FRANK BATTAILE death of Frank Battaille on Friday, March 20, has caused profound regret among his associates and friends in Lexington and on the campus of the University of Kentucky. Many have been the expressions of his' worth from the organizations with which he was closely affiliated as organizer and leader. The Alumni association of the university may well append its resolutions for very few graduates have so loyaly stood with the institution; have so effectively worked for its advancement or so unselfishly devoted time and energy and the experiences gained at great personal expense us did he. After graduation in 1008, fortunately indeed for alumni and students, Frank Battaille allied himself with business affairs that kept him in close touch with the university. He know its difficulties and handicaps and never has the instance bdeu recorded in which he refused or even hesitated in giving aid. In the Greater Kentucky campaign, in the stadium drive and to orgunize the in every attempt alumni and to bring them to more effective usefulness ho did many times more thun the average worker. Therefore tho executive committee of the Alumni Association desires to to pay tribute of lifelong devotion Frank Battaille. und to express through the columns of the ulumni publication a profound sympathy to Ids family.
