out of the state, some never to
return again.

to the new initiates in which he

News Coverage

More Difficult

Each Week
ALLIGATOR officials stated to-
day that news coverage on the
campus is becoming more and
more difficult since there are few,
er and fewer reporters coming in
to staff meetings Monday and
Thursday evenings.
The ALLIGATOR has a great
many news and feature stories to
get out in each edition, and when
all the work falls on the shoulders
of a few, it is exceedingly difficult
to meet deadlines, it is felt by the
editorial board.
There are always openings for
good writers, and all students who
are interested in working on the
paper are invited to attend these
staff meetings.
Editor Pen Gaines stated that
all those students whose names
appear on the masthead of the
ALLIGATOR will have to put in
the work worthy of their names
appearing there, or they will be
taken off and not receive credit
for this semester's work.

Car Servicing New Cooperative Venture


Auto Servicing


Now Available


For Members

By Peggy Clayton
The Student Cooperative Ex-
change, Inc. is offering a new
service available to all regularly
enrolled students at the Univer-
sity-a cooperative venture in
gas, oil, greasing, washing, au-
tomobile accessories and mechani-
cal work.
Students who wish to join the
new cooperative or inquire about
it may do so at the co-op grocery
store located in Flavet I. A fee
of $2.50 is paid by each member,
$2 of which will be returned when
the membership is withdrawn.
Those who are already a mem-
ber of the Student Co-op Grocery
will have this service included in
the regular membership deposit of
$15.50. And if a student wishes to
join the grocery coop now, he may
still have both services for $15.50.
C. B. Donaldson at the Cities
Service Station, 1006 West Univer-
sity Avenue is the agency for the
auto cooperative. Those who take
advantage of the organization are
expected to be able to make a
saving on gas and oil and a large
saving on such accessories as tires
and batteries.
Membership in the new organi-
Zation does not give voting power
in the regular student coopera-
tive, but does give an associate
membership. The officials of the
Student Cooperative Exchange
state that price lists of articles
and services offered may be ob-
tained at the Cities Service Sta-
tion.

1000 Coeds Expected
Next September our University will welcome approxi-
mately 1,000 women students when it starts off into its
second year of being a co-educational institution.
Our's is the last of all the other State Universities to
open its doors to men and women students alike. Many
colleges changed their regulations during the war years,
and others, like the University of Florida, during the im-
mediate years following the war.
When a school starts admitting women after having been a male
college for many years, It invariably means the changing of many
factors in the environment of the students on its campus.
Here at Florida, the University officials eagerly await to make
these changes in order to insure the success of co-education. As can
be seen from recent improvements on the campus, much is being done
to make modern accommodations for the present and the future coeds.
These accommodations include housing, feeding, recreation, scholastic
and social facilities.
The erection of women's dormitories, the new cafeteria
addition, the construction of the Student Exchange Build-
ing, the ordaining of an athletic program and the installa-
tion of Sororities will aid immensely in answering the
wants of next year's women students.
Our University is striving for greater development and
will continue to strive for it, thereby making it a positive
fact that co-education will be a success on the campus.

John Crews-A Driving Leader
The appreciation of the majority of the student body
goes out to retiring President John J. Crews for his valu-
able service to the University in the past year.
Going into office with an Executive Council made up
strongly of opposition party members, Crews soon was
working harmoniously with the Council, a happy factor
which brought much favorable legislation to the campus.
His job, however, really began before he officially went
into office. Along with Harry Parham, then student body
president, and other leaders, he made frequent visits to
Tallahassee outlining to legislature the needs of the Uni-
versity of Florida. A 20-minute talk before the House Com-
mittee on Education and Appropriations was of great im-
portaine in obtaining $970,000 for the library addition,
ground for which has just been broken. In all, Crews was
a driving force in the resultant over-all grant of nearly
four million dollars.
The 26-year-old veteran bounced back from much op-
position and never allowed party politics to enter into his
work as head of the student body. Under his cool leader-
ship Student Government not only survived, where it fail-
ed in many other schools, but Student Government ad-
vanced.
Crews will be graduated from Florida in January. He
is now campaigning weekends for a seat in the state House
of Representatives. John Crews is the type of political
leader the University is proud to send out for service to the
state because he has proven his capability, fairness, and
honesty.

