THE KENTUCKY KERNEL
A KENTUCKY 'SONG
Members of Phi Mu Alpha, honorary musical fraternity on the campus have taken upon themselves the
work of preparing and publishing a
University of Kentucky Song Book.
This book when completed will contain all the songs of the University
of Kentucky as well as songs representing all the fraternities and sororities on the campus. In addition to
this it will contain some representative songs from other universities and
This is a praiseworthy
ing on the part of these young men
who are interested in music The ven
ture is not one that has as its object
the making of money for individuals
since the book will be sold for only
enough to pay for preparing and pub
lishing it. Any surplus that might
arise will be used by the fraternity to
promote the cause of music at the
university. The whole project is un
der the direct supervision of the de
partment of music of the University
of Kentucky which assures a book
worthy to bear the name of the Uni
versity of Kentucky.
The young men who are publishing the book, lacking in funds with
which to have the book printed, have
been forced to resort to advanced
sales. They are sending out letters
to a large number of interested
alumni asking them to purchase a
copy of the book in advance of publication and also giving them the advantage of a lower price. This University of Kentucky Song Book is. a
book that every loyal Kentucky man
and woman should own. The alumni
should also encourage the work of
these young men and support them in

U. K. Song Book Will
Bo Published at Once
Alumni Are Asked to Take
Advantage of Special Price
According to an announcement in
The Kentucky Kernel of last week a
University of Kentucky Song Book
will go to the printers within the next
few days. Contracts already have
been drawn and will be let at once.
The song book is being sponsored
by Phi Mu Alpha, honorary musical
fraternity, and will be sold for $1.50
a copy. It will contain all University
of Kentucky songs, two songs from
each fraternity represented on the
campus, one from each honorary fra-- .
ternity, two from each sorority, well
known songs from other universities
and other songs for college gatherings. It will be attractively bound
and will have a blue and white cover.
The price of $1.50 will only be open
to those subscribing in advance for
the book. After publication it will be
sold for $2.00.
The fraternity is making an especial effort to sell 1,000 copies of the
book before publication to insure its
success and for that reason the price
has been reduced for the present. Any
alumnus who desires a copy can obtain one by writing to Cyrus Poole at
225 Ormsby avenue, Lexington. The
book will be published and delivered
before the close of the present
of $17,500, which addedto the income
received from the interest of the land
scrip bonds would make an aggregate
of all the incomes of all the institutions of higher learning together in
Kentucky at that time. However, it
was expected, and the result justified
the expectation, that the income from
the half-cetax would increase year
by year as the wealth of the Commonwealth increased. The principal opposition to the half-cetax came
from the adherents and friends of the
old Kentucky University. It was hoped, however, as time passed on and
the angry feelings excited and the
jealousies' which had begun already to
develop, would subside! This, however, was not to be. Quoting from
the jubilee address which I made on
the fourteenth of October, 1916, "the
denominational colleges formed the
nucleus of an opposition 'which grew
rather than diminished and the members of the late General Assembly
which had voted against the tax stimulated, upon their return home, the
hostility to the college, and the pulpits of the Presbyterian, the Baptist,
the Christian and the Methodist rang
with the 'iniquity' and the 'injustice'
of the tax and made it an issue in the
next election. It was quite apparent
that when the next General Assembly
should convene, the existence of the
tax would be imperiled, with the odds
strongly against the college."
In the autumn of 1881, the synod of
the Presbyterian church, which met
at Danville, adopted a resolution condemning the tax levied for the benefit of the colege and expressing their
determination to oppose it, in coopera
tion with Kentucky University,
Georgetown College, Wesleyan University, Bethel College and Central
University, when the next legislature
met, and to endeavor by all means
possible to procure its repeal.

the eighteenth of November, 1881.

The annual University of Kentucky
banquet, which will be held this year
in the Kentucky hotel m Louisville,
April 21, promises to be the largest
and mos't interesting in the history
of the banquets. The menu and pro
gram have been made up with care
and both give evidence that the af
fair will be both enjoyable and in
structive. There has been a distinct
change in the program this year in
that it has deviated from the regular
form followed in years gone by. There
will be three speakers who are in no
way connected with the University of
Kentucky. The pain now is to alter
nate; naving one year a program
made up as the one this year and the
next year one made up ot university
alumni and officials.
The program is as follows:

and the meeting of the General Assembly, it was thought would scarcely
leave time for a reply, and thus public opinion would in a great measure
