College Joe is Back in Town
Thousands of College Joes are back in town today.
College Joe is the typical University of Florida alumnus who has returned to
his alma mater to celebrate the 1957 Homecoming and to see what time has
wrought on the Florida campus.

College Joe, typical of another era
and a different outlook on college life,
will find that the Blue Key Homecom Homecoming

the spirit of the University student body,
in its determination to make this Home Homecoming
coming Homecoming one of the finest in history.
College Joe will find the University
scene far different than when he left
the University, even if that were only a
few years ago. Today, there is a greater
emphasis on scholastic achievement,
with more and more students clamor clamoring
ing clamoring each year for admittance.
The State Board of Control has raised
the entrance requirements for all stu students

the caliber of student here is a more
conscientious and studious one.
However, while the outward signs of
scholastic achievement are evident, lit little
tle little emphasis is today given to the non nonclassroom
classroom nonclassroom intellectual life of the campus.
Too few stimulating debates, discussions
and lectures are held at UF, and not
many students seem to care.
Extra curriculars have also felt the
pinch as the trend continues to greater
concentration on the scholastics.
College Joe will find the physical
plant of the University expanding in all
directions. With millions of dollars of
new state funds, dormitories, classroom
buildings and new parking lots are
springing up to the extent that the
walking to class problem is now a ser serious

Much of this expansion is being fi financed

More Money for More Editions...

The problem of how to get more year yearbooks,
books, yearbooks, more Alligators, F Books and
Orange Peels for the student body has
plagued the campus for eons. The Board
of Student Publications, in turning down
a Student Government Executive Coun Council
cil Council request for more yearbooks, has
added a new twist to the problem.
The Board Wednesday voted down
the request for B,OCFO Seminoles to be
distributed next June. Instead, the Board
sent back to Student Government a bud budget

the yearbook.
As it stands, 6,500 is a 500 increase
over the number of annuals distributed
last year. But still, Student Government
claims, there are not enough Seminoles
for each student who wants a copy.
The Board, in vetoing the request,
gave as its reason the fact that the Sem Seminole

000 yearbooks were printed. Although
the publications reserve totals many
thousands of dollars, the Board con contends

the reserve, and therefore a more perm permanent

What the Board really wants is for
Student Government to give the year yearbook

or else pay for the additional Seminoles
out of its own pocket. With only $4 of

No provision is made in the Student

and therefore the Honor Court is delib deliberating

The Alligator would recommend a

In this way, the matter would be set settled

in particular it didnt set too

They took a poll and it was

Needless to say, all of this
was to no avail. The game is
still scheduled for Jacksonville.
Bob managed to hold his posi position

No Election Choice

The elections that were held
last Tuesday were a clear pic picture

life on this campus.
There were three universal
facts about these elections. The
first was that the two parties
participating in the elections did
not have anything to do with
political principles. The second
universal feet was the two par parties

from fraternity sorority head headquarters.

was that the biggest portion of
those who cast their vot*s were
either fraternity sorority mem members
bers members or those who are affiliated
with them.
The independants did not have
any choice in these elections
because both parties had their
headquarters under the arch of
the fraternity sorority alliance.
We do not have anything against
the fraternities and sororities
or against the respective mem members,
bers, members, but the thing is that the
independents did not nave any
choice in these elections.
They had to vote for this
group or that group despite the
fact that the differences be between

minor and negligible for all
practical purposes at least from
the view of the independent.

think. We realize only too well

that as long as he shows a

ignored and consequently, his
job will be secure. He knows full
well that the smaller the num number

games the more tickets can be

He also knows that its quite
difficult for the students to tra

games, particularly since half of
them cant have cars in Gaines Gainesville,

travel the less likely we are to

Rush Before School,
Say Florida Coeds

Gator Staff Writer
Sorority rush is finally over,
and the majority of girls on cam campus

After four weeks of planning, pre preparation,
paration, preparation, and hard work, sorority
girls have been rewarded by ma many
ny many new pledges of their choice.
But despite the final outcome
of rush week, there are many
criticisms of our system of rush
here at Florida. These complaints
come from sorority and indepen independent
dent independent women alike.
Exhausted by the series of rush
parties plus silent period, when
sorority women and rushees are
not allowed to speak, many girls
feel it i was time changes were
made to relieve some of the strain
of formal rush.
Suggestions have been made for
having sorority rush before clas classes
ses classes begin, as the fraternities do.
Other ideas speak for a longer
period of time before formal rush
parties, to enable the girls to get
to know each other better.
In this week's Alligator poll,
twenty girls were asked the ques question,
tion, question, What is your opinon of the
imethod of sorority rush used here
at Florida? Although opinions
varied, it was generally felt that
some improvements could be
made in our present rush system.
Some individual opinions were:

dont really get to know the rush rushees.

too. The freshmen girls need help
during their first weeks here, and
the sorority girls cant help them
because of rush rules.
Benita Coker, 2UC Being
a transfer student from Florida
State, I of course compared the
rush methods used in the two
schools. At Tallahassee sorority
rush is completed before classes
begin. If at least part of rush
here at Florida could be taken
care of during the period be.ore

can. But Its really rush in
every sense of the word. I think
we felt the strain more this year

weeks after classes begirt we can

approve of our method.

When asked about future plans

expections for the future. The
first prdject on Stanleys agenda
for future expansion is a Wo Womans
mans Womans Gym. The gym is to be
built in the Broward Hall area.
Incorperated into the gym will be
an indoor swimming pool, which
can be opened to an outside patio
for sunning. A bowling alley wdl
also be included in the plans for
the gym.
Stanley also stated that future
plans will include play areas
located in the vicinity of all the
living areas. The first step to toward
ward toward this goal is the new in intramural
tramural intramural field, located across
from Fraternity Row.
Also in conjunction with the
new track and tennis courts being
built west of the baseball field
will be dressing and shower faci facilities
lities facilities and another check-out room
for intramural equipment.
Few people realize that the
present gym was built eleven
years ago, and is inadequate to
handle the needs of the increase
in students during that period,
Stanley commented.
He also stated, We feel that
we have a definite need for ex expanded
panded expanded facilities, and when there
are no more demanding needs,
than ours on campus, and funds
become available there shall be a
realization of our plans.

wooden stands, had just been
erected on the west side of Flem Fleming

of the present stadium. 0
In those days, football was also
a drive-in affair. Cars were al allowed

bonfire was effective, each fresh freshman

The first real Gator Growl
was begun in 1932 at Florida Field
with the now famous sportscast sportscaster,

huge bonfire and fireworks. This
was also the year in which the
Gator Pep Club was formed and
the first time the card section
