Frats Decide A.Ist






The Inter-Fraternity Confereice will not co-sponsor
Military Ball this March with the Advanced Military Stu-
dents, it was decided recently at a joint meeting of the
IFt and Military Dept.
IFC rules -call for a two-third majority to make .an


agreement bindirg for all frater-
nities and the vbte, 12 to 9 in fa-
vor, was not a two-thirds vote.
Some Frats For Ball
The ,affirmative-voting frater-
rities, however, are in favor of
joining the ROTC students to put
through the big week-end, which
was an annual event in pre-war
years. Preliminary plans have
been made liy these fraternities
ard the POTC but it is stressed
by Vance Morgan, chairman of
the Military Ball committee, that
therq is nothing definite yet.
Lawrence Leading Choice
In these early plans the leading
choice for the band seems to be
Elliot Lawrence, a comparative
newcomer to the musical world.
Lawrence has risen fast in recent
months to play more college en-
gagements in the North than any


other band. Gere Krupa's band
has also been mentioned in the
booking plans.
Probable Date Told
If the Ball- is held it probably
will be March 21-22 in the gymna-
s um and a maximum of 1400 tic-'
kets will be sold in order to pre-
ve.-t overcrowding.

Museum Gains Popularity


Since Relocation In 1937

By Neil Evans imagination of visitors to the Lor-
ing Memorial Room.
.The growing popularity of the
Florida State Museum in the Sea- Hall of Ornithology ,

the Seagle Building in 1937.
Van Hyming Is Founder
The story of the Florida State
Museum is one that T. Van Hym-
ing, prominent curator and form-
er director of the Museum, de-
lights in telling. He founded and
fostered the growth of the mus-
eum from a tiny bird exhibit to
a half million dollar collection-
from a room twenty by thirty
feet at the University in 1914 to
the three floor portion of the Sea-
gle Building.
Now Is Retired
T. Van Hyming officially re-
tired as the Museum's director
on July 1, 1946, and was succeed-
ed by his associate, Niles Schaf-
fer, acting director. Not only did
Van Hyming foufid the Museum,
but he drafted, and through his
industrious efforts had passed by
the State Legislature a bill cre-
ating the Florida State 'Museum
as a department of the University
in 1917.
Archeology ,Dept.
The first floor in the Florida
Museum is divided into 'the gener-
al office, a department of Florida
archaeology, and a department of
water transportation in Florida.
The general preparitory, where all
specimens are cleaned and restor-
ed is located in the rear of the
first floor, and is also used for
storage space. The department of
Florida archaeology has twelve
large cases filled with mound pot-
tery with mound pottery and
stone artifacts of the early indian
tribes of Florida. The pottery col-
lection is not excelled through-
out the South.


Loring Memorial
Second floor of the Museum is
devoted to the Loring Memorial
Room and the Hall of Ornithology.

able were employed and its exhi-
bition is not excelled in any known
buse,.mrn. Fcaurteen more groups
have been started depecting the
water breeding birds of Florida.


Painting 300 Feet L-ong
In the cove above the habital
cases is an oil painting nearly 300
feet long by the noted Norwegian
artist, Nicolay Jacobs, depicting
the St. Johns River from its
source at Lake Helen Blazes, to
its mouth on the Atlantic. This
painting required years of
thought, research, and travel by
the staff of ,the Museum.
The entire third floor of the
Museum is devoted to the storage
of thousands of museum speci-
mens all catalogued and inventor-
ied. There are nearly a hundred
large storage cases overflowing
with specimens representing the
history of Florida, both natural
and civil from the earlies pre-
historic times to the most re-
cent times. This floor is usually
closed to visitors.
New Items Received
Among recent acquisitions of
the Florida State Museum are a
large shipment from England of
art and historical material of
great value-the remainder of a
very large and valuable collection
of the late Baron Hans von Nos-
zky of Melrose, Florida, willed to
the Museum.
Mr. Niles Schaffer, acting di-
rector, states that the Jqck of
space and personnel prohibits any
extensive new projects at present,
and the Museum's hopes of ex-
pansion are not being pressed in
order to allow the University to
direct all available efforts toward
relieving the conjested condition
produced by the influx of veter'-
ans.

