The undersigned remind the students of the University of Florida that
W. H. (Robby) ROBINTON
Candidate for Sheriff of Alachua County
has, on more than one occasion, extended a helping hand to the student body.
Before the first primary election, ROBINTON was the only resident of the
county, candidate or otherwise, who went to bat to. put registration books
on the campus as required by law. ROBINTON, at his own expense and with
complete disregard for his political future, conferred with county officials,
made several trips out of town, and enlisted the aid of the Attorney General
-all in a valiant but unsuccessful attempt to get the student their just due
under the law. In the process, ROBINTON incurred the ill will of some inter-
ests which, we are sure, cost him votes on May 4.
Havirng failed in this attempt, it naturally followed that students on May 4
were required to vote downtown-whereas in the past the campus polling
place was across the street from the University.
For the above reason if no other (and there are many others) the under-
signed believers in good government heartily endorse and recommend to your
favorable consideration the candidacy of ,

Florida's "most cherished tra.
dition"-the Honor System i;
now in the process of being
strengthened and stiffened, as a
sweeping drive toward that enc
got underway this week under the
joint leadership of the student
Honor Court and Florida Blue
Reacting quickly and effic-
iently to what they termed a
,serious crisis" in enforcement
of the Honor Code, student lead-
ers met with President J. Hillis
Miller Wednesday morning and
mapped out a campaign which
they hope will restore the sys-
tem to its pre-war prestige on
the Gator campus.
Quentin Long, chancellor of the
Honor Court; W. McL. Christie,
president of Florida Blue Key;
Bob Ghiotto, president of the Stu-
dent Body; and Roger Holmes,
president of the senior class, com-
prised t h e student delegation
which conferred with Dr. Miller.
Upon emerging from the. Presi-
dent's office, the four student of-
-ficials issued the following state-
"In view.,, of the serious crisis
now facing Florida's most cherish-
ed tradition, the Honor System,
which is constantly being ignored
by many of us, and deliberately
flouted by others; and realizing
the serious consequences which
would inevitably follow should the
system deteriorate any farther;
we, student leaders at the Univer-
sity of Florida; are making a sol-
emn and searching appeal to ev-
ery University student and faculty
member to do everything within
his or her power to aid us in en-
forcing and abiding by the honor
code and restoring this sacred
heritage to its rightful place in
the hearts and minds of Florida
"The seriousness of this sit-
uation cannot be over-emphasiz-
ed. This is especially true in
light of the fact that final
examinations are to begin al-
most immediately. It is our fer-
vent hope that every Florida
man and woman will accept it
as his individual responsibility
to see that violations of the
Honor Code are reduced as far
as possible, and that wilful vio-
lators are immediately reported
to the Honor Court for trial."
President Miller has given as-
surances to th. student leaders of
his full cooperation and assistance,
and under his guidance, the fol-
lowing five-point program was an-
nounced,' and will be put into ef-
fect at once:
1. An immediate session of the
academic council will be convened
by Dr. Miller, and he will person-
ally instruct the assembled: deans
and department heads with the
gravity of the situation, charging
them with the responsibility of
orienting every one of their subor-
dinates on the nature of the crisis,
and steps to be taken.
2. The President of the Uni-
versity is sending a personally-
signed letter to each individual
lacuity member, asKing Tnat
they "throw the full weight of
,their influence" behind the
drive. Faculty members are ex-
pected to "explain and empha-
size" the honor system to their
classes between now and the
final exam period. Purpose of
the faculty letter is to reiterate
the importance of faculty con-
tribution, and to insure that no
professor is overlooked in the
"briefing" by the deans.
3. Responsible undergraduates,
Chosen by the committee which
met with Dr. Miller, and drawn
from the executive council, Honor
Court, and Blue Key, will make
brief speeches to assembled stu-
dents just prior to each exam,
outlining the objects of the Honor
System, how to report violations,
and individual responsibility in
making the System work.

Allen, Arnall said that he was
here to speak on some things
that "I want to talk about, and
that need to be talked about."
He has spent, much time in
traveling over the United States
since he gave up public office,
and believes that there are three
schools of thought on the way to
maintain peace. There are those
who believe the hope of the United
States lies in military might,
those who believe the atomic
bomb will keep peace, and those
who look to the United Nations
as the answer to problems.
Arnall states that "peace cannot
be predicated on force or on fear."
He asked, "While we are moving
forward in international affairs,
don't you think we should put
our own house in order?" He
spoke of the criticisms often made
of. the South, and said that it
actually has no more faults or
virtues than any other part of
the country, but they are easier
to find here.
The speaker asserted that he
wanted to see the South com-
pletely united with .the North,
and that he favored more
industrialization and education-
al progress in the South.

