With only a short transitional pe-

many men, especially those in the

importance of our honor system.
An honor system's purpose is to
develop personal integrity which
is a most essential quality for suc-
cess and happiness; to this end
our energies (speaking for the en-
tire Honor Court) are devoted.
"Many men are perhaps not
aware of the serious and last-
ing consequences of an Honor
Court conviction. A loss of cred-

personal college record will also
bear the brand which could
prove to be an insurmountable
obstacle in post-college life

To Become Inactive
For Summer School

last meeting of that organization

Theta, vice-president; Jack Sul-
line, Phi Kappa Tau, treasurer;
and Hal Combes, Pi Kappa Phi,
Most important business under-
taken at the Tuesday meeting
was the decision that the IFC
would be inactive this summer.
This decision means, in effect,
that fraternities will be able to
initiate elibible candidates for
membership during the summer
session, with prior permission
from the Dean of Student's
Office, but no -fraternity will be
allowed to rush or pledge any
new men. It also means that
there will positively not be an
IFC Summer Frolics.
The IFC has appointed a com-
mittee from among its member-
ship who will work during the
summer on a new rush booklet,
a copy of which is to be given to
every incoming male freshman.
The present pamphlet has been
pronounced obsolete, but a re-
vised, up-to-date number is sched-
uled to be ready by the opening
of the fall term.
Will Be Given
A second program of four one-
act plays will be presented Tues-
day at 8:15 in P. K. Yonge Audi-
torium. As on Thursday night,
there will be no admission charge.
First on the program will be
"The Glittering Gate," directed by
Herman Shonbrun, Tampa. His
cast has only two people, Jim
Mooney as Bill and Jack Platt as
Jim. Jerry Merlin will be an off-
stage voice. Original music for the
novel play has been composed by
Thomas Holland Fay, Jr., Gaines-
ville. The play by Lord Dunsany
concerns two dead thieves who
attempted to force their way into
Noel Coward's "Fumed Oak"
will be second on the program, di-
rected by Elihu Edelson, Sarasota.
The part of Elsie is played by
Judy Courtney; Doris, by Mervin
Thomas; Mrs. Rockett, by Helen
Harris, and' Henry Gow, by Edel-
son. This is the story of Henry
and his rebellion after 15 years of
living a meek family life.
Lou Fields, Jr., Jacksonville,
will direct "The Boor," by Anton
Chekhov. He has Greta Andron
and Ralph "Erd" Wilson, the
Dauphin and his mistress in "Joan
of Lorraine," as Mrs. Rapora and
Smirnov. Russ Foland plays the
part of Luka. This is a farce-
comedy of a Russian courtship be-
tween a rich widow and a desper-
Last on the program will be an
original, written and directed by
Barton Johns, Tampa. The story,
entitled "A Sequin Smile," has
Louise Livengood as a burlesque
queen; Gloria Palter as a schem-
ing stripteaser; James Dee as a
philandering house manager, and
Whit Palmer as an alcoholic. Off-
stage voices will be Mildred Lang-
ford as Mary Jane and Johns as
Interfraternity Conference, and
the Florida Independent Council

tus for the coming two summer
sessions, although the FIC has
placed several committees in
charge of- activities for summer
All campus fraternities and
sororities were contacted this
week, and each one has voted to
go inactive this summer, but at
the same time, voted to keep
the houses open to accommo-
date brothers attending summer
The majority of the campus
clubs and organizations, which are
active during the regular term,
have announced their inactivity.
All the sororites contacted will

