E. Winship, of Boston, editor of the Journal of Education, speaking to tTie student body in chapel last Thursday morning on the subject, "The Aim of University Education." "Intelligence is the horse power of your machine. It is the thing which you have at your command when you need it." The function of the University is to tell people where to go to get information that is reliable. No one who doesn't get the latest and can be most authentic information a success in life. The secret of success consists In doing the right thing at the right time, the speaker said. To know how to do this one must have Intelligence. One of the principal things that a college teaches Is to know what to do at the s right time. One comes against every day which he never en countered before. The persons who overcome them are the ones who have Intelligence. People Progress spells success. have just come to realize that what one does yesterday is of no vahle; It is what one expects to do tomorrow that is important. The only reason that people did not have the same Inventions and comforts in 1817 that we now have In 1917 Is that the learn-omen of that time spent their time on their grandfathers instead of think ing of some way to benefit their grandchildren. Chaldea, Egypt, and the rest of the Ancient World occupied their time instead of studying some method to combat disease. No one could qual ify as a man of brains If he did anything for humanity; it was beneath the dignity of a scholar. They were looking (backward, not forward. The speaker said that he was impressed with the fact that the men who fire the cannon on battleships are twenty feet oolow tho deck and never see the target at which they are aiming. They are directed in their firing hy two men who are In the rigging and who, hy means of electrical appliances, tell them where to put tho cannon In vertical and in horizontal. Their work consists in getting the swell of the sea and directing the firing of the cannon when the ship gets on tho level. The function of the faculty Is analogous to the duty of the men in the rigging. They tell how to get the swell of time. Every one must aim, prtipo-sition- d (Continued oa Fife S) co-e- 'T OFFER IS ACCEPTED Adjutant - General Wires That Corps Is Established FAIRFAX INSTRUCTOR The War Department's acceptance of the University's offer to establish a reserve officers' training corps at the University of Kentucky was received last week by President Henry S. Barker from Adjutant-GenerThe following telegram was received from the War Department: "Bulletin issued establishes infantry unit senior division officers' training corps at your institution." At present it is uncertain when the military course will be instituted at the University. When it was decided by the authorities to establish the course, it was thot it would go Into effect In September, at the beginning of the next school year, but Captain John C. Fairfax, commandant at the University, in an Interview said that receipt of further Instructions from Washington may result in its establishment sooner.

Tho command rang out as clearly as it ever sounded to seasoned veterans on the of the battlefield, and seventy-fiv- e came to attenUniversity's fair tion before the commandant. The time was Monday night, the place, Buell Armory, and the girls, as said before, seventy-fivof the University's most patriotic daughters, assembled for instruction in signalling and first-aiwork. For discipline the commandant decided to devote the first lessons to drilling, "just like the boys do." Those who camo for a lark soon settled down to real work as the commandant and hls cadet officers nut them thru the simple movements of "About face! and "Halt, one, two!" Visions of squad drill inflicted by the Dean on Saturday afternoons flitted thru the brains of the frivolous ones, but their giggles changed to anxious looks at the commandant, who refused to crack a smile. For an hour and a half they worked, and just as they were beginning to feel like real soldiers they heard the magic sound, 'Fall out." s e The company of girls will learn drill movements, Red Cross, signal corps work, and will participate and first-aiin other training that will make them prepared to take up actual servico whenever needed. Regular drill will bo held in Buell Armory and practice in telegraphic signalling and other branches of Signal corps work will be given. First-aiwork will be taught both by Captain Fairfax and Dr. J.

After the stellar Wildcat stickers had trimmed Tennessee by the shutout route and minced Miami five to a bedraggled one, Illinois came along Monday afternoon and tendered the wearers of the Blue and White their first setback of the 1917 season by winning from them by the score of 2 to 0. The brace of tallies came in the InRemembering that caitial stanza. tastrophic inning McClellan probably went to his room and dreamed that he was an interned German liner being hacked to pieces by members of the crew. The game started off propitiously when the lead-of- f man succumbed to Mac's twisters, but Wild- cat stock took a downward swoop with safeties by the next two on the list, supplemented by a sacrifice fly to center and a poor throw to the plato by Waters. It wasn't so much the hits made off McClellan, who had been a regular Verdun up to Monday's contest, that counted, as the bases on balls given and the poor support, at times, of the infield. Klein, the stocky Illinois hurler, also had a little something to do with the defeat of the Kentuckians. Nemo, as he was called in entreaty by his brethren, pitched ruthless ball. He permitted three hits, struck out eight men and gave but one free ticket. The home team had its one chance in tho second inning when both Parks poled safeties and "Rob Willie" Rodes walked. With one man retired, Propps, under conditions similar to those of the fabled Casey, advanced to the rubber. Like Casey, ho returned to the bench.
