Inquiries at the rate of twenty or more per day have been coming into the office of the dean. The program for freshman orientation week, while not yet complete, will be formulated with the idea of acquainting the uninformed freshman with the University and enable him to find his way about the campus to his various classes with scant difficulty. Freshman Week proper will begin Thursday, September 11, at 9 a. m., at Memorial hall. The freshmen will be divided Into groups of twenty or thirty and various faculty members will conduct them about the campus, showing them the different buildings and points of Interest. Students and graduate assistants are also asked to contribute their services for this program. This year it has been planned to give all freshmen their physical examinations on the first day so as to determine their fitness for physical military science. education and Generally, when the physical examinations are held over until registration time, some considerable confusion results. In addition to familiarizing the students with the University campus, a series of talks will be given by selected faculty members, designed to inform the freshman on various things that will be of interest to him. During this time instructions will also be given the fresh man for registration so as to avoid the confusion that might otherwise result because of their unfamlllarity with the rather complicated system. of- fiCC 01 U. K. CAMPUS KERNELS Since all the scandalmongers have departed for greener (and we hope rnnler) fields, we have had scant oDDortunity for satisfying our in satible desire for bad news of others. Most everybody seems to lack the old vim, vigor and vitality to do more than behave themselves during the present dry spell. Our old friend Tom Phipps has become so fed up on the present unemployment situation that he has returned to the second summer session. It looks like old times with Ed Greene. Tom Phipps and W. E.

We are Just about as interested in seeing the Initial number as we are in noting the possibilities for a good football team next year. It has been rather generally mentioned around that "Kentucklans" premier dance orchestra from the University of Kentucky, and composed almost exclusively of University students, will open a engagement at Joyland Casino on August 18. Considering that the music Is furnished generally by well recognized orchestras from different parts of the country, this new position is apparently a recognition of the merit of the Kentucklans. We are glad to see them get it. At last the office force of The Kernel has been able to get back into their old quarters, albeit they have been whittled down by half. We've always felt that one big comfortable chair and desk is all that Is needed. When more than one ambitious Journalist Is around the office at one and the same time, it Is an occasion. DEAN BOYD LEAVES Dean Paul Prentice Boyd, of the College of Arts and Sciences, left Sunday for Beulah, Mich., to Join his family for a month's vacation. Mrs. Boyd, Miss Virginia Boyd and Miss Betty Boyd have spent the entire summer on the lake there.

Summer Commencement To' Prominent University Grad Re Held for First Time in Law Class of 1918 In University History Runs for Office WAS STUDENT ORATOR WHILE IN UNIVERSITY AGGIE MEN HOME FROM FARM MEET Dean Cooper and Associates Meet With Farm Hoard to Study Wheat Problem Several members of the Univer sity College of Agriculture faculty have returned from a central states wheat conference at Indianapolis, Ind. Chairman Legge, of the Federal farm board, conducted the confer ence, which was attended by repre sentatlves of Michigan, Illinois, In dlana, Ohio, Missouri, and Kentucky agricultural colleges and U. S. Department of Agriculture economists. Education in the nation's soft wheat acreage was recommended by Chairman Legge as a means of in creasing farm incomes from this source. Dean rnomas p. cooper, of the College of Agriculture, says Kentucky's wheat production has already reached a low point. University faculty members at tending the meeting were Dr. H. B. Price, Prof. Gordon Nance. Prof. George Roberts, Prof. E. J. Kinney, and Prof. Z. L. Galloway. Honor Graduate of Law College Was Active in AH Student Affairs Final reports of the August primary election Indicates that Virgil Chapman, graduate of the University class of 1918, won the nomination for Congressman from this district by a majority of 9,050 votes. Mr. Chapman was defeated for Congress last time by the landslide during the Hoover election. Chapman was a very prominent student. while enrolled at the University. He was known as "the boy orator of the Pennyrile." Graduating from the law school as an honor student In 1918, the Kentuckian for that year indicates that he was also the orator of his class. In campus activities he was very prominent. He was a staff member and editor of he Kentucky Law Journal during his last year in school. He was a member of the Y. M. C. A. cabinet and active in religious work. Other campus activities also claimed his attention. Chapman was a member of the Kentucky Kernel staff and also a member of Alpha Delta Sigma, national honorary professional advertising fraternity. Listed among his other activities we also find Tau Kappa Alpha. After finishing school in 1918, Mr. Chapman engaged in the active practice of law and has been very prominent In politics. His various interests have never caused him to forsake the University and he Is an active alumni member, and flso does a great deal of work in the Transylvania alumni, from which school he is also a graduate. has been reflinlshing the interior of the second floor of the Law building and when completed will add some considerable space to the Law library.
