tennis last Thanksgiving day, Tracy virtually saved the day for the Wildcats
against the shifty Tennessee Volunteers by snngging two passes and bucking
through the line for n total of 18 points, without which Kentucky would have
been totally lost in the deep sea of defeat.

WILL PLAY INDIANA OCTOBER 9
Kentucky will meet another Western Conference
Indiana next October 9, according to a report from the annual
meeting of Big Ten officials in Chicago last week. The game came
as a result of Coach Murphy's presence at the conference and Kentucky's splendid showing against Chicago last October 3.
It is understood that the Wildcats mentor is dickering for a return game with the Chicago Maroons but as yet nothing definite has
been given out regarding this contest.

Eastern Normal over at Richmond will construct a new athletic field
during the coming spring and summer which will be ready for the Eastern

probably meet some of the best teams in th state next year. This move
is to be commended.

NET SEASON TO OPEN SOON
The basketball season will open December 19, a week from tomorrow,
against Depauw University at the university gym. As a result of the new
southern conference rule, forbidding an athlete from competing in football
and basketball in the same year, a great hardship will undoubtedly be worked
on the team through the loss of Gayle, Mohney, Paul Jenkins and Ray Ellis.
It is hoped that some provision may possibly be made for these players but it
