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

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.

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.

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.

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"

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

According to plans that have been
made by the University of Kentucky
club of Chicago, Alumni, students and
friends of the University of Kentucky
will be loyally entertained when they
visit Chicago to sec the football game
between the Wildcats and Northwestern. 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
Beach hotel will be Kentucky
An informal open house
will be held all during the day for
In the evening after
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.

of Chicago has at present more than
