Kirkpatrick BEAUTY WINNERS The eight most beautiful girls on the campus have been chosen and it is not infrequent that we hear comments as to their relative merits as beauty winners. These comments are usually of a deprecatory nature. Furthermore they express the general consensus of student opinion. The Kernel believes that, the present method of choosing the beauty winners by nothing other than a photograph, is a very poor one. No judge of beauty, no matter how good he may be, can fairly pick a campus beauty on a photograph. The Kernel is of the opinion that the best method would be to have all the girls who wish to compete in the contest make an appearance before the students on Amateur night, when the Stroller eligibles are chosen. At this time the students could form an opinion of their own and choose the beauties on their outstanding qualities, such as beauty of features, figure and personality. A vote of the student body should be taken the next day and the girl with the largest number of votes should be judged the campus beauty. Campus beauties should be chosen by the student body- and not by some one who has never seen them This, because she is to represent the beauty of thai student body. - WAILS OF THE WEEK Ollie Bowen True Mackey EDITOR Kenneth Gregory SPORTS ASSISTANTS o o Don't criticise the dean of men too severely.

And although it is not yet known as a certainty, it is altogether probable that the Wildcats will be invited to journey to the Conference tournament at Atlanta. If Kentucky takes the trip, fans hold, high hopes of their returning with the championship, and certainly the Wildcats have played well enough this season to warrant that assumption. The team, composed of new material, has conquered, during the course of the season, many of its faults. Wherever the team has gone it has won admirers. And it has won these admirers, not onlv bv the excellent brand of ball it has played, but also by its gallant sportsmanship. And so The Kernel wishes to congratulate each member of the Wildcat squad, and one mem ber particularly. That member is Captain Paul Jenkins who, this season, closes his athletic career at the University. Captain Jenkins, during the four years, he has engaged in athletics has made an enviable record, both in football and basketball, playing always a steady, headv game. The Kernel would like for him to know that the student body regrets the close of his career here. And The Kernel would express again its confidence in the team. The Kernel believes that they can and may win the Southern Conference championship. CONNELL, Editor RELEASE High thoughts and meditative ways Have gone from me; Above their grave my pen essays No homily. . All knack of phrasing has lapsed down Into decay. The paint and trappings of the clown Are swept away. And naught is left me but a sigh An old refrain A skull where songs were wont to lie The taint of pain. and paupered, too, Have lost have won. Have paid the last debt that is due, Am thrall to none. So I am rich from all the soul's estate This have I bought. Release from the dark plague of hate Of love once sought. Release N. G. A. VALENTINE I shall send this lovely one to. you, dear, It is so like you; the red of your mouth, The gold of your hair, the lace of your hands Framing the poem of your heart. See how this sharp silver dart Pierces those two crimson hearts Making them one? So, most beloved of valentines, Our hearts are linked by love. And when another year has passed You may find remembrance in this valentine. A GOOD SIGN The Kernel wishes to acknowledge the gift of the College of Engineering to the University in recogni tion of the proirram for Italian Month It is a full worthy gift and will serve to establish more strongly a movement that is comnarativelv new and a movement that has potent passibilities for stimulating the interest of students to a wider scope. And Dean Anderson in placing within the view of all. a re plica of a famous old sien and moreover a stm mf has such a romantic background, has created, whether intentionally or not, more interest than could be aroused Dy a aozen or so lectures on Italy. For it is only through a work of art that the people of another nation may come to show interest and un derstanding in a foreign people. About this queer piece of iron work, one feels there must be a story, and one finds that there is a story. The story is sure to reveal something about the people around whom it is centered just as this replica of an Italian ironworker's sign reveals the imagination of the artist who created it. M. C. TRANSIENTS and years and loves and laughter-- Nothing stays for very long. Lagging memories but murmur: "Nothing stays for vey long." Months I have heard all pain Chanting, chanting, the same "Nothing stays for and pleasure an old song measure: very long." COLLEGE TWO-YEA- R "If we are interested in education for democracy, our point of attack must fall at different level from that of the most favored, namely, the intelligent middle class of the population." This is the statement which Dr. C. E. Seashore, writing in the "School and Society" magazine makes concerning the present practice of mixing cultural education with practical education. Dr. Seashore writes further: "If the business man's son wants to get something better than a high school training for business, he is confronted with the situation "four years, no more no less" What he wants to do and learn, and what the community needs in the majority of cases, is a dignified practical course which will fit him not only for the conduct of his business, but for a and intelligent citizenship at his natural level of employment. And so, recognizing this not too obvious fact, Dr. Seashore suggests a college course, wherein the student would be given that which would be of definite value to him, and would not be bothered with a multitude of subjects which he cannot grasp, and which he does not need to grasp in the life work he is fitting himself for. Dr. Seashore would not, of course, have us abolish cultural education. He would simply distinguish between the two give education of a practical nature to those who desire nothing else and give a cultural education to those who desire nothing other than a cultural education.

