Kentucky Champions Defeat Rochester, N. Y., Team in Last
Game of Chicago Tour- nament 18 to 16





Monday night the fighting little St.
Xavians, of Louisville, captured the
national Catholic interscholastic basketball championship by defeating the
Aquinas five, of Rochester, N. Y., at
the Loyola gymnasium, in Chicago.
Not until the final minute of play,
when a field goal, tossed by Smith,
'forward, was the game decided.
Throughout three quarters of the
game the Rochester team maintained
their lead by a point or two, only to
lose in the last few seconds of the
contest. The championship game,
probably the hardest fought one in the
tournament, was a battle l'oyal from
whistle to whistle, and the diminutive Kentuckians deserve the highest
praise for their hard won victory.
Hendricks Honored
The gameness of the youngsters is
evinced by the fact that after the
gruelling contest they had to be assisted from the floor. Hendricks, whom
the Chicago Tribune said was without
doubt the best guard of the 32 teams
entered in the tourney, was uwarded

Two Performances April 6;
Special Matinee Prices
Given to Students





On Tuesday, April G, the Cleveland
Symphony orchestra is coming to. Lexington for two performances. This
orchestra is being brought .to Lexington under the sponsorship of Miss Ann
Chandler GotT, of the Lexington College of Music.
The matinee will be given
at 4
o'clock so that school pupils and. teachers will be given an opportunity to

hear this orchestra without missing
their work. Students and teachers
have the privilege of attending the
matinee for 50 cents provided the tickets are purchased in blocks of ten or
more. Any schools are eligible to this
rate if they will write for tickets. The
university tickets for students may
be purchased at once, at the office of
the College of Education. Tickets for
persons not included in the rates Will
be S1.G5.

This orchestra, composed of 1)0 men,
one of the five best orchestras in the world today, and its
coming to Lexington will doubtless
be greeted by two capacity audiences.
It is certainly a rare opportunity for
Lexington and surrounding towns to
hear a real good orchestra.

House Bill (503 commonly known as the five" million dollar cducationa

Governor Fields had a very 'well defined plan which would have raised
money for the educational institutions had it been pnssed by the legislature,
'His method was to plnce a luxury tax on .manufactured tobacco and soft
'.drinks and an income tax. It is true that the latter might not have been
popular had it become a law but the scale was not so high as the federal
and such a tax could have been imposed without hurting anyone, and espec
ially so when it would have been used for the adwheement of the higher

came from the big tobacco manufacturing interests who were powerful
enough to pull the wool over the eyes of some of our best business men
These men came to Frankfort and closeted themselves together with certain
senators and representatives whom they knew to be Readers, in the restroom
of the senate and there raised such a howl about the Governor's plans that
it was thought that they could not be passed through the legislature.
order to lead those who were interested in funding the state debt, rebuilding
the. penal and charitable institutions and advancing the educational institu
tions away from plans already suggested, they brought up the wonderful
thought that they would sponsor a $14,000,000.00 bond issue to be as
5,000,000.00 for the penal and charitable institutions; $4,000,
000.00 to fund the state debt and $5,000,000.00 for the university and would
use their influence in securing the passage of acts providing the submission
to the people at the next regular election these three bond issues.
agreed to go even further and to work for their passage next November
These acts were drawn up and introduced and when they came before the
house of representatives it was only after the hardest fight that they were
passed, and the university bill was so dressed up with a lot of
clothes that its own dearest friends could scarcely recognize it. It had been
changed to permit the university to get the huge sum of $3,000,000.00 over
a period of five years, to give the school of the blind at Louisville $150
000.00; the school of the deaf at Danville $150,000.00; the colored normal at
Frankfort $100,000.0 and to create a colored normal in the city of Louisville
granting it $400,000.0; to create a white normal in the sixth congressional
district allowing it $400,000.00; another in the eleventh congressional district
which would reap $400,000.00 and still another in the Big Sandy Valley with:
',tn allowance of $400,000.00.
It was obvious from the beginning that the men from western Kentucky
.! , realized that all ,that great section west of Louisville had been forgotten
,; and men especially interested in the present four normal schools asked
V7 since it has been so hard to secure appropriations sufficient to barely exist.
what in the world would they get if four new normals should be established
We were not willing to sit idly by and see the university get into
losing fight and one that would in our judgment result in more harm than
good to it. It was for this and the reasons just stated that .we had the bill
amended in the senate cutting out the creation of the four new normals and
asking that the university be given $4,600,000.00 and permitting the rest to
go to. the schQol of the blind, the school of the deaf and the colored normal
and industrial institute; all of which are going schools but who need funds
very badly for the purpose of making improvements and extensions. We
were willing to go to the people of the whofe state and ask their support
of such a measure but we could not have conscientiously asked them to sup
port it as it first passed the house. It is said that when thi measure was
sent back to the house for concurrence in this amendment that it carried
.when voted upon by a viva vocie vote but that when the roll was called
upon final passage of the bill with the amendment it lost on the roll call
to the tune of 36 to 40.
We observed a sigh of relief coming from many of those who are really
interested in the university when the result of this vote was announced
and we surmised that they felt that they had rather lose a good fight on the
tfloor of the house than to be forced to go before the people with a flimsy
proposition which had defeat written across its face in raised letters.
We .Were pleased to see the attitude of President McVey when he was
told of the fate of this measure. He seems to share the same opinion as
was 'held by the friends of the institution who were leading the fight for
what they thought to be an honest measure. Perhaps he could have had
(more interest in this bond bill had he been consulted concerning its provi
sions. It is hardly probable that the head of any grea.t business or institu
tion would get whole heartedly behind any movement dealing with the
finances of' his business when such movement had originated wholly outside
of the business and without consulting anyone closely connected with the
business, and still that is what happened regarding this educational bond

measure standing on its own merits and
just in order lo camouflage one or two so
