Cooperation Lauded
B(: Ervin, spokesman for the
Cavaliers, congratulated the IFC
on its cooperation towards mak-
ing this week-end a successful one
for the entire student body.
"They have gone more than
half-way and should be commend-
ed and their efforts highly appre-
clated," he said.
The non-fraternity student also
uaitlhned certain points in order to
clarify the week-end's difficulties
r.nd give the student body a look
into the gigantic problem faced
-y the IFC.
Difficulties Told
(1) The campus gymnasium has
facilities for 1200 couples each

Florida party, in its platform pub-

plan and John Crews, Secretary
of Veteran Affairs and presiden-
tial candidates of the Florida and
Dixie parties, broached a similar
plan before a meeting of the In-
ter-Fraternity Conf-.rcnce steer-
ing committee rest week.
Bill Byrd. secretary of social
affairs and chairman of the Gator
party, spoke in favor of the plan
at a meeting of the IFC Tuesday
night and following other discus-
sion of the proposed amendment,
the IFC endorsed O'Neil's plan.
O'Neil himself is a member of the
Dixie Party.
Two-Thirds Vote Needed
Next step will be for O'Neil to
present his proposal to the Execu-
tive Council which must accept it
by a two-thirds vote before it
can be voted on by the student
body. In the student body vot-
ing. two-thirds must favor the
amendment to make it valid.

On The Co-education Issue
(Reprinted fror.; The Gainesville Sun)
Results of the Associa';.:-d Press poll on the question of
-co-education at both the University of. Florida and the
Florida State College for Women indicate that word of
the true motive of this scheme to split the University has
not yet reached all of our legislators.
Although only a minority of the Legislature replied to
the poll, those who did so favored the move two to one.
Co-education for the University of Florida, which was
originally proposed by the Florida State, Junior .Chamber
of Commerce, is all right, for it would do no harm to any
institution. It would merely mean that the University.
here would admit women and would leave the Florida
State College for women intact to grow and prosper as a
woman's college.
But co-education at BOTH institutions is entirely a dif-
ferent matter. It would mean that FSCW would no longer
be a first-rate women's college, but a second-rate univer-
sity which would have to be built up over the years by
taking away units of the University of Florida.
What some of the legislators probably do not realize
is that a survey of the American Association of University
Women throughout the country shows that approximately
50 percent of women students prefer to attend an institu-
tion strictly for women while the other 50 percent want to
go to a co-educational institution. If we make FSCW
co-educational half of the young women who go to college
in Florida will be denied the type of institution which they
prefer to attend. There would be no women's college in
Florida for them. What, we may ask, would be the in-
centive for a girl in South Florida to attend the University
of Florida at Tallahassee, which would be the name by.
which the new institutions would be known ? Isn't it log-
ical to say that most Florida women would want to go to
the University of Florida here because it is more centrally
located ?
At the same time that fhe institution at Tallahassee
was being relegated to the second-rate class, the Univer-
sity of Florida would be so badly split between two cam-
puses that the goal of making it one of the great institu-
tions of the nation (just being attained) would become a
will-o'-the-wisp.
If and when the legislators investigate the cost of main-
taining two-state universities at this time, we believe the
answer can be only one thing: Keep the University to-
gether as a compact and economical unit until such time
as the growth of the population demands the creation of
an additional university in South Florida.
Let each legislator bear in mind that a vote for "co-
education at both institutions" would mean a return to the
evils of scattered universities which the Buchman Act in
1905,corrected by consolidating them into the University
here. and the Women's College in Tallahassee.


Reasons For Supporting Drive

This week the Red Cross drive on campus begins.
While some.vets have gripes against the Red Cross as
a result of war-time contact, these gripes, founded or un-
founded as they may be, should not blind these students
to the services which the Red Cross renders to us in peace-
time.
Many veteran students know from first-hand experi-
ence that the Red Cross has been instrumental in speeding
up the delivery of VA subsistence checks. In addition to
this service the Red Cross has made innumerable loans to
students who have not received their subsistence checks
and are without funds.
And then again there is always this in favor of the
work done by the American Red Cross-its's humanita-
rian.

