Barnes Business Manager Assistant Business Manager -- -- 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 necessity. 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 Red Cross. 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 co-e- 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 City. yUjpfflRlREL jgpp FOOD 4 LYKELLE POEM NO. 27.

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. h h h LOUISVILLE ALUMNI TO BANQUET TONIGHT The Louisville alumni of the University of Kentucky, will have their annual dinner at 6 o'clock tonight at Klein's. A large attendance is expected this year because, in addition to the alumni who live in Louisville, and those who are there to attend the meeting of the Kentucky Educational Association, there is a large number of old University of Kentucky men at Camp Zachary Taylor. President McVey will be the chief speaker at the dinner. Among the other speakers there will be Prof. J. T. C. Noe and Major F. J. Montgomery, 334th Infantry, N. A. A coach class you'll try.
