It is with extreme astonishment and surprise that such a thing should be deemed possible of any Kentucky college that the Kernel notes In the columns of newspapers of recent date, a wholesale indictment of Centre .College, our neighbor Institution, by West Virginia, making charges so disgraceful In their import as to leave forever the stigma of professionalism on the little Kentucky college, If It does not immediately refute them beyond the shadow of a doubt. The charges, made by one Major Earl Smith, a West Virginia University alumnus, and said to be .the result of investigations made by him, set forth that "Red" Roberts, of Somerset, Ky., who is well known in this section of the State, is none than one of tho former Nesser brothers, formerly members of one of the great professional teams of Ohio, and that his brother, also investired headed, "plays end or half" on the Centre team. The gator also claims that McMillan is a professional player known as Scruggs, and that several other professionals played on the Centre eleven. Major Smith says the team was brought together by "Moran, coach, who came from Texas, and Jim Duffee, Columbus, Ohio, sportsman and ref- r eree," and that the money necessary to hire these men was put up by "race horse and hotel people of Lexington, that big, sporting Kentucky town." If the main facts in Major Smith's charges are no more reliable than the details printed herewith, the whole thing would make an entertaining fairy story but nothing else. The writer knows that McMillan and Roberts played on the Somerset High School football team before entering Centre In 1917, at the time according to Major Smith, that they were playing professional ball in Ohio, and it is hardly possible they could be in two places at once, except in a fairy story in which Major Smith seem3 a past master. The Kernel, a Kentucky publication, wishes to express its sincere hope and confidence that Centre will at once dispel all such rumors that besmirch its fair name and bring disgrace upon one of the oldest and most honored of Kentucky colleges. The charges look at present to 'be merely a of "sour grapes" of fairly defeated opponents, whose champion takes this means to bring solace to their wounded vanity and lessen the sting of defeat by an adversary whom they thought was insignificant; but if these charges are proved untrue, and the Kernel has every reason to believe that they will be so proved, no censure would be too great for the one who brings such accusations against the good name of so venerable an institution as is Centre. Centre College should at once take steps to brand these charges as false, and bring down upon the heads of their authors the just rebuke that all false charges merit, if they be false. It is exceedingly unfortunate Jthat such controversies should arise "between educational institutions of high standing, and especially of such j'Serious nature as this purports to be. No matter how the matter ends, it should be a lesson and reminder to all who may have at any time in the future an inclination to air their views of any college through the columns of the press, to use such caution in their speech as to b.e more convincing than Centre's accusers seem to have been in the present instance. n j tho answer to this Coed.

A long freight train became disconnected, At the end of a perfect day.
