Martha Reed Wins First


men's Oratorical Contest
Georgetown, Berea Tie
for Second Place


Miss Martha Reed, of Marion, a
senior in the College of Arts and
Science, was the winner of the first
women's oratorical contest ever held
in the state at Dicker hall, Monday
night when she contested against representatives from Georgetown
Berea. This gives to the university
the distinction of having won both of
the state oratorical contests, the one
for men and the other for women.
Miss Reed's oration was entitled,
"Woman, the Enigma of the Ages,"
and she was unanimously chosen winner.
There was a tie for second
place between Miss Dorothy Hall, of
College, whose subject
was "Prohibition and Law Enforcement," and. Miss Bertella Lee, of Berea, who spoke on "This Battle Must
Be Won" a speech also pertaining to
the prohibition question.
Other colleges which could have entered the contest forfeited their
rights, either because they had no
representative to send, or because of
illness, as the case of Transylvania

ments regarding the University which wc doubt if he could prove. We
wonder just how much longer that the legislature will be infested with such

Kentucky's greatest needs and especially those that tend to make our
grand old state move forward.

stinging rebuke was' dealt by the state senate Thursday to Senator
Frank White, of Monroe county, for his unwarranted attack upon the
University of Kentucky wheu the upper house of the state assembly passed
by a vote of 33 to 2 the measure against which he protested.
Senator White in his arraingment of the university said, as quoted by
The Herald correspondent in the senate:
"I have been told that the only thing free1 there is tuition, and that in
name, only."
The source of the heai'say eyidence upon which Mr. White bases his
dictment is not given. With very little investigation he might easily have
ascertained the facts in regard to the university, to its work and to its stu
Citizens of Lexington are familiar with the character of the stu

students work their way through school, either entirelyl or in part. They
know that many of the boys wait on tables for their board. They know that
many of them are employed by Lexington companies in full or


The University of Kentucky qffers the opportunity for education to
many boys and girls who would not have the chance to go to distant states
It is furnishing Kentucky with engineers, with men trained in farming
and others trained for county agent work, with lawyers and with teachers.
If the University of Kentucky is not "what it used to be" it is not the
fault of Kentuckians like Senator White. They have done all in their powei
to retai-- its growth and progress and to keep it a nineteenth century relic.
If the state has not made sufficient appropriations for caring for many of the
students at small cost the blame for this certainly can not be placed at the
door of the administration.
Those who can see at close view the workings of the university know
that it was never doing more to serve the state and to fulfill the purposes
for which it was created. They know that it is opening the door to learning
to many to whom the door would be closed were it not for this institution.
The overwhelming defeat of Senator AVhite's effort reveals the con
fidence of themembership of the Kentucky senate in the university.

The budget bills which have passed both houses provide a special ap
period of
propriation of about $185,000.,00 for the
.1927-'2This sum is to be used in the payment of $150,000.00 for the
women's dormitory and a part in making first and second payment of 103
acres of land for the experiment station farm and which connects two
tracts now owned by the University. $10,000.00 of the above sum is
appropriated for each of the summer school sessions to be held in 192G and
1927. We asked for about $700,000.00 expecting to be able to erect two large
recitation buildings but these buildings will have to be forgotten for the
present duo to lack of funds.
The house passed a bond issue bill which if passed by the people will
give to the University $3,000,000.00 for its extension program. This sum
is to be used over a period of five years. It is expected that by the time
that this goes to press that this bond measure will have passed the senate
and that the Governor will have signed the same. As soon as it becomes a
law we will discuss it in detail in order that our friends may know its pro
visions and assist in securing its passage by the voters of the common

The newly elected Captain, Paul Jenkins, earned this position by renl
merits. We congratulate him on being able to make the
Paul displayed at all times the things thnt go to make n real bnskctbnll player. It Is up to him to take what Captain Carey has passed on to him nnd produce the champion team of the South in 1927. We know that the alumni

that it Is possible for them to do. We'll look to the next season with great
interest and nnticipation and wntch Captain Jenkins march forward in the

Their more permanent leader, the coach will also go forward with the

One of the most successful high school basketball tournaments that has
ever been held at the University' of Kentucky, or anywhere else in the
state closed last Saturday night with the St. Xavier Boys and Mays- ville Girls carrying off the championships of their respective classes in
the state.
We wish to congratulate all teams taking part in these contests for
their fine sportsmanship manner and to say that we wish that more teams
could have taken part in them.
Great credit is due the athletic department of the University for the
excellent manner in which it handled thet.e contests and we want this department to know that the alumni appreciate the great work that it is doing
for the University in bringing these young men and women to the University for these games. These yount: people are brought into contact
with real university life and if they have not already hud a desire to come
to the University they certainly cannot leave one of these tournaments
without having some thought of securing u higher education.
We want
these young people to enter our University for we believe that they are
of the class that will make the lett tti.dents and after they have finished
their university course will be leaders in whatever vocation they may choose
and will be valuable alumni of the institution.
We trust that the athletic department will continue to have greut
success with these contests and to Interest young men and women in the
