Solves Problem Of Crane
By Hugh Stump
The nature of the Florida stu-
dent is essentially a curious one.
This is evidenced by a letter re-
ceived recently by the ALLIGA-
TOR from three inmates of the
infirmary. They wondered, as
have many others who have seen
the phenomenon, just hdw in the
world the Aucher Construction
Company, which is building the
new gym, is "going to get the big
combination crane, derrick and
steam shovel out of the new gym
now that they have it in, and 'how
did they get it in there in the
The ALLIGATOR, being cu-
rious itself, sent me down to
investigate the matter. I thought
that I might well have a diffi-
cult time at this task, so I
thoughtfully provided my self
with, a string to use as guide
line to get myself out, assum-
ing that I'd get in.
I went down to the erivationa
LAti 4Lter mypeir- ue ge
effort of trying to find the right
passage to reach the center of the
building, where the crane seemed
to be. I entered the first "hole"
I came toand instead of ascend-
ing, or walking on a level, Iwas
on a downward plane. I looked
ahead down the passageway' and
the passage seemed to go down
into the depths of the earth,, but
about that time I heard water
splashing. I was in up to my an-
kles. It was only the reflection
of the same passage I'saw going
'Aunt Lil' Resigns
As Florida Alumni
Mrs. Lillian Helihan, chief clerk
of the University of Florida Alum-
ni Association for the past five
years, has submitted her resigna-
tion to President J. Hillis Miller.
Mrs. Helihan's resignation be-
comes effective tomorrow.
Better known to her friends in
the University and among the
alumni as "Aunt Lil," Mrs. Relihan
assumed the duties of Chief Clerk
in 1943. Since that time she has
been active in handling Alumni
Affairs and, until the recent ap-
pointment of, D. R. "Billy" Mat-
thews as Director of Alumni Af-
fairs, was in charge of the office.
The position vacated by Mrs.
Relihan will be filled by Mrs. Janet
Gay, recently appointed by Presi-

May Dance Tonight
Want dance? Then sashay
this night to the Bee Hall where
some local Spring-enthusiasts
are going to glory in the revela-
tions of nature with a May Day
Dance. That's right, a May
Dance. And the hours are to be
from 8:30 In the evening to 11:30
in the night. In case you don't
like to dance, or your companion
for the eve has wandered off
with some other pogue, there!s
to be a floor show too. The jump
stimulus will be recorded and
entrance to the affair is gratiS-
Dutifully, I returned by means
of my guide-string, and began
hunting another passage. Soon I
began to see the light of day, a
welcome sight after the black-
ness of the Styglan depths
through which I was traveling.
Happy to discover that I had
chosen the' right passage, I
emerged into the great open
space of the auditorium-to-be.
Suddenly I heard a bull-like
roar, "Get the h- out of here!
Want to get your neck broken?"
I don't know whether the big fella
meant that he would do it, or
that somebody would drop some-
thing on me, but anyway, I got.
I hustled to the protecting over-
hang nearby and looked around
for some one not quite so big that
I could talk to for some informa-
tion. I picked on a gent who look-
ed as though he might have been
around when the University was
being built. I eased over to him
~.rd askejid "Sy- mister, can you.
tell me how'ttat big t'rane-is go--
ing to get out o here?"
He looked at me as if I were
dumb as hell, and said, "Haven't
you got any eyes, sonny?" Now
I don't resent implications that
I am dumb, but I hate some-
body to call me "sonny." How-
ever, I swallowed my wrath,
since the big guy was still in
view. I said, "Sure, Pop, I've
got eyes, but I want some info
that's official." (Flattering the
old bird, you see.) He then took
me over to the east side of the
new gym and showed me a gap
in the wall' with a lot of dirt
piled around it. "Here's where
they brought it in, and this is
where they'll take it out. They
will lower the crane down to
the ground, and just drive it
out," he said.
Now the boys over in the infir-
mary can go back to being sick
and I can sleep at nights, for all
of us are cured of our curiosity.
"Florida Follies," a charity
show which is a combined Sigma
Delta Chi-Gainesville Jaycee pro-
duction, will feature first-class en-
tertainment, Director Raul Reyes

which is composed of local talent,

entation at the Florida, Theatre

lize part of the profits in con-
structing a playground near the
University and Sigma Delta Chi,

thering journalism in Gainesville

One of the highlights of the
show, Reyes said, will be the fea-
turing of a professional dance rou-
tine to be presented by Winkie
Saunders, Florida coed, Elmer Al-
len and Don Davidson. Other mem-
bers of the show include Harvey
Relman, Glee Club soloist, ATO
fraternity's version of Spike Jones'

