He set bebore the students the suggestion made y some of the faculty that the class retsome sort of a memorial on the mpus as is the custom at the Women's College in Tallahassee. Frank DeVane, with his usual feror, denounced this idea and stated btin his opinion the annual should secured by each man in the school nd should be cherished above all Chr school possessions as a perinanat reminder of the many happy hour. uet on this campus and the many gecations formed here. Mau Brown, te manner of the ,nd gave an outline of the expense atwould be attached to the underang and the per cent of expense atwould fall on each man.

H. C. A. team at Jacksonville by a score of 40-24. The victory, however, wa, no walk-away, as the inexperienced Florid. men fought every second of th. game. At the sound of the whistle both teams started off with rush. The Y. M. C. A. scored a foul then both teems alternated with two point scores. Finally the fly" pulled a little ahead and the half ended with them leading by a score of 17-13. The second half started with both five, determined and both "pulling" more brilliant and spectacular plays. After five minutes Florida overcame her opponent.' lead and held first honors until the last few minutes. The "Y" then suddenly awoke and shot goal after goal, soon taking the lead, which they held until the end. Madison and Marshall played best for Florida while Moore was easily the star of the Y. Pd. C. A. From Jax the 'Gatorn journeyed to Palatka where they defeated the fast team representing the Palatka Athletic Association by a 40 to 18 score.

The attendance of the Law School of the University of Florida, this year, is about the same in numbers as that of Yale. The law building and the law library impressed Professor Wurts as comparing favorably with those of any State University in the country. The standing of the members of the faculty, as legal educators and writers, and the high standard required of the Law school at this University are attracting attention of men from all part. of the Nation. It is anticipated that he will soon return and that he may be indeed to give a feir leetues to to CLASSES VOTE FOR 1918 SEMINOLE. At a meeting of the Junior class on Friday it was decided that an individual assessment of six dollars should be levied on the members for the purpose of aiding the Seniors in publisn th 19seq180 Seminole. byhis Senibrs. It includes a paid-in-full subscription to the annual and all assessments for cuts and other space In the book devoted to Junior activties. On motion of Leo Wilson, the Sophomores went on record Friday night as favoring and pledging their support %o the issuing of the 1918 Seminole, agreeing to stand behind the Seniors in whatever action the latter might take in the matter.

Chasmes On The Staff. ,The resignation of George R. Bailey and W. P. Jernigan from th9 Staff, due to the fact that other urgent duties require their $ mention during th& Second Semeser, has occasioned another change in the editorial heads of the Alligator. The policy of the gator will continue the same as heretofore,-to boost the University at all times and to furnish subscribers with all the news the campus affords, occasionally asking journalistic license to supply them with a little it doesn't afford. 'The interests of the Alligator are as broad and varied as college life itself. We want to know the particulars of Dr. Murpliree's speech to the Y. M. C. A., Prof. Bz's nocturnal experiences, semester-end celebrations, dfections of the Athletic Hoard of Directors, a rat's maiden speeth before his literary society, the effect of matrimony on a professor's disposition. Everything is grist for our mill. Hut in order to reflect faithfully this many-sided life we would ask the student body for even greater co-peration than has been previously accorded the Alligator. We would urge them to meet the reporter half-.: way. Any member of a campus organization should feel it his duty to see that its proceedings| get due publicity.

Although then may be no lack of leadership there will undoubtedly be a dearth of assistants and this must at least in part be supplied from the lower classes. Evens more imperative were the financial considerations. A deficit seemed imminent due to decreased enrollment and consequent decrease of sales. Add to this' the fact that the cost of putblication will undokabtedly be higher this year and it might webl be questioned w~hither an' annual wouldbe desirable. However, figures submitted by the Seminole Staff proved that it every man in the University, freshman and sophomore as well as upper-classman, were willing to do his share we could put out a Seminole that would be fully up to the standard. The proposition was put squarely before each class and after duly considering the cost, they voted that the annual monument of the University's achievements should not be dispensed with, although requiring perhaps additional sacrifices. In voting thus the students showed the temper and spirit of true Florida men and demonstrated once again that love of their school is to them a living reality.

The Summer TermThe action of the Board of Control in prodding for a Stimfler taw Couirse is yerygnficant. It gpes to' prove that the Summer Term has been successful and the act must necessarily contribute to its further advan'cenent. Every year the Summer School assumes a greater importance in the work of the University. The scope of its eflfots is constantly widening. We are coming to recognize with increasing clearness that Florida climatic conditions do not necessitate a long summer vacation. The warm spell in Florida is of' longer duration, but it is at no time so intense and enervatingas that of the north. Yet in spite of the suffocating heat of the northern summer many universities, among which may be cited in particular the University of Chicago and Columbia University in no way slacken their activities during the summer. The introduction of the Summer Law Course shows that we are coming to appreciate this fact. It will fill a long felt need., There are hundreds of men in the State anxious to add to their knowledge of the Law but who could attend the University at; no other time. The summer is generally a slack season thruout Florida and then more than at any other time men and women can be spared from their regular occupations to add to their store of knowledge. This is undoubtedly a great steji forward yt it is prtinent to raise the question if we have1 advanced as far as is to be desired. In other words, why should the Summer Ternm be restricted to a bare eight weeks? Other universities are conduct ing Summer Terms lasting three months with great success and -----. r. .n .nrr n~ G ELPKGE FrITZ I ~iNews was received several days ago at the Kappa Alpha house of the death at an Illinois training camp of George Fritz, a U of F. student from 1915 to 1917, and a member of the Kappa Alpha fraternity.
