"Henry V" Motion Picture

Will Begin Here Tuesday

By Gerald Clarke
"Henry V," the long awaited
British film, will hit Gainesville
movie screens Tuesday and Wed-
nesday of next week. The picture,
which Time Magazine hailed as
the "film industry's greatest
Work of art," will have two spe-
cial showings for University stu-
dents at 9:30 a.m. each day of the
run with reduced admission of 74
The film, which features
Laurence Olivier in the triple
role of producer, director, and
star, is an innovation for the
screen. New techniques were
devised to handle the innumer-
able problems of transferring
the great Shakesperean history
Play to its new medium. In
rnay ways the picture makes
iMprovements on the original.
Certain speeches and scenes
Were cut out, or rearranged to
give the play complete benefit of
the unlimited freedom which the
lotion picture camera affords.
Ye, even according to eminent
aiholars, the force of the drama is
tMoosified. Professor Allardyce
k1ioll points out the remarkable
1It1hip which may be found be-
t'een the technique of the Eliza-
bethan stage and that of the mo-
'de motion picture.
7be.OBrltish film, which w"t

made between air raids during
the war, runs for two hours and
14 minutes and almost never
drops in interest. Beginning
with an aerial view of 17th cen-
tury London the camera gradu-
ally comes to rest on Shakes-
peare's Globe Theatre, where a
performance 'of "Henry -V" is
about to take place. The .play be-
gins and film audiences have an
opportunity to see what takes
volumes of scholarly notes to de-
scribe. A tradition is made and
the over-embellished acting and
the over-responsive audience of
Shakespeare's theatre is forgot-
ten for the splendor of the French
One of the great battles in
history is portrayed with such
vividness and power that even
the "immortal bard" would
have to approve. At the opening
of the play, the Prologue has to
beg stage audiences to multiply
with their imaginations, every-
thing which -they see on the
stage. The play and the movie

charming love scenes of all

Protest Group

Chairman Cites

Aims And Plans

By Gerald Clarke
The Student Protest Committee
announced plans this week for a
long-range program of activities
centered around the civil rights
issue. In a conference with an
ALLIGATOR reporter, committee
leaders expressed a desire to clari-
fy their position on several ques-
Jim Crown, committee phair-
man, said, "We feel that the Is-
sues of segregated education
and civil rights are closely link-
ed; consequently, we have ex-
tended the committee's purpose
to include a stand for civil
rights." The original plan was
to express opposition to segre-
gated regional education."
Committee heads pointed out
that their original plan for pro-
test grew out of a fear that
Gainesville and the University
would become as notorious in the
nation's press as Waukulla, where,
the committee said, the governors
mis-used a conference on educa-
tion for political and personal
stands on civil rights. The group
members stated that they had not
intended to involve the school in
their protest, and that at no time
was picketing, ,or any similar
demonstration planned.
Asked about their plans for
the future, the group outlined
a program of continued protest
against segregated' education.
"We also wish to express our
desire for the incorporation of
a civil rights program in the
South," they said.
The committee's plans, it was
stated, include a conference some-
where in Florida during the next
week or so, to correlate activities
of similar groups of students on
the major campuses of the state,
such as the Universities of Miami
and Tampa, Florida State Univer-
sity, Rollins and Stetson.
Ata, later date a regional con-
ference will be held somewhere in
the Southeast by representatives
from all the major Southeastern
schqolp. This meeting will pass
resolutions to express support of
a. civil rights program.,

