RESOLUTIONS PASSED 



NUMEROUS CHANGES ARE MADE IN FACULTY 



DEDICATORY CONTEST IS SET FOR OCTOBER 2 



The many students of the Univer- 
sity, members of the faculty, officers 
of the administration, friends and 
acquaintances were grieved to hear 
of the death of Mrs. Lucella W. Pat- 
terson, which occurred at her resi- 
dence on the University campus last 
Friday afternoon at 3 o’clock. Bron- 
chitis, contracted a few weeks ago, 
was the cause of her death. Mrs. Pat- 
terson is survived by her husband, Dr. 
.Tames K. Patterson, president emer- 
itus of State University, and by a 
sister, Mrs. Lucy R. Yost, of Green- 
ville, Ky. She was 80 years old. 

The funeral services were held at 
the Patterson home on the University 
campus Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock, 
the Rev. Edwin Muller, pastor of the 
First Presbyterian Church, and the 
Rev. Dr. Charles Lee Reynolds, pas- 
tor of the Second Presbyterian Church, 
conducting the services, The inter- 
ment took place in the Patterson mau- 
soleum in the Lexington cemetery. 

The loss of one of Kentucky’s most 
noble women was deeply lamented 
through the local press, and in reso- 
lutions adopted by the Alumnae Club 
and the faculty of State University 
Saturday afternoon as follows: 

"Whereas, it has pleased an all-wise 
Providence to remove from our midst 
Lucelia Wing Patterson, the beloved 
wife of James K. Patterson, president 
emeritus of State University; 

“Therefore, be it resolved by the 
faculty of the State University that 
we extend to Doctor Patterson our 
sincere and heart-felt sympathy in 
this sad hour of his bereavement. 

"For many years his stay and help- 
mate, she brought into his life the in- 
spiration and charm of a gentle wom- 
anliness, the hope and steadfastness 
of purpose of a Christian character. 

‘IGentilie, kindly, patient, actuated 
only by noble purposes, a gentlewoman 
by birth and education, she left an 
abiding impress for good upon the 
lives of many generations of stu- 
dents, and into the atmosphere of

Whn the doors of Buell Armory 
were formally thrown open Monday 
morning for the beginning of the 
forty-seventh annual session of the 
University, a large crowd was waiting 
to matriculate, and it was after 6 
o'clock Tuesday night before the reg- 
istration ceased. A total of 918 were 
registered in the two days and this 
number is expected to be considerably 
augmented before the end of the

Freshman Hair Not to be 
Cut This Year, Is the 
Faculty Rule 



With Lexington 



PARK WITH ST. LOUIS 



On September 6 a letter was sent by 
the President of the University to each 
male member of the Senior class, and 
one to the parents of each male mem- 
ber, emphasising the seriousness of 
the offense of hazing, which includes 
hair-cutting, and stating the penalty 
for any infraction of the anti-hazing 
rule. The letter addressed to the stu- 
dents follows: 

Lexington, Ky., Sept. 6, 1915. 
"My Dear Young Friend: — 

"At the coming session of the Uni- 
versity, you will be in the Senior 
claes. 

“The object of this letter is to call 
your attention to the fact that the 
faculty has passed a stringent rule 
against hazing of any kind, and es- 
pecially against that form of hazing 
which consists in cutting the Fresh- 
men’s hair. I also wish to remind you 
that, last year, when certain young 
men in the dormitories were reinstat- 
ed for the offense of hazing, it was 
done upon the promise that hereafter 
all sorts of hazing would be banished 
from the campus. That was the con- 
tract signed by all the students in the 
dormitories. 

“Frequently, when students have 
gotten into trouble in the University 
and been punished, they have appeal- 
ed to me, as President of the Univer- 
sity, on the grounds they did not know 
the existence of the law for the breach 
of which they were punished. Thus 
far, 1 have always helped them out of 
trouble, but having obligated myself 
to the faculty to carry out this rule, it 
will be my duty to see that the law 
against hazing is enforced next ses- 
sion. 

“1 hope you will return to school in 
good health and spirits, and with the 
full determination to assist me in the 
enforcement at all lawful discipline 
on the campus and to uphold my hand 
in everything for the good of "State.” 

“I hope you will not consider this in 
any way, a threat, but that you will 
feel that it has come from my heart 
and for your benefit. 

"Hoping to see you soon on the cam- 
pus, I am 

"HENRY S. BARKER, 



The matriculation was carried on 
very systematically, very little trou- 
ble being experienced by the stu- 
dents. After matriculation, the stu- 
dents were able to find out about 
their courses, classes, et cetera, from

(Special Dispatch to the Kentucky 
Kernel.) 



PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Sept. 14.— 
James Park, former Kentucky State 
University athlete, of the St. Louis 
Browns, won his third successive 
j game, defeating ur- locul team here 
today, score 12 to 4. Park allowed 
I only four hits and struck out three 
men. 

