Dr. Charles R. Foster, director of
graduate studies,, of the College
of Education, have returend to
Gainesville after attending ses-
sions of several national educa-
tional associations in Atlantic

The main accomplishment at
the educational sessions was
the merging of three leading or-
ganizations of teachers colleges
into one, which is to be called
the American Association of
Colleges for Teacher Educa-

be the only accrediting agency

the teaching profession, the new
organization's first step will be to

call "appalling," spokesmen for
the educational profession pointed
out that 450,000 of the 875,000
teachers in the U. S. do not have
a college degree, and recommend
that no candidate be licensed to

years of college training.

Topic Of Speech
At AIA Meeting
Sydney Carter, Instructor of ar-
chitecture at the University of
Florida, in speaking of trends in,
housing technique and education
to members and student associ-
ates of the Florida North Chap-
ter AIA meeting, Monday night,
stressed the need for a more lib-
eral education in architectural
"Prior to the war," Carter stat-
ed, "architectural training was
limited to the narrow confines of
structural and 'aesthetic technolo-
gy. Wartime experience in hous-
ing has presented a new chal-
lenge to the architectural schools.
That challeneg is to train the stu-
dent to mee the demands of mass
migration by providing mass
housing This presents many
problems, not only for the student
in learning new concepts, but for
the school in providing the neces-
sary subjects of instructionn"
Problems connected with hous-
ing, with which the student
should be made aware are, ac-
cording to Carter, social, econ-
omicic, political or ,governmental,
and geographical or physical. In
referring to the social problem,
Carter stated, "The architectural
school has the responsibility of
instilling a social philosophy of
architecture and planning within
the student if the student
thinks of housing in terms of
people, as well as mortar and
bricks, 'the school will have suc-
ceeded in its pJ.rpose and will
have taken a long step in the sol-
ution of the housing problem
merely by a change of attitudes.
If the student fails to develop
some sort of social philosophy of
housing, the school has failed in
its responsibility to the student
and to the community." #
Trends in housing legislation
was the subject of a talk given
by Jefferson M. Hamilton, associ-
ate professor of architecture. Fu-
ture long-range housing legisla-
tion can only be speculative, ac-
cording to Hamilton.

BIG JAMBOREE PLANNED
Spring Frolics Annual Weekend
Announced For May 7-8 By IFC
Big-Name Bands Are Under Consideration;
IFC Declines to Merge With Carnival Weekend
By Marty Lubov
spring Frolics, one of dato r-
land's greatest social week-ends,
has been slated for May 7 and 8,
Bill Turnbull, president of the In-
- Fi terrmty "Conference an-
nounced this week. Again star-
ring one of the nation's top name
bands, the gala jamboree will be
a fraternity affair.
With Spring Carnival tentative-
ly set for April 23 and all other
dates in April having conflicting
events, May 7 was chosen as the
only alternative. A proposal to
combine Spring Frolics and t h e
Carnival week-end was voted
down by IFC.
Some of the country's top
swing orchestras have been
contacted. Among those under
consideration are Charlie Spi-
vakc, Vauglhn Monroe, Tony Pas-
tor and Johnny Long.
As in past Frolics, it has been
emphasized that it would be im-
possible for others than fraterni-
ty members to attend the affair.
Only half of the fraternities will
attend each night's dances.
Rivaling only Fall Frolics in
the Florida social calendar, this
will be the IFC's third post-war
Spring Frolics. Previous week-
ends have featured Harry James
and Sonny Dunham, Jimmy Dor-
sey and Les Brown.

