KERNEL THE KENTUCKY situation, but now we particularly beseech the women of the University to realize their opportunities and to feel deeply grateful to those who have conceded them. It is a triumph, yet wc urge them not to receive it in a triumphant manner, rather wc urge thnt they show their appreciation in a most maidenly mnnner, and on every opportunity that they are fortunate enough to be accorded, to bow humbly to the donors of such a gift in honest appreciation of the recognition they have received in being allowed to issue one thirty-sixt- h of the Kentucky Kernel for 1916.

I We ,the with formally make our bow to the University at large, but most particularly to the masculine element in our midst I Not humbly, d however, nor reverently, nor even apologetically as the contingent, we feel sure, undoubtedly expects us to do, but with faces beaming with pride and self assurance and hearts aglow with the realization that our edition is far superior to any ever before issued by this University, with the possible exception of that gotten out by the girls in 1915. last-name- If, in boasting thus, we appear unbecomingly conceited, we earnestly request that our critics be lenient and reflect that we have only the example set by the regular Kernel staff, to follow and we find ourselves wondering, with kindest intent, if a more body of honest citizens exists, than that conceited, composed of our contemporary brethren. They have requested that in our issue we stick as nearly as possible to the path they have so nobly hewn this year, and have beseeched us with eyes not to lower the high standards they have steadily maintained nor in any way besmirch the Kernel's good name lest it reflect discredit on them. We have done our best. Believing their greatest fort and strongest policy to be and have adopted a similar one and feel sure that we under their guidance we cannot fail to bring credit on our institution. We know that after perusing our columns every student will go to chapel. We are equally sure every matriculate in the University will straightway read the new dictionary recently advertised in these columns. Likewise, every man will automatically become a self'appointed custodian of our "crazy-quilt- " bulletin finally they, each and every one, will be inspired to boards and purchase at least six tickets to "Father and the Boys." self-satisfi- tear-dimm- What Next? In getting out the Girls' Issue this week we have become more and more impressed with the remarkable strides woman is making in every land along every line. It is not our intention in saying this to throw bouquets so directly at ourselves by any means, but rather to take up the subject from a less evident phase and call to the minds of our readers the great concessions that are being made to us. Foremost, woman has, by mere man, finally been accorded That means something, but it is not all, woman has, during the last two centuries developed (?) a mind and the actual power to use such a faculty intelligently. Not too intelligently, we hurriedly add, in an effort not to misquote our masculine t friends, but after all, intelligently enough in some States, the cli- 7fr ate being wholly to blame for the rapidity of development of course, to be permitted equal suffrage, and as yet nothing dire has resulted. We do not, however, lose sight of the fact that in all probability the attendant calamity so confidently predicted, will fall upon the nation in due time. Creatures who have so recently acquired both soul and mind are not of a variety to be reckoned with with any degree of confidence. a soul.
