Varsity Party

Issues Seven -

Point Policy

Program Includes Open
Conventions And Better
Student Government

The campus' newest political
group-the Varsity Party-after
stating Tuesday that it had yet
to develop any policy for organ-
izing, yesterday issued a seven-
point statement of policy.
According to Al Schneider, par-
ty chairman of publicity and poli-
cy, the platform is as follows:
1. The Varsity Party is devoted
to a program of upholding the
traditions of the University of
Florida and building a better
campus-wide student government
in the interests of all the stu-
2. Party nominations? in open
conventions of qualified and ca-
pable candidates untainted by per-
sonal aspirations.
3. Returning student-supported
publications to the students.
4. An active Executive Council
devoted to student government
rather than student politics.
5. (a) A program of expansion
of varsity athletic sports; (b) re-
ductions in prices of date tickets
for athletic events; (c) more ade-
quate seating arrangements for
students at football games.
6. Expansion of the social and
cultural life on the University of
Florida campus to meet the needs
of a growing student body in a
great state university.
7. Cooperation with the Univer-
sity administration on legislative
matters for the welfare of the
students and growth of an ad-
vancing university.

Outlines Needs

Needs of the accounting depart-
ment of the University were told
to members ;of Beta Alpha Psi,
national honorary accounting so-
ciety, by Dr. James Lanham, head
of the accounting depIrunent, at
the meeting Tuesday in Florida
Dr. Lanham, in outlining the
needs of the accounting depart-
ment, divided necessary training
requirements into four fields: pri-
vate, public, governmental and
managerial accounting. The cur-
riculum must be enlarged to take
in all these various aspects, he
said. At the present time, train-
ing in managerial accounting is
almost non-existent. With the in-
troduction of new courses and the
revision of present courses offer-
ed, there will be an improvement
in the training offered at the Uni-
With the enlarged curriculum,
there must necessarily be more
adequate and better equipped
classrooms and offices. Slide pro-
jection equipment for each class-
room is essential if the instructor
and student are to get the best
use of classroom time. More em-
phasis on the overall uses of ac-
counting must be included in the
initial courses,, since most of the
students taking the initial courses
do not plan to take further ac-
"A less inclusive viewpoint,"
said Lanham, "would tend to
leave them in ignorance of the
many services accounting can per-
form for business. One of the
prime requirements of the univer-
sity is a machine laboratory. All
accountants must have a working
knowledge of machine possibili-
Dr. Lanham stated that "these
improvements are not expected to
come all at once, but beginning
next September with curriculum
changes, it is expected that the
University of Florida will in the
future have an accounting depart-
ment second to none in the United

ed president of Beta Alpha Psi,

Plan Adds

Another Step

Classroom Remodeling
Starts In Language Hall

.By Jack Shoemaker
The recent rehabilitation pi .
grarn, .which has been a ri. i..'.ng '
major proportions, added another
step in the start of remodeling
classrooms of the campus.
Rooms 201 and 202 of Language
Hall are the first to be started in t
the complete refurnishing with
soundproof ceilings, new fluores- t
cent lights, 'new floors, and new t
blackboards. As soon as these 1
rooms are finished, other rooms
will be renovated until all cam-
pus classrooms have been mod- I
ernized. e
Campus grounds management i
has been sowing all bare areas
with grass seed. It is the hope
of Business Manager George F. e
Baughman that all students t
will refrain from stepping on t
these plots in order that. the
grass may grow. t
Other improvements include
planting of shrubbery around all
temporary buildings and plant-
ing of evergreens along drill field
Baughman also stated that
plans are being developed for in-
stallation of an underground wat-
ering system for the drill field.
It is hoped that the whole cam-
pus will be in top shape for the
coming presidential inauguration;
but it must be understood that
the goal of the rehabilitation pro-
gram is a University campus of
which we can always be proud.

the Student Body, and Faculty will be hosts to these visitors. They will
be entertained in the hotels, private homes, and fraternity houses.
I am taking this opportunity to urge the Student Body to take an
active part in the ceremonies and other activities. Arrangements have
been made for every phase of student organized life to be represent-
ed in the academic procession. The student body will be represented
n the procession by student government organizations, social, honor-
try and professional fraternities and societies. The heads of these or-
ganizations have been informed about their part in the parade. Let me
emphasize again the importance of student participation, not only in
the procession, but in attendance at the Inauguration Ceremony in
the stadium Thursday morning, 10:00 a. m., March 4.
Let's make a good impression by being good hosts to the visitors
that are to be in our midst.

