Interior Decorating Art
By Forrest Taft
Interior decorating may be con-
sideered an art by the profes-
sionals, but to male occupants in
the dormitories on. the campus it
means simply Cheesecake and
Varga girl calendars.
The tastes 'in these artistic
creations vary almost as much as
the oscillating needle on a seis-
mograph during a cataclysmic
earthquake. In the more pala-
cial dormitories, we find that

Donald lead the pulchritude par-

appreciative of some of the eth-
real drawings adorning the

of our more cultured male stu-

goddess of song and dance, would

On arrival in Miami the stu-
dents were immediately divided in-
to groups and were taken through
the maintenance and service shops
of EAL by trained guides, in most
cases shop foremen. Inspection of
all phases of the multiple opera-
tions that keep the planes in the
air was undertaken.
Questions were freely asked
and answers obligingly given by
workers on the job, Not only did
students see at first hand the
mechanics involved in the op-
eration of the huge plant, but
got a real inside view of work-
ing conditions, and, manage-
ment labor relations.
Remarkable perhaps to most of
the group was the thorough man-
ner in which order was kept in
the shops. Most termed EAL one
of the "cleanest" mechanical shops
they had ever seen.
Monday night the students were
guests of the Florida Power and
Light Company at a banquet of
the Southeastern Association of
Scientists who were holding an an-
nual meeting in Miami.
Tuesday was occupied with a
general inspection tour of Florida
Power. and Light Company instal-
lations in Miami. Starting with a
tour of the huge Miami Beach
Electrical Power Plant, the trip
progressed through Miami, to the
main plant, the general offices,
and on to the Coral Gable Coun-

Coral Gables and an inspection
trip to a new plant being erected
south of Miami.

Is To Sell Democracy
EDITOR'S NOTE: This guest editorial is a condensed article of
"Democracy's Manifesto," the winning oration that won for James
H. Grant, Orlando, 17-year-old high school student, the first place
award in the National High School Oratorical Contest, sponsored by
the American Legion.
One hundred Years ago Karl Marx sent the cancerous Statements of
His Communist Manifesto around.the World. This document has been
the Bible of world Communism. Those of us who today have the re-
sponsibility of selling democracy to the nations can well take note to
the first sentence "A spectre is haunting Europe-The Spectre of Com-
The victory which we have won in the war has given us a respon-
sibility in peace. The people of the world, the freedom loving people
of the world,.look to America today as the last hope of the world.
If we intend to fulfill this hope, we must sell democracy to the na-
tions one hundred forty million Americans, salesmen for free-
dom, must sell democracy to the world.
The aim of the enemy "In short, the Communists everywhere
support revolutionary movement against existing social and political
order of things. They openly declare that their ends can be attained
only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions."
The aim thus outlined is no longer just idle words. Today it is one
of the greatest threats to our American way of life The time for
action is now, to preserve the ideals of freedom and justice.
And how shall we go about getting that action? What better way
than by a rebirth of interest in Democracy's Manifesto-?. .

Law School Will
The Board of Control ap-
proved 15 capital improve-
ment projects amounting to
}408,660 Thursday, to be
used from contingent funds for
the 1947-1948 school year.
First major project is the com-
plete renovation of the Law
Building and an addition to the
Law Library amounting to the
sum of $175,000. $125,000 more
will be needed to finish the addi-
tion to the Law Library, but this
sum will be requested as part of
the 1948-49 budget.
The physical plant of the Law
School is entirely inadequate
for the present student body
which exceeds 535 students.
Since there is reason to believe
that the size of the Law School
will continue to increase, it is
imperative that a permanent so-
lution to the needs of this school
The present law building i or

had little maintenance and no re-
habilitation since it was complet-
ed. Existing facilities within the
building are going to be re-ar-
ranged thoroughly renovated, and
fireproofed in order to make the
building safe and better adapted
/Other improvements p I a n n e d
are: separate offices for each fac-
ulty member, more classroom

