JOHN J. TIGERT
President of the University
The University opens its doors
this summer on what bids fair to
be the greatest opportunity a
University Summer Session has
ever been privileged to offer. The
curricular offerings are more nu-
merous, and we think better, than
ever. For the most part the whole
regular session faculty are on
hand. Moreover, a large group
of new instructors who come from
every section of the country and
who bring rich experience to share
with our students has been added.
Yet :ich curricuiTr offerings.
adequate staff, aid a large stu-
dent body are meaningless with-
out the spirit of intellectuall cu-
r'osity and the resolve to do mean-
ineful work on the part of stu-
dents and faculty alike. It is my
sincere wish that these high mo-
ti-es may dominate the temper of
this Summer Session. Those stu-
n:.s entering the University for
the first t'me will need to set for
themselves a high standard of ex-
cellence now. Those who are re-
turning to the University after in-
terrupted study should bring their
maturity and experience to bear
on this most important of all ad-
SI hereby extend to all students.
new and old alike, a hearty wel-
come. To the new members of the
staff in particular, I wish to give
assurance that we are happy to
have them and trust that the sig-
n'ficant part thev may have in
the education of the teachers and
youth of Florida may be pleasant
and prof table in every way.

The Seminole is usually distri-

several factors have caused a, nec-

other materials, made it difficult
to ccnform to the regular schedule.
Work on the Seminole usually
begins in May, and the annual is
completed by the following May.
On the '46 Seminole, however,
Sage. pointed: cut. that, work did
not begin until the middle of
October. 1945, so publication by
September 1946, does not repre-
sent any serious loss of time.
An important meeting of the
staff of the '46 Seminole will be
held Monday night, June 17, at
7:00 in the Seminole office. All
staff members are requested to

Gator Is Experiment
With the first edition of the Summer
Gator, we bring- you an experiment in
tabloid size newspaper .... last year's
Gator having been the regular edition.
The Gator will appear once a week
and will be for Wednesday morning pub-
lication. Copy must be submitted by 9 a.
m. Tuesday. It must be typewritten and
double-spaced and left at the Alligator
box at Florida Union desk.
All letters to the editor will be pub-
We are interested in finding out the
reaction of the student body to the tabloid
size and the Gator will always be open to
suggestions the students may have con-
cerning the publication. It is your paper,
we want your opinion.
Two Good Candidates
Two good men are up for the office of Summer
Session Student Body President. Both have good
records on the campus.
Pete Hartsaw :s an outstanding campus athlete.
He is a member of Alpha Tau Omega, social frat-
ernity, and is the newly-elected Vice-President of
the Athletic Council. He has excelled in track
and was voted captain of the varsity basketball
team. He was recently elected to the University's
Hall of Fame, a high honor.
Fred Turner is a veteran of long overseas ser-
vice. He is married and is an independent living
in Murphree dorm. It was Turner who organized
the Murphree married couples when they were
threatened with eviction from the dorms. He
