U VI University of Florida, Gainesville, Wednesday, January 16, 1918 No. 14 DOVE.CATTS SPEAKS IN CH APE L A ND REVIEWS BATTALION Pehivers Address on Citizenship and Patriotian; Discuses War and Says Engiand Caz't Play the Hog This Time.' Governor Catt. paid a visit to the University Monday, speaking in chapel and afterwards reviewing the battalion at dress parade. The address at the morning chapel exercises, "Citizenship and Patriotlam," was delivered in the usual impressive and masterful manner of Governor Catta. Beginning with the birth of our nation, the Governor traced the development of the true meaning of citizenship. Then he showed how, hand in hand with citizenship came patriotism as a factor in the upbuilding of the greatest commonwealth the world has ever known. At a point near the middle of his speech the Governor referred to woman suffrage, and immediately became enthusiastic on the subject. "The enfranchisement of woman," said he, "i. the greatest step that has been and .ilI be taken towards true citizenship. We could not say that we had a perfect system of citizenship while one half the human race remained in bondage. Thank God the eyes of America have been opened; only th other day stp wrn taken in our Congress to put the question of woman's enfranchisement before the people of the United Stae. And, take it from me, fellows, the American people are going to give woman the ballot. We can not keep her from having it." Continuing his address Governor Catts took up the present war. He declared that what is needed on the battle fields in Europe is a Stonewall Jackson or a Robert E. Lee with a few hundred thousand boys from Dixie to give their Rebel yell as they marched against the forces of Kaiser Bill. With a great flank movement' the Governor thinks the army of Imperdal Germany could be annihilated. I"It takes the patriotism of the; Southern boys combined with the leadership for the production of which the South is noted to put pep into anything," said the governor. Our President has called the hand of England and all other greedy nsin by his statement of the war aims of the United States. Old England has played the hog in every deal of hers since her history began. But she will find a check rein on her if she fools with Uncle Sam about the Y. E .A. ELECTION SUNDAY IN CHAPEL Whitner, Willina and Bathe are Oficers--Plana for Fine Programs During the Rest of the Year. Sunday afternoon in the chapel room in Ag. Hall officers for the Y. M. C. A. were elected, the men chosen for the various offices were, B. F. Whitner Pres., Duke Williams VicePresident and Harold Bsche Secretary and Treasurer. Bill Stone retiring president in nominating Whitner explained that he had been on the look for some time for a good man to take his place and to really do the job, up brown. He said that to his mind Whitner was the best man on the campus and would be consistent in his efforts to make the Y. M. C. A. profitable to all at.dents. Mr. Whitner upon taking the chair gave a brief sketch of the work and aisof the Y. M. C. A. in the to!lteres an als whe spoke in glowin it accomplished in the trainig camps ing that "It will be a shame if the University of Fjorida can't have a good wide-awake chapter of the Y. Pd. C. A' .Plans are afoot whereby the school is to be treated to a number of good things, including talks by different members of the faculty and special muskc by the women in town. It is to be regretted that in such a good work -s thi. so few fellows take an interest in attending the meetings. At the meeting Sunday only a few were present, hardly a fifth of the student body. It is indeed a sad state of affairs when men ambitious enough to come to college, are willing to let opportunities to bear instructive men speak, slip through their fingers without an effort to grasp them. UNIVERSITY MOOT' COURT ThIALS.' On Saturday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock the case of Sarah Ri. Johnson vs. Alex Rollins was called. This was a hotly contested case in which the plaintiff sued the defendant, a phyMici.,n for alleged malpractice in the diet given her husband who suffered from typhoid fever. The attorneys for the plaintiff were Mr. Marcus Brown and Mr. J. S. Benz, while the defendant was represented by Mr. D. V. Rouse and Mr. Lacy Mahon. The jury disagreed. On Monday night the last of the Common Law cases was trfed. This was an action for breach of contract. The Plaintiff Hobbs was represented FOURTH ANNUAL HIGHSCHOOAL METL .4 13 Prelimm~aries-9 a. in.

BIG STORM FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT Does Much Damnage -n Camnpus, Windows, Fene. sad Tree. BMown Down. Battle Rages and Shrapnel-ShelD in Cadh .. Friday night the campus was .visited by what was probably the most violent storm since the founding of the University. Giant pine trees which were famous as land marks on the campus were pulled out by the roots or broken off even with the ground by the wind, much as a boy would snap a handful of small twigs. Many large limbs and branches and much moss wa, blown down, togther with several window?' and a large section of fence along the north aid of the grounds-. Work started at once Saturday morning to hauling anay the debris land clearing up the fallen tre, to put then, in shape .a stove wood. At time of publication the grounds no longer bear resemblance to "no-man' a land" as seen on the western battle front. About nine o'clock the lights went out because of several trees which had blown on the wires near town. This worked no great hardship -s it was near bed time, but it did cause some hard feelings between room mates owing to the return to savagery made evident by the many shoes, books etc., that were hurled through the air only to find lodgnmnt behind an ear or other unprotected spot. For the time being at least each room was a miniature battle field, beds taking the place of first line trenche, and shoes, books and ink wells substituting -s hand grenades,. the degree of accuracy with which the missiles were thrown by the playfuji students augurs no good for the poor boche soldier when U. of F. goes to war. At the end of the siege and the end of the temporary martial rule peace was declared and each army disposed of by casting anchor and sailing anay to slumber land where dreams of "shots" for all the profs are in orCONVENTION COUNTY COMMISSIONERS HERE IN LAW AUDITORIUM Patterson, Gow. Catts and McQuarnie are Speakers; .Commussioners Have Lofty Goal in View, Cadets Review. Monday morning after hearing Governor Catts speak in chapel, and after seeing the University cadet. pass in review, the County Commis sioners of Florida convened for a the a : mting iB th practice cour rom oftheLaw uiling-. Owing to some mixup in sending out invitation, a mistake was made as to the proper day of opening, so only a very small portion of the twohundred and seventy who were invited utre here on time for what was intended to be the grand opening. In the absence of the president, Mr. L. L. Nogga, Mr. W. E. Bryant, who is Director of the Executive Board of Florida, and chairman of the Alachua County Board of Commissioners acted as chairman of the meeting. A motion was made and carried, to delay the opening of the gathering, for official business until Tuesday morning when a more representative body could be present. This motion however was amended to include a meeting Tuesday afternoon to hear Gov. Catta speak. Mr. Patterson, one of the three members of the Stats Tax Commission was the first speaker of the day, he opened by explaining that he was only a talker and act a seakr, but with some ocult spell he succeeded in holding his hearers spellbound on that threadbare His talk waste his experience.

