Not uncommon was the spectacle throughout player assisting n the game of on orange-la- d fallen opponent to his feet nnd patting him on the shoulder. Always, every move on the part of the opposing players exemplified in every way that unparalleled courtesy nnd chivalry which characterizes the traditional Southern Gentleman and which is the desired aim of the Southern Conference. Never has there been shown n finer, cleaner spirit of true sportmanshtp, and though throughout the cold, dreary days to come, the white caressing hand of winter's snows ns they fall and melt arid fall again in nn unceasing round, may, obliterate all traces of struggle, there will always remain in the hearts of those who witnessed, this manly spectacle, the memory of that splendid spirit of sportsmanship which exists between the two teams.

That the nation might have news of the world during the war, women first did their greatest work in this field, taking up where the men had dropped their endeavors, and learning bit by bit this fascinating profession. When the men returned to their work, n great part of the women remained to make a place for themselves In the newspaper world. They have succeeded in their effort, and today stand side, by side with the best known men in this sphere. Faced with the problem of making their efforts worth a great deal or abandoning the work altogether, they have accomplished much. In every phase of Journalistic work, women arc coming into prominence. As reporters, they have not only developed an ability to present the news as it should be presented, but they have been able many times to aid in bringing to light Important knowledge. As editors they employ sound judgment and much common sense in the managing of affairs. As mechancial operators, they are thorough, and capable. In various departments, which are comparatively new to the newspaper world, they have developed useful phases of journalistic ability. As a profession, journalism is well adapted to the ability of women the world over, and is fast being entered by them. Women will continue to rise as they have recently done, until they will stand at the very top. KENTUCKY KERNEL PLATFORM A CampHS Beautiful University Expansion Dissemination of University News to Kentucky Strict Observance of Laws and Better Scholarship ' THETA SIGMA PHI For the past week sixteen young ladies, mem- -' bers of the local chapter of Theta Sigma Phi, .honorary professional Journalistic fraternity for women, have been writing stories, reading copy, . head-linin- g, in order that this and proof-readiissue of the Kernel might come to you from their hands. In this work they have been assisted by ; several young ladles who are prominent In Journalism on the campus, and who were asked to help with this special edition. J Chi chapter of Theta Sigma Phi was installed at the University in 1920, and since that time the members, individually and collectively, have be come outstanding in Journalistic achievements. Miss Mary Gorey, an alumna of Chi chapter, who has been ah assistant society writer on the Cincinnati Enquirer since her graduation from the University, has recently been elected presi dent of the Ohio Press Association. Miss Leida Keyes, of the Class of "29, has organized and is the faculty advisor of a student publication in her school. Miss Helen King, who is now connected with the Publicity Bureau, is one of the most capable women journalists in this part of the country, and Theta Sigma Phi is proud to claim her as one of their own. Miss Martha who was graduated last year, is em , Minnlhan, ployed by the Lexington Herald, as Is Miss Jessie Marie Sun. Theta Sigma Phi is composed of a group of energetic, ambitious young women, who are striving toward the highest goals in the field pf journalism, and in this their tenth annual tempt at the publication of the Kentucky Kernel they have put forth their best efforts, and sincerely hope that they have not been made in vain. ! MORTAR BOARD Mortar Board is to be commended upon the efforts it Is making to interest the girls of the university in the different fields of work that are now open to women. A very attractive j bulletin board In the shape of the pin of that organization has been, placed in the Adminstra-tio- n building and each week there are different articles placed on the board. These are clipped from publications and. Include stories of women active in various fields, the achievements made by such women, and also articles of general interest to women. Mortar Board was founded at Syracuse, New York in 1918, andtwo years later the chapter on the University campus was installed. It is for senior women only and has high requireI ments for membership, one being that no one is eligible for membership unless she Is already a member of the honorary fraternity of the de partment In which she Is taking her major or minor work. In this way the members are the true leaders of the campus, as well as being scholastic leaders. Personal work is another field ol activity carried on by the local chapter, and many of BINDS the new girls on the campus are helped by this With all the radiant glory and gleaming work each year.

Early struggles and disappointments have proved beneficial, for the wandering players have profited by their mistakes until today they find themselves the outstanding collegiate dramatic club of Kentucky and we might well extend that territory. The Idea of a musical play Is not new to Strollers, for they attempted such nn undertaking more than ten years ago, but met with such forceful opposition from University nuthorltlcs that the Idea was abandoned. Not until the fall of this year was the plan of producing two plays, one of them to be nn original musical comedy written, played, nnd produced by n member of the organization, Frank Davidson, nnd other University students, admitted to be feasible.

Teams to enter college following the ing a downward trend. His annual report re- using this type of play secure fewer cently issued indicated the sloWlngf'down process to be absolutely alarming, in view of the fact that last year's Increase In college attendance is only 2 per cent. This slight increase applies to 216 colleges in the approved list of the Association of American Universities; however, it includes the stronger institutions in the country. It may also be noted that this retardation has no special geographical limits, since reports show that In 22 states, last year, there were fewer college and university students than In previous years. In those Institutions with more than 300 students in the Intervening groups, the propor tion with decreased enrollment Is smaller as one proceeds from the smaller to the larger Institutions. Perhaps we may attribute this to the fact that students are prone to prefer larger institutions to smaller ones for the reason that larger insti tutions are supposed to be more progressive, and on the whole are likely to offer broader fields or study, nnd often more highly specialized courses nre offered. However, regarding the decline in enrollment from the viewpoint of colleges in general, we must consider that restrictions on immigration are bringing much fewer prospective college students to this country: also that American growth of population Is much smaller than' It was five years ago. Hence, enrollment Is likely to fall still more in the next decade, unless values or attractions of college training become more widely emphatic than they are at present. Although it is not the consensus of opinion, some people entertain the idea that college training Is merejy a means of postponing work for four years, and if the student has the in tentlon of entering tl;e business world and not engaging In professional enterprise, he does not deem a college education essential. Though in some fields college degrees are required, It does not hold that all value it as necessarily conducive to better accomplishments. It seems evident that any general high rate of growth in the future must depend upon the feeling that college training is a valuable asset, and it is our opinion that not until then will In the telephone business, attendance in higher schools of learning take an upward trend. manufacturing engineer and I l SEEN WESIDELINES UNIVERSITY of KENTUCKY TRIBUTE i SUKY IIETTER LOOK INTO THIS PAUL WIIITEllIAN MATTER!
