Local Forestry

Fraternity Joins

National Group
The Florida College Farmer
Board met Monday night in Flor-
ida Union to officially recognize
three organizations connected
with Agricultural College. One of
the organizations recognized was
Xi Sigma Pi, national honorary
forestry fraternity.
Tau Alpha Nu, local honorary
forestry fraternity, was recent-
ly chartered nationally and be-
came Xi Sigma Pi This fraternity
is open only to those students in
the School of Forestry. To be
eligible a student must have a
high scholastic average and fel-
Xi Sigma Pi was founded at the
University of Washington in 1908.
By 1915 it was chartered national-
ly, and it now has 15 active chap-
ters. The fraternity is a brother-
hood to promote professional in-
terest and fellowship among all
students interested in forestry.
Professor Burr M. Prentice was
the installing officer at the in-
stallation ceremonies. Prentice is
the Secretary Fiscal Agent of
Xi Sigma Pi. Twenty-one stu-
dents and six faculty members
form the first chapter on campus.

Cyclo-Tourist Group

Plans Trip Saturday

Many people have seen groups
of cyclists passing along the road
to Camp Wauburg or other high-
ways radiating from Gainesville.
Chances are that they were mem-
bers of the cyclo-tourist group,
composed of students interested
in travel by bicycle.
Their activities are not and will
not be confined to the Gainesville
area nor to Florida. Some of the
members have traveled in several
states and outside the country al-
A short ride, under 25 miles,
has been planned for the coming
Saturday, April 3. Starting point
is outside the Gator Club at 1:30
p. m: Access to a lightweight bi-
cycle in good running order is ad-
ventageous. Whizzers, motor
scooters, and jet-jobs cannot be in-
cluded. For further information
send a penny postal card to David
Gilchrist, General Delivery, Uni-
versity Station.





There must be an acute housing shortage! Otherwise we wouldn't
know why this student was caught sleeping on a bench between
Fletcher and Thomas Halls at 9:30 a.m. last Friday.


Alligator Tells Story Of

Political Letter Intrigue

"A Student" Visits Editor in Office;
Is Ghost Writer In New Campus Party

The ALLIGATOR, in an attempt
to use the last few issues before
elections to presenting a fair ac-
count of this year's campus situ-
tion, held off any report of vari-
ous happenings because of the con-
sequences that could have result-
ed for the parties.

Formal Organization

Of FIC Is Held And

Constitution Adopted

Eugene Doss Elected
President Of Campus
Independent Group

The young FIC became formal-
ly. organilzd Wednesday' night
with the adoption of a constitu-
tion and the election of officers.
Dean R. C. Beaty addressed the
group saying that he is, "very
much interested in this movement"
and that the great mass of stu-
dents are missing something in
their college life." The Dean of
Students stressed the point that
the FIC is "not to split the cam-
pus half-in-two but is an attempt
to get all students in some kind
of organization."
He went on further to say that,
"This group can give training in
leadership and that's what I'm
for. I'm willing to cooperate with
the FIC in any way I can."
The officers elected to the FIC
were: President, Eugene Doss;
vice president, Charles M. Ever-
ett; secretary, Harry Letaw; treas-
urer, John Mantilla; social direc-
tor, Charles Wainwright; public-
ity director, Wirk Frazier; mem-
bership director, George Clark
Smith; record secretary, Leroy
This independent, non-political
organization invites all University
students to secure a representative
to the FIC in accordance with their
respective housing units that each
man properly give his views.
The FIC voted to affiliate with
the National Organization of In-
dependent students and major com-
mittee were established. The FIC
will support the Spring Carnival
and work has begin.
Progress is already taking place
on many of the aims set up in the
report of the policy committee
prior to organization. Reports of
these actions will be made as soon
as possible.
The regular meeting scheduled
for Wednesday will not be held
because of its nearness to Spring
Vacation. Next meeting is April 21

As stated a few weeks ago, and
in the Orange Peel, issued today,
the editor of the Alligator promis-
ed the student body to answer the
"A. Student" when he reported to
the Alligator office.
In his first letter, A. Student
stated: "I am not in any way con-
nected with a political party."
After nearly two weeks, the
student appeared in the Alligator
office and was in session with the
editor for over an hour. He was
identified as a fraternity member
of the chairman of the new party,
and since then, was identified as a
ghost writer in the new party.
It was also learned that political
leaflets released by the new party
are typed on the same typewriter
as the A. Student letter.
Coming to an agreement on
everything except one item, on the
duty of an editor in politics-the
student was referred to a journal-
ism professor. Whether A. Student.

Campus political campaigns
dropped their usual good taste in
propaganda this year, several of
the leaders revealed. Stories went
wild that a certain candidate was
caught tearing up the opposite
party leaflets, and a picture was
taken of. her doing it. So far, no
picture has been shown but all of
her campaign leaflets were miss-
ing from campus.
The Alligator editorial staff
commented that it seemed as if
the parties were stooping mighty
low to begin uncalled-for propa-
ganda and rumors so insignificant
as this.
"It appears to me that campus
politics, the proving ground for
our community, state and national
leaders in years to come, could
strive to Improve politics." Editor
Gaines said.
"It is mighty depressing to know
that those might be the leaders of
the state in years to come. I be-
lieve that the University, politics
should develop a different type of
leaders and stronger characters in
the campaigns," he added.