Nationwide publicity has stem-
med from Monday night's "protest
rally" in which a group of Univer-
sity of Florida students protested
the Southern Governors Regional
Council meeting to be held here on
March 4 on the grounds that "the
governors advocate an unjust and
inequitable system of education in
the South."
Meanwhile, here on the camp-
us, the student government, ad-
ministration and the student pro-
test group are all attempting to
place their views before the stu-
dent body in such a way as to
be understood in primary ob-
Last Friday, a university "pro-
test group" sent out an open letter
to individual students and organi-
zations explaining the stand that
the Southern Governors took at
their conference at Waukulla
Springs on February 7-9 by say-
"The governors, meeting in clos-
ed session, proposed, in contraven-
tion of the spirit of the Constitu-
tion, to found several regional col-
leges and thus to segregate these

The letter informed the students
that the governors were planning
to hold a regional education con-
ference here March 4 and Gerald
Gordon, who signed the memo-
graphed sheet, added: "We believe
that the students at this Univer-
sity will resent bitterly any at-
tempts to consummate such an ig-
norant and prejudiced plan at an
institution of higher learning ."
The group stated it was their
desire to formulate plans for
unification and expression for
resentment at a protest meeting.
"We strongly urge all groups to
be well represented at this
meeting," it stated.
And that night, most of Flor-
ida's student groups were repre-
sented, including leaders in stu-
dent government, presidents of
various organizations, and other
interested students who attended
the open session in order to pro-
hibit any demonstration on the
University campus because they
felt it would be a discourteous act
toward guests, and that the "no-
torious consequences" would do the

campus, the protest group, and
even the "cause" of the group more
harm than good.
The rally, led by Gordon, was
attended by some 31 students rep-
resenting groups favoring the pro-
test group and some 200 students
interested in upholding the Univer-
sity of Florida's hospitality.
After an hour and a half session,
which included talks by leaders of
both factions, the protest group
adjourned t o another campus
building and passed a resolution
which reads in part:
"That we, a group of students
do protest the meeting of
this group (governors) for the
following reasons: (1) they ad-
vocate an unjust and inequit-
able system of education in the
South; (2) they propose a plan
which is uneconomical, and re-

Bridge Tourneys

By Roger Long
It took the Phi Kappa Taus
some time to figure out a pet
nickname ofor their new house-
mother, Mrs. R. E. Reyes, b u t
they heard her sons call her 'Red'
and Red it has been since.
Mrs. Reyes has been coming to
Florida for a number of years
and came to live in Gainesville
when twoof her sons enrolled at
the University. It wasn't long
after that she was approached as
to whether she would consider
serving the Phi Kappa Tau fra-
ternity as its housemother. Ac-
cepting, she has served as house-
mother since last March.
Being interested in young peo-
ple for many years, she has de-
voted her time to several groups
of young people, including Boy
and Girl Scout work. Soon dis-
covering her talents, the frater-
nity placed in her capable and
willing hands purchasing of food
for the house and planning of
menus. She has been asked to as-
sist in the fraternity's funct':ns,
acting as a social front in repre-
senting the men of her fraternity.
Formerly from New York

man for the Democratic party in
Schenectady, she has had an in-

"ernors who stand as the deterrent force to the carrying out of the
'civil rights program? I, with many of my fellow students, have been
waiting for the moment when we could make our appeal to the stu-
dents of Florida, the citizens of the South, who believe in giving deserv-
ing students, returned war veterans regardless of race or color, every
possible advantage; who are more concerned with getting the most
from the taxpayer's dollar than in creating a hysteria over' party
allegiance or Southern pride.
We feel that any attempt to set up separate schools either on a
ktate or regional basis would result in a cut in appropriations for the
University of Florida, that there would be continued friction due to
"the attempt to by-pass the principle of the law that every state must
furnish higher, education for the residents within that given state.
The pride of the South must not be that of "white supremacy,"'
but of progress, progress that can only be achieved by developing our
human resource to the fullest through the sharing and sharing alike
of our facilities, not by depleting our educational funds with the crea-
tion of separate schools for the negro.

