As the editorial page of The Kernel is being
closed for the press, comes news of the investi-
gation demands concerning the campus book
store and the granting of the power request
made by the Men's Student Council on March
We regret that there is no time for an editorial discussion of the action taken by the council, but we feel that it is well that this is the
case, for such comment should be undertaken
only after a thorough study of the situation.
Next week, if nothing intervenes, The Kernel
will present the latest developments and a fair
discussion of all factors involved.
The scheduled first annual gridiron banquet
has been called off, according to an announcement issued yesterday by Jess Laughlin, president of Sigma Delta Chi, honorary journalism
fraternity which sponsored the atempt this year
to give to the University and Kenucky an entertainment feature comparable to those given by
throughout the nation.
It is regretted that little Interest was shown in
the gridiron banquet and that the modicum of
Interest displayed was smothered when other organizations scheduled events In direct conflict
with the Sigma Delta Chi banquet date. The
gridiron banquet was announced far in advance
of the date so that other organizations planning
entertainments would have ample time to arrange dates not in conflict with those of the
With the March issue of the Kentucky Alumnus began a new regime in the office of the secretary of the alumni association of the University of Kentucky. Upon the acceptance of the
resignation of Raymond Kirk as alumni secretary and editor of the official association magazine, James Shropshire, of Lexington, a graduate of the University with the class of 1929, was
appointed to complete the unexpired term of Mr.
The Kernel regrets the passing of Mr. Kirk,
as he capably performed the duties Incumbent
upon his office in a scholarly and gentlemanly
manner, but it is felt that his successor will
carry on the work already begun with pleasing
results to the University and state.
Mr. Shropshire has had wide experience in
the affairs of publications at the University,
having served as business manager of the Kernel and letters and manager of student publications. He will retain the latter office. The
Kernel extends congratulations to the alumni
association for having secured an editor and
secretary who is capable of continuing the excellent work of the past.
Education from tho kindergarten to the highest academic degree, that of doctor of philosophy, will be available at the University when
the new education training building now under
construction Is completed, Dean W. S. Taylor,
of the College of Education, has announced.
The new building will be completed and ready
for use by August 1.
At that date the University will be one of the
few institutions in the entire country and the
only one within an area of several hundred miles
to offer such complete educational training, enabling a child to enter the University at the kindergarten age and continue Its education
through graded school, high school, college and
study to master's and doctor's degrees.
The new building Is to contain all of the most
modern equipment for the education of children
and youths of all ages and for the educational
training of students In the University College of
Education. The faculty will be enlarged to take
care of the elementary and graded classes being
added and students of the college will be given
practical training in the teaching of students of
all ages. Practice teaching will be under the
observance of experienced demonstration teachers and supervisors, at all times assuring the
children the best instruction and the student-teachpractical experience.
With the opening next fall of the complete
educational building, the College of Education
is expected to attract undergraduate students
from a wide area. Operation of the improved
educational training school is expected to result
In the raising of standards of neighboring states.
The erection and opening of the new building
can not but add to the University's already rap-Idl- y
growing prestige throughout the nation, according to educators familiar with conditions,
and other educational facilities provided by
Opening of the new building will bring Increased educational opportunities to the entire
state, but more especially to Lexington. Through
the operation of the elementary, graded and
high schools under the supervision of experts,
Lexington children will be enabled to acquire
the finest possible education at minimum cost,
just as Lexington college students enjoy financial advantage because of the location of the
University in this city.
It has been noted before that the University
is growing rapidly under the capable direction
of the regime now In control, but The Kernel believes that no more lasting and beneficial
achievement will have been consumated by the
school than when August 1 presents a master
school of education to the Commonwealth of

COLLEGIATE DIVERSIONS Colleagues Honor
During the recent struggles of mother nature
Dr. Jos. W. Pryor
to clothes herself in all the lovliness of springtime, one cannot but be Impressed with the
character and variety of the diversions of the
collegians. Even tho most disinterested observer Is readily assured that the collegians have an
endless variety of ways to prevent boredom.
People are quite generally prone to consider
collegians as an artificial class entirely distinct
from all others. Perhaps some of the basic elements of this distinction was not without reason. Who, for instance, but a collegian would;
want to ride an "honcry" mule on main street
of a downtown street at tho unholy hour of
twelve but a collegian? Bicycles were common
enough in our day but wc never had a hankering to ride one around in the lobby of a hotel
full of people. Wc had trouble enough in avoiding collisions out in the wide open spaces.
A further consideration of collegiate diversions
would tend to show that the chief difference between the past-timof the collegians and others is that students in college usually tire of
their common means of spending time as soon
as they discover the reasons back of a particular
way of spending time. As long as the yo-y- o was
a curiosity, and unique to say the least, it was;
a pleasant diversion. When we found out what
"yo" the thing had lost its inmade the yo-y- o
terest. The same observation well applies to
many other endeavors.
As a class collegians choose far more healthful and interesting diversions than an equal
number of people in other fields. They ride,
swim, play tennis and seek their exercise in long
strolls about the city, although not always by
themselves. They play bridge and rummy and
other card games with more than ordinary proficiency. They seek diversion in enlightening
conversation, albeit It may be sometimes misunderstood by being classed as "bull sessions."
And then, In the spring time, there Is always the
possibility of a bit of harmless courting to break
the montony before and after dances.
A MATTER OF CULTURE
Soon the University of Kentucky concert band
will give the first of a series of concerts, carefully planned and executed so as to appeal to
lovers of good music at the University.
The concerts will be presented by what many
consider to be the best concert band in the history of the school. They will be made up of
many types of music, the result being that all
who attend will hear compositions attuned to
their particular musical taste.
Among other things now being presented to
the students at the University, these concerts
should take their place as cultural subsidiaries
to the ordinary routine of class work. It long
has been a matter of regret to officials of the
University that there are so few students here
who apparently care little or nothing for cultural activities, and it has been
that no man or woman is thoroughly educated
who lacks Interest in the things that lend culture. Perhaps students do not realize this, but
there is no time like the present for an awakening.
Although there may be better bands than the
University concert organization, the fact remains
that there is no better in Lexington. It behooves
students, then, to attend the concerts soon to be
given, for the attendants will hear programs that
which there are none better in Lexington.
With the announcement that the Political Sciwith the Internaence Forum in
tional Relations Club will present a model session of the League of Nations, the student body
and faculty of the University again are reminded forcibly of the highly constructive work of
these two organizations and of the Political Science Department. Probably less is known of the
intricate workings of the League of Nations than
of any other body of International scope. Probably no other body has played such an important part in the affairs of the nations of Europe
or has figured so prominently in the political
life of our own country. Time It Is, then, that
more should be known of this assemblage. The
