Recently a questionnaire was sent out by "School and Society" to one hundred of the universities having the largest enrollment. Of these institutions approximately seventy-fiv- e either had freshman week already or were planning to inaugurate it this year. The questionnaire revealed further that every school which had tried it in a systematic manner was in favor of the plan. . Wildcats Will Cross Bats With Veteran Wolverines Get Your Skates! Physical E.d. Department to Conduct Novel Derby A roller skate derby, that's the latest feature to be arranged by M. E. Potter, director of athletics at the university. The idea was adopted from Big Ten institutions but being in Kentucky, it is naturally a "derby," regardless of what it is elsewhere. The events will be arranged so that both boys and girls may compete in the contests which will be held following the return of students from Easter vacation. According to Mr. Potter, the derby should prove to be a big success if students here evince the interest in the contest which students in other institutions have intra-mu-r- shown.

One tenth of the student's scholastic standing will be taken from his average for this offense. DEBATE TRY0UTS WILL BE HELD ,Frank Davidson Will Take Part of William Blayds A very important change has been made in the cast of the Stroller play as Frank Davidson has been assigned the role of William the nervous and care worn and secretary of Oliver Blayds the great poet. Mr. Davidson who is a freshman in the university has become outstanding in campus dramatics. He recently took part in the first Romany production of the year, "The Torchbear-ers- " where he was excellently cast in the role of Mr. Twiller. The part of y is similar to William that of Mr. Twiller. Those who saw the Romany play will be convinced that he will be able to handle this character perfectly.

In such a publication as this it is natural that we should have forgotten some things and it is to acknowledge this and to apologize for the oversights that this story is written. In the first place we discovered that we had failed to take the customary crack at the glassed-i- n porch of the Alpha Gams. That has in the past been good for one or more wisecracks and we cannot imagine being so forgetful as to overlook it. It seems also that the "Kat" failed to comment on the hilariously successful basketball season just past. That too was an oversight. The numerous fires on the campus lately escaped our notice for which That should also we are regretful.

A snarling, expert pack of Wolverines from the University of Michigan, who have lived and talked baseball ever since their advent in this world, will come to Lexington tomorrow, as they have come in the last 12 years, to play the 'Cats and hoping to beat them as they have beaten them eleven years of the twelve.

On the other 11 occasions that Wolverines have met Wildcats, the Wolverines triumphed, sometimes by victories that resembled two or three touchdown runaways. Michigan has always been noted for the prowess of her baseball teams and the big league calibre of some of her individual players. George Sisler, now a first baseman of the St. Louis Browns beat Kentucky in 1915 on Stoll field. Sisler, who captained the Wolverines, twirled Michigan to a 1 to 0 victory, won in the tenth inning when the mighty George socked the ball over the fence for a home A (CONTINUED ON PAGE TEN) PAPER SPONSORS MEET ORATORY poli-tfcs"- in Kampus Kat Makes First Appearance On Campus; Feature Writer Points Out Numerous Editorial Oversights Change Cast BIG TEN TEAM IS ON ANNUAL TRIP IN SOUTH Our Enthusiasm Thrives on Their Contempt" Says Writer In Speaking Of Masculine Depreciation qf Poet (By KATHLEEN PEFPLEY) Frankly we'll have to admit that We college women can at last relax Mr. Sandburg has rather a way with with an ecstatic sigh, and say a la the ladies also, that he seems to enKipling that the tumult and the shout- joy this talent.