The ability of Kentucky State Wild- 
cats to make good outside of college 
amateur circles has been amply dem- 
| onstrated during the past summer by 
| the records of “Jim” Park, Ad Thom- 
as, "Rasty” Wright, and “Biscuit” 
Reed, all of whom have been playing 
professional baseball this season, and 
I who have decidedly made good. All 
of them were members of the Lexing- 
ton Ohio State League team, which 
was a contender in both of split-sea- 
son races in that league, and the K. S. 
U. boys were among the best in the 
whole circuit. 

Paul GoBsage, the well-known pitch- 
er, who was a student in the Law De- 
partment last year, but was prevented 
from playing on the University team 
because of his professional record, 
spent the summer as a member of the 
Charlotte (N. C.) team in the North 
Carolina League. 

 . "Jim” Park was purchased by the 

8l.« Louis American League team for a 

price said to be one of the largest ever

And reported to them during the lat- 
ter part of August. On September 7 
he pitched his first game in the 
majors against the Cleveland team, 
with one of their strongest pit tier- 
opposing him and as was expected ot 
him won the game, by the score of 4 



Various changes have been made in 
several departments, both in courses 
and faculty. The College of Agricul- 
ture has added courses in vegetable 
gardening and in floriculture. The 
greenhouses and gardens at the Ex- 
periment Station will be used by the 
students this year more than ever be 
fore. Two additions have been made 
to the faculty of this college. N. R. 
Elliot, from Ohio State University, 
takes the position made vacant by the 
resignation or Fred Hofman, who ac- 
cepted a position with the Bureau of 
Markets Department, of Washington, 
D. C., and Dr. Philip L. Blumenthal, 
graduate of this University and of 
Yale, has accepted a position as chem- 
ist at the Experiment Station. 

Candidates for degrees in this de- 
partment who have not done practical 
farming work, will be required to 
work on the farm at least two sum- 
mers before they can graduate. 

The College of Law has added a re- 
quirement for entrance that all stu- 
dents under twenty-one years of age 
must have one year of university 
work, in this department two addi- 
tions have been made to the faculty. 
Reubeu B. Hutchcraft, Jr., graduate 
of Transyivunia College and of the 
Harvard Law School, will be instruc- 
tor aud ( icorge DuRelle, of Louisville, 
will leliver a course of lectures on

“It seems to me that only a very 
bad run of luck could prevent State 
from having one of the best football 
teams she has ever had,” said Dr. 
Tlgert, the popular University coach, 
familiarly referred to among the stu- 
dent body as “Tige,” the other even- 
ing after coming in from the new Bar- 
ker Stadium with his large squad of 
prospective Wildcats. 



“Everything points to a bright 
year,” continued the "long logician.” 
“We have a splendid field — undoubted- 
ly one of the best in the South. The 
material at hand is excellent; the ath- 



The first meeting of the staff of 
The Kentucky Kernel will be held Fri- 
day afternoon at 3:30 o’clock in the 
Journalism Department rooms in the 
basement of the Main Buildiug. Plans 
for the year will be discussed and 
details of the system will be worked 
out. It is absolutely imperative that 
each member of the staff attend this 
meeting unless prevented by some- 
thing unavoidable. ThU is the most 
important staff meeting for the year.

Reed and Wright were as good in 
their respective positions as any play- 
ers in the Ohio State circuit Reed 
joined the team in June and played 
the remainder of the season first as 
third baseman and later on second, 
and as substitute catcher. In his ear- 
ly games “Biscuit” was guilty of mak- 
ing a number of errors, but with a 
little seasoning he overcame this un- 
fortunate habit and played a good 
steady gome. His work on second was 
sensational and showed that he was 
naturally best fitted for playing this 
difficult position. He was right there 
with the stick, too, getting the credit 
for breaking up the long Fifth of July 
game which was tied ln the eleventh 
inning by his long drive to right field 
for two bases. The crowning achieve- 
ment of his season’s work was his abil- 
ity to steal bases which he learned in 
course of time, and it is reported that 
in one game be stole home. This re- 
port could not be verified although it 
is believed to be true. 

"Rosty,” who was signed up by the 
leveland Americans before school 
was out, reported to them about the 
niddle of June and after a short try- 
out was returned to the Lexington 
team for some more seasoning before 
taking a regular position with the 
major league team. “Rasty” may not 
have been ready for the majors, but 
he sure did make them take notice by 
his work with the Lexington team. In 
his first game, he beat out a bunt to 
Irst and without stopping continued 
on to second base, which so startled 
the opposing players that they allowed 
him to reach the Becond sack in safe- 
ty. When the next man up singled 
“Rasty” repeated his performance, and 
after reaching third which was all he 
was entitled to on the Bingle, stretched 
it into another base and reached the 
home plate ln safety to the surprise of 
the fans and the opposing team. Dur- 
ing the entire season he batted well 
and was a terror on the bases at all 
lines. His moat sensational perform- 
ance was in one of the last games of 
the season when he came ln from deep 
right where he was playing and 
scooped up a ball which had been too 
hot for the pitcher or second base- 
man to touch, and handled it with 
efficient rapidity to break into a i

Sisler, the Michigan star pitcher 
who played here last spring in right

playing star ball with the St. Louis 
Browns, “Jim” Parks’ team all sum- 
mer. After pitching several games 
for them, of which he won a healthy 
percentage, he was given a try-out at 
first base, ln which position he has 
been playing ever since. He has made 
a record by his ability to hit the ball 
at any and all times and is touted as 
a coming winner. In the double-head-

Philadelphia last Saturday, he got five 
hits and a sacrifice out of nine times

(Continued from Page 1) 
ha* always been able to inculcate 
Into an athletic organisation under 
hit direction. Remember the Fresh- 
men team of 1914. 

