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

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,

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
"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
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,

PATTERSON HALL IS
Student Loan Fund Expenditures Exceed Income
The expenses of the University
of Kentucky for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1930, and ending
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

Lithographs and Etchings
Are on Display; Many
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

of a cottage-cluttere- d
fusing of crazy crooked lines in the
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

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

The sharp stops and starts of white

the grading tones of the shades contained In the lithographed, produce
a unique light disbursement effect.

are "Brooklyn Bridge" and "Tanks

Rupp stated that the team was in
good condition and that they were
displaying their old time zip and

their last southern trip.
The ten men who will make the

thought that they will be as follows: Capt. Carey Splcer, Little

some reason, despite the capable
treatment given Johnson's Injured

improve to any great extent and
unless the injury Is greatly improved before traveling time Johnson
will not make the trip.

win their first game with North

Sunday afternoon were dedicated to
a commemoration of the birthday
of George Washington. Dr. Arthur
Braden, president of Transylvania

Spirit of Washington and Modem

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