Joint Recital

Well Received

By Students
By Gerald Clarke
Alligator Music Editor
Margaret Speaks and Conrad
Thibault in joint recital excited
their University Auditorium au-
dience to enthusiasm Wednesday
ev.ening. In a generous program
the two artists pleased almost ev-
eryone. Those interested primar-
ily in more serious music were
satisfied with the rather well
sung section of the program de-
voted to Mozart and Handel..
Rombere Numbers
Everyone enjoyed the well done
rtomberg numbers and the large
selection of novelty numbers.
These letter were amazing for the
fact that they were novel and
that they did make music. The
more than capacity audience ask-
ed for and received many encores.
"Good Tone"
Mr. Thibault sang Debussy's
"Beau Soir" with good tone and
'feeling. Miss Speaks was out-
standing in the Handel song, "L'-
Enamouree." She held the audi-
ence enchanted with her- perfor-'
maimce- of "The Lemon Colored
Dodo," and Mr. Thibault succeed
equally well with his presentation
of "Amelia Mixed the Mustard."

Gray Monday night speaking be-

"I am opposed to the proposed

"The bill, if passed, would not

Emphasizing that Communism

not the race question, but rather

Questions Recent Hospitality
Dear Mr. Freedman,
Perhaps the student body should be grateful for small favors anm
thank all twenty-one fraternities for letting us hear the Tallahasseo
Glee Club last week, but I left the auditorium feeling cheated.
On an appearance five years ago, the unscheduled encores were
the highlights .of the evening. I remember their rendition of Siboneyv
as being particularly beautiful. Tonight, the group, or leader, seem
ed immune to applause from the audience. Did they sing all the song
they knew, or would additional numbers delay the big dance?
The Lyceum Council is supported by our fees. Why didn't they alone
sponsor the program? And why was the reception not held at the:
Florida Union where there is ample room, and all would feel welcome ?

Unless the object of the whole affair was to give the fra,t boys 2.
thrill, I think it was handled very poorly.
Sincerely,
(EDIT'TOR'S NOTE: According to information at our disposal, '
would have been impossible for the Tally Glee Club to sing here-if thli,
Phi Gamis had not given up their house for the night and moved ie.n
masse to thel Air Base. As to why the reception was not held in the
Union-you've got us there.)

Oops-Wrong Man Pledged

know that the Carl Durrance, who pledged a fraternity last week iI

Billiard Expert At Work


Eager eyes of Gator billiard enthusiasts watch closely as Jimmy
Caras, twice world champion at pocket billiards, gets his cue and
prepares to demonstrate another trick shot. Caras, of Wilmington,
Del,, appeared here last Monday and Tuesday night under the
auspices of the Florida Union.


Jimmy Caras,
Billiard Champ,

Puts On Show
By Hugh Cobb
Jimmy Caras, twice world's
pocket billiard champion, enter-
tained hundreds of University of
Florida students Monday and
Tuesday with his billiard exhibi-
tion in the Florida Union game
room.
Sponsored by Union
The famous Mr. Caras, who is
appearing before American col-
leges under the auspices of the
Billiard Association of America
and the National Association of
College Unions, was brought here
for student entertainment by the
Florida Union.
Gives "Cue Tips"
His appearance* here demon-
strated the type of cue play that
carried him to his championship
crowns. In addition, his enthu-
siastic audiences discovered that
Jimmy is a likeable chap, more
than willing to help with tips to
better pocket billiard perform-
ance.

