Traditions And Customs

Make A Great GatorwLand
Dear Freshmen:
Now that you have registered, stood in line for text books, and at-
tended your first classes, it's time somebody took you aside and check-
ed you out on a few of Florida's best traditions. So here goes.
The most important and well-observed tradition on the campus is
the Honor System. By now you have probably heard some wise guy
moaning about how the honor system -is all shot but that's not true.
All good Florida men and women do just what the signs in the class-
rooms say. They "uphold Florida's most cherished tradition." In or-
der to keep this tradition going, it's up to you to maintain standards
of honor in line with the meaning of the honor system.
If you've noticed students speaking to you on the campus you
never saw before in your life, don't waste your time trying to think
of their names because he probably never saw you before either.
He's carrying on another old Florida custom, the "hello" tradition.
Whenever a Florida student passes another on the campus, they al-
ways say howdy. This custom has made our campus one of the
friendliest in the United States.
Freshmen have some other good traditions to carry out. In addi-
tion to being able to name deans of all the colleges, athletic coaches
and team captains, and student body officers, each student should
know the location of every building on the campus. These rules for
freshmen are not to make them feel like the underdog, but to be sure
that each Florida student knows something about the school and is
aware of the traditions.
Here would be a good place to mention Gator Gulch and some
of the other scenic wonders of the campus. No freshmen will be
permitted to move into any of the excavations without checking at
the housing office first and paying his rent in advance. These choice
locations are not reserved and are rented out on a first-come, first-
serve basis.
Please do not run down people standing in the halls with a steady
stare on their face. These students are not any more unconscious than
usual-they are reading the Orange and Blue Bulletin. This valuable
sheet comes out three times a week and is posted on bulletin boards
throughout the school. Be sure to read it; all important announce-
ments are in the Orange and Blue Bulletin.
If you have a free evening with nothing better to do, you might
drop around one of the larger fraternities which is graced with a
stone lion in the front yard. If this lion sports a coat of many col-
ors, go on your way rejoicing. But if the beast is gleaming white
and you just happen to have a can of paint in your pocket, you might
go up to the lion and decorate It just a little. Sometimes little men
come running out of the fraternity armed with blow torches and wa-
ter pistols, but you can ignore them. They think t's great sport.
Well, thos're only a few of the traditions honored on this campus.
Try to observe them-you'll get a lot more out of your college days if
you do.

Statue Of Dr. Murphree

Now Target For Pranks

By Sandy Geer
According to the inscription on the base of A. A. Mur-
phree's statue, between Peabody Hall and the library, this
monument was erected by the people of Florida. Who-
ever wrote those few lines forgot to add that it is also dec-
orated from time to time by those same people.

The whole business started
back in October, 1946, when the
statue was unveiled at that
year's Homecoming. That very
night two stealty figures crept
close to the imposing memorial.
Could they do It? Could they
add a little humor and sparkle to
the silent old gentleman's like-
ness? No. A large floodlight
and an alert watchman foiled
the plans.
Night after night mysterious
figures "cased" the job without
success. Finally the great mo-
ment arrived: no spot light and
not a sign of a watchman. Taking
advantage of perfect conditions,
two shadowy forms climbed the
statue with equipment in hand.
Did The Town
Next morning early risers saw
A. A. Murphree, ex-president of
the University, brandishing an
empty bottle of spirits frumenti.
Obviously the gay old blade had'
been out on the town that night
because his eyes were bloodshot
and even his nose gleamed red in
the early sunlight.
Since this pioneer achievement
in mutilating Murphree, others
have been quick to see the mna
velous opportunities of this pwe-
ticular statue and it has run the
famous Ninth Street Lion a close

The show with simple footnotes
interpreting the artists' meaning
and influence has been arranged
by the Modern Museum of New
York in an effort to answer the
controversial question, "What is

Paintings included represent
the works of painters of the sub-
conscious, painters of mood and
artists who express through their
work their feelings on moral and
social issues.

Tryouts Tonight
Final tryouts for "Joan of Lor-

Doesn't Blush
On various occasions the usually
staid ex-president has flaunted
miscellaneous pieces of pink linge-
rie in the morning breezes. This
would be enough to make some
men blush but Murphree maintains
his same bronze completion.
Throughout its brief experi-
ence, the statue has been the
resting place of many other odd
articles. That enticing right
forefinger has played host to ev-
erything fiom band-aids to yo-
yo's. Sometimes chalk artists
have worked wonders at making
the figure cross-eyed. Some have
even gone so far as to place beer
bottles in Murphree's outstretch-
hand, but these people obviously
don't appreciate his taste for fine
things. After all, he can't be a

But the rumor that special de-

the statue in normal condition is
not true. Actually they only spend
a few hours at ft achss day,
Obviously the field is wide opan.

