OUT OF THE MAZE '
Now Finished Product
Cost Of Unique Laboratory Near $85,000;
Offers Opportunities For Research
Out of the intricate maze of con-
struction now proceeding on the
campus, a finished product has em-
erged. The product is the new pro-
cessing laboratory for the agricul-
ture department's huge expansion
Through the leadership of Dr.
H. H. Hume, dean of the Ag
School, the processing laboratory
was completed and will offer the
students an opportunity to study
the various phases employed in
dehydration, deep-freezing, and
canning food. The course, which
entails no prerequisites or labora-
tory fees, involves two semesters
work with a total of three credits
for each semester. However, pres-
ent facilities limit the enrollment
to 24 students, but it is hoped
that future accommodations will
be made for a larger class.
This unique laboratory with
equipment cost an approximate
eighty five thousand dollars.
The concrete block structure in-
cludes such modern conveniences
as flourescent lighting equip-
ment, tile flors, and an Individ-
ual heaetng plant. The equip-
l ment consists of stainless steel
surfaced tables, pressure cook-
ers, retorts, can sealers, double
ovens, freezing units, scales,
and automatic machinery to
grade and out vegetables. The la-
boratory will be run on a plan
of connection from beginning to
In connection with the Agri-
cultural experimental station, re-
search is, in progress to discover
what type of irrigation is con-
ductive for better vegetables.
Stetson Glee Club

The John B. Stetson Glee CluO
under the direction of Professor
Harold M. Griffin will present a

The present construction that
is taking place In the additions
to the Infirnmry is a natural
handicap in schedule and per-
formance, but sincere effort are
being and will continue to be
made in keeping up the standard
of service to the students by the
Infirmary officials, said Stanley.
Foster added that students en-
tering the Infirmary for attention
after the clinic hours will not find
a regular clinic nurse on duty at
the time, but the nurse, on the
floors will handle them as expedi-
ently as possible.
He further stated that students
coming into the Infirmary at eight
or nine in the morning complain
abput having to wait for the doc-
tor, but the doctor's clinic hours
begin at 10 because of the fact he
has to make his round of the bed
patients in the morning. This na-
turally takes time, and it is a
situation that will be eliminated
with the new reorganizational set-
up. However, any acute case will
positively receive prompt atten-

The structure costing over a
million dollars, will be built on

Entrance to the auditorium will
be through the new building. r
All administrative offices will
be housed in th building, and
there will be available classroom
and office facilities. The presi-

of Control room.

Girls May Use Own Discretion
About Sitting In Parked Cars
By Cheryl Muster
The campus is back to normal.
Holidays are forgotten as stu-
dents trudge in the rain to class-
es. Conversati .s turn from va-
cation fun to "that old term paper
I have to write" and "two spades,"
"no trump," "pass."
Men Take Credit
The men take all the credit for
the new liberal movement on the
FSU campus as more rule changes
are made. Recently announced
In assembly were that upperclass
women students may be out of
their rooms within their dormito-
ries after last light flash and that
all women students may use their
own discretion about sitting in
parked cars. These and several
other rules have been submitted
to trail and will be put on the rec-
ord if the student body shows that
it can cope with the situations.

'Grand Old Men'
There will be a new club formed
on the University of Florida cam-
pus at the start of the second se-
mester, pursuant to the acquisition
of a charter from the Dean of Stu-
\ Thle club will be known as the
"Grand Old Men" and will be re-
stricted to male students who reg-
istered at the University of Flor-
ida between September, 1939, and
Purpose of the club, said Buck
Lanier, publicity agent, will be to
"stamp out the Communistic influ-
ences on the Florida campus" and
endeavor to "once again put Flor-
ida traditions, ideals and view-
points" in front of the student
"Since these men were the last
to have a real conceptual analysis
of what denotes the real Florida
spirit," said Lanier, "club organ-
izers feel that they can do a real
service to the University."
One issue that will be promul-
gated by the "Men" is to findout
exactly what the Progressive
League is standing for on the
campus, Lanier declared.

dents informally about their
work, as well as about her attti-
tudes on painting, stating that
she felt that if people viewing
modern abstract art would learn
to "relax" they would not find
that type of painting difficult to
understand. She also ga e, brief
criticisms to several of the stu-
dents who requested them, and
commended the manner in which
the drawing and painting classes
are organized at the school.

