Circulation Manager OPEN SESAME t i This week sees the campus teeming with the activity of the tenth annual high school assembly at the University. The grounds are filled with from 200 to 300 visitors from the state high schools, all guests of the extension departments, the music department and Phi Mu Alpha, honorary music fraternity. Dormitories, halls, fraternity and sorority houses are welcoming the talented young students of Kentucky, who in the next few years will constitute a large part of the student body of the University. The value of such an undertaking can not be computed except in large figures. To the University it is a direct way of coming into contact with the most desirable material with which to fill Its classrooms a method by which it can show the many attractions that our colleges offer; to the high school students it is an opportunity to display their talents an occasion on which they may become acquainted with their state University. Often Just such a contact is the deciding factor for the high school 'senior boys and girls when they are choosing their future school. There also is no uncertain value to the city of Lexington, another beneficial influence of the University to her homesite. The student body, the faculty, members of the University organizations, wish to open wide hospitable doors to our visitors this week, and will be ready, we are confident, to render any service within their power. COUNCIL Best Copy THE KENTUCKY KERNEL PAGE FOUR BOOKSTORE Charges made by students that the University book store is reaping Inordinate profits from the sale of textbooks and school commodities will be given full consideration and an investigation begun soon by a committee appointed for that purpose, it was announced after a meeting of the council Wednesday afternoon. The Kernel believes that the council has taken the proper action following a request from students that conditions at the store be investigated, as was noted in last week's issue of the student paper. The council, by acting quickly and precisely, has established itself as a true student body with the welfare of both the school and the students at heart. As long as it continues to function in such commendable manner the council will be a most valuable adjunct to this school. The Kernel printed the first story of the investigation with some misgivings, not because it was feared that any action would be taken against the editors for "breaking" the story, but because the relations of The Kernel with the book store have been both pleasant and profitable and because on Friday no official action had been taken by the councllmen. The Kernel feels that it was justified in so doing. Many students knew of the proposed action at press hour, and would have challenged the status of the paper as a student publication had there been no account of the council action published. Although there was some hesitation felt in giving the news story its position on page one, The Kernel also felt that students were entitled to know whether or not the book store was earning excess profit at the expense of students, many of whom are working their way through school. Now that the council officially has appointed a committee to conduct the investigation and report its findings to the council so that students will be enlightened as to the true conditions, lasting good should result. If the book store is reaping inordinate profits, the student body is entitled to have tha practice discontinued; "if the store is not overcharging the University and the management are entitled to have It made known so that the present dissatisfaction with prices at the store will evaporate under knowledge that the book store is earning only that profit to which It should be entitled. In other columns of today's paper will be found the latest story of action of the council at Wednesday's meeting. The Kernel feels that the councllmen are going to provide all parties concerned with lasting benefit, and that is something all parties should desire. At the next meeting of the body, following Easter vacation, the councllmen will prepare CO-ED- S AND MARRIAGE In a vocational survey recently conducted by the Dean of Women at Northwestern University, the startling discovery was made that coeds, at least those of that university, do not want to marry I Of 400 girls interviewed only 23 admitted they were yearning for or planning marriage. As one of the girls who was questioned during the course said, in regard to the "institution of marriage," "Who wants to live In an institution?" The result of this survey may or may not indicate a great number of things. First of all it surely does Indicate that the popular conception at the modern university falls to of the co-e- d fit In with the picture presented by this survey. As a matrimonial bureau the university, supposedly, has been, according to dally papers, magazines and humorous publications, the rendezvous for all those with a consumate desire to quit the life of single bliss. It may indicate that girls of this type no longer find it necessary or expedient to attend college or university with this purpose In view. If this be true, then the conclusion might be drawn that college men no longer appeal to the average girl, either because of his "college" attitude, or because the average college man is being pushed out of the picture by those who, being older, have more to offer In a monetary way. On the other hand it might Indicate that college men are no longe rsusceptible to the wiles and winning ways of such girls. Or there actually are is the possibility that the co-einterested in the attainment of a career for themselves. Only one conclusion, however, may be drawn with certainty from this survey, or from any surveys of a similar nature: Human nature is so constituted as to render the value of such investigation practically worthless. People do not make a practice of expressing their most intimate ideas and Ideals on form blanks. The modern girl falls to see the advantage of telling the dean of women that their sole aim in attending college is to "get her man." One mimeographed survey sheet cannot eradicate a nature built up from generation to PROM QUEEN The Kernel extends felicitations to the queen-ele- ct on the honor accorded her by the Junior class in their selection of her as Junior Prom Queen. A second time the Juniors have chosen wisely and well, Miss Kathleen Fitch, last year's queen, being the first. As the student body of the University crowns another beauty, chosen from the resident bevy of girls, the reputation of the women of thVs South and of Kentucky in particular, crops forth in perennial freshness. Though the colleges to the North strive to follow the lead of the Southerners, their attempts fall short of great success. All the world thinks of a Southern lady as the embodiment of beauty, delicacy, and grace. Byron might well have been thinking of such a characterization when he wrote: "She walks in beauty like the night, Of cloudless chimes and starry skies; And all that's best of dark and light Meet In her aspect and her eyes: Thus mellowed to that tender light Which Heaven to gaudy day denies." Such teachings have been Instilled