After the confusion over the voting, Henry Neel told the members

President Smith also censured the

UK is back in the middle of the basketball scan-i- s
bad. but what makes it even more unpalatable to
us is the fact that the administration has taken no
definite steps to pet the. matter completely cleared
up so that UK can start to rebuild its good name
'
in athletics.
University officials have had definite knowledge
of the scandal since the middle of October when
the first UK players were arrested, but they have
yet to take any real st:md in the matter. Instead
they have been content to let things drag along,
watching the University receive more and more'
bad publicity.
The University, it seems to us, had an obligation
to institute an investigation of its own and to find
out just where it stood. After O'Connor came to
UK and talked to administration officials it would
have lxhooved them to Jake some type of stand, at
least in the ease of the two lxiys who were then
enrolled here in schoob:!
If tlie administration had thought that the players were guilt)', it should have seen that justice
was done. If it thought tlie players were innocent,
it was certainly the UfGversity's place to see that
they were cleared as ojiyckly as possible.

The
attitude which has been
taken by UK officials has done nothing to improve
the situation of the University in the ?yes of the
public. Actually, the oSiiy move that showed any
inclination on the part df the administration or faculty at UK to take anydefinite action concerning
the improvement of tlirithletic system was Coach

If the
any indication of the success of the IFC program
to improve fraternity standing, fraternities can be
expecting another pointed letter from Col. Wilson
of the National Scholarship Committee.
The study classes were probably the most valuable part of the IFC study recommendations and
from all appearances they were a failure at least
from the attendance standpoint. Other recommendations will no doubt have the same results as
long as they remain merely recommendations.
The success of Saturday's Help Day has put at
least a temporary end to one of the major criticisms
of fraternities. It is a shame that the IFC has not
taken a definite action to put an end to the .conditions that lead to another major .criticism poor
scholarship.
It is not too late yet for the IFC to take definite
action to see that their program is put into effect
by the fraternities. Nor is it too late for students,
whether or not they are fraternity members, to get
expert study help and career guidance from the
Personnel Office, located in the Administration
Building.

gave the following advice:
, "A student cannot get through the University on
sheer capacity alone," Mr. Martin said. "Good work
habits are as important as capacity." It is important that the student be motivated, he said. Specific
goals must be reached through study. Therefore
social life may well be a study goaL
There is a direct relationship between grade
points and the salary of college graduates in executive positions. "If you were not in school, he asked,
how many hours would you spend working? Forty?
Do you spend that much time combining class time
and study?" Only two pledges present said yes.
The average college u graduate earns $100,000
over a

period of 40 years. ' That means 50 percent make
more. "Therefore, society is paying you $25,000 for
each year spent in college," Mr.,Martin stated.

Devil Attends Trial
Of Frat Hell Week
By Paul Knapp

"What's this!" cried the Devil, nearly falling off
his brimstone
"They can't do (his to me,"
he again reiterated.
The Devil was grimacing at the latest edition of
the Kernel which had made its way to the nether
"
'
regions.
"Help Week Introduced On Campus By IFC,"
he read. "So that's the way they're going to do
me after all I've done for them."
"Why, here I am going through the pangs of
Religious Emphasis Week, and I hear that my own
week Hell Week is practically a thing of the past.
It just isn't democratic!"
With this, the Devil threw the Kernel into the
furnace. "There's gonna be something done about
tlu's!" he exclaimed, "I demand a fair trial!"

ers, Harry Truman, Paul Douglas, Douglas
Estes Kefauver, Fred Vinson, and Paul
Hoffman, split the remaining small percentages. .
Students were also asked to chose between Eisenhower and Truman, and also between Taft and ,
Truman. In both instances, Truman lost out. .Many
students had no opinion about any of these candidates.
When asked, "If Robert Taft and Harry Truman
oppose each other in the 1952 presidential election,
which one would you prefer to win?", the answers
were: Taft, 46 percent; Truman, 29 peroent; and no
opinion, 25 percent.
And for Eisenhower vs. Truman: Eisenhower, 71
percent; Truman, 16 percent; and no opinion, 13
percent.
Every section of the country is overwhelmingly
in favor of Eisenhower, as opposed to Truman, but
the Taft vs. Truman results indicate certain sectional differences.
Tlie midwist, for example, is strongest for Taft.
A 6chool in Indiana and another in Iowa are 75
percent Taft supporters, 14 percent, Truman.
Students in Taft's home state of Ohio are on the
average, somewhat less in favor of him than students in other parts of the country.
'
Truman is strongest, not in the smith, where the
vote between him and Taft is about even, but in
the far West. The University of California was the
of all schools polled.

Each study period should be scheduled for the
same time each week, Mr. Martin advised.
A student should have a definite place to study,
preferably in the library during the day, he said.
If studying at home, it should be in a definite place,
with good ventilation, light, and free from noise,
