Praise for the work and growth
of the Summer Session was given In
an editorial printed recently in The
Lexington Leader, Lexington's afternoon newspaper.
The editorial pointed to the course
in diagnostic and remedial reading
as clearly indicating "the pains
which have been taken by the director of the Summer School, Dr.
Jesse Adams, to secure for the sessions the best available talent, and
to make the school equal to the most
noted in the country."
It is because of this policy of the
Summer Session, the editorial further pointed out. "that The University Summer School attendance has
grown so surprisingly, and beyond
the rate of growth shown by other
schools in the United States."
The complete editorial follows:
"It appears invidous, at first
glimpse, to give prominence to any
particular course, or courses, among
the more than 600 offered at the
University of Kentucky Summer
School, which so far, has increased
its registrations substantially over
last year.

Audience Applauds
Grace And Rhythm
Of Spanish Dancer
Is Colorful

By WILLIAM SCULLY
Depicting various phases of Spanish dancing. La Trianita, famed International dancer, performed before a capacity filled house at the
second convocation of the Summer
School held last Friday morning in
Memorial Hall. The audience accepted the artist at once as was revealed by the generous applause
that greeted her after her first number.
Vividly dressed In brightly colored
Spanish costumes, the youthful and
lithe little dancer revealed excellent
rhythm and grace in her interpre
tations of the varoius dances which
dominate parts of Spain.
Mr. William Kulkman, who assist
ed the dancer at the piano, was no
doubt an asset to the numbers In
which. La Trianita performed. His
music offered a splendid background
for the dances and was brought out
in such a fashion that one was
hardly aware of it.
As she entered on the stage for
her second number, dressed in gypsy
costume, French heeled slippers and
finger symbols, which revealed the
sound of bells. La Trianita distin
guished herself, inasmuch that she
was equally as capable in the por
trayal of the swaying and renberses
of the hauty, firey gypsy, as she
was in the more classical roles of
the sophisticated Spanish dancer.
Twice between La Trianita 's performances, Mr. Kulkman presented
selections of classical music at the
piano. The first was "Viva Navarro"
by Ra Regla and "Danza De Feugo"
by De Falla. The solos were nicely
done and added to the program, and
that they were enjoyed was shown
when the youthful musician had
to play an encore to his first number.
When La Trianita came forth with
her third number she wore toe slippers which could not be accounted
for, since the number was short and
consisted of no toe dancing but
merely a few pirouettes and steps
that ended after several enterchat-quatres.

Death Of Wagner

the wicked witch, who changes chilAd-alh-

dren into gingerbread and eats

Humperdinck's musical score is
considered by critics to be the greatest written since the death of Richard Wagner.
One of the best loved melodies in
the opera is the "Children Prayer."

In addition, two trained supervisors,
employed by the National Youth
Administration, were assigned circuits consisting of eight centers
each. Their Job is to organize various listening groups according to
the needs and desires of the communities. These groups consist of
current event clubs, children's
groups, farmer's groups, music appreciation clubs, and nature study
clubs. Each supervisor spends a
week at each center, enabling her
to make a complete circuit In two

his baccalaureate address to the graduat

use it may be put, can never be a substitute for
of woik,
work. Indeed, leisure is the
its content, if it is of value, must be derived
and
from productive activity.
"The assumption." said Dr. Dodds, "that a
man can express his real self in leisure-tim- e
activities and be happy in them, contains a
fundamental psychological error. It is demonstrating his worth as a worker, not by his prowess
and
in recreation, that a man wins
the respect of others. Here is to be found the
ultimate tragedy of an economic depression . . .
The way to be happy in your woik is to think
more about it, and less about a career. Thinking
about a career lessens the joys of accomplishIt will be your work, not your career,

will give you that peace of mind that enthat
dures."
These are grave, sound words.
poise, strength, enduring
satisfactions, growth in character and stability
and in worth to the community and to the world,
can come only through honest woik well done,
whatever it may be or whatever its monetary
compensation.
The human organism, the muscular system,
the brain cellsr the hands, the poencies locked
up in the mind, the relation which man bears
which is one of
the individual's responsibility to the race, all indicate
clearly that man is a worker, not a parasite. "He
is worth," as one great thinker has said, "only
what his work is woi th."
Many seem to think that work has been laid
on men as a kind of curse, coming down from
the fall of man. But the fact is that work was
the first ordinance of Cod. Adam upon his
creation was told to dress and keep the garden
in which he was to live. It was in an hour of
idleness that he was tempted, not while he was
busy with his work.
Recently Mr. George E. Sokolsky asked five
boys around the age of 12 years what they hoped
to do and to be as they grew to manhood. The
answers were various. One said, "I don't know."
The second declared that he wanted to be a
sports radio announcer. Another said, "I suppose I'll find a job." Still another confessed that
he had nothing in particular in view. The last
one declared that he was anxious to have a job
cut of which he couldn't be thrown. He craved
security.
None had very high ambitions, and work
seemed to all of them a rather distasteful necessity, a means of getting food, clothing, and shelter. As a means of releasing human energies, o(
cultivating human capabilities, of associating
the individual with the other members of the
i ace in a common enterprise, as an opjortunity,
blessing and avenue of
a privilege, a God-giveapproach to the great ends of life and the great
joys of existence, it didn't appeal.
Perhaps these boys were too immature to
understand the matter. But how about thousands of college and university graduates and
millions of adults already earning a living or
looking tor jobs? Do they know the inner meaning of work?

The National Safety Council in its campaign
to reduce the Nation's number of accidents has
enlisted the support of President Roosevelt, governors of 48 states, motor vehicle administrators,
heads of the slate highway patrols, mayors of
every city over 10,00(1 and chiefs of police of
those cities.
Last July 10,200 Americans were killed in accidents. And each year the July tragedy toll tops
every other month. This July bids fair to top all
ether marks, since July 4 falls on Monday.
