Hupp" Suggests
Male, Female

Cheering Sections
A mass cheering section for men
and one for women was proposed
by Coach Adolph Rupp in a recent
letter to Omicron Delta Kappa,
leadership honorary.
Coach Rupp asked the honorary
to initiate n plan whereby 1,000
male students would come to games
nnd sit in a body. The cheering
group would sit in a reserved nrea.
A similar section of "from 750

would, nccording
to 1.000"
to the proposal, sit in another reserved nrea.
The UK basketball coach stated
that he . had proposed the idea
"several years ago." He believed
two such gorups would form a
co-e- ds

regular, effective cheering section
that "could be taught new cheers
and new pep songs."
Coach Rupp suggested the name
"Thundering Thousand" for the
male section, and "The Leather-Lunge- d
Ladies" as. a title for the
women's cheering group.
would be asked to
aid ODK in organizing the groups.
The honorary voted to approve
Rupp's idea and appointed a committee to study methods of forming either a mixed or single cheering group.

Dr. K. O. Lange, head of the
Aeronautical Research Laboratory,
recently submitted to the Wright
Air Development Center at Wright
Patterson Air Force Base, the UK
bid of $9,400 for one of Wright
Patterson's important projects. The
contract, which was bid on by a
number of other schools also, was
awarded to UK and signed Nov. 17
by Dr. Merl Baker, director of the
Research Foundation here.
Wright Patterson has been doing
research on the effect on aircraft
instruments and parts in relation
to vibrations in air and changes
in the weather.
The work of the University will
be to take the research provided by
Wright Patterson and compile it
and put it on IBM cards which
will aid in accuracy and speed of
handling the information.
Professor Staley Adams and
Keith Marshall of the Engineering
College will be in charge of the
project and 10 junior engineering
students will be chosen on the basis
of previous scholarship to help
with the research. Approximately
$6,000 will be paid out to students.

The project will be started on
Dec. 1 and must be completed on
or before June 1, 1956.

THE KENTUCKY KERNEL, Friday. Ded 2. 1935
Little man on campus

Tag Sa le s
Omicron Delta Kappa' would do well if it
made this fall the last time that it sponsored
the "tag sales."
Originally planned to loost student spirit,
as well as to raise funds for the honorary,
the ODK tags have produced money within
recent years but have become less and less
popular with the student Ixxly.

Few students wear the diamond-shapetags before the football games. In fact, it is
rare indeed to find anybody displaying an
ODK tag on their person. The little cards
are sold, in most cases, and forgotten.
This is not the best situation by any means
for a seemingly worthwhile project. If the
tags do not boost UK spirit, then why sell
them? Going even further one wonders why
people buy them.
This year has showed a marked decrease
in fraternity interest in selling ODK tags.
of campus
Roughly only about
fraternities actively participated in selling
In most cases this decline of interest is

one-thir- d

attributed to the charge of "buying a trophy."
This charge may or may not be true, but
nevertheless it is a bad thing when a trophy
is not considered completely ctmipctitive.
ODK has never required that the Greeks
turn in all of their money taken in the same
week that the organization gains it. Thus a
group that has appeared "out of the race"
at the beginning of the selling season may,
by turning in a huge last week return, win
the trophy.
Sororities have displayed steadier interest
in the sales throughout the years, but this
year competition in this area has lagged considerably.
ODK has recognized the problem, and in
their last meeting members agreed to look
into the possibility of finding another worthwhile method of raising funds for its many
campus projects.
Tag sales appear to be a stagnating item;
certainly they should not be associated with
a responsible organization like Omicron
Delta Kappa.

No Frats
A recent South Carolina Baptist Convention adopted a resolution asking the Hoard
of Trustees of Furman University, a
school, to abolish fraternities at

that institution.
Fraternities were accused of being "a gigantic example of arrested development", as
well as being advocates of drinking and
dancing. Student representatives of Furman
fraternities, however, did not have the
of answering such charges.
Discussion about the issue had been at
fever pitch in many areas throughout Soutli
Carolina after mimeographed pamphlets attacking social fraternities at Furman were
circulated among ministers this summer.
The Greek situation at Furman appears
dark at the present time, and the outcome
may well be a heavy blow to the fraternity
systems in hundreds of colleges.
Students at the University of Kentucky,
where the fraternity program is a
progressive part of the campus,
easily can see the implications of the move
on at Furman. The accused, it appears, is
not being permitted to face its accuser.




