Pursuing this ideal, we have been forced to depart at times from tradition, and in many respects the Seminole of 1917 bears little resemblance to his older brothers. We have tried to make this book a little bit of the campus that you could carry away with you. If in after years a journey through its pages will bring back the happy days of ’17, it will have accomplished to the fullest its purpose.FLORIDA Winning rather than losing, But winning or losing, FLORIDACbe University  C eSeminole map arcgK ■rtt. ■'A fV?7V A.

ANDERSON, M.A., PII.D.eramoie I THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES AMONG the many questions asked by young men of today arc some of this nature: “ Where can I best fit my- self for life ? ” “ Where can I obtain clear thought, sound judgment, systematic working ideas ? ” These qualities arc absolutely essential to any man who hopes to attain prominence in professional life. He should first have a liberal education, if possible, before entering upon a specified field of life, because this liberal education is the very foundation of all life; it enables him to market his products to the world, to keep himself in close contact and sympathy with the affairs of his fellow men. The College of Arts and Sciences gives this general culture. In this col- O. C. AULT, A.B. lege the individual is trained in the various lines of study which will give him clear thought, sound judgment, and systematic training. Under such men as Dean Anderson, Dr. Farr, Dr. Kcppel, Professor Ault, Dr. Flint, Dr. Crow, and Dr. Sims, students undoubtedly receive such a discipline of their intellects, such an enlargement of their visions, and such an increase in their powers of appreciation of the beautiful and the true, as will enable them to be truly useful citizens and influential members of society. The head of this college. Dean Anderson, is above all a student. Having mastered the classical languages and the modern, and traced the origin of every letter in the alphabet, as far as is possible, he is useful not only as a walking dictionary, but also as an inventor of words. Keen, exact, and reserved. •1917 Elevena emino II. S. DAVIS. P1I.D. he stamps a personality upon all of his students which will not soon be forgotten. If a student in Greek is not accurate when he has finished a course under I)r. Anderson, there is no hope, and who can say that accuracy is not a quality to be desired for any line of work ? Dr. James M. Farr, commonly known among the boys as “Jimmy", is a lover of fun, and he gets all the fun he wants. Each year the registrar sends him scores of freshmen, and the doctor makes as much fun as he wants of this material. However. “Jimmy” is fond of mixing with the boys, even using their campus language at times, and becoming one of them himself again. It has been said that he makes a course for students just as hard, and yet as fair, as one possibly could. In other words he teaches a young man how to work. But the return for labor done for Dr. Farr is a passport which, if rightly used, will enable a person to enter the courts of kings, to partake of the best fruits this world can offer. Dr. Flint is the cool. calm, rapid worker who teaches the young man how to expedite business. He is never in a hurry; wise men never are. One speech a year by him is enough to keep the boys in good health the whole nine months. Any problem related to chemistry and science can be easily solved by this man, who has devoted his life to the e lines of work. From the courses under Dr. Flint the student receives training which prepares him for professional work. Of the efficient, business-like professors, none stands out more prominently than Dr. Crow, the master of modern languages. Not a mistake escapes his eagle eye in the class- J. M. KARR. A.M., 1 11.1) Twelvee eramo room. His pupils receive extraordinary discipline in the faculties of the memory, as he is quite exact, but the greatest benefit to be derived from his courses is the knowledge of the language being studied. The College of Arts and Sciences teaches the student above all to think for himself. It is for the most part under such men as Dr. Kcp| cl, who has never been given a fair mathematical problem which he could not solve; Professor Ault, the progressive thinker, and Dr. Sims, the profound student of men and modern political conditions, that the young man acquires this self-reliance. These men teach a student that men, no matter how highly the world may honor them, arc all mere human beings, very susceptible to mistakes. One should learn to form independent judgments and to stand by them. N. L. SIMS. A.M., PII.D. e K. It. FLINT. PII.D If a young man has a degree from the College of Arts and Sciences is he not, then, efficiently prepared to fight life's battles ? People may talk of following exclusively special lines of work, but after all it is the general culture and the liberal education, which count most in present-day affairs. Are not accuracy, broad vision, and an ability to think independently the greatest benefits of a college career ? Thirteen,1 emmoie COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE FACULTY P. H. ROLFS, M.S. P. H. Rolfs. US.

Starting off with the largest enrollment in its history, ami easily the largest of the colleges of the University, it set itself resolutely to the task of making some new history every week. Even a lawyer will admit that it succeeded. Courses are offered in the Agricultural College for all sorts of students. First, there is the four-year course, for the regularly enrolled college students. Separate curricula are offered for students specializing in Agronomy, Horticulture. Animal Husbandry, and Chemistry, and for those who wish general work in agriculture. A special group has lately been arranged for agricultural teachers. Short courses of various kinds arc offered for students who. through lack of time or preparation, do not wish to take the full course of four years. The Middle Course of two years emphasizes the practical, technical training, though giving also some scientific work. Its graduates arc given the title Graduate in Farming. The one-year and four-month courses require for entrance only a working knowledge of the common school branches. The work is all practical. A ten-day course is offered in the winter for farmers, and is always well attended. A correspondence course is also conducted by the College. The faculty for the College of Agriculture includes, beside the members of other faculties of the University who give instruction in their departments to agricultural tudents, six men devoting all of their time to Agricultural W.

The agricultural students, through the Agricultural Club, led the way this year in many student activities. They starlet! the University Carnival, which, with the enthusiastic co-op-erution of the other colleges, was carried through as one of the most successful student activities of the year. They have lent their support and their abundant “ pep " to every worthy undertaking of the year, and the Agricultural Club is recognized as the livest organization on the campus (at least, according to agricultural students).

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING THE College of Engineering, the oldest of the five colleges of the University of Florida, presents to those having an inclination toward technical pursuits, a superb opportunity to prepare themselves for the practice of engineering. Engineering Hall, constructed along the same architectural lines as the other buildings on the campus, heated, lighted, and equipped in the most modern and approved manner, is the immediate home of the college. Here are found all the facilities essential to provide adequately for the needs of students in engineering. Three large, well lighted drafting rooms, supplied with desks and drawing tables, amply provide for large classes in drafting and plotting work. A dynamo laboratory. II. C. KEPPEL, A.B., PH.D. one of the most complete and up-to-date to be found in any school, is provided for students in electrical engineering; while a machine shop, a steam laboratory, and a materials laboratory meet the demands of students in other engineering courses. A separate brick building is used for the wood shops. Here are found sufficient lathes, tools, benches and other equipment to supply the large classes in wood shop and pattern-making work. Annexed to this structure are the forge and foundry shops. The instrumental equipment of the civil engineering department deserves especial mention, and the number of instruments of the same kind is such as to allow small individual units in surveying and mapping classes, thus permitting better instruction in the actual handling of instruments. This department has also a cement Nineteen ieS erainole testing ami materials laboratory, provided with testing machines for determining breaking stresses of various substances. The machine shops, recently completed, are fitted with everything necessary for thorough instruction in work of a mechanical nature. An examination of all these departments will readily convince one that in capacity and equipment, the Engineering College can provide for classes several times as large as those now enrolled. The faculty of the College of Engineering is composed of men who hold degrees from the best colleges of this country, and from European institutions. They have all had many years of practical experience in the practice of engineering, and arc especially able in the teaching of their various subjects. Also since many of the courses contained in the curriculum arc taught in other colleges A. J. STRONG of the University, the engineering student comes under the direction of other able instructors, and has the opportunity of mingling with those pursuing other courses, thereby adding a broadening influence to his college life. Due to lack of advertising facilities, an aid so much employed by most colleges, many young men of our state are ignorant of the remarkable opportunities offered by their own home institution, and enroll elsewhere for a technical training. We sincerely trust that wc may convey to these students an idea of our equipment and courses, which wc arc confident will amply meet their needs. K Twenty R. W.

It is not even conducted for the purpose of providing weekly salary checks for its professors. It is conducted in the interest of the people of the State of F lorida. Not a step is taken, however beneficial it might be to the individual student, unless it is beneficial also to the people of the State. No doubt the opportunity to secure a cheap and easy degree, and consequently admission to the bar would, in a sense, prove beneficial to many individuals, but it would be highly prejudicial to the state, supplied w ith cheap and Accordingly, the law school in Septem-juniors, but freshmen, is now a three year a year longer than their the same degree, but tained it they will take graduates of the best country.

