The Kentucky Kernel UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY VOL. XV LEXINGTON, KY., FEBRUARY 20, 1925 No. 19 CATS CLOSE SEASON WITH CENTRE TOMORROW ORATORIO TO BE SUKY INSTALLS PEP DR. FUNKH0USER RETURNS FROM CLUB AT PARIS HIGH GIVEN HERE BY OAlNULHVLAriLIWVVU VVLLiO 31 A I To Organize Circles in Other A LARGE CHORUS High Schcools "The Messiah" is Subject of Great Composition 300 TO PARTICIPATE Phi Mu Alpha, Musical Fraternity, to Sponsor Production "The Messiah," Hnndcls immortal oratorio, will bo given the latter part of April under the direction of Professor Lampcrt. In celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of the rendition of "The Messiah," in New York, the New York Choral Society recently presented the oratorio. "The Messiah" is considered one of the greatest works' from a religious and musical standpoint, giving the scheme of Salvation as presented in the Bible, the prophecy of the coming of the Sa vior, His suffering, and our redemp tion through His blood. The university presentation of this work will be unique in that we will use our own orchestra and chorus, supplemented by singers from Lex ington and surrounding towns. Phi Mu Alpha, musical fraternity of the university, is sponsor for the presen tation, and is organizing the forces outside of Lexington, and the sue cess of the presentation will be large ly due to its efforts. The presenta tion will not only be a civic cxpres sion of the university and of Lex ington, but will be an expression of Kentucky in such an endeavor. For an adequate presentation of this work, a chorus of three hundred voices will be needed. The Music de nartment desires that every student who is interested in proving his or her ability as a singer will come out for practice. The showing of ability in this production will be in a meas ure a stepping stone for entrance in to the Glee Clubs. All students who are interested in taking part in the chorus are invited to 'come to White Hall, room 301, to day at 3:30 for tryouts. The SuKy Circle, in response to a request from the Paris high school, established a pep organization at that institution last Monday. The name of the group is "Parisians," and their purposes nre similar to that of the circle at the university, the fostering of athletics. At the regular meeting of the Su Ky Circle yesterday, plans were discussed concerning the establishment of similnr organizations in other high The schools throughout the state. plan outlined at present is for the pep club to foster the high local school group and in this way to bring them in closer touch with the uni vcrsity. If such a plan can bo worked out, it is thought that it will tend to create a keener interest among the prepara tory students in the state university and will bring a large number of high school graduates here. ALLEN, KENTUCKY AUTHOR, DIES IN NEW YORK CITY One of America's Fore most Men of Let- ters TO BE BURIED HERE Says Many Heroic Deeds Were Done By Res cuers of Which the World Will Never Know Nature, who had for two weeks held Floyd Collins in Sand Cave, relinher close vigilance for n short while, Monday, only to claim him again, after the physicians had examined the victim. According to Dr. Funkhouser, who has just returned from the cave after a stay of ten days, every possible effort was made and lives were risked in futile attempts to rescue He said that there were Collins. many heroic deeds performed by the workers which will never bo known. The early efforts of friends of Col lins before the state took the matter in charge, deserve great praise. Dr. Funkhouser also said that the report that the imprisonment was a "put-up- " affair was absolutely unfounded, and was a discredit to those who had worked so faithfully. Ho said that the ones to whom much credit should be given are Lieu tenant Governor H. H. Denhardt, who was in charge of the military control; H. T. Carmichacl, supervisor of the work; Roy Anderson, N. F. Ford, Ben Wells, and John Gerald, who risked their lives to survey the underground passage in order to locate the shaft. Dr. Funkhouser said, "Sand Cave is not really a cave at all, but merely a passage through a 'fall,' which Col lins thought might lead to a cave. Probably Collins lost his way while quished CO-ED- S Graduated From Iran PETERS sylvania with Highest Honors The annual Military Ball will be given in the New Gymnasium tonight from 9 to 1 o clock. This affair has grown in tho past few years until now it is one of tho principal social events of the year. This year more elaborate prepara tions have been made than ever before, and it promises to be of such brilliance as to make it live in the memory as tho outstanding feature of school life here, approaching in importance tho hops at West Point and at V. M. I. A program of eight dances has been made, the Grand March coming at the end of the fifth going through this 'fall' and dropped into the dangerous place where he was trnppcd." Attempts were first made to rescue Collins by means of the original tunnel, but after this caved in, efforts were made to timber the tunnel and remove the rock that had fallen in. The miners reported a "mud squeeze," which could not be timbered. The last attempt was by sinking the shaft which was tho surest way, but was very slow. A coroner's jury, composed of per sonal friends of Collins, declared that With the Regiment acting as host he came to his death from exposure to the entire university and resident received while in Sand Cave.

