In a statement released after the

when organized gambling is making
such terrible inroads upon the moral

highly significant when an
group such as SGA takes a
firm stand against this decaying

"We do not believe that anyone
can be sympathetic with the crimi- nal group which brought about the
degradation of three of the University's finest athletes.
"The fact that these boys would
succumb to the lure of money of- lered them ty sucn persons gives us

Open season on UK men starts
That's the opening date
for Sadie Hawkins week
the time
when the girls do the asking and
the paying for one week.
Originally, Sadie Hawkins Day
appeared in the Li'l Abner comic
strip. It was created to give the
bachelor eirls of TVipnnich mi an.
nual chance, no holds barred, at the
eligible Dogpatch men. In a manner of speaking, the men ran for
their lives.
Here at UK, most people seem to
feel that the girls are attractive
enougn to obtain men in a more
normal way. The loewl obsrVpnce
of the custom serves to give the
girls a chance to do their own choos-- ;
ing. sort of declare their preference.
Then too. it gives the
male purse a usually
rest.
Climax of the week's activities
w ill be the annual Sadie Hawkins
race and dance Saturday. Keys,
sophomore men's honorary, sponsors
both.
Saturday morning, any eligible
men wno haven't been caught

Miss Traubel. a dramatic soprano,
is the first American-bor- n
artist to
sing two favorite Wagnerian roles,
Brunhilde ar d Isolde, at the Metropolitan. She made her Metropolitan
debut in 1939. in Wagner's "Die
Walkure."
Prior to her operatic and concert
career. Miss Traubel first received
vocal training as a choir soloist in
her native city of St. Louis. Mo.
During a visit to St. Louis. Walter
Damrosch heard Miss Traubel's
voice and wrote a special part for
her into his opera. The Man Without a Country." This opera was produced at the Metropolitan in 1936.
Following her appearance in the
Damrosch opera. Miss Traubel went
into radio, then retired for a year of
study. In 1939 she received recognition after a recital at New York's
Town Hall. Shortly afterwards she
made her debut at the Metropolitan.
Since her opening performance,
the Wagnerian soprano has received
recognition from musical organizations throughout the country. The
Associated Press, in its poll of editors, selected her "the woman of the
year in music" for two successive
years.
Nw Touring Nation
Joining Miss Traubel for the concert will be the Cleveland Orchestra,
new in its thirty-fourseason. The
orchestra is continuing its tours
throughout this section of the country under the baton of George SzelL
its musical director and conductor
since 1946.
The orchestra, composed of 100
musicians, has a winter season of 30
weeks in which 151 concerts are
given. In addition to the concert
tours, Sunday afternoon "Twilight"
concerts and children's concerts are
presented in Cleveland.
During the summer "Pops" concerts are given under the direction
of the associate conductor, Rudolph

J-Dedication

vvk iloons

The source, a bit unusual Uv an almost philosophic article on
today's youth, was Time inag.iin.e. The article was entitled
simply: The Youime'r C. Deration." The content would merit
reading by every I'niversity stmt nt.
Attempts at the analy.ation of the youth of today and yesterday are made often. For the nvtst part they are superficial, not
reallv seeing the real issues. "The Younger Generation" is no such
article. It deals with the subject in a realistic and thorough
manner.
"Perhaps more than any of its predecessors, this generation
wants a good secure job . . . youth's ambitions have shrunk.
Few youngsters txlay want to mine diamonds in South Africa,
ranch in Paraguay, climb Mount Everest, find a cure for cancer,
sail around tle world, or build an industrial empire. Some would
like to own a small independent business, but most want a good
job with a big firm . . ."
Dominant Characteristic Security Consciousness
Tims Time outlines what is probably the dominant characteristic of today's youth security consciousness. Of course, it wasn't
reallv necessary to have Time tell us, we see it every day . . .
and hear it in the halls, and bull sessions:
"These humanities courses are all right for some people teachers, say but how is it to help me a physics major get. a job?"
"This army career idea looks good to ine. Get the right job
and with that retirement plan they got, you're in."
Time gives several probable reasons for this desire for security:
tlie lack of new worlds to conquer, the war, the effect of the depression, and the like. These may well lx the reasons, but they
aren't too valid. The worlds to conquer are still there, but youth
no longer looks for them. The war and depression hit just as
hard at those who were security conscious before them.
Can Vc Traduce Any Real Leaders?
Can a generation w ith such an outlook produce real leaders?
Time's answer, a quote from a 26 year old promotion manager:
"Sure I'd like to do something on my own, but I want to get
well fixed first make plenty of money and then maybe start some
innovations."
Quite a bit different from the answer you. probably would have
gotten from the "Flaming Youth" of F. Scott Fitzgerald's era.
Sure, that generation was radical and scatterbrained; they took,
np the cross of wild causes and crusades; they made mistakes and
plenty of them. Hut they did something as individuals.
A couple of characteristics of today's youth might seem an im
provement. . . . The younger generation seems to drink less.
"There is nothing glorious or inglorious any more about getting
As a whole it is more
stewed
it is less showy alxiut sex.
sober and conservative, (.than its parents were) . . . considering
that its parents gave the younger generation few standards, few
ideals, and an education increasingly specialized . . . youth's
morals have turned out far better than anyone has a right to hope."

