Co-op Grocery Great Help
To Wives With Limited $ $
Co-Operation Has Proved It's Worth To
Flavet Men and Women In More Than One Way
By Peggy Clayton
Any student who is having
trouble with the high cost of
groceries can, by paying a $15.50
deposit, become a member of the
student coop grocery venture and
obtain his groceries at lower
This coop organization, begun in
August, 1946 is not just for those
living min Flavet villages or just for
veterans or just for married stu-
dents. It is 'for any registered stu-
dent. All he has to do to join is to
come into the store which is located
in Flavet 1, and pay his member-
ship fee. Only 50c of this money is
retained by the organization, the
other $15 being refunded to the
student on leaving school.
In November, 1946 the store of-
ficially opened with a capital of
Manager Chris Bracewell now
estimates the value of the concern
at $13,000. In its year and a half of
operation, the coop has lowered its
prices from higher than the chain
stores to as low or lower. This
store has the added inducement of
having sales at which all merchan-
dise is offered at a 10% discount
to pay off dividends.
The coop grocery, a non-profit
organization, is not connected with
the University. It operates on a
charter from the state of Florida.
The building -was made.-available
by te state also. It is estimated to
be worth $7,000, and the coop pays
only $1 a year rent.
A board of directors which
meets once a month draws up all
the policies of the organization,
and a meeting of the entire mem-
bership is held twice a year to
elect directors and discuss store
operation. The present board of di-
rectors is composed of: Ben Hig-
gins, president; David Bryant,
vice president; E. B. Griffis, secre-
tary; E. R. Lampp, treasurer;
Gould Sadler; W. K. Davis; Bob
Mills; Phil Dreifus; Don Storms;
and Bill Marker.
There are six full time employ-
ees working in the store at the
present time. The store is pat-
ronized by practically all of the
married students living in the Fla-
vet villages and many others be-

Florida Bankers Association Yesterday
"The fundamental issue in high-

University President J. Hillis Mill-

Bankers Association meeting in
St. Petersburg yesterday.
Dr. Miller said that the educa-
tional demands of veterans, gradu-
ates of high school, and a rising
consciousness of higher education
Were forcing institutions of higher
learning; throughout the country to
expand the field of education, and
that the issue is "whether or not
the people are going to be wise
enough to supply these funds."
He said the issue is no longer
Whether or not there will be sub-
stantial increases in the number of
regular students seeking higher
education after the veterans have
graduated. He quoted census fig-

Relating the issues to Florida,
he said that "the issue in Florida
is not whether or not the Univer-
sity of Florida knows where it is
going, it is downright sure of the
place it wants to fill in this grow-
ing progressive state."
"Rockbottom needs for expan-
sion I have outlined as costing be-,

Along with the amazing figure of 62 per cent of the
student body voting in the elections last Thursday, even in
the rain, some other important figures on the number of
hours students voluntarily spent working at the po.Us and
in counting the votes, should not go by without comment.
Bill O'Neil, in charge of the election day, and Dibk
Broome, in charge of the vote counting, put in excellent
performances throughout the day, and e en into the early
parts of the morning.
These men, as well as all those who helped them, de-
serve much of the credit that Went with the successful
election day. The Burger House and the Nie Nac sent re-

cooperation of off-campus firms with the important elec-
And, above all, the individual students indicated spirit
for student government and for the school by casting the
highest vote ever polled. The final results also indicated
that the voters were thinking before voting, because party

The University Plays Host
The University of Florida's American Institute of
Chemical Engineers are playing host this week to the
Southern Regional Convention of student chapters.
Delegates from eight southern schools arrived Sunday
night to find a smooth-running convention about to start.
The program was planned and organized efficiently, and
it has been presented with ease on the part of the students
Much of the success of this convention goes to William
Steed, Kissimmee, general chairman, and D. W. Spauld-
ing, Jacksonville, and J. M. Mallory, Miami. These, and
the remaining committee heads, should be commended on
a job well done.
This University is fast developing its campus, students
and rank among other schools to receive notice from all
over the country. The Alligator clearly sees how impbrt-
ant each organization, each individual is in continuing this
good work in building up our position among schools.

