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.

Owens gave a report in chapel Tuesday of the Student Convention Movement Volunteer which was held at Des Moines, Iowa, 4 and was atDecember tended by eleven of the Universitr students. "There were 8,000 regular delegates 1,000 universities and representing colleges from the United States and other 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 was ours. "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." e Patronize Our Advertisers Fail To Make Up Loss in University's Ranks CLASSES RESUMED The second semester of the scholastic year of the University began Tuesday, with a total registration of 946 shown in the registrar's office Wednesday at noon. This numnew and ber Includes the former students who have entered for the ensuing term, but who were not at the University of Kentucky last term. The total registration Is slightly less than the number, 989, who were in college at the close of the last semester. Several reasons have been given for this decline in attendance, including the natural reaction following the war; the high cost of living in Lexington ; and the lack of dormitories at In a few cases, the University. courses have been completed this semester by students who were out of school for one term while serving in the army. Among the former students who have returned this year are Eliza and Katherlne Weakley.

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 of $150. According to a recent survey made by the University Loan Committee, of which Professor W. E. Butt is chairman, 277 students are earning money are earn 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. half or 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 of Agriculture whoso homes are In counties traversed by the lines of tho donors. Tho duration of the average loan Ordinarily the is about two years. noto becomos duo ono year from the student's graduation. x e two-third- Patronize Our Advertisers E Notable Kentucky Speakers on Four-Da- y Program j URGED The Eighth Annual Farm and Home Convention held at the University of Kentucky from January inclu sive, and attended by more than a thousand persons, was considered the most successful of local farm conventions yet held.