of Dr. Murphree's broad lap and

Vice President

Allen Writes To

Student Body

Temporary Provisions Are
The Best He Has
Yet Seen

After two weeks of service
here, Dr. John S. Allen, newly-
appointed vice president of the
University of Florida, has had
time to observe some of the work-
ings of the University and sends
this message to the student body:
To the Students of the University
of Florida:
During the two weeks that Mrs.
Allen and I have been on your
campus, a very warm welcome
has been extended to us by mem-
bers of the administration and
faculty and by leaders of several
student organizations. In this
short time I have had a chance
to become acquainted with only
a small part of the University of
Florida, but I have already been
impressed by the achievements of
the administration and faculty in
providing educational opportuni-
ties of high quality for so many
students. I have been active in
another state in providing addi-
tional facilities to accommodate
the tidal wave of veterans who
have returned to college, and I
can assure you that the tempor-
ary provisions made at the Uni-
versity of Florida for additional
housing, faculty and instructional
space are as impressive as I have
seen. /
The University of Florida is
undoubtedly destined to continue
as a large university. I hope that
this will not result in sacrificing
the many advantages which small
colleges have. When the Univer-
sity was smaller, I am sure there
were many more opportunities for
close personal contact between
students and the great teachers,
scholars and personalities of the
faculty and administration. In
these hurried and almost hectic
times, with large classes, crowded
quarters and accelerated pro-
grams, we are in danger of los-
ing the close personal relation-
ships which meant so much to me
as a student and as a teacher.
The University of Florida is a
large institution, but size alone
will not make us great. May we
work together to develop a pro-
gram that will be of the highest
quality and at the same time
maintain the close personal rela-
tionships which inspired so many
former students of the University
to lead productive lives as citi-
zens of this state and nation.
Sincerely yours,
John S. Alien,
Vie. President.

In- response to many requests
that have been made by students
at the University, Ed Roberts,
manager of the Florida Theatre,
revealed this week that there
will be a special morning show-
ing of the celebrated picture,
"Henry V" when it comes to
Gainesville in March.
At present, the picture is des-
tined for the Lyric Theatre, but
Roberts stated that if the de-
mand for tickets by the stu-
dents exceeds the capacity of
the Lyric Theatre, the picture
will be shown at either the
State or Florida Theatre.
This special showing is for
bona fide students only. Admission
will be reduced from the regular
admission prices and, although the
morning student show might be
shown at any of the three thea-
tres, the regular performances
will be at the Lyric, as per con-
Roberts also stated that in ac-
cordance with requests from stu-
dents and townspeople, the Flori-
da State Theatres in Gainesville
are going to endeavor to bring
outstanding foreign productions to
the city. The first of these, which
will give the management an idea
as to what response will be re-
ceived, is to be the French pro-
duction "Carmen".
The picture is in French but
will have English captions, and
is based upon the book from
which the opera was written. The
Musical score and background
music will be music from the op-
era. Other foreign productions
will be brought to Gainesville If

Alpha P. Omega

Gathers Views
Has Raised Funds For
Service Organizations
By John Bonner
Who is the ugliest man on the
campus? How many campus
newspapers a week are wanted
by the students? Should the Uni-
versity of Florida have the quar-
ter system, or continue with the
semester system?
The answers of these and many
other questions have been found
through the efforts of an unique
campus organization. Tau chap-
ter, the University of Florida un-
it of Alpha Phi Omega, national
service fraternity, is unique in
that it is composed of former
members of scouting who want to
continue their service to others in
The fraternity carries on many
other projects in addition to sur-
veys. In the past two years they
have raised money for the Red
Cross by running the "Ugliest
Man" contest, conducted the polls
at student elections, handled guide
service, ushered at Homecoming,
ushered at Lyceum programs and
run errands for patients at the
Infirmary in addition to assist.
ing in local boy scout work.
But the APO's seem to thrive
on work, for they are planning
many more projects for the spring
Alpha Phi Omega was founded
at Lafayette College, Dec. 16,
1925, for those scouts who want-
ed to continue their ideas in col-
lege, It has spread to 132 cam-
puses throughout the country since
its founding. Representative of
the projects carried on by the
national organizati n was the

So if you are approached and
asked your opinion, you can as-
siJrle that it's neither a Gallup
Pole or a Hooper Rating, but an
APO, determining campus opin-
ion and you will most likely
notice a lot of the blue-with-yel-
low letters armbands around this
semester, for the Alpha Phi's

A record of almost eady grow-

ROTC p first came to the Univer-
sity campus in 1920, when an in-
fantry unit was established, with
a handful of officers and enlisted
men. By 1929 training was pro-
gressing so favorably that a
branch of the field artillery was
organized, and up until World War
I, training was offered in these
two departments of the army. The
war caused a suspension of train-
ing from 1943 to 1945.
With the end of the fighting,
students once again flocked to the
University and the ROTC unit be-
gan operating again. Infantry and
field artillery were offered and a
third branch, the air force, was
started in the fall of 1946. This
year anti-aircraft has been includ-
ed in the curriculum.
Continuing the high standards
of the pre-war unit, the University
of Florida ROTC received an "Ex-
cellent" rating during the annual
War Department inspections held
last spring. This was the highest
award given.

