We have chosen to concentrate on the world of the future and have in so doing neg- lected the world of today. We have de-empha- sized the allure of pictures somewhat to make way for the less attractive but more comprehensive arti- cles written by students. We do this to preserve for ourselves not the faces but the thoughts of our fellow classmates. The world of tomorrow is a challenge to all the students of today. The world of tomorrow will be the world of opportunity for the senior of today. We wish to preserve our re- actions so that we can help prepare the students of future years for THEIR world of tomorrow. DEAN ROy F. HOWES DEDICATION The staff of the HATTER for ' 44 feels deeply the honor it has in nnakins the dedica- tion of this year ' s book. The theme of the book is sonnewhat unusual . . . not by chance, but because of the influence of one man. Our purpose in choosing the future for a theme is to indicate the trend of thought in the minds of Stetson Students this year. They are thinking of the place they can fill in the world of the future . . . not a place to gain — not a place to accumulate wealth or social prestige, but a place to give — a world in which we must sacrifice for all humanity in order that we may justify our education. These are not original thoughts with us; they are the reflection of the philosophy of this man. It is therefore with great pleasure that we dedicate the book with the " Theme of the future " to the man with the " Thoughts for the future, " Dean Howes. BOARD OF TRUSTEES F. N. K. BAILEY E.

WHITE STUDENT BODY OFFICERS The Stetson Student Body Association officers have been sonnewhat mixed up during the past year. The Vice-President, Miss Jean Douglas, left Stetson during the sum- mer to join the Waves. The President, David Gardner, graduated in December, 1943. This left Miss Margaret Reaves, the Secretary to act as President until an acting chair- man, Mr. Adney, was appointed. DAVID GARDNER JEAN DOUGLAS MARGARET REAVES 6 NINA DYAL JOE ADNEY FRCULTy WILLIAM SIMS ALLEN President THE PRESIDENT ' S MESSAGE The session 1943-1944 has been one of unusual ac- tivity. Students, teachers, administrative officers have so reorsanized their work as to offer to our Government complete and v hole-hearted co-opera- tion in the war effort. The STAR Unit has been a vital part of the University. Much thought has been given to the post-war years and to the new condi- tions they will bring. At the same time the high- est educational standards have been maintained. Morale has been high. I pay tribute to the fine spirit of the students as I extend greetings and good wishes to them and to the Stetson Family everywhere. Sincerely, WILLIAM SIMS ALLEN President. - .fk M £ i:i HARR C.

SENIORS NOT PICTURED IN CAP AND GOWN ERNA FREEBURG DAVID GARDNER KARL KESMODEL Transfer Tulane, 1944 A SENIOR LOOKS AT THE FUTURE To the senior graduating into a world at war is presented a unique view. For one thing, there is the peace to come, carrying with it the hope for a part in world reconstruction. But more important he has studied the theories and prin- ciples of life at a time when the facts of the situation render many of these prin- ciples inapplicable. This compels a view of realism — the recognition that the men and nations of the world have not attached a true civilization — except, perhaps, in the material sense. The history of the world is studded with wars, depressions, periods of economic prosperity — with the rise and fall of states, races and institutions. The historian has presented the picture in terms of personalities of " great " men. Such is not a true record of the humanity. Our present status was reached by the sacrifices of the individual as an indispensable part of the organ of society, and so it is today, that this world of men is more economically, socially, intellectually, and spiritually compatible than ever before. Yet the cruel fact is, we are engaged in another movement of mass murder on an international scale. Moreover there seems very little chance of avoiding another world war in the near future — probably within the next thirty years. The present struggle is the price we pay for the short sighted policies of the older generation in a commercially organized world. We do not resent those mistakes, but they do serve to show us that the next generation — if war demands its life — will be bearing our sins. One inevitably asks, " Is there any way to stop wars. " Those who have faith in God, and the infinite capabilities of man can only answer such a question in the affirmative. With the affairs of nations controlled by the desire to advance selfish interest, the problem is extremely difficult. No one man can present a program suitable to all, but every one can hope and maintain his or her faith. The key word to the solution is " cooperation. " But nations cooperate in their selfish efforts only when the desired objective makes other courses impossible. An attempt to change the very nature of man would probably be futile, or more cor- rectly, at least, a long process over a longer period of time. But one can admit of the selfishness of man and still hope for peace — offer a sort of substitute for war — prepare an effective but peaceful channel through which nations could carry on their struggle for wealth. Construct a system somewhat similar to the court systems of our nation, and the states of the world stand by prepared to enforce this method of reconciling conflicting interests, and to enforce the decision. Following World War II the United States will occupy the position of the worlds most powerful state. Financially, industrially and commercially we are to be the center and heart of the world. With this prestige and power we carry a correllating responsibility. America must throw her massive strength and rugged common sense into the peace effort — realize that peace is a progression, a living growing, functioning thing and that war comes only when peace breaks down. Upon principle the United States must stand ready to fight for peace. Stetson Law School— 1993 ,. , . LAVERGNE MIXON . . President LETA MITCHELL . . Vice-President NATALIE TRUE . . .

