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.
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.
THE KENTUCKY KERNEL
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
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
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
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
is the possibility that the co-einterested in the attainment of a career for
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
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.

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
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

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
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.

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
The Yale Dally News objects to the project
of the Harvard Crimson for a national discussion of prohibition and Its effects upon the col
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