also fouled and was elected chairman of the
Student Committee on Housing.
Turner with several other members of the com-
mittee, demanded and received an audience with
Governor Caldwell and the cabinet to put forth
their demands for student housing here.
Not satisfied with the section he received in
Tallahassee, Turner, accompanied by University
Asst. Business Manager George Baughman and
State Improvement Director Overman went to
Atlanta and spoke ot heads of the Federal Public
Housing Authority. Two weeks later the Uni-
versity was allotted 524 additional housing units.
Who is the best manr is something that the
students must decide for themselves.. .but all stu-
dents should have enough' interest in student
government to at least vote.
Ku Klux Klan Active
An Associated Press story riled from Atlanta
last week told of the stabbing to death of an At-
lanta man and quoted Georgia authorities as lay-
iig the blame squarely in the laps of the anti-
"quted Ku Klux Klan.
Radio commentator Drew Pearson received
many Klan threats against his life following a
recent article describing government action to-
wards eradicating the infamous hooded horde.
All of-which makes most thinking Southerners
grateful to Governor: Ellis Arnall for at least
instructing Georgia's Attorney-General to find
legal ways of revoking the Klan charter and let-
ting the bed-sheet beclad ninnies sink to the
oblivion which they so richly deserve.
Asst. Attorney General of Georgia, Dan Duke
said recently that his undercover agents who in-
filtrated the Klan reported that members of an
inner "strong arm" group openly boasted of the
killing reported in the Associated Press story and
also of a flogging which took place at the door
of Klan headquarters in Atlanta.
Such an organization is a smirch on Southern
prestige in other sections of the nation in addi-
tion to being un-American in their program of
spreading hate and intolerance. Not to be dis-
counted is the fact if they remain active they may
be the cause of a drastic shortage of sheets in this
May their end be soon forthcoming!
What About Honor Code?
It usually gripes the hell out of a person to
hear someone say, "Now back in the old days
." and then launch into a tirade on how things
used to be. Well gripes or no, gripes, here goes
Back in the old days before the war when a
man was reported to the Honor Court as a
cheater the news of such an affair had all the
elements of surprise which accompanied the drop-
ping of the atomic bomb. Cheating was some-
thing that just wasn't done at Florida.
Back in the old days men were intelligent
enough to have a high regard for honor and prac-
tical enough to know that reporting a cheater
wasn't a matter of "squealing" since the cheater
was lowering the percentile score of the class-
mates when he raised his own by cheating.
Back in the old days five Honor Court cases
involving cheating constituted a busy school year
for the Honor Court. This past semester some
20 Florida men were brought before the Court
during the final exam period alone.
Getting up to date once more, we find that
there is but one valid conclusion to be drawn from
the present situation and that is the Honor
System at Florida is on the rocks. It's up to
the students from here on out...if cheating con-
tinues it won't be long until the administration
takes over and strictly proctors all examinations
What about it men ?

