THE UNIVERSITY AND THE
The Kernel has on several occasions
given voice to editorial comment concerning the proposed bond issue that
is now before the legislative bodies of
the state. The field of comment is
just about exhausted. Still there is one
theory that the writer holds so far as
the University and her welfare are
At present all (indications point to
a favoralble vote on the $75,000,000
(bond issue bill. There will be no opposition from the Governor. The real
test of this measure will come when
it is put Ibefore the voters of the state.
Here we are afraid the proposition
will meet with its greatest obstacle.
The present fight against the bill indicates that there will be a still greater
one made against the issue when it
comes up for ratification by the voters.
There arc several phases of the proposed issue that can be easily condemned and these will serve its opponents as weapons to be used against
the whole issue.
There are those in the state who are
not so much interested in a widespread
prison reform; there are still others
who are not greatly interested in the
construction of roads other than in
their own localities. These men will
fight the whole plan just because there
are one or two clauses in it that they
do not approve. The majority, however, will not oppose the educational
clause, in fact they will be enthusiastically in favor of it; still it will have
to suffer with those that are undesirable to some.
There is, in the opinion of the writer, one solution of this problem: There
should be separate bond issues made
for each of its proposed beneficiaries
and these should be presented to the
voters in such a manner that they can
select those that they favor and vote
against those that they oppose. This
would make the University almost assured of her share. In fact the Kernel believes that she would come first
when the 'ballots were cast.

The editorial column, in addition to
comments on Burns' sympathetic alliance with the New American' republic,
concerns itself with the general bearing of Governor Fields' message to the
Kentucky legislature. Concerning the
proposed survey of Kentucky's resources the articles says in part:
"The significance of such a move
extends far beyond the borders of
Kentucky. Its citizens have played a
major role in the exploration and development of territories to the northwest and southwest that have far outstripped itself. In more recent times