ment by the State Executive Coun-
cil Committee last week.
The new organizational plan was
put into effect last fall by Paul
Buchman, president of the club.
Because of the continuing in-
crease in members, it became im-
practicable to keep interest at
regular business meetings for
the entire membership with a
small percentage represented.
Therefore, the constitution was
amended, providing for a Board
of Directors to handle the main
business of the organization and
providing for bi-weekly lunch-
eons with an interesting pro
gram for the membership, to-
ward the goal of stimulating a
greater interest in' the Demo-
cratic Party.
So far, three luncheons have
proved successful in the organiza-
tion with Tom Watson, Bill Shands
and Dan McCarty respectively as
principle speakers. Plans are un-
derway for luncheons honoring the
balance of the Democratic guber-
natorial slate.
Buchman advises that member-
ship lists are now complete, and
members will be notified by mail
of time and place of luncheons.
The Board of Directors meets
regularly the second and fourth
Tuesday each month at 4:30 p.m.
in Florida Union. All interested
members are Invited to participate.
Changes in the Board of Direc-
tors were made last week. Offi-
cers and the board now are
Buchman; Doug Shivers, vice-
president; Bill Walker, secre-
tary; Rex Farrior, treasurer;
and Directors Bill Castagna, La-
mar Winegeart, Dick Stanley,
Charles McCarty,. Carl Wood-
rich, Norman Freedman, Charles
Waliright, Craig Massey, Tom
Shands; Ed Smith, Jack Clark,
and Jordan Ansbacher.
The active membership is now
225, and a large increase is ex-
pected before the close of the cur-
rent membership drive. Students
over the age of 18 are urged to
get application forms at Florida
Union desk.

The University of Florida ex-
pansion project reached a new
peak today with notification that
within two weeks the ground will
be broken for a three-story wing
to the University Library.'
This construction, designed
by. Guy Fulton and Neal Webb
of the Architect's Office, is es-
timated to cost $800,000, and it
will be built at the north end of
the present library and extend
in an easterly direction.
The contract has been accepted
by the J. E. Jones Construction
Company, of Charlotte, N. C.,
which will start the initial phase
of erection as soon as the ground
is broken. This project will take
approximately 12 months to com-
plete, barring any unexpected de-
The present library will then
be rehabilitated and renovated to
con ormi with the modern design
of the new wing. The whole struc-
ti're library and wing will
then be subjected to the installa-
tion of a modern air-conditioning
This addition will be built pri-
marily for the shelving of
books; however, it will also
mean approximately 200 more
seating accommodations, f or
students. It will be a consolida-
tion of the library as thou-
sands ob books stored or shelv-
ed elsewhere on the campus will
be returned to the library and
placed in this wing.
This will be the first half of two
sections which will be built ac-
cording to the plans developed by
the Architect's Office for the li-
brary expansion project. The oth-
er half, which will be constructed
after the first half is completed
and when the University gets ad-

ditional grants of money, will
close the library in a whole quad-
rangle. This section will cost
nearly $750,000 with the addition
of new equipment needed to fin-
ish the total 'program.
After both sections have been
completed, the interior of the old
building will be remodeled. into a
large browsing room witn com-
fortable seating accommodations.
Three medi-~n-sized reading
rooins and a music auditorium
will be constructed in the new
wings with audio-visual aid facil-
ities consisting of movie projec-
tors and record players.
The present annex will stay as-
it is until the second addition is
finished. Then, unless the high en-
rollment of students warrants the
use of the temporary structure,
the room will be dismantled and

The total valuation of the old li.
brary and its additions will
amount to over $2,000,000/ based
on the current prices of construc-
New boons are being bought
for the library at the rate of
28,000 a year, so it is entirely
justifiable that the library is
expanding in order to meet the
demands of the large enroll-
ment of the student body. Ap-
proximately 2,000 s t u dents

"It is our ambition," said West,
speaking for the whole library
staff 34 full-time employees
and 60 student assistants "to
make the library the center of
scholarly endeavor in the Univer-
sity and the core of a real educa-
tional institution."

Bill Boyd
some time late this Spring or early summer it seems from
all the rumors that are circulating throughout the state.
No, it is not in the football picture as it has been so many
times in the past. In fact, the grid coaches are so well en-
trenched that we believe that Coach Ray Wolf's contract
will be renewed before the first Gator grid game in Sep-,
Basketball coaching has taken the spotlight away
from the grid mentors. Tampa and nearby towns are
buzzing with the talk that Coach Jimmy Hughes of
Plant will move up to Gainesville as head basketball
coach and backfield coach. This week Coach Wolf stat-
ed that no one has been definitely contacted and that
there is no hurry in naming the successor to Coach Bus-
ter Brannon, who has resigned to take a better job at his
alma mater Texas Christian University of Fort Worth.
Just what will happen to Coach Sam McAllister is un-
known and not explained by the many rumor mongers who
have been spreading these words.

