The characteristics of the grandmother, though amended and modified or enlarged, as the case may be, are recognizable as those of the grandmother. Speed, that trait so often attributed to the granddaughter, was not lacking In her ancestor. Numerous little old ladies gleefully tell of the times when they delighted In racing their horses when their elders weren't looking. It must be admitted that our grandmothers were encumbered with layer upon layer of clothing, which endeavored to curb their effervescent spirits. The era In which they lived called for minute care and attention to their attire, which resulted In frills and furbelows Inside and out. Their toilets, as their costumes were called, were carefully designated as morning, afternoon, walking, equestrian, opera, evening, boudoir, and various other types. Laces, flowers, newly designed taffetas, stiff and ruffled materials were used to make the frilly caps, gowns, underskirts (of which they often wore two, three, or four) and gloves. The home, with occasional Industrious ladles trying their hand at sewing, cooking, teaching or writing, provided industry and professions for grandmother. There is no end to the professions In which granddaughter may enter. If she desires, she may live with grimy hands in the work of an engineer, a geologist, a mechanic, She may employ her or other industrialists. natural perogative or curiosity in the duties of journalist, social service worker, in an Intelligence office, or as her grandmother, In the rooms of the nation's schools. The world's citizens must be fed, so granddaughter enters the business of raising, preparing, selling, or managing the dispensation of food. There Is a vast variety of positions open to granddaughter, from which she may choose her life work. Oddly, and yet not so unexpectedly, granddaughter continues to follow the example set by grandmother, and chooses to take on a husband, a home, and whatnot, with all the attached cares and duties. Investigations, those erstwhile Institutions of the Hoover administration, have resulted in figures showing that more than eighty per cent of the college women of America prefer a home to business. All of which upholds the fact that the granddaughter of 1930 is forsaking the life of a tomboy, which she has led for the past ten years, and assaying the charm and sophistication of her grandmother. She will continue to take advantage of opportunities which have been accorded her, and which her grandmother did not have.

FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 1858 Kentucky Branch Organized By Col. Dick Johnson, Engineering Graduate pi of the energy we use demands VALVES In 1890, under the leadership of Dick Johnson, of the College of Engineerings, a branch of the Y. M. O. A. was organized at the University of Kentucky, and, In the 40 years that have ensued, it has grown to be one of the most influential of the campus organizations, although It is the only one of such organizations to have a definite religious purpose, the Y. M. O. A. was founded to be of service to all the students, and to promote the highest ideals among them. The service of the organization Is not limited to the members only, who now number 348, but it attempts to aid any student in any problem, whether financial, social, or spiritual, which he may present. At the completion of the present Alumni hall In 1901, the "Y" established its headquarters on the second floor of the building and installed reading and recreation rooms. In 1911, due to the rapid growth of the orgnlzatlon, it was found necessary to employ Mr. E. L. secretary. Within Hall as full-tim- e a few years, Mr. Hall was transferred to the Chinese branch of the Y. M. C. A. and, Mr. James Parks, present commonwealth attorney of Fayette county, filled the position. In 1920, Bart N. Peak, present secretary of the Association, came to the university, and, with the exception of one year, has served continuously since then.

Take valves and fittings away, and we would be deprived not of 87 but of 91. For from water power as well as from coal, gas, and oil, energy is almost never extracted in the modern world but valves and fittings enter into the process. It is significant that the history of Crane Co. and the history of modern utilization of natural energy, cover almost exactly the same period.
