PublUhed every Thursday throughout tho College year by the student body
of the State University of Kentucky, for the benefit of tho students, alumni and faculty of tho Institution.
The winners of the oratorical contests conducted by
the Patterson and Union literary societies are given
medals in appreciation of their victories and as mementos of important events in their lives. The winner
of the championship of the school in oratory and the
representative of the University of Kentucky in the
State contests receives the satisfaction of having won.