Its library is provided with complete sets of all the important reports, digests, and texts. Its practice court room is the equal of many of the best court rooms of the stale, and has seen, it may be said, as many hard-fought cases. Its faculty is made up of men of known standing and ability. Dean Harry R. Trusler, who conducts the work in F quity Pleading and Procedure, has had wide experience in the practice and teaching of the profession. Professor C. W. Crandall, a graduate of Michigan, is in charge of the work in Common I-aw Pleading and Procedure; and Dr. W. L. Summers, a graduate of Y'ale, of the courses in Criminal Law and Pleading. Two more professors are to l e elected for the next session. In addition law students arc allowed to elect work in other departments of the University. Special lecturers, including such men as Chief Justice Jefferson B. Brown, of the Supreme Court of Florida; Justices R. F. Taylor, R. S. Cockrell, W. 11. Ellis, Tlios. M. Shackleford, and James B. Whitfield, of that court; 3937 T wcnly-threcemmole ,1 Hon. John L. Neely, U. S. District Attorney, and many other distinguished barristers, also aid in the instruction of the students. But a discussion of the College of Law would not be complete without some mention of the record of its students in campus life. Previous to the present year it was the boast of the law student that he had never failed to win an intercollegiate contest within the University. Although this record has been broken in 1917, law students have still in many ways led the way. The College of Law was given the prize for the best float in the parade of the University Carnival. Of the four intercollegiate debaters selected, three were law students. The military company formed this spring of men not required to drill had its origin in the I-aw College. And, last but not least, all the class officers of the combined Junior Classes were, by some strange coincidence, students in the College of Law. W. L. SUMMERS.

Graduates of the Teachers College and Normal School now explore every town and village of the state, sending to the University the high school graduates to he green-capped Freshmen—the kind whose fame has sent remorse into the hearts of the other classes this year. Such is the inevitable result of attending the Teachers College where bald-headed, long-bearded, indescribably wise men sit and pass out knowledge of hyper-psychological import.

Soon after leaving the “U" he lands a $1,000 position, marries, and gets a raise. The most famous school men of our state—superintendents, principals and teachers— are sons of the Teachers College and in every nook and dell between the Perdido river, St. Marys river, and the Florida Straits live men and women, boys and girls, who arc direct descendants, intellectually, of our Faculty, and finished products of our laboratories.

Its funds arc received from the Federal government, and it must comply with the rules of the Department of Agriculture, but it cooperates, to a great degree, with the College of Agriculture of the University. The Director of the Experiment Station is the Dean of the Agricultural College. The station staff assists in college instruction, and the college faculty assists in research work. On the University campus and in the community of which it is a part, the Experiment Station is usually considered a relatively unimportant part of the University.

The results of these investigations arc published in the form of bulletins, press bulletins, and annual reports. One hundred and thirty-four bulletins, two hundred and sixty-four press bulletins, and twenty-six annual reports have already appeared. These publications arc all distributed free on request. Through the Division of University Extension the University reaches thousands of citizens who otherwise would never receive its help. Though cooperative demonstration work has been carried on for many years, it was not until 1914. with the passage of the Smith-Lover bill that it assumed its present proportions. Through the Smith-Lever bill the state received in 1914 $10,000 annually and the additional sum of $11,898, if this amount is also appropriated by the state. The latter amount was to be increased yearly by $5,408 until the sum of $44,345 has been reached. C. K.

SWANSON BUCKMAN HALL Thirty-foureminole THE HALLS THOMAS Hall and its twin, Buckman, were completed in 1900, and were first used for the school year of 1906-1907. They are red brick buildings, three stories high, built in five and six sections respectively. Fireproof walls separate the sections, thus doing away with the dangers, in case of fire, of long corridors and inaccessible stairways. Bathrooms, equipped with needle point showers, arc located on every lloor of each section. The suites consist of one, two, or three rooms. Plenty of closet room is afforded. Often as many as eight large windows light the rooms; and electric light is furnished until midnight, after which hour the eager student must take his chances on “ llawk-shaw,” the night watchman, and the twenty-five cents fine imposed for using the “juice” after hours. (A hint—buy window shades.) Thomas Hall originally housed the University to a great extent. The offices of the administration, mess hall, infirmary, everything but the gymnasium and the athletic field—were contained in Thomas Hall. Buckman Hall accommodated the majority of the students. MISS MARY MC ROBBIE THOMAS IIALL Thirty-five eS erainole Now, however. Thomas is entirely given over to sleeping-rooms, or to rooms intended for that purpose, with the exception of the third floor of A section, where Miss Mary McRobbic holds sway and ministers to the dead and wounded after football games and Mess Hall meals. Miss McRob-bie's apartment is on this floor, as is also the Infirmary, a large, sunshiny, airy place equipped with iron beds and kept up in true hospital style by the efficient nurse. Buckman has one section less than Thomas. In E section, on the third floor. Mrs. Swanson and Mrs. Peeler have their rooms. From here they begin early—only too early!—in the mornings, their daily clean-up. roust-out crusade on the sleeping dormitories: leading with pitiless regularity their corps of sweepers: listening with hearts which are (necessarily! as stone to drowsy complaints, yet withal saving the boys a lot of mental anguish concerning the whereabouts of collar-buttons, neckties, poker decks, and so on. In 1) section the unofficial post office of the University is located. Paul Weimer and Otto Maneckc bring the students mail out to the campus twice a day, call out MRS. MARGARET I’KELER UNIVERSITY COMMONS Thirty-sixeoeramo the letters in front of the section and then place the unclaimed few in lettered boxes on the second floor. For a study in human expressions, or in the science of human behavior, go to mail-call and watch the fellows. “Shattered love affair" is written all over one man's face; “Check didn't come." says another chap, altho he utters not a word. The shrug of another’s shoulders fairly shouts “ I wonder who’s kissing her now ? ” Ivy is beginning to creep over the walls of the buildings, and is giving them a look of age and dignity—one might call it a “ pedigreed ” look. In time Thomas will be to our campus what Witherspoon is to Princeton’s—a sort of benevolent grand-daddy to future Gator generations. MESS HALL Mess Hall! Where the hash is handed around. Where the “Zip” flows like wine. The home of the mistaken steak, the un-panned pancakes, and the ungritful grit. Mess Hall! What’s in a name? Gentle reader, EVERYTHING. Mess Hall, the institution, was established with the University. Mess Hall, the building, was erected in 1911. We will deal with the building. It is a more pleasant subject. Mess Hall is situated at a safe distance south of the dormitories and equidistant from them. The building is, like all the others, of red brick. It is one story high and consists of a spacious, well-lighted dining hall and large kitchens in the rear. Meals are served at 6:30 A. M., 12:45 and 6:00 P. M. The fowl is—well, we’re still alive, anyhow. Many students pay part of their college expenses by serving in Mess Hall. “ Rowdy Bill ’’ Wilkinson and “ Gumshoe ” Hamm, the chief dignitaries and mainstays of the place, preside from their high desk near the east door, announcing in sonorous and impressive tones anything you’ll give them to announce, and “sticking ” the frisky ones demerits for playfully throwing biscuits around. We hope to see Mess Hall some day attain the dignity of the name “ Commons.’’ If a name means anything, one ought to be as suitable as the other. ■1917 Thirty-sewnThirty-eightTHE HONOR SYSTEM IT is an astonishing fact to outsiders that the University of Florida has established a permanent honor system so early in its youth. With the beginning of the 1916-’17 term the students and faculty gave their sanction to a very simple code of laws previously drawn up by students in good standing, anxious to better conditions. The system itself is unique and distinctly of “ Florida Each man is on his honor not only to keep his own name immune, but also to report each breach of truth or honor to an executive committee composed of five members, the president of the student body, as chairman, and one member from each class. This committee shall try all cases just as a court docs, and of course has authority to expel a student who has been convicted. No student can be convicted, however, except upon the witness of two other students as regards his breach. An appeal may be made to the faculty from the decision of the student committee. Any amendment to the honor code requires a two-thirds vote of the student body, and a notice of the proposed amendment must be served upon the faculty previous to its adoption. The manner in which the students have not only respected their system but also shown great pride in carrying it into actual effect is especially gratifying to everyone. Members of the faculty feel at liberty to leave their rooms at any time, whether an examination or just a quiz is on. The professors do not even have to require a pledge. On the other hand the students feel themselves in possession of the quality of true manhood, which fairness and openmindedness alone can give. The campus and classrooms are free from watchful restriction. I-ct it be known that no man devoid of honor could stay on the University of Florida campus, first, because he would be ill at ease himself, and second, because his fellows would soon find him out. It is a fact witnessed by many students that their honor system has, from the time it was so favorably received and adopted, been a successful institution, praised and prized alike by its upholders and originators. Truth and true education go hand in hand. The members of the Student Executive Committee are: P. F. Collins. Chairman; Norris McElya, Senior representative; J. M. Sparkman. Junior representative; W. E. Stone, Sophomore representative; T. D. Williams, Freshman representative.FortyChe Classes iit Forty-oneemm ole 2 HERBERT LAWRENCE DOZIER Columbia. S. C.

