'The Revolt of Youth" seems to have become a
topic of widespread interest these days. Judging from
the numerous articles appearing in some of our promi
nent magazines and daily newspapers the ceaseless
hammering of college newspaper editors is beginning
to be felt.
This week, on the same page as this editorial, Mr.
B. Chappell, editor of Sunday school publications
for the Methodist church, South, comments with more
tolerance than one would suspect, anent the divergence
of opinions existing between the two genrations.
But why does he entitle his article "Cooperation or
Conflict?" If there be a conflict, it is a sportsmanlike
one. And as for cooperation, there has never been a
time when the und3rgraduate has been more willing to
discuss questions and to do what his authorities believe to be right.
The conflict, if one may call it such
s only in the difference in opinion, and that, The Ker
nel believes, is only as it should be. Nor will it, The
Kernel is sure, pass beyond these bounds.
It is both fair and right that students should have a
medium through which it is possible to express their
jwn opinions, even though these opinions do not hap
pen to coincide with the authorities.
But to return to Mr. Chappell's article. He speaks
f indulging in "foolish experimentation." Is any
foolish? The Kernel believes not. It is
erhaps the only way by which this modern world may

WELCOME NEW STUDENTS
The Kernel extends a warm welcome to the new
students who are about to begin their college careers
The university, The Kernel is sure, feels proud that
vou new students have selected State as your Alma
Matr. The Kernel trusts that your stay here will prove
both pleasurable and profitable.
That it say be so, there is one thing particularly,
the student must decide, namely, that which he enjoy
doing. So often, the student enters and by taking a
course of study, for which he is not in the least fit, is
unhappy throughout his life as a student. The work
assigned to him, in that case, is irksome. It soon be
comes sheer drudgery. Most of the students find out
their mistake and change. Others go grimly on, take
their drgree and trudge out into the world. They do
not find that world a pleasant one. Its surface ap
pears to be covered with a multitude of ugly tasks to
be done and for which this particular sort of gradu
ate can see no reason in doing. The Kernel would have
the students enrolling this semester escape that fate
As an example, The Kernel would point out that
because Mamma and Pappa desire Son to become a doc
tor, is no earthly reason for him becoming a doctor.
The student should know himself well enough to know
whether or not he wishes to be a doctor. If he does
not wish to become a doctor, then he should study
something other than medicine.
The medical depart
merit, certainly, will not feel hurt about the matter.

While the most of us are feeling glad that "it's over

The Kernel believes the university should have program dances. Here, in the State of Kontucky, where
chivalry is dominating characteristics of the people,
program dances should have little difficulty in gaining
precedence over the "cut in" dance, now in vogue.
It is queer, one must admit, to be dancing with a
girl and have someone take hold of your arm and remove it, as much as to say, "step aside, please." With
the present system there is a constant shuffle and
crowding on the floor which, to tell the exact truth
means that one is jostled about on the floor as a football man is on the gridiron.
The Kernel believes that the university has outgrown the present method of "cut in" and believes it
would be an advantage to both parties concerned to
inaugurate the system of program dances.
The Kernel would like to hear the opinion of the
student body on the question. This can be done by