The panning of Park, Tuttle, Hite, 
Scott, Downing, Bailey, Roth and oth- 
er* marks the practical destruction of 
last year's team. An entirely new 
barkfleld will have to be built up, and 
positions In the line are by no means 
assured. 

Of the old Varsity men who are 
back this season Captain Shrader 
stands at the head. He has not been 
out for practice In the afternoons be- 
cause of other duties, but has been 
seen In the mornings booting the ball 
50 and 60 yards. 

Big "Fats” Thompson, with his 190 
pounds, is cavorting around In char- 
acteristic style. He is faster this 
year than ever and Coach Tlgert says 
he is seriously considering playing the 
big man on the end this season. 

Maury Crutcher, ex-Manual star and 
for the past two years a Varsity man, 
will be out soon. 

Franklin Corn, of Harrodsburg, an- 
other last year’s linesman, is out again 
with his 185 pounds solidly built 
around his massive frame. 

Karl Zerfoss, who was used on the 
end and In the backfleld last year, 
will try for a position on the '15 elev- 1 
en. 

Coach Tlgert is basing his optimis- 
tic forecast concerning a winning ag- 
gregation largely upon the Freshman 
team, all of whom are in the Univer- 
sity again. 

Outstanding in the bunch, and about 
whom has been much anxiety con- 
cerning his matriculating this year is 
"Doc” Rjodes, who has decided to \ 
cast his lot again with the Blue and 
White. “Doc” could not resist the 
call of the blood in spite of the press 
of business in which he has been en- 
gaged down in Mississippi. 

Kinney, of the Freshman team, and 
Bart Peak are men whom Tlgert can 
call on to relieve Rodes. 

Jimmie Hedges, always a popular 
favorite along the side lines, is also in j 
college but has not yet appeared for 
practice. 

For backfleld positions will be Grab- 
felder, one of the fastest and most 
powerful men In college; Gumbert, of 
Richmond, who has appeared in sev- 
eral Varsity games; Britton, the big, 
massive fullback on the Freshman 
team, who hails all the way from Col- 
orado. “Tink” and Charley Haydon, 
the Springfield ends, and "Red" 
Spaulding, a townsman, who did 
guard duty for the Freshmen, will 
work hard for places. Hlckerson, the 
big linesman from Somerset, is here 
but due to an illness this summer is 
not in the best of shape. 

Server, Freshman tackle last year, 
is out booting the pigskin 60 or more 
yard. In the kicking department the 
coaches say they are admirably 
equipped. 

Dempsey is about 17 pounds lighter 
than he was last year, as he only man- 
ages to tip the beam at 185 or there- 
abouts. 

Simpson, former Lexington High 
School star, who played guard for the 
Freshmen last year, weighs about 185 
pounds at present and is in good 
shape. "Red” Eubanks, a substitute 
lineman last year, who weighs over 
200 and who came to State in 1914 
as "green as a gourd” as far as foot- 
ball is concerned, should develop into 
a good man this season. 

Hherley Clayton, a 190-pound Mur- 
ray. Ky., product, is back for a posi- 
tion and work in the University.

Almost anything that can be said 
about the new arrivals, who are foot- 
ball hungry, Is only problematical at 
present. Those showing up well In 
practice are: 

Clements, of Morganfleld, who has 
starred on the high school team of 
that place for the last three or four 
years and who weighs about S00 
pounds. 

Vanderen, a 165-pound compactly 
built and strong Cynthlana high 
school man. 

1 Nat Aaron, of Liberty, Ky., who 
will weigh 165 at present, says he Is 
almost 10 pounds underweight. 

These men are line material and 
another who Is expected to show up 
soon Is Tapscott, of Owensboro. To 
describe him would be to say ha Is 
enormous. He weighs more than 200 
pounds. 

For the backfleld the most likely 
candidates of the new men at present 
seem to be: 

Mcllvaln, a Cynthlana boy, who will 
weigh about 165 pounds. This man 
is highly commended by those who 
have seen him in action for Cynthlana 
High School. 

A teammate and the other half on 
the Cynthlana team last year is Poin- 
dexter. He weighs about 10 pounds 
less than Mcllvaln, but Is lightning 
fast. 

Clarence Davidson, the best man on 
last year’s Covington High School 
team, which "mopped up” with nearly 
all the high school teams around Cin- 
cinnati and the northern part of the 
State. This man weighs only 155, 
but is as wide as he is high and solid 
as an oak. 

Paul Spann, one of the best men 1 
that Shelbyville High School has ever 
produced, is a man similar in build to 
that of Davidson. His weight is prac- 
tically the same. 

Many others are out, and probably 
the best “find” in college has not 
been referred to here. 