Talmadge Tactics
(Editor's Note: The following editor.
ial, because we believe it pertinent to cur.
rent events, is reprinted from yesterday's
Gainesville Sun. It was written by Mr.
William Pepper, Editor-In-Chief of The
Sun, who at one time ."covered" Gene
Tialmadge for Associated Press while Tal-
madge was Governor of Georgia.)
The- row in Georgia over'the governor-
ship, regard-less of the outcome, is noth-
ing more than a typical example of pol-
itics in that stale since "Old Gene" Tal-
madge first appeared in the Atlanta cap-
itol from his home dow, in Sugar Creek
in the southeastern part of. the state.
The editor of this paper (The Sun)
had occasion to watch such antics in op-
eration over a period on several months
while "covering" the capitol and the leg-
islature for one of the. big wire services.
The howling legislators; the vociferous
groups of politicians weaving through the _`
capitol corroidors, pounding on doors, and
engaging in fist fights, and all of the tur.-:;..
bulent events which took place yester--
day are but echoes .of the. methods of
the red-suspendered politician who has
not been so many weeks in his grave. We
personally witnessed many of the events
which took place in the years immediate-
ly preceding the war when the elder
Talmadge removed both the state treas-
urer and the comptroller general by the
force of the military -after they declined
to relinquish the offices from which he
had -ousted them by a sweep of the ex-
ecutive pen. Then it was that Talmadge
and his forces used blow torches to.get
into the vaults of the state treasury which
had been left locked by the duly-elected
-but forcibly-ejected-treasurer. We
witnessed the fu-'ore which surrounded
the efforts of Talmadge to run the state
government against the wishes of a re-
bellious legislature which had left him
without an appropriation bill. We saw
wild waving of hands as red suspenders
were snapped from the rostrums ol the
House and Senate and heard shouts and
invectives bantered about among the
chosen representatives of the Georgia
people. We witnessed the fight of Tom
Linder, Talmadge lieutenant, to. retain
the office of commissioner of agriculture
to which Talmadge's successor had ap-
pointed another man.
During these years of turmoil, we also
saw Herman Talmadge, son of old Gene
and present claimant of the governorship,
learning lessons of turbulent politics in
the midst of these upheavals. Fresh from
the University of Georgia, where he had
won high honors and dominated student
politics, Herman Talmadge was in the
midst of all of the squabbles by the side
of his father. He began as an impressari.o
working up the fever heat which marked
his father's political speeches on the
stump. Standing in one part of the crowd,
Herman would call out such remarks as'
"Take off your coat, Gene; let's see your
suspenders." He would then work his
way quietly to another section of the
same crowd and make a similar remark.
Soon the group would take up 'the hue
and cry and there would deire.lop shout-
ing, "amen-ing," whistling, stamping of
feet and something which approached
hysteria. We understand that in last

Letters To The Editor


Says Literary

Magazine Needed

Morty Freedman, Editor
The Florida Alligator
Gainesville, Florida.
Dear Sir:
I am quite sure that the entire
student body was very well pleas-
ed with the recent issue of the
Orange Peel and are in full ac-
cord with its policy of humor for
the campus readers. Yet a large
number of men are also struck
with the thought that this cam-
pus does not have a literary mag-
azine. For a student body of this
size to have no organ to air its
more serious views, to present its
literary achievements, ard to pub-
1:sh the works of its poets and
essayists is almost unthinkable.
In the past the University of
Florida, probably owing to lim-
ited funds,-had only one magazine,
"The Florida Review" and this
tried to combine both the 'comic
and serious sides under one cover.
Obviously this is impossible, so
the campus voted to change the
name of this publication to the
"Orange Peel" and let it repre-
sert the lighter side of campus
life.
Now a need again arises to have
a revival of the literary maga-
ine. Throughout the country, at
schools l i k e Harvard, 'Yale,
Princeton, Pennsylvania and in
fact, o every other college cam-
pus such a publication exists. The
charter of the-Orange Peel states,
"The Orange Peel shall serve as
am Ai*- for the publication of
stories, essays, poems and other
suitable materials of a literary
nature and moreover, it shall
serve as an outlet for the liter-
ary work of the University of
Florida students."
However, I feel that the Orange
Peel is doing well by their policy
cf humorous stories, humorous
poems, humorous essays, etc. It
is plain to see that two magazines
are. needed, and needed badly.
Such a publication would add
possibly forty cents to the student
fees of each person attending the
University of Florida. This is a
minute amount compared to the
value aed benefit that it would
give to each aand eVery student. At
present this matter is being
brought up before the 'executive
council. If any and all students in-
terested would write to the Alli-
gator and voice their feelings, it
will be a valuable step toward
bringing this vital publication to
the University of Florida.
Sincerely,
Alan Westin

