LAVIN TOSES COUNTER
Team Receives An Invitation
To Play Series of Games
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
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
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
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
expenses for ten men.
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 records of both these
teams for 1921 are not greatly unlike.
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. With
these facts in mind both teams aro expected to put up a bitter struggle to determine the supremacy.

Sherwood Eddy, one of the greatest
student 'speakers connected with the
Y. M. C. 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.
Mr. Eddy was engaged
Dr. John R. Mott
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
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
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.
