John Paul Jones, chairman of

Bod Move at a Bod Time

The Executive Council Finance Committee Sunday night decided to buck the
Board of Student Publications and request the full Executive Council to go full
steam ahead with 8,000 copies of the Seminole.

This action is being taken shortly af after
ter after the Board vetoed a Council request
for 8,000 yearbooks, on the grounds that
this would create a deficit of some $5,-
000 in the Seminole budget for 1957-
There is ample money in the publica publications
tions publications reserve for this expenditure, but
the Board contends that since the Semi Seminole

tion appropriation for 6,500 copies that this numbe 1
should stands
The Finance Committee, in forc forcing
ing forcing the issue, is doing a great disservice
to publications and Student Government
both. We told Student Body Secretary-
Treasurer Bob Shaffer after the meeting
Sunday that the Florida Alligator, the
Seminole, and members of the Board of
Student Publications were in favor of
the Seminole going ahead and printing
more copies.
And furthermore, we told Shaffer, if
the Finance Committee had gotten to together
gether together and discussed this matter with
the Seminole earlier this fall, instead of
having the Council veto a Seminole bud budget
get budget for 6,500 which had been approved
by the Board, they might have gotten
what they wanted.
Just look at what happened Sunday
night. The Finance Committee held a
meeting: 1) It was closed to the public
and the press. Such a move does not im improve
prove improve public relations. 2) Not one mem member
ber member of a student publication, the Semi Seminole,
nole, Seminole, or the Board was present. Is this
the proper way to reach a decision
which could have far-flung effects at
the University of Florida ?
We would recommend that the full
Executive Council tonight vote down
this move unanimously. It is a bad
recommendation as we have stated in an
editorial in last Fridays Alligator.
We repeat, the Alligator is in favor of
8,000 copies, because the students who
want a copy are entitled to one. Further Furthermore,
more, Furthermore, the money is available, and should
be spent since it is needed this year.

against the Council request was because

It must be remembered that for a typi typical

while the actual cost of each copy is
nearly double the amount.
We believe that if the Council tonight
votes down this order, and instead
tries to use reason and deliberation with
student publications leaders, they will
get their 8,000 copies.

More Rat Caps...
Alpha Tau Omega fraternity is to be
congratulated for taking the initiative
in reviving a tradition which is slowly
dying on the Florida campus.
ATO has given the boosters of school
spirit a shot in the arm with its require requirement
ment requirement that all freshman pledges be re required
quired required to wear the rat cap until we win
the Georgia game.
If we lose this tilt, the tradition says
that the freshman are supposed to wear
the beanies until the Christmas holidays.
Why other groups dont follow ATOs
lead is beyond us. It is probably due to
tlve cynics belief that anything of that
sort is below the dignity of the ma mature
ture mature Florida student.
We would suggest, instead, that those
in a responsible position in their various
groups consider the merits of instilling
more tradition in the freshman class.
ATO has taken the lead. We hope
more fraternities, sororities, and inde independent
pendent independent groups join soon in reviving this
school tradition. It is a worthwhile
tradition, and an enjoyable one..

Last week we passed along some fashion hints for
coeds. Today we will do the same for college men.?
The most important thing to remember, gentlemen,
is to dress with verve, with dash, with inventiveness.
Dont be imprisoned by the traditional conservatism
of mens clothing. Brighten up your appearance with
a single earring, or a cavalry saber, or a gold derby.
However, guard against gaudiness. If, for instance,
you are wearing a gold derby, do not also wear a cavalry
saber. This is too much. Wear a dagger instead, or, for
formal occasions, a bowie knife.
Let us turn now to a persistent rumor that a gar garment
ment garment called the "suit is on the verge of making a
comeback. Some of you older students may remember
this suit. It was an ensemble consisting of a jacket
and trousers, both of whichthisll kill youboth of
which were made out of the same material!
The last suit ever seen on an American campus
was in 1941and I ought to know because I was
wearing it. I was an undergraduate then, and in love

were the ruin of me. Bit by bit I sold off my belong belongings

then my clothes, until finally I was left with nothing
to wear but a suit. One night I came calling for her

the face with a riding crop and sent me from her door.
I slunk home and lit a Marlboro and sat down to

Obviously, to be the best-dressed man on campus,
you must first have a lot of clothes, and if you have a

During the past two days, I have heard people around campus
bemoaning the fate of the Florida football team, saying that the
Gators are dead.

Sure, it can be said the Orange
and Blue gridders threw away
last Saturdays game, handing
the visiting Maroons 22 points on
fumbles, intercepted passes, and
the like.
All this does not, however, mean
that we can forget about this
team, and just resign ourselves to
a losing season.
Florida, when they held on to
the ball, looked very good Satur Saturday.

Tribble then attempted a field
goal, but the kick went wide of the
mark and the Gators took over.
Before the cheering had died
