ruled that a final decision on the
matter wouldn't be made until after
the committee in charge of the Di- rectory had submitted a cost estimate to the Assembly.
Last year's Directory cost the Association $700. This was just half
the $1400 that was originally appropriated for the purpose. Jess Gard
ner, chairman of the Directory com- mittee at the time, said the savings
was made posible by printing the

method than letter-prewhich had been used in former
years.
The ciud elected to devote next
week's meeting time to arranging
the information cards for the directory In alphabetical order. Law-so- n
noted that this would make the
work easier for the typists and
bhould help speed up the publication
date for the booklet.
Treasurer Henry Maeser reported
that the Association has an accumu- nt

ss

lated balance of $9,712.55 which includes student fees from last June.
He anticipated that about $5400 will
be added to the fund from this semester's receipts.
Maeser said he would present a
tentative budget for this year after
the current student fees have been
credited to the SGA account and
after he has received xeports from
the various committees on their
proposed expenditures,
"All organizations that have
ceived appropriation from SGA in
the past should turn their requests
for this year over to me before next

Lawson said he had spoken to Dr.
Bennett H. Wall, director, of the
men's dormitories, and said they had
arranged to have SGA's Judiciary
Committee handle all disciplinary
problems arising from the men's
dorms.
The SGA president announced
that the Assembly may take over
the editing and printing of the K- Book. Lawson said he had spoken to
Dr. Lysle W. Croft, director of the
Personnel Office, and said thst Croft
expressed extreme dissatisfaction
with the way the booklet was edited
this past year.
If the Assembly does take charge
of putting out the Informational
booklet for freshman, Lawson said,
the group will appoint an editor and
a supervisor to handle the actual
details.
The only financial action by the
Assembly was the passing of a $150
appropriation for the annual Col
lege Night which will be held Oct. 3
in the Student Union.

UK Is Losing Valuable Men

Because Of Law Faculty Par
And High Salaries Elsewhere
One of the pates barring UK progress was opened
wide last week wlien the Hoard of Trustees voted
in favor of a lxmd issue to finance eight fraternity
houses and a graduate dormitory. Buildings alone,
however, will not insure UK's future.
In the past year the University has lost 38 faculty
members who resigned to accept Ixtter paying jobs
elsewhere in private business, in governmental
service, and at other universities. The pay hike for
these
men ranged from S4(X) in some cases
io almofi $7,000 in one or two other instances. A
great many of those who resigned were men of
(established academic reputation and their loss will
be felt sorely.
President Donovan, in his report to the Board of
Trustees, presented another set of figures that might
well make Hentuckians ashamed and apprehensive
for the future of their University. Salaries of the
four pay grades instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, and professor were compared
ith the salaries for the same grades at a large
state university.
Tlie smallest difference was found on tlie instructor level. Here the other school paid only $400
more than UK. For the three higlier grades the
discrepancy became more pronounced, ranging
from $1,200 to $1,500 higher at tlie other institution.

Small wonder then

that other schools look to

Ken-

tucky when tltcy need faculty replacements.
It's true that UK is in drastic need of additional
housing and classroom space, particularly if the
University's enrollment is on the upswing as all reports seem to indicate. Tlie need for higher teacher
salaries is also severe, for we can hardly hope to
build UK into a truly great university if our better
faculty memlers are lured away from tlie campus
jobs elsewliere.

With one exception all the current building and
a great deal of that which has gone on in the past
and hasn't cost the tax
lias lieen
payers of Kentucky a penny. The exception was the
new men's dormitory. The state was required to
pnt up $500,000 for this building so tlie school could
obtain a federal loan for the balance of tlie construction cost.
Tlie major question of wliere extra money for
higher teacher salaries is coming from can be
answered very concisely a state sales tax. Such a
tax is just alxiut the only avenue for increasing state
funds that we have left.
No, Kentucky cannot lie a greater state without a
greater state University . . . and we cannot have a
greater state University without an adequate and
capable faculty.

Columnist Predicts A Change
Regardless Of Election Winner
By TOM WILBORX
Former Kernel Managing F.ditor

Xo matter who's elected Eisenhower or Steventhe November election will cause a major

son

change in our federal government.
For the first time in the memory of most college
students, a vote for tlie party in power will not be
a vote for the occupant of the White House. The
President is retiring, an act that was once common but that hasn't lieen repeated since Coolidge
stepped down in 192S.
A look at the records of the six men in this
century who have moved into the White House
behind jnen of their own part)' shows that they
Iiave .all effected changes many of them of major
significance.
Of course, radical changes in government seldom
occur while the same party is in power. The conservative xeign of tlie twenties Was initiated when
Republicans took over from the Democrats in 1920.
Tlie switch back to a lilieral government took place
when the electorate put in Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Three of these presidents who succeeded men of
their own party Taft, Harding, and Hoover were
ore
hand picked by tlieir predecessors the other
Roosevelt, Coolidge, and Truman were
elected vice presidents on the same platform and iu
the same elections as their predecessors.
Teddy Joosevelt, installed as president wh