With summer school elections scheduled next'
Tuesday, campus politics began to perclate almost
as soon as the school doors were swung open for
.the summer session. In reality groundwork for
the forthcoming elections was laid when campus
politicies left last May.
Once again those two arch antagonists the
Dixie Party and the Gator Party, face each
other in ballot box a battle to capture adminis-
tiation of student government. Both parties
seem to be pretty evenly matched as evidenced
by last May's general election when balloting
Swas close for almost every office.
.At this time Dixie took the coveted top three
executive posts and Gator captured the top judi-
'ial posts, majorities in the executive council
and the Honor Court, and swept the publications
Opening shot in the campaign was announce-
ment of top candidates from .both parties in the
current Alligator. Undoubtedly, the drive to
win the vote of independents, which generally
hold the balance of political power, will move in-
to high gear within the next few days.
A non-partisan rally at which both parties'
candidates will be introduced is scheduled Mon-
day at 7 p.m. in the University Auditorium. Stu-
dents should turn out for this to order to gather
some sort of intelligent information concerning
Slates from both parties for the top five stu-
dent government posts, president, vice-president,
end secretary-treasurer of the student body and
chancellor and. clerk of the Honor Court, are
Opposing candidates for the office of presi-
dent are Pete Hartsaw, Dixie. and Fred Turner,
Gator. Hartsaw, one of the top athletes on the
campus polled one of the largest majorities in
last May's election when he was elected to serve
as vice-president of the Athletic Council next
fall. He- starred on the Gator basketball team
as evidenced by the fact that he captured sec-
cond position in the high scorers for the SEC.
He was elected captain at the season's com-
pletion. Turner, you may remember is the one-
man dynamo who organized and led the Stu-
dent's Housing Committee which struck out on
its own in an effort to get additional housing
facilities on the campus for veterans...an effort
which culminated in 600 housing units. In the
course of his endeavors he paid a visit to the
Governor and cabinet.
The most rabid interest usually centers in the
presidential race, but the others promise plenty
of excitement as "Big Bill" Byrd (G) and Ken
Musgrave (D) vice-presidential candidates, Bill
O'Neal (D) adn Frank Stanley (G), secretary-
treasurer, John Crews (G) and Jack "Sambo"
Hayward, (D) Chancellor, and Dick Broome (G)
and Dave Bulloch (D) line up in the annual Dixie-
Gator slugfest. Go to it men.
For many years Florida's traditions have been
cherished and put to use.
Along with the Honor System, the "hello" has
been one of the greatest of all campus traditions.
You don't have to know a man personally to
justify greeting him with a nod of the head and
an acknowledgement of his presence. The long-
established but recently -neglected tradition of
saying "hello" or "hi' should be reestablished
firmly on the campus by the new Freshmen.
We believe it is good for morale, good for the
soul and certainly good for impressing visitor's
with the number of friends which you've made
en the campus. Let's have more of it.
Party Publicity Men Begin
Battle For Student Ballots
By Jack Doherty
Gator Publicity Director
The beg inning of the summer
session here at the University
again brings into the limelight
campus politics. With the student
body elections scheduled for this
Tuesday, The Gator and Dixie
parties are again found feverishly
preparing for battle.
One of the most significant
trends evident iii the nomina-
tions which have been made
thus far by the Dixie group, is
the fact that the Dixie party
has abandoned its pretense of
being the non-frat party. Four
out of the five men selected
by them for tlhe top govern-
ment posts are fraternity men.
On the Gator ticket four of
the top five are non-frat men.
This would seem to be plain ev-
'dence of the Dixie party's policy.
"Deals" are the order of the day.
The non-frat men get a lion's
share of offices in the big spring
election. Then, to pacify the
Dixie frats, up comes a fraternity
slate in the summer elections.
The Gator party has very wisely
given its top posts to the best-
qualified men,on the-campus-men
.active in veterans' affairs, IFC
circles, men who have actively
fought for housing for Florida's
veterans. W. Fred Turner, Gator
nominee for president, stands
"head and shoulders" above all
other candidates in the field.
Turner was instrumental in
a recent student move which
secured more housing units
for the University. As chiir-
man of the Students Housing
Committee, he championed
the cause of the Florida vet in
a recent meeting with Gover-
nor Caldwell and his cabinet.
The Governor spoke very
highly of Turner's capabili-
The Gator nominee for vice
president, Bill Byrd, has been ex-
tremely active in IFC circles. It
was Byrd who gave much time
and effort at the recent Spring
Frolics in order to secure addi-
tional tickets for non-frat men
and their dates. Byrd is a com-
petent man and is well liked by
all who know him.
Frank Stanley, Gator -nominee
lfor secretary-treasurer, is a mar-
ried veteran and a prominent
member of the Student Housing
Committee. Stanley, one of the
best- known and most- capable
men on the campus, is an ex-
tremely w'se choice.
For chancellor of the hon-
or court, the Gators again hit
the jackpot. John Crews, a
member of the U. of F. cham-
pionship debate squad, has
been selected for that most
responsible post. This choice
was made after careful con-
sideration of a host of quali-
Dick Broome, whose smiling
face is familiar to everyone who
enters the office of the Director
of Residence, has been nominated
for clerk of the court. Dick was
elected to the membership of the
court by an overwhelming major-
ity in the last elections and is well
qualified for this post.
That is a glimpse -of the type of
men the Gator party has chosen
ito represent it in the elections
Tuesday. The Dixie party may try
to cloud the air with false issues,
but that will not alter the fact
that when you see a man's name
on the Gator sample ballot you
may be sure he represents you.
Continued From Page One
up among the candidates is three
fraternity men and two independ-
en on the Dixie ticket and one fra-
ternity man and four independents
on the Gator ticket.

