Circulation Manager COUNCIL ACTION 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 28. 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. AN UNFORTUNATE EVENT m m. : f 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 chapters at prominent other universities 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 journalism fraternity. SHROPSHIRE APPOINTED 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. Kirk. 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. AUGUST 1 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 te 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 other universities. 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 Kentucky. THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS 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 SONGS OF U. K. groups sponsoring this model session are deserv"Songs of U.
