holding, the traditions of the University of Florida and
building a better campus-wide Student Government in the
interests of all the students.
"2. Party nominations in open conventions of qualified
and capable candidates untainted by personal aspirations.

Politicoes Battle It Out

Editor's Note: Knowing well the consequences of what would hap-
pen should we put one party column above the other without some
system insuring non-bias, we worked out what we think is a criticism-
proof method. Three members of the staff flipped nickels, each repre-
senting a party., The Varsity Party won top spot by being "odd man"
and the All-Student Party went second when the Gator failed to get
"like" him. Now let us alone, will ya?

Florida's high-ranking student
government owes a great deal to
the Gator Party. Throughout the
pages of student government his-
tory on this campus, the Gator
Party has stood in front, contin-

Alumni Has Successful Spring Season

By Peggy Clayton
Hundreds of alumni attended the
two-day Spring session held here
March 26 and 27. The opening
event was the intra squad football
game Friday afternoon at Florida
Field, followed by dinners and
open-house entertainment at vari-
ous fraternity houses.
For those alumni who did not
attend fraternity affairs there was
a banquet at the Campus Club
given by the Alachua County
Alumni Club. Col. Everett Yon
was toastmaster and the speakers
were Dr. John S. Allen, vice-presi-

dent of the University; Judge A.
S. Herlong Jr., president of the
Alumni Association; and Leo
Foster, president-elect, who will
take office July 1.
Friday at 9 p. m. a meeting of
the Executive Council of the Alum-
ni Association was held.

membership of 300. A report of
alumni affairs covering a period
from December 1, 1947, to April 1,
1948, was presented by Matthews
at this meeting.
At the closing luncheon of the
weekend, Dr .J. tillts Miller
was the principal speaker. He
urgea the alumni "to oriage
the gap between wanting a
great university and working
actively to help make it a great
university. He said that "If this
great alumni group will see the
vision of a great state universi-
ty, and go out and sell this
vision, a great era of develop-
ment for higher education can-
not be stopped."
Dr. Miller continued by saying
that the University is "entering
the blueprint stage for future ex-
pansion and development and that
in the near future a careful analy-
sis of the needs for .higher educa-
tion' at the University of Florida
will be developed."

By Jingo Question Of The Week;

By Johns How Big Is Your Letter?
By Barton Johns Students' Opinion Divides Over Query;


Ghiotto Answers 'Smear Propoganda'
It has come to my attention that the opposition political party plans
to smear my efforts to become elected President of the Student Body
because of the fact that I am an SAE, If you will permit I would like
to use this letter as a media through which this might be cleared up.
In 19365 I attended Cumberland University Law School, Lebanon,
Tenn., and was graduated from there in 1937. While attending, I was
initiated into SAE. I have never denied this fact.
Since arrival on this campus I have never been affiliated with the
SAE's. In fact, I have been politically opposed to them ever since
I began taking an active part in politics. I am now running on the All-
Student ticket. The Gator party, of which the SAE's are a, member has
endorsed me. The SAE's are not now nor have they ever been in the
All-Student Party. I intend to continue my fight for the independent
group on campus after election just as I have in the past.
It is regretful that the opposition has resorted to this type of propo-
ganda to try to smear the efforts of a candidate. Actually we are in
training here. B,y our actions we can somewhat be judged as to what
is to be expected of us in the future. I hate to think that we are train-
ing our campus leaders to indulge in smear campaigns, propaganda,
and distortion of facts so as to obscure real issues involved.
Bob Ghiotto

Crews Praises Two Top Candidates
Dear Pen,
Much has been said and is still being said about the character of the
two candidates for President of the Student Body. Each side, officially
or unofficially, has put out political propaganda to the effect that if
the opposing candidate wins, student government is finished. Nothing
could be further from the truth than this unwarranted conclusion.
Both Bob Ghiotto and C. J. Hardee have served the student body
on my cabinet this year. I have found both of them to be honest, sin-
cere and hard working students who have the interest of the student
body and student government at heart. Either possesses the ability or
-apacity, the character or integrity to make an outstanding president.
While vilification may be expected in a-political campaign, we don't
have to believe it, but we can be cognizant of the fact that student gov-
ernment sj going to continue whether under Bob or C. J. and that both
of them are honorable Florida men.
John J. Crews
Student Body President.

Dear Pen:
Since, to my knowledge, there is no consolidate schedule of Univer

that these subjects be entered on one of the APO polls.

think that the comics addition has degraded our Alligator.

