of the opinion that 12 hours, or
the recognized equivalent, con-

load for University of Florida
students for the second semester
Veterans will be notified as to
the provisions of Public Law 411,
80th Congress, and as to the ac-
tion necessary on their part when
an increased rate of subsistence
allowance is sought because of the
existence of a dependent or depen-

forwarded to the veteran by means
of an "insert sheet" to be furnish-

The checks for April, which
should be received about the
first week in May, will, in all

Of College Unions
In Bryan Lounge
The National Association of Col-
lege Unions is holding a photogra-
phic exhibition this week in Bryan
Lounge of Florida Union. The ex-
ibition, consisting of 95 pictures
from some 25 universities and col-
leges throughout the country, ends
a national tour with Florida as
the 48th state' visited.
It will be noticed from the photo-
graphs of the various Unions that
the buildings vary greatly as to
size, elaboration, and decoration.
They range in design from early
Roman and Grecian to the most
An example of one of the larg-
est and most beautiful Union
buildings in the country is the
one at the University of Minne-
sota. The building has a built-in
garage that is large enough to
house over 500 cars at one time.
There is a picture of the exterior
of this building included in the
exhibition. Also pictured are the
Unions at the State College of
, Iowa and the Wisconsin Memorial
Union, both of which are out-
standing for their beautiful and
Bill Rion, manager of Fla. Un-
ion, says that although many
schools have Union buildings
which cost more to construct and
are more elaborate, our own Flori-
da Union rates among the best
of its kind in the country.

ARE YOU INTELLIGENT?
Many Vacancies Exist In
Approximately 363 vacancies
exist among the total number of
Lewis, House, and Senatorial
Scholarships according to Robert
0. Stripling, assistant professor
of Education. The vacancies, exist-
ing either June 14 or September
1, will be filled by a competitive
examination April 9. g
Practically all counties and
senatorial districts in the state
have vacancies. Since the scholar-
ship examination comes during
the time of Spring recess, stu-
dents may arrange to take this
test in their own home county.
The examination in Alachua
County will be given at 9 a. m.
Friday, April 9, in Room 315, P.
K. Yonge. University students
planning to take the examination
in Alachua County should notify
the scholarship office, Room 126"
P. K. Yonge, in order that ad-
equate facilities can be arranged
to take care of all students wish-
ing to take the examination.
Persons wishing to take the ex-
amination anywhere in the state
may secure an application blank
from the Office of the Alachua
County Superintendent of Public
Instruction on the first floor of
the County Court House Building
or from Room 126, P. K. Yonge.
This blank should be obtained as
soon as possible because it con-
tains instructions about supplying
a medical examination report and
a birth certificate.
Additional information concern-
ing the scholarship law and exami-
nation may be obtained in Room
126, P. K. Yonge.

Easter Observance Urged
SThis week is Holy Week in the ycar'.s calendar-one of
the most important weeks in the calendar Friday is Good
Friday-one of the darkest days in the year's calendar, as
far as Christianity is concerned. Sunday is Easter-one
of the brightest days of resurrection in the Christian cal-
We want to urge each student to look at this week's
background, studying its great significance so that we can
wipe from our daily lives the actual sins that crucified Je-
sus nearly 2,000 years ago. The very same forces of old
.-envy, slander, revenge and moral lassitude-are pre-
dominant in the world today. This week can show up
the forces at work within our own selves.
As E. J. Ree slated : "No man can come to Easter morn-

