* From Bikes To Books
Looking a bit incongruous as they
mount their vehicles, teams of girls
from University sororities and residence halls will climb aboard their
tricycles tonight and, as the starter's gun goes off, so will they, thereby
beginning the third annual Little Kentucky Derby.
The derby has grown from a complete question mark in the minds of
its enthusiastic planners in 1956, a
moderate success in its inaugural year
in 1957 and an overwhelmingly successful weekend last year to the
stature its original organizers hoped
it would have: a truly
event, providing entertainment and
competition for every student and
scholarships for prospective students.
After the expenses and profits from
the first derby had been reckoned,
enough money was left over to provide two $100 scholarships; last year,
as its organization became more integrated and its potentialities more
recognized by both sponsors and
participants, profits increased to provide enough funds for 11 scholarships. This year the Steering Committee has set a profit of $5,000 as its
goal, and with the support of the
campus there is no reason why it
should not be reached.
Considering the low cost per student for attending all the derby's dif
all-camp-

us

ferent events, plus the entertainment
and the competition of the concert
and the race, the derby amounts to
a recreational bargain not equalled at
any other time during the year.
But above and beyond the benefits
accruing to the participants and spectators are those made possible by
the profits from the various derby
events. They provide scholarships
which, although not enough in themselves to pay a student's University
expenses, will quite possibly mean the
difference between coming to school
here or going to a smaller school
with fewer opportunities and facilities for getting a good education.
Because of its own nature as entertainment, and because of the nature of the assistance it provides for
recipients of its scholarships, the
derby deserves the support of everyone within the University community,
students and faculty alike. We hope
the Coliseum will be packed at the
Debutante Stakes tonight and again
tomorrow night for the concert by
Ralph Flanagan and the Crew Cuts.
And tomorrow afternoon, when
considering whether to go to the
Little Kentucky Derby itself, we hope
you will remember that because of
those bikes, someone will be given
access to books. Just how many
"someoncs" depends entirely on you.- -

'Stylusistic' Poetry
To The Editor:

Congratulations to Mr. Cawood on
his literary masterpiece emphasizing
the campus literary production,
Stylus. Mais oui, Stylus is intellectual
and modern and nonsensical and
grammatically rebellious and all. For
only the intellectuals can comprehend
the deepest meaning of such terms as
blue fruit that sighs and rocks that
ache. To this mass of intellectual neb-bis- h
I am contributing my efforts as
a poet:
The river lily's sterile sap is in my ear
And lo, the stones shiver.
The stench of the fishmonger
Is effervescent.

$100,000 'Plaything'

To The Editor:
What sort of a Rube Goldberg
creation has the University decided
it needs now? It was bad enough
that $850,000 which could have been

was spent for a white elephant named
Spindletop, but $100,000 for a pedestrian crossing seems ridiculous.
If the crossing were designed to replace the safety islands now provided
at the crossing leading from the
dorms to the area in front of Alumni
Gymnasium, the project might conceivably be worthwhile; however, I
seriously doubt that many girls will
walk two blocks to an approach to
the overpass, wander around for a
mile or so trying to get off it, and
then walk another two blocks down
the approach. They will, no doubt,
continue to cross Euclid at the peril
of their lives, and the University's
newcst plaything will remain unused

m. Wednesday it was evident
that the Students' Party era in student
government had come to an end. The
only bright spot in the SP picture was
the narrow victory the party's three Arts
and Sciences candidates achieved.
So now Taylor Jones moves into the
position Pete Perlman has held this year.
What kind of president will Jones be?
He'll be interesting, to say the least. He
won't be as progressive as Perlman, but
he has the ability to be vigorous.
It will be interesting to see how he will
get along with his assembly. The "checks
and balances" system will be in full operation by September.
By 8 p.

What about the parties? Jones is the
unquestioned high priest of his party.
Any attempt to dispute his leadership of
the party won't get off the ground. The
Students' Party will go through some
changes itself. The people who will have
weight in party matters next year will
probably be ''newcomers" to the campus
political scene. Watch for an attempt to
liberalize the party by next fall.
For swme reason the SP began moving more to the right in the last year.
Whatever the reason, it didn't work.. The
party took its big rightward step when
it deserted President Perlman's NSA proposition. Things weren't the same after
that.

One question remains: was the result.
Wednesday the end of an era or the
beginning of a new one? This question
can apply to both parties.

pletely unexpected, but its sic was a bit
of a surprise.
The total vote of 2,891, some of which
was cast for Nebbish and Engineering
Party candidates, was oer 300 above the
1948 record and 500 above lait year's
total.
....What caused the big turnout? The Law
School rally Tuesday might have been a
factor with surprising
impact. There
hasn't been a parallel to the Law School
melodrama at UK for jears.
Ironically, the Campus Party campaign
committee had little to do with the affair.
Wednesday night, after Wainscott had
conceded the election. Jones delivered
the traditional "thank sou" speech. He
started it off by apologizing for Frank
Schollett's absence. "Frank couldn't be
here tonight," he said. The statement was
made at the SUB where die votes were
being counted.
From the practical standpoint, it will
be interesting to see what p.irt Schollett
will play in the Jones administration..
Before the end of the year Jones will
appoint his executive cabinet and the Judiciary Board. This also will be interesting.
Jones and Schollett will go into olfice
with the biggest mandate of student support any two SC executues have received
at UK. Even in 1957, when Ravcncraft
and Perlman were elected, they did not
have the majorities that the CP candidates had Wednesday. In Schollett's case,
he received a bigger majority than his
opponent had votes. He won by a majority of 816, while his opponent polled
