The possibilities of good to be derived from such building as the proposed memorial structure are unlimited. Various clubs and campus organizations could thus be given homes. Students could be given better opportun ity to associate wtih each other. The University would be better advertised by reason of provision for certain attrac tions and conventions that meet in Lexington. This paper sincerely hopes that there will be no slip between contem plation and erection of the memorial now under consider ation. Sixteen blue stars have turned to gold on the Uni versity's service flag. Sixteen of the best men who ever matriculated in the University have passed to our Valhalla. To show its pride, revere the honor and perpetuate the memory of those sixteen heroes, the University of Ken tucky can do nothing more fitting than cause the memorial building to be erected. from Bhoro to shore, Visiting many ancient places where my youth lived once before.

One morning last spring, in a nasty drizzle of rain, friend's of the unit, including almost every student in the University gathered "God-spee- d at the Southern railway station to wish them spent in training at and safe return." A few weeks were Camp Taylor. The unit was then ordered overseas. The return of the members of this unit has been heralded thruout Central Kentucky. Many students of the University are personal friends of one or more members of the unit. Several of the young men who served with the Base Hospital in England will probably return to the University next September. Welcome home! In behalf of the student body, the Kernel welcomes the entire unit back to Kentucky. To former and future students of the University it extends warm and particular welcome. Further, it offers congratulations to each member for the important and unselfish part that he played in the war. MEMORIAL BUILDING. The University of Kentucky will honor the memory of those sons who gallantly sacrificed themselves on the altar of humanity in defense of their country. This was the unanimous sentiment expressed by the Board of Trustees in its last monthly meeting. Acting upon the report of an unofficial committee composed of four men active in University affairs, the Executive Committee declared itself in favor of the erection on the grounds of a commodious Memorial building. In various ways during the European war, sixteen fearless sons of old Kentucky met death. They died heroes. In the opinion of the Kernel no memorial more fitting and, at the same time, more useful could be erected than that proposed and favored by the committee. Would those sixteen men who, in their prime, unselfishly offered and freely gave themselves to America and her ideals, feel greater honor, if it be possible that the dead yet share in the experiences of the living, to know that their memory had been perpetuated by a granite block or by a useful building such as that under consideration ? If warm blood were to course once again thru noble bodies, if vision should come once again to their sightless eyes ; if flush of youth could return to their wasted cheeks, would they favor useful or useless memorial? Plans for the memorial are but in the making. A tentative outline of the uses to which the building would be put was published in last Thursday's Kernel. It was seen clearly that if it materializes, and it is a cherished hope of the Kernel that it will, the most urgent and pressing needs 'The Kernel's Koachman observes read today that a revolution is start "A worm won't turn if you step on it ing in Egypt.

The Opera-hous- e has been engaged so that as many as possible of tho citizens of Lexington may have an opportunity tt hear him. He has won distinction as a social economist, and has added to his reputation by his gift for leadership, his power of oratory and his advocacy of progressive measures. He is thoroly acquainted with conditions in Russia, and has the power to present those conditions as few men have. Colonel Robins spoke at the University about two years ago under the auspices of the University Y. M. C. A. His addresses on this occasion give students cause to remember him and desire to hear him again. CURRENT EVENTS AT PHILOSOPHIAN The first of a series of programs on Current Events was held at the Philosophian Literary Society Wednesday night, March 26, at Patterson Hall with Misses Julia Burbank, Lucy Fannie Heller and Lucy Dean, leading in the discussion. Among the subjects were "The Japanese-AmericaControversy," "The Monroe Doctrine as discussed at .the Peace Conference," "The Condition of the Industrial Girl in Russia." It is the aim of the program committee to devote one program each month to the discussion of outstanding articles appearing in the leading magazines. This is to help to eliminate the deplorable lack of information of the students, caused by the lack of time for reading carefully the newspapers and magazines. Four or Ave speakers are chosen each month to give especially prepared discussions, after which the meeting is thrown open to general contributions, in which every member is urged and expected to participate.