Defends Bilbo,

Talks Of Pride

Mr. Morty Freedman,
Editor, The Alligator,
Florida Union, U.,of F.
Dear Mr. Freedman:
With mounting disgust I read
Kimmelts caluminous letter, and
decided to retaliate on behalf of
the Hon. Sen. Theodore G. Bilbo.
Particularly do I detest the North-
ern intrusion in Southern politics
involved here. Yes, Kimmel, the
South is indeed approaching a cri-
sis, but not over the Bilbo issue as
you so erroneously stated. That
crisis is gathering momentum rap-
idly through the migration of car-
petbaggers to Dixie, who have
taken it on themselves to reform
the South, reminiscent of post-
Civil War days when old Tad Ste-
ven's army of reformers came,
South to "enlighten" the Rebels
-and failed so miserably.
On what grounds do you con-
demn Bilbo? For his stand -on
white supremacy? How can you
condemn a man for his beliefs?
Here indeed is Fascism in its ug-
liest reality? Bilbo was elected
by the people of Mississippi, not
by the voters of New York or
Michigan, and he represents the
average Mississippiati's racial as-
pirations perfectly. If you have
noticed, it is not the voters of Mis-
sissippi that are trying to impeach
him, but rather the busybodies of
Northern politics that are trying
to- eject.him-from his elected- of-
fice. Incidentally; the North is
not the epitome of racial tolerance
by a long shot. Your record has
been marred repeatedly by riots
and racial demonstrations. So be-
fore you come down here and in-
still the essence of tolerance, why
don't you practice what you
preach ?
Every true Southerner south of
the Mason-Dixon realizes the de-
crepit condition of the darkies in.
Dixie-but 'nearer our hearts,
Kimmel, are the multitudes of pov-
erty-stricken poor whites who
need our help so desperately.
Projects are, in their embryonic
stage for -relief to these destitute
whites, and if 20th Century eman-
caiptors line you can be kept at a
minimum, we will see a rejuvenat-
ed Southland in the not too distant
future. Then, and only then, can
we hope to better the negroes'
plight.
In your letter you made the in-
sipid statement that it would be
catastrophic for the other South-
ern senators to defend Bilbo. Here
you've encountered an eleinent
that is evidently alien to you-
Southern pride. We're about the
proudest. group of individuals in
America, Kimmel, and when any
one of our number is down, we
hasten to his aid, regardless of
-consequences involved.
So to avo'd further contamina-
tion from characters of your cali-'
bre, instead of an anti-Bilbo purge
here on the campus, I suggest we
inaugurate an anti-Kimmel drive
-for your presence is definitely
needed elsewhere!
Chester W. Taylor, Jr.,
University of Florida.
(EDITOR'S NOTE. ..,In defense
of Kimmel, it niay'irl.terest- Mr.
Taylor to know thatr.e.fAulls.of the
Florida state c-nsui- sho.'. that
over 50 percent of Florida's pop-
ulatip has migrated from other
states and that a large -portion of
this 50 percent are from North-
ern states. We believe that a man
can be condemned for his beliefs,
particularly when such beliefs run
counter to the U. S. Constitution
as do. some of Bilbo's. To say
that Bilbo should not be con-
demned for his Fascistic beliefs is
to say that Hitler should not have
been condemned for similar be-
liefs. While agreeing with Mr.
Taylor that the South's problems
should be solved" by Southerners.
we believe that actions such as
those taken by Mississippi's Bilbo '
are detrimental to '- the whole
South, and thus' of equal' concern
to Floridians. .We don't think
that all Southerners necessarily
come to the aid of a man merely
because he is a Southerner.,
Though Mr. Taylor may not agree,
our first duties are to. God and
country, our second to the South:

