CAMPUS Several Unique Features Are Incorporated in Official Senior Class Publication Oratorio Program Will Be Presented by Central Kentucky Choral Society Each year, a yearbook is published by the senior class of the Univern, sity. . This spring the 1929 official annual of the Unipublished by this year's seversity, nior class, has arrived from the printer, and soon will be ready for distribution. "It is unusual for an annual to be completed in such short order and, in fact, the book this year, holds the record as to early advent upon the campus'," according to John W. Dundon, Jr., editor. Jess C. Laughlln, Kentuckian business manager, stated yesterday the books would be ready for distribution some time the early part of next week. The books will be put on sale in the Campus book store, and all seniors can procure their copies by presenting University receipts for senior class dues. The chances are, according to those in authority, that the available supply of Kentuckians to undergraduates will fall far short of the demand, and the old rule of first come, first served, will apply. The Kentuckian of 1929 is edited by John W. Dundon, Jr., a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences, who is a member of the Alpha Tau Jess C. LaughOmega fraternity. lln, senior In the College of Engineering, is the business manager. He is well known in the engineering college, and is a member of TrianThe Junior staff Is gle fraternity. composed of Virgil L. Couch, junior editor, Alpha Tau Omega, and J. Henry Lewis, junior business manager, Sigma Alpha Epsilon. The cover of the annual is in black elephant grain leather, with an appropriate design on the front, embossed in gold, fitting in with the theme of the book. This year the Kentuckian has for its theme another period in the history oi tne state. The book opens with a repof a resentation, on the end-sheConfederate officer returning to his old southern mansion, to find it in ruins. The art theme then carries on throughout the entire reconstruction period of the south. The book is dedicated to Henry Watterson, former editor of the Courier-Journa- l, which he established shortly after the Civil War ended. There are numerous features in the book heretofore not Incorporated in any Kentuckian. There are three distinct border designs, one for the view section, another for the senior class section, and the regular design for the remainder of the book.