which has not decided yet. Alpha
Delta Pi will rent space to older
women students attending the
In the meantime, registration
figures indicate that 3,600 of the
students now in school, have
signed for the first session.
Deadline for students not in
school to register will be tomor-
.row, May 15, and this number
is expected to raise the total
closer to the 5,000 mark.
This clearly shows that the
campus will still remain Ative
with a full load of classes and
regular campus life, but this news
of a giant Summer School activity
was overshadowed by other news
of the inactivity of student, organ-
izations that make up the other
part of college life.
Highest total enrollment of any
semester before the war was 3,456
students in 1941. The entire cam-
pus organizations were function-
ing full force.
This summer, with nearly
1,500 more students, the cam-
pus organizations have chosen
to remain inactive.
Student government and poli-
tics will continue, it was learned
this week, as political parties
have already organized for the
Rushing. .and S.ummer Frolics
were eliminated by tr ina.:ti.,..
of the Interfraternity Conference
during the sessions.
A few of the campus leaders
have begun to ponder over this
question of an inactive campus,
with cause for alarm coming with
the announcement of more organi-
zations going inactive.
Last summer, IFC held' its an-
nual Summer Frolics. This year,
with IFC also going inactive, stu-
dent government .aspirants hope
to still have a full-fledged Sum-
mer Frolics and social calendar.
The food problem will not be as
acute as it might seem, with many
fraternities expecting to double-
up for meals as an economy meas-
ure to insure meals being served
during Summer School.

Miss Elizabeth Barry Is Schoolmarm
Par Excellence At P. K. Yonge School
By, Forrest Taft
Probably the busiest schoo4l-
teacher in the state of Florida
is Miss Elizabeth Barry of P. K.
Yonge High School. Her diligence
and hard-working air have won
her an exceptionally high rating
in high school and college circles
around the United States.
The majority of Miss Barry's
duties have to do with national
and international meetings and
conferences on education. She
attended the meting of Inter-
national Federation of Univer-
sity Women held recently at
Toronto, Canada. Miss Barty was
one of the delegates from 23
countries over the world. During
the war years of strife and strug-
gle she was director of the Inter-
American Demonstration Center
in co-operation with the Inter-
American Institute and College
of Education. In the years of
hig:. prices and inflation, 1946-47,
Miss Barry worked in Washington
with a conference on Inter-
National Relationships and Edu-
cation at the request of the
National Education Association.
This September Miss Barry will
travel abroad to attend the
International Geographical Union
Congress which will run from
September 21 to 29. Always
influential in educational circles,
the popular third-grade teacher
is known widely for her work in
the field of geography. The

Everything must be all right
with the ALLIGATOR-at least
that is what the response to our
"IF I WERE EDITOR" contest
would indicate. So far we've had
exactly four letters and about
the most important point brought
out was that dormitory league
sports should receive more ade-
quate coverage. Naturally, we
agree and we'll try to see to it.
An engineering student, just re-
turned from Miami, wrote Wed-
nesday questioning why the field
trip to. Miami was not covered in
Wednesday's paper. The answer
was simply that the paper goes
to press Tuesday evening, and that
the layouts of pictures promised
by the engineering department did
not reach us until even the Fri-
day deadline was passed.
' Evidently the student body feels
pretty good about its paper and
that makes us, the present -editors,
feel the same way. Just the same,
if you have any ideas on the sub-
ject of what you would do if you
were editor, we wish you would
pass them along.
Response was so small to the
first week's contest that our board
of judges decided to combine it
with the second week's. Remem-
ber to qualify for next week's
contest, your letter must be in by
next Monday noon and must be

