need for educational advancement and
a state university comparable to those
of other states. Two years Is not long

the University's good, he said, but by
the constant united effort of the alumni
the result will be felt. In four or six
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.

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