Hut this is a false viewpoint; each branch of the system should be judged by the results obtained, not by the number who obtain those results. Mewed according to this true standard, the Graduate School is doing a noteworthy service in the University, as one will admit who considers the ability and high standards of its faculty and who secs the character and attainments of its students. Not only in intellectual affairs nor in pursuits followed after leaving college do they make their marks: the most relevant point to be staled in this book in favor of the graduate students is that, while numerically few, they take an active part in school activities, social, moral, and athletic, and thus make a strong impress in our campus life. The University has not been, nor is it likely soon to be, in a position to lay great stress on graduate work. With the men who apply for work in this school it is a case of “ the early bird ”, because only a small number can be accommodated. Nothing but Master’s degrees can he offered. It is to be added that these degrees arc the rewards of much diligence, original research and independent thinking, and we may well take off our hats to the ones of our number who have their dissertations accepted by the Committee on Graduate Work.

To begin with, back in Scptemlicr, 1913, we came here as Freshmen, perhaps the greenest bunch ever entering. Our number was 87 that year ami the way we took down the Sophomore flag was a joy. Our second year about 30 men returned, but we were all here, and the rats failed for the fir t time to take the flag from the Sophs. IjisI year we were joined by the Junior Lawyers, increasing the size of the class to about 70. That year we l cgan to get recognition from different places and people, and our importance swelled within our heads till they almost burst. At the end of the year we adopted a complicated set of resolutions and this year we have had one Helluva" time carrying them out. In September, 1916, we returned for the last round—and the word round is very fit, we think. A year of activities anti action never before witnessed on the campus has been this our last year. At the time of writing this it is hard to know whether to conclude with graduation of the class or not—the situation seems so undecided anti doubtful throughout. But to continue with the history of the class: In athletics we have done our share, putting 25 men on the varsity football squads: 20 on the baseball; 10 on basketball; and practically half of track, during our stay in school. In other honors we have ranked along with the highest, and probably excelled in some lines: Military places, school and society positions; athletic record, and all go to show that this, the class of 17, is as it claims, not the l»e t but as good as any class ever turned out of the University of Florida.Sitxy-seven eS eminole (£§ 5 J.

For instance in the Flag Rush each year, we were handicapped by uneven chances and necessarily failed to recover or to hold the flag, but when it came to the Tug-of-War, with equal chances, we were right there and. had it not been for the judges, would have been pulling the opposing team till now. Throughout these years many of the athletic stars have come from our class. Such men as Fuller. Sparkman, Goldsby, Stockton and ilkinson arc indispensable lo the Varsity football squad. Pooser. Wood and Seymour have held up the honor of the class in baseball, and we have also had prominent representatives in basketball and track. There is nothing which has come up during our three years here, for the l eUer-ment of the school that has not received the whole-hearted support of the class. In each case, however, we would have a clear discussion of the proposed matter at class meeting and then present our views. The acquisition this year of about 45 Junior lawyers to our meagre number of about 15, is a fact to feel justly proud of. and it did not take them long to show us that thev. loo. had the old “ pep " which alone can make a class a successful organization. Thcv have given valuable advice in a number of questions which have come up before the class, and take as much interest in every affair as if they had entered with the rest of us in 14. As the year closes, completing three-fourths of the journey which we set out upon, we think that it must have l een a short road, but Iwas not that, only the environment and the close ties by which the members of tbe class arc held that makes it seem so short. Indeed there arc only a few months before we shall return as Seniors and then----? 19 T7 Seventy-eightSeventy-nineEighiy-otweminole SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY THK history of the cl«M of 19 is necessarily short, hut it is of the character to make every member justly proud. In September. 1915. our verdant band made its debut on the I . of F. campus. After purchasing our share of campus tickets, radiator keys, and other such articles, we settled down to real work. Karly in our career we met and elected officers for the year, the honored men being Ham Dowling, president; L S. Cray, vice-president, and J. A. Mixton. secretary. The class of '19. now organized, began to show the other classes of what stuff it was made. The first demonstration was given when it took the class of ’18 and its precious flag into camp in the annual Sophomore-Fresh man Flag Rush. Its football team then piled up a big score against that of the hated Sophomores, and. soon after, held the mighty Senior eleven to the score of 3-0 in the final game. Then, to finish the year's good record, a Sophomore won the medal in the Sophomore-Fresh man Oratorical Contest. In September, 1916. the class of “19 again showed its mettle when 75 of its members returned to resume their studies. We realized, of course, that it was our solemn duty to show the Freshmen a good time, and this we did to the best of our ability until Dr. Murphree informed us, one morning in chapel, that wc had done remarkably well, and that he would therefore excuse us from further duties along this line. Or—???? Then, after electing Paul Raker, president. Bob Harris, vice-president. and H. C. Redstone, secretary, we again took up our victorious march, holding the Freshmen from the Old Pine Tree upon which is tacked every year the Sophomores sacred banner. In the annual Sophomore-Freshman Football Game we surprised the whole student body by holding the fast “ Rat " aggregation to one touchdown. Not only have we had good inter-class athletes, but many Varsity men have come from our ranks. In football. Ham Dowling, the DcYane boys, Paul Baker, ami G. P. Wood; in baseball, Oberrv, Williams, Whitfield, Carrulhers, and McCallum; in basketball, Harris, Obcrry, Adams, and Wood; and in wrestling. Hayman. show the standard of the Sophomore class. Having traveled the straight and narrow path this far. let us try to continue our journey until June. 1919. and may we all then receive well-deserved diplomas. 1917Eighty-threeeoerainole H • FIIKSIIMKN Eighty-fourEighty-fiveEighty-sixemino FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY STRANGE conditions surrounded the 115 Freshmen who became students at this scat of learning in the fall of 1916. At first their outlook, to say the least, was blue, but as they gradually adapted themselves to new conditions, the blue outlook became bright, light shone through chaos, and a love for “ Florida sprung up in their hearts. Before them was a great hill, the Hill of Education, which they were to ascend partly this year. Three roads. Physique Street. Mental Avenue, and Moral Way, led up this hill. Progress up Physique Street is best made by demonstrated athletic ability. Some attainment has been made along this line. Without real men like Wilson, the class-president. Branch. Brown, and Rood on the Varsity football team, would not Coach McCoy have been in trouble? In the series of games played for the class championship in football the Freshmen won every time they played; that is to say, they won the championship. Though the painted warriors of the Flag Rush failed to capture the flag, they managed to output I their opponents in the annual tug-of-war, staged immediately after the Flag Rush. Cooper and Duncan represented the class most creditably on the Varsity basketball squad, while it is needless to mention the good work done by Blankcnburg and others on the diamond. So far has the class gone up Physique Street. Progress up Mental Avenue is murked by individual attainment in classes, and by debating ability. Some bright minds have already shown their qualit), but the large majority arc only ordinary as yet. The reason is obvious. The class is yet young. But it has the ambition and the will, and a little later on it will surely prove deserving of praise for mental accomplishments. Mudge. Clarkson, and Branch do well in debating, as do many others. Moral Way, from which the other two roads branch, has been ascended so far with little difficulty. While there arc some members who lack the very finest traits of great men. on the other hand, there are those who have these traits, and who will stand for the right like Gibraltar. The Honor System has been unwaveringly supported by the class, not to mention the help afforded the V. M. C. A. I.et the Freshman be called on for genuine manhood. The support given the miscellaneous campus activities, such as The Alligator. the band, the various clubs, etc., by the class needs no mention. The fact that the class is extremely young, that it is in its very infancy, must be kept in mind. If it has done so well in infancy, will it not do as well or better in later years? The world of college life and opportunity in their Alma Mater lies before the Freshmen. They have merely begun to climb the Hill of Education.