...

...

Today's Youth Has No Heroes
of the overall conserva-tivenes- s
But, perhaps this is only a
of our age, foralong with these are listed "stodgy intel- lectualism" and the following characteristic which, after the past
few weeks, hits rather hard here at UK: "Present day youth has
no living heroes and few villains. Said a professor of sociology:
"Ve spend all our time debunking. . . . We've even done it in
the snorts world. Kids today have to go all the way back to Babe
Ruth to find a hero."
Maylie the debunking isn't even necessary today. Athletes
who could lie heroes take care of that themselves pretty often.
And so we see youth today a rather colorless creature, searching for religion without finding it, mature in the sense that it no
longer looks or strives for the "great tomorrow" of twenty years
ago, and yet not cynical because it never really expected anything
in the first place.
Somehow we kinda yearn for the "Roaring Twenties" when
along with all the wilclness and childishness there was at least
hope.

Program At

Thanks to the Daughters of the
Confederacy, a symbol of our southern heritage can now be found in
Prazee Hall. The organization presented a portrait of John Hunt Morgan, painted by Mrs. Laura Spurr
Welch, to the University. The painting was accepted at a service held
Thursday, Oct. 25, by Dr. T. D. Clark,
head of the history department. At
the program the Kappa Alpha Band
played "Dixie"; the artist gave a
history of the picture; Bacon Moore,
Kappa Alpha, reviewed the life of
Morgan, Confederate officer in the
Civil War. The picture was unveiled,
and now hangs in the History Department, as a reminder of the man
who led the Kentucky regimental
guard for the Confederacy.

Tau Sigma will entertain all members of Student Union committees
with a program of dancing in the
Music Room of the SUB at 7 p.m.
on Nov. 29.

There is certainly one item on the Herman Ellis, secretary-treasure- r.

examinations in foreign
languages are being given at UK
again this year.
As far as I can see there is no
advantage or reason for such tests.
Why should students who have taken
a language course and passed it be
made to take an extra test before
getting credit for the course?
Only, six hours of a foreign language are required by the College of
Arts and Sciences, but to get credit
for these six hours, the student must

not cooperMting with them when all
they have to do is ask for assistance.
When Suky members had to pay
part of thoir way to Florida and the
band went expenses paid, Suky let
it be known that the band did not
earn its trip to Florida. The Marching One Hundred mpmbers did not
tnke this lightly as they must practice long. har;l hours in all kinds of
weather while Suky has an easy job
in comuarison.
I believe, first of all, that The
Marching One Hundred should be
kept an active organization the year
round instead of disbanding after
the football season and. secondly, by
having parades and pep rallies before basketball and football games
with cheerleaders, band, and Suky
cooperating.

Dear Editor:
It seems as if Suky and the band
can't get together at the football
games. Suky competes with the band
by having its card
at half-tim- e
tricks at the same time the band
is marching down the field trying
to put on a good show.
The band practices long hours in
all kinds of weather and then
marches in the freezing cold while
Suky sits in its section with plenty
of coats, etc., hoias up colored cards
and tries to stenl the show.
If Suky could work with the band
show and in the
in the half-tim- e
yells, it seems to me the school
spirit could be improved. And if the
cheerleaders, Suky. the