4 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA ALLIGATOR, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7, 1948
By Julian Clarkson i-
AS THE END of the year, and with it the end of the
intramural slate, draws ever nigh, any suggestions for
changes in the existing intramural program are in order,
although this column feels that the season just completed
has been the most successful yet. The intramural depart-
ment always welcomes comments by students on the ad-
visability of dropping certain sports from its agenda or
adding hew ones, and whenever a majority of those who
participate in the program express a desire to juggle the
slate of sports, a change usually follows in short order.
Only departure from the 1946-47 program made this
year was the elimination of boxing and the substitution in
its place of water basketball. This move has since been en-
dorsed 100 per cent by department officials, after seeing
the aquatic sport go over big in the Frat Leagues. Most
intramural fans have voiced their disappointment that
boxing, one of the more popular spectator sports, is no
longer included, but the great amount of conditioning re-
quired and the high degree of susceptibility to injury are
strong arguments against reintroducing that sport.
Many intramural teams have inquired about the feasi-
bility of inserting billiards into the program. But anytime
that question is raised, fraternity teams quickly pay their
respects to Leff Mabie, Delta Tau Delta, with a vociferous
"No!" Coach Cherry invariably brushes aside the question
by objecting that "everyone would be practicing the whole
year for that one sport."
NOBODY THOUGHT THEY could.do it when the
tournament started but the ATO nine has waded through
its first three softball contests without being beaten and
the boys from the "Hotel" now need only a win over the
Phi Delts to enter the Orange League finals from the bot-
How they got this far undefeated, no one knows.
Against the bracket favorites, the Pikes, ATO hardly got
the ball out of the infield but bunted Pitcher Tommy Hill
to death and managed to scrape up three runs. Pike hit-
ters, in turn, sent line drives ricocheting off the ATO in-
field all afternoon only to have other infielders scoop up
the ball and throw to first on time again and again.
In their contest with the defending champion. DTD
nine, the ATOs were out-hit seven to four, and lost an
early three-run lead, but by some strange quirk of fate--
aided and abetted by the conversion of two line drives
ticketed for extra bases into double plays- they walked
home with a 4-3 win tucked away.
SPE, rated a weak sister, came next and actually out-
hit the favored team, five to three. Score ? ATO 4, SPE 3.
You're right, Charlie May and Co., that final score is
the only thing that counts.
THE BATTLE GOING ON in the Independent League
between the All Stars and Hell Cats is probably the most
colorful duel in the entire intramural program. Each
team likes nothing better than a win over the other and
the fur usually flies when they get together.
The Stars held a 532-501 bulge over the Cats at the
halfway mark, but it took the Cats practically no time
after the second session began to vault into first place by
virtue of their acquisition of the bowling title. By winning
softball, however, the Stars regained their foremost posi-
tion and at present they hold an 854-838 lead over their
The lead could change hands again following the
volleyball finals provided the Cats can beat Seagle in the
semis and then top the Stars in the payoff round.

Taking to the road for the sec-
ond time this season, Florida's
baseball team headed westward
yesterday to Mississippi where
they will play Mississippi State
and Ole Miss in a four-game se-
Currently boasting a won and
lost record of two and two, the
Gators will be out to rise above
the .500 mark for the first time
this season. Bobby (Wrinkles)
Adams and Charlie Edwards,
Orange and Blue hurlers, teamed
up last Saturday at Cuscaden
Park in Tampa to handcuff the
University of Tampa Spartans,
Ole Miss Skunked
Ole Miss, the Gators' foe on
Wednesday and Thursday, was'
shut out 6-0 recently on some
brilliant twirling by Graham Nix-
on of Auburn, who fanned 19
Mississippi batsmen in garnering
the win for the Plainsmen.
Those making the trip are: In-
fielders Bobby Forbes, Don Ford,
Bill Reynolds, Willis Whittington
and Bob Fielding; Pitchers Jim
Hurst, Fred Montsdeoca, Jack
Gaines, Bobby Adams, Charlie
Edwards and Andy Bracken; Out-
fielders Dick Stratton, Bill Poole
and Dick Berquist, and Catchers
Jewel Walker and Ted Ramsey-

