ithrce hundred tired but happy Kentucky rooters alighted from the train
at the Southern station in Lexington,
after which each one declared, it
best trip he had ever had. They were
coming from Knoxville where they
went to see ithe Wildcats down the
Volunteers. 'Of course, according to
the score, they didn't do it, but everybody was satisfied with the whole trip
and proud of the way the Wildcats
held the Tennessee lads. Upon arriving in Lexington all who made the
trip were met with demands of "tell
us about it," and that's what they've
been doing ever since.
The Kentucky special arrived at
Knoxville at 6 a. m., after a night of
unusual display of "spirit" and eu- 1,

SPORT WRITERS HAVE
ORGANIZED NEW CLUB
The Annonymous Cudgel, an organization of the sport writers of .the University, was organized ait a meeting
in the Alpha Zeta room in the library Monday night. The club was
formed for the purpose of the discussion of methods in writing sports. In
view of the fact that more "stuff" is
written by Anonymous than by anyone else, the club, or cudgel, has been
named in honor of that individual.
Meetings will be held the first and
third Tuesday nights in every mouth
Every member of the organization wil
be an officer. The Cudgel has a very

the coming months. .Members

Prospects for 1923 Indicate Another Record Year; Fuller
Suffering a 7 defeat at the hands
of the University of Tennessee gridat Knoxville,
Thanksgiving Day, the Wildcat eleven
completed its 1922 football schedule.
Regardless of the fact that the team
suffered three defeats out of nine
games, the past season has been one of
the most successful in the history of
With no outstanding
stars, and with a team work "that was
evident in all the contests, the Cats
lost only to Centre, Vanderbilt and
Tennessee. All of the three losses were
in close games, with the Blue and
White fighting until the final whistle.
Overbalancing the defeats were the
victories over Cincinnati, Sewannee
and Alabama. The Alabama victory
especially relieves the fans of much of
the bitter taste, for the Crimson was
a victor over the University of Pennsylvania and Georgia.

Starting the season with a practically new combination, the Wildcats
emerged victors over the Marshall College aggregation by the slight margin
