Mayo College Press reports during the past two weeks have mentioned a bill that has been introduced in both houses Legislature, Kentucky the of 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. University. Herald says: Palntsville 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.

Edwards Templin, editor of the expose sneet, declared yesieraay that the forthcoming edition of the Kat is expected to be the worst one In the history of the university, in as much as all of the news contained In the paper this Issue will be truth ungarnished with fiction. He pointed proudly to the slogan of the Kat for the forthcoming paper, saying that the "never tell a lie edition" simply means that the truth is going to march proudly across print ed pages. There are a number of interest ing and entertaining articles that will hit the spot, he said. For instance, there will be the story of the Sigma but that would be tell ing the story. Then there Is the picture of the regimental sponsor which is expected to prove a strik ing likeness. One of the best stories of all, the editor said, will be that of Barnes and His Beef Trust Beauties.

VIRGINIANS REMEMBER LAST YEAR'S DEFEAT Classic Struggle Will Be the Last One for Kentucky Until Tourney By Vernon D. Rooks The Kcntuck Wildcats will write "finis" across the 1930 basketball schudle In the Euclid avenue gymnasium Saturday night at 8 o'clock. The Generals of Washington and Lee, second In the Southern Conference and probably one of the seeded teams in the Atlanta tournament, have accepted the Invitation of Coach Johnny Mauer to attend tho closing ceremonies-an- d a gala occasion it should be. The Generals have 10 Conference victories in line and the Big Blue is anxious to make their nine victories change to the same number. Washington and Lee can be beaten I The Blue Devils of Duke University proved as much Wednesday night when they smeared the undefeated conference record of the Virginians into oblivion. Wasnlngton and Lee had previously bowed to West Virginia, 50 to 34, in a tilt. But when you figure that the Generals have a grand total of 14 wins to their 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 even harder, if this Is possible, than the rest of the Wildcats. Yates can Jump, he can shoot, and he's got the goods. Coach Mauer will start this sophomore at center, flanked by Pisgah Combs and either Louis or Splcer at the forwards. Captain Paul McBrayer and Lawrence McGlnnis are capable of dropping monkey wrenches and long arms and bodies into the working of the. General's offensive machine. On Wednesday of next week, 10 Wildcat players, manager, coaches, trainers, and scribes will board a train for the southland where the Big Blue is slated to .be one of the seeded teams In the annual Southern Conference tournament at Atlanta the last of February and the first of March. Probable lineups for Saturday's game will be: Kentucky Pos. W. and L. McGlnnis, Lou F Cox Combs F Borasch Yates C Williams McGlnnis, Law G Honna McBrayer G.. Wood (Capt.)
