The Kernel Is pleased to note the gratifying reception given to a petition. In circulation the current week, asking the students to agree to an increase of fifty cents per capita in University fees, for the purpose of aiding the various projects of the Department of Music of which Prof, Carl Lampert is head. Our information is, that this petition has been signed by virtually every student to whom it has been presented. This attitude on the part of the students reflects in a tangible way the popular student appreciation of the excellent work being done by Professor Lampert and his students. The Kernel would perhaps not be in error if it made the unqualified statement that no man upon the campus enjoys wider popularity among the students than does the gifted and of kindly head of the Department Music and perhaps none has brought about, in so short a time, so genuine interest in the work of his department. Professor Lampert always with untir ing energy, always with compelling grace, has given generously of his services and of the services of his talented family for the well being of nearly every student or faculty affair that he has been called upon so to assist, since he entered the faculty. The weather is never too inclement nor pressing duties too strenuous to make It possible for Professor Lampert and his Musicians to contribute to the enjoyment of entertainments in the University. The remarkable esprit de corps of his department owes itself to the magnetism and radiating generosi ty of the man. It is a source of regret to the Kernel that the University appropriation has not been sufficiently generous to give George T.

Garfield once said that a log with a student on one end and Mark Hopkins on the other would be a University. So it is with us. We have professors who are as good as those anywhere else, not as many perhaps, hut enough to hold the University through the critical period.

Lexington's Largest Department Store for The Kernel notes with much interest the proposal by Chief Justice Taft and others that the colleges of America take a ten year holiday from athletic contests. all intercollegiate The former President stresses the need of a return to the intellectual standards of former days, and a cessation of the spirit of rivalry now so prevalent among the institutions of higher learning. Dr. Ganfield, the former President of Centre College, and several other educators have expressed themselves to the same effect. With all due respect to the position held by the gentlemen who criticise the sports of the colleges, the Kernel cannot agree that the spirit of intellectual growth has been sacrificed to that of athletic rivalry. It is true that some of our athletes are not good students, but it is also true that many of the A are poor students. glance at the list of the great college men of the last quarter century shows that a surprising number of them were athletes. Undoubtedly some colleges have sacrificed too much to athletics, but these schools must not be reform ed at the expense of conservative in stitutions such as our own.