Sorry That We're Human
Dear Pen:
Newspaper reporting, everyone realizes, is necessarily subject to
the usual factor of human error, and the ALLIGATOR, I suppose, is
as free from it as most. I feel justified, however, is writing my first
"Letter to the Editor" concerning my part in the "protest meeting."
I spoke not for the legal fraternity of which I am president (and
not from Phi Alpha Delta, inasmuch as I am president of Phi Delta
t'hi) but as ani individual student. The account left the inference that
I spoke as president of my fraternity.
I stated, not as it was attributed to me, that such a protest as
was proposed would likely cause a counter-demonstration which would
deteriorate into an expression of racial hatred-not into "racial segre-

Suggests Political Column Of Facts
How about doing a service to that great number 'of students and
Faculty members who, like I, have the privilege of voting in the forth-
coming primary election, but don't have the time to attend the poli-
tical rallies, etc., to find out what Joe Doaks or-John Smith stands
My suggestion would run something like this: Take a particular
:candidate for nomination for each issue of the Alligator, starting as
r, soon as possible, and continuing till the time of the primary. Devote
several reporters and as much space as possible to the subject of this
one particular candidate and try all of the pros, and cons down in in-
telligible black and white. It wouldn't have to be and shouldn't be poli-
ticking, but just above-board details. No dirt but facts.

I have been a student at this great seat of learning for almost three

Bothering no one and being bothered by no one-and benefitting greatly
,from my mild and studious pursuits (at least, I hope I have!) .
But NOW-NOW I find myself going quite "batty" and so going at an
:alarming rate of speed-already my fingers are nubs, my friends are
:beginning to call me "Baldy". I can't eat or study!
So I am appealing to you before all is lost-

The Mystery Car


If You Know The Owner

Please Contact Alligator

Automobile Has Been Parked In Same Spot
Since Last September

By Jack Shoemaker
Many inquiries have arisen as
to the identity of the owner of
the 1936 black Plymouth sedan,
with a 1947 license, 11D-5223,
which is parked between the Uni-
versity Cafeteria and Sledd Dor-
It has been there since Septem-
ber, except for instances when the
ditch-diggers have had to move it
to get the right-of-way. The car
is in an extremely dilapidated
condition with three flat tires and
a possible broken front axle.. The
upholstery is badly cut up and
tools and motorcycle equipment
clutter up the back seat.
The trunk is almost off, be-
ing attached only by one hinge
and there are several broken
windows in the automobile. The
motor seems to be in fairly
good shape, except for a few
torn wires, but any good me-
chanic could do a decent re-
modeling job on the car for a
not-too-large expense.
This reporter was asked to find
the owner of the car. and tell him
to move it. Well, I went to one
of the campus policemen and ask-
ed him if he knew anything about
the car. He told me that he
"thought it belonged to a stu-
dent." Now, that gave me some-
thing to work on, but' it didn't
pan out, as I just couldn't afford
to contact all the students.
Then I thought about the tax
collector down at the court house

in Gainesville. Perhaps he could
help me. Fortunately, he could
and did. He told me that the car
belonged to a P. Guy Crews, Jack-
sonville, Fla. Next, I called up the
registrar's office and asked for in-
formation of this Mr. Crews. I
was told that there was a Mr.
Marvin Crews from Jacksonville
registered here at the University.
Maybe he could help me. After
missing him a number of times,
I finally got in contact, with him.
Then he told me the story.
The car belonged to his fa-
ther who sold it to him. He in
turn, because he couldn't afford
the expense of keeping a car
here at school, sold it to a Hun-
garian student,, name unknown,
who now owns the car.
No one knows the whereabouts
of this student, who probably has
left the University-and no one
knows just what he intends doing
with the car.
University of Florida President
J. Hillis Miller has asked Attor-
ney General Tom Watson for a
ruling on whether sororities may
build privately financed houses on

