The edition of The Kentucky Kernel last week,
which was entirely in charge of the
of the University, was one of the best issues that has appeared:
this year. If it were not for the fact that comparisons
are distasteful the writer would be inclined to say that
in general make-uliterary finish and subject matter
outdid the regular members of the staff.
But beyond the particular fact of this edition of the
college paper lies a great generality. Women of today,
and especially college women, are snowing that they are
capable of making all the sacrifices that could be demanded of men in times of great crises. The plan to
mobilize the women of the country during the war has
.met with success; everywhere we find them willing and
.anxious to put their patriotism into concrete form. On
the campus of the University we see them drilling and
preparing themselves for the work of Red Cross
nurses; a number of them have gone home already to
aid in food production. Quite a number here in Lexington are raising gardens "on the side."
To enumerate all the things the women of the University of Kentucky have done or intend to do for their
native land would be impossible and superfluous. There
is too much, in the first place, and it is too well known.
We can only say that they have been faithful to every
trust and are deserving of the confidence and thanks of
every University man.
To its congratulations on the excellence of the Coed Edition, the Kernel wishes to add its appreciation of
everything else the girls on the campus have done and
its admiration of all they are.

education's mission is to make us fit

and to be factors in our home, the

eloquent call of the world to you, on
its knees as it were, to come out and
liberate it from its inefficiency? Farmers are calling men from agricultural
colleges to come to their farms and
deliver their land from the bondage
under which it labors. Only think of
the delusions under which a child,
who has been taught by a poor Ignorant, unfit teacher in some of the
rural schools of our native state Is
held; of the gripping shackles which
oppress it. School boards are calling
for bright, educated men and women
to better these conditions.
