PAGE TWO' THE KENTUCKY KERNEL IIIIIIIHIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIilllilllllllllllllliH ALUMNI PAGE Subscribe for THE KERNEL ALUMNI EDITORIALS A KENTUCKY 'SONG BOOK 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 colleges. 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 their efforts. A copy of the University of Ken-- i tucky Song Book would make a most acceptable gift to some classmate or fellow alumnus.

U. K. Song Book Will Bo Published at Once Alumni Are Asked to Take Advantage of Special Price Reduction 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 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: Toastmaster Frank L. McVey. Building for Kentucky H. H. Cherry. The Meaning of a University De gree President George Colvin, Kentucky as Seen from North Car olina Superintendent George Howard. Music during the dinner hour will be furnished by the Men's Glee Club of the University of Kentucky and by Miss Lucretia McMullen and Miss Josephine Frazer, students of the university.

This manifesto was addressed to the people of Kentucky, but was especially intended for the members of the General Assembly which would convene in Frankfort on the twenty-eight- h of November. The paper was adroitly and ably drawn, embodying much that was germane to education as then existing in Kentucky. Its appearance was so timed that it was expected to reach the members-eleof the General Assembly at their home, before arriving-iFrankfort. The brief interval intervening between that date 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 be formed before the legislature convened. Wtih this conviction,I determined to remain in Louisville another day and answer it before my return. The manifesto of the colleges appeared in the issue of the nineteenth, and my reply on the morning of the Twen tieth of November, and the same post which carried the attack, carried in most cases, the defense. The assailants were happily placed on the de fensive and kept there. SUITS PRESSED 35c 3 HOUR SERVICE ct n (To Be Continued) LOST Lexington Laundry PHONE 62 Rent a STUDEBAKER LIST at Greenville, Ky.
