Any of these or another proposed by a member of the Alumni Association may win the capital prize. One hundred dollars for the best plan for GETTING THE RIGHT RESULTS for the Alma Mater is the offer. This plan is sought particular ly for its bearing on the 1924 Legis lature. If it measures up to the con ception of those making the proposal its benefits will be permannet. The contest will close in May. Ad ditional details will be made known later. SPREAD KNOWLEDGE Alumni Call for Speakers in Greater Kentucky Campaign Many things are new about the University. Alumni everywhere should seek to hear about the Alma Mater's progress from the President, members of the faculty, the student speakers' bureau and officers of the Alumni Association. Programs of local alumni clubs especially in Kentucky are being arranged so others than the members may hear the principal addresses. This is one of the most helpful factors in the "Greater Kentucky" campaign. The calls for speakers made on tli University in the last few weeks is due largely to alumni efforts. Such contacts with the citizens-at-larg- e by University officials help the institution to render a greater service to the State and make possible a better understanding and a more ready sympathy on the part of the average cis izen. ' '. -o BARKLEY MAKES PLEDGE "I want the University of Kentucky to be to this State what the universities of Virginia, Michigan and Wisconsin are to their commonwealths," declared Congressman Albcn W. Barkley, of Paducah, an aspirant for the Democratic nomination for Governor, at the opening address of his campaign in Danville Monday evening. Mr. Barkley would provide adequate financial suppor for the University and complete facilities for the entire! public educational system. While in Lexington he visited Warren Mid dleton, Paducah student who was shot on the campus several days ago. NOMINATING COMMITTEE Ballots for Annual Election Will Be Mailed in Few Weeki J. I.

Secretary, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky. Dear Sir: It has been brought to my attention that the University of Kentucky is interested in possible means of enlarging or adapting her stadium for the better accommodation of present day requirements. A member of my staff, who has been working on this subject for the past three years, has discovered and perfected, for the construction of a novel and efficient design based upon the attempt to meet requirements of modern games. Up to now, all amphitheatres and stadia have been laid out in accordance with principles of the ancient Greek and Roman structures designed for combats and chariot races. Modern games are dissimilar to these ancient sports in many vital particulars, and it can be imagined that the meeting of modern conditions would result in an interesting type of structure. The experiments have produced a successful, practicable and aesthetic s'ta-di- a, The American Association of Uni vcrsity Women unites educational in tcrcst of college women of 130 col leges and universities throughout the United States in such a manner that they may meet socially to form new and further old friendships, to dis cuss all phases of education, art, music, law, home economics, social service, medicine, public health, journalism in fact all the branches of knowledge which are classified in a college catalog. They study their home communities to see in what way educated women may be of service in adding culture and comfort to the communities in which they live. They offer scholarships to tempt talent and genius, they administer loan funds to ambitious but not wealthy young peo pie, they offer fellowships for foreign study that students may know students and colleges in other lands, and they give teas and luncheons and din ners and plays and musicales and lec tures.