By John H. McCullough
So far as honor is concerned, I am inclined to be selfish and I wish
to heartily recommend that view to you. Aside from the admittedly
important moral aspect which is attached to support of, and adherence
to the precepts of the Honor System, the student who cheats, does you,
who do not, a severe disservice.
Our aims while attending college vary but in one regard at least we
find a common ground the matter of reward for effort, in short, our
gardes. We work hard for grades, we forego pleasure in pursuit of
grades. These grades are the evidence, whether satisfactory or not, of
what we have learned, to what extent we have improved our mental
There is a tendency among most of us to judge our fellow student's
ability and capacity on the work, which he performs, the. grades he
receives being the evidence. And, what's more, we are judged by him
on the same scale.
If these things were of importance only while in school, that would
be one thing, but they go further. In our home towns, r e o p 1 e will
gauge our calibre by the level of our college work, former fellow-stu-
dents may select or discard us as an employee or as a business part-
ner on the basis of our ability as a student, certainly, prospective em-
ployers will be interested in our college record.
Perhaps the greatest importance which grades have to the individual
may be found in their effect on self-esteem and personal assurance,
two important characteristics for success in any field. When a man
puts in earnest effort, imagination and ingenuity, and gets results, his
stature has been magnified in his own eyes and that's good.
So grades are important, how does the teacher decide what they
shall be? On a comparative basis-between student and student. They
may be the result of a formal curve actually plotted on a chart or,
more likely, they may result from an informal curve, the teacher's
past experiences with other pupils and the progress which he knows
students in general are capable of. But regardless of particular meth-
od, the standing which we achieve in class is dependent greatly on the
standings of others in the group.
Therefore, from a completely selfish standpoint alone, it is to our
personal advantage that others receive no extraneous aid in writing
papers, test and exams. The cheaters gain is your loss. YOU have lost
and YOUmust accept the blame if you have failed to back the honor
system to the utmost.

This Is The Campus, Too
'Just Second Hand Barracks'
But Home To Florida's Veterans
By Jack Shoemaker
The Flavet villages (Florida
Veterans) were constructed for
veterans and their families on the
University campus when their
number became too great for the
facilities then available.
The housing units are second-
nand barracks purchased from the
various branches of the armed
forces, but they are home to all
those students living in them.
There are three of the villages
and they are now occupied by sev-
eral thousand students and their
Within these villages, there are
governments which act the same
as governments ih small cities.
Each has several commissioners
who are elected by the people.
'These commissioners appoint a
mayor, who is the chief executive
in the village. Residential man-
agers are appointed by the Uni-
versity to take charge of all the
maintenance and supply Work. The
commissioners meet once a week
to iron Out the wrinkles of trou-
bles that arise.
A tax is levied upon each fam-
ily to take care of all incidental
expenses, including the oil and
electricity used by all the families
in the washhouse. Supplies Which
are needed during the course of
the year also are paid for by this
fund. The rent, which is very
low according to the existent rent
levels, pays the salaries of the

I Our mythical chow-line-easily
the world's longest-would be
comprised of nearly a million and
a half guys and gals, a qfiarter
million more than the record vet
enrollment of 1,209,000 last year.
So great is the demand that
many colleges and universities
have been forced to fix a ratio
of admissions between veterans
and non-veterans to afford recent
high school graduates a chance of
getting a higher education.
Dr. Francis J. Brown, secretary
tf the American Council on Edu-
cation, says the tremendous en-
rollment increase is due to the
fact that previous estimates of
both college and .VA officials on
the number expected to quit
school were far in excess of the
total who did so.

sive and limited, and University
enrollment was increasing. The
acute housing shortage at the Uni-
versity caused the married stu-
dents to petition the Federal Gov-
ernment in an effort to bring sur-
plus war housing units to the
campus. The students formed a
Committee on Housing and ap-
pointed Fred Turner as chairman.
The Committee sent t el e-
grams preceding the petitions
to the representatives of Florida
in the National Government as
well as- to Housing Expediter,
Wilson Wyatt. A state-wide ef-
fort was also conducted among
the American Legion and of-
ficials of the state government
to bring the critical situation to
the attention of the public.
April 30, 1936, the Student Com-
mittee on Housing appeared be-
fore Governor Caldwell and his
You Tell 'Em
cabinet in Tallahassee and pre-
sented the facts concerning facili-
ties at the University. The Com-
mittee really talked effectively be-
cause the Governor and his cabinet
were favorably impressed and or-
dered the director of the State
Improvement Commission and two
members of the Student Commit-
tee to go to Atlanta and present
the cast to the regional office of
the federal Public Housing Au-
thority. Fred Turner and George
Kates went to Atlanta and were
joined there by the University's
Assistant Business Manager,
George F. Baughman. The F. P.-
H. A. allowed Baughman to apply
for additional units, bringing the
request of the University to a total
of 500 units. ,
By this time of the 500 units
requested, only326 were already
allocated, and of those, only 100
units were in service ahd 76 under
construction. In a comparison with
all Southern schools, Florida had
more married students than any
other, yet ranked eighth in num-
ber of housing units available.
Finally, the Student Commit-
tee on Housing saw its efforts
pay off. Early in May, 1946,
the assignment of units by the
Federal Public Housing Author-
ity to the University of Florida,
was increased by 300, making a
total of 626. The cost to the Fed-
eral Government was $990,000.
The State Cabinet quickly ap-
proved an additional $240,000
necessary to provide site and
public utilities for the additional
housing units, making a total of
$1,280,000 for the project.

