To date, Auburn has played but three conference games, taking the first only to drop a double engagement to the might Tulane Greenbacks, a team conceded by many authorities to be one of the strongest contenders for the Southern basketball crowns this year. However, Auburn can be counted upon to put up their customary fight, and unless all signs fail, the 'Cats will have to keep their claws in good condition if they succeed in keeping unblemished their 100 percent standing in the S.

C. tournament, and the eligibility of each team will be based, upon its comparative standing at the close of the regular season. Coach Eklund will probably start Besuden at center, with Mohney and McFarland as forwards and Captain Carey and Jenkins holding down the guard positions. iUMP AND CROSS ""WILL AWARD CUF Trophy Will be Given to Outstanding Man in Freshman Class by Senior Men's Fraternity "WILL BE ANNUAL arise through the marriages of kinspcoplc. One of the problems most often considered is whether a man can be his own grandfather. That he can be, and sometimes is, is shown in the following clipping from a Gary, Indiana newspaper. Can a boy be his own grandfatha er? He can. The case of Jan proves it. To make a long story short: There were living here a widow and a daughter-in-laand a man and his son. The widow nlarried the son, and the daughter the old man. The widow was therefore mother to her husband's father, and consequently grandmother to her own husband. They had a son to whom she was As the son of a must be either a grandfather or a great-unclboy was one or the this other. He was his own grandfathAnd the boy was Jan. er!

Miss Turner started to cross the street just in front of her home, hoping to stop a friend who was just driving nway, and in her haste failed to see the car driven by Mr. Bricken. The blow dislocated her right shoulder and sprained her ankle. No Fault of Driver The accident was not on account of any carlessness of the driver, for he was going slowly. He lives on Wal ler avenue, only a few doors from Miss Turner's home. Dr. J. E. Rush, of the department of hygiene and public health, administered to Miss Turner's wounds.

It is very evident that New Year's evo is not the only time that college students turn over new leaves and make resolutions. A hectic semester"1' has just come to a close, bringing its disastrous results to many, while casting lights of glory on others. Those who have been classed with the former and find themselves in an situation with the registrar's office, resolve to make a standing of three the second semester, and show the professor that they can do better. Those who have come out of .the maelstrom with a standing of two or better, modestly comment on their achievement, saying that they didn't work very much and were greatly surprised. Well, it is a fair bet to say that these that didn't make their standing didn't work, and those that did, did work. None of them were surprised. Professors Running Close Race Although the results have not been make known as yet. it is certain thut several of the professors nnd instruct ors are running a close race for nrst place in the number of "E's" for the Plan to Work Out New Sys tern of Operation A meeting of the entire news staff of the Kernel will be held on next Monday, February 8, at 12 o'clock in Professor Grehnn's room in the basement of the Science building. A number of changes have been made in the personnel of the staff and it would be wise for 'the members to glance over the masthead and make sure that their name appears therein before coming to the meeting. The editor plans, at this meeting, to work out n new system of operation whereby the work will be more evenly distributed among the different members during this semester and every member is urged to be present.

At noon Wednesday, the total en rollment nt the University of Kentucky for the second semester of 1925-'21,884 students. This number includes 87 new students of which 02 are boys and 27 are girls. This year it was necessary for all new students to complete the physical examination before they could either register or classify in the uni versity and these examinations were held at the dispensary, Monday morn ing for boys and Monday afternoon for girls. The regular registration was sche duled for Monday only, but due to the necessity of the initial examination it was continued through Tuesday, also. Registration for those entering late will continue the rest of this week in the mornings from 10 to 12 o'clock. Those registering late were required to pay an additional fee of $1 for each day they were late. Collect Extra Fees All girls were required to pay an additional 50 cents for dues to the Women's Student Government Asso ciation. This amount has always been collected but due to the inconvenience Notice has been given through President McVey's office that, beginning with this semester students will be held responsible for all notices sent (CONTINUED ON PAGE them from their deans and other university offices.

Work on the building began several weeks ago, and a plan of improvements and alterations is being carried out at an estimated cost of $10,000. When completed it will furnish a complete home for the Law College, provision being made for the library, class rooms, offices, and locker rooms for men and women. The work is expected to be completed late this spring, and the building will be ready for occupation not later than June 15. Originally the home of the Experiment Station, the Chemistry building was erected in 1888. It burned in 1889, and was rebuilt later the same year. It contained the Experiment Station and the Chemistry and Science departments until 1905, when it was turned over to the Chemistry department alone. The work is being done by tho department of building and grounds, under the superivision of Mr. M. Crutcher.

The results was quite disastrous in most cases and there was a number of us which had considered ourselves to be ncgotiatin' business with the various departments on an "A" basis and found that such wasn't tho case. There was some which had been so fortunate as to intercept a large portion of overflow of eloquence and knowledge which flows from the instructor's desk on out through the door and thero was some who hadn't been sittin' next to the door and consequently wasn't sure what it was all about when they came before the various inquisitions.
