made by the senior ball committee in
a meeting last Sunday afternoon.
The plan devolved from a discussion
in which facts were shown that Kentucky is one of the few universities
where anyone but seniors attend the
"senior ball." The committee put
through a modification of this by ruling that seniors, of course, will be allowed to ask anyone they wish and
that junior boys will be allowed stag
bids. That is, a senior boy may escort
a girl from any of the classes and a
senior girl may ask a boy from any
class for an escort.