Turner and the Student Commit-
tee on Housing, in cooperation

FROM RIFLES TO HOES
Gardens Improve Diets,
Reduce Grocery Bills
By J. Francis Cooper
Editor, Florida Extension Service
Veterans and their wives in
Flavet Village III on the Univer-
Sity of Florida campus are re-
dtucing grocery bills and improv-
ing nutrition by growing gardens.
Clustered between every two
buildings-two-story b a r r a c ks

and around the edges of the area
are thriving gardens now pro-
viding delicious, wholesome har-
vests. Around 200 families, or
almost half of the 448 families in
the village, are growing gardens.
Last Wi / :r the U. S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture called for
two million Fgeedom Gardens in
1948. Flavet III veteran families
fell right into line and have met
one hundred thousandth part of
the national goal. These veterans
are answering their country's call

these gardens have approval of

placed little restriction as yet
on size of the cultivated areas.
Gossip has it that the question

These veteran gardeners grow
lettuce, radishes, mustard, tur-
nips, carrots, cabbage, snap beans,
corn, tomatoes, lima beans, beets,
spring onions and other vege-
tables in fairly wide variety. And
they cultivat, water and care for
them regularly and assiduously.
No mother ever gave her off-
spring more tender care than
most of these families lavish on
their garden crops. The veteran,

to wield a hoe all do their shares
in the garden.

Reflect Spirit In Clothes
G.I. Shoes And Saddle Oxfords On Today's Campus
Are Not Indications Of American Way Of Life
By Roger Long
The Sheik with his racoon coats
and yellow slickers, and the flap-
per with her short skirts and
boyish bobs-what a pair they
made! To them belonged an era,
which our generation's parents
so fondly refer to as the "scor-
The college wheel of 20 odd
years back, in his blazers and
24" pants bottoms, found fun in
the number of pipes in his col-
lection, swallowing goldfish and
doing the Charleston with his
favorite "sheba". Those days
don't doubt it, were strange days.
Coming up through the years,
the colleges and schools of these
United States have slowly seen
the skirts grow long, then -short,
then long again; coed hair go
from short bobs, to bangs, to
curls and a hundred other twists
and turns. The college man has
evolved through an equal number
of shapes and sizes-from long,
wide-bottom pants to short, nar-
row ones, topped by coats and
sweaters of every design and
color in the rainbow. Yellow
gloves, hip pocket flasks, caps,
galoshes and bows, beads, high-
heeled pumps and Spanish shawls
have appeared iin various years,
only serving to emphasize the
changing college fads.
The present day campus, how-
ever, is a far cry from the cam-
pus of past years. The coed of
today, as before, is a reflection
of the contemporary woman in
attitude as well as style. Her
hair is as she pleases to wear
it or in the manner which flatters
her the most. Skirts have
lenghtened, with the every-day
costume styled along serviceable
lines. The extreme is held for
ligliter moments. The campus
male of '48 is a conglomeration
of G. I. issue and high school
Harry. The veteran with his
khaki and the high school grad
with his saddle oxfords and slacks
without doubt make one of the
strangest and most unusual com-
bos seen in many a year.
What the start of a style fad
is and what causes it to end
are questions as yet unanswered.
Nevertheless, whatever the col-
lege Joe and Josephine wear will
remain an integral part of that
peculiar scheme of things, The
American Way of Life. And in
their own way, campus styles
will reflect the spirit of growing
America, the college crowd.

