A revelation of what the University Is doing and the progress it is making and its plans for the future was presented to the public In an editorial which appeared In The Lexington Herald Sunday, April 7. Tribute was paid to the University authorities, including "Miracle Man McVey," for their efforts in tte University development program. The Kentucky Kernel, on behalf of the student boiy and all others who are interested in the advancement of our University, wishes to thank The Herald for "those kind words." We appreciate them, but also we believe that they were merited. We believe that too much praise canitot be' gfven the workers in this great project which will result in a greater state and in a greater nation. The editorial is herewith reprinted. It should be read by every Kentucklan. It cannot be paraphrased and made better. Let it speak for itself: Honest confession is good for the soul. When a western Kentucky newspaper said recently that there seemed to be no purpose or plans to put the University of Kentucky forward. The Herald felt justified In trying to take the rest of the state to task for knowing so little of the great achievements taking place on the grounds of its own near neighbor. How little Indeed do Lexingtonians realize what is being accomplished! When fourteen of the fifteen members of the board of directors of the Lexington Board of Commerce and representatives of Lexington newspapers were taken on a pilgrimage Wednesday at the University their eyes were opened their mouths, too. A regular anvil chorus rings out from the builders; such construction as one might have expected in a Houston or a Miami is actually taking place. On Memorial Day, May 30, the beautiful chapel known as the Memorial building, in which encased in glass and in gold leaf are to be written the immortal names of Kentucky's 3,300 World War dead, will be dedicated. Slightly back of the College of Agriculture building, this stately temple Is now on what is generally considered the south end of the campus. A campus plan for the University, looking forward 25 years, already is on paper. In this plan the Memorial building is at the center of the campus. But while the plan is only on paper, the actual development of It is well under way. Across Limestone street the great steel and concrete foundation pillars which will support the new education building, half of the funds for which were donated by the General Education B.oard, rise from what has been the city dump. Over this unsightly acreage is to be raised the large building, with the college of education in the center and a model high school and a model elementary school as left and right wings. This one building will virtually equal the three original buildings of the University campus, now all standing and in use, after fifty years of service. Back toward Rose street the two new units of the dormitory group are rapidly nearing completion as though springing from the ground. Indeed, when completed these new dormitories will offer to the students who remain In the dormitories facilities that are the best that any students could hope for, with study rooms, baths, gathering rooms, a group system for rooms and spacious rooms and halls. To find a contrast, one has only to look at the old dormitory building still In use, with its crowded quarters. When Maury Crutcher, the superintendent of buildings and grounds and genius of much of the campus development, was a student not so many years ago the boys carried water from Mulligan and Maxwell springs and rilled a tank, still enshrined in the old aorm attic, a3 a part of the night ceremonies. McVey hall, facing Kastle hall on the eastern part of the campus, which was recently erected, is a joy to behold. Here is the cafeteria, indeed a valuable acquisition. Shades of the old mess hall, with its coatless masses scrambling for seats and crying for "Zip!" The refining influences of co-eand cleanliness have worked marvels. An entire floor is taken by this cafeteria, with a ceiling that swallows echoes, a kitchen that is a model, On the side of the College of Engineering a building nearly ready for use Is the $10,000 laboratory for the study of the eltects of heating, lighting and ventilation on plants and other life Its glass sides glisten in the sunlight but a short distance from the grove whose center and sponsor was a sinkhole, a natural bowl which at one time was the sewer system, at another indeed was used as an amphitheater for a commencement. What a comparison, with the Memorial building now almost ready for such use! Back of the football stadium there is now being completed a garden and arboretum In which are to be found all the plants, shrubs and many small trees which are native to Kentucky, and an old log roadway is being constructed over the streams and through the trees, an inspiration to students to love Kentucky's gift from nature. The plans also already have been completed for a new library building. Memorial hall, two new men's dormitories, the education building, new engineering laboratory and new dairy products building on the farm now under construction, an additional hall to the girls' dormitory group, McVey hall and outer construction completed and In use, and plans drawn looking forward 25 years and anticipating a student body ten thousand strong this is the evidence that the University Is looking forward. Let It not be thought from this that the State of Kentucky has been lavish In gifts. That Is far from the fact. The dormitories are built under an authorized amortization plan, the education building largely through the gift of the General Education Board, the engineering laboratory through a gift and McVey hall partly through popular subscription. Yet another source has been from savings from The University has saved all the current Income. that It could In running expenses and has put Its savings In buildings a secure bank. This has been accomplished through the cooperation of the faculty. Under Dr. McVcy's leadership there has developed among the University family not only professors but all who arc a part of Its development, their families, the administrative personnel, a deep and glorious faith and truly a passion to make the University of Kentucky a leader among the educational institutions of the South. With its growth and progress accomplished and prospective as a rich reward, yet not in most cases a fair recompense, they have kept at their posts, rejoicing In their hopes for the University and for the commonwealth. In most cases it has been through sacrifice on the part of members of the faculty that so much has been done and so much more can bo planned. Yet where docs vision develop where there is not sacrifice? Still a more striking development has been in the character of the student body. Much Is heard in these days of flaming youth. A newspaper Is probably placed In a better position to know how the young women and men of the University of Kentucky conduct themselves perhaps even than the deans of men and women. Let this testimony be presented, that In fifteen years the change has been remarkable. It is seldom that the students of the University cause disturbance. Yet there are 2,600 students living in the midst of Lexington. The old days of tying down the whistle and making street cars miserable, of uproar and disorder are gone. And so, startled indeed by a better appreciation the wonders that are being accomplished, The arid Herald takes this occasion again, better-informtherefore more highly enthused, to place before those Kentucklans whom it reaches this .summary of some of the more apparent things that are being done at the University of Kentucky, where scholastic ranking has been established, where a great development has taken place without the blast of trumpets, where it seems indeed that vision and faith have placed a prayer in every heart and a cooperative spirit of endeavor that is the crowning tribute to Miracle Man of McVey. o 0 COLLEGE COMMENT o o s' code from the University of CincinThe nati adjures "necking" but sees "no harm in kissing the boy of whom you are particularly fond."
