Intramurals Do Not Recieve

Academic Freedom
Or Who lias Fallen
For Communist Line

The Support They Deserve
When the University gave its answer to the recent scandals that blackened Kentucky's sports,
President Herman Donovan issued the following
policy statement:
"If there is anything we are doing that we
shouldn't, I would be glad to know and we will
make whatever changes that are necessary."
Certainly the President has not been answered
with silence. Those outspoken critics of "over
emphasis", ltoth within the University and on the
outside, have had their say in the matter.
We bVlieve the athletic setup holds one very
good solution to the problem. The real trouble with
sports at present is that too many watch athletics,
and not enough of us participate. If we take the
necessary steps to give the opportunity for more
people to take part in sports, the problem w ill solve

Within the University, intramurals give the answer to the problem of mis placed emphasis. Opbasis and embracing alerating on a
most every popular sport, the intramural program
has gotten wonderful student response. But in
spite of this student response to the intramural
program, funds and space for carrying out the program are not lx'ing furnished in adequate portions
by the University.
An examination of the backing that intramurals
actually are getting at present shows extensive
neglect. No department of the University regularly
contributes to the upkeep of intramurals in terms
of money. Although the director is a member of
the Physical Education Department, intramurals
are not included in the P.E. budget. And though
intramurals constitute an important phase of athletics, the Athletic Department has no provision for
the support of the
The money that runs intramurals comes directly
from the pockets of the men and women who participate. State and University funds finance the
Physical Education Department, including the registration fees paid by the students. The Athletic
Department supports itself through gate receipts
and a portion of
registration funds, which
again come from the students. For the intramural
participants to pay twice for athletics seems unnecessary.

Dart Peak Honored
Bart N. Peak, executive secretary of the University YMCA and Fayette County representative
to the state legislature, will be the guest of honor
Thursday night at a YMCA sponsored testimonial
Xo one deserves such an honor more than Mr.
Peak. He has served UK students for 30 years.
While serving his first term in the state legislature, Mr. Peak became known as one of the few
representatives who read every bill. He also was
present at every session.
Mr. Peak's long devotion to the welfare of UK
students, his achievements as an individual, and his
sen ice to his state and his country well merit honor
and respect.

If the student must put up these entrance fees
to take part in intramurals, he is naturally discouraged. To get an expanded program, it would be
folly to increase the required expense on the student's part. The money has to come from some
other source.
There has been some indication that the Athletic
Department may supplement intramural funds. We
feel that this would be the best available solution,
because athletics should assume the responsibility
of taking care of every student desiring to participate, and not just a talented few.
Just why should intramurals be expanded? The
reasons are these: (1) students, especially
need easily obtained athletic outlets; (2)
the national situation demands its men and women
to be in good physical condition; and (3) athletics
can promote high standards of competition and develop leadership.
Response to intramurals definitely warrants attention. In reports to the University for both men
and women, it has been shown that intramurals
already attract large segments of the student body.
Total participation figures estimate over 3000 for
men and S50 for the women.




one-side- d


upper-classme- n,

Facilities for intramurals are already crowded to
the breaking point. One field must suffice for all
of the football and softball played by the men. It
has been trampled until it is void of grass, and is
reaching the hardness of a roadbed. The women
use another field, rutted by car tracks, and flooded
by rain, which is also leing used for varsity football practice. Other facilities are just as inadequate.
Our purpose is not criticism, but is meant to
motivate the needed response from those who have
the power to meet an evident shortcoming in athletic emphasis.

Admittedly, the futures of the majority of University students will not be drastically altered by
this election. But those who fail to Vote will be
showing once again that regardless of their loud
talk, they care very little whether or not students
have a real voice in the operation of the University.
The Student Union Board plays a large part in
making the program of the SUB, one of the few
campus buildings of tangible benefit to every student. It is responsible for any number of
activities and with proper student support
could sponsor many more.


The Student Union Board deserves your vote not
only because of the good job it has done in the past,
but even more so for what it can do in the future
with your support.






Little Unbalanced

The Knappsack By Paul Knapp

Culture Has Caused Mankind
To Forget Finer Things Of Life
This thing called culture has caused man to
neglect some of the finer things of life, namely the
art of back scratching.
Men in general will admit that there is no feeling in heaven or on earth equally as satisfying as
having your back scratched properly.
Women will not admit their own feelings on the
subject in public. It is not, shall we say, socially
acceptable. Back scratching among that sex has
been replaced by back biting, which is an accepted
social grace.
Just for the sake of simplicity,
let us take for granted that all us
human beings derive pleasure
from having our back scratched
I stress this word properly because there are so few individuals who are qualified at this
important, relaxing and soothing pastime.
Women are not necessarily more efficient than
men but are nevertheless better equipped with the
utensile for doing the job. I'm speaking of course
of long finger nails.
There is another psychological advantage that
women have over men. It seems that a woman delights in seeing a man squirm and groan in ecstacy
just from the plying of her fingers around his backbone. This puts hiin under her thumb more than
physically. While she has him in this pleasureful
state of mind she can get whatever she wants from
a new hat to his whole paycheck. This, of course,
only refers to married couples.
Among the unweded the active participant can
gain nothing more than broken fingernails and the


thanks of the recipient. It has been
rumored that the cloest way to a man's heart is not
through his stomach, but therough his well scratched back.
Men do not like to scratch other men's backs.
And if one is finally coaxed into doing the deed,
he invariably starts carrying on some insipid conversation during the action, and will not let the receiver lavish in his pleasure.
Another manly fault is
