The Kentucky Kernel





olumn of Personal Opinio
Editor, Summer Kernel


Dr. Frank L. McVey, for 23 years
president of the University, retired
rom that position Saturday.
The growth of the University during his tenure stands as testimony
of his achievements.
Compared to
this solid example of his worth,
flowery words of praise teem idle
And it has never been my policy to
Iran toward the flowery side.
President McVey has been a good
leader. During his time of office.
Uie University has grown in size, in
influence and in respectability.
He has shaped the University of
Kentucky to fit his definition that:
"A university is a place:
It is a spirit:
Men of learning.
A collection of books.
Laboratories where work in science
goes forward:
The source of teaching
And the beauties of Art and Lit-

The center where youth gathers
to learn.
It protects the tradition.
Honors the new and tests its value:
Believe in truth.

Protests against error and
Leads men by reason
Rather than by force."
During the four years I have been
at the University I have, on ocasion,
disagreed violently with the views
expressed by President McVey.
But I do know that he has done
one thing. He has presented a way
of life, a philosophy, that is admirable.

Whatever has been my opinion of
Presidents McVey's views on individual matters, I know that I
can find no better philosophy to
guide me in the Journalism profession than his admonition to:
Not being as pontifical in my
writings as the majorityof the editors of the country, I feel wholly
inadequate to pen the glorious and
moving words so apropos for a
Day column.
6o I decided to let my readers
have the real McCoy.
Youll find it on page 2 of today's
Kernel. It's the declaration of Independence.

Declaration Of Independence
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary
for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers
cf the earth, the separate and equal stations which the Laws
of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect
to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare
the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be
that all men are
created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty,
and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights,
governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just
towers from the consent of the governed. That whenever
any form of Government becomes destructive of these ends,
it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to
institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall
seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established
should not be changed for light and transient causes; and
accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are
more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to
right themselves by abolishing the form to which they are
accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design
to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right,
it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security

whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free People.
Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British
brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration andsettlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have
conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow
these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the
voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore,
acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation,
and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States

ought to be totally dissolved ; and that as Free and Independent States, they have the full power to levy War, conclude
Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do
all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of
right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with
a firm reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence,
we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and
our sacred Honor.