Dora A SOPHOMORE LOOKS AT THE FUTURE It cannot be conceived that we will have any normal collese life, for the world just won ' t settle down to a static peace when the Armistice is again signed. There will be chaos and changes, which if not controlled and directed will complete the cycle and will promote a catastrophic war in the next quarter of a century .. .our sons and daughters. Yes, we hope for a Christian peace. Wilson had a dream of a world at peace. Only the scope of his plan was directed toward Europe. Now, there is an altruistic document .. .the Atlantic charter, which needs as a companion a Pacific charter. One of the most potential forces is arising in the East and unless directed into friendly relationships with th e United States, there will come our next year. The economic imperialism that we have practiced will have to be discontinued and the local capital allowed to enter free competition for world markets. This will bring about internal economic development. A sound economic system is one of the primary elements in governmental development. There is another force that will confront us, that is that system of government called by the Russian communism, which in the United States we cannot define. Com- munism is, in its pure state, the people working for the good of the state, hiowever. In Russia, those who think that this system still continues urge it without reserva- tion to be adopted. But, our system has grown up in a capitalistic expansion, while their ' s was at first a cooperative organization. Their economy has so evolved that now there can be rewarded personal initiative. There is one inalienable truth of human society; that all of the world is held together in an economic world union. The existence of this new state has been grow- ing for the past two hundred years, starting with the machine revolution in England and augmented by the many inventions and improved methods of transportation that carry goods into all parts of the inhabited earth. Goods are the greatest travellers, even greater than humans themselves. This state was coming into its advanced, but imperfect stage at the outbreak of the present year. This economic and cultural unification has so speeded up that it has completely left politics behind it. The retarded growth has obstructed all development, and now it must cease if this system is to continue. Culture knows no frontiers. By this I mean not only the fine arts, but also the sciences. The scientist is a natural and confirmed internationalist, looking farther by having the shoulders of others to stand on. In the same way, the economic wholeness of the world is maintained through the faith of men, built up through this relationship of debt and credit. Yes, economic and cultural unification does exist. This unification is growing stronger every year, and must be matched by a political unification. This unification with the help of some general limitations of sovereignty, will progress and function without conflicts of interests that invariably end in war. Our welfare as a people requires that world-wide wars must cease, and that can only be brought about by an enforced peace. This cannot become a reality until there is a general limitation of sovereignty. Until this is done there cannot be an actuality of Mr. Roosevelt ' s uni- versally guaranteed " Freedoms. " We have the task to " nobly save or meanly lose " the peace. hHow can there be more? 1 RUSS . . President B. FLETCHER . . Vice-President C TEDDER . . . Secretary F. JERNIGAN . .

This shortage has been felt greatly in the field of sports. There have not been enough men in the student body to successfully conduct a nnen ' s intramurals.