Nutrition Laboratory Experiments
Here Use Radioactive Materials
By Sandy Greer
When the conversation turns
to atoms, radio activity, and re-
search, thoughts wander off to
some island in the Pacific or a
little town in Tennessee called
Oak Ridge. There's no reason for
this because workers in the Nu-
trition Laboratory here on the
campus are using radioactive ma-
Many types of experiments
on nutrition are carried on at
the laboratory but the most in-
teresting are those using radio-
activity, elements. Dr. U. L.
Comar, a specialist in nutrition
and radioactivity, said that min-
ute amounts of such elements
as cobalt, phosphorus, and cop-
per are necessary for normal
health in animals. The problem
is to find out why this i* so
and to learn just howmuch of
each element a given species
is likely to need.
Small amounts of radioactive
elements are injected in, or fed
to, experimental animals. Then
by checking the radioactivity of
blood and excretions of the ani-
mal, or by tissue examination
after slaughtering, much useful
knowledge is gained.
Siince these experiments star-
ted over four years ago, about
200 rats, 50 rabbits, and 40 cattle
have been used.
New instruments of all types
are purchased frequently. The
best possible equipment is used
to carry on the studies and pro-
tect the personnel.
Protection of personnel from
radiation is a constant concern
of the laboratory. Workers wear
a smal metal badge that holds a
piece of film. If the film is found"
Course In Related
to be cloudy when developed, then
the worker has been exposed. Gei-
ger counters give a constant
check of radiation in the area
and clearly show the limit of
safety has been exceeded.
Dr. C. L. Comar, as director
of this work, keeps in close con-
tact with the Oak Ridge plant,
having made several trips there.
He says cooperation with the
government is increasing and re-
ports are submitted from time to
time to the Atomic Energy Com-
mission on the nature and pro-
gress of the work.
This fine work has attracted
the attention of scientists from
all parts of the world. They
have read the articles published
by the nutrition staff fin lead-
ing scientific journals. Others
have heard papers read by Dr.
Comar at scientific gatherings
throughout the country.
In answer to the demand for
trained personnel in radioactive
research, the University is offer-
ing for the first time this semes-
ter a course for graduate students
on modern methods of instrumen-
tation, radioactivity, and tracer
studies. This is on*t of the few
courses of its kind in the country.
Geiger counters serve as a
method of checking radioactiv-
ity of samples and as a warning
device to lab workers, who
might become overexposed to
the radiations. Several differ-
ent types of counters are used,
each one for a specific purpose.
When the University of Florida
was pioneering this branch of nu-
trition study back in 1943, the
radioactive cobalt and phosphor-
ous were produced by the cyclo-
tron at the Massachusetts Insti-
tute of Technology, but now these
materials, and in addition, cop-

John Hay Told Lincoln
Most Of Rebels In Army
President's Secretary Reported Florida
"Well-Nigh Depopulated" During War
Florida was a "well-night de-
populated" state Feb. 8th, 71 years
ago, according to a vivid descrip-
tion written to President Lincoln
by his private secretary, John
Iay, from Florida in 1864.
Taken from the "Robert Todd
Lincoln collection of the papers
of Abraham Lincoln" of which
the University of Florida re-
cently received a microfilm copy,
the letter accounts for the de-
population by so large a por-
tion of the "rebel population"
being In the Army and so many
of the "loyal people", refugees
in the North.
Hay had been sent to Florida as
the president's personal agent and
joined a military force which held
Lhe Jacksonville region to obtain
loyalty pledges from the tenth of
the state's voters necessary for
a new state government under
Lincoln's proclamation of Decem-
"1 have found among the few
Lading men I have met," wrote
Hay to Lincoln, "a most grati-
fying unanimity of sentiment.
Those who have formerly been
classed as conservative are will-
ing to accept readily the ac-
coiaplished events of the war
those of more radical views who,
Swe had reason to fear, would
rather embarrass us are heartily
in favor of your plan as ex-
hibited in the case of Louisiana
"The people are ignorant and
apathetic. They seem to know
nothing and care nothing about
the matter. They have vague ob-
jections to being shot and having
their houses burned, but don't
know why it is done. They will
be very glad to see a govern-
ment strong enough to protect
them against these every-day in-
cidents of the last two years.
"I have the best assurances
that we will get the tenth re-
quired: Although so large a
portion of the rebel population
is in the army and so many of
the loyal people, refugees in the
North, that the state is well-
night depopulated. We wil have
almost a clean state to begin
Hay's optimistic expectations
were not borne out. A military
reverse at the Olustee River forc-
ed the Union army back to the
coast, and Hay returned unsuc-
cessful to Washington. A recon-
struction state government was
not created for Florida until aft-
e- the close of the war.
All students who plan to work
during the vacation period are re-
minded that their employer will
need to see their social security
account number card when they
go to work, if the employment is
covered under the social security
The Social Security Administra-
tion office at Gainesville will give
a duplicate card-if you once had
a social security account number
and have lost your card-or a new
account number card if one has
never before applied.
For the convenience of students,
a secretary will be in Room 2G8
at Florida Union Tuesday to as-
sist with the procedure.

