Board Of Control, Dr. Miller

Approve Campus Road Paving

Work To Double-Lane Stadium Road
Is Scheduled To Begin In July

By. Jack Shoemaker
Plans for widespread paving of
roads and paved parking lots have
been drawn up and approved by
the Board of Control and Presi-
dent Miller. According to the Bus-
iness Managef's office, work will
be started on this program in July.
-Florida State Road Depart-
ment has appropriated $107,000
to the University for the paving
of some roads, the widening of
others, and the making of paved
parking lots. This item of money
Is to be used for the coming
calendar year.
The Department of Public Safe-
ty has checked the recommenda-
tions of the University in the re-
construction of these roads and
the building of parking lots.
First on the list for reconstruc-
tion is the double-laning of Sta-
dium Road from Ninth Street to
the Flavet I area. This section has
been the cause of many near acci-
dents and traffic jams. At p-esent
the road is too narrow to permit
the traffic of pedestrians and cars
alike. Double-laning this road-
similar to the roadway which ex-
tends off Masonic Road from
Ninth Street leading into the cam-

pus-will erase and eliminate
many of these occurances.4 Also,
after the Student Exchange Build-
ing is finished, traffic will be
greatly increased on this road and
a double lane will be necessary.
Another roadway scheduled
for renovation is the one leading
from Murphree Hall south of the
tennis courts down to the drill
field road. All holes and ditches
will be filled in, and the paving
will destroy the possibility that
the rains will wash out the road.
Because of the certainty that
dust will harm the precision in-
struments housed in the Engineers'
hangar, this whole area will be
paved. Parking lots will be con-
structed in appropriate places
throughout the section to accom-
modate the students and instruc-
tors meeting in this building.
Actual construction on these
projects will begin as soon as the
engineers who will be sent down
to make surveys complete their
work. Bids will then be asked;
contracts will be let and the roads
will undergo their transformations.
After these roads are completed,
others will be started and the
whole campus traffic system will
be brought up to a high standard.

Ghiotto Gives Views On Duties

"I promise to keep all students
informed of the happenings of the
Student Government. They will
know what we have done, and
they will know what we have
failed to do."

endorsed by the All-Student -and

Being president of the student
body is a difficult job, and Ghi-
otto realizes this. Nevertheless,
next September, he will step into
John Crews' shoe and attempt to

keep up the rapid progress of the
"It is my sincere hope," said
Ghiotto "that the Executive Coun-
cil will forget party lines and
work for better government for
the students as a whole. The
other four members of the "Big
Five" have given me their prom-
ise to work together."
The "Big Five" Bob Ghiotto,
president ;Earl Faircloth, vice-
president; Cail Lee, secretary-
treasurer; Quentin Long, chan-
cellor of the Honor Court, and
Leon Whitehurst, clerk of the
Honor Court present good qual-
ifications for the offices which
they will hold, and according to
Ghiotto, "we can, and will do a
good job."
"I have always worked for the
independents, and realize that
they elected me this time. I will
continue to work for them," he
Ghiotto plans to streamline the

executive council to take up as
little time as possible in doing its
duty efficiently. He will set up
a Finance Committee which will
handle all routine requisitions.
This committee will work in co-

A public relations program -
giving publicity to the student
body and to the student govern-
ment will be set up, and the
"Committee of 67" will be reor-
ganized to keep pressure on the
State Legislature from home
towns and counties throughout
Florida. A legislative program,
aiming for better housing and
building rehabilitation, will be
carried out assisting Dr. Miller in
the same campaign.
Other programs which Ghiotto
will attempt to develop are: to
introduce a better program for
Veterans affairs; to appoint a
Secretary of Women's Affairs in

an aim to improve the position of
the coeds on the campus; to start
the operation of a campus laun-
dry a "difficult assignment;
one in which I will need the co-
operation of the entire student
body; to make the Spring Carni-
val one of the biggest and best
social events at the University;
to get drinking fountains and
curtains for Temporary Dormitory
residents, and to set up a sched-
ule of office hours when he can
be contacted; and to investigate
the possibilities of a University-
owned printing plant.
"In a few words of thanks for
those who gave him their votes
Ghiotto concluded his interview
by saying, "I want to express my
appreciation for the honor bestow-
ed upon me. I feel as if the stu-
dents placed in my hands a trust