are set ajar. He sees. in part he understands. It is the

Using Democratic Method
In his book, "War and Peace," Tolstoy stated that noth-
ing can be effective or permanent unless it is put into use
by the democratic method.
We give that statement to you for several reasons.
Things have happened on this campus-both politically
and in some of the organizations-to give the appearance
that students sometimes forget about the democratic meth-
We give this to follow in the path of our other ideals
we try to put before the students for guidance. Perhaps
some of them are too high for some students to grasp, but,
nevertheless, we have not been swayed by any particular
group, but intend to place the high ideals of student gov-
ernment and social life ever before the students.
The student who printed two letters across the campus a few weeks
ago, known as "A Student," made his appearance at the Alligator5
office this week. It is quite evident that he believes in the democratic
method, and believes in what the Alligator has stood for this year-1
all except one thing, and that he says the newspaper has no right to
comment on anything political. If some terrible political menace
strikes the campus, the Alligator must not' say anything about it, he
We want to make it clear to those who think we are fighting against
any particular group, that all political parties have come under our
criticism about democratic methods. We have only set our ideals for-
ward. In all its meetings thus far, the Varsity Party has conducted
Itself amiably. It has made great progress, and almost every plank
Is a good plank to back.
In the past, the democratic method of setting goals and policies and
platforms down, and asking groups to vpte on whether or not they
agree with their principles, and If they do. to join the organization,
is the only way to put something into effect.
The Varsity Party may become more democratic now than the
ether two, but the fact still remains that it was organized by several
leaders, who gathered up fraternities before a democratic vote could
be taken, and then they looked over the principles. Of~ course ; It is
evident that the leaders had goals in mind before organizing the
Another of the un-democratic method of campus politics is the way
the "bloc" vote is used. Fraternity -affiliation should not be the rea-
son for voting for less qualified men. We will always stock by that
reasoning. This is prevalent in all parties.
Thus, we are setting the democratic method before you.
Each student should accept his responsibility for student

I would like to give the following information to the Independents
of the campus:
. 1. There is equal representation between Independents and Frater-
nities on the Varsity Party nominating committee and no one group
can oyerride the other.
2. The so-called "questionable Independent element" of the party
is made up of about 90 per cent of the Independents on the nominat-'
ing committee of the old Gator Party, some of the outstanding mem-
bers of the old All-Students' Party, plus an active group of other In-
dependents that are interested in promoting the welfare of the Inde-
pendents on the campus.
3. The Independents of this party are not in it for personal gain,
None of them who was an officer in the opposing parties received a
higher office in the Varsity Party and none of them is running for
office in the current election. However, all three Independents who
are running for Big Five on the Varsity ticket were approached by
"big wheels" of the opposing parties and offered nominations on their
tickets. These candidates feel, like the rest of us, that the, Varsity
Party can, and will, do more for Student Government than either, or
both, the opposing parties.
4. The people who are doing so much to split the Independents
now, are the Fraternities who were not asked to join the Varsity Party
due to their well-known lack of ability to cooperate.

This is the first letter I have ever written to be published, although
it probably won't be last if I don't soon get out of the University Col-
\lege-particularly the C-3 department, sometimes called "English Mu-
seum" by some of the students in the course.
The reason for this letter stems indirectly from an "Open Letter to
C-3" Students" from. Honorable J. Hooper Wise chairman of C-3. I
have been fed-up with the situation in this particular course for some
The staff concerned in this course seems to feel that flowery lan-
guage can cover up deficiencies of a basic nature in the instruction. I
do not believe that the material offered in the course is presented in
the right way. It is made compulsery for .all students to take this
course who do not pass the comprehensive exams at the beginning of
their enrollment in the University. I believe the main fault is that
there is not enough latitude allowed in setting up of regulations gov-
erning absences insofar as "A" students are concerned. Why shouldn't
good students be allowed more leeway in attending classes? I know
that the argument will be set worth that "A" students would not be
TAKING the course. That may be true but I made an "A" In C-31
and took all the cuts I could get away with. Maybe I'm below aver-
age but I don't think so,
I am of the same opinion which seems to be the general feeling
among the students of "English." That is: the C-3 department is
If any repercussions come out of this letter, and I hope that they do,
please refer them to me. I've had my fill.
Calls For Correct Analysis
As a student of international
relations I would like to know
*where the columnist Marty Lubov,
self-professed authority on inter-
national affairs, gets his informa-
fatigue from a hard day's study
and he left, still insisting that
the social side is the only import-
His ability to look Eft a serious
and dangerous situation with such
a blase attitude is, indeed, a dan-
gerous thing. His implications that
the present situation is caused' by
a small group of publicity-seek-
ing, mercenary men, makes him
guilty of the charges which he has
thrown at other columnists.

