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.
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
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.

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.
