SOUTHERN CHAM PIONS IN REVIEW Football Outlook Most Promising The school year of 1909 10 Is ex pected to be one of the most remark able In the history of State Univer sity and this expectation is justly founded on conditions that are the outgrowth of progressive advance ment and extraordinary development that has been constantly going on since the name of old State College was filed away in the archives of his tory past and a new life was taken on by the State s greatest educational in stitution along with its new name and more comprehensive title of State University A leader within the boundaries of her own state rapidly this institution is advancing to the foremost place among the Universities of the South and her first success along this line we hope will be the football champion ship won during the present season and honestly earned on the gridirons of our own Blue Grass athletic fields and amid the dust and mire of more tropical Southern sporting fields This is our most sincere desire our fondest ambition and it should be the one pleasure nearest the heart of every loyal enthusiastic college stu dent to see his team victorious over them all and to aid and assist in every way to make It thus victorious Our own White Guynn the man who has stood by us through storm and sunshine and w o has practically made our athletic record for the past half score years probably knows more about the coming prospects than any other person and in speaking to the writer of this article about it said The prospects for an all Southern team are better this year than they were ever before In the history of the University With the old men back in their places and the new material that is coming in everything possible will be done and und r the excellent training of Coach Sweetland we should be able to clean up with them all quot We are glad to announce that Mr Guynn will be back with us this year and that he has graciously consented to assist Mr Sweetland in coaching and training the team Mr Sweetland arrived last Monday and the practice that had been started by Manager Lowery and Captain Bar bee a few days before was taken up at once and is progressing as nicely as could be expected and everything will be in full swing by next week All of the old men are expected back with the exception of Taylor and new men are making their ap pearance on the field each day Prac tice is held every afternoon of the week with the exception of Sunday and the hours for practice as they are now arranged are from 3 30 until 6 on school days and from 3 until 6 on Saturdays About fifty men have already reported for practice and Captain Barbee is showing great pro ficiency in handling his men Among those who have already re I orted are the following Henry Ingles Joseph Shelby Bryant Shanklin George Dunlap Dick Barbee W T Johnston Frank Baker W K Threlkeld W Rodes Bill quot Theising Gaiser Geo Hendrickson Sandy quot Chambers J I C Hughes Caleb Marshall Roger Jones Joe Lewis Tiny Clark R S Webb Y Reagan Shelby Post C Earl T W Clark H Babb Bev Routt J R Mayes Manager Lowery urges all new men to report to him as soon as possible in order to equip themselves with suits and in order that teams may be selected as soon as possible as the first game will be played on the 25th with Kentucky Wesleyan Among the big games of the season will be those with the University of Alabama on Nov 6 with Illinois on Oct 9 Tennessee Oct 16 N Carolina Oct 21 and Rose Polytech Oct 30 The complete schedule for the sea son will be as follows Schedule Sept 25 Ky Wesleyan at Lexing ton Oct 2 Berea at Lexington Oct 9 Illinois at Urbana Oot 16 Tennessee at Lexington Oct 21 N Carolina at Raleigh Oct 30 Rose Polytechnic at Lex ington Nov 6 Open Nov 13 Transylvania at Lexington Nov 25 Central at Lexington Of these games we must take three fourths if not all and let every man not afflicted with game legs weak hearts corns and coated tongues put on a suit and try to make the team The Captain Manager and Coach want as many men as they can possi bly get and they will be only too glad to furnish you with equipment and give you a chance if you have enough college spirit and sand in your craw to ask for it and use it to the best of your ability And if your physical makeup is de ficient see to it that your spirit is right and do your duty by supporting the team Do not be so stingy tight and unprincipled as not to get a sea son ticket and let nothing be too good for your men who go out and do the actual work Success depends largely upon the student body and the sup port it gives to its team The men in the suits will do their part and they have the hard part so let us see to It that they do not work in vain MEDICAL SCHOOL Are We to Have One It seems that at last the plans of the friends of t he University and of President Patterson are to be real ized and that the University of Ken tucky is to have a Medical College The proposition will be placed be tore a called meeting of the Execu tive Committee and Board of Trus tees at an early date A little over three weeks ago eight or ten local physicians and four doctors from Louisville met at the Phoenix Hotel to discuss the matter lt hi August 13th