4 THE FLORIDA ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, MAY 14, 1948
By Bill Boyd
Alligator Sports Editor
FLORIDA'S TRACK TEAM WILL BE FIGHTING for a
top berth in the Southeastern Conference track meet this
afternoon and tomorrow. They have a fair chance to grab
an excellent rating. They have dropped only one dual meet
this year, that to the favored Georgia Tech entry. Natural-
ly the Gators' points will be gathered by the field events.
George Hills should again win his shot put. He is the pres-
ent title holder and no one seems to be able to hold a can-
dle to him in the conference.
Bill "Tiger" Adams, Gator dash man, should get a place
or two in the 220 and the 100. We believe that Bill will
have trouble winning the 100. We understand that Bob
Benes of Tulane ran a 9.4 recently, which is exactly what
the world record is. We hope that Bill has fully recovered
from his recent injury as he will need the speed, we are
G e o r g i a Tech and LSU seem to be the two teams to
watch. Florida with a good day, could give either one of
them a real battle. Don't count the Gators out for the meet.
THE GATOR BASEBALL TEAM REALLY got hot this
past week-end and romped over the University of Miami
Huricanes with ease. Bobby Forbes, Jack L ed o u x, and
Gene White paced the Gator battles. At the present time
they have a 10-11 record. They have four games remain-
ing, two with Rollins, one each with Avon Park and Stet-
son. Florida will win three of their four games for a 13-12
record for the season.
CQACH HERMAN SCHNELL'S TENNIS team will meet.
the best in the South when they take part in the Southeast-
ern Conference tourney this week end. In fact they are
likely to take a terrific licking before they get home. Tu-
lane is favored to retain their net title with ease. Florida
has gotten some valuable experience this season, meeting
two of the best collegiate tennis teams in the country. Mi-
ami and Rollins are tops for this part of the nation.
THE HIGH SCHOOL STATE TRACK meet this p a s t
week-end did much for the University. It gave the local
coaches chance to see some of the top high school ath-
letes in action. In fact they saw a real hurdler in Charley
Jones of Manatee. This fence skipper set two state records
that will stand for some time to come. He seems desinted
for Minnesota, we learned over the-week-end. It would do
Florida good if they would get out and try to get this lad
to enter here next fall. Don't you think ?
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE TWO FRATERNITY
loop winners in the intramural leagues. The Phi Del 1 t a
Theta entry and the Pi Lams deserve a pat on the back for
their fight to the f in i s h. The Phi Delts have long been a
powerhouse in Fraternity murals, but the Pi L a m s won
their first league title in the newly formed Blue League.
Again we say the splitting of the frats into two divisions
was the most progressive step taken since the appointment
of'Spurgeon Cherry to the directorship.

Discussing the School Bond
Amendment, Dr. J. E. Dovell, also
professor of political science,
points out that improvement of
the state school system is of high
importance. He praises the 1947
Legislature for its "constructive
action in assuring better educa-
tional facilities for the children
of the state."
"The new Bond Amendment,"
he writes, "is a definite advance
over the present constitutional
provision for school bonds since
it does provide an alternate au-
thority for school bond issues
pledged with moneys aui-.':zed
and apportioned by the Legi' a-
ture for school and capi-al ir-i-
provement and outlay purposes."
The new method, under the
amendment would authorize scho';l
boards to anticipate annual sta'e
capital outlay allotments ($300 psr

bonds provided the freeholders ap-
-This method, Dovell states, in-
sures adequate school improve-
ments without having to levy fur-
ther property taxes for debt ser-
vice. This will reduce political
pressure encountered in popular
bond elections. For "as this new
method does not depend on local
taxes, chances of freeholders ap-
proval for school expansion needs
are greatly increased."

A Goal For This Summer
The expected enrollment of the 1948 Summer S c h o o
probably will be higher than any figure of any regular s(
master before the war, higher than last year's Summer Seq
sion, and probably will be surpassed only by the regular
semesters since the war.
This should mean an active campus this Summer, with th
spirit and entertainment of a regular college semester.
But news flowing into this -office from campus organize
tions indicate that students have been voting to place their
organizations on an inactive status all except the regular
Summer School student government.
IFC and FIC both voted for inactivity, which would elim
inate rushing and a IFC Summer Frolics. All fraternitie
and most of the other campus organizations have voted fo
All this word of inactivity should not deaden the hope
of Summer School students. On the contrary, student
should take this as an incentive to push ahead on a campus