TEN HOURS NOW CAN SAVE..FOUR YEARS,
Vocational Guidance Tests
Program Offered Gratis
By Art Reich
Would you devote three evenings
of your time in order to possibly
save four years of your effort?
Taken at tirst glance this would
appear to be a leading question.
Nevertheless the vocational guid-
ance service of the University of
Florida stands ready to help you
do just that.
This department, officially
khnoWn as the BUreau of Voca-
tional Guidance and Mental Hy-
giene, tested more than 400 stu-
dents last seinester. It gave a
sianEering total of about 5~000
indli idual tests.
Briefly the program consists of
three evening periods, each' o'f
three-hour duration. This is fol-
lowed by one-hour personal ihter-
view, for a total of 10 hours.
The testing consists of a set of
12 exams, some timed, some un-
timed. These tests are diversified
and give an insight to the quali-
fications and abilities of the indi-
vidual. Some of the aspects cov-
ered are speed, general ability,
personality, interests, reading, and

He also said 'hat it would be
possible to regulate requirements

there is a lack of qualified men
to fill these positions.

3 THE FLORIDA ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 20, 1948
By Bill Boyd
Alligator Sports Editor
THE FINAL DAY IS HERE. We can now pack up our
typewriter and go home for another s u m m e r. This has
been nine months of good and bad times. The sports pages
of the F 1 o r i d a Alligator have been good and bad, too.
Tru6, we have had many compliments, but worse than that
we have had a few bad remarks. We have done our best
to give you an up-to-date college sports section. Just like
all of the other students in the school, we have to attend
classes also. We have missed many things that we would
have liked to have covered, but conflicting classes have
made it impossible for us.
When we started two papers a week, it gaye the
sports department more of a chance to b r i n g you the
every sport even break.
Our intram l coverage has been the best since Coach
Cherry took oveas director, according to him. With many
different organizations taking part in intramurals, we have
tried to give all of them an even break, but that has almost
been impossible. According to Coo a e h Cherry, the Inde-
pendents and Dormitory groups have gotten more publici-
ty than ever. This is something we have tried to do, as it
creates more interest in groups that need it.
We have received many letters criticizing our writing,
both good and bad. We have printed many of them, but
many of them were unsigned and it is against the policy
of all good papers to print letters with no signatures.
With the last few lines I would like to express my ap-
preciation to the athletic department, the sports publicity
department, and all of the coaches who, have listened to
our troubles and have given us what information they were
able to give.
The staff has done an excellent job with the little time
they were able to give to this job. Among the men who
have worked so hard are: Julian Clarkson, John Willi-
ford, Tom McDonald, Charles McGrew, Lee Hawes, For-
rest Taft, Gerald Lossing, Bob Weatherly, Sandy
Schnier, Steve Weller, and Steve Grimes.
Thesemen have assisted the sports editor by the hours.
Many thousands of words have gone through the hands of
the students without any credit bylines.
SLast but not least is the man who has given the sports
department a free hand, and who has always tried to give
us exactly what we want. Pen Gaines, editor-in-chief, has
done everything in his power to h e 1 p the sports depart-
ment. He has worked with us to the u t m os t. Again, a
hearty thanks to all who have given their time andl-effort
to this department.
Thanks for everything.
Gator Athletes End Up And Down Year
By Forrest Taft
Edged out of fifth place in the
annual Southeastern Conference
track meet by a half point, the
University of Florida track team
returned home this week in sixth
place, a position they have held
for the past two years.
Louisiana State once again
proved their claim to supremacy,
in the meet by edging the strong
Auburn team, thus winning their
thirteenth victory in sixteen out-
ings. The Plainsmen gave the
boys from LSU a rough time of
it, though, as they relinquished
their early lead to go down to de-
Auburn's team piled up its
short-lived advantage when Fred
Carley and Whitey Overton placed
first and second, respectively, in
the mile run with a time of 4:21.8
seconds. Overton came through la-
ter for the Plainsmen by outlast-
ing his rivals in the two mile run,
emerging victoriously in 10:01.2
Bengals Pull Ahead
LSU field event victories in the
closing moments of the meet prov-
ed to be the necessary margin of
success for the Louisiana track-
men as they overhauled Auburn
by copping the 220 low hurdles,
annexing second and third in the
pole vault, and walking away with
the high jump honors when Ro-
land Knicht broke the only con-
ference record by clearing the bar
at 6 feet 5% inches. This new
mark eclipses by three-eighths of
an inch the old record set by
Kelly Hearn of Alabama in 1939.
The Orange and Blue spikesters
gathered 16% points, placing in
six events. Most of the Gators'
counters were taken by the field
event men as was expected. George
Hills enjoyed the most success, de-
fending hiS SEC shotput title with
a first, heaving the ball 48 feet
11 inches. Hills came back later
with a third in the discus throw
with a toss of 137 feet 8% inches.
This throw, however, was not long
enough to surpass LSU's first of
195 feet recorded by Ben Lowther.
Other' Gators placing in the
meet were Bill Atkinson, fifth in
the javelin throw; Sam Comman-
der, who tied two others for third
in the high jump; and Tom Tay-
lor and Leroy Poucher, who split
with Ben Lowther, LSU, and
Payne, Auburn, in the pole vault.
Tom Bevis was the only other
Florida cinderman to place in the
track events, which this year were
studded with star performers from
all over the South. Bevis took
fourth in the two mile run.
Paul. Beinz of Tulane racked
up 10 of the Green Wave's total
points as he won handily in the
hundred with a 9.7 seconds and
copped the 220 race with a smart
Firsts were recorded by Pen-
nington, Auburn, in the 120 high
hurdles; Dickey, LSU, in the 440,
in 48.4 seconds; Buddy Fowlkes,
Georgia Tech, in the broad jump,
with 22 feet 11% inches; Ren-
shaw, Georgia, in the 880, in
1:56.4; Korklk, Tennessee, in the
pole vault, 13 feet, 2 inches, and
LSU's mile relay team of Coving-
ton, Sullwold, Butler and Dickey.

