THE KENTUCKY KERNEL Page Two MEMBERS Alumni Notes Editor ADDRESSED H. H.

H. Grooms, a member of the Student Speakers' Bureau. The meeting was held in the office of Dr. Carl Xorflcct, a former student of tli c University of Kentucky. Grooms 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 otTiccrs of the Pulaski county club are: V. D.

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 '06 ghth Burns day celebration of the Caledonian Club at the Hotel Magcc received Wallace Hopkins '17 his B.

In his address the governor of the progressive Southern state attributed the development of the state's resources to the men and women of Scottish birth or descent who retained the lessons of the motherland as a guide in the business and state affairs and the poetry of Robert Burns as a guide to the heart. We accept his explanation but at the same time recall that North Carolina entered upon a great program of road building and school the improvement a few years ago. Did the roads and schools bring or did the economic development bring the economic development hand in roads and schools? We would answer, neither! They go lack of either retards the hand, the one always helps the other, the other.

The University 'becomes a power for usefulness solely through the influence of the alumni. The student body from year to year are in fact the potential alumni. The status of every institution of learning in the world of affairs is determined solely by its alumni. The University of Kentucky is now years old. Throughout the breadth of this land there are to be found graduates who are exponents of the soundness of training received at the university of this commonwealth. In our judgment there docs not exist an alumni organization of any other university that possesses a larger percentage of enthusiastic and devoted membership than does our own.

Campaign $5 in 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 y 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. wrote, Bartholomew "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.