At The Unit
All former Navy radiomen are
invited to attend an "open house"
in the Naval Reserve Training
Center at Alachua Air Base Tues-
day night between the hours of
6:30 and 9 o'clock.
Transportation will be provided
from the University right to 'the
Naval Reserve Unit by a Univer-
sity bus which runs to Alachua
Air Base. This bus leaves from
the southeast corner of Murphree
dormitory (facing the old gym)
and leaves every 20 minutes be-
fore the hour. This bus also leaves
the airbase and runs to the Uni-
versity ten minutes after the hour
every hour.
A new radio station K4NAP is
now in operation at the Reserve
Unit and will probably be of great
interest to all those who are inter-
ested in radio.
In the near future this station
will be available to all organized
reserve men for use in the Navy

Did you Over stop to think
that if every fraternity at Florida
had some kind of a mnascott, and
that if all these pets were lined up
on University avenue for an intra-
mural race, what a sight it would
Don't ponder. It can't happen,
because some of the houses aren't
represented this season. So, they
won't be running at University
this year. except for Johnny.
A small, sudden swish of fur
chases young ladies down Univer-
sity avenue almost every day. This
is Johnny. a brown and white six
month old pup from the T.E.P.
hose. His owner Leonard *.H;,* i.
says that he is a Manchester Ter-
rier and was named Johnny when
it dawned that no other pledge had
that name.
He ignoranti- awaits his first
initiation, but as all good mascots,
he waits in style. His room, with
bath, is pretty quite lately, for
Johnny has been frequenting The
Orange and Blue Cafe. There he
had his first brew, only to decide
that he preferred cokes. And he
still does. If he isn't making a
trip to Daytona Beach, Miami, or
Jacksonville, he will ,probably be
somewhere practicing his time
scarred profession, setting up .and
begging favors from the men who
swear that they can't win their
games without him.
In the mascot field, a more con-
ventional competitor is D.T.D.'s
Rex. Rex is a Great brown Dane.
He says that Buddy Carter, his
master, has made him an old col-
ege man at the tender age of
Just to be appropriate, P.K.P.
has named its orange. "He is a
good cat," says one of .the men, as
he fades back about a year to a
road trip, and a guy who wondered
if "Pi" could catch Gainesville
mice. He can.
In the afternoon a brown and

white dog sits out in front of the
P.K.A. house and gazes scornfully
at the street where Bob Stevens
found him. He gazes this way be'
cause . he enjoys it, and he
enjoys it quite a lot. For a pooch
that has finagled a choice spot in
the ffirnace room, has made wait-
ers out of the cooks, and that
knows too well the effects of good
beer and bourbon, he needs no
. .il',,'U. Maybe he needs an
extra house!
Bill Ebersole's small, black Sig-
ma-of the Chi family-operates
only six inches above the floor.
This doesn't seem to matter to
Sigma, however, and the men are
busy many of their days trying to
teach him one of the more pro-
found social graces.
Did you see any Chi Phi's sport-
ing highly polished tin cans during
hell week? You probably didn't,
but if you noticed any of their
pledges up to such stuff, you
might want'a' know that the cans
were food for their national sym-
bol, the goat. C.P.'s Billy has been
temporarily misplaced. It might
wander back someday. But the
pledges pray not, for they can't
afford to have any dents in those
tin mirrors.
Of course, everyone knows that
the K.A. basement is literally
littered with frogs every time it
rains. Perhaps this is where the
'Gator gets his dinner ... but
that's what the K.A.'s claim.