ceived such a break that has made it one of the doormats
of the Southern Conference when they drew the Kentucky
Wildcats in their first .(maybe only) game of the tourney
The Wildcats who have one more basketball game in the
Southeastern loop than the law allows will be heavy fa-
vorites to win once again the title. Ralph Beard, Alex
Groza and Wah Wah Jones have made t.le boys from the
Blue Grass State one of the top fives in the nation.
Many people wonder why the Kentucky team is al-
ways near the top in basketball. One of the big reasons is
they have, very likely, the best informed coach in the
game. Adolph Rupp has long been a-top flight coach and
scout. That seems to be his strong point, being able to'spot
talent in its infancy. He is a strong supporter of defensive
basketball in this high scoring age. It is rumored that re-
cently in one of their games Rupp came storming into the
dressing room at half time and asked who was guarding
number 14 of the opposing team. One fellow meekly ad-
mitted that he was the man. Rupp gave him a real lecture
on guarding. This number 14 had scored all of the oppos-
ing team's points. The score stood Kentucky 40, opponents

clashed yesterday in a game whicl

Bracket Two
In bracket two the Avondale:

victory over Presbyterian while(

two safeties. Baptist Union, 12-i
winner over the Gator Club in a
slugfest which featured four-base

McCart of the Gator Club, was
slated to encounter Presbyterian
yesterday in its second outing.
Tarpon Club spurted to the role
of early favorite in the third
grouping with a 6-2 win over CLO,
aided by an assist from the losing
team's moundsman. Carcia, on the
slab for OLO, issued six untimiely

culminated in Tarpon tallies.

Two potentially powerful dia-

hitters back to- the bench after
burning over a third strike in his
five inning stint. In addition, Zim-

SEC Meet

Florida's basketball te a m

morrow night in a return clash
with Georgia Tech here. Tech de-
feated the Gators in Atlanta ear-
lier in the season 65-42.
The Gators, fresh from a77-59
win from the Jacksonville Navy
team Wednesday night, will be
out to avenge the early season'
loss to Tech. Harry Hamilton, Ga-
tor forward, and center Hans
Taenzler" will probably lead the
Florida scoring. These two men
are leading the individual Gator
scoring parade and led the scoring
against Jax Navy. Hamilton hit
for 27 points and Taenzler scored
eleven goals for 22 points.
Julian Miller, third ranking in-
dividual scorer from a guard po-
sition will be a thorn in the Yel-
low Jacket defense and maintain
a constant scoring threat. Bill
Atkinson is back in top form and
should give the Gator cause plen-
ty of help.
Nolan Stars
Jim Nolan, six foot eight inch
Tech center, will lead the invad-
ers. Nolan scored 30 points
against Kentucky Saturday night
and at the same time held Alex
Groza, Wildcat center, to two
points. Nolan scored 17 points
against the Gators in Atlanta.
Another Jacket high scorer is
freshman forward Colin Ander-
son who racked in 16 points in the
previous game against Florida.
Melvin Dold,.a six foot two inch,
guard will be the third main scor-
ing threat in the Tech attack. He
scored 13 points .in the previous

Symphony Orch,

Hard Working,

Under Publicized
Group Has Won Acclaim
In Many Cities; Five
More Trips Planned

By 4obin Brown
The Symphony Orchestra of the
University of Florida is one of the
hardest working and least pub-
licized organizations on the cam-
pus. The orchestra, under the ca-
pable direction of DeWitt Brown,
is said by some to 'rank with the
best of its kind in the country.
In the past the group has trav-
eled to many cities and has met
with high acclaim in all. Among
those cities are Jacksonville, Tal-
lahassee, Valdosta, Ga., Lake City,
Qcala, Mt. Dora and Leesburg.
Trips planned for the coming se-
mester include Palatka, Lake,
City, Tallahassee, Leesburg and
Mt. Dora. In addition to these
out of town appearances, Brown
says that at least two concerts
will be given here on the campus
sometime in the coming spring.
During the past two months,
the orchestra has had no definite
meeting place in which to re-
hearse. The majority of rehearsals
have been in the form of indi-
vidual and sectional practices at
Brown's home.
No academic credit is given for
participation in the orchestra. At
present it is simply a student or-
ganizatioh. There are a number
of capable musicians on the cam-
pus who are taking no part in the
orchestra or any of its activities
simply because the school gives
no credit for it.
Having no school of music as
yet on the campus, the orchestra
has had to cater to people who
play instruments as a hobby and
not as a life's work. This situa-
tion should be improved in March
when Alva A. Beecher will arrive
on the campus to start organiza-
tion of a college of music here at
the University. Academic credit
probably will be given for partici-
pation in musical organizations
which are approved by the new
According to Brown, the Uni-
versity of Florida should, in the
next few years, have one of the
best schools of music in the na-

