For a number of years Kentucky has had the reputation of having the snappiest and best drilled band in the South, and since a competent drum major lends more to the appearance of a band than any other single factor, the management is especially anxious to secure someone who can uphold the tradition, of leading "the best band in the South." Last year Al Wieman, of Lexington, was drum major of the band which outshone the University of Chicago organization, and made Centre like "On! On! U. of K." for the first 'time in eight years, and it is to be hoped that a drum major may be found to lead, this year's band with like success. Kentucky's one and only pep' song, "On! On!