UK fraternities have proved their merit
to the campus years ago, as has the entire
fraternity system in the United States. Not
only do they teach the real meaning of the
word "brotherhood," but they also sponsor a
major portion of approved campus social

The Kentucky Kernel staunchly backs the
Furman Hornet, Furman's campus newspaper, in its defense of the Greek system. It
would be an unwise move, in every respect,
for the South Carolina institution to abolish
fraternities especially since their "trial"' was
not a fair one.

A Kernel editorial appearing in the Sep-

tember 30 issue accused the Lexington
Herald-Leade- r
of unfavorable news play
given students locally.
The Kernel hypothesized the motives of
the Herald-Leade- r
entirely without proof.
No malice was intended then or now. and
the Kernel apologizes for the misrepresentation given by the editorial.

Debate Money
UK has' one of the top debate teams in the country. It also
has one of the most poorly financed teams in the country. The
University contributes absolutely nothing to the support of the
The group is financed by SGA, private contributions, and
ODK. Professor Gifford Blyton, coach of the team, is forced to
beg for funds to continue his program. This is ridiculous, particularly since Kentucky ranks among the top ten in the country.
A high ranking is not an easy thing to achieve when you are
competing against schools like Harvard, which Kentucky defeated twice last year, Notre Dame, and Army.

Other schools generously support their debate teams. Notre
Dame annually budgets close to $10,000 for the team. Even
neighboring Georgetown College, as small as it is, gives $1,600
a year to debate.
This year Kentucky must make several trips to defend the
titles they won plus a trip to Atlanta for the southern regional
and a possible junket to New York for the West Point national
tournament. Prof. Blyton has raised $1,600, approximately $400
under what he really needs- to pay all expenses. He has no idea
where the other money will come.
Athletics is a favorite whipping boy.' It has money while the

Short Shift
The "Thundering Thousand" and "Leather-Lunge- d
Ladies" suggested by Rupp as cheering sections show, just how much student
support means to the coach and the team.
The titles may be humorous, but the idea is
not one to be laughed out. UK needs a dee
cheering body.

Good newspapers, regardless of their type,
are welcome the world over. Thus the

Those students who scoff at campus activities and the people that participate in them
seldom realize their value in getting a good
job after college.

It's good to see a campus organization
achieve recognition. The Kernel congratulates aPnhellenic and its president, Sharon
Miller, for being named the top- - Pan-He- l
group in the country.

Doesn't it seem pathetic that the Young
Democratic Club and Young Republican
Club are virtually put in mothballs after
each big election? Maybe these organizations shoulcj realize the value of regular
meetings especially since almost every UK
student is now of "voting age."

The mass exodus of student drivers during
holidays has caused many universities to let
students out at noon of the day the holidays
begin. UK did not follow' this wise procedure during the recent Thanksgiving vacation. Surely a few missed classes are nut

Back Talk

Dear Sir:
Last night the program of the Freshman Y consisted of a
panel to inform us of how the Student Government Association
is set up. This panel was composed of three members of the
SGA and one representative from each of the two campus
parties. The panel was very informative, but, one thing I
learned is so astonishing that I feel all freshmen should know

about it.
asked the representative from the Constitutionalist Party
what made up the membership ofdiis party. His answer was
that the party is made up entirely of (.reeks and that none of
the members nor any of the candidates for election are Independents. Yet. the representative tried to say that the party
represented the whole campus. I fail to see how any party can
represent the student body when it excludes the majority of the
student body from its membership.
The restriction ol membership also seems very undemocratic.
The other party has both Creeks and Independents in its membership. I. as well as other Freshmen, want to know why the
Independents are excluded from the Constitutionalist Party.
