Never has that'band of alumni met since Herbert retired as secretary that some splendid admonition ef hia has not been recalled and heeded. His spirit seemed to guide it even from afar.

Y., the morning of the 8th inst. i This young man was not only a member of thjs organization but was instrumental in founding it at the University of Kentucky. Throughout the years of his studentship and subsequently as an alumnus, his loyalty was at all times unswerving and his leadership in it was one of its outstanding marks of distinction. As a student of this university, subsequently as alumnus, as soldier, teacher, writer, civilian, his every net marked him as a man of vision and purpose and lofty integrity. Be it resolved, therefore, that in his passing we who are left are called upon to surrender a comrade whose place cannot be filled and Whose comradeship will be an abiding source of consolation throughout the years to come. Resolved further that these resolutions be offered to the daily papers, the Kentucky Kernl,'and that a copy be sent to the bereaved family. also passed unanimously and was to the effect that smoking, profanity, tobacco chewing, and petting us in by college women should be condemned. We hadn't known about the chewing tobacco. ( CONTINUED MEETS 0 The automobile was thrown against some freight cars on a siding and broken into bits. Major Graham was thrown clear of the wreck and landed in a snowdrift more than 150 feet from where his machine was struck by the train. Death resulted immediately from a fractured skull, while his right shoulder and knee were also fractured, in addition to several cuts and bruises. The crossing where the wreck occurred is not protected by safety gates and the watchman leaves at 10 o'clock. A bell and signal light are supposed to warn motorists of approaching trains, but it is thought that Major Graham failed to hear the bell, if it was ringing, on account of the rough traveling caused by' the frozen remains of a snow. Was Popular on Long Island Major Graham was president and of the Huntover Press, Inc., which publishes the New Era in Lynbrook, the Enterprise at Oyster Bay, and the North Hempstead Record. The editor was founding a fourth newspaper at Port Washington, Long Island. He was closely associated with Col. Floyd C. Gris- - ALUMNI ASSOCIATION When the University of Kentucky granted to Herbert Dade Graham a baccalaureate degree, the incident was, as the hundreds of others, without particular comment except for the applause of his fellow 'Students. Time passed and the boy who had met his school day tasks with such determination faced the great question of his country's entrance into the World War promptly and as he had done before he returned to Kentucky from France wearing the emblems of his well earned honors.- - His country ,Jike his fellow students on his graduation day, applauded and he received a certificate of excellence, a credit to himself, his family and his Alma Mater. Herbert Graham had changed from the cadet to the soldier and had gone through an eternity in those years abroad but his countenance was not darkened by the thoughts of his experiences; he had not grown old under the demands of his duties; his step was as light and his voice as convincing as in his boyhood days. He next turned his face toward the duties of being an American citizen who would justify again and again his existence. Herbert Graham was a man. . His associates in every relationship have paid him this tribute. It was a privilege to know him. He is dead at the age of 30 years but he did not die in his prime nor yet in his youth for he had accomplished more in his short span than it is given to many men to do in twice the number of his years. For all the deeds of preparation, of friendship, of loyalty and of Valor again he must be awarded a certificate of merit this time inscribed, "to one who did all things well." His body has been brought to his beloved Kentucky for whose glory he labored and to which he returned frequently in life to mingle again with his friends, of the happy past. Let this message from the Alumni Assoeiation of the University of Kentucky express for him an undying appreciation. W. C.