Florida and the Florida State College for Women indicate that word of the true motive of this scheme to split the University has not yet reached all of our legislators, Although only a minority of the Legislature replied to the poll, those who did so favored the move two to one. Co-education for the University of Florida, which was originally proposed by the Florida State Junior Chamber of Commerce, is all right, for it would do no harm to any institution. It would merely mean that the University here would admit women and would leave the Florida State College for women intact to grow and prosper as a woman's college. But co-education at BOTH institutions is entirely a different matter. It would mean that FSCW would no longer be a first-rate women's college, but a second-rate university which would have to be built up over the years by taking away units of the University of Florida. What some of the legislators probably do not realize is that a survey of the American Association of University Women throughout the country shows that approximately 50 percent of women students prefer to attend an institution strictly for women while the other 50 percent want to go to a co-educational institution. If we make FSCW co-educational half of the young women who go to college in Florida will be denied the type of institution which they prefer to attend. There would be no women's college in Florida for them. What, we may ask, would be the incentive for a girl in South Florida to attend the University of Florida at Tallahassee, which would be the name by which the new institutions would be known? Isn't it logical to say that most Florida women would want to go to the University of Florida here because it is more centrally located ? At the same time that the institution at Tallahassee w-as being relegated to the second-rate class, the University of Florida would be so badly split between two campuses that the goal of making it one of the great institutions of the nation (just being attained) would become a will-o'-the-wisp. If and when the legislators investigate the cost of maintaining two state universities at this time, we believe the answer can be only one thing: Keep the University together as a compact and economical unit until such time as the growth of the population demands the creation of an additional university in South Florida. Let each legislator bear in mind that a vote for "coeducation at both institutions" would mean a return to the evils of scattered universities which the Buchman Act in -1905,corrected by consolidating them into the University here and the Women's College in Tallahassee. Reasons For Supporting Drive This week the Red Cross drive oil campus begins. While some vets have gripes against the Red Cross as a result of war-time contact, these gripes, founded or unfounded as they may be, should not blind these students to the services which the Red Cross renders to us in peacetime. Many veteran students know from first-hand experience that the Red Cross has been instrumental in speeding up the delivery of VA subsistence checks. In addition to this service the Red Cross has made innumerable loans to students who have not received their subsistence checks and are without funds. And then again there is always this in favor of the work done by the American Red Cross-its's humanitarian. ..V E .T. s -AR A ....... xt Social Tangle Unwinds Several individuals and several organizations are due praise this week for actions which will-alleviatejthe lack of entertainment available on campus for unorganized groups. The Cavaliers, a social organization composed. predominantly of independents, are to be congratulated for taking it upon themselves to sponsor a dance at the Air Base gymwith music piped in from the big dance at the gym on campus. Also due for a share in the praise is,-the InterFraternity Conference, which in Its eagerness to make the dance open to men who are not in fraternities will pay the bill for the Air Base function. The 1FC by this action has shown its sincerity in attempting to aid in the solving of a situation which, because of lack of campus facilities, would have shut out many men from a social week-end. It must be understood that the IFC is a private organization which supports itself on funds collected from its member fraternities, and that endorsement of the Cavalier plan by the IFC is entirely a sacrifice on the part of the IFC. Also due for no small amount of praise is Bill O'Neil, Executive Councilman, who this week introduced a proposed amendment which would guarantee campus-wide social functions in the future by the maxim of a student fee for this purpose. Organizations supporting O'Neal's plan are the IFC, the Dixie Party, through O'Neal; the Florida Party, which originally proposed such a plan in its platform, and the Gator Party, through its Chairman, Bill Byrd, who urged that the IFC support the O'Neal plan. These actions indicated that campus political parties can, when necessary, work together toward solving a common problem. Letters -ot he Editor.

Complains Of "Closed" Dance Dear Morty, This is the first occasion I have had to write a complaint to our paper, but the recent Alligator report on the Spring Frolics as being a "closed affair" to fraternity men has brought this issue to a head with me. I am a non-frat man myselt and.,think this high handed method of "freezing" those who don't belong out of attending a great Frolics like this one is a grave matter. Certainly the Inter-fraternity Conference deserves the bows for organizing these affairs, but it is no feather in their caps to monopolize the good times by allowing only fraternity men to attend. After al, the University facilities were not meant to be used by a select minority, but are supposed to be at the disposal of all Florida men. The fair way to deal with this matter is to turn over to non-frat men a certain percentage of the tickets, say 20 percent. In this manner all groups will be represented at the dance, and it will be a truly a democratic Florida Frolics. Very truly yours, .t James R.