Gator Party: Delta Tau Delta,

Dixie Publicity Director
After considering the names of
several of the most prominent and
active student body leaders for
nomination to the top five posts
of student government, the Dixie
Party chose a group of outstand-
ing men to head the student or-
ganization this summer.
S"Pete" Hartsaw, familiar to
sports fans and University boost-
ers all over the South, is a senior
in the College of Business Admin-
istration seeking election to the
presidency of the student body.
He has held membership on the
Athletic Board of the University
for two years, and will take office
as vice-president of that group
in September. The rare honor of
tIeing chosen to the Hall of Fame
was conferred on him in May, aft-
er his prominence in University
life had gained much favorable
publicity for University athletics.
"Pete" is a favorite among
many students who admire his
abstinence from the regular
rough-and-tumble of University
politics. His platform is limit-
ed by the short summer sessions
and limited powers, but three
years in student affairs place
him in the position of easily
most qualified man for the pres-
idency in the Tuesday election.
Other Dixie candidates are well
known to students who were here
last semester. Ken Musgrave has
been active in inter-fraternity af-
fairs and in the projects that pro-
vide the welcome social weekends'
for University students. He seeks
Jack "Sambo" Hayward, re-
cent candidate for the Legisla-
ture from Pasco County, holds
up a brilliant legal mind and
years of experience in student
government in two universities
as the best possible qualifica-
tion for Chancellor of the Hon-
or Court. "Sambo" has been
champion of the underdog in
many a legal tussle. :.
For secretary-treasurer Dixie
offers Bill O'Neal, recent victor
in an Executive Council election
and watchdog of non-fraternity in-
terests. And finally, Dave Bul-
lock, another representative of
non-frat interests, is up for Clerk.
This is a "solid"' slate. It takes
in everyone, vet and non-vet, frat
and non-frat. law and business s and
athletics and recreation. In the
spring elections the student body
chose three of Dixie's top five
candidates. Then Dixie men re-
tired from the political field un-
til the summer elections were in
However, the Gator Party
chooses to call this lack of or-
ganization on our part. Thus
they logically cla'm "organiza-
tion" themselves. Since this
"organization" bragged to me
personally that it had decided on
at least some of its -candidates
last spring for this summer, be-
fore a slate that would repre-
sent all of the summer school
could possibly be worked out,
could not this "organization" be
interpreted rather as "ma-

Mr. "Billy" Matthews, chairman
of the committee on lectures for
the summer .session announced
that the first lecture of the series,
last night was a great success. The
lecturer was Dr. Clifford Lyons
who chose as his subject, "Is It
Worth It?" Mr. Matthews and
his committee, Dr. Alton Morris
and Professor Angus Laird, are
planning to present noted lectur-
ers during this summer period.
These lectures will be given every
two weeks. The exact time and
lecturers will ,be be announced lat-
calf, Gator Party chairman, and
Billy Lewis, Dixie Party head.
Campaign Publicity Directors
are Jack Dougherty, Gator and
Ted Nelson, Dixie.
Candidates will be introduced
to the Student Body at a giant
non-partisan rally to be held in
the University Auditorium Mon-
day- night at 7:30 p.m. Billy
Mathews, director of the Florida
Union, will be master of cere-
monies and has promised mu-
sic for the occasion. All stu-
dents are urged to attend.
An All-Campus Summer League,
the first comprehensive intramu-
ral and recreational sports-pro-
gram scheduled for summer ses-
sion in the history of the Univer-
sity, was announced yesterday by

In view of the fact that the in-
tramural season has not as yet
gotten under way I would like to
take this opportunity to try to
explain the importance and extent
of the intramural program at the
University of Florida, to the in-
In the not-too-distant past the
Board of Control created a Col-
lege of Physical Education at the
University of Florida. An inte-
gral part of this college is the
Department of Intramurals and
Recreation, headed by Coach
This is the department
which sponsors the intramu-
ral program here. The ac-
tual running of this depart-
ment is intrusted to a student
director and his staff of stu-
dent assistants who are ap-
pointed by the department
While a great deal more im-
portance has been attached to the
varsity teams, particularly in the
line of football, the backbone of
student recreation and participa-
tion in competitive sports lies in
the intramural program.
The main reason this is true, is
that the maximum number of stu-
dents that can be reached by var-
sity teams is relatively small while
the intramural program is de-
signed to reach every organization
and individual on the Florida
I would not attempt or de-
sire to minimize the impor-
tance of the varsity sports
program. The school spirit
derived from a winning team
- is sufficient to override any
objection to its continuance
The plans for the coming year
have been laid to provide one of
the most complete and well-
equipped intramural programs in
Florida history. The only thing
that is asked of the students is
their wholehearted participation
in this program. Let's get behind
our athletic department and join
