UF medical specialists agree: there is no longer any

than non-smokers. Statistics prove that if you smoke two

Yet lung cancer is a preventable disease, says lung specialist
Harvey Fleet, medical advisor to the Alachua County Tuberculosis
and Health Association. Either dont smoke at all, or switch to pipe.;

Besides, pipe tobacco is cheaper. Improve your health and save
your money, suggests one UF chest specialist!
IT HAS been estimated by the American Cancer Society that 05
per cent of all lung cancer could be eliminated if there were no
cigarette smoking and that millions of todays childrens smokers
will eventually become lung cancer victims. Statistics show that al almost

Men are getting lung cancer earlier than ever before, said Dr.
Fleet; not or 60 years of age but in their 40.s and even late

the UF hospital were heavy smokers.
BITT LUNG cancer is not the only health risk brought about by
smoking. Chronic bronchitis, emphysemia (stiff lungs), heart attacks,
strokes, circulatory diseases and ulcers are related to smoking. A
man with an ulcer who continues to smoke has very little chance of
cure due to acid secreted in the stomach.
ARE FILTERTIP cigarettes less hazardous? Not so, according to
Dr. Fleet.
Filter cigarettes are practically a farce. You are still smoking
tobacco. A filter cigarette is longer and about an equal amount of
tobacco is inhaled, he said.
The amount that it helps has been tremendously overrated.
DR. FLEET does not see smoking as a moral issue except in the
sense that doctors have a moral obligation to see that people get
the facts about it. Most people do not realize the facts are so over overwhelming.

THE FOLLOWING editorial is reprinted in toto from
FSUs student newspaper, The Florida Flambeau. Because
of the difficulty in scheduling a full trimester between
Labor Day and Christmas, FSU students were deprived of!
one day of their Thanksgiving vacation. This prompted
professors to threaten the double-cut penalty to prevent
students from leaving for the vacation a day early. This
action in turn prompted the following editorial comment.
. UF students were spared the inconvenience of having
their vacation shortened by laudible foresight on the part
of the Administration. Classes were begun a day early in
order to allow UF students the full vacation period. Never Nevertheless,
theless, Nevertheless, UF students can sympathize with FSU students
complaints about the facultys use of the double-cut pen penalty,
alty, penalty, since this is a favorite device of many UF professors
to prevent campus from turning into a ghost town the
day before a vacation.
How many students plan to sacrifice their only Fall
trimester vacation, Thanksgiving, in order to attend one
or two classes on the Friday following the holiday? Prob-
ably not many.
Students, having a set of values which sometimes dif differs
fers differs with that of the faculty, were generally willing to take
the cut and. go home to their families just once before
final examinations. At least, they were willing to buy
the holiday with a cut until several professors announced
their intention to horse-collar the weekend.
THE HORSE-COLLAR which was banned by the Uni University
versity University administration several years ago, is a technique
used by faculty members to keep students from leaving
campus early for vacations. A cut in the last class meet meeting
ing meeting before the holiday is recorded as two or even three
cuts, thereby weighing that session so heavily a3 to keep
students .on campus.
Actually, there seems to be no real University regula regulation
tion regulation determining what number constitutes excessive
cuts. Neither the Pow Wow nor the Faculty Hand Handbook
book Handbook lists any such figure, but many instructors still
refer to the three-cut limit and base their grading
practices on it. In this case, the horse-collar can be ex extremely
tremely extremely important in terms of the students final grade
for the course.
IF THE THANKSGIVING horse-collar were an an announced
nounced announced University policy, student leaders could lobby
deans and try to seek a solution for the problem.
IF A DEPARTMENT intends to inforce attendance on
the day after Thanksgiving, the policy should be clearly
stated. What effect would a double cut have on a stu students
dents students grade? Will such a policy be in general effect
throughout the department or will individual instructors
be privileged to make their own rules?
If the latter is true, the departments could at least
request that students be informed. A long weekend at
home has a definite value in the eyes of college students,
and they should be told exactly what the price is before
they are called upon to risk quality points.
THIS RED TAPE could be avoided if one of two al alternatives
ternatives alternatives were followed. First, classes for the day could
simply be cancelled. If trimester condensation prohibits
this, one day of Saturday classes held at some
other time during the term. Students would be willing to
swap one Saturday for a four-day holiday, especially when
that holiday is the only one ih the trimester.

We succeeded in holding that Auburn bunch down to the
.last ditch and they had to fight to cross that one. And
that on their own ground, too.
But fellows, tho those boys are happy over the record
whjch they set up in their first game, they are a great
deal more happy over the warm welcome they received
on their return. A happy smile was on the face of every
one of them when they saw the crowd that was on hand
to welcome them.
They know that you believe in them, they understand
that, lose or win, you will always stand up for them so
long as they go into the game and give their best efforts
to their school.
* By one who. knows, it has been said that every man
was in that Auburn contest from the start until the whistle
blew. Lets keep up the good work. That good old Gator
fighting spirit will pull many a game out of the fire, and
we know that there is nothing which will give to our fel fellows
lows fellows greater encouragement or lend them greater strength
than a. rousing cheer for old Florida. Lets give them
one at every opportunity.
Times do not change very much do they? The follow following
ing following editorial commented:
If the ladies of the town who so kindly donated the
blankets to the team had seen thte sensation which they
stirred in the camp of the enemy, they feel amply repaid
for their efforts to keep the Gators warm.
In the fair city of Auburn, rats and old men, lined
both sides of the street several deep as the gridiron war*
riors from Florida went by, and many were the remarks
of admiration which these beautiful, as well as useful, cov coverings
erings coverings called forth.
Especially did the Alligators in each corner attract
notice and more than one fair Auburn damsel looked at the
real Gator which these blankets were covering as though
she would like to make friends. The team can not bestow
enough thanks on the kind donors of these gifts.
MEANWHILE IN 1916 (Nov. 21)
The Gators have just completed the remarkable per performance
formance performance of going thru a very successful football season
without winning a single game, without scoring, all told,
more than three points during the season. Our opponents
scored 95 points as against three points made by us, and
still we are glad we had the schedule. We won a great
deal more than we lost.
Florida for the first time in her history played a
schedule composed entirely of teams of the first rank...
We have heard many complaints from alumni and friends
*of the University because we were not winning games.
The persons making the criticism do not realize that we
-have been playing schools many times as old as we are
and with the student bodies several times as large as ours.
Here is the comparison :
Florida, Established 1905, Enrollment 486;. Georgia
(1785) 941; Alabama (1820) 745; Tennessee, (1794) 1010;
Indiana (1820) 2644.
