l-IE Academic year, l945-46, will stand out in Univer-
sity history as "the year the looys came back." Nine-
teen hundred veterans swelled mid-year enrollment
well over the three thousand mark, spring enrollment
exceeded that of the preceding semester for the first time.
The University welcomed the returned men with out-
stretched, but inadequate arms. During the first hectic
days shortages popped up in alarming quantities. Text-
books, classrooms, and most important, housing, were
all loadly needed. Cn the credit side, there was a huge
surplus of sturdy determination . . . a capalole adminis-
tration, determined to do right loy the looys, and a deter-
mined student body loent on acquiring the education
they so justly deserve.
Somehow, things worked out. Flavet Village went
up to house one hundred families. Evening classes were
held to ease the classroom shortage. Experienced ad-
ministration and a mature student loody worked together
to maintain and support the Tradition of Florida.
This year has had a spirit all its own. The usual
"happy memories of college days" stuff is more than a
trifle off key. The war has reflected itself in the thinking
of today's Florida Man, whether he has gone to war
or not. .
lf this, the '46 Seminole, has something of its own, it
is the spirit of the new Florida Man. Nineteen forty-six
shall stand as the year in which this spirit has emerged,
a spirit which will raise the University of Florida to its
rightful place among the great universities of the Nation.
