SCORED BY KITTENETTES EUROPE NEEDSAMERICAN AID, M'VEY DECLARES IN LAWREHCEBURG SPEECH International Situation Diicusicd By University Head Before Men's Club HAS PRAISE FOR LEAGUE r "The United States will ultimately be forced to participate in European affairs" was the prediction made by Dr. Frank L. McVey, president of the University of Kentucky, in an address to the Men's Club Tuesday night at the Christian Church in this City. Expressing the beilef that America will be forced into the European situation as the result of economic developments, the University of Kentucky head said', "I am wondering if we have not lost valuable time in waiting this long. We were compelled to take up the burden in 1917 when a grave military 'situation forced our participation in the World War. We will again have to take up the burdea in a some what different way to aid in the preventing of the econmic collapse of Europe". "If the Unked States had taken part in the League of Nations and become a signatory .power following the Versailles treaty our presence would have influenced the. situation for better," the speaker said in response to a question as to America's entry into the League would have aided in the solving the European problem. After the meeting 'had been called to, order by Dr. J. L. Toll, following dinner, President McVey was introduced by the Rev. T. H. Bowman.

"PersonalHy-magnetic and powerful is required to hold the unbroken attention of 800 students who are tired, hungry, and reestless but this Mr. Smith did with perfect ease. It is not by highly dramatic narrative, by funny stories, nor yet by or clever characbrilliant word-pla- y terization that Mr. Smith makes his deep appeal to the human heart but by truths and by the presentation of the problems of real life life as every student knows .it. He does not antagonize by attacks upon modern social custom nor by hackneyed of the condemnations degrading vices of the age but giving the University students credit for being thoughtful and sensible men and women, he speaks from a vast and varied- store of personal experience. Mr. Smith spoke in chapel Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning, and Monday and tytaesday evening to mixed audiences; on Tuesday evening to men only and on Wednesday afternoon at Patterson Hall to women only. The attendance was good at every meeting. Mr. Smith is assistant to the president of a large factory in New York and is not an evangelist as many peo ple seem to think. He has made sev eral tours of the world and has spoken to audiences of very sort. The last tour, from which he hae only recent ly returned, was made under the aus pices of 'the Federal Council of the Churches of America. He is now on campaign of all the state a lecture universities of the Unked States under the direction of the Y. M. C. A. If only more speakers had Mr Smith's knowledge of the relation of modern American life to Christianity and dealt with it as frankly and hon estly as he does there would not be so much unbelief and so much criticism of religion among college students. All who did not hear him speak have missed a wonderful opportunity and those who did hear him iwill never forget his charming personality nor the wonderful message that he left behind. plain-spok- LECTURE AT CINCINNATI SCHEDULE IS ANNOUNCED LAW Participation in World FederaFRED B. tion Will Clear European Muddle, Claim.

The scantily clad athletes are out in the gym going through their paces and getting in condition for the event.

Lafferty through whose unselfish and untiring work the Law Department was brought to its present high standard. Not only does the publication comment upon and give praise to Dean Lafferty, but it also portrays the excellent work accomplished under his supervision. The Law Department was established in 1908 and graduated its first class of 23 in 1910. The total number of graduates from that time to the present has been 213. Of this number 80 per cent have made their homes and practiced their profession in their jjative state. Many of these are com monwealth s attorneys, county and city attorneys. The fact that so many of these young lawyers have remained in Kentucky shows that the state is an excellent field for this work. In the Legislature of 1922, the Uni versity was represented by twelve graduates. Five of these were from They were the Law Department. Joseph F. Bosworth, Emery Frazier, Harry Miller, James Park and Berl Boyd. Boyd's distinction is novel as he represented his county and was at the same time a senior in the Law Department. Graduates of recent years are being persuaded to announce for the Legislature and other responsible offices throughout the state in the election of the coming fall. finalISSest to d night by the score of 18-The displayed the best form that they have shown this season and had little trouble in completely outclassing the fighting Cardinals in the last two quarters. The playing of Miss Blanding, Kentucky forward, was the feature of the game. Miss Blanding accounted for 14 of the 18 points scored by Kentucky. Miss Harrison was a power at back guard, while Miss Ligon ran the floor effectively. For the Louisville five, Miss Borgman and Miss Moeller were best. These two lasses caused the Kentucky guards quite a bit of trouble with their fast passing. Louisville got off to a one point lead 'at the start of the game when Miss Moeller scored a free .throw but Miss Blanding soon put the Kitten-ette- s ahead by a field goal .from the side lines after ringing two free throws. This gave Kentucky a lead that was never diminsihed by the Cardinals. Starting the second half with the score 4 in favor of Kentucky, both teams battled hard but the skill of the Kittenettes told when they ran up their score to 16 while the Cardinals made but one free throw. The final period found both teams worn and the scoring was slight although the play was still fast. Kentucky owes her victory to the shooting of Miss Blanding and the guarding of the Kittenette guards. Louisville was unable to pass through (Continued on Page five) 6.