a meeting was held at winch President Patterson Pro fessor White Professor W K Pat terson Doctors Holloway Clark and Pryor of this city and Doctors Coomer and Bogges of Louisville were present After talking over the pro posed addition to the University they issued he f apos lowing statement quot Friends of State University will be glad to learn that well considered plans are now under way for the early establishment of a medical de partment of the institution When this matter was considered by the Board of Trustees about one year ag gt action was deferred at that time be cause the proposition submitted by the delegation of Louisville physi cians was not satisfactory It now seems probable that a new record is to be established in that for once in the history of the world Lexington is to have the active and earnest sup port of loyal friends in Louisville in the demands she proposes to make of t lie Board of Trustees and of the Leg islature A committee composed of Dr F H Clarke and Dr Thomas C Hollo way of Lexington and Dr W F Bogges and Dr M F C apos oomes of Louisville who are interested in the establishment of a high grade medical school in this State have been en gaged for some weeks in the prepara tion of the proposition which is to be submitted to State University Board of Trustees at an early date Under the terms of this proposi tion the Board of Trustees is to have full control of the new medical school The first two years will be taught ex clusively at Lexington the last two years at Louisville With the forces of Lexington and Louisville united in this effort to establish the medical department of State L r niversity on a basis which will compare favorably with similar institutions in other States it is reasonable to expect that suecessfull consummation of the plan is but a matter of a short time Neville Society The Neville Literary Society will meet sometime next week for the pur pose of electing officers for the com ing term Quite a number of last year s best members will be with us again this year and everything bids fair for this to be the most prosper ous year iu our history

be accom plished by a wide awake literary so ciety Let us be up and doing 4 THE IDEA The Idea Published every Thursday by THE IDEA SYNDICATE of the State University of Kentucky for the benefit of the

of us are a little older many of us a little wiser and we hope none are any sadder The youthful Fresh man of last year is the sorrowful and pensive Sophomore Last year s Sophomore is this year s Junior who begins to realize how hard studies may become and to enjoy the free dom of an upper class man The Junior has become the wise and much envied Senior while the Senior of 0 is the old alumnus Many famil iar faces are absent while still more students are back to renew old friend ships We have a happy year before us and although we have more or less hard tasks to perform we antic ipate them with pleasure Let s en joy college while we can for as the Sophomore says How time flies Our college career will soon be over To Student Publications Through some misunderstanding or some other cause we can not ex plain the relations between the stu dent publications of this University last year were somewhat strained In fact it might be said that the students of one or two of the depart ments of the University were for the same unknown reason opposed to this publication We were very sorry in deed that this state of affairs existed and did all in our power to find the cause of this misunderstanding we will call it and to remedy it but to no avail The evil conditions could not be eradicated and so we gave up in despair This year we sincerely hope that all ill feeling and misunderstanding which may have been caused by the Idea last year has been forgotten For our part we will say that we are the University apos s servants What we do we do tor her benefit There is plenty of room ami to spare for all the publications of the University of Kentucky May we not all work mutually toward the up building and betterment of the University We have heard it said that t lie Idea is trying to as our informer said put the other college publications out 4 if business We hope that no one has seriously considered these ill bred gossips who to put it not too strongly lie in their very simls So gentlemen all of you who are connected with the Transit the Rec ord and the Annual believe us we speak from our hearts when we say it we are with you to the end Please remember