Excellent Italian Film

Scheduled By Statle

Theatre For April 13
The celebrated Italian film,
"Open City" will play at The
State Theatre April 13, according
to an announceme: I. made by Bill
Duggan, manager.
"Open City" which has been
named as one of the 10 best pic-
tures of 1947 is not a glistening,
streamlined movie from the smooth
assemblylines o Hollywood. It is
,the creation of a producing com-
pany that was brought together
in Italy in the first months after
that country was liberated from
the Nazis.
It tells the story of the heroes
of the Italian underground who,
long before American forces near-
ed Rome, were carrying on a strug-
gle for freedom against the Wehr-
macht and the Gestapo.
The coming of "Open City" is
significant at this time because
of the Italian elections which are
slated for April 18. All political
and military observers are point-
ing to the importance of these
elections. "Open City" should give
the students a chance to see some
of the motivating influences of
the Italian people.

Campus Kissing Crisis

many nights of intensive research
by the Special Service Staff of

for the benefit and general wel-
fare of all students.
Kissing has always b e en a

problems intervene. One of the
most serious of these is the dif-
ference in height between the os-
culators (kissers to you).
For the coeds who are taller
than their dates, it is better to
be sitting down or have a stool
handy for him to stand on. If
there is no stool, you could bend
your knees, if no one is stand-

'For the male students who hap-

least six inches to the total height

A possibility always exists
that an unskillful operator
hasn't awakened in his date a
desire to be kissed. The usual
method in such cases is to stall

in It that leaves the man in a
frustrated mood which he will
be anxious to erase by coming
back again. A better way Is to
develop a sudden interest in the
scenery and keep turning your
head from side to side until he
gets dizzy and goes home.
Undoubtedly the way to settle
the question for good is to run
into the house and slam the door
in his face when the question is
brought up. Of course, this will

the eager type.
Some gallant operators car-
ry a wet sponge in their pocket
to take care of such occasions.
The girl thinks she has been os-

Cow College Bull
By Eugene Doss
The final report of the Florida
College Farmer Board is in Dean
Hume's office When he re-
turns to the college from his trip
south, he will make a decision on
the reactivation of that publica-.
The members of the FCP board
have been asked to present the
plan for the reactivation of the Ag
College Council to their respective
organizations... In many schools,
it is mandatory that the president
of each organization serve on the
council ... To be more democratic,
one representative from each
group should be elected to the Ag
council The President of the
council should be elected instead
of the chancellor of Alpha Zeta be-
coming president automatically, as
in the old set-up ... It has also
been suggested that the FCF
board might serve as the council
for the college The interests of
the best representative to the
board is likely to differ from those
of the council How about it,
Cow College, do you want the
Council and how do you want it?

Likes New Law

The Business Manager's Of-
fice reported yesterday that the
University is gratified by the ac-
tion taken by the Executive Coun-
cil in the passing of the post-
election cleanup amendment to the
Student Constitution.
This action voted upon at the last
Executive Council meeting, also
prohibits the posting of campaign
circulars on any other places ex-
cept specified bulletin boards. This
will do much in furthering stu-
dent support in the recent beauti-
fication program.
Last year, the damage was
heavy because of the large num-
ber of nails, tacks, staples, scotch
tape, and paint used in the cam-
paigning on the exterior and in-
terior surfaces of most campus

Artistic Billboards
Receive Attention

As the result of an unsigned
letter from a Florida Gal which
cannot be printed because it is un-
signed, we looked into the artistic
aspect of the election signboardss."
The signboardss" are not beau-
tiful and they cost the University
about $75 from the maintenance
funds. Despite the boards, campus
police have been busy tearing down
election material from unauthoriz-
ed places. This is in addition to
their full time job of keeping stu-
dents cars out of administration
officials' parking places.
After the elections, the boards
will be taken down by mainten-
ance and the scattered mess will
be cleaned up as usual. The total
gain seems to be a loss.


Dr. Ward's Recent Speech

Here Draws Criticism

Phipps Takes Issue With Remarks Made
By Speaker On Soviet-American Relations

By "Hap" Hazard
In a letter to the Editor, Cecil
G .Phipps, department of Mathe-
matics, has tried to show to the
student body the basic points con-
tained in the recent speech of Dr.
Harry F. Ward, who spoke on So-
viet-American relations.
During the course of Ward's
talk, no one took serious issue
with his remarks, because of cour-
tesy to the speaker. Phipps. who
participated in both World Wars
now wishes to "meet the challenge
of Ward's talk."
According to Phipps, Dr. Ward

