Women Students of University of Kentucky
Again Lead Men in Scholarship; Complete Scholastic Record Is Issued
by Dean of Men
Women students of the university
again proved themselves scholastical-l- y
superior to men students, accord.- ing to the second semester scholarship
report recently issued by the office
of the dean of men. Women students
made an average standing of 1.65
as compared to 1.37 for men. The
average was 1.46.

boys prevented that fraternity from
winning the Y.M.C.A. scholastic cup
for the third consecutive semester.
One of the most noticeable features
of the second semester scholarship
report was the unusually high starid- ing of the university's 44 letter men.
Their standing of 1.54 in being considerably higher than the
average seems to prove that at the
Uraversity of Kentucky at least, the
prevailing opinion that athletes are
poor students is false.
The complete report issued by the
dean's office giving all general averages as well as social, honorary, and

greetings and trust that you may enjoy a year of happiness and service
here during the term of
To one and all The Kernel extends its greetings and expresses its
hope that all may be one big family, that there may be a spirit of
and helpfulness between faculty and students and among themselves,
and that all connected with the institution may work together to preserve
the good name and bring additional honors to the University of Kentucky.

The preceding report was compiled in accordance with the method
adopted by the 1924 Conference of
Deans and 'Advisors of Men.
3.00 signifies a grade of A; 2.00
signifies B and 1.00 signifies C, the
lowest passing average.
Tradition demands, it seems, that in the first issue of any school
publication there should be an editorial of advice to the members of the
incoming freshman class. The Kernel is not and has no desire to be
considered iconoclastic in its principles, but it is unconventional enough to
eliminate this feature of the average school paper.
When a student matriculates at the University of Kentucky he does
so not as a baby, nor a child, nor yet as a high school boy, but as a man.
And as such is he treated. He is old enough to know what is right and
what is not, and he is intelligent enough to make up his own mind.
If a student wishes to loaf and dissipate in college he will find here
ample opportunities and plenty of comrades. But if he 'desires to work
zealously, to study and utilize to the best advantage his time in college,
he will find encouragement both from his instructors and from the majority
of the student body. His time is his, no one will hold a club over his
head to make him use it wisely. But if he fails in his scholastic work, if
he weakens morally, or if he fails to reach the goal of success in college,
it is his own fault for every opportunity for succeeding is at his disposal.
The university hopes that every freshman will make good. It is to the
members of the class of 1930 that the university will look for much of its
support in the next four years. It is on them that will depend much of the
university's reputation. What honors them, honors the university but what
disgraces them disgraces the university. The institution knows that its
confidence in them will not be betrayed by the members of the class of 1930.

ANOTHER GOAL REACHED
It has been said that an institution is no stronger than its alumni. It
is to its graduates that a university looks for much of its support; it is
on their achievements that much of its reputation is builded.
At the University of Kentucky a forward step has been taken by the
alumni association this year in employing for the first time in its history,
secretary and treasurer. The man selected for this position
a full-tim- e
is Raymond Kirk, a member of the class of 1924 and one particularly qualified
to hold this position. Mr. Kirk has had considerably journalistic experince
and the alumni page in The Kernel this year promises to be most interesting
to those who have attended this institution in past yars.
The Kernel congratulates the alumni association on this forward step
and wishes Mr. Kirk the maximum of success in his new position. It trusts
that alumni over the nation will realize the opportunities offered them

For years a group of men on the university faculty have dreamed
of a certain ideal they would some day realize. For years and years they
have toiled long and hard to reach the goal which seemed like a miraged
lake on a desert, ever to recede in the dictance of time. Yet they were
not disheartened and finally this last term their years' efforts were crowned
with brilliant success when the University of Kentucky was designated
as a "distinguished college" by the War Department at the close of school.
This honor received by the Military department seems to The Kernel
a signal one and one well merited by the department. The Kernel has
always admired the spirit of the department in its eagerness to cooperate
with the student body and the other departments of the university in all
undertakings that it thought would advance the interests of the institution
