UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA. GAINESVILLE. PLORIDA
Carnival Plans Roll As
Flags Of Sister
On Plaza Today
The galaxy of brightly colored
flags, designating each of the 21
republics of Latin America, that
greet the eyes of the students this
morning on the Plaza of the Amer-
icas commemorated the proclama-
tion of "Pan American Day."
Today is celebration day for
the Pan American Union, which
Is honoring its 58th anniversary.
April 14th is celebrated through-
out all the Americas as -Pan
American Day, and each flag on
the Plaza of the Americas has
been placed over the concrete
marker of the respective coun-
try for which it stands.
An international organization
created and maintained by the 21
American Republics, the P an
American Union was originally
known as the International Bu-
reau of the American Republics,
established in 1890 in accordance
with a resolution passed at a
Washington convention in 1889.
The first Latin American con-
ference was attributed to the work
of Simon Bolivar, great South
American Liberator, and although
America wds invited, one of her
envoys died en route, and the oth-
er arrived late.
Although t Is a Florida tradi-
tion that a freshman cannot
walk across the Plaza of the
Americas, tradition will prob-
ably be broken today in order to
allow each freshman to enjoy
the history of each country that
will be placed under its respec-
tive tree on the Plaza.
As part of the observance of
Pan American Day, Los Picaros de
Quevedo, Spanish honorary fra-
ternity has changed its weekly
movies to today instead of Thurs-
day. The program, consisting of
two films, "Americans All," and
"Our Neighbors Down the Road,"
will be held in Florida Union au-
ditorium at 8 p.m. The members
of Los Picaros invite all to attend.
A reception will be held in Bryan
Lounge after the movies. Refresh-
ments will be served.
Local Los Picaros
Group Was Founder
Chapters Now Located
At Florida Southern,
F. S. U., And Tampa
In the spring of 1933, students
and members of the faculty of the
University of Florida, realizing the
social, cultural, and commercial
advantages to be derived through
the familiarity with and the fre-
quent use of the Spanish tongue,
established the first Honorary
Spanish Fraternity, "Los Picaros
de Quevedo" on the campus.
Since then, Los Picaros has
paved the way for interpreting
Latin American culture to Amer-
ican students through social and
cultural activities. Los Picaros es-
tablished de "Cervantes" chapter
at Florida Southern College in
1940. Then in February, 1947, "Los
Picaros de Lope de Vega," was
founded at Florida State Univer-
sity, and "Los Picaros de Calder-
on" will be establia-ed in the near
future at the University of Tampa.
These are the first steps toward
founding a state organization
which will foster the culture of
Spain and the Latin American
countries, and Los Picaros hopes
to extend this fraternity outside of
the State of Florida. The fraterni-
ty has for its colors Red and Black
and its emblem is the shield of
the Kingdom of Sastillay Leon.

