A $40,000 project to com-
plete the unfinished wing of
Florida Union has been au-
thorized by the Board of
Control, University officials
announced this week.
Construction on the wing began
several years ago, but because of
wartime shortages of materials
the interior has never been fin-
ished. Authorization to begin
work on completing the interior
will make available space badly

tions whose offices and meeting
rooms are housed in the Union
Clay tile shingles are on hand
and the roofing job will be fol-
lowed by interior work on either
the second or third floor.
Original plans for the wing call
for additional lounges, a new au-
ditorium, student offices and rec-
reational rooms. However, imme-
diate plans in the $40,000 project
are calculated only to provide of-
fices and meeting rooms, with the

At Florida Field
Florida FIeld is benefitted by
an up-to-date scoreboard which is
operated completely by electricity.
The score of the game, the time
left to play, and the quarter are
controlled by the fifth official sit-
uated on the sidelines. All he has
to do is push a button, when nec-
essary to change the scoreboard.
Yardage and downs are operat-
ed by Erwin Fleet from the side-
lines also. He moves up and down
the field with the ball and keeps
an accurate tab on these two im-
portant matters. He carries with
him a small push button box op-
erated by electricity. Under-
ground wires run from the score-
board to the dugouts on either side
of the field, making outlets for
these electrically controlled boxes.

Construction Projects Progress
As Several More Are Started
By Dell Loyles !
In addition to the already
astounding amount of construc-
tion work going around campus,
more jobs were started this week'
with word of more to come.
Most heartening news to come
from the office of the Business
Manager was the assurance that
construction is expected to resume
on the Cafeteria addition during
November. The present goal calls
for completion of the addition by
Easter. It is hoped that students
can start using the new addition
when they return from Easter Hol-
idays and work will then com-
mence on gutting and remodeling
the present Cafeteria.
Supervision and construction on
this big job is under direction of
Guy C. Fulton, Architect for the
State Board of Control. When
the entire project has been com-
pleted. there will be three dining
halls capable of seating one thous-
and at a time. The building will
be air conditioned and the job
will cost $891,000.
Cafeteria, Going Again
The Business Office advised it
is doubly happy to announce con-
struction on the Cafeteria is get-
ting under way once more since
feeding has been one of its biggest
problems. Since the end of the
war, the dining halls have been
feeding up to five times their
normal capacity. The new addi-
tion will not only seat more stu-
dents but will also make possible
better preparation and handling
of meals by the Cafeteria staff.
The Cafeteria is not the only
place to see signs of renewed ac-
tivity. The State Board of Con-
trol released funds this week to
complete the unfinished wing of
the Student Union Building. Work

A. J. Burnham, in charge of

of these tickets are supposed to go
to the cashier's office and pay the,

Jax Alumni Plan
Mammouth Pep Rally
And Parade Are
The University of Florida Alum-
ni Club of Jacksonville announces
plans for the following program
on the occasion of the Georgia-
Florida football game on Novem-
First, a mammoth rally of all
Gator supporters in Hemming
Park beginning at 10:15 a.m. An
amusing and interesting program
has been planned including the ap-
pearance of leading dignitaries of
the state. Following the rally
promptly at 11:00 a.m. there will
be a parade through downtown
The Gator Pep Club from the
University of Florida is in charge
of this parade and has been work-
ing for several weeks to insure
that it will be large, colorful, and
exciting. Floats will be sponsored
by various fraternities of the Uni-
versity and by other organizations,
with a prize going to the winning
float. Fine bands and marching
units will be featured.
That night, following the game,
the Alumni Club will hold a "get-
together" dance for all Florida
supporters, (students, alumni, and
friends). The dance will be held
in the George Washington Hotel
Auditorium from 9:30 to 1:30.
Only a nominal charge is being
made for the tickets which may
be purchased at the Florida Union
Building in Gainesville, or may be
secured at the door that night.
It is emphasized that there will
be seating space for everyone as
well as plenty of room for those
who wish to dance. This is the
first of the annual alumni dances
planned by the Jacksonville Club.

