ALLIGATOR To Expand To Twice A Weer In Keeping With Campus Growth
The Florida ALLIGATOR, dedicated to student inter-
eat, will begin publication two times a week, beginning
Wednesday, it was announced this week, following ap-
proval of a plan presented to the Board of Student Publi-
cations by Pen Gaines, editor.
To keep pace with one of the fastest growing univer-
sities in the nation, the Alligator is stepping up the num-
ber of publications' in order to better cover the more
rapidly made events on the campus, and to slice the one
large Friday issue into separate papers for better and
"We feel," Gaines said, "that in this way the students
on the campus will read news while it is alive, and that the
newspaper will be of greater service to all on the campus."
To Begin Wednesday
Under the new plan, the ALLIGATOR will be published
Wednesday and Friday mornings, with a four and six-
page paper respectively. This venture was begun in 1942
/ in small tabloid form, but was abandoned after several
"The success of such an undertaking in the middle of
the year," Gaines added, "depends partly on the back-
ing received by organizations and news sources on the
.For a long time the staff has felt the need of a paper
coming out twice a week to better serve the University
community of 13,600. There is enough news happening
to warrant a semi-weekly and that news should be pre-
sented closer to the time of the event than it has in the
The students will find that they will have time to read
the paper more completely than they were able to do with
a large Friday edition.
Deadlines For All
New deadlines and other facts about this new venture
were emphasized for the benefit of all organizations and-.
individuals who submit stories to the ALLIGATOR.
The first edition will be printed. Tuesday afternoon.
Deadline for Clubs and Organizations news will be Mon--
day afternoon at 3 o'clock, with only those clubs who
meet Monday night acceptable first thing Tuesday

The second edition deadlines will be 3 o'clock Wednes-
day for clubs and organizations; 10:30 Thursday morning
for sports, and 11:30 Thursday morning for all news items.
Photographs have to be in by Tuesday afternoon at 5
T 'With the Orange and Blue Bulletin unable to print
enough student notices, the ALLIGATOR will be used
more and more for up-to-the-minute notices, both faculty,
,administrative and student interest.
Staff positions will be opened, with more and more
practical jobs to be filled. More people will actually
have a chance to do more planning and lay-out work for

No Veterans' Book Loss,
Declares Doctor Miller
University President Explains School's
Recent Tuition Raise To $175
By Bob Browder
Veteran students here will not
have to pay for any part of their
college education under the G. I.
Bill, according to a statement by
President J. Hillis Miller today.
Rumors about the changes in
tuition fees here have reached
and passed the "letter to the edi-
tor" stage, and many students
have been worrying about the
possibility of having to pay some
difference out of their already
In spiking these rumors, Pres-
ident Miller stated that the to-
tal cost of tuition and books
will not exceed the $500 max-
imum allowed under the law.
"We will have to make some
adjustments s ourselves, and if a
student should exceed the maxi-
mum before these adjustments
are made, the University will
will take care of the difference
in some way."
Under the system formerly in
effect the $500 allowed each stu-
dent was broken down into $250
per semester. Of this $250 the
University received only $75. Any
amount above this $76 that was
used for books and supplies was
paid by the government. Any
amount between the amount use i
and the $250 allowed was no.
Because of the heavy influx o0
veteran students during the past"
two years many new facult;'
members were hired for Unv.er.
sity College. These classes are
now entering the upper division,
causing a faculty shortage to ex-
ist there. Under the new arrange-
ment the University will receive
$150 instead of $75 and the ad-
justment will be used to "buy"
faculty members instead of
Indications point to the fact
that some departments are us-
ing more books and supplies
than they actually need. Dr.
Miller states that these needs
will be reevaluated and brought
into line with actual require-
ments. In this way the students
will get what they need, and
they will get It without cost to

An overflow crowd jammed the

purpose of welcoming new stu-
dents to the campus.
E a c h separate organization
within BSU, such as Sunday
School classes and Baptist Train-

of talent to the program and the
result was a generous mixture of
quartets, solo numbers, skits,
stunts and a mock wedding. Jul-

the music for the whole affair.
On the serious side, Tom Steele

RESERVED SEATS FOR GATOR GRID games will so
get an airing out for the students. The Athletic Coun
suggested to the Executive Council that some sort of
serve seat system be worked out for the student body.
'such a system could be worked out it would really be wo
derful, but unless it is worked out right it will end up 1
ing just a lot of work, for the already overworked, tick
officials here at the University. A system of reserve
seats was used this past year at the, University of Sou
Carolina and quotes from Ken Baldwin, sports editor
the South Carolina Gamecock, show that such a system
can be very inadequate.
This particular situation took place at the South Caro
lina-Wake Forest game Thanksgiving. "The more w
.think of it, the more we're convinced that tickets in
student section should not be reserved, but on a 'firs
come, first served' basis. A lot of people didn't get their
right seats and as you've guessed, we didn't either. Lat
comers were duly perturbed upon discovering that their
seats had been taken and they had to take poorer seats
cMany sat in the aisles. Ushers didn't take much cart
to see that people got their right seats and the fact tha
non-students were able to buy tickets in the student sec
tion added to the confusion."
Baldwin continues "More than one such person attempt
ing to gain his proper seat with the aid of a policeman w
faced with cries of 'Make him show his athletic card'
'He's not a student.'"
This would be something for the Executive Counci
to take into consideration before they jump into thi
problem up to their necks.

