Klrkman James Morgan j Busness Manager Grant Campbell STAFF . Advertising Manager Irel Hodges Allle Mason Circulation Manage THEATRE RUSHING The Kernel regrets that topics such as the subject of this editorial merit the space allotted to it in the columns of this issue. Unfortunate, indeed, is it that the president of a university must, as a result of hte action of a small group of students who have failed to grasp the full significance of college life, for the second time in the school year has had to ask men to discontinue a practice pardonable only in youths many years their junior. President McVey has had just such an unpleasant experience, and has asked that The Kernel bring the matter to the attention of the student body. After a recent basketball game several students took a Kentucky victory as an excuse for "rushing" local theatres, to avoid paying the price of admission. This is not a time for mincing of terms. There is no justification whatever for any student who, under the false guise of school spirit, does anything which brings discredit to the student body and university of which he is a part. Theatre managers in Lexington have been more than friendly and cooperative in university activities. Freshman exuberance during the football season has met with complete understanding by these men. That there is a limit to such affairs, however, is certain. The incident of last week Is especially regrettable because mem- bers of the group rushing the theatres were for the most part sophomores, Juniors and seniors many presumably ready to enter upon life careers. It Is neither the purpose nor the wish of The Kernel to preach or prophesy in this matter. As an organ of the student body, however, It feels that the one course open at this time is that of an expression of regret for such happenings. The Kernel realizes that the great majority of the student body joints in a pledge to President McVey to cooperate in this matter of maintaining friendships for the university, and believes that they are few indeed who do not heartily condemn this unwarranted action of the very meager and misguided minority. twinkling, merry eyes, and a nose much too salient. Lincoln 47 years old, the fighting lawyer, the determined congressman, viewed the finished product, and with his spontaneous wit probably commented something to the effect that he should never permit a profile. Two years passed. Another artist caught a glimpse of Lincoln and gave the world still anHere other study of the matured statesman. was Lincoln, wolfish eyes, with sharp, homely features, with a steel clamped Jaw; a Macbeth, a Napoleon, n Paracelsus, skyward among men, outwitting them, outspeaking them, outstrlvlng them. In 18G0. during the presidential campaign, was advised by his friends the president-eleto have more suitable photographs made of himself. He must smile, they said. Lincoln smiled publicly for the first time in a year, The smile brought a change to his face and softened the tempered steel somewhat. The smile did not remain lonpf, however. Shortly before his inaugural address, Lincoln visited Washington in order to greet his friends there, and to be entertained by his predecessor in of fice. His political enemies shunned him. Sc ward wrote him a letter of resignation a Secretary of State. The ambitious sunflower that was Lincoln turned reluctantly on a stal setting sun, wart stem, faced the blood-re- d and wilted. A photograph of hmi at this time exemplifies a wrinkled brow, staring, pensive eyes, a drooped mouth agape above a quivering chin. The war of the States cast a shadow of perplexity over the most important years of Lincoln's life. During the conflict he was pic- tured as an old man, a thinker, a futile philos opher, a kindly old gentleman with a wreath of scraggy wniskers encompassing his once ambitious chin, and obliterating the sadness of a sunken, desolate face. His eyes alone retained the fire of the eager, fitful man that he once was. They were compelled to shine. The wool was spun; it was for him to weave it. Lincoln wove the wool. The melancholy commenced to lift like mist from a crater lake. He reincarnated himself into the merry-eye- d, large-nose- d, large-eare- d, grave-face- d Lincoln of period. In time the veil would the pre-w- ar drop at his feet. In time he w5uld regain his individualistic spontaneity, but Clotho, Lache-sl- s, and Atropos had not ordained it so. They contrived; they screamed into the ear of a maniacal actor. We forbid, they yelled, that the world shall ever see Linclon wtlh a face that is not clouded by some conflicting and irritating screen. It was done. Lincoln's hair never grew white. The whiskered wreath of sorrow did not give place to a snowy semblance of purity of mind. He was not born to smile like other men who smile for campaign pictures and do not smile again. So Whitman wrote: "O powerful western fallen star I O shades of night O moody tearful night! O great star disappeared O the black murk that hides the star! O cruel hands that hold me powerless O helpless soul of me! O harsh surrounding cloud that will not free my soul! KENTUCKIAN ELECTION Wednesday, February 18, there will be a meeting of the junior class for the purpose of selecting the editor and business manager of the 1932 Kentuckian. At this time it will be the duty of every member of the class to attend the meeting and to vote for the person most capable of filling the position. The position of editor of the class annual is an important one. The Kentuckian is a creat memorial to the class for which It stands; it is a vital document of the achievements of those Who have come here and worked toward a ' worthwhile end. Although real students do not work for publicity, nevertheless, It Is the duty ' of those who know them to let others know of their merited successes and achievements. There are many qualifications which the editor of the class annual should possess. He should understand something of printing and make-uHe should be able to get the proper effect for his publication from the literary and aesthetic point of view. He should have a thorough understanding of news value, what constitutes achievement, and a proper sense of proportion, in order that he may be able to give to each student the prominence he merits.

