Wilson, '13 THE FOOTBALL SEASON Thursday the Kentucky football team closed its season by bowing to the mi?ch superior eleven from Tennessee byt a score of 20 to 0, a score which is by no means humiliating when the strength of the Tennessee team is taken into consideration. The eleven from our neighboring state, last Thursday, was a team that could have defeated almost any team in the country. Overshadowed by a teaiA far heavier than all we could muster, the Wildcats fought one of the best battles of the entire season. Every graduate, former student and student that saw the game was pleased with the showing made by our eleven. r1- Saturday before Thanksgiving followers and supporters of the Blue and White saw a game that brought joy to our hearts. Joy, to a great may, for the first time in years of meeting our traditional foes, the Centre Colonels. The Wildcats not only repaid their followers for the seven point defeat of last year but ran up en.ough points to even up the results of several years before. Fifty-thre- e to nothing is a big score but there was no score that could have been too big for those who have loyally followed the Wildcats for years. - At the beginning of the season our team was forced to face several serious handicaps. There was insufficient material out, there was not enough weight distributed among those who were' out and then there wasa complete change in the coaching sysAdded to all of this was one of the heaviest schedules tem. in our history and one of the hardest in the South. Coach Gam-ag- e with all these obstacles confronting him set to work to mould a team. From the first game on they displayed improvement. They were as They hit harder, tackled surer and ran better. They had fit physically as hard training could make them. They only stopped absorbed a maximum of spirit and fight putting all they had into the game when the final whistle blew; ' i .

In fact the scores give us credit for a season far more successful than those in In our humble touch with the team had, reason to expect. opinion Kentucky football fans have much to be thankful for He has inaugurated a system at in Coach Harry Gamage.

The editor of this column has long been known as one of the Again this year we are going outstanding "Next Year Men." to talk next year but with a feeling of certainty this time. Often before it has been, to a large degree, from loyalty. Kentucky football is just now beginning to take its place in the growth and development of the University of Kentucky along with the other great and more important improvements. Homecoming this year is a hard subject to write a news story about. This, because it can truthfully be said that there were two homecomings this year. One, the formal and prearranged Homecoming Thanksgiving day and the other on, November 19, when we met and defeated, so decisively, the Centre Colonels. There were almost the same number of returning alumni from the University of Kentucky as there were Centre alumni at the game in Danville. Graduates and former students of years gone by went to Danville to see Kentucky triumph over Centre, many of them for the first time. It was the Centre homecoming. Thanksgiving, with bad weather predicted turned out to be an Ideal football day. Both sides of the stadium werejiacked with supporters of the Blue and White and the Gold and White. The crowd, as at every homecoming was colorful. Both universities were represented by a good football team, an ardent and large group of supporters and two crack bands. Both trying to outdo the other along each line. Kentucky won on the last two but was forced to bow to a suNaturally perior football team. enough the Kentucky supporters outnumbered the Tennessee followers. It goes without saying that our band was by far the best. The number of Homecomers ,thi3 year was larger than in any recent year. Almost every class was represented and they were here from every part of the world. Main street in Lexington from the Union station to 'Limestone street was like one huge reception. Everyone met everyone and as usual the hand shaking and back slapping was continuous. The people of Knoxville, ever genial and gracious hosts, were accorded similar courtesy by the ictizens of Lexington. Following the game the visiting alumni and a great many of the visitors from Tennessee were guests at a reception given by President and Mrs. McVey. In the evening the usual Homecoming dance was given by the Lexington Alumni Club. The visiting alumni, visitors from Tennessee, and both teams were guests of honor at the dance. A good orchestra was engaged and approximately 1,500 attended the dance which lasted from 9:30 until 1 o'clock.
