Latest Bulletins
According to an Associated
Press bulletin, Secretary of Na-
vy Sullivan reported yesterday
that submarines, other than
those owned by powers West of
the "Iron Curtain," have been
sighted off the coast -of the
United States.
Sullivan is quoted as saying
that although he cannot evalu-
ate the significance of the
sightings, it should be remem-
bered that Germany took early
steps in deploying submarines
off our coasts in 1917 and 1941.
There were no names mentioned
in the report, but Russia is the
S nly country behind the so-called
"Iron Curtain" having any sub-
marines at this time.

The armed services asked Con-
gress yesterday to draft men 19
through 25 years of age for mili-
tary service.
10 Gurney said, however, that
these veterans probably would be
'subject to the draft: (1) those
Veterans with less than one year
of service, none of which was
spent overseas, and (2) those vet-
erans with less than 90 days serv-
ice, including time overseas.

Stolen Wednesday

Wednesday night a radio-ac-
tive cow was stolen from the
Nutrition Lab. The meat of the
cow is believed to be dangerous
if eaten. University officials had
been using this animal for test-
1g purposes and had been feed-
ing it radio-active minerals.
Any one knowing the where-
abouts of this cow is urged to
report the information to the
University, since it is of value
for scientific purposes.
The cow is described as hav-
ing a crumpled right horn and
a TB tag on one of t's ears.

body at large and independent
men and women specifically.
They are also endorsing expan-
sion of recreational facilities. The
FIC will cooperate in every way
to bring about the revival of
dormitory dances, tea dances, an
annual Florida Frolics weekend,
and try to establish a general pro-
gram of social events for inde-
pEidueit nimn and women.r.
Some of the proposed plans in-
clude a file regarding campus or-
ganizations and activities to be
made available to all, for the FIC
to be an outlet for the voice and
views of the independent, and an
Independent's Building on cam-
pus.
At the committee meeting, Doss
announced plans for a member-
ship drive to begin Monday. A
goal of 1,000 signatures was set
to be attained by the second or-
ganizational meeting. This sec-
ond meeting will be Wednesday
night in Florida Union. It was de-
cided that a five cent signature
fee be voluntarily collected by the
dorm and organization representa-
tives for operating expenses and
as, a token of strength and in-
terest.
There will be a short meeting of
the various representatives at
7:30 Monday night, in room 212,
Science Hall. Any independent
who is interested in representing
his or her dorm section or organi-
zation is urged to attend.


War Not Inevitable,

Says Harry Ward

By Herb Kimmel
Speaking before a nearly full P.
K. Yonge Auditorium, Wednesday
night, Dr. Harry F. Ward, noted
author and world-traveler, told
the group that war is not inevit-
able.
The talk was. sponsored by the
American Veterans Committee of
the University.
SDr. Ward explained that the
present policy of building/up anti-
Communist regimes must be
changed to avert war. He advo-
cated a removal from Washington
of the "now-controlling Military
men and Wall Street Bankers."
He stated that our present policy
of "global defense" is, in reality,
a protection of individual invest-
ments abroad. Ward claimed 'that
we can not talk peace if we con-
tinue to prepare for war. In this
war preparation he included Uni-
versal Military Training, if in-
itiated, piling up of atomic bomds,
and the fact that we have the
greatest Navy in the world.

Karl Krueger, appearing at the
University of Florida Auditorium
Tuesday night, has brought the
Detroit Symphony Orchestra to a
place among the Big Four or-
chestras in the United States.
New York Herald critic Virgil
gil Thompson said, "Krueger is
a virtuoso conductor and the
Detroit Symphony Orchestra
one of our very top professional
outfits."
The middle of March, 1945, Dr.
Krueger returned to Vienna to be
the first foreign conductor to ap-

