THE UNIVERSITY
At this time we wish to express our appreciation of the editorial which
appeared in the Lexington Leader of Wednesday, January 13, 192G, part
of which is quoted below. The newspapers of our land have an influence
so tremendous and
that it cannot definitely be estimated, and
it is through this medium, to n great extent that an institution makes
friends and goes forward. This is particularly true, when the time for n
decision relative to its progress is at hand.
"The University has reached a stage in its growth at which it cannot
any longer afford to develop haphazardly, and as chance permits. A comprehensive plan must be outlined and ndhered to. It has arrived at its majority. It has become the second largest State University in the South.
It can look forward to a student body of 10,000 in a comparatively short interval of time. It must build for the years of its stalwart and vigorous
maturity, in competition with other great and expanding institutions of like
character which arc being generously supported by an appreciative public,
and are being more and more thronged with ambitious and aggressive young
men and women resolved to secure an education and prepare themselves for
life in an era which will make greater demands upon human resources
of intellect and skill and character than any in the past.
"Education is thc only key to progress. Without it nothing can be
done worthily and well. It will open up the vast resources, human and material lying unexploited in Kentucky. It will increase the wealth and augu-methe happiness and contentment! of thc citizenship. It will build better
homes, better roads, better churches, better and larger banks, business houses,
factories, mininir operations, railroads and public institutions. It will solve
our political and social problems, insure clean and efficient administration
of the laws and of public affairs, remove inequalities and inequities, banish
poverty and vice and shed a fresh lustre upon the fame of the old Com
monwealth wherever the name of Kentucky is repeated.
Thousands of young men and
"Great things have been accomplished.
women have been set on the high road of success and honorable endeavor
Priceless human material has been recovered "from every nook and corner of
the State. Immense wealth has been added to the store of riches accumulated
With inadequate funds splendid and lasting results have been achieved.
"But a new era is dawning. A larger program must be prepared and
financed. The University must be cct like a city upon a hill which cannot
be hid, a center of light and learning which shall attract the admiration and
enlist the sympathies of every citizen of the State.
"It can be done. It is to be devoutly hoped that the new General As- smbly will honor itself by making a good beginning in the full sense of a
great responsibility."

THE AGRICULTURAL

COLLEGE

The following is taken from the editorial page of the Lexington Herald
of Monday, January 4, 1926. The Herald, through its columns, is always
ready to befried and boost the University in her plans for progress.
In a recent issue of the Kentucky Kernel there was publishd a most in
teresting review by Prof. George Roberts of the achievements of the Col
lege of Agriculture. This institution has playd a most important part in
the development of Kentucky. The University of Kentucky is the outgrowth
of the Agricultural and Mechanical College which was established under the
act, passed by congress in 1862. Pro
provisions of the Morrill Land-Grafessor Roberts tells how John B. Bowman, regent of Kentucky University, in
accepting the conditions of the legislature for incorporating the Agricultural
and Mechanical College with the university, pledged that he would pur
chase an experimental farm for the sole and exclusive use of agriculture
With monev raised bv Donular subscription 433 acres were purchased. The
work and activities of the College of Agriculture, the extension division and
kindred activities of the Experiment Station are reviewed by Dr. Roberts.
While the details of the activities of this institution may not be fully known,
there is hardly a farm or a house in Kentucky that does not have some
knowledge of some phase of the work done by the College of Agriculture.
One of the greatest handicaps of the College of Agriculture, Dr. Roberts
points out, is the lack of sufficient farm acreage for experimental purposes
Two years ago the college added 130 acres to the land already used.
Some may think without investigation that the extension and experiment
al work conducted by the state is done on a large scale at present. Investi-gaiowill show otherwise. A graphic illustration of this is given by Dr,
Roberts who points out that there are more than 250,000 farms in Kentucky
and there arc more than 1,300,000 persons, or more than half the people
of Kentucky, living on them.
Those who own, manage, or work on the farm of Kentucky do not have

time or facilities for research, investigation and intensive, specialized study

upon important subjects affecting agricultural development. A farmer without
the privilege of such expert advice as is given from the extension division
of the College of Agriculture is like a teacher or lawyer without the use of a

library.

The University of Kentucky banquet will bo held on Thursday, April 22. Tho Louisville club

Prof. A. E. Ligon, president of tho
K. E. A., professor in education, and
principal of tho University high
school, has called several meetings of
the K, E. A. committee from the
University, and indications point to
this being the best and biggest K. E.

If all of the members of tho Alumni
Association were as active in sending in addresses for Alumni on our
lost list, as a few of them are, we
would have no trouble keeping up
with the whereabouts of our alumni.
