Pigman Ted Strunk THE SUMMER SESSION There is a constantly growing demand for the services of the graduates of the University in the profession of teaching. To fulfil that demand adequately, and at the same time to give those already in the profession of teaching. To fulfil that demand adequately, one of the chief functions of the summer school, held each year at the University. Not that this is its only function. The summer school offers to the student, who desires to complete his college course before the usual four years, an opportunity to do so, and it affords those students who have neglected some studies a chance to redeem themselves. But there are other matters, too, that need our consideration. There is the attractive program that has been planned for the twelve weeks, during which the summer school will be in session. Dean Taylor, who is in charge of the summer term, is making every effort to see that the teachers' and students' stay here will be an enjoyable one. In connection with this, a series of Bluegrass tours have been planned which will give the students a chance to view many of the .historic and scenic places around Lexington. The University will also present each registered student with a season ticket to the Redpath Chautauqua which will give a week's program here beginning July 3. Each year, the summer school has proved more popular and University authorities believe that this summer it will not prove less so. The Kernel, having observed the summer session of past years, believes that the University's hope will Be more than realized, and that those teachers and students who come to the University this summer will find the time spent to be most profitable as well as enjoyable. FINISH COLLEGE Many students in college today are disillusioned. They wonder if the time spent in college is, after, all, of any considerable worth. Some have the idea that it is simply the "bunk," and that it is wholly unnecessary in making life a success. We know, too, that it was not so long ago that the requirements of the day were fully met by the man without a college education. We believe, however, that such times have passed. One must remember that the present and future work of life is becoming ever more specialized. Competition is keener. The mind that is trained to think and reason by four years of hard college study will be better able, we believe, to solve those problems one must meet in competition with other minds, in the eternal struggle for success in life. The sacrifices college students make by coming to college for four years, if there are any worthy of mentioning, are well rewarded in the ultimate results gained by the study. Like a small brook, whose course can so easily be changed by canals, so that it takes a different ,route, so with the same facility can one change the course of his life and its ultimate achievements by dropping out of college. To avoid being disillusioned and losing courage may require continual effort on the part of the student, but how thankful ho will be some day if he "sticks." While numbers of men without a university or college education have been, are at the present time, and will continue to be successful, statistics show that those having the advantage of a college education have forged of the successful ahead in all walks of life. men and women in the United States recorded in "Who's Who" have a college education.

The country needs in professions and in statesmanship men and women of vision, with jcharacter and with a sense of citizenship, who are trained to think for ithemselves; men and women who have an investigative attitude toward the problems of life; men and women who, because of their habit of trained thinking nave the power to succeed in whatever they undertake. 1 he Critics In (By Ollie M. James) Handel's "Mesiah," that magnificent tonal epic of the Christ, will be presented again on May 9 by the Central Kentucky Choral Society, a coalition of the finest amateur and professional singers in the Bluegrass. This program, now about to be sung and played for the eighteenth annual time, embraces the most proficient vocalists procurable in Lexington, Winchester, Frankfort, Georgetown, Paris, and Berea, several noted soloists in the oratorical field, and the University Philharmonic orchestra, which has won distinction of accompanying the work after a long period of preparation. The University glee club will furnish individual voices, but will not take part en masse. Of all sermons in song, this work The is undoubtedly the greatest. prophecies of an Isaiah have never sounded more significant than through this pronouncement. The angel song "Peace On Earth," has never been surpassed, as a symbolization of the suffering and death of the Savior, nor our salvation through him more poig nantly and glorifying translated that in that poem of song, the "Hallelu iah Chorus." The Messiah is in n cul tegrally a part of ture, and has been reproduced yearly by choral unions in England for over a hundred years. Prof. Carl A. Lam- pert, head of the University musical department, has been signally honored with the direction of the classic, the presentation of which is being sponsored by the University. The arrival of a large number of Algerian and Moroccoan paintings by Louis J. Endres, which are now on formal display in the Art Center, will gladden the hearts of the artistically inclined students. The paintings have as their motif the local color of the most interesting cities in north Af rica. The canvases portray the rath er unusual architecture of the coun try, witn its kaliedoscope decorations and the crumbling turreted walls of the cities punctuated by huge arched gateways. Natives in their picturesque garb form many interesting portraits. The artist made the most of his genuine traveling to points in search of subjects which had hitherto been considered unsafe for travel.

