GORDON SPEAKS AT CHAPEL EXERCISES Noted Writer and Speaker Delivers "Quiet Talk" to Students ADDRESS INSPIRING S. D. Gordon, of New York, well-know- n author and speaker, delivered one of d'Vcrrles of "quiet 'talks" in chapel Tuesday morning, his subject being, "Temptation." "Temptation," the speaker said, "runs along the natural groove of a man's life." Temptation has always existed and wlll continue to exist to eternity. In itself, there is no harm, but with man's aid It becomes an exaggerated evil. Temptation affects different men in different ways, Mr. Gordon said. Some lie down and are trodden under foot like a dog; some play with temptation and make a pretense of fighting it, while others really fight It. Such a man uses will power and if he must go down, he Is still undefeated. Mr. Gordon said that temptation was weak in itself; that it can do Its nothing without partnership. power depends upon how man takes it. If a man yields in the beginning, lie makes no show of fighting; if ho plays with temptation, he Is whipped, but if he fights he will win out with the help of God. Man Is no match for temptation by himself, but with divine aid, ho can subdue it. "Who is there to help?" is tho ques tion often asked. The answer is Jesus. Ho was a human being, a real man, and ho had to fight against tho same temptations that wo do. In tho fight ho never slipped and In the end In conclusion, the was victorious. speaker said that all men were agreed in this: "Jesus clearly overtopped and over-topthe whole race of man." s PREMEDICS MEET.

The ten girls who received the greatest number of votes In the election last Friday in chapel will be seen in the feature pages of the Kentuckian next May. There are many more who are popular enough to go Into anybody's book, but the student body decided for itself that it wanted this particular ten, and in they s will go. Nearly five hundred ballots were cast In the contest, and as each bal lot had ten names, the counting was a tedious process. Inspired by oratory and mindful of the admonition to "let conscience be your guide," the great body politic of the University of Ken tucky rose in its majesty and elected whom It would. The votes were counted by Frank Street, C. R. Smith and William Shin- nick, and that every one may be sure the count was conducted fairly, Frank and Bill voluntarily went before Miss Joyeux, who is a notary public, and made affidavit concerning the matter. The affidavit follows. It tells the whole story: "To Whom It May Concern: "We, the undersigned, Frank Street. editor of the 1917 Kentuckian, and William Shlnnlck, feature editor of the 1917 Kentuckian, hereby declare that we have counted the ballots cast in the Kentuckian's popularity contest December 8, and that the following having received the highest ten number of votes, are the winners of Nancy Innes, Dorothy the contest: Middleton, Mary Downing, Ann Mol-loFrances Josephine Thomas, Gelsel, Lula Swlnney, Mildred Taylor, Mary RIcketts and Juliet Lee Risque.