learning and disseminate knowl-
edge.
In another important resolution,
the press association members
jointly stated: "This organiza-
tion represents publications sup-
ported by some 22,000 college stu-
dents in the state of Florida," and
the group went on record as op-
posing those groups creating ra-
cial and religious prejudices, and
to intolerance of anything.
A committee was appointed
with power to plan a convention
of high school publications' jour-
nalists this spring for the pur-
pose of encouraging interest in.
journalism and judging the state's
publications.
IV. M. Pepper Speaks
W. M. Pepper, Jr., editor of the
Gainesville Sun, speaking on free-
dom of the press, gave "accuracy,
impartiality, good taste and free-
dom from libel as the four qual-
ifications for an acceptable news
story." The formal high-ranking
naval public relations officer urged
the delegates to maintain objec-
tivity in reporting, to throw away
all bias, and to accept and fulfill
the responsiiblity of, furthering
the interest of the schools. "A
certain amount of guidance and
counseling from the college ad-
ministration is desired, if it does
not stifle what we know as free-
dom of the press," Pepper added.
Beaty Gives Talk
R. C. Beaty, dean of students
at the University of Florida, in
welcoming the delegates to the
campus, advised them that student
publications and all the activities
theypromote, constitute one of. the
most important phases of college
life. "Student publications are
still controlled by s t u d e nt s,"
Beaty said,' "while other phases,
such as athletics, fraternities, dra-
matics, are now largely out of the
students' hands."
Patrick Guest Speaker
Speakers at a banquet Saturday
night at the Thomas Hotel includ-
ed Dr: R. W. Patrick, a historian
on the University staff and author
of two -books, and Allen W.
Skaggs, acting director of public
relations here. Dr. Patrick, in
speaking on "The Writing of a
Book," referred to one of his own,
"Florida Under Five Flags."
Morty Freedman, convention,,
chairman and editor-in-chief of the
Alligator, spoke for the host school
and introduced Miss Winifred
Lane, FSCW, president of the as-
sociation. *
Schedule Told
Registration for the convention
was held on Friday afternoon, and
the delegates were entertained
with a social evening that night,
including a banquet and an infor-
mal gathering at the ATO house.
Formal meetings, round table
discussions, committee and busi-
ness meetings are held throughout
the day Saturday. A better un-
derstanding between the schools
resulted from the active part tak-
en in discussing -methods, tech-
niques, and problems of the many
student journalists of the state.
The host for the convention was
the University of Florida's own
Press Association, headed by Pat
O'Neal, president. Rollins and
Florida Southern are also mem-
bers, but failed to send representa-
tives for the convention.,

of play-but from then on it was
fast and furious.

