C. of the University of Kentucky has brought honor Every to Kentucky, to the Univorsity and to tho Military department. Kdntnckylnn who seos this, npd they will bo many, will experience a thought of nrido at "Kentucky" First. Our It. O. T. C. was the first unit in tho 'United Stntcs to report on its quota, and Unit, the alumni of "Kentucky' congratulate you. OUR FORMER SECRETARY The last Issue of tho Kernel nnnounccs the appointment of Hcrbcr as editor of the Souch Shore Press nnd the Dnldwln Record, su burban publication of New York City. Tho South Shore Press was purchased by Colonel Lloyd C. Grlscom, former diplomatic representative to Englnnd who proposes to make this the dominant newspaper of Long Island. Probably In no other nlumnus of tho University of Kentucky do tho ntnmiit ccnnrnllv feel moro interest than in Herbert Graham. As their secretary ho united them permanently In tho Alumni first nnd only full-tim- e Association of the University of Kentucky. He organized more than thirty alumni clubs, and it was largely becnuse these organizations, that tho cam pnlgn, In which he had so prominent n part, for the Grcnter Kentucky fund was successful. During his administration tho membership grew from lass than n hundred to approximately 1.200 and the plan of sending a combined student nnd alumni publication wns decided upon and the number nnd satisfaction of alumni members has proved tho wisdom of this arrangement A system of records wns built up from almost nothing to a most complete and comprehensive point. Therefore, with our congratulations go nlso our hope and confidence of success. Grahnm "At th0 ,ftst luncheon eighteen were present, mats not ciiuiikh. num havo more next time.

Lots on Winslow street have been purchased and 131 acres added to the Experiment Station farm. Professor Miller's gift of 2,000 square feet opposite the campus on South Limestone is a valuable addition to the univer sity's property. Two stations have been authorized by legislature. One of these, the gift of E. O. Robinson, gives great scope for tho university, not only in crops of all kinds, but particularly in foresty on the 15,000 tract. The other station at Princeton Is well started on a farm of 400 acres, the gift of the citizens in and around Princeton, Ky. "The acquirement of gifts might bo put down as follows: Robinson tract, 15,000 acres , ,..$150,000 Princeton tract, 400 acres 20,000 Memorial fund 85,000 Miller lots Greater Kentucky funds paid and available to university ii 12,000 80,000 r Total of gifts .1347,000 "The Greater Kentucky fund Is not complete and it has been necessary to advance funds to finish tho gymnasium and the stadium to the amount of $122,500. These sums will undoubtedly be paid. It Is ohned tffat the Memorial building may be erected In the next year or two from the pro ceeds of the Memorial fund. "It should be noted that while tho income of the university for general purposes has Increased 82 per cent, the number of students has increased 193 per cent. Tho use of general funds for construction can no longer be continued in view of the needs of instruction, yot building space Is more in demand than ever."
