Annual Affair of Militarists To Be Friday Representative Interview Seniors RURAL LIFE MUST INTERWEAVE SOCIAL, ECONOMIC PHASES" SAYS "AE" Irish Poet, George Russell, TeHs Kernel Interviewer of His Conception of a Happy Person; of the Accidental Adoption of His Pen Name; and of His Unique Experiences as an Agricultural Editor-Journali- st Taking as his subject, "Building up Rural Civilization," George "A E." Russell, Irish poet and agricultural economist, addressed an assembly of students, faculty and townspeople at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon In Memorial hall. Mr. Russell Is primarily a poet, but Is interested in agriculture, having been editor of the "Irish Homestead," and the "Irish State." He is an active member of the Irish Agricultural Organization society. Opening his address by referring to his visit here several years ago, Mr. Russell explained that at that time he was traveling In the capacity of a poet, and that poets were not supposed to know much about agriculture. He explained, however, that his address was based on 25 years experience in working for agriculture in Ireland, and that, although Ireland is a small state compared to the United States, It is the small states which can be used as laboratories to study and solve problems more rapidly than they could be solved In a large state. "The restless, tameless vitality Rifle Team Ends Successful Week of Shooting Co-e- d Girls Average 976 Points Out of Possible 1000 in Shots The highest team score ever fired by a coed rifle team at the university was made by the coed team for the week ending February 21. The team averaged 976 out of a possible 1,000. Misses Julia C. Webb, Mildred Robards, and Gertrude Hehman, made perfect scores of 100. The highest score for last year was 05 out of a possible 100, and the lowest score for this week's match was 05 out of a possible 100. Although five points seem trivial they are a big factor In compiling the scores. This is a decided Improvement over tho former match scores which were 049 and 938 out of a possible 1,000 for the two former weeks. The highest team score made last year was 989 out of a possible 1,000. Miss Averill, the girls faculty adviser, said that she was greatly Impressed by the marked improvement of the team. Lieutenant Crlswell, coach of the R. O. T. O. and varsity rifle teams, Is also coaching the girls team. He Is assisted by the officers of the R. O. T. C. unit. Miss Mae Bryant Is the student manager of the coed team. Recently the girls fired a competitive match with the boys and a tentative match Is planned by Lieutenant Crlswell to take place in the near future. NEW SERIES NUMBER 41 TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1931 Meet March 5,6,7 Baby 'Cats Hard Fight in Fast Game SEE ART EXHIBIT! SHOWING OP MODERN PRINTS TO CONTINUE THIS WEEK with which our, cities are filled comes from the country and the foreigners, for after the third and fourth generation! humanity, In these large cities, becomes decadent and sterile," stated AE. In propounding his theories of the ideal agricultural community to a representative of The Kernel Monday morning, AE said that both social and economic phases of life must be interwoven to produce the highest type of men and women. "It is the fault of American rural civilization that young people do not stay on the farm, but seek diversion in the larger cities," Mr. Russell said, and outlined his proposed remedy of community centers to promote the enjoyment of sports, drama, art, and literature. "Universities must train young people to meet their own needs, adequately' (continued AE., "for a happy person Is one who can live to himself, and by himself, indefinitely, without being bored." He dismissed such diversions as cards and movies as being for those persons who had nothing within themselves to aid them In living. When questioned as to the origin of his pen name, "AE," Mr. Russell smiled broadly, stroked his long whiskers, and answered with the following story: "At the time that I first began to write, I was a rather shy fellow, and did not wish my Identity to become known. So I chose the name of Aelon as my penname. However, I was never noted for my ability to write, as I am a very bad scribe, so the printers could make oupt only the first two letters, 'AE, and signed my writings with these initials. Since then 'AE' has been about all that I have ever been called, until I often forget that I have any other name." After Aj.E. had expounded his theories on agricultural communities to his own satisfaction and those of his listeners at the interview, with a chuckle ho related some of his experiences as a journalist and editor of an agricultural paper. Among these was his story of his search for money to meet 'financial obligations. AE said that on one particular pay-da- y finances were even lower than usual, so he sold one of his paintings and paid the employees; which is just another instance of the unusual things which AE has done. He ventured to suggest that he was probably the only journalist who had ever made art support his paper. With his smile, ills ready flow of talk, and his well-wor- n pipe In his hand, towering abort all present, AE Is a typical Xridi poet, and, though he probably wouldn't agree with us, a typical little boy on a vacation having a good time. FOR TOURNAMENT WEDNESDAY U.K. EXPENSE IS $1,335,687.82 FOR PAST SIX MONTHS Instruction nnd Maintenance Costs Amount to $896,190.57 PATTERSON HALL IS Student Loan Fund Expenditures Exceed Income by $347.09 The expenses of the University of Kentucky for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1930, and ending January 21, 1931 were $1,335,687.92, according to the report of the business agent, which was released to The Kernel yesterday. The excess of expenditures over receipts for the fiscal year amounted to $9,056.56. In the Itemized account of the income and expenditures it was found that Patterson hall was one of the few listed in which there was an excess of income over expenditures. The experiment station received a considerable income from the sale of various commodities, as well as the payment