A SUGGESTION
The audience which received the performance of the
glee club in th auditorium Monday night was beyond doubt
well pleased with the performance. It is the opinion of
the writer that the glee club ought to b placed on the pro program
gram program in place of some of the Lyceum numbers. Looking
over the audience that night, certainly not over a hundred
students could be found. This is a condition that should
be remedied, if possible.
We do not mean to criticize the managers of the
glee club, as it cannot put on a performance without re receiving
ceiving receiving pay for it. Howverer, some definite sum could be
fixed by agreement between the glee club and the Lyceum
council whereby this performance could be put on in place j
of some of the regular lyceum numbers, the student-body,
and the glee club would both be greatly bnefitted.
The university of Florida is indeed fortunate in hav having
ing having a dirctor of the glee club, Prof. Debruyn who is known
as one of the best qualified directors in the field at the
present time. Every number on the program was well
received, and the entertainers displayed talent and careful
training. If this type of entertainment was sponsored by
the student-body through the Lyceum council, we think it
would result in a mutual benefit to both the glee club and j
.the students.
HIGH SCHOOL TRACK MEET
In the early part of April the university will again be
hosts to high school men from all over the state in the
annual high school track and field meet. A number of
the most promising hign school men will be here for the
occasion, and the importance of getting the university be before
fore before these men in a favorable light cannot be too strongly
emphasized. Within the next four or five years these
sam men will carry the banners of some school in track and
field events- Now is the time to line them up for the uni university
versity university of Florida, and make certain that they will be en enrolled
rolled enrolled here instead of at some rival institution.
The importance of bringing every man to Florida cannot
be too strongly emphasized. Each year good men go out of
the state to our rival institutions at Georgia, Georgia
Tech, Washington and Lee and others. Last year one of the
two most outstanding football men on Ga. Techs champ championship
ionship championship football team was a Florida boy. Also last season
Emorys famous Glee Club had one former student of the
University of Florida on its roster, as well as several men
from this state. The University of Florida cannot become
a great school overnight as long as some of the cream of the
high school athletes, debaters, and leaders in other fields
which are just as important go to other institutions.

FRAT. COMMITTEE
OPPOSED TO THE |
THIRD DEGREE
Conference Condemns Rough
House As Silly and
Dangerous
The attention of the Executive
Committee of the Interfraternity j
Conference has been v called to the
fact that at many colleges and
universities rough-house fraieciLty
initiations are again becoming
matters of common occurrence,
j Tne Executive Cotnmittee believes
I that under the circumstances it
would be wise to call attention
again to the attitude of the In Interfraternity
terfraternity Interfraternity Conference, as set
.out in a resolution of the Con Conference
ference Conference adopted in 1920, which
reads as follows:
'Whereas, it appears from re repoi-ts
poi-ts repoi-ts here that hazing in fratern fraternities
ities fraternities still exists, arising from
.practices in initiations, either in
-real or fake initiations, either be be|
| be| fore, or during the ceremonies,
! and,
Whereas, the liiterfraternity
Conference has at divers times and
by resolution in 1920 Conference,
condemned these practices,
Therefore, be it
Resolved: That it is the sense
of this Conference, that this Con Conference
ference Conference condemn these practices
of rough-house initiations, wheth wheth'
' wheth' incident to ini inier
er inier fake initiations or a part of
| tiation, at any time or in any
| form.
We consider these practices as
silly and dangerous, as opposed to
the dignity and ideals of college
fraternities, and injurious to their
good name, and we recommend
that ell fraternities take step:; tc
eliminate any such practice from
I their own organizations, if same
be indulged in, and further
That a copy of this resolution
be sent to each fraternity in the
j Conference, that a copy be spread
on. the minutes of this Conferem
and a copy be sent to Bantas

Move their packs to the middle

Some to help their money supply;

One of the universal plaints of

No one ever said What is the

It is well to remember ahat these indexes are issued annually, for it may be necessary to look through those for several hours before finding' exactly what is wanted. If some of the later issues have not yet been bound and put on th shelves, they can be secured from the reference librarian. If the later issues of a magazine have not yet been bound, and put on the shelves, they can be secured from the reference librarian. All of the magazines are arranged b reference number rather than in alphabetical order, though all literary magazines are in alphabetical order under their reference number. The reference number can be found by looking up th name (f the magazine in cardex file on the same table a the indexes. Reference numbers are according to subject matter, literary magazines being 051, electrical magazines under another number, etc. Now all university publications master's theses. etc., are being bound and put on the files in addition to the regular magazines. It is interesting to briefly review the methods by which these magazines are preserved. In the first place, after the current issues are taken from the shelves, they are carefully kept until enough accumulate to form a volume. Every publisher furnishes an index of each the volumes of his magazine. With the index, the volume is tied up and sent to the binder. Great care has to be taken that there will not he enough room in the box for the tied up issues to shift, for then they would tear. Binding costs range from $2.00 for a volume of large magazines like Country Life to $1.65 for the smaller ones. If any issue or pages from an issue are missing, that issue must he ordred from the publisher, which. of cours t il a l.Il Qpense. It takes frm'. four to sx weeks beforee the bound volumes are returned. All binding for the university is done in buckrania very durable kind of cloth. In order to assure precision, an exact copy of the legend to be put on the binding is sent to the publisher Different colours are apecified for different magazines. At first all binding was done in black, but 1now colour is used, for it wa, discovered that many more people use a book with a coloured or fancy binding than use one which is black. Some of the magazines on file have been bound since 1860, with others the binding has just beet started. The next article in this series, which will appear in an early issue of the Alligator, will deal wit the cataloging of all books, and the use of the cardex file in finding those wanted RESEARCH WORK CONDUCTED BY GRADUATE MEN' Very Interesting Work Being Done By These Students Of Chemistry Dept.

B. J. Otte is conducting research on the oleoresin of the pine trees, making a qualitative study of the resins from different trees. Pine products such as regin and turpentine are of enormous value to Florida, but as yet little experimentation has been conduct along the line of Mr. Otte's investigation. S. K.
