GRIFFITH KENTUCKY KERNEL PLATFORM A Campus Beautiful University Expansion Dissemination of University News to Kentucky Strict Observance of Laws and Better Scholarship COURTESY (By Wilbur G. Frye, Edwards M. Templin, Roy H. Owsley) How sweet and gracious, even In common speech; Is that fine sense which men call Courtesy! Wholesome as air and genial as light, Welcome in every clime as breath of flowers, It transmutes aliens into trusting friends, And gives its owner passport round the globe. Thus wrote James T. Fields. He spoke of courtesy in the practical interpretation of the word and not in a poetic hallucination that his words perchance would come true in the dim ages when unpreparedness to do those things one ought to prepare against would find the timid few without an idea of that which he wrote. Thus spoke the soul of a man who knew from experience just how rare a true sense of courtesy is to be found in those with whom we deal daily, and of whom we expect the same attitude as has been extended before in a certain set of similar circumstances. It can be seen that those poetic words may mean something even today when the march of higher civilization connotes in the no longer savage breast some of the finer feelings that were found lacking in the days when despotism reigned supreme, and which, because it did reign in that exalted position, felt that there should be no end to the evil deeds dared to be done, And again, Milton has written in that vision blessed with true Insight into men rather than material things: Shepherd, I take thy word And trust thy honest offer'd courtesy, Which oft is sooner found in lowly sheds With smoky rafters, than In tap'stry halls, And courts of princes. Thus again it can, be seen that courtesy is a tone of character that one finds in the least expected places, and falls to find hi those whom one has been taught to honor and revere as persons Incapable of emanating the faintest stigma from within that aura of chaste beneficence. In so far as possible, The Kernel long has tried to be courteous, and if a retort were needed, to make the retort courteous. It long has been inclined to drape foul places with kind words as a sort of soothing balm for wounds whose edges time has failed to heal with ointment courteously placed thereon. This week The Kernel is publishing a special edition for the sole puriose of being courteous. The capable business manager of The Kernel, in his laudable zeal to produce a bigger and better paper, oversold advertisements to men who were depending on his word that they would be published and brought to the attention of the student body of the University. Last week's paper could not carry all of these advertisements, so it became necessary at the last moment to produce another paper from the tired brains of the editors, who have labored long and unceasingly in their elforts to promote the interests of The Kernel. Disappointment of the advertisers was not to be considered, since they have given the paper enough space this year, on the average, to show more than seventy per cent of the total space available, thus forcing the exclusion of University news that should have been printed. In all the years that The Kernel has been Issued at the University of Kentucky, there has never been an issue before the Christmas holidays which carried a date line later than December 14, because the departmental heads, staff nnd editors realized that even ft journalist is entitled to that rest that may be found even In lowly shed with smoky rafters. It was thought for n time that such honest oiTcr'd CHRISTMAS GREETINGS December 20, the day that we have long looked forward to for so many long weeks. At noon tomorrow wc will be released for two glamorous weeks of vacation, but then we must return to bondage January 3, and labor all the more diligently to make up for those two weeks of playtime. Hear ye, all of you who nttend the University and hearken unto what the Kernel says. Let not the beauty and sparkle of the windows down In town beguile you into cutting the last hour before the vacation, for remember It has of the dire penalty of the loss of one-tenyour final standing. Also contemplate that the first hour after the vacations has the same fine, so don't allow any charmingly seductive voices at home persuade you to anything that you know that you shouldn't do. The Kernel wishes to point out to all of you the deeper side of Christmas. Some 2,000 years ago a little baby was born In a manger, shepherds watching In the" fields saw and marveled at the star of Bethlehem moving. They followed It nnd came unto the stable in which the Christ Child was born. Travelers came from afar bringing precious gifts to the babe In swaddling clothes. Without this birth, Christmas would have never been. Had It not have been for the works of this great man, in what condition would wc all be today? He brought light into the world with His coming and left it here after He had to leave His earthly home. We have our personal rights and freedom given to us from a government which Is founded upon the Bible text. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR! courtesy ns had been extended In the past to the publication on this campus, which Is alleged to be a paper by and for students of the University, would be courteously extended again from the court of princes. And the type But It did not materialize! slaves have been hard at It again, working so that others may fill their cofTers with the luscious fruit which to some Is ns welcome as nlr and genial as light, ns the breath of flowers. And no wonder I As Fields says, It gives Its owner passport round the globe. But it is to be hoped that n moral lesson will be learned from It. To the students of the University, to the members of the faculty, and to those of you who read and arc neither, this Issue connotes courtesy. It Is a monument to the things friends will do for each other. It is n tribute to the tie that binds the three heads of The Kernel. This is the motto of the three, written by Cowper: man A moral sensible, and well-bre- d Will not affront me, no other can. Life Is not so short but that there Is time enough for courtesy (Emerson). The three of us have found It that way, even at the expense of a much needed vacation from the arduous duties of the day. But let us look at the other side of It for a moment! There Is always a positive and a negative pole to everything existing in the world, whether It be temporal or incorporeal. So far, the positive side of it has been discussed. Let us think what shame would descend . upon us if there were a lack of the positive. Let us ponder over the results of negation. There is hardship, and worry, and demoralization, and lost faith In THE DUTY OF STUDY those things or persons we trust. As it so aptly has been expressed In Cymbellne, Students Are Obligated to Develop Dissembling Courtesy! How fine this tyrant I Scholasticism i Can tickle where she wounds! I In a certain old Book which is not as much Although there is far more than that to the negative side of it, The Kernel does not want read as it deserves, there s a cry: "My people to discuss it, in as much as it destroys finer are destroyed for lack of knowledge," and "My ideas about the graciousness of it, even In com people do not think.

In that same excellent volume there is given So we come to the end with a thought for all who read these lines, and between them take as part of the highest duty of man: "Thou home over this Christmas vacation a resolve shalt love the Lord thy God . . . with all to be fair with Courtesy and to treat her as if thy mind." Now these words bring to many she were more precious than gold and the gos undergraduates, even those who call themselves samer webs of endeavor.

The greatest care had to be taken to prevent fond but foolish relatives from smuggling in the coveted sausages or beer which destroyed the benefit derived from the cure. In order to tempt specially difficult patients to eat, Mrs. Hermannsdorfer compiled a c'ookerybook, in which one can find many ways of making food comparatively savory without any addition of salt, pepper, or other spice. Tea, alcohol and coffee are only permitted in small quantities in milk, thus giving the patient an illusion rather than a taste of the coveted stimulus. Oranges and the Juice of lemons, tomatoes, raw salads, steamed vegetables are the chief part of the diet, all salted meats, ham, smoked fish, etc., are forbidden entirely; 100 grams of fresh meat are permitted Quarter-Ounc- e "Purse-Size- " thrice a week, but a patient who can In Platinum-tone- d make up his mind to do without it Case or Coloured entirely will recover the sooner.