Reviews

And Stuff

By Gerald Clarke
Robert P. Tristram Coffin, a
man whose name, once heard, can
never be forgotten, was on cam-
pus recently as a speaker on the
lecture series. Concurrently, his
new book arrived from Macmillan, '
"Collected Poems of Robert P.
Tristram Coffin." it is a good
thing for it casts some light on
the author-poet, who, unfortunate-
ly, is a much misunderstood man.
One's first impression of Mr.
Coffin is similar to that given by
his writings. One simply cannot
believe his extraordinary mus-
tache. It is too much to be true
-here in 1948, a large, flowing,
handlebar mustache. Well his
writing has a mustache, too as
obvious to the reader as the hir-
sute growth below the poet's nose
is to people who meet him at first
hand.
At first impression one is in-
clined to be suspicious of men with
unusual mustaches, and likewise
of poets characterized by the un-
usual. However, anyone who has
occasion to deal more than briefly
with Mr. Coffin, overcomes ad-
verse reaction to the mustache
and soon sees it as a kind of
crowning glory, even if crowns are
usually better placed on the tops
of heads. Anyone who has the oc-
casfin to read more than just a
little of Mr. Coffin's poetry, soon
sees its unusual qualities as its
supreme achievement.
There is something extremely
unusual about the verse and the
entire writings of R. P. T. C.
There is an unparalleled simplicity
in it all. It deals with particular
things, things close at hand. Out
of the experiences of everyday
life, Coffin lifts the beautiful, sets
it in clear, homey, yet precise lan-
guage and offers it for our con-
templation.
He feels well about life and yet
is not blind to hate and cruelty.
These forces, he sees as but part
of the fabric of life. However, it
is the beautiful which he chooses
to emphasize. As he says himself,
though, he does not wish to make
the flowers more important than
the fruit. He wishes merely to
"convince man of the dignity and
beauty and preciousness of our
day." In doing this he takes the
common experiences of beauty,
the ones most of us pass with only
a flicker of response, describes, de-
fines, and intensifies these experi-
ences in unambiguous, almost
commonplace language langu-
age so unaffected as to appear
naive and makes them immedi-
ate to the reader in all their force.
Mr. Coffin is not naive far from
it; he simply knows how to make
the most of the small beauties of
experience.
While reading through the col-
lected poems, one is struck by the
immense number of joyful experi-
ences the man has had. Although
his life has had its great sorrows
and intense griefs, it has held,
also, perceptions of beauty in-
tense and plentiful not experi-
enced by ordinary folk to any de-
gree at all. In short-he is sensi-
tive, as a poet should be, to aes-
thetic experience. To him the
beautiful, the moral, are life's
truest and greatest gratifications
-perhaps they are the only real
and important ones. At any rate,
Mr. Coffin's life is full.
So-even if you don't like Rob-
ert Tristram Coffin's words (and
you probably will if you can ad-
just yourself to simple, pure lan-
guage), you are offered a power-
ful example of what life can
mean if experienced deeply. In a
world preoccupied with atomic an-
nihilation and pervaded more than
ever by cynicism, Coffin's is a re-
assuring poetic voice.

