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.,
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
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.
