PRESIIMEN m KERNEL KENTUCKY University of Kentucky R. O. T. C. This change was made for two reasons, one that in 1021 the Band was equipped with a complete set of Army band instruments, the other that the band could be handled through the military department. This was n fortunate change for the dis cipline of the band was still very lax. Since coming under the supervision of the military department Hint defect has been remedied, and the band from that time on has been a strictly dis ciplined military organization. Sponsor System Inaugurated In the Spring of 1921 the band in stituted the system of sponsors, the first one was Miss Margaret Smith, who is now Mrs. Thomas F. Borden In the Spring of Goldsboro, N. C. of 1922 Miss Smith was succeeded by Miss Martha Pate, now Mrs. E. M. Hcavrin, of Hartford, Ky. In 1924 Miss Pate wan succeeded by Miss Mar-ci- a Lamport of Lexington. Up to this time there had been no set term of office, nnd a girl from any of the four classes was eligible. This was changed in the spring of 1D25, when the candidates were limited to the Sophomore and Junior classes, and the term of service was set for one year only, Miss Willy King of Lexington, held the honor for the first time under this new ruling. Miss King was succeeded by the present sponsor, Miss Charlsoy Smith, of Owcnton, Ky., in February. First Drum Major Concerning the Drum Majors, the first of which we have any knowledge was Mr. Dan R. Baugh of London, Ky. He was succeeded in the spring of 1922 by Mr. Raymond Kirk, who is now with the Miami Herald of Miami, Florida. In the fall of 1922 the job was passed to Mr. Ed. Ganz, who was succeeded at the end of the first semester of the school year 1924-2- 5 by Al Wiemann, the present Drum bnnd. Major. On September 15, 1920, Sgt. Jack Kennedy was assigned to serve on the military staff of the university, and in 1921 he voluntarily started helping Professor Lampert with the band. In 1924 Sgt. Kennedy was given complete charge of the organization, and the excellent work he has done in regard to the band is acknowledged by all. Many Trips Taken This Year This past fall the band has taken more trips than any other year, their first one being' to Chicago. Following Meals 50c Plate Lunches 25c missions and certificates of eligibility for commissions to graduates, and tho final review of the regiment under the officers appointed for the following year.

It hns not yet been decided whether a prizo will go given for the manual of arms competition this year. The regiment will be inspected by the Wnr Department board sometime this spring, probably in April or May, though the date has not been definitely set. This inspection will determine R. O. T. C.

That band also accompanied the team to Danville, when Kentucky plnyed Centre, nnd to Charleston when Kentucky met V. M. I. The band has even greater ambitions for this year. They hope to go to Louisville sometime in March, and again broadcast their inspiring music from station W. H. A. S. Further, they have expectations of mnking a concert tour of three days through the state. This, however, may not be possible, due to a lack of funds. Den-ha- l.
