It takes exactly one-fifth of a
second for this press to roll off
a copy of the Alligator which has
taken several days of hard work
to compose. Hours must be spent
on getting the news, writing and
re-writing the story, and head-.
lining it before it is eligible for
transformation into the lead cast
of a finished page.
Who does this? How is this
done? The answers to these
questions are In the story of the

By Ted Shurtleff
Among the first letters coming
in to the Alligator on the subject
"If I Were Editor" is one from
our "erstwhile" good friend and
reporter, Bob Browder.
We rather hope it won't win.
Robert has his ideas but we aren't
inclined to agree with them, al-
though the advertising staff, as
proved by performance, probably
is in accord.
Browder evidently has gleaned
the notion that this paper is domi-
nated by advertising. We won't
argue-we've been doing that with
the ad staff all along and it looks
o as though we're on the short end
of the deal.
Since this isn't in the line of a
-straight news story, and since
we're in dire need of reporters,
may we ask, "Where have you
been lately, Browder?"
Following is the gentleman's

THERE IS LITTLE DOUBT in any ones mind t h a t the
loss of Big John Natyshak will hurt the chances of the Ga-
tor grid machine next Fall. Big John had the ability to be
one of te most outstanding linemen in the South, if he had
stayed here at the University.
Reasons for his departure seem to be many and varied.'
The University officials gave personal and scholastic as
the two reasons. It had been rumored over the campus for
many weeks that he was dissatisfied with the financial set-
However this writer sees no reason for the students to
feel that all is lost for next Fall. We still have an exper-
ienced team coming back with one of the b es t coaching
staffs in the nation. We have an excellent line coach in Ted
Twomey who developed Bg John, and we believe that he
can find sore one else to fill Big John's shoes.
Coach Ray Wolf is no doubt one of the most crafty head
coaches in the South and you can bet your b o o t s he will
have a heads-up football team on the field next September.
We will stick with Coach Wolf and his staff, forgetting the
bad breaks they have been getting for the past two years.
THIS COLUMNIST WISHES TO TA K E THIS oppor-
tunity to personally welcome each and every high school
track man who r e p r e s e n t s 'his high school in the state
meet which will be held here Saturday. This is a good op-
portunity for all you Gator men to coax some more high
school athletes into this institution. The University of
Florida coaching staff can work 365 days a year trying to
get men to come here, but you students can spend one day
and accomplish as much.
It is your duty to take an active interest in the athletics
at this school. You are part of the school and the athletic
teams that carry the Oran g-e and Blue are part of the
school. We have to have top notch athletes if we are to
continue our climb to the top, so get out Saturday and talk

Here For Two Games
By Mac McGrew
After losing their third straight game and their third
of the season to Mississippi State, the Gator baseball squad
will try to get back on the winning side of the ledger with
games against Miami here today and tomorrow.
Bobby Adams will probably hurl the opener and s e e k
his sixth win of the season and Jack Gaines will get Coach
Fuller's nod Saturday. Gaines will be looking for his fourth
All Stars For
Finishing the year with a burst
of power, the West Florida Hell
Cats earned their first Indepen-
dent League intramural title by
nosing out the defending cham-
pion All Stars, figures released by
the Intramural Department show-
The Hell Cats wound up the
year with an aggregate of 1266
points, far ahead of the All Stars,
who finished in the runner-up slot
,at 1144 points. The Tarpon Club,
a newcomer this year, piled up
1087 points to end up in third
place while Seagle Hall and Crane
Hall rounded out the top five.
Piloted by Frank Edge of Nice-
ville, the Cats staged a colorful
duel with last year's champs
throughout most of the season, fin-
ally pulling ahead for keeps after
the swimming tourney. Following
volleyball play, the Stars held a
33-point bulge over their rivals.
But the Cats won swimming and

