Sometimes we think it is our own compus Apollos who are bereft of opportunities to gain fabulous fortunes; again moved by a spirit of compassion, we pity most First g National Pictures who have cast aside a rare opportunity; but most of all we feel sorry for public who will not the great American picture-goin- g have the oportunity to enjoy the histrionic ability of some of the greatest potential players living in America. Following that rule of Postum "there's a reason," and the reason for this heavy loss to Kentucky students, the moving picture industry, and the American public lies in the announcement of the thirty-thre- e colleges to be visited by representatives of First National Pictures and College Humor in an at tempt to procure new and brilliant screen talent. Yes, unbelievable as it may appear, the University of Ken tucky was not included in that list! We'll admit that we were deceived. When College Humor announced that screen tests would be made and an opportunity .given for college students to star in, the movies, we hailed the announcement as a golden opportunity. Joyously we published the glad news in The Kernel and with our eagerly awaited the publication of dates when the test would be made on our campus. Then followed our disillusionment. Kentucky, noted for its fast horses, fair women, and good liquor; famed throughout all civilization for the beauties of its Blue Grass region; celebrated in literature and music for the Southern courtesy and hospitality of its Blue Grass inhabitants and as notorious in every corner of the globe for the feuds, superstitions, and folk lore of its mountaineers. Kentucky, the historical; Kentucky, the beautiful; Kentucky, the picturesque, but Kentucky, slighted in this opportunity to gain fame for itself and to perform a real service for mankind. As we attempt to write more welling tears blur the paper before us. Alas for those university students who for weeks have thought of little else but of the rare opportunity which awaited them along the cinema trail; alas for those fond parents who saw through their children a chance for undying fame and universal plaudits; alas for the university which hereby loses a chance for deserved recognition. But we are unselfish. Sorry as we feel for our own students we pity more the picture industry and most of all the American public which must, in the final analysis, be deemed the greatest loser. Life was ever thus. money-makin- fellow-studen- ts MAY QUEEN ELECTION T ' following the announcement cessful. But that next fall the university will inaugurate the custom of having freshman week just prior to the beginning of the fall session, considerable discussion has been aroused as to whether or not the plan will be suc cessful here. Theoretically, at least, freshman week should be of great value to university and incoming freshmen alike, It has often been said that martriculating in college is starting on an entirely new phase of life, and certainly such an important undertaking should be started off as well as possible. If freshman - week teaches freshmen something about the university they are, entering, its ideals and ambitions; and enables them to discriminate between worths while and the wasteful elements of college life and to grasp something of the purpose of attending the university :if freshman week does this and in addition, makes the boy or girl "feel at home" and happy that he is a student here then the plan will be successful and every student should be for it But there is another side to the question. Fresh man week can only be successful if students of the uni versity do their part. During the period of freshman n week all will be requested to stay off the campus, according to the committee which is making the plans for the week. Undoubtedly, however, on sororities and more espec ially on fraternities, will fall a considerable responsibility in deciding whether or not the new venture will be a success. Rushing plans and policies will have to be considerably changed. The old system of "catch as catch can" will scarcely be applicable to the new order of things. On many other campuses fraternities have gentlemen's agreement not to rush during the period of freshman week. Perhaps such a rule as this is not ne cessary. But every fraternity must realize that the university comes first and that in its rushing program it must not conflict with the university plans for fresh man week. as most of the leading universities have freshman week certainly the plan should be tried and should be a success here. The Kernel is confident it will be a success and will be another milestone in the for ward march of the university.