restroom facilities for coeds and
men students, provisions for bet-
ter usage of the Law Library, new
extension for books and seating
accommodations, at present whol-
ly inadequate for the large stu-
dent enrollment in this college.
A new Military Stores and Ar-
chives Building will be consruct-
ed at a cost of $50,000. This'"build--
ing will provide' adequate, safe,
facilities to meet the need of stor-
ing military equipment and cloth-,
ing, and valuable and irreplaceable
records which are at present stor-,
ed..in the basement of tril aud,',-
rium arid the pr'--.i,:t.' '..f':.',
the business manager's office, and
the registrar's office.
The ground floor of the audi-
torium, when available, will be
converted into studios and prac-
tice rooms for the Department of
Music. This will be done at a cost
of $5,000. This area will also pro-
vide offices for the faculty and
restrooms for the students. The
location will offer easy access to
the facilities of the stage and the
organ in the auditorium.
$50,000 will supply sufficient
capital outlay for the purchase
of musical instruments and
equipment for any of the De-
partment of Music's teaching
activities or for the University
Band and the Symphony Orches-
Another general improvement,
backed by $15,000. will be the
buying of additional fuel tanks for
the central heating plant. This is
a must because of the doubling of
campus floor space within the last
18 months. It is also necessary
for the storage of more fuel sup-
ply in case of non-delivery by the
railroad, and because of the lack
of oil to meet the needs of the

ant The breaking of the chains of bondage rose to a mighty cres-
cendo all set in motion by fifty-five men meeting in Philadelphia.
In 1789 the Constitution was a piece of paper. Today it is a way of
life It is second only to the Bible in the effects which it has had
upon modern civilization. Perhaps the reason for this can be found in
the first three words of its preamble-"WE THE PEOPLE." .
The entire Constitution is a monument to the free man. Perhaps
the greatest power invested in the American citizen is the power
to elect his representatives in the government Yet, it is a fact
that only an average of one third of the qualified voters of/the na-
tion vote in a national election and even less In a local contest .
The ballot Is the greatest weapon that the people have against the
forces of aggression here in America When Americans realize
that the only reason that our Constitution has succeeded in the past
and the only way that it will succeed In the future is with the sup-
port of all the people, then and then only will we start to make in-
roads into the great problems of the day ...
These two powers, first, the power of electing the officials of the
government, and second, the power of Constitutional Amendment, have
made for the greatness of America Today, and their use either wisely
or unwisely will be the deciding factor of the nation's greatness tomor-
w-, rqw, The future of democratic civilization depends on the ability of
'Nhe Ariprican people to realize their responsibilities today.
A national program for the education of the citizens of Airgerica to
know their duties as well as their rights should be one of the foremost
weapons lb the fight influence in the United States. Of course, the
Ideal place for such education is in the schools, but the time is too
short to wait for another generation to come to power.
The combined'-forces of the press, radio, theater, movie and tele-
vision industries should be asked to help to inform the people about
their Constitution. We are tempted to say, "It can't happen here," but
it can and will unless action is taken now. The greatest weapon which
we have against the forces. of aggression here in America is a well en-
It is inconceivable that a person who has partaken of the vast
riches of our nation could give his support to organizations and po-
litical parties who are void of 'all allegiance to democracy; we must

If we cultivate the seeds of democracy in America today, we shall
reap the crops of peace in the world tomorrow.
Let's look at Karl Marx's statement: "A spectre is haunting Europe
-the spectre of Commiunism." Now, let's complete the statement: "A
spectre is haunting Communism-the spectre of truth."
Let the Constitution be our battle plan-We, THE PEOPLE, our

Then ahd only then will the spectre of Communism be vanquished.

