February FRANKFORT DEC. 7TH SCHEDULE FOR CO-E- D Cadets and Band Drill Daily For the Inaugural Parade " The cadets and band are now drilling daily in preparation for the parade at the Inauguration of Governor A. O. Stanley at IFrankfort, December 7. Lieutenant Underwood said' that he expected 380 members of the battalion would make the trip. In the inaugural parade of four years ago, when Governor McCreary took the oath of office, the University cadets made a much better showing than the State militia and other or ganizations, and their- excellent ap pearance was freely commented on. The Commandant and all his officers are confident that the battalion's showing this year will eclipse that of 1911. Lieutenant Underwood left Saturday for New York where he will attend the Artoy-Navfotoball game Thanksgiving, but will return in time to see that the cadets are properly whipped into shape and ready to uphold the good reputation of the military department of State University. y Misses Innes and Heller Are Nucleus Around Which Team Will Be Built PROSPECTS ARE GOOD 29, Kentucky Wesleyan, Although student Interest Is focused on the big football game tomorrow with Tennessee, ere long the two basketball squads will be the topic of conversation around the University campus.

The Vols' will attempt to make it three, straight agajnst Kentucky, and the Blue and White team is determined to get redress for the wrongs of the past two seasons. The game will be called at 2:30 o'clock. Many and varied reports have come from Knoxville stating that the Ten nessee boys will be seriously handi capped by the heavy injured list; however, Coach Tigert, the team, and local followers are not taking much stock in this, as they believe the Vols will be as strong when they oppose Kentucky tomorrow as when they went down to Nashville for the Var- derbilt drubbing. They held Mississ ippi A and M. Saturday a week ago and since then have shown steady improvement, while the Wildcats who were trained "to the very minute for the Purdue victory, have shown signs of relaxation and stolen ess. Simpson has been complaining of a bad cold, Thompson of a "charley horse" and Brittain has not been able to appear in a uniform for the past three or four days. The first two named will be ready for the fray, but it is still doubtful about Britain's playing. His absence from the line would lessen the home boys' chances for victory ,by several points, as well as cause Coach Tigert considerable worry concerning the of the defense. Corn, Clayton or Heick will get the call for guard and Thompson more than likely will be called upon to fill Brlttaln's place on defensive end. Otherwise, the line-uwill probably be as that which startd against Purdue: Crutcher, left nd: Server, left 'tackle; Dempsey, center; Simpson, right guard; Thompson, right tackle; Keliey, right end; Kinne, quarterback; Grabfelder, left half; Haydon, right half, and Captain Schrader, fullback. p (Continued on Page 3) WILDCAT SCHEDULE.