A Good Thing
With the article purchased and
in use, you begin to think, "what
a fine idea these bulletin boards
are. .1 don't know what I'd do
without them." And you wouldn't
be far from stating the opinion of
the whole student body.
tFrom the more serious side of
the matter, the bulletin boards
on the campus serve a great
purpose, that of giving various
information needed in the com-
'plex college life of the day.
Perhaps the book store is out
of a certain book that you need
in a course Looking' on the bul-
letin board you find a copy of
the book you need offered for
sale at a reasonable price.
All Items
Besides the various texts and
tools of schooling which are to be
found for sale, household items
such as washing machines, irons,
lamps, bab) strollers, tables, and
even houses are advertised. Or if
you are interested in the outdoor
world a motorcycle, convertible
automobile, rifle, rowboat, bi-
cycle, outboard motor, pistol, ten-
nis raquet, or pair of track shoes
might be just what you are look-
ing for.
Of key interest to faculty mem-
bers and students is the Orange
and Blue Bulletin which appears
every Monday, Wednesday and
Friday during the the school year.
This mimeographed publication of
the University contains impor-
tant notices of exams, meetings,
athletic events, lost and found
notices and other necessary infor-
To those who are interested in
contests and scolarshlps oi all
sorts, from designing women's
fashions to writing slogans and
essays, much material value
may be realized from the infor-
mation afforded by these var-
ious notices.
If you, plan any- trips, look on
the special bulletin board in the
lobby of Florida Union between
the Soda Shop and the Billiards
.Room for notices of "Passengers

Cards for posting such informa-
tion may be obtained at the main

Five Floridian

Delegates Attend

Wallace Meeting
Five University of Florida stu-
dents were among the delegation
of 16 from Florida's colleges who
attended the National Students
for Wallace convention at the
University of Chicago April 7-8.
At the convention, in which the
South was well represented, re-
ports on activities were made
from colleges and universities
throughout the. nation and plans
were drawn up to combat compul-
sory military training and con-
scription and to urge a return to
the United Nations.
Friday evening the Florida stu-
dents attended a political lecture
by Dr. Frederick L. Schuman,
foremost American international
relations authority, who expressed
his belief that ."Wallace is the
only hope of the U. S. and per-
haps of mankind." The students
met the author of "International
Politics" later in the evening, at
which time he made a joking re-
mark as to the reception of his
forthcoming fourth edition may
receive on the Florida campus.
The next afternoon the South-
ern delegation joined the lines of
meat packing workers who were
faced with a Taft-Hartley act in-
Rollins, Stetson, Miami, Edward
Waters, Tampa U. and the U. of
Florida had students at the con-'
vention. Those attending from the

Needed To Train

Vocally Hindered
America's colleges and universi-
ties must graduate at least 35,000
speech correctionists in the next
*few years if the nation's 4,000,000
vocally handicapped persons are to
receive the retraining that they
need so badly.
This estimate was recently re-
leased by Dr. Martin F. Palmer,
president of the American Speech
and Hearing Association and di-
rector of the Institute of Logo-
pedics in Wichita, Kansas, where
a full curriculum of 62 hours is
now being offered to students in-
terested in speech correction. T-e
eminent speech authority furti r
estimated that there are on.,
about 400 students now enrolled .
speech correction courses. ,
"Few fields currently offer u.i-
dergraduates the professional ,;-
portunities that are offered by t-.
rapidly expanding field of speech
orrection," says Dr. Palmer. "For
the next five or 10 years at least,"
he added, "speech graduates need
not worry about the demand for
their services. Though we prefer
that. instructors devote full time to
this vital work, it is possible for
-them to work with vocally handi-
capped persons during spare time
hours or in addition to household
duties. Scores of speech correc-
tionists now are adding to their
regular incomes by doing part-
time work with speech detectives."

sports writers of the nation, big and little, pick their
choices for the two major leagues. This column is the same
as the others. We had a chance to see a few of the spring
training games and are basing our predictions on what we
saw and what we read.

