is Keynote of
Veteran Speaker's


Colonel George W. Bain, veteran
platform speaker and best beloved of
Lexington's grand old men, who spoke
In chapel Tuesday on "An Optimistic
View of the War," stirred the students
to such enthusiasm and appreciative
applause as characterizes his audiences
Colonel Bain Is an ardent patriot, and has a thoro knowledge of war conditions. Altho he did
not omit mention of some German
atrocities which he deplored, a cherry
optimism was the keynote of his address, and he succeeded in Imparting
his wonderful spirit to his audience,
who frequently interrupted him by applause. His address, while dealing
with the war and its horrors, was not
prophefull of gloomy Cassandra-likcies so often heard from lecturers at
this time, but, brightened by his perennial wit, was an encouragement
and inspiration.

Colonel Bain said that he had lived
long, and had seen many terrible
things, among them slaves auctioned
at the block in Lexington; duels fought
in the surrounding blue grass region;
Kentucky mails flooded with lottery
tickets; and, out in Utah family Bibles
whose marriage pages resembled hotel
registers. The fact that he had seen
such things, and had lived to see a
time when they were unheard of, had
made him a confirmed optimist In his
old age, he said.
There are more pessimists in this
country now than ever before, according to Colonel Bain, and these are always predicting among other unpleasant things, that our nation will be
bankrupt at the end of the war. But
as the United States has loaned millions to the allies, on the condition
that the money be spent in this country, as that money is now in the country, and will also be repaid after the
war, there is no possibility of such a
condition, he declared.
"War is not an unmixed evil," he
said. "Before this conflict we had no
merchant murine. When this war is
over, our ships will carry goods to
every country of the globe, and the
commerce of the world will be carried
in American ships. The air service
will be perfected; some morning out
on the campus you will look up at a
speeding airship,

The House
of Representatives
Thursday, passed by an almost unani
mous vote the new State Tax Levy
law which will give the University
of Kentucky about $350,000 a year
and each of the State Normal Schools
$125,000 a year, based on an esti
mated tax duplicate of two billion dollars for 1918. Thru the efforts of Dr.
Frank L. McVey, the bill, under the
leadership of Arch L. Hamilton, ably
assisted by Representative Klair, of
Lexington, passed 73 to 10.

Thrift Card is given. On the card are
spaces for 16 stamps. When these are
filled the card plus 13 cents is exchanged for a

Each month 1 cent is added to the
amount to be given with the Thrift
Card for the Savings Stamp. In January it was 12 cents, in February 13

Dr. McVey was granted the privilege
of addressing

the House, sitting as a
committee of the whole for fifteen
minutes. Col. Chas. M. Harris, senator from Woodford, Jessamine and
Scott counties, said that Dr. McVey
handled the difficult situation in an
admirable manner. Senator Harris
commented on the good fortune of the
University and the State in having
such a man at the head of the University of Kentucky.

The $5.00 stamp must be attached to

The Kernel notes with pleasure the overwhelming
majority of votes cast in favor of the University of Kentucky appropriation bill by the lower house of the State
Legislature last Thursday. The bill passed: by the representatives provides an annual increase of $207,000,
which makes the annual aggregate appropriation from

the state about $350,000.

The significance of the passage of this bill is tremendous the act emphasizing the fact that the Commonwealth is waking up educationally. No clouds are longer in the sky for the University. The State of Kentucky, which has been woefully backward in supplying
educational advantages, is at last on her way to the


Speaking in behalf of the student-bod- y
of the University, the Kernel desires to extend sincere thanks to
the members of the lower house of the legislature for
adopting this measure, the final adoption of which by
the senate will place Kentucky in the enviable position
from which a
and niggardly policy in educational activities has so long withheld her.

With a promising cast under the able tutelage of
coaches well versed in the art of stagecraft, The Strollers, the dramatic organiation of the University, purposes to produce the most successful play in its history.
The leading parts of "Mice and Men," the 1918 play,
were assigned after rehearsal Monday night; the Kernel takes pleasure in congratulating those chosen, and
in commending the judgment used in the selection.
The work which has been accomplished so far, however, is in the minority compared with the work that
must yet be done before there is a completion of preparation. Nor will preparation for "Mice and Men" be
completed before every man and woman who has been
given a part in the play utilizes every bit of dramatic
force and energy which he or she possesses in each rehearsal. The Kernel is aware that the adage, "Practice
makes perfect," is commonplace, but, hoping that it will
not be censured for printing it, thinks it significance of
inestimable value to our dramatic organization.
For the benefit of those members of the student-bod- y
not thoroly acquainted with The Strollers, the
Kernel takes this opportunity of informing them that
that Universiy dramatic organiation is one of the most
outstanding of student activities embraced by the University. The organization is probably the only student
activity which can lay claim to the distinction of being
