As the ball rolled into an untenanted section of Stoll Field, Kinne ever on the alert, had it almost Immediately, and a few seconds later had firmly placed the ball between the goal posts, while three thousand throats were tearing themselves to pieces with wild yells. Schrader kicked an easy goal for the extra point and all scoring in game was ended.

Alumni and the student bodies of the three Kentucky Institutions will welcome the resumption of athletic relations with Central and Georgetown after a lapse of several years. The outlook for a strong quintet this season is very bright, in spite of the fact that Captain Ralph Morgan, forward, "Squlrrely" Tuttle and Scott, guards, will be missing. The veterans left are Captain Karl Zerfoss, Schrader, Gumbert and Server. Derrel Hart, 'Varsity forward In 1911 and '12, will be out for a position again.