Naturally there are some people that may think that
I am all wrong and I might be, but these are my views and
I hope they are right.
The two Boston teams are loaded with power plus. The
Red Sox have the greatest array of talent since the Yanks
of the Ruth-Gehrig-Ruffing-Rolfe era. With fellows like
Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, Vern Stephens, Dom DiMag-
gio, Johnny Pesky, Stan Spence, Sam Mele and Birdie Teb-
bets they will be hard to beat. Their pitching is a ques-
tion mark, but Joe Dobson, Mickey Harris, Mel Parnell,
and Jack Kramer looked good in spring games and they
should receive some help from Tex Hughson and Dave
The Boston Braves have a fair hurling staff with War-
ren Spahn and Johnny Sain as their aces. Their batting
power lays in the hands of Bob Elliott, Tommy Holmes,
Torgie Torgenson, Eddie Stanky, Jeff Heath and host of
There is no doubt.that the two teams from Beantown
have the best managers in baseball. Joe McCarthy of the
Red Sox and Billy Southworth of the Braves.
New York and Brooklyn the two runner-ups are going
to be hard to keep out of the series. The Yanks have fair
pitching, but not enough power at the plate. Joltin Joe
Dimaggio is their best, with Snuffy Sternweiss, Phil Riz-
zutto, Tommy Henrich, Yogi Berra and Bobby Brown
lending a hand. Most of the Yanks hopes lay in the hands
of King Kong Keller.
Brooklyn gave away their pennant when they got rid
of Eddie Stanky. At the present time they have no cap-
able first baseman and looks like they will have to move in
Pete Reiser from the outfield. Jack Robinson will be at

The Cincinnati Reds get high position from their show-
ing in the spring with Ewell Blackwell as the top pitcher
in baseball. Philly A's are the dark horse of the American
League. The Indians have Bob Feller and that is about all.
Detroit has a top hurling staff but no hitting. Washing-
ton, Chicago and St. Louis are just in the league.
The St. Louis Cards might finish higher, but they will
have to get some youth if they plan to do so. Slaughter,
Moore and Co. are getting a little weak in the legs. The
Giants have power at the plate, but none on the hill. The
Phillies have improved, but still need more to be a first
division team. Chicago and Pittsburgh are destined for the
cellar. Ralph Kiner might pull the Pirates from the lower
rung, but it is doubtful since the left field bullpen has
been removed from the Pirates home field.

Florida's track Gators will seek
to rise above the fifty-fifty mark
in SEC competition when Missis-
sippi State comes here Saturday
for a 2 o'clock meet. Florida
has wo from Georgia, lost to
Georgia Tech.
It will be the second trip to
Florida in less than a month for
the Maroons, who were on hand
for the Florida Relays in March.
The Maroons, who seem to take
particular pride in winning the
one mile relays in events of this
sort, were second to Minnesota
in the mile at Florida but got
back to their old game to take a
first in the Southern Relays in
Birmingham with a fast 3:23.9
minute run.
State Team
The State combine of J. E.
Wilson, Don Branch, James Conn
and Albert Walters will be spread
over the field in many of the
track events in addition to their
best event, the mile relay.
From the Florida standpoint, Bill
Adams has been working out with
the squad after recovering from a
muscle injury and will have some-
thing to say about the dashes.
The dual between Adams, who
ran the 100 in a record breaking
9.7 seconds in the relays here,
and State's Harper Davis will be
the feature attraction. Davis
consistently does the 100 below
10 seconds.

Carnival Needs Support

The first annual Spring Carnival is only one week
away, and we feel that we are not stepping on anyone's
toes by continuing to urge more cooperation from all sides
in order to put this weekend across.
A few students, after saying fdr weeks that this new
weekend will not work, are now not only failing to chip
in and help, but are passing rumors around that this week-
end will never be a success.
That type of spirit should not last long. We are pleased
to note in the news stories that the newly organized FIC
is stepping in to give the Carnival the spirit it needs. The
name "FIC" is now a reality on this campus after months
of campaigning for it in the Alligator.
What we do not want to see is a split between the inde-
pendents and fraternity maen on this campus. There is no
need for it, politically, socially or otherwise. One thing
that will ruin our student government is for the independ-
ents to form a party and be pitted against the fraternity
men. Such a step would bring disharmony on the campus.
Let's work together to put the best things through.

