When They Lose to Cincinnati With the entire Zoo fighting them, the Wildcats lost their third straight basketball game last Friday night, by a score of 28 to 18. The game was exciting thruout with Kentucky first on top and then on the bottom. Cincinnati had a team of veterans who knew how to play basketball, Haehnle, Goldman and Watkins playing best for the Ohio quintet. COMPARISONS ODIOUS There are comparisons in life that are odious. The spirit of Captain Kidd, or of one of the Borgias, would rise in its grave to object to a comparison with a certain white elephant now a resident of Holland. Billy the Kid, of New York, would go "on a tear" if his second story attempts were mentioned in the same paragraph with the The 'Cats played in their usual form efforts of one Wllhelm to rob France. up until the last few minutes when Yes, such comparisons are odious.

EIGHT TO BE CHOSEN FOR BEAUTY SECTION Swain May At test Devotion Friday Afternoon at 3:30 Love-Lor- n Eight of the world's fairest women well we might as well have said eight of Kentucky's fairest will be selected from the girls of the University Friday afternoon at 3:30. The pictures of th,e eight will constitute the beauty section of this year's Annual. For many years the love-lorswains of the campus have raked said campus with a fine toothed comb to secure votes for this or that favored face, and doubtless the gentle reader has been approached many times already by Just such canvassers who have the charms of their ladies catalogued and at the tongue's end. This or that girl has the prettiest eyes of any on the campus; this one has all the charms of a queen; in fact the zealous fellow will inadvertently call the girl a queen in his excitement. This girl will have this charm and another will absolutely eclipse them all, until the poor Fresh man, if there be an unsophisticated one in this blaze age, will begin to be lieve that every girl in Kentucky is a potential rival of tho Venus. If he is a Kentucklan this belief will not bo a new one to him. But in spite of tho fact that each and every fellow in school will have his own particular favorlto, tho hard task of selecting tho eight who are considered fairest must bo accomplished. Lot there bo a splendid attendance, a spirited rivalry and a bounty of chivalry for each entrant and tho plans of the Kentucklan staff will be realized. n Long 'bout ten, one is privileged to awaken in all propriety and to casually dress one's self, while digging one's toes into the thick carpet, premeditating violence to the biscuits and ham and eggs and coffee and butter and apple sauce which mother has prepared.