Florida Teams
Make Good
By Jim Camp
Beginning Jan. 30 and contin-
uing through the mid-semester
holidays, members of Florida's De-
bate Society were kept busy by
three tournaments at the Univer-
sity of Miami,/ Spring Hill Col-
lege in Mobile, Ala., and Univer-
sity of Virginia.
Dor"yl McCa, and Jack Plisco
represented the University of
Florida at the Untversitty of
Msant Invltaional Tourna-
ment held Jan. 30-81 he Uni-
verasties of Chicago, Georgia,
Alabama, Miami, South Caro-
Bna, and Stetson were the oth-
er schools in the tournament.
The Gator negative team, PUlis-
oo and McCall, won five out of
six debates, receiving second place
in over-all rating.
Each speaker was rated in-
dividually in each round of de-
bate. In the six rounds McCall
received four firsts, Plisco garn-
ered oae first and three seconds,
Faircloth gained two firsts and
two seconds, while Bittel received
two first place ratings. The work
of the Florida freshman team of
McOall and Plisco was considered
* From February 5-8 varsity de-
baters, Bill Castagna, Ed Klein,
Jerry Gordon, and Alan Westin
took part in the Azalea Tourna-
ment at Mobile, Ala., where
Spring Hill College was the host
school. The tournament, held dur-
in the time of the Mardi Gras
festival, included 32 teams from
nine states.
Caatagna and Gordon, com-
prising the affirmative squad
places first in five out of six
debates and received an over-
all rating of second place on
the affirmative side, Texas
Christian University ranking
first. The negative team of
Klein and Westin won four out
of six rounds of debate. The
ratings of the Florida teams at
the Azalea Tournament this
year were approximately the
same as those received last
Aside frbm the regular forensic
activities at the tournament, the
Florida combine witnessed two
evening and one afternoon Mardi
Gras parades, took part in a radio
interview, viewed Bellingrath's
Gardens ,and were taken on a guid-
ed tour of Mobile and the Ala-
bama State Docks.
Also during the semester inter-
im, a squad of Gator debaters
composed of Jack Plisco, Ed At-
kins, Walter Apflabaum, and Mar-
ty Cohen attended the University
of Virginia Invitational Tourna-
ment. Participating schools other
than Florida were Randolph-Ma-
con, University of Richmond,
Lynchburg College, Swarthmore
College, Pittsburgh University and
the United States Naval Academy.
This tournament was different
from the two previously men-
tioned in that it was conducted
in the Oregon style of debating.
That is, throughout the tourney
each speaker following his
speech was open to cross-ques-
tioning by the opposition. An-
other unique feature of this tour-
nament was that Instead of the
debaters being judged by critic

NSLI Insurance

Holders Should

Convert Policies

VA officials this week an-
nounced that many veterans who
have National Service Life Insur-
ance, must begin thinking about
converting it. The VA -pointed
out that the new insurance act
provides liberal means for conver-.
sion, and offers features unknown
to many veterans.
Veterans who took out NSLI
policies in 1940 are approaching
their policy time limits. The new
insurance law provides that poli-
cies taken out before the end of
1945 must be converted before
eight years have elapsed. Policies
established since January 1, 1946,
are. five year level premium term
and have a five year limit from
the time they are started in which,
to convert.
Liberal Provisions
Liberal provisions for conver-
sion are made and any one of
seven types of insurance may be
chosen. In selecting type of in-
surance the VA advises that the
type which is best for the veteran
is the type which best fills his
individual needs.
Officials pointed out that all in-
surance policies are devised on
the same arithmatical basis and
that the main differences are in
the methods in which they serve
different needs. It was empha-
sized, however, that for persons
of limited income, the ,NSLI type,
five year level premium term, is
generally advisable since it offers
the maximum protection' at the

d minimum cost.
F Six Types
t For those who need or desire
h to convert their insurance there
is a choice of six different types
to choose from. Any person whose
" policy has been in force for a pe-
riod of one year may convert, ex-
cept that the person who is total-
ly disabled cannot convert to an
endowment policy. The policy
plans are as follows:
1. Ordinary life policies provide
for protection by means of a fix-
ed premium throughout the life-
time of the insured. After the
first policy year the policyholder
can utilize the accumulated cash
value of the policy for conversion
t to other types of insurance, or
Sfor cash loans.
2. Thirty payment life provides
protection by means of a fixed
premium for 30 years. At the end
of the 30 year period the insur-
ance continues in force even
though the premium payment
stops and guaranteed value ac-
cumulates with dividend provi-
sions also in force. The premiums
are somewhat higher than for
term insurance.
3. Twenty payment life is simi-
lar to 30 payment life except that
premiums are higher and extend
over a 20 year period only.
4. Twenty year endowment
policies provide for a fixed pre-
mium to be paid during a pe-
riod of 20 years., At the end of
this time the -policy Is payable
either in full or in monthly in-
stallments to the insured. It is
also payable in full to his bene-
ficiary in the event that he dies
during the 20-year period. This
insurance is naturally more ex-
pensive than the previously
mentioned types.
5. Endowment at the age 60
policies provide for fixed payment
only through the endowment pe-
riod. The endowment period is
the number of full policy years
which, added to- the age of the
insured at the date the policy be-
came effective, totals 60. At the
end of the endowment period, un-
less the policy matures sooner by
death, the full amount of the pol-
icy is payable to the insured in
one sum, or in monthly install-
ments ranging in number from
36 to 240, as he may elect.
6. Endowment at the age 65
is similar to the endowment at
age 60 described above except
that the endowment period is the

Christmas Seals'

