I building. They sent out a team
who into the rock forma formaj
j formaj tions looking for some sort of
subsurface faults that could be
causing the movements. Nothing 1
was found.
Mr. Calvin C. Greene. Director
of Plants and Grounds, said that ;
they don t know what is the
cause of the shaking. To help in
solving the mystery a device was
fastened to the building on May
2 to record any vibrations. So
far the device has failed to show
any violent shakes.
Mr. Greene said that "it has
happened, does happen, but we
cant find out the reason why."!
He emphasized that tnere is no
danger in the shaking, saying that
he himself would still live in the
building.
The device on the building is
running a continuous recording
and can give some indication of
the severity of the vibrations
However it is not a seismograph.
Thus far there is nothing factual f
that has been found and they <
have checked everything that can
be suggested. Nothing conclusive ;
has been found and it is an open openended
ended openended mystery. Mr. Greene said
that thev would continue to watch i
the building until something is
found out about it,

One important fact is that this
building only does the shaking
None of the surrounding buildings
are affected at all. <
This could he turned into one 1
of those solve-it-yourself myster- l

Tennis Court Lights
Held Up For Next Year >
By ROGTR LEWIS
Summer Gator News Editor
The Executive Council in its final meeting yester yesterday
day yesterday passed a polite request for Head Football Coach
Bob Woodruff to consider changing the sites of the 1958
and 1959 football games with the University of Miami.

The games were scheduled to
be played at Florida Field here
but Woodruff announced a few
J weeks ago that they would be
played in the Gator Bowl in Jax
instead.
1 Pete Fachtman re-entered a
resolution which he had offered
at Monday's council meeting. (See
story below i. Today's session was
a special meeting.
; The context of the request is as
follows:
* ¥
Resolution to Head Coach
Bob Woodruff
WHEREAS the athletic pro program
gram program of any university should be
conducted first and foremost for
the benefit of the students at that
I universitv, and
WHEREAS the majority of the
students at the University of Flor Florida
ida Florida desire to attend the Florida Florida,
, Florida, Miami game, and many of them
would not be able to do so if this
game is held during the Thanks Thanksgiving
giving Thanksgiving weekend.
* *
THEREFORE we fee] that the
scheduling of this gome at a time
when a significantly large num number
ber number of students would be unable to
attend would not be in accordance
| with the desires of the majority
|of the student body. We also feel
that the game should be played
at Florida Field rather than at the
Gator Bowl if the date is changed.
We. aB members of the Execu Executive
tive Executive Council, are obligated to base
our actions solely on what we be believe
lieve believe to be the opinions and desires
of the majority of the students
whom we represent.
v*
We lealize that there ai e cei ceitain
tain ceitain limitations that exist in the
scheduling of games'over which
Coach Woodruff has no control.
Taking all this into
tion, we wish to recommend to'
, Coach Woodruff that if it is at
jail possible, the date and location
J of the 1958 and 1959 football gam games
es games with Miami be changed to
sofne other week-end and be play played

of the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville.
We also recommend that, in the

Plans for the Silver Anniver

largest all-student show in the
world, are being completed this
summer, according to Tom

Gator Growl, held each year

show are held Friday night of
Homecoming.

"Well definitely be crowded
for time." Biggs said. "Thats
why all arrangements and
scheduling that can possibly
be done now is being worked
on by' the several-hundred mem member
ber member student staff."

Gradually Growl became a
larger production, adding skits, j

A big change occurred in 1947 |

were used along with the Home- j

body went all out to construct
house decorations around the
decorations theme, floats for j
the parade theme, and so on.

SUMMER GATOR POLL
Students Want
Miami Tilts Here

A Summer Gator poll yesterday
showed that an overwhelming
majority opposes Coach Bob
Woodruff's decision to play the
j 1958 and 1959 Miami games in
th e Gator Bowl instead of here
in Gainesville.
A majority of those polled said
| that they preferred rotating the
; games between Miami and
Gainesville, as done formerly, in instead
stead instead of playing the Florida "home
games in Jacksonville,
j 84 students were opposed to
transferring the Miami UF
games, 11 supported the charge
; and 5 said they "didnt care."
; The same amount of students
gave identical answers to a sec second
ond second question relating to the years
beyond 1958 and 1959. The stu students
dents students indicated that in the fu future
ture future (years beyond 1958 and 1959)
! they would prefer to have the
big Miami game rotated between
j Miami and Gainesvill e and not

A typical answer was "Florida
, Field is the home of the Ga Gatoi
toi Gatoi s and therefore the games
should be played there" Others
felt that there was "little dif difference'
ference' difference' where the grid tilts with
the strong Miami team should be
played.
The poll did not ask students
wnether they favored playing the
Miami game some time other
| than the Thanksgiving holiday, but
: most told the Summer Gator poll pollsters
sters pollsters that they would prefer the
games being played on some oth other

Fast-Paced Summer Session
4

Summertime comes in and the living
is tasy. Summertime goes out and the
situation hasnt changed.
This is the typical sentiment of Sum Summer
mer Summer Gator editors year in and year out.
It seems that each summer the student
newspaper claims that the eight week
session has been relaxing, enjoyable but
dull.
Perhaps this has been the situation in
the past. If so, we have approached a
milestone this semester, in that more
events of significance and importance
have crowded the front page of the Sum Summer
mer Summer Gator than in any summer edition
of the student newspaper in the past.
Starting with the fiasco between the
Board of Control and the Cabinet Board
of Education over the selection of Dr.
Allen as the new president of the state
university at Tampa, the Summer Gator
followed the news developments and
grave editorial support to Dr. Allen in
his quest for a suitable salary as head of
the new institution.
The situation, we are glad, has been
resolved, and Dr. Allen has undertaken
his new role as president of a university
which will be built from ground tip.
Politics also scored on the front pages
of the Summer Gator. A single, party
coalition for summer big 5 of Student
Government, Executive Council and Hon Honor
or Honor Court seemed to be a trend in sum summer
mer summer politics.
Homecoming, Gator Growl, the new
Dean of Men, features on foreign stu students
dents students at the university, summer activities,
sports, Board of Control, university ap appointments,
pointments, appointments, features, and a host of other
articles have claimed the attention of
our readers.