TO THE FACULTY AND STUDENTS OF THE
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA:
In keeping with the purpose of the Pan American
Union of promoting friendship and closer relations among
the republics of the American continents, and through con-
structive cooperation establishing security and peace with-
in the borders of each republic, I, as President of the Uni-
versity of Florida, do hereby proclaim Wednesday, April
4, 1948, as PAN AMERICAN DAY on the University of
Florida Campus. Further, I hereby urge the fullest co-
operation with the INTER AMERICAN INSTITUTE and
LOS PICAROS DE QUEVEDO in emphasizing the pur-
pose and importance of PAN AMERICAN DAY and a
proper observance thereof.
J. Hillis Miller
President, University of Florida
Message To The Student Body
Today, I feel. that everyone should take a few seconds to think
,about our neighbor countries. We are close geographically, but yet far
apart. In that respect we are like the Europeans. But in contrast we
have not the unrest resulting from such a proximity. This unrest must
not happen in our hemisphere. We must strive to maintain unity, trust
and friendship among the Republics of the American Continents.
Through the many Pan-American organizations we have kept this
unity of purpose. Every day more and more interest is, shown by the
desire of our people to become acquainted with the Latin American
Countries. That is why I want all to think more seriously of the pur-
pose of the Pan-American Union. Los Picaros de Quevedo is one of
many Pan-American organizations through which all can cooperate
to establish a better relationship with cur neighbors.
Los Picaros at present is offering Spanish booster classes to
those Who are interested in conversational Spanish. They are also pre-
senting weekly motion pictures which depict typical Latin-American
customs and traditions.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the Spanish
department, especially to Dr. Francis Hayes and Mr. Pedro V. Fer-
nandez and also to the newly organized Pan-American Club for their
fine cooperation. I also would like to extend our many thanks to Pen
Gaines, the Alligator Staff, Mrs. Betty Winchester of Station WGGG
and to all those who have so generously contributed in our efforts for
better Pan-American relations.
BUSINESS MANAGER ANNOUNCES PLANS
Construction Of New Student
Exchange To Start Next Month
$225,000 Building To House Book Store,
Soda Shop, Post Office, And Dance Hall
By Jack Shoemaker
Plans for the proposed Student
Exchange Building which have
been smoldering for nearly isix
weeks suddenly burst into flame
Monday as Business Manager
George F. Baughman announced
that construction of the project
would probably start in May.
This building, which is intend-
ed to relieve the congestion of
the Florida Union, will be locat-
ed on Stadium Road behind
Temporary Building E. Costing
$225,000, It will house a book
store, soda shop and a post of-
fice on the first floor.
Working in cooperation with the
United States Postal Service, the
University announced that the
new post office will consist of an
approximate area of 4,000 square
feet. It will be a first class sta-
tion completely .modernized in all
details befitting a service of much
importance to the people here on
the campus. This post office will,
adequately meet the demands and
needs of the students being served
by the present one.
The soda shop, consisting of
5,500 square feet in area, will be
the last word .in modern design.
Bqoths will take the place of the
chairs and tables in use at the
present fountain. The new foun-
tain bar, one of the latest models,
will enable the waiters and wait-
resses to serve the customers
quickly and efficiently. In keep-
ing with the tastes of the younger
generation, juke-boxes will fur-
nish the music while the students
eat and drink in this air-condi-
tioned shop. The kitchen will be
an up-to-date cooking and dis-
persing agent for the sandwiches'
and pastries that will fulfill the
students' needs for a quick lunch
The 7,500 square feet of area
that will make up the book
store Will help to outmode the
system of waiting in line to re-
ceive books and, supplies. Dis-
play cases will enable all stu-
dents to see the items that they
need or would like to have be-
fore they buy them. Service
which has been, at times, slow
in the present- book store will
be speeded up to meet the nec-
essary demands of a large stu-
dent enrollment on the book-
store and its personnel.
The second floor of this build-
ing will consist of three separate
sections which, by means of fold-
ing plastic doors, can be opened
into one huge dance floor of a
20,300 square foot area. The press,
ent University dance hall-the
new gymnasium-has only 11,000
square feet of area. Two modern
rest rooms and check rooms will
also be constructed on this floor
as well as an outdoor balcony.
The ventilation system will'be aid-
ed by scores of windows situated
on all sides of the building. It will
be more than an ideal place to
dance, for during intermissions
the dancers will be able to step
below to an air-conditioned soda
shop and order their favorite
drink and snack.
The double-laning of Stadium
Road will aid immensely in this
new project by combining a
modern roadway with a modern
building. A paved parking lot,
tentatively planned to accom-
modate 50 cars, will be con-
structed behind this student
service center. Other parking
lots will also be built as they

Walker wrote a letter to the Al-

while many students did register,
a large number still have not. In
his second letter, Walker writes:
"If it could be assumed that
the rest of the 5,000 students
estimated to be eligible to vote

cause for alarm. I feel, how-

The construction hut used by the
Paul H. Smith Construction Com-
pany will be renovated for use as
a recreation hall, in which will
be staged dances, meetings, and
other social affairs. The area be-
tween the present rifle range and
the Flavet area will serve as a
playground after all the under-
growth is cleaned out and burn-
ed. Within this section there will
also be a pit for barbecues and
After the rifle range is moved
to its new position; the whole plot
of ground leading into Flavet III
will be completely landscaped and
all roads will be paved.
All this is being done to make
the grounds meet the standards of
the apartment units themselves.
All units have been painted, and
over $300 has been spent for gar-
den tools which the people living
in these units will use in starting
their gardens. Several bags of
seeds have been bought for the
use of these people who will grow
vegetables to help in the saving of
money for food.