The University of Florida band
appeared before a small audi-
ence in the University auditorium
Thursday evenipg under the direc-
tion of R. DeWitt Brown.
Playing a program which seemed
to me quite reminiscent of all
the past programs which it has
been my task to attend, the group,
at times produced acceptable
The marches which the organi-
zation played, were done rather
well. The various parts were done
with reasonable clarity and pre-
cision; in fact, they sounded quite
rehearsed. March Slav of Tschai-
kowsky, except for some unusual
clarinet effects, was pretty well
done, and to my deep satisfaction,
I found Meyerbeer's Coronation
March being played with more
spirit than it was recently by the
The piece, "Souvenir de Val-
-ence," featured some outstanding
solo work by Henry D'Amico on
the trombone and Darrel Carnell
on the baritone horn. As a matter
of fact this team made the con-
cert worthwhile, as far as I am
concerned. They displayed on
their instruments what might
very well be called virtuosity.
The performances were smooth,
balanced, and featured some
On my program I scrawled one
more favorable note about the
band. Under the Finale of
Dvorak's "New World Symphnoy,"
I find these words: "Some neat
and trick phrasing:" This refers,
as I remember rather hazily, to
some unusual effects which were
extracted from the music, and
which-h Ihad never noticed in the
many permormances which I had
On the other side of the picture
I find notes about badly tuned
instruments. This is probably be-
cause of the fact that members
of the band must furnish their
own-and because these are there-
fore of inferior quality, or some-
thing. However, I did notice that
the clarinets were pretty well
tuned together, and that so were
other sections within themselves.
Otherwise they had not too much
in common. Thursday evening I
discovered that if there is any-
thing more distasteful than a
discordant chord, it is the echo
of one, but that is irrelevant and
The Wagner Tannhauser se-
lections were done with very little
change in tempo-the bad tuning
showed up especially well, and
pretty generally the thing fell
flat. The Pilgrim's Chorus,
Evening Star, Dich Teure Halle,
etc., would incite as much appre-
ciation played on a hand organ.
Since I sat rather far back in the
auditorium, I am at a loss to
report whether the unusual his-
sing sound heard through this
number and others, was the
director attracting the attention
of the band, the band attracting
the attention of the director-or
a leaky bagpipe. If I am not
mistaken, however, there were no
bagpipe parts in the selections
All of this does not mean that
you can't give credit to everyone
concerned. The band, and' the
orchestra, too, for that matter,
operates under extreme difficul-
ties. Ah, but that's another story.
Maybe we'll talk about that at
at a later date.

Goal Set In Political Merger
We, as newly elected chairmen of the 'infant political party on the
campus, the GATOR ALL STUDENT Party, feel it our duty to pre-
sent to the student body of the University of Florida the basic con-
cept upon which the two former political parties have united as a sin-
gle unit to strive earnestly for the furtherance and maintenance of a
high caliber of student government here on the campus. The goal set
by this recently organized group of students is presented in the form
of a preamble to our constitution, which has been adopted in open
meeting attended by a group of students primarily interested in serv-
ing the University of Florida.
So that every student may hear and recognize the p 1 e d g e of the
GATOR-ALL STUDENT Party, we shall quote the entire preamble:
"We, the undersigned, in pursuance of our desire to serve student gov-
ernment and the University of Florida, hereby join together and unite
in the GATOR-ALL STUDENT Party and subscribe as independents
and political representatives of our organizations, to the Constitution

for those nine "also ran" outfits since the incomparable
Phi Delts have now won two consecutive titles, six out of
the last seven championships, and nine out of 18 crowns
since the record books went into effect a couple of decades
But it wasn't just another sleigh-ride for the champs this
time. The winners' m a r g i n over second place ATO was
only 60 points, and an ATO sweep of the softball tourney
-which very nearly came about-would have necessitat-
ed a change in ownership of the Fraternity title.
G e n e Bolick, conscientious PDT manager, informs us-
that ATO's second semester spurt had his team worried
plenty. "We regarded every team as a contender until late
in the year, and then we began to keep an eye on our next-
door neighbors," he reveals. "The turning point came
when we bounced back from a loss to the Pikes in the soft-
ball tournament to win six straight-including two from
ATO-and take the softball cup. Then when ATO didn't
do anything in the swim meet, we knew we were in."
Bolick named Jim Scott, Wally Gillette, Al Lindgren,
Bob Poage, Kirk Westcott, and George Ashby, as the big
guns behind his team's successful drive to the title.
When asked to disclose the formula behind PDT's
perennial powerhouses, Gene told us that the Phi Delts are
fully cognizant of the fact that intramural achievement is
a valuable short cut to campus prestige.
"We just get out and work, and it seems that we, want
to win a little bit more than the other frats," reports the
diminutive manager. "And I t h i n k our chapter support
plays a big part in helping us win.
BIGGEST MARGIN OF VICTORY, in any league was
chalked up by the Pi Lams, who finished 200 points out in
front of the runnerup Phi Taus in copping their first intra-
mural title. The Pi Lams were picked as the team to beat
before the season got under way and came through in fine
style after battling it out with several f r a ts most of the
Pi Lam Manager Sam Goldenberg asserts that the sche-
dule of sports was arranged in such a way that his charges
were able to stop worrying several weeks ago. "'We had a
fairly substantial lead going into softball and knew we'd
win handball-the last sport-without any trouble. That
sort of took the pressure off us."
Goldenberg was unsparing in his praise of the work of
the Margol twins, Hi and Ho, Elmer Oliphant, Al Kahn, B.
J. Weinstein, and Toby Hertz.