received from services to the public. In the student loan fund the expenditures exceeded the receipts $347.09. Instruction from July 1 to January 21 cost the university $426,598.22, and with the addition of the cost of administrative expenses, maintenance, and betterments, the entire sum totaled $896,190.57. The executive committee of the Board of Trustees, which received the report of the business agent, also approved several minor changes in the regulations governing the university, and heard the reports of various committees. Preliminary plans for the use of the recently acquired warehouse were submitted by the head of the department and of buildings grounds. These plans, which provided office space for that department, and the department of Physical education were examined and approved subject to further modification, when full information as to the cost of construction was available. Dean Thomas P. Cooper, of the College of Agriculture, reported that approximately 100,000 feet of timber at the Robinson's Is being cut .and put on the market in an effort to relieve the unemployment situation in the mountain section. Bids for library equipment were considered and the contract let. The question of dedicating the library was left with the president of the university with full power to act. The Book Store committee reported on the contract signed by the new manager, and listed the changes in policy which he has inaugurated. One change was the establishment of a used book business for the convenience of the student body. It was also stated that the cost of telegrams will no longer be added to the cost of the book to the student. Rehearsals for Macbeth Begin AtLittleTheater Rehearsals began last night at the Guignol theater on "Macbeth," fourth production In the current schedule of the university's playhouse, under the direction of Prank Fowler. Dr. George K. Brady, of the English department, has been assigned the title role. March 23 is the opening date of tragedy and the Shakespearian plans are already being developed to make It one of Lexington's most brilliant theatrical occasions, say observers. Having appeared two seasons ago in "The Flight of the Duchess" and last season In "The Second Mrs. Tanquerry," Dr Brady Is well known to Guignol patrons. Supporting the star of "Macbeth" are Lolo Robinson as Lady Macbeth, Wayne W. Hairier as Macduff, Prof. L. Cass Robinson as Banquo", Duke (Johnson as Malcolm, Morton Webb as Donaldbaln and Horace Miner as Duncan. The three witches of the piece will be portrayed by Nell Cain, Hugh McGuire, and Hayes Calll-ha- n while John Noonan has the role of the drunken porter. Smaller parts will be enacted by Woodson Knight, Murray Benton III, and George Whitfield. Virginia McVey will be seen as tho gentlewoman. Costumes for "Macbeth" are being prepared in the costume department of the theater under the guidance of Marion Galloway. It Is reported that the wardrobe will be authoritative In every detail l'UKPLES LOSE After winning ten consecutive games, the Purples of university high school were defeated by Mid1 way High last Friday night at Midway.

Block Prints Are Featured in Show In UK Art Center Lithographs and Etchings Are on Display; Many Artists Contribute By JOHN MURPHY The exhibition of prints, featur ing block prints, etchings, and lith ographs- - of American, English, and French artists, which opened last Wednesday in the Art Center will be on display for the remainder of the week, it was announced yesterday. The show is a chaotic semblance of artistry ranging from the blunt, wholesome effect derived from an aqua tint to the most minute, detal-li- c enjoyment gained through the scrutinizattori of Walcot's etching "Lower Broadway." "Chartres," an etching of John Taylor Arms, depicts in fine lines the cathedral mounted on the peak hillside. The of a cottage-cluttere- d fusing of crazy crooked lines in the foreground with the streaked straightness of the cathedral at the top of the picure is impressively set forth in detail and technique. George Bellows, a native of Columbus. Ohio, narrates the story "16 East Gay' Street" in his lithograph of that name. There is a play of light, of bright lines and dark spaces interspersed over the surface which menaces the side street quiet of the production somewhat, but does not distract from the beauty of the lithograph. "Dory Fishermen," "Flying Widgeon," and "Yellowlegs at Dusk," are deep bit etchings from the tool of Frank W. Benson. "Dory Fishermen" provides a study in dark, heavy lines with but little light to break the Imagery which is created by extremely slight dlfferentlaion in close, and still closer lines. "Flying Widgeon" is an audacious and excellent attempt to plaster black images of considerable size against a white surface. "Yellowlegs at Dusk" is notable as technical vis ualizing of dusk, the motion of ris Ing yellowlegs, and the dark sur rounding landscape. Perhaps the most unusual picture in the show is "Expectant Thistles," a lithograph done by George Blddle, the man who seems to gain so much delight from satirizing simple situations. From a distance the figures become a near perfect representation of what the artist Is endeavoring to present. Bellows works in light lines, a suitable congruity of technique in relation to his themes. Wanda Gag, the talented young woman artist who shut herself from the world to find art, and who found recognition before she expected to And It, has two contributions in the display. "Evening," the current larger and more widely known of the two Is a lovely glimpse of the interior of the shack in which Miss Gag lived while she was working. The sharp stops and starts of white and black surfaces, together with the grading tones of the shades contained In the lithographed, produce a unique light disbursement effect. Louis Lozowlck's most outstanding productions in the exhibition are "Brooklyn Bridge" and "Tanks No. 11." He has an uncanny method of retreating figures in his Architecturally they are works. beautiful, and in tone and clear cut impresslvcness they are not surpassed by any of tho lithograplis hanging in the show with them.