McCoy:—Coach McCoy has been with us now for three yeans, during which lime we luive had countie opportunities to judge hi worth. His choice of material is infallible, ami under his able direction Florida has become a factor in the S. I. A. A. He has built up an organization which each year proves a greater stumbling block for the crack teams of Auburn and Georgia Tech, whose football prowess is widely recognized, and which hopes soon to lie a contender for the southern championship. Coach McCoy inspires hi men with the real object of athletic manliness. He stand for the Ik sI qualities in college men and insists upon their complete acceptance of hi orders. The member of the ‘Gator eleven agree that Coach i a tireless taskmaster, but all admit that lie is “ some coach." High Wicker:- Wicker has served the University as baseball coach for the past two years. Before entering he gained reputation by his ball- playing ability with different minor league teams of the South, and now as coach of the varsity he has brought our baseball team to a new level. Baseball, always a popular sport, is of course Coach Wicker's first accomplishment, but to the student body he is further known a standing for clean athletics and wholesome ideals. This year Coach " Wick" had some very superior material, and baseball prospects, precluding war possibilities, are very bright for next year. Z. J. Stanley:- -Coach Stanley, coaching football. basketliall and track, has been here for two years. His ability in rounding out men in these line is unquestionable, for the haskellMlI season lias proved letter than in former years, while the intcr-clas track meets, inaugurated last year, have been entirely popular and successful. Much is due him for the success uf the scrub football team, which time after time harried the heavy varsity, giving them hard fought scrimmages often disastrous to the latter. In their own schedule. Coach Stanley i responsible for the training that brought them many victories. Besides being an athlete. Coach Stunlcy i a diligent student and a man of superior moral character, and he i a leader of men in campus life as well as on the athletic field. 1917 Ninety-twoNinety-threeemmole ,1 THE FOOTBALL SEASON THE football Mason of 1916 has come and gone. ictorv cannot be to all nor is it always to the brave and loyal, lint we fought a go»nl fight, and that can be our satisfaction. On an obi tablet over one of the Princeton gales is the inscription, “We ask you not who won, but how well you played the game”. The men of Florida played the game well. -No matter what the odds, they played doggedly and undauntedly. Defeat upon defeat did not discourage them, but the honor and glory for their Alma Mater in victory bade them fight on more tenaciously. The loyalty and spirit of the team were never broken. Every player sacrificed personal desires for the good of all. All stow! shoulder to shoulder and responded with the l est they had. W hile victory never smiled upon them, they have the admiration and satisfaction of a loyal student body, a student body that supported them through all the trials and troubles of defeat. And every man of Florida is proud that his Alma Mater can be classed with the peers of football in both the Southern and W estern colleges.

Without the scrub football teams. Florida could never have developed the Varsities that have made this institution famous, ami consequently the I niversity's standing in athletics of all branches ami the relations now existing between Florida and the other teams of the South and W est could nexer have existed except for the individual services of these men. They have engaged in the hardest kind of xvork without the slightest recoin-|KMise. save the gratification of seeing Florida succeed. It is true that a fexv of these men have been rewarded by developing into Varsity men, but for the great majority of the scrubs this has been impossible, ami their sole reward lias been the physical benefit and the happiness coming from a strife for a common good. This year the scrub team was superior to any of former years, and despite the fact that depressed conditions in the financial world took axvax the pleasure of an occasional game with some prep school, the men came out to the last day ami gave their services to the development of the Varsity. In the first arsity-Scrub game the Scrubs xvcrc especially strong and by a lluke defeated the Varsity 6 0. And in the game with Gainesville High School they followed their custom by being successful. The following loyal athletes composed the Scrub team this season: Ball Brown I layman llamon Lei lestc Lovell Marston McElya Bobinson. W. E. Bobinson, T. It. Swanson Smoke Yongue el roucr W'ulhrich Mcluiine Miles One hundred and threeOne hundred and fourOne hundred and five eS e min ole THE BASEBALL SEASON WITH the best all-round baseball (earn that ever represented the University we arc sorry to relate that we had fewer games than ever before, and not one of them was with an S. I. A. A. team. This was due to some misunderstanding in arranging the schedule and to the fact that some of the games were cancelled. However the matter has been so arranged that this difficulty will never arise again. The team is not made up of several individual stars but of twelve men who. with the coach, have worked incessantly until everyone is well acquainted with the game and team work near to perfect has developed. The batting average as well as the fielding average of the team as a whole is far above what it ever was before. All have labored for the team and for the school, not for themselves. As a result we won eight of the eleven games played. On March 14 we played the Jux Olympics in Gainesville, winning easily. Caruthers was in the box and going good, while the team hit and fielded well behind him. Next the Cators journeyed to Like City, taking Columbia into camp the first day 4-1. Farrior’s hitting ami Rood’s fielding featured. Caruthers pitched. The following day honors were divided. Rosenbusch in the lir t game pitched good ball but. through his usual left-handed luck, lost 4-0. McCallum worked in the box the last game and with the help of wonderful hitting by the whole team won 7-2. The week beginning March 26th was a full one for seven games were played in five days. The first series was in DeFuniak with Palmer College. With “ Rosie " in his usual form, and hard luck on his trail, they won 5-1. The second game was a hitting bee, Florida tvinning 9-6. Wood secured four hits in as many trips to the plate while Blankcnburg tripled with three on. Caruthers was effective for four innings, after which they hit him freely. The last of the scries was the most exciting. Palmer nosing out in the seventh 4-3. Bad base running probably lost for us. McCallum pitched good ball. The next day was spent in Tallahassee where Florida defeated a picked town team 7-2, Rosenbusch being in good form with only one error behind him. The team batted a thousand at the College. Upon their return home the Gators took three straight from Columbia. Wilson, pitching for Florida, had them at his mere) during the opening contest, while he also got three hits. Score 3 0. The next day Caruthers and Rosenbusch working in turn kept Columbia guessing. The entire team played jam-up ball throughout. Scores 13-2 and 7-1. J. I .

John was also a star at the bat, for he hit in the pinches. Reuben E. Blankknburc Center Field " Hit ’em all to center." for “ Blank" is taking care of that garden. This boy is fast and the way lie gets there in the field is pleasing to the eye. Nor is this his only good quality, for lie hits well and is a good base runner. 19 7 Semin ole One hundred and nine emmoie ,1 Alonzo C.

They arc the men who put in work and get little in return. This year Coach icker was exceptionally fortunate in having so strong a scrub team, with which to train the Varsity squad. I ndcr the able direction of Assistant Coach Stanley the Scrubs developed into a formidable foe for the Varsity and were strong enough to trim all the teams in the near vicinity. It is believed that the Scrubs have developed some Varsity batteries for next year who, with the old pitchers, should give us the best battery squad in history.

Due to the uncertainty of financial Mipport the tentative ha kelhall schedule was arranged late. The irginia and Tennessee trip' had to he abandoned on account of the small appropriation allotted to basketball. This disappointment left a large hole in the schedule and soon after the Imps. Columbia College. St. Augustine and Keewatin cancelled on account of financial troubles of their own. Nevertheless we feel that the basketball season has been of value to Florida, for Coach Stanley, who is the best basketball coach that ever camped in Florida, has developed a wonderful amount of material and taught a large squad of men the fine points of basketball. Harris, Robles. Henderson and Sparkman were one hundred per cent better this year than ever before and among the new material developed is Perrin Cooper, who ranks among the best guards in the State, despite his handicap in weight; F.lar bee. who is also an excellent guard, and G. P. Wood, who is expected to develop into one of the best running guards in the South. Duncan, Swanson, Brown. W. McElya. and Clyatt are men to he considered for the Vanity squad next year. The loyalty of true Gators was shown by the members of the squad, who faithfully attended practice in spite of the long periods between games, with the betterment of next season's team their chief aim.