he'd had with bands before
coming to the University, Lang
told of his playing with a 16
piece V-5 Navy band at the
University of South Carolina.
"I played with this service
group for 10 months," relates, Ed,
"and during that time we played
for fraternity dances, a Navy
commissioning ball and many
other social events."
In addition toplaying for sev-
eral dances at the campus recre-
ation hall, and for fraternity
dances, the band recently journ-
eyed to Camp Blanding Officers'
club where they played for a
dance given by the Starke Lions
The band now has dates to
play for Kappa Alpha Plantation
Ball, Sigma Chi Sweetheart dance
and Delta Tau Delta Raiinbow
Ball within the near future.

By Al Hutchinson
There is at least one in every
class-an eager beaver, that is.
Some can be spotted right off,
while others are more subtle about
thbir "beaver" activities.
jlager beavers can be placed in
two general categories. The first
category contains the obnoxious,
self-satisfied, steamroller variety.
You know the kind I mean, the
giy who always asks the prof
what the next day's assignment is
and who pounds the prof with
questions all through class? In
addition to questions, this "beaver"
has an inexhaustible supply of
arguments pro and con about any
question, plus experiences pertain-
ing to the subject in question
which he will relate at the drop of
a pencil.
In a large university there are
certain schools and colleges
which tend to attract eager
beavers more than others. For
the sake of illustration, there is
a college at the University of
Florida where a majority of the
students enrolled can be seen
carrying brief cases, wearing
coats and ties to class, smoking
pipes or cigars, wearing hats,
and affecting a characteristic air
of the most profound knowledge
of just about any subject which
one can mention, but their spec-

PpM'.', THl~IS

VEkZ /

laity is any subject of a legal
nature. In their classes they
have a most annoying habit,
when they are displeased, of
shuffling their feet.
The second category contains
the less annoying, but just as
deadly beaver. The insidious, silent
character who stays after class to
chat with the professor about the
course. The vernacular has another
name for this, but we won't Inen-
tion it. This guy laughs at the in-
structor's jokes, offers him cigar-
ettes, turns the spotlight on some
poor devil who has not done the
assignment by either laughing out
loud at him or glaring and shaking
his head and glancing to see if the
prof is noticing him. This joker
always tries to talk himself into a
better grade when he finds out
the results of a quiz or exam.
Everyone who engaged in the re-
cent world conflict remembers only
too well the guy everybody liked,
until he got his first stripe, and
the stupid but likeable ensign or
second lieutenant who, when he
got his bars changed from gold to
silver, suddenly became the para-
gon of regulation and discipline?
The troops had several choice and
descriptive words for this too,
which we wen't mention here.

Colleges Assembly Lines ?
With 2,338,226 college students today in AmericE
and an expected total of 3,000,000 by 1960, Dr. C. V
Thomas, former president of Fenn College has attribute
the growth in prospective enrollments not so much to th
veteran influence but to a trend or social pattern, in which
"college going" is becoming contagious.
We feel also that Dr. Henry M. Wriston, president o
Brown University, was correct in his statement, and pu
it before you now to tie in the above trend in education:
"Thousands of students now attend college not so mucl
to gain an education as to obtain degrees, which will serv
as 'passes' to desirable positions and advancement afte
graduation. Such a condition is a menace to our democrat
way of life. It threatens real education, since it tends t
convert colleges into assembly lines for the production o
degrees, instead of institutions where minds are enlarged
and personalities developed."

All For The Red Cross
"Ugly Man Contest" carries many connotations but i
is doubtful if anyone's feelings will be hurt because of thiE
coming annual election by the student body. It's a joke. an
to accomplish the joke it's a penny a vote with proceeds t(
the Red Cross. Last year's contest raised $600 and this onE
probably will realize much more.
That's the light side of the Red Cross drive which
begins Monday. It is up to each student and faculty mem-
ber to contribute more than just the cost of a few votes for
this most worthy project.

