$7,100.

Herman L. Donovan announced Tuesday that the Board of Trustees has authorized the construction of eight fraternity houses and
a building to house male graduate students.
President Donovan estimated that the overall project will cost
Ix'tween $1,(XK).(HX) and $1,4(X),(X)0. The cost will be defrayed by
lxmils to le amortized over a period of 30 years.
The proposal calls for fraternity
houses to have accomodations for
48 boys each, and the graduate
building to house approximately 75
students. Under the present plan
the new structures would cost between $100,000 and $125,000 each.
New fraternity
houses will be
leased to individual fraternities
after their completion. Rent paid
by the fraternities will be sufficient
to pay interest on the bonds, liquidate the debt, pay insurance and
maintain the buildings.
Fraternities occupying the new
buildings will be permitted to purchase bonds to increase their equity
in building. Dr. Donovan said. After
the bonds are paid off the same
fraternity will continue to operate
the house at a greatly reduced cost.
Houses Located
Location of the new fraternity
houses will be east of Rose Street
and south of the west wing of
Cooperstown. The graduate building
will be located in the same general
area.
The University will develop the
utilities and road ways for the new
section, and plans call for recreation areas for vqlleyball, tennis,
horseshoe, and other games. Park- -

ing areas also are planned near the
new buildings.
According to the UK president,
an architect has been employed to
design and plan the buildings. The
project has been approved by the
Kentucky Building and Property
Commission.

Although no dates were given for
the taking of bids or the start of
actual construction. President Donovan expressed hope that the new
structures would be available for
use by next September.
In an Interview last week. Dr.
Donovan said that the University
hopes to build another dormitory
for women in the near future.
Buildings Are Discrare
Dr. Donovan told the Board of
Trustees Tuesday that many of the
University's classrooms are "in deplorable condition." He declared
that White Hall is "a disgrace to
any modem university."
Predicting that by 1960 more than
10.000 students will be enrolled in
the University, Dr. Donovan told the
board that plans must be made now
for additional buildings to take care
of the greatly increased enrollment.
President Donovan Invited the
trustees to make a tour of the campus. He said there is a tendency
always to show the trustees and
other visitors our new buildings and
our better facilities, but it is just as
important that they see the wretched conditions.
"Practically every state university'
college in the United
and land-graStates has already entered upon u
great building program for living
quarters for students," he said. "The
University of Kentucky can no
longer afford to wait, hoping that
building costs will be cheaper."
Attendance Depends
Dr. Donovan declared that attendance at the University is dependent primarily upon the number
of rooms available in dormitories
fraternity and sorority houses, and
other residence halls under University control.
"There has not been a yearince
the close of the Second World War
that the enrollment of girls would
not have been at least a thousand
more if we had had proper housing
facilities for these young women,"
he said.
Hundreds of young men formerly
lived in houses near the University,
but rents in the neighborhood of the
campus have increased to a point
where rooms that are available are
priced so high that many students
cannot afford to live there now, according to the President.
"The only solution to this problem
resi, is for the University to build
dence halls for men and for women,
fraternity and sorority houses, and
apartment houses for graduate students and young faculty members."
Dr. Donovan said. "The University

A Welcome By Dr. Donovan
Greeting you who are entering the University Is indeed an imprivilege. We, the administration and faculty, warmly welcome you and hope that your life here will be full and happy. We
shall strive diligently to help you make those worthy dreams which
brought ou here come true.
The- University is a place and a spirit. It has many fine traditions and high ideals. Through the years it has trained and sent forth
thousands of eager young men and women to places of great service
and leadership in all parts of the world. The spirit of these lingers
on the campus to challenge and inspire the thousands who come to
enroll.
Becoming a student here is a privilege; it imposes an obligation
which only you yourself can discharge. It is an obligation to meet
high standards, to work, to enter wholeheartedly into the spirit of the
campus, to have faith in yourself and courage to contribute freely of
your own brains and personality; it is a challenge to observe and to
the development
learn. It is an obligation for prudent
of team spirit and the strengthening of character. Do your part, and
you will find the campus friendly, the academic load a worthy challenge and the faculty helpful friends and companions.
At times the going will be tough, and the temptation to waver
will be great. But I think, you will not fail. Remember that you are
of a select few chosen for leadership in Kentucky and the nation.
Have faith always in yourselves and in the University.
Again, we are delighted that you are here. You will find the
University a wonderful place. All of us wish for you the greatest possible measure of success.
Sincerely,

through September.
Boggs came from Dwarf. Kv. He
has had two exhibitions at the

Frof. Edward W. Rannells. professor of art, said that Bogg's drai ins,
many in colored inks, are sophisticated and tasteful small works of
art, and that one of them laoe'ed

artist: achieving an equilibrium of
forms and colors moving through a
pictoral space.
"At this stage of his development."
Mr. Rannells said, "it is evident that
this problem has artistic priority
over all others for him. So don't expect to find picturesque and nostalgic scenes of Montmartre. These
we can find in the movies. But for
sheer elegance of design, and a
touch of lyricism, too. you will find
these drawings rewarding."