Authorized For Vets
Under G.I. Bill
TION: PL 346 (GI Bill) students
have been authorized 15 days'
leave with subsistence for the
period June 8-22, 1948. No action
in this regard is necessary on
the part of (a) those who de-
sire to attend Summer School
and (b) those who will not be
in Summer School but do de-
sire leave. Those who do not de-
sire leave (ie, those who desire
to save that 15 day period for
actual schooling) must report
that fact to the VA immedi-
ately. A VA representative will
be in the West Lounge, Florida
Union Building, 9-12 A.M. and
1-4 P.M. today, to assist stu-
dents in reporting that they
do not desire leave.

balloting and he will administer
these and other duties in his
capacity as an officer. Lee, a
candidate endorsed by the Var-
sity party, comes from Fort
When asked about the outcome
of the spring elections, Lee
answered, "My belief is and al-
ways has been that only quali-
fied candidates should be placed
in office, and that they should be
judged by their previous demon-
strations of willingness to work,
rather than on their being, or not
being, members of a fraternal
organization. I hope that never
again will a line be drawn be-
tween independent and fraternity
members of the student body."
"The newly elected representa-
tives have promised," he added,
"the fullest cooperation in dis-
charging their individual and
collective duties to the students
for whom they were elected? We
are all intending to work with
the President of the Student
Body in every manner possible
to carry out our pre-election
Lee emphasized the fact that
"Student Government is still the
responsibility of each and every
student here at the University.
It's their job as well as ours to
see that this government ranks
in status with other schools and
Another important duty he will
fulfill is that of working in con-
junction with the Secretary of
Finance in keeping records of
student body organizational funds
and expenditures. This duty en-
tails the signing of all requisi-
tions on said funds only on order
of the Council. He shall perform
any other duties prescribed by
the Council and shall generally
assist the President in the con-
duct of the government.
Lee, present President of the
Junior Class, has been active on
the campus. He is a member of
Alpha Phi Omega, service fra-

Fraternity. Other activities that
he has been associated with are:

One of the nation's top rythm-
men, Drummer Jack Sperling will
be starred with Tex Beneke and
his orchestra next weekend when
Spring Frolics hits Gatorland, the
IFC learned this week. Final
plans for the affair have been
c- apleted, with the nationwide
Beneke air-show in the limelight.
One of the two ex-Navy men
in the all-veteran swing group
Sperling was teamed with Ben-
eke in a number of service bands
while on duty at the Norman,
Okla., Naval Air Station. Upon
discharge he filled in the drum-
ming slot for Beneke in the
Texan's new orchestra.
Formerly with Bunny Berigan in
pre-war days, Sperling later front-
ed 'his own combination for two
years and today is lauded by fellow
musicians as being one of the best
in the hot-note business.
Next week's social shindig

Besides jiving out at two forma;
dances, Beneke will play at an
hour concert Saturday afternoon
at 4:30 in University Auditorium.
Both dances are slated for the
"new" gym, beginning at 9 Friday
night and 8:30 Saturday night.
A highlight of the jamboree
will be the mutual network air-
ing of the Tex Beneke "On The
Beam" show Friday night at
9:30 during the first formal af-
fair. Four talented Gators will
get their big break on the show
during a local-talent session to
be featured as part of the pro-
Auditions for the "On The
Beam" show are now being run by
program director Johnny Sever
and Major Garland Powell of
WRUF. Applications will be ac-
cepted until Monday evening,
Sever has announced.
According to Sever all types of
talent are needed. Vocal groups,
soloists, instrumentalists, imper-
sonators and comedy teams will
be considered by Jack Roche, Mu-
tual producer of the program.