No Strain, No Pain Or No Gain ?
This is a startling editorial, mainly because the state-
ments in its are startling.
The reason we quote Dean William B. Baer of the New
York University College of Arts and Pure Science here is
because the calendar on the wall shows less than six more
weeks of classes. With the knowledge that more and more
work will begin piling up on the students, the Alligator
quotes. And, too, the Alligator realizes that mpre and
more work will be piled upon the students within the next
Dean Baer asserts that people now consider college a "marathon."
He wonders if these minds can stand the strain and will know any-
thing when they finish their marathon.
He also pointed out that a faculty member who works
conscienciously in the classroom during a 10-month aca-
demic year'needs time for private investigation, travel, re-
search and rest.
With this keyed-up tempo here possibly causing less achievement.
and "plenty of wear and tear on. both students and professors," stated
one editorial recently, "it might be a good .time to wonder if it's the
Dean Baer might be right-that we should cut down In order to
accomplish more with what is available, or Is he wrong?
This college newspaper editorial, quoted above, states
lastly: "Through too much emphasis on the books our
students lose a certain part of their life which their fathers
could look back on and say, 'Those were the good old
Will there ever be an agreement on ihis subject ?
The Real Pan American Union
The respect and admiration which we on the campus of
the University of Florida feel toward our South American
neighbors has been materially emphasized by the Plaza of
the Americas, but on this, Pan American Day, we want to
again impress upon the Latin American students among
us the feeling of genuine brotherhood and friendship that
exists between their countries and ours. Through this unit-
ed organization between our nation and those to the south
of us we can attain a peace and security that will go a
long way in making the whole world a better place in
which to live.
Each year the American Cancer Society solicits funds
from various sources to continue the great fight against
one of the worst diseases that afflicts mankind. This year,
Florida students are again asked to do their part in con-
tributing to this cause.
The generosity of Florida students has been proven in
the past, and we,feel that there will be no slacking in this,
drive against cancer. This is one of the two money-making
drives backed by your student government, and it is
worthy of every effort on the part of every student.

University City and a good night
to stay in your room and catch
up on unfinished business, like
a column called BY JINGO B'Y
JOHNS First, this letter re-
ceived last month: "Dear Barton
Johns, I wonder if you could give
me some information? I want to
know why Gainesville can't have
more pictures earlier? I know lots
of little towns that get movies
quicker. How long will it take to
get pictures like A DOUBLE LIFE,
SO WELL REMEMBERED, YOU

OF TRIUMPH, and many others?
I do not .know the set-up here
in Gainesville, but I feel sure that
the manager could do better. Sin-
cerely, W. L. Matteson." Be kind
to Mr. Roberts; he would be glad
to book pictures simu / neously
with New York City. he would
be glad to grab a few of the pic-
tures that open weekly in Miami.
Theater managers are slow to re-
alize the value of foreign movies.
This has been true all over the
country. But they know the value
of first-run pictures. Mr. Roberts
is in there, ready to grab any
early booking that comes his way
Gloria Palter and Greta An-
dron have been asking to see
their names in print. It seems
they keep a scrap book. Hailing
from the Deeper South (Miami),

last week which I am going to
squeeze in for your "reading pleas-
ure:" "Trans Continent Western

Letters To The Editor
Hardee Thanks Students
I cannot express to you how greatly gratified I am for the loyal
support that ypu gave to me in the recent election campaign. Since it
would take quite a while to get around and personally thank each of
you who worked so hard for me, I hope that I may use this medium
to express my sincere gratitude for all that you did. ,
Now that the election is over, however, I hope that we can put
aside all of the prejudices that are the natural outgrowth of any poli-
tical campaign and work together with our new student government to
serve the University in the coming year. This year student government
will have many very important jobs to do which will affect each of 'us.
The success of our government will be measured by the interest
and active participation that each of us show in its program on the
campus, downtown and at the legislature. Let us resolve to do all in
our power to make this next year the most successful that we have
known, by whole-heartedly cooperating with the student government
that we have chosen to do the things which we expect of it, and to
protect the future of the University and the student body.
Thank you again for your loyal support.

