At the time It was dropped from the columns of this paper, it had become so well known and so synonymous with the editorial policy of The Kernel that the editors felt it no longer necessary to print it. At this time, however, it has ae necessary to add to the policies contained In the platform, so it reappears in this issue. Observing students and members of the faculty will note that a new plank has been added to the platform. That new plank, hewed from the virgin timber of students' rights as indicated by The Kernel slogan on the press maintaining the rights of those who are attending the university, concerns the repeal of the new attendance rule established a short time ago by zealous officials at Kentucky. Since that rule was announced, scores of students representing every one of the four classes and those taking graduate work have visited the editorial offices of The Kernel, asking that the paper assist in pointing out to officials the manifest injustice of the new ruling. Many letters for the student point of view column now are on file awaiting publication. The tide of sentiment against the new rule is rising swiftly over student obeisance to those who admittedly hold the hammer. In other columns of today's paper, that sentiment is being expressed because The Kernel is a student paper and so long as it does not feel the iron hand of suppression, it is going to continue to be a student paper. It is both wise and convenient at this time to point out that there is no conflict between the various planks of the platform, as might should be at first blush. Laws and observed, but the particular stress in The Kernel is directed against violation of the prohibition laws by members of the student body. It may be said that better scholarship and repeal of the attendance rule do not agree, but it is well to remember that education cannot be measured by any mathematical standard such at Kentucky who will not give a passing grade as the number of times a particular student attends a particular class. There are professors If a student is credited with four absences over months. Profesa period of four and one-ha- lf sors of similar mental vigor oftentimes cause one-thiof a final' grade to be determined by the number of absences. Others will not accept an excuse under any condition of servitude, preferring to prove to the world that higher education Is really an autocracy. It is with a feeling of compassion for Alma Mater that they in fact cannot be designated as few. Their reaction to the new rule of attendance has been that of Joy, because under it they And their medium that of dyeing the last inch of tape a crimson hue. So it is that The Kernel voices the opinion of students in this matter of repeal of the attendance rule. It is altogether fitting and proper that it do so, for it is a paper that has won national recognition as an exponent of the free press under the protection of which students gather in pursuit of academic life, liberty, and happiness. CAN YOU WRITE? By the Editor: Just as we were wondering what to do about this business of no student let ters for The Kernel point of view column, along comes the university senate, or whoever did it, with a new set of attendance rules for the dear students to read and, perforce, to observe. Presto changol All of our difficulties were dissipated along the line of too few letters. The only trouble is that now we have too many of them. It Just seems that nothing is going to alleviate that tired feeling we have from seven in the morning until one the next morning. Anyway, here are some of the letters we have In stock. From all apperances, university officials should do something FOR the student instead of discriminating AGAINST him or her in favor of the professor who, in the final analysis, is no more than the hired help. We see that we are going to go too far with some of these broad statements unless we get out the bottle of caution and pour its contents on the squeeking parts of the ribbonless, battered typewriter. (The stuff you are reading is printed with a linotype.) All professors are not that way. Some of them are such fine gentlemen we always feel as if we should hitch our wagon to them and really get somewhere in the world other than an editorial room that reminds "Bill" Ardery of a combination of hell, insanity, and contest. a To get back to the letters.

Especially has .this been true among members of the Big Ten con ference, where such organizations have found their principal function in interesting prep school graduates in their respective 'colleges. The "K" Club, besides its work along the 'lines of fellowship promotion among university Athletes, should prove an invaluable help to the university during high school week and .at the state high school tournament held in Lexington. Benefits derived from unorganized efforts of Kentucky's athletes at recent basket hall tournaments indicate to some extent the importance which may be attached to organised activity. The Kernel wishes to congratulate the men who have had the vision to complete the organization of the "K" club. It hopes that this group may not remain "Just a club," but that through capable leaders the organization may become a valuable aid in this too long neglected phase of university activity.