LOWRY Adviser A JUNIOR LOOKS AT THE FUTURE A junior in college today has a great number of perplexing problems facing him. As he looks ahead of graduation day he can see nothing of which he can be sure. His nation and all other major nations are engaged in mortal combat. She has everything to lose if she is defeated, and if she wins it is not certain what she will gain. Wars have been won before and yet we are now engaged in one of the greatest of all wars. As he shapes the remaining course of his study in college and sets up the goal of his life what part is the war and the coming peace going to play in them? Must he plan for the immediate year or two after college or can he plan for a life in a country at peace? Precedents and principles which he has been taught in his school life up to this time are being exploded so rapidly that he has t rouble keeping track of them. The government of his country is being bombarded from every side. The system of capi- talism and free enterprise is slowly being bombarded to pieces. The socialist theory of Government is still an underdog by a clear margin, and the dictatorships of the world are giving a demonstration of barbarity heretofore unheard of. The forces of revolution are not stopping with theories of government either. Organized Christianity as we see it practiced today is besieged by thinkers from every side demanding that it be reorganized so that it will render better service to humanity. In fact, the Junior of today does not know what to expect of tomorrow ' s world or what to think will the best way to serve it. Some are saying that World War III is a certainty. If the Junior looks at the facts he dares not deny the direction to which they point. Denying the facts would not make a better world or prevent the coming war ' s upsetting the Junior ' s life as a citizen. These facts are evident, but must we accept the next war as a fact and plan to participate without trying to prevent it. To plan for such an understanding or the acquiring of an understanding of life that one can find a worthwhile job to do now, immediately after graduating and on into the period of peace seems a logical thing to do. Looking forward to helping others understand the value of peace and way to achieve it might not be a bad idea. To be informed, to stay informed and to fight for the right of others to do the same could be a strong ambition. To settle down in one ' s own little nook and help make his home, his profession and his life speak so clearly of the values of a peace in which each person regardless of race, creed or wealth had an opportunity to share in the resources of all the world in the giving of a better life demands preparation which the Junior still has an opportunity to get. The picture of a peaceful world challenges one to fight in the face of facts pointing to future wars for a changing of the facts and the achieving of a lasting peace.

We are especially proud of our size these days because, like all men ' s organizations, we have many brothers fighting for our country and its way of life. We are attempting to do what we feel they would wish, namely to keep a nucleus of selected men around which Alpha Chi can be enlarged when they come back.

We have he ard that there will be no |obs for the men that come back, and there will be a sreat depression. We have heard that in twenty-five years there will be another war similar to this one, and that there can be no lasting peace. We have heard of innumerable causes for this war, but the number of us that have tried to find out for ourselves is few. We are going to have a lot to do with the destiny of our nation, and it is going to take planning, cooperation, and work. Perhaps, one of your first questions may be, " HHow can we help in these coming years of trial? " We first have to take an attitude of realism and get away from any pessimistic views we once had. This coming age is going to be one of new inventions, new thoughts, and new ideas. We are the ones to create those new ideas. To do this we have to have free, open minds that can think clearly, free from prejudices. We must stop worrying and fretting about what is going to become of us and begin to think and plan for a way to face these many problems. The ladies in white . . .