fer one of the worst defeats in the history of Florida bas-
ketball and decide to punish the boys in this method?

now in full swing and as you read this some of them have
already been completed. With the help of our most es-
teemed friend Buck Lanier we shall make our choice for
the titles. Lanier says that Pensacola will win Class A,
Marianna will take Class B and Havana will take Class C.
Lanier is one of the top cage officials in the state as any-
one who keeps in touch with high school basketball knows.
However our opinion differs somewhat with Buck. We
believe that the winner will come from the winner of the
Hillsborough-Fort Lauderdale and Miami Senior-St. Pete
games. We will go so far as to say that the winner will
be an unseeded team, either St. Pete or Fort Lauder-
dale. If we had to pick the champ we would stick by
Fort Lauderdale.

FLORIDA'S SWIMMING TEAM has a better than aver-
age chance to take the Southeastern Conference meet in
Atlanta this week-end. With Lou Brown, Bill Pepper, and
Bill Bracken performing with superb skill it looks like the
Gators might upset the favored Georgia Tech team.

Here is a question for all of our female readers. Where
is Liza Jane ? ? ? ?

Genovar's Men 55-20
In Drizzling Rain
In their final seasonal meet be-
fore the Southeastern Conference
meet tomorrow the University of
Florida's swimmers overpowered
a. completely outclassed Georgia
Bulldog outfit here last Tuesday,
by a count of 55-20.
The Gator tankaters pulled a
first place out of every event ex-
cept one-the 150-yard backstroke,
taken by Thex Stewart, who
shattered the Florida pool record
in doing so. Stewart, however, is
Georgia's only bid for a first place
in the conference meet.
Lou Brown, /ie 18-year-old won-
der from Tampa who broke the
Florida pool record last week
against Clemson, lowered his own
record once again. Brown churned
the 100-yard distance in 55 sec-
onds flat, bettering his old record
by six-tenths of a second.
Bill Pepper continued to hold on
to his undefeated record in the
440-yard race. Pepper, along with
John Cornell, also of Florida, half-
lapped the nearest Georgia swim-
mer, turning in a time of 5.36:4.
In the breastroke, Bud McDougal
popped up as a conference threat
by grabbing another win in that
The big surprise, however, came
when Sam Ridout, other Gator en-
trant in the breastroke, came with-
in inches of beating McDougal.
Ridout, 22 year-old Melbourne
splasher, is in his sophomore year
at Florida, and was ineligible dur-
ing the first of the season.
As usual, the Gators took
charge of the diving, with Bill
Bracken outflipping Georgia's Sas-
ser. Florida won also both relays
and the 50 yard race.

Coach Brannon
Accepts Job At
Texas Christian
Coach Buster Brannon, Gator
backfield mentor, has accepted a
position as head basketball coach
and assistant football coach at
Texas Christian University. Bran-
non will leave Gainesvllle Tuesday
March 16 and will assume his new
duties March 23 in Fort Worth.
In commenting on the depart-
ure of Brannon Head Coach Ray
Wolf said, "Buster is a very cap-
able coach and we hate to lose
him here, but TCU is his alma
mater and any advancement he
certainly deserves."
At the present time no one has
been named to succeed Brannon,
and Wolf said that no announce-
ment is expected soon. Brannon
joined the University of Florida
staff in 1946 and has been back-
field coach since that time.

Basketball Scoring

Mark To Lead Team
A fast, smooth University of
Kentucky five brought the 1948
Gator basketball campaign to a
quick halt last week, leaving only
a stack of statistics on- the team
and its individual members.
A look at the win and loss ledg-
er for the season is some indi-
cation of the team's play through-
out the year, but is not a com-
plete picture. The Orange and
Blue compiled a total of 25 wins
against 15 losses and a Southeast-
ern Conference record of five wins
and seven losses. This is not a
complete picture however, as a
number of these losses were by
five or less points.
Taenzler Tops
Tans Taenzler led the pack in
most individual departments, with
Harry Hamilton following close
on his heels." Big Hans collected
a total of 322 points in regular
play, a new record in the history
of Florida basketball, and top-
ped the list in high score for one
game, total points from foul line,
and highest point average per
Hamilton took the second place
slot with a 283 total, and Julian
Miller took show money with 189
counties. Welch placed fourth with
101 markers and Atkinson, out
of play most of the year, tied
with Haskins with 90 duckets.