Talmadge Tactics (Editor's Note: The following editor. ial, because we believe it pertinent to cur rent events, is reprinted from yesterday's Gainesville Sun. It was written by Mr. William Pepper, Editor-In-Chief of The Sun, who at one time "covered" Gene Talmadge for Associated Press while Talmadge was Governor of Georgia.) The-row in Georgia over the governorship, regardless of the outcome, is nothing mor-e than a typical example of politics in that state since "Old Gene" Talmadge first appeared in the Atlanta capitol from his home dowA, in Sugar Creek in the southeastern part of the state. The editor of this paper (The Sun) had occasion to watch such antics in operation over a period on several months while "covering" the capitol and the legislature for o~le of the big wire services. The howling legislators; the vociferous groups of paliticians weaving through the capitol corridors, pounding on doors.and engaging in fist fights, and all of the tur-c bulent events which took place yester-. day are but echoes of the methods of the red-suspendered politician who has not been so many weeks in his grave. We personally witnessed many of the events which took place in the years immediately preceding the war when the elder Talnadge removed both the state treasurer and the comptroller general by theforce of the military after they declined to relinquish the offices from which he had ousted them by a sweep of the executive pen. Then it was that Talmadge and his torCes Used blow torches to get into the vaults of the state treasury which had been left locked by the duly-elected -but foncibly-ejete-tteastit'er. We witnessed the ftu'oi'e which suirTounded the efforts of Talmadge to Iin the state government against the wishes of a rebellious legisature which had lelt hin witlhoit an appropriation bill. We saw wild waving of hands as red sUspenders were snapped front the rost'rms o the House and Senate and heard shouts and invectives bantered about among the chosen representatives of the Georgia people. We witnessed the fight of Tom Linder, Talmadge lieutenant, to retain the office of commissioner of agriculture to which Talmadge's successor had appointed another man. During these years of turmoil, we also saw Herman Talmadge, son of old Gene and present claimant of the governorship, learning lessons of turbulent politics in the mirdst of these upheavals. Fresh from the University of Georgia, where he had won high honors and dominated student politics, Herman Talmadge was in the midst of all of the squabbles by the side of his fatheteIe began as an impressario working up the fever heat which marked his father's political speeches on the stump. Standing in one part of the crowd, Herman would call out such remarks as "Take off your coat, Gene; let's see your suspenders." le would then work his way quietly to another section of the same crowd and make a similar remark. Soon the group would take up the hue and cry and there would develop shouting, "amen-ing," whistling, stamping of feet and something which approached hysteria. We understand that in last 5IRMTON: BY LES GLEICHENHAUS WAS THAT A KISS OR A SUCTION PUMP DEMONSTRATION? Hump-free, they call him since lie's married Lauren, but that's another tale, so leave us leave to that mystery of all mysteries-"The Big Sleep." It was such a mystery toward the end, there were so many loose strings that the prplexed producer called in God and all had a conference-what happened is to be seen on the screen of the Florida today! It's manna from the angels. La Bacall is still the same-wants kisses of the dead bee variety. Humphrey is in like E. Flynn being mighty attractive to all the gals from 8 to 80.

That lie has not forgotten the lessons learned at his father's side, however, is shown by the scene which ensued when he went to the executive offices to demand that Gyovernor Arnall step down. By contrast with the turbulence of the Talmadge tactics, we recall the quiet and orderly methods used by Arnall. Arnall was then assistant attorney general, working in an office in an obscure part of the capitol building. He knew what was going on at all times and was one of the best-informed men among the state officials of Georgia. Yet never once did we see Arnall in the midst of any of the fights. Never once did he step into the limelight. Yet he was laying the foundation, even then, for the office which he later occupied with a dignity befitting it.

But he had been elected by the University of Florida Student Body, and he knew that he had to do his duty. t_ After typing up two separate! summons, he notified the Clerk of other way of saying he wanted t t a for the trial the privileges of self-government of our two sharp guys.

All Over The 'Place WITH ELLIOT SHIENFELDd With the advent of the new year let us sing the praises of then many new inventions that are appearing to make life more interest-t ing for us. Did you know that an automatic tooth brush has finally appeared?