Joint Recital Well Received By Students By Getrald Clarke Allgaior Music E sito Margaret Speaks and Conrad Thibault in joint recital excited their University Auditorium andience to enthusiasm Wednesday &rening. In a generous program the two artists pleased almost everyone. Those interested primarily in more serious music were satisfied with the rather well sung section of the program devoted to Mozart and Handel. Ronmberg Numbers Everyone enoyed the well done Lomberg numbers and the large selection of novelty numbers. These latter were amazing for the fact that they were novel and that they did make music. The rore than capacity audience askad for and received many encores. "Good Tone" Mr. Thibault sang Debussy's 'Beau Soir" with good tone and feeling. Miss Speaks was outstanding in the Handel song, "L'Enamouree." She held the audi.cnce enchanted with her. performnece of "The Lemon Colored Dodo," and Mr. Thibault succeded eually weli withdhistpresentation of "Amnelia Mixed the Mustard.' Before the program had gone very far, it was evident that it had been carefully constructed to create the N-dst variety of mustoal tastes. It certainly was a smcoEss hef.

"I am opposed to the proposed whitte primary bill, said Gray, "The bill, if passed, would not create a white primary, but would destroy the system we now have." "Uncle Joe'sMen" Emphasizing that Communism is the greatest threat to the nation at present, Gray said that "we have some men quite acceptable to Uncle Joe Stalin who are registered as Florida Democrats." He said that if the, proposed law is passed, state officials would be powerless to correct injustices ir primary elections. "The hands of state officials would be tied," he said. "Have Good Primary Laws" Stating that the main issue is' not the race question, but rather whether or not we should repeal our present laws, Gray told his audience that "Florida has a good system of primary laws," and added that we should npst. cast aside lightly those laws. "I Wuld' not want Florida to adopt the loose system used by some other Southern states in running primaries," he said. xr Could Exclude Other& "We may assume that the msajor objective of the proposed-4aw is to bar negroes from voting," said Gray, but pointed, out that the repeal of our present laws could lead to the --exdfii h--of' other groups in voting.

As a suggestion to help you in creating your slogan you might take into consideration the following facts: Paul's Food Mart is clean, his meats are the finest tender Western cuts in Gainesville, his service is courteous and good, and his prices are low. To prove this last point he offers the amazing low prices for the following items for Friday and Saturday, March 21 and 22: KINGAN'S POTTED MEAT, 3 for .23c FANCY WESTERN PORK CHOPS, lb.49c MAXWELL HOUSE COFFEE, lb. 45c BEECHNUT, HEINZ, & CLAPP'S BABY FOODS, 7 for .23c SEE YOU AT PAUL'S THE PANTRY in George's Service Station 9th AND WEST COURT In Front of the Humpty Dumpty Will Remain Open all Night Friday and Saturday MILITARY BALL PATRONIZE YOUR CO-OP GROCERY BEST BETS FOR THIS WEEK Shopping Hints Large Grade A Fresh yard Avoset Eggs, doz .53c Whipping Cream .37c Milford Kernel 12 oz.

On an appearance five years ago, the unscheduled encores wee. the highlights of the evening. I remember their rendition of Sibones, as being particularly beautiful. Tonight, the group, or leader, seem ed immune to applause from the audience. Did they sing all the song'I they knew, or would additional numbers delay the big dance? The Lyceum Council is supported by our fees. Why didn't they alone sponsor the program? And why was the reception not held at th:: Florida Union where there is ample room, and all would feel welcome:? Unless the object of the whole affair was to give the fra,t boys C thrill, I think it was handled very poorly. Sincerely, (EDITOR'S NOTE: According to information at our disposal, vould have been impossible for the Tally Glee Club to sing here if tIe' Phi Gains had not giv-en up their house for the night and moved nasse to their Air Base. As to why the reception was not held in ths, Union-you've got us there.) Ops-Wrong Man Pledged Dear Morty: Just ,to keep the record straight, I would like the student body tO know that the Carl Durrance, who pledged a fraternity last week i's not the one who is a candidate in the forthcoming election. Yours truly, Carl C. Durrance.