The University has only had eleven years to take the place she now has in athletics. Florida began her onward march in 1906 and was a match for the older institutions in this State. W ithin a few years the other colleges of the State and some of the schools of our sister states were putting forth every effort in order to make a showing in their contests with Florida. Columbia College soon made her last stand in football and the following year Stetson followed suit by assembling her former gladiators, including “The Mighty lied Schncdcgar." for one great game with Florida, but a crushing defeat took their last aspirations away. The influential men in athletics at the University and the entire student body, realizing that might must he founded on right, have bent every efTort to foster clean and honest amateur athletics in the State and especially at the University. This desire was manifested bv Florida being the first school in the State to affiliate with the S. I. A. A. From this time Florida has advanced by leaps and bounds until this year in football Florida played the heaviest schedule in the South and met the strongest teams in the S. I. A. A., as well as the University of Indiana, which was one of the best teams in the West and was recognized as a formidable factor by every team. While football was the chief game in the early days and still is. Florida has been gradually broadening the scope of her athletics to include all forms of inter-collegiate sports possible in this climate. Today Florida is without competition in any branch of athletics in the State, and the licst teams in our Southland have long refused to play practice games with Florida. Next year Florida stands prepared to meet all S. I. A. A. teams in football, baseball, basketball, track, wrestling and tennis, and in a few years a crew will no doubt be one of the inter-collegiate teams of the t niversity. With the start Florida has in inter-collegiate athletics, the increase in attendance at the I Diversity and the ever-increasing interest in athletics throughout the high schools of the Stale, the University is bound to be a school attractive to athletes and one worthy of prominence throughout the United States. 917' One hum!red and seventeenu.Ktp Xi.i pun pjjpuntj 9UQ aiouimagai j $ UGlTRftGK ZS V XD 5 V ;c '' f ■vi'S V V;c«'Vw v«VV'45'y V -CCS TW () years ago with only one first class track man in the University Coach McCoy began the stimulation of track interest and the development of a track team worthy of recognition. With small hopes of getting recognition in a meet that year Coach McCoy, encouraged by work of Wilkinson and realizing that excellent undeveloped track material lay dormant in the University, began the daily-training of the small squad of men who aspired to become the equals of “ Rowdy Hill ". McCoy took a team to the State Inter-Collegiate meet at the Gasparilla Carnival in Tampa ami lost the meet by only one point. Wilkinson set a new record of forty-nine and three-fifths for the quarter. With this showing track interest boomed at the University and the cross-country team which was sent to the free-for-all in Jacksonville later in the spring made a good showing while Wilkinson ran five miles in twenty-eight minutes and seventeen seconds. Wilkinson, who was now in the prime of condition, was sent to the S. I. A. A. meet where lie led the quarter for three hundred yards when a faulty track turned his right ankle and allowed three men to finish a few feet ahead of him. This year the interest in track was even greater. Thirty-five men turned out. Keen competition forced hard work and Florida was ready to clean up with the State meet when news came that it had been called off. With no other meet in sight the work was abandoned by all except the cross-country team which kept in trim for the free-for-all in Jacksonville on March 10th. On February 3rd. at Rose Field in South Jacksonville, Wilkinson took a ten-mile trophy and on the 7th following won first place in a five-mile race on the same field. On March 10th. the cross-country team, composed of Wilkinson, W. W. Gunn. Hay man. Vaneev, Hratley. Miles and I jcc entered the cross-country run in Jacksonville and took seven out of the eight prizes offered, including the team trophy. Wilkinson won first place without ever losing the lead, finishing in twenty-seven minutes and one second. Next year Florida will have a track team capable of successfully competing with all Southern amateurs, and as the interest is increasing rapidly in high school track in the State, the source from which the University draws such athletes will be large enough to provide a w inning track team every year. Track is the one athletic activity where “a man's a man for all that ”. He may l»e thick, long, short, or lean, but whether lie weigh ninety-five or two hundred he has a fair chance to be a first-class track man and represent his college in one of the greatest of sports. The price is only hard work and determination. The track squad is expected to be fifty strong next year. 1W One hundred and nineteenOne hundred and twentyOle Semin ole TENNIS ha long been a minor sport in Florida, bul it is now rapidly coming into it own. For the past two year? a live tennis club ha been working to improve the courts, and to obtain recognition for the sport from the Athletic Association, and it now seems likely that tennis will next year take its rightful place with baseball, football, basketball, and track, among the intercollegiate sports. Certainly the interest in tennis seems sufficient to justify this move. The climate of Florida permits of tennis throughout the year. It is largely due to its climate that California produces nine out of every ten tennis champions, and no one could say that the climate of California is in any way superior to that of Florida. Even with the small amount of attention given tennis this year, Florida’s representatives made a very good showing. In the open tournament at Tampa in February Paul Taylor and Bill Honaker. with no practice, were nosed out only by a narrow margin in the finals. A proposed tennis trip, with matches at Stetson. Columbia. Southern, Rollins, and other small colleges in the state, fell through; but plans arc now under way for contests next year with these schools, as well as with the larger universities in neighboring states. The tennis club, which for the present makes all arrangements in connection with the sport, has forty live members. The president is Harold Ford; vice-president. Paul Taylor: and secretary-treasurer, Ralph Crosby. One hundred and tuenly-oneSemin ole 1917 WRESTLING CHAMPIONS W. I». HAYMAN WILI. MCELYA E. B. WLTHRICH O. S. ROBLES D. B. CIIAM1’ION One. hundred and twcnty-lwoemmo moHSU WRESTLING FOR llie past three years a great deal of interest has been shown in wrestling at the University, and this year it was the foremost indoor sport and was parti cipated in by a very large number of students. Too much credit cannot he given Messrs. Robles and Walling for their untiring efforts in training the students in this manly art. The annual tournament for the championship of the University is open to all students of the various departments, and the championship is decided by the process of elimination. The Wrestling club is composed only of men who have wrestled in a final bout. The tournament this year was the most interesting and sue cessful in the history of the University. W. McKlya, who defeated Marshall for the lightweight title this year, had an easy time with his adversaries and never required more than ten minutes in which to throw his opponent. Ilayman defeated Blankcnburg in the final bout for the welterweight despite a handicap of nine pounds. This was the most evenly matched pair in the tournament and the fight for the first fall lasted forty-one and three-fourths minutes, hut during this time Ilayman wore out his opponent, and the second fall was secured in two and one-half minutes. Champion proved too much for Hamilton ami secured two falls in nine minutes. He is always in condition, a thorough student of the game and will probably have little difficulty in defending his title next year. Rohles is without doubt the best amateur wrestler in the South, and although he is a light heavyweight he finds no difficulty in handling the heavier men. Mansion, well knowing the result, declined to wrestle Robles on the night of the finals, and G. I . Wood took his place for an exhibition bout which lasted four minutes. Robles retained his title by default of faP on. Wuthrich got his first three counts in seventeen minutes, and Boynton never came back to the mats for the second but allowed the title to go to Wuthrich by default. He is very active for a heavyweight and handles his men with apparent ease. Next year Florida will be ready to stage a tournament with any University in the South. wn One hundred and tuenty-threcINTRA-MURAL ATHLETICS WHILE it 11 possible interest and support is given to intcr-collegiatc atliletics. and especially football, by the students of the I niversitv, every one realizes that such athletics do not completely till the requirements of a great university, for the reason that Varsity teams represent a survival of the fittest and the majority of students cannot participate. While a great numlier of students find sufficient recreation in gymnasium work, tennis, swimming, calisthenics, hiking and military exercise, there arc many young Americans whose vigor requires a more strenuous activity. These ideas, together with the fact that valuable material for the varsity teams could be developed, have given rise to a series of minor games played between classes and groups of men in the University. Varsity men aie barred from participating in these contests. Although these series have only been running a few years and sonic of them were staged this year for the first time, the result has been very gratifying. The first of the series, class football, was participated in by about ninety men. Class basketball brought out fifty men. while the class track meet was a conflict between sixty-live students, and forty to sixty men arc to take part in the series of six class baseball games. In addition to the physical benefits of the individuals some of the best Varsitv talent Florida has ever had was discovered and developed in this manner. It is the hope and aim of the promoters of such athletics that every man in college will have sufficient interest to get in some intra-mural sport every year. Beginning with next year an effort will l e made to have athletic contests lietween the various fraternities on the campus and this should bring even larger numbers of men into these minor sports. ()nr It u ml ml anil twenty-foureoemmole One hundred and twenty-fiveIntern! and spirit ran high in claw football this year and the first game. between the Fresh and Sophs, was a surprise to those who expected the Freshmen to have an easy time. It was the beat class game ever witnessed at the University. The only score was made by Brown. a Freshman half, who intercepted a pass and ran fifty yards for a touchdown. The Seniors defeated the Juniors a week later by the same score, the hall lieing bucked over in the early part of the game. In the final game between the Fresh and Seniors the latter, handicapped by lack of practice, went to pieces and the Fresh piled up a large score. The All Class football team was selected by a committee of three ex-football players, and is as follows: "Hill" Honakkk. at quarter for the Sophs, who was one of the fastest men in class football this year, is a remarkable punter, has the ability to cam the hall and possesses the knowledge and head work for a good quarterback. L. J. LartSTE at full for the Fresh was the shining star of the season. He was the m«»st consistent ground gainer of the season, and was always called over tackle by the Fresh whenever first down was needed. He looks like Varsity material for next year. L. F. HuNTUt at half for the Fresh is a fast, hard runner and picks his holes well, lie was one of the best men the Fresh had, especially on end runs, and his defense was of the type of an “old head.” T. II. CcTZCX (” Get: ”) at half for the Seniors, was live best all around half back on the class teams. His defense is good, he receives a pass well, lie is fast and clever at end runs and on short end brushes he has the uncanny ability to cut in at the proper time. Altho he had tlie disadvantage of playing with a weak team his work was wonderful. W. P. Haymak at end for the Sophs was also an all around star. His defensive work, hard tackling, consistency and endurance put him in a class with the best. D. A. Tl'CKI (“Tuck”) at end with the Fresh, is without doubt Varsity material, lie is an excellent receiver of the forward-pass, equally good on the defense and oflense. He ha a knack of knowing where the play is going, and with this year’s experience not even the old heads will keep him out of a letter next year. Altho L. 0. Boynton played full back for the Juniors, he possesses all the qualities for a Varsity tackle. He has the weight, is fast and aggressive and best of all he ha the ability to break through and break up a play in the forming. II. C. Ford (“Herbie”), at tackle for the Sophs, was the most successful man at stopping tackle brushes. He tackles well, is rangy, aggressive and very consistent. Altho J. W. WaTsON (“Jack”) was the main stay of the Senior line at tackle, wa cliosen for all class guard on account of his speed and knowledge in handling his men. Jack could have been a Vanity man with a little more weight and experience. II. C YoNCCE (“Bull”) deserves the place at guard because of his consistent ability to make hole and stop hi opponents. He is a giant for strength and Florida's prospect for a good guard. R. L. Havion (“Rat”), at center for the Fresh, wa responsible for much of the success of the Freshman aggregation. He is fast, very aggressive, sizes up a play quickly and i a hard tackier. What he lacks in weight he make up in speed, and he i expected to make his letter next year with the Varsity. W. A. Brown (” Brounie ”), at half for the Fresh, deserves special mention Iwcause of lii interception of passes. A. P. Marshall. Soph half, received special mention on aeeount of hi speed and defensive work. W. E. Robinson (“Fats”) is mentioned for hi weight and consistent defensive work. One hundretl and twenty sixeminoie 1 CLASS BASKETBALL The fir t season of an annual class basketball tournament for the championship of the I diversity opened this year with a wave of enthusiasm and interest never shown in basketball here before. It not only created new interest in basketball but brought a large number of men into this branch of athletics. The Freshmen defeated the Sophs 38 20 and the Junior five lost to the Seniors 5 15. In the championship game the Freshmen were again victorious over the Seniors, defeating them by 15 points. The following All-Class basketball team was selected by a committee and represented the l cst players taking part in class contests: Swanson. Clayatt, forwards: Brown, center; McElya. Kent, guards Honorable mention. Ogilvic and DcMeritt CLASS BASEBALL At the time The Seminole goes to press only one of the series of six class baseball games has been played. The Freshmen were victorious over the Sophomores, winning out after the seventh inning over a lead of six runs by the Sophs. The interest shown in the game and the number of men preparing for the other games shows that this series will l»e as great a success as the other inter-class contests held this year. Much credit must be given Coach Stanley and others for the interest created in inter-class athletic's this vear. 19 7 One hum!red and tnenly-sevenSeminole CLASS TRACK Perhaps ihe most interesting branch of inter-mural athletics anti the one in which the greatest number of students participated was class track. In this meet, three men from each class were allowed to enter each event except the hurdles, where the classes were limited to two men each. W hile the races were run with very little training some very good events were recorded. Among the best were the half mile, won by V. VV. Gunn in two minutes and seven seconds, and the low hurdles, finished by Babcock in twenty-seven and four-fifths seconds. W hile the Freshmen were expected to win the meet by a small margin they surprised everyone bv taking thirty-nine ami one-half of the one hundred ami seven points. The Sophs came next with twenty-five points and the Seniors, determined not to be last. beat the Juniors by twenty-two ami one-balf to twenty.

