G. Kelly Leads Brigade Prof. E. (!. Kolley, H. S. '0.1 and M. S. '01 who Is now entomologist of the extension division of tho Kansas State Agriculture College, submitted a plan in teaching entomology of to vocational agricultural classes before a convention of teachers Juno, 1921.

Wilson, president of the club was In the chair and made a plea for a stronger support of their Alma Mater by the alumni, urging them to begin work now to have elected to the 1924 legislature men in sympathy with Kentucky's need for educational advancement and a state university comparable to those of other states. Two years Is not long enough to accomplish much toward's the University's good, he said, but by the constant united effort of the alumni the result will be felt. In four or six years. The relation of the model high school to the University of Kentucky and its use as a laboratory for students in the Department of Education, was explained by Harold P. Fling, principal of the school. It is yet in its infancy and sadly crippled on account of lack of funds but is doing good work. It holds membership In the Association of High Schools and Colleges of the South, to which only about 500 high schools are eligible. The University saxaphone quartette furnished the music for the occasion. x X X Birmingham Alumni Entertain Junior Engineers The Birmingham Alumni Club entertained the junior engineers, on an inspection trip of southern industries, with a banquet at the Southern Club, April 9, at S p. m. Mr. J. M. Sprague '07, president of the club, presided and gave the boys a royal welcome. An old fashioned southern dinner was served and a round-tabltalk followed. Short talks were made by Mr. Sprague, E. J. Kohn '12, A. B. Haswell '11 and others of the twelve alumni present. The Birmingham alumni want the southern trip made a regular feature of the junior inspection trip and they certainly showed their and interest in entertaining the boys. They took them in charge on arrival in Birmingham, had a special train to visit the different industries and Mr. 13. J. Kohn, Secretary of the Club, spent the entire day with them. The Club is anxious that the Wildcats play their return football game with Alabama at Birmingham In stead o Tuskaloosa next fall, and an effort is being made to carry out this suggestion. The juniors were so delighted with their treatment and the industrial plants visited that they, too, are working to have the Birmingham trip become a permanent part of the junior engineering inspection trip. e X X Louisville Alumni Club Entertain K. E. A. Alumni Deligates. The Louisville Alumni Club gave a banquet to Alumni deligates attending the Kentucky Educational Association convention in the Red Room of the Seolbach hotel April 12 at 6:00 p. m. Those attending the banquet pronounce it the greatest occasion of its kind In the history of the Louisville club. Elwood Hamilton, principal speaker of the evening, said in his talk "I see 500,000 hands raised to us here tonight They are the hands of the children of Kentucky. They want an education and the state owes It to them. They want a great University and the men and women of Kentucky should forgot self and give It to thorn." Tho friends of the University, according to Mr. Hamilton, do not realize the extent of the harm done by tho evolution blight that tins fallen upon IL It Is tho duty, ho says, of every friend and former student to exert himself to the utmost to combat tho misrepresenting propaganda alloat throughout tho state. Herbert Graham, In n short address sot forth the fact that the alumni of the University nro at tho point of launching a drive to procure the funds yet remaining unprocurod to build Kentucky's war memorial structure on tho campus In honor of the men and women of the stale who lost their lives Ho detailed in tho European war. briefly tho plans to be employed which are given elsewhere in this issue. Hp exhorted fellow alumni to prosistont action In completing their groat work. He said the University would stand heartily shoulder to shoulder wlth them and predicted success. Professor E. F. Fnrquhar made an address full of vision and inspiration in which ho paid tribute to our President Dr. Frank L. McVey, referring to Optimist" and him as a a leader who would lead ever on to higher and better things for tho University of Kentucky. He made an appeal to alumni to stand by the President and uphold his hands In supporting the one ideal to be followed during the next two years, the uplifting of tho University. Professor Enoch Greham, the only impromptu speaker of the evening, in keeping with his usual ready way of speaking gave a speech of well mixed wit and common hard sense. He said, as he saw it, we were suffering from an overdose of veto. J. T. Pride, Jr., president of the Louisville club, yielded the chair of presiding officer to J. Mott McDaniel, Beattyville, who declared "despite the governor's veto of the $290,000 appropriation the University can and must be built up to the point where it is not eclipsed by any in the country.

The senior engineering class and the faculty of the College of Engineering of the University who were in Chicago and vicinity on their annual inspection trip were guests of honor at the annual dinner of the Chicago Club given in the Great Northern Hotel Saturday, April 15. A real old Kentucky menu including chicken a la Kentucky, corn fritters and French fried potatoes called to mind the wonders of Kentucky and put the company in mood receptive to thoughts of the University, W. R. Allen '97 master of ceremonies presided over the toasts. J. W. Crenshaw "22 spoke "For the Class". Following Mr. Cronshaw and supplementMr. Montgomery ing his remarks Pritchett, guest of Professor Freeman, son of the second president of the University, who was born and spent his childhood at Ashland, former site of tho University, spoke of the early days of the University when he was closely connected with it though he was not S. D. Findley and Tom a student. Riley '22 gave several musical numbers as a specialty. One of their selections was the famous "Parson Brown." The instruments used were a steel guitar, a piano and a one string violin made of a cigar box by Findley, such as every man initiated into Sigma Tau, musical fraternity, is required to make. The entire crowd led by Findley sang "All Hall Kentucky" and then famous old U. K. yells led by Silas Wilson set the roof a shaking as the enthuslastls Kentuckians gave voice to their loyalty to Alma Mater. E T. Brown '75 spoke on the past of the University, Professor Freeman on tho present and Dean F. Paul Anderson on the future. Mr. C. H. Gullion, son of E. A. of Henry state representative county, followed Professor Freeman's Gul-Ho- Anti-Bu- g week. In nineteen j Kansas counties there are 400 amateur entomologist who nro helping rid the stnto of Insects which annually Inflict millions of dollars of damage to growing crops. This work Is carried on In tho class room and the field work consists of visits to farms whore they have fumigated thn wheat bins to destroy the weevil that was damaging the grain; visits to orchards where they spray the trees, potato fields and burn grass and other vegetation containing bugs and insects which might endanger tho production and growth of chops. Professor Kelly prepared 32 lessons on economic entomology and sent one each week out to vocational agricultural schools and they are sent in time so that the insects being studied can be found in the field. During the year he spends a day at each school and makes a Held trip and visits several farms and different Insects aro locatOn many of these ed and studied. trips the farmers go with Professor Kelly and study the various Insects which destroy their crops annually.