By Julian Clarkson
JIM GRIFFIN. IS the first University of Florida stu-
dent to qualify for Sigma Delta Psi, national honorary ath-
letic fraternity, according to an announcement released by
the Intramural Department, which is sponsoring the re-
activation of the society on this campus. Griffin began
work on the tests along with a small group of aspirants
several weeks ago and quickly breezed past every ob-
stacle to win the distinction of being the first "charter
member" of the post-war chapter here.
No one else has successfully met all requirements as
yet, partly due to the fact that a number of the better all-
around athletes on campus are out for some varsity sport
at present. When more men do qualify, Florida's first
Sigma Delta Psi chapter since about'1938 will become ac-
Griffin, a varsity track letterman, substituted his
letter for one of the 13 events which candidates must excel
in, and then went to work on the other 12 phases of the
test. His most outstanding performance, came in the 120-
yd. low hurdle event. The lanky athlete topped the timbers
in 14 seconds flat, only 3/10 of a second off the Intramural
record by Gene Williams. Toughest test for Griffin was
the 250 ft. baseball throw, a good heave in anybody's
back yard. After several tries he got off a 255 ft. toss to
conquer that category.
Any man who meets the requirements for Sigma
Delta Psi has well earned the. title of a "versatile" athlete.
WHILE THUMBING THROUGH results of last
week's Independent League softball games, we ran across
another perfect 'pitching performance that escaped our
notice last week. It has already been mentioned here that

get in on the three-way tie in the first bracket.
Rogers' mound performance was more remarkable
than the Saint twirlers in another respect also. Neet faced
21 batters in his no-hitter while Rogers was up against
only 16 men,'one more than minimum possibility for the

quite a few other athletes who were engrossed in the ac-

the Independent softball tourney is--Neet of the Saints,
Rogers of the PIell Cats, Whittle of the Avondales, Hend-
ricks of the All Stars, and Zimmerman of Wesley all have
staunch supporters. Blue League fans point out that
the Pi Lams, picked at the start of the season as topheavy
favorites in that circuit, have only been in first place once
thus far in the race, and their tenure then was very brief.
. Yesterday's volleyball bout between the SAEs and
PDTs was to determine whether or not there will be a
three-way tie in one bracket of the Orange League tour-

Gators In Opener

Adolph Rupp's rampaging Ken-

their fifth consecutive SEC title
last weekend by overcoming
Georgia Tech in the final round to
continue their lengthy domination
of the conference cage meet. In-

victims were Florida's Gators, who
went down to an overwhelming
87-31 defeat in the first round.

Relays Revive Old Memory
Of Beard's Record Race
Coach Percy Beard Set High Hurdle Record
In Lincoln, Neb., In 1931 For Auburn
By Joe Sherman
When the gun barks for the start of the 120-yard high
hurdles at the University of Florida Relays here on March
27th, a glow of memories will flow through the man run-
ning the show.
He'll be standing a bit behind the track-side throng of
judges and contestants and his quiet features will change
very little but his six feet four
inches will give him a good view
of the race and deep within him
will be a vivid picture of a day in
Lincoln, Neb., 16 years ago.
For on that day the University
of Florida's Track Coach Percy-----.
Beard, then an Auburn athlete, set
a new world record of 14.2 seconds
in the 120-yard high hurdles. i.
The mark Beard hung up that

vividly than any other of his run-

about it is one of those blood-and-
So very quietly and deliberately
that you wonder how he ever per-

tence-flecked 120 yards in world-

think setting a world record is
something to whisper about by
grinning and saying:
"Well, there isn't much to say
about it. It wasn't a very good
day but the track was in fine
shape and the only difference in
the way I ran that day and every
other day was just a little faster."
Yeah, that's right, just a little
faster enough to surpass every-
thing man had done before that
Percy, who loves a track event
more than his wife loves an an-
tique, will mother the 15 events of
the fifth annual Florida Relays
from the first gun to the last tick
of the stopwatch, but it will be the
high hurdles that really kindle a
light in his eye and bring an extra
thump to his heart.