Several pool reinrds are in dan.

ly shattered the SEC 100-yard
mark, and came within a few sec-
onds of breaking the 50-yard rec-

220 and 440-yard races, will have
a tough time with Johnny Hiles

two seasons has repeatedly -bet-
tered the records in both of these
events. Pepper, however, waded
through the entire season unde-

of the few men who express what
might be called the American
idiom in contemporary literature,

Frost chose a reference from

that metaphor plays in the art of
poetry and living.
After talking upon this subject,

Perhaps hats would have been a
better word than headgear, but
some of the creations you see
around the campus could hardly
be classified as hats.
Jumping over the puddles,
let's talk about what the well
dressed students wear topside
on wet days. Most of the cover-
ings are in harmony with the
weather-they look dreary and
depressed. Aside from that, the
majority of the headgear runs
to practical rather than to any
aesthetic considerations.
Decent hats, built particularly
for rainy weather, are fine, but
these don't offer much in the way
of expressing one's individuality.
Just as there are 'certain brands
of pipes that advertise that no
two are alike, there are numerous
creations that may boast of new
wrinkles here and there. Such
hats generally have seen better
days and although dilapidated,

In answer to the question,
"What is good poetry?" Mr.
Frost replied, "There's got to be
some kind of idea (expressed)
and some kind of emotion; and
there must be a balance between
the mental and the emotional (as-
pects). The author, the editor,
the teacher, t teacher, the reader, the public,
even the next generation-they're
all in on it. You know a good
poem when you're in on it. The
reasons are partly rational an d
partly emotional." When asked
further, "How much do you need
to know to enjoy poetry?" t h e
poet answered, "You don't need to
know very much. Circulation out
in life does the most to Tead one
to the appreciation of poetry."
In answer to a question about
the greatness of Walt Whitman's
poetry, he quipped, "It may be
great in its tiresomeness," and
of Sandburg's verse, "I'd as soon

FIC Will Add Much

What we need most on this campus is for each person to
realize his own obligation.
To lean back and say that the campus politics is in a
mess, and that we can't do anything about it, is the atti-
tude we are now fighting against. To keep student gov-
ernment going on a higher level is each one's responsibil-
It seems, too, that nothing can be accomplished here
unless it is brought down to the level of petty politics, and
that if none of the political parties sanction it first, each
leader feels he should not help something good to become
a reality.
We feel that if some of the political leaders would spend
more time in building up something permanent and good,
instead of an "uprising for personal gain," our campus
would be better and their own reputation would be in-
creased. If this would be the case, an important organiza-
tion as the proposed FIC would not have too many ob-
This organization is designed to form a nucleus for in-
dependent organization-a much-needed reality. A cen-
tral agency for the independents, a stronger dorm intra-
mural league program, the building up of independent
spirit and the laying down of a long range program for in-
dependents are only a few advantages of such an organi-
zation. We feel that this body, in working for rooms and
lounges and events, would either make or break Spring
Many have already, however, termed this as a political
venture, since it is being organized so near elections. That
is just exactly the type of politics we are fighting against,
for this plan is in no way connected with politics and its
constitution carefully guards against its becoming a part
of politics.
Thus, it would pay each student leader to back such a
plan. It is really up to each independent student to see
that he has a part in the building up of such a plan. Let's
liven up the spirit and the campus activities by adding this

