SUMMER SESSION EDITION
THE KENTUCKY KERNEL
VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE
VOLUME rX VIII
Two Terms Last Five Weeks
Each, From June 11 to
SIX COLLEGES OFFER
TOTAL OF 200 COURSES
University Plans Several Sightseeing Trips of Interest
Students will have an exceptional
schedule of 200 courses offered in six
colleges to which to accommodate
themselves in the summer session this
year. The program has been made
out to meet the needs of teachers in
both public and private high and
grade schools in junior colleges, city
and county superintendents, persons
desiring training for Y. M. C. A.,
Y. W. C. A. and social welfare service,
and normal school and college teachers, as well as undergraduates in agriculture, arts and sciences, commerce, education, engineering and law
who wish to shorten the period of
their college courses.
The normal load which the average
student will be allowed to carry is
G semester hours for each term, but
those presenting a standing of 2 or
better will be allowed a maximum
of 13 hours during the two terms.
Several courses of unusual interest
will be offered notable among which
is the one listed as Education 19a.
This course will consist of the study
of the life and work of some
who have achieved prominence. This is the first time such a
one has ever been scheduled here,
and it will le taught by 24 different
men and women on different days.
Plans are also under way for a
summer coaching school, which is to
be a short intensive program for football and basketball. It will be conducted by Coach Harry Gamage, of
the University, and Coach J. Craig
Ruby, of the University of Illinois,
and should prove a drawing card to
high school athletic directors.
The residence halls will be open at
reasonable rates and the University
cafeteria will serve meals. The opportunities offered for recreation are
many and varied. Lexington is overflowing with places of historic interest and scenic beauty and the University is planning a series of trips
for the summer school students in
order to give them the chance to become better acquainted witht the
Blue Grass section and learn to know
its wealth of attractions.
The students will also be the guests
of the University at the Redpath
chautauqua which will be in Lexington from July 3 to 10.

PLANNED FOR HEN
The time of the concert by the Ohio
State Girls' Glee Club, to be presented
in the Men's gymnasium Saturday
evening, has been moved up to 7:30
o'clock instead of 8:15 o'clock, as previously announced, according to Margaret Gooch, president of the University Girls' Glee Club, sponsoring the
Ohio organization's appearance. The
change in time was necessitated by
the Stroller dance to be given immediately following the concert.
The Ohio State club, of 35 voices,
is reported to have one of the best
vocal assemblages of its kind in the
country, arid while the exact nature
of the program which it will present
is not known, it is expected, to establish a standard of excellence for contemporary clubs to aim for. Tickets
for the attraction may be procured
from any local club member for 50
cents, half of each admission fee being used to defray the cost of the
Ohio club's trip, and the remander is
to be used to enable the local club
to sing a reciprocal engagement in
Columbus, Ohio, in May.
Marie Flora, chosen as hostess to
the Ohio girls during their stay here,
has not completed arrangements for
their entertainment as yet, however
the girls' dormitories have been selected as their dating location while
upon the campus, Miss Flora announces.