lowing probable line-up: ib, Bob-

Don Ford; 3b, Willis Whitting-
ton; c, Jewel Walker; If, Bill
Poole; of, Dick Stratton, and rf,
Jack Gaines will be on the
mound in the opener against Ole
Miss. Adams, Montsdeoca and
Hurst will probably draw start-
ing assignments in the remaining
three games while Bracken and
Edwards will be utilized-for relief
The Gator nine will make the
long trip home next Sunday and
will spend the first of next week
preparing for games with the
strong Rollins College squad at
home on April 16 and 17.
Baby Gators Swamp
Mreen Cove Navy
In Opener, 13-4
Sparked by the heavy hitting of
catcher Roy Poole, Gainesville,
Florida's frosh baseball team ran
over the Green Cove Springs Navy
team ;13-4 Monday there in the
season opener for the Baby Ga-
Robbie Williams, Haines City,
pitched all the way and hurled
a neat five hitter and sent six Blue
rackets back to the plate after
swinging three times. Poole help-
ed his battery mate's cause by
pounding three singles and one
double for a perfect day at bat.
The McCachren coached fresh-
men scored seven times in the
opening frame and won easily as
the Navy infielders committed er-
rors at the wrong times and the
rosh hit at the right times.
The Baby Gators will play
Gainesville High on Fleming Field
next Tuesday afternoon for their
first home game.

Led by Doug "Buddy" Fowlkes,
a powerful Georgia Tech track ag-
gregation administered a decisive
87 1-6 to 37 5-6 defeat to the
Orange and Blue cindermen Satur-
day. The Tech squad took 11 of the
first place positions.
Fowlkes, who was high point
man in last year's Southeastern
Conference meet, posted wins in
the 100, 220, 220 low hurdles, and

A little poem from the Griffin
Last night I held a lovely hand,
A hand so soft and neat,
I thought my heart would burst
So wildly did it beat.
No other hand unto my heart
Could greater solace bring;
For the hand I held last night
Four aces and a king.
With Two Wins
By Sandy Schnier
Florida net men made a clean
sweep of victories last week-end,
toppling the Moccasins of Florida
Southern, 7-1, and the Stetson
University Hatters, 7-2, to give
the Gators a four won, one lost
record before mid-season.
In downing the Moccasins for
the second time, the Schnellmen
won every match but one. South-
ern's-Bryan Meharg downed Bob
Riggins, 6-2, 6-2 in the number
one singles. Co-captain Harry Ter-
rell (F) dropped the first set to
George Winchell (FS) 4-6, and
trailed, 2-5, in the second before
Winchell blew completely and Ter-
rell caught up to win eleven
straight games and cop the sets,
George Hills, Gator shotput
artist and SEC titleholder, won
his specialty against Tech and will
be favored to lead the field in the
dual meet with Georgia.
Florida Nine Downs
Tampa Spartans 4-3
For Second Victory
Steady pitching, timely hitting
and air-tight fielding gave the
Florida Gators a hard-earned 4-3
win over the Tampa Spartans in
the Cigar City last Saturday for
their second win.
Bobby Adams, ace right-hander,
supplied the pitching as he doled
out six scattered hits to the Tam-
pans. Dick Stratton and Bobby
Forbes provided most of the of-
fensive punch with a homer and
triple respectively, while the whole
squad backed up Adams' hurling
with their first nine innings of er-
The Gators jumped into the lead
in the second inning when they
notched a single tally and they
held a 1-0 lead until the last half
of the sixth when the Spartans
tied it up.
Florida pushed back into the
lead in their half of the seventh
with a two-run burst that was
featured by Stratton's four-base
clout, his second hit of the day.
Tampa came rightback with
another run in this same inning
and the Gators' lead was once
again cut to one slim run.
Bobby Forbes iced the game in
the eighth when, with Whitsel
Whittington on base, he walloped
a long three-bagger to right field.
The Spartans added another mark-
er in the bottom of. the eighth but
it wasn't quite enough.
Florida looked like a different
ball club than the one which boot-
ed that little round, white object
around so freely during the sea-
son's first three games.