Proceeds Double


By Fran White
Results of the 1947 Christmas
Seal Sale campaign conducted on
the campus were made public this
week by Jack Humphries, chair-
man of the campaign. This year's
total contribution was $1,100.80,
as compared with $43.10 in 1945
and $534.85 in 1946.
Although the increased enroll-
ment at the University of Flor-
ida was an important factor in
bringing about the increase in,
contribution, Jess G. Davis,
Christmas Seal Sale chairman
for Alachua County Tuberculo-
sis and Health Association, in a
letter to Dr. J. Hillis Miller,
president of the University,
wrote that too much praise and
credit could not be given Jack
Humphries and his committee
for the Seal Sale, Roble Lee Mi-
lam, Ernest Kopp, and Joe Don-
Plans are being made for the
University of Florida chest X-ray
survey scheduled this month by
the Alachua County Tuberculosis
and Health Association, Mr. Davis
continued. He hopes that the stu-
dents, faculty and other employees
who were not X-rayed last Sep-
tember will avail themselves of the
opportunity this year, knowing
that this is one way their Seal Sale
contribution is being returned to
them in service.
Jack Humphries, seal chair-
man, emphasizes the fact that
the $1,100.80 was received from
the students themselves, and not
from faculty or employees of the
University. In regard to the
money given by the individual
fraternities, he says that when
the size of membership Is con-
sidered, it is obvious that the
contribution of the smaller fra-
ternities is considerable.
Donations by the fraternities is
as follows: Alpha Gamma Rho,
$15; Alpha Tau Omega, $21; Chi

ta Sigma, $15; Delta Tau Delta,

Chlorinator Is Protector

6 The Florida Alligator-Friday, Feb. 13, 1948


By Bill Boyd

IT IS NOT ENOUGH that we bust almost all of our
courses this semester, that we contact the flu just before
exams, that we almost get killed in an auto accident, that
everything but the steering wheel goes bad on our jalopy,
but of all things our own brother in the spirts writing field
takes a punch at us from way up in cold Atlanta. Yep,
that is the limit. Good ole Joe Torcassi, sports editor of
The Technique, Georgia Tech's bi-weekly effort didn't
appreciate our views on the sanity code which the NCAA
adopted recently.
In our recent article we wanted to know why Tech
could sign boys for their icy climate from this land of the
lucky. Mr. Torcassi faithfully promises that he will see
this footballer, Art Ross of Orlando by name, when he
hits the Tech campus and see if he can get the desired
information. The Tech writer seems to feel very happy
over our difficulties both on the field and off. He state-
ed that our season on the gridiron was nil and that we
have much difficulty in keeping our home grown boys
in this state of sunshine. We asked this simple ques-
tion: "Does Tech offer more money than we or do they
stick to the Southeastern Conference rules to the letter?
He also attacks our views on the effect of the purity
code if it is accepted by the Southeastern Conference. We
believe that it will have very little effect on this school or
any school in the Southeastern Conference. True, some of
the prospects might have to get odd jobs around the cam-
pus ranging from. sweeping their rooms to winding eight
day alarm clocks, but they should be able to stand that.
We will admit that we might be wrong, but we still
don't believe that Florida boys leave this fine state to
go to foreign schools just for the trip north. Mr. Tor-
cassi can call that irony or what ever he pleases. We
also will be willing to bet him a steak dinner that our
Gators will give his pure white Yellow Jackets a sound
beating on the field of friendly strife when the- two
teams meet in 1948.

BASEBALL IS HAVING A FACE lifting in the South-
eastern Conference this year. All teams will be required
to play 14 loop tilts. The conference nines have been di-
vided into two divisions, Western and Eastern. Naturally,,
Florida gets the screwy end and is in the WESTERN divi-
sion. If you happen to know why please let us know. The
Eastern Division is composed of Georgia, Georgia Tech,
Kentucky, Tennessee and Vanderbilt. The Western Divi-
sion is composed of Florida, Mississippi, Mississippi State,
.Tulane, L.S.U., Alabama and Auburn.
Just who divided the teams into their order is un-
known by this writer, but as usual we are the doormat
of the conference. For as long as Florida men can re-
member we have been arch rivals of the University of
Georgia. Top reason is they are almost the closest con-
ference opponent we have. There are many and vari-
ous reasons. That in itself seems enough to put us in the
,same division with the Bulldogs. But the conference fa-
thers send us out to Baton Rouge and New Orleans to
play Tulane and L.S.U.... Another of the Southeastern
Conference mysteries.

LATEST RUMORS HAVE IT that Arkansas will re-
place Furman on the Gator schedule for 1949. This would
give the Fighting Gators another tough foe for their al-
ready loaded slate. The Razorbacks under the reins of
Coach John Barnhill, former University of Tennessee men-
tor, have been tough for the last three years and all indi-
cations point to them always. being tough