'GATOR Swings To A Semi
Another of THE ALLIGATOR'S goals will be realized
next week when students will find that they have two edi-
tions before them instead of the customary one issue ap-
pearing Friday. The 'GATOR is switching to a semi-
For a long time the staff has felt the need of a paper
coming out twice a week to better serve this University
community of 13,000. There is enough news happening
to warrant a semi-weekly and that news should be present-
ed closer to the time of event than it has in the past.
Plans are for a four-page edition Wednesday morning
and a six-page edition Friday morning. Should a week of
major importance approach-for instance, Homecoming
-the Tuesday issue will not appear and the Friday issue
will add enough extra pages to thoroughly cover the ac-
At present the set-up is temporary. It may be difficult
":,,king in to a semi and the result may be failure. If
happens the 'GATOR will go back to the large week-
.,at it has been. Failure, however, is naturally not an-
iated, for the staff believes that the work will be han-
':-cd much more efficiently.
It is hoped that the student body will be in accord with
the new set-up and that students will find time to read the
paper more completely than they were able to do with the
10 Per Cent Housed By Univ.
There will be many times in the future when loud cries
will be heard from our neighbors at Florida State Univer-
sity for a 50-50 split in appropriations for housing.
When these demands issue forth let it be remembered
that Florida State now houses 60 per cent of its students
right on campus while the University of Florida is able to
take care of only 10, per cent of its student body of over
9,000. When this percentage is equalized thousands of
Florida students will cease paying exhorbitant rents to
Use Voting Power For UF
"Voting is a privilege" is a phrase that has been used
many times but even "calloused" students of political
science realize that it remains a true one.
Democratic primaries occur May 4 and May 27. At the
University of Florida there is a tremendous potential vote,
one capable of carrying much weight with any candidate
for governor. It is up to eligible students to get their
names on the registration books as soon as possible and
then examine the. platforms of the candidates, paying par-
ticular attention to their stated attitudes toward this state
Our voting' power can accomplish much good for the
University of Florida. Let's use it.
Why Not Four Girls' Dorms?
President Miller came back from -the Board of Control
meeting this week with more news of a greater building
program for the University of Florida. He came back this
time with that long sought-for plan approved for dormito-
ries, pending release of money.
The ALLIGATOR has continuously pulled for a greater
University, and we take this announcement with pride and
hope that it will soon be a reality. We are happy to hear
It is with a serious thought, though, that we wonder
about the number allotted for girls and for th.y men. Ac-
cording to the list, there will be four for men and two for
girls. It would seem more logical, howe ver, if the figure
vwas the other way around. You see, there are no girls liv-
ing on campus now, and there are five men's dorms, as
well as temporary facilities.
Soon the enrollment for the boys will level off. The
girls will come in greater numbers. It is even hoped that
the ratio will be more equalized. Thus, it would seem log-
ical at this time that the need would be more for four girl
dormitories than for four men's dormitories.
We present this as a suggestion, hoping that our reason-
ing holds true, and that our conclusion is logical.
Meditation Is necessary
Religious Emphasis Week will be observed here on the
Florida campus next week, and it is with a desire for in-
dividual benefit that this newspaper urges all who can to
take part in this program.
We feel that students here will come tc an observance
like this, and, by taking only a few minutes of time for
meditation, will realize the necessity for changing a few
of their ways now before their lives become set. By care-
ful consideration of their lives and the way in which their
thoughts and desires are taking them, many students bene-
fit a great deal by at least emphasizing more religion in
their own lives.
In order to gain such a benefit from this week, partici-
pate in the program as much as possible.
Feb. 21, 1948.
Listen Kitty, do you remember
when I told you that you might
be able to come down and we'd
get married? Well, it's off all off
for the time being anyway.
It ain't fun being a hackie in
this burg, sweetheart. It's a whole
lot worse than the big town .
and that's where all the trouble
comes in. All the time, trouble.
You'd think a guy like me could
settle down and get married to a
sweet kid like you.
Here's how it was. When I came
down, I figured, owning my own
cab an' all, I'd be able to pick my
trade. It worked out all right for
a few weeks, A lot of the char-
acters from around 53rd St. were
here for the tracks bookies,
jockeys, the fast and smart oper-
ators, they all knew me. And they
were all good for a fin or more
every time I hauled them.
Which is very easy, baby. And
I used ta think about you all the
time I was driving' out to the track
and I even had a place picked out
ror us to live.
I dunno how all these things
happen to me.
One night I'm coming back
from eating chow and shooting a
couple of games of pool with
some of the local boys when this
dame hails me. Or better, she
rushes out of her house and comes
yelling after me I should stop. I
figure, maybe the broad's gonna
have a kid and the street ain't no
place to have a baby. It ain't de-
She sits up on the edge of the
seat back there and ,I see she
ain't wearing nothing' but some-
thing, flimsy and a komona ya
know, one of those things that