tle "Red Brick," according to Bill
Harlan, captain of the acquatic
This little brick first came into
limelight back in March, 1939,
when the Florida swimmers were
in the midst of one of their tough-
est meets. It seems that no one
knows just exactly where the
brick came from, but they did
come through and win that par-
ticular m t 38-37.
Chick Acosi, was captain of
the Gator swimmers then and he
left these words with each in-
coming captain to use when the
question of the brick was brought
up. '5A brick sinks and we are
out to sink all of our opponents,"
All Florida swimmers seem to
feel a magic figure with them as
they plow through the water when
the little red brick is on the pool

Beginning with a Christmas greeting and ending with
a prayer, a letter has been received by the University from
Poona, India, urging world peace through education.
The letter, which was written by D. V. Gokhale, a
professor of history at Poona, directs at the United States
a plea "to help in driving out want throughout the world"
Gokhale directly puts his plea for world peace to Florida
students in the following words, "we wish to students of
the University every success in their studies and hope that
they will try to know something of all the parts of the
world and India for building a New World Order and

The Way To Register
The student registration march into Gainesville to-

a good one. The principle is that University students, with
their homes for all practical purposes in Alachua County,
will not be stalled off by the County Commission, the su-
pervisor of registration or anyone else whose duty it is to
handle details connected with voting.
The County Commission deferred action on putting
books out in the precincts until shortly before the dead-
line for bringing them back. The supervisor of registration
further delayed. March 2 was the deadline and now the
only way to be registered is go into town and accomplish

FRESH EGGS AS YOU LIKE THEM
420 North Ninth Street
By Gerald Clarke
Every once in
a while when a
has nothing else
to do, he criti-
taste, which is a
thing to do. Ev-
that concert au-
Sdiences have no-
toriously bad taste. Maybe so;
maybe not but during the past
week I've seen a lot of evidence
to prove it's not.
It all started Tuesday night in
Jacksonville with a concert by the
Baltimore Symphony Under the
dynamic Scotsman, Regin a 1 d
.tewart. From the opening of the
program it was evident that the
city of white-washed steps h ad
produced a top-flight musical
group. The audience enthusiastic-
ally applauded Rimsky-Korsa-
kov's "Russian Easter Overture,"
an appealing, but structurally
weak piece of music. Then th e
trial of public taste came, a very
solid modern work by Paul Hind-
emith, his "Symphony in E Flat,"
which abounds in complex and
Now, it is a matter of fact that
not much modern symphonic mu-
sic is played in Jacksonville by
anyone. It just isn't done because
taste is supposed to be provencial
there. Well it didn't show up so
much Tuesday night. Although
applause was a little thin, it was
sustained-sustainead ny a large
and enthusiastic portion of the
audience which recognized the
musical validity of a very well-
constructed piece of music.
Thursday night's Gladys 'Swar-
thout audience showed that it
knew what it was applauding and
what it did not want to applaud.
As people rustled programs and
shifted in their seats, I thought I
could feel a prevailing resentment
toward the o v e r sentimental,
cloying Liszt numbers, even
though it was excellently played
by Gibner King, who, in my opin-
ion, was the best accompanist of
the season. His Bach was espec-
ially well received.
Again in the auditorium: Fri-
day evening's audience gave ap-
plause to cellist Joseph Schuster
just where it should have been
placed after the Beethoven
"Sonata in A Major," probably
because It was well-written music
and because of the accompani-
ment Edward Mattos, who seem-
ed to me to be at least the second
best pianist to appear here this
seaso.. later, applause was es-
pecially warm for Bloch's "Ni-
gun" from "Bael Shem" and Cho-
pin etude, both of which were
played extremely well quite a
lot better in fact, than most of
Finally and the most grati-
fying display of public good taste
was by the enraptured Bach Fes-
tival audience in KnoWles Chapel
at Rollins College in Winter Park.
Saturday morning an' audience,
which came from 14 different
Florida colleges, sat fr an hour
and 45 minutes, I darebay, trans-
fixed by the magnifica~ce of the
"B Minor Mass." It was hearten-
ing to someone who at times be-
comes slightly critical of public