- Clerk

Your Vote and Support for these men will be a step in the direction

of good student government and the elimination of bloc control of
the campus.

(Paid for by those endorsing the candidates named)

(Paid political adveTtisement)

Is Announced


We Sincerely Believe...

That student government as w e have known it is in danger of be-
coming a tightly controlled mechanism dominated by a large fratern-

ity bloc...

That the time has come when men must be elected to office be-

cause they have a constructive program to offer the University stud-
ent body rather than because they happen to control the nominating
processes of their party...

That service to the University should be put above personal ego,,.
That men nominated for major offices in one of the two existing

political groups on the campus have attained those nominations as re-

wards for bringing their fraternities or personal' following with them
when they formed the party...

That nominations should be made onabasisof proportional repre-
sentation of fraternity and non-fraternity men, with the non fraterni-

tv men, becauseof their superior numbers on the campus, having the
majority voice in the nominations ...

THEREFORE, We the undersigned:

KEN JONES, Sec.-Treasurer, Student Body




MORTY FREEDMAN, Edlilor, Galor, '4647

JACK DOHERTY, Editor, The Orange Peel

LACY MAHON, Director, Intramurals, '46-47

Urge that our friends and all other students interested in the

welfare of student government, vote for and support the fol-
lowing qualified men in Thursday's campus elections:

on campus shortly after spring holidays when the Depart-
ment of Intramural Athletics and the Women's Recrea-
tional Association cast their lots together to stage a mixed
doubles tennis tournament. The tourney will not be the
first to be conducted here on a mixed basis since mixed
competition was held last summer in several sports, but it
does represent the first time that a co-recreational event
has been attempted during the regular school term.
Members of the men's and women's intramural staffs
alike are pushing the forthcoming tourney in hopes of
making the initial venture a successful one. -Entries are
not confined to students alone but are open to husbands
and wives of students as well. Deadline for entering is
Monday, April 12, and play is slated to begin two days
later. Entry blanks may be obtained at the intramural

PLANNING FOR THE TENNIS tournament is not the
first time that the Women's Recreational Association has
been active this year. Under the guidance of Directors
Dorothy McBride and Margaret Weeks, campus coeds
have staged competition in volleyball, tennis, and basket-
ball to date this year, with activity going on in the Sorority
and Independent Leagues. Winkie Saunders, better known
as a popular cheerleader at Gator athletic contests, is stu-
dent director of the WRA and heads a staff which corro-
sponds to the masculine intramural board.
Feminine intramural staff members are eager to make
a success of mixed sport competition in addition to car-
rying on a well-rounded program of their own. The
coed intramural board met with the men's intramural
board recently and discussed plans for coordinating
their programs as much as possible in the future.

SIGMA DELTA PSI, which is being reactivated on the
Florida campus, now boasts its second successful candi-
date since the time a group of aspirants begun trials a 'few
weeks ago. Jack.Griffin conquered the difficult series of
tests last week to'join his brother Jim in the infant group,
which stands to become quite sizeable before the present
term ends.
The two Griffin brothers, natives of Tampa, are the
first men to qualify for the honorary athletic society
since 1937, when SDP disbanded here. The Griffins are
giving a boost to other candidates in order to help in-
crease membership to a group large enough to function
as an organization. At present, about 20 athletes are
working on the tests, and several are not far from be-
ing finished with the entire series. Gene Williams, hust-
ling varsity trackman and member of Phi Delta Theta's
intramural team, is farthest of any of the applicants and
is expected to qualify in the near future.
Attention of aspirants for membership in SDP is called
;o the schedule which has been established for tryouts.
Swimming tests are given on Mondays by Coach Frank
Genovar, gymnastic events are conducted by Dr. Franklin
Raar on Tuesdays and track events may be attempted on
Wednesday under the direction of Assistant Coach Frank
Philpot. Times for each of these tryouts is from 4 to 5
ui the afternoon.

The telephone will be seventy-two years
old this year. Its development within a

Yet it is only the beginning;
There are any number of men in the
telephone business today-some just start-

than the past has ever known:
Year by year the next half century will
be increasingly theirs: New leaders will
appear from among\them: Step by step,
lung by rung, they will mount the ladder
to the top: For telephone management is

employee management and comes up
from the ranks.
There will be more good jobs for qual,

1958 and 1998 than now. It just can't
help being that way. For of all the busi-
