First With Total of 34 y 2 Points; Louisville Male High 
Second with 32 y 2 Counters, and Score of Other 
High Schools Bring Up the Rear 


Lexington High School took first

about one hundred high school pupils 
from all over the State were in Lex- 
ington for the tournament. Gold, sil- 
ver and bronze medals were awarded 
point winners and nearly every school 
annexed one trophy. 

Lexington got a long lead on the 
other schools in the musical and ora- 
torical contests held Thursday and 
Friday, scoring three firsts for a total 
of flfteen«polnts, and It was this lead 
that gave Morton High the necessary 
margin to win over Louisville, as the 
Falls City lads were the winners in 
the track and field events held Satur- 
day afternoon. 

Thursday's program Included the 
dramatic readings for girls, piano 
solos, and violin contests. Lexington 
was victorious in two of these, Miss

Tricky Chinese Take the 
Long End of a 6-to-4 Score 
in an Interesting Game 

In one of the best games seen on 
Stoll Field this season the Hawaltans 
won out over the Wildcats 6-4. It was 
hard fought all the way and at no 
time was the game safe for either 
team. The Wildcats led off with the 
scoring In the fourth, tallying three 
runs, but the “furriners” came back 
with three in the fifth, and three more 
In the sixth. 

McClelland, the young Springfield 
lad, started the game and flung a good 
game until the sixth frame, when he 
was touched up for several bingles.

Park made his initial appearance on 
the mound when he started the sev-

1. To be eligible for “commence-

three full years. 

2. No student shall be eligible for

the best “circus” yet. 

This year's “coicus” will include 
humorous “take offs” on everyday 
Items, a sure 'nuf minstrel show with 
end men, the interlocutor and the Inev- 
itable bones, a stunt with a menagerie 
of wild animals that will make you 
sit up and take notice, and other fea- 
tures, all of which are calculated to 
tickle your risibilities and work on 
your laugh-producing mechanism until 
vnu could take a 20-mlle ride in a 
Ford and still feel good. 

To make the circus doubly Interest-

the university have donated $100, 
which will be given as follows:

term next September, was selected

the best talent In this line in the uni- 

It will be noticed that a number of 
radical changes have been made in 
the usual arrangement of the staff. 
These changes have been made In ac- 
cordance with the Intention of running 
next year's paper on a strictly syste- 
matic and business-like policy. It is 
believed that the arrangement for 
next year will be an Improvement on 
that of the past, in that the work will 
be so divided that no one person will 
be required to do everything, but the 
work will be divided evenly among a 
number of persons. In this way, the 
paper will be improved and no one 
lierson will be over-worked. 

It is expected that the paper will be 
larger next year than ever before and 
space will be given to a number of 
new features, which will be announced 
later. One of these will be a sec- 
tion controlled exclusively by the “co-

The Henry Clay Law Society held 
its annual oratorical contest for the 
Barker medal, in chapel Monday night. 
S. S. Combs, whose subject was "The 
Evolution of Peace,” was returned the 
winner over the other candidates, B. 

D. Sartin, who spoke on "Force, the 
Arbitration of Nations,” and Thomas 
Creekmore, whose speech was on “The 
American Spirit.” Judge W. T. Laf- 
ferty, Professor J. T. C. Noe and Dr. 
J. J. Tigert were the judges, 

President Barker, who is the donor 
of the medal given Monday night, 
made a speech in which he highly 
complimented the speakers and also 
said that he would endeavor to work 
up oratory, to a higher standard, in 
the university next year. It has been 
suggested that a chair of oratory be 
established in the university, but this 
is not probable for next year. 

At the conclusion of the meeting, 
at which J. T. Gooch presided, the 
new officers of the society were in- 
stalled. D. L. McNeill was elected 
for president; F. P. Mayo, vice presi- 
dent, and Thomas Creekmore, treas- 
urer of the society next year.

The suggestion contained in the communication of "A Student,” pub- 
lished in the "Students’ Forum” of last week’s IDEA, in regard to changing 
the name of our weekly publication for one more suitable, has met with 
the approval of the editors and seems to have been favorably considered by 
the students. 

The disadvantages of the present name have been only too apparent to 
the management during the year just drawing to a close. In addition to the 
reasons given by "A Student,” that the name "THE IDEA” is meaningless 
and does not indicate the nature of the paper, the experiences of the year 
have made apparent to us certain other reasons why the name should be 
changed. Chief among these, is that when other papers quote from THE 
IDEA, even if they do give us credit, practically none of the students, who 
read their paper can tell from the name "THE IDEA,” which is signed to the 
clipping, that it was taken from the paper issued by the students of the 
State University of Kentucky. The best advertisements of a school are the 
clippings from its publications, but if no one can tell from what paper they 
are clipped, this advertisement is lost. 

For the reasons given above, we have decided to act upon this sugges- 
tion and announce a contest, the conditions of which are given elsewhere, 
open to all of the students, in which a cash prize will be offered to the stu- 
dent who will suggest the best name for our weekly publication. We would 
suggest that the name be of such a nature that In itself it will indicate that 
the paper is the publication of the students of the State University of Ken- 
tucky, and offer as examples of college papers which are properly named. 
“The Miami Student,” "The Missouri Miner," and “The University of Ne- 
braska Awgwan.” “THE IDEA” Is not a name for a college paper and It 
should be changed, but if for any reason you prefer that the present name 
be continued In preference to any other, let us know about it. by writing out 
your reasons and dropping them In "THE IDEA” box at the north entrance 
of the Main Building.

One of the busiest men on the cam-

ognized in the senior class that if you 
get John behind some project it is 
just about sure to “go through.” He 
is, what is usually termed, a "live

done during his four years at State is 
quite convincing of that fact. 

John is major of the battalion.

Recommendations Are Submitted by 
Honor System Committee and 
Student Welfare Committee. 

At a faculty meeting last week the 
recommendations of the Student 
Honor Council were adopted regard- 
ing the conduct of examinations under 
the Honor System, now In force. The 
recommendations were to make the 
applications of the laws of the sys- 
tem broader than heretofore, and to 
put the students entirely on their own 
resources In examinations. 

[ The system has been In force over; 
three years and the general sentiment 
Is that It should be strongly upheld.

41 It is not alone necessary that lumber snail be good 
in the hrsi place, but good lumber to retain its good- 
ness must have proper care and attention.

carefully handled. Some is stacked on sticks, some 
piled in open sheds and some put in enclosed build-
