JM COMPLIMENT TO COUNCIL -- HAVE BOT Net Tossers' New Home Promised for High School Tour- nament TO BE FINEST IN SOUTH TEAM TO Three Courts and a Seating 13-1- 27-1- j May-fiel- 1 two-third- The baseball season, which is rapidly approaching will find the University of Kentucky with few letter men but much high grade material gained from the 1923 Freshman nine. Captain Rouse, Miller, Gregg and Stokes are the only letter men who remain, the rest having been lost through graduation. The varsity team will be composed largely of last year's freshmen. Reed Miller, who last year cavorted in center field will probably be found at first ibase when the season opens' as "Daddy" Glenn,i the freshman first sucker did not return to school this year. This leaves the entire outfield open for the material of which there is a large quantity. Hughes and McFarland ia addition to their pitching played in the outfield. All there are steady hitters and sure fielders. Lyle Croft will probably fill the vacancy at third base which was left by the graduation of Arnold. Captain Rouse will possibly ibe shifted from short to second, leaving that place open for either Adams, captain of the 1923 Frosh, or Bill King who formerly held that position. "Chuck" Alberts will give Rouse plenty of competition for the keystone sack. The catching staff has two aspirants of merit in Derrick and Sauer. s Both of these men caught for the last year and Sauer also played in the outfield, part of the time. The Wildcat pitching staff should be stronger this year than it has been for quite a while. Two regulars, Gregg and Stokes, will return. Then there are several men who were on the squad last year but did not break 'nto the linup enough to earn a letter. From the freshman team, the varsity gains Riffe, Samuels, Vossmeyer, Hughes and McFarland, svho should add great strength to the staff Cy Barger will again coach t!c Cats as Fred Murphy, the new coach, does not take over the baseball duties until the end of this season.

ROBERTS The weatherman, Kentucky's trickbeen responsible for the delay in the building of Kentucky's new basketball building and thus for the unfinished condition of it. Indirectly, the same factor has been responsible for the congestion, pushing and begging for seats at all of the Wildcats' home games this season. However, we are promised a completed building for the high school tournament to be held here March 13, 14 and IS. George B. Carey, chairman of the building committee, said in an interview: "I think you can state with a good deal of certainty that the building will :be ready for the high school tournament." When the contract was let the building was promised for January 15. However, brick cannot be laid when the temperature is below freezing and much time has been lost in this phase of the work. Last week the brick contractors were able to work only two hours, it seems that this week will be a repetition of last. Mr. Shea, the brick contractor, says that he can finish laying the brick in twelve dayr Com- The Blanchard Construction to ster, has Season Exercises in honor of Lincoln's birthday were held Tuesday morning at the fifth hour in chapel with President McVey presiding.

Similar Petition Soon LINCOLN HELDJH CHAPEL The Men's Student Council of the University will have representatives ott both the University Senate and the Discipline Committee, the membership of which has been confined to faculty memlbers exclusively in the past, it was decided at the regular meeting of the Senate held Monday afternoon. The petition of the Coun c for such representation was pre sentcd to the Universiy Council which reported favorably to the Senate by whom it was passed without delay. This action on the part of the sen ate is a decided compliment to the Student Council and shows that the senate is keenly aware of the close spirit of cooperation between students and faculty, largely brought about by the efforts of the Student Council Marshall Barnes, president' of the Council, said that menUbers would be selected from that body at their next meeting to fill the newly created position. It is understood that the Woman's Association 'Government Student will present a similar petition at an early meeting of the senate. Memlbers of the Senate 'were confident that this request would be granted by their or ganization. This will serve in a very great measure to link the student body and faculty closer together. Among the other important rules passed by the Senate at their Mon day meeting was the decision that all dances must be held on Saturday nights or on the night preceding a holiday. The Social committee of the Student Council was asked to arrange their program to conform to this ruling. The reason given for this ruling was that so many fraternities had asked for dance dates on Friday nights WEATHERMAN SLACKENS AND STUDENTS HONORED Professor George' Roberts, head of the Department of Agronomy of tin University, has been selected to head the local chapter of the American Association for the coming year. The other officers elected include Dr. J. B. Miner, Prof. S. E. Leland, secretary-treasure- r, and Dr. W. D. Funkhouser, member at large of the executive committee.

Heretofore any type of uniform was permitted at the ball, but it has been decided this year to limit the uniform to the regulation uniform provided by the school. Alt advanced men are requested to wear their uniforms, but the basic men may wear either the uniform or a tuxedo. Tickets may be procured from any member of the committee or from Captain Beturum at any time before t dance. The committee has spared no effort to make the ball the ibest in the history of the department, and with tlx of the students, this end will be easily accomplished. 1
