Commonwealth's Attorney for Fayette county, recently was appointed

function, probably a luncheon or dinner. The Alumni luncheon
held last year met with such success that something similar
will be tried again this year. This year we are looking forward
to a larger attendance than in past years.
The officers of the class of 1908 are planning a reunion of
that class and from all indications a majority of the
bers of '08 will be back on the campus. This will be their
twentieth anniversary reunion and much interest is being displayed by the members.
In the years gone by, sad to relate, there has been comparatively little interest shown by Alumni in the homecoming
in the spring. In other universities and colleges this annual
homecoming is one of the biggest events in the Alumni year
and is attended by hundreds of graduates and former students.
Kentuckians should be more anxious to return than most other
Alumni. Kentucky in the spring is a place of beauty and
there is not a Kentuckian who does not feel a certain feeling
of homesickness during this time of the year. What could be
better than a visit to your native State and a visit to your
Alma Mater at this time of the year, when the campus is
most beautiful? You can relive your college days and the
weight of the years away from your Alma Mater will be lifted
from your shoulders.
