Dedication Highlights
Conference Here Of
Legion District Four

By Fran White
. Highlighting the conference of
the Fourth District of the Ameri-
can Legion's Florida Department
was the dedication of the Ameri-
can Legion Park In Flavet Village
Three Sunday afternoon.
William N. Scruggs, com-
mander of the University of
Florida Howard Rowton Post
No. 157, which played host to
the conference, introduced Uni-
versity President J. Hillie Mil-
ler, who welcomed the dele-
Dr. Miller stated that "The
University of Florida Post should
be a stronger element in the
American Legion, not in leader-
ship and quality as it has that al-
ready, but in leadership and num-
He further said, "The coming of
the Veterans' Hospital to Gaines-
ville will demand much service
and contact work of both the Uni-
versity and the Gainesville Post
as well as those of nearby towns.
The Legion should continue its
work toward getting permanent
facilities for the sons and daugh-
ters of veterans to utilize at this
and other institutions."
The American Legion Park in
Flavet Three was formally dedi-
cated Sunday afternoon. The
playground equipment which
was given to the village by the
state department of the Ameri-
can Legion was decorated with
the school colors.
Mayor Von der Hyde, of Flavet
Three, expressed the appreciation
of the village citizens for the aid
received from the American Le-
gion, saying, "It is amazing to me
and others here that the Ameri-
can Legion thought not only of
the veterans going to school, but
realized and remembered that
many of us have children, some
even as many as five."
After the introduction of oth-
er members of the village gov-
ernment,' including 'Secretary
Sam Teague, student manager
Dick Penn, and John Crosby,
formal dedication was made
naming the playground the
"American Legion Park."
A short tour was made of the
village to point out to the dege-
gates the improvements which
have been made and those now in
progress. They include the new
laundry house, fire station with
fire-fighting equipment and a
trained voluntary fire depart-
ment, the landscaping and paint-

Popular Band Set For Three Dances;

Carnival Will B e April 23-24

By Scott Verner

Johnny Long and his orchestra, a band which specializes in
neither jazz or dreamy stuff but is instead superlative in both,, has
signed on the dotted line to provide the music for Spring Carnival,
April 23 and 24, according to Al Crabtree, Spring Carnival Committee
Long, tops in dancing and listening and a recording favorite
for many years, will bring his entire ensemble to the University
of Florida, which Includes vocalists Francey Lane, the Beach-
combers, "Natille," and instrumentalists Floyd Sullivan and Tex
Setting the musical downbeat for Spring Carnival, the first cam-
pus-wide social function in the history of the University, Long is tenta-
tively scheduled to make with the tunes at an informal dance Friday
night (whether costume or not is still undecided), a tea dance Satur-
day afternoon (possibly to be held on the tennis courts), which would
replace the usual concert and a second informal dance Saturday night.
All night dances are to be held in the "new" gym.
Long, an alumnus of Duke and a member of Sigma Nu, was
one of the first bands in the country to venture into the South for en-
gagements. Most of his dates are taken by colleges and universities,
and he is generally credited with having opened the South as a name
band territory.
"Shanty Town" secured for Long his popularity in the record-
ing field. When his band left their native Duke University, Deces

signed them to a long-term pact
that expired just last year.
While on that label, he hit the
magic-million mark with two
discs, "Shanty Town," which
sold well over a million when
first released and then came
back in 1946 to see 500,000 more.
His version of "When I Grow
Too Old To Dream" also scored
tremendous success. Since
switching to the Signature Com-
pany, Long has waxed "Last
Night on the Old Back Porch,"
"How Are Things in Glocca
Morra," "Paradise," "Blue
Skies," "Hawaiian War Chant,"
"I Can't Get Up the Nerve To
Kiss You," "It's the Same Old
Dream," "Time After Time," and
of course his theme song, "The
White Star of Sigma Nu."
In addition to playing here at
the University of Florida this year,
Long is also slated to set the musi-
cal downbeat at the University of
Alabama, and at the prom of the
United States Military Academy.