Their tenderness is still a marvel to the moderns. The sweetness of thought, the fragility, the delicacy, the sheer beauty, which even time cannot dull or cheapen, proves an Inspiration to the gross materialists of today. The delicate theory of designs, spun in fine lace, was found in the shy sentiments of old fashioned times. There has always been something sweet and quaintly old fashioned about St. Valentine's day, it seems to hearken back to the days of shyness. There is always a feeling of the fragility of sentiment attached to this day. Out of all of the days In the year this seems to be the one which has been chosen to be a reincarnation of things tender and delicate, the rejuvenator of illusion. Fragility seems to be the keynote of the day. Valentines are sent from friend to friend merely as a gesture showing that materialistic, or not materialistic, we arc still sentimental. They are one of the most pleasing traditions observed today. The funny ones arc always a source of amusement, the frilly, sentimentally lacy ones arc always slyly thrilling. All of them have a quaintly old fashioned air about them, like the fragrance of a conventional garden. They have a way of bringing momentary tenderness, at least, to the most hardand a startling weakening of hearted co-ethe stronger sex. They wreck havoc with the heart and likewise with the head. Yet, they still are the tenderest of all greetings, something to bundle together and put away among yciir sweetest memory tokens. Lace Student Will Speak to International Relations Group Through arrangements made by Professor Vnndcnbosch, of the political science department, Pan Politikon, student organization for the purpose of promoting the study of International relations on the campus, has secured ns the convocation speaker of next month Dr. A. J. Bnrnouw, of Columbia University. Holland has been designated by Pan Politikon as the subject of study for this spring. Dr. Barnouw is a native of Holland and a graduate of the University of Leiden. Later he taught there, and at the Gymnasium in The Hague. He was also the Dutch correspondent for "The Nation" for a number of years. He came to this country about eight years ago, and has since held the Queen professorship of Dutch history and art at Columbia. The two subjects which Dr. Barnouw has chosen, and on which he will speak successively In the morning and afternoon of March 10 in Memorial hall, arc "Dutch Political Parties" and "The International Position of Holland." Dr. Barnouw visits Holland every summer, and has traveled in the East Indies. He is the author of the book "Holland Under Queen Wllhelmina," which came off the press a few years ago.

They are in mourning and they are praying for reckless walks; furthermore, we think that it Is a very noble cause, but not a hopeless one. We ask, If the student body Is a subject for experimentation? One might interpret such obstacles as those presented to test the following concepts: The actual power of concentration of the average collegian; the thrill a professor gets when taking vengeance on a tardy student; the causes and the results of "athlete's foot;" the effect on the logic of the average college person of pointing out some of the bumps along the road of life or the proof that " a rolling stone gathers no moss." If we are not the subject of experimentation someone should contribute a friendly gravel roller to break in our walks. Even in this year of depression hundreds of shoes are more expensive than a day's service of a gravel roller. Besides, we are tired of rocking along the walks and much prefer to walk along them.