E. E. Bogie, a 230-pounder, of Mt. 
Sterling; William Duncan, of Owens- 
boro, who is pronounced by the large 
Davies County contingent in the Uni- 
versity to be the best football player 
in the state, are other possibilities, 
who, the coaches say, may come in. 

Crutcher promises to induce Heick, 
the star center on Manual’s eleven 
last year, to come here. 

"Chicken” Park, "Turkey’s” broth- 
er, is expected to come out soon, as 
is another brother, George, of the fa- 
mous Park family. 

Karl Zerfoss also has a "kid” 
brother, George, in school, who is 
larger than Karl and is said to be 
good pigskin “stuff.” 

Butler College will be here October 

2 for the opening game. It will be 
the dedication game of the new Bar- 
ker Stadium and Judge Barker will 
in all probability be called upon to 
make a speech. 

The new Held is a beauty. Besides 
the addition to the new fences and 
the bleachers which have been erect- 
ed, a new press box which will accom- 
odate the Kentucky Kernel, Lexington 
Herald and Leader and other repre- 
sentatives, will be erected before the 
first game in the center and at the top 
of the new bleachers on the south 
side. 



UNIV. BEGINS HERE 

— 

(Continued from Page 1) 
chemistry, and E. F. Ellzey, of Mis- 
sissippi A. and M., is doing fellowship 
work oil the same subject. Derrell 
Hart, graduate of this University, and 
who has been doing summer work at 
Columbus, has been added to the fac- 
ulty us assistant in English. Miss 



Frances Jewell, graduate of Vassar 
College, will also be an assistant in 
the English Department this year. 
Miss Christine Hopkins will do fellow- 
ship work in the Department of Jour- 
nalism, In pursuance of a master’s 
degree. 

H. O. M. Stack, of Brooklyn, N. Y., 
succeeds Dr. W. L. Anderson as physi- 
cal director. Several changes will be 
made In the gymnastic work this 
year. All Individual work will be 
discontinued, everyone being required 
to do class work. Strenuous work 
will be superseded by gymnastic games 
and light calisthenics. 

The cafeteria will be In charge of 
Goorge R. Smith, a member of last 
year's graduating class. 

The only change in the Military De- 
partment is that there will be an ex- 
tra company for those who work, 
which will drill at the fourth hour. 

The business office has been moved 
across the hall, the postoffice now oc- 
cupying the entire office where the 
business office formerly was. The 
postoffice this year will be used as 
an information bureau, in addition to 
its regular business of handling the 
mail, parcel post packages, etc. A 
change has been made in the mall 
system this year, students not having 
boxes being required to call for their 
mail instead of taking it out of the 
box themselves. 

Jiames Parks. member of last 
year's graduating class, and who has 
been playing baseball with the St. 
Louis Browns this summer, will have 
charge of the University Y. M. C. A. 
this year. The work in all the other 
colleges and departments will re- 
main the same as last year. 

THE COLLEGE 

MAN’S HONOR 

Princeton’s “Honor System” Puts 

"Exams” in the Hands of the Stu- 
dents and Avoids Any Crib- 
bing Scandal. 



(From Princeton Press Bureau.) 

Can you in reminiscence recall the 
examination room of your school days? 
The stern teacher watching like a 
sleuth for an unnatural move of the 
idle left hand, the boy at the neigh- 
boring desk whose answers are fine- 
ly noted on his white cuff, the detec- 
tion and removal of one who was not 
clever enough to avoid the teacher’s 
eye — all these mean “examinations” , 
at one time in America’s educational 
history. Even today perhaps this has 
not entirely disappeared. 

Those who have left the walls of 
Princeton University in the past twen- 
ty-two years, however, have a very 
different recollection of the dread 
“examination period.” It was in 1893 
that the Princeton honor system was 
established, and in the Interval since 
that time it has become to be re- 
garded as Princeton’s “most sacred 
tradition.” 

Here is how it works. The students 
file into a class room for the examina- 
tion, find their questions and tablets 
and take seats wherever they desire 
(usually they bunch together in 
groups with friends, although there 
are some who like to work alone). 
The number of students at one ex- 
amination varies from three to almost 
two hundred, but the conditions are 
the same regardless of the number. [ 

Is there no professor? Oh, yes 
there is always a professor, some- 
times two or three on the platform. 
They are there to answer queries 
and to look over their morning news- 
papers. Usually the queries are all ( 
presented within a half hour of the 
start of the examination, which is to 

I 



last three or four hours. Then one 
sees the professor’s newspaper tucked 
I carefully under his arm and one by 
jone they saunter out. Sometimes 
| there is one left on the platform read- 
jlng carefully from some material that 
he has brought along to pass an hour 
I or more, but as a rule there are no 
[faculty members In the Princeton 
classroom for a considerable period 
■of each examination. 

As to the students — the honor svs- 
tern gives them absolute freedom. 
They are permitted to go in and out 
of the room whenever they wish. 
Sometimes they go to their dormitory 
rooms to read the morning mall, 
sometimes they take time off for 
luncheon in the midst of ar» examina- 
tion and then return to resume work 
on the questions. Quite frequently 
two or three of them go away for a 
fifteen-minute walk to "dust, away 
the cobwebs.” In the room itself one 
frequently sees a whispered chat in 
one corner while two or three stu- 
dents take a few minutes off. There 
are few students who do not leave 
the room at least once during the 
three or four hours. 

