John Albert Hrlttnin, wlio lias played
guard on the Wildcat football squad
for the past two years, was elected
captain of the 1917 team at a banquet
given at the Leonard Hotel Friday
evening in honor of the sixteen men
who earned the "K" on the gridiron
this fall. About twenty friends and
supporters of the Wildcats were present, besides the regular varsity men.
Visions of an S. I. A. A. championship football team for next year were
inspired by addresses by Judge Barker, Maury Crutcher, Captain-elec- t
Brittain, Dr. J. J. Tigert, Professor
Enoch Grchan, toastmaster; Hogan
Yancey, "Doc" Rodes, Bill Tuttle, S.
A. Boles, and Curt Park.
Rumors to the effect that "Doc"
Rodes would not be seen in a Wildcat
uniform next year, were denied by
that gentleman, who said that he
would be in camp early to assist Captain Brittain in bringing a championship football team to Lexington. This
statement brought forth sighs of relief from all those present.
Captain Crutcher, Charlie Haydon
and Broadus Hickerson are the only
men on the "K" letter squad, "who
were guests of honor at the banquet
to graduate
in June, Haydon has
played only two years of intercollegiate football, while Hickerson has only
been on the varsity only one year.
Hickerson said that he will very likely
be on hand next fall and Haydon's
friends believe that he will also answer the roll call.
Captain-elec- t
Brittain lias earned
the reputation of being one of the
steadiest and most reliable men on the
Wildcat squad. No matter how much
his man outweighed him, Brit could
always be relied upon to fight and his
brilliant playing has changed many a
seeming defeat into a victory.

His subject was, "History of

tho Prohibition Movement." Profes
sor J. T. C. Noe presided.
The speaker told of the numerous
efforts to induce people to be temper
ate. The first attempt was in 1S20
when a number of reformers gathered
in Boston and pledged themselves to
drink no distilled liquors. This club
soon had a membership of 3,000,000.
This method, however, failed to eradicate the evil.
Mr. Hall said there are two methods of doing away with the liquor evil.
One is to take the drinker away from
the drink and the other is to take
The
drink away from the drinker.
latter method, the speaker said, is the
better because the drink will not come
back to the drinker.
From these meagre beginnings, the
prohibition movement has gained considerable ground, and at present over
half the states or the Union have entered the dry column. Mr. Hall said
that the prohibition forces would not
cease work until North America "is
dry from the Atlantic to the Pacific
and from the Gulf of Mexico to the
North Pole."
The two prizes offered for the best
themes on some phase of prohibition
were awarded. The first prize, a Webster's Intercollegiate Dictionary, was

Mr. Stewart's theme, which won

dainties of the pig world at his hand and in winter he
sleeps most quietly in the warmest part of a smokehouse. He never has to worry about the rules of etiquette; if he feels so inclined he inhales his soup and
buttermilk and doesn't even take the trouble to wipe his

mustache.
His is a peaceful life, and his death is the beginning
of his usefulness. He begins that life in ease and plenty
and ends it violently, it is true before he has oegun
to feel the sadness of old age and the foolishness of second childhood. No one promises him retribution for
his acts of piggishness in this world and a hell of molten
iron in the next. He does as he darn pleases, and when
he dies his human acquaintances speak more highly of
him than they do of their own departed.
But philosophy was not the object of this editorial.
We merely intended to express an appreciation of the
n
swine and to say that he gains his popularity by being just what he is, not by the specious impression he creates. Perhaps that is why certain students
of this University have the habit of making annual pilgrimages home when the slaughter begins.

"Hawg Killin"
"Hawg killin'," the Bacchanalian festival of the

not been present at the sacrificial altar and kettle when

protesting that he had not lived out his appointed three
score and ten weeks? Who has not seen that same
porker, revelling in the enjoyment of the abundant corn
and "punkins" that go to make ham what it am? Ah,
them was the happy days.
And then, the multitudinous forms he takes when
the knife has done its work! The tenderloin and the
spareribs, the backbone and the sausage, the jowl and
the shoulders and the ham and the bacon, with the
humbler, but still much beloved cracklings and chitterword with a
lings, the latter of which is a
syllable too much, are the products of his voracious eathigh-faluti- n'

ing and his powerful digestion.
It is wonderful how fortunate a pig is. He never
gets shaved with a dull razor till he is dead and can't
feel it. The high cost of existing means nothing to him;
he spends the spring with his family in fields of clover,
the summer he whiles away in a luscious mud puddle,
the autumn he spends in the fattening pen with all the