Taylor 1 Company Second Lieutenant W Lnrtv The Colonel is expecting about six ty or more men to the company He ought to have almost ninety to a company since all second and third year Academy men all Freshmen all Sophomores and about ninety five fizout Juniors will have to drill If the military department is al lowed money enough a camping trip will be taken at the end of the year and there will be sham battles and rifle practice during the year Also prizes will be given to the best drilled man in each company and a sword to the captain of the best drilled company each man in the company getting a watch fob All this how ever depends upon the amount of money the department is allowed The days for drill will he the same as last year that is Tuesday Wednesday and Friday The drill hour will be from 3 30 to 4 30 The uniform will be the same as the one worn last year and is to be ordered from Kaufman Clothing Co right away The cost of the uniform will probably he about The color is olive drab Commissioned officers wear leggins all others do not apos fhe officers for the year say that they expect to have the best drilling they can get out of their men and that the latter will have to pay strict attention and due respect This does not mean that they will be hard on the men The treatment given de pends upon the way the men act Anyone who tries to do will get along all right hut the fellow who gets smart and who does not try will cer tainly get the worst of the deal The best thing for a new man to do is to take an interest in his com pany and in how well he himself can drill Do not pay any attention to the fellow who says lie dots not like to drill that is no sign that you will not Do not think that the hour for drill is just an hour to be put in and that the sooner over the better This makes it harder on you Do not start the habit of skipping If you do vour officers will get down quot on you and besides you will have to squad drill on Saturdays or drill in your Junior year if you wish to get a diploma remember that you are pay ing your money to he drilled and you surely ought to want your money s worth There is nothing hard in drill ing It is simply what you make it If you take an interest in your drill you will like it and it will be easy hut if you do not take that interest the drill will he a drudgery and you will not get near the benefits from it that are coming to you Patterson Hall Every thing is hustle and hustle at Patterson Hall this week Such an incoming of trunks and new girls It is amusing to note the difference in the manner of approach of the old girls and the new ones The new girls approach the Hall with hesi tancy and an air of awe while the old one almost run up the steps in their anxiety to see last year s friends and acquaintances and just at the time they think they have stolen a march on everybody a shout from the inside announces that the new arrival lias been spied and then all the old girls who happen to have already returned leave the unpacking of trunks and all pounce on her at the same time and such greetings and wild ejacula tions as are exchanged and a hun dred questions are asked all in a min ute and nobody waits for an answer or bothers to answer anybody else s question We are all glad to leave school and Patterson Hall in June but all of us are gladder to return in the fall for Patterson Hall is the best place in the world to have a good time and school is not so bad after all Chapel Exercises The first chapel services of the year will lie held on Thursday morning There will he a general assembly of the students and the seats of the various classes will be virtually the same as those occupied by them last year On Friday afternoon the bat talion will be mustered in and be ginning on Monday will march up iti order Reports from the military de partment are to the effect that the rules for attending chapel will he more strictly adhered to this year than ever before and that those who do not attend will serve a term un der the Major The exact hour for the services has not been ascertained as yet 77 E IDEA i FLAG RUSH What It Is and Why One more Freshman class Is just now peering through the threshhold into a mysterious temple of learning Many wonderful things will cause many wonders in the wooly heads of these working Freshmen Within a month from today the convolutions of the cerebrum will enclose various rec ords which in the far off future will be fondly recalled in the minds of these now aspiring college men Will this new Freshman class have the proper grit and stamina which indi cate strong intellect and insures a healthy class spirit From observa tions so far these new men appear to be a very worthy and fearless set Certainly it requires stability of char acter to surmount a modern high school education and then unhesi tatingly wade into a hard and tedious college career For many years more than an hundred of such noble youth as these have annually cast their for tunes together at State University With no class spirit to begin with ex cept a mingled feeling of sympathy and egotistic pride they soon develop a bond of brotherly love for the whole class and a loyalty to old State which is bound to last through life But of all the events of a college life there is none that surpasses the Freshman Sophomore flag rush This annual affair has been the test of the Freshman class for several years past and this year it is a known fact that there are a number of stal wart and nervy quot Freshies who are going to audaciously unfurl the Fresh man colors in the midst of the campus so that all might know what 13 really stands for and defy the overbearing Sophomores to touch a thread of it It is generally conceded that the flag rush last fall was omitted because of a very sad misfortune A certain well beloved Freshie quot so mysteri ously departed from his comrades and his loss was such a