Poultry Contest
Results Received
A team representing the Uni-
versity of Florida finished fourth
in a field of eight at the South-
eastern Intercollegiate Poultry
Judging Contest, Baton Rouge, La.,
this week, N. R. Mehrhof, head
of the University's poultry hus-
bandry division, has been inform-
R. A. Young, St. Petersburg, was
fifth high individual judge, while
Kenneth Laurent, Bartow, was
ninth. The other member of the
Florida team was Lester Kalch,
Miami, with Verbon Pugh. Milton,
alternate. Prof. J. Clyde Drig-
gers, coach, accompanied the
team to Baton Rouge.
In judging poultry meat pro-
ducts, the Florida team finished
second, with Young as high in-
dividual. In the production classes,
Florida was fifth, with Laurent
tied for sixth place. In breed se-
lection, the team tied for sixth

mercilessly' drubbed the United
States for Its Foreign Policy,
the theme of his remarks being
that the U. S. had done nothing
right and the U. S. S. R. had
done almost nothing wrong.
Ward's moral was that we should
accede to the demands of Rus-
sia more often and with less
Ward took a pessimistic view-
point of the present situation when
he stated that World War III
is envitable unless the U. S. dras-
tically changes its foreign policy.
To this Phipps replies, "Neither
then or at any later time was it
suggested that World War III
could be averted by a change in
Russia's foreign policy.
Phipps does not agree with Dr.
Ward's objection to Universal Mil-
itary Training. Ward says that we
would be indoctrinating our sol-
diers against Russia, while Phipps
states that Russia is doing the
same thing with their men, and
they only get to hear one side of
the argument.
Dismissing the border war-
fare in Greece as of no conse-
quence and also the idea that
the Russians desire world domi-
nat'on, Ward stated that we
should sit with Russia and ask
what manner of government she
desires for Europe in order that
we might reach a suitable com-
promise. To find out what type
of government Russia desires,
Ward need only to read the news
of the terror in Czechoslovakia,
states Phlpps.
In conclusion, Ward stated that
some form of socialism would
eventually replace capitalism, but,
as Pipps asks, "Do we have to
endure also the police state that
accompanies the Russian variety ?"

'DreamGirf' Becomes Mother

Quintuplets arrived Monday aft-
ernoon at' the P. K. house, the
mother being a "Pike Dream Girl."
The two facts which set her apart
from past Dream Girls are that
she chose the Pikes instead of
the conventional method generally
employed by the fraternity in their
selection of Dream Girl, and also,
she is a feline four legged, that
According to "Drs." Hutchinson,

The mother is considered by Al

liquidator of rats. When she kills
rats, the atmosphere is not near-

Hutchinson flatly refuses to eat

Elgin White '

You know, every year some stu-
dents gripers are always yelling
about the fact that the University
of Florida doesn't ever have a
championship team. What do they
mean? We got two championship
teams. Count 'em. Yessir, we
might not be a power in football,
basketball, track, baseball, and
other minor sports, but we have
the best billiard team and debate
team in the country.
Can you imagine that? We real-
ly develop bull shooters and pool
sharks at good ole U. of F.!
And how did our billard team
get to be the best in the land?
That's easy. First, they use dy-
namic cue sticks with a super-
lative gyro-cosmic relativator. We
lost our first match because the
cosmic gyroed when it was sup-
posed to relitivate.
Secondly, all the players are
majoring in acoustics. You've met
all the boys I'm sure. There's Leff,
Mac, Bill, Frank, Reat, and Pleat.
Thirdly, all the billiard balls are
constructed with rounded corners
so they will roll when hit. We
refuse to play other teams with
the round billard ball, as our boys
have had it copyrighted.
In the recent National Inter-
collegiate match, our bdys sank
about 498 out of a possible 500
balls. That ain't bad, but Mabie
thinks he could have done a lot
better if they had let him use a
cue stick instead of a ping pong
paddle. Leff was pretty perturbed
about that.
Mac Christie shot 94 out of 100
himself. Mac could have shot the
other six but some spectator
shouted for the eight ball in the
side pocket and Mac couldn't re-
.sist the temptation.
As for our debate team, they're
the tops. We once had a debate
with the Georgia team on "Why
we should eat Spinach," and we
lost. One of our boys didn't like
spinach. He said it stunk. So did
the debate.
However, our team rose to the
heights of glory when we debated
with the Vassar Varsity on the
subject, "The Rise and Fall of
Gooselivered Balloonfluggles." The
Vassar girls didn't know what a
Gooselivered Balloonfluggle was,
and our boys didn't give a d-. So
we won. The girls were prejudiced.
So, if anyone tells you we don't
have a championship team in any-
thing, just tell 'em about our
shooters and sharks. They're tops.

Not Happy About G

Dear bir: ,
A grave situation confronts this
nation obviously fostered by a
group of knuckle-heads 'ho never
served in the army. These vocifer-
ous but lack-brained individuals
are continually raising hues-and-
crfes on all sides proposing to
"draft" this general or that gen-
eral as president of these wonder-
ful non-military United States.
This presents a problem which
only the veterans of this coun-
try can rectify and I feel that the
veterans here on this campus and
on other campuses throughout this
nation owe a duty to their fellow
Americans (and to the peoples of
the world) to stop them from be-
ing stampeded into such foolish-
Any reasonable man who serv-
ed in the Army for even a short
period of time knows that no gen-
eral in the regular Army is fit
to lead this nation either in war
or in peace. Having been trained to
