What ain't we gonna get next
(outside of complaints) ?
Beginning with this issue the
Alligator is running a supple-
ment of colored comics. Not just
any old comics, but Sunday's
comics Friday. Our only regret
is that we began it too late to
get "Mumbles" in on our Dick
This supplement is six pages,
but every Friday from here on
out there'll be eight pages.
The supplement is another in
the series of moves toward ex-
pansion of the paper. Through
the first semester the Alligator
came out once a week with a
large paper. Now it's twice a
week with smaller papers but
it averages slightly more pages
per week, than the former week-
ly issue. The main advantage
is that news does not have to
be held over for several days
until the Friday issue.
First expansion step;p, how-
ever, was taken immediately in
September, when the Gator
switched from a tabloid to a
full-sized eight-column paper.
Ii the past week more office
space has been given to the
Gator so there's now room
enough to move around a bit
and stop losing a piece of copy
here and there. More type-
writers, tables, desks and sup-
plies have arrived during the
year, making things work far
Fruchtman attended the Uni-
versity of Florida several years
ago and has appeared in recital
here twice before. He is to be
graduated from Juilliard School of
Music this coming June. His teach-
ers include Willeke, Ebann and
Lieff Rosanoff. He has been heard
in solo and ensemble perform-
ances in and around New York, as
well as in the South.
Miss Wisti, pianist-accompanist,
began her studies with Michael
Wittels in Germany, later study-
ing under Matthay in London, and
was graduated from Oberlin, in
Ohio. At present she is a pupil of
Mine. Vengerova at Juilliard.
The program for Wednesday
night will include a Bach Suite,
a Debussy Sonata, and shorter
pieces by Beethoven, Fescobaldi,
Milhaud, Boccherini, and Faure.
The program will be complimen-

Will Not Change
In reply to the question as to
the changing of spring holidays,
Registrar R. S. Johnson stated,
"This office is of the opinion that
the present date for spring holi-
days favors the majority of stu-
dents. Spring holidays are sched-
uled each year to divide the sec-
ond semester period in half."
Johnson also said that the final
word must be given by Dr. Miller
When approached with the
question, Dr. Miller replied, "It is
too late to change the date now,
but this argument will be taken
into consideration when the calen-
dar for next year is formed."

did they elect permanent officers.
Eugeno Doss, inepenuent
student who called the group
together, presided at the meet-
ing. Lamar Winegart, secretary
of organizations on the presi-
dent's council, addressed the
group, telling them that the
Maain thing was to get off on a
sound footing. He also warned
against the group's participa-
tion in campus politics. Morty
Freedman, columnist and past
/ editor In chief of the Alligator,
also spoke before the group. He
outlined conditions on the cam-
pus which pointed to the need
of an organization of independ-

Gardner stated this week that
through mutual cooperation with
the Athletic Council, "F" Club
representatives could greatly con-
tribute toward policy formation.
Florida athletics are under
par compared to other institu-
tions, the "F' Club president
pointed out, and with the ex-
ception of football, relatively
little emphasis is placed on
"To accomplish its aims," Gard-
ner said, "the 'F' Club intends to
run its own slate of officers for
the Athletic Council."
'Its candidates are as follows:
President, Andy Bracken; Vice
President, Bill Turner; Secretary,
Billy Bracken, and members, Doug
Belden and Fletcher Groves.
"Since these men are closer to
the Athletic Department and bet-
ter acquainted with the problems
facing it," Gardner continued,
"we feel that they are better
qualified to act as a liaison group
between the Athletic Department
and the student body, taking the
wishes and requests of one group
to the other. With this in mind,

