Cadets Tomorrow in Conference Tilt; o t n GRADUATE'S BAND - ribs-.an- Port-woo- d, r, The University of Kentucky band has scored again! Professor Sulzer and his Blue and White musicians created no less than a sensation when they journeyed down to 'Bama last Saturday. The band arrived in Birmingham at noon and paraded to d field soon afterwar. The game started at 1 o'clock, ahead of schedule time, but the band members soon made up for their delay after they arrived. Taking their seats in the stadium, they played for the some 7,000 football fanaall during the first half. Then falling into formation with their sponsor. Miss .. . . ot l onarsiey amitn. who carried a' large bouquet of flowers on her arm, they marched to the center of the field. Splitting there, the band whipped into columns until it formed a large "A." The spectators knew the plan before it was executed, and filled the air with cheers and general acclaim. James Saxon Childers in the Birmingham News of November 6. says, "Somewhere in the world there may be a bett r band than Kentucky's. Somewhere! Mavbe! But those who saw the musical Wildcats disport themselves at Richwood on Saturday afternoon will never believe it." Mr. Childers was also loud in nis praise of our sponsor and wrote, "Frequently at local football cam os glorious bits of feminity have delighted the crowds. Yet only Kentucky's band could have conceived the most worthy idea of treating the spectators to such a memorable glimpse of unquestionable proof of one of Kentucky's three boasts. And she stepped out with that band in such a manner to cause the old men to forcret the chimnev corner and the vouths to for get that spring had come." Alabama says that about our band and sponsor, and the only difference between them and us, is that we're even more enthusiastic in our praise.

When the cannon ceased firing, there was no celebration at first. It was too solemn an occasion for merriment and exultation.

The companies that have not had formal announcement of this are expected to be in the parade as well as all the other companies. The regiment will form in front of the Administration building at 9:30 Tenners IS AT 2 O'CLOCK This afternoon at 2 o'clock on Stoll field, the Kittens will be host to the University of West Virginia freshmen, a team that is conceded to be the best first year eleven ever at that institution, and one that has made an enviable record so far this season. According to Coach Major, a better showing in the blocking department of the game is expected from the Green and White over that shown against the Vanderbilt yearlings last week. 1 The West Virginia frosh are fast, and able in their duties as a freshman football team, with a record that is unblemished by defeat so far, having conquered the strong first year aggregations of the Pittsburgh and Maryland institutions. As far as injuries are concerned the Kittens are not bothered, excepting, perhaps few hurt feelings which resulted from the Vanderbilt game. Allen, who plays at center, is nursing an injury that is hardly worth mentioning and other than that all is well. In all probability the lineup will be different from that which played against Vanderbilt. Spicer, left tackle, Bronston, left end, and Farquer, right guard, are certain of a place in the line, while Knight, Richards and are expected to start in the backfield positions. This , combination should put up a worthy fight against any foe. dependable ELLENOR COOK TO SING RUSSIAN AIRS Nationally Known Interpreter of Russian Folk. Songs and Dances on Convocation Program SPONSER In accordance with the observance of Russian month at the university, lovers of the folk songs of foreign lands have an opportunity to haar these delightful airs, when on November 18, Miss Ellenor Cook, nationally known interpreter of Russian songs md dances, with her accompanist, Miss Eugenia Folliard, will delivT a program sponsored by the club of the university. This program, which will be a general university convocation, will take place at 11 o'clock. Miss Cook will present a like program at 4 o'clock the same day, the place to be determined later. Few artists in recent years have won such universal success as Miss Cook with her folk song recitals in costume. She is also a skilled pianist and dancer, and posseses a voice that adds much to her fame. She has specialized in the music of all eastern Europe, and with Miss Folliard, they are said to portray wonderfully the songs, dances, dress, and customs of these countries. Miss Cook is a graduate of Miss Porter's School in Farmington, Conn., and is a member of the Junior League. During the summer of 1926 she visited the small villages in Hungary, and Jugoslavia in quest of color, costumes, and new folk airs. All of the songs, most of them unknown in America are sung in the native languages; however, Miss Cook interprets each one beforehand and the reason for their being written. Miss Cook Tias virtually covered America in her tour and has appeared from New England through the Middle West, and from Montana to Florida. She has been recommended very enthusiastically by every audience which has heard her program. 1 Pol-lan- d, Czecho-Slovaki- a, a, 1 one-ho- Dispensary Receives Lamp From Trustee NINE YEARS AGO TODAY heart-breaki- Visiting Team Has Clean Record With Wins Over Pittsburgh and Maryland First KICK-OF- F Members of the Block and Bridle Club and the students and faculty of the College of Agriculture have planned, in the Little International lin.

Mohney can hardly breathe having suffered three cracked to his Jenkins is suffering a ankle, which by the way, kept him out of the Alabama game.
