GRESHAM INITIATED The Kernel wishes to make a correction concerning a story which appeared In Tuesday's edition or this week. In the Tuesday edition lt was written that Austin H. Ores-huof Eddyville, was pledged to Delta Sigma PI. Gresham was not pledged to Delta Sigma Pi. Beta Gamma Sigma, honorary commerce fraternity for men, was the organization to which Gresham was pledged. Instructor Is Final Authority in Excusing Students From Classes In a statement to The Kernel Wednesday President Frank L. McVey interpreted several provisions of the new absence rules which have been questioned by members of the student body and the faculty. Dr. McVey pointed out that the clause, "No student shall be allowed any cuts In any course at the University of Kentucky," Is merely a statement of a practice which has been followed at the university for the past 15 years and that the holiday absence rule is simply a change in penalty. Students are excused under the present rule by the prjfessor Instead of the dean, President McVey said, "Statement for the Kernel: In 'view of the fact that certain questions have been asked by some of the students and a few members of the faculty concerning some of the provisions of the new absence rules, I wish to make the following comments: Section Six reads, "All absences shall be considered unexcused except, .when an-- excuse .Is given by the Scholarship and Attendance Committee for absences on the day immediately preceding or following a holiday." It will be noted that this section sets aside the old system of requiring a student who misses a recita tion to go to the dean s office and get an excuse. Under the new rule the student no longer seeks an excuse from the dean for his absence, but instead he goes directly to his class where he explains to the instructor why he was absent. The instructor in turn permits him to make up his work unless lt be a case where the Instructor is convinced in his own mind that the student was not justified In his absence. In such a case the instructor can report such student to the dean, but as specified in Section Four, the recommendations of both the dean and the instructor are necessary In dropping a student from a course because of absence. If a student has an absence on the day before or following a holi day he is required to get an excuse from the Scholarship and Attendance Committee In the same way as was done under the old rule. In case he Is unable to get an excuse from this committee the penalty has been changed so that Instead of substractlng from his standing he is required to do additional work. Section One of the new rules, which reads "No student shall be allowed any cuts in any course at the University of Kentucky," Is simply a statement of what has been the practice at the University of Kentucky for the past 15 years. FRANK L. MoVEY, President. December 17, 1930. SCHEDULE OF 56 MATCHES IS MADti FOR RIFLE TEAMS Fair, Square, Reasonable, and Unprejudiced" An Editorial Referring to the new absence rulings recently adopted by the university, President Frank L. McVey yesterday stated in a convocation address to the student body that the "rules place a responsibility on the Instructor to bo fair, square, reasonable and unprejudiced." This statement is much more to the point than an interpretation of sections one ELIGIBLE MEN FOR SQUADS NUMBER 59 and six, released to The Kernel yesterday by tho president. In the interpretation, he merely stated what everyone already know that under Christie, Pay ton, Florence, the new rule tho student no longer seeks an excuse from the dean for and Mantz Are his absence, but goes directly to his class whero he explains to his Instructor why he was absent.

With the exception of the University of Delaware match, 15 men shoot as contestants and the 10 highest scores out of these fifteen count as "match scores." In the University of Delaware match, 10 men fire, but only the five highest scores are counted for the record. At the present time there are 20 men competing for' the Varsity team who are eligible, scholastlcally under the requirements of the Southern Conference, to represent the university. Of these 20 men, four are team men from last year who were presented letters and sweaters by the university for hav ing urea on the varsity team In at least 75 per cent of the matches, and whose match scores during 1929 placed them among the 10 highest men in at least 40 per cent of the matches fired.

Musselman are showing unusual promise. They are all new men to the Varsity team and will probably make the team if they continue to show as much promise and good scores as they are now doing, it was announced yesterday. (Continued on Page Four) Post Office Gets Christmas Orders Miss Carrie Bean, head of the university post office, received the following letter yesterday from G. R. Warren, postmaster, concerning Christmas day mall: "I have to advise that the post office department has Issued an order to the effect that all work in the post office will be reduced to a minimum begining at midnight, December 24, and continuing until midnight, December 25. In accordance with this order there will be no delivery of mall on Christmas day and the post office will be closed as tight as it is possible for us to close lt. Service at the station may be governed accordingly, and we wish yourself and a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. "Yours very truly, "G. R. WARREN, Postmaster." "BETWEEN US" IS M'VEY'S SUBJECT Responsibility to Be "Fair, Reasonable, Square and Unprejudiced," Placed on Instructors at Convocation Referring to the new absence rales recently adopted by the university, President F. L. McVey stated in his "Between Us" talk at the December convocation at 10 o'clock, Thursday morning, in Memorial hall, that the rides place a responsibility on the instructor to be fair, square, reaHe sonable, and unprejudiced." also admonished the student body not to think of their education as "& series of little chanks" to be depesitesVta the bank-o- f tbe registrar's off tee with Mr. Glllis, toe banker: bat to consider education as a whole. The convocation was opened with an invocation by Bart N. Peak, followed by a number of Christmas songs which were lead by Prof. Carl Lampert and sung by the assembly. In his opening remarks, President McVey commented on the tendency of seniors and juniors to shift the burdens of meetings to the freshmen and sophomores, which fact, he stated was unfortunate and accounted in great part for the lack of enthusiasm and interest in many Responsibility projects. school should be assumed by juniors and seniors, he said. Citing attempts to bring in a spirit In the buslarger iness of the university, President McVey announced that the campus book store and the post office were ter the student body was represented by a member from their group being separated, In which mat-wh- o sat with the bookstore committee. In connection with the was bookstore the announcement made of a plan to buy and sell second hand books to be put Into effect as soon as possible. Regarding the new absence rules, President McVey made the statement that he believed the student body was not so materially disturbed over the matter as "certain campus agencies" bad undertaken to show. He further cited sections one and six and confirmed his Interpretations which, he said, he had released to The Kernel for publication for this issue. Dr. McVey stated that the new absence rules were an attempt "to treat the students as men.'1 "One of the things that students at an educational institution should get in their minds is that there are certain fundamental principles to be conformed to," Dr. McVey on page four) Intramural Competition to Continue Following Fall Program Completion Company "C" Defeats Team from Freshman Class in Volleyball KENTUCKYSHOWS Symbols of Christmas Introduce Holidays of Yuletide at University Again senior engineers light firecrackers in classrooms and again ettes write to the home town boy friends. Again jewelry dealers make the rounds of fraternity houses and again the dear brothers steal your tuk shirt for Beginning tomorrow at noon students at the University of Kentucky will leave for the tiny villages and city slums from which they came. On their arrival at home they will be greeted by fond parents who, after thorough scrutinlzatlon of the product of their union, will wonder if Willie is not becoming just a llttlo smart alecky, or If Bessie is really yielding to the forces of vice which they believe rage rampant in the modern university. The students will merely transfer the scene of their social activity from the fraternity houses and hotels of Lexington to the country clubs and private homes of the home town. Never have students ut the uni versity regarded Christ mus with that anticipation which wus so delightful in childhood and never have they believed that they receive any actual benefit from the spirit in which a gift is given if the tie Aunt Amy gives is unwearable then Aunt Amy may us well have a card. Christmas is another holiday a holiday which Is rendered more delightful by the material gains which accrue to a student during the period. It is seldom more than that. May the ettes apply a brighter tint to their already crimson lips and may the eds absorb more of tho poison which profanes the name of Bucchus. May the good and the bad little girls and boys receive the customary visitation of that rather likeable old person whom we were so fond of in childhood and may they all return to school In time to conform to the new absence rule.
