Available PAGE FIVE THE KENTUCKY KERNEL BEAUTY MUI JUST THAT, PARIS DOCTORS PROTEST Jules Verne Had Nothing On Anderson's Wizardry; Look at Mechanical Hall! (By MARGARET CUNDIFF) wonders never cease? It seems that the wonders of the fairyland called by the prosaic cog nomen of Mechanical hall will never stop producing new sights and miracles. What do you think now? If you will only take one of the (fool green paths that approach the engineering center, creep cautiously up to the side lie.xt to the new Memorial building, you may look In upon a strange and brilliant scene. There are all kinds of animal life from goldfish to chimpanzees moving under the transparent walls of the glass construction on the south wing of Mechanical hall. Flowers, ferns, plants of many descriptions almost hide a rustic retreat wherein Is built a large stone fireplace. It Is here that the goldfish swim In a bowl and the four operatic canaries trill. Perched on bars amongst the .plants you will sec birds of tropical plumage, red, green, blue and yelcolors low, myriads of Jewel-lik- e flashing In the sun under the glass. As for monkeys remember the days when the organ grinder or the circus afforded you the opportunity to feed peanuts to the monkeys? But here is a great and varied collection of our cousins, types ranging from the capuchin to a baby chimpanzee (whose name, by the way, lsBetty Chimp, and you must get acquainted with her), numbering 16 in all. But perhaps you are shaking your head in wonder at me. Then I must explain. Dean F. Paul Anderson, of the Engineering College, always the experimenter, has Installed a solar laboratory, the gift of Percy H Johnston, president of the Chemical National Bank of New York City and a native of Lebanon. The laboratory is the only one of its kind in the world and is an experiment of great interest not only to the University students, but to heating and ventilating engineers everywhere. It is composed of a number of glass compartments, each section being regulated to that of the native land of the plants and animals therein. Certain compartments permit the penetration of the ultraviolet rays produced by a sun. Perhaps you can appreciate thatl Thus has a benevolent admirer made' possible a wonderland on the campus. It will be a happy and worthwhile hour spent watching these beautiful birds, finches, parakeets, parrots, macaws, a roseate cockatoo and even a plain black American crow, which provides the only sombre note in the collection. Will the monkey tribe arc found the capuchin, a wool monkey, green monkeys, Rhesus and Bonnet mon keys. When supper Is served you can Imagine the variance In Ideas st to what Is the as unco. Manv of the birds cat rice with honey for desert, while the monkeys claim that nothing has the taste of peanuts and bananas! Among John R. Bullock Gets Law Award at Yale University Graduate Given Scholarship for Coming Year John Rice Bullock, Jr., who was graduated from the University In the class of 1928, and who has been a student In the Law College at Yale for the past year, has been awarded a scholarship for law work because of his excellent standing while at Yale.

The French parliament has been asked by a group of doctors to protect the beauty of French women jigalnst the methods employed by the beautlfl-catlo- n Industry to keep that schoolgirl complexion In the checks of matronly ladles. So serious have been the protests that the minister of health, acting upon the recommendation of the superior health council, has ordered a thorough Investigation of the beauty Institutes. Most of the mudbaths brought from America and Czechoslovakia have no more power to restore beauty than the mud dug up along the Seine banks, said Doctor Bor-da- s, spokesman for the doctors. "Real danger lies In the composition of face creams, paints and powders which are often based on zinc, mercury or arsenic sulphur." PEPY'S BIRTHPLACE ARGUED Big London and a little Huntingdonshire town arc both claiming to be the birthplace of Samuel Pepys. A tavern in London has dedicated a tablet stating that the famous diarist was born In a house on that site, but many In that city still side with the small town In Its claims. '28-'2- 9 LOVES Standing in Second Term John Cummlngs, an checker player of Philadelphia, has Ideas of his own about physical training for mental exertion. When he competed In a checker tournament in that city, he brought his trainer with him. After Cummlngs had disposed of his first opponent, the trainer went Into action. He gave the octogenarian n sip of water and made him recline In his chair while his second fanned him with a hat. After each match the performance was repeated and each successive opponent proved easier picking. At the end of the tournament Cummlngs was fully able to step forward to receive the winner's cup.
