Why, one is hard to get up and the other is hard to get down. This old conundrum might very well be applied to a feature of this week's Kernel, tho stricture on University debating. Like the pill, It is hard to get down, for dt states some rather disagreeable truths. But medicine is healthy, according to those who give it, especially for a sick man. And according to the writer, public speaking Is The Sick Man of the University. But unlike the Sick Man of Europe, his presence is too necessary to be spared. It has been said that oratory is the highest of all the arts wherein both thought and action meet. Its effectiveness depends in almost equal measure on action, which includes all the phases of delivery, and on thought, which includes argument and composition. The style of oratory offers opportunities for virtuosity almost as great as rhapsodic prose. A Cicero, a Demosthenes, a Burke, a Webster, a Bryan, are acknowledged masters of their respective languages. The supreme art of the actor finds adequate exercise in the delivery of a good speech. Aside from the practical benefits of public speaking, this art holds high rank from purely artistic merits; Therefore the Kernel welcomes any suggestions made with the intention of advancing the position of public speaking in the University. The author of the contributions in this issue of the Kernel on University public speaking lis not by any means a destructive critic. He holds out, after A searching examination of the situation and conclusions as to what is the matter, a remedy which the Kernel recommends to the attention of the Department of 'English in particular and to every student and member of the faculty who can utter two consecutive words without stuttering. This remedy may be like the hill referred to, hard to get up, and mount successfully, but the successful achievement of the ideal which the writer seems to hold before him would be of such incalculable benefit to the University and to each individual student, that no amount of effort and enthusiasm would be wasted in the undertaking. Accordingly, the Kernel suggests to the head of the Department of English that lie take steps to arrive at some sort of meeting of minds of those interested in the furtherance of the art of persuasion, in order that the condition pointed out by the author of the article in this issue, deplorable if indeed true, may be corrected by the proper steps. If such a thing is done, it will xako no prophet to predict that Kentucky will be even more successful, in this field now than she has been in the past, when with conditions very unfavorable to development of public speakers, she has won such honors in the field of intercollegiate contests. Honor comes not save with effort. QHIRREI FOOD Love Stories of the Alphabet. ETERNAL EGOTISM. Eugene edits "Evening Enterprise." Ernestine embroiders emblems. Ernestine endures Engene.

A handsome trophy will be given the winner of the contest which is open to anyone wishing to enter. A large number of girls have been practicing on the court at.Patt. Hall, and it is expected that there will be keen rivalry between the matches. Several girls have already entered their names for the tournament, and many others are expected this week. All those who wish to enter the matches are asked to leave their names at the girls' gym, with Coach . Blanding. Following the tennis tournament, sometime about the middle of May, a hockey contest will be held. Up to this time the weather has been so unfavorable that little could be accomplished with the hockey teams. But the girls have shown an unusual interest in this game, and such good work has been displayed that Coach Blanding feels sure that an interesting contest may be held. It is planned to have two teams selected from the classes, who will oppose each other in this contest. In this way, the faculty and students of the University will be able to familiarize themselves with a sport, which as yet is not popular at the University.