pear as guest conductor with that
organization since the war. After
Vienna, he went to Copenhagen,
Oslo, Stockholm, as well as Paris,
Florence, and Madrid for concerts.
The Fall of 1945, Krueger was
invited to conduct a concert with
the Helsinki Orchestra on Sibelius'
80th birthday. He was also asked
to conduct the first concert of the
Stockholm Orchestra after the
war, thus inaugurating the post-
war series.
Valter Poole, assistant conduc-
tor, was a member of the viola
section of the Detroit Symphony
for 20 years. He had been assist-
ant conductor for three seasons
and has just completed a short
"Pop" season by the Detroit
Symphony.
Poole was invited by the Minis-
try of Education last Winter to
conduct their Secondary School
Orchestra in Toronto. It was made
up of students from the entire
Province of Ottowa, .
The pfiblic may obtain tickets
today and Monday in the Florida
Union. Tickets are $1.00 for the
3:30 p. m. performance (Poole
conducting, and $1.80 for the 8:30
p. m. performance (Krueger con-
ducting).
Student tickets may also be ob-
tained both these days. Date
tickets are 50 cents per person.
Tickets will be given for only one
of the two performances. Students
desiring to attend both perform-
ances may obtain their second
ticket at the door prior to .the be-
ginning of the concert. Student
activity cards must be presented
at the door.

Easter Sunrise Service will be
conducted at 7 a.m. Sunday in
Flavet III Amphitheater by the
Wesley Foundation minister, Rev.
Thaxton Springfield, and Rev. U.
S. Gordon, pastor of the First

job as pastor of the First Pres-
byterian Church. Dr. Gordon is

No Waiting To Vote


At Elections, Says O'Neil


(alls Attention To

Two Thirds Vote

On Amendments

Bill O'Neill, secretary of in-
terior, announced today that "vot
ing in elections next Thursday wil
be carried on with a minimum o
waiting in line."
In issuing notification of elec.
tion and offices to be filled
O'Neill called attention to the
"several constitutional amend
ments" that are to be voted upox
by the students.
"In order for an amendment tc
become effective," he said, "25 pel
cent of the student body mus
cast votes. Of this 25 per cent
two-thirds must favor the pro-
posed amendments."
Notice of elections, and a list
of polling places appears else-
whero in the Alligator.
O'Neill also called candidate;
attention to the post-election
clean-up bill recently enacted as
an addition to the election law
Each candidate must deposit two
dollars with the secretary-treasur-
er of the Student Body as evid-
ence of his intentions to "clean-
up" the campus after the flurry o1
campaigning has ceased. In addi-
tioff, the political parties must de-
posit 10 per cent of their nomina-
tion fees as evidence of "good
faith" in carrying out the "clean-
up" of political literature.


Rehabilitation

Program Moves To

Remodeling Project
By Jack Shoemaker
With the notification that the
attic of Science Hall is being con-
verted into laboratories, the cam-
pus renovation program jumps
ahead to other tasks which need
to be done in its campaign.
This conversion will mean an
increase of approximately 2,000
square feet of area in the teach-
ing facilities of this building. The
installation of a new ventilation
system, flourescent lighting, new
blackboards and floors all will add
up to a modernistic Science Build-
ing complete in every detail.
Beautification of the campus is
gaining momentum as the plant-
ing of azaleas, camellias, mag-
nolia holly and pine trees pro-
gresses to change barren areas of
the campus into a landscaping
achievement.
Plans are now being made for
the extensive laying of sidewalks
on all footpaths and the repairing
of all other sidewalks. This will
improve the new look on the cam-
pus 100 per cent. It will also ld
in the maintenance of the build-
ings since the students will not
carry as much sand into them.

University organist, to be given in

and indoctrination of the new
officers.
Howard B. Johnson, member of

With election only six days
days away, the ALLIGATOR, as
a public service feature, presents
a map and a list of the election
polling places.
All polling places, with the ex-
ception of the Law School's, are
to be on the street which runs
between the Chemistry and Sci-
ence Buildings and which cuts
through the Plaza of the Ameri-
cas.
Beginning at the most western
end of the street, the Schools of
Agriculture, Forestry, Physical
Education, and Architecture and
Allied Arts are to occupy the first
polling place; Arts and Sciences,
and Pharmacy the second; and Ed-
ucation and Engineering the third.
Crossing Newell St. and still
moving from the west, Business
Administration is to occupy the
fourth polling place, Sophomore
class the fifth, and Freshman class
the sixth. The Law School is to
vote in front of their building.
In case of rain, all the groups
at the first polling place are to
move into the downstairs hall in
the Agriculture Building; those in
the second to the Chemistry Build-
ing; those in the third to the Engi-
neering Building; those at the
fourth to Peabody Hall; and those
in the fifth and sixth polling places
are to move into the Recreation.
Hall. The Law School is to move
inside their building in case of
rain.
Polling hours are to be from 9
a. m. to 6 p.m. and the votes will
be counted in the Recreation Hall
that night under the supervision
of the Chancellor of the Honor
Court, Dick Broome. (O'Neil said
that those who wish to assist eith-
er at the polling places or in the
county of the votes, should con-
act him).
O'Neill requested that students
do not park their cars in the poll-
ing areas Thursday night after
election so that the area may be
cleaned.