At the close of the examination the 
student writes and signs this sentence 
or one similar to it: 

“I pledge my honor as a gentleman 
that I have neither given nor received 
assistance during this examination.” 

This constitutes the , Princeton 
man’s trust and it is not violated. ' 
"Impossible,” says some one. It is 
truly impossible that in twenty-two 
years this pledge should not have 
been broken and in some cases there 
have been violations, though these 
few have usually been among new 
inen in the University. 

The whole operation, even to the 
penalties for violation of the honor 
system, is left in the hands of the 
students themselves. Part of the 
plan makes it a breach of honor for 
a student to fail to report any viola- 
tion of the pledge which may in any 
way come to his notice. The court I 
which sits on the cases of violation is 
composed of six students, the four 
class presidents, and two others, the 
leaders of the undergraduate body. 
This body investigates every case 
with absolute secrecy and in case of 
conviction provides a very quick exit 
from Princeton. The reason for a 
man’s removal is never known to the 
student body. This committee on the 
honor system is a very efficient body 
of young men when it need be, but 
it must be said that in recent years 
its sessions have been held at very in- 
frequent intervals. 

Said the Daily Princetonian, the j 
student mouthpiece, a little while ago | 
in an editorial on the “Honor Sys- 1 



tern”: "The unqualified success of 

the honor system during Its twenty 
year* of existence ha* been due to a 
manly spirit and high sense of self- 
respect throughout the undergraduate 
body. To outsiders thl* method seems 
almost too Ideal to exist, but to those 
of us who have experienced Its ad- 
vantages there la not the slightest 
doubt of its sucoess. The honor sys- 
tem is sincerely believed in by every 
Princeton man, and as Princeton’s 
most sacred tradition, it is an institu- 
tion of which we are Justly proud."

GREETING8. 

, T~ 

Far the first time The Kentucky Kernel greets you under kts new name. 

The KArnel will attempt no apologies for this hasty issue nor put forth any 
promtyps os to what these pages shall contain in the future. It only asks you 
to remember that the ones who put forth this sheet are not full-fledged news- 
paper men and women, but mere students like ourselves, with the same duties 
and responsibilities and, incidentally, the same fallings. 

The key note of the policy of this paper will be strict impartiality as 
nearly as we can make it. The news set forth in these columns will be treated 
In accordance with its importance and the amount of space available, whether 
It be turned in by the President of the University or by the meekest Freshman 
who treads the campus. 

In the very beginning of this venture. The Kernel asks the co-operation 
of every man and woman within these halls. Only a few persons can have 
the opportunity of seeing a Blue and White football team on the field; only 
a few can come here and see the various workings of the University itself; 
but every high school in the State and many persons and institutions out- 
side of the State, peruse these pages each week. It is very often through the 
news publication of a University that outsiders form their opinions of the in- 
stitution itself. 

The Kernel's staff can not make this paper one which will reflect credit 
upon “Kentuckv” without YOUR help. If you know a bit of news or hear a 
good joke or witticism, turn lit in. It will help mightily. And don’t be in too 
great a hurry to knock. 



UNIVER8ITY DINING HALL. 



Elsewhere in these columns will be found a story concerning the Univer- 
sity dining hall. The dining room, or “mess hall,” is a worthy institution 
and should be patronized by every student on the campus. 

Meals are served under University supervision, at an absurdly low rate, 
and everything is done that makes for the comfort and accommodation of 
its patrons. There is no profit to the institution connected with the project. 
It is strictly a student benefit organization, whereby good and wholesome 
food can be procured virtually at cost 

A method of assuring the success of the enterprise has been adopted, 
which is, however more or less unusual. Students have been advised that 
patronage of State Hall will be compulsory to those who room in the dormi- 
tories. It remains to be seen whether a compulsory boarder will be a satis- 
fied boarder, however ideal conditions may be made for him. It might have 
been a better plan to recommend the institution to the students, present its 
advantages, and put forward its claim upon their support, thus preventing 
any criticism that restrictions had been placed upon the matter of personal 
preference.

+ SQUIRREL FOOD. ♦

Herbert Graham has requested The 
Kernel to publish a statement which 
will “put him right with the students.” 
He says that when lie is seen riding 
in the Public Safety auto, it isn’t be 
cause he lias been guilty of some 
crime, but that he is merely perform- 
ing ills duties as a reporter for The 
Herald. In the opinion of The Kernel 
that is a serious enough offense in it- 
self. 



Alter looking at the sign of a local 
tailoring establishment, which por- 
trays two young men and has the in- 
scription, "You can look like me for 
35 cents,” all that we have to say is: 
•‘Buddy, what it takes to look like 35 



cents, you’ve got it." 



The Lexington Herald naragrapher 
comments on the fact that man-eating 
sharks have appeared in droves off 
Coney Island. If all the storieB we 
have heard about that delectable place 
are true, we don’t know but what we 
would like to spend a few weeks aa a 
shark in those waters, although we 
don’t know how much of our time we 
would spend annoying the “he-male” 
bathers. 



