Sampson. James Park, '15 T James Park, president of the Alumni Association of the University and Commonwealth's Attorney for Fayette county, recently was appointed Alumni member of the board of trustees of the University of Kentucky by Governor Flem D. Sampson. Mr. Park was appointed in place of Howard P. Ingles, whose term expired Mr. Park will January 1, 1928. serve as a member of the board for a term of six years. The appointment is the result of the election which was held last year hv momvrs of tVio Alumni AfiRO- - L. Kirk, '24 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Dr. George H. Wilson, '04 Dr. E. C. Elliott, '02 Win. H. Townsend, 12 Walter Hillenmeyer, '11 Wayland Rhodes, '15 W. C. Wilson, '13 TRUSTEE U. OF K. HOMECOMING and these three names were submitted rto the governor. From Ihem he selected Mr. Park for the appointment. There are three Alumni members of the board of trustees, and one of the three is selected every two years. Mr. Park is the youngest member of the board and his appointment comes as another tribute to .his popularity among the Alumni and friends over the state. He was elected Commonwealth's Attorney at the general election last November, after serving for two years as county attorney for Fayette county, to which office he was elected by a comfortable majority four years ago. His appointment was made public April 1, 1928. While the completed plans for the annual homecoming of week are not yet ready to be AJumni. during commencement announced, they have progressed far enough to call for a mention at this time. Special effort is being exerted to make the program for the homecoming Alumni this year interesting and entertaining for every one, who will attend. It is the plan er other than the annual business to have one big will be in the form of a social meeting. This 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 mem- 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. It is not too early to begin making arrangements to come Drop us a Make your plans now. home for homecoming. line and tell us to expect you. We will be glad to make any arrangements for you.