"There was the-Door to which I
found no Key There was the
Veil through which I could not
see . Some little talk of Me
and Thee... There was and
then no more of Thee and Me."
There is, of course, the Door to
which we have no Key. Many
have surmised as to what lies be-
yond the dark cavern which man
has not penerated. For science,
with all its shiny vials and com-
plicated compounds, has never
created life or discredited life-aft-
er-death. Thus, many scientific
experts recognize metaphysics as
a higher form of physics (from
which it derived its name) or
to place it in everyday language,
science in its upper branches ap-
proaches philosophy.
Therefore, science freely ad-
mits that some questions it can-
not solve.
But do not presume that all sci-
entists concur on such subjects
in philosophy and theology. Al-
bert Einstein, who has gained a
great deal of respect in scientific
circles, once said, "I cannot be-
lieve that the individual survives
the death of his body, although
feeble souls harbor such thoughts
through fear or religious ego-
Much has been written con-
cerning the Door to which we
have no Key. The sinners on this
earth would no doubt prefer the
interpretation offered by the fic-
tion of H. G. Wells. In his version,
the earth was covered with new-
ly-risen multitudes when the an-
gel blew the final trumpet. Dar-
win was there, as was Henry the
Eighth. And the final roll e v e n
included the hair covered man
from the Paleolithic age.
When the last plea was heard,
God took the peoples of all cen-
turies and all countries to a beau-
tiful planet, shook the multitudes
out of his sleeve, and said, "And
now that you understand me and
each other a little better, try
But such a tale far from satisfies
the yearning within us for assur-
ance of another life. There is the
urge to know to form the sol-
id and concrete. But even this
urge. can be carried to the ex-
treme, as recorded for us during
the Middle Ages. Heaven and Hell
were elaborately described down
to the smallest detail, and to a
people bound by fear and oppres-
sed by clergy, it was a real Heav-
en and Hell. As proof, we need go
no further than Dante's Divine
Comedy, where over the gate of
Inferno were inscribed the words,
"Leave all hope, ye that enter."
Conceptions of heaven vary
tament of India, paints heaven as
a union with the impersonal Soul
of the World. This is by no means
to be interpreted as sitting on the
right hand of Cod, but rather it is
the union of one soul with the
One Great Soul. Here is might be
mentioned that although Einstein
doesn't believe in the survival of
the individual, he could subscribe
to this one great unic--.
Buddhism, another Oriental re-
ligion, calls its heaven by the
name of Nirvana. It seems that
life was a struggle during the de-
velopment of Buddhism, so libera-
tion from life on earth was a
great regard to believers in rein-
carnation. Therefore, Nirvana
connotes "extinguished" as a
lamp or fire. It is the annihilation
of the individual consciousness -
it is freedom from rebirth.
From this, it seems that the
survival of the individual soul-
of each separate being on the
earth is strictly a Western in-
It remains for the 'individual to
thrash out his own solution. Gen-
erally, men of our day are too
materialistic to consider such
mystical subjects. This tendency
foiebodes ill, for without clear-
cut conceptions, our Western per-
sonalities will lack the depth of
character to face the increasing
issues of our times.
We can be sure of one thing -
good works always survive their
doer, and thereby one can live for,
So the question is a personal
one, and it stands today as it did

Views On Married Life

By Bob Browder
It is written that the love of
money is the root of all evil. How-
ever, money is not the root of all
evil aid love is the important
thing. Thus ran the consensus of
opinion here on our question,
"How important is money to mar-
riage plans ?"

Others said they would accept
parental subsidy under certain
conditions. The conditions being
that (1) they would repay the
parents later; (2) that they would
accept gifts such as furniture, but
no money; (3) that they would
accept money only if the going
gets too tough without such aid.
One man, who refused to be
quoted, stated that he was not
responsible for being born and
that he would take anything he
could get from his parents, b u t
would take nothing from his
wife's parents, because they
were not responsible for his mar-
riage. However, he feels that his
wife should take everything she
can get from her parents because