The Hatters produced both runs

RING OUT THE OLD: Jerry Klein bowed out as a stu-
dent intramural director at the intramural banquet last
week after winding up an incomparable stint of six years
in the department. Since the fall of 1939 when he broke
into the department as-a green freshman, Klein has been
an integral part of intramurals at Florida. During his ten-
ure in the student director's post, the intramural program
here has enjoyed its biggest and best year with participa-
tion having soared to new heights.
Jerry was originally appointed student director for
the 1942-43 year, but "the bugles blew and I couldn't
run fast enough," he jokingly remarks. After serving his
hitch, Klein came back to the U of F to work his law de-
gree and promptly got back into the intramural depart-
ment. Director Spurgeon Cherry named him to the top
student post a year ago.
We want to wish Klein luck after he departs in June
and we'd like to enter here the hope that future student di-
rectors will fill the bill like he has.
RING IN THE NEW: Bill "Turkey" Moor, a lanky red-
head who can be spotted by the "McCarty for Governor"
button that adorns his shirt, is all set to step into the post

more work than almost any other two men. Moor has

SINCE THIS IS OUR SWAN SONG in this corner, we'd
like to compliment Coach Cherry and his staff on the ef-
fectiveness with which they've carried out the transition to
the vast intramural setup that is now offered to the stu-
dent body. We also want to urge the many students that
are included in the intramural program to maintain the
cooperation, spirit, and drive that have placed Florida in-.
tramurals among the best in the nation.

across University Avenue but this
has eased the waiting in line for a

Synonyms At Florida
Assistant Director of Housing
Carl B. Opp-former Florida stu-
dent, now Florida official has
lived on the campus almost con-
tinually since his student days
which began in 1935.
During this period of residence
at the University, Opp has risen
to assistant director of housing.
Long University Service
He served as graduate assist-
ant to the director of residence
from 1939 to 1940, when he be-
came executive assistant in the
Bureau of Employment and Place-
;ment, dean of students' office, in
1940-41, After graduation he
served as assistant director of res-
idence until 1942, when he took
over the reins of acting director
of residence for the period from
Through the war years and the
hectic housing conditions accom-
panying them, Opp became well
known to the students on the
campus. Besides his regular con-
tacts with students at the hous-
ing officee, many boys came to
lknow him through his direction of
'the monitor system and his long
period of dormitory residence.
In the fall of 1943, in his capac-
ity as director of residence, Opp
took over six fraternity houses
which were comparatively inac-
tive at the time, and placed stu-
dents in them In this way both
the fraternities and the students
benefitted from the use of the
Plant High Graduate
Born in DeWitt County, Illin-
ois, young Opp attended an Illin-
ois school. Later, in January of
1928, his family moved to Florida
where he entered the Ballast
Point school in Tampa. In May of
his first year in Florida, 12-year-
old Opp was stricken with polio,
but he went on to continue his
schooling and was graduated
from Plant High, in Tampa, in
1935, with high honors.
While going to Plant High, Opp
was a member of the order of
DeMolay, Associate State Scribe,
acting president of the student
body, editor of the school annual,
football business manager, pres-
ident of the National Honor So-
ciety and junior Rotarian.
Active As A Student
Four years at the University of
Florida added a long list of ac-
tivities to Opp's record- He began
with the office of finance chair-
man of the freshman clase's exec-
utive committee, added the 'Phi
Eta Sigma honorary fraternity in
1936 and served as its president
in 1936-37. He was a member of
the Honor Court in 1937-38, and
served as associate editor of the
Florida RevieW and the "F" Boolk.
He received the Sigma Delta
Chi Scholarship Award,' made Phi
Beta Kappa honorary fraternity,
was secretary of the Univyersity
Union Political Party in 1938, and,
served with the Executive Council
during the 1938 summer session.
From 19,35-37 he was student as-
sistant in the office of the dean
of students and s rved as assist-
ant in the library. In 193.8-39, he
was executive assistant in the
Student Labor Department.

