Townsend, HOMECOMING 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.

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 There is the matter of seats. 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. !

They are hard fighters and never yet have let up a single second. They begin giving all they have and at the close of the game they still are giving their all, even in the face of defeat. Thanksgiving day will find them the same. While you may be forced to watch them go down in defeat, it will, by no means, be an ignominious defeat. You will be proud of those who carry on for Kentucky. - PETER BURNAUGH ANNOUNCEMENTS Dana M. Taylor, B. S. C. E. 1925, was a visitor on the campus last week.

In years gone by there was to be a program of events that took up most of the day. However observa tion has led us to believe that Home coming alumni, returning to see one of the big football games of the year do not want to be bothered with a lot of affairs not actually connected with a good time.