ff VII. CONCLUSIONS
is There comes the time when we
must count the returns, weigh the
's result, and tie the loose ends. For
Id that reason, we take one las
glimpse at the nation we cal
We found over two hundred
s, million people living in the larg.
P. est country in the world. We
b found these people regimented be-
ginning at the tender age of
twelve, and we found them sub-
jected to the most vicious and
most determined propaganda ir
the world today. We found theiz
form of government democratic,
. but we also discovered that the
g rigidly enforced one-party system
subjected the Soviets to the rule
of the very few.
But we have not fooled our-
*, selves into believing'that this gov-
ernment functions against the will
of the people. For the six million
Communist party members, much
less the few in the Politburo, could
l not rule this vast land without
the active consent of many and
the tacit consent of the masses.
S- We cannot deny that with the
ir snap of the wrist the people of
Russia could break the back of
We found Russia's leadership
largely a personal one, for the
a- symbol of Lenin and Stalin are
ir perhaps stronger powers in Rus-
Ir sla than are, in the United States,
the symbols of Patrick Henry or
George Washington or, more re-
1 cently, General George Marshall.
S We found that Russia is at-
)r tempting to fight one type of
Westernization with another type
of Westernization. For while Rus-
sia hates and rejects the capital-
s ists and capitalism, she heartily
9- embraces the industrial techniques
d of the Western world. As we saw,
._ Russia is gambling that a Russian
d peasant taught the life of an
d American mechanic will not think
or feel or desire as does the Amer-
,t ican mechanic.
)t And we accredited Russia's
d "charm"-her ability to attract
and hold both people and nations
n -to two strong factors.
One of these factors was the
S idea of economic "equality" which
, was to result in both cultural anc
, political equality. And this was
the idea that raised the hopes of
the lowly feudalistic peasant from
the black morass of history. In the
way of material benefits, Russia
offered to do in five years what
the Western world had done in
The other "charm" of Russia,
and this was the greatest attrac-
tion for her satellites, was her
multi-nationalism. We noticed that
within Russia proper are amalga-
mated 16 constituent republics
and 49 recognized nationalities.
And to the battered and torn
small countries around, a union
with Russia would draw them
from the role of pawn that they
have played in international poli-
And now, if we turn to the pos-
sibility of war with Russia, we
shall find that it is not as im-
mediate as once thought. For Rus-
sia, as we know it today is young,
since it was not born until 1917.
It was, and still is, a backward
country, industrially. And it has
just survived a crushing war, in
which it suffered from 12 to 15
million casualties (including the
wounded and missing). The only
other country with such a large
number of casualties was Ger-
many with something over nine
million. (The United States suf-
fered about 1,136,000 dead, wound-
ed and missing). And the people
of Russia saw this war at first
hand, and the country felt its
direct and devastating results.
'It would, however, be entirely
foolish to rule out a future war
with Russia. .
The idea of Communism is not
new. It was _probably not new dur-
ing the time of Jesus, when 15
miles from Jerusalem the Essenes
held all property and labor in com-
mon. Thus Communism, and the
newer conception of a proletariat
revolution which is still theory
and yet unproved, has never
spread to any world-wide degree
in 20 centuries.
The concept of Communism will
not die. But Communism as a
force shall lose its vitality pend-
ing two developments. One of
these is the continuing Westerni-
zation of Russia, for she cannot
give men time to think and still
maintain the oppressing political
hierarchy. If she succeeds in ac-
complishing Western industrial-
ism, men will have time to ponder
less strict means of life. The Rus-
sian people themselves will veto
The other condition is that we,
the Western world, must empha-
size the difference between the
Russian and Western ways of life.