Its prime object is to emphasize scholarship and character in the thought of college students, to hold fast the original purpose for which institutions of learning were founded, and to stimulate mental achievement by the prize of membership. As a secondary object, it seeks to bind the alumni more closely to their alma mater, to furnish an additional tic of college friendship, ami to interest its members in the promotion of more thorough education. Membership is restricted to senior students who have distinguished themselves in scholarship or intellectual service to their college or university, not exceeding one-fourth of any graduating class; and to alumni, faculty and honorary members who have won distinction in science, literature or education. Other honorary societies confine their membership to some particular kind of degree or course of study; the Phi Kappa Phi. by making no such restriction, aims to stand for the unity and democracy of learning. -19 TJ One hundred and forty-nineeoeminoie One hundred and fiftyeramoie ,1 PHI KAPPA PHI I'NIVERSITY OF FLORIDA CHAPTER Established in 1912 RESIDENT CHARTER MEMBERS J.

Its pur-pose is to promote the interests of the University and of the several fraterni-ties here, by insuring a better undemanding and closer cooperation between the various chapters, by encouraging scholarship, and by active support of ail school undertakings. Hitherto this organization has not been very effective, but in the past year a constitution modeled after the customary inter-fraternity agreements has been adopted and thus the business of the committee put on a substantial basis. A cup is being ofTered to the fraternity that makes the highest scholastic record each year; after being won three times by one chapter it will l»ecomc the property of that fraternity. It is also c. | cctcd that a higher standard of scholarship will be set for initiates, to fall below which will prevent a pledge from being initiated, By such means as this, and by all the means at its disposal, it is hoped that this conference will in the future become an important factor in the progress of student allairs.

The faculty, in 1915, donated a cup. to be held each year by the society winning the debating championship, and to become the permanent possession of any society winning it three years in succession. The John Marshall Debating Society, of the College of Law, started after the cup at once. In 1915 its representatives, Sumter I.eitner. Spessard L Holland, and T. J. Swanson, were victorious, and the name of the John Marshall Society was inscribed upon the cup. The next year the lawyers won again, W. I). Payne, T. J. Swanson, and S. A. B. Wilkinson l»eing the debaters. Victory in the series this year would have given the Marshall Society |»ermancnt possession of the cup. In the first debate of the year, however, W. E. Stone, K. W. Barkwcll. and W. R. Briggs, debating for the Agricultural Club, surprised the campus by defeating the Law College debaters. C. II. Lichliter, W. D. Payne, and M. H. Jones, in a sensational debate on the subject of government ownership of railroads. But the surprise was greater when, on April 18. L. C. Crofton. T. R. Robinson, and S. A. B. Wilkinson, for the Teachers College, in an even more sensational debate on the subject of seating cabinet members in Congress, defeated the agricultural men and won the cup. The climax of debating for 1917 came with the triangular intercollegiate debate. Florida was this year invited to join a triangular debating league with Tennessee and South Girolina, taking the place of Ceorgia. Each school entered a team of two men on each side of the question. On April 21, Florida debated South Carolina at Nashville, Tennessee; South Carolina debated Tennessee at Gainesville. Florida: anti Tennessee debated Florida at Columbia, South Carolina, simultaneously, on the question. “Resolved That Immigration to the United States Be Restricted by a Literacy Test.” The Florida debaters selected for the afTirmative against South Carolina were L. S. Anderson and W. H. Burford; for the negative against Tennessee. P. I). IlufT and V. I). Mudgc. On April 16 Mr. Huff was called to the colors, and his place was taken by L J. Stadler. On April 21 the debates were held. At Gainesville South Carolina defeated Tennessee, at Nashville Florida defeated South Carolina, and at Columbia Florida defeated Tennessee. Florida was therefore champion of the league this year, with South Carolina second. It is hoped that next year Florida will again debate in this league, and that in addition a minor league within the state and perhaps another major league with the larger schools outside the state will be formed. 1917 One hundred and right y-iwoOne hundred and eighty-threeOne hundred and eighty-fourSeminol C.

We arc very proud, and we believe justly so. of what the local association has accomplished. Aside from the general three-fold ideal of the Young Men’s Christian Association, there is peculiar to college associations another three-fold phase which might l e called the three stages in its evolution. .Necessarily the fir-t stage in the life of a college association is the organization of students. Our association existed in this stage from the founding of the I niversity up to 1016, and the fact that we have at last emerged from this stage is a tribute to the efforts of those students gone before who gave of their time and talent to this great work. At present we find our association in the second stage of its development, that is with a permanent full-time Secretary guiding and directing the organization of students in the Y. M. C. A. work. Although the Secretary has been with us only about eight months, we can already see the wonderful benefits of the combination. For most efficient service there must be another unit in this combination. It represents the third stage in the process of evolution. It is the goal to which we have l ecn ami are working. It is a Y. M. C. A. building here on the campus. It is needed to round out the organization ami without it the association cannot perform its service to the fullest extent. Our aim then is a combination of a conscientious 'indent organization. a permanent Secretary and a Y. M. C. A. building, working together for the fullc't development of the spirit, mind and body of the students. In short, the aim id the association is a University characterized by true, stalwart manhood.

