XIII LEXINGTON, KY., NOVEMBER 17, 1922 No. 9 KITTENS OBTAIN REVENGE CRIMSONS OF ALABAMA MEETING OF AMERICAN FROM CENTRE FROSH BY MAKE FIRST APPEARANCE ENGINEER ASSOCIATION AGAINST CATS SATURDAY HELD Dope Favors Kentucky to Win by Touchdown in Week-En- d Scrap Great Aid Shown Toward Engineering Graduates in Obtaining Good Positions. GOOD TEAM WORK SHOWN TEAM IN GOOD CONDITION MEMBERSHIP Both Elevens Fight on Even Terms in First Half; Tide Turns in Second Hollowell Will Again Hold Down End Position, While Brewer May Be in Backfield. Big Meeting Planned for Thursday Night, Nov. 23, Refreshments Served The Crimson Tide of the University of Alabama will make its initial appearance on Stoll Field Saturday when the Crimson eleven will furnish opposition for the Cats. As this is the first showing of the southerners on the local field no past scores can be avenged and the scrap will hinge on the desires of each team to win the opening contest between the two institutions. To those who predict the results of gridiron battles by advance dope the Cats will enter the scrap as favorites to win by one touchdown. As and Alabama fought a 7 tie and the Cats handed the Tigers a 0 trouncing; but the initiated who do not entirely depend on the previous scores of the scrap seem more complicated. Alabama defeated Penn. after the Quakers had defeated the Purp'les 27-- 0 The Wildcats, how ever, are not paying any attention to dope and while not overconfident will enter the scrap with solid determina tion to win and with the fighting Kentucky spirit that is not to be de nied. Chuck Rice, who was expected not to play against the Crimson, will not be able to don the moleskins for the contest, and Hollowell who has filled his position admirably will again get the call for the end position. With the exception of Russell, who suffered an injured hand in the Vandy scrap, but will play Saturday, the (Continued on page 5) The Universit' of Kentucky Chapter of the American Association of Engineers held its initial meeting of the year on Wednesday, Nov. 8. The following officers were elected fdr the year 1922-2H. L. Royden '23, president; R. E. Clark, '24, M. Alperin '23, secretary. C. S. Tucker, '25, was appointed by the preident to be chairman of the refreshment committee. The other necessary committees will be named later. The attention of the new men in the College of Engineering is called particularly to the following explanation of what the A. A. E. really represents and stands for: The American Association of Engineers is an. engineering society. Its membership to date is well over the 20,000 mark. The reason for its rapid growth is because it stands for everything that will benefit engineers. At the present time the society has chapters in every state in the Union, Alaska and Honolulu. A. A. E. stands for higher ideals in engineering, creates opportunities for the individual, and makes engineers professional men. Membership in the A. A. E. insures an engineer a postion at any time. The employment bureau is placing on the average 300 men a month in positions. An outstanding feature of the society is the fact that it is inducing engineers to enter public life. It advocates engineers for public office and gains universal recognition of the valuable services an engineer can render in public affairs. It is planned by the officers to have a big meeting for engineers on Thursday night, Nov. 23. Refreshments will be served, a good program is assured and all engineering students are invited to attend and partake of the hospitality of the A. A. E. Further notice of this event will lie given later.

He is a player of great ability, hitting the line, skirting the ends and passing with equal effectiveness. He was one of performers in last the outstanding week's Yearling battle with Centre and was one of the main cogs in the Kitten machine.

This movement opens to the college girl a new and steadily growing proe fession in the or whole-tim- e career of a Girl Scout director or assistant. Leaders in charge of the local organizations are needed in growing numbers. These positions pay good salaries and compare favorably with teaching and other lines of social service in the advantages and interest of the work. In addition the course will be found of benefit itself to girls intending to enter constructive community work in any of its phases. Credit in the Physical Education Department will probably be given to the University girls completing the course. lead-ersi- part-tim- (Continued on page 5) mi iiiiW'ii..n .'

All-Oh- 'DAD'S DAY ASIDE AT U WILL BE SET OF K CAMPOS of Every Student Urged to be Present Nov ember 25. Fathers is In honor of the fathers of the University of Kentucky students, November ?i, the day of the University of Tennessee-KentuckFreshman clash on Soll Field, has been set aside as "Dad's Day." In all the large Universities it is customary to appoint one day in the year when the fathers of all students who can find it possible come to the college where their son or daughter is in school and there, cele brate the day. It is well to hold "Dad's Day" at the time$3f some athletic contest because in every man there is the love of prowess and strength and a certain amount of hero worship. The Freshman game promises to be the most interesting of the year. Volunteer Freshmen have defeated both the Baby Tigers and the infant Commodores. This game will undoubtedly settle the question of the championship of the South and we are looking to our Kittens to bring home the victory. This is the first time that the University has recognized the custom of observing "Dad's Day" and it is the purpose of the promoters of the movement to make it a success and have the "dad" of every student who can possibly come to be present for the day and for the game. Many of the fraternities will entertain and they are planning to make it a one hundred per cent "Dad's Day." y K W. D.