Would Make Possible
Officials of the University va-
riety magazine, the Orange Peel,
announced yesterday the launch-
ing of a drive to secure a month-
ly publication schedule for the
1948-49 editions of the Peel.
John Trinkle, Peel managing
editor, was named chairman of
a committee of staff members
to direct the campaign for ex-
pansion of the magazine. Elgin
White and George Mason com-
pose the committee.
Trinkle indicated that first ef-
forts of the group would be di-
rected toward securing a greater
portion of the student activity fee
for Orange Peel purposes. The fee
allotment which the Peel now re-
ceives is barely sufficient, even
with advertising revenue, to cover
publication expenses, according to
"Florida is one of the few re-
maining Southern universities
which does not have a monthly
student body magazine," stated
Editor Trinkle, who added, "Of 17
colleges and universities in the
South with which the Orange Peel
maintains exchanges, 12 of them
have monthly magazines and one
has' two monthlies. In line with
the recent expansion of other cam-
pus publications here, and in cono
sideration of the fact that con-.
tributions for the magazine are
quite plentiful this year, the staff
feels that a monthly publication
can be sustained."
SEditor-in-Chief Jacm Doherty
stated that more frequent pub-
lication would permit the prep-
aration of a better balanced
book since more space would be
available for student literary ef-
forts without a sacrifice, of
space usually devoted to humor,
art work and cartoons.
Trinkle announced that a peti-
tion to place on the ballot in the
spring election an amendment to
the student body constitution
which would raise the Peel's fee
allotment is being circulated. He
strongly urged students to be-
come acquainted with the amend-
ment for the purpose of giving it
fair consideration in the election.

The Film Classic League, which
was organized here last week for
the purpose of showing outstand-

300 memberships, Dr. William G.
Carlton, temporary chairman of
the league has announced.
Only 150 memberships were orig-
inally offered; but in view of the
fact that so many people wanted
to take advantage of this oppor-
tunity, twice that number was ac-
cepted. It will not be possible to
sell any more than the 300, how-
ever, Dr. Carlton said.
The league expects to show the
following pictures: Wednesday,

4 The Florida Alligator, Friday, March 19, 1948
FLORIDA'S BASKETBALL PLAYERS did not ride back
on day coaches from the tourney in Louisville as was re-
ported by this column last week. Instead, we learned from
Dean Dennis (Dutch) Stanley, they came back on a
streamliner of their own choice. It seems the boys had
their choice of taking a Pullman back right after the game
or stay and see the next game and come back to Gaines-
ville on a streamliner. The boys took the latter.
Stanley pointed out that all Gator athletic teams have
had the best treatment possible the last few years and
the athletic department will continue to give them the
best as long as it is possible. We are sorry that we were
misinformed on the matter.
DEAN STANLEY ALSO DENIED THAT Jimmy Hughes
would come to Gainesville under his contacts. Stanley
said that Coach Wolf would appoint the man to succeed
Coach Brannon and that his office would continue its poli-
cy approving the men recommended by Wolf. The Dean
also said that he does not contemplate any change in the
basketball coaching set-up as rumors say.
FLORIDA RELAYS, TOP TRACK EVENT of the year
for the University, seems to be ready for its biggest en-
try list since Coach Percy Beard started the event in
1939. The war stopped the relays and this is the fifth
event since 1939. To date over 33 colleges, junior col-
leges, and high schools have filed entries.
THE OTHER DAY AS WE WERE WANDERING
around the athletic plant hunting something to write
about we stopped by the basketball court and no sooner
had we reached the door when the scent of perfume and
powder struck our nostrils. With fire in our eyes we
charged into the door and lo,and behold we could see
nothing, but a crowd of boys completely encircling the
court. Our first thought was that Florida's cagers were
playing the Georgia Bulldogs. A closer look revealed a
girls' basketball game in full swing. Of course the girls
were in shorts.
GATOR GRID FANS WILL GET a pre-season look at