The University officials very kindly consented to give the students the morning off so they could act as guides to the visitors and meet the men who had trot! the paths of learning before them. For a few days l efore this date men began to flock into Gainesville, increasing as the great day approached. Among the notables coming was the famous “ Rear Rank,” of Pressing Club fame. Many of his old friends rejoiced to sec him hack, as lie left a name here that will never he forgotten. He seemed equally glad to return and received a warm reception from some of the inmates of 44 C Section, Huckman.” Another notable to respond to the call of his Alma Mater was the renowned “Junk” Yongue, who had been assistant head waiter in “ Mess Hall.” His tall, stately form could be seen advancing with rapid strides up the road for more than an hour before he reached Gainesville. If space and time were plentiful more of the famous veterans of bv-gonc days could be enumerated, but these two factors will not permit. The throngs eagerly awaited the hour for the big game to start. This was predicted to be the biggest ami hardest fight a “ Gator " had ever entered and Mr. Prophet was more than correct. At two o'clock both the bleachers and grandstand, as well as all parking place, were crowded. At two-thirty sharp the referee's whistle started the battle. It was a test of Alabama's speed against Florida's grit. For one whole hour the twenty-two demons struggled back and forth. Finally when the end of that fierce slaughter came the Alabamians were the victors as far as the score was concerned, but the Gator rooters and supporters were satisfied that their team had done the best they could and nothing more could be desired. After that fierce battle another great treat was in store for the visitors. They were to dine at Mess Hall, the house famed for its tender steaks and light rolls and other delectable dainties like mother used to make. Then came the banquet. The coach of the Alabamians showered praise on the fighting Gators. Also we were honored by a speech from the Athletic member of the faculty from the University of Alabama. Then we were given speeches by men who had not been to college for many years, but who still had the interest of their Alma Mater at heart. Also apeechet by men who had only shortly left this institution and who expressed the wish that they could be with us again as of old. Now comes the close of a perfect day leaving out the score!, with a big dance at the Elks Club. Every one was invited to come and “ trip the light fantastic.” At eight-thirty the crowds began to arrive. Many brought w ith them a meml»er of the fair sex, but most of us were not so unfortunate. Many of these folks had an added supply of 44 pep”—from whence it came is unknown, but it was certainly present. 'Hie music being furnished by the orchestra of the University, and fellows, you can't realize how a bunch like that can get such harmony out of those things they call instruments of music. As the wee small hours came on the music stopped and the dancers left the hall, and the Home-Coming Day, Octol er 16th. 1916. was pronounced the greatest ever held. 1917 Two hundred and twenty-fiveTwo harulred and twenty-sixeramo THE FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE FIGHT Twas on a Saturday afternoon— All, well do I remember; The whistle blew too soon, too soon. That bleak day in December. Tile sophs were in the pink of form, The fresh inclined a bit towards black; The sky was blue, the day was warm. The flag was as high as Wool worth's shack. Time and again did those freshmen try To grab the flag from its place on high. But the sophs couldn’t sec their point of view; They objected—so what could the poor rats do ? And now, upon that bloody lawn The twin-six teams came from afar. Here was the test of brain and brawn. The fresh man-sophomore tug-of-war. In thirty-six seconds their tongues were out. And the sophs were sliding along the ground; The rat supporters gave a shout. The sophomores uttered not a sound. But to finish this Homeric gush. Let me add just one more line of slush. The neophyte stars Won the tug-of-w r. But the sophs walked away with the rush. Warning to Faculty : Do not scan the feet of this idyll, match has been nipped in the bud when he scanned her feet. -19 rj Two hundred and twenty-sevenf tw pjjjnnn omI,1 eminoie UNIVERSITY CARNIVAL ON Wednesday. November 22. the jieoplc of (Gainesville were afforded one of the most brilliant and interesting pageants which it has ever been their pleasure to witness. The parade left the I niversily Campus promptly at 10 o'clock, ami proceeded to the Court Mouse square. The streets of the city were lined with the enthusiastic supporters ami well-wishers of the I niversily. Much applause was received as the creations from the different college passed by the throngs of interested spectators. The I niversily Band led the procession, followed by the battalion in full military regalia. The bicycle corps, the faculty, and the float followed in the order named. The floats were all of different sty le. and showed that originality could be brought out by the friendly rivalry which exi t between the colleges of the University. To one who knows the results of the right kind of friendh competition it seems that the spirit which exists between the colleges is to Ik highly commended, as it spurs the participants in the various student activities on to greater efforts for their college and the University. The first float, labeled King of the Kanipus." showed very plainly the trials thru which the knight of the flashlight. 44 llawkshaw.” was accustomed to be dragged by the pranks of some of the fun-loving students. The float from the College of Arts and Science conic next, showing b the design that education, wisdom, and know ledge form the arch which uphold. the world. The College of Engineering was the next, with it well-chosen float bearing the statement, “ The March of Civilization i Led by the Engineer.” The design showed the engineer surveying for the railroad which was being built to the rear. The College of Law was well represented by two float characteristic of the profession and by a troop of lawyer walking with a huge form of the books which they study. One float represented Ju ticc and the other one the court proceeding in a family quarrel. Both floats showed the great amount of work which had Iktcii spent on them. The Teachers College also was represented by two well-arranged floats designed to show the progress made in educational facilities in the last few vear . One was a log school house ami the other a modern school. The College of Agriculture had more float in the pageant than any other college. The floats showed very plainly the position agriculture hold in the world. Among them were “King Cotton.” “Horn of Plenty.” “Agriculture Supports the World.” “Progress in Machinery,” “Old Faithful." 44 Improved Sausage Mill.” and others. The floats were all very tastefully decorated by the students, showing that they were not only able to accomplish things on the athletic field, in their studies, ami in the various other activities which they carry on, but that they were able to plan and carry out a most successful pageant at the same time. The prize for the best float from all the college was given to the Law College, the judges having decided that the best float of the entire pageant came from these students. mil Two hundred and twenty-nineTwo hundred and thirtyOie Seminole ( 5 BAND TAKES IN FORT MYERS RENDERS ABLE ASSISTANCE IN “CONQUESTS DE LA FLORIDE” “ How bout it, Mac ? ” yells Red. “ Ready to ride.” “ I-et's go.” came from twenty men. and the bus was off for town, am! the initial stage of our annual debacle. “ Pusil ” Spain met us at the station and we were all there—21 strong, and very strong due to the recent cold weather ami scarcity of coal in the University barracks. At any rate we were there, and pitched in a kc somewhere around “ C sharp.” Our troubles began when we attempted to board the “ W ilcox Limited ”—the conductor being stubbornly opposed to our doing so. on the ground that this train was in no manner cither a zoo or a livestock car. and it was with the greatest difficulty that we finally arranged for the accommodation of all our members. The trip down was uneventful, if a 300-mile trip with such a collection could possibly be, and was unbroken except for some 7 or 8 changes which the conductor persuaded us were imperative, if we were to finally reach one Fort Myers. We had to spend two “wonderful" hours in Ocala, and succeeded in taking on nourishment sufficient to keep going until we hit the “Lena Cafe’’ some time that night. At Plant City the customs official intercepted our baggage, but was forced to abandon bis searches in vain. Anything a customs official could seek never could get as far as a suit case in that bunch. From there to Fort Myers wc passed thru 37 towns, of which I shall mention only two—Bartow and Arcadia—not as they arc more deserving of mention (far be it in fact), but simply since they are first alphal etically. The old Caloosahatchee didn't slow us by a whit, and we finally arrived at our destination about 10:30 in the P. M. Ye officials were there, as were others, and wc immediately proceeded to tear off “The Swing” in “Dark-town” style, after which wc marched thru, around, over and about the beautiful city of Fort Myers in quest of our private “ Yachet ” Suwannee—on which wc were pleasantly internet! during our stay. The following morning our duties began, in the form of one continuous, alternating blast, during which the swarthy “ Brown Skin " succeeded in making a landing ant! establishing a village on the coast. Follow ing this wc were all forced to partake of a barbecue prepared by the Indian cooks, consisting of whole jew-fish. bread and the dill pickle, sometimes followed by the hot tin of coffee. That night came the “Green Corn Dance,” a wonderful affair without a doubt, but the only missing feature was the Corn-absent in bunches. Following the Green Cornlcss affair came a street dance—a masque affair. The Fort Myers Bant! on the street, anti we on the Hotel Bratlfortl balcony, overlooking the entire gathering, and take it from one who was there, it was “A” gathering of the 3rd degree. Sailors, soldiers, boys, girls, ladies, women, and biscuit-shooters by scads. This lasted until 10:30, at which time we retired to “Hotel Suwannee” and spent the remainder of the night in varied amusements, the chief of which was eating. -19T7 Two hundred and thirty-oneI ►emmoie The next morning the Spaniards landed, killed the Seminole braves and succeeded in capturing the fair squaws. This was “ awfully exciting,” in the language of Per-cival. and was finally compromised into a street dance right after dinner. That afternoon the water sports held the crowd spell-bound for fifteen minutes, and after this it was musicians vs. kitchen mechanics—up and down, round and round. That night there was a free attraction, amateur circus, and dramatic staging of the entire three-day fest. attended by a large crowd and scads of fireworks. Thursday morning came the huge parade—hundreds of automobiles decorated to a million, and at least one for every state in the Union. In this parade walked the school kids, all other dignitaries of the city, and anyone else who could get an Indian or Spanish make-up. That afternoon a ball game between Indian and white proved conclusively that Cubans are ball players, and the stock in I. S. Steel rose 3 points. Thursday night was the last night, ami everybody had been saving up clothes, kale. etc.—lots of the last mentioned. The racket started about 7 and a half and ran steady until about 11. Then came the biscuit-shooters' ball on the municipal docks. For fear of the censor I will refrain from describing this ball, but suffice it to say that everybody there was there. That night about 1 P. Z. the brass Octave gave an unannounced concert to the grand surroundings—appreciated no doubt as per mention in the Fort Myers Press of the following day. That same night the cymbal, drum and slide section squirmed to Punta Kassa. accompanied by “ Cora." “ Mae.” and others, and they report excellent docks, government officials, and searchlights to match. With this last, gentle reader, I close, offering no a| ologics. nor mentioning any further notes, with exception of the 12-hour trip homeward (or hell-ward, as expressed by the chief griper), and so I will postpone the remnants of this illuminating article until the following motion. To summarize our adventures, we had the most regular trip since our organization some several years ago, and it is the greatest wish of every member that we may be able to repeat the experiences. -19T7 Two hundred and llitrly-UvoSAILOR BOY ARTETTE 19 7== FOURTH ANNUAL TOUR OF THE UNIVERSITY GREATER MINSTRELS TALLAHASSEE, QUINCY AND MARIANNA SHOW SPORTING BLOOD THE l diversity Greater Minstrels were this year absolutely the last word in the minstrel world. .Nothing but the best was used in any department; music scored especially for the show; men drilled to the point of professionalism: and scenery and costumes worth a small fortune, arc only a few of the points to be shown with pride to the observer. From the time the curtain rose on the first j»erformance. in Gainesville, the success of the show was no longer a matter of question, but a fact, which was enlarged during the tour. After playing here on Thursday night, March 29th. we held two rehearsals and Two hundred and thirty-three ieS emin ole ihc ' Minstrel Limited " pulled out Saturday A. M. for Tallahassee via T. J. route. We hit Tallahassee about eleven that night and declared a truce until daylight. Morning found the “ props ’ busy, ami with the whole bunch at the wheel it only took about three hours to get set up in the theatre where we were to play the show. Then for the grand parade to the Women's College, out about ten blocks from Broadway. Every fellow knew where we were going and accordingly had put on all the finishing touches he could (when traveling “ en minstrelic’ , and you could hardly tell whether it was Dockstader or O’Brien on parade, and that old band listened FRANK SPAIN JOE DALTON like Silas Creen. Reaching the college campus about 12 noon, we proceeded to tear things open, and nearly all down too. Those girls sure gave us a glad hand, ami one who has never visited a girls school simply docs not know how it feels, and never will. We even stayed and had lunch with them, but there was very little eaten by the bunch due to the large amount of looking to lie done. Finally we got back to town just in lime to put on our matinee, placed to a full house, and got off in great style. Our big show followed that night to another packed house and “ Fannie ” was seen smiling one continuous smile. After the show we were entertained at a dance by the Elks, in their beautiful home. Several alumni were present w ith their accustomed “ pep ”—w ith a crown top—and the girls from school were there in bunches. Noise was rendered by the in-famous Cedar Key Choir and we twirly-twirled until we were tired to the bone. The feature of our stay in Tallahassee was the legislature, which was just in readiness for meeting. Several fumiliar faces could l»e seen and they seemed as 1917 Two hundred and thirty-fouremmo pleased lo see us a we were to see them. We sincerely hope that our show will help a hit towards persuading them to give us a new “ Gym.” The next morning we hauled out for Quincy, landing about the middle of the day, ami proceeded immediately with the parade. That night we played to a packed house and afterwards were given a dance by the | eoplc of Gadsden County. The following and last day we hit Marianna—a spot of renown, due largely to the Keform School there, and also to the alumni who live in the burg. There again we played to a full house, ami our Business Manager was almost beside himself with joy. leaving Marianna about noon the following day we got home Thursday at midnight, tired but pleased, individually broke but collectively rich, and everyone living for the next trip. M. G. FF.l'EKHAK Two hu ml ml and thirty fiveQieSerainole THE AG CLUB PLAY BY FAR the greatest success of the season was the play “ Vacation. ' presented by the Farmers of the Ag College. The first performance was given in Gainesville on April 1st. before the largest audience gathered in the history of the city. The play caused an uproar from start to finish, and most noticeable when Rat Thomas ap| earcd as September Morn, but of the darker color. Onions, carrots, and cabbages were cheerfully donated in abundance and verily Mess Hall produced a fine dinner the next day. The play started promptly at eight bells, but the first act was held up at 8:09 because Stoutamire busted a very important button anti was unable to ap| ear on schedule time. During the intermission Charlie Mann sang a duct with his dog as an accompaniment, causing much agony on liehalf of the congregated citizens of the city. Dr. Chapman rendered in his pleasing manner several selections taken from “ The Chinese Opera." Merrin located his girl in the audience and failed to kill the villain, but much thanks to Thompson, the villain, lie died of his own accord. At the close of the final act the audience refused to leave so the entire play was repeated, much to the disgust of Bill Stone, the Air Line Artist." News of the great play spread far and wide, and soon the desk of the business manager was flooded with letters asking for engagements for all the large cities of the land. After much consideration contracts were signed to play both in Cabbage-Dale and Mole-Hill. The congregations at these places consisted largely of Farmers, their dogs, wives, and children, who had come from far and wide to gaze upon their fellow kind, dancing behind the footlights instead of the rear end of a fertilizer distributor. The treatment and courtesies shown us at Cabbage-Dale were exceedingly kind. At Mole-Hill the entire troupe was given the use of the tow n swimming hole in spile of numerous protests. The trip to these cities would have been an admirable success had not the T. J. been held up and Manager Merrin relieved of the roll in his possession. Our fame had spread like wildfire and the next engagement was to spend the week-end over in New York. G. P. Wood’s mule Sal broke out of the dressing room and caused a panic on Wall Street when she fell into the subway, blocking the traffic of the overhead railway. During the performance Barkwell got stage fright at the sight of several million people and donated his supper to the property man. Bill Stone was carelessly fishing and thinking of the girl he was to meet after the show, when his dreams realized that he had caught the bass drummer in the third act. Mudge as the Irishman caused much amusement when Meda O’HclIigin came forward ami claimed him as her long-lost brother. When time for the fourth act arrived, Camp was missing, and as it would have been ini| os$iblc to proceed with the show, the entire cast turned out for him. and in the meantime the audience was being entertuined with shrieks and wails by Trombonists Helms and Shull of the celebrated “ U. of F." Orchestra. After much search and worry Camp was located tipping the girls in “ The Golden Days of ’49 Thus the season closed, and under the management of Frank Merrill the financial report showed the Agricultural Club to be $3.19 to the good. -1917 Two hundred and thirty six eraino FOREWORD Gentle Reader, are you one of those that make an Etcetera Section necessary ?