Support Of Carnival Urged
I would like to take this opportunity to make a personal appeal to
the independent students concerning the coming Spring Carnival spon-
sored by the student government for the student body. The Carnival
is not limited to any particular group, it is for ALL students, but the
essence of week-end lies elsewhere.
It is realized that the time is not appropriate and that the publici-
ty has not been what it could have been, Yet the total effort of the
student body has been exerted, mainly in the interest of the independ-
ents. Though the FIC will attempt to carry out their proposals of so-
cial activities in the coming year, the independents will lose the good
will and cooperation of many persons by ignoring the Spring Carnival.
With Frolics only two weeks after the Carnival, the fraternity
man will find his financial resources limit him to but one of these
week-ends. He is now obligated to buy tickets for the frolics. This is
fortunate ONLY if the independent students take advantage of the
situation and buy the tickets. If they do not it will be unfortunate. The
Carnival will not support Itself-Carnival days will die on the cam-
pus more suddenly than they began.
The Florida Independent Council, in addition to sponsoring the
parade, is canvassing the campus by means of its representatives in
an effort to sell the tickets. Tickets are also on sale in Union from
1 to 5 p. m. by the Pan Hellenic, and will be sold at the door.
I urge the independents who have spoken for social functions to
take action to support the Carnival. I sincerely urge all independents,
in addition to the fraternity men, to purchase a ticket to boost Spring
Carnival.

Students Oppose Gambling
Dear Pen,
We don't want to throw any onions at the American Legion, or
the Lions Club, etc., but we do want to raise our voice in protest against
these organizations sponsoring illegal and crooked gambling games at
so called "carnivals."
On visiting several county officials in an attempt to halt the
operation of these crooked gambling games, the only advice they had
to give was not to write the newspapers of this condition because it
would hurt the reputation of respectable citizens and officials (which
are coming up for reelection this year), and slander the good name
of Gainesville.

Gator Rifle Team

Completes Slate
The R. 0. T. C. Rifle Team end-
ed the current season of Inter-
collegiate Postal matches on
March 20. Although the Gator
Marksmen did not come out on top,
they have shown marked improve-
ment since the beginning of the
season.
According to Major R. H. Hugh-
ett, director of the team, the
matches were fairly successful
considering the bad weather that
held up practice on the outdoor
range. All matches in the finals
were scored on the five highest
scores out of ten men competing
in the standing, kneeling, sitting,
and prone positions.
During the last week of the con-
test, the Gator sharpshooters de-
feated the Eastern Kentucky
Teachers' College 1822-1705, Uni-
versity of Alaska 1822-1501, and
the University of Wyoming by a
technical win. High man in the
final match was Edward J. Min-
ton with 373 x 400. The four run-
ners-up were.. Caldwell N. Dugan
367 x 400, James W. Rouzie 366 x
400, Darrell O. Roden 359 x 400,
and Ray H. Baden 357 x 400.

MUSINGS


'By Julian Clarkson


{


THE CHI PHI softball nine, one of the two finalists in
the Blue League diamond tourney which ends this after-
noon with the XP-LXA title clash, has a moundsman
whose performance on the diamond bears striking resem-
blance to the exploits of the much-heralded pitcher who
toiled for the Gainesville G-Men last summer-one Mason
Leeper. The tale of how Leeper twirled a one-hitter and
struck out 17 men in a Florida State League contest, and
yet lost the game, 8-1-he walked 18- is an old story
now, but Chi Phi Pitcher Vaughn turned in his hot-and-
cold stint only day before yesterday.
In the XP-PKP. tussle .Monday ..afternoon, .Vaughn
walked 13 men in the five-inning contest, but still (and
nobody knows how) managed to win the ball game, 3-1.
He gave up only one safety, but his inability to find the
plate added to a couple of errors by his mates saw to it
that the bases were loaded every inning. In that respect he
batted almost 1.000, since the Pi Kaps left 14 men strand-
ed, one under the maximum possible figure.
Vaughn didn't rely entirely on his mates' fielding to
get him out of trouble. He sent nine hitters back to the
bench on strikeouts.
** 5
IT IS THE OPINION of this column that Monday's
softball clash between the Pikes and Phi Delta for the
championship of the lower bracket in the Orange League
tourney matched two of the most well-rounded teams ever
assembled on this campus for intramural softball play.
Both nines stand out most for the power that they pack
at the plate. The total of 17 hits amassed by the two teams
in their fracas is slightly phenomenal when it is consider-
ed that the game went only 4 1/2 innings and that. each
team was taking its cuts against a better than average
pitcher-Bill Boyd of the Pikes and Al Lindgren of the
Phi Delts. Two homers were uncorked during the fray, one
by "Scooter" Scott of PDT, the other by heavy-hitting
1Norman Wilcox, Boyd's baterymate. Both came with two
on.
The Phi Delts, whom we expected to win their game
with SAE yesterday, don't have a weak spot in their bat-
ting order with First-Baseman Tommy Bishbp, Shortstop
Amos Kelly, Lindgren, and Third Baseman Bill Owens
standing out as the top run manufacturers. The Pikes have
hit even better than their conquerors throughout the tour-
ney, paced by Manager Tommy Hill, Wilcox, Boyd, and
Outfielder Doug Treadwell.
Maybe all these frat powerhouses wouldn't look so
good if they had to face Fireball Tommy Taylor again this
year though.
At any rate, we'd like to see a playoff between the top
fraternity team and the All Stars, power-laden winners of
the Independent crown.

