REPORT IN JANUARY ""on Mitchell, Baker & Smith ,fr SS..1" The Collegiate Department ARRIVING , This section of the old Lexington and Ohio railroad, laid at Lexington in 1831, was unearthed in July, 1915, by workmen who, were reconstructing the freight yards of what Is now the Louisville and Nashville railroad. It has been restored and was dedicated with fitting ceremonies on the campus of thc University of Kentucky, May 30, 1916, "to the men of forethought and courage who were pioneers in railroad development In America." The section is mounted on a cement block, in front of the Engineering Kernel 'Short It Takes A Man Short Story ' ' By Malcolm Kent "Young man, get the h 1 out of my house, and stay out!" With force and arms, vi et amis, George reflected bitterly as he hastily did the bidding of Mary Jane's father and climbed into his somewhat battered car. People knew that it was a car because you got In it and rode away. Otherwise it resembled nothing so much as the announcement of a screaming three ring circus. George had come home from college the day before and as soon as convenient, called on Mary Jane informally as was his custom since The reception time immemorial. Ieft much to be desired. There was something strange about all of this, he puzzled as the car turned a corner two ways at once forward and broadside. Narrowly missing two children, a truck and failing altogether to avoid the tall of a galloping dog, George tore down the street. As yet the fog had not lifted. He had come home from alma mater in a manner contrary to all established customs. The dean had not said a word to him, nor had a lack of general interest aroused parental disgust. His status was as clean as a new football uniform. It was a chagrined young man who finally pulled up in front of his father's domicile. The motor asthmatlcally wheezed a second and died. George started to find the way out of the car, and after some minutes succeeded. Then he went in the house. His mother greeted him with a cheerless nod. George, Sr., glared about being and said something gone all afternoon. But, as all of this was old stuff to the 'latest addition to the club, he went slowly to his room and fell into the throes of meditation. "Qui faclt per allum faclt per forgotten text. True enough, that forgoten text. True enough, that he who acts through another acts through himself. Could Mary Jane have been doing that? No, she would not have been so crude about it. She would have said she had a date, or some other equally forcible words of dismissal. Lighting a cigarette of the black Spanish variety, he threw himself on the bed and gazed out the window. Nice view, he thought. He always did admire the plain brick wall facing his window at a distance of not more than twenty nor less than twenty feet away. In fact, as he knew from actual measurement, it was exactly twenty feet distant. too, with its Very invigorating, broad expanse of red. Just like a room mate who always studied at the same desk and who had been blessed at birth with red hair and face. There was such a striking similarity between the two that George felt a faint twinge of alma mater sickness. "George, come to dinner, right this minute!" his mother called. "All right," he shouted, so that she would be sure and hear him and thus be saved the trouble of calling again. Then he turned over and went to sleep. The next thing he knew was that someone was shaking him. "Get up, before I make an example of you," his father growled. George got up. After snatching a few bites from the refrigerator, he got in the car and cautiously drove to Mary Jane's home, where ho discreetly wheezed the horn. Presently he was rewarded to see her coming to ulm. She climbed In beside him and they drifted slowly into the country. They parked, and George decid SMART NEW Modes for Fall Great Array of Styles $E.85 Harvard Library Runs Into Lindbergh Trophies by Mitchell, Baker & Smith I LSSSlrlDUCE The Louis of Germany Student Clothes That Pass the Entrance Test EVERYONE knows that a correct appearance really an entrance requirement these submit a wardrobe of Baker Smith clothes to enter with saunter to class in a tailored tweed or heavy silk to tea and bridge autumn crepes or velvet it's easy to make a mark even the most modest H.