By Bob Browder
Are we deliberately planning to
waste four years here at the Uni-

his bureau of vocational guidance

make decisions that will tend to

final decisions will be based on
interest. The carefully trained
counsellors are the important link
in this program. Without them

Give Credit Where Due
For Homecoming Success
The greatest Homecoming in the his-
tory of this institution has now gone down
in the history book as something to be
looked to for reference. The crowds, the
spirit, the greetings, and the general at-
mosphere have all been recorded in the
minds of over 25,000 people.
We would not try to recapture what
went on during the past week-end, for
words could not describe the greatness of
such an occasion. Words also could not
give thanks where credit is due.
We would like to pass out a few flow-
ers, however, while the memory of such
a successful week-end is still lingering
around. Florida Blue Key came through
again. This time, headed by Mark Hul-
sey, the organization went through its
planning, preparation and the actual pro-
ducing of such an event with such coop-
eration that it places another star among
its already great reputation.
Mack Christie, the general chairman of
Homecoming, whose expert hands guided
every event with professional-like preci-
sion, deserves the greatest bunch of flo6w-
ers that could ever come his way. The
rain all morning Friday almost added
enough years on him to be older than the
oldest alumnus present, but slipped away
just in time to let all the events of the
week-end move smoothly according to
All organizations, including APO,'the
"F" Club, each fraternity and dorm sec-
tion. and each individual who had any-
thing to do with the occasion, should be
wholeheartedly praised for this success,
but space will not permit a complete
"credit where due" editorial.
While we are on this event, we should
mention what Al Schacht said about Ga-
tor Growl. In all of his travels through-
out the. world (and he has seen a lot of
pep rallies), he stated that he had never
seen any of them like our own Gator
Growl. Incidentally, Al Schacht went
back to New York feeling disgusted with
himself over his act. He had brought his
piano and other properties, but the cut on
his hand-which took three stitches-
prevented him from using those acts. We
thank him for carrying on a few minutes
more, and for giving the University and
its student body such a compliment.
With the type of student leaders we
have, we can look for a brighter future
Supporting The FIC
As we presented this summer, here is a
suggestion to organize wh at may be
called the FIC.
The Inter-Fraternity C o n f e r e n c e,
known as the IFC, is an organization gov-
erning the. fraternities on the campus. In
the past this group has been the main-
stay in the social functions of the entire
canipus, especially on three of the biggest
wcee'-elldS of the year. For many years
th e I C provided its members with tickets
;and had enough left over to place on sale
for anyone who wished to attend. At one
time during the war the entire student
bo Ly-numbering 600-could attend and
still have room for others.
ast year, the IFC grew-that is, the
numLnber of frat men increased to an all-
time high of 2,400. The conference stud-
ied for weeks to figure out a way to have
an all-campus function. It desired to
continue the custom, but fell into one pit-
fall-space. You see, it had carried the
brunt of the campus social affairs for so
long that no organization had been
formed to handle all-student functions.
We want to see the Independent be-
come stronger on the campus. In most
colleges they have become .organized. We
suggest that the FIC-Florida Independ-
ent Conference-be formed to be the
speaker for the Independents who could
work side by side with the IFC and Stu-
dent Government for extensive social af-
The Cavaliers this week undertook to
take the lead in organizing for the unor-
ganized Independents. As big a week-end
as Fall Frolics, and up until space is avail-
able to invite the entire student body, it
takes some organization like the Cavaliers
to take the initiative. It just serves an-
other way of saying that we need the FIC.
We Are Going Places
The University of Florida is going
places-as long as we have a large num-
ber of loyal, civic-minded students on the
campus who wish for it to go places.
Each student should realize his place in
the plan for one of the greatest universi-
ties in the nation. The talk of school
spirit and school devotion is all right, but
it goes further than that.
School spirit, also, can be taken in the
wrong way, and it can become rowdy and
out of hand, if the right type of devotion
is not inspired in each one of you.
For instance, the celebration after Flor-
ida's first victory was normal. It was ac-
tually great. The spirit was right there,
and it was the right type of school spirit.
On the other hand, the incident early
last.Saturday morning a few hours after
Gator Growl was not the spirit and con-
duct of Florida men who wish the Univer-
sity to be great by protecting the good
name. Building a bonfire in the middle
of University Avenue, destroying prop-
erty, and lowering Florida's name blocked
the campus progress just as much as a
great weekend or a winning football team
would aid the growth of the University.
If there were fifteen students in that
group who had enough of Florida spirit
in them, this incident would not have hap-
pened. Just think about this-it comes
from the inside out-and act accordingly.
We should have no feud between the
cheerleading squad and -the Florida
Band. A few mix-ups were noticed,
however, d ur in g the Homecoming
game when the band and cheerleaders
were unable to get together on when
and what to do. Throughout all phases
of college life, particularly in extra-
curricular activities, we'need that old
In Fair Or Foul Weather
Let's AHl Stick Together
As pointed out in the masthead of this
paper, the opinions of our columnists are
their own and the Alligator doesn't neces-
sarily agree with them. We' and our pol-
icies certainly don't agree with "Bull Ses-
sion" in jabs at the football team, for one
sound licking doesn't put us back in the
doldrums after reaching the heights of ex-
hilaration over a Florida victory the week
before. As long as the team is fighting as
it is, we'll support them and hope never to
be accused of being "fair weather" fans.
In an editorial Oct. 10 we said, in the ver-
nacular, "We' have a team that's going to
deck a few of the big boys this season."
Two weeks later the Gators downed
North Carolina State, rated the No. 18
team in the. nation.
Because they were beaten by North
Carolina, a powerhouse which has just
found itself, is not sufficient cause to be
discouraged. The men are fighting and
we believe that fight will bring them out
with just about a 50-50 record.

