OF THE SENIOR COURT.
To anyone who is familiar with conditions at the University and on Its
grounds during the period of the S. A. T. C. regime, there must invariably
come the thought of the change between that and the present time. Simultaneously with this thought comes the decision that the grounds of the
University should never be marred in such manner again. The University,
at great cost, has succeeded iln putting the campus 'in
is up to the student body ,to see that it is kept that way.
In this connection may be considered the value of the Senior Court, that
august assembly which is the supreme judicial body of the University. When
any person, either through malice or thoughtlessness, so far forgets himself
as in any way to mar or deface the grounds and buildings, some penalty
should be prescribed that would so forcefully impress itself upon his mind
that he would not offend again.
Tho Kernel specifically Insists that an edict be issued by the Senior
Court prohibiting all short cuts across grass plots, and against the
arid ancient custom of defacing buildings and walks with class numerals,
a custom by the way, that might obtain with better grace in a preparatory
school for younger boys, but out of the question in a University, where grown
young men and women are pursuing ,tlieir studies for degrees. This edict
should be obeyed by the faculty and all members of the student body. In
this and in many other problems of University life the Senior Court can prove
a power for good on the campus. The Senior Court, rightly conducted, will
have an influence on the personnel of the University that would be far more
lasting than any ruling that might be dssued by the faculty, and would be a
step toward effective student
Many problems arise on the campus that are out of the jurisdiction of
the faculty. In these cases there is usually a right and wrong side. A fair
minded Senior Court, operating for the good of the University and the student
body, is the proper tribunal by which such questions should be decided.
Whenever the student body has reached the stage at which its representatives can promulgate fair and sensible laws for its own
a long step has been taken along the path of progress and right thinking
in the University.
WE ALL CAN HELP.
The Wildcats have made a good start. They have fulfilled the expecta
tions of their coach, the University and their supporters of our State. From
all sections U. K. alumni are anxiously awaiting the results of the season.
Coach Gill is giving the Cats the best that is in him. The members of
the team are exerting themselves to the most, both mentally and physically,
for the honor of old Kentucky.
Now what can we do?
A word of congratulation, signs of appreciation for his efforts, mean
much to the man who is working on Stoll Field each afternoon.
And again, we all know the main essential of a winning team is condition. A football man is only human. He is not proof against temptation.
And yet, one night's loss of sleep, one ciraget, may impair that man's usefulness to the extent of making a weak spot on the team which the opposing
eleven will be sure to find, thereby losing a game for Kentucky.
A word in time to a friend, a friendly admonition as to what the consequences will be, a reminder of what the University expects of him, may keep
.a player from that which would injure his physical condition and lower the
efficiency of the team.
Let the men see that you are interested in them; that the University is
behind them, win or lose, and is expecting them .to fulfill the hopes placed
in the team and that only by the strictest training can this be done.
This is something we all can, and should do.
The demonstration on the part of the yelling contingent exhibited on Stoll
Field on the occasion of the Georgetown game was unworthy of the student
body; indeed it was so poorly representative of U. of K. spirit as It has been
exhibited in the old days as to have been wellnigh disgraceful, and had the
team disclosed no greater spirit in the contest than was shown by the
students' apparent apathy in supplying the necessary stimulus for battle from
..the stand and sidelines we should have lost the contest and should have
deserved to lose it.