Coach Frank Genovar, whose
reputation of turning out crack
swimming teams didn't exactly
dwindle any this year, will lose the
services of only one man-Bill
Harlan, Gator captain-and will,
from all indications, have an over-
abundant supply of water-seeking
candidates to strengthen his team
in the departments it was weak in
this year. Harlan, who led his
poolmates to a second place in the
Southeastern Conference and a la-
ter conquest of the conference
champions, will graduate this
In Friday night's meet, a strong
Miami team, overloaded with indi-
vidual standouts, held on to an
early lead picked up in the first
event and, taking five first places
out of a possible nine, went on to
outpoint their upper-state rivals
by nine markers.
Johnny Jorgenson, age-old ruler
of Southern pools, garnered firsts
in both the 220 and 440-yard
events to take high-scoring hon-
ors. Jorgenson out-touched Flor-
ida's Bill Pepper in both races,
making the Gainesville lad's third
defeat in 11 meets in the 440.
The 100-yard swim saw Flor-
ida's Lou Brown outswim Miami's
Shisbey by a decisive margin to
become the only undefeated Gator
swimmer in a single event this
season. A freshman this season,
Brown copped the SEC 100-yard
title, broke the Georgia Tech pool
record, and shattered the Florida
pool mark twice-the second time

be Charles C. Peterson and Andrew
Ponzi, both of whom were once
world titleholders. Mr. Peterson is
now regarded as the greatest trick
shot artist in the world. Both
men will give exhibitions Satur-
day night at 8:15.
Defending champion in both the
pocket and three cushion divisions
is Florida's Leff Mabie, who has
dominated the national scene for
several years. Now a senior in
law school from Lakeland, Mabie
first copped the national pocket
billiards title in 1943, and after
spending several years in the air
corps, returned last spring to the
nationwide tourney and added the
three-cushion crown to his string,
Mabie cracked a 15-year-old
record recently in the telephonic
qualifying tourney by chalking up
a perfect score of 100x100 in poc-
ket competition. An early release
of the list of contestants for the
forthcoming tournament showed
the Florida star entered in only
the pocket division, but according
to reports, the tournament com-
mittee has placed Mabie in three
cushion play as well, allowing him
to defend both his titles.
Mabie's toughest opposition in
the pocket division is expected to
come from Jack Brown of the
University 'of Utah. Brown com-
piled a 99x100 score in the tele-
phonic tourney to finish on the

Jack Borling (F) scored a 6-3,
6-4 victory over Clem Hopp (FS),
in a hard-fought battle which re-
sulted in two tired young men,
for both played a fast slamming
brand of tennis. Reece Cooper (F)
had to go three sets to take Whiz
Tolle, (FS), 6-4, 5-7, 6-0.
Joe Dunayer (F) and Marshall
Feld (FS) supplied the comedy in
their 2 1-2 hour marathon match
of 35 games. Dunayer finally won,
7-9, 6-3, 6-4 by getting Feld ex-
hausted. The short Mr. Dunayer
would first attempt drop shots,
within the chunky Mr. Feld follow-
ing suit. Then they'd both break
out in series of long lofty lobs.
Both made several desperation
shots from the dirt where they
had slipped, but Dunayer capital-
ized on Feld's weaknesses and
won the match.
Frank Wood (F) defeated Sam
Gregg (FS), 6-3, 6-2 in a fine
performance by both men.
Terrell and Bill Oughterson were
forced to go three sets before
beating Meharg and Hopp (FS)
8-6, 1-6, 11-9 in another long af-

match to Pinky Zipprer (S), 6-2,

them. Reece Cooper (F) launch-
ed a cool attack by staying in
back court and letting Stetson
player, Bob Harris make points
for him. Cooper won, 6-0, 6-2.
Joe Dunayer (F) won easily,
6-2, 6-0 over Bruce Perkins (S)
and Bill Oughterson outclassed

off Terrell and Oughterson (F)
