LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY. DEC. 9 1913,
of the. election of James William
("Fats") Thompson, star tackle and
irreslstable line plunger of the Wildcats of the past three years, wlho was
chosen last night to lead the football
eleven during the season of 1916.
The election was held at the dinner
given the team last Friday night by
Dr. John J. Tigert in honor of the
team. William ("Doc") Rodes and
end, respectively, were also nominated.
Thompson's election 'is a tribute .to
the consistent game which he has
played at all times. He was picked
for a tackle position on an
team by practically all the sport
writers' and college football coaches.
He is big and heavy, and possessed of
that equally valuable quality speed.
His home is in Falmouth.
In every game of the season Thomp- sea's-liabucking tendencies wsre en
couraged by frequent use of the
"Thompson back" formation when,
gains were needed and it was a
strong line that was able to deprive
him of quota of yardage.
show that his total number of. gains
for the season is greatly in excess of
that made by the average tackle. He
runs low and! his great strength carries him through many a tackier. It
is being whispered about the campus
that next year he may play in the
back field, if some one can be found
to take his place in the line.
After the election of captain Dr. Tigert presented each of the "K" men
with a small gold football on which
was engraved a "K" and 1915. In a
brief address to his guests Dr. Tigert
paid tribute not only to their ability
as football players individually, but to
their team work.

Saturday, was Miss Helen Lowry,

Miss Smith, who Is one of the most