Be on your guard, students! Be-
fore long, the spring elections
will be flooding the campus, and
the politicos will be after you,
tooth and .il. Already the smoke-
filled rooms are filling with more
smoke. The Gators, the-All-Stu-
dents and the Varsities are fussin',
mussin', cussin', collaborating, de-
bating, ornating and fighting .
The main issues at stake among
these party boys now are: Who
will get the presidential nomina-
tion? Who will get the chancel-
lor's post? Who will be nominated
as keeper of the sororities?
We hear that an ATO will get
the presidential nomination from
one group. When that word gets
out, the Phi Delts revolt, form a
fourth party, and then the Sigma
Chi's revolt from the revolt and
bolt into a fifth party. Revolting,
isn't it? At this turn of events,
the SAE's denounce all other par-
ties and form a sixth party, which
eventually evolves into a seventh
party, composed of the Delta
Chi's, the 'Pikes, the DTD's, two
sororities, and one poor inde-
pendent who got lost in all the
Zounds! This won't do! So the
three smaller fraternities, the
Pikes, Peaks and Squeaks, all
loyal Greeks, not only bolt from
all the other parties, but even bolt
from the entire campus, starting
a new university of their own.
Confusion is beginning to creep
in. Six fraternities and another
poor independent who got lost in
the shuffle bolt 'again. With all
this bolting, everything happens
as quick as lightning! They form
a bloc. Two other guys come in
with the tackle. They can't get a
guard, as Coach. Wolf, sizing up
the situation, must be hep. All
day long you can hear him on the
practice field hollering for the
guys to "bloc! bloc! bloc!" So he
forms a party of his own.
Now the situation is getting
desperate. The Phi Delts discover
that through some unforgiveable
mistake, an ATO was nominated
for president. So they bolt.
The ATO's, in retaliation, de-
nounce the whole democratic set-
up and announce they will be no
party to the party that formed
the party. So they seek a dic-
tatorship. When asked what their
platform would be, they replied,
"No' platform. We'll throw in the
whole d-- house if necessary-"
The situation remains desper-
ate. The editor of the ALLIGA-
TOR calls for tolerance. But he
hasn't gotten back from a week-
end in Jacksonville. So he calls
for patience. The Infirmary has
'em all.
The situation is getting desper-
ate. The independents decide to
organize. They nominate Joe Blow
for president. Joe declines. He has
a record before the Honor Court.
Joe feels he shouldn't blight the
office. The independent leaders
take a look at the fraternity slate,
and tell Joe his record has noth-
ing to be ashamed of. Joe runs.
Election time rolls around. Out
of a student body numbering
8,500, there are 6,000 candidates
for president, 2,000 candidates for
chancellor of the Honor Court, 499
candidates for secretary-treasurer
and the one independent who got
lost in the shuffle wants to be
keeper of the sororities. What an

Something is in the air-espe-
cially the odor of onions from
Mary Juanna's abode. Donna Ju-
anna is still up in the air, twenty
feet above see level, which is good
because she would have been
mighty unhappy to have seen
what was happening in the lower
world. Her dream man Big Tex
has developed a liking for some-
one down on his level, namely
Mary Juanna, who sizzles onions
among other things.
A great day is breaking over
the peaceful mesa. Big Tex slow-
ly saddles up Crow-bait and heads
toward Tia Juanna to square a
few head to keep things on, a
level on the peaceful mesa.
Snatching his M-1 from its hol-
ster he said, "I shall personally

beautiful desert the cerebellum of
any unknown creature that lifts
his head above the level of the
terrain. In other words I'll blow
h- outa the first gopher that
dares show his beady eyes above

Tex isn't, raging as usual this
morning. For some reason he is
in a good mood, maybe because
he changed his brand of ciga-
rettes, or maybe because onions
are soothing to the nerves. Any-
way, he gallops along yodeling

and gazes into the sky line-what

shudders and sniffs. He sniffs

A stranger has entered the

tired and wan, as who wouldn't
be after making a 20 foot para-
chute jump in a ballerina skirt,
then trudging along dragging the
pup tent affair over the mesa into
the mesa of a.town?
"Could you show me the press
office?" Donna asks the hand-,
some male she encounters on the
first corner. "Follow me, madam,"
he replies as he scoops Donna up
in his powerful arms and strides
down the avenue.
"Halt," comes the rasping voice
from the gutter. "Stick 'em up
bub!" The handsome man obliges
and dumps Donna Juanna in a sad
heap at his feet. Donna decides
that this isn't the time to change
her death notice in the mesa pub-
lication. So she crawls on follow-
ing her nose to the nearest door-
way. A familiar sound reaches
Donna's ears and she feels rage
surging in her veins. It mounts.