Tours Cafeteria; Reports Findings


r, in the present plant, an
zed bake shop, housing two
ted ovens .. small storage
and an equally small re-
ion unit holding only
meats for a few days. I
the kitchen, four ranges,
which is not in operation,
o of which are bolstered by
of wood to keep the oven
closed. I saw one dishwash-
t (small), one cup washing
ne glass washing unit, and
verware washing unit.
und out that the menus
he cafeteria have to be
d, not on a weekly basis,
n on a daily basis, but
to be planned more often
neal-to-meal basis.
ind that the prices are low-
itrary to popular belief)
e prices of public "eateries"
nesville. And I was told
e prices in the cafeteria


are lower than any similar unit in
the South.
The cafeteria, at present serves
about 1,200 to 1,500 students per
day Monday through Thurs-
day. Friday, a drop begins and
Saturday and Sunday the cafe-
teria does well to serve as many
students as it does on one normal
week-day.
Registered dieticians are at a
premium. It is probable, however,
that we may have one by June 1.
I found that meat prices in the
cafeteria have not been raised
since September, 1947. I was told
that the price of beef purchased
by the cafeteria has risen from
30 cents per pound in December,
1947, to 54 cents per pound this
month.
By way of comparison with
the dining room at FSU the
cafeteria at Florida State has,
until the present year, been op-


rating on a flat rate basis,
with all students eating their
meals there. This provides
cheaper meals, better planning
(for specified numbers), better
meals and more efficient serv-
ice. To be successful a flat rate
plan must have the cooperation
of the students. Would you be
willing to pay a flat monthly
sum for meals in the cafeteria?
Through inquiry, I found that
we have two chefs and eight cooks
employed by the cafeteria.
There are approximately 190
students employed by the cafe-
teria. In addition to these stu-
dents there are a number of full
time employees.
In the new cafeteria I saw a
few of the changes that will
begin service to the students
June 1 of this year tenta-
tive date of completion of the
new addition.


There is a bake shop many
times larger than the present
.plant provides. This bake shop
will house one stove and three
completely new ovens, in addition
to a number of stainless steel
work tables and pastry contain-
ers. The present facilities of the
bake shop, with the exception of
one mixer, purchased during the
last year, will be scrapped.
I saw a storage room about
eight times the size of the pres-
ent space provided.
In the new kitchen there will
be six new electric ranges. The
present ranges will be scrapped.
There will be a much larger and
more modern dishwasher, and fa-
cilities for cups and dishes will
be doubled.
The entire space used at pres-
ent for storage, baking and re-
frigeration will be turned into a
large refrigeration unit.


There will be a disposal room
for dry garbage, and a refriger-
ated disposal room for wet gar-
bage.
There will be a soda foun-
tain, open all day until 10 p. m.,
in the new addition. This soda
fountain will replace the Cam-
pus Club located in the Rec Hall.
The soda fountain in Florida
Union will be moved to the new
Student Exchange Building for
service to the students in that
area.
The entire cafeteria will be air
conditioned, and the present din-
ing room will be remodeled to
conform with the new addition.
These are just a few of the
things I saw on my tour of two
cafeterias .
There will be improvements
June 1. Whether or not they will
satisfy the students remains to be
seen.


