The Kentucky Kernel, December 10, 1926

Part of The Kentucky Kernel

THE KENTUCKY KERNEL Attend Football Banquet Saturday UNIVERSITY VOLUME XVII S. C. LEXINGTON, OFFICIALS WILL HOLD NEXT MEETING AT U. K. Invitation of University Is Ac- cepted by Southern Conference; Representatives Will Gather Here in 1927 REPRESENT 22 COLLEGES Prospects for Securing Southern Tournament in Future Years Are Brightened The Southern Conference, an association of 22 of the largest and most outstanding colleges and universites of the South which have been brought together for the purpose of pujting ainieucs in uie ouuui on u nign juunc and to, promote cooperation among its members in establishing a high stand ard of conduct of athletics, has ac cepted the invitation extended by the University of Kentucky to hold its 1927 annual meeting in Lexington. The invitation was given by Dr, W. D. Funkhouser, secretary of the Southern Conference, and S. A. "Dad dy" Boles, athletic director at the university. Invitations were also ex tended by Montgomery, Memphis and Nashville. The annual convention of the con ference, such as will be held in Lexington next year is a meeting of officials of the conference to discuss plans for the athletic seasons of the .following year and to adjust any difficulties that may have arisen during the past season. The conference will abolish rules or make new ones, as it sees fit, for the good of the 22 schools in the association. The ver dict of the officials in the conference is final in all things upon which they .may have been called to pass judgment. Acceptance of the invitation is considered to be conclusive indication that the University of Kentucky is constantly growing in athletic prominence in the South and it is said by some "that having the conference meet here is the first step toward procuring for the university the annual basketball tournament which is held each year to determine the championship of the South; some of the more optimistic university supporters even going so far as to hope that the university may possibly get this tournament in 1928. i: .

The Romany is very much encoura. aged by the interest shown in this )t competition which indicates considerable change in the attitude of the students.

It is estimated that 2,000 persons witnessed the de bate which is regarded as the great est event of its kind ever held in the state. Representatives of the University of Kentucky were W. H.

On the Oxford college team were Patrick Monkhouse, Gyles Isham and Michael Franklin. The debate was of the split team type used in England. The subject was "Resolved: That Society Has More to Fear Than to Hope From Science." The affirmative was up held by James Burnett for the university and Patrick Monkhousa and Gyles Isham for Oxford College, while the negative side was presented by George Robbins and W. H.

Kernel Staff Dazed as Foreman of Press Room Answers Cupids Beckon And Embarks on Matrimonial Voyage OF Read President's Message to Students "The bonfire celebration on the nineteenth of November introduced some new features that are hardly in line with the best traditions of the university. A number of barber poles, signs, a cart, and a wagon were destroyed or injured by students. The property loss amounted to more than a hundred dollars. It is hardly right that the owners should bear the loss. The students are responsible and the classes therefore must be assessed to pay the amount of the damages. This will be done by dividing the amount equally among the four classes and the treasurer of funds will be called upon to pay the amount. The committee of the Suky Circle examined the claims and fixed the amounts. "The students of the university must recognize the rights and property of citizens. I sincerely trust that this sort of thing will not happen again." (Signed) Frank L. McVey.

Not only from Lexington but from various parts of the country wherever Miss Smith has accompanied the band on its trips with the football team her appearance has been the cause of much favorable criticism. The Knoxville, Birmingham, Danville, and Charleston papers were extremely enthusiastic in their comments on Miss Smith as a Kentucky girl and as an official representative of the university in her position as sponsor. The rule has been with the univer sity band never to elect a sponsor for. a second term of service, and this rule has been broken but once before in the history of the organization, when Miss Martha Pate, was elected (CONTINUED ON PAGE EIGHT) for the second time. With the consent of Colonel Hobbs, however, in order to show its regard for Miss Smith and its appreciation for her splendid service this was again done by the band.

A varied program consisting of popular and music has been arranged. One of the numbers on the program is "Scenes From Rose Marie" from one of the most popular and picturesque light operas of the day. Other numbers are the "Hunting Scene" by Bucalossi and the "Anvil Polka," a bell solo by Parlow. The latter will be given by Henry Steilberg, a sophomore membr of th band. "Best Lovd Southern Melodies," a medley by Al Hayes, appears on the program. "On! On! U. of K.," pep song of the university composed by Prof. Carl Lampert, will be played and sung.

There were attending the convention representatives from 166 colleges and universities, 18 of these being Southern institutions. Mr. Bennett represented the University of Kentucky and was elected delegate by the Men's Student council. The purpose of the convention as stated in the program was the appraisal of college education as conducted today, the integration of the various protests against standardiza-atio- n of college life, the consideration of steps taken by different institutions in meeting these problems, and the adoption of permanent forms of organization for the federation. Dr. Alexander Meiklejohn and President Little, of the University of Michigan, were the principal speakers on the program and then discussed the outstanding problems of the American college of today. Athletics, fraternities, honor systems and student government were other topics of discussion. 13 TO HAVE Despite rumors to the contrary, will give its annual dance December 22, from 9 to 1 o'clock in the men's gymnasium of the university.

There you will find all modern conveniences incidental to correspondence and in addition you can meet and greet all the male population of the University of Kentucky. In fact, the hotels have achieved the popularity of the coffee houses of Ben Jonson's day. All collegiate social activity centers about the writing tables. Here Benny indites a labored scrawl to Lucy back home. He has been having an awful time but he still loves her. He wonders why she doesn't send him some of that fudge she used to make. He has been thinking about her continually since he arrived and has been faithful to all his promises to her (except when he got drunk last Saturday and when he has had dates with other girls). Benny neglects to mention to her the exceptions. It is here that Harry tells Dad all about having been kicked out because the prof misunderstood an innocent little wisecrack he made. He has been ill for about a week and has doctor's bills to pay so would like to have his January allowance at once.
