SMITH AND CQHRQY
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
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
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

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,
