THE KENTUCKY KERNEL UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY LEXINGTON, KY APRIL 10, 1919 VOL IX SUBSCRIPTION CONTEST FOR ANNUAL STARTED Foremost American Poet The Business Manager Announces Rules For Canvassers For "Biggest and Best" Yearbook PROFESSOR VACHEL LINDSAY TO ENSIGN PULLIAM DIES SPEAK HERE THURS. SLIGHTED The subscription contest staged by the Kentuckian staff for which cash prizes and copies of the annual will be awarded the winners is progressing well. Several prominent students of the University have entered as contestants and the Kentuckian editors thru the kindness of the Kernel, take this opportunity to give the rules governing the contest and to state that it Is open to all students of the University. The student who gets the largest number of subscriptions for the annual will receive fifteen dollars in cash, the ono who obtains the next largest number will receive ten dollars in cash. The third prize is a copy of the 1918 Kentuckian. The business staff of the annual announces that 350 or more copies must be sold during the contest. However there are usually 400 to 500 copies sold each year and it is believed that more than 600 copies will be sold this year, because the 1919 Kentuckian surpasses in general makeup and quality any annual produced by the Senior class of the University. The 1919 Kentuckian will be bound in grained leather with a cover. The features of the Year Book in the hands of Eliza M. Piggott and' an efficient staff promises to be uniquely interesting. The prizes given this year are large enough to assure interest and competition in the contest. A member of the staff discussing the prospects of the Annual with a member of the faculty was told that during ten years' connection with the University the professor had never been asked to buy an Annual. He has bought one every year because he is as interested in the Annual as any student on the campus, but no campaigners or contestants have ever asked him to subscribe. His case may be representative of the entire faculty. With 107 members of the faculty and a student enrollment of 750, a large number of subscriptions may be secured.

Touring IN COUNTRY'S PHOTOGRAPH OF GAY, ERAZIER AND YOUNG KINNEY GRAVE IS SENT HOME Mrs. Nola E. Miller recently received a letter from Captain Powell of the ninety-nintAero Squadron, verifying the announcement of tho death of her son, Lt. Howard Kinne, and containing a map showing the location of his grave near Romange. Altho Mrs. Kinne had been notified of her son's death, she had still hoped that the report was a mistake until she received the letter. Lt. Kinne was a former student of the University and especially prominent in football. He will be remembered by all who saw him for the touchdown he made in the Purdue game nearly four years ago. He was a member of A. T. O. fraternity. Former University Boy Killed in Crash of Plane at Hampton Roads Air Field, Ensign Harold A. Pulliam, former student of the University, died Friday April 4, as a result of injuries received in a seaplane accident Thursday, during a flight near Fort Monroe. An operation had been performed in hope of his recovery, but efforts to save his life were of no avail. Ensign Pulliam entered aviation service at the beginning of the war and was considered one of the most expert flyers in the service.

O. or Show DESIGN IS WANTED With Gus Gay, Emery Frazler and Lucy Young in the leading roles, rehearsals of "Under Cover," have been gaining snap since the announcement of the tentative cast Friday afternoon. Gus Gay, who has the part of Stephen Denby, was the leading man of last year's play, "Mice and Men," and will also be remembered in the part of Jefferson Rider in "The Lion and the Mouse." He was a member of the Soldier Players, of Camp Taylor during the summer season. Emery Frazier, by many considered the Strollers' most promising dramatic find, is cast as Daniel Taylor, a deputy in the Customs. Frazier was the leading man in "Father and the Boys," and "The Lion and the Mouse." Tho Lucy Young is a new comer in Stroller productions, she is handling the difficult role of Ethel Cartwrlght very creditably. A cover design for the program is wanted, a prize of two orchestra seats being offered for the best design presented. Since the play will be presented about May 1, all posters submitted should be in the hands of Stage Manager Creech within the next two weeks. Mr. Carroll M. Sax, who is to coach the cast for the last ten days will arrive in Lexington, April 20. free-han- d - The cast as selected by Stage Manager Creech follows: Ethel Cartwrlght Lucy Young.
