No matter how cold and raw the day, his wlieel chair can bo seen beside the substitute's bench; no matter how rainy and severe the night, Robert Spicer occupies the place of vantage in the basketball building and ho is rooting with the crowd, "Yea, Team! Yea, Team!" It is such a character as Robert Spicer's which spreads sunshine. In coming in contact with him we hnve no desire to shirk our duty; he imparts strength nnd cheer to us and makes us believe "God's in His Heaven and nil's right with His world." It can truly be said of him: "His is a good influence nmong us; ho has n fresh laugh; it does you good to see him; nnd whntevcr his worries he nlwnys bears a bold and cheerful countenance and takes fortune's worst ns if it were the showers of spring."

Pigman Grote CLEAN SPORTSMANSHIP The action taken by the State Racing Commission of Kentucky, on Marcli 20, when it ruled from the turf for life four jockeys and three owners and trainers for participating in the unsportsmanlike method of "fixed" racing. will stand as a monument to clean sportsmanship in the eyes of all racinji fans and true lovers of the sport for years to come. This action taken by the commission not only proves that "underhand" l'acing will not be tolerated but it urged, in its decision, that "all breeders, owners, trainers or anyone interesteded in good, clean sport to give at any time information to the commission for investigation that will aid them to catch and punisl offenders to the end that racing in Kentucky may be kept on the same higl plane that it has enjoyed in years past." The one thing that has ever remained as a detrement to the progress of professional sports since its beginning has been the criticism by unfortunate losers in the game, or by persons who do not participate in the sport and know nothing of its workings, that the commissions which run them are made up of men who work only toward the end of cheating the public; to obtain money by the easiest methods possible, but at the same time, through such a source that the public will not be able to come out openly and call them "crooks." The action recently taken by the Kentucky Racing Commission should be enough to prove that, this sentiment is false and unjust. Kentucky has been sponsoring horse racing for exactly one hundred years and each sue ceeding year has seen an improvement over its predecessor in the cleanliness of the sport. This is not only true of the turf but may be seen in all other professional sports: baseball, football, polo, tennis, field meets and most of all in the colleges and. universities of the country. The whole world of sportsmanship is striving for a higher, better standard and they are climbing nearer to its peak every year. This inclination toward cleaner sports should be especially practiced in the colleges and universities of the country because it is the college athlete who, in most cases, becomes the professional and if he detests crooked dealings in this line during his school career, he will also hold himself aloof from it after he enters the world of professional sports. The sport fanciers of the University of Kentucky wish to commend the State Racing Commission of Kentucky for its action taken on March 20 and hopes that this decision will remain as an inspiration to all professional and amateur sports and athletic circles throughout the country. RESOLUTIONS ON THE DEATH OP THERESA HARNETT Whereas, Theresa Barnett, the daughter of our friend and Brinkley Barnett, has been called to the Great Beyond, be it, Resolved by the faculty of the College of Engineering, University of Kentucky, that a copy of these resolutions be sent to her parents, to the press and that these resolutions become incorporated in the minutes of the proceedings of said faculty.

The paper had y printed the whole story written by Smith which recently appeared in ROBERT W. SPICER "Life has its compensations, For everything we lose, something is gained." Most of us in this largo world of ours spend half of our time railing against our Fate, and few there are who have learned the secret of accepting life as it is and making the best of the defects, but such a one is Robert W. Spicer, son of Mrs. J. J. Spicer of GQ9 Woodland avenue, this city. One never realizes how little the physical counts for in life until one knows Robert Spicer. Though physically a cripple, mentally and spiritually ho is the equal of any able bodied young man, and far the superior of some. Mr. Spicer is a junior in the College of Engineering at the University of Kentucky and is specializing in the the electrical department. He was recently pledged to Tau Beta Pi, honorary engineering fraternity, the for which are u standing of 1.8, outstanding ability in both scholarship and student uctivity, and leadership in the. junior class. In his particular line of work u pledge must have been one of the highest three in scholarship and ubility during his junior year. Needless to say Mr. Spicer more than fulfilled these requirements.

Frank Battaile, 39 years old, clubman and proprietor of the University Book Store, when the car which he was driving left the road nine miles from Lexington on the Richmond pike, and crashed into a fence about 10:30 o'clock on the morning of Friday, March 26 Mr. Battaile did not meet death immediately but a few minutes after the crash he leaned back into his seat at the wheel and died while persons were attempting to lift him from the car. Mr. Battaile left Lexington, about an hour before the accident, for Richmond, where he was going on business. He never returned. The cold hand of death reached out and snatched him into the Great Beyond, that world of mystery from which no one has ever returned, without so much as a moment's notice. r This young man, an alumnus of the university in the class of 1907, at one time a fellow here, was one of Lexington's most prominent citizens and one of the university's most ardent supporters. In community circles he held offices in both, the Rotary club and the Ashland Golf club; was a member of the the executive committee of the Alumni Association of the University of Kentucky; was superintendent of the S.unday school of the First Presbyter inn church; was owner of the University Book Store at 233 West Short street and also operated a branch of his business on the campus of the University ot Kentucky. During his college career, Mr. Battaile was a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity and during the war was attached to the intelligence department.
