R. O. T. O.
In the placing of the name of Kentucky first on the new Georgia
Stadium the R O. T. C. of the University of Kentucky has brought honor
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

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

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