Pi Lams, Phi
By Bill Moor
Phi Delta Theta repeated that
, old story as they won the intra-
mural championship in the Orange
League and gained the right to
keep the J. Hillis Miller frater-
nity trophy for one year. With
this victory, the Phi Delts have
captured seven trophies since the
records were started in 1929. In
addition they won the champion-
ship for two years during the war
'when. all leagues were combined
into an all-campus league.
SDuring the first semester the
intramural lead changed hands
several times with SAE and PDT
in possession most of the time.
The Phi Delts took their final
lead as they outlasted SAE in
bowling. They were never serious-
ly threatened from that time. The
SAE's made a last ditch rally,
placing second in swimming and
winning handball, but it was not
sufficient to place them in the
lead. The Sig Alph's finished third
behind ATO, who although win-
ning only one cup during the year
were able to gain points as run-
nerup and wind up in the second
Take First Leg
Phi Delta Theta this year put
the first leg on the new J. Hillis
Miller trophy which will remain
in possession of the fraternity in
the Orange League which is able
to-capture it for three years. Last
year this same team retired the
John J. Tigert cup after a three-
way fight between ATO, SAE and
PDT who all had two legs.
The intramural season saw its
end Thursday as SAE and ATO
battled it out for the handball
championship with SAE coming
out on the long end of things. The
SAE team paced by Dawson Zeig-
ler and "Baldy" Koger managed
to whip all comers and annex the
cup. Burke Kibler paced the ATO's

Miami High Cops
Prep Track Meet
Miami High's Stingarees, one-
time powers in Florida track,' re-
turned to old time glory Satur-
day as they copped the annual
state prep track meet at Graham
Field, ending a five year reign
of Lee High of Jacksonville.
The Stings ran up 40 points for
their win, while Fort Lauderdale
edged Lee for runner-up honors,
scoring 35 1-3 points to the Jax-
ons' 33. Orlando with 30;, Hills-
borough, 24; Sarasota, 19; Jack.
son of Jacksonville, 18; St. Peters-
burg, 17; and West Palm Beach,
16 1-3, followed the pace setters.
Fletcher of Jacksonville Beach
ran away with the Class B title,
racking up 59 points to 45 1-2
for Bartow, 27 1-2 for Winter
Haven, and 27 for P. K. Yonge.
Charley Jones of Manatee was
easily the outstanding cinderman
of the day, setting new state
marks of 14.8 in the 120 high
hurdles and 23.2 in the 200 lows.
Miami High took an early lead
by virtue of Charley George's vic-
tories in the shotput and discus
and never relinquished it. Fort
Lauderdale was strong in the
sprints, taking both the 880 re-
lay and the sprint medley relay.
Ten state marks fell in Class
B competition as new records were
set in the shotput, javelin, dis-
cus, pole vault, high jump, 220, 200
low hurdles, 120 high hurdles, mile
relay, and 880 relay. H. L. Hiers
of Bartow smashed "B" marks in
the discus and high hurdles.
Ch. E: "A girl's greatest attrac-
tion is her hair."
EE: "Nope, I think it's her
smile. What do you think?
Civil: "I think the same as you
guys do, but I'll be damned if
I'll lie about it."
