I   One month ago we, the officers of the Alumni Association of the Uni-
ii versity of Kentucky, presented to you the first issue of the Kentucky
if   _ Alumnus. The first issue of our new magazine had been for a long time I
ii i one of those seemingly unattainable things for which we strove. It was a
    - "Castle in the Air." However, sometimes an air castle is realized if the
i ‘   builder of that air castle dreams and plans and works enough, so we finally
E I realized our air castle in the form of this magazine. To be sure the first
  j issue was minus some of the stately corridors, towers and turretts with
A   which every important castle is well equipped, but nevertheless we feel a
i J goodly measure of pride in our achievement.
V » When the first issue was mailed, the editors had worked, thought and
 L V lived the magazine for so long that its final appearance was to them not
L   A i so very good. Still it was out, the ground had been broken and a start  
Z p   Q in the right direction had been made. But withal we were a little doubtful
`  · V ‘ . as to the reception that the members of our Association would give to our
 · . _ offering. For a week we waited without any very great number of encour-
  aging replies. Just when we began to feel that we had failed, letters
, praising the magazine began to come in in numbers. To further prove
 A that the Kentucky Alumnus had been accepted by the Alumni, payments
A for dues began to come in until at the end of the first month of the new
. i year for our Association there are more paid-up members for the year
A   just dawning than ever before at this time.
_ . · We believe that the Kentucky Alumnus has made good and that it will
A   j be a factor in building up our Association to a point where it will be of real
Q 5   benefit to our University. This' year, as last, the officers have set them-
_ l i i selves to perform certain tasks for the Association and the University. »
. Last year we promised the Kentucky Alumnus and the Alumni Directory.
g . The Alumnus you have already seen. The Directory will be out and ·
~ _ mailed to all those who have paid their dues, soon after July 1.
 s For the expressions in appreciation of the Kentucky Alumnus we are  
. deeply thankful. To know that our efforts are not going for naught hear-
 A · _ . tens us in the task that we have set for ourselves for the year just be-
`?  » ginning. A little active backing and cooperation will do much in aiding
 ` those of us who are trying to carry forward the active work of the As-
  sociation.
