past three or four weeks, and who kept throwing cold
water on the whole affair, are not able to say this week,"I
told you so."
The Alligator, which has definitely been behind there
growth of independent action on the campus, realizes that
the independents are not fully organized enough to have
full participation on the first of such week-ends.
It was heartening to see a trend for closer relationship
between fraternity and independent men and women on
the campus. It was good to see the first sorority participa-
But it was disheartening to see so many attempting to
make a failure out of a good idea and for many of the
fraternities to be so passive as not even support the week-
end by entering a float into a parade,, which might some
day rival the biggest in the state.
We sincerely believe that the outcome, although not
as bright as it should have been, is to be praised, and that
all who did the work, including Al Crabtree, Eugene Doss,
Charlie Wainwright, should receive the credit for over-
coming obstacles in putting on a "neat college affair."

den, 79, married the former Jen-
nie Lee, a teasing 42, in a cere-
mony held at Miami 'Beach. Is this
a promotion deal for his governor
candidacy or his physical culture
program? Two University
students, Hoyt Charles, Tampa
and Arthur S. Anderson, Concord,
Mass., shared honors this year for
the Burpee Award, given an-
nually for outstanding student
work in the field of flower and
vegetable culture. Hoyt and Ar-
thur will divide the award which

prominent seed company." Can
you guess the company?
Saturday, April 24-Quite an
elegant parade glided down Uni-

ternoon sun. Coeducation was dis-
played very well on many of the
floats, Probably one of the most
eager little groups, was Lou
Field's crew of red-nosed Russians
advertising REVIZOR (THE IN-
SPECTOR GENERAL to you).
Lou also did the publicity for
JOAN OF LORRAINE and has
proved himself the possessor of
bournless originality and energy.
Downtown Gainesville was not as
impressed by the parade. "What
are them fool youngin's up to
now?" asked a bewhiskered man
to his wife and five little girls.
"Don't they realize there's work
to be done?"

Early To Bed
(Special to Early to Bed)
Senator Cadwallader T. Sludge
(Dem., Ga.) today announced the
formation of a new bill that he
claims will eliminate all domestic
and international difficulties. In
the form of a national holiday,
Sludge's program has the backing
of many powerful lobbies in the
The new bill provides for a
weekly world-wide day of rest
known as "National Snoozer's
Day." According to Sen. Sludge,
one day of sleep per week will
give the great minds a chance to
recuperate from the strain of their
work. "All difficulties will then
be settled," he said.
Officials in the White House re-
fused to comment but stated that
any proposition advanced by Sen.
Sludge would be "just ducky" with
the President. Sludge, it is known,
is the President's cousin.
In a press notice released by
the Sludge office, it is indicated
that in order for the new measure
to be effective, all hours will be
cut to 40 minutes. As soon as
there is enough time to complete
24 hours, there would be a "Na-
tional S'noozer's Day."
Known to be rather close-
mouthed, for a, senator,. Sludge
was pumped by reporters as to the
effect of his defense program.
Said Sludge, "if everyone had a
chance ta sleep for a whole day
without bein' distoibed, there
would be 'no trouble anywhere.
Now dese sellers are sleeping all
the time, especially when they're
The bill provides for the ceas-
ing of all business, industry and
work on "Snoozer's Day." Schools,
factories, and even Congress would

Backed by the Simmons and
other mattress companies, Sludge
has announced that he will fight
for his bill to the last yawn- Com-
ments from presidential candi-
dates are varied on the question.
Said Taft last night, "Cad's got
the right idea. I was it was me
who thought of it."
In Tokyo, Gen. MacArthur com-
mented, "'Oh, sooo. It is a very
good idea. How can I come back!"
On his way to Omaha, Neb., aft-
er a speech in Nome, Alaska,
Harold Stassen said, "Ahhhh. It's
just a lot of Sludge."
Meanwhile, Thomas .Dewey, in-
terrupted in an animal-breeding
experiment on his Duchess County
farm, said, "If this bill goes
through, I shall retire."

