'"Gonna-die an' wants you to make his-will-getahusselon!" "Gee Whfz!" gasped Shorty, grab.bing a prayer-book with one hand and the worn-out Futch with the other and starting for parts unknown. "Whizzee? Whazzizname, Futeb?" he asked, looking up at his taller companion as they banged through the door of the section and whirled out into the night. "Huh! Wants me to make his wil?

Wisen the ijSreaohS room 24 Shorty alightM, eompsdWhaef and made a stately and solemn entrance into the room-an entrance perfectly appropriate for a distinguished practitioner., who has been called to the deathbed of a wealthy client, to make. A group of young men stood around one of the beds in the small sleeping alcove, their expressions serious and their nianner nervous-an anticipatory nervousness which the new arrival, in his excitement, failed to notice as such. Before them, on the bed, covered by a sheet, lay the dying man from St. Augustmne, the sick friend for whom Shorty was about to perform the last sad offices. The shrouded body hea'edi slightly now and then, showmirg that consciousness had not yet tied. Well, let's see him,' said Shorty,. inl a most professional tone. and he ste ppedi up to the bed with his prayerbook Someone reached u'tr and tuirnedl back the cc,'ermig.

He proved the statement, it is said, Tuesday night: he sped to the scene of the trouble and he was ready to spiel off a good one in honor of the dying man's death. But the turning back of the bed-cover struck him, as it had the others, speechless. William Harold Shad, Shafter W. Cason, and others appeared during the evening in response to summonses from members of the party. After they had all laughed it off and gone to their rooms, Leo, urged by \lessrs. Futch, Futch and Huff, who occupy Ward 24 of Buekman Hal!, adjourned and went to town to seek a less downy couch. It appeared after his departure that he possessed a sense of humor even keener than that of his human partners in crime, and before leaving had decided to play a little joke all his own on the genial Mr. Futch. Mr. Futch passed the mainder of the night in another bed. DR.

HERDY" FODTEL OF U. F. BOYS IN WAR Wrntes to Dr. Murphree from "Somewhere in France"-Johnny Clark Has MeaslesTy Cobb is Aliv and Kicking. The following letter, written by Herbert G. Ford, of Tampa, from a Camp in France, was received by President Marphree a few days ago. It gives interesting news concerning the U F. ambulance unit which is in France a little less than a year after its organization in Gainesville: "Sonmewhere in France," Feb. 11, 1918. Dear Dr Murphree: Just a line to let you know that the University of Florida Ambulance Ibrtt has at last reached France. We landed mn England on January the 24th and stayed in an American Rest Camp there for ten days. Our camp was just outside of one of England's oldest and most historic towns, and though we were not able to roam about as we pleased, we managed to see quite a little of the town and surrounding country by taking hikes. There were more British "Tommies" foun it a ecry interestin pastime to talk with them, for the majority of them, had seen active service, and some, I am, sorry to say. their last active service. While there we were fed wih Brts ainwihw found very good especially after the awful meals we had aboard ship. Left our camp in England last Sunday morning and crossed the channel that night, landing a;a large French seaport the following morning. We spent Monday and Tuesday in another Rest C amp anti left Tuesday night in: "side-door Pullmans" for our present! camp which we reached Thursday morning.

Cobb came down to our barracks this afternoon with the news that they would leave at 5 o'clock in the morning for the base. We hate to see them leave, but certainly do envy then,. We left Clark and the two Howzes in England with the German measles and Bratley with the mumps, but expect them to join us in a couple of weeks. The rest of the section are in the best of health and looking forward to the tune when we will get in action. All of the Florida boys send their best regards and wish to be remembered to the Faculty and the Student Body. Would appreciate a line from you anytime you can spare the time. Yours most sincerely,.

WOR ON"S-INLE IS PROGRESSING Work which was launched on the Florida Seminole some time ?go is progressing favorably, and a very efficient organization has been effected. George Bailey, editor-ic-chief, reports that practically all the differ.ent club pictures have been taken, and most of the literary work has been handed in, all that remains to be done is for something more to happen before time for the hook to go to press. It is the purpose of the manageinert to maintain the high literary standard of former publications, and to have a regular oracle after bits of wisdom spread broadcast by various would be bright students. Preliminary financial efforts of a short time ago proved very prolific. and Marcus Brown, business manager, who is launching a second campaign for funds, reports that prospects are rosy fur a glorious finish to the seeond drive.