Urging Everyone To Register

As is the case in every specifically timed instance, the
deadline catches many napping. Saturday is the deadline
in Gainesville for students and citizens alike to register for
the national and state elections. At present writing, only
about 600 students have registered to vote here.
The betterment of the mind in college is usually for the
express purpose of bettering one's self for his future in
life. Yet, the right to vote, one of the main heritages hand-
ed down to all persons in this country, is taken in a very
apathetic attitude by too many people.
We need not reiterate why we fought and won this
latest-war, but we can reiterate the results that will soon
follow by such a lack of interest in our own government.
You choose the men you want to be in office. It's your
right, it's your priviledge, and above all, it's your duty
not only to yourself but to your future. Register and vote!

Do It Now, Do It Well

Elections are over on the campus, but the duty in of-
fice never ceases. Too many time, in too many instances,
t ose who were just elected to office seek to rest on the
i hts of a victory well won. But will it be well kept?
Those who have won minor offices are naturally look-
: :forward to a higher step. But, in taking that step, the
ties that they are pledged to perform now shouldn't be
-gotten or neglected.
You who have won an office, you who now hold a posi-
I'on that is inferior to another, don't sacrifice the good.
name of your office with the far sighted ideals that you
may have for the future. You have a job to do now, not
next year. Do that job, do it now,and do it well.

Strangely enough, the modern
, history of Italy begins with a war
- against Russia. For in 1855, Sar-
dinia was a loose combination oi
Italian states, but it was to be-
come the kernel of Italian unity.
And when 18,000 Italians were
sent to the Crimea to aid Britain
and France"in sieging the Rus-
sian held city of Sevastopol, Count
g Cavour said, "You have the fu-
ture of the country in your haver-
It was a bloody and miserable
battle, alleviated only by the kind-
ness of Florence Nightingale and
the fables about her. But a re-
sponse came from a soldier in the
trenches. "Out of this mud Italy
will be made." And he was right,
for in February, 1861, the king-
dom of Italy was proclaimed.
S And this kingdom saw the rise
of the Black Shirts in 1919, and in
1922 Benito Mussolini assumed
control of the government at the
invitation of the king. Italy de-
Sclared war on Great Britain and
- France in 1940, but signed an ar-
mistice in 1943. Mussolini and his
mistress suffered an ignoble death
by a Partisan firing squad in 1945.
Italy became a republic in 1946,
for the Italian people voted out
the monarchy by a close margin
in June. And on April 18, next
Sunday, of this year, the Italian
people once more will march to
the polls. The world awaits the
For the Communist pressure-
to which Czechoslovakia yielded,
of which Sweden is afraid, with
which Turkey has flirted, and
against which Greece is openly
fighting-has not left Italy un-
scathed or unafraid.
Italy today has about fifty mil-
lion people. Two million of these
are registered as Communists.
Over 99 per cent are Roman Cath-
olics. In terms of land area, Italy
is the most densely populated area
in Europe. The battle line can be
drawn from these figures. On the
one hand are the two million fan-
atical Communists working within
a confused and misled people, who
cannot help but be bitter over the
age-old problem in Europe, distri-
bution of land, in their crowded
And on thb other hand are the
almost fifty million Catholics-
poor but devout-who are proud
of the Vatican City in their midst.
For regardless of the real issues
involved, the battle forathe vote
has been made into a choice of
Christianity or Communism. And
it is -to the Catholics that the
world appeals.
While the parish priests quietly
did their bit, this decree came
from the inner workings of the
Pope's hierarchy in March: "Cath-
olics may give their votes only to
those candidates or lists of can-
didates from which there is cer-
tainty they will respect and de-
fend observance of the divine law

