HAS PRAISE FOR LEAGUE
"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
"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.

a short scripture
Lord's Prayer, Mr. Downing sang a
solo in a very pleasing manner. Mr.
Fred B. Smith of New York City, was
introduced, who addressed the students on "What is, Where is and Who
is the Strong Man?"
The praises of Fred B. Smith, companion of men and platform wizard,

of Kentucky at chapel Monday morning, the students agreed with one accord that "the half had not been told."
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
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
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
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
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.

ty, is worthy of special notice. This
edition is a memorial to the late Dean
W. T. 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
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.

they have shown this season and had

the fighting Cardinals in the last two
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

West Virginia, Ohio and Indiana will

contests from time to time. Captain
Heath is high point man of the Kentucky team with a score of 99 out of
a possible 100 fired from a prone position. All the riflemen are in good

victory are exceedingly bright.