THE

Life Was Far More Pleasant
And Vastly More Profitable
Days
In Those Joyous
B-I-- D

In addition to fond memories of past liottles and
blondes and pleasant thoughts on the future supply
of both commodities, the year's first football game
brings to mind one of the most unjust rulings ever
foisted off on a protesting student liody.
Back in the
days (Before Identification
Cards), a student was free to do what he wished
with his athletics ticket. If he were going out of
town for the week end or wanted to stay in and hit
the books for an upcoming
he could
always dispose of his game ticket for a tidy profit.
Many are those who used these periodic bonanzas
to finance their education. If Ik? were a slightly
more cliaritable and affluent gentleman, the student
could pass the ducat along to a roommate who
was having a
feminine friend up for
the week end.

Although slightly illegal the system worked to the
satisfaction of all concerned. Even the authorities
weren't seriously put out for there were always
enough seats in the stadium for those who wanted
to see the games.
This happy situation was changed, however, with
advent of the awesome
card. In principle

Gone in a moment were the pleasant, profitable

even more oppresive to the free peoples of the

Doled Out To College Neophytes
Every fall tlie nation's college freshmen are required to sit passively with mouths agape while
their elders spiel out advice anil platitudes concerning college life and proper collegiate decorum.
Parents, friends, professors, advisors, college editors,
and a host of others all get their chance to tell the
neophyte just how and why he should act and when
and where.

polish but at the same time don't go out of the way
to be antagonistic
it doesn't pay. Most professors
are in the business because they like it and many
will be glad to help if you're having trouble getting
the work. Teachers aren't ogres no matter how
many cartoons may depict them in that light. Many
of them are very human, and, treated as such, they
often respond remarkably well.

Some of the adv ice so generously passed out is
valid and helpful a great deal of it is ridiculous
and misleading. As one of the group
to administer this unsolicited aid, we've elected to
take a middle of the road position
to try and sift
some of the worthy advice from the useless while
also adding a little of our own.

Do your best to get an education and don't be
satisfied with learning a specialty. The engineer
who knows nothing of basic grammar, the journalist who knows nothing of art, and the musician who
knows nothing of economics are all too common a
sight as they stumble blindly through life, acting
and reacting in their own little worlds. Today we
are too dependent upon each other to afford being
blind to what the other fellow is doing
to the
forces that are operating on all of us constantly.
True, no one person can lie an expert in everything
so a certain amount of specialization is necessary.
Keep in mind though that there are other fields of
work, other viewpoints on controversial questions.
Try to learn the relationships between various
courses of study rather tlian the differences.

First of all, don't go overlxiard on this business
of studying. Certainly lxxks are important but
they're only one media of learning. Discussions,
social contacts, and experience are just as important
as any textbook. Mere "lxxik learning" is seldom
of any use unless it can le related and applied to
everyday life. It takes practical, common sense to
know what to do with what you know. Get the
work done and get it in on time, but don't turn into
a
machine while you're doing it.
Try to get along with your teachers. Don't apple

Here's The Lowdown
On Kernel's Policy
For Year To Come
It's appropriate as another school year gets under
way that we explain just what UK's student-owneand operated licwspajx'r is what its news and
editorial policies are and the position we think the
paper could and should hold on campus.
With but one or two exceptions the Kernel is the
equivalent of a professional weekly. As such its priactivities
mary interest is to report the
of our community the University. Our news
columns carry items on lioth student and faculty
doings weddings, engagements, announcements
of fraternity and club functions, faculty personals,
campus news stories, and accounts of athletic contests, both intramural and intercollegiate.
Our editorial columns are designed to interpret
campus thought and actions in what we hope is a
fair, unbiased manner. Contrary to the mutterings
of a disgruntled few, the Kernel is not a "tool" of the
Administration. At least the paper is no more a
"tool" than are the students and faculty. By law the
Administration is responsible for the operation of
the University, and to that extent, it is also responsible for the student newspaper. This fact,' however,
certainly doesn't deny 'the Kernel the right, or
rather the duty, to call attention to Administration
policies that we think are in error.
In a general way our editorial policy is in favor
of anything that will better our community. By
that we mean anything that will help make UK a
better university. We don't think a bigger university is necessarily a "tatter" one. Alr.o we Hont
think a "good" university is determined by the number of buildings on campus, but rather by the
quality of its teachers and the caliber of its graduates.
On the student side of the ledger, we think
greater student responsibility will help produce a
better school. A mature institution can't be built
with immature personalities. Of course increased
responsibility can only 1x3 granted as the students
themselves demonstrate that they're able to accept
it.
Unlike most college papers the Kernel isn't
censored although provisions for censorship do exist.
We think these provisions, should be removed. Like
their professional counterparts, the editors and staff
of any college newspaper should Ixj allowed to
stand or fall on the merits of their own judgment.
Fortunately there have been few times in the past
when it was deemed necessary to censor the paper.
In practice, if not in principle, the student editors
of the Kernel are free to say what will and what
will not go into the paper.
As a newspaper we wanV to give our readers what
they want to read. If we're off base on something
we'd appreciate a letter telling us where and how.
The Kernel is a
trust and its primary
duty is to be faithful to that trust.