Rate-The Florida Alligator, $1.0 EDITORIAL U. F.'s Expanding Needs. There has arisen almost unobserved a situation which demands the most thoughtful consideration of everyone truly interested in the continued progress of UF. The splendid growth of U.F. during the past twelve years has been one of the most inspiring of recant educational achieve*ments. It is a miracle whose glamor has been lost to us thru familiarity and whose real import will be seen only in perspective. From an embryo Urnversity, U.F. has attained to no mean development and its progress has only momentarily been halted by the call to anus. Under the circumstances it is then not to be marvelled at that this developent be more or less uneven-that some departments ubould fail to keep pace with the stiftly-moving whole. It is not instances. gests itself brand new nished, so I drdesire yet zation that (I difficult to thi At once there that mythical and splendidly ~ng and so anxi so difcult of For most of us nikof sugGym, furously realit has become merely a sort of tempting mirage. In this connection It is desired however to call attention to another matter of .equa] and perhaps even greater importance-a matter touching the very soul of U.F. and all it stands for. It is not an exaggeration to say that the soul of U.F. is its library. Here are to be found the raw materials of knowledge and here is generated the stimulus which finds expression in the various classrooms. This is the department of all others which we should naturally expect first to feel the strain of growth. And. mot alabe gove"men rand bewildering confusion. Not: only are they unclassified but' ,they are thrown together in heaps in such fashion that in many cases were a single bulle-: tin to be removed the equilibrium of the wJ'ole would be seriouslFy threatened. Exceedmngly umportant statistics m the preparation of which much time and labor have been expended are thus rendered practically inaccessible. One is inevitably forced to the conclusion that either the Government was wrong in going to the expense of publishing these bulletins or we are very wrong in not caring better for them. To be >ure the Congressional Record and other Stale Documents are kept ni a semblance of order but should it b~e necessary for anyone to have access to them he would pirobably find his hands covered with a mixture of fine dust and cobwebs calculated to give an air of venerable respectability to a much older institution. This is literally true-, Why then is it that such a state of affairs has been permitted to arise? In a recent interview the librarian admitted to a representative of the AIIhgator that the situation was bad but stated that on account of the low appropriation for library assistants nothing better was to be expected. He further stated that the current demands of the library could be met only with diffricuty by the force now at his disposal and that to ask that the constantly incoming bulletins be likewise cared for was to ask an impossibility. As further illustrative of the situation it may be noted that the librarian' was recently requested by some students preparing for the intercollegiate debating prelimninarnes that all books and magazines in the library pertaining to the minimum w age be gathered together and placed on reserve. He said that he would be glad to reserve any such books as the students themselves discovered but that he did not feel justified in taking his owil time or that of his assistants from the regular work of the library in order to help find out what books were available. No comment is necessary. This is not written in a spirit of reproach. In all probability no individa can readiy b blamed for the intolerable state of affairs. For intolerable it assuredly is.

IZVS-~L u -4 ter part of December has been especially welcome to all. For it is good to feel that U.F. is more directly aiding our government by giving men more direct training for the grim task ahead. Men are as badly needed for this work as for any other branch otf the service. The army requires 15,,300 radio operators at once and the navy many more. It i s no slacker's job but work for patriots to do. It is a task for men who would fill a real needThe work of the course is yery much like that for telegraflj operators: the purpose is to attain a speed of 20 words per minute, sending and receiving, in the international code of signals used in wireless telegraphy. To do this is mostly a matter of perseverance in practicing after having once learned the alphabet. It is estimated that it takes about 241( hours of practice to attain the required speed. The Engineering department which has charge of the Radio School may well be congratulated on the progress made. Already over 40 men have been enrolled and almost every day more are beig added. Oftese only 8 are students in the University I giving extra time to the Radio1 Course. If funds permit thee scope of the work will undoubtedly be much widened. Meanwhile U. F. is glad to do its bit. JOHN MARSHALL DEBATING John Marshall Debating Society has not had a program this semester; true, until the last two weeks there have been meetings; but these mythical and mythical gatherings have been held under such adverse conditions and with so few members present that nothing was accomplished but empty talk, and this to very little purpose or advantage. The alleged "culpable negligence" of the Debating Council is as nothing in comparison with this siolistic bunch of pedants, who have adopted this "Let George do it," policy of business-. The John Marshall ship of state will certainly land on the rocks of failure, if this indifferent mode of procedure is allowed to continue a few weeks longer.