'1 Maurice HinsonFeatured in Sunday Concert A special plano-organ concert featuring Maurice Hinson, brilliant young Gainesville pianist, has been announced by Claude Murphree 'fnr his regular Sunday afternoon prograin Jan. 19 at 4 p.m. in the Uni-' versity auditorium. Accompanied by Mr. Murphree at the organ, Hinson, a student at P. K. Yonge High School, will play the Saens Piano Concerto in G Minor and the complete Gershw:n Rhapsody in Blue. Organ numbers on the program include"DanserMacabre," by St. Saens, and Gershwin's "American in Paris." All students and friends are invited to attend. FlPA Continued from Page One learning and dissem:nae knowledge. ln another important resolution, the press association members jointly stated: "This organization represents publications supported by some 22,000 college students in the state of Florida," and the group went on record as opposing those groups creating racial and religious prejudices, and to intolerance of anything. A committee was appointed with power to plan a convention of high school publications' journalists this spring for the purpose of encouraging interest in journalism and judging the state's publications. W. M. Pepper Speaks W. M. Pepper, Jr., editor of the Gainesville Sun, speaking on freedom of the press, gave "accuracy, impartiality, good taste and freedom from libel as the four qualifications for an acceptable news story." The formal high-ranking naval public relations officer urged the delegates to -maintain objectivity in reporting, to throw away all bias, and to accept and fulfill the responsibility of furthering the interest of the schools. "A certain amount of guidance and counseling from the college administration is desired, if it does not stifle what we know as freedom of the press," Pepper added. Beaty Gives Talk R. C. Beaty, dean of students at the University of Florida, in welcoming the delegates to the campus, advised them that student publications and all the activities they-promote, constitute one of the most important phases of college life. "Student publications are still controlled by s t u d e nt s," Beaty said, "while other phases, such as athletics, fraternities, dramatics, are now largely out of the students' hands." Patrick Guest Speaker Speakers At a banquet Saturday night at the Thomas Hotel included Dr. R. W. Patrick, a historian on the University staff and author of two -books, and Allen W. Skaggs, acting drector of public relations here. Dr. Patrick, in speaking on "The Writing of a Book," referred to one of his own, "Florida Under Five Flags." Morty Freedman, convention, chairman and editor-in-chief of the Alligator, spoke for the host school and introduced Miss Winifred Lane, FSCW, president of the association. -, Schedule Told Registration for the convention was held on Friday afternoon, and the delegates were entertained with a social evening that night, including a banquet and an informal gathering at the ATO house. Formal meetings, round table discussions, committee And business meetings are held throughout the day Saturday. A better understanding between the schools resulted from the active part taken in discussing methods, techniques, and problems of the many student journalists of the state. The host for the convention was the University of Florida's own Press Association, headed by Pat O'Neal, president. Rollins and Florida Southern are also members, but failed to send representatives for the convention. Student Elected To Legislature ( ACP)-College students are coming into politics these days. Robert Bock, a University of Kansas student, vas chosen in the November election as a member of the Kansas House of Representatives. The 21-year-old sophomore will be the youngest member Af the legislature.

rosat uncier cscussion :. Loes the proposal meet the test of practicability and the needs for which its proponents advocate it be set He maintained that our present economic system is not so full of decay that we must rush headlong into some new system. "We are still the greatest industrial power in the world, and the status quo is not so uncomfortable," he said, adding that it is "only natural that we are going to have conflict between management and labor." As to the test of pracxicability, Murray contended that when put to the test the following faults became evident in the proposal: 1. It would result in confusion in business practices. 2. It would take away the prerogative of control from owners. 3. It would not put equal responsibility on labor. 4. It provides another battleground for squabbles. "I do not see a need to junk our status quo, which has brought us to the peak we have reached today," Murray concluded. Both of the speakers uere given a few minutes for rebuttals. The girls momentarily took a slim lead over the boys in the University of Florida Trailervet Baby Derby, H. C.

Studying the needs of the state through particIpation in prize contests sponsored by outstanding members of the Florida bar, the students of the Law College submit research papers on such topics as the Reform of the Florida Judiciary, the Adoption in Florida of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and the Need for a New Florida Constitution. The various law courses are like the wheels of a watch, one course functioning with another. A student hardly can understand one course without some knowledge of related course, and the various courses must be taught to give a knowledge of the law as a whole. This knowledge of law is valuable in personal business, in the business of the community, and in the art of statesmanship. Distinguished Grads The place of gractuates of the College of Law in the state and na.tion is well illustrated by the record of such men as Sen. Spessard L. Hollard, Justices H. L. Sebring, Alto Adams and Paul D. Barns of the Supreme Court of Florida, Congressmen J. Hardin Peterson and George A. Smathers, all of whom received their law training at the University of Florida. Graduates of the College of Law const tute a large portion of the Florida bar, and their leadership is manifested .throughout the professional, political, civic and economic activities of Florida. A member of the Associatlon of American Law Schools, the College of Law is on the approved list of the American Bar Association and is accredited by the New York Board of Regents. Helping to maintain the college's high standing among other law schools throughout the nation is the authorsh'p by members of its faculty of standard works on the departhiert of la contributions to -Corpus Juris, co-at.-r:ors:.:p of the Yearbooks of School Law, and numerous articles in legal and other periodicals.
