The Kentucky Kernel
S. C. Johnson
Our years draws near to its close, and in this, the last issue
of the Kernel, we feel that we can do no less than bid a fond and
regretful farewell to the members of the clas sof 1916. Through
four years of storm and stress, of struggle and glorious achievement, they have kept ever before them the ideal of duty to their
University and of friendship to their fellow workers.
their support, no good tradimovement has ever failed to receive
tion has been allowed to die away while they had power to uphold it. We do not know of a finer or more unselfish act than that
of the class of 9 6 in establishing a loan fund to aid poor students who are forced to earn their way through the University. It
is sincerely to be hoped that succeeding classes will continue this
Then boldly came the loud reply,
That none could e'er confuse:
"We'll surely throw that senior ball
If seniors pay their dues."
We who are left behind want the class of ' 6 to know that
they are not unappreciated, that they are not unloved, and that
their spirit will remain with us when their earthly selves are far
away. The Kernel and all who know them, we feel sure, unite in
hoping that they, "who have so successfully sailed their barks
over the placid lake of college life, will meet the waves of the
broad sea of world life in the same grand spirit, .and at the end
sail out into the purple sunset to meet the brighter dawn which
lies beyond the depths of night as bravely and as happily as they
met the dawn of this bright spring morning."
Hail to you, 1916; hail and farewell! The rainbow years of
youth with us were not your los3, we feel, and certainly they were
our gain. Success in all good things be yours!