sudden shock that it was deemed as an ill omen by the superstitious members of the class and no Freshman colors ever waved on a morning breeze save the crepe and dark bordered handkerchiefs of his classmen And not even after this prodigal Freshman had returned from the northern tour and geological trip in 10 the haunts of bleak Wisconsin did the meek Freshies dare to flaunt their flag in face of the thirsty Sophs Most of this inexperienced class are now Sophomores themselves but they will not have the advantage in a flag rush that previous Sophomores have had because they know no more about it than the Freshmen do However the present Senior class has had the experience of two such contests and the present Junior class recall with enthusiasm their one thrilling experi ence A short explanation of what a flag rush is like might add intelligence to many under classmen however by the time they have reached home Christ mas each of them could probably give a more vivid description than the writer The combat is arranged for sys tematically Committees from each class draw up and sign agreements concerning the time to begin the melee and the manner in which the flag shall be mounted This prevents any undue advantages and insures a long and hard scrimmage The Freshman flag composed of Freshmen class colors and bearing the class number is mounted on a pole in an open space surrounded by plenty of blue grass sod and all the Freshmen boys in their fighting clothes At the appointed time the well generalled Sophs charge the defending bunch and attempt by any and various schemes which are not contrary to agreement to secure the hateful flag The Juniors and Seniors are always interested spectators but never take part The most courageous acts how ever are sometimes performed by the girls of the two combatting classes They bring water to the field of battle to pour down the dry throats of their comrades and occasionally dash a pail of cold fluid on the back of some de spised enemy After the flag has been captured or preserved by some strategy that would do credit to Napoleon the conquering class in their tattering garments worn march triumphantly to town and back so that not State University but also everybody who will may have the opportunity of seeing a band of real heroes Thenceforward each Freshman knows each Freshman they are bound together as a class have won their recognition from the upper classmen and are more eager to fight their way through to the reward at the end of a college career Class spirit prods a man on that he might not fall behind his class It helps him to surmount many obstacles in college life and the only way yet de vised to get the class spirit early in college life is the test of the flag rush THE UNION LITERARY SOCIETY The oldest literary society in the State of Kentucky is the Union It dates its origin back to Civil War times In 1873 the General Assembly of Kentucky gave it a charter and 100 with which to help furnish a library Since that time the Union Society has turned out some of the most distinguished men of the Com monwealth At present one congress men and two trustees of this Univer sity are former members of the Union Among the faculty we are proud to refer to Judge W T Lafferty Prof T T Jones and Prof Geo W Roberts who were the leading mem bers during their college career Each year on the evening of George Washington s birthday the Union So ciety holds its Annual Oratorical Con test in Chapel The winner is pre sented a 20 gold medal by Robert M Allen a former member of the So ciety and now head of the Pure Food Department of Kentucky The winner of this prize competes with the winner of the Patterson Society and the suc cessful one represents the University in the Kentucky Intercollegiate Ora torical Contest which will be held this coming year at State The Union Society also gives a gold medal to the winner of the Declama tory Contest held in December of each year and half of the Intercollegiate Debating teams are always chosen from this Society The hall where its meetings are held each Saturday evening from 7 30 to 10 o clock is located on the third floor of the Alumni hall and visitors are always cordially welcomed at its meetings The Union desired to se cure the membership of all energetic college men who desire to aid the cause of the Society and enjoy the profits thereof Each week a program for the following Saturday evening can be seen in the Union Society bul letin board posted in the hall of the main building One of the most commendable fea tures of the Society is that every act ive member who graduates from the State University is also awarded a standard diploma by the Union The officers for the ensuing term are Q W Robertson president J E Estes vice president Weller re cording secretary W C Wilson prosecuting attorney Miles treas urer T W Crawford librarian and W C Shultz janitor All new men are invited to attend the meeting Saturday the 11th at 7 30 p m OPENING OF COLLEGE Bright

appreciated only by those who heard last year s club sing Mr V V Moore is at present at tending to the business of the club and any one wishing to become a member may get full particulars from him The