A hard-hitting All Star nine
copped the Independent League
intramural softball title Tuesday
afternoon by hammering out a
10-3 triumph over the Avondales
behind the five-hit hurling of Ray
The win was the seventh in a
row for the All Stars, who drop-
ped their initial' start of the tour-
ney and then came back to blast
every opponent into submission.
Jim Whittle, diminutive Avon-
dale pitcher, went the route for
the losers, giving up eight safe-
ties, and was charged with his
first defeat of the tournament,
but the Stars' run total was
greatly helped along by five mis-
cues committed by the Avondale
defense. A four-run outburst by
the Stars in the third frame,
which gave them a decisive lead,
was the exclusive product of
Stars Hit Hard
Harold Freeburg, who' connect-
ed for a triple and single, and
Ivan Crim, with a double and sin-
gle, starred at the plate for the
new champs. Avondale Shortstop
Gene Ryan was the only member
of the losing outfit to touch Hen-
dricks for more than one blow,
rapping out a pair of one-basers.
The All Stars opened the scor-
ing in the bottom halt of the sec-
ond stanza with two markers.
Catcher Don Crim slapped out
a single and scored on Freeburg's
triple. After Freeburg was wiped
off the basepaths, Ivan Crim sin-
gled and moved around the sacks
later to make it 2-0.
A miniature Avondale blowup
gave the Stars four more in the
third, the tallies resulting from
a combination of a walk, two er-
rors, and Charlie Boutelle's two-
sacker. The Avondales picked up
their first run in the fourth on
Ryana' single, Catcher Ward Har-
ris' double, and a fielder's choice.
The Avondales tried to initiate
rallies in each of the last two in-
nings, but an alert All Star infield
and Hendricks' superlative hurl-
ing choked off each uprising with
a lone tally. The Stars played
errorless ball afield. '

ficials selected an all-tournament

All petty pilferings which are

Report and investigated by the
chief of the Maintenance Staff
and the City Police.
Copies of these reports are also
sent to the Dean of Student's
Office and the Sheriff's Office.
The Lost and Found Department
of the Dean of Student's Office
vorks in coordination with these
reports and attempts to locate all
items within their means. Articles
of clothing and books are easily
traced, while money and jewelry
are very hard to track down.
The Housing Office insists that
its maids and janitors are trust-
worthy and that they cannot be
blamed for things that are stolen.
Chief among the noise nuisances
that are investigated is the drunk-
eness of students and their raising
cain at all hours of the night.
Next on the list is the burning
of trees and bulletin boards
throughout the area.
Another vandalism is that of
breaking down the doors to stu-
dents' rooms. "But," states Claude

The University of Florida has

Training set-up at the Depart-
ment of Speech.
Over in Building E, there are
three rooms devoted to the radio
training equipment. Two of the
rooms serve as studios and the
other, situated between these two
is a control room. One studio and
the control room is soundproofed,
and the three rooms are separat-

and Radio Management. Steis is
a graduate of the University of

Poor Politics, Journalism '
In the poorest of taste was the recent attack on Charles
E. Bennett, congressional candidate, by the Jacksonville
Chronicle. Bennett, a disabled war veteran, was the ob-
ject of a "news" story containing such as this:
"Jaxons said this week they wonder if the federal
government is financing the congressional bid of Charles
E. Bennett, local attorney, against incumbent Congressman
Emory H. Price of Jacksonville."
The story went on to give details of how much Bennett,
a former editor of the Alligator, is receiving as disable-
ment compensation. It ends with, "They say he'd like to
be elected congressman in 1948, governor in 1952, United
States senator in 1958 and president of the United Sttaes
Besides being extremely poor journalism it was ani even
poorer type of political maneuver.
Here on the University of Florida campus we are at-
tempting to train leaders in good government; not to be-
come good politicians-the kind of a "good! politician"
who wrote the story on Bennett. Our aim is to send men
out who will not stoop to things of this sort but who will
attempt to improve the way people's government is being
run. We hope they'll be trained in such a manner here
that they won't lower themselves to actions such as that.
Backing Peel's Campaign
In line with the expansion of other publications, we are
solidly behind the drive of the Orange Peel, campus va-
riety magazine, to become a monthly publication.
For a university of this size there isn't much credit in a
magazine appearing onjy quarterly. The Peel has im-
proved greatly in style in the last few issues but in the time
in between appearances it is almost forgotten. Once a
quarter isn't often.
May the Orange Peel come through on its campaign and
cease to be the step-child of publications.
Letters To The Editor
Students Warned Of Peddlers
I hope this letter will reach many of those people who have re-
cently been duped into putting their money into pockets of thieves and
will warn those who are likely to in the near future. This campus, as
well ad many other since the war, has become a Wall Street for count-
less numbers of petty grafters. In the last year many students have
lost nominable sums of money by buying suits, magazines, portraits,
etc., that they have never seen.
The students can cooperate in stamping out this evil by buying
nothing from peddlers, and especially when they don't even see the
merchandise. Notify your monitor of people selling in the dormitories
who do not have housing office permits. Report all suspicious charac-
ters, if you are not satisfied with their credentials, to the local police
or to school officials. Only then can we rid ourselves of this menace
that drains the meager resources of the greater part of the student