Relays, Football


Game To Feature


Big Week-End

State Sportswriters To
Hold Meeting Here
With Sports Events
By Bill Boyd
The University of Florida cam-
pus will be the site of the out-
standing sports events of the
Spring starting this afternoon with
an intrasquad football game be-
tween the Orange and Blue teams
selected by Coach Ray Wolf and
continuing tomorrow afternoon
when the famous Florida Relays
will be held.
The big grid battle sets off the
spark of a colorful and eventful
Week-end for the many visiting
sports writers and alumni as well
as for the coaches and sports
writers accompanying their en-
tries in the Relays. Almost every
major college in the South an4
many mid-western and eastern
colleges will be represented in the
Relays.
Writers To Meet
During the course of the week-
end the Florida State Sportswrit-
ers Association will hold its
Spring meeting, at which time
they will hold their election of
officers. These writers will repre-
sent every major newspaper in
the state, and many of the out-of-
state papers.
Coach Wolf has divided his ar-
ray of stars into two teams for
the Orange 'and Blue game. Look-
ing over the list assures the spec-
tators of a thrilling afternoon of
Southern football. Injuries have
taken a toll of a few of the men.
Bobby Forbes, outstanding Gator
back, will not see action in the
game.
The Relays will enjoy its big-
gest entry list since Coach Percy
Beard of the University of Florida
initiated the idea in 1939. This will
be the fifth running of the event.
There were no Relays in the war
years 1942 through 1946.
18 College Entries
Eighteen major colleges will be
entered in the collegiate division
with 348 men. Also expected to
take part in the Relays is an ar-
ray of junior college and high
school stars from over the state.
The Relays will start at 1:30
Saturday afternoon and all stu-

SEC Head Man

Will Referee

Top Track Meet
By Jack Ledoux
Three hundred forty-eight crack
performers representing 18 col-
leges and universities will take
part in the fifth running of the
Florida Relays at Graham Field
starting at 1:30 Saturday after-
noon. Bernie Moore, new commis.
sioner of the Southeastern Con-
ference and former LSU head
coach, will referee the meet.
The Florida Relays are rapidly
becoming one of the top track and
field events in the South, and this
year's meet has attracted teams
of partial or full strength from
the East and Mid-west as well as
the customary Southern entire.
Feature performances of the
day will be staged by two non-
competing trackmen-Earle Mea-
dows, former world champion pole
vaulter, and Bob Salisbury, form-
er University of Georgia cinder
star who holds the javelin record
for the Southeastern Conference
as well as the Florida Relays.
These two men, both of whom are
seeking Olympic tryouts, will giv.
exhibitions in their specialties.
Among the entrants is a ten-
man team from the University of
Minnesota, contender from thej
powerful Western Conference. In-
cluded on the Minnesota squad are
pole-vaulter Harry Cooper, who
has consistently bettered the pres-
ent Florida Relay record in Mid-
western competition: Fortune
Gordien, one of the top discus-
throwers in the world; and Clark
Rice, one of the top sprinters in
the Midwest.
Tech Stars Entered
Georgia Tech has entered a 25-
man team which includes Buddy
Fowlkes, dashman, who was lead-
ing point-scorer in the SEC meet
last spring, and "Dinkey" Bowen,
better-known for his exploits on
the gridiron, but also a fine javel-
in-tosser.
Boys to watch carrying the col-
ors of Duke University are John
Colvin, pole vaulter, and Roger

1: Of the dozei or so indepen-
dent men in the Varsity Party
nominating committee, not one is
an ex-member of the All-Student
Party. In fact, there is only one
ex-All Student party independent
who is in any way a member of the
Varsity Party.
2. Mr. Stanley falsifies when he
says the independent supporters
of his party are not out for per-
sonal gain. He himself is vice-
chairman, three others have ob-
tained juicy plums among the top
five and two others tried but fail-
ed to secure the nominations that
were already promised.
3. He exaggerated when he says,

the "Big Wheels" of the opposing
parties offered the three indepen-
dents on the Varsity slate nomi-
nations. All three were not ap-
proached in the first place and
those that were only offered the
chance to try to win a nomination.
However, the Varsity Party did
offer nominations to several of the
independents running on the All-
Student-Gator ticket and these
men and women know that the
All-Student-Gator parties can do
more for student government.
4. It's a few greedy men, rep-
resenting only themselves in the
Varsity Party, who are doing the
most to split the campus.

