ANNIVERSARY OF BASEBALL GAME IS CELEBRATED The game of baseball, the national pastime, Is celebrating Its ninety-secon- d birthday. Baseball had its n, inception in the little town of New York. Abner Double-da- y n, of Green Select School made the first diagram of a baseball diamond, drawing a stick through the dust to indicate what sports writers have come to call th "paths" and to show the players positions. With a pencil, he ithen made notes on rules for the game, which he named "baseball." Abner Graves, one of the youths who took part in the game under Doubleday s direc tion, lived to tell this to an official commission appointed to study the origin of the game, in 1917. The first diamond now is known as Doubleday eld. All local games are played there. The villlage owns the property and uses part of it as a playground. Not until seven years after Doubleday drew his outline was the first game played between rival teams for a prize. That contest took place at Hoboken, N. J., June 19, 1846, with the "New York Nine" playing the Knickerbocker, which had introduced the game to New York City in the previous year. The "prize" was a dinner. The "New York Nine" won. Abner Doubleday apparently hardly regarded the outlining of the first baseball diamond as an episode In his life. He subsequently was graduated from West Point and entered regular Army service. As a captain of artillery, he sighted the first gun fired by the Union forces during the, Fort Sumter fighting at the outbreak of the War Between the States. Later, as a Major General, he was in command of the Union Army at the close of the first day's fighting at the battle of Gettysburg. He died at Mend-haN. J., In 1893. Abner Graves, Doubleday's biographer as regards the Incident of the first ball field, was a fellow student at Green's Select School and became a mining engineer at Denver Col. It was his description of Doubleday's diamond that first led the official commission to consider Cooperstown, as the cradle of the national game. Faculty Bowling Season Is Closed; Echini Win Title The faculty bowling season closed Wednesday night with a win by the Echini marking the finish. A handicap tournament will be held next Wednesday night in which prize money will be offered to the individual having the highest score and the one making the most strikes. The season's records are figured on a basis of CO per cent of the In season's average and 200. Wednesday's tournament, the high est score in three games plus the handicap will receive the high scor ing prize money. The following list shows how the teams finished.

The massed intelligence of an entire fraternity or sorority could think of no more useless, hopeless topic for nn editorial. We're all Jealous, more or less, and If we bottle ourselves up, it Is with the apparent presumption that a Kernel editorial Is more persuasive than human nature. Which is a reckless statement to say the least. Any attempt to Interfere with expression of unjustified opinion will end in rniiurc, ana even lr it accidentally succeeds, it is certain to encourage more underhanded means of venting poison than unfair criticism. If much criticism on the campus is baseless, ID is, lat least more comfortable to some persons when constructive criticism Is snubbed for childish prattle. What harm, fin ally, can result from cnatter or thoughtless habitues of the bull And, after all, It is much too late for an editorial to seek to change human nature. Criticism Is one of the prerequi sites for prominence. Without it, one seldom can become known. So, bring on the criticism, and If we can't stand up under It, we don't belong in any campus office. PROGRESS AND STUDENTS One department on the campus is not increasing In number of students enrolled. U anything, some of the courses taught by one of the professors in this department are being taken by fewer students every year. Perhaps in the dean's office the books indicate that the good professor's classes are not keeping pace with the gradual growth and progress of the university. But figures are notorious liars. professor Is one of the few This professors on the campus who demands a little work from his studentshence the scarcity of college lizards that face him. Those (I who do come to him 'happen suppose that's the popular word for It) to learn sociology, and learn it thoroughly. The scarecrow he uses so successfully in frightening off shiftless Individuals in every course he teaches is the assignment of a fiong, Iwritten report on a large number of pages of collateral reading. Give the majority of Kentucky's students a bit of work and they'll walk out on you. A college career Is all right for them but the idea of letting professors take advantage of them by making them study is preposterous. It would be a godsend to the pro gress of the university if there were about 200 more professors as exact ing in their demands for student study as Is this professor, because then the lizards would worK or they'd have to jump into the nearest lake. So, even, with a decreasing enrollment in the department under discussion, it 'happens' (again) to be the soundest basis for belief that Kentucky's university is actually making an honest effort to And for truth educate students. about the primary urge for higher education in America, what more devastatlngly ruthless disclosure is more enlightening? LIBRARY PROCEDURE Now when you get a book from the library, you just about have to sign away your life. Only thing they leave unasked Is why you were born. It's awkward procedure, and long, and annoying. And worst of all, on the argument that It enables rendering of better service, it is the system threatened to be used when the new library opens. SKETCHES AND WRITINGS Sometimes it is embarrassing when two kinds of students pit their particular talents against each other, and the one so far excels that It Isn't even funny. Four years, now, I've been reading The Kernel, readstory in it, ing every worth-whi- le readng the work of the best writers The Kernel could get, and conscientiously trying to enjoy their bright lines. Sprinkled in, occasionally with reams of mediocre stuff there have been clever, keen bits of careful writing.