S Letters To The Editor
Letters to the Editor, in order to be published, must be limited to
not more than 250 words and must be signed. No anonymous letters
will be printed.

Won't Print This Letter
Dear Mr. Gaines:
Perhaps the Alligator would print this letter. Perhaps they
wouldn't. My guess is that they wouldn't-dare.
Mr. Gaines, you are a Big Man! A bigger man, perhaps, than you
realize. You see, Mr. Gaines, you are not only the editor-in-chief of a
newspaper, but editor-in-chief of THE newspaper-the ONLY official
newspaper of the University of Florida. In other words, you have the
power to say just what you wish through the Alligator without fear
of contradiction.
To take advantage of your power might be considered unethical
by some. "Unethical" is hardly the word! Carried over a national scope,
policies such as yours are deadly! It is on just such methods as yours
that the propaganda agencies of a dictatorship are based.
On the front page of the Tuesday edition of the Alligator you
took full advantage of your power. You used the official voice of the
student body to expound your own views on one of our campus politi-
cal parties!
Mr. Gaines, you won't answer this. You can't. You have no an-
Finally, this letter is in no way connected with any political or-
ganization. It is the opinion of one student, a veteran who has only too
recently come back from a Big Fight started by Big Men with Big
A Student
EDITOR'S NOTE: The letter IS printed, although it has been the
policy not to print an anonymous letter. We have yet to fail to print a
letter, provided it was under 250 words, on time and could be cut to
250 words. But since this letter has already been published, we feel
we can print it here.
I .CAN answer you, but before I offer you the answer, I would
like to ask a few questions. How in the world did you print all the
thousands of copies and get them in so many places by yourself? I
supose you lost a lot of sleep, more than I will lose. If you did hire
leg men, please consider this as an application, since I could help you
get the letter to me and still make some money to boost my veteran's
pay, which isn't enough for me to print so many letters.
Too I'm so glad that you made it clear, that there was no con-
nection with any political party, for you. certainly hurt the third
party this way.
This paper, too, has been fighting against all types of odds for
student's voice: in government, and not a group dictating the actions
of the entire campus. That editorial was presented in a constructive
way to keep out a dictatorship of a few men wno are out for personal
gains, and to arouse more individual students to be more responsible
for government. How could you say that this article was not meant
for the good of each'individual?
Ever since I took over the paper last summer, I have continuous-
ly hit upon this same idea, and you have not said a word. Could it be
the time element now? Last Summer I said on June 27 that "we will
dare say that most of the fights between the parties have been more
to get their men into office than their knowing what they are getting
them into office for. We will not condemn anyone for wanting to get
into office. But we would like to mention that the political groups on
this campus work more to get CONTROL OF THE STUDENTS than
to gain office and be leaders of the CONTROLLING students..
That is exactly what I said Wednesday, in another way, attempt-
ing to stifle any dictatorship which you claim that I'm interested in.
I did not expound my views about the third party, for their policies
were not released. I did have a right, for the good of the campus, to
let the student body know that we want a government by the stu-
dents, like it is TODAY.
We feel that this movement will come out attempting to get con-
trol of publications by putting the ALLIGATOR back into politics.
You see, the ALLIGATOR editorship is not now a political football,
but this new movement would want it back before the students in that
way. They will probably come out for better student government. Can
you see how when they organized without any policy?
I would like for you to point out any place in my article where it
was not for the good of the student body.
For the student government and student body, I want to ask.you
to come to see me and answer the above questions. If you don't, then
who is the one willing to meet half-way?

Decries Lights Burning
Dear Pen:
Since we, the students, are asked to conserve electricity, why in
thunder do the street lights in front of Science, Chemistry, and Agri-
culture buildings burn night and day ?
F. Clyde Stevens, Jr.

