accomplished by their pledging a

realising a sizeable amount as proceeds. Honorary organizations also
pledged their support and cooperation.
Honorarles of the classes have
heretofore been meeting either In
various halls of the campus, or In
restaurants of the city. It was pointed out when the campaign was
begun that as the University was a
growing Institution, it would be well
to follow In the steps of larger educational institutions, where Student
Union buildings have been in existence for some time.
Such a building would provide a
place of meeting for the honorarles
and would tend to centralize the
student social life, which is at present uncentralized. The contemplated ball room would be large enough,
provided the building Is constructed,
to hold the dances of the student
body. The contemplated swimming
pool also would serve to open another branch of athletics the school
has never had and which the student
body has always desired.
Much enthusiasm has been shown
by members of the faculty and the
student body since the plan was
advocated last year. Several members of the faculty have pledged as
much as a hundred dollars, either
by direct donations or time payments, with, The Kentucky Kernel,
supporting the movement by pledging $20,000 to be made in annual
payments over a period oi years.

Student Work
Included Under New

From February 1, until the end of
the present semester. 233 Jobs for
rtudents will be available on the
campus, according to an announcement released by Dean T. T. Jones.
This is In accordance with the new
CWA aproprlation recently passed
by Congress.
The new CWA regulation provides
that the Jobs be issued to the boys
and girls in the same ratio as their
enrollment in the school. The school
Is allowed employment for 10 per
cent of the enrollment of full time
students of October 15 of last term.
This means that there will be 155
jobs for men and 78 Jobs for women.
Of these numbers, however. 25 per
cent of the Jobs must be given to
new students not in school last January, which means that there will
be Jobs for 20 new women and 38
new men.
Each student will be allowed to
work enough to earn $15 a month
beginning February 1, and ending
June 1. A minimum wage of 30
cents per hour will be paid. The
work will Include all types of work
in which students are employed
while working on the campus such
as library, lawns, dormitories, etc.
President McVey is required to
make a strict affidavit to the effect
that each student given employment
requires the help to stay In school.
According to the new CWA bill,
all colleges which are not run for
profit are allowed the same aid as
described above for the University.
Application for work under the
CWA must be made through the
office of the Dean of Men.

The volume Is dedicated to "those
bearing the heaviest of human sorrows but In whose souls there shlneth

The book, which deals with the
causes and prevention of blindness
