OMICRON DELTA KAPPA
Henry Maddox, President.
The Kernel desires at this its earliest opportunity, to express its
appreciation of the very gratifying position which was taken by the
Council of the University i in acceeding to the request made
by The Kernel through its editorial columns and by personal
appearance of its editor before the Council, that the holiday period incident to Thanksgiving season be so extended as to give students who
desired to attend the annual Kentucky-Tennesse- e
football game at
Knoxville, opportunity to do so without incurring the demerit of one-tenof dne credit from standings of such students as either left for
Knoxville before the prescribed holiday limit or returned to classes
after the concluding limit had expired.
The Kernel realized that in making this request it was asking for
a privilege that hitherto had never been granted by University authorities.
But by reason of the fact that the time elapsing between the
beginning of the holiday period and its conclusion would be too brief
to make the trip, and the additional fact that the student body desires
to establish upon this campus a more unified exhibition of university
spirit, it believed that the Council would at least give the petition
a friendly hearing.
This it did by extending the resumption of class
period until the fifth hour Friday following the game.
The Kernel makes bold to say that it believes the thinking class
of students who respect the rules of the institution will also appreciate
this unusual concession in that it will neither be abused nor will the
University Council have an occasion to regret its action. Indeed The
Kernel desires rbove all things, as far as it lies within its powers, to
create a better spirit of cooperation between University authorities
charged with the duty of administering its academic affairs and the
It is indeed a positive pleasure to record here this evidence of
what it believes will result in a better understanding between the

But in this connection, we hereby
seriously call upon the student body to show its appreciation of this

to abuse it .
There will be many occasions in the future when the student

opportunity will present itself many times to justify its pledge.
THE MEN'S STUDENT COUNCIL
Those who are acquainted with the history of student government
on the campus of the University since its inception find in the action
taken by the Men's Student Council relative to the conduct of students
at social functions much cause for hope that this msy be the beginning
of a more definite and active administration in affairs of student government.
Since student government was adopted on the casspus this lias
been tho first time that a student administrative body has tuken a
decisive stand. Formerly student organizations entrusted with governing power have preferred to let tasks, particularly disagreeable tasks,
devolve on administrative bodies composed of faculty members.
Tho Kernel is happy to note that in this instance the Men's Student
Council has determined to handle a matter In which that body must
deal directly with the students.
The Kernel trusts that the Council
will provo itself worthy of the stand that it has taken.
Council must prove itself worthy of Us trust, else hope for a true
government will have to be abandoued.