HISTORY nnmm Hy 1943-44 — Ancient History— A survey of the events, cus- toms, and peoples of John B, Stetson University during the years 1943 and 44. Designed to acquaint the student with what went on hither, thither, and in the dark comets, too. Offered: any time you want to reminisce a bit. Credit; two full sighs and a happy chuckle. Wellllll— Let ' s see— 1943-44— That was the year that Stet son went forwaaaardl! March-2-3-4 — Hep-2-3-4 — Hep- 2-3-4!! The army at Stetson— the twinkling stars in the heavens above came in a poor second to the STARs that brought a twinkling gleam to many a fair Stetson co-ed ' s eye. Soldiers everywhere — in the big side of the Commons, In Elizabeth Hall, in morning chapel, in Stevens, in the gym, in Conrad, marching around the campus!! The place was lousy with men in uniform: disgusting isn ' t it?? (Who am I kiddin ' ?) Of course there were freshmen, too. All the advisers looked so wise and parental with their little brood gathered around. . (Just a year or so ago, who was doing the lis- tenin? Remember?) Then the speeches, and parties, and meetings of Freshmen week were topped by the Freshman Talent Night with Prof. Giffin m. c.ing. Some of the " new kids " really showed off big. Then came rat caps and courts, rushing, ( ' nough said), and darn it — classes. Professors Garwood, Giffin, SaxI, Johnson, and Cowell were missed in their classrooms: but if Uncle Sammy really needed their advice — well, O. K. He even went so far as to point his finger at McEniry and whisper enticingly " I want YOU!! ' The placque in Elizabeth Hall lobby reminded us con- stantly that plenty more of the Stetson men and women were in there sluggin ' . God bless them; everyone. An what an amazing change in the quad!! The Stetson men could hardly be called a crowd anytime; esp. when compared to the privates, ensigns, louies, sailors, leathernecks, airmen, and what have you, who brought their dates home to the front porch — no less. No dark crowded quad of years past but a front porch as lit as Grand Central Station. The lovely little lassies still got in by ten o ' clock sharp however — to keep them from turning into ugly yellow pumpkins or something, so the Council said. Never will we forget the day Prexy Dave Gardner bounded up on the stage with the announcement that Stetson was to have a Recreation Center. The former Sigma Nu house was to be open every Friday night from 8-1 1 with ping-pong, food, pool. Cards, and (hold your breath) a jookl! This Uncle Sam ' s Army is a mighty useful thing to have around, Came time for Sadie Hawkins ' Day. We ' ll admit the chances for a good time looked few — what with the man- power situation and all. At least 20 wolfesses must have had their eyes on the same man — [probably that strong silent brute, George Davis, " l-don ' -wanna-play " Eichols, who made such a grand mayor, or maybe Thigpen.) The com- mittee, headed up by Edith Lillian Miller as chairman and with Bolton and Hayward working hard, really dug in and came up with a good show — In spite of the fact that some of the BSUcrs gave out with " Life ' s Other Side, " corn at its ripest. Crisco Moore as " Hairless Joe " and B. Bowser as " Lonesome Polecat " succeeded in being utterly re- pulsive as to a lesser degree did practically the whole student body. The army was most cooperative and helpful; if talent was needed they ' d dig it up even if they had to go all the way to Rollins after it. Such G. I. Joes you ' ve never seen — (And neither has General MacArthur — thank goodness). Skenazi was especially helpful (wasn ' t he, Lupfer? But that ' s a personal battle so let ' s not interfere!!) In the athletic events of course the upperclassmen walked away wth the day. (This adv. paid for by members of the upperclass boys football team.) After the day was over we were all spellbound when we found that Bill Fletcher had a face behind that beard. Ambling over to the Little Theatre— Hmmmm, nice place those gym steps, but standing room only — anyhow ambling over to the L. T., we could find Lt. Lykes as the poor be- wildered husband of Vickie — a good play that started the season off with a bang. If I told you that the talented F. Anders had the title role, you ' d probably tell me that ■ ou ' d heard that one before, but she is talented and she was in the lead, so figure it out for yourself. The whole cast was good — Bolton was as disgusting an AWC as you ' ll ever find in your living room. Thanksgiving soon rolled around with the usual flourish. Of course it rolls around every year about the same time (except when Franklin ' s hungry — then you never can tell), and most everyone went home to enjoy their turkey . . . well, anyway, their roast pork. The army had turkey at least. Then back again to run smack into fall exams and the com- forting thought that now we had 3 doses of same per year (Continued on page 92) 1. Now, we are three 2.