Harold Wynn BUSINESS MANAGER James Shropshire Univ. 74 Phones 6800 ADVERTISING MGR. Fred Conn ASSISTANT Virgil L. Couch :: Affording as it does, the one time of the year when teachers of the state may assemble to discuss their mutual problems, the Kentucky Educational Association fulfils a vital need in the educational program of Kentucky. Perhaps no other body than this one derives a greater degree of benefit from the association of its members. Annually now, the K. E. A. has met,"discussed and solved a large number of those problems that must inevitably confront the educator. This year, again assembled in their convention halls, and with some of the most celebrated educators in America on the program to guide their thought, this body of men and women, to whom Kentucky must look to ihstruct its youth, cannot but find inspiration and a new sense of accomplishment in the task which they have set for themselves. The Kernel, assuredly, hopes that this may be so, and that on the close of their meeting they may return once again to their work, reinvigorated in their life's purpose, inspired again with the vision of their calling.

Kid" "The Patent-Leath"Flanders' fields of poppies, the teeming East Side of New York, the entangletrenches and barbed-wir- e ments of No Man's Land, New York cabarets, boxing arenas and night life, and field hospitals behind the front are all in Richard Barthelmess latest, "The Patent Leather Kid," which will entertain Kentucky theater goers beginning Sunday. The story, as Rupert Hughes wrote it, involves a prize fighter, the Patent Leather Kid, who was the biggest drawing card of his day because of his widely hated affectations and his sleek, shiny hair. The Kid's extraor dinary character, his refusal to don the uniform of his country and his amazing adventures overseas consti tute the framework of the story which very nearly resorts to deus ex ma- china in order to secure a happy end ing. You won't notice this, however, with Barthelmess acting, as only Mr, Barthelmess can act this type of characterization, and Molly O'Day, dear old Molly, on the feminine end of the usual osculations.

The father is sending three children through college, and the drain upon his resources is evident. We reproduce it, believing that other sons who read it will remember that their parents, too, are making sacrifices for their sakes and the only reward that most of them ask is "good grades at reasonable prices, manhood and womanhood worthy of the dreams and ideals of right thinking men and women. Editor's Note. St. Louis, Mo., February 15, 1928. Dear Bob: I received your letter, also one from Dick and Lucille. I am sorry, Bob, to have written as I did, but I was worried. I just couldn't seem to see my way clear and felt that you were spending more money than you needed to. I think you, will agree with me when you stop to figure. Your deposits have been in round numbers $500, in addition to your band money, and $15 I gave you when you left, making more than $500 you have spent so far, for you have only a balance of $29 or $30. You can easily see that would run up to $1,100 or better for the year, which would be $200 or $300 "more than either Dick or Lucille would receive. I am not finding fault, Bob, but I just ask you to be careful for I am anxious to help you all, all I can, and I surely want you to have the best education I am able to give you, for I believe I know what is in you, and that you 'are capable of making good so that some day I may look to you with considerable pride, happy that I was able to help you. Just this thought you are a member of Martin and Sons, and your cooperation is much needed for the success of the firm. I am glad that Ted is such a loyal friend to you, and I know if you will take him into the firm he will help you to make it win, and also help yourself at the same time. I have cashed in some Liberty Bonds and am shifting my insurance to get some ready cash. These are sacrifices I am glad to mace, even if I will, have to work harder in years to come to close the gap between me and my old age, should I be fortunate enough to enjoy that privilege. I just want you fellows to get down and dig for I have to and make the most of your opportunities. Then I need not worry or worry you with my problems- You and Dick go right on at the houe as you had planned to do. I would suggest this that you sit down, when you have time, figure your necessary expenses, then budget what you think a fair amount of spending money a month, add it all up and send it to me, keeping a copy for yourself. Then try to live within that budget. Have Ted figure with you, if you like, and I am sure we'll come out O. K. I hope, Bob, I have made myself understood, for I wouldn't hurt "you for a good deal, and I believe I have always been a good Dad to you, and still want to be for I love you all.
