THE Denton-Ross-To- M0HNEY GRABS FUMBLE Playing: strictly defensive football against an eleven that outweighed them more than 30 pounds to the man, the University of Kentucky Wildcats held the powerful Crimson Tide of Alabama to a 21 to 6 score las Saturday. For two periods the midget eleven checked the Tide and held the Wade-me- n scoreless, while, with the help of an Alabama fumble and a beautiful play by Covington, the Wildcats were holding a G to 0 advantage. The Kentucky score came soon after the starting whistle sounded, when Hicks fumbled and the Mayfield lad scooped it up and ran 33 yards to Alabama's line. On the third play, Mohney carried it over standing Co-Ed- s! young college women of the University of Kentucky to send a representative group to the store and have them go through our entire stock of fashionable apparel and select the garments which in their estimation .were most style-rigand in every way best suited to the particular needs of the young college women. . .

Tide. Kentucky played a hard, clean game, while the Tide fumbled. All of the 'Bama fumbles were costly, as the first resulted indirectly in Kentucky's six points, and the other two were recovered by the Wildcats. Portwood did something few backs have done this year. He went through the center of the Red line for a gain every time he carried the ovaL His longest gain was 12 yards. Gayle Mohney, playing his first game in the backfield, did some good running and was the defensive star of the Ken- tuckians. Drury stood out in the line. Kentucky's defensive ends, d and Walters, checked the Tide's sweeping end runs, Alabama gaining only 13 yards around the winemen.

The names of the high ten per cent in the freshman mental class were announced in last week's Kernel but the staff thought the student body must be interested in knowing how the tests were con Through an error ducted this year. the name of Evelyn Elwander, of Shelbyville, was omitted from this list and The Kernel wishes to make correction. The program of testing for the incoming freshmen this year was the most extensive that has yet been attempted in any Southern university. The immediate supervision of the testing program was in charge of the Senate Committee on the Study of Ability and Training of Students of which Doctor Miner is chairman. The committee was called upon by the University Committee on Freshman Week, of which Dean Melcher was chairman, to select the tests and su perintend the correction and evalua tion of the results. On the basis of the records, the freshmen classes in English and algebra were divided into sections. Each section included students of as nearly the same ability in that subject as possible. The committee had the full cooperation of the departments of English and mathematics. Because of the prelimianry Freshman week it was possible, for the first time to section these beginning classes on the opening day of recitations. Through the assistance of the leaders during Freshman Week, each of whom had charge of approximately thirty students, it was possible to test at the same time the entire six hundred who entered at the beginning of the freshman preliminaries. A caution is to be noted in considering the names of the students announced last week. It is to be remembered, as in all such contests, that those students who ranked just below those who names are published were so close that the separation of the top ten per cent or the top ten does not mean that there was an im portant difference between them and those just below. It is the first time that so extensive use has been made here of what are called "achievement tests" to supThese plement intelligence tests. tests in English and in mathematics are prepared to discover how much command the student has of funda mentals in these fields at the time of the- test. They are not intended to indicate whether he has a high ca pacity to acquire knowledge in these lines, but rather to find out what knowledge he has already. It will be noted that the knowledge and abil ity to use mathematical training is probably more specialized than ability in English. Only three of the ten names on the mathematical list are also in the top ten per cent in the general intelligence tests, while seven of those on the English list are also on the intelligence test list. It is the ambition of the committee to utilize more and more such special abilities as the students may have and the sectioning of thtso classes is a move in that direction. Some idea of the task involved in providing more accurate information about the preparation of the incoming students for their university classes may be gathered from the fact that each student's papers were corrected twice to eliminate errors. This in volved the correction of about 35,000 pages of test results. This work was accomplished through the assistance of the faculties in English, mathematics and psychology, supplemented - The Boudoir Apparel (Sketched on the Right) Negligee of Black Satin (sketched) with pipings of gold braid und hand painted medallions of gorgeous color . ..$14.95.

This is the fourth year in which the English classes have been divided into 3ections and the second year for the algebra classes. The national movement for giving better opportunity to all students entering college to progress more in conformity with iheir achievements in these subjects, has been sponsored by the National Research Council of the scientific associations. The University of Kentucky is one of the half dozen large "nstitutions of the country which has ichieved this rather ambitious program. Columbia, Iowa, Ohio State, Minnesota, and Northwestern are other outstanding institutions which have worked out similar programs. This year at Kentucky the Iowa tests for training in English and mathematics, the Iowa high school contest examination, the Otis intelligence test and the Boynton college classification test, devised by Doctor Boynton here, the Thorndike test of word knowledge and .the Woody-MCall test of fundamentals in mathe matics were among those used. Each of these tests is divided into a number of parts reaching different types of abilities on the part of the stu dents. The university plans contin ually to increase its services to its students by utilizing more and more the scientific methods now available for guiding them in their college work and in their choice of occupations'. It is also interested in studying more carefully the causes of failure and the aptitudes for more special training among the various lines which it of fers to its students. It is prepared especially to help those students who show maladjustments to the university situation through conflicts with their personal interests and abilities. Emotional readjustments are of particular importance with the entering students. Such cases are referred by the administrative officers to the psychology department for consideration. c- Columbus, Ohio. According to Josh II. Kaneko, graduate student in the department of English, Ohio State University, a graduate of St. Paul's University, of Tokio, Japan, the most striking difference between American and Japanese universities lies in the choice of courses left to students. "In America," he said, "the student comes to the university and finds it operating on the 'a la carte' plan. In our country it is 'table d'hote;' the professors plan a menu, and when it is set before the student he eats it."