'Independents Are Mis-Informed'
Dear Sir:
I also would like to give some information to the independents. Ac-
tually I don't believe that too many persons on campus were sucked
into believing Mr. Dick Stanley's attempted justification of the recent
betrayal of the independents of this campus, but there may be a few
mis-informed, so I will direct this letter to them.
1. No person in either party has ever contested that there was not
equal representation in the Varsity Party among the fraternities and
the so-called independent leaders, but I don't see what that proves un-
less you contend that the fact that two thieves agreed to split their
loot makes it all right for them to rob a person.
2. Perhaps the reason that the independent element of the Varsity
Party is called "questionable" is that it is questionable just which and
how many independents they represent. I know that they say that
they represent all the independents on the campus but they, and Mr.
Stanley in his, letter, have failed to show anything they have ever
done for any independent other than themselves.
3: As Mr. Stanley is a political big wheel, and I am not, he prob-
ably knows more about "who approached who," or maybe their ap-
proaches were made while Mr. Stanley was still flying the Gator flag,
but anyway, I will take his word for these facts. This certainly.
seems to indicate that Mr. Stanley has fallen down on his self-ap-
pointed job of interesting the independents in student government in
that only three independents wer interested in running, then only
with a 1,700 fraternity bloc vote to support them.
4. Mr. Stanley states that the elements who are doing so much to
split the independents are the ones who refused to cooperate. Well,
that's the way to do it. If they won't cooperate with what Mr. Stan-
ley and Paul Rogers want,-kick 'em out. Personally though, I would
feel a little better about my independent representation if a few more
of them would refuse to cooperate with Mr. Paul Rogers and his fra-
ternity key-swingers.

What Does It Mean ?

The Florida .ALLIGATOR has come up as a political
football during this present campus election. Attempting
to stand above this type of campus politics, many of the
leaders of the party indorsing platforms about the Alliga-
tor were contacted.
Since the Alligator this year has had for one of its poli-
cies--not to be partisan toward any one political party
or for any single organization. Everyone has been en-
titled to a fair expression.
Attempting to check the platform of one particular can-
didate, the Alligator discovered that he was not referring
to the Alligator of the present year, and that he was re-
ferring to previous years.
The Alligator desired to be shown where it had not kept
within those policies.
The platform of the Varsity Party states: "Getting stu-
dent publications back before the student." Does this
mean getting the men elected; getting the above policies
permanent; or ensuring that each party is in charge of the
paper when it is power ?
Anyway, the phrase "student publications back" defi-
nitely includes this year's paper, or rather it does not clear
up the purpose of the platform.
The leaders who were contacted had nothing but praise
for the Alligator, except for one editorial. Does that call-
for mixing the paper into politics ?
We are asking for a retraction of this statement, or a
revision of the statement to exclude any facts against the
present Alligator unless the points are proven.

L RUSSIA-HER PEOPLE
Over two hundred million strong,
they stand on one sixth of the
world's land surface. They are of
all kinds, having 49 recognized
nationalities-until 1927, 50 of the
minor nationalities had never pos-
sessed a written language. They
read 9,000 newspapers (the U. S.
has 10,000 in the weekly field
alone), and they listen to in-
numerable government controlled
and government made radios.
Their land-the largest in the
world-stretches- across two con-
tinents from the North Pacific to
the Gulf of Finland. Three fourths
-of their soil 'juts into the area
termed Asiatic. The bulk of the
agricultural output is from mech-
ani ed collective farms, of which
there are 243,000.
Universal compulsory education
begins at the age of seven and
continues for seven years. Mili-
tary training begins in the schools
at the age of 12. At 16, the male
is eligible for compulsory military
service. Each year the govern-
ment drafts around a million
youths between 14 and 17 years
for industrial training. The state-
owned industries in which they
work account for 99.97 per cent
of all industrial output.
Their "demobilized" troops num-
ber over four million (the U. S.
has 1,400,000).
Some belong to the Russian
Orthodox Church, an offshoot of
the Eastern Orthodox, which is
itself an offshoot of the Roman
Catholic. There are 20,000 re-
li g ious congregations (253,762
churches in the U. S.) and ten
theological seminaries.
MoSt of them subscribe to the
religious ferver embodied in their
great experiment-Communism.
For Russia today is engaged in
coating an Eastern soul with a
Western veneer. Nor is it the
first experiment, since Peter the
Great and Catherine the Great,
both in the 18th century, tried to
make the Russian world into a
Western world. But neither came
near the ambitious program of
the present day Russia.
The Western soul is a soul of
action. Action is our finality. The
ends toward which the action is
directed are secondary. What is
important is the movement-the
rush of life. "We must not remain
still. We must move ahead. Our's
is a love of movement."
But .the Eastern soul is one of
contemplation. To' it, every action
must have an intentional, well-
planned purpose. The Eastern
soul does not move unless the ac-
tion Is productive-and once the
contemplative silence Is broken,
the Eastern soul does not stop un-
til it achieves its purpose or dies
In the trying. It is a soul inured
to suffering, and purpose, or final
goal, is its first love.
And Communist Russia is to-
day engaged in creating a new so-
ciety which is. to be American in
equipment but Russian in soul. It
is a stirring, cruel Eastern soul
which is arming with Western in-
dustrialized techniques, and the
purpose to which it is openly
avowed is the spreading of its
doctrine with the same fury typi-
cal of the Moslem fanatics.
The leaders in Russia are hop-
ing teat Western thought does not
penetrate their Eastern soul. They
are hoping that a Russian peasant
taught the life of an American
mechanic will not think or feel or
desire as does the American me-
chanic. The leaders, abetted by
the people, are gambling 'high
stakes upon a combination of
Lenin and Ford. They want the
Ford technique, but not the Ford
thought,
If the mind of Lenin gives way
before the thought of Ford, the
Russians have lost their battle
against capitalism.
Next week-Russia's leaders.

