Couch Lucille Short CIRCULATION STAFF Carlos Jaffoe narold Schimmel I SEE '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 e adjusted.

Grote ASSISTANTS Ted Strunk A. L. Pigman "Our School, Not Ourselves" 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. ON OTHER CAMPUSES o c WELLESLEY ,Mass.

The had mat secretly and had elected their president when a band of sophomores climbed up the tairs and broke in the door. The candles which provided he illumination went out. Unable to locate th.2 new president and carry her off as planned, the sophomores stood aside and listened gleefully to the rumpus which nsued, as the freshmen, thinking they were being at tacked by the upperclassmen, fought among themselves in the dark. No severe casualties resulted.

"Martha." These two presen tations will be given as a part of the May festival. Professor Lampert, di- ector of past presentations of the Choral Society, will be in chargo of the productions. So-it- PROSPECTOR 0- - o By LeROY SMITH The United States Naval Academy has instituted another requirement for young gobs who hope to be saluted lome time. Every candidate for grad uation must pass an examination in jolf before he can graduate. The Prospector does not wish to laugh out of turn but well, what do you hinjc about it? Coming so soon after l.he 4 disaster, this seems almost 'oo much. Imagine our gallant gobs roing forth to war with a sack of Tolf clubs swniging across each mill tant shoulder. We suggest a course n embroidery for the marines. Which reminds me that the edito ial column of The Kernel soundec "orth in the last issue with a rous ng eulogy of military training, anr igned off with the opinion that every. )ody should consider it a privilege tc e compelled to take military train ng or words to that effect which con .true the same meaning. Anyway sc nany freshmen agreed with the edito hat all six of them got together tc render a vote of thanks, and nov .wo of them won't speak to the othei our who changed their minds wher he vote was taken. (Don't get the editors quarrel with me al he time about such matters). The student at the university dif fers from the average citizen in that Mie period of resolutions begins with he second semester instead of the new year. However, it Is doubtful that the average student at the uni versity will, or can, define his mis- akes and adjust his conduct to hi: S-- A hundred thousand wishes. I was just married in June. Cleaning, cooking, sewing and such Would you think that I was asking too much If I were to cry for the moon? By the moon I mean a few little lies "My dear, you have such beautiful eyes!" Is the price too great for the tune? Oh, I shan't blame it on December, But now it's very hard to remember That I was just married in June. MARGARET CUNDIFF. AFRAID I GOODBYE TO SOME however, that of these classes comprise nore than a small majority of the '.ge group to which it belongs. The ank and file of our sane and thought-u- l older people frankly recognize th? act that in a living world changes in 'lewpoint and customs are necessary. 3n the other hand, the rank and file d young people it our 'ecognize the fact that the present is ooted in the past, grows out of the ast, and that to attempt to break vith and repudiate the past is both "utile and foolish futile because it 's bound to result in failure, foolish because, in so far as it succeeds, it "s certain to result in injury both to the individual and to society. It follows that what we need as letween these groups is not conflict, but confidence and conference and co peration. We of the older generation should seek to pass on to those who ire to be our successors the best that ve and those who have preceded us lave been able to achieve in our .earch for and interpretation of truth and in developing agencies and institutions through which truth is o be made effective in human society. And, accepting gratefully the intel ectual and spiritual inheritance which 'ias come down to them, the young should seek diligently to enlarge and mnch it. In other words, in endeavoring to nake the better world that is to be: the young and the mature should vork together, neither class despis 'ng or seeking to ignore the other. For each of these classes has its con :ribution to make to the great com non task. There is need for the guidance and the steadying influence of men and women of ripe experience, And there is need also for the fresh vision and heroic daring of those who have not yet become the victims of "nveterate prejudice or experienced the chill of defeat. E. B. CHAPPELL, Sunday School Editor of the Method ist Episcopal Church, South. As these youthful Lochincars are sent upon their chosen paths in life we are trusting that, though the way is rough, they will always retain a memory of their days at Kentucky and that whatever triumphs may be bestowed upon them they will not fail to give the old Alma Mater a little of the credit.

Lloyd Hughs and Mary Astor are featured in the production, with a cast that includes Earle Fox, Olive Tell, Ruth Dwyer and other of like ability. Miss Astor gives a very "unflapperish" portrayal in her role of Carol Trent. She believes the typical young woman of today is not a flapper, in the general interpretation of the word she is right. m More Students Use It Than Any Other Kind and if you paid double you couldn't improve on it $7 buys Want a pen for it; $5, if you want a smaller size.

While the most of us are feeling glad that "it's over for one semester," there are a certain few that possibly have a little regret minglsd with their relief, namely the seniors who finished their course at the end of this semester. For, while in general, we are the species of moron who pays an exhorbitant sum to have a professor stand up in front of us and pour forth knowledge and then shout with joy when he doss not come to class, there is not one of us who will not be sorry when the time comes for us to leave college and our collegian comrades behind and register in the higher school of experience. of I am persuaded, So, This is Leap Year together Warmed In the camp fire's glow.

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 letterwriting of The Kernel; - might have had twenty.
