Kentucky's May Day exercises are known to the people of central Kentucky and each year hundreds of persons from surrounding towns, come to Lexington to attend the ceremonies. It is expected that the various events on the program this year will prove even more brilliant than those of former years. The presence of a news reel man at the , ceremonies indicated that Kentucky's May Day is rapidly becoming more than an affair of local importance.