At the beginning of last week
our Glee Club sang in P. K. Yonge
Auditorium and Friday sponsored
an appearance by the Florida
A & M Choir in the University
Auditorium. These performances,
coming so closely together as they
did, provoked a lot of compari-
Friday night saw a mixed choir
-often supported by piano and
.organ. The group produced thrill-
ing music. The Monday before,
our group sang a capella, and in
two sections-male and female.
Good music was produced then,
too. Completely different ap-
proaches were taken and both
groups produced satisfying re-
sults, but not to the same degree.
Florida A & M's Choir often re-
lied on sheer volume to produce
effect. At times the mixed voices
took on a very definite harshness.
Nevertheless, the' total effect was
impressive. Our aggregation, the
men, especially, relied on tonal
purity to make an impact on au-
diences. It seems that this pure
tone lost' out as far as the ma-
jority1 of listeners were concerned.
As always, a majority can be
wrong. Musical excellence is not
to be determined by an undiscrim-
inating majority but underlying
last week's popular opinion, I
think, were considerations which
even discriminating listeners might
In my opinion, both vocal or-
ganizations offended. Ours on the
side of restraint and theirs on the
side of bombast. In Monday's con-
certs the Ambassadors of Good-
will were about as restrained as
one glee club can be. And what
was their total effect? They were
satisfying, but less, I fear, than
might be desired.
in the range of dynamics which
they chose-extremely soft to
medium loud-they hit fairly close
to perfection and the drop in
pitch reported by some, I think,
was forgivable. Such purity of
tone as they achieved satisfies the
intellect but does not stir the
emotions much and, perhaps, that
is all right. In the,'religious songs
it was very effective. Otherwise,
I don't feel so.
However, the emotions are a
primary factor in the enjoyment
of music and the cofitrast between
loud and soft is an important fac-
tor in producing emotional effect.
There was no loud in Monday's
concert, and with all its pure tone,
our glee club failed to arouse au-
diences like the A & M crowd did
On the other hand, those sensi-
tive to such things were often of-
fended by the harsh loudness pro-
duced by the A & M group. They
seemed to show themselves in-
capable of singing with quiet pur-
ity comparable to that of our
group. They did vary their inten-
sity over a wider range, though,
and to my mind were more satis-

THE LONE HANGOVER from an otherwise smoothly-
conducted swimming meet last week was the trouble
which arose in determining the winner of the Orange
League fancy diving competition. Spectators who took in
the finals Thursday afternoon will remember that Jack
Griffin of Kappa Alpha was at first announced to be the
winner, only to have the public address system blare out
ten minutes later that Billy McGrath of Sigma Nu was
diving champ. And now word comes from the intramural
department that the original decision sticks, with Griffin
the winner and McGrath second.
The point of controversy went something like this: Mc-,
Grath, who set a new springboard record in the prelims,
went completely haywire on two dives, the front and back
jack, to hold his scoring relatively low in the finals. In at-
tempting to execute the front jack, he felt himself going
too far over at the peak of his leap and managed to roll on
: over into a front somersault, entering the water clean. The
judges awarded him no points.
On his next effort, supposedly a back dive, the Sigma
Nu star again missed out on his timing and spun too far;
.hitting on his back. One judge flashed a "2" while the oth-
er two failed to hold up a card.
After the results were computed, the tally sheet indi-
cated 37.9 points for Griffin as compared. with 37.6 points
for McGrath, who had made up for his two flops with a
beautiful full twist, 11/2 somersault that .drew 27 points
from the judges. Griffin was announced the winner some
ten minutes before one judge informed the scorers that he
should have given McGrath a "2" for effort.. on his. at,
tempted back jack. The judge asked that his vote on' that
dive be changed and McGrath was then proclaimed
champ. Whereupon the KAs protested the blasted change
in the scores.
The intramural board, in upholding the protest, did
:iot consider whether or not McGrath should have received
points--which is still in doubt-but rather decided that
:the judge should not have been allowed to award points
after the final results had been announced.
WE PERSONALLY DON'T think that McGrath would
have wanted to win that way. That the Sigma Nu star was
easily the outstanding participant in the meet, there is no
doubt. He shattered Billy Bracken's record by better than
four points in the prelims with an exhibition that kept the
capacity crowd in continual uproar. Incidentally McGrath,
,who is rated pretty close to Bracken, Florida's SEC diving
titleholder, in springboard ability, will be a welcome ad-
dition to the Gator tank team next year.
But he happened to have a bad day in the finals. His
teammates told us that his timing had been poor when he
worked out before the meet, and he felt pretty low when
his turn to perform came up.
And if anyone deserved a break, it was Griffin. The
spunky KA athlete knew he was outclassed by McGrath,
;but after missing his back dive badly to score only 11
'points, he came back to chalk up 23, 24, and 23 on his.last
