last spring, in a nasty drizzle of rain, friend's of the unit,
including almost every student in the University gathered

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.
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