Bull Session By Odell Griffith
We resent the sour wits who
last week-end declared, somewhat
needlessly, that the frat house dec-
orations would have been nearer
realization if they had depicted
a. prostrate and fightless gator
being ground beneath the wheels
of a surging choo-choo train. And
there is no' humor in the sugges-
tion that we change the name of
our Gator Growl to that of the
Gator Whine. For we have the
unwavering faith that Florida will
produce a winning football team,
if not in our time, then in our
children's or their children's time.
Many students and alumni are
upset about the almost unbroken
strings of defeats of the Gators.
We're not disturbed. One team
has to lose. And why shouldn't
Florida be consistent in its losses ?
Then there is the element of art:
one finds a certain emotional beau-
ty-not frustration, friend-in go-
ing to growls and pep rallies, yell-
ing oneself hoarse, and then go-
ing to the game or hovering about
the radio with the almost certain
knowledge that one's team will be
whitewashed, drenched or at least
showered well with the water of
defeat. To use a Gluntism, there
is something about this beauty
which is closely related to the
straw-wrapped Christian of Nero's
time: perhaps you might call it
the desire of self-sacrifice; and
we too have the hope that if we
don't make anything but a smoke
smudge for. a flame here we'll
surely give' Georgia, Mississippi
and North Carolina a hell of a
licking when the points are total-
ed on the celestial scoreboard.
There are those who intimate
that the taxpayer of the sovereign
.;tate of Florida is getting uneasy
about the ridicule to which his
University is subjected as a result
of the gridiron 'games. To that
we would like to reply with as
much righteous dignity as we can
muster: It's none of the taxpay-
er's business. After all, what right
'has the taxpayer got to go nosing
around? He merely pays for the
University, and it's his duty to
pay for 'educational institutions.
If a coach can turn out nothing
but defeated teams year after
year, it's not the role of the citi-
zen to question why; his is to pay
and then die as the visitors' scores
continue to rise. And other pro-
fessional and avocational stand-
ards to the contrary, it's better
to have a lousy football tearr
rather than have no team at all.
Florida's continual defeat is like
the military caste system. As one
former colonel recently told us,
there's no problem in either case:
you grin and bear it, or merely
bear it if you do not have the
admirable qualities of a Polly-
However, after this defense of
the 'Gators, we would like to make
one humble suggestion: For next
Homecoming let us schedule a
game with Tampa U., or, better
still, with a Tally all-girl team.
Then after the game we would
really have something to crow

to be deplored, at least in the case
of radio. (Personally, I've seen

processes. It is one of the beau-

Its value depends upon the
amount of interest which people

seems that if you kill interest in
records, it is also very likely that
interest in other forms of music
will slip. What happens to mu-

Hank Speaks For All Good Gators
Seems to me that the Florida football team has an awful lot of
fair weather friends here on the campus. After the Gators had taken
N. C. State, joy reigned supreme in the town, and there was nothing
too fine for the guys who had done the job, but here it is only two
short weeks after this terrific triumph and remarks have and are be-
ing made to the effect that Florida lucked out in the State game and
we probably won't win another this year.
I, for one, don't give a damn whether the student body thinks we
lucked out or not. The important thing is that we beat the No. 18
team in the country. We have nothing to be ashamed of in our defeat
by North Carolina. No one will question the fact that we saw one of
the outstanding teams in the country really get hot.
Another thing, for those students who think the ball players aren't
jutting out, I suggest they drop around Io the training room any day
and take a look a.t the injuries receiving treatment. I assure you these
boy s didn't get that way falling off the chess table.
Let's see a little more support for the Gators and a lot less crit-
icism of the way things are going.