You Can't Win
Proposed Student Body Law
In view of the fact that great sums of money are being spent-
right now by the State and University of Florida to refinish old build-
ings, building new ones, and to renew the campus grounds, it seems
proper that we the Student Body and Student Government should do
all in our power to protect these improvements. To this end, an addi-
tion to the Election Law is respectfully proposed:
To be known as Section Seven (7).
7. Posting and clean-up of election campaign materials by all
political parties and candidates shall be regulated as follows:
(a) No campaign materials shall be attached to any interior sur-
face of any campus building except upon the official bulletin board (s)
of these buildings or upon such devices specificly provided and design-
ated for these materials by the University and the Student Govern-
ment. Further, the use of nails, paints, or any other damaging instru-
ment or material upon building exteriors, staturary, walls, side-walks,
and living trees is prohibited.
(b) Each political party and each candidate shall 'effect a clean-up
of respective campaign materials in the polling areas on election day
immediately after the polls are closed and a campus wide clean-up of
posted materials within one week after the day of election.
(c) As surety that the intent of paragraphs 7 (a) and (b) shall be
accomplished, each candidate shall pay a deposit of two dollars
($2.00) and each political party shall pay a deposit amounting to one
tenth (1/10) of party nomination fees collected by it to the Secretary-
Treasurer of the Student Body exactly seven days (7) prior to the
election day. These deposits shall be refunded in full if the Secretary
of Interior finds that the above intent has been carried out satisfac-
torily, but if not, he shall have employed such labor as necessary to
achieve the intent. The cost of which shall be deducted from the de-
posits and the balance refunded pro rata.
To insure the constitutionality of the above proposed addition, Sec-
tion 4 (b) shall be amended to read in its opening sentence:
"No candidate shall expend, not including qualifying'fees, clean-up
deposit, or above mention party fees .. .
Letters To The Editor
Wants Election Time Extended
Last year I recall trying desperately to get to the polls to vote
but the crowds caused my vote to be uncast. I believe that many more
students would and could cast their ballots in the forthcoming elec-
tions if the time were extended to cover two or three days. Do you
think the idea worthy of one of your editorials on the subject? I really
do think that it would be a good thing.

Oughta See Us In A Flour Sack
I would like to know why the girls are allowed to wear slinkly-
looking bathing suits in the pool while we poor boys have to wear
something that looks like a dern flour sack.' I went swimming today
and a couple of beauties came out in suits that were out of this
world. If this is to continue, why can't we wear our own suits? Give
us some satisfaction.

.Los Picaros Movies Lauded
Tonight another step was taken in the interest of arousing a
closer understanding between us and our friends south of the border.
The first in a series of movies about the countries of Latin Ameri-
ca was given by Los Picaros, the honorary Spanish fraternity. The
membership of this organization is composed largely of students from
South and Central America. These students are interested in our
having a better knowledge of their home countries.
Florida being the gateway to South and Central America, it is of
increasing importance that we have a better understanding of the
customs, people, and countries of the South. These imported students
are offering us a chance. They want to have a part in the activities
here and have worked hard to bring us these movies.
I found this first set of three movies not only educational, but
interesting as well.
Let's make our Latin American students feel that they are
ERITOR'S NOTE: The ALLIGATOR this week received quite a
few letters, either favoring Elgin White or Marty Lubov in somewhat
straight-forward terms, after this paper's columnists disagreed in their
opinions. It is obvious that the students feel strongly on this subject.
We printed a letter last week in answer to Morton Lucoff's letter
backing Lubov. Mr. Lucoff retaliated this week, but since it Is begin-
ning to boil down to that of "answering each other," this paper feels
it has gone too far in print, but if any of the writers would like to
get together, this paper will furnish the information.............
Too, we received a letter concerning the University eafeterla,
which was directed more to Mr. Long, manager, that we are turning
over to him for an answer.

