In retiring, the old staff cannot help but feel that it has performed a duty well accomplished. 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.

STETSON HATS A DIXIE THERE'S DEALER NEAR YOU Styled for young men - THE RETIRING STAFF Vs, ( ICE CREAM- Twenty years ago at Blue Ridge, in the rugged mountain peaks of North BEREA (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 Y.W.C.A. 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 manly clean, 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 retiring officers have left oil" and attempt to keep this student publication of the University of Kentucky where it should always be, at the head of the f ft C . - They call it the "Pierce Type" When the class of '15 at Maine was beinggrad-uate- d, the name "Pierce" meant no more in the fieldof metering p.. t. pierce tian Sweeney or Jones.

He designed a system that operates on a new and different principle, and that has met with general acceptance in the Central Station field. He also was active in the recent of the entire Westinghouse instrument line. It was only a few months after Pierce had completed the graduate student course at Westing-hous- e that he was given an assign ment in the instrument section of the engineering department. He took it merely as a "fill-ih- " job. Soon he saw that instruments play a vital part in every electrical operation. As an instrument engineer, Pierce spent several weeks on the U. S. S. Tennessee and the Colorado during their trial runs. He has ridden in the cabs of electric locomotives. He is in closer touch with radio than anyone not a radio engineer. A design engineer comes continuously in contact with sales negotiations, and Pierce's contact with them proved so beneficial that he was lately made head of the Instrument Section of the Sales Department, which means that he really has charge of the sale df all instruments to Westinghouse customers. stinghouse .A- 4 y