Echo To Broadcast Request Heard
Having just read W. D. Sudia's letter concerning Claude Murphree's
organ recital broadcasting, I would like to second his motion., As you
probably know, Mr.. Murphree broadcast for years on WRUF before
I have been a student of Mr. Murphree for two years and am nat-
urally intrigued by his interpretations of everything from Bach to
Boogie. Never have I mentioned him to anyone living in this area but
that I was most enthusiastically presented with, "Oh, yes, I used to
always listen to him on the radio." Or, "Why on earth did they stop
such a good program?" So, I have been led to believe that thp public
would welcome even only a weekly broadcast of good organ music.
Claude Murphree is "one of," if not "the" South's leading organists
and we boast of Florida's finest and largest pipe organ right here on
campus. So niay I echo Mr. Sudia's-"let's utilize that which we al-
ready have to a maximum degree."
I am hoping to soon enjoy Claude Murphree via radio broadcasts.

have for some time held the pri-

is an abrupt diplomatic change,
our country will soon be mobiliz-

war. I have hesitated to mention
it in this column, for one does not
recklessly expound such views.
All of us are comparatively at a
tender age and likely to absorb
those ideas too quickly. But it
seems that the" time has come to
openly recognize the taut situa-
tion around us, for both govern-
ment and citizens of our nation
are awaiting the spark which is
destined to light the tinder.
Let us not, however, make the
mistake of presuming that war is
inevitable. Let us rather presume

and preparedness in the mind.
I can do little about prepared-

against atrocities. I fought for
self-defense. I fought because my

was some talk in newspaper col-

POLITICAL STEW: That Var-
sity Party announcement of an
"open nominating convention" to
select candidates must have been
made by the Varsity boys with
their tongues in their cheeks,
since it was the independent Flor-
ida Party and later the All-Stu-
dents Party which first introduc-
ed the idea Speaking of the
Varsity Party, we understand
(although this stint, was finished
before last night's "convention")
that C. J. Hardee WILL get their
nod as presidential candidate
(contrary to our information of
last week), that Earl Faircloth,
an independent, will get the vice-
presidential bid, Call Lee of Kap-
pa Sig will be the candidate for
secretary-treasurer and L e o n
Whitehurst, law school student,
will be named chancellor candi-
date. There's some dissension on
the clerk candidate, but Hardee,
Faircloth, Lee and Whitehurst
are almost certain to get four of
the "top five" nominations, even
if not in the order named by us
. On the other hand, it appears
certain that Bob Ghiotto, inde-
pendent leader and member of
Florifia Blue Key, will get the All-
Students' top spot and chances
seem good that Quentin Long, an-
other independent, will get the
nod as' chancellor candidate .
From the Gator Party camp we
hear that Lacy Mahon, also a
member of FBK, will be nominat-
ed for the vice-presidency. How-