and rights of religion and the
church in private and public life."
And when the Communists cried
,ut and suggested they would cir-
cumnavigate the secret ballot of
April 18, the Christian Democrats
countered with propaganda say-
ing, "In the voting booth God sees
you, Stalin does not."
There is in the offering for Italy
the .European Recovery Program.
But the thought of aid in the fu-
ture is not as effective as the let-
ter received today. Because of the
urgings of interested American
citizens and organizations, mil-
lions of anti-Communist letters
have poured into Italy. The New
York postmaster estimated that
mail to Italy has increased by
100,000 letters a day. One organi-
zation has sent two million letters
Seeing- that her interests are
failing constitutionally, Russia can
protect them with only one alter-
native-force. And this is in line
with the reports of massing of
Russian troops on the Yugoslavia
border. General Marshall has him-
self expressed fear that uncon-
trollable Yugoslavs might boil
over their borders into Italy. And
this tendency is aggravated by the
recent Allied decision to give the
international zone of Trieste to
Italy. Many Yugoslavs live in
In Italy, two alternatives pre-
sent themselves. The people shall
vote and preserve their republic-
or they can, by merely abstain-
ing from the polls because of coer-
cion, not vote and give the Com-
munists the 35 or 40 per cent
needed to dominate the govern-
ment by alow process.
If they vote and preserve the
republic, the Russian alternative
is force. Russia's next move hinges
upon April 18.

er by force or slow contamination,

Political Columnist H en n in g
Heldt's story on the state politi-
cal situation with regard to the
campus-Heldt, who has done ev-
erything short of publicly an-
nouncing his support for Dan Mc-
Carty, said that McCarty was
ahead with students here accord-
ing to polls taken in four classes
(so far we've been unable to track
down any such polls). Acutally,
McCarty and Warren are running
neck and neck in campus support,
with Warren supporters, following
the trend of state-wide sentiment
as indicated by Heldt himself, in
the majority if anything-another
bone of contention is the fact that
a McCarty supporter is the one
who is said to have given Heldt
his "low-down" on the campus sit-
uation. Reason for the closeness
of support for the two men here
is obvious-both are University of
Florida men, both are members of
Florida Blue Key, both are young
veterans, both oppose the sales
tax and both are for a "no-fence"
law. Colin English is not without
local support either, and is strong

Have you ever walked by the
Florida Union around five in the
afternoon and heard a serenade of
beautiful voices rising o'er the
gentle spring thermals and softly
caressing the vine clad halls, punc-
uated aS times with a resounding
belch that serves as a basso pro-
Those are the voices of Florida's
"Ambassadors of Good Will,"
known in Pahokee ana Micanopy
as Florida's "Instigators of
Blood Chills." Yep, its our world-
renowned Glee Club. And don't
let anyone tool you, either. We
got a good one. Ours is Lhe oniy
Glee Cluo in the country where
the director doesn't use a pitch
pipe. He just passes the peace
pipe and bieats the pluch with a
everyonee knows "Prof" De-
Bruyn. He's the only faculty
member on the campus who re-
fuses to use a pogo stick. He
has a pass to go thnrougn canyon
-No. 6 between language Hall and
the Florida Union.
I used to be min the Glee Club.
I had a voice just like Bing Cros-
by's, the "Prof" told me, till he
graph record under my shirt. So,
discovered I was using a phono-
tney kicKed me out. rney kept
the record. I want my record
The Glee Club is composed of
80-oud voices. And 1 do mean odd.
Before "Prof" DeBruyn got hold
ol these guys, they couldn't sing
a note. 11ow they can sing two.
Ana tney way tney sbund at times
one would tnink the were sing-
ing them boLn at the same time.
The Phi Delts, A'ro'S, Sigma
Nu ', KlA's, and the AHE's once
had some terrific quartets. So,
they sent them to ine Glee Ciub.
The boys didn't last, though. All
they knew how to sing was "Tne
Beer Barrel Polka," and "I Want
a Bowlegged Woman." The polka
was OK, but the "Prof" doesn't
care for bowlegged women.
Every so often, the Glee Club
leaves on a concert tour. Concert
tour that's a practice session on
wheels. The boys try to stay in
the best hotels while on tour, but
because of crowded conditions
they have to take what they can
get. And they get took.
They gave a command perform-
ance last week in Underslung
Hills, which is a suburb of George
Hills. The municipal auditorium
was packed with 20 people, six
horses, three cows, two pigs, and
several PKT's. When those 80-
odd men lifted their voices in
unison, which was seldom, the
20 people left, the six horses had
six colts, which was the automat-
ic thing to do, the cows gave 60
quarts of milk, the pigs charged
the rostrum, and the PKT's didn't
do anything. They didn't know
anything to do.
The boys came out on top
though. Or should I say through
the top? However, they took
those pigs that charged the ros-
trum back to Gainesville with
them. A case of ham taking
ham, you know.
Everyone should be justly proud
of our Glee Club. We have the
only decent Glee Club this side
of Ninth Street. "Prof" DeBruyn
is always looking for new materi-
al. After lisetning to what he's
got, who can blame him? How-
ever, give the boys time. And if
-they keep making those trips to
Raiford that they have been mak-
ing the past few years, that's just
what they'll get.

