Special Rental Rates to Students serves, according to word that has come to the many Lexington friends of Colonel Day. After leaving the University of Kentucky Colonel Day received an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. He was graduated from the Academy with the class of 1897. He immediately entered the United States Army and is just now rounding out 30 years of service. He has been stationed in various Army posts in the West. After the n War he was assigned to duty with the Army of Occupation in Cuba. He later was transferred to Hawaii. During the World War hi was in charge of the American aviation activities overseas. For the past two years he has been stationed at San Antonio, Texas. Ilis new headquarters will be located in Denver, Colo., where he will make his home. Colonel Day is related to a large number of Kentucky people and many of them, like himself, are graduates or former students of the University of Kentucky. He is one of several alumni of the university who have chosen the Army as careers and who .have attained important posts and high commissions in this branch of the service. Colonel Day already has assumed his new duties and is now located in Denver. a HELP FOR THE Opp Courthouse Progress of Intercollegiate Sport at State College Up to 1915 As Told by First Coach Will Be Run As Serial.