Reader Says Alligator Story

Is Of Monumental Importance
Dear Pen,
The ALLIGATOR brought out something that is of monumental
importance to every non-fraternity student here a new political party
composed of three-fourths of all fraternity men and a few token inde-

pendent politicians.
The first of two disastrous situations might be the death of stu-
dent government. This would be brought about because at the present
time this party has such a tremendous fraternity bloc vote that any
opposition by the few remaining fraternities is mere farce. These
could muster only 600 bloc votes compared to 1700 votes of the new
party. A one party system which is just another way of saying that
student government by the student is dead.
The second situation will result when remaining fraternities join
the new party after realizing the hopelessness of opposition. This will
align them against the non-fraternity men, which would result in a
complete control by the fraternities or a final awakening by the inde-
pendent voters and complete control by them.
The new party leaders seen to be counting on the continued
lethargy of non-frat votes and the continued ignorance of the non-frat
voter of the fact that the complete control of this university has been
given to the students through their student government. Actually, the
majority of students have had little chance of participating in the
running of government. Student government posts have been held by
so-called career politicians who desire these posts merely for the honor
which they acquire.
It seems that it is past time for the average student to realize
that he must take a part in student government. If the average stu-
dent doesn't want to take part then let school officials take over and at
least appoint competent and deserving students who will fullfill the
job requirements and not merely hold office for the honors.
Vincent Faulk




I wish I could sit opposite y
," right now, stare you in the ey
ic and talk. But there are many
ill you, and one of me, and it's aft
midnight. You know, when it's l1
the clack of a typewriter is a lor
some sound.
But I've written a lot late
night. I'm ever grateful for t
a, column inches this type has fill
V. in the past year. Because of it I'
d done a lot of thinking about G
and other things. Sometimes
e imagine I'm doing my bit to ma]
h the world a better place. And wh,
a column is half decent, I'm a
)f ways a bit embarrassed over cor
It pliments. So many people could
a better job than I.
I have some newspaper clipping
h beside me. They're about Henr
e Noel, the Harvard graduate wh
r renounced his United States cit
c zenship. He wants to be a citizen
of the world. I also have a wonde:
0 ful sounding quotation from ol
f Tom Paine, and from it all I wa
d going to draw a fine moral for th:
week's column.
That was before I attended
meeting tonight.
But before I go any further:
kc 'in mind this statement by
t Florida professor. Reason, he sail
s cannot je applied to ci.ler rac
d or religion.
The meeting held in Florid
0 Union was to determine what typ
e of protest should be display
against the meeting of Souther.
Governors in Gainesville on Marc:
5-6. You've heard all the hark an
cry raised over President Truman'
r civil rights program. The Gover
nors oppose parts of that program.
And some of your classmate
oppose the stand of the Governors
This meeting was not held t'
determine if there should be
protest. It took place to deter
mine WHAT protest to make. Tha
was significant to me. Somebod:
had already made up their mind
It would be unfair to say tha
someone else had influenced them
Many of your campus leaders
were there-mainly to try to avoid
a demonstration, of course. I sa
on the front row and shifted
book around in my hands. Thi
name of it was A Study of History
written by an intellectual, Arnolc
Toynbee. It's a complete history
from the earliest civilization in
Crete to Mussolini and his Ethio-
plan rape.
I grinned to myself when
thought of how many such meet-
ings the history in that book hac
I hope it doesn't sound trite tc
say that these classmates of ours
were sincere. They were. You
know, there's something about an
inspired man you admire. There is
a danger, however. An atheist I
know once said that your religion
is what you value most. That
makes my religion a little five-foot
girl. Lott of people worship money.
Some prefer ethics or convictions.
And they all can be carried too far.
The meeting was well attended.
There was clapping and booing and
some brief, well placed speaking.
And while it was all going on, I
wrote on a sheet of paper the
\words "Civil Rights" and followed
them with a question mark. And
under that I placed the words
"Evolution" and "Bloodshed."
Evolution is a slow development.
It took millions of years for the
first bit of protoplasm to develop
into a being with two legs. It took
a long time for living flesh to have
the audacity to try and change na-
ture-try to change evolution. And
I'm not so sure that the living
flesh can successfully do it.
But' when the change is tried,
that's where the bloodshed comes
in. You know that.
I've preached for brotherhood of
man in this column. I continue to
do so. But I do not expect to ac-
complish miracles. I keep in mind
that only 21 true civilizations have
existed in the past'6,000 years. At
that rate, man can have 1,743
million civilizations before the
earth becomes uninhabitable. With
all those trys lying ahead, some-
day man is bound to get the right
combination. The good world shall
be achieved. I hope to contribute
my share.
I'm not going to say the demon-
stration agitators are wrong. No
man can tell anyone that. We can
only say that we disagree. We do
not actually know what is true or
false. But I can disagree, and that
I do.
You see, I tried to use reason.
Perhaps I simply rationalized. But
I hope you don't think I've pros-
tituted this white space. I hope
this column sounds like I mean it.
Because I do.