American Students May
Study In Cuernavaca
Spanish Courses Offered Under Sponsorship
Of American-Mexican Universities
By Jack Bryan
An excellent opportunity to
study in a foreign land has just
been made available to American
students, with the announcement
of the "College Year in Mexico,"
a plan whereby qualified persons
enrolled in any American college
or university may spend from
four to nine months pursuing
their education in Mexico, with
full academic credit assured.
Under distinguished American-
Mexican i sponsorship, the new
"venture features an interesting
course of study in the beautiful
Mexican city of Cuernavaca, lo-
cated 45 miles from Mexico City.
The curriculum offers courses in
Spanish language, literature, his-
tory, economics, political science,
archaeology, and the fine arts,
and the project has been -approv-
ed by the Veterans' Administra-
tion, which means that ex-ser-
vicemen or women enrolled are
entitled to full educational bene-
fits under the GI Bill of Rights.
No Time Change
Due to the different academic
calendar followed by Mexican uni-
versities, the "College Year in
Mexico" will not be offered at
any regular Mexican institution.
Instead, an entirely new school
has been organized especially for
this undertaking, and the calen-
dar will conform to that of
American colleges. In this way,
a United States student may
spend one or two semesters study-
ing in Mexico without disrupting
his educational timetable.
A luxurious new hotel, the
Hernan Cortes, has been obtain-.
ed for the enterprise, and class-
room facilities and living ac-
commodations will be on a par
with those of the best American
educational institutions. The
city of Cuernavaca itself is' fa-1
inous for its pleasant climate
and its historic and picturesque
atmosphere, combined with the
most modern of transportation
and communication facilities.
The "College Year in Mexico"
is not a college or university in
its own right, and grants no de-
grees and issues no credits in its
own right. The whole question of
accreditation is settled by the fact
that the transcript of grades and
credits for the work done will be
issued by the National University
of Mexico, on its regular forms.
This venerable university is the
oldest institution of higher learn-
ing in the western hemisphere.
John Martin, director of the In-
stitute of Inter-American Affairs,
and Dr. Brent D. Allinson, of the
department of history and politi-
cal science have been asked to
represent the "College Year in
Mexico" on the local campus, and
have been supplied with illustra-
tive literature and full informa-
tion about the project.
The spring semester of the
"College Year in Mexico" opens
Feb. 7, and concludes June 4, with
one week of vacation for Easter.
The summer term runs from June
14 to September 10. Any Florida
students interested are urged to
contact either Martin or Dr. Al-
linson for details.

Florida's. fourth place SEC

freshmen, boasts a record in sea-

of eight wins and three defeats.

Hans Taenzler, 6'4" Gator cen-
ter will again be expected to be
:the biggest -hope for Gator victpr-
ies. The huge pivot man is the
leading point maker for the team
and has accumulated more than
150 points in the eleven games
played to date. He hit the hoop
for 22 points against Southern in
the Gator's 74-49 win recently for
his best performance.
Bill Atkinson, Gator forward,
has returned to action to bolster
Gator hopes of victory over their
traditional rivals from Georgia.
Atkinson'was injured in the first
Auburn game and was sidelined
until the game against Jax Naval
Air Station. Lamar Bridges, Har-
ry Hamilton, Julian Miller and
Harold Haskins are other Gator
high scoring men and will be out
to raise the league standing of
Florida while boosting their indi-
vidual scoring totals.
A win over Georgia will drop
the Bulldogs lower in league
standings and hoist the Gator
team nearer the rarified atmos-
phere at the top. Georgia clashed

