Time and again, from the lecture platform, from pulpit, from the political "stump," have we heard the men the theme of patriotism discussed. Four-minupersuasion, their oratory, in have used their powers of behalf of the great Liberty Loan campaigns. Others have admonished the people to show their patriotism by subscribing to the Y. M. C. A., to the Red Cross, the Red Star, etc. These, and others who have done war work, have unquestionably done much for America and her Allies. But some have crossed the Atlantic and will never come back to us. Some have gone to the training camps in France. Some have been sent to the Western front, to the first line trenches. Some have gone "over the top." Clad in the khaki of the American fighting man, or wrapped in the bunting of the American flag, some have been lowered into their last resting places to the drumfire of American rifles. These have given their all to liberty. One of these was a student of the University of Kentucky. He was Lewis W. Herndon. He was the first University man known to die on the Western Front. He had the signal honor of "dying in the harness," the greater honor of dying for his country. Mournful as the incident is, and fraught as it is, with sorrow to his comrades who have not yet been given the honor to share in his immortal glory, the lesson he leaves to his fellow students is as valuable as his sacrifice has been exemplary. To pass to "dust and darkness," in the full strength of years, when the limbs are weary and when the day's work is done, especially when it is well done, brings neither sorrow nor regret, for this is God's appointed time. But to pass as this young man passed, in youth, "in love with life and enraptured with the world," with the Eastern sun still gilding the hills that lay before him, yet with the "harness on," in the midst of battle, in the sublime struggle for the freedom of the human race there is the lesson, comrades and fellow students. te 4 WELCOME, SOLDIERS. In the news columns of the Kernel of this week a story which deals with preparations being made to take care of the 400 selected men to be sent to the University in the near future for training is featured. This paper congratulates the University upon the fact that it has been designated a training station by the Government. Auhorities of the University are doing everything possible to make the tutelage of the men here useful and beneficial. The University Y. M. C. A. intends to extend to the soldiers all the comforts the Y. M. C. A. and similar organizations in the cantonments of this country afford. Music will be taught by the University director and it has been planned to feed the men at the "Mess Hall." CO-E- CABINET D the right hand of fellowship and" upon terms of good comradeship.

The conference was well attended delegates enwith about seventy-fivrolled. The entire cabinet from the University was sent, those attending being, Misses Mildred Graham, Elizabeth McGowan, Austin Lilly, Mary Beall, Eliza Piggott, Mildred Collins, Louise Will, and Hannah Weakley, who went as alternate for Miss Ruth Duckwall. Patrons of Science Hill acted as hostesses to the visiting girls, and the regular sessions of the Council were held at the school. The welcome address was given Friday evening by the president of ,the Science Hill association, followed by an address by Miss Mable Stone, secretary for the South Central Field. An Informal reception was given in honor of the delegates after the registration. The conference on Saturday was devoted to departmental plans. The cabinet of the University demonstrated an ideal committee meeting, Miss Mildred Graham acting as chairman, the other members of the cabinet forming the committee. The meeting was supposed to be that of a social committee. Plans for the party which the Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. are to give Friday night formed the business of the meeting, many arguments pro and con being offered thru all the dignified channels of Parliamentary Law. Saturday evening the seniors of Science Hill presented Oscar Wildes' play, "The Importance of Being Earnest," for the visitors. The meeting closed Saturday afternoon with a vesper service. e LYKELLE POEM NO. 25. (Heard after the big league game.)

Tho Arts and Science team was defeatel by the Lawyers, 13 to 0. The batteries for the first game were, Coleman and Herber, for the Engineers, and Vanarsdale and Parker and Chambers for the Ags. Tho game was "fast and furious" with much of the big league stuff seen here Saturday displayed in the miniature. The second game lasted but six innings. Daddy Boles says many good players have been discovered who have been living to blush unseen, and he hopes some of them may decide to play with the varsity when their college games are over. The games will continue on the same schedule, two games each Monday and Thursday afternoon. Practice will be held on the Mulligan lot behind Stoll Field.

Dr. The flag of the University of Ken tucky waving at the top of its 500 foot flag pole has inspired thousands of students and citizens of Lexington as it has caught the winds and played with them. Recently, however, the inspiration of the flag has been lessened. It has been flying at an odd angle of 45 degrees. During the severe cyclonic wind storm which struck the Blue Grass section last May, the pole was greatly bent. Since that time It has stood like an old man, bent with age, seemingly unable to lift its head to the heights befitting the bearer of "Old Glory." The program at the Y. W. C. A. Sunday evening was in charge of the Publication Department and was conducted by Miss Adele Slade. Miss Elizabeth Kraft spoke on "National Organization," telling some of the mechanics of the Association together with its field work. Miss Roberta Thornton gave some Association news, such as the uses to which the Students' War Fund has been put, and the opening in Paris of Hotel Petrograd to accommodate any girls and women doing war work. The next meeting of the Y. W. C. A. will be in charge of the Missionary Committee and Miss Eleanor Robertson, Louisville, will speak. But now with the help of team, tackle and pole, it has been straightened. It was necessary that the pole AN AMERICAN PEACE be shortened some ten feet, but There can be no peace with honor now "Old Glory," has resumed its duty or safety to ourselves or to posterity, as an inspiration to the students of except a just peace, and there can the University. and will be no other peace.