By Jurman Clarkson
THE INDEPENDENT LEAGUE softball tournament
ended yesterday, the Dorm softball tourney is now being
run off, and beginning next week, twenty-two fraternities
will toss their hats in the ring for the two frat softball
trophies that go up on the block.
Traditionally the biggest sport on the intramural pro-
gram, softball will probably rank first in spectator interest
this year just as it did last season. Last year's finals in the
Fraternity loop drew a crowd that probably outranked
any other group of spectators at an intramural event, ex-
cepting, of course, such events as boxing and track which
crowd their activity into a one or two-day period.
The races in both frat circuits will be wide open from
all pre-tourney indications. Delta Tau Delta, defending
champion, would appear to be the favorite in the Orange
League, but the Delts will go into battle without the ser-
vices of Fireballer Tommy Taylor, best hurler on campus
last year, who has transferred his talents to the Gator
track squad this spring. With Taylor gone, the 1947 run-
ners-up, Phi Delta Theta, will undoubtedly command a lot
of respect.
I Not to be overlooked are the Pikes, who reportedly
can boast two pitchers as good as any in the loop, backed
by a well-rounded outfit. The pair of aforementioned slab
artists are Bill Boyd and Manager Tommy Hill and the
well-rounded outfit is largely that which won the all.
campus softball title during the first summer session last
Then, the SAEs and ATOs will undoubtedly throw
up a lot of opposition. The latter team will be rated the
dark horse of the tourney provided the ATOs are able to
coax their ace-in-the-hole, "Terrible Ted" Shurtleff, a
rookie southpaw, to take the mound.
NOT FACED WITH the task of going against power-
houses fielded by the larger frats, Blue League teams can
now settle back and establish the softball king of the
smaller fraternities. The Pi Lams usually field a pretty fair
nine as do several others of the larger Blue League teams,
but on the basis of last season's play, Lambda Chi Alpha
will be the team to watch.
The Lambda Chis startled the league last year by
promptly proceeding to make hash of opponents*in a
bracket that was supposed to be the toughest of the
tournament. They shut out the Pikes, 3-0, and humbled
mighty Kappa Alpha with a 13-0 shellacking, The power-
ful DTD aggregation finally stopped them, but even the
champs needed a late-inning rally to turn the trick. ,
Phi Kappa Tau, Phi Gamma Delta, and Tau Epsilon
Phi will also be tough, according to reports. These three
outfits, especially the Phi Taus and TEPS, have the added
incentive of being in the scrap for the Blue League title.
ODDS 'N ENDS: Several athletes have heaped de-
rision on our statement that only extremely versatile ath-
letes can pass the tests necessary to become a member
of Sigma Delta Psi; to these worthy gentlemen, w'e ex-
tend an invitation to take the tests and would like to hear
how they make out. . An Independent League ath-
lete grumbles that the All Stars ought to be good-
"they're not limited to membership on their team." Com-
ment: Any team that has the initiative to go out and round
up a crackerjack outfit deserves to win.

from American colleges and universities there would be
far fewer persons going to school in the war-ravaged

'Uprising For Personal Gain'

Campus elections are only a few weeks off and al-
though the national and international problems seem to
overshadow the importance of this election, we must
nevertheless attempt to turn our thoughts toward our own
backyard and check and double check the type of men
we want in office.
Yes, the Italian election and the next move on the
part of Russia is certainly important. But as a student on
this campus, it is your responsibility to carefully safeguard
what type of politics and leaders are in power on this
An old story about the sowing of seed and harvesting
what you sow might fit in the picture here. If there is "a
venom in the seed thought-plant, there will be venom in'
the fruit which will poison life."
the harvest to be the same." Those few words might sug-
the harvest to be the same.55 Those few words might sug-
gest that if every individual on this campus doesn't see
that the men who are to control student government here
are of the right calibre, and let selfish students get their
own desires granted, then the harvest that our student
government will have cannot be any .greater than what we
put in it.
Life is just that. It gives us what we pay for and if we
are not willing to get out and vote and protect student
government, then we have no right to complain about the
harvest we will receive.
Protect your student government from the "uprising
for personal gain" by doing something about it.

And Stuff

By Gerald Clarke

fI dropped in on
Ed Roberts while
I was downtown
the other day.
1He's the manager
of the Florida
State Theatres
IIIn Gainesville,
which is just
about all of them.
His office was in
purposeful dis-
order, active witm preparations
for "Henry V." Mr. Jaffe, the ad-
vance man with the picture, was
perched on the edge of a chair,
seeming a little anxious about
ticket sales at the University. Un-
daunted by what seemed to him,
a slow sales start for a univer-
sity town, he sat back and chatted
enthusiastically about the film
'which he is shepherding through
the country.
When I mentioned that I had
seen "Henry V," he asked, "Don't
you want to see it again?" As I
nodded agreement, he continued,
"The picture grows on me. I've
seen it 50 or 60 times, now, and
every time I see it, I see new
things which I hadn't noticed be-
Because of Jaffe's tireless devo-
tion to the cause, Ed Roberts calls
him "Henry VI". There is a iote
of urgency about him. You can't
help feeling concern for the wel-
fare of his "baby." One feels com-
pelled to get out there and pitch,
to go to Wiirk and promote the
picture he loves. Although he
seems rugged enough, one still
gets the impression that if the
Olivier film were a commercial
flop, he would writhe in agony
and groan In sorrow-not at all
because of the loss of money, but
because all those people missed the
chance to see the greatest mo-
tion picture the world has yet pro-
As I was, saying, I saw Ed Rob-
erts and asked him about the suc-
cess, or lack of it, of the French
movie, "Carmen," which ran here
last month. A big grin spread
across his perpetually tanned face,
and his eyes sparkled as he in-
formed me that it was a success.
"It assures future booking of the
best foreign films here."
As for the actual plans, he
says there will be a Spanish film
here next month and in May
there are hopes of securing one
of the better Italian films, such
as( "Shoeshine," or "Open City".
About one cultural offering per
month seems to be the schedule.
To help fill in the local cul-
tural gap, to pull up the cultural
lag, or whatever you do when you
think things just aren't cultural
enough, the Film Classics group
formed here seems to have a lot
to offer those lucky enough to I
have grabbed off memberships.
This group's tentative program I
offers such items as "The River," c
"The Great Train Robbery," "Po- s
temkin," "The Lower Depths," c
"Ritual in Transfigured Time,".
"The Life and Loves of Bee- I
thoven," 'and "As You Like It." s
There are 10 more films on the
list and all of them sound inter-
By the way-don't miss the
Florida's Department of Speech
production of "Joan of Lorraine."
[t should be pretty good. It runs
tonight and on through Saturday.