The AVC Voices Its Opinion
We wish to take this opportunity to explain to Mr. Elihu Edelson
and to other interested persons the position of the University Chapter
of AVC on the Tampa University issue. Mr. Edelson is apparently
not antagonistic to our organization and appears to have an open
Far from having "leaked out" it had appeared in all Florida, news-
papers that Dr. Na,nce had banned AVC from forming a chapter on
the campus of his University. After this came the deluge of letters
from hasty individuals branding Dr. Nance as reactionary. They felt
that no private organization should be allowed to ban another private
organization from any campus. That is what had happened. The
University of Florida Chapter did not act so hastily. Three members
were appointed to interview Dr. Nance personally. This they did, and
in a private interview of more than an hour's duration found that, as
Mr. Edelson states, Dr. Nance is a liberal and has a fine record as
Contrary to Mr. Edelson's informant,. members of the American
Legion Round Table including its chairman were present at the forum
Oct. 8. At this time they refused to present their charges, saying
that they had not had sufficient time to collect their evidence. They
failed to realize that one's evidence is generally present before any
accusations are made. After all, who started this fiasco?
Dr. Nance at this time, assuming a man is guilty until he proves
himself innocent, still refused to let the AVC organize until they could
clear themselves of the Legion's charges. We would like to know
how this can be done when they flatly refused to answer our chal-
lenge to prove their charges.
The AVC is a liberal organization for veterans of World War II
and is ready to defend its principles against any charges that they are
in any manner whatsoever connected with subversive groups.

Florida Chapter of AVC.
Let's Have A Student Laundry!
There has been much discussion about the establishing of a student
cooperative laundry here on the campus, but as yet I have not seen
positive action toward the idea. There are quite a few reasons why
such a project is urgently needed for all the inhabitants of the campus.
Perhaps of primary importance is the apparent fact that the aver-
age campus student has not the large income to continually pay the
high cost of present standardized laundry prices. This is no plea for
a drastic reduction in current charges, but more an idea to lessen the
strain of high laundry prices by taking the cooperative student laun-
dry as an alternate course.
The argument that such an establishment would be resented by the
laundries of Gainesville does not fairly represent the viewpoint of the
average student. If the laundries wish to keep the University busi-
ness. then let them give consideration to the fact that the majority
of students just manage to get by on the sum allowed by the govern-
ment. Otherwise we arc totally justified in bettering our financial
status. And a cooperative laundry is the solution.
Let's get support behind this plan. Surely there are many govern-
ment surplus buildings which would suffice as a temporary laundry
unit. This is an urgently needed project, so here's hoping we get some
action started. Frankly, no "soft soap" in words will clean clothes!
Very truly yours,

A GOOD MAN'S
HARD TO FIND
Amber was noted for her star-
tling beauty even as a girl in Mic-
anopy. She had a striking resem-
blance to Linda Darnell. "I ain't
gonna marry up with no back-
woods hog." she told her father.
"I want marry up with an edu-
cated feller like Cornel Wilde!"
One night early in the 17th cen-
tury, Amber was silhouetted in
her window trying out that "New
Look." She happened to look down
and there stood her dream boy.
"I am Bruce Carlton, president of
the Florida Student Body," he
said. "Could you direct me to
The chase was on! Amber left
Micanopy early the next morning.
"Odds-fish." exclaimed Lord Alms-
bury, Bruce's room-mate, "we
never expected to see you again!"
"I am here to marry up with
Bruce," answered Amber. "My
sweet young trollop," laughed
Bruce, "didn't you know that I
have been elected to Blue Key? I
couldn't possibly marry you."
This is the type of story that
is luring patrons into the nation's
top theaters from New York's
Roxy to G'ville's State. Miss Dar-
nell does well with the role of a
Restoration Scarlett O'Hara. She
falls a little short on dramatic
ability but she fills the main re-
quirements very well-that of be-
ing able to jump up and down in
some of the lowest-cut gowns in
Hollywood history. Mr. Wilde does
tolerably well in his scenes, dis-
playing the trimmest physique of
all in the initial line-up for Am-
ber. Richard Haydn is sneeringly
effective with his Earl of Rad-
cliffe. George Sanders gives with
an admirable amount of swish as
King Charles II. John Russell
makes a fair impression in his
screen debut as Black Jack Mal-
lard. He leers very well. Glenn
Langan, something of a newcomer,
leers much less successfully.
But back to the two hours and
35 minutes of Kathleen Winsor's
whopper--"One momentous after-
noon, Amber spied Bruce strolling
across the Plaza of the Americas
with a pert little co-ed. She rushed
back to Language Hall and slipped
into her negligee. Within a few
days, Bruce strode in: "I am here
for my boy," he demanded. "I have
gone through so much for you."