--- P O LI T ICAL
STEW: Next
week's c am pus
elections put Stu-
dent Body Prexy
John Crews more
or less on the
griddle -- he was
aided in his elec-
tion by members
of the All- Stu-
dents Party and
a few men who left the All-Stu-
dents and Gator Parties to join
with the Varsity bloc. However,
John tells us he's not taking part
in the race for president since he
is a good friend of both Bob Ghi-
otto and C. J. Hardee and since
Hardee is secretary of social af-
fairs and Ghiotto secretary of
veterans affairs in his cabinet ..
Incidentally, Ghiotto in his cabi-
net capacity, was the lad who
traipsed all the way to Pass-A-
Grille to give the VA hell when
GI checks failed to come in sev-
eral months ago Hardee, on
the other hand, organized the bus
caravan for students interested in
attending the Gator-Miami grid
clash Ghiotto has quit his job
downtown in order to give all his
time to campaigning.
UNKNOWNS POP UP: A few
of the men nominated by the two
factions for "top five" offices
have been political unknowns in
the past. Dwell Rushing, top-notch
Gator footballer and candidate for
the vice-presidency on the All-
Student-Gator ticket, is a law
school freshman and has some-
thing like a 3.2 average Tom
Casey has our apologizes; all we
know about him still, is that he
is a law student, is running for
chancellor of the Honor Court,
jointed the Gator party and bolt-
ed to the Varsity group.. Leon
Whitehurst, Casey's running mate
on the Varsity ticket, seeks the
clerk's post on the Honor Court,
is from Brooksville, has strong
law school support and has been
active in the John Marshall Bar
Association Nick Stamathis,
Gator All-Student candidate for
secretary-treasurer, has been ac-
tive in bus ad circles, has a glow-
ing personality, and to our knowl-
edge never had been to a political
meeting until he was nominated
the other night.
NEW TREND: Something new
in the way of local politics is the


sponsorship of candidates by the
"F" Club and the Benton Engi-
neering Council. The "F" Club will
have a clear field, with no nomi-
nees to be put up by either of the
two political factions to oppose
the club's nominees for Athletic
Council Incidentally, the Var-
sity Party, because of their pre-
ponderance of fraternities, came
out best on that deal, although the
club's nominations were made be-
fore the Varsity organizational
deal was consummated. Every one
of the men put up is from a Var-
sity frat In the College of
Engineering two of the three men
nominated by the Benton group
are receiving Varsity endorse-
ment, the other will get Varsity
opposition. The Gator-All-Student
combine is not expected to oppose
the Benton nominations We
hear that the Forestry Club is
nominating Forestry School can-
didates, but haven't been able to
get a line on them.
POT POURRI: Our predictions,
written several days before the
Varsity Party held nominations,
and stating that C. J. Hardee,
Earl Faircloth, Cail Lee and Leon
Whitehurst would get four of the
top five Varsity nominations were
accurate. For a while we thought
they might juggle their plans
since the political deal which
made those nominations possible
was so obvious to the average stu-
dent. However, they ran true to
form, although Whitehurst got
the clerk's spot instead of the
chancellor's post Representa-
tives of five Varsity fraternities
got up a petition asking the party
to back Bill Henry, regarded by
most of those active in publica-
tions work, as the only possible
man who has the ability to get
out a top-notch Seminole, but the
party balked and nominated an-
other man. Speaking of publi-
cations, the pator All Student
group pulled a shrewdy by getting
Leo Osheroff to run for re-election
to the Board of Student Publica-
tions. '"Osh" of the "B'Gosh It's
Osh" fame, was high man of those
running for the post last year.

