The site for the proposed new stadium for the University of Kentucky
has been definitely located at the corner of Rose and Winslow streets.
Three locations were favored for the
plant one of them being the one selected, another being on the University of Kentucky Experiment Station
Farm and the third .being near the
new basketball building.
The site desired by the Athletic

basketball building. Placing the stadium in this place would, they contend,
eliminate an unsightly portion of the
campus and place all the (buildings belonging to the Athletic Department of
the University within close proximity
of each other.
At the meeting of those in charge of
the building of the stadium it was
brought out that the desired site would
not 'be practicable at this time because
of tlu fact that the City of Lexington
would have to run a large storm sewer

be resumed at the regular time
in the week of the closing holidays.