Gator Basketeers

Atkinson Leads Scoring
With 23 Points
In Massacre

By Steve Grimes
The Florida Southern Moccasin
fell easy prey to the Florida
Gator Tuesday night, when the
University quintet ran away to a
smashing 87-43 victory. The Ga-
tors gave the visiting Lakeland
five a lesson in high-scoring bas-
ketball as they poured in bucket
after bucket with unerring ac-
curacy from all corners of the
Atkinson Stars
Bill Atkinson put the Gators
out in front at the very begin-
ning and from there on, it was
strictly no contest. Only in the
waning minutes of the first half
did Southern show a glimpse of
the form that led them to an up-
set win -over the University of
Miami last week. However, the
Gators coasting on a twenty point
lead at the time had little to wor-
ry about. With the opening of
the second half they initiated an-
other scoring barrage and put the
game on ice.
High Scorers
Fast-breakmg forwards, Atkin-
son and Hamilton, scored over
half the Gator's points. Atkinson
netted 23, 20 in the first, while
Hamilton set a torrid pace in
the last period to chalk up 22.
Taenzler, Gator basket leader,
handicapped by fouls committed
early in the game, scored 12.
Chuck Terry and Bob Ward con-
tributed 12 points apiece to make
tip what little scoring punch the
visitors showed.

intra-squad game will culminate
eight weeks of practice March 26.
Light work will continue for a
couple of weeks before rough work
begins. Individual work and fun-

Coach Wolf who said, "We have
lots of work to do." Several in-

the 1948 Gators.

Williams Returns
Angus Williams, triple theater

Coach Wolf expressed his sin-

and people throughout the state
for their fine support given the
"Experience gained in the 1946
and '47 seasons has been a great
help and should make an improved
Gator team for this season," Coach
Wolf ventured about the prospects
of the team in "competition that
will be much keener than last year
with a harder and more represen-
tative schedule."

Gator Tankmen To invdae Georgia

For Second Three-Day oad Trip

Florida Will Face

Georgia, Emory,
Tech Swimmers

The University of Florida swim-
ming team will take off on its sec-
ond three-day invasion of another
state Wednesday morning when
Coach Frank Genovar leads his
charges into Georgia for dual com-
petition with the University of
Georgia, Emory, and Georgia
Florida tankmen open their road
stand in Athens Thursday night
against the powerful Georgia Bull-
dogs, then move on to Atlanta for
a two-day stopover. Emory plays
host to the Gators Friday after-
noon and Georgia Tech's Yellow
Jackets will entertain Florida
Saturday night.
After Second Win
The Orange and Blue aqua-men
will have their sights trained on
their second victory of the season
when they go against Georgia
Thursday. In previous competition
this season the Gators outpointed
Duke 43-33, in the third of a series
of meets In the Tarheel state after
bowing to North Carolina State
and the University of North Caro-
lina by scores of 45%-29% and
53-22, respectively.
Georgia's tank team Is rated
highly in Southeastern Conference
and has chalked up a better-than-
average record to date. The Bull-
dogs are paced by Stewart, a com-
bination backstroker and freestyler
who posted times of 2:22 in the
swimming circles this year and has
220-yd. free style and 54 seconds
In the 100-yd. free style in early
seasons competition this year.
Georgia will be out to avenge last
year's defeat at the hands of Flor-
ida when the two teams clash.
Emory and Georgia Tech also
each boast a formidable array of
swimmers and will be hard to beat
in their home waters. Both these
teams won a pair of decisions from
the Gators last season.
Genovar Hopeful
Coach Genovar is keying up his
squad in hopes of bringing the

Returning Gator Semi-Finals Are

B Reached in Fral

Angus Williams, 1945 Gator
quarterback, is back In uniform
after a hitch In the service. Wil-
liams held down a first string
berth here his freshman year.
His field generalship is expected
to bolster the Gator attack next

the .500 mark. "But we've got a
tough job on our hands," he warns.
"All three of these teams are
equally as good as the opposition
we faced in Carolina."
Captain Billy Harlan, a senior
who carries the Orange and Blue's
colors to the springboard along
with Billy Bracken, will lead the
Gators into action once more.
Coach Genovar has not announced
his traveling squad as yet, but re-
vealed that it will probably be
composed of the same men who
made the Carolina trip last month,
plus possibly one more swimmer.
That means that, in addition to
the two divers, those making the
trip will probably include free-
stylers Bill Pepper, Jack Ford,
John Cornell, and Lou Brown;
breaststroker Bob MoDougal; and
backstroker Tom Brown, Fred

825 Contests Played
Under Competent
The Intramural Department an-
nounced that they conducted 825
contests requiring the services of
50 officials. The quality of the of-
.ficiating is indicated by the fact
that only one protested game has
found the official in error. Within
the University's large intramural
program many future high school
and college referees are now serv-
ing valuable apprenticeship.
The driving force behind com-
petent work is the Florida Intra-
mural Officials Club, an organi-
zation which undertakes the job
of ranking its members according
to progress and efficiency.
Course Offered
A course designed especially for
potential officials is offered in the
professional curriculum of the
College of Physical Education,
Health and Athletics. In addition
to providing a broad knowledge
of all competitive, athletics, t h e
course requires a minimum of 15
hours in an official capacity on
the field of play.
Coach Spurgeon Cherry, head
of the Department of Intramur-
als, meets with this student .group
regularly to discuss questionable
decisions and rule interpretations.
While the officials receive
much in the way of, experience
and knowledge of sports, they are
not called upon to donate their
services without fair compensa-
tion. A sum of cash is paid each
official for his time and efforts.