Editorially, the Summer Gator has
sought to represent the student view viewpoint

The New Vice-President

Naturally there has been much spec speculation
ulation speculation within recent weeks about the
choice of a successor to the post of vice vicepresident
president vicepresident vacated by the resignation of
Dr. John S. Allen.
Dr. Allen became president of the
new institution near Tampa yesterday,
and therefore the number two position
in the University of Florida administra administration
tion administration only awaits the word from Presi President
dent President Reitz before a successor will be
named.
There has been much speculation on
this score not Only because of the im importance
portance importance of this post in educational cir circles,
cles, circles, but because of a belief that Dr.
Reitz will not go outside the university
for a successor.
In the past, it will be remembered,
the University of Florida has often tap tapped
ped tapped someone from outside the state for
its top administrative posts. Dr. Allen
himself came from the New York edu educational
cational educational system jto accept the vice-presi vice-presidency
dency vice-presidency here in 1948.
In this case, however, it is believed
no such situation will occur.
There has been no attempt to in interview
terview interview applicants for the position,
which leads the Summer. Gator to the
conclusion that Dr. Reitz already
knows the next vice-president.
This is not to suggest that the man
has already been selected. Rather, it is
an indication that Dr. Reitz has narrow narrowed
ed narrowed the field down and will be ready to

didn't go up and sit where he
could see any of the extra extracurricular
curricular extracurricular activities fans are
best known for. He didnt sleep
in a dorm known to be visited
by the scholar letting off his
weekly pressure.
And he very probably was nev never
er never permitted to see anything on
that other campus except the
fine locker room, stadium, the
church of his choice arid the
coach's fine quarterback. It was
probably his first and only vi visit
sit visit before he signed up.
It is quite a difference from
seeing something as it reallv
exists on your own. arid from
seeing something as presented
on a platter

Reason why we're pounding
this out is that those Red
Oranges that chose Old Oak
Ridge and others over our
team is that they will find out
things for them are a little hot hotter
ter hotter here or not much different
than most other places, and
that they are just as human at
Old Oak Ridge U. as they are
here.
The only conclusion for me
here* and it ain't constructive,
is to not let high school students
visit our campus until they have
signed on the dotted line In
that way,*- I think Florida will
ge-t more than the share cf
jocks it wanted.
But then again, let the senior
in high school make up his own
judgment and let the next sever several
al several years see who was either the
bette-r salesman or who really
had the better campus
I would not advocate abolish abolishing
ing abolishing athletics We still have a
state legislature and this is still
a state institution.

school life that is hard not to
notice is the deafening roar of
the lawnmowers during classes.
They seem to take a special
liking to the grass right under
the windows and come back
two or three times to be sure
it is cut. I understand when the
lawiynowe-rs and hammprs
come together that a lion roar roaring
ing roaring could- not be heard at 7
paces, much less Dr. Bartlett.
3 One disadvantage of sum summer
mer summer school life that I happily
- avoided was the 7:00 o'clock
classes Most students do not
seem to function too well at
that hour f-ven when they do
get up Except for a few eager
beavers these classes are a
thorn in the student's existence.
When T was a freshman
T thought that there was some something
thing something to be gained bv getting
up at 7:40; so I scheduled 6
classes a wpek at that hour, and
it was the most painful semes semester
ter semester I have ever had .an school,
if you live in the dorms it is
almost impossible to get break breakfast
fast breakfast at this hour before going
to class and even if you could,
few want to get up the extra
half-hour to do so I can im imagine
agine imagine the complaints of the
roommate and wives when the
alarm goe* off at *OO a m or
earlier.
*
An even worse feature of she
7 oo class- is that it shortens
, the student's most effective stu study
dy study time which is at night. The
/ day is chopped up bv classes,
meals and -'what not." After
supper 10:00 or 11:00 comes
1 mighty quickly. Besides, late
hours.just seem to be part of
college life and dorm noise pre pre
- pre vents going tb bed too early.
5 J. The most trivial is that the
"I" of Florida in the Univer University
sity University of Florida at I.lth and Uni University
versity University is missing
Everyone says that summer
school is to be avoided but 1
believe is more time for
water skiing, reading bridge,
parties and work than during
the regular semester. I think
that this has been true for
man-v with the exception of mv
fellow law students who claim
to put their no=es *n the book
and never look up until the
finai3 are over.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

'Fare-Well' to Florida

Recently I have read several
articles about the feelings a

Usually the thoughts are hap happ\

feeling of saying farewell' c
to a long row of studies, wor worries

I, too. share many of these
thoughts and feelings yet 1
have to add something which is
to me much mo;e important.
Coming fro Germany, the
experience of going to school
here was something very spec;

never had a better opportunity
to learn about America any anywhere
where anywhere else but here on a college

about America. 1 also began to
love it and that is why I feel
I should include in mv "good
