The recent statement of Judge
Saul Streit of New York is a "67-- I
page harange" filled with misrepre-- !
scntation and designed to destroy
the reputation of UK. President
Herman L. Donovan said Tuesday
nisht at a meeting A the Univer-- !
sity's Fayette County Alumni Association.
Tiesident Donovan said UK and
Bradley University were made the
"whipping boys" of the collegiate
basketball scandal to force attention
away from racketeers and gamblers
in New York.
"The judge forgot that Madison
Square Garden was in his baili-- i
wick, and that place is one of the
rottenest gambling joints in the
world," he said. "All the culprits
were In Kentucky according to
Judge Streit."
As a result of Judge Streit's
charges. Dr. Donovan said that
sports writers, particularly those in
New York City, have been having a
great time. They have focused at
tention here instead of on New York
gamblers.
"And I think that's what it was
intended to do," he said. "
Donovan Questions Judge's Action
In his address, Dr. Donovan
charged that the judge acted im- ' properly in talking in chambers to
the three former UK players await- lng sentence before him.
"Rupp was not on trial," the UK
head said, "but he (the judge) put
him on trial and found him cniltv
and in a lengthy opinion. The Uni- versity was not on trial, but he put
it on trial and found it guilty."

For Library

i

An appropriation

of $35,000 from
income of the Haggin Fund has been
approved by the UK Board of Trustees for the purchase of library
books, research materials, and for
library alterations.
President H. L. Donovan told the
xecutive Committee of the Trustees
last week that the Margaret I. King
Library was admitted recently to
the Association of Research Libraries a one of the 45 outstanding
libraries in the nation.
"I understand from Dr. Lawrence
Thompson, director of libraries, and
members of the Library Committee,"
President Donovan said, "that there
"e weaknesses In our library that
should be strengthened immediately
that we may hold the ground that
we have gained through the recent
recognition that has been given our
library".
Twenty-fiv- e
thousand dollars of
the appropriated sum will be spent
on books and research materials.
Ten thousand dollars will be used to
restore cubicles which were removed
some years ago to accommodate
more books in the library.
Eah book purchased with Haggin
funds will bear a statement that it
was bought from income from the
Margaret Voorhies Haggin Trust
Fund. Mrs. Haggin established the
fund in memory of her husband, the
late James Ben Ali Haggin.

just whjft disciplinary action had

of the Wednesday night panty raids,

others had been told the same
thing.
At least 20 men were called into
the Dean's office Thursday after
their names had been taken by Dr.
Bennett Wall, director of the men's
residence halls.
President H. L. Donovan had not
yet met with Dean Kirwan or Dean

he had no statement to make.

Dean Holmes said.

they are university students or belong to other groups. Uncle Sam

Dean Kirwan and Dr. Wall followed from dormitory to dormitory,
identifying as many as possible of
the raiders.
At Boyd Hall, the front door was
open and about 100 men rushed in.
Continuing to Rose Street, the
raiders started into the Chi Omesa
House, but left when asked by the
housemother. They also gathered
around the Delta Delta Delta House,
but did not go in.
The raiders quickly left Rose

Asbury Arrested
Police arrested William Asbury, a
Scott Street Barracks resident, and
charged him with burglary and
breach of peace. The police paddy

narrowly missed hitting several onlookers who were in the street.
The raiders moved to Maxwell

yelling. "To the Theta House! On

At the Kappa Alpha Theta Hiue,
lights were put out as they approached, and all the girls stayed

KERNEL

KENTUCKY

The EJnal Summing Up

Wlien the time for the last edition arrives an
editor feels compelled to attempt to tie tip the
events of the year with a final editorial. This is our
attempt.
Any thought of the past ycaj, would have to include, sadly enough, the basketball scandal. In
many ways the scandal made the year a hard one
for lxth the University and the Kernel. For our
part, the scandal and related events, such as the
SGA petitions, probably caused us more headaches
and sleepless nights than all the other problems
put together.
But with the headaches came the realization that
the Kernel was really free. Never did the Administration attempt in any manner to censor the opinions
of the Kernel, although University officials were
often in complete disagreement with them. Perhaps
that statement is the greatest tribute we could pay
to the Administration, and certainly we could say
no less.
In case we have mistakenly given the impression
during the past year that we were against everything and we have been told, at times, that this
was the case we want to straighten the matter
out. It is impossible for any paper to fulfill its
obligation to the public without taking stands on
important matters and this cannot le done without
stepping on a few toes. We have stepped on toes,
granted, but in every case we did so only when we
felt tin? situation merited1 such action. Editorials of
praise are soon forgotten while those finding fault
are rememlered longer and so we became the

by the Kernel really accomplished their purpose.
anti-boy- s.

