Jj

Again the University of Kentucky
campus resounded to the hustle and
' bustle, of student life Tuesday morning, as all classes were resumed after one of the longest Christmas holidays cvey enjoyed by the students.
Since Sunday trains from all parts
of the state were packed with crowds
of students returning to resume their
college life and Tuesday morning
found but few stragglers absent from
classes.
Tuesday morning found the freshman once more firmly established in
his infinitesimal place at the bottom
of college life. No longer can he
strut proudly along the campus walk;
no longer can he sport his new Stetson or Berg, for with the resumption
of school, freshman rules went into
effect and the holiday skypiece is now
replaced by the blue and white cap
of freshmanship.
With the joy of returning to their
college activities and the pleasure of
greeting returned friends, the happiness of the student body is complete save one shadow which mars
the otherwise perfect happiness. And
in this instance the fly in the ointment is the fear of impending examinations, now but two weeks off. Instructors greeted their first classes
with friendly smiles and with hearty
exams were
assurances that
just around the corner, urging them
to take counsel and prepare in earnest for them.
Midyear examinations are sheduled
to begin Friday, January 23 and to
continue Saturday and throughout
the following week. Registration and
classification will be held Monday,
February 2 and classes will be resumed for the second semester on
Tuesday. In anticipation of the large
registration, the university authorities are arranging for early registraDue antion and classification.

are urged to turn in requests for exemption's from such penalty to the
committee on scolarship and attendance at once. The governing rules

COLLEGE GIRLS
ARE BEST WIVES
Divorce Almost Negligible Among College

Women
"Men, choose your wives from
among the girls in schools and keep
out of divorce courts. Collego ro- mances seldom end fatally."
The world has the word from Miss
Agnes Husband, dean of women at
Kansas University, for the above
statements and she has the proof to
back up the statement. Of all the
Kansas University marriages, commencing with the founding of the in- Btitution down to the present, there
has been only one divorce. Miss Husband uccounts for this by saying that
college men and women have not
only a selected group from which to
choose, but have better opportunities
for knowing one another and cun
make more intelligent choices.

Delays Addition to New

Chemistry
Building

All bids for the construction of the
addition to the new chemistry build
ing at the university were rejected by
the executive committee of the board
of trustees at their January meeting
The bids greatly exceeded the amount
of money on hand for the purpose
of completing the addition, was the
reason given for their rejection.
Judge R. C. Stoll, Senator H. M
Frohman and Dr. Frank L. McVcy
comprised the committee appointed to
go over the plans with the architect,
with the object of suggesting changes
that will bring the cost of the proposed addition within the limits of
the amount of money in the treasury
available for that purpose.
All
checks sent in by the contractors as
guarantee of their good faith were
mailed back to them with the notice
of rejection.
Receipt of a gift of $500 from Prof.
Carol Sax, head of the department of
Art, to be applied to the fund maintained for the purpose of bringing
speakers to the university for the
convocations was also acknowledged
by the executive committee.
The only other business transacted
by the board was routine and details
of activities of the university.
Those present were: Judge Stoll,
Senator Frohman, R. G. Gordon, of
Louisville,
and

Pictures of the Notre
Stanford football game in Pasadena, California, were transmitted by
the "Telepix" to Chicago and New
York for printing in the formal inauguration of the new machine.
"Transmission of pictures through
an instrument known as Telepix,
telegraph pictures," have been demonstrated as practicable," says the Chicago Tribune, which is joint owner
with the New York Daily News, of
the process.
The new machine will both send
nnd receive pictures by telegraphic
dots and dashes, requiring from an
hour to 75 minutes to transmit an ordinary photograph. The owners say
that the Telepix is easier to operate
than a five tube radio set and takes
up less room. Only bad weather interrupting the telegraphic facilities
can incapacitate the machine.
The sending operutor fixes to a
drum of copper a halftone plate made
from a photograph. Where each of
the thousands of dots appear on the
plate a metal contact is established.
On the receiving machine the transmitted dots are recorded on chemically impregnated paper fastened to a
similar drum. The machine telegraphs 40 dots a second.

UNIVERSITY GIRL IS CHAMPION

Breathitt

Reforestation work has been started on the lands known as Robinson
tract, according to W. E. Jackson,
State Forester, appointed by Clell
Coleman, Commissioner
of Agriculture. The lands, which are located
in Breathitt county, were donated to
the university by the E. O. Robinson
Mountain Fund, as a
Station at Quicksand. This new station is expected to serve the needs
of eastern Kentucky.
Mr. Jackson, in speaking of the
forestry work said, "I am working in
cooperation with Dean Thomas P.

at Lexington.

EXTRA
Miss Mary Graham Williams
In a milking contest at the recent
"Little International" Stock Show at
the University of Kentucky, Miss
Mary Graham Williams defeated all
comers and carried off the honor of
being Kentucky's champion milkmaid.
She displayed the best "method and
form" in milking, according to Judge
John Nutter, superintendent of the
Experiment Station's dairy herd.
Miss
Williams got the greatest
amount of milk in three minutes of
any of the .contestants.
Miss Williams is farm born and
reader, her home being on a farm
near Paris. She has done the family milking for several years and is
a lover of livestock and of outdoor
life. She is a popular member of
the freshman class in the college of
Agriculture and is a pledge to the
Omega Rho sorority.
"The modern college girl is better
and more capable than the college
girl of a few years ago. I believe
thoroughly in the modern young person. There is much talk about the
fast set but the young folks are living no faster than the older ones.
Older people are spending more money, living more extravagantly, and
setting an example which they cannot blame the younger ones for following."

Night
The Christmns vacation meant very
little to the Wildcats ns far as rest
goes. They were given stiff workouts
by Coach Clarence Applegran during
the holidays.
The 'cats seemed to
be somewhat overworked by consistent practice and were unable to take
the long end of the count in either of
the four games which they played
during the holidays.
The Felines meet their first Southern Conference opponent this season
tonight in the new gymnasium, when
they hook up with the basketeers

from the University of Mississippi.
That institution is reported to have
a good team and will be one of the
strongest contenders for the conference title.
Although the Wildcats
have been unable to go well against
northern teams, it is expected that
they will be in good form when they
meet the teams which compose the
S. I. C.
The Wildcats will meet the Georgetown Tigers tomorrow night and this
contest will probably have considerable bearing on the state championship.

Had Been In III Health
Miss Dunn had been in ill health
for many years and was sick throughout the Christmas holidays. She had
decided to have an operation Monday and this morning came to the
University to withdraw, so as to afford her opportunity to rest before
having the operation. She left the
registrar's office about 8:45 and went
to her room, telling her aunt as she
wont upstairs not to disturb her until 2 o'clock because she wanted to
rest until that time when she would
go to a show with a young man.
Shortly afterwards Miss Ballard was
called to the room of her niece who
told her aunt that she had taken
Btrychniue.
Her aunt asked her why
she had done it and she replied that
it would not hurt her and was good
for her heart.
Rushed to Hospital
Miss Ballard called the ambulance
and tho patient was takon to tho
hospital. A transfusion was necessary and Miss Ballard gave a pint
of her blood in an effort to save the
life of her nieco.
