'01 '1.1 CLASS REUNIONS This year the officers of the Alumni association will inauRiirnte what has Ioiir been n much needed factor in the activities of our Alumni association: a system of class reunions. This feature is one of the biRRest factors in the annual homecoming of alumni in most of the universities and coIIorcs in the United States. The class of 1908 this year held its first reunion on the campus, and if we are correctly informed, it was the first reunion of any class Wo do know for sure that it was in the history of the University. the most successful reunion that any class of the University lias over held. An account of that reunion, written by one of the members of the class, appears in another column on tins pape. Some Alumni associations use a system of reunions whereby the four classes that were in school at the same time meet at the homecoming. While this is a most successful way in which to run reunions, the officers of this association believe that it is better for our needs to have classes from the earliest down to the youngest gathering This, in their estimation, makes of in reunions at the same time. the association a body more closely knit as a whole and not one made up of groups from different periods. The system that has been planned already has been announced in an earlier issue of The Kernel. Classes graduating five years apart from the first on down to the last will meet this year. Those classed will be as follows: 1869, 1874, 1879, 1889, 1894, 1904, 1909, 1914, 1919, 1924, and the class of 1927. By this system you can see that alumni of all ages will be present at this reunion. Next year classes jumps down to the class beginning with 1868 and coming in five-yeBy this system of 1925 and the class of 1928, will hold reunions. each class will hold a reunion every five years. In the jast the homecoming of the Alumni has been more or less of a haphazard affair, a reunion of all classes and with no especial organization. This we hope to correct this year. The plans which are still in the formative stage already call for a separate meeting place for each class, with meetings and programs for each class. This will be added to the general meetings and entertainments which will include all the classes present along with all others who return home. A system of class reunions is not begun with the idea of letting only the members of the classes in reunion return for homecoming, but with the idea of increasing the number who return, and to make it more interesting for the homecomers. Work has already been started leading to an organization of each class that will hold a reunion this year. Further plans will be made and announced in subsequent issues of The Kernel on this page. Watch for them and make plans to help the officers made this initial effort a success. THE WORD "ALUMNI" We use the word Alumni strictly meaning the male graduates of a university, college or other institution of learning, to mean all the members of the Alumni association of the University, both male and female. The use of the word in this sense was recently accepted and made standard by the American Alumni council, in its constitution. Article one of that constitution reads: "The name of this association is the American Alumni Council. The word 'alumni' is construed to' include both alumni and alumnae." This merely to indicate that our association takes in both the male and female graduates of the University of Kentucky.

ClilTord The members of the class of 1908 conceived the idea that if they had not held n reunion in 20 yenrs It was high time to hold one and the twentieth year seemed n logical time. The bag under the acorn tree Is snid to have accepted the ncorns but neglected even to look up toward the three whence they enme. Mnny of the Alumni of the University are doing well and the doors of life's opportunity were first opened to them when the doors of the University admitted them. Most of us know these things but it is equally true that the less we know about things the less we care. The '08 class wanted to see the old school to know more about it and become more interested in its welfare. The example to other class es should be inspiring. The few members of the '08 class who happen to live in LexinRton met at the call of their president, T. R. They Bryant, and talked it over. had a time when they came. A definite proRram was arranged by Dr. Davis Buckner who was made chairman of the arrangements committee. The "officer of the day," in olden times used to frequent the hall of the administration building, ring the bells to call the classes to and from, and he also did sundry errands. This officer of the day was the familiar sight in a playlet in the little theater where the hall with the bench, clock and all, were reproduced. The playlet brought up many fond reminiscences and ended with a waltz and' two-stethe dances in vogue 20 years ago. These were exemplified by "Red" Doc Rodes and Sarah Carter both in the costumes of that time. Next was lunch at "Billy Bradley's" with Billy himself in evidence. "Billy Bradley's" (the Greek's to later generations), was familiar ground and prepared all enjoyed the specially lunch. The '08 banquet on Saturday night was attended by the members of the class, their wives, husbands and a few friends. Old relics of school days aided the speeches and conversation to conjure back the real old times. At the president's dinner the following Monday, special tables were reserved for the '08 class and in between occasions campus trips were taken and the "boys and girls" visited each other. The secret of the whole success was the fact that the boys and girls were hungry to see each other, whether they realized it or not. Their real reward for coming was had in again seeing each other and the University that had done so much to make their success. he was graduated from the University.

The first meeting of that Alumni club, which was held September 17, in the grill room of the Marshall Fields men's store, was given over almost entirely to the formntion of plans for the entertainment of the team and its followers. There were twenty members of the club present and at the meeting approximately $500 was subscribed for the entertainment of the visitors. This sum is to be used in conjunction with n fund which was raised by the Kentucky club of Chicago. According to the plans made by the Chicago club, the Edgewater s. Beach hotel will be Kentucky An informal open house will be held all during the day for In the evening after the visitors. the gnmc a dinner dance will be given in the ballroom of the hotel and the football team and several prominent Kentuckians will be guests of honor. While it is against the policy of Coach Gamage to allow the members of his team to attend large social functions during the season, he has made an exception in this case and the team will be present during the dinner. On the evening preceding the game Governor Flem D. Sampson, President Frank L. MeVey, and the University band will broadcast a program over the Edgewater Beach hotel radio station. This feature has been arranged lor those who cannot make the trip with the team. The program promises to be interesting to every follower of the Blue and White. A communication from D. S. Sample, 1925, newly elected secretary and treasurer of the Chicago club, informs us that all those who drive to Chicago to the game should go directly to Michigan boulevard and go north on Route 42. This will take the motorists directly to Northwestern station. Special trains will be run from Lexington at a greatly reduced fare. The University of Kentucky club of Chicago has at present more than 80 members. It is one of the most active of the University Alumni clubs. At the meeting in September officers for this year were elected. R. H. Guerrant, 1908, was elected president, and D. S. Sample, 1925, was made secretary and treasurer. Another meeting will be held on Monday, October 15, and at this meeting the plans for the entertainment will be completed. Tickets for the dinner-danc- e can be obtained at the hotel. Seats for the game can be had by writing to Charles E. Clark, 33 South Clark street, who is chairman of the ticket committee for the Chicago club. Mr. Sample informs us that nothing is being left undone to make the day a huge success. The members of the Alumni club and the Kentucky club are expecting a record attendance and are planning accordingly.