women wrap around.
"Where to, lady?" I says. "Just

I sneak a look in the mirror
at the babe. Good-lookin' but
kinda nervous and she sure ain't
in the family way. Something else
is eating her. And she keeps both-
ering me to drive faster, faster.
I say to myself, to you, angel
if I ever get out of this, no more
hackin'. I'll go become a book-
binder, like you always said I
should. What can -happen in a
book-binding factory. But then, a
shmo like me would get his hand
stuck in the machine, probably.
We reach Curly's, an all night
juke joint and bar, and she rushes
out, komona and all, rushes out,
slams the cab door and slams the
door of Curly's. "Walt for me,"
So I wait, and the next thing
I hear is four or five blasts like
a .38 going off and this babe
comes flyin' out of Curly's and
into the hack. She looks wild, hair
all messed up and tears stream-
ing down her face. "Drive," she
says, "let's get outta here. I killed
him, I killed the dirty b---d."
That's about it Kitty. And here
I sit, a soft-hearted jerk a no-
good slob. I guess we wait some
more. The judge says I'm an ac-
cessory or something. After the
fact, he says.
What the hell.

And they bring to the mind of
this author one fact-that in the
world, with its guts eternally torn
with strife and hatred, men can
act in unison. There is no doubt,
all types fight side by side.
The brown, lithe Jew, the pilot,
feared for his own life and felt
heavily the responsibility for-the
lives of his fellow flyers. The
younger pug-nosed Irishman, in
the co-pilot's seat at his side,

The navigator, raised in an anti-
Semitic home and just out of high
school, took childish pleasure in
playing with guns-any type of
guns. It was his habit of sinning,
confessing to the Catholic fa-

the wrong thing to do, he said..
But he was young.
The Protestants were as all
young protestants careless in
their religion, predestinarians, liv-
ing for today only. Their confes-
sion and their pleading, if it was
done at all, was performed over
a type of telephone wire direct

of the airship's innards rode the
shaveless Mormon tail-gunner.

but allowed him to mingle closely

By Gerald Clarke
Just fresh from a concert in the
Gainesville High Auditorium, I
have nothing tc offer but praise
for a young American contralto
named Eula Beal. Before Tuesday
night's song session, her name
frightened me a little. I suppose
that still in the back of my mind
lurks the notion that I should be-
ware of American names. For
some reason it is still a bit easier
to accept a nice solid, un-pro-
nounceable foreign name when it
comes to musical personages. This
bit of snobbery appalls me when
I'm rational about it, but, as I
said, it still hovers in the shadowy
corners of my brain and often
comes out to poke a lifted-pinky
at unfortunate American artists.
Eula Beal made a perfect target
for my nasty little, anti-American
demon. Only lately has she begun
to make a real name for herself
and beside that, she is as Ameri-
can as can be-so I was skeptical
-almost so much that I didn't use
my ticket to the concert on Tues-
Well-the moral of the story is
-even though I haven't finished
telling it-don't be skeptical about
American artists even if they are
young. Eula'Beal gave one of the
most-and here I use a word which
I wouldn't use except that it means
exactly what I want to say-she
gave one of the most thrilling con-
tralto concerts which it has been
my privilege to hear.
The anti-American, anti-youth
sentiment is found in ever so many
more places than just in me and I
think it is to be regretted. It is
found in Gainesville among people
I know; worse though, by far, it
is found in the leading musical
This not written to promote any
musical jingoism. I'd just like to
point up with my experiences,
something which I believe very
strongly: that musical snobbery is
as bad as any other kind. I'm not
the least bit in favor of deporting
Ginette Neveu because I think Pa-
tricia Travers needs protection.
Certainly I hope these words don't
reach the eyes of certain politi-
cians. If they ever come to real-
ize what is going on in the musi-
cal field, we'll surely have a tariff
on foreign artists to protect the
home grown brand.
Eula Beal's warm, colorful voice
persuaded me to write this little
piece. Inwardly, I suppose, I was
ready to give her a cool reception.
She was irresistible and so was
the temptation publicly to clear

