The composite eleven taken from the selections of all the coaches forms an almost unbeatable team and is the one that will be recognized as team by the football the fanatics of the State. Personally, the sport writer of the Kernel never did have any use for picks 'of any kind since he chopped his foot with one of the ax variety one day trying to dig up a big rock. But anyway the picks of the coaches are all well made. The State of Kentucky has had some 'wonderful players this year and some who will go down In gridiron annals as the best in their places in the history of football. The University of Kentucky has it all over the State of Kentucky. The naked truth (this phrase should bring a mental Image before the eye of the reader) is that the Wildcat orr aggregation ganization is an itself and every man on it deserves recognition. In fact the sport writer wanted to choose an team htaself and put the down. Ho told whole Kentucky line-utola to the editor of the Kernel, who ia seriouB minded and can't appreciate it as a thing of humor. So we won't get to pick our team. Thus the composite team will have to be accepted althq Ye Scribe still feels that the football fans of the State should have been given the ben all-sta- (Continued an Page Five) Who are the ten most popular coeds at the University of Kentucky? The Kentuckian voting contest, to decide who will be the ones lucky enough to get their individual pictures in the feature section of this year's annual, will be held In the University chapel Friday morning, and every student who is interested in seeing some particular friends honored should be present at the regular time. As announced before, each student who attends will be given a ballot with ten spaces, on which he or she will write the names of the ten s favored. Each vote must be cast sep arately; that Is the ballot must con tain ten names. No one will be allowed to cast ten votes or even two votes for one girl. The ballots will be deposited in boxes at the doors and no one who falls to go to chapel to morrow morning will be allowed to vote. Each student will be given one and only one ballot and any one trying to repeat will be given the limit of the law. The editor of the Kentuckian is rather mysterious concerning the program for the morning, but it is under stood that he has prepared one that will make up in quality what It lacks A speech or two from In quantity. members of the staff is expected. and All students, including all members of the faculty will be alPopulowed to vote in the contest. larity is the only criterion for voting, and all girl students are eligible for places.

The lighter fowls are not doing as well now as at first, while the others are rapidly improving. g ADDED TO ORCHESTRA DEPARTMENT. Since the organization of the symphony orchestra considerable interest is being shown In all music departments of the University, due largely to the work of Director Cover. A library, recently added to the orchestra department contains the complete scores and parts of the symphonies of the Classical School in ad dition to a number of other works. These are open to all students inter ested.

So the Kernel man asked Cue Early, who is good on deep stuff, to tell him just what Doctor Tigert meant. He said it was this way, that while the score was a tie the game was really a victory for Kentucky and a big one at that. In downing Tennessee, Kentucky snatched the claims of the Knoxville team for Southern championship out of their hands and that is all she could have done by defeating the Knoxville men. It was also a big feat when one considers that Tennessee had pulled the noses of the great V&uderbllt and also wallowed Sewanee all over Waite Field. The game was a fitting climax to a great season of the Wildcats. A season only marred by the Vanderbilt nightmare and there was some excuse for that. The defeat of Mississippi A. & M. and the scoreless game with Sewanee made the Wildcats a nonerasable name. Story of Tennessee Game. Eleven valiant warriors fearfully marched onto the field against the ter rible Tennesseeans. The same eleven, without a change being made, walked off full of bruises but bearing their heads as high as any team that ever won a glorious victory. The heroes were: Crutcher, Heick, Brittain, Dempscy, Hlckerson, Murphree, Klnne, Rodet, Grabfelder, Fay and Mcllvaln. The game was a tearing contest In which both sides battled in sticky mud. The fact is that since the Wildcats were playing open field and the relying Tennesseeans on their strength and size, a dry field might have made a different story. Kentucky almost won the game at. one time, when Rodes caught what appeared to be a fumble and raced for a touchdown. But Referee Henry said It was not a fumble but an Incomplete forward pass and that ended the argument. "Doc" was the big star. The Southern papers have been burning with his praise and the Tennessee fans are still dreaming bad dreams about the way he tore down the field. He outklcked Hatcher who has been called by many the best punter in the South, and tli row forward passes straight to the mark. Mcllvaln was ulso a bright light. Ho intercepted several forward passes and played the role of life saver to