The opinion sufficiently states the facts. Haig and Haig, for Appellants. Sliti and Budwiser. for Appellees. Monroe. Chief Justice. (For the court.) This i an action sounding in tort in which Mcphistopheles and September Morn sue the Florida Alligator, an association duly organized and incorporated under the law of the Everglades. It appears from the record that on or about the-------day of---------A. D. 1916. the defendants caused to be published an article inferring that the plaintiffs had engjged in that form of Mexican sport commonly known as Bull Fighting, contrary to an act prohibiting frame-ups, political pulls, and boot-licking. Plaintiffs had judgment in the court below. The defendants assign the following errors: First. That the court of Hot Air had no jurisdiction of the subject matter. Second. That the learned judge erred in admitting certain evidence, to wit; that the plaintiffs were good plumbers, good electricians, that they kept good training during footliall season, that they never bummed cigarettes, that they held the degree of Bachelor of Army Craft, that they had been engaged in the manufacturing of Soft Soap," and that they had never framed up for an election. Third. That the cause of action was barred by the running of the Statute of Limitation. 1. The first error is well taken as the court of Hot Air has no jurisdiction of a corporation existing under the laws of the Everglades. 2. The evidence was correctly admitted under the well established rule of evidence allowing the plaintiff to set up a good character in an action for libel. 3. The Statute of Limitation had run on plaintiff's cause of action. By See. 356 Ha. code, which is as follows. “All causes of action arising from Hot Air must Ik brought while the air is polluted and warm.” It was clearly proven in this ease that all parlies had retired from the Chocolate Milk Saloon to their respective Dives before the said cause of action was begun. For errors pointed out above the judgment must be reversed. Cooper, justice, dissents. I respectfully dissent from the opinion of the court for live following rea«ons. to wit; according to page 48. par. 6. line 2. “ Elementary Law of Polluted Air." a court of Hot Air has jurisdiction of all cases arising between real or artificial persons whereby the air is alleged to have been polluted on the ground that such pollution is contrary to Public Policy. And furthermore, the Statute of Limitations could not run during the nervous breakdown of either of the plaintiffs. 3917= Two hundred and fifty-eightFACULTY CANNING CLUB Two hundred and fifty-nineemmoie ,1 PROGRAM U.
