KERNEL TO BE SENT TO
ALL KY. HIGH SCHOOLS
In accordance with it's policy of extension, the University has decided to
send at least two copies of the Kernel to all accredited high schools of
the State. This is a step long contemplated by' President McVey, but
could not be attempted until estimates
of the cost and work required could
be obtained and now it is assured that
each accredited high school in the
State will receive each week at least
two copies lof the Kernel.
This will greatly help to bring about
a more cordial understanding, of the
ideals, aims and activities of the student body of the lUniversity of Kentucky, on the part of the high school
students of the State, as well as their
parents and friends at home.
The Kernel in the high schools
will not only link the University more
closely to them, but will furnish a
source of good reading matter for the
students and will no doubt arouse a
community of interest and a feeling
of fellowship throughout the State.
There will be an important meeting
of the senior class Friday afternoon
in chapel. The meeting was called
by Mary Turner, vice president of the
class, for the purpose of discussing
the question of electing a now president, Ed. Dabney having completed
his work at the University, has accepted a position as lawyer with a
firm in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Other important business matters
will be discussed and it Is Imperative)

"There were 8,000 regular delegates
1,000 universities and
colleges from the United States and
Canada and from forty-threnations. Leaders were brought from
all parts of tho world to tell us of the
needs and conditions of other countries that wo might help to satisfy
those needs," said Mr. Owens. So
you can realize what a great privilege
"Mr. Haggeron, in a little book,
'You're tho Hope of the World,' recently published, said that young
America was the hope of the world.
It is true that England has her preachers, doctors, lawyers and statesmen,
but they are getting old and her
young ones lies sleeping on the battlefields of Europe. It is the present
student generation that will take
England's place. It is from the students of today that the leaders of
tomorrow will come.
"These nations are needing farm
ers, teachers, engineers, everything;
In fact, there is not a profession represented in this University or in any
other university whose exponents are
not needed. There is a wonderful op
portunity for service. Tho doors of
the world aro wido open," said Mr.
Owens In conclusion, "and every man
and woman has a chance to take that
which Is vital to those in need."

No Necessity For Students
University For Financial
The University Loan Committee,
whose funds were almost exhausted,
has received $700 in the last week
and is raising more. This committee
which has helped many worthy men
and women to get through college,
finds itself in great need of money,
having exhausted the alumni fund of
$1,050 and the small University fund
According to a recent survey made
by the University Loan Committee, of
which Professor W. E. Butt is chairman, 277 students are earning money
while at college. Forty-siing enough each week to pay all of
their expenses and an additional sev
enty-fivmake enough to meet one- s
of their expenses.
With summer earnings taken into ac
count, 125 young men (nearly one out
of five), are going through tho University on their own resources, meeting all their expenses from their Individual earnings. A few young women
also support themselves while taking
the regular courses?
The committee wishes it understood
that when a student proves real need
for funds and is able to show a record
for scholarship and a reputation for
industry and assiduity in his studies
that is above criticism, he may be
certain of help. No loan is made to
a student who has been in residence
at the University for a shorter period
than one semester and a preference is
shown to juniors and seniors.
There Is also a Southern Railway
Loan Fund of $1,000, which is available only to students of the College