Liver Fluke Control
To BeStudied Here
1 Florida Agrictural Experiment
stationn is goinA to delve into the
family secrets the liver fluke in
an endeavor to find out how to
control this little parasite which
is causing mor(and more damage
' Director HaIldI' Mowry has an-
nounced receipt )f a check for
$20,000 from lWift and Company
to aid in a fihe-year study of the
fluke, to be conductedd under the
direction of tie station's parasi-
tologist, Dr. leorard E. Swanson.
Dr. Swanson 3 new looking around

which he hopes o get under way
not later that JUy 1.
Found I1 Alachua
The liver flu.e attacks cattle,
deer and rabbit in Florida, and
sheep in other ;reas. The parasi-
'tologist says it s found along the
St. Johns, Indian, Caloosahatchee
and Peace Riv'rs, around Lake
Okeechobee, ard in Polk, Hills-
borough, Pasco Lnd Alachua Coun-
Less than X0 years ago the
fluke was not considered a pest
of enough importance to justify
research on Its control. But now
many livestock producers and
packers are concerned over its
damages, and one big packer
has thought It justified the ex-
penditure of $20,000.
Damage consists in death of
some animals in heavily infested
areas and emaciation, stunting, in-
ferior quality and poor production
in animals that survive. Livers of
both sheep and cattle are con-
demned at time of slaughter to the
value of $100,000 annually in the
United States. Liver condemna-
tion in heavily infested Florida
areas runs as high as 90 to 100
per cent in some herds.
Few control measures are known
now for the fluke. One is to de-
stroy fresh water snails, which are
their immediate hosts, and prevent
the young flukes from having fresh
water snails in which to develop.

Alligator Sports Editor
FLORIDA'S BASEBALL TEAM HAS SHOWN distinct
improvement since their opening game. Now riding on a
four game winning streak the Gators have been hitting the
ball at a terrific clip. Jimmy Kynes, Bobby Forbes, and the
others have been punching out those hits when they count.
Their two straight wins over the University of Alabama
was just sort of colossal. Bob Adams has shown steady
improvement on the mound since the opening of the sea-
WITH THE FINAL DAYS OF SCHOOL NOW HERE
it is time that we turned our attention to the men who are
going to enroll here next fall. Florida gives a large num-
ber of football scholarships but very few in any other
sport. I understand there are one or two men on basketball
tickets, but that is all. This writer strictly believes in hav-
ing a strong all around sports program. In fact we think
that a certain number of scholarships should be allowed to
each sport. The slate of scholarships should line up as
such: 75 for football; 15 for basketball; 15 for baseball;
four for golf; four for tennis; 15 for track; and a few oth-
ers thrown in for other minor sports.
RECENTLY AN ARTICLE APPEARED in the state
papers and other papers in the South to the effect that
Florida would win only one Southeastern Conference foot-
ball game next Fall. Harry Mehre, former University of
Mississippi and Georgia coach, said that the Gator's might
down Mississippi if big Barney Poole joined the pro ranks
AS many people expect him to do. Mehre said that the
Mississippi game is the only one in which the Gators have
. ,~ny kind of chance to win.
We beg to differ with your line of thought Mr. Mehre.
SUnless unforseen complications set in the Gators will trip
Mississippi, Auburn and possibly Georgia or Kentucky.
Other Gator wins for the season should be Rollins, Miami,
Tulsa, and Furman.
The University of Miami will have a new coach, but
that doest't always make.a new ball club. We should have
beaten them three touchdowns last year. Tulsa is a very
erratic ball club and could give the Gators a severe beat-
ing. Furman and Rollins should be breathers for the

Supreme Honor System
A sincere tribute to and confidence in our Honor sys-
tem at the Unive'rsity has been given by Dave Mangham,
proprietor of Dave's Snack Shop. Just this past week, Dave.
put up a colorful board in his place, to which was attach-
ed several five and 10 dollar bills. The board-, is called
"Gator Skins," and its purpose is to help out those students
on campus who find themselves a bit short near the end,
of the month.
All a student has to do to borrow a "Gator Skin" is to
ask for it, sign the slip under the "skin," and from there
on out he is on'his honor to repay the Snack Shop when he
receives his check.
This method of help has not been limited to veteran
students only. Dave stated that all students on the campus
may borrow a "Gator Skin" at any time.
Students on campus should readily appreciate the gen-
uine effort that Dave Mangham is putting forth to help
them through difficult periods. Once again, belief in our
Honor system has been shown by others outside the cam-
Take Part In College Spirit
The campus is seethingwith activity during these clos-
ing weeks, and rightfully so. Many times, college life nar-
rows down to one or two weekends, or one or two big ac-
tivities during the year.
In this way, the college spirit is not always up to the
point it should be.
Today's front page indicates a lot of activity for any
college campus. Florida Players is closing another success-
ful play; Ak College is holding its annual Fair Day today;
the Engineers are expending their annual weekend activi-
ties so that it ranks up there in the big-time now; next
year's student officers will be installed next Tuesday;
Lyceum Council brings still more entertainment to the
campus; coeds begin election of officers for the women's
This is certainly an active campus. We like it that way,
but want to urge more students to take up this college
spirit. We realize the crowding in of term papers, book
reports, and last minute cramming. But-we feel that each
of you should get as much out of these days as possible.
Spend your time wisely.