Seminole Comes Out On Time
Departing from the distasteful custom of past years, the
staff of the Seminole has produced an annual that will be
in the hands of students before they finish examinations.
To Editor Al Carlton must go congratulations for run-
ning one of the biggest annuals in the nation on schedule.
It will be a pleasant feeling to read the S e m i n o 1 e next
week instead of many months from now.
Hotter Classes Await Students
Along with the news that another top enrollment is ex-
pected for Summer School comes the revelation that there
will be six days of classes per week and the class hour will
be one hour and -twenty minutes in duration.-This seems
exceedingly strange, since last Summer we had the biggest
Summer School enrollment in the University's history, and
the classes were only 65. minutes long.
Not only do we have exceedingly long classes, but the
selection of courses that are being offered for the Summer
Session aren't exactly the best that can be -had at a Uni-
versity this size. It seems that instead of emphasizing the
importance that a Summer School of this size assumes, the
consensus of opinion seems to be, "It's going to be awfully
hot .. let's offer our poorest courses and let nature take'
Printing Plant A Must For Growth
It has been learned here that the cost of printing of next
year's campus publications has increased so much that the
Alligator will be cut in half, the Orange Peel, a third, and
the Seminole, a fifth.
This report should emphasize the Alligator stand on ac-
quiring a University of Florida printing plant. With every-
thing else on the campus expanding, it' does seem mighty
funny that the publications have to decrease.
The Board of Student Publications has been do in g a
wonderful job with what it had this year. The new board
spent almost a full night this week trying to solve those
problems arising for next year's publications.
May we soon find a concerted effort to put publications
up with the school.

Students should find that this honor system is for them-
selves. When the students finish school and enter into the
busy scenes of life, they will be useful members of society
and qualified to s e r v e themselves and families, if they
have achieved honor.
We must remember that a man learns to do by doing,
that education comes from within, that the period you are
going through now is particularly favorable to the devel-
opment of self-government. This honor system is for you,

Staff Reminisces As Year Closes
With this issue, the Florida ALLIGATOR closes its pub-
lications for the 1947-48 term.
This is almost the only place where this year's staff can
look back. We have had always to look to the next issue
week after week. .
We have attempted to present a student paper through-
out this year, and we have gradually built up our equip-
ment and office space that was in keeping with the ex-
pansion program this past semester.
We have printed more than 150 pages this semester, one
of the biggest, if not the biggest, Alligator in the history of
Beside the bigniess, we have constantly placed projects,
campaigns, contests, and other goals throughout each is-
sue. We have taken definite stands this year for, ideas that
would help the student body and the University.
We stood for: A bigger Alumni Association; a Univer-
sity public relations program; better infirmary and cafe-
teria; a bigger post office; continuation of the honor code
and student government in better ways; a University print-
ing press; building the groundwork for a great coeduca-
tional school; campus rehabilitation program, and on and
With 'a final comment, we want to urge higher ideals, a
greater unity, and more spirit among the campus activities
in the years to come.

Are we to make the vile as-
sumption that it is the best?
In America, we tend to think
so. For here we have concocted
the theory of "the bigger the
better" and with tremendous
drive we connive to achieve the
bigger. Cultural Europe, when
its hunger was not so intense,
often looked at us with disdain
as barbarians who do not compre-
.hend the finer things iin life.
Europe had some right to con-
sider our system as an educational
Ford plant putting out finished
and polished jobs, each alike and
each with its certain value-and
But if our graduates are prod-
ucts dumped off the end of a
conveyor belt, then the power is
erratic and some vital depart-
ments have been skipped.- For
some things are definitely mis-
sing and the final products are
incomplete. Like cars without
steering wheels or like railway
engines without tracks, we do
not know where to go.'
We need not roam far afield
to find an example. At the Uni-
versity of Florida it is practically
impossible for a non-history ma-
jor to get a firm grasp of Amer-
ican history. One such course,
from the Colonial period till today,
cannot be complete in less than
12 semester hours. A six-hour
course in American history is de-
signed for Public Administration
students and requires two pre-
requisites. That is the limit of
U. S. history at our University.
In a time when the world
situation demands a rededication
to democratic principles and to
the American way of life, the
majority of University of Flor-
ida graduates are leaving to face
a hostile world prepared only with
the cherry tree legend.
There are other flaws in our
marble palace of education. We
make Humanities compulsory, but
we see no need in buttressing or
explaining our predominate re-
regions. And as though these
conditions were not enough, many
of us are 'crippled by being
specialists, for we have probed
only into one restricted field and
have no knowledge of the invis-
ible motivations of man.
Our school is one isolated in-
stance, but multiply it by the
number of higher educational in-
stitutions today, and the grad-
uates they produce, and the
picture assumes a darker hue.
When we march out on Florida
field June 7, the worst mistake
we could make lies in the direct on
of presuming that we are edu-
For while we are proud pos-
sessors of many miscellaneous
facts, we have not yet fitted the
jig-saw puzzle into a pattern.