By

Thursday, April 1.
This is April Fool's Day, and
from the looks of activities on the
campus, it was rightly named.
Everywhere we look we see long
lines, eagerly awaiting to vote for
their favorite candidate in the
student elections. Each party has
a bloc vote.
We start to get in one line, and
we find out that this line is clog-
ged with Varsity Party fraternity
pledges, who have willingly vow-
ed to clog the lines in order to
keep the independent men and
women on campus from voting.
Of course, the fact that the line
is supervised by Varsity Party
candidates with boards, bricks,
threats, and put-on smiles has
nothing to do with the willing-
ness of the pledges to clog up the
lines.
We move to another line. This
line is clogged too. This time by
Gator and All Student pledges.
Ye gads, will we ever get to vote?
At last we get in to a poll.
Here, the parties have clogged up
the lines that are already clogged
in the first place. Something has
happened. The vote is fouled up!
The Varsity Party, in an attempt
to clog the poll, has lost its
pledges! There is a terrific clam-
or! Party men are yelling for
their pledges and the pledges are
yelling for their mamma. Sticks
fly, bricks soar, curses fill the
air.
Confusion reigns. Whoe ver
thought he would get elected?
What has happened? The Varsity
candidates received three votes,
the Gators four and the All Stu-
dents five. The other 500 votes
were cast for an independent who
wasn't even running. He gracious-
ly declines to accept the vote, un-
der the influence of six brick-bats,
four pistols, and a page of threats.
Everyone rushes for the next
polL There is a guy walking
around covered with handbills and
posters. We are curious. Who is
this guy? We take some of the
handbills off his face. Ye gads!
It is A. Student, who has been
cursing the editor of the Alligator.
We look at A. Student. The hand-
bills look better, so we cover his
face again.
We stop. They glare at us. We
glare at them. "We want to vote,"
we yell. "Who for?" they answer.
We are surprised. We didn't know
any football player was running
for office. Then, they apologize.
They thought this was the King.
Ugly contest, and they were de-
termined to have Frank Dempsey
elected. They leave in dejection
and four Fords.
We all dash madly for the polls,
but they escape and run for the
Czechs. We vote. Six votes a piece.
That night the votes are count-
ed. It's amazing! Frank Dempsey
was elected King Ugly, Moe Bloop
from the University of Miami was
elected president of the student
body, Jim Armstrong was named
keeper of the sororities, Coach
Wolf's forehead was voted the
most likely to recede, and Morton
C. Freedman was garbage col-
lector.
A wild election! None of the
nominated candidates was elected.
None of the parties received a ma-
jority. The lines were clogged, no
one could count but one vote each
and the student body as a whole
is teed' off. Later results show
that the independent who is still
lost in the shuffle has transferred
to the Florida Farm Colony. He is
happy now.

APRIL & MAY MONTHS FOR JOOKIN' Yep,
next month is Spring Carnival and right after that
is the perinnial Spring Frolics both big weekends
for every Gator and Garter. Now is the time for all
good men to truck on down to Silverman's The
Man's Store and take a look-see at his new dinner
jackets in white and blue (with the latest shawl ef-

links, braces, handkerchiefs and those slick black
Bostonian Night Owls, Silverman's is famous for his
Formal Wear because the quality is excellent and the
price is sensible.
This column will take a poll soon on "How many times have you seen Presi-
dent Miller just walking around, not at any function?" We ran a pilot survey
around the office and the average number is low. Three men had seen him
twice, two had seen him three times, and one wheel had seen him five times, the
most. We have seen him four times that we can be sure of. The most memor-


able was when we saw him

peering out of a broom closet, at least it looked like
a broom closet. We were just coming out of the
Business Manager's swank sanctum. We had opened
the door and had our hand on the knob when we
saw Doctor Miller in exactly the same position across
the corridor, except that he had his hand on a light
oak colored door. He had his hat on. He looked at
us for just a second and we looked at him, then he
closed his door and disappeared into the darkness
inside.
And people ask us if we know him.
