The Military Ball has long been
one of the events looked forward to
by students of the University. Since
its Inauguration on the campus
several years ago it has held a position which military officials have
been pleased to call"the outstanding social event of the year". Its
annual association with the anniversary of Washington's birthday,
adds a glamor and an air which no
other social event has been able to
acquire. Plans this year have been
made with an Idea of making the
ball slmlllar to those held at major
military posts on the same occasion.
Ralph Piatt and his
band, the Kentucklans, will furnish
the music for the dance. Striking

U. K. MAY ANNEX
State Legislature May Give
The University Power To
Ooerate the John C. C.
Press reports during the past two
weeks have mentioned a bill that
has been introduced in both houses
authorizing the University to accept
the John C. C. Mayo College plant
at Palntsville as a gift from the
people of that city. Under the proposed bill the plant would be operated In the future as a junior college under the direction of the.
"Since the introduction of this bill
great Impetus has been given the
movement by some of the most
prominent political and educational
leaders of Kentucky, both Democrats and Republicans, and it is
confidently believed that the bill
will become a law and that the
junior college will be established at
Palntsville, thus carrying out the
wishes of eastern Kentucky's foremost citizen and founder of the
college, the late CoL John C. C.
Mayo, who spent a small fortune
and much time and thought in an
effort to establish a permanent seat
of learning at Palntsville where
mountain boys and girls too poor
to attend colleges or universities in
larger cities might obtain an edu
cation at home at a minimum cost."
Under the Junior college plan,
students from that part of the state
can obtain an education at a lower
cost than at any other seat of
learning in distant cities, a fact
which should add impetus to education in the mountain districts.
No final action has been taken on
the proposed bill, but supporters
feel confident of its success.
The Registrar of the University has officially announced
that all classes will be dismissed
tomorrow In celebration of the
anniversary of George Washington. Students are warned, however, that the customary "one
tenth" will be Imposed upon all
students who cut their last class

credit for the seasons work Just
laugh it off.
Should Kentucky lose, there will
be no alibi. George Yates, who has
been warming the bench during a
greater part of the season while
Milward played the pivot, will work