As with any institution, the University has many
faults, but these faults while they should be brought
to light so that corrective steps can lie taken,
should not lie allow ed to distort the w hole picture.
We do not feel that we have leen guilty of this at
'
any time.

Our recommendations for the future are about
the same as those we've offered in the past and
stress one point: the acceptance of students as responsible members of tin.- University community.
First and foremost in our recommendations is the
building of a stronger SGA. This will have to

The vast open vault on the first floor of the library
could certainly serve a letter purpose than a place

perhaps tobacco could lx raised for those librarians
who chew in the seclusion of their closets. Then too,
the place would make an excellent central heating

and graduate students assembled here, hot air
could be gathered in a few minutes and piped to
all class rooms (with a pipe line to the School of

to feed the plant Essence of Manure, but instead of
receiving this botanical delicacy graciously, the
bite out of the stulittle spring took a child-siz- e
dent's finger.
For 30 minutes thereafter Eucsef 13 waved contentedly, aixl grew a full inch the next day.
This gave the professors reason to think that the
proper food for Eucsef 13 was indeed blood, and
was a hereditary craving handed down by one or
more of its carnivorous ancestors.
But they were soon to notice that just blood
alone was not enough, nor was the flesh of. uneducated animals satisfactory. When the flesh of
an imported orangutan from the South Pacific was
refused by Eucsef 13, they knew that human flesh
was the last resort, if they were to continue their
observation of the growth of this new species of
plant-food-

They figured out that the demand would be
relatively small now that it was a mere infant
probably not more than a finger a week.
The procurement of these fingers was simple.

IT'S TIME
TO SEE TOM
FOR A

Nights until two and three
anil four in the morning spent in
fltjk
the Kernel office, putting out the
paper, studying, but mostly talking.
"Shaky" Mansfield, w ho never went to bed. And
his car (?) Mainline, who performed all the odd
jobs such as going to the engravers and going out
for sandwiches and coffee.
"Troubles" Wilborn, who always cried on Tuesday nights, because there wasn't going to be anything to put in the paper for Friday w hether there
were two galleys of type or two hundred.
Bonnie Butler, who kept us informed on flying
saucers, and always put little things on the Kernel
like his fescue
bulletin board
SGA and our fight with Bob Smith over tlie
petitions.
Fighting with the printers every Thursday. And
the headlines still came out differently from the
way they went down.
Printers note: We wanted something in the
Kernel correct.
All the professors who wanted their pet news to
be sure and get in the paper, because it was the
"biggest thing to ever hit this campus."
The basketball scandals who could ever forget.
Chuck Tilley and his cliche connissenrs, who
thought news was only something in the way of the
sports page.
Don Armstrong, and his "summer edition" of the
Kentuckian. And his favorite method of starting a
sentence, "Boy, when I get married this summer."
Waiting until 2 a.m. on Wednesdays for Cherry
to draw the editorial cartoon.
The week after Judge Streit's attack, when every-Ixxl- y
"misquoted" us.
And well always remember that this seemed to
us just about the swellest and best bunch of guys
and gals ever assembled in one place that bunch
at the Kernel.
In closing, it might be well to warn freshmen,
sophomores, and juniors. Butler has threatened to
w rite a column, probably to be called the "Smudge-pot.- "

The teachers simply asked healthy students in their
classes to donate one of their fingers to the cause
in return for receiving an "A" in the course. The
supply was soon far surpassing the demand.
But as the supply increased, so did the demand
for nourishment on the part of Eucsef 13. Within
a few months it lxcame impractical for them to
bother with just fingers, since the plants capacity
was up to 50 fingers a day, and increasing daily.
In a lengthy meeting of the faculty of the college,
they debated as to which was the most important
thing to the University the students themselves or
the wealth of know ledge that would be gained from
the furthur study of Eucsef 13.
The decision was that since the students had already paid their tuition they were of little good
financially to the University unless they became
wealthy later on in life and donated money to the
University.
This was highly improbable due to the kind of
education they were getting in the first place. So
science was to benefit.
Little did the professors realize that the students,
or at least the greater majority of them, were not
w illing to become martyrs to science or any other
offspring of science.
Most of the male students were in school in order
to keep from being an experiment in scientific warfare over on some oriental peninsula.
There were a few of them w ho had come to col- lege for an education. And it was to this chosen
few that an announcement was directed in the
following week's Kernel.
The announcement went to the affect that any
and all male students who would
