PAGE SIX THE KENTUCKY KERNEL Ruler of Reptile Kingdom Is Collegians Dethrone "College Humor" PRESIDENT UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY Dethroned by Latest Arrival (By W. A. Kirkpatrick) "Nitro," the larpe diamond-bacrattler that has reigned supreme in the reptile kingdom of the zoology department of the University for the past few weeks has been dethroned and is no longer the center of attraction. He gave his high position to the more important arrival, which, the keeper says, is his grandfather that arrived from Texas last Tuesday. Ray Stadeiman, snake keeper, and Doctor Funkhouser, dean of the graduate school, were very enthusiastic over the new arrival which is much like "Nitro," except he is larger. A letter was dispatched by Doctor Funkhouser thanking the donor of the reptile fifteen minutes after the snake was placed in the cage. C. J. Meredith, state superintendent of wardens of the Kentucky Game and Fish Commission, who is in Texas purchasing quail to restock Kentucky, found the snake and sent it to Doctor Funkhouser. There was a great battle when the reptile was taken from the box and although spectators ran affrighted from the room, Stadeiman seemed to enjoy the fight. The reptile is more than twelve inches in circumference, six feet long, and weighs eighteen pounds. "Nitro" has been supreme in the dominion of the zoology department since his arrival at the University. For a short time before he arrived all was quiet, for none of the reptile kingdom remained to molest the peaceful surrounding. All the others had died when their keeper tried to it- - f. f Humorous" Magazine Will Not Have Sole Reprint Rights on Collegiate Wit force them to eat. Roy Stadeiman began his operations at the University at the beginning of school last September, when he opened the first and only snake dairy operated in Lexington. Sixteen robust timber rattlesnakes constituted the reptile kingdom. At that time these were daily "milked" for their venom. The students were so accustomed to regular cow milk dairies, 41 I l. nit: uuwetui, iiiuk .41. jjiujixl juuvuu iui be a financial failure, and the snakes, probably temperamental because of lack of appreciation, began to pine away and die, until ony nine were left.

Mr. Rat, instead of submitting to being made a meal, turned on the snakes and killed four of them. Not only that, but he ate the tender parts that struck his fancy. This left five snakes, including King Oscar, the ruler of the cage. A few days later Stadeiman decided the snakes must be hungry, since the rat had not suited their tastes, and reso-te- d to forcible feeding. Then, from some unknown cause, all the snakes took sick and died, among them King Oscar.

"Our reason for breaking the contract," said Albert Salisbury, president of the association, "is that we feel that College Humor is painting a picture of flaming youth which is not real, and which gives to the aver-erareader a false idea of college life. "The magazine takes all the gin and sex jokes and plays them as representative college humor, with- no mention of any other type. College magazines bury the gin and sex jokes, with a greater proportion of clean humor just as representative of college life." The action was unanimous.'

Gentlemen: Two years ago my wife gave me an xpensive pipe. I smoked it a great Jeal for two or three weeks, put it aside, ihen began smoking it again. This time it was very strong. Veterans told me that it had been smoked too hard for a new pipe and should be put away. The pipe was laid away again. A short time ago I got it out and smoked one of the common brands of tobacco in it. The results were disappointing. I told the druggist of my experience with it. He asked if I had tried Edge-wort- h. I told him I never had. I followed his suggestion, and I am honest wnen I say that it has restored the jweetness to the pipe, and has made .ne wonder. Was it the pipe or the brand of tobacco that caused me to ;ay it away for the long period of time? As a novice, I prefer Edgeworth. I am going to stick to it, as I feel satisfied that there is none better on tht market. Sincerely yours, Philip C. Shera H HEADQUARTERS F. C.
