A vagrant spark, in the form of the Portland report of a "Revolt of Youth" lecture, published in the daily Bruin, caused the conflagration. Regent Edward Dickson has ordered the Bruin hermetically sealed in hope of suffocating the incipient blaze. As editor of the Los Angeles Express, Mr. Dickson should be qualified to pass judgment on the impropriety of news. .And as former editor of the Daily Californian, he should know the just scope of college papers. As a regent of the university he considers Judge Lindsey'a views on youth unfit for campus consumption. All this is easily explained, but Mr. Dickson's remedy is far more dangerous than the evil which he attempts to stamp out He tampers with democratic student administration and establishes with one gesture, He usurps authority from the Bruin a despotism. editor and takes advantage of regental privilege to enter by the back door and clamp a censoral muzzle on the Bruin. If successful, this act of the California regent undermines the entire undergraduate structure of Without discretionary rights, tho student editor a marionette dancing to the whimsical tags of any meddlesome passerby.

Their belief made the team strong. and they They had, just simply had, to "get right." "get right" ( if the team is a winning one, the members get all of the glory;. if the team is a losing one, the coach gets all of the blame. But The "Kernel feels that this condition docs not exist at the university, but rather it is confident that faculty, alumni, and students appreciate ..the splendid work done and being done by Head Coach Harry Gamage and his assistants. It is not necessary to heap praises upon Kentuckys His work speaks for itself, and the satisfacmentor. tion he must derive from knowing he has done his job and done it well, mut be all of the praise that a man of Coach Gamage's calibre desires. But The Kernel does think also that it is better to throw roses at a man rather than on him, and so it is taking this opportunity to tell our coach how much the university appreciates his ability and his work in the .The task confronting the football season just past. Illinoian would have terrified a lesser man, but Coach Gamage shouldered it manfully and came out of the season with flying colors. The Kernel is confident that it is voicing the sentiment of the entire student body 1n assuring our coach that it is behind him solidly and will continue so to be, win or lose, while he stays at Kentucky. And may that stay be a long one!