M. C. Letters to the Editor - -- ill teacher Adv. Looking Over The Magazines o- - -- o (By J. Clark Graves) William Orton's article on marriage and ethics in the February 15 issue, of "The New Republic" should be read by all those who are interested in the ideas that are associated with the companionate marriage that is occupying so much space in the magazines. Mr. Orton argues that since the war our ethical code has been sustained by purely negative forces and that there is a decided need for our ethical code to be reconstructed. This reconstruction, he believes, can be accomplished only by making parenthood, not the marriage law, the binding element in society; by adopting a single standard of morality in which men will be held up to the same standard as women; and by the education of women for the purpose of stabilizing the ethical and moral code of man. "A Poet also Looks at Companionate Marriage," by Arthur Davidson Ficke, the author of "An April Elegy," and other volumes of poetry, in the February 8 issue fo "The Outlook," without being based as well on facts as Mr. Orton's article, releases, nevertheless, some interesting observations. For instance, Mr. Ficke writes: "Indeed, one can always detect in the marriage views of people past middle age a grim satisfaction in their conviction that marriage is going to be just as hard for young people forever as it was for them." Mr. Ficke opposes the views of Dr. Collins and the more conservative writers on the companionate marriage and argues for birth control with complete freedom of divorce, claiming that: "The genuine desire for either party to end a marriage is the only valid reason for ending it." In the February issue of The Bookman," I see that Upton Sinclair's contemporary, historical novel, "Boston," has begun serially and will appear in subsequent issues. To me, the new "Bookman" as a literary magazine stands second only to "The Dial," but I do not applaud the ap pearance of Mr. Sinclair's novel in its columns. Mr. Sinclair, as we all know, appeals to a large body of morally exacting individuals who would reconstruct the world upon some vigilant social scheme and he is ruthlessly pedantic in his condemnation of ev erybody and everything that fits into this scheme. I would suggest instead, in the February issue of "The Bookman," "Dean Swift and Vanessa," by Shane Leslie, and "On Some Hitherto Unpublished Letters of George Mere dith," by R. E. Gordon George, both (interesting and valuable articles. J Mr. Samuel Roth, the editor of sev eral monthly and quarterly magazines, among them The Two World's Monthly, The Two World's Quarterly and The Casanova Junior, is a literary plagarist of the first order and I should like to discourage the reading of his magazines. Besides printing Mr. James Joyce's "Ulysses" with severe omissions in the text, Mr. Roth has gone so far as to steal a poem from one of the leading poets of our time with no recognition or acknowledgment., of., copyright. Mr. Roth usually endeavors to make the good literature that he publishes appear obscene and he is unscrupulous in his treatment of it. i till i it C. P. A. Service.

Dear Sir: Every educatioaal Institution as well as every other enterprise in which human interest enters, has its pests. Many of them are avoidable, some are suppressable; but some one is compelled to endure. The university has its share of campus pests, all of whom are irritating to a degree. There is one type here that is especially irritating to many hungry souls at meal time, and that type is the Bluegrass belle who crashes the waiting line at the cafeteria. By what right does she presume to wedge herself into the lino wherever she may see a friend ? Is it because of her overwhelming Queen of Troy type of beauty, that male and female alike should do her courtesy by following her queenly wake? Is it because of marvelous scholarship that she displays that she is entitled to this privilege? Is it because of her social brilliancy that all must step aside and grant her the privilege which she is pleased to accept as a right? Nay, nay, Gertrude, it is none of these. It is merely because she is either equipped with a subline aiBoost of egotism that blinds her. to the most ordinary element of courtesy or that she is supremely indifferent to the attitude of the grumbling1 but courteous males behind her. Now aay one of these souls would be glad to accord her the privilege but do begrude her the right, however, she flutters by, without so much as a "by your leave, I thank you, or eo to thunder." SeriousTy, now girls, if you are so everlastingly hungry that you must crash in, go right up to the head of the line. Or if you have something important to say to your friend that you must visit with her right now, please step out of line and talk where you will not be disturbed. You are not gaining anything in the minds of those upon whose rights you have presumed. If you want courtesy, just use the old time policy of fair play, and you will have no cause to complain. What do you say, girls? ONE WHO HAS SUFFERED. Milton Sills, in the screen version of Peter B.