FOR FIRST CLASH ON FRIDAY Kentucky One of Four Seeded Teams with Alabama, Georgia, Maryland TEN SQUAD MEMBERS WILL MAKE JOURNEY Rupp Expects Stiff Game from North Carolinans; Hopes Are High By EDGAR A. TURLEY For the second time in as many years the University of Kentucky-Wildca- t basketball team will leave Its lair at 9 o'clock Wednesday night as one of the seeded teams in the conference to meet North Carolina State for its first tilt In the annual Southern Conference invitational tournament which will begin Friday In Atlanta under the auspices of the Atlanta Athletic club. The first Big Blue game will be played at 7 o'clock Friday afternoon. Kentucky has eight conference wins with only two defeats and will be one of the four seeded teams at the tournament with Georgia, Maryland and Alabama. The Wildcats will arrive in At lanta Thursday morning at 8 o'clock. During their stay in Georgia the 'Cats and other members of the party, including "Daddy" Boles, Dr. Funkhouser, and freshman coach, Baldy Glib, will have their headquarters at the Georgian Terrace hotel. Following a brief rest Thursday morning, the squad will enjoy a workout in the Georgia Tech gymnasium for the purpose of limbering up their traveling kinks. Coaeh Rupp stated that the team was in good condition and that they were displaying their old time zip and drive. This was sadly lacking on their last southern trip. The ten men who will make the trip are not yet known but It is thought that they will be as follows: Capt. Carey Splcer, Little George Yates, Charley Worthlngton, Jake Bronston, Bill Trott, Ercel Little, Darrel Darby, Ellis Johnson, and Forest Sale. For some reason, despite the capable treatment given Johnson's Injured ankle, the member has failed to improve to any great extent and unless the injury Is greatly improved before traveling time Johnson will not make the trip. Barring upsets the 'Cats should win their first game with North Carolina State Friday. According to Coach Rupp, North Carolina State is a greatly underestimated team, and despite their percentage of 500 he is sure that they will be one of the strongest teams in the tournament. It would be well to remember that in past tourneys, teams from the Carolinas have won the majority of championships. North Carolina won three consecu-(Continuon Page Four) BRADEN SCORES MODERN AMERICA University Vespers, Sunday, Is Dedicated to Comemmo-ration of Birthday George Washington of In keeping with the spirit of the occasion, the university vespers Sunday afternoon were dedicated to a commemoration of the birthday of George Washington. Dr. Arthur Braden, president of Transylvania College, gave an address on "The Spirit of Washington and Modem Life," and the music was also of a patriotic nature. Dr. Braden pointed out the failure of modern America to live up to the example of its predecessors, and to carry on the noble principles of Washington and other leaders. He scored our age on four counts, namely, character, patriotism, public service, and religion, in all of which he believes we fall far below the standards set by our first president. He pointed out the political corruption of present-da- y officials, citing the upheavel In Chicago as an example, and in contrast he reminded us that Washington served his country for 45 of his 68 years without any pay. Indeed, he went further and bought provisions for his soldiers out of his private Income. In further proof of Washington's humbleness of spirit, he quoted from two letters, one in which an officer in Washington's army suggested to his general that he should attempt to become a monarchlal ruler of the United States, and the other Washington's reply to his devoted colonel charging him never to make such a suggestion where he would hear of It again. A special feature of the musical program was the soprano solo sung by Mrs. W. H. Hansen, of Lexington, "My Days Have Been So Wondrous Free." This song was the first one composed in America of which there is any record It was dedicated to Washington by Hopklnson, and was the favorite song of the president.
