The one day in the whole year when the majority of alnmni
want to return to the campus is the day of the Homecoming
game. This year the game will be on Thanksgiving day the
day when the football season is officially closed. A game on this
'day is a stronger drawing card than any other day in the whole
year according to our viewpoint. It is usually the last chance
to see a football game for many months. This year much has

team. We have faced odds all year that at the outset Beemed
positivly insurmoutable. Still we have, to a certain extent, overcome a part of these odds. The schedule this yeaf, as every one
knows, is as hard as that played by any team in the South. We
have been handicapped by a lack of enough material with which
to make a winning football team. Our men are small and this is
realized more and more each game when they face their opponents.
At the present plenty of

seats are available for this game but experience has taught us
that seats on Kentucky's side of the field do not last indefinitely.
At most of the games this year they have been all taken on our
side of the stadium. We here in this office would like very much
to help you in any way that we can. We will reserve seats for
you, and get the best available. We will make hotel reservations,
learn the road conditions and tell you the train schedules. In
other words we are anxious to do anything that we can to assist.
We want you to come home for this game; This office is maintained for the benefit of the alumni and the university, and anything in the way of service for either is a pleasure to us. Be
sure to call on us for anything you want.
We are gratified with the response that has been made to
our appeals for information concerning the alumni whose names
