a 9 Vol. VI BUSINESS MANAGER & EXCHANGE EDITOR FOR GATOR ELECTED -Mahon Resigns and DeVane, His Old Assistant, Steps Into His Shoes-Right Man in Right Place-HitchcOck Takes Over Exchange Department. Friday night at a meeting of the Student Body, Lacey Mahon tendered his resignation as Business Manager of the Alligator. Frank DeVane, his able assistant was Staff nominee for he position and was elected to fill the vacant place without opposition, as is he usual custom in regard to staff omimations. It is to he regretted that Mahon wAIS forced to give up lh13 pta0. I e has been a most efficient and sueessful manager, but as he explaind. an increased amount of school 'ork would make it necessary for him to resign. In selecting DeV place, the student ~o mistake, for he ane to fill body has is truly the this made right an in the right place. During the resent year he has been associated ith Mahon and is faniiliar with all ranches and phases of the work. Mahon explained that he could have one on with the work until the end f the semester, but that now at the eginning of a new year. when all counts were balanced, and all other usiness in good shape was the best ime for the change. K. C. Hitchcock was also elected xchange editor. In the past year his work has been cast upon the houlders of the managing editor. As he exchange list increased, the work as become heavier and heavier until ow when it was thought better by he staff to have one niore for this Osit iOn.

(From "Trench and Camp.") The football league schedule of I games that was run ott at Camp Wheeler was successful from every standpoint. The Headquarters Unit Signal Corps defeated the 106th Sup-. ply Train In the final game at Central City Park Thanksgiving (lay i a contest filled with thrills for the championship. The league developed a number of fast players and many former college stars again displayed their ability as a "pigskin" warror. All of the games were hard fought and many close contests took place. Large crowds were present at each conflict and the interest always ran ac hbzh tide. Every Southern college and many of the Northern, Eastern and XWestern colletres "ere represented on the field of play. Among the players were marny of the best that have ever graced the gridiron in this country, The representative teams were well coached and in each contest the spectators were brought to their feet by the execution of difficult plays. Selections Are Made. At a meeting held by the Division Athletic Council Ernday the following first and second "All Camp Wheeler" teams were selected. These selections werd made entirely on the showing the men put up in the regular scheduled games at the camp and no member of either of these two teams has been selected because of his previous college reputation. Either of the teams would favorably with any college the South. With practice compare team in together they woutd make it interesting for any eleven in this country. The teams have all the qualifications of a championship aggregation. The backfields are fast and possess the ability to penetrate the line. In the kicking department they have men who rank with the best. Place kickers, drop kickers and punters who can use their toe to great advantage. In passing the ball, running interference and other essentials necessary for a winning club they are well qualified. The lines, although heavy, are agile and shifty. Every man can charge like a "British tank"Fand as to the tackling end of the game they have few superiors. The first team would be captained by Tolley, former Sewanee star, who was unanimous choice for "AUl-Southern" when he was in college.

It is the desire of every one here to make as high grades as possible and especially grades above 75 per cent. It is for this reason that we are here, and we would feel; therefore, that we were making a sad failure should we not receive credit for having done the standard amount of work. As is generally the case, there are a number of students who have tailed to return after the holiday season; some of them perhaps are the ones who were accomplishing most and it was no doubt hard for them to give up tis work to take up another which they consider more important, however the reason that most of them did not return is because they realized that they were not getting what they: should, due to the fact that they were not giving what they should in studying. etc. With the elimination of these few, we should now have only those who are here to work and, unless you do work, you, too, will realitt, when exams are over, that you have not gotten what you should, for you will have failed to pass courses for which there was no mason, except th, lack of preparation. It is to be hoped that the pleasures of the Christmas season will serve as an inspiration to work the harder, and not as a drawback, for we should appreciate the duties which devolve upon us and endeavor to successfully perform them. If we fail to succeed here we can hardly expect to do our part or be successful after we get out. For the next two weeks let each one do the hardest studying that is possible and surprise a few of the As to the outcome of the Inter-class Football games, it was just about what could be expected. The Rats were the champions, naturally, because they have such a majority as to members and could have a higher standard in selecting their team. With the Seniors, however, it was not like this; the need being so great that everyone who went out was given place in order that a full team be maintained. The games were a success and afforded a means of working up some class spirit as well as giving amusement to the spectators. THE GLEE CLUB. The first meeting of this organization was held recently. It has as a leader a man who has made a success and given satisfaction everywhere he has been, and we feel that in securing the services of Prof. Chapman, formerly with Columbia College, the success of the University Glee Club for this year is assured. A Glee Club is one of the greatest assets of a college, and is an organization which should receive the appreciation and praise of every loyal st2dent. It goes out over the State and in this way serves as an advertising medium which is hard to be equalled; the concerts being annually anticipated by a number of towns over the State. From the standpoint of the membern of the club the annual trip is one of the most pleasant things of college life, for in every place they are accorded the true hospitality which makes their stay enjoyable It is understood that a trip is being planned for this spring which would be desired by any student. Anyone who feels that he is qualified or can be-. come so should try out and there should be enough applicants to make the competition pretty keen. WHAT CLASSES OF MEN WILL BE CALLED IN DRAFT ARMY. Under the new classification system men who registered June 5 and have not been selected for military service, are being classified, prerparatory to the call for the second draft army. Instead of being selected in the future in the order their numher came out in the big drawing at Washington, they will be called according to their order in their respective class, Class I being taken first, then Class 11. when Class I has been exhausted, and so on. Additions will probably be made to all classes from time to time, since Congress will probably provide for registration of men who have reached 21 since June 5, and may provide other age limits. Quotas have not been announced, and it is not known how many men will be required from the various local areas. When the call is made, the boards will issue notices to appear for physical examination to the men in Class I, in the order of their Ii,bility numbers in that class. If Class I does not contain enough physically fit men to make up the quota, examinations will begin in Class II, also according to order numbers. If the exigencies are such that the men in the field must be increased beyond Class I and Class II, Class III, and then Cass IV, will be drawn upon. Opinion offers as to the probability of Class V beng rached HOTEL FLORIDA', MOST POPULAR HOT EL Rates from S1.50 up J. B3.

The University began regular work, following the holiday season, at eight o'clock Wednesday morning. At chapel exercises, the President, Dr. A. A. Murphree, welcomed the students and urged them to increase their efforts in study and general tramnig, including the cultivation of religious and spiritual infuence. He announced that the University would be favored during January and the second term with a number of special educational features. Coming Events. The State Association of County Commissioners of Florida will meet in January in Gainesville and will use the University auditorium for their sessions. During this meeting, the Commnissioners will be addresset by the Governor of Fornda, Hon. Sidney J. Catts. Responding to the request of President Murphree. Goy. Catts has promised to gne the students a special address on "Citizenship and Patriotism." During the month of February, the University will enjoy a visit from Dr. Edwin E. Sparks, President of the Pennsylvania State College. He was formerly Professor of History-. Sociology and Economics at the Unversity of Chicago. Dr. Sparks wdil remain several 'days and gne special lectures in the auditorium to the tntire student-body on special topics regarding ancient and modern history. problems and lessons for the future These special addresses will be of much aid and benefit to the students New Addition to The Faculty.
