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.
McVey has had just such an unpleasant experience, and has asked that The Kernel bring
the matter to the attention of the student
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
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.

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.

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.