The'Story of
Conrad Bechard
"When I came back to General Electric
after getting my Army discharge," Conrad
Bechard says, "the thing that impressed me
most was the way the personnel people said,
'What would you like to do?' The way they
said it meant very clearly that if there was
any special field that interested me, they'd
try to see that I got a crack at it."
Con had an answer ready. He had heard a
lot about Nela Park, General Electric's
"University of Light" in Cleveland, Ohio.
"I'd like to go to Nela Park," he said.
It was a big leap for him. He was asking
for an assignment in a field in which he had
had no previous training-not at Union
College where he had gotten his degree in
1941, nor on "Test" with General Electric.
In the Army he had worked in electronics.
Nela Park would be a totally new experience.
But Personnel said Okay. In the two years
since then, Con Bechard has contributed to
better production machinery for making the
new circular fluorescent lamps known as
Circlines, and has helped improve their qual-
ity and life.
For your copy of "Careers in the Electrical
Industry," write to Dept. 237-6, General
Electric Company, Schenectady, N. Y.

Today Con Bechard works on lighting prob-
lems at Nela Park, center of research aim-
ing at broader knowledge of light and
lighting. ,

During his Army service in Italy, Con won
the Bronze Star for his invention of a
"Chaff" dispenser used to foil Nazi radar.

MacFadden For
Governor Club
Headed By Stone
At a meeting last Tuesday af-
ternoon in the Florida Union,
the "Bernarr MacFadden for
Governor Club" was organized,
and MacStone ,senior law stu-
dent, was elected chairman of
the group.
It was decided that only one
permanent officer should be instal-
led, that being a chairman. His
official duties wil be to call, and
preside at, future meetings. Every
member was urged to join in the
planning and active campaigning.
A resolution was presented
and adopted declaring that Ber-
narr MacFadden possessed every
element to make Florida a great
governor. The resolution con-
tained, "His experience as found-
er and head of one of America's
great publishing empires, the
wisdom of his 79 years, coupled
with the fact that he has pre-
served his youth In body and
spirit, makes'him well-qualified
to serve our state."
MrcFadden, who considers Flor-
ida a sleeping giant, is for a pro-
gressive Florida. He has outlined
10 main points for his platform,
which deals with the citrus, cattle
and agricultural industries of the
state, as wel as with health, ed-
ucational, highways, and indus-
trial factions.

Spring fever and the G'ville fel-
lows swept the campus simul-
taneously this past weekend. Both
were gone by Monday as rain
brought cold weather and classes
and the University of Florida
took the men.
Some of you Florida students
must have howled at Krasna's
modern play, "John Loves Mary,"
presented by the Virginia Barter
Theatre Friday night. If you
didn't laugh at the soldier return-
ihg home to his girl you probably
enjoyed Shakespeare's c ome d y,

ning. And if you were lucky
enough to see both, did you no-
tice the versatility of the Barter
actors ?"

Maybe you preferred to go to

ning. Did you see Dr. Doak S.
Campbell, FSU's president, crown
Bobbie Love queen of Sophomore
Hop? Wasn't the king, Bobbie's
date, surprised when he received
the royal title? The story behind
this is short-Bobbie's date was
ill and Bobbie in her "queenly"
excitement forgot to tell her new
date that he was to be treated
Perhaps you gave the sopho-
mores the gate and found your
"queen of hearts" at the Jennie
Murphree annual formal.
Some of you must have seen
the eight barracks on West Cam-
pus being remodeled for a tem,-
porary "fraternity row." The men
belonging to the eight local frats
plan to .move into their respective

While you were here at FSU
did your special girl or blind date
tell you about the presidential-
favorite poll taken by a Flambeau
reporter or about the new frat
rule and corsages?

John Cash, writer of the Male

New Grading

Plan Applied By

ASCE Members

Recommends New
Salaries For

A new-point-system formula rec-
ommended by the American So-
ciety of Civil Engineers to cover
its members in the teaching pro-
fession has recently been author-
ized. After a year's study during
a period when the problem of
teacher's salaries was a subject of
national interest for educators in
all grades, the Committee on Sal-
aries recommended t he Board of
Direction of the society a formula
which applies 'slide-rule precision
to the grading of teachers. .
A previously recommended clas-
sification and Composition Plan
established grades for civil engi-
neers of various experience. These
grades closely parallel federal
schedules for professional em-
On recommendation of the Com-
mittee on Salaries, the Board of
Direction authorized inclusions of
civil engineering teachers in the
general schedule, the new formula
to be used to match their duties,
responsibilities and prerequisites
with those of civil engineers in
other fields of the profession.
Salaries recommended are: in-
structors, from $2,700 to $4,200;
assistant professors, $4,200 to $6,-
100; associate professors, $6,100 to
$8,600; and professors, $8,600 to
$12,600. Teaching salaries should
approximate the prevailing rates
for practitioners in permanent em-
ployment," the committee empha-
sized in pointing out that need "to
hold the large number of teachers
"who can and will abandon teach-
ing because they cannot live on the
salaries paid," and to attract the
high-grade engineers who could be
equally successful in either field.