The Tarpons, composed almost

of 50 cents for each of the two

Aggregations from Mainland,
Robert E. Lee, Andrew Jackson,
Landon, Manatee, St. Petersburg,
Plant, Orlando, Hillsborough, Jef-
ferson, Sarasota, Fort Myers, and
Clearwater will highlight the ju-
nior-size Florida relay. Also enter-
ed are Fort Lauderdale, Miami
Senior, W. Palm Beach, Ponce de
Leon, Andrew Jackson (Miami)
Miami Edison and Miami Beach.
These teams will be divided into
five groups-each according to in-
dividual school size, and compara-
tive records in past years.
Several outstanding athletes are
entered in the meet. One of the
most colorful being Bill Jones of
Manatee High. This young cin-
derman has been a consistent win-
ner and is expected to come
through for the Manateeans. Jones'
time for the 120 high hurdles was
15.2 and captured first in the 200
lows with a speed of 23.6.
Probably the fatest of them all
is Clarence Lee of Jax who flies
through the mile at a clip of 4:34.7.
Jack Detweiler, also of Lee, raced
over the 880 in the record of 2:04.6.
Quarter miler Charles Sneed,
Landon sprint star, was top per-
former in the 440 race, outdistanc-
ing all other rivals with*a 52.7
In the field events Miami Se-
nior high boasts a stellar ath-
lete in Charley George, shot .put
artist. George heaved the 12 pound
shot 51 feet, 1 inch. His toss of
147 feet in the discus throw won
him the acclaim of many college
coaches attending the regional
meet In Jax recently.
The Gators started a ninth in-
ning rally against State, but a
fast double play killed it before'
any runs were scored and the'Ma-
roons took the game 7-5. With two
men on and none away, Gene
White attempted a sacrifice which
turned into a force out at third.
Ted Ramseyer then slammed a
hard hit ball into the hole between
third and short only to see Al
Grammas, State's thirdsacker,
come up with it and start the
game-ending double play.
Jack Gaines pitched seven hit
ball but four of the State hits
sailed over the left field fence for
home runs. Florida, outhit the Ma-
roons 9-7, but State's home run
production decided t he game.
Floyd Johnson started for State
and lasted until the ninth when
Bill Johnson came in to stem the
shortlived Gator rally.
State opened the scoring in the
first when Rex Benson, firstbase-
man hit a homer with one on and
then ran the score to 6-0 by scor-
ing two runs in each of the fourth
and fifth*frames. The Maroons fin-
ished their scoring in the eighth
when Benson hit his second homer
of the day.
The Gators scored four times in
the seventh after Gene White hit
a homer over the leftfield fence in
the sixth for all five Florida runs.
Willis Whittington got two for
two and Gene White two for four
for State. Benson hit two homers,
and Al Grammas and Bill Bragan
one each for State. White hit one
roundtripper for Florida.

Coeducation Is Here To Stay
In the Fall Frolics edition of the ALLIGATOR, we stat-
ed that the weekend would be a test of coeducation here.
We commented in detail on the success of coeducation up
to that time.
Another semester has almost come to a close since that
time. We have seen what the coeds can do. We have seen
them participate in all possible activities in dramatics,
politics, sports, social events, and service to the University.
Quietly and constructively, we are building a strong nu-
cleus for a well-rounded education. Fall Frolics w a s the
first test. T o d a y, coeducation is so much a part of this
school, we do not need to call this Frolics a second test.
Lack Of Campus Talent Shown
It seems strange that out of a student body of over 8,000
students, we can't find enough talent to fully represent the
University of Florida on a nation-wide talent show. ,
This coming weekend, Florida talent has a wonderful
opportunity to show its wares before the entire nation on
the Air Forces "On The B e a m" program, featuring Tex
Beneke and his orchestra.
The lack of Florida talent appearing before t h e audi-
tioning board resulted in a high school student represent-
ing us. It should be stated, however, that the auditioning
board did not realize that the talented young lady was not
a member of the University student body.
An effort was undertaken by the auditioning board to
clear a University student, Harvey Relman, f o r appear-
ance on the s h o w, but because of circumstances beyond
their control, it was impossible to do so.
The "On The Beam" program will be presented as plan-
ned, and sincere thanks should be forwarded to all con-
cerned for the hard work and effort that was put forth.

effort, a large portion of Ger-

with comparative ease, they com-
pleted a treaty with Finland.
Rumors from Turkey indicate
that such a treaty will be pro-
posed to that country. American
officials have noticed mounting
Soviet pressure on Austria. Italy
has only recently given Russian
expansion a rebuff.
The so-called American cori-
munist, inspired by the theoret-
ical communism that asserts the
equality and happiness of all men,
would perhaps credit the Rus-
sian success to the strong forces
of communism itself. To him,
Russia's expansion signrfies the
rightness and soundness of the
community doctrine. To him, the
economic-political factors of com-
munism, as put into action by
Russia, are behind the victories
made by the Soviet Union today.
But is communism the "charm"
which draws the small European
states into the, Russian sphere ?
Surely there is some type of
charm. We watched with horror
as Czechoslovakia joined the
ranks of the Soviet Satellites.
Somehow a relatively small group
seized power in Prague and regi-
mented the state even down to
the stamp collecting organiza-
tions. There were no great up-
risings by the little people of
the land. There was no battle to
the bitter end. Quite obviously,
the man-on-the-street had already
succumbed to the lures of Soviet
