The campus philosopher pauses to remark: It is a good time for the the Freshmen to Senior Rules. Remember Frosh, that ignorance of the law excuses no one. Tomorrow afternoon at Cambridge, Massachusetts, the Centre College eleven will meet .the Harvard aggregation in what promises to be one of the greatest games that has ever been played. What the result will be no one can tell, but one thing is certain and that is the Colonels will fight to the last mfoute to bring victory to the Bluegrass State. Although outweighed Centre has a faster team than Harvard and boasts and the service of two one of the greatest full backs of all times. McMillan, Weaver and Roberts will cause the wearers of the crimson to use every bGt of energy and strategy they can muster to stop them and even then It is doubtful if they will succeed. Centre has a wonderful team and although she has engaged in no real tames this year it is plain to be seen that the Danville team has the ability to cope with any team in the count ry. The students of the University of Kentucky are behind the Centre team and wish the Colonels success in their eastern venture. It will mean a great deal to Kentucky to have a team from this state trounce the New Englanders and show the world that the East la not the only section" of the country where real football teams are found. GUEST AT UNION ROYAL ORDER OF FISH REORGANIZE STUDENTS BEHIND THE COLONELS No. 4 i j try-out- 'act. Freshmen, if the glamor of the footlights and the thrill of applause does not spur you on to ambition, perhaps the love of cbntest or even the need of an extra meal ticket may goad you to an effort. If you are afraid to try the rocky road to fame alone and are a disbeliever In the adage, "he travels fastest," persuade a friend to let you act as butler, maid, coachman or whatnot, in his skit. You will then be classed as one in a double act. Of course If you win the prize, you will then have but the price of a meal instead of the whole ticket, but you may be a member of the Strollers, "Which, after all, Is the point." "K" BANNER IS STILL MISSING Students are Urged to Aid in Finding of Kentucky's Standard. What has become of the "K" banner? Many and varied have been the theories. The banner disappeared from view some time after the football season last year and as yet has not put In Its appearance this year. Perhaps some thoughtful person took It home to care for it during the summon Perhaps some ono took It to decorate his room or fraternity house. At any rate It Is missed at tho football games and rallies. Every ono Is urged to assist In locating the banner. It has been missed on every occasion. If you know the thoughtful person who took it homo to care for It, but who was not thoughtful enough to return It, pleaso remind him that It Is needed. If someone took it merely for a selfish purpose, reason with him g'ehtly butt firmly. Imagine our team on foreign fields without tho encouraging sight of the old "K" banner. What can take Us place on our own field? Get behind every ono and help locate our sacred emblem. Tho success of every rally, every parade nnd every game depends upon its return. I