Los Picaros Plan

Expansion Program

In furthering their expansion
program Los Picaros de Quevedo,
'Spanish Honorary Fraternity, has
taken initial steps to install a
'chapter at the University of Tam-
Los Picaros representatives re-
port that the already organized
La Tertvlia, a Spanish organiza-
tion with the same purpose, as Los
Picaros that of bettering relations
with our neighbors to the South
has been approached. Members of
La Tertvlia have received the pos-
sibility of a Los Picaros chapter
at Tampa University with great
enthusiasm and are expected to
vote for the affiliation.
The Los Picaros Expansion Pro-
gram although in infancy is ex-
pected to attain much support
throughout the state of Florida
and to reach its goal, that of a
chapter in each university with-
in the near future.

Campus Phone Operators

Keep University Buzzing

Wants Murphree's Recitals Broadcast
,In vieWy of the recent interest in bringing culture to the Univer-
sity of Florida, I would like to make a suggestion.
Professor Claude Murphree, a C-5 instructor, has an organ recital
periodically that is rather ill-attended. It is not because of the pro-
gram selection or the performer, both of which I believe to be excel-
lent, but the time which the performance is given is inconvenient to a
large portion of the students. 'It is only inconvenient to the extent
that most of us students are too lazy to walk over to the Auditorium
or are too busy.
My suggestion, then, is to have a local radio station, as a public
service feature, or some organization sponsor Prof. Murphree's recitals
for broadcast. This, I think, would also increase interest in actual at-
tendance at the Auditorium and thereby give Prof. Murphree the
support and enthusiasm he so richly deserves.
A radio program would also enable Prof. Murphree to present
some of his lecture material to those students who are interested in
becoming more familiar with the classics studied. As we all know,
fuller enjoyment and understanding of classical music comes from
repeated listening.
I hope this suggestion will fall on receptive ears.
Instead of beginning with the importation of culture to our camp-
us, let's utilize that which we already have to a maximum degree.

Being mostly electrical in na-

hard work, take a lot of blame
they're not responsible for, and
get too few comphments.
There are over 500 phones on
the campus wili more being added
each day. The PBX board 'has 30
trunk lines, 30 outside lines, run-
ning from 2000 to 2029. They are
set up in such a manner that
half of them are reserved for in-
coming calls only and the other
half for outgoing calls. However
incoming calls can be switched,
automatically, to the outgoing

Goethe Stresses

Experience Need
Professor S. P. Goethe of the
College of Engineering spoke on
the advisability of studying for a
Master's degree in mechanical en-
gineering at the meeting of Ameri-
can Society of Mechanical En-
gineers, Thursday night.
Professor Goethe stated that a
student who plans on graduate
study will probably benefit more
by first obtaining some engineer-
study will probably benefit more
ing experience in industry since he
will know what field of specializa-
tion within mechanical engineering
to enter.
Professor Goethe is a refridgera-
tion engineer and holds an army
citation for its work during the
war in developing the -radio proxi-
mity fuse.

incoming calls.
The PBX board is an amazing
piece of nmachinery-if you dial
a wrong number it rings or lights
up a special "plug" so you have
the operator asking "what inuMn.
bah did you dial puleeze." An.'
other special unit permits two o0
more people to hold conference
conversations via telephone. It
the operator should be ill or have
to leave the office at night and
not be able to get a -replacement,
all she has to do is notify the
Gainesville operator, arrange a
few "jacks" or plugs in series,
and leave the rest to the outside
operator. Calls go through to cer-
tain departments without any
trouble or without the caller re-
alizing anything is wrong.
All is not always quiet at the
phone exchange, for instance the
operators have a favorite calle'r-
inner. Every Saturday night
some elderly lady calls up and
insists on speaking to the campus
police. It seems she is very much
afraid the students are driving
her crazy and wants them ar-
rested. Remember when WRUF
had you call 2000 to win a ham.
burger or some such prize? Those
are the nights that put the gray
hairs on the operator's head. All
30 lines were busy, each line had
a person at the other end demand-
ing that they be put through to
the radio station first.
And finally we found out where
the master clock is located. We
searched high and low-from the
president's office down to the
photo lab-looked in spots where
we thought they would be most
likely to hide it-that's right the
clock that rings all the class bells.
Yup, you guessed it-it's in the'
phone room!