Navy ' s gain. under the quarter system. Imagine those poor teachers hav- ing to give and grade exams 3 times a year. Tsk! Tsk! Since they come so often now, v e won ' t waste a lot of time on them — no one else does so why should we now? Graduation in morning chapel and a few new faces around campus. Then 7 busy days of the winter quaitef which in- cluded the Messiah, good as ever, and this year a candle- light carol service for good measure. Both under the direc- tion of Miss Helen Allinger, taking Prof ' s place in the music school while he gave the Stars a hand. Parties and teas as usual in spite of the war and then — Oh happy days — 3 glorious weeks of Christmas vacation. (This space dedicated to your own sweetest Christmas vacation 1943-44.] The occasional rocks that appeared on third finger, left hand, had turned into a land slide by the time this vacation was over. In fact all the girls who came back without one were tactfully told to read the ads. Some of the girls even got greedy and decided to have all or nothing at all — so the misses Whitman, Miller and Rotereau came back Mrs. Everett (Red) Whitman, Mrs. John Lyie Cronkhitc, and Mrs. Edgar Mills. Daffy Coverston started a little game all her own- she collects service men ' s pins and other such tokens of af- fection. As soon as the hectic hellos were shouted after the holi- daze, we were off again — this time for something really big — Religious Focus Week. Bennett and Mixon headed up the Committee of 70, but just ask Prcxy Joe Adney (appointed after Dave ' s graduation) who did all the dirty work. The visiting team arrived and was greeted rather dubiously by some, but after 6 days. Stetson students had done a lot of serious and constructive thinking. Jordan, Broach, Wil- liams, Marsha ' ll, et al — they had really made an impression on this campus. More power to them!! Girls ' inttamurals progressed spiritedly with the Zeta and Alpha Xls running neck and neck all season. The upset of the year came when the pon-frats " got together " and took the basketball tournament hands down. The Stetson men (all 50 of them) had to get most of their exercise playing tennis in the same gym classes with the girls. Gosh, how they hated playing with all those short-clad girls 3 times a week. The Rorum lectures gave the students a chance to be well-informed at least once a week and amazingly enough, many students took advantage of the opportunity. For lighter entertainment the L. T. served up " Tomorrow the World ' and " Vivacious Lady " in quick order. The first was plenty good; Pat Snowden and Tom Mahaffey, the 2 grammar school stars, were the talk of the town and naval Lt. Larson was excellent. In fact, Reese and Anders had their hands full upholding Stetson. In " Vivacious Lady, " Bell and Mims headed a good cast in a poor play. The Star unit departed and the campus seemed de- serted without them. But it was fun to be back in the big side of the Commons and the Recreation Center turned into a Student Union Building open daily and especially for Stetson students. Spring brought senior recitals with Wagner and Whitman heading the list and really making a very good beginning for the season. Russ and his all-girl orchestra played for THE intcrfratornity dance which almost turned out to be a naval ball. But a wonderful time was had by all and the girls found out that an ensign or a Marine Lt. is almost as good as a star any day. Came exams, graduation, and new faces again— Time ' s a-flyin ' . The Glee Club presented Franck ' s Mass in A Minor at Easter time. Really lovely— just don ' t let the title scare you. The theater came through with " Mrs. Moonlight " (Anders and Atkinson) and " The Mer- chant of Venice " (Guess Who?) Both excellent entertain- ment. Bennett and M. Durrance provided more musical en- tertainment and ' twas very good even though we did get the idea that Bennett ' s main interest was a guy named Jason. Elections rolled around with Mims and Hayward doing a lot of fast talking. After the smoke had cleared, we found ourselves all set for another year. And we might as well look to the future because this year is going— there really were some changes made this year, but it was fun; for some- thing new added consider Blackout, Kramer ' s car(?), Treshcr, the Delta Sig monopoly, Lanier, etc. — going — June gradua- tion here again with proud parents, goodbyes. Reaves and her two degrees, caps and gowns, parties, packin, ' n every- thing—all in one mad blur— GONE!! Thus Stetson goes forward. O. K. Students of the future, take it or leave it. And maybe you will think this is a pretty dull course, but those kids of 43-44 thought it was pretty hot stuff. 92 THE S.T. A. R. UNIT LT. COL. JOHN F. SOMERS " Dunns the life of the S. T. A. R. Unit at Stetson University there have been about three thousand young men to pass through here. We believe that their training here will be of great benefit to them and their country . . . not only for the duration of the war, but also for the critical period of reconstruction in the world of the future. " LT. COLONEL SOMERS. " THUS STETSON GOES FORWARD " During the last school year there have been five of the Stetson faculty serving with the S. T. A. R. Unit. They have been supervising the classes for examinations for reclassification and specialized training. t i M HARRY C. GARWOOD HAROLD M. GIFFIN WARREN C. COWELL CARL H.