As students all over the nation
returned to their schools for a sec-
ond semester of book-larnin' they
found some new wrinkles in the
old alma mater.
Ohio State started a course for
co-eds in billiards. About 90 wom-
en signed up for the classes. The
class meets twice weekly but the
coeds show up frequently after
class-to study.
A new system of reporting
grades to students has been insti-
tuted at Vanderbilt. Instead of re-
port cards being sent out each
term, brown books, in which each
terms grades are entered, have
been put into use. These brown
books are used by the students'
advisers at registration in plan-
ning their courses and upon grad-
uation may be retained by the
student as a complete record of
work at Vanderbilt.
At Michigan University, one of
the local bookstores, overwhelmed
by orders for a certain book, re-

Building. After three years the
Union board purchased a new coat

A modern version of a well
known Tom Sawyer story was en-
acted on the South Carolina cam-
pus last week. A grounds-keeper
was sweeping the campus with a
machine which works on the prin-
ciple of a lawn-mower. Four rotat-
ing brushes throw the leaves back
into a bag on the back as the ma-
chine is pushed along.
A curious student walked up and
watched it operate for a few
minutes. Then he couldn't stand it
no longer.
"Here, Unc, let me see that for a
second," he said.
The man grinned and handed it







If you happen to see a bunch
of guys walking around trying to
start a demonstration, just ignore
them. If they won't be ignored,
then pull out yore shooting' irons
and shoot 'em down like dawgs!
No doubt every one has heard
about the student protest that is
going to be held at the gover-
nors' conference on March 4. I
don't know if these guys are just
plain ignorant or whether or not
they are hard-up for some public-
ity-any publicity, regardless of
whom it hurts. What do they care
whether or not Dr. Miller's inaug-
uration is ruined? What do they
care whether or not such a crude
demonstration at the University
of Florida will be smeared all
over the pages of Life Magazine,
not to mention every newspaper in
the country? What dlo they care
how much they degrade the stan-
dards of the student body at this
University? There's only one ans-
wer. They don't give a continent-
However, far be it from me to
call anyone a commie. People
have called me a commie. How
can they do that? I've got six
bucks of my very own money in
the bank. And I own it complete-
ly. It's mine. Besides, just be-
cause these guys Walk around with
a definite port list, doesn't mean
they're commies, does it?
r I'll be blunt. I don't like com-

don't like to see radical demon-
f stations spreading bad words

Swich. Yeah. They couldn't make
up their minds whether to eat it
or give it to 'the Party for con-
sumption. After all, the Party's

at the crumbs in it.
Not that I am against the Com-
munist Party. I just think we
ought to shoot 'em all down like
The boys seem to have the
idea that nothing can stop their
demonstration. Wonder if there
are any old unused Atomic bombs
around somewhere?
Personally, I think the gover-
nors will take one look at that
so called "demonstration" and say,
"I thought Gainesville had ex-
terminated all the rats in town."
Evidentally they ran out of red

Now. For something else. I hear
that there are some guys around
campus that got teed off because
they didn't get any big political
plumb in the last party officer
election. So, they form another
party. This one's called "The Var-
sity Party." I think it ought to
be called the "Farceity Party."
Looks like student interest and
student government is taking a
back seat to personal gain. If a
guy isn't elccad chairmen of a
party, or isn't nominated for a big
office, he picks up his blocks and
goes home to form another party.
So forms the Varsity Party. When
a parasite runs out of food, he
looks for more suckers. I guess
some people think the students
will still be suckers.
Looks to me like what is finally
going to happen is the abolish-
ment of student government and
the creation of a Gestapo. Which

ness. I am unbiased.

One of the waitresses giggled. _
The crowd hung on to his every

from the crotches of the local cot.

Big Tex galloped onward, ever
