of Sydney Schell and Hugh Jackson, has the affirmative

According to Prof. Sutherland,
University debate coach, this debate will be one of the most impor

"It is particularly important because of the current interest manifest in the question, not only by
economists, but the people of the
commercial world as well."

In Detail Conditions of
Speaking at the general convocation of University students at 10
o'clock Wednesday morning
Memorial hall, and taking as his
topic "The Operations of March 21,
1918," Col. O. P. Robinson, professor of Military Science and Tactics
at the University of Indiana, presented an interesting discussion and
a vivid portrayal of conditions existing at, what he termed, the
"turning point of the World War."
He stressed the necessity for pre
paredness, and suggested a medium
between the two extremes of prep
aration on the part of Germany
and unpreparedness on the part of
the United States at the outbreak
of the last war.
The Somme drive of March 21,
1918, was the biggest and the final
offensive drive made by the Germans. Illustrating his discussion by
various maps of the war area, Col.
Robinson pointed out the steps given in the following historical synopsis: "The first and heaviest blow
fell to the right of the British army
and at the right Junction between
the French and the British. It was
launched March 21 on a front of SO
miles, and continued until April 6."
In, concluding his address CoL
Robinson expressed 'his belief that
an army should be maintained by
the United States, not reaching the
extreme in preparedness such as
Germany boasted, but lying somewhere in the midpoint between the
great preparation of Germany and
the great unpreparedness of the
United States at the beginning of
the World War.

Queen of the May on May 2. at
which time the University will hold
its annual celebration of the advent of the month of flowers and
fair weather. On that day she will
ride at the head of a mammoth procession through the streets of Lexington, her native city, and will be
formally crowned with beautiful
ceremony on the campus proper.
Miss Kathleen Fitch, also of Lexington, a senior in the College of
Arts and Sciences, a member of the
Kappa Delta social sorority, receiv- el the second highest vote in yesterday's election, and as a result
will be maid of honor to Miss Baucom when she is made Queen of
the May. Miss Fitch will be remembered as the first Junior Prom
queen at the University of Kentucky, she having been elected to
that post last year at the first prom
queen election here.
Misses Katherine Davis, of Lexof Richington; Betsy Bennett,

Lexington, and Mary Sidney Hobson, of Ashland, Ky., were chosen
attendants to the ueen for the ceremonies at the annual festivities.