THURSDAY, March 4-The dry
county of Alachua gave out-of-
state visitors a completely wet
welcome with a series of torren-
tial rains that equalled any weath-
er we had had in weeks. Three
presidents of Southern Negro col-
leges sat with the regional council
during its closed session during
the afternoon, at which Caldwell
was the only governor. All the
other governors messaged their
"regrets." Their decision appar-
ently stemmed from the state of
national politics resulting from
the furore over civil rights .
Robert R. Guthrie, president and
principal owner of the Sunshine
Television Corporation, announced
that his company had applied to
the Federal Communications Com-
mission for the licensing of a tele-
vision station to serve the Tampa-
St. Petersburg area. The exact
location of the station has not
been determined but several sites
on both sides of Gandy Bridge are
being considered MY WILD
IRISH ROSE proved to be a very
tame tale relieved only by the
beauty of newcomer Arlene Dahl.
Andrea King was sadly miscast as
Lillian Russell. But for the record,
that was Dennis Morgan's own
singing voice Gladys Swarth-
out sang before the most glitter-
ing audience of diamonds, orchids,
and formal wear to grace the
staid auditorium in years. Pat
O'Neal was head usher over a
group that looked like a com-
posite cast of all recent Flor-
ida Players productions: Jayne
Crayne, Russ Foland, Iris Bishop,
Leonard Mosby, Lou Fields, Rose-
mary Flanagan, Whit Palmer,
Stephen Sands and James Dee.
FRIDAY, March 5-Yehudi Me-
nuhin will appear inr two concerts
with the University of Miami
Symphony the 14th of this month
in Miami. He will present Beeth-
oven's Violin Concerto, which is
rated by thousands as the most
beautiful in the violin repertoire.
It was Menuhin's violinistic acro-
batics that were heard from the
bow of Stewart Granger's violin
in THE MAGIC BOW. This Brit-
ish film, built upon the life of
Nicolo Paganini, has played in
several Florida cities (but of
course, not in Gainesville) .
The remainder of Friday's classes
and all Saturday's were suspended
by President Miller. Within a few
minutes after the special edition
of the ALLIGATOR was issued,
students were hurrying across
the campus with suitcases under
their arms. We love you, Dr. Mill-

Sometimes the little things are

of the seven lively arts this week,
I came up with a little thing that
Perhaps you'll be interested
There's a feller named Allan
Lomax who runs a new type of
disk-jockey show over Mutual ev-
ery Sunday afternoon. Balladeer
Lomax's show is unusual in that
his records are the songs of the
people who work the soil, run the
railroads, lay the tracks, and
make America tick. And inter-
spersed with the discs is the soft
guitar-strumming voice of Lomax
telling how these songs came to
be and why they were made and
who made them.
On the Lomax show the work-
music of the nation comes to life.
The mighty Paul Bunyan and the
mightier John Henry step out of
the radio. And Burl Ives and Josh
White and Leadbelly put into mu-
sic how it feels to hear a train-
whistle late on a foggy cold night
or the songs the cotton-pickers
sing at the tired end of a day.
It's a sincere program and Al-
lan Lomax, in a quiet way, ties
the whole thing together and
makes you happy and content and
Immediately following the Lo-
max show is another program
dubbed the "Air Force Hour." It's
very good, too. It's too good, in
fact. This "Air Force Hour" is
perfect. Nothing ever goes wrong,
each cue, each fade, on the nose.
The right music is always played.
There's a smooth-sounding, well-
arranged orchestra and a big
male choir. The announcer em-_
phasizes that he is a full-fledged
After the rich down-to-earthi-
ness of Allan Lomax, the "Air
Force Hour" grates on the stom-
ach. Everything is so contrived,
so intensely artificial. Where the
Mark Warnow "Sound Off" show
got its point across in a big-time
manner, this flopperoo doesn't
quite seem to make it. And when
the finale comes, and everyone,
even the engineer, gets into that,
even "The Shadow" becomes re-