He niade clear the tax-dodger was that the majority of would be forced to of expense for the many improvements that are comin! to the State-. ?dr. Patterson closed his interesting talk in terms befitting the orator with an eloquent plea for the co-operation of the Tax Assessor and the County Commissioners with the Stat. Tax Commission to enforce the laws, and assist each other by putting the burden where it should be, on the shoulders of the idle rich who are well able to bear without effort or loss. Mr. Pattersn on the program expressed a word of regret that more of the Commissioners could not be present and then dove headlong into the subject matter at hand in his typical Catt style. His talk also was largely on Taxes, their history and development and OR. MURPHREE wiLL SPEAK TO Y. M.C. A. tractive and instructive talks which the Y. NI. C. A. staff has promised for the rest of the year, the Y. M. C. A. has the pleasure of announcing a talk by Dr. A. A. Murphree. It is needless to urge the students to attend this meeting, which will be held in Chapel on Sunday, Jan. '29th, for each one knows that whatever Dr. Mdurphree has to say will be helpful and inspiring of the work in, and the work which had been accomplished and was yet to be done in Florida. This work he implied, was one of great importance and was far reaching in its effects. In concise terms he showed just hOW It was planned to reach the farmer, who wae unable to attend lectures etc., and unable to devote a large portion of his time to reading bulletins and pamphlets sent out by the-Experiment Station, bow it was able to rech the tarners in his own home, on his own farm and by actual demonstratIon by trusted men, teach hin, different ways to improve hi. surroundings, his stock, his plants and last it taught him a method of rotation by which his land could be built up by natural means and greatly enhanced in value, to the benefit of both the farmer and the Commonwealth. In closing he exnlted the power that made it possible for the spread and continuance of this great wave, and thanked the County Commisuionern for acting -s a missing link in provdwng the County Demoestratice agent as the "go-between" of the Extension Board and the people. Tuesday morning the Commissioners convened to take up the regular routine work, and to hear from the different members talks as to the different solutions for the many complex problems which confront them in the fulfillment of their official duties. 'This is the second annual meeting of this board, and has in view a noble and lofty end: nothing less than the enlightenment of the stat, legislative boards as to the needs of the people. By exhaustive Cfor they hop. to have passed different approved and adopted resolutions as drafted by them, which will facilitate their actions in office.

Honor Systein -adopted by the .tud.t body of the University of Filrds, just prior to the dlo. of S.e Z9fl-'16 ansion, Pertains particubury to conduct during examinationn. ItS scope include. all work connected wrdk ay college county and its aim is Se peevest illegitunat. aid or the use *1 s. other student's work for your wu, but though its scope is so wide sad it. ain so definite is chief re-salt. have cow. in the change it has eased in the management of examinations. This change consists in the diferent attitude of both the Prof esamr and the student; the former feels at liberty to go about other work and not be "on watth" as was the custom sonmc year. ago, while the student treated thus is better able to collect his thoughts than if he were being guardedi lke a convict." A breach of our Honor System conslat. in giving or reve,'ing illegit,mnate aid and also in the failure to report such breach by another party. Ther, have been cases, fortunately wery few, of a breach of honor at this University. There may be one or I awne students here now who have no honor. The same course is open to you as to your predecessors They I Were found out and the law. was entowced: this will be done in every other case. It is hard for a m'an devoid of honor to stay on our Camnpus,. With the mid-year exammnations eomning on in a few days it was thought well to make the above stateneat. It is on the order of a rewinder and is for all students to give cart fi consideration, for this plan is your. and you are responsible for lbs operation.

An annual event of eardy April is the State High School Meet which Will be held this year on Saturday April 13th. Thws will be the fourth time in the history of this State that I the High Schools have met together. on the campus of the State University to hold an athletic meet and encour-. tgr athletes among the high Scho2s. STUDENTS MEETINGSwhy there should be auch poor representations at student meetings? The outstanding one arid probably th, only one is "no interest." However, there should be interest on the part of every student to attend the meetings which affect him. It would be a disgrace to publish the number out for the last meeting of the student body called during the past week, and the game refers to a meeting of the Senior Class which was held on last Thursday. There is every reason for a good attendance at these meetings, for the purpose of holding them is to transact business, which is hard to do with so few present. With such "spirit" as was voiced by the attendance of the above mentioned meetings, ,t would hardly be possible to accomplish much', 80, therefore, we urge that hereafter don't let anything interfere with your presence at the next student meetlag. They never take many minute and if then on time you will sooc get thru and then will be no loss,; it wilt only be an encouragement to thome who are trying to do something,.