ONLY RECORD THAT FELL during the opening day
of the four-day intramural swimming meet went to Johnny
Pandak of the Hell Cats, a freshman from Trenton, N. J.,
.who was an All-American tankman during his high school
'ays. Pandak was clocked in 31.8 seconds in the 50 yard
;-~reaststroke, almost three seconds better than the old
oark of 34.6.
More records, however, were expected to fall yester-
vy and today, as well as in the finals tomorrow, when
fraternity teams take over.

The softbaTl nines of Phi Delta
Theta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon
were slated to square off in the
finals of the Orange League Intra-
mural softball tournament yester-
day afternoon after each team
pounded out a bracket playoff
victory Monday to reach a berth
in the payoff round.
This afternoon at 4:30 the un-
defeated Lambda Chi Alphas will
be favored to cop their first intra-
mural title of the year over in the
Chi Phi, 3-1 winner over Pi Kappa
Blue League when they go against
Phi Monday in a playoff for the
right to enter the Blue finals.
The Phi Delta had to reach the
Orange League title clash the hard
way by winning two playoff
games with the ATOs and Pikes,
respectively, after the bottom
bracket of the Orange tourney
ended in a three-way tie. ATO
fell before a vicious PDT attack
Thursday, 10-3, hnd the Pikes
dropped a 7-5 decision to PDT
Monday.
Scott Homers
Jim "Scooter" Scott's power
poke in deep left center for four
bases with Owens and Westscott
on-the sacks in the fourth inning
enabled the Phi Delts to take a
5-4 lead against the Pikes:, and
before Pike Pitcher Bill Boyd
could get the side out, the PDT
nine had run the count to 7-4 on
the strength of singles by Kelly
and Williams and Bishop's second
double.
The Pikes had taken a 4-2 lead
in the third stanza when Catcher
Norman Wilcox hit for the ciX-
cuit behind Hill's single and a
walk to Odom. Al Lindgren yield-
ed seven safeties to the losers,
three by Wilcox, while his mates
collected ten off Boyd.
Sigma Nu dropped a heart-
breaker to the SAEs in bowing
out of the tourney Monday, blow-
ing an early two-run lead and then
watching an extra-inning rally fall
one short of a tie after their op-
ponents had pushed across three
runs in the first overtime frame.
After the regulation five innings
had ended with the score tied at
2-2 in a pitching duel pitting the
slants of SN's Sutton against Ni-
gels of SAE the SAEs rallied for
three runs in the top half of the
sixth on hits by Wilkinson and
Flammer and a pair of SN errors.
The Snakemen pulled the count
to 5-4 as Long cracked a two-run
homer in the bottom half of the
extra inning, but Nigels retired
the side without further scoring.
Chi Phi was another team that
had to win two playoff games to
gain thelfinals over in the Blue
League. After coming from behind
to edge AGR, 2-1, Thursday, XP
eliminated Pi Kappa Phi Monday,
3-2, behind the one-hit pitching
of Pitcher Vaughn.