In the society columns of a promi- 
nent newspaper we notice the follow- 
ing statement in the write-up of a wed- 
ding: “During, the ceremony low 

music was played.” Probably “In My 
Harem,” "When Mother Locates the 
Rolling Pin and Lauds on Pa.” or 
something of the kind. 



Shakespeare says:' “Men have 



died and worms have eaten them, but 
not for love.” But then who ever 
heard of a worm doing anything for 
love? 



Things to Worry About 

The Kentucky Association has in- 
stalled a new $6.00 combination mu- 
tuel machine at their local track and 
has had it in operation during the 
meet now going on. 



Names Is Names. 

Franklin Corn Is the editor of The 
Kentucky Kernel. 



When some of the young men about 
town come up to you and shako you 
affectionately by the hand, slap you 
on the back and otherwise make love 
to you, you can take it for granted 
that they are planning to give a sub- 
scription dance. 



“Germans at Standstill,” reads a 
headline in one of our big dailleo. 

Just so it’s a still. 

J 

After reading the opening address 
of the Republican candidate for gov- 1 
emor, our Superintendent of Public 
Education has In all probability lost 
faith in the old adage, “There is no 
Morrow.” 



Now the authorities say that all of 
the dorm inhabitants must attend the 
State Fare. 



Which reminds us of the time worn 
saw, “you can drive an ass to college 
nit you can’t make him think.” 



DON’TS FOR FRESHMEN. 



Don’t fail to buy your campus tick- 
ets early. 

Don’t delay in purchasing a uni- 
form. Your country may need you 
at any time. 

Don’t decide too early upon which 
fraternity you will join. You might 
set in with the wrong “bunch.” 

Don’t fail to mention at every op- 
irtunity what high school you attend- 
ed. That makes the Seniors look upon 
you with awe and respect. 

Don’t wear a hart or cap while on the 
campus. It is too much trouble to 
raise it to the multitude of female ac- 
quaintances you possess. 

Don’t be bashful. Everything goes 
up here. If you see a girl who is a 
delight to your eyes, just make your- 
self known. 

Don’t get any information from pro- 
fessors. Consult the Seniors. 

Don’t be timid. Assert yourself. 
Remember that a University’s Fresh- 
men are its greatest assets. 



DONT FALL FOR THIS. 



“I’ve been working hard all sum- 
mer." 

“This book’s as good as new. You 
can have it cheap.” 

“Yes, I intend to study hard and 
cut out all the frivolities this year.” 

“It would be easy for me to make 
the team, but I can’t spare the time.” 

“I would be a Senior this year, but 
tiie faculty put one over on me.” 

“Of course I remember you; I Just 
can’t think of your name.” 

Ted — 1 understand your wife’s a 
good cook. 

Wed — She’s heavy on biscuits. 

A farmer in Wisconsin killed a 
chicken with a snowball. Down here 
they throw highballs at the dears. 

Bones — still in the tinning bust- 1 
ness? 

Jones — Solder. 



HUES 10 VUtfE 
FRESHMEN'S HMSS 



Faculty Arranges to Keep 
Tender Meat Out of 
Upper Class Claws 

No, dear Freshman, you need not 
fear for those curly looks a-wavln’ in 
the breeze. Your crowned pate Is 
safe. The Phrenzled Phaculty, in its 
wisdom and mtght, has declared that 
the boys will not be permitted to do 
anything which Ir not lady-like and 
genteel, and any one caught in an act 
that might be construed as rude, will 
be a candidate for disaster at the 
hands of the official executioneer, who 
will do his work thoroly after the cus- 
tomary hemming and hawing have 
been finished. 

In order that none may say that 
the Information bureau of The Kernel 
has been derelict in its duty, here Is 
the complete list of resolutions passed 
recently by the Phaculty for the guid- 
ance of Freshmen and others who may 
be classed as humans. These rules 
were furnished thru the agency of 
The Kernel’s beauty editor, who is 
now in Patt Hall yard getting his next 
week’s story. Here they are: 

Prelude (with slow, snaky music). 
The Phaculty desires to compliment 
the students for being here. The nu- 
merous Freshmen are especially to be 
commended for their courage in leav- 
ing home and mother, and in the opin- 
ion of wise men, the tender ones 
should be cared for and nurtured by 
those who are older and have already 
demonstrated their non-klllability by 
a year or more in the dormitory. 

1. Hair shall not be clipped. A 
Freshman is ugly enough with it. 

2. In order to make the University 
more home-like, students are required 
to retire to their beds or bunks or 
triple-deckers — as the case may be — 
at 8 p. m. each night. Students who 
wish to study later than this may be 
given a half-hour extension at the dis- 
cretion of the Commandant. 

3. It has been reported that some 
students often stop to converse with 
the co-eds. This has been noticed sev- 
eral times on the campus. The co- 
eds are here to study, and hencefroth 
all such conversations are taboo. 
Male students are permitted to con- 
verse but not in groups of more than 
one. 