V. INSIDE RUSSIA
"Let not our hatred of our foes
grow cold Let it continue to
rage with a ten-fold fury in our
hearts toward those for whom
there is no name in human lan-
guage, toward those who have not
yet satisfied their lust and profits
derived from the blood of millions;
and who, in their satanic and blind
folly, are preparing a new war for
These words, addressed to the
Russian people, are extracted from
a Soviet broadcast officially moni-
tored in Washington. This message
also appeared in Pravda, Russia's
official journal. And from this
diet fed to the Russian people, we
can surmise the content of their
Only last week, one of the seven
foreign correspondents in Moscow
was expelled from Russia because
of the accusation that he was spy-
ing for the U. S. Embassy. Time
Magazine aptly pointed out that
if the correspondent Magidoff was
expelled for the reason listed by
the Soviet government, then the
other six correspondents could ex-
pect immediate expulsion them-
selves. Magidoff's American born
secretary, now a Russian citizen,
had published a letter in the news-
paper Izvestia which said in part:
"I consider war to be a great
calamity for mankind. The capi-
talists are hatching a new war
and Magidoff's collection of intel-
ligence data about the U. S. S. R.
undoubtedly was part of the dirty
work which American capitalists
are doing for the preparation of
a new war."
These words, perhaps no more
anti-American than our editorials
are anti-Russian, are not signifi-
cant in themselves. But the expul-
son of Magidoff, for such nebulous
reasons, appears as an attempt to
close the final gaps in the iron
This attempt contrasts strange-
ly with resolutions adopted by the
United Nations Conference on
Freedom of Information and the
Press, in which Russia partici-
pated, that held its final meeting
last Thursday dn Geneva. The con-
ference condemned warmongering
and recommended the widest pos-
sible dissemination of free infor-
mation. It also scored peacetime
censorship' and encouraged gov-
ernments to give the freest pos-
sible movement to foreign corre-
Russia did not agree to all these
recommendations, which are to be
presented to the United Nations
Diplomacy works in strange
ways for last week at Lake Suc-
cess the Soviets proposed to add
this to a list of crimes being pre-
pared by the United Nations: "All
forms of public propaganda (the
press, .radio, cinema, etc.) aiming
at inciting racial, national or re-
ligious enmity or hatred, or aim-
ed at provoking commission of
the crime of genocide (mass de-
struction of human groups)."
The United States promptly re-
jected the proposal as an attempt
to muzzle the press. Said Dr. John
Maktos of the U. S., "The terms
would create the danger of being
construed to cover all statements
published against any group."
Inside Russia, 4,500 skilled prop-
agandists continue to bombard the
peoples with their one-sided solu-
tion for world problems. Their'
words are the "truth" others'
words are "lies and slander." Rus-
sia, "land of the freedom-loving
peoples," is a simon-pure "democ-
racy." The satellite countries ar,
"new democracies." The United
States stands for "imperialism."
And as for their leader, "Sta-
lin's name is an unextinguishable
light in the struggle for a general
peace and for liberation from
bloody, capitalistic slavery, for
the program of the peoples, and
of all mankind."
We shall find in Russia, then,
people indoctrinated or re-educat-
ed in a nationalism only equalled
by that of Fascist Germany. The
effectiveness of propaganda must
not be ignored. Unless constantly
reminded, mankind tends to for-
get the importance of his position
in the society we term "nation."
During peacetime, we in America
have neglected to turn the tech-
niques of our times to the purpose
of continuing our national unity.
Russia is not making this mis-

abroad their boasting. Directed to
