Graham.
It was obvious that the student
body merrily disappears whenever
it has the opportunity; be the oc-
casion a memorial service, a pep
rally, a debate program, or a con-
vocation. Graham put the other
speakers to shame with his warm,
human reply of appreciation. Not-
ably absent from the platform was

work. Today I met Mr. and
Mrs. Barooah, a Hindu couple, who
have been studying in California.
They expect to be back in India by
March. Mrs. Barooah said that
Indian students have been reluct-
ant to attend schools in the South
because of the known color dis-
crimination. This has not been a
problem in Florida but both Hindu
and Mohammedan students in Ten-

nessee have worn turbans to avoid
explanation of their color. Mr.
Barooah told me that there is an
Indian student on this campus. I
would like to meet you.
