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. "A hint to the wise is
