The Kentucky Kernel I UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY i LEXINGTON, KYi. OCTOBER 28, 1921 VOL. XII SMITH AND CQHRQY ARE MOST POPULAR GIRLS Both arc Active in Student Affairs, Having Taken Part in Stroller Cast Believing with the adage that "what ever is popular deserves attention", the students of the University of Kentucky on Tuesday cast their votes for the two girls whom they adjudged to be the most popular in the University. Woman has gradually risen in the scale of humanity, until she now occupies a position loftier than which her proudest ambition need scarcely aspire, and in that evolution Kentucky womanhood has stood out as a beacon that light shines from afar. Life and the endless chain of years has taught that there is no beauty on earth which exceeds the natural lovliness of woman for they, "Formed by Nature, and finished out with arts Glide unfelt into our secret hearts." The contest of Tuesday last, conclusively proved that the realm of beauty and popularity has at the University of Kentucky been ruthlessly invaded by belles of the Blucgrass. The field is fruitful and it was indeed a task to choose only two from those "too fair to worship, too divine to love." In the four years that she has been nt the university, Margaret "Smith has received glory and honor in more than one form of student activity. Versatility has been her watchword and one pauses to gasp as one glances at the long list includes which of her achievements, such things as membership in Chi Omega, Sheta Sigma Phi, Honorary Journalism Circle, StrollFraternity Sister ers, Woman's Glee Club, Y. M. C. A., Council, Popularity Contest in freshman of freshtnd junior years, man and secretary of the sophomore class and sponsor for the University land. Kitty Conroy, now entering upon her third year at the University and recently chosen to be Editor of the 1923 Kentuck-int- i, has never failed to gain a host of admiring friends. Her tireless interest in all that tends toward the betterment of the University has manifested itself in all phases of student activities, includes licr record of achievements such as secretary of the sophomore class, sponsor for Company A, president of the Romance Launguage club, News Editor of Su-K- y (Continued on page 5.)

Tho play will bo presented in the Little Theater as a regular evening's performance and tho French students of the University and of the city as well a3 others who are interested, will be invited to attend.
