talked to the alumni about the progress at the University, ending with
the proposed bond issue and the value
it would have for the University and
rural education. The Somerset and
Pulaski alumni were heartily in favor of the proposed bond issue for the
University, although there is some
disagreement in the county as to voting in favor of the entire amount of
the bond issue.
Plans for improving the work and
increasing the membership of the Pulaski Club were discussed by the members after the talk 'by Grooms. The

A few years ago people thought of North' Carolina as a mountainous Southern state which had lost all during the War between
the States without being able to regain its stride with the rest of the
South after the days of reconstruction were over and the New South
arose from the ashes of its former glory.
How wrong such an opinion would be now, although it would
have been correct fifteen or twenty years ago, is shown by the address of Governor Cameron Morrison, of North Carolina, at the
Burns day celebration of the Caledonian Club at the Hotel

Carolina entered upon a great program of road building and school

For Patterson Memorial
The Greater Kentucky
fund was the recipient of a contribution from a very unexpected source
several weeks ago When a five dollar
gold piece was received by Dr.
from AV. H. Bartholomew, of
Louisville, a school teacher now more
than 83 years oM and not a former
student of the University.
Mr. Bartholomew wrote a letter to
Dr. McVcy and requested that his contribution go toward the erection of a
memorial for President Patterson. In
his letter Mr.
"Dr. James K. Patterson, the illustrious president of the University of
Kentucky was for many years a beloved and esteemed friend of mine
whose memory I desire to assist in perpetuating by subscribing according to
my financial ability to the proposed
memorial in his honor."
A gift from such a source is received
very gratefully by the University, and
the Alumni Association will take this
opportunity to thank Mr. Bartholomew in addition to the personal letter of thanks he received from Dr.
McVey when the letter was received.
There are many alumni who remember President Patterson with a great
deal of love and to know that there are
men near his age out through the
state who also wish to see a memorial
in his honor is very gratifying.