4. Students will be permitted to at- 
tend one picture show a week, provid- 
ed that they go on Saturday afternoon 
and the films shown are of a distinct- 
ly moral or religious nature. Croquet 
will be permitted on the athletic field 
but not on the Sabbath Day. 

5. The exceedingly rough practice 
of flag-rushing is foitoidden, also the 
tug-of-war, which has been indulged 
in for several years. Last year sev- 
eral Sophomores were wet and a large 
number were attacked by cold feet 
during the tug. In lieu of this amuse- 
ment the Phaculty suggests that a 
pink tea contest be held to determine 
the supremacy of the lower classes. 
Each class will select twelve mem- 
bers to represent it and the twelve 
who pass the oolong most gr^pefully 
will be declared winners. No con- 
testant shall drink any of the tea, 
under pain of disqualification. Tea is 
very stimulating and also has a mis- 
leading color. 

6. Students who take nourishment 
at State Hall are required to chew 
each piece of meat eighty times. After 
this much maBtlcatlon it is believed 
the meat can be swallowed or carried 
home in the vest pocket with entire 



safety. 

7. Other rules are unnecessary. 
The Phaculty will make special rules 
to fit each individual crime aside 
from the above provided It can catch 
the criminal.

lished by its predecessors. 

The class of 1915 has been very 
successful in establishing itself quick- 
ly and successfully in the engineering 
world. Letters have been received 
from each member of this class tell- 
ing of the future prospects and the 
past successes. These letters are very 
interesting and only lack of space pre- 
vents The Kentucky Kernel from 
printing them in full. 

J. T. Oelder, who is located with 
the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, 
at Fort Wayne, Ind., writes that he 
and his wife are delighted with Fort 
Wayne and are getting along admir- 
ably. He started with the “Pensy” on 
the 19th of June in the boiler shop 
wielding a ten-pound sledge for eight 
or ten hours at a time to the tune of 
something over thirty cents per hour. 
Oelder came to the University of Ken- 
tucky from Rochester, New York. 

M. C. Batsel, who came to the Uni- 
versity from Fulton, Ky., is with the 
Western Electric Company, Haw- 
thorne Station, Chicago. He is very 
enthusiastic over his future prospects 
and says that he is continuing his 
studies along with his “manual 
labor.” 

L. B. Evans is with the C. A. Dun- 
ham Company, of Marshalltown, Iowa. 
He is working for a vacuum heating 
concern and compliments the Univer- 
sity of Kentucky on the excellent 
training which he received here, es- 
pecially in his thesis work, as it is a 
valuable asset in his preesnt work. 

Carlyle Jefferson, who came to 
State from Louisville, is at present lo- 
cated with the Armstrong Cork and 
Insulation Company, Pittsburg, Penn. 
He is “much pleased with the outlook 
for a successful future.” He says that 
he soon will be transferred to the 
sales department. 

T. F. Haynes is located with the 
Pennsylvania Railroad Company at 
Columbus, Ohio. He says the pros- 
pects for big things are bright and 
that on every side men are talking 
about the return of "good times.” B. 
C. Parker, a graduate of the 1916 
class, is located with the same com- 
pany.

T. F. Elchhorn, of Cynthlana, Ky., is 
with the Westlnghouse Air Brake

is an expert on making diaphragms 
for the eighteen-pound shrapnel and 
say* that the worst feature of his 
nork is that the ammunition he makes 
goes to the Allies. 

T. E. Bolling, also a ’15 graduate, Is 
located with the American Blower 
Company, of Detroit, Mich. He re- 
ports that he likes the work and was 
| “put on the Job” five minutes after

K P. Howe, of Ellzavllle, Ky., is

that it all depends upon the man as

P. D. Hawkins, of Lexington, has | 
been with the Remington Arms Com-

he is in love with his work, and is not ;

advice "to the man who is about to 
enter college," and says for him not 
to plan to become a mechanical en- 

I 

gineer unless he expects to work “five ; 
times as hard as he ever dreamed of 1 
working in high school." He also ad- 
vises students in this department to 
get all the practical Bhop work they 
can in the summer. 



HENRY KOLBE. 



Unfortunate are they, indeed, who 
cannot find in the daily association 
of their fellow-students an inspira- 
tion, something to emulate, or some- 
thing to admire. Henry Kolbe was 
born in a land where education of 
the poor is a crime and the shadow 
of religious persecution falls heavy on 
many wretched homes. One by one 
he surmounted these barriers of ig- 
norance and oppression and became 
a student in the gymnasium (high 
school) of Warsaw, Poland. Finish- 
ing the six-year course in four years, 
Kolbe came to the United States and 
became a student of State Univer- 
sity Just before the war started in 
Europe. He is now a Sophomore in 
the College of Mechanical and Elec- 
trical Engineering and has not only 
supported himself, but has kept up 
a high standing in his class room 
work ever since he entered the 
school. Being a modest youth, he 
doe snot tell his fellow-students that 
he learned the English 1 anguage 
without an hour of Instruction and 
that he was reading Sir Walter Scott 
before he had ever left his native 
land. He does not boast of the fact 
that he can speak French, German, 
Polish, Russian, English and Hebrw 
as well as read Latin and Greek. 