As Kant Once Remarked-
'Dunces Are Beyond Help'
Studying late, worrying, complaining,
huh ? Exams are right here, aren't they ?
It's tough telling a student with those
monsters on his mind that 'it's a natural
thing, that almost everyone feels the
same, but it's true.
The man or woman is rare who doesn't
have the thought hanging heavy despite
the amount of study he or she puts in. In-
structors, however, say that this fear of
tests and quizzes is merely failure either
to study or failure to know how to study
for them. Granting that this is so, all we
can do is to forego at least 75 percent of
our recreation and study intensely for
these remaining five days before the be-
ginning of the finals. For that remaining
25 percent of recreation it would be well
to space it out and go into classrooms
with as rested a mind as it is possible to
have during this time. But use these five
days to every advantage and make those
grades-much in your future may depend
This advice is intended mostly for those
who are of middle ability. As Immanuel
Kant, the great philosopher, said, "The
dunces are beyond all help and the gen-
iuses will help themselves."
Student 'Snickers' Are
Hushed By Leg Braces
With a short dress and black shoes, de-
signed to show how cute she is, little Mar-

gazes straight out at the audience with
her wide eyes and begins talking about
the March of Dimes, the importance of it.
.Understandably, some calloused students
who aren't, impressed by "cute kids,"
snicker. Very 'few, however, snicker at
the poster picture of the child wearing
braces and a pleading look. No one can
laugh at the thought of the disease which
hits all ages, especially the young.
The March of Dimes is on and we
Florida students are being asked to con-
tribute generously. We have to. Average
cost for treatment of one infantile par-
aylgsi ease is $2,000. We may not raise
enough money for even one case here but
our money combined with that of the rest

as the one which struck Wilmington, Del-

There is no longer public panic in the

has arisen and it is backed by the dimes
University Is Grateful
For Efforts Of Dr. Rose
"It has been very confining," were a
few of the words Dr. Embree R. Rose,
head of the university's infirmary staff
medical staff, stated this week as he pre-
pares to depart from here after several
strenuous years of pulling this infirmary
up to one of the best in the South.
"Confining" is only a nice word to use
for all the pressure, long, dreary hours,
with almost a thankless job of placing the
infirmary on solid ground. And he has
done it despite many obstacles that stu-
dents have placed in his way.
In February, two years ago, he was the
only doctor here and his staff was less
than half its present size. Taking all this
in stride, he has gradually lifted the in-
firmary up, and in the next year, it will
be one of the best in the nation.
We are indeed grateful to Dr. Rose for
his constant work here, and extend good
wishes for his health and position in
Worthy Student Program
A great program got underway here
It's great because it effects every stu-
dent, faculty member, and employee
here. It's great because it keeps this
campus looking like a campus.
We do not want, however, to keep say-
ing that this rehabilitation and improve-
ment program is a great campaign and
write thousands of word& on the program.
We want to urge that organizations such
as Alpha Phi Omega, Blue Key, and any
other organizations that can join in to
make this program truly great.
This is a student program and should
be- carried out by as many as possible.
With This Edition Alligator
Ends Semester Publication
With this issue, the Florida ALLI-
GATOR closes its publication for the first
semester. We have attempted to present
a student paper throughout the first 15
editions, and we have gradually built up
our equipment and staff to place where
we can actually announce big changes for
We feel that from our successes and
failures of this past semester, we can pre-
sent to you the remainder of the year a
more informative, entertaining and newsy
paper. We need your cooperation and we
again issue a call for anyone interested
in journalism on the campus to join our
staff for next semester.
Minimize All The Noise
Examinations are almost here and the
noise about the campus has already ar-
rived. Apparently, this period of intense
study means nothing in particular to the
chronic noisemakers. Some quiet now
will do much for many who are trying
to get educational return for the money
they spend here.
In the library, especially, is there too
much confusion. Of the two floors the
lower one is the noiser. Social talk seems
to be more prevalent there. A smoke in
the lobby of the library may be a good
idea but conversation should be kept ex-
tremely low since tones are amplified
many times by the chamber-like struc-
Bull sessions, radio playing, shouting
and whistling are all things to be kept
at a minimum to give everyone the fullest
chance to make the grades he desires.