Peabody Madrigalians To Present

Concert Monday At P. K. Yonge

Famous Group From Nashville Teachers
College Sings Old Southern Songs

The famed Southern choral
group, "The Peabody Madrigal-

winter season of madrigals, folk
songs, folk hymns and southern
folk songs Monday evening at 8
o'clock in P. K. Yonge auditorium.
The "Madrigalians" was organ-
ized eight years ago and since then
has done considerable concertizing
for schools and colleges.
A communique from Peabody

The machines which facilitate

principle and operation. The lo-
cal opreator takes the message
which you have written or tele-
phoned and copies it on the per-
forator machine. As she strikes
each letter on the keyboard of
this machine, holes are punched
on paper tape, similar in size
to ticker tape used by stock
markets. These holes vary in
number from one to five and
are grouped much as Braille
letters are. This tape with per-
forations is then fed into the
the transmitting machine,
which, by a series of levers and
electrical contacts through 1he
perforations, sent out a differ-
ent electrical impulse over the
wires for each letter and num-

transmission machine, pushes a
button on the switchboard in
front of her to connect the trans-
mitter with the next switching
station and the message is once'
again on its way with the mini-
mum of human aid.
At the next switching sta-
tion the message goes through
the same procedure, saving
time, effort, and possible error.
Therefore, if you were to send a
telegram to Wichita Falls, Tex.,
under the new, system from
Gainesville,- it would go direct
to Atlanta, Dallas and Wichita
Falls with total time between
place or irigin and destination
only one minute instead of 30
minutes or more as in the past.
At the receiving station or of-
fice, the message is received on a
teletype machine in the usual
manner. The tape, with the mes-
sage now printed instead of being.
perforated, is cut and placed on
a sheet of paper, ready to be de-
livered to the addressee by tele-
phone or messenger.
Messages originating from the
campus will continue to be relay-
ed to the downtown office from

New Semester With Advice

A new semester has begun, both in studies, activities
and the issuing of the Florida Alligator. To the new stu-
dents, we give a hearty welcome; to all the students on
the campus, we offer the following advice:
Some of you will manage to drop out of school during
the first few weeks. Sometimes it can't be helped, and
then again, it is because you haven't balanced your activi-
Thus, we urge each student to work out for himself a
well balanced schedule of activities and studies. There
are a few who can handle full load of courses and make
good grades. That is all well and good, provided you can
also find time to enjoy campus life and social activities.
A well-rounded out program in extra-curricula, social,
and academic activities is the ideal goal to work for these
first few days of the semester. Don't overload yourself
with studies, or with outside interests. We urge you to
map out your time and spend it wisely.

Are We A Whistle-Stop?

If the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. Company succeeds
in their petition to discontinue the two pre-dawn early
morning passenger trains which pass through Gainesville,
University students along with Gainesville citizens will
suffer an extremely poor mail and passenger service.
This issue is now pending a hearing bNfore the Florida
Railroad and Public Utilities Commission in Leesburg set
for next Tuesday. Along with other interest groups, Bil-
ly Matthews has been appointed by Dr. Miller to represent
campus interests.
ACL authorities have stated that the two night trains
through Gainesville are operating at a terrific loss which
is the reason for the petition. If anything, the University
City could well use more trains or an even better service
than it has had in the past.
No one expects the ACL to operate at a loss, but from
the standpoint of practical purpose and convenience,
Gainesville has always been the step-child of the railways.
We feel that Gainesville is one of the, more important
cities of Florida, and it seems that if the railway-authori-
ties-that-be would offer a better train service between
Gainesville and outside points, the iron horse industry
would enjoy a profit boom for a change.
Even with four trains a day, it is impossible to catch
one and go where you want to go without first making a
sweeping tour of every place you don't want to go.

Best Time For The Best Way

With one of the most significant and timely educatidn-
al conferences since the turn of the century to be held onil
this campus in conjunction with President Miller's inaugu-
ration program March 4, it is well to turn our thoughts to
the primary problems such a conference faces.
Regional educational planning will highlight the con-
ference, which will bring together nearly a dozen South-
ern governors-the very same ones who have figured in
the headlines of all newspapers this week.
This week, we want to quote from the latest issue of
Time magazine, in which an educational article entitled
"The One Best Way" brought up a delicate problem which
this University might face in'1948. I
"Last week, the first major cracks appeared in the
wall of Jim Crow education: Delaware, one of 17 states
with Jim Crow laws (which includes segregation, etc.)
announced that it would adniit negro students to any
course not offered by the Delaware State College for
*Negroes. The U. of Maryland now has 23 negro law e
students. John Hopkins U. in Baltimore has also admit- t
ted negroes. The U. of Arkansas said that a negro could
enter, and study under the regular facult,-but in a sep- E
arate classroom A state regent in Oklahoma urged I
that negro graduates be admitted to Oklahoma-just to
save the state money.
"In St. Louis, The Post-Dispatch pronounced: it costs t
only $228 a year to educate each white law student at v
the U. of Missouri. But the state must pay $807 for each t
law-student in the separate (negro) school-and the 44
negroes still don't get a really equal education. Admit- b'
ting negroes to the university was the one best way to i
correct an expensive error."i
We haven't been faced with a decision as yet but we e
urge student organizations and the administration staff to c
discuss this question while no one is mad, and while every- t
one can sensibly form a decision in his best mind. it