To have continued efforts to him. remove the body from the trap would have meant probable death to one or C. C. more of the rescuers.

Mark Godman, of Frankfort, state high school supervisor, in an address delivered Tuesday night be fore the members of Kappa Delta Pi, honorary educational fraternity of the university, pointed out the increase in the number of high schools in the state in the past seventeen years. He said "In 1908 there were perhaps not more than fifty public white high schools in the state, but today there are approximately 500." Mr. Godman emphasized the great need of health education and moral instruction, pointing out the need of trained teachers for the work. "We'l trained, sympathetic and socially- minded teachers will in time creat a public opinion that is in favor of increased expenditures for school plants and for the enrichment of tho program of studies," the speaker de clared. KY. MAY LEAD IN SHEEP PRODUCTION C. M. C. Porter, member of the senior clnss, and student in the Law college, has formally announced him self as candidate for senator from the 12th Senatorial District for the next Legislature, according to news dispatches sent to the various papers in his district. At present the 12th Senatorial Dis trict is composed of Bullitt, Hardin, LaRue and Meade counties, and is represented in the Legislature by Dr. B. A. Muster, of Lyons, LaRue county. Porter is tho son of Otis Porter, a farmer of Bardstown Junction, Bullitt county. He came to the university from Berea College, where ho was graduated from the Academy of that institution in 1920, coming to the university in the fall of that year. During his collegiate career he has made an enviable record in the class room and in campus activities. He earned mpmberships in Phi Alpha Delta, honorary professional law fraternity; Tau Kappa Alpha, hon orary oratorical; the debating team, of which he was a member for four years; and tho Speakers' Bureau, of which ho has been president for (Continued on Pago Five AND WHITE TO PLAY CENTRE TOMORROW EVE Game Marks Close of Season on Home Floor TO ATLANTA 'Cats Rate Well as Contenders for Southern Title Saturday night the Wildcats sing their 1925 swan song to the basketball fans of Lexington. On that night the final game of the regular season will be played at the University of Kentucky gymnasium with the ancient foe, Centre, as opponents to the Blue and White. Tho Kentucky basketeers are at the top of their form, as was demonstrated in their latter games on the home floor, and expect to make a winning finish to a season that has been marked by many ups and downs. On Wednesday following tho Centre tilt, the Kentucky five leaves for Atlanta to take part in the hectic struggle for the southern championship held every year in the Georgia metropolis. With one win over tho Colonels, registered earlier in the season at Danville, and with victories over teams that have decisively defeated the Centre quintet, the Wildcats anticipate little trouble in bunding out a defeat to the Danville aggregation. But the Centre teams are known for their fighting proclivities and will give the 'cats a run for their money. It would be particularly gratifying to the Colonels to win from Kentucky this season, as it has been two years since she has achieved a victory over the Wildcats on the basketball floor. Friends of the locals feel that they have a stronge chance to win the southern title this year. When the Tulane quintet went down to defeat before the fierce onslaught of Captain McFarland and his teammates, one of the best teams in the south had succumbed to defeat. The other strong teams in the tourney will probably be limited to the fives from the Ala Universities ot worm Alabama and bama and Georgia. Georgia both have wins to their credit over the 'cats. If Applegran's men flash the game they are capable of playing, the cheering sections might as well begin to limber up their vocal chords to welcome homo tho conquering heroes.

A smnll bunch, of common lambs at the Experiment Station returned a gross profit of 27 percent. The Station exhibited tho grand champion wether nt tho last show. Sheep havo been found to bo a class of livestock that can bo produced at a profit in Kentucky, and at the same time, tho animals produced are as good as any produced in North America. During the past year, over eight thousand second and cull lambs wore bred in tho stato of Kentucky and it is thought that with more cooperation among tho breeders, Kentucky will become famous as the homo of tho best sheep in America.
