THE LOAFER, A SLACKER
Since some of the best informed men in this coun-
try and abroad have said that food will win the war,
and since no one wants barely to exist on short rations,
Food Administrator Hoover "expects every man to do
his duty." Any one who can add an onion or a potato to
the annual food production of the Allies should do so.
War gardens are becoming the fashion as well as the
Many students of the University will engage in
work during the summer months; some are preparing
for nothing but a loafing "spell." For the few who can
afford to, it would be proper to pass the summer in the
hammock with a magazine in times of peace, but under
present conditions, these few woud be, to say the least,
grossly unpatriotic. For anything that can add to the
food supply of the United States, and the health of the
individual is pressingly important. Agricultural students of the University will be especially in demand this
summer in cultivating the soil, and in so doing, they will
acquire practical experience.
OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE.
In compliance with requests of the Government
that the University of Kentucky aid in all phases of war
work, d students recently organized a charter of the
Red Cross here. The local chapter has been active during the last few weeks. Girls are seen going about the
campus every chapel day selling sandwiches and keeping the change, but buyers are heartily in accord with
the spirit of their rapacity as the proceeds are used to
help the Red Cross. Refreshments have been served at
some of the student dances. Last week a dance was
given by a certain branch of the chapter, the entire proceeds minus the cost, being devoted to the University
The Kernel heartily commends the work done by
this organization and commends the marked success so
far attained by it. It also commends the student body
for the liberal manner in which it has bought articles
arid amusement offered for sale by these patriotic girls.
The Red Cross, however, plans larger activities
than any yet undertaken. As will be seen in other columns of this paper, a war film of four reels, entitled
"How France Cares for Wounded Soldiers," has been
procured from the National Surgical Dressings Committee of New York City, by the War Committee, a University organization working in conjunction with the
Red Cross chapter, to be shown for the benefit of the
Red Cross at the Opera House May 1. As a supplement
to the moving pictures, a sketch dealing with the amuse
ment phase of hospital work at the front will be given
by The Strollers who recently scored so decided a success in their annual play. The Strollers are rehearsing
regularly and propose to make their part of the show
come up to Stroller standard.
In behalf of the Red Cross and The Strollers. The
Kernel recommends the performance at the Opera
House to the students and, in the belief that for the time
and money spent they will receive full value, advocates
liberal patronage. The entire proceeds from the sale
of tickets will be used for war work. One half of the
gross receipts of the picture and the sketch will go to
the University Red Cross; the remainder will go to the
National Surgical Dressings Committee of New York

ANOTHER U.K. MAN IS
ON WAY "OVER THERE"
Newspapers Monday made mention
of the departure of approximately
5,000 officers and men, composing the
Forty-fiftand Forty-sixtU. S. Infantry and the Twenty-sixtMachine
Gun Battalion, from Camp Zachary
Taylor to an unknown destination.
This division will probably be In active service. In this battalion is Robert E. Duncan, a former University
boy, who enlisted at the declaration
of war. With Duncan's arrival In
France, the University can claim over
fifty men "Over There." It is believed
that as many more are there, but
definite information has not been received for all them.
TO BANQUET TONIGHT
