Despite incomplete dwelling units Tau Epsilon Phi and Pi

to move into new houses on the Florida campus.
The TEPs, located on Fraternity Row, are awaiting living

Their new type central heating system is one of the best, and
can be converted to an air conditioning unit during the summer,
according to President Bud Shorstein.
The Pikes new house, as well as the TEP's, need only a few
finishing touches before completion.
One of the most attractive features of the modern, utilitarian
and beautiful Pike house is the 40 by 50 feet living room, suitable
for almost any activity, including an enormous fireplace and many
square feet of floor space.
The Pikes are located on a large plot of ground just east of
the Delta Tau Delta house on West University Avenue.
Both new houses have completely equipped, modem kitchen
facilities including such features as steamtables, ice machines,
automatic dishwashers and large storerooms. The Pikes new home
includes a walk-in ice-box, suitable for storing whole sides of beef
to be used as the need arises.
The Pikes can serve up to 200 guests at a time in their appeal appealing

recreation hall constructed the full length of the building a large
patio to use for such events as barbecues and summer evening
The new Pike house cost a total of $220,000, file most expen expensive
sive expensive fraternity house in the entire Southeast, according to Presi President
dent President Ralph Lambert.
Warranted by the contractor to be completely fireproof, the
house is constructed mainly of steel and concrete. The roof is con constructed

of the newest and strongest methods of structure.
Sixty men can be housed in the well-ventilated rooms.
A wandering-stressed concrete-terras o front staircase is one
of the main features of the TEP house. Total cost is sl*o,ooo. Ca Capacity

is to provide music through the speakers mounted in the ceilings
of the ground floors. A public address system will be utilised to
make announcements and call people to the phone, eliminating the
necessity for naming up and down stairs to locate fratres.
Both the Pike and TEP houses have yet to be landscaped and
the finishing touches are expected to be completed shortly. The
Pikes are also waiting to receive the copper fine shield to be bi bitalled

Something Good, Defeated
It is a shame the plans for a Student Book Exchange failed to gain approval
of the Executive Council Tuesday night.
The Book Exchange would have been a reality for Florida students had just
one or two more Council members raised their hands to make the 2/3 vote needed
for passage of the message.
What must be especially hard to take
is that after weeks of careful planning
by the Florida Union Board, which
would have set up the project, the Coun Council
cil Council first passed the measure and then on
second and final reading vetoed the
Book Exchange for the Student Body.
A Book Exchange is nothing new to
us. Florida has made repeated attempts
at such an operation, but failure has
been met every time. Now, after studying
the mistakes of the past and comparing
figures with other universities around
the country the Union Board felt it had
drown up the best plan possible for an
institution this size.
The Book Exchange would have work worked

would be taken on a credit basis. The

arranges with his roommate for
an evening of double dating.
They dress casually, take in a

he offers her his arm. She takes
it, but she avoid touching,

into contact with his hands.
He is wondering if he made
enough of an impression to risk
a good-night-kiss try. She is
wondering how she is going to
avoid a clumsy attempt, and she
also weighs her chances for a

refuses him. She reads a lot
about the male sex drive and is

Tht Florida Alligator, Friday, Jon. 10,1958
A little less than two years ago, the National Collegiate Ath Athletic
letic Athletic Association put the University of Florida and five other schools
on two-year probation for violation of the controversial Dartmouth
Amendment to the NCAA Code.
Florida head coach and athletic
director Bob Woodruff and alumni
and friends of the Universitys in intercollegiate
tercollegiate intercollegiate sports programs had
been providing expense money for
prospective high school athletes
on their visits to the University
According to the Dart mouth
Amendment, no expense money
may be granted to a non-Univer non-University
sity non-University student.
Woodruff and his staff had be believed
lieved believed that, although the Univer University
sity University itself could not subsidize the
prospective students, alumni
would be able to give the ath athletes
letes athletes money to visit Gainesville
and look at the University.
In the Alligator of May i, 1956,
days after the probation had been
leveled on the University, Profes Professor
sor Professor Henry B. Constans, chairman
of the faculty athletic committee,
noted that Ooach Woodruff knew
that athletic association funds
could not be used for transporta transportation
tion transportation of student athletes; however,
he thought it was permissible to
have alumni and friends of the
University provide such trans transportation.
The infraction for which the
University of Florida is now be being
ing being penalized grew out of a mis misunderstanding
understanding misunderstanding of the results of
a meeting of athletic directors and
head football coaches of the South Southeastern
eastern Southeastern Conference held several
years ago Constans continued.
Probation Hit Nine
The clamping on of the proba probationary
tionary probationary status on the University
robbed the 1956 Florida baseball
team, coached by Dave Fuller, of
an opportunity to go to the NCAA
championships and bring back the
national title. At the time of the
probation, the Gator nine had al already
ready already won the SECs Eastern di division
vision division title, and was scheduled to
meet Mississippi for the confer conference

the national meet.
Incidentally, the Gators swept
through the first two games of the
two-out-of-three competition, and
earned the SEC crown. Mississip Mississippi,
pi, Mississippi, however, went to the national
meet and advanced all the way to
the semi-finals, before bowing out.
Speculation ran high at the time
as to whether Florida, which had
swamped the Rebel diamond
squad, could have gone to the
finals and captured the title,
Whether the Gators Could have'
won the championship is, today,
a moot question, because, in the
