THE FRESHMAN SPEAKS.
As a favor to tho now students, especially the Freshman, wo would like to
suggest that President Patterson speak
at chapel some morning. Wo have
never made even tho platform ac
quaintance of Dr. Patterson, in our
months of school life. "The Grand Old
Man of the University," is still Just a
name to us. We know about him, of
course, about his world-widtion, and his wonderful record here
in Kentucky, but we knew that much
before we came to Lexington. Now,
wo would like the real thing. Will the
Chapel Program Committee please
Since there seems to
the campus, and the art of beautifying
is becoming a vital factor, I don't see
why it is that a particular spot that
might be of a very beneficial use,
should be neglected. This particular
spot happens to be situated just back
of the dormitory and might present to
the mind of the "dreamer," an ideal
spot for a useful purpose. Why is it
that this specified piece of land could
not be cleared away and beautified so
that it could be converted into an attractive place for an outside theatre
for the Strollers? With a little planning and enough work, this dream
could surely be turned into a reality
and not only would it convert that part
of the campus into an attractive and
beautiful spot, but it would be a source
of pleasure to the students and during the hot summer days it would
make the biggest grouch forget the
heat, flu and whatnot and convert him
into a real optimist. In this way it
would better the general atmosphere
and would be a
Strollers would have some convenient
place to display their talent and furnish entertainment to those interested
in dramatic art. I hope that this idea
may attract some of these "dreamers"
who are conceiving such wonderful
ideas for the future and with other accomplishments, may be realized and
be an added improvement.

the animal lacks reason. He has faith