Education has not, and perhaps
cannot, furnish us with the train-
ing we really need-the training
of the intuition. For the time is
papt, if it ever actually existed,
when man could sa'y that he had
grasped all the wisdom of the
day. No longer can we read one
set of fine books and'assume that
we are prepared for life. For
while perhaps there are 'no new
ideas under the sun, at least
new applications crop up every-
day, and we cannot know enough
to cope,with all.
Therein lies the need for in-
tuition. For only with the power
of cognition or insight can we
deal with the rapidly changing
thought of our time. Only then
can we choose between right and
And not among the least that
intuition will reveal to us is the
fallacy of our material world.
It shall teach us that all about
is decay, but that somewhere is
realness and eternity and good-
Someday, perhaps not until the
declining years of our lives, we
shall learn that the best things
in life are free .

Bring Grant To U. of Florida
I would like to commend the Alligator for the printing of Jimmy
Grant's "Democracy's Manifesto." It was my pleasure to hear him
deliver his oration at the recent State American Legion Convention in
Jimmy competed with some 250,000 s t u d e n ts from all over the
country to win this $4,000 scholarship from the American Legion. This
is not the first contest he has won top honors. His record is:
In 1947: 1. Won State National Forensic League, and Second in
the National Forensic League Competitions.
2. Top honors in the International Knights 'of Pythias
speech contest. *
In 1948: 1. Again, won State National Forensic League competi-
tion and goes to finals in Nationals this month.
2. Won top honors in the American Legion National ora-
torical contest. -
Jimmy is Vice-president of his Orlando Senior High School Junior
class; and a member of the Order of Demolay, National Thespian So-
ciety, Broadway Methodist Church, and National Forensic League.
Why all this? The University American Legion Post hopes to have
him there to address the student body sometime this Summer, and to
sell him on the Univ. of Fla. He graduates from high school in June
and this is certainly an opportunity for the Univ. of Fla. to secure an-
other National Champion Speaker.
Ga. Tech and a couple of other schools are trying to get him, and
we are urging all groups and individuals here to get behind our. move
to sell Jimmy on the Univ. of Fla. Our Speech Dept. has already start-
ed to work.

I think, and deserves at least a
paragraph of praise, space for
which, I wish I had. Gloria Palter
was a very amusing cook. Bev-
erly Nelson, Mary Jane Miles, and
Batty Hall completed the cast.
"Outside," an original one-act
by Clay Fields, completed the
bill. If campus writers can pro-
duce other pieces o- this quality,
I think they certainly deserve per-
formance. Even though "Outside"
qualifies in my books as a drama-
tized incident rather than a play,
Fields accomplished some effec-
tive changes of mood and a very
good curtain. The play concen-
trated on moods rather than on
ideas and left me, at least, a
little unsatisfied. However, the
moods v-ere handled very well.
The cast consisted of Jerry Merlin,
George Kennedy, William Mor-
row, Dick Anderson, Thomas
Hicks, and Charles Parks.

Thursday saw the second bill
of one-acts presented by the Flor-
ida Players with, student direc-
tors from, the Drama Department.
While the whole program wasn't
up to the quality of the last one,
it was fairly worthwhile. All the
plays were quite unusual and

quinade by Evrienov called "A

part and very well, I thought.

Pierrot was quite effective in
playing his inimitable self. By

Second one-act of the evening
was Saroyan's "The Ping-Pong
Players" directed by Russ Foland.
In this play it seined that the
actors were definitely handi-

was unusual to see a play built
around a ping-pong game, but the
effect the author intended did
not seem particularly clear. James
Mooney, Rosemary Flanagan, and
Eunice LsClerc were the victims
of the script, although their
efforts were valient. Still, I think
people were glad to see the thing.