Gator Swimmers Nose SEC Champs
By Julian Clarkson 4 1 I
THE ORANGE LEAGUE softball title may be prema-
turely decided this afternoon when a strong Pike nine
clashes with an ever-dangerous Phi Delt array on Field 3
of the drill field at 4:30. This all-important clash will
open play in the bottom bracket of the Orange circuit and-
will draw most of the attention directed toward the day's
slate of contrasts as Phi Delt Pitcher Al Lindgren leads
the '47 runner-up against an outfit spearheaded by either
Bill Boyd or Manager Tommy Hill, both ace moundsmen
with plenty of experience.
As usual, the tourney pairings failed to distribute the
stronger teams equally between the two brackets with
the result that the Pikes, Phi Delts, defending champion
Delta Tau Deltas, ATOs, and the fifth place team last
year, the SPEs, all wound up in the same round robin
group. In the other division, the SAEs and KAs are sup-
posed to have smooth sailing until they bump into each
The KAs exhibited power plus at the plate Monday
afternoon as they opened play in the top bracket of the
Orange division with a 13-3 victory over Kappa Sigma.
Catcher Ed Drew led a victorious 17-hit assault for the
winners with four for four and barely missed hitting for
the cycle, getting a homer and a double with his pair of
WHILE ON THE SUBJECT of frat softball we'd like
to apologize to the Theta Chi nine for neglecting to men-
tion their outstanding record of last year in our premili-
nary roundup of the Blue League softball meet. With
Bill Lorenz on the mound and a hustling offense that
produced plenty of runs, the Theta Chis won their
bracket by outlasting a tough SPEou tfit in '47 and
didn't relinquish their spot in the tourney until edged
out by the champion DTD team in the semi-final round.
Could be that the TX ball club will provide the fire-
works in the Blue loop.
REGARDLESS OF WHAT is said about the brand of
ball played in the Dorm League softball meet, we're as-
sured that there's never a dull moment when the dorm
boys take the diamond. Strolling past the Buckman B-C
vs. Tempt K game last week, we. stopped to find out how
the game was progressing. "What's the score ?" we in-
quired of a boy walking off the field. "Buckman's ahead
11-0," he countered with a surprising amount of pep.
They must really be socking it to you," we remark-
ed by way of conversation before moving on.
"Heck, no, wait'll we get to bat once ahd then see
what happens," he retorted. He wasn't far from wrong.
Temp. K scored 10 times in their half of tne first, and the
game finally went out 21-20, Buckman, after four lengthy

The Crimson Tide' opened the
scoring in the second inning to
take a one run lead but the Ga-

fourth. The score was tied un-
til the sixth when 'Bama pushed
over two runs and took a com-
manding lead in the seventh scor-
ing four times. The Gators came
back in their half of the seventh
to score once and make the score
Jack Rutledge, Alabama short-
stop, climaxed the game with a
long home run over the left field
wall with one aboard in the three-
run ninth to finish the scoring.
The Gators put men in scoring
position almost every inning but
lacked the punch to bring them
home as they left 11 men strand-
ed on the bases. Kirkland's in-
ability to find the plate go him
into trouble often. In the Gator
half of the first inning, he walk-
ed the first two men to face him
but the 'Bama infield held togeth-
er to come up with some excellent
defensive play and pull him out of
the hole. The 'Bama infield saved
Kirkland inning after inning.
Jack Ledoux, .300 hitter last
year led the Gator hitting attack
with two of the seven safeties
garnered off Kirkland.
Joe Folmar with three hits led
the 'Bama hitters followed by Joe

boro, Ga., come down to play the
Gators here. Florida played two
conference games with Alabama

Coach Dave Fuller has announc-
ea that either Fred Montsdeoca
or Bob Adams will pitch for the

changed from the lineup that
opened against Alabama and will
find Jack Ledoux in right field,
Calvin Davis in center, Bill Poole
in left, and Ed White at short-
stop. Ledoux punched out two