Yep, Thos e Were The Days
Once again we're confronted with Valentine's Day. k
Terrible nuisance, isn't it ? Bet most of you guys have for-
gotten what day it falls on and that you should have sent
Mom and the girl friend a box of chocolates, or else a nice,
big, fancy card.
But once upon a time those valentines meant a lot to
us. .Remember the days in the third grade; they had a
box covered with crepe paper in the corner at the front of
the room. Into that box you dropped your heart and- soul
in the form of a card inscribed: "To Lucy-Belle."
Some of the girls seemed to get all the cards. You
probably put one in the box for that good-lookin' gal in
the third row, fourth ;seat, yourself. It was just a matter n
of form. There was another one in that box from you, a
one to that sweet little nobody in the back of the room, the h
one who studied so hard and walked home from school
alone. She got one card that day, and it was from you. r;
She tried not to show her feelings when she got it, but you e
could tell it meant everything in the world to her s
Yep, those were the days. They're gone now.
Bet you got a card this year from some girl, bet she i
means a lot to you. Bet, too, you forgot to send her one. li
Right? She'll understand. She isn't the little girl in the
back row anymore. b

Here's a little story for the
books. It concerns a high school
coach and his pregnant wife,
some men with white sheets, a
scared sheriff and about 140 mil-
lion other Americans. It also con-
earns the governing joes in the
capitol city of Washington.
Seems like the high school
coach, Walter Boland of Lake-
view, Ga., had definite ideas of
how a crack basketball squad
should be run. Coaches are train-
ed to do that. But, somehow, his
ideas didn't click with one of the
students, and Coach Boland and
the student had a quarrel.
Fairly normal so far. Very few
coaches ever live a week without
some sort of argument over team
policies. In the High School Har-
ry crowd every juvenile is a star
and it takes more than tact to
please them.
Now as the background music
swings to "Dixie" the plot begins
to sicken. Not only did Coach Bo-
land have kid trouble but Klan
trouble as well.
Hooray, the Ku Klucksers of
Georgia had finally found an ex-
cuse for their existence. First the
night-cowards demanded that Bo-
land leave town. Boland told them
what they could do to themselves.
So a flaming cross descended
upon the Boland Family's lawn..
Mrs. Walter Boland, a very

Ordinary Hw to Get the Chicken Back in the Egg

Times w ,. ,


Five crosses-one at each corn-
er and one in the center-domi-
nate the altar in every Roman Ca-
tholic Church. They symbolize an
event of some two thousand years
ago when a meek and mild toiler
was led from the comforting pres- .,
ence of olive trees in the garden
of Gethsemane to the windy
heights of Calvary.
Remember the Sermon on the
Mount? Jesus saw the multitudes ,
following him, and He went up
onto a mountain and taught a
great system of ethics and love
which to our day remains un-
excelled. The Sermon on the Mount
teaches the elimination of self-de-
sire, the cause of all evil accord-
ing to Buddha six hundred years
before. The Sermon on the Mount
says to turn the other cheek and
-go the other mile. The Sermon on
the Mount prays, "Our Father
which-art in Heaven, Hallowed be
thy name ."
And Jesus made the colossal
mistake of following the Sermon j -
on the Mount as a pattern of life.
For that, he gave his body.

For the first time since the war,
registration at the University is
in a state of chaos. Never have so
many students had to stand in
line so long and get so fouled up
as they have this past registra-
tion period. Let us elaborate and
then go into detail.
Joe Baldoskinovitch is a new
student. Joe hails from Pennsyl-
vania, but ife decided to go to
school in Florida so he could learn
to read figures. Besides that, they
dangled a football scholarship in
front of his nose. Joe drove up in
his new Chrysler, a gift from the
University. Joe went to his apart-
ment, a gift from the University.
Joe took a hot shower, a gift from
heaven. Then he went to register.
Joe took his place in line,
which was about two blocks west
of the golf course. When he ar-
rived at the door, he was handed
an envelope. In it was his regis-
tration card and a few inciden-
tals. In fact, there were so many
"few incidentals" in his envelope
that Joe couldn't find his r'egis-
tration card. Joe was puzzled. He
was oiked, which is Yankee for
There was some dame at the
front of the room voicing instruc-
tions. "Reach in and pull out a
card," she says. Joe reaches In
and pulls out a card. It was a
ticket that was good for 25 cents
worth of used axel grease. Joe
fished again. This time he got a
card entitling him to one free
conference with the head of the
economics department. A third
thrust into the envelope. Ah, the
schedule of courses! Joe felt that
he .was getting warmer. So he
took off his coat. He fished again.
Look! A card giving him a free
package of cigarettes. All he had
to do is go to the Union Building,
look up this cigarette representa-
tive and answer one simple ques-
tion, such as: who played left
guard on the Notre Dame team of
1924 that played in the Rose Bowl
that year and what was the score
of the Lacrosse game between the
Sioux and Cheyennes that w as
played on the same field 100
years before the game that the
question was about when the
guard played on that team in
1924 ?
Joe didn't smoke anyhow. Once
again, Joe reached into his enve-
lope. This time he was awarded
with a map of the canyons on the
There must be one more card in
Joe's envelope, so, figuring he
had nothing to lose, he gambled.
And so it goes. No one knows
how many Joes had to go through
the painful registration and com-
mercial process. I wonder what
company will sponsor registra-
tion at the University next fall?

"Sounds like that shooting' is

said Tex.
So Tex headed on into town.