attention to the rest of the letter,
especially the last paragraph
which begins with: "Incidentally
minor changes your great
ability full instructions under
separate cover .
The instructions arrive. The
first letter said "full instructions"
so your heart gradually slows
down and you tell yourself that if
that is all then surely you can lose'
nothing by agreeing. Next comes
along the contract, the binder, the
strings which will either tie you
hand and foot or fly your kite high
into the unknown. You hold your
breath while you read the dreaded
thing, fling it aside and begin to
rave. You've been robbed! You
won't sign it! You'll use the man-
uscript to start fires with first!
Then a tiny voice reminds you that
you were lucky to have ever sold

The first "full instructions"
prove to be an understatement.
More and still more pour in from
the editors. You wonder what in
the world they liked about the
thing in the first place. You re-
fuse to make changes; you wind
up by making all the changes. At
a later date they decide that you
were right in the first place and
you go back to the original. They
insist the heroine's name be
changed; you refuse. Many tears
and insults later you change her
name throughout a 535-page nov-
el. But-you guessed it. They de-
cide they like the name she had
at first, this one doesn't suit her
personality, and off we go again,
fighting courageously to see that
she isn't called one' thing in one
paragraph and something else in
another and so on up to the
last minute before the printing
presses begin to roll. Whoever
said, "Leave it to the editors,"
was sure optimistic. By the time
you see your efforts in bound
form, ready for the reading pub-
lic, you have turned your mate-
rial, like a made-over garment,
tail to top, inside out, bottomside
up, and feel and act as if your
veins were filled with red ink and
your head with paragraphs of

Your first desire is to hide, to
crawl into the nearest hole and
pull it in behind you. But you
don't. You start talking (the pub-
lishers have neglected to say "Go"
but you figure no matter what
you say can be any worse than
what has already been said), tell-
ing the story in all variations,
never the same way twice, using
the last ounce of your imagina-
tion to keep it from becoming
stale. You are rushed here, rush-
ed there, flattered and feted, and
almost become convinced that you
have done something out of the
ordinary. Then the critics descend
upon you with talons sharpened,
and wherever they find a weak
spot they rip and tear.

We hear from reliable sources
that five or six more sororities are
going to colonize on the campus.
Say, any of you guys ever been
behind the doors of a sorority*
house? And I don't mean hiding.
Those girls sure lead an interest-
ing life. Now, I am not going to
reveal the secret of entry into one
of these harems, because I am un-
der bound oath not to reveal it.
Besides, the boys at the ATO
house wouldn't like it.
There are a lot of cute gals in
these sororities that are here.
Know that cute little blonde in the
KD's? You oughta see her when
she gets ready to retire. Brother,
no wonder there's a grease short-
age. She's got it all on her face,
And those curls that everyone ad-
mires. They oughta be pretty; she
paid a pretty penny for 'em.
The sorority sisters are a lot of
fun, though. Over at the ADPi
house, they have a nightly ritual.
They all go to bed. Those girls
over there sure are a nice bunch,
though. Darn it.
There are only two things that
these girls live for. Men and boys.
Let's follow the activities the
girls pursue in a normal day. First
thing, they get up. And if you
could see some of 'em, you'd won-
'der why. Then they eat breakfast.
It consists of toast, coffee, and
three helpings of cat food.
Comes time for class, and they
all trek over to the Chemistry Au-
ditorium for Marriage and the
Family. An hour later, they blush-
ingly emerge from class. Some of
them head for other classes, some
for a refreshing coke, and the rest
scat back to the sorority house for
more cat food.
What the girls really look for-
ward to are the social weekends
that descend upon the campus ever
so often. So often we hardly get
over one before another is here.
We can always tell when the
sororities are planning on a big
weekend. Big shipments .are al-
ways seen going into the kitchens,
along with three ATO's and six
Phi Delts. Those shipments usual-
ly consist of perfume, powder, hair
pins, wigs, flowers, unmention-
ables, and cat food.
Just before the sheiks start call-
ing, the girls consume untold quan-
tities of cat food. An evening's
supply. Around 7, the sheiks start
pouring in. Literally. Some of the
girls are enthralled with their
dates. Others are appalled.
The girls at the ADPi ands CO
house all have cars. The babes at
the KD and DDD have scars from
lack of cars. They don't mind
though. All they want to do is
dance, eat, drink, dance and eat.
They are not worried about their
figures, as they are all taking
Saturday night at 11:30, the
girls all have to be in. They are

weary, they look awful, they feel
awful. Why? They're all out of cat

said Tex, as he waggled the

A gold-toothed smile played
