Arrangements have been made
for a series of intercollegiate debates between summer session students of the University and Berea
Tentative debates have
been scheduled for August 13, one
of which will be held in Berea and
the other of that date Is to be
staged in Lexington.
Debating during the summer
school is not a regular feature In
Kentucky, but it is believed that
much Interest will be aroused by
this forensic endeavor.
William Rldgeley Pierce, of Mott,
S. D., Is the University's outstanding man in the contests and much
Is expected to him. His ability as a
debater is exceptional.
University freshman, will
probably see action as a member of
the school's team, as will William
Dysard, who besides being an able
debater, Is out for football.
Bcrea's trio will consist of Escum
Moore andParls Ballou, debaters of
several years' experience. Berea's
third man will probably be a more
experienced man than either of the
two above mentioned.
The subject to be argued Is one of
great, Interest at this time. It is:
"Resolved that the government
should own and operated hydroelectric power sites."

Mr. Andrew C. Wallace, recently

One of the best known fables spread since the
days before the Civil War Is the story of the beautiful courtesy and Chesterfield manners of the Southern gentleman. Through the years this belief has
flourished, even In the South. Northerners nre greatly surprised to find that all young men from Kentucky, or Virginia, or Tennessee are not perfect
models of the old time hero who bowed from the
waist with a fitting remark upon introduction.
Without going Into a prolonged discussion of what
has come over this modern generation, we can admit
that there has been a very noticeable change In the
manners of the young man as well as a new defiance
in the young woman of today. Nor do we regret all
this, for it has meant freedom and truth from the
bondage of many useless old conventions. However,
at our own University some may sigh for the old
days when a man lifted his hat to a lady, or at least
allowed her room to walk on the sidewalks instead of
jostling and pushing her out onto the grass or road.
One reason for the decline in manners at the University is the lowering of the estimation in which
were once held. Time and again the remark
is made by the Kentucky man student that "Co-ed- s
'don't ask for any respect, so why should we give it.
They don't expect or deserve and special courtesy
from the boys they date and have classes with." If
this is true, then it is the
who is at fault, but
there is much proof that these very girls who rush
ahead to open the door and stand while the boys
take all the available chairs at the sorority house,
often wish for the respect accorded their older sisters
in bygone days.

Music, Stage and Screen

William Howard Tnlft, chief Justice of the United
States Supreme Court. In n recent address before his
college fraternity convention, voiced the opinion that
extra cunicular nctlvltlcs arp carried to great extremes In the schools nnd that they waste n great deal
of time and money. The chief Justice believes that
"the war played havoc with a great many conceptions
and we haven't gotten over It yet." He also regrets
the misuse of scholastic opportunities ns practiced by
many students today.
The benefit derived from extra currlculnr activities
Is open to debate, but when n man of the experience
and ability of Chief Justice Tnft voices a contrary
opinion people arc inclined to listen. Some of the
most outstanding objections raised against these
activities arc that the regular curriculum school work
Is overlooked, that the expenditures Involved are excessive, that cliques tend to develop, and that the
same crowd of students belong to all the activities
leaving more timid souls with no chance to belong.
Then again, advocates of extra currlcular activities
argue that the activities tend to develop leadership,
citizenship, nnd physical efficiency.
The question may never be satisfactorily settled,

Dark pines
Huddled on a mountain top
Against the gray sky
Of a winter twilight
Are like tattered soldiers
Over a dying campfire.
Who treads a road of Jagged stone
May find therein a diamond set;
Who wades the slough with heavy groan

As you hobble on.
