( . Q 48 THE KENTUCKY ALUMNUS . `l ` We have recently gotten in touch with several Kentucky State men who have been in Chicago for quite a while, but who have remained hidden, so to 3 speak.

Z On the 23rd of july the Cincinnati-Kentucky State University Club held a 1 mid-summer meeting. The "bunch" gathered at ]`ohn Griers Garden (better known as "Dutch ]ohns") at 6:30 p. m.

Seventeen sat down to a "regular chicken dinner" . with a good trimming of seasonable vegetables. And if you had seen the Ken- tucky Korn Krackers work on the "Roastenyears" you would be obliged to admit the ability and enthusiasm of the entire bunch. Members representing Q classes twentyfive years ago indicated no Hagging energy or disabled equipment either in repartee or mastication. .

Hopgood, 06, C. White, 09, and J. T. lj Towl, ,12, returned to Kentucky this year to spend their vacation. Mr. T. E. West has just returned to Kentucky after a visit here to his ~ sons, Messrs. Perry and Howard West. The boys say that there is nothing here, worth seeing, to which some of our boys havent an entre, either by l direct connection or association. This is rather gratifying, considering the _ i magnitude of the surroundings and the short period of time since the Kentucky boys began locating in this district.
