This year, for the first time in the history of this publi
cation, The Kernel has been entirely edited and printed on the university
campus. It now owns a complete printing plant, which is also operated
by students of the journalism department and although this department of
the paper is not, as yet of such a large calibre, all indications point to a
greater development in tins department within the next few years. It is
even hoped that the present two-pag- e
press can be exchanged for a four-pag- e
machine next year.
Not only along mechanical lines has The Kernel been improved during
the past year, but its entire style and make-uhave been changed and
the news columns of its pages lengthened three inches. Advertising in this
year's publication has run on a heavier average than ever before. This
goes to prove that the local merchants and foreign advertisers are noticing
the progression of the paper. It has been the policy of the editor, throughout
his term of office, to keep The Kernel as well balanced in news, feature,
editorial and humorous material as possible and to present to the student
body, through the editorial columns of the paper, problems which he thought
were of the greatest interest and which needed most attention. He sincerely
hopes that his efforts have not proved futile.
In closing, the retiring stall" of The Kentucky Kernel wishes to congratulate those who will have the opportunity and honor of editing this paper
and sincerely hopes that they will find room for still greater improvement
.than that which has been made during the past year.

THE RETIRING STAFF
Twenty years ago at Blue Ridge, in the rugged mountain peaks of North
(By CARL M. GAMBILL)
Carolina, there was inaugurated an annual meeting of men students of the
colleges and universities of the Southland under the auspices of the student.
Berea has no mouth nor tongue
In the two decades that have elapsed since that time these with which to speak, but when she is
Y. M. C. A.
meetings have assumed gigantic proportions and the annual conference
is now regarded as one of the salient features of the year's program of
each local Y.M.C.A.
This year the men students' conference will again be at Blue Ridge and
the meeting will extend from June 14 until June 24. Nor are the girls forgotten for they too will have a conference there immediately preceding that
of the men. The girls' meeting will be held under the auspices of the
The University of Kentucky Y.M. and Y.W.C.A. are taking an
active part in this year's program. At a recent meeting the Y.W.C.A.
elected five delegates. The Y.M.C.A. expects to have at least ten men from
the University of Kentucky attend this year.
According to students and faculty men who have attended these con
ferences in former years, the ten days spent at Blue Ridge are very en
joyable ones. The friendships there formed, the opportunity afforded of
hearing some of the foremost speakers of the nation, and the hikes and
sports amid the scenic beauties of the North Carolina mountains, combine
to form an experience which they say can never be forgotten.
The Kernel commends this work of the Y. M. C. A. in bringing together
for ten days boys from the different colleges of the South under such lead
ers as has Blue Ridge. Such a conference as this cannot fail to accomplish
much good in creating a spirit of friendship between the different views
of the individual students, and in developing them into
Christian gentlemen who will be a credit to their state and nation.
This issue marks the final edition of The Kernel which will be pub
lished by the 1924-2- 5
staff, as the new, recently elected executives will begin
.their official careers tomorrow, their first official issue appearing on the
campus on Friday, April 23. The old staff, in retiring from office at such
.an early date, is merely following out the custom which has been the policy
of The Kernel throughout the history of its existence on the campus in
order to give the new staff the opportunity to become fully acquainted and
accustomed to its duties before returning to their work next fall.
It is not without a feeling of regret that the old staff steps aside from
its respective desks and beats to make room for those who are so fortunate
as to have the honor of taking part in the publication of this, one of the
leading college weeklies in the South, for the forthcoming year. But for
.everything that has a beginning there is an end and so it is by the liand
of destiny that the present staff gives up those duties that it has enjoyed
so much in performing and through which source it has derived a great
amount of valuable training, to those who will take up the task where the

Pierce had completed the graduate student course at Westing-hous- e
