DEC. 9 1913, VOL. VIII. 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 Maurle Crutcher, quarterback 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 Records 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. 'Miss Rebecca Smith, aSenior in the College of Arts and Science, was recommended by 'Dean Hamilton to join-thHenry Ford peace trip to Europe, in response to a telegram received Thursday, asking her to recommend a suitable young woman to accompany the peace party as a represent ative of the University. The telegram came too late, however, for Miss Smith to communicate with her par ents about the matter. Dean Hamilton also recommended Miss A. Evelyn Newman, of New York City, a former student of the University. On the peace ship which sailed Saturday, was Miss Helen Lowry, formerly a student here, who is making the trip as a representative of the International News Service. Miss Smith, who Is one of the most widely-knowand popular students of the University, is a Junior In the Department of Journalism. She is a linguist of considerable ability and was offered a fellowship in languages in the University this year. Besides standing high in her college work, Miss Smith is also a leader In college activities. She has charge of agricultural bullethe tin, Is of the Kentucky Kernel, and is on the Kentucklan staff. The fact that the University was ' called upon to recommend a student for the peace trip is an appreciation of the work that it is doing, and of the national prominence of Dean Hamilton, who was a delegate to the National Peace Conference at St Louis in 1913, and a former president of the Federated Women's Clubs of Ken tucky. n semi-monthl- y MATRICULATE COMES FROM SOUTH AFRICA i Arthur Clifford Royv Mapstone. of the province of Natal, Union of South The Patterson Literary Society met Saturday evening and the following Africa, has matriculated1 in the Col- PATTERSON SOCIETY program was given: "The Value of Studying History," by F.