Ordinary Times By H. G. (Buddy) Davis
Flo is glad, I imagine, that you
had that forced landing in the
Pennsyvania hills, since it was a
good excuse for taking you out
of the sky. Hope you weren't in-
jured-you didn't say.
But you've had close moments
before. I' recall when we lost an
engine on the Toyama raid, and
the time the throttle cable broke
on the landing round-off at Sai-
pan, Personally, my worse moment
came when I stepped into that
dark bomb-bay Ichinomiya and
saw those fouled-up bomb racks
and the four 500 pounders hung
up with their fuse props spinning
in the slipstream.
There's an old saying about
the Lord looking out for drunks
and fools, and since all mankind
is foolish for fighting wars any-
way, I guess we were pretty well
Yes, I remember how Nagasaki
looked. But why worry about the
end of the world anytime soon?
As one professor down here says,
we can't even kill all the weeds,
so we would have a helleva time
killing all mankind. An Army Col-
onel diagnoses the world's ills as
inflation of .the ego and malnu-
trition of the mind. We are an ego-
tistical bunch and are inclined to
think the world will collapse when
our little clique is gone. But the
olf earth and the erratic civiliza-
tion it contains keeps rolling
along. With that optimistic con-
clusion, the' insect world won't
be the winner of the next war.
Thornton, our old faithful waist
gunner, could be wrong about
having a show-down with Russia
right now. It's estimated that the
war cost us $330 billion total, or
$250 million a day. The European
aid plan will cost around 16 mil-
lion dollars. That represents only
60 days' cost of a fighting war.
Surely we can put in an ounce
of prevention against Communism
and gamble on getting a pound of
cure. It's really a penny-ante
game, and it may sve us the trou-
ble of crawling into another one
of Boeing's Boners.
The secret of that, however, is
keeping a wary eye on Russia and
as Teddy Roosevelt said,' "Carry
a big stick."
You live in New York City, so
you've seen some of the Lake suc-
cess bickering at first hand. We
expected great things when we
left the Islands-the UNO was
supposed to settle our wars for-
ever. As you say, right now it
seems that the UNO has been
"emasculated." But I don't see how
we expect to get something out
of nothing. The entire UNO year-
ly budget is less than your New
York City spends a year just to
keep its streets clean. That's a
pretty low price and I don't think
it's even enough for a down pay-
ment on a lasting peace.
But money alone won't make a
success of UNO. Don't forget that
we have three forces to conquer
to set up a world government-
the sovereignty of governments,
the nationalism of the peoples, and
the economics of the world.
Don't think that is an abstract
theory for the political scientist
to write about. It involves both
of us. It's simple to see that we
can't have a strong administrator
of peace unless it is economically
sound. And this administrator isn't
possible without exercising a cer-
tain amount of sovereignty over
its subjects. These two things can
only be brought about by one force
-world nationalism by a majority
of the earth's peoples.
Nationalism has been a great
thing. It took a bunch of long-
haired unshaven savages and
taught them how to make steel
and railroad engines and razors.
But when the spirit goes so far
that the boys are willing to an-
nihilate one another, it's time
they looked beyond their nation to-
ward something bigger. That big-
ger thing is some sort of world
The quotation, "My country -
right or wrong," is outmoded. And
I'm talking about all nations-
not just ours.
You know, Sid, the philosophers
argue over the question, "Is man
good or evil?" But there is only
one practical answer, and on that
answer this letter is based.
We must consider mankind as
divided into three groups-an evil
minority on the bottom, a great
and good minority on the top,
and a huge apathetic and listless
mass in-between. Somehow, the
good minority must persuade the
listless mass to take faith in hand
and furnish the backing neces-
sary for the peace we used to
And if that good minority fails,
another war is on the agenda. Per-
haps when that war is over, the
remainder of the mass will come
to their senses.
Watch the top minority, Sid:
If its efforts are futile, I'll see
you over Moscow. And I'm like
you, Sid-I feel as though my luck
has run out.
That's why I'm worried.