Sue like we know Sue-her old
man would be after you with a
shotgun too.
Two old ladies were enjoying
the music in the park.
"I think this is a Minuet from
Mignon," said one.
"I thought it was a waltz. from
Faust," said the other.
The first went over to what she
thought was the board announcing
the program.
"We're both wrong" she said
when she got back. "It's a Re-
frain from Spitting."

One of the basic tenets of the
political philosophy on which the
United States is founded is that
you, or I or anyone else who can
meet the statutory or constitu-
tional requirements can run for
governor or any other office.
In the beginning it was often
proven that this was a coun-
try in which any mother's son
might win the highest elector-
al office However, with tne
passage of time and the increas-
in complexity of of our society
this concept of government has
been pushed into the back-
Gradually our governments,
both state and national have de-
velved i*o a condition in which
our electirV offices have been sur-
rendered into the practice hands

ready promise into a public of-
Now and then, there arises a
citizen who is willing to chal-
lenge the right of professional
politicians to every high ad-
ministrative office. We have a
man of that amount of courage
in the gubernatorial race, but
his success depends on whether
the voters choose to remember
that the average citizen has a
right to run for office or choose
to vote from those who live
by votes alone.
That man is Richard H. (Dick)
Cooper, family man, veteran, edi-
tor and law student, of DeLand
who at 27 is seeking the office
of chief executive of the state of
Cooper grew up at Fort Pierce
on a farm and was graduated
from St. Lucie County High
School. He then worked his way
through Florida Southern College
as a night watchman and grad-
uated at 19 with an A. B. in
While City Editor of the Sara-
sota Herald-Tribune in 1942 he
entered the Army as a private
in the corps of engineers. He
served there and one-half years,
including two years overseas
with Patton's Third Army in Eu-
rope and the Eighth U. S. Army
in the Phillipines and Japan. Dur-
ing service he rose from private
to major.
Upon his return to civilian life
life, Cooper re-entered newspa-
per work and is now editor of
the Volusia Mirror in DeLand
where he is a senior in Law
at Stetson University. He is
married, and is the father of a
15-months-old daughter.

form is water controls ;action on

Cooper's strength, however
lies neither in his personal his!
tory which is that of a preco.
cious young man, nor his plat
form which is merely an accur.
ate listing of some of the
state's greatest needs. It lies
in the fact that he has not
promised the Florida taxpayers
hat and shirt to anyone; that he
owns himself; and that he has
the courage and integrity sufli,
client to put his platform to
work, if elected. This is denm.
onstrated by the fact that he
is running on his own money
and without the backing of aln
pressure group whose interests
are contra to those of the state
of Florida.

notably love to back a winning
