At Last Rites For
Price McLean, varsity center, of the
University of Kentucky football team,
died Sunday night at 7:15 o'clock
from injuries received in the
game played at Cincinnati Saturday afternoon. McLean
received a blow over the left eye which
caused a clot on the brain and the
Kentucky player died after an operation which, until his death, was
thought to be successful.
The injury which caused the death
of the Blue and White player was received a few minutes before theend of
the first half of the game Saturday.
From the sidelines it was not possi-a1l- e
to see that McLean was injured,
although on one play he lined up slowly and paused as if to catch his
breath. On the next play the center
got into position, apparently without
any trouble. On the field, however,
McLean was putting up a fight to
stay in the game and complete his

Unusual interest has been shown in
the department's selection for its 1923
production. "Martha" is the first grand
opera that has been attempted and it
supports six leads in addition to the
chorus. Each practice has been spirited throughout and present indications point toward a brilliant success.

instructed to make soundings of the
site on which the football stadium of
the University is to be placed, following a meeting of the University of
Kentucky stadium executive committee, held Friday at the Lafayette Hotel.
The stadium will be completed by
September, 1924, according to the
plans outlined by J. Irvine Lylc, general manager of the Carrier Engineering Company, of New York, who is
head of the committee appointed to
supervise the erection of the football
The stadium will be erected thirty
feet south of Winslow street, on a
line with, and adjoining the new basketball building, which is now under
construction. Both structures will be
surrounded by an ornamental fence.
The architecture will conform with
that of the basketball building. The
stadium will be in the form of the letter "U." There will be 32 tiers of
seats, affording a seating capacity of
21,000 persons. Provision will also be
made for the erection of bleachers

Memorial services were held Tuesday at the fifth hour in the chapel for
Price Innes McLean, who died Sunday
at 7:30 following an operation for a
blow on the head received in the football game Saturday between University of Kentucky and University of
Cincinnati at Cincinnati.
Dr. F. L. McVey presided, opening
the exercises by reading the ninety-firpsalm which was followed by the
Lord's prayer. Doctor McVey then
introduced Doctor Bush, of the Presbyterian church, who in a few remarks
paid tribute to Price McLean, in
which he said his life was a house
with two rooms and our comrade had
only passed to the other room. He
impressed upon all the need of a larger faith in a larger and fuller life.
Professor Enoch Grehan, representing the Athletic Council and faculty
staff, made impressive remarks reminding the student body that McLean
died in service for the University and
in no better way can our recollection
of his worthiness be proved than to
carry on his burden where he left fraud to do as well as he did.
The football team was represented
by Dell Ramsey, who paid a touching
tribute to the character of his teammate, saying he was a thorough gentleman, hand ifighter, conscientious
worker and his memory leaves an inspiration and example of sportsman(Continued to Page 8)