In the minds of Kentucklans, that they cannot con ceive a public event without the inclusion of the honoring of woman. The period might almost bear the caption of "Bowing to Beauty" or some like phrase. There have been beauties before. There will be other beauties. But the Prom Queen, differ ing from the majority of those honored, is not only a bearer of beauty, but a personification of graclousness, dignity and friendliness. GETTING A JOB (Oregon Emerald.) seniors must be "smooth," but their dress must not be too "collegiate" when inter viewing prospective employers, is advice one hears this time of the year when big corpora tlons are sending field men down to look over the "crop" of college men who will graduate in June and be looking for jobs. Instead of waiting for the graduate to come companies and see them, these forward-lookin- g scan the prospects before they get out of school and if they see a man who Is a "comer" it is to their advantage to sign him up. Good manners, correct speech, an adult point appearance make of view and a as important an impression as the student's college classroom training and scholastic record. Most interviewers place the Importance of col lege activities as follows: First, grades in colactivities, and lege subjects; second, activities. third, College men might profitably consider those points and note the importance placed by the Not business world on their work in college. only do the points apply to seniors who confer with interviewers from corporations, but every college man who goes out hunting a Job after graduation will find himself facing the same sort of scrutiny on the same angles. PROHIBITION AS A COLLEGE ISSUE (Wisconsin Cardinal.) The Yale Dally News objects to the project of the Harvard Crimson for a national discussion of prohibition and Its effects upon the col leges. The Crimson has published a program of prohibition reform, formulated by the Harvard Debate Council, which the editors hope to sec taken up by other college editors and dis cussed by other college debate clubs. The Yale editors feel that prohibition Is not a college issue. Their Interest, an editorial in the News states, "is in getting at the facts of prohibition as they obtain in the university . . . It is our conviction that facts and figures showing the present extent of drinking in college would be a valuable contribution to the issue." We hold no brief for the Hnrvard plan. We find it rather vague. But the Yale paper's denial of Interest In reform seems to us completely unjustified. Wc feel that all matters of public welfare arc college issues, whether they be local, state, or national, whether they be eco nomic or political or ethical. In another year most of us who conduct these discussions, either In the college papers or In college debates, or simply In fraternity house bull sessions, will bo out of college. Whatever thinking we may have done during these four years of comparative peace, comparative freedom, will have to last most of us a long time. Few of us In the first five years out of school will have much time to think, and at the end of that time most of us will have forgotten how. We believe that one of the primary duties of college papers Is to comment upon all matters of public interest, to stir up discussion in college circles. The Yale plan to collect statistics is sensible, If not particularly practicable, but It does not go far enough. We favor discussions in the Harvard mood, If not after the Harvard pattern.

This book in The corporates the results of years of study, expe rience and research in the public school field. Dr. Adams has attempted to prepare a text book which will appeal to school children in such a way that they will be Interested in the subject, and in learning more of spelling. In this attempt he has succeeded remarkably well, according to several able critics in the field of education. It Is well that the University has in its corps of professors, those who can teach, not only theory, but can transform their theories to practical subjects and acts, as well.

V A new field for university graduates, unlim ited in its possibilities, has been brought to the attention of students on the campus of the Uni versity by the announcement issued recently from the United States Department of Justice to the effect that prison service has recently been reorganized and professionalized. The first step in this move has been the establishment of a school for this purpose .In New York. The scope of this work is striking because of the unique position it holds. Rarely, if ever, has the average student been heard to mention the idea of utilizing the prison and The Kernel is not attempting to be facetious as a means of a life vocation. To those students who feel that the humdrum existence which they antici pate with the following of the "average" career after college, this announcement should afford ample room for contemplation. i 4 GO TO CHURCH DAY Sunday, April 13, has been chosen by the University Y. M. C'. A. as the day to be set aside for both students and faculty members as the occasion to be known as "Go to Church Sunday." Each year this organization, together with the Y. W. C. A., sponsor this day for the purpose of attemotlnK to make the students on the Unlver sity campus "Church Conscious." Ministers of with these the Lexington churches groups in presenting sermons of special interest to men and women in college ranks. The Kernel considers it a distinct privilege to with these re urce that all students llglous organizations in the promotion of this day. As President Mcvey has said: "The weu balanced life must include the religious phase. Too much commendation cannot be tendered the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. in this and other work promoted at the University. A challenge to the imagination LITERARY COLUMN College MARGARET CUNDIFF, Editor HENRY VIII (By Francis Hackett, Horace and Llverrlght, New York, 1029.) Here is an alive and distinguished book "A Personal History of a Dynast and His Wives." It is, indeed, a complete history of England and much of the Continent during a period when Henry "broke the bonds of Rome" and made the clergy of England dependent on himself. Against this background the author spreads be tapestry, woven fore your eyes a of kings, courtiers and churchmen, amid scenes of treachery, politics and love. Adhering strictly to facts for his book, Mr. Hackett becomes almost the novelist in his manner of recounting anew the old story of Henry VIII and his six wives. Though they are dead these many centuries, the author brings them dramatically to life on his pages. This is a magnificent biography which relies on a vast harvesting and dynamic marshalling of facts and testimony rather than the brilliant supposition and dubious psychology which is one of the serious faults of so many biographers. To provide telephone service of national scope, to manage and develop properties valued at more than three and billion dollars, to maintain an organization of more than 400,000 people such work spurs at highest efficiency the creative thought of men of the highest calibre. Within the Bell System many have achieved outstanding success.
