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 Council and the alumni committee to the exclusion of the other two was the Winslow street location near the 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 (Continued on page ten) K FACULTY MEMBERS The University of Kentucky is to be the host to the Middle West and Southern Classical Association April An interesting program has been provided which will be held at the Phoenix Hotel, the University chapel and, on Saturday, at Transylvania College. ,atn writing to call your attention to the program and K t'opc that you can attend the meetings.

The final site for the stadium has been selected and work will begin before long, so let's get all the money in as it falls due so nothing will hold up the work.