MoBt of us in school have lived all 
our lives in the bright sunlight of 
freedom, Indeed, our education has 
almost been thrust upon us, yet, how 
many of us can Bpeak a single for- 
eign tongue? Henry Kolbe has only 
demonstrated again that verything is 



easy for the man who cannot believe 
that he was intended to live forever 
In the rut in which environment has 
placed him. 



MINING NOTES. 



The undergraduate students of the 
College of Mines and Metallurgy are 
returning to their college filled with 
enthusiasm from their very interest- 
ing and profitable vacation spent in 
the mining and metallurgical districts 
of the United States. They have re- 
ceived valuable training and experi- 
ence in gold mining, copper concentra- 
tion, and efficiency as well as engi- 
neering construction, and coal mining. 

The impression that these young 
engineers have made with managers 
of the various companies is most sat- 
isfactory and In every case the man- 
agement has asked them to return at 
the close of the present college year, 
and in several Instances the young 
men have already received offers of 
permanent positions after graduation, ; 

S. J. Caudill spent the better part 
of the summer at Jenkins, Ky., mak- 
ing a special study of conditions de- 
termining the best method of mining 
the Elkhorn By-Product coal seam. 

“Red” Jones, the gold miner, who 
has Just returned from Victor, Colo- 
rado, is disappointed that Cal Schlrm- 
er and Louis Ware have not returned 
from Morenci, Arizona. Jones thinks 
the trouble is they hesitate to drop a 
salary of $105.00 per month, but he 
expects them to Join the Junior class 
within the next two weeks. Eyle and 
Hume spent their vacation in con- 
structing the largest coal conveyor 
in the world at Sprigg, W. Va., and 
Schwant has had excellent practice in 
mine operation and coke making at 
.lenham, Ky. 



The Sophomore miners have also 
had a good summer of practical ex- 
perience. 



The department has an increase in 
Freshmen over last year and they are 
of the kind that make “live wires of 
high voltage." 

Miners’ Get-Together Meeting. 

The first meeting of the Kentucky 
Mining Society will be held in the en- 
gineering room of the Mining Engi- 
neering building, beginning promptly 
at 7:30 o’clock on the evening of 
Tuesday, September 21. 

Every student matriculated in the 
College of Mines and Metallurgy is ex- 
pected to attend. Matters of great im- 
portance to all will come before the 
meeting. 

S. J. CAUDILL, 
President. 



“JIM” 

The following verses by a University 
student, which appeared in the Lex- 
ington Herald this summer in an issue 
published on the day following one of 
“Jim" Park’s victories, are especially 
appropriate in view of Park’s defeat 
of the Philadelphia team on Tuesday 
by a score of 12 to 4. Incidentally, 
this is “Jim’s" third start in the ma- 
jors and his third victory: 

“You’re something of a pitcher, Jim, 
In pinches you’re a Son of Swat, 

And have I failed your fame to hymn? 
To put it briefly — 1 have iiot. 

“This morning then another lay 
I'm forced to pen, am I to blame? 
Know, ye fans, that yesterday 
Jim Park grabbed another game.” 
— McClarty Harblson.

The bacterial count of the Kentucky

the lowest counts attained by any of

WEEKLY BULLETIN 
IS TO BE RESUMED. 



Taking up the work where it was 
left off last year by Miss Margaret 
Cassidy and Miss Mildred Taylor, the 
University Bulletin will be continued 
this year by two students majoring 
in Journalism, yet to be selected. 

The University bulletin proved to be 
of so great service last year that a 
small appropriation was arranged to 
meet the expense of publication and 
Dean Miller, of the College of Arts 
and Science, allowed a credit each to 
the editors who take charge of the 
work. This little one-sheet paper 
publishes each week a digest of in- 
ternal activity at the University, de- 
voting its energies chiefly to the brief 
announcement of meetings and Uni- 
versity events and in this manner 
keeping the various departments and 
students in touch with each other. 

The local newspapers on numerous 
occasions last year did the publishers 
the courtesy to republish its contents 
in full, thus giving to their readers a 
complete calendar of University 
events.

CAMPUS RESOUNDS 
WITH MARTIAL TREAD 



First Drill Duty of New Collegiate 
Year Brings Out Large Number 
of Youthful Warriors. 



State University campus was alive 
Wednesday afternoon with embryonic 
soldiers and the earth resounded with 
the reverberating tread of marching 
men. 

As is the annual custom, battalion, 
squad and company drill was taken 
up at 3 : 30 and for an hour the doughty 
Freshmen, clad not in the habiliments 
of war, but in their summer togs, 
marched and counter-marched and 
walked on each other’s feet, while the 
genial September sun brought per- 
spiration in copious generosity to 
faces that seemed serious enough to 
bring renewed assurance to Uncle 
Sam that if the worst comes he can 
depend on them to do their share in 
defense of the flag. 

One of the well nigh impossible ac- 
complishments of campus life this 
year is to induce Lieutenant Under- 
wood to relieve a student from drill, 
a duty in the prosecution of which 
he is receiving hearty approval by the 
faculty and authorities. Battalion of- 
ficers for this year were announced 
last spring.