POLITICAL STEW: This col-
umn's prediction of the campus
vote for governor being split
largely and closely by Fuller War-
ren and Dan McCarty was pretty
accurate the three Gainesville
precincts in which students voted
gave McCarty 89 more votes than
Warren out of an estimated stu-
dent vote of between 1,800 and
2,000 Shands came in third in
those precincts and English was
fourth Here's a good indica-
tion that "politics makes strange
bedfellows" Bob Ghiotto, stu-
dent body prexy, tells us that he
is for Fuller Warren and his op-
ponent in the recent campus elec-
tions, C. J. Hardee, Jr., echoes the
same sentiment not only that
but outgoing Student Body Prexy
John Crews and Frank Stanley
whom he beat out for the presi-
dency last year by six votes, also
favor Warren The Warren
men are also happy locally be-
cause they claim that Dr. John J.
Tigert, president emeritus of the
University, favors their man .
However, it's generally agreed by
both sides that either Warren or
McCarty will be good for the Uni-
versity, providing no University
of South Florida is created .
In campus politics, Bob Ghiotto,
who failed to receive approval for
his coalition cabinet (which in-
cluded some Varsity Party men)
because the Varsity dominated
Executive Council wanted two
men in the cabinet whom Ghiotto
refused to appoint, has indicated
that his appointees will serve as
a "kitchen cabinet" (work with-
out official approval) if the go-
ahead sign is not forthcoming
from the council.

dent Body Prexy John Crews, long
a non-fraternity stalwart, is now
sporting an ATO pledge pin .

last week as Florida Blue Key
president for the next regular se-
We must strive to perfect our re-
publicism, to advance our tech-
niques, and to place more stress
on the spiritual rather than the
material aspects of life. We must
draw a sharp line, noting and
pointing out that Communism is
materialism personified while de-
mocracy is of the spirit. We must
not consider any compromise be-
tween Communism and democ-
We have, then, a challenge. The
winning of our war with Commu-
nism lies in the direction of in-
ternal improvement, not in ex-
ternal battle. War has not yet
killed an idea.

Tex Beneke and his orchestra
have cleared out, the frat and so-
rority houses are cleaned up, and
the boys around here are cleaned
out. And another Spring Frolics
week end has passed. I wonder if
many students are going to pass
as easily as Frolics did?
Speaking of passes, some guys
had to have passes to get in the
dance the other night. Others
tried a few passes, unsuccessfully,
and still others passed out.
That gymnasium Saturday night
was one picture of a struggling
mass of humanity if ever I saw
one. What a mass! I wouldn't ex-
actly say it was crowded, but one
couple was pushed so close to-
gether that when the dance was
over she was wearing a tuxedo
and he looked positively stunning
in a pink formal.
The decorations in the gym
were positively dazzling. Some
guy said the way that paper was
hung made him dizzy. Seemed to
me that, from the way his eye-lids
hung, he was the one that was diz-
zy. And not from dancing.
I never saw so many strapless
evening gowns in my life. You
know, it's amazing the way these
girls defy the law of gravity. Or
is it gravity they're defying? One
thing is certain. Those beautiful
gowns sure brought out the light
in the boys' eyes, among other
thTngs. I saw all my friends there.
One was standing by the band-
stand, and the other was under it.
I peeked under there once and ask-
ed him if he was alone, and he
said, "Yes, and we'll be out in a
During intermission, most of the
couples strolled outside to get
some fresh air. I guess it was a
little too much for some guys,
'cause a lot of girls said it made
them too fresh.
One girl said she had to slap a
boy's face six times. But I didn't
really feel it until the fifth slap.
After intermission the band
went back to play and the boys
went back in to play around. A
lot of celebrities were at the
dance. So was Morty Freedman.
Morty said it was so crowded in
there that half the time he didn't
know what he was doing. Which
struck me as unusual.
It's amazing how much girls like
to dance. Some avuhorities state
that it's only natural that girls
know how to dance. Well, nature
sure short-changed some of them.
I wouldn't want it to get around
that some of those girls couldn't
dance very well, but I've seen ele-
phants move more gracefully.
Some of them looked stiff as a
board. Others were just bored, and.
the rest were stiff.
Well, most of the boys are look-
ing forward to the next Frolics.
And why not? After all, where
else can you hear the best in mu-
sic, dance with a beautiful woman,
get looped, and get your pants
pressed, all for three bucks?