Should Revise Staff, He Suggests
On reading the column "Bull Session" written in last week's
'Alligator, I was more than inclined to believe that instead of the li-
brary administration being revamped you might do well to do a little
revamping on that Gator Staff of yours.
Evidentally our exaggerat:ng columnist just doesn't know the
facts when he feels that he can make such rash statements.
The University library in the past year by the much competent
administration has revised and completely shifted the periodicals and
documents departments from second to first floor. By doing so the
efficiency of these departments has increased far beyond that which
they have ever been in the past.
Since the beginning of the semester the administration has set up
the completely new Biology Library in the new temporary building.
Also, might be added, the change and revision of the Architec-
ture Library to cope with the ever increasing enrollment in that
college, the setting up of tle new Engineering Alcove in he main li-
In regards to the misplaced book so fervently complained of, I
dare say that when several hundred books are handled daily it is not
without season that one "little ole book" might easily be temporarily
misplaced among that whole 300,000.
As for having to act ,[..]-l:,.,-i.- for interrupting a student assist-
ant while he reads, I really do believe this was stretching the point.
Full realizing that this was merely a bull session and as in all
bull sessions there is made many faulty and partly untrue statements
I feel that the writer was to an extent justified in producing this
article but, let's hope in he future that he is not too much inclined
to present only the critical side of the subject.

RevieS And Stuff By Gerald Clarke
Quite a few reviews and a lot
of stuff have come through this
typewriter since last September..
Since there may be some doubt
as to what it all has meant, it
might not hurt to review "Revie'.
and Stuff," as much as is p.ossi.-rle
in this rather limited space,
Originally this piece was call-
ed "Turntable Talk." To the ob-
servent this signified that it was
going to deal with something
which goes on turntables and pre-
sumably it could have included
chatter about the locomotives on
the roundhouse turntable, or about
the furniture in Cox's revolving
window display, but it was mer-
cifully restricted to recordings.
Some weeks G'ville saw, huge'
numbers of new records and some
weeks saw few. Column writing
was easy in the fat weeks, but
oh, those lean ones. So, to piece
out the column new departments
were added-first, chatter con-
cerning people in the music field,
then people in radio and the mo-
vies. Gradually the chatter crowd-
ed out the record reviews. About
that time the writer began to
feel very conscious that the title
of the column meant nothing, in
fact, so did the column. So with
the advent to the new semester
things were changed-at least the
title. "Reviews and Stuff" came
Amazingly enough the first
thing the new column did was to
cut down the chatter and go back
to reviewing records, something
which turned out to be completely
unsatisfying in Gainesville, where
the supply of new discs in reg-
ulated not so much by demand as
by the capricious whims of the
Jacksonville distributors. Soon an-
other shift was made-back to ab-
solute trivia, back to gossipy tid-
bits about the entertainment
world.-Variety and Billboard were
wonderful sources and there was
a lot of stuff passed on which
didn't break into the ordinary
press. But-reporting gossip was
An ideal came-why not let the
space serve a constructive pur-
pose. All the columnist had to
do was to dig up some construc-
tive purposes. First, the wish was
expressed that the movie "Henry
V" might be shown here. The sub-
ject was dealt with repeatedly and
many visits to the local theatres
were made but no action took
place. Next, it seemed that Lyceum
Council presentations were of in-
adequate quality and a few hints
to that effect were sprinkled
hither and you and you through
the column, as far as hither and
yon go in eight or 10 column
inches. The Council wisely ignored
the mild barbs and although little
the mild barbs and although lit-
.tle response was expected, the col-
umnist was completely frustrated
by no response whatsoever.
Petrillo, an off campus person-
ality, was a safe bet as a column
subject, so he was denounced in
a manner calculated to appear im-
partial. This was good to fill the
space for a while and it was also
very easy to write. By the way,
there is still a lot of anti-Petrillo
material in my desk which can be
pulled out when I am at a loss for
another column subject.
The rather constructive, I think,
suggestion that movie facilities be
provided on the campus was put
forth and that the University Sym-
phony be trimmed down to man-
ageable size. These notions each
provided a subject for a column
and response has been gratifying.
At least there has been reaction,
which proves the existence of some
readers. Nothing spectacular has
happened in "Review and Stuff"
during the semester but it's been

POLITICAL STEW: The newly-
formed Progressive League, if
nothing else, will add a new slant
on political thought here and will
at least show that there actually
is no ban against freedom of
speech in this country-yet .
Dan McCarty, who recently aided
in starting a club here boosting
him for governor, has pretty solid
support from at least one group
on campus-the lads who work
at Florida Union seem to be for
Dan all the way. On the other
hand, the College of Law, where
politics always seems to reach its
zenith locally, appears to be just
as solidly behind Fuller Warren-
incidentally, Fuller's brother, Ju-
lian, is laying the groundwork for
