Lectures on India, China, Japan, the Near East and Russia LAVIN TOSES COUNTER 15 Team Receives An Invitation To Play Series of Games in Cuba In one of the most spectacular games of the present season the University of Kentucy Basketball Team won the first of the four games scheduled on the eastern trip when it defeated the Washington and Lee Quintet at Lexington, Va., last Wednesday evening by a 21 to 20 score. This is the second defeat of the Generals this season the other lone defeat being rolled up by the strong West Virginia Team. According to dope this victory over Washington and Lee makes the wearers of the Blue and White stand in remaining a mighty good chance games to be played on this trip. The pass work of the Wildcats in the Washington and Lee tilt was excellent throughout the game. The score at the end of the first half was 12 to 9 in Kentucky's favor-- With the score a tie and just a half minute to play Lavin shot a foul which gave the Wildcats the winning point. Last year at the Tournament at Atlanta the winning point that decided the championship of the south was made under similar conditions with just a minute left to play. The results of the Washington and Lee game shows that the wearers of the Blue and White still have the old "pep" and nerve that led them to victory in 1921. Wildcats Will Go to Cuba That this sort of reputation will soon spread was amply demonstrated last Tuesday afternoon by the telegram received by Director S. A. Boles from the The Cuban Athletic Club of Havana. telegram states that the club is anxious to arrange a series of games with the Kentucky Quintet and reads as follows: "Can you arrange a basketball series at Havana, leaving New Orleans March 11 and returning March 27. We will pay Cuban Athletic expenses for ten men. Club, Havana." Whether or not this offer is accepted rests with the Athletic Council, but the offer shows how the Wildcat Bnsketeers are regarded in athletic circles everywhere.

The Cadets played seventeen games last season suffering only ono defeat, while the lone blemish onthe"Kentucky"record for 1921 was the defeat of Centre.

A. is coming to the University of Kentucky March 3, 4 and 5 to give a series of Evangelistic lectures. This is one of the greatest opportunities that the University has had along this line for Mr. Eddy brings a message for everybody and is well worth hearing. Sherwood Eddy, now a world figure in Christinn leadership, was graduated at Yale in 1891. He went to India in 1896 at his own expense- After fifteen years of work among the students of the Indian Empire, he was called to be Secretary for Asia for the International Committee of the Young Men's Christian Association. Nine years of service in this capacity among the students and officials of India, China, Japan, the Near East and Russia have been characterized by the brilliance, energy, judgment and devotion so singularly combined in this man. - In with 1912-191- 3 Mr. Eddy was engaged Dr. John R. Mott in conducting meetings for students throughout Asia. In June, 1914, Mr. Eddy returned to China for an extended campaign among the students and official classes there. Notwithstanding the war, the audiences that year averaged 3,000 a night. In Hongkong, for instance, 4,000 students and business men attended, and it was necessary to hold three meetings in three successive hours in one of the largest theaters in the city to accomodate the crowd. The officials of China from the President and down to the governors and local officials received Mr. Eddy, many of whom sent out officinl proclamations of the meetings. During the early years of the war, Mr. Eddy was with tho British army in France, and during the closing years on the American, British and French front. Since the signing of the armistice his regular work hns taken him across Asia, including Egypt, Palestine, Syria, Mesopotamia and Turkey, through tho stricken countries of Europe, and round tho world- - His twenty-four years of service in lands abroad have fitted him to deal in truer perspective with the present world situation as a moral challenge to America. In years filled with untiring activity, time has been found for useful authorship; beginning with his "Supreme Incision" there followod his books on "The Awakening of India," "Tho New Era in Asia," "The Students of Asia," "With Our Soldiers in France," "Tho Right to Fight," and his latest book "Everybody's World," interpreting present conditions in Japan, China, India, the Near East and Russia, showing America's relation to present world problems.
