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. the 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. co-e- ds p, co-e- ds J.

DR. W. H. ADAMS SPEAKS AT TUESDAY MEETING Georgetown College President Tells Mission of College Men IGNORANCE IS CURSE "The task before us, as people who are seeking education and enlightenment, is the emancipation of the world around us. Nature is under the bondage of corruption," said Dr. W. H. Adams, president of Georgetown College, when he addressed a student body cut in twain by the ravages of war and the move ment in chapel, Tuesday morning on the "Emancipation of Nature." Parts of r. Adams' speech follow. "You are seeking education, and education's mission is to make us fit to take our place in the world's events and to be factors in our home, the world. Do you not feel the call, 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. "If the ocean could speak today, don't you think that it would state its preference rather to be the bearer of ships that were engaged in the peaceful pursuits of trade and commerce than be reddened by the blood of men slain by the devTlish submarine and torpedo? "Your life is rich in proportion as you form useful contact. The man who is refusing contact with God is refusing contact with, the greatest person in the universe. Can anyone afford to do this? "By possessing a good character and a holy purpose you can strike the shackles off of every enslaved thing, animate or inanimate." d SLUGGING WILDCATS Defeat Handed on Their Own Field 3-- 1 Dan-villit- GRUBBS INVINCIBLE The Wildcat baseball manipulators put a crimp In Centre's aspirations when they defeated that team on their home-towdiamond Saturday afternoon by a score of 3 to 1. The Danvlllites touched up Grubbs for sevon safeties, but none of them were good for more than one base. Kentucky only landed on Rogers for a half dozen hits, but most of them were good for an extra sack or two. Waters, tho heavy hitter of the day, resuscitated a dormant batting aver age when he aggressively walloped the Danville slab artist for a double and a triple in four trips to the plate. The persevering short field man, together with Charlie Haydon, the Hal Chase of collegiate baseball, scored a brace of tallies, which sufficed for victory, in the opening frame. A three-bas- e slam by Haydon and afrom Curt Park's willing willow were other hitting features of the encounter. Centre stickers were at the mercy of Tommy Grubbs. The box score! Centre.