Ghost Or Not A Ghost
Dear Mr. Gaines:
In the past few weeks A STUDENT has buen accused of every-
thing from threatening the editor of the Alligator to sabotaging the
new, new gym.
The latest is the claim that A STUDENT is a ghost writer for the
Varsity Party., The accusation is false! It is evidently based on an
overripe imagination on the part of someone along with the single
fact that A STUDENT and the chairman of the Varsity Party are
members of the same fraternity and do, at times, use the same type-
The court states that "any publication b3 printing or writing or
by signs or pictures which. ,accuses a person of a. crime, or blackens
his character, or tends to expose him to public ridicule, contempt or
hatred is libelous" and commissionn of the name of the person whose
character is damaged is no defense."
I am not, however, going to scream "libel.' I just want to take
away your dart-board.
Now, should the new Chemistry Building fall down don't blame
a name. See me. I'll give you a scoop.
(Richard M Ritter)
Editor's Note: The article last week stated "and he was
Identified as a ghost writer .. The writer of the story or the
Alligator did not claim you were a ghost writer, but you were identi-
fied by both the chairman and co-chairman of the new party as a
person who has written material for them. You should have check-
ed with them and have them keep the identity down, If you did not
want the identity known.

Certainly they devote. more hours
of practice to their organization

Our vocal outfit stacks up pret-

clarity of line you'll probably find
them almost unmatched. Some-
times, I think they bend ver back-

grams by any kind of loud and
boisterous singing, which is all
right, but I do wish they would
open up occasionally. On the
breakdown sheet I find that song
number 11, "Can't Yo Hear Me
Moanin', Lord," does give them
a chance for a real fortissimo.
May-be we'll hear it.

Early To Bed
Well before the spring holiday
migration, I was sitting alone on
a bench on the Plaza of the Amer-

as a witch's nightgown, and mist
was rising from behind the orange
groves. The fog pervaded the
dampened air and swirled and
curled among the trees on the
Suddenly the' bench began to
shake and tremor. A shrill voice
piped out from under one of the
slats. "C'mon, bud," it said, "take
off. Blow. This is my bench."
"Whaddya mean, your bench?"
I said to the empty air. "Where
are you, anyway?"
With an unearthly shriek, a
creature popped up that might
have been a Florida man's night-
mare. It was green, this figment
of the night, green with slide-rules
for arms, legs made from black-
board pointers and head shaped
like a bottle of Pabst.

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA ALLIGATOR, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14, 1948
By Julian Clarkson
VARSITY SWIMMERS WON'T be able to compete in
the forthcoming intramural tank meet, but still there's a
strong possibility that two or three of the existing records
may fall when swimmers from all four leagues take to
the water next week in the four-day tank marathon.
Threats to the present intramural pool marks will
come largely from the frosh ranks with Sigma Nu's cap-
able Eddie Glass rated as the best bet to surpass top times
of other years. All meinbers of the freshman swimming
team will be eligible to take part in the meet since no com-
petition was scheduled this year for the Gator first year
Sigma Nu has another freshman star in Bill McGrath,
diver de luxe who doubles in the breaststroke. With Glass,
who performs in the backstroke and free style endurance
races, McGrath, Skipper Smith, a breaststroker remem-
bered for his accomplishments during the water basket-
ball tourney, and several more outstanding free stylists,
the Snakemen will enter the Orange League meet as heavy
favorites to wrest the swim title from Phi Delta Theta.
.. The Independent League boasts one tankman who can
keep up with the best of them in Johnny Pandak, another
versatile freshman swim star who'll attract a lot of atten-
tion when Thursday's finals roll around. Pandak was an
All-American swimmer in high school.
ALL OF THE EXISTING intramural pool marks are
recorded as having been established in 1947 due to the
fact that last year was the first occasion on which winning
times have been preserved. However, many of those times
may very easily stand for quite a few years since they were
Set, for the most part, by varsity swimmers, who were
eligible for competition under last year's mural by-laws.
In the '47 meet Bill Pepper, now a Gator endurance
star, copped the 220 free style race for PDT in 2:37.5,
while another Phi Delt, Billy Bracken, current SEC diving
titleholder, easily walked off with his specialty, chalking
up 45.3 points on five dives. Bracken and Pepper also
swam on the winning PDT 200 free style relay quartet,
which won in 1:49.6.
Sam Rideout, an Orange and Blue breaststroker this
season, took the 50 free style for Phi Kappa Tau in 26
flat. Tom Brown, 1948 Gator backstroker, breezed to a
first in the 100 free style for the Ph; Gams in 58.6. Sigma
Chi took the other two frat firsts which went down as rec-
ords, and Mullen of Crane Hall won the breaststroke in
34.6 to set the lone Independent record.

Florida Wins First SEC Game From Ole Miss,

Florida's baseball team traveled to Mississippi last
